Some of them had been my friends for years. I had known nearly every man, woman and child for a long time. They passed me as though I were not on earth. They lowered their voices or were. silent as they passed me. I might as well have been a leper at the "Leper's Gate." I didn't know. I never understood that people were so desperately in earnest about this war. I began to notice, too, the service flags in the windows and theterv-icpins on coats and gowns.

And he watches me then, though he never attempts to speak to me." "And you've told Miss Harper?" "No, Uncle Mark. She would think I was hysterical," answered the girl, shrewdly. Mark could see that, but he was certain that it was hysteria, that the ideahad come to the child as the result of brooding over the mystery of her parentage. The entrance of the lady principal put an end to their conversation. Mark rose reluctantly. His visit had been all too brief, and it might be years before he saw the girl again. "Well, Eleanor, this Is au revolr," he said. "Perhaps for years." She looked at him in sudden alarm. "You are not coming back before you leave for the West, Uncle Mark?" she asked. e.

Eleanor was grown up and domiciled permanently in Colonel Howard's town house, and her letters had grown more infrequent and perfunctory, until their arrival became a quarterly affair instead of a monthly event, and not always that, either. And by and by the feeling came over Mark that If ever he were to see her again there would remain no common, link between them. From doubting Is future he had come to doubt himself. He doubted whether the desert life had not blunted him, blunted his finer Instincts, and made him unfit for social life certainly rendered him unfit for the guardianship of a young girl. But that he had relinquished to Colonel Howard grudgingly but uncompromisingly. Never in any of his letters did he put forward the shadow of his former claim. . Then, swiftly, and unexpectedly, chance turned and beckoned him. It camein the form of a letter from Colonel Howard, the first In two years. Howard had, in the past, repeatedly tried to Induce Mark to take advantage of opportunities that he had put before him, but Mark had refused stubbornly, until the Major had given him up in disgust Howard- - did not know, and Mark did not himself understand, the underlying idea in his own mind, the sense of subdued rancor against the man who had robbed him of Eleanor, coupled with the sense of sacrifice, that he might withdraw all his claims on the child. Now, however, Howard made one more attempt. "I want you to think this proposition over as quickly as possible," he wrote, "not for my sake or yours, but because your duty is to take the job. With war with Germany In plain view to the initiated, there are great things doing In Washington, and I've been offered my old post at the mobilization department, which has been enlarged beyond all knowledge. Your work In the West Is better known than you think, Wallace, and we want you here. Wire if you can, and come by the first train. This is official, so don't wait for divisional notification, which may take days." The letter reached Mark in one of his periods of helpless despondency. Impulsively he wired back, accepting, regretted as soon as the message had been dispatched, but packed his suitcase, turned over the command to the senior lieutenant, and took the train for Washington. As he went East the years seemed 0 fall from him like a dream. It was a frozen labyrinth In which he seemed to have been wandering; he seemed to come to himself with a consciousness of years wasted, but of years of action ahead. Coionel Howard gazed curiously at him as he rose from his desk in the war office and grasped his hands. "I should never have known you, Wallace," he said. What he was thinking was, "Good, Lord, how the years have eaten Into him !" "Don't think that your work has been unrecognized," he said, after a few minutes of desultory chatting. "It has been, and I know that recognition is coming to you in the fullest meas ure. You are to work under m here; it's a big scheme that we are preparing, my boy, and only Kellerraan and I, and yourself, will be acquainted with all the details, outside of the departmental head. You remember Keller-man?- " Mark nodded, trying to piece together the pictures of the past. "We are working out the mobilization plans for the first contingent, after it reaches France," Howard continued. "It's a bigger scheme than anything we knew in the past. You'll act as my. subordinate and have an intimate knowledge of the details a sor$ of understudy, in fact, but with a good deal of initiative as well. And if war comes, as it is sure to come, we'll be sent over on the first transport, to prepare things for the troops. Ah, here's Wallace, newly arrived to take over his duties." Mark saw not the slightest change in Kellerman since the days of the Cuban war. Kellerman was just as florid as ever, just as burly, with the same rather sinister way of glancing; his black hair was unthinned and untouched with gray. He had borne the years much better than Mark. If Kellerman reciprocated Mark's feelings, he showed no sign of it in hi? cordial handgrip. "We were glad to get you..

