The Meeting.
TJnder the sun, under the starry
nights Tremont, with his burden, jour
neyed toward the north. The halts
were distasteful to him, and although
he was forced to rest he would rather
have been cursed with sleeplessness
and have journeyed on and on. He
rode his camel like a Bedouin; he grew
brown like the Bedouins and under the
hot breezes, swaying on his desert
ship, he sank into dreamy, moody and
melancholy reveries, like the wander
ing men of the Sahara, and felt him
self part of the desolation, as they
"What will be, will be!" Hammet
Abou said to him a hundred times, and
Tremont wondered: "Will Charles live
to see Algiers?"
Sabron journeyed in a litter carried
between six mules, and they traveled
slowly, slowly. Tremont rode by the
sick man's side day after day. Not
once did the soldier for any length of
time regain his reason. He would pass
from coma to delirium, and many
times Tremont thought he had ceased
to breathe. Slender, emaciated under
his covers, Sabron lay like the image
of a soldier in wax—a wounded man
carried as a votive offering to the
altars of desert warfare.
At night as he lay in his bed In his
tent, Tremont and Hammet Abou
cooled his temples with water from
the earthen bottles, where the sweet
ooze stood out humid and refreshing
on the damp clay. They gave him acid
and cooling drinks, and now and then
Sabron would smile on Tremont, call
ing him "petit frere," and Tremont
heard the words with moisture in his
eyes, remembering what he had said
to the Marquise d'Escllgnac about be
ing Sabron's brother. Once or twice
the soldier murmured a woman's
name, but Tremont could not catch it,
and once he said to the duke:
"Sing! Sing!"
The Frenchman obeyed docilely.

i j snatches of song he could remember,
j "La Fille de Madame Angot," "11 Tro

-1 ern opera, "La Veuve Joyeuse." But
the lines creased in Sabron's forehead
indicated that the singer had not yet
, found the music which haunted the
memory of the sick man.
"Sing!" he would repeat, fixing his
hollow eyes on his companion, and
Tremont complied faithfully. Finally,
his own thoughts going back to early
days, he hummed tunes that he and a
1 certain little girl had sung at their
games in the alleea of an old chateau
i in the valley of the Indre.
"Sonnez les matines

way, alone, in a traveling tent, at the

but his life had been an inconsequent

1 j By Sabron's bed he hummed his
' little insignificant tunes, and his heart
longed for the woman. When once or
■ | twice on the return journey they had
been threatened by the engulfing sand
; storm he had prayed not to die before
'! he could again clasp her in his arms.
' Sweet, tantalizing, exquisite with
the passion of young love, there came
to him the memories of the moonlight
' nights on the terrace of the old cha
teau. He saw her in the pretty girl

her bare young arms, and smelled the
■ fragrance of her hair as he kissed
her. So humming his soothing melo

1 softened by his memories, he soothed
;; Sabron.
Sabron closed his eyes, the creases
In his forehead disappeared as though
I brushed away by a tender hand. Per
' haps the sleep was due to the fact
1 that, unconsciously, Tremont slipped
into humming a tune which Miss Red
mond had sung in the Villa des Bou
-1 gainvilleas, and of whose English
' words De Tremont was quite ignorant.
1 "Will he last until Algiers, Hammet
Abou ?"
"What will be will be, monsieur!"
| Abou replied.
"He must," De Tremont answered
, fiercely. "He shall."
He became serious and meditative
, on those silent days, and his blue
eyes, where the very whites were
burned, began to wear the far-away,
i mysterious look of the traveler across
long distances. During the last sand
t storm he stood, with the camels, round
Sabron's litter, a human shade and
shield, and when the storm ceased he

: Tells Rheumatism Sufferers to Take
Salts and Get Rid of
Uric Acid
Rheumatism is no respecter of age,
' sex, color or rank. If not the most
I dangerous of human afflictions it is
I one of the most painful. Those subject
; to rheumatism should eat less meat,
i dress as warmly as possible, avoid any
undue exposure and, above all, drink
' lots of pure water.
j Rheumatism is caused by uric acid
| which generated in the bowels and
i absorbW into .the blood. It is the func
' tion of the kidneys to filter this acid
I from the blood and east it out in the
I urine; the pores of the skin are also
a means of freeing the blood of this
, impurity. In damp and chilly, cold
| weather the skin pores ore dosed thus
forcing the kidneys to do double work,
they become weak and sluggish and fail
to eliminate this uric acid which keeps
accumulating and circulating through
the system, eventually settling in the
joints and muscles causing stiffness,
soreness and pain called rheumatism.
At the first twinge of rheumatism get
from any pharmacy about four ounces
of Jad Salts; put a tablespoonful in a
[ glass of water and drink before break
i fast each morning for a week. This
is said to eliminate uric acid by stimu
lating the kidneys to normal action,
thus ridding the blood of these impur
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and is made from the acid of grai*es
and lemon juice, combined with lithia
ami is used with excellent results by
thousands of folks who are subject to
rheumatism. Here you have a pleasant,
effervescent litkia-water drink which
overcomes uric acid an<r is beneficiul to
your kidneys as well.—Adv.

