gorging. The little tables were all
occupied with the usual before dinner
crowd.
Fascinated by the gay scene around
lilin. Jefferson laid the newspaper
aside. To the young American, fresh
from prosaic money mad New York,
the City of I'lcasure presented indeed
a novel and beautiful spectacle. How
different, be mused, from his own
city with one fashionable thorough
fare Fifth avenue monotonously
lined for miles with hideous brown
stone residences and showing little
real animation except during the
Saturday afternoon parade when the
activities of the smart set, male and
female, centered chiefly In such ex
citing diversions as going to lluyler's
for soda, taking tea at the Waldorf
and trying to outdo each other In ilress
and show. New York certainly was a
dull place with all Its lwasted cosmo
politanism.
It was true, he thought, the foreigner
had Indeed learned the secret of enjoy
ing life. There was assuredly some
thing else l:i the world beyond mere
money getting. His father was a
slave to It. but he would never l»e. He
was resolved 011 that. Yet, with all his
Ideas of emancipation and progress,
Jefferson was a thoroughly practical
young man. He fully understood the
value of money, and the possession of
It was as sweet to him as to other
men. Only he would never soil his
soul in acquiring it dishonorably.
No, Jefferson was no fool. He loved
money for what pleasure, intellectual
or physical, it could give him, but he
would never allow money to dominate
his life as his father had done. His fa
ther, he knew well, was not a happy
limn, neither happy himself nor re
spected by the world, lie had tolled
all his life to make his vast fortune,
uud now he toiled to take care of it.
The galley slave led a life of luxurious
ease compared with John liurkett Ity
der. Halted by the yellow* newspapers
and magazines, investigated l«y state
committees, dogged by process serv
ers, haunted by lieggurs, harassed by
blackmailers, threatened by kidnapers,
frustrated In his attempts to bestow
charity by the cry "tainted money,'*
i?rtainly the lot of the world's richest
man was far from being an enviable
one.
That Is why Jefferson had resolved
to strike out for himself. lie had
warded off the golden yoke which his
father proposed to put on his should
ers, declining the lucrative position
made for him in the Kuipire Trading
company, and he had gone so far as to
refuse also the prhate Income his fa
ther offered to settle on him. lie
would earn his own living. A man
who has his bread buttered for him
seldom accomplishes anything, he had
said, and, while his father had appear
ed to be anery at this open opposition
to his will, he was secretly pleased at
his son's grit. Jefferson was thorough
ly in earnest. If needs l>e he would
forego the great fortune that await
ed him rather than be forced into
que ti"iiable business methods against
which his whole manhood revolted.
11 Ityd-r felt strongly about

