THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 0 i90I.

J look of padness nml Intlecl
Mtd slon on her face.
She hnd know him now for
some months. Hi' was a stu

on account of his nationality, but be

been thrown n Kt'cat deal Into his com
pany, as a result of which Rtronp .sym
pathy and friendship had spi-iintr tip
between them. Allela Allan, who hnd
all tho delightful, restless ambition of
an American girl, could not help but
be attracted to him, for 'the young man
was both Interesting and Interested,
and the girl took pleasure In telling
him all she could of her home.
He was an exceedingly good looking
Japanese, of medium height, slim but
athletic, with fine features, and with
eyes wider than the average Japanese
eyes; and he carried himself with all
the grace and dignity of a Japnnese
nobleman of the most ancient blood.
Alicia Allan had encouraged the first
timid advances he mode made toward
icr, for she was delighted with the nov
elty of their friendship. Now lie had
told her he loved her: told her so In his
gentle, earnest way and had asked her
to be his wife. Alicia had grown quite
white while he had been speaking and
when she spoke there was almost a note
f despair In her voice.

our delightful friendship! You have"

Shlmoda had lemalned silent, his
head drooping a little, bis face drawn
with pain. Then he had crossed the
loom slowly, and paused for a momeivt
at the door.
"You will excuse me this evening?"
"Yes." She had gone toward him,
her sweet blue eyes full of misty tears.
"I am so sorry, so sorry!" she kept
murmuring. "Don't let it spoil our
friendship. T want to be your friend
"Thanks." he said, smiling a trifle,
and then added, gently, "We will still

immediately after his refusal by Alicia,
and spent some time in Kuropo. Then
he returned to Japan, there to take a
position as sonsel (professor) In the
Imperial University, He had kept up
an almost regular correspondence with
Alicia, and the genuine liking and ad
miration for each other seemed not to
have abated on either side, save per
haps, that the young man had schooled
himself to regard her only as a very
dear and sweet friend.
He had told his parents about Alicia
only a few days after his arrival home.
Although Shimoda had tried in every
way possible to let his parents see the
ideality of his relationship to Alicia
(from an American standpoint), nev
ertheless the two old people could not,
tnd perhaps would not, understand
Mm. They had tot their hearts on
marrying their son to a young Japan
ese girl who lived only a short distance
from them, and they wondered mourn
fully whether the years of loneliness

nim abroad to study was to be tecom
ensed by his loving, not one of his
,wn countrywomen, but an American
girl a girl whom they, the parents
ad never seen.
Now, in all Kyushu there was no girl
o beautiful of charming as Hani-nan.
When she was a little bit ot a child
shimoda had 'carried her home on his
shoulder, and had announced to his
parents that he Intended having her
for his little wife some day. The idea
had pleased and amused them at the
time, for Haru's parents were quite
Well-to-do people of standing In the
city: and, moreover, the girl's dainti
ness and charm hnd delighted thorn so
much that they could not help loving
her nn her o n account.
A few days after their son had le
turned they took him to call on Huru.
Haru knew of and expected this visit,
so she dressed herself In her prettiest,
most bewildering manner, and was all
ready to meet them with the sweet,
Inimitable grace peculiar to the Jap

