2
  Our play is made up of four 
separate stories, laid in different 
periods of history, each with its 
own set of characters. 

3
   Each story shoes how hatred
and intolerance, through all the ages, 
have battled against love and charity. 

4
   Therefore, you will find our 
play turning from one of the 
four stories to another, as the 
common theme unfolds in each. 

5
   "Out of the cradle endlessly 
rocking." 

6
   Today as yesterday, endlessly 
rocking, ever bringing the same 
human passions, the same joys and 
sorrows.

7
   Our first story - out of the cradle 
of the present. 
   In a western city we find certain 
ambitious ladies banded together for 
the "uplift" of humanity. 


8
   Even reform movements 
      must be financed.

"If we can only interest Miss 
Jenkins - with her money - " 

9
A little affair is being given 
by Mary T. Jenkins, unmar-
ried sister of the autocratic
   industrial overlord -

10
   Seeing youth drawn to youth, 
Miss Jenkins realizes the bitter fact 
that she is no longer a part of the 
younger world.

11
The girl of our story keeps 
house for her father who works 
in a Jenkins mill. With a wage 
of $2.75 a day, a little garden, 
four hens, ditto geese, and a 
fair measure of happiness and 
         contentment.

12
   The little Dear One.

13
   The Boy, unacquainted with the 
little Dear One, is employed with his 
father in the same mill.

14
   Age intolerant of youth and 
laughter. 
   "The vestal virgins of Uplift" 
succeed in reaching Miss Jenkins in 
their search for funds.

15
   Comes now from out the cradle 
of yesterday, the story of an ancient
people, whose lives, though far away 
from ours, run parallel in their hopes
and perplexities. 

16
   Ancient Jerusalem, the golden city 
whose people have given us many of 
our highest ideals, and from the carpen-
ter shop of Bethlehem, sent us the
Man of Men, the greatest enemy of 
intolerance. 

17
   Near the Jaffa gate.

18
   The house in Cana 
of Galilee

19
   Certain hypocrites among 
the Pharisees. 
           _____

 Pharisee - a learned Jewish party, the 
 name possibly brought into disrepute
 later by hypocrites among them.

20
   When these Pharisees pray 
they demand that all action 
cease.

21
   "Oh Lord, I thank thee 
that I am better than
other men."

22
"Amen." 

23
   Another period of the past. 
   A.D. 1572 - Paris, a hotbed of 
intolerance, in the time of Catherine 
de Medici, and her son Charles IX, 
King of France. 

24
   Charles IX receiving his 
brother, Monsieur La France, 
Duc d'Anjou.

25
   The heir to the throne, the 
effeminate Monsieur La France.
   Pets and toys his pastimes.

26
   Catherine de Medici, queen-mother 
who covers her political intolerance of 
the Huguenots beneath the cloak of the 
great Catholic Religion.

	NOTE: Huguenots - the Protestant 
	party of this period.

27
   The great Protestant leader,
the Admiral Coligny, head of 
the Huguenot party. 

28
   "What a wonderful man, 
the Admiral Coligny, if he 
only thought as we do."

29
   "What a wonderful king, 
if he only thought as we do." 

30
   The King's favor to Coligny 
increases the hatred of the
opposite party.

31
   Celebrating the betrothal of 
Marguerite of Valois, sister of the King, 
to Henry of Navarre, royal Huguenot, 
to insure peace in the place of 
intolerance.

32
   Marguerite of Valois.

33
   Henry of Navarre.

34
   Brown Eyes, her family of 
the Huguenot Party, and her 
sweetheart, Prosper Latour.

35
   Brown Eyes attracts the
attention of a mercenary
soldier.

36
   Returning to our story of today, 
we find the embittered Miss Jenkins
aligning herself with the modern 
Pharisees and agreeing to help the 
Uplifters.

37
   A diversion of the 
mill workers.

38
   "To everything there is a 
season .... a time to mourn and
a time to dance .... He hath 
made everything beautiful in 
his time." 

		Ecclesiastes iii.

