free silver at 10 to 1 is no', less Impor
tant now than In 18l>0. It teems that
when Bryan declared for free coinage
ho meant It. That is uncommon among
politicians. Among tho American peo
ple Mr. Bryan is making a place as a
man who stands for a prino'plo. Cal
houn, Webster, llayno and Jackson,
when they died left names ns-oeiat'-d
with principles. When one thinks of
state's rights, ono thinks of Calhoun.
Calhouu's causo failed. When Bryan is
dead, his famo promises to last. In the
future when ono thinks of free silver
Bryan's name will como to mied. Bryan
Is au earnest, sincoro man. It happens
that we are of those who regard bim ns
the aposllo of an error. Tho American
peopl'3 have repudiated Ms views und
n.oro and more a-o repudiating them.
Nevertheless, in the end they must re
spect Bryan; for lie has been no trillor,
no trimmer, no mere bidder foe offioe.
Tho life of any great, str?ng mm
wholly given to battling for the truth
as he sees it is useful to the republic.
It is au inspiration. In his Bisbop
villo speech last week, our Senator Till
man is reported to have said that the
free silver issue must be temporarily
laid asldo. Ho declared himself as Ilrtn
a believer In silver as ever. The Sena
tor knows that ho is wh'ppcd. The
Senator is not a Bryau. Tho Sanator
says that Mr. Bryan Is talking too
much. Por all prac.ical purposes, Ohl
Senator is now as good a ''gold but;"
as Mr. Cleveland is. He has laid down
his arms. II i has purronderod. Be
has abandoned Bryan. His view3 re
main unchanged but he is not lighting
for thom. The gold democrats could
ask no groater fuvor of a loader of the
opposition than that ho retire from
the fight. Pleasantly, Senator Till
man alludes to Judgi Purker as a
prosldeutal candidate. Parker is a
New York gold bug. While he will
not cease to denounce tho gold demo
crats, tho Senator is today their of
feotlveally. Ho will bo of great value to
them In the South in next year's cam
paign. Senator Tillraun is ono of the
most astute politicians in Amorica. lie
is a man of extraordinary ability. One
of tho strongest, perhaps tho strong
est, features in his gamu is tho adrok
nes3 with which he ''follows the
crowd." Ho Is shrewd enough always
to convince the biggest part of the
crowd in South Carolina that they are
following him. Tho Senator does not
play for the greatest stakes. His name
will nover be associated in history with
a tremendous f<r-reaching prlr.clple
of morals or policy. lie will have no
placo In history.such as Bryan w.11 have
' ills 6takes nro tho senatorshlp from
South Carolina and the political boss
domofaitato machine. No man could
play it better than he does. No man
could better i'lintratc largo talents in
a small way. He is to South Carolina
what Platt is to New York; Quay to
Pennsylvania. With dilTeroDt cards,
under dilTorent conditions, they play
with equal success and win the same
rewards. Twenty odd years ago Platt
was the "me too" of Conkling. Conk
ling was a brilliant statesman, asser
tive, impetuous and unbending. Platt
was a pigmy by bis sido. Both went
down in defeat. Tho mighty Conk
ling, overthrown, could not rise again.
Tho littlo P.att in a fo* years was
boss in New York. But Congling doad
is remembered as ono of the tall figures
of his goneration. In tho traditions of
tho Senate and of his sti*to, his fame is
safo. When Platt dies, ho will have a
successor. In South Carolina, Tin
man will always bo a winner?uuless a
keener politician, a more adroit shuf
Mor, a smartor talker better suited to
tho times is produced. This is not
likely. Nevoithcless, Senator Tlllman
will one day pass from tho s'ago an
uuKatl8lied man. Ho will know that ho
has been, after all, a failure. His must
be the consciousness that bo cannot
walk in tho campanionship of the
roally groat. Bittnerne s will ba ad
ded by tho knowledgo that his short
comings havo not been duo to want of
intelloct. If ho had been capsule of
sacrifice?, if ho could have concoived
at any ttmo tho high ambition to abido

She felt, however, that the two great
questions, tho marriage of herself to
Louis, and Brnndon to any other p >r
son, wen?, ns sin- tailed It, "settled."
and was almost content to endure this
as a mere putting off <>f her desires, a
meddlesome and Impertinent Interfer
ence of the fates, who would soon
learn with whom they were dealing
and amend their conduct.
She did not understand the conse
quences for Brnndon, nor that the fates

