It IM gratifying Indeed to find Henutnr Hard

things of yesterday. "I am happy to drink of
the iiuhlove monts of Iho post for my Inspiration
foi tho morrow," he sold. And again: "llvuiy
hope of life is of tomorrow, but the glory of ten
thousand morrows wns wrought In the wisdom
gleamed on yesterday "
True, nnd superbly stated!
What a lebulte for the little ohlrplen that
continue to Insist Hint everything of yesterday
v.ns wrong, that all the wise men nf tho earth
aro living now; thnt to see In ancestry anything
sublime Is In selfishly blind one's eyes to the
possibilities of posterity.
The evperlenco of yesterday Is the armour
of safety for tomorrow. Tho so-rnlled states
men who see nothing worth whltu In tho grent
titalo principles of the public; who ridicule
Wnshlngton. Jeffeison. Lincoln, Cleveland and
Itoosevelt yea, and oven llm deculogue, are not
ll0 leaders for a people who lake as mtlrh
pride In anccstjy as Ihcy posess hope and confi
dence In posterity.
Tho United States' Its domrstio affairs no
less than Its foreign relations Is In the difficult
position It occupies today becauso it has been
too long under tho direction of a reglmo that
considered Itself all sufficient; that fefusod to
bn suldcd by the traditions of tho republic, that
Ignored policies observed by nil predecrssDrs nnd
under which tlin nation hud prospered and
grown great, t Ant has lost no opportunity to
embrace tho pev' and blurro in statecraft, dl
plornnry and speculative economy.
Fortunate Indeed Is tho republic to havo a
Harding to sound tho call for a return to those
polcleH nnd ttadltlons wo all know arc sound.
If such Is reactlonurylsm, tjtcn It Is rcnctlon-

going to bo terribly shocked over the amount of
money used In the campaign by tho lepublicans.
Governor Cox wan unfortunate In raising such
a question.
Clavcrnor Cox is himself a millionaire. Mr.
Oeorge White, his campaign manager, In a mil

and campaign Is a millionaire proposition to

Senator Harding Is n country newspaper
man with a fortune that iloeit not run Into ntx

Is a country lawyer, whoso fortune probaby doen

A well known newspupcr writer, describing
the notltlUtlon events of both partleo, says tho
democratic notification was remarkable for Its
display of wealth and show, whllo tho republi
can notification at .Marlon wan simple and ex
ceedingly democratic.
Wo aro afraid that Oovurnor Cox was yelling
"Wolf!" for a purpose.
A certain national organization that ii gat
ing ready for a grand attack on tho public Is
offering a prize for u sultablo substitute for
tho objectlonnl term, "drive." It is not tho
yword, "drive," that has become a stench In the
nostrils ot decency, but the praotlco It de

"Senator Harding Is a fine man a very flno

CHAPTER XCVII.
Donald was nearly nsleep when we
finally left the taulo, tint not so
much so that he didn't beg his dad
die to carry him upntalrs. Hob 'did
so, and then after giving Donald to
Nellie with orders to put him to lied
at once, ho came slowly down stairs.
I could not help but notlso how
hla feet dragged; ns If he were sure
of something disagreeable to meet,
nnd would put It off as long as pos
sible. I had taken some sewing Into the
llhrary, and when he came In, 1 rose,
and closed the door. I had no wish
tn take the servants Into my con
fidence, although Delia I w;u sure
suspected many things.
Hob did not sit, down, lie lighted
a strong cigar, then walked back
and forth while he smoked furiously.
"Well havo you decided anything,
.Margaret?" ho finally nsked, as he
stopped for a 'moment In front of
mc. then resumed his restless pac
ing. "Y'cn, Hon, I have decided," I said,
nnd although my voice trembled a
tittle, I know I should not break
down. I had steeled myself ngalnst
giving way to tears, rind that woyld
enablo me to talk calmly.
"Well?" ho asked again.
"Won't you sit down, Hob. Wo
Mil talk more comfortably thnn
when you walk back nnd forth."
He drew up n chair on the oppo
site sldo ot the table. I laid my work
down, nnd looked directly at him,
thinking all thn time that Elsie had
promised to help me.
I knew tho crucial moment In my
tlfe had come; that no matter h'w
long I lived never would I havo
such n task again. I felt very sol
emn, nnd I think Iloh did nlso. He
leaned his head on his hand, and
wnlted. Hin cigar had gone out; nnd
tho lifeless thing wss held between
his lips, dragging a little on one cor
ner of his mouth Some way that
eold. dead cigar affected me. I could
not talk while he held It so, Huch
imall things Intrude upon our great
moments
"Please, either light your cigar, or
Dy JANE HIEU$
take It out of your mouth." 1 said,
rather Impatiently.
Hob repressed a gesture of sur
mise nnd did ns I asked him. Ho re
lighted the cigar.
"I have decided, Robert, to nsk

