This formidable list is not sufficient to do full justice to the subject. The full New York list contains the names of two hundred towns. The greatest demonstration in Ohio was at Toledo. Roosevelt made forty speeches in the State. His great tour West began in Michigan and continued through the States named above. Eleven States West of the Mississippi were visited in the tour that included Montana, and earlier in the season he was in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
THE PRESIDENT'S LITERARY WORK.
The productiveness of the pen of Theodore Roosevelt is phenomenal, or would be if he were not a phenomenon of Energy and industry. We have been at pains to collect an almost complete list of his books. It will be noted that one of the books sold for $15.00, and that the Sagamore edition consists of fifteen volumes. We have to say, however, that the most important, in the sense that they are the most instructive of the volumes turned out by the President's brilliant and busy pen, are the Public Papers produced while he was Governor of New York.

RIDE FROM MOUNT MARCY.
From the Source of the Hudson to the Niaraga River—How Roosevelt Came to be on Mount Marcy When McKinley Died—Delay of Information and Rush from the Adirondacks to Lake Erie—The Splendid Story of the Ride.
ABSORBED in the sudden announcement of the failure of President McKinley's strength, the people of all countries gave little attention for the moment, to the movements of his successor, knowing that in the critical days, when hope of the recovery of the President was entertained, but grave danger known, the Vice-President was close at hand; and in the period of confidence, he hastened to the Northern mountains of New York, to be with his wife and children, for a change from the air of the sea. It was ascertained, too, that when the relapse was followed fast with "unmerciful disaster," Mr. Roosevelt was speedily where duty called him. The fact that he had made a journey full of perils was not well known, or much regarded. It comes out, however, that the ride from the tiny lake on the loftiest Adirondack, to the city identified with the sublime torrent of Niagara, was one of startling risk. A writer close to the centres of official intelligence, dating at New York, wrote accurate information of Roosevelt's second trip during the tragic days across the State of New York, saying it was one of the most trying experiences a traveler ever had to come out of safely.
"Some of his friends, who met him in Buffalo after his arrival on Saturday last, have been in communication with others, who were intimates of his in this city, and they report that it seemed to them that he has been tried as though by fire when he came out of the north woods after that dark and dramatic night ride over the mountains, he came out of uncertainty, in which he had been given every reason to hope for the best, into the appalling certainty that his hopes were groundless.
"He entered his car at the foothills of the Adirondacks a little after sunrise, not to leave it until eight hours later, when he was at the station in Buffalo. He was alone. He had not one friend to turn to for consolation or for counsel. He found himself suddenly in the presence of appalling responsibilities, and not one of his friends has any doubt that every moment of that swift and silent