On the second morning after leaving
Bristol Brandon reached London and,
r\s he expected, was sent to the Tower.
The next evening Lady Mary arrived
and was taken down to Greenwich.
The girl's fair name was of course
lost, but, fortunately, that goes for lit
tle with a princess?since no one would
believe that Brandon had protected her
against himself ns valiantly and honor
nhly ns he would against another. The
princess being much more unsophisti
cated than the courtiers were ready to
believe never thought of saying any
thing to establish her Innocence or vir
tue, and her silence was put down to
shame and taken ns evidence against
.Inno met Mary at Windsor, and of
course there was n great Hood of tears.
Upon arriving at the palace the girls
were left to themselves, upon Mary's
promise not to leave her room, but by
tho next afternoon she, having been
unable to learn anything concerning
Brandon, broke her parole and went
OUt to see the king.
It never occurred to Mary that Bran
don might suffer death for attempting
to run away with her. She knew only
too well that she alone was to blame,
not only for that but for all that had
taken place between them, and never
for one moment thought that he might
bo punished for her fault, even admit
ting there was fault in any one, which
she was by no means ready to do.
The trouble In her mind growing out
of a lack of news from Brandon was of
a general nature, and the possibility of
his death had no place in her thoughts.
Nevertheless for the second time Bran
don had been condemned to die for her
sake. The king's seal had stamped
the warrant for the execution and the
headsman had sharpened his ax and
could almost count the golden fee for
Mary found the king playing cards
with De Longuovllle. There was a
roomful of courtiers, nml as she en
tered sho was the target for every
eye, but she was on familiar ground
now and did not care for the glances
nor the observers, most of whom she
despised. She was the princess again
and full of self confidence, so she went
straight to the object of her visit, the
king. She had not made up her mind
just what to say first, there was so
much, but Henry saved her the trou
ble. Ho, of course, was in a great rage
and denounced Mary's conduct as un
natural and treasonable, the latter, in
Henry's mind, being a crime many
times greater than the breaking of all
the commandments put together in one
fell, composite act. All this the king
had communicated to Mary by the lips
of Wolsey the evening before, and
Mary had received It with a silent
scorn that would have withered any
one but the worthy bishop of York. As
I said, when Mary approached her
brother he saved her the trouble of de
ciding where to begin by speaking first
himself, and his words were of a part
with his nature, violent, cruel and vul
gar, lie abused her and called her all
tho vile names in his ample vocabu
lary of billingsgate. The queen was
present and aided nml abetted with a
word now and then, until Henry, with
her help, at last succeeded In working
himself into a towering passion and
wound up by calling Mary a vile wan
ton in plainer terms than I like to
write. This aroused all tho antago
nism In lite girl, and I hero was plenty
of it. She feared IJenry no more than
sho feared me, Her eyes Hashed a lire
that made even tho king draw back
ns sho exclaimed: "You give me that
name and expect mo to remember you
are my brother? There aro words that
make a mother hate her firstborn, and
that is one. Toll mo what I have done
to deserve It? I expected to hear of in
gratitude and disobedience and all that,
but supposed you had at least some
traces of brotherly fooling?for ties of
blood are hard to break- even if you
have of late lost all noinbhinee to man
This was hitting Henry hard, for It
w.-j.s beginning to bo the talk In every
mouth (hut he was leaving all the af
fairs' of Hl;?to to Wolsey and spending
his time in puorile nmusemeiit. "Tho
toward ftopo which at all poyntos ap
peared in ihe youngo Kyngo" was be
ginning to look, after all, like nothing
uioro than tho old tlino royal cold lire,
made to consume but not to warm the
Henry looked at Mary with tho stnro
of a baited bull.
"If running off in male nttlro and
stopping at inns and boarding ships
with a common captain of tho guard
doesn't Jiutlfy my accusation and
stamp you what you nro, I do not
know what would."
Even Henry saw her innocenco in her
genuine surprise, sho was silent for n
little time, and I, standing closo to her,
could plainly see that this phase of tho
question had nover before presented It
Sho hung her head for a moment und
then spoke: "It may bo true, ns you
say, that what I havo done will lose
mo my fair name?I had never thought
Of it In that light?but it Is also true
that I am Innocent, and havo done no
wrong. You may not bollovo me, but
you can ask Master Brandon"- here
the king gave a great laugh, and of
courlo tho couriicis joined In.
"It Is all very WOll for you (o laugh,
but Master Brandon would not.tell you
u He for your crown." (.Jods! I could
have lullen oil my knees to u faith like
