old Roger Loomis lay propped by the
pillows on the broad couch by the window
looking out on the hedge lined garden,
which ran down to the river. On that turf
be had sported as a child. Through those
winding paths he had strolled iu early man

Loomis family hu had dwelt throughout
harvest and winter, maintaining a famous
hospitality, achieving respect if not love,
and the honors which position, wealth and
learning may bring. Hut thesacred hearth
of home bod remained gloomy and cold.
Here he had seen his only sou re-enacting
the griefs of his father, a noble youth ad
vancing into u noble manhood, until the
cling of soft arms had become u restraining
clog. Here he had watched the successive
mutations, coldness, recrimination, un hap

Here he had been left iiWme. for his

snapped the chain of similitude alone,
save for his little grandsSn. Ah, what u
mighty exception I The light of that child's
nature hail dispersed sorrow and brought
contentment, in him his pride and affec
tion had found responding recompenses.
Nsver had Egbert disappointed him. Never
had he given the lie to that ideal of manli
ness and honor which had become his like
ness. How the old man loved him and
prayetl for his future! How he would fain
mark the pitfalls, that they might be avoid

DatUre and discipline had cleared the path
for his darling, but now, even in this resig

ous confession of passion for one whose as
sociations he drafted and despised, and out
from the forgetfulne-iof the past straight
way rushed agonies gibing tit his extrem
ity and their own undiminished powers.
"Ah, well," llghed old Roger Loomis,
"it is hard to kick against the pricks. He
must Win by struggling.''
Yes, such was the condition of man's rise
from the tsl I , that nsvs? dying, ever extend-
ing mysterious sin, but was it necessary
that toil experience should come s.o late
that ere the clouds had rolled away the sun
had set? Let him consider! He had h:-cn

in consultation. For an hour he sat ut the
desk and wrote, and his client watched the
glide of the silver river and prayed that
thus might his purpose speefl to its goal.
Then tlsl butler and the gardener were sum
moned, and with Unaccustomed fingers at
tached their signatures.
The lawyer prepared to take his depar
ture with many a muttered "humph'1 and
shrug of shoulder.
"I see you don't like it, Burgess," said old
Roger Loomis. "The sentiment does you
honor, but 1 have my reasons. Preserve
the will 1 made a year since, and If you
don't receive this one from mo within a
week offer that one for probate, for you
may then be sure that I have changed my
mind and applied the match."
"(.'hanged your notion rather," growled
the lawyer. "There it is, and I hope ir

the law. But there, 1 never offer my ad

Date as you, Goodby."
"Goodby, old Prickly Pear," said his cli
ent, smiling whimsically.
It was a fortnight Inter that old Roger
Loomis called Egbert to his bedside. "Vou
are going to be married, of course, my
dear?" he said feebly. "Alter I'm gon

bodings are foolish. I'll forbode no more.

' Though you fIuv me, yet will I trust In
you," responded Egbert simply. "I will do

"The Lord make bis face to shine on you,
my boy," faltered tho old man. "1 think 1
may sleep now. 1 am weary."

will and testament of Huger Loomis, de
ceased. As such it wan at once admitted to
probate, for it fnllllled general expecta
tions, and Egbert Loomis became t he owner
of the vast estate of his grandfather. How
hfippy was Egbert I He remembered the
kind old man too tenderly to mourn for
him, for he knew that never hnd curfew
come more gratefully to tired laborer than
had death to Roger Loomis.
Ho was happy iu the ofetM of Ids prop,
erty, happy, oh, so happy In bis love. And
Indeed melancholy would have been that
nature that did not lighten from const ant
association with Frances Phibhs, for she
was as blithe as the sunshine. And like
the sunshine rhe was blithe, for It hath no
hope beyond existence. Her ambition, if
she was ambitious, was fully satisfied. She
was beloved, and he, who worshiped her as
his goddess was thot nost gallant, the most
talented, the richest youtig man of Aber
deen. From his position she could look
about her with superiority, for for below she
would discern the struggling throng of kin
dred, friends, acquaintances aud Strangers,
Aud so the golden days outstretched and
formed links of weeks and coils of mont h ..
and the time came when Egbert, looking
forward with fond anticipation, murmured
to hitnuelf, "A month from now and Fran
ces will be my wife."
He was seated, as he Spoke his thought,
before the glowing hearth lu his grand
father's great room, watching the Hashes
t brougb t he curls of smoke, aud from them
conjuring views ol felicity. It was late at
niL'jit , and the v hole house was silent, save
for the vain buffeting of the storm with

comfort by its contrast. liven us Kgbert
spoke, he looked toward the couch by the
window and seemed to see the gaunt old
man again extending u sealed package and
to hear his words, "A month before your
Wedding day open it, examine the contents

When his grandfather had thus spoken
Egbert had received the admonition, as he
always had. implicitly. What it meant of
course he did not know, but some good
Sowing from that p-renninl fountain of
benelicence. He had scarcely thought of it
since and then only with a tender smile, as
one recalls a kindness. But now the room

spent, and a dread shook his heart. Such
Is the frailty of mortal felicity. When
through patient toil it hath been construct

of the coping stone shall o'ertopple it.
Egbert went to the desk and brought
forth the package. He bore it to the drop
light and broke the seals. He unfolded t he
w rapper and discovered a legal document.
It was indorsed the "Last Will and Testa
ment of Roger Loomis" and dated a fort
night previous to his grandfather's death.
He read the contents. They Were terse and
significant. The testator abrogated all oth
er wills aud devised his entire estate to the
the Abardetn Benevolent fraternity, of
which branch he had bcenoucof thecharter

privation, of loneliness. Neverdld imagina

judgment w hose voice had la-en unheard in
prosperity now assured him that she was
us foreign to such a condition as a lark to
the gloomy w ladings of a cavern.
There is a consolation in that despair
which comes from Inability to do wrong.
It stifles thought nud convince one of one's

"I think you may sufely trust the court

W.Allen Hubbard, M. D , 70 West
( Vdur street, is one ef Boston's best
physicians. He says what hundreds of
other physicians have said before, and
his experience adds one more to the
iiundreds already published, that
Paine's celery compound is unduntedly
the highest prodnct of the medical
knowledge of this century.
"The formnln of Paine's celery com

of its sci- ntific valne, and 1 prescribed
the remedy in a number of cases where
the Hood was impoverished and the
nerves werkened. The results were so
tatitfactory that I do not hesitate to
indorse Paine's celery compound as a
most valuable remedy."
J. H. Hanaford, M. D., whose writ

have ondeared him to thousands, lies
said: The formula of Paine's celery

was so satisfactory that 1 have used the
medicine personally, and with much
benefit. I hsve prescribed it with mojt

The well known Boston physician
and surgeon, Dr. A. W. K. Newton,
whose portrait is given a,bove, states
very emphatically tbat this compound
is the most reliable touio and strength
giver he hat found for the peculiar and
dangerous codltion of the system that
