Quick Way to End
Why let a dangerous cough hang on
when you can, through a simple treat
ment, get speedy relief and often break
it up completely in 24 hours?
This treatment is based on the fa
mous Dr. King’s New Discovery for
Coughs. You take just one teaspoon
ful and hold it in your throat for 15 or
20 seconds before swallowing it. It has
a double action. It not only soothes
and heals irritation, but also removes
the phlegm and congestion which are
the real cause of the coughing. So the
worst cough quickly disappears.
Dr. King’s New Discovery is for
coughs., chest colds, bronchitis, spas
modic croup, etc. Fine for children,
too—no harmful drugs. Very econom
ical. as the dose is only one teaspoon

REVEALS SECRET OF
ROMANOV fMLE HEIR
j Merchant say& iw Consul
: Sought “Magic” Water.
New York. —A fantastic “imperial
i secret that hud its inception on a New
York farm and Its conclusion in the
court of the Romanovs has been told
after 20 years of silence by Edward
Hatch, a New York merchant, former
member of the firm of Lord & Taylor.
The story began in 1008. The ill
luck of the Romanov dynasty re
strained Mr. Hatch from revealing It
for many years. Then it grew dim
in memory and retrospection made its
details even seem more improbable.
He continued to keep quiet until a
few days ago when, he said, lie talked
with a woman who had been close to
the former German court, and she told
him which corroborated
his story. *
Tells of Farm Hoodoo.
This was Mr. Hatch’s story:
In 1908 a New York newspaper pub
lished an account of the lamentable
state of affairs on the Hatch farm
near Brewster, N. Y. Eighty-five per
cent of all the animals born there
were males, said the paper. Bulls that
might have sold for thousands of dol
lars went to the butcher for what
they would bring because the market
was flooded. A flock of 30 ewes bore
26 males. All the chickens were roost
ers. Even the turkeys and carrier
pigeons suffered from the hoodoo. Thf„
l.ouse cat Kad seven kittens, and six
were tom cats. *- - 1 * •* r ir‘ r
A hired man and his wife on the
farm had five sons. Even the corn
would grow only on stubs and sci
entists said it was male corn.
Soon after the story was published,
Mr. Hatch said, a stranger questioned
him about it at his store. He wanted
an explanation. Mr. Hatch said he
thought it might be water, which
analysis had shown, contained much
phosphorus and magnesium.
The stranger then introduced him
self as the Russian consul. He wanted
a sample of the water. Mr. Hatch
A few days later the stranger ap
peared at the farm with two uni
formed attendants. With consider
able ceremony they tilled a keg with
lie water. The consul insisted on
-ealing the bung himself, with elabo
rate rites. Mr. Hatch asked for what
ourpose the water was wanted. The
only answer he could get was: •
“Just an experiment.”
Russian Male Heir Born.
A year later cable dispatches report
ed that a male heir had been born to
.he imperial Russian throne. The pre
ceding children of the czar bad been
Mr. Hatch called on the Russian
consul. His questions were evaded,

Says Bobbed Heads
Cause Loss of Hair
"New York. —Women who bobbed
their hair seven years ago have 50
per cent less hair now than they had
then, Frank Parker, hair expert, told
several hundred members of the Amer
ican Master Hair Dressers’ association.
The association opened its two-day an
nual convention at which was sounded |
the keynote, “Death to the bob!*’
Tight - hats worn by women with
short hair, duplicating the condition
co which common baldness of men
is attributed, may be the cause of the
oss of hair by women, Mr. Parker
■add. Charles Nessler, president of
the association, made the same state
“Nature must compensate for this
discouragement to hair growing on the
* bead, and it has been predicted that
t race of short-haired women will be
i race of bearded women,” said Mr.
’arker. “I think the bob is doomed,
lowever. In 1878 women did the same
lung. They cut off their hair and
nurdered the hair dressing business.
r n 1803 they did the same. Both times
hey got over it. They will now.”

