The Baby By Mabel Herbert Urner LIVES TWELVE YEARS WITH FRACTURED SKULL New York, X. T., Oct. 2S. Corporal "William E. Richards has just discovered that his skull was fractured when the battleship Maine, on which he was an officer, was blown up in Havana harbor. At that time he thought he had sustained only a slight scalp wound and fought through the "war. A re cent examination -which -was made after he had suffered from Incessant headaches, disclosed the fracture. MOTHER OP A CHILD IS FORCED TO ATTEND SCHOOL Orange, X. J., Oct. 2S. Xew Jersey's educational laws are strict, as is prov en by a recent ruling here requiring that Mrs. Angel Virgilio, a 15 year old Italian woman, and mother of one child, attend school. The ruling was made by judge Bray, -who suspended sentence, but notified the woman that she must attend school until 17 years of age. ' THE thrill of motherhood. Helen tried hard to feel that when her baby was laid in her arms. But somehow, she couldn't. Her strongest feeling was one of uneasiness, of a nervous fear of hurting it. She could find no way of holding it comfort ably. However she placed it, it would man age to wriggle into some other position. She was afraid to sleep when it was be side her for fear she would turn over on -it. She had horrible visions of wak ing up and finding it smothered to death. It was so little, there seemed no way to keep it covered and yet keep its head out so it could breathe. She was glad the room was kept dim. She didn't want to see it again now. She had looked at it once and it had been so red and wrinkled that her feel ings had been almost one of repulsion. She nad told herself severely that it was a most unnatural and unmotherly feeling, but that had not changed it. Dreams and Reality. Her dream pictures had been of a golden-haired, blue-eyed baby the kind one sees on calendars and in in fant food advertisements. But this -was very different. There wasn't any hair at all, and its eyes were so squinted that iheir color couldn't be told. After the first look, she had turned her face to the wall witn a faint re quest to the nurse to take it away. The nurse naa triea 10 assure ner tnai an very new babies looked like that, that It took several weeks before they were ever pretty. And then Helen asked if "Warren had seen it. And when she was told he hadn't, she asked them to keep it from aim until it looked a little "different." For some reason she felt it was her fault, that its unattraclveness was a personal reflection on her. She won dered if she could ever grow to love it If it should always be ugly. The pos sibility of having a homely child had never occurred to her, so certain had she been that her baby would be beau tiful. And now 3Iothcr-Thoughts- Probably, after a while, it wouldn't be so red or so wrinkled, but its mouth had seemed so large and its gums so prominent. Could time change those things? From that one glimpse, deep , in her heart she could not believe that time would make of it a beautiful child, j If it had been a boy, its looks l wouldn't have mattered so much, just "Nurse," she called faintly, "bring me a hand glass." The nurse hurried to the" bed. "Why, you don't want a hand glass now, do you? Tou're not well enough " "What the Glass Showed. "I want a hand gloss and I want you to raise that blind by the bed so I can see." There was something in her voice that made the nurse think it would ex cite her less to humor her than to re fuse, so she brought the glass. Helen held it up before her face and examined each feature more critically than sue had ever examined them be fore. "Was she the cause of the baby's homeliness? "Warren's regular, clean cut features were unquestioned and hers? She had always thought her features were good; she had always been consid ered "very pretty." But perhaps that was because of her hair and her color ing. She remembered now she never took very good pictures, and, after all, pictures were the test of one's features. Her mouth? She had never thought it large before, but now, when vsha inougnt or the pictures and the baby's mouth Disillusion. She let the glass fall to the floor, hid her face in the pillow and burst into tears. The nurse bent over her in alarm. "Mrs. Curtis, Mrs. Curtis you mustn't cry like tnat. You'll start your fever again. And just because you look a little thin and pale. "Why, you'll be yourself in a week or so, if you don't make yourself sick again now." "Oh, no, no. It isn't because I'm thin or pale," sobbed Helen. "It's be cause ithe baby's no ugly, and it doesn't look like Warren, so it must look like me." The nurse had a sense of humor, and, in spite of her anxiety for her patient, she could not help smiling. But when Helen sobbed on would not be comforted, she became both impatient and alarmed. Warren had just come in, his face full of anx iety. "She's taken some absurd idea that the baby's ugly," tne nurse whispered hurriedly, "and that It resembles her. I can't do anything with her; see if you can. She mustn't cry like that, It will send her fever up again.'

