Jephthah's Daughter:
-"^v- A Story of Patriarchal Times.
CHAPTER X.—(Continued.)
Now, the young man Adina, having
spent the night in ceaseless vigil also,
was at the casement of his window, be
fore the earliest streak of dawn, his
life-blood throbbing to the thought
that he was to see once more the form
of her whom his soul so greatly loved,
albeit speech and touch would be de
nied him. It had been the maiden's
.wish that she might not see him on
this fateful morning, less that the sight
of his unhappiness might cause her
fcourage to give way. Still it was
known to her the house wherein he
dwelt, and he waited with his soul
athirst, to see her make to him some
sign of parting as she passed beneath
the casement of his window. The blood
flew surging to his heart as the group
of maidens came in sight, their mourn
ing garments rosied o'er by the glory
of the rising sun, and their approach
heralded by the wailings of the people
who lined the streets on either side.
His face went deadly white, and he was
fain to clutch with both his hands at
the casement of the window to keep
from-falling back.
Onward she moved toward him, the
form that he was wont to fondle in his
arms, screened from his loving eyes by
those harsh draperies from which the
ashes fell, as the morning breezes
played about her. He was screened
from view behind a curtain, but the
resolution rushed upon him, that if she
turned and looked, for even one instant
•upward, he would throw the curtain
back and look at her, that shefanight
see the mighty love-light in his face,
and the compassion wherewith he pit
ied her. Strong man as he was it was
a bitter thing to bear that she should
go onward to suffering and death, and
he stand by, in bodily safety, and see
But Namarah looked not up, and as
she passed beneath his window, her
head was bent forward, and she walked
on calmly and as if in total uncon
sciousness of the dying heart that beat
60 near her. It seemed to him to be a
cruel thing, untender and unthought
ful, and Adina rent his clothes, and
turned away from the window with
great groans of anguish that made one
with the wailings of the people in the
streets. It almost seemed to him as
though he were nothing to her—as
though she loved him not, and thought
no more of him and of his love and
woe. He paced the room, with the long
strides of an angry beast, and ever and
anon great sobs, that brought with
fern- no soothing tears, shook mightily
is strong young breast. All the day
spent alone, in the anguish of his
stricken heart, fearing to go even unto
Jephthah, knowing that his presence
could be no comfort while that his
grief so mastered him but when even
ing was come he crept from the house,
unseen of any, and went silently to the
garden of Jephthah's house, that he
might once more be in the place that
had seen him so happy in the presence
of his soul's love. Still and deserted
was the garden, and the wan moon
looked down to-night with the same
cold face that she had turned upon the
far different scene of last night.
Adina wandered here and there among
the trees, but ever he came back to the
dear spot where lately he had stood
with Namarah in his arms. The brook
still babbled on, and the cooing of the
doves came ever to his ears, as if to
remind him that all was the same as
before, save that Namarah was gone.
Resting his two arifis against the
trunk of a great tree, he laid his face
upon them, shutting out the beautiful
garden-scene, in which the maiden was
not, and there he rested long in ex
ceeding bitterness of spirit. Suddenly
there was a sound of wings, and again
the bird which he could recognize by
its broken and injured plumage flew
down, and hovering above him a mo
ment, as if in doubt, came and nestled
on his shoulder.
Adina took it softly in his hands,
and turned his sad eyes silently toward
the house where he lived alone. EVen
yet he had not the courage to go to
Jephthah, but put it off until the mor
row. As he walked along, ever smooth
ing the bird's feathers with caressing
touches, he suddenly became aware of
something smooth and hard fastened
beneath its wing. Instantly the thought
'occurred to him that it might be a mes
sage from Namarah but how, indeed,
could it be so? Breathless with eager
ness, he reached his chamber, and
there found lights.
Carefully shutting himself in, and
even drawing the curtains of the win
dows close, he severed the cord that
held in place the little folded note, and
opening the sheet, read:
"Adina, My Beloved: I can give thee
no greeting as I pass thy window, but
I shall even then have close to my
breast the dove which is to bear this
my last message to thee. The mes
sage is but this, that thou hast heard
so often: I love thee, and I charge
thee, by that love, give not thyself to
Tieavy grief, but ever take courage and
have hope. If thou lovest me, I would
"have thee bear up with patience under
the heavy burden and to comfort my
father Jephthah. Pray ever for deliV'
era'nce for us both. Sorrow not, be
loved, seeing that I ever love thee, both
In this life and that which is to come.
And underneath she had written the
[•word "Mizpeh."
In reading these lines, the soul of
'Adina was greatly comforted, so that
Ihe felt anew courage come to him, and
•ever thereafter, until the two months
tarere come to an end, he bore himself
(patiently and submissively and mur
{mured no more. Each day that dawned
jsaw him beside the old man Jep'
Lining, comforting and cfii
was even at that same time sunk down
with weariness.
And after he had brought the white
dove home that night, it ever came to
him afterward of its own accord, flying
at sunset into his window and perch
ing there, if he was absent, until he
returned, and often he would take it
in his hands and talk to it, such words
as his frozen heart refused to utter
unto human ears, and ever it seemed
to give him greater comfort than any
human friend.
As the two months of absence of the
maiden Namarah began to draw to a
close, the soul of Adina grew each hour
more exceedingly sorrowful, and Jephj
thah also went heavily from morn till
evening and took no comfort save in
the presence and companionship of
Adina, who was become to him even as
his own son.
And when the eve of the return of
Namarah and her maidens was come,
all the people of Mizpeh were aware of
it, but so great was their sorrow for
the maiden, that they feared to look
upon her face, and as at set of sun the
children playing in the streets
brought news that the maidens were
returning, behold, the people gat them
to their houses, they and their chil
dren, that none might look upon Na
marah in her misery and her affliction.
And as Namarah and her maidens
made their way along the streets of
Mizpeh, behold, they made a picture
sad to see, for their garments of sack
cloth were torn and stained with their
sojourn in the wilderness of the moun
tains, and their feet were sore and
weary, and as Namarah walked first
among them, her companions uttered a
low wailing of distress. But the maid
en herself was silent and made no
sound, either with her voice or with
the worn-out sandals of her feet, but
ever moved noiselessly as a shadow,
with bent head and hands clasped
No human creature did they see.
The streets of Mizpeh were as unin
habited as were the mountain forests
they had left, and a vast and solemn
silence, more awful in this place of
many habitations than in the open
country, brooded over everything.
As they moved along in slow proces
sion, suddenly above their heads there
was the sound of wings, and a flock of
snow-white doves came downward
from high in the air, and, flying low,
preceded them with slow and steady
motions all up the empty streets. And
as men or women here or there
watched furtively from behind the
drawn curtains of their windows, this
most strange sight—the maidens in
their mourning garments preceded by
the flock of white doves—struck awe
unto their hearts. And added to the
sight there was a strange and awful
sound, for even as the maidens crooned
their low, sad wails, the doves from
their flight in the air joined to the
sound their plaintive cooing and com
To the other maidens it seemed as
but an accident that the birds should
meet and join themselves to the pro
cession but Namarah believed it not.
Her heart told her that her tenderly
loved birds had recognized her, and be
fore she reached the door of her father's
house one of them had even separated
from its companions, and circling a
moment, as if in doubt, above her head,
presently flew downward and alighted
on her shoulder. Then did Namarah
unclasp her hands and take it under
her cloak and press it against the
warmth of her heart and although
the feathers of its wings had grown
out again, and it was even smooth and
shapely and snow-white as the rest,
she knew it to be the messenger be
tween Adina and herself. Howbeit,
she knew not that it had earned a
stronger claim to her affection yet, in
that it had been the chief companion
and comfort of her lover during thr
long days and nights of her absence.

