When a man is about to entertain
a very charming girl whom he is anx
ious to impress and suddenly finds that
with the exception of a few coppers,
he has no money In his pocket, he
may surely be forgiven the use of
a few strong ejaculations. Such was
the plight of Everard Hamlyn at 10
minutes to 1 on a certain Saturday af
ternoon. He had been so absorbed in
reading the brief of an important case
which was to be heard lu the courts
on Monday that he had forgotten thc
emptiness of his pocket At 1 o'clock
Alice Valentine, un American girl with
whom he had formed a deep friene
ship, was coming to see what a bar
rister's chambers in the Temple looked
like, and she was also to bc taken out
The worst was that there were only
10 minutes to rectify the mistake. He
wrote ont a check hurriedly, and then
remembered that time would not per
mit to go to the bunk to cash lt. His
clerk was gone nud the Temple was
wrapped in Its usual Saturday after?
Without a hat he rushed over to Har
court buildings to see if his friend
Anderson was in his chambers. He
could rely upon him for a couple of
But the fates were against Hamlyn.
Anderson was out and the doors were
Realizing that there was nothing for it
but to go to the bank he hurried along
np the court into Fleet street, meaning
to hall a hansom. But as he arrived
there the clock struck 1 and he kuew
that he could not get to the bank and
back under 20 minutes. Alice would
never forgive him If he was not at hi3
rooms to receive her.
Suddenly his eye was caught ?>y thc
three brass balls hanging over a shop
almost opposite. Thc sight suggested
a new Idea to his mind, and he prompt
ly acted upon IL In another moment
he rushed across the road, and enter
ing the shop handed his S0-guinea hun
ter over the counter.
"How much?" said the clerk eyeing
the hatless and breathless Hamlyn
"?h, I only wanted a fiver," replied
. *"Have you got a card on you?" asked
the clerk, thinking he was on the tracie
of a swell mobsman.
Unversed In the ways of pawn bro le
ers, Hamlyn pulled out his case and
handed him a card.
'"All right, slr," seeing the name
and address and. noticing it corre
sponded with the Initials on the watch.
"I beg your pardon, sir." and he hastily
filled up a ticket and counted out five
pounds. "Have you a penny for thc
Hamlyn Impatiently threw down a
copper and fairly bolted out of the
shop. The people in Fleet street stared
at him with amazement and a gutter
arab with whom he had collided,
shouted, "Who are ycr sbovin of?"
as he crossed the road.
Now it happened that Alice Valen
tine was Just at that moment passing
down Fleet street on her way to the
Temple. She had arrived somewhnt
earlier than she had intended, for she
upheld the traditions of womanhood
with regard to unpunctuality.
"It would never do," she said to her
self, "to be quite punctual. He would
think I was too Impatient"
So, timing herself to arrive at the
Temple about 1.15 o'clock, she was
strolling leisurely along wheu she
caught sight of Hamlyn rushing wild
ly out of a pawnbroker's shop. For a
moment the ludicrous side of the situ
ation struck her very forcibly, and
she laughed softly to herself. But
gradually as she realized the full sig
nificance of the action, her amusement
gave place to pity.
"Poor boy." she murmured, "I had
sot the faintest idea that he was hard
np. And to think that I have let him
spend such a lot of money In taking
I must get even with him somehow."
There was a veiw tender spot in her
heart for the tall, clever young barris
ter who had shown so plainly his pref
erence for her above all other women.
Alice Valentine and her aunt Miss
Safford, were making a tour of Eu
rope, and had met Hamlyn first of all
at a hotel In Geneva. He had ren
dered them a number of civilities, and
as he happened to be doing the same
round of Switzerland as they, for a
month he was their almost dally com
panion. With the frankness of Ameri
can women, they accepted his atten
tions graciously, and. finding bim a
pleasant attendant enrolled him in
their services without further ado.
Miss Safford generally accompanied
Alice wherever she went, and showed
quite as much eagerness to "do" every
place thoroughly as her niece. It was
only on rare occasions, when the elder
ly lady was obliged to admit that she
was "too tired for anything," that
Hamlyn had a chance of taking Miss
Valentine ont alone.
The constant companionship, how
ever, had brought about the usual re
sult. Hamlyn was not an Inflammable
man. He had reached the mature age
of 30-not unsought after-without
having succumbed to feminine churms.
But there was something about the
fair American that fascinated him
In frpite of himself.
Today, as she came Into his room,
a perfect vision of freshness and love
liness In the gloomy atmosphere of
the Temple, Hamlyn was conscious of
a certain shyness and reserve in her
manner that be had not noticed before.
"I don't believe I ought to come here
by myself," she said as she closed the
door. "I wonder what Aunt Catherine
would say to it"
"You are late," said Hamlyn. "1
have been walting impatiently foryon,"
Ono thing yet there is, that none.
Hearing ere its chimes be doue,
Knows not well the sweetest ono
Henrd of mon beneath the sun,
Hoped in heaven hereafter;
Soft and strong and loud and light,
Very sound of very light.
Heard from morning's rosiest height,

Fills a child's clear laughter.

