Why Liquid Kidney
Remedies Fail.
Alcohol Neutralizes All
Effects of Drugs.
Kidney-Wort Tablets Cure-Contain
No Alcohol.
PleDty of people know that alcohol is
the worst thing they can take when
their kidneys are disordered, yet they
swallow large quanities of the cheapest
possible alcohol without being aware
of it when they take liquid kidney
remedies. .
Alcohol is used in large proportion
in liquid kidney remedies to enable
them to keep.
Besides the direct harm to the kid
neys from alcohol, any good effect the
remedy mav have is neutralized, mak
ing the liquid kidney remedy useless
and harmful.
The following letter from E. M.
Montague who had tried two of these
liquid kidney remedies and received
no benefit, and who then took Kidney
Wort Tablets, a specific for the kidneys
that contain no alcohol, shows the
inestimable superiority of a kidney
remedy that requires no alcohol over
those that will not keep without it:
Lowell, Fla., April 8, 190a
Wells & Richardson Co.,
Gentlemen : I have used four bottles
of Dr. Pettingill's Kidney-Wort Tab
lets, and can positively say that the
Tablets have been a decided help to
me. Mine is an old case that two
physicians prescribed for without any
good results, and two popular remedies
failed entirely to relieve. The tablets
have diminished the quantity of urine
one-half, and there is no sediment, or
very little that I can see. Formerly I
had to be up from six to eight times
at night, but now I enjoy undisturbed
sleep. Very truly yours,
E. M. Montague.
Many a business man sitting at his
desk is seized with a sharp pain that
nearly doubles him up. He has to break
off conversation and rush to the urinal
for relief. Only a few trickling drops
with some red sandy sediment rewards
his efforts, and that scalds him as it
passes. The remedy that exactly fits
such a case is Dr. Pettingill's Kidney
Wort Tablets. The specific will cure
the worst cases of "gravel" or "stone"
and put the kidneys into a healthy,
normal condition, so that there will be
no recurrence of the trouble.
Dr. Pettingill's Kidney-Wort Tablets
will cure every form of kidney disease.
This test tells :
v Let your morning urine stand for
twenty-four hours in a glass. Then if
it is milkv or cloudy or contains ' a
reddish, 'brick-dust sediment or if
particles or germs float about in it,
your kidneys are diseased, and you
need Kidney-Wort Tablets.

(CHAPTER VII, Continued.)
Was this tbo lum total of all bis
wis determinations made at the cost
of so much pain and effort? Was this
tba answer to all his prayer, "Lead
me not Into temptation?" lie bud done
his part, for he had done all be could.
Heaven had not helped him, since here
was temptation thrust upon blm when
least expected and when the way was
so narrow be could not escape, but
must meet lt face to face.
Mary soon recovered her self posses
sionwomen are better skilled In this
art than men and continued:
"I am not intending to sny one word
about your treatment of me tliat day
over In the forest, althougn it was very
bad and you have acted abominably
ever since. Now is not that kind In
me?" And she softly laughed as she
nwnerl ud at the Door fellow from be
neath those sweeping lashes, with the
premeditated purpose or tantalizing
him.' I suDDose. She was beginning to
know her power over him, and lt was
never greater than at tnis moment.
Tier beaurv had its sweetest quality,
for the princess was sunk and the
woman was dominant, with nusnea
tarn nnd fliishinz eves that caught a
double luster from the glowing love
that made her Deart neat so rust.
With tha mood that was uoon her I
wonder Brandon maintained his self
restraint even for a moment He felt
that his nnlv hoDe lav in silence, so be
sat beside her and said nothing. He
told me long afterward that while slt
tinir there in the intervals between her
speech, the oddest, wildest thoughts ran
through his brain. He woiulereu now
be could escape. He thought of the
window and that possibly he might
break away through it, and then he
thought of fplirninir illness, and a hun
dred other absurd schemes, but they
all came to nothing, and he sat tnere
to lot ovpnts take their own course, as
they seemed determined to do in spite
of him.
After a short silence Mary continued
half banterlngly: "Answer me, sirl I
will have no more of this. You snail
treat me at least with the courtesy you
would show a bourgeolse girl."
