Neuralgia
Pains
The shooting, tearing pains of neuralgia are caused
by excitement of the nerves. Sciatica is also a nerve
pain.
Sloan's Liniinerit, a soothing external application,
stops neuralgia pains at once, quiets the nerves, relieves
that feeling of numbness which is often a warning of
paralysis, and by its tonic effect on the nervous and
muscular tissues, gives permanent as well as immedi
ate relief.
One Application Relieved the Pain.
Mr. J. C. LEE, of uoo Ninth St., S. E., Washington, D. C., writes:—
I advised a lady who was a great sufferer from neuralgia to try Sloan's Lini

CHAPTER XVIII.
ASHED with rain, the stars,
"forgetmenots of the an
gels," blinked 1 Id I
from the sky of violet blue.
The moonlight flooded the country,
percolated in soft, refulgent cascades
through the spruces and hemlocks and
traced with its witchery weird ara
besques in the glades.
Ou the road that ribboned through
the forest and up from the lake walked
ISmnin Brooks aud her sister ^5eth. the
latter grumbling.
"You are the queerest girl." she com
plained. "No one but you would think
of coining out ill such weather—not a
soul. My shoes are so heavy with mud
I can hardly lift my feet."
"Oh, I just had to! 1 love It," re
plied Emma. "I simply could uot stay
indoors. I know now what a bird
must feci like when it is caged. You
must humor, me. little sister. I have
been born again—awakehed to a new
life. My soul, snatched from the swlrl
tire of sordidness, of sorrow, of base
ness. that seared it, must expand or
burst. My life for so long was de
pressed in the fog. like that we came
up through today to emerge at last
into the brightness of the mountaiu
tops. It Is hard to realize that 1 have
left .'ill tills behind and am free in the
light."
"You certainly have had a hard time
of it with that beast," admitted Beth,
stopping to take breath.
"Listen!" went ou Emma. "Don't
you love that chorus of the frogs and
the grasshoppers? 1 think there is
something weirdly exquisite in these
noises of the night that we do not
hear In the city, that I have not heard
for ages and ages. Oh, I wish the
woods here were full of the old world
nightingales that the poets say 'feed
the heart of the night with fire, satiate
the hungry dark with melody.' don't
you? And don't you love this Incense
of the soaked earth and its verdure?
It lifts me to the clouds there that
drift like silver snow past the moon."
She laughed aloud in her light heart
edness. and the joyous peal went
echoing through the wood.
Lor'. Einma. how you talk!" said
Beth, marveling at her sister's exalta
tion, which she did not understand.
They trudged on and upward in si
lence through the mud, past cheerful
lights that glowed through windows
of bungalows and cottages among the
trees, until they came to a miniature
dwelling ensconced in a bower of
laurels.
At the door stood Mrs. Harris. She
was displeased.
For goodness* sake! Where have
you been?" she exclaimed as the girls
entered. "I began to think you had
fallen into the lake or off a rock or
that some other dreadful thing had
happened to you and was scared to
death."
Emma." said Beth, dropping into a
chair, "is impossible. She Insisted on
walking right to the lake, though the
have been bom iuahi—awulieiiol to a
new life."
roads were awful and ankle dc»p In
mud so sticky that I thought I'd have
to leave my rubbers In It. Don't for
get, too, that's all uphill coming back.'
"Oh, I never enjoyed a walk so in
my life!" declared Emma. "It was
magnificent! I couldn't have slept,
couldn't have stayed In bed. If I hadn't
taken it."
But Mrs. Harris refused to be mol
lified.
"And I won't be able to Bleep be
cause you've made me so nervous."
she complained.
Emma went to her. put her arm
about Iter and kissed her.
"Don't be cross, mother." she plead
ed. "You know this is iny first sniff
of real country for a century, and I
liave nevei"*been in the Catskllls
be
fore and therefore never so near heav
en. I am a little girl again, as full ol
childish joy as I jised to be when fa
ther took us oil those trips which now
seem like dream, tliey were so long
ago."
