Vm term "buccaneer" Is associated Ja iuost people's minds with that of 'pirate." the buccaneers were at first privateers authorized to prey on Span ish commerce, birt afterward degener ated into sea robbers. On one of these buccaneer ships more than a century ago among the crew was a woman dressed In man's clothes.. She had worn this attire for several years ns a soldier mid had taken part in a num ber of battles. When peace came she concluded to try the sea, and, shinning ... iiiuii'i, juineu ine uuc caneers. The secret of her sex was well preserved, and not a person knew that she was a woman. Anne Trestwieh, or Peter rrostwich. as she was known on the buccaneer, fell desperately in love with one of the pallors, rcrcival Whit ford, a large, blue eyed, flaxen haired, devil may care fel low, who, though he treated Anne in ns friendly a manner as any one else, not knowing that she was a woman, had no thought of the tender passion. Anne concealed her love, not daring to reveal It with a confession of her sex for fear that Percy would be re lulled by the knowledge. For months she worshiped him In secret Then an opportunity arose for revealing her love under the most favorable circum stances. Percy foocurne Involved In a quarrel with a sailor named Mniikin. and a challenge- passed. Whitford and Millikin were in different watches, and the duel could not take place until after eight bells in the afternoon. Shortly after dinner a number of the crew were lolling on the forecastle, anions them Anne Prestwleh and Millikin. "You'll make short work of the blue eyed fellow," remarked one of the men to Millikin. "If he does," said Anne, "it'll be by foul means." "What:" cried Millikin, starting up, wliile the others looked thunderstruck. "Didn't you hear me?" replied Anne. "Cowards don't fight fair. They al ways manage to get some advantage." "You dare say this to me!" shouted Millikin, standing on his feet and put tins his hand to his kuife. "I say nothing except what's true." Millikin made n rush for Anne, but those present stood between. "I'll have your life for this!" cried Millikin. "As soon as I get through with Whitford I'll attend to you." "Why wait for that?" asked Anne coolly. "This is as good a time as any, and you'll have to wait till eight bells for Whit ford." "Agreed. I'll fight you now. Draw!" "I have choice of weaiins, and 1 choose swords," said Anne. A ring was formed, a couple of or dinary swords were brought ui from below, and the two opponents set to I Ten Death Fritin turtliin. .Cleveland.

Anne, the ex-soldier, who had been drilled In sword exercise in bar racks, from the first showed her su periority to Millikin. wliose only prac tice had been in action with the cutlass. She received n few scratches which her opponent intended for mortal wounds, and, watching her opportunity, run him through the heart. Millikin dropped dead, and Anne, wipini; her sword on her trousers, turned and went down the oompanionway. "When Whitford came off watch he had been told that there was no quar rel on his hands since Peter Prestwleh had removed his antagonist. He went straight to Anne, whom he found in the forecastle. "rote," he said, "what do you mean by taking my quarrel?" "I had as good a right to fight him ns you." "But they say you insulted him with out cause. Then you proposed to fight him before I had my turn with him." "Yes; that's true."1 "Weil, it's plain that yon stepped in between him and me. Millikin never injured you. Tell me why you have In terfered to shield me." Anne turned away, but there was something in the glance she gave him that sent a thrill through him, though he did not know why. The next day the buccaneer touched port at one of the coast towns, and when the first batch of shore leaves were granted it happened that Peter Prestwleh and Percy Whitford were among the number who went ashore. When they reached the quay Anne went off by herself, while the others sought the nearest saloon. Later they drifted Into the San Louis tavern, and while they were standing at the bar a waiter stepped up to Percy Whitford and whispered that a lady wished to see him in a pnr!or upstairs. Not aware that he knew any woman in the place, he hesitated a moment, then, without speaking of his going, sauntered out. When he entered the room there was but one woman in it. A trim figure ptood before the window robed in u plain hut Beat gown, cut In the fashion of the times, while on the head was'n cap which entirely concealed the ba hair. Percy advanced, and as he did so the woman turned, but while his face was in the full light of the window hers was not. There was something very familiar In the rather attract!" -face. Percy was sure he knew the gir1 but could not place her. "Lassie," he said, "you've got the bet 0t of me. What? Fete, Prestwleh in woman's clo'hes?" He started back. Something came rushing over him like the moving of a f reat flood. "Not a man; a woman," said Anne, looking down at the floor. The revelation to Percy that a wom an had stood between him and an even chance between life and death resulted in a complete conquest. They left the buccaneer service, married and lived te Ute of planters. LOUISE BRISTED. 7 1 r IfKtou. Ky..

