Giaconia.i'f** ha,dl*e,larrealf1 °° charge of purposing to reveal the plans The winter of 1779 was approaching spring. But it was still dismally cold, and all day there had been a drip, drip of chilly rain around a two-story farmhouse which clung to a New Jersey hillside, a short distance from Morristown, where the American army under Gen. Washington was encamped. Hope Adams, a thoughtful-faced little girl of 11, dressed in a plain, homespun gown, sat by the bedside of her feeble grandfather, and strove earnestly to divert the invalid's mind from the noises which came from the kitchen downstairs. "Never mind, grandfather," she said, comfortingly. "They are American soldiers and will not do us harm, though they be rude. If only Gen. Washington knew of their behavior, I know he would send them away. There, don't mind— please don't I" she pleaded, bending over the nervous sufferer and smoothing the gray locks away from the aged face. A hoarse voice sang a bit of army song; boisterous cheers followed; then came the sound of tinkling mugs and the troopers seated around the kitchen fire resumed their rough exchange of jokes. These noises all penetrated -to the little chamber, disturbing the peace of the sick man and awakening fresh apprehensions in Hope's young heart. Twice that afternoon she had crept downstairs, twice had she begged the men not to be so boisterous, and twice bad they promised, only to fail in keeping that promise. It is due those soldiers, however, to say that they respected the little girl's request and tried to obey her. But their good resolutions were drowned deeper and deeper each moment as they freely quaffed mug after mug of the hard cider, a cask of which they had discovered in the cellar. Hope listened and shuddered at the sounds of increasing revelry. She felt that she dare not trust herself down there a third time. Yet, brave little Continental girl, she would gladly have gone had she thought that her errand stood the remotest chance of meeting with success. "AH if it were not bad enough to arrest my brave son on suspicion of bis being a traitor," the old man moaned bitterly, "they must suspect us of being Tories and guard our home as though we were in actual league with the enemy. William a Traitor! We Tories! The name of Adams was never before connected with such vile charges. And I suffering from a gunshot wound received not two weeks ago while fighting for my country! Ah! it is terrible, terrible, indeed!" He had partly risen in his excitement, but slowly fell back weakly on the pillow, as the wound in bis shoulder sent a shaft of pain through his body. "Yes, grandfather," it is hard for us," spoke his grandchild, soothingly, "but do not worry if you can help it. Father is not a traitor, and he must come clear of the charge." And there was a flash of determination in her dark eyes. "Heaven bless you, Hope," replied the old man, placing a trembling hand on her crown of nut-brown curls. "We will pray for the vindication of your father's good name and his restoration to a place of honor in the American army. It can't be that he must die as a traitor—my son, so brave and loyal 1" "No, no, grandfather 1" assured the little girl. "He will not." It required no little effort for Hope to keep up a semblance of cheerfulness be fore the invalid, for her own heart was sorely oppressed with troubles. Only that day had the unpleasant news been brought them that brave William Adams, the old soldier's son and Hope's Member of the Normal School Ass'n Masters of Dancing.

He indignantly denied the charge, but a mysterious paper found on him bad caused grave thoughts. He had attempted to explain that he knew nothing about the fatal paper, but his explanation had not been found sufficient to save him from arrest. A few troopers under a sub-officer had been detailed to watch the house of the prisoner's father, who, despite his age and the fact that he had just been sent Don't believe anybody who tells you that you need drastic drugs that purge and gripe when you are slightly constipated or bilious. There is a medicine that is pleasant to take, easy and mild in action, but absolutely thorough in effect, and a-month's treatment costs a quarter, It is Ramon's Liver Pills and Tonio Pellets, the great modern treatment. Sold at E N Smith's, this village, or W A Metcglf, Hazard ville, home from the ranks, wounded, was forthwith suspected of being a Tory and an abettor of his son. These soldiers had no orders to enter the farmhouse. It was the inclement weather, seeming to pierce to the very marrow of their bones, which induced them to seek shelter indoors, and that shelter once sought, the great fire in the big fireplace in the wide old kitchen was found far too comfortable to leave. It had been a weary day to the prisoner at Morristown, and a very sad one to Hope and the old grandfather. The presence of the troopers increased their fears, and it was not until long in the night that (the rude jollity below stairs having ceased) the nervous sufferer became somewhat quiet Then Hope sang to him, soft and low, as a mother to a sick child, and soon she had the satisfaction of seeing the wrinkled eyelids close over the weary eyes. But she did not cease her singing until the regular breathing told her that her grandfather slept soundly. She then arose noiselessly, and, going to the window, looked out into the dark night. It was growing still colder without,and the rain had ceased. "I must go," she declared, resolutely. "If I can but see Gen. Washington, I am sure he will not let father die a traitor's death. He is too good to