there's an angel up by the pulpit stair,
Of marble white ana cold,
A saint of goodly deeds so rare
That in history they are told.
But whenever I look his lips are dumb
And his eyes are turned away.
And I find that my heart and mind are
And I cannot think to pray..
A girl sits down in the pew beneath,
With serious, saintly eyes,
That gaze from, under her hat'a flower
In most demure surprise,
She looks my way and her eyes meet mine
With a smile so sweet and mint
That I find in my heart a prayer divine
To this pretty, modern saint.
And I vow old vows in my childhood made,
As I sit in the pew alone,
For I like a saint that is tailor made
Better than one of stone.

A THOUSAND THANKS.
I must see you to-day. Come at 9. I
Shall be home to no one else. Yours
Dick Tanqueray read the above and
threw the delicately perfumed coronet
ed note on the table, and, leaning
against the mantel-piece, moodily
reviewed the situation. Not alto
gether a pleasant one. A younger
son, .with barely anything but his
salary as a clerk in the foreign office,
the lookout was about as deplorable
as could be. Debts rapidly increasing,
and duns daily more insistent, with a
wretched book on the derby, while to
top all, here was the infatuation for
Lady Lanthwaite, and how that was
to terminate heaven only knew! In
timacy had grown into a warmer
and stronger feeling, and day by day
the pair had drifted on till it was
abundantly clear that, unless some
extraordinary bit of luck occurred,
the final smash could not be far off.
Dick could not exactly make out on
what footing he and Lady Lanth
waite really stood. She was not,
perhaps, exactly his ideal of what a
woman should be but, however he
might gird at his bondage when away
from her, he knew but too well that in
her presence he was her very slave.
He might have had small compunction
in following out his worst instincts,
but he was curiously held back by his
strange liking for Lanthwaite, a really
excellent fellow, who would have been
the last to believe his old Eton chum
could play him false. And, as a mat
ter of fact, Lanthwaite entirely trust
ed Tanqueray, and, in his blundering,
good-natured way, was always throw
ing the two together, when they would
have been better miles apart.
And now another difficulty had
arisen. Had Dick been clear of this
wretched entanglement, in which the
woman took everything and gave no
thing, a prospect, faint as yet certain
ly, but still with promise in it, had
broken on the horizon. For one of
the new debutantes of the sea
son, lovely and mistress of her own
fortune, had looked with anything
but unkindly eyes at handsome Dick—
who had, indeed, every thing in his
favor but his indebtedness. Then
again, Dick's uncle, fromwhomhe had
large expectations, had as much as
promised him that, if he would range
himself on a satisfactory footing, his
liabilities should be cleared off, and
that he should meet his bride far
from empty handed. It was just in
this state of mental worry and un
certainty that Dick stood at present.
He was so bound to Lady Lanth
waite that he could not see how he
could in any way break off his intim
acy with her, and until she herself
gave him his conge he must perforce
continue in his present atmosphere of
indebtedness and general bewilder
ment—with the prospect, too, of losing
the one chance of happiness which lay
before him, and of securing himself the
good will of his venerable uncle, who
would assuredly Jeave him without a
penny if lie in any way did anything
to cast a shadow on the family name.
However, there was the lady's*Ietter,
and to her he must go at once if he
was to be in Grosvenor Square at the
Lady Lanthwaite had directed that
she was to be at home to no one but
Mr. Tanqueray, and with a disturbed
look on her usually composed and
haughtily beautiful face, she sat wait
ing the arrival of. the man on whom
she felt she could rely in the difficulty
that had now to be met. Youiig and
nobly born, with every advantage
that wealth, beauty and position
could give her, Lady Lanthwaite was
very far from being satisfied or a
happy woman. Under her calm ex
terior there blazed passions that her
husband—good, easy fellow that he
was—knew little of and seemingly
cold and reticent, she lived for excite
ment in one form and another, and
was as reckless in her expenditure as
the veriest plunger on the turf specu
lations of all sorts were her craze'j and
there was no big event of any kind on
which she had not a heavy book.
And yet, with this strange .woman,,
her iextravagances were to some ex
tent dominated by the passion she
had for Dick Tanqueray, her feeling
for him being, in truth, far stronger
than she herself cared to recognize.
