by Tommy. About this time Htiilller.
Barclay and others who are working to
gether, decide it is time to make use of
Celestla, who has been trained to tnlnk
ot herself as divine and oome from
heaven. The first place they send her is
to Htuman, a mining town, where the
coal miners are on a strike. Tommy lias
gone there, too, and Mra. Ounsdorf, wife
ths miners' leader, falls in love with him
and denounces him to the men when he
spurns her. Celestla saves Tommy from
being lynched, and also settles the strike
by winning over Kehr, the agent of ths
bosses, and, Barclay, sr. Msry Black
stone, who Is also in love with Tommy,
tells him the story of CelesUs, which she
has discovered through her jnalousy.
Kehr is named as candidate for president
on a ticket that has milliter's support,
snd Tommy Barclay is named on the
miners ticket. BUlllter professes him-
self in lova with Celestla and wants to
get her for himself. Tommy urges her
to insrry him. Mary Blackstone bribes
Mm. Qunsdorf to try to murder Celestla,
while the latter is on her oampaigg tour,
traveling on a snow white train. Mrs.
Qunsdorf is again hypnotised by Celestla
and the murder averted.
BUlllter hyrotises Celestla and lures her
Into a deserted woods, where he forces
her to undergo a mock marriage, per
formed by himself. He notifies the tl
umvlrate that Celestla is not coming
hank. Freddy the Ferret has followed
him closely, and Tommy is not far away,
havirg ben exploring the cave, hoping
to find Celestla ths re.
Seven high arched steps Prof. BUlllter
took before he dared once more to put
Ma hand to tha ground, and crawl. It
was as well. One more step would have
taken him over a little precipice.
Wherever the went tha fire found him
out and drove him on. A strong wind
had risen, and aa tha flame "winnowed
their way down the mountain aid and
across they found mors and larger stuff
to feed on.
Prof. BUlllter got heart every now and
then. His hands and knees war lacer
ated, his fax had soma hard knocks. His
blind eyes smarted wttb smoke, and the
air which ha breathed half choked him.
Ha came at last to tha forest and tha
fire followed him and drove him. Some
times it would aeem to htm that It had
taken a different direction and that ha
was by way of escaping from It. It al
ways ended, however, by finding Mm out,
and driving htm forward. For while ha
could keep hla distance easily: then for a
while ha would have to hurry. It was
during these that he got Ms worat hurts.
But his natural strength and stamlni
coupled With tha furious desire to live,
kept him going. Onoe despair of saving his
Ufa seised htm. and there cam Into hie
head the desire to .meet death In a manly
and dignified way. "I will stand here,"
ha said, '"until I burn." And he stood and
squared hla shoulders and. held hla bat
' tered and bleeding head high and erect.
But when tha heat became ao intense that
hla clothes began to give out smoke, ha
turned once mora and fled.
To a man with average sight It would
have teen an easy matter to hava eluded

To His Delight, Freddie Finds Tommy with Celestla ,

mlsfortuno that he had beeen unable to
sidestep It. By taking up hla original
stand at the hack of the hut. Instead of at
the front, ho need not have moved until
Even now old man Bmellsgood was
standing at a comfortable distance from
the red hot ruins of tha hut and wonder
ing what fool had set It on fire and why.
Through tha forest Itself tha fire was
only burning a broad path, confined to
'this by" open barrens and swamps or hy
timber too green and wall watered . to
burn. From the mouth of the cave It
looked like a receding column ot sinok.
and there waa no real menace in It for
anyone but Prof. BUlllter. Him it hounded
on and on. And now- continually, like a
child that babbles, he was asking God
to save him, Christ to pity him.
As he lost blood, his progress became
slower and slower and death stared him
In tha back. He was to hava one short
reprieve. Ha came to a gravelly bank
so steep that In trying to get down it ha
began to slide, could not save himself
and waa dumped presently into ice cold
For a moment the shock refreshed and
Invigorated him and gave blm hope. Ha
could ' swim and water cannot burn.
Whether ha was In a pond or a lake
of some sise he did not know. If a lake
and not very large he could awtm across
and at least find safety from the fire.
At first it was easy to swim in the
right direction, guided by the heat that
came from behind, but after a while it
was not ao easy.
He waa a good swimmer and while
floaUng and treading water he managed
to get rid of his shoes and most ot his
clothes. ' Ha would need them when he
got ashore. Tea, but he would hava to
do without them.
Ha began to tire again and there was
no sign of tha opposite shore.
He was In one of the narrowest lakea
In that part of the Adlrondacks. but it
waa several miles long and ha waa trying
to swim it from end to end. The jig was
When he realised this he hastened the
Inevitable by screaming and screaming
and then by bursting Into tears and sob

He floated in the water with his face

face from tha corners of hla mouth.
Twice he drew up his knees and kicked

After a long time Freddie the Ferret,
leading Celeatla aa If she had been blind,
blundered to the foot ot the cliff In which
was tha main entrance to the cave, Into
this ha penetrated a little way and there
began to shout for Tommy with all hla
might The only response was the echoing
of his voice.
So Freddie went back to Celestla, and
there she stood with a bewildered pus
sled look on her face and both her hands
being held by Tommy Barclay himself,
who waa breathing aa if he had been run

"Don't look pussled now, Celestla,"
Tommy waa saying, "you know me. It's
all right. I'm the driver, you know and
you have to obey the driver. Bo wake up.
Then Celestla spoke.
"The driver," she said, "is dead, Prof.
BUlllter told me."

how difficult stage beginnings are. Once
you have secured a position .the long

you to ths breaking point. Chorus work
will not help your voice. Why not keep
up your work and strive at the same
time to secure a church position or get
a few concert engagements? In a church
choir your voice would get additional
training, and either there or In concert