suffer such a terrible wrong to be done. "Grandfather will bq likely to sleep while I am gone," she went on, her eyes filling with tears as she looked on the peaceful face of the sleeper, "and if I bring back good news he will soon be well again, and we'll all be happy once more." Wrapping a shawl about her head and shoulders, Hope let herself out of the chamber, quietly secured the door, and descended the dark stairway. As she stole cautiously along the hall, her heart in a tumult of emotions, she saw, through the half-open door leading into thd kitchen, that the troopers were either asleep or heavily dozing. In another moment she was outside in the night and the cold. Never pausing to see if her flight had been discovered by the drowsy guard, she ran like a frightened fawn along the lane, under the trees and down the hillside. The night was very dark. Great, dense black clouds scudded across the heavens as if they were mockingly endeavoring to outstrip her; and but the merest fragment of a new moon, with a few bashful stars, could be seen through a drift, well down in the western sky. Ordiiiarily.aacti a night would have been wild and full of terrors to poor little Hope. Now, however, it was different, and she sped dauntlessly along the lonely path which led across the fields towards Morristown, General Washington and— freedom for her father. She had gone nearly a mile from home when she came to a stream, swollen almost into a torrent by the recent thaw and rains. Hope ran along the marshy bank until she found the place—spanned by two long planks—used as a bridge by the country folk who wished to shorten the distance to town. She started to cross the plank. Every instant the turbid, ice-cold water, rushing angrily beneath the frail structure, threatened to tear away the flimsy props supporting it. But the little girl—she was an Adams—went bravely forward. When near the middle of the stream, a water-fowl arose from beneath her and flew away over her head, with wild, frightened cries. So unexpected, so sudden was its appearance that Hope started back nervously. The planks were icy where the rain had frozen on them the evening before and, her feet slipping, she fell and came near to being thrown into the stream. With desperate strength she held firmly on to the plank and tried to draw her body up. But* her little frail arms were unequal to the task and there she hung with feet dangling in the foaming water. The fragment of moon freed itself from the sable clouds and dimly lighted the scene, revealing the pallid faced, terror-stricken child clinging to the icy timber. One moment she clung in awful peril; then a tall figure stepped swiftly out on the bridge and Hope was lifted by a pair of strong arms and carried safely to the opposite bank. Looking up, half shyly, as the moon continued to lend her feeble light, Hope's clear eyes scanned her rescuer. He was very tall, very erect and was wrapped in a gray cloak. 'My child"—and the dark figure bent over her kindly—"it is a dark, cold night for you to be abroad. "Where is your home?" 'Back there on the hill," answered Hope, pointing across the stream. "Had you started home?" he questioned her gently. "No, sir. I was going to Morristown." "Have you friends there whom you wish to see?" "No—yes, sir—that is—" Hope stopped in confusion. Perhaps she was saying too much to a stranger. The stranger evidently understood her thoroughly, for he said, reassuringly: "Do not fear telling me. I am your friend." One glance into his smiling gray eyes, BETTER THAN GOLD.- "I was troubled for several years with chronic indigestion and nervous debility," writes F. J. Green of Lancaster, N. H , "No remedy helped me until 1 began using Electric Bitters, which did me more good t.han all the medicines I ever used. They have also kept my wife in excellent health for years. She says Electrio Bit-; ters are just splendid for female troubles; that they are a grand tonic and invigora-' tor for weak, run down women. No other medicine can take its place in our family." Try them. Only 50o. Satisfaction guaranteed by E N Smith, this, place, and. W A Jfetoaft Hazardville. and Hope felt that she could trust him implicitly. ' 'I had started for the American camp," she said, simply. "What takes you there at this unseemly hour and in such inclement weather?" "My troubles, sir." And there was a pathetic tremor in her voice which caused her new friend to place a hand compassionately on her damp, brown curls. "And whom did you hope to see there?" "Gen. Washington." "Gen. Washington is not in the habit of receiving visits from little girls at such late hours," he replied gravely. "Ob!" exclaimed she, pathetically, a sense of her impropriety dawning upon her. "Well, never mind, dear. Trust me with your troubles. I have great influence with the commander-in-chief, and may be able to help you." "Do you know Gen. Washington, sir?" she cried, brightening, and catching one of his hands in her eagerness. "Do you really know him?" "Yes, little one, I know him well." "And will you tell him my story and help me?" "I will help you if I can. Now, tell me, my child, what has driven you forth this dark, cold night to seek Gen. Washington at his headquarters?" Thus urged, Hope told how news had reached the farmhouse of her father's arrest on the charge of being a traitor, how it had affected her grandfather confined to his bed from a wound received while in the discharge of what he considered— old as he was—his simple duty, and how the troopers had terrified them with their rude behavior. "What is your name, little one?" her