SYXOPSIS OF PREVIOUS CHAPTERS.
Howard Jeffries, banker's son, under
the evil influence of Robert Underwood,
fellow-student at Tale, leads a life of
dissipation, marries the daughter of a
gambler who died in prison, and Is dis- i
owned by his father. Forced to leave
college, he tried to get work and fails.
IHs wife, Annie, is straight as a die, and
has a heart of gold. A former college
chum makes a business proposition tc
Howard which requires ?2,000 cash, ami I
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 home. 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.
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. Jeffries, 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
financial straits. Merchants for whom '
he has acted as commissioner in the '
sale of art treasues demand an ac- t
counting. Underwood cannot make good.
Howard Jeffries calls at Underwood's
apartments in an intoxicated condition
to borrow money.
Underwood did not conceal his an
noyance, but his angry glances were
entirely lost on his new visitor, who
was ranidlv srettine' intn j monii;n

with familiarity, Howard went on:

Bennington smiled and nodded.
"Yes, sir; I do, indeed. Ah, your
father is a fine art critic I"
Howard burst into boisterous laugh
ter. "Art critic!" he exclaimed. "I
should say he was. He's a born
critic. He can criticise any old thing
every old thirg. I don't care what
It is, he ca2 criticise it 'When in doubt 1

tesy to each ne raised the glass to his
lips and said: "Here's how!"
Bennington laughed good humored
ly, and turned to go.
"Well, good night, Mr. Jeffries.
Good night, Mr. Underwood."
Underwood followed the manager to
"Good night!" he said gloomily.
The door slarimed, and Underwood
returned to the sitting room. Taking
no notice bf Howard, he walked over
to the desk, slowly selected a cigar
and lighted it. Howard looked up at
him foolishly, not knowing what to
say. His frequent libations had so
befuddled him that he had almost for
gotten the object of his visit.
"Excuse my butting in old chap,"
he stammered, "but "
Underwood made no answer. How

cheer you up. Who was it said:
'There's nothing cheers us up so much
as other people's money?' " Reaching
for the whisky bottle, he went on:
"First I'll pour out another arink.
You see, I need courage, old man.
I've got a favor to ask. I want some
money. I not oniy want it I need It"

mate had certainly chosen a good time
to come and ask him for money. How
ard mistook the cynical gayety for
"I said I'd cheer you up," he went
on. "I don't want to remind you of
that little matter of two hundred and
fifty bucks which you borrowed from
me two years ago. I suppose you've
forgotten it, but "
A look of annoyance came over Un
"Well, what of it?" he snapped.
Howard took' another drink before
"I wouldn't remind you of the loan,
old chap; but I'm up against it. When
the family kicked me out for marry
ing the finest girl that ever lived, my
father cut me off with a piking allow
ance which I told him to put in the
church plate. I told him I preferred
independence. Well," he went on
with serio-comic gravity, "I got my In
dependence, but I'm I'm dead broke.
You might as well understand the situ
ation plainly. I can't find any busi
! ness that I'm fitted for, and
threatens to go back to -work. Now,
you know I can't stand anything like j
that. I'm too much of a man to be
supported by any woman."
He looked toward Underwood in a
stupid kind of way, as if looking for
some sign of approval, but he was dis
appointed. Underwood's face was a
study of supreme indifference. He did
not even appear to be listening. Some
what disconcerted, Howard again
raised the glass to his lis and thus

'Then I thought of you, old chap.

Underwood impatiently interrupted
"It's impossible, Jeffries. Things are
a little hard with me, too, just now.
You'll have to wait for that $250."
"'Taint the 250, old man, I didn't
want that. I want a couple of thou
sand." Underwood could not help laughing.
"A couple of thousand? Why not
i make it a million?"
Howard's demand struck him as be
ing so humorous that he sat down con
J vulsed with laughter.
