That was all he said. Just lliltik of

about love: nothing but the bare state

Introduced Ills friend George Monroe.
Monroe was not a very aristocratic
person, but had the art of making
friends. At least, he was a hall fel
low well met with everybody and
uever spoke ill of any one. He seem
ed to have a great admiration for Mr.
Perkins and told me that he was one
of the tlne-t fellows he ever met. The
result was that Howard Perkins and
George Monroe were at our house a
great deal. Mark Warren didn't seem
to fancy either of them through jeal
ousy. I supposed and came very sel
dom. One day he Joined me on the
street and said:
"I see you have two strangers com
ing to see you frequently. Don't be
so foolish us to trust either of them
without hunting up their records."
"Oh, I suppose you meau to warn

fascinating about him. Besides, he
took me out a great deal He had a
way of spending money as though It
had no value for anything except to
purchase luxuries. He proiwsed to me
and I accepted him.
One day when Mr. Monroe and

"1 would like to leave an envelope
with you containing $200 It's after
tiaiik hours and I have to go out with
Amu fellow this evening and be up till
I told him that I would keep It for
him. but would not be responsible for
it. whereupon he stepped up to the
clock and. opening a door In it. put a
roll of bills Inside, remarking that
they would be as safe there ns any
where, and no one need lie responsi
