"For days the market has been i
none too strong." Jim explained, j
."A week ago I thought it just one |;
of the not unusual market uncer
tainties. I had my holdings, and |
ihose of our friends, in hand. But '
there came a day when a rumor was |
whispered about. It sent the stock i
down—down—down. That day 1 |
began to buy.
"It vrtis natural, inevitable that 1 '
should buy. Perhaps it was with j'
this hope that whoever started the i:
rumor spread it abroad. I had to | ;
buy—to protect my holdings, to | :
keep the price of the stock up, to j '
safeguard our friends. I thought!'
ordinary conditions everything ' 1
would have been all right. But this !
circumstance isn't ordinary. It is : J
Sweeping his fingers through his , '
hair Jim stopped. I knew that 1 !
ought to say something, but what j (
should I—what could I—say? What j 1
1 ventured was:
"The reason you out me off so 1
sharply when you phoned me at j 1
Tlreamwold—the reason you strode ; '
into the dining room to-night with |
such —Oh, I understand, dear. ;
You've nervous, overwrought, horri- i '
bly worried. But don't worry, dear. , c
You've built up this"—l indicated f
the beautiful room in which we sat, '
the symbol of my Jim's success. '
Jim groaned, and buried his face. '
in his hands. I sprang to my feet
and turned him about to sit upon ;
the couch I had just left. Then Ij 1
sank upon my knees beside him. j ]
put my arms around him and | 1
hugged him tight, holding him close (
to my heart. It was my hope to 1
give him courage.
"Jimmie-boy! Why, Jimmic-boy." j.
I cried. "What you did to bring 1 j
tiiesc things into being you can do j (
to preserve them. Never mind the ■ |
car. Sell the little car if need be. ,
But you—and perhaps 1 may help a j
little, too can bring everthing |
right again! If you need the money ,
sell all these pretty things."
"Anne!" Jim's voice shook. "You '
don't understand! Everything is ; t
mortgaged. 1 had to have money i
to keep the stock from disaster. Do i
>ou understand, now? Everything— i
owned —is—in —pawn! I've borrowed i
to the last thing we possessed." j
My voice refused to sound the i
voids 1 strove to say. But I don't I
think my body trembley as 1 held I
Jim close to me. Somehow I man- i
aged to speak.
"It was yours to sell, to do with
as you wished," I said. "But isn't t
much of this the result of fear? We l
have-—you have—powerful friends j i
who will lend you all you need. '
Yes, I know—your pride! But there j

I "Don't, Anne." Jim's voice was
' very gentle. "Even now you don't
get it. If this were just an ordi
nary thing—if conditions were as
they usually are —it might be done
|as you say. But things aren't
jsrraight. Can't you understand?
| 'l*here"s something down there in
the field that isn't right. .Some
thing about our biggest producer
that is crooked."
"Please explain," I said help
"Listen!" Jim gripped my shoul
der and his words tumbled forth,
one upon another. "Production has
fallen off. The rumor was that I
had faked production records to—
sell slock. I didn't. Did anyone?
Or —did —someone—tamper with the
flow to drive the shares down and
"Everyone of my friends—every

steady the market. I've tried to bull
our stock to save them! You and 1
might face even .poverty again with

how can I—face those who put their
money into this thing of mine, at
my suggestion, hoping to win—only
"I can't. I tell you 1 can't! But
there's one thing I can do. It's the
only decent, honest thing to do. I'm
going to sec 'em through. And the
only way to do it is to trace that
rumor, run down the cause, nail the
crookedness at its source!"
"What are—you—planning? T
asked, fear close to my own heart
now, for Jim's eyes were blazing
with a light which boded no good
for any man implicated, in the de
"What am 1 going to do?" Jim
laughed, his hands clenching ipto
my shoulder until I grasped with the
pain he didn't realize he was caus

cause to its source. I'll nail the
lie. I'll stop this rotten crooked
"But. Jim!" I cried. "How can you }
leave when (he market—when your
stock is still going down?"
"It's stopped. It's steady now.
The crooks know they've bled me
white, so —they've stopped driving
it down. They'll wait. They'll give
me time to gather more money—
weeks perhaps—and then they plan
to bleed me again. But they won't
get the chance. While they wait 1
won't be getting money to feed 'em.
I'll be on their tracks. They won't

