When we recollect that one talent
represented either $1,000 or $2,000,
we see that It was something not to
be desplBed. Hut this man, instead
of being thankful that he was not
burdened with more than he could
take caro of, had not energy enough
to do anything with hlB own talent. “Hid

were almost unknown, this was often

surance that each Is to have abun-

each day is a day of reckoning. Hut
beyond this, Scripture seems to teach
a day of public reckoning when all
will see that God has dealt wisely, lov-
ingly, justly, with each.

From the little table at hi* elbow
he picked up the card that had an-
nounced him and drew out his pencil.
"You said my word was as good as
another man's money. Now I'm going
to write on this card just what you

He left her studying the card with a
curious little flash of surprise.
THE AMATEUR NAPOLEON OF WALL
At the beginning of April, the sit-
uation in the three stocks Perclval had
bought so heavily grew undeniably
tense. Consolidated Copper went from
109 to 103 in a week. But Percival's
enthusiasm suffered little abatement
Very well. Now you do as I tel! you. I from the drop.
and you can clean up a big lot inside
of the next two months. If you do as
I tell you, mbd. no matter what you
hear, and if gm don’t talk.”
Mrs. XVybft meditated.
"Mr. Binw, I’m—it’s natural that
I’m a little uneasy. Why should you
want to sea! me do well, after our lit-
tle affair? NW. out with It! What are
you trying tb do with me? What do
you expect tie to do for you? Get
down to case* yourself. Mr. Bines!”
"I will, ma'am, in a few words. My
granddaughter, you may have heard,
is engaged to an Englishman. He’s
next thing to broke, but he's got a title
coming. Naturally he’s looking fur
money. Naturally he don’t care fur

uated with him. Now then, if he had a
chance at some one with more money
than she's got, why, naturally, he'd
Jump at it."
"Aren't you a little bit wild?”
Not a little bit. He saw you at

sharks and Shepler will be wondering

Tho published rumors regarding Con-
solidated begau to coutllct very sharp-
ly. Perclval heard them all hungrily,
disregarding those that did not con-
firm hlo own opinions. Ho called them
Irresponsible newspaper gossip, or be-
hoved them to be Inspired by the
clique for Its own ends.
He studied the history of copper
until he knew all Its ups and downs
since the great electrical development
began in 1887. When Pouts, the bro-
ker he traded most heavily with, sug-
gested that tho Consolidated company
was skating on thin Ice, that It m ght,
Indeed, be going through the same ex-
perience that shattered the famous
Secretan corner a dozen years before,
Perclval poiuted out unerringly the
vital differences in the circumstances.
The Consolidated had reduced the pro-
duction ot Its controlled mlneB, and
the prico was bofind to be maintained.
When hls adviser suggested that the
companies not In tho combine might
cut the price, he brought up th# very
lively rumors of a “gentlemen's agree-
ment” with the "non-combine” pro-
“Of course, there's Calumet and
Hecla. 1 know that couldn’t be gunned
Into the combination. They could pay
dividends with copper at ten cents a
pound. But the other independents
know which side of their stock Is
spread witn dividends, all right.”
When It was further suggested that
(he Rio Tlnto mines had sold ahead
for a year, with the result that Euro-
pean imports from tae United States
had fallen off, and that the Consoli-
dated could r,ot go on forever holding
ap the price, Perclval said nothing.
The answer to that was the secret
negotiations for control of the Euro-
pean output, which would make tho
Consolidated master of the copper
world. Instead of disclosing this, he
pretended craftily to he encouraged by
the mere generally Hopeful outlook In
all lines. Western Trolley, to, might
be overcapitalized, anil Union Cordage
might also be in the hands of a pirat-
ical clique; but the demand for trolley
lines was growing every day. and
tordage products were not going out
of fashion by any means.
"You see,” he said to his adviser,
"nere’s what tiie most conservative
man in the street says in this after-
noon’s paper. ’That copper must nec-
essarily break badly, and the whole
boom collapse I do not beileve. There
is eDougli prosperity to maintain a
strong demand for the metal through
another year at least. As to Western

being so widely expressed in the
street, I am persuaded that they art

"There,” said Perclval, "there’s the
judgment of a man that knows the
game, but doesn’t happen to have a
dollar in either stock, and he doesn’t

either. Just hypothecate 10.000 of

Uncle Peter's professions of confi-
dence were unfailing, and Perclval
took new hope and faith in his Judg-
ment from them daily.
Nevertheless, as the weeks passed,
and tife mysterious insiders succeeded I
in their design of keeping the stock j
from rising, he came to feel a touch j
of anxiety. More, indeed, than he was j
able to communicate to Uncle Peter. I
without confessing outright that ho |
had lost faith in himself. That he i
was unable to do, even if it were true,
which he doubted. The Bines fortune
was now hanging, as to all but some
of the western properties, on the turn-
ing of the three stocks. Yet the old
man's confidence in the young man’s
acumen was invulnerable. No shaft
that Perclval was able to fashion had
point enough to pierce it. And he
was loth to batter it down, for he still
had the ga-nbler's faith in hls luck.
"You go- your fathers head in busi-
ness matti-s,” was Uncle Peter's in-
variable n.-ponse to auy suggestion of
failure. ”1 know that much—spite of
what all th* te gossip* say—and that's
all I want to know. And of course
you can't ever be no Shepler 'less yon
take yocr share of chances. Only don't
j ask my advice. You're master ot the .
game, and *«’n all la; in' ri^ht smack

Whereupon the young man, with
confidence in hitnseir newly inflated,
would hurry off to the stock ti ke-a.
He had ceased to buy the stocks out-
