are unmistakable being a hard dry cough and the utmost difficulty in breathing causing the little sufferer to show extreme pain This state yfelds almost immediately to hot ap plications and simple medicines and so may be treated without a physician unless the croup seems to be too se vere In that case a doctor should be sent for at once t Croup is a gathering of mucus the result of a cold and a dose of castor oil should be given as soon as it can be swallowed says the Washington Star If there has been no action on the liver it Is well to give douche of warm soapy water but both of these may be delayed until heat is applied For this treatment first wring some flannels In water as hot as the babys skin can stand without burning and put them over the throat constantly changing so that the heat may not grow less The baby should be left in the bed and warmly covered and a vapor inhalation should be fixed and ready for use at the earliest moment lfa child shows a disposition to croup and some babies have It for yearsIt is well to keep a croup kettle in the house for the steam inhala tion is so much easier given with itLacking that however a very fair substitute may be made by putting a large towel or sheet over the top of the bed to form a tent or covering over the head and directing into this the nose of the kettle of boiling water This kettle should be on a gas or u- 1coholstove by the bed that the steam may be kept up and of course one must be careful It does not overturn Another thing to guard against Js the infant being burned by the steam The latter will do this if it strikes him directly but not It it goes by him al the same time filling the tent Any ef fort he may make to get away from this steam breathing to which In pain mayobjectwill soften the mucus quicker than anything else chl1dfquicklymay be given every fifteen minutes un til the baby vomits and no time should be lost In getting a physician Until he arrives however the mothers ef fort should be to relieve the congestion and prevent choking An old fashioned application for croup Is goose oil used because of its beginnings andeand tftfen heat Is applied to drive It In A hot water bag will serve for this purpose putting a flannel between it and the skin Croup except In extreme cues li not a thing to cause anxiety li tone works quickly andbag plenty of hot tratihiurt t W OJ TWO CENTS PER SHINE

suburb who were together a great deal and constantly joking one- another He talked to them about his nocturnal trips home his fear of footpnds and what he hoped to accomplish in case of attack One night when he was passing a dimly lighted place between the street car line and his house he was seized from behind by both arms a hand was thrust in toIweapon with which to pursue them sevIThey sympathized with him deeply and while doing so two others of the set Mark Hamlin and Ben Turner walked In Stout was somewhat sur prised to find callers so late at night It was 11 oclockbwt after all there was nothIng remarkable In their visit After listening to his Account of the robbery and asking many questions Mark Hamlin banded him the pocketbook of which he had been robbed and confessed himself the robber Then there was a general Jollifica tion Stout brought out drinkables and cigars and all agreed that a very amusing and practical joke bad been played Spme mouths after this Stout was again on his way home at night this time with 1000 In his pocket that had come In late when at the very same spot as before he heard the order Hands up At the same time hei felt the cold muzzle of a gun near his car and hands relieving him of everything he possessed Then the thai with the gun said to Mm You valk around the block before you go h me and remember that youre watched Any attempt to

stones throw of his house Darting to It jhe went In got a revolver the robbers bad taken the one he carriedran b ick on tiptoe to find them dividing the spoil under a gas light Hands up he yelled In a stem torlan voice There were but two men and both raised their hands Leave the things on the sidewalk cried Stout and mind no lowering of hands Stout said this to gain time to thlifk The men remained motionless Now turn your backs and go on down the street The men hesitated then after a word with each other did as they Were told Stout followed tilt he came to his prop erty picked up every article

t the Los Angeles branch of the hYdrographic service was taking his first vacation in three years to put in a week of fishing for the big jew fish at Sa ata Catalina That is howit came aboUt that I

