There wns silence for a few moment
during which tho young woman seemed
to bs adding common und full-stops to
tho manuscript on her knee. Went-
worth cleared his throat two or three
times but his lips were so dry that he
could hardly speak. At last he said:
"Miss Hrewster how can I induce you
not to send that from Quecnstowu to
Tho young woman looked tip at. him
with n pleasant bright smile.
"Induce met Why you couldn't do
It it couldn't lie done. This will be
one of the greatest triumphs I have ecr
nehicved. Think of Hive-s failing in It
nnd not accomplishing it!"
"Yes I have thought of that" re-
plied the young man despondently.
"Now perhaps you don't know that tho
full report wan mnilcd from Ottawa to
our house in London nnd the moment
we get to Qnecnstown 1 will telegraph
my iwrtncrs to put the report In the
hands of the directors?"
"Oh I know all about thnt" replied
Miss Hrewster; "Rhcrs told me. lie
rcod tho letter that was Inclosed with
the documents he. took from your

culntlons about this voyage?"

aiorulng. That's what I mean Mr. Went-
worth by calculating the voyage."
Wentworth Raid no more. He stag-
gered to his feet and made his way ns
best lie could to the stateroom groping
like a blind man. There he sat down
with his head in his hands and there
his friend Kenyan found him.
John Kenyan descried by his only
friend on board made no complaint
nor did be. endcnor to make up for his
loss by finding new acquaintances. He
was not a man who formed friendships
readily but fate was kind to him and
hnd already set about adjusting the
balance of profit and loss; moreover
fate who likes to do tilings in a fitting
mnnner used the deserter as an in-
strument. Wcntworth's conscience seemed to
be troubling him because ho left his
old friend so much nlone going east
whereas they hnd been constnntly
together on the trip westward; there-
fore lie considered it his duty to make
an apology to ICenyon every morning
before placing himself for the rest of Hie
day under the fascinating influence of
"There. Is nothing you wish to talk
witli me about is there Kenyon?"
asked Wentworth on one of these occa-
sions looking down nt his friend sent-
(d in his deck chair.
"Then you don't mind "
"Not in the least" interrupted Ken-
yon with a smile.
"I want you to do some energetic
thinking about our mine you know
so thnt you will be rendy to open the
cnmpalgn when we reach Loudon.
Thinking wldch Is worth anything is
best done in solitude Kcnjou so 1 will
not bother you for nn hour or two."
Again Kenyon smiled but made no
reply uud Wentworth departed.
The elderly gentleman whose chair
v.as next to Kenyon's looked round nt
the young man when ills fxiend men-
tioned the mine and his name.
"Arc you Mr. Kenyon the mining ex-
pert?" ho asked when Wentworth
"I am a mining engineer" answered
Kenyon with some surprise.
"Did you go out to Canada to report
on mines there for tho London syndi-
cate?" "Why do you nsk?" said Kenyon all
liis uathc caution being aroused in a
moment on hearing the astonishing
Tho elderly gentleman laughed. "He-
eauso I nm In a measure responsible
for you" he said. "I am Mr. Long-
wirth John Lougworth of the city
uud a member of tho London syndi-
cate. Two names were proposed
Scottou's nnd yours. I otcd for you;
pot that I knew anything about you
but some of tho others seemed ery
anxious that Scotton should go bo I
thought it best to ote for you. There-
fore you see ns I said liefore I nm
partly responsible for jour being
"I hope you will not bo dissatisfied
with tho result Mr. Longwortli."
"I hope not myself. I inn see thnt
you nro a cautious man mid those who
recommended you vouched for jour
capabilities so with cnutlon nnd ca-
pacity a man should succeed. I intended
to isit tho properties but I wns de-
tained so long in tho west that I did
not have time to go notth. How did
you find the mines?"
"Since you complimented me on mj-
caution Mr. Lougworth I should be
sorrj to forfeit your good opinion bj-
nnsw crlng j-our quest ions."
"Quite right; quite right" said tlio
clderlj' gentleman laughing again.
"That's ono for yon and n verj- good
one too. I must tell that to mj- daugh-
ter; and hero she comes. Ed'th iny
dear this is Mr. Kenyon who went
out to examine our mines. Curious
isn't it that wc should hae been talk
ing about thcin tills very morning?
Mr. Kenyon I call my daughter mj
confidential man of busluci; she has
Injen all ocr the. world with inc. I
nccr make anj investments without
consulting her so I urn you that she
will usk you more Insidious questions
about thu mines than 1 shall."
John Kcnyou had risen to his feet
to greet the girl and to ofTcr her his
"No thank yon" she Kohl. "I want
to walk. I inerclj' came to see if my
fntlier was all right. I was verj' much
disapx)lnted Unit we did not go to
Canada this time as I wished to
see something of the snow-shoeing nnd
tolioggnnlng there. I suppose there
