Uufus Gordon Anally spoke after his

"We've been over all this more or

woald take tno of your foolishness
out of you. It seems It hasn't. Well,

The question was blunt. It was more

Ktifti Gordon gave twlsu of aaoent,
but hU sou went on speaking with

nufa7GorCon had not moved a mus-
"" .... -. j ,. .nn.t
cie during bis son's uuk, anu uc oic
, in ... msv. contemptuous manner.
John Gordon came up to tbe side of
the table opposite bis father and looked
keenly across at blm. Then bo turned
away and went over to one of the
great windows and looked out on the
fashionable avenue. When be finally
turned around and faced bis father
again, be was astonished to sec blm
rising from bis chair ami coming over
toward blm. In all bis knowledge of
bis father, John Gordon had never
known blm before to exhibit so much
feeling, rrobably neither man rally
understood the event. Afterward, In
going over tbe scene, John Gordon
could not avoid a feeling of suspicion
as to Its genuineness, but he had never
known hte father to play a part, and,
in fact. conldcred blm quite Incapable
of It.
riowever that may be, Rufus Gordon
now began an appeal to bis son that
for the time being had considerable In
fluence over blm.
"John," bo began, holding out bis
bands, although when the son stepped
forward as If to meet him affection
ately be dropped his arms quickly to
bis stiles, "you are my only son, nnd I
depend en you. It has been tbe ambi
tion of my life to see you succeeding to
the place which I now occupy. I do not
understand what you have Just been
saying. It has no meaning to me. In
that snse. what you ay is very true
we can never understand eocb other.
But you woubl have independence in
tbe twsition I offer yon ami for which
you have beeu trained. If you wanted
to experiment In these matters of social
problems. a yon call tbem. yon would
hare the money and yonr place In soci
ety to help you. But If yon step out
side the circle In which we belong you
will have no standing and no Influence.
Rut It Is not clear to me yet what your
plan are, In case you Anally decide to
reject my plant for you.
lie stopped suddenly, and John Gor
don, looking eagerly nnd vlth growing
astonishment Into bis father's face,
noted for tbe first time Mgns of grow
ing age In the deep wrinkles about the
eyes, the bent shoulders and a slight
but noticeable shaking of one hand as
the long white fingers fumbled nt tbe
watch chain. He had novur before en
tertained the Idea that bis father was
an old man. Itufns Gordon had al
warn lwm so tinrlcbt of carriage. o
firm and stpady on Ida feet, so decide!
In bis movomoius, uiai none oi .-
qtialntancos had yet thought of age In
their thought of him. What he now

-My plans, father? I hare none
tbat is. none that you would call by
tbar name, rerbaps as far os I have
gone my plan are summed up lu my
love for tbe pople."
"1-ove for the people?" Uufus Gor
don repeated the words and took a step
toward Ids son. "You love the people,
then, more than your okl father! For
tbe people you would do what you
would not do for me! Ami who are the
people? Masses of tbe envions. tbe des
perate, tbe thriftless, tbe irrespoaeibi.
Are we to blame for their condition?
Yon talk of soeulwrongs. Hut who
makes them invisible but tbe ople
themselves?"
John listened in astonishment. In all
their conversation hi fattier bad ueter
before spoken so. TIhtv wn a strain
almost f inildnojh? In bi mauuer.
"John." be coutinued with a soften
ing of a.-itiii aud (winner that deep
ened the sou's astonishment, ''you -hii
not do anything. I said 1 did not tin
dvrstaiid you or your motlxes. I know
enough, however, to know itmt if yu
go oat Into the world to do the things
of which you drvwui. you will miera-

Rufu Uurtlon turned and walked
back lo the place where be bad been
sitting by the table. When be lifted
bis face again toward John Gordon, It
wr.s i be same cold, proud, bard fae
with which be had Ikaeoed to his son's
Indictment of his own aad his father's
social seJnsaaeas.
John Gordon was o eouf used by this
scene aud his father's manner that he
stood Irresolutely silent by tbe win
dow. Tbe whole incident stwuied fan
tastically unreal It was to unlike any
thing his father had ever done before.
He had Jaat tamed from tbe window
to speak waaa a voice in the next
room bgaatiKg.
"The saJass that grows with ihs year

aud called out in a clear but somewhat
hard lene:

What as It. Mary?" John Gordon
spoke atrectioMtaty.

fus Cordon nnswerwl as he went over'
to a writing desk, "I'll be here wbs
you are through." He sat down aid
began to write, while John and Mary
went together into the next room.
"Mary, I wont to talk seriously TViii
you," John (tordou began as Mary com
menced to sing In a mocking ton"
"Th ssdnsse that stows tsith Ui

"No! No! Listen to nic once, jo.
