There are gains for all our losses Oh. the gladness, oh, the sadaem
And a lose for every gain; That combines the mighty wbola.
There are crowns for all our eroase The excessive joy and madness
And a oy for every paiL Of the unfedged human soul
Songs and laughter, moans and sighltg, Oh the losses and the crosses,
Heartaches, bitterness and fears Hours of pleasure, years of paln,
Fill the days forever fying .As each frail bark onward tosses.
Onward with the passing years. O'er ilfe's tempest-ridden main I
Every soul its share of sorrow Every Joy has sorrow in it,
Is by fate destinid to bear; Every laugh is half a sigh;
We who laugh today tomorrow But let storms rage every minute,
May be stricken with despair. There'll be sunshine by and by.
There are gains, and there are losses, By and by there'll be no crosses;
Days of peace and days of strife, By and by there'll be no pain,
And a ctown for all our crosses And for all our bitter losses
At the joutaey's end of life. There will be eternal gain.

in sheer dismay. "You idiot!"

and fascinating, but what she loves is
your bank account, my boy. I knew
it would be so when your Aunt Jennie
left you a cool hundred thousand. But
boys will be boys. Only, for good
ness sake, wait a year or two before
you saddle yourself with a wife."
"I am 21, sir," (with an immense
air of dignity).
"And I am 641 Now, Frank, do
hear reason. Lucia Frothingham is a
fascinating woman, touching the thir
ties, if not already over the line-a
finished flirt and as mercenary as she
is pretty. I know her, and I tell you
her affection is centred upon your
Aunt Jennie's legacy and the half mil

"Uncle Coleman," cried his neph
ew,hotly. "I never thought of it,much
less spoke of it."
"I don't suppose you ever did.
Having always had an independent in

on a dead man's shoes. But Miss

ten years. She was in society before

"It may keep me in Hartford a

Coleman Burke looked with a pity
ing affection at his young relative

he had reached "man's estate."
"A month that may settle your
whole fortune," he said. "Remember

"You are actually engaged?"
"Certainlyl I bought a diamond

on her taper finger last evening."
"Hem! Well, the fool-killer hasn't
been here lately, that's certain. There,
be off and let me finish my paper in
peace. You will go to Hartford?"
But after his nephew left him,Cole
man Burke let his paper lie idly upon
his lap, while he fell into a fit of mus
ing, often interrupted by impatient
ejaculations. He was a man, as he
had said, past 60, and he had been a
childless widower for 30 years, while
four little graves beside that of his
wife recorded the heart history of his
When he had lived lonely and a sin
oere mourner for many long years,his
brother and wife died, leaving Frank,
a curly-headed boy, to the care of his
Uncle Coleman. All the long-sealed
fountains of love in the desolated
heart' opened to pour out their affec
tion upon the child. He was truly
the very sunlight of the old man's ex
istence, and though his manner had
been cynical,his hear ad been sorely
wrung by the announcement of his en
gagement, but not from any paltry
jealousy or mercenary motive. Had
Frank loved a true, tender woman,
were she a beggar, his uncle would
have given her a father's love and wel
come. But by the light of his own
brief married happiness he read the
misery in store for his nephew if he
married Lucia Frothingham,a flirt, ex
travagant and selfish. How to savre
him was costing the old man torturing
thought. Active opposition would
only strengthen what was now but a
boyish infatuation, and yet saved he
must be. Suddenly a light broke over
Coleman Buike's face, and he rose
from his chair and went to a long mir
ror in the room. The reflection was
not calculated to waken vanity,yet the
old man smiled, well pleased.
"If I can only carry it out,it will be
proof positive," he thought.
Short, fat, nearly bald, with spee
taoles and a cane, Coleman Burke was
certainly a strong contrast to the tall,
handsome fellow who had won Lnucia
for his promised bride, yet he said
"Fll out him eat "
A week laterall the fashionables at
the 0- hotel, fSrtga, hknew
that Qoleman Burke wasintending to