wns no tobogganing where you were?"
"Oh yew" said Kenyon; "even out
among tlio mines they had a tobog-
gan slide on which one trip satisfied
me; and on secrnl journeys I hnd to
wvar snow-shoes inj-sclf."
"How interesting" said the girl.
And the next thing John knew he was
walking the deck with her relating bis
experiences. This walk was the first
of iniiiij' nnd from thnt time forwnrd
Kenyon did not miss his friend WcnU
Edith Lougworth cun hnrdby lx- called
a typical representative of the Eng-
lish girl. She hud un English girl's
education but she had not the train-
ing of the average English girl. She
had lost her mother enrlj' in life which
makes a great difference in a girl's
training however wealthy her father
may be; and Edith's father wus
wcalthj- there was no doubt of that.
Ask any city man nboutthestandingof
John Lougworth and you will learn
that the "house" is well thought of.
People said he was luckj- but John
Longworth asserted that there was no
such thing ns luck In business in
which statement lie wns very likely
not correct. He hnd large investments
in almost every quarter of the globe.
When lie went into a tiling lie went
into it thoroughly. People talk of the
inndvisubillty of putting all one's eggs
into one basket but John Lougworth
was a believer iu doing that very thing
nnd in watching the basket. Nottliat
ho hnd all his eggs iu one basket or in
even one kind of a basket but when
John Lougworth wns satisfied with tho
particular ".nrictj' of basket presented
to him lie put a large number of eggs
in it. When anything wns offered for
investment whether it wns a mine n
brewery or a railway John Longworth
took nn expert's opinion upon it nnd
then the chnnccs were thnt lie would
disregard the advice given. He wns in
the habit of going personallj' to sec
what had been offered to him. If the
enterprise were big enough he thought
little of taking a voj"age to the other
side of the world for the solo purpose
of looking the Investment over.
When Edith Longworth was pro-
nounced finished ns far us education
was concerned she became more nnd
more the companion of her fntlier.
Sho wcut with him on his long jour-
neys nnd so had been several times
to America once to the cape and one
loug voyage with Australia as the ob-
jective point had taken her complete-
ly around tho world. She inherited
much of her father's shrewdness nnd
there is no doubt that if Misa Long-
worth had been cast upon her own re-
sources she would have become an ex-
cellent woman of business. She knew
exactly the extent of her father's in-
.cstments nnd she was his confidante
iu a way thnt few women are with
their molo relatives. The old man had
great fuith In Edith's opinion al-
though he rarely acknowledged it. Hav-
ing been together so much on such long
.oynges they naturally became in n
vuj boon companions. Thus Edith's
education was very unlike that of the
ordinary English girl; a training which
caused her to develop into a different
kind of a woman than she would have
been If her mother had lived.
The friendship between Edith Long-
worth nnd John Kenyon ripened so rap-
idly that on the day Wentworth had liis
last disquieting inteiview with Jennie
Urcwstcr thej- also were discussing
mining properties but in somewhutdif-
ferent fashion. Kenj-on confided to the
girl that his own hopes and fears were
wrapped up in n mine.
After completing their work for the
London sj'ndicate the j'oung men had
transacted 11 little business on their
own account. Thej' visited together
11 mica mine which wns harclj' paj--ing
expenses and which the owners
were anxious to sell. The mine was
owned by tlio Austrian Mining com-
pany whose ngent Von Ilrcnt had met
Kcnj'on in Ottawa. Kcnyon's cducnted
eye hnd told him that the white
mineral t hoy were placing on the dump
nt the mouth of the mine wns more
nlunble than the mica for which they
weremining. Kenj'on was scrupulously-
honestu quality somewhat ut n dis-
count in the mining business nnd it
seemed to him linrdlj' fnir that hu
should take advantage of the ignorance
of Von Ilrcnt regarding the mineral on
the dump. Wentworth had some
trouble In overcoming his friend's scru-
ples. He Insisted that knowledge al-waj-s
had to be paid for in law medi-
cine or ininernlogj" nnd therefore that
thej- were perfectly justified in profit-
ing bj their superior wisdom. So it
came about that the j-oung men took to
England with them a threo months'
option on tlio mine which means that
for three months thej were to haws tho
pri liege of buying the property at a
certain figure named in the legal docu-
ment which was called iu the mining
language the "option."
"Well I nm sure" said Miss Long-
worth when Kenyon had given her all
tho details "if j-ou are confident that
tho mine is a good one you could see
no one who would help j-ou more in thnt
wnj- thnn mj' father. He has been look-
ing nt a brewcrj" business in which he
