This is an ap pointment, which would be very grat ifying to the nia ly friends of that gen leuan in thin District, and one in ev ery way honoring and worthy. Jadge Winslow has served two terms as Dis trict Judge, and has the legal training and habits, which would so abundant ly fit him for work on the higher bench. He is well and favorably known to the political and legal circles of lowa, and during the last campaign as in many former ones rendered service to the party for which the Republicans of the Sixth District would be iejoioed to see him deservedly honored. —Col.

Philip thought things were going a little too far, and as ha walked along with hia un desirable host he began to plan escapee. Up on the hill to his left he eould see, new and then, between the houses, his own home and the lights in its window streaming wel come to him. The tense mood relaxod in him, old habits of thought and association made themselves felt again; the poor man walking heavily by his side seemed a thou sand miles removed from him. “Here we are,” said Graves, as he led ths mill owner's son up a couple of rickety look ing stops to a doorway. Philip was not pleased at all; he had seen enough poverty to-night; he did not care to particularize. What was tho use of distressing himself over this (Ban's private miseries and discomforts! Wasn’t it written in all the books of political economy that—but Graves opened the door and waited for his unwilling guest to go in before him. The poor man’s heart was warm in the unwonted exercise of hospitality. With an ungracious frown on his fa#» Philip entered the dimly lighted room, his great boots sounding with startling effect on the bare door. The top heavy kerosene lamp was turned down, but with the heartiness of a true host, Graves turned up the lamp so that Philip could look about him. There was little enough to see—a round pine table with a little blue, cracked crokery on it, a rusty oooking stove, two or three dingy, un pa in tod chairs, a high backed rocking chair, with a faded, shapeless chintz cushion, and what seemed to bo a sofa in one corner. At first Philip thought the room hnd been uaoooupled, but as Graves turned up the lamp a trifle more he saw it was a woman lying upon tho sofa—a woman with sunken black eyes anil wan, oolorless cheeks, whose loosely bound hair, gray before Its time, fell down over her shoulders. “The woman is sick, or she’d get up and speak to you,” said Graves, with a new gen tleness in his voice, as he looked at the wife of his youth. “They say she might get wall if we could pay doctors’ bills. Eh, Jennie?” The girl who stood in the doorway had her mother’s eyes, not quite large enough, but with a rare sheen in them; it might be her mother’s face, too, but with the bloom of perfect health lightening up its olive. Involuntarily he rose to his feet and bowed, but as tbe girl only seemed to regard him as one might look at a circus tumbler, Philip relapsed into his seat, in ths humilia tion beauty can put upon the greatest of us. “Nothin’ but cold potatoes? Well, I guess they’ll do with a little salt and a pieoe of bread.” “Did Curran speak P’ asked tbe girl. “Yes,” answered Philip. “And who is be —A common laborer?” Then he bit his lip. But nobody took offense, no oue suspected their guest of being anything above a com mon laborer. “Only a laborer,” answered Graves, “a weaver, but he’s got some book knowledge somehow. There aint many can beat him at talkin’, is theref’ The girl’s eyes were on Philip now, Impa tient, as he fancied, even for his poor tribute to her lover's praise. “He is wondsrful,” be assented, “but what I don't understand is, that he can be such a man and still a weaver. Where did he learn ttalir “Have you got enough to eat?

