On the one hand he has the w 11 laid but poorly executed plans of a few Individuals and a newspaper to obtain control of the city government. These plans are now "well understood. They need not be elaborated. They present Fred W. Keller as candidate, for mayor with William Ilapp and the Tribune in the background. "What Is there in such a combina tion to appeal to the citizenship of any voter? It Is simply an aggrega tion of office and patronage seekers, who If successful expect to profit by utilizing their political power for Belflsh ends. On the other hand we have the nominees of a legitimate and regular ly organized party which by the votes of the people has been entrusted with the custody of the general govern ment In the belief that its principles and policies more nearly than those of any other party represent the pop ular will. The candidates on the democratic ticket are all men of good repute. Tho candidate for mayor, Patrick A. Joyce, 13 recognized in business circles as a man of ability and integrity. There Is not a man on the ticket who Is not well qualified to perform the duties of the position to which he as pires. Tho one ticket was nominated on a pretense of reform making a sordid motive. The other represents an or ganization of one-half or more of the citizens of . South Bend having the legitimate purpose of carrying out the Intent and meaning of the spirit cf the great American republic, to give the people honest and well adminis tered government. INVOLUTION' OF PEACE. Unlike the sanguine few who opti mistically look forward to universal peace as an event of the near future Viscount Haldane, lord high cham berlain of Great Britain is still unable to seo tho first tint of dawn. Ho may be profitably contrasted with Andrew Carnegie, the anti-type of the conservative lord chancellor. The one Is the calm, judicial critic who views events from the command ing eminence of a receptive but un convicted mind. The other is the promoter, who can see nothing but tho early fruition of his hopes. "It would be a very sanguine per Bon," he say?, "who can see the dawn of international peace. It is useless to look ahead toward the permanent cessation of war in the near future." But ho does not repudiate it. lie only discounts it. "Some day," he Fays, "wo must come to the realiza tion of tho fact that we can settle our differences In a better way that by quarreling with each other." Grant said after Appomattox, "Let us havo peace," but he was not the originator of the thought. The musty ages afford many similar examples of the Inate desire of mankind for the end of strife. Tho leaven of the millennium has been working in human natures from the tlmo strifo became an element of life. It cannot mature suddenly, but must havo its time. Yet may we not entertain the hope that as in the case of a dangerous malady tho mania for was is passing through tho crisis in these days of marvelously perfected implements? May not war, like the waves of the ocean, bo building up a barrier ainst itself which it cannot pass? the: value of a ron, Have you a pod, Mr. Man? Do you pometimes fret lest you should per manently lose sight of your knee? If bo, cheer up; it may sometimes be the means of doing you as good a turn as a generous paunch recently did to Charley Walters, down in Summit, N. J. Charley was a pressman working in New York. One day he caught his right forearm in the machinery. The flesh was stripped almost to the bone, though luckily the bone itself wasn't broken. The doctor said the arm would have to bo cut off. Charley fald he'd bo blessed if it would. Might as well lose his life and be done, he thought, as to lo?o that once strong right arm. So what did he do but change doctors. The second medico was one of theo nvw Tangled chaps not long fledged from the clinics the kind that are making the graybeards sit up and take notice. "Yes," he said, "it ought to be am putated. Dut there's a sporting chance to save it. if you ore same; though if you lose you may have to pay with your life." Charley was game, nil right. And this In what the doctor d!d: Right into the thick of Charley's fat pod he out a trenc h, laid the maim ed forearm. In it, sewed over tho flaps promisies to become as good as new. So you see even a pod may have its uses. Fortunately Charley's was big enough to stand the strain. l e got so that no one suspects my maiden emotions. I don't make a face or choke any longer." "Was that tne first time you were ever drunk then?" i "The first!" said Tommy. "The first! Nearer tho hundred 'and seventy-seventh and a few laglets be side." "I've got your number," said Rosa lie Le Grange. "There's a small mil lion like you. Let me tell you about yourself. Y'ou're young. You've got neither family nor girl here In New York. There's nothing for you to do nights but to meet the boys. An you begin to pour it down. The next thing you know, or don't know, you're drunk an uncomfortable. Ain't that so?" "Uncomfortable!" exclaimed Tom my North; "When I'm drunk? Wo man, I own New Y'ork! I have an op tion on the Hudson terminal and a mortgage on the Singer building. Of course, the next morning when I'm un-drunk, there's a pale Jerseyish cast over the face of things." This was the first time in his life that Tom my North had ever admitted a "hang- i over." lie used to tell his companions that hard liquor was his beefsteak. "Well, then I suppose there's no use askln'," went on Rosalie, "why you do it. It s because there s nothing else to do. Y'our play is to find some thing just as absorbin and as excit ln as liquor, but not quite so foolish." "Sure!" said Tommy. "The pot of trold at the end of the rainbow, or Captain Kidd's treasure. Anyhow. claims growing out or the civil war; I'm going away from here." are still unsettled.

