PAGE SIX TEE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OREGON. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 1919. THE LIGHT N THE CLEARING" A TALE OF THE NORTH COUNTRY IN THE TIME OF SILAS WRIGHT IRVING BAOTELLEFL , Aunwtor (BEN HOIDEN. tfM AND l DARREL Of THE BLESSED ISLES. KEEPINO Uf VITH UZZIE. ETC ETC tTie" DuinrDiraonagunr t maw nuic Senator Wright strongly favored the plan but feared that the South would defeat him In convention, It being well known that Van Buren was opposed to the annexation of Texas. However, lie advised his friend to make a fight for the nomination and this the latter resolved to do. Thenceforward until middle May I gave my time largely to the Inditing of letters for the senator in Vun Buren's behalf. The time appointed for the conven tion In Baltimore drew near. One day I Took the Stage to Baltimore Next Day, (tie senator received an Intimation that lie wouhl he put in nomination If Van Puren failed, Immediately ho wroto to Judge Pino of Ogdonsburg, chair man of the delegation from the north ern district of New York, forbidding such use of his name on the ground l.hat his acquiescence would Involve dis loyalty to his fiieud the ex-prosldeut He gave me leave to go to the con vention on my way home to meet Sally, I had confided to Mrs. Wright the de tails of niy llttlo love affair I had to and she had shown n tender, sympa . thetlc Interest In t!ie story. TIip senntor had said to me one dny, with n gentle smile: "Hart, you have business In Cunton, t believe, with which trilling matters like the choice of a presldeut and the Mexican question cannot be permitted to Interfere. You must tnko time to spend n day or two at tho -convention In Baltimore on your way. . . . Be ltort to our friend Cine, who will look lifter jour comfort there. The experi ence ought to he useful to a young man v. ho, I hope, will have work to do in future convent Ions," I took the stage to Baltimore next day the twenty-sixth of May. The convention thrilled me tho flags, the great crowd, the bands, the songs, tho speeches, the cheering I see nod hear It nil In my talk. The uproar lasted for twenty minutes when Van Buren's .. name wos put In nomination. Then the undercurrent 1 The South was ngainst him as Wright had fore ? Seen, The deep current of Its power ; lind undermined certain of the north ' fin and western delegations. Osten sibly for Van Bii.vn nnd stubbornly casting their ballots for him, they had . voted for the two-thirds rule, which bad accomplished his defeat before the balloting begnu. It continued for two days without a choice. The enemy Stood firm. After adjournment that eenlng many of the Van Buren ilele KC.tea were summoned to n conference. 1 attended It with Judge Fine. The ex -president bad withdrawn and ivnuesled his friends In tho conven tion to vote for Silas Wright.

When order wus at last re stored he began: "Gcntbnien, as a friend of the learned senator and as a resident of the county which Is the proud pos sessor of bis homo, your enthusiasm has n welcome sound to me ; but I hap pen to know that Senator Wright will not allow his nuiiie to go before the convention." Ho read the letter of which I knew. Mr. Benjamin F. Butler then said: "When that letter was written Sena tor Wright was not aware that Mr. Vmi Buren's nomination could not be liceonp!it.hed, nor was he aware that Ms own nomination would be the al liost wnntilinous wish of this conven tion. I have talked with the loading lii'losntes from Missouri and Virginia ( - Tlmv njr tji'it he onn he nnnil ......

