A nnWILDDlilNO offeh. Elizabeth stood with her handB behind her back, leaning slightly against the writing table. Tho professor, with his broad-brimmed hat cllnchcd'ln his fingers, wnlkcd restlessly up and down tho llttlo room. Tho discussion had not been alto gether n pleasant ono. Elizabeth was composed but 6crlous, her father nervous and excited. "You aro mad, Elizabeth!" he declared. "Is It that you do not understand, or will not7 I tell you that we must go." She shrugged her shoulders. "Where would you drag mo to?" she nsked. "Wo certainly can't go back to Now York." " He turned fiercely upon her. "Whoso fault la It that wo can't?" he demanded. "If It weren't for you nnd your confounded schemes, I could be walking down Broadway1 next week. God's own city It Is, too!" he muttered. "I wish we'd never seen those two young men." "It was n pity, peihaps," she admitted, "yet wo hod to do something. AVo were absolutely ston broke, as they Hay over hero." "Anywny, we've got to get out of this," tho professor declared. "My dear father," Bhe replied, "I will agree that If n new city or a new world could rise from tho bottom of tho sea. whero Professor Franklin was unknown, nnd his beautiful daughter, Elizabeth, had never been heard of, it might per haps bo odvlsablo for us to go there. As it is " "There In Kome," he exclaimed, "or some of tho 'smaller places! Wo havo money for a time. Wo could get another draft, perhaps, from Wcnhnm." She shook her head. "We nro Just as safe hero ns anywhere on the Continent," she remarked. Ho struck tho tablo with the palm of his hand. "As safe here!" ho repeated. "Haven't I told you that Pritchard Is in this very hotel? What does ho want? Ho passed mo an hour ago, patted mo on tho shoulder ourso his Impudence! and asked mo how tho show was going. You saw tho New York Herald? They actually hinted that tho Gardner family had sent him over to find Wenham." Sho laughed hardly. "Well. If Pritchard wants us, sho ac knowledged, "It won't be much use our hurrying away." "He'll find Wenham," the professor de declared. "He'll hunt him out, somehow or other." "I nm not afraid of Wenham," Eliza beth said slowly. "There was a time when he camo to me with murder In his heart, the first time when he began to understand. There was no one else about, wo were absolutely alone. I said nothing, I never raised my finger. Wenham came as close to mo as you aro now, nnd I looked at him." "Well?" demanded the professor, breathlessly, ... ., ., ,. "He drew a lone breath and then his hands fell to his side," she continued, "Afterwards he sobbed a little nnd be came quite reasonable.

If you are afraid, you can have half the money we havo left, and go where you will." Ho sat down, wringing his hands help lessly. "My child," he exclaimed, "you know very well that I dare not go alonol My nerves are In such a state, It would not bo possible." "Then stay," she told him briefly. "It chokes me," ho went on. looking nt her fearfully, "this atmosphere, the feeling that Pritchard Is watching nil the time, wondering what we have done with Wcnhnm, wondering whero our money comes from. Elizabeth, what Is there In London that holds you?" "My vanity, perhaps," she laughed "Anyhow, I mean to stay," The telephone on the table rnng. She look up tho receiver. "You can send tho young man up In Ave minutes," she said. "Who Is It?" her father asked. "The vouni- man who called tho other dny," sho repllod-"Mr. Tavernake." The professor's faco darkened. "Again!" he exclaimed. "What does ho want, that young man? What havo you to do with him? You do not want a flat, you do not want a house. It Is nil a bluff, this. What use Is he? What pur pose can ho servo?" Sho Bmlled at him tolerantly, as one might smllo at nn angry child. No line of her features betrayed nny senso of nnnoyanco or even Impatlono. "My dear father," sho answered, "you cannot possibly understand tho reason for everything I do. Why worry about this unfortunate young man?" Onco moro ho Btruck tho table Thon he threw out his hands above his head with the melodramatic Instinct which had always been otrong In his blood. "Do you think that I am a fool7" he cried. "Do you think I do not know that If there wero no' something