Jim Lane pushed his dory off the dock, gathered up bis oars, and lastly turning the boat around, made with slow, even strokes for the rocky promontories, which guarded the entrance to the har bor. .A row of 10 minutes brought htm away from' the line of dancing yawls and - catboats, ' the stately schooners and gay yachts which studded the harbor, and full into view Of the broad expanse of the oeecn. - . x The day was warm and muggy, but off the ocean a fitful wind was blowing. The water was calm. Oc casionally a long swelling wave rolled 'jgver the rocks near the shore. "Jim rested on his oars, aad looked out over the miles of blue. The scene was lovely enough, but Jim's eyes were clouded, and in his mind was a very different picture from the one actually before him. It had happened only the night before. Ruby Lane, his cousin the girl he had played with, and loved all his life, the girl he bad been so sure of making bis wife, now that he had a good position, v and could support her Ruby, with- existence, had calmly told him that ho didn't carefc? him in "that way." aad didnt believe in cousins aurrying.

Xfew peo ple were-picnicking on tbe rocks. Jim could see them from the dory aad out on a little Island he could descry two figures sitting close to gether. Something familiar in the aspect of these two figures caused Jim to guide his boat in that direc tion. In a moment a red hat flash ed upon bis view. He pat bis hands before his eyes, the better to see. Ah. it was Ruby!

Once out in the ocean, he untied the boat and set it adrift! Then making a wide detour he beat all his energies to reach home be fore the storm. The tide was coming in, and al though the little island waa not cov ered by the tide, Jim knew that the waves washed her well in a storm, and anyone there would get a thor ough drenching and a good scare. Jim smiled grimly to himself. The storm was rapidly approach ing. . Gusts of wind ruffled the calm waters. The little boats ahead tossed uneasily.

The name is now used to designate tke small, delicately lavosed oysters, whether native or tics, have been men who won their fspurs to commercial affairs long before they took aa interest in things political. , Mark Hanna is a notable example. Prior to 18s tie was looked upon as a successful business man rather than as a pol itician, yet when he entered the field jk politics Hanna was able to defeat such veterans as Jos Man- ley of Maine, Piatt of New York, Quay of Pennsylvania and Clark- son of Iowa, What has been said of Hsnna is also true in the case of William F. Harrity. who was chairman of the Democratic na tional committee in 1892. Hd was known as Sybusineas man rather a politician. Many thought that Mr. Roosevelt made a mistake in 104 when he named George B. Cortelyou as head of the national committee, for the latter had no experience in the game of politics. his work having been confined en tirely to business and tbe govern ment service. But Cortelyou was a success. That the head of the national committee is a ticklish position goes, without saying. The chair man is ofttimes blamed for results quite beyond his control. A case In point is that of Senator Carter of Montana, who headed the Re publican National - committee In 1892, a year in which the tide had turned so strongly to the Demo crats that the best of politicians could never have diverted it Tbe problem of success in the management of national campaigns is divided into' three parts how to hold the vote of the rank and file of tire party and arouse their en thusiasm for the ticket; how to convert voters. 'from the other 'side as well as the greaVmass of inde pendents, and how toMake advan tage of tbe mistakes the other side Is liable to make. A Costly Error. The most, costly mistake that any party manager, was able to take advantage of was In the cam paign of 1884, when James G. Blaine, in reply to the greeting of the ministers, did .not immediately repudiate the speech of Dr. Burch- ard, characterizing the Democratic party as one of Rum, Romanism and Rebellion, It is true that the plumed Knight did so later on, but not before the Democratic mana gers had flooded the country with copies of the Burchard speech, by which time it was too late. To take advantage of the utterance of Gen eral Hancock characterizing the tariff as a local issue' helped to bring about bis defeat There are three ways of attain ing the results. The first In through mass meetings. Most lead ers claim that their value is lim ited to the arousing of enthusiasm of . the rank and file, that mass meetings ds not as a rule make votes. As evidence, it is pointed out that Mr. Bryan in his cam paigns had large ant enthusiastic audiences, many people coming to hear his oratory, although deter mined not to vote tor him. The : Ham second is through the distribution of campaign literature.. This means the speeches of party leaders, leaf lets on the issues and badges and "buttons with the party emblem and portraits and the names of the candidates. The third Is the inser tion of articles and editorials In the daily and weekly newspapers throughout the country. This is one of the most important and highly effectivvmethods. Much at tention is paid to it by party man agers. It came into vogue when the - tariff was an issue back in 1888. The controversy over free raw materials was then on. Both sides began to send the press arti-. cles on this subject and then on other issues. Getting the Dope. Tbe national committee is aided In its evork'by a campaign or ex ecutive committee. The informa tion on which the campaign is con ducted comes from two sources. First, from the managers them selves and those close to them po litically. As they are from every! section of the country their knowl edge collectively covers the 'entire field. It may be. stated as a gen eral proposition that each manager is presumed to be in charge of the Uon as to local eonditlout & L.r ed from the heads of local orT " isations. ; ?v' During the campaign. at jm however. Chairman Johnson afrS ' Democratic executive cobimZ revived the idea of having a trS ' representative In every elect' precinct throughout th. .ui States. Abram S. Hewitt orK? edit He did it to the canMsiarf 187 when managing the atnaZ1 of Samuel J. Tilden for preside? Mr. Hewitt had two sets of btaaki prepared for every election cinct One was a preliminary other a final canvass of voteY'Tht experiment, however, was not av tirely successful. For the im was found to be too voluminous ti' the national committee to assar take, hence the latter body eaatb' ue9 to depend upon the state sr. ganisation for news as to the site nation. Chairman Harrity did m ' to a great extent in the campsite.' of 1892. That year the infonnttist received by him was secant,; enough to enable a calcalatfea coming within two of the electoral' votes that G rover Cleveland rl" ceivsd. Three Kinds ef States. Fb campaign purposes thestitat are divided into two classes. Tst first are those that are doubtful, with chances favoring the ticket' Much attention is concentrated oi ' this class. There is usually eat, and somejtimes even more than est', member of the campaign commit, tee doing nothing but attending the campaign In each such sttta . In the days prior to election re ports several times a day are re ceived. The second class is of those that are doubtful, thoigt more apt to be carried j the op position. - The press bureau is usually com posed of two sets of men. Pint those .who do, nothing but read tat newspapers and magaslnes n search of campaign material. Tats work is both important and labst- ious. Tbe second class is of tst men who write the articles teat out for publication by the burets. During the campaign of 1900 the Republican headquarters in Csi- lcago bad seven men in its prtts ("bureau. Five were readers, while two got up the articles. The con- try weeklies get this matter in the shape ef patent insides the coun try dailies as stereotyped stuaV while proof sheets are mailed to. thi more important papers and are apt to undergo extensive revlsloa prior to publication.
