She had Just crime across hoc fath-
er's missing letters which had Rot
mixed up evidently without Ryder's
knowledge In the mass of papers ho
lind handed her. Prepared ns she was
to find the letters somewhere In the
house &ho never dreamed that fr.te
would put them so easily and so quick-
ly Into her hands; the suddenness of
thottf appearance and the sight of her
father's familiar signature affected her
almost like a shock. Now she had
them she must not let them go again;
yet how could she keep them uuoli-
Eerved? Could slio conceal them?
"Would he miss them? She tried to slip
thun In her bosom while Ilyder was
busy nt the phone hut he suddenly
glanced In her direction and canght her
eye. Bho still held the letlers In her
hund which shook from nervousness
but he noticed nothing and went on
speaking through the phone:
"Hello Jefferson boy! You want to

I've got n lady here. Going a way?
Nonsense! Determined eh? Well I

Come up in about five minutos nud I'll

Shirley was all unstrung trying to

covery had caused her and In n
strangely altered voice the' result of

His eye suddenly rested on the letters
sho wns holding. He stopped short
and reaching forward he tried to snatch
them from her.
"What have you got there?" he ex-
llo took the letters and sho made no
resistance. It would bo folly to force
the Issue now she thought. Another
opportunity would present Itself. Hy-
der locked tho letters up very carefully
iu the drawer on the lofthand sldo of
Ids desk muttering to himself rather
thou speaking to Shirley:
"How ns earth did they get nmong
my other papeis?"
"From Judge ltossmore wero they
not?" said Shirley boldly.
"How did you know It was Judge
ltossmore?" demanded Hydor susph
clously. "I didn't know that his nomo
had been mentioned."
"I saw his slgnntnro." she sold sim-
ply. Then sho added "He's the father
of tho girl you don't like. Isn't ho?"
"Yes. he's the"
A cloud enmo over the Ilnnnclcr's

"How jou must hate him!" said Shir-
ley Mho observed tho change.
"Xot nt nil" replied Itydor recover-
ing his self possession and sunvity of
manner. "I dUngrec with his polities
and his methods but I know very llt-
tlo about him except that ho is about
to bo removed from olllce."
"About to lie?" echoed Shirley. "So
tils fate is decided even before ho is
tried?" Tho girl laughed bitterly.
"Yes" sho went on "some of tho news-
papers nro beginning to think vi Is In-
nocent of the things of which lie Is ac-
cused" "Do they?" said Itydor Indifferently.
"ies" she persisted "most piioplo
are on his side."
She planted her elbows on tho desk
iu front of hur and looking him square-
ly In the face she asked him point
"Whose side are you on really and
Ilyder winced. What right had this
woman n stranger both to Judge ltoss-
more and hlmsolf to come here and
catechise him? Ho restrained bis im-
patience with dlflleulty as ho replied:
"Whose side am I on? Oh I don't
know that I am on nnv side. I don't
know that I give It much diought. 1"
"Do .on think this man deserves to
be punished?" she demanded.
She had resumed her seat nt tho desk
and partly regained hor solf possession.
"Why do you ask? What Is your In-
terest In this matter?"
"I don't know" she replied ovaslvo-
Jy. "Ills case intorestH me that's nil.
It's rather romantic. Your son Iovoh

voice trembled with emotion as sho
continued: "I have heard from ono

"Do you menu to say thnt If you had

"Not even it I had the absolute proof

"Have you absolute proof In that

''1 repeat thnt even If I had I could

He smiled ngalu at hor us If lie had
recovoted his good humor after their

"You said that ovm If you had tho

Sho slopped and burst Into hysterical
laughter. "Oh I think you're having

'Just to see bow far you can lead me.
I daresay Judfto ltossmore deserves nil

It" She rose and w.slked to tho other
side of tho room to conceal her emo-
tion. Hyder watched her curiously.
"My dear young lady how you tako
this matter to heart!"
"Please forgive mo" laughed Shir-
ley anil averting her face to conceal
the fact that her eyes wero filled with
tears. "It's my artistic temperament
I suppose. It's always getting mo Into
trouble. It appenled.so strongly to nly
sympathies this story oiThopeless love
between two young people with the
father of tho girl hounded by corrupt
pollllclans and unscrupulous financiers.
It wns too much for me. Ah nh I
forgot where I was!"
She loaned against n chair sick and
faint from nervousness hor whole body
trembling. At that moment there was
n knock at tho 'Ibrnry door and Jef-
ferson Ilyder appeared. Not seeing

