Y., ^an. 22.—Governor Hughes last night publicly declared his attitude toward the movement in favor of his nomination for the pres idency in a letter to James L,ehnialer of New York, acknowledging notifica tion of the resolution of indorsement recently passed by the Republican club and appointing the evening of Friday of next week for a meeting with the club, at which he intimates he will still more definitely declare himself. "I am deeply sensible of the honor conferred upon me," says the gover nor, "by my fellow members of the Republican club in the passage of the resolution to which you refer, and it will give me pleasure to accept invitation. In accepting it, It is pt?' per for me to restate my position. "I.t is my desire that the sentiment of the party shall-have the freest ex pression and that such action shall be Grippe! There is be 50,000 New York. 1 S "Already there was coolness'between the president and Odell. The Harriman episode made It a frost. Tho president threw his great power against Odell. He was largely responsible for the downfall of "Boss" Odell, who of late has been showing signs of a burning desire to get back into power In state politics, and there is now indisputable proof that Harriman ordered Odell to line up his men for the Hughes reso lution at the meeting of the county committee. Odell had no recourse bu( to obey the orders of lilh master, his chief al mbner, the maxi who supplies the funds with which Odell maintains his hold on the city districts. Moreover, Harriman offered to pay the $10 per man delinquent-dues which the rules •of the committee demanded before members could gain admission to the hall where the meeting was held. "President Roosevelt has always be lieved that in the end the interests .Who are eager to defeat lilin and his' poli cies would be found working for Gov ernor Hughes. This episode shoWs that the president was right, so far as l-tarrlman is concerned. The move ment for Hughes in New York state Is rapidly drifting into a tight upon Roosevelt. This is not: true of many thousands of good republicans who believe In the governor and would like to see him president, but it is true of politicians and leaders who contribute, experience, influence, time or money. Almost without exception the strong men who are working for Hughes are avowed and bitter enemies of Presi dent Roosevelt and his policies. Odell, Black, Aldridge, Brackett. all are hat ersi of the man in the White House, and at their head, vindictive, .^ager, implacable, is E. H. Harriman. "And Governor Hughes? Where does he stand?

Lincoln, Neb.—A little girl, supposed to be Ijlllie Olson, who disappeared from her home near Rosalie nearly six weeks ago, Is with a band of gyp sies camped near the village of An gus. Rosalie, the Olson home, Is In the northeastern part of Nebraska, and Angus is In tHo extreme southern part of the state. When the gypsies passed thru An gus the girl was dressed as a boy. She was carried in a wagon, was fretful, and her seeming distress aroused cu riosity. The people or tlig town heard the child's cries and followed tho band out Into the country where they camped. The Investigators kept watch on the supposed boy all night. Sheriff Jones of Nuckolls county detained the gypsy band. All thru the night the child' fried loudly. The leader of the gypsies offered her presents, but they had no effect on the girl. When the sheriff got to the scene the spies on the gypsy camp informed him of what they had seen, and the band was ta ken back to Angus and later to Nel son, the county seat. Sheriff Jones was communicated with by long distance telephone. He said tlie Identification was not posi tive, but tho child answered the de scription of the Olson, girl. That she Is not a gypsy tho sheriff is positive. He had her picture, with out objection on the part of the gyp sies, and hopes to make the identifica tion positive soon. Her parents at Ro salie have been notified. For three weeks after Ij111 io Olson disappeared near Rosalie early In De cember, the country round about was searched high and low, a thousand men and boys at one time constituting the searchers. It was finally decided the child had died fronv exposure or had been murdered and her body concealed. Bride of an Hour Too Gay. Milwaukee, Wis.—John Anderson, a farmer of Plummer, Minn., was so shocked when his bride of less than an hour invited him to join her in a eigaret at ,breakfast and asked for a bottle of beer, that he drove her from the house and began divorce proceed ings on his wedding day, according to the story which comes from Red Lake Falls, Minn. The bride was won by letter. She was Miss Jessie "Berry of this city. Slie saw his advertisement for a wife, an swered It, and he selected her from a long listi of applicants.

