When we are dead, when you and 1 are
Have rent and tossed aside each earthly
And wiped the grave-dust from our won
And stand together, fronting the sunrise.
I think that we sha:l know each other
Puzzle and pain will lie behind us then;
All will be known and all will be for
We shall be glad of every hardness past;
Ard not one earthly shadow shall be cast
To dim the brightness of the bright new
And I shall know, and you as well as I,
What was the nindering th ng our whole
Which kept me always shy, constrained,
Why 1, to whom you were the first and
Could never, never be my best with you.
Why, loving you as dearl3 as I did,
And prizing you above all earthly good.
I yet was cold and dull when you were by,
.And faltered in my speech, or shunned
Unable quite to say the thing I would;
.1y dear Love, when I forward look and
Of all these baffling barriers swept away,
Against which 1 have beat so long and
Of all the puzzles of the past explained,
I almost wish we hoth could die to-day.
A STOBT OF
THOMAS P. MONFORT.
GREEN MAKES AYOTnER LOA.
After a short delay John Green's turn
came and he was ushered into Mr. Mills'
private office. Harry Pearson was
there, and he received Green with a
welcoming smile as he rose and said:
"Mr. Green, I am sorry you have been
delayed so long, but it could not be
helped. I pleaded with my friend Mills
to make an exception of your case, on
account of your sick wife, and bring
you in before your turn, but Mr. Mills
is very conscientious and systematic in
his business affairs, and he refused to
do it. Said perhaps some of the others
were in as close places as you were, etc.
However, now that you are here, I hope
Mr. Mills will make as much haste as
possible and let you go."
John murmured his thanks for all
this interest on the part of Pearson,
then turning to Mills said:
"I suppose you are aware of the ob
ject of my visit?"
'Certainly," said Mills. "You want
money, and the first thing to do is to
list the property you propose to give as
security. Just call over the articles
1while I note them down."
John named over the articles to
gether with a description of each one,
including his two horses, the harness,
wagon, plows and other farm property.
Now," asked Mills when the list
was complete, "how much money do
you expect to get on these?"
"I haven't made up my mind to any
particular sum" said John. "I only
know that I have given you in every
cent of three hundred dollars' worth
"Three hundred," repeated Mills.
"Could you sell it for that amount?"
"Not I suppose I could not under
peetcircumstances," John admitted.
"No, you could not. But could you
sell it for two hundred dollars?"
"Not at present."
"No, nor you couldn't sell it for one
hundred, could you9"
"I expect not."
"I don't know. Perhaps I couldn't.
But remember that is no criterion of
or wh. Nothing sells now but food."
"But it is a eriterion of worth, Mr.
Green," Mills corrected. "It is a crite
rion of value because a thing is only
Kwot what it wvill sell for. We govern
our loans by what the property would
fetch if it was sold to-day, and not what
it might be worth if times were good
and money plenty. Ordinarily your
things might sell for three hundred dol
lars. They might have been worth that
:last year or they may be worth it next
year, but that has nothing to do with
the present time. We're dealing with
the present, and P'll make you a loan on
the present value of your property. I'll
advance twenty-five dollars on it."
*"Great heavens!" cried Jolhn. "Only
"Only twenty-five dollars." Mills re
-peated. "I wouldn't do that if your
friend and my friend. Mr. Pearson,
hadn't interceded in your behalf. I
would rather not take the business at
all, and but for him I wouldn't offer
to advance more than ten dollars. But
if you want to take twenty-five you can
have it. Please decide quickly, though,
for my time is precious, and others are
"I can't accept so small an amount,"
*John replied, promptly. "I can do
better. I will let it go at fifty, but no
"Then our business is at an end," said
Mills,.as he arose and started toward
the door. --
"Hold on, Mills," Pearson called. "I
want to speak with you a moment."
Mills and Pearson withdrew to the
opposite side' of the room and talked for
some time in iowv tonesn. Jlohn did not
hear a'word that passed between them,
but he felt assured that Pearson was
arguing for him, and when at last they
came back and sat do wn he was assured
of this, for 31ills said at once:
"Mr. Green, I am going to make an
exception of your case.anid advance you
fity dollars. I wvouldn't do it for an
other man on earth, and I ought not do
it for you. It is taking a great iisk,
and besides it is setting a had prcedent.
However, Mr. Pearson says your wife
is in a bud way. and he has pleadled
with me for her sake to sho0w a liberal
spirit.and against moy ju:daent Pve eon
*sented for once to mingle charity with
business. I mus;t ask von to keep this
transaction quiet, at least4 the amount
of the loan must re'main a secret."
John readily consented to this small
request, and Miils proceeded to make
out the patpers, anid a few minuites later
John Green emnergred from the private
office 'with fifty dollars in his pocket.
Fifty dollar's didi I say
Yes, fifty dollars. less M ills' co:nmils

