7 SELECTED STORY, At tlio Eud of n Larlnt. All sorts nnd couditlonB of men and womon camo togothor in Uiocftttledays. II was ouo of tho pcculiar fcatures of tho tinio that thorc nevor wns asked tho questlon, " VVho nro you ?"

Whon ho did not do bo ho found thnt thcro was likely to bo n hint thnt ho could not nfford to ncglect nnd ho oboyed. Whon Jamcs Sorton cnmo to tho Cimmnrron ranch nnd introducod him Bolf as tho youngcr son of a weallhy New Englandor, diflinherited bocause of his fondness for tho sports of tho plninB, ho was bclioved. Ho lookcd it. His admirablo form and charming rann ners as mnnnors wont in thono days won to him tho mon nnd womon of tho scttlomeuts nnd mado him tho fricnd of tho ranch boya whonevor ho mot thcm. Somo of tho boys will yot remombor him nnd tho livcly part ho playod in tho drama of tho lnttor 003. Kivnlriea that nro now turned to wards tho mauagomont of tho corpora tions and tho manipulating of tho priccs of stock wore then in thnt scc tion dcvoted to tho handling of herds, and tho ranch that had tho Targest nnd most cnorgetic forco of cowboys wns tho one that had tho bottor fortuno in that liue. Sorten, who soon gaincd tho titlo of "Yellow-back." bccauso of his customnry clothes of bright aaffrou, was the leador of tho rustlorB. Ho could scent n maverick farther thau any ono along tho trail, and woo to tho herder that allowed a bunch to remain out on the prairie over night it was likely to bo misBing for good. Of courao thoro was nn cffort to put a atop to tho prnctice of running in the wandercra, for at least a reaBonablo timo after tho flnding of the Bame. But who could provont it ? Sorten went to tho trail every night to see if thero wero any wanderers who needed protection f rom tho blizzards, and often roturned with two or threo that had strayed from somo pasaing hord. Ono night ho did notroturn aa soon as usual and whon ho cnmo in it was with a white face and agitation written upon his wholo body. "What's tho matter, JimV" asked tho chief herder. "Soen a ghoat?" asked another. " No, but I tell you, boys," wore his words, " I'vo seen tho fastest rider that over was in this valloy." " Tell us about it." " Thoro ain't nothin' to tell. I was over in the upper ravino looking for any a-wanderin' steors that might bo necdin' caro an' had found two, whon along come a atrangcr on horscback and ordered mo to git. I don't take nny man'a sass, and I told him bo. What did that critter do but givo a whoop an' scare them ateera bo that thoy went bellowin' down tho ravino. I followed of course, an' whon I saw there wnsn't no chance to git them homo turned round to look at the other one. He sat on his hosa as quiet as you please, an' when I looked at him smiled, then with another whoop start ed after the ateera himaelf, an' what do you think, in a minute ho had 'om in hia lino an' wae drivin' 'em home which I take it is over the othor side of the trail." Itappeared afterwards that he had tried to overtako the atrangcr, but fail cd hence hia perturbation. Tho boya all laughed at him a good deal, and ho fairly haunted the trail to catch an other glimpae of the mysterious visitor. But it was a week before ho was aatia fied. A day off was given the cowboya by reason of the failure of a herd to get in from the farther range, and we all went up to tho town for a lime. Jim was looking for eomething all tho timo, and when bb we came within a milo of the aettlement he cnught sight of a sorrol horse nhead of us he gave a little cry of joy and sank tho spurs into the tlanks of his pony viciouBly. We followed and wore by his side when tho sorrel wa8 overtaken. Then we noticed some thing that wo had not becn aware of before the rider of tho aorrel was a woman. Jim's faco was a atudy. Ho waa so aure of hia game, and when it came as it did he wilted. But he braced up a little aud began a conversatlon. It waa the daughtor of tho chief herder acrosa tho river, and she was about as pretty a piciuro as often cnmo to tbo oycs of the herders in the territory. She laugh ed and joked with Jim, and ho deeorted us to bo by hor side. Wo rode and lef t them togothor. That was tho beginning, and for about a month Jim and his girl woro the talk of tho country around. They wore atuck on euch other if auy two over were, and rodo up and down tho rangcs llko wandering twin spirita. Once Jim was scarod on tho rango uain, and this timo ho swore thnt tho visitor mndo him glve up ten hend of the flncst calvcs thnt ho had evcr laid cyes on. But nono of us Baw tho stran ger aud tho opinion of tho ranch was that Jim was a little leary that night. Ono day tho order camo to go to tho aouthwest after a herd and drive north. It mcant two months of hnrd riding and how Jim did hato