could speak that a desperate looking
man—a burglar, she yvas certain,
and a convict as well by the cut of
lii3 hair—had feloniously entered
her house a moment before she
come ojid, walking boldly into her
library, had been locked safely
therein by herself.
“Tiie windows are nailed down. 1
have been waiting for Perry to open
them, so he cannot escape that
way,” she concluded.
“I expected Arnos on the last
train. I don’t ace what is keeping
him,” said Mrs.%mead, <f but he has
not come yet.”
“Neither has Perry, bat perhaps
they will come together. Isn’t it
dreadful? I daren’t go back with
that man in the house. I know by
his looks he is a murderer. Our

h, if Mr. Smead were only here!”
“I guess I’ll do just as well,” said
Mrs. Smead coldly. “I will take
our revolver, and you can bring the
stove, lifter, and we will interview
him through the door.”
“But what good will that do ? He
may s-h-o-o-t first!”
“Come on,” said Mrs. Smead con
temptuously. She was only a young
matron herself, but she was not go

to her neighbor’s cottage. No oth

had all the fun to themselves.

Waited For Himself.
One of the la test a nd best stories
of absentmindeducss concerns a
Pennsylvania professor. Toeing call
ed out on some urgent matter re
cently and expecting to be engaged
for some hours, he affixed a notice
to the door of Lis private sanctum
slating that be would not be back
till 3 o’clock in the afternoon. As
it. happened, lie was able to get away
earlier and arrived back at his cham
bers a little lie fore 2 o’clock. See
ing his own notice, which, he had
quite forgotten, on the door, he re»
it carefully. When he had tho
oughly digested its contents, he tor
a seat on the stairs and waited p
tientlv until 3 o’clock.
Late FsM Plowing.
Late In the fall, when the weeds have
f matured, there is probably no great ad
vantage in turning them under. In
faot, there may be an advantage in
leaving the land unplowed during the
winter, since the stubble and we^ds
will catch the snow and thus increase
the supply of moisture In the soil.
But with a wet spring this factor may
work to disadvantage. As a rule, fall
plowed land gets into workable condi
tion earlier than spring plowed land
and may be planted earlier in the
spring; also it is usually possible to
plow the land late in the fall, when It
Is In better condition for plowing than
tt may be early in the spring.

GRANT AND PETERSBURG.
Where the Confederate Forces Lost u
Grant determined to cross the James
at Wilcox’s Landing, u-u miles below
City Point and entirely out of Lee s
observation, and to move thence di
rectly upon Petersburg with his whole
army. He would thus pass in rear of
Butler and attack the extreme richt
flank of the Confederate tine, which
it' was certain would now be field by
only a stnaii -force. It inve-'.t-d the
perform;!nee of a r-’nt in
Uon which had r.c- c- l ,n oe *w;«nied

Me without days of delay.
It was ail acco^iplbiicd -,v.::.oi.l ;r::-
top and 1-1 such an r:;. re libiy ih —
time that Lee refused for ihn e days
believe it. During these 1’wee days,

was arriving at and nn.-iekinir Peters

But for til's Lonc~*reel's cor; ? mlcht

tersburg when Grant s troops first ap
peared before them, and it is not too
much to claim that his defeat would
have been not less bloody and disas
trous than was the one at. Cold Har
bor, for. while the intronrhmcr.ts at
Cold Harbor were the poorest and
slightest in which we over fought, the
Petersburg lines had been built a year
before and were of the best character,
with some guns of position mounted
and all the forest in front cleared
away to give range to the artillery.
This, then, was really tho nearest
approach to “a crisis” wbich occurred
during the war Instead of “success
elsewhere.” Giant here escaped a sec
ond defeat more bloody and more over
whelming than any preceding. Thus
the last and perhaps the best chances
of Confederate success were not lost
In the repulse of Gettysburg uor in any
combat of arms. They ware lost dor
ing three days of lying in camp, be
lievlng that Grant was hemmed to by
the broad part of the James below
City Point and had nowhere to go but
to come and attack us. The entire
credit for the strategy belongs, I be
lieve to Grant, though possibly it may
be shared by his chief of staff, Hum
phreys, whose modest narrative makes
no reference to the subjeet.-GenersI

Vinol is not a patent medicine—but a
preparation composed of the medicinal
elements of cods’ livers, combined with
a tonic Iron and wine. Vlnol creates
a hearty appetite, tones up the organs
of digestion and makes rich, red blood.
In this natural manner, Vlnol creates
strength for the run-down, over

Vinol is unexcelled.

Weak and unhealthy kidneys are re
sponsible for mnch sickness andsnffering,
therefore, if kidney
trouble is permitted t*
continue, serious re
sults are most likely
to follow. Your other
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
neys most, because
they do most and
should have attentioa
-————”'0 first. Therefore, when
your kidneys are weak or out of order,
you can understand how quickly your en
tire body is affected and how every organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or “ feel badly,” begin
taking the great kidney remedy, Dr.
Kilmer’s Swamp-Root. A trial will con

The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root, the great kidney and