"If your father hadn't been so 'easy'
we'd be owning a Handsome cottage
at one of the fashionable places in the
Adlrondacks instead of hiring a mean
little bungalow here," lamented Mrs.
Harris. "No fashionable people ever
come Ui-'rc» ami oue Uft8 to lie so partlc-
T.
ular. But what Is one to do? One
can't remain In New York in the dog
days!"
"For me, I'm sick and tired of the
mountains," announced Beth. "I'd like
to go to Newport, where we'd stand a
chance of meeting somebody and
where anyhow we'd lie able to see real
society people."
"Bother society!" said Emma hap
pily.
Both her mother and Beth looked
shocked.
"Emma, how can you say such a
thing?" reproved Mrs. Harris, envel
oping herself in an air of loftiness.
"I hope you have not allowed your
self to be influenced by the anarchistic
vaporings of your—of that unspeakable
person whose t»ime is not to be men
tioned."
"I've read somewhere that fine soci
ety is only a self protection against the
vulgarities of the street and the tav
ern." chirped Beth primly.
"That all depends on how you define
'tine society," Beth," said Emma.
"I mean the society of wealth, the
Four Hundred, of course. I pray every
night that I may marry a duke or a
count."
"Beth has such elevated ideas!" com
mented her mother admiringly.
"Such petitions," observed Emma,
becoming grave, "never reach the
mercy seat. It is said that at mid
night every New Year's eve, when the
bells of the churches ring out the
dying year, there Issue from the bel
fries streams of vapory spirits with
distracted, terrified faces, their ban^s
clapped to their ears. They are the
prayers that never rose any higher,
prayers of worshipers in the churches
who repeated them mechanically, as
they are accustomed to do every Sun
day. without realization of the signifi
cance of the words they utter prayers
muttered by those whose thoughts
were on other things prayers of the
hypocrite prayers of the humbug
supplications to, the most high for the
preposterous and the Impossible pray
ers of those who do not practice what
they preach prayers of those who do
those- things which they ought not to
do" and leave undone those things
which they ought to do and think
their weekly glib confession of it and
their obolus in the collection plate ab
solve them. With the jangling and
clanging of the bells they are borne by
the winds oVor mountain and sea and
are-lost forever In the eternal void
between the worlds. Art such prayers
wherever uttered must share this
fate."
By this time Mrs. Harris was agape,
too astonished to utter a word.
"Graclout Emma!" gasped Beth.
"You talk like a book. I don't ktlow
what's come over you."
"It is new birth. I told you it
was as though I had been horn again.
I hope you will marry a duke or a
count if you want to, Beth. As a rule,
I believe they are real men, every
whit as worthy as good men who don't
bear this distinction of title. Still, the
field is necessarily restricted, and you
mustn't forget that there are other
noble men as distinguished from no
blemen—men of sterling value, who
ring true under every test."
"Like—like Jimsy," ventured Beth
with a dubious air, casting about and
on the spur of the moment thinking
of none other she knew who would fit
the description.
"Like .Tlrasy," assented Emma em
phatically.
"But lie's so ungramraatlcal, so—er—
shy ou education, besides which he
hasn't any money," objected Mrs. Har
ris.
"None to speak of," seconded Beth,
pursing her lips deprecatingly.
"Aside from that, though," conceded
Mrs. Harris, "1 must say Jlmsy's a
real good man and most obliging. He
can't help his upbringing."
"How about Captain Williams?"
questioned Emma. "How would you
class liimV"
"My dear," answered her mother,
"you- woulun't put him iu the same
class with Jimsy—1 mean socially
He's so rich! I wouldn't be surprised
if he were several times a millionaire
lleinember, he has' two automobiles
And the handsome way he treated you!
Why. he crossed out the $10,000 that
abomination stole as though.lt were
matter of cents."
"A man's true wealth is the good he
does in thi» world, mother, according
to Mohammed."
