In the seat behind tho middle-aged
woman and the girl with her sat Chevalier
Darcy. Ho had been sitting
there for two hours, and he had figured
out that the woman was no lady.
That is, she had not been born to the
purple. She was just a woman trying
to be a lady. He figured that tho girl
was about nineteen, tho niece of tho
other, and that she was frank and ingenuous
and not trying to bo anything
olse. Ills eyes had told him over and
over again during those two hours
that she was good to look upon.
Chevalier Darcy looked to he thirty
years old. Ho may have been ten
years older. It was his business to
iook tnirty and to size up people. For I
half an hour he had seen that the !
girl had something on her mind (hat 1

Mrs. Flynt was a thoughtful woman.
She thought that collision might have
jarred the chevalier'B wallet out of
his pocket and lost It. At his very
first call she offered to become his
banker. She put It In a way to spare
nis proud reelings, and ho pocketed
tho check and said he did not look for
such fine consideration in crude America.
They had already looked askance
at him at the hotel, but that check
saved tho day.
For a fortnight Mrs. Flvnt had
thoughts and dreams connected with
herself and titles and castles. She
was a chevalieress. She was the boss
of a hundred servants. She was on |
friendly terms with people of blue j
blood. Then she became conscience- '
stricken. Thci ? was tliat poor girl
Florence. She had premised to do the
square thing by her, nn<l would it be
doing it to beat her out of title and
castles? Wasn't the chevalier already i
showing by his actions that he was J
falling in love with the pi? No. Old
Josh Flynt had always been called a
square man?even if he did divide
with tiic alderman ?and his widow
would uphold his reputation. Later

The aunt sought Miss Florence and ,
resigned the chevalier to her and
asked no gratitude in return.
Then came tho long-delayed confession.
Florence was engaged to n i
young man in Poughkcepsle. She '
didn't exactly know about his family
er finances, but he had curly hair and ;
black eyes and very white teeth and
a tenor voice. She loved him, and she j
would marry him, and she didn't care i
two red cents for an old chevalier. As

Mrs Flynt became very angry. She
scolded and criticised and put her
foot down. Then she shed tears and
appealed. Here was the chance of a 1
