Give the children a Chance
There is something radically wrong
with the health of n child when it seems
listless, has poor or no appetite, eyes
sunken and with dark skin beneath. In
most cases showing these symptoms the
child has worms, and all that it needs is
some simple remedy, such as Hart's Worm
Cream, to exel the worms, and the child
will soon be in perfect health again. Pa
rents, try it and let your little ones hove
a fair chance for life.

The summer had come in the moun
tains. The snow and ice were gone
from the valleys, but high up in the
peaks of the Alps the glaciers hung,
threatening avalanches. In the blithe
spirits engendered by the freRh, warm
air, the villagers, whose homes were in
the valley of the Drause, smiled back at
the menacing leer of the glaciers.
There was happiness in the narrow
valley, happiness due to the promise of
the season, to the mating of young men
and maidens, to the sunshine' warming
the gelid blood of the old men and wo
men. The children frolicked in the
towns. A gay note resounded in the
valley and was echoed by the bills; the
voices of all the mountaineers were
pitched in a high Jjey. indicative of light
ness of heart.
And amid nil the gladness there came
tone of surprise that deepened into the
aver voice of alarm, apprehension,
What can it mean?" neighbor asked of
neighbor. The sun shone in their faces,
but could not dispel the shadow of fear.
The Drause had dried up suddenly.
iere waH no water in the narrow, deep
channel, and up above on the mountains
le biiow and ice were melting and run
ning in ever swelling streams into ine
ver. Floods were usual, the villagers
wavs smiled at the torrent; for, know
ing the height to which it would rise.
ley had built beyond its reach. Neigh
bors would lean out of their windows
ami talk to each other in loud tones
above the angry river, and lovers would
hold trysts on the bridges that were
swung across it. No, from the usual
summer flood there was no danger, but
the drought portended ill. Where but
an hour before gladness reigned, terror
But Franz, the light footed guide, sure
on a precipice as a goat and strong as a
mountain lion, bade the villagers be of
good cheer and he would soon bring
iack news from the hills. He yodeled a
farewell to Ilka, his love, and bounded
up the valley, the terror stricken inhab
itants looking after him in dumb fear.
He was not gone long, and when he
came running down the hill the villagers
gathered about bim anxiously.
They are drowning above wnue you
are almost dying of thirst here, he said.
The glacier has slipped into the river
and formed a gorge that is damming
back the water. It is rising and sub
merging the hamlets clinging to the rock
above the dam. Soon the river will rise
aliove the gorge and break it, or we shall
be swept awav.
Cries of horror, groans of anguish,
greeted his story. Helplessly, strong
men looked at each other and at their
homos, which they could not carry to
laces of safety. Women clung to their
children, while they embraced each other
and wept Ilka, pale and trembling, but
fearless, stood by her lovers side.
Franz," she said, and her voice never
was inure sweet to nun, wno loveu every
uoie of it, "you said it was Ice, and ice
can be cut."
Yes; it can be cut," Franz replied,
embracing her; and the words passed
from Hi) to lip. "It can be cut.
UVsoliit ion followed quickly upon the
realizalion that the only way to avert
the clanger was to cut a channel through
the gorge and thus let the waters escape
gradually. A party of ax men, Franz at
their hend, was formed, and, bidding the
women dy to the hills with the children,
the ivscicrs marched rapidly, with axes
on their shoulders, to face the terrible
danger, to engage in combat with it, and
defeat, if possible, tin- fullilment of its
threat. The hasty gathering together of
provisions for the ax men bad not al
lowed of farewells, but Franz had oppor
tunity to say to Ilka as she hung a bag
over his shoulder:
Loved one, do not come baok to the
valley until I come for you. Promise."
She sealed the promise with a kiss,
and then gave him her lithe strength to
the HKsi.-ting of the old and feeble to a
place where the flood could not reach
The ax men went to work with desper
ation to cut a channel in the solid mass
of ice. They were divided into two par
ties and worked toward each other. The
work did not flag a moment, for when
one man- was exnaustea, snowier voo
his place. By thus relieving each other
they pushed the work rapidly. Not one
of them faltered or grew weak through
fear, and they all knew that at any mo
ment the dam might break and hurl them
to death against the rocks below.
The two cuttings were approacmng
each other and they seemed to be near
together, when it was discovered that a
mistake had been made in the course,
wad that they would pass instead of
meeting. This discovery caused momen
tary dismay, for the water was almost at
the" top of the dam, and apparently there
would lie no time to cut across irom one
canal to the other before it overflowed.
But Frnn. tireless and full of courage,
ran to the top of the glacier, swinging
his ax and culling to others to follow,