itl Ho rodo over to aee hia girl for good by, and thoy had an affecting parting, I ruess. She lovod him and wanted to tnarry him beforo ho wont, but Jim wouldn't hnvo it so, though ho prom iaed thnt it ahould be dono aa soon as ho returnc'd. That was tho yearof tho caltlo suffer ing on tho plains bccauso of tho rain and aleet. The herdB woro unnblo to get from tho ico the wot grass boneath and starved and froze to death on tho northern plains. In tho torritory thoro was no suffering of thia sort, but tho cold rain mado it hard for tho cowboys, and they had tbo tougbost timo thoy had ever seen to keep wnrm white on ttio rango. Thoy rode un and down tho lines wrappeu in bicr blanketa and with all tho scarfa thoy could gather around their uecka. One night aa tho Btorm was worat tnero camo along tbo trail a little Thousands of men iti lonely hoines call Tip the pictures of tlie lovcd nnd lost ones, who mitrlit stlll be lmppy husbatlds with henlthy babies prattHnir at their knccs, If they had only becn a little more observant and tliottghtful. When n woman's cotn plexion gets palc and sallow and hcr eycs look hcavy; whcn she is evidently nervous nnd despondctit, and complnins of paius nnd aches and draRKitiR down and burninR sensationsj a wise man shonld know that she is suflerinr; from weakncss or disease In a womanly way. The thouRhtful man who rcallzes this will at once ndvisc his wifc to consult some eminent nnd sklllful special ist. He will know that tho average physi clan will insist tipon the obnoxious exatn inations and local treatmcnt so embarrass ing to tuodest, sensiti vc wotnen. Hc should know that these ordeals are unnecessary. Dr. R. V. Picrce is an eminent nnd skillfut speciallst, who has been for thirty years chief consuUitijr physician to the Invalids' Ilotel and Suffrical Institutc, at Buffalo, N. Y. Diirinc; that time. with the assist nncc of n staff of ablc physicians, hc has prescribed for tnany thottsands of wotn en, He is the invcntor of a wonderful medicine for tlic special weaknesses of women, that cure9 in the jirivacy of the home.

It corrects all irrefrulnrities nnd stops all de bilitating drains. Medlcine dealers sell it and have nothing "just as good." W. R. Malcolm, liq., of Knobcl, Clay Co., Ark., writcs: " My wifc for pcrhaps four months previous to the blrth of our child took the ' Pa vorite Prescription.' Thh strengthened her en tlre system, nnd chlld-blrth, to her, was vcry easy, beinff nttended with little paln. Ourbaby Ruth ls 13 montlis old aud sbe has never been lck a day." hord not moro thnn 200 half-etarved cattlc that had evidently been berdod tbrough tho summoron thoir way north and had not bcon pushed faBt enough. In the camp wagon that wns with them wns a woman. She camo to tho ranch houso to get somo food nnd wo kept hor thore all night, tho cook's wifc sharing a bed with her. Tho girl for she was not more thnn a child asked if we knew a Jim Morris. Of courao wo did not, but when tho noxt morning she took from her neck a locket and open- mg it, suowed us tue tace of " Xellow back " wo all looked blank enough, I tdl you. She went back to tho wagon, but they did not get any farther. Tho man got sick 8onjehow,andthe woman went to tho other ranch, whero she mot Jcanno Areoy, the girl that hnd the lovo of Jim or thought she had. Well, tho expccted happoned. She told hcr troubles to Jeanne and tho girl know Bho had becn raaking lovo to a married man. Mad? Thero is no word to expresB it. She fairly raged and rodo the plains for dnys almost be aide herself. She vowed that sho would kill him nnd then was willing to forgivo for the wifo's sake, But Jim did not come then. The wife atayed and grow sick faster tban her father. At last sho med and Jeanne was free. But those whoknotv wero glad they had not the task that was before Jim when ho came home. Our bosB told us one day that tho herd would be in in a week. The ranch was prepared for the coming, and the cowboys lookcd forward to tho event with interest. for they would get a day off in which they could go over to tno Bettloment. At last the herd was within a day's drive and the wholo settlemeut was waiting for it. The boya all knew tbo aituation betweon Jim and Jeanno and wanted to aee what would happon. Jim was tired when he came into camp and did not want to talk. He ate his dinner in quiet and then said : 'Let's go over to the town." Of course we were ready, and a half dozon of ub went with him. On tho way he asked if wo had seen Jeanne. We told him nothing of tho visitor of the past few week, and only when we got to tho town did we see him look cheerful. Jim drank barder tban I had ever soen him do that afternoon, and about four o'clock was in a lively mood, ready for any sort