THE hitler reference ( Bivens
nml tin crime f his corner iu
wbent liml routed Nun's ticlit
Ing blood. She would accept
the challenge of this rabble ami show
her contempt for Its opinions lu a
way that could not le mistaken. She
determined to give an entertainment
whofte magnificence would startle the
social world and be her defiant answer
to the critics of her husband. At the
name time It would serve the double
purpose of dazzling and charming the
Imagination of Stuart She would by
a single dash of power end his In
decision as to Blvens's offer and bind
with stronger cords the tie that held
him to her.
Her suggestion was received with
enthusiasm by her husband.
"All right" he said excitedly, -beat
the record.' Give them something to
talk about (be rest of their lives. I
don't mean tbjpsa poor fools In Union
square. Their ravlag is pathetic. I
mean the big bugs who think they
own the earth, the people who think
that we are neV comers apd that this
Island was built' for their accommoda
tion. Give them a knock out"
Nan spared no expenditure of time,
money and thought to the perfection
of ber plans. She employed n corps
of "trained artist, took them to her
home, told them what she wished and
they worked with enthusiasm to eclipse
In splendor New York's record of lavish
entertainments but always with the
reservation which she had Imposed
that nothing be done that might violate
the joons of beauty and good taste.
The long' dreamed night came, and
her guests had begun to arrive.
One was hurrying there to whom no
engrared Invitation had been sent, and
yet his coming was the one bis event
-of the evening, the one thing that
would make the night memorable.
The confession- of love , for, Stuart
wnlch Harriet had sobbed out In her
father's arms had been, the last straw
that. broke the backbone of, bis fight
gainst "Blvensi ; In a burst of 'gener
ous 'feeling he made up his mind to
eat his, pride, drive from his mind
very Differ IrnpnW.and forget that
b$ had ever hated thls'min or been
wronged by him. He could see now
that he bad neglected bis little girl
In' the 'fight he had been making for
other people and that her very life
might be at stake in the struggle she
was making f6r the man she loved.
Bivens had once offered, to buy his
business, lie had afterward .made
him a generous offer to coinprdniise
Ills suit, lie had uever doubted for a
moment that a compromise would "be
accepted the moment he should see fit
to give up.
He Instructed his lawyer to with
draw fhe apical before the day fixed
for flllftg the papers. The lawyer
rated and pleaded in vain. The doctor
was firm. He wrote lilvens a gener
ics personal letter In which he asked
thalf the past be forgotten ami that he
appoint a roeetlujr at which they could
arrange the terms of a filial friendly
'The act had lifted n load from his
hefirt. The sum he would receive, if
but; half ft! vena' original offer, wonld
be sufficient to keep him in comfort,
complete his daughter's course in
music and give hlin something with
which to continue his daily ministry
to the friendless and the lowly. It
was all he asked of the world now.
He wondered In his new enthusiasm
why he had kept up this bitter feud
for the enforcement of his rights by
law when there were so many more
urgent and important things in life
He waited four days for an answer
to his letter and receiving none wrote
again.' In the meantime the day for
final 'action on his appeal had passeVl
and his suit was legally ended. On the
last day his lawyer pleaded with him
for an hour to file the appeal suit and
then' compromise at his leisure. The
doctor merely smiled quietly and re
peated his decision:
"I'm done fighting. I've something
else to do."
When Blrens failed to reply to his
second letter he inade up his mind to
see him personally. He was sure the
letter had leen turned over to a lawyer
and the financier had never seen it.
He called at Bivens office three times
and always met the same answer:
Mr. Bivens Is engaged for every
hour today. Von must call again."
On the .fourth day, when he had
stayed until time for closing the office,
a recretary informed him that Mr.
Bivens was too busy with matters of
great importance to take up any new
business of any kind for a month and
that he had given the most positive
orders to that effect to all his men. If
he would return the first of next
in. .nth be would see what could bo
The doctor left in disgust. He deter
mined to break through this ceremonial 1

