They left the next day with Elias
Droom, depressed, nervous, dreading
the hour ahead of them. Neither was
in the mood to respond to the eager.
excited remarks of the old clerk. The
short railroad trip was -one never to
be forgotten; impressions, were left in
their lives that could not be effaced.

The convict's face was ashen and his

A malevolent grin was on Droom's

"Father, didn't you expect me to

"Not here. Why should I have tried
to keep you from returning to this
country? God knows how I hoped
and prayed that you'd not see me here.
Elias Droom knew it. That's why he

"Nonsense, father," cried Graydon,
visibly distressed, by his father's an

"I hate to think of you in this awful
place," began Graydon.
"Don't think of me."
"But I've seen you here, father!"
cried the son.
'A pretty spectacle for a son," laugh
ed the father bitterly. "Why did you
bring that girl here? That was cruel
heartless." Graydon tried to convince bini that
Jane had not come to gloat, but to ask
a favor of him.
"A favor, eh? She expects me to tell
all I know about her, eh? That's
goodr.' laughed Bansemer.
"Father, she has done you no wrong.
Why are yon so bitter against her? It's
not right. It's not like you."
Bansemer looked steadily at him for
a full minute.
"Is she going to marry you, Gray

would. He was free to do so; but,
curse him, he would not give me the
satisfaction of knowing that he was a
traitor. He knew I'd go over the road
anyhow. He's been waiting for this
day to come. He has finally given me
the unhapplest hour in my life."
After a few moments he quieted
down and asked Graydon what his
plans were for the future. In a strain
ed, uncertain way the two talked of
the young man's prospects and the ad
vantages they promised.
: "Go ahead, Graydon,' and don't let

He turned away abruptly, his shoul
der drawn upward as if In pain, and
Graydon left the place, weakened and
sick at heart.
Jane and Droom were awaiting him
in an outer office. The former looked
into his eyes searchingly, tenderly.
I'm so sorry, Graydon," she said as
6he took his hand in hers.
All the way back to Chicago Elias
Droom sat and watched them from un
der lowered brows, wondering why it
was that he felt so much lonelier than
he ever had felt before wondering,
too. In a vague sort of way why he
was not able to exult, after all.
AXE was ill and did not
leave her room during
the two days following
the visit to the peniten
tiary. She was haunted
by the face of James
Bansemer, the convict. It was beyond
her powers of imagination to recall
him as the well groomed, distinguished
man she once had known. Graydon
was deeply distressed over the pain
and humiliation he had subjected her
to through Droom's unfortunate efforts.
The fact that she could not or would
not see him - for 1 wo days hurt him
more than he could express, even to
himself. The day before he left for
New York, however, she saw him in
their parlor. She was pale and quiet.
Neither mentioned .the visit to the
prison. There was nothing to sav.

week?" he asked as he arose to leave,
H-spirit -was sore. She again had
told him that he must not hope. With
a hysterical attempt to lead him on to
other topics she repeated her conversa
tions wnn leresa aiesquez, urging
him, with a hopeless attempt at brava

