better not be repeated In my henrin'I"
William Shapiro, representative farm
er of the "north side," was proud of
his son Richard and religiously Jeal
ous of his honor.
"Well, neighbor," said Hanson, put
ting his foot on the hub of Shapiro's
wagon, "I'm only tetlin' ye what's be

"He simply said he was goln' down
to St Louis on business fer the firm

"Well," concluded Hanson, "sorry he
cant be here to rip 'em up the back
In that debate. Ye'll have to take
Dick's place, won't ye, neighbor?"
"Beckon I will," assented Shapiro,
with a complacent air "that Is, If we
can git 'em In a corner an' make 'em
debate at all I'm goln' over to the
south side today, an' I'm goln to
make 'em show their hand 'fore I git
back. Can't ye go 'long, Hanson, an'
back me up?"
"Can't today, Neighbor Shapiro, but
hope ye'll land 'em fer a debate, an'
I'U be on hand to yell fer our side,"
promised Hanson, looking after his
neighbor as the latter touched his
lead mare with the whip and started
"We'll give 'em the best we've got

In a half hour he arrived at the
Walkaruaa river, the stream which
flowed from west to east dividing
Walkarusa county into two warring
sections, a small but aggressive com
munity on the north side, but with
the bulk of the wealth and population
on the south side.
Farmer Shapiro stopped at the ap
proach to the ferry and pulled the cord
depending from the big bell suspended
from an overhanging treetop. But
the clangor of the bell, speeding across
the turgid stream, attracted no atten
tion on the other side. No ferryman
"Sleepln' off last night's drunk, tike's
not" the north side farmer muttered
to himself disgustedly.
Farmer Shapiro stood his tall form
up In his wagon and tugged nervously
at his gray brown beard as he gazed
across the river and then suddenly
gave the signal bell cord another sav
age pull. This finally brought Into
view the slouching figure of a man,
who leisurely shipped the anchor line,
started the little gasoline engine and
headed the ferryboat across the river.
Passing the south side creamery two
hours later, Shapiro met County Super
visors Wllklns and McHenry.
"How about that debate, gents?" he
queried. "Suppose ye got our chal
lenge. We're loaded fer bear an' Bouth

"Yes, we got the challenge," admit
ted Wllklns, "but we're any of good
speakers. Can't seem to find anybody
to take our side."
"Look here, Wllklns," said Shapiro
warmly, "if you fellers have got legit

voters are entitled to bear 'em. An'

"Keep cool, Shapiro," said Supervi

side want to build a bridge fer the
special benefit o' the north side no
body's going to prevent 'em isayln' so

of Dick's appearance, for which be
was very sorry, and that he himself
would have to represent the north
The north side farmer drove home
much elated. "The debate's a-comln'
off," he told Ilanson. "They're a-goin'
to git some travolln feller, thafs been
to the lcglBlater from Cherokee county
to speak fer 'em. But I ain't afraid
o him. He may be a glib talker an'
all that, but he hain't got the argy

regretted Hanson. "He'd make a meal
off that lcgislater feller."
"I ain't sure but Dtck '11 turn up yet
in time fer the exercises," said the
elder Shapiro hopefully, "but I'll be
loaded to the muzzle In case be don't"
The news of the proposed debate
spread quickly, and appearances point
ed to an enormous attendance. A
canvas covered grand stand lighted by
electricity was erected, benches pro
vided and all details arranged. It was
plain from the public interest in the
event that the fate of the bridge bonds
would be largely Influenced thereby.
Saturday night came, but Dick, like
one of Napoleon's generals on a cer
tain occasion, did not come. Some
thing had detained him, and the re
sponsibility of the coming debate was
upon his father. The ferryman was
kept busy that afternoon carrying
north aiders across the river. They
were taking no chances. They, the
whole population of them, went early
to occupy front' seats and shout for
Farmer Shapiro, not to appear un
friendly, met his opponent to be, a
smooth, professional looking man with
gray hair and beard, at his hotel, and
arm in arm they walked down to the
mass meeting when the hour arrived.
The resolution to be debated was,
"Resolved, That bonds In the amount
of $100,000 should be voted by Walka
rusa county for the building of a
bridge across the Walkarusa river at
the point known as Bannlng's cross
ing." William Shapiro as the affirmative
speaker made the opening address, his
allotted time being forty-five minutes.
He spoke with directness and force if
not with rhetorical polish, reciting the
facts that every north elder knew by
heart The "south" had the railroad,
the county seat the high school and
nearly everything else desirable, to
ward all of which the "north" had con
tributed in various ways, while the
"north" bad nothing. In asking for
the bridge they were merely asking
for what was their own by right
The speech was frequently interrupt
ed by applause, and at the close the
whole north .side contingent arose and
yelled In chorus for five minutes.
"The distinguished gentleman from
Cherokee will now address you," pom
pously announced the chairman, and
amid deep silence the smooth, gray
bearded stranger arose.
He spoke in a low voice and with
ease, but without enthusiasm. He
consumed twenty minutes of his time
in generalities before coming to the
matter at issue at all. He praised the
county, its soil. Its people, its schools.
He talked merely talked until an Im
patient south elder called out "Waal
how about the bridge bonds?"
But the Interruption only made the
matters worse for the south side, for
the first "point" the "gentleman from
Cherokee" made was that to build the
bridge would deprive "a worthy poor
man" the ferryman of his means of
This raised a howl of laughter from
the north aiders and disgusted the
south side politicians, for every real
dent of the county knew Hiram Ban
ning for a worthless drunkard.
In vain the chairman called for or
der and admonished the meeting to
give respectful attention to "the gen
tleman from Cherokee." But the
crowd from both north and south had
taken the measure of "the gentleman
from Cherokee," and, though the
north eiders were delighted, the whole
mass meeting voted him a aero quan
tity as a speaker. He tried to floun
der on for a few minutes, but Boon
sat down after occupying but thirty of
his forty-five minutes.
Shapiro then spoke during his clos
ing twenty minutes, and the occasion
became a north side demonstration
and a very biting south side frost
The distinguished statesman from
Cherokee did not come to the bat at
all for his cloning speech, and the
meeting adjourn wd, the north eiders
going home triumphant
The following Tuesday, true to his
promise, Pick Shapiro returned is time
to voto for the bonds, which carried
by a safe majority. And the next
morning, calling his father Into bis
room and opening a suit case, Dkrk
showed him a theatrical "makeup"
and said: "Father, I am the dlsttn
gufched gentleman from Cherokee.' I
did not make much of a speech for tlM
south Bide, but I let down the bars for
you and the north side.
