"In how long?” Bobby inquired,
not allowing himself to become in
the slightest degree excited.
"One year," announced the optim
:-):<■ Mr Applerod with conviction.
Mr. Johnson, his lips glued tight
lv together in one firm, thin, straight
line across his face was glaring
steadfastly at the corner of the
ceiling, permitting no expression
whatever to flicker in his eyes;
noting which Bobby turned to him
with a pointblank question.
"What do you thing of this oppor
tunity, Mr. Johnson?” he asked.
Mr. Johnson glared quickly at Mr.
Applerod.
"Tell him," defied that gentleman.

return, whereat Bobby smiled with
gleeful reminiscence, and Mr. John

laughed hobby, and dismissed the
matter. Mr. Johnson, as ;t start in
business we may as well turn this
study into a temporary office. 'Fake
this check down to the (’ommercial
hank, please, and open tm account.
You already have power of attorney
for my signature. Procure a small
set of hooks and open them. Make

I ll not promise that I will do .any
thing with it. hut it would he only
fair to examine it.
With these < risp remarks, upon
the decisiveness of which Hobby
I prided himself very much, he left
the two to open business for him
under the supervision of the por
trait of stern hut humor-given old
John Burnit. which stared down up
on them from over his desk.
"Applerod." said Johnson indig
nantly. his lean frame almost quiv
ering. it is a wonder to’ me that
you can look tip at that picture and
reflect that you are trying to drag
John Burnit *s son into this fool
scheme."
"Johnson." said Mr. Applemd.
putting out ltis cheeks indignantly,
"you were given the first cluince
to advise Mr. Robert what he should
do with his money, and you failed
tit do so. This is it magnificent
business opportunity, and I should
consider myself very remiss in my
duty to John Hamit's son it ] fail
ed to urge it upon him."
Mr Johnson [ticked up the letter
that Bobby, evidently not caring
whether they read it or not. had
left behind him. He ran through it
with a grim smile and handed it
over to Applerod as his best retort.
('ll APT lilt II
[ At the home of Agnes HI list on
Bobby’s car stopped almost as a
matter of habit, and though the
hour was a most informal one lie
walked up the steps as confidently
las if lie intended opening the door
| with a latchkey; for it had been
[another grim whim of John Burnit's
I to pick out as itis son’s trustee tlte
[girl whom Bobhv loved, and to
(hedge her about witn certain se
vere obligations. Agnes • ante down
to meet him in a most ravishing
morning robe of pale green, a con
fection so stunning in conjunction
with her gold-brown eyes and wav
ing brown h'ir and round white
throat that Bobby was forced to
audible comment upon it.
“Cracking!” said lie. ”1 suppose
that if 1 hadn't had nerve enough
to pop in here unexpectedly before
noon 1 wouldn’t have seen that
gown for ages.”
it was Aunt Constance, the irre
pressible. who. leaning over the
stair railing, sank the iron into his
soul.
"It was bought at Trimmer &
Co.'s. Grand Street side. Bobby,"
she informed him. and with this
Parthian shot she went back through
the upstairs hall, laughing.
"Ouch!" said Bobby. "That was
snowballing a cripple,” anti he was
really most woebegone about it;
for the Grand Street entrance of
Trimmer & Co. had been the John
Burnit Store.
"Never mind, Bobby, you have
still plenty of chance to win,” com
forted Agnes, who. though laugh
ing, had sympathetic inkling of
that sore spot which had been
touched. He seemed so forlorn, in
spite of his big. good-natured self,
that she moved closer to him and
unconsciously put her hand upon his
arm. It was too much for him in
view of the way she looked, and,
suddenly emboldened, he did a thing
the mere thought of which, under
premeditation would have scared

