Afraid of Ghosts
Many people are afraid of ghosts. Few people
re afraid of germs. Yet the ghost is fancy and
the germ it i.ict. If the term could he magnified
to a size equal to it terrors it would appear more
terrible than any 6re-brcathin dragon. Germs
can't be avoided. They are in the air we breathe,
ths water we drink.
The lie r in can only prosper when the condition
of the system dives it free scope to establish it
self and develop. When there is a deficiency of
vital force, languor, restlessness, a sallow check,
hollow eye, when the appetite is poor and tljp
sleep is rro!;pn, it is time to guard oiiuinst tl-.e germ. Von can
fortify the body against oil gcrim by the use of Dr. I'icrr.-'s Cold

lo be prepared fT stub a result.
Elsle--tli.it was lar name Ulsie KJ
8m and I 8Hnt the evenlui; eliattltitf
and phiylns checkers atul backb'am
tmm. I was but twenty-two and ante
nr.,le to the nttraetioii.s of a pretty clrl.
She had read detective stories and
accmed to look upon mo as a marvel
of Ingenuity. Of course sliue I was
a detective I must be Ingenious. I
didn't tell her that this wan my first
case. I put on all the mystery 1 could
summon In order to Impress her with
the depth of my methods. At 10
o'cloek she was onlered to tied, and
her mother took me to the room where
the chost was expected to npitear. It
was a chamber between a front and a
rear room, a hall lending past It from
one to the other. Some sandwiches
and a bottle of beer were placed on a
table beside me.
I had all a young man's appetite for
eating and sleeping and was very fond
of beer, esecially about bedtime. I
put off my supper as long aa I could
about fifteen minutes then ate up all
the sandwiches, drank the beer and lit
a cigar. I would better have had cof
fee. The beer, followed by the cigar
and my position I was stretched on
a lounge contributed to put me to
sleep. It occurred to me that a de
tective should tie very careful not to
be caught napping, and I tried bard to
keep awake. I should have got up
and walked ttie floor, but well, I was
very comfortable where I was. Of
course I fell asleep.
I dreamed. Dreams are singular
things. Sometimes they have nil tuo
appearance of reality. My dream was,
to use a paradoxical expression, a
pleasant nightmare. I dreamed that
I was lying Just where I was; that
Elsie walked by the open door, looked
In at me, came and stood by me, deft
ly drew my handkerchief from my
outside cont poekct one corner was
exposed then, bending lower and
lower, lightly touched my forehead
with her Hp. This done, she tiptoed
to the door. Ktood for a moment look-
: lug nt me with all the merriment of a
' prank player, then pnssed out.
! How much time elapsed between my
; dream and my nwnkeulng I don't
know. When I awoke It was from
hearing n Jhi'.iltig of keys. I had the
'presence of mind to lie jn-rfeetly still.
s I lelt sure IUslc was near, mid 1 was
, not Furprlsed to see out of the eorner
of my eye nit old woman pass the
door with a bunch of keys In her
hand. I wal'ed. and the figure re
turned and tliisi time limited In as sho
passed. I snored on. Onec more re
turult:g. the n rare stood In the door-
; way and jl:i!c.l her keys, evidently to
awaken tr:e. 1 hw fulling, she came to
j the lountte mid was looking at mo
; when I Rpni':,' up and rauu-ht her In
. my :irni!. of course she was I'lsle.
1 "Oil. giH.d ; ra. -lous!" she c.vl.iimcd.
, "I am sorry. Mi.-; IMs " I snld,
"to have f-.ituht you In the act. My
chief will re'H'Iro an exa'-t report. I
trust your fa 'ally will not consider
your playlnx ehost reprehensible?"
"Hut they will. I'm not the ghost
I never playid the ghost before. I
srr.v you were asleep and thought I'd
play n prank on you. I didn't know
detectives ever slept."
It was my turn to wince. IIow
' wou'd It look to my chief If I wire
rejM.rted sli-cplng on watch? "This
clrl Is easily managed," I said to iny
! seif. "I'll bliltT her Just for fun."
"I confess to you." I replied, "that I
felt very dull ant! npjfared to bo
asleep. I was not. To prove it I will
tell you Homeihing. A certain young
i lady came Into the r'toin ami kl.tsed
Mn started and bluslnd.
"Ah. liar I thought. "My dream
J was real."
"Y.u Kay you were awake," khe said
preset:! I jr.
She pulled lav handkerchief out of
h'-r sleeve. "Then why did you let too

' I lian.-cd my bmgadis lo air to a
Iim:i.I le ue.
"Y u say It your duty to rejM.rt

j "How about t!:e kiss?"
"oh. It w ill apjM'.ir that you dreamed
I t p-ive you tho ki"."
"I think." I snld after reflection.
! "t'iit yi u have the ndvatitatte of me."
; "I think so, too,'' she said. "I'm
