of the floor and loaded a 32 Smith Wesson revolver after which he went into an adjoIning room where it is said he found young Sallee sitting on the side of the bed talking to Mrs Phillips The scene whichT met his eyes so enraged him that he leveled the revolver and fired at his wife three times all of the shots taking effect One ball entered the left breast and passed through the heart another the right breast above the nipple and the other penetrated the stomach After making sure of the death of his wife Phillips turned the weapon upon Sallee and shot him as he was makinghis exit through

in New York while four succeSs j ful companies were presenting it to the country at large The phenomenal auk cess of the play was due in part per haps to the fact that in the character t of John Burkett Ryden Mr Klein baser daringly dramatized one of the most widely known and deeply anathematized billionaires of theage Thesubject of the story and its briHiant treatment make it one of the most interesting to the general public as well as lovers of ford + a serial publication The serial is a stark tingly realistic story of American life of the present timethrobbingwith thenrmost important

some college boys was ask ed of one well to do wbejat raIserIHe laughed Well Not if they are like those I had last summer Wouldnt they work Yes they worked pretty well but they did so many things besides One of the first things they did was to organize a baseball team among the men and challenge the workers over on tbe next farm That meant that we had to givPthem a lay oft one whole after noon Then they Invited all the girls In the neighborhood to a dance In my big barn without asking niy permis sion and I had to take a lay to fix for that It wits too Dlucht But you got your wheat up After awhile I wouldn t have though If I hadnt thought of a scheme Those boys were so Interested In baseball that they demanded n horse to send one of the bunch to town every night to get tn scores made during the day That cos me the use of the ani mal the next day and It made the boys nervbuj for they wouldnt sro to bPd until the messenger came back about midnight Of course they could not do very much the next getting up at 4 oclock as they had to do Well I went to Hutclllnsou where they have a newspaper and there Jmnde arrangements to have the baseball news telephoned to my farm every afternoon I ran an extra line from the house tQ the wheat field and put up n big bulletin board that could be rend half a mile away Then I had my sixteenyearold girl take the mes sages and chalk them on the board The reapers could see the board every time they came around to that side of the field and they fairly ran the teams to death trying to get there fast That hoard was u wonderful help and it kept the boys on the farm too The college yell has not made much prOgrewi hi the wheat belt The high schools are catching on but they do not have the real thing yet So when a dozen Justy jLoung men gather under the wfad of the farmers house and shout Bubble bubble new wheat stubble We are out In search for trouble Kansas Kansas Is not heaveni Harvesters of nineteen seven the farmer and his wife are likely to tell them to shut up The variety of yells that have been perpetrated by the college boys at the expense of the Kansas wheat harvest doubtless fins hurried gray hairs Into the beads of some of the grain producers No won der they do not petition for a crew of college boys A few of em Is right explained one farmer but n you get a bunch together they are to fswift for me However the e boys bring a lot of brightness into the west They leave behind them string of good storing and the of the latest songs They teach young folks everything thats going and the neighbor hood Is brightened for a long time Some of the western girls are about as smart as the college boys land they know how to work the harvesters as well as any one In Saline county at the last election a young woman ran for the office of superintendent of schools She had a hard Ught and she knew It So she took a horse and bug gy and went across country eltfctjon eerlng One day Just before noon Ihe drew up to a wheat field where twenty then were harvesting She was the center of interest at once and the men gathered around here 1 want till you men to vote for me she began t What are you goln to do for 1s1 called

if you want us to vote for you cook us a womans meal Ill do IL Wheres your cook shack she declared and alighted from her buggy She prepared a hearty well cooked meal for the harvest crew and when she

harvest beltThl wheat ripens so fast over so large a territory that the farmers are not ahle to care for It without a lot of outside assistance Take some of the western counties They have only 2000 population but they raise half a million bushels of wheat How can they gather It unless there are vAitslde workers willing to help In the harvest They are now calling for belp though the crop tjils

had while there In police court the next morning Judge Thomas separated them each from 15 and the costs They did not have the where ndLthefinewere dismissed Owing to the scarcity of wet goods in these