add that I am get ting sufficiently tired of it Whereupon I took the secret outofj my pccket and showe Pit to him It was nothing but a large silver watch with Oriental designs on the back tnd some words in the native- langiIageof Luzon engraved in Roman lettering on the inside of the cover words was the nane of Emil o Aguinaldo I nz d picked it up on the outskirts of Manila the morning after out first fpllowlugbeen roken Into and ransacked while I was on a visit to friends else here- In the city two days later I had been held ip by four unknown assailants and r bbed of everything I had on me which happened not to Include the mysterious watch as I had thoughtful ly hi den It and a week later after a narrow escape from being kid naped I bad concluded Manila was no longer a place for a pleasures eker and embarked as speedily as I could for home taking the watch with me Nor hd my flight altogether imded with tie close of the voyage for even after Errriving on American soil J was still oppressed in a degree grotesquely out of proportion to the insignificance of the incident by a constant Impulse to run away with my absurd prize as though It had been the key to some famous international conspir acy I told Harvey at dinner that evening that I had business in the city which would certainly take me north the fol lowing day After weve caught a 300pound tuna you may go he replied The next morning was inhospitablyr cold and dark when we stumbled into our clothes after a wakeful night and stole forth from the hotel meeting our Italian boatman on the veranda He had come to wake us up I think we must have been fishing fuIla halfhour when my companion save a yawn and said it want time for fishing yet and he couldnt for the life of him see why Andrea had called us so beastly early- I nota calla you at all said the Italian shrugging his shoulders Whata time you teenk catcha da feesh Not for an hour yet Harvey re plied winding his line around a peg in the bow of the boat and pulling out 2Froom woke me up at all hours by opening and closing his windows stamping round his room and otherwise creating an allnight disturbance Hes a queer piece that chap Calls himself Senor Analdos Spanish I observed quietly Mexican grandee Im told putted Harvey through his pipe Dead swell and very exclusive Been here a week they say and knows nobody Dresses with all the noisiness of royalty but has one of those exquisite polishes you generally see on aristocrats from the Latin countries As a matter of fact though concluded my friend Iazil3a the beggar strikes me as sort

Harvey wks about to reply but changed his mind and asked me what time It was Halfpast four I replied return Ing the watch to my pocket And where are we Andrea Closa da whistling buoy sare Half a mile I teerik I could see the tower of the buoy looming in the dark haze ahead of us It seemed as Andrea had said about half a mile away You want to get out of this said vererightjInwhere there hasnt been a fish since he swimming season opened At that moment I felt a tap on the side of my coat I turned question I Wefl I said What is itsAndrea raised his brows with answering inquiry What was it you wanted I repeated l I notla wanta anyteeng I thought you touched me- N sare I no toucha you Shut up talking said Harvey Lets get to work JEpr the next halfhour we circled slblvly around the buoy and fished in silence Then Harvey wound his line on the peg in the bow again and refill d his pipe Whats the time now he asked The next moment I could have fallen out of the boat with const rna tion My watch was gone il had worn it in a small inside pock et of my coat without any chata thinking it safer that way I had con suIted it but a halfhour before and replacing it carefully had buttoned my coat over It Under the coat I wore a sweater so there was no chance that I had mistakenly placed it hia waistcoat pocket The watch had simply been removed in some miraculous way from the pocket In which 1 was accustomed to keeping it and In which I remembered with terrible distinctness having placed it such a little while before And now miracle was to follow mir acleor else we hadnt done with the first one yetfor while I was still frenziedly fumbling about my clothes I became aware of Andrea leaning for ward in strange excitement with his finger pointed seaward What the deuce is happening any how cried Harvey getting to his feetIwas doubly dumb Straight ahead of us in the haze of the dawn I could descry the outlines of a vessel some two or three miles farther seawardS Our own boat was fully from shore the whistling buoy we could see quite distinctly on a line perhaps a quarter ofa mile to the south of us Andrea was hauling a glass out of a locker and fixing it to his eyes Vare wonderful he muttered un der his breath I noa see da boata look lak heem before teenk soi Well I had Here in a part of the Pacific at least six weeks travel from where I had last seen one was a FilI- pino junk It was bearing with good speed southward but tjoming in also It seemed in a fair way to pass gulte close to the whistling buoy at which we also were heading If we should stop at the buoy the strange craft would come within speaking distance of us unless she should change her course Trembling under a threee fold mysterythe hotel junk the magical disappearance of my watchI urged Andrea to give me the glass and row with all his might for the buoy Harvey I silenced