"This morning you are strictly in

"Where* are you going?” be (pier

she admitted, smiling, and realiz
ing. too. that it was not all ban
ter.
"I told you to remember." assert
ed Bobby, with a strange new sense
of mast erf illness which would not
' down.
When she came down again,
lressed for the trip, be was still
in that dazed elation, and it lasted
through their brisk ride to the far
outskirts of the city, where, at the
side of a watery marsh that ex
tended for nearly a mile along the
roadway, lie halted.
"This is it." waving his hand
across the dismal waste.
"It!" she repeated. "What?”
"The property that it was sug
gested I buy.”
No wonder your father thought
it necessary to appoint a trustee,"
was her first comment. "Why. Bob
by. what on earth could you do
with it? It's too large for a frog
farm and too small for a summer
resort.” and once more she turned
incredulous eyes upon the “prop
erty.”
Dark, oily water covered the en
tire expanse, and through it emerg
ed. here and there, clumps of dank
vegetation, from the nature and
dispersentent of which one could
judge that the water varied from
one to three feet in depth. Higher
ground surrounded it on all sides,
and the urgent needs of surburban
growth had scattered a few small,
cheap cottages, here and there, ui>
on the hills.
"it doesnt seem very attractive
until you consider those houses,"
Bobby confessed. "You must remem
ber that the city hasn't room to
grow, and must take note that it is
trying to spread in this direction.
Wouldn’t a fellow be doing a rather
public spirited thing, and one in
which he might take quite a bit of
satisfaction. if he drained that
swamp, tilled it, laid out streets
and turned the whole stretch into
a cluster of homes in place of a
breeding-place for fevers?”
"You talk just like a civic im
provement society." she said, laugh
ing.
"We did have a chap lecturing on
that down at the club a few nights
ago." he admitted, “and maybe 1
have picked up a bit of the talk.
But wouldn’t it he a good thing,
anyhow?”
"Oh. I quite approve of it. now
that 1 see your plan,” she agreed;
"but could it be made to pay?”
"Well,” he returned with a grave
assumption of that businesslike air
he had recently been trying to copy
down ai the Traders' Club, “there
are a hundred and twenty acres in
the tract. I can buy it for two
hundred dollars an acre, and sell
each acre. In building lots, for full
six thousand. It seems to me that
this is enough margin to carry out
the needed Improvements and make
the maiketing of it worth while
What do you think of it?”
They both gazed * out over that
desolate expanse and tried to pie
lure it dotted with comfortable cot
tages. set down in grassy lawns
that bordered on white, clean streets
and the idea of the transformation
was an attractive one
”lt looks to me like a perfectly
splendid ’dea.” Agnes admitted. ”!
wonder what your father would
have thought of it."

RECENT NUMEROUS ACCIDENTS
HAVE ACCENTUATED
THIS POINT.
PARIS. Sept II The death of
th - unfortunate M Nicholas Kinet
and the more recent accident to
Madame Franke. added to the many
other recent fatalities, makes an
article by M. Rene Quinton, presi
dent of the Aerial League, on the
necessity for pads or life protectors
for aviators, appear very opportune.
M Quinton, in an article in the
Kelair. says that it Is high time
that the safety of the aviator should
lie taken seriously into considera
tion. The frequent repetition of
similar tatalities against which cer
tain precautions might tie taken
makes it imperative that something
should lie done.
Aviation is itself in danger of
seeing its progress hampered. Witii
I out security there can lie no flying.
Inst as there are today no steamers
(that are not provided with life boats,
so no aviator ought to he without
liis life protector. In sailing
; through the air man ventures on a
new element which is not less treach
erous than the wave, and the avia
| tor’s safety ought to lie one of the
I first tilings to lie considered. If
flte problem cannot tic solved, avia
tion w'll lie nipped in the hud
It is for this very reason, says
| M. Quinton, that tlit- committees of
i lie Aerial League and of the Aero
club have been for the past few
weeks considering the subject. The
Aerial League is prepared to open
a pn hi i< competition for the best
life-protectors, which many of its
, members consider nu absolute neces
sity. The suggestion of Rudyard
Kipling of a pneumatic helmet and
j other protecting devices seems to
! him to be dictated by common sense,
A great many fatal accidents, he
| says, might have been avoided if
such devices had been used. Such
| protectors, of course, would be in
I efleclual in cases of a fall from a
1 very great height, bat in the major
ity of instances the descent is real
ly from a small height. The avia
tor. instead of being dashed brutal
| ly to the ground would fall in real
i ity on mi air cushion, which would
1 nearly always save his life.
It is enough to recall the major
ity of fatal falls to recognize the
| utility of such a precaution. If such
a life-protector had been used. Cap
ital'll Feher. I.efehre. Fernandez. l)e
lagiang?, and several others would
| still be alive. If Roughler had not
! fallen into the sea at .Vice, he would
! probably also have lost his life.
There are many instances in which
aviators have fallen, and we were
told that they escaped as bv a
| miracle, because they were protected
by a bar of wood or network of
wires which deadened the first im
i pact. How much more safe would
the aviator be if he were always
j sure of finding an air cushion be
ll ween him and the hard ground or
i parts of the motor. Captain Ferber
would certainly still be alive if such
! a cushion iiad been between his
chest and the motor.
Mr. Quinton's conclusion is that no
I effort should be spared to make
I aviation practical, and It can only
j be made practical by being made
I safe. As regards the fatal accident
to M. Nicholas Kinet, the writer re
! marks that the fall was from a con
| siderable height and so a simple pro
tective pad or shield would probably
not have saved him. For such cas
es, he says, a regular parachute
ought to be devised.