Aery - >on tli - y-uns artist, who had
hi . i his career of independence oil
nothing a year, so t i speak, found him
self in a handsomely appointed studio
la ltryant park, with more orders com
ing in than he could possibly till and
enjoying an income of little less than
S.VHMJ a year. The money was all the
sweeter to Jefferson In that he felt he
had himself earned every cent of it.
This summer he was giving himself a
well deserved vacation, and lie hail
come to Europe partly to see Paris and
the other art centers about which his
fellow students ut the academy raved,
but principally although this ho dhl
not acknowledge even to himself to
meet In Paris a young woman in
whom he was more than ordinarily In
terested Shirley Kossniore. daughter
of Judge Kossmore of the I" lilted
States supreme court, who had come
abroad to recuperate after the labors
on her new novel, "The American Oc
topus," a book which was then the
talk of two hemispheres.
Jefferson had read half a dozt n re
views of it in as many American pa
pers that afternoon at the New York
Herald's reading room In the Avenue
de I'Opeia. and lie chuckled with glee
as he thought how accurately this
young woman had described his fa
ther. The book had been published un
der the pseudonym "Shirley (Jreen,"
and he alo, e had been admitted into
the secret of authorship. The critics
all conceded that it was the book of
the year, and that It portrayed with
a pitiless pen the personalty of the
biggest ligure in the commercial life
of America. "Although." wrote one
reviewer, "the leading character in the
1100k Is given another name, there can
be 110 doubt that the author intended
to give to the world a vivid pen portrait
of John Rurkeit Ityder. She has suc
ceeded iu presenting a remarkable
character study of the most remarka
ble man of his time."
lie was particularly pleased with the
reviews, not nuly for Miss Kossmore's
sake, but also because his own vanity
was gratified. Had he not collabor
nted on tlie book to t!ie extent of ae
i|iiainting the author with details of
his father's life and Ills character
istics which no outsider could possi
bly have learned? 'l'here had heen no
disloyalty to his father In doing this.
Jefferson admired his father's smart
ness, if lie could not approve his
methods. He did not consider the liook
an attack on his father, hut rather a
powerfully written pen picture of an
extraordinary man.
The acquaintance of his son with the
daughter of Judge Itossniare had not
escaped the eagle eye of Ityder, Sr.,
and much to the financier's annoyance
and even consternation lie had ascer
tained that Jefferson was a frequent
caller at the ltossmore home. He im
mediately Jumped to the conclusion
that this could mean only one thing,
ami fearing what he termed "the con
sequences of tne Insanity or Immature
minds." he had summoned Jefferson
peremptorily to his presence. He told
his son that all idea of marriage In
that quarter was out of the question
for two reasons: One was that Judge
ltossmore was his most hitter enemy,
the other was that he had hoped to see
his son, his destined successor, marry
a woman of whom he, Ityder, Sr., could
approve. He knew of such a woman,
one who would make a far more de
sirable mate than .Mi ; Kossmore. He
alluded, of course, to Kate Itoberts,
the pretty daughter of his old friend,
the senator. The family interests
would lienefit by this alliance, which
was desirable from every point of
view.
Jefferson had listened respectfully
until his father had finished and then
grimly remarked that only one point
of view had Iteen overlooked—his own.
He dhl not care for Miss Roberts; he
diil not think she really cared for him.
The marriage was out of the question.
Whereupon ityder. Sr.. had fumed and
raged, declaring that Jefferson was op
posing his will as lie always did, and
ending with the threat that If his son
married Shirley ltossmore without his
consent he would disinherit him.
Jefferson was cogitating on these in
cidents of the last few months when
suddenly a feminine voice which he
quickly recognized called out hi Eng
lish:
"Hello! Mr. Ityder."
He looked up and saw two ladles,
one young, the other middle aged, smil
ing at him from an open fiacre which
had drawn up to the curb. Jefferson
Jumped from his seat, upsetting his
chair and startling two nervous
Frenchmen In his hurry, and hastened
out, hat in hand.
"Why, Miss ltossmore, what are you
doing out driving?" he asked. "You
know you and Mrs. Itlake promised
to dine with me tonight. I was coin
ing round to the hotel in a few mo
ments."
Mrs. Wake was a younger sister of
Shirley's mother. Her husband had
died a few years previously, leaving
her .1 small Income, and when she had
heard of her niece's contemplated trip
to Kurope she had decided to come to
I'aris to meet her and incidentally to
chaperon her. 'i he two women were
stopping at the (Jraud Hotel close by,
while Jefferson had found accommoda
tions at the Athenee.
Shirley explained. Her aunt wanted
to go to the dressmaker's, and she her
self was most anxious to g, to the
Luxembourg Gardens to hear the mu

Shirley was not beautiful, but hers '
\\as JI face tlmt never failed t.> attract
attention. It was a thoughtful ami in
terestlug face, with an intellectual
l't"ow ami law, expressive eyes, the
face of a woman who had both lirain
power ami ideals, and jet who, at the
same time, was in perfect sympathy
with the world. She was fair in com
plexion, and her tine brown eyes, alter
nately reflective and alert, were shad
ed by lons dark lashes. Her eyebrows
were delicately arched, and she h:nl a

