She looked at him with curious Inten

"And what are you going to do?"
askod tho girl, Intensely Interested,
lennlng forward, her breath coming
"I nra going to bo mayor of New

"Yos. And then?"
It touchod him Immensely to soo
tho matter of fact way with which

Ho stoppod and, not trusting him

again. Thoro wns n long paiiHo.
"Woll," said ho. flashing a direct
look at hor, "what do you think of It,

What could he mean? She strove
to moot his glanco fairly; but her own
eyes foil before his own direct gaze.
"Do you think I can do It, make my
dream como truo?" bo asked.
Which dream, Mr. Oormly?"
"lioth of them."
"That you can be mayor of Now
York; that you can redeem tho city;
that you can restore to the people
their llbortlcs I don't know. Other
men havo tried It and have failed."
"Aud I may fail, too," answered
Qormly vory quietly. "Such achieve
ments aro not tho results morely of
ono man's efforts. Tho people them
selves must respond. Whother I can
mako them do that or not will de
termine tho issue."
"I think you can, Mr. Qormly. You
havo made mo respond."
"And will you holp mo?"
"I! What can I do?"
"Do what you have dono tonight;

"That's tho other dream, and'
"Mr. Oormly," eh said resolutely,
"If you make that dream come true,
you will have done more service to
humanity than 'has ever been dono by
a citizen of this republic, and you
will he tho greatest man on this side
of tho world."
"And If my other dream cornea

pleet." "May they all como truo!" said the
girl Impulsively rising and giving him
"Do you mean that?" eagerly asked
tho man, gratefully taking her prof

"I don't know," she faltered, "what
your other dream Is; but if it corre
sponds with tho ono you havo told mo,
1 repeat tho prayer."
"At tho proper tlmo," said tho man,
"you uhnll know. Meanwhile, tomor

tho girl, smiling.

went on lightly, glad and relieved at
this chango from the intensity of tho
Interview. "I shall uuuounce myself

tho next election. Representatives of
the minority party havo already ap
proached mo on that subject."
"And what did you say to them?"
"Nothing yet. You see this Is All

"Havo you ever made a public
"Never In my life."
"Woll, If you can talk to the people
as you have talked to mo tonight, I
tm sure .vou will win."
The girl said It artlessly, carelessly;
for You, Mist Haldane.'
but his heart leaped to the assurance.
"That's to bo detormlnod." he raid.
"Most men would say It was easier
to talk to ono woman 'than to a thou
sand people. 1 have had experienro
with neither. As I told you, It haa
been a quarter of a century since I
talked alono with a woman."
"Was that In tho west of which you
"I am glad to tell you. It was In
tho west. Sho wasn't a good woman,
MIsh Hnldaue," ho said simply, "and
I havo never seen her since that
"Didn't you know that sho was not
a good woman?" asked tho girl.
"Not nt that time; I did not suspect,
that Is, I was only a boy of nineteen."
"And Is It because of thnt woman
thnt you havo seen no others until I
"Yes, Miss Haldah.
"Poor man!" said the girl half to
"Not at all," answered Gormly;
"you were quite worth waiting for."
"Eleanor," said hor father at this
moment, "won't you tako my hand? I
wnnt to talk to our host a llttlo my
self." CHAPTER V.
Mr. Haldane Is Greatly Surprised,
Mr. Ilaldano was In somothlng of a
quandary. For certain reasons and for
somo tlmo ho had boon contemplating
an lntorvlow with Qormly. Not only
did ho greatly desire tho Interview
which wns Indeed necessary, almost
vital In fact, to the furtherance of cer
tain matters In which ho was deeply
concerned, but ho did not desire that
bia Intorest, personal interest, that Is,
In the affair should appear.
The opposition had greatly under
rated the charactor auu nb II. y o.
Oormly. The Gotham Freight Vrae
tlon compan'y, for instance, had pooh
poohed him nt first, and even now,
though tho public press vns filled
with accounts of him and his dolngr,
they still greatly underestimated his
qualities. Haldano himself had Joined
In this depreciation until ho hud met
Gormly. Ho had as yet enjoyed no
opportunity of conversation with him,
savo In u gonoral way, as has been
seen; but ho was accustomed to deal
with men, and ho saw instantly that
ho was face to face with a personal
ity at once ablo, courageous, deter
mined, and strong.
Heboid tho two mon seated on cither
sldo of tho bright flro In tho library,
Haldano smoking one of Gormly'o ex
cellent Havauas; glassos, bottles, and
Ico on a little tablo at hand. Ho had
disapproved of Mm. Ilaldano's man
ner, not because ho thought It tinsult
cd to the occasion, but on account of
tho peculiar qualities and characteris
tics of Gormly and the relationship In
which ho stood to certnln matters of
importance Ho had been Inclined on
tho first entrance to follow his wire's
patronizing, arrogant assumption of
superiority; but now ho strove to In
fuse nil tho geniality and cotdlallty
posslblo Into his voice nnd manner.
On the other hand, Gormly natural
ly had n deep Interest In Haldano. As
tho father of tho woman ho loved, ho
would necessarily bo a great factor
In tbo battle ho meant to wngo for her
hand. His consent and lnlluenco,
whllo not absolutely essential, would
naturally be of grcnt value. If ho
could 'by any means win the support
and countenance of the grcnt financier,
his dream would bo by that much the
more easy of realization. Ho had an
Idea, however, that UiIb would bo Im
possible. That did not daunt him ot
render him tho less alort. -To win
Hnldnne's consent possibly might bo
no more practicable than to win Miss
Ilaldano's consent. Yet Gormly was
accustomed to attempt tho Impossible,
and nine times out ot ten to achieve
It. That Haldane had any relation
ship, or could have any relationship,
to him other than that of a prospect
ive fathor-ln-law nover entered his
hoad. That was sufficient to render
tho Interview memorablo to him.
Tho conversation began with a re
mark from the older man about tho
weather. I have long wondered why
thu weather is tho atapto Inaugural
"I havo rarely experienced so severe
a snowstorm," said Haldane blandly.
"I havo been coming down to Long
Island In winter off and on ever since
I wus n boy, and this surpasses any
thing within my knowledge."
"It is had enough for New York," re
sponded Gormly. "Here when tho
temperature gets down to tho zero
mark nnd the wind blows thirty or
forty miles an hour, and It snowa hard
all day, we call it a blizzard
At that last remark, though Haldano
had no ostensible connection with the
street department, or any other de
partment of the municipal administra
tion in fact, the man slightly llftod his
head and glanced for a moment with
deeper Interest at bis companion..
"I tako It from your allusion that
you havo experienced worse storms
"I have been In real bllzzardy, Mr.
Haldane," answered Gormly quietly;
"more than once where the wind's
velocity was scarcely to be measured,
where the , temperature was from
twenty to thirty below, where tho sleet
needles cut like whips, and tho storm
had full sweep unchecked and un
broken by any thing. Howover, I am
glad ot tho storm In this instance,
slnco It has enabled me to extend to
you nnd your party tho shelter of my
roof. I havo been acquainted I have
Had the privilege of knowing, that Is
your daughter for somo tlmo, and I
am honored In the acquaintance of hut
father and mother and your friends."
"You say you have known my daugh
ter for some time?"
"I have had that pleasure."
"If I mistake not, she said that you
had been interested in her settlement
work. Quixotic imaginations of an
enthusiastic girl, my dear sir; but 1
"You do well," returned tho other.
"And If you will give mo leave to dlf
for with you, I hardly call It Quixotic.
I havo examined Into tho plan thor
oughly, and I must say it strikes mo nt
being altogether admlrablo as woll as
entirely feasible. I hope and bcllovo
it will succcod."
"Quito so," returned Haldane. Ho
was not In the least interested In tho
"I havo assisted Miss Haldano in
every way possible," returned Gormly,
who did not propose to be questioned
as to tho details of his relation to the
scheme. "Of course," ho went on,
"your own reputation as a financier Is
known to mo ns It Is to all of New
York, and if 1 may bo permitted to say
so I am ot tho opinion that a large
part of your executive ability, not to
say genius, has descended to your
"Thank you," was tbo answer. "El
eanor Is certntnly a most capable
"And It must bo a sourco of grati
fication to you that sho chooses to ox
ercisu her capability In this direction
rather than in the vain and aimless
social avocations of a largo nnd in
fluential section of our so cnllod best
people in tho city?"
"Certainly, vory true. Hut frnnkly,
I could wish thnt there was n more
equabto division of tlmo between the
or high and tho low, so to opoal;;
that Eleanor could glvo more of her
attention to thoso duties, which nftor
all, my dear Mr. Gormly, however wr
men "of tho world may doprocnto them,
go to mako up so largo n part ot life,
and leave more of tho detail work o!
this Institution to othors."

