acute homicidal mania. He bad been
with me for four years, and, on tbe
average, had an nttack of mania every
six or seven weeks. Iurlng bis period
of luuncy he was so ferocious as to de

and of eonrse, ns a result, had to be de

half an hour or so a day in his con

successful man, and on my fortieth
birthday I reckoned I was making over
2.000 a year. I had always been a
lonely man and had never had the least
Inclination toward female society, con
tenting myself with my work and my
books. One day. however, I had to
wait upon aa old gentleman who had
recently come to our town for the pur
pose of drawing up his will. When
thli was done I was Introduced to his

sound ridiculous for a middle-aged

was n desperate fact. I will not bore

and went back to my office. There I

that, cost what it might, I would mar

"It was clearly absurd for me to at
tempt to win her love in the usual way,
the disparity In our years was so great,
so I decided to win her respect first.
"I took time over It and quietly inter
ested myself In her pet projects, sub
scribed to her sick fund, lent her books,
nnd was of use to her la many ways.
Already she regarded me as a very
dear friend, nnd. I have no doubt,
would soon have learned to love me.
"Ono night I was to take her and her
sister to the theater and had booked
three stalls. At the last minute, how
ever, to my secret Joy, her sister had a
bad hadache and was unable to go.
We went ns arrangod nnd I decided to
put my fortunes to the touch during
the performance. On our arrival the
theater was crowded and, to my In
tense annoyance, I found a young cli

the next stall to ours. I was obliged
to introduce him and had the mortifica

made an impression on him. What

I spent, although I worked until mj

let me sleep. I roamed up and down
my room, planning impossible methods
of revenge, enly to see tbe futility of
it all. The times are not suited fo.
melodrama, and If I could only watel
and watch and wait.
"On morning I crawled down to thi
office feeling utterly done up and list
lessly examined my correspondence
Among it I noted one from an old
friend who was practicing as a physl
clan in Paris. Tossing tbe rest of tbe
letters to the managing clerk, I begai
to read my friend's long letter. Sud
denly a paragraph hi it seemed U
statid before my eyes as if written in
Ire. It ran thus:
" 'You wfU, I know, be keenly inter
ested In a marvelous discovery that
Dr. Luys. of this city, has Just made.
He Is ear great authority on brain dls
eases and also dabbles in hypnotism
and other kindred subjects.
" 'He has staVMshed beyond any
doubt that It Is possible to remove thr
delusions of an Insane person pre
viously hypnotized by means of a thin
magnetized steel band worn around
tbe patient's forehead for about a
week. This Is sufficiently marvelous.
but Is nothing to tbe fact that If a sane
man or woman wears tbe band pre
viously used by the lunatic tbe delu
sions of tbe latter pass in their entire
ty to the wearer, who becomes an echo
In every action of bis predecessor.'
"At last! At bast! Crushing the paper
in my band, I revelled in the exquisite
revenge the letter revealed to me. My
brain, preternaturally excited, in a
few moments planned the whole
scheme. Violently ringing my bell, I
Informed the clerk who came hurrying
in that I had to go to Paris at once on
urgent business. I told him to ask Sir
Edward to meet me at the office In four
days' time to finish the settlement, and
I started at once for London en route
"Fatigue was gone. Once more alert
and active, I felt as if treading on air.
On the Journey I rehearsed and rehears
ed the scheme I bad planned out until
I thought it perfect. I at once, on ar
rival, hastened to my friend's house
and pretended that I had not received
his letter. After breakfast be took
me to Dr. Luys' clinic, and there I saw
that the powers he laid claim to were
Indeed his. Selecting the neediest-looking
of bis assistants I gently touched
him and drew him aside. In my best
French I told him that if he came to
my hotel that evening with tbe band
Just removed from tbe lunatic who bad
been relieved before my eyes, I would
give him 2,500 francs, or 100. At first
he would not listen, but at last he did.
nnd I went back to my hotel, content.
That evening I left Paris with my 're
venge' carefully packed in a small box.
On arrival at my house I slept for
twelve hours, a thing I hnd nut done
for weeks, and awoke ready to carry
my scheme through.
"I see you shudder, doctor, but I felt
calm ps fate Itself.
"The following morning I was closet
ed with Berkley for some time, poring
over deeds of title and old, musty docu
ments. I purposely delayed, in order
to fatigue him. Presently I saw the
tell-tale contraction of his face, and I
knew be was mine. Leaning across tbe

