The Year Round.
All the year around chronic or ne
glected rheumatism hangs on. It is
worse in chilly, dump weather, but
never sj bad that St. Jacobs Oil can't
promptly and effectually cure it.

Ca Va SLSJ M la Last
Jimmie ard jme.
HOSE were their names Jimmy
and Jane. Everybody In the vil-
lage knew them; they had many
friends; yet all agreed with wonderful
unanimity that they were two of the
strangest Individuals ever seen.
Jimmy his full name was James
Bradford was a bachelor of about 50
years, reputed to have a stocking full
of gold and silver coins, which he kept
In his feather bed. He was a noted
hater of women and seldom spoke to
Jane or more properly Miss Jane
Green was called an old maid, lived In
a tiny house by herself, and had a holy
horror of the biped man. Her age was
"uncertain," but her 40th birthday was
, .1. - -.4.
oi liie pilau
Jimmy took life easily, but was op
posed to ostentation and the modern
acceptance of the term "luxisry."
He dressed without regard to fash
Ion, but within the bounds of respect
ability. He even rode out In his own
carriage," but It was by no means a
modern vehicle; It had done service, he
would proudly tell you, since his grand
father's days, quite a century ago.
He cared little for books; society he
abominated, because it was spoiled by
admitting women, and of the few di
versions that went to make up the sum
of his life's pleasures, fishing held the
place of prominence.
Even In the pursuit of this gratifica
tion Jimmy was not free from harass
ment, for he was obliged to pass by
the door of a cottage occupied by a
woman in order to reach the river. The
woman was no other than Jane.
One bright afternoon In September
Jimmy was lounging along the river
bank when the splash of oars In mid
stream fell upon his ears. He looked
In the direction of the sounds, and then
a scowl wrlnRled his forehead.
"Humph!" he muttered, "that old
maid Jane Green Is trying to row over
to Ned Brown's. She'd better be home
drinking tea. Most likely she'll man
age to get drowned. What a fuss she
makes, splashln' an' flappln' about."
He pulled up his line with an angry
Jerk, put a fresh worm on the hook
and then cast out the line again, with
an outlay of strength quite unneces
sary, unless to give vent to his Indig
nation. The "splashln an' flappln' about," In
stead of dying away In the distance as
the boat reached the other side of the
river, grew louder and more disturb
ing, and, half In wonder, half anger,
Jimmy looked around again.
"Drat the luck!" he cried. "If she
ain't gone and rowed right smack Inter
that eddy the only one within two
miles at that. If that ain't jest like a
fool woman I'd like to know what 'tis
Just then his attention was attracted
to his line, and Jane's peril was for a
A forcible reminder came in the form
of a loud, piercing scream, followed by
a frightened appeal for help.
"There, Jest as might ha' been ex
pected! The first bite I've had for an
hour, and that miserable woman had
fTLASU OF OAKS
to lot out a seroaui an' scare the flsh
"Help! Help! I shall drownl"
screamed the woman.
There was no question about It, Miss
Jane was In great peril. Her boat, an
old leaky shell was twirling about,
the rapid, rotary motion causing at fre
quent Intervals foamy waves to splash
over Its sides, and It bade fair to sink
In short order.
"Let her drown!" growled the wom
an hater, savagely. "There'll be one
less woman gosh! she will go down as
sure as fate. Beln a sort of human
critter, I s'poso I'll hev' to pull her
out, er the neighbors '11 lynch me."
His own boat happened to be near at
hand, and a few rapid strokes brought
him as near the eddy as safety per
mitted. "Here!" he cried, grumbling, as he
threw out a rope, "ketch hold of that,
If you don't want to drown."
Miss Jane had been so occupied with
her fears and struggles that up to this
moment she was unaware that assist
ance had arrived. At the sound of his
voice she turned quickly.
"Merciful heavens! Jimmy Bradford,
of all men! lemme drown!"
"Don't be a" tarnation fool, Jane
Green! Ketch hold of that rope an'
I'll pull you out."
"Never!" cried Jane, spurting out a

paddlLng desperately with both hands
to keep afloat.
"Then I'll pull ye out, anyhow!" ejac
ulated Jimmy. "I never knew any llv-
"an' set thk bull town to talkin',"
lu' woman had such grit. You're too
plucky for flsh bait, an' I'll save ye,
whether or no."
Despite Jane's gurgled protests, he
hurriedly hauled In the rope, formed a
sllpnoose at one end, and hurled It over
the half-drowned woman's shoulders.
Then he exerted his strength In a vig
orous pull, which Jane resisted with
all her waning powers, and succeeded
la lifting her Into the boat.
"Oh, dear!" she gasped. "And to
think that I should owe my life to
Jimmy Bradford," and then, too much
exhausted to bear up any longer, she
closed her eyes and fainted away.
"Wuss and wuss!" cried Jimmy. "Did
ever a man hev such luck? What In
the world ami goln to do with a faint
in' half-drowned woman, I'd like to
know? I've half a mind to leave her
here In the boat an' start for home."
He drew the boat up on the sloping
shore and after carrying Miss Jane to
a sheltered spot beneath a widespread
lng willow tree, proceeded to restore
her to consciousness. When she open
ed her eyes the first thing that met her
"Oh, my soul!" she gasped, feebly.
"Am I in the power of the Evil One?"
"Draw It a little mild, Jane Green. I
ain't the Evil One, nor no kin to him,
as I knows on. An' you're showin'
mighty little appreciation for havln'
your life saved, I can tell ye."
"Wall, said Jane, after a moment's
thought, "perhaps I was a little too
harsh. I s'pose there are wuss belu's
on the face of this alrth than you be.
I reckon you'd set all the tongues o'
scandal waggln' against me."
"You're too plucky a woman to feed
fishes on, an' too good-looking, too."

