No answer.
I say. do you want to cover, or
shall I sell?"
I An impatient wave of his hand wu
! aII * he answer Hugh Keene gave.
rhe other was a man of few words,
and he had already spoken those few.
"» cry well then, if you can't cover,
you're wiped out!"
T^ a , s those last words that Rlch
j ard Walker heard as he paused for a
I moment outside the coor. It was
i these words that changed his smile
| of affable patronage to one of un
j pleasant menace as he entered Keene's
i offlce.
i v ? v wasted no time in preliminaries,
but besan, very abruptly, "There's a
report about town. Keene, that is, In
the financial district, that you've been
loading yourself down with the worth
ier A. & M. Is it true, and if it is,
what, man. In Heaven's name, have
you been buying it with?"
Keene was immediately attentive.
"You need have no fear," he said.
I'm glad of that." said the other,
'because, to be frank with you, I've
had an unavoidable fear that, er—
well, that you'd been something that
the word reckless wouldn't adequately
describe."
Yo" need have no fear," the young
Her Not—He Wag Dead.
man reiterated heavily.
Walker held out his hand, and
Keene took it listlessly.
"I'll see you tonight?"
"Yes. tonight," dully, "and con
gratulations."
"Thanks."
Walter smiled affably, turned, and
was gone.
Keene listened to his footsteps as
they echoed and died out down the
long corridor. Then he went to his
desk quickly and opened the bottom
drawer with a key Trom his safe. His
hand sought its dark recesses and at
a cold touch he smiled cunningly as
he looked toward the door, and his
lips framed two words his expression
made hideous: "Tonight."
VI.
»u That , nlght n s hts Mazed throughout
the palatial residence of Richard
1 Walker. It was the night of his for
of h!s engagement
Ik!,.h i K.P lton ' Liveried servants
bustled hither and thither about the
rooms, making all ready for the ex
?i e i Ct K d . fi leß i. S They came on "me.
all but Hugh Keene, who was tardy.
There was another guest, early, un
invited, and unexpected. He had fol
lowed Walker home from Keene's of
fice that afternoon, and now, patient
ly hid behind the folds of the heavy
curtains that separated the reception
room from the dining room. He kept
very quiet, this guest, and when ho
could, watched intently Walker's face.
He noted also the pale tragic look on
the face of the young man who came
late, but was too Interested in his
own affair to indulge his sympathy.
Sympathy! Strange thing, that, in
one who had come for what he had
come. Strange that those years in a
prison cell had not entirely killed
that. He thought, passingly, how
strange it was that he should enter
tain a thought of sympathy—he,
whose heart's desire—
But his interest in the pale young
man was, perforce, concentrated when
he noted, after dinner, and just as
Walker was about to crown his future
bride with a magnificent diadem, that
the young men's hand sought inde
cisively his hip pocket.
Porter's interest changed quickly to
apprehension at the sudden thought
that this pale young man might cheat
him out of what he felt to be specifi
cally his. "His heart's desire." He
would give him no further oppor
tunity. Quickly, nervously his own
hand found his coat pocket—quickly,
nervously, his arm was struck through
the luxurious folds of the heavy cur
tains that concealed him.
He fired, and Walker spasmodically
clutching his shirt front, sank lifeless
to the floor.
Don Porter made no attempt to
escape. When they took him, he was
smiling with frightful content. They
thought him iasane, for, as he was
taken off, he kept ever repeating an
(to them) incomprehensible phrase
whose burden was "my heart's de
sire!"
Keene left hurriedly, his step hard
ly more buoyant than when he had
, come.
VII.
! The next morning Edith Hilton
! seemed peculiarly unaffected for a
girl who had so tragically lost her
| sweetheart. >
But the sense of her own perfidy In
: bartering her soul for this man's gold
j was only borne In upon her when she
realized how unaffected his death left
| her. She wanted to see Hugh Keene.
It was the strongest feeling she had.
She rushed off to his offlce, although
■lt was much before opening time.
He was there, dressed as he had
! been the night before. His head was
thrown forward between his out
stretched arms on the desk; his body
was alarmingly still. She went to
him, a chill freezing the very nerves
:of her. His eyes were open, but they
saw her not. They seemed to be gaz
ing through the very walls them
selves, mayhaps after his departed
soul— out Into Infinite space, where
the Pomp of Earth harries not the
soul of man.
Lat.r, when men came, they opened
his flagers tightly clenched about a
dainty little revolver, and a note. The
note was from the Sunset Club, and
read:
'.'My Dear Mr. Keene:
"The governors of the Sunset
Club request that you deliver to
them tomorrow an accounting of
the funds entrusted to you as
treasurer.
"JOHN BRUCE.
