him that he was the man to rlm,- anew .
the Independence boll, und gave l.lm 11
greot ovation when hU turn came to
reply, to the Rood natured fun that the
club hud had throughout tho dinner nt
the expense-of the lemocratlc party.
All of President Wilson's Cabinet ex
cept Secretary of the Treasury Mc
Adoo were ot the tnbles. For many of
them this was also their first experi
ence at a. Gridiron feast, und they
entered as heartily Into tho merrymak

The fun began almost before the first
course was served. The diners found
themselves Knzlint nt tho interior of a

It was called. Senator Hoke Smith,
who looked as If he were ready to rescuo
anything from u four masted schooner
to a drowning tariff schedule, enters
" Tls a bitter nlftht," said Hoke, rub
bine his frostbitten ears.
"Whee'unh-UKh," moaned the wind
and a bushel or so of paper snow fell
"Ah. 'tis n happy day." added Hoke,
"for we tlmple tisher folk In Port

Democrntlc Unlit has been dark, nut
where Is the light now?"

For an answer the property man sol

More wind and another bushel of

followed close upon the heels of Speaker
Clark, and with him came further evi
dences of the storm without. The trio
gazed upon the turmoil.
"G () P. liner Tnft la but a hulk on
Protection Shonl." said one.
"The mizzentop of tho brig Progres

rocks." exclaimed McAdoo, peering Into
the outer darkness
"VeB. and the swift clipper I'ncle Joe
lies whitening on the sands." added
"All are wrecks, lost for lack of light."
observed Hoke Smith.
"Vou mean for lack of cash," com
mented the Hon Champ.
Just then Hoke Smith, taking another
good look at the storm, nllowed that it
was "a black wast for black deeds."
McAdoo believed, however, that the
wreckers had tied before "us honest
coast guards." Hut Lifeguard McAdoo
had spoken ton noon, for In the next mo-
ment the frightful discovery was made
that "Penroce Hmoot, king or tn wreck
ers, - had been sighted In the oiling
As the force of this discovery dawned
on the Democrats within the lighthouse
they were cheered by news of the arrival
of "Oscar I'nderwood" to protect the
onnt The Democrats wero saddened,
however, by the added Information that
the protection was to be "purely inci
dental." But Oscar the protector, had not ar
rived alone. About the same time ap
peared "Old Bill Hrynn" und his daugh
ter "Tariff." the fairest maid that ever
nursed an Infant Industry She was
the heroine und Oscar's sweetheart.
The Democrats In tho lighthouse
teemed to be In damrer of forgottlng
that It was a bitter night when a mes
senger bov arrived accompanied with
another large gob of wind ami snow
The telegram that he brought was
signed "Wnodrow Wilson " It told of
the necebsltv of keeping the light
burning, because the, good ship "T. Jef.

currency reform, trust binders and with
the Seven Sisters on board.

But hark, on tho wings of a particu

"then once aboard the lugger tho girl Is

the villain added n moment later, np.
pealing to Miss Tariff herself.

blush nnd a hanging of her head that
he was "a poor, unprotected girl."
"Unhand me. villain! Help' Help'"
Whereupon Oscar, the hero, dashed
In, absolutely forgetting the announce
ment that It was a bitter cold night, and
rescued Miss Tariff,
There wero many other eventr Ir. tho

The guests had hardly finished laugh
ing nt this when one of tho members of
the club started up a song, a parody on
"Row, How, How," and having par

that office seekers got at the White

to Cabinet officers.

mulo themselves understood cither by
their superior olllcers or by many nf

entirely without any orgnnlntlon "
