At a namUiM

point of leaping into the crowd.
Even Irt the dim light Jackson'e
keen eyes could make out the man
responsible for the remark about
Rachel, and he drove his way to
ward him. For a minute the crowd.
astonished by the General's temer
ity, remained lmmooiie; men mere
wm a united movement to hem him
in. With sticks and rifle butts rais
ed in air, the hecklers seemed -ready
to etop at nothing.
John Randolph and Senator
Eaton were the first out of the
Inn in Jackson's defense. Forging
their way through the mob with an
invincible determination, they flay
ed about on all sides. Reinforce
ments from the tavern came to
Join them, but it was the reserved
Randolph and the immaculate
Eaton (neither of whom one could
associate with open battle) who
literally lorcea the raooie to Dena
to their will.
Peggy's thoughts, as she stared
fearfully through the seething
forme, went back to that other
occasion, five years before, when
the poison of mob fury had turned
Itself loose in the courtyard of the
Franklin Inn. She thought of Bow,
her Joyous warrior, leaping from an
unner window: she Imagined how
he would have plunged into the
crowd now, an menaceaoie smiie
upon his face .
The men who had reached Jack
son's side formed a little cordon
bout him, affording temporary
Srotectlon. But they were outnura
ered, nor could they match the
tactics of the crowd, Two clutching
at him, honey, like they have at
me. You'll help him. won't you.
bo Doing, ner arms ciaspea aoout
Rachel's . walet, Peggy promised
that she would.
Rachel's morbid vronheey was
fulfilled. She lived only a short time
after the evening of the riot, and
when her husband placed her in her
grave he burled his heart there also.
une weeK alter ner aeatn, witni
the first snowflakes of the season
flying through the air, he drove'
out with Peggy to Rachel's grave, i
As he bowed his head there he
made no pretense of biding his
"It's no use," he muttered, half
to himself. "I ain't got the spirit to
face it without you."
. Peggy, Rachel's farewell words
ringing in her ears, slipped her
arm through his.
"Uncle Andy," she said, "you're
the most Important President this
country's ever had. You've got to
face everything and you're going to."
Emily Donelson basked in the
glory of her position aa Presiden
tial niece. The only fly In the oint
ment was the presence of Peggy,
whose popularity and good looks
she jealously resented. One day she
sought a private conference with
Jackson and attempted to force the
"As your official First Lady," she
said, "it's my duty to warn you,
Uncle Andrew, that you cannot
force such a person down the
throats of Washington society."
"Who said anything about for
cin'," Jackson replied. "Peg's got
where she is so far on her own
danged prettiness and horse sense."
"She's not recognized by society,"
Emily responded heatedly. "Besides,
all Washington is talking "
Peggy, who had accidentally in
truded at that moment, needed only
a glance to determine the drift of
"Everywhere I go I seem to find
people talking about me," she
"I suppose you know," said Emily
fiercely to Jackson "that Mr. Cal
houn says this woman will soon be
the real President!" ;
"In my humble opinion," returned j
Jackson, a slow grin coming over '
hla face, "she'd make a dang sight
better President than John C.

social status did not keep her away

Randolph was driven aside, clubbed

the press of figures about him.
There was a pistol shot from the
rim of the fighting throng, a sharp
cream, then ominous silence. In an
other moment there would be an
answering 'shot, and mass murder
would be turned loose.

from his injury and the new Secre

Sight of the two arriving together
sent Mrs. BeaU and her cohorts into
a veritable spasm of sarcasm.

When the dance muslo started

Peggy's enemies kept up aa under

focused itself approvingly on the

Eaton's partner, v
When the couple walked across

glanced up at her companion. '

asked. 3 ,; "',v

"What do you recommend to im

engaging laugh. "
"That . you give up being a
widow," returned Eaton I without
hesitation. He pressed her arm and
his eyes told an expressive story.
Peggy, to whom this declaration
came aa an abrupt surprise, did not '
know what to reply. The orchestra

If one's finger can be dipped in and

Peanut Bags For Sale
These bags are of the same quality that
proved so satisfactory to the many farmers
who used them last year. They are not per
fect, but we consider them better and more
uniform in size than most of the so-called
"re-built" bags. Stop by and look them over
. . . and get our prices. It may result in a
considerable saving to you.