pocket and a bottle of beer iri the other and no telling how much else he had that he did not carry in his pockets At any rate the load he had on the inside together with that on the outside was too much for George and he succumbed Chief Brown picked him up and Saturday morning Judge Thomas relieved him ot 400 The fine was paid and Jack was discharged Chick Weathers is a bold bad negro and especially is this true when he is loaded With Springfield booze Tuesday he hired a horse and buggy from the livery firm of J W Crume Bro aria drove over to the capitol of Washington county There he tarried just long enough to take on a beautiful jag and when he struck Lebanon again he had forgotten that a horse like any other animal had feelings At least he was cruelly handling the animal ana when he drove up tc a place on Water street Mr John Cr me who had seen some of the negro maneuvers went immediately to get the rig Weathers became angered and grabbing the whip struck viciously at the liveryman but the blows were warded oil Unfortunately Mr Grume did not have a gun nor was therq a stick of stove wood insight and the negro ran away Soon afterwards Chief Brown had him in custody and

New York Her al ifectness and thoroughness won him the esteem of the foreign diplomats at Washington and of the Amer lean statesmen and politicians as fief when hA served as private secretary to Walter Q Gresham secretary state in tho cabinet of President Cleveland It is related that upon one occasion Mr Landis acting for Mr Gresham clashed with the wlsbes of Mr Oleve land and the president sought his removal But so attached had Secretary Gresham become to the young roan that he stood up loyally for his suboj dlnate and when Mr Cleveland found that to take Landis scalp he would have to take Greshams also he ac quiesced in the situation Later La disf and the president became strongly attached to each other and when they partefl 3Ir Cleveland assured Landis he could have a high diplomatic post The Venezuelan ministry was open at the time but Lnndis declined toac w cept any office saying be wished to come to Chicago and practice law Every day I put It off will be a day lost

well grounded In the law Indefatigable not to be swerved from a purpose once fixed such is the judge who told John S Miller an attorney of Immunity bath fame that he must produce certain evidence in order that Judge Landis might know What sums would consti ute just and equitable fines in the case wherein the Standard Oil Company of- tIndiana had been found guilty by a In a federal court This jury had found the company in a question liable to a fine for having accepted concessions from the Chicago and Alton railway upon no less than 1400 counts the fine In each of whrch may range from 1000 to 20000 ThfT government contention has been that the Standard Oil Company of Indiana was in reality a brunch agency of tbe Standard Oil trust this concern hav ing been thejiredecessor of the present

to bring him here He is an old man He is quite wealthy He has a great many financial hold and it will be n hardship and dif for him to come here Fatal mistake and puerile argument or an old fox like John Miller to plead before Landis 15 This court makes no distinction so far as Its process goes against either wealthy or a poor man said Lan is simply coldly slowly It Is In conceivable that a

Ontario experimental farm some tests of the value of skim milk whey etc as an addition to grains for ttcnjng poultry have been conducted From a summary of dKra on the relative value Of whey skim milk and numerous feeds for fat tening chickens it appears that gain was most cheaply made on a mixture of equal parts of cornmeal oatmeal and shorts mixed with whey the cost being 4 cents per pound ohd

not so high a feeding value for grown chick ens as sour mill and that whey Is a better food Is generally considered It seems to aid digestion Testing Bulls With Autos That the automobile cnbel Used with great success in determining the courage of young bulls lutenled for the bull ring has been demonstrated by Pedro Fernando Somellera on his San Isidro hacienda In Guadalajara Mexico The novel experiment was made a few days ago with a twenty two horsepower car writes a Guadalajara correspondent of the Mexican Herald On nIl haciendas where flighting bulls are raised the young nn finis are test ed with a view to determining their future fitness for the bull ring Those that prove their courage are marked and left to grpup for future contests Up to tests have been conducted bytmen on horseback armed with pikes like picadors But Mr So mellera who Is an enthusiastic motorist this yea decided on an Innovation by Introducing motor cars In place of the horseman Accordingly after the youngHnills had been herded Into a large corral the machine was driven Into the inclosure The occupants were armed with the usual pikes e experiment proved an exciting success Several of the young bulls charged the machine at jnad speed and It was only by clever driving that the car and its occuffnntsj were kept clear of the horns of the surprised and apparently indignant uuimuls The bulls that attempted Io mix with automobile have been credited with exceptional bravery and they are ex pected to bring fame to ihoSan Isidro hacienda by their future performances In the bull ring LiyerjTrouble

