Hut Mr, Hornca noticed none of

Mr. Horace brought hie old grey

neighbor to catch her breath.
"Turkey egge?" he aaked, with old
fashioned jwlltenrss, "ccrtnlnly,

Twenty-five years la a long look
back. He waa a allm young fellow,
full of hope and youth, that first Run

Hill's gate, hitched hie horae, and
went in to begin the alege of her
heart; and ahe wae young, and Die
prettiest girl In nil the county. ,
For ten yeara he had ridden to her
houae, and then had ridden away.
The vleita ended auddrnly, and a
month later Mr. Horace waa married.
Mr. Horace'a llttlo wife, never com
plained, but at the enill of five year
ahe found the burden of life too heavy,
and laid It down. It waa ten yeara
from the time of hie wife' death,
and 21 yeara from the time of hta
flret wooing, aa he went up the path
to Miaa IllU'e home. Rtrange thought!
were thronging hla brain. Ae he put
one foot behind hlin for hie ol.l-fni.h-

"All alone?" he qurationed.
"Yea," with a faint flush at the
agerneaa of hla tone. And then ahe
told him that the family were away
for the day. With an ImiHitlrnt mo

brow, aa though he brushed Imaginary
cobwebs from hla brnln. "Now'a the
timet Marry her In aplle of herself!
Itouae yoursulf!" How the worda rang
In hla eare.
He asked for mm water, and when
Miaa Hill returned ahe dimly realized
that a change had panned over him.
Mr.Horacehad pulled himself together.
He aat down, and held himnelf erect.
He spoke with a dignity new to him.
"Mary," he said, "It's Si years alnce
I flrat hitched my home to your gate
post, and, aa I look back, it aevms all
Hunday afternoons when I hare come
to aee you."
He grew eloquent. He even men

quietly-her delicate face calm. One
would never have dreamed of the tur
moil of her heart. Many a time when
she fell that he needed s woman's care
ahe had pi lied him. Hhe had worried
lest his stockings were ti.it darned, bis
food well prepared. (Irioe.l to the

That's the way it beging. Little things
disturb you. You are irritable, restless
and worry over trillos. Your heart jumps
and palpitates at every sudden noise, you
can't concentrate your mind on vour .
work, your memory fails and you do not
sleep well at night. In the morning you
feel weak and exhausted, with no appe
tite for food and no ambition for exertion
of any kind. Nervous prostration has no
terrors for those who use
D. Miles' N en vine.
It stops the nervousness, soothes the irritation, quickens t.e pulse, stimulates fhe diges

and swept the landscape with anxious

REMARKABLE PAT HANDS.

Inner club circles have been regaled
with a story of a recent sitting at
draw poker, in which five well-known
clubman took part, says the Baltimore
It was at the home of one of tbe
members. Two new packs of cards
were brought out, the seaj of one was
cut and the cards rhuflled. From this
pack cardt Were dealt around to se
lect the dealer for the opening hand.
This done, the second pack of cards
wat opened and nriiifnVd by one of the
party, who handed if. to the dealer,
who also shuffled. The pack was then
tendered for the usual cut, which waj
done. A round of jackpots had been
Tbe player who had first say w at en
Insurance man, and he promptly
opened. Next wat a grain merchant,
who raised the opener. A member of
the stock exchange came next and he
saw the raise and went the limit bet
ter. A merchant well known for his
aggressive spirit sat next in line and
he quietly mot all that had been bet
and rnited the limit. It was now
around to a railroadman, who was the
dealer. There waa a pause, and each
player inspected hit cards with a self
satisfied air. The railroad man broke
the tllence by meeting all bets and
raiting them the limit. Kverybody
stayed In the game. The dealer asked
how many cardt were wanted and each
player in turn laid none. The dealer
took none. He made a nominal betand
the call wat parted all around.
At the show-down the hand in each
case was a full house and. beginning
with the first to the left of the dealer,
as follows: Sevens nd deuces, eights
and treyt, nlnea nnd fours, tens and
Uvea, acea and fives. The railroad man
waa the winner. He has had the cards
m held by each player framed and each
player has a photograph of them as
a touvenir of phenomenal aequence In
a game of poker,
