THE OHIOAOO HSjOLHI. I v rprivf -t t t-i. o-er it TTHE : FAIR : I! 1 TUB "machine" of one of the polit ical purtlea of Butto County was at work. The wheel-horses of the organisation were In executive ae atoa aud the mnnufacture of a "elate" for the ratification of tbo county cob Tentlon was In progress. Everything had been settled without friction up to certain point, hut here the making of Candida le cnnie to a full atop. Some ae must Iw selected to run for Super intendent of Hchooli. and some one else lit be found who was disinterested enough to stand for the place of County Surveyor, with tbo nominal emolu ments pertaining thereto. Thla latter problem was settled, nftcr a brief dis cussion, by the powcra Insisting that Al Wood, the Incumbent, who waa present, must stand tor re-election, whether he liked It or not: but a duly qualified can didate for Superintendent of Schools waa not ao easily found. Tbo man who had held that position for two years past had the bud taste to give up his otHce and bis grasp on life at tho aamo time, only two weeks before, thus leav ing his party In n quandary for a candi date to succeed him. Of course, there were plenty of nsprants for the nom ination, but most of them wcro unavail able for reasous political, and the can didate must he a person who was pop ular with the voters of the county. ".llmmle" Van Wert, the handsome young ussayer of the Spread Kagle Mill, had beeti sitting In a dark corner of tho office In which tbo conference was being held, smoking quietly and saying very little until uow; hut be finally put In his oar long enough to uggest thnt "Professor" Striker, the young principal of the local school, would make a good man for tho office. "Ya-as." absented .fudge Bullock, tho venerable Justice of the Peace, "but they don't know him out In tb' kcutry, an' we got t' bnvo somo fuller th't c'n ketch tb' uoutNlde vole. Now, Jlmmle, look yore. What's th' matter with you runnlu' fr Super'iitend'ut y'nclfV" , "Don't gut mo mixed In on a deal like that!" ejaculated Van Wert, fer vently. "1 duti't want any old office. I've got troubles enough uow." BuWudge'Ilultock'a auggestlonmH with unanimous approval on tho part -of all the others present, and, very much ngalnst his will, Mr. Van Wrt waa slated tor tbo nomination, aud -du -. placed In nomlntlon by tbe couveu tloL a few days later. It waa two weeki- before bo found out whnt sort of au '.tponcnt bo was to have, and then, tirich to his disgust, ho learned that tbe other party had nominated a girl. This wns almost enough to moko hlm throw up llici canvass. The Iden of the other fcllowM thinking that hu could lie beaten by a woman. Then bo connoted himself with the reflection that perhaps they knuw they couldn't beat III m. aud Jiad merely put up Ibis .Miss Smith lo .act aa a forlorn hope. Thenceforth he did uot put much activity Into his cau vass, hut attended to business pretty .much as usual, nci-cuo In tho belief that tbo voters of ltutto t'ouuty wcro not jut arrived ut thu stago of progression wliou they would permit a woman to hold office. And all this time, be It known, this heretofore unknown and mysterious Miss Smith was becoming known to tbo voters of tho county, and, what was more, she was winning a ,0(1 deal of support from sources upon which Van Wert coutldcutly counted. It lacked ouly about ton days of elec tion day when Van Wert, wltb a sud den shock, camo to bis senses. Two or three things had occurred to detract from his overcontldeuce. Among these was tbe avowal ou the pnrt of several personal aud political friends of their intention to support Miss Smith, giving 4is their reusous that sbo bad u good record as an educator nud was without doubt well qualltled for tbe office; that ahe wanted the office, nnd was making a hard tight for It; nnd that Van Wert didn't want It and didn't ueed It. On top of this be was Informed thnt hla opponent had been out lu the "cow dla triers," nnd bad the cowboy vote pretty well "duelled." This cheering an nouncement came from two or three of tbo "bosses" Tbo called on him to see If bo didn't think It worth while to get out aud save his political scalp by "rus tling" like tbo rest of tbe candidates. "We'll have the committee Qx some dates for you to speak, aud you'vo got to fill 'em, Jlmmle: If you don't you're a gono goose," said they. . So, wltb tbo Inward fear that he might, after all, be defeated, Van Wert began In earuest the effort to save him self. He did not care for tbe otJeo, but be dreaded defeat at tbe bands of a woman, being oue of the kind of men who do not believe the gentler sex baa any business In politics. He pictured Miss Smltb aa a big, gaunt, red-haired, self-assertive person, wltb large red bands