And it was a noticeable fact that the
minister's look revealed more doubt
and anxiety than the other man's look ,
which contained more or less of indif
ference and distrust. Philip sighed ,
and his visitor soon after took his
So it came about that Philip Strong
plunged into a work which from the
time he stepped into the dingy little
hall and faced the crowd peculiar to it

strange career , grew in strangeness
rapidly as days came on.
He was Invited again and again to
address the men in that part of Milton.
They were almost all of them mill em
ployees. They had a simple organization
for debate and discussion of questions
of the day. Gradually the crowds in
creased as Philip continued to come
and developed a series of talks on
Christian socialism. There was stand
ing room only. lie was beginning to
know a number of the men , and a
strong affection was growing up in
their hearts -for him.
That was just before the time the
trouble at the mills broke out. He had
just come back from the hall where he
had now been going every Thursday
evening and where he had spoken on
his favorite theme "The Meaning and
Responsibility of Power , Both Finan
cial and Mental. " He had treated the
subject from the Christian point of
view entirely. He had several times
roused his rude audience to enthusiasm.
Moved by his theme and his surround
ings , he had denounced , with even more
than usual vigor , those men of ease
and wealth who did nothing with their
money to help their brothers. He had
mentioned , as he went along , what
great responsibility any great power
puts on a man and had dealt in a broad
way with the whole subject of power
in men as a thing to be used and al
ways used for the common good.
He did not recall his exact state
ments , but felt a little uneasy as he
walked home , for fear he might possi
bly have influenced his particular au
dience against the rich as a class. He
iiad not intended anything of the kind ,
jut had a vague idea that possibly he
ought to have guarded some words or
sentences more carefully.
He had gone up into his study to fin
ish some work when the bell rang
sharply , and he came down to open the
door just as Mrs. Strong came in from
the other room , where she had been
giving directions to the girl , who had
jone up stairs through the kitchen.
The minister and his wife opened the
door together , and one of the neigh
bors rushed into the hall so excited he
could hardly speak.
"Oh , Mr. Strong , won't you go right
down to Mr. Winter's house ? You
jave more influence with those men
; han any one around here. "
"What men ? "
"The men who are going to kill him
if some one doesn't stop it ! "
"What ! " cried Philip , turning pale ,
not from fear , but from self reproach ,
to think he might have made a mis
take. "Who is trying to kill him the
mill men ? "
"Yes ! No ! I do not , cannot tell.
But he Is In great danger , and you are
.he only man in this town who can
help to save him. Come ! "
Philip turned to his wife. "Sarah ,
t is my duty. If anything should hap
pen to me , you know my soul will meet
vours at the gates of paradise. "
He kissed her and rushed out into
When Philip reached the residence of
Mr. Winter , he found himself at once
n the midst of a mob of howling , an
gry men , who surged over the lawn
and tramped the light snow that was
falling into a muddy mass over the
walks and up the veranda steps. A
arge electric lamp out in the street in
front of the house threw a light over
he strange scene.
Philip wedged his way in among the
men , crying out his name and asking
for room to be made so that he could
see Mr. Winter. The crowd , under the
mpulse which sometimes moves ex
cited bodies of men , yielded to his re
quest. There were cries of "Let him
have a minister if he wants one ! "
'Room here for the priest ! " "Give the
preacher -ilwnce to do some praying
where it's needed mighty bad ! " and so
on. Philip found a way opened for
him as he struggled toward the house ,
and he hurried forward , fearing some
great trouble , but hardly prepared for
what he saw when he finally reached
the steps of the veranda.
