TEE CAUSE 07 EEETJMATISM.
It is claimed that rheumatism is
sometimes inherited but it is more like
ly that the persons presumed to inherit
it are physicaly constituted the same as
thoir parents and naturaly susceptible
to it. If children are diilerently con
stituted from the afflicted parent they
do not "inherit it." Biliousness is ns
much of an inheritance as rheumatism,
persons of a bilious temperament
are most susceptible to it and they of
course get their temperament from their
parents. Other authorities claims that
rheumatism is caused by the presence of
uric acid in the blood. Others to
taking cold when their is poison circu
lating in the blood, others that it is
purely and solely a disease of the ner
vous system. It is well known that
when persons have acute or inflamma
tory rheumatism the bowels are usualy
constipated and the urine scanty, but is
that not caused by the rheumatism
rather than the cause of it, for when
the bowels are kept open and the in
flammation kept down, a cure is soon
produced. The inflammation must be
kept down until the parts are restored
to a healthy condition. This is not
theory as a great many severe cases
have been cured in that way. The in
flammation being deep seated sod
mostly in the joints, it is difficult to
reach and butfew external applications
will relieve it, there is one however
that will, and that is Chamberlain's
Pain Balm, one application is usual;
sufficient to relieve the pain and only
the worst cases require more than one
or two fifty cent bottles to effect a cure.
It is the most penetrating liniment
known and promptly relieves the ago
nizing pains both of rheumatism and
neuralgia. When the parts can be reach
ed and the Pain Balm applied directly to
the seat of pain, aa in cases of burns

THE SEXTON'S STORY.
For the Fbkb Pass.
CONCLUDED FBOM LAST WICK.
The train was beginning to move off aa
we reached tne depot, but tue uoiouei
sprang aboard, and mindful of my promise
to Miss Jean, I followed hint. He never
glanced around, but taking a seat, bowd
his head upon his hands. W ran on for
some time; passing several unimportant
stations, when, all at once, there wns a
shrill whistle, the train oama to a stop, and
every ons was putting their heads oat of
the windows to see what was the matter.
The eondnetor came through, saying tha
train Just ahead of ns hod been wreoked,
and all of the male passengers hurried to
the scene of the accident Th train had
fallen through a bridge and many of the
coaches were piled npon eaoh other, all
broken and splintered in the greatest con
fusion. The people of the neighborhood
were doing all they could to clear the
wreck and assist those who were still alive.
Many dead were laid out side by side, while
the groans and shrieks of the wounded and
dying, were fearful and heart-rending.
I don't know whether the Colonol knew
I was following him or not; be expressed
no surprise at seeing me. Side by side we
looked among the dead and dying nntil we
came upon the object of our search. Both
were dead; the man crushed and mangled
almost beyond recognition, the woman's fair
face untouched in its marble beauty; ft
great beam lying across her breast telling
how she met her death. As the Colonel
stood over them with clinched hands, dis
torted face, and eyes blazing with maniacal
fury, I raised my heart in gratitude to Ood,
that he had been spared tho awful deed it
had been his purpose to commit. I touched
him npon the shoulder.
"What shall be done, Colonel?"
He stared at me vacantly for a moment,
while he removed his hat and passed his
hand over bis brow, where the great drops
of cold perspiration were standing. His
atih lips moved and I heard him mutter:
Take this cursed Jezebel and bnry her,
for she is the daughter of a king."
He turned to me after a moment. 'There
nnder that tree, John. The train is going
to run back to the city for medical as
sistance and to carry all of the wonnded
that can be moved. I will return and leave
it with you."
Procuring the assistance of a laborer, I
proceeded with my ghastly task.
It was dark when I reached the city
again, and i went noinewom wun a terrible
foreboding of evil. Martha, my wife, met
me at ths door, weeping and wringing her
"Oh, John, T thought yon wonld never,
never cornel Such a terrible thing has
happened. The Colonel came home crazed
with drink, and when little Lillian climbed
npon his knee you know he was so fond
of ber he hurled her from him with an
oath. As she fell, her bead struck the
sharp corner of ths mantel, and the doctor
says she can only live a short tims,"
"Oh Miss Jean!"
I hurried up to Lillian's little room where
she lay upon ber snowy bed with closed
eves and panting breath. On one aids
I knelt Miss Jean, with one of Lillian's little
dimpled hands clwrped in both of hers,
while on ths other, knelt ths poor Colonel,
with a stony look of horror and aognish up-1
on his face. Near was th family physician, '
I think It was In Ood 'a mercy that it was
Miss Joan was to have ben married ths
usst day to Mr. Charles Conyers, as staunch
a young fellow as ever trod the earth, la

