' 'Stop nt the hntoher's , too ; T want n

' 1 his tinio his hcml was lifted.
"You must think I'm going to got tom
thousands. "
u was Saturday , tlio twentieth of Octo-
In r , nnd the company , imdur tlio pretense -
tense of a break in thu engine , had sus
pended work in tlio mine. For .some
lime , fearing a panic , not wishing to in-
ereasu their nlrcndy heavy stock , they
had been usin } ; every oxcttsu to sto ] > thu
labor of I heir ten thousand ninn.
' 'Von know Anton's waiting for yon at
I'A vantage , " resumed Mrs. Million , atter
a tow moments of failonuu. "Oo on ; he'll
be mad if ho has to wait for you. "
Million nodded his head. In llio weari
ness of a day of enforced idleness , they
had not bruakfusti-d until noon , and thu
younj ; man had jjouu to I'asseneur im
mediately upon arising from tlio table ,
saying ln > Would wait them for Mahon.
The : leek btrnek two. Tlio wife con
tinued :
"You ought to hurry ; and if those gen
tlemen are there , you must talk with
them about your father. Tlio doctor's
wrong. Ho'a able to work yet ; ain't you ,
For ten days old Bonnemorl had been
utterly helpless ; his limbs swollen twieo
their si/.e. Slio was compelled to ask
the question n second time. Then ho
growled :
"Of course , I'll work. Itacnttsc I have
rheumatism once in a whilu , is no reason
why 1 honld stop for good. They're
trying to get out 01 giving mo my pen-
bion of a hundred ami sixty francs. "
ISlrs. Million wan thinking Of tlio forty
SOILS earned by the old iniin , which lie
xtrhaps would no longer bring her , and
aho groaned with tear.
"My God ! it' this keeps on we'll all bo
dead soon. "
"Wo won't bo hungry when we're
dead , " said Mahon.
lie added a few nails to his .shoes , and
decided to set out , as ho was to be paid
that afternoon. All the men were start
ing Ironi the alley , followed by their
WIM-S , who begged them to return at
oneo. 'J lii.y ! had given them many com
missions to prevent them spending tlio
ri inaiiidiii- the day in llio s.ilo'ms.
At Itashoneur'H , Anton had learned
some news. For a number ot days mi-
ciih.v reports had been circulating. Thu
company were grow ing more and more
il Muonleiitc-d with the propping. A eon-
Hiet appear -d snru. not only trom that ,
but on account of other bccrot and grave
As Anton arrived at the saloon , a min
er , wlio was taking a drink , ot Ins rot urn
I torn iWoiislon , was tolling tlio men Unit
a not co was posted up in the c.ishiur s
0 neu. But ho could not read , so ho did
not know what it was about. Man atter
man entered , each bringing a dill'orunt
.story. Itseonied. novertnt-less , that they
they had all come to a resolution a re-
vol'i was .springing up.
"What do you b.iy to it ? " asked Anton ,
sitting down to a tahlu near Joiiv.inne ,
\\lio , as usual , was smoking. 'J ho m.i-
ca licit wont onith h s cigarette ,
It was.ujisy tobeo tiny wcru going to
try haisli measures , llo was the only ono
\\aliintelligcncoenough to : imil.\/u \ the
Mluat on. lie e.\phuncd in his quaint
manner that the company , fearing a
1 ante , wt re forced to t educe their ex-
/ il they d-d not wish to go under ,
ai.d Mituraliy it was the .salaries ot the
workmen which they would cut down , under ! -omo pivtcn o or other. The
coal was not helling , nearly all the man-
utactories .stood Mill. Tins saving Hind
U.-IH making the eompauy uneasy ; it was
a tnreal for thu fiituni. A strike would
cletir it away whilu the funds were .still
low , and cohsuquontly they wore trying
to bnngon that .strilco.
Kassmictir had sealed himself ncr
Anton , and both IKtuned with an air ot °
consternation. They were able to talk
in a loud No ono was thuru but
Madam UasMmciir , who was loaning oa
tlm bar.
