It is said the corn is so big in Mis

of the cobs.
And yet it was in 1900 that Hanna
was going about the country telling
the people: "There are no trusts."
And a whole lot of them believed him.
Tin? public executioner of Paris is
said to be one of the most enthusias
tic' of autoniobilists. Evidently he is
not averse to doing business over
time. Billy I.orimer is running his con
gressional campaign by giving vaude
ville shows. The election of a man
like I.orimer to congress is certainly
a great farce.
It costs $823.10 a minute to talk
business with ' .1. Pierpont Morgan.
But that is a mere bagatelle compar
ed with what his silence on the coal
question is costing the public. J
The Detroit Xews thinks that the

claims that since 1890 Burlington has

twenty-four pages of Friday's "Pro

the proposition, and the business and

exploited very favorably.

May the President Leave the Conn-
The possibility that President Roose
velt may carry into effect his avowed
desire to witness the great maneu
vers this fall of the American war
ships in the Caribbean sea, under
command of Admiral Dewey", has
given rise to a discussiou -Jit to the
right and propriety of a president of
the I uited States leaving the juris
diction of his country.
It has been discovered that Presi
dent Washington set the example of
not entering' foreign territory while
president, by making a long detour
in his joiirnev from New York to
Boston in order not to enter Rhode
Island. The reason alleg-ed is that
Khoile Island had not yet accepted
the federal constitution, and so at
that time had not become a meuyber
f the new born United States of
This is "answered with the state
ment that the most direct post route
from New York city, then the feder
al capital, to Boston, was up the
onnecticnt valley via Xew llaveu
ind Hartford and thence eastward. It
did not lie along the Sound, through
southern Connecticut and Khode Isl
and. It is not of record, savs the St. Joe
News, that any president of the
United States has crossed the boun
dary, though Presidents Arthur and
Cleveland are said to have fished a
little over the Canadian line. It is
tradition that has come to be re
garded with respect; but it is by no
means inviolable. Foreign heads of
state, from the czar to the French
president, go a-visiting. It is easily
conceivable that the president of the
United States might find it wise and
gracious to become a guest of Can
ada or .Mexico.

DAILY SHORT STORY
A Revolutionary Episode
In the little town of Springfield there
Is a church over 200 years old. In its
middle age soldiers of the Revolution
were quartered there, and in its old
age it sheltered a regiment marching
to save the capital from the Confeu
erates. There are sixteen panes -of
glass In every sash and sixty-four
panes in every window. The pews re
mind one of pons, aud the pulpit is
perched up under the roof. But the
oldest fashioned thing about it is the
clock In the little steeple.
During the Revolution the care of
the church tAl temporarily into the
hands of oue of the deacons, an ardent
Tory. At the time of the occupation
of the region by the British Deacon
Bradford, occupying neutral ground
between both armies, was especially
diligent In supplying the British with
information and In keepinir his eye
open for patriots who were engaged in
like efforts for the Americans. The
dominie having gone as a chaplain
and the sexton ns a wagon master
with the revolutionists. Deacon Brad
ford slept In the parsonage, which
stood In the next lot to the church. In
order to keep It under his personal su
pervision. His sole duty was once a
week to wind the clock. The rest of
the time he was spying on the Amer
ican army for the benefit of the Brit
One Saturday night he had taken his
lantern and was about to start for the
belfry to wind the clock when he heard
the clatter of horses' hoofs, and a mo
ment later a dozen British horsemen
rode up to the parsonage.
"Deacon," snid the leader, "Impor
tant papers have lecn missed today
from the general's headquarters, and
this evening a youth who has been
loitering near the general's office la
missing. We have tracked a figure
flitting along before us which disap
peared behind the church. Perhaps it
is hiding there."
"No one could get In there," said the
deacon, "without the keys. However,
we will see."
He led the way to the church door.
opeued it. and the soldiers, aided by the
light of the lantern, poked into every
cranny. When no oue was found, they
rode on, followed by the deacon. Be
fore departing he called to his son An
thony, who had come to the church to
see what was going on, to wind tne
clock and be sure not to forget it.
When they had all gone, Anthony
took the lantern and went up Into the
belfry. Setting the' lantern on the
floor, he took up the iron crank, fixed
it to the arlior and began to turn. The
weight seemed unusually heavy, and
Anthony wondered what was the mat
ter. When the crank stopped turning,
the young man stood mute with as
tonishment at seeing a young girl
step off the weight. She was pale as
"Oh, Anthony!" she exclaimed. "I
supposed your father was winding the
clock. If so, I should have been lost."
"What does it all mean?"
"I am trying to get away from Gen
eral 's headquarters with valuable
papers. I know every corner in the old
church and came In by way of a loose
window in the cellar. Then I went into
the weight closet and got on the weight.
I heard them searching, and they open
ed the door to the closet, but I stood
too high for them to see me.
"They said they were after a boy.
My brother Sam was watching his op
portunity to get some papers he had
seen on the general's desk. He did not
know what they were worth, but he
was bound to do something for his
country. When he got them, he brought
them to me, knowing that he would be
suspected. I was going to General
Washington's headquarters with them
when they gave chase."
"Tony!" called a voice from below.
Whatever of color had returned to
the girl's cheeks left them in an in
stant. She recognized the deacon's
voice. Both stood looking at each oth
er, mute with terror.
"Tony," repeated the voice, "If you've
wotmd the clock come down."
Tony was about to do the only thing
he could do go downstairs, leaving the
girl to come out later when he heard
his father's step on the stairs below.
There was but one staircase, aud it
was plain that they were caught In a
"Give me the papers," said Tony.
The girl handed them to him, and,
thrusting them tinder his shirt, he
seized a hatchet lying among other
tools In the clockroom and cut the rope
sustaining the weight, which fell to the
bottom with a thud. Then, opening
a sliding panel used to reach the hands
of the clock, he hastily unwound the
rope and tossed it out. When his
father entered the room, Anthony was
descending by the rope to the ground.
The sight of a young girl where the
deacon expected to find his son was,
to 8a y the least, startling. He looked
from the girl to the rope hanging from
out the room and was more startled
than ever. Taking in the situation,
without speaking a word he turned and
dashed down the steps. When he
reached the. ground, there was the
rope dangling in the wind. Not know
ing what else to do, he started off in
the direction of the American army,
naturally supposing the fugitive would
take this course.
But Tony was too smart to be caught
In this fashion. Hiding behind a tomb
stone in the churchyard, he saw his
father go up the road and as soon
as he was out of bearing called for the
girl to come out. She did so, and the
two hurried away. ' At daylight the
next morning they appeared at the
headquarters of the general command
ing the American forces and supplied
him with information which enabled
him to expel the British from that re
