The cause is inside bad circulation. The blood is stagnant, the veins flabby. The bowel walls are weak, the parts almost dead. To quickly and safely rid yourself of piles you must' free the circulation send a fresh current through the stagnant pools. Internal treatment is the one safe method. J. S. Leonhardt, M. D., set at work some years ago to find a real internal Pile remedy. He succeeded. He named his prescription HEM-ROID, and tried it in 1,000 cases before he was satisfied. Now Hem-Roid is sold by druggists every where under guarantee. It's easy to take, and can always be found at the Brattle boro Drug Co., who will gladly refund the purchase price to any dissatisfied cus tomer.

VI "IV. ) I QeM) HOUSE MYSTERY ) S7U KlMtoaCompary (Continued From Our Last Issue) From the beginning Antony had 8een this answer coming and had drawn back from it. For, if Mark had been killed, It seemed such a cold-blooded killing. Was Cayley equal to it? Bill would have said "No," because Bill wouldn't have kilied anybody In cold blood himself, and because he took It for granted that other people behaved pretty much as he did. But Antony had no such illusions. Mur ders were done; murder had actual ly been done here, for there was Robert's dead body. Why not an other murder? Had Mark been in the office at all that afternoon? The only evidence (other than Cayley's, which obvious ly did not count) was Elsie's. Elsie was quite certain that she had heard his voice. But then Bill had said that It was a very characteristic voice an easy voice, therefore, to imitate. If Bill could imitate it so successfully, why not Cayley? . But perhaps it had not been such a cold-blooded killing, after alL Sup pose Cayley had had a quarrel with his cousin that afternoon over the girl whom they were both wooing. Suppose Cayley had killed Mark, either purposely. In sudden passion, or accidentally, meaning only to knock him down. Suppose that this had happened in the passage, say about two o'clock, Suppose Cayley there, with the body at his feet, feel ing already the rope round his neck; his mind darting this way and that in frantic search for a way of es cape; and suppose that suddenly and irrelevantly he remembers that Robert is coming to the house at three o'clock that afternoon auto matically he looks at his watch in half an hour's time. ... Antony pictured to himself Cayley In the passage, standing over the dead body of his cousin, and work ing it out. How could Robert be made to seem the murderer, if Robert were alive to- fieny it? But suppose Robert were dead, too? He looks at his watch again. (Only twenty-five minutes now.) Suppose Robert were dead, too? Robert dead In the office, and Mark dead In the passage how does that help? Mad ness! ' But if the bodies were brought together somehow . . .And Robert's death looked like suicide? & & f Was It possible? Madness again. Too difficult. (Only twenty minutes now.) Too difficult to arrange in twenty minutes. Can't arrange a suicide. Too difficult . ... . Only nineteen minutes. ... if And then the sudden inspiration! Robert dead in the office, Mark's body hidden 'in the passage impos sible to make Robert seem the mur derer, but how easy to make Mark! Robert dead and Mark missing; why. It Jumped to the eye at once. Mark had killed Robert accidentally; yes, that would be more likely and then had run away. Sudden panic . . . (He looks at his watch again. Fif teen minutes, but plenty of time now. The thing arranges itself.) Was that the solution. Antony wondered. It seemed to fit in with the facts as they knew them; but then, so did that other theory which he had suggested to rill in the morn ing. "Wlilch one?" said Bill. They were sitting In the copse above the pond, from which the In spector and his fishermen had now withdrawn. Bill had listened with open mouth to Antony's theory, and save for an occasional "By Jove!" had listened in silence. "Smart man. fall!

