The Invincible God
By GRACE DE PINA
(Vopyr4ght.4. :.1, by Asuctited L:emry Pr ss)
The success of Mrs. Tindall's gar
den parties lay in everyone's privi

by, Mr. Cramer was able to review.
unmolested, all the guests, from the
vantage of a secluded arbor. His
hands rested on his cane. his chin
upon his hands Restlessly his keen
brown eyes searched face after face:
but presently h:s quest seemed to
end, and rising abruptly, he sought
his hostess.
"' itll you introduce me to that girl,
over there"' he requested
Mrs. Tindall strolled with him to
where Miss Currin was serving lem
onade. "Isabel, Mr. Cramer is thirsty
-please be kind to him," she said.
Isabel stretched out her hand. The
old gentleman held it lorg enough to
call a question to her eyes.
"I asked to meet you." he explained
frankly. "You are the only one here
who might succeed. I have beet
watching them all. Will you help me?"
"Details, please," murmured Isabel.
smiling.
She liked this abrupt old man with
the kindly face. There was magnetic
appeal in his expression as he an
swered her.
"I have a son." he ebgan. "He is
very dear to me. He is ill-unhappy.
It amounts to the same thing very
often. He needs a doctor. For a
long time I have been hunting for
the right one. My search is over.
Now, I want you to help me persuade
him to take the case."
"I! What is the matter with your
son?" asked Isabel gently.
"He is withering," diagnosed Mr.
Cramer, solemnly. "Grief seldom kills,
but he is shriveling-mentally, phys
ically. worst of all, in his heart. It
frightens me. He is too young. I
disapprove of it at any age, in fact."
"Of course!" agreed Isabel vigor
ously. "But how can I help you?"
He plunged on quickly. "My son
thought he fell In love, a year or so
ago-desperately, you understand!
Happiness comes high, it seems, and
the lady decided he wasn't richl
enough. Then and there he vowed to
marry none but a wealthy girl, to
eliminate the chance of future decep
tiea. It is ruining him." He put in
simply. "He's got to be roused! You
are the doctor-it is a woman's task.;
I want you to do it." he ended bluntly.
"Roused?" repeated Isabel, curt
"Make him feel!" explained Cramer
tensely. "He's numb, prick him, for
good, or bhad; only make him feel!"
"How?' asked the girl, still cur
ous and a little bewildered.
"Oh, my dear!" deprecated the old
gentleman, yet undisturbed by her
lashing eyes. He changed his tone.
"Young lady, I am fighting for my
se's future, and his sane frame of
mind; nothing is going to stand in
my way. He's not going to dry up
into a miserable, crabby cynic, If I
can help it Somebody's got to prove
the existence of love and fhith."

"How "
"Trust me'" chuckled Cramer as
suringly. "There is a little old lady

the earth at my bidding. She is

play her part from there. We'll talk
it over with her. Come'"
The next evening Mr. Cramer fo
cused the conversation on the gar
den party. He brought in Miss Cur

"Stunning looking girll" comment

George ('ran:er looked uI curiously.
It was a new attitude on his father's
part. but he harbored no suspicions.
Nelther did it occur to him as sig
nifit a:.t that thereafter he met Isabel
r.eary everywhere he went.
Co(me and see me," said she one
evening, on parting
He went. She was popular. not
easily obtained tete-a-tte, pretty, and
rich-quite worth the effort. George
admitted. He found others ahead of
him, not once. but frequently. One
day he asked her over the telephone
if he might have that evening She
declined. He begged the next-for the
theater or anything she might prefer
She chose to have him come to her
house instead. It was then that she
first hinted, delicately, at some leg
acy-a substantial one. He gathered
that her eccentric aunt was hopelessly
ill.
At the end of a week he proposed.
She refused him. His desire grew.
At the end of a month she gave in.
In a panic, she sought Mr. Cramer, Sr.
"You must lose your legacy-not
too soon." he decided. "Your aunt
will suddenly change her mind about
endowing you. You can rely on her.
You have disagreed, about-um-ah
what have you disagreed about?"
"My choice of a husband?" suggest
ed Isabel, with a touch of humor.
Mr. Cramer shook his head. "That
might rouse 'eorge's chivalry-he
used .o have a great deal. It might
influence his actions, and that would
never do."
"Of course-not!" faltered Isabel.
Mr. Cramer searched her face.
"Bless my soul! Do you-"
"Yes," admitted Isabel, "I care."
"My dear! Then you must lose
everything-every cent you have in
the world!"
"Oh, no!" cried the girL "I'm
afraid!"
"All or nothing!" urged Cramer.
Meanwhile, George appeared satis
fled with his lot. He had kept his
word and won a rich girl. He was
proud of her looksl and she never
bored him. As the days went by
he realized her charm more and
more, and it was with ever-increasing
impatience that he counted the time
Setween visits. With Interest, obser
vation had grown keener, and one
night her mood puszled him.
"What is it'" he demanded right
away.
"Everything!"
She motioned him to keep his seat
as hoe paced in froat of him.
"So you see, I've lot everything.
I won't be worth a penny!"
He sat and stared. She watched
him. Then she took the ring from
her finger and dropped tt into his
hand. This recalled him. He tried
to replace it, perfunctorily. She
would not let him, quite andifferently.
He should have felt relieved; but why
thtis pecnlar dunes all through
him? He left her abruptly, as it run
nintalg away- Why? There was no
danger. She had shown him plainly
that she had regarded the whole it
fair as an arrangement which the
turn oft cremstances nullifed. Per
haps he wasun't rich aenough for her

ANGLING FOR A PLACE
Dalton's air of preoccupation was
not quite pleasing to the girl. He was
seated on the bank of the stream
just beneath her, selecting a fly and
whistling contentedly.
"You seem very happy," she said
at length, coldly.
"I am tolerably happy, considering
the fact that last night I was grossly
intemperate."
"Intemperate?"
"Drank too hard of the May moon

the perfun:es. and the girl, grew
hilarious and asked her to marry me
-to share my ups and downs in life.
She refused to do it. I might say it s
what I expected. You see I wasn't
sober: and then she had led me on.
yes I'm sure she led me on. Why,
she told me a lot of complimentary
things about myself. Said my money
had not spoiled me, and that I was so
easy to get along with it was just
like having nobody around. Said she
knew that the inventing and flying of
the aeroplane was a great achieve
ment for a mere millionaire to effect,
and that she felt awed in my pres
ence. When she grew solicitous for
my welfare and asked me to give up
aviation, I misconstrued her mean
ing. I guess. At any rate, I proposed
to her and she laughed at me."
"She must have possessed a strong
sense of humor."
"Undoubtedly. She told me I was
foolish to think of anything outside
my hobby, seeing it was such a nice
hobby and one I could really ride.
Oh. she was very scarcastic: She
went so far as to say that a man who
was already married to a flying ma
chine had not the right to propose.
Now what am I to do? I want her
today more than ever!"
"If you love the girl, you should re
spect her wishes sufficient to give up
risking your life, should she ask it
of you."
"I never pay any attentions to re
quests-I obey orders. If she were
my wife now she could order me to
stop taking risks."
"But you didn't ask her to be your
wife, did you? You asked her to
share your ups and downs, wasn't that
it?"
"Your sympathies seem to be alto
gether with the girl."
"And why not? Surely you are bird
enough without wanting to fly arti
ficially."
"Not even to soar to her heights?"
"Not even to soar anywhere, when
soaring means courting disaster. Will
you do something grand and splendid
for the girl-if I ask you to?"
"Yes, op condition that you in turn
will persuade the girl to do something
grand and splendid for me.
"No, I won't do that; but I'll tell
you what I will do. I'll fish against
you to see which of us does the oth
er the favor."
"Meaning that If I catch the first
fish-?"
"But you won't catch the first
fish."
"Then if you catch the first fish--'
"You give up your hobby-for the'
girl's sake."
"And if I catch the first fish you
give up the girl for my sake-very
well. Any time limit?"
"None. Finish fight."
The reels sang as the flies flut
tered across stream.
When, after a strenuous fifteen
minutes' fight, he landed the trout
and glanced trijmphantly at the girl,
it was to meet a pair of laughtes
1fillled eyes. On a rock at her feet lay
- afsh- much smaller one than his
own, but a fish nevertheless. "I g~aes
I win," she -.Ad softly.
"I congratulate you," he answered.
S"Yes, you wln: I'm ready to pay."
She laughed then, and slidling from
ithe rock, put her hands on his shoul
ders.
"If the girl had not cared, you
I know," she whispered. "she wouldn't
have asked you to give up flying,
'Harry. But I'm sure she would be
willing to share your ups and downs
now, dear, if you cared to ask her
.agai."
Then he took her In his arms.

said of Fred B:r.charm. the rich Wid
ow Binghan's son And it was often
added that Fred aas a singular fel

