To my Friends in Washington
County, Florida:
As I have made a change in my
political affiliation which I have re-
cently publicly declared and I deem
it justice to myself and to my
friends to make some explanation
as to why-such change was made.
Several years ago, when the
Farmers' Alliance was organized in
i,'.~Ahigton county. Florida, I be-
came a member of that organiza-
tion. I did so because I thought it
was a good thing, and I thought it
would be of mutual benefit to the
farmers of our country to unite
their forces and influence and exert
their powers in one united effort to
bring relief to their distressful con-
dition of those days. As I under-
stood the objects of the organiza-
tion as then declared, no honest
and fair-minded man could have
said otherwise than that they were
good. And I am yet of the opin-
ion that, had not those fundament-

and demanding that the mind of
the people be taken on every ques-
tion, and yet they hold to the old
convention plan of nomination
which is less expressive of the will
of the people and has probably
been the means of more corruption
in government than any other one
thing which could be named in
connection with politics.
For the above reasons I came to
the conclusion more than a yer ago
that I could no longer countenance
the attitude of the party and deter-
mined to no longer cast ry' lot
with the organization which might
well be termed the Omnibus party
of Washington county. Then,
when I viewed with fairness the po-
litical organization in which I had
been brought up from a child, but
which I had been strenuously op-
posing for many years, I saw in
that organization-the democratic
party, a platform of high and no-
ble principles upon which the or-
ganization is builded; I recognized
the fact, which has long been star-
ing me in the face, that that the
democratic party is the champion

The Sunday dinner was over, and
Rebecca was washing dishes In the big
kitchen. LHenry Allie and his wife
came out dressed In their best clothes
and got Into Ithe waiting buggy. Ever
since they had been married twenty-
fire years before the Sunday afternoon
ride had becu a regular proceeding.
Their daughter Beth waved them a
farewell as they drove out of the big
Beth looked anxiously away toward
the woods that bordered the distant
wheattields. Behind them rose a pale
gray cloud now and then flecked by
lying cinders. Rain had not fallen for
several weeks, and the woods were
like tender, and the paths were thickly
carpeted with dry leaves fallen from
last year.
The kitchen windows faced the
wheatfields. and Rebecca's red face
was pressed anxiously to the pane.
Then she saw Beth and came to the
"The woods are fire, Miss Beth,"
she said excitedly. "Your pa's wheat
will be done for if the wind don't
change pretty soon."
The wheatfleld was an undulating
sea of Iple green blades six inches
high. The dry weather had slightly
parched the tips, and Beth bent down
to assure herself that the grain was
too green to be affected by the fire
even if it should reach the fields.
When she looked up again several men
were running across the field. One of
them saw her, paused and turned back.
Slowly she walked through the
wheat, her light tread scarcely crush-
ing the young shoots. Her fair cheeks
took on the rose tint of early dawn,
and her blue eyes were veiled under
a thick fringe of lashes. The man
watched her coming toward him, his
handsome eyes drinking in her fresh,
spring-like beauty. Her pink gown fell
softly about her slender form ap the