No, It Is not so. It cannot be so. We must dispatch a messenger to him by borse at once who shall take to him from his friend Judge Fine a frank statement of the imperious de mand of this convention and a request that he telegraph a withdrawal of bis letter In the morning." The suggestion was unanimously ap proved and within an hour, mounted or. one of the best horses In Maryland so his groom Informed me I was on my way to Washington with the mes sage of Judge Flue In my pocket. Yes, I had two days to spare on my sched ule of travel and reckoned that, by re turning to Baltimore next day I should reuch Cunton in good time. It was the kind of thing that only a lithe, supple, strong-hearted bid such as I was In the days of my youth, could relish speeding over a dark road by the light of the stars nnd a half-moon, with a horse that loved to kick up n wind. My brain was In a fever, for the notion had come to me that I was making history. J The lure of fame and high place hur ried nie on. Wtth the senator In the presidential chair I should bo well started in the highway of great Suc cess. Then Mr. r. H. Dmikelberg mlcht' er than the legacy of i think nie better than the legacy Benjamin Grlnishaw. A relay awaited me twenty-three miles down the road. Well, I reached Washington very sore, but otherwise In good form, soon after daybreak. I was trembling with excitement when I put my horse In the stable and rang the bell at our door. It seemed to me that I was crossing the divide between big and little tiling A few steps more and I should be look-' Ing down Into the great valley of the future. Yet, now that I was there, I began to lose confidence. The butler opened tho door. Tea, -thr senator, was up and had Just returned from a walk and was In his study. I found him there. .- . "Well, Bart, how does this happen?" he nsked. "It's Important business," I said, as I presented the letter. Something In his look nnd manner as he calmly adjusted his glasses and Hn.l .1. n 1A., T...l r I . , the blood to my face. It seemed to ' puncture my balloon, so to speak, and I I wns falling toward the earth nnd so swlftlv niv bond awnm. Ifa ii,i I letter on his desk and.;.t..o;t ooki g! if he were asking a dollar. neH,. l up and as coolly as for (he change of a dollar, queried "Well, Burt, what do you think wo had better do about it?" "I I wns hoping you you would take It," I stammered. "That's because (he excitement of the convention Is on you," he an swered. "Let us look nt the compass. They have refused to nominate Mr. Van Buren because he Is opposed to the annexation of Texas. On that sub ject the will of the convention Is now clear. It Is possible that they would nominate nie. We don't know about that, we never shall know. If they did, and I accepted, what would be ex pected of me Is also clear, ..They would expect mo to nbnndsn my prin ciples and that course of conduct which I conceive to be best for the country. Therefore I should have to accept It under false pretenses and take their yoke upon me. Would you think the needle pointed that way?" "No," I answered. Immediately he turned to bis desk and wrote the telegram which fixed his place In history. It said no. Into the lives of few men has such a moment fallen, I looked nt him with a feeling of awe. What sublime calm ness nnd serenity was In his face 1 As If It were a mere detull In the work of the day, and without a moment's fal tering, he liud declined a crown, for ho would surely have been nominated nnd elected. lie rote nnd stood looking out of tho open window. Always I think of lib andlng there with the morning sun,.,it falling upon tils face and shoulders, Ho had observed my emotion and I think It had touched him a little. There was a moment of silence. A curious Illusion came to me then, for It seemed as If I beard the sound of distant music. Looking thoughtfully out of the window he nsked: "Bnrt, do you know when cur first fathers turned out of the trnll of the beast and found the long road of hu manity? I think It was when they dis covered the compass In their hearts." So now nt last we have come to that high and lonely place, where we may look back upon the toilsome, adven turous way we have traveled with the aid of tho candle ar.d the compass. Now let us stop a moment to rest aud to think. How sweet the air is herel The night Is falling. I see the stars In the sky. lust below ' niejs. the valley of Eter- iou Wul UUucloulliu GJ I bave sought only to do Justice to my friend and to give my country a name; long neglected, but equal In glory to those of Washington and Lincoln. Come, let us take one last look to gether down the road we have