Many Persons Have Catarrh of Kidneys,
Or. Catarrh of Bladder and Don't Know It. I
President Newhof and War
Correspondent Richards We re
Promptly Cured By Pe-ru-na.
Mr. 0. B. Newhof, 10 Delatnare street,
Albany, K. Y., President Montefiore
Club, writes: :
"Since my advanced age I find that
I bare been frequently troubled with
urinary ailments. The bladder seemed
Irritated, and my physician said that It
was catarrh caused by a protracted
cold which would be difficult to over
come on account of my advanced years.
I took Peruna, hardly daring to believe
that I would be helped, but found to
my relief that I soon began to mend.
The Irritation gradually subsided and
. the urinary difficulties Damned avmv. 1
I have enjoyed excellent health now for
the past seven months. I enjoy my
meals, sleep soundly, and am as well
as I was twenty years ago. I give all
praise to Peruna. "-C. B. Newhof.

Prince growled. John looked up the
"There's someone coming," he said.
Jessie turned and saw Miss Maiden
approaching. She looked at her mud
dy feet, her bcdrasglod hat and her
splattered blouse and Bkirt.
"I'll get an awful scolding," she
said, half to herself and half to the
boy. Then lor the first time she
scrutinized John Hurt. She noted
that he was will dressed; that he
was not barefooted", like most farmer
boys, and that he was handsome and
"Do you belong to the riffraff?"
asked Jessie, lowering her voice so
that the approaching governess
should not hear her.
"Never heard of it," replied John
Burt In a puzzled smile. "What
is ltt"
"I don't know," said Jessie; "but
my papa don't allow me to associate
with the riffraff, and I forgot until
Just now to ask you if you are a riff
raff." A look of pain came to the honest
ace of the boy. Before he could
wpeak Jessie turned to meet Miss
"Why, Jessie Carden, what have
you been doing?" With a cry of dis
may the governess dropped an arm
ful of flowers and surveyed the wreck
of the sailor suit.
Jessie looked penitent Indeed as
she gazed at the muddy shoes and the
torn stocking; but contrition is a fee
ble flane in the heart of a child.
"Never mind the old clothes,
Govle," she said. "Watch me catch
a crab! I can do It just splendid!"
"Jessie, lay that pole down and
come away with me," said Miss Mai
den sternly. "How dare you play
with a strange boy! What would
your father say? Come with me at
mont of the farm. He did not know
how long bo would bo gone It might
De a year or it might be five. With
some tenderness he kissed the weep
ing orphans, and tramped down the
road in the direction of Hlngham.
Five years later the Segrecansett
dropped anchor at New Bedford. None
of the crew that went on with her re
turned, Peter Burt sold the cargo,
paid off his men, disposed of his in
terest in the ship, and on the follow
ing day walked Into the Burt farm
house. He was greeted affectionate
ly by his son Joseph, who for a year
had lived alone In the old house. A
week later the boy was Bent to school
In Boston, and Peter Burt began his
Bolitary occupancy of the ancestral
Shortly before Peter Burt's return,
Robert had married, and the old man
was delighted when the young couple
made a visit to the old farm. The
foliuwlng year John Burt was born,
and Peter Burt Journeyed to Boston
to witness the christening.
Two years later Robert Burns Burt
and his wifo were Instantly killed in
a railroad accident. The train crashed
through a bridge, it was winter, and
bitterly col. Of the fifteen passen
gers In the car occupied by Robert
Burt, but one escaped. A child, two
years old, was found warmly wrapped
in Its traveling blanket, uninjured, on
a cake of ice, a few minutes after the
car plunged beneath the water. It
was John Burt.
In the opinion of his neighbors,
Peter Burt was crazy from the hour
the news came to him. Strange
stories were whispered concerning
Captain Burt, as he was then called.
Belated travelers along the lonely
road saw lights burning through all
hours of the night. They heard the
old man talking or praying in a ioud
x i i
"ThUk you're smart, dont ye?" re
sponded the strange boy as be baited
his hook. "Crazy Burt's boy, ain't
ye? No objection to my flshln', have
There was a taunting sarcasm In
his voice, and defiance in his air,
Without waiting for reply he cast
his line Into the water.
"You can fish as long as you please
on your own side of the creek," said
John sullenly. For half an hour no
word was spoken. John caught four
bass during that time, while Jim
hooked only eel grass. Then he cast
his line across the pool, dropping it a
few feet from John s line.
John Burt's face flushed angrily,
"Keep on your own side!" be com
"I'll fish where I darn please! This
isn't your creek!" retorted Jim Blake
with a defiant grin. "If it Is, what
are you going to do about It?"
As he spoke John brought his hook
near the surface, and by a sudden
twist "snagged" Jim Blake's line.
With a Jerk he whipped the rod from
his opponent's band. Young Blake
was furious. John calmly towed the
rod across the pool, unsnarled the
lines, and threw the rod on the bank.
Obeying a boy's flrs Instinct, Jim
looked for a stone, but found none.
Then he Jumped for the log. Drop
ping his rod, John Burt also sprang
forward, and they met in the center
of the bridge.

