old Germantown Gas company which has charter rights to go Into any of tho streets of Phila- delphIa Wo shall purchase that company wo will put 10000000 now capital Into It and reduce the price of gas In Philadelphia to 00 cents a thousand Whore will you be then Tho face of tho Colossus as ho ut tered this stand and deliver speech was calm and Inscrutable Conscious of the roslstlois power of his untold millions bo felt no more compunction In mercilessly crushing this business rival than ho would In trampling out tho life of a worm Tho little man fac ing him looked haggard and distressed Bo knew well that this was no Idle threat Ho was well aware that Ryder and his associates by the sheer weight of tho enormous wealth they controlled could sell out or destroy any Industrial corporation In tho land It was plainly Illegal but It was done ev ery day and his company was not the first victim nor the last Desperate he GPpealed humbly to the tyrannical money power Dont drive us to tho wall Mr Ry der This forced sale will mean dis aster to us nil Put yourself In our place think what It means to scores of families whose only support Is the Income from their Investment In our companyMr replied Ryder unmoved I never allow sentiment to Interfere with business You have hoard my terms I refuse to argue the matter further Whut Is It to be Five mil lions or competition Decide now or this Interview must end He took out his watch and with his other hand touched a bell Beads of perspiration stood on his visitors fore head In n voice broken with sup pressed emotion he said hoarsely Youre n hard pitiless man John Ryder So lie Ittho millions I dont know what theyll say I dont dare return to them Those are my terms said Ryder coldly The papers he added will bo ready for your signature1 tomorrow at this time and Ill have a check ready for the cntlro amount Good tiny Mr Hngley entered Ryder bowel to Herts who slowly retired When the door had closed on him Ryder went back to his desk a smile of triumph on his face Then ho turned to his secretaryLet eant Hlll on come up he saidA moment later the door opened and Sergeant IClllson entered followed by the secretary who almost Immediately withdrew Well so genet said Mr Ryder cor dially what have you to toll me I can give you pnly n few minutes I expect a lady friend of yours The plutocrat sometimes condescended to beI Jocular with his subordinates A lady friend of mine sir echoed the Tiiau imxxled- Y i MHH Shirley Green the au thor replied the financier enjoying tin detectives embarrassment That suggestion of yours worked out all right Slii8 coming here today Im gladjyouve found her sir It was n tough Job answered Ryder with u grimace We wrote her half a dozen times before she was satisfied with the wording of the Invitation but finally we landed her and I expect her at U oclock Now what about that Rossmore girl Did you go down to Massapequa Yes sir I have been there half a dozen times In fact Ive just come from there Judge Rossmoro Is there nil right but his daughter has left for parts unknown Gone awayl Where exclaimed the financier This was what he dreaded As long as he could keep his eye on the girl there was little danger of Jefferson making a fool of himself with her dis appeared everything was possible- I could not find out sir Their neighbors dont know much about them they say theyre haughty and stuck up The only one I could get anything out of was a parson named Deetle He said It was a sad case that they had reverses and a daughter who was In Paris Yes yes said Ryder impatiently we know all that But wheres the daughter nowY Search me sir I even tried to pump tho slavey Gee what a vixen She almost flew at me She said she didnt know and didnt caro Ryder brought his fist down with force on his desk a trick he had when he wished to emphasize a point Sergeant I dont like tho mysteri ous disappearance of that girl You must find her do you hoar You must find her if it takes all the sleuths in tho country Had my son been seen thereThe parson said ho saw a young tel low answering his description sitting on tho porch of tho Itossmore cottage tho evening before tho girl disappeared

always affected The mouse was in tho den of the lion when he had to announce a visitor of consequence But before he could open his mouth Mr Ryder said Bagloy when did you see my son Jefferson lastr Today sir Ho wanted to seo you to say goodby He said ho would be backRyder gave a sigh of relict and ad I saidI Then turning again to his secretary ho risked Woll Bagley what is it Theres n lady

