Brother Charlies palatial home in Cm cinnati he determined to go out among the people Apparently however there is grave fear among the Republican leaders that their candjdate will not be gjadly re

As the dull gray dawn was driving the darkness over the Western hills Tuesday morning Mjj and Mrs Tnomas Prather who four miles from town on the Otter plce Lancaster pike heard the faint dr es of an infant They arose from bed and listened and realized that the infant was nearby They opened the frpnt door and were dumbfounded to nda large cradle containing a baby boy and beside it a large bundle of clothing elegantly wrapped up An investigation ensued and a note was discovered in the cradle bearing the following inscription William Jennings Bryan take good care of him and you will never regret it This infant appears to be about a month old and is a beautiful hi1dMr and Mrs Prather are delighted with their little visitor and say they would not take anything for him He wore fine clothes and the bundle contained enough elegant clothing to last him until he gets out of short dresses Mr and Mrs Prather are unable to account for the stranger and have no recollection of hearing any noise about the place during the night a fact indicating that whoever placed the infant at the door did it in an epctremely quiet manner The supposition is that the infant had been placed on the doorstep early in the nigh and growing tired of being left outside began to cry He is a robust looking chap and the best of care is being accorded him WIlY Why did the Republican party m National

Washington Couiriy Tobacco Warehouse Come pdny to Open Breaks at Their Plant 17Below Springfield Lr Monday afternoon a mass meeting of the citizens of the town and county was held in the Court House to decide what disposition should be made of the tobacco plant below town belonging to to the Washington County Warehouse Company Aljr a previous meeting of the Stockholders of the Warehouse Company a committee consisting of T S Mayes Geo T Mayes W A Clem ents J F Epperson J C McElroy McIChordber had been appointed by Chairman 1 H Thurman to make suggestions and devise plans for utilizing the plant to the best interests of the farmers ot this county This committee considered the matter from every standpoint and made the following suggestions wnich were clearly outlined by Judge Thur man That instead of the warehouse to outside parties who wished to operate a loose leaf market that the Warehouse mpany itself should start and operate such a market the direc tors of the Company to have general supervision of the running of the mar ket and they in turn to employ an ex perienced man to conduct it for them The plan as laid out was to conduct this as any other loose leaf market save that if a farmer should feel that he was not being offered enough for his tobacco he could reject the bid and qtill have no penalty in the way of a reje4iow fes attached tohjsfatIutOs- elL j If he sells a reasonable fee will be charged for selling and if he wishes to store and wait for at better market he can do so for a reasonable storage fee The plan is to use one of the houses for the marketid to have the other in operation to prize redry and store tobaqco for any who wish to ship or store their tobacco A fixed rate of prices will Ibe agreed upon for this and will be published in the neac future The intention ot the promoters of this enterprise is to open the breaks with the beginning of the sales Season and to run tas long as there is any to tObac1co IMPORTANF NOTICE To The Citizens of Springfield And Patrons of The Water And Electric Light Co Because of the terrible drouth that has prevailed for several months the watersupply in the reservoir is dimm ishing very rapidly and if the drouth continues much longer and unless every citizen economises in the use of water we may exhaust our water supply which we all know would be a public calamity Under the existing water contracts the right to sprinkle will cease on Oc tober 1st After that date no one will be allowed to use sprinkling for any purpose We hope to have the cooperation of every citizenof the town to assist us in preserving our water supply If they do not it will be only a short time be fore this town will be in the condition of many others in the State which are without water an J bring about a public calamity SPRINGFIELDI WATER AND ELECTRIC LIGHT Co By H B MCELROY Supt probably be the only loose leaf market in this part of the State An enterprise of this kind should ap peal to all the farmers The different tobacco buyers will have their agents here who will compete with each other in the purchase of tobacco thereby inj- urings a fair market price for the to bacco and further guaranteeing that na favoritism can be shown by the agent in the purchase made If the grower does not wish to sell he does not have 9and it costs him nothing to reject t the bids made for his tobacco whereas if shipped and put on the breaks and reclaimed the fees are rather onerous The loose leaf market is a fair mar ketoThe tobacco can be seen and a true estimate of its worth formnd There is no nesting of tobacco and no reclamation The buyer and seller both know what is on the market The buy er lnows what he is buying and tHev producer does not haye to sell if the price does not suit him To make it plain again this market- si for everyone equity men and noDi equity men pooler and dumper The redrymg plant will be in operA tion under the management of a corn petent nan Aside from keeping tobacco in better condition the redrying process adds naturally to the value of J the product So that if one does not desire to sell on the breaks he can Havev his tobacco redried prized and storedt

