RIGHT AND WRONG.
A Conflict of Authority Easily 8ettled
by Speaker Rood.
By many observers Reed Is now con
sidered to have been the greatest man
in congress at bis time. Such Is the
opinion of James L. Slayden of Texas,
who relates the following:
"It was when Reed was speaker and
Bailey was minority leader," said the
Texas congressman, "After one of the
parliamentary battle and on one of
the few occasions that it happened.
Reed bad been unquestionably wrong
In his ruling, and Bailey bad him In a
tight place. Reed, In one of those clev
er little speeches from the chair for
which he was famous, told the house
that tbe speaker was but the servant
of the house and not Its master (which
was not true In any particular when
Reed was speaker, for be ruled the
house as no other man has before or
since), and wound up by saying that
everything was within the power of
the house; that If his ruling was wrong
It was in the power ef the bouse to re
verse him by an appeal. One of bis
lieutenants, taking the cue, made tbe
appeal. ' The Republican mnjorlty
promptly sustained the speaker, as
Reed knew It would.
"A few minutes afterward Fleming
of Georgia, a very conscientious man,
a strict and able parliamentarian, and
myself happened to be at the speaker's
" 'Mr. Speaker.' said Fleming, 1 think
you were wrong In that ruling, and I
have something here that I should like
to read to you to prove my assertion.'
" 'Read It, said the speaker In a tone
"Fleming read the paragraph, which
showed conclusively that he was right
and Reed was wrong.
" 'What book Is that?' abruptly asked
".'A book on parliamentary law, by
Thomas B. Reed.' replied Fleming.
'"The book's wrong.' sententlously
remarked Reed." Arthur W. Dunn In

Governor Yates attended an inaugu
ration In Washington with his staff.
They packed their uniforms, but con
cluded to ship no horses, relying on the
stables of the capital.
While waiting to get In line an order

tervals with a message and was inva
riably accompanied by Louis Halle.
After a while Yates said to Halle:
"Colonel. It Isn't necessary for you
to accompany tbe orderly on his er

Cy Clark used to keep a hotel up

the boat, Indicating temporary posses

were out but one, and he wanted to go

trying to straighten out Into pucks a

The Half Fool
By M. QUAD
Copyright, 1911, by Associated Lit
One day when Abner Gray appeared
In the village of Medina for tbe first
time the first citizen he met sized him
up for a half fool. He appeared to be
a young man of about twenty-four and
was 6tout and lusty. About all that he
had to say was that he was looking
for work, and he found it at the livery
stable. He was given work nt $10 a
month, which the stableman bad been
paying double that to have done, but
he had said to Abner:
"You see, you may run across a bur
led treasure, and If you do It's all
He worked for the liveryman for two
months, and then, having found ' no
treasure, he decided to quit his Job.
There was a ruBh to secure his serv
ices. He was a good worker, and he
could be had at half price. He put in
a month at the village tavern, and as
the treasure still eluded him he en
gaged himself to Deacon Spinney.
The deacon had a talk with Abner.
He was' not going to deceive the man
in the least.
"Abner," he said, in bis slow and
honest way, "I have got ten acres In
"I want to hire you to attend to
"Do you think the British buried any
gold in that field?" was asked.
"Uml 1 can't say. Folks are saying
that they buried gold somewhere
around here. It might have been In
my cornfield, and it might not If you
want 40 cents a day and board till that
corn is shelled you can go ahead."
But I must be looking for buried
treasure while I work."
"And I'll allow you to do that"
"And If I find a box of gold?"
"It will be all yours that Is, half
of It shall be yours."
"But I want It all. Mr. Jones, tho
carpenter, wants me to go to work for
him. . He says a carpenter often finds
burled treasure, and he always keeps
It all." '
"Well, I can afford to be as liberal
as Mr. Jones. Go to work, Abner, and
moke the dirt fly."
The village was still keeping track
of the half fool. There was a gen
eral grin when It was known that he
had gone to work for Deacon Spinney,
and he was accosted on all sides with:
"Hoe away, Abner. You'll find that
box of gold before snow files."
How deep do you suppose they
burled the box?" Abner would ask In
"About two feet. lou see. General
Washington was hot on their trail and
shooting them In the back, and they
wouldn't have time to dig more than
"And how much gold would there be
In the box?"
"At least $20,000 and maybe double
that. The British were mighty mean
about some things, but when they
burled their gold they heaped up the
"All right. I'll be looking for that
box every day."
Abner had been working In that
cornfield for ten days and doing two
men's work In one when Deacon Spin
ney found his conscience troubling
him. He therefore walked down to
the field to say:
Abner. I think I ought to tell you
that I don't believe the British ever
burled any gold hereabout. I can't
find In history that there were ever
any British soldiers as far west as
"So you are going back on your
word?" asked the hired man.
"Well, n-n-no, but I .want you to un
derstand that I don't believe there is
any treasure here. ' It'a 40 cents a
But I'm to have all the treasure I
"Then It's all right V
"But I'd like to have you tell people
that I don't believe there is any treas
Abner kept this promise. When ask
ed about his wages he would reply:
"It's 40 cents a day and board and
lodgings and all the treasure I find."
There are people yet in Medina who
will tell you that on tbe afternoon of
tbe seventeenth day of corn hoeing
Abner Taylor was seen Jumping up
and down and running about and
swinging bis arms. Those who saw
him from a distance did not go near
him, thinking he had been attacked by
bumblebees. No Inhabitant of the vil
lage saw him drop from his window
that night and bead for the cornfield
on tbe run nor return four hours lat
er. It was the same next night and
on the morning after Abner said to tbe
"1 have found the treasure and am
"What, what!" exclaimed the dea
con. "You say you have found some
thing?" "Yes, a box of gold."
"In my cornfield?"
"Half a bushel or bo. I couldn't lift
"And where is it? Abner, I think
we must divide up that money between
But Abner took to his heels, and
Medina saw him no more. They found
the empty box, and they almost wept
as they figured on tbe amount it bad
held, but tbe half fool bad fooled tbe
wisest and was far away.