Bagley reappeared ushering In Shirley Tho mouse was in tho den of the lion CHAPTER XII R RYDER remained at his M desk and did not oven look up when his visitor enter ed He pretended to be busily preoccupied with his papers which was a favorite pose of his when receiving strangers This frigid reception Invariably served Its purpose for It led visitors not to expect more than they got which usually was little enough For several minutes Shirley stood still not knowing whether to advance or to take a scat She gave a little conventional cough and Ryder looked up What he saw so astonished him that he at once took from his mouth the cigar he was smoking and rose from his scat He had expected a gaunt old maid with spectacles and hero was a stylish good looking young woman who could not possibly be over twentyfive There was surely some mistake This slip of a girl could not have written The American Octopus Ho advanced to greet Shirley You wish to seo me madam he asked courteously There were times when even John Burkett Ryder could be polite Yos replied Shirley her voice trembling a little In splto of her efforts to keep cool I am hero by appointment Three oclock Mrs Ryders noto said I am Miss Green You Miss Green echoed the finan dubiouslyYes Miss GreenShirley Green author of The American Octo pus You asked me to call Hero I amFor the first time in his life John Ry dor was nonplused Ho coughed and stammered and looked round for a place whero he could throw his cigar Shirley who enjoyed his embarrassment put him at his ease Oh please go on smoking she said I dont mind it in the least Ryder throw tho cigar into a recepta cle and looked closely at his visitor So you are Shirley Green eh That Is my nom do plumeyes re plied the girl nervously She was al Endorsed By The County The most popular remedy in Otsego County and the best friend to my fatuity writes Wm M Dietz editor of the Otsego Journal Gilbertsville NY is Dr Kings New Discovery It has proved to be

III Guaranteed to never disappoint theI taker by Severs Drug Co Price GOeI and 100 Trial bottle free ready wishing herself back at Massa pequa The financier eyed her for a moment In silence as If trying to gauge the strength of the personality of this audacious young woman who bad dared to criticise his business methods In public print then waving her to a seat near his desk he said I downI Shirley Bho eat down and he took his seat at the other side of the desk which brought them face to face Again Inspecting the girl with a close scrutiny that made her checks burn Ryder said- I rather expected Ho stopped for a moment as If uncertain what to say then he added Youre younger than 1 thought you were Miss Green much youngerTime will remedy that smiled Shir ley Then mischievously she added I rather expected to see Mrs Ryder There was the faintest suspicion of a smile playing around the corners of tho plutocrats mouth as ho picked up a book lying on his desk and replied Yes she wrote you but I wanted to see you about this Shirleys pulse throbbed faster but Bho tried hard to appear unconcerned as she answered Oh my book Have you read it I have replied Ryder slowly and I fixing her with a stare that was begin ning to make her uncomfortable bot wont on No doubt your time Is valuable so Ill como right to the point I want to ask you Miss Green whero you got the character of your central figurethe Octopus as you call him John Broderick From imagination of course an swered Shirley Ryder opened the book and Shirley noticed that there were several pas sages marked Ho turned the leaves over in silence for a minute or two and then he said Youvo sketched a pretty big man heroYes assented Shirley he has big possibilities but I think ho makes very small use of them Ryder appeared not to notice her commentary and still reading the book ho continued On page 22 you call him the worlds greatest Individualized potentiality a giant combination of materiality men tality and money tho greatest exem plar of Individual human will In ex Istence today And you make Indom Itable will and energy the keystone of his marvelous success Am I right He looked at her questioningly QuIte right answered Shirley Ryder proceeded- On page 20 you say the machinery of his money making mind typifies the laws of perpetual unrest It must go on relentlessly resistlessly ruthlessly making money making money and continuing to make money It cannot stop until the machinery crumbles Laying tho book down and turning sharply on Shirley ho asked her bluntly Do you moan to say that I couldnt stop tomorrow If I wanted to She affected to not understand him You she Inquired In a tone of sur prise Well its a natural question stam mered Ryder with a nervous little laugh Every man sees himself in the hero of a novel Just as every wo man sees herself In the heroine We are all heroes and heroines in our own eyes But toll me whats your private opinion of this man You drew the character What do you think of him us a type how would you classify himAs the greatest criminal the world has yet produced replied Shirley without u moments hesitation The financier looked at the girl in unfeigned astonishment Criminal he echoed Yes criminal repeated Shirley de cisively lIe Is avarice egotism and ambition incarnate He loves money because he loves power and ho loves power more than his fellow man Ryder laughed uneasily Decidedly this girl had opinions of her own which she was not backward to express Isnt that rather strong he asked I dont think so replied Shirley Then quickly sho asked But what docs it matter No such man exists No of course not said Ryder and ho relapsed Into silence Yet while ho said nothing the pluto crat was watching his visitor closely from under his thick eyebrows She seemod supremely unconscious of his scrutiny Her aristocratic thoughtful taco gave no sign that any ulterior mo tive had actuated her evidently very hostile attitude against him That he was in her mind when sho drew the character of John BroderIck