THE RICHMOND PAULADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, SUNDAY, AUGUST 15, 1909. n ' "I feci," so the man' from Steele's)' aid, "like any other gootl citizen does. I feel that some - of these men are. guilty, we don't know iroicn ones, oxi coarse. We have formed1 this opinion by general report from the newspa pers. Nowwith that feeling it would; take some very positive evidence to. make me think that these men were not gnllty If I should acquit them. Bat I should act entirely upon thettes tlmony. "But," said the defense, "yon say ; that It would take positiveevldemee of their Innocence before you could .con sent to return them not guilty?" "Yes, I should want some strong; evi dence." "Well. If the strong evidence ofjtbeir Innocence was not Introduced. then you want to convict them f "Certainly." Then the judge took him In band. dad after a time his honor get film to ay: ' "I believe I cenld try the ease ontthe evldnce alone fairly." And so they took him, and they teok me In the same way when it came nay turn. This Is scarcely the place to telietbe tory of that famous trial. It has kept me too long as It Is. The trial of nhe anarchists was an odd accident lnmy life, however, which, coming as It' did when I had my foot placed on the dad der of fortune, bad something to do with making me what I. am today. Up to this time I bad never reflected much upon the deeper things of life. The world seemed good to mea stoat.. hearty place to light in. I had made money la the scheme of things as they are. and I found It good. I wanted tori make some more money, and I had lit tle patience with the kicked who tried to upset the machine. But I bad not J reasoned It out There in the court-u room and later shut up In the Juryi quarters day after day. cut off fronri my usual habits. I thought over somei of the real questions of our life audi - - - - tm 1 J. M i.il M made for myself a kind of philosophy, Today, after the lapse of eighteen years, I can see It all as I saw it then the small, dirty courtroom, the cold, precise face of the judge, the face of the eight mea whom the police mid ferreted out of their boles for us to try. There wasn't much dignity in the performance. Some pretty, fashionably, dressed girls sat up behind the Judge.! almost touching elbows with his honor., They came there as though to play whispering and eating candy. There was the wrangling among the lawyers, snarling back and forth to show their Ansnefiieaa finf m Anna St as mn 1S1f oftenest to the faces of those eight men for whose lives the game was be ing played. Two were stupid, three were shifty, but the other three bad an honest glow. . kind of wild enthusi asm, that came with their foreign blood maybe. They wera dreamers of wild dreams, but no hvtgs. ' From the eta at it Heemed plain that the state conM not show who threw that fatal bomt nor who made It nor anything about It. The best the state could do would be to prove conspiracy. The only connection the lawyers could establish between those eight men and the mischief of ' that night was a lot of loose talk. His honor made the law afterward be boasted of It as be went long. He showed us what sedition was, and that was all we needed to know. Then we could administer the lesson.- New that eighteen years have paased that looks to me like mighty dangsreus law. Then I was quick enough te accept' It. I When we filed into the courtroom the last morning to listen te the judge's charge, the first face . saw was that of Hillary Cox. A big red) scar branching like a spider's web disttguredther right cheek. It drew my eyes (right to her at once. All ber color and the plump, pretty look of health bad gone for good. She looked old and sour and excited. And I wished ahethadn't come there. It seemed as thougb she was waiting for her revenge for the loss of her youth and good looks. She was counting on me to give it to ber. Ed sat beside her, holding her hand in a protecting - way. He was an" honest right feeling sort of fellow, And I guessed that ber loss of good" looks would make no difference in bis mar rying her Near the dtotriet attorney sat Mr. DreuuK He listened to the judge's charge very closely, nodding his head as his hoaor made his points and ram- med conviction into us. "In behalf of society". His phrase ran In my head all through the trial. That was the point of It all a strug gle between sensible folks who went about their business and tried to get all there was la It. like myself, and some scum from Europe who didn't like the way things are handed out in this workt. We must hang these reb els for aa example to all men. To be siux- the . noMw had JslUed. a score or mm 3 PER CENT, on SAVINGS i o 7 DUea.es. Female Olaeasaa, Loss of la.

