3 AN OUT-OF-DATE COUPLE. W are "so out of dute," tboy toy Ned and I ; We love in an old-faxliionvd wny, Long hinre pone by. He says I am Inn blimute true In everything: And I well, 1 will own to you He is my Ling. We met in no romantic way Twixt "glow and gloom," lie wooed tne on a Winter day, And in a room; Yet, through life's hours of stress and storm When griefs befell Lore kept our small home corner warm, And ull was well. Ned thinks no woman like his wife But let that pnss; Perhaps we view the dual life Through roseate gluss ; Even if the prospects be not bright, We hold it true That heaviest burdens may grow light When shared by two. I'pon the gilded scroll of fame, Ktnblnzoned fair, I cannot hope to read the name I proudly bear; But, nappy in their even flow, The years glide by ; We are iM'hiud the times, we know Ned and I. Chambers' Journal. KAROAMA. A BIZZARRE. M. Carrie Hyde in Chicago Record. continued. CHAPTER X. THE DOCTOR. As summer slid gradually iuto au tumn it was observed that Karoama growing more listless and inert, danc ed less and less her harmless whorls, and pined uncomplainingly but so evidently, that it was determined to consult a doctor. "We will just walk over to Dr. Nozome's this morning," said Miss Mary to Karoama, "and see if he has cot a tonic for you." And, Karoa ma showing no sign of objection, they entered his office among his earliest patients. "Our young lady, Dr. Nozome. You may remember meeting her at our company last June, said Miss Mary. "I do, indeed, remember her," re plied the doctor, advancing his hand cordially, "and T have heard of her since through my daughters and George, though I don't mean to give the poor fellow away. Here, Miss Mary, take this seat, and as for the young people, continued the doctor, glancing jokingly at Karoama, "they don t mind standing." "That is just it," said Miss Mary, plunging at once into her errand. "Jvaroama does seem to mind stand ing," and she noted how readily the girl sunk into the easy-chair which the doctor now placed for her. "You must tell us what to do for her." "Tut, tut!" said the doctor smiling and turning his keen eyes full upon Karoama. "This will never do, Miss Karo. How is your appetite ?" "Not worth anything, doctor," an swered Miss Mary for Karoama, knowing full well how little she would say for herself. "Well, suppose Miss Karo, you take off that-veil I never like them and let me see your tongue," suggest ed the doctor. Karoama removed her veil, but shut her teeth closely and smiled half-misihievously into the doctor's face. "Karoama, dear, do open your mouth like a good girl," requested Miss Mary. "Never mind," said the doctor ac commodatingly. "Let m,e feel your pulse." Ungloving her hand, Karoama held out her long, slim wrist for his touch. "Nothing, nothing wrong, Miss Mary," he exclaimed, reassuringly. "Ferhaps a trifle slow, that's all, in dicating a slight loss of vitality; an apathetic condition of the system which need not worry you at all. We will soon fix that. The system needs arousing, waking up. Suppose we try a little galvanism, Mihs Karo," and, attaching the electrodes to his battery, he pursuaded Karoama to apply one to the palm of each hand. It was a large arid powerful ma chine, but in vain did the doctor in crease the strength of the application , adding cell after cell, until its lull force was applied, yet Karoama eat "there as unaffected as if she held but two door knobs. "Hum!" said the doctor, intensely surprised at this phenomenon and looking keenly at Karoama; then, examining the battery and redamp ing the the electrodes, after shutting off many cells, he applied his thumbs cautiously and received a shock which made him jump. "We will try once more, Miss Ka ro," he said, returning the poles to her, and still the willing battery, working to its utmost capacity, pro duced no effect on Karoama. The skeleton within the doctor's closet or the bust above his door would have felt it more. "Take Miss Karo home, Misa Ma ry," he said in compressed excite ment and visibly agitated. "Let her take this prescription and I will call to-morrow." "What shall I tell brother John ?" asked Miss Mary, disturbed by the perturbed manner which had taken the place of the doctor's usual cool ness. "Tell him there is nothing alarm ingthat is, tell him," and the doc tor became more collected, "if I can get off I am coming in to spend to morrow evening with him. He will be at home as usual, I suppose, and I would like to find the young lady in also and become better acquaint ed with her. She is a patient I want to study if she doesn't object, and, by the way," plenty of mutton broth for her, whether she's willing to take other food or not." Miss Mary was perplexed and dis- Katihfied, and the doctor detecting it. taid : "There is no cause for worry nt present, yet there is something I cannot altogether explain in I was going to s.iy "the case," he contin ued, looking at Karoama fixedly, "but we won't call it by that name, but substitute Karoama. There is something Icannot yetexplainabont Misa Karoama. Isn't that better ?" Karoama smiled broadly and Miss