iNew York that dominate the clrcla.
"Within Ita circumference there have
'bean many encroachments Savants
ara welcomed, toasted and forgotten.
Siarrlaga and Intermarriage have
brought many newcomers; million-
aires and bllllonairea have been toler-
ated, but tha oligarchy ramalna.
Tba Branda bad neither antecedents
nor matrimony aa passporu. Brand's
wife had beauty, culture, wealth; all
tha reciprocal means that society
loves, but she lacked incentive and
ambition. Her nearest approach to
tba inner circle was the Long Island
banting set She was an ardent horse-
womm and rode and drove admirably.
Bhe had been received by some very
smart people of the younger set in
tha hunts at Hempstead and Meadow
brook bnd if she had pursued these ac-
quaintances, might have found an en-
taring wedge to the sacred sphere.
But the Brands lived on Little Rock
Bay and It waa aomethlng of a hard-
ship for Mrs. Brand to shift her
mounta from her stable half way
across the island. An ambitious wom-
an would not let such a little matter
aa that atand In the way of social pre-
ferment, but she found the effort Irk-
some. She entered a few of her favor-
ites In the horse show, but more from
pride for her horses than In aoclal
quest. In fact, Mrs. Brand was not
society mad. She courted comfort
and liked her own amusements.
When Jane came upon the scene the
Situation changed. What Mra. Brand
lacked in way of aspirationa, Jane sup-
plied, and what young Mra. Reynolds
lacked In matter of means was amply
furnished by her new friend. And
Jane wanted all or nothing. She craved
not only entree to the circle, but ad-
mittance to ita most sacred confines.
She urged Mrs. Brand to seek every
possible avenue of approach to social
recognition and influenced her to at-
tempt lavish entertainments. Brand
was agreeable enough. He rather en-
Joyed the energy and seal that Mrs.
Reynolds displayed and approved of
the effect it bad on his wife. He as-
slated with a supply of unlimited cash.
Jane's only sesame to her goal was
through her friend and by the means
of ber own personal attraction. She
made the moat of the latter and the
bills from her modiste and milliner
caused Bob many a misgiving, despite
the abandon with which he made and
spent his money. He liked to see bis
wife look aa good aa the best and be
plunged harder and deeper ao that be
could gratify ber every wish without
the semblance of question. Economy
was a word that be had banished for-
ever and if their bouse had permitted

chestnut from the flame, and then he
had thrown him the shell. And for
such little gain aa was his he had suf-
fered an Incomparable loss. He waa
burned and seared forever. In the bit-
terness of these momenta Reynolds'
very soul was racked and torn' and in
his heart, at times, there was murder.
He wondered what Dick knew of
his actual deal with Brand. He longed
sometimes to look up the reporter and
bare the whole story. But confeaslon
to another would do no good now; It
would not repay the municipality he
bad robbed and it would not renew the
bond of friendahlp with the man he
had caat aalde.
When Reynolda raabed after hla
wife that night he atopped for Dick
at the little place of cheer on the cor*
ner. He almoet dragged hia friend
away, and while they waited for tbe
car be told hla Intention. He was go-
ing from Jane to Brand, he aald, and
what Brand wanted of blm he would
do. He was done with poverty and
done with principle. He wne going to
put hla hand In the grab bag and take
one draw at the game. If that waa the
way it waa played; If that waa the
only way he could decently clothe bla
wife and give her the place abe waa
entitled to. that waa the way be would
play it. He would have told Dick all
then. U be would have listened. Bet
the reporter laid a band over Me month
and atopped him.
Don't sey any more. Bob," he bad
warned. "If that la the way yoe feel;
if your mind la made up I dont want
to bear any more. I know too much
now But I can forget. Let It ge et

Only, remember this: Yeelf tell flat.

