The Banker of
By HAROLD SINCLAIRE
' (i, WMi.ro N.w.ptpcr Union.)
When John White, the banker of
Scottboro. announced that he had dlt
penned with the services of Ned Wal
ters, people were a good deal sur
print). TJie young mnn was a general
favorite In the town. Suddenly, at a
day 'a notice, he had been asked to
turn over his books to a new cashier.
"Iiolntlve of mine, this new official,"
the bank president rather lamely ex
plained. "Rubbish I" commented Mrs. Bunsby,
head gossip of the place. "Mr. Wal
ters presumed to lift his eyes to El
olse White. That was enough for tl
old man, who wouldn't look at a '.on-In-law
with less than a million."
Mrs. Bunsby had read the situation
aright, end no one knew It better thnn
the sadly disconsolate Ned. Dut he
looked around for a new position,
awaiting a decision on some, of bis
applications. Mr. White had put bis
foot down firmly, forbade him the
house, and Elotae was a dutiful daugh
ter. She had met her lover Just once
since her father had dismissed him
from his service.
"It Is the last time, Ned," she sold,
like the brave, sensible little woman
she was. "Until I am of age I shall
feel that I belong to papa." iThe bank
In another city where he first had been
employed offered him a subordinate
position. f . -
It was his last night In Scottboro.
With the morning he planned to go
his new place of employment As a
magnet, the home which held bis one
cherished treasure attracted him. He
passed its palatial front. All was
dark, and the household apparently
wrapt In slumber.
Mournfully Ned passed the house.
Then hestarted down a narrow lane.
As he reached the point where It
merged Into an alley that run directly
behind the bank, Ned was surprise to
notice, standing In the vacant space at
the rear of the Institution, a wagon.
Two st eat thy figures were Just enter
ing the rear door of the bank. A
metallic glint Inside of the vehicle
caused Ned ftgaze more closely. Deep
ly stirred at an extraordinary dis
covery, he gnsped out:
"The small safe from the bank
Then roblHry, burglary, was afoot 1
A sound at the rear of the bank at
tracted Ned's attention, Two men
Acting on a quick Impulse, Ned gave
a spring and landed lu the wagon.
"Let's hurry," he heard a gruff voice
'spenk. "We've got about all there Is
worth taking whoa 1"
Something had startled the horse.
80 suddenly did the animal start up
that Ned waa flung flat, striking the
edge of the steel safe. The wagon
swung about like the tail of a kite.
It struck one of the bridge pillars, the
horse tore loose, and the wagon
crashed through the railing and went
over Into the river.
Ned reached the shore bow, ha
Ned must have been In kind of de
lirium after that. When he waa again
reetored to reason It waa two days
later. He lay on a couch tn. a strange
room. A man. a fanner, sot by his

Tou are all right but the doctor says
yon must rest Yoa kept calling for
some one so much," added the man,
"that when my wife found a r photo
graph in yonr pocket with a name un
der It Miss Nellie White, she went to
town and saw the young lady. She's
here now, In the next room. She's a
grand girl, let me tell you. When she
learned you was hurt she gave up
home, father, everything to come and
nurse you. I know the old miser
man of means, and mean, ton. He's
down grade now, though bank rob
bed, everything gone. Now, then, say,
I'm curious to know bow you ever got
into this fix."
Ned told. The farmer evinced the
greatest excitement as his patient
spoke of the wagon box that went into
"Why," he exclaimed, "I noticed the
battered wreck of Just such a contrap
tion fouled Into the cut-off on my
"If It Is the one I was In," declared
Ned excitedly, "It holds the safe stolen
from the bank."
It did, as they soon ascertained. Old
John White had felt badly at losing
hisMaughter; he had felt worse nt los
ing his fortune. Now, with a chance
to get both back, he graciously ac
cepted Ned as a son-in-law.
To many of us the Pacific conjures
up visions of sun-flecked coral Islands
set in an uzure sea, of cloudless skies
and scented, off-shore breezes ; or per
haps of warm, tropic nights with some
shadowy palm-tree ("that giraffe of
vegetables" as Stevenson called It)
fantastically bowing to the great silver
moon, while the distant drum-taps of
some village dance, now quick, now
slow, come rhythmically floating
across the lagoon. To all who have
once been swayed by the intoxicating
charm of the Pacific there is a memory
never to be forgotten, a voice whose
seductive call appeals to all alike. To
some the magic of It rises even la the
years long after, and draws them Irre
sistibly back. I have known the rough

A GOLD BRICK always looks good. It has to. Its
promising appearance is its sole virtue. Looks alone
will not sell goods today. Merchandise with a nszne
the name of its maker has the call. For only the maker
of worthy goods can long afford to advertise. At the
High Court of Public Opinion any other sort is soon con
demned. ' Wise manufacturers seek the good publications to tell
the story of their wares. The publishers seek the reput
able advertising for the readers' guidance. The well in
formed buyer seeks news of good merchandise through
the columns of the best publications.
This proves the value of advertising. Neither adver
tiser nor publisher can prosper without your patronage.
Therefore, it is to their advantage to cater to you. They
doit, too. n
And it is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by
the message they lay before you the advertisements.
