WALTER SCOTT STETSON, readier of
acting, elocution, danctng. 1324 12th
Helped by The Sinner.
Young Tom Bickers, undergraduate of
University College, Oxrord, was as popu
lar a man as any in the whole 'varsity.
He was a good fellow, a good athlete, a
good sportsman. Had he taken the trouble
lo read he would also Lave bten a good
The dons did more than call him Idle,
they threatened him with pains and pen
alties, they communicated his delinquen
cies to the young man's father. The lat
ter was an austere man and a bishop the
Bishop ot Silchestero well Inowu as a
pillar of the Church Association.
"You ough t to have more 6cnso and more
consideration," said the bishop. "You
know that I have a large family, and that
my exiieuses are heavy. I am investing
capital in your education because I thiuk
a good education Is the best investment
I cau make lor you. It is not only foolish,
it Is positively dishonest ot you, to 'naste
jour time as you are now doing. When
you leave Oxiord you will have to look
out for yourself; aud then jou will find
whatn difference a good degree makes to
"I don't believe that it makes such an aw
ful ilif f erence," answered Tom. "I've heard
you say yourself.father.thatyoudidntread
much when jou were at the 'varsity. And
yet, though you only took a third, they've
made you a bishop. You see," Tom hast
ened to add, for he saw n frown gathering
on the Episcopal brow, "they knew what a
good man you were, without applying the
paltry test of a little Latin and Greek."
"True," assented the bUhop, "I was a
fool, and wasted my tltuemostculpably.But
becauoo I was a fool and liave been fortu
nate to escape the consequence of my folly
Uif re is no reason why you should be a fool
aud expect to escape-tho consequences of
yours. Besides." said his lordship, with a
profound look, "times have changed since I
was young, Tom."
"I dare say they have, father."
At Oxford the bishop had gone the pace
with the best of tiitm. He often told, with
a self-satisfied air, how cleverly he had
broken the intelligence of his debts to his
father, and how blue the old gentleman
looked when he beard. If Tom had made
such a communication to the bishop now he
would have betn kicked straight out of tho
Tom. hotvever.did not make such a com
munication. Tbe debts evisled. but the
time for revealing tbein was nut yet ripe.
Tom Imped that it never would be. .
He had u great coup in his mind's eye by
which he epccted to gain a large enough
sum of money to discharge bis liabilities.
If you looked at the belting quotations you
would see that It was, in fact, 30 to 1.
Thi was the price beoked at Tattersalls"
about Mr. Mllllngton's Tbe Sinner. Mr.
Millington was a new name on the tnrf.
It covered tho personality ot our friend
The Sinner had been accepted for the
Lincolnshire handicap. How Tom had be
come her owner demands a word of ex
A month or so previously, when Tom's
luck star was Tor a short time in the as
scendant, be had engaged In a great duel
at poker with young Viscount Vllladome,
of the house. Villadoe had acquired two
or three very tolerable horses. The best
of these horses was The Slnnr a bay colt
of respectable though not first-rate ncdl-
gree. He had been entered for the Lin
colnshire handicap of that year before
Vllladome bought blm.
Thegreat poker duel between Tom Bickers
and Vllladome took placeattheendot Janu
ary, eight -weeks liefore the Lincoln meet
ing. The vlHcount's rooms In Peckwater
were the scene of the encounter.
Tom had never enjoyed such luvk. Time
after time Vllladome weij down before him.
The stakes grew hotter as the game pro
ceeded, bit Tom's luck never deserted him.
At ten minutes to 12 he rose the winner
of $2,000. Vllladome took his drubbing
well. He wrote Tom out a check for his
winnings without turning a hair. Tom re
ceived the pink slip of paper and was about
to pocket it, when an idea suddenly occurred
"I say. Villadnme." cried the beardless
6portsman, planking down the check in
the center of the tahle, "there's Just time
tor another deal. I'll play you for The
Sinner against this check."
The cards were dealt. The hands were
shown. Luck had declared once more for
The $2,000 soon went. There were manr
rapacious creditors to be appeased with
payments on aiwmt, and there were many
current expenses to be met. which could only
.be satisfied with cash. Bat then he had
The Sinner, and it was to The Sinner that
ne had looked Tor his means of salvation.
Tom did not know exactly where to turn
for money. But at last it occurred lo him
that he might go over to Newmarket and
Interview Latterday. the trainer. Latter
day was a man of wealth, and possibly he
could be indue d to advance him some mon
ey on the security of The Sinner.
"Huni!"s.ild the trainer. "I don't usually
lend money. How much do you want?"
"Twenty-five hundred dollars," answered
"It's Just this way. Mr. Eiders. The
Sinner may be worth a good bit of money,
and he mayn't be worth much. Tin -. 'stlie
stuff in him Tor a flyer I lielleve. But he
seems a trifle shy and as he has never
been rnn in public devil alone Inows how
he'll acquit himself at Lincoln next week.
However. I'll make yon this offer I'll give
you $2,300 for a half share In the colt."
"You mean you'll buy half The Sluner
for $2..V0?" said Tom.
"rri-cisily," answered Levi Latterday.
Levi Uttcrday opened his bureau, sat
down thereto and spent the next five min
utes in drawing up a short form of agree
ment, which he handed to Tom to sign.
Tom read it through, duly signed It and
received Latterday's check.
A letter which he had from his mother
a day or two afterwards made him feel
particularly thankful that he hail obtained
the money frnm Latterday Instead of being
compelled to apply to his father for it.
This was the pni-jagc which Inuircssed him:
"I am writing to you, dear Tom. to ask
you to be as careful as you possibly can
Just now about your expenses nt Oxford.
Tour father has Just met with somo fear
fully heavy losses, owing to the failure of
an Australian bsnk. In which the greater
part of his private fortune was invested.
And.nlthongli be has jiot told me so, I bflve
reason to believe, that be is actually short
of money to meet his more pressing liabili
ties." "By Jove!" said he to himself, after
some reflection. "I know what HI do.
I'll keep back $500 of Latterday's $2,500

When he came out he found a I litis