thought of investing and with which
he has concluded to hac nothing to do
so lie will be anxious to find something
relh'ble to take its pluce. How much
would be required for the purchase of
the mjue you mention?"
"I thought of asking 50000 for It"
said Kcnyou (lushing us he thought of
his tcmeritj' in doubling the price of
tlio mine nnd ndding 10000 to it.
However Wentworth und he had esti-
mated tho probnblo value of the mine
nnd hud concluded that belling it utthat
price which would give them 30000
to divide between them they were sell-
ing a mine which was really worth very
much more and that would soon paj-
tremendous dividends on the 50000.
Ho expected the young woman would
seem rather impressed bj- tho amount.
Ho was therefore vcrj' much surprised
when she said:
"Fifty thousand pounds! Is thnt nil?
Then I nm afraid my father would have
nothing to do with it. He deals only
with large businesses nnd u company
with a cnpltnl of but 50000 I am sun?
he would not look nt."
"You speak of i 50000" said Kenyon
"ns though it were a trifle. To me it
seems nn immense fortune."
"Vou arc not wealthy then V" mid the
girl with apparent Interest.
"No" replied the joung man; "far
"I will speuk to mj- fntlier If you like
hut I doubt if it would do much good.
Perhaps William might take it up. You
have not met mj' cousin j-ct I think?"
"No. Is he the j'oung man who sits
next to you at the table?"
"Yes. Except when there he spends
most of his time in the smoking-room
I hclictc. He Is in father's olllco in
tlie cltj and we nre both very anx-
ious that he shall succeed in business.
Thnt is wiij- father took liiin with us to
America. He wants to interest him
and it seems almost impossible to in-
terest William in anything. He doesn't
like America; I think it's tho beer."
"I didn't like their beer myself" ad-
"Well I shall arrange n meeting be-
tween you and William and then you
can talk It over. I know father would
be pleased if lie became Interested In
forming a mining companj' or In any-
thing in fact"
After Edith Longworth left him Ken-
yon waited where lie was for some time
hoping Wentworth would come nloug
so that he might tell him of their possi-
ble new partner; but the young man did
not nppeur. At lost Kenj'on rose and
began to search for him. He passed
along the deck but found no trace of
his friend. He looked for a moment
into tlie smoking-room but Wentworth
was not there. He went downstairs to
the saloon but hU search below was
equally fruitless. Coming up 011 deck
again lie saw Miss Hrewster sitting
nlone rending 11 pnper-covered novel.
"Iliac j'ou seen mj' friend Went-
worth?" he asked the j'oung womau.
She laid thu book open-faced upo:'
her hip and looked quickly up at Ken-
j'on before answering:
"I saw him not erj" long ago but
I don't know where lie is now. Per-
haps you will find him in liis state-
room; in fact I think it more than like-
ly he is there." With thnt Miss Hrew-
ster resumed her reading.
Kenyon descended io the state-room
nnd opened the door. Wentworth sat
upon the plusli-covercd sofa with his
head in his hands. At the opening
of the door lie started nnd looked for
n moment at his friend apparently not
seeing him. Ills face was so graj' and
ghastly that Kenyon placed his hand
against the wall for support as hu
"My God I George" he cried. "Wliat'a
the matter with j'ou? What has hap-
pened? Tell me."
Wentworth gazed in front of him
with glassj' eyes for n moment but did
"Tell mn what has happeuctl repeated Johx
not answer. Then his head dropped
again in his hands and lie groaned
"Toil me what lias happened" re-
peated John Kcnj'on.
Wentworth looked up at him. "Every-
thing lias happened" lie answered.
" hat do j'ou mean George? Arc
you ill? What in the matter with j'ou?"
"I nm worse than ill John; a great
deal worso than ill. 1 wish I were ill."
"That wouldn't help things whatever
in wrong. Come wuke up. Tell me
what the trouble is."
"John 1 11m a fool nn ass a gibber-
"Admitting that what then?'"
"I trusted a woman imbecile that i
nm; nnd now now I'm what you see
"Hns has Miss Hrewster unj'thing to
do with it?" nskad Kcnj'on suspi-
"She has everything to do with it."
"Has slie rejected you. George?"
"What! thnt girl? Oh you're the
idiot now.' Do j-ou think 1 would nsk
"I cannot be blamed for jumping nt
conclusions. You must remember 'thnt
girl' ns you cull her has had most of
your company during tills voj'ngc; nnd
most of j'our good ords when j'ou w ere
mnot with her. Whnt is the matter?
Whnt has she to do w 1th j'our trouble?"
Wentworth paced up nnd down the
narrow limits of the state-room as if
he were caged. lie smote his hand
against his thigh while Kenyon looked
nt him In woudcr.
"I don't know how I can tell j'ou
John" he said. "I must of course; but
I don't know bow 1 can."
"Come on deck with me."
"Come out I say into tlio fresh air
It is stulTj' here nnd besides there is