The United States government will do what it can to protect the lives and property of Americans resident in Mexico, but there is a limit to what it can do In the way of pervention. Unless an armed force is maintain ed in Mexico it will be impossible to prevent Mexicans so disposed from killing Americans and destroying their property. About all It can do is to take measures to obtain redress. Redress doesn't help dead people though it may comfort their heirs, If they have the patience and longevity to await the settlement of their claims. War gives rise to many claims of this character, but governments are slow to recognize them. Some of the justed. Americans in Mexico can scarcely escape heavy property loss. They will be fortunate to get off with their lives. Though his presence in Mexico is a blessing to the people, by giving them employment and teaching them better ways of living, the gringo is not welcome there. Mexicans are envi ous of his success. In Sonora laws for the confiscation of lands held by aliens have been passed and. the act has stirred the government at Washington more than any other feature of the Mexican sit uation. Care will have to be taken that a precedent isn't established for the Japanese for their grivance in resisting California laws. Thesu conditions create complica tions that make the Mexican question a difficult one to handle. the rest of this week on me while you look around an if you think then that goin's the best way, then go." . Tommy North, inured to an atmos phere wherein none gives something for nothing, regarded . Rosalie Le Grange with a look in which grati tude struggled with suspicion. "Y'ou're thinkin'," respondtd Rosa lie, reaching out to seize his thought, "that this is just my play to fill my boardin'-house. Think it if you want to. But thU Is my proposition: you keep this room free until Monday, an j if you want, you can have it per manent at twelve a week, which is : what you paid Mrs. Moore." ! "I'm sure I'm much obliged," said! Tommy, suspicion departing. "I'll stay this week out, and make up my j mind." sensiDie, repnea nosane. l u send up towels and dinner's at six thirty." Now it happened that Just before Tommy North left his room for din ner that evening, an hour of solitary tnought had brought him to the na dir of his existence. Position gone reputation (as he thought) gone a charity guest in a boarding-house. For so, in his young melancholy, he translated the kindness of Rosalie Le Grange. Their conversation, reinforc ing his bad two days with his mother, had piled remorse on nis other miser ies. Ho did drink too. much. He was branded a drunkard; and no one wanted a drunkard. Vague ideas of beginning again in a new land float ed through his mind. The life was out of him; and when life has gono out of the soul in this fashion, the Lord of Life is ever waiting to enter and take possession. Which is by way of introducing Betsy-Barbara. We have taken little time to con sider Betsy-Barbara. Let us view her now, as she stands, dressed in a blue frock for dinner, tapping at Con stance's door. Betsy-Barbara's flesh and spirit were twenty-four; her heart was eighteen; her purpose was forty. In complexion, in such acces sories of complexion as eyes and hair, in the hidden soul, she was a white creature, light-shot. Whenever even the darkest ray touched her hair, U flickered with gold. In full sunshine, even hr brows and lashes glittered and twinkled. Her mouth was large and generously irregular, her nose was small and whimsically irreg lar; her violet eyes were as clear as pools. Why the regu larity of a Greek staue may go with absolute ugliness, and why tho regularity of a Green statue may go v.ith absolute uslincs.?, and why features which fail to matoh may pro duce real beauty, is a question too hard for you or mo or any other con nolssenur of beauty. Now Betsy Bartara, with a mouth all too large and a nose all too small and a pair of eyes which could not bo classified for size, was ravishlngly pretty. Of course, expression entered into the equation with Betsy-Barbara. She was eternally assuming a schoolmist ress sterness which made a piquant contrast with the fresh s.kin of her, the blue eyes of her, tho little pop corn teeth that made her half elf, half butterfly. And when, In her schoolmistress solicitude over her lis tener as over a bad boy she laugh ed, the world's whole merriment was in her laughter. Betsy-Barbara had not really laughed for many days now. But she was young; the tides of her life were flowing back. And p.a she stood there, waiting for Con sUnee to rise and open the door, her merriment took flame from some sleepy remark. In that precise psy chological moment, all planted by the fates, Tommy North came down tho hall on his way to dinner. The laugh arrested him dead. The gaslight was on her hair so that it tumbled over her head "like a heap of pulled mo lasses candy," he told himself. The door opened then. She vanished like a golden fairy caught in a mist of va por. A minute later. Tommy North was sitting in the dining-room at Rosa lie's right waiting for something. He found himself in a state of embarrass ment uncommon with him. What was he that he should talk to a decent girl? And would she know that he Was the branded? But when, a mo ment later, she trailed in behind Con stance like a luminous shadow, when Rosalie introduced them both by name, and when he recognized them as the women in the Hanska affair, one part of his embarrassment float ed away. Indeed, Constance herself did the simply tactful thing, by referring to the matter at once. The other board ers had not yet come; they were alone with Rosalie. "I am so glad," she said, "that they havo finally let you off, Mr. North. Nobody could have had any idea that you were guilty. It must have been a horrible experience." She stopped, and her eyes fixed on something across the room. "Horrible," she re peated. . "But everybody's going to get off casilv. Just as Mr. North did you wait!" said Betsy-Barbara, touching her hand with a consolin ? little pat. Now the others were come. Miss Harding acknowledged Tommy's pres ence with a lift of her eyes which said: "Well, you're out of your last scrape, aren't you?" Miss Jones was plainly thrilled by the proximity of this now famous personage; Professor Noll, lost in the metrical mastication of a new wheat-and-oats compound prepared by Rosalie, showed plainly his ignorance of the fact that Mr. North had been away at all.

