TUB CITIZEN, FRIDAY, Al'ltllj 1, 1010.

Copyright. 1909. by Mitchell KennerUy
HAVING decided upon his course
of nctlon, Mr. Devlno prompt
ly sought out the obsequious
Tlmmlns at his office In the
"Been hero some time, haven't you.
Tlmmlns?' ho suggested.
"Came hero ns undcrgroom fifteen
years ngo, sir."
"Must know tho old gentleman fair
ly well, then?"
"Lor yes, sir! And he's a very lino
old gentleman, sir, in his way."
"Sure," assented the Cherub. He
had settled back In nn office chair and
was studying intently tho varnished
pine celling. "But what's his way?"
he asked abruptly.
Tlmmlns looked perplexed.
"Where are his short ribs?" went on
Mr. Devine. "What's his strong suit?"
"Oh!" Tlmmlns had translated Mr.
Devine's figures of speech. "Well, sir,
he's all wrapped up in tho Countess
Vecchl, sir. him being a widower for
so long. Nearly knocked him out
when the count turned out to bo so
bad. Ho was regular wicked, sir;
played roulette most of the time. Why.
they hadn't more'n left the church be
fore he asks the countess for money
and chokes her when she wouldn't get
it for him."
"Who made that inntch, Tlmmlns?"
"Mr. Hewlugtou himself, Bir. Ho
was carried away with the Idea of his
daughter being a countess."
"Banks heavy on society, does he?
Do the Howingtons cut much of a fig
ure now in the giddy whirl?"
"Lor, no, sir. Since they lost their
money they've kind of dropped out of
it all. It goes hard with the old gen
tleman, too, sir."
Mr. Devlno smoked thoughtfully for
several moments before asking, "Any
real swell neighbors around here?"
"Lots of 'em, sir. It's a very select
neighborhood, sir, as you'll find. Why.
just above us are the Wilburs Knick
erbockers, sir. Above them are the
Miller-Tremways youngest daughter
married into tho Earl of Dlppingtou's
family and was received at court.
And nest below us are tho Wallo
ways, folks that has their own coat
of arms and"
"Not Nick Walloway?"
"He's the head of the family now.
sir, Nicholas Is."
"So Nick is n neighbor of mine, is
"But they're very exclusive, the Wal
loways arc, sir. They entertain lots
of titled folks. They used to be very
friendly here, sir, but none of them's
been hero now for nearly two years."
"Then It's time they came," declared
Mr. Devine. "How about the other
olks, the Wilburs and thcTremways?"
"Haven't been hero for a long time
"Very thoughtless of them, Isn't it?
But we'll fix that, nitch up two or
three of those gingersnap horses and
take me over to the Walloway place."
"Today, sir?" Tlmmlns stared his
' No; right away."
"But it's-It's Sunday, sir. Begging
your pardon for being so bold, sir, but
the Walloways don't receive on Sun
days, sir, and they've got a bishop
"Good! I'm right nt home when
there's a bishop around. And I'll see
about the receiving business. You
just attend to the hooking up, Tlm
mlns." So Tlmmlns did, but it was with
much coiwern for his professional dig
nity that ho drove up to the Imposing
carriage entrance of the Walloway
residence. Tho reception opened quite
as he had feared. In fact, the Wallo
way butler, who weighed twice as
much as Epplngs and was haughtier
In proportion, was coldly doubtful as
to whether or not Mr. Nicholas Wal
loway could bo seen. He surveyed the
Hewlngton cobs with withering scon
and glanced with disapproving eye at
Mr. Devine's tobacco brown waist
coat. "I don't think Mr. Walloway Is re
ceiving today," he observed.
"Oh. that'll be all right, fatty." cheer
fully remarked Mr. Devine. "You
trot along In nnd tell Nick that Cherub
Devine Is out here."
The Walloway butler gasped. Tlm
mlns trembled In his seat. Two min
utes later Mr. Nicholas Walloway,
much perplexed and not a little embar
rassed, was escorting Mr. Devine past
tho awful presence of the stout butler
and Into th house.
A clean cut young man of Bcdate,
somewhat stiff bcaiiug and with sobr
gray eyes was Mr. Nicholas Wallo
way. No one but the Cherub, not even
Mr. Walloway's most Intimate friends,
ever dreamed of calling blm Nick.
Mr. Dcrlne had never honored
young Mr. Walloway with a social
call before, but he had dropped In
onco or twice at the new offices of
Walloway & Co., nnd his reception had
been extremely cordial. In fact, Mr.
Nicholas Walloway had felt himself
singularly favored, and be snld so,
for his firm, In spite of the heavy
mahogany desks and other expensive
ofllco trappings which seemed to pro
claim a prosperous stability, was woe
fully lacking in just such customers
as Mr. Devlno could bo if bo chose.
To have the handling of sotno of the
Cherub'M extensive business would es
tablish the firm on n hitst where ma
hogany furniture would be something
more than an enterprising irt'.siiiiip
tlon. Mr. Devine assumed that If Mr.
Walloway was glad to see him In uU
ofllco he would' feel the same nbout
welcoming hltn to his home. That
this was hardly a safe line of reason
lug any one who knew the Wnllo
ways at all would have known. Just
a glance at the slight wrinkle between
the gray eyes should lmvu suggested
that Mr. Walloway was somewhat per-
plcxed and not a little 111 ut ease. But
If tho Cherub saw these Indications he
gave no hint. Mr. Walloway mur
mured something nbout a stock deal.
"Deal?" responded tho Cherub light
ly. "No; I'm not anxious nbout any
deal, nt least not today. But. by the
way, I expect your firm will get some
orders nlong nbout Tuesday. Sure
thing! Yes; it is something nbout I'..
Z. and N. Heard about that, did you?
Well, I'll need you Tucsdny. I've had
my eye on you for somo time, nnd now
that I'm a neighbor of yours Yes;
that's right. Got the next place above,
Hewlngton Hods, or Acres, or some
thing." "Do you mean to say that you own
Hewlngtoti Acres? When did you got
"Oh, I bought It a couple of mouths
ago, but I Just ran up Friday night to
look the place over. Soy. It Isu't n
bad place, Is It, Nick?"
"No, Indeed. But what has become
of tho Hewlngtons?"
"They're there yet, but they don't
mingle much with me. I'm not lu
their clnss, it seems. Say, Nick, 1 wish
you could have heard the countess tell
ing uie what she thought of me last
night. You know the countess, of
Mr. Nicholas Walloway looked n bit
uncomfortable for n moment. "I used
to know her very well, but I haven't
seen her since she went abroad and
married the count."
"She's a good deal of a hummer, tho
countess is." suggested the Cherub
"not one of your front row ninazous.