Just when the lookout Bhouted: "Run!

cross channel was cut to the depth of the
other two, and the men fled for their
lives. The water poured into the sluice
they had made, washed out the blocks of
ice they left, anil poured in a strong but
not dangerous flood into the lied of the
A shout of joy arose from the throats
of the exhausted men, who saw the suc
cess of their desperate efforts to save
their homes, and who threw themselves
on the ground to rest, while boys who
had been watching the work ran along
the mountain sides shouting the glad tid
ings. The women heard the news with
thanksgiving and returned to their home
to prepare food for the men. The chil
dren ran with them, but the youths de
layed to help t lie old and feeble, and their
return was slower than that of the wo
men, but not less joyous.
But Ilka would not leave the moun
tain, though the maidens coaxed her to
join their chorusof joy. She would wait
until Franz came, for so she had promised
him. She sat on the rock upon which
most of the women bad camped, and lis
tened to the singing and glud shouts that
came from the valley, and all the while
looking and longing for the coming of
Frunz up the hillside.
Suddenly she leaped to her feet and
held her breath, while she put her hand
to her heartand terror blanched her face.
Her rosy cheeks, which Franz loved to
kiss, and which were envied by all the
young women of Martigny, became white
and cold as snow.
A report louder than a simultaneous
discharge of many cannon had burst
upon her ears. It came from the direc
tion of tho gorge and terrified every per
son in the valley. Women ran out of
the houses asking the cause. The young
women paused in the pawi of thanks
giving, the youths halted with the old
men. All queried: "What was that?
The men leaped to their feet from the
easy positions in winch they had been
lying, and wrung their hands in agony.
Some in grim irony threw their axes
into the flood. The channel had weak
ened the great ice dam and it could not
stand the heavy weight of the water be
hind it, and with a deafening noise it
gave way. the dammed up waters
d into the bed of the river, and
swept upon the valley. The men stood
helplessly watching it.
Ilka from her post on the rock saw It
coming and her clear voice rang out
like a bugle:
Run! run to the mountains! The
flood is upon you!"
And many, heeding, ran; but some
stopped to save valuables, and the youths
would not desert the feeble. These were
drowned in Martigny; they who delayed
for gold, the helpless, and they who
stayed by their side to assist them out of
the reach of the waters, and many chil
dren who were playing in the streets
where their mothers could not find them.
Ilka on the high rock saw the devasta
tion and death wrought by the flood that
passed quickly in its wild rush. But
many were saved, and when the men
scrambling along the mountain sides,
came looking for their wives and chil
dren, they learned that Ilka had warned
the villagers. Those who found some of
their family blessed her, but those who
came back to learn that all whom they
held dear were dead, gnashed their teeth
and clinched their hands until the nails
of their fingers drew blood.
But Ilka sat still. She knew Frani
was looking for her on the mountain,
for she had been told he was not injured
by the flood; and the impulse to yodel
was strong within her. None had
voice like hers, and if it should ring out
on the silence of tho valley, where there
was only dumb, despairing grief, he
would hear and answer. But she could
not; it would be such a mockery to be
joyous amid all that woe. fcoshe waited,
and presently she heard Franz yodeling
on the mountain, and she climbed to
him, but did not answer. She was fleet
and strong, and soon crossed his path
and in the solitude of the mountain they
met and kissed; but they were silent, foi
both felt the presence of death in the
valley below. After a few moments of
grateful joy that they had been spared
to each other, they went swiftly to thf
valley, to minister to the sorrow stricken.
