If the Cornish boy had found the
smugglera' cave with hla good rope
woiting for him over the cliff, he
would hnve rejoiced, but he waa 1;
priaoncd where his life was in immi
A return of the smuggler, luckily
ior tne young hunter at that time ab
sent, would pretty soon put an end
to his career of clitf-climbiiig, and the
little home behind the waters would
never know hi. fate,
Hruut Hurton had no doubt that he
hnd discovered the cave of the very
men ior wiiose detection the govern
ment had offered u lurge reward. Ni
person had dreamed that it had ex
isted In that vicinity, and the Interior
of the cavern in the cliff told the boy
mai n naa neen used for evil pur
poses a long time.
After awhile the moon came up and
s lvcu-d the rolling waves of the chan
nel. Its light fell against the foot
of (he cliff, nnd showed the boy at
Inteii a : the sonnt pathway between
me sin and the rock.
Armed with a coil of rope which
lie bad fo-.ind among the snitiirirlera
goods, he leaned over the ledge and
tried to measure the dlstanoe between
him nnd the water. It was uncertain
work in the moonlight, but he did
the beat he could.
There was but one hope of eCRie,
and thnt lay along the foot of the
cliff, which wa. slippery and washed
oy me tide.
The Cornish boy dropped the rope
mm saw n reach the rocks below
A thrill of exultation took posses
sion oi ins heart
He fnstened the other end of the
rope to an iron staple In the eavern
and thrust Into his bosom a niece ol
peculiar luce which he took from one
or the boxes. He remembered hav
ing heard a coaat guardsman any that
a certain kind of lace was being
smuggled into Cornwall, aud he be
lieved he had found It.
When nil was ready, the vonniF inll.
hunter again trusted his fortunes to
a swaying rope this time to one he
nan never before tested.
The following moment he wan
swinging between the cliff and the
sea, going down hand over hand to
ward the surging tide.
When he touched the rocks beneath
ho wns forced to hug the wall, for
the waves were at his very feet
He shuddered when he thought iha
he would hnve to follow the narrow
path for more than a mile In-fore
there was a brnik In the cllffa, but
he nerved himself for the taa1t and
It proved to tie the mnt n..,li.,.
Journey of hi. life. All the way he
wns compelled to hug the wail of
rock, with the roaring surf leaping
at him. More than once he waa
caught, and barely aaved himself by
clinging to rocks that cut like knivea.
At laat Ilrant Hurton reached the
break in the Cornish wall. It was to
him n gate of safety.
Springing forward, after a brief
real, he ran to the village and told
his story to the constable of the coast
guard. It wa. hard to believe, but
hi. hands and the lace were proof

VThea woman is nervous she ia generally
sleepless. If there is anything s nervous
woman dreads it is the night which ought to,
be so welcome as the bringer of rest and
refreshing. Her very dread increases her
nervousness, and the fear of sleeplessness helps to
make her sleepless. Sometimes a woman by the
exercise of will-power tries to lie still and straight through
the night When her eyes are closed she seems conscious
of some perilous presence in the room. When she lies
with wide open eyes the gloom seems peopled with shad
owy phantoms, that grow and melt away before her
affrighted gaze. Then, perhaps, she springs from the bed
and lights the gas or a lamp, feeling that she must have the
companionship of light. And ever, from time to time, she
rises to tee what hour it is, and wonders to find it is but
fifteen minutes instead of an hour since she last looked at
the clock. .
One of the remarkable features about such a condition is
that so few women connect it with its common cause
womanly disease. They try all kinds of sedatives for their
nerves. They take " sleeping powders " and headache pow
ders and all sorts of drugs which at the best can only numb
the nerves and stupify tho brain for a time. Tho real need
of nervous, sleepless women is a cure of womanly diseases.
Then with quited nerves natural, refreshing sleep will come
Nervous and sleepless women bear glad and grateful
witness to the wonderful cures effected by tho use of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. Even when tho nervous con
dition had reached the most distressing stage, and all other
medicines and means of cure had failed, Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription has effected a perfect and permanent euro.
" It Is with pleasure that I write to let you know the great benefit
I have received from your medicines, and by following your advice
regarding self-treatment at home," writes Mrs. Selma Erickson, of
496 Rice Street, St. Paul, Minn. "You kindly advised me to bike
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and ' Golden Medical Discovery '
and ' Pleasant Pellets.' When I first wrote you I had been to three
different doctors, and two of them said I would never get better with
out going to the hospital for on operation. I just sat down and cried,
and said, ' If I die, I will die at home with my two dear little ones.'
I had a mishap in May last and w as weak all summer. Was not able
to do anything. If I would get up and walk to the kitchen and back
1 wouia nave to He in bed tor a day or sometimes two day.. Last
August I picked up one of Dr. Pierce's pamplets and read of his wonderful work. I wrote
to him for information and received an answer within five day. from the day I wrote,
advising me to try hi. medicines. Now I have used six bottles of his ' Favorite Prescrip
tion' and six of the 'Golden Medical Discovery,' and the result is just wonderful. I did
not tell the doctors what I was taking. I have not been to any physician since the day I
received the first letter from Dr. Pierce, and I feel aa good a. I ever did before I had the
muhap. was to nervous I hail to have some one by my side all the time, even In day
time, and I could hardly eat anything. I took treatment from a doctor twice a week, and
every time I would go there I felt so sick, but since I quit all the doctors and twgan taking
your medicine I gained right along. I have gained forty pounds within the last four
months. I weighed 125 when I began taking your medicines (in August), and now I am
up to my usual weight 165. I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful medicines,
and I wish you every success in the treatment of other cases as you have had in mine.
When I think what I .uffered last summer it seems now like a dream, for to-day I am as
well and feel as good as ever."
"Ilv wife was ick for over eight years," writes Albert H. Fulte, Ksq., of Altsmont,
Grundy Co., Tenn. "She hsd uterine disease and was treated by two physicians and got
no relief. At last I read in one of vour Memorandum Books which you sent me, about Dr.
Pierce's medicines, and we decided to try his Favorite Prescription.' I sent to the drug
tore and got one bottle, and the first dose gave ease and sleep. She had not slept any for
three nights Being sure that it would cure her, I sent for five more bottles, and when she
had taken the sixth bottle she was sound and well."
These are not exceptional cures. These letters are but two out of thousands
written by women who found health through the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. This great medicine for women establishes regularity, dries debili
tating drains, heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. It
cures nervousness, sleeplessness, backache, headache, and other consequences of
womanly disease. "Iavorito Prescription" is purely a vegetable preparation
containing no alcohol, neither opium, cocaine, nor any other narcotic. It cau
not disagree with tho weakest constitution.
Mrs. Erickson, in her letter printed above, refers gratefully to correspondence
with Dr. Pierce and advice received from him. Dr. Pierce invites sick and
ailing women to consult him by letter, . All correspondence is held in
sacred secrecy and the written confidences of women aro guarded by strict
professional j.-'.vacy. Address Dr. Ii. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