then tamed away with a tearless sob. vPt
them all away, Martha," she said to my
wife, with quivering lips. "I will never,
ever need them now."
Mr. Charles pleaded in vain,' ''No, it can
not be," she said gently, "I lovs yon too
well to let yos burden yourself with my
misfortunes. I shall bencoforth dsvots
niyielf to my brother."
"But I wonld share yonr troubles Jean,
and your brother shall be my tsudsrest

in the world for me Jean." And though
she fried to pursnaded herself to the ooutrary
sU had too much of a woman's heart in her
bosom, not to feel in a measure happy and
comforted at the assurance.
Then came the crash of the firm. Ores-

few music scholars, and took np the burden
of life as best she could, It was very heavy
for her slender strength though, and
she grew thinner and paler day by day,
people bogsn to remember there was con
sumption in ths family, and to whisper
that she was going like her mother. Mr.
Charles came to me pale and troubled.
"Don't you see bow thin and pnle Jean is
growing, John?" said he, with a tbrob in
his strong voioe; "I feel that she is drift
ing from me day by day, while I am power
less to keep her."
Don't the good book say something abont
the Captain of our salvation being made
perfect throngh suffering, Miss? Well
some how that thought will get into my
head whenever I think of Miss Jean. But
her cup of sorrow was not full yet, for one
dreary day last autumn, they carried Mr,

been run over and killed while iu a drunk,

Martha to bake ns a huge wedding cake,
and be sure you eat a goodly slice John.
Please Ood we will try and briug book the
roses to her cheeks, and the old glad light

After the failure of the firm, I procured
the position as attendant of the grounds
here, more for the purpose of looking after
the Colonel, than anything else. Every day
he comes and sits by little Lillian's grave,
murmuring to himself about the Jjlies and
the angels; and every day he says to me,
with such a wistful sigh, that he is wait
ing and listening for the song of the angels
to call him away to Join his little girl in th
garden of lilies.
Ah, there come Miss Jean and Mr.
Charles now. Miss. You may be vary sure
he is never far from her side."
Fro-n the opposite direction, came a gen,
tleman, and with him a lady in deep
mourning; observing them, the poor Colonel
rose and ran to meet them with the gle of
"Perfect throngb suffering!" Yes, it was
toncbingly exprossed by the pure, spiritual
face, with its patient month, deep blue eyes
and low white brow, shaded with waving,
golden auburn hair. And Mr. Charles, was
he handwme? . Well not after the outward
form, perhaps, but there was the beauty of
a trne, tender soul shining from the clear
depths of bis durk gray eyes, and written
in every line of the grnv, quiet fnce.
Thanking the man softly, I clasped little
Pearlie's band, and stole silently away, feel
ing purer and better, from having listened
to the story of the saintly Jean and her
loyal lover. Lizzie 8. Lbavbxl.

everybody was happy and yet there
was a perceptible under-current of
regret, for Wbittier was eighty years
of age. Alas, "the years of our life
are threescore years and ten. The
spacious dining room was filled with
a merry throng of people, many flow

Puntanio fashion, stood at the head
of the table and cut the fruit cake.
And now here comes Whittier him
