fortune in the of playwriting He is John Allen Murray one of the bright gatherers of The Times Mr Murray is a county boy a son of the Judge John Allen Murray of Cloverport who was a prominent mem ber of the Kentucky State bar One of his uncles Col David R Murray is a wellknown lawyer politician of the State Another uncle the late Hon EH Murray was at one time territorial Governor of Utah Another uncle Mr Logan C Murray Is a prominent financier of this city The Murrays are re leted to the Crittendens otherwise highly connected- So by Inheritance training young John Allen Murray hasufull license as the expression goes to try for prizes even in that difficult but luring field of dramatic writing The title of Mr Murrays play is The Power of Politics It has reach edthe dress rehearsal stage and is to have its premiere at Bardstown on Tuesday night ebruary 2 The story of how the play came to be written san interesting one Johnson Musselman the young Lou isville thespian who has been making good on the vaudeville stage sought Mr Murray and asked him how soon he could write a play Mr Murray modestly I replied that he thought he could turn the trick in six months But I must have It inside of two weeks said Mr Musselman Mr Murray said he would consider the matter That night he worked out the scheme of the play and the next day The Power of Politics was knocked out on the typewriter certainly quick work for a fouract play But it seems the project was too big for Mr Musselman and Mr Murray is now being backed in the production by Cincinnati capital A capable cast has been selected to present the play which is to take a swing around the Kentucky circuit for a tryout Eventually Mr Murray hopes to land it in the fierce light of Broadway New York It is certainly a big undertaking for a young man and does high credit to his ambition and enterprise Even though it may not realize all the fond hopes of the young dramatist it is a start in a direction which may lead to something later 000 Story Of The Play The play has to do with John Winston who just home from college has been elected to the office of Commonwealths Attorney by the local political boss who is trying

infuriated at the young attorney Winstons friend Dick Wathen points out to him that it would be foolish to remain and take the consequences and urgeshim to fly to Tangier until matters quiet down Winston at first refuses to go but when he llearns it is the only way to save the situation he leaves the office in which he is practically a prisoner by the fire escape just as the mob breaks into

asked It I the solitude of the plains was not burdensome and oppressive to a man who was traveling along some of the vast expanses of the west where for hundreds of miles there was no ono to see but himself his horses m boundless level of pralrlo grass the blue sky above with its sun by day and its stars by night At first the question seemed strange but I soon understood how a man who has lived all his life In dally touch with Broad way might go melancholy mad In a single day in a region where ho could see and hear absolutely nothing but the wonderful panorama of nature and Its voices There was a multitude of things around him to arouse interest which to the plainsman meant safety or danger life or death but which would mean to such a man indeed no more than so many blades of grass This silent excitement of the solitary rIde over the broad prairie where the city man would sec nothing but dull monotony was something more cxclt Ingly fierce than anything I had seer In a town and I had seen Wall street crazed I have watched street riots 1 have witnessed royal pageants and 1 have seen men lynched These things stir the blood but they all seem pale to what I have felt when out alone on a scoutConsequently the scout on duty was compelled to invent ruses of his own to assist him in emergency And When some extremely dangerous mis slon had to be undertaken the scow often puzzled the commander by rs fusing aid In the shape of a squad or any chosen number of soldiers to accompany him But actually it was the part of discretion to do so as golnr alone or with one or two chosen comrades whom you knew to be true blue was a precaution that favored your own safety as every scout naturallv picked tile very best mounts and rode one and had what is called a lead horse well trained to follow ant stand by him in every emergency Hi had only himself to look out for and with a good lend horse in a race fur life had a fresh remount Therefore 1 always kept myself well provided with well trained steeds who became wonderfully proficient In scenting dan ger and even game The fact that your horses were unshod was another puzzle to a trailing Indian as a shod horse print gave him a clew to a white dans presence or the proximity of the military One of my ruses was to talco with me a bugler of the Fifth cavalry named Kershaw who devel oped a capacity for comradeship in such adventures Kershaw after re tiring from the army became chief of police at Chester Pa near Phlladel phla and died there several years ago Generally I preferred like others go tag alone as then I had only myself to look out for I took Kershaw with me often as I knew the country was Infested with The bugle call threw them into cmfuslm large