NEWS AND CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1901. His Brother's Keeper By REV. CHARLES M. SHELDON ontinU'd "Why do you say that, Louise? You know I am thinking of the poor fami lies who are beginning to suffer at this time. Surely we ought to do as much for them as for ourselves. If we spend a hundred dollars to decorate the rooms with flowers for a party, we ought to give twice as much to help feed the hungry. The better way Would be to take the money spent on the flowers and spend it on food." "What!" cried Louise angrily. "On the people who have brought their con dition on themselves by their own fool ishness! Who is to blame for their being hungry and cold if not them selves?" "The women and babies are not to blame, and they are the ones to feel the suffering most," said Stuart quiet ly. "Well, you can use your money that way if you want to, but I don't waste mine on people who don't know when they're well off." Stuart rose and stood with his back to the fire. He was agitated with all the new ideas that bad crowded into his life since the day God had spoken to Lim. He felt that the revolution in him Would cut square across all the tradi tions and usages of polite society, espe cially in the matter of money and its personal expenditure. Finally Loxiise and Aunt Royal took tip the subject of the coming party and began discussing t&e families who Were invited. Stuart still stood silently engrossed In his own thoughts and hearing only now and then a word. At last he was roused by Louise. "Stuart, will you sing with Una next Week? You remember that duo you sang before you went abroad?" "Yes; I'll sing if I am here that even ing," replied Stuart, with a feeling that be was fast losing all 1:1s interest in the things that once amused him. He had a splendid baritone voice and was a fa vorite singer with all his friends. " "Why. are you planning to be away?" "Xo; 1 did not know what might bappen under the condition of the strike and all." "We've Invited the Meltons and the Vasplaines. They would be very much disappointed If you weru not here," said Aunt Royal. "I shall probably be here," said Stu art briefly. Louise rose suddenly and went up to her brother. "And I Invited MIsa Dwlght, Stuart. She refused to come, but don't you think I am too aristocratic for any thing to invite her?" Stuart looked at Louise In astonish ment. The words sent the color to his cheek and set his pulses beating. "You knew she would not come," he tsaid in a low voice. Louise started as If 6he had been caught In her lie to Rhena. She went back to her seat and was silent. It Was at times a mad freak with Louise to say or do the unexpected thing. She Was not original, but she sometimes took a malicious pleasure in startling people. "I am glad she refused," said Aunt Itoyal, who sometimes forgot her diplo macy in her gratification at things. "She certainly would have felt very tnuch out of place among us." "Yes, that's so," said Stuart, provok ed into a statement he could easily have made before his conversion. "She W'ould have been out of place among your other guests because most of them are uneducated boors and clowns In comparison with a lady like Miss Dwlght." Aunt Royal was speechless. She could not liud anything to say at first. Finally she began in her usual gentle Voice: "I aui surprised, Stuart, to hear you Speak that way of a common Salvation .Army"- . ' That was as far as Aunt Royal could get. Stuart interrupted with an em phasis that petrified both the women: "I will not allow you or any one to Speak a disrespectful word of the wo man I love and who, If God Is good enough to me, will some time become my wife!" With the words Stuart walked out ot the room, leaving his aunt and Louise gasping as if a pail of ice wa ter had been thrown over them. And What they said when they recovered liistory saith not, and Stuart never knew nor cared. He went, away to his room and sat there without turning on the lights. He knew that he had precipitated mat ters In the home by his brief but out tight declaration of his purpose. lie did not regret it, but he was a little afraid he m shown the un-Chrlstian Spirit in hi words or manner. The old Adam had n place in hiin yet? No, he said to himself; he was a new man The very best evidence of it was lis present action. He knelt and prayed to le forgiven If he had spoken wrongly He was still praying when a servant ijronglit word that he was wanted at the telephone. lie went down and was Informed by the clerk in the offlce that two of the miners had come in, and, acting under Instructions, the clerk had called up Stuart to come and see them. Stuart told the clerk to hold the men until he could get down. lie went out at once and drove Into the town. ' The men who had come to the ofllce Were residents of Cornlslitown. They bad come for help In a case not their own, but that of a miner who lay sick and in need at the farthest limits of the settlement. Stuart hastily loaded his cutter with necessaries, and with one of the men to direct the way he started out. The night was dark, and a fine snow was falling. The drifts were piled high on cither side of the road. Stuart knew he could drive only part of the way. As he went by the Salvation Army hall he stopiwd a minute to speak to one of the men standing on the steps. The hall was lighted, but there was no meeting going on. "Miss Dwlght went up to Cornish town this afternoon with some clothes to distribute and is not yet back," the man said In answer to a question of Stuart's. He drove on with a great feeling of uneasiness at his