A Story of Russian Power
It I a patch of sunlight a tiny
patch, mi larger than tb mlin of my
hand. 1 dreamily follow the bar of glis
tening mote upward, until my eje are
arrested by the crated window of a prta
on. In an Instant I have sprung front my
low pallet, where God Is pitiful! I
have leen sleeping away th lout few
hour of my mortal existence. I at.ind
here on my prion floor. In full toese
skw of nil my faculties, feeling the
warm, swift blood coursing In my xeina.
I full to pacing the narrow limits of
my oll with rapid stride. A burning
Impatience of inaction I consuming me
t pressing desire to lie doing sonte
thine to bridge over the minute w liioh
must elapse liefore the moment arrives
vihen 1 shall stride to the scaffold, with
dauntte min. to meet my doom. My
acute sen of hearing delect the clink
of the trap In my door. A pair of eyes
nre looking nt mo out of a brown, beurd
ol face, I smile and nod affably.
"Good morning, Vladimir Alejandro
vlteh. I am clad to see you In good
plrits," say my otUchtl.
"Ami I thank jou for yottr good
wish, my friend." I reply. "Hut my
breakfast? 1 toll jou. I have a aerce
hunger upon me. Iterueniber It will ho
the last time I shall have the pleasure
of gratifying my keen appetite, until I
take my flrt meal of nectar and amhro

My otrlcial laugh. "Keep your mind
easy, jour breakfast comet; and look
you," lowering hi voire. "Jut because
I love a brare spirit, little brother. I
trill ileprire myself of some caviar I
have In reserve for my own relish."
Thank, my Christian friend!" I rry.
reaching my html toward him through
the trap. "May you never die hungry.
One minute. Tell me. If you know if
yeu bare cen him the lad keep he a
good heart?"
My tolco shake In my eagern.
whilst I rifle my pockets for my Inst
five-rouble note. 'Take It. It U all J
hare, or I would give you more. I low
bear tip himself? He Ii but nineteen!"
"I iw him even now." renli the
, man, as he seUe the note. "He doe
badly. lie eati not. am) his strength ban

At these words the. sweat starts to my
brow, ami the water to my eyes.
"Friend, good friend," I whisper
hoarsely, "see him again! Toll him that
Vladimir Alexandrovitch bids him be
brate! Tell him to eat he must eat
ere be go forth!"
"I.kten. I will take your returnee,
just because you aro a brare one, and I
like you." ,
"I embrace thee, my brother!" I mur
mur fervently; and h hurris away.
I nm alone again, and continue mr
walk: but now- my mind Is troubled with
a vision of the fair-faced boy stretched
jfn bis pallet, and anon I seem to see bis
writhing body on the callows. I shud
der ami smother a groan that rise to
my Hps, ami turn to seek comfort in the
rotitctkm that It will soon be over for
him. "He U sure to falut. God grant
Approaching steps In the corridor. My
doer Is unlocked, thrown open, and here
Is my breakfast and the caviar. When
the official enters I wear a sinlllnc face
again, ror I nave a character to sus
tain. No man should bar it to say that
he saw a cloud on the brow of Vladimir
Alejiandmvltcb Lubauoff on the morning
of bis execution. The official Is wateh
Ing me curiously.
"How long now before the play be
gins, my friend?" I ask between the
It gratifies, me to note how be fluliM
red, and stares at me a apace, as If taken
aback. Wore he stammers, 'Twenty
minutes, Excellency."
I laugh. The notion of an omVlal
thrusting a title on a prisoner amuses
' me. After another prolonged stare he
leaven me.
Twenty minutes! Half an hour hence
I shall be a lump of cold, senseless c!ay.
And that mysterious actuating essence
we eall soul, what of It? What will be
come of It, forced from the tenement
M'herein It has, for twenty-seven years,
ruled supreme? Will It, too, be oxtln
guhhed like a torch that Is stamped out
under the foot of man? Away rain Hpto
ulatlon. Let me rather, In these my
last moments, aum up the good that has
been mine. I have tasted as much hap
piness an this world can offer, and I
leave it ere It begins to pnll. I have
known the rare Mousing of true friend
ship. ".My spirit file out to meet thee, O
my friend, and clasp theo In a farewell
embracel" I hove I still rejoice In the
beauty and perfect excellence of wom
an's pure mid entire love!
"Ah, my Manischa, thou' art my only
regret. Could I but tnko thee with me,
lay dovoj My better soul! for I know
that without me thy life henceforth will
bo but a Joyless groping through a val
ley where there Is no sin."
I nm surprised by a tear on my cheek,
and dash It hastily away. Itoom! It Is
the quarter bell sounding from the fort
ress clock. I closo my eyes, and grad
ually a eellng of peace descends on me.
Now I can pray. My bauds meet and
"Spirit of perfect Good, forgive me my
sins. Fortify we and my comrudes In
our last agony. Let the evil we hare
done perish with our bodies, and the good
return to dwell eternally with Thee!"
I hear the tramp of soldiery approach
lag. at4 raise my head.
".ManivcliH, thou shalt not bltiidi for
me'" I whisper, and 1 fM that It Ih a
radiant face I how them as they eHler.
I advance to meet my eeviitltiner, place
my arms in imwIHoii and silently mil. ink
to lie pinioned. Not n word In spoken,
and In a minute we are ready, and pass
lug In file along the corridor to loin the
others In the hall of the prlon.
1 cast a swift glance from face to face
of my fellow marOrs, which Ii answer
ed by n flh of recognition and greeting
from all save one, and that is poor Vwdl.
He Is n sorry spectacle; his blue ixyes mil
vaguely, without speculation: his ashen
llptt hang apart. A gendarme is sup
porting him.
We are -ide by side. "Vnsll!" I whis
per. He starts as If from some awful
dream. Our eye meet. He gle a
great rasp, seta his llw tightly, ami piilN
hittMelf toother, and I am suddenly
wheeled round and placed in the front.
rhen our last walk begins through
the court, out of the gates Into the great
open .pace, where straight In front ries
the long platform, and on It the gallows!
Sudden as a rlaah. a shock of horror
selaes me. Only now. with my terrible
down liefore u.y seeing ejes. do I fully
roallto It. To W hanged by the neck!
Merciful God. stand by me! Itut as
sudden my soul cries to my shrinking
lMdy. "What! Art going to fall mm T'
and 1 check the shudder that Is alre.uly
hohllng me. draw up my Udy to Its full
height and march steadily forward.
The slejw to the platform creak be
neath my heavy tread. I stand high
above the headi of the people, and over
loog them. Their thousand upturned
faces are like the white wavei of a
troubled ocean. Which is Marwhn's?
M eager glances skim the multitude in
search of it.
It Is there! Quite near me. I could
slnioit kiss It by bending far forward. It
la white. Ah! how while! but firm. The
eyos are full of (eiHlenie; they are
melting with love unspeakable, but they
are strong! Our hearts meet ami min
gle for one brief moment, then I tear
mine away. I have a word to say Wore
I die. I step forward to the edge of the
platform ami cry :
"Ilrothers. I repent not! I dlo Joy
fully for the cause of liberty."
The multitude stir ami murmur like
n forest of trees swayed by the wind.
The drums roll out In deafening al.
Already the executioner's hands are u -mi
me. I cast one last look around on Ms
ruseha, ami up at the sky.
Something Is pulled over my eyes. I
am hastily placed In position beneath the
gallows. A momentary paus. I fetd
with one excruciating thrill of horror
the touch of the looe rope on my ueek.
A stupendous shock as If a crashing blow
a noise as of many rushing waters In
my ears a feeling as if my head was
bursting asunder before my eys n mill
ion whirling planets, whilst I plunge
madly for a footing. Yet 1 do not die!
I srm to suffer an eternity of agony
Wcrw It givas place to stupefaction, and
I pass away.
' However, tt Is my otio chanoj, I must
try It. Ah wo nro In summer when the
nights urc short, It must hu (tie dead