with a shake of the head IIn ten minutes we had run the boat alongside the buoy and were resting on the side hidden from the Filipino vessel By poking the glass around the corner I could see the incongruous visitor still coming on now within a mile of us From a dazed inspection of this marvel I was shaken abruptly by a lh nd on my arm I whirled about to find Harvey staring at me his face the color of a bone Prattv he gasped dragging me around to where I could follow with my eyes the direction he was indicat- Ing with his other bandlido you see that He pointed to a boxlike receptacle in the base of the buoy It ran all the way through from out side to the other and was simply one of the Inlets for the air that blew the whistle Lying face up and ticking away aa busily as ever on the wet floor of the buoy was my Filipino watch It was enough to take the wits clean out of any man this startling trans tion of the watch out here In the ocean with the Filipino Junk in sight RS an evident influence a Filipino ma gician on shore and the devil only u s Knew what else in the wind To attempt an explanation pf hOw thei watch had got out pf my pocket and jumped across a halfmile of ocean to the whistling buoy was pf course beyond me and I could only crouch In the boat with my two shivering companions and stare And so while we were all crouching and staring a visible link in the phe nomena came before us A human land appeared in the aperture in the buoy from nowhere that we could see and laying withIdrewNot one pf us moved We musk have eat gazing into the buoy like men dreaming for as long as you would take to catch your breath after a hard fall then Santa Maria The Italians voIce rose In almost a shriek We stiffened in our seats and l ppintingLesslead was bobbing upon the surface pf the ocean I turned the glass upon It At first I could seo only the back of it for it was moving away from us toward the Filipino vessel whichnow stood halt a mile out but did not all pf us know whose head it was The foreign ma gicians of course the Filipino whom we had left three miles ashore in the Catalina hotel The next moment he turned and I saw his face He was swimming rap idly toward the junk Andrea caught at his oars and tore them into the waves The boat moved from the buoy I gripped the sides arid shouted to the Italian to row with all his might He was already doing so But not in the direction I had meant The boat had turned its nose shoreward and was splashing across the waves with a- peed that bent me in the middle with every pull of the oars You cursed fool T cried springing for the Italians wrists If you dont turn this boat around Ill But he did not hear me norTteel my grasp upon him He was r wing with the strength of a madman terror had put a glare In his eyes hud deadened his senses of hearing and feeling I called to Harvey for aid My friend grippingbothI hardly like to say what happened In the next Instant for at first it will not be credited on top of the things narirativenotwhile you wait and must be kept to the facts While I still had hold of Andreas hands the Italian fell in a heap In the bottom of the boat Harvey gave a hoarse cry of mingled prayer and curse and I was left to clutch the nearest seat and gasp while the little craft tore over the whitecaps with the speed of an express train What was moving it I looked forward and saw the head again on the water We should be upon it In a se- condwe should at this rate crash into the junk a second later What was the invisible power pr attraction that pulled us thitherward at so terrific a speed Impressions otold witch stories flew before my mind atwhichThen the boat gave a jar and the man swimming ahead of us was lifted clear Out of the water He was hanging on to a thick line which stretched far ahead into the sea Harveys tuna line with an immense tuna careering seaward at the other end pf It Hang pn I yelled fo I could soe the Filipino was more fritter ej now yourUfeboat He had sense enough left to know that If he let go the boat would strike him He was only ten feet out on the videntlyrisenthe line clear of the water near the boat The Filipino junk was now but a hundred yards ahead although sail plainlyInaCut the line shrieked the Filipl no Then I will let go and you can pick me up- Harvey I cried for he was in my waycut the line or well be dashed to piecesHe his wits barely In time toI save us One slash pf his knife did the business The moment after we had bumped up to the junk and the Fill pino had let go the line and was swim ming toward us He was a superb swimmer and apparently indefatlga ble He called In Filiplnese to the junk to stop Before we could realize it we were hauled aboard of her by about a dozen Malays Their captain- S lute as we came over the side Our Filipino stamped his foot To sea he cried shaking the wa ter from his clothes To sea as fast as you can go These gentlemen ate very persistentthey do not like tp part with what does not belong to them They have decided to stay with us as far as Honolulu and perhaps go all the way to Manila See and be fished the watch Out of a bag at his neckI had not only to take it put pf the gentlemans pocket but later tp remove it from our appplnted rendezvous and bring itabeard with my own hands All my fine clothes are