And she had written to him
with a set purpose, for she was in such
a position that it was beyond her wit
to conceive how she was to get out of
the impasse she was now in.
Her reflections were broken by the
opening of the door and the entry of
her expected visitor. -At once the
charm of her lovliness -and the soft,
low tones of her voice dispersed Dick's
good resolutions, and taking his place
on a low stool beside the fair siren,
who held him in her thrall, lie eagerly
demanded the cause of her wanting
him so hastily.
But a sudden change came over
Lady Lanthwaite. She now hesita
ted to speak of her trouble, and be
gan to doubt within her mind whether
it was, after all, quite fair to place her
harden on the man who had given so
much of his life to her. It was 'e^rly
summer and thflight was playing on
the trees in the square and flecking the
green leaves as they moved gently
the passing wind. Looking toward
the open window, through which the
hum and roar of the great city passed
with a never dying murmur, she seemed
almost to forget the man sitting be
side her, and closing her hands across
her knees gazed wistfully beyond, the
sweet flowers in the veranda, the
memory of earlier and better years
bringing the tears into her eyes.
"Why, Ida! What's up? This
must be something serious," remon
She hastily swept her hand over her
face, and was again almost herself.,
"Ah, Dickl what would it be to be
free—to be a girl again!"
"I think I prefer you as you are."
"But you never knew me a8 a girl."
"I know you now, and that's enough
"Fancy if we had met," she dream
ily went on.
"What's the use of going into the
might-have-beens? If you had seen
me the chances are you would not
have cared for me.
"I used to say," she musingly con
tinued, "with the girl in the* story,
that the man I marry must be hand
some, brave, clever and rich."
"And I might reply in the same way,
but as he did not, 'how fortunate we
,'Well, Dick, you are handsome, and
I dare say brave and clever, but—well,
you certainly are not rich."
"Nor can I say much about the
cleverness. At any rate, I seem to
make a jolly good mess of my own af
She did not appear to notice the
last sentence, and quickly rejoined:
"Oh, but you are clever, and it is
just because you are so that I partic
ularly want your help."
"Quite a charming situation! High
ly flattered, I'm sure, but I fear, Ida,
that you'll find me a very broken
reed to lean on."
"Broken or not," with a caressing
touch on his shoulder, "I do rely on
you. Oh, Dick, I'm in terrible
"Good heavens! What is it I can
do? You have but to command me
in any direction other than money
and I am your slave."
"But, unfortunately, it is money,"
she passionately cried, "andno small
sum, Listen! I can't stay to go into
particulars, but the long and short of
it is that I must have £500 before to
"What!" he exclaimed, turning and
meeting her glance.
"Yes, that is the identical sum."
"Can't you get Lanthwaite?"
"Don't be absurd," she somewhat
snappishly replied. "Of course I can't.
It is just because I most certainly
can't that I apply to you."
"This is why you sent so hurriedly
"Yes, and somehow or other, Dick,
you must get the money for me."
"But, my dear Ida," he remonstrat
ed, "I am a pauper. I am supposed
to exist on £600 a year and—don't"
"Still," and hereher eyes grew hard,
I ask you to procure me this .sum.
It is most absolutely necessary thatl
should have it by the time mentioned."
Tanqueray looked at her in bewil
"You must understand," he said,
"that although I would do anything
for you,having no credit I am abso
lutely powerless in this matter."
"All I understand is," she recklessly
made answer, "that men like you can
get money for your own needs, and so
I suppose it is to be raised somehow.
Of course it's only a temporary mat
ter. I will faithfully repay you. Nor
is it every woman," she added in a
quieter tone, ''who would so place her
self in the power of the man who pro
fesses to love her."
"Yes, yes," he assented, "I see all
that, but I have exhausted all credit,
and you know my uncle took his sol
emn oath that if ever I had anything
more to do with a bill discounter he
would cut me off."
"And so you refuse to help me?'' she
replied, ajittle contemptuously.
"I refuse! Oh, Ida How unjust you
are! Why, you know I'd do any mor
tal thing for you."
"Then it follows that may rely
"Well, I think I see a ry," he slow
ly said, after a pause, and there was a
colder ring in his voice and a tighten
ing of his lips. "At any rate, I'll do
"Oh, thanks, dear Dick—a thousand'
'Of course I may fail. You must
have the money by to-morrow night?