It was a fortunate thing for the poor
settlers that Milis made short time
loans only. That feature was the only
redeeming one in his systemn.
When John left the ollice P'earson fol
lowe-d him, and the ho.nest, trustful
farmer embraced the opportunity t<
thank Hiarry again for his interest anc
"It's all right. Mr Green." Pearsor
said, "and you owe me nothing. The

"-No. I ought to let Scraggs know
that I have seured the money so that
he need not put himself to the trouble
of raising it for me. I will go to his
office first and then be off for home."
This arrangement did not suit Pear
son, as was plainly evident from the
frown that came to his face. Yet he
dared not openly oppose it lest he e.v
cite his victim's suspicions. It was nec
essary to the succcess of his plans that
Green be kept away from Scraggs, and
he resolved that he should be if possi
ble, and if a meeting must take place
between the men he would manage to
be present to hold Scraggs in check.
"Curse Scraggs, anyhow," he mused.
"The old fool has got his head set
against me, and he won't hesitate to,
take any step to thwart my schemes. I
wvish he'~d never got into the secret of
my intentions relative to Louise Green.
EIle threatened to blow on me once, and
it will be just like him to do it. But,
pshaw, what need I fear from that!,

don't he take my word for everything?'

Then aloud Pearson said:

"Thanks," said Johli, "but I think I
had better go myself. I owe it to
Scraggs after his offer."
"Very well then,"' replied Pearson,
seeing that it would be useless to object,
",we will go up together."
So the two men walked away in the
direction of Scraggs' office and in due
time arrived there to find Seraggs
"Ile has gone out in the country,";
Peerson remarked, glaneing at a card
that lay on the desk, "and there is no

John looked at Scraggs in a dazed
way for some time, evidently halting
between two opinions or else mixed up
in a medler of ideas. Scraggs' manner
and delivery were so earnest that it was
hard to believe him insincere, but on
the other iand it was equally hard to
think of Pearson as an unprincipled
libertine after all his unostentatious
kindness. Another man might have

Serag;; for the m~~loent faile.1 to re
call Ulatehford's name, and he little
dreamed how much he missed in dloing
so, for had he known the relation tha
existed between the Greens and Il iram
Blatchford, and had Green known the
identity of Pearson, as the mention of
Blatchford's name would have led to, a
world of bodily and mental suffering
would have been spared the poor, un
But as it was they parted so, John
going on homeward in a state of great
mental perturbation, while Seraggs
drove toward Magic City, resolving in
his mind various schemes for thwarting
Harry Pearson's nefarious plans.
"Green is such a confiding, hones
soul," lie mused, "that Pearson wil
have no difficulty in coming over bin
with those suave manners of his. If he
had a little knowledge of humanity
and wasn't such a trustful fool, I
might be able to do something for him,
but as it is I have little hope. Some
people are the blamedest fools in the
world, and John Green's one of 'em--"
here Scraggs hit his horse a vicious
rap to alleviate his feelings of disgust,
and went on: "He's allowed Pearson
to bamboozle him into going to Mills,
and fool-like, he thinks Pearson ha
done him a great favor. I don't se
why in the devil some people are al
ways so anxious 20 lick the dust from
the feet of rascals," and Scragg
brought his horse another cut. "Now
I've got to get Green out of this
srape," he continued, "if it can be
done. I've got to buy that note from
Mills, if he'll sell it."
THE SBRPEnsT AN(D HIs AGMT.
The reader may be inclined to think
it a little strange that Scraggs should
manifest such decided interest in a mat
ter that did not at all affect him. But,
as has been said, Seraggs was a man of
heart, and he was a great friend of vir
tue. Besides, he was a man of strong
impulses, and his likes and dislikes
were extremely pronounced. From the
moment lie came to know Iharry Pear
son in his true characterhe had disliked
him, and the instant he became cogni
zant of Pearson's intentions relative to
Louise Green, he resolved to thwart
them if possible. And it may be added
that Scraggs was a man who, once hav
ing formed a purpose, never abandoned
it until he had reached the end.
Thus may the interest of Scraggs in
mis affair of Green's be accounted for
to the satisfaction, no doubt, of all.
It was late when Scraggs arrived
home, and it was impossible for him to
do aughit that day, but at an early hour
the next morning he repaired to Mills'
office. None of the great army of loan
seekers who visited Mills' office every
day had made their appearance yet, and
Scraggs found that worthy alone, and
in a very few words stated tt~e object ol
his visit, which was to purchase John
"I am sorry, Mr. Seraggs," Mills re'
plied promptly, "but I cannot ny
modate you with the note."
"Why not?" Scraggs asked.
"Because I loan money as a business,
and if there is a profit in it I want it."
"Certainly, Mr. Mills. I did not ex
pect you to sell the note -at its fact
"You didn't? Then you are willing
to pay a premium?"
"I am. or I should never have come
hee. W mone ender o not d
things for the Iun of it."
"That's very true, and for that rea
son I am at a loss to understand why
you should be willing to buy Green's
note at a premium. I let him have
twice as much on his property as I
would inder ordinary circumstances."
"That has nothing to do with the
matter at all. Please state what
amount will buy the note."
Mills looked at Scraggs rather curi
onsly fir an instant, then broke into a
"To b-e plain with you, Mr. Scraggs,"
he said. "and to bring the affair to a
point at once, I must say that the note
is not for sale."
"At no price
"At no pric'.
"a I ask your purpose in holding
it when you can make a good profit by
letting i t go"
"Yes. you may ask, Mr. Seraggs, but
I am not compelled to answer you."
For n moment Seraggs was clearly
"stump.-d." to us. an expressive slang
term. Tihe note was evidently beyond
his ren . anl it seemed ueless to try
furthoi' to !.t it. Yet.he did not like
to a 1b)in the effort so soon. but how
to pro --,i fither he lid not know.