marry her. He laughed lifelessly at
"We will leave Chicago on Monday.
Father will have his business affairs
arranged by that time. I would not let
him resign the presidency. It would
seem as if I were taking it away with
him. We expect to be in Europe for
six or eight months; then I am coming
back to New York, where I was born,
Graydon, to work."
He went away with the feeling in his
heart that he was not to see her again.
A, 6ingle atom of determination linger
ed In his soul, however, and he tried to
build upon it for the future. RIgby's
wedding invitation had come to him
that morning, almost as a mockery.
He tore it to pieces, with a scowl of
Droom's effects were on the way to
New York. He hung back, humbly
waiting for Graydon to suggest that
they should travel east on the same
train. His grim, friendless old heart
gave a bound of pure Joy, the first be
had known, when the young man made
the suggestion that night
Together they traveled eastward nud
homeward, - leaving behind them the
gray man in stripes.
Jane's six months in Europe ' grew
into- a year, and longer. It was a long
but a profitable year for Graydon Ban
semer. He had been enriched not only
in wealth,- but in the hope of ultimate
happiness. Not that Jane encouraged
him. Far from it She was more obdu
rate than ever with an ocean between
them. But. his atom of determination
had grown to a purpose. His face was
thinner, and his eyes were of a deeper,
more wistful gray. They were full of
longing for the girl across the sea and
of pity and yearning for the man back
there in the west. '
He had tolled bard and well. He bad
won. The shadow of '99 was still over
htm, but the year and a new ambition
had lessened its blackness. Friends
were legion In the great metropolis.
He won his way into the hearts and
confidence of new associates and re
newed fellowship with the old. Invita
tions -came thickly tipon him, but he
resolutely turned his back upon most
of them. He was not socially hungry in
r Once a week he wrote to his father,
but. there never was a reply. He did
not expect one, for James Bansemer, in
asking him to write, bad vowed that
his- son should never hear from him
again until he could speak as a free
man and a chastened one. True to his
promise, Graydon instituted no move
ment to secure a pardon. He did, by a
strong personal appeal, persuade Denis
Hwoext to .dxop.XDrUier DrosecuUon.
There were enough Indictments aeainst
his father to have kept him behind the
bars for life.
Elias Droom had rooms in Eiehth
avenue, not a great distance from
Herald square. He was quite proud
of his new quarters. They had many
of the unpleasant features of the old
ones in Wells street but thev were

"I've retired from active work" he
informed Graydon one day when that
young man stared In astonishment at
him. "What's the use, my boy, in

worklngman when he is a gentleman

you to see me In an .evening suit, eh?

said, adding, with a sarcastic laugh:
"That ought to make a perfect gentle

him. That's why he stays on with
me. He doesn't know when I'm dis
charging him. and I don't know when
he's threatening to leave. What do
you think of my ropms?"
It was Graydon's first visit to the
place, weeks after their return to New
York. He had not felt friendly to
Droom since the day at the prison.
but now he was forgetting his resent
ment in the determination to wrest
from him the names of Jane's father
and mother. He was confident that
the old man knew.
"Better than Wells street, eh? Well,
you see, I was In trade then. Different
now. I'm getting to be quite a fop.

with raw mimicry. "They thought 1

to look like Ihe devil, you know."
"By the Lord Harry. Elias." cried
Graydon. "you look like the devil now."
"I've got these cariet slippers on be

days. What do you hear from her?"
Graydon went back to the subject after
a few moments. "I am morally certain
that I know who her father and mother
were, but It won't do any good to tell
her. How's your father?"
After this night Graydon saw the
old man often. They dined together
occasionally in the small cafes on the
west 6ide. Droom could not. for some
reason known only to himself, be In
duced to go to Sherry's again.

He counted the weeks and days un
til the man would be free, and his eyes
narrowed with these furtive glances
into the future. He felt in his heart
that James Bansemer would come to
him at once and that the reckoning for
his single hour of triumph would be a
heavy one to pay. Sometimes he would
sit for hours with his eyes staring
at the Napoleon above the bookcase,
something like dread in their depths.
Then again he would laugh with glee,

Never neglect your kidneys.
If you have pain in the back, uri
nary disorders, dizziness and nervous
ness, it's time to act and no time to
experiment. These are all symptons
of kidney trouble, and you should I
seek a remedy which is known to cure!
Doau's Kidney Pills is the remedy
to use. No need to experiment It
has cured many stubborn enses in
Hock Island. Follow the advice of a
Rock Island citizen and be cured your
self. Mrs. Isaac Sniffer, of 1417 Fifth ave
nue. Rock Island, III., says "My hus
band was troubled for two years with
kidney complaint before he found any
thing to help him. The worst symp
tons he endured were severe pains in
the region of his kidneys and across
his hack, and a frequent action of the
kidneys which he could not control.
He was unable to stoop or lift any
thing and he tried many remedies
without obtaining relief. He read of
Doan's Kidney Pills in the paper and
he decided to try them, procured a
box at the Harper House pharmacy
and after using them a short time the
pains and other symptons left him.
I have used Doan's Kidney Pills my
self and find them to be exactly as
represented. My husband and I agree
that Doan's Kidney Pills are the surest
and safest remedy for kidney trouble."