Mr. Richard Meade It waa now—not
Dick, if Rejnolda had followed tha
activitiea of the times he would have
seen his friend's signature over artlclea
of Import In an enterprising weekly.
For the reporter bad abandoned
his newspaper work and joined the
staff of a powerful publication He
was a valued man, a "muck-raker" and
crops were fine.
If a year had wrought so much to
the detriment of Bob, it had been, on
the other hand, equally beneficent to
Dick. In the clearneaa of eye, direct-
ness of manner and quiet reserve, one
read accomplishment of purpose. Dick
was a auccess. and the reward of suc-
cess waa manifest in his outward ap-
pearance, and hia environment. He
sat at a desk as big as Brand's In a
suite as finely furnished and as richly
carpeted. He looked out upon a busy
thoroughfare, one of the cross streets
in New York's colony of publishing
houses. He Inspected the passing
throng, not with a restless spirit of in-
quiry and conjecture, but with calm
observance and quiet analysis. Dick
was still a socialist, but a socialist of
deeds, not words. He had learned to
subdue his direct frontal attacks on
tbe enemy and to take more credit
unto himself and bis kind. In this re-
spect he had outdistanced his employ-
era and his writings attracted serious
attention from the men who think.
When Dick thought of Bob and his
venal surrender to Brand he did not
scoff at bis friend or rail at his tra-
ducer. He pitied Reynolds, not only
for what he had done but for what he
was—a palpable victim of the system's
way. And the very worst kind of a
victim, for at first the system had
merely stolen a part of the man's earn-
ing power and now it had stolen the
man himself. The reporter knew be-
yond a doubt that the false premises
on which Bob had founded his new
prosperity presaged only one thing—
collapse. And unlike Reynolds, he had
not simply wondered and dreamed. He
had watched. He had kept himself in-
formed about Bob, ready when the In
evitable should come, to extend the
Dick rose now, put on a well fitting
tweed coat and walked leisurely over
to tbe subway. He got off at Wall
street and made bla way to tbe officee
of a prominent broker. He gave his
card to ons of the clerks and in a
moment was shown Into ths private
sahctum of the firm's head.
"Hello, Meade," the broker greeted.
"Yon look prosperous. What can I do
for you, bualneaa?"
Tbe young writer smiled and twirled
"No," he replied, "I guess you've bad
about enough for one day. Broke pretty
good for you, didn't It?"
"In amount of trade, yea. That'a the
only way It ever breaka good for us.
Commissions are all we aak, Meade.
The broker preeaed hla lips firmly
together aa If he feared they might
part and carl Into a treacherous grin
"Tot. tut." his caller cautioned, "yon
might make It aeidom. to aay tbe
toast." But he changed hi* bantering
tone to one of eharp buaineaallke in-
"Hennlng." be aald, "time la moasy

Hennlng, a ke*n obeerver of tbla
artistic trifling, reddened ellgbtly. but
his Immoblls featuraa underwent no
change. He watched the writer reach
for his bat and nslthsr spoka As Dick
opened tbe door tbe broker offered no
commonplace good by. Hla worda
oilght have seemed somswbat Irrele-
vant, but for the little croes Dick had
scratched upon tha pad.
"Meade," be aald, without rising,
'you're wasting your time at that
magazine stuff. Why don't you coma
down here and get In with the live
ones? You could make your fortune
In tbe street beyond a doubt."
"Tbanke," answered tbe Journalist

"Walt!" called the broker.
"Walt I didn't know Reynolds waa
such a friend of yours. Maybe be isn't
flat. Maybe we can fix him up a bit.'
"I'm afraid not." Dick answered.
"From what I knew and from what I'm
learned now, I fear he's past fixing.'
He went out Into the crowd. It wi
four o'clock. Wall and Broad etreeta
were filled with a hurrying, scurrying
Dick, in no mood for haste, waa
shoved and Jostled, as he hugged the
sides of buildings In his more leisurely
progress toward the subway. When hs
saw the mobs pouring down into tha
tube at Wall and at Dey streets bs
wormed his way northward along
Broadway till he found a taxi and head-
ed for the Thirty-fourth street ferry.
The boat made its slip at Long
Island City and he caught a train for
Bayeide where the Reynolds lived.
Where they lived, but would live no
more. Poor Bob! he thought, and poor
Jane! For his heart went out to Jane
as much as to his friend. She waa but
a girl, blinded by the glamor with
which tbe trap had been baited and
Bob waxa man wbo had stepped bold-
ly Into It.
The end had come quicker than Dick
thought it would. It was but a matter
of time, he knew, but he would have
given Bob more than a year.
He learned that tbe Reynolds' house
was some thirty minutes walk from
the station. He could find no means
of conveyance, so he set out on foot

A Century Ago.
One hundred years ago the Ameri-

command of Capt. Guy R. Champlln,
arrived at New York after a cruise
of four months, In the course of which
she had captured 11 British vessels.
Only the day previous to her arrival
In New York, while off Sandy Hook,
she bad captured the sloop Henrietta,
laden with stores for tbe British fleet
In Chesapeake bay. The General Arm-

the second war with Great Britain.
She was armed with nlns large guns

in her career, while crutalng off the
coast of South America, she battled
for more then an hour with a British