bands of Indians when it wa too dangerous to travel In daytime am your object could be best accomplish In the night Ills value as a striker can be best explained by the following incident On one occasion we slept dur lag the day In n well wooded box can yon near a little stream of water witI plenty of grass for the horses to brows on and at the same time we were hid den from view Toward evening when we thought it convenient to continue our scout Just as we were about t emerge from our hiding place a large band of Indians assembled down the canyon to camp for the night Mounted as they were it was useless for us to attempt flight so moving farther backward in the woods we remained concealed until they had settled down There was no way to get out except a dash through the Indian village Wit dared not stay till daylight as they might find our trail nnd they would have us corralled so we quietly wallet until they had settled down when wi mounted and sneaked toward the edge of the village where there was an avenue of escape Their faithful dogs ot course alarmed the camp so the best we could do was to make a dash out wheel and fire as quick as we could and Kershaw with his faithful bugli blew the charge Riding qulckl around the village we made another little firing at them nnd sounded thi bugle charge again A repetition ot this at another point andn bugli charge threw them into confusion stampeded their ponies prevented their quick mounting and while they went in one direction bold Kershaw und myself were riding in another Natu rally of course this gave the Indian something to think of in the nigh while we got to the post and informed Colonel Royal of the location and with Major Brown Captain Bache Lieuten ant Jack Hayes and a detachment of cavalry went on the trail which was followed for two days and the Indian were severely punished with but few casualties on our side Getting fresh meat for Fort Sheridan we were greatly annoyed at times on our buffalo hunt by being Jumped by the Indians who in those days wero generally out with the same object Many a hot skirmish or many a run for it was necessary Buffalo naturally were some distance from the fort and I thought of a trick by which I could give my red brothers a surprise In a run for It a few miles from the fort was a hogback that furnished n good defensive position and I had often noticed that it had a long deep bushy ravine It was in the nature almost of u natural fortification So I thought how I could get them to re peat their many attacks on me when 1 ran to this particular point from which I could signal for help to the fort with hasty grass fires and smoke that talked Buffaloes were at the time plentiful so I secured Kershaw and about fifteen good marksmen with provisions for the trip and start ed out before daylight for the hunt Hiding the soldiers in this ravine we proceeded on our journey and had not the wagons half filled before my striker Bill White announced Indians in the distance and a big band too said Bill Away we went for the hog back and It was llckety split with the Indians gaining on us every min ute We reached it threw our wagons into position packed our buffalo hams out for breastworks threw some straw about and gathered up some dead grass to make a signal The Indians seeing It knew that relief would come and they hadnt a mo ment to lose If they wanted our scalps On they came dashing around Myself and teamsters and five or six of us banging away at them they circled around and drew oil as they commonly did and at a distance of about seventyfive yards from the am bush As usual they bunched together listening to the wrangle of the chief Bang Bangl Bang And the old Winchesters began to talk from the ravine while Kershaw with his bugle blew the charge the Indians tumbling here there nnd everywhere out of their saddles the rest scattering with the speed of jack rabbits in all directions Assembling on the distant illls they realized that the jig was up particularly when they saw the avalry coming in the distance Somehow or other during the remainder of the season they never seemed to mo Pet tbo butcher wagon with the same ppetlfo And the fort alwaysl hats mesh meatircou- ntry 9 f A of such vast expanse un settled save for a few forts as places of refuge and succor so comparatively ow in number as to be as it were like pebbles on the seashore rendered the campaign in winter with the blizzard conditions not only hazardous and dangerous but even It successfully ombated attended by excruciating suf erlng This the old army officers and soldiers of the early campaigns will never forget the physical discomforts and mental worrying with climatic conditions far excelling those that defeated Napoleon in his winter cam talgn in the region about Moscow I relate two or three examples On mo occasion I was out with some of the Fifth cavalry under the command of Lieutenant Bache a descendant of Benjamin Franklin and a member of a well known Philadelphia family and by the way a magnificent young officer who in various campaigns showed a bravery and dash that one would not associate with his aristocratic bear- Ing and extreme gentility A blizzard rose Fortunately wo were near shelter in the shape of some bluffs and tattered wood When the blizzard vas over it was