The astonished and disgusted keeper stared Into the thicket. The dog lay quiver ing, impatient for signal. Sylvia's heart, which had seemed to stop with her voice, silenced iu the gusty thun der of heavy wings, began beating too fust. For (he ringing crack of a gun shot could have spoken no louder to her than (he glittering silence of the suspended barrels tior any proinlso of kls voice Hound as the startled stillness sounded now about her. for he had made something a trifle more than mere amends for his rudeness. He was overdoing everything a little. 1 A moment Inter a far hall sounded scross the uplands, and against the sky figures moved distantly. "Alderdene and Marlon Page." said Slward. "I believe we lunch yoader, do we uot, Miles?" They climbed the bill In silence, ar riving aftei a few minutes to llnd oth ers already at luncheon—the Page boys, eager, enthusiastic, recounting adventure l»y flood and field Iteua Bonnesdel, tired and frankly bored and decorated w-ith more than her share of mud Kileeu Shaunon, very pretty, very effective, bavlug done more execution with her eyes thaii with the dainty fowling piece beside her.

"Eight full brace," Bhe commented. "We have five and an odd cock pheasant —from Black Fells, I suppose. The people to our left have beeu biasing away like Coney Island, but Uena's guide says the ferns are full of rab bits that way, and Major Bel wether cun't hit fur afoot. You," she added frankly to Slward, "ought to take the cup. The birches ahead of you are full of woodcock. If you don't How ard Quarrler will. He's Into a flight of jack snipe, I hear." Blward's eyes had suddenly narrow ed then he laughed, patting Saga more's cheeks. "1 don't believe 1 shall shoot very steadily this afternoon,'' be said, turning toward the group at luncheon under the trees. "1 wlph Quarrier well with the cup." s. "Nonsense!" said Marjon Page enrt ly. "You are the cleanest shot I ever knew." And she rulsed her glass to him frankly aud emptied It with the precisfon characteristic of her "Your cup! With nil my heart!" "1 also drink (o your success, Mr. Si ward," suid Sylvia In a low voice, lift ing her champagne glass in the sun light. "To the Shotover cup—if you wish it." In the little gust of hand clapping and laughter he turned again to Sylvia smilingly, saying under his breath, "As though winning the cup would compensate me now for losing it!" She leaned involuntarily nearer, "You mean that you will not try for It?" "Yes." "That Is not fair to me!" "Why not?" "Because—because I do not ask It of you." "You need not, now that I know your wish." Vi "Mr. Slward, I—my—wish"— But she had no chance to finish. Al ready Rena Bonnesdel was looking at them, aud there was a hint of amused surprise In Eileen Shannon's mischie vous eyes, averted Instantly, with ma licious ostentation. Then Marion Page took possession of .him so exclusively, so calmly, that something In her cool certainty vague ly irritated Sylvia, who had never liked her. Besides, the girl Showed too plain ly her Indifference to other people, which other people seldom find amus ing. "Stephen," called out Alderdene anx iously counting the web loops In his khaki vest, "what do you call fair shooting nt these ruffed grouse? You needn't be civil about it, you know." "Five shells to a bird Is good shoot ing," answered Slward. "t)on't you 'think so, Miss Page?" "You have a better score, Mr. Sl ward," said Marlon Page, with a hos tile glance at Alderdene, who had not made good. "Iiupatient to start, she had turned her tailor made back to the company and was Instructing his crest fallen lordship very plainly: "You fire too quickly, Bllnky. Two seconds is what you must count when a grouse flushes. You must say, 'Mark, right,' or 'Mark, left, bang!'" And so the luncheon party, lord and lady, twins and maidens, guides and dogs, trailed away across the ridge, distant silhouettes presently against the sky, then gone. And after a little while the far dry, accentless report of smokeless powder announced that the opening of the season had been re sumed and the birds were dying fast in the glory of a perfect day. "Are you ready, Mr. Si ward?" She Ktood waiting for him at the edge of the thicket. Miles resumed his game sack and her fowling piece. The dog lame up, looking him anxiously iu the eyes. So he walked forward beside her into the dappjed light ot the thicket. Within a few minutes the dog stood twice, and twice the whirring twitter 01 woodcock startled her, echoed by 5 January 22 ROBERT W. CHAMBERS. tlie futile cruck of hlsf gun. "Beg pardon, sir." "Yes, Miles," with a glint of humor. "Overshot, sir. excusln' the liberty. Mr. Slward. Both marked down forty yard to the left If you wish to start 'em agalu." "Miles," he sn'd. "my nerve is gone. Such things huppeu. I'm all in. Come over here, my friend, and look at the sun with me." The discomfited keeper obeyed. "Where ought that refulgent luml nary to scintillate when 1 face Osprey Ledge?" "Sir?" "The sun. IIow do 1 hold It?" "On the p'lnt of your right shoulder, sir. You ain't qulttlu', Mr. Slward, sir!" anxiously. "That