■ whimper that just reached the Wil
low’s ears. Slowly she stretched in
an arm. It w’as bare and round and
soft. He might have darted forward
the length of his body and buried his
fangs in It easily. But something held
him back. He knew that it was not an
enemy; he know that the dark eyes
shining at him so wonderfully were
not filled with the desire to harm —
and the voice that came to him softly
was like a strange and thrilling music.
“Baree! Baree! Upi Baree!”
Over and over again the Willow
culled to him like that, while on her
face she tried to draw herself a few
inches farther under the rock. She
could not reach him. There was still
a foot between her hand and Baree.
and she could not wedge herself in an
Inch more. And then she saw where”
on the other side of the rock there
was a hollow, shut in h,v a stone. If
she had removed the stone, and come
in that way—
She drew herself out and stood once
more in the sunshine. Her heart
thrilled. Pierrot was busy over his
bear —and site would not call him. She
made an effort to move the stone
which closed in the hollow under the
big bowlder, but it was wedged in
tightly. Then she began digging with
a stick. If Pierrot had been there, his
sharp eyes would have discovered the
significance of that stone, which was
not larger than a water pail. Possibly
for centuries it had lain there, itr*
support keeping the huge rock from
toppling down, just as an ounce-weight
may swing the balance of a wheel that
Five minifies —and Nepeese conic
move the stone. She tugged at it.
Inch by inch she dragged it out until
at last it lay at her feet and the
opening was ready for her body. She
looked again toward Pierrot. He wa?
still busy, and she laughed softly as
she untied a big Ra?
handkerchief from about her shoul
ders. With this she would secure
Baree. She dropped on her hands and
knees and then lowered herself flat
on the ground and began crawling into
the hollow under the bowlder.
Baree had moved. With the bad
of his head flattened against tlie rock,
he had heard something which Nepeese
had not heard; he lmd felt a slow and
growing pressure, and from this pres
sure lie had dragged himself slowly—
and the pressure slill followed. The
mass of rock was settling! Xopoes
did not see or hear or understand.
She was calling to him more and more
“Baree —Baree —Baree —”
Her head and shoulders and hot!
arms were under the rock now. Tin
glow of her eyes was very close t(
Baree. He whined. The thrill of v
great and impending danger stirred i:.
his blood. And then —
In that moment Nepeese fc.lt tin
pressure of the rock on her shoulder
and into the eyes that had been glow
ing softly at Baree there shot a slid
den wild look of horror. And then
there came from her lips a cry that
was not like any other sound Bare<
i had ever heard in the wilderness—
I wild, piercing, filled with agonized
fear. Pierrot did not hoar that first
j cry. But he heard the second sine
I the third —and then scream aftei

speed of the wind. The cries were

as he came out from under the roof
and ran into the canyon, and in tin
same instant he saw a part of the Wil
low's dress and her moccasined feel
The rest of her was hidden under tie
death-trap. Like a madman Pi err o’
| began digging. When a few moment;
j later he drew Nepeese out from unde;
i the bowlder she was white and death

out of his soul. Blit he feuew how t
fij-ht for a life. He tore open he

ran for water. When lie returned, th
Willow’s eyes were open and she wa
, gasping for breath.
“ThO blessed saints be praised!
sobbed Pierrot, falling on his knees »
her side. “Nepeese, ma Nepees: !’’
She smiled at him, with her rv;
hands on her bare breast, and Fierr
hugged her up to him, forgetting U
water he had run so hard to get.
Still later, when he got down on h.
knees and Deered under the rock, h* -
race uu len wmte ana ne saia:
“Men Dieu, if it had not been for
that Httle hollow fr the ea* .

Pierrot’s face darkened as he ben
“Non!” he said fiercely. “Never
. He was thinking again of McTufi
gart, the factor at Lac Bain, and hi:'
hands clenched while his lips softlj
touched the Willow’s hair.
Impelled by the. wild alarm , of the*-..
Willow’s terrible cries and the sight of
Pierrot dashing madly toward him !
from the dead body of Wakayoo, Baree
did not stop running until it seemed
as though his lungs could not'draw
another breath. When he stopped he
was well out of the canyon and headed •
for the beaver pond.
Exactly wherein lay Boree’s fears it
would be difficult to say—but surely
it was not because of Nepeese. The
Willow had chased him hard. She had
flung herself upon him. He had felt
the clutch of her hands and the smoth
er of her soft hair, and yet of her he
was not afraid 1 If he stopped now
.and then indite flight and looked back,
It was to see if Nepeese was following.
He would not have run hard from her
—alone. Her eyes and voice and
hands had something stirring in him;
he was filled with a greater yearning
and a greater loneliness now—and that
night he dreamed troubled dreams.
Baree was glad when the dawn
came. He did not seek for food, bnt
went down to the pond. There was
ittle hope and anticipation in his man
nor now. He remembered that, as
plainly as animal ways could talk
Urni.sk and his playmates had told hiir.
they wanted nothing to do with him
And yet the fact that they were tlier<
took away some of his loneliness. It
was more than loneliness. The woli
!n him was submerged. The dog war
master. And in these passing mo
ments, when the blood of the wild was,
almost dormant in him, he was do
pressed by the instinctive and growin;
feeling that he was not of that wild
nit a fugitive in it, menaced on al
ides by strange dangers.
Deep in the northern forests the
'caver does not work and play in dark
less only, but uses day even more than
light, and many of Beaver-tooth’s peo
de were awake when Baree began dis
consolately to investigate the shores
>f the pond. He did not try to hide
diuself now, and at least half a dozen
'eavers had a good look at him before
•e came to the point where the pond
arrowed down to the width of the
’■roam, almost half a mile from tlm
’am. Th'en he wandered hack. All
hat morning lie hovered about the
opd. showing himself onenlv.