there was no doubt possible No matter bow she might evade tho identification he was convinced ho was the hero of her book Why had she attacked him so bitterly At first it occurred to him that black mail might bo her object She might be going to ask for money as the price of future silence Yet It needed but a glanco at her refined and modest demeanor to dispel that idea as absurd Then ho remembered too that It was not she who had sought this interview but himself No she was no black mailer Moro probably she was a dreamer one of those meddling sociol ogists who under pretense of bettering tho conditions of the working classes stir up discontent and bitterness of feeling As such she might prove more to be feared than a mere blackmailer whom he could buy off with money Ho knew ho was not popular but he was no worse than the other captains of industry It was a cutthroat game at best Competition was the soul of commercial life and if ho had outwit ted his competitors and made himself richer than all of them ho was not a criminal for that But all these at tacks In newspapers and books did not do him any good One day the people might take these demagogic writings seriously and then there would be the devil to pay He took up tho book again and ran over the pages This certain ly was no ordinary girl Sho know more and had a more direct way of saying things than any woman he had lover met And as he watched her furtively across tho desk he wondered how he could use herhow instead of being his enemy he could make her his friend If bo did not she would go away and write more such books and literature of this kind might become a real peril to his Interests Money could do anything It could secure the serv ices of this woman and prevent her do lug further mischief But how could he employ her Suddenly an Inspira tion came to him For some years he had been collecting material for a his tory of the Empire Trading company She could write It It would practical ly be his own biography Would she undertake It- Embarrassed by the long silence Shirley finally broke In by saying But you didnt ask mo to call merely to find out what I thought of my own work No replied Ryder slowly I want you to do some work forjne Ho opened a drawer at the letthand side of his desk and took out several sheets of foolscap and a number of let ters Shirleys heart beat faster as she caught sight of the letters Were her fathers among them She wondered what kind of work John Burkett Ryder had for her to do and It she would do it whatever It was Some literary work probably compil ing or something of that kind It it was well paid why should she not accept There would be nothing hu miliating In it it would not tie her hands In any way She was a profes sional writer in the market to be em ployed by whoever could pay the price Besides such work might give her better opportunities to secure the letters of which she was in search Gather ing In one pile all the papers bo had removed from tho drawer Mr Ryder saidI want you to put my biography together from this material But first he added taking up The American Octopus I want to know where you got tho details of this mans life Oh for the most partImagination newspapers magazines replied Shir ley carelessly You know the Amer- Ican millionaire is a very overworked topic Just nowand naturally Ive readYes I understand he said but I refer to what you havent readwhat you couldnt have read For example here He turned to a page marked in the book and read aloud As an evi dence of his petty vanity when a youth he had ai beautiful Indian girl tattooed Just above the forearm Ry der leaned eagerly forward as ho asked her searchingly Now who told you that I had my arm tattooed when I was a boy Have you1 laughed Shirley nary ously What a curious coincidence Let me read you another comet dence said Ryder meaningly He turned to another part of the book and rend the same eternal long black cigar always between his lips General Grant smoked too inter rupted Shirley All men who think deeplyI along material lines seem to smokeWell well let that go But how about this He turned back a few pages and read John Broderick had loved when a young man a girl who lived In Vermont but circumstances separated them Ho stopped and stared at Shirley a moment and then he said I loved a girl when I was a lad and she came from Vermont and circumstances separated us That isnt coincidence for presently you make John BroderIck marry a young woman who had money I married a girl with moneyLots of men marry for money re marked Shirley- I said with money not for money retorted Ryder Then turning to the book he said Now this is what I cant understand for no one could have told you this but I myself Lis ten He read aloud With all his physical bravery and personal courage John Broderick was Intensely afraid of death It was on his mind con stantly Who told you that he demanded somewhat roughly I swear Ive never mentioned it to a living soulMost men who amass money aro afraid of death replied Shirley with outward composure for death is about the only thing that can separate them from their money Ryder laughed but it was a hollow mocking laugh neither sincere nor hearty It was a laugh such as the devil may have given when driven out of heaven Youre quite