Mr. John- Clifford looked over
the walnut and plate-glass railing
around-his 'office' in the corner of
the counting-room of the daily
and weekly Berald, just as a sweet,
ringing laugh from the composing
room opposite came to his ears.
'It's Lesley Lord-that is,' Pe

besaw the look of inquiry on Mr.
Clifford's face. 'As pretty a girl

Mr.-Clifford looked through the
open door-he was the new book

And Lesley sent him one look,
perfectly savage with anger.
An hour later, in the midst of a
driving rain-storm, Mr. Clifford
stepped out of the tram-car in a
pretty, lonely suburb of the city, to
which be was an entire stranger
and after looking about him for
several minutes, sans umbrella or
overshoes, lie began dimly to re- 1

broiled the ham.
'You won't mind sitting in the
fire-light a minute or two, I
know. We're poor folks, and

And a second af:er the lamp
bad gone, and the savory odor of
the broiling ham floated into his

and somebody came in, bringing a

In a brief space of time the trunk and

about he believed it used to be used
