When the fingers of rain on the window pane
Tap, tap, Up,
And the feet of the rain run over the roof
In the dark of a Bummer night.
Then out of their graves old memories creep
And they steal up Into the house of sleep
And they rap, rap, rap
On the door of the heart till It sets a light
And opens the portal and spreads the board
For the waiting horde.
Then the great, wide world seems all astir
With the ghostly shapes of the things that were.
A Pleasure that perished, a dead Despair,
An old Delight and a vanished Care,
A Passion that bullded its funeral pyre
From the worthless timber of brief desire,
A hope that wandered and lost its way
In the dazzling beams of its own bright ray,
With long-gone Worries and long-lost Joys,
Come stealthily creeping with never a noise
(For the things that have gone on the road to God
When they turn back earthward are silence-shod);
And they enter the hearts' great living room
When the rain beats down from a sky of gloom
In the dark of a Summer night.
And they tell old tales and they sing old songs
That are sweet, sweet, sweet;
"While the fingers of rain on the window pane
Beat, beat, beat.
And they feast on the past and drink its wine
. And call it a brew divine.
But when in the east the darkness pales
And the edge of the cloud shows light,
The ghosts go back with a silent tread.
And only the heart knows what they said
In the dark .of the Summer night.

Other trains were making whirlwind
tours of these United States. Not every
capitalist was on the side of capital. A
badly frightened and very able man In
the White House was fighting for his
political life. Into the arena there came
at last a dribbling of genuine patriots,
who, like their forefathers, were ready
to give for their country their lives, their
sacred honor.
It wasn't all smooth sailing by sny
means. Still, no new movement had ever
made such progress In so short a time,
and the end was not In sight, nor the
beginning of the end.
A man gaining In strength from day to
day, among those who stood for the old
order of things, and opposed Celestia,
was Tommy Barclay. He had a great
fervid quality of honesty which no one
could doubt, and he had to look on his
face, very lean now from short nights,
hard work and the ronstant buffeting
of trains, of a young hero who has st
himself to do to death a dragon that U

tune to have Celestia arrive from her
snow-white car and steal his audience
away from him. His "sea of upturned
faces" became a pool, with more than
half the faces turned away to try and see
what all the excitement was about
further down the street, and everybody
getting more and more restless and In
attentive. A sudden tremendous cheering
took the rest of Tommy's audience away
from him on the run, with the eiceptlon
of one young woman, who wore a thick,
brown veil and was half concealed by tin
stem of an elm.
For a moment or two Tommy did not
see her. His eyes were on the backs and
twinkling legs of his fast disappearing
audience, and there was a smile on his
face, half rueful resignation and half
amusement. He did not notice the woman
until she called sttentlon to herself by
"Pon't stop," she said: "they haven't

With an exclamation of pleasure
Tommy leaped down from his rostrum

Blaokstone," he exclaimed, "what tho

"I told you I came to hear you speak.
You are getting to be rather famous, you
know, and I thought It was iny duty
(her eyes sparkled under the veil) to