"U hat an idea1"murmured the tavern-
keeper. "Thu company can make noth
ing trom n htriko , or tlm workmen cither ,
1 hi ! bust thing is to umluratand each
other. "
llo was very wlso , ho always appeared
reasonable. Ever sincu the growing pop-
ular.ty of his former lodger ho had been
iiMiiperated at that system of rapid pro-
greH-s , .saying one would obtain nothing
which they insisted upon having all at
oneo. Though , with llio good iiaturo of
a hit man usually full ot beer , a growing
jealousy was arising in him , which was
aggravated by tlm de.soitioii of his sa
loon.hero the \u > rl > mon came less to
drink and listen to him : and now he be
gan protecting the company , lorgetting
the Imtniil which hu , as a dibcliargetl
miner felt tor them.
" ' the strike "
"Then jon'ro against ?
cried Madame Hahsonuur , without leav
ing the bar.
Ami when ho had replied yesbho made
li in boxilent.
"Von have no heart , let thesu gentle
men talk. "
Anton had been thinking with his oyea
tin the drink which had been burvcd him ,
Finally ho ra .sod his head.
"All that our comrades say is very pos-
sibln , and it will bo. necessary for us to
Mr ko if they force us to do M > . I'lnehait

gaining an } thlng _ , Only ho sees in this
an c\celhirt.oce.iKioii ) to decide our mini
to join his company. Well , hero's his
letl.r. "
I'luchart. grieved at the distrust In
ivh ei | jjm MontMin miners held the In-
t nmtlmi'iil , hoped to MO them all ml-
In r if a coiil'iet ' w th tlm company com-
1" 11 illlii in to strike. In spite of his ef-
Ion * Anton had only been ublo to ob
tain n few members , using his influence
on behalf of the saving fund which wa <
much better received. Hut tlint fund
wasfitill small ! and Uio striken must
join llio association , so Unit tlioir brotlior
workmen nil over tlio ciu itry would
como to their aid.
' How much have you in llio fund ? " replied -
plied Hnss-enetir.
"Scarcely tiirco tliou sand frnnci , " re
plied Anton , "You know the directors
spoke to mo of it llio day boforp yester
day. Oh , they were very polite , they
told mo tlmy would not prevent tlm work
men from starting a saving fund ; bill t
saw they wanted the control of it them-
pelves. From llio look of things I think
we'll have to li < iht against them. "
The tavern-keeper walked tip nnd
down the roc in , with an air of contempt.
Three thousand frolics' ' What good
would tlmvbo ? It would not lastsK
days , and if thev counted on strangers ,
lltn peonln of Knghuul , they might as
well llo down and dm nt oneo. No , tlittt
strike would bo too stupid.
Then for tlio time angry
words wcro exchanged between the
three men , who generally understood
each other.
"What do you think of it ? " said Anton
turning again to Joitvarlno.
Hn , without , taking his eignrcllo from
his mouth , answered in bis usual disdain
ful manner :
"Strikes ? they're foolish. " Then amid
the angry sjlenco which fell , ho added
slowly :
"Alter all I don't savno. if that amuses
you , it , ruins one ami kills the other , so
that is always that much made. Only in
that way , it would take a thousand years
to renew the world. Commence , there
fore , by blowing up with a barrel of
powder that prison in which you are
dying. "
With his little hand , ho designated the
Vulture , the buildings of which could bo
seen f mm the open door. Unt an un-
forsecn occurrence interrupted him.
Pologno , the large rabbit who had ven
tured out of the door , was driven back
by stones hurled by a number of boys ;
and in her fright , with drooping cars ,
and tail upraised , slip took refuge be
tween his legs , scratching him to betaken
it ] > . When he had lain her across his
Unee.s. hhellering her with both hands ,
he fell into that sort of dream which the
caress of that soft skin always plunged
Just then Malioi ontcred. He did not
wish a drink ; in spite of thn polite invit
ation of Madame Uassoncnr , who sold
her beer as though she was giving it
away. Anton rose , and both men went
oil' t'owaid Montson.
