Chicago democrats are working like
beavers getting every thing in readiness
for the proper reception and entertain,
ment of convention visitors.
After Harrison had been in cffi -e
twenty months the republican party ex
perienced the worst defeat it ever suf
fered in a national election.
Wonder if the new stock of republican
ammunition is composed entirely of blank
cartridges, as was that of the congress
ional campaign of 1893?
The interests of our public schools will
be best subserved by the ekction of Di
rectors Carter and Durham, and it should
be seen to that they are returned.
The I'cicn claims to have a lot of cam
paign ammunition to be used against Mr.
Cable. This is a rt freshing bit of news,
indeed, and leads one to hcpe that the
polluted! and foul-smelling powder used
by the Union two years ago, has been
supplanted with a cleaner brand.

Inter State Commerce Ct mmissioner
Morrison, eays a Washington dispatch,
is beginning to loom up as a democratic
possibility at Chicago, one of his most
pronounced adherents being Representas
tive Fithian. "Of course the convention
is going to do what it thinks best for the
democratic party," he remarked, "but I
have decided opinions as to wh-1 would
be best. Nomin-ite William R. Morrison,
and, my word for it, the Minneapolis can
didate would get few e'.tctoral votes in
the northwest. He can carry as many
eastern votes too, as any other man. On
the tariff question he had and ex
pressed decided views long before that
issue retichc-d its present prominence. He
is a safe man, with a great record, and
his record, and his private and public life
is without a bltmish. He would run like
a prairie Are and sweep the country."
George R. Wendling, the famous
southern orator, is also outspoken in be
half of Col Morrison, and in the course
of a conversation said: "lam asked to
say what my recent journey ings in 23
states lead me to believe about demo
cratic candidates. I say first that I wish
Cleveland could be elected. But it is
vehemently asftrtcd that be cannot carry
New Yoik. I say next that if this be true
his crimination means defeat, and the
party of reform miist take a m-in who in
carnates, as Cleveland docs, the idea of
tariff reform, and because of the condit
ion of things in New York that man
should come from the west. There is
such a man, and lately he is much in the
minds of thoughtful men. What state
does he hail from?
" Illinois in her great crises gave to the
nation Douglas the statesman, Lincolc
the martyr, and Grant the magnanimous;
one an immortal senator, one an immortal
leader, one an immortal soldier. Now
when another great crisis is upon us, and
death struggle is at hand between the
masses and the classes, between the peo
ple and the factory lords and tariff kings,
Illinois can give you another of her sons;
can give you the intrepid, the sagacious,
and the incorruptible patriot, soldier, and
statesman, Col. William Ti. Morrison.
' It was William R. Morrison who re
ported to the convention of 1884 the
very platform on which Cleveland was
elected, the platform which asserted that
'unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation,
and it was he who fearlessly proclaimed
in the halls of congress that 'protection
other than that incidental to revenue is
spoliation.' It was Morrison who for
10 years did more than any living per
son to give vitality and prominence to
tariff reform. It is William R. Mor
rison, and 1 speak with the solemnity of
a judicial oath and with the sincerity of
a man standing under the immediate eye
of God, it is Morrison, the patriot, the
oldier, the statesman, and the friend of
the people, who can lead us to victory
Nominate him, for he has had 34
years of public life and comes with
clean hands, comes with a pure heart,
comes with a record as invulnerable as
Gibraltar, and a reputation as spotless as

OLD POINT EPISODE.
If there is oie spot in the world where
people ought o le agreeable it is nt Old
Point Comfort. In the winter, of course.
But if there is one place where the angu
larities and acidities of human nature are
accentuated it is at this fashionable sea
This was the conclusion that Colonel
Maxwell arriv id at half an hour after his
name was add il to the list of the guests
quartered at tl e Hyreia, which everybody
knows has an i nrivaled repute, ami well",
an unrivaled epute. The hotel is large,
roomy and cot ifortalile, and as thousands
well know is in perfect harmony with the
great, solemn sounding sea as the beat
architectural achievements one mmniifan
the world over. An admirable contrivance
to BWaUow np he individualities and ex
tra allowances of a liberal race of travelers.
The colonel h vl no sooner set foot in his
room than he w ished he had gone to Flor
ida. Just outside his door a dog snarled
at him. Dogs were his aversion. If he
had been less considerate he would have
kicked the dog .iside; instead be exclaimed
angrily, "Get oi t of my way!" anil passed
into his room. At that instant a little
child appeared in the hall. She looked at
the coronel with solemn big blue eyes
so solemn that the colonel's firm month
relaxed as he glanced at her. Then he
closexl his door 1 ith a snap.
