No one can say that Chairman Hllles did not do his best, but as a forecaster . he do-s not shine. Though the chance to subscribe to the campaign Is passed, you can soon buy lied Cross stamps. St. Iyuls has elected Billy lgoe to congress. When his opponent goes out Hilly can say lgoe in. Armour & Co. have been again. Between indictments, they get a chance to sleep? Indicted bow do The final rally 1s over. Now the peo ple will settle back and attend to bus iness, Junt as if nothing had happened. Governor WilHon is the only candi date that carried his own state. What Is more to the point is that he carried the states of his opponents. And now Mr. Funk thinks he sees a chance to be felted States senator. Get a man's aspirations started high In politics and there is no telling where his ambitions will end. The Eighteenth street organ Just simply cannot get over Its soreheaded ness. It Is even vexed because the democrats In all good humor smiled j upou it as they marched by Saturday night, and the said organ forthwith has become real nasty. Themost lament-' able fiature of any flection is the spectacle of the poor loot r. A IXN; TIME MET WEEN' . For the first time In CO years Maine was carried by the democratic candi date for president. Never since the orcanization of their party have the republicans lost the State. The last democrat to carry It was Franklin Pierce, in is,',2. the year of a democratic landslide, when Pierce received 2.14 -l-ctrraI votes and Gen eral Scott only 42. The only states not carried by Pierce ; that year were Massachusetts. Ver mont, Tennessee and Kentucky. MARTIN J. IX 1.1,4 tN CANDIDATE rim HiKAKi:it. Martin J. Dillon of Galena, who has been chosen for the third time to rep resent his district In the lower house, will be a candidate for the speaker ship. He Is well fitted for the place In that he is well versed In parliamen tary law. Is familiar with the rules and has decided executive ability. He senr-. ed in the past two legislatures with distinction and made a record for hon esty and uprightness. Mr. Dillon's platform as a candidate for the speakership Is an attractive one. H. maintains that the demo crats. If they control the house, should adopt the plan adopted by the demo crats lu congress, and that Is that the house committees be made up In a caucus, subject to final approval by Governor Dunne. He also favors a rule that all measures referred to the com- n.itw h ,r.,.,.A , . v "vmu tut rr 1 1 oiii, euuer favorably or adversely, within a rea- sonable time. This program, if adopted, will pre vent the smothering of bills and the de laying of measures until the final hours. Instead of a few shaping legislation, It wi;i be shaped by the entire house. Mr. Dillon s program Is progressive and constructive and in 1-ne with the heat thought of the hour. ! THE TR.CE SOI.CTIOX. "Could Europe be brought to accept the accomplished fact of the conquest of European Turkey by the Balkan Jlies, and to acknowledge a united' Balkan confederation, it would spare Itself much trouble, present and fu ture," the Minneapolis Journal says. Tfer the real solution of the Balkan problem cannot be found in any divis ion between two or more powers of tl e area of the Balkan peninsula." "Italy, until united, caused war after war In Europe, and was not an asset, but a cost!? liability to those powers that ruled Italian states. Lombardy and Venetia were glittering Jewels in the Austrian crown; but their price was Jives, money, shame, and finally humiliation. Similarly, should Austria tcday succeed in acquiring Macedonia, xd i;aly Albania, the two would thus secure for themselves a future burden of war and expense. "Diplomacy, if guided by the highest wisdom, will perceive that what is right In this Instance, la also expedient The Balkans for the Balkan people la the correct policy. If Austria and Rus sia acquire territory at the expense of the Balkan people, they will only be annexing trouble trouble that will never cease until the annexation is an nulled. If those two powers unite now to deprive the victors of the fruita of their victory, they will succeed only in keeping open a virulent sore that might be healed. And they are certain, soon; er or later, to come to blows over tfce spoils. Such a war, likely to Involve the rest of Europe, could not be of benefit even to the victor. "Consider what the unions of Italy and of Germany have meant to the peace of Europe; Those unions have removed from the arena of contention a multitude of the most Irritating ques tion. The union of the Balkans would put out a fire that for nearly a century has threatened a general European con flagration." A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM AXD EQUALITY. Under the leadership of Governor Wilson the democratic party has won the greatest victory since 1852. Sixty years ago the democrats, with Franklin Pierce aa their candidate, overthrew the old whig partj which had nominated General Winfle.d S. Scott as its leader. The defeat of Gen eral, Scott was so overwhelming that me wnig party was annihilated. It figured in no subsequent presidential election. History seems to be reoeat- '"g Itself. The republican party which followed the whig party as a nation al political organization, and inherited some of its economic views, is defeat ed as badly as