a character He laughed again and Shirley catching the infection laughed too Its me and it isnt me went on Ryder flourishing the book This fellow Broderick is all right hes suc cessful and hes great but I dont like his finish Its logical ventured Shirley Its cruel Insisted Ryder So is tho man who reverses tho divine law and hates his neighbor In stead of loving him retorted Shirley She spoke more boldly beginning to feel more sure of her ground and it amused her to knee in this way with the man of millions So far she thought bo had not got tho best of her Bho was fast becoming used to him and her first feeling of intimidation was passing away Um grunted Ryder Youre a curious girl Upon my word you Inter est mel He took the mass of papers lying at his elbow and pushed them over to herIHere he said I want you to make as clover a book out of this chaos as you did out of your own Imagination Shirley turned the papers over care lesely So you think your life is a good ex ample to follow she asked with a tinge offIrohy Isnt SU ho demanded The girl looked him square In tho faceSuppose she said we all wanted to follow it suppose we all wanted to be the richest the most powerful per onago In tho world Well what then he demanded- I think It would postpone the era of the brotherhood of man indefinitely dont you I never thought of it from that point of view admitted the blllolnalre Really he added youro an extraordinary girl Why you cant bo more than twenty or so Im twentyfour or so smiled Shir Iley Ryders taco expanded In a broad smile Ho admired this girls pluck and ready wit He grow more amlablo and tried to gain her confidence In a coaxing tone bo said Come whero did you get those details Take me Into your confidence- I hove taken you Into my confi dence laughed Shirley pointing at her book It cost you 150 Turning over the papers he had put before her she said presently I dont know about thisYou dont think my Ufo would make good reading ho asked with somo asperityIt she replied slowly aa if unwilling to commit herself as to its commercial or literary value Then she said frankly To tell you the hon est truth I dont consider mere genius In money making Is sufficient provocation for rushing Into print You see unless you como to a bad end it would have no moral Ignoring the not very flattering In sinuation contained In this last speech the plutocrat continued to urge her You can name your own price if you will do the work ho said Two three or even five thousand dollars Itsonly a few months work Five thousand dollars echoed Shirley Thats a lot of money Smiling sho added It appeals to my commercial sense But Im afraid the subject does not arouso my enthusiasm from an artistic standpoint Ryder seemed amused at the idea of any one hesItating to make 5000 Ho knew that writers do not run across such opportunities every day Upon my word he said I dont know why Im so anxious to get you to do the work I suppose its because you dont want to You remind me of my son Ah hes a problemJ Shirley started involuntarily when Ryder mentioned his son But he did not notice It Why is he wild she asked as It only mildly Interested Oh no I wish he were said Ryder Fallen In love with the wrong wo man I suppose she said Something of the sort How did you guess asked Ryder surprised Shirley coughed to meet her embar rassment and replied indifferently- So many boys do that Besides she added with a mischievous twinkle in her eyes I can hardly imagine that any woman would be the right ono unless you selected her yourselfI Ryder made no answer Ho folded his arms and gazed at her Who was this woman who know him so well who could read his inmost thoughts who never made a mistake After a silence he said Do you know you say the strangest thingsTruth is strange replied Shirley carelessly I dont suppose you hear it very often Not In that form admitted Ryder Shirley had taken on to her lap some of tho letters he had passed her and was perusing them one after an otherAll these letters from Washington consulting you on politics and finance they wont Interest the world My secretary picked them out explained Ryder Your artistic sense will tell you what to use Does your son still love this girl InquiredShirleypers Oh no he does not care for her any more answered Ryder hastily Yes he does Ho still loves her said Shirley positively How do you know asked Ryder amazedFrom the way you say he doesnt retorted Shirley Ryder gave his caller a look in which admiration was mingled with astonish mentYou are right again he said The Idiot does love tho girl Bless his hearty said Shirley to her self Aloud she said I hope theyll both outwit you Ryder laughed in spite of himself This young woman certainly interested hadteverknownknownI think I ever met anyone in my life quite like you he said Whats the objection to tho girl demanded Shirley Every objection I dont want hot In my tamllyJAnything against her character To better conceal the keen Interest she took in the personal turn tho con versation had taken Shirley pretended to be more busy than ever with the papers Yesthat is no not that I know of replied Ryder But because a woman has a good character that doesnt necessarily make her a desira ble match docs IU Its a point in her favor isnt IU Yes but He hesitated