He made it a point, however un
happily his cause was progressing,
never to seem downcast You would
leave bun. probably thinking it a pity
that such an attractive man should
be so unpractical and the object ot so
many bitter and powerful enmities. If
tbe truth must be told. New Chelsea
was more than a little disappointed
In John Onnmeade.
His health was not always good.
He had suffered a serious illness dur
ing one winter and, between the duties
of office, tbe cares of a growing pri
vate practice and the Incessant labors
of politics, bis body bad been sadly
overtaxed. He was still district at
torney, last trophy of tbe reform wave
that had swept over tbe shattered
machine. Pnder the leadership of
Greene, an ex-gutnbter and former lien
tenant of Sheehnn. less obviously tbe
brute and far shrewder than the de
posed boss, tbe f'ltimvflle organisation
bad risen from its nsbes. He bad re
captured all the county offices, except
when John, a candidate for re-election,
had won through personal popularity
and by a scant margin.
Politics Is a hard taskmaster. John
found poor compensation In the fact
that he had become well known
throughout the state. The year after
the Benton county reform he had loin
ed himself to the cause of Judge »rnv.
an honest and capable lawyer who
dared to ask the old party nomina
tion for governor against tbe organisa
tion's choice. Wltb the Judge John
Jiade a vigorous stumping campaign
In every county of the state. He was

nated easily according to the "slate."
Judge Dunmeade was nor nominated
to the supreme court that year hence
the breach of a lifelong friendship, in
creased bitterness against his son and
many I-told-you-sos from Miss Roberta.
But John preached on. He did more
than attack. He devised and proffered
remedies with a naive disregard of tne
conservative habit of the American
mind that incited mirth in some, ap
prehension in others and bewilderment

In those days—to be exact, three
years after tbe destruction of tbe
Sbeebau machine—there was strife iu

the devoted beads of Murchell aud
Duffy, tbe respective bosses, hurtled
abuse from strauge quarters. Anxious

Sherrod candidate was'wttbdrawn and
Sherrod himself substituted. Amid
confusion that amounted almost to
riot he was nominated.
I A nonpartisan candidate was put up
that fall. John and Jerry Brent were
most active In his support They made
what was said to be a remarkable
campaign, nnd In every county they
were met with tremendous enthusi
asm. People flocked by thousands to
hear them nnd cheered themselves
hoarse as the young orators excoriated
the bosses. But on election day the
people marched to tbe polls, voted as
they had aiwnrs done and elected the
old party ticket by a majority of
more than 100.000.
Tbe campaign fixed John's place
firmly in the public mind. This place.
one that a practical man would have
thought twice before seeking, was won
•t the cost of much of his buoyant
optimism. It "almost cost biro bis life
also. A heavy cold contracted during
the last davs of the campaign eventu
ally settled Into a stubborn case of
pneumonia. There were many n-nxlous
davs in tbe Dunmeade home. Nor was
Miss Roberta'8 anxiety unshared.
Through three consecutive nights
Hugh Dunmeade never sought bis
conch, but kept a'constant vigil bv his
son's lKMlslde. listening to the painful
breathing and. without protest, to the
reproaches of an Inner voice. When
the Christmas halldnvs arrived John
was still confined to his room.
That winter Senator Murchell varied
Ms program by spending the congres
sional recess nt his legal residence*
And one Sunday morning he came
face to face with the Jndge and Miss
Roberta In the vestibule of the- Presby
terian church. It was the first meet
lug In more than two years.
"Tbe doctor tells me John ought to
fo south and won't. If it's on account
of—er—money matters." tbe senator
looked carefully trat Into the street
"III be glad to help out"
"No. sir." the Jndge pat to stiffly.
"If John needs money it is my right
to provide it." It bad not occurred to

"At least my sou Is an honorable

Roberta with 11

FLUNG FROM A WINDOW.
of a Death Sewtenos- In the
Middle Aflss In Bunsmia.
How many people know what refeu
•stration means? Yet it was once a
popular method of executing criminals
and was tbe mode of capital punish
ment used in Bohemia to tbe middle
ages and later. Defenestration means
"throwing from a window." but that
did not always include all tbe arrange
ments made for tbe doomed man's,
exit from tbe world.
In Prague in 1419 the council cham
ber of tbe hradscbin, or town ball, was
used as tbe place of execution. There.
In the presence of tbe assembled no
bles, their invited guests and tbe dig
nitaries' of the city, the unhappy
wretches were cast from a window
eighty feet to the courtyard below. I
If his crime was an ordinary of
fense the prisoner was merely dropped
on the stones and allowed to lie there
bruised and broken until death put an
end to bis sufferings, succor being for
bidden.
But if be was guilty of treason or
any act of violence against a noble he
fell on the sharp spears of a squad of
soldiers or dropped to the tender mer
cies of a pack of fierce dogs specially
trained for tbe purpose, or he mlg'it
be flung to wild boars previously en
raged by being pricked with spears
The last time defenestrntiou was
practiced was just before the Thirty
Years' war. wheu tbe Imperial, com
missioners brought nn unwelcome mes
sage to Prague ani were promptly
thrown from the window. This pre
cipitated tbe war id abolished tbe
custom.—New York i*ress.
Heedless Use of Opiates.
It Is perhaps a conservative estimate
that only 10 |er cent of tbe entire drug
consumption to
this^.
country is applied
to tbe purpose of blunting incurable (,tg
pain. Thus no per cent of the opiates
used are, strictly speaking, unneces
sary. In tbe Innumerable cases that
have come under my observation 75 per
cent of tbe habitual users became such
without reasonable excuse. Beginning
wltb small occasional doses, they real
ised within a few weeks that they had
lost self control and could not discon
tinue the Use of tbe drug.—Charles B.

Third party Progressives are work
ing on a similar bill, and they may

decorated rotunda of the state capt

Ms military staff in their gold-braided
uniforms, Governor Eberhart received
more than 6,000 persons last night.
It was the first inaugural reception
held In St. Paul for 15 years, the first
of its kind In the present capitol. The
last previous reception was given by
Governor Merri&m li 1898. Mrs. Eber
hart stood with the governor.
The capitol Insurgent house mem
bers began their attack on tbe Rines
organization by repeated attempts to
amend the report of the committee on

control of the Rines forces. They
were defeated at every turn by over

Rines forces reached as high as 100
members.
St. Paul, Jan. 10.—The session ol

report. This committee is composed
of Senators Saugstad, Rustad and

The committee held sessions in Min
neapolis until the courts decided thai
it could not compel witnesses to ap
pear before it, since it was not a Joint
committee of the house and senate
and was not sitting during the ses
sion. When the committee hold ses
sions In St Paul only one or two
witnesses appeared. It was largely
game of waiting on the part of the
senators. The senators declare, how*
ever, that the treatment, accorded
them by city officials and brewery
men who were summoned has simply

According to Senator Saugstad then

the committee by private individuals.
N. J. Holmberg of the House Is at
