Wordsworth in one of his poems speil.s of "a man too happy for mortal tty. 1 ' We sometimes forget the spiritual significance of joy. The stoics believed that happiness was not essential to man unci not to be expected. Happiness el a specific kind, based upon good fortunate to the individual. Is indeed not always to be expected nor always to be desired. Mut the deeper hap piness and Joy that come from the Bure triumph of the good anil the true are essential to tin* individual well be ing and the progress of society. There have been those who learned through a beautiful consecration "to draw contentment from a cup of tears" and who came, through life's higher discipline. t<> know that there Is a deep and abiding Joy in the midst of pain and disapointment. a joy built upon the knowledge of life's greatness «ml the ability of the soul to rise above the temporary tiling. Flieh a joy as this is needed to make n man capable of inheriting eternity here and hereafter, for it raises man above tile merely mortal and invests him with energy to pursue the tasks that nre without end and fills him with a desire to ally himself with the powers that build the beauty of a con tinuing world.-St. Paul Pioneer Press.

CHAPTER IX. The Melting Pot. |II1S action on tbe part of the prince completely disarmed Hawthorne and Blake for the moment. Under orders of the prince the guards seized the two Eng lish meu nnd hurried them off to Juli again. Once more the populace was in a turmoil. The prince knew that he had gained u temporary advantage, and he pro|H»sed to make the best of it. From his seat near the committee table be urged: "People, how long are you to be made the tools of these foreigners? Let's to the palace and this time force the sur render of the king." Unwtborue tried to gnin their atten tion, but they wouldn't listen to him now. Led by the priuce. they started for tile palace. Hawthorne und Blake took a short cut and were there fully ten minutes iu the lead of the mob. "You wait here," Hawthorne told Blake when they reached the front of the palace, "and let me know the mo ment they come iu sight." Hawthorne brushed by the guards and went Immediately to the king in T cv "Well, wo won't surrender wmle wo have this." tbe same room thut be bad given au dience to the mob iu tbe moruiug. "What news': What news?" pleaded tbe kiug. wbo wae beginning to show (be effects of the attempt to dethrone him. Hawthorne quickly told him of the prime's scheme to have the guards pose as Americana and then when be was foiled to expose them "Here's the crisis." announced Haw thorne. wbo had completely regained his fighting prowess. "Hera's where we make our last stand.'* "No. We'll surrender. It isn't worth the fight." "You've placed yourself In my bands, haven't yon?" "Yen. But we're completely outnum bered. and we can never win that crowd now." "Well, we won't surrender while we have thin,** announced Hawthorne, fon dling bis revolver. "l)o as you will," meekly obeyed the klug. Just then Blake rushed Into the room. •'They're here!" lie announced. No Houiiei und ue spoken than in rushed tlie prince, followed by the committee that had been appointed to oversee the testing at the gold. "We demand your atidlcutlon Imme dluiely!" shouted the prince. "Now, just a minute.** urged Haw thorne. again taking the center of tbe stage. "How much louger are yon peo ple going to lie made the tools of this man? You've listened to him loug enough. Let me tell yon a few things. Do you know that It was this man. your prince, who took those guards out of the jail and made them |mse us new ly arrived Americans?" demanded Hawthorne. "Impossible!" shouted Itudnlskt. "Is It? Well, you'll find out." Then, turning to the king, he said: "Your majesty, order those men brought here Immediately. Let ua bear their stories." "YVhat! Would you take tbe word of two guards who tmd betrayed tbelr commander?" exclaimed tbe prince. "Do yon want to heur these men?" Huwtborue appealed to tbe crowd. There were a few faint voices in tbe affirmative, while Rndulakl tried to drown them out witb a resounding "No!" "We'll hear them." announced Haw thorne. By this time the guards, under orders of the prince, were on their way to tbe jail. Tbe prince was doing his best to he beard, but Hawthorne held their atten tion and. atrange to say. for the time being bad quelled their revolutionary apirit. "Men. stop this nonsense. Cool off! Do what la best for Borrovina 7" "You cannot pass judgment on that sir," declared tbe prince. "What can you know of Borrovinn'a conditions and needs?" "I know more than you think." was Hawthorne's reply. "That's why I'm "Gee, but 1 could make a pot ot money tor all you chaps.'' here. Do you know what my business is? Making money." "Y'es. He makes it himself out of any old stuff he may pick up along tbe wayside." said the prince, in u vain at tempt to make Hawthorne look ridicu lous iu the eyes of t be crowd. "Is that so?" was the American's re ply. "Blake, bring in that pot." Blake immediately appeared witb a big melting pot on a large iron tray. Beiieutb tbe pot was an oil tire "Now we'll see what tuy money is made of." said Hawthorne. "(Jive me a Borrovina gold coin?" be asked of the crowd. The senator, who had come in but a few moments betöre, ofiered one. but Hawthorne said: "No. senator. We want a native of Borrovina to produce the coin." "Here." said one ot the merebnnts. Hawthorne placed It In the pot. "Now watch this melt, and while It Is melting I'm going to tell you some thing. people." said Hawthorne. "Do you know why i ennte here and have been keeping under cover till now? Simply because I saw a cork ing good chance to put this country on its teet und at the sniue time rake In a few more millions for myself. You've got one grand little chance here to clear up n lot of fortunes. And you're making tond pie of that chance with your silly six for a quarter revo lution I warn you. right here and now. boys, if you carry this thing any further