The above question is often asked con-r-iiinsr
Dr. Pierce's two leading medi

The answer is that "Golden Medical

and acts especially favorably in a cura

her mother's. She had the
tall and forceful figure of her New
England forbears added to the tender
jrrace of the southern woman, una wltii
these she had the beauty . of sweet
brown eyes, waving brown hair and
such a color and complexion that they
xmight he called fairy gifts; also she
had visions of a career,
i She was not left unsought. An anx
I ious line of admirers filed through the
i wide gates of the old plantation home
and walked un between the box hedges
j to the wide veranda, where Mary gen
erally sat with her maiden aunt, the
latter making wonderful devices in tat
ting, and Mary, with her easel before
her, perfunctorily making sketches
which she rarely finished, but which
her aunt religiously preserved.
The Boutwell plantation had been a
large one before the war, but under
the inefficient care of the aunt had
dwindled steadily. Miss Boutwell had
unlimited power as guardian to buy;
sell, mortgage or borrow and lend.
The first waruiug of the final calamity
came along late in the fall and was in
the shape of a threatened foreclosure
of the mortgage on the last of the once
vast possessions the big and almost
empty house. Mary had spent money
lavishly in college and gave and lent
as her generous aunt had done in igno
rance of the real state of things. On
the 1st of January this money must be
paid. The aunt had been notified, but
let the matter drag, as she felt that
something would turn up to save their
home. Mary was trying to understand
the situation, but in vain.
And the young men came a-wooing.
They were all made welcome by the
romantic aunt and all invited to dinner
or supper, with the old open handed lib
erality, but Mary showed no favor to
any or e. But that Is not saying that
she did not think often of Bert Alh?n.
She could appreciate his character.
She had just come from college, where
much stress was laid upon mental at
tainment, aud she wondered how
it was that a young man ouly a clerk
in a lawyer's oliice could have learned
so much. She knew that he had lived
all his life here, that his parents had
died poor after the devastating war,
that he had had a bitter struggle, but
she could not understand how he had
learned so .much that the other young
men were totally ignorant of art. for
lnstau e, art. from its first inception
to the present day. in a!! its branches
What fcbo did not take into account
was that Bert had known her from In
fancy and that for her sake and to be
nble to properly appreciate her career
liJ gave every moment he could spare
to the study of all that books could
teach him and that when he had busi
ness north he fairly haunted the art
galleries and picture stores and stu
dios. IIH heart stink as the conviction
was forced upon him that it would be
uiauy years lefore Mary could hope
for success, if ever, for somehow he
came to see that, while she had unde
niable talent, she was not a genius,
and he knew that she had not the pow
er of steady and continuous work,
which sometimes almost equals real
genius. And he felt, too, that he could
plan a career for Mary that would be
far more satisfying to her than the
painting of mediocre pictures, but he
dared not give voice to his thought

This noble creature was in a small
neighboring place to which there was
no railroad, and Bert had had his
friend make a large box in which to
bring him to Mary's Lome. The box
was large and really quite handsome
and was provided wi tha li" holes. The
splendid dog would be taken in it to

in daylight, or, at least, that was
Bert's plan. A letterwas- written and
inclosed in a strong envelope, which
was also to contain the key to the pad

aud a hammer to fasten it on; the-top
of the box. .

Christmas fell on Saturday this year.
Bert had expected to le there every
evening during the week to help, but
Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday passed without a word from
him, nor did he come.
At first Mary was surprised, then
hurt, then indignant. Ho should have
sent her word at least if he had not In

with n hi'ititeiied color, but with a
heavier heart than the occasion war

The re::son f Bert's apparent defec

ployer, was dangerously ill. He was
nlnno in tlu frli1 li:irln! no roloHvn
living, aud it became Bert's duty to
remain with him aud take care of him,
for Mr. Burnside could not bear Bert
to leave- him. Bert had written to
Mary. and. with the strange generosity
which strikes any man when it regards
the woman he loves, Bert gave an old
negro a dollar to take tbe letter. The
dolhtr and a saloon proved too much
for the old man, and the next morning
I he was carried to the calaboose, while
the letter lay a soaked scrap of paper
in the mud.
