the edge of tlie Ptreet. A crowd of on

wiij. and tlien more leisurely up ,i10
broad Ktalr Ho was nn atldutlc young
fellow of 20 or tliereabont Tho mo
ment ho entered tho largo reception
room Ids eyes wnndered searchingly
over tho gallant company, apparently
looking for some one whom ho could
not find He pased intna farther room,
Mid through that into a third, and
thcro his cearching gaze met tho staro
of Billy Heckle. Hetklo was a young
man of nhont the sumo ago as Lord
Stamford, and ho alo was seemingly
on the outlook for some ono among tho
arriving guet Tlio monient ho saw
Lord Stansford a slight ftown gathered
upon his brow, uud ho moved among
the throng toward tho spot where the
other stood Stansford saw him coming,
and did not seem to bo so pleased as
might have been oxpected, bnt ho mado
no motion to avoid tho young man, who
accosted him without salutation.
"Look here," said Heckle gruffly. "1
want a word with you."
"Very well," answered Stanoford in
a low voice, "bu long as yon spenK in
tones no ouo else cuti hear I am willing
"Yon will listen whether or no," re
plied tho other, who nevertheless took
tho hint and 8abducd his voice. "I
have met you on various occasions late
ly, and I want to givo you a word of
warning You seem to bo very devoted
to Miss Liiidcrliam; so perhaps you do
not know cliu is engaged to mo. "
"I havo heard it so stated," said
Lord Stanfend, "but I harcfonnd some
difficulty In believing tho statement."
"Now, seo hero I" cried tho horsy
young man "I want none of your
cheek, and I givo yon fair warning that
if yon liny any more attention to tho
young lady I shall tucpoao you in public.
1 mean what I H.iy, and 1 am not going
to stand any of ymir tionsenso. "
Lord Stamford's face grew pale, and
ho glanced about him to see if by
chance any ono had overheard tho ru
mark. Ho seemed nbont to rcent it,
bnt finally gained control over himself
"Wo aro in your father's house, Mr.
Heckle, and I ntippoo it is Quito safo
to addres a remark liku that to me I"
"I know it'snuito safe anywhere,'
replied Hecklo. "You've got the
straight tii from mo; now eco you pay
uttentiou to it."
Hecklo turned nwny. and Lord Stans
ford, after standing thcro for n mo
ment, wandered back to tho middle
room. The conversation had taken placo
somewhat near n heavily curtained
window, and tho two men stood slight
ly apart finni tho other gncsts. When
they left tho spot, tho cm tains wero
drawn gently apart, and n tall, very
handsome, yonng lady stepped from be
tween them. Sho watched Lord Stuns
ford's retreat for a moment, and then
made as though sho would follow him,
but one of her ndmrrcrs came forward
to claim her for the first dance. "Jlnsic
has just begun in tho ballroom," ho
said. Sho placed her hand on tho arm
of her partner and went out with him.
When tho danco was over, sho was
amazed to see Lord Stansford still in
tho room Sho had expected him to
lenro when the son of his host spoke so
insultingly to him, but tho young man
had not departed. Ho appeared to bo
enjoying himself immensely and danced
through every danco with tho utmost
devotion, which lather put to shamo
many of the young men who lounged
against tho walls. Never once, how
ever, did ho coino near Miss Lindcrham
until the evening was well on, and
then ho passed her by accident. Sho
toadied him on tho arm with her fan,
und ho looked quickly around.
"Oh, how do yon do, Jliss Lindcr
ham 1" ho said.
"Why havo yon ignored me all the
evening?" she asked, looking at him
with sparkling nyes.
"I haven't ignored you," ho replied,
with bouio embarrassment. "I did not
know yon wero hero."
"Oh, tlint is woro than ignoring I'
replied Miss Lindcrham, witli n laugh,
"Hut now that jou know I nm here I
wish yon to take mo into the. garden.
It la becoming insufferably hot in
"Yes," said tho young man, getting
red in tho face, "it is warm."
The girl could not help noticing his
reluctance, but nevertheless sho took
his arm, and they passed through sev
iral looms to tho terrace which faced
tho garden Lord Stafford's anxious
eyes again seemed to search tho rooms
through which they passed, nnd again,
on encountering tlioso of Billy Heckle,
Mies Llnderhaiu'a escort shivered
slightly as ho passed ou. The girl won
dered what lnjbtcry was at tho bottom
of all this, and with feminine, curiosity
resolved to tlnd out, even if she had to
ask Lord Stansford himself. They
sanntered along ono of tho walks until
they reached a seat far from the honso.
The music floated out to them through
the open windows, faint in the dis
tance. Miss Lindcrham sat down and
motioned Lord Stansford to alt beside
her. "Now," she said, turning her
ii.nmsomo race run upon mm, "why
havo you avoided mo all tho ovcningi'
"1 haven't avoided Jou," ho said.
"Tut, tut : you mustn't contradict a
lady, you know I want tho reason, the
real reason and no excuses."
Ucforo the young man could reply
Billy Heckle, his faco Unshed with wlno
or anger, or perhaps both, strodo down
tho path and confronted them.
"I gave you your warning," ho cried.
Lord Stansford sprang to his feet;
Miss Llnderhnm amio alo and looked
in somu alarm fioin ono young man to
"Stop a moment, Ilccklol Don't say
a word, and I will meet yon whero you

