How Cannon Was Spiked.
Perhaps no man in the deadlocked

such a general, all-around, eye-blacking,

political nephews put tin- screws to

have been thrown bodily out of the
window of the convention hall.
What happened to Cannon? Well, it
is a long story, but it i- epitomised as
follows bv the Springfield Register:

tired ai.d gaveled Col. Frank O. Low

ditch ami trampled into humiliating
defeat. Cannon's fond hopes went
When Cannon ordered the "i ates

I had been looking for a position as
governess for months. Mother and I
were coming to our last cent, and I
was no nearer finding anything to do
when one morning I took up a paper
to examine the "want" column, when
I came upon this:
Wanted. A" person to take charge of a
pet during owner's absence.
Thinking that I might make a few
dollars a week by keeping the pet in
our rooms, I determined to answer the
advertisement in person, since the ad
dress was given.
I found an old lady who in appear
ance reminded me of pictures 1 had
seen in Dickens' "Dombey and Son"
of Mrs. Tipchin. only the lady who re
ceived me was a spinster and her
name was Miss Brattle. The pet she
required a caretaker for was a par
rot. When I proposed to take it home
with me she declared that Alonzo
would not Ik? contented away from
home and whoever took charge of him
must stay in her house, which would
be kept open during her absence. She
waa a kindly old lady, and I told her
how I was situated, whereupon she
told me I could briug my mother to
stay with me. Since the salary she
offend was considerable for such a
work, after talking the matter over
wilh mother we decided to accept the
The house was to be left In charge
of a manservant and his wife. No one
else was expected to be there unless a
nephew of Miss Brattle should take
It into his head to come to the city.
Miss Brattle departed for a three
months' absence, and mother and I
took possession of a suit of delightful
rooms. Of course we were "in clover,"
the whom house to ourselves, not a
creature to intrude upon us. But one
morning the manservant informed us
that the nephew, Mr. Chester Graves
would be there for dinner and would
occupy the room which had always
biH-n set apart for him. We were sor
ry for this, but hoped he would spend
most of his time elsewhere. Indeed, the
servant told me that usually when in
town he was either engaged in bust
ncss or at his club.
Mr. Graves proved to be a young
man of twenty-five. He was very affa
ble, chatted pleasantly at dinner and
afterward proposed a three handed
game of cards. Mother never plays
cards, so I declined also, but the young
man remained with us and did not go
out till We went upstairs.
I expected that Chester Graves
would stay in town but a few days
or at most a week since the man
servant said that was his customary
visit. He- remained several weeks,
spending most of the early part of the
eveniugs with mother and me. Then he
went away, but in a week In- was back
again. Mother was not at all well and
would go upstairs very early, but as
Mr. Graves declared that he should be
lonely in such a large house without
any one to keep him company mother
said I had better remain in the parlor
till he went to his club, which was
about lo o'clock.
Well, Mr. Graves was in the city
more than half the time during his
aunt's absence and insisted on my
keeping him company every evening
after dinner till 10 o'clock, We usually
sat in the drawing room. Alonzo being
Caged in the library adjoining. Some
how I felt that he served for a chap
eron. At last Miss Brattle wrote that she
would be at home in a few- days, and
my In-art sank at the prospect of leav
ing such pleasant quarters for our un
inviting rooms. Mr. Graves was in the
city when his aunt's letter came, and
he said be would remain and welcome
her. I thought this was partly because
be Wished to cheer me up. seeing that
I was plunged in melancholy. Miss
Brattle arrived about half past 9
o'clock one evening. Mother had gone
to bed. but Mr. Graves and I met the
old lady at the door. The first thing
she did was to go into the library to see
that Alonzo was all right. Then we
three sat in the drawing room chatting.
Presently the old clock In the hall
wheezed out ten slow strokes.
"Ten o'clock. Chester!" came a voice
front the library.
Mr. Graves cast a frightened glance
at me, while I- well. I was in an agony
of terror. For heaven's sake, what
iuore was to come?
"One more kiss, sweetheart.

have noticed the parrot's remarks had

Mr. Graves' embarrassment and my
telltale blushes gave his aunt a per
fectly true account of what had been
transpiring during her absence. With
out a word she arose, evidently with
the intention of leaving us to make our
adieus in our usual way. but as she
was going out Mr. Graves stopjxd her.
He had not asked me to be his wife.
He had merely chosen (I suspected i to
pass time pleasantly with me. Rut he
was a true man and, now that we were
caught, spoke like a man.

What an unblushing lie!
After our marriage Miss Brattle con
fessed that upon seeing me and hear
ing my story she had used me for a
bait to draw her nephew away from
club life. Had it not been for the par
rot the plan might possibly have cost
me dear, though my husband says not.
