Brownfield, of Fairmont, was a recent business visitor here. A SLY FOX. IN THE AUTUMN WOODS. From the Boston Transcript. I remember a day hi the autumn woods. Came the fitful gusts of rain at times, And the whirling, eddying, yellow leaves, Sibylline fluttered with fateful rhymes, The acorns rattled down from the , boughs Hid the gusts of rain afld the glimmer of leaves, And the moan of the wind was a minor song, Sweet song that for the summer grieves. , 1 was alone?yet was I alone? There came a sense of companionship Which dingers now that the yenrs have gone, AIM a song I loveu comes lu wy u(j. In the olden days dear spirits dwcl^, 1 Apart from the din, In the clUBky dells, ' Favorites they chese ot the human kind, And on them wrought entrancing spells: Such that their lives lasped into a dream t i Apart from the world wherein they 1 wrought, And, the melody of dear voices thrilled i The ebb and flow of their inmost thought. i Were their spirits there? I cannot say. But the yellow leaves and the gusts of rain, . And the fitful wind nnd the autumn trees, , 'And the hillside sloping down to the plain. . And I with them, all, in the autumn air, All of us seemed in the spacious hall .Of a spirit who loved each leaf as > it rell, Each leaf, each raindrop?who loved us all. i.- ATT.isrflj TTTPPF.n.

The dog whose name Is Sprig, was njy property until he took a flight Into die clouds by clinging to a hot air balloon. When last seen he was hanging on like a trick aeronaut and was proceeding over the forests with no Idea of letting go. Mr. Evart has a bungalow at Fallmouth Heights, Mass.. where on the 4th of July, he entertained some friends. During the evening he sent np some fireworks, but nn immense balloon of paper was overlooked. This was later found and Mr. Evart prepared it for flight, ^s there was considerable wind he tied a short rope underneath the fire box and to this attached a bit of wood. In this way he expected to steady the balloon until it was clear of the trees. About 9 o'clock In the evening the tin fire box under the balloon was filled with cotton and the cotton soaken with al?-11 ?.<,<. ?oa,1v 4ha olsn. tVUUi, VVUOli an nan icku; iuv uivu hoi was Ignited and soon the big- bag began to All with hot air. It tugged at Its moorings, swayed from side to side and careened this way and that until Mr. Evart cut It loose, Just at that moment one of the party who was playing with Sprig "sicked" him on the balloon. He said afterward that he did it Just to see what the dog would do. He found out. Sprig made one dive for the paper bag, missed it and caught the bit of rope In his teeth. His jaws fastened an instant later on the wood beneath and he began to shake the crosspiece as he would a rat. Mr. Evart was horrified, f6r an Instant he stood speechless. Then he shouted to the dog to let go, but Sprig wasn't that kind of a dog. His breeding told him to hang onto anything he once laid his Jaws to, and be clung to the stick as though his life depended on It. In the meantime the balloon headed north' by west, and borne by a strong wind, grew Bmaller and smaller, until it was a mere speck among the stars. .Mr. Evart had no idea how long his pet would be able to hang on, but he believed he would land safely, and the next morn Ing he started out to find Sprig. It would be pleasant to relnte that he found him, but he didn't. Although the search was conducted for three days, nothing was seen of the dog and no one living In the woods can give a clew as to bis whereabouts.

Most of the cabinet' officers will remain and the chief politician of them all?Secretary . Cortclyou?will be at his 'Seek "very soon after the . dedication of the M'1KInley monument at Canton hoxt Monday. Then we will have Elmer Dover here an a reeldent after October let. He remains, secretary of tic Republican National Committee and1 the bare fact that he haa planned to live In Washington this coming winter, after a two years residence In New York, means something to the wise men In pontics. Dover has always been disposed to the Taft ambl Hon and onlyt decllned ^the national management of the Tpft can^e forv.bo ' reason that Taft or some one hlghor, in party or family counsels -wolud not sdmlt any, concessions to Foraker In Ohio, This meant, of course, that the administration had In mind to crnch Foraker forever and that was uot considered good politics by Dover, who believes in the spirit of kindness tail concession In politics as wel^ as In dally life. There Is now a feeling that once Dover Is settled In Washington and receives eminent Republicans day by dny at the office of the naiicr.nl committee, there may he a. getting together of men who are both fond of Dover and devoted to Taft From now on it will be very interesting io watch the many conferences that will occur between Dover and the practical politicians from every State In the Union. Harry New, the chairmnn of the Republican National Committee, will be here for a visit prior to the meeting of the .committee in December, By the time thnt the comirtlitnA moalc Clover will - llflvo irr-l or hoard fron\ al the members and he will know as will the former Chairman Cortelyou, just what the committee members think of the next nation convention's probable action as rogards to a presidential condtdate. There Is a very strong feeling for ' Cortelyou In the committee and this Is well known to the Taft managers, who also know that the Cortelyou following Is not especially friendly to the [ Secretary of War. There Is, however, some consolation that the man n'wv | In the White House can control oven I those who personally, prefer Cortelyou to Taft as a presidential candidate. Those earnest Republicans who really want Roosevelt my enemies may force me to do some things that I do not wish to do. This remark r was made to Robert P. Porter, once director of the census, and now a hard working every day newspaner man. Porter tried to get an expression from the President as to a third ' term amj Roosevelt reiterated his or " iglnal determination not to be a can' dldate, but the sentence quoted was ' used In .connection with this rtate1 ment. That some of those who are 1 fighting the administration have made '' the President mad goes without sayI ing and he may feel Inclined to thko the nomination If only to crush these e who have aroused his anger. After t all lie is only human and If some exa cellent gentleman should say that i- Roosevelt could not he renominated It h lie wnntcil to be, he would be all the s more anxious to disprove the stateIt ment. There is some significance In the 9 statements of eminent men who go II to the White House and urge the B President that ti)e country really 8 wants him. These men get no satisfaction In the replies and then they give out the talk that If Roosevdt ? ... . . . - .. .i.. does actually uecune in um suwwiua of next week there will be a division ' of sentiment. It has become quite ;i 8 habit for men of real prominence to 8 first Interview for Roosevelt ami tnen >. to say a good word for Cannon, a Hughes, Taft, Knox, Fairbanks- and t- all othors who havo figured In presl8 dentlal gossip. Dixon, the new senator froni Montana, came out of the i, White House yesterday and was aske ed If bo thought Roosevelt would take i, another nomination replied, "I do :- not' "And if he can not help himI. self?" was the next query. "Such a i- thing seldom happens in American \ politics," was the answer. This Is I about the kind of stuff we got from i, day to day and honce all the cnndl dates are anxious to have sonio sort 1 of expression from Roosevelt that I- will turn the people to actual think , ing about a new man. With the many 1 talks given by Senator Culloiu, of 1111,, nols, in favor of Uncle Joe Cannon, we - are all familiar.