39
   The little Dear One 
having the time of her life.

40
"Want my straw?"

41
Miss Jenkins receives a 
check from her brother 
for the purposed uplift 
     of humanity.

42
   Jenkins studies his 
employes' habits.

43
   "Ten o'clock! They should 
be in bed so they can work 
tomorrow." 

44
   And now our fourth story of 
love's struggle against Intolerance, 
in that distant time when all the 
nations of the earth sat at the feet 
of Babylon.

45
   Outside of Imgur Bel, the 
great gate of Babylon, in the 
time of Belshazzar, 539 B.C. 
   Merchants, farmers, East Indians, 
with trains of elephants, Egyptians, 
Numidians, and ambitious Persians 
spying upon the city. 

46
The Mountain Girl 
  down from the 
  mountains of 
    Suisana.

47
The Rhapsode, a Warrior 
singer - poet agent of the 
  High Priest of Bel.

48
The priest of Bel-Marduk, 
supreme God of Babylon, 
jealously watches the
image of the rival goddess, 
Ishtar, enter the city, borne 
    in a sacred ark.

49
   "Dearest one - in the ash heaps 
of my backyard there will be small 
flowers; seven lilies - if thou wilt 
love me - but a little." 

50
   "Ishtar, goddess of love, 
seven times seven I bow 
to thee. Let her enjoy this 
kiss." 

51
   On the great wall. 
   The Prince, Belshazzar, son 
of Nabonidus, apostle of 
tolerance and religious freedom.
            _______

   NOTE: - Replica of Babylon's encircling 
           walls, 300 feet in height, and 
           broad enough for the passing of 
           chariots.

52
   The two-sword man,
Belshazzar's faithful guard, 
a mighty man of valor.

53
   The intolerant High Priest of 
Bel sees in the enthronement of 
rival gods, the loss of his own great 
powers in Babylon.

54
The gate of Imgur 
Bel which no enemy 
has ever been able 
    to force.

55
   Hand maidens from Ishtar's 
Temple of Love and Laughter.

56
   The Princess Beloved, 
favorite of Belshazzar, in a 
room of scented cedar, plated 
with pure gold, in the hareem 
of My Lord the Prince.

57
   A love blossom from 
Belshazzar. 
   Stricken by her pale beauty, 
as though by white lightning.

58
The brother of the Mountain 
Girl, having some slight trouble 
with his high-spirited sister,
takes the matter to the court.

59
      The first known court 
     of justice in the world. 

NOTE - Babylonian justice according to 
the code of Hammurabi, protecting the 
       weak from the strong.

60
   The Mountain Girl's brother 
tells the Judge that she is 
incorrigible.

61
   The judgment is that she be 
sent to the marriage market 
to get a good husband.

62
Endlessly rocks the cradle 
uniter of here and hereafter. 
Chanter of sorrows and joys.

63
   Resuming our story of
today.
   Dividends of the Jenkins mills
failing to meet the increasing 
demands of Miss Jenkins' charities, 
she complains to her brother, which 
helps decide him to action. 

64
   "Order a ten percent cut 
in all wages." 

65
   A great strike follows.

66
   "They squeeze the money out of 
us and use it to advertise themselves 
by reforming us." 

67
   Hungry ones that wait 
to take their places.

68
   The militia having used blank 
cartridges, the workmen now fear 
only the company's guards.

69
"Clear the property." 

70
The Loom of Fate 
weaves death for 
the Boy's father.

71
The exodus after a time of 
waiting. Forced to seek em-
ployment elsewhere, many vic-
tims of the Jenkins' aspirations 
go to the great city nearby - 
   the Boy among them.

72
   A friendless one - alone - 
as the result of the strike.

73
   So too, the Dear One -
and her father.

74
   Fate leads them all to 
the same district.

75
   The Boy unable to find 
work - at last -

76
   And again in Babylon.

77
   The marriage market. 
   Money paid for beautiful 
women given to homely ones, 
as dowers, so that all may have 
husbands and be happy.