State it matters not where his distant lot may fall His mind and heart often turn back toward his homeland and he loves to tell of her genial clime rich resources and noble sons and beautiful

is a source of inspiration to the local cor respondent to know that his letters are appreciated bv his distant friends We- recently heard of some who are not so far away and others who live in a nearby State who are eager to hear from home And still it may be a son or a daughter who has wandered away from the parental roof and left behind them home and friends so dear and in some far western village or on some isolated farm are battling with the stern reali ties of life but the heart and mind are turned back each week toward their native land as they read the local news 5n the home paper

is conducive to health and hap pin ss in warm weather with plenty of fish and a little meat to vary the mel The main thing is to have everything fresh and to maintain a stands d of cleanliness that answers o sanitary requirements KEEPING OFFOODS With regard to thi keeping of foods the best advice is Dont keep them if you can help it Buy in the smallest possible quantitie and renew the supplies frequently being careful that whatever food sstored in safe or ice chestis absolutely clean before it is put away A small quantity of citritr acid which his t same as the acid in a lemon addecf to the water in which fruits or salads are rinsed is a safe guard against any germs that may have lodged on them I THE CARE OF MILK Milk which is an essential part of the diet of people of all ages and the main dependence of babies young chil aren rand old people is the food that needs mostcareful watching to prevent deterioration rhe housewife should take extra precautions to insure the safety of her family in the use of this necessary household supply which too often becomes a vehicle to communi catecontagion Unless one can be sure of the sources from which it is obtain ed and unless it can be delivered in air tight sealed bottles it is wiser to use high grade prepared milk whose purity is undeniable THE BABIES DIET Milk in this form is conceded to be thebest for babies and young children ands generally usedin childrens hos pitals and in daily nurseries It is the staple food among Hebrew mothers in this fcityand notwithstanding the crowded and generallyunsanitary con dition that prevails among these poorerjpeople the death rate among babiesis exceptionably lowAtA GENERALSCHEDULEi No hard and fast rule can be given as to the exact quantity of food required by each individual

mother heard the screams of the child and ran to see what was the matter and was horrified to see the childs face and head literal ly sered with bees After quite a battle the mother rescued the child but was stung several times The child suffered great agony and had to be put under the influence of an opiate before any relief could be had Physicians claim the child was stung over 100 times It is thought it will recover t Enforcement of The Law Gov Beckham has given his party new hold on the confidence of the people He seized the physiological moment to stand regardless of conse quences for

attended the soldiers reunion at Spot Saturday I wish to express a few words for the benefit of the young mon of this community and for the benefit of young men in other communities who indulge in carrying concealed weapons No brave man will carry a concealed weapon Pistol carrying is indulged in only by cowards Many a man loses his life by carrying a pistol He would not be so ready to corisidsfarything as an insult if he dirt not have a pistol concealed on his person This reliance on a concealed deadly weapon leads him to rush into difficulties s and difficul ties in which he loses his life Carry ing concealed deadly weapons should be discouraged everywhere Parents should teach their boys that such conduct is dishonorable and dangerous All young men should be impressed with theitruth that it is not manly but cowardly to carry concealed weapons Talk PolitiCs Dont pay any attention to those pinheads who give you free advice about not talking politics The reason we dont have better lawmakers and better men to enforce the laws thy make is that you dont pay enough attention to politics Discuss the issues and the men You dont have to neglect your crops to talk politics It sounds smart to say that you are rais ing too much hell and too little corn and cotton but the fact is you arent raising hell enough You elect state and county officers only once jn four years and you can afford to get out and look them over and find out which ones will fun the state and county best Dont your crops suffer but get out and decide for yourself who is doing the windjamming and who

