CHAPTER IThe tlm is the late
or early '70s and the scene a steamboat
on the Mississippi river. All the types
of the psrlod are present and the float

danclns and gallantry. There are the
customary drinking and gambling also.
Virgil Drace, a young northern man, is
on his way south on a mission of revenge.
Be meets an eccentric character in the
person of one Liberty Shottie. who Is
constantly tempting the goddess of
chance. They form a singular compact.
CHAPTER II.Drace gets Ms mind off

in which he exhibits an unusual athletic
ptowess. Liberty Shottie to again un

.that nfght was as fantastic as a gyp
sy's vision. It seemed that all civillza
tfon had lifted the lids of its worm
eaten chests to array in whlmsic re
minder of Its former self. There was
etident poverty making itself neat in
old linen, and war victims proud In
threadbare coats. In rags there is his
tory, but no ancestry attached to cloth
fresh from the mill. No unfriendly
eye was supposed to look upon this
gathering, no antagonistic politics per
mitted to view It The walls were
draped in the colors of France, and
enshrined in a corner was a Confed
erate banner, its staff splintered, Its
folds darkened with sacred blood.
As Shottie no longer held the hope
of raising a speculative table-stake, he
bent himself to the less Interesting life
of the dance. But not without mis
hap!, The floor was smooth with wax
from the ends of marriage-altar can
dles- and Liberty's feet, more accus
tomed to the rough matting, and
ragged carpets of the gambling-room,
flew from under him. Catching right
and left in his fall, he came down with
a bit of lace In one hand and a comb
In the.other, while women shrieked
at the devastations he had wrought,
to screen her into a retiring-room
"That's what comes to a horse that
wanders from his stable-lot out on the
frozen pond," said Shottie as Drace
came up to laugh at him*
"You've made a rip in the skirt of
the ball sure enough," Drace replied,
taking him by the arm. And then
suddenly he halted, for he caught
eight of a girl coming toward him. A
moment before, there bad been nu
merous young women In tbe room, but
now there was only onethe barbaric
rose maid, the girl who had touched
his heart with a torch.
With her walked a tall, handsome
and well-dressed young man. Her hand
rested upon his arm, and she seemed
to listen with pleasure to his evldent
ly ardent wooing. She looked at
Drace, one glance, and then turned
her eyes back to her cavalier and
passed on. And a flame of Jealousy
was added to the turmoil that already
held possession of him.
"Who is she, Shottie?" demanded
"I don't know, but I'll find out
Lord, but she is a fetcher."
He moved aflV dodging the dancers

In a window, waiting.

"Hush, Mr. Boyce," said, the girl.
"There are people nearthis is no

The young man lowered his voice,
and Shottie could hear no more. He

"Grandma's Boy," Harold Llody^s
newest comedy in five parts, and his

Sherwood in "Life," said would win
for Lloyd a "loom and bath in the
Hall of Fame."
The story, which is by Hal Roach,
Sam Taylor and Jean Havez, has for
its theme a subject as serious as the
regeneration of a coward, but its ser
iousness adds to rather than detracts
fiom the fun.
The cast in support of Harold
Lloyd in "Grandma's Boy" presents
lildred Davis as the Gir', Anna Town,
send as the Grandmother, Charles
Stevenson as the rival, Dick Suther