necessary for us to strike out on the path of duty The thermometer was away below zero and the wind cutting and sharp On coming back from tho lead to con rait with Lieutenant Bacne I passed by him to caution tho sergeants to lookout for thEM men from the cold and tiee that they did not become drowsy and on my return I found indications et droweiaMW eyea Itt tHonumbni8and I senrid him and appealed to him to pull him self together but ho was just in tin humor to resent it In consequence had tQ take the law into my own hands and shako him up in lively style first taking the precaution of slipping his revolver slid placing it out of his reach As he did not respoud to mv efforts on the horse I simply dismount ed pulled hint from the horse and used him In what one would think a rather rude and rough manner In fact I had to make a punch bag and football out of him murk to the astonish ment of some of the young troopers who canine up and were going to avenge my apparent discourtesy to their ofll cer though some of the older men ex plumped its necessity Eventually 11 go the lieutenant on his feet and while our horses were being taken care of an old sergeant nnd myself hustled him along on a little foot race until we got his blood In circulation and so over coming the danger we eventually ar rived safely at the fort On another occasion when out with General Eugene A Carr with whom I consulted and who by the way was one of the best posted and equipped Indian fighters and frontiersmen on the roster of the army we both con eluded that on account of the peculiar balmy condition of the weather a bUz- zard would be the next thing In order So wo resolved to strike camp early as we were then in a bleak country In the blinding blizzard and over fifty miles from wood and water This wood and water were in a lower country where there was only one gap which would furnish descent Into the valley and that had to be reached by careful attention to direc tion Starting early nnd getting the point of the wind we had not gone far be fore old Boreas began his revels Gen eral Carr of course gate orders to too commanding officers of companies In regard to preventing drowsiness of the men and to quirt them in case of any of them succumbing to the cold I shall long remember that trip for It was necessary for me to go by the wind and not flinch from it for in the blinding blizzard we would all soon be lost Time direction brought the wind against my left ear and as the storm soon became so blinding that even a black horse could not be seen ten feet from the picket ropes lariat lines were scattered along to guide the men who kept so close almost as to touch each horses tall But I dared not change my position for fear of losing the dl rection so for eight hours I held my left check and ear against the storm and of course suffered greatly from frostbite I dared not dismount as did many of the others General Carr himself walking nearly all the dis tance lending his horse I had stuffed my ear with a place of saddle blanket but notwithstanding that tho eardrum was frozen and 10ft time It gave me Intense pain and suffering and up to the present day it has quite affected my hearing on that side But by this pertinacity we reached tho gap and when Iliad wade the point success fully and the descent down into the canyon became assured there were never 1500 men who let out such yells nnd paeans of Joy On another occasion I had a very try ing experience when General PenroseH command had been sent to reconnoiter the surrounding country by General Sheridan and were known to have been somewhere In a blizzard Not hearing from them for several days we knew they were up against It but as all trails were covered and obliterated by the drifting snow it was a serious problem to find them General Carr of course consulted with me in the mat ter and he relates the incident in dc tall in Carrs Campaigns pf my sue cess Jn finding the men In this in stance knowing in what direction they had gone I had to travel fifteen miles to find a ridge that they would cross and that the storm would blow the snow away from and leave bare FoJ lowing this ridge for five miles or more I found the trail of their horses and wagons where they had crossed nnd by tho hoof tracks located the dl rection in which they had gone I suc ceeded in reaching them snowed in and in a terrible condition for every thing had been eaten up to such an extent that the horses and mules bad eaten tho manes and tails off each other Returning the next day repel was sent and the commands became reunited 4Y 7 t The Bank of Hardinsburg and Trust Company B P BEARD President 11l II BEARD Cashier IIPAUL COMPTON