Buffalo Bill was compelled to pay only a sideshow license here and the county received $10 for each of the two performances. little clothes she had made lacey gowns with blue ribbons. Blue ribbons on that crimson baby. "Xurse, don't use any of those little j dresses that have blue ribbons. I don't think blue would be very very becom ing to it now. The nurse promised, repressing a smile. "An'Ugly Little Girl." And then again she turned her face to the wall and began miserably to plan how sne would dress it if it were al ways an ugly little girl. At least she would have the judgment to dress it very plainly, to make it as Inconspicu ous as possible. She had always thought it ridiculous- to see ugly little children dressed up in all sorts of frills and fur- j belows. And then she thought of the family reunions and dinners at Warren's father's, when Carrie (Warren's sister) would bring her three beautiful chil dren. And she nad looked forward so proudly to taking her own beautiful baby; and now now, she would have to take an ugly little girl. Why should Carrie have lovely chil dren, If she could not? Carrie's hus band was not nearly as good looking as Warren. And Carrie herself at times she was almost plain. ' the doctor said so." Comforted Again. "Xot not with with tnat mouth. And your mouth is very good, so it must be mine," she sobbed brokenly. "As if you didn't have the dearest and most klssable little mouth in the world. And the baby will, too; It's only now while it has no teeth." "Oh, -will will teeth make a differ ence?" "Why, of course," catching at the note of hope in her voice. "Just wait and see. Why, the doctor says it's most beautifully formed in every way." And so he comforted her until her sobbing ceased and the dreaded temper ature was averted. "Oh, I suppose I am foolish," she ad- i mitted shyly a little later. "I was bothering myself with all kinds of thoughts planning how to dress it if it was an ugly little girl, and , thinking of the family dinners where arne s cnnuren wouiu an oe so muc' prettier." "You foolish, imaginative little thing,'' he laughed tenderly as he kissed her. "Dear, I hope the baby will have your mouth, your eyes, your hair everything but your imagination. 1 think she will be so much more com fortable without that." r- M - - i With the Exchanges WHO IS BUILDING THE FENCE? , The land in question is settled by men From Douglas (Ariz.)

From Laredo (Texas) Times. Discussing public health condifions, the Eagle Pass Guide has this to say: Laredo, Del Bio, El Paso and Eagle Pass should unite in an effort to have a bill passed by the incoming legisla ' ture providing for the state paying for the expense of preventing the spread of epidemics that come into this country from Mexico. Smallpox, for instance, brought to the border towns from Mexico, is a menace to the entire state, yet the bor- 1' der county has to bear all the expense in preventing the spreading of the disease and stamping it out. It is as much the concern of the entire state as it is the border town first discover ing the case, and the state should pay for it. o 1 bffgtct ftottry Fttd Marofectw b the worfd.