f THE SPRINGFIELD SUN WEDNESDAY JANUARY 13 1909 f r LOTTIES BARGAINB- y EDNA BLEEKMANC- dpyrjerhted 1908 by Associated Literary Press Perhaps it was because Wisner was the proprietor of the only dry goods store In JJndervale that Lottie Vincent was attracted to him perhaps because Lottie was an inveterate bargain hunt er and propinquity is a powerful aid of Cupid It is a matter open to argument and not worth the arguing The main point at issue Is the fact that Lottie was attracted and that Sidney Wisner repaid that regard with interest Undervale had reached that stage of growth when the general Store had commenced to resolve itself into its va rious component parts not to be reunited until at some lar distant day when the department store repeated the original shopkeeping on a larger scale and again one could purchase dress goods and salt fish groceries and harness under one roof It Was fVisner who had seen that the time was ripe and the Boston store was the result He rented one of the Tboms in the new Benson block and Iwith new stock and fixtures gave the place the aspect of a city establish ment TJiidervale was delighted with the change none more so than Lottie She was a bornbargain find and asher parents were wealthy she had the money to gratify her passion with the result that from the first she had been Wisnerte best customer Even after the business reached a point where he was able to put on two clerks he made it a point to wait upon her himself Lottie delighted in her personally conducted shopping tours and from visiting Ip the store Wisner passed toI visits to tier home Wisner also bQgan to watch his bank account grow From the first his store had prospered and he determined that when his profit and loss account show ed a fair balance on the proper side he would put his fate to the test Honier Vincent was president of the bank and trust company and Wisner Wanted to be able to make a good showing When he went to ask for Lot ties hand though he could not hope to equal the Vincent fortune Hehad not long to wait for the new itore prospered mightily and the time soon came when Wisner began to rehearse the speech he should make to Lotties rather when he should first have spoken to Lottie It was a simple matter to prepare his speech for the elder Vincent He SaId It over utfJ l he believed that heI must repeat m his sleep The rble how was to speak to Lottie He knew that Lottie wpuld not be lyon by the simple suggestion that they get married When the Clem znons Comedy company played their semiannual engagement at the rink Wisner shut up shop and took Lottie to the performance every evening for the week Lotties keen appreciation pf the romantic leading man dashed bis hopes He never could hope to make love like 6alph RasQovar of the ClemI mons company and that was the el Lottie most admired He had a1 Tague idea of taking a course Jnr dramatic school but he could not spare the time from his business so he contended himself with studying thell methods 0f the leading men of the tenth rate companies that visited Un derrate and the mpre he studied the more hopeless he grew Leading men were tall and slender and had lark romantic eyes Wisner was short and inclined to plumpness andh1seycs were shrewd and gray shclralspdherThat was all right on the stage but ILotties gaze was disconcertingly frank at times and anyhow he would have to standonka footstool to gain the proper height and he was positive that at the critical moment he would fall off and spoil it all Lottie herself was just a shade too rounded In her curves to be called willowy and she too was below the medium height Taken by the large it seemed an Impossible task and the advent of each theatrical company seemed to set a higher standard by which his feeble efforts were to be judged Hubert BOllnlllgt n was the last Straw Ldttie caineinvay from the per formance of Won by a Vendetta de darIng that after having seen Bon nington all other lovemaking would seem tame and flat by comparison fJand not until the dawn broke did there come a ray of hope The company was playing not forty miles away on Saturday He might get Bonnlngton to let him come over and take some lessons He went to the store to see that It was opened and then he hurried to the Eta tion to catch the company when they should come over from the hotel Btfunington was one of the first to arrive ojn the station platform and Wisner made an immediate attack Around the corner of the depot he poured out the story of his troubles Sand to his credit Bonnlngton did not laugh My dear boy be said kindly if youre the right man and shes the right girl you dont need to study lovemaking Its never tbitf way in real life You watch a