the whig party was in 1852. The "Grand Old Party," as it loved to call itself, may be the "Gone Old Party." But the democratic party, the great old party of Jefferson and Jackson and their compeers of the early days of the republic, and of Wilson and Bryan and their compeers of these lat ter days, Is still in evidence as it has been since its birth ready for ser vice for the people when caKed upon. It has again been called by the peo ple into their service. It is again tri umphant. The democratic party can never die. It is founded upon the political princi ple of "equal rights for all and spe cial privileges for none." Its founda tion is as solid and lasting as the eternal hills. It wi:i continue to ex ist through the centuries to come. It represents a government of the peo ple, for the people and by the people. As an organization It has made mis takes and may make them again. No organization is perfect, but its prin ciples will continue to exist and in spire the hearts of the country's citi zenship bo long as the republic en dures; and the party name will be re- tH,ned as real meaning is "the rule of the people." The democrats of Illinois who have drne thelr 8hare ,n the Ereat triumph at the po'.ls, should not make the se curing of petty appointments take precedence over the maintenance of the patriotic permanent principles of the party, but should devote them selves to encouraging the efforts of President Wilson and Governor Dunne to give the people the reforms they crave, and bring the administra tion of government back to the funda- I mental basis of "equal rights for all ; and special privileges for none."

Don't you remember, when you were a youngster, that on one side of the sunny living room was a deep, wide, square bay window fi'.led with all kinds of flowers and foliage? Remember the old Iron stand on which the flower pots stood? It was built like steps. You thought It was a marvelously clever arrangement. I know I did. There were all sorts of geraniums and fuchsias and begonias, and re member the calla lilies, and how you watched the unfolding of Its furled whiteness? There was an immense Ivy of which the whole family was jiroud. It was draped over the square of the bay window and hung like a portiere. There, were some plants from the fields and the woods that you'd helped mother gather and in which you felt a proprietary Interest. Mother's wasn't the only living-room conservatory In those days. It was a careless housewife indeed who didn't have her stand of winter plants which she petted most care fully and over which she took as much HURST FOR A (Springfield Record.) Illinois, in all likelihood, will receive pne of the cabinet positions. In this connection the name of El more W. Hurst of Rock Island natural ly' suggests itself Mr. Hurst served as chairman of the democratic national business men's by his democratic opponent, Frank T. O'Hair, of Paris. Analysis of the causes lead;'fo fcif. defeat indicates that it was chief ly due to the same ones that led to a split in the republican party. To this corollary may be added a growing discontent among the younger genera tion of politicians who began to de spair of his ever reaching the quitting pclnt, and dissatisfaction with the un changing conditions among office hold ers of the district. MANY DKSF.HT CASXOX. Many who had stood loyally in the Cannon ranks for years, on this ac count deserted him this year, took their "stand at Armageddon and bat tled for the Lord" and office. Amone the rural voters the feeling became I prevalent that "Uncle Joe" had grown ! away from them, both in sympathy and official acts, that he was no long er a man of the people and no amount ct garden seeds, congressional rec oida -sud otlicial reports could disa buse them of this belief. The old "Uncle Joe" who formerly circulated at their old settlers' meet ings, county fairs and other gather lr.gs, with his pocket full of black cigars, slapped them on the back and i;isde each think he was vitally inter ested In their children, live stock and their crops had been transferred Into a representative of interests and con d'tlons foreign to their wishes and needs. O'HAIR PERSONALITY STRONG. Next to the insurgent upheaval, the strong personality of his chief oppo nent, Mr. O'Hair, was perhaps chief ly responsible tor the ex-speaker's sec ond, and perhaps last political down fall. In 1892 when Samuel T. Busey of Urbana broke through his line of battle, the landslide was accomplished by the means of the use of unlimited money. In later years the Cannon managers generally saw that a can didate to their own liking, If not a mere man of straw, was placed in the field early in each campaign as a de mocratic candidate. These tactics generally discouraged strong democrats from entering the fight, and for the past several elec tions the democratic candidate always failed to poll the full strength of his party. Indeed most of the votes cast for him represented the disgruntled element of the republican party. FECK STRONG CANDIDATE. Encouraged by the results oX the congressional election of two years eft0, ana the bull moose, disturbance termined to forestall the Cannon pro gram by nominating a candidate strong enough to attract the support of the whole party and attract those republicans who wanted Cannon de feated.