All stories about whales and codfish balls originated here. In the olden days Nantucket raised potatoes to feed the whales. The taste of potatoes made them crazy for codfish.

Chapter III. All the next day they tramped and tramped until their feet were sore and their hearts weary. Where could the bell be? They asked the wood chucks! They inquired of tho fishes in the stream! They stopped to chat about the strange bell, with the nightingale and the sweet anemones. All had heard the bell. Surely they had. Though none could tell from whence Us sound came. At last, almost discouraged to the point of turning back, the little party decided to divide up, each going in a different direction. They bid farewell to each other and started off alone! Strange animals, they had never seen before, frightened the children. Almost impassable brambles tried the I patience of the king's son. Still they all kept on in the direction they had chosen, each wondering what the other had found or seen. They day waned. The shadows lengthened. The silvery moon slip ped, noiselessly, over the highest mountain top. And then the bell rang out as of old! They all heard it, though they were all in a different locality. At last it seemed as if thev could tell which way the sound came. They all turned toward it at the same moment and hurried forward as fast as they could run. It was in a dell, half hidden by twining vines and sweet-scented How ers! The dell was between two tall hills and there seemed to be only one road into its heart. The three children reached It first. They rushed, laughing, happy and al most breathless, down its narrow, winding way into the deep, deep dell. The bell was still pealing out Its glad some tones. On and on Into the dell owing vines mado the way almost impossible to see. "Look," cried one of the three chil dren as they came to a standstill in front of a strange, trelliced tower that seemed to rise up into the sky. "Sh-h-h." cried another. "Some one is ringing the big bell inside." They all looked and what do you think they saw. Why, thev saw a great, great bell. The bell swinging to and fro in an enclosed space inside the tower door. They crept up closer and peeped in, fearfully. Whom do you think they saw? A great, strong man? A monster with four heads? No, just a group of the busiest, cutest, queerest pigmies of fairyland you could imagine. They were the mysterious ringers. This was the secret. Why was the bell there? Why did the pigmies ring it every night? Why had no one ever found it before? Because It was a device of the fairies to help the children to remem ber to go home at darkness. Grown folks had always looked for It before. But when tho children sought it they found it, because it was for them. (The End.) Salesmanship is the greatest of all magic arts. The man who can turn raw ma terial into teal cash and oop a profit thereby is a wonrous wizard. He could make such wizards as Herman the Great kowtow or get out of the wlz business. Thero are more different varieties of salesmen than of this gear's neck ties. There's the brisk corner sales man who proffers you a paper of pins or a steel comb. And there's the salesman who un loads several billions of soggy rail road stock on the trustful public and with his ill-got percentages buys steam yachts and Koh-i-ncar diamond tiaras. These are sold him by equally skillful salesmen. And there's the traveling hustler who doesn't know discouragementi. even when it takes off its disguise of blue whiskers. He scours the country getting orders for firm like a squirrel in chestnut season. He keeps the mills running", he keeps thousands em ployed, he keeps hia boss in good humor and he keeps his expense ac count down as much as possible. In tho popular mind a traveling salesman wears futurist vests and carries many cigars in the pockets of same. The effect is like a tobacco crop on an acre of wall paper. He totes more baggage than a regi ment of infantry or a prima donna and ho knows all the funny riddles from up in the city. He can kid a blonde manicure or he can drape his feet on the roll-top of a corporation president with equal ease. But the novice who slaps a pros pective customer on the spinal cord or merrily taps his derby down over his ears Is likvly to rise quickly not In his profession, but throukh the window. Salesmanship is necessary to our civilization. Also to our happiness and culture. If it weren't for sales manship, our great opera? might re main unsung, our great paintings un heeded, our great plays unacted and our great novels but, alas, great novels don't keep up with the supply of pjsh-ahead salesmanship.
