TOMMIE SLICK: THE LIFE OF A COUNTRY LA D, . HOW TOMMIK KT.tr-U XV Afi WBni niiT m TO BEGIN WITH-HE TBOBBLEg HIS OLDgCHOOL TEACHEE FROM THE STAKT. CHAPTER I. , TOMMIK SLICK'S SCHOOL DATS. Tommie Slick made an awkward beginning at school; but it was not long before he beg"au to catch on to ail t bat waa going on around him. Re soon learned bow to give the teacher the go-by. He soon learned to pfay all the games that the other boys played. In book he failed to do any good tor aw bile: however. be kept alorg with the majority of the ciass. In foiling bis laeuitie were peculiarly tlunt, but in arith metic -be wan better blessed and Wat. quick to ! am: Tom was a peculiar lad, tbougb, in most respects. His rrealel delight was to be among tbe boys. 11 did not teem to cart about taking part in conversations but preferred to be a silent listener. He did not listen for nothing for I e could alwats reproduce anv con versation wiib a marked degree of accuracy, lorn war better at relat ing somebody else s story than be waa at making oie ol bis own, yet bin mind was very vlaionarv. It W r - woutd take a book to tell tbe ops nd downs of Tom Slick while id this old field school. He watt there three years only; but duting that, time be made much history. In ibis cross road academy be met two characters that had much to do witb. bis Ian r lite. In Tiaui's class was a beautiful iltie blue-eyed girl with blonde hair and an extra large mouth. She lved about 4 miles from tbe school house in one direction and Tom ived ab iut two mile in tboopio- site direciiou. making 6 miles be tween tbem. But Torn bad seen his little girl time after time at church. H-r lanuly Attended tbe aame church tba Tom and bin grandmother attended. Though Tom bad seen her many timet he never bad seen her a be did after uieet- ng her in school. There he was in thesame clas. Slie had tbe fame kind t books lb -l Tom bad. She began tbe same day that Tom did. Sbe eat on tbe fame side of tbe school house that Tom sat ou. , Sbe bad rece at tbe same time that Tom did. Her name wat-S Hie and a true girl sbe was. She was as sharp an briar and as basbful as an old maid Sbe cared for nothing except her bookc. In make-up sbe was rather small but quite spry. While tbe rest of the girl played ' sbe studied her books. But ber voice bad a magic effect on our hero. When all tbe school worked and all was quiet you could, see Tom Slick'b eye' on Sallie She never thought of such a thing seturuing the ook. Sbe was tbe- shyest girl in the country. - Tom. too4 waa shy. He was particularly so about Sallie. He could tand to Look at ber all right but be could not bear for any oue to tease him a bo at ber. Time passed on and Tom and Sal lie learned fact; especially did she leara fast. Tom was stow to work and onoe at work be bad a capacity but ranch of it. At this bistorio old academy Tom met tbe only chum of bis life. In tbe school was a boy earned Henry Brown, who was some years older tban Tom. Henry Brown was ot a tpical anti bellum Southern planter family. His borne and all of bis surrounding were tvoical of tbe anti bellum data. His t'atber was a true Southern genile man of the old school and bis mother was as fine a type ol the anli-bellum Southern lady as could be found Henrv was one of many sons. He bad tullswav at bin home. He had horses to ride, dogs to hunt with I . 1 I IJ I- L ho a ail mai a uoy uouiu aaa ior Tbe older brothers bad grown up and. married off. Hsre and tbere you could see their bouses placed at aome distance away from tbe old borne. Henry was what tbe girls would call a aweet little fellow. He was handsome, even pretty. His face was plump and round and bis bair raven black. Henry was as gallant and polite as tbe Knights ot King Arthur's Round Table. In carriage be was most graceful; in converse tion he was truly fascinating. As soon as the ye fell upon this boy you were wou to bim. Almost like i magnet be could draw you to him. From tbe time that be quit bis skirts be waa quite a lad:.e man Henry and Tom became fast irieuds from tbe day on wbicb tbey met They botb loved the ou -door world. They botb disliked tbe grind of school life and both were boys of much common sense. Tbey botb emoved a tox bunt and botb were always in tor a horse race. In tbe winter, when mere boys, Tom and Henry woull bunt, from sun to bud, frtm Monday morning to Sat urday mubt. wben there was no school One day w th honnda tbey would bum rabbits and the next day with bird dogn they would hum partridges. It was a gay lite in deed. When summer came tbey would bunt tquirrels, swim and fish At the school they were together and when out of tcbool tbey were together. - Wi en you saw one you would see the other till tbey were 12 or 15 years old; At the age ot 0 Tom wan com pe'led to discontinue his courae at Bi bttol and go to bard work on the farm. Bi parents were not wealthy but good-livr. '-Tom took to work readily. He was devoted to tbe farm. He loved fineatok and took a pride in keeping tbe best in the country. But poof Ton the dy that bt carried his books borne he gave - BDKKOUSMGS ETC.