1 seemed to say, "I don't take myself

The friendly reporters'" exchanged
pleased glasees, and those for the op

other that Perriton was playing to
the grand stand for all he was worth.
, A tall, handsome woman, who "had
sat looking out at the crowd about
the train, smiled proudly up at him
as he resumed his seat beside her;
and the train sped on to the capital,
where the next day he would take
his place as Chief Executive.
A little eager-faced old woman
stood gazing after the train, her eyes
shining and her cheeks flushed with
"Oh, I like that great, 'big, fine
young man, Hebby!" she exclaimed
' ta- the girl? beside her. "He is the
first Governor I've ever set er?s upon,
and I wouldn't take anything for get

a pretty speech! Human nature will

roses.' I don't think one mite nor
grain the less bf him for that, but I

"Why.yes, I guess so, Miss Patty,"
iissented Hepzibah Hay, absently.
"You know my aunt planted the
first one of those bushes on the
prairie forty-five years ago, when we
were the only white people in the set
Hebby managed adroitly to get the
ell woman started toward the dry
f oods emporium, and heard the rest
cf that familiar story as they walked
slowly in that direction. She had
teen willing enqugh to crowd up for
one curious look at the Governor, but
ho and his speech and future career
- rarere all alike of minor importance
to'her, for Hebby had come to town
to buy her wedding finery, and har
thoughts were occupied with mental
t calculations of means and measures.
Miss Patty's presence was a neces
sity upon this expedition, for it was
her wiry little fingers that were to
fashion the new frocks, aud Hebby
. well knew that the sharp blue eyes
o? the little dressmaker were the ones
. to ' distinguish in a trice the bridal
grays ;that would "pink up" with
wear, the. blacks that would crock,
the goods that would pull- in the
seams, and fabrics that would fray
Hepzibah was most eminently prac
tical i and in view of certain ambitions

';- A troubled look that she did not
at all understand had clouded her
- lover's eyes when she refused that
little wedding trip that he had
planned, assuring him that it would
be better for them not to incur that
expenditure, especially as the wed
ding was to tak? place just at a crit
ical time of the poultry season, when
the young chickens and turkeys she
would be carrying to her new home
would be just at an age to need daily
? "Miss Patty surely makes me
tired," Hebby confided to RUfus, the
evening before the wedding. "You
know I've had to be at her house a
great leal since she has been mak
ing my dresses, and she hasn't been
- _ able to talk about a single thing ex
cept the Governor since she saw him
that day at Ru mb let on. She reads
every word the papers say about him,
and just let her get me helpless and
at her mercy while she fits me, and
she tells lt ali over to me."
"Well, he is a big man," said
Rufus. "If the cat doesn't jump the
wrong way in this veto business, he
is going to make the cleanest and best
Governor this State has had for years.
I don't blame Miss Patty! I wish
; I had been in Rumbleton, too, that
day, so I could have had a look at
. him. I had thought we'd go up to the
capital on our trip-" He hesitated
a moment, and then resumed, T

"A little," she admitted, guardedly,
and then her native candor compelled
her to add that she always, skipped
the parts that dealt with politics, as
they did not Interest her. .
/ "Well, lt is just this way," began
Rufus, and Hebby resigned herself
with a sigh to listen. "The Governor
ls right now in a tight place. He
made the campaign with a rush and
swing, and he is the farmers' idol,
and no mistake about that, but they
say the other side is trying hard to
get him tangled up.
"This Holt bill now has squeezed
through both Houses, in some way or
L- another, but he can veto it if he will,
j and he ought to. The people that