chance and take her off lior guard Then Poland say whatever conies Into your mind and shes jours YOu could years and dJr t f youd forget everything that you bad learned when It came to a showdown They Wouldnt stand for real proposals on the Stage and the reason we make love so well is that we dont care for the girl Thats how we can give all our attention to the lovemaking When the right time conies youll know itand you wont get down on your knees and say Be mine be mine Youll Just gather her in and its all over b ore you rehlize it Bonnin tan accepted the cigars that Wisner thrust upon him and Wisner went back to the store happy in the possession of expert opinion He paz zled oyer the comment thro gh the day mid when Lottie came in to see about some dress lining he gazed hungrily attthe flushed face and woiidered when the right time wpUld come Apparently it was not the right time yet for Lottig left the store with a bundle under her arm and Ids nearest approach to sentiment had been to cut the price of the lining 2 cents a yard j He h ughtora dozen clever speeches he might have made but not until sHe linU gone He was still thinking them over as he dressed the window that evening Wisner made a point of frequent changes in the display and every Fri day evening he fastened a canvas screen outside the plate glass and changcI the dressing running out to observe the effect be down the inner curtains manyitmes the screen content shoppers would be his display commenced to dress the window after removing the old stock when che corner of the screen was lifted end Lottles smiling face was seen through the glass Wiscdr smiled and nodded In reply to her greeting and he was about to beckon her to wait until he could join her or the sidewalk when his hand struck the stool on which rested the new p ice tags He ciught up the top one unpinned It on his coat striking an attit ide In imitation of the dummy formsILottie laughed at the sign which readH A Real Bargain at the Price and the end of the screen dropped For ohe awful moment Wisner thought that she hud been disgusted by the clownish appeal He cOuld not know that even eyes that are gray and unromantic can tell their s ory of love Lottie had read their plea and a moment later Wisner heard the store door open and close again and a moment later Lotties face appeared at the door to the winI dowII think Ill take that bargain Sidney she said aa her cheeks were y

Thats all any one ever knew about It Why Newell was bent on killing Dolbeare was a secret that neither gave out Anyway every one sympa thized with Dolbeare first because he maniwas r and t11rd- because he had the loveliest wife in the worjd and two of the prettiest chil ken Pike who had been sent for by trs Dolbeare found that lady waiting for him in the living room Ned she said Newell has

Dolbeare for a suit of her husbands clothes She gave bin what he wanted with anxious inquiry In her face but asked no questions Pike gave her no in formation Before daylight the next morning he had shaved off his beard and put on Dolbeares suit Then he drew his sombrero over his eyes look led at the clock examined his revolver and started at a slow pace down the road It was a cloudless crisp autumn mornjng The altitude was 7000 feet above sea level and the neighboring peaks stood out clear cut against the slowly lighting sky Presently the cowboy squatted behind a bush at the side of the road waited and watched Ten minutes later Newell turned a bend and appeared plainly lii sight Pike waited Newell came on Sud denly Pike left the bush and appeared In the road The moment Newell saw- him he raised his revolver and fired but without effect Then hefired two more shots and as he saw his enemy still advaneo unharmed he appeared to be astonished But at that moment Pike fired a shot This drew another from Newell making four Pike fired two shots In succession and Newell fired one Pike now had three shots in his rev lver to Newells one Pike stopped and appeared to be taking a deliberate aim His enemy fearing he would this time surely be hit fired his last shot Then Pike who had been walking slowly increased ills pace Newell throwing away his emptyrevolver put his hand to hIs hip drew another and began a rapid fusillade The hound muttered Pike between his teeth It was evident that Newell had lost his head It vras not surprising that he should He luuV tired nearly a dozen shots any one of which he felt sure when he fired It would bring down his man Yet that tuna kept advancing apparently getting no nearer But pres ently the shots began to whistle about Pikes head though so great was his enemys notation that none of them told Suddenly Pike stood still took clciP enite nlP and shot his man through the forehead While Mrs nolbl re wns dressing for breakfast she was told bat Pike wished to see her Throwing ow a wrapper she went to meet him with a pula face and iuquirin eyes Its all right Mrs Dolbeare li said How What Is it Oh It was easy enough When these