heart. He recalled Andrew's words about the abandoned pits and prospecting holes all about Cornishtown and on the side hills. The thought that Rhena might be in peril there quickened the stir of his blood. He drove his horse with a reckless dis regard of the speed or the danger. The miner who was with him in speaking of It afterward said, "Tell you, boys, I thought most I was with the doctor, and I kept saying my little prayer, as everybody .does who rides with him." When they reached the limit of the road, Stuart left the horse and cutter in a shed behind one of the cottages. The people in the cottage there had seen Miss Dwlght come up that after noon. She had stopped a minute to warm herself and then gone on. When Stuart reached the house at the end of the miners' path, It was snowing furiously. Rhena had been there before him. She had left her bundle of clothing, and that was the last that any one had seen of her. Stuart rushed out of the miserable cabin and down the path to the next cottage of the settlement. Nothing had been seen of Rhena on her sup posed return to town. She could not have passed the two men on their way up. Stuart stood in the little path lis tening, with his heart trembling. The great pines sobbed under the rising wind. I'ar below the lights of Cham pion gleamed here and there through the falling snow. And never had Stu art Duncan loved Rhena Dwlght as at this moment, when the terror of the fear possessed and choked him that she had wandered out into the treacherous pits and was perhaps even now lying at the bottom of one of them dead or dying. He prayed as he stood there, "My God, my God, save her, for I lov her more than my life!" CHAPTER VIII. COMPLICATIONS. Stuart had known every foot of Cor nishtown as a boy and was familiar even now with most of the curious lit tle lanes and paths that cut it across and tracked up and down the side of the great hill like the marking of some gigantic game. There was probably no other place just like it In America. The prospecting holes were of various depths. Some of them had caved in at the sides and were shaped like old cel lars or cisterns with masses of rub bish at the bottom. Others were wells, anywhere from 50 to 100 feet deep. and especially dangerous in winter. when the snow, lodging on bushes rowing about the shaft's mouth, art fully concealed the locality of danger. It was Stuart's first thought when he calmed himself to think and act that Rht 11:1 had attempted to make a short cut by one of the miners' paths from the r.pper part of the settlement of Cornishtown to Champion and In the dark and conf-ision caused bv the change which snow makes in the ap pearance of old landmarks had stum bled into one of the shafts. Under this conviction he ran back to the house where Rhena had been and from, which lie had just come himself, and, begging a lantern, he started out on a path which at first In his terror he had for gotten. He had followed it but a little way when the lantern revealed a small black object right In the center of the path, lie stooped eagerly and picked It up. It was a lady's winter glove trimmed with fur at the wrist. He recognized It as Rhena's. He had seen her wearing that kind of a glove a few days before. He placed it In his pocket and went on as fast as ho dared, eager and yet dreading with a honor he nev er filt before the possible discoveries he might make. The miner who had come up with him had gone down to the settlement at Stuart's suggestion to rouse others to come out and join In the search. So he was alune up there In the mysterious shadows of the pine covered slope. Every step he took over the small, Imrely defined trail was Ilka a step int an unknown land, and yet he was conscious, even as he dwelt with terror upon the Btrange adventure so suddenly thrust upon hlin, of going over that very path one warm summer day when a boy only 10 years old, and the smell of the balsams as they gave out their peculiar pungent odor in the warmth of the sun seemed to be In his senses now. Several persons had evl deutly been over the path that very day, for the snow was trodden down, and the marks of feet were not yet wholly covered by new snow. Quite a long distance from the place where the glove was found Stuart came to an old stump which marked a giant pine of many years before. The pnta turned about the foot of this stump, and on the other side of it as he strode up, praying In his heart for mercy and safety to be shown this woman, ho saw her lying so still and white that he dared not think what It might mean. She had fallen over a mass of ore that had rolled Into the path, and one hand and arm lay stretched out directly over one of the most dangerous pits on the hill. 60 near had she been to Instant death! With a cry Stuart caught her up Still, he dared not question whether what he held was alive or dead. He said to himself he would not ask. He knew she was not conscious. lie moved now with more of Instinct than hy sight or reason, feeling his way down the hill. lie seemed to feel confident that he would not falV Into any of the shafts jvltb this burden, and with a strength and purpose that moved Lira with even more than his usual determi nation he went on down, keeping be fore him the glimmering light of the nearest cottage. Finally he had reach ed a cross path to the one he had first entered and in which Rhena had met with her accident. The light from the cottage had disappeared. He was now In a hollow or depression of the slope which had sometimes been used by the miners for a rough roadway to one part of the Davis