"Afterward ia no good tome," an-
"I gave yon tho tip and

"I beg j ou to remember," s.nidStans-
ford, in a low volco with n tremor in
it, "there is a lady present."
llisa Lindcrham turned to go.
"Stopa moment I" cried Heckle. "Do

Miss Lindcrham stopped, bnt did not
"I'll tell yen who lie is. Ho Is n hired

taking one quick htep forward, ho smote
Heckle fair between the two eyes and
fulled him to tho ground.
"Yon curl" ho cried. "Got up or 1
shall kick yon and hnto myself forever
after fordoing it."
Young Hecklo picked himself op,
cursing under his breath.
"I'll scttlo with yon, my man," he
said. "I'll get a policeman. You'll
spend tho remainder of this night in
"I shall do nothing of tho sort," an
swered Lord Stansford, catching him
by both wrists with nn iron grasp
"Xow, pay attention to me, Billy Hec

Young Heckle slunk away, and Lord
Stansford turned to Mls Liuderliaui,
who stood looking on. speechless with
horror and surpriso
"What a bruto you arc I" cho said,
with a quiver in her under lip.
"Yes," lie replied quietly. "Most of
ns men aro brutes when you take n lit
tle of tho varnish off. Won't you sit
down, Ml Underlain) 1! Thcro is no
need now to reply to tho question yon
asked mo. Tho incident you havo wit
nessed and what you havo heard have
been its answer,"
Tho young lady did not sit down.
Sho stood looking at him, her eyes tof
tenlug a trille.
"It is trim, then t" bho said.
"Is what true?"
"That you aro hero ns a hired guest ?'
"Yes, it is true."
"Then why did you knock him down
if it was the trnthi"
"Because ho spoko tho truth before
"I hope, Lord Stansford, yon don't
mean to imply that I nrn in any wuy

"Yon aro, nnd in more than one
senso of tho word. That young fellow
threatened mo when I camo hero to
night, knowing that I was his father's
hired guest. I do not wish exposure,
and so I avoided you. Yon spoko to mo
and asked me to bring you out hero. I
camo, knowing that if Heckle saw mo
ho would curry ont his threat. Ho has
carried it ont, and I have had the pleas
nro of knocking him down."
Miss Lindcrham sank upon tho scat
and onco more motioned with her fan
for him to tako tho placo beside her.
"Then yon receive 5 gnineaa a night

ford, "I get only 2 gnineaa I aupposo

"Oh, 1 see1" said Miss Lindrrham
tapping with her fan upon her knee.

Tho young man sat silent for a few

"1 thought you did when you were

never mind. I know a lady who has
plenty of money. Shu is an artist at

ually pestered by offers of marriage,
ami sho knows those offers come tn her
largely becauso of her mouoy. Now,
this lady wishes to marry n mnn, nnd
will scttlo upon him 2,000 a year.
Would you ho willing to nccept that
offer if I got you an Introduction?"
"It would depend very lunch on tho
lady," said Stansford.
"Oh, no, it wouldn't, for yon would
hnvo nothing whatever to do with her
except tlint jou would ho her hired

Thero was a long sllcnco between
them after Maggie Lindcrham ceased
speaking. Tho young man kicked tho
gravel with hia toes, and his eyes wero
bent upon tho path before him. "Ho is
thinking it over, "said Miss Lindcrham

up, witli n sigh.
"Did yon sco tho Into scnfllo between

"Did 1 see it?" bho asked. "How

"Ah, then, did you notlco that when

"Yes, nnd threatened to break his

"Quito so. I should have done it,

He Got th Money.

In London, he cabled to his father,
"Ploueo send 100 quick," and signed
his namo, Willlo Blank.
Mr. Dlank took this cablo to the

puzzlod wny: "Willlo has just cabled
for 100. Now, I wonder what the boy
wants to do with it."
"Cable and Mud out," was tho sug