greeo wheat rippled about her feet.
At last Beth lifted her shy eyes
and saw his good looking face with
Its reckless, smiling lips-saw the
immaculate whiteness of his collar
and cuffs and the trim neatness of
his handsome clothes. He carried his
coat on his arm and slipped into it
as she came up with him. They had
smiled a greeting Into each other's
eyes. and their first words were com-
monplace enough.
"The woods are afire," said Ralph
Clinton. "'lon't you want to go along
and see the fun. Beth?"
A look of disappointment crept into
the girl's face. "Aren't you going to
fight it, Ralph?" she asked.
The young man laughed good na-
turedly. "It isn't necessary. There
are half a hundred trying to kill it
wlih sand o back fire. but it's got
too big a headway. Besides, the wind
is strong from the southwest, and
nothing can stop it until it dies out
for want of something to burn."
"Where is it now, Ralph?" ques-
tioned Both quietly.
"Out In Deep Hollow, woods-a
spark from the railroad started the
blaze and away she went! There were
five miles burned over at Wayneville
"Deep Hollow woo(ls belong to my
father. lHe ounts right through to the
farm here. It means a serious loss to
him." said Beth.
"It's too bad. Beth. but nothing can
save it. so there's no use in worry-
ing," returned Ralph carelessly.
"Come; let us go and see the fun. The
woods are great at this time, you
know. Perhaps you may find a moc-
casin flower."
"Wait a moment," said Beth, and
she turned and with flying feet re-
crossed the field to the barn. When
she returned she carried a shovel In
one band.
"There!" she panted, thrusting the
utensil Into his unwilling grasp.
"Take that along. Ralph. I'm ashamed
to have you appear there unprepared
to fight the fire."
"Not in these clothes-not on your
life!" ejaculated Mr. Clinton Inele-
gantly. "I'll carry the shovel for the
looks of the thing, but if I fight a
forest fire It will be by proxy! Some
of the negroes from the hollow will
be smoked out and glad of a job to
take my place for a consideration,
"Those poor negroes!" cried Beth.
disregarding his selfish speech. "I for-
got all about them. Their little homes
will be ruined. Let us hurry. Ralph.
In spite of your joking I am sure you
are going to help in a time %f need like
this." ..... .. .
Without further parley Ralph helped
Beth over the fence and into a wood-
land path, through which they hurried
at a greater speed than the young man
fancied. Given this time and oppor-
tunity, he felt that the April woods
were an Ideal spot In which to ask
Beth the momentous question tbat bad
been hovering on his lips for weekV.
He was quite sure of her answer, for
she bad shown her preference for him
during the past winter, and bis clever
ness and wit had quite thrown Ben
Wyatt into the shade-raw, country
bumpkin that Ben was!
Ralph's lips curled In a little smile
of contempt as he thought of the rival
who had quietly withdrawn from the
contest for Beth Miles' favor when the
rivalry became the subject of open
The smoke grew thicker, and the air
was filled with flying cinders that fell
in crisp flakes on their heads. In the
distance they could hear hoarse shouts
of men, the crackling of burning trees
and underbrush and the barking of
Where the three roads crossed was
to be the battleground. If the fire
crossed Deep Hollow road the little
gathering of negro cabins was doomed.
The fire was coming toward them now,
and they could see the forms of men
through the smoke. Strange, fantastic
forms they were, frantically beating
back the encroaching flames or shovel-
-ing loosened soil on the creeping fire
that ate along the ground.
The group of cabins was untouched.
but in grave danger. The unfortunate
occupants were removing their poor
bits of furniture, and two ramshackle
carts were being filled with the goods.
Old Uncle Peter Green occupied a
chair of state in one cart A tottering
chair it seemed owing to the uneasy
antics of the frightened mule In the
shafts. Weeping and praying and la-
menting, they moved dolorously down
the road along which Beth had just

"Go down to the farm. Judy." she
said to the dominant spirit of the
-roup. "Rebecca will take care of you
till the danger is over."
Out of the thick of amoke a man
turned and recognized her; saw her
standing there in her pink cotton dress
dazed by the smoke. Beside her was
Ralph Clinton leaning on an idle shov-
el, whistling softly as he watched the
battle with the approaching flames.
Ben Wyatt leaped into the road nnd
confronted them. Clad In blue flannel
shirt and corduroy trousers, hatless.
his sun browned face and arms black
with soot and grime, he presented a
sorry contrast to Ralph Clinton. But
somehow Beth's glance caught his
steady gaze and lingered there for a
brief Instant, and she saw nothing to
despise in Ben Wyatt. homely farmer
that he outwardly was.
"Get back there, Clintou!" command-
ed Ben angrily. "Take Beth away
from here. Can't you see it's no place
for a woman?"
"Mind your own business, Wyattl"
retorted Ralph. "Get to work there on
your fool's job!"
There was no time for further argu-
ment. The men. who had strung out