would remind him in a friendlv way of

had uheii him at an h-.ur of his life
when he needed it ni'.st. He wouldn't
cringe or pleail. lie would state the
whole situation frankly and truthfully
nml with dignity propo-e a settlement.
It was just at tliis moment that the
"Mr. Bivens is engaged for every hour
doctor learned of the preparations for
the dinner and ball at the Bivens pal
ace on Riverside drive. The solution
of the whole problem flashed through
his mind In an Instant They would
Lave professional singers without a
doubt, the great operatic stars and oth
ers. If Harriet could only be placed on
the program for a single song it would
be settled. Her voice would sweep
Bivens off his feet and charm the bril
liant throng of guests. He would have
to accompany her there, of course. . At
the right moment he would make him
self known. A word with Bivens and
it would be settled.
He lost no time In finding out the
manager of the professional singers for
the evening and through Harriet's en
thusiastic music teachers arranged for
her appearance. From the moment this
was accomplished his natural optimism
returned. His success was sure. He
gave his time" with renewed energy to
his work amdng the poor.
On tbe day of the ball Harriet was
waiting In a fever of impatience for his
return from the hospitals to dress. At
half past 7 their dinner wa9 cold and
he had not come. It was 8 o'clock be
fore his familiar footstep echoed
through tbe "halL
' He ate a hasty meal, dressed In
thirty minutes and at 9 o'clock led
Harriet to the side entrance of Bivens'
grat house on the drive.
lie was in fine spirits. He rejoiced
again that he trad made up his iniwl
to live the life of faith and good fel
lowship with all men. including the
little swarthy master of the palace he
was about to enter. And so with
light heart he stepped through the
door which the soft white hand of
death opened. How could he know?
As Stuart dressed for Nan's party he
brooded over his new relation to his
old sweetheart with increasing pleas
ure. Never had Bivens offer seemed
more generous and wonderful. His
pulse beat with quickened stroke as
he felt the new sense of power with
which he would look out on the world
as a possiSle millionaire.
He gazed over the old square with
a feeling oi regret at the thought of
leaving it. He had grown to love the
place in the past years of loneliness,
but was deciding too soon, perhaps.
There were some features of Bivens'
business he must understand more
clearly before he could give up his
freedom and devote himself body and
soul to the task' of jnoney making as
He went across the square to take
a cab at the Brevoort. His mood was
buoyant He was looking out on life
once more through rose tinted glasses.
At Eighth street he met at right ancles
the swarming thousands hurrying
across town from thoir work heavy
looking men who tramped with tired
step, striking the pavements dully with
their nailed shoes, tired, anxious wom
en, frowzy headed little girls, sad eyed
boys, half awake all hurrying, the
fear of want and the horror of charity
in their silent faces. And yet the si-rht
touched no responsive chord of sym
pathy in Stuart's heart as it often had.
As he drove uptown the avenue flash
ed with swift, silent automobiles and
blooded horses. These uptown crowds
through whose rushing streams he
passed were all well dressed and car
ried bundles of candy, flowers and
Stuart felt the contagious enthusi
asm of thousands of prosperous mer
and women whose lives :it the moment
flowed atnuit and enveloped his own.
What was it that made the difference
lietween the squalid atmosphere below
Fourth street and the slowiri. flash

