off his straw hat then, and scarcely put

He almost outwore the patience of all

"Certainly. Let us go to him," Mr.
McKlnley said.
The others of the party discreetly remained
outside of the tent. The President
appeared with the nurses a moment

HAWAIIAN ANNEXATION.
A Striking Colncl leuce of Oalei-A Pop*
ut?r Conmo.
The Washington ?iar refers to a notable
circumstance in connection with
the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands,
as follows:
By a striking coincidence the American
flag was hoisted officially over the
Hawaii, joining the islands to the United
States, on the same day <he peace
protocol was signed at Washington. August
12. 18&8, thus becomes doubly significant
In the history of the United
States, marking the formal opening of
the era of a wider natlonul sphere and
the close of -the war which made possible
this extension of the country's political
as well as commercial lines.
Hawaiian annexation would doubtless
have resulted from the ever-increasing
pressure of public opinion in its favor,
whether the United States had gone to
war with Spain or not. intimately the
vital need of these islands would have
so clearly impressed itself upon the Intelligence
of the people and their representatives
in .Congress that the union of
the republics would be inevitable. But
I Il.la hmIanl llt/o ninot Bruit untoHirllM.
found its path obstructed by large and
small obstacles, and It remained for the
war to remove them at one sweep. The
need of a half-way utatlon for the
transportation across the sreat ocean
of a large army of soldiers and a squadron
of warships was clearly demonstrated.
The strategic value of an outpost
of this kind was made far more
plainer by events than by arguments.
The dismissal of Minister Woodford
from Madrid by the Spinlsh government
thus virtually became the cause
of the flag-raising at Honolulu on the
12th of last month.
Hence It Is particularly appropriate
that the ceremony of making Hawaii
American territory should have taken
place?by a coincidence?on the same
day which marked the practical close
of the war In which Hawaii cut so large
a figure. The raising of the Stars nnd
Stripes brings to Hawaii a guarantee
of peace which she never before enjoyed.
Her exposed position, without a
military force or navy for, defense, Is
now safeguarded. Hawaii's Isolation
gives place to participation In the advancement
of one of the world's most
progressive nations, nnd at o time of
exceptional momentum. The change Involves
more than an amendment of Ha
wall's relations with the rest of the
world. It marks the flr.'t utep abroad
on the part of a hitherto home-keeping
nation. It foreshadows the completion
of thr Inter-ocennic canal, for which

The Beautiful Chicago Girl Who Marrl
The marriage of George M. Pullman, <
Jr., con of the late palace car millionaire,
to Miss Lynah Fernald, of Chicago, j

however, and the strangest of all Is that/ <
Mr. Sanger Pullman was one of the mon

Mrs. Pullman Is the daughter of J. W.