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 30 1908 1a r e 3 TADYERTISINtIr I d J A SERIES OF TEN TALKS ON ADVERTISING written ky Seymour Eaton of Philadelphia No 9 iI =p 1Theman who succeeds must fill his job so full fthathe bulges out a little at the top where people see him The successful store must do the same t thing only in a different way The goods must be on hand i the prices bust be 1right the service must be commendable the trading must be square the kind of square that has four equal sides and four right angles Every successful store has its trademark whether the merchant knows it or not Its advertising and its service have created a public sentiment in its favor which neither reverses nor fire nor time can obliter ate Nine times out of ten this trademark is the stores biggest asset Much of the ordinary store advertising is aj hand to mouth sort of business an effort to make tomor rows sales equal to todays or yesterdays s and this is just as true of the department store as of the small er shop The advertisement appears in the morning and the merchant figures out the net results in the evening It is true that the bargain advertisement of today is of little if any use next week It is for gotten in twentyfour hours but if the storemakes a feature of genuine bargains then each bargain sale T helps to advertise the bargain e rtment 1 The 4rsuch a way as to as well as to emphasize the bargains of the day t Dont go at it as if you were advertising Ian auction sale As I said a the outset your store is seed in the soil the advertising is the rain and jthe sunshine Inexperienced advertisers dig up the seed every evening to see if it is growing or pull up the young plant by the roots because it didnt bear fruit or flowers the first we ek It is safe to say that not more than onethird of the people are looking for bargains the other two thirds are looking for quality and style Thevery fact that the goods are offered at bargain prices leaves the impression that there is something wrong with the quality or that the style is a sejason behind Good advertising should enable a merchant to sell 20 coats 4at 25 instead of 25 reair r 12 50 in other words itshould create confidence rather than doubt As in stocks and bonds the securities quoted above par are always more desirable in the thought of the investing public than are those quoted at a discount v Advertising is a tremendous force which in action contradicts all mechanical laws The circumference and speed and working power increase while the motor remains the same t t I Make your advertising continuous Thus is the first great secret of success Copy and medium and circulation are all subordinate to keeping everlastingly at it H- utLru4I Copyright 1008 bj Tribune Company Chicago 4 rttJfIo

stalled carriage aptl mounted to the box beside tile liveried coachman As tonishment kept the latter silent for a moment then when he was about to speak the gentleman stopped him James he said in a low voice you know me- Certainly Mr Townsend You alsp know Unit 3ma friend of your mistress Now I wish you to relinquish the reins to me Get off thc and disappear in the throng Come to my office tomorrow and you will receive five years wages There was little hesitancy in ac ing such a tempting offer Hehad often seen the gentlemn at his mis tress house Doubtless he meditated some harmless prank Turning over the reins James descended from the box and was lost in the crowd Now there had been for some time a desperate love game between Mrs Tovnsentl and Miss Annette Van De veer the occupant of the carriage The lacjy would encourage her lover fora brief season when she would suddenly treat him with the most studied indifference This blowing hot und cokUou the heart alternately sets the blood coursing wildly and makes a man do very reckless things But Frank Townsend was as much of V genius at the game of love as1 Paul Morphy was at the gameof chess He Bladeup his mind to a