and a snappy way of speaking and waa quite surprised to learn that sbo waa really a very ladylike young woman, tipping tbe beam at about 110 pounds. It lacked but four days of election day, and tbe various candidates were putting In every hour possible In mak ing speeches and seeing tbelr constit uent and other people. Van Wert bad put In somo very telling work In several places wbere It would do tbo most good, but In two or three precincts It waa feund that a strong aentlment la favor '5-"2?? TIWs 1 SOB- JFS: - --!. ""' . ,JPP'. """""""'f CANDIDATE. - of his opponent had developed, and muat be overcome by some means If ho hoped to win. Unfortunately, bo was worried, and hla actions showed It; on one or two occasions while speaking be had given way to puerile bursts of tem per that by no means enhanced his cbancea for auccess. Somo of the older heads had warned him that by making alurrlng remarks about his opponent be would only hurt himself, to which he responded by the childlike remark: "Well, If n woman doesn't want to got herself talked about she'd better keep out of politics." " This bo practically repeated to,a mix ed crowd at Conover's schoolhouae, In one of the strong "cow districts," on Friday night before election, adding: "I cannot believe that parents Inter ested In the future welfare of tbclr chil dren are willing to Intrust tbolr early training to tbo bands and mcthoda of ono who so far forgets her womanhood aa to stand as a candidate for a public office." Of course he regretted the re mark almost aa soon as It waa uttered, aud recognised that the silence with which It was received was tbo silence of n disapproval too strong to And ex pression lu words. But It waa too late tor regrets, and he expressed none. The next afternoon came a brief but poluted note from Mlsa Smith, In which she gently reminded hlm that his youth had evidently led hlm aatray so far as to forget tho fact that abe was practi cally defenseless, and that In apcaklng of her aa be bad be bad been both un manly and ungcntlcmanly. This, com ing as It did, at A time when ho was mentally cursing himself for an ass and a brute, did not tend to soothe him, for he knew that every word the note con tained waa true. So, Instead of auswer Ing It as a man should, ho wrote at tho bottom of tbo sheet: "You have up business In politics If you dou't want to stand the consequences," then signed It and remallcd It to the original sender. An hour later be was sorry ho bad dono so, and tried to get the letter out of the postofHce, but failed. Thus It was that tho next evening, aa be rode aloug the lonely trull leading to - tbe "enemy's country," wbero be was to address a big meeting of cattlemen aud make an effort to redeem himself by practically recanting all tliat he bad said derogatory to tbe opposing candi date without losing too much of bis al ready shattered self-respect, be was ao absorbed mentally In thinking over whnt bo should say that he did not hear a sudden command to halt, and rcallxod that he was In troublo only when a sinuous, swishing thing hurtled through the air, pinioned his nrms to hla sides, and Jerked him from his sad dle to the rough ground. "(load shot, ol' maul" said somo ono In cowboy costume, who camo up aud sat ou the victim's chest. "Yo got him right 'round tb' elbows, fust throw o' tho rope." "Let mo up, you scoundrel!" fumed Van Wort. "You cau tnko my mouey without taking my wind at the ho mo time, can't you?" "Easy, m' son," chuckled the giant who wns silting astride him, as he held tho cnudldato's wrlsta so that tbo other mau, who now camo up, could tbo more easily tlo them. "Wo don't want y'r stuff. Do we, pnrdnerV" "Nopey, Van," said the second man, In a volco that Van Wert tried lu vain to recognise. "We Jest want t' put yo where ye won't make no mo' fool r'marka 'bout th' lady tu'a' ag'n ye not thla evenln', anyways," "Seo boro, boys," aald Van Wert, more calmly, "this Isn't a square deal. You know I've got to be at the meeting at Meeker at 8 o'clock? Well, It's almost that now, ao let mo go." "Ob, no, Jlmmle!" laughed ono of hla captora heartlessly, "Not t'ulgbt, 'Squar deal,' I bllleve ye said? Waa It a squar deal f'r you t' glt up an' mako tb talk ye did 'bout tb' little school ma'am las' night? Not any. So stnu' up, Jlmmle, nu' let th' gent tackle ye to th' tree. We'll lot yo go 'tore ye glt cold. Easy, lad. Ef ye glt guy we won't do a thing but hawg-tle ye an' leave ye lay till mawnlu'." Tbe next hour waa aa long a ono as Jlmmle Van Wert ever spent. Tho night waa a chilly one, nnd tho ropes with which he was bound prevented tbe freo circulation of blood, so that lu a very short time hla extremities were aching with cold. To add to his dis comfort, au