the New York delegation, which gave
that state’s ninety votes to Champ

Clark forces outwardly confident and
the Wilson managers doggedly claim
ing that the final “break" would come
to the New Jersey governor.
The Clark managers jubilantly
claimed that every democratic candi
date who ever reached a majority in
the convention always succeeded in
getting the required two-thirds.

The heat in the hall was stifling
and the proceedings dragged heavily.
The delegates gossiped among them
selves or perused newspapers. The
leaders of the various factions hurried
about the hall. The air was full of
rumors of “deals" and “trades.” A
shift that would throw a deciding
vote to one candidate or another was
looked for on every ballot by some
delegates, while others expected an
After the long-predicted break in
the New York delegation a great de
monstration broke out among the
speaker's friends and delegates.
While it was in progress there were
several fisticuffs on the floor.
Murphy announced that the New
York delegation showed eighty-one for
Clark, eight for Wilson and one for
Underwood, but under the unite rule
gave all its ninety votes to Clark.
The first ballot was taken early Fri
day morning, after which adjourn
ment was taken. When the conven
tion met in the afternoon. Chairman
James announced that the roll call
for the presidential nomination would
be resumed at once. Several minutes
were required to clear the floor and
restore order. «
States continued to follow the first
ballot. No changes occurred in the
poll as the vote proceeded through the
list of states, until Massachusetts was
reached. Here one vote bro>-? away
from Clark, who had received the
state's entire thirty-6ix. and was add
ed to the Wilson column.
Another break of one vote from the
Clark to the Wilson standard came in
the New Hampshire delegation. The
speaker received seven and Wilson
one of the second ballot, where he
had received eight on the first.
The accession to the Wilson
strength, while small, was greeted
with a storm of applause from Wilson
A break of two delegates from Un

delegation and two given Underwood

Washington.—The threatened tieup
of the government departments on1
July 1 because of the failure of con
gress to pass the big appropriation
bills is not likely to occur, according
to high officials and members of the
cabinet who talked with President

Washington of of many republican
leaders who aided in the renomination
of President Taft the president learn

Run up Old Glory!
•: Let it blaze
In red and white against the sky ^
And tell the story of the days
When hearts were stout and hopes were high.
Forget the daily fights of greed.
Forget the struggles, the dismay
Of facing cruelty and need—
Run up Old Glory for the day!
Run up Old Glory!
Think of all
The old fisg means to you and me.
Of how the blast of freedom’s call ,
Shook out its folds from sea to sea;
Red -with the blood that it has cost.
White with the souls of them that died.
Today by laughing breezes tossed
It whispers of a nation’s pride.
Run up Old Glory!
Fling it forth
And feel anew the country-call
That thrills east, west and south and north
And has its words for one and all.
Run up Old Glory-—fling it far
Across the blue of heaven’s dome.
And feel that every stripe and star
Is warder of your hearth and home.