bridegroom in perspective. Every
body (that was anybody) knew that
Coleman Burke had retired from busi
ness years before, worth half a million
of money, and had made fortunate in
vestments since. That he was decked
in fashion's latest styles, wore dia
mond studs and ring, carried a switch
cane, drove a fine team and occupied
expensive rooms at the hotel,all could
see for themselves.
Very soon after he came, another
fact was patent to all observers-that
he was very attentive to Miss Lucia
Frothingham, the belle of many sea
Mrs. Frothingham hoped in her
heart that Lucia would not be a fool
and would remember how far Mr.
Coleman Burke's pocketbook out
weighed his nephew's; also that an
old man's darling was far more apt to
have every whim gratified than a
young man's slave. Having delivered
this maternal lecture, the widow di
lated upon the expenses of the Sara
toga trip and was rather marked in
her emphasis upon a speedy subjuga
tion of the elderly adorer.
And Miss Lucia shrugged her fair,
sloping shoulders, threw over them a
cloud of black lace and descended to
the porch, where Mr. Burke waited to
escort her for a drive. His manner of
wooing was certainly more business
like than sentimental. Where Frank
had grown eloquent over the beauty
of the liquid dark eyes,. his uncle di
lated upon the suitability of diamonds
for brunette beauty. Where Frank
tenderly quoted poetry descriptive of
the slender grace of the willowy fig
ure, his uncle thought velvet was the
most becoming wear for slight fig
As they drove,the fat old gentleman
asking her opinion of his horses, also
obtained her description of the most
suitable carriage for a lady's exclusive
use. Likewise he expressed a con
tempt for an India shawl folded upon
a seat near the lake as one far below
the quality he would purchase to deck
a lady's shoulders.
Sometimes, indeed, as Lucia in
formed her affectionate parent, "he
was a little spooney,pressing her hand
and rolling up his pale blue eyes over
the rims of his spectacles, like a fat
But, as a rule, he was simply de
voted in his constant attentions. A
bouquet of rare flowers in the morn
ing, followed by a call; a drive in the
afternoon,a walk in the evening or an
offer of escort duty at a ball became
the usual daily routine. But the el
derly wooer was an energetic and per
sistent one, and even Lucia, vain of
her conquest, was bewildered by the
rapidity of the courting. Only a fort
night ago she hal but a bowing ac
quaintance with Mr. Burke, and now
he had positively offered a parure of
expensive cameos for her acceptance.
"A letter from Frank! Coming to
day!" mused Mr. Coleman Burke,
reading an epistle handed in at his
door. "Surprised to find me away
from home. Hopes I have seen his
dear Lucia in a kinder light than the
one I had previously had. Hem-yes
And so Mr. Burke mused and mut
tered as he donned his most exquisite
suit, his most dazzling necktie and
fastened a bouquet in his buttonhole.
"Bless my soul, Uncle Coleman,
what a swell you are!"
And then Frank was in the room,
and the two exchanged cordial greet
"And Lucia?" Frank questioned;
"is she well?"
"She was perfectly well last evening
when I took her for a drive."
"Certainly. You do not suppose I
have failed in attention to my future
niece, do you?"
"You are are always kind!" was the
"You like her better than you did?"
continued Frank, almost pleadingly.
"See here, Frank," the old man
said, suddenly wheeling round from
the glass to face his nephew. "I have
a bargain to make with you. If,within
one hour, I prove- Lucia false, mer
cenary and a traitor to her promise to
you, will you give her up? Stop! It
she is true, loving and faithful,Iwith

her the love I always hoped to give
"But how can you find out?" said
the young man, astonished at his
uncle's energetic proposal.
"It is you who are to find out. I
am a!ready satisfied. You are to go
to the centre window of the small
drawing room on the porch and listen
to the conversation I am to have by

Just a little later Miss Prot,,

sailed into the east drawing loom to
greet her elderly admirer. With an
air of deepest devotion he Jraised her
hand to his lips and greeted' her with
a flowery compliment.
"I presame," he said, in a lowten

"But I shall not!"
The blinds parted as Frank spoke,
revealing his white face and anger
lighted eyes. Miss Frothingham
screamed, and Uncle Coleman said,
"Are you convinced?"
"Fully! The boy, Miss Frothing
ham, thanks you for showing him the
folly of trusting in the love of a co
quette. You have given me a sharp
lesson. Uncle Coleman; but I thank
you that my life has not been blighted
by a woman's treachery."
The pale face vanished. Uncle
Coleman, with a ceremonious bow, took
his departure, while Lucia Frothing
ham went into genuine hysterics on
Uncle Coleman joined Frank on the
porch and, linking his arm in his
nephew's, said kindly:
"Forgive me the pain I cause you
for the love I bear you."
"I thank you," was the reply. "You

showing me a mercenary woman's
treachery. I shall never feel any

writes to Mrs. Pinkhim: -
"I had been sick at my monthly
periods for seven years, and tried
almost everything I ever heard of, but
without any benefit. Was troubled
with backache, headache, pains in the
shoulders and dizziness. Through my
mother I was induced to try Lydia B.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and
it has done me so much good. I am

Mrs. HAnnr HBnAY, Riverside, Iows,
writes to Mrs. Pinkham the story of
her struggle with serious ovarian trou
ble, and the benefit she received from
the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound. This is her letter:
"How thankful I am that I took
your medicine. I was troubled for
two years with inflammation of the
womb and ovaries, womb was also very
ow. I wasin constant misery. I had
heart trouble, was short of breath and
could not walk five blocks to save my
life. 8Suffered very much with my
back, had headache all the time, was
nervous, menstruations were irregular
and painful, had a bad discharge and
was troubled with bloating. I was a
perfect wreck. Had doctored and
taken local treatments, but still wasno
better. I was advised by one of my
neighbors to write to you. I have now
finished the second bottle of Mrs. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, and am
better in every way. I am able to do
all my own work and can walk nearly
a mile without fatigue) something I
had not been able to do for over two
years.;: Your medicine has done, me
more good than all the doctors."