And then back to business. 1 suppose that the world seemed to me so good a place to bustle in that I couldn't rigbtly appreciate the com plaint of these rebels against society. And at any rate I was convinced that we sensible folks who bad the upper band could not tolerate any bomb fool ishness. "In behalf of society" yec before we had left our seats in the courtroom my mind was made up. Guilty or not, these men must suffer for their foolish opinions, which were dead against the majority. Thus I performed my duty to society. When our verdict was ready and we came In to be discharged. I saw Hil lary Cox again. As the foreman rose to give our verdict her scarred face flushed with excitement, and an ugly scowl crept over her brow. I turned away.. Queer thoughts came Into my mbad, for the bad air and the weeks of close conlnement had made me nerv ous, X suppose. Society! I seemed to see eld Strauss. with his puffy, ashen face and his broad bands that booked In ibe dollars, dirty or clean, and Vlt zer,.who kept' our honorable council on bis .payroll for cenYenleace, and the man who bad been with Lou Pierson that night aad many others. Were they 'better men before the eye of God than, these eight misguided fools whom we were about to punish? Who did the most harm to society, tbey or that pale faced Fielden, who might have been a saint Instead of an anarchist? " The judge was still making remarks; the jury were listening restlessly; the prisoners at the bar seemed little in terested in the occasion. I kept saying to myself: "Society! In behalf of soci ety! I have done my duty in behalf of society." But what was this almighty society, anyhow, save a lot of fools and scamps, with a sprinkling of strong souls, who were fighting for life, all of them fighting for what only a few could get? My eyes rested on D..W.. tann. 1 Via ,A TTI 4 . Hostetter's face in tbe crowd. His jaw was banging open, and be was staring at the judge, trying to understand it all. Poor Ed! He wouldn't have much show in the scramble If society didn't protect him. Suddenly a meaning to it all came to me like a great light The strong must rule. The world was for the strong. It was tbe act of an idiot to deny - that truth. Tes, life was for the strong, all there was in it I saw It so then, and I have lived it so all my life. -:..;;v,-- The man from Steele's nudged my elbow. "My, I tell you I'll be glad to get home tonight! Won't the old woman's food taste slick tonight? You bet" "The Jury Is discharged." The play was over. The specta tors were moving from tbe crowded room. At the door my friends were waiting for me. Hillary Cox stretched up a thin band. "Thank you. Van," she said. "You fellows did just right" Hostet ter added. " Slocum said nothing, but there was a dubious smile on bis lips. "We're going to blow you off for a dinner at the Palmer House, tbe best you ever ate." Dick Pierson called out loudly. Then he, added for tbe benefit of the onlookers, "To hell with the an archists!" "Quit that!" I said sharply, some of those queer doubts about the justice of the act I bad been concerned in re turning to me. "It's over now and let's drop it" It was good to be out on the streets once more, knocking elbows with folks, and my heart soon began to feel right In tbe lobby of the hotel men 1 didn't know, who recognized me as one of the famous Jury, came up to me and shook hands and said pleasant things. Be fore the dinner was far along I was quite myself again, and when Slocum set up the champagne for tbe party 1 had begun to feel rather proud of tbe part I bad taken In public affairs. Aft er all it was a fine thing to live and hustle with your neighbors for the dol lars -'''' . , I had done my part to make tbe game go on smoothly At the yards tbe next morning it was the same thing. My desk was covered with flowers, aad the boys kept me busy shaking hands and taking in the cigars until I thought I was at a church presentation party. Big John was one of the first to wel come me back. "Say, do you want a vacation? The old man thinks a month or two would be the right thing. Enjoy yourself, my boy, after your arduous duty." "Shoo!" I replied. "What would I do with a month's vacation.. John? I've just pined to be back bore at work. What do I want to light out for now?" "Supposing some of 'em should try to fix yoa?Jie crUiceS.