you know, but a real nice little lady.
Plenty of ginger about her, too, I
should imagine. If she was stirred up."
It was with difficulty that Mr. Wal
loway found any response to make.
"Then then you have made the ac
quaintance of Ad of the Countess Vec
chl?" "Oh, sure! We've had a couple of
cozy little chats together. I'vo bad a
talk with the old gentleman too. And,
say, between 'em, hearing what they
both think of me, I've got my chin
down on my breastbone and my tnll
curled between my legs like a yellow
dog that's been run over by a truck."
"You mean that they are unfriendly
"Well, that hardly does the case Jus
tice, but It'll pass. And "that's what
fetches mo hero this morning. You
see, I'vo planned to stick it out there
for another day or so. And, say, Nick,

"You you wish mo to visit you at

ment 'Sure! Nothing formal, you know;
Just an offhand dropping in, same as

Mr. Walloway stared at him with a
fascinated Interest. The Cherub smil
ed blandly, confidently. In return.
"But we we there aro guests, you
know," weakly protested Mr. Wallo
way. "Guests? Well, bring 'em along. 1
don't mind. The more tho merrier."
Mr. Walloway hnstencd to mention
that ono was a bishop and named him
Mr. Devine slapped his knee Joyously.
"What! The fuuny llttlo old chap
with tho white sldo whiskers and an
equator llko a Broadway cop? Is he
dowu here? Say, Nick, that bishop Is
tho real article, he is. Know him!
Well, you usk blm about coming over
on the Lucaula with Cherub Devine.
Tell him I left u special Invitation for
him and sec what be says."
"I will consult my mother. Thank
you very much, Mr. Dovlno."
"Oh. that's all right And, say,
Nick, while you're about It just round
up a few of tho neighbors for me, will
you? Those Wilburs and hyphen
Tremways nnd any others you think
will do. Bring u mob the house Is big