EIGHT PAGES WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 3 1909 Herbert M Beard writes to the Kentucky Farmer the following The farmers of this county are wearing the smile that wont come off as all their tobacco has been sold and delivery is now being made The Burley bought from 12 to 19 per hundred pounds while the Red tobacco brought from 660 to 990 Tho present price of tobacco is high because the farmers are holding together and hope by another year to perfect plans so all may realize the benefits All tho farmers of this county want is Equity Give us a price so wo can make a reasonable profit and wo will be satisfied In addition to the price for tobacco we are getting 65 to 70 cent- per bushel for corn and 12 to 14 per ton for hay Wheat brings 1105 per bushel There is not a better market in the State than in this county for horses and mules The one drawback is the price of our land which is not half as high as it should be A number of cattle are being fed this winter Among the feeders are Lyddan Bros Irvington Den nis Sheeran Ilardmsburg and Beard Bros Hardinsburg There was never so much plowing done in full and winter months as this year and several farmers have now finished In the Farmers Homo Journal B S 0of Hardinsburg wrote in his letter about Breckinridgo county Ten years ago it was a difficult matter to sell a farm unless well improvedand favorably located and then uta very moderato price We have some as fine land as can bo found anywhere hore and with the improvement of roads and general farm conditions land will con tinue to incesaso in value The News is exceedingly glad to hear the farmers sing praises pf our county We have always insisted that Breckinridge is the garden spot of the world The hills and the hollows have over assured us of undiscovered treasures and we have believed as old Col Murray said When there is nothing on top there is something underneath Let the progressive spirit prevail let efforts for improvement be exercised and let everybody join in the chorus of laudation for Breckinridge MULES AT AUCTION This is a new feature in the selling of mules in this county Vic Robertson is always on to the best and top methods in handling and selling stock Ho is ihauguerating this plan to make it sure and con venient for farmers and stock men who want to buy stock buy it quickly and at the lowest prices This has long been the custom in the upper counties and Mr Robertson thinks it will be a good thing for this county It will too Suppose it is known that on every county court day there will be a lot of buyers and sellers of stock at Hardins burg Men will wait for that day and go then with their stockand their money to make an exchange Instead of riding over the county losing time they can wait for this sale day see and get what they want or sell what they have The news thinks this is a splendid move on the part of Mr Robertson and hopes ho will receive sufficient en couragement to have these sales at least once a month In the House last Monday Representative Boutell of Illinois by unamioiis consent spoke in high praise of the heroic part played by the wireless operator on the steamer Republic after her collision with the Florida saying that the name of John R Binns should bo immorta lized for having stuck to his post under trying conditions and sent messages which saved hundreds of lives And there are many who object to Representative Boutells sentiments in regard to Jack Binns Their reason is why thousands ofi heroes are unknown in the world today humanity is not willing to recognize them When a man gets to the top plenty of folks at the bottom stand ready to push the ladder down Lot Jack live as a hero had ho lost his life with the Republic the whole world would have called him a hero bold Sometimes death though is the only power that can kill jealousy and selfishness in mannot until those are gone can he cheerfully admit the heroic act of his brother With a half million or more money paid out in this county for tobacco there ought not to be any hard times especially among the farmers If they keep it down in their pockets and in their socks it willnot do them any good or any one else In the banks is the place for money They keep it moving and when money moves it moves other things Wo notice a farmer down in Hancock lost 250 by carrying it around It is never safe to carry money in your pockets especially when there are so many good banks No trouble with our banks They are all safe sound and conservative There are no dull spells for tmerchant who advertises When trade begins to lag he increases his space and makes bettor offers Good advertising will sell wool blankets in July straw hats in November and fall suits in February If you dont believe this try it in the News The News

making battle of right against wrong of honesty against cor ruption of simplicity and sin cerity against deceit bribery and Intrigue It is the story of today in this country It vitally con cerns everyman woman and child in the United States so far reaching is its influence The warfare is now going on the warfare ofhonest men against corrupt political machines The story tells the inside of the political maneuvers in Washington and of the workings of bsscys there and elsewhere how th shape men andwomen to their ends how their cunning intrigues extend into the very social life of the nations capital You will find inspiration in the career of the honest old southern planter elected to the United States sen reIportersecretary and political pilot Your heart will beat in sympathy with the love of the secretary and the senators youngest daughter You will read of the lobbyists and find that not all of them are men You will see how avarice causes a daughter to conspire against herfather You will hear the tote of a gripping national tragedy in the words of Peabody the boss of the senate But cause for laughter as well