moving In jour brain you would think no moro of that clerk, that bourgeois estate agent, than of tho door-mat beneath your feet? It Is what I always complain nbout. You make use of mo ns a tool. There ore always things which I do not understand. Ho comes here, this young mnn, under a pretext, whether he knows It or not. You talk to him for an hour at a time. Thoro Hhould be nothing In your life which I do not know of, Elizabeth," ho continued, his volco suddenly hoarBo as he leaned to ward her. "Can't you see that there Is dnngcr In friendships for you and for me, there Is danger In Intimacies of any sort? I Bhare the danger: I have a right to shnro the knowledge. This oung man has no money of his own. I tnko It. Of what use Is he to us?" "You aro too hasty, my dear father," sho replied. "Let mo assure you that there Is nothing at all mysterious about Mr. Tavernake. Tho simple truth Is that the young man rather nttrncts me." Tho professor gazed at her incredu lously. Attracts you! He!" "You havo never perfectly understood me, my dear parent," sho murmured. "You have nover appreciated that trait In my character, that strange preference. If you like, for tho absolutely original. Now In all my life I never met such a young man as this. Ho wears tho clothes and he has the features and speech of Just such a person as you have described, but thero Is a difference." "A difference, Indeed!" the professor In terrupted roughly. "What difference, I should like to know?" She shrugged her shoulders lightly "He Is stolid without being stupid," she explained. "Ho Is entirely self-centered. I smile nt him, and he waits patiently until I have finished to get on with our business. I have Bald quite nlco things to him nnd ho has stared at me without change of expression, absolutely without pleasure or emotion of any sort" "You aro too vain, Elizabeth," her father declared. "You have been spoilt. Thero ore a few people In the world whom even you might fall to charm. No doubt thin young man Is one of them." She sighed gently. "It really does seem," she admitted, "as though you were right, but we shall see. By-thc-by, hadn't you better go? The flvo minutes are nearly up." He came over to her side, his hat and gloves In his hand, I prepared for do oarture. "Will you tell me, upon your honor, Elizabeth," he begged, "that thero Is no other reason for your Interest? That you are not engaged In any fresh schemes of which I know nothing? Things nre bad enough as they are. I cannot steep, I cannot rest, for thinking of our posi tion. If I thought that you had any fresh plans on hand " She flicked the ash from her cigarette and checked him with a little gesture. "He knows where Beatrice Is," she re marked thoughtfully, "and I can't get run smoothert easier. 1 him to tell me. There Is nothing beyond lhat-absoluUily nothing." When Tavernake was announced, Eliza beth was still nmoklng, sitting In an easy chair and looking Into tho fire. Some thing In her attitude, tho droop of her head ns It rested upon her fingers, re minded him suddenly of Beatrice. Ho showed no other emotion than a sudden pause In his walk across the room. Even that, however, In a person whose mochtne-llke attltudo toward her pro voked her resentment, was noticeable. "Good morning, my friend!" she Bald pleasantly. "Tou have brought me the fresh list?" "tfnfortuntaety. no, madam," Taver nake answered. "I have called simply to announce that I am not ablo to be of any further assistance to you In the matter." She looked at him for a moment without remnrk. i "Aro you serious, Mr. Tavernake?" sho asked. M'os," he replied. "The fact Is I nm not In n position to help you. I hnvo left tho employ of Messrs. Bowling, Spcnco & Company." "Of your own accord?" sho Inquired quietly. "No, I was dlflmlssed," ho confessed. "I should havo been compelled toVlenvo In a very nhort time, but Mr. Dowllng forestalled me." "Won't you sit down nnd tell mo about It?" sho Invited. Ho looked her in tho eyes, squaro and unflinching. Ua wns ntlll able to do thatt "It could not possibly Interest you," he said. "And my sister? You have seen her?" "I hnvo seen your sister," Tavcrnnko answered, without hesitation. "You have a messago for mo?" "None," ho declared. "She