Better Than Calomel,
Oil or Salt for Liver,
Bowels and Stomach
Mother, daddy and the children can
always keep feeling fine by taking this
delicious fruit laxative as occasion de
mands. Nothing else cleanses the
atomach, liver and bowels so thoroughly
without griping.
You take a little at night and in the
morning all the foul, constipated waste,
aour bile and fermenting food, delayed
in the bowels gently moves out of the

Handy Ways About the House
Victor Hugo wrote: "He who every
morning plans the transactions of the
day and follows out that plan, carries
a thread that will guide him through
the labyrinth of the most busy life.
"The orderly arrangement of his
time is like a ray of light darting
through all his duties. Where no plan
is made chaos will soon reign."
Oaring for highly polished furniture

that are sold often leave a clouded sur

the best dust-cloth and an oiled
chamois will give enough polish. These
chamois arc to be had from dealers
and they last a year or longer.

amazed. What could this attitude
mean ?
"Mr. Warrington!" she called.
But he disappeared down tue com

A Woman's Reason.
Elsa stared at the vacant doorway.
She recognized only a sense of bewil
derment. This was not one of those
childish flashes of rudeness that had
amused, annoyed and mystified her.
She had hurt him. And how? They
had been together three days on the
boat, and once he had taken tea with
her in Rangoon. She could find noth
ing save-that she had been kind to hiin
when he most needed kindness, and
that she had not been stupidly curious,
only sympathetically so. He interested
her and held that interest because he
was a type unlike anything she had
met outside the covers of a book. He
was so big and strong, and yet so boy
ish. He had given her visions of the
character which had carried his man
hood through all these years of strife
and bitterness and temptation. And
because of this she had shown him
that she had taken it for granted that
whatever he had done in the past had
not put' him beyond the pale of her
friendship. There had been no de
grading entanglements, and women ;

And what had* she just said or done
to put that look of dumb agony In hia 1
face? She swung Impatiently from
the rail and began to promenade the
deck, still cluttered with luggage over
which the Lascar stewards were moll- |
Ing. Many a glance followed the sup
ple pleasing figure of the girl as she
passed round and round the deck.
Other promenaders stepped aside or
permitted her to pass between. The '
resolute uplift of the chin, and the ,
staring dark eyes which saw but inner
visions, impressed them with the fact
that It would be wiser to step aside
voluntarily. There were some, how
ever, who considered that they had as
much right to the deck as she. Before
them she would stop shortly, and as a
current breaks and passes each side of
an immovable object, they, too, gave

Being immersed In the sea of conjec
ture regarding Warrington's behavior,
th 6 colonel's glare did not rouse in her
the sense of impending disaster.
The first gong for dinner boomed.
The echoing wail spoke in the voice
of the East, of its dalliance, its con
tent to drift in a sargasso sea of en
: tangling habits and desires, of its far
talism and Inertia. It did not hearten
one or excite hunger. Elsa' would
rather have lain down in her Canton
lounging-chair. The dining-saloon held
i two long tables, only one of which was
in commission, the starboard. The
saloon was unattractive. A punka
stretched from one end of the table to
the other, and swung indolently to and
fro, whlnlijg mysteriously, sometimes
subsiding altogether and then flapping
hysterically and setting the women's
hair awry.
Elsa and Martha were seated some
where between the head and the foot
of the table. The personally-conduct
ed surrounded them, and gabbed in
cessantly during the meal of what they
had seen, of what they were going to
see, and of what they had missed by
not going with the other agency's
party. Elsa's sympathy went out to
the tired and faded conductor.
There was but one vacant chair;
and as she saw Warrington nowhere,
Elsa assumed that this must be his
reservation. She was rather glad that
he would be beyond conversational
radius. She liked to talk to the
! strange and lonely man, but she pre
ferred to be alone with him when she
did so.
She began as of old to study care
lessly the faces of the diners and to
! speculate as to their characters and
; occupations. Her negligent observa
tion roved from the pompous captain
down to the dark picturesque face of
the man Craig. Upon him her glance,
a mixture of contempt and curiosity,
rested. If he behaved himself and
made no attempt to speak to her, she
I was willing to declare a truce. In Ran-
I goon the man had been drunk, but on
! the Irrawaddy boat he had been sober
' enough. Craig kept his eyes directed
upon his food and did not offer her
even a furtive glance.
He was not in a hapny state of
: mind. He had taken passage the last
; moment to avoid meeting again the
one man he feared For ten years this
: man had been reckoned among the
lost. Many believed him dead, and
Craig had wished it raJier than be
lieved And then, to meet him face to
face in that sordid boarding house had
shaken the cool nerve of the gambler.
He was worried and bewildered. He'