waited beforo I kept my promise to

In a year, "and It nl the end of tho
year you still feel as you do now, I
will not oppose any step you wish
to take. Hut for iho sake of tho
hoys; for my sake, give me a year."
then ns a fleeting look of doubt
swept over his fnce. I added, "I
mean Just what I say, Hob. If ut
tho end of the year you wish a svp
nratlon even a divorce" my volco
broke, but after n moment I
steadied and went on, "I shall not
offer a single objection. You aro
young, you havo a long llfo to do
aa you will. (Irant me tbo one year."
"Hut to what purpose? To drag
on tho misery, the quarrels, the con
stant disagreements? I shall make
you comfortable In every way. I
ahull do what I can lor you. Will
you not let me go?" ,
"Think nf the hyr. Hob." I Mid.

see them whenevor I wish."
'That will mean seeing mc."
"Not necessarily."
"Hob, will you grant my request?"

When sorrow comes, as come It must,
In tiod a man must pl.ico his trust.
There Is no power In mortal speech
Tho anguish of his soul to roach,
No voice, however sweet and low,
Can comfort him or ease the blow.
He oannot from his fellowmen
Take strength that will sustain him then.
With all that kindly hands will do,
And all that Invo muy offer, too.
Ho must bellevo throughout the test
That (led has willed It for tho best.
We who would be his friends are dumb.
Words from our Itpi but roebly come;
We reel as we extend our hands.
That ono power only understands
And truly knows the reason why
So beautiful a soul must die.
We realUo how helpless then
Are all the gifts of mortal men.
No words which wo have power to say
Can take the sting of grief away
Thnt Power which marks the sparrow's fall,
Must comfort and sustain us alt.
When sorrow comes, as coma It must,
In Clod a man must place his trust.
With ull the wealth which he may own,
He then must meet tho test alone,
And only he may stand serene
Who has a faith on which to lean.
WS Molher Hated Slang But
My mother detested rtnng. The uo
of slang expressions wns trj her some
.thing very closely akin to making Up
u bed wltout properly airing It or
going tn a party without a clean
' handkerchief.
! When my nlster or I ured some of
I the slang of our day she used to say
plaintively that she couldn't thtnk
where we got hold of such expres-
Had any one said to me then
thnt my mother used slang I should
have been Incredulous and very likely
indlgnniit, Witlle I considered my
own right to a lntlt.ude ot language
Inalienable to my youth, I felt, if
only subconsciously, that mothors
(and especially mine, who wns of
tho good old-fashioned variety of
genuine mothers) wero different.
One would no more expect them to
use slang than one would expect
thnn to wear short skirts, or dance,
or ride n bicycle, or want the largest
helping of Ice cream. I nm sure If
I had heard my mother say "rubber
neck" or "for the lovo of Mike" the
sound of such words on her lips
would havo horrified me even more
than thiy horrified her when she
heard them on mine.
It was only recently that tho great
revelation came to me. Harking back
to my childhood I had used one ot
my mother's favorite words, "ram
bunctious," and was promptly asked
what It meant by a person who had
not had the advantage of belntr
brought up In New hngland. Sur
prised In her Ignoruncor I explained
nt once that It was my mother's
word for well, for wjiat? I had to
put my reluctant brain to work be-
fore I could find words that gave
effcn a faint favor of what mother
meantwhen she ald: "Now, you
children, you clear right out of this
kitchen; you're getting altogether too
rambunctious." Not satisfied with
my own definition, I finally sought
Mr. Webster's aid. Rambunctious

so It seemed he must hear; and I hid
my trembling hands under, my work.
For fully 10 minutes neither of
us uttered a word. The silence was
becoming unbearable, I wanted to
scream; I knew I should scream It It
went on longer. So I this time nsked:
"Well'"
Hob once ngnln stopped directly
In front of me. Ills fnce was while
nnd drawn, but his volco was steady
yet hopeless as he said:
