He was appointed to the department March 1, 1864, as assist ant teller in the treasurer's office. Gen. P. E.

Mr. True tells of the great demand for fractional currency soon after the close of the civil war. He stated recently that about that time the demand for this money was so great that only $5 worth was given to any one Individual, and that the line of persons wanting it stretched from the cashier's window in the Treas ury Department to what is now the Wil lard Hotel. The money was printed in sheets and given out in that form. Mr. True Is one of the few persons now living who were In Ford's Theater at the time of the assassination of Presi dent Lincoln. He bias been married twice. His first wife died about eight or nine years ago. He was married the second time about five or six years ago and his second wife also died.

Copyright 1910, by Doubled*/, Page tc Company Copyright, 100S, by the MeClure Company. CHAPTER XXXVIII?Continued. your own absconding? valet sailing under false colors. He didn't say it wouldn't be you. and he supposed that his friends would simply hang- back for a few days, making no sign, thus giving you to think that you weren't as important in America as you'd fancied. He imagined, too, that the heiress business wouldn't come oft quite as easily as you expected, and that altogether you might be a little sobered down. Ab for your trouble with the bank, we know now that this is what happened: It turns out that Henry van Cotter has lately become a partner in the hank which corresponds with yours in London, and having got Jim's wire about the valet (probably at the same time when Instruc tions arrived from the Txrndon and South ern), nati**ally he told his people to be prepared and not to pay. How could Jinj think of such a thing happening?or that Mr. van Cotter and the others would run about gossiping of what he told them as a mere supposition? It must have been too dreadful for you at the hotel!?and as for that Mr. Milton, I'm sure he is a horror. "Then, it was another contretemps that neither Jim nor I saw the newspapers at first. We'd gone off on a motor trip, as the weather was lovely, and were darting all about Cornwall and Wales. starting | so early every morning and not arriving at hotels till so late at night, that we | didn't bother with the papers for nearly : a week. Of course, the minute Jim knew ! what had been going on hp wired every j where and wrote long letters of explana tion. too (a .little earlier than he'd origi nally meant), to put an end to the mis understanding he'd set in motion. But meanwhile you'd disappeared from New York. Poor dear, my heart quite bleeds I for you! And yet?and yet?I wonder if all that you've gone through Is entirely a matter for regret?" It was here, after the "Affectionate, Cousin Betty" signature, that the other handwriting began. "I wonder, too? I want to know what you think about it. Now it's all ex plained, and you see just where and how much I'm to blame for what's past, you may or may not be inclined to forgive me for trying to play Providence, that good might comti of evil. But if there are any things which you don't regret, per-; haps you'll partly understand?yourself and me. Anyhow, I apologise, having now done my best to atone, in case you want to go back to New York in a blaze of glory and be made a lion of. Mean while. I await your verdict, and am?as the writers of anonymous letters are sup posed to sign themselves?'your friend and wellwisher.' Jim." Again fate had "taken a hand in the game" and \?sed MIfs Moon as catspaw. ! Into the fire in her bodroom at Bonners town want all those elaborate explana tions; and !.oveland did not dream that ho had only to communicate with the bank in New York to receive apologies and a sum of money which, after his vicissitudes, would have seemed a for tune. He had not even a prophetic1 "pricking in his thumbs" while his moth er's post office order for three hundred dollars ?sixty pounds?gayly burned in a Bonnerstown stove. He had no suspicion j that New York society?or an important j section of it?was wearing: sackcloth and i ashes on his account. No instinct told him that even while the letters and money order were being reduced to ashes Tony Kidd was concocting a glorious "story"' about the Marquis of Ix>veland, which would ring through the country: neither did he know that Lesley Dearmer, whether believing him a genuine article or not, hail sent him an anonymous do nation which lay unclaimed at the Wal dorf* A storia. Of all these things was he ignorant, and Lesley (sure that he had never received her offering) would have seen Sidney Cremer's forty-horsepower Gloria burnt before her eyes rather than confess what she had done. Nevertheless, she was en joying herself very much, and if Cremer's chauffeur went about with an unsmiling face it did not depress her spirits, unless for a minute at a time, when she was particularly and foolishly soft hearted. ?She knew that all the chauffeur's bodily wants were being well cared for at the Hill Farm. He had a comfortable bed room and a little sitting room attached. In the far corner of the west wing, which was the newest part of the old red brick house. She did not suggest his wearing the costume of a chauffeur, but sent him by Uncle Wally a fur-lined overcoat and motoring cap, which, she said. Sidhey Cremer had ordered for the future driver of his car. .Mr. Gordon's meals were served in his own small sitting room, and he had plenty of hooks to read. Had it not been that Miss Dearmer wished to drive .