Ob, that you were only a ourgner s
daughter!"
"Yes, I know all that; but I am not.
It can't be helped, and you shall an
swer me."
"Thpre is no answer, dear lady. I
beg you oh, do you not see"
"Yoa vps: hat answer my ouestion.
Am I not kind, more than you de
serve?
"inrtppd. ves: a thousand times. Tou
have always been so kind, so gracious
and so condescending to me that I can
only thank you, thauk you, thank you,"
answered Brandon almost shyly, not
daring to lift his eyes to heTS.
Mnrv anw the manner quickly enough
what woman ever missed it, much
ic sn Uppn pved a eirl as she and lt
gave her confidence und brought back
the easy banter of ber old time man
ner.
"How modest we have become!
Where is the boldness of which we
used to have so much? Kind? Have
I always been so? How about the first
time I met you? Was I kind then?
And as to condescension, don't don't
use that word between, us."
"No," returned Brandon, who In bis
turn was recovering himself; "no, 1
can't say that you were very kind at
first. How you did fly out at me and
surprise me! It was so unexpected it
almost took me off my feet." And they
both laughed In remembering the scene
of their first meeting. "No, I can't say
your kindness showed Itself very
strongly in that first interview, but
It was there nevertheless, and when
Lady Jane led me back your real na
ture asserted itself, as it always does,
and you were kind to me kind as only
you can be." '
-That was getting very near to the
sentimental dangerously near, he
thought, and he said to himself, "If
this does not end quickly, I shall have
to escape."
"You are easily satisfied if you call
that good," laughingly returned Mary.
"I can be ever so much better than
that if I try."
"Let me see you try," said Brandon.
"Why, I'm trying now," answered
Mary, with a distracting little pout
"Don't you know genuine out and out
goodness when you see It? I'm doing
my very best now. Can't you tell?"
"Yes, I think I recognize it but but
be bad again."
"No, I won't! I will not be bad even
to please you. I have determined not
to be bad, and I will not not even to
be good. This," placing her hand over
her heart "is Just full of 'good' today."
And her Hps parted as she laughed at
her own pleasantry.
"I am afraid you bad better be bad.
I give you fair warning," said Brandon
huskily. He felt her eyes upon him all
the time, and his strength and good
resolves were oozing out like wine from
an ill coopered cask. After a short si
lence Mary continued, regardless of the
warning:
"But the position is reversed with us.
At first I was unkind to you, and you
were kind to me, but now I am kind to
you, and you are unkind to me."
"I can come back at you with your
own word 8," responded Brandon. "You
don't know when I am kind to yon. I
should be kinder, to myself at least
were I to leave you and take myself to
the other side of the world."
"Oh, that is one thing I wanted to
ask you about Jane tells me yoa are
going to New Spain."
She was anxious to know, but asked
the question partly to turn the conver
sation, which was fast becoming peril
oa. As girl she loved Brandon and
uiej wi.NiJrmiu wuiin ,
knew It only too well, but ! knew
also that she was a princess, standing
next to the throne of tbo greatest king
dom on earth-In fact, at that time the
heir apparent, Henry having no chil
dren, for tbo people would not have the
Scotch king's Imp, and the possibility
of such a thing as a union with Bran
don bad never entered her bead, how
ever passionate her feelings toward
him. It was not to be thought of be
tween people so far apart as tbey.
Brandon answered ber question: "I
do not know about going. I think I
shall. I have volunteered with a ship
that sails In two or three weeks from
Bristol, and I suppose I shall go."
"Oh, nol Do you really mean it?" It
gave ber a pang to hear tbat be was
actuully going, and her love pulsed
higher, but she also felt a sense of re
lief, somewhat as a conscientious
housebreaker might feel upon finding
the door securely locked against him.
It would take away a temptation
which she could not resist and yet
dared not yield to much longer.
