"I suppose they sent me here be
cause I wis imed after you, Uncle
Gerald." Jerry dug Into his grape
fruit aggressively. "I hate Geralti.
Didn't they ever call you Jerrqy?"
"Men do," resionded Marbury ab
seljtly. All of his answers to Jerry
had been absent-inded(ha ones for the
past two weeks. Ile had run out of
details the second day after Jerry's
"MIss Millard calls you Jerry,
IIarbury frowned nnd viped off a
globule of juice from hIs waIsteoat.
"You should eat that in a lba thtub,

Jerry pushed back his plate coin
"I'm through," he announced. "What
are we going to (10 today?"
iar''tiry read hIs newspaper, pre

weeks, and the thing was getting oil

Since then Marbury had been at
[hIe mercy of Jerry. IHe had consti
tuted himself private secretary and
hiousehboy pro ten., whenI he wis not
in the basement chumming wIth the
engineer, or on tile roof sending off
aerop)lales to the joy of Madison ave

the club before dinner lie would give
a report on the day's calls.
"That tailor wants you to pay the
spring bill anyhow. Says you can let
the summer one go till fall. I told
him you11 had the measles badly and
had left for the country. And Mrs.
Joc-elyn asked If you could go to her

"C(iut it," sid M~arbuiry briefly. ''I'll

''No, hut I called her four times,''

Marbuiry reached the telephone M

while Jerry stared at him.
"Hello, Mrs. Iiimllm, please.

and white tamn, smilIng back at one,
her hands deep in her pockets. This
was Nan Millard, and Jerry did sone
hard thinking on her account. Before
the coming of Mrs. Hamilton she had
been Marbury's principal concern iI
"Did Aliss Millard," Jerry began,
and stopped short, fingering the pearl
studs on the bed. He had almost
thought out loud. "I mean, Uncle Gor
ald, which are you going to marry?"
Marbury's fingers fumbled over his
ties in the drawer. le missed Kato's
"I like Nan the best," Jerry added
in what lie tried to make an offhand
"So do I, old man, come to think
of it," Marbury answered between his
teeth. "Trouble is, the ladles have the
preference. You can't club them and
race for the nearest honeymoon cave,
you know. Allss Millard is not ac
cepting a man with only ten thousand
a year. She lacks the essential femin
nine quality of sympathy, whlich is a
bit beyond you, isn't It, Jerry?"
"Hlas the widow got it?" asked
Jerry earnestly. Marbury stared at
him flxedly. ,
"lHow do you know she's a widow?"
"If sile's Mrs. Somebody, you
couldn't marry her unless she was,
Ai1arbury wIls silent. Oddly enough,
the boy's words stirred upi a dormant
sense of honor. lie wondered where
old Hamilton was, anyhow? Left in
som1e Conl Venti ent post abroad, prob
ably. There had been a Frieh d-i
vorce, lie knew, and the rumor that
Fracsti would marry soiebody he
had been jealous of ov(r there. All
at once lie looked at the photograph
on the mantel, it Nan's clear, wide
eyes and sunn1y smile, at the sweet
ness and wholesomeness of her girl
hood, aind le sighed.
"I like her best, ',,o, old man," he
said, "only she won't have me."
The next day Jerry called up Miss
Milla rd and Invited her to call for
111111 and take lhhn to lunch so they

so much better than her pictures, he
decided at first sight. Brown eyes
and(] reddish brown hair, and little
freckles over her nose like gold dust.
And lie loved to answer her questions
about Marbury. She was so delicate
and naive about it. Jerry understood
perfectly. So lie lielped her out. First
he gave his uncle a character for good
temper and kindness and all around
splendid fellowship. Then lie told how
worried lie was about hIm. They were
in a well-known restaurant, at a table
near the window, and Jerry felt safe.
"I can get him here In about two