It was believed he would command unanimous support in pride as she did In any of her house bold appointments. A home without Its window garden in the living room wasn't a home. No lonely rubber plant or single half-starved Boston fern, and certainly no arti ficial palm, was considered sufficient. Women exchanged plant experience as they exchanged cooking experiences, and a slip from a cherished plant was valued as much as the recipe of a treasured dish. Even the poorest had a bit of a win dow garden perhaps the one bright spot In dull existence. And whoever could afford It had a canary a bird so full of song that when two or three people got togeth er for a talk one had to throw a little shawl over the cage to keep the song ster quiet.

She is more selfish, gives lees for what she gets and somehow doesn't radiate the blessednees that seemed to surround the woman who made her home and her husband and children the great points In her life, The modern woman has lost much of her loveliness, of beautiful Influence upon the lives of those abont her, largely because she has learned to de spise the homely things the things which she considers "common" and makers of drudgery. Some of are trying to get back. It's not easy, for now we have flats, hotels, city houses In narrow city streets; less room to live; actually less light and air for each of us.

This belief was well founded. First slating that he was too busy to fool with a losing fight, he was finally pre vailed upon to accept the nomination cut of pure loyalty to his party, but with no expectation of winning. Then came the two Chicago conventions v.:th ex-Speaker Cannon aligned with the Taft forces and obstinately refus- n.'P to heed the insurgency signs, and O Hair began to gain courage Announcing nimseii as a progres sive democrat with no strings tied to him, he went forth on a "get-acquaint cd" tour of the district and amazed old campaigners with the Instant sue i ceKB that he mpt ouorvuhora Attlmil in an old suit or clothes and a rusty sicuch hat. with sw.il olram hnlin. sicuch hat, with good cigars bulging from every pocket, he visited every village, town and crossroads commun ity in the district. This meeting of the .voters at their homes, coupled v 1th his unassuming and friendly man ner and a ready command of the home ly stories that appeal to the rural people, told by a past master of the story-telling art, was something new. WINS VOTERS' HEARTS. While Cannon was hurling broad sides and salvos of statistics and dry statements of what he and the repub lican administration had accomplish ed at his audiences, O'Hair was win ning his way to the hearts and votes of the masses. While Uncle Joe was stumping the district on a special tiain accompanied by a lot of other candidates, O'Hair was helping the farmers stack and thrash their grain, or was admiring thetr stock while leading for their support. During the last days of the campaign O'Hair mounted the platform In the principal cities and towns of the district and completed his conquest with his elo quence, humor and logic in handling the issues of the day. BORN IN LOG CABIN. Mr. O'Hair was born 42 years ago In a log cabin in a remote section of Edgar county, of humble Irish parent age, and spent bis boyhood days on a furm.