"That is now it may have appeared
to that fo. jign prophet in the yeai
1." retorted Mrs. Harris with a tone
of finality, "but in this age of horse
sense in the United States a niillion
dollars in the bank is the real standarc
of wealth. With money you can dc
everything. If you have plenty of il
you can do plenty of good, and,every
body else /ill sit on the fence and
clap, but If you haven't any you are
no good to yourself, can do no good tc
|otln'is. and everybody else will get
down from the fence to kick you."
Left to his own devices, Brooks tool
a survey of the position In -which hi
I found himself, and his conclusion wai
not without gratification to him. Tht
clean "bill of health" she had been thi
means of ol calnlng for hlra from Cap
talu Willlan. had In fact left nt his tre*
|disposal ns IiIh own property seven
(hundred do. ars from Ills stealings nrl
from his lr "plunge" on the horsea
which bed been a winning one. Thei
mere was the furniture. The plann
was supposed to be Emma's, and he
felt sure she would send for it, but
lie had no Intention of surrendering It.
Not one stick, not one penny, would
she ever get out of him after the way
In which she had treated him. The
very day after her departure he sold
the instrument to the piano house
from which it had been purchased.
Within three days he had removed
from the hotel where they had lived
in state for such a brief period anA
transferred such furniture as he re
quired to one room in a bachelor apart
ment house. The rest he disposed of
for cash. He was a bachelor agaiu to
all Intents and purposes, and he re
solved to enjoy his liberty to the full.
He had had enough of married life,
with its cares and the discipline of re
straint It imposed. Once more .lie was
"one of the boys." To make his posi
tion unmistakable and discourage any
disposition on his wife's part to return
to him he forwarded, care of her
mother, her portrait, that had been
conspicuous ou the parlor mantel,
ifter. jnUluc It from .till-' glided frame
In which it had stord. On i'ic 1.
of it he wrote a verse of an id song:
My wife she ran away from me
Some two or three weeks n,,n.
And now she wants to come back again,
But I tell her it's no go.
"Once bit twice shy," is my reply.
And If It was to rain
Cats and dogs and mussels and fioss
I'd never have her back again.
There was no word of explanation
beyond this Insulting doggerel, aud he
was careful not to give his address.
He chuckled as he put it in the ielter
box. At times he was a little uneasy
lest she should seek to discover his
whereabouts for the purpose of mak
ing a claim for support, but as the
weeks wore on and nothing was heard
from her be became reassured?"
He had bad little difficulty In pro
curing work, thanks to Captain Wil
liams' note accepting his resignation,
and soon was established as assistant
to the receiving teller In a bank with
a salary of $25 a week. With this and
the money already In his possession
he deemed himself rich, and his fitful
optimism obtained the ascendency once
more in Its usual extravagant form.
But his escape from arrest-had been a
lesson that had sunk in deeply. He
vowed never again under any circum
stances to "borrow" from the funds
he handled in the course of his duties.
He eschewed horse racing also, know
ing that If the bank officials became
aware that he was gambling he would
lose his place that very Instant.
After awhile his fellow employees
noticed that Brooks, the spry, genial
Brooks, wh6 had won the good will of
everybody, as he had in the general
office of the Latin-American Steam
ship company, manifested a tendency
toward moroseness that his face at
times assumed an expression of mel
ancholy. Despite his love of self, he
was of those natures which do not
thrive in solitude.
He never had cared much for the
companionship of meu. His Inclina
tion always had beeu toward that of
the opposite sex. Accustomed also as
he. had been for so long to the conso
lations of home life, to the thoughtful,
affectionate ministrations and bright
presence of Emma, he was bound
sooner or later to miss- her.
"There's nothing in this living alone."
The avowal came one night after he
had sient an evening at the theater
with two sociable fellow clerks and
he gazed arouud his silent, cheerless
bedroom. Although he had not at any
time loved Emma with that ineffable
passion which is the golden ladder
upon which the soul mounts to heaven,
yet she had filled a larger place iu his
heart than he had ever had auy com
plete idea of prior to her absence. His
sentiment, fostered by his selfishness,
revived wlih violence under his Intro
spection. He yearned for Emma's
smile of greeting and the kiss that ac
companied it at his homecoming, for
the numberless sweet attentions she
had lavished upon him.