stateroom than on deck. Come nloug

HORSES OF ARABIA.

The Hnnnnrdt and Nephaartn Arabs
are famous horschrccders and take-
great pride in their stud. These horses
are. I think the best "Arabs" I have
seen; and far from being the gnzelic-
llke creatine usually depicted they

mnls of from 15 to 15' hands high. I

Is on earnest of the siccd they undoub;-
edly possess. Parties from these triben
are contstnntly roaming the deserts of
Syria and Mesopotamia in search of
good brood marcs; nnd I have heard of
tus irudi ns 1000 guineas being paid
for one. nnd n good brood mare Is never
parted with or ridden.
I remember seeing a bunch of Nc-
phaarta horses brought in for the in-
spection of an emissary of thekhedhe
who wished to purchase a pair for Ids
highness. There were some 20 or 25 of
the most beautiful colts possible with
the exception of ono rather wcedj-
looking beast. As soon ns Sheik Man-
oour saw it he shouted: "Xnke itowaj-
and giro it to the first man you meet.
I will not own that as a Nephaartn
horse!" The khedlvc's ngent eventual-
ly selected two for which I saw him
pay 500 pounds Egyptian.
Entire Arab horse arc always rather
difficult to ride at first though after a
few days when hors and rider have-
become reconciled they nre docile
enough and casllj' trained. Each man
has virtually to break his horse to his
own hand and should another mount nn
apparently quiet beast he would have
to do the work all oe again. It seem
to be a tacit understanding between
horse and rider that their Joint career
begins with a struggle for the mastery.
To u visitor like myself whose mounts
must constantly be changing the pros-
pect is sufficiently alnrming. One's
early duys in an Arab camp are fre
qucntly days of pain and tribulation ns

another or disastrous results follow.
The horses are always ready for a fight
and deceitfully appear to be on their
best behavior immediately before an
outbreak. I was riding one day with
a small party of Samana Arabs when
two men carelessly approached too
close. I called out to them to sheer oft
a little but before they could respond
a general melee was in progress and

trated upon the race and the rne may
