said John Isbltter, the head of
the banking house of lablster

and turned In the direction of the closet
In which he kept his hat and walking

Tho speaker was a man of about sixty
years of age. Ills square face was al
most as white aa the "mutton-chop"
whiskers he wore. He walked unstead

Rlgdale, a tall stoop-shoulderctl,
white-haired man, was the cashier of
the firm. Today he was almost aa ag
itated as his employer,
"I hope I do hope, sir, that things
aren't really as bad as they look Ito

us three days more, we'll weather the
storm I know we will, sir. -We've
accommodated them In the past. Sure

Isblster shook his head.
"Tomorrow will tell, Rlgdale," he
replied. "Wo shall see everything more
clearlr tomorrow." . -
Rlgdale hurried to the closet and,
taking out Isblster's hat and walking
tick gave them to' his employer.
','We will hope for the best, sir," he
said, with a pitiful attempt at cherrl
"That's tho least and tha most we
can do, Rlgdale," said tho other, .with
Isblster was about to put his hand
on the knob when the door opened with
a Jerk and a stalwart-looking man of
about twenty-seven years of age con
fronted him. I
The visitor was a llttlo above the
medium hctitlit. He was dressed In a
suit of dust-llecked bluo serge. A white
straw hat, with 'a blue band, was drawn
well down on his forehead. Beneath
this his gray eyes were agleam with
anger, and there was a hard expres
sion on hla dark, clean-shaven face.
An exclamation of surprlce fell from
Isblster's lips, and both he and Rlgdale
Involuntarily retreated a step or two.
"David!" muttered Isblster, In a low,
"You can give mo two or three min

"Your uncle Is not well, Mr. Rylance,"'
protested Rlgdale nervously. "That Is
the reason he Is leaving so early. You
will excuse him now, Blr?"
"I shall not detain him long," an
swered Rylance, sharply.
"Step Into the other room, please, Rlg

He held out his hand, but the young
man appeared not to see It.
Rlgdale left the room with manifest
reluctance. Isblster removed his hat
and seated himself at his desk, with his
walking suck between His knees.
"When did you leave South Africa?"
he asked, after the door had closed be
"As soon as a letter from a friend of
Mary's Informed me of her plight."
8he Is very 111, I'm afraid.'
Rylance's face grew white with an
ger. "Very ill f" he repeated. "Why, man,
my sister your sister's child Is dying!
uno Is aying Decauxe you nave wun
held from her the funds which I left
with you for her support during my ab
sence from England I"
Isblster, his llpi compressed, sat In
silence for several moments.
"She has not suffered because of the
lack of necessaries," he replied at
"That Is false!" answered Rylance,
hotly. "Money-loving "and hard-hearted
as you have always been, you have
never lied to me, nor have I suspected
that the time would come when you
would deliberately do so."
Isblster's figure stiffened and his face
grew gray. '
"De careful, David," he said In a low,
"When I left England, rive years ago
I placed In your hands live thousand
pounds all that remained of tho for

Invest this In such a manner that the
Income would suffice to nupport my sls

"I did so. David."
"Hut I also directed that. If for any
reason this Income should he found In
sufficient for the proper maintenance of
my sister you were to draw on the
principal and promptly advise me of

"Six weeksago a letter from a wo

that my sister had fallen a victim to
consumption; that she was not receiv

untesa she were taken to a more fav

six months. I came here as quickly as
possible, and found that the situation
was all that the letter had represented
It to be. MY sister has been receiving
from you a puirui two pounos a ween:

THE TIDES' DAILY SERIAL
"For only a few minutes. She was
too weak too overcome by my unex
pected return to discuss the situation,
and I made no attempt to tax her
strength. I found her, however, only a
shadow of her former self, and In lodg
ing that are unworthy of her. I learned
that her physician la a young, Incom
nfnt fellow: and that, owing to hel
lack of funds, he visits her, only once
a week, whereas, she should be attend
ed dally by aa competent a medical man
as there Is In the town."
"I did not know that the' situation
was so bad as that," Isblster faltered.
"Mary has asked for nothing more than
the two pounds I have sent each week."
"But"- A ,
"A moment, please. Let me go on.
There Is an Incident In .your sister's life
which has not been brought to your
attention. Two years ago she became
a wife. A year late"
"A wife!" gasped Rylance, as he
gazed at Isblster with widened eyes.
"A year later she became a mother,"
Isblster went on. "The child died; and
Mary's health became so Impaired that
consumption found her an easy victim."
"Whom did she marry?" asked Ry
"Tom Rldgeley, son of Samuel Ridge

"Tom Rldgeley!" exclaimed Rylance,

"Why did you not write and let me
know of this?"
"'It was not until a couple of months
ago that I learned that she had taken
such a step. The ceremony was per
formed In Parts, and wss kept secret,
ln accordance with the wishes of Rldge
ley, who feared thnt the marriage would
excite, his father's anger."
"Dut I saw by one of the English
papers, which reached me In Africa,
that his father died several months
ago. Do you mean to tell me that the
marriage Is still unannounced that
Rldgeley has not acknowledged her?"
"Tom Rldgeley Is not the sort of man
to love, honor, and cherish an Invalid
wife. To be perfectly frank with vou.
his affections have been transferred to
another young woman, who may one
day he Mrs. Rldgeley."
With a muttered oath on his lips,
"Is Rldgeley In town now?" he asked.
"I believe so," answered Isblster.
"I'll find him, then," said Rylance
grimly, as he started toward tho door.
Suddenly he stopped and turned.
"Uncle, I've come back broke," ha
went on. "I must draw on you for
some of my money a hundred pounds
today, and perhaps more tomorrow. I
will drop ln for a statement of my ac
count witn you in mo morning.
There was a pause; then Isblster aald:
"I will let you have the hundred when
I kIvo you the statement."
"Ilut I mUBt hnvo the money this
afternoon. I have a great deal to do
tonight, and "
"You have left the army?"'
There was another pause.