Life Novelized From ARTHUR HORNBLOtf jl COPYRIGHT 1906 BY G W DILLINGHAM CO1 Ji NY The Lion and the Mouse novelized from Charles Kleins great play is an American story of the hour dealing with the billionaire Its leading charac ter is the richest man in the world In the thinly veiled John Ryder the reader will immedi ately recognize another John of worldwide fame John Ryders 1xnscrupulous methods are resealed in the conspiracy to ruin an incorruptible judge who rules adversely to the interests of organized capitol The judges daughter determines to save him Her heroic struggles in conflict with the money octopus make a- fatory of absorbing interest and great dramatic power In his t willingness to renounce his fathers fortune for the girl of his choice Ryders son displays a nobility which wins the readers warmest admiration t CHAPTEJL THERE was unwonted bustle In I usually sleepy and digni New York offices of the and Transcontinental Railroad company in lower Broadway It was the regular quarterly mee Ing of the directors of the Southern nnd Transcontinental Railroad compa ny but it was something more than mere routine that had called out a quorum of such strength and which t made todays gathering one of extraor dinary importance In the history oil the road That the business on hand was of the greatest significance was easily to be Inferred from the con t cerned and anxious expression on the f directors sand the eagerness of the employees as they pIled each other With questions Suppose the injunction Is sustain ed 1 asked a clerk in a whisper Ifnot the road rich enough to bear the loss 1 The man he addressed turned impa tiently to the questioner Thats all you know about railroad lug Dont you understand that this suit we have lost will be the entering wedge for hundreds of others l The- veryif existence of the road may be at stake And between you and me he Judgeimuch show Its Judge Ros more that scares em not the injunction Theyve found it easy to corrupt most of the supreme court judges but Judge Ross Yourcould no more bribe him than you could have bribed Abraham Lincoln But the newspapers say that he too has peen caught accepting 50000 worth of stock for that decision he rendered In the Great Northwestern case Lies All those stories are lies replied the other emphatically Then looking cautiously around to make sure no one overheard he added contemptuously The big Interests fear him and theyre Inventing these lies totry and injure him They might as well try to blow up Glbraltar Theta t Is the public Is seriously aroused this time and the railroads are In a t panic It was true The railroad which heretofore had considered Itself supe inor to law had found itself checked in Its career of outlawry and oppression The railroad this modern octopus of steam and steel which stretches Its greedy tentacles out over the land had at last been brought to book John Burkett Ryder the richest man In the world the man whose name had spread to the farthest corners of the Tarth because of his wealth and whoso blessingtto himself but a source of dire peril tb all mankind was a genius born of the railroad age No outer age could have brought him forth His peculiar talents fitted exactly thoxondltloiis of his time Attracted early in life to the newly discovered oil fields of Penn sylvania he became a dealer in the raw product anti later a refiner ac quiring with capital laboriously saved first one refinery then another The railroads were cutting each others throats to secure the freight business of the oil men and John Burkett Ryder saw his opportunity He made secret overtures th the road guarah teeing a vast amount of business If he would get exceptionally low rates and the Illegal compact was made His competitors undersold In the market stood no chance and one by one they were crushed put of existence Ryder called these maneuvers business The world called them brigandage But the Colossus prospered and slowly built up the foundations of the extraordinary fortune which Is the talk and the won der of the world today Master nov of the oil situation Ryder succeeded In his ambition of organizing the Em- plre Trading company the most pow sfrful the most secretive andthe most stealthy business institution the corn imerclal world has yet known f J w Yet with all this success John Bur kett Ryder was still not content He was now a rich man richer by many millions than be had dreamed he could ever be Cut still ht was unsatisfied He became money mail lie wanted to be richer still to be the richest man In the world the richest man the had ever known And the richer he go the stronger the Idea grew upon him with all the force of a morbid obse siou Yet this commercial pirate this Na poleon of finance was not a wholly bad man He had his redeeming quail ties like most bad men His most pro flounced weakness und the one that had made him the most conspicuous man of his time was an entire Jack of moral principle No honest or honorable man could have amassed such stupendous wealth In other words John Ryder had not been equipped by na ture with a conscience He had no sense of right or wrong or justice where his own interests were concerned He was the prince of foists On the other hand he possessed qualities which with some people count as ylrtues He was pious and regular In his attendance at church and while he had done but little for charity he was known to have encouraged the guy ing of alms by members of his family which consisted of a wife whose tliniy voice was rarely heard and a son Jet ferson who was the destined successor of his gigantic estateISuch was the man who was the real power behind the Southern and Trans continental railroad More than anyone else Ryder had been aroused by the present legal action not so much for ttyojuouey interest at stake as that dillItpurchase fora so when the land was cheap of some thousand acres along the line and it Is true that at the time ott the purchase there had been some idea of laying the land out as a park but real estate values had Increased in as tonishing fashion the road could uo longer afford to parry out the original scheme and had attempted to dispose of the property for building purposes Including a right of way for a branch road The news made public In the newspapers had raised a storm of pro cJalmedon the express qoudition of a earl being laid out and In order to make a legal test they had secured an tion which had been 8 lstnlned by Judge Itossmore of the United States circuit court These details were hastily told and retold by one clerk to another as the babel of voices In the inner room grew louder and more directors kept arriv lug from the ever busy elevators The meeting was called for 3 oclock An other five minutes and the chairman would rap for order A tall strongly built man with jvhlte mustache and kindly smile emerged from the direc tors room and addressing one of the clerks asked Has Mr Ryder arrived yet Th6 alacrity with which the em ployee hastened forward to reply would indicate that his Interlocutor idapers n of more than ordinary important N senator not yet We expect him minute Then with a defer ential smile he added Mr Ryder usually jtrris s on the stroke sir r The Her ator gave a nod of acqules ceifce and turning on his heel greeted with a grasp pf the hand and affable smile his