refuses to bo reconciled, then?" "I nm afraid she haa no friendly feelings toward you." "Sho gavo you no reason?" "No direct reason," he ndmltted, "but her attitude Is quite uncompromising " She rose and swept ncrons tho floor to ward him. With firm but gentlo Angers she took his worn bowler hat and mended gloves from his hand Her gesturo gullded him toward a sofn. "Beatrice has prejudiced jou against me," she murmured. "It Is not fair. Please como nnd sit down for five minutes," sho pleaded. "I want you to tell mo why you havo quarrolcd with that funny little man, Mr. Dowllng." "But, madam " ho protested. "If you refuse, I shall think that my sinter has been telling you stories about me," Bhe declared, watching him closely. Tavernake drew a little away from her, but seated himself o.i tho sofa which she had Indicated. He took up as much room as possible, and to his relief alio did not persist In her first Intention, which wns obviously to seat herself bosldo him. "Your sister has told mo nothing nbout you whatsoever," he said deliberately. "At the sama time, sho asked me not to give you her nddress." "We will talk nbout that presently.1' she Interrupted. "In tho first place, tell me why you havo left your place." "Mr. Dowllng discovered," ho told her. In a mntter-of-fact tone, "that I had been doing some business on my own account. Ho wns qulto right to disapprove. I have not been back to tho ofllce slnco he found It out." "What sort of business?" sho asked. "Tho business of tho firm Is to Jjuy property in undeveloped districts and sell it for building estate." he explained "I have been very successful hitherto In find ing sites for their operations. A short tlmo ago I discovered ono so good that I Invested all my own savings In buying ccrtnln lots, and havo an option upon tho I Added ToM This She wanted a home of her own her hus band's income was small so with woman's ingenuity she got an idea.

She explains it herself in the great series, "How I Helped My Husband to Make More Money," in the March LADIES' HOME JOURNAL Fifteen Gents a Copy, of All News Agents V TAVERNAKE 7 whole. Mr. Dowllng found It out and dismissed me." "But It seems most unfair," she de clared. "Not at all." he answered. "In Mr. Dowllng's place I should havo dono tho same thing. Every one with his way In life to mako must look out for himself, Strictly speaking, what I did waa wrong. I wish, however, that I had done It be fore. Ono must think of ono's self first" "And now?" sho. Inquired. "What aro you going to do now?" "I nm going to find a capitalist or float a company to buy tho rest of tho site," ho nnnounccd. "After that, wo must sco about building. Thoro In no hurry about that, though. Tho first thing Is to securo the site." "How much money does It require?" About twlevo thousand pounds," ho told her. "It seems very little," sho murmured. "Th i need for money comes afterward," ho explained. "Wo want to drain and plnn and build without mortgages. As soon as wo aro suro of tho Bite, ono can think of that. My option only extend for a week or bo." "Do you really think that 'It Is a. good speculation?" sho asked. "I do not think about such matters," he answered, drily. "I know." Sho leaned back In her chair, wntchlng him for several seconds-ndmlrlng him, as n matter of fact. Tho profound con viction of his words was nlmost Inspiring. In her presonce, nnd sho knew that sho was a very beautiful woman, ho appeared, notwithstanding hla absence of any knowledge of her sex nnd his lack of Boclnl stntus, unmoved, wholly undis turbed. He sat thero In perfect natural nctis. It did not seem to him oven un accountable that sho should bo Interested In hla concerns. Ho was not conceited or aggressive In nny way. His complete self-confidence Incited any militant Im pulse He was himself, Impervious to surroundings, however unusual. "Why should I not bo your capitalist?" sho Inquired slowly. "Hnve jou ns much ns twelve thousand pounds that you want to Invest?" he nuked, incredulously. She roso to her feet nnd moed across to her desk. Ho sat qulto still, watching her without nny apparent curiosity. SIvj unlocked n drawer nnd returned to him with a bankbook In hor hand. "Add that up," she directed, "and tell