THE DAILY STORY
In a well appointed but not luxurious
library two men stood staring; at onch
other. Tho younger, whlte-facetl and
startled, leaned with ono hand on a mn
liotrnny table. The other, older nnd more
calm, smiled with conscious prido and
"Orvllle Weston!" gasped tho younger
man. "You here?"
"You seem scarcely pleased to seo me,
Mnrsden," replied tho visitor coolly, as
ho took a chair. "I Just arrived. Ot
course, you understand."
"N-no. What do you want?"
"I have Just learned ot your remark
able good fortune. It Is not every fellow
who escapes State prison to bo mude cus
todlnn of a young girl's wealth."
"Hush! Sho Is In tho house. Tou
know I was Innocent of that crime."
"Innocent?" sneered Weston. "Of
course, every fellow Is Innocent until he
Is proven guilty. Tho crime was com
mitted." Young JInrsdcn almost reeled. He
glanced nervously tovvord the library
door. It was nearlng midnight.
"I know," said Weston. "She Is with
your undo ami aunt nt the theatre. But
beforo they reach home we'll have a
talk. I'm broke, Marsden."
"So nm I."
"I know you nre. A fellow Just ad
mitted to the bar can't be expected to
have mndo a pile. But you've got Sylvia
Ford's fortune In your keeping."
Marsden, who was not the hardened
man of tho world his unwelcome visitor
was, turned still whiter nnd glanced ap
prehensively toward a small Bafe.
"You give yourself away so plainly. So
it Is there. Is It? What Is It? Cash?
BondB? Something negotiable? Sit down,
I want to talk to you."
Feeling himself weak and powerless In
tho hands of this man ho hated and
feared, Marsden sank Into a chair.
"Remember old Whittaker?" asked
Weston In a soft, reminiscent volco, as
he eyed his companion with tho gaze of
a hypnotist. "What a fad there was
that summer at the lake for tho signa
tures of celebrities? And Whittaker had
Just brought out a book. He was fttl
the rags thero then, and you had the
fever, a well ns the women. Tou had
an autograph booka singularly con
venient one. Itemember, Whittaker put
his signature bn n page perilously hear
the bottom remember?"
Mnradcn's breath was coming; fast and
"And remember a month after that a
draft for $4000 was cashed, signed by
Whittaker, nhd although he swore ho
never gave It, tils nemo was attached,
and ho had to admit the signature?"
"I tho book was Btolcn," whispered
Stnrmlen. "You know who took It."
"Oh, no: I knew nothing about It. But
the book, Willi the mli.tlng page torn
out, could easily have been Identified ns
your own. You know that."
"It was never found." '
"Oh, yes. It wns found. It Is In exist
once today. And the detectives nre not
through with tho case yet. I know
where the book Is, Mnrsden."
"But I nm Innocent. I did not use the
"Hut who would believe you? You
owned tho book. You asked Whittaker
to sign Ills nnme. You said you wanted
him on a page all by himself. He neg
lected to add n verse he left tho page
blank except for his namo. You needed
inonoy. You had money after the draft
to hearer was cashed. Ilcmembcr?"
"My uncle gavo mo that."
"Who would believe It? Don't you
know, Fred Mnradcn, that the production
of that book now, the fitting of the
pngo where It was torn out, your nnmo
on tho rover, would bo cvldenco dilllcult
"My God, yes."
"And you, Just stnrllng out on your
enroor. In lovo with tho most beautiful
girl In your set, with tho world before
you, would probably bo sent to prison
would surely be sent to prison. Do you
think of t'nnt?"
"You dnro notl You cannot!"
"I dnro, enn, nnd will If you do not
obey mo. Listen. I know that you aro
oo-trustco with your undo of Sylvia
Ford's fortune, ntid I know from your
wild look toward the snfo that some of

