P^T THE PATHETIC STORY OF A GIRL.
W": TICKED FROM FAIRMONT.
. -
; r ' "Wheeling Sunday News.]
>' ' "From Fairmont to Benwood Junction."
The above was the inscription on a
small bit of cardboard that was attached
to the waist of Maggie Morris,
- a. little tot of not more than six years
of age who arrived in Benwood Fridaynight.
She had been placed aboard a
railroad train at Fairont by some one
unknown. She is now in the Humane
i Society's shelter on Twenty-ninth
street.
Pretty little Miss Morris arrived
in Benwood and found no one at the
station at the Junction awaiting her
arrival. In fact there was no one who
knew her at all. She was noticed
standing on the platform by the trainmen
and they inquired as to where
she was going. She seemed badly
frightened and commenced to cry.

of South Benwood, but of no relation j
to the little girl, took pity on her
and took charge of her. He kept her ]
at his home all night Friday and the
ry matter was reported to the Benwood
police, who in turn notified Humane
Officer Darrah, of this city. Satur?,
day Officer Darrah went to Benwood,
took charge of the little one and
brought her to Wheeling and placed
her in one of the homes here.
Famielies Want Her.
There were at least two Benwood
families who made applications for
the child, but the Human officer will
make a thorough overhauling before |
anything definite will be done, it is I
his intention to ascertain who it was
that placed the child aboard the train j
at Fairmont.
The child has a very pretty face
and was neatly dressed. She carried j
a small bundle of clothing and it too j
had a tag on it marked with her name.
She said her name was Maggie Mor- I
ris but more than that could not be
gotten out of her. If she was sent
to the home of relatives in Ben wood
they had not been not ified of her coming,
and no one had claimed iter tin
to late Saturday.
One of the trainmen "stated that, she
was placed on the train by a man. it
was some little time after the train
had started that she was noticed by
the conductor nestled in the corner
of one of the big seats with the little
bundle of clothing alongside of her.

ROOSEVELT AND
THE DEMOCRATIC
OPPORTUNITY
From a Democratic Point of
View?The New York
World Sounds a Note
of Warning and Gives
Some Advice,
There should he no misconception in
the minds of the Democrats as to the
strength of the ticket nominated at
Chicago last week.
President Roosevelt is greatly admired
by the young, progressive and
aggressive elements of his party.
They like his daring, his dash, his
'contempt for precedents, his masterful
way of bending the party bosses
to his will, his defiance and subsequent
placating of the Wall street
magnates. His nomination represents
the will of the Republican voters.
nowever aistasteiui it may . oe to
the "old war-horses" ami government
mules of the party.
Senator Fairbanks is the precise opposite
of .Mr. Roosevelt iu character
and temperament. Cool, cautious,
slow, conservative, he furnishes an
admirable foil for the impetuous head
of the ticket. And lie lives, too. in a
State whose electoral votes may be
essential to the success of the Democratic
candidates.
The organization of the Republican
party for effective caxnpaigji work must
be accepted as most efficient. Though
Hanna and Quay are gone, the party
in power is strong in experienced and
skillful politicians. Perhaps t he ablest j
of them all sits in the White House
! and will direct the campaign through
: his trusted lieutenant Cortelyou. who
is a master of detail. There will he
! no lack of money. The whole body
! of officeholders will be auxiliaries in
the campaign, each one anxious to
leiani his piace. lciken as a wnoie
the country is still fairly prosperous,
and the appeal to "let. well enough
alone" will not be without force.
And yet the administration and its
party are vulnerable to attack at* vital
points. They promise no reform of
the monopoly-promoting: and trustsheltering
tariff. They make a mockery
of President ??IcK in ley's reciprocity.
The President has procured the
annulment of a great railroad merger.
but the robberies of no monopoly
controlling the necessaries of life has
been interfered with. The. platform
contains not the remotest pledge of
I putting an end to the violation of the
Declaration of Independence in the
subjection of the Filipinos. The
speakers at Chicago glorified the President
for his bullying "big-stick" attitude
toward the weaker American
republics. His usurpation of the power
of Congress in the matter of granting
pensions is extolled. The extravagance
in appropriations which increased
the cost of government from $1,T17,000,000
under Harrison and $1,309,
000,000 under Cleveland to $iM 49,000,000
under Roosevelt is covered with
the mantle of silence. The half re- |
vealed and inadequately punished |
stealings in the Postofhce Department I
invite another campaign cry to "Turn
the rascals out!"
Yet though there is the promise
and potency of a powerful opposition
iti these and other issues, only the
wisest action by the St. Louis convention
can make them effective. Strong
as President Roosevelt is in some respects,
and firmly intrenched in power
as his party is, the Democrats have
at least, a fighting chance to win.
But to improve this chaiice the St..
Louis convention must not only nominate
a "sane and safe" candidate on
a rational platform, but it must purge
itself of r h O nrwl u-rnncrc x.r>,!r.K
ir will condemn in the Republicans.
It cannot expect that the country will
take seriously a denunciation of "the
j money power" if it. shall admit delegates
whose seats were notoriously
' bought. The cry ol' "plutocracy"
against the Republicans will lie ridiculous
and impotent from a convention
1 influenced in any degree by mercenaries.
The defeat of President Roosevelt
| is not impossible, but it is fraught
| with so many difficulties that the
I only chance of the Deocrats to accomplish
it lies in the nomination of
his complete antithesis for President,
in the '"adopt ion of a platform sound
In every plan'., in the emphatic repudiation
of all boodlers and self-seekers,
and the final severing of the fatal al
Iiance with Populists and Socialists,

RHYME AND REASON
There isn't any reason for the flowers
blooming sweet
To wither at the noonday or be crushed
beneath our feet.
There isn't any reason for the sky to
be so blue
Nor for sunbeams to be dancing
where the leaves their shadows
strew.
The bee is making melody in cadence
long and low,
The birds are lightly singing as they
hurry to and fro;
And joy is set to meter in the lazy
summer time.
There isn t any reason; tnere is notning,
only rhyme.
The river as it ripples on its journey
to the sea.
Makes music that we cannot sing, yet
sweet as it can be.
The rustle of the tree tops as the
zephyrs wander by
Awake the woods to answer with a
long melodious sigh.
And when the stars are gleaming and
the moon is shining bright
A thousand minstrel voices softly
echo through the night,
And no one understands the spell
that's cast throughout the
clime,
There isn't any reason-; there is nothing
only rhyme.
?Washington Star.
One fact is worth a ton of argument.
It's a fact that Hall's ice
cream is the best. - x