fellow directors as they passed in by twos and threes Senator Roberts was in the world of politics what his friend John Burkett Ryder was In the w Jllll of finance a leader of men lIe smarted life in Wis consin as an errand oy was educated In the public schoolsjnud later became clerk in a dry goods store finally go ing Into business fa his own account on a large scale lie was elected to the legislature where hid ability as an organizer soon gained the friendship of the men in power and later was sent to congress where lie was quickly initiated in the game of corrupt poll tits In ISSu he entered tho United States senate He soon bdtiunc the acknowledged loader of n considerable 3cuatorsIbe reckoned lthA very ambitious man with a great tote of power and thntIsaw In his lofty position only a splendid opportunity rot ensy graft IHe did not hesitate to make such with corporate Interests seeking influence at Washington as would enable him to accomplish this purpose and in this fray he had met and form ed a strong friendship With John Bur kett Ryder Each being a nJaster In his own field was useful to the other Neither wiis troubled with qualms of conscience so they never quarreled It- Ryder Int rests needed anything in the senate Roberts and his followers were there to i ttehd to It Just now the cohort wrs marshaled in defense of the railro ids against the attacks oft the new bill In fact Ryder managed rebate the senate busy J ally h t y tie time When on the other hand the senators wanted anythingand they often didRyder saw that they got it lower rates for this one a fat job for that one not forgetting themselves Senator Roberts was already a very rich man and although the world often wondered where he got It no one had the courage to ask him Hut the Republican leader was stir rednvlth nu ambition greater than that of controlling a majority in the senate He lord a daughter a marriageable f young woman who at least hi her fa thers opinlon would make n desirable Uteriheir to the greatest fortune ever amassed by oneeiuau a fortune which at Its present rate of Increase by the time the father died and the young couple were ready to inherit would probably amount to over 0000000000 Could the human mint grasp the possi bilities of such a colossal fortune It staggered the imagination Its owner betprize any man might well set himself out to win The senator was thinking of it now as he stood exchanging banal remarks with the men who accosted him If be could only bring off that marriage he would lie content The ambition of his life would be attained There was ho difficulty as far as John Ryder was concerned He favored the match and hind often spoken of It Inv deed Ifyder desired It for such an would naturally further his business interests In every way Roberts knew that his daughter Kate had more than a liking for Ryders hand some young son Moreover Kate was practical like her father and had sense enough to realize what It would Ryderfortunethere was young Ryder to reckon with It would take two lp this case to make a bargain Jefferson Ryder was in truth an entirely different man from his father It was difficult to realize that both hud sprung from the same stock = A col advantageshishad inherited from the parent only those characteristics which would have made him successful even If born poor activity pluck application dogged alert mentality To these qualities he added what his father sorely lacked a high notion of honor a keen sense of right and wrong He had the honest mans contempt for meanness of any description and he tfcad little patience with the lax so called business morals of the day Nor him a dishonorable or dishonest F oorf It IMS John Burkett Ryder the Colossus action could have no apologist and he could see no difference between the crime of tim hungry wretch who stole a loaf of bread and the coal baron who systematically robbed both his employees and the public In fact had he been on the bench he would probably have acquitted the human 1ereUctwho In despair hud appropriated the prime necessary of life and sent the overfed conscienceless coal baron to jail e hands of the large clock In the outer room pointed to 3 An active dapper little man with glasses and with booksunder his arm passed hurriedly from another office into the di rectors room There goes Mr Lane with the min utes The meeting Is called Wheres Mr Ryder asked one of the directors Theru was ai general move of the scattered groups of directors toward the committee room The clock over head began to strike The last stroke had not quite died away when the big swinging doors from the street were thrown open and there entered a tail thin man gray headed ami With a slight stoop but keen eyed and alert lie Was carefully dressed In a well fit frock cont white waistcoat black tie antisilk lint It was John Burketty der the Colos BUS CHAPTER I- IP1 fiftysix John Ruckctt Ryder was surprisingly well preserved With the exec Uloir of the slight stoop already noted and the rapidly thinning snob white hair his step was as light anl clastic and his brnlnas vigorous and alert as In a man of forty Of old EnglisD stock his physical makeup presented nil those strongly marked character istics of our which sprung from AngloSaxon ancestry but modified by nearly 300 years of different climate nnd customs has gradually produced the distinct and true American type as easily recognizable among the fam ily of nations as any other of tIlt earths children Tall and distinguished looking Ryder would have attracted attention any where Men who have accomplished much In life usually bear plainly upon ofnJlr ugs F eU11whichman In the street and ask Who is he Xnd nine times ouCof ten the object of our curiosity Isa man who has made his mark a successful soldier a fa mous sailor a celebrated author a distinguished lawyer or even a notorious crooliThere was certainly nothing In John Ryders outward appearance to Justify Lombrosos sensational description of him A social and physiological freak a degenerate and a prodigy of turpi tude who In the pursuit of money crushes with the insensibility of a steel machine every one who stands In his way On the contrary Ryder outwardly at least was a prepossess ing looking man His head was well shaped and he had an Intellectual brow while power wall expressed in every gesture of his hands and body Every inch of him suggested strength and resourcefulness His face when in good humor frequently expanded In a pleasant smile and he had even been known to laugh boisterously usually at his own stories which he rightlyc6usldered very droll and of which he possessed a goodly stock But In repose his face grew stern and- forbidding and when his prognathous jaw Indict tie of vill pj wer and bull dog tenacity snapped to with a click like sound those who beard it knew that squnll were coming But it as John Ryders eyes that were regarded as the most reliable barometer of his mental condition Wonderful eyes they were strangely eloquent and expressive and their most singular feature was that they pos sessed the uncanny power of changing color like a cats When their owner was at pence with the world and had temporarily shaken off the cares of business his eyes were of the most restful beautiful blue like the sky after sunrise on a spring morning and looking into their serve