as If un certain what to say You know men well dont you Mr RyderIve met enough to know them pret ty well ho replied Why dont you trMy worato for a- 1utgeT ehi asked That wonid er j able you to understand a great many things that I dent think are quite clear to you now Ryder laughed good humoredly It was decidedly a novel sensation to have some one lecturing him Im studying you ho saidIbut I dont seem to make much headway A woman like you whose mind isnt polled by the amusement habit has great possibilities great possibilities Do you know youre the first woman I over took into my confidence I mean at sight Again he fixed her with that keen glance which in his business life had taught him how to read men Ho continued Im acting on senti ment something I rarely do but I cant help It I like you upon my soul I do and Im going to introduce you to my wife my son He took the telephone from his desk as if ho were going to use It What a commander in chief you would have madehow natural it la for you to command I exclaimed Shirley In a burst of admiration that was half real half mocking I suppose you always tell people what they are to do and how they are to do it You are a born general You know Ive often thought that Napoleon and Cae sar and Alexander must have been great domestic leaders as well as Im penal rulers Im sure of It now Ryder listened to her In amazement He was not qulto sure If she were making fun of him or not- Well of ot aU ho began then m terruptlng himself ho sold amiably Wont you do me the honor to meet my family Shirley smiled sweetly and bowed Thank you Mr Ryder I will She rose from her seat and leaned over the manuscripts to

why they have not taken a summer outing to the northern seashore or complaining about the intense heat of the southern skies Gardening in town means no little work and more than worry when the gardner

Much For Street Lighting All the evils connected with munlcl palownership have grown out of bun filing municipal operation A carefully wrought out plan with those In charge laeld to responsibility must be devised before municipal operation can be sue coesfully carried on Leaving the matter In the hands of new officials elect ct every year or two wIthout an knowledge of how to carry on th business cannot bo successful except In very rare Instances Take for example the municipal lighting system at Freeport There Is k valuablo franchise which ought tc bring In a fair revenue to the village treasury Some time ago a wealthy lighting company which understand- the e lighting business and can Incandescent light at a small fraction of the cost of generating It at the Free port power house offered to pay 30 000 for the use of this franchise Computed at 0 per cent that meant u rental of 1DOO per year The com pany also offered to light the village with a larger number of arc lamps than are now In operation for 3000 a year Deducting the rental of 1500 from this annual payment the village street lighting on an all night system vould cost the taxpayers 1500 a year But the villagers thought It better to have the system operated by their elected officials none of whom is an expert In lighting matters and we no tice that this year they propose to levy ioiweeH 39000 and

Mayor Shumway of that city brought out some rather startling facts He states that receipts from rentals are 1400 a month and that 1000 a month may fairly be allowed for hydrants yet the operating expenses are 2500 which thus exceed the Income although according to the report there Is no allowance for depre ciation or sinking fund and apparently none for Interest on the 300000 In vestment Even more remarkable is the mayors statement that threequarters of the water pumped Is unaccounted for To quoteFrom this condition of affairs It Is manifest that the amount of water reported pumped Is grossly exaggerated or the leakage unaccounted for de mends prompt and careful Investiga lion To remedy these conditions the may I or makes several recommendations nmong which are the following First I suggest that a careful sur vey of the plant and report of condl tion of same with suggestions for the placing of the plant on a paying and businesslike basis be made SecondThat the water rates be re visedThirdTluit the free list of water takers be suspended lint why should there be nifree list Or Is that supposed to be a necessary incident to political management City Plants Are Inefficient In 1902 the United States department of commerce and labor published a special census report on electric light find power stations compiled by T Commerford Martin editor of the Electrical World and a recognized author ity on the subject A comparison of the statistics of municipal and private plants given In this report demonstrates the fur greater efficiency of the latter as the following table shows Private Munlc Output In kilowatts per wage earner employed nom 9410 Output In kilowatts per 11 of wages 170 138 Average wages per year iGX JC77 Only operative wage earners are con sidered because In a large number of mu nicipal plants all or part of the clerical work Is done by other departments The operative wage earners however perform the same duties In both municipal and private plants On the basis of wage earners em ployed the output of municipal