THE EVENING BULL'-IHV- nnvor.nr.n tt t q t'DAY, .TANt'AHY 6, MOO.
ie..non c.iueett uirt iiOi.nn, uut rntn
cr n sciipo of self complacency When
people know you who bnte having tu
know yon, you tiro somebody The
thought passed, anil the next moment
ho found himself being Kind that Ellen
Rivers had n woman to epenk to or to
cry to uven tbottfih it wero only Lady
She was not crying when riie received
Mr. flyers. Shi waa radiant She told
lilnt that he? part was douoi now ho
must do bis part: then tho piincs
Would do bis. Tims thegreat eiiterprH
would be accomplished. That.odd pans
Struck Dyers again as be listened He
recollected tho beginning of Lady
Craiscnech's unfinished ttutiuce. "It
yon'io making n fool of that woman"
That Was just what ha wua doing He
pcapol fnjM tho thought and gratified
uis curiosity by tinning tho talk to
Mrs. Ithcts herself.
"Accomplished, eh?" aniil be. "And
it's ii ctown for tho princol"
"Yes. iiml great Inllnenco for yon "
"And you'll bo"
"I shall bo nothing. I shall go
nway. " Sho poko quickly and decisive
ly. Tho ipsolntlon was there, but to
ilwoll on it was datigcrono
"Where to?" ho inked
"Oh I don't know. Anywhere '
"D.ick to y.inr people y '
Shu looked at him for n moment. Ho
fad allowed himself to sneer. Her man
ner as she went on without taking any
notieo of his n.netloii proved that Lady
Crnigcnoih hail been tight in saying
that she was a J.uly
"My woik will bo dono." sho said,
"l'toni tho t!rt mninent I knew the
pilnco I determined to moiny Inllnenco
in this way Ho only be only needed
a little encouragement."
"And a littlo mmipj V
"1 gave him ono; jui'ro glv'n;, bim
uio otucr We mall both bo repaid by
his sueco"". "
"Vou'iu u ery htiiuigo woman," bo
said. Prolnbly ho did not know bow
ftralglit and haul his eyes wcro set on ,
lier They could not leave her. What ii i
pity it was that sho would not go with '
tho pilnco as his wlfo or even, to no
Lady Ciaigenocb's cbaritablo evasive .
phm- as tho was now To net tho
prlnco on tho ent of bis ancestors was
not an exploit that appealed to Mr. I
IJycis. but to sot this woman on n
llirmm would bo worth well, bow
inucliT Mr. Uyeis detected this question ,
in his own hcait Ho could not help r
Inclng things to figures. "Why don't
you go with him?" ho nknl bluntly j
"It would prejudice bim," she an-'
HWcred simpl. folding her hands in
her lap I
Then shoetrckhedout u band toward '
liim and said suddenly with n sudden '
ipilter in lit r oice, "I talk to you liko
thi?, and nil tbu timo I'm wanting to
go down on my Knees and kiss jour,
hands, because yon'io doing this."
Tho Umiu hand held tho sqnaio jaw
Tlio attitndo was afaoiito ono with
Mr. lljcrs. and his eyeswtro still on,
"Yii-, tbnt'x what I want to do, " she
wild, with a neivous laugh "It'M so
plmdld of yor ' Her bie.ith came
ffift iter ijes n Wo very blight. At
that moiiiciit Mr. Uycrs wi-hed that tho
quick breath and tho blight eyes were
for i i i in biui-elu not for tho Iielper ot
tho prince, and for that moment bo for
got Mis. llyerc and tho babh's in Poit
iainl place. It was ycats since bo bad
bad any such wi-li about any woman
Ho felt a sympathy with Prlnco .lulinii
who had almost ciled when ho signed
tho niniiilc-to, bccnnco if ho mounted
tho thiotio rilon Itiveis would leavu
"Wo want money now directly, " sho
went on "Wo want tho manifesto in
uciy bouvj. lean mauago tho dNtri
bution And wo must pay people
blibo them Wo iiin-t sow bced It'll
soon como up. And tho prlnco will act
at tho piopir time."
"How mitfb do you want now J" ho
"Half u million now and .another
next month," sho taid
"And moro beforo tho tndY'
"Yes, most likely Yon can get it,
"And shall I over gut it backY'
"Tho pilnco has given his word.'
Mr. Dyers assumed a doubtful air
"Oh, you'ro not as stupid as that. You
believe bim," sho added, almost con
temptuously "Do you mean it'n n
speculation? Of coulee it is I thought
yon bad comae "
"So I have,', said Bjcrs. And ho
added. "I may want it all loo." What
bo would want it fur was in bis mind,
but ho did not tell her
Ho thought n great deal about tho
matter that evening as ho sat by tho firo
opposite. to Mrs. llycts, who knitted a
stocking and said nothing Sho never
bioko in upon his thoughts, believing
t lint n careless iutciiuption might cost
a million Millions weio in bis mind
now. ami other things than millions.
Thero was bis faith with his n'soclatcs.