"Am I really?" replied Alice. "What
is the time, then?"
He pulled at his watch chain me
chanically, forgetful of bis escapade,
anti disclosed the bare swivel. He col
ored slightly as be realized his mis
take, and felt her eyes upon him, but
"About 20 minutes past 1, I fancy."
She was walking round the room
glancing at the ponderous-looking
books and tbe papers tied with pink
tape, getting, as she expressed It, the
"atmosphere" of the place.
"It must be just lovely to work
here," she said. "Everything seems
so old and historic. I believe I should
only have to sit here a few hours a
day and I should become a lawyer by
breathing the air."
"Which reminds me," ?aid Hamlyn,
"that I have been breathing air quite
long enough and want luncb. Where
shall we go?"
Alice Valentine hesitated.
"Look here," she said at last, Ml
want to say something to you. You
have boen taking me nbout such a lot
and I have done nothing for you. 1
feel real mean. I want you to let me
stand you a luncb today."
He shook bis bend laughingly. "You
forget," be* said, "that you are my
guest; but I want you to say where
jvqgi would like to go."
He named a well-known restaurant
in Piccadilly, where she knew the
prices were ruinous.
"No," she said, "don't let us go there.
Will you take me to one of those little
bohemian places you told me of where
you get a table d'hote lunch for ia
pence. I should love to go. It would
be a new experience.
"You look too smart," he replied,
glancing at her admiringly, "but I tell
you what I will do. We will split the
difference and go to a kind of seml
fasblouable place where you shall see
all sorts and conditions of people and
bear a band."
Once or twice during lunch, when
con versa tion dragged. Hamlyn noticea
again the thoughtful expression on
ber face. At last he took the matter
"Tell ne," he said, 4,what you ave
"I was thinking," she replied ?lowly,
"of how I could help some ?me who
bas been very good to me."
"Not a difficult matter, surely-for
"It ls very difficult," she said, "un
der the circumstances. The person I
want to help is poor and, very prou'J."
She was looking down at the table
cloth and studiously avoiding his eyes.
"Can I be of any assistance?" be
"You-why-" she laughed. "Yee,
perhaps you can. I will think about lt
and let you kuow."
There was a new sympathy In her
voice and manner, and Hamlyn felt a
mad desire to take her there and then
In bis arms and cover her face with
But there was no opportunity to tell
ber of his love. Immediately after
luncb they were obliged to burry off to ,
meet Miss Snfford at a matinee, and
Hamlyn bad no further chance of a
tete-a-tete with Alice, but he arranged
satisfactorily a meeting for Monday
afternoon, when be determined to put
bis fate to the test.
"You will not forget," be said at part
ing, "to let me help you in the matter
"No," she replied with a singular look
on ber fae?. "I will not forget."
As Everard walked home be recalled
ber tones, her face, the fair, fiurhed
cheeks, sweet mouth, earnest brows
and eyes of softest fire. There was
that in ber look which sntlsded him. j
He was awakened from his reT:rle
by an urchin inquiring whnt o'clock
it was. For the second time that (lay
he mechanically tugged nt his watch
"Confound It!" he exclaimed as he
realized his loss. "I never knew tLf.t
It was such a nuisance to be without .1
watch. I must get it out first thing
on Monday morning."
The urchin grasping the situation j
ran away grinning.
On Sunday Hamlyn again bethought
himself to the watch.
"I had better study the ticket," he
said, "and see what I shall have to
He fumbled In his waistcoat pocket;
lt was not there. He tried the others
with the same result With growing
uneasiness he searched in every pocket
of the clothes he had worn on the Sat
urday, but the pawn ticket was not to

careless of me. I hope my clerk won't
On Monday morning he got up ear
lier than usual and drove down to thc
Temple in a hansom. His clerk had
already arrived. Hamlyn searched all
over the table carefully, then In all
the drawers, but could not find the
ticket Finally he summoned the
"Have you moved any papers?" he
asked rather irritably.
"No, sir. I haven't touched a thing."
"You haven't by any chance found a
ticket, I suppose?" pursued Hamlyn.
"No slr. What kind of a ticket have
"It doesn't matter," he replied impa
tiently, "it ls of no importance."
Putting on his hat Hamlyn hurried
Into Fleet street to the pawn shop.
"I want to redeem the watch I left
here on Saturday," he announced.
"Where ls your ticket sir?" said the
" I have mislaid it" replied Hamlyn,
"but lt ls all light you remember me,
I expect The watch belongs to ma
and I want lt now."
" I am very sorry, slr, but you can't
hnve lt without the ticket."