Half a dozen men had the mill owner
n their grasp , having evidently drag
ged him out of his dining room. His
coat was half torn off , as if there had
been a struggle. Marks of bloody fin-
jers stained his. collar. His face was
white , and his eyes filled with the fear
of death. Within , upon the floor , lay
his wife , who had fainted. A son and
a daughter , his two grown up children ,
clung terrified to one of the servants ,
who kneeled half fainting herself by
the side of the mill owner's wife. A
table overturned and fragments of a
ate dinner scattered over the side
board and on the floor , a broken plate ,
the Drint nf > n mmldv foot OIL the white
tiling before the 'op inv lire ihe wuolu
picture flashed upon Philip like a scene
out of the French revolution , and he
almost rubbed his eyes to know If he
was awake and in America in the
nineteenth century. He was intensely
practical , however , and the nature of
his duty never for a moment escaped
him. He at once advanced and said
"What does all this mean ? Why this
attack on Mr. Winter ? "
The moment Mr. Winter saw Philip
and heard his voice he cried out , trem
bling : "Is that you , Mr. Strong ?
Thank God ! 'Save me ! They are going
to kill me ! "
"Who talks of killing or taking hu
man life contrary to law ? " exclaimed
Philip , coming up closer and placing
his hand on Mr. Winter's arm. "Men.
what are you doing ? "
For a moment the crowd fell back a
little from the mill owner , and one of
the men who had been foremost in the
attack replied with some respect ; al
though in a sullen manner : "Mr.
Strong , this is not a case for your In
terference. This man has caused the
death of one of his employees , and he
deserves hanging ! "
"And hanging he will get ! " yelled an
other. A great cry arose. In the midst
of It all Mr. Winter shrieked out his
innocence. "It is all a mistake ! They
do not know ! Mr. Strong , tell them
they do not know ! "
The crowd closed around Mr. Winter
again. Philip knew enough about men
to know that the mill owner was in
genuine danger. Most of his assail
ants were the foreign element in the
mills. Many of them were under the
influence of liquor. The situation was
critical. Mr. Winter clung to Philip
with the frantic clutch of a man who
sees only one way of escape and clings
to that with mad eagerness. Philip
turned around and faced the mob. He
raised his voice , hoping to gain a hear
ing and reason with it , but he might as
well have raised his voice against a
tornado. Some one threw a handful
of mud and snow toward the prisoner.
In an Instant every hand reached for
the nearest missile , and a shower of
stones , muddy snowballs and limbs
torn from the trees on the lawn was
rained upon the house. Most of the
windows in the lower story were bro
ken. All this time Philip was eagerly
remonstrating with the few men who
had their hands on Mr. Winter. He
thought if he could only plead with
them to let the man go he could slip
with him around the end of the veran
da through a side door and take him
through the house to a place of safety.
He also knew that every minute was
precious , as the police might arrive at
any moment and change the situation.
But in spite of his pleas the mill own
er was gradually pushed and dragged
down off the veranda toward the gate.
The men tried to get Philip out of the
"We don't want to harm you , sir.
Better get out of danger , " said the
same man who had spoken before.
Philip for answer threw one arm
about Mr. Winter , saying : "If you kill
him , you will kill me with him. You
shall never do this great sin against an
innocent man. In the name of God , 1
call on every soul here to"
But his words were drowned in the
noise that followed. The mob was in
sane witli fury. Twice Mr. Winter
was dragged off his feet by those down
on the walk ; twice Philip raised him
"If you hill him , you will kill me. "
to his feet , feeling sure that if the
crowd once threw him down they
would trample him to death. Once
some one threw a rope over the wretch
ed man's head. Both he and Mr. Win
ter were struck again and again. Their
clothes were torn into tatters. Mr.
Winter was faint and reeling. Only
his great terror made his clutch on
Philip like that of a drowning man.
At last the crowd had dragged the
two outside the gate Into the street.
Here they paused awhile , and Philip
again spoke to the mob.
"Men , made in God's image , listen to
me ! Do not take innocent life. If you
kill him , you kill me also , for I will
never leave his side alive , and I will
not permit such murder if I can pre
vent it. "
"Kill them both tbo bloody coward
and the priest ! " yelled a voice. "They
both belong to the same church. "
"Yes , hang 'em ! Hang 'em both ! " A
tempest of cries went up. Philip tow
ered up like a giant. . In the light of
the street lamp he looked out over the