78
Lips brilliant with juice of 
henna; eyes lined with kohl. 

  NOTE: - According to Herodotus, 
  women corresponding to our 
  street outcasts, for life the 
  wards of Church and State.

79
   The auctioneer.

80
   "Tish tish! 'tis no place
to eat onions." 

81
   The girl's turn - perhaps 
not so different from the 
modern way.

82
In distant Nineveh - 
  One who would give his 
  life if he were able to buy 
  the merchandise held so 
  lightly upon Love's market.

83
   "Any man will be happy 
with this sweet wild rose - 
this gentle dove." 

84
   "But touch my skirt and 
I'll scratch your eyes out!" 

85
   The temper and rough 
language of the "wild rose" 
prove her to be not without 
thorns.

86
   "With her goes a third 
of a mina of silver." 

87
   "You lice! You rats! You 
refuse me? 
   "There is no gentler dove in 
all Babylon than I."

88
   Belshazzar now ruling 
for his father.

89
   "Oh, lord of lords! Oh, king of kings! 
Oh, masu! Oh, scorching sun of the
mid-day, these bugs will not buy me for 
a wife! 
   "I dwell in sorrow."

90
   "This seal gives you freedom 
to marry or not to marry - to be 
consecrated to the goddess of 
love or not as thou choosest." 

91
   The Rhapsode, working in 
the tenements, to convert 
backsliders to the true wor-
ship of Bel.

92
   "Put away thy perfumes, thy 
garments of Assinnu, the 
female man. I shall love none 
but a soldier." 

93
   The love-smitten Mountain 
Girl vows eternal allegiance to 
Belshazzar.

94
 In the Love Temple.
Virgins of the sacred 
    fires of life.

95
He promises to build 
her a city, beautiful as 
the memory of her 
own in a foreign land.

96
   "The fragrant mystery of 
your body is greater than 
the mystery of life." 

97
Belshazzar the king, 
 The very young king, of Babylon - 
And his Princess-Beloved, 
 Clearest and rarest of all his pearls, 
The very dearest one of his dancing girls.

98
   Belshazzar, shepherd of the 
mighty nation, purified by the 
sacred baths and a Sabbath of 
rest, visits the temple of the 
moon god.

99
"My masu, my hero-love." 

100
   Another agent of the High 
Priest of Bel, agitating against 
Belshazzar.

101
"Lies! Lies! Lies!" 

102
   For the affront to the Priest-
hood the High Priest orders that 
she be beaten to death with a 
rod of iron.

103
   "I swear, oh Sar, this priest 
spoke evil of thee."

104
   "Since when has the High 
Priest of Bel the power of 
death over my subjects?" 

105
   Belshazzar again gives 
the girl her freedom.

106
The Dear One in her 
new environment forced 
upon her by the Jenkins 
strike. The same old love 
       and dreams.

107
   The hopeful geranium.

108
   "I'll walk like her and 
maybe everybody will like 
me too." 

109
   In the same neighborhood, 
the friendless one again.

110
   Across the hall, The 
Musketeer of the Slums.

111
   The Boy, now a barbarian of 
the streets, a member of The 
Musketeer's band.

112
   Imitating the walk of the 
girl on the street.

113
   The Boy's news stand, a blind 
for his real operations. 
   Their first meeting.

114
   The new walk seems 
to bring results.

115
   "Say kid, you're going to 
be my chicken." 

116
"Pray to be forgiven!"

117
   Inability to meet new conditions 
brings untimely death to The Dear 
One's father.

118
   Out of the cradle, endlessly 
rocking - 
   The Comforter, out of Nazareth.

119


   There was a marriage in 
Cana of Galilee. 
                John ii-1. 
          _______

Note: - The ceremony according to Sayce, 
        Hastings, Brown and Tissot.

120
   The first sop to 
the bride.

121
   Be ye as harmless 
as doves.

122
   Scorned and rejected 
of men.

123
   Mary, the mother.

124
   Meddlers then as now. 
   "There is too much revelry 
and pleasure-seeking among 
the people."

125
   The poor bride and groom 
suffer great humiliation.
   The wine has given out.

126
   The first miracle. 
   The turning of water into 
wine. 
           ______

 Note: - Wine was deemed a fit offering 
         to God; the drinking of it a part 
         of the Jewish religion.