spoiled his natural love and apprecia

so much of the restless, progressive

manner of living which the Japanese

Yet now, as ho sat beforo Haru-san,

sat beside him. and the young man was
filled with a desire to keep her by his

"We are all glud to see you home,
Orltosama," she told him, very sweetly,

herself, and he smiled at her with quiet

said once, very sadly, "r never for

to him something of accusation. He
looked down upon tho dulnty little g.
ure, Into the dainty little face, and Into
the eyes In which now sat sadnesg, but
even, then behind that sadness he knew
there was a smile, A flood of tender
ness rushed through him, and for the
first time swept out of his heart the
Image of Alicia Allan that long had
completely filled It. He had been doing
wrong anyhow to cheilsh the memory
of her, he had. often told himself, for
she did not cute,
"No, I have not forgotten," ho whist
pored, bending low over her.
Sho looked up shyly and searched his
face with her eyes.
"It tilt cornea back now, Haru-san,"
he went on softly. "How sweet you
always) were, and what promises wc
made to each other."
"Promises that we broke," she mur
mured, still sadly, for they had told
her of his Infatuation for the Ameri
can girl. All morning sho had been
trying to win him back to her. Per
haps she had succeeded already.
"If the promises were broken, Haru-
san, may we not mend them? You
know what our parents desire, and I
am prepared to obey them In all
Haru smiled Joyously at him. After
all, Shimoda was only a young man,
and Haru was very bcnutlful.
It was fifteen months later. Allela
Allan was expecting a visitor. She
had filled all the tall vases with ex
quisite American beauties and hud
lighted long sticks of Incense, whose
odor mingled with the fragrance of the
roses. Flames leaned up from a
cheerful fireplace and added to the
comfort of the room. The brightness
and warmth of the fire, the fragrance
of the Incense and of the roses these-
Alicia knew would be grateful to the
visitor whom she was awaiting, and
who would soon bp with her.
When Shimoda Orlto bowed gravely
before her there was a soft light In the
girl's face that had not been there
when he had seen her last.
"I am so glad to see you back," she
told him, holding out both hands to
him, which he took Into his own.
"An" I am mos' glad to see you, Miss
They sat down on -a small settee to
gether, and the glil questioned Mm
about his travels. He told her of
them, always avoiding one subject,
however, just as he had done In his
letters from Japan. This was HarU
Sail. After he bad talked for quite a time,
and the constraint that at first seemed
to have been about him had worn
away, and he had drifted back Into
the old-time feeling of confidence and
sympathy, he In turn asked what she
had been doing since he had left her.
She turned her eyes into the glowing
grate fire and sketched briefly the
course of her life Mitre he had gone
A long silence followed her last sen
tence, during which he saw by her face
and nervously twitching hands that
there was something on her wind of
which she would speak to him, but
which, seemingly, she half feared to
put into words. He waited, motion
less, and at length she turned and
looked straight Into Ms face with her
beautiful, fearless eyes.
"Do you know," she with, with a bit
of maidenly confusion, "I am going to
make a confession to you that may
sound strange." She paused, flushing a
trifle, and for a moment watched, the
flames from the grate fire as they
sprang, wildly 1 oaring, up the chim
ney. Then she continued:
"After you left America after you
left me " Again she hesitated. She
seemed to be choosing her words with
difficulty. "We often make mistakes,
you know: we do no tknow ourselves
always. Do you follow me?"
The flush on her face deepened.
"You make It harder for me. But I
am not like most women: I cannot keep
back that which is In me. I must speak
now, even " She had thought It would
be an easy matter to tell him, and
that he would understand her, as he
always did so readily, but she was fal
In the months that had gone the
girl's heart had awakened. At fust It
had seemed to her inconceivable that
she should love and marry a Japan
ese; the had thought she was merely
Interested In him. But hardly had she
sent him away beforo she realized that
she had made a mistake: that she did
"You see 1 ," she began again, piti
fully, hoping that he would understand
and help her. But he sat there, calm
and Mill, watching with grave eyes that
seemed only a trifle surprised at her
"Won't you repeat the question you
asked me before going away?" she said.
It was out now, and the girl was
leaning forward, her face flushed) and
warm, but very sweet and beautiful
with the great moist eyes. She was so
sure of her place In his heart that be
fore the man had time to answer she
went on with a little nervous catch In
"You must not think me bold. It
would have been foolish to go through
life so, when a few wordis would have
made things all right. Ah! I knew
as soon as you were gone, and you
do not know how I regretted suffered.
But I knew you would come back to
me, and that all would be well,"
The man was shivering. His face
looked cold and gray, even in the de
light. He rose to his feet with a
quick movement of pain. She, too, had
ilsen, and she was watching him with
those beautiful eyes, which still held
their trembling joy. How yielding and
Inviting she looked with her hands out
stretched to him. He did not take
Ilium In his. Instead ho stepped back
a few poces from her.
"It Is too late now!"
"Too late!" tho glil echoed. She
went nearer to him, a frightened, un
comprehending gaze replacing the
former look of delight, "I don't under
stand." Her voice wus so pitiful that even
I he Japanese calm broke down before
"I do nod llg to tell you to pain you,'1
he said. The light had fadied altogeth
er from her face now, but tho mute,
expectant pain seemed to demand some
further explanation. "I raeapec' you
with nil my heurt," he said, with an
effoit, "and I will nod deceive you."
"No," sho broke In, "you do not do