"Tako your choice." said Weston.
Thoughts that burned llko molten lava
rushed through Marsden's brain. Ho
won no longer master of himself. Like a
rann In n dream ho rose from his rhnlr,
moved by the powerful will of the other,
nnd crossed to the snfo. Instinctively
Weston turned the lights low. Mnrsden
moved like a tnnn walking In his sleep.
Dimly he wns conscious of his lifelong
Innocence, but the words of Weston were
ringing In his cars. And he loved Sylvia
na few men ever love.
Ho opened tho snfe. Thero lay n pllo
of bank notes notes he had drawn from
tho bank Hint afternoon. Ho vaguely
wondered how Weston knew. Thero wns
a dim recollection of seeing a man llko
Weston In tho bank when he drew tho
"There's n light," said a silvery voice.
"Fred must be waiting for us."
AVcston was perplexed. Ho glnnccd
nround. In the library wns a largo
screen. Noiselessly he slid behind that.
Mnrsden did ntjt know. The realization
of whnt ho had tlone had como upon
Marsden now and deprived him ot rea
son. How could he provo that he had
been thrratened With a revolver? How
could he provo that he had not taken tho
money himself? Who would believe that
Weston had walked In and then out ngaln
His brain whirled. Ho wns beside him
self. A beautiful girl In nn opera clonk, with
a smile on her lips, tiptoed to the library
door to surprise the lover In whom sho
had so much confidence. Sho stood horror-stricken
on the threihold.
Mnrsden sat with his head turned
away, with his right elbow resting on
the table, his hnnd raised, and her own
revolver pointed at his head.
She dared not startle him. Sho saw
that he was meditating. Thero was but
n second to spare.
With tho flight of a bird she sprang
to his side.
"Fred!" sho cried, nnd knocked down
the hnnd that held tho weapon.
It exploded. Thero wns n cry from
behind tho screen. It fell toward them,
nnd tho body of Weston, still with his
own revolver In his hand, but with a bul
let from Sylvia's pistol In his heart,
plunged across tho screen to the floor.
"My God!" said Marsden, nnd then ho
In Weston's pocket wns found the nl
bum from which Whlttnlter's name had
been torn. Marsdcn's explanations wero
clear nnd convincing.
A month later ho nnd Svlvla wero mar
ried, but she shudders when she recalls
that night nnd thinks what nnother mo
ment of delay In reaching homo would
have cost her.
WHY IT'S BLUE MONDAY
When the averago man s gallant on
Monday something Is sure to happen.
Harry Craig, who commutes from GOth
nnd Market streets, saw an old woman
drop n glove today and stooped to pick It
up. As he reached for the glove his eye
glasses fell to the floor. Tho woman waB
about to step off tho enr at 13th street
and n second's delay would have mndo It
too late to reach her. The gnllant paB
sengor let the rrlasses lay and handed the
woman her glove.
Tho delay was fatal. A drowsy passen
ger suddenly realized that the door was
about to closo at his station. Ho Jumped
up nnd used Craig's glasses for a door
mat. The only thing discernible on the
floor wns the frame. F.von this was
Craig looked at tho passenger with the
powerful feet In a way which made words
"You had no right to leave your glasses
on tho floor," growled tho man.
It will cost the gallant Craig 7.50 to
repair tho damage. In the gloom thnt

