to meet his glance fairly; but her own

"Both of them."

that you can restore to the people

"And miserable if we fall?" queried
the girl with a nervous laugh.

"And I may fail, too," answered
Gormly very quietly. "Such achieve-

one man's efforts. The people them-
selves must respond. Whether I can

termine the issue."

Mr. Haldane Is Greatly Surprised.
Mr. Haldano was in something of a
quandary For certain reasons and for
some time he had been contemplating
an interview with Gormly. Not only
did he greatly desire the Interview
which was indeed necessary, almost
vital in fact, to the furtherance of cer-
tain matters in which he was deeply
concerned, but he did not desire that
j his Interest, personal interest, that Is
I In the affair should appear
! Tne opposition had greatly undnr-
ratad the character and ability aI
Oormly. The Gotham Weight Trac-
tion company, for instance, had pooh-
poohed him at flrat, and even now,
though the public press was filled
with accounts of him and his doings,
they still greatly undereatimated his
qualities. Haldane himself had joined
in this depreciation until he had met
Gormly He had as yet enjoyed no;
opportunity of conversation with him,
save In a general way, as has been
seen; but he was accustomed to deal
with men, and he saw instantly that
he was face to face with a personal-
ity at once able, courageous, deter-
mined. and strong.
Behold the two men seated on either
side of the bright fire In the library,
Haldane smoking one of Gormly's ex-
cellent Ilavanaa; glasses, bottles, and
ice on a little table at hand. He had
disapproved of Mrs. Haldane's man-
ner. not because he thought It unsuit-
ed to the occasion, but on account of
the peculiar qualities and characteris-
tics of Gormly and the relationship In
which he stood to certain matters of
importance. He had been Inclined on
the first entrance to follow his wife s
patronizing, arrogant assumption of
superiority; but now he strove to In-
fuse all the geniality and cordiality
possible into his voice and manner.
On the other hand. Gormly natural-
ly had a deep interest In Haldane. As
the father of the woman he loved, he
would necessarily be a great factor
in the battle he meant to wage for her
hand. Ills consent and influence,
while not absolutely essential, would
naturally be of great value. If he
could by any means win the support
and countenance of the great financier,
his dream would be by that much the
more easy of realization. He had an
Idea, however, that this would be im
possible That did not daunt him or
render him the less alert To win
Haldane's consent possibly might be
no more practicable than to win Miss
Haldane's consent. Yet Gormly was
accustomed to attempt the impossible,
and nine times out of ten to achieve
it. That Haldane had any relation-
ship, or could have any relationship,
to him other than that of a prospect-
ive father-in-law never entered hla
head. That was sufficient to render
the Interview memorable to him.
The conversation began with a re-
mark from the older man about the
weather. I have long wondered why
the weather is the ataple inaugural
"I have rarely experienced so severe
a snowstorm," said Haldane blandly.
"I have been coming down to Long
Island in winter off and on ever since
I was a boy, and this surpasses any-
thing within my knowledge."
"It is bad enough for New York," re-
pponded Gormly. "Here when the
temperature gets down to the zero
mark and the wind blows thirty or
forty miles an hour, and it snows hard
all day. we call it a blizzard
At that last remark, though Haldane
had no ostensible connection with the
street department, or an} othOr de-
partment. of the municipal administra-
tion in fact, the man slightly lifted his
head and glanced for a moment with
deeper interest at his companion.
"I take it from your allusion that
you have experienced worse storms?
"I have been In real blizzards, Mr.
Haldane," answered Gormly quietly;
"more than once where the wind's
velocity was scarcely to be measured,
where the temperature was from
twenty to thirty below, where the sleet
needles cut like whips, and the storm
had full sweep unchecked and un-
broken by any thing However, I am
glad of the storm in this instance,
since it has enabled me to extend to
you and your party the shelter of my
roof. I have been acquainted—I have
t:ad the privilege of knowing, that is
—your daughter for some time, and I
am honored in the acquaintance of her
father and mother and your friends."
"You say you have known my daugh-
ter for some time?"
"I have had that pleasure."
"If I mistake not, she said that yon
had been interested in her settlement
work. Quixotic imaginations of an
enthusiastic girl, my dear sir; but I
"You do well," returned the other.
"And lf you will give me leave to dif-
fer with you, I hardly call it Quixotic.
I have examined into the plan thor-
oughly, and I must say It strikes me as
being altogether admirable as well as
entirely feasible. I hope and believe
it will succeed."
"Quite so," returned Haldane He
was not in the least interested in tha
"I have assisted Miss Haldane in
every way possible," returned Gormly,
who did not propose to be questioned
as to the details of his relation to the
scheme. "Of course," he went on,
your own reputation as a financier is
known to me as it is to all of New
York, and lf I may be permitted to say
so I am of the opinion that a large
part of your executive ability, not to
say genius, has descended to your
"Thank you," was the answer. "El-
eanor Is certainly a most capable
"And it must be a source of grati-
fication to you that she chooses to ex-
ercise her capability in this direction
rather than in the vain and aimless
social avocations of a large Mid in
tluentlal section of our so called best
people In the city?"
"Certnlnly. very true. But frankly,
I could wish that there was a more
equable division of time between the,
—er—high and the low, so to speak;
that Eleanor could give more of her
attention to those—duties, which after
air, my dear Mr Gormly, however we
men of the world may deprecate them,
go to make up so large a part of life,
and leave more of the detail work of
thia institution to others."

FOR THE TIME OF SORROW
Proper Way to Extend Condolences
to One's Friends Who
Are in Grief.
There are persons who never take
aotice of another s sorrow They
wait until the bereaved one is met.
Sometimes this attitude is from
fear of intrusion, again it is from
fear of not saying the right thing,
too often It is from procrastination.
Whatever the reason it Is a mistake.
There are some few who dislike out-
side sympathy in sorrow the ma.lor-
ity are hurt if It is not given They
never quite feel the same toward the
friend who they think was neglectful
of their trouble.
The visiting card with a few words j
of sympathy is sufficient, save among j
close lrlcnds. A married woman in- j
closes the card of her husband.
Never make a note of condolence j
stilted It should express you, and
not be an essay on [rief. Also be
brief. A few sincere sentences count
more than .pages of rambling plati-
It is customary to send the note to
[the member of the family you know
best, including the others in your ex-
pressions of sympathy.
It is customary now to have en-
graved forms of acknowledgment on
black-edged cards. These are sent
out In the name of the head of the
family, and are sent to all who of-
fered sympathy. They can be had in
a few days on a rush order.
There are many who think such a
jcard loo formal, and in any case in-
timate friends should have personal
■notes Flowers always require a note
in the first person from some member
of the family, or In case the note Is
written by a friend it should say:
"Mrs. Blank has asked me to thank
you for the flowers," etc.

acknowledgments are sometimes in

cards asking for prayers for the de
