ClfK-ford'.s face became expression
less like wood, his body rigid; then
i he jtood up and faced the. three
I men acro?.s the table.
"Quite .to'." he paid in his vacuous
Knslish voice. "Marshall wrote a
.1 by iindvf rt'er.co and changed it.
Ho borrowed my penknife to eraso
the figure."
My father and lewis praped like
men who see a penned-in beaft slip
out through an Unlmasined pafage.
There wa.s silence. Then suddenly,
in the .-trained fJllncs.ss of the room,
old Doctor Gaeki laughed. Oosford
lifted his lomj pink face, with Its
cropped hearl bringing out the ugly
ir: o u t b .
"Why ib) you laurh, my good
man?" ho ,aid.
"I laugh." rplied Oaeki, "becau
a ti'ure Ö can have so many colors. "
And now my father and Iowis
were no less astonished than Mr.
G oxford.
"Colors!" they said. for tho
changed llgure In tho will was black.'
''Why. yes," replied the old man.
"it i.s very pretty."
He reached acro.v tho table and
drew over Mr. Oiosford'.s memoran
dum beido the will.
"You are prozrc.vlve, sir." he
went on; "you writ In iron-nutgall
ink. just mad', commercially. In
this year of 'fifty-six by Mr. Ste
phens. Hut we write here as Mr-
hh.iil wrote in 'fifty-four, with loff-
wood."
He turned and fumbled in his lit
tle caii of bottles.
"I carry a bit of acid for my peo
ple's indigestions. It ha.s other
u.-e." Hci whipped out the stopper
of his vial and dabbed Cosford's
n;te.s and Marshall". siraature.
"S "1" he i riel. "l'our, writing
is J.Pae. Mr. Gosfor.'. and Marshall's
red!"
With an oat a the trapped man
struck at GaekP.s hand. The vial
ftl! anI cracked on the table. The
hydrochloric acid spread out over
Mar-fuali's will. And under the
chemicil roa;,'r.t the fiairt !n th
beqnt of fifty thousand dollars
charged beautifully; the bar of the
." turned blue, and the remainder of
j :
it a deep purple-red like the body
of the will.
"Gaeki," cried my father, "you
have trapped a rogue!"
"And I have lo.-t a measure cf
good acid," replied the old man.
And he began to gather up the bits
of his broken bottle from the
table.

Never ask a man "why" he loves
you because, by the time he has
found his reason, he will undoubted
ly have lot his enthusiasm.
One of the things that gives a
witty woman pause is that quizzical,
defiant look in a man's eye. when he
suspects that she has the laugh on
him.

They Called Him
An "Old Pill"
THAT was years ago when he
packed a terrible grouch, a
mighty irritable stomach and a
liver that refused to do the things
that all good livers should. No
wonder his friends called him an
old pill" and stayed away.
But that was years ago long
before he discovered Beecham'a
Pills and learned that two at bed
time can bring sunshine into a
man's life. Today, he's an opti
mist, a hero to his wife, and a
staunch believer in Beechara's
Pills.
The cheer that Beecham's Pills
bring into a man's disposition, is
the incomparable cheer of sound
digestion, active liver, and the
regular habits thct make good
I health.