I was for society as it is, first last and an tbe time, and I felt good to be in It ' : Once, some months biter. I saw those eight men again, when tbey were brought Into court to be sentenced. They all bad a chance to speechify, and I listened to them for a time. 1 didn't take much stock in Spies and Parsons long winded, talby, wild fel lows. ' Bat tbe others, who weren't as glib as those two, had a kind of sim ple sincerity about them. They bad tee courage to stand up there In the face of death and say what they be lieved. No one plead for mercy. I was sorry for them. But nevertheless it was comfortable to be of the strong. Tbe world is for tbe strong, I said to myself as I left tbe court and I am one of them! CHAPTER IX. AKOTHER BOOST. I become of importance in Dround,s. Making money The end of Ma Pier son' a Rivals in sausage conclude to sell my business Bluffing old Strauss. Carmichael regards me with respect. FTER tbe trial came another boost at Dround's. Thanks to tbe big Irishman, I had done pretty well before. But now there was some one at the top watch ing me. I was given a chance to see what I could do to make markets in the new southwest, which was develop ing rapidly and in my opinion offered a weak house like ours a better oppor tunity than tbe older fields. And my little venture with the broth ers Scbuuemann was booming all tbe time. Ed and Sloco bad looked out for my interests durlug tbe trial and had kept my partners from robbing me. Pretty soon I was able to buy out their Interest in the Aurora plant and get rid of them altogether, putting Ed in as my manager. The Scbunemanns took to peddling our kosher meat in Chica go and worked up a good trade. In my trips for Dround & Co. I was able to make a large business for the Duchess brand of sausage, which soon began to attract attention. One day Carmichael said to me: "So you're a sausage maker, after all. Van?" "Yes, and coining money, too," I re plied. "Perhaps Mr. Dround would think differently now about tbe cat's meat business." Carmichael grunted. I suspected that he might like to have me offer the firm a chance to come into my business, but I had no such idea. I saw a great fu ture In sausages and. after that, other things down a long vista of golden years. About this time Lou Pierson disap peared from tbe bouse and never came back. Slocum went east and did bis best to find the girl. He may have been too proud to marry ber sister, but be felt badly enough over Lou's going that way. Later, when I 6aw the girl, in New York, I concluded her return could do no good to any one and said nothing. After Lou disappeared tbe old man began to drink pretty bard and finally bad to go to the hospital. The Van Buren street house was a drearier place than ever, and Slocum and I decided to move and start house keeping together. Ma Pierson needed us no longer. The Hostetters were keeping bouse for the old lady, for Ed married Hillary shortly after the trial, and together tbey tried running the Enterprise. But tbey could not make It go somehow, so later I made Ed my manager, as I have said. Some time after this, when the old lady Pierson got sick. Slocum and I saw that she had a little rest and comfort to the end of ber days, for her son Dick could never look after anybody but himself. We had not been long in our com fortable flat on tbe south side before an unexpected chance came, to me to make a lot of money. As I have said, the Duchess brand of sausage packed In dainty little boxes was making a name for Itself and attracting the at tentlon of the trade- I began to have rivals, and my profits were cut some what, but tbey could never drive out the Duchess, which had a good start. One day Carmichael asked me If I would like to sell my sausage factory. as be called the Aurora plant I told him Jokingly he hadn't tbe money to buy it But in reality I waa ready to sell, for I saw that if the big pack era went into tbe business In earnest I could not compete. Aad It was only a matter of time before they would see, as I had seen, the immense profit in such small things. So when a few days later Carmichael said that one of Strauss mea bad asked him to bring me over to their place I went quick enough. Carmichael took me Into Strauss' of flee and introduced me to one of the men, a shrewd little fellow, who man aged some of tbe old man's deals for him. After a little while tbe man Goocb, began to talk of my sausage business, praised the Idea and hinted that his boss might consider buying me out "for a proper figure. So we began t. deal, and pretty soon Goocb named a figure, $23,000 or something of tbe sort expecting me to bite. 1 laughed, and Carmichael, who was sit ting by enjoying the