Love vs. Ambition.
Attorney James Lownsdnle was a
self-centered man. That Is apt to be
the case with self-made men. It Is, to
be more frank, their besotting sin.
He had begun Ufc poor. He was win
ning in the racCbecausc his handi
caps were offset by grim and somewhat
unlovely determination. When he was
sixteen years old ho bad heard boys of
seventeen discourse on love, and be had
said in a shrill, boyish treble: "I'll
never let sentiment stand in the way
ot my success."
Even after his voice had undergone
tho transformation from that shrill
treble to a profund bass, bo bold to
bis determination. Now ho was 3S and
he "was talked of" for Judge of the
Supremo court In bis state.
For five years lie had been giving
his legal udviee free to Sirs. Mary Slar
ston and her daughter, Mildred. They
bad needed such advice sorely, for when
the vice president of the Commercial
bank died it was found that the affairs
of the bank were in a precarious con
dition. Ten days after his death tho
bank failed. James Lownsdalc called
to condole with tho widow and her
daughter, and had offered to do what
ho could to make Intact ugaln the shat
tered fabric of their fortune. He had
no idea of how great the task was, and
ho found himself knitting together a
few shreds instead of a mass. Ho dis
liked his task of telling her so, but ho
found courage to tell her one night that
one might live upon the Income of the
slight' remnant of their fortune; it
might support one with rigid economy.
But two? That was impossible.
Slildred Slarston slipped a comforting
arm on her mother's neck.
"That will provide for you, mamma,
dear," she said. "And I've gotten a
position at a living salary with a pub
James Lownsdalc looked at her at
tentively for the first time. One of tho
characteristics of self-centered persons
is that they are short-sighted. He had
known the banker's family ever since
he left college, but he had never no
ticed that Slildred had grown up. She
was a tall beauty, of the Irish type,
with black hair and violet eyes that
might have laughed at one time, but
looked as though they never would
James Lowns'dale called often that
winter. Perhaps his purpose was to
lighten the loneliness of the two wo
men, but if he permitted himself such
unselfishness he was compensated. He
found It very pleasant to sit opposite
Slildred at the fire and watch her deft
bands at her embroidery or sewing.
"You make me very comfortable,"' he
said, smiling lazy thanks as she pushed
a hassock toward him.
She applied herself diligently to hem
ming n tablecloth.
"I like this," he reflected aloud. It's
Slildred blushed. She never talked
much. Lownsdnle hud a fancy for
"I lovo you," ho said, pushing the
tablecloth from her lap and taking
both the busy hands. Again she said
nothing. Sho blushed furiously, and
there were tears In her eyes, but th"re
was hapiness In them, nevertheless.
"I love you, hut I have my way to
make still, I have no right to talk of
Slildred was satisfied. There was
a soporific influence In those familiar
but delightful words, "I lovo you."
Lownsdnle did not think It necessary
to repeat those words. "When u man
tells a woman once Unit ho loves her
that is enough,"- he said. So life went
on as before,
Ho it befell that Mlldrc'd Slarston
was often lonely. Her mind became
the stalking ground of doubt and re
sentment. Her business life was a
narrow one, Into which few strangers
entered, Her old friends had drifted
out of her life, Sho met almost no
one. That may be the reason that" no
one else found place lu this sore heart,
which was almost as easy of access as