127
   Now for a time the little love 
god works his small but mighty 
way, in other days the same as 
now.

128
   Brown Eyes and her family 
happily ignorant of the web 
intolerance is weaving around 
them.

129
   Love's silent mystery.

130
   The mercenary made bold 
by passion.

131
In the good old summertime. 

   For the little Dear 
   One, passing days 
   and youth have 
   healed the wound.

132
   The end of a "Coney 
Island" day.

133
   "Nothing doing on the good 
night stuff, I always go inside 
to see my girls."

134
   "Help me to be a strong-
jawed jane."

135
"I told you before - I promised 
Our Lady and I promised 
father that no man would 
ever come in this room."

136
"Just for that 
I'll never see 
  you again!"

137
   "I was thinking -- suppose we 
get married, then I can come in."

138
   "That's me. Kiss me good 
night and we'll call it settled."

139
   The enormous sums supplied by 
Jenkins to be distributed as the 
meddlers see fit - in "charity" - now 
make the Uplifters the most influ-
ential power in the community.

140
   Equally intolerant hypocrites 
of another age.

141
   And the Pharisee 
said: 
   "Behold a man gluttonous, 
and a winebibber, a friend of 
publicans and sinners." 
                 St. Matthew XI-19. 

142
The woman taken 
  in adultery.

143
"Now Moses in the law 
commanded us that 
such should be stoned; 
but what sayest thou?" 
                 - John VIII. 

144
"He that is without 
sin among you, let 
him first cast a 
  stone at her." 

145
   "Woman, where are those 
thine accusers? Hath no man
condemned thee?"

146
"No man, Lord."

147
   Now, how shall we find 
this Christly example followed 
in our story of today? 
   The Committee of Seventeen re-
port they have cleaned up the city.

148
"It is peaceful in the --"

149
"No more dancing in --"

150
"You yourself were with us 
     when we raided -"

151
   When women cease to attract 
men they often turn to Reform as 
a second choice.

152
   But these results they do 
not report:

153
   Each one his own distiller. 
   Instead of mild wines and beers -

154
The Boy, strongly braced 
in the Dear One's sweet 
human faith, sets his 
steps with hers on the 
    straight road.

155
   The Boy tells the boss he won't 
need the "cannon" any more; he is 
through with the old life.

156
   As an example to others of the 
band, The Musketeer, with the help 
of men higher up, arranges the old 
familiar frame-up.

157
   The sometimes House 
of Intolerance.

158
   Stolen goods, planted on The 
Boy, and his bad reputation
intolerate him away for a term.

159
   The broken love nest -
The Dear One - - alone - 

160
   While at the Jenkins home the 
Uplifters celebrate their success in 
righting the world that was all 
wrong.

161
   In Babylon.
   The High Priest of Bel courts 
public homage.

162
The Priest of Bel, frenzied 
at the worship of Ishtar, 
prophecies the loss of 
their souls and the down-
    fall of Babylon.

163
Belshazzar's father has a red 
letter day. He excavates a 
foundation brick of the temple 
of Naram-Sin, builded 3200 
       years before.

164
Incidentally he remarks 
that Cyrus, the Persian, 
Babylon's mighty foe, 
is nearing the city.

165
   "We will begin building your 
city, oh dove of Ishtar, when 
Cyrus is conquered. 

166
   The Persian camp. 
   Cyrus, world-conqueror, 
preparing for the titanic struggle 
with Babylon, in secret league 
with the priest of Bel. 
              ______

    Note: - Situate between the Euphrates 
            and post road to Egypt.