mine, and as be entered It he thought that he could feel rather than see that tracks had recently been made through the hollow. He went down very cautiously. Rhena was still unconscious. Suddenly a sound came to Stuart from above. He stopped and listened It was the sound of slelghbells. He could not trust his hearing and listened He saw her lying so still and white. more Intently. Yes, that was too com mon a sound in Champion every winf " to be mistaken. As he listened ami looked up into the opaque space filled with snow which fell straight down la the hollow where the wind was cut off a horse emerged like a great shadow and a vague rough outline of some thing behind. Stuart shouted, and the next instant he knew that there was only one man in all Champion or De Mott, or for that matter In the entire range, who would dare drive up or down Cornishtown hollow to Davis hill at night and la winter. It was Dr. Saxon, and he had been out to see Jim Biuney apd takeu the old road up the hollow to save time. It was a common saying in Champion that the doctor would calm ly have taken a short cut through the Infernal regions rather than go around, especially if there was a patient in great danger on the other side. ' . I'he horse was like his master and could pick his way over the bills 'find through the rough trails like a moun tain gout. He had a great gift for get ting through snowdrifts, and one of the miners said that he once saw the doc tor's horse help his master right the cutter when it tipped over by sitting down on the shaft that was upper most, while the doctor pushed on the other side. Certain It is that never did a lighthouse gleam on a lost mar iner with its saving light more Joy fully than did the familiar horse and cutter appear to Stuart as they plung ed right out of a great hole and tum bled down almost over him as he stood there holding his precious burden. "Whoa! Steady there. Ajax!" cried me voice or the doctor from the cut ter, which bounded out of the hole all right and came to sight again, like a tnowplow on an engine Just after plunging out of a drift. "Doctor!" cried Stuart. "Thank God! Quick! Miss Dwlght! She is dead or dying! I found her uncon scious on the upper trail!" He crowded through the snow up to the side of the cutter and placed Rhe na on the scat beside the astonished doctor. "Well, well, If this doesn't beat the Salvation Army drum all to pieces! I can't escape from practice even In Cornishtown hollow. You take the prize for furnishing material on the spot. Are there auy more of the anhy dead or wounded or dying around here?" "Hurry, doctor! Save her! Say, Is she dying? Is she seriously hurt?" "Humph! Well, I tell you, Stuart, she's a plucky lass, and It's ten to one that she's dangerously hurt. No; she's not dead." All this time the doctor, who never wasted any breath talking and doing nothing, had been examining the condition of Rhena. "We'll get her right down to the town as fast as possi ble. Come, jump In and hold her. I can't drive and tend to her too." Stuart did as directed, and the horse lunged forward at the doctor's word. It seemed to Stuart that the doctor was mad to drive at such a pace. "Do be careful, doctor! You'll kill us all! Go slower!" Stuart gasped as be held Rhena and breathlessly braced himself against the back of the cutter, "You've got your hands full without driving," was all the satisfaction Stu art could get, and before he could utter much more remonstrance they were out of the dangerous part of the hoi low and had struck into the beginning of the road that led down to Champion. From that point the two men did not speak until the doctor reined Ajax up In front of Rhena s lodging. He had chosen to go right on Instead of stop ping at any of the cottages where the accommodations for help were so mea ger. The doctor carried Rhena Into lier room and left Stuart outside with the cutter. When Saxon finally came out, he was nblo to bring Stuart good news. It was a case of unconscious ness from a bad fall, but he did not fear any serious consequences. They were standing by the cutter talking together, when one of the worn en looked from the door and called the doctor. "Oh, doctor, will you see If Miss Dwight's glove is out there anywhere? She's lost one of them." "Shake that robe, Stuart" said the doctor as he flashed the lantern around on the sidewalk and about the cutter. "Like as not It's down in the bottom somewhere. Don't you find It?" he asked, not noticing what Stuart wa:; doing. Getting no answer, he shouted back: "It's not here, ma'am! Musi have dropped It on the way down." The woman shut the door, and the doc tor said, "Get in, Stuart, and I'll take you home." Stuart climbed Into the cutter with out a word. As the doctor seated him self and Ajax was about to make his usual wild plunge up the street Stu art said, "I have Miss Dwight's glove in my pocket, doctor, and I am going to keep it." "What's that!" exclaimed the doc tor. He was nearly twice Stuart's age and had known him all his life. Stu art did not know any one to whom he felt like telling bis secret more than to the doctor. "But what's the good of one glove, Stuart?" The doctor was not quite sure that Stuart wanted to tell him all. "I mean to have them both," replied Stuart frankly, looking right Into the doctor's face. "Old friend, can't you see that I am In love with her and at the very highest point of my life al ready because of It?" Stuart spoke louder than he had meant to, forgetting that persons were passing along the sidewalk. Several of the Salvation Army people had gone up