owl took Ita station In the brush near by aud hooted derlalvoly wbeuover tbe prisoner shouted, and the cries of tbe owl were responded to by several wolves, whose voices souuded aa though they were very close at hand. Several times Van Wert heard people go by ou borsoback and In wngous, and shouted to them at the top of his lungs, but the trail waa some dlstauce from tbe clump of brush, ami they did not hear him. At last, bowover, when be had about given up all bopo of escaping until his captors should come and re lease hlm, he beard tbe aound of horses 'coming along tbe trail, tbelr riders laughing and chatting, aud be lifted up bis volco In n mighty effort to make himself beard. Tbe rider evidently beard him, and stopped. He shouted again, and presently beard them com ing toward lilm. "How did it happen?" querlod the young woman, after she and the boy had released tbe candidate from bis nncemfortable predicament, and ha waa untying hla horse from a neighbor ing tree. Van Wert explained In an Injured tone, adding, with as much dignity na he could command! "1 am the candi date for Superintendent of School, nnd I suppose this Is a sample of the meth ods Miss Smith and her cowboy friends have adopted to defeat inc. They knew 1' was to speak at Meeker to-night, and thought that by preventing me from doing so they could gain a few voted. I'll show 'cm when I get there." The young woman laughed merrily. "Politics la a funny business, Isn't It?" she said. "Tho Iden of reporting to audi measures! But," she ndded sobrr ly, "you should not blume Miss Smith for what her ovcr-xealous friends have done. I Mlsa Smith Is a friend of mine, and 1 know she would not sanc tion auch a thing. It It would be aiost unfair to accuse her of It, don't you think, without being certain of your ground?" Van Wert admitted that It would. "Then aa a favor to me," said hla fair rescuer, "do not, please, say anything about It, at least by way of connecting her with tho affair. I'm sure no one would regret It more than she, If sue knew about It." After somo hesitation Van Wert promised, nnd presently his rescuer and ber escort left hlm. branching off on a trail that led toward n farmhouse that he could sec lu the distance. Tho candidate noted with a grim smile, on his return, the consternation his appearance created In a certain part of tho room, and concluded that two or three men whom lie knew to be friends of hla looked rather sheeplih, but he kept his own counsel nud made no ref erence to his adventure. In the course of the excellent speech he presently made be "took back" what bo had aald about hla opponent in a manner so graceful as to win for him rounds of applause, and when bo sat down It waa with the consciousness that ho had In part redeemed himself. Aa he started, along with some of the other candidates, to leave the lull, he noticed for tho first time that tbo young woman who had rescued him from tbe "fix" In which tho cowboys had left him had not gone home to stay when she left him, for there aho was, Just leaving the ball In company with an older woman In widow's weeds. "Who Is that?" ho aaked of tbe candi date for Sheriff, who waa at his aide. "That girl?" queried the other. "Why, boy, that'a your hated adversary, Mlsa Smltb. Hadn't you seen ber before?" But Van Wert did not hear the ques tion. Ho hurried to eaten up wltb tbo opposing candidate, wbo started when ho addressed ber, but quickly recovered herself and smiled awectly upon hlm. "Miss Smith," bo burst out Impetu ously, "I don't know what you must think o' me, after all tbo low-down things I've said about you, and tbe holy show I made of myself thla ovenlng. But I hope you'll believe mo when I say I'm sorry for tbe things I've aald and I honestly hope you'll be elected, after all. I shall vote for you, any way, and you can count on lots of my friends." But his boyish enthusiasm In behalf of bla opponent came too late, to bo of aervlce to her, for tho returns showed that Van Wert was elected by a small majority, for which ho wia Indebted to the miners. On Thursday after elec tion bo wcnfMo Miss Smith. "I regret this aa much as you do," he aald, earnestly. "I wish I had met you earlier In tbe campaign. But I have a proposition to make. What are you go ing to do now?" "I don't know," ahe aald, trying to conceal tho sadness lu ber tones. "You see, I had to glvo up my school, and there aro no vacancies now." "Well, what I waa going to propose la this: Will you take un appointment as my deputy? ltcmcmber, all tbo work will dovolvo upon you," Miss Smltb gasped, and her pretty faco grow a rosy red, then turned pale. Sho did not wish to bo under obliga tions to this man and yet, tbero was tho mother to bo considered, nnd