Bessie Martin was the only daughter
and only child for that matter of Fann-
er Martin and his wifs. Bhs .had com
boms from the academy on her summer
vacation and at 1 years old she was
handsome enough and cute enough to
turn the heads of a dozen young men be-
tween daylight and dark.
Ever sine her Bixtrcnih birthday she
had been 'somewhat engaged" as she
expressed It to Will Burt son ot the
village merchant and previous to her
going to school he had driven out to ths
farm once or twice every week. 'Farmer
Martin and his wife had looked upon It
as a case of "calf love" and had neither
encouraged nor discournRt-d but when
three years had passed in ths same fash-
Ion things had begun to look mora seri-
ous. The engagement was announced
with the consent of the parents on both
I.ovs did not run smoothly however."
Iievaio wanted to put In one more term
and graduate and Will insisted on mar-
riage in the fall. Both bdng quick-tempered
and Impulsive they had had nfany.
a small Quarrel before but on this oo-
cation it threatened to degenerate Into
ill had driven out to the farm in the
firt-ion to urge the matter from his
standpoint and as Bessie had that day
feten ohased by a cow stung by a bum-
ble bee and fallen down the back steps
see was in no mood for gentle argu-
ment. It wasn't long before the pair were
at iogxerneao.8 ana wneu tne young man
left Ute house to Jump Into his buagy
and drive furiously away. It was with
the understanding that if he never re-
turned no hearts would be broken.
Ua me but how sillyl" exclaimed the
mother as she came In from the kitchen
an. I found Bessie kneeling on the lloor
with her head burled in the lounge and
sobs choking her utterance.
"Do do you you suppose I'm going
to let Will Burt boss me nround as If T
wece a child!'' exclaimed the girl as she
si rJng to Iter feet and dashed the tears
"1 don't think he wants to boss."
"He does. He not only wants to boss
but he's selfish. I told him I'd almost
been hooked by a cow was stung by a
t-utnble bee and had a fall l.ut did he
en down and hold my hand nnd pity me?
Not a pltyl He Just went on to tell me
that he could buy a house and all that
find that we'd be married In October. Hs
talked as'if I had no voice In the mat-
ter." "Oh. come now."
"It isn't as If I couldn't have forty
ether beaux if I wanted em. I don't like
liis saying that he's going to do this and
l;es going to do that. Just as If he ran
the earth. He knew I'd cry when he was
g ne. but did he even turn to look at the
house when he drove away? He knows
how it hurts to be stung by a bumble
lee. but when l showed him the swelling
rn my left arm. did he say it 'was too
lad' and kiss It?"
"He probuhly forgot." soothed the
mother as s3v handed over her gingham
apron as a tear wiper. "I know one
l:me when your father was courting me 1
f"ll off a fence and "
"But I'm not talking about you and
pa.' Interrupted Bessie as a fresh as-
Fnrtment of sobs threatened to stick in
her throat. "Will Burt finds me a suf-
ferer and what does he do to cheer nte
tip: .N'utliing. On the contrary he makes
me miserable and drives me into saying
mat I could marry some one better
titan him before sundown. I know 1
cot:ld too but I 1 '
"Well now you go'n lie down a while
until that bee-sting gits better and you
El t over bein' nervous. Will will proba-
ly be out here tomorrow to beg your
lardon and tell you that he ts awfully
s-rry. I'll .wet a rag In camphor and
put It on your forehead and If you can
sleep for an hour or two you'll be all
right. Y'our father and 1 had fifty dif-
ferent spats afore we were married but
never a one since. Come daughter."
1 he girl slept not only for an hour
but for three. Bhe was then awakened
by her mother who explained that she
and the father had to drive to town to
p- about some legal business and that
Bessie must mind the house tor the aft-
ernoon. A quarter of an hour later they
were off and. after taking a little walk
tn the garden and reading a story. Bessie
happened to remeatter that the cream
was tnne churn ready to be beaten into
butter thai evening so she .decided to
go ahead with It. 'he churn was placed
near the -open kitchen door and when
sle first sat down she had a book In
her left hand. Thoughts of Will Burt
were uppermost however and gradually
the book sank down to her lap and she
worked the dasher and reflected at the
same time: . .
if I hadn't been chased by a cow-ana
stung by a bumble bee and fell down
the steps and rolled over among the
weeds-and was feeling all broken up It
wouldn't have mattered-but he never
Pitied me-and he didn't ask to see the
ting and he wanted everything his way
and when he knew I was jetting mad
and I say I Won't stand It 1 won t I
won't-I won't! If Will Burt don t come
back and say he's sorry-he can lust go
to pot-and i ll yes I'll marry some one
""tifood for. youe-gal!" exclaimed a rough
voice at the door; and she sprang away
fr6m tie churn with a scream to f'nd
herself facing the toughest-looking tr.tmp
he had ever seen.
"No call to git skeert. gal" he said as
be entered the room and closed the door.
"I was lyln' urder the hedge when the
old folks drove away and I know ye
are alone In the house. I ain t half bad
unless I'm riled. When I'm riled.- then
look out. Now then don't mike any
mistakes. Firstly put some wlttles on

This Is to certify that our dear little babe of eleven months was sick
with malarial fever and lung bowel and kidney complications for seven
weeks during which time five different doctors of Houstun treated her and
she gradually grew weaker and on Thursday night April 27 19U4 she had
five degrees of fever and we thought it would be only a few hours until God
would take her home. -
We noticed Dr. Davis' ad. and grasping at a straw we found what has
proven the restoration of our sweet little one. Within 30 minutes after Dr.
Davis came in our home the child was in a profuse perspiration and the fever
gone and under Drs. Davis and Couch's tonic treatment our little darling
is getting brighter every day. playing on the floor and sending her merry
laugh to our gladdened hearts.
This statement comes from the depths of our hearts wltn ths sincere
desire that It may bring to others the happiness It has to us and save some
Innocent and helpless child from the suffering our darling bns endured.
