Whnt Doctor Pierce Ha»
Done For Humanity !
It has always seemed to me that
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., should be
placed near the top when a list of
. America's great benefactors is written.
He studied and conquered hnman dis
to a degree that lew realize.
Whenever be found a remedy that over
came disease, he at once announced
in the newspapers and told where
could be bought at a small price. He
did not follow the usual custom of
keeping the ingredients secret, so that
the rich onl; could afford to buy the
medicine, but openly printed the name
of each root and herb he used. And
to-day the names of Dr. Pierce and
his medicines are widely known, and
they stand for better health and better
One of this great physician's most
successful remedies is known as Doctor
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. These are
little, sugar-coated pills, composed of
Mayapple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap—
things that Nature grows in the ground.
These Pellets are safe because they
move the bowels gently, leaving no bad
after-effects, as so many pills do.
Very often they make a person who
takes them feel like a new man or
woman, for they cleanse the intestines
of hard, decayed and poisonons matter
that accumulates when one is costive.
If you are constipated, by all means
go to yonr druggist and get some of
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They
may prove to be the very thing yonr
system requires to make you well and

"Mr. Valentine's late." announced
Esther, as Matilda came In with her
hands full of arbutus. "Did yon see
him anywhere? Pm anxious to have
that blue gingham."
Matilda, cheeks as pink as the flow
ers she carried, laughed with all the
joy of her twenty years. "I wasn't
looking for any old tin-peddler," she
replied. "Not even if he is a traveling
department store and bringing my dear
aunt her new summer gown. I was
listening to the robins and the blessed
little spring peepers, aud hunting for
Mayflowers. Why. auntie dear, It's

Esther caught but a part of her
words. She was at the window, look
ing aftfr a great automobile that was
thundering madly down the narrow
country road, scattering hens and dust
"I should rather have a horse than
one of those destroyers," she declared.
"And surely something will happen
right now If It meets anything."
Before the machine was out of sight
It happened. Old Mr. Valentine, driv
ing his old horse and bis hex of a ped
dler's cart up the narrow road had no
chance. The horse leaped to escape
the monster bearing down upon him,
but that did not save the cart from the
blow. Freed from hanging splinters,
old Peter galloped away out of sight
and was not located for several days.
In the other direction the car raced as
madly. Its drunken occupants Intent
only on escape from what they vaguely
realized as a "smash."
Vhen Esther and Matilda reached
the wreck they found the wagon less
damaged than had seemed possible.
Old Peter hud swung It mightily, and
splinters and scratches were the worst
of its hurts. Not so with Mr. Valen-j
"It's his hip," said Aunt Esther,
stooping to examine his Injuries. "We ;

And as another and worse thought
flashed over him, "Lordy, perhaps

j A delayed schedule on the railroad
j brought Robert Rlaisdell's train into
( the station nearest the village where
his father was still confined Just three
' hours late. As he was inquiring about
a conveyance to take him to Miss
i Esther Peters' house, a pecullar-look
Ing wagon drove by. He was standing
so that he did not see It, and his men
tal state precluded his hearing any
thing so common as wagon wheels or
horse's hoofs. The station agent, who
did not like the livery man, saw It.
"What makes you hire a rig. any
way?" he suggested. "Save yonr three
dollars and ride up along If you want
to see Miss Esther. That wagon you

For Robert Blaisdell was racing up