Copyrighted. 191Z. by Associated Uterary Bureau. The autumn season when the tourist 1 heglra is southerly was opening, and the resorts of the border states were well stocked with guests. The rock ing chair brigade as those ladies who dally occupy the porch of the Vleude leau hotel, each and all plying some kind of needle as an accompaniment to their melodious gossiping voices was In session. Two ladles sitting somewhat apart from the rest were engaged In earnest conversation In a low tone. "I sympathize with you, Mrs. Har per," said the one, "but I don't see how I can help you. My son is actively en gaged In business and can't be away from It at this season more than a few days at a time. Could be be here with us, say, for a fortnight I would be glad to lend him to'you for the purpose of drawing your daughter's attention from this young Buggies, who you fear will win her. There Is another course I win suggest a young mau has Just arrived who has entered his name on the hotel register as Edwsrd Caton. Being the only young fellow of prepossessing sppearanee (Ruggles excepted) In the hotel, he will soon be besieged h? the girls. If you like I will make his acquaintance. Introduce hlia to your daughter (telling him she Is the belle of the place), and she will naturally be Interested In taking him away from the others. This will serve to divert her mind from Ruggles and make a breach between them. But why do you object to Ruggles T He Is said to have an Income of $5,000." "My dear Mrs. Crawford, what would $5,000 a year be for Owen?" "What you wish I presume Is simply to break off her affair with Ruggles, that she may be free to marry a for tune." "Precisely. If you can accomplish this break by Introducing any one no matter who he Is I will consider my self under a lasting obligation to you." The same evening the Introduction was accomplished. Gwendolen Harper and Edward Caton were Introduced, and before the guests left the dancing hall In the evening Mrs. Crawford said to Mrs. Harper: "Did you ever see such a remarkable case of love at first sight?" All the parties to this scheme were pleased except Sam Rupgies, who went off to the for end of the veranda and scowled and smoked and smoked and scowled, keeping by himself where he could not see his rival's success lest he should make a scene. But on the third day after the break had been made effective, when Mr. Ruggles was reading a northern news paper, be saw something that thrilled him. It was an advertisement of Mrs. Edward L. Caton for information con cerning her husband, who bad deserted her and their three children. Rupgles Immediately cut the ad. out of the news paper that he alone of those at the ho tel might possess this Information and that he might consider a plan by which he could get the greatest satisfaction out of it. The same evening an anonymous let ter went to the advertiser that a gen tleman had appeared at the Vleudeleau hotel at answering to the name mentioned In the advertisement. Rug gles, who mailed the letter, could not refrain from adding that "the fellow was evidently bent on committing big amy." From the time the discarded lover saw the evidence that his rival was sailing under false colors he changed his bearing toward Miss Harper. Where before he had made his Jeal ousy evident be now assumed an air of superiority mingled with pity. Mr. Caton bad become aware that his at tentions to Miss Harper had made Mr. Ruggles his enemy and hud noticed the antagonism of the lutter's bearing to ward him whenever they met. One evening while Mr. Caton was dancing with Miss Harper he unintentionally ran against Ruggles. who was also dancing. The look Ruggles gave htm was ominous. letter, when both went out on the veranda for a whiff at a cigarette, Caton stepped up to Ruggles and apologized for running against him in the dance. "One who Is sailing under false col ors is beneath my notice for any In sult," was the reply. "How did you get onto that?" asked Caton with surprising imperturbability. "I saw it in the newspapers." "I wish the newspapers would let me alone." was the only rejoinder, and Caton went back Into the dancing ball. where Ruggles soon saw him whirling with Miss Harper. Now, the only real attachment in this triangular affair was between Sam Ruggles and Owen Harper, and from the time Ruggles began to assume that air of superiority Gwen began to be troubled. She was too proud to call him back, but she looked as If she would be willing to take him back if he would apply for reinstatement. One day when they met in the garden of the hotel she remarked that It was a pleasant day. "I think it will storm tomorrow or next day." was the reply. "Why. I see no indications of It" "Perhaps If you watch the incoming trains you'll see a thunder cloud com ing." "You speak in riddles." ne could not louger keep hh. secret It came out in spite of him--that Is, a part of it "When the storm breaks it will strike this