The Two Voices
A NEW ROMANCE OF AMERICAN LIFE
(Copyright, 1919, Star Company.)
Doris Courtney lived up to her
resolution not to "sit and mope"
whife Hugli Rodney was away.
Always fond of society, this Au
tumn she seemed to enjoy it more
than ever. Ruth was sometimes
bored by teas, dances and recep
tions. Not so her sister.
"Ruth is younirer than I ani, yet
she actually behaves as it she were
older." Doris confined one evening
to Will Dayton, with whom she
was dancing. Don't you think
she is very grave for lier age?"
Young Dayton hesitated before
answering. "Why, no I do not,"
he said at last, a flush of embar
rassment on his face. "I think she
is quite natural."
Doris smiled to herself. She had
suspected that this fellow was in
love With Ruth, and his words con
firmed her suspicion.
"Well, she is a dear, anyway—
even if she is wiser and more se
date than 1 am," she commented.
The man said no more and Doris
was rather glad when the fox-trot
ended and Will Dayton claimed
, Ruth for the next waltz. Doris
I watched lier sister and felt a
I slight pang of pity for the man
■when his eager greeting brought
no flush of pleasure to Ruth's face
l Doris, on her part, turned to wel
! come Ralph Norton, her partner
for this dance.
"I am glad to have you after Mr.
' Duvton," she smiled. "He bores me
stiff." . , „
"He does not bore Miss Ruth,
| Norton remarked. "1 have been
i wondering if they are going to make
a match of it."
"Oh. 1 don't know,"Doris said.
"I rather hope that Ruth will not
decide too soon on the man she will
marrv. It is a bit of a mistake—
i isn't it?—for a girl to be engaged
fast and firm too early in the ac
tion. It is always possible that she
may change her mind, you know."
Without seeming to do so, she
cast a scrutinizing glance at her
companion. She saw the grim
! clenching of the teeth under the
dark moustache, and felt a thrill
of satisfaction at this outward cvi
i dence of his inward perturbation.
"I wonder how much you know
about that," he asked very low.
"Perhaps you will honor me by giv
ing me your confidence some time."
Purposely she had led him on to
wonder if she were engaged. Not
by open assertion, but by sugges-
I tions that bad awakened his alarm
For she knew that he was falling
in love with her. The knowledge
1 was agreeable. Surely the fact that
she was betrothed to Hugh Rodney
, did not mean that other men must
i avoid her. It was not her faulty if
i they succumbed to her charm. Yet
of course, she loved Hugh best of
Later, in her own room, she said
! as much to Ruth.
The girls had slopped on the sec
; ond floor to bid their mother good
! night, for Mrs. Courtney made it
her boast that she "never slept a
j wink until both the children were
1 safe at home."
"You had a good time, did you?"
"1 will tell you about it to-morrow,
i Go to sleep now."
Then, closing the door between
i her mother's room and her own, she
1 beckoned her sister into her sanc
"Stay here for a few minutes,"
she urged. "I want to talk about
J the dance. I suppose you know
! that Will Dayton is in love with
von. don't you?"
j "Did he tell you so?" Ruth par
ried smilingly. She did not like the
speech, but would not show her
"No. of course not," Doris laughed.
| "But, I can sec it —just as plainly,
i by the way, as T can see that Ralph
Morton is in love with me.'
Her sisters smile faded.
"Dear," she suggested, "is it quite
fair to let him care for you when
you know, you can never return his
Of course I can't -since I love
Hugh so much," Doris aflirmed.
"But it's fair enough for Ralph
knows that 1 am engaged."
Ruth started. "Does he?" she
exclaimed. I thought it was to be
kept a secret for a while."
"So it is—and he will never say
a word about it. 1 did not tell him
of it until tli is evening. But 1
thought it best- —for reasons of m.v
own—do let him know, lie prom
ised to keep quiet about it —anil 1
am certain that he will.
"Oh, T see!" Ruth rejoined, her
She thought she understood why
Doris had confined in young Mor
ton. It was because she thought it
only kind to let him understand
that she could never care for hiin.
Yet when, a few nights later.
Doris accepted an invitation from
Ralph Norton to go to a concert
with him, Ruth was vaguely un
comfortable. She said nothing, but
Doris felt her lack of sympathy,
for she asked abruptly.
"You do not approve of my ac
cepting Ralph's invitation, do you,
"It is no affair of mine, dear sis
ter." Ruth rejoined. "Only if the,
man is in love with you. it but adds
fuel to the flame to he with you?"
"No." was the blunt rejoinder.
"Yet you accept attentions from
him." Doiis accused.
"Bui I am not engaged to some
one else." her sister, said.
J. "I told you that Ralph knows of
my engagement," Doris reminded
The argument sounded unanswer
able, yet it left Ruth uneasy. She
had a fear that Hugh's happiness
was not secure, and she had prom
ised to keep it safe for him.
