In many ways the campaign of 1.848, I
which resulted In the election of Zachary '
Taylor resembled the one now drawing '
to a close. Then an ex-lYesident was *|
leading a new- party just as an ex-Presi- ;
dent Is now leading a new party. Tht-n ]
the new party was launched by a bolt
- ' "'?? ? " - lUU.IUUUU, JUOl rtT! <1 ... " I
party was formed by a bolt from the '
"hjcago republican convention last sum- *
tner. Whether the similarity stops there ?
?nly the future ran tell. Will the ex- j
President today meet the same fate that '
the ex-President of 1848 met? Will the J
new party of today fare as the new 1
tarty of IMS fared? ?
There was a difference in the situation '
than as compared with now. just as there
*?r? points of similarity. The ex-President
w ho then was a candidate had been
out of office two terms instead of one. t
and had held it but for four years. He
himself had been defeated for re-elec- j
t;?n when he was the nominee of his
party to succeed himself, and in the succeeding
national convention of his party
tad been defeated by a dark horse in his c
aadidaey for a third nomination. b
The political pot began to boil early in t,
reparation for the campaign of IMS. r
The first convention of the campaign was f
that of the native Americans, held in the r
middle period of 1847. It nominated r
Henry A. S. Dearborn for Vice Presl- f
dent and recommended" < Jen. Zachary ^
Taylor for the presidency. Later in the j,
- ame year the abolitionists met and nominated
John P. Hale of N?-w Hampshire ^
and Lei ester King of Ohio. But when -j
the free s oilers nominated Martin j
Van Buren, as we shall presently see, the ?
abolitionists regarded him as "good- '
cnough-abolltlonist" for them, and Hale \
and King withdrew in his favor.

money for the closing of negotiations

DUBLIN, October 15.
The Marquis of Londonderry, one of

Impressions of conditions in Ulster. He I
recently attended the anti-home rule j
demonstration in Belfast, and says:
"My acquaintance with Ireland and j
Ulster goes beck many years. I can re-j
member the time when, as member for j
Down, I found opinion divided there as '
it is now in England. We were conservatives
and liberals, as our views on
public questions tended. No one regarded
home rule tis a subject of controversy.
"I recall that period, since its memory

the impending danger of home rule, the
differences of opinion which divided ns
have vanished. My former political opponents
are now my colleagues in this j
fight. We lunched at the Ulster Reform
Club. At one time It was the headquarters
of the liberal party in Ulster. Today
its members are as much opposed
to home rule as any conservative.
"Unanimity of opinion?that is the first !
and foremost Impression. And those who, j
like myself, can claim a long association
with Ulster know how great a change :
the home rule bill has brought about.
"There arc no faint hearts, no Mr. j

look and simple views of life.
Seriousness of Purpose.
"I was struck by a comparison of tlie
processions at tho country demonstrations
and in Belfast. Seriousness of
purpose, firm resolve on every face; but
the types entirely different.
"At Portadown I saw men who had
marched miles from the countryside to
greet their leader. They bore the stamp
of tho village and the farm. Their
dothes, their walk, their speech told of
lives spent away from the din of cities, in
ignorance of tho seamy side of politics.
Men of simple faith and deep conviction.
Kot reckless, but, having counted the cost,
ready to sacrifice all to preserve unimpaired
religious freedom and civil liberty.
The faith of their fathers meant much to
them. From father to son. from generation
to generation, the plain religious
truths had been handed down, and repeated
Sunday after Sunday in a thousand
little churches and chapels on the
hills and in the valleys. We did not
smile at the old man who carried his
Bible In the procession. It was his most
cherished possession. It was the outward
sign of what he was willing to flght
for. I^et no man underrate what It
"Not for them are the clauses of the
bill, the amendment in committee, the
niceties of language, the professions of
toleration and regard, the dialectics of
ministers. Irish history, with tho dark
pages of rebellion and massacre, is as
real to them today as it was to those who
lived through the time of disturbance.
Sight Roused Emotion.
"I could not watch?I am sure no man
could?these men tiling past and saluting
Sir Kdward Carson without emotion and
without feeling that here indeed were
men who made no decision lightly, but,
having made It, would uphold it whatever
the cost.
"From the countryside to Belfast?how
great the change and yet no change at
u.11! The type had altered, but the same
resolve was there: 'No home rule.' In
Belfast every phase of the controversy
1s known. The wrigglings of ministers,
the professions of home rulers, the provisions
of the bills, its realities, are read
and understood. A Belfast audience responds
to the slightest touch. A happy
phrase, an appropriate epithet, a skillful
reference?and a roar of applause follows.
And yet among these hard-headed
workers there is room for sentiment.
Liver the audience at the Ulster Hall
there swept a wave of emotion as the
old Hag was produced which was carried
before King William over two hundred
years ago at the battle of the Boyne.
"Later I watched the great crowd
waiting for the city hall to open. There
the covenant was to besigned, and as
the doors swung back, again without
jostling or noise, the head of the long
tiueue passed In and there began the
continuous procession of Ulster men
which only ceased for that day with the
closing of the hall as midnight struck.
From Every Walk of Life.
"I watched them streaming in?men in
every walk of life?and if I had been
a stranger I should have marveled at
the sight. J leit that no man was signing
the covenant who did not mean to
keep it, who did not understand what it
meant, and 1 felt, too, that home rule
was lifted out of the arena of political
controversy Into that higher and more
serious plane of great questions which before
now have Involved nations in war.
"Grave, indeed, will be the error of the
government if they affect to believe that
Ulster opposition to home rule is but the
attitude of political opponents to the
measure of a government. It is not. It
is the uprising of a community. Of
course, misrepresentation is easy. In
these days, when political opposition is
not pressed to its conclusion, resolution
and determination are uncommon quantities.