Of course he couldn’t stay, but what excuse could he give for coming at all, then! “Be you lookin’ for a jobf” asked Graves, after his daughter had left them. It occurred to Philip that he had one, if he wanted it—to put one spark of happiness Into such lives as these, but he nodded. The man looked him over rather disparagingly. “Well, wash yourself up and black your boots a bit, and I guess I can do somethin’ for yon in the mill. It’s hard work and small pay, but we never had better, you and me. We don’t well know what we miss bein’ poor, we miss it such a big ways.” “How long has Curran lived here!” aske l Philip incoherently. The man stared at him a moment. “Oh! Curran, he ain’t been here more’n a six month. He aint got no folks; he lives down to one of them factory boardin’ houses, but don’t have no friends, or talk about any thin’ but what you heard to-night. But it's all useless." Graves looked gloomily on the floor. “We aint got no show; the rich are too many for us. I guess it’s human nature for one man to boss the crowd, or it wouldn’t a always been so. There’s the girl, she’ll show you where to sleep. Be up early in the mornin’, now." The only course for him seemed to be to follow the girl, and Philip rose to his feet. “Good night,” he said. The sick woman opened her eyes in surprise. Such people as they found no time for amenities in their dreary home. Graves looked around. “What! Oh, yes, goodby, but I’m goin’ to see you in the mornin’.” His bedroom, on which the roof encroached greedily, was newly whitewashed, or else was seldom used. His lamp sat on a wooden chair with no back to it, crowded by a tin wash basin, with his portion of water half filling it, and a round black ball of soap. Then Philip turned to look at the bed they had made for him on a slat bedstead with low headboard but net so low as the thin pillow. How many times must anybody double the pillow to make it fit for his head? For a counterpane was the girl’s plaid shawl; he had seen it on a nail down stairs. Poor little girl, she would want It very early in the morning. Then he glanced in the eight by ten looking glass that hung on the white wall. Disguised! his own father would not have known him, and he had a sensation of double oansoioiisnees as he saw his own re flection. Perhaps Graves was disguised too, and all the ill dressed men he had seen that evening, who suffered as much In their wretched lives as he oould, who oould enjoy all that brightened his own life as much. And clothes made the difference between him and them, apparent ly, perhaps really. The world managed ac cording to the clothes standard—far the man who could borrow a broadcloth suit, com forts, consideration, happiness—for the man in overalls, weary days, cheerless houses, hunger and —bah. Phillip pulled off his great boots and threw them angrily across the room; he did not know what to mata of ►it all ire aid net propoee to spend tne night here, of course, and face the family and his job in the mill in the morning, but he might as well lie down till the house was asleep and escape became possible. But he could not lie down with all his paint on and spoil the poor little pillow. So he takes off his yellow whiskers, and makes such good use of the basin of water and the ball of soap that when he nexS looked in the little mirror he saw no longer the road dusty tramp, but the fresh, kindly faoe of a young man who has never tasted of the bitter foun tains of life. He started as if he had been shot; the windows had no curtains, and any passerby might have seen his transforma tion. Then came a heavy step on the stairs. He blew out the light and buried himself in the bedolothee. In a moment more the door opened and Philip was breathing hoavily. “Asleep?” it was the voice of his hosfi “Well, I s'poss the morning will de. Pretty tired, I gneas; wonder how far he came to day r and Graves closed the door after him and went down stairs again. Of course Philip was not going to sleep, but there would be no harm In just closing his eyes, he oould think so much better. Hsrs ha wm drinking in tha very life of the poor, a strange, tetrible life ha had never really imagined before. Ha had seen how worn and broken ware their men, and read the pathetic line* of despair and sullen wretchedness written on their faces, as if in silent reproach to the providence that had inflicted the unsoftened curse of life on them. He had seen, too, their hapless girlhood, which beauty cannot cheer, which love only makee blacker, as the path of lightning a starless night. And their sick, too, with no nursing, no gentle words, no comforts to as suage one hour of pain. Then he seemed to be in the hall anoe more, and thrilling under the eloquence ef the man Curran. Suddenly he opened his eyee wide. It could not be he was going to sleep, the bed was too hard absurd—there could be no danger. But in fire minutes the heir of the Breton mills was sound asleep in John Graves’ garret room. How long he had slept Philip had no more idea than Rip Van Winkle on a former occa sion ; indeed it took him a