"1 will give you a form of declaration
to be made before a magistrate."
"Is there no other way?" said Ham
lyn, realizing the trouble and annoyanca
this would cause.
"No, sir," said the pawnbroker, "1
am afraid there ls not."
There was no time to waste he had
to be In court carly, as his case was
among the first on the lists. It was
no use stopping to argue the matter.
He must go before a magistrate and
sign the declaration ua soon as
possible. Returulug to his chambers,
he put on his robes and was soou lost
in contemplation of the business In
About an hour after his visit to tbc
pawnshop Alice Valentine drove up in
a cab to the same door. She had found
the pawn ticket lying on Hamlyn s
table on the Saturday afternoon and
had appropriated it, meaning to re
deem the watch and send it back to
him as soon as possible. She was
rather nervous nt going into the shop,
but she was not the kind of a girl to
allow her feelings to stand in the way
of any project she wished to carry
through; so, putting on an air of un
usual haughtiness, she entered thc little
compartment and handed In thc ticket.
"I want the watch, please," she said.
The pawnbroker's assistant looked
her up mid down carefully. When he j
had, as it were, sLed her completely,
he inquired dryly. "Where did you get
Alice flared up Indignantly. "That
ls no business of yours, tell mc what I
have to pay and give nie thc watch."
"Not so fast," said thc young man,
"you must answer one or two ques
He went away, and after a whispered
consultation returned with a gray
bearded old man, who was polite but
"I am sorry, madam, but I cannot
allow you to redeem this pledge until
you inform me how this ticket came
Into your possession."
"I found it." said Alice.
"Allow me to inform you, then," said
the pawnbroker, sternly, that you arc
committing a very grave offense. By
attempting to obtain thc watch you lay
yourself open to criminal proceedings."
"But," said Alice, "I am a friend or

"Come, como, that won't do nt all.
A gentleman who called himself Mr.
Hamlyn was here about an hour ago
, endeavoring to get the watch himself'
. "Mr. Hamlyn been herc this morn
ing!" cried Alice. She had never ex
pected that he would be able to re
deem his, watch so soon. ^
''Better send for a policeman,'*" sug-' '
gested the assistant.
"Hold your tongue," said his master.
Then, turning to Alice Valentine, he
said: "I do not wish to b2 hard upon
you. but I insist upon an explanation?
I will send over to tho address on thc
ticket and if your story is true Mr.
Hamlyn will corrobate it. Harvey,

would have died on thc spot, as Alice,
with the nlr ol' a tragedy queen, sub
mitted to the Indignity of being es
corted to thc back parlor, while Harvey
kept watch and ward over her.
A quarter of au hour later Everard
Hamlyn jumped out of a hansom and
hurried into thc shop. He wan an Im
petuous person and he had not waited
to change his robes, but had come
straight away in wig and gown from
the law courts. He was met lu thc
passage by Harvey, who had been
awaiting his arrival with keen inter
"There's a woman in here," he said,
pointing to the parlor, "who says she's
a friend of yours, and has found your
pawn ticket, but I suspect-"
"Out of the wny," cried Hamlyn,
thrusting the officious young man one
side and rushing into the room.
Alice, by all that's wonderful!" Ut
exclaimed, and then seeing that her
bosom was heaving convulsively, he
put his arm around her and Inquired
tenderly what had happened.
"They have been so rude and Insult
ing she sobbed.
Hamlyn waited for no further ex
planation, but, seizing Harvey by the
throat he shook him until the unfortu
nate youth had not a breath in lils
fiody. Then, turning to the elder man,
he cried sternly: "What do you mean
by Insulting this lady?"
"The pawnbroker, discovering his
mistake, was all apologies, but Hara
lyn's temper was still up.
Nothing could justify rudeness to a
lady, he said, and he insisted on an
abject apology from the crestfallen
Then he took Alice back to his rooms
In the Temple. When they were alone
he put his arm around her and said
"Oh, ray darling, how sweet of you
to try to get ray watch back for me.
Did you do it because you care? Tell
me darling-I love you!"
"It was very silly of me, I know,"
she said, softly and slyly, "but I
thought you were poor, and-oh-I
wanted to help you."
"I am not poor," he said, smilingly,
"at least, not very poor. I have a
thousand a year, and we might man
age on that."
"It would not have mattered," shu
whispered, If you hud been a poor