the forehead, which was broader than

and carried herself with that unmis 1

dressed stylishly, and. while her gowns j
were of rich material and of a cut
surest lug expensive modistes, she ;
was always so quietly attired and l:i
such perfect taste that after leaving
her one could never recall what she i
had on.
"Tell me." she repeated, "what do
the papers say ab.mt the lunik?"
"Say?" he echoed. "Why, simply
that you've written the biggest t»ooU
or the year, that's all:"
"Really! Oil. do tell me all they
said!" She was fairly excited now,
and in her enthusiasm she grasped
Jefferson's broad, sunburnt hand which
was l*imr outside the carriage rug.
He tried to appear unconscious of the
contact, which made his every nerve
tingle, as lie proceeded to tell her the
gist of the reviews he had read that
afternoon.
"Isn't that splendid?" she exclaimed
when he had finished. Then she added
cjuii kly:
"1 wonder if your father has seen It."
Jefferson grinned. lie had some
thing on his conscience, and this was
a good opportunity to rid of It.
lie replied laconically:
"He prvbably has read It by this
time. I sent him a copy myself."
The Instant the words were out of
his mouth he was sorry, for Shirley's
face had changed color.
"You sent him a copy of 'The Amer
ican Octopus V " she cried. "Then h.-'ll
guess who wrote the book."
"Oh. 110, he won't," rejoined Ji'ffer
son calmly, "lie has n<> Idea who sent
It to him. I mailed It anonymously.''
Shirley breathed a sigh of relief. It
was so Important that her Identity
should remain a secret. As daughter
of a supreme court judge she had to lie
most cart ful. She would not embar
rass her father for anything in the
world.
Suddenly Jefferson asked her:
"Have you heard from home recent
ly?"
"I had a letter from father last week.
Kverytliing was going < n at home as
when 1 left. Father says he misses
me sadly and that mother I; ailing, as
usual."
She smiled, and Jefferson Mailed too.
They both knew by experience that
nothing really serious ailed Mis ltoss
more, who was a good deal of a hypo
chondriac and always so filled with
aches and pains that 011 the few occa
siotis when she really felt well she was
genuinely alarmed.
The cab stopped suddenly In front
of beautiful gilded gates. It was the
Luxembourg, and through tlie tall rail
ings they caught a glimpse of well
kept lawns, splashing fountains and
richly dressed children playing. From
the distance came the stirring strains
of a brass baud.
The coachman drove up to the curb,
and Jefferson jumped down, assisting
Shirley to alight.
They entered the gardens, following
the .sweet scented paths until they
came to where the music was. The
band of an Infantry regiment wns play
ing, and a large crowd had gathered.
Many people were sitting mi the chairs
provided for visitors for the modest fee
of two sous; others were promenading
round and roiind a great circle having
the musicians In its center. The dense
foliage of the trees overhead afforded
a perfect shelter from the hot rays of
the sun, and the place was so Inviting
anil Interesting, so cool and so full of
sweet perfumes and sounds, appealing
to anil satisfying the senses, that Shir
ley wished they had more time to
spend there.
"Isn't It delightful here?" said she.
"I ci ulil stay here forever, couldn't
you?"
"V. I'll you—yes," answered Jeffer
son, with a significant smile.
Shirley tried to look angry. She
strictly discouraged these convention
al, sentimental speeches Tvhicli con
stanily Hung her sex in her face.
"Now. you know I don't like you to
talk that way, Mr. lixder. It's most
undignified. Please lie sensible."
Quite SUIMIUCII, Jefferson relapsed
into a sulky silence. Presently he
said:
"I wish you wouldn't call me Mr.
liyder. I meant to ask you tills before.
You know very well that you've no
great love for the name, and If you
persist you'll end by inch'iling me in
your hatred of the hero ftf your lunik. "*
Shirley looked at him with amused
curiosity.
"What do you mean," she asked.

"< )h, I don't know." lie stammered,
rather intimidated t>y this self |H>S
sessed young woman, who looked him
calmly through and through. "Why
not call me .Ic.Terson? Mr. ISyder Is
so formal."
Shirley laughed outright, a merry,
unrestrained peal of honest laughter,
which made the passersby turn tholr
heads and smile, too, commenting the
while on the stylish appearance of the
two Americans whom they took for
sweethearts. After nil, reasoned Shir
lev, lie was right. They had been to
gether now nearly every hour In tlie
day for over a month. It was absurd
to call him Mr. Ilyder. So. addressing
him with mock gravity, she said:
"You're right, Mr. Kyder I mean
JefTcrson. You're quite right. You are
Jefferson from this time on. only re
member" here she shook her gloved
finger at him wamingly "mind you
behave yourself! No more such senti
mental speeches ns you innde Just
now."
Jefferson lieameil. lie felt at least
two inches taller, and at that moment
he would not have changed places
with any one In the world. To hide
the embarrassment his gratification
caused him lie pulled out his watch
and exclaimed:
"Why. It's a quarter past six. We
shall have all we can do to get back
to tiie hotel and dress for dinner."
Shirley rose at once, although loath
Jo leave.
"I liail no idea It was so late," Rlie
said. "How the time Illes!" Then
-•noekingly she added: "t'tniie, Jeffer
son lie a good hoy and find a call."
'I I ley passed «- ii t of the gardens liy
the irate facing the Theatre de l'(hleon,
| where there was a long string of
1 flai tvs for hire. They pit Into ore.
j and In fifteen minutes they were back