ridiculously long time to separate dreams and facts enough to get his bearings. Was that moonlight in the east, or dawn? Perhaps the family were all up and escape would be impossible. He bounded to his feet and clutched at his false whiskers, but alas I his paint was all dis solved in the tin basin. His only chanoe was in getting away unnotioed, and In two min utes more he was groping out of his little room and down the steep stairs, boots in hand. He slowly opened the door into the sitting room. What tf Graves stood within curiously watching. An odd guest, this, stealing out before daybreak. Again Philip wished ho had stayed at home that night. Thank God! no one was in the room. There was the cracked, rusty stove and the sofa the sick woman had lain upon; there was the dish of eold potatoes on the table and the chair he bad sat In while he tried to eat. But somebody must be up In the inner room; a stream of light made a white track through the half open door. Would that bolt never slip—there. It slipped with a vengeance, and Philip drew back into the staircase in mortal terror. The light streak on the floor began to move, and in a moment more a white figure stood on the threshold of the bed room. It was Jane Graves, with her long black hair about ber neck and white night dress, and her eyes glistening brightly. She held the lamp above her head, and let her drapery ding as fondly as It chose about a form that would have charmed a sculptor. As She listened he could me her wavy hair rise and fall over ber beating heart. Would she notice the open stair door and come for ward I What then? He must push her rude ly to one side. He imagined her startled screams and the father's figure hurrying into the scene from another room to seise the in terleper. No, she returns to her room. In another instant he has opened the door and is walking along the street His escape was well timed, to-the gray dawn of another day o l toil and weariness is creeping over the factory village. The bouses were all alike, the front doors Just as soiled, the steps squally worn, the paint the same cheerlsm yellow to a shade. Through the windows of one of them he caught a glimpse of a tall gaunt woman Herald. SI 0,0 0 0.00 His ready imagination pictured the wan fcatured man who must be her husband, out of whose eyes had faded so many years ago the last lingering gleam of tenderness. He imagined their old faced, joyless children be grudged the scant play hours of childhood. Trooping behind them all, he pictured a long lino of special wants and sorrows, the com- It u’as Jane Gravea. panions of their days, the specters of their nights. Their houses looked all alike as he walked along, so their lives might seem just alike at first thought. Ten hours for each in the same mills—who got almost the same pittance for their hot work —and must spend their pennies for almost the same necessities. But infinite must be the diversities of their suffering. CHAPTER IV. CRYINO FOB TUB MOON. Tho strident voices of 400 looms would seem to be too much for human nerves, but the walls of the weave room Number Two of the Breton mills are hung with soiled plaid shawls and chip hats, the livery of the fac tory girL Their restless forms are busy among the rattling machinery, their swift cunning fingers moving harmlessly where mutilation would seem certain. It is a mere matter of habit; one look at most of the set pale faces would show there was no brain farce in exercise. Why, the overseer will toll you those gil ls are as much machines as the frames and belting; though they un doubtedly have one advantage for the em ployers, the girls are cheaper. The wonder ful mechanism of those looms, the skillful system of belts and pulleys and the enor mous water wheel cost a fortune. Girls can be bought in the market any day for a crust of bread. Is not that figure familiar—the one that stands this moment leaning against a dingy white pillar, while the rushing belts and slid ing frames seem hurrying tho faster all about her? Yes, on the piece of wall between the two jail like windows nearest to her hangs the nlaid shawl Philio Breton had for a coun terpane only last night. Her dress is soiled and ill made, and her hair tied up in the closest and ugliest coil to escape the greedy machinery, ever reaching out for new vic tims. But tho warm, soft tint of her cheeks and the moist sheen in her black eyes were always the same, and many a young man would rather look at her this minute than turn off an extra out, they oall it, of cloth at twenty cents. Her days used to be more terrible to her even than now. She had wished every morn ing that she might die before night, and at night that God would take her before morn ing; take her, she cared not where; no place oould be worse, certain. But she was slowly growing, she thought, into the dead calm that all the rest had learned; and yet how she hated the great massive mills, irresistible giants that held her with deathless grasp, grimly contemptuous of her writhings and foolish struggles. The overseers, too, how she hated them; their sharp