Hint. "What I tell you Is true. I trust
ed him so completely that the fear of
dishonor at his hands never suggested
itself |t, me. I knew he would care for
und rospcel me. 1 trusted him. and my
trust w as not misplaced. Ol' how many
of these creatures who laugh when the
klug laughs could I say as lnuehV"
And Henry knew she spoke the truth,
both concerning herself and the court
With downcast eyes sho continued:
"1 suppose, iif(or till, y<'u are partly
right in regard to me. for tt .as his
honor that saved nie, no! luy own, nnd
if I am not what you culled mo l have
Master Brandon to thank not myself."
"We will thank him publicly oil Tow
er hill day utter tomorrow at noon."
said the king, with his accustomed del
icacy, breaking the news of Brandon's
sentence as abruptly as possible.
With a look of (error in her eyes
Mary screamed: "What! Charles Bran
don?Tower hill?? You are going to
"I think wo will," responded Henry.
"It usually has that effect, to separate
the head from tho body and quarter
the remains to decorate the four nates.
We will take you up to London In a
day or two and let you sec his beauti
ful head on tho bridge."
"Bohoad?quarter- bridge! Lord Je
su!*' She could not gl'iisp the thought."
She tried to speak, hut the words
would not come. In a moment she be
came more coherent, and the words
rolled from her lips as a mighty Mood
tide pours hack through the arches of
"Von shall not kill him. lb' is hi .no
less. You do not know. Drive . ose
gawking fools out of the room, and I
will toll you all." The king ordered
tho room cleared of everybody but
Wolsoy, Juno and myself, who re
mained at Mary's request. When all
wort? gone, the princess continued:
"Brother, this man is in no way to
blame. It Is all my fault--my fault
that ho loves mo, my fault that ho tried
to run away to New Spain with me. It
may be that I have done wrong und
that my conduct has been iinmnldonly,
but I could not help it. From the first
time I ever saw him in the lists wilh
you at Windsor there was a gnawing
hunger in my hear I beyond my control.
I supposed of course that day he would
eon I rive some way to be presented to
"Ves, hut ho made no effort at nil,
and when we met ho treated mo as if I
wore an ordinary girl."
Mary was too Intent on her story to
hood the sarcasm, nnd continued: "Thai
made me all tho moro Interested In
him, since It showed that ho was dif
ferent from tho wretches who beset
you und mo wilh their flnttory, and I
soon begun to seek him on every occa
sion. This is an linmaidciily history 1
am giving, I know, but it is tho truth
and must be told. I was Satisfied at
first If 1 could only be in the same
room with him and see his face and
hear his voice. Tho very air ho breath
ed was like an elixir for nie. I made
every excuse to have hhn near mo. I
asked him to my poiior?you know
about (hat?and and did all I could to
bo with him. At first ho was gentle
and kind, hot soon, I think, ho saw the
dawning danger In both our hearts, as
I, too, saw it, and he avoid* d me In
every way ho could, knowing the trou
ble it held for US both. Oh, ho was the
wiser! And to think to what I have
brought him. Brother, lot mo die for
him I wiio alone am to blame. Take
my life and spare him spare him! lie
was the wiser, but I doubt if all the
wisdom in the world could have saved
us. He almost Insulted mo once hi the
park -told mo to leave -when It hurt
him moro than mo, I am now sure, but
ho did it to keep matters from growing
worse between us. I tried to remember
the affront, hut could not, and had he
struck mo I believe I should have gone
back to him sooner or later. Oh, It was
all my fault! I would not lei him save
himself. So strong was my feeling that
I could boar his silence no longer, and
ono day I went to him in your bed
chamber anteroom and fairly thrust
myself and my lovo upon him. Then,
after he was liberated from Newgate,
I could not induce him to come to mo,
so I went to him and bogged for his
lovo. Then I coaxed him Into taking
me to .New Spain and would listen to
no excuse and hear no reason. Now
lives there another iniin who would
have taken so much coaxing?"
"No, by heaven, your majesty!" said
Wolsoy, Who really had a kindly fool
ing for Brandon and would gladly save
his lifo It by BO doing he would not In
terfere with any of his own plans and
Interests. Wolsoy'fl hcnrt wms naturally
kind when it cost him nothing, nnd
much 1ms been related of him which,
to say the least, tolls a groat deal more
than tho truth. Ingratitude nlways re
colls upon the lugrnto, und Henry's loss
was greater than Wolsoy's when Wol
Henry really liked or, rather, ad
mired Brandon, us had often boon
shown, but his nature was Incapable
of real affection. Tho highest point he
ever reached was admiration, often
miMo extravagant for n time, but usu
ally short lived, as naked admiration is
apt to bo. If he had affection for any
one, It was for Mary. Ho could not but
800 tin- Justice of bis sister's position,
but ho had no Intention of allowing
justice in tho Reuse of right to Interfere
with Justice in the sense of tho king's

