LOVE AIID IHE BABY By MILDRED CAROLINE GOOD RIDGE. "Doctor, ho haa agreed!" "Very good. I will telephone the sheriff at once and make all the ar rangements for the test." Perhaps few morula have been In the peculiarly strained and unnatural situation of Doris Hemingway. She was of the world's obscure and hum ble, and scarcely the heroine or even understudy for the upper crust ro mance. There was, however, beyond the modest patient exterior a soul of rare worth. It shone out now In her eager, anxious eyes. The sombre looking, thoughtful phy sician who proceeded to a telephone closet and was busy there for a min ute or two, was Prof. AlpheuB Woods. He had made a name and a fortune in his profession. Now he was a fad dist. At least so standard sources designated him, for he had written three extreme books on "Heredity," leading up to the audacious claim that he could extinguish the yirnlnal in stinct In man. woman or child by a simple surgical operation, and make of the most vicious mentally warped assassin or thief an honorable, trust worthy citizen. A month previous Professor Woods had interested the criminologists and the local jail authorities by asking that they find a subject for his test. It was intimated that any professional criminal in custody who would sub i mit to the operation should receive his liberty. It was not so easy to find self-confessed criminals who would run the risk of a dangerous operation. The 4 majority claimed to be inherently in- nocent as lambs, and trusted to the lawyer rather than the surgeon to win - . their freedom. At length Professor 'Vvoods found a typical case Robert n01er, burglar, a man who freely ad- "ted that the Impulse to rob was an "tt8istible influence of his nature. Virc8 wortd had hardly mistreated "man. A keen schemer had wrest beeu 4 fortune from him through the , iery deviations of the law. In des 'ftion Tyler had set at work to get speuten with the law." He had been ijjaled to in the matter of the ' , woods' test. He had wavered, de alined, but now to the satisfaction of "Listen, Sir," Went on Doris, Earn estly. Professor Woods a pleasing faced, pleading-eyed girl had appeared at his office to announce that she had pre vailed upon Robert Tyler to undergo the operation. "I have phoned the sheriff," an nounced the professor, returning to his seat. "I have no doubt that Tyler will be placed In my charge within the hour." "Oh, sir," breathed the girl fervent ly, "do you think you can cure him?" "I have made my system a life Btudy," declared her host, with dig nity and assurance. "Listen, sir," went on Doris, earn estly, "Mr. Tyler Is not the desperate criminal the world adjudges him. He is reckless, he is tempted, but he has been plundered, crushed down, in pov erty until he believes all mankind his enemy, but I ah, yes, I know him. At heart he is a hero, a martyr!" The professor regarded the soulful eyes of this fair young pleader curi ously. There was no mistaking her sincerity. "You are his relative a sister, per haps?" he ventured. "No, sir, I am that Is, I love him!" confessed Doris. "Thief as he is, un der a long sentence, I would marry him tomorrow were he free. I, like himself, am an orphan, and like him, 1 have tasted the bitter dregs of pov erty. He risked his life to save me from a burning building. As might the highest gentleman in the land, secretly, nobly he saw that I was cared for when I was ill. He loves me! I know it, but he would refuse to let me share his disgrace, to be come the wife of a convicted thief. Oh, sir. save him!" pleaded the girl pathetically, bursting Into tears. "If you could do that, we would go away to some place where we are not known, and I would slave for him, to make him once more a man among men." "My poor child!" spoke the pror tessor brokenly, placing a trembling hand upon the bowed golden head. "for your sake 1 will eihaost all my j science in trying to save tnis man body and soul." And so the honest enthusiast had bis chance. For a week Robert Tyler lay under his care. The surgical op eration applied to the cranium, cur rent with a vigorous medicinal treat ment At the end of ten days the professor announced that the test had been completed and Tyler was a free man. The newspapers were full of the ex periment. The professor proudly hoped, and Doris prayed, and that very night the professor discovered that before he had left his home Rob ert Tyler had burglarized one of his cabinets, and had disappeared with two watcfces and a small amount of money. Gradually the incident of Robert Tyler and the professor's great cura tive eystem faded from public view. Two years later the professor received a package addressed in delicate femi nine handwriting, containing a sum of money equivalent to his losses hrxMioh thp lilirElarV. Three years after that rroiessor , Woods, in a western trip, passed Sun day at a thriving little town in the j heart of the Rocky mountains. Stroll- j ine about casually in the afternoon. . r - .- i he "came upon an open air service meeting. The preacher talked from nlntform. near which was seated a lovely, peaceful faced : lady with a child in her arms, ew dently the wife of the speaker. Such rug-red yet earnest eloquence Professor Woods had never before heard. And then he stared marvel ously as he recognized the man as Robert Tyler and the woman he had known as Doris Hemingway. His eurprise was heightened, as at the end of the meeting the speaker looked directly at him with the words: "Will Mr. Woods please remain for a few moments' conversation?" Professor Woods advanced to meet the exhorter as the audience dis persed. As he neared him he traced the old familiar lineaments of that ex pressive face, but toned down, sof tened, the eyes clear, thoughtful, sin cere. "Do you remember me?" spoke -Tyler, extending an eager hand. "I can never forget you," replied the friendly hearted professor. "My first and last experiment In anatomical ref ormation ended with you." "And cured me, sir," pronounced Robert Tyler, gravely. "Perhaps not directly, but the results, the effects materialized." "You surprise and interest me, murmured Professor Woods. "I went back to my old ways, as you know," narrated Tyler, "but it availed me nothing, for I caught a severe cold where the operation bad not healed up. I lay in hiding and misery for a year. That dear woman," and he mo tioned toward Doris, "worked for me, slaved for me through one helpless year. Then we came west, and then I saw the true light and I am a changed man." "It is a wonderful, a glorious word to report!" said Professor Woods with deep feeling. "The secret of your great transition" "Was love, such love and devotion that came as a blessing," and Tyler cast a fond glance at the smiling lit tle woman advancing towards them. "Yes. it was love love, ana "i baby!"