CHAPTER VIII.?Continued.
Whether this last 'was meant as a slur
on Harriet or a compliment to Martin
Luther Betty never discovered, for at
this moment the lune.heon came to an
end with a murmur of talk as to afternoon
plans. The countess, having flashed
her fascinations on young Baxter, now
carried him off with a suggestion of cigarettes.
Mrs. Baxter proposed a drive and
offered to drop the Merles at St. Timothy's.
which offer Harriet accepted for
herself alone, explaining that the walk
would do Horatio good and would allow
him to continue his oratorical meditations
uninterrupted. This proved to be an unfortunate
Betty returned to her work in the library,
where she was glad to be alone,
away from the chatter and the trivialities,
alone with her thoughts; yet not
alone, for every corner of this great room
seemed alive with memories of the morning,
memories of him. What a very great
difference a few hours had made! How
extraordinary that this vigorous young
American, whom she had not seen for
years, should have suddenly?without Intending
to do It, without dreaming that
he had done it?should have?well, what
had he done? What was the truth about
her feeling for this playmate of her childhood,
Bob Baxter?
Does a woman ever admit, even to
herself, that a man has won her heart
ilntil she has good reason to belike that
she has won his? Does a pretty woman,
a young and charming woman, ever admit
such a thing? Probably not, and
Betty was no exception to this rule of
feminine reserve. But there were two
significant indications in her thoughts,
one that she did not in the least enjoy
the Countess Kate's flirtatious tendencies
with Bob, and the other a decision
that now she could not break her incognito,
even if she would. Her pride
forbade it. To let Bob know that she
was his old friend. Betty Thompson,
would be a confession of weakness, as if
she admitted that she was not charming
or pretty enough to attract him simply
as Miss Thompson. No, decidedly she
would not tell him.
Betty had just arrived at this selfrespecting
conclusion when there came
a step outside and the curate entered.
"I beg your pardon," he began, timidly.
"I am the Rev. Horatio Merle, one of
the relatives. I believe you are Miss
Thompson, the new secretary?"
"Yes." said Betty.
Horatio consulted his watch and paused,
as if making an arithmetical calculation.
"Bet me see. the bazaar opens at halfpast
3. My watch says Ave minutes past
3, which means that it is really a quarter-past
2. I like to keep my watch fiftyfive
minutes ahead of time, Miss Thompson."
he explained, with a bright smile.
"Why not an hour ahead?" she laughed.
"No, no! An hour would be too much.
Fifty-five minutes gives me exactly time
to dress and shave and?I beg your pardon
for going into these details. The
point is I had just started for the bazaar?you
see, I like to go leisurely?and
I was passing the lodge when I met a
young woman, a fellow-countrywoman
of yours?my wife mentioned to me. Miss
Thompson, that you are an American?"
"Yes, I'm an American."
"Ah! Very fortunate! Extremely fortunate!"
He stood twisting his long fingers
together in great satisfaction. "The
young woman I speak of is also an American,
a most deserving person, but?er?
she has met with reverses, and?er?Mrs.
Baxter has b^en kind enough to let her
stay at the lodge and do what she can
"I see," nodded the girl.
"Her name Is Hester Storm, and, as
she naturally feels lonely here, being an
American, I thought that you would
speak to her and?er?perhaps encourage
i. ot? >
ner .
"Of course. I would."
"I may add that Miss Storm rendered
me an important service the other day