to Rhena's lodgings to Inquire about her. It Is not probable that any heard Stuart, but the doctor suddenly struck Ajax, and the cutter whirled into the square and darted across one of the diagonals. Close by the band stand the doctor pulled up as suddenly as he had started and said abruptly, "I'll wait for you." "Wait for what?" exclaimed Stuart astonished. "Why. I thought may be you might want to go up into the stand and tell all Champion that you were in love with Miss Dwlght." Stuart laughed softly. "I am not ashamed of It. Indeed, doctor, 1 do feel like shouting It out at times. No. no!" he added as the doctor started Ajax on again and they came out into the main street. "It Is a matter of great pride with me. And at the same time I shrink from making it too com mon. There is no danger. Doctor, will you say, 'God bless you. Stuart.' as you used to sometimes when other events In my life came on?" "God bless you, Stuart! Aye, aye, 'that belongs to be,' as my Cornlshmen say when they mean it ought to be so. You've chosen the best, pluckiest and most character endowed woman In all Champion, or the state for that mat ter. Well, well, I knew it all the time! You and Eric think I'm so busy that I don't have time to notice anything. But that's because I see so much more than you do In a given time." There was a short pause. "If I were you, Stuart, I wouldn't keep that glove very long. It Isn't Just fair this cold weath er." "Thank you, doctor. I have been thinking of that." replied Stuart. He had grown very thoughtful sud denly. His life had opened out Into another possibility with this new expe rience. He was conscious of Its bear Hng upon all the rest of the problems that knocked at his heart and mind for answers, and when he bade the doctor good night he went Into the house thrilled thscugh with the most profound conviction and persuasion that his life would shape this way or that according to the response of Rhe na Dwight's soul to his. lie was star tled as for the first time he realized how strong his feeling was and how little he knew of hers. What could she be to him with all the social differ ence between them? It Is true he had come to a place where social differ ences counted for very little with him, but how could he tell -what she might think now that her life moved on the plane of Salvation Army methods? And then there was his money anil all. She had deliberately moved out from tl:e world of wealth and fashion in which he still remained, of which he was yet a part. They were separated in this way by a great gulf of difference, Cn the other hand, he reflected, they had one great and common bend of sympa thy in their Christian faith. After all. was not that stronger than anything else? What were conditions or artifi cial social distinctions by the side of the all powerful oneness of spirit which disciples of the Master possess ed in common? It was with that last thought on his heart that he finally went to rest. He did not speak to Louise or his aunt of the evening's adventure when he saw them in the morning. His statement of the evening before con cerning his feelings toward Rhena had driven the two women into a posmou of hostility to him that did not find 1m mediate expression In words, but was very apparent none the less. Louise was angry to thluk that her attempts to deceive Rhena might and probably would result In nothing. Aunt Royal Ignored the subject definitely, but there was no mistaking her entire opposition to Stnnrt's nresent attitude. It was true she did not understand him. Stu art was too engrossed In his porplexl ties and plans and too much absorbed In the new life to feel all this very deeply, and yet it showed him how squarely his new life was henceforth to conflict with the old.

Recently there have been several cases of prominent men suddenly falling ia collapse just after eating a hearty meal. These men have all been under treat ment for gastric "trouble," and yet the result shows that the treatment they had received had smothered the symptoms but had not retarded the progress of they disease. There is a real danger in the use of palliatives when there is disease of the stomach and its allied organs of diges tion and nutrition. The disease in such cases goes on, while the distressing symptoms alone are stopped. Presently, like a smotnereu fire, the disease breaks out in new places, in volving heart, lungs, liver, kid neys, or some other organ. The use of Ir. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov ery results in a radical cure of diseases of the stomach and oth er organs of di gestion and nutrition. It cures diseases ot heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc., when the disease of these organs has its origin in the diseased condition of the stomach and digestive and nutritive system. "I will tell vou what myself and family think of your medicine," writes Mr. M. M. Wardwell, ol Linwood., Leavenwortn Co., Kansas. "It will do all you say. and more. I was taken sick nine years ago; I got so weak I couldn't lie down, nor hardly ait up; was that way two or three months. I picked up one of Dr. Pierce's Memorandum Books one day and saw your de scription of catarrh of the stomach. I thought it hit my case. We had a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery In the house that was got for my mother. You recommend it for catarrh of the stomach, so I went to taking it. The one bottle nearly cured me. I got two bottles next time and took one and one-half ad was well. Your medicine cost me three dollars and the doctor dost me f 'teen dollars.
