that in gout ( also true in rheumatism ) there iB deficient elimination on the part of the kidneys and the poisons within are not thrown off. Prof. 11. Strauss attributes a gouty attack to the heaping up of poisons where there is an abundance of uric acid which is precipitated in the joints and sheaths, setting up inflammation. Before the attack of gout or rheu matism there is sometimes headache, or what is thought to be neuralgia, or rheumatic conditions, such as lumbago, pain in the back of the neck, or sciatica. As Prof. Strauss says, " The excretion of uric acid we are able to effect by exciting diuresis.” Drink copiously ol water, six or eight glasses per dav, hot water before meals, and obtain Anuric tablets, double strength, for 60 cts., at the nearest drug store and take them three times a day.

KENSON. Synopsis.—Lieut. Mark Wallace, tJ. S. A., Is wounded at the battle of Santiago. While wandering alone in the Jungle he comes across a dead man in a hut outside of which a little girl Is playing. When he is rescued he takes the girl to the hospital and announces his intention of adopting her. His comirr.Ldiaz officer, Major Howard, tell him that the dead man was Hampton, a traitor, who sold department secrets to an International gang In Washington and was detected by himself and Kellerman, an officer in the same office. Howard pleads to be allowed to send the child home to his wife and they agree that she shall never know her father’s shame. Several years later Wallace visits Eleanor at a young ladles’ hoarding school. She gives hltn a pleasant shock by declaring that when she is eighteen 6he intends to marry him. More years pass and Wallace remains In the West. At the outbreak of the European war Colonel Howard calls Wallace to a staff post in Washing ton. He finds Eleanor there, also Kellerman, la whom he discerns an antagonist. For years a strange man has haunted Eleanor’s footsteps, following but never accosting hei. One night Wallace sees the man and follows him to a gambling house kept by a Mrs. Kenson. Here the strange man is attacked by Kellerman. Wallace rescues him and takes him to his own apartment. In the night the man, who gave his name as Hartley, disappears. The next day Wallace Is called from his office and on his return finds important documents missing. His resignation is requested. CHAPTER Vlll—Continued. “Ah. now I recognize you," said the strange voice In a merry ripple of laughter. “And you don’t know who I am?” “If you will state your name—" be gan Mark patiently. “Someone who knows that you are In trouble and wants to help you. I’m afraid you won’t let me. You seemed to be prejudiced against me when we met before. Well, lam Ada Kenson.” Mark uttered an angry exclamation, which he instantly checked. This might prove the key that he was seek ing. “Come to my house at nine o’clock tonight, unless you are afraid. You will meet nobody but me.” , It had been In Mark’s mind to look for Hartley in that neighborhood. “What do you say, Captain Wal lace? I can help you verv much in deed, and perhaps put things right for you. I am in a position to know a good deal of what is happening behind the scenes.” Mark felt his brain grow as cool as Ice. ‘Til coine, Mrs. Kenson,” he an swered crisply, and hung up the re ceiver. He consoled himself with the reflec tion that he had, at least, nothing to lose. He waited calmly for the ap pointment, and arrived outside the house promptly. There was no sign of Hartley In the neighborhood. At his ring Mrs. Kenson herself opened the door, smiled, and showed him into a well-furnished little parlor. “Sit down. Captain Wallace,” she said. Indicating a chair. “You’ll wonder who I am and why I asked you to come here,” said Mrs. Kensou. “Well, I happen to know quite a good deal about you, Captain Wallace. All your history, in fact, from the time you entered West Point. It Is part of my business to know these things.” Mark bowed and waited, expecting something sensational. He was aston ished beyond his expectation, however, by Mrs. Kenson’s next words. “Your long and distasteful stay In the West. Captain Wallace, was not wholly the fortune of the military 7 I -, Represent the International Peaee Committee.” service,” she said. "It was expedient that you should stay there, oa account of your unfortunate mistake in adopt ing the late Charles Hampton’s child.” Mark rose in protest, collected him self. and sat down again. “In fact, dear Captain Wallace, you have IH-eu the victim of circum- THE WAUWATOSA NEWS stances,” went on Mrs. Kenson. “1 suppose you know that the world has changed a good deal during your fif teen years of exile? Well, this war, for example. It’s a shocking rever sion to barbarism, the nations flying