How pretty she was, how gentle!
How sweetly she had put up with his
ill humor! She was different from any
of the girls and women he had ever
been acquainted with. He was sorry
he had sent the photograph, not alone
because he felt that he h%d made
gratuitously a false move, but becausc
he wished he had kept it for himself.
There was not one personal object re
maining that had belonged to her. The
little ornaments she had liked, her
clothes, the trinkets she had left be
hind, he had disposed of in his haste
to get rid of everything that could re
call her or to which she might lay
claim.
He wondered If she, too, was sorry
for their separation. She must be.
How could she live under the eternal
nagging and fault finding of her moth
ir aud the lording proclivities of Beth
and not long to return to the inde
pendence of her own home?
She had loved him. His memory
evoked the distant vision of her frail,
lithe form clinging to him as she gazed
up into his eyes, her own aglow with
the glory of her adoration and its de
lirious intensity. He felt the blissful
pulsations of her heart throbbing
against him, Its paean of passion
he heard, too, in fancy the red lips
murmur her soul's ecstasy in words of
flame and beauty, felt the thrill that
shivered through hlin as his fingers
threaded caressingly the shi:nmering
cloud of her tresses. That was long
ago in their early possession of each
other, when she had awakened to
knowledge of herself and had wor
shiped him as a god, fountalnheaa of
Joy and light for her on earth.
This transcendent passion had not
found In him the responsiveness It
craved and which alone cou'.d nourish
It. Emma had been an enigma to him
often, a riddle that had bored him at
times. His blunted senses, sharpened
by desire of her, perceived that stu
pidly, ignorantly, he had disdained a
treasure beyond price.
But, remembering what he had been
to her and that she was still his wife,
he believed that a reconciliation could
be brought about. Sentiment and de
sire took counsel with advisability
selfishness weighed the pros and cons.
In the end sentiment and desire, being
the stronger, adjusted objections to
their own point of view. But even
then it was some time before he could
summon up courage enough to take
any steps iu the matter.
Summer had given place to Intet
and returned again since Emma had
left him. In all that time he had uot
heard from or of her. He had made no
attempt to see Jimsy Smith or any of
his former friends and associates.
Now he bent his thoughts upon how
best to effect the rapprochement.
Should he write Euuna, expressing
his contrition and begging her forgive
ness? Ilis pride stiffened at this prop
osition Should he write and request
an interview with her? If he could see
her he believed he would have little
trouble in persuading her. But, coun
seled by her hateful mother, who al
ways had despised him, she might re
fuse to see him. Perhaps the best way
would be to approach her through
some one else. The only person he
knew of who by auy possibility could
act as Intermediary was Jimsy Smith,
the general utility man.
Requisitioning Jlmsy's services did
came the degree of favor to which he
restored him. It had been bad policy
not to keep in touch with Jimsy, a se
rious mistake. Smith, however, was
such an "easy," obliging, warm heart
fellow that there would be no dif
ficulty in squaring things with him
and getting him to act as go-between.
He resolved to call on Jimsy.

DISAGREE OK SIGNS
Some Prophets Predict Mild Sea
son—Others See Severe Cold.
General Belief In Pennsylvania County
Is That There Will Be Hard Win
ter After Middle of January,
to Continue Into March.
Reading, Pa.—Berks county weath
er prophets are busy making their
predicitions for the coming winter,
and while none of them agree, the
general belief is that there will be a
severe winter after the middle of Jan
uary and that it will continue until
late in March.
If observations made of insects can
be taken as an indication of the
weather conditions this winter, mild
ness will prevail. Some farmers
have observed in plowing that the
worms and bettles are lying close to
the surface and that the toad has not
gone deep.
Another evidence of mild weather
is the lateness of some snakes in de
positing their eggs. Recently farmers
In plowing have dug up a number of
eggs, and, upon breaking them open
small live snakes squirmed out.
