I he National Republican League nioets every two years and Its ses sions always have an liifiortanL bear ing on the campaign. The league lias played an Important pnrt In all con gressional and presidential campaigns since 1896, when It organized the young voters of tho country in a "prosperity crusade." Roosevelt. Hit chcock, Cortelyou and other leaders have been among the most active and enthusiastic workers of the league. The organization has at all times been, kept free from factions tfTl feuds, and has worked only for the success of tho party at the polls. No distinc tion Is made between stalwarts, stand patters, regulars, Insurgents or pro gressives. The league officially takes no part In such differences of opinion, but acts only after candidates have been named by primaries or conven tions. All Republicans look nliko to the league, declared Secretary Atherton, in discussing tho present campaign. T he ritual of the league Is the party platform. As Indiciduals. members of the league may take part in prellml ary difference* of opinion. After the 1*nue has been decided, the league may take part In preliminary differ ences of opinion.

I opened my reticule to take out nonio samples when, to my surprise. I found entirely different contents from wbnt I had e* pected. In short, I had laid my own reticule down on o counter and picked up one belonging to some one else. Among the articles 1 found inside was a slip of paper, on which was written: Dearest I.lttla Mery—Meat me at the fountain tomorrow at 6 o'clock. 1 have tnarta all arrangements. Wa will t>e mar ried at tho rectory and take the evening train for B. Don’t let your fears got the better of you. Remember, 6 o'clock sharp I will ba there half an hour earlier. If you think you had better coma veiled osrry violets Your loving J. Fifteen years before I had received Juat such a note. Indeed, there wuh something similar lu the handwriting of the two missives. Then I had mur rlod a man whom I had been obliged to leave before the honeymoon was over. A sudden thought struck me. How would It do for me to keep this girl's appointment a trifle ahead of time. Im personate her, veiled and with violets? I could find out whether aho wan aliout to wreck her future or marry a true •nan. If the former. I might save her. At half past 4 I sallied forth, bought the violets of a street flower vender on the way and at a quarter to 5 entered the square. I knew well how to as sume a hesitating step, for fcrhad "beon there” before. On nearing the foun tain. looking out for J., 1 saw a man looking eagerly at the violets In my hand, but of an ago more sultablo to an elo]»cinent with me than n young girl. As I drew nearer something In his fncs and figure appeared familiar to me. Then I stopped, overpowered with astonishment. No, I was not mistaken. Ho w as the man who had boon my husband. Fif teen years make a marked difference In one’a appearance, and they had changed him more than they usually change men. I was now more than ever bent on playing the port. He Joined me, and in a whisper, as though 1 hnd lost iny i voice through excitement, 1 said: "Tako tne where we can talk. I have something to say to you." Ho replied that his auto was waiting on the street f and led the way there. I got In the [ auto, end ha ran it out of the town. "I sm not satisfied about this pre vious marriage of yours." I an Id. "Great honvenn! Haven't we gons over that sufficiently? You have heard my explanation, and the last time wo met you expressed yourself entirely satisfied." M T il/iti'l If l* A e In trl t K a t.l a m a on your wife. If wo were to havo trouble and separate I suppose you would lay all the blame on mo." He turned to look at mo as though taken aback at my words. He could not seo my face for my veil, but bis eyes were fixed on that as If they would pierce It. "You women are nil alike," the said presently. "We men no sooner stand you on your feet than you fall down again. Here at the Inst minute you are bringing up what I havo »*cen at such infinite pains to settle." "Tint, tell me. don’t you blame her?” "No, I don't. I blame myself rather than her. A newly wedded pair are like two persons floating down a tortu ous channel full of rocks and snags. It la the man’s part to keep his head and steer tbo l*oat. I supposed that honeymoons were always what tha name Implies. I found my wife a prey to all sorts of temporary cma* ! tlons—one moment loving, the next lr- 1 rltnble, the next hesitating, the next despondent.