'Tve been looking forward to you ever since I got your letter telling me that "Dear Uncle Mark!" she exclaimed, n r I Mil fLMIf the-tim- Mark received her amends with amusement, and they sat down side by side upon the sofa, and were soon deep in conversation. Mark learned all about her school and her friends. She was very happy there and would regret not going back at the end of the holidays. However, Major and Mrs. Howard had only placed her there for a few months while they went on a visit to the West "1 always felt that you are really my guardian, eve if you did give me up to Major Howard,' said Eleanor. "But I have only lent you," said Mark. "I couldn't very well take care of you when I was sent to Texas. And it has always been understood that you belong to me I mean, that I am your guardian, Eleanor." "I know," she said. "And you write me such splendid letters, with such good advice in them." "Which you don't follow." "Indeed I do," said the girl, eagerly. "Only sometimes it Is just a little out of date, Uncle Mark." "In what particular?" inquired Mark, beginning to feel a little like a prig In the presence of this young person. It is so easy to assume the task of adviser from a distance, but difficult to retain the role face to face. "Well, when you wrote me last year to remember not to be peit and forward, like modern children, Uncle Mark. Pertness comes at seven or eight. One isn't pert at twelve at least, not In the way you meant They call It then." "I suppose I didn't realize how big you were getting," said Mark penitently. "But you can't think how glad I am to see you, anyway." "It's a shame sticking you for years out In that horrible desert," said the girl. "I wish. Uncle Mark, you hadn't staved in the army after the war." "Why, my dear?" "Because then you could have gone into business in New York, like Captain Murray and Captain Crawford." Tve been thinking about as much myself, Eleanor. But I guess the army got hold of me." "But they haven't treated you rightly, Uncle Mark. They haven't promoted you for years, and they have jumped all sorts of officers over your head. Major Howard was saying so only before he left for Alaska. But, of course, he's out of favor, and he wouldn't have any influence, anyway. It's years since he "was ln.the army." "I suppose Pm a back number, my dear. Some of us have to be.

It was evident, however, that he had been prowling outside the tent which held ' Wallace and the child. "Halt!" shouted the major and the sentry together, and, as the man dropped into the grass, the rifle and revolver rang out simultaneously. The seiiUj, cheating to the guard, came running up.

He stretched out his finger anSS pointed toward the big safe hotweerrx the windows. "Any one of some two hundred papers there, Mark, would give a: Trainable clue," he said.

Mark went home. He was resolved, nl though he had not told the CoIonL, not to become his guest at lease nofct unless he found that he could takr up his life again where he had dropped'iV years before. And then but what was the use of speculating? He-- went home to his hotel. He was surprised to find how as5-h- e seemed to fit into his environments when he donned his clothes and went downto room of the Congressional. Almost the first face he saw was that oC a man of his class ; within a few minutes Mark Wallace was seated at th dinner table with a merry party of old friends and new acquaintances. And: the years had slipped away from him On the next morning, when he tookc up his duties, it was with the- - sense-thhe was no longer a stranger. Washington was ready to extend her welcome to him. At the Army club,, to which he was posted by Colonel Howard, he found himself, much, to hl& surprise, often the center of a- respectful audience, eager to hear of the workr of the army In the forlorn outposts- o the West. He discovered, too; with surprise, that he was by no means as unknown as he had imagined himself, to be. Then there were invitations that had3 to be accepted, receptions and dinners--- : yet through it all Mark waited for day when the house In Massachusetts circle was to be opened, displaying the princess of his imagination the little child of the hillside,. th schoolgirl, grown into the image ofbto dreams.