words stung her like the lash of so many taskmasters, and the paymaster who doled out to her the few dol lars, the wages of her blood and life, as if that could be paid for. She had longed 60 many times to throw back his money in the smiling, patronizing face; but the poor can not afford the dearest of all luxuries, pride. Suddenly the mill bell rang out above the roar of the wheels, and at its voice the looms stopped, the breath of their life taken away, and the belts ceased from their endless race. Another day’s work was closed, and the poor girls hurried on their shawls and hats as if at last something pleasant awaited them and went out in chattering groups. “What is it, Tommie?” A broad shoul dered young fellow had left the crowd and followed her shyly up the hill. “Nothin’ much, only may I walk home with youP “Will that do you any good? Hurry up then." He was an honest faced young fellow, and a little better dressed than most of the group that waited about the mill yard gate. “What you want to walk round here with me for I can’t see. They can't work you very hard, Tommie, if you want so much extra exercise.” It was rather a contemptuous laugh she hau for him, but she showed a row of gmn.l] white teeth that poor Tommie thought were veigr beautiful. “1 wanted to say somethin’ particular, Jennie.” And he reached down his big dingy hand for a stalk of grass, and began pulling it nervously to pieces, as he kept up with her quick feet. They were just passing Mr. EUingsworth’s house, and father and daugh ter stood in the doorway. No doubt Mr. Ellingsworth bad just come home to tea. He held his tall hat in his hand, while he waited with his beautiful daughter to enjoy the soft spring mildness. Jane Graves could see in behind them. How could they bear to stay outsidsf Bhe saw a white spread tea table glis tening with silver and rare china, soft tinted carpets and pictures in rich gilded frames, far prettier, she was sure, than anything nature had to show. The girl’s face, as she stood resting ber white hand on her father’s shoulder, was as calm as the twilight itself. “How has she deserved it all more than II She was never tired in her life, and I never lie down at night but my hands and feet ache. See what she gets for being idle; see what I get for my ten hours’ work, every day since I was a child.” “We’ve known each other pretty long, Jen nie, and—and”—he had pulled the grass all all to pieces—“and I s’pose you know how I’ve —I mean how I’ve felt. lam doing a little better now.” The young man’s eyes bright ened. “I’ve got a little money left me, and you know I’m just made second hand.” “What Is that to me, Tommie f she said, impatiently. Her woman’s soul was longing for the beautiful life of the rich, whose house ■be was passing, and she felt, too, the admir ing glance Mr. Ellingsworth had given to her graceful figure. Why was this awkward boy by her side to spoil the effect? Tommie Bowler winced, but dunking his round head to avoid the sharp look be feared was in the beautiful eyes, he went on dog gedly. “I s’poeed we’d been agoing together quite a while, Jennie, and I was goin’ to ask you when you was willin' to be married." “Married—to your Ah, Tommie Bowler, what wars you think- WORTH OF and TO-VITi LADIES’ OIL GRAIN $1.45 to 1.95. LADIES’ FINE KID & GOAT $1.95, worth 2.50. LADIES’ STRAIGHT GOAT $2.50, Elegant. ! tears of shame started into his eyes. “I aint so low; I never thought but what you would before.” She gave him a look half curious a'id half pitiful. He might as well have cried for the moon. Could it be the lad thought that just because she was pretty she oould make his home happy for him—his? “I’m not going to have a hand at making another poor man’s home. People like us had better be single; there’s only half the trouble that way, Tommie.” The broad shouldered young man, who did | not know what was good for him, fell back from the woman his heart hungered for as if he was shot. And she walked on, with hard ly another thought for the foolish lover who imaginod they two could be happy together. Why couldn’t she be rich? They had al ways told her she was beautiful. If she only had a chance. They say men are fools over pretty women, and that is the only hope a woman has of winning her way. If she only j had a chance. A delicate gray mist floated over the river below the village, and the green forests and fresh meadows on the other side smiled through it, like a fair woman through her tears. A tired soul might have drunk in its beauty and been rested, but Jane Graves cast her eyes down on the dusty road before her and walked along with a set bitter curl on her bright red lips, and did not once look at the gift of God's mercy to the poorest of his creatures. For her part she despised the poor; sho didn’t pity them; great strong men who submitted to be trodden on and ground under the feet of the rich; whose blood and muscles and quivering flesh were weighed in the balance against a few dollars of the spec ulators. It was good enough for them as long as they submitted to It. She didn’t | blame