167
The treacherous 
priest of Bel re-
ceives assuring 
news from Cyrus.

168
   In his tent, Cyrus, before 
the sacred image of the sun.

169
   The institution of Cyrus. 
   The Medes and Persians at 
exercises. 
           _____

    Note: - It was required that each man 
            perspire every day

170
   Ethiopians.

171
   Barbarians.

172
Out of the cradle - 
endlessly rocking.
Baby fingers hopefully 
lifted. 

173
The little wife, now 
a mother, plans for 
the day of daddy's 
     return.

174
   The Uplifters, claiming the regular 
children's societies are inefficient, now 
turn to "negligent" mothers.

175
   A cold sends our little mother to 
an old-fashioned remedy, condemned 
publicly yet used privately by many 
physicians and hospitals.

176
   The Uplifters investigate.
   "Child - evil surroundings - 
criminal father."

177
"Whisky!"

178
   "We are afraid you're no 
fit mother ----." 

179
   Reporting the case.

180
   Despite the objections of 
some of the members, they 
decide to seize the baby.

181
   The friendly neighbor, 
with a glass of beer.

182
   "Did you see that? 
A man visitor!" 

183
   "We have a warrant to 
take your baby." 

184
Suffer Little Children -

185
   Hoping for a sight of her
baby.
   "Perhaps they are right and baby 
is happy after all."

186
   Of course, hired mothers 
are never negligent.

187
   A new dissipation - watching 
the happiness of others.

188
   In another bitter day, memorable 
through intolerance.

189
   The threatening attitude 
of the Huguenots throughout 
France is reported to Catherine.

190
   The "old serpent" uses the 
incident to inflame the minds 
of the Catholics against the 
Protestants.

191
   "Remember, gentlemen, the 
Michelade at Nimes when 
hundreds of our faith perished 
at the hands of the Huguenots!" 

192
   "And so, our very lives depend 
upon their extermination."
   An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth - ] 

193
   Cyrus moves upon Babylon; in 
his hand the sword of war, most 
potent weapon forged in the flames 
of intolerance.

194
   Belshazzar leaving to take 
charge of the city's defense.

195
   "My Lord, like white pearls I shall keep 
my tears in an ark of silver for your 
return. I bite my thumb! I strike my 
girdle! If you return not, I go to the 
death halls of Allat."

196
   While the Princess Beloved 
prays, the Mountain Girl goes 
to fight for her Belshazzar.

197
   Babylon's gates close
against the foe.

198
   War drums and trumpets!

199
   "On the walls of my city, I, 
Belshazzar, defy the enemies 
of Babylon. Allato! Allato! 
Allato!" 

200
   Great moving siege towers 
covered with ox hide.

201
   Inside the city walls.

202
   Ancient instruments of 
war. 
   Rock-throwers, catapults, 
battering rams, mighty cross-
bows, burning oil.

203
   Prayers in the temples and 
burning of frankincense.

204
   Burnt offerings.

205
   "Ishtar, beloved, though our 
sins be many, forgive us. In 
our behalf seize thou now the 
burning sword."

206
   The city assaulted 
on all sides.

207
   Cyrus repeats the world-old 
prayer of intolerance, to kill, kill, 
kill --- and to God be the glory, 
world without end, Amen.

208
   "Ishtar, my offering, three 
turnips and a carrot." 

209
   "Babylon is falling! Babylon, 
that mighty city is falling, is 
falling!" 

210
   The Princess Beloved, 
frenzied with war's terrors, 
watches the battle from afar.

211
   Great timbers against 
the towers.

212
   Into the night. 

213
"Fight for him, Ishtar, 
         fight for him!" 

214
   Morning brings fresh 
assaults and towers.

215
   The mighty man of valor 
and his legion oppose the 
threatening tide.

216
   A new and flaming engine 
of destruction attempts to burn 
the towers of Cyrus.

217
   The army of Cyrus 
repulsed by Belshazzar.

218
   Babylon's paean of 
victory.

219
"My glorious Belshazzar."

220
        End of Act
This intermission five minutes 
       before last act 

221
  A Sun-play of the Ages
       Intolerance
  A drama of Comparisons
         ACT II.

222
   In this last act the events 
portrayed in Babylon are according 
to the recently excavated cylinders 
of Nabonidus and Cyrus, that relate 
Babylon's betrayal by the priests of 
Bel. 

