— "I have been at work among the sick

whenever 1 have used Vinol for run
down, weak or emaciated patients, they
have been visibly benefited by it One
patient a young woman, was so weak
and ill she could hardly creep to my door
for aid, and was leaning on a friend’s
arm. I supplied Vinol to her liberally
and in a month when she returned to
thank me I hardly recognized her. She
was strong, her color charming and her
cheeks rounded out These words are
uttered from my heart, in order that
more people may know about Vinol, as
there is nothing makes me happier in

Glenwish Johnson snt In the private
office of the Acme-Johnson Grocery
company, of which commanding es
tablishment ho was president and prac
tically sole owner.
Curtis, the confidential young man of
Johnson's own business rearing, was
with him, as usual, nt this hour—4
o'clock—to receive his superior's final
instructions for the day.
“Well," concluded Air. Johnson in
that Icy tone the meaning of which
none knew better than Curtis, “that's

I’m tired of it,"
Curtis smiled and nodded ns he shut
down the top of his chief’s desk. The
latter had turned to go, but stopped
"By Jove!" he exclaimed. “I almost
forgot My little girl Is twenty-one to
day." The diplomatic Curtis merely
smiled his congratulations. "Hnnd me
my private check book, Curt," ordered
Johnson. “I'll take It home with me."

Edna, Glenwish Johnson’s daughter,
alighted from her electric car and
briskly entered his part of the house.
"I should like to see Miss Grace
Harden, Mr. Thran’s stenographer,"
she said sweetly.
“Right in there, lady,” he said,
pointing toward the inner office.
“Hello, Edna,” came Thran’s voice,
cheery anil cordial. "What on earth

Thran patted the girl’s cheek with
the familiarity of a very old friend
and ceremoniously bowed himself out
of his own office, softly closing the
door behind him. Presently, however,
the door of the private office opened
and Edna stood at the threshold, her
face rather pale and her pose unsteady
“Please come in, Mr. Thran,” she
Mr. Thran re-entered his sanctum
only to find that his troubles had just
begun. His young stenographer was
huddled In her chair disturbingly near
the verge of tears
“I can’t do a thing with her, Mr.
Thran,” begnn Edna fiercely. “I do
wish you would make her do It; 1
“What Is it, Edna?" he inquired, with
"The whole thing In a nutshell is
this: Mr. Mnrden, this foolish girl’s fa
ther, owes papa $5,000, and if it isn’t
paid before 3 o'clock today papa says
he will foreclose the mortgage or some
thing, and Grace and Uncle Bully John
Marden will be homeless. Now, I was
twenty-one yesterday, and papa gave
me a cheek for $5,000 as a birthday
gift 1 was so happy about It, know
ing that It would just cover the amount
Uncle John owes papa, and now Grace
—Grace—she won’t take it. Please
make her take it, Mr. Thran.”
“Please, Mr. Thran,” now came ap
pealingly from the other girl, “please
do not try to make me do this thing.
God knows I appreciate Edna’s motives,
and I love ber all the more for her
kindly intentions. But I cannot take
this money from her.”
“Edna.” be said very tenderly, “you
are a very kind, dear girl, and I am
proud to know you. But you do not
understand, my dear. I am truly very
sorry for both of you.”
Johnson would gladly have paid the
five thousand himself, but was afraid
of that man Curtis. After twelve years
of patient work to make a real busi
ness mun out of bis young confiden
tial man Johnson did not dare to make
eo sentimental a proposition.
So he bad carefully planned it all.
had presented Edna with the check
and an admonition to Invest It as she
saw fit and tben dexterously apprised
her of Marden's indebtedness to him
and the inevitable consequences of a
failure to meet the note the next day.
Jobnson only heard of tbe miscar
riage of bis plan at about 2 o'clock
that afternoon. Returning to bis pri
vate office from luncheon at that hour,
be found bis daughter on the verge of
tears, with the check In her hand.
"Oh. papa. Grace won’t take the
check, won't let me help her—me. her
He turned to his daughter, smiling
grimly. The girl placed the piece of
paper she hud beeD bolding In bis
“Come along with me. dearie. You
do not have to ask Grace Marden or
any one else to pay that note. All you
need do is to go over to the bank and
pay it. But as my check Is not certi