Mary nssured hersvlf that her charge already "felt better." The next evening the doctor came, as he had planned. "A treat, I declare," he said, "to spend a social evening and get away from that ofiice, and 1 told that ras cally George of mine, w hom I left in charge, that no matter what hap pened I was not to be sent for, no there he is, thinking it hard lines he couldn't come too. when he heard where I was coming, but we poor doc tors," he chattered on, "need relaxa tion as well as others and I'm count ing the days when George shall have finished his medical course and will come to my assistance a fresh young practitioner." Karrama v. as present when the doctor was admitted and while he thus talked glibly on, touching one topic and then another, he closely studied her every movement. She did not seem to mind this close Bcrutiny and brought her timbrel at Miss Mary's bidding, and played upon it and showed him her writing and drawing books, filled with ex quisitely correct work. "I see in your drawings," observed the doctor, "a preference for Egyp tian subjects and especially their ru ins. Aren't these the statues of Mem non, this the interior of an ancient temple and this is a view of ruins on the island of " . "Phitae," pronounced Karoama for him. "Yes," he assented. "I am not up on Egyptian subjects and I'm afraid of confounding the modern with the ancient names; do you ever do that?" She nodded a friendly no. "Your drawing, it seems to me, looks as practiced as if it were an old accomplishment of yours. Has Mr. Atcomb been your teacher ?" he asked. "Yes," answered Karoama, drop ping her eyes for an instant. "I wonder," said the doctor, "if he would let you take me into the Nile room and 6how me the wonders 1 have heard so much about ? You, no doubt, know them all by heart long before this time." "Oh, certainly, Karoama," answer ed Mr. Atcomb, as Karoama looked at him. "Take the doctor over. I would have asked you myself, doc tor," he said turning toward him, "but I have not forgotten how long ago you pooh-poohed my antique hobbies, as you called them. "Nonsense!" laughed the doctor, a little color coming to his face. "I was green and ignorant then. I am a much broader man to-day." So the party of four entered the Nile room. At a gentle hint from Miss Mary Mr. Atcomb fell back, allowing Ka roama to direct the doctor's atten tion here and there, which she did with little gestures, but never usine a word. "By the way, John, haven't I heard you had a mummy here ? What has become of it ?" asked the doctor, suddenly turning his full, keen gaze directly upon Karoama, at his side. It was a cruel shot and he felt it so. as he detected a tremor run over Ka roama from head to foot. "I am the villian," he thought to himself, "but I must prove my suspicions ; there seemed no better way and they are right." Not waiting for a reply, however, and as he had already forgotten the question, he casually remarked upon the very effective wall decoration, relieving Mr. Atcomb's and Miss Ma ry's embarrassment, while he inward ly repeated : "Is it true? Can I be right ? This tall, lithe.beautiful girl once a " Even to himself he hard ly dared complete the sentence. ' "Now, the portrait, that is such a marvel as I know it must be. May I see that ?" asked the doctor. "But Mies Karo is tired and we won't de lay her longer. Good-night, my dear patient," he said, in the friendliest way and looking at her with the kindest smile. "We need not recom mend a beauty sleep, but we do need a long sleep and a good appetite for our breakfast to-morrow morning." "It is indeed a beautiful picture of your very beautiful charge," exclaim ed the doctor as they entered the ante-room and stood before the por trait. "Would you object," he asked, turning abruptly toward Mr. At comb, "to give me something more definite than theso mere rumors of her history ? I have my suspicions which you can confirm in a few words, and as I value your friendship and my honor it shall go no further." Mr. Atcomb hesitated. It wae a struggle to give to a third person the secret he had so closely guarded, yet the time was coming it had come when the advice of a third person, and he a doctor and an old friend, would be invaluable. Miss Mary looked at her brother and said, with wonaa's intuitive in sight and far-sight :" "Tell him, John, it will be a relief to both of us." "What I tell' you, doctor," said Mr. Atcomb, beginning boldly, but still showing signs of hesitation, "is suspected by others but is known only to Mary and myself. This beau tiful girl has no apparent knowledge of it herself and for her sake we con sider the facts as if they were not." "Here, John, I beg leave to differ with you. There has been a dim con sciousness of the truth in Mies Ka ro's mind from the Brut ami now it btcoiiieH u fixed fact; it wears upon her imagination and aps her strengt h though this is not the only reason of her failing spirits and health," the doctor said. "May I ask you ?'' questioned Mr. Atcomb, "how long you have known this?" "Only to-niuht. John. I suw it all in a breath, but this isn't hearing your story." It was