XEAIt passed since the event
ful night for "Wheeler Brand
when Nolan made him man
aging editor of the Advance.
In these months Brand made a showing
srith the paper that was never dream
ed of by the owners preceding as being
within the range of possibility. Made
absolute master of the paper and con
sequently dictator of its policy, the
young man set a pace that the paper's
rivals found difficult to equal, much
less to outstrip. His exposure of the
scandals in the exclusive warld of
high life insurance finance has thus
far proved the most vital reform of
his administration. As a result of this
crusade, which drove a half dozen
leading officials from almost as many
companies, the president of the "United
States stated publicly that "the vast
life insurance business of this country
is now on the soundest financial basis
Jt has ever had."
But Wheeler Brand in the press of
gtirring events had not forgotten Judge
Bartelmy. In fact, certain activities of
that estimable individual were just
now under close scrutiny by the one
time reporter, who. if he could be pre
vailed on to speak concerning it,
might possibly observe that the judge
was very soon to have an opportunity
to make a few explanations which
would be received with undoubted in
terest by the public- The young edi
tor's suit for the hand of Judith Bar
telmy might be said, since ve are
dealing with a judge's family, to oe in
statu quo. She was still waiting for
him "to become sane," as she had ex
pressed herself to him. A girl of lofty
principles and of decided strength of
character, she could not see his duty
from hi viewpoint. Perhaps it was
all quite natural, quite womanly, quite
daughterly, that she should subscribe
absolutely to her father's side in the
momentous case of "JUDGE BAR
TELMY VERSUS THE PEOPLE,
WHEELER BRAND AND THE AD
VANCE." She was loyal to her father, and she
was trying to be loyal to her lover,
and the taskr was becoming more and
more difficult. Yet she waited, and
Wheeler Brand waited, and each pray
ed that the other would end the ordeal
and heal two breaking hearts.
Today we Gnd Wheeler Brand pro
ceeding toward the luxurious Nolan
home on a fashionable residential thor
oughfare to visit the proprietor of the
paper to hand him a statement of the
Advance's progress, to discuss mat
ters of editorial policy and to confer
regarding a certain development con
cerning Judge Bartelmy.
At the Nolan home a reception had
been announced, hundreds Xyf invita
tions sent out, .but the responses did
not encourage Mrs. Nolan, in her so
cial aspirations. Society passed her
by. That was the whole story in
brief. Society, as usual, was ever so
much pleased with itself and was too

busy to include ilrs. -Nolan, Phyllis
and Sylvester in its diversions. The
husband and father cared very little
for society, had no time for it, but he
fondly loved the courageous, warm
hearted woman who bad uncomplain
ingly shared with him the onerous
hardships of his early days, and it was
his desire to gratify her ambitions as
well as those of his daughter. The
fortune he had plucked from Nevada's
flinty bosom enabled him to be gener
ous, and he smiled approvingly on ev
ery new extravagance of Mrs. Michae
Nolan. Therefore if she was socially
ambitious she must have her way an
be allowed to carry on her campaig
for recognition in whatever fashion sht
chose. Certainly the home he had es
tablished was a fitting vantage ground
from which to wage a war of dollars
against the precipitous embattlement
with which the city's Four Hundred
had encircled its camp. Palatial in
size, the Nolan residence was equally '
palatial in its furnishings, and onlj
the magic word from the magic lips
of a single member of the magic realm
of "the aristocracy" was necessary to
send monogrammed coaches in long
lines to the Nolan doors, to fill the cost
ly rooms with distinguished faces, to
fill to overflowing with happiness the
yearning heart of Mrs. Michael Nolan.
But the word had not yet been spo
ken. It was now late in the afternoon
at the Nolan home. Phyllis walked
across the drawing room, irritation
plainly marking her pretty pink and
white face. The music of a string
orchestra stationed in the conserva
tory ceased. She addressed a servant
who stood at attention at a door at the
right which led to the dining room.
"Pitcher," she said discouragedly, "I
don't-think any one else will come, so
tell the musicians they can go."
"Yes, Miss Phyllis."
At this point Mrs. Nolan came storm
ing in, carrying a huge bunch of hot
house grapes in her hand.
"Pitcher, I noticed those caterer men
are drinking all the champagne, and I
want it stopped," she ordered loudly.
Pitcher bowed and went out.
"If our guests won't come here to
drink it, at least we will drink it our
selves," Mrs. Nolan announced to Phyl
lis. "Well, we have done it sent
out 400 cards, and who's been here
that anybody wants to see? This is
the second time we've gone to all this
trouble and expense for nothing and
nobody, and if you'll take my advice it
will be tue last."
"Mamma, Pitcher will hear," the girl
The mother bit a grape from the
bunch. She deposited the skin and
stones in a Sevres vase on the marble
"Phyllis, what, did you have to pay
that musician?' she asked.
"Well, his price is a thousand dol
lars." "Good zracious I"
"But I got him for $750. I promised
the Advance would help him."
"Seven fifty for playing twice. I'd
rather hear the band." Mrs. Nolan bit
off another grape.
"You don't understand, mamma. Ev
erybody's wild over that violinist."
"It seems there wasn't nobody wild
enough to come here."
"There wasn't 'anybody,'" spoke
Phyllis, correcting her mother.
"Well, was there?" retorted the
mother as she dropped the grape skin
in another vase.
"Oh, dear," Phyllis wailed disconso
lately as she seated herself before a
small stand, "don't rub it in, mamma!
I can't help it."
"Now, who's blaming you, child?"
consoled the mother. "There, don't
cry. I'm not so disappointed about
myself, but I can't bear to see you
snubbed right and left You are good
enough to go with any of these people,
and you shall too. It's that newspaper
that's at the bottom of it People
won't have it, or us because of it, and
I mean to tell your father so too. And
that's why these 'at homes' is no

"Well, are they? It would have been
better to put your $750 into suffra

Sylvester Dolan interrupted the con
versation between mother and daugh
ter by appearing before them withhis
:osom friend, Max Powell, who be
lieved himself to have the makings of
a master poet. It was with deepest
pride that the Nolan son presented
Powell, long haired, sallow faced and
seedily dressed, to his mother and sis
ter. Sallow faced? Indeed, his coun
tenance had that sickly greenish yel
low hue that comes from long de
vouring of the muses and lang ab
stinence from the devouring oiTfood.
"Hello, mamma!" he cried enthusi
astically. "Here's a friend of mine I
want you to know Mr. Powell, the
"How do you do, Mr. Powell? You
look as if it would be easy for yon to

just sets me wild!"
Sylvester patted Powell on the back.
"Well, this lad's going to make a
big noise in poetry some day. Phyllis,
you must have heard of Powell. My
sister, old man!"
"Won't you have a cup of tea. Mr.
Poweli?" invited Mrs. Nolan," visibly
impressed by the presence of a poet at

his tbanks. He did not seem over
delighted at the offer.