IL a wide semicircle, were drawing
closer together. They had started a
back fire, and there was danger when
the two fires met that the sudden leap
of flames might ignite the vegetation
on the bluff. If It did the woods were
doomed. But the farmers fought
valiantly, and little by little the flames
were beaten back from the crossroads
until they smoldered down and left
charred and blackened desolation
wherever their blasting Ofngera had
Tired and exhausted, the fire fighters
lay panting in the sand of the roads.
It was Beth who sent a lurking pick-
aninny to call the fugitives home to
the cabins, and it was she who found
a pall and dipper in Judy Brown's
kitchen and went to the bubbling
spring for water to refresh the tired
men. UB.'f*e It came Ben Wyati's
turn to drink from the dipper she sttp-
ped away down the road toward home.
As she passed him Ralph Clinton arose *
and followed her.
"See here. Beth." he said disagree-
ably. "I'd like to know what I've done
to deserve such treatment at your
Beth turned and surveyed him with
level eyes. "It isn't anything you've
done. Ralph." she said quietly. "On
the contrary. It's what you haven't
done. I don't think you can understand
how I feel about it, Ralph. I thought
I cared for you.-but I am afraid It
was your appearance I loved after
all. Please forget all about me If you
can." Beth said contritely.
"Well. I seem to have got all that's
coming to me today." he said jauntily.
"Good by !"
"(Godby." said Beth gently. As
she watched him walk slowly away
she felt a pang at the shattering of
a cherished illusion, while at the same
time there was a strange, sweet joy
in her heart, mingled with a fear that
she had dallied with real love and
lost it.
Ralph Clinton turned to fling a back-
ward taunt. "I suppose you think
you can whistle Ben Wyatt back.
but you're too late. Beth!" Then he
went on and disappeared.
The girl's face whitened at the taunt
and its insinuation, and with a little
strangled sob she leaned against the
friendly trunk of a tree and hid her
Ben Wyatt's voice behind her star-
tied her to betray telltale tears on
the thick lashes. Grimy and scorched,
hatless and tattered and scratched, he
was a sorry looking lover. The look

darling, shall he stay?
Beth came to his arms with a hafpy
cry. and they miuti he forgotten th.
passage of time, for the returning
cavalcade of the fugitives startled
them into embarrassed realization
that their secret was no longer their
own, but was shared by the grinning
denizens of Deep Hollow wood.
"Land uv love!" shouted Aunt Judy
exuberantly, and to the two, blushing
under the oak tree as the processlon
passed, it was verily a "land of love."

Only on Approval.
At the Wednesday evening service
in the church parlors the minister
chose honesty for the subject of his
brief discourse. In less than a quar-
ter of an hour he found time to lam-
baste nearly everybody who had ever
deviated from the narrow path, but
be was particularly hard on those per-
sons who buy things on approval.
After the sermon everybody enjoyed
himself socially. There were some
big guns there from other parishes.
and the parlors bad been done up es-
pecially for the evening. There were
two lovely new red velvet chairs that
the minister found particularly coin-
fortable. IHe complimented the bead
of the furnishing committee on her
thrift and taste.
On Friday evening there was an-
Other meeting in the parlors. The min
Sister looked around first thing for those
velvet c-ha irs.

A Figure Triok.
Get some one to put down a row of
figures, to add them up and subtract
the total, thus:
These figures added together make
18. Subtract this 16 from the original
number and you get t3.19&
Now ask them to cross out any one
figure, total them up again and tell
you the total. Thus. say, they cross
out the 6, the total becomes 21. They
tell you this, and without looking at
the sum you can say the value of the
figure which has been crossed out.
You do this trick by subtracting the
total from the next multiple of 9.
"The total." says your friend, "'l 21."
The nearest multiple of 9 above 21
is 27. You subtract 21 from 27, and
that leaves 0. To your friend you
say in a dignified tone, "The figure
you crossed out was 6" And your
wondering friend believes you to be
possessed of occult powers.
It doesn't matter what figures are
originally put down, the answer al-
ways comes correct.

Pale-Faced Women

You ladies, who have pale faces, sallow complexIon 't
dark circles under eyes, drawn features and tired, worn-
out expressions, you need a tonic.
The tonic you need is Cardui, the woman's tonic.
It is the best tonic for women, because its ingredients
are specifically adapted for women's needs. They act on
the womanly organs and help to give needed strength and
vitality to the worn-out womanly frame.
Cardui is a vegetable medicine. It contains no min-
erals, no iron, no potassium, no lime, no glycerin, no dan-
gerous, or habit-forming drugs of any kind.
It is perfectly harmless and safe, for young and old to use.