One of the Berks prophets says that
the winter will be a mild one because
there were quite a few' cold days in
early autumn. That the winter will
not be a sevcere one is the prediction
of John Musser, a Brecknock town
ship farmer, Berks county's new
goosebone prophet. He Is the succes
sor of the late Ellas Hartz, whose an
nual winter forecasts from the goose
bone made him famous.
Musser says "The goosebone is
marked very peculiarly this year. In
stead of having dark marks joined to
gether there is a dark spot indicated
here and there. This indicates that
the winter will be an open one, with
a severe spell now and then.
"January, or the early part of It,
will see an occasional snowfall. But
there will be a warm spell about the
15th and another in the latter part of
the month.
February will be a severe month,
according to the markings, and there
will be several blizzards and plenty of
ice and snow.
"March will be opened with mild
weather, but it will be bitter cold the
latter part of the month."
Anthony Ruppert, aged 85, of Bas
ket, a regular Hoyle on snakea, de
clares that the woods and fields are
full of young snakes, which indicates
that the winter will not be a hard
one.
Local weather prophets contend that
weeds have grown to an unusual
height and that this indicates a severe
winter and lots of snow, since nature
caused the weeds to grow tall, so that
birds can feed upon the seeds when
the ground is covered with snow.
Squirrels began carrying their supply
of winter grain and nuts into their
nests earlier than usual this year, and
some farmers declare that this indi
cates cold weather and a long winter.
Several other farmers said that
muskrats began building early that
corn husks are thick, with the stalks
leaning to the west that geese, ducks
and chickens are growing a thick
down under their feathers and a bony
substance on their feet that toad
stools on old logs have many wrin
kles that owls retired to the forest
a month earlier than usual, which all
Indicates that the winter will be a
short but a severe one.
Meanwhile the guessing goes mer
rily on and the exact result will not
be known until April 1, 1910.
CURIOUS CODICIL TO A WILL
Englishman Leaves Son, Recently
Married, Fortune If Boy Born of
Union Attains 3 Years.
London.—A curious condition was
contained in a codicil to the will of
Aid. Woollan, former mayor of Tun
bridge Wells, who left properly worth
tver $1,000,000. By the terms of the
will the alderman left $1,000,000 to his
wife for her lifetime, after which the.
property passed to his son Ernest ab
solutely. In the codicil made a fort
night before his death Woollan stated
that as his son had married recently
he therefore left him only a life in
terest In the money unless a male
child which attained the age of three
years should be born of the union and
be certified by two physicians of good
standing as to its reasonably sound
mind and body. In this case the tes

LARGE GAINS IN LAKE TRADE
Commerce During November Nearly
Two Million Tons Greater
Than a Year Ago.
Washington.—The volume of com
merce on the great lakes during the
month of November was nearly 2,000,
000 tons greater than for the corre
sponding month last year, and more
than 1,000,000 tons in excess of that
for November, 1907, according to fig
ures of the department of commerce
and labor.
All items showed an increase in
volume, excepting lumber, with ore
shipments leading the increase.
The total tonnage for the month of
November during the three years are:
1909 9,962,811
1908 8,134,404
1907 8,951,851
The total for the season to the end
of November Is given as 79,040,047,
with 59,333,823 and 82,365,841 net tons
reported for the corresponding periods
of 1908 and 1907. The total for the
past season shows a loss of nearly
3,000,000 tons from 1907. November
soft coal shipments differed little
from preceding Novembers. Shipments
of hard coal were considerably less
for the month than during previous
years, the decrease coming principal
ly from Buffalo and*Erie.
Wheat shipments were 14,576,000
for the month or nearly 3,000,000 bush
els greater than last year, practically
all from Duiuth-Superlor. Corn ship
ments, mostly from Chicago, were in
creased. Lumber shipments remained
about stationary.
Boats to the number of 6,800 depart
ed on the great lakes during Novem
ber, 1909, compared with 6,337 during
November, 1908. The tonnage regis
ter of the boats was nearly 2,000,000
greater than November of last year,
and for the entire season about 24
per cent, greater than the season of
1908.
