SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS CHAPTERS.
Howard Jeffries, Jankers son, under
the evil influence of Robert Underwood,
fellow-student at Yale, leads a life of
dissipation, marries the daughter of a
gambler who died in prison, and is dis
owned by his father. Forced to leave
college, he tried to get work and fails.
His wife, Annie, isstraight as a die, and
has a heart of gold. A former college
chum makes a business proposition to
Howard which requires $2,000 cash, and
Howard is broke. Robert Underwood,
who made love to Annie in his col
lege days and was repulsed, and was
once engaged to Howard's stepmother,
Alicia, is a welcome visitor at the Jef
ries hora. Underwood has apartments
in the Astruria, an exclusive apartment
house. Howard recalls a $250 loan to
Underwood that remains unpaid and de
cides to ask him for the $2,000 he needs.
Mrs1. Jeffries, Sr., prepare for a great
reception at her home. Mrs. Jeffries,
foolishly encourages a dangerous inti
macy with Underwood which the latter
takes advantage of until he becomes a
sort of social highwayman. She gets
a note from bim.
she said; 'Til
"Wait a minute, '
write a line."
Taking from her dainty escritoire a
sheet of perfumed notepaper, she
wrote hurriedly as follows:
"If you dare to come near my houss
to-night T will have you put out by the
Quickly folding the note, she
crushed it into an envelope, sealed it,
handed it to the girl, and said:
"Give that to the messenger."
The servant disappeared and Alicia
resumed her work of drawing on her
gloves in front of her mirror. How
dare he write her-such a letter? Was
her house to be made the headquar
ters for his swindling schemes? Did
w?l 20th jy
he want to cheat more of her friends?
The more she thought of all he had
done, the angrier she became. Her
eyes flashed and her bosom heaved
with indignation. She wondered
what her husband, the soul of honor,
would say if he suspected that she
had permitted a man of Underwood's
character to use his home for his dis
honest practices. She was glad she
had ended it now, before it was too
late. There might have been a scan
dal, and that she must avoid at any
cost. Mr. Jeffries, she felt certain,
would not tolerate a scandal of any
All at once she felt something
brush her cheek. She turned quickly.
It was her husband who had entered
the room quietly.
"Oh, Howard," she exclaimed, peev
ishly; "how you frightened me I You
shouldn't startle me like that"
A tall, distinguished-looking man
with white mustache and pointed
beard stood admiring her in silence.
His erect figure, admirably set off in
a well-cut dress coat suggested the
"What are you doing alone here,
dear?" he said. "I hear carriages out
side. Our guests are arriving."
"Just thinking, that's all," she re
He noticed her preoccupied look
and, with some concern, he demanded:
"There's nothing to worry you, is
"Oh. no nothing like that," she
He looked at her closely and she
averted her eyes. Mr. Jeffries often
wondered If he had made a mistake.
He felt that this woman to whom he
had given his name did not love him,
but his vanity as much as his pride
prevented him from acknowledging
it, even to himself. After all, what
did he care? She was a companion,
she graced his home and looked after j
nis creature comforts. Perhaps no
reasonable man should expect any
thing more. Carelessly, he asked:
"Whom do you expect to-night?"
"Oh, the usual crowd," "replied
Alicia, languidly. "Dr. Bernstein is
coming you know he's quite the rage
just now. He has to do with psychol
ogy and all that sort of thing."
"So, he's your lion to-night, is he?"
smiled the banker. Then he went on:
"By the by, I met Brewster at the
club to-night. He promised to drop
Now it was Alicia's turn to smile.
It was not everybody who could boasr.
of having such a distinguished lawyer
as Judge Brewster on their calling
lists. To-night woald certainly be a
success two lions instead of one.
For the moment she forgot her worry.
"I am delighted that the judge is
coming," she exclaimed, her face
beaming. "Every one is talking about
him since his brilliant speech for the
defense in that murder case."
The banker noted his 'wife's beau
tiful hair and the white transparency
of her skin. His gaze lingered on the
graceful lines of her neck and bosom,
glittering with precious 'stones. An
exquisite aroma exuding from her per
son reached where he .stood. His
eyes grew more ardent and, passing
his ann, affectionately around her
slender waist, he asked:
"How does my little girl like her
"It's very nice. Don't you see I'm
wearing it to-night?" she replied al
most impatiently and drawing herself
Before Mr. Jeffries had time to re
ply there was a commotion at the
other end of the reception room,
where rich tapestries screened off the
main entrance hall. The butler drew
the curtains aside.
"Mr. and Mrs. Cortwright," he an
Alioia went forward, followed by
her husband, to greet her guests.