Well, time is short and I must set to
work at once. So, farewell, and esper
ance. I'll do my level best, and—and
consequences must take care of them
'Just so," she laughed, "they al
ways do, and so au revoir.
As soon as Tanqueray left the house
he stopped for a second, for, the truth
»was, he had received a great shock.
Ida knew perfectly well his dependent
position on his uncle and his impecu
nipsity, for he had confided all these
matters to her. And now, in the face
of this, without a, thought for him,
she had pledged him to obtain for her
this money, careless and indifferent as
to what ruin fell on liim inthe process.
After all, was this game he had been
so long playing worth the candle? His
intimacy with Ida had not been one
of unalloyed bliss and now she had
set herself before him in the worst
possible light—that of a thoroughly
selfish woman, perfectly indifferent to
she might bring on the man
she professed to regard. Well* it had
been no action of his that had led to
his disenchantment, and if this close
bond with Lady Lanthwaite were now
dissolved, what better could happen?
Another and a happier career was
open to him. He -might cast aside
this slough which had been eating into
his life for so long and with a sudden
quickening in his step, he passed on, a
new hope in his ghfiicie and & rush of
pleasant thpughts'in his mind.
"Still,""lie muttered to himself, "Ida
shall have the money if I can
get it for
her and, as she said, 'the consequen
ces caja.,take care of themselves.'"
There was only pne man who, on
this short notice could give him the
lOrV V, ,-v
sum required, and, greatly daring, to
this man, who was no other than Ida's
husband, he determined to proceed.
As he expected he found him at the
Flantagenent Club, and, drawing him
on one side, he said that lie had some
thing of importance to mention to
he two men entered a smok
ing room that at this hour of the day
was little used, and,, finding the place
empty, Lanthwaite, motioning Dick
to a seat beside him on the lounge
sofa, cheerily inquired what it was
he had to say.
"I want to ask you a very consider
able favor," b^gan Dick, constrained
'Granted before asKed, and now
tell me what it is?"
"But you have not yet heard what
"I am sure it's nothing unreason
"I fear you will think it most un
reasonable. The fact is that I must
have £500 before this time tomorrow
"You can't borrow it elsewhere?"
"Just so, except at cent, per cent.
With more time I might manage, but
as it stands I simply can't."
"Well, £500 is a large order," said
Lanthwaite, considering: "and I am
not sure that I have so much loose
cash at my banker's. However
"I forgot to say, Lanthwaite, that I
only want the money temporarily, and
that, on my honor, I will repay you
days," interrupted Dick,
ing largely on your good nature, but,
believe me, I will be true to my bond."
And there and then, like the good
fellow he was, he handed over the
check for the required amount.
"Just one word, Lanthwaite, I'd
rather you'd say nothing of this to
"My dear fellow, of course not, I
wont even tell Lady Lanthwaite. By
the way, she's not been looking her
"I saw her the afternoon. The
rush of London life is evidently too
much for her."
"Yes, and for ray part I shall be
glad to get her down in the country.
Well, ta-ta, old man. Look us up
whenever you can."
Early next morning Dick cashed the
check and at once inclosed the notes
to Lady Lanthwaite with the brief
"£500 inclosed in notes. Will ex
plain more fully when we meet. r. t."
A little later in the day he wrote to
Lanthwaite at the clubs as follows:
Dear Lanthwaite: As to the £500 you
so very kindly lent me yesterday, and
which I promised to pay within ten days.
I am happy to be able to say that a remit
tance I unexpectedly received this morning
enabled me to at once clear off the debt.
Not finding you at home, and not being
sure of your whereabouts, 1 handed the
amount to Lady Lanthwaite. A thousand
thanks for the good service rendered.
The Two Republics, while opposed
to dueling, which is contrary to law,
thinks that, since so many prominent
citizens favor it, the law against duel
ing should be abolished, or, rather,
that dueling should be legalized. Duel
ing is a relic of barbarism yet it is a
means of settling personal difficulties
preferable to street encounters with
pistols. The Express is not in favor
of abolishing our laws against dueling,
but it believes that street encounters
and duels could be most effectually
stopped by legalizing dueling.