when I was sore beset in?er?I'll explain
that later on. She is outside now, in fact,
she seems anxious to meet you and?er?
may I?"
"Certainly," said Betty, with cordial
sympathy and, following the curate toward
the conservatory, she made out the
figure of a woman in a red cloak, a
strangely familiar red cloak, sharply contrasted
against the foliage, and as the
woman turned and cafne forward Betty
saw, with a start of recognition, that it
was her companion on the train, Jenny
"This is the young woman?Miss Hester
Storm," said the curate.
"Miss Hester Storm?" repeated Betty,
in surprise, while the other threw her a
beseeching glance for silence.
"Yes. An interesting name, is it not?"
chattered Merle, quite oblivious to the
rapid pantomime that was passing between
the two women. "She has been
traveling with a Russian princess, but
the princess drank?it was very unfortunate.
and?Hester will tell you about it?
won't you, my dear?"
"I'll tell her all about it." answered
the dark-eyed girl, and she managed,
with the pleading of her eyes, to give the
words a double meaning.
This being arranged, Horatio took a
hurried departure, announcing that he
must have time to compose his mind before
the Progressive Mothers' addretts.
"Well?" questioned Betty, when the
two w.omen were alone.
"Don't blame me, Miss Thompson, until
you've heard what I have to say," begged
"He called you Hester Storm."
"I know, but "
"Your name is Jenny Regan?isn't it?"
"Please let me speak. I couldn't give
my real name?after what happened on
the train. It's been printed in the papers,
and?don't you see, nobody here
would have trusted me? it s terrible -to 1
he suspected of a thing: when ? when
you're innocent."
Betty pondered this. "I suppose that
is true," she agreed, and Hester breathed
more easily. At least she was to have a
chance to tell her story, some story, and
her inventive faculties had never failed
her yet. It was a pity if she couldn't
cook up a tale that would satisfy this
rich girl's curiosity without arousing her
''You want to know how I happen to
be here?" anticipated Hester.
Betty admitted that she would like to
know this, and straightway the other began
lier extemporization, the general
lines of which, it must be said, had been
planned in advance, for she realized that
her benefactress was no fool. It was
simply a plausible continuation of her
liard-luck story as outlined on the train,
with a vivid insistence on the shock she
had suffered through being unjustly suspected.
This was the last straw and it
had broken her spirit. No one would believe
in her or help her, and she hadn't
the courage to struggle any longer. She
didn't care what happened to her, she
didn't want to live and?just as she was
in this wicked spirit, she had thought of
Betty, and it had seemed as if she heard
a voice telling tier to go to tills gentle
lady who had befriended her and?trusted
her and
At tilts point, as Hester was working
up to an effective climax of sighs and
tears. Parker entered and addressed
Betty in his most haughty manner.
"Mr. Robert Baxter gave me these 'ere
letters. He said I was to give 'em to the
new secretary."
"Very well," said Betty, and she took
the papers, while the dark girl stared in
amazement. The tables were suddenly
"The new secretary?" questioned Hester,
when the butler had gone. "He
called you the new secretary ?" Her
eyes were on Betty steadily now, and
they were now no longer pleading, submissive
eyes, but had suddenly become
hard and suspicious.
"Why?er?I can explain that," Betty
Hester nodded shrewdly. "It'll take a
lot of explaining, if you ask me. On the
level, are you a lady or?what?"

