she gavo tho housekeeper a quick glanco

llttlo tho rumor got abroad that MIsi
Dangerl'cld entertained a great donl, and

tbese middle-aged men were friends of her

Miss Dangci-Qeld to shield herself beneath the
wing of somo oldcrly virgin or a matronly
relative whoso huiband had Ions slnco paaied

Held needed u such protection, for none
would havo dared to treat her In any way
other than that of perfoct resjiect It
tocatro tho fashion to drop in during
tbo altcmoon at Miss Dangerflold's, and
many men often discussed grave matters of
Imjiortanco over an Innocent cup of tea.
Frequently, and In fact almost every night,
some two or thrco gentlemen woull stop to
dlnucr, and utter dinner sho woull ting and
play. Sho often laughingly ta'd she pre
ferred men to women, as tho cnno-satlon of
tho latter wearied her. Among those who
often called during tin afternoon was Philip
Comerfcrd; tndeol, If tho truth was known,
ComerforJ bad fallen in lovo with Ml

of her tecoud year tbo had purchased a villa

estate. "Dangerfleld," tald the men at tbo
club "must have been a richer man than

about her property sho would crily aay, "Ob,
Mr. Sharp Is to clever," or "Mr. Sharp
attends to tlote matters," or "Will you
Mr. Sbarpl" Some caustic and cynically dls
pcacd un would say, "-Ouoss Dangcrllell
never found Sharp u aUnigbty clever." That
MUt DaogcrfleU was enormously wealthy
everybody felt confident.
Vbllip Comerford' iartner was dead, but
his CriuV name still remained tho same.
When speaking of his uouw ho still clung to
tbo pronoun "we."

but suddenly tho tables turned and prices
went down, down, downl Wall street was
crowded with men with long faces and ru

If the market did not rally, when tho small
boy brought In n piece of pnper on which was
written (Jcorge Dalton.
"Is ho heror snld Comerford, turning pale
and scarco concealing tho nervous twitching
of his mouth.
"Yd, sir; ho wants to seo you."
"Show him In." Comerford glanced at
himself In tho glass, nnd noticed tho care
worn look ho wore, turning just as the door
oiend. To bis surprise, Instead of n rough,
elderly looking man, with shrewd eyes, ns he
had pictured tho injstcrious customer, there
stood liefora him a tall, slight, timid, blue
cyed young man, on whoso lip orchtulho
rnior had not cr pissed.
"Mr. Comerford," said tho visitor, In n deep
but plcaant voice,
"Mr. Dalton, It Is tlmo wo should meet I
like to see n man that has never clou 1 an nc

"I havo not been so fortunato ehowhere:

All that day Mr. Dalton sat In tho private
office of Comerford & Co., nnd the firm pur
chased several thousand shares to his ac
count Comcrford ccveral times endeavored
to engago him In conversation, but did not
succeed, as he begged to bo excused on tho
plea cf business. TLo heavy purchnso of
stocks created considerable excitement At
tho closo of tbo day Dalton left tho office,
snylnj, "I will bo h?ra to-morrow, Mr.

Comcrford said to his cashier, "Mr. Jackson,

.On tho following morning Comerford came
to tho conclusltn that after Dalton had drawn

and decided to nsk tho asslstanco Daltcn had
