It cost $10,000 a year, niorfe or less,
t4 live at the Kenwood. But It #&n worth
?. nj:/'
The Kenwood wu the most aristocratic
apartment house in the clty*T#ure may
have been other buildings Whoso stairways
were made of finer msffoih whose
plate glass was a trifle heavier and
whose telephone wires got ^fppscd less
frequently, but they were not occupied
?.v iconic with such large incomes and
such irreproachable records aawas the
Kcuwood.lt wa? a great featVft In olio's
cap to- have the name of Uvlug there.
There was nothing like It for.ifoinlng social
distinction. Families that had frequently
found the way to wwlth and
were still on the lookout ftfrJ the road
that led into society's malted sphere
had betn known to rosort to'fcVery plan
that could be devised by-Inventive
minds Tor reaching the dt?lred haven
without avail; but as soon asthey took
rooms at the Kenwood all ptNMiidlce was
*wept away nnd they sailed triumphantly
on to -thoir goal.
If a woman gave a tea and the society
columns of the newspapers contained
ruragraphs descriptive of the ' assemblage
of wit and beauty at'jhe home of
Mrs. Mark, who Is residing,tit. the Kenwood
this winter." that good woman's
rrqutatlon as a aortal leader was
ft might way established. When something
else went shopping and said:
"Send It to the Kenwood,"^ ho clerks
kiusw at once that they were dealing
With a person who scintillated as one of
the most-sparkling lights In that upper
world of which they caught faint glimpses
over tho counter now ahd' then und
they humbled themselves accordingly.
It was considered a great honor to correspond
with any.one who was domiciled
at the Ren wood, and Ren wood women
frequently received notes which
they were compelled to answer through
common court csy? TUie recipients of
those replies, however brief and formal
they might b*. always toOlC particular
pains to show them nnd to remark, casually:
"I have received a letter from my
friend Mrs. Blank, who Uvea at the Kenwood."
and everybody In the fourth and
llfth circles Qf our great complex social
system, seemed to take on an air of
exclusiveness from the llttle.xransactlon
t\iid felt themselves raised several degrees
In the estimation of the world.
But It required a great den\ of wirepulling
to secure accommodation at the
Renwoou . People who wished to reside
there had to put In their application
ht.farahnni). hint ns would-be In
cumbents of appointive government
offices and lucrative position.* In corporations
file their petition, and await
tj>elr turn. The Ren wood contained but
twenty-five apartments, arnicas people
seldom moved and the list of application#
was lengthy it seemed a foregone
conclusion that there were o jfaod many
anxious aspirants who would wish
through time and eternity without finding
shelter beneath the Kenwood's roof.
Another thing that admission difficult to
rfny except iwognxod social lights was
the rigid examination through which
each new tenant was required to pass.
Men who had come through civil service
Hxamlnations with an average *?f i'9 per
cent, and still others who had taken
their degrees at West Point. Annapolis
and Yale fell down on the questions put
tp them by the proprietor at Kenwood,
Age. pedigree, occupation and amount
of wealth possessed were sworn to before
a notary public. And tfinteresting
family histories were, jessed in a
folio-sized, morocco-bound?book, which
was kept on a special table in the reception
room, where other residents of the
Kenwood might refer to lt,n,t any time
and sec juat whom they Were associating
It would be difficult to detormlne who
was responsible for the ul teat, exclusiveitess
of the Kenwood. It certainly was
not the proprietor. He wnq'a,' plain, unassuming
man, whose tasteo were inclined
decidedly toward simplicity
rather than ostentation, and when he
bought the site of the Renwdod and put
up his fine building he had no intention
of malting it oioer uuutt unifuonn
apartment house, which should rank
with others of its kind. He proposed to
conduct his business in a modest, quiet
way, 4?nd when he found that'his house
was becoming a tegular Mecca for the
swell set the shock of the surprise very
nearly incapacitated him for business.
The flrst member of the fashionable
clans to come to him was Mrs. Clyde
Moore. After that the Kenwood simply
seemed to grow into favor without any
imperial efTort from any one^3ir*. Moore
unconsciously served as a brilliant orb
which attracted numerous satellites to
circle round her. and before Mfc Merrick
was aware of what was taking'place his
fortune was made.
The unexpected social maelstrom In
which he found himself helplessly floating
around waa very bewildering. The
Kenwood?like many ano|A*f thing
whose popularity can.never in? explained?Had
acquired unparalleled celebrity
without any adequate cause, so far aa
h* could see. and It took him some tlmo
to learn to accept the situation philosophically.
There were a good many
times when he longed for a brief period

