The Breton coast of France la a wild
but very beautiful region. Artists go

scenery, but In the simple peasantry
which lives there. On that coast are
lighthouses such as really protect

One of these lighthouse* was recent
ly the scene of a story—a real story
such as few authors of Action can In

lives of many who were sailing or
steaming over the ocean unconscious
of what was going on under ths light
in the dwelling portion of this light
house the keeper lay dying. He had
that morning been la his usual health,
but was suddenly taken ill. Never
theless he kept at his work of prepar
ing the light against the evening. His
wife knew nothing about the lampa or
the machinery by which they were
made to alternately shine and disap
pear. His children were a boy and a
girl—the boy nine, the-girl eleven years
old. There waa no one near the light
house to call upon to take up the light
house keeper's duties when the night
Nor was there any doctor that could
administer to his physical aliments.
The keeper grew worse. Still be kept
at his work till the afternoon when he
was obliged to give up and go to bed.
He bad cleaned the lamps. Oiled them
with oil and In every way got there
ready to be lighted, bat either he had
not had time or the strength to wind
up the great weights that* turned the
machinery, causing the revolutions—
revolutions by which the light was
made to flash.
When night came on the keeper was
drawing his last breath. His wife
was praying by his bedside; bis chil
dren were standing wondering at this
their first sight of deatb—death that
made their mother a widow and them
fatherless. Tbere were a few long
breaths, the Intervals between them
growing greater, a rattle in the throat
and tbe keeper was dead.
As soon as tbe widow could suffi
ciently recover from tbe death scene
she thought of the lives that might
be wrecked from her husband's being
thus suddenly taken away from bis
work of protection. It was a danger
ous coast Skippers bad been used to
seeing the light and counting the sec
onds between Its flashes, and then they
knew where they were. If it failed to
shine they would run out of their
The widow roused herself, and, tak
ing ber children vrtth ber, went up into
the lighthouse. She lighted the lamps,
but she could not make tbe machinery
revolve. A light that did not flash in
tbe place where a flashlight should be
would be as misleading to sailors as no
light at all.
The little girl placed herself at tbe
revolving apparatus and found that it
turned easily. She pushed it around,
making the circuit under ber mother's
direction in the time it was used to
revolve, then she said to her mother:
"Mamma, go back to father. We
children will turn tbe machinery and
make tbe light flash."
So the mother, wbose grief, more
keen than tbat of childhood, sapped
her power*, went back to the bedside
of her dead husband to pray, tearing
ber children the only barrier between
lives out on the ocean and the rocks
that were ready to engulf them. .The
girl turned till she was tired, then Iter
little brother took up tbe work. When
he became tired she relieved him.
And so the children worked on while
their father lay dead below and their
mother prayed bealde him. And the
captains and the aallors on the vessels
that passed, coming and going, looked
at the light apd wondered that it now
lost, now gained, a few seconds. And
persons In their berths below slept
soundly, not dreaming tbat they owed

Midnight passed, tbe small hours of

Milk fever is Invariably confined to

Her Idve waa to offer acbolarablpe
In Wlntbrop college, and abe tried to

How abe got tba money la another
Then abe began organising the
glrla' tomato clnba, each girt cultivat
ing ono-tentb of an acre. She ctadlet*
and tangbt and laetured on aclentitle
A great auccaaa And whan the crop
waa ripe each of the clnba had a can
ning picnic. One club canned 0,000
cana of tomatoaa and aold the product
at 10 centa per can-fOOa
One girl, a prlie winner, got SM

"Cardui Cured Me" I
For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Mary Jinks I
of Tread way, Tena, suffered with womanly troubles. She I
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die. I I
could not sleep. I couldn't eat I had pains all over. The fl
doctors gave me up. I read that Cardui had helped so I
many, and I began to take tt, and it cured me. Cardui I
saved my life] Now, I can do anything."
CARDUI WON&NIC I
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of I
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache, I
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, side, hip I
or limbs, and other symptoms of womanly you I
should try Cardui, the woman's tonic ' Prepared from per- I
fectly harmless, vegetable Ingredients, Cardui is the best I
remedy for you to use, as it can do you nothing but good. I
It contains no dangerous drugs. It has no bad after-effects. I
Ask your druggist He sells and recommends CarduL
