Hayes began, when Slade Interrupted.
“Look here, Hayes—I want a di
vorce," and be seated himself squarely
in front of the astonished Hayes.
"T hat's w hat I want,” and hla lips
sh u t grimly.
"But. my God!" Hayes was amazed.
"You didn't w ant It in the first place.
All you wanted was to live your own
Ufa. Do you expect me to help you
get rid of Mrs. Slade? '
"D on't go crazy,” Slade advised, not
a suggestion of feeling evident in his
voice o r manner.
"If you do you are due for a su r
prise. I can 't go sticking a knife Into
th at wom an’s heart. 1 won’t."
"You’re a h—1 of a law yer!" Slade’s
anger was rising.
'i 'm not th a t sort of a law yer,”
Hayue rose as if to dism iss the sub
"W hatever sort of a law yer you are
I m ade you, Hayes.”
"1 know you did," returned Hayes,
bitterly. "You've told me th at before
and this Is what comes of letting a

"You bet, rank Ingratitude,” hotly.
Hayes leaned forward, his arm s on
hts knees and looked Slade square in
"I honestly think you're drunk with
all this power and prosperity. T hat
little woman was the apple of your
eye. I alw ays said to m yself: 'T here's
one man who does stick to his w ife!’
I didn't beUeve wild horses could drug
you away from home—”
"One m inute!" Interrupted Slade.
"All th at has nothing to do with you.
N either you nor anyone living can
in terfere with me now. Have you
stopped to figure out, and I say it with
all kindness and with all respect, what
sort of a governor’s lady Mrs. Slade
would make, feeling as she does?”
"W ell, what so rt of a governor
would you m ake if you were di
vorced?” Hayes questioned, mock
ingly. "Those men In there,” and he
Jerked his thum b toward the sm ok

"T hey’ve got to—I own them, boots
"But you don’t own public opinion,"
thundered Hayes, banging hts fist
down on the table, scattering the
copies of the senator's speech in all
"Why don’t I?" Slade questioned
with an arrogant smile disfiguring his
mouth. “I’m going to buy half of
M erritt's paper tonight. I guess th at
will be public opinion enough for me.
More than that, I'll stand as a man
whose wife has deserted him. T h at's
how it will end. Mrs. Slade will de
cide where sh e ’s to live—but it m ust
be a t some distance."
“You won’t get your divorce
through desertion.” Hayes scoffed. “I
know her. You can 't do it."
"I can't do it, eh?" Slade's eye«,
held a nasty expression.
“T h at’s
w hat they’ve been telling me all my

little b rat running around th e mines'
they’ve said to m e: 'You can't do
this and you can 't do th a t.’ But I
alw ays did it. L et me tell you, young
man, after all I’ve conquered no wom

“C an’t do It, eh?” he repeated, pug
naciously. “ You watch me do it! You
I’m as good as
deserted now. The only question is:
Are you going to see Mrs. Slade—put
her aboard a train east or not?”
“Mrs. Slade has been my best
friend,” Hayes answ ered quietly. "I
love her dearly—I—” his voice broke.
"All right. T hat settles It. You
turn over every scrap of paper of mine
you have by”—he thought a m oment—
"by tomorrow night. Then you can
walk the ties to the devil, young man,
and go back w here 1 found you.”
As Hayes turned to go, Strickland

INDOLENCE A NATIONAL TRAIT
W hat Are Known as “Leanera” De-
cldedly In the Majority Among
the Natives of Mexico.
"Mexican Indolence has always had
som ething to do with making Mexlcau
national history," said a traveler.
"Mexico has a class of natives called
'leaners' from th eir habit of leaning
against the side of a building to roll
a cigarette. Once in this position the
leaner adheres to it for hours.
“Tradition declares th a t a Mexican
leaner qpce sued an American railroad
builder for pulling down a building
ag ain st which the plaintiff had beea
leaning. Damages were awarded for
severe shock and inconvenience, and
the court took occasion to recommend
a law requiring one hour s notice un
der sim ilar circum stances.
"Mexican m ilitary forces are to
some extent recruited from leaners.
Mexican history has record of an
insurgent force which was being
pushed forward victoriously when it
cam e to a stream which had swollen
over night. The general was a leaner
He bivouacked to w ait till the stream
should subside, but it did not subside
and he withdrew. He could easily have
bridged a narrow cascade less than a
mile from his cam p, but th a t would
have required a fresh Initiative, which
has no place in the practical philos
ophy of a leaner
"B ut he succeeded, anyhow, because
hie adversary was also a leaner.

force cam e back, crossed without op
