Such talk as this w is freoueut between
the men. and it was not without its in

Dan Stewart north ward to Eureka. And
after ;t while Dan v;is overtaken by

"Uses a Huh," Dan llioinjht.
"What the deuce a m I going to doV
questioned Mr. Stewi.rt of liis inner man
as he sat in his empty office and survey
ed his empty order books and his empty
table which should have groautd under
a weight of plans, and pondered over the
general emptiness of time and circum
stances which surron ided hiin.
Failing to elicit any satisfactory re
sponse from the invis ble partner of his
joys and trials, he ran both shapely
hands through his si.nguine curls, and
pulled and twisted th ;m abont until his
head resembled a caricature of the flam
ing torch in the lu.nd of Dartholdi's
statue. Probably he had some vague
notion that if he coul 1 not coax an idea
out he might rub o:.e in: 1n; the
tempt if attempt it was win abort ;
Ideas were coy and !:-..ivc, l!pp;!ig
away into the waste jlaee of hi :'.-1,
and concerning themselves wr 1: : : . . ;ai:
ties. Dan was fain to expostulate. This
won't do, you know,' he ruminat..1. re
proachfully. "Here have 1 sat a solid
year, booted and spurred, ready for the
call of the populace to house its home
less millions, and the populace, instead
of shouting, 'Stewart to the resc-.it !'
trots on with its hands in its pockets,
and doesn't even look on my side of the
street. The confession is humiliating,
but it really appears as though the
homeless preferred tl e sky for a shelter
to a roof of my const notion."'
A pause, filled by the careful trim
ming and polishing of a f-et of nnusually
handsoine nails, ulu.oml shaped and
pink as a woman's. Dan was scrupu
lously neat, almost fastidious, about Lid
person, and refined in all his habits.
"You're the child of Destiny, I know,
my boy," he pursued, "and until recent
ly she hasn't been altogether a etepdame
to you; but it won't d j to press the old
lady too far, it really won't, you know.
She's getting u littk tired of you and
beginning to turn her shoulder. You
must give her a rest and strike out for
yourself before matters grow compli
cated or you'll Ikj getting a grand and
uninterrupted view tf her back. She
has other children to look after besides
But, at the very moment when he was
accusing her of waning interest in his
affairs, Destiny, still mindful of her fa
vorite, was coming u : the stairs in the
guise of a uniformed postman and slip
ping through the slit in the door in the
form of a thickish, white parallelogram.
The dear old lady of ten serves us so; it
is one of her ways of convicting us of
participation in the ti livcrsal sia of in
gratitude. Stewart's correspon lence was not 8j
extensive as to make 1 he arrival of the
mails a weariness to him, and it was
with cheerful alacrity that he rose and
possessed himself of Uis letter. The post
mark (round, staring and distinct, as
unhurried village post narks always are)

(tiiL-h. I've done some of the things we
talked of." ILre followed a concise
sketch of his fortunes and brief mention
of his pecuniary success. However
much boa-ting X; d might be guilty of
orally, nobody could confront him with
written orations on the theme. "I'm
back in Virginia now," the letter pro
reeded, "and have bought a part of the
'jld place I told you of, where I was boru
iin raised, and where my father lived s
long as old .Mr. Beverley's overseer. .Per
haps you'll remember about it. Queer
!iow things swop round, isn't il? Anv-
how, Tin here, and I've bought the land,
and ain going to knock up a decent
house and settle down if tl:ings go as I
want them. There's a shanty that we
used to live in on my farm, but no
house? I'm in it now, and there's
a room for you besides, if vou will
fall in with my scheme. The old
homestead is on the other part of tilt
plantation, ana tlto IJeverleis own it
still. I wanted it, but they wouldn't
sell; so, as 1 say, I've got to build, and 1
want you to come down here and put up
ior h year wun me ami uo up the thin
in style. Money is no object, but taste
is. and as I have plenty of the one and
you of the other, we ought to make a
success of my house. I see that stone
and mortar are in your line now. Come
down and pay me a visit anyhow, and
as soon as you can, because 1 never was
a hog after delay. Til meet you at our
doghole of a station any day yon name,
and we can ta!K things over and arrange
.otit the business part. Bring a gun,
and fishing tackle, and dancing shoes,
too, if you still hanker after the petti
coats, x ne old state can show a pretty
woman or two yet, and we ve got some
sport left, in spite of the niggers and the
chiybank mongrels." The letter was
signed Ids "faithfully, Ned Anthony,"
ami across the top was scrawled hastily
an evident afterthought "Wire what
day I shall meet you."
Dan returned the letter to its envelope,
amused and pleased and interested. So
old Xed Wits back in the neighborhood
he had left twenty years before a bare
footed boy without a second shirt to his
back, in the plumed helmet and golden
spurs of a knight of Plutus. He won
dered how his former chum had been
received in the stately, old fashioned so
ciety of a conservative country neigh
borhood whether they wore gracious
or turned their backs on him because
of his father having w orn shabby home
spun and superintended another man's
plantation and slaves and gone down to
his grave in ignorance of a written lan
guage. He wondered also whether Ned
grated on his neighbors, or whether the
original grain of the man had com
pacted with the growth of years and be
come susceptible of polish. To him Ned
seemed improved; ho liked that onen
reference to his father and his father's
calling; it showed an absence of that
meanest of all qualities, false pride.
There was a delicacy about his reference
to his business matters also which did
not escaiie Dan's notice it was so unlike
the Anthony of old. Most decidedly, he
thought, his friend had improved.
The little romance they had discussed
was doubtless in process of completion
was rounding into the circle of a mar
riage ring, as he had always said it
should. The cheerful tone "of Ned's
letter, its hopefulness, this talk of build
ing and of settling dow-n "if things go
as I want them," all pointed the same
way. And Dan, who liked Ned, and
loved romance like a schoolgirl, loosed
the reins of his imagination and took a
breezy canter of conjecture and arrange
ment. The "things" to he bent to the con
quering hero's will were, of course, pri
marily Miss Mary Beverley's affections,
and secondarily the aristocratic proclivi
ties of Miss Mary Beverley's family.
With the young lady the romance of
having lived the solitary sentiment and
blossomed the solitary flower of a strong
man's nature for twenty years of toil
and roughness and struggles and adven
ture would, lie thought, be better vant
age ground than most lovers possessed
at starting With the family- ah, well,
most locks turn to keys of gold, and if
this one should prove obdurate Ned An
thony had strength and skill enough to

Fortune and bind her captive was not
likely to lot himself be unhorsed by prej
udice. He would hie him down to Old Vir
ginia, and shako his friend's brown hand,
and have a chat about old days; perhaps
entice a few James river bass to respond
to his soft advances. Then, if things
went well with Anthony, he would re
main awhile, and build "little Mary's"
house for her, in his noblest style, and
have a shot at the partridges, and act
"best man," and all that. And then he
would come back again to the bustling
city and try to put in some more effec
tive strokes on the canvas of his own
future than he had done heretofore.