listener asked, when she had finished. "Hope Adams," she answered. "And your father is " "William Adams, sir." "Do not worry any longer, Hope. I give you my promise that Gen. Washington will do all he can for your father." ' 'Oh, thank you, sir 1 God will be good to you. Save my father, for there is no braver soldier, no truer American in all the colonies. Not one!" she said with earnest, dilating eyes. "The father of such a daughter cannot be very bad, no matter bow dark is the suspicion cast upon him," remarked the man in the gray cloak, more to himself than to the little girl. "There must be some mistake. The case must receive prompt attention." Then again taking Hope up in his strong arms ho carried ner over the stream and led her back to the farmhouse. On the threshold he paused and said in a gentle, cheery way: "Now, Hope, run up to your wounded grandfather and tell him that the troopers shall annoy him no longer. Tbis is not a Tory household." Hope hastened to do his bidding, while he stepped into the kitchen and called the sub-officer of the troopers to him. The soldiers bestirred themselves before the cozy old fireplace, exchanged startled glances and made a vain attempt to put suspicious-looking cask and several mugs out of sight. The conference between the newcomer and the sub-officer was short. The trooper soon returned to his fellows. 'We are ordered back to headquarters at once," he announced. "This farmhouse needs no more watching." The tall figure in the gray cloak stood on one side, while the troopers filed out into the darkness and away toward the American camp. He seemed lost in thought as he gazed after the retreating forms of the men. Presently there were light steps hurrying down the stairs, and a little hand touched his arm softly. "Did you send them away?" "Yes, Hope. How is your grandfather?" he asked, coming back from his reverie. 'He seemed much relieved when I told him of your kindness and what you had said." "I am glad to hear it, and I think there is no cause for further fear, my child." 'We are very thankful, sir—grandfather and I, "she said. "And if Gen. Washington will set my father free I will love him all my life." "He will do all he can, and think a love such as little Hope Adams can give a rich reward. God keep you, little Hope," and he stooped and imprinted a tender kiss upon the child's brow. Then he crossed the threshold, said Good-night," and was gone, like a tall, gray phantom, down the hillside. As Hope fastened the door she said to herself, with sudden regret: - "Isn't he kind? And I forgot to ask his name." The next day a trooper stopped at the farmhouse door and placed a letter in Hope's hands. Running upstairs to her grandfather, she cried joyfully: "Listen, grandfather!" And in a happy voice she read the following note:— "My Dear Little Hope—It was Gen. Washington himself who promised you last night to do what he could in behalf of your father. His case has been investigated, and the real traitor in camp (who was jealous of the chance of promotion which bad come to William Adams) has been discovered. It was he A WEAK STOMACH causes a weak body and invites disease. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure oures and strengthens the stomaoh, and wards off and overcomes disease. J. C.

All that money could do was done, but all hope of recovery vanished. Hearing of some wonderful cures effected by the use of Kodol, I concluded to try it.

Of your father's promotion, which is now certain, I will not speak, for he will be with you to-day. Would that all of our daughters were as brave and true in tbis time of sore distress as you, little Hope. "Your obedient servant, "GEORGE WASHINGTON." "And the man in the gray cloak was General Washington all the time! Oh, grandfather, isn't he good?" "Noble!" said the old man, his face glowing with pride. And from that day forth no American ever reverenced the memory of George Washington more than little Hope Adams, nor—who can deny me?—with better cause.

If not, pay a few cents more for the GOLD SEAT. BRAND. They will last you at the very least twice as long as any other first quality and those with "coasting" soles thrice as long. The Gold Seal brand has been made by the Goodyear Rubber Co. for nearly thirty years, and an unvarying standard of excellence has always been maintained throughout this period. They are made of PARA RUBBER only, the most expensive gum imported and they contain absolutely no shoiddy. Tou can save money by wearing Gold Seal. If you have been buying for yourself, or your children, two or three pairs of rubbers to last the winter through-one pair of Gold Seal will give the serv-vice of from two to three pairs of ordin-rubbers. inter of '97 and '98—3 pairs of common rubbers at 50c, 11.50 ; winter of '98' and '99, 1 pair of Gold Seal with coasting soles, 85c; what one woman saved, 65c. The following cut from a Lynn news-papei: 1894, 15 pairs cheap rubbers at 45o, $6.75; 1895, 15 pairs cheap rubbers at 45c, $6.75; 1896, 4 pairs Gold Seal at 00c, " $2.40; 1897, 2 pairs Gold Seal at 60o, 1.20; 1 pair same at 80c, $2. The above is the actual experience of a man with three daughters; it needs no comments. We have similar testimonials from all over the country indicating the great wearing^ qualities of Gold Seal rubbers. Insist on having Gold Seal. If you onoe discover their merit you will always want them. Do not accept any statement that you can buy some other kind " just, as good" for they excel all others in quality. Remember the date when you bought them, and watoh them to see now; they wear. ry ri WI ill©!