man whom you have honored with your favorable consideration." "How? When? Where'" "You shall see." "Won't you tell me?" "Nothing is to be gained by my tell ing you. I prefer that you should see for yourself." And Mr. Ruggles with cold politeness lifted bis hat and passed on. Miss Harper went straight to her mother with the information or. rather, the insinuation. Mrs. Harper had been a bit worried lest she had lifted .ber Daily Story daughter out of the frying pan to drop her into the fire. Her object now was to take advantage of what Ruggles had said to discredit both the rivals. "My dear." she said. "In the first place. It is very mean of Sam to cast a slur upon this Mr. Caton. It shows a very contemptible disposition on Sam's port. But we must remember that we know nothing about Caton. He may be a gentleman and he may not be. Likely be Is some young man wbo has got bold of a little money and is spending It In the only outing of his life." "That can't be, mamma. He has the manner of one accustomed to the very best society. As for Sam, if be knows anything about Mr. Caton It would be very wicked of him not to warn me." "Then why doesn't he tell you the whole story and bave done with It?' Mrs. Harper was not considering the Inexperience of youth or the deflection of Judgment occssloned by Jealousy. It was enough for her to get her daugh ter out of the tolls of a man worth only $5,000 a year and make sure that Gwen should not become too far In terested In one who for all that was' known about him was not worth a cent It was a few days after this conver sation between mother and daughter, at which Gwen promised to drop Mr. Caton at once, that the storm Ruggles had predicted broke. A woman with angular features wss driven from the railroad station to the hotel, who. In stead of placing her name on the register, held a private conference with the landlord and was excused from doing so. She arrived In the morning about an hour after a party of gentlemen. Including Caton, had gone out on the water for a day's flsblngf It was not long after the lady ar rived before there began to be whis pers about her among the botel guests. Then It leaked out that she had come after a fugitive husband, and lastly. Mrs. Harper was filled with conster nation by a report thst Edward Catoni had been contemplating bigamy wltN her daughter. When the fishing party returned thsx guests of the hotel were drawn up ool the veranda to see the fun betweenW' Mr. and Mrs. Caton. The gentleman! came up with the others entirely un conscious of what was In store fof him. The woman was ready to pouncei on him. But the storm didn't brealUj Caton went up to bis room to makej his toilet for dinner, and the woman, who had come after him said that her husband was not among the men who entered. She was very wroth with her anonymous Informant and vowed that if she could discover hlia 6he would give him a piece of ber. mind. The clouds of the storm that bad? passed without striking were still whirling about when a young man drove up to the botel from the sta tion and. seeing Caton on the porch, cried out: "Hello, Bob! Where did you come, from?" "BobT exclaimed several guests sit ting about. In a breath. "I thought his name was Ned." "Who's your friend?" asked one of these persons, following the newly ar rived man Into the bouse. "That? Why, that's Bob Carrlng ton." When Mrs. narper was Informed that the supposed Edward Caton wa none other than Robert Carrlngton. the multimillionaire, and her daughter not two days ago had given blm thai cold shoulder she was not only dum-j founded, but chagrined. She had lost the opportunity of a lifetime. WltH some $10.0ti0,000 a year at her comJ mand Gwen might have gone to Lon don and taken a position In society! there. But the luck bad been against her and she was Inconsolable. f Since bis Identity had been given) away Mr. Robert Carrlngton did not! attempt to pass further under a name that he had assumed In order to so-1 cure temporary Immunity from a notoriety brought upon blm by his Inw mense wealth, nowever, he rejoiced,' at having enjoyed a week of freedom from curiosity and especlelly from so-' clety reporters who telegraphed hie presence wherever be went After the sensation was over Sam Ruggles and Gwen Harper met In the) drawing room of the hotel. "Well." said Bam. "you Just missed snaring a multimillionaire. I'm sorry for you." "And you missed seeing the multi millionaire captured by a deserted wife." Tunny, isn't It?" j Their eyes met. and tbey smiled. "Mother's frantic," Gwen remarked. "I suppose so. Well, what art you going to do?" "Why, I'm not going to do any thing." flie held a rose In her hand and, going up to blm. fixed it In his button hole, ne cast a quick glance about him. There was no one besides them selves In the room. He kissed her. "What a pity, Mrs. nsrper," said Mrs. Crawford, "that we couldn't bave got nn Inkling as to the Identity af young Carrlngton."