National Committee has been behind the forgery of the Cleveland reputed letter it is necessary to state that Mr Oulahan 1t who has charge of the press work of the committee has sent put a card with each and every letter mailed from the committees headquarters contain ing the purported last words of Grover Cleveland favoring the election of Taft On the front side Of the card an nouncement is made that Mr Cleveland had agreed td write three articles and that the first one has already been pub lished by the New York Times Atten tion is called to the fact that on the reverse side of the card are to be found two paragraphs from the article as pablished by that journalistic boome- for the RooseveltTaft combination One relates to Talfs excellence as a Federal Judge and the other points out that with Hearst and his party in the field to contest with Bryan for Demo cratic votes the Republican party is certain though with a considerably les sened strength to move to a safe vic tory etc In the lower lefthand corner of the card is this Copyrighted 1908 by the New York Times Company This is about as disreputable a piece of business as was ever attempted in a political campaign Now that the Times has to admit that the article was a fraud and a fake it is believed that noi t decent man will be misled by any such contemptible tricks 00 STEALEY Read This If you want a home and come to see

the day whereon the fa mous or Infamous Borough Street railway bill in its theLtIEverypaper in the city devoted col umns to the situation Everywhere it Was known that the bQY mayor was fighting with all his might the bill he f ViOfl already vetoed Equally well 8oJt understood that Horrigan was wasI ing the battle of his whole career behalf of the measure If he could but Induce his solid thirteen aldermen to stand firm and could maintain his hold on Roberts for the fourteenth allI would be plain sailing and the bill would pass by a twothirds vote in spite of the mayors veto More than the mere bill amlhis price for it were included in Born gans reasons for his present activity He recognized that his prestige as boss was at stakethat in case of failure his hold on the organization would be considerably weakened perhaps almost so much shaken as to permit Phelan to fulfill his once absurd threat to tear him down from his eminence For the whole organization was viewing with breathless interest the duel between Horrigan and the yputhfui mayor the boss had made In such circles a beaten man commands scant respect S S The board of aldermen were in ses sion In the city hall Off the ante chamber of the great room where they met was a small snugly furnished apartment first of a series of similar rooms that stretched away with con necting doors to the far end of the main corridor This place with the room adjoining had once been fhes comptrollers office Of late however that official had changed his quarters t and the room nearest the antechamber I had been appropriated by Horrigan himself as a of anofficjal snug gery where he could sit at ease and transact business at close quarters whenever the organizations secret in terests demanded his presence at the city hall Here his whereabouts known only to his Intimate and personal lIenten ants the boss was wont to sit at ease like some fat rubicund spider In the center of a web of intrigue and issue his orders or plans of campaignjrSome of these were carried by word of moutl through the anteroom into the alder manic chamber Others the transmit ted by means of a telephone that stood 9 ready on th center table before which his great easy chair was always placed Around this table as the board of al dermen were about to convene on the fatefUK Friday of the BOrOUgh bills I final consideration sat three men S WaIniTlght Gibbs and Horrigan The j former in spite of his habitual steady coolness was plainly uneasy Gibbs made no effort to deny his anxiety His eyes were bloodshot his manner abstracted and his nerves evidently strung to breaking point Horrigan alone of the trio had abated not one Jot of the colossal calm mid brutal power that were part and parcel of the mans mighty character When will our bill conic up do youc suppose asked Gibbs breaking a brief silence In half an hour or so probably answered Horrigan glancing at his watch T thought it was better for Mis to get hpre ahead of time Half an hour fumed Gibbs and jc neither Ellis nor Roberts here yet Suppose they dont get here on time They will grunted Horrigan plac Idly Do you thInk It Is possible either of them has come yet went on Gibbs WIth Ji glance at the antechamber door uN o How do you know Perhaps I Williams would have told me He I knows where Im tobe found j VfYopre sure Ellis and Roberts will i how up1 Yes v i wsoon i cIn good time But suppose they dont instated Gibbs nervously What then Why if they dont then they wont What do you suppose snapped Hor rigan Whats the matter with you anyhow Are you looking for a muse