will not be found lacking in this truly manysided narrative CnAITBH 1- IllACTICAL POLITICS That bids him flout tho law he makes That bids him make the law he floutsKipling 7 N buoyant spirit the Hon Charles 1I Norton rode up the bridle path loading through the Langdou plan JL tattoo to the old antebellum home BUml which on a shaded knoll over 1011111 tho winding waters of the Pearl river No finer prospect way to be had In all Mississippi than greeted the eye from the wide southwest porch where on warm evenings the Luugdous and their frequent guests gathered to dine or to watch the golden splendor of the dying sun The Langdon family had long been a power In the south Its sons fought under Andrew Jackson at New Orleans under Zachary Taylor In the war with Mexico and In the civil war man of that name left their blood on tho fields of AntIetam Shlloh the Wilderness and Gettysburg Hut this family of fighting men of unselfish patriots had also marked Influence In the ways of peace as real patriots should Generations of Langdons had taken deepest pride In developing the hundreds of acres of cotton land whose thousands of four foot rows planted each April spread open the lion Charles Norton Jf 0 silvery lined bolls In July and August and the ripened cotton fiber pure white beneath the sun gave from a distance the picture of an expanse of driven snow The lion Charles Norton had reason tor feeling well pleased with the world as bo fastened his bay Virginia hunter to a convenient post and strode up the steps of tho mansion which was a characteristic survivor of the old south the south of gilded romance and of gripping tragedy Now In this second year of his first term as congressman and a promising member of the younger set of southern lawyers bo had just taken active part In securing the election of Colonel William II Langdon present head of the fami ly to the United States senate though the ultimate action of the legislature shad been really brought about by n lifelong friend of Colonel Langdon tho f senior senator from the state James Stevens who bad not hesitated to hat ter Norton and use him as a cats paw This use the lion Charles Norton seemed to consider an honor of largo propositions Not every first term congressman can hope for Intimacy with a senator Norton believed that his work for Langdon would win him the familys gratitude and thus further his ambition to marry Carolina tho planters oldest daughter whoso beau ty made her the recipient of many at tentionsA gleam shone In Nor tons eyes as they swept over the fertile acres of the plantation He thought of tho material Interest be might one day have In them If his suit for the hand of Carolina progressed fa vorably Suddenly his reverie was in terrupted by the voice of young Ran dolph Langdon a spirited lad In his early twenties who had just been made plantation manager by his father Well how Is the honorable today said Itandolph approaching from the doorway I didnt think a congressman could bo spared from Washing ton but rarely especially when the pa pers say the country needs such n lot of savingOh saving your country talk I goes all tight In the story books re plied Norton who exercised consid erable Influence over tho youth through a long- acqualntancesblp and by frequently taking him Into his confi dence but this country can take pretty good care of Itself In con gress we representatives put tho Job of saving It over on the sen ate and the sen ate hands back I the job to us So The senate hands whats every bach the job bodys business Isnt anybodys a fine scheme so long as we have a president who keeps his hands oft and doesnt But how about the speeches and the bills broke in Randolph I thoughtYes yes to be sure the congress man quickly added Nearly all of us Introduce these so called reform bills When theyre printed at government expense we send copies carried free by the postolflce department to our constituents and when we allow the bills to die in some committee we can always blame the committee But If theres a big light by our constituents over the bill we let it pass the house but arrange to kill it In the senate Then we do the same thing for the senators Like In every other business my boy continued Norton as he led the way into the house Its a case of you tickle me and Ill tickle you in politics And dont let any one fool you about the speeches either They are pretty things to mail to the voters but all the wise boys In Washington know they arent meant seriously Its all play acting and there are better actors in the senate than Henry Ir ving or Edwin Booth ever were- I dont Mink my father looks at things the way you do Charlie No Well maybe he doesnt now but he will later on when he takes his sent In the senate If he Isnt wise enough to play around with the rest of the senators be wont get any bills passed especially any bill carrying an appropriation or of any other particu lar Importance What ejaculated the planters son Do you mean to say that If father wont do what the other senators want him to do they will combine against him and destroy his useful ness make him powerless a failure The congressman smiled patroniz ingly on the youth Why of course they will Thats politics practical politics the only kind thats known In Washington You see But the