"I've teep trying to do that for n

"But I couldn't throw them into the

"Ton can give them back to the peo

"But you are talking like a mad an

"So much the worse for our finan

"But. Jim. no matter what yonr the

returned to New York on the

"I'm sorry. Cal." be answered quick
ly, "but I must leave at once."
Nan allowed him to go without an
effort to change his decision. A strange
calm had come over her. She drove
to the station with him in silence. He
began to wonder what it meant.
As he stepped from the machine she
extended her hand, with a tender
smile, and said in low tones:
"Until we meet again."
He pressed it gently and was gone.
He reached New York thoroughly
exhausted and blue, but the sight of
Harriet seated on the stoop of the old
home by the square watching a crowd
of children play brought a smile back
to his haggard face.
"They've come to honor me with
their good wishes on my voyage." she
"What voyage?" he asked In sur
prise. "Oh. you didn't know. I've an en
gagement to sing on the continent
this summer. The news came the

A sudden idea struck him.
"Let me go with yon. girlie?"
"Oh. Jim. if you only would. I'd be
"I will!" he said with decision.
"You've booked your passage?"
"Yes. but I'll change it to suit yon."
He found business which required a
week and booked his passage with
Harriet on a Cunarder which sailed
in ten days. A week Inter Nan and
Bivens returned to their New York
house The papers were full of stories
of his failing health
Two days after her arrival Nau tele
phoned to Stuart.
"You must come up to see Cal to
night." she said earnestly. "He is ask

"Is he really dangerously ill?" Stuart
"It's far more serious than the papers

"Yes. early tomorrow morning. I've

will keep me until 12 o'clock. I'm sail

A sudden click at the other end and
he was cut off. His experienced ear
told him it was not an accident
It was just dawn when Stuart's tele
phone rang and he leaped from bed.

up her receiver.

In all the hurrying thousands not one
knew or cared a straw whether the
man of millions in bis silent palace on
the drive lived or died.
The house was evidently In hopeless
conftision. Servants wandered in ev
ery direction without order. Doctor aft
er doctor passed in and out. and the
sickening odor of medicines filled the
air. A group of newspaper reporters
stood at the foot of the grand stairway.
Nan stood shivering at the bead of
the stairs, pale, disheveled, her dark
eyes wld and staring with a new ex
pression of terror in their depths.
"How is he. Nan?"
"Worse." she stammered through
chattering teeth. "The doctors say he

Shivering In silence she led Smart
to the door of Bivens' room and fled
to her own.
On a magnificent bed of gleaming
ebony Inlaid with rows of opals, thou
sands of opals. Stuart found the little
shriveled form. The swarthy face was
white and drawn, the hard thin lips
fallen back from two rows of smooth
teeth In pitiful, fevered weakness. The
shifting eyes caught sighfof Stuart.
"It's awfully good of you to come
up here so soon," he began feebly.
"I've some plans I want yoo to carry
out for me right away. You see I
never thought before of the world as
a place where there were so many
men and women sick and suffering-
thousands and tens and hundreds of
thousands. These doctors say that
every night in New York alone there
are half a million people sick or bend
ing over the beds of loved ones who
are suffering, and two hundred die
He paused for breath, and the black
eyes stared at his friend.
"Jim, I can't die! I haven't lived!
I've got to get up from here and do
some things I've meant to do all those
sick people I've got to do something
for them. I'm going to build palaces
for the lame, the halt, the sick, the j
blind. I'm going to gather the great
men of science from the ends of the
earth and set them to work to lift i
this shadow from the world."
A sudden pain seized and convulsel
his frail body and Stuart called thi
doctors from the next room.
They stood by In helpless sympathy.
"Can t you stop this pain?" the fi
nancier gasped in anger. "What are
you here for? Am I not able to buy
enough 'morphine to stop this hellish
His family doctor bent and said:
"Your heart action is too low just
now, Mr. Bivens. you can't stand it"
"Well. I can t stand this! Give it to
me. I tell you!"
The doctor took a hypodermic
sj rinse, filled it with water and in
jected It into his arm.
While Stuart watched the pitiful
trick, his eye wandered over the mag
nificent trappings of the room.
"What Irony of fate!" he exclaimed.

I The sufferer stared and beckoned to

from beneath his pillow he cried:
"Unlock the right hand top drawer
of that safe. Jim the door is open.
Hand me those bundles of stocks aud
bonds and call those doctors."
Stuart complied with his request and
Bivens spread the brilliantly colored
papers on the white covering of his
bed. while the doctors drew near.
"Listen now. gentlemen." he began,
still gasping with pain. "Y'ou're our
greatest living doctors. I'm told. Well.
I'm not willing to die. I won't die do

there are three of you. I'll give you
ten millions each to take this stone
off of my breast that's smothering me
and give me five years more of life."
The three men of science stood with
folded, helpless arms and made no ef- I
fort to keep back the tears. They had
seen many men die. It was nothing
new and yet the pity and pathos of
this strange appeal found their way to
the soul of each. They never envied
a millionaire again.
They retired for another consulta
tion. Stuart replaced the papers and
gave the key to Bivens.
"Ask Nan to come here a minute."
he said feebly.
Stuart walked to the door and whis
pered to a servant When he return
ed to the bedside the dying man look
ed up into his face gratefully.
"You don't know how it helps me
to have you near. Jim. old boy. I'm
lonely. Nan I guess is ill and broken
down. I've lavished millions on her.
I've given her all I possess in ray will,
but somehow we never found happi
ness. If I could only have been sure
of the deep, sweet, unselfish love of
one human soul on this earth! If I
could only bare won a girl's heart
when I was poor. But I was rich,
and I've always wondered whether
she really loved me for my own sake.
At least I've always thanked God for
you. You've been a real friend. Our
hearts were young together and you
stood by me when I was poor"
An hour later when the covering
was turned back from the dead body
Stuart saw that the smooth little coid
band bad gripped the key to bis treas
ures in a last instinctive grasp.
He looked again at the lump of cold
clay and wondered what was passing
in the soul of the woman who was
now the heir of all his millions.
Why had she shown such strange
and abject terror over his death an
event she had foreseen and desired?
A horrible suspicion suddenly flashed
through bis mind. He determined to
know at once.
Aa he had feared. Nan refused point
blank to enter the death chamber and
asked him to come to her boudoir.
He found her standing by a win
dow, apparently calm. Stuart looked
at her a moment with a curious de
tached interest. Suddenly aware of
his presence she turned.
"At last, at last!" she cried In low
broken accents. "Ob. dear Coil, how
long I've waited and despaired! At
last we may belong to each other for
everbody and soul! Nothing else mat
ters now. does it? We shall forget all
the blank hideous years; you'll forcet