at each other’s throats, when their dif ficulties could have been adjusted by a little frank diplomacy. It was a great blow to the financial interests that are working to reconcile the nations and to develop the world’s resources. They would do all possible to end it. lam working for them here. I am not tell ing yon any secret. Captain Wallace, because everybody In Washington knows it. • I represent the Interna tional peace committee, and I have quite a good deal of Influence among the senators and representatives— principally the Western ones, Cap tain.” The frankness and audacity of the disclosure astounded Mark. So this was one center of “they,” ns Colonel Howard had called the nucleus of Teu tonic spies and agents in America. “We are trying our hardest to pre vent America from being dragged Into this maelstrom," continued Mrs. Ken son. “You, Captain Wallace, were un fortunate enough to he working on the other side. And —I’jn sorry, but a little trap was laid for you and Kellerman. Yon walked right into It. Major Kel lerman, who Is a very good friend of mine, acted In complete good faith. Don’t blame him. Don’t blame your self. Don’t blame that wretched fel low who came here the other night to blackmail me. It was Inevitable. You see, when yon adopted Hampton’s daughter you unconsciously put a sort of noose about your neck. There was the possibility of your coming Into con tact with Hampton’s friends. The sys tem Is widespread, you know, and quite twenty years old- So —you had to go west. “Now, Captain Wallace, I’m a frank woman, and Til put my proposition to yon. You don’t want to see Major Kellerman walk off with that pretty ward of yours, do you? And yon can't marry her without a little money. Well, you could be very useful to us in many ways. Would you, without sacrificing your patriotism or revealing any secrets, become a salaried worker of our organization?” Mark stood up, trembling. “I—don’t quite understand.” he said huskily; and the picture of Eleanor In Kcllcr inan’s arms at the dance swam before his “What is It you want me to do?” “Use your Influence nnd array knowl edge in oar behalf. That little affair of today will soon be forgotten. And we’ll help you to put Kellerman out of business.” “You ask me to become a German spy?” "Don’t be absurd, my dear captain. Who ever suggested such a thing?” “That’s what It amounts to.” “A little influence on behalf of hu manity.” "No!” shouted Mark, quite beside himself, “’'cu’re infamous. You ought to be put t ‘of the country !'* He strode Indignantly. toward the door. The electric light in the passage had gone out. The room grew dark behind him. He groped his way toward the door. Suddenly a vivid light flashed before his eyes. He h ?ard, though be felt no pain, the impact of a hard weapon upon the back ot his head. He flung out his hands and grappled with a man. In the uplifted hand he felt a heavy stick with a knobbed handle. He believed his assailant to be Kel lerman, and, half unconscious as he was, he fought madly. But the man, Kellerman or not, was more than a match for him. For a few moments they wrestled furiously; thee the other got his arm free and brought down the stick upon Mark’s head again. And this time the light faded Into black re**, (Copyright, by W. G. Chapman.) CHAPTER IX. "Captain Wallace! Get op! Can you 6tand? Come with me!” Mark opened his eyes and groaned. It was pitch dark, and he could see nothing, but he knew the voice for Hartley's. “Where am I?” he muttered, trying to rise and slnkiDg back again. "In the Kenson house. Be quick! There! Listen!” Outside there was the confused mur mur of voices, above which came the sound of a crisp command. Then some Implement fell heavily against the door of the house, splintering it. Again the cries broke out. “Try again!” muttered Hartley In desperation. “There’s a door Into the empty house next door, through the cellar. The police don’t know of it. You must get away. You must get away!” Mark tried again, and this time man aged to rise. Hartley caught Mark by the arm and guided his unsteady footsteps to the door. They gained the passage, and Hartley guided Mark toward the head of the basement steps, which they reached just as the front door fell in under the hatchets of the raiders. They scuttled down the stairs as the hall became filled with the shouting po licemen. Before the first of the raiders set his foot upon the stone stairs Hartley had found a door In the darkness, opened It, and pushed Mark through, following Immediately. He shut the door softly behind him. They were In the base ment of the adjoining house. “We’re safe now,” said Hartley In a whisper. “You’d better rest, Captain Wallace.” "You’re Hartley,” muttered Mark, sitting down and trying in vain to dis cern something of the other’s face through the gloom. "What happened, and how did you come on the scene?" “Good God forgive me!” moaned Hartley, suddenly breaking Into hys terical subbing, as on the former night “I’ve ruined you. Captain Wallace. What else could I do?” "So you were In that plot, eh?” asked Mark, wondering that he felt so little anger.’ “Well, It was clear enough, but It doesn’t matter now.” “It matters everything," answered Hartley, In a vehement whisper. “They tricked me into it. I didn’t know what their scheme was when I agreed to get you out of the room. But I found out later. And I had suspected. God, Cap tain Wallace, to think I found that door 1” “Never mind," said Mark soothingly, listening to the stamping of the raiders In the next bouse overhead. “What more do you know?” “I knew that they wouldn't be satis fied with that. sir. The7 —" “One moment Who is *they,’ Hart ley?” “ "rhey,’ ” repeated nartiey vin dictively. “Those devils that make pawns of men. They meant to clinch their dirty work one way or another. They meant to buy you, after ruining you, and fashion yon to their dirty work. If they couldn’t do that they were going to —” “Murder me?” "No, sir. Discredit you so that noth ing you could say would be listened to. "That’s what they meant to do. It was I who was told to give the Up to the police that there was gambling here. They thought the place was closed —and it was. But they wanted the police to find you here, and arrest you, so that the story might get Into the newspapers, and finish you—finish you with the war department, and with Miss Howard." “And what did you expect to get out of it. Hartley?" asked Mark. He heard the ram catch at his breath. “She wasn’t your wife, Hartley?” “No, Captain Wal.nce, no!” “But she ha-i a hold oa yon strong enough to compel you to do sueh work ns she requires. And yet you have tried to save mo dishonor--If any more could come to me." “Yon saved me, Captain Wallace I” Mark made a sonnd of Incredulity. “And I have been a gentleman. You don’t know bow a man falls, Captain Wallace." "Hartley, yon haven’t answered my question. Now here’s another. Why were yon watching Colonel Howard’s house the other night?" “You know that?" “I followed you here. Tell me the whole truth about this .business, and I’ll stand by you to the end.” “I’ll trust you—to the limit—but I won’t tell you. Captain Wallace. Some day, perhaps, but not now. I’ll stand fey you, and I’ll fight at your side, sir. But I won’t tell you. And that’s the only condition on which I can agree to what you propose." “Aad if we succeed — V “Not *if,’ but ‘when’,” cried Hartley, with a sudden outburst of conviction. •Til tell you then—yes. Captain Wal lace. And till then we’ll fight together to pull down tbls nest of conspiracy and prove your 'nnocence to the world." After a moment he added, “I think we’d better he making a move out of here, Captain Wallace!" He pushed open the cellar door and led Mark along the basement passage until a gleam of moonlight appeared In front of them. They emerged into a little garden, a replica of the one next door. There was no policeman on guard. In a moment they were in the street and in safety. Mark, who had already recovered from the effects of his blow, save for a splitting headache, took a car with Hartley, and half an hour later tlio two were again in Mark’s rooms. “So you were packing?” asked Hart ley, looking about him. “What were you going to do?" “I don’t know," answered Mark. “It’s queer, being broken like Oils—l’ve nothing, no prospects, only a little money. I have to earn a living." “It’ll be the army,” said Hartley. “You’d be a sergeant In no time; you’d run through the ranks in about a couple of years. And then you’ve won. You’ve conquered fortune.

The uan seemed under the stress of some overpowering emotion. “And how about your own part in this ai?a , '\ Hartley r The man winced as If Mark lad struck him. Mark put out hts hand, took Hartley’s, and shook it warmly, “You’re right. Hartley,” he said quietly. “I’m ready to sink my name, then, and we’ll go" In together as com rades, and by Heaven we’ll set the whole crooked business right!" CHAPTER X. i "Weston I Hey, there!” Mark, who was sitting at the en trance of the tent which he shared with five other privates of the Medlea: corps, looked up at the sound of the name to which he had grown accus tomed. At the sight of the corporal who hod hailed him, he flung down the grooved strip of metal, known as the “soldier’s friend,” with the aid of which he had been polishing his but tons, and hurried obedl**oly forward. “The train's In from the base with the sisters and doctors to meet the convoy that we're expecting from ths front.