grateful bug and kiss, and they
traversed the outer offices. Glen John

teller’s window of one of New York’s
largest banking institutions.
“How do you do, Mr. Johnson?”
greeted tbe innn behind the bars re
"All right," responded the other cor
dially. “You have a note here for col-
lectiou. $5,000. John Harden, maker, to
my order. This lady wishes to puy it.
Want me to certify It?"
The note teller scrutinized the check.
"Oh," remarked Smith, still smiling
nmuscdly, "the check Is all right, of
course, but 1 cau’t take it Tho note
bus been paid, Mr. Johnson."
Most unusual thing about this col
lection." resumed the teller. "It seems
everybody wants to pay It. You are
tho third party to attempt to do so. It
wasn't more than ten minutes ago that
Miss Grace Mnrden came In to pay it.
She presented n certified check signed
by Chnrles Thran"—
"Oh, Mr. Thran!" Interposed Edna
gleefully. "So he pnhl It himself. Isn't
that noble of him?"
Mr. Tlirnn’s Intentions were good,"
proceeded the teller, “but he woh too
late by nt lenst half an hour: blit, of
course," and here the teller risked a
sly wink nt Edna's father,’"you know
who renlly paid It, Mr. Johnson.”
I! I!" exploded the latter. "Do you
think I enine over here with my daugh
ter to make a fool of myself?"
“1—I—really, I beg your pardon,”
stammered Smith. "But nnturnlly 1
thought you knew when your own Mr.
Curtis paid the note."
It's all right. Mr. Smith.” muttered
Johnson, stroking his brow. “Come,
Edun. let us go.”
Johnson was still nervously clutching
his daughter’s hand as they passed
through tbe outer offices of the Acme-
Johnson Grocery company.
Just before lie ushered the girl Into
the private office he ordered tho office
boy to send In Mr. Curtis nt once. The
culprit entered with his usual placid
"Hear nnythlng about tho Marden
note?" nslced Johnson lendingly.
“Y’es, sir,” replied Curtis dryly. "The
note has been paid.”
"Oh, It has, has It?" nsked the chief
sarcastically. "How do you know that
since you haven't been to the bank to
The smile on the confidential young
man’s face was serene.
“I've been nt tbe bank, Mr. Johnson,'
he said calmly. “I went there for the
purpose of paying the Marden note.”
“And you paid it?”
"I paid it”
“You paid it.” repented Johnson
riled by the other’s nonchalance. "We
know you paid It. but why? You—in
heaven’s name! Why did you pay it?
There is something behind all this
and I want to know It"
"There is a great deal behind it, Mr
Johnson,” admitted Curtis cheerfully
"My life’s happiness is behind it.
Grace Mnrden has promised to become
"And you thought you would do a
very wise thing by paying her father’s
note?” demanded Johnson.
"I thought so," replied the young
man with just the slightest note of
doubt in his voice. Tbe elder man
turned abruptly to Uis desk.
"I am sure," Boothed bis daughter,
“that yon are to be congratulated, Mr.
Curtis. And your paying the note was
a very noble act"
“Tbank you,” replied CurtlB sheep
ishly as he took tbe dainty hand she
Ungnllantly and ungratefully, be
wished tbe radiant young woman
showering him with appreciation
would suffei him to get away or—bet
ter yet—would depart berself and leave
him to have it out with her imperious,
heartless father nlone.
But suddenly Johnson rose to his
feet. The young assistant’s worried
expression gave way to a triumphant
grin at sight of the changed counte
nance of his chief, for the good, old
fighting gleam shone In those eyes once
more. Johnson handed the young man
a check he had written.
"Now, listen here, Curt" he said
sharply. Curtis knew the tone and
hearkened attentively. “This is an or
der, and if it isn’t earried out to the
letter I’ll fire you.” Johnson’s gray
eyes softened bb he continued: ’’Curt,
you have put your good self in a fix.
Bully John’s daughter Is too proud to
stand for what you have just dona
Don't 1 know tbe girl? Now, boy, you
go o^er to the bank and stop that fool

