Have you ever stopped to rea on why
it i* that *o many product* that are ex-
tensively advertised, all at once drop out
of light and are soon forgotten? The
reason is plain—the article aid not fulfill
the promises of the manufacturer. This
applies more particularly to a mcdicine.
A medicinal preparation that has real
curative ralue almost sells itself, as like
an endless chain system the remedy is
recommended by those who have been
benefited, to those who are in need of it.
A prominent druggist says "Take for
example Dr. Kilmer's 8wamp-Root, a
preparation I have eold for many years
and never hesitate to recomihend, for in
almost every case it shows excellent re-
sults, as many of my customers testify.
No other kidney remedy has so large a
According, to sworn statements and
verified testimony of thousands who have
used the preparation, the succcbs of Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root is due to the fact,
so many people claim, that it fulfills al-
most every wish in overcoming kidney,
liver and bladder ailments; corrects uri-
nary troubles and neutralizes the uric
acid which causes rheumatism.
You may receive a sample bottle of
Swamp-Root by Parcels Post. Address

dolph : "I'm not taking your Job Just

only thing I want you to promise Is
that you'll keep your trap closed if

umns looking for me."

"You know I won't, because I say
"Sure—that's all right, boss,1" said
the driver conelllatlngly. "No bones

more: have you flggered that It's five
hours to the opening of second-hand
Sixth avenue or the Bowery, an' I'd
have to wear those clothes of yourn

"What's the matter with these
clothes?" asked Randolph, a little
peeved. "Well, you've heard my offer.
Take It or leave It."
"Sure I'll take ltl" said the driver
promptly. "If 1 wasn't a-goln' to have
took It from the first, what would I 'a'
been standln' here talkln' for?" ,
Whereupon they entered to the
cramped privacy of the cab and ex-
changed garments. Randolph was
ready In ten minutes, but It took him
another ten to complete the apparel-
ing of the puzzled chauffeur. That
worthy added to his Investiture In
Randolph's best evening suit a sickly
"Say," he asked, "how do I look?"
Mr. Randolph sun-eyed him.
"Oh, you'll do, nil right. You look
■bout the way I would If I'd been on a
bat. Better have a few drinks. If you
can find them, and the world will fall
for your clothes. What time do I turn
the wagon In, and what time do I go
on again? Do you bunk at the garage,
by any chance?"
"Never you mind where I bunk,"
said the ex-cabman suspiciously.
"D'you think I'm goln' to throw in a
happy home for two hundred? You're
on the njght shift for this week. Read
the rules and regulations when you
get to the garage. Say good-by to the
boys for me an' tell the manager to go
They followed this remark out of
the cab; the tough in fop's clothing
cranked the car and turned westward,
as previously chronicled, while Mr.
Randolph, now substitute to Patrick
O'Reilly as driver of the Village Cub
company's No. 1S98, hurled his char-

"There ain't a man living that could
think up a lie like that, not audden,"
murmured the officer, and turned to
resume his beat while Mr. Randolph
promptly hit the mat In the hope of
catching up with Elysium- He slept;
he slept too deep for dreams, and was
beyond the reach of the call of any
motorhorn when Mr. Milyuna* town
car tried to shoo blm along at eight-
thirty of a bright morning.
Once more was Mr. Randolph
dragged by njaln force to wakefulneaa.
"Good-morning, Thomas," he re-
marked. "Is the old man up?"
"Hully geel Mr. Randolph 1 What
'ave you been up to now?"
"None of yours, Thomas," said Rob-
ert Hervey, In a kindly but firm voice.
"Get me a bit of paper and a pencil."
The chauffeur discovered the re-
quired articlea in Mr. MllyunB' car,
handed them over, and curiously
watched Mr. Randolph write his note
to the effect that Miss Imogene Pa-
mela Thornton would receive her legal
representative at Mr. Randolph s
rooms in Fifty-ninth street between
nine and ten. It was added that the
said rooms, upon which rent had been
paid to the end of the quarter, and all
they contained, Including the man,
Tomllnson, were at the perpetual dis-
position of the said Miss T.
"Now, Thomas," said Mr. Randolph,
"you take this In to the old man him-
self and tell him a chauffeur with an
empty cab brought It If you say an-
other word I'll have you up at the
union for losing me my Job, and I'll

make trouble whenever you feel like
it. It's a slow world except for the
likes of you."
As soon as the man had entered the
house, Mr. Randolph started his cab
and made for a point of vantage in
the park, from which, in due course,
he beheld the arrival of the lawyer at
Fifty-ninth- street. He waited long
enough to make sure that the /epaJ
gentleman had penetrated to Miss
Thornton; then he threw up his flag
and made for the garage.

