The Annua! Meeting Of The
Ohio B. Y. P. (I.
To Occur Tuesday Morning
In The Auditorium
Sunday was a great day at Hiawatha
Lake assembly. The weather was ex
tremely delightful throughout the day
and evening, and the services wero
largely attended. The crowds wero
made up largely of religious people,
and nearly every person, who visited
the assembly attended tho services.
The Sunday school session at 9:00
o'clock was a great featuro of the
day and the lesson was presented In
a most attractive wny. At 10:30.,. Dr.
Stucker of Ottawa, Kan., the assemb
ly' pastor preached an excellent ser
mon to a large audience. Dr. Llil
coln Hulley of Demand, Fla., arrived
at the park Sunday afternoon just In
time to fill his appointment at 2
o'clock. He preached on "The Ele
ments of the Blessed Life," using the
beatitudes as the basis for his re
marks. This address was the first of
tho series that Dr. Hulley will deliver
this week on "The Teaching of Jesus;"
The auditorium was filled to its ca
pacity Sunday evening, when Prof.
John Duxbury of Manchester, Eng.,
gave his recital on "Tho Book of Job."
Tho evening was opened with a most
delightful service of song, led by Rev.
Mr. Grlffeth of Zanesvllle, assembly
chorister. Among the numbers used
was "The Glory Song," which was
sung with power and enjoyment.
Prof. Duxbury's recital was wonder
ful and Impressive. He gave his voice
and manner to each of the characters
In this well-known story, and carried
In a unique way to the great audi
ence each word and thought of the
book. It was much like a sermon, pre
sented by the living characters, the
Lord, the Adversary, Job. his wife
and his friends. Nothing like this has
heretofore been given a Mt. Vernon
audience, and the Book of Job was
given a new meaning to those who
heard Prof. Duxbury.
On Saturday evening Mr. Duxbury
recited Dlcken's Christmas Carol most
interestingly, placing before his audi
ence old Screws, the banker-miser and
the other characters in such a life-like
way that tho story will not soon be
forgotten by those who had the pleas
ure of hearing It. Ho closed that re
cital with Poe's "The Bells," and "Old
Farmer Gray." In giving "The Bells"
the wonderful tonal qualities and the
complete mastery of his voice wero
shown. The lyric musical quality of
the poem was clearly brought out,
and each word spoken by Mr. Dux
bury was full of tho musical rhythm of
silver sleigh bells, golden bells of the
silver sleigh bells, golden bells of tho
wedding, the clanging fire alarm bell
and tho deep toned church bell tolling
its message. Mr. Duxbury received
applause at the close of each stanza,
this Indicating how well the selection

Senator Brown's address Saturday
afternoon was heard by a fair-sized
audience. As an attraction, tho sena

For a Woman
By SADIE OLCOTT
Copyright, 1910. by American Press
"Jaqucs," said the wife of .Inqucs
Chaboullez, "1 wish you would not bo
so Intimate with Pierre Fabrl. Ho
has Italian blood in his veins, and I
don't place faith In those people."
"Pierre is my best friend."
"And you will not bo on your guard
"No. You women take sudden dis
likes. Ten to one Pierre has not
treated you with that deference or con
sideration a woman craves from all
"Ho has treated me with tho utmost
"What do you mean by that?"
"Well, since I must cither tell you
or leave you to stupidly put yourself
in his power I will do so. Know then
that before I married you Pierre, pro
posed to me."
"Ah! Well, If a woman love3 a man
that another woman loves she will
to gain her ends resort to any trickery
to dispossess tho other. You are a
woman, nnd you look upon Pierre
through a woman's eye. I am not
afraid of him."
This was in 1870, when tho Prussians
were marching into Franco. One day
a party of French soldiers stepped up
to Jnques Chaboullez and arrested him.
They took him to headquarters, and
tho general ordered them to search
him. In ono of his pockets was found
a tiny ball no bigger than a pill. It
was carefully pulled apart and proved
to be tissue paper. On it was written
tho position and strength of the differ
ent French army corps opposing tho
"That is sufficient," said the general.
"Take him out and shoot him."
There was no formality of a trial.
Jaqucs, who was at a loss how to ac
count for tho paper being In his pocket,
was takon out and was about to suf
fer death when n volley caine from a
wood nenr by. It was fired by n lino
of Prussian skirmishers, who had ar
rived Just In time to save poor Jaques'
life. His French gunrds took to their
heels. 'Jaqucs was a true Frenchman,
but he would rather live among his
country's enemies than die among his
Tho territory in which Jaques Cha
boullez lived was from that time till
tho end of the war occupied by the
Prussians, so that he had no cause for
'fear that he would be shot for a spy.
Both he and his wife knew that the
paper which had convicted him had
been put into his pocket by some one
who was anxious to get him out of the
way. Mme. Chaboullez suggested that
it might be her husband's friend, Pierre
Fnbri. Jaques was very wroth with
her for Intimating such a thing.
Ono evening when Jaques came homo
bo found no supper, nor did he find his
wife. Thero was not even a firo in
tho stove. Astonished, he went out
and inquired of the neighbors if they
had seen Mme. Chaboullez. After many
Inquiries he learned that she, in com
pany with Fabri, had been seen going
toward the Prussian picket line. Then
be began to lament and to curse and
to swear, saying that no man could be
sufficiently guarded against the duplic
ity of women. His wife had been en
deavoring to prejudice him against his
best friend, and now she bad gone off
with that friend..
Nothing was seen or beard of Mme.
Chaboullez or Pierro Fabrl, and the
deserted husband assumed that to get
rid of him or to be where be could not
get at them to punish them they had
gono within the French lines. As tho
days passed and be heard nothing of
them be made up his mind tlmt his
wife, in order that he might be shot,
thus rendering her n widow and en
abling her to marry her lover, had put
tho paper in his pocket that had so
nearly cost him his life. This falling,
she had gone off with Pierre.
Ono evening when ho was almost
ready to kill himself through grief and
anger at the treatment he had receiv
ed his wife walked Into their home.
His first impulse was to order her
away. Then it occurred to him that
If she had gone awny with Fabrl she
would not have returned. But be had
not loug to wait for an explanation.
She threw n piece of paper on tho
table. He picked it up nnd read on it a
confession from Fabrl that he had put
the paper In her husband's pocket and
then informed on him. Amazed, ho
asked her how she had obtained it
"I told Pierre," she replied. "I bad
long regretted that 1 hnd not married
him instead of you. Then I proposed
that we go within the French lines
and live together where you would not
flud us. So we went through tho
Prussiau outposts nnd on Into tho
French lines. 0 tho way I told
Pierre that I knew he had placed tho
paper In the pocket that was found
there, that I forgave him because ho
did It for love of mo and that if bis
ruso had succeeded we could havo
been married instead of living together
illicitly. Ho denied that be had done
this, so I refused to go any further
with him until he admitted IL He did
so. nnd I had llttlo trouble later in get
ting that written confession."
"Where is Pierro now? I shall kill
hlml" exclaimed .Chaboullez.
"Pierre Is dead."
"Yes. I served him as ho served
you. I put information in his pocket
for the Prussians and then Informed
on him for n spy."
"Pouf! No man can bo so big a
devil as a woman."
And he embraced her.