One sundown, as they traveled Into <

could not endure another day of the j

out and pulled up his camel short
He waved him arm.
"A caravan, monsieur." j
In the distance they saw the tents,
like lotus leaves, scattered on the pink
Bands, and the dark shadows of the
Arabs and the couchant beasts, and
the glow of the encampment fire.
"An encampment, monsieur!"
Tremont sighed. He drew the cur- I
tain of the litter and looked in upon ;
Sabron, who was sleeping. His set

Tremont cried to him: "Sabron,
mon vieux Charles, reveille-toi! We
are in sight of human beings!"
But Sabron gave no sign that he
beard or cared.
Throughout the journey across the
desert, Pitchoune had ridden at his
will and according to his taste, some
times journeying for the entire day
perched upon Tremont's camel. He
sat like a little figurehead or a mas
cot, with ears pointed northward and |
his keen nose sniffing the desert air. !
Sometimes he would take the same
position on one of the mules that car
ried Sabron's litter, at his master's
feet. There he would lie hour after
hour, wifti his soft eyes fixed with
understanding sympathy upon Sab

j licked his master's hand.
"Charles!" Tremont cried, and lift- !

j recognized him. "Are we home?" he
i asked weakly. "Is it France?"

Food Fashions
Fashions in foods change with sea
sons just as styles in clothes Jo and
it is quite as uncomfortable to use too
heavy foods in spring time as to wear
clothing that is too warm.
This month everyone experiences a
natural craving for green vegetables.
Tomatoes, lettuce, green onions, rad
ishes, rhubarb, cucumbers and the rest
of the attractive list whet the jaded
appetite for a keener relish of other
They do even more than this for they
save doctor's bills by helping Nature in
her scheme of domestic economy.
There is not much food value to suc
culent vegetables for about eighty per
cent, of their bulk consists of water and
pulp: it is their characteristic taste
that makes them so enjoyable.
The point to remember in cooking
them is that the flavor that gives them
character must be preserved. To do
this you must not cook them too long
nor over-season them. It is a common
fault to sec cauliflower, spinach and
similar early vegetables smothered in
thick cream sauces or made very rich
in other ways. There is justification
for the cook who does this, for she has
often been told that succulent vege
tables need to be enriched to be nour
ishing. But they do not need this in
springtime. This month we eat greens
for the sake of the iron they are rich
in, while lettuce, celery, cress and green
onions are sedatives and rest and quiet
our nerves.
Later in the year tomatoes will be
used most iu cooked dishes but now in

Easy to Make and Costs Little
If you have catarrh don't be misled
or gulled into believing you can obtain
a cure for vour trouble by breathing a
simple medicated air.
Catarrh is a constitutional disease
and inhalers, sprays and nose douches
merely temporize with the disease aud
seldom, it' ever, bring any lasting bene
fit. To effect a cure use a remedy that
will drive the disease out of your sys
tem. Don't employ a remedy that will
drive the disease down into your lungs
and bronchial tubes. Such methods
often lead to consumption, and fre
quently produce catarrhal deafness and
head noises.
If you have catarrh in any form go
to your druggist and get one ounce of
Parmint (Double Strength), take this
home and add to it >4 pint of hot water
anil 4 ounces of granulated sugar; stir
until dissolved. Take a tablcspoonful
four times a day.
The first dose should begin to relieve
the most miserable headache, dullness,
sneezing, sore throat, running of the
nose, catarrhal discharges, head noises
and other loathsome symptoms that al
ways accompany this disgusting disease.
Loss of smell, defective hearing and
mucus dropping in the back of the
throat are other symptoms that show
the presence of catarrh and which may
be overcome by the use of this simple
treatment. Every person who has ca
tarrh should give this prescription a
| trial. There is nothing better.—Adv.
