"Left a letter?" echoed pretfcy Eva,
coming forward.
"By mistake. It was one I wrote
in an ill-advised moment. Regret.
Kindly restore it About the burglars
I just kicked some kind of a bun
dle in among the shrubbery yonder.
Maybe the burglar dropped it"
"Why, look here!" cried one of the
officers, securing the bundle and
opening it. "A fur cape, some jew
elry, some silver."
"Oh, I'm so glad!" exclaimed Mrs.
Walters. "These are the things we
most cared for."
"But the letter?" insisted the per
tinacious Eva.
"I wrote it," admitted Hoyt, with
reluctance. ,
"To whom?" challenged persistent
"To you, Miss Walters. Thank you,
sir," as Mr. Walters, unlocking the
box, extended the letter.
"No," demurred Eva, "it's mine.
See: 'Miss Eva Walters'."
"You'll you'll dislike me if you
read it!" groaned Hoyt
"How do you know that, sir?" de
manded Eva.

share in the recovery of her stolen
And when he went, Hoyt received
an answer to his letter from the sweet
lips of Eva that set his heart beating
with delirious joy.

By Paul Fuller, Jr.
(Noted Amer. International Lawyer.)
My principal reasons for believing
it is in the interest of the country
that Pres. Wilson be continued for
another term are:
1. The president has, in the face of
what some considered insurmounta
ble obstacles, carried out the prom
ises of his party as contained in the
Democratic platform. The most cur
sory study of the platform and the
legislation completed during the past
three years will show a most unusual
fulfillment of party pledges.
2. True to his education and ideals
of government, he has faithfully and
unfalteringly endeavored to interpret
the wishes of the majority of the
people of the country. Moreover,
the terribly trying experiences of the
last two years have placed him in a
position where, above all others, he
should be qualified to continue in the
management of our important antf
delicate foreign affairs.