trav eled, now dim In the 'evening shad ows. Scattered along It are the little houses of the poor of which I have written. See the lights In the win dowsthe lights that are shining into the souls of the young the eager, open, expectant, welcoming souls of the young and the light carries many things, but best of all a respect for the old, unchanging way of the compass. After all that Is the end and aim of the whole matter believe me. My life has lengthened Into these days when most of our tasks are ac complished by machinery. We try to make men by the thousand, In vast educational machines, nnd no longer by the one ns of old. It was the lov ing, forgiving, forbearing, patient. ceaseless toll of mother and father on the tender soul of childhood which quickened that Inextinguishable sense of responsibility to God and man In these people whom I now leave to the Judgment of my countrymen. I have lived to see the ancient plan of kingcraft, for self-protection, com ing back Into the world. It demands that the will nud conscience of every Individual shall be regulated and con trolled Dy some conceited prince, backed by tin nrmy. It cannot fall, I foresee, to accomplish such devasta tion In the human spirit as shall Im peril the dourest possession of man. If ono Is to follow the compass he can have but one king his God. - I nm near the end. I rode back to Baltimore that forenoon. They had nominated Mr. Polk of Tennesse for. president aud Silas Wright for vice ' president, tho latter by acclamation. Ij knew that Wright would decline the: honor, as he did. I hurried northward to keep my ap pointment with Bnllly. The "boats wero slowed by fog. At Albany I was a day behind my schedule. I should 'have only an hour's leeway If the boats on 11,3 lakes ulul tlle s,aKo from IlnttsourS were on time. I feared to uusi mem. oo i caugnt rne west- bound train nnd reached Utlca three I hours lnte. There. I bought a good ! horse nud his saddle nnd bridle and I hurried up the north road. When he wns near spent I traded him for a well-' Knit Morgnirmnre up in the little vll- iii;e oi oanuy urecii. un, l Knew a good horse ns well ns the next man and a better one than she I never , "77 , J,' I" ,u B,ul; die at six in the afternoon and stopped for feed nnd an hour's rest at nine and ' rode on through the night. I readied the hamlet of Ilichville soon nfter day break nnd put out for a rest of two hours. I could take it easy then. At seven o'clock the mare and I started again, well fed nnd eager to go on. It was a summer morning that short ens the road even that of the young lover. Its air was sweet with the breath of the meadows. Tho daisies and the clover nnd the cornflowers I""1 the M roses Beemed t0 be wflv" ng a w,elcome t0 nle' and the tho" l;?,ssI"ipe y -,nBn,ent of y native nllls wel"e ,n blossom. A Cloud of - - swept across the blue deep " M,Vfle ",y hea ' Cll0,r of lhc fl,'1('9 san t0 me-bobolinks, song- sparrows, meauowlarks, bluebirds, warblers, wrens, nnd far away in the edge of n spruce thicket I heard the fiuto of the white-thronted sparrow. I bat lied nt n brook In the woods nnd put on n clean silk shirt and tlo out of my saddlebags. I rode slowly then to the edge of the village of Can ton and turned nt tho bridge and took the river road, although I hnd time to spare. How my heart was beating ns I nenred the familiar scene I Tho river slowed Its pace there, like a dis cerning traveler, to enjoy the beauty if Its shores. Smooth and silent wns tho water and In It were the blue of .he sky and the feathery shadow-spires )f cedar and tamarack and the rellect d blossoms of Iris and meadow rue. It was a lovely scone. There was the pine, but where wns ny lady? I dismounted nnd tied my mure and looked nt my watch. It lacked twenty minutes to eleven. Sho would come I hud no doubt of It. I wished my hands and face and neck In the cool water. Suddenly I hcafd a voice I knew singing: "Barney Leave the Girls Alone." 1 turned and saw your mother, my son. (These last lines were dictated to hla son.) She was In the stern of a birch canoe, all dressed In white with roses In her hair. I raised my hat and she threw ft kiss ntino. Old Knte sat In the bow waving her handkerchief. They stopped nnd Sully nsked III a tone of playful seriousness : "Young hum, why have you come lure?" "To get you," I answered. "What do you want of me?" She was looking at her face In the water. "I want to marry you," I answered bravely. 'Then you may helpm. 