Stuart passed tip the gratl stairs
through a row of gorgeous flunkies
and greeted his hostess.
Nan grasped his hand with a smile
"You are to lead me in to dinner,
Jim. at the stroke of 8."
"I'll not forget," Stuart answered,
his face flushing with surprise atthe
"Cal wishes to see you at once. You
will find him in the library."
Bivens rnet him at the door.
"Ah. there you are!" he cried cor
dially. "Come back downstairs with
me. I want you to see some people
as they come in tonight Tve a lot
of funny things to tell you about
The house was crowded with an
army of servants, attendants, musi
cians, singers, entertainers and re
porters. The doctor had been recognized by
one of the butlers whdm he had be
friended on his arrival from tbe Old
World. The grateful fellow had gone
out of the way to make him at home,
and in his enthusiasm had put an al
cove which opened off the ball room
at his and Harriet's disposal. The
doctor was elated at this evidence of
Bivens' good feeling and again con
gratulated himself on his common
sense in coming.
Bivens led Stuart to a position near
the grand stairway, from which he
could greet his guests as they re
turned from their formal presentation
to the hostess.
He kept np a running fire of bio
graphical comment which amused
Stuart beyond measure. It was a rev
elation of the crooked- ways In which
Bivens' guests or their fathers or grand
fathers had amassed their millions,
many of them by robbing the govern
ment, the people.,
?Tbe world has never heard most
of these storiestJiit's funny!" Stuart
exclaimed after a time.
"Not so funny, Jim. when you think
of the power of money to make the
world forget. God only knows how
many fortunes in America had their
origin hi thefts from the nation during
the civil war, and the systematic
frauds that have been practised on our
government 'since. I've turned some
pretty sharp tricks, Jim, In stalking
my game In this big man hunt of Wall
street but at least I've never robbed
the wounded or the dead on a battle
field and I've never used a dark lan
tern to get into the government vaults
at Washington. I'm not asking you
to stand for that."
"If you did"-
"Yes, I know the answer, but speak
softly, his majesty the king approaches
-long lire the king!"
Bivens spoke In low, half joking
tones, but the excitement of his voice
told Stuart only too plainly that he
fully appreciated the royal honor his
majesty was paying in this the first
social visit he had ever made to his
home. The king gave him pleasant
nod and grasped Stuart's hand with
a hearty cordial grip, ne was a man
of few words, but he always said ex
actly what he thought.
"I'm glad to meet you, Mr. Stuart.
You've done us a good turn In sending
some of our crooks to the penitentiary, i
You've cleared the air and made it
possible for an old fashioned banker to
breathe in New York. It's a pleasure
to shake hands with you."
The king passed on into the crowd,
the focus of a hundred admiring eyes.
Bivens could scarcely believe his ears
when be listened with opeu mouth
while his majesty spoke to Stuart.
"Great Scott. Jim!'' he gasped at last.
"That's the longest speech I ever heard
him make. I knew you had scored the
biggest hit any lawyer has made in
this town in a generation, but I never
dreamed you'd capture the king's im
agination. I'm beginning to think my
offer wasn't so generous after all. Look
here, you've got to promise me one !
thing right now. When you do go in
to make your pile it shall be with me
and no other man."
Nan passed and threw him a gra

promise. At least the king is one ex
ception to your indictment of all great
"That's the funniest thing of all,"
P.ivens whispered. "He's not m ex
ception. Understand. I'm loyal to the
kin::. He's a wonder. I like him. I
like his bii: head, his biir sh.-lggy eye j
brow. Ids hi: hands and bit; feet. T j
like to hear him growl and snap hi.il

"When Fremont found that the guns

P.ivens paused and a dreamy look
came ni'io the black eyes.
"Jim." he continued with slow em
phasis. - I'd rather get my fingers on
his throat in a death struggle than
Ic.id the combined armies of the world

Stuart was silent
The soft tones of hidden oriental
gongs began to chime the call for din
ner. The chimes melted into a beau
tiful piece of orchestral music which
seemed to steal from the sky, so skill
telly had the musicians been conceal
ed. Nan suddenly appeared by Stuarf s
side, and he wns given the honor of
lending his hostess into the banquet
hall before oven the king, while the
great ones of earth slowly followed.
The Dance of Death.
A FLUSH of excited pleasure
overspread Stuart's face as
he led his beautiful hostess to
the dining room. Apparently
on entering the banquet hall they were
stepping outdoors mto an enchanted
pine forest. The walls were complete
ly hidden by painted scenery repre
senting the mountains of western
North Carolina. The room had been
transformed into a forest, trees and
shrubbery melting imperceptibly into
the scenery' on the walls and mock
ing birds were singing in cages hidden
high among the boughs of the trees.
"Why, Nan," Stuart gasped, "that's
a view of the river 'hills at home
where you and I used to roam."
"Well, if you hadn't recognized It I
should never have forgiven you. Are
yon pleased with my fantasy?'
"Pleased is not the word for it"
he replied quickly. "I'm overwhelmed.
I never thought you so sentimental."
"Perhaps I'm not; perhaps Tve only
done this to pleaso a friend. I)o you

