Copyright. 1901, bjr
(Continued from last week)
The morning of the funeral an extra
edition of the Herald was Issued, which
contained a glowing account of Ityder'
life and achievements. It was nn open
secret that It was from the gifted pen
of Kenyon. Tills notable enterprise
wu one of the wonders of the day.
Everybody wanted a Herald as a sou
venir of the occasion, nnd nearly 500
copies were sold.
All that morning the country people
In unheard of numbers flocked into
town. As Clarence remarked to Hplde.
It was Just like a circus day. The
noon train from Ituckhoru Junction
arrived crowded to the doors, as did
the 1 o'clock train from Harrison.
Antloch bad never known anything
The funeral was at 2 o'clock from the
llttlo white frame Methodist church,
but long before the appointed hour It
was crowded to the verge of suffoca
tion, and the anxious, wultlug throng
overflowed Into the yard aud street
with never a bopo of wedging Into the
building, much less securing seats.
A delegation of the strikers, the
Young Men's Keuyon club, of wblcb
Ryder waa a member, aud a represent
ative body of citizens escorted the re
mains to the church. These were the
people be bad Jeered at, whose simple
joys be bad ridiculed and whose griefs
be bad made light of, but they would
gladly bave forgiven him bis sarcasms
even bad they known of them. lie bad
become a hero and a martyr.
Cbrla Berry and Cap Roberta were
In charge of the arrangements. On the
night of the murder tbe former bad
beaten bis rival to the Herald office by
exactly three minutes and bad never
'left Ryder until he Iny In tbe most cost
ly casket In bla shop.
It was admitted afterward by
thoughtful men who were accustomed
to weigh their opinions carefully that
Mr. Williamson, the minister, bad nev
er delivered so moving an address or
one that contained so obvious a moral.
Tbe drift of his remarks was that tbe
death of tbelr brilliant and distinguish
ed fellow townsman should serve as a
wsmlng to all that there waa no time
like tbe present In which to prepare
for the life everlasting. He assured hi
andleuce that each hour of exUtencu
should be devoted to cousecratlon aud
slkut testimony; otherwise, what did It
avail? It waa nut enough that Ryder
had thrown the weight of bis personal
influence and exceptional taleuts on
the side of sound morality and civic
usefulness. And as he soared ou from
point to point bis hearers soared with
him, and when he rounded In on each
well tried climax they rounded in with
hliu. He never failed them once. They
always knew what he was going to say
before It was said and were ready for
the thrill when the thrill was due. It
might have seemed that Mr. William
son was paid a salary merely to make
an uncertain hereafter yet more un
comfortable nnd uncertain, but Antloch
took Its religion hot, with a shiver and
a threat of blue (la me.
When Mr. Williamson sut dowu Mr.
Kenyon rose. As a layman he could
be entirely eulogistic. He was sure of
tbe fnlth which through life bad beeu
the guiding star of tbe departed. He
bad seen It Instanced by numerous acta
of eminently Christian beuevolenco,
aud on those rare occasions wheu he
had spoken of hi hopes aud fears he
bad, lu spite of his shrinking modesty,
shown that his stambinls (if Christian
duty were bi.lh lofty and rmislMeut.
Here the Hon. Job 1! rr.iws, who had
been dozing pemvfiilly. .awoke with a
start and garcd w ii : wi.le, bulging
eye st the speaker. IK- lollowcd Mr.
Kenyon, and. though be tried Intnl. he
couldn't recall any expression of lty
der's, at the Red Star bar or clsew here,
which Indicated that there was any
spiritual uplift to his nature which he
fed at secret nltars; so he pictured the
friend snd citizen, nnd the dead fared
well at his bands, perhaps better than
he was conscious of, for he said no
more tliiiu he Mleved.
Then eiime the prayer and byuiu, to
be succeeded by a heavy, solemn pause,
stiil Mr. Williamson stepped to the
front of the platform.
"All those who cure to view the re
mains and I presume there are many
hole who will wish to look upon the
faiv of our dead friend before It Is
conveyed to Its final resting place
will please form lu Hue at the rear of
the edlllce aud advance ijuletly up the
right aisle, passing across the church
as ipivkly a possible and thence down
the left aisle snd on out through tho
door. This will prvvent confusion and
make It much pleasanter for sll."
There was s rustle of skirts and th
awkwnrd shunting of many feet as the
congrvgetlou formed In line; then It
filed slowly up the slsle to where Chris
Berry stixxl, wcareucd and dry, with
a vulture look ou his face and a vul
ture touch to his bsuds that now aud
agalu picked st the flowers which were
Uiuked about the colli n.
The Kmorys. partly out of regard for
public sentiment, h.ul aticcdcd tliC fa
neral. for. a the doctor said, they were
the only real friends Crlff had In the
town. 1 ' ; n had kuowu aud liked hlui
Harper t Brother
when the rest of Antloch was dubi
ously critical of the newcomer, whose
ways were not Its ways.
When the congregation thronged up
the aisle Constnnce, who had endured
the long service, which to her was un
speakably grotesque and horrible, lu
shocked If silent rebellion slipped her
hand Into her mother's. "Tiike me
away," she whispered brokenly, "or I
shall cry out! Take me away!"
Mrs. Emory hesitated. It seemed a
desertion of h trust to go and leave
Orlff to these strangers, who bad been
brought there by morbid curiosity.
Constance guessed what was passing
In her mind.
"Pupa will remain If It is necessary."
Mrs. Emory touched the doctor on
the shoulder. "We're going home,
John; Constance doesn't feel well; but
When they reached the street the
last vestige of Constance's self control
vanished utterly. "Wasn't It awful!"
she sobbed. "And his life bnd only
Just begun! And to be snuffed out
like this, when there was everything to
Mrs. Emory, surprised at tbe sudden
how of feeling, looked Into her daugh
tera face. Constance understood the
"No, no! He was only a friend! ne
could never have been more than that.
Toor, poor Griff!"
"I am glad for your sake, dearie,"
said Mrs. Emory gently.
"I waan't very kind to him at the
last, but I couldn't know I couldn't
know," she moaned.
She was not much given to these
confidences even with ber mother.
Usually she never questioned the wis
dom or righteousness of ber own acts,
and It was not ber habit to put them to
tbe test of a less generous Judgment,
but she was remembering her last
meeting with Ryder. It bad been the
day before bis death. He bad told ber
that be loved ber, and abe bad flared
up, furious aud resentful, with tbe dull,
accusing ache of many days In ber
heart and a cruel readiness to make
him suffer. Bhe bad tried to convince
herself nfterward that It was only bla
vanity thut was hurt
Then she thought of Oakley. Bhe
bad been thinking of him all day, won
dering where be was. If he hud left
Antloch, and not daring to ask. They
were going up the path now toward
the house, and she turned to her moth
"What do they say of Mr. Oakley I

why, but I'm more sorry for hlni than
I am for GrlfT. He has so much to

"What will lie dono with his father
If be Is raptured? Will they" She
could not bring herself to finish the
"(loudness knows! I wouldn't worry
about him," snld Mrs. Emory In a tone
of considerable asperity. "He made
all the trouble, and 1 haven't a particle
of patience with Mm!"
BY .1 o'clock the saloons and stores,
which had closed at noon, open
ed their doors, and Antloch
emerged from the shadow of Its
Uy -t o'clock a long procession of car
riages and wagons was rumbling out
of town. Those who had come fror.i