LAW AS INTERPRETED.
An exception as to "change of occu
pant without Increase of hazard" In
an Insurance policy prohibiting change
of Interest, title or possession, Is held,
In Herman Bros., L. & Co. vs. Kata
Bros. (Tenn.), 41 L. K. A. 700, to be ap
plicable to personal as well as to real
The presumption against suicide la
held In Johns vs. Northwestern Mutual

the Insured went to bed as usual, was

was 15 by 20 Inches.
The Implied duty of the owner to use

of his premises is held. In Cauundaigim

continue, notwithstanding his lease of
a part of the structure on the abutting
land and its occupation bv a tenant, al
though the tenant has, by. Implication,
tne exclusive right to use the grate.
The burden of proving an alibi Is held
In State vs. Thornton (S. D.), 41 L. K. A.
530, to be upon the defendant at least
to the extent of raising a reasonable
doubt of guilt after the State has
made a prima facie case. The great
contrariety of opinion on this subject
Is shown in a note to this case,- In which
the different rules are clearly defined
and the authorities of the different
Jurisdictions analyzed with reference
The loss of the services of a minor
child killed by the fault of another is
held, in Gulf, C. & S. P. Co. vs. Beall
(Texas), 41 L. It. A. 807, to give the
parents no common-law right of action
against the party In fault. There hna
been a difference of authorities on this
question, the preponderance of which
supports the present decision, but the
cases which reach this conclusion do
so on different grounds, as appears
from the note to this case.
A HUSBAND'S TASTE.
No Wife Compromises Her Individual
ity in Matters of Dreas.
Mary R. Baldwin relates this sug
gestive little incident in the Woman's
Home Companion: " 'Oh, my dear,
where did you get that monstrosity?'
whispered a man to the little woman
by his side as he clung to a strap, and
she to him, as they rode home together
In a street-car.
"The effect certainly was ridiculous
the wee face with Its timid expression
under one of the largest of the uew
stylos of hats with Its flaunty feathers
and obtrusive trimmings. The tears
started to the eyes of the overtopped
little creature; then she recovered her
self, and Insisted that It was Just the
thing the very latest of the fashions.
It is not beneath the thought of the
most Intellectual woman, nor does it
compromise personal Independence
and taste to consult the preferences of
a husband In the choice of modes and
articles of dress.
"There are husbands so constituted,
no doubt, that It Is gratifying to their
pride and sense of authority to receive
perfect dependence from the wife; but
the reliance of an efficient woman who
Is able to think and act for herself Is
thoroughly appreciated by a broad
minded, generous-souled husband. If
his wife has a retlned true taste he
feels honored when she lays before him
her plans for the house-furnishing, or
the gowning of herself, and after the
purchase, as he regards effects, he
takes pride in the thought of having
had a voice In the choosing."
He Thought It Unfa r.
The Atlanta Constitution affirms that,
as the representative of a Georgia
county was leaving home to assume
his honorable duties, one of his aged
colored constituents said to him:
"Marse Ben, you gwlue ter de Lecls
"Yes; that's where I'm bound."
"En you gwlue ter make laws?"
"That's what they tell me."
"Er, how much will you git a day fer
"My Lawd!" exclaimed the astonish
ed old man. "En des ter think all I
gets Is forty cents a day fer plowin', en
only meat en bread fer plckln' cottou!"

From Mrs. Rank to Mrs. Pinkham i
The following letter to Mrs. Pink
ham from Mrs. M. Rank, No. 2,354
East Susquehanna Ave., Philadelphia,
Pa., is a remarkable statement of re
lief from utter discouragement She
says: " I never can find words with which
to thank you for what Lydia B. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound has does
" Some years ago I had womb trouble
and doctored for a long time, not see
ing any Improvement. At times I
would feel well enough, and other
times was miserable. So it went on
until last October, I felt something
terrible creeping over me, I knew not
what," but kept getting worse. I can
hardly explain my feelings at that
time. I was so depressed In spirit
that I did not wish to live, although I
had everything to live for. Had hys
teria, was very nervous; could not
sleep and was not safa to be left
" Indeed, I thought I would lose my
mind. No one knows what I endured.
" 1 continued this way until the last
of February, when I saw in a paper a
testimonial of a lady whose case was
similar to mine, and who had been
cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta
ble Compound. I determined to try it,
and felt better after the first dose. I
continued taking it, and to-day am
well woman, and can say from my
heart. 'Thank God for such a medi
cine.'" Mrs. Pinkham invites all suffering