From Santa Fe Xew Mexican. Delegate Isidore Armijo suggests a compromise with Texas in the boun dary dispute; -that is the anexation of El Paso, Texas, in 'place of the strip on the eastern boundary and which in cludes Farwell and Texline. However, the danger Is that El Paso would an nex Xew Mexico and not Xew Mexico El Paso. The proposition to exchange El Paso, Texas, for the strip of Xew ilexico which Texas has annexed, without let or leave, but which It must now return to this territory, would be acceptable, it is believed, to the commonwealth. El Paso is really a part of Xew Mexico, and while its annexation would for a time endanger Republican supremacy, it is believed that the trend of the peo ple of the Pass City is toward the Re publican party. The assessment of El Paso city is more than a fourth that of the entire territory and the popula tion Is rapidly nearing the 50,000 mark. Of course, Texas will not seriously con sider the proposition, but it is logical, nevertheless. o THE BOUNDARY DISPUTE. From San Antonio Express. Texas and Xew Mexico are now en gaged in a boundary dispute which Is still friendly and altogether more or less uninteresting except for the facts It has developed with regard to the In accuracy of the actual and theoretical division lines between the two states. It is amusing that Xew Mexico should precipitate a boundary dispute. reasonable to assume they do in view of the fact that they settled in Texas. Presuming the land is to be given to Xew Mexico it merely means that Xew Mexico will administer Its govern mental affairs Instead of Texas. Xew Mexico cannot very well loot the ter ritory for the benefit of the state treasury. A boundary dispute between states merely disturbs conditions in the ter ritory threatened without benefiting or damaging either party to the contest. It recalls the numerous opinions expressed when expansion loomed up as a national Issue. Leaving aside all of the real issues in the question, a great many persons argued it pro and con on the assumption that the inhab itants of acquired foreign lands would be dispossessed and distribution of their goods made to someone possibly tho soldiers. o CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS. From Abilene (Texas) Reporter. Born in Xew York City in 1863, Rob ert M. Webb came to Texas in 1S81, and settled near Buffalo Pap. tboc the county seat of Taylor county. The j Texas & Pacific railroad onlv eaie west as far as Weatherford.in those days. He removed to Mitchell county in 1883, where he worked on the Van Tuyl ranch for some time. He was called to Xew York on the death of his mother and returned again In 1907 to Colorado City, where he has lived up to the present time. In 1899 he acquired the Colorado water owrks, which had been closed down for some time. Two years later he took over the Colorado Electrict Light & Power company, and in 1902 he organized the Texas & Pacific Tele phone company, building the exchanges in al the towns along the T. & p. rail road from Abilene to Big Springs, con necting them with toll lines. These three properties brought up from almost nothing are today worth over $150,000, of 'which h? owns a sub stantial interest, and his efficient man agement of these public utilities has been one of the strong points of Colo rado's success as a town of progress and civic pride. In 1902 he held his first political po sition, being appointed road overseer by the Mitchell county commissioners, and he gave Colorado the best cleaning up it has had before or since. In 1906 Mr. Webb was elected chair man of the county Republican organi zation. and two years later was pro moted "to the chairmanship of the dis trict organization, the largest district in the state. In 1908 he was elected president of the Commercial club, having been its secretary for a year. Mr. Webb is in HE next house of representatives will be almost exactly in even balance. The probabilities are slightly in favor of a Republican ma jority of two or three, but It Is impos sible to predict with certainty which of the two parties will organize the house, writes Edward E. Higglns in the Suc cess Magazine. There will be a large increase in the Democratic membership, but there will be no 'Democratic "landslide." The -explanation of this rather un expected result appears to be that the progressive wing of the Republican party has come into power at the pri maries in a very large proportion of the Republican districts, while in many of the districts where the stand-pat ele ment retains control of the Republican machine, the normal Republican plu ralities are so large that the stand-pat candidates are likely to succeed, al though by greatly reduced majorities. Both wings of the party are now dili gently engaged in their historic occu pation of "burying the hatchet." In other words, the heretofore gener ally expected Democratic success In the closer districts of the country has be"en put in jeopardj- by Ihe