leaders of the great par tics cried the young plantation man ager In amazement Why dont they prevent this- Because they Invented tho system and because political party differences dont amount to a whole lot much of the time in Washington The politi claus do most of their criticising of the other party away from Washing ton where the voters can bear them But when circumstances sometimes force a man to rise to assail the other side In congress he afterward apolo gizes In secret for his words Or sometimes he apologizes beforehand saying Ive got to hand out some hot shot to you fellows just to please a crowd of sovereign voters from my district who have come up to Washington to see me perform So of course Ive got to make a showing Dont mind what I say You know I dont mean It but the old fogies will go back home nnd tell their neighbors what a rip snortin reformer I be Is that tho way you represent your district Norton asked Planter Lang don who at this Juncture entered the room r r No no Mr Langdon I should sa senator now 1 suppose I was merel telling Randolph how some legislator conduct themselves The senator elect paused momentary ly gazing at the congressman who dark vlsogcd tall black haired broad shouldered and athletic was vlslblj uneasy at having his conversation with Randolph overheard by the fa therNo doubt it wont be all plain san Ing in Washington for an old fash toned man like me but I believe In the American people and the men they send to congress slowly spoke tin planter Theres Senator Stevens fot Instance He has always stood for the rights of the people Ive read nil his speeches Just why he brought about my election it is hard to tell for Ive been a planter all my life except when I fought under Beauregard 1 feel that he did It out of friendship and I simply cant say how much I appre elate the honor I am Indebted to you too congressman Tactfully disclaiming any credit for his work only Nortons congressional training in repression enabled him to refrain from smiling at Langdons In nocence ills belief in Stevens sinceri ty and his wonder over his election Stevens the keen cold and resource ful who forced his officeholders to yield him parts of their government salaries Stevens who marketed to railway companies his influence with tho department of justice Stevens who was a Republican in the commit tee room In Washington and a Demo crat on the platform in Mississippi Stevens who had consummated the deal with Martin Sanders boss of sev en counties to elect Langdon because of the planters trustfulness and simplicity of character which should make him easy to influence and to handle in the all Important matter of the gulf naval base project The entry of Carolina Langdon and her younger sister Hope Georgia gave Norton a welcome opportunity to shift the trend of convocation You ladles will have a gay time In Washington he began after directing n particularly enthusiastic greeting to Carolina You will be in great de wand at all the big affairs and I dont think you will ever want to come back to old Mississippi forty miles from a railroad with few chances to wear your New York gowns Carolina spoke quickly her face flushing at the thought of the new vista of life now opening Yes I have always longed to be a part of the real life of this world the life of constant action meeting new peo ple every day and prominent people Balls re ceptions teas theater parties afternoon drives plenty of money and plenty of gayety are what I want Im not a bit like Hope Georgia who thinks these ideas gIextravalanrJIm not a bit like not seen real life Qopn Georgia yet Carolina you must not think me only your little sister now I have seen life Havent I spent a week in JacksonThats enough proof You know all about life Im sure Miss Hope Georgia smilingly remarked Norton Later rising to Join Planter Langdon on the veranda where be had gone to smoke the congressman gazed Intent ly nt Carolina You will probably forget your old friends when you en ter the dizzy social race In Washing tonNo Charlie I couldnt forget you anyhow You will be there too I shall depend on you a great deal to take me about unless you ore too busy making speeches and fighting your opponents Again It was Nortons turn to be Inwardly amused at the political Ignorance of the Langdon family Speeches The first term congressman doesnt make speeches In Washington because no one cares what he thinks except the lobbyists whose business It Is to provide new members with a complete set of thoughts Neither does he have opponents ho Is not considered important enough by the veterans to be opposed Skillfully approaching tho subject which next to Carolina Langdon had been uppermost In his mind during his Visit Norton asked the senator elect on joining him If he did not believe that tho entire south would benefit if the plan to establish a nnval base on carriedithrougbiiI certainly I do and as I said during the senatorial fight the whole country as well will be the gainer responded Lnn don 1Dont you think the people who want Altacoola chosen as the site have the best arguments was the visitors next question the reply to which he anxiously awaited I Yes I do from what Ive already heard but I havent heard very muchI of what the folks who advocate othe sites have to say So until