"That Is unfortunate. I stopped

and he smiled the Griswold smile,
which was one of the secrets of his
popularity at the university—"I must

so rudely shook the door. I beg that
you will acquit me of that violence."
The girl did not, however, respond
to his smile. She poked the floor with
her parasol a moment, then raised
her head and asked:
"Who was It, If you please?"
"A gentleman with a brown beard,
a red necktie, and a bad disposition."
"I thought as much," she said, half
to herself, and her eyes were bent
again upon the point of her parasol,
with which she was tracing a design
in the rug. She lifted her head with
the abruptness of quick decision, and
looked straight at Griswold. The
negress had withdrawn to the outer
door, by which she sat with sphinx-

me whether your business with my

"Miss Osborne, as I have no ac-
quaintances here, let me introduce
myself. My name Is Griswold. My
home is Charlottesville. Pardon me,
but you and I were fellow-passengers
from Atlanta yesterday evening. I
am unacquainted with your father,
and 1 have no business with him ex-
He was not yet clear In his mind
whether to tell her that her father's
life was threatened; it did not seem
fair to alarm her when he was power-
less to help; but as he weighed the
question the girl came out into the
reception-room and sat down Dear the
"Won't you have a seat, Mr. Gris-
wold? May I ask you again whether
you know the gentleman who came
In here and beat the door awhile ago?"
"1 never saw him before In my life."
"That is very well. And now, Mr.
Griswold, I am going to ask you to
tell me, if you will, just what it is
you wish to say to my fathet;."
She was very earnest, and the re-
quest she made rang the least bit im-
periously. She now held the white
parasol across her lap in the tight
clasp of her white-gloved hands.
"My reason for wishing to see your
father Is, to warn him that if a crim-
inal named Appleweight is brought
back from his hiding-place on the
North Carolina frontier, and tried for
his crimes in South Carolina, the
governor of that state, your father,
will be made to suffer by Apple-
"That is what I thought," said the
girl, slowly nodding her head.
"And now, to be qrjte honest about
It, Miss Osborne, I must confess that
I received this warning last night
from a man who believed me to be
the governor. To tell the truth, I told
him I was the governor!"
The girl's eyes made a fresh Inven-
tory of Griswold, then she laughed
for the first time—a light laugh of
: honest mirth that' would not be gain-
said. The beautiful color deepened lti
her cheeks; her eyes lighted merrily,
as though at the drollery of Griswold
standing, so to speak, In loco parentis.

I heard what you said to that man. I
had gone to the rear platform to see

girl calmly. "Very llke'y he will be

sworn duty to advise him in such mat-

"There's another side to that, Mr.
Griswold," and the girl's color deep-
ened; but she smiled and went on It
was quite evident that she was ani-
mated now by some purpose, and that
she was resolved to avail herself of
Grlswold's proffered aid.
"This whole matter must be kept
as quiet as possible. I can appeal to

Attempt Is Also Made To Declare
Speakership Vacant But Fails
—New Rules Committee to
Washington,—Speaker Joseph G.
Cannon a sa political entity, was
ground to pieces in a revolution In the
house of representatives Saturday.
By a vote of 191 to 155 the allied
insurgent Republicans and the Demo-
crats ousted him from the committee
on rules, through which he has wield
ed his greatest power and enlarged
that committee from five to ten mem-
By the same vote, reversed—155 to
191—the house, however, declined
to take the speaker's chair away
The real significance of the vote
to depose the speaker was that the
insurgents refused to make a martyr
of him. Further, they re/used ,o
cause a state of chaos by bringing
on the election of a new speaker.
Not only were Cannon and his sup-
porters outvoted, but they were out-
generaled and outfought.
For the speaker himself, though he
died as he often said he would when
his time came, "with his boots on,"
"Yes," said the musician in a reml- .
niscent mood, "my wife fell In love
with me and married me when I was
learning to play the cornet."
"Are you sure," asked his friend,
"that she married you because she
loved you, or to make you stop prac-
ticing on tlie cornet?"

in 24 hours your father will be brand-
ed as a coward by every newspaper in
the state. You seem to take it pretty
coolly, but It won't be a trifling mat-
ter for him."
"I believe," replied the girl, rising,
"that you have said all that I care
to hear from you now or at any fur-
ther time, Mr. Bosworth. about this
or any other matter."
Miss Osborne turned her back and
walked to the window. Bosworth
stared a moment, then rushed angrily
froiu the room. Griswold abandoned
his study of the picture, and gravely
inclined his head as Bosworth passed.
Then he waited a minute. The girl
still stood at the window, and there
was, Griswold felt, something a little
forlorn In her figure. It was quite
time that he was off if he caught his
train for Richmond, lie crossed the
room, and as he approached the win-
dow Jliss Osborne turned quickly.
"It was kind of you to wait. That
man is the state's attorney general.
You doubtless heard what he said to

