The Bureau of Census has published a report presenting mortality statistics for the United States for the five cal endar years 1900 to 1904. As shown in the table, tuberculosis of the lungs and pneumonia were by far the leading causes of death. The greatest number of deaths from lung trouble occur during the winter months Colds are so prolific of lung trouble that they should not be neg lected. Persons with weak lungs should be especially careful. A noted authority on lung trouble advises that as soon as a cold is con tracted the following simple treatment should be given. The ingredients can be .purchased from any prescription druggist at small cost and easily pre pared in your own home. It is said to "be so effective that it will break up a cold in twenty-four hours and cure any cough that is curable. Take one-half ounce Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure), two ounces of Glycerine snd eight ounces of good Whisky. Shake well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hours. Be sure that the Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure) is in the original half-ounce Tials, which are put up expressly for druggists to dispense.

"Winter has many drawbacks," said He&ry' J. Woodhouse, the noted me teorologist In Washington, "and not least of these is the winter fog thai drops down soot upon men's faces. Some day we shall dissipate this fog with electricity, but the day is dis tant." Mr.\Woodheiise smiled. -'In restaurant, on a recent foggy, aooty day, I couldn't resist leaning over and whispering to a well dressed man at the next table: a 'ExSuse me, sir, but'there's* a'speck of soot on your nose.'

The inspector was not in the best 9f tempers, and was in no mood to be trifled with. He came in rapidly, olosed the door, andvanced toward Dgledon. "Now, sir," he began, "I don't want rou to compromise yourself about this matter but business is business, and the law is the law. Touching this mat ter of Dandy Chater—this matter of murder He got no farther, as Ogledon, with i-cry, turned swiftly and made toward the door, Tokely turning, too, in his astonishment. Dr. Cripps, dimly and drunkenly realizing that his patron was in danger, caught up the nearest weapon, which happened to be a heavy decanter, and, with a shrill scream, burled himself upon the inspector and brought the decanter down with all his force upon that gentleman't head. The unfortunate officer, with a groan, dropped flat and lay motionless. For a moment or two Ogledon stood staring down at him. scarcely knowing what to do, while Cripps, mightily pleased with his performance, danced all round Tokely's prostrate form, waving the decanter and chanting a species of dirge. But, the seriousness of the position dawning rapidly upon Ogledon, he. seized Cripps by the arm, wrenched the decanter from his grasp, and buffeted him into a sense of the enormity of his offiense. "You Idiot!" he whispered, hoarsely "a pretty thing you've done now. 1 might have stood and braved the thing out there's no proof against me, and suspicions are useless. But now, after this, there's nothing for It but to make a bolt for It! I suppose It's my own fault for having anything to do with a drunken little worm like yourself. Quick! there's no time to be lost. we must clear out of this. Come!" Going to the door he listened cau tiously for a few moments, and then swiftly opened it. There was no one In sight, and he darted across the hall and cahght up his own and the doc tor's hats and coats and went back uolselessly. Tokely still lay without movement, and Oggledon dragged Cripps into his coat and crammed his shabby hat on his head, put on his own outdoor things, and prepared to leave the place. "Now, attend to me," he said to Cripps. "I shall lock this door on the Inside, and take the key with me we'll go through this window on to the terrace. If this fellow ever wakes again—of which I am extremely doubt ful—it won't be for an hour or so and that will give us a fair start. Now, come quietly. This has been a deuc edly unlucky night, and it promises to be an unlucky day. I thought myself so snfe I don't like the turn things have taken at all." Strolling quietly, until they were out of sight-of the windows of the house, the two got clear away, Ogledon keep ing a tight grip of the arm of his sway ing companion. Indeed, It Is possible that, before many hours had efapsed, the little man deeply regretted the part he had played in the recent ad venture for Ogledon walked him on, without mbrcy, mile after mile, and ^without paying the slightest attention to his many piteous entreaties to pause at seductlve-looklhg public houses for rest and refreshment. Later in the day.they came to a small