CONISTON was n smnll village
upon a shelf on a mountain
side, commanding ono of the
gorgeous views characteristic of n lit
tle commonwealth which has mnny n
lnrcor sister state, but none worthier.
The politics of the place was under
tho control of the Church pnrty, which
something more than three-n.uarters of
a century ago held nway over many
of the towns of New England. But
tho career of "Old Hickory" was giv
ing n new Impulse to democracy and
portended little good to any ruling
class, whntovcr its virtues. AH that
was needed was a lender and ono was
found In a young man nnmed Jethro
Unss, who was tho son of n well-to-do,
tanner. Jethro Inherited from his fa
ther u snug little fortune, but his edu
cation had been almost wholly neg
lected. Ho skillfully made use of the
rising discontent by nppenls to ambi
tion nnd personal Interest. It became
clear that the ruling pnrty was to be
challenged at tho coming town meet
ing and so presumptuous n thing
stirred society to its depths.
The spiritual leader of tho Church
' party wns tho clergymnn. His lovely
I (laughter, Cynthln, filled n largo place
in the eyes of Jethro nnd sho wns
drawn to him by the unmlstnkablo
signs of power npparent under bis
awkward exterior. They used some
times to meet by chance, and, unlike
ns thoy woro In point of cultivation,
they woro really very much In love
wltli each other, n clrcutnstanco thnt
had rntlicr to bo Inferred becnuso Jeth
ro was little likely to exerclso the
Initiative and say anything nbout it.
Once when In Boston lie bought a
beautiful locket und had engrnved
upon it "Cynthln from Jethro," but he
never mustered up tho courage to pre
sent It. When tho political tempest
wns rising Cynthln, who sympathized
strongly with her father's party, de
cided to go to Jethro and plead with
him to stop the light. Before he
know her purposo he broke his silence
nnd declared his love. Perhaps if ho
hntl been given n clinnco for rellectlon
nnd had not been so upset by his own
confession ho would have granted her
request, but thnt did not seem possi
ble nt the moment. Cynthia took his
refusal ns n decree of separation; nnd
she left him never to see him again
and ho set out upon tho enreer which
ended In his becoming tho uncrowned
king of tho state.
The town meeting light went on nnd
Jethro was chosen llrst selectmnn. the
only olllco ho ever held nnd In which
ho continued for 5511 years. Cynthln
went to Boston, where sho became
teacher in a high school, and In tho
courso of time innrrled William Weth
erlll, tho clerk who had sold Jethro
tho locket. Sho first learned nbout
tho loeket from her husbnnd nnd con
fessed to htm her lovo for Jethro,
After a few years she died, leaving u
llttlo girl who horn her name. Weth
erlll moved to Conlston, tnklng young
Cynthln with him, and went to keep
lng tho vlllngo store.
In tho years thnt hnd gono by Jethro
had found Conlston too smnll nnd wns
engaged In carrying on tho govern
ment of tho stnto. Ho hnd his llcutcn
nnts In every county und possessed
such nn organization thnt ho wns able
to solect most of tho men who held tho
Urrportnnt olllces nud to control their
nctli.ni afterwards. In brief, ho be
came tho "Boss" of tho stuto nnd peo
ple who desired legislation or ofllces
found It necessary to visit him, Avn
nw did not soem to bo tho motive
which controlled him. Bnllroads were
being built, mnnufucturlng developed,
nnd ho took prldo In making himself
Indlspcnsnblo in what was going on.
When llttlo Cynthln nppearcd nt Con
lston ho nt once loved her ns ho would
have loved his own daughter. Her
father was unablo to meet his obliga
tions nt tho bank. Jethro quietly
bought tho mortgage nnd had It as
signed to himself. Cynthia used to
call him Undo Jethro nnd loved him
as sho 'did her fntlier.
After a tlmo tho railroad corpora
tions decided to consolidate. Jethro,
whether ho feared that thoy would be
come too large for the state, or for
him, did not approve of consolidation.