plants is only 72 per cent of that of private plants and in spite of the lower wages paid In municipal plants their output per 1 of wages Is only 81 per cent of that of private plants The chief loser by this relative inefficiency is of course the public that pays the bills Truth Explodes M O Fallacies There Is n curious analogy between certain chemical and economic experl ments If for Instance equal volumes of hydrogen and chlorine are put Into a glass receptacle they will remain a quiet mlxturo of gases so long as they are kept In the dark but as soon ns they are brought into a bright light they explode with violence Similarly the truth and falsehood that are usual ly mixed In about equal proportions In the reports of municipal plants remain quiet as long as tho report is kept InI the dark but as soon as the light of Investigation is turned upon it well there Isnt much loft of the report New Light In Seattle

Post of that city are many It takes more than a common school education to be a success at this job To bo sure at all times and In all circumstances the operator must be the personification of politeness but It is in his acquaintance with the many different officials and with the hundreds of military and naval officers on duty In the big gran ite building that his knowledge Is val uable There Is as much etiquette on one of these cars on a busy day as one would find at one of the big dinners at tho White House across the way where the sitting of the guests around the festive board is one of rule or social priorityThe approach of the secretary of state of war or of the navy In the direction of one of these lifts is signaled by all the messengers or war Itapes alohgJl1e line whiff

admiral or ia general the lever Is reversed Down or up it goes as the Indicator reads the car door Is quick ly and quietly opened and the secre tary Is taken In and carried at once to the floor of his destination for there Is no stopping at the floors to take on or let anybody else off Now comes the time when the keen discretion of the conductorhis re membrance of faces and his knowl edge of ranks of army and navy offi cers and their precedenceIs brought Into play For instance a few months ago on the day of a funeral of a general oil cer the building was alive with officers l In full dress uniform on their way to St Johns church to attend the ceremoniesA of Cavalry from Fort Myer Va having business at the quarter masters department was on the ele vator and was being shot up to the third floor when the sharp ringing of three bells announced the secretary of war at the ground floor Down went the elevator The big secretary and the little major saluted and be fore the salutation was ove r two bells rang meaning that an omcerof high rank wished to ride In a jiffy The secretary of course was It and accordingly was ushered out at the second floor first by all means Then up flew the elevator to the fourth foot to answer the two bells to take on a brigadier general who de- sIred to descend to the street floor More saluting by the major Down shot the elevator The brigadier de parted and the major who had been carried past his destination twice now breathed a sigh of relief but just then two bells an officers call rung again on the second floor and this time the chief of staff with the rank of major general got aboard an1 down the major went again salute and all- After the chief of staff went the ever polite conductor turned to the junior officer and observing his rank and Insignia said Major what floor pleaseThe third please replied the be lated officer but the next time I want it Ill walk This Is a dally occurrence In the big granite building and oftentimes the clerks are carried up and down up and down until every officer Is prop erly disposed of before they can reach their destination TO DINE WELL EAT PEANUTS More Food In Them Than In a Big Porterhouse

the New York World He also explains why nuts seem to upset the digestive organs With the exception perhaps of dried beans and chceso no food material has such a reputation for Indlgestlblllty ho says

he lies In his cradle will cost them 25000 before he has reached the stage of wage earning Independence says the New York Evening Word This revelation was recently made In an address delivered by Professor Brooks at the Chautauqua assembly I have devoted years of considera tlon to this subject having regard to the conditions of modern life the In crease In the cost of living the tenden cy of the average American parent to make an Idol of a beloved son said Professor Brooks and as the result of a careful estimate I am able to say that each child will cost his parents 25000 from the day of his birth until he reaches economic independence- To the unwillingness of parents to assume the burden of Increased cost of training a boy In the way he should go Professor Brooks ascribes the slow decrease In the Infantile population among the middle class I hesitate to revive the question of race suicide said Professor Brooks In another part of his lecture but it Is a dismal fact that the increased expense of bringing up children In cities where the people either choose or are com pelled to live Is largely responsible for the great decrease In the birth rate among the middle classes