Why the 8es Is Salt.
Why should the sea be salt, when
Uie lakes and rivers are fresh? This
Is a question that comparatively few
people stop to think about. They rec
ognize the fact, but do not take the
trouble to reason about it.
There are four salts in sea water-
sodium chlorldo (common salt), mag
nesium, potassium and calcium. These
are minerals and are washed out of
the rocks of the earth by the Btreams
and carried to the sea in a state of
The water of the sea is being con
stantly evaporated, and it comes to
the land as rain, snow, hall or sleet.
But this evaporation leaves the Bait
in the sea, and as the streams are all
the time carrying more salt there the
quantity is constantly Increasing, but
so gradually that it Is not noticed In
the water.
It has been estimated that If all the
salt were obtained out of the waters
of the sea there would be enough to
cover the continent of North America
to a depth of half a mile.
In some parts of the world the salt
used by the people Is all obtained
from sea water, but not whore there
are salt mines or salt springs, for the
quality of that obtained from them Is
much superior to that yielded by sea
onoe!" She gathered up the flowers
and took Jessie by tbe hand.
"Good-bye, Prince! Good-bye. John
Burt!" Jessie waved her hand gaily
at her fishing companion as Miss Mai
den turned into tho path leading
through the woods.
"He was real nice, and you're aw
ful good, Govle, not to scold him!"
were the words that reached John
Burt as he carried his basket of crabs
to the wagon.