THIN BLOOD, WHITE COMPLEXION
Doctors Diagnosed the Case as Heart
Disease and Consumption But the
Symptoms Were lne to Watery

From Presbyterian Journal, PhUatTa Pa.
After years of patient and intense suffer
ing. Hiss Gertrude Gilbert has recovered
her lost health, and is to-day a rosy and
bloominevpeetinen of young womanhood
Miss Gilbert's illness, which was of several
years duration, was due mainly to a lask of
blood. To-day her rosy cheeks and healthy
appearance denote the grateful change
from a lire ol lll-neaitn to one of freedom
from all illness. When a reporter called
on her at her home, No. 1919 Olenwood
Avenue, Philadelphia, tbe young lady ran
ugociy uown tne steps witn au me eiastlo
ity of youth.
"I could not havo dona that eight
months ago," she said as she seated herself
in a big armchair.
"At that time." she continued, "had I
ran down tbe steps as I did a few moments
ago, I would have fainted." With ber eyes
sparkling, and a vivacious flurry in her
manner. Miss Gilbert asked tbe cause of
tbe reporter's visit. Upon being told tbat
he came to ak about her Ulness,8hesaid that
she would cheerfully relate her experience.
"I have been so wonderfully benefited that
within the past eight months I have grown
from a mere skeleton to what you bow see.
I had been sick for a long time, when a
friend urged me to try Dr. Williams' l'ink
rills for Pale People. Previous to this
three doctors had treated me. They diag
nosed my trouble as heart disease, together
with consumption, and prescribed accord
ingly. All this medical treatment did not
benefit me in the least. I was in a terrible
condition. There was scarcely any blood
left in my composition, and my friends
often told me that they thought I was a
victim of blood disease. Mv chief trouble
was weakness, and after laborious efforts
to get upstairs I almost went into a faint,
ami on several occasions thought I was go-
in to die.
"So little blood had I that mv ears wore
almost transparent, and my complexion
was as white as a sheet. I eun scarcely de
scribe my sensations, but after repeated
treatment by my physicians I became thor
It was at tbia time that Ir. Williams'
Pine Pills were recommended to me, and I
procured a box. Uefore I bad finished it I
began to feel tho benefit of my health.
Ibis gavo me encouragement, and I becan
a systutnatio course according to the regu
lations on tho wrapper. At tho end of tbe
seventh or eighth box, I forgot which. I
was an entirely different irirl. In addition
to having a sufti -ient quuutity aud better
quality of blood in my veins, I was relieved
of that shortness of breath and quick heart
tion w.lieti lias been my chief trouble.
My nppetite returned and I was enabled to
o my daily duties with a cheerfulness
which I had never before experienced.
'Several weeks ago I stopped taking the
pills, and while I feel confident I shall never
aguin lie in such ill health, I always, as a
preventative. Keep a box ot Dr. Williams
Piuk Pills in my room. They are all they
are represented to be, and I say again that
to tbeui, and them alone, do I owe my res
tor iti'i i to health."
Ir. Williams' Pink Pills contain. In a
condensed form, all the elements necessary
to give now life and richness to the blood
and restore shattered nerves. They are
also a spocifio for troubles peculiar to fe
males, such as suppressions. Irregularities
and all forms of weakness. They build up
the blood, and restore the glow of health
to pale and sallow cheeks. In men they
effect a radical cure in all cases arising
from mental worry, overwork or excesses
of whatever nature. Pink Pills are sold in
boxes (never in loose bulk) at 50 cents a
box, or six boxes for 2.50, and may be bad