In a Louisville morning paper I a report of a certain read resolution said to have been passed by the Western Baptist Association. The title of the paper's report is "Vote as You Pray." All Baptists should vote as they pray. Just now the burden of our prayer should be that the world may bo made safe for democracy. Lloyd George, premier of Great Britain, as you know, the most distinguished Uaptist in the world, wrote 3Jr. Cole- "taan. president of the Northern Bap tist Convention: "Tell the Baptist brotherhood' that we are fighting for Baptist principles." Baptist principles are democratic principles. Democratic principles are in this country in the hands of the Democratic party. A Democratic President Is the mouthpiece of that party. His word will close the war and determine matters after the war. Behind him every lover of democratic principles should stand to- State. day. W. W. LANDRTOI.

National prohibition is as dead an issue as slavery or free silver. The one great issue is the winning of tho war and the settlement of the momentous questions arising after the war. Those questions must be settled by the party that always sustains the President. I believe our brother Gatliffe voted as he prayed when he voted to nominate Gov. Stanley for Senator. X believe Senator Frost spoke as he prayed when he Introduced Gov. Stanley along with Senator Beckham. I believe Hon. H. V. McChesney votes as he prays when he sup&orts Gov. Stanley for Senator.

Sly attention has been called to a statement in tho Louisville press that all six preachers Hn our town were opposed to the election o Stanley as Senator. The author of that pronouncement "had "never consulted me. I am not a Democrat in politics, and am not now interested one h .in the partisan phases of this campaign. But my sober judgment of the issues involved compel mo t6 favor the election of Mr. Stanley in preference to Mr. Bruner. Certain Baptist Associations In Western" Kentucky have seen fit in the exercises of their Inalienable right to urge our people to vote against Mr.. Stanley, but to that advice I cannot consent The Prohibition question Is a negligible matter in this campaign. That issue has reached, such a stage that no matter which man is elected, his vote will fall on the right Bide. Mr. Stanley's personal habits past or present do not determine on which side his vote will be cast. When comes to a vote, good sense and goo.d politics will put Stanley on the prohibition side. But, wpro his vote known to be against nation-wid- e prohibition, I should still emphatically favor his election. The support of the President in the prosecution of this war is also a secondary matter. Both Mr. Bruner and Mr. Stanley can be depended upon to fight this war through to a finish. In the present fever-heof American patriotism, it would not be good senso or good politics for a Senator not todo so. Were the patriotic prosecution pf this war the Issue between these two men, Z. would not turn m? hand over for the difference be'twenthem. The Issue in this campaign Is greater and more vital lhan either of the things named.

Thinkers and Idealists to whom this era of justice has been a pleasant dream, and who have been somewhat skeptical of all politicians and their promises (even of Wilson at the outset) are now confident that they havo as a, President a man whose thought moves on as ofty a pitch as theirs, and who also has the political acument to translate those ideals into legislation, OUR CONFIDENCE IS IN WOODROW WILSON. Let me quote from a recent magazine issue: "Progressive ciUzens of whatever party havo adopted President Wilson as thelr'leader." The crucial matter in tliis campaign is not what Stanley or Bruner will do while tho war Issm, hut what they will do when the war Is ended. Either man will fight the war through to a finish it would bo his finish if he did not. But the probabilities are that one man would follow the leadership of hi'? party chieftain aud go WHERE WOODROW WILSON IS GOING, while the other man would line up with one of the two sections of the Republican party. It f on that "probability" that I FAVOR WHOLE HEART-EDLTHE ELECTION OP STANLEY AS OUR SENATOR. Wilson has tho ideas and the ideals; he needs now the chance to put them into law. I am f rr Riving Jiim tho MAN HE WANTS so lhat full responsibility can be thrust onji&n for any failure, if there is failure. To my mind these vast?and matters of social justice, of economic right, liberty demand with compelling voice that every man who loves his fellow shall vote" for Stanley as a Wilson man. g Sincerely, LESLIE L.
