"Well, boys;" spoke Stephen Dale in
L brisk hearty wa', "here we all are

His three elder sons, Henry, Claud

a half pleased int-est.
The four sons :.- at a table facing

"I have brought you all together,"

amily squabble over it. I'm going to
livide it up. Here. Now. Fairly."
Claud, the lawyer, who had changed
is name to Claudius, because he
ancied it sounded more classidal,
?ricked up his ears and looked serious.
"I'll tell you at the start," pursued
the indulgent father, "that whoever
takes Idlewild .here, the family home,
will be the wise fellow in the end.
"You can have your choice, Claud,

'And you, Monty?"

"And you, Hank?"
"I am devoted to club life, In debt

Cather," he said, "so % fancy the ready
money would suit me best."
"Of course I'll take the old home, if
['m lucky enough to deserve it," spoke
bluff honest Jack. -
Stephen Dale darted a grateful, af
ectionate glance at his youngest and
avorite son. He drew out ths three
hecks and passed them around.
"One word more," he spoke, as
'heir recipients arose to get them
ashed' as quickly as possible.
'There's something else. See here,

there's nothing so steadies a y-ung
man as getting married. Now then,

Each one of the three knew whom
he meant-Miss Dalia Bliss, not a

[t was strange, but each one of the
trio departed determined to call upon
the young lady in questiox and see
Eow the land lay.
Two mornings later Claud met Hen

greatly interested in his long talk
about the law.
Then Monty in undress military uni
