My body and face were covered with sores. One day it would seem to be better, and then break out again with the most terrible pain and itching. I have been sick several times, but never In my life did I experience such awful suffering as with this eczema. I had made up my mind that death was near at hand, and I longed for that time when I would be at rest. I had tried many different doctors and medi cines without success, and my mother brought me the Cuticura Remedies, in sisting that I try them. I began to feel better after the first bath with Cuticura Soap, and one application of Cuticura Ointment. "I continued with the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, and have taken four bottles of Cuticura Resolv ent, and consider myself well. This was nine years ago and I have had no return of the trouble since. Any person having any doubt arbout this wonderful cure by the Cuticura Reme dies can write to my address.

"Is he absolutely sure of that, my dear?" "Perfectly." "Well, then, darling, please do this for me at once.

WEIL (Copyright, by J. B. Lippincott Co.) SYNOPSIS. The story opens with a scene at a box party. Miss Henrietta Winstantley, sis ter of Bishop Winstanley overheard Banker Ankony propose to Barbara Hem ingray, whose brother Dan was in his employ. Dan was one of the town's pop ular young: men. He showed some nerv ousness when Attorney Tom Twining told him Barbara refused Ankony. Ankony the following day, summoning Twining, accused Dan of looting the bank. Twin ing refused to prosecute. Barbara per suaded Ankony to postpone starting prosecution. Twining learned of the en gagement of Ankony and Barbara. He congratulated both. He visited Miss Hemingray and found her almost in tears. He told her he had loved her, but feared prematurely announcing his af fection. By actions alone she told him she reciprocated. Mrs. Anson Dines, wealthy widow', proposed a marriage by proxy with Bishop Winstanley. The lat ter consulted with Twining. The bishop had been paying attentions to Miss Streeter. Dan consulted Twining, say ing his sister was determined to marry Ankony, declaring she actually loved the banker, though he could not help believ ing she was making a sacrifice to save him from jail. Miss Winstanley, find ing a pressed rose in the bishop's book, scented a love affair. Mrs. Dines saiTed for America. Miss Winstanley informed Twining that Mrs. Dines was intent upon stopping the marriage of Barbara and Ankony. Mrs. Dines arrived and Ankony immediately set about to sail with Bar bara for Europe the following day, in or der, it seemed, to avoid Mrs. Dines. Mrs. Dines confronted Ankony with evidence of his peculations while attorney for the late Mr. Dines. She told him that if lie persisted in marrying Barbara that day that she would prosecute him. Finally he agreed to her proposition that he should givo up Barbara as the price of Mrs. Dines' silence. Ankony notified Barbara of the necessity for breaking the engage ment. Dan was informed also. CHAPTER XI.—Continued. "Everything's all right at last, Tom," he cried. "I don't deserve it, hut I'm down on my knees giving thanks for it, just the same, and if ever—" he lowered his voice, looking over my shoulder at some one who was ap proaching—"if ever I get any of you into such a muss again, may I be hanged! Oh, it's been awful! You'll never know. But it's over, thank God! And now it's up to me to make good. And that's what I'm going to do, old man. Who is this confounded fellow coming? 1 wanted to talk with you a minute, but 1'U look in after dinner, if you're to be at home. There's a deal to tell you," and he was off. An ecclesiastical-looking gentleman mounted the steps with me, inquiring for the bishop, while I went in to Miss Winstanley. She was flushed and smiling and bright-eyed. "Did you think I had forgotten you? Bless you, no. But there has been so much to do. We only left Barbara, poor child, an hour ago. There were messages to be sent for her, orders to countermand, and—" "Then she Isn't going with him?" I broke in. "Oh, did you think—is It possible you gave her credit for so little—" "If she loved him—" She caught me up sharply, course she didn't love him. I always told you that, but you would go on in your stubborn unbelief in my intui tions, you foolish, foolish fellow. My, but she was gallant, though! She had me almost bewildered at first; but the moment she found that she could have done with all pretense and that her fancied obligation to Ankony was at an end, then how she changed! It was pitiful to see her. One under stood the terrific strain she has been under. I'm not pretending to say whether or not she cares for you, Mr. Twining—that's for you to find out for yourself, you know—but I think it is only fair to tell you that she never has cared for Ankony." "Thank God!" I devoutly murmured. She patted my arm and made funny little dabs at her eyes with a dot of a handkerchief. "She is going out of town to stay with some friends until the storm of the broken engagement has blown over, she told me. They go to-mor row, she and Dan. He will stay with her a fortnight, until she is a little re covered, for in spite of her wonderful courage and poise, she is tremendous ly undone by all this." "And is there nothing—" "Nothing just yet," she smiled. "Now let me tell you what Dan and I are going to do. You remember that I have some undeveloped mining prop erty in Montana. Experts have given me a good deal of encouragement over it, but I have been waiting to find just the right man to put at the head of the work. And now Dan is to under take it. Oh"—at my glance—"it isn't a philanthropic scheme, will give me excellent service. If it Is a good thing for him, it's a better thing for me. And I'm to go out with him to launch the enterprise.