Is a ring up there at che capital-"
A yawn interrupted him, ? and
Hebby laughed and apologized.
"I believe you are as daft over him
as Miss Patty is. Rufus, " she said.
"Lot me tell you what an absurd
.thing Miss Patty is meaning to do.
This afternoon I ran up to her house
on an errand.^and I found her com
posing a letter Ho the Governor. She
read it over to rr.e, and bad me help
hei to get it into some sort of shape,
but I didn't dare correct her spelling.
She has written her good opinion of
him-, and sending her a box of hw red
Irish, roses, to show him that the
West could make as fine roses as
Florida, and she went over the same
old tale you have heard before of
those Irish roses being the first civil
ized flowers planted on the prairie.
She is going lo send the letter to-mor
row, and a bunch of roses by the
same mail in a shoe-box! The Gov
ernor will laugh at her poor little
letter, and he won't even look at her
flowers. Why, Rufus, I've seen the
kind of roses they have in the city,
great things as big as a-teacup, with
stems a yard long, and such colors!
By the side of them, Aunt Patty's
tight little red roses would look like
humble prairie blossoms indeed. I
told you what he said in his speech,
"Yes," replied Rufus, dubiously.
"If I were the Governor, I would not
care how big and line the city roses
were; I'd appreciate those from some
body that admired and thought kind
ly of me."
Hebby stretched up her strong
young arms above her head, and
"I don't know whether you'll ever
be Governor, Rufus, but I'll tell you
what you will be- inside of twenty
years, if you and I both live-you'll
be the richest man in this community.
Pa says so, and I know it is the
He made no immediate reply, and
again that * look came into his eyes
that she could not understand; but
presently he began speaking of per
sonal matters, and Hebby's face
kindled as he told her of a new poul
try-house he had that day begun from'
some plans she had once mentioned
to him. Their new house was already
finished and.furnished, and he was
living there, and in leisure moments
working hard to fit out the runs and
yards to Hebby's hart's desire.
When Hebby went to slsep that night
she was thinking happily of the new
life she was to enter with so much
energy, and now and then came an
occasional thought of Rufus' good
temper and gentleness. He was a
dear fellow, even if it was true, as her
father had said, that their worldly
success was going to depend on her
own shrewd management more than
upon -Ruf us* hard work.
The wedding was to take place at
ten o'clock, but although Hebby and
her family sat waiting and. ready,
the groom did pot appear at that
hour, nor at eleven, nor at twelve;
and then some one rode over to the
new house to investigate.
Hebby was the first to see the mes
senger come flying b~ck down the
road in a cloud of dust.
"Quick!" he shouted. "Some of
you go over to Rufus'-he is badly
hurt! I'll go on to town for the
He did not tarry for any explana
tions, and Hebby, anxious-eyed and
pale, was soon driving fast toward her
new home with her father. She hur
ried up into the house and through
its rooms, calling Rufus' name, then
through the back yard, and down
under the slope, where the poultry
runs extended to a little spring.
"Here, Hebby! " answered the voice
of Miss Patty Parker, and there, just
beside one of the new poultry-houses,
amid a litter of freshly cut tin, lay
Rufus, pale as death and with his
eyes closed. Miss Patty held his head
upen her knee, and with one hand
was holding the stick in a tourniquet.,
made of a corner of her best white
The blood on the edge of the tin
beneath his wrist told that in some
way he had severed' an artery, but
Hebby did not ask any questions.
One look at that still white face sent
her running to the little spring,
where she wet her handkerchief in
the cool water and bathed his face.
Her father went for a vessel and I
plenty of water, and in a little while
Rufus opened his eyes. Hebby smiled
and spoke quietly.
"Well, Hebby," said Miss Patty, ad
miringly, as the girl deftly removed
his head to her own knee and took
gentle hold of the tourniquet, "you
are a wonder! That's right, just he

Rufus'll be all right just as soon as
the doctor can bind up that wrist,
and the wedding can go right on.

