ojr Brand Whitmjck,
that I should be. I'm ruined, that's
ACCENT ON THE “PUt."
Senator Morley Vernon’* visit with his
fiancee was interrupted by a call from
Ilia political boas at the state capital.
Both regretted it, the girl more than he,
because she had arranged to attend a
dinner that evening with him. She said
she yearned for a national office for him.
On Vernon’s desk in the senate he found
a red rose, accompanied by a plea for
suffrage for women. He met the au-
thoress, pretty Miss Maria Greene of
Chicago, who proposed to convert him
into voting for house resolution No. 19.
Miss Greene secured Vernon’s promise to
vote for the suffrage resolution. He also
aided her by convincing others. He took
a liking to the fair suffragette. Miss
Greene consulted with the lieutenant-gov-
ernor. Vernon admitted to himself that
the suffragette had stirred a strange feel-
ing within him. He forgot to read his
fiancee’s letter. Vernon made a great
speech in favor of suffrage, aided by
glances from Miss Greene. The resolution
was made a special order. Vernon was
enthusiastic on the prospects for the res-
olution. He was much in Miss Greene’s
company. Vernon ndglectod thoughts of
Amelia. He took Miss Greene driving and
laid out plans for the success of the reso-
lution. Vernon’s speech caused a great
newspaper sensation. He was being neg-
lected by Amelia, who had not answered
his letter. Vernon is “tipped off” that his
suffrage resolution may not pass. As
Miss Greene was due the following morn-
ing he had no fears. Miss Greene ar-
rived and breakfasted with Vernon.
Across the dining room entrenched be-
hind women opponents of the suffrage
resolution, he spied Amelia. He started
toward her. She treated him coldly and
the women opponents of suffrage re-
proved him for his part. Mrs. Hodge
l^athrop told Senator Vernon that his
conduct with Miss Greene had been hard
upon Amelia. He was told to comfort
her. Vernon had a tearful interview with
Amelia, and he tried to undo the ills
which Ills suffrage move had caused. He
partially "made up" with Amelia,
___made up" with Amelia, who
turned lobbyist against the resolu-
legisiative lile was just then setting
In toward the senate.
"Oh. Morley,’’ whispered Amelia,
forgetting his offense, and clinging
close to him, "I can't go in there,
really 1 can't.”
"Nonsense,” said Vernon, "come on.
I’ll deliver you to Mrs. Hodge-La-
throp in a minute; then you’ll be per-
fectly safe. Resides, you have your
lobbying to do."
They reached the senate entrance,
and the doorkeeper, seeing a senator,
opened a way through the crowd for
tljelr passage. There was confusion
everywhere, the nervous and excited
hum of voices from the floor, from the
vestibule, from the galleries, from all
around. And Just as they stepped up
to the raised floor whereon the desks
of senators are placed, the gavel fell,
and stillness with it. They saw the
lieutenant governor leaning over his
desk, studying a slip of paper he held
In his hand.
“On this question,” he said, “the
yeas are 30 and the nays are 17; and
two-thirds of the members-elect hav-
ing failed to vote in the affirmative,
the resolution Is lost.”
Vernon Btood transfixed. The whole
all; I'm lost."
"No. Morley,” said Mrs. Hodge-Lo-
throp, "you’re saved. You're saved
from yourself.” She still smiled at
him sweetly. "You might have made,
don’t you know, another one of your
Vernon bit his lip and walked away.
He encountered Martin, but could only
look at him helplessly. Martin re-
turned his look with one of surprise.
"You here?" he said.
"Well, yes," replied Vernon. "At
last—too late, it seems.”
The surprise had not left Martin's
face; to it was now added a perplex-
“If we'd known," said Martin; "but
we thought, that is, we heard, that you
Vernon shook his head as with a
pain that would not let him speak. He
was looking disconsolately across the
chamber to where Miss Greene stood
talking with Rull Burns. As in a
dream, he heard Mrs. Overman Hodge-
"Ah, there is that Greene woman!”
Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop was
lifting her gold glasses again. Vernon
was wondering how he was to face
the Greene woman. But at Mrs. Over-
man Hodge-Lathrop’s words an idea
came to him.
"I’ll go bring her and Introduce
her,” he said. He bolted away and
went toward her. She was cold and
distant. Fortunately, Burns fled at
“Can you forgive me?" he said. "I'll
explain it all in an instant.”
“And how?” she asked with a chill
rise In her tone.
"Have you ever met Mrs. Overman
Hodge-Lathrop?” he asked signifi-
"No," she answered.
“Then permit me," he said. 8h«
went with him. Mrs. Overman Hodge
Lathrop had withdrawn her delega
tlon to the rear of the chamber, and
there awaited Vernon’s return.
“Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop, per
mit me to present Miss Greene; Miss
Ansley, Miss Greene.” And so on. In
the order of relative rank, he Intro-
duced her to the other ladies.

