How a Light In a Window Caused

Ills name was Robert Bryce. He
was an attorney, and the law of pat
ents was the Held wherein he reaped
an excellent harvest of fees. Ills
friends called him "Lucky Bob."
A man would naturally prefer to
havo his successes credited to his abil
ity rather than to ills luck, yet It was
not for this reasou that Bryee disliked
bis nickname. It offended him because
It was a He. The fates had done him
an 111 turn, and all their favors were
Three yenrs ago, when Bryce was
twenty-six, he met Martin L. Itandall,
who paid him well for a small profes
sional service. The money camo just

struggling hard to get n foothold In In

rich man. lie had manufacturing inter

of patented machinery and the making
it patented articles. He took a fancy
to Bryco. Intrusted him with Important
affairs, kept hlni in fuuds, advised him
In tho investment of his surplus. In
vited him to bis home.
Friendship sprang up between the
men despite tho great difference In
their years. They were constantly
teen together. It was current talk that
Bryco's fortune was made, and his col
lege nickname, Lucky Bob, was heard
again on the Hps of his associates.
On his first visit to Ilandall's home
Bryce dined with tho family, only one
of whom bad a drop of blood in com
mon with Itandall. This was bis sis
ter, a widow and childless. The others
were n Mrs. Lorlug and her daughter
Amy nnd a young man named Ballard
Dillon. Randall had been a cavalry
olllcer In the civil war and In those
flays'cnpable of romantic friendships
Mrs. Lorlng was the widow of a com
rade In arms. Dillon was the sou of
mother. The lady had boon left witli
some small means In trust with Itan
dall. Dillon was a penniless orphan
who had fallen Into tho lap of luxury.
Amy Lorlng was not yet eighteen
wlipti Bryce first saw her. She
seemed to him a very pretty and well
bred girl and nothing more.
The Ilrst warning that Bryce re
ceived camo from Itaudall at the
house one evening. Amy and Dillon
happened to be standing together in a
sood light nnd accidentally posed with

"A handsome couple," said Itandall.

been blessed with a share of it.
It was not long after this that Ran
flnll conveyed to Bryce definitely the
Intelligence that Amy and Dillon were
Intended for each other. Increasing
misery was Bryco's portion from that
hour, and the word "lucky" coupled
with his nanio was bitter mockery.

woman should not marry a man though
she loves him. There Is no reason
why she should marry him if she

loves hi in not. All debts nrc canceled,
all gratitude vanishes, tho wisdom of
wise counselors is folly, tho dictates
of worldly prudence are as rash as
loudness, if they urge toward marriage
Such was Bryco's philosophy, and
you may Imagine his feelings at the
spectacle presented in Raudnll's homo.
Mrs. Lorlng nnd Itandall were crea
tures of unchangeable decision. They
had decided upon this marriage long
ago. The Idea of It had grown into
their bones. As for Amy, she bad
known Dillon since her childhood and
bad liked him and disliked blm and
quarreled with blm and made it up.
The girl ejeerted u strong attraction
upon Dillon, and there wero moments
when bo fancied himself deeply in
lovo with her. Theso wero the mo

Randall wns bitterly disappointed.
Ho gavo up the enso for lost and ns

when in a bad mood. Ho and the
Lorlngs and Ballard Dillon went to
the Muskoka lakes. In the highlands
of Ontario. Itaudall had some thought
of buying extensive property there aud
building a summer residence.
Bryce was left to struggle with the

Room 028 was furnished in n style
of arid simplicity. Thero wore two
chairs and a desk. Bryco took up one
of the chairs and broke the desk's lock.
"You may have me arrested for this
tomorrow. .Ilmuilo," said he, "but don't
bother me now."
He searched the desk, made up a
packngo of papers, chiefly memoranda
in pencil, nnd turned to Long, who
was fluttering about in a high fever.
"Sit down," said Bryce. "I'll tell
you a story."
The story served Its purpose and re

Three days later, about sunset,
Bryce landed from a steamer on the
Muskoka lakes at the pier of the hotel
called the Cliff. Thero was nn un

for so early in the season. Obviously
tho Cliff had made a better start than
In the steep path which led to the
hotel Bryco met Amy Lorlng, and de
spite the dusk ho saw at once that she
was changed. Her habitual manner
had been somewhat grave. It was
now all sprlghtliness and the thrill of
Joyous life. She walked like a wood
nymph under tho great arch of trees,
and thero was magic in her glance.
Bryce, on tho contrary, was depress
ed by his errand, which burdened hi in
with the most serious questions of
duty. Ho felt the gloom that was upon
him and was not surprised that Amy
should mistake its cause.
"You have lost the suit," said she
and would havo proceeded to make
light of it, but lie Interrupted her.
"On the contrary." said he, "I have
won. I went crazy on the last day
and made a speech which was a won
drous triumph of rhetoric over law
and common sense. Sympathetic In
sanity seized upou tho jury, and they
decided in my favor. Whero is Mr.
"He has gone out upon a launch, I
don't know where."
"Mr. Dillon is with blm?"
Bryco regarded her keenly.
"Some misunderstanding has arisen
between them?" said be.
"I violate no coutldeuce." sho replied,
"for you will bo Informed as soon as
you see Mr. Randall. Mr. Dillon has
been speculating and has Involved
himself in serious dllllculty. Mr. Ran
lall is greatly displeased."
Bryce understood as clearly as pos
sible that Amy saw her own relenso in
this and that sho was unablo to re
strain her Joy even though It camo
through another's misconduct and dis
grace. This was exactly Bryce's own
position. He carried in his pocket the
absolute proof of Dillon's treachery

the suit so hurdly won. Despite the
obligations of honor which rivalry in

Bryce obeyed because he knew Dil

Bryco got Into the boat, and Dillon
followed him. sitting In the stern and
commanding Bryce to take the oars.
"Now pull." said he and pointed
with the revolver.
A few strokes brought tho boat out
Into the sweep of the wind, and she
began to drive off short at a lively

In a flash Bryco saw into the other's

Dillon safe. His silence would not be
secured by n promise, but by n pistol
shot and the waters of the lake.

on the veranda of tho Cliff, and nn in

him. Ho was never seen again.
Bryco worked his way to shoro with