"You-you mustn't," sho murmured.
"I'lonse don't!" . , ..
Ho held out hlfl other hand and half
rose, but her lips suddenly ceased to
quiver and she wnved him bnck.
"No, Leonard," sho begged, "pleaso
don't do or say anything foolish, Since
wo do meet again, though, like this, I
am going to ask you ono question, What
mado you como to mo and nsk me to
marry you that day?"
He looked away; something In her eyes
"Beatrice," ho confessed. "I was a
thick-headed Ignornnt fool, without
understanding. I came to you for safety.
I was afraid of Kllzaboth, I wns afraid
of what I felt for her. I wanted to
escape from It."
Sho smiled plteously.
"And now?" sho asked.
Sho turned nnd faced him. She looked
Into his eyes very scarchlliRly, very wist
fully. "Beatrice," ho Bald, "I aok you once
more, only differently. Will you marry
mo now? I'll find somo work, I'll mnko
enough money for us. Do you romember,"
ho went on, "how I used to talk, how
I used to feel that I had only to put
forth my strength nnd I could win any
thing? I'll feel llko thnt again, Beatrice,,
If you'll como to me."
For the next few days Tavernnko loafed.
On his return ono afternoon from a long
walk, he saw a familiar figure sitting
upon the sea wnll In front of the work
shop, a familiar Ilgure, but n Btrango ono
In thto parts. It was Mr. I'rltchard, In
an American felt hat, and smoking
very black cigar. Ho leaned over and
nodded to TaVcrnake, who was staring
nt him aghast.
"Hallo, old mnnl" he called out nun
you to earth, you scol"
"Yes, I seel" Tavernnko exclaimed,
"Como right along up hero and lets
talk," I'rltchard continued.
Tavernnko oueyed. I'rltchard looked
him over approvingly. Tnvcrnako was
roughly dressed In those days, but na a
man ho had certainly developed.
"Say, you're looking fine," his visitor
remarked. "Whnt wouldn't I glvo for
that color nnd those shouldornl"
"it Is n healthy life," Tavornako ad
mitted. "Do you mean that you've como
down hero to seo me?"
"That's bo," I'rltchard announced;
"down hero to seo you, and for no other
reason. Not but that tho scenery Isn't
all it should be, and that sort of thing,"
he went on, "but I nm not putting up any
bluff about It. It's you I am hero to talk
to. Aro you ready? Shall I go etrulght
"If you please," Tavernnko sold, slowly
lining his pipe.
For a long time Prttchard talked,
straight at Tavernakc. He did not pick
his words, but showed Tavernnko how
vlclouslv foolish had been his attempt to
run away from his obligations. He as
sured Tavernnko that tho only happiness
In storo for him was through labor In a

"Nothlng at all!"
"You noon shall," Prltchard went on.
"Wo'll Btart from Winnipeg. A few
horses, somo guides, and a couple of
tents. We'll spend 20 weeks, my friend,
without seeing a town. What do you
think of that?"
"Gorgeous!" Tavernake muttered.
"Twenty weeks we'll strike westward.
I know tho wny to set about the whole
Job. I know one or two of tho capitalists,
too, and and If wo don't map out some
of tho grandest cstntcs In British
Columbia, why, my namo ain't Prltch

"That's where .you'ro lying," Prltchard
remarked, pulling a newspaper from his
pocket. "Seo tho advertisement for your
self: 'Leonard Tavernake, something to
his advantage.' Well, down I went to
those lawyers your old lawyer It was
Martin. I told him I was on your track,

out of tho room like something nlmlghty.
Why, ho worked that thins bo that they

"I'm coming with you," he Bald at
A week later Tavernake was In London.
A visit to hlfl friend Mr. Martin had
easily proved the truth of Prltchard's
words, and he found himself In possession
of a sum of monoy at least twice as
great as ho had anticipated. He stayed
at a cheap hotel In the Strand and mado
purchases under Prltchard's supervision
When ho felt himself ready he sought out
Beatrice; ugaln he asked her to marry
him. Again she refused, and thinking ot
what ho had told her, she Bent him to
"Why. of course I remember youl" she
exclaimed when he entered her apart

had heard tho name beforo! You are my
dear estate agent's clerk, who wouldn't
tako my money, and why was bo wretch
edly rude to mo 12 months ago."
Tavernake was quite cool, Ha found
himself wondering whether this was n
pose, of whether she had Indeed for

"I was also," he reminded ho. one

"I have thought of you for many hour

She clasped her hands.
"And you mean It, tool" she exclaimed
"Thero Is Just the same delightfully con