Colossus on whom all eyes were turned as he entered In stantly the conversation stopped as by magic The directors nudged each oth er and whispered Instinctively Ryder singled out his crony Senator Roberts who advanced with effusive gesture Hello senator Youre punctual as usual Mr Ry der I never knew you to be late Ryder passed on and into the directors room followed by Senator Roberts and the other directors the procession being brought up by the dapper little secretary bearing the minutes With a nod here and there Ryder took his place in the chairmans seat and rapped for order Then at a sign from the chair the dapper little seen tart began in a monotonous voice to read the minutes of the previous meetIing tIQuickly they were approved and the chairman prtfteeded as rapidly as pos sible wit i the regular business routine That disposed of the meeting was f ready for the chief business of the day Ryder then calmly proceeded to present the facts in the case Some yearns bnck the road had ac quired as ah investment soine thou sands of acres of lund located hi the outskirts of Auburndale on tfie line of their rondo The land was bought cheap and there had been some talk of

found it impossible to carry gt the original Idea surely they wore misters of their own property The people of Auliurndulc thought dif ferently arid goaded on by the local newspapers hud begun action In the courts to restrain the road from diverting the land from its alleged original purpose They hail succeeded In getting the injunction but the rood had fought it tooth and nail find finally curried it to the supreme court where Judge Rossmore after reserving his opinion had finally sustained the In junction and decided apaln t time railroad That was tile situation Several llrectcrnT spoke the arguments qf each one being n iteration of those already heaniHy der did not listen to what was being said Why should h1 Was he not familiar with every possible phase of the game Better than these men who merely talked he Vas planning how the railroad rind all his other interests judgeRossmoreHe who controlled legislatures and dictated to supreme court judges had found himself powerless when each turn of the legal machinery had brought him face Jp face with Judge t 1 Vir riT Rossniore Suit after suit had been decided against him and the Interests he represented and each time it was Judge Rossmore who hat handed down the decision So for years these two men hnd fought a silent but bitter duel In which principle on the one side and attempted corruption on the other were the gage of battle Judge Ross more fought with the weapons which his oath and the law directed him to use Ryder wity the only weapons he understood bribery and trickery And each time It had been Rossmore who had emerged triumphant Despite eYe ery maneuver Ryders experience could suggest notwithstanding every card that could be played to undermine his credit and reputation Judge Rossmore coiktidenceed So when Ryder found he conldnot goldheRyderhtFrom his point of view he was fully justified Business is business He hurts my Interests therefore I remove him So he argued and he consid ered It no mare wrong to wreck the happiness of this honorable man than he would to have shot a burglar in self defense So having thus tran qufllizell his conscience he hall gone to work in his usually thorough manner and his success had surpassed the most sanguine expectations This Is what he had lone Bike many of our public servants whose labors are compensated only in niggardly fashion by an inconsiderate country Judge Rossmore was a man of but moderate means His income as justice of the supreme court was 12000 a year but for a man in his position having a certain appearance to keep up it little more than kept the wolf from the door He lived quietly but comfortably In New York with his wife and his daughter Shirley an attractive young woman who had grad tinted from Vassar and had shown a marked taste for literature The daugh ters education had cost a good deal of money and this together with life insurance and other incidentals of keep ing house in New York had about tak en all he had Yet he had managed to save a little and those years when he could put by a firth of his salary the judge considered himself lucky Se cretly he was proud of his comparative poverty At least the world could never ask him where he got It Ryder was well acquainted with Judge Rossmores private means The two men hat met at a dinner and al though Ryder had tried to cultivate the acquaintance he never received much encouragement Ryders son Jefferson too bad met Miss Shirley Rossraore and been much attracted toper but the father having more am bitious plans for his heir quickly dis couraged all attentions in that direr tion He himself however continued to meet the judge casually and one evening he contrived to broach the subject of profitable investments The judge admitted that by careful hoard lug and much stinting he had managed to save a few thousand dollars which he was anxious to Invest in something goodQuick as the keen eyed vulture swoops down on Its prey the wily financier seized the opportunity thus presented And he took so much trouble in answering the judges inexperienced questions and generally made himself so agreeable that the judge found himself regretting that he and Ryder had by force of circumstances been opposed to each other In public life so Iqug Ryder strongly recommended the purchase of Alaskan Min- Ing stock a new and booming enter prise which had lately become very active In the market Ryder said he had reasons to believe that the stock would soon advance and now there was uti opportunity to get It cheap A few days after he hind made the investment the judge was surprised to receive certificates of stock for double the amount he had pijid for At the same time he received a letter from tile secretary of the company explain Ing that the additional stock wad pool stool and not to be marketed at the present time it was In the nature of a bonus to which he was entitled as one of the early shareholders The let ter was full of verbiage and technical details of which the judge understood nothing but he thought It very liberdl of the company and putting the stocji away In his safe soon forgot all about It Had he been a business man hh would have scented peril He woull have realized that he hud now In hip possession 50000 worth of stock for which he had not paid a cent and furj tjiennore had deposited It when Ii reorj gnnizntlon came But the judge was sincerely grateful for Ryders apparently disinterested advice maid wrote two letters to him one in which lie thanked him for the trouble he hull taken and another In which be asked him If he was sure the company was financially sound as the Investment he contemplated making represented nil his savings He added In the second letter that he had received stock for double the amount of his Investment and that being a per feet child In business transactions he had been unable to account for the extra 50000 worth until the secretary of the company had written him assuring ordersTheseFrom that time on the Alaskan Mining company underwent mysterious changes New capitalists gained con = trol and the name was altered to the companyThenand dne shit the outcome of which meant millions to tile company was carried to the supreme court where Judge Rossmore was sitting The judge had by this time forgotten all about the company In which he owned stock He did not even recall ltn name He only knew vaguely that It Was a mine and that it was situated in Alaska Could he dream that the Grea Northwestern Mining company and the Company to which he had intrust ed his few thousands were one and the same In deciding on the merits of the case presented to him right seemed to him to he plainly with the North western and he rendered a decision to that effect It was on Important de cision involving a large sum and torn day or two it was talked about But as it was the opinion of the most learn ed and honest judge on the bench no one dreamt of questioning it But very soon ugly paragraphs be gun to appear In the newspapers OnE paper asked it It were true That Judge Rossmore owned stock In the Great Northwestern Mining company which had recently benefited so signally by his decision Interviewed by a reporter Judge Rossmore indignantly denied being Interested in any way In the company Thereupon the same paper returned to the attack stating that the judge must surely be mistaken as tiuv records showed a sale of stock him at the time the company was known as the Alaskan Mining co parry When he read this the judge wait overwhelmed It was true then They had not slandered him It was lie who had lied but how Innocently hpw in nocently I 5 His daughter ShIrley Who was his greatest friend and comfort was then In Europe She had gone to the con tlneut to rest after working for months on a novel which she had Just published His wife entirely without ex perlence in business matters and some what of an invalid was helpless to ad vise him But to his old and tried friend exJudge Stott Judge Ross more explained the facts as they wer Stott shook his head Its a conspir aryl he cried And John B Ryder Is behind It Ross more refused to be lleve that any man could scrdellbernt ly try to encompass anothers destxu tion but when more newspaper stories came out he begnn to realize that Stott was right and that his enemies had In deed dealt him a deadly blow Ont newspaper boldly stated that Judg t Rossmore was down on the mining companys books for 50000 motA stock than he had paid for and it went vs on to ask If this were payment for thf favorable decision just rendered Ross more helpless childlike as he was Jn business matters now fully realized the seriousness of his position My 9hiswhole day he remained closeted In bs library no one venturing near him As John Ryder sat