off it Noth ig like agood smoke to steady your rorves If The antechariiber door opened and Williams hurried in I got EllisV he reported Hes here und with significant emphasis hell vote right Good assented Horrigan 9 thought hed cotne to time Now for Roberts and the jthlngs done The gallery in there is jammed reported Williams jerking his head too ward the aldermanic chamber nev er saw such a imob in the place be fore v Thats what comes of all this newspaper puIilicltygrowled Horrigan If it wasnt for the papers the people d never make any trouble for us But they read the news and then they get silly Ideas about their rights and a lot of them come here to see they dont get swindled Lord If the papers would only suspend publication for one month Id guarantee to put the whole state in my vest pocket Theyre al ways butting In to spoil the organiza tions honest profits How are the ingI what me seem tqbe for the Borough bill to waitlnI If they raise any row rush tioh through to lear the galleries ordered Horrigaiu Nothing shoijt of the police could clear away that big crowd Then well have the police In to help But argued Williams that would mean a riot and a lot of people would get hurt All the newspapers tom r row would Ty Never mind that Go ahead ahd do as youre told At the first sign of disapproval from the galleries have the motion passed and turn the police loose Understand All right acquiesced Williams du blously and withdrew Wainwright opeueiThis mouth to pro test but Horrigan was already busy at the telephone Hello he called I want 900 F captainIbesend him to thephone Tell him Mr Horrigan Hello captain after an other pause Yes its HorrIgan At city hall In the aldermanIc chamber theres a mob and were likely to need thern police to quiet em Yes No not diet them you

it comes to thqt anil I guessItwlll Pick out the right sort to send Yes Of course Ill back up anything they do Sure Rush ems Goodby But begab Wainwrlglit as HorI rigan hungup the receiver The boss cut him short Ill let that gallery crowd see it ainj safe to interfere with my w rk But protested WainwrIght sure ly it will not be necessary to To break heads It probably will Why not Id rather u diplomatic tactics Piplomacvs a game I never took the trouble to learn But those people youre about to antagonize control votes Yes The people may control the votes but we count them See the difference But doesnt tile law permit the pub lie to attend these meetings Only so long as they behave them selves If a few of em get clubbed they wont be so ready next time to butt In where they arent wanted They The tinkle of the telephone bell cut short the boss spirited remarks Horriganunsungthe receiver Hello be hailed Whos Oh Roberts eh 7 ts It Roberts cried Gibbs excitedly No snarled Borrigan in ponderous sarcasm Its tile czar of Russia tele phoning to borrow a nickel I called him Roberts just to flatter him Goon Roberts Whats that Yes this Is Mr Horrigan VWiint to see me do you What for No there Isnt he went on rangrily after a moments listening You nn J settled all that Come and do yoiir share of he Yes I tell you Its up to you to make good Another pause during which Gibbs and Wain w Ight glanced at each othqi4 In suspens Then the boss continued In a louder voiceover the wire Well come to my rOOm In the city nall then If youve got to see me But theres no need for it Its ail settled and theres nothing more to be said Fll be hero Dont keep me waiting- I WhaCs that No I wont come to you Youll come to me and youll some on the double quick Jump now If you doritNo thats alL Hurry up Wouldnt It be wiser suggested Gibbs to humor the man by going to him as he suggests Then No It wouldnt retorted as be kept the t le hone If Id20ne I on the principle of humoring folks Id still be working at eighteen per selling ferry tickets Take my tip friend Never go to a man Make him come to you Thats Business And it gives you a 90 per cent better chance with hm Now then pulling a

usually given over to dry ofli cial business inid its musty walls must almost have experienced a distinct shock inbout this time as Dallas Wain wright entered from the corridor behind She was accompanied by Perry and by Phelan who passing through the corridor toward the aldermanic chamber had collided with the brother land sister at the committee room door Heres a good sight for sore eyes Miss Wainwright the alderman was saying with his best air But is it fair to ask what brings such a bunch of sunshine into an old political shell like this Id as soon think of seeing Horrigan at mass as to find you here 1 want to attend the aldermens meeting exclaimed Dallas I have a special reason So I made Perry bring me But at the door they told us the gallery was so crowded that we cpuldnt