Simultaneously a door almost opAaite,
and a trifle ajar, was Opened wide, and a
lady beckoned the child in an imperious
manner. The child obeyed the silent man
date, was drawn into the room and the
door of No. 04 closed with a bang.
Half an hour later the door of No. 03
opened, the colonel emerged, and :is In-fore a
dog the same hi encountered as he entered
his room, seemed to rise up out of the Boor in
Ills path. And n .rain, a.- before, the colonel
exclaimed, angr ly, "Get out of my way,
you nuisance!" I'pon which the dog dis
appeared dissolved into air. apparently,
as the colonel's j ttention was attracted to
the peculiar manner of the child be ob
served half an h ur earlier and who now
vainly endeavored to conceal her doll as
she walked backward, recoiling from him
shyly but surch. Again, as before, the
door of 04 opened the child darted into it
sidewise and the door closed with a signifi
The colonel's fiiendswere in the habit
of saying that it was a great pity, cou-id-ering
bow much nature had done for hhn
in the way of features, figure, complexion
and voice t hat he took so little pains to
display his admirable qualities. Bow
much reason there WM for this high esti
mate I leave the reader to judge.
When the coloi el was seated at the din
ner table he foo id himself opposite the
child that had aitraeted his attention in
the hall. He was passionately fond of
children a man who tossed up. caressed
and crowed over babies in secret. This
child's beauty WW so rare that he sat star
ing at her unwitt ugly, until her manner
recalled him to himself; then he chided
himself for discon erting her. He glanced
at the lady besii e her a brilliant bru
nette. Finely p mcQed eyebrows, suf
ficient in themsel ren to stock a beauty; a
neck that was a marvel, and the head,
how exquisitely oodeled, how fine the
lines of that head!
Meantime, theleauty flashed a glance
at the colonel. It comprehended the en
tire outer man s ic measured the inner
man two hours earlier in the day. As the
colonel intercepted the glance he actually
blushed, while tl e brunette apparently
was unaware that -she and her charge were
not the sole occupants of the table.
"Odd," thought he colonel.
Two hours latei Mrs. General Ollapod
beamed upon the brilliant brunette as she
met her with outst -etched hands.
"My dear, I have a surprise, for you. My
particular friend, C ilonel Maxwell, is here.
Now don't put me out by being Indifferent
after the times I have planned to bring you
From which it may be inferred that
whatever military genius or talent was in
the Ollapod household Mrs. Ollapod did
not share it. The I eauty smiled.
"The discouragen ents you have encoun
tered, Mrs. Ollapod, almost justifies the
opinion that Provi lence does not indorse
"Providence has nothing to do with it.
I have asked him to join my party this
evening. He is a graceful dancer such a
fine figure on the floar, and"
"You forget; I ha e not danced for a year
"You will, to pie use me, Grace; I have
set my heart on it. ly the way, the colonel
is your neighbor. ie occupies 03 in the
"That odious mai ."' The tone as well
as the manner in wh eh this was said elec
trified Mrs. General I Mlapod.
"I 1 my dear, beg your pardon,
"Mrs. Ollapod, I di i not care to tell even
you how he has oil ended me. Nothing
under heaven can ev jr induce me to add
Colonel Maxwell to my list of acquaint
ances." Mrs. General Ollai od's amazement was
Inexpressible; her m irtificatiou pathetic.
After scheming year I in the misdirected
manner in which the best of friends often
distinguish themselvi s, to encounter unex
pectedly an intangible but none the less in
surmountable obstac e, brought tears to
"I don't see any ust sniveling about ifc,'
said the general brusquely, when the bur
den of her grief was made known to that
son of Mars. "Especially after I warned
you of the colonel's aversion to widows."
Thus it happened that the hop of the sea
son was a weariness and a burden, instead
of a pleasure to Mrs. General Ollapod.
In the twenty-four ensuing hours the
colonel encountered the pretty child half a
score of times, and the child invariably re
coiled from him, until he marveled at her
conduct. Was she oue of those unfortu
nate bundles of nerves that would be
thrown into convulsions by a mouse?
But thoroughly schooled as the colonel
deemed himself, he had something to learn,
yet. By one of those rare chances one sel
dom is cognizant of outside a novel or play,
the colonel overheard a brief dialogue be
tween Mrs. General Ollapod and an un
known companion that gave him a novel
sensation. Mrs. General Ollapod was
pleading earnestly; her tone was imploring,
while her wonls shaped themselves into ex
postulations, which were suddenly cut
short by the unknown companion.