fun, said: "He's no kid, Gooch, thougb be looks it Bet ter go your whole figure straight off." Goocb then said $33,000. That was the limit I began to talk about the kosher meat business the Schunemana Bros were handling for me, and -1 could see Gooch's eyes open. He got up and went back into an inner office, and when he returned he made tbe figure $50,000. Carmichael expected me tr take his offer, and if I had been asked that morning I should have said It wa a big price. But suddenly it came Intt. my mind that in that Inner office wa: the great Strauss himself. He thought I was too small fry to dear with, lit left me te his lieutenant And I bat a good mind to bring aim out to bn; my plant of me. So I talked on. an Gooch asked me te name my figure. "Seventy thousand. I pretty quick. Goocb turned to bis desk as if to tel me to go bom. and Carmichael grunted thinking how he would laugh at m about my cheek. I began to think I had gone too far. when tbe door oi tssx 1 Oee naSfeJack and ;;-:tu.. -.. tutu tue room. He nodded to Carmichael and cave me a look from bead to foot, but said noth ing. Goocb waited for the great man to speak. : ' "We'll take your figure, Mr. Harring ton."' Strauss said, after be bad looked me up and down, and walked out again. . It took my breath away. ' The next moment I was sorry 1 hadn't said a hundred. It seemed so easy, but Strauss was back in his office and the door was pulled te. The next I knew I was on tbe street and Big John was laughing so that men turned to look at him. "Pretty good for a kid." be kept saying be tween his bursts of laughter. "You bad tbe old fox on the run. Be wanted your cat's meat place bad. though." We went into a saloon and I set up a bottle of champagne. "You're all right," Carmichael . said to me when we bad drunk to my good luck. "Yen couldn't nave run that place much longer. Tbe big ones would have eaten you up. hide and alL" "I knew tbat!" I said calmly. Carmichael looked at me with con siderable respect and tbat was one of tbe pleasantest moments of my life. (Continued.) 2 PUMPKINS COST A FARMER $2,000 Sold for Fifty Cents, Then Had To Pay the Buyer The Rest. WERE ORDINARY VARIETY MAN WHOSE STORY WAS TOLD TO AT FIRST THOUGHT HIS FRIEND WAS PLAYING HIM FOR A RANK TENDERFOOT. Macon, Mo., Aug. 14. "I saw a couple of pumpkins the other day which the owner said were worth just 2,000," remarked Colonel Lew Chase of Kirksville. "They were ordinary Missouri pump kins, worth apparently, about twenty five cents each, and I believed my friend was playing me for a tender foot But when he got through tell ing me the story I saw that his state ment was founded on facts. "About feurteen years ago Mr. Keith, banker, of Sturgeon, Mo., lent a farmer $1,000 to invest in stock. The investment turned out badly and the farmer had bad luck in other deals un til ho went broke. He just couldn't pay the note. Finally he went out West and there he made a strike. Things began coming his way and he was soon in better circumstances than he had ever been before. Returned Again. "After the lapse of about thirteen years he returned to Sturgeon, bought him a farm and settled down again. The banker again presented his note, which by this time had grown to $2,000, including interest. The farm er gently called the banker's atten tion to the fact that the statute of limitations had run against the note and that it was not collectible by law. "The banker knew that was true. If the borrower didn't want to pay it he couldn't, be made to pay it "One day the banker drove out in the country with a friend and they passed the farm of the man who had taken advantage of the statute of lim itations. The farmer was standing in his field when the two men drove by. The banker spied some large pump kins and asked the farmer what he would take for them. The farmer said twenty-five cents apiece. Took Two Pumpkins. "The banker selected two of the pumpkins and had them put In his buggy. Then he fished around in bra pocket for the fifty cents. "'By George! he said. 'I haven't got a cent with me; what'U I do?' "Oh, you can pay me next time you come along,' said the farmer. " 'No; I wHl just give you credit on that note. "'All right returned the farmer carelessly. "The banker pulled out the note, and In the presence of the borrower and the companion who was riding with him he made an entry crediting fifty cents on the note, and then drove to town. The same day his lawyer began suit against the borrower alleging that a payment had been made and that it brought the obligation again within the law. The banker collected every cent of the debt . No wonder he is saving those pumpkins! TWAS A GLORIOUS VICTORY. There's rejoicing in Fedora, Tenn.