The baron's all right too, Oh. he'll
remember me. Say. what's the proper
enper for a Sunday night spread in?
Half past 8! Well, call It Ni.lO then
So long, Nick."
If the Cherub had used roH-s and
straps ho could uot have left young
Mr. Walloway more Incapable of muv
lug from the chair in which he was
sitting. For a long period he stared
vaguely into space without stirring.
Onco or twlco his lips murmured n
name. It sounded something like
Adcle. Gradually, however, the Wal
loway chin resumed Its usual firmness.
A look of resignation crept Into the
gray eyes. Ho rose stlllly, walked to
the window and stared out
"Perhaps perhaps." he faltered,
CONSTERNATION fell upon Ep
plngs when It occurred to Mr.
Devine. along about, 2 o'clock,
to inform him that guests
were expected ut supper.
"Beg pardon, sir, but It Is Impossible,
sir. Wo aro not prepared. There's
only a small filet In tho house, air. and
not n duck not n single duck."
"Hnvo squab, then."
"But, sir. we haven't"
"Oh, don't go on telling mo what you
haven't got. Hash up anything. Make
some sandwiches If you enn't do bet
ter. Only don't come to mo with your
troubles. I'm no chef. But I'm going
to have some friends hero tonight, and
I shall expect you to feed them. That's
what you're hero for, isn't it?"
"Yo-e-e-es, sir. At what hour, sir?"
"And how how many plates, sir?"
"I don't know. Ten or fifteen or
twenty. Better make It twenty, nnd
then you can discard."
"I'll do my best, sir."
"That's the way to talk. Eppiugs."
Having made these olThand prepara
tions. Sir. Devine sat himself down on
the veranda. He heard a step and
loofted up to see before him the aris
tocratic figure of the Countess V ocelli's
father. Mr. Howlngton seemed some
vv hat agitated.
"You must pardon me, sir, for a
seeming Impertinence." he began, "but
1 have Just learned by nccldent that
you contemplate giving u party here
tonight. Is It n fact?"
Mr Devine nodded. "Just a few
friends, a dozen or so."
"Ah! Friends of yours?" Mr. Hew
lugtou gave the words a significant
emphasis. "Then would It not be er
prudent perhaps discreet is the bet
ter word for my daughter to go else
where for tho night to the hotel in
the village perhaps?"
There was a twinkle in the Cherub's
blue eyes as be responded, "Afraid of
a rough house, are you?"
"My daughter, sir. is not exactly ac
customed to er the kind of persons
"Oh. I see. Well, suit yourself nbout
it suit yourself. But it isn't at all
necessary. I shall try to keep them
quiet. There are to bo only a few
neighbors (he Walloways and"
"Yes. nnd tho Wilburs and the Miller-Tremways
and old Bishop Uorton
and a stray baron or two."
"Bishop Horton! Is Bishop norton
comiug? Coming here?"
"Why. yes. The bishop's a friend of
mine. Know him, do you?"
"We were college classmates. Mr.
Devine." said Mr. Hewlngton.
"That so! I never went to college
with tho bishop, but I've crossed the
ocean with him twice, and once I held
his hat while he made a speech."
"Extraordinary!" said Mr. Hewlng
ton. "Think so? It may seem n little
queer to you. but the bishop doesn't
appear to look at It that way. Come
down and meet him nnd the rest of
the folks, won't you? We're to have
a little supper about half past 8. And.
say, bring tho countess that Is. unless
you're afraid of tho crowd."
This Inst was n violation of u para
graph fn the Cherub's own code of
zthlcs, n paragraph which read, "When
the other fellow's down nnd out don't
rub It in." But the words had escaped
before ho knew It Fortunately Mr.
Hewlngton did not seem to notice the
allusion, for ho retired, repeating In an
undertone: "The Walloways! Bishop
Horton! The MIIler-Tremwnys!"
And sure enough, early In the even
ing tho big rooms of tho great house
began to echo with tho lively chatter
of many guests. There was tho portly
Mrs. Walloway, whose dinner dances
are always such brilliant affairs; there
wero tho haughty Wilburs, the hyphen

ers without whoso names and pic
tures tho Sunday supplements would
They wero somewhat disposed to

patted him affectionately on tho shoul

braced him tho utmosphero thawed
Tho ono person who was least at bis
ease was young Mr. Walloway. For
awhile ho was stlffer than ever, nnd ho
bad the air of one who expects somo
thing very embarrassing to happen.
But tho Cherub was undisturbed.
Thus far ho had gained his point
Whether Nick Walloway had been in
fluenced by that suggestion of futuro
business or whether ho had acted pure-
i.v noin uiotlVes of good fellowship lie

The program which the I'liorub Imd
so hastily outlined Hint morning was
being curried out. Moreover, his guests
appenred to bo enjoying tin- novelty
In the course of half tin hour eveu
Nick Wullowny seemed to have be
come reassured-tlmt nothing untoward
was about to hnppcn. As a mutter of
fact, Mr. Devine wns acquitting him
"Isn't he unique? So charmingly
nnlvol" whispered Mrs. Mlller-Trem-way.
"Perfectly delightful!" assented Mrs.
Wilbur. "He snys such odd things."
"So glad you're to be n neighbor of
ours." the latter assured Mr. Devine.
"And how do you llko Howlngton
"Oh. It's n good deal like living in
Central park." observed the Cherub;
"grass looks as if It had had a shave,
a hair cut nnd n shampoo, you know!
AH tho place lacks aro some benches
nnd nurses nnd baby carriages. 1 may
have to bring those up hero until 1 get
used to It."
"Is It true, Mr. Devine." demanded
Mrs. Walloway. "that you started on
your financial career with only n few

