In the large audience which listened
with rapt attentlon.to Belen Adams Kel
ler yesterday In Congress Hall, as she
suggested, methods for the betterment of
those similarly afflicted, sat a iittle girl
whose happiness was stamped on ccry
line of her tender face.
Like Helen -Keller, she was blind and
deaf, and if the Eastern Girl, who has
startled two continents with her prodi
gious learning, has accomplished a. gieat
aim, this little, girl. too. who halls from
Colorado Springs.. Colo.., has obtained the
fondest wish of her life.
For more than seven years, Charlotte
Sullivan, one of a large family of chil
dren, whose parents live in Colorado
Spring, and. who are well-to-do, has
sought to master enough of the Baglirii
tongue to enable her to understand the
meaning crl the1 -religious truths of the
Her case wsEs particularly pathetic. As
with the great number of the deaf and
dumb, it is practically, impossible to In
struct them, sot only in religion, bat in
other great truths, and tien be positive
ly certain that, their comprehension f
the facts is correct.
Monday morning, however, the S3ters
of Et. Joseph, who have hadf the girl in
their charge ior the last two masts?, at.
their deaf and dumb academy, at "o.
MB Cass avenue, permitted her to re
ceive the sacrament of 'the Holy Euchar
ist. In signs, the girl had often asked-
lier devout tutors how jnoch larger she
would have to wait cctM she would be
permitted-toapproach'the acramesr. Her

taken on several resolutions referring to
the i.jbject which were presented- The

better than the normal 4,000 majority In
Monroe County, and than the 1,C0 Jn

and of Ita'large percentage of Republic

In such friendly territory the welcome
accorded the Democratic nominees at to
day's'Jstops, easily can be imagined.,
At Monroe Cltv thlfl mnrnini. and af
Clarenqe, Inline western end of Shelby
County,' this afternoon, splendid audiences
had assembled. Specially Interesting, and
jet not-far from trplcal, was the greet
ing received by Folk after his Monroe
City Spflech, from Madison Payne" one
of the oldest Democrats of Marlon
"I am glad to shake you by the hand,"
said the old farmer, in trembling voice.
That was all he said. It remained for S.
J. Harrison, who knows the old man well,
to complete his sjory. He Iles on the
north line of Marlon, thlrtv mi! frnm
Monroe County. He had goten up at 3 In
the morning, harnessed his team, driven
for six long hours, that he might meet
Mr. Folk, and this stprling farmer has
turned" his eighty-fourth jear.
Dallyln this campaign incidents occur
shotting the clcse attention now paid by
the farming element to political develop

are the subject of this close analysis.
Unquestionable the flghi on Butler, led
by Hawes and the domination of the Re

attentive. They followed every argument
advanced, exhiblUng the serious Interest
which has characterized Folk meetings in
all parts of Missouri. Mr. Folk touched
upon that question which Republicans are
now advancing as the paramount Issues.
His words had marked effect.
"The candidate of the Republican ma
chine," 3Ir. Folk said, "says he wants an
honest ballot. Every good citizen of aU
parties wants an honest ballot, and I will
gladly Join any move to secure an abso
lutely honest ballot. That Is what the
Democratic party is contending for, and
is parUcnlariy interested In securing. But
is not this Republican cry advanced for
the purpose of obscuring the main issue
in this campaign?'
"Why is it tlat the Republican machine

to alienate the votes of boodlers?
"Is this crisis of Missouri's history any

Tbe attendance was remarkable. In
view of several facts. The time of the
meeting had been hurriedly changed, with
only two daysr wamine. from afternoon
to morning. Many reached town too late
on this account- Moreover, on these fire
days the farmer has his corn to ct and
his spnn wheat r) sow. He has "much
to do. and It Is a strong attraction which

GENERAL TENOR OF ADDRESS
ENCOURAGES WALL STREET.
New York. Oct. 18. The address deliv
ered before the Illinois Bankers' Associa
tion in St. Louis to-day by Frank A.
Vanderiip. vice president of the National'
City Bank of New York, is regarded here
as having optimistic views on the Indus
trial and financial situation. -tempered by
cautionary warnings against overtrading
and stock speculation.
"Wall street for some days has mani
fested much interest and curiosity over
the address news of tfafi tflivranA ii.i.
tag become known in advance. The in
terest: was natural, partly Decause of the
association of 3In vtanrtprllrt wttK h
Standard Oil party whose views, it was
held, he would publicly voice, and partly
because of the remarkable accuracy with
which he summed up the financial and
commercial, situation two .years ago in
an address delivered at Wilmington. N C

Mr. Vanderiip then said it was time to
call a. halt. A careful rereading ot the
original address shows "tt It mentioned
many highly favorable features, and that
It was a conservative note of warning.
Still, prices declined, and same of the de
clines; were attributed to 3Ir. Vanderilp's
Speculative -Wall street was rather at a
loss to reconcile some of Mr. Vanderllp's
statements to-day. They did not. appar
ently., think It consistent for a xsaa. to
speak of. the wonderful development of
the country, and express confidence of Its
continuance to a. marked degree, with, such
remarks as that, "prices have shown most
substantial recovery a. recovery certainly
In advance of what would be warranted
by present actual conditions."
That, according to "Wall street specu
lators. Is not the way to bull stocks.
Other remarks, too. which, somewhat
chilled "Wall street's enthusiasm, were that
"encouragement of a wild speculative
boom at the time when Improvement U
justified more by hopes and possibilities
than by Immediate active conditions, might
set the whole period of recovery back a
month, six months or a year."
Still. 3Ir. Vanderllp's references to gen
eral business were hlchlv encouraging.
and the conclusion of his remarks were;
"I believe that the conditions are am
favorable to a return of prosperity. I De
Ileve it Is time for optimism."
