A BANK PRESIDENT.
I saw whole row of 'em the other day in a small country town
(there's where they grow the wearers of the laurel, and the crown
of financial renown) all In a blessed row In all stages of '1st kid
hood! I slowed my car down so I might see them well, as they
camped like ft company of rabbits on a grassy bank. This Isn't all
of them never nor . Only & wild clutch at the best of 'em. And ad
miring, them 1 thought; "This is 'great' stuff the stuff that the
great are made of. Air you faces of great men, severe faces, dream
ing faces, puszllng faces, and splendid ones that we grow familiar
with in the things that tell about you yoa were just this once; you
had freckles on your nose, and your folks ate In the kitchen, and
you played a 'mouth-organ and wore a hard canvas cap with the let
ters of somebody's soap in sunset colors around your head. You
were Just this a funny and dead and poor little kid." And I sur
veyed this lovable and varied little band; little patched one with
your soap cap; debonair boy with the overalls and "Beanie" and the
one tooth "among the missing;" cotton-topped chubby with the lit
tle Dutch coat and the bare, curled toes and the sun in your eyes;
jockey-capped "feller" with the pink waiBt and the blue overalls
scrubbed gray at the busy knees; puffing chappie with the "ole"
white hat and the mahogany-colored legs; round baby with the socks
of great wealth and whose toes were shiny only because they were
new; and lanky kid with a polka-dot tie that you stiff la your pocket
the minute you get out of slgbt of home (I know from when I was
a little glrj), with the freckles and the eyes as bright as bits of glass
in the sun.. And I thought. "Here sit the great, sure enonghl Tou
with the m inning tooth will dream the poetry that will chant the spirit
of your country aloud and Dutch-Jacket will smile with the same
ghost of a squint down from the steps of the White House some day. .
And lots of folks will never believe that he ever curled his toes In
the dust of a eountry lane and wore a safetypln on his breast! Under
the little print shirt and behind the peaked and battered cap of the
humblest little trudger you pass, is the heart and the brain perhaps
of a figure that will loom against the sky, throwing the shadow across
a continent of listening people." NELL BRINKLEY. -

"Of course he shall." the father as
sented sbsnnt-mlndedly, his eyes on ths
latest political scandal. Then, glancing
at the clock, he noticed .that it was time
he was taking the train Into town, and
hurried off. . ' -1
As it was Saturday, the master of the
house returned from town early In tha
afternoon. Thcrs was an Important busi
ness matter he wished to talk over with
his wife. The dsy was perfect. Why
not go for a driver
He suggested this after he had given
his life-partner the usuat affectionate
greeting. "There Is a scheme our firm
has on hand, and I want to tell you about
It," he aald. "Let's take the buggy and
go off Slone for an hour or two."
"I'd love to," ahe rejoined.
'A halt hour later- the small boy of
tha family,' from his playhouse at the
end of the garden, saw ths horse and
buggy standing at the front door. He
ran up tha long walk as fast as he
oould, but. In spite of his haste, his
father was just helping his mother Into
the carriage ss tha child reached them,
his face dirty and streaming with
"I'm going, too," ha panted.
"Oh, no,' dear," his mother said. "Not
this time. . Tou are to stay at horns with
auntie. See, sho is there on tha veranda
waiting for you now."
"But, mother," the child began, "you
know you and father"
The horse took a restless step forward
and tha owner sprang into the buggy be
side bis wife and gathered up the reins.
"Whoa, there!" he ordered Impatiently.
"Opod-bye, son, be a good boy."
The father looked severe. "Tom,
didn't you unt hear your mother say
that you wars to stay at home with
auntie? When shs says a thing she
means it. So-long!"
The mother kissed her hand to him
and the pair ware off, whirling k away
down the drlvs without a backward
glance at the forlorn, small figure left
Tha child stood looking aftsr them
so earnealy that he was not awars that
his aunt had come down tha veranda
steps to his side. ... . ... , ;
"Well!" -shs heard him exclaim softly,
"there goes two of ths dsrndest liars

When this story was told to me I could
not Is ugh quite as heartily as did the
other hearers. Back of the Incident wss
what It stood for. There was a promise
which hsd been mads to blunt the sharp

promise that had been. Indorsed by the
child's highest court of appeals his

And when ths carriage appeared, be
was surs thst ths promise was to be