nomination of more or less popular insurgent Repub lican candidates, and Information re ceived by us indicates that there will be little Republican bolting in such districts. Result of Thorough Canvass. This, in brief, is the result of the exhaustive investigation of local polit ical conditions just made by Success Magazine among the membership of its auxiliary editorial board of life sub scribers. Xearly 15,000 out of 25,000 members have instantly responded to our requests for this information in a clear, specific, frank and most interest ing manner, and it is impossible to doubt the conclusions reached. The extraordinary closeness of this coming contest is shown by our predic tion that 168 districts will certainly be I represented by Democrats, and 21 more and I will probably be Democratic, giving a total reasonably sure Democratic mem bership of 189; while the Republican party will certainly elect 160 members and will probably elect 29 more, giving a reasonably sure total of 189 exactly the same number! There are 13 districts in the country in which there is so even a balance of probabilities that we cannot possibly predict the result without resorting to mere guesswork. These 13 districts, in which the balance of power of the next house will probably be settled, are the following: Thirteen Closest Districts. The 10th (Boston) district of Massa chusetts, now represented by a Demo crat (O'Connell), who won the last election by 4 votes only out of 35,000 cast. The 23rd (Albany) district of Xew York, now represented by. a Republican (Southwick), who won the last election by 5S5 votes out of 63,000 cast The 2nd Xew Jersey district, now represented by a Republican (Gardner), who won the last election by 3400 votes out of 45,000 cast. The 6th Indiana district, now repre sented by a Republican (Barnard), who won the last election by 1100 votes out of 55,000 cast. The 7th Indiana district, now repre sented by a Democrat (Korbly). who won the last election by only 6S3 votes out of 70,000 cast. The 9th Indiana district, now repre sented by a Democrat (Morrison), who won the last election by 1100 votes' out of 56,000 cast. The 11th Indiana district, now repre sented by a Democrat (Rauch), who won the last election by 1200 votes out of 53,000 cast. The 1st Michigan district, now repre sented by a Republican (Denby), who won the last election by 9000 votes out of 54,000 cast, but who will have a very hard fight for reelection. The 1st Iowa district, now represent ed: by a Republican (Kennedy), who won the last election by 1600 votes out of 36,000 cast. The 2nd Iowa district, now repre sented bv a Republican (Dawson), who won the last electton by 1900 votes out of 45,000 cast. The 6th Iowa district, now represent ed by a Republican (Kendall), who won the last election by less than 300 votes out of 49,000 cast. The 5th Xorth Carolina district, now represented by a Republican (More head), who won the last election by less than 200 votes out of 38,000 cast. The 8th Xorth Carolina district, now represented by a Republican (Cowles), who won the last election by 1400 votes out of 32,000 cast. Close Balance of Poncr. It will thus be seen that of these 13 doubtful districts four are now repre sented by Democrats and nine by Re publicans. The successful party will have to win seven of the 13 in order to control the house, assuming that our forecast in all other respects, is correct.-' The fact that the Republicans now have nine of the 13 doubtful dis tricts is the sole justification for ouri is little chance of iDemocratic success. Xevr JYork. Xew York is now represented by 26 Republicans and 11 Democrats. The j districts of representatives Foelker, Calder, Olcott, Southwick, Millington, Perkins and Fassett are doubtful, with probabilities, however, favoring the Republicans in all except the 23rd (Al bany) district, where there is a strong and growing feeling against the rule of "Boss Barnes," Representatives Mal by, Dwight, Payne, Fassett and Vree land, who are strong among the stand pat Republicans, and representative Fitzgerald, who led the Tammany forces supporting Cannon, are virtually cer tain of reelection, but by materially reduced majorities. In the 13th dis trict, now represented by Herbert Par sons, the contest will be especially close, with probabilities favoring Dem ocratic success. New Jersey. In Xew Jersey, the nomination by the Democrats of Woodrow Wilson, presi dent of Princeton college, is popular with both parties, and it is believed that he will sweep the stale and pos sibly carry with him a number of Dem ocratic candidates for congress. The state is now represented by seven Re publicans and three Democrats, and, as will be seen from our table, we find that in but two districts is Republican success quite certain. The Republican) majorities in many of the other dis- j trlcts are, however, so large, that In" J spite of the dissatisfaction with ring rule in Xew Jersey, the probabilities fa