"Why. I've seen the tlmo when It
would have made me dizzy Just to
think of having n whole thousand!"
"Do tell us nbout It. Mr. Devine."
urged Mrs. Wilbur, adjusting her lor
gnette. "Go ahead, Cherub. 1 want to hear
that yarn, too," seconded Nick Wallo
way. "That was before you came
cast wasn't It?"
"Yes; thnt was In Chicago." said the
Cherub. "I began as office boy and
"IN IlKTnEATl WHAT DO TOU MEAN, DE
VINE?" drew down the princely salary of $3
a week. I was saving to go Into busi
ness for myself. There was a pie
and coffee stand around the corner
from our office, and I had my eye on
that. 1 thought it would bo a fine
thing to sell pie and coffee and bo my
own boss. So I got the fellow's price
for the outfit He wanted 575, nnd it
seemed to me as though he'd asked
for enough to pay off the national debt.
But 1 saved the seventy-five and n few
dollars more for n sinking fund.
"Then I resigned. I rather expected
the firm to go under when they got
thnt blow. They didn't, though.
"When I went around to tho plo and
coffee man with my seventy-five ho
laughed and told me to brush by. nis
sales hud jumped ten pies a day, and
he had put his price up to an even
hundred. For nbout five minutes
things looked to me as the wash does
wheu they get too much bluing In the
tub. Then I braced up and squan
dered CO eo'its on the first real feed I'd
hud for a year.
"After that It was sunrlso again. I
drifted Into a place where they were
selling dollar options on July wheat,
and the first thing I knew I was plung
ing like ii porpoise. Inside of two
hours 1 had almost $.".00 'in my pock
et, and I know how a -Rothschild feels.
I went back to the stand, shook my
roll at the pie butcher and did a lot of
other fool things, all meant to show
tho folks that I was It
"Next day I hunted up a regular
broker and begnn to speculnte, nice
nnd proper, on margins. 1 hadn't
been nt that more than n week before
I hit the market right, nnd I'vo been
hitting It ever since, except when it's
hit me. Oh, yes, it lilts buck now and
then. Just to show me"
Ho ended his story abruptly.
"What's that, Epplngs? Did you
say supper? Good! Como on, folks;
let's seo whnt the cook has found lu
Probably the Wilburs and tho Miller-Tremways
hud never been sum
moned to dlno in just that fashion be
fore. Perhaps the novelty pleased
them, for they wero In high good hu
mor. They told each other that Mr.
Devlno was delightfully original.
In splto of Epplngs' fears It wns u
very good supper, but Mr. Devine took
no uote of It Ho was thinking about
It was toward the close of tho af
fair that the bishop took Mr. Devine
ono sldo and asked, "Do you kuow
what has become of tho Howingtons?"
"Surol" said tho Cherub. "They're
all upstairs In retreat"
"In retreat! What do you mean,
"It's bocause of mo, you know.
They don't approve of me. Mr. Hew

"Now. If that isn't Just llko Do Oour

"So I've heard."
"If you don't mind. Dovlno. I'll run

"Oh. help yourself. They're some

bishop. But he had not reckoned on

"No. no; 1 couldn't think of It," firm

So tho bishop went back alone.

them had gone, Mr. Cherub Devine.
groping nbout for some (lttlng term to
express the situation, remarked enlg
"That's whnt 1 call playing a four
flush against a full house. Guess I'll
tako another stack, though."
Which meant thnt the audacious
soul of Mr. Devine was humbled, but
He had tried to demonstrate to Mr.
Hewlngton that his cstlmato of Cherub
Devine ns ono of the socially unfit was
a mlstnken Judgment But evidently
he had demonstrated nothing of the
kind. The ncwlngtons had given him
no chance to show what he could do
In that lino. Well, should he quit
then? Mr. Devlno allowed himself to
smllo grimly. Almost any one In Wall
street could have told you what thnt

The Dust of the Earth.
Expecting a visit from the super
intendent of an adjacent Sunday
school ono Sunday afternoon, ono
enterprlsng teacher, anticipating tho
line of questions which would be
as .ed of tho scholars, selected a boy
from her class to answer each ques
tion. As alio had flgurod It out, tho
visitor would first ask the pupils the
question, "Who made you?" and
tho pupil was, of course, to answer
"God." The next question was to
be "Of what?" to which the answer
was to bo "Of the dust of the earth."
Unfortunately between the time Sun
day school was called to order and
the visiting superintendent had Uik
on the floor, tho first pupil was tak
en sick and obliged to go home. The
teacher did not have tho opportunity
to readjust her force, and when the
first question was asked, tho second
boy thought it a good opportunity
fo; him to get his answer and get It
off his mind; so to the question,
"Y.'ho made youT" he answered, "Of
the dust of the earth."
"Oh, no," said the visitor. "God
"No, sir; He did not," said tho
youngster. "The little boy that God
made has gono homo sick, and I am