the rich; they were the only wise peo | pie; sho only envied them. They did well to tako all they could get and walk over as many thousands as would fall down before them. Oh, if she could only win her way to their ranks. But the rich men do not come Into the weave room for their enslavers. Suddenly sho heard a step behind her; a step she knew from all others in the world, and the whole air seemed to tremble with a new, strange, heavenly impulse. “Good evening, Jane.” She turned with a new, sweet shyness. It was Curran, the agitator, who was beside her. A soft flush was on her cheeks, a warm light in her eyes that had grown larger for i him in delicious surprise. “Who is that young fellow who just left your “Oh, one of my lovers,” she answered coquettishly, dropping her eyes before his. “He your lover 1” repeated Curran in his imperious fashion. “You’re not for such as ; he, Jennie.” Her heart fluttered in sweet fear at the meaning sho thought in his words. She was trying to walk very slowly, but how fast they seemed to pass the houses. “So I told him,” she said. “You did well, then,” and ho looked down admiringly on the girl “You are a fine wo man. I don’t suppose von know it.” jane uraves triea to iook as ir it was nows to her, and Curran went on. “Few women i are prettier. There are fine prizes for such as ! you in this world if you will only wait.” He continued thoughtfully, “Men have to work for distinction; a pretty face brings it to I women.” “What sort of prizes?” And she trusted | herself to look up at him. How grand he was, with his Arm, strong face. If ho only had a touch of weakness in him that might bend down to hor. “Position, money, power.” “No woman cares for those.” And she be lieved it as she spoke, looking away over the river. “What thenT he asked, smiling. “Those things are what all men are working for, I suppose.” “Women care for but one thing.” Sometimes the climax of a character is reached only in old age, when storms have wreaked their fury for a lifetime on a soul Sometimes it comes in childhood, with three score years of decline to come after it It was at this moment that this girl's life reached its moral height If she could but have kept it “That is love,” she added softly. “It is their lives; they hope only for that; they dream only of it” Curran laughed, but gently, as he took her hands at parting, pressing them perhaps un consciously, yet no man can be wholly care less to such beauty as hers. “It is only because women are more foolish than men, not because they are more de voted, that they are able to make such ab surd mistakes.” She smiled ou him as radiantly as a red petalcd rose unfolding its glowing heart to the morning sun—the sun that gives every thing and wants nothing, and stood half turned watching his retiring form. Tho roai at this point passed near a deserted ruin, once a brick sawmill, which had shorn the hills and valleys around of their pride, now a favorite trysting place for lovers of moon light nights like this would be. Curran was just entering under an arch, where once had swung a heavy oaken door which long ago had served some shivering family for a week’s firewood. He went in and did not once turn. How cruel men are. Perhaps, she told herself, be is to meet there some messenger of the Great league he had told her about, and they will plan together some bold stroke. It was beautiful to have such power, even if it made him forget this one poor girl, whose heart longed so eagerly for another smile. The whole world seemed glorified to the girl as she walked on. She hod loitered so long that the sun was now almost setting, with his flowing robe of carmine about him, and the whole landscape seemed in a rapture of silent worship. Jane Graves was like one in a dream—her home, which she could tell from its cheap dreary counterparts, might have been a palace; the path along in front of it, beaten by so many faltering footsteps, seemed only pleasantly familiar to her. What had she seen to envy in anybody’s life that had not her dear hope! But down the hill comes a great white horse, tossing his mane and curveting in the pride of his strength and beauty. Its rider who held the rein so gracefully must be young Philip, the mill owner’s son; he had just finished college, they said. So that was the young man Bertha Ellingsworth was engaged to; not ill looking, and he rode well The girl smiled to herself. “But Bertha Ellingsworth had not seen Curran.” “Did he lift his hat to . me?” She looked inquiringly about her. “There is no one else, and his block eyes seemed to know me, too; how oddl” thought the girl, as she walked on more hastily, and the horse and its rider disappeared in a cloud of dust “And it seems as if I had seen him some where. too.” CHAPTER V. ▲ ECU* BY MOONLIGHT. Bertha lay back indolently in her favorite armchair, watching the deepening twilight from ber parlor window. Her eyes were al most closed, and Philip, affecting to be inter ested in Mr. EUingsworth’s conversation, thought he might look at her as fondly as he ebo*> without discovery and rebuke.

