When Randolph waa absent from
hla place In the Senate during the
naulnf , week. Peggy gave little
thought of It It waa rumored that
he waa aUg-htly Indiapoaed, and aha
aaumed thla to be the ease
Wildly contradictory atorlea had
begun to aweep Waahlngtm about
the mounting opposition to Jack
eon. Some persona felt that tha
President was soon to lose oontrol
entirely, many went so far as to
predict open national revolt It waa
with a great deal of anxiety that
foggy accompanied her husband to
the Jefferson Birthday celebration
In the Senate. Tales were in the air
that Jackson was to be challenged
then and there, aa he delivered the
address of welcome. The apostles of
states' freedom were reported : to
havo already established the nuc
leus of a new Southern government
Xeejlng that Jajokson would be dis
credited and overthrown.
The lobby , of the Senate waa
crowded. The apecialty of the sou
venir vendors waa a fifteen-cent
handkerchief adorned with a rea
sonably good likeness of Jefferson.
Leaving her husband, Peggy took
her place in the gallery. A wild con
fusion of voices sounded all about
her, and a sense of imminent crisis
eeer.-.cd to pervade the atmosphere.
When a gavel was pounded from
the rostrum the chatter did not al
together die - out and not all the
people present rose in deferential
tribute as Jackson was introduced-
"Gentlemen," began the President,
"you are all aware of the signifi
cance of this great day, the birth
day of that illustrious American,
"And a good States' Rlghter!"
shouted a heckler from the upper
tier. ' ' -
A buzz of excited comment broke
out It appeared that at any mo
ment a bomb might be set off
breaking up the gathering in dis
order; and - perhaps shattering the
bonds of Union at the same time.
But Jaokson had never had a firm
er grip on himself, never before had
he felt it ao vital to impress his
Will and personality on his listeners.
"A good States' Rightor is a de
voted servant of ' Democracy," he
went on. "From the depth of my
heart I support' these great words
by a great American, Daniel Web
ster." He motioned toward Webster,
who waa seated nearby. "This is
what he said: When my eyea shall
be turned for the, last time toward
the meridian eun, I hope I may see
him shining. on my united, free and
happy country. I hope I shall not
live to see his beams falling upon
the dispersed structure of this glo
rious Union. I hope to see, spread
'all over my country's flag, blazoned
in letters of light and proudly float
ing above land and sea: "Union and
Liberty,- now and forever,, one and
inseparable!"" , .-Jf ;&.,
An applause broke forth that al
most shook the rafters! Peggy,: her
foars- vanished, felt her, eyes fill
with tears. She took the corsage
from her dress and threw it on the
platform before Jackson, as the
entire assemblage kilned in spon
taneous and patriotic rendition- of
"Hail, ColumbIa."ir?:it-t:4i.-K .

afternoon,, happy, beyond words at
-Jackson's victory, Cuthbert, the old

I like to go ta Hertford, '
it's not so very far; -Yon
can sro there on a hike
Or in a motor car. 1
When e'er I see the river
And cross the water wide
It brings to me contentment
Whatever doth betide. '
I like to cross the bridge ,
And hear the motors spin. ( '.
It is pretty as a picture,
Just as you enter in. , ... -
That old weeping willow, 1
With its branches swinging low, ?
Is standing there to greet you
As yon come and go., '
The stores are all remodeled,
And are really up-to-date; -u,
You always get quick service,' 1 '
Yon do not have to wait .,
There are lots of nice things there
Which: you sorely will want
Just look them over
And see if you don't.
There are things for Mother,
Dad and small Sister Sne,
And one thing and another
For little buddy, too.
The people always greet you
With smiles they never frown
They're a pleasant lot of people
In a friendly little town.
I like to go to Hertford,
The place is hard to beat.
For a town of its size
It is almost complete.
