The wife of the miners' leader involves
Tommy In an escapade that iPHds the
miners to lynch him. CeLstta saves him
from the mob, but turns from him and
goes to see Kehr.

Do you know what I'd do If any one

Ho had come out for Olestla's policies.
And because of his very primness and
stubbornness his late enemies began to
pro that he would he a tower of strength
to any cause which ho shonld espouse.
In that town, where a. week ago his life
would not have been worth a moment'a
purchase, he was already being talked
of aa the next United State senator from
; Pennsylvania. . .
Special correspondents had begun to
i flock Into Bitumen. Many who came to

ment, and began presently to number
themselves among the faithful.
Stop a moment and try to realize the
power for good or evil, the collective
. power, of the newspapers of America. If
they are not the whole voice of the peo-
' pie, they are alone that part of it which
can make itself heard. Suppose soma
one man could get control of that voice,
and make It speak loud and bold for his
own purposes, he would be such a dic
tator. uch a "man on . horseback," . aa
the world baa not yet seen. The news
papers united could elect any man they
please. They could elect a man taken
for the purpoae from a lunatic asylum.
They could even elect Bryan. They
could make us as a people think exactly
what they please and when they please.
They could turn us over night into a
war-loving nation bent upon a world
conquest, or they could turn us Into the
' supine Jellyffeh that many well-adver-tlsod
men who call themselves Americans
would bave us.
Tom could conjure up to yourself a
hoary night marlsh monster out of the
newspapers united. But the newspapers
will never become the wicked or benef
icent monster of might. Borne will al
ways continue to speak for the foolish,
some for the wise; some, one thing on
'ay and the other thing the next. Even
hut divided, great is their power. ..
If w have any wisdom as a cation, w
e it to the newspapers. Likewise we
e it to them that we are not always
' it or on the ld of righteousness.
Celestia then began to develop strength
f in the newspapers. he was to develop
I so much before her course was run as la
hardly believable. Already the idea of
changing our government was no longer
a news headline, but a d.fintt and by
r.o mean uncomfortable thought In the

tested the thought because It was new;
others welcomed and embraced It becauso
It-was new. Still others, and in the end
these became hsr most powerful sup
porters, took- some such attitude as this:
-"You may arguo for the new gospel:
you may argue acrainet It. You may call
It treason; you may tall it progress; but
when all la said and done certain facts
will shine out clear as crystal.
"As a people we ought to be happy;
we are not. Millions who ought to be
clean and healthy ' are Jlrty and sick.
There is enough money for everybody.
A very small portion of this Is in the
hands of the efficient few; the rest is
nowhere, l.elng lost, wasted, thrown overboard.

tion) having '"conntrAiCted . a- very-.largo

Celestia was no Frankenstein, but Frof
Stllllter no longer found In her the 'apt
and docile pupil of earlier days. He
found It harder and harder to control
her. More and more she thought for her
self. The reason for this failure In his
power over her was not far to seek. He
loved her with a love that he found dolly
more difficult to keep in bounds. To
control another person's mind great con
centration Is necessary. Now, the state
of love makes It almost Impossible to
concentrate upon any other state. So,
when Prof. StlUiter would be trying to
will Celestia to say precisely so and so
to an audience, the halt of his 'mind
would be concentrated upon her beauty
(joyouslyV upon her desirability, (gloat
ingly),, upon, his love for her (ardently)
and upon her dislike for him (with fury
and hatred of those whom nhe liked
much). Consequently she didn't always
say or do precisely what we willed her
to say and do. Still, she had been' under
his sway' for so many years that It was
only natural for her to think upon as
many subjects as he thought. And, In
deed, Celestla's oratory was finer on the
new basis for self-inltatlve, and she had
more power on the minds of those who
listened to her.
If StlUiter could have been entirely
eliminated from her life, her life, at least
for a time, must have gone on very much
as It was going on. She believed firmly
In what she preached. She believed that
she came from heaven, and that she had
come ,to make the world better, safer to
life. In, cleaner and happier.
Tommy argued with her so Incessantly
and often so Intolerantly that If she
hadn't been in love with the mere sound
of his voice, she couldn't have stood It.

they are full of upset They make out a

we may account for them they ar there;
und of whatever benefit they may be to
us If we overcome them, they will over
come us if we are not In our heart so
braced as to show more resistance to
thar.x than they can show to us.
. You young' men ran call that preach
ing, or you can call It moral science or
psychology, or by such other name at
yon prefer; it la a' frank, unvarnished
statement of th fact In your case, and
In every rase. What w call being
"brought up" is the process of having
wrought Into us those impulses toward
upright living and earnestness of purpose
which shell be sufficient to counteract
the opposing Influence that assault us
It is because so msny young men havs
never had this done for them, and have
never had any home-made equipment
given them with which to enter success
fully Into lire's battle, that they suc
cumb to th hostile Influences that begin
early to arsail them, and ultimately de
feat them. They are not ready for life
for the simple reason that their parents
have not gotten them ready. And If their
parents have not dune it for them they
must do It for themselves or fall down.
You cannot live a strong life If you
are capitalised by nothing but moral
weakness. You must he possesnv-d ot
personal stamina or you are done fur.
Even without that you will continue to
exist, but existing Is not living. To rlne
In the morning, go to bed at night, eat
three meals between times and earn
enough dollars during the day to pay for
food, drinks, cigars and amusements,
some of them reputable and some '
them questionable. Is not a program th '.

Idrals. or that at all satlsflea the rlgh'
eon demands made upon you by th
times In which you live.
If your parents have not Instilled th t

of moral principle your career will be tt

Character Is foundation. I.lf require
to have foundation a much a any other
structure, something at the bottom upon
which the rest I built. That la what
will support the stability to all the rest
of your acquisitions. Without tt you can
not rely upon yourself, neither can other
people rely upon you. They cannot ban c
upon you, In dealing with you they do net
know whether they are handling straw
or wrought Iron.
You cannot secure positions of trur t
from people that do not trust you, and
when they ask for credentials It Is t hut
they msy know whether back of your
name and your looks and your preten
sions there Is sterling moral stuff that
can be counted on, and that will not glv )
way when external strain or pressure Is
brought to bear upon It.
This will not only work to your owi
advantage, but la the fundamental means
by which you ran make yourself of -count

the world at large principally need Is
men of such recognised stamina a to