9-ere If you please. I anc-.u'my best, white slippers and you are to be very care ful." Beautiful ! She was the spirit of the Deld3 of June then and always. I helped her ashore and held her in my arms and, you know, the lips have a way of sneaking then In the old, con vincing, final argument of love. They left no doubt In our hearts, my son. "When do you wish to marry nier" she whispered. "As soon as possible, but my pay la only sixty dollars a month now." "We shall make it do," she an swered., "My mother and fnthernnd naT'sTTence. haste now. fllS " ,.,,, A "Then You May Help Me Ashore, If You Please." your ffunfr&mr rscrefnr rnrc5T and the minister and a number of our friends are coming In a fleet of boats." "We ore prepared either for a picnic or a wedding,''- was the whisper of Kate. "Let's make It both," I proposed to Sally. "Surely there couldn't be a better place than here under the big pine it's so smooth and soft and shady," said she. Nor could there be a better day or better company," I urged, for I was not sure that she would ngree. The boats came along. Sally and I waved -a welcome from the bank nnd she merrily proclaimed : "It's to bo a wedding.'! Then a cheer from the boats, In which I Joined. I shall never forget how, when the 'company had landed nnd the creetinss were over, Uncle Penbody approached your mother and said : "Say, Sally,. I'm goln' to plant a kiss on both o' them red cheeks o'-yours, nn' do It deliberate, too." He did It and so did Aunt Deel and old Knte, nnd I think that, next to your mother and me, they were the happiest people at the wedding, There Is a lonely grave up in the hills that of the stranger who died long ago on Rattleroad. One day I found oW K(ite slttl bfeslde ,t cfn ,nt, fH , n stone lately erected there was the name, Enoch Rone. " "It Is very sorrowful," ' she Whis pered, "He was trying to find me when he died." We walked on In silence while I re called the circumstances. How strange that those tales of blood nnd lawless daring which Rate hnd given to Amos Grimshaw had led to the slaying of her own son! Yet, so it happened, nnd the old wives will tell you tire story up there In the hills. The play ends Just ns the night Is falling with Knte nnd me entering the little home, so familiar now, where she -ev w Dee! and Uncle Pea moota -nn. elcome with Aunt Penbody. The latter meets us nt the door and Is saying in a :hcerf ul voice : "Come In to supper, you rovers. How solemn ye look I Sny, If you ex pect Sally and me to do all the Inughln' iere you're mistaken. There's n lot of :t to be done right now, nn' It's time rou Jined In. We nln't done nothin' jut laugh since we got up, an' we're n need o' help. What's tho matter, Sate? Look up at the light In God's vinder. How bright It shines tonight f Ahen I feel bad I always look nt the ilars," (THE END.)

Stay off tho ibinip ground, avoid exposure, keep ifeet dry, cat less meat, unnlt lots of water anil above nil take a s;o.mful of salts occasionally to keep down uric acid. Rheumatism is caused by poisonous toxin, called uric acid, which is gene rated in tin bowels and absorbed into the blood. It is tho function of rae kidneys t filter this acid from the blood and cast it out in the urine. The pores of the skin are also a means of freeing th: bleed of this impurity. In damp and chilly, cold wea'lier the skin pores are closed, thus forcing the kid ' ncys Jo do double work, they become weak and slug;ish and fail to eliminate this uric acid wliich keeps accumulating and circuiting through the system, eventually settling iu the joints and raiis.'les causing stiffness soreness aud pain c.illed rheumatism. At the first twinge ef rheumatism get from any pharmacy about, four ounces of .lad Walts; put a tablespoon ful in a glass of water and drink before breakfast each morning for a week.

Mason (United Press Staff Correspondent) New York, Jan. 22. American la bor influences are at work attempting to discourage political agitation as a class measure by European labor lead ers and to impress upon Europe's work ingmen that the way to earn more money is to produce more goods. This is a startling doctrine for Eu rope, where leisure is highly prized and speed in production is strictly lim ited by trades unions "Pep" is a new word to Europeans, which Amer ica is now trying to introduce to them. Europe's agitators have long been running to the national legislatures for increases in the standard of living. The European labor leaders who want- the state to act for them in attaining greater economic comfort are planning to hold a congress in Switzerland under socialistic auspices- The Americans have declined to attend this conven tion. The Swiss meeting, therefore, can not have a wide international influence and will not exert much pressure on tho deliberations of the peace congress.
