Again tbo humpbacked priest was
cautioned about the work ne had in

and over again to bo very careful,
ho took his leave.
And Olga, duke of Tula, was left
alone with his own thoughts. Bet
ter for him had that wicked priest
been his executioner. Hotter for
him had ho been upon tho count's
bed, rucked with- dying pains. Hot
ter for him hnd he been a poor pun

better for him liud ho been the
meanest beggar that walked the
earth than what he was! Uut ho
did not realize this. Ilo had a goal
ahead, ond ho tried to ovorlookjtha
black, dreadful gulf that yawnedrbe
tween him and it.
A STRANGE M.XVERT.
The news wont out that the
Count Conrad Damonofl mtint die.
A few days licfore tho best surgeon
in Moscow said ho would recover,
but now that same surgeon said ho
must full. A strange change had
come over him. It was not a fever,
but, rather, a consuming of vitality,
lie was failing fast, and no art of
medicine could revive him. Somo
thought he must lie bleeding inward
ly, but others knew better than this,
because in that case there would be
some outward symptom. Tho wound
itself wa9 herding, but the disease
was not. The physician anil the
priest were now in daily, and the
former almost in hourly, attend
ance. The Fiirgeon was Kopani,
and the priest was the humpbacked
Thus lay the count upon his bed,
weak and faint, but at present al
most free from pain, and an old wo
man was his only attendant, the
prioft having just left. It was lust
after noon. The dying man had
just taken a powerful stimulating
draft, though it was against the in
junctions of the priest, as ho said
that riy such means tho invalid
might die liorcft of sense and thus
lose his hold nnon salvation. Ho
had just taken this draft when there
was a low nip upon the door. The
woman arose to answer tho sum
mons. She conversed A few mo
ments with the girl who had knock
ed, and when she returned to the
bod she announced that Ruric Ne
Tcl wished to enter.
"Let him come in," whispered
"Never mind," he interrupted as
tho woman commeneoil thus to ex
postulate. "Let him eomo in. By
heavens, if he is my enemy let me
see him 1 It may-serve to arouse
So the woman went to the door
again, and soon afterward Ruric
Novel entered the apartment. Ho
stepped lightly, noiselessly, to the
ocusluc, out It wtla Kouiu momenta
ero ho could distinguish objects by
tho subdued light of tho place. By
and by, however, ho overcame tho
difficulty, and ho started back in
horror as ho beheld tho features of
his adversary. 1 low pale and sunk
en 1 ' How deathlike and ghastly I
Tho count noticed tho movement,
and ho noticed tho look.
"Count Damonoll," spoko the
gunmaker in a low, solemn tone, "a
few days since I heard that you were
recovering, and I ' thunked God.
But today they told mo you were dy
ing, and I have' como to abk that I
may tako your hand ero you pass
away from earth. As God is my
Maker and my Judge, I would rath
er lio down hero and dio for you
than have you pass away with a
curso of mo upon your soul or on
your lips. Forgivo mo for what I
have done and never again will I en
gage in such a wicked work. For
my own life, it is my country's and
my mother's and I have no right to
throw it away, and my antagonist's
life is tho sacred property of God,
which I havo no right to touch but
in self defense. Forgive me."
Slowly and heavily moved the dy
ing man over, and then ho extend
ed his thin and wasted hand.
"Ruric," ho said, and his voice
was" stronger now, for tho potion
was working, "I am glad you have
come very glad for I have wish
ed, above all clso of earth, to see
you. I could not send fur you, for
I knew not how you' might como. I
havo been all wrong in tho things
that havo passed betwixt theo and
me. I was mad and a fool. .1 blamo
you not,, but rather do I thank you
for your kindness through all tho
scene. Oh, I forgivo you with all
my heart. . And now tell mo that I
am forgiven." ,
"Forgiven?" repeated Ruric, with
a trembling lip, still holding the
count's hand within both his own.
"Oh, would to God I could call you
back to life I Forgiven? Oh, God,
who reads all hearts, knows how
humble, how sacred, is my forgive
ness to you 1 Could I call you buck,
could I wipe out tho past from my
memory, I coidd dio content."
"Enough," returned 'tho count
warmly. ."This was my holiest wish,
though prido has kept back its ut
terance. Oh, I feared you would
gloat over my death that you
would bo glad when I was gone.
"No, no I r I should havo been a
monster then I"
- "Thcro are many such. And yet
I wronged you by tho thought. But
I could not help it."
A moment moro passed in silence,
and then the invalid resumed:
"There is ono reason why I should
like to live I should bo prepared
for a better life. Since Death has
come eineo I havo known that ho
stood waiting by my lied I have
wondered nt the evil life I have led,
and I havo thought that if the dark

