WHITE HOUSE, WASHINGTON. D. C.
•On* of the most aristocratic faces seen in Washington is that of Mr*. Bemple,
'hter of President Tyler. She has passed her 80th year nnd yet retains an exceed
\ youthful complexion. Personally she is charming, and impresses one as stepping
jf' the European courts,” so says the National Magazine, under the heading “Boci&l
lights at the Capital.”
The following is a letter from this interesting lady, written from the Louise Home,
hington. D. C., to the Peruna Medicine Co., of Columbus, Ohio, concerning their
t catarrh tonic, Peruna. Mrs. Semple writes:
Gentlemen —“ Your Peruna Is a most valuable remedy. Many oi
friends have used It with the most flattering results and 1 can
imend It to all who need a strengthening tonic. It is Indeed a
tarkable medicine.” Sincerely, Letetia Tyler Semple.

had a practice sufficiently large, I
deemed, to warrant my taking apart

doctor with an air of prosperity which
people like to encourage and add to.
A month later I was comfortably, al
most elegantly, established on the first
floor of a handsome north side apart

woman to act as my housekeeper and
“Pretty well fixed, old man, eh?”
said Jack Winters, my college class
mate and chum, who had come over
that evening from the west side to
make a housewarming for ‘me. “All
you need to complete your happiness
is to get acquainted with the pretty
widow on the floor above you. She’s

“Thank you,” I said, checking Jack’s
enthusiasm —Jack always goes off on
z tangent when a pretty woman is dis
cussed. “I am trying to get patients,
and have no time for social pleasures,
and, besides, I don’t mind saying it,
Jack, I'm not fond of widows.”
“All I have to say to that is,” said
Jack, “you don't know Mrs. Traine.”
However, my professional duties
were not 30 arduous that I did not find
time to notice a trim little figure that
flitted in and out through the big en
trance door, dressed always exquisite
ly, but quietly.
My interest in Mrs. Traine deepened
when I heard her story. Her husband
had been killed in a railway accident
three years before. The insurance
money was almost gone, and the little
widow added to the income that must
support herself and invalid mother by
giving music lessons to a few wealthy

brown hair, tossed in truant curls
about the low forehead, a voice that
spoke always gently, blue eyes full or
mirth, and a complexion that looked
like it had been bathed in the morning
Once or twice I held the big door
open for her to pass out, and bowed in
response to the low “thank you.” Ear
ly after my coming to the building a
boy on the top floor had been accom
modating enough to get hurt in the ele
vator, and I had been called in as the
most available physician. Luckily, I
brought the boy through so well that
his parents, as well as the youngster
himseif, sounded my praises so loudly
that 1 found myself with quite a repu

the neighborhood. Still, I had not met
Mrs. Traine, and I was beginning wick-
Mly to hope that some accident —eve*
jo slight a one, of course—might hap

that 1 might have the joy of caring for
her. However, the fates preserved Mrs.
Traine from accident, and I continued

turned to face me.
“You can’t make a jump from that
window, my man," I said. “You had
better be quiet.”
I turned the lock again, but Mrs.
Traine, divining my purpose, clung to
my arm. “Don’t go.” she cried fran
tically. “We can’t stay ’here alone a
minute.” Then, to my relief, the same
small boy who had served me so well
professionally appeared on the thresh
old, attracted by the cries. Off he
went to call the police, while I tried
to quiet two hysterical women.
In a few minutes the burglar was
handcuffed and led away, but the shock
had proved too much for Mrs. Traine’a
invalid mother. The fainting spell was

One evening I stayed for tea. Mrs.

That afternoon I took Mrs. Traine
and her mother for a drive, and was
rewarded by another invitation to tea.
A reason for such close attention to
my patient was no longer apparent. I
was hunting about in my mind for an
other excuse to prolong the delightful
calls when Mrs. Traine knocked at my
door one evening.
“I have come to you on business,”
she said, taking the seat I offered her.
"You have been kind to mother,” she
went On. “Of course, we want to pay
you for your trouble. Would you mind

“Yes, it is a large bill,” I said, slow
There was a quick uplifting of the
blue eyes. “I hope,” she said, softly,
“that you won’t mind if we don’t pay
it quite all at once; if we could ar
range to pay you so much every week
until the bill is settled.”
“No,” I said, In business-like tones.
“I would prefer to have the whole bill
settled for at once.”
My heart smote me for the alarm in
the face that was lifted to mine. 1
leaned forward and took her hand.
“Do you know how much my bill will
be? Well, it’s a great deal. Nothing
less than the giving of your own self
to me, my darling, will satisfy my
claim against you.”
“You mean ” said Mrs. Traine,
the blushes diffusing her pale face.

said, drawing her head down upon my
shoulder. “Is the price too great?”—
Japan Needs Foreign Capital.
The Japanese government has taken
one step which should have the ef
fect of introducing a little of the
much-needed foreign capital. It has
granted permission for foreigners to
become owners of shares in Japanese
railways. The treaties do not ex
plicitly forbid such ownership, but in
asmuch as it would amount to an in
direct ownership of land the authori
ties have hitherto hesitated to sanc
tion the privilege. Moreover, the by
laws of many railway companies con
tain a clause restricting the tenure
of their shares to Japanese subjects.
Within ::ie last six months applica
tion was made to have these restric
tions removed, and the government
has granted permission in the case of
the principal railways of the country.
