Carrington loved Kate Cavenaugh,
daughter of Multl-Milllonalre Henry Cav-
enaugii. The latter liked Carrington, but
refused him as a son-in-law. Young Car-
rington, a lawyer, held evidence of crim-
inal financial operations, of which Gave-
iiang.li was guilty. It was Carrington's
duty to prosecute the rich man, but he
decided to lay the whole matter before
Kate. lie did so the next day. The young
woman decided that to drop the case

Harrington a position at $17,000 a year,
lit refused it. He hid bis evidence In the
Cavenaugh safe, after being introduced
to the millionaire's father.
"We seldom use this," said the girl,
reading the vague unspoken question
in his eyes. "The Jewel safe is up-
stairs in my room."
"It doesn't matter in the least," he
replied, smiling, "so long as I may
safely rid myself of these obnoxious
papers. And if you do not mind, I'll
leave them there till Monday morning.
I've thought it all out, Kate. A man's
■only human, after all. I could never
prosecute the case myself; I'd be
thinking of you and the bread 1 have
eaten. I'll turn the matter over to
Ohalloner, and let him do as he thinks
best. Of course, I shall be called as a
•witness when the case comes up in
court, if it ever does."
She did not reply, but shut the door
of the safe and rose from her knees.
The south side of the dining room
■was made up of long colonial windows
that opened directly upon the lawn.
They were more like doors than win-
dows. She locked each one carefully
and drew the curtain.
"Norah is probably growing im-
patient for us," she said.
With an Indescribable Impulse he
suddenly drew her into his arms and
kissed her. It might be the last he
■could ever claim.
"John!" she murmured, gently dis-

extraordinary had happened.
"They—It Is not there!"
Norah sat down and hid her face on
Carrington rushed over to the safe,
stooped and made a hasty examina-
tion. It had been opened by some one
who knew the combination! He
stood up, a cold chili wrinkling his
spine. Ho saw it all distinctly. Cave-
naugh knew. He had known all along.
Cavenaugh had overheard him speak
to Kate and had opened the safe after
their departure for the club. It was
all very cleverly done. He knew that
Kate was utterly blameless. Then
it dawned upon him that they ap-
peared as though they accepted the
catastrophe as not wholly unexpected!
To what did this labyrinth lead?
A rattle of the curtain rings wheeled
them about. They beheld Cavenaugh
himself standing in the doorway.
"What's the trouble?" he asked, eye-
ing Carrington suspiciously.
Carrington answered him icily. "I
left some legal documents of great
value in this safe; they are no longer

stared at Kate, then at Norah. If

Ho took out the expected sugar loaves
and extended them on both palms.
The pair lipped his linnd and crunched
the sweets with evident relish.
"How are they to-day, James?"
"Fit for 20 miles, straight away or
'cross lots, sir. Your mount is feeling
his oats this morning; he hasn't been
out for a run since Thursday, sir. I've
put the curb on him In case he takes
it into his head to cut up shines.
Hero comes Miss Kate, sir."
Carrington's pulse rose. Kate was
approaching them. Sho was pale but
serene. She smiled a good morning,
which took in the gentleman and the
"I hope I haven't kept you waitlflg."
"Not a moment; I only Just got
down myself," said Carrington.
She mounted without assistance
and adjusted her skirts. The filly be-
gan to waltz, impatient to be off.
"To the beach?" Carrington asked,
swinging into his saddle.
She nodded and they started off
toward the highway at a smart trot.
Once there, the animals broke into
an easy canter, which they maintained
for a mile or more. Then Kate drew
down to a walk.
"What a day!" said he, waving his
hand toward the sea lino.
There was color a-plenty on her
cheeks now, and her eyes shone like

Land Sale Opens in Four Months.
The cloek in the hall chimed the
quarter hour after 11. Cavenaugh was
in his den. His desk was littered with
sheets of paper, upon which were
formidable columns of figures and dol-
lar signs. Ho sat back in liis chair
and listened. He thought ho heard a
door or window close; he wasn't cer-
tain. It was probably one of the serv-
ants. He bit off the end of a fresh
■cigar and resumed his work. Let the
young people play golf, if they wanted
to, and danco and frivol away the pre-
cious hours; they would never know
the joy of seeing one become two, two
become four, and so on, till the add-
ing grew into tho ransoms of many
Icings. Ay, this was to live. Oh, the
beautiful numerals! Brigade after
brigade, corps after corps, they
inarched at a sign from him; an army
■greater than that of kings. To sit in

tions! Yes, Kate should have a duke
and Norah a prince; ho would show
them all some day. Recollecting Car-
rington, ho frowned. Did tho follow
know anything, that he felt the power
to refuse an offer such as he had
made at the dinner table? Bah! It
would be like crushing some insect.
He determined that this should be
Carrington's last visit. His pen moved
once more, and presently he became
lost in his dreams of calculation.
But Cavenaugh's ears had not de-
ceived him, however, for he had heard
the sound of a closing window. A
•window had been closed, but none of
the servants kid been at hand.
At precisely 11 a man came swiftly
but cautiously across the lawn. When
lie readied the long windows of the
dining room he paused, but not irreso-
lutely. There was a sharp rasping j
sound, followed by the uncertain glare j

"Done! I'll give you to the sixth

Away they went, the horses every bit
as eager as their riders. With their
ears laid back, their nostrils wide,
their feet drumming, they thundered
down the road. Carrington gained,
but slowly, and he had to hold his
right arm as a shield for his eyes, as
the filly's heels threw back a steady
rain of sand and gravel. Faster and
faster; a milk wagon veered out just
in lime; foolish chickens scampered
to the wrong side of the road, and the
stray pigs in the orchards squealed
and bolted inland. It was all very
fine. And when they struck deep

The value of electricity for heating
purposes, says the Scientific Amorl
can, is illustrated in a new electric
glue pot, which lias recently been
placed on the market. The economy
of the device lies in the fact that the
maximum amount of heat may be ap-
plied instantly when needed, while
the glue may be kept warm at ali
times by a reduced flow of current
through the heating coils. Tho glue