of the.story: "I must tell you that it
is so. In 1876 I hired to Col. Young
to drive a team. Mr. Young told me
he would give me work and secure me
from all dangers. It was a lovely
June night, when Mr. Cartlege asked
me.to go with him to the falls. I told
him I would. We were talking on the
girl question, when suddenly I saw a
man rise to his feet with a. very seri
ous look, presenting his deadly rifle
at me. As I turned I shouted, Take
care of yourself, Joe!"
"I struck a bee line for the hotel.
The sharp report of a pistol followed
my good legs. I cried I felt the ball
hit: I felt the, blood run down my
back but had no time to tarry. I
met Mr. Yoiing in the yard, and after
a hearty laugh he told me it was the

That Appeals to Every Mother in
No county official In East Tennessee
Is better known and more highly es
teemed than Mr. J. C. Wilson, Circuit
Court Clerk of Rhea County, the home

dence and respect of all classes, and
In his business community his word
is as good as his bond. Just now Mr.
Wilson is receiving heartiest congratu
lations from his numerous friends be
cause of his restoration to robust health
of his estimable wife, who has for
years bean a helpless' invalid. Mrs.
Wilson's high standing in society, and
her many lovable traits of character
have won her a host of friends, and her
wonderful recovery has attracted wide
As the Press was the medium of
bringing to the invalid lady's atten
tion the remedy that has effected her
remarkable cure, a reporter was sent
to Dayton to interview Mrs. Wilson,
in order that tlie general public might
have the benefit of the sufferer's ex
perience and be made aware of the
treatment that wrought such a mar
velous change in her condition. The
reporter was welcomed at the Wilson
home, and the enthusiastic lady with
becoming reluctance gave the history
of her affliction and the manner in
which she was relieved:
"Yes," said Mrs. Wilson, "I was for
8 years an invalid with one of the most
distressing afflictions woman can suf
fer. For 8 years I moped around,
dragging myself with difficulty and
pain out of bed. My little ones went
untrained and were greatly neglected
while I looked listlessly and helplessly
at the cheerless prospect before me
and them. I suffered the most intense
pains in the small of my back, and
these seemed even greater in the region
of the stomach, extending down to the
groins. I suffered agony sleeping or
awake. Despair is no word for the
feeling caused by that dreadful sensa
tion of weakness and helplessness I
"I was treated for my trouble by sev
eral local physicians, but they were
able to give me only temporary relief
by the use of sedatives and narcotics.
I had almost given up all hope of ever
securing permanent relief when I saw
an account in the Press of a cure which
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had affected.
I decided to try them, as I knew the
lady who had been cured and had
great confidence in her statement. I
began to take the pills in October, 1893,
and in two months I was doing light
housework and attending to the child
ren without any bad effects or weak
ness, such as I had formerly experienc
ed. Hitherto, I had been unable to
retain any food, but now my appetite
grew stronger, and with it came back
that old, healthy, tone of the stomach.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured me,
and I assure you the cure has brought
a great change in our home." I can
now rejoice in my husband's success,
for I feel that I have something to live
for. Who has a better right tofeel this
than a monthsr? One thing more. I
have recommended these pills to others
and many of the women of Dayton
have taken them with good results,
and it is my greatest pleasure to rec
ommende to every suffering woman a
remedy that has done so much for me."
An analysis proves that Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills for Pale People con
tain in a condensed form all the ele
ments necessary to give new life and
richness to the blood and restore shat
tered nerves. They are an unfailing
specific for such diseases as locomo
tor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus'
dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism,
nervous headaches, the after effects of
la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale
and sallow complexions, that tired feel
ing resulting from vitiated humors in
the blood, such as scrofula, chronic
erysipelas, etc. They are also a speci
fic for troubles peculiar to females,
such as suppressions, irregularities,
and all forms of weakness. In men
they effect a radical cure in all cases
arising from mental worry, overwork,
or excesses of whatever nature.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People are now manufactured by the
Dr. Williams' Medicine Company,
Schenectady, N. Y., and are sold in
boxes (never loose form by the dozen
or hundred, and the public are caution
ed against numerous imitations sold in
this shape) at 50 cents a box, or six
boxes for $2.50, and may be had of all