"Good!" I approved; "and if things don't go well with me I'll come along. May I?" "I CHAPTER XII. Barbara was away several weeks, and then one day Mrs. Dines, meeting me on the street, told me that she had come back to town and that she was well and entirely recovered from the effects of the unfortunate publicity of her broken engagement. I went to see her that evening. It was just after dinner, and the maid told me that Miss Hemingray was go ing out, but that she would ask if she would see me for a few minutes. As we stood talking, Barbara came down the stairs. She wore a rather scrumptious gown of white—one from her trousseau. I imagine, and the hope went over me that it might yet fulfill the purpose for which it had been de signed. Her cloak was white too—a velvety thing that l had not seen be fore. It became her wonderfully, with its bewitching folds and curves and richness. And her brown head, lifting itself with all its charming poise above the new loveliness, thrilled me while the eyes that looked down on me were more like the eyes of the Barbara I loved than they had been for a very long time. "Oh, you!" she exclaimed, from the landing where she paused an instant at sight of me. "Going out?" I asked, lightly, as if I were not dazzled and palpitant. "To a very small affair at the Averills'. Why not come along?" "Because I'm not asked. But you will give me a minute before you go?" I pleaded. She glanced at the hall clock. "Yes, I think so. Hord Averill is coming for me, but it isn't time for him yet." "Annie," said I to the maid, "if Mr. Averill arrives, show him into the drawing-room and let him wait." "You are very urgent," Barbara said, with a rather uncertain smile. I held open the library door and she entered. She did not sit. but stood half turning to me, leaning against the corner of the table near the fire place, where a low fire burned. 1 had never seen her half so lovely, nor so adorable. "We have abused our friendship and treated it shamefully." I said at once, "and now perhaps I am about to maroon it; but I must take the chance. Forgive me if I have come too soon, 1 "I I lie he for he my ap be old a a to and I in My, had but that was It say Mr. for is of stay of with re and that prop over just of isn't Is with I've when a m a ifife IMS /1 ■ //) - E FMI II rR ) ) mfà l-l !

"Do you know all that has hap pened?" she asked, white as her gown, and her eyes only half lifted to mine. "Yes, Barbara. Don't mind, dear. Part of it 1 guessed and tYie other part had to be told me. But 1 am glad that there is nothing for you to tell nothing but the one thing I am so eager to hear. Yon won't keep me ''•aiting any longer, will you?" "After all that has happened you still want me for—your—" "More than ever; a thousand times more than ever!" 1 cried.