Shotover cup Is easy yours, sir!" eagerly. "Wot's miss on a old drummer. Mr. Siward? Wot's twice overshootln' cock, sir, when a blind dropper can see you are the cleanest, fastest, hard shootin* shot in the bull county?" But Slward shook his head, with an absent gianco at the dog, and motioned the astonished keeper forward. "Line tho easiest trail for us," he said. "I think we are nlready a trifle tired. Twigs will do In short cover. Use a hatchet In the big timber. And go slow Ull we Join you." And when the unwilling and per plexed keeper had started, Slward, un locking his gun, drew out the smootli yellow cartridges and pocketed them. Sylvia looked up as the sharp metal lic click of the locked breech rang out in the silence. "Mr. Slward!" in quick displeasure. "Yes?" "What you do for your amusements cannot concern me." "Right, as usual," he Bald, so gayly that a reluctant smile trembled on her lips. "Then why have you done this? It is unreasonable if you don't feel as I do about killing things that are having a good time In the world." lie stood silent, absently looking at the fowling piece cradled in his left arm. "Shall we sit here a moment and talk it over?" he suggested listlessly. Her blue gaze swept him. His vague amlle was ludlfferently bland. "If you are determined not to shoot we might as well start for Osprey Ledge," she suggested. "Otherwise, what reasou Is there for our being here together, Mr. Slward?" Awaiting his comment, perhaps ex pecting a counter proposition, she lean ed against the tree beside which he stood, and after awhile, as his absent minded preoccupation continued: "Do you think the leaves are dry enough to sit on?" He slipped off his shooting coat and placed It at the base of the tree. She seated herself, and, as he continued to remain standing, she stripped off her shooting gloves and glanced up nt him inquiringly. "Well, Mr. Siward, I am literally at your feet." "Which redresses the balance a lit tle," he said, finding a place near her. He sat there, chin propped on his linked fingers, elbows on knees and. though there was always the hint of a smile In his pleasant eyes, always the Indefinable charm of breeding in voice and attitude, something now was lack ing. And after a moment she con cluded that It was his attention. Cer tainly his wits were woolgathering again. His eyes, edged with the shad ow of a smile, saw far beyond her, far beyond the sunlit shadows where they sat. In his preoccupation she had found him negatively attractive. She glanced at him now from time to time, her eyes returning always to the beauty of the subdued light where all about them silver stemmed birches clustered like slim shining pillars crowned with their autumn canopy of crumpled gold. "Enchantment!" she said under her brfeath. "Surely an enchanted sleeper lies here somewhere." "You," he observed, "unawakened." "Asleep? I?" She looked around at him. "You are the dreamer here. Your eyes are full of dreaming e,ven now. What is your desire?" He leaned on one arm, watching her. She had dropped her ungloved hand, searching among the newly fallen gold of the birch leaves drifted into heaps. On the third finger a Jewel glittered. He saw it, conscious of its meaning, but his eyes followed the hand idly heaping up autumn gold—a white slim hand, smoothly fascinating. Then the little restless hand swept near to his, almost touching it, and then instinc tively he took it in his own curiously, lifting it a little to consider its nearer loveliness. Perhaps it was the unex pectedness of it, perhaps it was sheer amazement, that left her hand lying idly relaxed like a white petaled blos som in his. After a little while the consciousness of the contact disconcerted her. She withdrew her fingers, with an Invol untary shiver. "Is there no chance for me, Miss Landis?" The very revulsion of self possession returning chilled her then anger came quick and hot then pride. She delib erated, choosing her words coolly enough, "What chance do you mean. Mr. Siward?" "A fighting chance. Can you give it to me?" "A fighting chance? For what?" very low. very dangerous. "For you." Then In spite of her her senses be came unsteady. A sudden ringing con fusion seemed to deafen her, through which his voice, as If very far away, kle -J. I I 003 :-f*rfTwTr™**F*. (founded again: "Men who are worth a fighting chance ask for It sometimes, but take It always. I take it." Iler pallor faded under the flood of bright color. The blue of her eyes darkened ominously to velvet. "Mr. Slward." she said very dis tinctly and slowly, "I am not—even sorry—for you." "Then my chance Is desperate In deed," lie retorted coolly. "Chance! I)o you Imagine"— Her anger choked her. "Are you not a little hard?" he said, paling under his tan. "I suppose wo men dismissed men more gently—even such man an I am." For a full minute she strove to com preheud. "Such a man as youi" she repeated vaguely. "You mean"— A crimson wave dyed her skin to the temples, and she leaned toward him iu horror stricken contrition. "I didn't mean that, Mr. Slward! 