CHAPTER SIX.
The SUb Of Conicitnce.
OP all the remarkable things that
had happened ta Oration with
in the eventful day or twe, the
oddest. It seemed to him, was
the opportune appearance ot his cblef
clerk, Jennlson.
- That he should have, oovered the hun
dreds of "miles between KenyonvUle and
Chicago, that he should have come so
accurately to the very, spot Where Oraf.
ton was In trouble, was little short of
miraculous. The man, saved by so bare
a margin from actual murder, leaned
against the wall and stared stupidly at
his confidential assistant.
'The officers were hurrying about:
lights appeared here and there In the
gloomy place until one coutd discern
without difficulty the whole squalid
scans. Jennlson stared up at Oration
with a strange sort ot dumb agony.
Then the spell broko as the policemen
gathered again and talked quickly
amonr themselves. Jennlson leaped up
the stairway and seised his employer's
band In cold fingers.
"Thank Ood, slrT" he mumbled. "OhI
thank Ood, Mr. Oration I"
Orafton shook himself together.
"I'm Inclined to think that the thanks
ars partly yours.' Jennlson," he said.
"How under the sun did jou know
what brought you here to tho very
place, at tbo very UmoT" .
"That's what I've come to tell that
and more, and I shall have to tell It
quickly, sir. Where can we go In this
place to talkT"
"I well, I don't know. They have a
very line dressing room. It I remember
correctly. Perhaps It's safe there now."
"It's safe anywhere now," the rounds
man Interposed. "They've left, even to
the owner of the Joint."
"Then we'll And It."
Orafton passed Into the bar. Jennlson
at his heels, and In a moment or two
had located the scene of his own dis
aster. With a lone sigh of.rellet he set
tled beside one of the unappetising ta
bles and stretched himself. In all his
life he had never Imagined such dell
clous relaxation possible. Business
troubles he had passed through and
troubles of other kinds, sickness and
personal sorrows; but this, a reprieve
from death, was different from all.
And Jennlson was the responsible
party. He glanced across .at the chief
clerk with more gratitude In his eyes
than words could express. The secre
tary flushed before the case and his
mouth worked convulsively for a
minute.
Then, to Grafton's amasement. Jennl
s6n's head sank to his folded arms and
he sobbed violently.
J'But, my dear fellow!"
"Just a moment, sir I can't help It,"
camo thickly.
nut. Jnnnlson '
"Mr. Orafton!" The other looked up
miserably. "Don't try to comfort me.
II Isn't the nervous strain that set
me off. you know. It's something a
great deal worse."
"Worse. JennlsonT"
"Innnltelv." You vou'le trusted me.

"Yftii brought ma out of a ehean.
hopeless, futurcless position and worked

charge of matters Involving thousands
and hundreds of thousands, and you
trusted me with them all I"
"Inaeea, I ain. I '
"JumI & minute more. sir. I've come
to tell you how I have repaid all your
kindness. Mr. Orafton, 1 stole those
Colson papers!
"You you did steal tlirmt" Orafton
sat back, literally horrified. Despite
the episode ot the envelope, his belief
In Jennlson's honesty had hardly been
shaken. "You"
"Yes, I stole them, sir night before
last." Jennlson straightened up and
brushed back his damp hair. I'll give
you the whole story as quickly and as
briefly as 1 can, Mr. Grafton, and then
wo shall have to act."
Orafton watched him wonderttigly,
Jennlson, taking breath, Klauced at
his watch, and then spoke quickly:
"I may as well begin nt the beginning,
Mr. Graf ton you'll understand better.
This whole KenyonvUle traction busi
ness has been one mass or gran from
end to end!"
"Graft!"
"Nothing else In the world, sir. The
full details I can't tell, for I don't know
them, but I have a very fair Idea ot
how matters have been going. Colson,
I think, went Into the business origi
nally for what he could make out of It,
legitimately or otnerwise. He nas a
criminal record I"
"Colson has?"
"Yes. It's a long way hack, snd I
believe that he's been making more or
lees ot an Honest llvlnir for rears: but I
suppose this was too much for him. At
any rate, Mr. Orafton. that la the fact.
well, ana from what I have learned,
Colson has been making a vSry good
thing all through the business on con
tracts and rake-offs and so en. He
vtas Involved In some of It with Brady,
In a very quiet fashion, and after a
time they got to talking over possi
bilities. How .long they discussed the
matter I cannot say, cither; but be
tween them they shsped a plan the
plan that has been worked out."
"To steal the papers?"
Yes."
Orafton shook his head.
"So Brady was- In It as well! I'm
afraid my faith In human nature has
been misplaced. Go on."
"They did not know how to go about
It. The notes and the bonds and all
were, of course. In the safe deposit
vaults at the bank, and, consequently,
where thev never could be reached, jt
,was a week or so ago that Brady took
me aside one day, when I went to his
office, and broached the subject.
"I'm not .saying it .to excuse myself,
Mr. Orafton, for nothing can do that,'1
said Jennlson; "but I did refuse the
offer ho made at the time and an
nounced -my -intention of revealing the
plot to you.
"Brady was furious. He wouldn't let
me out of the office Indeed, I have
sometimes' donbted If I was not in
serious danger, that day. He promised
to make KenyonvUle too hot to hold
me If I told you. On the other hand,
he promised me a large sum If I would
hflo b'm and Colson."
"How much?" said Orafton, angrily.
Jennlson avoided hi") gaxe.
"It was 1100.000. sir."
"And I've trusted you with more thn
that-fool that I was!"
"You can't make me se the matter
In any worse light than I see It now."
Lad. Jennlson,, wretchedly, "r under
stand wnai a comcmpiiDie cur I am,
Mr. Orafton, and Tm dolnir what little
I can td atone for It."
"Well, we compromised upon my
?romlso not to mention the affair, and
left. ,1 don't know how I faced juu
for a week, every day, with ' that On
my mind. However, day before yester
day BraJy was waiting for me at noon
when I went to lunch. He knew that
the notes were In our office, tnd he
knew that I wan the person most likely
to see them. He renewed his offer to
roe to steal them and hand them over
to him and Colson. That was all he
asked, and he doubled his original price
for the miserable work. When I re.
fused, be doubled nls threats! He
scared me. Mr. Orafton!"
Grafton's tight, shut lips, offered no
comment . ...
"In the end I accepted, air. At least,
we left It that If the notes could be
had without breaking Into anything, I
nas to take them. Then you wjnt
sway that night and left -ihem lying
rnusrely on the front of your open
desk I"
"Yes. that was an absurd trick, III
ndmlt." , .
"Up tn the moment you left, sir. I
had no Intention ef complying. I sup-

