A Rig Bunch of Italic-.. Talk about race suicide and such! The following press dispatch shows that Rooseveltism has not become obsolete. The dispatch asks: "If you were a railroad passenger conductor and were handed one-first class ticket for a 2000-mile trip for a mother and thirteen small children under five years of age, what would you do? This was the situation that was put up to a Milwaukee road conduc tor when Mrs. Frank Scott, of Alber ta, Canada, traveled over the Minne sota division on her way to join her husband, who had been fortunate in drawing one of the prize allotments of Uncle Sam's land in Oklahoma. The thirteen children consist of two pairs of twins and three sets of triplets, and all £helr names begin with "A." They'are Ashbel, Archer and Austin, tho oldest 4 1-2 years; Arthur and Arnold, twins; Allen, Al vin and Alm/on, triplets; Albert, Al bion and Abel, triplets, and one pair of twins not strong enough to carry a name yet. The. conductor was puzzled, but the /rules printed upon the ticket called for fre transportation of children under five years when ac companied by someone in charge, so he had to accept gracefully. Ex pressing a doubt, however, as to the remarkable story, he was met with prompt proof, for Mrs. Scott dug down Into a valise and produced the family Bible with all the names duly recorded ln the same order which j she had so glibly pronounced.— Ex. l lum 1 ree By DAVID GBAHAM PHILLIPS Author of "The Co»t," "The Deluge," etc. Copyri«hled 1906, by Robb-M-rrOI Co. CHAPTER XXXIII. A "gpaam of Virtue." I forced upon Goodrich my place as chairman of the national committee and went abroad with my daughters. We stayed there until Scarborough was inaugurated. He had got his nomination from a convention of men who hated and feared him, but who dared not flout the people and fling away victory; he bad got his election apcanun ma nenectlons from our re*. ;| In the doubtful states far "Vi '• Kneed Goodrich's extensive purr), _ there with the huge campaign-fund of the Interests. The wheel-horse, Parti sanship, had broken down, and the leader. Plutocracy, could not draw the chariot to victory alone. As soon as the election was over, our people began to cable me to come home and t_.U3 charge. But I wait- .1 until Woodruff and my other faithful lieutenant, had thoroughly convinced all the officer! of the machine how desperate Its plight was, and thai I alone could repair and restore, and that I could do It only If absolute control were given me. When the ship reached quarantine Woodruff came aboard; and. not having seen him In many nionths, I was able to see, and was startled by, the contrast between the Doc Woodruff 1 had met on the train more years before than I cared to cast up, and the United States Senator Woodruff, high in the councils of the party and high In the esteem of Its partisans among the people. He was saying: "You can have anything you want, senator," and so on. Hut I was thinking of him, of the vicissitudes of politics, of the unending struggle of the foul stream to purify itself, to sink or to saturate its mud. For we ought to to forget that if the clear water is saturated with mud, also the mud is saturated with clear water. A week or so after I resumed the chairmanship, Scaroorougb invited me to lunch alone with him at the White House. When I had seen him, four years before, Just, after his da feat, he was in high spirits and looked a youth. Now it depressed me, but gave me no surprise, to find him worn and overcast by that tragic sadness which canopies every one of the seats of the mighty. "1 fear, Mr. President," said i, "you are finding the' men who will help you to carry out your ideas as rare as I once warned you they were." "Not rare," was his answer, "but hard to get at through the throngs of Baal-worshipers that have descended upon me and are trying to hedge me in." "Fortunately, you are free from political and social entanglements," said I. with ironic intent He laughed with only a slightly con cealed bitterness, "From political em tanglements—yes," said he. "But not from social tolls. Ever since' 1 have been In national life, my wife and I have held ourselves socially aloof, be cause those with whom we would naturally and even inevitably asso ciate would be precisely those who Would some' .lay beset me for immun ities and favors. And how can one hold to a course of any sort of justice, If doing bo means assailing all one's friends and their friends and rela tives? For who are the offenders? They are of the rich, of the successful, of the clever, of the socially agreeable and charming. And how can one en force justice against one's dinner com panions and in favor Of whom? Of the people, voiceless, distant, un known to one. Personal friendship on the one side: on the other, an ab straction." "I should not class you among those likely to yield many inches to the bo cial bribe." said I. "That is pleasant, out not candid," replied he with his simple directness. '.'No. man of your experience could fail to know that the social bribe is the arch-corrupter, the' mi" briber whom it is not In human nature to resist. Hut, as 1 was saying, to my amazement, In spite of my wife's precautions and y ww "Let Us Help Each Other." mine, I find myself besetand with what devilish lnsldlousness! When ! it use, simply to save myself from flagrant treachery to my obligations of duty, I find myself seeming, even to my wife and to myself, churlish and priggish; Pharisaical, in the loath some attitude of a moral poseur. Com mon honesty, in presence of this so cial bribe, takes on the sneaking seeming of rottenest hypocrisy. It Im Indeed hard to get through and to get