One Species Is Worth an Much at SI30
an Ounce.
"At this time of the year there is
plenty of work for the 1,200 girls who
put up seed packets in the numerous
wholesale flower houses in New York,"
says a correspondent. "Some of the
big houses take on hands early in Feb
ruary, but most of the girls do not find
steady employment until March and
April, when the demand for flower and
vegetable seeds is very large. Girls
make the best packers of seeds because
they are small fingered and alert, and
do the delicate work more expedi
tiously than men. Seed packets hold
anywhere from one-eighth of an
ounce up to one pound or more, and a
good hand will measure, fill and seal
up ready for shipment from 1,500 to
2,000 packets in an hour. The girls are
paid about 15 cents for each 1,000
packets they put up, and providing
they work steadily for eight hours,
they can earn from |1.75 to $2.50 per
day. The most expensive seeds that
are put up are petunias, the fancy,
newly grafted kind, and calciolaria. A
fine petunia seed is worth $25 an
ounce. It is as light and fine as chaff
or down, and must be handled very
carefully to avoid waste. Extra fine
grades of calciolaria and petunia seeds
are worth as much as $120 an ounce.
This may seem like a big price for
such a small quantity of seed, but the
greatest pains have to be taken to
raise these plants and prepare the seed
for market. In vegetables the most
costly we have to consider is the cauli
flower. This seed is worth from $25
to $30 a pound, and is put un and gen
erally sold.' in vt|