Mrs. Boyle had spent a busy mora ine in her kitchen. Finding that she had over four pounds of fresh dairy butter left over she placed it on a platter in the yard to solidify, the heat of the kitchen having rettucea us con sistency. Half an hour later Mrs. Boyle went into the yard to get the butter, but, like Old Mother Hubbard in the nurs ery legend, "when she got there the platter was bare." In place of the butter, however, was a large dapple gray horse, whose color a.,imo and desien suggested the now almost extinct rocking equine without which no children's nursery was at. one time complete. The noble steed was engagea in poi-i-Mnir th nlatter. But when he chanced to look up and saw Mrs. Boyle h onninA hnho cave a succession oi loud and penetrating neighs and turned tall. "Not so fast!" quoth Mrs. Boyle. A moment later a lasso improvised from the domestic clothesline encircled the neck of the dappled steed, causing him to rear on his haunches. The unwilling captive is being held as hostage by Mrs. Boyle, who de clares that she will not- turn the ani mal over to its owner until she re ceives remuneration for her stolen butter. New York Sun.

Howard is quite a spendthrift. His only living relative is an old uncle who is not; and there are oher differ ences between Howard and his un cie, says the Cleveland Tlain Dealer. However, one day not long ago our young hero more or less diffidently ap proached his avuncular relative witn the intimation that it would be a graceful thing for the old chap to loosen up. "Young man," said the uncle, "you are a spendthrift. If I had money I would not give it to you. But I have no money. You seem to think I have a treasure hidden away somewhere. Get rid of that notion. I have saved up a sum large enough to bury me de cently when I die, and that is all. Now. get out!" A friend of Howard asked him a lit tle later in the day why he looked so thoughtful. ' I was just wondering," he said, "where that old fellow got the idea that he ought to be burled decently." SAGE TEA AND SULPHUR DARKENS YOUR GRAY HAIR Look Years Younger!

"I was troubled for several years with protruding hemor rhoids. They caused pain of the most severe kind and some loss of blood. They were so inflamed that the touch of anything against them was most intense agony. I got no rest nights and ' had to have my legs and feet propped up in the bed. VI tried all kinds of advertised cures, and I was told that an opera tion was the only relief. I suffered untold agony. I saw the advertise ment of Cuticura Soap and Ointment and sent for a sample. I tried it and then procured a box of Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment. I was cured sound and well in three weeks' time. A cake of Cuticura Soap and two boxes of Cuticura Ointment accomplished what all else failed to do." (Signed) L. R. Cook, Nov. 12, 1912. Cuticura Soap and Ointment sold throughout the world.

Lame in the morning, suffering cricks in the back and sharp stabs of pain with every sudden strain, the day Is just one round of pain and trouble. It would be strange if all day back ache did not wear on the temper, but it is not only on that account that people who suffer with weak kidneys are nervous, cross and irritable. Uric acid Is poison to the nerves, and when the kidneys are not working well, this acid collects In the blood and works upon the nerves, causing headache, dizziness, languor, an in clination to worry over trifles, and a suspicious, short temper. Rheumatic pain, neuralgia, sciatica, lumbago, neuritis and gravel are fur ther steps in uric acid poisoning. Don't neglect kidney weakness. An aching back, with unnatural passages of the kidney secretions, is cause enough to suspect the kidneys. Use Doan's Kidney Pills, a remedy which has been used for years, the world over, for weak kidneys, backache, ir regular kidney action and uric acid Children Not Naturally Destructive. Tie gentle with the child who smashes his toys. The fault is not his, but yours, who provided him with toys too complicated for his immature f little mind to understand. Pottorrssa Maria Montessori. in her lecture at Carnegie hall, said little children were not naturally destructive, as most par ents had reason to suppose, but that the instinct to pull the object to pieces was the only natural thing for a child to do with something it did not understand. Most toys given to children are too complicated. Dr. Mon tessori asserted. "Instead of expecting children to amuse themselves with toys they do not understand, mothers should as sume more responsibility for their children's entertainment," she con tinued. "The mother who drives her chyl away from her side when she is woiking makes a pitiful mistake. It is Impossible to estimate the effect upon the child's mind if he were never turned away, if he could always be sure of sympathy and understand ing from the person he loves most of all."
