Uow it ramed, that blek winter

sheets of spray from the pavements
and swelling the gutters i:i minia

iug mist the shop-windows flared
dimly and the yellovc stars of the
street-lamps shons like beacon
lights far out at sen. There were
not many pedestrians on Droadway
that night, save those compelled hy

But as she made the effort her

from her lips.
"No," said she, 'T can't walk. Oh,

January 10, 1S93.
Mnch as I Jove Seantor Vance
and cherish State pride I did not at
rend the. Jackson bauquet last night
and hear the Senator's very humor
ous speech. He is thus reported la
a city paper :
Senator Vance, of North Carolina,
in answering to the toast, "Andrew
Jackson, a citizen and an Ameri
can," made one of the witty speech-
I es for which he is famous. He eaid
that Andrew Jackson was either
born in Unieu county, N. C. or so
c'.jse to it that ne derived from . it
all the virtues for which the section
is famous. Alter being born there
he removed to Tennessee, "ihe
daughten of North Carolina," lor
the three Presidents Teuuessee has
civen to the country Andrew Jack
son, Jatm-s K. Polk and Andrew
Jackson were bora iu North Car 01
"Whether thn art of creating
Presidents ia denied to North Caro
lina 01 not," said Mr. Vance, "there
is no doui't it is a happy breeding:
place for persons who move away
anJ aspire to greatness, and I may
be excused from saying that had I
gone to some other State like Tenn.
essee I would have overshawed the
other citizens that there is no tel
ling what I might have become."
Continuing he said there was two
kinds of greatness greatness that
is written in books and sang iu his
tory and the greatness that is kept
alive by tradition in the hearts of
the people. Measured by tho latter
Andrew Jackson will be found to be
one of tlii greatest, if not the great
est, Americau who has ever lived.
There was greatness of intellect
and greatness, of moral qualities.
Will and will power went far to
make up moral greatness", and in
the possession of these character,
istics no one could be mentioned in
the same breath with Jackson.
While he did not have the keen
intellectual eyesight of Calhcou or
Webster, when he did pee he acted
like n, thunder bolt, and did what
was needed while they were consid
ering ways and means.
Senator Vance modestly claimed
j relationship with Jackson, and
spoke of the coming administration
in glowing terms, Regarding the
oOices to be disturbed, he exclaim
ed : "It the horse has faithfully pul
led the plow, for God's sake let him
have the. fodder.1'
