IJepublislieil by piTinission from lionton Sunday Globe. CHAP. V. "When I received the telegram inform ing inu that Job Eldridgo had started for Oakland, I was naturally very much chagrined and disappointed at the ooirso affairs had taken. As long as ho re mained in town, I liad hope s of reeovnr i njj the doeds, fori thought It possible that ho might retain them In his uos aession for a time, thinking to uso ttiom as a lover for iho furtherance of somt schemo. His departure was evidence to tny mind that ho had no such object in yiew, as tho papers would ho of no ns to tho llaruiltons, or any ono else, in a fow hours. Clearly his only motive was revenue and, such being th case, ho would doubtless destroy them nt onre and thus cut off any chance of their fal ling into the handi of thir owner. Tho danger of having them found in bis pos session would be another incentivo to uch a course. After Ivan and Charlie loft tun I taken tho precaution to retain fivory attorney In Lakovillo in behalf of my unole, so that a telegram from Boston or olsu virbera instructing tbotu-to issue papers and seize the Hamilton property would securo no attention. That would delay the blow for a time at l'.'ust.'but I had a premonition that thoj 'midnight train from the south would bring some of tho creditors and their attorneys. Tho hours wore slowly away, and, ae the time approached for the arrival of tho night train , I looked my office, and skirted forth partly to see if my apprehensions were to he realized and partly because I had a dim hop that my undo might have received bis telegram in season to take") that train home. Of this, however, there seemed little probability. It bad rained st.ond ily for tho past two hours, and the night was almost cheerless ono, which fart did not tend to raisi my drooping spirits. I mat only ouo person upon the street and that was Mr. Knight, the registrar of deeds'for that county, who was doubt less roturning from soma lodge meeting. Recognizing me as wo met,. ho detained tpo'fora moment , to make an inquiry j concerning some business which ho had entrusted to my charge. While he wai spoaking'we beard the sound of Inot beats upon tho street., and presently some ono riding at a sharp gallop pass ed us and pulled up in', front of Mr. Knight's house which was. close by. fhoii afiCro came a sharp cry, followed by a groan, and burrving to the spot wo found my partner stretched motionless upon tho sidewalk, whilo near by stood a jjdd and steaming horse. Weak and weary from bis long ride, and chilled to tho marrow by the driving storm, he had in attempting to dismount, fallen against an iron post in front of the curb stone. As 1 stooped to raise bim he moaned slightly, and, oponing his eyes, saw Mr. linight and myself. ' "More." he gasped faintly, extending something toward Knight, "thes are for record at once," and ho turned his gazo on mo, his eyes asking thoqu-istion that his lips rofused to utter. . 'It's all right, old boy, you're just in the nick of time," I said, in responso to bis look: "but you badly hurt." A thankful light came into his eys as ho heard the words which told him that bis long ride had not been in vain and he tried to speak, but was too weak and soon sank into unconsciousness. We boro him to my house, which for tunately was not many tods distant, and a physician was at on 00 summoned. Throughout the ntuui wo used every means that medical skill and r-e-nian ingenuity could suggest to restore animation, but all efforts to muse him proyed futile. Too doctor said that he bad received a severe spinal Injury, which, together with tho fatigue and exposure of bis long rido. rendered his recovery extremely doubtful. Toward morniug he rallied, and for a time we were soma what honeful. but bis im provement was but temporary. At noon nxt day Charlie arrived from Oakland, hnving been discharged upon a tcchuical defect'in the complaint, and briefly narrated tho facts already known to the reader. Leon learning Ivan's condition he reproached himself bitter lv for having allowed him to attempt auch a feat as his midniirbt ride from Oukland. "I was taken by surprise," he said, "and lost whatever sense 1 ever had. If I bad stopped to realize what a ri.sk Ivan would have to taka, I should have knocked over a couple of th6se duffers with the bull of my pistol and ridden away before tho others had rocovered - from their astonishment. 1 was, just roady to mount," he added, in a tone of d discruse, "and when I think what an elegant chance that fat constable gave me to tap him under the ear when he nut bis hand on m v sbou'dr, and htiw easily I could have bluffed the rest, il iiiake uie ut some kind friend, to take uie out and shoot uie." Wo hd telegraphed fer Ivan's raronls who at that timo resided intiei Stale of New York, early in tb'j nnrning. hut thy could not reach Lakoville before tho evening of thfl n xt day. About tho middle of the afternoon, while Charlie and 1 were watching by our friend's bedside, he suddenly opened hi ejf s aud in soineth ng like his nat ural tone of voice asked to see Isabel. She dianod to bo in the adjoining roi.m and hearing hia request, glided to his side and clasped tho white, hnlpbss hand that lay stretched upon the coun terpane. "Isabel,"' be flaid faintly, "I heard them say a short time ago that I could n't last much longer, so now it will do no harm for you, to know how much I havo loved you all the" years. Of course I ws neve;' idivt enough to sup pose that you could care for such a piti ful, crippled" A grat wave of feeling swept across Isabel Hamilton's countenance and throwing herself on ber knees beside tho bod she kissed him 011 the lips once, twice, thrice, and burying her face in the pillow, hurst into a wild pension of toa rs. Tho dying man's features were trans figured by a look in which lovo, joy and triumph were si.rang"'.,v blended. "My darling," he sid, "do net weep. You havo paid for my poor life a thous and fold." And ho lay holding hor hand until tho day, cloned, and then the light fad ed from, bio eyes, and juit when U10 western sky was illu;uiud by tht matchless splondor of it perfect autumn aunaat, the soul of Ivn tt.ileigh broke from its fleshy prison, and passed be yond tho clouds and mists that hide from mortal eyes the tiocrois of eternity.

The most common symptoms are shortness of breath after any kind of exertion; fluttering or palpitation, hungry and faint spells, swelling of the feet, pa; a ia left breast or under left shoulder blade, etc. Heart trouble Is frequently accom panied with nervousness, irritability, unsound sleep. Dr. Miles' Heart Cure is the most reliable medicine known for such troubles and will positively give relief. The following letter is received from Mrs. M. A. Birdsall, one of the most prominent l:dies In serial and church circles in Watkins, "N. Y. "About one year ago I was taken with extreme nervousness and palpi tation of the heart, accompanied at times with an oppressed feeling in the chest and a shortness of breath. I also had severe pain in the left side and under the left shoulder. My appetite was very poor and my general health miserable. I began taking Dr. Miles' Heart Cure, and after taking four bottles I waa entirely free from pain; my appetite returned and I feltgreatly improved. I have had no return cf the heart trouble 6incc taking your New Heart Cure. For years I had constant pain in the right ovary. I was unable to wear my corset without suffering intense pain. For this trou ble I have sp.nt hundreds or dollar3 employingphysicians and buying med icine. 'Nothing seemed to do any good until I began taking Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Tills. They brought relief at once and I think they aro indis pensable, and can heartily recommend them to ladies who are suffering from such troubles. I wish every woman who suffers as I did would give Dr. Miles' Restorative Remedies a trial." About liable. (Published by r- quest.)