I'm going to pack up, leave you fiat broke and go home. "Gee. but I could make a pot ot money for all you chaps If you weren't so busy witb this revolution. And I guess you could all stand Having a little cash." Great wealth can usually command a hearing So cun brazen assurance. And tbe blend ot the two was enough to bold the conspirators spellbound. Tbe mob. by giviug ear to common sense, suddenly ceased to be a mob. Hawthorne knew tills, and be went on more pleasantly: "Sure you conld use cash. Yon'vo gotten out of tbe habit, but you could »«on get the bang of It again. The only reason you haven't got money la because you've spent more time on revolutions than on business. That's what l*m here for—to start yon chaps oo tbe road to fortune. Anybody who la doesn't care "to tafi a plump wad naedn't bother to Ustoa to me. "General." he went oa, singling out Hobenloo aa tbe keyetone of the revo lution. "bow'd you like to have a palace of your own, a benzine boggy and a bank account? All (bat'd be kind of bad. bey? Yon. Mr. Hotelkeeper. how'd you like to bave people flocking from all over tbe world to your botel, so you'd bave nothing to do but wear doth»» und «•ount your winnings? How'd all you others like to have steady jobs at good pay and to bave this town connected by railway with all the big centers, railroads with fat stock and yon fellows leu ruing tbe cou pon cutting habit? Break your hearts, wouldn't it? Y'ou soldiers, how'd you like all your back pay handed to you and au assurance that there'll be no more arrears?" By this time the Borrovina coin had been melted and was removed from the smelter and one of Hawthorne's coins replaced IL Then Hawthorne contin ued: "Well. 1 tell you all those things are possible. In fact, ibey're all dead easy. They're tbe things I came here to do. But they can't be done wblle you're running around In a circle making a noise like throne wreckers. Cut out tbe revolutionlng nnd get sense. What's the use ot shooting up u lot ot perfectly good people and changing one ruler for another? Make Borrovina a real coun try, not a comic oiiera land. "Now, then." be resumed, beckoning to Blake, wbo obediently came forward witb the suit case, "gentlemen, here's my secretary. Mr. Rodney Blake. Here, Rod. put tbe suit case on the desk. 1 realize what you people nre thinking. You're thinking: 'All this American's talk listens flue. But how are we golug to make money without some capital to start on?' Well, I happened to antici pate thut question. Here's tbe unswer." He opened tbe suit case as he spoke and displayed to the goggling eyes of the revolutionists for the first time tbe closely wedged mass of gold and bank notes. Carelessly he rippled a thick sheaf of notes. He jingled n thick bag of gold and poured a glittering yellow stream of its contents from one band to the other. "People." shouted tbe prince, making bis lust appeal, "I beg of you not to be fooled. It isn't real inouey." "Isn't It?" said Hawthorne, turning toward the prince. Then be showed them tlie melted American coin. "Doesn't tbat look real? Just a little bit more realistic than tbe genuine Borrovina coin, isn't It? Pretty bad, eh?" he observed, as the onlookers stared witb the eyes of famished dogs who behold a juicy steak. "Real money. And enough of it to buy a dozen sena tors. I understand the army Is in ar rears of pay. Here's enough cash to settle the back snlary of every officer in Borrovina. And I'll make that cash settlement right here and now." A buzz of wondering Joy from the uniformed contingent of tbe crowd broke in upon him. But be raised his voice and continued: "Work will be started at once on the development of your rouds. tbe build ing of a casino, the world wide adver tising of your great mineral springs and resources. There will be good work for tbe unemployed, money for the des titute. In short. I'm going to put Bor rovinu on tbe map. In the meantime, let's clear up this matter ot back pay. General Hobenloe, bow much salary is due you?" "Seven thousand francs." answered tbe geueral. speaking like a man in a dream. Hawthorne witb nimble lingers comited out the sum and handed it to the bewildered Hohenloe. talking rap idly to the rest as be did so. "Y'es, gentlemen." said he. "all I've told you can he realized Borrovina can be made a thriving, prosperous nation. But there's one stutnbllug block we must remove at the very outset. And that stumbling block is Prince Vladi mir. Y'ou'vc got to take Vladimir out for a walk and lose him Borrovinn will he no good while he's mixing in Its affairs, and yon may as well kuow it now." "It Is sn outrage!" spluttered Radnl skl, who had noted with dazed horror the sudden shifting of his adored mas ter's hopes of kingship and who now found his voice for the first time. "1 tell you It Is an outrage! I" "It Is." assented Hawthorne. "But It Isn't going to De any louger. For we're going to seud him packing. Step up. gentlemen! Yon came here for a set tlement of yonr difficulties. I'm tbe uinn to settle them all. as I've Just ex plained to you. What shall it be? Revolution and ruin or prosjiertty and loyal ulleglnnce to bis majesty? Speak up! Do I pay you your money or do you stay dead broke? Now * tbe time to answer Last call for tbe dining car. gentlemen! Which shall tt be?" "Long live the king!" yelled one money loving patriot And the cry was taken up. "Revolution's over!" curtly announc ed Hawthorne. "Come along now. everybody, and get yours!" Continued next week. Tbs Sneezing Prayer. The custom of following a sneew with a prayer goes so far back into the past it is next to impossible to say wheu it actually began. According to Btruda the custom originated among tbe Assyrians, who. through an opin ion of the danger that attended It, aft er the act of sneezing made a short prayer to the gods. The Romans aft er sneezing cried out. "Jupiter, help me!" The custom is mentioned by Homer, the early Jewish writers and others, ana is found among many sav age tribes.