A Story of an Assassination
by a Russian Nihilist


Copyright, 110, by American Praee

1 was making a tour of Switzerland
t fe1t. All the luggage I had with
mue was strapped on my back. and in
my bond I carried a light alpenstock.
One morning I started from Inter-
laken to walk to Thun. The road I
took leads along the west bank of
lAke Thun, or Thunder lake, one of
the prettiest bodies of water in Swit-
zerland. From the road one has a per-
petual view of the Bernese Alps, the
Elger, the Monk and the Jungfrau.
whose snowy peeks rising high in the
heavens may often be mistaken for
light clouds. The sun was shining on
the lake, over whose bosom the little
steamers running between Interlaken
and Thun loaded with tourists were
passing back and forth.
Not far from Interlaken the road
passes through a tunnel in a perpendic-
tlar cliff that fortps the bank of the
lake. While walking through this tun-
net I caught up with a youth who.
judging from his pack. was making a
foot journey the same as I. He spoke
to me nl German, the language of that
phrt of twitzerland. but I signified that
I did not understand him, and he re-
peated his question in French.
"How far is It, sir, to Thun?'
"Ten or twelve miles, I believe'
He was Inclined to let me go on
ahead of him; but, preferring compa-
ny, I adapted my gait to his. He was
apparently not more than eighteen
years old. No beard had yet started
on bis face, and his hair and complex-
slo were fair. I took him for a Swede
or a Norwegian, though such light hair
and skin are common in northern Ger-
many. We walked on together, chat-
ting and enjoying the beautiful pan-
orama of the lake. the hills beyond and
still beyond these the mountains. For
awhile the young man was guarded In
his speech. He then discovered that I
was an American-he had supposed
ine to be an Englishman-and this
seemed to awaken confidence, though
It was rather a fellow feeling, for he
kept me still in ignorance as to who
he was or where he was going. I
knew. however, from his conversation
that he was highly educated and one
of those persons who are born to think
deep. I was astonished at his familiar-
ity with the various schools of philos-
ophy. That he waa a dreamer as woel
as a thinker was apparent from ideas
&e advanced, which to me seemed a
century ahead of the times.
At Melringen we halted for lunch-
eon, eating sandwiches and drinking
beer at a table under the trees in front
of a hotel. We rested for an hour
after luncheon. smoking. I my pipe,
my companin ck Igarettes (the usual
form of a smoke in that country).
The subject that most Interested him
was America and how to get there. I
told him that it all depended on where
one started from and waited for hin
to tell me from what point he would
begin. "The Riviera," was his reply.
Whereupon I Informed him that from
any point on the Riviera-say Nice or
Mentone-one might by a short rail-
,way journey reach Genoa, from which
port steamers are constantly leaving
for the United States. He seemed
much interested In this and more so
when I told him that I had engaged
peaasage by that route myself. When I
asked him if he had any intention of
visiting my country he replied that
.be had not.
We reached Thun about 5 o'clock.
and, after refreshing ourselves with a
glass of beer in the gardens of the
Kursaal, I went to my hotel, my com-
panion going I knew not where. One
meets all kinds of people traveling
abroad, especially if one likes to form
acquaintances as I do. Of all those
1 have met in any of my tours the
person who made the most impression
uporn me was the young philosopher
about whom I learned nothing.
I went by rail from Thun to Paris,
,trom there to Nice, and from Nice to
'dlentone. I found at Mentone General
hA., who had been minister of the
Interior in Rusfia. Indeed, I stopped

In the same hotel with him. Those
who knew told me that several at-
.tempts had been made upon his life
revolutionists, or, as they were then
called. nihilists, and that he was close-
Sr guarded. During his Incumbency
*a office he had sent hundreds of peo-
ple to Siberia, besides those he had ex-
ectted. He had been proscribed by
the nihilists, they having vowed to
t1il him. I asked why he should dread
his enemies so far from home and was
told that they could work to better
advantage beyond the Russian borders
tha' within them. In Russia the gov-
ernment could act direct. In other
countries more or less red tape was
necessary to arrest a suspect, and be-
fore it could be done an assassination
might take place. General A. was
spending a, seaa4 at Mentone for his
health. being afilllcted with some nerv-
ous disorder. It seemed to me that a
man living in fear for his life would
lie likely to have nerve trouble. He
was very regular ku his habits, going
out to' Walk in the morning and to
drive In the afternoon, always attend-
ed by men in citizens' dress, who