vor Republican success in three out of eight remaining districts. The one really doubtful district Is that of rep resentative Gardner, and representa tilve Loudenslager will also have a hard fight for reelection in spite of his 10,000 majority at the last election. Pennsylvania and Maryland. Pennsylvania shows little signs of Democratic or Republican-insurgent success, the standpaters being too strongly entrenched in power. The state Is at present represented by 27 Republicans and five Democrats, and this representation is not likely to be changed. In the 30th district, repre sented by John Dalzell, "there are strong evidences of the bitter factional fight pre'eeding his nomination, but it is lo cally believed that he will be elected, though by a greatly reduced plurality. In Maryland, the contest will be, as usual; exceedingly close. The Republi cans are expressing high hopes of gen eral success throughout the state, but our own information indicates that these hopes are not fully justified and that the probabilities are that the three present Democratic districts will re turn Democrats again, while the 3rd and 6th districts, which are now Re publican by majorities of less than 1000, will return Democrats. The 5th district will probaly still be Repub lican by a! narrow margin. Central and South. Xo changes are likely in the repre sentation of Virginia, West Virginia, or in the almost solid south, although the Republicans have strong hopes of capturing one or more representatives in Oklahoma, and the Democrats of sending a complete Democratic delega tion from South Carolina. In Ohio the Republicans are likely to lose three members. General Keifer in the 7th district will have a struggle for reelection, but probabilities are in his favor. Political conditions in Indiana are pretty chaotic. Senator Beveridge will have a strong support among the Dem ocrats. Representatives Barnard, Kor bly, Morrison and Rauch will have very hard fights for reelection. Represen tative Crumpacker will almost un doubtedly be reelected. In Kentucky, two or three districts whicn are at present Republican are likely to go Democratic Caleb Powers will probably be elected' in the 11 ih district, as the normal Republican ma jority is very large. Central West. In Wisconsin no changes are ''proba ble, although representative Cary will have a somewhat hard fight for re election, with the chances in his favor. In Minnesota, Sidney Anderson, who defeated representative Tawney at the primaries, may. have some diflculty In securing the "stand-pat" vote, and there is a little doubt of the reelection of representative Hammond (Demo crat) in the 2nd district; otherwise the state delegation is not likely to be changed. In Iowa, the result is doubtful in the 1st and 2nd' districts, represented at present by stand-pat Republicans, and in representative Kendall's district, the 6th. In the 8th district a Republican will quite surely take the place of representative Jamieson (Democrat) and representative Smith will have a hard fight for reelection in spite of a considerable normal Republican ma jority. In Miss.ouri the present Republican representatives in the 12th, 13th, 14th 15th and 16th districts are likely to be replaced by Democrats. In Xebraska, a Democrat will prob ably succeed representative HInshaw VF The Mere ThoughtE3 9 of Buying- a Dili- Wt M mond Shonld Sug- WW L gest Sllberr erg's Wr Scottish Rite Masons Shrin To purchase Masonic jewelry he-fore-first inspecting our splendid stock would be to make a mistake that is really inexcusable.

The Nameless Foundling Who May Be Governor ROMANTIC LIFE STORY OF HOOPER OF TENNESSEE. James A. Garfield once remarked that he never saw a ragged urchin without feeling that he ought to doff his hat. Beneath the jacket of an American boy, he asserted, may beat the heart of a future philosopher; un der his hat may throb the brain of a president that is to be. The country and Its opportunities certainly justtfy the exaltation of American you:n. Lincoln was-a rail splitter, Henry 'Wi' son a shoemaker, Andred Johnson a journeyman tailor , and Gen. X. P Banks began life Indentured as a "bobbin boy." They belong to one gen eration: Ben W. Hooper, of Xewport, Tenn., not far removed from Greenville, where Johnson got his political start, to another. Hooper in all human probability will be the next governor of Tennessee. And Hooper doesn't know his father'3 name; his mother is not even a mem ory. He was picked up on the streets of Knoxville, a waif; deserted by some body whose identity has never been re vealed. His earliest recollection is a picture of industrial life, for 40 years ago he figured in the statistical re-' ports of an orphan asylum as one of Its dependents. He was not an attratiie looking boyr but he was bright, a when he went out into the world to make his way he found a friend In. Capt. Hooper, who gave him a chance to get on. He studied law, was admit ted to the bar, and In due