Never had she felt arms like these
"What did he cable you?" she asked
in a whisper.
"That he loved you and wanted me
to mother you against that time when
he might have the right to take you
as his own. Has he that right?"
"Yes. And oh! he is the bravest
and tenderest man I know; and below
it all he is only a boy."
Mrs. Mortimer patted her hand. A
little while later all four went over
to the city and drove uptown to the
Mortimer home. On the way Fortune
told her story, simply, without avoid
ing any essential detail. And all her
new mother did was to put an arm
about her and draw her closer.
The Mortimer home was only three
blocks away from George's. So, when
dinner was over, George declared that
he would run over and take a look at
his own house. He wanted to wander
about the rooms a bit, to fancy how
it would look when Fortune walked
at his side. He promised to return
within an hour. He had forgotten
many things, ordinarily important;
such as wiring his agent, his butler
and cook, who were still drawing their
wages. He passed along the street
above which was his own. He paused
for a moment to contemplate the
great banklLg concern. And the pres
Ident of this bank was the elder
brother of Ryanne! Lots of queer
kinks in the world; lots of crooked
turnings. He passed on, turned the
corner, and strode toward his home.
ran up the steps. Three doors below
ecstasy thrilling his heart. Lightly he
noticed two automobiles. He gave
them only a cursory glance. He took
out his ring of keys, found the night
latch and thrust it into the keyhole.
He never had believed in this putting
up of iron gates and iron shutters. A
night-latch and a caretaker who came
round once a day was enough for any
sensible person. He turned the key.
Eh? It didn't seem to go round. He
tried several times, but without suc
cess. Puzzled. he struck a match and
stopped before the keyhole.
It was a new one.
A Bottle of Wine.
George stood irresolutely upon the
steps. A new keyhole! What the
deucoe did the agent mean by putting
a new keyhole in the door without
notifying him? As the caretaker never
entered that door, it was all the
agent's fault. There was no area-way
in front, but between George's house
and the next there was a court eight
feet in width, running to the dividing
wall between the bank. property and
his own A grille gate protected this
court. George hfd a key. The gate
opened readily enough. His intention
was to enter by the basement-door

him. Some one in the house, some
one who had no earthly or heavenly
business there! Near the window
stood a tubbed bay-tree. Cautiously
he mounted this, holding the ledge of
the window with his fingers. That
he did not instantly topple over with
a great noise was due to the fact
that be was temporarily paralysed.
Here was the end of the puzzle. The
riddle of the United Romance and Ad
venture Company was solved. At last
he understood why Mrs. Chedsoye
had sought him, why Ryanne had kid
napped him. But for his continuing
his Journey upon the German-Lloyd

week too late; he would have missed

the automobiles. They were leaving
that night. If he acted at all. it must
be within an hour; in less than that
time they would be loading the cars.
His mind began to rid itself of its
confusion. Without the aid of the
police; and presently he saw the way
to do it.
He was off at a dog-trot, upon the
balls of his feet, silently. Within five
minutes he was mounting the steps
to the Mortimer home, and in another
minute was inside. The others saw di
rectly that something serious had hap

"Have you got a brace of revolv

"Two automatics. But . . "
"Give them to me," less evenly in
tone. "Will you call up Arthur Wads
worth, president of the Merchant-Me.
"Yes, the bank. You know, it is
just in the rear of my house."
Here Fortune came forward. All
the bright color was gone from her
cheeks; the old mask of despair had
re-formed. She needed no further en

"Then notify the police, and let the

said, her jaws set squarely.

"Shall I tell you why?'
"Dearest, can't you understand that
it is you I am thinking of ?"
"I am determined. If I 'do not go

again. My mother is there!"'
Tragedy. Mrs. Mortimer stretched
out a hand, but the girl did not see
it. Her mother; her own flesh and
blood! Oh, the poor child!
"Come, then," said George, in de
spair. "But you are hurting me, For

Will you please telephone him? I'm

Explain nothing save that it concerns
George sat down. rot during those
early days of the Journey across the
desert had he felt so pitiably weak
Fortune paced the room, her arms
folded tightly across her breast.
Strange, there was neither fear nor
pain in her heart, only a wild wrath.
When Mortimer returned from the
telephone, saying that Wadsworth
would be right over, he asked George
to explain fuilly what was going on.
It was rather a long story. George
managed to get through it with a co
herency understandable, but no more.
George inspected the revolvers care
fully to see if they were loaded.
The bell rang. and Arthur Wads
worth came in. Mortimer knew him;
George did not. He drew his interest
as it fell due and deposited it in an
other bank. That was the extent of
his relations with Arthur Wadsworth,
president of the Merchant-Mechanic
Bank of New York.
Arthur was small, thin, blong like
his brother, but the hair was so light
upon the top of his head that he gave
one the impression that he was bald.
His eyes looked out from behind half
shut lids; his cheeks were cadaver

Thursday before the senate lobby
A prosperous looking individual,
calling himself Lamar, self-described
as an "operator in stocks," and admit
tedly the bearer of several assumed
names, was the principal in the re
markable session. With entire aban
don, arousing the committee to laugh

he told of his impersonations, his par

Wall street operations and his asso

efforts to have the lawyer retained by
the Morgan firm, the Union Pacific
and other great Interests to head off
congressional activity in Washington.
He telephoned to financial men and
lawyers in the names of Representa

Chairman Hiiles of the republican na