223
   These cylinders describe the 
greatest treason of all history, by 
which a civilization of countless ages 
was destroyed, and a universal written 
language (the cuneiform) was made 
to become an unknown cypher on 
the face of the earth. 

224
   In our modern story, The 
Musketeer, inflamed by a new face 
wins the unsuspecting little mother's 
confidence with a promise to recover 
her baby. 

225
Jealousy.

226
   The Boy's return to The 
Dear One.

227
   The Feast of Belshazzar. 
   In the great court of the palace, 
rejoicing over Babylon's victory. 

228
   Before the nobles of 
Babylon, Belshazzar pours 
out the colossal hospitality 
of an ancient time. 
           _____

Note: - This hall over a mile in length, 
        imaged after the splendor of 
        an olden day.

229
   A golden moment for 
Belshazzar and the Princess 
Beloved.

230
   "To thee, oh Ishtar, all praise 
for the victory." 

231
   A gateway of the banquet 
hall. 
   The Mountain Girl happy in being 
even in the fringe of her hero's glory.

232
   The High Priest looks down 
upon the city he seeks to betray 
to Cyrus.

233
"They give thanks to Ishtar 
now, but Oh Lord Bel - 
tomorrow Cyrus, thy ser-
vant, shall avenge thee!" 

234
The Rhapsode, unaware 
of the dastardly purpose, 
is ordered by the High 
Priest to have chariots 
at the great gate for a 
   journey to Cyrus.

235
In the tenement dis-
trict, a simpler repast 
- her last in Babylon.

236
        At the table of 
       Egibi, Babylonia's 
        greatest noble. 

NOTE - Following Babylonian cus-
tom, the feasting lasts many days.

237
   Spiced wine, made 
cool with snow from the 
mountains.

238
   Soldiers, barbarians and 
camp followers.

239
The Rhapsode, having com-
pleted his arrangements 
for the journey, turns to 
   thoughts of love.

240
   Thinking only of Belshazzar, 
her hero, The Mountain Girl 
leads on the love-sick boy, until - 

241
- - as always since the 
beginning of time between 
man and maid, boasting, he 
tells everything he knows.

242
   "I know not why we go, but 
if I don't return soon you can 
use the password to visit me." 

243
   The conspiring priests 
leave the banquet hall.

244
   Catherine's audience with the King 
to secure his signature to the order for 
the massacre of St. Bartholomew. 
                ______

        Note: - Councillors present: Nevers, 
                Tavannes, Retz and Birague.

245
   "I will not consent to this 
intolerant measure to destroy 
any of my people." 

246
   After a long session, the 
Intolerants sway the King.
            ____

   "We must destroy or be 
destroyed." 

247
   "By God's death, since you 
wish it, kill them all! Kill them 
all! Let not one escape to 
upbraid me." 

248
   Prosper and Brown 
Eyes betrothed.
   "The banns - tomorrow, 
St. Bartholomew's morn."

249
   Candles out - fading 
lights.

250
   Prosper puzzled by the 
ominous activities.

251
   St. Bartholomew's eve.
   Upon the doorways of the 
Huguenots - the chalk of doom.

252
   Prosper's lodgings across 
the town.

253
   In the Temple of Love.
   The sacred dance in memory of 
the resurrection of Tammuz.

254
   Beloved - a white rose - 
              from Beloved.

255
The gates manned with their 
own guards, the priests are 
guided by the Rhapsode on 
their mission of treason to 
the camps of Cyrus.

256
   In the interests of her 
prince - 
   A little flirtation.

257
   Suspicious of the hated 
priests' journey to Cyrus, 
she uses the password and 
follows them.

258
   The Musketeer of the Slums 
seizes an opportune time to visit 
the little wife.

259
   "You go in and get the address 
where the kid is."

260
   "You know me - I can get 
your baby for you."

261
   "Just saw the boss go up 
to see your wife." 