"That Mark had killed Robert ac cidentally apd had gone to Cayley for help, and that Cayley, having hidden him in the passage, locked the office door from the outside and hammered on it." "Yes, but you were so dashed mys terious about that. I asked you what the point of it was, and you wouldn't eay anything.". He thought for a little, and then went on, "I suppose you meant that Cayley de liberately betrayed Mark, and tried to make him look like a murderer? "I wanted to warn you that we should probably find Mark In the passage, alive or dead." "And now you don't think so?" "Now. I think that his dead body is there." "Meaning that Cayley went down and killed him afterward after you ' i i. '.A ' T "SEE ANYTHING?" SAID AN TONY AT LAST. had come, after the police had come?" "Well, that's what I sh;lnk from. BilL It's so horribly cold-blooded. Cayley may be capable of it, but I hate to think of it.' "But, dash it all, your other way is cold-blooded enough. According to you, he goes up 'to the office and de liberately shoots a man with whom he has no quarrel, whom he hasn't seen for fifteen years!" "Yes. but to save his own neck. That makes a difference. And I think that Mark's dead body is in the passage now, and has been there since, say, half-past two yesterday afternoon. And tonight Cayley is going to hide 'it in the pond." Bill pulled at the moss on the ground beside him. threw away a handful or two, and said slowly, "You may be right, but it's all guess-work, you know." Antony laughed. "Good Lord, of course it Is." he said. "And tonight we shall know if it's a good guess or a bad one," Bill brightened up suddenly. "Tonight." he said. "I say, to night's going to be rather fun. How do we work it?" Antony was silent for a little. "Let's put ourselves In Cayley's place," said Antony, puffing slowly at his pipe. "He's got the body, or whatever it is, in the passage. What will he do next?" "Come 'out again," said Bill help fully. "Yesr but which end?" Bill sat up with a start, "By Jove, you mean that he will go out at the far end by the bowling green?" "Do't you think so? Just imagine him walking across, the lawn In full view of the house, at midnight, with a body in his arms. He can get out by the bowling green, and then come to the pond without ever being in sight of the house at alL" "You're right. Now. what's the next thing?" "The next thing is to mark the exact place in the pond where he Cash In On Foresight Be fortified against elements beyond your con trol. Let this strong agency carry the burden of the blow. GEORGE M.

But if it's some thing we can't Identify from a dis tance, then we must -try and get it out. To see whether It's worth tell ing the police about." j "Y yes' said Bill; wrinkling his forehead. "Of course, the trouble with water is that one bit of it looks pretty much like the next bit. I don't know if that had occurred to you. "It had." smiled Antony. 'Let's come and have a look at it." They walked to the edge of the copse, and lay down there in silence, looking at the pond beneath them. "See anything?" said Antony at last. ' . ; "What?" - ' . "The fence on the other side." "What about It?" "Well, it's .rather useful, , that's all." . "Said Sherlock Holmes enlgmati cally," added Bill. "A moment later, his friend Watson had burled him into the pond." Antony laughed. x "I love being Sherlocky," he said. "It's very unfair of you not to play up to me." "Why Is that fence useful, my dear Holmes?" said Bill obediently. "Because you, can take a bearing on it. You see" "Yes, you needn't stop to explain to me what a bearing is." "I wasn't going to. But you're lying here" he looked up "under neath this pine-tree, Cayley comes out in the old boat and drops his parcel In. You take a line from here on to the boat, and mark it off on the fence there. Say it's the fifth post from the end. Well, then I take a line from my tree we'll find one for me directly and it comes on to the twentieth post. say. And where the two Unas meet, there shall the eagles be gathered together. Q. E. D. And there, I almost forgot to remark, will the taller eagle, Beverley by name, do his famous diving act. As performed nightly at the Hippodrome." Bill looked at him uneasily. "I say, really? It's beastly dirty water, you know." "I'm afraid so. BI1L So It is writ. -ten in , the book oi Jasher." "Of course I knew that one of us would have to, but I hoped oh, well, it's a warm night." "Just the night for a bathe." agreed Antony, getting up. "Well now, let's have a. look for ray tree." They walked down to the margin of the pond and, then looked back. Bill's tree stood up and took the . evening, tall and unmistakable, fifty feet nearer to heaven than its neighbors. Bui it had its fellow at the other end of the copse, not quite so tall., perhaps, but equally con spicuous. i "That's where I shall be." said Antony, pointing to it. "Now. for the Lord's sake, count your posts ac curately." "Thanks very much, but I shall do It for my own sake," said Bill with feeling. "I don't want to spejid the " whole night diving." "Fix on the post in a straight line with you and the splash, and then count backward to the beginning of the fence." "Right, old boy. Leave It to me. I can do this on my head." "Well, that's how you will have to do the last part of it." said Antony with a smile. He looked at his watch. It was nearly time to change for dinner. They started to walk back to the house together. At midnight the pond was waiting for them, more solemn in the moon light. The trees which crowned the sloping bank on the tar side of it were mysteriously silent. It seemed that they had the world very much to themselves. Almost unconsciously Antony spoke In a whisper. "There's your tree, there's mine. As long as you don't move, there's no chance of .hid seeing you. Af'er he's gone, don't come out till 1 do. He won't be here for a quarter of an hour or so, so don't be impatient." "Righto," whispered Bill. Antony gave him a nod and a smile, and they walked off to their posts. (Continued in Our Next Issue) g H 3 3 By, Edwins ANi T ir NOW WHETHER.
