SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS CHAPTERS.
Howard Jeffries, banker's 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, is straight 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 wast repulsed, and was
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.
Mrs. Jeffries, Sr., prepares for a great
reception at her home. Mrs.' Jeffries, sr.,
foolishly encourages a dangerous inti
macy with Underwood which the latter
takes advantage of until he becomes a
sort of social highwayman. Discover
ing his true character, Mrs. Jef fries," sr.,
denies him the house, but receives a
note from Underwood threatening sui
cide unless she revokes her sentence
of banishment. She decides to go and
see him. Underwood Is in desperate
financial straits. Merchants for whom
he has acted as commissioner in the
sale of art treasures demand an ac
counting. Underwood cannot make good.
"To-morrow," he echoed faintly.
"Yes," said Bennington grimly. "You
might as well understand the situation
thoroughly. The game's up. The firm j
nas been watching you for some time.

Before the manager could reply the
telephone bell rang sharply. "Under
wood started. An expression of fear
came over his face. Perhaps the firm
of liquor. When he left home that
.evening he had sworn to Annie that
he would not touch a drop, but by the
time he reached the Astruria his cour
age failed him. He rather feared Un
derwood, and he felt the need of a
stimulant to brace him up for the
"strike" he was about to make. The
.back door of a saloon was convenient
ly open and while he was refreshing
himself two other men he knew

"Sit down Hm glad to see you."
"You don't look it," grinned How
ard, as he advanced further into the
room with shambling, uncertain steps.
Concealing his ill humor and prom
ising himself to get rid of his unwel
come visitor at the first opportunity,
Underwood introduced the two men.
"Mr. Bennington Mr. Howard Jeff
Mr. Bennington had heard of the
older Jeffries' trouble with his scape
grace son, and he eyed, with some in
terest, this young man who had made
such a fiasco of his career.
"Oh, I know Bennington," exclaimed
Howard jovially. "I bought an ele
phant's tusk at his place in the days
when I was somebody." With mock
sadness he added, "I'm nobody now
couldn't even buy a collar button."
"Won't you sit down and stay
awhile?" said Underwood sarcastic-
"I must," said the manager. As he
went toward the door he made a close
scrutiny of the walls as if searching
for something that was not there.
Stopping short, he said:
"I don't see the Velasquez."
"No no," stammered Underwood
nervously. "It's out out on proba
tion. Oh, it's all right. I can account
for everything." J
Mr. Bennington continued his in
spection. "I don't see the Gobelin tapestry."
he said laconically.
"Oh, that's all right, too, if they'll
only give me time," he cried desper
ately. "Good God, you don't know I
what it means to me, Bennington! The
position I've made for myself will be
swept away and "
Mr. Bennington remained distant
and unsympathetic and Underwood
threw himself into a chair with a ges
ture of disgust.
"Sometimes I don't think I care
what happe'ns," he exclaimed. "Things
haven't been going my way lately. I
don't care a hang whether, school
keeps or not If they drive me to the
wall I'll do something desperate.
A ring at the front door bell inter
"Who can that be?" he exclaimed,
startled. He looked closely at his
companion, as if trying to read in his
face if he were deceiving him.
"Probably your friend of the tele
phone," suggested Bennington.
Underwood opened the door and
Howard entered jauntily.
"Hello, fellers, how goes it?" was
his jocular greeting.

he added: "Sorry, if I'm butting in."
Underwood was not in the humor
"If you don't mind, I'll have a drink
first," replied Howard, making his
way to the desk and taking up the