throat, and by your own story have led

et of evils for one woman to open. But
I have noticed that tho troublo a wo
man can make Is In proportion to her
bonuty, and no wonder my little sister
has made so much .disturbance, it is
strange, though, that ho should so af
fect you. Master Wolsoy, surely there
lins beeil witchery here, He must have
used j) nbundantiy to casi mich a spei:
over nr. nil u r." Then turning to the
prlhfes^ "Was it at any time possible
for MUpio havo given you a lovo pow- |
dor. or did ho ever make any signs or
passes over you?"
"Oh, no; nothing of Hint sort. I nev
er nto or drank anything which he
could possibly have touched. And as to
BlgUS and passes, I know he never
made any. Sir Edwin, you were al
ways present when I wns with him un
til after wo left for Bristol. Did you
ever see anything of the sort?"
I answered "No," and she went on:
"Besides, I do not believe much In
signs and passes. No ono COU affect
others unless he can Induce them to
eat or drink something In which he has
placed a love powder or potion. Then,
ngain, Master Brandon did not want
IUO to love him, and surely would not
havo used such a method to gain what
ho could have had freely without it."
I noticed that Henry's mind had wan
dered from what Mary was saying and
that his eyes wen? fixed niton me with
a thoughtful, half vicious, Inquiring
staro that I did not like. I wondered
what was coming next, hut my curios
ily was more than satislled when tho
king asked, "So Cnskoden was present
at all your Interviews?"
Ah! Holy Mother! I knew what was
coming now nud actualist began to
shrivel with fright. The king contin
ued, "I suppose he helped you to es
I thought my day had come, but
Mary's wit was equal to the occasion.
Willi an expression on her face of the
most dovelike Innocence she quickly
"Oh, no! Neither he nor Jane knew
any thing of it. Wo were afraid they
might divulge it."
Shade of Sapphlra!
A lie Is a pretty good thing, too, now
and then, and the man who says that
word of Mary's was not a blessed lie
must light me with lance, battleax,
sword and dagger till one or the other
of us bites the dust in death, he he
gieat or small.
"I am glad to learn that you knew
nothing of it," snkl Henry, addressing
mo, and I was glad, too, for him to
learn it, you may he sure.
Then spoke Wolsey: "If your majesty
Will permit I would say that I quite
agree with you; there has been witch
ery hero?-witchery of the most potent
kind; the witchery of lustrous eyes, of
fair skin and rosy lips; the witchery of
all that Is sweet and Intoxicating in
womanhood, hut Master Brandon has
been tho victim of this potent spell, not
the user of it. One look upon your sis
ter standing there, and I know your
majesty will agree that Brandon had
no choice against her."
"Perhaps you are right," returned
Then spoko Mary, all unconscious of
her girlish egotism: "Of course he had
not. Master Brandon could not help
it"- which was true beyond all doubt.
Henry laughed at her naivete, nnd
Wolsey's lips wore a smile ns he
plucked the king by the sleeve nnd
took hi in over to the window, out of
Mary began lo weep and show signs
of increasing agitation.
After a short whispered conversation
the king and Wolsey came back, and
the former said, "Sister, if I promise to
give Brandon his life will you consent
decently and like a good girl to marry
I,oiiis of Prance?"
Mary almost screamed: "Yes, yes;
gladly. I will do anything you ask,"
and fell at his feet, hysterically em
bracing his knees.
As the king stooped nnd lifted her to
her feet he kissed her. saying, "Ills life
shall be spared, my sweet sister." Aft
er this Henry felt that he had done o
wonderfully gracious act and was the
kindest hearted prince in all Christen

Jane nnd I led Mary away through a
side door, nnd the king called for Do

game of curds.
Before tho piny was resumed Wolsey
Stepped softly around to the king nnd
asked, "Shall I affix your mnjesly's seal
to Brandon's pardon?'1
"Yes, but keep him In the Tower un

A Doctor's Reasons
Patient: "Why do you say Schlitz, beer?
Isn't any other beer as good?"
Doctor: "Perhaps; but I don't know it. I
do know that Schlitz beer is pure."
Patient: "What do you mean by pure?"
Doctor: "I mean free from germs. Impurity
means bacilli; and in a saccharine product like beer
bacilli multiply rapidly. I do not recommend
a beer that may contain them."
Patient: "How do you know that Schiit/, beer
Doctor: "I have seen it brewed. Cleanliness
is carried to extremes in that brewery. The beer
is cooled in plate glass rooms, in filtered air.
The beer is then filtered. Yet, after all these
precautions, every bottle is sterilized?by Pasteur's
process?after it is scaled. I know that beer
treated in that way is pure."
Patient: "And is pure beer good for me?"
Doctor: "It is good for anybody. The hops
1 rm a tonic; the bailey a food. The trifle of
alcohol is an aid to digestion. And the custom
of drinking beer supplies the body with fluid to
wash out the waste. People who don't drink
beer seldom drink enough fluid of any kind. A
great deal of ill-health is caused by the lack of it."
Patient: "But doesn't beer cause biliousness?"
Doctor: "Not Schlitz Beer. Biliousness is
caused by 'green' beer?beer tnat is insufficiently
aged. But Schiit/, beer is always aged for months
before it is marketed."