At (lie olllee they t<•)•! Shirley that
] her aunt had already come In and gone
i to her room, so she hurried upstair* to
dress for dinner, while Jefferson pro
<'eeded to the Hotel de l'Atlienec on
the same mission. He had still twenty
live minutes before dinner time, ami
he needed only ten minutes for a wash
! niid to jump Into his dress suit, so. In
: stead or going directly to hU hotel, he
i sut down at the Cafe de la I'alx. lie
was thirsty, and calling for a vermouth
fraiipe he told tie garcon to lirlng him
! also the Ameiicuu papers.
The waiter returned with the ver
i mouth and the newspapers. All lie

which he pronounced T-e cm s, and
I some Issues of the New York Herald.
The papers were nearly a month old.
but lie did not care for that. Jeffer
; son Idly turned over the of the
, Herald. Ills thoughts were still run
nlng on Shirley, and he was paying
little attention to what he was read
ing. Suddenly, however, his eyes rest
ed on a headline which made him sit
Hp with a start. It read as follows:
, "Judge Rossmore Impeached—Justice
of the Supreme Court to Re Tried On
, Rrilicry Charges."
The dispatch, which was dated
V as i)i lu; ton two weeks back, went on
"Ail nd uou lUuivc youruitl"
at say mat serious charges uneciiiig
tli«' integrity of Judge Kossinore hud
been made tin" sulije* t of congression
al inquiry mi l that the result of the
Inquiry was so grave that a demand
for lm|icachuicut would l>e at once
sent In the senate. It added that the
charge* grew nut of the recent decision
in the Creat North western Mining com
I>any case, it being alleged that Judge
Kossinore had accepted a large sum
of money on condition of ills handing
down a decision favorable to the c.»tu-
l»nviy.
Jefferson was thunderstruck. He
read the dispatch over again to make
svre there was no mistake. No, It
♦as very plain Judge Kossinore of
Madison avenue. Hut how prep »ster
ous, what a calumny! He pabl for his
vermouth nil* 1 hurrie<l nwr.y to his
hotel to dress.
It was Just striking 7 when he re
entennl the courtyard of the <Srand
hotel. Shirley and Mrs. Hlake worn
watting for him.
They drove tip the stately Champs
Klysees, past the monumental Arc do
Trlomphe and from then* down to the
Hols. All were singularly quiet. Mrs.
Hlake was worrying about her new
gown, Shirley was tired, and Jefferson
could not banish from his mind the ter
rilde news he had Just read. He avoid
ed looking at Shirley until the latter
noticed it and thought she must have
offended him in some way. She was
more sorry than she would have him
know, for with all her apparent cold
ness Jefferson was rapidly Incoming
very Indispensable to her happiness.
It was nearly 10 o'clock when they
had finished. They sat a little longer
listening to the gypsy music, weird and
barbaric. Very pointedly, Shirley re
marked :
"I for one preferred the music this
afternoon."
"Why?" inquired Jefferson, ignoring
the petulant note In her voice.
"Itecnuse you were more amiable!"
she retorted rattier crossly. Rut she
could never remain angry long, and
when they said good night she whis
jiercd demurely:
"Are you cross with me. JcffV"
lie turned Ids head away, and she
saw that his face was singularly
drawn and grave.
"Cross no. (aood night. Ood bless
you!" he said, hoarsely gulping down
a lump that rose in his throat. Then
grasping her hand lie hurried away.
Completely mystified. Shirley and
her companion turned to the olllee to
get the key of their room. As the
man handed It to Shirley lie passed
her also a cablegram width had Just
come. She changed color. She did
not like telegrams. She always had a
dread of them, for with her sudden
news was usually bad news. Could
this, she thought, explain Jefferson's
strange behavior? Trembling, she tore
open the envelope and read:
Cume home at once. MuTIIKR.
