GLOW OF WINTER'S "FIRESIDE
Farewell to the Vanishing- Opea Flra,
Banished by Modern Con
traptions, With tha coming of long evenings that
mark winter's approach, the home-loving
man, his feet on the radiator and his
pipe In his mouth, lata his wandering
fancy hark back In unconscious atavism
to the biasing hearth of song and story,
with its group of blithe faces gathered
around In an arc of kindliness and good
cheer. Yet most of the present-day flat
dwellers know the open fire and the
lively group around It only from history
and hearsay. This generation has, for
the most part, had to warm Itself suc
cessively at the parlor stove, the register
and the radiator. Only the elders with
frosted hair have remembrance of the
open fire; deep In their hearts they know
what the hearth has meant In the family
life of years gone by.
It was a social center, the old open fire
place, with Its polished firedogs and Its
red sparks from the sputtering hickory
logs swarming up the chimney. It warmed
the cockles of the heart, expanded the
generous qualities of companionship, and,
melting the too sharp outlines that some
times separated the "me and thee" of old
courtship nights, made a hospitable air of
sympathy and fellowship instead. True,
the young lover, to his discontent, some
times found that the comfortable miscel
lany of an evening at home around the
fire afforded neither the time nor place
for solitary withdrawals or the tete-a-tete
dearer to his heart. The fireside group
was an alembic that distilled the aroma
and' essence of home life, a forga that
riveted the natural ties of blood Into a
still sweeter kinship of spirit.
Something vital went out of home life
when they walled up the old fireplace,
but the Integrity of the family circle was
tempered and wrought too truly to be
rent asunder by such empty solaces as
the register and radiator. Bereft of its
Ufeglvlng center, behold, then, the family
circle drawn around the evening lamp a
student lamp or an argand burner. Inno
cent or nouveau art forms or roycrofter's
craft. With Its change of base the family
group now took on a new character; It
became less expansive, more thoughtful;
It segregated Into Individuals of separate
preoccupations, as study, reading, work.
It became less communicative, though It
still held to somewhat of Its old solidarity.
But the light-bearing center table of the
back parlor was the last stronghold of
the group Idea In family life. With the
waning of its vogue, the decline of the
family group, like the decline of Rome,
has been Insidious, gradual, but sure.
Tho cozy corner, with its smothered
scenic lighting, the piano lamp, the wall
sconce which women of uncertain years
find so kindly and the persistent,
peftdant. chandelier. Itself eternal,
changeless as the fixed idea It springs
from all these alien and barbarian In
truders have broken up the living room
Into an assembly of special features in
which the reading lamp Is only a casual
and negligible episode, if. perchance, 11
Is to be found at all. Too often the stay-at-home
man, with all the best intentions
In the world and all the accessories of
Dine, slippers and Morris chair Is frus
trated and brought to naught In his en
deavors by the aDsence or mat une utcu
ful thing a light near enough, clear
enough, mellow enough to create ihe Illu
sion of that Intimacy, comfort and cheer
for which his heart Inherits a craving
from his f ire-worshiping, hearth-hovering
Scattered now Is the family group, its
disintegration due to the removal of tho
magnetic center. The lure of light and
warmth Is an old. old one, and the tradi
tions of their association with the sweet
ness of horn He deep in the human
breast. There are moments In the life
of every man and of nearly every woman
when the open fire and an intimate light
near by. but not too near by, "were
puiadlse enow." Such moments should
be Indulged end prolonged. In Ihe real
home the opportunity for their encourage
ment ought to be permanently Installed.
It Is as truly necessary as bed and board.
AT THE LAST MINUTE
How Quick Thinking; Led to Having;
the Presidency for Hayes
Speaking of minor Incidents that deter
mine great events:
If the managing editor of the New York
Times. In 1876. had been a man readily dls.
couraged, the chances are that Tllden would
have succet-ded Grant In the White Moush.
But because he was hopeful and a promi
nent democrat was timorous, thf office was
awarded to Hayes. It happened this way:
On the morning of November g, 174,
every New York newspaper except two
the Herald and the Times virtually re
corded Tilden's election. The Herald ques
tioned Ihe outcome with the headline,
"Which Is Elected?" The Times, then a
republican newspaper, claimed a majority
of one for Haves In the electoral college
and otfeird a detailed siatemtnt tu hack
Its assertion. To do this it had reversed
the statement In Its midnight edition thst
victory' was with the democrats.
This reversal was based solely on a curi
ous circumstance. Bhortly after midnight
a messenger boy brought a note to John C.

from Senator Barnum, a personal friend

of Held's who had been chairman of the
democratic national committee and was
then chairman of the executive committee.
It Inquired briefly If the Times had news
from Florida. South Carolina. Oregon and
Now the significance of the Inquiry lay
in the fact that these four states had
twenty-lwo electoral votes and that if they
could be transferred from Tllden to Hayes
they would elect the republican candidate
by a plurality of one. With those states
democratic the vote stood 206 for Tllden to
13 for Hayes. If they were republican
Tllden would have only 184 to Hayes' 185.
Mr. Held, being trained by his newspaper
experience to be on the lookout for juet
such odd combinations, figured out this
arithmetical problem before he replied to
Barnum. Its obvious corollary at once oc
curred to him. Evidently the democrats
weren't quite certain of those four states.
That was data enough for him. He replied
at once that the republicans had carried all
four. Then he stopped the presses and got
out a new edition claiming the election of
Hayes, after which he posted off to the
Fifth Avenue hotel, where he found that