me how much I have." Ho drew n lead pencil from his pocket nnd quickly added up tho total. "If you havo not given nny cheques slnco this was made up," he said calmly, "you havo a credit balance of thirteen thousand, one hundred nnd eighteen pounds, nine shillings nnd fourpence. It Is very foolish of you to keep so much money on current nccount. You are ab solutely losing nbout eight pounds a week." Sho smiled. "It Is foolish of me, I suppose," sho ad mitted, "but I havo no ono to advise me Just now. My father knows no more about money than a child, and I have Just had qulto a large amount paid to me in ensh. I only wish wo could get Beatrice to share somo of this, Mr. Taver nake." He made no remark. To all appearance, he had nevor heard of her sister. She camo nnd sat down by his Bide again. "Will you havo mo for a partner, Jilr. Tuvernako?" she whispered. Then, Indeed, for a moment, tho Im passivity of his features relaxed. He was frnnkly amazed. "You ennnot mean this," he declared. "You Know nothing about tho valuo of tho proporty, nothing about the affair at all. It Is quite Impossible" 'I know what you havo told me," sho y Husband's Income: is How Or, $1.50 a Year (12 issues ) by Mail, Ordered ,TtfE CURTIS SPUBLISHING COMPANY Independence Square; PJiiladelplua, Pennsylvania said, "Is not that enough? You nro sure that It will make monoy and you have Just totd mo how foolish I nm to keep ro much money In my bank. Very well, then, I give It U you to Invest. You must pay me qulto a good deal of In terest." "But you know nothing nbout me," lie protested, nothing nbout the property. "Ono must trust somebody," she replied. "Why shouldn't I trust you?" He wan nonplussed, This woman seemed to havo an nnswer for everything. Be sides, when once ho had got over tho unexpectedness of tho thing, It was, of course, a wonderful stroke of rortuno for him. Then camo a whole rush of thoughts, a glow which he thrust back sternly. It would mean seeing her often; It would mean coming hero to her rooms! it would mean, perhaps, that she might como to look upon him ns a friend. Ho set his teeth hard, Tills was follyl "Have you nny Idea about terms?" he Inquired. She laughed softly. "My dear friend," she said, "why do you ask mo such a question? You know qulto well thnt I am not competent to discuss terms with you, Listen. You nre engaged In n speculation to carry out which you want tho loan of twelve thousnnd pounds. Draw up a paper In which you stato what my slmro will bo of tho profits, what Interest I shall get for my money, nnd glvo particulars of tho property. Thon I will take It to my solicitor. If you Insist upon It, although I am willing to accept what you think Is fair." "You must tnko It to n solicitor, of course," ho nnswered, thoughtfully. "I may ns well tell you at onco, however, that ho will probably advise you against Investing It In such n way." Vhat will mako no difference at nil," oho declared. "Solicitors hate all Invest ments, I know, except their horrid mort gages. There are only two conditions that I shall make." "What nro they?" ho asked. "The first is that you must not say a word of this to my sister." Tnvcrnnko frowned. "That is a little difficult." he remarked. "It happens that your Bister knows some thing nbout the estate nnd my plans." "There IS no need to tell her tho nnmo of your partner," Elizabeth said. "I want this to bo our secret entirely, yours and mine." Her hand fell upon his; ho gripped tho Bides of his chnlr. Again he was eon bcIous of this bowllderlng, incomprehen sible sensation. "And the other condition?" he de manded, hoarsely. v "That you como sometimes and tell me how things aro going on." "Como here?" he repeated. Sho nodded. "PlenBe! I am very lonely. I shall took forward to your visits." Tnvcrnako roso slowly to his feet. He held out his hand sho knew hotter than to attempt to keep him. Ho made a speech which was for him gallant, but whllo ho mado It ho looked Into hor eyes with n. directness to which she was In deed unaccustomed. "I Bhall como," he said. "I should havo tvanted to come, anyhow." Then ho turned abruptly away and loft (ho room. It was the first speech of Its sort which he had ever made In his life. (Continued Tomorrow.)