Thereupon they decided to overthrow
him. The fight begnn over his home
post office. He wns known to favor an
old soldier named Eph Prescott who
hnd been badly wounded in the Wil
derness nnd whom he had helped In
his uphill fight as he had helped many
another person. Tho railroad party de
cided to defeat Jethro's candidate in
order to weaken his prestige In tho
stnto, nnd It had tho support of many
men who had formerly done his "'bid
ding and of tho "congressman from
tho district," tho usual nutocrat In the
distribution of olllces of that class.
Jethro went to Washington nnd con
trived to have an nppnrently chance
meeting between President Grant and
Eph. Grant wns nttrncted by Eph's
simplicity. They talked over tho bat
tle they had fought together with a
modesty which furnished another in
stance that tho noisiest patriots aro
not always the greatest. Grnnt ap
pointed Eph. When tho news of tho
victory reached homo, Jethro's pres
tige was much incrensed.
Ho placed Cynthia in a finishing
school In Boston. Being a young wom
an of high spirit Bhe was not happy
there. The fact that she camo from
n remote country place and of nn un
known fnmlly, very likely had some
thing to do with the trentment she re
ceived in those primitive days before
finishing schools hnd been made whol
ly safe for democracy. One day a pa
per controlled by Isaac Worthlngton,
the head of tho corporation party,
made a savnge attack upon Jethro as
n lobbyist nnd n "boss." Tho paper
found Its way Into Cynthia's hands
nnd gnve her the greatest distress.
Sho went to Jethro nnd nsked him If
tho story wns true, no said: "Thoy
hain't put it just ns they'd ought to
perhaps, but that's tho way I done
it in the main." His manly confes
sion caused her to lovo him even more
than before. Sho withdrew from tho
finishing school nnd went to tench in
Brampton, the town In which Worth
lngton lived. Jethro, shaken by tho
effect on Cynthln, determined to with
draw from politics.
Tho stnto was in a ferment. Would
tho corporations be able to down Jeth
ro? For the first time in nearly 40
yenrs Jothro did not appear nt tho
Conlston town meeting. The onemy
won by default. The npws heartened
tho corporations everywhere. Worth
lngton hnd always been nn enemy of
Jethro's, although ho had accepted his
help more than once, nnd while In
dulging In very virtuous speeches, hnd
practiced essentially the snmo meth
ods. Ills son, Bob, wns madly in lovo
with Cynthln, but sho subordinated
her own love for Bob completely to
her fidelity to Jethro. Bob proposed
to her nnd she refused. Ho declared
thnt ho would leave, Ills father and
earn his own living nnd then clnim
her on account of what he had him
self done, no wrote his father tell
ing him Ids purpose. When the latter
received the letter he flow 110 rage.
Learning that Cynthia wns a teacher
In his own town, he called the commit
tee together, tho mnjority of whom ha
controlled, nnd hnd them pnss a voto
Ignomlnlously dismissing her from tho
school. This action aroused Jethro
nnd he straightway took up tho battlo
again against tho corporation magnato
responsible tor the outrage. Ho
swooped down upon tho capltol llko
an eagle, nis genius for political gen
eralshlp Hashed out with Its old-tlmo
brightness. Messnges went to tho val
ley towns nnd to tho north country.
The "throne room" wns open again,
nnd although tho hnttle had been npl
parently lost through Jethro's wlth
drawal, it became evident thnt tho
corporations were destined to defeat.
Flnnlly Worthlngton was willing to
surrender nnd asked Jethro's terms.
Jothro snld, "Consent to the mnrrlngo
of Cynthln nnd Bob." Worthlngton com
piled In some high flown letters and
tho mnrrlngo took plnce. Jethro with
drew from the tight nnd from politics
nnd passed his old ago near Cynthln,
blessed by her love nnd thnt of her
children. (With apologies to air. Win
ston Churchill).
