How the Timid Boy Grew Into
Fearless Journalist' and One of
America's Leading Statesmen
While reading the following, you
would think it was written by a good
democrat for a red-hot democratic
paper. But it was written by Boy
den R. Sparks, who may or may not
be a democrat, for the New York
Tribune, the most staunch republican
paper in the United States.
When Jimmie Cox was a small boy
running barefoot- on his father's
farm in Jacksonburg, Ohio, other
youngsters less imaginative used to
point scornful index fingers in the
direction of his tow head and shout,
"fraidy cat" Little Jimmie was
afraid of the dark.
It seems trivial now, but it was
tragic for that country. , lad. The
taunts hurt his pride far more than
any stone bruise hurt his feet., Final
ly, because of this ridicule, he steel
ed himself to overcome his fear of
the dark, and in succeeding apparent
ly developed an immunity against all
fears.'' -y - ; ;:7;-'
Overcame His Fears
Nowadays, when Jimmie Cox is
master of a fortune that is estimated
to exceed $5,000,000, owns and edit3
two newspapers, has been elected
governor of Ohio three times and is
the democratic nominee for the
presidency, the men who work for
him and his other friends like to at
tribute hia success to his fearlessness.
Dayton, Ohio, where the cash reg
isters are made and the Wright
brothers first envisioned the - aero
plane, was a boss-ridden town when
Jimmy Cox came to town; and. bought
the moribund "News" with its boiler
plate columns and feeble circulation.
That was in 1898. Immediately he
started in to provide the , people of
Dayton with a paper with a vigorous
news policy. " . .
"Doc" Lowes was the political boss
of Dayton and "Doc" "proved to be a
splendid grindstone for young Cox,
then, twenty-eight years of age, to
sharpen his circulation on. The mu
nicipal government reeked with graft.
' The . News" exposed this situation
beneath headlines that showed a total
disregard for the nrice of nrintini?
ink. , ' I , ; . .
Frequently when Publisher Cox,
who was also Manainc Editor Cox
and Telegraph Editor Cox and Re
porter Cox and Advertising Solicitor
Cox, appeared at his office therev
would be a delegation waiting for
him, heavy-handed friends of "Doc"
Lowes. If Jimmie couldn't whip them
hi bluffed them.
The Last Rough Stuff
About the last of these experiences
occurred when he had just acquired a
private office, half frosted glass and
half matchboard partition. Jimmie
was very proud of that office, and on
the first day it was ready to be used
he arrived at the News to find a
thick-shouldered, scowling rough neck
waiting "to see" Mr. Cox. It was a
henchman of "Doc" Lowes. "
Jimmie led the way into his pri
vate office. Some of the old em
ployes of the News say that as the
visitor followed him into the sanctum
they saw him spit on his hands.
The door closed on them; the em
ployees waited nervously. Then, tho'
no words had been spoken, the News
staff heard the scuffle of, feet and a
chair overturned. There was a crash
of glass ar d a splintering of wood.
The rough neck was catapulted thru
a wall of the private office and lighted
on the back of his neck four steps
from the bottom of the narrow flight
that led up from the street He didn't
return, but the private office was pri
vate no longer. It was just wreck
age. Father a Republican
Cox hadn't learned how to run a
newspaper in a day or a week. His
ability had a background. "" Neither
had he acquired the tough muscles
with which he bounced the friend of
"Doc" Lowes without hard work.
To begin, James Middleton Cox
was born March 31, 1870, on a small
farm. near Jacksonburg, Butler coun
ty, Ohio. His father was Gilbert Cox,
a farmer who voted or Lincoln and
his republican successors, and his
mother was Elizabeth Andrews Cox.
Jimmie was the youngest of seven
children, and, while he was still a
tipy chap, the country gossips were
given plenty to talk about in a suit
for divorce filed at the county seat by j
"Gib" Cox, Little Jimmie's mother
Went away from the farm. His oldest
sister, now Mrs. John Q. Baker, wife
of the postmaster of Middletown,
Ohio, went with hem. She is Jimmie's
favorite today. ,
The other children were William,
who now conducts a small candy, to
bacco and soft drink shop in Dayton;
Mary Catherine, now Mrs. William
F.&spcofF, wife of a Dayton painter of
buggies and automobiles; John Cox,
who works in the Dayton gas office;
Charles Cox, who works for a Detroit
automobile concern, and one other
brother, who is employed on the

when the family was broken up. When

Ilartin, whose school teacher. husband
Y.sd died, leaving her with three chil
dren. The tvo broods of youngsters
grew up together, and little Jimmie
grew fond of his father's wife;
She said of him a day or two ago;
m C ainA - . " i
in my heart for Jimmie and-hevhas
been just as good as he could be to his
father and me. Seems - strange that
he is going to be president. When
he was quite a young boy fee was a
republican, but he switched over in a
hurry. He'd argue with any one
about politics and hold up his - efiA,
too, when he was quite small. Had
to scold him for it sometimes, because
it seemed like he was sassin' his

