Fellow citizens. we must break the chains which are binding us as slaves to the mon ey power and the trusts.

Notwithstanding this plausi ble thought, Leigh slipped Into the home-bound coach like a thief, taking the corner seat in the rear end ol the car. When Miss Summerfield came in, tue terrible groom to-be, to whom the bridal party had dwindled, even iie, was not In attendance. Marie carried her own grip."' The man felt ti tremor of hope quiver all over hiss, something like an electric current. She look the third seat from the door and leaned her head on her hand wearily. A strange air for a bride, thought the man in the corner. He could not see her face, but some way he felt that this New Year's eve was not what she wished. O, was she in trouble, too? He had halt a mind to go to hei seal directly behind her The interrogation snapped the last thread holding Leigh Keybum's great love in reserve. Marie, darling! Could you did you think O. Heaven! as if I could love anyone but you! O. Marie!" The whiteness of his face was terrible to see; but it all dawned upon her at once. "I I O, Leigh!" she put out both her hands, and two great tears stole down her cheeks to finish the sentence more eloquently than words. When the train stopped at Glad brook, a very happy coup le alighted. And out across the moonlit snow, fiom the bel fry bar of the gray stone church came the merry chime of bells: "Ring out the old, ring In the new; The year is dying; let it ,'(.'' "King in the new," said Leigh, drawing her arm through his. "The years of misunder standing are dead; let them go, dearest." "We will,' she answered, softly and happily. And Joe Antrim laughed in bis sleeve, and said to the bright New Year morning: "T am glad I set those two simple tons right by a bit of strategy. A little prevarication, ahem!
