"Well, what success?"
Robert I'enwell, lawyer, had asked
the question. Norman Brodie, his
client, absent for a month on a futile
quest, made answer, wearied and de-
"You started out to find four, pre-
sumably living relatives," said Pen-
well. "lieud, themselves wealthy, or too
proud to accept your liberality
"All dead except otie. poor souls!"
answered Brodie, gloomily. "I wish
the inspiration to help them had coine
] earlier In tuy life. Even the fourth
may not be living. He is a rugged
old bachelor, who went West and has
not been heard of since. However,
I understand that a man named Itufus
Paxton, living at Brookvllle, was his
, particular friend, and I have been re-
; ferred to him for later information."
"1 hope this ends your quixotic im-
pulse of finding some remote kin to
scutter your money among," said I'en-
well. "You are young, have an Income
almost royal and should just be begin-
ning to enjoy life."
"This Is to me a lonely world," sigh-
ed Brodie gloomily. "1 have tried pub-
lic charity and It has been a failure.
1 have thought to find loyal, loving
friends, and the last one of thetu has
cultivated me simply for my money.
My dream was to find the few rela-
tives that were left and endow them
with a part of my wealth, hoping the
ties of blood would win their unselfish
regard. My plan lias met with dis-
appointment, but I shall continue it in
the hope that my apparently last sur-
viving relative is alive. I shall try
this Kufus I'axton as a last forlorn
hope," and Brodie went his way. He
was by no means assured that he
would find Rufus I'axton when he
reached Brookvllle. His Informant had
stated that it was some time since he
had heard of I'axton, who was old,
poor and in distressed circumstances
generally. His had been the story
about Paxtou's wife being broken
down and his sou an Invalid. To his
surprise, when Brodie reached the
home of the l'axtons, he found himself
at the gate of the prettiest home in
the place. Upon its porch was a white-
haired old man, who nodded with smil-
ing expectancy as Brodie asked 1£ he
was Mr. Rufus Paxton. Near to him,
sewing, was a lovely-fuced old lady,
and before a little table covered with
books was a young man whose pallor
and delicate frame suggested the con-
firmed invalid. Brodie stated his mis-
sion. The brow of the old man
Arthur Wayne?" lie repeated. "He
died over a year ago."
Brodie sighed drearily. Here was
the end of his quest, fie was a lonely
man, indeed! As he viewed the three
happy-faced, peaceful-eyed persons be-
fore him he envied them, their rare

Brodie explained his mission. "You
are a good man to think of trying to
do good to others," lie commented sin-
cerely. "I know something of what
It is to be at the verge of the deepest
despair. There comes the blessed an-
gel of mercy who brought to us the
sunlight of hope and joy!"
As he spoke the old man came to his
feet with glowing eyes, and the face of
his wife was irradiated with the ten-
derness of a great love. Both em-
braced and kissed a lovely, graceful
girl who came up the steps and whom
the Invalid soon greeted with brother-
"This is Viola Brierly, sir," Intro-
duced Mr. Paxton, and there was pride
and pleasure in his tones. She seemed
to infuse the entire household with
a new vitality. Even Brodie felt the
magic of her power, and the magnetic
eyes of the young girl beamed upon
him as briefly Mr. Paxton told of his
search for his relatives.
They Invited him to tea and after-
ward Paxton told him something of

to regard like a real daughter of their

recited the old man. "After years of
patient struggle and hard work he in-
herited some twenty thousand dollars
unexpectedly. It came too late; he
was dying. He directed Viola to come
to us, to provide for us and make our
last days happy. Oh, sir I She has
placed us In comfort where there was
deprivation and suffering. More than
that, she is the practical head of every
charitable movement in the district.
She has already freely devoted most
of her fortune to that work and only
wishes she had more to uplift the
That was only the first visit of Nor-
man Brodie to what attracted him as
the loveliest home he had ever entered.
B charmed him to study the character
of the gentle, sympathetic girl who
had sacrificed all she possessed to
make others happy. Then Brodie real-
ized that his life's mission was directly
at hand. The little plans of Viola be
came large plans as he encouraged
and amplified them. Within a month
he was immersed in n new life thut
