word, handed it to his friend.
The note was as follows:
"I am going away, as I told you I
■would if he came He Is coming.
Tuesday I got a letter from him. It
•was written at Kingston, Jamaica, al-
most three months ago I can't think
why 1 haven't got It sooner, but sup-
pose It was given to some oae to
mail and lorgotten. In It he said he
was tired of going to sea and was com-
ing home to me. 1 had money, he
eald, and we could get along He had
shipped aboard a brig bound for Sa-
vannah, and from there he was going
to try for a berth on a Boston-bound

coming back. I could not stand the
disgrace and I could not see him. Vou
and Grace won't need me any more
now. Don't worry about me 1 can
always earu a living while 1 have my
♦itrenglh. Please don't worry. If he
conies tell him I have gone you do
not know where. That will be true,
for you don't. I hope you will be
very happy. I do hope so Oh, John,
you don't know how I hate to do this,
hut I must. Don't tell Nat. He would
do something terrible to him If be
came, and Nat knew. Just say I have
been called away and may be back
eome time. Perhaps I may. Love to
nil. Good by. Yours truly,
The captain stared at the note. Then
he threw it to the floor and started
for the door. The minister sprang
from his chair and called to him.
"Nat," he cried. "Nat! Stop! where
are you going?"
"(Join'?" be growled. "Goin'? I'm
Koin' to find her, first of all. Then
I'm comin' back to wait for him."
"Hut you won't have to wait. He'll
never come. He's dead."
"Dead? Dead? By the everlastin'!
this has been too much for you, I
ought to have known It. I'll send the
doctor here right off I can't stay
myself. I've got to go. But "
"Listen! listen to me! Ansel Cof-
fin is dead, I tell you. I know It. I
know all about it. That was what I
wanted to see you about. Did Keziah
tell you of the San Jose and the sailor
who died of smallpox in this very
building? In that room there?"
"Yes. John, you "
"I'm not raving. It's the truth. That
*ailor was Ansel Coffin. I watched
with him and one night, the night
belore he died, he spoke Kezlnli's
name. He spoke of New Bedford and
of Trumet and of her, over and over
again. I was sure who he was then,
but I called In Ebenezer Cap'en, who
used to know Coffin in N w Bedford.
And he recognized him. Nat, as sure
as you and I are here this minute,
Ansel Coffin, Aunt Keziah's husband,
is burieJ In the Trumet cemetery."
In Which Mr. Stone Washes
Mr. Abner Stope, of Stone & Bark-
er, marine outfitters and ship chan-
dlers, with a place of business on
Commercial street in Boston, and a
bank account which commanded re-
spect throughout the city, was feel-
ing rather irritable and out of sorts.
Poor relations'are always a nuisance.
Mr. Stone had "washed his hands"
of his cousin, Keziah Coffin, or
thought he had. After her brother
Solomon died she had written to him.
asking him to find her a position of
some kind In Boston. "I don't want
money, I don't want charity," wrote
Keziah. "What I want is work. Can
you get it for me, Abner? I write
because father used to tell of what
you said to him about gratitude and
how you would never rest until you
had done something in return for what
he did for you."
Captain Ben Hall's kindness was the
one thing Mr. Stone forgot when he
said no one had ever helped him. He
disliked to be reminded of it. It was
a long while ago and the captain was
dead. However, being reminded, he
had called upon a friend in the tailor-
ing line and had obtained for Keziah
the place of sewing woman. She de-
cided to become housekeeper at tli
Trumet parsonage and so notified
him. Then he washed his hands of
But now he was compelled to soil
them again. Keziah had appeared at
his office, without warning, and de-
manded that hp find her a position
"Demanded" was the proper word.
Certainly she had not begged. She
seemed to feel that her demand was
right and proper, and his acceding to
it the least he could do.
"What a fine place you've got here,
Abner!" she said, inspecting the office
and store. "I declare it's finer than
the one you had wjien you first went
into business, afore you failed. I wish
father could have lived to see It.
He'd have realized that his Judgment
was good, even though his investment
Captain Hall had invested largely
In that first business, the one which
failed. Mr. Stone changed the sub-
ject. Later in the day he again sought
his friend, the tailor, and Keziah was
installed in the loft of the latter's
Washington street shop, beside the
other women and girls who sewed and
sewed from seven in the morning un-
til six at night. Mr. Stone had left
her there and come away, feeling that
an unpleasant matter was disposed
of. He had made some inquiries as to
where she intended staying, even add-
ed a halt-hearted invitation to dinner
that evening at his home. But she
"No, thank you, Abner," she said,
"I'm goin' to find a boardin' place and
I'd just as soon nobody knew where
I was for the present. And there's
one thing I want to ask you: don't
tell a soul 1 am here. Not a soul. If
anyone should come askln' for me.
don't give 'em any satisfaction. I'll
tell you why some day, perhaps. I
This was what troubled Mr. Stone
as he sat In his office. Why should
this woman wish to have her where-
abouts kept a secret? There was a
reason for this, of course. Was it a
respectable reason, or the other kind?