1—I never thought of thall It had no weight. It was not In my thoughts. I meant only that you had assumed whet Is unwarranted—that you—your question humiliated me. knowing that I am engaged—knowing mo so little- so"— "Xes, I knew everything. Ask your self why I rlsi everything to say this to you? There cau be only one answer." Then, after a long sileuce, "Have I aver," she begau tremblingly—"aver by word or look"— "No." 4 "Have I even"— "No. I've simply discovered how 1 feel. That's what I was dreaming about when you asked me. I was afraid I might do this too soon, but I meant to do It anyway before it be came too late." "It was too late from the very mo ment we met, Mr. Slward." And, as be reddened painfully again, she added quickly, "I mean that I had already decided." And, as be said nothing: "You were a little rough, a little sudden with me, Mr. Slward. Men have asked me that question—several times, but never so soon, so unreasonably soon never without soma preliminary of soma sort, so that I could foresee—be more or less prepared. But you gave ate no warn ing. I—If you had I would have known how to be gentle,. I—I wish to be now." Still he said nothing. lie sat there listlessly studying the sun spots glow ing, waxing', waning, on the carpet of dead leaves at his feet. "As for what you have said." she added, a little smile curving the sensi tive mouth, "tt is Impulsive, uncon sidered, a trifle boyish. Mr. Siward. I pay myselif the compliment of your sincerity. It Is rather nice to be a girl who cs.n awaken the romance In a man within a day or two's acquaint ance. W* shall not misunderstand each other again, shall we?" He raised his head, considering her, forcing the smile to meet her own. "We shall be better friends than ever," she asserted confidently. "Yes, better than ever." "Because what you have done means the nicest sort of friendship, you see. You can't escape Its duties and re sponsibilities now, Mr. Slward. I shall expect yoj to spend the greater part of your life In devotedly doing things for me. Besides, I am now privileged to worry you wltt^ advice. Oh, you have invested me with all sorts of powers now!" He nodded. She sprang to her feet, flushed, smil ing, a trllle excited. "Is It all over, and are we the very ideals of friends?" she asked. "The very ideals." "You are nice."" she said impulsively, holding out both gloveless hands. He held them, she looking at him very sweetly, very confidently. "And you are content?" persuasively. "Of course not," he said. "Then I am sorry for you. Look at that!" turning her left hand in his so that the Jewel on the third finger caught the light. "I see it." "And yet"— "And yet." "That," she observed, with compo sure, "Is sheer obstinacy. How can you really care for me? Do you actually believe that devotion comes like that?" "Exactly like that." "So suddenly? It Is impossible!" with a twist of her pretty shoulders. "How did it come to you?" he asked between his teeth. Then her face grew scarlet, and her eyes grew dark, and her hands con tracted in his— nr fl twisted fingers entangled, un til, with a little sob, she sway ed toward him, and he caught her. An Instant, a minute—more perhaps she did not know—she half lay in bis arms, her un taught Hps close against his. Lassitude, faint consciousness, then tiny shock on He had freed her. She remembered that somebody had asked him to—per haps herself. That was well. She needed to.breathe, to summon strength and common sense, find out what had been done, what reasonless madness she had committed In the half light of the silver stemmed trees clustering in 6hameful witness on every hand. Suddenly the hot humiliation of it overwhelmed her, and she covered her face with her hands, standing, almost swaying, as wave on wave of incredu lous shame seemed to sweep her from knee to brow. That phase passed after awhile. Out of it she emerged flushed, outwardly composed. Into another phase. In full self possession once more, able to understand what had •1 Happened without the disproportion ot emotional exaggeration. After all, she had only been kissed. Besides, she was a novice, which probably account ed in a measure for the unreasonable emotion coincident with a caress to which she was unaccustomed. With out looking up a I him she found herself saying coolly enough to surprise her self: "I never supposed I was capable of that. It appears that I am. I haven't anything to.say for myself ex cept that I feel fearfully humiliated. Don't say anything now. I do not blame you truly I do not. ft was con temptible of tne—to do It—wearing this"— She stretched out her slender left hand, not looking at him. "It was contemptible!" She Blowly raised her eyes, summoning all her courage to face blm. But be only saw In the pink confu sion of her lovely face the dawning challenge of a coquette saluting her ad versary In gay acknowledgment of bis fleeting moment of success.

"Why do ycu take It so seriously?" she said, laui hlng and studying him, certain now of herself In this new dis guise. "Do you taUe It lightly?" he asked, striving to sn lle. "I? As I must, you k®ow.