I set my teeth, and raise mself with
my hands by the trace, thrusting out my
head and part of my shoulders. Then I
pause) lu gather up my force. Some
thing taps in.! croHU, making my In-art
leap to my mouth. It Is only the )

effort and my shoulders stick fast!
And now commences h fearful strug

In darkness, jet returning each time
w-itl greater confidence, until It flu illy
stay to feebly spread Itself from heart
to brain, ami I re a Hie that I am I.
I try to move, though It costs me an
effort. My Udy feel as If swollen to
an enormous site. I am oppressed for
space. I strive to make cllmw room.
What la this? I stretch out my sthTeu
ed arms, ami come In contact wlOi my
collln! From nil my pore tho cold
sweat Is bursting. My brain Is on tire
as recollection rushes upon me the fal
lows, ray death agony, and tha appalling
conilctlon that I have been cut down
too soon and bnrid alive!
In my wild anguish I fight out madly
with I Kith hands; but. strange, I fight the
air! 'Ill ere Is no lid, then, to my eomn!
I writhe myself Into a sitting posiure,
and there dawns for me a glimmer of
hope. Cautiously I begin to few! shout
me, growing every moment mora mysti
fied, for my hand come In contact with
n wooden surface, on which the eolHu
evidently stands. Though I am lu my
collln, I certainly nm not lu my grave!
A ray of light shoots suddenly from
behind me aero the gloom, revealing
one able of the rough deal shell hi which
I sit, a -trip of the table on which It
resta, nml facing me a door. I follow
with my tortured eyeball tho beam, and
sue that It Is the moon shining through
h small window. There I n diVir nnd n
window, then, lu my mysterious abiding
place! The hope leap instantly Into vig
orous being, nnd with It the determina
tion to escape, I feel strongly about
the second life of mine, that it Is a ill
vino gift direct from the hand of God.
To have to jlold It up now would be to
dto ten thousand deaths. My other life
I risked on a forlorn hope, and lost.
Thtre was Justice In It. I know tho
penalty, nnd had counted tho cost. I
suffered death In Its most degrading,
most awful form, nnd hnvo therefore
paid In full. I hnvo satisfied the low,
thcreforo this life I hold la nil my own,
and to the last drop of blood I will
protect and defend It.
