He bad been lured into politics in s previous campaign, where he seemed to perceive a moral Issue and had greatly assisted In tbe election of • man wbo subsequently proved to be • knave. Strickland was a big, hand some fellow, with the voice of a tram pet and a sharp wit; his crisp phrases caught the ear and were remembered and repeated; be codid pin a charac terization upon an adversary so that it would stick. , But Strickland waa not favored by "the machine" and wonld never have been nominated except in one of those "I HAVS HAD IT IK MT MIHD TO WAR* TOD." emergencies' In which It Is necessary to name a clean man on the normally dominant side in order that the minor Ity may not accomplish a political up beural. It is doubtful that there ever waa a man more thoroughly disgusted with the general principle of what la called "graft" tban Strickland. In his private affaire be bad been poisoned by it, smotbered In It. and be bad come to a furious belief that tbe only proper way to treat u grafter was with the toe of tbe boot. The bare mention of a bribe excited in bis mind the idea of personal violence. His chief inheritance had been a share in a lithographing establishment Tbe elder Strickland bad been a part ner in this business, but in the last of bis life had withdrawn from active management because of ill bealtb. and the affairs of the Arm had fallen into a very bad way. After bis father's death Morton Strickland tried to do something for the business. He went Into It with unbounded enthusiasm, but small experience, and for-a time he suffered from a great perplexity. There WHS an Inexplicable reason why nothing could be done It took Strick land more tban a year to discover that the whole establishment from top to bottom was honeycombed with brib ery; everybody In It waa either the beneficiary or tbe victim of some form of graft * • When Strickland came to realize that this was tbe business which bad been in part bla father's be could have wept with rage and shame. He made a fierce and futile Struggle and waa finally forced to sell bis Interest upon very disadvantageous terms, for be waa dealing with seasoned tricksters, and they bad tbe apper band of him. One result of this experience was that be took op tbe study of law. for be bad been worsted partly through ignorance of his own legal rights. He bad just been admitted to the bar when be was elected to the sssembly. There was In Albany a man named Leroy Wendell, wbo had been a friend of Btrlckland's father, though consid erably bis Junior. He waa in a quiet way of practice, lived modestly and seemed to find his pleasure in bis home, in good books snd tbe com pany of cultivated people. He offered Strickland tbe freedom of bis offlce. the use of bis library, and tbe hospitality of his home whenever tbe young man should care to coma. At tbe first glance the Wendells' style of living seemed to savor of tbe miserly: their boose was small, they kept bat one servant, aad the sim plicity and openness of their econo mies had an air of something very near to affectation. Mm Wendell aad two daughters completed the family. Tbe elder of tbe children waa her fa ther's etenograpber; the younger was still at school. A high average of personal bagaty distinguished this family. Strickland's first feeltng was of to tsrsst a men sense of pleasurable novelty wWeb developed Mo admin* ta la flaw ro teo^betl turned toward It of an srfeniat tbe day*a evil aeemed to fall away fM him. and be left it always with foot though ta.

