Theodore Roosevelt sat in a box at
Carnegie hall when Mr. Hughes deliv-
ered his speech of acceptance and vig-
orously applauded every telling point
The colonel repeatedly arose and
bowed in response to the cheers for
him and the shouts of “Teddy!” “Ted-
Cy!” “Hurrah for Teddy!” and when
the meeting adjourned he made the
following statement:
“It is an admirable speech, and I
wish to call attention to the following
“ particularly pleased with the
exposure of the folly, and worse than
folly, of Mr. Wilson's Mexican policy
and of the way in which this policy
has brought humiliation to the United
States and disaster to Mexico itself.
“Moreover, 1 am very glad of the
straightforward manner in which Mr.
‘Hughes has shown the ridicule with
which Mr. Wilson has covered this
nation by the manner in which he al-
lowed foreign powers to gain the im-
pression that, although he used the
strongest. words in ‘diplomacy, they
were not to be taken seriously.
Not Words Which Count.
“As Mr. Hughes said, itis not words,
but the strength and resolution: be-
hind the words which count. As Mr,
Hughes pointed out, there is no doubt
that if Mr. Wilson's conduct and, ac-
tion had been such as to make the for-
eign nations believe that he meant pre-
cisely what he sald in his “strict ac-
countability’ there would have been no
cestruction of American lives’ by the
sinking of the Lusitania.
“When Mr. Hughes uses strong words
his record shows that they are always
backed by strong deeds, and therefore
ir the enormous majority of cases the
use of strong words renders it unnec-
essary ever to have recourse to strong
‘Again, Mr. Hughes speaks in char-
acteristically straightforward fashion
of the eutrages committed on muni-
tions plants, and all men, whether eciti-
zens of foreign nations or nominal citi-
zens of our own land, who had in any
shape or way abetted or condoned
those actions cam understand that Mr.
Hughes, if president, will protect these
domestic American interests and pun-
Ish offenders against them with the
fearlessness and thoroughness that he
showed in dealing with the powers of |
evil at Albany.
Brought Nation to Ignominy.
“Just before coming in to listen to
Mr. Hughes' just characterization of
Mr. Wilson's failure to protect the
lives and property of Americans in
Mexico and on the high seas I hap-
pened to pick up John Fiske’s ‘Critical
Period of American History’ and was
struck by the follwing two sentences:
“*A government touches’ the lowest
point of ignominy when it confesses
its inability to protect the lives and
the property of its citizens. A gov-
‘ernment which has come to this has
failed in discharging the primary func-
J tion of government cand: forthwith
ceases to have any reason for exist-
ing: >
' “Mr, Hughes has pointed out in his |
speech with self restraint, but with
emphasis, that it is precisely this
primary function which Mr.” Wiison’s
administration has fédiled to dscharge
and that it is. precisély this: point of.
ignominy to which he has reduced the
nation over which he is president.”

“Surely the ehief (}light in going
sway from home is the joy of getting
back again,” writes David Grayson in
“The Friendly Road.” “I shall never]
forget that spring moiain when ©
walked from the citi of Kilburn into
the open country—my bag on my back,
a song in my throat, and the gray road
stretching straight before me. I remems
ber how eagerly I looked out across
the fields and meadows and rested my
eyes upon the distant hills. How roomy
it all was! I looked up into the clear
blue of the sky. There was space here
to breathe....As the old prophet says,
it was a place where a man might be
placed alone in the midst of the earth.
“I was strangély glad that morning
of every little stream that ran under
the bridges, I was glad of the trees I
passed, glad of every bird and squir-
rel in the branches, glad of the cattle
grazing in the fields, glad of the jolly
boys I saw on their way to school with
their dinner pails, glad of the bluff,
red-faced teamster I met, and of the
snug farmer who waved his hand at
me and wished me a friendly good
morning. It seemed to me that I liked
every one I saw, and that every one
liked me.
“So I walked onward that morning
nor ever have had such a sense of re-
lief and escape, nor ever such a feel
ing of gayety.

‘This is my own country. Those hills
are mine, and all the fields, and the
trees and the sky—and the road here
belongs to me as much as it does to
“Coming presently to a small house
near the side of the road, I saw a wo-
man working with a trowel in her
sunny garden. It was good to see her
turn over the warm brown soil; it was
good to see the plump green rows of
téttuce’ and the thin green rows of
onions, and the nasturtiums an sweet
peas; it was good—after so many days
in that desert of—to get. a whiff
of blossoming things. I stood for a mo-
ment looking quietly over the fence
before the woman saw me. When at
last she turned and looked up, I said:
“Good morning.’
“She paused, trowel in hand.
“Good morning, she replied, ‘you
look happy’
