One Blow for That to Seffy.

•na husband, 1n spite ot all. fche was a
loyal wife, and the old man liked lief
«he better for it.
So it came to pass that they two,
t.he beat old man and the girlish wife
the drunkard, separated more and
mow from the world and came more
and Dior© together. And often they
vrere seen in the fields together and
Walking along the roads arm iu arm
Wit.ii Sally's little fortune at com-
mand, Sani had gone rapidly to the
bad. And Sally came tc know what
teai* were, and that dreadful kind of
walttng which falls to the lot of such
women—the waiting for the fall of a
footstep which makes one shudder
yet rejoice.
They told her to get rid of him, but
#he shook her head and thought of the
inscription In her wedding ring
After a while It was the gentle old
man who helped to make these vigils
legs intolerable going away stealthily
by the back door when Sam's unsteady
step was heard at the front—an angel
'if light if ever there was one in
plowman's jacket.
It fell grimly to his lot, too, to pro-
vide for Sam by diminishing the little
farm he had longed and hoped for,
acre by acre. There was no conten-
tion between them as to this. The
young wife's wishes were his law.
"He married me for that," said Sally,
the first time, "and 1 let him marry me
for that—just for Only noono was
spited but me but me well, he shall
have it—all—all"—her voice broke a
little—"all but the— pasture-Held—that
-no one shall have but—you—or Seffy
when I die."
Only once he interfered. Sam
raised his hand to strike her and he
laid the drunkard at his feet with a
blow such as he had struck but once
before in his life.
"I am her guardeen!" he cried as he
struck. "By the Lord. I'm her guar
4een!"
For a moment he gloated over the
prostrate brute. Then he stood up
♦vembllng before Sally.
"Forgif me," he begged. "But I
couldn't help It. It done itselt'. Mebby
—God-a'mtghty only know*!—It was,
a chance to efen up for the other one.
And ylt it was a righteous blow—yas, ;
it was a righteous blow!**
"Yes," she said. You are the lirst j
that ever saw " •
It was too late to stop. \\\A before \
it was done he knew 'hat this was not
a now experience to her. and that she |
suffered It—and wn.; almost glad < f It
•for penance.
"By the Lord. ' cried the old man,
If he efer strikes you ag'ia I'll kill
bint!"
"No," said Sally softly.
"Yas!" insisted with some ot
bis old violence.
"No," she repeated sadly "Because
It iri all my fault- -all the shame—the |
•hame—because I—deserve It! And— |
♦Thou shalt not kill!' You know we
&Ave tempers! And we have both
vitfed them!"
Ha shuftdeffeit and) thought of the
stowed field with SefTy lying there.
And forgive me."
But this also made her dearer to
him. And so, little by °little, they
drew closer and closer, until a certain
happiness was his and a certain con-
tent hers. Occasionally they laughed.
But this was not often. They were
well satisfied to sit before the winter

And after a while slie would ask him no
more to kiss her good night—he did
It as of right, and very beautifully,
on her hair—so much like Seffy. that
first dear kiss—that it made her sob
—always.
"Just like Seffy!" she said the first
time and cried, pushing him out of the
door when he would have asked a
question.
But he asked his question one day.
It was whether he had loved Seffy.
"Not till Seffy comes! ' she cried. "1
won't answer."
' Sally." he said solemnly, "I killed
my little boy. He is dead. I hurt him
—I made him afeared of me—he
dragged himself away to die, like wild
animals that air hurt by meu. So you
will have to tell me."
"No—no!" sbe begged. "He is not
dead. And some day he will come
back to us—you M
"Sally, you said 'us'?"
"Yes Forgive me. I m^n'.—you."
"Did you mean me?"
"Yes -oh, yes!"
"Cross your breast!"
She made this adjuration with a
smile.
But when he had gone, she groveled
on the floor snd cried:

Sally rose suddenly and vanished to
the kitchen where there was a light.
"What was It?" asked the old man
when she returned.
"I—I choked." said Sally quite
truthfully, "and went for a drink."
"Yas—don't read no more. We'll
find out about the succession to-nior-
row night. Hut what was the smart
feller's name?''
She pretended to look for it. and
when she pretended to have found it:
"Mr.—S. P. Brown." sbe read.
"A Kansas man about Maryland'.
Huh!"
Rut, that night, after Seffy's father
was in bed. Sally wrote a pitiful letter
—perhaps the first she had ever writ-

"Dear Selty (It. rani

The post-mistress smiled Indulgently
as Sally handed In the letter the hext
day.
"A long way off," she said.
"Yea." said Sally, fidgeting with her
bonnet "How soon do you think 11
will get there?"
The post mistress reflected.
"About a week." she said then.
"So long?"
But, as a matter of fact, she haa
thought it would take longer. Kansas
was a vague place in those days, and
a vast distance away.
"Well," said the post mistress com
fortingly, "mebby not. quite so long.

