HONORS FOR DEAD SENANOR
Itcitiuln of C. K. I)ul Mo In Stale at
S'or five hours Friday, Nor. 31, the
stream of people of all ages and con
ditions slowly illed through tho gover
nor's rooms in the state enpltol to take
a last look on the silent and lifeless
body which has for sixty-two years
housed tho spirit and chir brain of
Cushninn Kellogg Davis, former gover
nor of Minnesota .and thirteen lye'tus
In the senate of the United States.
The occasion was an impressive
one, and even the smallest of the
many children who were in the long
line seemed to realle the loss that hart
come to the state of Minnesota and
the nation. Nearly 20,000 people passed
the silent form, paying their last tri
bute of respect with a look of regret
and In some cases with a sob as if of
a personal loss. Not alone the people
of his home city, but from till parts of
the state emtio cltlens of all creeds
and politics, of all colors and condi
tions in life to show their esteem for
the honored dead.
The military escort, which, con
sisted of Company I) of the First regi
ment, Minnesota national guard, under
Captain M. L. Merrill, most of whom
were veterans of the Philippine cam
paign as members of the famous Thir
teenth Minnesota volunteers, and a de
tachment of Halt cry A, Minnesota na
tional guard, utider Lieutenant Allen,
acted as body bearers. Leaving
the house the funeral procession head
ed by mounted and foot detachments
of police, marched slowly to the enpltol.
Thoeotlln was carried between lines
of mourning eltieus Into the build
ing, where It was placed on rt catafal
que in the governor's south chamber.
The main eorrlder of the building was
dinp-d simply In somber crape. In
the center of the chamber lay the body,
underneath a chandelier, hung with
crepe mid snillax.
The escort formed in double column
nt once, and the waiting assemblage
of people, representing all classes of
society, passejl slowly by the open cof
Iln to take a last look at the man who
had houoied his slate whilo sering it.

Juhllantly, as he tliew up his chair to
the little round siippiir table, from
which Diana had risen to meet him
Paul had bo often brought home
fortunes that seemed at his nng-M'
ends fortunes that crumpled into dust
ere they were graHped- that alio felt
little or no interest In them now. Shu
was growing tired of the whole thing,
particularly as she was now cut off
from all participation Iu her huab.iud's
more Intellectual Venturis.
"I can't, see whnt uood It's uolnc to
do you," she. said at last, when he had
explained. "I guess this girl ain't i;o
ing to die off to milt you, Paul, and yon
can't live on that bit of paper."
"What fools women are!" Riivngely
broke In Paul. And his dark fare took
on an uejy look as he remembered that
men, likewise, could be fools, when
they saddled themselves with such
burdens as that of the heavy, dejected
woman opposite him.
"I'm going to Europe tomorrow
to England." he said shortly.
Diana looked up from her pie. "Shall
you he gone long this time, Paul?"
"1 can't quite say," slowly said the
selentlst. "It will depend on many
things. Hut I promise you. Diana, that
1 shan't come back until I've got this
in my clutch In hard cash." Paul's
lingers jilayed with the sheet of paper
outspread before him.
Diana Andsell shivered, nnd her
while, full- face grew still more pallid
In hue. That thlu man, her husband,
was capable of the vilest scheming to
win his way she already knew. Noth

plotter. And as hIio furtively watched

The misshapen girl looked on nlrnost

kissed the angry eyes.

"Hush!" Lnlla winced at Syh'a Inst

wrung the heart of the gentlu speaker.
"And, Syb, can't you take It In, oncu

the world to snatch at as much Imp-
plncss and sclf-pte.iuing us we can? In
order to copy our dear Lord, even
faintly, we must each give up some
thing, and go on giving up until the
end comes. If tlervls had not given

have been wrecked, his parents would
hate been beggars. 1 I think It a

"Foru me? Could you, lella? Such
a miserable, humpy, crooked little

Syb's lips quivered.
"What mutters It whether our bodies
are straight or crooked? It Is our

"Hut shall you, U'lla?" Syb stared,
"Shall you really welcome her nnd ho
nice to her you?" she demanded,
wonderstruck ut such a possibility.
"God helping me, I shall," gravely
snid Leila, and she meant It.
It was not that her old lovo for
Oervls had died a sudden death; but
because he was now tho husband of
another woman, bound to love and
caro for her "until death them did
part," that lcll.i could put him out
of Iter life, save au tho man who had
saved his old home nnd his parents
fiom earthly ruin.
If Oervls could attain to such a sac
rifice us he had made, could she her
self not Imitate his self-abnegation In
her life? And the passion-distraught

somehow, and taught to welcome the

It was a cl 1 111 cult tusk to persundo tho
untamable spirit. Though Syb was but

poor little body.
"I should like to see hor lying dend

"That's why I keep on wishing

"Happen to whom?" Lady Jane's
voice startled tho sltterB, and Syb slip