In this emergency be con sulted Mr. Wendell, wbo advised him that be must not default In any pay ment True enough, but where ahould be get the money? Mr. Wendell thought he might be able to help the young man In securing a loan. and. tbongb Strickland was very unwilling to Accept this favor, be eventually did so. Tbe money waa advanced by a friend of Mr. Wendell, an old lawyer now retired from practice and sup- j posed to bo entirely disengaged from active affaire. His name waa Curtis B. Connor. Meanwhile an Interesting situation bad sprung up In tbe halls of legisla tion. Members were going about bright eyed and eager, and tbe older ones woto talking of tbe "good old. days." It waa a measure wltb money on both 'bides of It Tbe usual thing In these daya Is for the money to be on one side and the public- on the oth er. But In this Instance there was a battle of the giants, extremely doubt ful In laaue. and a member wbo de sired to be "Influenced" could look In either direction. v Tbe fight centered In tbe asaembly. That waa where the byahwbacklng was being done. Storle* of bribery tilled tbe air, but Strickland aeemed .to be Immune. He had been Intro duced to a great many lobbyist!, rang ing from seeming respectabilities to the lowest of created bipeds; but thougb some of tbese persons "sound ed" bim in a rather crude way. be received no direct propoaltloo. And In tbe midst of all this he was utterly In doubt at to bin proper course—confuted by rumors,. blinded by his own Inexperience wltb large affairs and unable to decide In which direction lay the public Interest. Two powerful ayndlcateo were fighting for and against tbe measure, and tbeee. from tbe names of two lesser figures In the legal talent of the lobby, be came known as tbe black ring and tbe white ring. Strickland bad carried his doubts to Wendell, who at first shared tbem, but on a certain evening tbe two men aat late before an offlce fire In the lawyer's bouse, and as a result of their conversation Strickland came to a decision. As a choice of evils he would vote upon the white side, for so Wendell advised him wltb argu ments that aeemed excellent On tbe second day following a little after noon Btrickland waa passing through a corridor of ths statebouao wbeu be met a veteran axsemblymun named Stuart Porter, a courtly, hand some man. who had treated tbe new member wltb consideration and bad been of conaiderable belp to bim. Porter bad taken no active purt In tbe debate on what was known as tbe black and white bill. His true atti tude was unknown to Strickland, wbo had often been upon the point of ask ing his advice. Tbey paused for a moment's talk, and It seemed to the younger man tbat the other regarded him strangely; there was a certain audness in hla man ner. Strickland was of a busty tem per and Impatient of mysteries. It wus his habit to speak atruigbt out. "Wbut Is the matter?" said ha "Have 1 offended you In any way?" Tbe old gentleman started aome what with surprise at this abrupt quea tton, and his face hardened, but in a moment relaxed Into a very kindly expression. "If you were keen enough to see that." said be, "I wonder that you have been ao easily deceived in other matters." "What matters?" said Strickland. **l have bad It ta my mind to warn you several times," said tbe other, "but you carry your bead rather high for so young s man. It seemed to me tbat perhaps you needed a lesson. Yon will vote upon what we call the wblte side this afternoon, I suppose?" "Such Is my intention." "And the loan from Curtis B. Con nor was. I believe. $2,0007" "What do you mean?" demanded Strickland, but gently, for tbe other's manner impressed bim. **Mr. Wendell secured It for yo«* ssld Porter. "Mr. Wendell has repre sented tbs Interests thst srs back of the white ring to Albany for twenty years.** ( • "1 don't believe it! Why. tho man Is poor." "Ho seems so." "Seems? Do you know how simply he lives) Are yon swsre thst his daughter serves him ss secretary r "Mr. Wendell nseds s secretary whom he caa trust'* answered Porter There, tbere!

Strlcklaad was dazed, sad before he touid frame a reply tbe gresp wss la. creased by several aua. to the prss snce of some of whom bo did not care to spesk. Tbe suggestion of tbe com mlttoo room stack la his a»lad. Ho weat there, and tbs room being emp ty. be paced tho toor with a wild free dom. Hs ssw dearly enough tbat Wendell had dapad htm. aad all bla long cherts bsd wrath against tbe crime of bribery rose sp to fire to bis heed. A masssngsr entered tbe room sad gave Strickland a latter. It bad been opened. He glanced at tbe envelope aad aaw that It waa-one of Mr. Wen dell's sad wss sddrsssed to Curtis B. Connor. It snmid right to read It, ftr this mast ha the document to which Bock wall had referred. The letter waa typewritten and It ran upon tbe. second j GRAHAM, N.C., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2,1911. Iluge anu was signed by Wendell. In tbe boldest terms It outlined to Con nor the scheme of the loan, tbe money really to be furnished by the backers of the white ring for the purpose of clinching Wendell's influence over Strickland nnd securing his vote. Strickland crushed tbe letter In bis hand and rushed out ot the room. Ho went straight to Wendeil'a offlce. Lau ra was there, and he put the letter Into her bands. ——L "Read it." said be. and abe. alarm- . ed. drew out tbe letter from tbe envoi ope. 0 Sbe read about half tbe firat page 1 ' and then turned to tbe second and i li stared at ber father's algnature.

Then he stood erect, his face contorted, yet when be spoke his voice wan calm. "If I bad not found you here." be said, "I should have gone back to the capltol and voted as those devils planned to make me. I should have voted against your father'a advice, be lieving that be had tried to bribe me. There aball be a reckoning for thla." "Let me read the letter as It was," sbe said. It Is needless to ssy thst Its purport was entirely Innocent and that It made no reference whatever to ths bisck snd white bill. All tbst waa on tbe aubstl tuted first page which tbe couapirators bad got up after ateallng the original letter from Connor's offlce. "1 don't ask you to forgive me. I-au ra." nald Strickland, "und I won't lie to you. I believed this miserable lie. I have seen so much evil! How can 1 believe in good? But wait. Porter and Hock well shall pay for this." "You can do nothing." said she. "Tbey are old men; you cannot fight tbem pbynically. And what else can you do? Tbey will deny ever having spoken to you on tbe subject. You cannot prove tbat this forged letter came from tbem. You can accuse tbem publicly, hut they will laugh at you. I advise von to ignore tbe whole mat ter." This wax more than Strickland's tem per would permit blui to do; far mors, "BSSI ASS THK Kursa." SAID SBB. Indeed, tbau tbe girl desired, for abO was ax angry as lie wax and argued wltb him only to dissuade him from actual physical violence, in tbia sbe succeeded, and yet Strickland man aged lo pay both Porter and Rock well In full before be was done with tbem.

