We Have Changed All That By Herbert Quick and Elena Stepanoff Mac Mahon Copyright by The Eobbs-Merrlll Co. WNU Service THE STORY CHAPTER V.—Musln, Indignant over Vlllnsky's Insult, vaguely feels herself defenseless. She liiis heard whispers of the "nationalization of women," and tremblingly wonders If she Is to be the first victim In Kazan. CHAPTER VI.—In conversation with Vladimir, Musla somewhat bitterly criticizes her brother Ilya's acceptance of the situation. She knows Vladimir Is a member of an organization working for the overthrow of the Bolshe- vlkl, and Ilya's attitude seems to her to be a cowardly one. Vladimir, contemptuous of Ilya's weakness, Inwardly agrees with her. CHAPTER VII.—Vladimir determines tho time hns come to Join his comrades In arms against the Bolshuvlkl. That night he secretly takes his departure from tho Krassln home. Almost before he has left the grounds he encounters a party of Bolshevik soldiers. In a struggle he kills one of them, but Is overpowered and Imprisoned. Following the arrest a Bolshevist raiding party breaks Into the Kr.issln home, with authority from Commissar Lorls, and in their search for "Incriminating pupsrs"—In reality, loot—practically wreck Ilya's apartments ami carry off the young man, a prisoner. Musla endeavors to comfort her mother, but the older woman la crushed by the dlsauter. To Muslo she bitterly condemns Lorls, blaming him for the destruction of her hopes for Ilya's safety. Of the girl she apparently has little thought. (Continued from Last Wednesday.) "They stepped Into a corridor, and then into the reception room. Both were splendidly rich. There were large Turkish divans all around the walls of the reception room; and on these divans, on the walls, and on the floor, were magnificent Persian rugs. The oriental aspect Imparted to the place by these things was heightened by a collection of swords, pistols and knives In richly embossed leather, carved ivory and beautifully chased and ornamented gold and silver sheaths and holsters, some of them set with diamonds, turquoises and other precious stones; all these tastefully disposed pn the walls. The room did not look like the workroom of a functionary, but suggested leisure, luxury, voluptuousness—all with a touch of the barbaric. Mrs. Krassln felt ill at ease. This unexpected magnificence depressed her as she thought of the little collection of Jewels she had brought She felt depressed and Indignant, as she looked around her and thought, "Everything here is stolen—from us." She felt Insulted and abused by what she saw. Her presence In this brigand's nest was a humiliation. Then she recalled her errand—and from that moment she felt no contradictory Impulse or hesitation. Ilya's rescue and redemption took possession of all her heart and soul. With a trembling hand she straightened the lace at her breast, cast a side glance at Musla and was pleased to note how pure and pretty she looked. Mechanically she pushed down to the bottom of her reticule the money and jewelry she had fetched with her. Musia saw the movement and lowered her eyes; tbelr little treasure, she thought, was of small account here. Again they waited a long time, standing a little apart in the middle of the room. There was no rule of etiquette In the Bolshevist headquarters, and visitors might sit or Btand_as CITY PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY. they plensea: "but they knew tTint Oiey were Incurring the possibility of being rebuked If they seated themselves, and they felt that their self-respect required them to stand. Suddenly the Persian hanging which covered the doorway Into the Inner apartment wns swept aside, and n tall man In Cossack uniform stepped In. They were face to face with the great Bolshevik commissar.

But when he spoke, her heart sank again. With a quick gesture of habitual authority he dismissed the guard. He did not apologize for having kept them waiting so long outside, or for keep- Ing them standing in the reception room. He looked Mrs. Krassln over with a glance which moved from her feet to her head In a manner that was un- j speakahly rude; and then he turned tils gaze upon Musla. Their eyes met, and for a moment she gazed Into those black orbs which had struck so many, visitors with terror. Her glance dropped to the floor, while she remained conscious that ho was scanning her face with a continuance of that Incivility of his. A tinge of red dyed her cheeks, and her heart beats tingled her finger ends. Then she became conscious that, after the guard had departed, he had Indicated, half by a word, half by n gesture, that they were to be seated. She stole another glance at him. This Invitation to be seated looked favorable to her, and she wanted to verify her changing appraisement of the man —their antagonist. Nothing Bolshevik about him, she felt. His eye glanced from one of his visitors to the other; from Mrs. Kras- sln, with her haughty plain face, the face of one In torment, to Musla, with her pallor just tinged at his Impudent glance with pink, her wide anxious eyes, her blond head, her dainty girlish purity and prettlness, her atmosphere of culture—qualities of which he had seen little In that ogre's den of his. "Well?" he said Interrogatively—but in a voice which conveyed the Idea that he was always saying It to some one, and cared very little what the response might be. Sirs. Krassln began her speech. He looked toward the door with the manner of one conscious of taking part In some unusual proceeding, and wondering whether or not anyone is overhearing or observing It. He moved "She—*" stammered" Sirs. Krassln. "We are both torn by nnpnlsh for my son—her brother. We would give anything—life, llherty—I would give my body and my soul to rescue him. He Is my life!" "Yourself—body and sonll* exclaimed Lorls, with a bitter and Ironic smile. "And," Insinuatingly, "I suppose this young Indy would he equally liberal In the matter—or you for her? 1 ' There