A waiter at a western hotel said
to one of the guests at the dinner
table: "What kind of pie do you
wish? We have peach. apple,
pumpkin and lemon.”
The guest replied, "Give me peach,
apple and pumpkin,” to which the
waiter with a shrug of his should
ers. a curl of his lips and an ap
propriate gesture, said, with sar
casm, "What's the matter with the
lemon?”
An Englishman sitting at an ad
joining table, who overheard the
conversation, now said to his neigh
bor, "I beg your pardon, but what
was the matter with the lemon?”

I asked the governor of Ohio if
he thought the tariff would he ihe
main issue in the Presidential cam
paign.
"One of the issue;," ne answered
promptly, and with significant em
phasis, Considering that the Ohio
Republicans in their compromise
platform are pledged to stand pat
on Taft and his tariff
"There are other issues." said
he "The cause of the people and
tiie issues of constitutional govern
ment are appropriate in themselves,
but tiiere are other issues than the
tariff. The Republican record is to
rank with indifference and betrayal
along these lines to lie covered or
condoned by a few professions or
platitudes
I have not formally begun my
campaign as yet. and I do not care
in advance of it to map out the line
of discussion.
"Hut privilege’ ami ’centraliza
tion,' the high cost of living, the in
creased power of the electorate, the
restraint of bosses and trusts, will
share with the tariff in tlie discus
sion of the Ohio hustings.
“The chances of success in Ohio
appear to me exceptionally bright.
The party is confident to a degree
and fully united In every practical
way. I share this confidence in the
highest degree and the Republican
division, already hopeless and grow
ing wider, confirms tlie expectation
of Democratic success. I think Ohio
will lead the list of Democratic
states.”
"Your success in Ohio. (Inventor,
would make certain your nomination
as the Democratic candidate for the
Hresiil m y."
"\Vc will cross that bridge when
ive come to it." was the reply. "Suf
fielent unto the day is the responsi
bility and the opportunity that it
covers."
"But you will not mind giving an
opinion as to the outlook for na
tional sui'iess for your party?"
"Xot at all. 1 think the promise
for a Democratic President in 1 12
is brighter than it has been in a de
cade. Conditions and experience
have vindicated the historic Demo
cratic policies and the demoraliza
tion and decay of the Republican
party have made a revival of real
, Democrat y Indispensable to good
government and the welfare of the
people. The Republican party lias
literally gone to pieces by its own
selfishness and greed and the Demo
cratic party will be summoned back
to power and to responsibility."
"Governor, in this hour of gener
ally recognized hope and promise
for the Democratic party, what in
your opinion is the chief danger
that threatens its national success?”
"I will answer that question at
least,” said Harmon of Ohio, "be
cause somebody ought to sound the
warning.
"Also, there will be Democrats,
long out of power, who may seek
to please their constituents and
'strengthen their own fences' by the
introduction of bills that they have
no hope of passing and would not
introduce if they had. These bills
will be scrutinized and criticized by
the keenest and ablest Republican
newspapers that we have ever
known, and they will he written
down as Democratic policies and as
promise of the legislation that the
country may expect if the Demo
cratic party is given control of the
government in 1912.
"Here is the most serious menace
of this splendid prospect of the Dem
ocratic parly.
"And." said Harmon of Ohio, "if I
as an idividttal long in service may
be permitted to offer a serious word
of warning and counsel to my party,
it would be condensed in two sen
tences:
"First—Del no Democrat offer in
tlte next Congress a bill that he
would not be willing to stand on
as Democratic policy and willing to
see written as a law on the statute
hooks of the country.
"And,’ second Del the Democratic
party endeavor, at any sacrifice
short of favor or principle, to get
together and stand together in
Washington.
"If these two things can be done
I ilu not believe that there will be
any <hmbt of a long lease of national
power for the party of Jefferson and
Jaekson hoginninK in 1912."
With these words, whose wisdom
and directness left their profound
impression on my mind. I left Jnd
son Harmon to the tender mercies
of the politicians. State and na
