thrower Is killed by his own missile.
Woodman decides to contlnuo his fight
against Blvens.
An Aftermath Confession,
THE day following Blvens' offer
to Stuart vma mado memorablo
by a sinister event In Union
square. A mass meeting of
the unemployed had been called to
protest against their wrongs and par
ticularly to denounce tho men who had
advanced tho prlco of bread by creat
ing a corner in wheat
On his way down town Stuart read
with astonishment that Dr. Woodman
would preside over this gathering. Ho
determined to go. As he hurried through
the routine work of his office, giving
his orders for the day, ho received a
telephone call from Nan, asking him
to decompany her to this meeting.
"I don't think you ought to go," ho
answered emphatically. "There might
bo a riot"
' "I'm not afraid."
"And you might hoar some very
plain talk about your husband."
"That's exactly why 1 wish to go!
I'll send ono of my cars to tho office
for you Immediately."
An hour later when Stuart, seated
by Nan's side, reached Union square,
tho nutomobllo was stopped by the po
lice and turned into Seventeenth street.
Every inch of space in tho squaro
seemed blocked by a solid mass of mo
tionless humanity. Stuart left tho car
in Seventeenth street and succeeded
finally in forcing a way through tho
browd to a position within a hundred
reet of tho rudo platform that had
I been erected for tho orators. Tho
sceno about tho stand bristled with po-
Besides tho spoclal detail of picked
men who moved about tho stand, oc
casionally clubbing an inoffonsivo man,
a battalion of 800 reserves was drawn
lup In serried llnea about a hundred
(yards to tho north on tho odgo of
IFourth avenue. Botwoen these re
serves and the crowd about tho stand
Im open space was kept clear for their
possible assault in case of any dls
When tho speaking began Stuart
pressed his way as cloeo as possible,
brewing Nan with him. Ho was as
tonished at tho genuine eloquence aud
hower with which tho first speaker,
bvldently of anarchistic leanings, de
veloped his theme, a passionate plea
For freedom and tho highest develop
Inent of tho Individual man. His con'
rludlng sentences roused his crowd to
. pitch of wild enthusiasm.
"In tho old world, from which your
I others and mothers fled in search of
reedom, men enslaved their fellow
jen by becoming Jprda, dukes or
Thomas Dixon
Kings, murdt'tiiigyrTjorSiiunTg their way
to a castlo or n throne. The meth
ods of your modern masters are more
subtle and successful. You vote to
make them your masters, and still
Imagine that you are free."
A cheer like tho roar of an angry sea
swept tho crowd. Again and again it
rose nnd fell. Increasing in volume as
Its contagious spirit set Are to tho rest
less minds of the thousands who had
packed tho square, but could not hear
the man who was voicing their faith.
In tho deep roar of their cheers there
was no sodden despair. As Stuart
looked Into tho faces of tho crowd he
saw no trace of tho degeneracy and loss
of elemental manhood which make
tho sight of a European mob loath
some and hopeless. These men were
Btlll men, tho might of freemen in their
souls and good right arms.
When tho last echoes of tho cheers
had died away thore was a stir near
tho stand and Stuart saw tho stalwart
figure of Dr. Woodman suddenly rise.
DTo lifted his arm over the crowd, de
manding silence.
The doctor plunged at once into the
message with which his heart was
"Let no man tell you, my, friends,
that tho God of our fathers Is a myth.
You can't lose faith in God because
you have not lost faith In eternal jus
tice. This faith Is Just coming Into
conscious existence in tho henrts of
millions. By this sign we know that a
now ago Is born. Poets and artists no
longer gazo Into heaven. Their eyes
nro fixed on earth. Men have ceased
to long for another world, therefore
their hope Is now for this ono. To bring
justice and beauty to pass on this
earth In wisdom and -fearlessness of
death this Is tho new creed of the
"My friends, tho worklngman of to
day lives better than tho kings of tho
middle ages. Havo patience, my
friends, the worklngman of tomorrow
will be the heir of all tho knowledge,
of all the pain and all tho glory of tho
centuries. Wo should not bo so im
patlent,wc should not bo discouraged.
The progress of tho world has really
just begun. And so I, who watch tho
darkness pass and seo the eastern sky
begin to glow I cry to you who may
still bo below: 'Bo of good cheer, tho
day dawns!' "
A feeble cheer rose from the hun
dred or more who know tho doctor
personally. It was tho only response
tho sullen crowd gavo to his burst of
fooling. They were not in sympathy
with his optimism. Tho anguish of
tho present momont of bread hunger
and 'cold was too kocn.
When tho doctor sat down Stuart
saw Harriot suddenly lean over, draw
his big shaggy bead down and kiss
him. DTo hadn't recognized her before.
The next speaker mado bis attack on
tho corruption and graft of our system
of government with brutal frankness.
He assailed tho foundations of tho re
public, and at last the principles which
underlie civilized society Itself. Un
doubtedly ho was a madman, driven
Insane by the flerco strugglo for bread,
but none tho less a dangerous maniac.
With scathing, bitter wit ho flayed tho
corruption of our system of democracy.
The speaker closed his tirade with
a flerco personal attack on the man
iwho had mado five millions In a corner
on bread and flaunted his ill gotten
gains In tho face of starving men and
Nan's face flashed with sudden rage.
"Tako mo to my car, Jim. I've an
idea I'm going to execute it at once."
"Wouldn't you l!ko to meet tho doc
tor and his daughter before you go?"
"Thanks, nardly. You know ho Is
on Mr. Blvens' black list."
"I'd forgotten that," ho answered
regretfully. "I'd like awfully for you
vu meet Harriot. I'm sure juiiKI mii
Nan smiled.
"I could soe sho likes you, I don't
think she took a fancy to me, how
over." "Nonsense, Nan," ho said, with an-
Boyance. "Sho couldn't have seen you.
I didn't know sho was hero until sho
kissed her father."
"Perhaps my eyes are keener than
Tho captain of tho district brushed
rudely post and sprang Into his au
tomobile. Ho waved his hand to his
chauffeur. His gesture was mistaken
by a pair of kocn, restless eyes for a
command to his reserves to disperse
tho crowd.
A pale, shabby young fellow leaped
past the lino of police into tho open
epaco and rushed straight for tho re
serves. His loos, thin arm was lifted

