When tho tclegrttin came nt break
fast tlmn Rutherford gavo u low
whlstlo nftor glancing nt it. Then ho
paused It across the tnblo to his wlfo.
"Cloodtipsp, Dlekt Ih Cousin Hnrah
coining?" asked Mm. Rutherford in n
tono of not altogether pleased r.ur-
"That's what sho says, Isn't It?" ro
piled Rutherford. "What time does
the i-ay she will arrive?"
"'('onilni; today on 2--I0 train;
plcniuj meet mo.'" rend Mrs. Rutlicr
ford. "That lets mo out." chuckled Ruth
erford. "I'll he In court nt 2.-10 this
afternoon. You'll havo tho pleasure
of going to tho train. Natalie."
"Hut I'm engaged for a bridge par
ty." "Well, my dear girl, you know
cousin Sarah will, never forgive us If
who U not met at the station with due
ceremony. You don't want her to
change her will, do you?"
"Of course not," Mrs. Rutherford
laughed. "But sometimes, Dick, I Just
wish your cousin Sarah had never
mentioned her gonerous Intentions."
Rutherford was hurrying for his cr.r
when Natalie called to him to know
to which station she was to go.
"Why, the Well, I don't know.
There aro two roads passing through
Cornersvllle. I'll look up the train
and telephone you at noon."
While waiting to hear from her hus
band Mm. Rutherford phoned her
most abject apologies to Mrs. Em
mons. "I quite understand the situation,"
said the discomfited hostess, gra
ciously, "and If you'll only find me a
substitute I shall be most grateful,
for I'm too busy to hunt up any one
Then Mrs. Rutherford, with all the
tact sho possessed, began calling up
her friends, but no one appeared In
clined to play bridge as an accommo
dation at a party to which she had
not been Invited. All sorts of seem
ingly valid excuses In the way of
previous engagements aud 111 henlth
were given until In despair Mrs.
Rutherford Induced her former bridge
teacher to take her place at the price
of one afternoon's lesson.
"Well, cousin Sarah's visits come
hlgb, but we must hare them," re
marked Rutherford when, ou telephon
ing his wife, she mentioned this ar
rangement. "Now, about the train. I
And there Is no 2:40 train on either
road. But there's a 2:30 on the Mil
waukee and a 2:35 on the Northwest
ern. Doth will have to be mot."
"Well, I can't be in two places at
"Even I realUe that." replied Ruth
erford with mock humility. "I'll sond
Miss Thornton to the union station,
though we're ho bony In the oftlco 1
don't .seo how wo can spare her, but
I guess it's the only way You re
member she wrote -somo loiters for
cousin Surah the last time sho was In
town, so she'll know her all r.lghl."
At 3 o'clock Mrs. Rutherford, enter
ing the office building, met the
stenographer at the entrance,
"Why, Miss Thornton, didn't you
meet our cousin?" she asked.
"She wasn't at the union station,"
was the answer. "I saw the train
come In nnd I looked at every pas
senger. I thought she had come on
the other road."
"Well, sho didn't." asserted Mrs.
Rutherford laughed that evening at
dinner, but his wife knew that he was
disturbed by tho non-arrival of his
"Just lost her train, probably," ho
said after they had discussed tho mat
ter. "We'll certainly hear from her In
tho morning mail."
At 1:30 they wore awakened from
deep sleep by tho loud and persistent
ringing or tho boll, and Rutherford,
rousing hlmsoir. hastily threw on a
bathrobe and rushed to tho door.
"Why, cousin Sarah, you bore?"
Natnlio heard him oxclulm.
'Yes, I'm bore, nnd such a time as
I've had. I've been sitting In that
depot nearly two hours, thinking
every mlnuto you'd come. I got so
vexed I Just about decided to stay
right there nnd tako tho early train
back to CornerBVllle this morning."
"You poor dear." Natallo ran down
stairs nnd kissed tho bclatod Kuost as
warmly as that angular nnd nngry
person would porson. "I'm nfrald you
didn't telegraph us tho right train. Wo
went to two stations this nftornoon."
"This afternoon! How could you
expect mo this afternoon when I wir
ed I'd tako tho 2:40 train and you,
Richard, at least, ought to know thnt
It takes nlno hours to coma down
"I kuoss you'll have to bo patient
and forgive us, cousin Sarah." Ruth
erford looked solemnly penitent. "Na
tallo and I aren't very smart about
trains. Of course, there was no rea
son in the world for us to fancy for a
minute that you were due here this
afternoon. We're pretty stupid, aren't
"Well, It's all over now and If I
can get a bite to eat and a good sleep
tonight, like enough I'll wake up In a
real good humor tomorrow."
Rutherford smiled sleepily when his
wife came Into their room 'an hour
"I think the will's safe," he mur
mured. "Oh, bother the wllll- retorted Mrs.'

At the Capital
of the Nation
Washington, D. C, June i!C The
Democrats in Congress are making
good tho pledges that they made to
the people last fall. The house of
representatives, which Is overwhelm
ingly Democratic, has passed the wool
bill by n majority of two to one. This
bill cuts the duty in half ou raw wool
nnd makes n like reduction In the
tariff on manufactured woolen goods.
The eiToct of this bill, If it ever be
comes a law, will be to enable tho
poor people and the middle classes to
buy woolen Roods nt reasonable prices,
a blessing that they havo not enjoyed
during the reign of Republicanism
which began in the year 1807 under
William McKinley. It is uncertain
what the fato of this bill will be
when the senate acts ou it, as the sen
ate is still overwhelmingly Republi
can. President Taft Is just now placed In
n most singular position, nnd, from a
partisan standpoint, a very embar
rassing one. The most aggressive sup
port that Ills Canadian reciprocity bill
has received iu the senate comes from
the Democratic members, who regard
it as a step in the right direction, but
it great many Republicans are openly
and ninny others are secretly oppos
ing the passage of this biM, which
was so promptly passed by the Dem
The Democrats are ulso endeavoring
to establish a parcels uost in the post
olllce department, which all European
countries enjoy, by allowing articles
of not over eleven pounds iu weight to
be curried by the mails at. u reason
able rate. However, tho Ad urns K.v
piess company, the Southern Express
company, Iho Wclls-Fargo Express
company and the United States Ex
press company are working with undi
minished courage through their own
attorneys nnd the mnny Uuitcd
States senators whom they absolutely
own to prevent the government from
establishing this measure.
Some of the fruits of the Democratic
victory last fall are beginning to de
velop In the departments. A number
of small acts of burglary by the Re
publicans in Washington have been
unearthed. I'or instance, the picture
of William R. Day, who wus secretary
of state during it part of McKinley's
administration, was painted at the ex
pense, of the government. The painter
swears that he received fSotl for the
painting and that ho signed a voucher
in blank. The voucher was then lllled
out, making it appear Hint tho painter
received S2150 for tho painting. In
other words, somo of thohlgthiovos in
the State Department robbed Uncle
Sam out of SICOo on tho price of that
painting It has alfo developed that
Senator Hale's son received .i000 for
doing mi imaginary service for the
tiovernment. Senator Hale was u
grent Itepublioan powor in the Senate
for !I0 years, nnd of course his power
becntue so grent that his friends and
relatives enjoyed very unusual privil
eges in regard to Uncle Sam's money.
The Democrats in Congress aro look
ing into all sorts of nooks aud corners
and it is expected thnt mnny moro
acts by big thieves will be discovered
in the near future.