(.'renier's automobile. Val would have seen little of her. but she took two lessons a day. Her aunt. Mrs. Loveland, sat in the tonneau, dutifully, perhaps cheerfully, playing the part of chaperon, after Les ley had experimented a little and become proficient enough not to be a public dan ger. But the girl sat in the driver's seat with Mr. Cremer's temporary chauffeur beside her. and they coukl talk of what they chose (If they chose to talk at all) without being overheard by Aunt Barbara in the snug shelter of the limousine. Loveland wrote to the theater at Bon nerstown, asking the manager to forward anything that might arrive; but days passed on and nothing came. This was not strange, considering Miss Moon's bold treatment of Bill's fat envelope with Its important contents. But it seemed strange to Loveland, who had allowed more than enough time for letters to his mother and Betty Harborough to be answered and forwarded. , Everything in his life of late was so extraordinary, however, that to find his expectations fulfilled in a commonplace way would have surprised him almost : more than having them blighted, i Besides. Ms disappointment at pot hear j ing from home was not as poignant as it i had been. H# had kept ten dollars for himself out of his advance of salary, therefore he was not entirely penniless, and he had few, if any, expenses at the Hill Farm, where ail his needs were aa carefully considered as If he had been a member of the family. Though Sidney Cremer's speedy arrival dangled over his head like a sharp sword, which might fall at any moment and cut short the thread of his happiness, while it lasted the thread was of glistening gold. He could not l?e sure whether Lesley Dearmer believed in him as I^ord Love land. or whether she really thought him a repentant impostor, whom she was he friending and trying to reform: but she was unvaryingly kind, and the subject of his true Identity was. not further dis cussed. He was too proud to allude to and force it upon her, after the doubts which she had hinted, and she seemed to have no wish to bring it up. to that su eet and kindly lady who was chaperon and aunt, she appeared to take Mr. Gor don trustfully for granted as an unfortu nate but talented young gentleman, res cued from a run of bad luck. She spoke to him pleasantly when necessary, asked polite questiona now and then about the car. or his personal comfort in the house, but otherwise seemed to regard him with no very.lively interest. T.<esley was everything to her. She adored Lesley, and whatever Lesley did or wished to do was perfect in her eyes. Therefore it was not odd that she should accept the transplanted actor as "one of Lesley's lucky finds.'" In the house he and Mies Dearmer had no intercourse, and he did not even know what the girl's daily occupations were or what visitors she saw. But at least three hours out of every twenty-four gave her to him as an intimate companion, near in mind and body; therefore, until the hateful Cremer should fall out of a clear Bky, Val was not eager for home news which would leave no excuse for lingering At this old homestead in the blue grass country. Though he was a paid employe, the Hill Farm seemed to Mm the pleasantcst place in which he had ever lived, not excepting any splendid and well ordered country mansion where he had been a flattered member of a house party. Ways at the Hill Farm were simple 1 ways, and there was no grandeur, tio dis play in the quaint, rambling red brick house. All the servant* were colored, j and were either elderly men and women who had served "the family" before the war which freed them from slavery, or else young, happy-go-lucky sons and j daughters of the old servitors. There 1 were a great many of them about the place, indoors and out. so many that Loveland could hardly tell one face from another, but they were all kindly, dark facet*, that brightened Into glittering grins at sight of the English chauffeur. Everything was done on a lavish, though far from pretentious, scale, but the or dering of the establishment might mean wealth, or might mean no more, than a comfortable competence. The furniture was good and in the best of taste, but it was almost all antique, brought from England by ancestors of Mrs. Loveland's or Lesley Dearmer's, perhaps, in that good time when tJhlppenda.e and Shera ton treasures were regarded as ordinary possessions. In the stables were a couple of beauti ful hunters, Lesley's property, for Love land soon discovered that a true daughter of Kentucky considers it a disgrace