station within easy distance of Lon don, and dusty weary, footsore, and Ill-tempered, Cripps was glad to get into the corner of a third-class railway carriage and fall asleep. Arrived at the terminus, Ogledon coolly announced to his companion that they must part. "I shall drive abross London, get some dinner, and catch the night express for the Conti nent. You will not, in all probability, hear from me for some time. Good by!" "But what—what is to become of me?" asked the little man, in dismay. "I'm sure I don't know and I'm equally sure I don't care," respond ed Ogledon. "You've got yourself and me Into this trouble I'm going to get out of It—you had better do the same." "But I've no money," said Cripps, ap pealingly. "Ah, you should have thought of that before knocking policemen on the head with decanters. If you will be so giddy/ and youthful, and frolicsome, you must take the consequences. Good-by, again I hope they won't catch you!" He turned and made his way out of the station. Grips saw him juiqp into, a cab and disappear In the press of traffic in the streets. Meantime, another traveler—a fugi tive like himself—had set his face in th| ,same direction, with no settled purpose in mind, ,sav,e to hide, until such a time as he. could formulate a plan of action. Not daring to trust to the railway, lest his description should have been telegraphed and men should be on the look-out for him, Philip Cha ter. had started off.to walk-to London. Comings .long aJter,jthesun: was up, Into a staggering suburb, which yet had some faint touches of the country left upon it, he sat down on a bench outaldeasmall public Jurase, ordered some bread and cheese and ale, and atajaridrfraakravenously. *W«iir be muttered to himself, With a little laugh, "yesterday was a THE SECOND DANDY CHATER By Tom Gallon. Vs busy day. We start with a burglary, and with the fact that Arthur Barn shaw has discovered me in a forgery, and—so he believes—in an attempt to steal his sister's diamond necklace. Compared with what has gone before, these things are mere trifles." He laughed again, took a pull at his beer, and shrugged his shoulders. "Let me see—what happened after that? Oh, to be sure I went round to try and have a word with old Bet ty. I hated the thought that she— dear little mother of the old days— should think so badly of me. I felt that I could trust her to keep my se cret if necessary. Then, after waiting about for a long time, that girl—Clara, Harry called her—came out to tell me that the strangeman I had seen through the window was from London, and probably held a warrant for my arrest. And then that jealous idiot, Harry, must jump in, and come scour ing over the country after men, with the policeman in tow. Well, I got away that time, at all events." He sat for some time, with a mus ing smile upon his face, stirring the dust at his feet with the toe of his boot. At the moment he had clean forgotten the danger which threatened him or the necessity for further flight. "Dear little mother!" he whispered, "how glad she was to see me—how glad to know that her boy had come back again. I'm glad I went back to the place after the policeman gave up the chase as hopeless. Heigho, I sup pose I must be moving Halloa, what the dickens do you want?" Some one had stopped before him, some one with remarkably old and broken boots. Raising his eyes rapid ly upward to the face of the owner of the boots, Philip Chater gave a start of surprise and dismay. The Shady 'Un, looking a little more disreputable than usual, stood before him. Going rapidly over in his mind the events of the past few days, Philip Chater tried to discover, in the few moments the Shady 'Un stood silently regarding him, whether or not he was to look upon that Interesting gentle man as a friend or as a foe. Remem being the two encounters with Capt. Peter Quist—the scene in the upper room at "The Three Watermen" and the unwarrantable liberty taken with the Shady "Un's headgear on that oc casion for the extinguishing of the licht—Philip decided that J.he man had reason to be resentful. Accord ingly, he waited for an attack, verbal or otherwise. But the Shady 'Un, for some reason of his own, was disposed to be friend ly feeling, perhaps, a certain warm ing of his heart toward one in mis fortune—a brother in criminality, as it were—he turned a smiling face to ward Philip Chater and held out his hand. "This 'ere is the 'and of a pal—an 'umble pal, if yer like, but still a pal. Strike me pink!" exclaimed the Shady 'Un, in a sort of hoarse whisper, "but w'en it comes ter bread and cheese fer swells like Dandy, what are we a-com in' to, I would ask"—he flung out one grimy hand in an appeal to the uni verse—"I would ask what