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.

Is,_-.be is hunting unless he has found
one or has died. The chances are In
favor of the latter, says Mr. Lawrence
Evart, the star In "We Ar? King." 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

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.

IF THC PRESIDENT IS
; Bresideut away It might; bp gneis<vl
that Washington would again be politely
dull. Hattliy. 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. Cullom lc303 no opr
portunlty to boom the speaker and as
, Cannon is a man too old for any yo.
litlcal ambition, beyond the senate it
, can be guessed that ho has no po)
