It is not myself. It is the new spirit. The surest way to kill it - and it can be killed, like any other living thing - is to get it connected with any political party.'
`Why don't you see the Bishop?' said Cipriano. `I will see him too. Am I to be chief of the division in the west for nothing?'
'Yes,'said Ramon slowly, `I will see Jimenez. I have thought of it. Yes, I intend to use every means in my power. - Montes will stand for us, because he hates the Church and hates any hint of dictation from outside. He sees the possibility of a "national" church. Though-myself, I don't care about national churches. Only one has to speak the language of one's own people. You know the priests are forbidding the people to read the Hymns?'

`I would like,' he said, smiling, `to be one of the Initiates of the Earth. One of the Initiators. Every country its own Saviour, Cipriano: or every people its own Saviour. And the First Men of every people, forming a Natural Aristocracy of the World. One must have aristocrats, that we know. But natural ones, not artificial. And in some way the world must be organically united: the world of man. But in the concrete, not in the abstract. Leagues and Covenants and International Programmes. Ah! Ciprianoi it's like an international pestilence. The leaves of one great tree can't hang on the boughs of another great tree. The races of the earth are like trees; in the end