262
Nearing the end 
of the Boy's trial 
   for murder.

263
   Love's brave encouragement.

264
   "Yes, it was once my gun - but I - 
I - didn't do it." 

265
   The maiden case of 
The Boy's attorney.

266
   "I mean - can we hang - I mean, 
it's only circumstantial evidence." 

267
   The verdict - guilty. 
   Universal justice, an eye for an 
eye, a tooth for a tooth, a murder for 
a murder.

268
   Outside the Roman Judgment 
Hall, after the verdict of Pontius 
Pilate: 
     "Let Him Be Crucified"

269
The Boy's sentence.

270
"Please - Mister Judge - " 

271
   "To be hanged by the neck 
until dead, dead, dead!" 

272
   The Kindly Officer on the beat 
learns of the sentence.

273
   "The people everywhere 
are singing your praises." 

274
   The irresistible impulse.

275
   In his distant camp, Cyrus 
awaits the priests.

276
   The Mountain Girl's 
bold pursuit.

277
The day before the 
Boy's execution.

278
Feeling the Boy wrongly 
convicted by some mis-
chance of fate, the Kindly 
Heart sees a ray of hope 
in the visit of the governor 
      to the city.

279
"And wondered if each one of us
   Would end the self-same way,
For none can tell to what red Hell
   His sightless soul may stray."

280 
   The governor unable 
to give any hope.

281
At the tents of Cyrus.

282
   The Mountain Girl from a 
distance watches the priests' 
arrival.

283
   The great conspiracy.

284
   The Boy's last dawn. 
   The hangman's test.

285
   Desperate, the little wife 
herself goes to the governor.

286
   "Oh God, don't let them 
do it!" 

287
   St. Bartholomew's morn. 
   The bell of St. Germain.

288
   The beginning of 
the massacre of St. 
Bartholomew.

289
   For Brown Eyes, 
a terrible awakening.

290
   The Dear One's appeal to 
the Governor fruitless.

291
   The governor leaves.

292
   "I killed him! I did it, 
I did it!"

293 
   The attempt to overtake 
the governor before he 
reaches the train.

294
   Her long wait rewarded, 
she goes to warn Belshazzar 
of the new advance on 
Babylon.

295
   The last Sacrament.

296
   No. 8, after the train, 
leaps with a new impulse.

297
Intolerance, burning 
and slaying.

298
In the doomed city. 

"Our marriage will 
be announced to-
     morrow."

299
   "This bud will blossom - 
tomorrow." 

300
   "Beloved, I will begin 
building your city - 
tomorrow." 

301
   Cyrus sweeps on to 
Babylon's destruction.

302
   "Medici, the old cat, is 
scratching out the lives of 
all your people." 

303
   At the house of 
Brown Eyes. 
   The mercenary's opportunity.

304
   Prosper, with the badges 
of safety, goes to rescue his 
loved ones.

305
   Even with the password, 
Prosper's way beset with 
danger.

306
Babylon's last Bacchanal.

307
   Brown eyes - ah me, ah me!

308
   Cyrus unites forces with his 
lieutenant, Gobryas.

309
   The Mountain Girl's warning 
delayed by the revelers.

310
   A new appeal.

311
   While Belshazzar doubts, 
the army of Cyrus enters 
through the gates left open by 
the priests.

312
   Belshazzar at last convinced 
by his own servants.

313
   Belshazzar finds only twelve 
guards to defend his palace 
gates against the hordes of
Cyrus.

314
   The Princess' vain 
appeal.

315
   To save Belshazzar the 
disgrace of captivity, they 
send him back to his throne.

316
   At the threshold of
death.
   The farewell.

317
   "Honor commands that you 
go with your king to the death 
halls of Allat. Come!" 

318
"To God the glory! 
Long live Cyrus, 
King of Kings and 
Lord of Lords!" 

319
   Justice and restoration.

320
When cannon and prison bars 
  wrought in the fires of intolerance -

321
   And perfect love shall bring 
peace forevermore.

322
   Instead of prison walls -
        Bloom flowery fields.