If the latter, his own name might be
associated with the scandal. He wish
ed, for the fiftieth time, that there
were no poer relations.
A boy came Into the office. "There
Is some one here to see you, Mr.
Stone." he said.
"Who is It?"
"I don't know, sir Looks like
seafaring man, a sea captain, I should
say—but he won't give his name. Says
it's Important and nobody but you'll
"Humph! All right. Tell him to
wait. I'll be out In a minute."
Sea captains and ship owners were
Stone & Barker's best customers. The
senior partner emerged from the of-
fice with a smile on his face.
"Ah!" he said, extending his hand
"Glad to see you. Captain—er "
"Hammond," replied the visitor.
"Same to you, Mr. Stone."
"Fine weather for this time of
"Fine enouglv, Mr §tone."
"Well. Captain Hammond, what can
we do for you? Going to sail soon?"
"Not right away. Just made port,
less'n a week ago. Home looks good
to me, for a spell, anyhow."
"So? Yes, I have no doubt. Let
me tee—where is your home, cap-
tain? I should remember, of course,
"Don't know why you should. This
Is my first trip In your latitude, i
guess. My home's at Trumet."
"Trumet?" Mr. Stone's ton* chang-
"Yes. Trumet, down on the Cape.
Brer been there? We think it's about
as good a place as there Is."
"Hu-u-m! Trumet? Well, Captain
Hammond, you wished to see me, I
understand." * \
"Yes. Fact Is, Mr. Stone, I want
to ask you where I can find Mrs. Ke-
zlah Coffin. She's a relation of yours,
I b'lieve, and Bhe's come to Boston
lately. Only yesterday or the day
afore. Can you tell me where she
"Why do you wish to see her?"
"Oh, for reasons, personal ones.
She's a friend of mine."
"I see. No, captain, I can't tell you
where she is. Good morning."
Captain Nat was greatly disappoint-
"Hold on there, just a minute," he
begged. "This Is Important, you un-
derstand, Mr. Stone. I'm mighty anx-
ious to find Kezi—Mrs. Coffin. We
thought, some of her friends and I.
that most likely you'd know where
she was. Can't you give us any help
at all? Hasn't she been here?"
"Good morning. Captain Hammond.
You must excuse me, I'm busy."
He went into the office and closed
the door. Captain Nat rubbed his
forehead desperately, i He had been
almost sure that Abner Stone would
put him on Keziah's track. Grace had
thought so, too. She remembered
what the housekeeper had told con-
cerning her Boston cousin and how
the latter had found employment for
her when she containplated leaving
Trumet, after her brother's death.
Grace believed that Keziah would go
to htm at once.
Nat walked to the door and stood
there, trying to think what to do next.
A smart young person, wearing a con-
spicuous suit of clothes, aided and
abetted by a vivid waistcoat and a
pair of youthful but promising side
whiskers, came brlskl>*along the side-
walk and stopped in front of him.
"Well, sir?" observed this person,
with cheerful condescension. "Any-
thing I can do for you?"
Captain Nat turned his gaze upon
the side whiskers and the waistcoat.
"Hey?" he queried.
"I say, is there anything I can do
The captain shoolj his head
"No-oo," he drawled dryly, "I'm afraid
not, son. I admit that don't seem
scarcely possible, but I am afraid it's
"Looking for something in our line,
"Well, I don't know. What might
be on your line—clothes?"
The bewhiskered one drew himself
up "I am connected with Stone &
Barker," he said sharply. "And. see-
ing you standing In our doorway, I
thought possibly "
"Yes, yes. Beg your pardon, I'm
sure. No, I don't want to buy any-
thing. I come to see Mr. Stone on a
"He's busy, I suppose."
"So he says."
The young man smiled with serene
satisfaction. "I'm not surprised," he
observed complacently. "We are a
busy house, Mr.—er "
"Hammond's tuy name. Are you Mr.
"No-o, my name Is Prince."
"So? Silent partner in the firm,
"No-o, not exactly." Mr. Prince was
slightly embarrassed. "No, I am a—
a salesman—at present. Was the mat-
ter you wished to see Mr. Stone about
a very private one?"