Shameless Profligacy of the Republican
Administration Starving the People
to Fatten the Purses of Political Heelers
of High and Low Degree.
Congress has adjourned, and the is
sues upon which the presidential elec
tion is to be fought in November have
been joined. Three years of McKin
ley's administration have proven that
the Republican leaders are drunk with
imperialism, mad with militarism,
profligate with government funds,
reckless in foreign relations, and cor
rupt in their dealings with corpora
tions. True only to the trusts, the
Republican party has abandoned the
constitution and the principles on
which this government was founded.
The Democratic party will appeal to
the country to bring the government
back to the paths of truth and sober
ness, to stop the radical and reckless
expenditure of public funds, to give an
honest and impartial enforcement of
the law, to bring the nation out of its
entangling foreign alliances and wars
of conquest into a condition of peace
and open-handed friendship with all
the world, to take steps toward remov
ing the dangerous control of the na
tion's finances from the national
banks, to pass laws that will curb the
trusts and take from them the special
privileges whereby they have grown
so great, and last, but not least, to
"turn the rascals out." On such a
platform, and under the leadership of
Bryan, the Republican party can be
swept from power in every branch of
the government by a combined, united
and harmonious opposition.
The most important and patriotic
duty of the Democratic party will be
to defeat the Republican ticket next
November. The details of reform in
administration can safely be trusted
to Bryan and of reform in the laws of
the congress which shall be elected
with him.
The country is more concerned in
bringing the government back to safe
and sound principles of administration
than in any single law which might be
enacted, however important such law
may be to the welfare of the country.
Honest administration of the govern
ment on constitutional lines is the
foundation upon which reform of the
law must be erected. No law, however
good and salutary, can be of avail un
less it is honestly administered. There
are good laws on the statute books
now which have become dead, letters at
the hands of the present administra
tion. The Kansas City convention will
give earnest of its purpose to meet the
demands of the country.
Every honest and patriotic citizen
wantB a clean government, whether he
be a Republican, Democrat or Popu
list. He wants an impartial applica
tion of the law. He wants an econom
ical expenditure of public funds. He
wants the public service to be free
from scandal and corruption. He wants
an equitable adjustment of taxation.
He still believes in the constitution.
He is opposed to a huge standing army
and to entangling foreign alliances.
He Is opposed to trusts and the spe
cial privileges which have created
McKinley has not given a clean ad
ministration. Hanna's political hench
men have filled the public offices, have
openly and flagrantly violated the civil
service law and have stolen public
funds. The Cuban scandals in the pos
tal service, in the customs service and
in the army are merely the surface in
dications of a corruption as wide
spread as the government itself.
Millions have been taken from the
public treasury under the flimsiest
gloss of regularity and legal form. No
one who know3 will attempt to deny
that political favorites were permitted
to make contracts for army and navy
supplies at prices out of all propor
tion to the value of the articles fur
nished. Scores of vessels were sold
to the government at three times their
actual value, with commissions to po
litical favorites quite equal to the price
which#went to the actual owners of
the vessels. Worse yet, legislation was
forced through congress, like the ar
mor trust grab, for the sole purpose of
furnishing Mark Hanna with a Re
publican campaign corruption fund of
millions. This notorious and flagrant
misuse of legislative power is alone
enough to condemn to political de
struction the party which has permit
ted it.
Taxation has been so adjusted as to
fall almost entirely upon the shoulders
of the laboring and producing masses
of the country, while wealth is prac
tically exempt from sharing in the
burden of government.
A general demand that taxation
should be reduced to a safe and con
servative basis has been refused, and
all signs indicate that expenditures
even in a time of peace will equal the
enormously heavy revenue now pro
duced. The appropriations for the
coming fiscal year are more than $709,
000,000. Had not certain important
appropriations been deferred, and had
not even the heavy appropriations
made been pared so much below the
actual requirements of the Republican
program that a heavy deficiency bill
will be necessary next winter, the ap
propriations would have been over
$800,000,000. Did these huge appro
priations return to the people in pub
lic benefits some fair share of the
money taken from them in the form of
taxes there might be less reason for
complaint, but the unfortunate fact re
mains that not one dollar in five is so
expended as to actually benefit the
taxpayer who contributed it.
Take for instance the $90,000,000 in
crease in army appropriations over the
figures for 1896. That is all to be
thrown into the Philippine rat hole,
where the entire trade of the United