reached for a and ate the

running through his head: What
would be the reprisal? For men of hia
ilk never struck without expecting to
be struck back Something must be
done. Should he seek him and boldly
ask whet he Intended to dn? Certainly
he could not do much on board here,
excepi o denounce him to the officers
as a professional gambler. And Paul
would scarcely do that since he, Craig,
had a bet ter shot in his gun. He could
tell who Paul was and what he had
done. Bodily harm was what he really

to say nothing so long as he let her
be; and with the episode of the hat
pin still fresh in his memory, he as
suredly would keep his distance. He
had made a mistake, and was not like
ly to repeat it.
But Paul! He finished his dessert j
and went off to the stuffy little smoke- i
room, and struggled with a Burma j
cheroot. Paul was a smoker, and i
sooner or later he would drop in. He
waited in vain for his man that night, j
And so did Elsa. She felt indignant j
at one moment and hurt at a»other. |
The man's attitude wa3 inexplicable; !
there was neither rhyme nor reason in j
it. The very fact that she could not
understand made her wonder march
beside her even in her dreams that
night. She began to feel genuinely
sorry that he had appeared above her
horizon. Just before she retired she
leaned over the rail, watching the re
flection of the stars twist and shiver
on the smooth water. Suddenly she
listened. She might have imagined it,
for at night thj ears deceive. "Jah,
Jah!" Somewhere from below came
the muffled plaint of Rajah.
Next day, at luncheon, the chair was
still vacant. Elsa became alarmed, j
Perhaps he was ill. She made in
quiries, regardless of the possible mis
interpretation her concern might he
given -by others. Mr. Warrington had
had bis meals served in his cabin, but
the steward declared that the gentle
man was not ill, only tired and irrita
ble, and that he amused himself with a
trained parrakeet.
All day long the sea lay waveless
and unrippled, a sea of brass and lapis
lazuli; brass where the sun struck and
lapis-lazuli in the shadow of the lazy
swells. Schools of flying-fish broke
fan-wise in flashes of silver, and por
poise sported alongside And warmer
and warmer grew the air.
Starboard was rigged up for cricket,
and the ship's officers and some of the
passengers played the game until the J
first gong. Elsa grumbled to Martha, i
There was little enough space to walk
in as it was without the men taking
over the whole side of the ship and
cheating her out of a glorious sunset.
Martha grew troubled and perplexed.
If there was one phase of character
unknown to her in Elsa It was irrknhii.
ity; and here she was, finding fault
like any ordinary tourist.
"Where is Mr. Warrington?"
"I don't know. I haven't seen him
since yesterday." Elsa dropped her
book petulantly. "I am weary of these
namby-pamby stories."
Martha's eyes had a hopeless look
In them as she asked: "Elsa, what is
the matter?"
"I don't know, Martha. I believe I
should like to lose my temper utterly.
I'm Irritable because I do not know my
own mind. I hate the stuffy stateroom-,
the food, the captain. Nothing seems
to disturb his conceit. Tonight we
sleep on deck, the starboard side. At
five o'clock we have to get up and go
inside again so they can holy-stone
the deck. And I am always soundest
asleep at that time. Doubtless, I shall
be Irritable all day tomorrow."
"Sleep up here on deck? But the
men?" horrified.
"They sleep on the port Bide." Elsa
laughed maliciously. "Don't worry.
Nobody minds."
"I hate the East," declared Martha
vindictively. "Everything is so slack.
It just brings out the shiftlesßne6B in
"Perhaps that U what alls me; I am
growing shiftless. When I came on
board I decided to marry Arthur, and

"What will you do if he speaks?"
"I have half a dozen good hatpins
left," dryly.
"I hate to hear you talk like that."
"It's the East. . . . There goes

we'll go down as we are to dinner, and
watch the ridiculous captain and his
fan-bearer. The punka will at least
give us a breath of fresh air. There
doesn't seem to be lany on deck. One

Martha followed her young mistress
Into the dinlng-saloon; she was anx
ious and upset. Where would this
mood end? With a glance of relief she
found Warrington's chair still vacant