to the county for every girl not to be a fearless and accomplished rider. There were two fat old carriage horses, also, and other animals for the I'arm work, which was carried on by a middle-aged married cou ple. Altogether it was clear that Mrs. Milton's and Cadwallader Hunter's esti mate of the ladies' circumstances had been unjust. Mrs. Love and and her niece were not "teachers taking a holiday while their money lasted." Perhaps the farm and the money were all Mrs. Love land's; but Lesley had told Val on ship board that Bhe earned enough for self support by writing stories. Therefore, she was not in any case entirely depend ent upon her aunt, and it was evident that the girl and the elderly lady were very content in that stale of life to which It had pleased God to call them. It seemed to Val that Lesley was al- j ways happy; and because she was happy herself she could not hear to see others sad or unfortunate. Though she asked no questions afout her chauffeur's Eng lish past, she showed frank interest in his American experiences. She led him on, as they spun through the country Fide J by side, to tulk of Bill Willing, of Lillie di' Lisle, of Ed Kinney and even of I?i dora. the almond-eyed. Of tlie lire at Alexander the Great's she had read in the papers, and she deigned a few words of praise for Loveland's behavior. She was curious, also, to hear "what happened afterward": and though Val was silent as to Isldora's part in his next move, wom an's wit supplied the missing link. Too delicate minded to put her sus picions into words, Lesley, nevertheless, contrived tactfully to pluck from Love land some scanty information concerning Miss Alexander's semi-engagement to the Jewish commercial traveler. "She'll never marry him," the girl an nounced authoritatively. "I wish I could think you were right," I said Loveland. "Poor Isldora has a j | warm, generous heart, and it would be a j beastly shame to waste her on the oily ( i creature. But Alexander's hard to beat j once he makes up his mind." "When T first knew 3'ou it wouldn't j I have occurred to you that the affairs of ! j a common little person like that might | be worth bothering about!" exclaimed j Lesley. "But now 1 believe you're really < interested." "I really am," admitted Val. "I hope j that doesn't disgust you?" "Exactly the other way." Lesley as sured him. "But you needn't'be anxious. An only daughter, spoilt ' by her father, ] is just as 'hard to beat' a the most ob stinate and tyrannical parent. Isidora won't marry the Coh^u man?after all that's happened. She won't marry any one, for a good long time, but by and by she will, and then it will be somebody of her own choosing, not her father's." "What makes you think so?" asked Loveland. "Oh?because I'm a woman myself." And then she would say no more on that subject: but she talked eagerly of Bill Willing and his star. . Sidney Cremer would play fairy god-1 father to the two. she said, speaking with i that happy certainty of her lover's mind which invariably depressed and irritated j Loveland. There were numerous country com- < panies "on the road" touring with Sid- j ney's pieces in very good towns. Sidney i would take "Mr. Gordon's" word for j Lillie de Lisle's ability as a soubrette, and would offer her a part shortly to be I open, owipg to the marriage of the girl i now playing it. As for "that perfect; lamb of a Bill," a place should be found for him in the same company, that I*?h ley would promise. He could travel as a sort of handy man. to repaint and freshen up the scenery, and as Sidney would doubtless guarantee the pair a permanent engagement together, they could marry at once on the strength of It. "You had better wait and hear what Mr. f'remer says." suggested Loveland. almost bitterly, when Lesley had instruct ed him to write the good news at once to Lillie and Bill. Ed Bituiey was also to be provided for, sent to a convalescent home, and given hope for a chance as "property man" ?with one of Sidney's piays when he should be strong enough to go on tour again. "Oh, Sidney and I always think alike. Haven't I told you that before?" was Lesley's answer. "There's no need to wait. I know all about Sidney's business. And I thought it would be a pleasure to you to write and be the means of making your friends happy." "So it would, if I were the means," muttered Loveland. "But I'm not. It's Mr. Sidney Cremer. Everything is Sidney Cremer and he is everything." "Some day I may remind you of.ttat speech," said Lesley. Then she lauAfed In a mysterious little way she had. But ehe was determined that Loveland should write the letters she desired written: and learning the lesson of unselfishness, he tried, to rejoice sincerely in his friends' gooo luck. "It's a long lane that has no turning," he said to himself as he sealed letters which would change the face of the world for three persons. "Their turning hax come at last and I'm glad. But my lane ! is blocked. Whatever happens that brute j Sidney Cremer will always stand at. the j end and bar my way out."