I think there is no doubt tnat i
mean it," replied Brandon. "I should
like to reninln In Englnnd until I can
save money enough out of the king's
allowance to pay the debt against my
father's estate, so that I moy be able
to go away and feel that my brother
and sisters are secure in their home
my brother is not strong but I know
it Is better for mo to go now, and I
hope to find the money out there. I
could have paid lt with what I lost to
Judson before I discovered him cheat
ing." This was the first time he had
ever alluded to the duel, and the
thought of It, In Mary's mind, added a
faint touch of fear to her feeling to
ward him.
She looked up with a light In hereyea
and asked: "What is the debt? How
"Heaven help met" he cried.
much? Let me give you the money. I
have so much more than I need. Let
me pay lt. Tlease tell me how much
lt is, and I will hand lt to you. You
can come to my rooms and get it or I
will send it to you. Now tell me that
I may. Quickly!" And she was alive
with enthusiastic interest
"There, now, you are kind again, as
kind as even you can be. Be sure, I
thank you, though I ssy it only once,"
and he looked Into her eyes with a
gaze she could not stand even for an
instant This was growing dangerous
again; so, catching himself, he turned
the conversation back into the banter
ing vein.
"Ah, you want to pay the debt that
I may have no excuse to remain? Is
that it? Perhaps you are not so kind
after all."
"No, no; you know better. But let
me pay the debt How much is it, and
to whom is it owing? Tell me at once,
I comuinud you."
"No, no. Lady Mary; I cannot."
"Please do. I beg, if I cannot com
mand. Now I know you will. Yon
would not make me beg twice for any
thing?" She drew closer to him as she
spoke and put ber hand coaxingly upon
his arm. With nn irresistible impulse
he took the hand In his and lifted it to
l his lips In a lingering caress that could
not be mistaken. It was all so quicK
and so full of fire and meaning that
Mnry took fright, and the princess for
the moment came uppermost.
"Master Brandon!" she exclaimed
sharply and drew away her hand. Bran
don dropped the hand and moved over
on the seat He did not speak, but
turned his face from her and looked
out of the window toward the river.
Thus they sat In silence, Brandon's
hand resting listlessly upon the cush
ion between them. Mary saw the elo
quent movement away from ber and
his Bpeaking ittitude with averted face;
then the princess went into eclipse, and
the imperial woman was ascendant
once more. She looked at him for a
brief space with softening eyes and,
lifting her band, put it back in his, say
ing: "There tt is again If you want it"
Want lt? Ah, this was too much!
The band would not satisfy now. It
must be all, alll And he caught her to
his arms with a violence tbat fright
ened her.
"Please don't; please! Not this time!
Ah, have mercy, Charl- Well! There!
There! Mary mother, forgive me!"
Then her woman spirit fell before the
whirlwind of his passion, and she was
on his breast, with her white arms
around his neck, paying the same trib
ute to the little blind god tbat he would
have exacted from the lowliest maiden
of the land.
Brandon held the girl for a moment
or two, then fell upon his knees and
buried bis face In ber lap.
"Heaven help me!" he cried.
Sbe pushed the hair back from his
forehead with her hand and as sbe
fondled the curls leaned over him and
softly whispered:
"Heaven help ua both, for I love
yon!"
He sprang to his feet "Don't! Don't
I pray you." be said wildly, and almost
ran from her.
Mary followed him nearly to the door
sjf the room, but when he turned he
saw tbat she had stopped and was
standing with ber hands over ber face,
as if in tear.
He went back to her and said, "I
tried to avoid this, and If yoa bad
helped me lt would never" But he
remembered bow he bad always de
spised Adam for throwing the blame
upon Eve, no matter bow much she
may have deserved tt, and continued:
I vutvtv nirimmrim FRIDAY. v MAY 15, 1903.
-Nk I da not mean that. U is an
mj fault I should have gon away
long ago. I could sot help It I tried,
oh, I tried!"
Mary's eyes were bent upon the
floor, and tears were falling over her
Bushed cheeks unheeded and uncheefc
ed.
"There la no fault In any one. Nei
ther could I help lt," she murmured.
"No, no; lt Is not tbat there Is any
fault In the ordinary sense. It la like
ulctde or any other great self Inflicted
Injury with me. I am different from
other men. I shall never recover."
"I know only too well that you are
different from other men, and and I,
too, am different from other women.
Am I not?"