Stuart gazed ith increasing astonish
ment at the rpagnificently set table.
Winding in anjd out among the solid
silver candelabra a tiny stream of
crystal water flowed among miniature
trees and flowers on its banks. The
flowers were nil blooming orchids of
rarest coloring and weirdly fantastic
The service was all made for this
occasion, silver, cut class and china.
Each piece had stamped or etched on
it the coat of arms of his native state,
with the motto, - Pence and Plenty."
"And you've done all this in six
"wrecks? It's incredible."
"The world will ay tomorrow morn

When the feast ended at 10:30 Nan
led the way to the ballroom, where
the entertainment by hired dancers,
singers and professional entertainers
began on an Improvised stage.
During this part of the profram the
women and men of the banqueting
pafty who were to appear In fhe fancy

to the rooms above to dress for their
Stuart noted with some astonishment
the peculiar somber effects of the ball
room, lie had expected a scene of
splendor. Instead the impression Was
distinctly funereal. The light were
dimmed like the Interior of a theater
during the performance, and tbe lofty
gilded ceilings with their mural decora
tions seemed to be draped In filmy
The professional entertainment be
gan on the little stage amid a univer
sal gabble which made it impossible
for anything save pantomime to be in
telligible beyond the footlights. Star
after star," whose services had cost
$1,000 each for one hour, appeared
without commanding the slightest at
tention. , Stuart turned to the program In his
hand and idly read the next number:
"A song by an unknown star."
He was wondering what Joke tbe
manager ,was about to perpetrate on
the crowd when his ear caught the first
sweet notes df Harriet's voice singing
tbe old song he loved so well, the song
she. had first sung the day he came
from the south.
His heart gave a throb of pain. Who
could have prepared this humiliation
for his little pal? He pushed his way
through the throng of chattering fools
until he stood alone straight In front of
the slender little singer. She saw him
at once, smfied and sang as be had
never heard her sing. To his further
surprise Stuart -saw the doctor stand
ing in the shadows at tbe corner of the
stae looking over the gossiping, noisy
crowd with a look of anger and horror.
When the last note of the song- died
away, quivering with a supernatural
tenderness and passion, he brushed a
tear from his eyes, lifted his hands
high above his head and made a mo
tion which said to hert "Tumultuous
She nodded and smiled, and he rush
ed behind the scenes to ask an expla
nation. He grasped both her hands and
found them cold and trembling with
"What on earth does this mean?"
"Simply ttyt I was engaged to sing
tonight, and I wanted to surprise yon.
Didn't you like my song?"
"it lifted me to the gates of heaven,
"Then I don't care whether any one
else beard it or not. But I did so much
wish that she might have heard It or
her husband because they are from the
"But I don't understand your father
hates Bivens so."
A big hand was laid on his shoulder,
he turned and faced tho doctor smiling.
"But I don't hate him, my boy! I've
given up such foolishness. We've
buried the hatchet I'm to see him in
a few minutes and we are to be good
"Bivens invited you here to discuss
a business proposition tonight!" Stuart
"No, no, no," the doctor answered.
"I came with Harriet, of course. Her
music teacher placed her on the pro
gram. But Mr. Bivens and I have bad
some correspondence and I'm to see
him in a little while and talk things
over quite Informally, of course, but
"He has agreed to a conference
here?" the young lawyer asked,
"Why, of course. His butler has Just
told mo he would see me Immediately