"Please don't say anything more, Mrs.
Ollapod. I beg of you to let the matter
drop. I have the best reason for the pro
found dislike 1 have expressed. I repeat. I
detest that odious man, Colonel Maxwell."
The colonel's complexion, judging from
his sensations, must have been a mixture
of saffron and coppery tints. He thought
he would choke. On the contrary, he flung
his cigar away as he turned to retrace bis
steps, when, horror of horrors! his foot
caught in an overturned chair; he made a
desperate, a gallant effort to regain his
equilibrium, but the treacherous screen
that the strong shoulder relied upon for
an instant's aid gave way, and with a crash
that ran wed innumerable unsatisfactory
surmises in ncighlxiring groups, the frail
Structure fell to the ground, exposing to
full view the proportions of Colonel Max
well to Mrs. General Ollapod aud the bril
The colonel's complexion was altogether
coppery now. The gaslight's rays for the
time being "spoke" for the trio. The coliv
nel, more by force of habit than through
exercise of the wonderful tact he was cred
ited with, Iwwed to the ladies, turned and
st n nle away.
Mrs. General Ollapod told her husband
"it was all over now," and the general,
unsynipathizing as husbands often are,
laughed boisterously on hearing the story.
"Gad I" he exclaimed as he made her re
peat it, "I'd give a month's pay to see the
picture you made."
It often happens that when mortals re
tire from a contest chance or fate inter
poses in a mysterious manner that sets
things to rights speedily.
The following day, as the colonel strolled
out leisurely on the crowded steamboat
pier that juts out into the Chesapeake, a
commotion uear at hand at t ratted his at
tention. Women shrieked and men shouted.
The brilliant beauty he desired to avoid
was pressing toward the edge frantically.
The colonel thought of the beautiful chiid
as he glanced at the water below them.
Certainly something gleamed on the top
of the huge billow that looked like the
golden tresses of a child. Whether she had
fallen or was pushed off accidentally he
did not stop to inquire. His attention for
the moment w:is given to the beauty to
whom he was so repugnant. His voice w as
as calm, his manner as self possessed as
though he was discharging an everyday
duty, as he turned to his friend.
"General, will you see to her!-"'
While the general, with equal presence
of mind, took charge of the lady, the colo
nel tossed bis hat, cane and cigar from him,
and without pausing to iloff his light coat,
took a header from the pier that was the
talk of Old Point the remainder of the sea
son. The little speck on the wave disappeared
simultaneously with the faint streak of
gray that the colonel's descent resolved it
self into as the multitude looked on with
bated breath. It all happened so quickly
that none seemed to Comprehend the truth.
There was a pressure on the landing, heads
craning over heads, as the crowd of guests
looked down upon the sea, awaiting the re
appearance of the colonel.
Meantime General Ollapod, with the
forethought and decision that marked his
Indian campaigns, hurried the widow to
ward the hotel. As they passed the crowd
men and women turned to look at her in
commiseration, until a head appeared
above the wave, when a shout arose and
the people parted and made way for the
widow and her escort. The widow gave
but one glance she looked long enough to
see that the colonel held something in his
arm then she pressed eagerly to the shore.
The colonel was a BUperb swimmer. The
guests on the shore, seeing the crowd on
the pier looking into the sea. and hearing
their shouts, took off their hats and bon
nets and waved them as they cheered the
colonel. Women cried and men blew their
noses and affected to look with indiffer
ence upon t he scene as the colonel swam
to the beach and was met by the widow
and the general.
But not until the colonel, with the state
ly manner which characterized him when
he was at his best, leaned forward and gen
tly deposited in Mrs. Oslorne's arms her
dog Fido, did that charming woman betray
the weakness of her sex. Not until poor
Fido, limp and bedraggled in a manner
bearing a marked resemblance to a worn
out dishclout or a frayed doormat, looked
Up at her piteously and shivered did she
shed tears. Then she said brokenly:
"Pear colonel, how can I repay you?"
Needless to add that the gossips had a
nine days' topic In the relations established
between the widow and the colonel after
he saved her dog. It was when the gossip
was at flood tide that Mrs. General Olla
pod, sitting beside her friend, crochet
needle in hand, one afternoon in Lent, said
"By the way, Grace, you never told me
why you called the colonel an odions
"Didn't I?" said the charming, changea
"Ixit me explain." said the colonel, who
approached them unawares. "Grace some

"Very," said Mrs. General Ollapod.