"Nod that," he said. "At fiis' I

The girl dropped Into a chair und cov

When Joseph llamse, jr., the newly elected

Pilttsburg heard of his ability, and decided that
Ramsay would be just the uitn to take charge
Need just one thing -food. That is plain when one
looks at the gaunt body of the starving Hindoo. Give
him food, and from a weak, staggering, helpless being,
he becomes a strong, active man. If someone were to
come to the hungry Hindoo and say, " What you need
is not food but medicine," we should laugh at him.
This is just the case of the starving American. The
one thing his body needs is food. He has plenty to eat
but he is not fed ; because it is not what is eaten which
nourishes the body, but that which after being eaten is
digested and assimilated. Medicine can't feed. There
is only one way known to Nature by which the body
and its several organs can be made strong and that is
by food. For this reason no man can be stronger than
his stomach. When the stomach is " weak," then the
body will be weak also, because a "weak" stomach
involves the digestive and nutritive systems. The con
sequenco is that only a portion of the food received
into the stomach can be converted into nutrition, and
the organs of the body, like soldiers in a besieged cita
del, grow daily weaker as their rations are reduced.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has restored
thousands to health, because it makes the weak stom
ach strong. It removes the obstacles to the digestion
and assimilation of food, and Nature at once begins to
build up the body in the only possible way by food,
eaten, digested and assimilated.
Thought Himself tncurahle.
"I was afflicted with what the doctors called nervous indigestion.
Took medicine from my family physician to no avail. In looking over
one of Dr. Pierce's Memorandum Books," writes Mr. Thos. G. Lever,
of Lever, Richland Co., S. C, "I found my case described exactly.
I wrote to you and made a statement. You sent me a descriptive list
of questions, also hygienic rules. I carried these out as best I could,
but I thought myself incurable as I suffered so much with pain under
my ribs and an empty feeling in my stomach. At night would have
cold feet and hands, alternately. I was getting very nervous and suf
fered a great deal mentally, thinking that death would soon claim me.
Always expecting something unusual to take place ; was irritable and
impatient, and greatly reduced in flesh. I could scarcely cat anything
that would not produce a bad feeling in my stomach. After some
hesitation, owing to my prejudice against patent medicines, I decided
to try a few bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and
' Pleasant Pellets.' After taking several bottles of each, found I was
improving. I continued for six months or more, off and on. I have
to be careful yet, at times, of what I eat, in order that I may feel good
and strong. I fully believe if anyone suffering with indigestion or
torpid liver, or chronic cold, would take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery and ' Pleasant Pellets, and observe a few simple, hygienic
rules, would soon be greatly benefited, and with a little perseverance
would l)e entirely cured."
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is not a cure
all. It does one thing, and does that one thing per
fectly; it cures diseases of the stomach and other

organs of digestion and nutrition. And yet a great
many diseases which seem remote from the stomach
are cured by "Golden Medical Discovery." This is
because these diseases really have their cause in the
diseased condition of the stomach and its allied or
gans. These cures make good the axiom of Dr. Pierce :
"Diseases which originate in the stomach are cured
through the stomach." ,
Gremt Emaciation and Weakness.
"Words fail to express what I suffered for three years, with cold
chills, palpitation of heart, shortness of breath, and low spirits," writes
Mrs. A. C. Jones, of Walterboro, Colleton Co., S. C. "I could not
sleep, and really thought I would soon die. Had a peculiar roaring in
my head all the time. Was so emaciated and weak I could not feed
myself. My aunt induced me to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
1 Discovery, which I did, only to please her, and six bottles aired me.
I To-day am sound and well. During the three years I was-sick I,had
five different physicians."
The philosophy of these cures is quite simple. The

quantity of nutrition provided for the body falls below
natural requirements, this reduction in nutrition is
shared by each organ of the body. Each organ is on
short rations; starvation has begun. If nourishment
means physical strength, lack of it, means physical
weakness. Therefore, when the stomach is "weak"
and nutrition is decreased there will be "weak" lungs,
"weak" heart, "weak" nerves, "weak" or torpid liver,
and other forms of so-called weakness. These various
forms of weakness are all cured when tho "weak"
stomach is cured, and the nutrition of tho body re
stored to its normal basis.
Liver Complaint Cured.
Mrs. I,. Hedgecoke, of Dozier, Collingsworth Co., Texas, 'writes:
" I was troubled seven or eight years with indigestion and liver com
plaint, and received more benefit from the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and 'Pleasant Pellets' than any medicine I havei
"It is with pleasure that I tell you what Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery and 'Pellets' have done for me," writes Mrs. T. M.
Palmer, of Peede, Kaufman Co., Texas. "Two years ago I was taken
with stomach and bowel trouble. Everything I ate would put me in
distress. I lived two weeks on milk, and even that gave me pain. I
felt as though I would starve to death. Three doctors attended me
one said I had dyspepsia, two said catarrh of the stomach and bowels.
They attended me (one at a time) for one year. I stopped taking
their medicine and took other, patent, medicine ; got no better, and I
grew so weak and nervous my heart would flutter. I could not do any
work. Now, since using ' Golden Medical Discovery,' I can do my
housework very well ; am gaining in flash and strength, and can cat
anything I want."
Accept no substitute for " Golden Medical Discovery."
Dealers who offer " just as good " medicino in place of
" Discovery " do so for the sake of a little moro profit.
Their profit is your loss. Insist on the " Discovery."