I became engaged to IBm the night of the administration ball I didnt want to tell you yet because I knew you dont like him Im Im Youre happy Certainly I am she retorted de fiantly So happy that I That

to help you out of this measly mixup Wont you There is nothing any one can do she murmured sadly I have chosen my course and Cheese It whispered Perry In hurried admonition Here comes Bennett and Phelants with him The young mayor came in talking to the alderman as he came This rooms disengaged he was saying Ill write it here and give It tooh I beg your pardon he broke off recognizing Dallas and Perry I didnt know rYe got two good seats for you announced Phelan Right where you can see an bear the whole shootin match AnS 1 guess before the ineetlus over its liable to get as interestin as a

certain unconscious stiffness I fear I was too taken aback by your announcement the other evening to remember to congratulate you but please believe me when I say1 wish you every happiness in the new life iyou have chosen Thank you very much faltered Dallas There was an awkward pause then she said You came in here to write some thing Im afraid we are detaining you You must be busy with your fight against the Borough bill You are quite determined to continue It to the end To the bitter end he answered miserjably Even though that end can N nothing but bitterness for me set anguish in his face moved IThe more than she dared confess to herelf I am sorry she said softly Itisthe course I have cbosenhe answered with a shrug and if it leads to eternal darkness instead of the sunlight I expected I must follow none the less lit That is sheer obstinacy she cried against her own hearts pas sionate plea You have laid out a plan to ruin Mr GIbbs to deprive Perry and uie of my own fortune to enrich