to address his fellow fitrec ors Instantly the room was silent again as the tomb One might ha k heard a pin drop so intense irfte in attention AH eyes were filed on tiJe chairman The air Itself seema charged with electricity that navte but a spark to set it ablaze Speaking deliberately and dtefcfet slonately the master dissembler vgan They had all listened carefully i said to what had been stated toy pre vious speakers The sItuation na doubt was very critical but they had weatb ered worse storms and he had every reason to hope they would outlive this storm It was true that public opimou was greatly Incensed against the matt roads and Indeed against all organ lied1 capital and was seeking to injure them through the courts For a timo this agitation would hurt business and lessen the dividends for it meant not only smaller annual earnings brit that a lot of inoueymust be spent In Washington The eyes of the listeners who werA hanging on every word involuntarily turned in the direction of Senator Roberts but the latter at that moment busily engaged in rummaging among a lot of papers seemed to have missed this significant allusion to the roads expenses In the District of Columbia Ryder continued In Ibis experience such waves of reform were periodical and soon wear themselves out when things go on just as they did beore Much of the agitation doubtless was a strike for graft They would have to go down In their pockets he supposed and then these yellow newspapers and these yellow magazines that were barking at their heels would let them go But In regard to the particular case now at issuethis Auburndale decisionthere- had been no way of preventing It In fluertce had been used but to no ef feet The thing to do now was to prevent any such disasters in future by removing the author of them The directors bent eagerly forward Had Ryder really got some plan up his sleeve after all The faces around thetable looked brighter and the di rectors cleared their throats rind set tled themselves down in their chairs as audiences do in the theater when the drama is reaching Its climax The board continued Ryder with icy calmness hnd perhaps heard and also seen in the newspapers the stories regarding Judge Rossmore and his alleged connection with the Great North western company Perhaps they hal not believed these stories It was only natural He had not believed them himself But he had taken the trou ble to inquire into the matter very carefully and he regretted to say that the stories were true In fact they were no longer denied by Judge Ross more

