Dr. Dene was a young man who by
much overstudy - and' superfluous cram
ming had. managed to scrape through
his many exams, gain his degree, and
yet be one of the simplest men that
ever ate bread and butter.
He had a good practice in a fashion
able London suburb, and. although too
shy man apart from his professional
character ever to make many .friends
especially among the fair sex still he
was universally admired for, his skill
and Integrity, and laughed -at as well,
because of his extreme gullibility.

spect as he grew older, 'the doctor 'sud

To a serious, single-minded shy man,
such as he, this was a fearful calam

son either, which mads it sua more
serious. '.' " v . v
His divinity., loo, was the veriest
shrimp of a thing. , Wasp-walsted. high
heeled., always, fashionably dressed.
The very sort of girl that a medical
man, who hadn't quite forgotten all his
anatomy, would: tell you was a disgrace
to civilisation. ;
She passed his house frequently, gen
erally once ' a day; and looking up at
his surgery-window one morning her
big eyes had caught hlra peeping be

vinity's name was very quick to per
ceive as indeed, what ordinary woman
is not the Impression she mads on
the reticent studious man. From a
friend of hers Gerald Thorncroft she
managed to glean! a great deal at odd
times about the doctor; of his goodness,
his simoleness. his cleverness.
This Thorncroft - bad, indeed, studied
for soma, time at the same college with

He paid assiduous court to Kitty,
and at first she smiled on him, although,
Wondrous to relate, she kept herself as
straight-and pure as If she bad a chap
eron ever at- her elbow. Self-reliant
witty, ambitious, Kitty did not let her
morals run askew.
When ahe heard so much about the
doctor, thought of the security of his
position, the happy home he could offer h
wire, a great disgust came over her
for Gerald Thorncroft with his swagger
ana dash and style.
He swears he loves me. Tet Tie's

tenderly in his arms he bore her to

'She has fainted! Poor child!" he
said compassionately to - his house
keeper, who had been a witness to the
scene. Mrs. Grant tossed her head and
deluged the pretty face with cold water.
This quickly brought Kitty to, and
she went on with her acting:
She was better, much better. So
ashamed and sorry to have given such
trouble. Thank them both very much
She was quite ready to go now. She had
not far to walk, only to Caraman street
The doctor told a white He for once
In his life, and stuck to it like a man.
I am passing Caraman street on
professional visit" he said. "May
offer to take you in my carriage?"
She refused very prettily and with
sweet hesitation.
Half surprised at his own temerity,
the doctor pressed the matter and over
ruled her objections.
Mrs. Grant tossed her head again as
the little, dainty thing went lightly
down, the steps on Dr. Dene's arm and
then into Dr. Dene's carriage.
On the way Kitty was , talkative.
Told the doctor all about herself. There
was no mention of a theatre In her nar
rative, though, nor . of anything else
connected with her real life. Just
cleverly told, high flown little fiction of
fallen fortunes a helpless orphan no
one to befriend her, and so on. The
doctor was charmed wlth her woes, and
he would have asked her to marry him
on the spot if only he had dared.
She made good use of the twenty mln
utes drive, you msy be sure, and when
they reached Caraman street she gave
his hand ever so slight a pressure, and
said modestly:
I will ask you to set me down at
the corner. My landlady is very strict
and might be harsh to me If she saw me
get out of your carriage, unfortunately
for me, I am in her debt and the world
is so censorious."
"How delicate! How thoughtful!'
mused Theodore afterward.
But she no more lived in Caraman
street, reader, than you or I do. But
before nightfall she had secured tw
top rooms In one of the highly respect'
able houses there; had cut her connec
tion with the theatre under the plea
that she was going at once to America
to join some rich relatives. Had even
borrowed ten pounds .from Gerald
Thorncroft to aid her on her voyage
"You can pay me how and when you
like. Kitty In Coin or kisses, dear.
"It won't be in kisses," said she, very
scornfully; and scarcely let him touch
her hand when she said "Good-bye.
Then Kitty was taken ill in her grand
new lodgings, and Theodore Dens at-
tended her.
Tou can guess the consequence. The
very first day She went out' of doors
the doctor drove her to church and they
were very quietly married.
Now you know by this time that
Kitty was ambitious. Well, suppose
we skip over ten years and find her, so

would surely spare me then."

Lots Like It Being Done Right
Here In Portlands
Portland people are surprised at the
work being done by "The Little Con
queror." Public expression on the sub
ject brings the matter frequently be
fore the people. At first there were
many doubters; and why not? So many
claims of a similar nature have been
made with little or no backing excepting
the word of some stranger residing in
a far-away place; this evidence was sc
cepted for lack of better. Not neces
sary to accept it any longer. All suf
ferers from any kidney 1 111 can find
plenty of local endorsement for a rem
edy that will cure them. ' Surely the
wonderful work of Doan's Kidney Pills
right here at home Is proof1 sufficient to
satisfy anyekeptlc. Read the expres
sion of one citlsen on the subject:
J. Blake, whose place of residence is
825 Market street says: "I bought
several boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills
from the Laue-Davls Drug Co.'s store,
corner of Yamhill and Third streets, and
I scarcely think if the first had not
proved satisfactory, that I would have
tried the second or third. I have used in
my time almost everytnlng said to be a
cure for weakened or overexcited kid
neys and bladder, but nothing ever gave
me the satisfaction I received from
Doan's Kidney Pills. They are easy to
take, have no effect upon -the stomach
or bowels and act directly on the kid
neys, and I thoroughly believe from the
results-1 received and also from obser
vation that Doan's Kidney Pills are one
preparation on the market which acta
