Errol Jerome turns and regards his

His son looks at him with an expres

lazily into the chair opposite.

announced cheerfully to his friends
that he was dead broke and was going
to work he found no trouble in dispos
ing of theso symbols of his former
wealth. Ho had" a number of haudsomo
diamonds, which Tiffany took back.
Ho gave his debtors mortgages upon
the property of his dead mother, which
ho would come into the next year; and
the debts about covered it nil. Then
with the money from his treasures he
reuted a small office down-town and
hung out his shingle. In this office he
slept on a bed that was a desk in tho
day-time and he took his meals at the
Dairy Kitchen and his lunch at 5-cent
couuters. The world was kind to him
and his friends took it as a supreme
joke that this young son of a million
aire was seemingly reduced to hard
work aud poverty." He had plenty of
braius aud soon his ability gave him
a reputation. He nut the little girl
ut an elegant school and when the year
was up he paid the bills in full. It was
hard self-denial for him at first, but he
grew to love aud take a pride in his
profession. In live years he was mak-
! ing a magnificent income and took his
old stand in tho gay, wealthy world
when he felt like it, but his life had
grown too broad and serious in its am
bitions for him ever to be a devotee of
fashion again. He saw the little girl
every now and then and he taught liar
to call him "uncle," and as such he
was accepted by the teachers and
He met his father out quite often and
they always greeted each other affably
before tho world. No one knew save
themselves that there had been a differ
ence between them.
When the girl reached 18 Lyslo Je
rome found himself in a state of utter
perplexity. What was he to do with
her, sure enough? He couldn't send
her back to the fisherman's hut; ho
couldn't set up an establishment, and
adopt her, and bring her out into so
ciety. A happy thought struck him, and re
sulted iu his finding himself iu Mrs.
DeLancey's lovely morning room,
waiting for that leader of fashion to
enter. Mrs. DeLancey was a woman
that even women couldn't help liking,
and all men, save her homely old hus
band, adored her. Errol himself had
been making harmless love to her since
his boyhood. She was S, now, but she
didu't look out of the tweuties as she
entered tho apartment in a morning
gown of pompadour silk, all frills and
"My dear boy," she said tenderly,
all her fair, fresh, dimpled faco alight,
"so glad to sea you. Your visits are
to be prized now that they are so raro
and you are getting so distinguished.'
"Maybe." ho says uneasily, "you
won't be so glad when I tell you what
I want. It has occurred to me that
having no children you'll like to adopt
one. I have a girl whom I want you
His fair listener looked at him as if
she thought him joking or crazy.
"I am in earnest." he said seriously,
and then he told her the story, aud of
his present helpless position.
"And this," she says, "lias been tho
reason for your sudden going to work
and making a man of yourself raro
thing for an only child aud rich man's
sou to do. I think you do owe that
girl more than she owes you. and I've
half a mind to help you with her."
"You are an augcl," he says grateful
ly, "and I am your slave for life if you
will take charge of her."
"My dear boy, do not declare your
self my slave for life any more; rather
let mo" be a mother to you aud a grand
mother to the child of your adoption.
I have grown weary of homage. I
have been growing desperate recently
and threatening myself with entering a
convent or doing the charity act. 1

when you came. This girl will bo a
blessed relief. She shall bo the orphan
child of a dead friend, and I shall in

really would enjoy helping you select
her wardrobe for the debut this winter.

chief pleasuru was in having her dressed

"You say it with the pride of a
mother," she laughed. "What is the
The woman before him gave a'
startled movement, and her face turned
old and pale. She bit her lip convul
sively. "I knew a man of that name once,"
she said, under her breath, as if to her
self; then, rousing herself and rising:
"Go now, dear boy. I've an engage
ment for lunch. Go. and bring the
girl to me tomorrow; and now good-by."
Tho next morning found Jerome
with his charge awaiting Mrs. DeLan
cey in the same room. The man re
garded the young girl with pleased
satisfaction as she stood before him,
taking in with delightful eyes all the
charm and daintiness of tho bright
room. She was a tall girl.graccful and
slender. Her eyes were alternately blue
and gray very large, and deep" and
dark, with long, black lashes. and dark,
arched brows. The complexion wus
very dark, aud tho checks were full of
rich color, and her hair was black and
"Sho is such good form, so thorough

