- He was speaking In the cause of
the people because of the oath taken as he held In his arms the - body of his dearest friend, A,, PHILIPPE EE VILMORIN, a dlStudent ''who had been r I tricked into a duel and then : killed because he possessed a "dangerous gift of eloquence." w?-'l The player was the powerful MARQUIS DE LA TOUR D'AZYR. Not only had the .Marquis murdered Andre-Louis' dearest friend but the profligate noble was suing for the hand of the beautiful ALINE DE KERCADIOU, niece of QUENTIN DE KERCALIOU. who is popularly believed to be the father of Andre-Louis Au (IreLouis decided to place the case 3\' before the throng of citizens already angered by the refusal of ' the nobles to follow the royal order and dissolve the Estates. GO ON WITH THE STORY. ifk, Instantlj^fhere was turmoil in ; . the crowd, most intense about the spot whence the shot had been fired. The assailant was one of a considerable group of the opposition, a group that found itself at once beset on every side, and hard fe;- ;7 p.ut to defend him. Prom the foot of the plinth rang the voice of the students making chorus to Le Chapelier, who was bidding Andre-Louis to seek sheli^Jy , "Come down' Come down at once! They'll murder you as they , murdered La Riviere." |&\ , ? ' "Let them!" he flung wide his arms in a gesture supremely theat" tlcal, and laughed. "I stand here at their mercy. Let them, if they will, add mine to the blood that will presently rise up to. choke them. Let them.' assassinate me. Tt is a trade they understand. But until they do so, , they shall not IpF- ' prevent me from speaking to you, from telling you what is to be'look p And presently, when some J measure of order was restored, he began his tale. In simple languj age now, he tore their hearts with; the story of yesterday's happen-; mmi4 Ings at Gavrillac.

It was to silence his bfave voice that he killed him. But he has failed of his object. For, I poor Philippe de Vilmorin's friend, have assumed the mantle of his apostleship, and I speak to you with his voice today." It was a statement that helped Le Chapelier at last to understand, at least in part, this bewildering change in Andre-Louis, which rendered him faithless to the side that employed him. And now In a terrible voice, with an eloquence that amazed himself, he denounced the inertia of royal justice whfere the great are the offenders. It was with bitter sarcasm that he spoke of their King's Lieutenant, M. de Lesdiguieres. Again a great roax-. He had wrought them up to a pitch of dangerous passion, and they were ripe for any violence to which he urged tliem. If he had failed with the windmill, at least he was now master of the wind. "To the Palais!" they shouted, waving their hands, brandishing canes, and?here and there?even a sword. "To the Palais! Down with nr. de Lesdiguieres! Death to the King's Lieutenant!" "Ah, wait!" he bade them. "Is f-TiJa mioorfihlo inqtriim ATlf of fl corrupt system worth the attention of your noble indignation? Precipitancy will spoil everything. Above all, my children, no vlollencei" My children! Could his godfather have heard him!! Out of the silence into which they had fallen anew broke now the cry of "What else, then? What else?" "I will tell you." he answered tliem. "The wealth and strength of Brittany lies in Nantes. She has the power to make her will prevail, as we have seen already. Let her exert that power once more, and until she does so. do you keep the peace in Reunes." A dozen .students caught him as he leapt down, and swung him to their-shoulders, where again he came within view of all the | acclaiming crowd. I They carried liiin out of the | square and up the Rue Royale to an old house where behind closed doors a flushed and excited group ; ! of some fifty men hailed Andre-1 Louis as the strayed sheep who, had returned to the fold. .

Lying the night at a roadside ' Inn, and setting out again early In the morning,' he came on his errand of sedition into that beautiful ; city o? Nantes. It was striking two, the busiest hour of the day upon the Bourse. [ when Andre-Louis reachecfs the | Place du Commerce. |;| Soon 'the president came, others ! ! following, crowding out into the ' ! portico, jostling one another In : [their eagerness to hear.the news. ' [ "Tell me, sir, is it true that the j King has dissolved the States?" j "Summon the gentlemen of your j Chamber, monsieur," saia annicLouis, "and you shall hear alL" "So be it." \ A word, and forth they came to f crowd upon the steps, but leaving | clear the topmost step and a half- i moon space in the middle. "People of this great city of j Nantes, I have come to summon j you to arms! "I am a delegate of the people of Rennes, charged to announce to you what is taking place, and to invite you in this dreadful hour of our country's peril to rise and march to her defense." "Name! Your name!" a voice shouted, and instantly the cry was taken up by others, until the multitude rang with the question. j "My name," said he, "is Omnes,i Omnibus?a.11 for all. I am a herald j a mouthpiece, a voice; no more. I ; come to anounce to you that since j the privileged orders, asembled for j the States of Srittany in Rennes, resisted your will?our will?des- ij pite the King's plain hint to them,!! His Majesty has dissolvod the,] State." There was-a burst of delirious ; applause. Gradually silence was restored and at last Andre-Louis was able to proceed. "You rejoice too soon. Unfortu-1 nately, the nobles, in their insolent arrogance, have elected to ignore j the royal dissolution, and in despite of it persist in sitting and in con-, [ducting matters as seem good to! j them. "This is no new thing. Always, j has it been the same. They have! j flouted the authority of the King, i j and'they are silencing by assassina-] tion those who raise their voices | to condemn them. Yesterday in : , Rennes, two young men who ad! dressed the pople as I am address- i j ing you were done to death in the , ! streets by assassins at the instigation of the nobility. Their blood cries out for vengeance." [ Acclamations broke out ifnstint| edly now. He had caught them in the snare of his oratory. And he pressed his advantage instantly.