Kindly Mention This Paper,
John Burt'i Boyhood.
For two hundred years the Burt
house had withstood the blasts of
winter and the withering heat of sum
mer. Time had workod upon the
rough exterior until It seemed like a
huge rectangular rock, weather-worn
and storm beaten. The small ulateau
on which it stood sloped northward
to the sea. Rugged rocks to the west
stood as a wall, frowning at the quiet
beauties of salt marsh and cedar
swamp below. To the south were
patches of meadow wrested from
wood and rock by generations of toil.
Through this fairer section a brook
wandered between banks festooned
with watercress. Old settlers knew
the locality by the name of Rocky
When Hezeklah Burt died, Peter
Burt inherited the hold homestead In
Rocky Woods. He was a young giant
with the shoulders of a Hercules. At
the age of thirty he took to wife the
fairest maiden of the surrounding
country, and to them a son was born
and christened Robert Burns Burt. A
year later the mother sickened and
died. The grief of Peter Burt was
terrible as his strength. For a year
be remained a prisoner in his house;
then returned to work, and for two
years labored with the energy cf a
demon. His second marriage followed.
He led to the altar the daughter of a
poor farmer, aud of this prosaic union
seven children were born.
ter. fifteen years of work and sor
row the patient wife folded her tired
hands, closed her weary eyes and
sank into that sleep which awakens
not to toil. If Teter Burt loved his
second wife, he never told her so. If
he loved her children, his expression
of affection took a peculiar form. He
mcde no secret of his favoritism for
Robert Burns Burt, the only child of
his first wife.
Robert was. a boy of whom any
father would be proud. At twelve he
wag sent to school in Hingham. At
nineteen he entered Harvard, gradu
ating In four years with honors. Af
ter two more years devoted to a law
course, he began practice In Boston,
and his success was Instantaneous.
For ten years after the death of his
wife, Peter Burt conducted the farm
of his forefathers. One after another
of his sons and daughters, as they
became of age, left the old home,
never to return. One night after sup
per Peter Burt Informed the remain
ing children that tie was going to sea.
He had bought an Interest In a whal
ing vessel, and wotdd sail from New
Bedford in a week. To Sarah tho
eldest of the children he gave three
hundred dollars, together with In
structions concerning the' manage-
Upon the death of Robert, Peter
Burt went to Boston and buried his
dead. With tearless eyes he saw tbe
pride of his old age lowered Into the
grave. Robert Burns Burt was a care
ful lawyer, and his will covered ever,y
contingency. It appointed his father
executor of his small estate, and In
trusted him with the care of his son.
Peter Burt placed the boy in the keep
ing of a competent nurse, and re
turned to his farm.
Save for the occasional smoke from
the chimney, there was no sign that
Peter Burt existed throughout t the
three months that followed. His son
Joseph called at the house, but was
not admitted.
At the end of this period the old
man emerged and was seen In Hing
ham. For the first time in years he
spoke to his neighbors, who noticed
that his hair was as driven snow,
ana mat nis lace shone with a
strange light. In the calm manner
of one controlled by an unalterable
conviction, he stated that he had
made his peace with God, and was in
spired by Hira. He had received the
gift of prophecy and of understand'
. wnen John Hurt was seven years
old his grandfather brought him to
the old farmhouse. With the boy
came his nurse and her husband,
William Jasper, the latter charged
with the duties of hired man. Thus
John Burt began hlB life on the farm,
When John had mastered bis let
ters and primer he was sent to school
In Hlngham, taking the regular course
for five years. Then a private tutor
came from Boston. Five days in the
week the boy studied under this
young man's direction, and made rap
id progress. With his stern old face
lighted with Joy and pride, Peter Burt
would listen to tho recitations.
Spool Building.
There Is nothing more Interesting
for an Ingenious boy or girl. Given
lot of spools and a ball of florists' wire,
so much can be done that It Is Impos
sible to give a detailed description. To
collect spools Is a much easier Job
than the old-fashioned practice of col
lecting buttons. Old buttons are
sometimes valuable In piecing out a
set, but empty spoolB are usually
thrown away. A person of enterprise
can always collect them, and the
umallest and most insignificant Is not
to be despised. A coming architect
can plan a house, and the builder of
a suspension bridge can siring his
spools securely on wire and produce a
complete and' steady structure. Strong
little taborets may be made of them,
if there is solid wood for the table
part; the spools may be used for the
legs and supports. A trash basket
may be made of them, strung one on
top of the other, with a wooden bot
tom, and lined wijth gay cretonne. The
smaller spools make pretty picture
frames, especially If painted white or
green. They may be used In a hun

collected from a dozen different
sources, and they are sure to provide

James Blake.
John Burt was fourteen year eld
when he first met James Blake. The
elder Blake had purchased the. old
Leonard farm, and so had become the
nearest neighbor of Peter Burt. There
were several children In the Blake
family, but this narrative has concern
only with James, the eldest, a boy of
Jonn Burt s age.
The two farms were separated by a
creek, which, at a place called the
Willows, widened to a pool, famed as
a Ashing and swimming place. One
June morning John was seated on a
log spanning the narrow neck of this
reacn oi water, ne naa landed a
bass, when the cracking of twigs and
the swaying of the underbrush on the
farther side of the creok attracted his
A moment later a boy emereed
from tho thicket. He surveyed John
with an expression more of contempt
than of surprise. The new comer was
a tall, well-formed lad, straight as an
arrow, quick and graceful in his
movements. He also carried a rod,
which he rested against the log; and
for a few seconds he calmly gazed at

"Hello!" answered John Burt.
"No; swimming," replied John.