"Say," he plunged, "Pat O'Reilly
lost his Job to me last night shooting
craps. My clock read twenty-eight
dollars this morning; here's my slip."
The manager glanced at the slip,
and took a long look at Mr. Randolph.
"You're on, kid," he decided. "Take
any shift you like. What's your

"One of them earned names," com-

Mr. Randolph spent the day getting
acquainted and proved himself a good
mixer. By telling a few stories that
ban not yet sifted down from Club-
land and by standing a few drinks he
soon found himself made free of all
the technical Information he needed
and some more that was so ultra-tech-
nical that it could beat the brains that
Invented the delicate mechanism of
the taximeter. He also established

bought himself a woolen khaki over-
coat with one of those enormous col-
lars which look like an Inverted
bucket when they are up and surpass
in efficiency the traditional black mask
so beloved by Illustrators of the week-
ly press. He also had a speaking slot
cut in the glass of the cab window
Just behind hla beat ear and subse-
quently removed and lost the slide
that had been fitted over It with con-
siderable skill and trouble.
During the next few nights he pro-
ceeded to have the time of hla life; so
much so that he was constantly over-
whelmed with wonder at his stupidity
In not having become a taxl-dilver
years before! It should be remem-
bered that Mr. Randolph waa of New
York Yorky; he knew everybody cas-
ually, from Mr. Milyuna and bis
daughter, Eileen, down to the lateat
addition to the pitiful ranka of the
mldlnette. More than that so broad
was his acquaintanceship that aa a
sporting gent he had once or twice
been tipped off aa to the where and
when of a proposed gun-play.
In addition to being by right of birth
an Integral part of all the social strata
of Manhattan, he knew the surface of
the Island and of the adjacent com-
moner soil of the mainland consid-
erably better than he knew the palm
of his own hand. In fact, he could
scarcely ever have been conscious that
he had a palnll, even as a map of per-
sonal fortune; for he who Is complete
ly satisfied with the present never
worries about the future and Mr. Ran-
dolph had been born content.
With auch an equipment, Is It to be
wondered at that he found the taxi
field rich with unexpected and sup-
prising blooms? Fair flowers, he had
known heretofore to nod only over tea
tables and solid silver appeared sud-
denly transplanted to his dab and
ready to nod on a stalwart shoulder.
Strong male tlger-lllles of the money
market grafted to the cushions of a
taxi, became complacent pillars upon
which some clinging Ivy twined.
In six nights he learned the sound
that a banker makes when slender
fingers tickle him under the chin; the
gasp of a girl, first-kissed; the cry of
a young man upon discovering the ab-
sence of grandfather's gold watch, hla
since graduation day; the cluck of a
top-hat fairly sat upon In the excite-
ment of a moment that else would
have been tragic, the exasperating tap,
tap, tap, of a hen-pecking tongue that
explained and condoned a murder mys-
tery in the next morning's papers, and
the sob of a ruined youngster who had
played with borrowed money.
All these incidents took place with
people whom Mr. Randolph knew or
knew of and Just to show what an ex-
tremely honest young man he was, let
It be said that it did not once occur to
him that he need never be poor while
humanity, supposedly in good stand-
ing, continued to lay Itself open to
blackmail at the rate of a case a night.
At the same time, he was not stupid
and occasionally tapped out a missive
loaded with dynamite on the garage
typewriter when no one was around.
Here is a sample.
"Mr. Polndexter MacGuler, Sir: As
I was driving you and Miss B. B.
larst night who was foster-mothered
bv an aunt of a frend of a frend of
mine, I heerd you talkin to her and
all I got to say is If I see yon out
with her again short of the bands of
matrimony I'll get another frend of
mine to get Mr. Robert Flerv Ran-
dolph to tell what he knows about
you cheaten at cards on Dec. 23 last."
Nights that gave birth In the morn-
ing to such illiterary tit-bits could
scarcely be called dull, but It was not
long before Mr. Randolph found him-
self threatened by nn unexpected mo-
notonous employment. Unfortunntely
for his entertainment, his reputation
as the one par excellence St. Berpard
lifesaver to the Inebriate elite spread
rapidly throughout the Force so that
the telephone was constantly burdened
during the wee hours with the follow-
ing: "Say, is Slim Hervey on the Job?

With suspicious suddenness Mr.
Randolph proceeded to forget half his
school and clubmates and cold-blooded-
ly leave them to their fate and a
night out not without coming to grief
on at least one occasion, however.
"What are you comln* over me?" de-
manded the Irate captain of the Nth

years, have ya? . Has all his frens
