FRIDAY. March 19. ltC9 [
It was treely said seven years ago
that it would be a cold day when
Roosevelt voluntarily gave up public
office. And it was!
If the National Congress is able
to back its resolve by deed, the inauguration
day will be changed
from furious and fickle fourth ot
March to the more placid weather
of the last week of April. It is calculated
that there have been over a
hundred and that there will be a
thousand deaths from pneumonia
caused by exposure to the blizzard
on the day of President Taft's inauguration.
President Taft's cabinet is strong
on law and it is suspected that he
knows some law himself. It is said
the new President will make his
own policies and that his cabinet
will act as general counsel to the
administration. It is believed that
it will be in a way quite as much a
one-man affair as was that of the
las! TVcsHer* or different
plan. The Preside:; k: ows what
lie want? io do. He has some verv
clear Ideas c.? si ted In hi.-, .naugural
address and *he eminent ?e .a!
liguts with wr . .. " . .Uiivuhd
ed himself insures as good advice
as the country can afford about the
constitutional and legal questions
that are continually arising.
THAT CARMACK JURY
A few weeks ago Senator Carmack
one of the ablest and most
brilliant men of Tennessee?yea of
the South?was ruthlessly shot
down on a street of Nashville by
the Coopers. The trial of the slayers
is now in progress. In selecting
a jury over 3,000 jurors from several
counties were examined before
the panel was complete. The jury
as it stands now is composed of 12
of the most ignorant men in Ten-'
nessee. Four of them can not even
read, two can scarcely understand
English and not one of them has
read a newspaper since before the
killing. "The jury of his peers"?
what a mockery! A case requiring]
the best trained minds and the
clearest knowledge in order to be
able to sift out the nuggets of the
truth from the mass of evidence to
be passed upon by a jury, the only
recommendation of which is that it
is composed of ignorant and illit-j
erate men, is a travesty upon intell-:
igent justice!
A few cases like this and our
much boasted jury system will fall
and rightly so. If the selection of
this jury is lawful?and it is?then
the law is at fault and if it be not
speedily remedied our jury system
will fall.?Branchville Jury.

with Wray on Monday afternoon.
'You always seemed so exactly can

Pauline. sm
'Then if I am not contented. It will Phi
be my own fault.' ner
'Or?or mine,' sho murmured.
At this point they were interrupted, tin
and (iilbert did not lind an opportunl- Pa:

almost impossible not to feel some
faint Puttering of hope; ho began to uo>
attach greater importance to Joan's mm
advice, and at least determined to 'i
spare no opportunity of putting him- l.<>
self in Pauline's way. sai<
He saw her next on Sunday afternoon.
She was walking with Mrs. i
Cathcart near the statuo of Achilles n
in Hyde Park, Amabel following with j i
Bernard. But as well as Pauline, in.;
Gilbert recognized Wray Waterhouse i
a yard or two in advance of himself. s\.
Gilbert saw the flush ol' recognition uu.
on her face, saw her step away from
Mrs. Cathcart's side, holding forth her ma
right hand with every appearance of cat
cordiality. Gilbert pressed Ids lips no;
together, passing on, himself unseen,
whilst Wray walked by Paulino's side, a i
and Mrs. Cathcart fell hack to Amabel i> ,
and Bernard. not
'I wondered whether she would i,:h
speak to the Johnny,' whispered Bern- I
aid. tat
'Pauline always keeps her most gra- p, ,
clous manners for the rejected,' said i
Amabel. hoc
'Still, she hasn't rejected Water- p?,
house, don't you know.' Bernard re- ,
torted, hopefully. .\m
'You are staying in London, then.' ^p,,
said Pauline, after one or two casual I
remarks. OU(.
'Oh. yes??'
'My sister said something about , 'n.
your taking up politics.' ?u,
'It's the only game worth playing.' jj,,
lie rejoined. lo
'Bather serious game!' said Pauline
'The whole of life's a game,' he ox- .
claimed, 'and we arc the pawns.' ^
'No, no.' site protested. jm
'I should have said that you were
the Queen.' lie insisted. (l,
'You must remember we are living
pieces. Wray.'
'Wo might be inanimate for all the
influence we have on our destinies.' lie
said.

'The breaking out must lie an im

.Ah, but when one returns to her
senses again, think of the remorse; ^ ?
and the mischief may be irrevocable.'
'You have not allowed anything you
have done to be irrevocable,' said i~1"
Wray, and they were brought to a
standstill by tho throng.
"(Jond afternoon. Mr. Waterhouse,'
cried Amabel, offering her hand,
whilst Bernard curtly nodded. 'We
meet in a crowd,' she added. v'c
'It's pleasant to meet anywhere,'
Wray answered, lowering his voice. '
I shouldn't have imagined you
thought that!' t>x<
'Why not?' he demanded.
'You never come to see us,' she said. '? 1
'Yon forget I was at your house s'?on
Monday,' Wray suggested.
'Well, 1 didn't see you,' she re- tor
turned, with a laugh.
'Shall I come?' lie asked. a t
'Why, of course,' Amabel answered,
whilst Bernard gnawed his lower lip sai
and walked on with Pauline. t>"
On reaching home. Paulino accompanied
Amabel to the drawing-room. del
"Why did you bother Wray to come
here?' she asked. ho
'I didn't know you could hear me.'
said Amabel. at<

'Anyhow, Mr. Waterhouse didn't require
much persuasion,' Amabel re- tin
torted. ovi
'1 don't understand you, unless '
'We are mutually mysterious, my rid
dear. I certainly don't understand
you.' said Amabel
'I suppose you are playing with
Wray to torment Bernard,' Pauline <"<
suggested. 'What pleasure can it :,li
give you to make the poor fellow miserable?'

Amabel laughed aloud. nil

said, 'how about Gilbert?' bll

Paulino, gravely. cln