States for the current fiscal year is
less than $3,000,000. The $35,000,000
in the naval expenditure will benefit a
few ship-building firms, who will di
vide with the armor plate trust enor
mous _proflts on their political con
a $32,000 000 Increase
bill. That goes
high and
teristic one, is found in the bill now
reposing on the Senate calendar with
a favorable report from the Republic
an majority of the judiciary commit
tee to increase the pay of all federal
judges from the chief justice of the
Supreme Court down. The chief jus
tice now gets $10,500. It is proposed
to give him $21,000 a year. The other
justices of the Supreme Court are to
have their pay doubled. Taking the
whole list, an increase of salary
amounting to half a million dollars
annually is to be put through.
The army reorganization bill, which
is hung up to see whether McKinley is
to be re-elected or not, involves an
increase of the standing army to G5,
000, with a trebling of the expense of
its maintenance. These are a few brief
samples of what a continuation of Re
publican control means to the taxpay
ers. The Democratic party will put
the issue squarely before the people.
The Republican newspapers have
been doing the people a real service by
publication of a map sent out by some
one of the imperialist committees—
very likely the Cuban annexation jun
ta of Washington—which map shows
how the United States has grown and
enlarged by Democratic expansion.
Louisiana is marked 'Democratic ex
pansion," and so is all of California,
Texas, Oregon, the Ga'dsden purchase
and Florida.
Cuba is also included in the list. It
is an instructive map. If we had one
of them we would publish it. Every
voter ought to see a copy and study it
carefully. By this map it is shown that
the present great area of the United
States of America is due entirely to
"Democratic expansion" save and
alone the original thirteen states and
Alaska. This is a record which the
Republican party dare not "point to
with pride." There was no "Repub
lican expansion" known until McKin
ley got in his work. The growth of
the United States so as to cover a large
part of the continent and include
homogeneous states working togeth
er in harmony has been due to the
Democratic party.
We are glad that the Republicans
have called attention to the fact that
the expansion we have known before
has practically all been "Democratic
expansion." This is a point we have
been making all along, but the Re
publicans refuse to acknowledge it.
President Schurman of the first Phil
ippine peace commission, acknowl
edged it. He was among the first
Republicans to declare that the expan
sion under this administration differs
in every essential from the expansion
of the Louisiana purchase. Then Sec
retary Root stated the distinction
Since then the administration has
acted entirely upon the theory that
expansion which Includes islands in
distant seas is entirely unlike the ex
pansion which the Democratic part
brought about. In fact,
akg it,
that the "Republican expansion'
1899 is entirely different from the
"Democratic expansion" which has
made ours a great and glorious nation.
The truth is that "Democratic ex
pansion" is in accord with the spirit
of our institutions, while "Republican
expansion," or imperialism, is along
the lines of European colonization.—
Sioux Falls Press.
There is something funereal in the
report that Senator Hanna has invited
the survivors of the first Republican
national convention, which nominated
Fremont for the presidency, to attend
this year's convention for the renom
ination of McKinley. Possibly the
veterans, who are fourteen in number,
so far as known—just escaping by one
the unlucky thirteen—are intended as
party pallbearers.
At any rate, whatever the motive of
the invitation, they can hardly fall to
be impressed by the difference between
the Republican party of 1856 and the
so-called Republican party of today.
However radical and revolutionary
Republican principles and policies may:
have been at that time, its member
ship was at least sincere, honest, self
sacrificing and nobly indifferent to
any effect upon their personal fortunes
of the political course which they
chose to adopt.
Today what will those veterans see?
A party which is the tool and mouth
piece of organized and oppressive capi-'
tal, which has no principle save sordid
gain and which is just as strenuously
bent on enslaving the white working
man as the Republicans of the Fre
mont convention were upon the lib
eration of the black slave.
There is no Republican party in the
sense of that party's origin and exist
ence under such leaders as Fremont,
Lincoln and Blaine. The party is now
the shadow of a name, while a vast
combination of trust and monopoly
has taken its place and masqueraded
in the garments of the mighty leaders
of the past. It is difficult to believe
that real Republicans, who attended
the birth of their party, can indorse
the usurpation of its name and history
by a corrupt and corrupting ring of
financial and industrial tyrants.
Many of the old Republicans who'
were sincere in their advocacy of hu
man equality are today in the ranks
of the Democracy, battling against the
trusts and their political agents, and
it will take more than a parade of
venerable survivors of the Fremont
convention to convince them that the
Philadelphia convention is a legiti
mate successor of that historic and
memorable gathering. New York