are we bloomln' well comin' to?" "Yes, it looks bad, doesn't it?" re- ,:fd Philip, still with a wary eye upon nie other. "But one must take what the gods send, eh?" "Well, they sends me a dry throat, an' nothing to wet It with/' said the Shady 'Un, dismally eyeing the beer which stood on the bench beside Phil ip, with a thirsty tongue rolling round his lips. "Well, I daresay we can. remedy that," responded Philip. "Go inside and get what you want, and bring it out here I should like to talk to you." The Shady 'Un immediately van ished through the doorway, and was heard Inside explaining that his "guv'nor" would pay "the damage." In a few moments he emerged, bearing a tankard and some bread and cheese seated himself on the bench, and fell to with an appetite. He disposed of his breakfast—if one may so describe it—at an aston !"ljlng rate, wiped his pocket knife on his leg, and looked round, with a smirk, which was probably intended as an expression of gratitude, at Philip. "Tork away, guv'nor," he said, with a glance toward the open door of the house. "First,"' said Philip, "tell me hbw you come to be here." "They took me, at the last moment, for that 'ere little Job at Bamberton— the Job of the diamonds. You was in that, Dandy—wasn't yer?" "Oh, yes—I was in it," replied Phil ip. "So I suppose that you—like my self—are making your way toward London?" The other nodded. ^'"The word was passed for us to scatter an' I've bin a-scatterln' all the bloomln' nlght-yl 'ave. I must 'ave bin close on yer '^els most of- tits time, Dandy." There was a long end somewhat awkward silence between the two. Philip was dehatigg ln itia mind as to how much to tell, the Shady 'Un and ,, how much to leave unsaid. TTie Bfraa/ lllggl 1 itVii: r~T *$JkJ 'Un, for his part, having heard gather ing rumors of that business in the wood, eyed his companion somewhat stealthily, and worked out a plan of action In his own fertile brain. He brol'-« silence at last, by coming at the matier in what he thought a highly diplomatic manner. "Beastly noosance—gals," he said, staring hard before him. "What do you mean?" asked Philip, glancing at him in some perplexity. The Shady 'Un drew a deep breath and shook his head. "There you go!" he exclaimed, with considerable dis gust. "No confidence, no trust, no confidin' spirit about yer! Didn't say, a week ago, as yer might come ter the Shady 'Un wiv a open 'eart an* 'and that 'e was the friend, if evet the Count should fail yer? Strike me pink!" cried the Shady 'Un, with much earnestness, "did I say them words, oi did I not?" "I believe you said something of the kind," replied Philip, after a moment's pause. "Course I did," said the Shady 'Un, energetically. "An' wot I says 1 sticks to. They call me the Shady 'Un but. 1 was c'ristened 'Shad rach,' an' 'ad a faver of the name ot Nottidge. The Shady 'Un may not be all as 'e should be but Shadrach Nottidge is a p&l, an' a friend. Dandy, my boy, there's 'emp-seed sowed for you, an' well you knows it." There seemed so much sincerity about the man, and Philip was so des perately in need of assistance at that time, that he resolved to confide in him. After all,*he thought, the man knew the worst, and knew in how many other shady transactions Dandy Chater had been mixed up to con firm his friendship would, perhaps, af ter all, be a matter of policy. "Well, then, understand this," he said, abruptly. "I'm flying for my life. There's a warrant out against me for murder." The Shady 'Un nodded, comfortably. "I know, I know," lie said. "Young gal, very much in the way you 'its her a clump, say by axerdent she don't like it, an' just to spite yer goes dead. Lor', that ain't nothing might 'appen to a man any day. But I sup pose the splits is out, an' Dandy must make 'isself scarce?" "Yes that's about it," raplied Philip. The Shady 'Un got up and shook himself with an air of resolution. "It's a lucky thing I come acrost ye so 'andy," he said. "You'd 'ave got nabbed in no time. The Shady 'Un's yer pal stick to 'im an' all will be well." In his desperate extremity Philip made up his mind to trust the man. By strange courts and alleys, and by unfrequented thoroughfares, they came at last to a wretched lodging in the neighborhood of the borough—a lodging which appeared to be the pri vate retreat of the Shady 'Un in his hours of leisure. There Philip Chater, utterly worn out, was glad to fling himself on a wretched bed and fall asleep instantly. For some minutes after he had be gun to slumber the other man stood looking down upon him with an evil smile crossing his face he even shook his fist at him once, bringing it so near to the sleeper's head that it was a matter for wonder that he did not actually hit him.