Notwithstanding the precautions tak-
on the general was assassinated at
Mentono and at the time I was there.
It was in June and the days were long.
Alout half past 8 o'clock one evening

fired it must have been from between
the slats.
The occurrence did not make muchi
Impression on me, but an hour later,
on going downstairs, I found the hotel
proprietot, the servants, the guests, all
horror stricken. On asking the cause
I was told that General A. had been
shot by some onoe %tbo hMid fired a bul-
let into his toom through ar open win-
dow. Upon asking the time the affair
occurred I was told tlat it was about
half pant 8.
I knew perfectly well that I had
seen the smoke of the weapon that had
done the deed and could point out the
window from whtch ft had been fired,
but I held my peace. Some one had
revenged a long list of barbarities via-
ited upon those who had dared to at-
t(.empt to build up an oppressed people,
;lud I was not interested in taking any
part in the affair. I Inquired if it was
known from what point the shot was
tired and was told that it was believed
It had come from a tree that grow
e:iar the general's window. By this
I knew that I was the only person who'
had witnessed the firing. By giving
the information I possessed the police
wouldd have a description of the per-
11on or persons occupying the room
from which the assassin had done the
work, and they would be pretty sure to
make the arrest. I confess, sympathiz-
ing with the Iussian revolutionists: I
had no Intention of enlightening them.
I was pleased, however, possessing
such a secret, that the time had come
for me to leave Mentone. My steamer
was due to sail from Genoa the next
morning, mnd I took a night train for
that city. I stood, shortly before sail-
ing, on the upper deck looking at the
swarm of people, some hurrying
aboard. some going ashore, all infected
by that bustle usual to a steamer about
to leave port.
- A girl came up the gangway whose
face was familiar to me. Where had
I seen her? It bothers one to see a
face without being able to place it.
and this case annoyed me more than
usual. However, since I could not rec
ollcet where I had met her I ceased
to think about her, interesting myself
In other persons. We soon passed
out on to the bosom of the Mediterra
nean. and I rejoiced at the prospect of
getting home.
I)uring the next few days I looked
for the girl whom 1 had been unable
to place. both on deck and in the din-
Ing saloon. I did not see her till we
had passed Gibraltar and steamed out
on to the Atlantic. Then one morning.
while walking on the highest of all the
decks, where there were no other pas-
sengers, I suddenly came upon her
sitting on the boards, leaning up
against a projection that shielded her
from the wind.
She turned white as a cloth.
At first I thought I would stop and
ask her where we had met, but she
turned her eyes away from me, and I
saw that either I had made a mistake
in appearing that I had known her
or she had no desire to continue the
acquaintance. But why had the meet-
ing with me so affected her? I
thought over every one I had met
abroad-indeed, every one I had ever
known-in order to discover if there
was any with whom I had had trou-
ble. No; the record was clear.
We stopped at Madeira and the
Azores. I did not see the girl again
till we had left the latter islands. But
I had thought a great deal of her, and
finally It suddenly flashed upon me
who she was and where I had met her.
She was the young man with whom
I had walked from Interlaken to Thun.
After leaving the Azores I came
upon her. sitting on deck where I had
first seen her. I was about to pass
her when she smiled at me. Of course
I joined her.
"Now that we have touched at the
last European port," she said, "I am
willing to make myself known to you.
We walked together one day In Swit-
"Is the costume you wore then or
the one you wear now your legitimate
dress ?"
"The one I wear now."
I waited for her to explain, but she
did not. So I said:
"Why have you deferred making
yourself known to me?"
"Because I am a fugitive. Had 1
not had confidence that you would not
betray me I should not have planned
to take this steamer. Yet I was
obliged to take it. You will not betray
"Hlow do you know that? If you
have committed a crime it is my duty
to betray you."

"I have committed no crime except
in the cause of justice."
That was the end of the confidence
she gave me. I did not wish her to
give me any more. I knew all she
could have told me. I wished that I
did not know it lest I might be called
upon to bena witness concerning it. I

I saw something of the girl every
day or so on shipboard, but when we
reached port I did not think it safe to
lie seen with her. I did not see her
when she left the ship. For several
days I eagerly scanned the newspa-
pers, dreading to read of her arrest.
,S-nce I did not and have heard noth-
-.ng of her since. I have concluded that
she lainded without detection. What

A Disappointment at a Fourth
of July Celebration.