Stuart breathed easier and turned to
"You look glorious tonight, little pal:
Funnv that I never saw you In even
ing dress before. You look so tall and
queenly, so grown, so mature. You're
beginning f make me feel old, child.
I'll be thinking of you as a grown
"I am twenty-four, rou know," she 1
said, simply. I
"I have never believed it until to- ;
night. I wouldn't have known you at j
first but for your voice. I had to rub
my eyes then."
The lights were suddenly turned
lower, approachinc total darkness.
Tho attendants noiselessly removed
the temporary stage and cleared the j
great mom for the dancers. 1
As the chimes struck the hour of
midnight, skeleton heads slowly began
to appear peeping from the shadows
of the arched ceiiing and from every
nook and corner of the huge cornice
and pillars. J naileries of tilmy crape '
..owing gently n me trecx were
lighted by sulphurous hued electric
rays from the balconies. Tiny electric
lights blinked In every skeleton's
sunken eyes and behind each grinning
row of teeth Snddenty two white
figures drew aside tho heavy curtains
in the archway and tbe dancers
marched into the somber room.
Tbe men were dressed as shrouded
skeletons and the women as worms
The men wore liht flimsy gray robes
on which skillful artists had painted
on four sides In deep colors the pic
tures of human skeletons.
The women wore curious light robes
of cotton fiber which were drawn over
the entire Unly ami cave to each figure
the ?tpnn!H"e of a huge caterpillar.
The strange figures liecan to move
slow ly across the polished floor to the
strains of a ghostlike waltx.
From the corners- of the high balco
nies strange lights flashed, developing
in hideous outlines and phosphor
escent colors of the skeletons and long,
fuzzy, exaggerated lines of the ac
companying worms. The effect was
'Suddenly the music stopped with a
crash. Each ghostly couple, skeleton
and worm, stood motionless. The
silvery note of a trumpet called from
the sky. The blinking eyes Xf the
death heads in the celling and on the
walls faded slowly. The trumpet
pealed a second signalthe darkness
fled and the great room suddenly
Waxed ;wtth 10.000 electric lights. The
orchestra struck the first notes of a
thrilling waltz, and. presto. In an In
stant the women appeared In all the
splendor of the most gorgeous gowns,
their bare arms and necks flashing
with priceless' Jewels, and each man
bowed before her In Immaculate even
From tha four corners of the) vast room
were released thousands of gorgeous
ly tinted butterflies. Imported from
tbe tropics for the occasion. As the
dancers glided through the dazzling
scene these wonderfully colored crea
tures fluttered about them la myriads,
darting and circling In every direction
among the flowers and Mgnta until thti
room seemed a veritable fairy rand.
A burst of applause swept the crowd
as Nan's radiant, figure passed, encir
cled bj the ana of the leader. ... .
Stuart nodded and clapped his hands
A more marvelous transformation
scene "could scarcely be imagined.
When Nan had passed he1 turned to
speakto Harriet but she had gone.
A soft band was suddenly laid on bis
arm, and he turned to confront Nan,
her eyes flashing with triumph, ber
cheeks flushed and her lips parted in a
"Come. I'm going to honor you by,
sitting out the next two dances.
1 When she had seated herself by his
side under a bower of roses be was
very still for a moment She looked
tfp with a quizzical expression and
"A penny for your thoughts. Am I
o very wicked after all?"
"I don't think I have ever seen any
thing more dazzllngly beautiful than
your banquet and ball, except? the wo
man who conceived and executed it I
was Just wondering whether your
Imagination was vivid enough to have
dreamed half the splendors of such a
life when you turned from the little
cottage I built for you."
A look of pain clouded tbe fair face,
and she rifted her jeweled hand.
'Tlease, Jim, I'd like to forget some
"And you haven't forgotten V
She looked straight Into his eyes and
answered In even tones:
Both were silent for a long while,
and then they began to talk In low
tones of tbe life they had lived as boy
and girl in tbe old south and forgot
the flight of time.