The lifteenth. on which the miners were
paid , seemed like a fetu day. Aerowd of
men were constantly leaving the alloy.
The cashier's room being very small ,
they preferred to wait oubt do , and stood
in groups on the pavement , blocking up
tlio doorway from the line of men which
was constantly increasing , btreet ven
ders , thinking to pront by the occasion ,
placed along the road the r ba/.aars , con
taining every coneeivablo tiling from
froekery to meat , lint tne saloons reaped
the richest harvest , lor the m ners sloo'l
at the counters while wa ting for their
turn to bo paid , and , alter receiving
their money , returned to soUlo tor
drinks , and always muled by having
some others. Thcj weru wise men who
did not spend a greater part of thuir
earnings before reaching home.
Meanwhile , when Mahon and Anton
reached that croud ot men , they saw
each ono Idled with a sullen exaspera
tion , while hands \\ero doubled up and
violent words ran from month to mouth.
"Is this truo. ' a-kcd iUahonoi ( Jhaval ,
whom he met he lore the saloon PiipictU ) .
" done tlusd . ' " ,
"Ilave they really rt/v thing.
Cliavai only rn'pliud with a , low growl ,
casting a sidelong glance upon Anton.
For some t mo a norce jealousy of t.iat
comradu had been growing on him , ho
In gan to hate tliatnuwconier who placid
himself nt their head and who
had become so popular in the alley , llo
had also quart clod wtli Uathoiinu on his
account , lur.ous . at the thought of her
living in the liousp with that man.
Million asked him anotner question :
"Had the Vulturu donu t.ioy had
threatened ? "
And when he turned awav , after hav
ing nodded h s head , llio two men de
cided to go to tlio mine.
'I he cashier's I-OOIH was a little .squaro
olhce , separated by a grating. Lpon
benches along tlio walls , i.vo or s'm n-
cis were waiting , wli.lo the uasiuor , as-
.s.sti d by an cmplino , were paving
another man , who .stood beioro the door ,
cap in hand. Above the benches , on Urn
leit , a yellow placard was pasted , s-tiil
clean on taat dusty wall , hinoo car.y
morning , a constant iiln ot men had
passed before it. Kntering room in
groups ottwosor throes , tnuy stood tneru
motionless tor a second , Uunvontuway ,
shrugging tnoirsiioulilej'a w th a di-juctud
air.Now , bofoio tlio bill stood two men ;
one pining , with a square , brute-1 ko
lii-iid , the other old , witli a thin , aged
face. Neither one couin rend , and viiilo
the boy slowly s.iullcd out tint woids , h.s
compaiiion siood .stupidly loo' on.
Many entered this to Kok Without com-
"Head that , will you ? " Raid Mahon to
his iricnd. Kvon he was only able to
bjiell it out lelti-r by letter ,
Then Anton reading. It was a
notice from thu company to the coal men
in all tliu mines Jt noliticd them tllat
owing to tliu tear of being compelled to
iniliut heavy lines lor their poor prop
ping , it hid resolved to begin a new m. in
ner of payment to the coal diggers.
Henceforth it uoiild pay in part tor urn
timbering , so much for o\ery cubic of
wood sent down and u.sod. Tlm price of
the car.sonld naturally bo cut
down irom ulty centimes to lorty. And
an obseiiro calculatipn was given to
provu that the ton centimes lost on t o
ears would bu made up in tno ] ir co paid
for timbering. The company added that ,
wishing to give every ono time to become
convinced ot the advantages presented
by this new metnod. it had concluded
not to put the plan into operation until
Monday , thu lust of Uccuuiliur.
"Head lower thorn ! " or ud the cashier.
Wo can't hear our own oars , "
Anton finished reading without noticing
this observation. His voiuo trombledj
and when ho had concluded they all still
ii.M'dly regarded the caul Then thu old
mliicTr and young nun loft thu room with
bent shoulders.
"My ( Jed " murmured Mahon.
