she could say tn herself was that ap
parently he had some right to the
name of Loveland nnd that he really
did seem to expect that "somehody

Willi his evening clothes under his

back to his friend mil, who wns nl

ured humbly among the 150 lodgers
for that night.
THE MAN WHO WAITS.
Tlinitrc came no cablegram from
Scotland next day. Lovolatid's
mother did not answer his ap
peal. But Val tried to per
suade himself thnt this was not
strange. Pcrhain she could not get to
gether such n sum ns he had nslod for
without n little delay, but she would
send as soon ns possible. lie wns as
sure of that as ho was sure that his
present address ought to bo Qrst circle,
The dollar which remained to him
after sending his expensive cry ocros
tho sea was gone. He borrowed of
It til Willing, who offered nnd was de
lighted to lend In a day or two nt
most, Lovelnnd slid, ho would repay
and planned to giro It 111 n handsome
present as well. Mennwhllo Loveland
passed his tlmo miserably between
Alexander the Great's nnd tho Hat
.hotel or walking tho streets In the
desperate hope of seeing somo English
face ho knew. Ho saw many pleas
ant faces, to whom no appeal of sor
row would bo made In vnln. But they
xvero strangers' faces, and ho was not
a beggar yet.
Four dnys dragged by. Including one
ghastly Sunday, and when there wns
still no word from Lady Loveland Vnl
began to feel tho heavy conviction
that nono would cer come. Somo aw
ful spell had fallen upon him. It seem
ed, a curso which mado him n pariah
even for thoso who loved him best.
He thought ocr his past nnd real
ized that he had been sclllsh. Never
beforo had It occurred to him to pity
others beyond n "poor old chap, so
sorry, don't you know," nnd u ipilck
forgotttlng, but now ho was filled with
a dumb sympathy for oery ono who
Loveland did not always tako bis

tho Great's when Alexander himself
and not Isldora was behind tho coun
ter. Val had mot the "boss" now, though
not odlclnlly. Wlillo bo had a few
dimes and nickels tn his pocket bo
pntrontrcd tho restaurant, glad to hnvo
a gllmpso of Isldora's friendly, pretty
faco and n chanco to warm himself nt
tbo glowing stovo. Tho "boss" regard
ed him as a client a "queer cuss"
down on his luck, but worth being
civil to, for In Now York you rover
know how men's fortunes might
Nevertheless, Loveland realized that
Alexander had as much real kindness
of heurt for tho world la general as
Sbylock or n tiger.
If you deserved to get on yon got on

On the fifth daj tho situation passed

lind penniless, but ho could not brltc
himself to 1 orrow more of Hill's pitiful
nickels and hard earned dimes.
Hill, I ran't stand this eny longer.

"It ain't easy to do either In New

"To think of mj being practically re

"Do J on think old Alexander would

"Oh, I guess I wouldn't tell him the
story." Kill ndWscd hastily.
"Well, he's got a sharp tongue, Alex

"In Enghnd such n fellow could only
get at me nt all through mj sonants'."
"I suppose so," agreed Hill gently,
"hut this Isn't England"
"I thould think It wasn't, worso

"On n letter of credit?" '

Loveland gave up hopo of winning
confidence and obtaining dollars from
Alexnnder the Great. "This statu of
tilings Is enough to make n man blow
his brains out!" he exclaimed.
"I guess jou need onr brains now
more than ou ccr did," suggested
lull, "and jou couldn't git 'em put

Isldora looked nt hhn with respect

Neither man spoke. Tho sound of her
little high heeled slippers clicking on
the uncarpeted stair was sharp In
their ears. In threo minutes beforo
Lo eland had had tlmo to repent sho

"Pa says 'Done!'" sho panted. "He's
going to ue jou for all jou'ro worth"
"I bet he will," murmured Hill, sotto

guessed In what way Alexnnder tho
Great meant to inako tho "swell wait

"Lesley, wasn't Lo eland tho nanio
of that lord jou knew on tho boat?"
nsked Lesley's mint, llarbara, peering

"Yes," said Lesley. "Don't you re

"I don't remember, I'm sure," re
plied Lesley, beginning to scrnwl tho

the top of the pago which ought by
this tlmo to hno been coered with

hero nud heroine.
"Is thcro something about him lu tho

"Tnko the paper, dear. Don't get

But Lesley did get tip and Btood

Lesley did not go back to her sofa
nnd her story writing. Sho picked up
the paper which Mrs. Lo eland had
left lying on the table, but she did not
read. She went to tho desk where sho
kept, papers- and took a check book
from a drawer.
"No, that won't do," sho said to her
self nfler thinking for n minute. Sho
put tho check book back lu Its placo
nnd opened nuothcr drnwer, not lock-

Tho second drawer ,was full o(

but, poor or rich, authors are piocr
blally easy nbout parting with their
earnings, and southern born Lesley
was no exception to the rule.