Ive heard all sides and made my own examina tion I couldnt give any one my final answer but Altacoola seems to bav the necessary qualifications Senator Stevens Is In favor of Alta coola eagerly suggested Norton Yes and thats a pretty good argu ment In Its favor responded Lang donNorton now excused himself plead lag an appointment with a client at a neighboring village Waving farewell to Carolina and Hopo Georgia who stood nt a window he rode away The old man Is sure to be all right ho muttered He leans toward Alta coola and believes in Stevens Hell lean some more until he falls over Into the trap Theres a fortune In sight within reach Langdon has faith 1In his friends Ho wont suspect a thing Still another thought occurred to tho Hon Charles Norton Stevens elect ed Lnngdon out of friendship he chuckled gleefully That will bo we worth telling In Washington CHAPTER IL THE WAUS OF PEACE TyQ BILL LANGDON was th term by which the new sena D tor from Mississippi had been affectionately known to his In timates for years He carried his 230 pounds with case bespeaking great muscular power In spite of his gray hairs Ills rugged courage unswerving honesty and ready belief in his friends won him a loyal following some of whom frequently repeated what was known as BUI Langdons Golden Rule There never was a man yet who didnt have some good In him but most folks dont know this because their own virtues pop up and blind em when they look at somebody else At the reunions of his old war comrades Langdou was always depended on to describe once again how the Third Mississippi charged at Craw fordsville and defeated the Eighth 1111 nois But the stirring events of the past had served to Increase the plant ers fondness for his home life and his children whose mother had died years before At times he regretted that his unexpected political duties would take him away from the old plantation even though the enthusiastic approval of Carolina nnd Hope Georgia proved con siderable compensation Although not sworn In as senator Colonel Langdons political duties were already pressing A few days after Congressman Nortons visit ho sat In his library conferring with several prominent citizens of his county re garding a plan to ask congress to ap propriate money to dredge a portion of tho channel of the Pearl river which would greatly aid a largo section of the state During the deliberations the name of Martin Sanders was announced by Jackson the colonels gravely decorous negro bodyguard who boasted that he wuz brung up by Cuncl Marse Langdon sub a flghtln Mississippi cunel suh sence long befo do wah and way befo dat suh Show Mr Sanders right In commanded Colonel Langdon Good day senator spoke Sanders the boss of seven counties as he en tered Glancing around the room ho continued bending toward the colo nel and muffling his now whispering voice with his hand I want to speak to you alone Im here on politics Thats all right but these gentle men here are my friends and constituents was the reply In no uncertain voice When I talk politics they have a perfect right to hear what I as their senator say Out with It Mr SandersAs was Introduced to the members of the conference ho grew red in tho face and stared at Langdon amazed At last he had discovered something new In politics Say he finally blurted when I talk business 1 Are you in politics as a business quickly spoke Colonel Langdon WhyIerno of course not the visitor stammered I am in politics Carolina Langdon had an austere love liness for my partys sake Just like everybody else and Sanders grinned sug gestlvely at his questioner Havo you anything further to say asked Langdon In a tone hinting that he would like to be rid of his callerJ Well since you are so very new in senators Is it poeelbfsir that yeti tare setae knowledge of actual hap talkras you have I want to know If 1 must feel shame feel disgrace sir to be a senator from Mississippi that himselfesir would choose to live In if ho came to earthSThere there senator dont take too seriously what I have said Sanders replied in reassuring tone having out lined his course of action I lost my head because you wouldnt promise mo something I needed that appointment for Hagley What I said about sons tors an such was all wild words nothln in em Why how could there be senator This query was a happy afterthought which Sanders craftily suggested In a designedly artless man ner Just what I thought and know ex claimed Langdon sharply It couldnt be It isnt possible Now you go sir and let it bo your greatest disgrace that you are not fit to ehter any gen tlemans house r Oh dont rub it in too hard senator You may need my help some day but youll have to deliver the goods before hand I said Gol Im goln but heres a Up Dont toefight to live Im a human beln an humans are pretty much the same all over the world all except youyoure only half natural The rest of you is reformerAfter departure the colonel sat nt his table his head resting In his hand the events of the day crowding his brain bewilderingly The iMttles of peace are worse than any Bet uregard ever led me Into he murnuvcd Fighting to conquer one self Is harder than turning the left flank of the Eighth Illinois Jn an en filading f1 re- But the new senator from Mississippi did not know that for him tho