with iufinilo pride.
"So glad to see you," said Mrs. De
Lance as sho entered tho room and
went up to ' tha girl, v. hose back was
half turned toward her. As the girl
looked up with a bright smile of greet
ing the elder woman caught her breath
shandy aud turned suddenly pale.
"Vhcre did jou come from?" sho
naked quickly. "What was your fath
er' name? What was your mother's?
Where did your father come from?''
All these questions poured out in rapid,
"I have my father's name." 6he re
plied, "aud he came from the north to
tho south before I was loru. lie mar
ried my mother in Brunswick. That is
all 1 know."
"It is not all I know," replied the
woman softly. "I loved your father.
I was engaged to him when I married
my husband. I deceived him basely
and ruined both our lives. He wont
away, I never knew where. And so
I am to take you as an atonement for
the past. God has been merciful in
giving me such an easy ana welcome
atonement. Yes, Lysle, I will take
this girl as my own tako her, with
all rav heart. Her mother could not
have "been tenderer to her than I could
Sho leaned and kissed tho girl softly,
reverently. upon tho brow.and took the
tiuy gloved hand in her own, and from
that moment the two women were in
perfect loving sympathy.
The winter was a gay one, and Errol
saw little of his adopted daughter.
Sho was a great social success, aud ho
stood and watched her from afar with
infinite pride. He always compelled
himself to keep away from her. lie
was determined not to let his adoption
end as his father predicted.
"It would be disgustingly common
place," he said to himselt, aud then he
would turn to match-making for her
aud ask himself what man he'd like
best to have her marry. The question
was unanswered in his mind perhaps
because he grew irritated over it, per
haps because he thought no one worth'
of her. Anyway, his life seemed aw
fully unsatisfactory, and lonely. Ho
had grown out of caring for women iu
general, and this young girl had been
his object of tenderness and solicitude
many years. He was getting out of
sorts. He thought he'd go abroad in
the spriug. He needed rest and a
change that was all.
As for tho girl herself, she seemed
perfectly contented and light of heart.
Sho had a world of homage at her feet
with this what girl of 18 is not hap
py? To Mrs. Do Lancey she seemed
strangely unimpressionab e, however.
One night as they sat in her boudoir
discussing, as women will, the various
men they knew aud their faults and
virtues, Mrs. De Lancey suddenly
isked: "What do you think of Lyslo
Krrol? 1 never heard you detiue au
opinion of him."
"I don't count him with the men in
society," she replied, evasively.
"But counting him by himself."
"It is hard to' say w hat one thinks
when one thinks so much." Then, as
if determined not to shirk a full answer,
she turned her great eyes on the ques
tioner, her face flushing hotly as tho
words came quickly from her lips: "I
think he is the greatest, noblest man I
ever knew. All men si-em insignificant
beside him. He is handsomer.stronger,
nobler than any other man ever was or
ever could be. I can't say all I think,
but that is a little."
"I was right.' said Lnuiso De Lan
cey to herself, as she dropped in her
downy bed. "They are in love with
The next day when Errol called Mrs.
DeLancey came in first.
"Do you know," she said, incidental
ly, to htm, "I believe Marion is going
to end her season by marrving voung
Varley." 3 " '
"Why do you think so?"
"Oh, well, from things in general.
She seems to like him very much bet
ter than anybody else, and the rich and
good-lookiug are generally attractive."
"He's a confounded ass!"
"Why, I heard you jiraise him."
"Oh, as a society fellow he will do
better than most of them, but he is a
dude, and don't kuow how to caru a
"But he doesn't need to. Ho has
plenty of them all earned for himself."
That's all a woman asks," he re
plied bitterly. "Oh. well, if Marion
wants him she can have him. I have
never objected to her having anything
she wauted yet, and a husband is a ne
cessity to a young woman's social life
sooner or later."
Just then Marion entered the room,
and Mrs. De Lancey excused herself on
account of an engagement.
Errol took her hand caressingly in
his own, ns he had not done since he
began to realize that she v.. is a grown
woman. He drew her down in the
chair by h'w side.
"I'm going to say something to you
that I did not intend to say when I
came," he said, with his eyes bent ten
derly upon her. "I don't know why I
haven't said it long ago. I know it has
been in my Heart to say for a long
time. I love you. I have loved you
so long I can't remember when it com
menced or how. 1 don't want you to
feel obliged to love mo because you
think I have been kind to you. You
hare done everything for me; but for

My father turned mo away penniless
because I determined to adopt you.and
then I had to work for you, and I mado

Her face grew pale and trembled.

"I thought all women did now.

"No. I didu't really think it of you.
