Summer after summer Dr. Caldwell is in receipt of hundreds of letters from
mothers all over the country thanking him for keeping their children in good health
these hot days. The way is simple for any mother. If the child breaks out with
sores, if it scratches itself, if it has no appetite and doesn't sleep well, if its bowels
are constipated or too loose, do not become alarmed, but try a dose at bedtime of
DR. CALDWELL’S SYRUP PEPSIN. There is no remedy so effective in the
digestive ailments of children, and so well liked by them for its pleasant taste and
non-griping, than tnis very same DR. CALDWELL’S SYRUP PEPSIN. Ask
the druggist wbo has your confidence and he will - . — _
tell you that more mothers are buying this remedy USE
today than any other. It is not to be compared DR CALDWELL’S
to the ordinary laxative, because this contains evDiaes npnoixi
tonic properties that help to build up the child; 3TKUK PEPSIN

good, nor to tablets or pills, which often gripe and are difficult to take. It is

tling herself back and watching the
seenery as it whirled behind her, a hat
less girl attracted the attention of pas
sengers on the Sap train that pulled
out of San Antonio vesterdav morn-
It was the starting of an eventful
day—a day full of more adventure than
occurs in the life of an average girl.
The first trouble came when the con
ductor asked for the little passenger’s
ticket. She admitted candidly that
| she had neither ticket nor money. The
l conductor was np against it. The train
I was several miles from the station, too
[ far to permit of putting the profitless
j passengen off.
“Where are you going!” asked the
I official.
“I’m going to see my sister,” was
I the prompt answer.
I “Where is your sister?”
I “On the railroad, somewhere.”
In the conductor’s anxious inquiries
| to ascertain the destination of his pas
senger, she said something that sound
ed like Kenedy.
Yes, That’s It.
‘‘ Do you want to go to Kenedy ? ” I
he asked.
“Yes; that’s the place,” readily
agreed the girl.
Not knowing wbat else to do, the
conductor said he wonld pay her fare '
Kehedy, and the unconcerned Fttle
bunch of femininity again fell to ob
serving the seenery.
In the meantime events were mov
ing rapidly in San Antonio. The little
brother ran to the Union hotel, where
the Sanders were stopping, and inform
ed the proprietor, A. Neal Munn, that
his sister had gone away on the choo
choo train. The girl had been placed
in Mr. Munn’s charge, and he rushel
frantically to the depot, where he
found ample proof that the boy’s story
was correct.
A telegram was rushed to th« sheriff ■
at Floresville to arrest and hold a hat
less, moneyless, ticketless girl who was j
on the Sap train.
The sheriff presented himself to the j
conductor when the train pulled in, and ■
asked about the hatless passenger. The !
conductor greeted his questioner like a
long-lost brother. He was glad to see
him—the girl would be taken off the
train boss’ hands, at least.
The pair entered the cduih hope
fully, but no trace of the girl could be
found. Sho had disappeare I as com
pletely as if swallowed by the earth.
The sheriff was disposed to doubt that
there had ever been a girl on the train, •
but dozens of passengers corroborated
the conductor’s story and a wire was
sent to the officers' at Falls City to
watch for a hatless, moneyless, ticket
less girl, who might blow in there on
an aeroplane or some other conveyance.
Trudges Up the Track.
Late in the afternoon a small figure
showed up down the track, walking
limpingly, slowly. When she drew near
it was seen that she was ha'.less. Her
face was the color of a broiled lobster,
where the pitiless sun had blistered the
tender skin. She had stuck bravely to
her task of going to see he> sister by
eluding the sheriff and walk ng fifteen
miles in the hottest part of tie day.
Little Stella didn’t object to being i
arrested. She had reached that stage 1
where she wanted someone to talc ■
charge of her. Kind ladies in the lit
tie town bathed her face aud the
swollen, blistered feet, gave her a nice
hot supper and did everything they
could to ease her suffering, mid by th
time the train for San Antonio came
through she was herself again, but for
the blistered face. She was put on the
train and sent back to San Antonio,
where her father and twin sister met
her at the depot.
Father Land Looker.
The father is W. C. Sandero, a land
prospector of Franklin, N. C., who has
been here since last Sunday. Mr. San
ders, on his journey to seek a now
home, brought his five motherless ch'l
dreu with him. Tho two oldest were
twin girls. The family had as its ulti
mate destination a town in Oklahoma,
where an older married daughter re