Lexington Common is in the form
of a triangle and stands nearly in the
center of the village. At the time of
the fight on April 19, 1775, it was an
open space and used as a drill ground
for the militia. Today it is a beautiful
park. At the southern end of the tri
angle is what is known as the Pulpit
monument, in the form of a granite
pedestal surmounted by an open Bible.
This monument stands on the site of
the first three churches built by the
colonists. Just behind it, properly
protected, is a thrifty elm which was
set out by Gen. Grant 25 years ago
on the centennial anniversary of the
battle. Near the northwest corner of
the Common is the Minute-men mon
ument, at the foot of which are buried
those killed in the battle. It is quaint
ly inscribed and bears the names of
those whose last resting place it
marks. In 1824 Lafayette was given
a public reception in front of this
monument, and fourteen survivors of
Capt. Parker's men shook hands with
him. Near the northeast corner of
the Common is a huge boulder mark
ing the place where Parker's men were
drawn up. Engraved on the boulder
is a musket and Capt. Parker's com
mand to his men.
The original church on the Common
had no steeple and a belfry was erect
ed near by. In 1761 a new belfry was
erected on Belfry hill, just to the west
of the Common. From this belfry rang
out the alarm on that memorable
morning 125 years ago. The belfry

The village of Lexington lies about
ten miles northwest of Boston. The
first settlement was made there in
1640 near the site of what afterwards
became known as the Buckman Tav
ern. There still remain in the village
several well-preserved houses which
were standing at the time of the bat
tle of Lexington 125 years ago. They
have been well cared for and have un
dergone little change. They add much
to the historic interest of the place
and are annually visited by thousands
of tourists. The local historical society
has placed tablets on them enumerat
ing the dates and facts of especial in
fires and go to bed. In 1797 it was
bought by a son of Capt. John Parker
.and removed to his homestead, re
maining there for nearly a century.
Then it was purchased by the Lex
ington Historical society, restored to
its original appearance and replaced
on Belfry hill.
Three buildings of great historical
interest stand one opposite each of the
three sides of the Common. To the
east is the Merriam House, known at
the time as the Buckman Tavern, the
(From which rang out the alarm on
the night of April 18, 1775, warning
the Americans that the British sol
diers were on their way from Bos
rendezvous of the minute-men. It
was fired on by the British regulars
and the bullet holes can still be seen.
To the west of the Common is the
Monroe house, built in 1728. A bullet
passed through the glass over the
door and imbedded itself in a bureau.
The bureau, bullet and all, is in the
possession of one of Monroe's descend
ants at Chicopee, Mass.
At the north of the Common is the
Harrington house,at the door of which
the original owner died with his head
in his wife's lap the morning of April
19,1775. I

with Rev. Jonas Clark in this house

John Adams, second president of the
United States, was a man of great
vigor and directness. He was the
most prominent advocate of the decla
ration of independence, in the Conti

tract, Daniel Webster utters what he
thinks might naturally have been Mr.
Adams' language while speaking on
this theme. Some of the members of
of congress were timid—afraid of
openly resisting the great power of
England. They are stimulated here,
by the most encouraging considera

the future as the sun in heaven. We

graves, our children will honor it.
They will celebrate it with thanksgiv

they will shed tears—copious, gushing
tears, not of subjection and slavery,
not of agony and distress, but of ex

I hope, in this life, I am now ready
here to stake upon it and I leave off
