the dainties he had enumerated.
"Here yon are!" lie cleared his throat
Impressively, while benignity shone
from every feature of his face "A

It was not the loss of his money
that Hannibal most feared, and the
coin passed from his possession Into
his host's custody.
• "Thank you, my boy! 1 must step
down to the tavern when 1 return,
please God, we shall know more or
each other." While he was still
speaking, he had produced a Jug from
behind the quilt that screened his
bed, and now took himself off into the
Left alone, Hannibal gravely seated
himself at the table. What the
judge's larder lacked In variety it
more than made up for in quantity,
and the boy was grateful for this fact.
Presently he heard the Judge's heavy,
shuttling step as he came up the path
from the road, and a moment later
his gross bulk of body tilled the door-
way Breathing hard and persplrlug,
the Judge entered the shanty, but his
eagerness kept him silent until he
had established himself in tils cnair
beside the table, with the Jug and a
cracked glass at his elbow Thou,
bland and smiling, he turned toward

and be nodded over the rim of the
cracked glass his shaking baud had
carried to his lips Twice the glass
w;-.s tilled and emptied, and then
again, hi roving, watery eyes rested
meditatively on the child. "Have you
a father?" he asked suddenly Han-
nibal shook his head. ' A mother?"
"They both of thetn done died
years and years ago." answered the
boy. 1 can't tell y< u how long back
it was, but 1 reckon I don't know
much about It. 1 must have been a
small child '
Ho—a small child!" cried the
Judge, laughing He cocked his head
on one side and surveyed Hannibal

ic seriousness "In God's name what

"I'm most ten," aid Hannibal, with

there's the pity of It! The social
fabric is tottering—I can see it tot-
ter—" and he tottered himself as he
said this. 9
"Well, I'm an old man—the spec-
tacle won't long offend ine. I'll die
presently." He was so profoundly
moved by the thought that he could
not go on. His voice broke, and he
buried his fare In his arms. A sym-
pathetic moisture had gathered In the
child's eyes. He slipped from his
chair and stole to the Judge's side.
"I'm mighty sorry you're going to
' Bless you, Hanntnal!" cried the
judge, looking wonderfully cheerful,
despite his recent bitterness of spirit.
I'm not experiencing any or the pangs
of mortality now. My dissolution ain't
a matter of tonight or tomorrow—
there's some life in Slocum Price yet,
for all the rough usage, eh? 1 think
you'd better go to bed."
"1 reckon I had," agreed Hannibal,
slipping from his chair.
"Well, take my bed back of the
quilt. You'll find a hoe there. You
can dig up the dirt under the shuck
tick with it—which helps astonishing
ly. What would the world say If it
could know that Judge Slocum Price
makes his bed with a hoe!"
Hannibal retired behind the quilt.
"Do you find It comfortable?" the
Judge asked, when the rustling or the
shuck tick informed him that the
child had lain down.
"Yes, sir," said the boy.
"Have you said your prayers?" in-
quired the Judge.
"No, sir. I ain't said 'ein yet."
"Well, say them now. Religion is

"Oh, be reasonable, Solomon. You'd

way of answer, Mahaffy shot him a
contemptuous glance. "Take a chair
—do, Solomon!" entreated the Judge.
"When did I ever sneak a Jug into
my shanty?" asked Mahaffy sternly,
evidently conscious of entire recti-
tude in this matter.
"I deplore your choice or words,
Solomon." said the judge. "You know
damn well that if you'd been here I
couldn't have got past your place
with that jug! But let's deal with
conditions. Here's the Jug, with some
liquor left in it here's a glass. Now
what more do you want?"
Mr. Mahaffy drew near the table.
"Sit down," urged the Judge
"1 hope you feel mean?" said Ma-
"If it's any satisfaction to you, 1
do," admitted the Judge.
"You ought to." Mahaffy drew for-

and for the same reason, but sour and
bitter with the world, believing al-

"Nobody knew, and be wasn't con-

the doctor had looked to his cuts, the

on down tho Elk."
It occurred to the Judge that he
himself had news to Impart. He must
account for the boy's presence.