Amelia got up.
“I'll go, too,” she said. She was
still catching little sobs In her throat,
now and then. Vernon looked at her
in some surprise.
“Why—” he began, Incredulously.
She must have divined hta surprise.
"I have to help Mrs. Hodge-La-
throp,” she said, as If in explanation.
“But, of course, I hate to bother you."
"Oh, nonsense, dearest," he said.
Impatiently. "Come on. Let’s start.”
"But I can’t go looking this way,”
she said. She walked across the room,
and standing before a mirror, wiped
her eyes carefully, then arranged her
hat and her veil.
"Would anybody know?” she asked,
facing about for his inspection.
They went out, and down the eleva-
tor. When they reached the entrance,
Vernon looked up and down the street.
but there was no carriage in sight.
The street was quiet and the hotel
wore an air of desertion, telling that
all the political activity of Illinois had
been transferred to the state house.
Vernon looked around the corner, but
the old hack that always stood there
was not at its post.
"We’ll have to walk,” he said. “It’ll
take too long for them to get a car-
riage around for us. It’s only a few
blocks, anyway. The air will do you-
As they set forth in the bright
morning sun they were calmer, and,
having come out Into public view, for
the time being they dropped their dif-
ferences and their misunderstandings,
aad began to talk in their common,
“Did Mrs. Hodge-Lathrop ask you
to change me on the Ames amend-
ment?” Vernon asked her.
‘The Ames amendment; that’s the
"No, do her justice; she didn’t.”
“She said she wanted me to work
against it, that's sli.”
“Didn't she say anything about ask-
ing me not to vote for It?”
“Well, yes; but I told her—”
“That I wouldn’t try to Influence
you In the least.”
Vernon made no reply.
“No,” she went on, ‘Tin to work
sgalnst it, of course.”
They were silent then, till sudden-
ly she appealed to him:
“Oh, Morley, I’ve got to ask strange
men, men I never met, to vote agalnat
it! How am I ever!"
“It’s all very strange," Vernon said.
They walked briskly down the slo-
ping street under the railroad bridge
and then up the little bill whereon
aits the capltol of Illinois. They
could see the big flew high upon the
dome standing out in the prairie wind,
and the little flags on the house wing
and the senate wing whipping Joyous-
ly, sprightly symbols of the sitting of
Now and then they heard cheers
from the house wing, where the legis-
lative riot that ends a session was al-
ready beginning. They passed into
the dark and cool corridors of the
state house, then up to the third
floor, where members and messenger
boys, correspondents and page boys,
rushed always across from one house
to the other, swinging hurriedly
around the brass railing of the ro-
tunda. It teamed that the tide of

In such a condition that I was unable i

tried home remedies without relief.
Then I decided to go to our family
physician, but he didn't help them.
Then I tried two more of our most
prominent physicians, but my eyes
grew continually worse. At this time
a friend of mine advised me to try

about one week my eyea were con-
siderably improved, and in two weeks
they were almost well. They have

WHY HE LIKED TIGHT SHOES
Little Remark That Threw Great
Light on the Home Conditions
of Amos Core.
“We always wondered a little how
Amos Dore and his wife got along—
really," "Aunt Em” Macomber said,
frankly. “Some In the neighborhood
said they'd never overheard a single
loud or cross word on either side, but
Llje Daniels always stuck to It that
Amos was as mts'able at home as a
man could be.
'* He never spoke right out till Amos
died and Mis’ Dore went back up-
country to her folks. Then he let
"What?” queried Aunt Em’s visitor.
’’Well, Amos worked logging along-
side of IJJe every winter, and sum-
mers they hayed together most al-
ways, and It seems,” said Aunt Em, Im-
pressively, “that Amos complained of
his shoes hurting him about all the
time. Finally Llje asked why he wore

enough?’ says Llje, one day.
’“Well, I’ll tell you,’ Amos eaye.

my other troubles.’ ”—Youth’s Com-

thing wbb borne In upon him; he saw
Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop, and the
expression of calm and lofty satisfac-
tion that had settled on her face told
him that it was the Ames amendment
that had been lost. But some new
thought seemed to strike her, for when
Senator Porter looked around with
something like a smile of congratula-
tion, she beckoned him, and he has-
tened to her side.
"Move to reconsider and to lay on
the table,” she said, and with a look
of admiration he turned and made
the motion. It was put. It was carried
of course, and the amendment was
“Well, that’s attended to,” said Mrs.
Overman Hodge-Lathrop. “Ah, Mor-
ley,” she said calmly, "you here? And
“She’s here,” he said, “and I—I did
not get here on time!” The shame and
mortification on his face were pitiable,
though they could not have touched
Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop’s heart.
“And I didn’t get here on time,”
he repeated, ruefully.
“Why, my dear boy,” said Mrs.
Overman Hodge-Lathrop, "I didn’t in-
tend that you should."
He looked at her fiercely, angrily,
"So that was the game, was It?” he
said. He whirled, with another Berce
look,, on Amelia.
“That was the game, yes. Morley,"
said Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop,
“but you needn't look at Amelia so—
she was utterly innocent, the dear

“Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop,”

• Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop
seemed, to the eye, to swell.
"You have a charming little city
here, Mrs. Lathrop. We poor Chl-
cagoans love to get down into the
country once in a while, you know.”
Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop
reared back a little.
“No doubt,” she stammered. "I
have always found It so.”
Miss Oreene feigned surprise, and
affected a look of perplexity. Vernon
withdrew a step, and with his chin In
his hand looked on out of eyes that
gloated. The other women in the
party exchanged glances of horror and
wrath. Mrs. Barbourton, for her part,
seemed unable to endure It.
"Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop lives
in Chicago,” she interjected.
"Oh!” cried Miss Oreene. “Is it
possible? How very strange that one
could live In the city all one's life
and not have heard!"
"Not so very strange, I fancy,” said
Mrs. Overman Hodge-Lathrop. "One's
circle Is apt to be so far removed."
“Yes?" said Miss Greene, with that
rising Inflection. "Then you can not
have lived in Chicago long?"

mother the other evening. It was

home and the little fellow waa very
