PIE Original.1 While making a journey recently 1 fell in with a married couple who for urbanity, cheerfulness, kindliness, indeed every trait calculated to make their own and other lives pleasant beat anything I had ever met, "1 have been trying," I said to the gentleman, "to fix in my mind your calling may" be. I can't quite make you out. You are neither a lawyer, a doctor nor a clergyman. Nor do you appear to be a man of business." The gentleman pulled a card from his pocket and handed it to me. I read: -3 MR.

AND MRS. WORTHINGTON BLISS. Healers of domestic wounds. I looked from the card to the face of the man with surprise aud inquiry. "It is surprising," he said, "that you should be surprised.

There is no profession in the world calculated to do bo much good as ours. It is the only profession except medicine, of which it is in part a branch, that brings comfort out of suffering. There are matrimonial brokers and divorce lawyers. Why not peacemakers?" "What is your clientele?" "A wife is wretched from some dis agreement with her husband. A husband is wretched from some disagreement with his wife.

A daughter or eon is making his or her parents miserable either from extravagance, bad in fluences or an unsuitable match. We get at the cause, or causes of these disagreements, then set about reniov tng them, in tnia way we restore amicable relations. A better name for our profession perhaps would be 'repairers of fractured When the mechanism In which the gem love becomes weak or broken we make the necessary repairs." "But how do you accomplish re- suits?" I asked, with growing wonder, yet struck by the plausibleness of the man's words. "That will best be explained by giv- ing you a few instances. A wife re- cently came to us whose husband was apparently losing his love for her, his home and his children.

Mrs. Bliss, un. der pretense of being a former school mate of the wife, made the family a visit She soon discovered that the wife was turning, the house into a prayer meeting. It required the greatT est tact for her to convince the deluded woman of her error. A brief season of gayety was prescribed.

It worked to a charm. The husband soon tired of it, and when he did he found his home more to his taste. Mrs. Bliss possessed great skill or she could never have ef fected a cure In this case, for the lady in question was a veritable Puritan. "A father came to me and engaged my professional services ra the case of his son, who was bent on marrying a girl whom the father did not.

wish him to marry. 1 did not believe my client was giving me the real cause of his objection, and I set about discovering it. Diagnosis is as much the principal part of our profession as of medicine. I found that the cause of disease in this case was in my client himself. He had injured the father of the girl, who had been his friend.

After much difficulty I convinced him of his fault and persuaded him to go to his friend and make reparation. After this there was no objection to the wedding, and two lovers were made happy. "And you were well paid?" "Very well," indeed. There are no troubles not even at times sickness and death so dreaded as those we In this case I have just mentioned every member of both families was so delighted that, In addition to our fee of $100, all sent us checks aggregating $2,000." "Do you keep a record of your "Certainly," and it is now a long one. We also classify them.

We have thus far on our list 125 husbands and Wives reunited after separation and seventy-fpur after legal diyorce, and thirty-seven sons and eighteen daughters who had left, home in enmity. restored Besides these, we have great many cases which we put down under the head of scattering. These scattering cases are very numerous." I said, then, after som thought, 1 would; like your serylces in case nt rnv frarn Mi tvlfo hna roATitlir hA- ftmo tnfntnotort with ntti wbtnnAr.

OUR VALUED CORRESPONDENTS. We have four regular correspondents to the Leader, who are our faithful and long time friends and who range in age from 54 up into the 60's. Mr. A. J.

McClUng, of "Smoky Row;" Mr. John Bailey, Uncle Jack) of Old Elsmore; Mrs. Hattie Gullete, of Golden Valley, (or Prairie Hall) and H. W. Cox, rural carrier on itoute No.

2. The nrft two have never failed us when well and at home for many years and the last two have been faultlessly faithful since they became our benefactors a few years ago. We have several other good corres pondents whom we prize very highly, but they are among the young folks and, perhaps, would not care to hare their names mentioned in this connec tion, being more sensative, naturally, than the older "boys" apd "girls." One pebble does not make a beach; one man a town or one people a world neither can one man make a country newspaper every neighborhood and every individual can improve a paper by banding in the news items concern ing themselves or their neighbors. It is a duty you owe yourself to make the local paper a good and prosperous as possible, as it zoes forth to every towniu the county, many counties of the Btate and nearly every state in the Union, and at its destination becomes an index to the community in which jou reside, And the mbre assistance we are given the more creditable will be the paper and the better impression will it make, on those who receive it, of our country and our town and community is judged by people in other parts of the without by the appearance and contents of the local paper it trends out. Tbe Leader is wide-awake to the interests of this town and community and has put out a good appearing and newsy sheet in keeping wi the, town, but there is lots of room for improvement which can only come through the individual and united efforts of our friends.

We are not iDdependent but dependent and if every one will help jut a little the Leader will perform well its mission. ROLL OF-HONOR. Since, Feb. the following parties have favored us-by renewing or paying us money on subscription: Mr. Wm.

This Deadly Disease Is a Puzzle to the Medical World. About cancer we must admit that we know next to nothing. We don't know the cause of the disease. Except In a small proportion of very early cases, we don't know how to cure it. We don't know whether it is hereditary.

We don't know if it is induced by pe culiarities of diet. We don't know to what extent it depends upon climate. We don't know whether it is contagious or infectious. We don't know why it reserves its attacks for oldish people. We don't know why it is Increasing.

All we may do at present ia to keep a sharp lookout for Incipient In brief, we must try to kill the cancer before it really exists. The preliminary spot or pea-like growth must be removed at once. We must keep a weather eye upon inflamed places and have them looked after without delay. No one fears the removal of such tiny growths these days. Not even children are scared by small orrerations.

it is not sufficient that a family phy- sician remove the suspected growth with lancet or caustic. He has done his share if he merely sounds the warning "in time. The cutting out should be done by a thoroughly competent sur- one who has served an appren- ticeship under a master of the art and not one who has merely "dabbled in surgery while attending cases of pne monia, typhoid and measles. A good surgeon of this sort does not teniDorlze with a oanoor Ha knnw that the operation must be performed immediately and that there must be no fatuous endeavor, to conserve healthy tissue. It is far better to remove two Inches of sound flesh than to err on the cautious side and leave behind one microscopic cancer cell.

It is only by such radical merciless surgery that we may combat "cancer. must take it in time, and we must cut deep and wide, And even then we are never sure. Nature indeed is the only doctor whose skill is capable of combating Ehrlich and others have observed that of a given number of mice displaying of cancer" a certain portion recover. The same thing Is true of human beings. Luckily there is no disease, no matr ter how virulent that nature herself cannot cure, and so even in the worst cases of cancer it is well not to abandon hope.

I have myself seen several cases of such spontaneous cures. )ne patient was a wealthy Baltiniorean, whose malady, was diagnosed by an operation as cancer of the stomach. Three prominent American surgeons saw the cancer, which, was Inoperable because of its location. He submitted to a serum treatment, and three years later a second operation revealed the fact that hisi cancer had entirely disappeared, leaving a scar. Here was an undoubted case of cure.

But did the serum do the work? Its advocates maintain that it did, but a great many very learned and scientific physicians hold that it did i One Jt is; obvious, by no means establishes a Specific's efficacy.