She turned her face from me, leaning heavily on the table, the soft firelight over her. "Could you ever be sure of me? I have deceived you so long." "You must deceive neither yourself nor me now," 1 said, seriously, want the truth, whatever that is. Be honest. Don't try to be kind to me. You have had to make pretense so long. Think only of yourself now." I waited for her reply, but it was tong in coming, so long that my heart sank. "If l am to be honest," she began, "I must tell you that—that—" "Yes? Don't be afraid, dear." "That it would be foolish—foolish for me to—to try to—to care for you, "I for 1—" "Don't try to go on." I cried. "I see. 1 have been a fool to expect it " A little sound of pain escaped her. I pulled myself together with an effort. "You mustn't worry,'' I said, dully. "I can't, blame you, heaven knows! I wouldn't have you come to me unless you love me. you know that. And I would rather go on—alone—than have you give yourself to me through pity." "Oh, yes, yes!" she cried. I stared into the fire. 1 had thonght I was prepared! Presently she began to speak again; "Won't you let me finish, please? I—■ I want you to understand. It would be foolish lor me to—to try to care for you, because—because—" "Oh, don't try to ease it for me!" I broke in. "1 must learn to bear it. Forgive me for being so long getting myself In hand. You're not to blame yourself, dear. You never gave me any reason to hope, but 1 did. 1 told myself that 1 didn't, but 1 did—even when I thought Ankony was going to carry you off the next day, I still hoped. It seemed to me that heaven meant you should belong to me, and that I must, have you. But there, there! don't look at me like that, and don't—" "I am going to finish," she said, resolutely. "Let me go on." "I wish you wouldn't," I urged. She sat down, bending to the fire. I could not see her eyes, but I knew they were misty, and the softness of her voice was indescribable. "I couldn't try to care for you be cause—because I have been—have been fighting for months—to—to quit caring. Oh, why—why will you be so dense?" "Barbara!" I cried, bending over her. She put up a futile little hand be tween us, hut I laughed in the rap ture of the moment and caught her in my arms. "Wait," she pleaded. "My waiting is over!" I breathed. "Oh. look at me, dear one. and let me have the testimony of your ('yes. I'm afraid of your lips." "Foolish!" whispered she, lifting her eyes to mine. And Uten: "But oh, you are—Tom. Tom! you are crushing my beautiful new gown, and it—it did cost such a pile," with a lit tle breathless laugh. "There will be plenty of other gowns," i exclaimed, "but never an other moment quite like this." The fire did its best to be up to the situation; it crackled in a sudden noisy glee and threw enchanting shad ows over Barbara's head as I look»! down on it. Dan's rheumatic olif spaniel, who haunted the library, awoke from his nap in the corner at the moment and, coining to stretch himself on the hearth-rug, observed something unusual going on, and. look ing up inquiringly, brushed against Barbara's skirts to attract her atten tion. The maid's light steps passed down the hail and I heard the outer door open and a man's voice in the vesti bule. "It's Averill," I said. "I shan t so much mind having to give you up to Hint now." But he did not seem to enter into the moment with her. "Oh, it has been so hard," she whis pered, a little half sob breaking the sweetness of her voice. "There were times when I thought I should never, never he able to stand it," and I felt her shiver in my arras. "I know, my brave one," I whi# pered back; "I know." She lifted her head a moment later and looked at me, and my heart bowed beneath the shining of her eyes and the tremulous beauty of her dear face. "But it doesn't matter now. Noth ing matters now," she said, thrillingly. (THE END.) as on Wireless X wires, ami about the same time he published a book. In 1895 Admiral Popoff of the Rus sian navy and Capt.

Based on the census of 1900, it Is estimated by the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tu berculosis that nearly 100,000 children now in school will die of tuberculosis before they are 18 years of age, or that about 6,400 die annually from this disease. Estimating that on an average each child who dies of tuber culosis has had six years of schooling, the aggregate loss to the country In wasted education each year amounts to $1,152,000. According to investiga tions made in New York, Boston and Stockholm, the percentage of children who are afflicted with tuberculosis is much larger than the death rate would Indicate. a To Check Ravages of Tuberculosis. The National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis declares that there are two ways of checking the ravages of tuberculosis among school children. The first, way Is to instruct every school child about the dangers of the disease and to show them how they themselves may prevent tuberculosis in their homes. The second method is to establish open air schools for all children who have tuberculosis or who are suspect ed cases, segregating them from the healthy children.
