Before we lett Georgetown, K
this city, our mother placed in our
hand a silver dollar, and as she did
so, remarked, "I want to lie the first
tp subscribe for your paper, and I
want to establish the precedent which
I hope you will follow,— to alwiys
collect in advance." God bless that
dear woman, may she live to read the
Advocate for many years, and yet
long a» we have anything to do
with the publication of it we will
see to it that the shall have the
pleasure of perusing its column**
weekly. Now who will follow the
example she has set ?
Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Hughes were
blessed a few days ago by the ad
t of a bright eyed baby boy who
de his appearance to bless th
home. The proud father is mucl
elated over the advent and thinks he
can see a great Democratic states-
man in the new born son, while the
mother is as equally confident that
her son will grow up to be a great
Republican leader. We have not seen
the new arrival, but are inclined to
take the side of the mother.
Last Monday evening at 6:40
o'clock death invaded the apart-
ments of Senator Marcus A.
Hanna in the Arlington hotel in
Washington City and called from
earth the spirit of him who was
recognized by all to be the leader
of the National Republican party.
At the time of his death Sena-
tor Hanna was serving his unex-
pired term as senator from Ohio,
and only. al out three weeks ago
he was re-elected for the suc-
ceeding term of six years by the
largest majority that any man in
Ohio ever received.

Marcus A. Hanna was born in
Lisbon, O., Sept. 24, 1887, and
when five years of age removed
with his father's family to Cleve-
land, where he spent the remain-
der of his life, except when in
Washington serving as a member
of the United States Senate.
While he was always un ardent
Republican and u strong purty
worker he never attempted to
deliver a public address until in
1897, when an effort was made by
the Democrats to defeat him "
his seat in the senate.
In all his dealings Mr. Hanna
was regarded by all to be per- 1
fectly honest, and by good man-
agement he had managed to ac-
cumulate a snug fortune.
The gold plank in the repub-
lican platform of 189tt was cred-

truth was that Mr. McKinley

THE GIRL AND

I There are few who would gainsay
the proposition that a bright young
girl in her teens is the most attrac-
tive object in the whole realm of
nature. With the flush ot hope on
her cheek, the gleam of intelligence
in her eye, her springy, elastic step,
her ringing, joyous laughter, she
gpes forth to conquer. And it to
these qualities is added the touch of
ealtare that come from contact with
educated people, the unmistakable
touch of gentility and modesty too,
it will be a wonder ; f society does
not rench on its hands for her, ere
she is ready to meet its exacting de-

high relations in life, said he would

THE OTHER MAN
[CopjrrHht. IMS. br C. B. l^wta.J
One dark night, while Grant's lines
force captured a Confederate outpost.
The name of the Confederate was
Wakefield, while that of the Federal
wm Thomas. The former belonged to
a Louisiana regiment. When placed
side by side they seemed to be twin
brothers. Each was about twenty-two
yea*s old: each was about five feet fivr
Inches high; each weighed 140 pounds.
Their eyes and hair were of the same
color, and even tbelr voices were the
same except that the southerner had a
little more drawl. The pair were as
much astonished as the officers and
surgeons who were called to look them
You will not be surprised that advan-
tage was taken of this curious coinci-
dent to send Thomas Into the Confeder-
ate lines. As a preparatory step be
was given a week In which to pump
Wakefield. The prisoner did not know
the object and, being of a garrulous
disposition, he was ready to talk on
any subject. Thomas got from him his
family history complete, then the name
of the town from which the man ball-
ed, with incidents of people and streets:
then the na'ues of his officers and com-
rades, with incidents ot' campaigning.
The Federal had been an actor before
enlisting and had cultivated a wonder-
ful memory. When he bad stored up n
thousand different things In his mind
he bought the uniform worn by the
Confederate and was ready to set out
on bis mission.
One night Thomas was taken down
to the front and made a bolt for It.
In other words, it was made to appear
that one of tbe Confederate prisoners
was making a dash for liberty, nnd the
picket opened a sharp fire but took
aire not to aim nt the
On reaching the Confederate lines
Thomas was sent to the headquarters
of General Mahone. The
ed a bit suspicious, and Thomas, play-
ing ths part of Wakefield, asked that
his captain be sent for. It was a cou-
ple of hours before the officer arrived,
nnd the general nt once said to him:
"Captain, this man who has come
Into our lines tonight claims to be a
member of your company. Is be or Is
"He certainly Is. sir," was the prompt
"What's his nsme?"
"John Wakefield, sir."
That Bettled it.
After three or four days and under
pretense of visiting s cousin In a Vir-
ginia regiment Thomas covered the
front end bad a look at guns and forti-
fications. When he returned to camp,
calculating to take the first opportunity
to escape, be was at once put under
arrest. It appeured that Wakefield
and some of his comrades bad raided
a store of a lot of eatables, and the
proprietor had ascertained their
and now demanded their punishment.
When the merchant and Thomas
were brought face to face the latter
declared that Thomas was not the man
he represented himself to be. Why he
should have made such a declaration
Is a pussle. but he seemed to he guided
by intuition. He was ridiculed and
laughed at. but he stuck to his assertion
and even denounced Thomas to Gener-
al Mahone. As stated after the war.
the geueral had felt doubts of Thomas
from the first, which may again be set
down to the sense of intuition.
The name of the merchant who hud
been despoiled was Saunders, and he
was of an implacable nature. Being
put on his mettle by the sneers and
ridicule, he determined to prove his
case at all costs. As the accuser he
hud the general ask hundreds of jues-
tlons. He knew the town and the peo-
ple from which Thomas as Wakefield
claimed to hall and in the course of the
day bad trapped blm a dozen time*
over. As an offset all the officers anil
privates of the company asserted that
Thomas was Wakefield and that there
was no room to doubt. He went at It
and related every Incident of camp life
tor a year past and told of things which
It seemed Impossible for a stranger to
General Maboue was clearly puszied
over the case and took two days to
think It over. At the end of that time
Thomas was escorted back to find n
soldier In Federal uniform In tbe gener-
al's tent, and there were also two civil-
ians in waiting. It waa a little surprise
for tbe spy. Tbe man In Federal uni-
form claused to have known Thomas
as a Federal soldier under the name of
Brown, and the two civilians claimed
that he had never been
Thomas realised that tbe pinch had
come, and be braced himself to make a
fight for bis life. General Mahone
treated him In the fairest man
acting as his own counsel, he went at it
and soon had the supposed Federal sol-
dier all twisted up and out of the run-
ning. Then he tackled the civilians, and
they proved to be as eusy game. In-
stead of being cornered up he cornered
his accusers, and 't was so well done
thst bkv wss complimented by tbe gen-
eral. When the case hud been conclud-
ed. Mahone leaned back and looked at
the prisoner for a long minute sua then