''Then let the work lie done at
once say tonight."
"Tomorrow night, my lord, will
do as well, for I am engaged to
night." "Very well; let it bo tomorrow
night. But, mind, this is settled.
There is no moro question about
this affair. When I seo yon again, I
trust you will havo no reason to of

"You need have no fears on that
hpad, my lord. You may consider
that the gunmaker is dead."
"Right I So let it be."
And thus did the wicked duke dis
pose of Ruric Novel.
Again Olga took a turn across the
room, and when ho stopped there
was a dark cloud upon his brow.
"Savotano," ho said, "there is one
more man whom I at least would bo
assured is not in rny way. I mean

has been grounded on tho sure foun

the stock of eoods. The men who
first came to realize the qualities of
the stock in hand set about promot

triumph for the modern Idea of pub
Now, if you grasp the full Import

The outreauhing of this idea U m

In tbe nature of things, you and 1
have not been so situated as to make

It is the common fault with most
people to lose sight of the true relic
tions of the newHpsper to the com
munity in which it is published.
Recauso of its semi-public charac
ter, because it exerts itself to further
the Intercuts of the community at
large, it comes to be looked oh as a
sort of public proMrty. The good
offices of a paper In behalt of a com
munity come to be taken as a mattor
of conn e.
I do not proKHo to discuss, the
ethics of the case, becauRii there is a
great deal to lie said, pro and con,
but it will pay you to lake the repre

and go over It pige by pago, with
tbe idea constantly In mind that that
paper Is the private property the
bread-earner for its nwuer.
If you live in a city of 60,000 peo
ple or less, my point will bo mure
obvious than It will be In a larger
city, although the same observation
holds good : Any newspaper which
is what it pnrports to be In the com
munity in which it is published, is
an insistent promoter of the Interests
of that community.
There are newspapers galore lu
every section of the country, but it is
my contention that tho newspapers
of Western America have done more
to develop the territory In which
they are published than has been
done by the papers in most other
It would be easy by instituting
comparisons lietween the more im
portant dailies west of tho Itocky
Mountains with tho diilica in cities
of tbe same size east of the Rocky
Mouutains, to show pretty conclu
sively that our large dailieegivea
more complete service in every fea
ture than do the eastern dailies.
Not only Is their service interests
of local readers more complete, but
many of them have attained to posi
tions of such Influence that their edi
torial expressions are looked for by
other sections of the country.
This fact has secured for these ja
pers a place in the newspaer world
and has made them of inestimable
value to our section, because it hss
given them a broader circulation and
more careful reading than is ordi
narily accorded to papers of like
It has consequently enhanced
many fold the advertising value of
Our imsrtant papers give much
more attention to development news
to write-ups of our advantages, to
illustrations of our commercial enter
prises, to articles bearing on business
openings and possible investments;
they give much more space to all
this kind of matter lhau the same
sort of a daily In the east.
This is tho reason that they have
ben so valuable to their section.
This Is the reason that I feel that
our important newspapers are in an
altogether different class from the

This phase of the matter has been
very much neglected In most com
munities. Sometimes a board of

seen to it that a curtain number of