at the men I want and need, and must and will have." "Impossible," said I. "And if you could get at them, and If the senate would let you put them where they seem to you to belong, the temptation would be too much for them. The* too would soon become worship ers, the more assiduous for their long abstinence." "Some," he admitted, "perhaps most. But at least a few would stand the test and Just one such would re pay and Justify all the labor of all the search. The trouble with you pessimists la that you don't take our ancestry into, account. Man isn't a falling angel, but a rising animal. So, every Impulse toward the decent, every gleam of light. Is a tromendona gain. The wonder isn't tho bad but the good, Isn't that we are so Imper fect, but that in such a few thousand years we've got so far—so far up. I know you and I have in the main the same purpose—where Is there a man who'd like to think tie world the worse for bis having lived? But we work by different means. You believe the best results can be got through that in man which he has Inherited from the past—by balancing passion against passion, by offsetting appetite with appetite. 1 hope for results from that In the man of to-day which is the seed, the prophecy, of the man who li to be." "Your method has had one recent and very striking apparent success," said I. "Hut— the spasm of virtue will pass." "Certainly," he replied, "and so too will the succeeding spasm of reaction. Also, your party must Improve Itself —and mine, too— the result of this spasm of virtue." "For a time," I admitted. "I envy you your courage and hope. Hut 1 can't share ln them. You will serve four stormy years; you will retire with friends less devoted and enemies more bitter; you will be misunder stood, maligned; and there's only a remote possibility that your vindica tion will come before you are too old to be offered a second term. And the harvest from the best you sow will be ruined in some Hood of reaction." "No," he answered. "It will be reaped. The evil I do, all evil, passes. The good will bo reaped. Nothing good is lost" "And if it Is reaper'," I rejoined, "the reaping will not come until long, long after you are a mere name in history a Even as I spoke my doubts I was wishing I had kept them to myself; for. thought I, there's no poorer busi ness than shooting at the beautiful soaring bird of illusion. Hut ho was looking at me without seeing me. His expression suggested the throwing open of the blinds hiding a man's in most self. "If .i man," said he absently, "fixes his mind not on making friends or de feating enemies, tun on elections or on history, but just on avoiding from day to day. from act to act, the condemn* tion of his own self-respect— " The blinds closed as suddenly as they had opened he had become conscious that some one was looking In. And I was Wishing again that 1 had kept my doubts to myself; lor 1 now saw that what 1 had thought a bright bird of Illusion was in fact, the lost star which lighted my own youth. Happy the man who, through strength or through luck, guides his whole life by the star of his youth. Happy, but how rare! CHAPTER XXXIV. - "Let Us Help Each Other." In the folowlng September I took my daughters to Elizabeth. She looked earnestly, first at Frances, tall and slim and fancying herself a wom an grown, then at Ellen, short and round and struggling with the gig gling age. "We shall like each other, I'm sure," was her verdict. "We'll get on well together." And Frances smiled, and Ellen nodded. They evi dently thought so, too. "I want you to teach them your art," said I, when they were gone to settle themselves and she and I were alone. "My art?" "The art of being one's self. I am sick of men anil women who hide their real selves behind a pose of what they want others to think them "Most of our troubles come from that, don't they?" "All mine did," said I. "I am at the age when the very word age bo gins to jar on the ear, and the net re sult of my years of effort Is — I have convinced other people that I am somebody at the cost of convincing myself that I am nobody." "No, you are master," she said. "As a lion-tamer Is master of hie lions. He gives all his thought to them, who think only of their appe tites. And his whole reward is that with his life in his hand he can some times cow them through a few worth less little tricks." I looked round the attractive reception-room of the school. "I wish you'd take ma In, too ' 1 ended. She flushed a little, then shook b<jr head, her eyes twinkling. "This ta not a reformatory," said she. And we both laughed. As I did not speak or look away, but continued to smile at her, she tie came uneasy, glanced round as <f seeking an avenue of retreat. "Yes —I mean Just that, Elizabeth " I admitted, and ray tone explained tl.e words. She clasped her hands and started up. "In me—ln every one," I went .>_, "there's a beast and a man. Just now — with me— man Is uppermost. And he wants to stay uppermost. Elizabeth — will youhelp him?" She lowered her head until I could see only the splendor of her thick hair, sparkling like black quartz. ' "Will you—dear? Won't you— dear?" Suddenly she gave me both her hands. "Let us help each other," she said. And slowly she lifted her glance to mine; and never before had I felt the full glory of those eyes, the full melody of that deep voice. And so, I end as I began, as life begins and ends — with a woman. In a woman's arms we enter life; In a woman's arms we get the courage and strength to bear it; in a woman's arms we leave it. And as for the span between — the business, profession, career —how colorless, how meaning less It would be but for herl THE KUD. N. P.