-ABAD BOl iong and sad look at th little girl with blonde hair. He had nick named ber Suoahine a name that she bears to-day, Tom wa bitter ly afraid', f hr though she did effect him as did tbe refreshing rays ol sunshine. Ho 1. ft school without ever baviog panned words witb ber. Many a time had be looked at ber on tbe sl . Dava passed and months paused, and Tom was cut off from feeing his triends. Henry Brown came often wben ih busy seat-ons . were off. He aud Ttm were together a great deal. But no more could he see the little Sunshine, f his heart. , For five years Tom did not see her. About tbat time she moved to a far distant, cime and was lost to tbe lad on tbe farm. Near bv tbe home oi Tom's father a familv ol highly edu cated people lived, who bad but re cently came to the neighborhood. In tbe Jaroiiy was a pretty girl. She waa very handsome. Perchance this basbiul Tom met her and she treated bim so nice that be went time after time to see her. Then he waa about. 14 ears old. He took ber from place r.o place - behind tine horses and there began r.o get in hia heart a fooane for her company. Bui their associations were more ke I bat of brother and bister than otherwise. Tbey were thrown to gether much and -ach seemed to en joy it. Liiie waa sweet lo botb and neither oared tor anything. Tom wa.- s. ill' working on the aim. About, the time ho was 15 hia health tailed .dyepepia fasten ed its fa new uuuii his heretofore Der- ect body.N ' He began to grow pale and lean.' Hm parents became alarm- d and a doctor was consulted. hey all decided to send him to a certaii, school in tbie S ale where be. would.be compelled to bebave him self and take plenty of exerciee In be tall lorn, pocked up and went to college. 'I he day on whi b be left hr me he tipptd the scales at exactly 00 poundr; twenty t'aya . lalec lie weighed 120, and three n?oit In later be weighed 140. His health had been regained and he wca tbe same; boy that be was wben be -quit school. .Tbe mischievous spirit that urked in him began to crop ouc f alter be commenced to regain his health and flesh. He was again at bis old tricks. But when all else bad left his mind and Tom Slick came to a serious thought, it waa about tbe little girl with blue eyes thai he had niok-named Sunshine. He longed to write her but still be was afraid. When invitations ot any kiird were issued Tom always sent her one with his card. No doubt she thought it strange in him to do it. Now we will let a- room-mate of Tom tell ot bis college days. The writer accidentally rua up on Tom's roomtnate, and here- ia tbe story tbat he told: "Whea l entered col- ege at the age ot 18, I was the fifth man on tbe grounds, ibis couege having just begun, and this being tbe first term. Among the four boys that came in ahead of myself was a tough looking country lad of about 15 summers ' His face was bar a and. weather-beaten; his ibair coarse and unkep-. The boy lot ktd aa it II tbe world had gone back on him. He was clad in a plain every day suit of clothes and wot e a large brown bat tbat mashed his ears out ot shape. But beneath tbiis rugged ace and these coarse, heavy eye brows sparkled a bright-pair of eyes. There was much firmness in the ad's lips And his whole make-up showed determination. , Everybody noticed ibis grim, looking boy. He was called tbe quiet. asy, deter mined 'looking - fellow witb tbe large hat. I saw him first in tbe hall-way of the large, new -dormitory.' After scanning 'bim over and taking care not to allow bim to see me m the act. I went on to tbe room thai had been a isigned to me on tbe secod floor. In tbat room 1 saw a small, but well, bail', trunk with this name on 'it; 'Tommie Slick.' Soon the dooir knob turned and in stepped tbe 'Jgiy lad. My flesh crawled and n ty teetb came near chattering. He never opened bis month wben h came in. Straightway be wenu to the trunk, opened it aud taking a pistol from h's pocket, placed it in the tray. didn t know exact.ly what to do. But before I was aw are of tbe fact. said: How long have you been here? ' 1 trembled as I spoke. Hut to my surprise he said in ibe sweet est, mildest and most charmng voice: Only one day, sir. flay you just arrived? I answered him, yea. At once we began to talk free ly to each other and it was not long betorel discovered his uabealtuy condition. Too. I discovered in those once fierce Looking yea and sour lips all mat. wa- una ana clever. I seemed to melt away in front of bis beautiful eyes. Wben he began to talk, and talk he could witb ease and charm, bia face bright a aa - . i enea and losieaa ol oeiog ine grim. criminal like fellow tbat stood silent in the hall-way he looked like a boy with the heart of an agel. From thai day on Tommie Slick and myeelf were in the sme clashes during the day. in . the same room. driig ibe night, at the warn - table at meais, and at the same church on Sunday We talked together in tbe after noona It. wanot. long before 1 dis cTered ihat theie wan a treasure in my new friend.