of an escapade. Ab we rode down the little stroet wo saw coming in from the ranches a woman on horaeback. All the herders fell back. They did not want to seo what happened at too ehort a rango. Jim recognized his old flnmo and hurried forward to meet her. But sho did not hurry. Instead sho was in tho moet exasperating stato of deliberatlon. "How aro yo?" cried Jim, so that wo could all hear. There was no answer. "What'a tho matter?" ho demanded, "Don't you want to marry me?" Eor an answcr sho gave hor horse a blow with tho riding whip and came up to hia side. In hcr hand was tho raw hidc. Sho liftcd it high and before he could ece what sho was going to do it came down acroea his face ngain and acnin. Ho fairly howled with nnin, but sho rodo back to her side of tho streel nnd kept up tho highway. "I'll kill hor," shouted Jim,andaway went his horse to tho saloon whoro ho had loft his rovolvor. Ab ho stood before tho bar trylng to get tho barkeoper to givo it up sho rodo in frout of the houso. "Jim Morria," sho cried, "como out horo." How white Jim turned I but ho wont. " You cowardly sneak," she began, " I thought 1 loved you onco, but now I know you. Do you remembor thoso nights that I UBed to acaro you away from tho mavoricks ? " Jim lookcd at her in aetouialimont. Had ho beon outwitted by a woraau? " And last month I held in my arma a woman who had tliis picturo. Do you know it?" Sho held out tho miniaturo that waa in tbo possession of tho woman with the hord. Jim shuddered. "Whore whero did you got it?" " From your dond wifo's handB. Sho believed in you and I did not toll hor bettor. She dlod blossing you, and do you know whero you ought to be?" Tbo woman's oyes fairly blazed aa aho eat thero on her horso and fnced tho littlo company of herders and sa-looniets. Jim uovor said a word. Ho quailcd before tho angry woman, but ho was too angry hlmaolf to givo up. "You said a littlo whllo ago thnt you would kill mo," sho bognn onco moro. "Got on thnt horso and lot's see about It." A pony waa atanding noar by Jim'a. On it'a back tho mon placed him, won doring what would bo tho noxt movo, but hoping that tho vongoanco would flt tho crlmo. "I'll count throo," said Joauno; " then look out." " One" Jim wa8 unarmod what olao could ho do? Ho jabbcd tho spurs into tho pony and was oil llko a shot. Up tho long strcct ho wont, and had 300 feot tho start whon camo " Threel " Then wo know why tho sorrol had rounded up tho mavoricks. It rnn liko tho wlnd.

Thoy di8appearcd behind tho hilla nnd sho did not como back. Indccd sho nevor camo back to tbo Bettloment ngain, for she moved from tho trail country a fow wocks lator. But the boys wished sho would como for thoy wanted to givo hor a voto of thanks. Howovor, thoy wont out that evening and buried Jim by the aide of tho lit tle sad-facod woman who waa hia wifo.

Muridiv'H Method of Curiiifr Discases Arouslnt' the Interest ot Selentlst s. rhysicians of nll schools nre beginning to realizo that the primary cause of nearly every diseiise that nttncks the humau system is tlie failure of the kidneys to perform the duties nature assigned them. The hlood is constantly absorbing from the difTerent articles of food takeu into the stom acli, various inipurities, which, if permltted to course throughthe system, quickly render the blood unlit to carry on the process of healthy nutrition nnd ultimately result in the develop ment of disease. It is the duty of the kidneys to filtcr the blood; the slightest irregularity in the per formauce of this function is immediately mani fested in a general weakness of the body; a tondency to givo out with littlo exertion. This symptom is closely followed by otliers of much moro distressing nature which it is often cus tomary to attribute to other causes. Jolm Morrow, an eminent chemist of Spring field, Oliio, using as a basis for his work the tlieory that the kidneys are responsible for tho condiiion of our hcalth, has produced n new renieily which he liai narned Morrow's Kidno oids, the purpose of which is to act directly on the kidneys climinating nll uiinatiir.il deposits and rectifying the damago caused by their ex istcnce. Tho remarknble results obUiined by this medicine have attracted wide attontion and cstablished a new method of trcating diseaso, the efllcacy of which ennnot bo disputed. Jlorrow's Kidneoids nro prepared in yellow tnblets so small as to almost rob them of their virtue in tlie eyos of those not versed in medi cino, but so potent is their inlluence that their effects nre noticed almoU immediately. They are now on salo gencrnlly. If not to be liau of your dealer, thoy will be sent post paid on receipt of 50 cents per hox, G boxes for $2.50, by tho Herb Medicine Co , Springfleld, Ohio.