uosed, of course, that you would at

safo,-mit .when'. I. saw Ahem' there the
temptation was too much, somehow.
Even then -I, conquered lt and left In
a hufrybefOro'lfcoUId'return. -
"But all the evening the Idea haunted
me I raa s- well be honest and I
thought what I could do with 200,OOU cf
my own. I-thought how easy It would
be to go away when tho first excltcmont
had calmed down and live the rest ot
my life as I pleased. Up to 11 o'clock,
though, I crusbod It back; but then the
temptation got the better ot me.
"I went back to the- building. By
chance, Parker was In the basement. I
managed to sneak In and up by the
stairs.' I found the naoera. and was

For a moment 7 felt panic-stricken.
Thcn'the'lhsptratlon came. I seised one
of your envelopes, .thrust In the notes,
directed it to Brady dropped It In the
chute and darted back Into the offices.
The fire escape ladders, 1 found, had
been' taken away. I huddled Into the
corner, and waited for you to find me.
You didn't." , ,.
Orafton nodded and smiled tartly.
"Then you went awav and I climbed
back and turned on the lights for a
moment to see It there were any signs
of my detection. Tho desk was closed:
I turned out the lights and hurried out
by way of the elevator."
"So It was you, after nil, Jennlson T"
"Yes. The rest of that night's do
ings I have heard, of course, from
Brady. He had not expected the docu
ments to come In that way, nor at that
time. Hence, to keep up the appear
ance of perfect friendliness, he was
wllllns to help you. He opened tho
box. saw the envelope with my hand
writing, and you know the rest."
"I do. indeed. It was Brady whom
we chased, then?"
"Yea; he fearod that you might be
able to get the box open somehow, and
he returned twice In his effort to un
lock the thing. The last time he drop
ped the key.
"And Colsonf
"Brady saw him some time after he
left yuif, .told him that the documents
were probably In their hands, and had
him leave. It was Brady's Idea that
he might persuade you to stay her;
for n day or two, but Colson doubted
It. Then they decided on the cheme
of drugging you, and Colson knew
this den of old. That Is tho whole
"And a very choice story It Is," said
Grafton, bitterly, "The honest politi
cian, the great and good and upright
business man. and the trusted confi
dential clerk!" ...... ...
"I was the worst of the lot, said
Jennlson. "I'm dolns: what I can to
make amends now."
Orafton looked at him more kindly.
"I understand that. Jennlson. "Now
that you've finished with the past, go
on to the gang's present or future-
plans."
"After you had gone yesterday, sir,
the thing hit me harder than ever. It
tortured my very life out I couldn't
rest or eat or think of anything save
what an unmitigated scoundret i had
been. Colson reached town again this
momma ana we neara inai you na

glad to say. I ran for the depot, got
here as quickly as possible, sought lh

"Kh? No. Who is her

At all events, he had been somewhere
In KenyonvUle for nearly a week!"
"Awaiting tne rouDeryt
"Yes. The rest, as I know now. has

his reputation, has arranged for some

With the notes In hand. Carvel will
forge your signature wherever neces
sary, and the loans will go through
within two hours after noon tomorrow!"
"Oood Lord!" exclaimed Grafton.
"The thing seems to bo worked out In
detail." . , . .
"Not a thing has been neglected, sir.
They reckon on leaving town by 3
o'clock tomorrow with some three mil
lion dollars among them."
Orafton sat back agape. The thor
oughness of the whole plot, and the
revelation ot the true characters of the
men In whom he and many others had
had such Implicit confidence, dum
foundod him. ......
"Jennlson," he sold slowly, "you havs
been well, perhaps no more than a
very weak fool. You have coma within
an ace of ruining me, and you've de
stroyed my faith In mankind. But you
have made all the restitution possible,
and I thank you sincerely'
