He was relieved to note that John
could laugh. "And here," he grinned.

and still be useful—must be as stern
and unyielding as the forces of nature,
and as strong."
"And 1 am not that." But the bit

"No man is," Murchell said gently.

of the campaign and the convention.
The shuffling of feet In the outer
room gave John the excuse to leave.
He was heaid dismissing the visitor.
But many minutes flew by before be
It was little enough time for what be
had to decide.
A marvel had been wrought. To
Murchell had been given a new pur
pose. But Murchell, the workman,
could never change he was too old.
His lack of respect for the people and
popular impulse, the habit of judging
means by the end, fixed through a
lifetime, would persist. And be was
the stronger man, his the greater gen
ins. The instinct for mastery must
be served. Who joined him did so as
a follower, to be dominated by the
leader's ideal and philosophy.
"If only I could answer him!" John
cried within himself.
But his experience, silencing mspira
tlon, had not taught him that answer.
There was but one way for him to
decide. The trap of circumstance,
sprung by his own weakuess, held him
fast Having accepted advancement
at the bauds of that which he believed
to bo wrong, he might no longer open
ly light against it. As an enemy to
the machine, whose beneficiary he bad
become, he would be discredited, un
convincing. His only hope for useful
ness lay In the proffered alliance, in
MurcbelPs new purpose.
For a little Haig sat In the unwonted
silence of embarrassment. Then he
