Fortuno was asleep. The mother
went over to tho bod and gently shook

Ryanno was Intensely dissatisfied
with himself. For once his desperate
meed had carried him tco far. Ho
had mado too many confessions, had
antagonized a woman who was every

they were moving hold him simply be

wholly his twisted outlook upon life.
There was n forbidding humor in the
whole affuir, too, which ho alone saw.
Tho possible rewards were to him of
secondary consideration. It was the
fuu of tho thing. It was tho fun of
tho thing that had put him squarely
upon tho wide, short road to perdi

spendthrift, then a thief. Tho fun of

over a dozen times, with puckered

moment, remember the most essen

office of the agent to whom he must
this very morning send reply. Hur
riedly ho fished out tho letters; ono