wns a movement at the door, ns If some one wore ahont to ontcr. Lorls rose, and by posture ns of dismissal brought thPtn to their foot. A solillor cnmo in with n messnee: nnd as he crossed tbo room glanced sharply nt the group—the two womon standing before tho commissar, drooping as from a cutting rebuke, with Sirs. Krns- sln still holding In her hand the petition. "Stand aside for a moment!" The guard obediently stood aside, closely scrutinizing the faces of the others. "I think I understand yon, mndame. You are calculating on the Impression made by the fine form and pretty face of your daughter. You think the Bolshevik commander amenable to such Influences—and yon are liberal In your offers, or your suggestions ns to carrying out any little arrangement which may be effective. Isn't that so? And I am sure you have something In reserve In your reticule, too—from the manner In which you hold It. You certainly adjust youi (elf admirably to a difficult situation, and neglect nothing, dear lady I" The Inconceivable brutality of this speech was such that for n moment Musla could scarcely believe that she had heard aright. Then ns Loris' attitude forced upon her the certainly that he had made tills terrible charge against her mother she grow sick and dizzy, with n feoling that her heart had been physically crushed. She took her mother by the arm and drew her toward the door. Why did she linger after that? Musln's Indignation rose as she saw her mother seemed not to resent tho Insult; for Mrs. Krassln resisted the urge toward the door, stood fast In this room In which every moment's lingering was a compromise of honor. "Come," said Musla, "let us go! Let us go!" But Mrs. Krnssln would not yield. She still stood fast. She seemed to hope for success—some sort of success. Lorls turned away and finished with the guard the business upon •which he had, ostensibly at least, entered, and all through this space of time Musla was, without success, urging her mother to depart. "I see," said he, "that the son Is the favorite child. Or perhaps you have accepted your own standards as to the comparative value of an enforced step out of the path commended by moralists, if taken by the daughter, with no harm to her life and limb, to save the very life of your son. Well, some important historical characters have taken the same position. How does the thing you had lu mind when you brought her here differ from marriage for wealth, or for position?

Speaking In what she had always thought her best manner, Mrs. Krassin laid her case before him'. She laid great stress on her words, stringing them on the thread of her discourse like pearls. She usually spoke well, and on this greatest of all occasions of her life, she did her very best. She suggested that her son, Jlya, had been apprehended by the party sent out by the commissar, under some misapprehension; and she dwelt on the harmless character of Dya, and showed that the idea of his having been engaged In any plots or conspiracies was utterly out of the question. It was a good deal of an oration. The fact that the woman was pleading for something much dearer to her than life did not seem to occur to Loris. Perhaps he had become calloused to appeals of this sort; and, after all, as Mrs. Krassln's speech drew on to a length approaching that of a lecture, one In Loris 1 position may be excused for being a little bored. The thing was so very plain. Either the matter would ba resolved accord- Ing to her desires, or It would not; and that was all there was to It. He made one or two movements of impatience; but each time he looked at Musla's anxious ghostly face, with all the pink driven back to her heart now, and withheld his protest. Mrs. Krassln began with "My son was arrested," and ended after what seemed even to Musla like a very long time, with "I hope you will," and "My innocent son." At the end, according to the Russian custom, she handed him a written petition. Without glancing at the document, he commanded her to lay it on the divan; and then he looked both women over again with absorbed attention. Something In the affair seemed to command his interest, and even amused him. Evidently he was solving some riddle, as he sat looking at them In that silent embarrassing way of his, glancing oftener and oftener at Musla as the expression of his eyes hinted that the riddle was clearing up, nnd that he had found the solution in the young girl's presence. And something like hate aud disgust began to characterize his scrutiny of Mrs. Krassln; a little cynical smile curled his lip as he looked at her. Musla's heart sunk; for she seemed to understand by that small disdainful smile that their cause was lost. If he hud spoken bruskly his denial, she would not have been more sure—and yet her mother did not seem to feel It. Something in Lorls' bold look at her made Musla shrink. "The best thing to do is to go away," said she to herself, watchlug very keenly their Judeo who was at the same time their adversary. Her mother had made some mistake, she felt, and everything was spoiled. What that mistake had been she could not conceive; but the fact she apprehended very clearly. "Who Is this young lady?" Lorls shot the question at Mu- Krassln like a crossexamlner, "My daughter," replied Mrs. Eras- sin. "Ilya's slater." '-Why JIM XBU bring her. here?" the*stra®rtraWfiarrow path, madame 1 You need not look so indignant, my dear," turning to Musia. "You may or may not know your own mother and her schemes; but whether you are Innocent or not, you are carrying it oft admirably—I will say that for you. You add to your value as trading stock! I admit it. You are simply great! Where did you get that face and form? Not from this mother- about whom I am telling you only the simple truth." In obedience to some instruction which Loris had given to the guard a soldier entered and stood at attention. "You will wait outside until your daughter Joins y_ou!" (To be Continued Next Week).