CHURCH LIGHTED BY WIND
Novel Method Employed to Illuminate
Sacred Edifice Near Birming
Probably ono of tho moat novel
mothods of providing lighting for a
church la that employed at tho old
Coscly church, situated a few miles
out from Birmingham, England.
About COO feet from tho church Is
tho mouth of u dlsuaod coal mine,
around which nro huge piles of tail
ings. Upon ono of these a steel tower
CO feet high is erected and a windmill
18 feet In diameter Installed. At tho
base of tho tower in a small house is
an electric generator which Is run by
tho mill. Tho current thus generated
feeds 27 lumps In tho chinch, two In
the chapel, two In tho vestry; oporntos
a motor for pumping tho pipe organ,
and also lights 30 lamps In tho rcc-4
tori'. A storugo bnttory In the rectory
is n part of this unlquo lighting plant.
PITIFUL SIGHT WITH ECZEMA
"A fow days nfter birth wo noticed
an Inflamed spot on our baby's hip
which soon began spreading until
baby was completely covered even In
his eyes, cars und scalp. For eight
weeks ho wns bandaged from head to
foot. Ho could not have a stitch of
clothing on. Our regular physician
pronounced it chronic eczema. He hi
n very ablo physician nnd ranks with
the best in this locality, nevertheless,
the disease began spreading until
baby wns completely covered. Ho
was losing flesh so rapidly that wo bo
camo alarmed nnd decided to try Cutl
cum Soap nnd Ointment.
"Not until I commenced using Cutl
cura Soap nnd Ointment could wo tell
what ho looked like, ns we dared not
wash him, nnd I had beon putting one
application after anothor on him. On
removing tho sculo from his head the
hair came off, and left him entirely
bald, but slnco wo havo boen using
Cuticura Soap and Ointment ho has
aa much hair ns ever. Four weeks
after wo began to uso tho Cuticura
Soap and Ointment ho was entirely
cured. I don't bellevo anyone could
have eczema worso than our baby.
"Before wo used the Cuticura Rem
edies wo could hardly look at him, ho
was such a pitiful sight. He would
fuss until I would treat him, they
semod to rellove him so much. Cuti