time was elevated to the bench, having legal' v assumed the name of his benefactor. If he should make good as governor of Tennessee, he will become a presiden tial possibility. Hooper's early start was not as pro pitious as that of either Lincoln or "Wilson or Johnson or Banks, for each of them had the advantage of a moth er's ministrations. It is not unusual to hear boys com plain that the present day Is niggard of opportunities, but with Beveridge, a farm hand, in the senate: with tho example of Johnson, the Minnesota statesman, whose mother was a wash erwoman, and with Hooper, the waif, an honored jurist and a potential gov ernor, it may be said that everything' depends now as it depended 50 year3 ago upon the quality and mettle of the boy himself. Philadelphia Telegraphy The Horror Of Living Death statement that the probabilities are J Jn the 4th district. Representative slightly in favor of a Republican ma jority of two or three. The extraordinarily close balancing of power between the two great parties of the country, as indicated by this, our preliminary forecast, can hardly fail, it would seem, to be of good cheer to both to the Democratic party because after many years it now has power al most within its grasp, and, to the De-' publican party because it is evident that the conditions are not so bad as has been generally believed. The field in Detcll. A brief survey of the entire country and of the important battle grounds In the coming contest will be of interest. I In Jew England, the Republicans have already, lost (by the early elec tion) two members in Maine. Repre sentative Sulloway's Xew Hampshire district is In debt, and the 10th Massa chusetts district, now represented by a Democrat, is also In doubt, as previous ly noted. In Rhode Island, representa tive Sheffield will probably fail of re election. In Connecticut there is a strong Democratic wave of revolt, but the Republican majorities in all dis tricts are large, and except for the 2nd (Representative Sperry's) district there Xorris, who -won his election two years ago by only 22 votes plurality, is strongly supported by both Republicans and Democrats and will almost surely be reelected. In the West. In Montana, the probabilities favor the return of a Democrat in place of representative Pray (Republican). The Pacific states (except Xevada) are almost solidly Republican, as usu al, except that in California the elec tion of a Democrat in the 4th district, to replace representative Kahn, Is prob able. One of the most interesting phenom ena disclosed by investigation is the large number of stalwart Cannon Republicans who have "seen a great light," and are either openly or sur reptitiously announcing to their con stituents that they will never again vote of "the old man." Of course, nothing in politics is more certain than that speaker Cannon will never again secure any considerable measure of party support for a renomination to the speakership, and. knowing this, many of his present supporters un doubtedly feel that they are entirelv safe in giving this pledge. Chicago Life imprisonment in the penitentiary was declared by judge Marcus Kavanaugh yesterday to be a more terrible punishment than hang ing. The jurist, in a remarkable opinion handed down In sentencing Josaph "Welcome to life imprisonment for mur der, contrasted death with the tortured soul of a life convict in his solitary cell and told the prisoner that it is not correct to regard the death pen alty as the most severe punishment that can be inflicted. In sentencing Welcome, judge Kava naugh said: ijTou committed a terrible crime. Your punishment Is to be more terri ble still.

CRIME IX AMERICA. A. Pogue, formerly of B! Paso, now of Wentworthville, Australia, sends The Herald a marked copy of the Syd new (N. S. "W.) Herald containing the following editorial "Nothing so much illustrates the vast difference between the morale of America and Australia as the extraor dinary disregard for the sanctity or power of the law in many parts of the United States. A few months ago the case of Carl Erington, a detective in the municipal sprvlne ivlin -n-oc- ii-r.v.,i u.xii 'i""uy wnn tne insur- at Newark, Ohio, sent a thrill of in- world.

"Such happenings are read with a sense of pity for the ineffective"ness of Uncle Sam's legal machinery. And with more than a tinge of satisfaction, that such things do not happen in this country. So accustomed are we to read of deeds of violence of this kind hap pening in America that we have come to associate this particular form of contempt for life, law, and order with nts. vr c o ror, :,... . .- : ..

More re markable still is the apparent useless ness of the machinery created for the maintenance of public order. "The explanation lies in the main in two directions. In the first place, the mixed character of the population lends itself to situations not likely to arise in countries whore the people are for the most part of one stock.