where 1-e found Pearson in waiting for

coldly. "since Green himself delivered

h)y these vrords, but in a moment lie
had rec. vered his equanimity and said
"Yon met him on the way home, I
--Yes. and he told me Mills had fur
nished him the money."
"That was the message he left with
For a little while neither of the men
spoke, and Pearson began to hope that
the subject was dropped. But in this
he w-a* disappointed, for directly
Seraggs resumed it by saying:
"You helped Green about getting
that loan, Pearson, and I know what
your object was in so doing."
"Perhaps you do, Scraggs," Pearson
replied unconcernedly, "but for fear
you don't, I'll tell you. My objcct was
to render the man a little service."
"Yes, to render him a little service;
and for what?"
"For his good, of course. So you
think all mankind are like yourself,
willing to do a fellow creature a favor
only when it brings two dollars to your
pocket to every one it brings him?"
"Pearson," said Seraggs severely, "it
is useless to talk nonsense to me. I
know you, and I understand your heart.
You told me once, before you returned
east. what your intentions were toward
Green's girl, and I understand that your
intentions are the same yet. You are
striving to get Green in your power and
use him as a lever in your efforts with
the girl. That was your purpose in
taking him to Mills to get his money,
and you are the man who holds that
"You are making rather reckless asser
tions, Seraggs; but say they are correct,
and then what?"
"Whyonlythis, you must give the

"Y s. you mwat."
"Perhaps I must, but I fail to see

with your intentions towaE1 that girl,
and I promise you that Blatchford
shall be informed of it without delay."
"Bslatchford! What does he care?
Do you .suppose he'd bother his head
about a daughter of one of these poor
settlers whom he owns body and soul!
Pshaw, he don't care what they do, or
what becomes of them, so long as he
has their mortgages. Write to Blatch
ford, if you want to, and see what good
it will do you."
As Pearson delivered himself of these
words he kept a close watch on Scraggs'
features, and though he spoke confi
dently and with the utmost indiffer
ence, he was greatly disturbed.
He was in constant ' dread lest
something should transpire to re
veal to Scraggs the relation existing
between Blatchford and the Greens.
He became satisfied on the present oc
casion, however, that Scraggs hand as
yet received no intimation or thc truth,
and he breathed easier. But Scraggs'
threat to write to lilatchford disturbed
himi. lie k'.ew that it was not -idly
tu- e, and lie also knew that if he did
write the whole truth would come out,
andl. iicartles as old Blatehford was, it
was hardly possible that he would sit
quietly with folded hands and permit
his grauddarghter's ruin.
Such thoughts as these occupied Pear
son's miud, and he saw the necessity of
conciliating the irate agent.
".\r. Scraggs," he said, "what's the
snse' of you and I going on like a cou
ple oif fools. I dlon't care anything for
Gr.en's girl. and have no designs upon
her. I 'lid make a fool assertion a year
or so sinc~e to the effect that I had, but
I did not mean it."
'Do yiou swear," said Scraggs, "that
you are~ .'peaking the truth?"
"Why, yes. if you wish it," Pearson
"Tihi"n you will perhaps not mindlet
ting n' have Green's note."
"No. I wo uldn't, if I had it. Mills is
the mn:m for you to see on that business."
llairr e l'arson le'ft the otliee directly,