protest. “Listen to sense, will yon,

come back here with that abominable
note. And tben it's my move. I'll
write Marden a letter, agreeing to ex
tend that Infernal note of his another
four months. I’ll tell him—er—any
thing—changed my mind or something.
Well, never mind what I tell him;
that's none of your business Dor,"
turning to his daughter, who hud
laughed audibly, "any of yours either,
madam. That saves the girl’s pride
and relieves the old man's anxiety.
Now. listen to me, you two—two—well,
never mind!" for Edna had laughed Ir
reverently again. “1 want you to know
this much. I pay the $5.1X10—do you
get that? I—Glenwish Johnson—und
no other living man. or woman either!
Now. Curt, scoot!"
Curtis huvlng "scooted." father and
daughter faced each other with a new
and better understanding.
"I am so proud of you.” she mur
mured. Glen Johnson caught the tears
in her voice even before he saw them
on her cheeks
“You mustn't cry about it. girlie." he
But she did cry about It. while her
happy father held her very close to his
breast, for lie knew that every tear she
sherl was a token of her uew love and
reverence for himself.

Portugal is to-day in a singular situ
ation in reference to tho groat war
German forces have invaded Portuguese
Angola, on the western coast of Afri
ca, and fighting has been going on there
between German and Portuguese force
for a couple of months, yet Germany
has not declared war on Portugal, the
German minister remains in Lisbon and
the Portuguese minister is still in Ber
Fresh Portuguese troops, numbering
about 4,00(1, are ready to embark for
Angola. Some orders for equipment
have been placed in the United States,
One explanation of this curiouB situs
tion is that Germany has hesitated to
take the decisive step by declaring war,
because the 210 German vessels now in
terned in Portuguese ports would auto
matically become prizes of war.
The relations between Great Britain
and Portugal are peculiar. According
to the treaty signed in 1002, after the
Boer war, during which the British had
scrupulously observed the neutrality of
Delagoa Bay, it was agreed that Brit
ish troops might pass through Portu
guese territory in Africa, and that
Portuguese troops might pass through
British territory there, and that both
nations would combine to protect the
territory of either if menaced by a
third Hostile nation. Thus the Portu
guese and British colonieB are at war
with the German colonieB in Africa,
while in Europe Portugal and Germany
are at peace.

Reliable evidence is abundant that women
are constantly being restored to health by
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
The many testimonial letters that we are continually pub
lishing in the newspapers—hundredsof them—are all genu
ine, true and unsolicited expressions of heartfelt gratitude
for the freedom from suffering that has come to these
women solely through the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is honest and true—if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names and
addresses arc always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
Cam dun, N.J.—“1 was sick for two years with nervous spells, and
my kidneys were affected. I had a doctor all the time and used a
galvanic buttery, but nothing did me any good. I was not able to go
to bed, but spent my time on a couch or in a sleeping-chair,and soon
became almost a skeleton. Finally my doctor wont away for his
health, and my husband heard of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Compound and got mo some. In t wo months I got relief and now I
am like a new woman anil am at my usual weight. I recommend
your medicine to every one and so does my husband.”—Mrs. Tillub
Waters, 1135 Knight St., Camden, N.J.
And this one from Mrs. Haddock:
Utioa, Ok i. a.—“I was weak and nervous, not aide to do my work
and scarcely able t-o he oil my feet. I had backache, headache, palpi
tation of the heart, trouble with my bowels, and inflammation. Since
taking the Lydia E. Pinkham’s vegetable Compound I am better
than I have been for twenty years. 1 think it. is a wonderful medi
cine and 1 have recommended it to others.”—Mrs. Mary Ann Had
dock, Utica, Oklahoma.
Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others—why should it fail in your case?
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been tlui standard remedy for fe
male ills. No one sick with woman’s ailments
does justice to herself if she does not, try this fa
mous medicine made from roots uml herbs, it
lias restored so many Buffering women to health.