I'll put It in the mail bag now."

"You'll nefer work for you' keep

man "I owe you that much for—

She liked that. She was sitting on
a low stool at his feet, her elbow on
his knee—her favorite attitude. She
crowded a little closer.
"Pappy," she said presently, "let me
come and keep your house."
"Do you mean that?" asked the o'd
man Joyously.
"Yea!" she said.
"But why? That's hard work for a
gal that's not used to it."
"Ofc. maybe 1 want to be where Sef-
fy \las. Kor—some day—some day—
he'll coiue back and 1 want to in?

They were silent for a while and
then the old man said huskily:
"You shall. You shall sleep in Seffy's
bed. You shall look In his little
cracked looking glass. You shall set
in his place at the table. You shall be

"May I ride his mare—and plow

his ecstasy. "Ken you?—say—do you

"Yes," she said very ottly, "If you

U'.5;!7 net tonnage are reported for
1907, while the only countries below
that figure were Belgium, !!; China, 1:
Egypt, 3; Siatn. 1; Portugal, 1. The
number of British ships was 2,651 with
9,4!I5,S68 net tonnage.
Uncle Sam's showing for 190" is
very much worse than even his poor
record for 1906. with 22 ships of 67,-

thing could be more humiliating, espe-
cially for a country of the prestige,
power and resources of the United
States.
Why has the merchant mar ine b«eu
swept from the high seas since the
Republican party came into power?
Under Democratic rule the Stars and
Stripes were sean in every port the
world over, and the American "clipper
shlpa" were the fastest, sailors. But
the age of iron and so-called protective
tariffs and restrictive navigation laws
have so increased the cost of ship
building and the expense of navigating
American ships that thoae with cap
ital have sought other and more fa
vored fields for its investment. The
Republican policy now is to grant dl
rect subsidies for ships to over
come the indirect subsidies to
other intereats which have
disastrously affected our merchant ma-
rine. The ship building trust has been
protected by allow ing only American
built ships to be registered under the
laws of the United States.
If a shipmaster wishes to buy a new
ship he must pay the price the ship-
building trust demands. He cannot
buy an Kngllsh-bullt ship, although the
price would be 40 per cent, less than
one built in the United States. Som
shipmaster# have evaded the law by
buying foreign built ships and then
sailing tliem under foreign flags and
with foreign seamen
If this policy of w> called protection
through high larift's is continued much
longer there will be no American ■ eft-
men to man American ships, for even
on those ships used in the coastwise
trade which no foreign ship is allowed
to compete in. Hie majority of the
sailors are loreigners.

policies on financial aud political eco-
nomy. l.ast fall the secretary of tho
reasury, iu his estimates for congress,
aid there would be a surplus revenue
for the year of $12,000,000. but the fact
is there is a deficiency of nearly $60,-
000.000 The experts of the United
States treasury were evidently unable
to see, or refused for political reasons
to notice, that the tide had turned and
the taxppayers were no longer able to
pay, as they had been doing. High
tariff taxes had killed the goose that
had been laying golden eggs for the
trusts, and a panic resulted.
In spite of this enormous falling off
In the revenue of the government, the
Republican party in congress persist-
ed in trying to prove that Republican
policies produced prosperity by mak-
ing even more extravagant approprla
tious than ever before, so that the
amount exceeded 11,008,000,000. That,
vaat sum was appropriated for ex
[tenses for one year, namely, from
July 1, 1908. to June 30. 1909.
It la only a few years ago that th
whole country was startled when it
discovered that the taxpayers were
burdened by a billion-dollar congress,
whereas now when this present con-
gress adjourns on March 4 next it will
be called a two billlen congress, for
the Republicans seem utterly unable
to reduce expenses.
How great the deficiency will be for
the fiscal year just begun cannot be
accurately estimated, but that It will
exceed the deficiency for the year just
closed is most probable, and may be
much greater.
Such great extravagance and such a
falling off in revenue may result in
the secretary of the treasury refusing
to redeem the United States bonds
now due drawing three pet- cent., al-
though the National bunks now hold
over $150,000,000 of government de-
posits.
This strange financial policy of pay-
ing Interest, while at the same time
having the money on hand to pay the
principal would be regarded as the
act of a spendthrift, if a private indi-
vidual. Yet that seems to be the crazy
policy of this strenuous Republican
administrat ion.