"It's a?a sort of a joke."
"A joke? You pound that typewriter?

"Why?er?I do It to help Mr. Baxter."
Hester studied Betty silently, then. In
a cold, even tone, "Saj-. lady, you'll have

Hester turned away and walked toward
the conservatory. She must think. After
all It was none of lier business why
Elizabeth Thompson was doing Baxter's
secretary work. Hester was at Ipping
House for the golf bag and for nothing
else, and straightway she returned to
her original plan of propitiating Miss
Thompson and thus establishing herself
in the Baxter household.
"All right, lady," she said, softening
her tone. "I'll take your word for it,
hut?if you've had troubles yourself you
know how I feel and?all I ask is a
chance to work and?make a living."
"What kind of work can you do?"
"Sewing, all kinds of sewing and?T can
trim hats. I make all my own things. I
made this dress and this cloak."
"Really! I think your cloak is very
smart." and Hester reflected that it
might well be, seeing that she hart paid
uOO francs for it on the Rue de la l'aix.
"I suppose I could recommend you to
Mrs. Baxter and the other ladies," hesitated
Betty, "for sewing and mending,
only?there's our meeting on the trainit's
very awkward."
"Why is it? We don't have to tell
them about the train, do we? I'm here,
anyway. Tho Rev. Merle got me here.
All I ask you to do is to let mo fix over
some dresses and shirt waists."
"Very well." decided the secretary.
"I'll do that."
"Say, will you let me begin right away?
Will you? So I can satisfy that she

Hester nodded, with expressive pantomime
indicating the nature of the dragon, j
"If that old thing knows I'm sewing for j
the ladies here she ll let up on the scrub- j
bing talk. Why should I scrub when I

This sounded reasonable and Betty began
to feel that she had been not quite
kind to Hester.
"It's a good time now," she said, with
increasing friendliness. "I've nearly finished
this work and, if you don't mind
going to my room, we'll see what we can

joy. Was there ever anything as easy

But she simply answered with a grateful,
innocent look, "I'll be glad to go."
So they climbed the winding stair, Hester
thrilling with expectation. She had
no doubt the bishop's purse was still in
the golf bag's depths where she had
dropped it, and the golf bag itself was
probably in this very room where they
were going; or, if not there, it must be
knocking about in some odd corner or
dusty closet, where she would quickly
find it, now that she had the run of the
house, and, having found it
"Oh!" she cried, suddenly, and stopped
short at the open door, unable to speak
or to move, for there, in plainest sight,
resting against a tall chest of drawers,
j was the coveted object, the treasureholding
golf bag.
"What Is it?" asked Betty.
"Nothing, lady. I?I was a little out
of breath," stammered the girl, recovering
herself quickly. Here was her golden
opportunity and she must not spoil it by
any queer behavior.
And now Hester's luck attended her,
j for not only was Betty quite oblivious to
her protege's agitation, but, after some
perfunctory wardrobe investigation, she
remembered, with misgivings, those letters
that Bob had sent to be copied, and
she fell in readily with an artful suggestion
that the sewing girl be left here in
the chamber to repair a torn skirt while
Betty descended to her duties in the library.
It really was too ease!
As soon as she was alone Hester moved
swiftly toward the golf bag, then paused
and glanced cautiously about her. Every
moment was precious, but she must make
no mistakes. A chance like this wouldn't
j come twice to a girl and?what was that?
She listened intently, afraid of her
own breathing. Silence! It must have
been a creaking timber. Absolute silence!
All, there was the typewriter
clicking! A good thing Miss Thompson
had left the little door ajar! She could
hear any slightest sound from the library,
any step on the stair.
Very carefully Hester lifted the golf
bag by Its supporting strap. She remembered
how the clubs had rattled that day
t.. alotlAn T1ir.tr rotllo/1
114 V - ilCLX'AIi g Vyl UOO oianuii. J. Jit* laiuw
a little now. Should she take them out
or try to reach down into the hag? Better
see where the purse was first. No,
she couldn't sec. There were too many
clubs?packed in close together and ? it
was all dark?down at the bottom. Perhaps
she could see better by the window,
or?ah! the electric light! There by the
dressing table! She could hold the bag
right under it.
A moment later, with a smothered
click, the lamp gave forth its yellow
glare, and. quivering with excitement,
Hester looked down among the clubs.
One glance was enough. There at the
very bottom, nestling comfortably between
a niblick and a cleek, lay the fat
brown purse, held tight in its elastic
baud, the bishop's purse, with its incredible
hoard of banknotes. The thing was
done! The trick was turned! She had
only to lay the bag softly on Betty's bed
?there, and reach her arm in and?what
was that?
With a swift, instinctive movement
Hester stood the golf bag back in its
corner, then turned slowly, and. as lier
f eyes swept the mirror, she saw that she
was deathly pale. What was that creaking
noise? A step? She strained her
ears, but there was no sound save the
steady typewriter murmur from below.
Then, still looking in the mirror, she
gazed, fascinated, at a door on the farther
side of the chamber, not the door
to the library stair, but another door, a
green door, and, as she looked, this door
opened slightly and she saw distinctly
the reflection of a man's face, a man
with a slightly twisted nose and a shock
of black hair. He was standing there
in the green door staring at her, and it
seemed to Hester that she had seen this
man somewhere before.

