There were wheels within wheels!

It was hard to discover what actuated

Sears, but along about noon different
tactics were adopted. It then became
clearly apparent that it was the field

Sears, and the only way for Carter to
win was to go it alone. So the word
was sent forth to vote for Carter. At
five o'clock Carter was beaten; then the
gravel train, band wagon and calliope

business. In fact, it was

be In as good spirits and strength as
usual in the morning, and ate quite a
hearty breakfast. Between ten and
eleven o'clock she complained of a severe
pain in ber breast, and in a few minutes
she bad passed away. She seemed to

family that nothing would do ber any

were by ber bedside, saying: "Girls,
I will soon be home." closed herjeyes and