tbe Invalid sister In Chicago, whose hos pital bills wore such a sevoro tax on tbe family resources. "Yes," sbo said, finally, "and tbauk you, vory much, for offerlug me tho place. You have lifted a great load from my mind." Tbero waa some comment on thla ar rangement by tho voters of tho county, but it waa hardly adverse, aud the dep uty soon showed that she was tbo right one In tbo right place. Sho worked day and night, and donled herself necessary sleep thnt her beloved schools should not retrograde; In fact, In tbe course of a few weeks ahe succeeded In making herself almost ill, for tbo death of the former superintendent bad left the af fairs of the office lu rather chaotic con dition, nnd nltbougb Van Wert aud hla deputy qualified at once after the meet lug of the canvassing board, It waa al most Christmas before they got matters straightened out. And It was Just at this time, when the llttlo deputy, more than half III from overwork, wns spending a couple of days at home, that she got a brief uote from ber superior, which rend: "Miss Smith: For some time past I have been dissatisfied with you as Dep uty Superintendent of Schools, aud your resignation as such will bo ac cepted. I will do myself the honor of calling upon you and explaining mat ters more fully to-morrow nlgbt. Very truly yours, "JAMES VAN WERT." Miss Smltb burst Into team. "Just to think, mamma! After I have worked so hard! What shall we do?" "I aupposo tboy want the Job for aome politician that doesn't need It," commeuted Mrs. Smltb, grimly. "But to think he has tbo audacity to come Jiore after that! I won't let him iu, the treacherous thing! discharging you, after blng so friendly, and all that," "Yes, you will, mamma," Interjected tbo girl, recovering herself. "We must not forget ourselves In our own home." Just then tbe door bell rang, and tbe girl hastoned away to hide tbe traces of her tears. When she returned to tbo little parlor Van Wert was atandlng there, big and handsome, In f rent of tbe fireplace, He advanced to meet ber as her mother vanished from tbe room, "You got my noto?" bo said. "I'll tell you bow it Is," ho went on awkwardly. "I'm not satisfied with you as a deputy because because I want you to take tbe office itself and me wltb It." And that waa tbe way they arranged J it-New York Dalby Tribune. ROYAL LIVES AS RISKS, Large Insurance Upon Ir I ncesaf K lags sad Other Knropean Magnates. A peculiar and little known branch of Insurance Is that Indulged In by prfc vato persona who Inouro the lives of royalties for their own benefit From tho stnndpolnt of tho Individual It Is, f course, pure speculation. The roy alty Insured may obligingly depart this life shortly after tbe Insurance la ef fected, In which case there Is quite a respectabto sum netted; or, on the other band, ho or she may persist In lingering to n good old age, when the Insurer benefits but little. But taking out a policy on the life of n royal per sonage Is, ou the average, a pretty good "spec." This Is how It Is done: You, gentle reader, wish to insure the Prince of (Vales (we wltl sny) for the sum of 600. You fill up n proposal form for that amount In the name of "II, It. II. Albert Edward, prince of Wales, duke of Cornwall," etc., nnd forward It to a company which accepts this kind of Insurance. All companies, it must be noted, do not Issue policies ou royalties' Uvea to private Individuals, tut many In quite the first rank do. On receipt of your proposal the com pany will Inform you of the if.to per cent, nt which tho premium will be charged; then, If you nrc wilting to pay thla rate, which la a fairly high one, a policy will be Issued In tho usual way. Most policies of this kind are "without profits" I. e., tbero are no bonus accretions. Although tbero are no statistics on the subject, and accuracy of state ment la therefore Impossible, It Is quits probable that the life of tier majesty, tho queen, la Insured hundreds of times in this manner. Tbe same thing la true, to a modified extent, of most of tht other members of the royal family. Tbe duke of Cambridge, for Instance, has been for the past twenty years a favorite "subject" for speculators. The reason Is obvious, but the rate Is, aa may bo supposed, very high. Many companies also accept prottosnls on th Ilvos of members of foreign royal houses. A few days ago a policy on the Joint lives of the duke of Cambridge and tbe ex-klng of Hnnovcr, for tbo sum of 1,000, waa In the market. The Han over monarch Is dead and tho policy will be paid on tho death of the former. It fetched a large sum. On tbe same day a policy on tbo Joint Uvea of her majesty the queen and tbe duko or Cnmbrldgo was also disposed of. Loa Con Tlt-Blts. NO PATENT ON THIS.