A Itoaat Tlaaa Aaa,
"Ones on a time oh, long ago, .
When all the world was young,
Tbe sea was made of kMnoaado,
And the land of chewing gnm.
The birds were built of poppormiat
And lived in sugar trees,
Aad there were no arithmetical
Or slates or geog-a-phees!
A litde boy and little girl .
Ruled as a king and flue a
They pat the old folks into Jail
Whenever they were mean;
And then the boys could play all day
And stay oat in the rain.
And never swallowed horrid stuff.
For no one had a pain;
Aad no coe had to brush his hah)
Or ever wear a hat
Ob, how I wish I'd only lived
In such a time as that!'
Lizards with Capes and Hood a.
Hew many boys and girls ever beard
of a Heard which wore either hood or
a cape wherever It went? There h
such a little creature, and Its home la
In the deep forests or Australia. It
name Is the gray lizard, but It Is best
known as the "hooded lizard." It gets
the name from folds of loose skin
around the neck, which It raises over
LIZARD WITH A HOOD.
Its head like a hood or lowers over its
shoulders like a cape. The oddest thing
Is that scientists do not know what It
wants with either one.
The fore legs of the little creature
have no connection with the hood. The
loose folds are raised and lowered by a
special set ot muscles. Tbe common
attitude of the lizard Is that shown in
the picture. No one knows what Its
food is. and for that reason the ani
mal will not live in captivity. It In
habits the trees of Australian woods,
leaping among the branches so swiftly
as to resemble a brown streak. It is
inoffensive, and may be. handled with
out fear. Some of these lizards grow
to be more than two feet long.
Doing and Not Dolag.
'Sir, said a lad, coming down to
one of the wharves In Boston, and ad
dressing a well-known merchant.
have you any berth on your ship? I
want to earn something.'
"What can you do 7' asked the gen
"I can try my best to do whatever
I am put to do," answered the boy.
"What have you done?"
"I have sawed and split all mother's
wood for nigh on two years."
"What have you not done?' asked
the gentleman, who was a queer sort
"Well, sir," answered the boy, after
a moment's pause, "I have not whis
pered In school once for a whole year."
"That's enough," said the gentleman,
"you may ship aboard this vessel; and
I hope to see you the master of her
some day. A boy who can master a
woodpile and bridle bis tongue must be
made out of good stuff."
A boot a Wonderfal Tree.
Did you ever hear of a tree bearing
glue, towels, cloth, tinder and bread?
There Is Just such a wonder. It Is
found on tbe Taclfic Islands and It is
called the bread-fruit tree.
It is about as tail as a three-story
house and the branches come out
straight from the tree like so many
arms. They are covered with leaves
nearly two feet long and deeply gashed
at tbe edges, while half hidden among
them are the fruits, growing like apples
on short sterna, but larger and having
a thick yellow rind.
This fruit Is like bread, and It Is In
season during eight months of the year,
the natives finding a good living In it!
They gather it while it la green and
bake It In an oven. Scraping off Its
outer blackened crust they come to the
loaf, which Is very much like nice
white bread. But it must be eaten soon
after baking, else It grows harsh and
loses Its pleasant taste.
As for glue. It oozes from the trunk
of the tree and Is found uueful for
many purposes; the leaves make ex
cellent towels for the few natives who
care to use them; and from the Inner
barldjpf the tree a kind of coarse cloth
can be made. Besides this Its dried
blossoms are nsed for tinder in lighting
fires, and the wood is in great demand
for building purposes.
With a few of these wonderful trees
In the front yard housekeeping ought
to be an easy matter.

The case of Mrs. Colony, whose letter to Mrs. Pink ham we publish, is an
illustration of the good to be received from Mrs. Pinkham's advice ; here is a
woman who was sick for year and could get no relief at last in despair she
wrote to Mrst Pinkham received in return a prompt, sympathetic and inter
ested reply. Note the result and fro and do likewise.
" I was troubled with auch an aching in my back and hips, and I felt so tired
all the time, and hud fcr four years. - For the last year it was all I could do to
drag- around. I would have such a ringing in my head by spells that it seemed
as though I would grow crazy. I ached from my shoulders to my feet and
waa very nervous. I was also troubled with a white discharge. I wrote to Mrs.'
Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., received a prompt reply and followed her advice, and
now I have no backache and begin to feel as one ought ; in fact, I never felt bet
ter in ten years than I do now. I thank God that I went doctoring with Mrs.
Pinkham when I did, for if I had not I know I would have been in my grave "

The reason why so many women suffer
in silence from the multiple disorders con
nected with their sexual system is that
they cannot bear to broach the subject
to a mau, even if he is a physician.
No one can blame a modest, sensitive
woman for this reticence. It is unneces
sary in these times, however, lor a woman
makes to all afflicted women a most pencrous
offer. Mrs. l'inkham of Lynn, Mass., bids every
woman who suffers to write to her and confide
every symptom that annoys her, and she will give
her advice without charge, and that advice is
based upon the greatest experience ever possessed
by man or woman in thiscountry, and extends over
a period of twenty-three years, and thousands upon
thousandsof cases. Wh v suffer in silence any longer.