"He was always a-studying, wheth
er you wanted him to or not. lie just
wouldn't idle. Mr. Cox "is so frail
now we can't go around much, but
Jimmie comes over to see us when
ever he can. After he had gone thru
the little school tit Jacksonville he
went over to Amanda, ;' where his
brother-in-law, John Q. Baker, was in
charge of the schools,
"When -he was eighteen they all
moved to Middletown, where Mr. Ba
ker had something to do with 'The
Signal and Jimmie, after teaching
school for a while, went to work
It was a country school at Amanda
that Jimmie attended and he . was
graduated when he was sixteen and
then was offered a position as a dis
trict school teacher. He accepted with
a certain amount of trepidation, due
in part to the necessity of disciplin
ing the strong farm lads who were
among his pupils and also because he
was distressingly sure that some of
the big girls and boys in his class
would know more than he did.
"I had to study every lesson over
and over at home before I dared give
it to the class," he once confessed.
"Often it was as new to ; me and as
unintelligible as it was to the pupils."
During one of his school vacations
he had worked as printer's "devil" on
"The Middletown I Signal," a weekly
paper. Middletown is not far from
Amanda. Mostly he had cleaned ink
rollers and type, but occasionally he
had been t allowed to prepare an
"item," and the virus got into his
blood .He; wanted to be , a real re
porter, V ".Vvi.:.':'-.:;
.Then ' his brother-in-law V acquired
"The Signal," and Jimmie left the
school and went to work as city editor,-
reporter, . make-up man and cir
culation manager of the paper. Re
cently he displayed - a yellowed copy
of one of these old "Signals" and with
twinkling eyes pointed out a column
he had "Written about the people of
Middletown. This is a sample:
ti- "Mrs. Street, the charming -wife of
our up-to-date grocer, Mr. John
Street, accompanied by her beautiful
and winsome daughter, Miss Helen
Street, spent today in i-Cincinnati.
Mrs.; Street made the trip to - the
Queen City on the 7:18 train and will
return on the 6:02. Mrs. Street wore
a gray tarveilng suit, while , Miss
Helen looked stunning in a dark blue
gown." . . :
.-''I What a Wreck Did
Jimmie was growing ; restless on
"The Signal" when one night a train
was wrecked just outside of Middle-
towr. Jimmie telegraphed the "story
to "The Cincinnati Enquirer." Sev
eral persons had been killed in the
wreck, but this simply proved anew
the old adage that 'tis an ill wind that
blows nobody good. ! Jimmie received
an offer from the Enquirer to come
to Cincinnati and work probably be
cause it was believed that he would
come cheaply. He did too, and a few
mouths later he was the railroad edi
tor, which meant that he made the
rounds of the railroad offices every
day and gleaned some copy and more
experience. They counted him a good
reporter in Cincinnati before he had
been there very long- r
Incidentally, it was not so long be
fore that the rival paper, "The Cin
cinnati- Commercial Gazette," had
numbered among its cubs a husky
ycuth just out of ; college who an
swered to the name, of Bill Taft. And
about the same time up in Marion,
Ohio, one Warren Gamaliel Harding,
a gawky youth, was struggling to
make a living out of "The, Marion
Jimmie was fired from the En
quirer because of a story he wrote.
It was one of the luckiest things thai
ever happened to him. He went back
to Middletown with less than $5 in
his pocket' and sought out Paul Sorg,
who had grown rich through his to
bacco fields and wanted to represent
his district in Congress,
Jimmie's father, "Gib" Cox, now
eighty-six years old and a resident of
Camden, Ohio, a town of 1800 people
about twenty miles from Dayton, told
a few days ago how Sorg decided that
Jimmie would tuit him as secretary,
Old "Gib" fs getting mighty feeble
and there are days when he doesn't
manage to totter down to Billy Wil
son's grocery store and talk politics
with the loungers there, but stays
heme and sits in the faded parlor and
talks to visitors about Jimmie. He is
deaf and his memory is partially
clouded sky. He says:
"I don't recollect much,"
The old man is white haired and
has a stubby white mustache and
chin beard. His days are drawing to
an end, and he spends much of his
time napping. t
"There were soma peculiar circum
stances connected with Jimmie's go
Ing to work for Paul Sorg." he said.
"While he was teaching he had a day
and night class. There was a German
boj in the night school. He was poor
and worked in a factory by day. Then
there was a holiday.- I cant remem
ber whether it was Christmas or the
fourth of July, and some of the young
fellows got to cutting up. They had
ja big time. John Oglesby, a banker,
j fired off a pistol and shot this young
w - w .w
So did about four others.
"Then the German boy's case, was
taken up and it was fixed for him to
sue for the worth of his eye. The
other side got every witness to leave
town but Jimmie. They wanted him
to take some money and leave the
county, but Jimmie said;
"No, sir, I'm going to stick to that
poor Dutchman and he did. He made
a. good wimess, recollecting every
thing' that had happened, and the
German Boy won his suit.
Why He Was Hired
"Paul Sorg heard . Jimmie testify
and he said when Jimmie came back
" 'He made a hell of a -good wit
ness- and he'll make a hell of a good
secretary and he hired him.
"After that after thatOh, I can't
recollect nothing any more. A word
or two and I forget"
Whatever it was old "Gib" couldn't
remember, Jimmie Cox did go to work
for Representative Sorg as his sec
retary. He stayed with him until
about 1898, when he resigned, with
the friendship of Sorg and the idea
of going back ; into the newspaper
business as a publisher.
The Dayton News" was for sale.
It was owned by a banker named
Siicms, who couldn't see any advan
tage in owning a plant that cost him
money and brought him no pleasure.
Sorg assisted young Cox to finance
the deal, which didn't require a great
dear of money. W
Jimmie was married then to Mary
Harding and they had a couple of
children. With a family dependent
on him he worked furiously. ."Doc"
Lowes and his ring of politicians were
the targets of the shafts in the News,
but the objective of, Cox was circula
tion, and The News began to get it.