help hearing. I did not leave, because

The associate professor of admiralty

lights, that Is the distinctive posses-

be able to help me—if it isn't asking
too much—but then I know it is ask-
ing too much!""
"Anything, anything whatever,"
urged Griswold kindly.
"Mr. Bosworth, the attorney general,
warns me that If my father does not
use the power of the state to capture
this outlaw Appleweight, the results
will be disastrous, lie says my fa-

infinite diversion. He had several
j hours to wait for his train to New
! Orleans, and he was delighted to find
j that the bookseller, whom he had
j known only by correspondence, had
j just procured for him, through the

uable library, that exceedingly rare
narrative, "The Golden Galleons of the
Caribbean," by Domingeuz y Pascual
—a beautifully bound copy of the orig-
inal Madrid edition.
With this volume under his arm
Ardmore returned to the hotel where
he was lodged and completed his ar-
rangements for leaving. It should be
known that Mr. Thomas Ardmore
was a person of democratic tastes and
habits. In his New York house were
two servants whose sole business it
was to keep himself and his wardrobe
presentable; yet he preferred to travel
When he had finished packing his
trunk he went down to the dinner he
had ordered to be in readiness at a
certain hour, at a certain table, care-
fully chosen beforehand; for Ardmore
was very exacting in such matters
and had an eye to the comforts of
life, as he understood them.
As he crossed the hwtel lobby on his
way to the restaurant he was accosted
by a reporter for the Atlanta Palla-
dium, who began to question him
touching various Ardmores who were
just then filling rather more than
their usual amount of space In the
newspapers. Ardmore's family, with
the single exception of his sister,
Mrs. Atchison, bored him immensely.
His two bfothers and another sister,
the duchess of Ballywinkle, kept the
family name in display type a great
deal of the time, and their perform-
ances had practically driven Thomas
Ardmore from New York. The re-
porter was a well-mannered youth
and Ardmore shook his hand encour-
agingly. He was rather curious to
see what new incident in the family
history was to be the subject of in-
quisition, and the reporter immediate-
ly set his mind at rest.
"Pardon me, Mr. Ardmore, but is It

The Esthetic Cat.
We do not wish to underestimate
the fine qualities of affection, courage
and sagacity, which are the dog's,
but neither do we like to see the wide-
spread lack of appreciation for the
cat's many admirable traits. Patience,
endurance, good judgment, self con-
trol, self-reliance, high spirits and in-
dustry—many or all of these are pos-
sessed by the average cat.

The most esthetic souls of all times
have cherished the cat. Baudelaire,
Von Scheffel, Poe, De Musset, Henry
Irving, and a host of other lovers of
the beautiful come to mind in this
connection. The silky feline, of pad-
ded footfall and mysterious wander-
ings, has ever appealed to the imagi-
nation, just as she has ever appealed
to the sense of domestic comfort.

he had the courage, the audacity, the
efTrontery, or whatever It may be
called, to retort to the vote that dis-
credited and repudiated him with a
defiance of those who had crushed
him and literally dared them to fol-
low up their victory and throw him
out of the speaker's chair.
It was a history-making session of
the house that brought about the de-
feat of Cannon. Its like was never
beheld before; none of those who
took part in the fight remember the
occasion or an occasion that ap-
proached it is importance.
What will be the definite, tangible
results of the big victory of the al-
lies no one is yet in a position or in
a mind to say.
There will be a new committee on
rules. It will be a Republican com-
mittee, and the insurgents themselves
say they are not sure they will even
have representation upon it.
Its members will first bo selected

Into caucus for that purpose, and
they will be a mighty small minority
The first point was carried by a
clear majority of 17 on the big vote
of the day, the adoption of the Norris
resolution they won by majority of 38.
Both sides were ready for the fray
when the house was convened at
noon. Every man who could be
reached and brought here on time to
take part in the struggle was in the
seat, and those who were absent ap-
peared so few that it was known that
the result would not be affected by

there was applause.

It was deliberate. As was expected,
ho ruled the Norris resolution out of
order. . k *
Norris, the proposer of the resolu-
tion was on his feet to appeal from
the decision of the chair when the
attempt to delay by Redenburg and
Gaines had been swept aside and the
speaker ordered the roll called.
There was so much disorder as the
roll-call progressed that time and
time again members had to appeal
for silence and the speaker also wore
out his new gavel pounding the table
to keep the unruly house In hand.
It was known when the first Insur-
gent answered "No" to his name that
the game was up.
The several votes needed to make
the resolution a rule of the house was
but through with all express possible.
Again the applause of the regulars
broke forth and also the gallei lea
cheered until rebuked.