SHED COVERS TWO ACRES AT THIS GREAT PLANT THE FLOR ISTS WILL GROW ONLY AMERI CAN BEAUTY ROSESBUILDING HARD TASK. North Wales, Pa., Aug. 14. Resem bling a railroad train shed more than a greenhouse, a monster structure of glass and iron tubing is being erected here, which, when completed, will cov er an expanse of almost two acres, and will be the largest greenhouse in the world. It will stand beside an other greenhouse of somewhat smaller dimensions, which at present holds the world's record for size among such structures. Both these greenhouses will be devoted solely to growing Am erican beauty roses, one of the costli est of flowers. Impressed by the demand among wealthy society people for roses of the most expensive nature, several New York florists a few years ago began the cultivation of American beauty roses on a fifty-four-acre tract on the western outskirts of North Wales. These roses at the height of tbe social season from Christmas until after Easter, are sold at $6 to S18 a dozen. A, single plant, under the hothouse forcing process, produces about a half dozen first class blooms in a season. David Fuernstenberg. the leading spirit in the North Wales venture, con cluded that instead of following tbe old-time plan of having a number of greenhouses of ordinary size, a great saving in tbe matter of the cost of ma terial and of tbe subsequent heating of tbe building could be effected by erecting one large structure. Feared so Big a Structure. But, owing to the frail character of the construction, builders shook their heads when it was proposed to put up a greenhouse 150 feet broad and almost four times that long. Finally, a daring contractor was induced to undertake the work. So successful was the outcome that the projectors of the enterprise are now about to outrival themselves by building a still greater greenhouse. The one that has been in use for two years is 32 feet high in the center, 150 feet wide, 425 feet long on one side and 575 feet on the other, the irregular shape hav ing been adopted to afford a wide southern exposure. The new structure will be of the same height and width as the older one, but will be 700 feet long. . In the greenhouses there will be space for about 100,000 rose bushes. The present building contains 45,000, arranged on beds or "benchos" as florists call them, which if placed in a continuous row would be t and three-quarter miles long. The life of the forced hothouse rose plant is but a year. Plants are grown from cut tings planted early In the year. By Christmas time they begin to produce magnificent long-stemmed and durable blooms that are the deligh't of the so ciety belle and the devastation of the society youth's pocketbook. The plants grow in great height, and are supported, by being tied to wires stretched through the greenhouse. Building a Hard Task. The task of building the greenhouse is an intricate process. Immense scaffolding, somewhat resembling the seats in a circus tent Is reared, and perched upon this the workmen place the iron framework and tbe panes of glass In position. For the older green house almost 50,000 panes of glass were neeaea, ana live rreignt cars were required to bring tbe glass here. Tbe foundations and sides of the greenhouse are of concrete. Pipes for the water supply and the steam heat ing system form an important part of the plant, for the temperature must be maintained at about 60 degrees all winter, while water is needed for the frequent spraying of tbe plants. For the latter purpose the older green house has 275 spigots. Besides the rose houses, two green- bouses of ordinary size are devoted to growing carnations. As may be imagined from the extent of the es tablishment many gardeners and la borers are employed to care for the flowers.

The policy was issued by the Pru dential Insurance company on the 1 year endowment 5 per guarantee plan, and the premiums were paid for six years during which time the insured borrowed from the company at inter vals the total sum of Sl,o?9. Mr. Reiling recently fell from the third floor of bis place of business In Dayton. Ohio, from the effects of whlrh accident he died.

APPOINTMENT OF CENSUS TAKERS Names of More Than Three Hundred. Washington, Aug. 14. -The names of the more than 30O supervisors of the thirteenth census to be appointed by President Taft will be made public Monday by the president it is until cially learned today. Assistant Secretary McHarge of the department of commerce and labor, and Census Director Durand will go to Beverly, Mass., in a few days it is un derstood to confer with the president about tbe appointments. Throughout most of the country there will be a supervisor for each con gressional district, but in large cities one supervisor will be appointed re gardless of the number of congres sional districts. The president wishes to make as many of these appoint ments now as possible, and a greater portion of them are already practically ready to be passed upon by him. These are in states where tbe supervisors will be named upon recommendation of republican senators and others. In tbe southern states where, it is pro posed to divide the appointments as nearly as possible between democrats and republicans, the appointments probably will be delayed, as recom mendations have not been received and the division has not been made.
