It had led htm to n height of power nliovo nil others and was to lead him unto Iho loneliest summit of uccom pllshmcnt In Amorlcnn hlHtory. Not much in my term of service thern In Impnrtiint to thin little tnsk nt mine. I did my work well, If I may believe Uip senator, und crow fumlllnr with the gontlo und ungentle nrtH of tho polltlclon. Ono grent fact Brew In mngnltudo mid sullen portent lis tho months pnssed: the gigantic slave-holding In terests of the South viewed with grow ing alarm the spread of nholltlnn sen tlment. Suldly, quietly and naturally they wero feeling for tho means to de fend and Increase their power. Btrows were coming to tho surface In that session which lietrayed thin deep un dercurrent of purpose. Wo felt It nnd the senator wan worried, I Isuow, hut held his pence. He knew how to keep Ida opinions until the hour had struck thut summoned them to service. The senator never played with his lance. Ily and by Spencer openly sounded tho note of conflict. Tho most welcome yenr of my life dawned on tho flrst of January, 1814. I remember that I aroso before day light that morning and dressed und went out on tho street to welcome It. I hnd less than six months to rnlt for that liny appointed by Hally, I had no doubt that she would ho truo to me. I bud hnd my days of fear nnd depres sion, but always my sublime, faith In her t'limu back In good time. Oh, yes, Indeed, Washington was n fair of beauty and gallantry those tlnys. I saw It nil. 1 have spent muny yours In tho capital, and I tell you the girls of that time had manners and knew how to wear their clothes, hut iiguln Die magic of old memories kept my lady on her throne. There was ono of them Just one of those others who, I sometimes thoiiKlit, wug utmost as graceful and cliiirmlng und noble- Hearted as Sully, and she liked me. I know, hut tho Idenl of my youth gimu-u in the llcht of the early morn lug, to to speak, and was brighter than ull others. Abovo all, I hnd given my word to Sully, nnd well, you know, tiiu oliMlmo Yiinkeo of good stock wus fulrly steadfast, whatever clso may ho Mild of him often a llttlo too steadfast, ns wcra Hen drlmshaw nnd Squire Fullcrton. The denntor and I went calllne that New Year's dny. We suw all tho grout peoplo nnd some of them were more cheerful thnn they hnd n right to be. it wns n weakness of tho time, I shull not no Into details for fenr of wandering too far from my main road Let mo step asldo a moment to say. however, that thero wero two clouds In tho sky of tho WashlnRton society of thoto day. Ono wns strong drink und tho other was tho crude. rough coated, aggressive democrat from tho frontiers of the West. These latter wero often seen In the holiday regnlln of farm or vIIIuro at fushlonuhle func tions, Rome of them chunKCd slowly, snd by und by reached the singe of white linen and dlumnnd breastpins nnd wnlstconts of (Inured silk. It must be suld, however, that their mo tives were always above their taste. Tlio winter wore uwuy slowly In hard work. Mr, Van Ilureu came dowu to sea the senator one day from his country sent on the Hudson. The ex president had been solicited to accept tho nomination nguln. I know that Renntor Wright strongly favored tho plan but f cured that the South wculd defeot him In convention. It being well known that Vnn Huron was opposed to tho nnnexntlnn of Texas. However, lie advised his friend to make u fight for the nomination end this the hitter resolved to do. Thenceforward until mJtidle May I enve my time largely to (he Inditing of letters for the senator lit Vnn Huron's behalf. Tho time splinted for tho conven UM ia Ilnltlmore drew near. Ono dny file senator received uti Intimation thnt tie would no put in nomination If Van Iturtn failed. Immediately ho wrote to Judge Kino of Ogdcnshurg, chair- mnn of tho delegation from tho north ern district of New York, forbidding such uso of his nnmo on the ground that hli acquiescence would Involve dls- lojnlty to his friend tho cx-prvsldcnt. lie gnve mo leave to go to the con Trillion on my way homo to meet Rally, t'bnd confided to Mrs. Wright the de- Mils W my little love affair I had to and she had shown a tender, sympa thetic Interest In the story. The senator had said tn me ono day, with n ccntlo smile: "Hart, you have business In Canton, I bcllove, with which trifling matters like tho choice of n president nnd the Mexlcun question cannot bo permitted to interfere. You must tako tlma to spend a day or two nt tho convention In Uattlmoro on your way. , . He port to our friend Fine, who will look rtflcr your comfort there. Tho experi ence oiiKht to bo useful to n young man wno, i hope, will hnvo work to do in future conventions." I took tho stngo to llnltlmoro next day tho twenty-sixth nf May. Tho convention thrilled me the fines, tho Brent crowd, tho bunds, tho sonRS, tho speeches, tho cheering I seo and henr It all In my talk. Tho upronr lasted for twenty minutes when Van Huron's name wns put In nomination. Then the undercurrent I Tho South wus ngnlnst him us Wright hnd fore seen, Tho deep current of Its power had undermined certain of the north ern and western dcleRiitlons. Osten sibly for Van Huron nnd stubbornly costing their ballots for him, they had voted for tho two-thirds rule, which had uccompllshcd his defent before the ImtlotlnR begun. It continued for two days without a choice. Tho cne'iiy stood firm. After adjournment tl ut evening muny of the Vnn lluren dele Rules wero summoned to n conference. I nttended It with Judgo Kino. Tho ex-presldent