A Freckled Cupid
By Wilbur D. Nesbit
It Is not written in books of fate
that the Fourth of July is any day to
propose to a girl.
Christmas day. Thanksgiving day.
New Years day. or any other day will
do, but the Fourth is not romantic;
it is patriotic. On that day a man is
supposed to love his native land. He
is to listen to speeches, or make them,
about the indivisibility of our country
He is to watch the fireworks—where
they are permitted—and not do any
sparking on his own account.
Every day is Fourth of July to some
men. They have made up their minds
that they hope to marry a certain girl,
but when it comes to stating their de
cision the tongue cleaves to the roof
of the mouth and the right arm seems
to have lost its cunning.
Jim Hicks was such a man. When
love making was concerned, all days
were the Fourth for him. Otherwise
his name would have been Armand
Decourcey. As It was. he was Just
what you would expect of a man of
Jim had been “keeping company”
off and on with Luella Miller for a
matter of three years. This guaran
teed him a certain standing as her
“beau.” but what woman wants to go
on forever that way?
L-uella had read plenty of those ;
Chambers stories wherein the dash- .
ing hero meets the beauteous heroine (
at 10:00 a. m., proposes at 11:00. and j
takes the noon train for the wedding j
trip. She wanted a bit more dash in
The trouble is. however, with the
Jim Hickses of this world. that the !
more the women of their choice en
courage them the more their bashfnl
ness increases. It is not entirely
bashfulness, It Is cowardice. Coward
ice is a strong term to use when
speaking of a big. strong man. but it
is nothing else than that which so
terrifies a man when he sees wayward
ringlets of sunny hair, and a white
hand “accidentally” rests upon his for
a moment, or a pair of clear, confiding
eyes look earnestly Into his eyes. At !
snch times snch a man becomes as j
weak as a string, and looks for some
place to hide. He can tell a dozen
men at a time what he thinks of !
them, but he is afraid to tell one tittle ,
This is not to do a tnree-voiume
novel. It Is not going to trace the
psychological growth of Luella's af
fection for Jim nor the subliminal de- ;
velopment of Jim’s attachment for La
ella. Nothing of that sort happened
with them. Neither of them could tell
yon when they made up their minds
that they wanted each other. Only *
analytical amorists can do this.
On Luella's mind was the one im
portant thought which rests upon the
mind of every woman when she has |
found the right man. That was to
make Jim propose. The romantic no
tion that a woman in love is a coy.
■blushing thing, timorous, trembling,
afraid of the great masculine creature,
may be justified in some cases. But
with the Luellas and Jims of this
world it does not obtain. Luella had
exhibited to Jim her deftness as a
cook; she had acquainted him with
her cleverness as a needleworker, she
bad demonstrated over and over that
she would make an ideal wife.
But Jim hadn't proposed.
Consequently, on the Fourth, when
Luella saw Henry Nelson, the bgd boy
sf the village, with a huge cannon
cracker he had kept secreted since !
last year, and which he proposed to |
explode somewhere during the day or I
evening, she made war plans.
“Henry.” she said, "don't you know
it's against the law to have such a
“Aw,” Henry muttered. “I don't
“Well, it is. And if the marshal
finds it out he will put you in the
lockup as an example.”
“Aw! Somebody's always makin’ a
example o' me. I s'pose you’re goin’
to go an' blab on me now.”
"I won’t, if you'll do something for
me—and it will be a whole lo; of
fun for you, Henry.”
“Don't you want to play a good joke
on Jim Hicks?”
“Aw! He’s your feller.”
“Well, anyhow, Henry, I'll tell you
how to play a good joke on him, and
I'll help you to do it. You come up
by our house this evening, and Jim
will be there. Ill get him to stand
at the gate and talk to me. and you i
slip up and set off your big firecracker ,
right behind him. That'll scare him j
half to death, and will be just lots of
fun for you."
"Aw! Wot d'ye want to scare him j
fer?” ; 1
“Well, you know how big and strong j
he is, and how brave he acts. Let's 1
see if we can't get a good one on him. ‘
“Aw! I was goin' to shoot this off |
behind the school teacher."
But at last Luella managed to con- *
rince Henry that he could have more
fun with the cannon cracker by ex
ploding it behind Jim than if he set :
it off anywhere else.
Jim never has understood why Lu- 1
ella was waiting at the gate for him
that evening, nor why she kept him
standing there, talking of the weather
and the crowd down town and this,
that, and everything. It had always
been her custom to greet him at the i
front door, and to express surprise at
seeing him. This is one of the enjoy
able Actions of courtship. i
“I think it is so lovely when the 1
stars come out as they are coming out 1
tonight, don’t you?” Luella was asking 1
Luella shrieked and fainted dead ;
away, apparently, but . she fainted ]
toward Jim in such a manner that the i
gate swung open and she reposed i
limply against his manly bosom
Under the circumstances, there was i
but one thing Jim could do. and that i
was to teep her from falling to the ]
ground. This is best accomplished in i
the case of a fainting lady by placing
vonr arms about her and allowing her <
bead to rest on your shoulder. This <
comes natural to most men. What ! t
else Jim did. and what he said to j
Luella to calm her fears and to re- ,

derisive series of yells and howls of ,

her eyes and ashed dreamily:

Henry shouted: "Aw! He was a- ,

Then Henry turned and fled. Jim
shaking a fist after him.
“Luella," Jim said. “1—I'm ashamed
—but Henry told the truth. When you \
fainted in my arms I just couldn’t !

"Why. Jim!” 1
“An’ now he’ll tell it all over town, 1
an’ I don’t want to have people talkin' '
about you without good reason, so— ]

And then it looked as though Lu