A PICTURE ONjGLASS By ALLAN C CARLYLE Copyright by American Press Asso ciation, 1911. The residence of the Count Van Ars dale at Rotterdam, Holland. Is a very old one. Indeed. It waa standing when the first Dutch settlers bought Man hattan island for 124. In recent times David uoe of tbe Van Arsdale family, came to New York to make a home there, but be did not remain long. There were two reuaoua for his re turn to Holland. Flretly. he waa la love with a member of another branch of tbe family, Anneke Van Arsdale, the daughter of the man wbo the title and tbe Van Arsdale manor house. Secondly, there waa a tradition that David Van Arsdale was tbe real count The title and eatates had paased from Davld'a great-grandfather to an ances tor of Anneke's, and It had never been clear bow tbe tranaactlon came about David believed that Anneke's father knew something about It. but tbe count would not admit that he did. Wben David first came courting Anneke ber father favoied the suit but a very wealthy auKor having' aaked for her hand, tbe count feeling that money waa needed in tbe family, favored tbo latter. Anneke would not wed him and would not accept David without ber father'a consent There appearing to be no hope that tbe count would relent. David deter mined to go back to America. He nei ther could nor would deprive tlw girl be loved of bin prospective possessions, and since she must eventually pasa to another, be did not wish to bo near ber. The night before he was to sail be waa sitting In tbe great square ball wblcb was once used by tbe Dutch for a living room, making hla laat visit to Anneke preceding bis departure. The lovers were very deapondent "I believe." said David. "that ths reAson your father first favored our union is that bo believes me to be tbe rightful heir to tbe title end satatee be Is now enjoying." - "Why do yon think that, David?" asked tbe girl. "Because there are tboae wbo any tbat I am There lias alwnjs been s mystery connected with the dentb of uiy great grandfather. Jobu Van Ars dale. and the assumption of tbe title by Henry. It Is well known that Hen ry's mlud was subsequently affected, and It Is rumored that ibia came from remui-se." "Hut father baa nothing to do wltb that." "No; but if there wss fraud In tbs change of the title snd eetsles from bit ancestor to mine I am tbe real Count Van Arsdale. If I married you tbe two branches of the family would be united and the fraud. If atyy. would not matter. Tbat. I believe. Is the reason for your father's willingness st first, becauae there la no other reaaon. I am poor, and you need a rich bna band." At this moment something slngulsr happened. Winding about the ball to the upper story was s atalrcase. Mid way. where tbe stslrcsss turned st right anglea wltb tbs lower snd upper parts, waa a window. It wss of curi ous construction, tbe glass being of different thicknesses in different parts. It had been there no one know how long, and no one knew why an ordinary window or one of stained glass bsd not been placed tbere In Ita atead. At this time electricity was first converted Into snd utilized ss light Tbe searchlight bsd Just been Invent ed. and soine electricians wore experi menting wltb one of thom oo tbs roof of s neighboring building. Suddenly tbe window mentioned was brilliantly illuminated. David and Anneke look ed st It In sstonlsbmont. lost sad of being ordlnsry white gisss. It wss A picture— a picture in bisck snd whits such ss we now sse banging ta win dows thst tbe light may bring out tbe scene. And tbe subjsct, s man lo tbs Dutch costume of the old en time, Isy on his back bestridden by another man wbo bad plnaged s dagger Into his heart Below were tbe words: "The Murder of Henry. Count Tsn Arsdale." A mystery was explained by s mys tery. Tbe window till tbat moment bad been a blank. The Invention of tbs searchlight bad revealed what it contained. Hut wbo many years bo fore bad learned to make a picture oa glass? And what light did bo two to bring It out? For bow could ho bsve made It without seeing It? One fact of Its bslag tbere at sll might be explained by tbe fsct tbst tbe mur derer brooded over bis crime unUI be lost bis res son snd placed It tbere while a monomaniac. While tbe lovers looked tbe picture disappeared as Instantaneously as It hnd sprung Into being. Then Anneke covered her eyes wltb ber banda. "I am descended from s murderer,"* sbe said. "AU thst fotber pass.ssm Is yours." Dsvld did not ssll for America tbs next day. Workman came In. took oat tbe glaes to tbs window snd replaced It with a stained ooe. Tbea came a wedding between David aad Anneke. sad tbe count bavtag no male Issue, surrendered his title to his son-to-isw snd his estatae to bla daughter.

Instead of arranging tbe uaual kind of din ner—with spick-and-span tattles, a profusion of knives aad forks, aggressive and unnecessary wait ers and a series of indigestible dishes with French names—the committee provided a "beefsteak dinnfer" at a famous restaurant.