Bat her lover was no divinity to her; she saw all his faults as clearly as anybody; not with impatience, however; that was not her tem perament. For example, he was too short and his shoulders were too slight She never forgot it for an instant But then he always did what she said, and that was very con venient, and yet she was half provoked with him for it A man ought to command a wo man’s love, not try to coax it from her. He thought quite too much of her for what she returned him; he ought to be stern and cold to her sometimes, and give her a chance to be something besides an ungrateful recipient But per ha;* she would not like him at all in that character. She suddenly opened her eyes wide and looked curiously at her lover; there is nothing so chilling as such a look as that, and Philip winced under it “Well, I suppose you two are bursting with tender confidences,” smiled Mr. Ellingsworth, as he rose to his feet; “I really won’t stay a minute longer.” He moved toward the door, then he smiled and looked around; he had thought of something very funny. “Now Philip, my dear boy, you mustn’t be too sure of her just because she seems so affectionate. That is where a young man makes his worst mistake. As long as there is another man in the world, he may have hope, that is, the other man.” His daughter looked coolly after him. “Must you go? Why we shall die of ennui We shall have to take a walk ourselves. Ex cuse me, Philip, while I get ready." Left alone, the young man rose and went to the window and looked out at the evening sky. There was a little frown on his face. “What an unpleasant way of talking Bertha’s father had. One would think he believed in nothing. There was no danger of his feeling any too sure of her; how far away she seemed to him. The idea of marriage seemed vague and dreamlike, and yet he had her promise." “You may adjust my shawl for me.” His vexation fled, and he smiled with the sweet complacency of possession as he laid the deli cate bit of lace about her warm shoulders. To-night would be a good time to turn his idea into reality, and ask her when “But you must promise me one thing,” she said, standing close to him for one moment. “What is that, Bertha, dear?” he asked with guilty uneasiness. She put her soft white hand in his so charmingly that he was suddenly sure it could be nothing hard she would require. “I promise,” he assented. “No love making in the ruin, if I let you take me there.” “Why, Bertha I” he exclaimed so sorrow fully that he showed his whole plan. The girl laughed. “You are too cunning by half, Mr. Philip, but then you know love making in the saw mill is too common. Why, it is the rendez vous of all tho factory hands. No, I couldn’t think of it for a moment.” “Then I won’t insist on taking you to the old saw mill.” “Oh, yes! it is charming by moonlight." “One would think you hadn’t any heart.” Philip did not confess the peculiar charm this woman’s very coldness had for Am; there was some quality in it that was irre sistibly exciting to his nature. Perhaps it was the presence of an unconscious reserve of passion, never yet revealed, that ho felt in her, that kept his heart ever warm, and his eyes ever tender for its im veiling. The round faced servant girl had come up from the kitchen, and stood awkwardly at the door. “Yes, you may light the gas now, Ann!#; we are going out.” She laid her hand lightly on Philip’s arm as they went down the walk. “I must really have a maid. That Annie is too clumsy for mo to endure in the parlor or dining room. Oh, yes, I probably have got a heart; some time it will frighten you, per haps.” They walked slowly along the street, pass ing the very spot where Tommie Bowler h*A offered his poor little all to Jane Graves only an hour or two ago. Their feet trod care lessly on the bits of grass the nervous lover had scattered along the path. “But you haven’t told mo about the meet ing. Did the agitator have auburn curls, as I said? That is the clearest idea I have got of a hero.” As ho told her his adventure they reached the ruin and went in. The moonlight poured through the dismantled roof, and made a white track for itself over the uneven floor, leaving the rest of the interior in the shadow. Such as remained of the fallen rafters made convenient benches for visitors, who might easily enough imagine themselves In some old world ruin. And the young mill owner’s son and Bertha, the hem of whose garment had never touched poverty, seated themselves where many a penniless young fellow had wooed some pretty weaver maid to share his destitution, all for love—soon starved out of both their lives. Philip felt all his last night’s enthusiasm coming over him again, as ho described the meeting of the hopeless poor and the life of the family that had taken him in. He seemed to be again thrilled with Curran’s eloquence as he pictured his noble presence, and tried to repeat his vivid sentences. Was Bertha listening so patiently to him or only idly watching the shadows as they shifted with the moon? He hoped she was touched. She could help him so much to do something for the thousand souls in the mills if there was anything could be done. And then it seemed