William H. Taft of Cincinnati, O , was chosen as the republican candidate for president by the republican convention at Chicago last Thursday afternoon on the first ballot, receiving 702 ballots out of a total of 980, with one delegate absent. A great demonstration marked the presentation of his name, and the nomination was made unanimous. The others nominated and the number of ballots cast were: Senator Philander C Knox of Pennsylvania, 68; Governor Charles E. Hughes of New York, 67; Speaker Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois, 08; Vice President Charles W. Fairbanks of Indiana, 40; Senator Robert M. LaFollette of Wisconsin, 25; Senator Joseph B. Foraker of Ohio, 16. Three votes were cast for President Roosevelt from the Pennsylvania delegation, although he was not mentioned for nomination. Mr Taft was nominated by Representative Theodore E. Burton of Cleveland, and the nomination was seconded by George A. Knight of California. The motion to make the nomination unanimous was made by Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania. Before the convention assembled Friday morning, it was practically certain that the vice-presidency would go to James S. Sherman of Utica, N. Y. A large number of states had indorsed bis candidacy in caucus and it spread like wildfire. Governor Curtis Guild of Massachusetts, Former Governor Franklin Murphy of New Jersey and Mr Sherman were the only candidates for the vice-presidency formally placed in nomination. There were scattering votes, however, for Vice-President Fairbanks and Governor Sheldon of Nebraska from two of the state delegations. Mr Sherman's victory was an overwhelming one, 816 votes being the total before his nomination was made unanimous.- One feature of the great convention was the remarkable demonstration of applause evoked by the mention of President Roosevelt's name in a highly complimentary way by the permanent chairman, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts. This demonstration lasted forty-sis minutes and is said to have broken the time record for such things in American politics. The cue for the enthusiastic outbreak was Senator Lodge's remark during his opening address as chairman when he said, "The president is the best abased and the most popular man in the United States today." Happiness. By TEMPLE BAILEY Copyrighted, 1908, by Associated Literary Press. V.VV" • -S' Conn. Margaret, with her eyes on the .heavy sky that hung over the stubbly fields, sang softly: "Falling leaf and fading tree, Lines of white on a sullen sea." She stopped and turned to Meredith with an impulsive gesture. "This is the end," she said. His somber eyes met hers. "I can't see it;" he stormed. "We love each other. Why shouldn't we be happy?" "Ah, but there is the other girl!" she reminded him. "Yes, the other girl," he said, and for a long time after that they were silent. In front of them stretched the long brown road. The goldenrod flamed on both sides of it now, but when these two had first met there had been sweet-brier arid other delicate flowers of the early summer. Margaret had worn a bunch of wild pink roses that first morning when she had come to the big gate to get her mall, and to Meredith, there on the Bame errand, she had seemed as fresh and perfect as the flowers she wore. Since then they had waited every morning on the old rustic bench under the oaks, and life in that time had taken on new meaning. "Think of it," Margaret said at last— 'tomorrow the little postman will come here and there will be no one to see him and nothing will be changed, but you and I will be far away—you in the west-and-1 In the east." After another silence he Asked., 'What are you going to do with your life?" "I?" she hesitated. "Oh, go in for something, I suppose—settlement work or society or literature. Perhaps I'll write a novel." "And you think that any' of those things will make you happy?" She stretched out her hands to him. "Ah, happiness"— she began, and her voice broke. "Come with me," he whispered as he bent over her. "It must be you and for all the future, Margaret." She drew away from him. "No, no," she told him; "I shall get along. A woman can find so many Interests In these days, and in using my brain I Bhall forget that I have a heart. And you—you will marry the other girl, nnfl this summer, this little time that we have had together, will seem to you like a dream or a strain of music that -heard once you can never forget." TTIH eyes followed her as she rose and walked to the gate. She wore a loose tan coat and tan shoes, and her brown hair was waved and puffed