that you are wrong in your judgment of what I am doing J hope you will understand some day It will be too late to change anything then buta 1yesAndcan ever know Goodby He left the room abruptly and Dal stared after him her brain a whirl lIas conflicting thoughts Theres a man In ten million miss Phelan breaking In on herd reverie an from the rooks of that bran new dinky threek spark on your finger guess youre wise to the fact I am engaged to Mr Gibbs replied Dallas coldly What th4 gasped Phelan heck ing himself just in time Im sure withillfor frieu Gibbs is going tp nave something so heavy fall on his bunk roll by the time were through with this Borough bill that hell be ablfe to use his wad for a book mark without criukliu any of the leaves Why hell Come Perry interrupted Dallas Shall we go to the meeting now I Confused she turned to the door leading into nor iguns room instead of that opening on the corridpr and found herself face to face wfjtb her uncle the boss and Gibbs I beg your pardon she began surprised I didnt kuo y Dallas exclaimed Gibbs and Waln wrIght in the same breath Horrigan scowled at the interruption as all three men rose to their fet What brings yOu to a place like this asked Valnwtlg it in displeas tire Perry and I InuMca ing her brother who had followed her Into the room are going to at end the meet lug of the board of aide uieu But protested her u icle disapprovingly It is hardly the sort of My fortune and Perrys anti that of the man I am ro marry are all bound up in the Borough bill she answered fearlessly I have a rijjht to be presS ent when that bills fate Is decided Good nerve applauded Horrigan Youre a thoroughbred If there were more women like you Mr Horrigan reported Williams hurrying in from an antechamber the police have ome and All right answeredhe boss Give the sergeant his order II hardly like tIe rresponsibility muttered Williams and But youll take It Im backing you By the way get seats for Miss Walnwrlght and her brother Get them close to the anteroom door so if theres a row she can come back here If there are no vacant spats there clear a couple of people out and make place for But we have seats protested Dal las as Williams spod on his errand Alderman Phelan Alderman Phelan will have trouble finding a seat In this city when Im done with him snarled Horrigan Better take the seats I offer Miss Wainwright Theyre safer But protested Walnwrlght Ult theres to be any danger she mustnt be there I cant have v 4t will be on hatid to help her If mi there Is Gibbs answered him Hm grunted Horrigan in somewhat uncomplimentary doubt I will too spokE Up Perry Horrigan nodddd approval Youll be all right then said he And now You spoke of the police beIngin the aldermanic chamber said Dallas What for To check any trouble the gallery may make answered Horrigan This man Bennetts stirred the people up- with a lot of his anarchistic reform ideas till theyre crazy Some ones liable to get a broken skull and then Bennett will have himself to thank Maybe when the police have hammered a little sense into folks beads with their nightsticks the victims will begin to understand just what sort of a man Alwyn Bennett is Remember now Gibbs and you too young Wainwright if theres any sign of ja row bring Miss Wainwright back here at once All right agreed Perry a little rue fiji at the prospect of missing a free fight Lets go in there now Ive never been to an aldermens meeting before but ran up against a car strike riot once so I guess Im on to most of tlie subtle rules of elegance that govern such shows Come on people if youre fcoming- Ypur nixe Is a thoroughbred repeated HoTiran with rare approba tion as the aiitcroom door closed be hind Dallas and her two escorts So shes to marry Gibbs is she Im sorry for them both Why asked Vain wright sharply Because it w lit take her a year to find out that hes a yellow cur And when she does shell either kick him out or lead him around on a chain Now the fellow a girl of that sort ought to have married is Bennett Hes an obstinate fool but lies a man I thought you said once he was stuck on her He was He still is And she took Gibbs instead cried Horrigan a world of incredulity In his rough voice Women are a queer lot Whyd she shake Bennett if it is a fair question I let her see Gibbs was a heroic martyr said VainwrIght with quiet significance and that Bennett was Oh I see1chuckled Horrigan Still there might be something made out of Bennetts love for her even yet What do you mean Im not quite sure Ill have to think it over- Roberts has come exclaimed Wil Hams entering from the corridor Hes asking for you Shall I bring him in here Yes replied Horrigan By the way he added to Wainwright as Wil hams departed Ill have to ask you to clear out for a few minutes Ive got to see Roberts alone Now for the tussle thatll decide the whole fight CHAPTER XV lS entered with Rob WILLIA tow The latter wore trdubled look and nervousness had vlsibtYdeepened so much so that he had not even noted Phelans appear ance In the corridor as he passed into Horrigans private room Good evening alderman said Hor rigan civilly Good evening sir answered Rob erts palpably ill at ease 9 understand theres a full meeting today Even Ellis came back from the south to be here