And the mighty city swallowed her. Nearly three months passed before Jock McCall could gain any Inkling as to what had befallen the girl he loved so dearly. A rush order at the mill kept him at work, both day and evening, for a fortnight or more, after be got Amy the job at Peter Jordan's mill. So he was not able to call on her. Ob his first free evening, he has tened to the tiny flat where she and her mother lived. There tfrom a greaay and unbellevaoly fat janl trets. who smelled of bad whisky), be learned that Amy and Mrs. Pren tice had left on the preceding day. They had left an address whither mail might be sent. But the jani tresa, unfortunately, had lost the bit of oaper on which Amy had written it. And she had not bothered to memoriae either the itreet or the number. Jock, in determination, spent every evening roaming the streets on th* chance of catching a glimpse of the girl He made inquiries everywhere. But as he knew none of her family friends, even by name, hl« question? availed him nothing at all. He settled down to a sullen mis ery, yearring unspeakably for sight or word of Amy. He did his work doggedly. And daily his resentment against his father grew hotter and hotter. So matters stood, late one after noon, when he was leaving the mill tor the day. A group of girls were passing out of the employes’ en trance just ahead of him. Unaware of his presence, they were talking and langhing loudly. Presently, a few words caught his ear and roused him la an Instant from spiritless glimasss to feverish interest. A girl ahead of him was saying to another. "—And who do you a’poae it was? Why Amy Prentice! You remember her? Bbe—” The girl broke off with a cry of astonishment, as Jock McCall grip ped her shoulder and swung her around. “Tell me!” he ordered, his voice harsh with excitement. “Tell me about Amy Prentide! Where is sber btanuuertd the scared girl. "I wa* only telling Lulotte, sir. ihai my sis ter was in New York, yesterday, and xhe saw Amy Prentice, a girl who used to work here. That's all I -aid. Mr. McCall.' .‘•Where did *he see her? 1* Miss Prentice living in New York? 'Whereabouts?” persisted Jcck. My bi.-ter don’t know where she lives, there,hesitated the girl, "she Just met her coming out of a theater. And she asked Vniv, ’Don't you re member mo?” and Amy looked kind of embarrassed like anu suid "Yes.' And ray sitter asked her Are you living in New York, now?* Amy said yea she was. And then they got rvtparated in the crowd that wa-* . otuing out of the theater." Jock waited for no more. He started for home, on a run. His heart was beating high, with the flrwt hope that had entered it for months. Not until he hau almost reached the house, did it occur to him that the tnillglil had spoken with an odd reluctance and had teemed 'o be carefully holding back some son of informatlcn. But Jock dismissed this fancy as absurd He was in no mood to ponder over trifle.-, now that the end of his long quest wa.- perhaps in sight. Before his informant bad flni*hed speaking, bis plan 4iad teen formed. On the morrow he would go to New York. He would search high and low. He would hire detectives, if need be. He would visit every em ployment agency, every factory, every big store. for news of her. He would find her. He must find her. One thought consoled him-—Amy could uot be in actual want or she could not have afforded to visit a theater. And the mill girl's sister had seen her coming out of one. Jock’s campaign required money. Without money he could do nothing Straight to hi? fatner he went, on entering the house. "1 have come to a?k jou lor sjoo."sjoo." he said abruptly. "It L a matter of life-or-death for me. Will you let me have it? For heaven's sake, ?ir, don’t refuse! It means everything! Everything"* Jeremiah M Call looked up coldly from the paper he wa? reading. "Have you gone daft?” he queried sourly. "Five hunnred dollar-' Not five hundred pennies shall you have to throw sway on some new light o' love. That's final. When you calm down, you can come in to dinner." Jock M'Call stood very still, for an Instant. And in tho instant, his whole life changed. Jeremiah M’Call had strained his son’s principle? once too often. Without a word the lad turned and left the home. At nervous speed, he retracted his way to the mill. Nodding to the watchman, he strode tnrough the empty building until he reached hi? father** office. Walking directly to the safe, he twirled the knobs. Presently there was a elhk and the Iron doors swung wide. On a shelf lava packet of money he had collect* 1 for bis fath- DETROIT TIMES er. from a customer-lirui. that dav. From the pile he counted out what he needed, pocketed it and closed the safe door. Then, sitt ng at the desk, he scrawled cn a loos* sheet of paper. “Father; "I have laken 1600.