Copyright, 1910, by American Press

"Hi, Jared!" called First Selectma.
Poster. "Found the grave yet?"
"Reckon I have," replied the sexton.
"Ann Bassett says It's the grave of
Theron Bassett"
After a century of somnolence the
town of Poud Point awoke to the re-
alization that Its name was not writ-
ten large on the page of the baton's
history. Indeed, it did not appear at
all Other towns and villages in the
state boasted of bullet scarred edifices,
historical taverns and many dwellings
wherein had slumbered the immortal
Washington or the beloved Lafayette.
It had remained for Dr. Liscom to
Unearth or at least to disclose the
identity of a real hero of the Revolu-
tionary war. In his genealogical re-
searches the good doctor had come
across the mention of one Theron Bas-
sett of Pond Point, who had enlisted
and afterward died fighting on the
27th of August, 1770, in the battle of
Long Island.
Notwithstanding the fact that The-
ron Bassett had appeared to be the
only patriotic soul among the hundreds
that had populated Pond Point in those
early days, with commendable ardor
Pond Point decided upon a celebration
upon the following Fourth of July.
This celebration was to come as a
thunderclap upon the neighboring
towns, which had openly jeered at
Pond Point in days gone by.
There was to be a grand parade and
speechmaking on the green where the
churches formed a triangle. There
was to be an oration at the grave de-
livered by the first selectman himself,
followed by the sounding of "taps"
over the resting place of the neglected
hero. Then there was to be a picnic
in the grove, with free ice cream and
gorgeous fireworks in the evening.
Other towns and villages would come
and see and envy.
At last the honor of Pond Point was
to be vindicated. Dr. Liscom had a
cousin who knew a man who was a
reporter on a New York paper. This
reporter was enjoying his annual va-
cation. but he had reluctantly con-
sented to appear. nFH he known what
was in store for him he might have
accepted the assignment with more

and muggy. with the promise of tn
tense heat later on.
"This is a proud day for Pond Point,"
remarked Dr: Liscorn as he prepared
to enter the carriage drawn up at the
"The greTntet day ever." responded
the first selectman, puffing nervously
at his huge cigar. "We've been wait-

we'll show some of those other fellows
what Pond Point can do! They say
there's a big crowd from ftetown and
Scatterbrook up at the green now."
He panted Into a seat beside the doc-
tor and fumbled at the roll of manu-
script in his pocket.
In the carriages were three clergy-
men of varying doctrines: the Enright
brothers, lawyers and men of stand-
ing in the community: a superanunted
senator who was a relative of the En-
rights and the orator of the day: the
committee on celebration, and, lastly.

Dr. Liscom arose lnd said:

oversight, has been too long permitted

the woman sarcastically. "This grave,"

sweep of her mlttened hand, "does not

She went amid a dead silence. and It
was not until the dust froft her car-
riage wheels had settled again that a
faint chuckle from the visitors broke
the constraint. Dr. Liscom covered the
situation with a few words spoken
with a twinkling eye.
"Pond Point seems fated to play a
passive part in the history of her coun-
try. So be It! Let us be content to be
good citizens, heroes in our humble
way. and perhaps we may so conduct
ourselves in time of national distress
our descendants may honor our mem-
ories even as we would honor the mem-
ory of some great man! In the mean-
time I move that we adjourn to the
picnic grove!"
Amid loud applause the gathering
made its way to the grove, while the
reporter replaced his notebook in his
pocket and thanked the doctor for the
privilege of attending such an interest-
ing occasion, and the good doctor and
other members of the committee swal-
lowed hard when they saw the alert

1660. when there was mourning for
King Charles' brother, the Duke of
Gloucester, he "bought a pair of short
black stockings to wear over a pair of
silk ones for mourning." Next day
"came one from my father's with a
black cloth coat. made of my short
cloak, to walk up and down In." The

First Selectman Jeffersan P'oster

ended. His round red face was redder
than usual, and when he removed his
stiff bat beads of perspiration stood out
on his forehead. He took the roll of
manuscript from his pocket and sur-

eye. When his glance met the slightly
contemptuous smile of the reporter
from New York he started violently