Youre the only man missing couldnt get here fsee Thats all W 7 neednt wait Roberts and I want a little talk before he goes in Now then went on the boss with a complete change of manner as Williams left the room whats the matter with you II cant Cant what Speak out man Dont stand there and mumble at me I cant vote for the Borough franchise bifi Cant trey roared Horrigan Why not- Becat because faltered Rob erts then with a rush of hysterical emotion that blotted out his fear he cpied lHave you heard what that man Ben nett has done He organized a voters committee in my yard and sent them to ask me at my own house what I was going todo about that bill They had been stirred up by Bennett till they looked on me as a crook and on the bill as a personal robbery They told me If I voted for it theyd know I was a dirty thief and grafter and that theyd kick me out of the ward Well well rumbled Horrigan soothingly as though trying to calm a fractious drunkard What dp you care When theyve forgotten all about the bill youll still have the dough wont you Folks wont ask Howd he get it Ml theyll care to know is Has he got It That Isnt all Roberts blundered on scarcely heeding the interruption Bennetts next step was to organize a committee of voters wives and they came to see my wife this morning when I was out and toJdhet theyd heard I was going to sell myself and vote for a dishonest bill My wife my wife thinks Im the squarest noblest man on earth Oh you neednt snerI Her trust meanseverything to me She told thQ women I wouldnt stoop to any deed that wasnt honest and they answered Our husbands be Hove Mr Roberts is a crook If he Is really honest hell vote against that bill as he did before Then on my way home this noon I met my little boy He was crying I asked him what the matter was He said that some boys had told him I was a graft er I tell youbis voice rising almost to 4 scream UB netts made my life a hell Im no crook Im honest and t1Or Sure youre honest Horrigan exclaimed as though to cross child Honest as the day Thats why youre voting for our bill Because the crooked clauses have been cut out of It and In its present form its a benefit to the Cjltyr That isnt why I promised to vote for it contradicted Roberts with a despairing dash of courage It was because Ibecause- Never mind why then but just go ahead and dolt gotjstormed Horri gnu You cant welch on me at this stage of the game Those Sturtevant Trust company notes of yours were sent to you and = uAndI wont take them declared paperdownthem back What do I want of them argued Horrlg n craftily They belong to you They dont I wont keep them Youll have tol keep you to your promise What promise asked a voice be hind them iBennett hastily summoned by Phe Ian had entered the rOOm unobserved by either of the excited men What promise he asked again A promise to What are you doing here bellow ed Horrigan in fury You called me down once for coming into your pri vate office without knocking What dyou mean by coming into mine Yours queried Alwyn I had an Idea It was the citys The timfr is past when the words Porrigan and city meant the same thingWell Roberts how are you going to vote I want to believe you honest and Why whats all this his eye falling on the forgotten notes on the table Nothing of yours shouted Horn gan making a futile furious grab for the documents which Alwyp as picking up Drop them Drop thOm I say or youll t Why should I 7 asked Benutt calm ly his quick eye taking in the nature of the slips of paper even as his alert brain grasped In full the meaning of the transaction in which theyfigured4 fjThey y retorted Horrigan and if you dare read them Ive already read them Roberts he added In a kinder voice turning to the shaking alderman these were to have been jour bribe werent they for voting for the Borough bill His quietly compelling tone and glance forced from Roberts a frightened Yes before Horrigan could Interfere a thought so Be quiet Horrigan he commanded as the infuriated boss sought to speak through his choking wrath This Is between Roberts and me Nbwi then I returned the notes to him plead ed Roberts In panic Honestly ldidt Just before you came In I could have kept them and he couldnt have pre vented me even if I voted against the bill Bat Im square and You are square affirmed Bennett gripping the aldermans cold moist hand in friendly reassurance I knew all along you were honest at heart Horrigan wanted to bribe you and you wouldnt be bribed NowI want you to go into the council room and vote asIyour manhood tells you to Roberts comforted yet still trem hUng obeyed not venturing a second look at Hprrigari Now toy friend said Bennett pleasantly when he and the boss were alone together what are you going to do about it It seems tp me your gamer is up I want those notes panted HorrI gan finding coherent speech with aa effort through his red mist of rage Why Theyre not yours They arent nri fe over to you and there Isv no cancellation stamp on them They are the property of the Sturtevant Trust company and Ill send them bTick there tomorrowafter IVe had them photographed Youll give them to me fibotrted Horrigan his mighty body vibrating with fury or youll never leave this room alive t Youre a fool ridrrigan remarked Bennett with

