How to Keep Ifouse.
With all tho luxuries and pleasures
of this llfo, its big enjoyments and its
smaller comforts, tlicro is an offset or
antithesis which we have to contend
with in the form of aches and pains.
In some way and by somo means otory
one has a touch of them in some form
at somo time. Trifling as somo of them
may be, the risk is that thoy will grow
to something greater and rack tho sys
tem with constant torture. There is
nothing, therefore, of this kind that we
hate a right to trifle with. Taken in
time, the worst forms of aches and
pains aro easily subdued and cured by j
the frco use of St. Jacobs Oil. No
woll regulated household ought to bo I
without a bottle of this great remedy
for pain. It is the specific virtue of I
penetration in Bt. Jacobs Qil that car-1
rioa it right to the pain spot and effecta
a prompt cure even In the most panful
cases of Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Bclat-
lea, Lumbago. You want it also In

Whits wo havo been absorbed in tho

tho fato of our deplorable Civil War has
been decided, and the glorious day of sal

the Ktates and parts of States then In

whoso owner need ever again hide his

query: "Am I not a man and a brother?"
The glad news had found Sylphldo

great city; alio received It calmly, tri
umphantly: Indeed, thn tidings of tho
death of hrr cousin, Oscar Couramont,
shot down while skirmishing as a gueril

the receipt of her hireling's telegram up
on the same memorable dsy filled her
with a wk!, savage delight that she was
powerless to control.

Then she abruptly smote the Ml upon
her table a ringing peal. To thn faithful
Diana, who promptly answered the sum
mons In person, she saM:
"Pack up two or three of my hand
homeit costumes, lay out my traveling
dross, and order a cab to be at the door
at five o'clock this afternoon."
"Aro you going away?"
"Yes, for a tew days."
"Where. Miss Sylph?"
"To Newport."
In tho foggy dawn of tho following
day, Camllle, tho serving man, llltted
like a shadow down Ilellevuo avenue and
skulked In at the gates of the Courtlandt
villa. With a swift, fearful glance at
the closed blinds of the hour, he plung
ed In amongst somo shrubbery and so
madn his way to thn stables, cautiously
raised an unlocked window at the back
of the building aud vanished.
Ills unneceanary display nf stealth was
ample evidenco of the guilty frame of
mlud u ml it which he labored, nine at
that early hour no on was astir, and had
he possessed tho fortitude to glanco
about him ho would havo perceived that
his path was cloar of any prying eye.
Hut the wicked flee when no man pursu
cth, and Camllle was Dying before the
scourgo nf a craven conscience. With
Imclan Courilandt's frantic criea for help
ringing In his ears, he bad left the villa
on tho preceding day, unpercelved In
.the general excitement attendant upon
poor Claire's rail.
Once safely In the stable, he quietly
closed the window, and hoaviug a deep
sigh of relief, flung himself Into the
hay, hoping to secure the advantage of
an hour's sleep.
Vain hopol If ha closed his lids over
his burning eyes, they would fly wide,
staring open as if worked by Irresisti
ble springs over which he had no con
trol. No sleep for him, snd he could
only Ho there Hstcnlng and waiting for
he know not what. Presently the volco
of tho coachman, as he called to rouse
tho sleeping groom, sent every drop of
bU cowardly blood to his heart, leaving
his limbs frozen and Inert.
Hours passed; a lanco of tho risen
sun flashed In at a cob-wchbed window
above him, and rested warmly upon tho
dead clover tops and sero timothy heads
which formed his couch. At last a bell
rang and (ho coachman and groom left
tho atablo for the villa kitchen to brenk
fast. Ily this means Camllle was mode
aware that It must be ten o'clock or af
ter. His sunpenss became unbearable; the
heat of the bay stifled him, and with a
groan be crawled to the edge of his am
bush and sprang lightly down upon the
floor. Two minutes In the harness room,
where the brushes snd water served to
make him presentable, and then be tip

consequences of his deed.
Ho crowed tint drive way, sklrUd Ins
lawn and was about to tllrect his step
In the direction of an unusued entrance
to tho villa, when In tho shadowy psth
ho suddenly found himself confronted by
Martha Dunn.
"Oh I" exclaimed tho faithful serving
woman, recoiling a step, "how you scsf

"ICxcikk me, Mrs. l)iimi I didn't mean

"You're n fool And a lunatic Into

man's face change to a gray, unearthly
pallor, his haggard eres dilate and hU
mouth drop open; after which Inexpllca

"Calm yourself, Mr. Ilurgess."
"Cslm myself sfter ths mewsge you
sent me last night? Oh, tell me, Is
Claire dead?"
"No "
"Heaven be praised!"
The grateful word were uttered with
touching fervor, as the old grntlemsn
sank upon a bench and clasped his hands
In fervent thanksgiving. Seising his op
portunity, Oresham turned to Martha:
"do snd prepsre your mistress to see
ber fsther," he said, aud Martha quickly
vanished Into tho house.
"Oresham," the old man said when
they were alone, "tell mo the wrt; what
Is likely to happen?"
"Nothing. I have saved her, but sh
has been poisoned."
"Polsone.ll How?"
"Ily tho admlnjrtratlon of arsenic."
"Ily whom?"
"I do not know. Silence! Here comes

It was trus. Upon the Hires? old Claire
alresdy stood with outstretched hand,

"Ob, let me look at you and hold you
close, my darling! To think that they

"Or better, I will take you away from

Is a burden? No, no; we will go today.

I will undertake to discover the wretch,

Sho was trembling pitifully now, snd
her great eyes were fixed distractedly
upon hi livid face,
"Hut I ought not I do not want to

"Your husband!" cried Philip Hurges
with withering contempt, "your husband

Jle recoiled from her In horror, and
stood looking at her Incredulously for a

"To die you, you!"
"Yes," Clalro replied with a fortitude
bom of her unreasoning woman's love,
"I sought dosth by my own hand. I
tried to commit suicide, but they would
not let medio. Would they had!"
"And you did not think of your mother