"Well, I asked because Mr. Stone
Is a busy man and we like to save
him all the—the "
"Trouble you can, hey? That's nice
of you, you must save him a lot, Mr
—er—King, was it?"
"Sure and sartin', Prince, of course
"She Is with James Hallett It Co.,

Stone found a place for her there, I
believe. I—er—er—superintended tha
carrying of her valise and— What?"
"Nothln", nothln'. Hun! Hallett &
Co.. tailors? What number Washln'-
ton street did you say?"
Mr. Prince gave tho number.
"Thank you a lot," said Captain
Nat, with fervor. "Good-by, Mr. Prince.
Hope the next time I come you'll be
in the firm Good day, sir."
"Good day. Nothing else I can do?
And you won't wait for Mr. Stone?
Very good. Is there any message for
him that you would like to leave?"
"Hey?" Nat had started to go, but
now lie paused and turned. There was
a griin twinkle in his eye. "Message?"
he repeated. "Why, ye-es, I don't
know but there Is. You just give Mr.
Stone Cap'n Hammond's compliments
and tell him I'm lookin' forward to
interviewfii' him some time. Just tell
him that, will you?"
"I'll tell him. Glad to have met
you, Captain Hammond."
In the workshop of Hallet & Co.,
Kezlah sat sewing busily. The win-
dow near her was closed, stuck fast,
and through the dingy panes she
could see only roofs and chimneys.
The other women and girls near her
chatted and laughed, but she was si-
lent. She did not feel like talking,
certainly not like laughing The gar-
ment she was at work on was a coat,
a wedding coat, so the foreman had
told her, with a smile; therefore she
must be very particular. The narrow
stairway leading up to the workshop
ended in a little boxed-in room where
the finished garments were hung to
await the final pressing. From be-
hind the closed door of this room
came the sound of voices, apparently
in heated argument. One of these
voices was that of Larry, the errand
boy. Larry was speaking shrilly and
with emphasis. The other voice Was
lower in key and the words were in-
"No, sir, you can't," declared Larry
"You can't, I tell you. The boss don't
let nobody In there and— Hold on!
The other voice made a short but
evidently earnest answer. Larry again
expostulated. The workers looked up
from their sewing. The door opened
and Larry appeared, flushed and ex

NEED OF CARPETS FOR ROADS
English Expert Recommends Use of
an "Elastic Skin" on the
A lecture was recently delivered by
a member of the board before the
Royal Institute of London on "The
Road—Past, Present and Future," ac-
cording to Consular and Trade Re
ports. The lecturer said the problem
was to find the best mode by which a
road should be constructed so that its
surface would not be broken by traf-
fic, so that the transit might be easier
for both passengers and goods, a road
which would form neither puddle
holes nor exude mud from vehicles
and create no dust when the weather
One thing was universally recog-
nized, that the road of the future
should be a truly bound road In which,
whatever kind of stone was used the
stone should be held together so that
It would form a crust The lecturer
suggested that what he called a car-
pet or an elastic skin should be adopt-
ed as the covering
The carpet, he thought, should be
made of bituminous material mixed
with sand and placed on the roads in
various thicknesses, according to the
nature of the traffic. It should go on
in liquid form, solidifying quickly, but
always remaining resilient and com-
pressible, and so Integrating with the
crust of the surface below
The advantage of such a carpet. It
was said, would be to permanently ,
protect the crust, and. Just as a carpet
on the floor softens the step, so would
this carpet for the roads silence the
noise and reduce the shock of rolling
vehicles. It was admitted that the or-
iginal cost of a road so laid would be
more than that of a mud bound road,
but spreading the cost over a series
of years it Would probably not be so
great, since the crust of the road It-
•self would not have to be renewed

Women Are Constantly Being Restored to
Health by Lydia E. Pinkham's
"Worth mountains of gold," says one woman. Another
says, "I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound for all the other medicines for women in the
world." Still another writes, " I should like to have the
merits of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound thrown
on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could
read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills."
We could fill a newspaper ten tiir.ee the size of this with such quo-
tations taken from the letters we have received front grateful women
whose health has been restored ai.d suffering banished by Lydia &
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound accomplished
such a universal success? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on
doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for more
than :!0 years ?
Simply and surely because of its sterling worth. The reason no
other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim-
ply because there is no other medicine so good for women's ills.
Here are two letters that just came to the writer's desk—only two
of thousands, but both tell a comforting story to every suffering wo-
man who will read them—and be guided by them.