had withdrawn nnd requested his friends In the conven tion to vote for Sllus Wright. My emo tions can ho moro readily Imagined than described when I heiird tho (.bouts of cnthusliism which creeled my friend's mime. Tcurs begnn to roll down my cheeks. Judge Kino lifted bin bund. When order wus ut last re stored he hoRUli: "(lentleiuen, as a friend of ho lenrncd senator and as a resident of tho county which is tho proud pos sessor of his home, your enthusiasm bus a welcome sound to mo; but I hap pen to know that Senator Wright will not nllow his nume to go before tho convention." Ho rend tho letter of which I knew. Mr. Ileiijamln K, llutler then suld; "When thut letter wus written Sena tor Wright wus not uwuro Hint Mr. V.i n Huron's nomination could not ho iiecnmpllshed, nor wns he aware thnt his own nomlnutlon would bo tho al most unnnlmous wish of this conven tion. I have tnlkcd with tho leading deleRiiles from Missouri and Vlrglnlu today. They suy Hint ho can bo nomi nated by acclamation. Is It possible that ho n strong party man can re hist this unnnlmoiis cull of tho pnrty with whoso help ho bus won Immortal fnmu? No, It Is not so. It ennnot bo so. Wo must dispatch n messenger to him by horso ut once who iihull take to him from his friend Judgo Fine n frnnk statement of thu Imperious de mand of this convention and u request thut ho telegraph a withdrawal of his letter In the morning." Tho suggestion was unanimously ap proved and within an hour, mounted of. ono of tho best horses In Maryluud so his groom Informed mo I wns on my way to Washington with tho mes siiro of Judgo Kino In my pocket. Yes, I hud two duys to sparo on my sched uto of travel nnd reckoned thnt, by re turning to llultlmnro next day I should reach Cunton In good time. It wns tho kind of thing thnt only n lithe, supple, strong-henrlcd lud such ns I wns In tho duya of my youth, could relish speeding over a dnrk roud by tho light of the stnrs and a hutf-moon, with n horso Hint loved to kick up n wind. My bruin wns In a fever, for tlio notion had come, to mo thut I was making history. Tho luro of famo und high placo hur ried ma on. With tho senator In the presidential chair I should he well rtnrtcd In the highway of grout suc cess. Then Mr. II. Dunkclberg might think ma better than the legacy of Ilenjumln Urlmshnw. A relny uwnlted mo twenty-three tulles down the road. Well, I reached Wiishlnatun very sore, but otherwise tn good form, soon nfter dnybrenk. I was trembling with excitement when t put my horso In tho stable and rang tho hell ut our door. It seemed to mo that I wus crossing the divide between big nnd llttlo things. A few stops moro und I should he look ing dowu Into the grent valley of the future. Yet, now that I was there, I begun to lose confidence. The butler aliened the door. Yes, Ilia senator wus up nnd had Just returned from wnlk and was In hi study. I found him tncre. "Welt, Hart, how does this happen?" hp nsked. "It's Important business," I said, bi 1 presented the letter. Something In his look and manner as ho calmly adjusted his glasses nnd read tho letter of Judgo Kino brought the blood to my face. It seemed to puncture my balloon, so to speak, and I was fulling toqurd tho earth nnd so swiftly my bend swum. Ho laid tho letter on his desk and, without looking up and as coolly us If ho were asking for tho chungo of a dollnr, queried i "Well, Hart, whnt do you think we had better do about It?" "I I was hoping you you would lake It," I stammered. "Thut'a becnuso the excitement of tho convention Is on you," ho an swered, "Let us look nt tlio compass. They hnvo refused to nominate Mr, Von Huron becnuso he Is opjiosed to tho annexation of Texas. On that sub ject the will of tho convention Is now clear. It Is posslbto that they would nominate mo. We don't know about that, wo never shall know. If they did, nnd I accepted, whnt would bo ex pected of me la alto clear. They would expect me to abandon my prin ciples and Uiat course of conduct which I concelvo to be best (or the country. Therefore 1 should hate to accept It under false pretenses and tako their yoke upon mo. Would yon think tho needle pointed that way!" "No," I nnswered. Immediately ha turned to his desk nnd wroto tho telrgram which fixed bis placo In history. It snld no. Into tho lives nf few men has such a moment fallen. I looked nt him with a feeling of awe. What subllmn culm ress nnd serenity wns In his fncal As If It wero n mere detail In the work of tho day, and without a moment's fal tering, ho had declined a crown, for ho would surely hnvo been nominated nnd elected. Ho roso und stood looking out of tho open window. Always I think of him stnndlng thero with tho morning sunlight falling upon his fnce nnd shoulders. Ho had ohicrvcd my emotion ntld I think It had touched him a little. Time, wus n moment of silence. A curious Illusion ciimo to mo then, for It seemed ns If I heard tho sound of distant music. Looking thoughtfully out of tho window ho asked: "llnrt, do you know when our flrst fathers turned out nf thu troll of tho boast nnd found tho long road of hu manity? I think It wus when they dis covered tho compass In their hearts." So now at lust wo hnvo como to that high and lonely place, where we may look hack upon tho toilsome, adven turous way we huvii traveled with tho aid of tho candle nnd tho enmpuss. Now let us stop a moment tn rest and to think. How sweet tho nlr Is hero I Tho night Is falling. I seo tho stars In the sky, Just below mo Is tho valley of Kter nut silence.

