- 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.

d'Azyr said of him that he had
too dangerous a gift of eloquence.
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.

Andre-Louis rode forth from Rennes
committed to a deeper adventure
than he had dreamed of when
lie left the-sleepy village of-Gavrillac.
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.
"Let us all swear," he cried in a y
great voice, "to raise up in the ,
name of humanity and of liberty a i j
rampart against our enemies, to op- j