They.woio nil waiting his word When
bo gavo it, roinoiH would dio nwny, ro
ports bo contradicted, tho manifesto
poohpoohed Thoio would bo buyings,
tho stock would lift up her head again,
coiilideuco would return, and tho Hut
to buy, thollrst to return to faith in tho
ktock, would bo Mr Dyers and his asso
ciates. The public would como In nfter
ward, and when tho public canio in bo
and bis associates would goont ngaln,
ilcber by vast sums. Tho money and bis
good faith his honor among financiers
bound bim, and tho triumph of his
brains, tho beauty of his coup, tho ad
miration of his fellows, the unwilling
npplansu of tho bard hit all theso nl
lured bim mightily On tbo other side,
there was nothing except tho necessity
of disappointing Mrs. Rivers, of telling
her that the necessary resources were
not forthcoming j that the agitation and
rne mnnircsin nan serveii tiieir turn
that tbo prince had been made n fool of
that she herself bad been mudoii fool of
too Many such a revelation had ho
mnde to defeated opponents, calmly,
jestingly perhaps, between tho puffs of
his cigar, not minding what thoy
thought Why should ho mind what
Mrs. IJlvers thought t Sho would no
longer wish to kiss that lean, strong
hand of hU; sho might try (she bad
Lady Crnlgenocli to cry to). He looked
across at his wife, who was knitting
be would not have minded telling any
thin to her lint so intensely did ho
mind telling what bo had to tell to
Dllen Kims that tho millions, bis. good
faith, tho joy of winning and tho btnu
ty of the coup all hung doubtful In tho
balance nyutnst the look in tho eyes of
the lady at Piince Julian's "What an
Infertiiil fool I ami" ho uronncd Mrs.
Dyers gl.it,ctd up for n moment, smiled
eytnpath' ticnlly. and went on with her
knltUm? She supposed that there must
bo some toniporiry bitch about tho
latest million or pcihapsShum hud been
trublcniiiO' that was sometimes what
was upsettlmj Mr. Dyer.
Tbo liett Morning Mr Slium wa
troublesome He thought that tho mo
ment for netlon had como: tbo poor
stock bad been blown upon enough; the
process of lehabilitatlon should bcuin.
I Various other gentlemen, weighty with
money, uroppcti in witli their bats on
tho back of their heads and expressed
tbo same views. Dyers fenced with I

So In the next fortnight it happened.
Pilnco Julian looked on with vnguo
bewilderment, reading the articles nnd
paiagiapli! which told him that bo bad
abandoned all thought of action, bad
resigned IiIiiimU to wait for an express
recall fiom bis loving subjects (which
might bo expected to assail his cars on
tbo Cheek kalends); that, In fact, he
wonld do nothing. Mr-. Htvcrmvinl the
paiagraphs, too. and waited nnd waited
and waited for the coming of Mr. Dyeis
and tho nece-sary icouices. She smiled
at what h!io lend, for sho had coiilldencc
in tho taue, or nt least in hciaelf and
in Mr. Dyets. Dut the days went on
Slowly tho stock ioso: then in went the
public with ii iu0i. Tho paiagraphs
nnd the articles dwindled ami ceased;
tlioiu was a commotion niniewbere cNc
in Europe; Prlnco Julian and his mani
festo were foi gotten H bit did it mean?
Sho wrote ti not" n'kii'j Mr Dyeis to
It was ju-t at this tluii- ul-si that Mr

ovation of her town hoiw liotb these
actions involved, of eonre, -oino ex
penso bow much it is bind to say piu
elsoly Tho honse was 1 ither laigo, and
tho seat was very safe.
Pilnco Julian sat In his libraiy in
Palaco Oato and Mrs. Divers stood bo
sldo bim, her band resting on tbo arm
of bis chair Now nnd then the pilnco
glanced up nt her faco rather timidly.
They had agieed that matteis showed
no progress. Then Mrs. Kiveis had ho
"Has Dyers thrown us over?" tbo
pilnco asked at last
"Hush, hush I" bhoanswcied inn low
voico "Wait till bo's been Ho'h com
ing today," Her oico sank lower still
as sho wlilpeied "Ho can't have Oh.
ho can't I"
Thero was sllunco again. A fow min
utes passed boforo tho princo broke out
fietfully "I'm sick of tliowholo thing!
I'm Ty well as I nm. If they want
me. let them send for 1110. I can't fmco
myself on them."
Hlio looked down for a moment and
touched his hair with her baud.
"If this has como to nothing, 1 11
novcr try again I don't liko bolng
inado 11 fool of.
Her baud rested for n moment 011 his
forehead Ho looked up smiling.
"Wo can bo happy together," ho
murmured. "Let's throw up tho whole
thing nnd bo happy together." Ho
caught her hand in bis. "You'll stay
with ing anyhow 1"
"You want 1110 still?"
"You'll do what I ask?" ho wills
"That would put an end to it in
deed," sho said, smiling.
"Thank heaven for it!" ho exclaimed
A servant camo In nnd announced
that Mr Dyers was in tho drawing
"Shall I como, too?" asked tbo prince
"Ob, no," she answered, with 11
btrango littlo laugh. "What's tbo use
of bothering you? I'll seo bim."
junisu 111111 say soiiictiimg ucmiue,
urged Prince Julian "Let's hnvo an
end of it ono way or tbo other."
"Very well " Sho bent down and
kissed bim, and then went off to talk to
The fair boy with tho business brains
might hnvo been seriously of opinion
that thero wns something wrong with
Dyers' nerve had ho seen him waiting
for Mrs. Rivers in tho drawing room,
waiting to tell her that the nccessaiy
lesonices wero not forthcoming He
hoped that ho need tell her no 111010
than that; ho wished that ho had not
come, but ho could not endure the self
contempt which tho thought of running
away had brought with it. Ho must
faco her; tho woman could do no moro
than abuso him Ono other thought be
bad forn moment entertained of offer
ing to let her stand In, as Mr. Hhnin
had let Lady Cralgenocb Theio was
hardly nny sum which he would not
have been glad to glvo her. Dut long
beforo ho leached tho houso ho had de
cided that sho would not stand in.
"By heaven. I should think not." ho
said to himself indignantly
Dut bo had ono pliraso lendy for her
Ho reminded her of the paragraphs, the
tumors nnd tho manifesto "Wo have
by those means felt the pulse of tbo
public." he nio He paused; she said
nothing. "The iistilt Is not cr en