Shirley was silent or n moment.
She looked first at Hjder and then at
his son nud from them her glance
went to the little drawer on the left
hand side of the desk. Then she said
"As you think best Mr. Hyder. I am
quite willing to do the work here."
Hyder senior cavorted her to tho top
of tho landing and watched her us she
passed down the grand staircase ush-
ered by the gorgeously uniformed jun-
kies to the front door and the street.

morning's mail brought a letter from

opportunity prnellcnily insured suc-

The other letter wns to Stott. She told
him all nbout the Interview with Hy

tuio of the woik offered to her said
that her address for the next few
weeks would bo In enro of John Uur-

sho had dared to hope. Kvcrythlng
seemed to favor tholr plan. Her flrst
step of course -while In tho Hydor

So aftor settling accounts with her
landlady and packing up her few be-
longings Shirley lost no time lu trans-
ferring herself to tho more luxurious
quarters provided for her In the $10
000000 mnnslon uptown.
At tho Hydor house sho was received
cordlnlly and Willi every mark of con-

down to tho main hull to greet her
when sho nrrlvod and escorted her to
the suit of rooms comprising a small

Although "Tho American Octopus"

went on Mrs. Hyder becoming confi-

things and made herself at home.
"Girls of your age are so companiona-

your parents llvo In New York?"
Shirley's fnce Hushed and she stoop-
ed over her trunk to hide Iwr embar-
rassment. "No not nt present" she answered
evasively. "My mother and father are
in the country."
She was afraid thnt more question
of n icrsoiisl nature would follow hut
apporently Mrs. Ilyder was riot In an

and tho more she tallied with her the
less surprised she was thnt she wns
the author of n mufch discussed book.
Finally thinking that Shirley might
prefer to be alone sho rose to go. bid-
ding her make herself thoroughly at
homo and to ling for anything she
might wish. A maid )md been assign-
ed to look exclusively after her wonts
and she could hnvo hor meals served lu
her room or else huvVthem with the
family as she liked Hut Shirley not
caring to encounter fr. Hyder's cold
searching stare more ofteu thnu neces-
sary said she would prefer to tako her
heft to hersolf Shlrfoy settled down
to work iu onniost. Mr. Hydor had
Rent to her room all the material for
the biography and soon she was com-
pletely absorbed lu tho task of sorting
und arranging letters Huiklng extracts
from records compiling data oic lay-
ing the foundations fr the Important
bonk she was to write. She wondered
what they would call It nud she smiled
as a peculiarly appropriate title Hash-
ed through her mind- 'The History of
a Crime." Yet she thought they could
hardly infringe on Victor Hugo. Per
haps the best title whs the simplest
"Tlie History of the Kmplre Trading
Company. " Kverv one would under-
stand that It told the story of John
Hurkett Hyder's remarkable career
from his eariiuitt beginnings to the
present time. She worked feverishly
a" that evening getting the material
Into shape and the following day
found her early at her desk. No one
disturbed her and she wrote steadily
on until noon Mrs. Hvder only once
putting her head In the door to wish
her good niornUig.
After luncheon Shirley decided that
tne weather was too glorious to remain
Indoors. Her health must not be jeop-
ardised even to advance tho Interests
of the Colossus so she put ou her hnt
and left the house to go for n walk.
Tho air smelted sweet to her after ho-
lug confined so long Indoors and sho
walked with a more elnstte and buoy-
tint step than sho had hi bur return
home. Turning down Fifth nrwipo
sho entered the park .it Sovnjjty-sepond
stteet fallowing the p-ithU'sv until sho
came to the bend lu the driveway op-
posite the Casino. Tl park was al-
most desertod at that liour and there
was a delightful sense of xahtude and
a sweet scant of new mown hay from
the freshly cut lawn She found an
empty bench well blinded by an over-
spreading tree and wit down grate-
ful for the lvst and quiet.
She wondered what Jefferson thought
of hvr action iu coining to his father's
house practically in disguise and un-
der an niMumed niiuu She must se
him at once for lu him lay her hope of
obtaining posseimU.i -f the letters.
Certainly she felt no delicacy or com-
punction in askleg .! M'ersou to do her
this t err lee. The h tiers belonged to
her father and they v '-re lining wrong-