Hebby was not given to "taking
on," but.her lips trembled, and the'
eyes that were bent * wn to her lov
er's were full of tears>?-a she sat and
heard how Miss Patty had stopped on
her way to the postofuce early.that
morning to bring Rufus a root ot ber
rose-bush, and had found him in a
faint beneath the new chicken-house,
with the blood spurting out of his
By and by the doctor came, and
Rufus was carried inside the house
and made comfortable; bute Hebby
ran back down the bill alone, and
looked about her.
Everywhere were evidences o? his
loving care for her-the new houses
and yards she had planned, the little
spring-house already begun, and lying
close to where he had lain was a little
rose-bush, all withered under the sun.
Off, where Miss Patty had dropped
It in her excitement, and forgotten it,
was a shoe-box wrapped in brown
paper and addressed to the Governor.
Hebby stooped and picked it up. but
instead of smiling at its absurdity,
she dropped some .tears upon it.
Hebby was not a crying girl, but some
thoughts and leelingB vero taking
f root m ?er heart that made it very
tender, and called for expression.
"Oh, don't be crying!" came the
hearty voice of the old" doctor, who
had followed her. "Rufus ls all right*
and the preacher has come. Your
young man will be about in a day or
two, and next time he will have better
sense than to be tinkering with tin
on top of a house on his wedding day
-he'll know his hands are liable to
be shaky. "
"I hope he'll not have another
wedding day," replied Hebby, smil
ing. That afternoon, when the two
were alone and the new house very
quiet, Hebby. sat hold his hand and
looking down at him.
"You seem different, somehow,
Hebby," he^said. "I never saw your
eyes look like that before."
"You never saw your wife's eyes
before," she answered, blushing.
"Maybe, though, you don't like the
"But I do!" he protested, and
Hebby looked away out of the win
dow, to where on a shelf on the back
porch sat the shoe-box of roses. She
had opened and looked into them.
They were wrapped in wet cottop, and
the heat was already withering them.
Poor Miss Patty knew so little about
packing flowers! The little soul had
forgotten all about the Governor in
Rufus' accident, and had not even
thought of her box of roses when she
hurried back home to make prepara
tions, very proud that Hebby had
asked her to come back and stay with
them that night.
"Rufus," said Hebby, after a pause,
"the doctor thinks you will be out by
day after to-morrow. Do you think
you could stand the trip up to the
city? If you can, I'd like to take that
trip you spoke, of. "
"Would you, Hebby?" he cried,
gladly. "Well, I'd like that, and we'd
see the Governor."
"I wonder if you would mind tak
ing Miss Patty, too?" said Hebby,
"Well, rather not, considering that
if it hadn't been for Miss Patty I
wouldn't be caring any more about
Governors or wedding trips, either.
Yes, let's take her, by all means, if
she'd like to go."
A few days later a young woman
in bridal gray and a tall young man
with his^arm in a sling walked into
the grounds about the Capitol. Be
tween them was an eager-faced little
old woman, whose blue eyes were tak
ing In all the sight!; and whose tongue
was going cheerily.
"I'd think they were the traditional
bridal couple, if lt wasn't for the
old lady," said the Governor's special
friend to the tall, handsome woman
at his side; and just then the trio
"How can we see the Governor?"
"On business?" said the friend.
"Oh, no-just see him and hear
him talk-maybe he might be going
to make a speech. We just want to
see him," said Rufus; and then Miss
Patty put in, proudly:
"And we've brought him some flow
ers from the first civilized rose-bushes
that ever were planted in the prairie
soil of Clinch County."
"Clinch? The best county in the
State for farming, and the one that
gave the Governor his biggest ma
jority!" exclaimed the gentleman,
And then Miss Patty's enthusiasm
poured itself out in a torrent as she
told him how she admired the Gov
ernor, and how her people and the
grandparents of Rufus and Hebby had
been the first settlers in Clinch Coun
ty; how she had watched the land
blossoming out into home3 and towns,
with their churches and school
houses, homes and happiness for
thousands who came first because the
price of land made it possible for
them to live. s
The gentleman listened very cour
teously, and if Hebby felt a little fear
that Miss Patty was becoming tire
some, she did not allow her restless
ness to show itself. The woman in
the wonderful white dress, a filmy,
cobwebby thing which Hebby decided
had been purchased with a regal dis
regard of wearing qualities, stood
looking down into Miss Patty's eager
face, listening in the queerest way,
as if something she had heard before
was assuming form and meaning to
her. She did not smile, and there
was a tired little droop to her eyes,
but there was that in her exquisite
ness, her grace and softness, that re
minded Hebby of the hothouse flow
ers, with their long stems and won
"Oh, that was so Interesting!" she
exclaimed, with a sigh, and a smile
that transfigured .the gray eyes, as
Miss Patty, a little abashed at her
own volubility, shrank back toward
Hebby. "I am so glad to have heard
you tell all that! Now, this is Mr.
Marsh, the Governor's secretary,"
continued the lady, "and If you will
give him your address, he will send
you cards for a reception at the man
sion to-night. I know the Governor
will be glad to see you. And don't
forget to send him the roses this
afternoon," she concluded, with an
That night, when the three came
to where the Governor- stood, he
seemed to know, and to be expecting
them, so hearty was his hand-shake,
so cordial his greeting; and lo! there
by his side stood the lady they had
seen in the Capitol grounds, and on
the bosom of her silken gown lay a
great bunch of red Irish roses.
Mis? Patty almost jumped with sur
prise and delight when she recognized
them there, and the Governor's wife
"Didn't you notice the Governor's
button-i-_le?" she whispered; and
sure enough, he, too, wore a tiny bud
from the first civilized rose-bush that
ever grew in Clinch County.
The next morning, as the three
were journeying home from their
bridal tour, Rufus read to his wife
and Miss Patty from the newspaper

Cats That Have Only Two Legs.
Linoln Park "zoo" probably will
have two remarkable additions to its
large family of animals within the
next few days. These are a pair of
two-legged cats which N. Slotkin,
236 1-2 Madison street, contemplates
placing with Cy De Vry, keeper of
the zooligical garden. The cats were
brought from Sydney, Australia, and
arrived in Chicago Saturday. In
shape of body, except for the absence
of hind legs,* they are the exact pro
totype of the ordinary house cat. On
account of possessing only two legs
they resemble to some extent the
kangaroo, yet differing from that ani
mal, they walk on their front legs,
which are of normal size and shape.
Their gait may be liekend to that of
a tight-rope walker as they gracefully
poise themselves, retaining perfect
equilibrium. They possess no hips or
joints of any kind which may ' have
been intended for the missing legs,

without interruption- to the tail. They
were examined with great interest by
certain German professors at Bremen
