The men -who were replacing the
broken lerel gauge finally announced
their success to Bremer, and soon alter
the motors stopped buzzing. Evidently
the XJ-boat bad found a safe

some wild beast which stalks its prey

"It is unthinkable," I said to my- j
self, "that I should chance to be walled ;

under false colors, so to speak, so
II had to tell you."
Summer pulled the telephone book
ont of his hand and hugged it up to
her breast, at the same time rolling
him an accusing look out of the corner
of her dancing eye. Then she
hunched np her shoulders and laughed
"Silly," she giggled. "Don't you suppose
I kne ywou didn't know me from
Adam, nor any Elsie Turner person,
either? Why, I never even heard of
her myself!"
"What?" Lawrence Gardner's pipe
fell out of his mouth and he sat up
eagerly. "Ton were pretending, too?"
But Summer would not look at him
and only nodded with downcast eyes.
So Gardner drew from his pocket the
telegram he had received from his
father that morning and she read it
with flushing cheeks.
"What in Sam Hill's keeping yon so ;'

The telegram fluttered to the floor (
and Summer started to rise, but Gard- j
ner reached up and dragged her down j
beside him.
"Dad's a wise old bov," he said, with '
his cheek against hers; "will you mar-:

And Summer snuggled a bit, as she
murmured. "You never can tell. Larry,
dear. Something like that's liable to
happen most any day, now." ? J

Evening Chat ji
Two girls in the city were invited j:
to the Fairmont Hotel last night for j;
dinner oy two very nice young men? ,
or they -were very nice until the last
minute. Did you ever watch a girl
get ready for a dinner, a dance or a ,
party. She will go to her room about .
six-thirty, and there begins an elab- .
orate program. First comes the lay
ing out of the best clothes. Then .
comes the bath, the hair dressing, the
face attention, consisting of a regular massage
and a good powdering; and ,
Jast but not least, comes the donning ,
of those garments which my lady .
considers fit to adorn her dainty self.
This process of dressing for an even- ,
lag's entertainment; and let me say. ,
there is usually someone of the mas- ]
culine sex to be on hand to appreciate ,
these self attentions, is a process requiring
much consideration and ,
thought; but a process which well ,
repays the maid of particular dainti- ness.
Last evening two of onr city girls 1
planned Joyously for the gay dinner
at the hotel, but Just as they waited 1
for their escorts to call for them, ac- <
companied by their chaperon, a. very ]
charming young matron?Just the 1
kind young people like to have along;
a telephone message was received i
which postponed the dinner indefinite- i

The Troubles Women Have; t

By L. MAC LEAN. M. D. 3
Probably no man in America was , n
ever better qualified to successfully j 3
treat the diseases peculiar to women ; c
than Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo. N. Y. The J *
cases that come to him run into many |
thousands, giving hiia^an experience ; 1
that rarely comes to 2ny one man. Dr. ;
Pierce found that in nearly every case | J
there were certain vegetable growths . h
which rarely failed to give prompt re- j ?
iicf In those feminine disorders from j *
which so many women suffer. He . c
combined these roots and herbs into !
a temperance medicine that he called J
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, for 1
that is precisely what it was. This f
medicine is sold in both liquid and ?
tablet form by druggists everywhere. 9
Favorite Prescription is a distinct rem- s
edy for women and acts directly upon e
the organs that characterize the sex. ?
it is not necessary to take a long d
course of treatment with this stand- d
ard medicine. A weakly, sickly, back- Q
ichy. headachy, nervous, despondent s
woman, with regular or irregular pains P
?with feminine disorders that come
in youth or middle age?is pretty sure 11
to find in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre- e
scription the exact remedy that her
condition calls for, and to find it after '
a very few doses are taken. Why
women should allow themselves to J
stay sick when a very little money u
spent for this remedy will probably

ater years, and just because of pleasmt
memories, they cling to this odd.
sometimes unique furniture forever.
I heard an older woman say recenty:
"I know I don't have pretty furniture,
but we bought it when we
were young ("We" meaning herself
ind husband, long dead) and I could
iot part with it now!'' How true it
it is that furniture, like everything

jecause of lives which have been livid,
whether joyously or sadly, around
t. The chair which grandfather used,
?n never grow unlovely. The table.
however battered and brown, can
jever grow ugly because everyone of
Lhe children, now grown and gone,
at around it time without number!
And so it is with every piece of:
"urniture we buy. When it first comes
nto the house, we feel great admiraion
for it; but never again in the fobowing
years do we have the same
jpinion regarding it. However out>f
style or worn.-ft becomes at last
i worthy possession, and all that we
lave to do in order to bring back a
tost of memories is to sit with closed
yes nearby, and the years live themslves
over again before us.