Into a shining coiffure. "Oh, you beauty," be whispered, "you beauty 1" "Hushl" she warned, and they Heard the treat of a horse's hoofs. The mall wagon of the rural delivery carrier was protected from sun and rain by a white umbrella, under lwhlcii the little man sat like^.ftog oiM&r a tpadatool. - T* ifYou all goin' tomorrow?" he asked as Meredith gave him directions for forwarding the mail. Then he gave a chuckling laugh. "I reckon if you all come next summer your mail will come to the same name." Margaret had a half dozen letters and a paper. Meredith's mall was all business matter except one square wjiite envelope addressed in delicate feminine script. "Look here," the little postman said to Margaret facetiously as he handed the letter to Meredith; "I'd be jealous of that letter if I were you. He gets one every day." A wave of scarlet swept over the girl's face. "Jealous!" she stammered. "Oh, no!" But when the little man had gone she broke down and sobbed. "I am jealous," she told Meredith. "I am dreadfully, dreadfully jealous." "And yet you won't marry me." "No." "You want me to marry a woman I don't care for, to whom I am engaged simply because I had known her all my life and had drifted Into it, and you want to make me miserable and to make her miserable just because you are afraid It will be dishonorable for me to go back on my word?" "But she loves you, and she Isn't strong." > _ His face softened. "No; she isn't strong, and she has a sweet nature. If I had never met you I should have jogged along with her and there would have been no heights of happiness. I should have dwelt always in the p'.aln. He stopped abruptly. "But what is the use of thinking about that? It's our last day together, Margaret. Let us forget everything but that we are together." "Then we'll ride," she said. "I'll go back to the house and get my habit, and we will go over the hills and far away." He stuffed his letters Into his pocket.' "You haven't read—hers," Margaret reminded him. "Another time," he said briefly, and they went to get ready. Their ride that day was a thing to live in a man's memory. The hillsides were glowing in russet and-orange and green. The lake as they passed it was as blue as a sapphire, and the blackbirds were flocking in the golden fields. They talked little, but they lived intensely in tnose few H5urs. Now" and then she ventured a little plan for his future or for hers. But he would stop her always, and then he would urge their horses on and on until they went like the wind. At last twilight came, and they stopped at a wayside inn for supper. They ate little. , r "I can't," Margaret whispered when he insisted. '"I am thinking of tomorrow." When the waiter came with their bill Meredith, reaching for his pocketbook, brought out with it the unopened letter of the morning. As it lay on the table Margaret studied the postmark. "How does it happen," she asked suddenly, "that she Is in New York? I thought you were to meet her In Denver." _ ^ \^ He caught the letter out of heir "hand. "New York?" he repeated and tore it open. As he read his. face changed, whitened and was suddenly illumined; "Margaret," he said, • with a quick Intake of breath, "Margaretl" 'What Is it 2" g&e asked, startled, r'r]- '^1: "Helen is married—to some one she met this summer." Across the table they stared at each other, stunned by this sudden fulfillment of their hearts' desire.; Meredith, catching curious eyes upon them, rose. "Come," he said abruptly; "we must go." •The stars were out as they mounted their horses, and the road lay_like a silver path before them. In the darkness Meredith leaned over and drew to him the lady of his heart. "Dear," he whispered tensely, "it is the road to happiness." A Considerate Bride. "The most considerate girl I ever knew got married yesterday," said the man. "She showed her thoughtfulness in a most unusual way. The day before the wedding she called the attention of the rest of the family to a row of old shoes standing in a downstairs closet ' 1 " 'I want you to throw these aftec the carriage,' she said. 'They are all mates. I collected them to throw; away. I learned some time ago that certain poor souls who have hard work to get clothes of any description keep a lookout for big weddings. They hang around the house at going away, time and pick up the good luck shoes. Maybe they get a fit, and maybe they don't. Anyway, I've done all I could to accommodate them. " 'Here are six pairs of decent shoes to be fired after me. If somebody doesn't get fitted in that collection It isn't my fault.' "—New York Times. What Is Grain-0 ?