University Professor Gives Kules for
Avoiding Unnecessary Idleness.

ward Lee Thorndike, head of the department
of psychology at Columbia University,
has prepared a set of ten rules
which he says will enable any one to get
along without vacations, which he regards
as an unnecessary luxury. "During
no waking moment," he says, "is
there any legitimate excuse for idleness
on the part of the mind. Instead of a
rest or vacation, the mind should be
given new work. No one should rest an
instant save when sound asleep. The
more the mind does the more it can do.
My ten rules for being able to work all
the time are as follows:
"Sleep all thg.t is possible. Get rid of
all physical ills. When one interest flags
find a new one. Always keep on
hand a supply of motives or desires.
Never learn by a roundabout method
what can be learned directly. Never allow
the mind to dwell on a subject that
may not be useful. Waste no effort.
Never worry. Never become excited unnecessarily.
Think out what should be

Peter allowed that It wasn't, hut that
as he had so much on his own mind he
couldn't help being interested when he
found that Sticky-toes had troubles, too.
Then he told Sticky-toes all about how
Boomer the Nighthawk had said that
he had seen Sammy Jay going to bed
way up in the far away Old Pasture on
the edge of the mountain, and how that
very night Samra.v Jay's voice had been
heard screaming down in the alders beside
the I^aughing Brook. Sticky-toes
nodded his head.
"I heard it," said he. .
4'But how could Sammy Jay be down
here if he went to bed way off there in
the Old Pasture? Tell me that. Stickytoes?"
said Peter Rabbit.
Sticky-toes shook his head. "Don't ask
me! Don't ask me! Just tell me howIt
is that I hear my own voice when I
don't speak a word?" said Sticky-toes
the Tree Toad.
"What's that?" exclaimed Peter Rabbit.
Peter Rabbit, hunting through the Green
Forest for Sammy Jay. just happened
across Sticky-toes, the Tree Toad, mumbling
and grumbling to himself. He
didn't see Peter and Peter did what he
shouldn't have done?he stoped to listen
to what Sticky-toes was saying. Stickytoes
was quite up-set. There was no
doubt about it. Kither he had got out
of the wrong side of his bed that morn
ing, or his breakfast had disagreed with
him, or something had happened to make
him lose his temper completely.
"Don't know what it means! Don't
know what it means! Don't know what
it means!" croaked Sticky-toes, the Tree
Toad, over and over again. "Heard it
last night and the night before that and
before that and before that and before
that, and I don't know what it means!"
"Don't know what what means?"
asked Peter Rabbit, whose curiosity
would not let him keep still.
"Hello, Longears! I don't know that
it's any of your business!" said Sticktoes.
Then Sticky-toes poured out all his
troubles to Peter Rabbit. They were
very much like the troubles of Sammy
Jay. Every night Sticky-toes would hear
what sounded like his own voice coming :
from a tree in which v- was not sitting
at all. and at a time when he was keeping
his mouth shut as tight as he knew j
how. In fact, he had been so worried j
that for several nights he hadn't said a ;
word, yet his neighbors had complained j
that lie had been very noisy. He was :
getting so worried that he couldn't eat.
Peter Rabbit just listened, with his
mouth wide open. It was just the same
kind of a story that Sammy Jay had
told. What under the sun could be going
on? Peter couldn't understand it at all.
It certainly was very, very curious. He
just must find out about it.

Seven Charges Uncovered Under j
Tracks in Middletown, Mass.
MIDDLETOWN, Mass.. October 28.?
State authorities are investigating the
finding of unexploded dynamite under the
Bay State street railway car tracks between
this town and Lawrence. Seven

All cars on tlie line are being stopped
at a point a quarter of a mile from
where the explosive was found. Con- ,
siderable difficulty is being: experienced
in getting men to conduct the search for
more of the dynamite because of the
danger of an explosion while digging.
The dynamite unearthed is believed to :
be a part of a quantity left twelve years
ago, when workmen repaired the road
and laid car tracks. An explosion at [
that time caused the death of one man
and injury to thirty others.
