fMr." Walter Bedlght.
' "Mayor of Osslan:
"Dear Sir: The levity of your de
meanor. at yesterday's trial and the
6stenslbly nonchalant attitude jou
$hose to take of the sentence inflict
ed, leads mo to believe that you aro
considering this very serious matter
altogether too lightly. Under ordinary
circumstances a handsome trlfler
might ride into a womanjs camp liko
Loehlnvar, boldly grasp .a' pretty girl
In his. arms and kiss herwithout pay
ing, -a. more severe penalty "thin the
scorn of the camp and a few surfaco
scratches.' And even you, evidently a
gentleman as well as a politician.
Height have escaped with a fitting re
buke had you been luckier. Unen
cumbered by "baggage and feeling un
bound by our court to remain, you
could have drifted away into the eve
ning shadows and laughed at our ef
forts to restrain ou.
' "But, Mr. Bedlght," as a .candidate
for representative at the coining elec
tion, for which you are evidently re
couping your vital forces in this tran
quil spot, you will scarcely desert
while we have in our possession a
document so incriminating as that
found by us yesterday in your wake
through the dogwood swamp.
"The document itself Is evidence
enough, if given publicity, to lose you
the votes of almost every woman la
the district. Such treachery as you
have In mind the drafting of a bill
against -woman's suffrage will not be
countenanced by tho fair voters ot
this land, once the facts are in their
"I trust you realize tho enormity ol
your crime and the hold we have on
you. Should you be unwise enough
to violate the sentence of this court,
the news ot your duplicity will be
sent to the women's clubs of jour dis
trict, to be followed by unimpeach
able evidence in your own handwrit
ingthe bill itself I am satisfied that
your better Judgment will prevail and
that you will serve your sentence as
becomes a gentleman and a candidate.
This being Sunday, you will bo al
lowed your liberty to go and come as
you please and fortify your mind
against tho ordeal you aro about to
experience. On Monday morning you
will inaugurate your sentence by be
ginning with Mae Andrews, whoso
namo appears first on the alphabetical
list. Mae is a stunning blonde with
hair like spun flax and checks like
tho down ot an Alberta peach. She is
city broke and a high stepper, has a
"Guilty, I Say, and Proud of It"
dozen Beau Brummels infatuated and
loves to see enamored men turn som
ersaults In the service of the queenly
sex. You will do what aba tells yoc
even to Jumping through a hoop,
should she demand it,

"JACK" VIKING, Judge "
Walter Bedlght, mayor and candi
date for the legislature, frowned.
Plainly, here was a predicament. Tho
humor of the situation had fled. The
piqued attitude of tho "Judge" toward
him was plain. It was more than this,
it was "catty." She ran after him and

The fury of a woman osculated li

was the goat!
Deep in a quandary of ways and

ly berating the fatal day ot woman
suffrage, wandered into the cool, m
It was midsummer and the forest

man might lose bis troubles in the
rippling of the rills and receive dl

Bedlght penetrated far into the
heart ot the wood, where dryads
romp along the sunbeaned way
through interstices in the trees, where
mother brown thrushes peep from
sheltered nests and frisking squirrels
chatter ot the hlcUory nuts a-rlpening
upon tho scraggly trees.
And then ho saw her!
Like Psyche, she stooped beside a
quiet pool, above her tho spreading
branches of a water elm. Besido her
on the brink the harebell grew and
to her ear there came from down be
low the rhythmical cadence ot a
brooklet's song, the same song that.
In crescendo or diminuendo. It had
tung for centuries, the ever chanted,
perpetual song of the brook!
He stole softly forward on tip-toe.
Absorbed in her mood, sbo gave no
heed. The rich outline ot her figure
thrilled blm and oa her golden hair
the sheen ot the morning radiated like
i halo on the head of a Titian mas
terpiece. Step by step he drew near,
siutlously. Little by little be crept
rorward until he stood "with bis hand

for the boat landing, the girl in the

the dock and smiled confidently intc

Bedlght pushed off. The east was a
riot ot effulgence and the lapping

their way to meet the boat Rowing
steadily, tho mayor studied the face
of the girl opposite the face of a pa
trician, softened by clear blue, kindly
eyes and beautified by amqrous red
lips. Unconsciously Bedlght caught
himself mentally reading:
"With thy red Ilp. redder still.

He drew the boat to a shady spot
along tbe beach and rigged a pole

"But what do you -want to catch?"
he insisted. ,
He took up an angleworm and Im
paled it on the hook.' while the girl
watched him, fascinated.
"I I never could do that. Ugh!
But men are wretches!"
For answer he threw the line lntc
the water' and handed her the rod.

you totd me to wait!"
"A fish and a man should be landed
at exactly the right moment," he ad
Tiled, seriously, avoiding her eyes. "If
trifled with too long, cither is apt to
get away with the er. bait!"
"Thank you," she replied coldly. "1
know how to do it now."
In a trice she had a flopping beauty
in the boat.
He retailed her hook and, picking
up his rod, sent a Dowagiac spinning
through the-ajr. r It fellijuit without
a bed of moss. There followed' a
splash, a neat turn ot the wrist, a

smiled. Tbe fish, a black bass ot
three pounds, came Into view ot the
boat. Tho flsherlady squealed with
delight but the fish, seeing bis tor
mentors, made a desperate break for
J liberty. The woman, gripping tbe rod
firmly, resisted the attack, whereat