If one Is to follow the compuss ho can have but oue king his Ood, I am near the end. I rode back to Hultlmoro thnt forenoon. They had nominated Mr, 1'olk of Tetinesse for president und Silas Wright for vice president, the latter by acclamation, I knew that Wright would dccllno the honor, as ha did, I hurried northward to keep my ap pointment with Sully. Tho boats wero slowed by fog. At Albany I wus a dny behind my schedule, I should hnvo only an hour's leeway If tho boats on tho upper lakes and tho stage from t'lnttsburg were on time. I fcured to trust them. So I caught tho west bound train nnd renchsd Utlcn tbreo liuurs late. There I bought a good horso and his saddle and brldlo and hurried up the north road. When ho was near spent I traded him for n well knit Morgan mare up In tho llttlo vil lage of Sandy Creek. Ob, I knew a good horso as well as tho next man nnd n better una than elm I never owned never. I wus back In my sad dlo nt six In tho afternoon nnd stopped for feed and an hour's rest at nine and rodo on through tho night. I reached the hamlet of Itlchvlllc soon after day break and put out (or a rest of two hours. 1 could tako It easy then. At seven o'clock tho mnro and I started again, well fed nnd eager to go on. It wns a summer morning that short on tho road even that of tho young lover. Its nlr wns sweet with tho breath of tho raendnws. Tho daisies and the clover nnd tho cornflowers nnil tho wild rns seemed In ha wav ing a welcome to me, and tho thorn trees shapely ornament of my native hills wero In blossom, A cloud of pigeons swept ncross tho hluo deep above my bend. Tho grent choir nf tho Molds sntiR to me bobolinks, song sparrows, ineadowlnrks, bluebirds, warblers, wrens, nnd fur nwny In tho rdgo of a spruco thicket I heard the fluto of tho whltc-thrnnted spurrow, I bullied nt n brook In the woods nnd put on n rlenn silk shirt und Ho out of my suddlehiigs. I rodo slowly then tn tho edge of the village of Can ton nnd turned at tho bridge and took the river roud, although I had time to spurn. How my heart wus beating us I nenred tho familiar scene I Tho river slowed Its pneo (here, like n dis cerning traveler, to enjoy tho beauty nf Its shores. Smooth nnd silent wns tho water nnd In It were the blue of the sky nnd thofenthcry shadow-spires of cedar and tamarack und the reflect ed blossoms of Iris nnd meiidow ruo. It was a lovely scene. Thero wns tho pine, hut where was my lady? I dismounted and tied my maro und looked nt my wntch. It lucked twenty minutes to eleven. Sho would come I had no doubt of It. I washed my bunds nnd fnce nnd neck In thu cool wntcr. Suddenly 1 henrd n voleo I know singing: "Harney l.envo tho tllrls Alone." I turned nnd suw your mother, my son. (These lust lines wero dictated to his son.) Sho wus In tho stern of n birch canoe, nil dressed In white with roses In her hair. I raised my hat und she throw n kiss ut me. Old ICuto sat In the how waving her handkerchief. They stopped nnd Snlly asked In n tono of playful seriousness: "Young mnn, why have you come hero?" "To Ret you," I answered. "What do you want of mo?" She wns looking ut her fnco in tho wntcr. "I want to marry you," I nnswered bravely. 'Then you may, help mo ashore It you please. I am In my best, whlto slippers and you nro to bo very care ful." Henutlfull Sho was the spirit of the fields of Juno then nnd always. I helped her iishoro und held her In my arms nnd, you know, tho lips have n way of speaking then In tho old, con vincing, final argument of love. They left no doubt In our hearts, my son. "When do you wish to marry mo?" sho whispered. "As soon ns possible, hut my pny la only sixty dollars n month now." "Wo shall make It do," sho nn swered, "My mother nnd father nnd your mint and undo und the Ilnckets nnd tho minister nnd a number of our friends nro coming In n fleet of bonis." "We nro prepnred either for n picnic or a wedding," wns tho whisper of Kute. "Let's mnko It both," I proposed ti Sully. "Surely thero couldn't bo n better ptneo thnn hero under tho big pine it's so smooth nnd soft nod shndy," snld she. "Nor could thero bo a better dcy ol hotter company." I urged, for I win not suro thut sho would agree. Tho boats camo along. Sully and I waved n welcome from Hie bnnk and sho merrily proclaimed: "It's to bo n wedding." Then n cheer from tho bonts, In which I Joined. I shnll never forget how, when the company hnd landed and tho greetings worn over, Uncle I'eabody npprnached your mother nod snld; "Sny.
