The mounting sea of passion swept

She gazed at him, scarcely breathing.

out of him, just enough to place him
on u secure footing among those of
the younger set where Ituthven. as
hack cotillon lender, was regarded by
the young with wide eyed awe.
Why Neergatd, who had forced him
self Into the Blowltha, ever came to
commit so gross a blunder as to dra
goon or even permit the club to ac
quire the nereuge, the exploiting of
which had threatened their existence,
Is not very clear.
Already the familiarity of bis ap
pearance and his name seemed to
sanction his presence. Two minor
clubs, hut good ones In need of dues
had strained at this social camel and
swallowed him. Ciud rooms welcomed
him not the rooms once Hung open
contemptuously for his plucking, but
rooms whero piny was fiercer and
where those who faced him expected
battle to the limit.
And they got it, for ho no longer
felt obliged to lose. And that again
was a mistake. Ho could not yet af
ford to win.
George l'ane, unpleasantly involved
In Block Copper, angry, hut not very
much frightened, .turned lu casual good
faith to Neergard to ease matters un
til he could cover. And Neergatd
locked him In the tighter and shoul
dered his way through Rosamund's
drawing room to the sill of Sanxon
Orchil's outer office, Heading brutally
on Harmon's holi.

That he had unwittingly and prema

on which he had not counted and of
which he had no definite knowledge
waH revealed to Neergard when ho de
sired Rosamund to obtain for him on
Invitation to the Orchils' hall.
It appeared that she could not do no
that even the threatened tendency of
Block Copper could not sharpen her
wits to dovlso a way for him. Very
Innocently she told him thnt Jack

ought to bo easy enough to obtain lu
spite of the strangely forgetful Or

Orchil as tho most silltahle silent part

unconcerned that rumor wns already

pose of getting rid of Gerald and of
giving deserving, aristocracy a fook In

He hud come on various occasions
close to the MniuHed skirts of this
young glrl-not jet, however, in her
own house. Rut Srnxon Orchil had
recently conde" -ended to turn around
In his office chair and leave his amus
ing railroad combinations long enough
to divide with Neergard a quarter of
n million copper (notlts, and there was
another turn to be epected when
Neergard gave the word.
Therefore .It puyzled nnd confused
Neergard to be overlooked" where the
gay world had been summoned with
an accompanj lug blast from the pub
lic press; tlierefoie hu had gone to
Rosamund with b curtest of hints
that hu wou'd like to have u card to
the Orchil affair.
"TJioro Is no use In speaking to
George," she said, shaking her bead,
"Try It," returned Neergard, with a
bint of n snarl. And lie took his leave
and his hat fiom tho man in waiting,

with his short account. No dobt he'd

As his cab drove urcto tho Intricate

out from the curb, nnd he caught sight
of Pun x on Orchil and Phoenix Mottly

flush darkened. He got out of his cab
and, bidding the man wait, rang at the
house of Ituthven.

silk sashed In with tlexlblo silver,
stood with tils back to the door as
Neergard was nnnounced, and even
nfler he was announicd Ituthven took
his thro to turn and stare nnd nod
with n deliberate negligence that ac
cented the affront.
Neergard sat down. Ruthven gaml
out of the window, then, soft thumbs
hooked In his sash, turned leisurely In
Impudent Intel rogation. '
"What Is the matter wlth'you?" ask
ed Neergard. "I see there's some trou
ble somewhere. What Is it? What's
the matter with Orchil nnd that hatch
et faced beagle pup, Mottly? Is there
anything the matter, Jack?"
"Nothing important," raid Ruthvcn,
with an Intonation which troubled
Neergard. "Did you come here to
ah ask anything of me? Very glad
to do anything, I'.m sure."
"Are you? Well, then, I want a card
to the Orchils'."
"You mean you won't?"
"Well, If you really Insist, tbey ah
don't want yon, Neergaul."
"Who why how do you happen to

The President on His Judicial Ex
perience. I believe It is true that I am the
only successful candidate for
President who ever had extended
judicial experience. Mr. Van Burcn
bad been a surrogate or probate ludge
early in his career, and Andrew Jacic
eon, I believe, did serve as a judge of
the Supreme Court ol North Carolina,
but it was a very unimportant part of
his life, and his service did not bring
into the Issues of his campaigns any
discussion of bis work as a judge.
Judge Parker, so far as I know, Is
the only other candidate who bad been
for any number of years on the Bench;
and while tnerc was some reference
in the campaign to bis judicial opin
ions, tbey did not Involve any issue
made; In the platform, and were not
given special prominence on tbe stump
or in political editorials.
In 1800 the judgment of the Supreme
Court in the Income tax case was
made a subject of heated discussion,
and suggestions that the court might
be increased if one part.y was success
ful, so long as to bring about a rever
sal of tbe decision, were not wanting.
Still, I think It may be truly said that
in no campaign since the beginning
of the government has there been
directly involved as an issue a ques
tion considered and decided by one of
thcPrcsldentialcandidatcBas a judge.
There is not a 'port in Europe, and
few, if any, In tbe world, where the
matter of tides Is of no consequence.