the careless habits of former days,
but hi* busing#"* acumen bade him rater
to Fashion, who had taken him flrmly
within her grasp, and he stood valiantly
at hi* pout managing his property and
collecting hi* wonderful rental*.
Up to last November there had been
no change made In the place for,a good
many months. Then theTamRy that had
occupied apartment No. 19 for the past
two years went to Denver and gave
somebody else a chance. The lucky one
jvhowas first on the list was a woman.
Fh" passed through the examination
with but one mark to her discredit; sh<?
wns,a widow. Somehow, the Kenwood
had always discriminated against widThe
other women In the house. especially
Mrs. Hannibal Wade, who had
Kradually grown to be regarded as a
leader, and who had helped to revise
th" latest catechism, objected to them.
"If you enn help It, Mr. Merrick."
Mr?. Wado said to th*- proprietor one
day. when she was inflicting one of her
innfldentlal talks upon him, "itover take
widows in the house. The rno><t (if them
have worried one man Into the grave or
tiie filvorco court, and thvlr sole object
in living Is to Entrap other vlmlms. I
am afraid I shall have to give you
warning now, Mr. Merrick, that If you
? v"r tako a widow Into the Kenwood I
niiall be forced to leave you.
Th<? friendly advice and admonition
ought to havo been sufflelcnt catfte for
til* Instant dismissal of the case pt the
widow, Mrs, Kaynor, but nhe averaged
such an extraordinary percentage on
other points that the genial landlord
eould not summon the hardihood to refuse
her admission.
Mrs. Wado chanced to bo away at the
time and Mrs. Kaynor had been occupying
apartment No. lfl for more than a
week when sh" came home. On** of Mrs.
Hannibal Wade's strong points.was a
display of fine indignation wh?ityy?j* occasion
demanded it and she came out

rolo When she examined th<* repr4? In
thr? morocco-hound hook and Iwncd
what had been done In her abaenco. She
writ to th" proprietor about It nt once.
"I hoc" she nald, "that you have broken
the rule which was tacitly agreed

your patron*, and have l"t No. w to u

"Well, Mrs. Wade." returned th?*.proprietor,
phlegmatlcally, "I am sorry If 1

But Mrs. Hannibal Wude's righteous
wrath wan not to be appeased by any
excuses which the .uftlutkly laudlord
could produce In his own defense.
"No," she returned. "I do not care to
know her. She may bo all right, but?
she Is not to be trusted and ought not
to have been permitted to come hofr.
However, It In not too late to remedy

To be sure, the great events of
the Kenwood's society calendar came
and went as usual, but the handsomewidow
was religiously excluded from
them all.

as the end of the first month drew
near. This intend bitterness wan
greatly aggravated by the outspoken j
admiration of the men, .who were
strongly, disponed to champion the
cause of the woman who had npparently
done nothing to merit such se- J
vore condemnation. npd It was undoubtedly
an Indiscreet remonstrance
which Mr. Hannibal \Vade. urged "
against th?? Injustice of tho case that
prompted his wife 10 seek another Interview
with Mr. Merrick.
"That Mrs. Raynor has now been
here a month," she said, "and I trust
you have hit upon some plan wherpby
we may get rid of her."
"No." said Merrick, slowly, "1 can't 1
say that I have." *
"I hope you understand the ease. Mr. j
Merrick," she said, severely. "There is
mutiny at Kenwood. You have rented
an apartment to a woman who has no y
natural protector and who smites at s
and flirts with our husbands, sons and c
brother.", who, I am sorry to say, seem
to be highly gratified by such pro- 1
ceedings. Mr. Merrick, I, with the oth- *

A feiv minutes after Mrs. Hannibal
Wade had left the room. Mrs. Raynor
came In. The widow's handsome
blond face waa flushed, her eyes were
swollen and the bit of a handkerchief
she carried in her hand was limp and
damp as if with tears.
"Mr. Merrick," she said, "T have
come to complain to you about the
way I am treated here. What have
T done that I should be so ostracised'.'
I never heard of anything like It. I
have long wanted t?? live at the Henwood.
Mr. Merrick, because of the unusual
advantages your patrons enjoy,
but If this thing Is to continue I must
go away. It I* breaking my heart."
She raised the wab of a handkerchief
to her eyes. Mr. Merrick swore for n
moment In silence.
"Madam;- said he, at length. 'Til
stand by you. If every family moves
out to-day and I have to put 'for rent'
signs In every window. 1 won't see a
woman Imposed upon In this way. They
object to you. Mrs. Rayuor, because
you are n widow." L
"Because I am a widow?" repeated
Mrs. Raynor, applying the white web "
to her eyes again. "Good ftraclou*. I c
can't help that." 5
"Of course not." returned the pro- J
prietor, sympathetically. "That Is. you 1
haven't helped It. although I wouldn't
be afraid t<> wager you could have
done so a score of times."
The pretty hand that held the tear- s
bedewed handkerchief, trembled vlo- .
Iently. 1
"Oh. Mr." Merrick." she said, and <
there was a pitiful little quaver In her c
soft voice that made honest Mr. Mer- >
"rick sink back In his chair in a tre- I
mor of sympathy. "You don't know r
what we poor widows have to bear. *
We are always under suspicion and I
the awruiest tilings an? impuifM 10 us, *tvhereas
we nra really th?v kindest,
most sensible, most honorable women
in the world."
"I'm sure of tlmt," replied Mr. Merrick.
"And they have trampled upon my
feelings and my reputation solely because
I am a widow." she went on,
mournfulIy."Oh, Mr. Merrick, It is an
awful thing to be a widow."
"I haven't a doubt of it." said Mr.
Merrick, promptly, "and I can't keep
one In my house."
"Then I'll have to leave the Renwood.
after all the trouble I've taken
to got in here."
"I didn't say that." returned Mr.
M?*viek. slyly. "I said that I would
not keep a widow."
Mrs. Hannibal Wade came down an
hour later to consult Mr. Merrick
again. *
The widow was sitting close beside
Ixlm and Mrs, Wade looked at her
scornfully. The mutiny had reached a
climax and there was no longer any

"Mr. Merrick,'1 ?he said, "have you s

"Stay," was the prompt reply.
"And on what conditions, pray?"
"On the condition that *he becomes