Ho and his companion seated them
selves. Thinking with heads bent , whilu
thu delile .si 11 continued be torn that Mil-
low paper , they wcro calculating.Vas
the company making game of them ?
Tlmy could never require from the tim
bering tlm ten centimes lost on thu ears.
At the most they could only reach eight
centimes , and that left two of which they
would bo robbed , with counting the tinm
they would IOMI in popping carefully.
They had cut down their salaries in this
dihgui.M'd manner. The company ccono-
mi/.ed by stealing fjom the miners.
"My God1 My God ! " repeated Mahon ,
raising his head. "Wo'ro tools jf wo
stand this. "
Hut the grated door opened , and ho
approached to bu paid. The lieau miners
iiloiio presented themselves atth'u ' ollico.
They received all the money earned by
thu men in their drift and attorward di
vided it among them ,
"Mahon and consorts ! " ho called ,
"vein Feloiinlero ! drill number seven1"
Thu employe looked over tliuiss ) | made
by llio overseers each day from llio
board , on which the number of cars sent
up wcro tallied. Then ho repeated :
"Mahon and consorts' vein Felonnierol
drill number seven ! Onu hundred and
thiity-livo francs "
The cashier held out the money ,
' 'Pardon mo. " Monsieur , stammered
Mahon in dit > tres.s , "Haven'tyoinmidea
mistake ! " Ho looked at Unit binall
amount , of money \\iihoufc touching il ,
shivering slightly. Of course ho expect
ed poor pay , but it could not bo ns little
nri that ; they must have calculated
wrong. When ho would have given
Xachnrlo his part nnd Anton nnd the
man who replaced ( Jhnvnl , then ho
would only have fifty franca loft to di
vide between .lu's father , Catherine ,
.Johnnie and himself.
"No. wo have not nmdonmisUiko , "
replied the employe. "Wo have de
ducted two Sundays nnd four days that
there was no workt that loaves jou only
nine days to bo pnid for. "
Million followed the calculation , added
up in a low tone ; nine days would give
him nbout thirty francs , eighteen lo
Catherine , nine to Johnnie : as for old
ISonm-morl , hu had worked but three
days. No matter , by adding the seventy
franco of Xnehariu and tlio two other
men , that would surely make more.
"Don't forget the lines , " snid the Pin-
ployo. "Twenty francs for defective
timbering. "
The digger mndo a gesture of despair.
Twenty Francs linn and fourdnvn' laid
on" . When Xacharlo WIIH not keeping
house and Hounoinont. worked ho brought
homo a hundred nnd fifty francs every
pay day.
" take it " cried the cashier
"Go on , , im
patiently ; "don't you see there are oth
ers waiting. If you don't waul it , say
so. "
When Mahon finally started to pick up
the money with his great trembling hand
the employe detained him.
"Wail , I have your other namo. Touv
saint Mahon , is it not ? The secretary
general desires lo speak to you. Como
in , he is alone. "
Astonished , the workman found him
self in an ollico furnished in solid ma
hogany and faded green rep. And hu
listened for fifteen minutes while the sec
retary general , a thin , p.ilo man , spoke
to him over the papers piled on his desk ,
without raising nis eyes. The bu//ing in
his ears prevented him from
lie vaguely comprehended that he was
being questioned concerning his father ,
who was to ln given the pension of a
hundred and lifty francs , having been in
service for forty years. Then thu secre
tary's voice became harsh. He repri
manded him , licensing him of
himselt with politics. An illusion was
made to his lodger ; also llio saving fund.
tm.illy he advised him not to mix himself
up in these .altiiirtt , he was ono of the
best workmen in the mines. He wished
to protest , but could only utter a few 1111-
connected words , twisting Ins cap be
tween hi.s febrile iingeia as ho retired
"Certainly , Mr. SeereUry. You're
right Mr , Secretary. "
Outside , when ho had nipiin j lined
Anton who was waiting lor broke
out :
"I'm u fool. I ouirht to have been able
to say something. Not enougn money to
buy bread , and abi'so bcs des Yes ,