"Ah, different! There la no other
woman In all this wide, long world."
And they were In each other's arms
again. She turned ber shoulder to
him and rested with the support of his
arms about ber.. Her eyes were cast
down In silence, and sbe was evident
ly thinking as she toyed with the lace
of his doublet. Brandon knew ber
! varying expressions so well tbat he
saw there was something wanting,
so
he asked:
"Is there something you wish
to
say?"
"Not I," she responded with em
' pbasls on the pronoun.
! "Then it is something you wish me
I to say?"
She nodded her head slowly, "Yes."
"What is It? Tell me, and I will say
it"
I She shook her head slowly, "No."
"What Is it? I cannot guess."
"Did you not like to bear me say that
; that I-loved you?"
"Ah, yes! You know lt But oh!
do you wish to hear me say lt?"
The hcud" nodded rapidly two or
three times, "Yes." And the black
curving lashes were lifted for a fleet
ing, luminous Instant
"It is surely not necessary. You
have known It so long already, but I
am only too glad to say It I love you."
Sbe nestled closer to him and hid ber
face on his br ist.
"Now that I have said It what is my
reward?" be asked, and the fair face
came up, red and rosy, with "rewards,"
any one of which was worth a king's
ransom.
"But this is worse than insanity,"
cried Brandon as he almost pushed her
from him. "We can never belong to
each other. Never!"
"No," suid Mary, with a despairing
shake of the head, as the tears began
to flow again. "No, never!" And fall
ing upon bis knees be caught both ber
hands in his, sprang to bis feet and
ran from the room.
Her words showed him the chasm
anew. She saw the distance between
them even better than be. Evidently
it seemed farther looking down than
looking up. There was nothing left
now but flight
He sought refuge in his own spart
ments and wildly walked the floor, ex
claiming: "Fool, fool that I am to lay
up this store of agony to Inst me all
my days! Why did I ever come to this
court? God pity me pity me!" And
he fell upon his knees at the bed, bury
ing bis face in bis arms, bis mighty
man's frame shaking as with a palsy.
That same night Brondon told me
how be bad committed suicide, as be
put It and of his Intention to go to
Bristol and there await the sailing of
the ship and perhaps find a partial res
urrection In New Spain.
Unfortunately, he could not start for
Bristol at once, as he bud given some
challenges for a tournament at Rich
mond and could furnish no good excuse
to withdraw them, but be would not
leave his room or again see "that girl
who was driving him mad."
It was better, he thought, and wiser
ly, too, thqt there be no leave taking,
but that he should go without meeting
her.
"If I see ber again," be said, "I shall
have to kill some one, even if it is only
myself."
I heard him tossing in his bed all
night, and when morning came be
arose looking haggard enough, but with
his determination to run away and see
Mary no more Btronger than ever up
on him.
But Providence or fate or some one
ordered it differently, and there was
plenty of trouble ahead.

TRY HYOMEI AT GEORGE E. GREENE'S
RISK.
If It Falls to Cure Asthma He Will
Pay for the Treatment.
To the Editor of the Reformer:
Since I have been advertising the
Hyomei treatment for the cure of ca
tarrh under my guarantee to refund the
money if it did not give satisfaction,
many of my customers have told me of
remarkable cures of asthma' Hyomei
has made.
A letter from the laboratory tells me
that Hyomei is undoubtedly the only
treatment known tbat will cure all
forms of asthma, except cardiac asthma
and I have decided to offer to refund
the money in all cases of this disease,
where Hyomei is used, and does not
give relief and cure.
The Hyomei outfit consists of a neat
inhaler, that can be carried in the
purse or vest pocket, a medicine drop
per and a bottle of Hyomei, the com
plete outfit costing but 1.00.
My guarantee to refund the money
to any dissatisfied purchaser who sim
ply states that Hyomei has been used
according to directions without
benefit will hold good for asthma as
well as in the treatment of catarrh. I do
not, however, recommend Hyomei in
cardiac asthma, but in all other forms
of that disease mv faith is so strong,
tbat I gladly offer to pay for the
treatment in case it does not effect a
cure.
Respectfully yours,
George E. Greene.