was gratified Hud he not collabor ated on the book to the extent of ac quainting the author with details of his fathers life and his chajucter tics which no outsider could possl ly have learned There had been no disloyalty to his father in doing this Jefferson admired his fathers srnjanfe r ess If he could not approve his lietbods He did not consider the book aka attack on his father but rather a powerfully written pen picture ofj an extraordinary man The acquaintance of his son with the daughter of Judge Itossmure had not escaped the eagle eye of Ryder Sr and much to the financiers annoyapce and even consternation he had as er talned tjiat Jefferson was n frequent caller at the Rossmore home He Immediately Jumped to the conclusion that this could mean only one thing and fearing what he termed the con sequences of the Insanity of immature minds he had summoned Jefferson peremptorily to his presence He told hIs son that all idea of marriage in that quarter was out of the question for two reasons Onewas that Judge Rossmore was his most bitter enemy the other was that he had hoped to see his sob his destined successor marry a woman of whom he Ryder Sr coyld approve He knew of such a woman one who would make a far more desirable mate than Mss Rossmore Pe alluded of course to Kate Roberts the pretty daughter of his old friend the senator The family interests would benefit by this alliance which was desirable from every point of view Jefferson had listened respectfully until his fathw had fig sill fRnd then grimly remarked that only Fe point JVHenot think she really cared for