Mahaffy put down his glass.
"You were like this once before,"
he said darkly. But at that Instant
the shuck tick rattled noisily at some
movement of the sleeping boy. Ma-
haffy quitted his chair, and crossing
the loom, drew the quilt aside. A
giance sufficed to assure him that in
part, at lea6t, the judge spoke the
There was a hoof-beat on the road.
It came nearer and nearer, and pres-
ently sounded just beyond the door.
Then it ceased, and a voice said;
"Hullo, there!" Th« judge scram-
bled to his feet, and taking up the
candle, staggered Into the yard. Ma-
haffy followed him.
"What's wanted?" asked the Judge
holding his candle aloft. The light
showed a tall fellow mounted on a
handsome bay horse. It was Murrell.
"Have either of you gentlemen seen
a boy go through here today?" Mt'ir-
rell glanced from one to the other.
Mr Mahaffy's thin Hps twisted them-
selves into a sarcastic smile. He
turned to the judge, who spoke up
"Did he carry a bundle and rlBe?"
he asked. Murrell gave eager ass«?nt.
"Well," said the Judge, "he stopOed

manner were rather stern. "Hanni-
bal. a man rode by here last nigh', on
a big bay horse. He said he was
looking for a boy about ten years old
—a boy with a bundle and rllle."
There was an awful pause. "Who was
that man, Hannibal?"
"It were Captain Murrell." The
judge raised his list and brought it
down with a great crash on the ta-
ble. "We don't know any boy ten
years old with a rifle and bundle!"
"I'lease—you won't let him take me
away, judge—I want to stop with
you!" cried Hannibal He sl'pped
from his chair, and passing about the
table, seized the Judge by the hand.
The Judge was visibly affected.
"No!" he roared. "He shan't have

"No," said Hannibal. "He tried to
get me away from my Uncle Bob."
"Where Is your Uncle Bob?"
"He's dead." And the child began
to weep bitterly. The judge bent
and lifted him Into his lap.
"There, my son—-" he said sooth-
ingly. "Now you tell me when he
died, and all about it."
"He were killed. It were only yes-
terday, and 1 can't forget him. 1

he urged gently In a voice broken
by sobs, the child began the story
or their flight, a confused narrative.
The judge shuddered. "Can such
things be," he murmured at last. Then
he remembered what Mahaffy had
told bim of the man on the raft.
"Hannibal," he said, "Solomon Ma-
haffy, who was here last night, told
me he saw down at tho river land-

A BILOOD MEDICINE WITHOUT ALCOHOL.
Recently it has been definitly proven by experiments on animals that alcohol
lowers the germicidal power of the body and that alcohol paralyzes the white cor-
puscles of the blood and renders them unable to take up and destroy disease germs.
Disease germs cause the death of over one-half of the human race.
A blood medicine, made entirely without alcohol, which is a pure glyceric ex-
tract of roots, such as IHoodroot, Queen's root, Golden Seal root, Mandrake anil
Stone root, has been extensively sold by druggists for the past forty years as Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. The refreshing influence of this extract is like
Nature's influence—the blood is bathed in the tonic which gives life to the blood—
the vital fires of the body burn brighter and their increased activity consumes tha
tiscue rubbish which has accumulated during the winter.
Dr. R. V. Pierce, the founder of tho Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute, and a physician of large experience and
practice, was the first to make up an Altkrativb Extract of
roots, without a particle of alcohol or narcotio.
"It Is with thepreat^tof pleasure, that I write to let you know of
tha frreut benefit I received from the use of your medicines and self-
treatment at hone," writes Mrs. Wm. IlEYiis, of Lady smith, B.C. " I suf-
fered for three years from a running: Bor«.'. Consulted four doctors but
yf' they failed to mend or give relief. Finally I was told I was In consump-
tion and would have to consult a specialist concerning my ear, that tn«
dead bone must be cut out before the wound would heal. A kind friend
advised me to write to I)r. Pierce, which I did, and after s^ven month®*
use of the treatment tho soro is healed, and I enjoy better health than I
ever did. 1 drneeed the wound with Dr. Pierce's All-Healing Salve and
took t.he 'Golden Medical Discovery' and 4 Pleasant Pellets' for mjf
troubles. I shall always recommend your medicines.