both men And thenstanding motionless waged the bat tie of wills both men standing mO- tionless tense vibrant with dynamic force Slowly little by4 little Horrigan eyes dropped He moved awkwardly to one side from his position In front of the door and Bennett without so much as a backward look passed out The boss like a man in a daze sank heavily Into a chair and gazed straight ahead of him his usually red fact gray and pasty But he was not to enjoy even the scant boon of solitude From the ante room Gibbs strolled in Theyre going over sonic unimportant preliminary business remarked the

whole thing couldnt 1 Itd be his word against mine and shed never bell ye I could do such a thing II might try Yes growled Horrigan you might A cur thats lost all his nerve can try things that even an ordinary crook would balk at But Gibbs did not hear He had returned to the corridor in search ofl Bennett The man scarcely deserved the opprobrium heaped on him by Ilor riganu A brilliant daring operator he was unknown to himself a rank cow and at heart For the first time in his life the cowardice had cropped out and totltp Gibbs justice it had driven him temporarily insane In his norImal senses he would eves have r ed to the plan he was now so eager to carry out it was a putrid bit of jet Sam at which a finrncially i drowning man did not scruple to clutch HorriJvn followed him from

writer in Modern Bookbinding Open the volume rio lently or carelessly in any one place and you will likely break the back and cause a start in the leaves Never force the back of the book A connoisseur many years ago an excellent customer of mine who thought he knew perfectly how to handle books came into my office when I had an expensive binding just brought from the bindery ready to be sent home He before my eyes took hold of the volume and tightly holding the leaves in each hand instead of allow ing them free play violently opened it In the center and exclaimed How beautifully your bindings

fill It with water and put woolen strips two and three Inches wide In It and1keepair blowing through the wet sacks keeps everything almost as cool as if It were In a refrigerator and the but ter and

water Place the garment between dry cloths and squeeze preferably between a wring er Then shake well to get rid of all superfluous moisture and Iron at once through tissue paper with a warm iron How

invaluable to those who write says Womans Life Do not be too sparing of screws They cost very little Begin by drilling a hole with n gimlet then Insert the screw working It well In The great disadvantage of all amateur work is that Is not pone with sufficient care ItI KEEPING BRILLIANTS BRIGHT TheirIowners if it is to be kept in good condition More particularly does this apply to the imitation gems which are so much worn nowadays When new such stones often defy detection but when they get soiled their character is sometimes only too apparent Rhinestones tire in great vogue and once they lose their luster nothing will restore it The woman who knows however can prevent this from occurring One of the best ways of preserving the brilliancy Is to prepare a warm water bath taking care that the liquid Is perfectly free from any gritty sedi m nt before immersing the articles of Jewelry Allow the jewelry to remain in the water two minutes then remove and scrub with a stiff brush Rinse off the soap by plunging the pieces Into a bowl of clean water and then place them In a box filled with Jewelers sawdust and allow them to remain there for half an hour or until all the water has been absorbed When dry whisk off any fine pieces of wood which may adhere by means ot- a soft brush and rub with n soft cloth This method is only possible when the stones are set in silver platinum or gold When not entirety surrounded by some metal the only way to clean them Is by softly brushing with a camels hairbrush Many women destroy rhlnestones In their efforts to clean them simply because they do not understand how these stones are set Most imitation stones are simply pieces of glass and are really softer and easier to scratch than the ordinary windowpanes Their brilliancy is obtained by the tips of lead or the aluminium in which they are set Hence it will be realized that scrub bing and liquids even water itself will have a tendency to loosen these tips and allow dust and moisture to find entrance between the stone and tbe lead foil Rhinestones of the better quality which are made of a composition can be cleaned with soap and water just the same as diamonds and may then be dried in jewelers hot sawdust How to Clean Sewing Machines Sewing machines need to be given personal attention If the machine works hard or squeaks then you may be sure it needs a thorough cleaning Remove th needle and shuttle and give every jblnt and bearing in the ma chine a generous bath of gasoline You must pot have a lamp or fire burning anywhere near this explosive fluid With the needl and shuttle still out turn the wheels briskly tcf allow the gasoline to penetrate every part of the machine and to loosen and clean out all old oil and grime After the wheels have beeii turned for a minute or so wipe away all visible oil grease and dirt Cotton rags are the best for wiping away the oil for they absorb the grease readily It Is necessary that every drop of oil be removed Now oil the parts with pure machine oil and run the machine again for a few minutes before reinserting the needle and shuttle You will find after this treatment that your machine Is in perfect temper and a delight to work with so smoothly and easily will It run How to Remove Callous Spots Callous spots are most frequently found on the soles of the feet They are due to pressure and friction and often are decidedly painful and annoy- Ing As much of them as is possible should be rubbed away In the daily bAh and what remains can often be removed without any pain whatever by rubbing the spot with a piece of toilet pumice while the callous Is in a softened condition from the bath An other method of removing a callous is to bind the spot tIp overnight with a cloth saturated v iia crude 1ioieumn nfter the spot has been bathed and rub bed und scraped Tnls will often soften the callous Strapping the toot With an adhesive plaster will often bring relief The

Is an excellent cure for headache Saturate a cloth with witch hazel and apply It to the part of the head where the pain is most felt and renew It as soon as the cloth becomes dry Headache that is
