Mr. Robert H. Norris, No. 1333 Hen-
xy St., North Berkeley, Cal., writes:
•“We have never had any other medi-
cine but Peruna in our home since we
bave been married. I Suffered with
kidney and bladder trouble, but two
-months treatment with Peruna made
me a well and strong man. My wife
telt weak and was easily tired and
was also troubled with various pains,
but since she took Peruna she is well
spent most of her life in school, arrives
at her father’s home in Belmont. David
Kerr is the political boss of the town,
and Is anxious to prevent his daughter
learning of his real character. Kendall,
representing the Chicago packers, is ne-
gotiating with Judge-Gilbert'. Kerr’s chief
adviser, for 'a valuable franchise. They
fear the opposition of Joe Wright, editor
of the reform paper. Kerr asks the as-
sistance of Judge Gilbert in introducing
Gloria to Belmont society, and promises
to help him put through the packers’
franchise and let him have all the graft.
Gloria meets Joe Wright at the Gilberts.
It appears they are on intimate terms,
having met previously in a touring party
in Europe. Gloria twits Wright on his
failure to keep an engagement to meet
her in Paris. He explains that the death
of his mother prevented his going to
Paris. The Gilberts invite Gloria to stay
with them pending the refurnishing of the
Kerr home. One society bud who ’refused
to meet Gloria is forced to do so when
her father is made to feel Kerr’s power.

world for his mate and she had an-
Wright would have gone further,
have made a formal declaration, but
first he wanted several things settled.
He felt that he could not stay in Bel-
mont if he married Gloria. How to get
rid of the paper was a question. He
hoped through a newspaper broker to
trade it for one in some other place.
Then he and Gloria could begin life
tliere together. The News was begin-
ning to make money, paying its way
and leaving sothething for future pay-
ments on the property. Best of all,
there was no fight on his hands which
would hold him in Belmont.
Mrs. Gilbert came into Gloria’s room
to kiss her good night after the ball.
"When they had talked over the affair
for an hour the girl cried in the ec-
stasy of her joy..
“Oh, Mrs. Gilbert, tonight I am the
happiest girl in the -whole wide world.”
On that very night Alderman Grune-
waid introduced an ordinance giving
the Belmont Interurban Railway, a
new corporation, right of way down
Maple Avenue and making provision
that a small depot should be provided

Eldrid Reynolds, the young English
woman who is the author of the novel
“Whispering Dust,” belongs to an old
Yorkshire family, and numbers among
her ancestors Elizabeth Fry, the
prison reformer, the poet Bloomfield
and James Ward and George More-
land. both noted as painters. Miss
Reynolds spent her childhood on the
wide, heather-covered Yorkshire moors
and the wild Cornish coast. The pas-
sion for space, freedom and the im-
mensities which she voices in “Whis-
pering Dust” is doubtless the result of
her early environment.
The book itself is the result of a
winter on the Mediterranean and in
Egypt, but the heroine, who after
thirty years of cramping duties as “a
niece" longs .to accomplish something,
can by no means be identified with
the author. Miss Reynolds has accom-
plished a great deal in less than thirty
years. She created stories before she
■could read; wrote, acted and produced
plays for home and school before she
reached her teens; published her first
story at sixteen and her first novel,
"Red of the Rock.” at twenty. She
lias a decided talent for drawing and
singing and her favorite recreations

His question was put to the elderly
pedestrian. Behind the boy came
other boys, all peering eagerly into
the pedestrian’s puzzled face.
They hung to his footsteps until he
found himself, a little further on, in

youngsters. Each boy clamored for

Then came a sudden light and the
old man smiled broadly. He went to
the ticket window of an adjacent
moving-picture theater, where he
paused to count faces.
“Nine tickets,” he said.
“There is a law against children,”
objected the ticket man. “Are those
little people with you?”
“They are,” declared the old man.

He also knew what Gloria had come
to mean to him, and after what they
had said last night he was afraid to
see her alone. Now his first duty was
to the public, that public which so
often accepts benefits and sacrifices

MAKES ECZEMA VANISH
When Wright reached his office the
morning after the ball, he found his
attorney, Arthur Morrison, waiting for
him. He had been drawn to Morrison
the first time he had met him and
had asked him to take care of the pa-
per’s legal business. In this his judg-
ment had not been warped by a sud-
den friendship, for the young lawyer
was worthy of Ms confidence. Like
Judge Gilbert, he had risen from an
humble home, but unlike the adviser
of Belmont corporations he had made
his way independently of the malign
influences which constantly seem to
seek to attract young men of talent
who follow the law as a profession.
To him both as his legal adviser and
his friend, Wright had talked freely
and had rejoiced to learn that Morri-
son’s ideals and hopes for Belmont
were the same as his own.
“Even if you hadn’t asked me to
watch things with you while you are
still a stranger to Belmont,” Morrison
began, “I think I would have

Backache Warns You
Backache is one of Nature’s warnings
of kidney weakness. Kidney disease
kills thousands every year.
Don’t neglect a bad back. If your back
is lame—if it hurts to 3toop or lift—if
there is irregularity of the secretions—
suspect your kidneys. If you suffer head-
aches, dizziness and are tired, nervous
and worn-out, you have further proof.
Use Doan’s Kidney Pills, a fine rem-
edy for bad backs and weak kidneys.
