Tho controversy In St. Paul Church
came Into public view In January, when
the Rev. Doctor Lee charged Charles M.
Wllklns, former church treasurer, with
being an embezzler and said that tho
ciders of the church were shielding; him.
Ocorgo Wcntworth Carr, as attorney for
the ex-treasurer, filed a suit against Doc
tor Leo when he failed to make the de
manded retraction. The suit was later
withdrawn and then the Board of Ciders
demanded the resignation of the minister.
The Presbytery finally appointed a com
mlttco to Investigate.
The report of the committee was read

Throwing- a fresh slick on the fire, Dick

room which the dancing flames lighted tip

Looking nt the young man over his
spectacles, Mr. HobhliiH Mild gravely.
"Then you aro not nware that Mr.
Clifton left a daughter and a grand
child?" Dick turned palo nnd all nt once there
was a curious pounding irv his cars.
'No! It simply can't he! Ho would havo

"It seems that he did not. His daugh

never forgave her. She Is now a widow,
a confirmed Invalid, and vory poor. Her

strength for the baro necessities of life.
I sent word to them, but it nppcars they
did not recclvo It In time to come."
There was a silence which neither of
tho two reemed disposed to break. Dick's
forehead glistened with perspiration He
swept a shaking hand across It.
"Of course I understand why you tell
me this," he cried huskily. "You think
I havo no right to tho property and
should give It up!"
The old minister frowned nnd was
silent Dick glanced llngerlngly around
"I won't do It!" he cried with half angry
vehemence. "If Mr. Chilton had wanted

Mr. Robblns rose nnd picked up his hat
from the table.
"I regret exceedingly your decision," he
said coldly. "Frankly, I'm disappointed
In you. Clood-nlght, sir." And he walked
out of the room.
Dick sat for a long time gazing Into
the fire. His cheeks were flushed. The
discarded daughter wa nothing to him.
He would be a fool to abdicate In her
favor. Nd doubt Vie deserved all that
had befallen her, and even worse.
Presently his thoughts turned to Alice.
"How I wish It were morning that I
might go to her," ho said aloud.
He smiled and jet n heaviness lay on
his heart. The sd face of tho woman
whose birthright he had stolen seemed
to stare at him reproachfully from the
corners of tho room. It even framed
Itself In the smouldering logs ns they
bla7cd up fitfully and fell npart.
The doorbell rang again. After a long
delay the door opened to admit Mrs.
Burke, the old housekeeper. Hhe was
pale with suppressed emotion.
"Another visitor'" he exclaimed with
annoyance. "Who Is It?"
"Mr. Chilton's granddaughter, sir,"
was the startling response.
Dick sprang to hlj feet.
"The poor child did not learn of her
grandfather's dea'h until today, sir. Tho

"What does she want?" His voice had
a strangely harsh, unnatural sound.

him. Hut It would be churlish to refuse.

As Dick started In that direction Mrs
Burke laid her hand upon his arm.
"One moment, sir; I'd like to tell vou
something. The girl loves a worthy man
n.i poor as herself. Thoy can never marry
now. I'm sorry for thorn both."
Sho turned half fiercely; but beforo he
could speak his anger was swallowed up
in pity. The caso appealed to him strong'
ly. Wat the structure of his happiness
to he built upon tho ruin of two lives? tf
ho robbed this girl of her Inheritance
what was left to her?
With these thoughts whirling In his
brain he started on again with heavy,
shuffling steps. The girl sat beforo the
kitchen fire, her faca in her hands. Dick
saw the drooping figure as through a
red mist Ho began speaking rapidly. In
a tenso voice, as If hnlf afraid to trust
"I'm a selfish brute. At first I didn't

legacy that means everything to you"
At his first word n tremor hnd shaken
the bowed figure. She lifted her head
suddenly with a startled exclamation.
Ho stood staring All nt once the mist

"Alice! It Is Alice?" He said In
credulously, She, the quicker to grasp the situation,

"Dick, Oh, Dlckl Nobody told me the

my birthright. I never dreamed It was

That Is why I meant to go away with

The words died In an Inarticulate mur-

against his heart.