Tbere set med to be some thing that troubled bim very much now nd then. Sometimes 1 would go out and return and find Tom writing.

Fair-sized crowds also greeted him at Charlevoix aud Beliaire, where ibe nominee made five min ute addi esses. Ho went over tbe same ground already covered by bim, also dilating upon tbe right of American people to oust iroru office by their franchise candidates who have pioved unworthy to coi.duct the government of ibe country. At Travers-s City Mr. Bryan ad dressed tbe ta'gest crowd be bad found in Micbigau. Tbere were few yellow badges worn by Republicans in tbe crowd, but the audience lor tbe most part was in sympathy witb tbe speaker and applauded and cheered bim during the thirty mii. utes he was there. He sard: "Sometimes when I am weary witb work and my voice shows signs ot wear, t ia encouraging for me t meet an audience like this and to be intormed by so many people thai I am all right. Applause nd cries of "You are ail right!" I don't know whether ycu mean that I am all right physically or politically.

Great applause. It ia necessary tor us to work. VV e have not so many great ii fluences at work lor us and therefore we have to do more work ourselves." There short stops at Walton and Manton, where Mr. Bryan stood -on tbe back platform .and allowed the people to gratify their desire to see bim. The cheering at Manton was Jed oy a little girl who turned on a man who wore a b;tt indicative of bia al legiance 10 tbe gold standard and sarcastically rebuked bim. Mr. Bryan remarhed tbat probably tbe little one could make a better argu ment ihan ibe ro!dite. to which tie Republican replied tbat no argu raentx were needed, but that money talked. Yes. it does," replied Mr. Bryan btii st does not vole." aud the crowd cheered tbe statement. Mr. Bryan addressed at -night in Grand Rapids one of tbe largest an dieuces be has yet spoken to during the campaign.' .

To the People Parly Vo'er- td tbe United State-: Your national eommilte indulged i Ibe bone tbat tbe patriotic action ol the People's party in the national convention, in subordinating tbe in interests o- the par y to tbe success of tbe vital issues mvolved in ibis campaign, woul 1 be m t by equally unse'fi'b devotion to as in tl e pre-. neni uemoeratie party, and tbat a I the friend ot silver could present a solid iront against the mm ion a of gre- by supporting one ticket, the oo operative ticket Bryan and Watson. But this hope being die app in ted, there were but two cour ses lelt, oue of which must be adop te. . First, to run a straight Bryan and Wasen electoral ticket in every state which, om ac un ot the fait are of tbe D mcra 10 party to sup port this liekei would Imve effected 'be same result in ibis campaign that would have followed the n initiation of a straight Populist tick et at St. L mis, namely, the election ofMcKiuley and the triumph of the gold standard. Tbe other course left open to your committee tbat was couisienl witb tbe action of tbe convention in nominating Mr. Bryan waa to do everything in its power to unite the voters of tbe country airainst; Mc- Kinley and to overcome the obst cles aud embarrassments, wbicb, it tbe Democratic party bad put tbe cause first and tbe party sec nnd. we would not have encountered. This could be aceompliabed only by arranging for a division of the electoral vote in every state possible ecurmgso many electors tor Bryan and Watson, and conoeoing so many to JHryan and Sewall. .At tbe open ing of the campaign this, under ihe circumnances, seemed the wisest course for your committee aud it is clearer today than ever tbat it waa the only safe and wise course if our votes were to be cast and made et- fcive for the releif of an oppressed and outraged peop! . . , Following this line of policy your committee bar -arranged electoral tickets in three fourths of tbe slate and will do all in its power to make the same arrangements in all of the states.