"When he realized what he had done he did everything in his power to straighten out affairs, and he intends to do more. When all is over Wilson & Smith will be able to realize a profit of at least $100,000 from the operations of a man who was insane on the sub ject of real estate speculations and whose mental derangement was due en tirely to being overworked. If Frank Is arrested, as has been hinted, we feel that the revelation of the true facts in the case will be a good and sufficient defense for him."

Notwithstand lng the publication dispatches from various foreign cities questioning tin stent of the promises made to the American government by China and Russia respecting Manchuria, the o!ii cials here positively decline to add to or take one word from the statement published from Washington just before the departure of Secretary Hay, to the effect that satisfactory assurances had been received that two or more Man churiau ports would be opened to-the world's trade. It is quite certain thai China, which is here regarded as the sovereign power in Manchuria, made these pledges and it is equally certain that the United States government fully Intends that they shall be kept. The details referred to in the original statement as requiring adjustment are still unsettled, but the state depart nient is patient, resting in full confi dence of the opening of the ports re quired within a reasonable length oi time. It Is true,' as stated in the Lou don dispatches, that Japan looks with suspicion upon the ' Russian pledges relative to Manchuria and has lndi cated to the state department that they are not satisfactory, but so far the de partnieut sees no reason to accept tha view. 1IIRTHFUL BURNED TO DEATH, One Hundred Thousand Hollar Thor onulibrpil.

If there is anything in the theory that we get our heaven and hell here on earth, it could be said with perfect truth that a fl medical prescription known as D. D. D., literally lifted this man out of hell. The awful miseries of a poisoned skin can be understood only by the afflicted. The nights of sleepless agony with hands tied to prevent tearing the flesh, the rundown general condition which results, and the black hopelessness of life can all be visibly traced in the first of these photos. As will be seen, this man is a man of powerful physique, but it will be seen from his face in the first picture that it is a grim struggle to live and keep up his courage. In contrast, if the reader will fairly consider the picture after treatment with D. D. D., anew man is seen. Study this picture; contrast the two. Something has worked a wonder here. Reader, it was nothing on earth but D. D. D. and a kind Providence which directed the attention of this man to a public announcement about this medicament and its wonderful work in such cases. Providence went farther than this; it gave him some confidence in what he read. He made up his mind that he would try it. To this fact he owes all the peace, content and happiness so plainly seen in his face in the second picture. He states that after the third application of the remedy all his previous distress had disappeared entirely. The fevered condition resulting from continued irritation had subsided and he slept soundly nights. The name of this get'.eman is Mr. Henry Walters, of St. Louis, Mo. We have the sworn affidavit of Mr. Walters that in just twenty-nine days after starting treat ment with I). D. D. he discontinued further use of it, every Visible trace of the dis ease having disappeared. Since that time not a trace of the trouble has shown itself 'on any part of his body. His hair has since grown long and the scrubby beard pre viously grown on his face to hide the sores, is kept cleanly shaved, and he is today a man of strikingly fine appearance, with the highest ambition and activities in life and every happiness possible to most men here on earth. Results of this kind that are proven to be directly due to a preparation of this sort certainly call for public ap preciation. This prescription in sealed bottles, bearing authentic label of I). D. I). Co. of Chicago, sold at fl. The bottle is a liberal one and has proved .sufficient to entirely cure many cases. . Eczema is probably the worst and most stubborn of skin diseases, and it was for this that this presc ription was studied out and perfected, but all skin diseases are caused bv para sites or soma form of germ liie in the skin-structure. Tha prescription quickly and entirely annihilates ail forms of parasitic life lodsed anywhere in the skin. Manv people imagine they have blood trouble when they break out with some form of skin affection, but not in one case in a hundred is this a fact, as the very healthiest blood is often found in the strongest men affected with breaks and erup tions of some kind in the skin, lo all such cases the trouble is at the suriace or near the surface, and it can be searched out and annihilated completely by this preparation. The Above Is True. We have received carefully prepared and fully attested documents and particulars regarding the case pbove mentioned of Mr. Henry Walters, of St. Louis, a victim of psoriasis, a form o." eczema. We can say to all persons afflicted with any form of skin disease that the medical testimony submitted shows beyond a doubt that they can cure themselves by the use of this preparation. We say beyond a doubt. We mean this fully, providing the affection is really a skin disease, as it has been shown that each of the known germs that cause skia affection have been entirely routed out and conquered by the preparation. , - - , Red Cross Pharmacy, 160 North Main St., Barre, Vt. r,i. ---l n let Shot.