so sweet to have an earnest thought and hope in common—one more bond to unite them. “But what can I do, Bertha? It is all so mixed up. Do you suppose my father would listen to me! But if he would, what can I propose? If I tell him tho people are poor and unhappy, he knows all that I can’t ask him to divide all his wealth with them; that wouldn’t last so many very long, and then he couldn’t employ them any more—they would bo spoiled for work, and we would all starve together.” “I wish I could see him,” said the girl ■lowly. He looked at her blankly. “Why?” Suddenly a double tread of feet without, and the forms of two men, one much taller than the other, blocked the doorway. “Hush, then," whispered Philip excitedly. “There he stands." The men came forward till they stood di rectly in the path of the moonlight, which teemed to clothe them with its silver sheen No need to tell her which was he; the girl bent eagerly forward and fixed her eyes on the majestic figure that stood with folded arms. “I am very late,” began the shorter man apologetically. Curran did not reply, and the man went on in a minute more. “What is the news! I want to report your village, you know.” “There is no news. It is the same old story. What is the good of reporting and reporting, and then doing nothing f’ The words escaped between his teeth like the staccato tones of a cornet “I am sick of the word 'wait;' it is the resource of the weak." “But we are weak. Give us time.” Curran unfolded his arms with a gesture of ‘•The injastioe has got its growth; it has on our flesh blood, ltn< i sucked sciences for every crushed soul sacrificed for our delay.” Philip fancied Bertha trembled. “But," began the stranger, in the metallic voice of the objector, “the officers of the league think the laborers are not ready.” “No, nor will they ever be; they have sub mitted too long. But they are always good for action if somebody will lead them. They hang on our lips, but we do not speak.” “Yes, we are spreading intelligence, send ing out orators like you; we are arranging political campaigns. By and by capital will be more reasonable.” “Do you fancy then,” retorted Curran, bit terly, “that the rich will willingly open their coffers to the logical workman, out of whose earnings they have filled them? Isn’t it too delightful to be able to build a palace for a home, aud create another paradise for a gar den; to marry off their sons and daughters when the first coo of love trembles on their young lips? Then will they divide,” and he raised his voice with terrible emphasis, “when there is no escape from it. As long as the people submit, if it be till the trump of doom, so long the lords and masters will de fraud them of the price of their labor; so long their wives and daughters will look down complacently on the sufferings of the million, one of whom starves for every piece of finery they smile to wear.” Philip felt Bertha tromble again, but her eyes never once wavered. “What do you propose?” “I don’t know," muttered Curran, turning his head half away, “but when I see the silent raging in the hearts of the poor, when I see tho riches squeezed out of their scant, ill fed blood, I am mad with impatience. But I suppose all great changes come most benefi cently if they are slow. Then there are no heart sickening reactions. Come out into the open air. It seems close here.” The two men went out aud the indistinct murmur of their voices was all that could be heard. “How do you like my hero?” said Philip, pleased that Bertha should havo a chance to learn from the same source whence he had been so stirred. Now, she could sympathize perfectly with him, in the new idea that he felt must have such a great influence over his life. “He is coming back,” 6he whispered breath lessly, “alono." Curran looked in astonishment at two figures starting toward him out of the sha dows. He recognized them at once. “Well, I hope you may have learned some useful truths,” he said scornfully, looking the young man full in tho face. Bertha's lip quivered, and sho camo close to him in tho moonlight and laid her white hand on his arm. “Wo did not mean to over hear your secrets,” she said earnestly; “but surely it could do no harm to listen to such beautiful words. They seemed to be wasted on the one you meant them for.” “We did not mean to overhear your secrets ." Philip looked at Bertha In startled sur prise; he hardly knew her; then he glanced at Curran, whoso curled lip softened its stem lines. The girl’s bonnet had fallen back on her neck, and her face was turned up toward his in the perfection of graceful entreaty, her big blue eyes showing dark in the evening. The agitator glanced at her sparkling dia monds, and the rich lace shawl that lay over her shoulders, then back into the beautiful upturned face, and at last his eyes fell before here. His boldness was gone; his scorn and contempt for the women of the rich changed to timidity before her. “Don’t distress yourself, my dear lady,” he ■aid at last; “there is no harm done, I am ■urs." As his tense mood relaxed, the charm that had so transformed the girl seemed broken, and sho drew back as if In surprise at finding herself so near him.