life. He was starter that way. b:it

leLe was sound; what he observed
he rememii-rerd Nature had given
him a bert toward mechan:cs, and
early in h:s career he had his to- 1
and his norkshop. Before he had
reached his maicrity he had invented
half a dozen thirgs 'the world want
ed. Soon after that came the down
fall.
It was discovered that the lawyer
who was managing the rich widow's
business for her had embezzled a
large sum of money-so large that
she was no longer even moderately
well off There mist be a great
coming down to make ends meet on
the small sum left. An estate all
tangled up and nrot to be settled up
for years was placed In the hands of
a law firm. and Fred Bingham went
forth to make his way almost bare
handed.
At the big machine shops of Whit
ney & Son Boston. they had need of
a handy man. and their advertisement
brought Fred Binaham as an appli
cant He modestly stated his capa
bilities in the mechanical line and
was taken on. He was pleased in a
way, and yet displeased. The elder
Mr. Whitney liked his looks and
modest demeanor and was friendly.
The son James. about twenty-two'
years old. had been taken in as part
ner and given the ofce department
to manage, because-because he was
his father's son Even the father
could furnish no better excuse, unless
it was the hope of steadying the
young man down.
When two young men meet for the
first time it depends almost on the
first glance whether they are to like
each other or not It was not necea
sary in this case that there should
be friendship between the office and
the shop. Fred Bingham would be
treated as an employe. and he would
cheerfully grant the respect due the
office, but he found within two min
utes that there would be an antag-.
onism with the son. There was
tyranny and domineering in young
Whitney's every look and attitude.
The applicant was a gentleman even
if he handled tools. He had a solid
education. He was an enthusiast in
'his work. He had a way that com
manded respect. even though it
brought antagonism with it
"That fellow needs a trimming
down .and it will be up to me to do
it." whispered young Whitney to
himself as the caller left the ofece.
"I see my finish here in a month.
if the son has his say about it," said
Syoung Blngham to himself, as he
walked away to ind a boarding
place.
Fred Bingham found a temporary
home in a suburb within stone's
throw of his employer's grand man
sion, and when he gave in his ad
dress at the ofce he was met with
the sneering remark from youag
Whitney:
"I wonder that you didn't bauy a
$20.000 residence out there and ar
range to come down to the works in
I your own auto!"
No reply was made to this. It
was sudiient to start a quarrel on,
but of what arse? Pred Blnham was
pleased to get a poeition in a big
shop where he could fairly try bhim
alf out and met the many problems
that would arue. In a fortnight the
elder Whitney was saying of him:
"I declare. James, we've got a real
giales in Blagham."
"Oh, I don't know," was the reply.
"That's because you don't go
through the shops. All the men are
Stalkha about him. He has improved
mo oft the machines so that we
Set a quarter more work out of them.
He'll save us eve times his salary
inside a year."
The son replied with a grunt of
disbelief, and there the matter
dropped.
On the third Sunday of his stay
Fred Bnlgham attended Sunday ser.
vices at a humble little chuch, ad
was ashered into a pw in which
a young lady sat alon There was
coaregaational stingi. and as they
rose she oferead him the half of her
hymn book and they an together.
If any one had asked IPred as he
walked homeward tif the rona lady,
who had been so coartees, were
handsome or homely he wouald not
have told. He would have admitted.
Showever, that her voice had charmed
him.
On the following moranl, as Fred
left his boarding house to take the
car to his work be found an auto
standing tin the streets tin a helplem
condltion. The chbaufur was under
it seurchlng for the cale, and a
young woman witth a raed look ca
her face was standia by. As red
approaebed she smiled and bowed.
A rt iftnstlnct toid him she was
the one of the pew.. With a fluashed
face, he lifted hisa ap and advanced

M:ss Gladys Humphreys was an or
than. :iving with her aunt. and ac
cour.ted one of the wea:thiest girls In
Bostn A dozen rallants. including
young Whitney. were on her list of
sul!tcrs, and gossip said that the lat
ter was the favored ,oe so far. She
and Fred R!ngham had not exchanged
names
A week after the auto incident, and
at an evening hour th!s time. Mr.
PFinham was saunter'ng about the
neighborhood s:::oking his cear The
streets were very qu:iet. but as he
passed a fine mans:cn, the front door
of which stood open. he heard a wom
an scream. In a moment he. was
through the gate and up the steps
and !n the ha!' he found twn tough
!ookinc your.g men. each having a
bhnd:e under his arm. fichting to free
themselves from the grasp of a young
wcnman.
Fred Blngham took a hand in the
game at once. and it was bad for the
sneak thieves who had entered the
house during the dinner hour. and
had been discovered just as they were
making their exit.
It was only when the fellows had
been turned over to the police that
Fred felt sure of the identity of the
damsel in distress. It was the rich
Miss Gladys, and that was the house
of her aunt. The affair had tried her
nerves, but not so greatly that an in
troduction was not made and Mr
Blngham effusively thanked for his
services and invited to cal. He
waited two or three evenings before
so doing, and one of these evenings a
call was made by James Whitney.,
The matter of the attempted robbery
came up. and as soon as he heard the
name of Fred Bingham he replied:
"Why. I knpw him. He is one of
the workmen at the shops."
"But a gentleman as well, and a
brave man." said the girl.
"I didn't know he went about play'
ing th e gentleman after working
hours."
"It seems to come perfectly natural
to him."
The next morning the elder Whit,
ney left for the west on business,
and at noon the younger called Fred
into the office and fired him point,
blank, notwithstanding a contract,
and further said to him:
'A lot of cheek, you've got, to force
the acquaintanceship of such a lady
as Miss Humphrey. Better drop that
at once. If you don't want troublel
with me."
Fred Bingham reached out and I
caught the other's nose between
thumb and finger, and after holding
it for a few seconds let go and walk. l
ed out. That evening he called oin
the rich Miss Gladys, and she in.
sisted that it be a visit. She wanted
to know many things, and she made
the young man talk, and by and by
she said:
"I am the second largest stock.
holder in the Barrett Iron Works
and we need you there."
A month later, when the elder
Whitney returned and found his me
chanical genius gone he threw up his
hands and exclaimed:
"Gone to our strongest rival, lad
that means a loss of $10,000 a year
to us!"
"He was getting in my way social
ly." was the sullen reply.
"Why, you idiot., he'll marry. that
Humphrey girl within a year, and
within two she'll buy out the rest of
the stoekholders and hand him the
bstess!"