a dose and confidential talk that followed and the secret once shut within the doctor's shrewd lips left Mr. and Miss Atcomb more strengthened and relieved than they could have believed possible before its telling. "One thing in this matter I strong ly advise," said Dr. Nozome, at the close of Mr. Atcomb's recital. "Take Karoama to Egypt for the winter. Make the journey of the Nile, and further than that we cannot one of us foresee." CHAPTER XI. (JOOD-BY. A week later it was generally under stood that Mr. and Miss Atcomb, with Karoama were about to sail for a winter in Egypt. "Indeed, Kay dear," exclaimed a bevy of girls, who, with an escort of three or four young men had called to say good-bye. "We shall miss you dreadfully, not because you are with us so much but because we think so much about you. To be sure, we shall think about you when you are in Egypt, but somehow that is differ ent." "Yes." said Jennie Nozome, "George and I were wondering yesterday if you liked skating, and then there is to be a whole series of progressives and I don't know how many lunches and teas. Then next week there is our domino authors' party, and we had booked you as George says, for The Bride of the Nile.' " Karoama sat in the midst of the group listening, comprehending ap parently every word of the chatter, smiling slightly now and then, but saying nothing. "Do write me, Kay dear, won't you ? Don't you remember how I wrote you last summer after wecame back from Atcomb it is getting fash ionable to drop the 'ville' now you know and you never sent a word in reply ? Now do please answer some of those letters, won't you ?" "Yes, do write, cousin Kay," chim ed in Roger, coming into the parlor at this moment. ' Oh, Roger, I should think you w)uld say that! exclaimed prettJ Polly Pinkney, "when you are goi 1 too." i 'A "That depends," laughed Roge "whether Ira invited or not. Un cle's just been telling me he would like to have me with him, but that he don't quite know whetheritis best or not. First he decides he will take me; then he decides he won't. This seesaw wing is very pleasant for meJew Hampshire of Manchester, it ? But I've recommended nySprillgfleld P & K of Spriag- isn't self as a sort of head dragoman to the party and I may get the posi tion." "Yes, and think of the seesawing then," suggested Mr. Benson. "For pity's sake, do hear Bob Ben son trying to pun! Oh, oh, that is certainly worth a quarter," came from a new voice in the group, and they all tried to laugh. "Well, if Roger does go," said Pol ly to Karoama, "take the best care of him he firmly believes you made the world, Karo dear." Karoama dropped her eyes but made no reply. "And that reminds me, Roger, that papa said if I saw you anywhere to ask you to come into his office some time duriug oliice hours that is, of course, if you do go," said Jennie Nozome. "All right, Miss Jennie, I will call. I shall need a prescription for sea sickness, at any rate," answered Roger. "Oh, Miss Mary," said Will Homer, one of the escorts, "won't y ou let us see Miss Karo's portrait ? She won't even tell us where it is hidden." "Not hidden," corrected Miss Mary as she came into the room, "but hung in a side-room for lor safe ty," and she led the chattering troupe to the ante-room where they gazed for an instance's silence on the pic ture. "Oh, it's beautiful!" "Perfect!" "I never saw anything like it!" exclaim ed one after another. "Indeed, Kay," said Polly. "I have seen you have precisely that expres siona kind of dreamy, mildly sar castic, half-smiling dreadfully far-away-from-us look. I can't express it, yet a dear, beautiful girl all the same." "Do you remember, Kay, how last summer when we were visiting you at Atcombville'how we tried a tin type group and how we had to give it up because that old picture-taker declared he couldn't get any shadow of you, and the rest of us were just as good as I don't know what ?" (To be continued.) It Should Be In Every House. J. B. Wilson, 371 Clay St., Sharps burg, Pa., says he will not be with out Dr. King s New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds, that it cured his wife who was threat ened with Pneumonia after an attack of "La Grippe," when various other remedies and several physicians had done her no good. Robert Barber, of Cooksport, Pa., claims Dr. King's New Discovery has done him more good than anything he ever used for Lung Trouble. Nothing like it. Try it. Free Trial Bottles at U. J. Dwi nell's drug store. Large bottles, 50o. I and $1.00. When a Woman Has Constant Backache she cannot walk or stand, her duties arc heavy burdens, and she is utterly miserable. The cause is some derange ment of the uterus or womb. Dackache is the sure symptom. For years Sarah 1 Iol stein, who lives at 7 Perry St., in Lowell, Mass.. suf fered with falling of the womb. The best doctors failed to re lieve her, and as a last resort she purchased six bottles of Lydia E. Pinkhairis Vegeta ble Compound. Now she is a well woman. The dreadful pain in her back stopped after taking the second boUle. She wishes she had taken it sooner, and saved both money and years of suf fering.
