nd his men nny friendlier, but one
thin? was certain. If harm camo to
the girl who had risked her life to
warn them of their danger It would
have to come to her over their dead
Wherevter she went among the strikers
9he was welcomed with a kind of gal
lant adoration. Something about her
eemed, when she entered a room, to
pull the rudest and the most Ignorant
man to their feet.- Kvcrywhero she
went she preached her gospel, softened
hearts and made men and women hope
ful of better things. Her rostrum was
the kitchen, tho front steps, the shade
of an elm. She was Indefatigable. No
mind, however feeble, was unworthy
of her greatest pains. Little children
she took upon her knee and talked sense
to them. And presently only those who
were naturally bloodthirsty and who
loved violence for its own sako talked
onenlv of attacking the Btockade. It
seemed to Celestla that the strlkors' do- ,
mands were not unjust, and she deter
mined to ond the strike by persuading
Kehr and tho men he represented to
meet their demands.
Elections were coming on, and the
best way to secure the labor vote was
to see that labor's envelope was better
filled than ever before. With a new
form of government in control of the
nation's most disinterested and able
men there would be such a saving of
national waste that doubling tho pay
of every laborer In the country would
be but a drop in the bucket.
Tommy could not sco any posstblo
good In Celestla's form of millennium.
Ho felt that, Innocently, of course,
and with the best Intention, she was
trying to betray labor Into the hands
of capital, and ho fought her doctrlno
tooth and nail. But what she seemed
to offer was bo glittering and alluring
to tho poor and needy that Tommy's
opposing arguments found few listeners
in Bitumen.
Celestla preached that government of
tho people, by the people, for the peo
ple has beon proved a gigantic failure,
for two excellent reasons; (1) it isn't
by the people, and (2) it Isn't for the
people. The fathers who set down
some very noblo aspirations In black
and white were Instantly succeeded by
politicians, who twisted those aspira
tions to their own ends. We are today
a government of the people, by the
politicians, and for the politicians. Pa
triotism, if it Isn't dead, has gone to
sleep. There are patriotic Virginians,
patriotic Vormonters, too, but there are
very few patriotic Americans. If the
great city of Now York, under tho
threat of tho enemy's guns, was
mulcted of a billion dollars in tribute,
do you think the States far from salt
water would caro? They'd make a loud
noise with their newspapers, but a ma
jority of their patriotic inhabitants, I
think, would laugh in their sleeves.
And this sort of thing Is the fault of
the politicians, who havo beclouded all
the clear Issues.
That every city of the size of Potta
wotaunl should have a postofflee twice
too big for It is not doing anything for
the people. A navy powerful enough to
protect the Atlantic coast and the Pa
cific coast from any enemy or group of
enemies would bo doing something for
the people. The salaries of Congress
men and Senators and pensions paid
without reason or justice would go far I
toward eradicating consumption. As
b jb nits .iiuircy is uuBuiuLuiy wusit'U.
If some Congressmen and Senators aro
able and patriotic, 90 per cent of them
nre the oppositeand render really able
and patriotic legislation out of the ques
tion. No business runns this United States
nre run could possibly be a success.
No employe of such a business could bo ,
blamed for faillnK In resnect for his em
ployers or In ioyaltv to them. Wo
want our country to be resv-ctable and
a success or don't we? Lee It be run
with tho same American efficiency with
which the Standard Oil Company has
been run, and nobody will be poor and
no part of any city will bo dirty and
full of disease.
If there was no waste there would
be plenty of money for everybody, or
t least of the things money can buy.

sway, and Mrs. aunsdorf had devised a
trick to thwart It. Having learned that
there was something In Celostla's aye,
some power which she could neither
fathom nor resist, Mrs. Gunsdorf main
tained her own Independence in thought
and action by tho simple expedient of
never meeting Colestla's eye.
Mrs. Gunsdorf was violently opposed
to Colestla's theories. This opposition
was not arrived at by elaborate mental
process. The two women loved the samo
mnn. And fhn mnn vr nhvlmialv Invncl
'Celestla (for whon he wasn't with her
he was trying his best to be with her).
This was enough to place Mrs. Gunsdorf
on any side of any question if only It
was the opposite, to Cclestla's. Twice,
when Celestla was addressing meetings
of strikers (In Interest of peace and
progress). Mrs. Gunsdorf succeeded in
creating such violent disturbance that
she had to be removed forcibly from the
The strikers' favorite place for meeting
was In a large, shabby dance hall. In
the meanest and most squalid section of
Bitumen. Having been ejected from thia
hall. Mrs. Gunsdorf stood upon the outer
steps, a picture of Impotent and Jealous
A young woman, who, from her plain,
neat costume rather suggested that she
might be a lady's maid, and whose fea
tures were not distinctly visible owing
to a thick veil, turned from perusing a
bill poster which announced to the
passerby the purpose of the meeting,
at that moment In progress, to look at
Mrs. Gunsdorf.
Mrs. Gunsdorf In turned eyed the
stranger, and her rage gave placo
gradually to curiosity. Neatly and
smartly dressed young women were
vory rare in Bitumen.
"Is the meeting over?" naked the
stranger presently.
Mrs. Gunsdorf shook her head.
"Nor likely to be as long as there's a
fool left to listen; When she gets
through speaking thoy yell for her until
she has to speak again. Ever hear
Mrs. Gunsdorf shrugged her vigorous
shoulders with contempt.
"I never havo," said the stranger. "I
think I don't want to."
"Then what brings you to Bitumen?
People are pouring In from all around
to hear what she says. There don't
seem to bo any reason for coming to
"But she doesn't seem to have Im
pressed you favorably?"
"Me! Hush! I don't say she hasn't
got good looks of a kind, but what
a man can see In a namby, pamby,
goody, goody llko her gets mo. Well,
I'm golni; to move on. So long!"
The stranger hesitated, then simply
followed and overtook Mrs. Gunsdorf.
"Do you mind If I walk with you?
I I was going your way."
"How do you know which way I was
"I mean the way you are starting
to do." The stranger laughed frankly.
"And that's not the wholo truth. I
came to Bitumen to find out certain
things. I'm a sort of reporter and new
at the business. The boss told mo there
was a big story hero and for me to go
and get It. He only gave me a few
hints to go on, and "
"You want to aBk me some questions?
is that It? Well, fire ahead."
"Of course," said the stranger, "any

"Tommy Barclay," began Mr?. Guns

on, "Is mashed on tho girl from heaven."
"Yes," said the stranger, almost In a

Gunsdorf resumed, "who'd bo willing to

I don't mean Celestla. She likes him well
enough In her namby pamby too-busy-

another woman with red blood In her
veins. Well, she made all the row.
Crazy Jealous sho was, I guess. Her
love seemed to turn to hate, and sho
made out that he oh, got too fresh
with her. and yelled for help, and her
husband and some friends came, and
they was going to lynch Tommy Bar

around his neck, when along she
came "
"Tho woman?"
"Tho girl from heaven. And she talked,
and pretty soon she got hold of the
woman, and made her own up."
"Made her?"
"If you're fool enough to look In her
eyes, she can make you do any blame
thing sho wants you to do. But I've
learned seme. 1 don't look at her eyes,
and then I'm all right."
"And then there was no truth In the
rumor that Mr. Barclay got too fresh
with a woman?"
No truth at all."
The stranger made a small faint
sound. It wasn't a word or a sigh or

would ho better for him If he got
