To save my country from destruction 1 had but rayed it; when I saw the misery of what survived, I almost re- pented. Rut now 1 was in Lyaander's game, and must play it out. That is the plague of this doing evil that good may a temptation that I never! could resist. It IB like war-when once' you have begun you must see it through I partisans voted as we dictated. That ivka the last of democracy In my time; but my time was short. TVe still had some formidable enem4es. "Whom ive dared not leave alive. Tt was exile from a dirty job, but necessary, and I did "HERE'S TO MY SWEET CRITIAS." One thing I did do, how- at any c st. "Wo hnd agreed upon a list cf exiles' who must bo called hack. They were I mostly n gang of broken politicians and discredited of the breed of CaJHxentis; who, thanks to me wasn't included. I held them in detes- i tation, but to make up an oligarchy had to have such creatures. So they camp flocking in from every quarter, ragged, greedy, vindictiv Among those whose names I had s not protest. ever. I said, one evening a little later, "they have marked Thrasybulus for death." "What! Your brave comrade in the "The man who stood by me in the sea-fight, Gorgo." "Theramenes will not permit she n with my own and when I do did it the madness that forebodes ruin had already seized was Crilias. He came hurrying down from a veritable hot-bed of turhulence, treach- ery, and ferocious where h. had been playing the part of a rene- gade among the natives. These mod- ern operations of Weyler in Cuba and the Philippines will eive you some idea nature uf his achievements there of th training tor the work he was to do in Athens. First we organized a sort of Commit- tee of Safety, Critias. of course, being a member. Fierce and decisive, daring the act while others nursed the wish, be quickly stepped to the front. I alone could withstand him; but for a season our task was so plain that there was little opportunity for clashing, and for an instant her name cried; seemed fitting. "Theramenes will not permit it." I answered. "Vet he Is not yet quite ready to say his last good-bye to ffo." Ko I stole through darkness to his house. "See to It, Thrasy: ulus, that Snty doesn't find you h I warned him. tomorrow morn- He grasped my dropped it. he exclaimed, "this is a notable servirp; but I don't know whether to scorn or honor you. I can't make you you are friend or foe to our democracy. Your policy Is too crooked for me; though these, In- deed, are crooked days." I answered, "here Is Ihe truth. I am a friend to Athens, at least, and to men such as you. For the rest, I believe neither in mobs nor in tyrants. 1 believe in the rule uf sense .nd brawn. I would Rive citizenship Io every soot! none else." He. again grasjjed my hand. "You .re In the right of it, Theranmnes; and to he concluded. "Loot well to your own safety." Yet. even in the- race of all that. I vanquished him. I shall not attempt to rental what I said, for this whole story is my defense; but I pleaded as I iiad never pleaded before. "1 placed you here." I placed you where you now sit to me. It was I who led you back from friendless Critias. He is the traitor, who Is Ktninini; your names with eter- nal infamy( and making all men hate you. H is he who Is bringing upon you the ruin that J would have averted. The people, whom he says I have twice betrayed, have always loved and hon- ored me; mid to-day, who would not trust me sooner lhan I spoke with intense feeling, for Gor- go was in my mind, and the thought of the verdict she might render was more to me than life. When J had fin- ished, the hall rang with applause; I could never convicted there. Such a sense of respite and relief came over me GE when a tired swimmer first feels the sand under his feet; 1 should again see Gorgo. lint I was deceived; I found myself like a swimmer who has set his feet on a quicksand. Critias rose sternly to his feet, and forbade the ballot. "It is the business of a good presi- he said, "to prevent mistakes. I therefore strike the name of this traitor from the list of those entitled to trial; and Satyrus here, and the Eleven, will nut permit him to escape." It fell like a thunderbolt: the whole council was daunted The audacity of the thing was magnificent; the cleaving of the Qordlan knot was nothing to It. As Satyrtis with his posse of licensed murderers advanced, I sprang to the altar. "He has made my cause the cause of I cried, "for there is no one of you whose name may not be stricken off as easily." They knew It; they saw it only too clearly-and that, perhaps, Is the rea- Rori why none of them lifted a finger in my defense, as Satyrus tore me from the altar and dragged me away to ex- ecution. As we passed through thi streets one thought was dominant ii my mind -that 1 must proclaim my in- nocence. "Shut your snarled Satyrus, "or you will suffer for it." But I laughed in his face with the hardihood of despair. "And if I do shut it, Satyrus, shall I not suffer, think In fact, they had arranged for my death with such diabolical forehanded- ness, that when we reached the prison the hemlock ivas already brayed and mixed. I tossed It off like a toast: "Here's !o my sweet I cried, Easy Physic. There is a wrong and n right way to correct constipation.
