Bradthurst had coal black hair and eyes,
and It was sometimes hinted ho was rather
"sporty" for a rcspectuhlo young man of
the sodato Quaker City. His manners
were dashing, and he bad always been
flatteringly successful In attracting tho at

At length Granton began to fanoy him

Bradthurst thought so too.
Asa result tho young man with tho
coal blaok eyes began to drink moro than
