CHAPTER EIGHT Continued.
"You men slreuid know Hint every
strike Increases tho burdens of the
people. Every day your idleness lifts
tho price of their necessities. Idle
ness is Just another form of destruc
tion. Why could you not huve
listened to the counsel of Iteasou In
Juno Instead of In September, and
thus have suvrd these long months
of hardship and bitter violence? It
was because tho spirit of Tyranny
had entered your heurt and put your
Judgment In chains. It had blinded
you to honor also, for you men wore
working under contract. If the union
Is to command the support of honest
men, It must ho honest. It was
Tyranny that turned tho treaty with
Delgluin into a scrap of paper. That
kind of a thing will not do here. Let
mo assure you that Tyrunny has no
right to bo In this lnnd of ours. You
remind me of tho Protllgul Son who

tho companionship of swlno before he
came to himself. Do you not know
that Tyranny Is swine nnd the fodder
of swlno? It Is simply human hog
glhhnoss. "I huve one thing more to sny and
I uni finished. Mr. Ding, some time
ago you threw up your religion with
out realizing the effect that such an
act would bo likely tojiroduco on this
community. You are, no doubt, awnro
that ninny followed your example.
I've got no preaching to do. I'm Just
going to quote you n few words from
an authority no less responsible than
(Jcorge Washington himself. Our his
tory has Hindu one fact very clear,
namely, that he was u wise and far
Judge Crooker took from n shelf,
John Marshall's "Life of Washing
ton," nnd rend:
" 'It Is substantially true that virtue
or morality Is a necessary spring of
popular government nnd let 119, with
caution, ludulgo tho supposition that
morality can be maintained without
"'Let It simply bo asked where Is
tho security for property, for reputa
tion, for life, if u sense of religious
obligation desert the oaths which aro
the Instruments of Investigation In
courts of Justice?'
"iAJt mo add, on my own account,
1 tnut the treatment you received from
your men will vary according to their
respect for morality and religion.
"They could innnnge very well with
nn Irreligious muster, for you are-only
one. Dut an Irreligious mob Is n dif
ferent and highly serious matter, be
llevo me. Awny bnck in the seven
teenth century, John Dryden wrote
a wise sentence. It was this:
'"I have heard, Indeed, of some very
virtuous persons who have ended un
fortunately but never of a virtuous
nation; Providence Is engaged too
deeply when the cauee becomes gen
eral. "'If virtue Is tho prlco of n na
tion's life, let us try to keep our own
nation virtuous.' "
Mr. Ding and his mon left tho
Judge's otllce In a thoughtful mood.
Tho next dny, Judge Crooker met tho
mill owner on the street.
"Judge, I nccept your verdict," sold
tho latter. "I fear that I have been
rather careless. It didn't occur to
me that my example would bo taken
so seriously. I huve been n prodigal
und havo resolved to return to my
"Ho, servants I" snld tho Judge, with
a smile. "Drlng forth the best robo
and put It on him and put 11 ring on
his finger nnd shoes on his feet nnd
bring hither the fatted calf und kill
It und let us eat and be merry."
"We shall havo to postpono tho
celohrutlon," said Mr. Ding. "I huve
to go to Now York to-night, nnd I
sail for Kuglund to-morrow. Dut I
shall return before Christmas.."
A little farther on Sir. Ding met
Hiram Dlcnklusup. The luttcr hnd 11
plank on his shoulder.
"I'd like to hnve n word with you,"
said the mill owner us ho took hold
of tho plank und helped Illrnm to ease
It down. "I hear many good things
about you, Mr. Dlenklnsop. I fenr
that we Imvo all misjudged you. If I
havo over snld or dono anything to
hurt your feelings, I ntn sorry for It."
lllriun Dlenklnsop looked with as
tonishment Into tho eyes of tho mil
"I I guess I ain't got you plnced

some ain't ns hnd as they look. I
wouldn't wonder If wo wus mostly
purty much alike, come to shako us
"Let's bo friends, anyhow," said Mr.
Ding. "If there's anything I enn do
for you, let mo know."
That evening, as ho snt by the stove
In his little room over tho garage of
Mr. Singleton with his dog Christmas
lying beside him, Mr. Dlenklnsop fell
usleep nnd awoke suddenly with a
wild yell of alarm.
"What's the matter?" a volco In
quired. Mr. Dlenklnsop turned and saw his
Old Self standing In tho doorway.
"Nothln' but a, dream," said Dlen
klnsop ns' ho wiped his eyes.

looked nn' see that the dog had

wus goln' llko Sum Hill, an' that I
was hitched to htm. and couldn't let

o' the elephant an' so wns I. An' I'd
try to cut tho ropo with my Jack
knife but It wouldn't cut it wns so
dull. Then nil of a sudden he'd start
on the run an' twitch me over the
hills an' mountings, un' me tnkln'

"Tho fuct Is you're hitched to an

"The first thing to do Is to sharpen
your Jack knife."
"It's Night an' Silence thnt sots

they como he's npt to start for the

beglnnln' to move."
Dlenklnsop put on his hat and hur
ried out of the door.
Which Tells of a Merry Christmas
Day In the Little Cottage of
the Widow Moran.
Night nnd Silence are a stern test
of wisdom. For years, tho fun loving,
chattcrsomc Dlenklnsop hnd been
their enemy and wns not yet ut pence

tho place and who shall sny that
they did not save it from being hope
lessly overwhelmed? Dny was their
victory and they knew how to uchlevo
It. Noise wus the thing most needed.
So they roused tho people nnd called
up tho lights and set the griddles rat
tling. Tho gront, white cock that
roosted near tho window In tho Widow
Mornn's hen-house wntched for tho
first sign of weakness In the enemy.
When It enme, he sent forth n bolt of,
sound thnt tumbled Sllenco from his
throne nud shook the foundations of
tho gront dome of Night. It rang over
tho housetops nnd through every
street und alley In the village. That
started tho bottle. Silence tried In
vain to recover his sent. In a moment,
every cock In Dlngvlllo wns hurling
bombs nt him. Immediately, Dark
ness began to grow pulo with fright.
Seeing tho fate of his ally, ho broke
camp and lied ywestwnrd. Soon , the
Held wns clear and every proud cock
surveyed tho victory with a solemn
senso of large accompllstnent.
Tho loud victorious trumpets sound

"Then people blame me and say I'm
too fast," tho little clock went on.
"They don't know what nn old shirk

Theso reflections of the llttlo clock

Shoe-Throwing Old Custom.
Throwing old shores was not always
confined to weddlugs, though tho cub

to the origin of tho practlco and its
exact significance ; It Becms, however,
as If It had to do with tho transfer

as such among the nations In which
the custom began.
It was in tho sense of confirming a