Sbo wns n strictly up-to-date girl and sho attracted no end of attention aa ahe walked cast on Washington avenue, says a St Louis paper. She waa dress ed In tbe height of fashion; she had a bearing aa stately as that of a queen, and ber faco was fair to look upon. But It wns not her face, her dress, or her bearing which attracted attention. Not either nor all three of these. It waa tbo novel way sho had of holding up her skirts or rather of having them held up for her. Did sho havo a maid or a page to carry her train like tho maidens of high degree of a past age? No, but Just a cunning llttlo woolly, Scotch terrier. Wbotbcr ho hnd been trained to the work, or had picked up tbe skirt In a spirit of canine playfulness are unsolv ed problems.

I treated hlm kindly, but sa!d.flrmly that T waa not to be interviewed. 'I hare aot thought of Interviewing you.' re plied tbe reporter, wltb a sadness la bis voice; 'I aak a much greater favor than that' " It turned out that the re porter had an Australian policy which bs knew would be of the greatest ben efit to tbe country. No paper would print It His modest request waa that Kipling would let hlm put forth bla theory as the scheme of tbe novelist. "They will print it" be said, "if I give It as coming from you." "All right agreed Kipling, "fire ahead." So tht young reporter got in four mortal col umns telling the people of Australia bow to run tbelr country.

"Two of the most beautiful and at tno same time munlerotw objects I have ever seen In nil my travels I picked up In Paris during my trip there last sum mer," aald J. V. Atkinson, of Savannah, On., to a friend. "I bought both of them from nn old gunsmith In tho 'Qunrtlcr Latin,' and be assured mo they wcro without doubt tho only ones In existence, as far as lili knowledge of death-denllitg Instru ments went, and he also told me thnt be had purchased them of nu old Span lard wbo hnd spent most of his life In the South Amcrlcnu countries, nnd had never seen anything thnt would In any way approach them for villainous, mur derous purpose. "Tho first, as you '. looks Innocent enough, nnd when I ask you what you think It Is you will reply "A silver matchbox," answered the reporter, as he gingerly handled the beautifully phased stiver object. "Touch that spring." At nn easy touch the ltd of the box flew open on a powerfully hinged spring nnd disclosed the Interior, and lu a comimrtment about one-half of the capacity of the box were n dozen wax matches. "Now, you'll find a tiny bottom on the side next yoi and near your thumb. Just press that lightly." As the suggestion wns followed a lit tle, sharp-pointed, creamy white, curv ed object popped Into view from that portion of the box now occupied by the mntches. "What Is tint?" "Tlmt," mild Mr. Atkinson, "Is no more nor lens than the foro fang of tho f J rent American rattlesnake. You will notice that the fang Is sharp as a needte nt Its point, that It Is slit for a distance up the middle, nnd thnt It Is hollow. You will also obscrvo that a Hue, amber-colored, Jelly-like substance Is contained within the hollow of that fang. That Is nothing less horrible thnu the venom of tho rattlesnake, and tho rankest poison, tbo most deadly of agents known to man.