A murmur rippled through tho crowd,
the police stood still and stared, and tho
next moment tho bomb exploded In
tho boy's hand, and his body lay on
the stones a mangled heap of torn
flesh nnd blood so&Ked rags.
The police charged tho crowd and
clubbed them without mercy. Tho
poople fled in confusion in every di
rection, and "in five mlnuteB the squaro
was cleared.
Stuart had hurried Nan to her cor
and rushed back to the eceno of tho
tragedy, no readily passed tho lines
of tho police, who recognized him as
the district attorney.
The doctor reached the spot and
Harriet was holding tho dying boy's
head In her lap.
Stunrt bent over her curiously and
Blowly nsked:
"You wore not afraid to rush up hero
with your father and tako that poor
mangled thing in your arms?"
"Of course not," sho replied simply.
"Papa says ho's dying nothing can
be dono for him. They'vo sent for an
Tho doctor pressed Stuart's arm
and spoke in low tones:
"I've mado some big mistakes in
my life, boy. I'm just beginning to
see them. I've read a new message
In tho flutter of this poor fellow's
pulse. I'll not' bo slow to heed It."
When the doctor reached horaothofaco
of the dying boy haunted him. Ho be
gan to fear his strugglo with Blvens In
his long drawn and fiercely contested
lawsuit was an act of the samo es
sential quality of blind physical vio
lence. He began to seo that tho real
motive back of his struggle was hatred
of the man this little counter jumper
who had destroyed his business. It
was the irony of such a fato that sank
Its poisoned dagger Into his heart. Ho
faced the fact at last without flinching.
Ho rose and paced tho floor of his
library for a half hour with measured
tread. He stopped suddenly and
clinched his big fists instinctively.
"I. do hate him with undying,
everlasting hatred, and I pray God
to give me greater strength to hate
him more!"
Ho rose with sudden determination.
He would not surrender. He would
light It out with this little swarthy
scoundrel, win or loso. His house was
mortgaged; tho last dollar of his sav
ings ho had spent In helping others.
and the money set nsldo to flnlsh
Harriet's course In music had been
lost In tho panic, no would light It
out somehow nnd win. But tho ono
thing that must not fall was tho per

of appeals would eortalnly render its
decision beforo her next term's work
would begin. Sho could rest during
tho summer. It would do her good.
If ho could be Arm with his tenants
and collect his room rents promptly
from every one, tho income from his
house was still sufficient to pay tho
interest on tho mortgago and glvo him
a little to cat. It would bo enough.
Food for tho soul was more Import
gnt no resolved to ask Stuart to
collect his rents.
He looked up and Harriet stood at
his side.
"What havo you been crying about?"
bo asked anxiously.
"Oh, nothing much," was tho low
answer. "I really don't know per
haps tho thing that makes tho birds
out thoro in tho square chirp while
tho snow is still on tho ground, tho
reeling that spring Is corning."
"You'ro keeping something from me,
dearest," he whispered, slipping his
arm about her waist "Tell mo."
"You really believe In my voice, don't

"Bellovo In it? Do I believe In
"Could I go abroad right away nnd
finish my work there?"
Sho nsked tho question with such
painful intensity, tho father looked up
with a start
"Why do you wish to go now, child?"
bo asked.
"I've a confession to make, papa,
dear. I'm In love, desperately and
A sob caught her voice, and the
father's nrms drew her to his heart
and bold her.
"But why hopelessly, ray baby?" ho
asked. "Your hair is beaten gold, your
eyes are deep and true, your slender
llttio form has all tho symmetry and
beauty of a. sylph. You aro youns.

"But the man I lovo doesn't realize
all that yet papa, dear. Ho is bound
by tho memories of tho past to a wom

evil at heart and though sho betrayed

sho shall not. I'll light for himl And
you'll help mo, papa, won't you?"
Tho father drew her close.
"Won't I Just wait and soe! But
you haven't told mo his namo? J'vo

"You've never guessed?"
Sho lifted her face to his in surprise.

"Our Jim Stuart?"
She nodded. Her voice wouldn't

"The first lovo of a child's heart grown

Again tho little head nodded.
"You understand now why I wish to

I'll bo nearer to him with tho ocean

if I stay hero and see him dangling at
that woman's heols. I shall shag when
he hears mo as I never sang before,
and I shall say to him then all tho un

Tho father kissed the trembling Hps
and answered firmly:
