credible that she would do this if he

truth has come out. You don't have to

At this moment Mary herself, a great
happiness shining in her face, although
her eyes were wet with tears, joined
the group. Colonel Strickland turned to
her with a smile.

Dick Cantri'l,' editor of the Nineveh
Blade, Colonel Strickland's home or
gan, enterprisingly arranged for a bul
letin service of election returns on the
night of the primary vote, and Colone".
Todhunter and the Hon. William J.
Strickland were among the first to ar
rive at the Blade oliice that evening.
Dick himself, with Lycurgus Qnivey
as his assistant, was to handle the bul
letins, the poet schoolmaster's most ar
duous assignment being that of keep
ing the Blade devil' in swift action
between the newspaper riant and the
telegraph office across the street There
was a quite considerable gathering of
Nineveh's voters to hear what news
might come, and much speculation as
to the result was being voiced.
"What do you think about it novr.
Bill?" asked Colonel Todhunter as the
candidate appeared on the scene.
"Just the same as I've been saying
right along here lately," replied Colo
nel Strickland quietly. "I'll go into

tever hears the last of it"
Mary blushed furiously as the others
"When she. and Tom are married!"
repeated Colonel Strickland, his eyes
resting fondly on Mary's face- "Doesn't
that sound good, though?"'
Then he turned pointblank to Mrs.
Todhunter. "When shall it be, Mrs.
Todhunter?" he asked. "You andJMiss
Mary 'have got to be good now and
name an early day. When shall it be?"
But at this alarming question Mary
herself gave a little cry of maidenly
protest, frantically clutched her moth
er's arm and fairly dragged Mrs. Tod
hunter out of range, yet not with entire
success, for the latter turned a laugh
lug face back to Colonel Strickland as
she was thus convoyed away.
"Never you mind. Colonel Strick
land," she made fleeing answer. "I'm
going to work hard for Tom. .1 ought
to do it, and I will."
That snie evening Colonel Todhun
ter went to confer with the Hon. Wi?
liam J. Strickland at his home concern
ing the latter's campaign prospects.
The outlook was not encouraging.
"Bill," said Colonel Todhunter.
"there's just one chance for us. Tom's
acquittal may bring about a reaction o
public sentiment in your favor if two
driys is time enough for the news to
sink in and create the" natural effect.

Then, the bulletins began to come in
swift succession. The Blade's editor
read them breathlessly.
Suddenly his voice, sounding a note
of apprehension, rang out:
" 'Kansas City gives Yancey a plu
rality of 12,003 "
Dead silence followed the announce
ment. Colonel Bill Strickland laid down the
pencil with which he had been figuring.
"That settles it, gentlemen," he said.
"We're done for."
"We ain't heard from St, Louis yet.
Bill," suggested Colonel Todhunter.
"We don't need to wait for St. Lou
