The Promoter's Wife
By JANE PHELPS
Nell Has a .Month'. Vacation.
The nrmlHtlco had been signed.
r.oneri was delighted. Many
precious hours did ho anil his father
spend together, taking long walk.,
or sitting on the porch talking ot
what Ilobcrt should be when he
grew up. Onco I overheard his
rather tell him:
"Never think that money Is every
thing, my boy. It Is all right to
plan to bo a good business man, to
earn nnd havo your share of the
good things of life. Hut never do It
at tho expense of another. Selfish
ness, Indifference to others bring
sorrow In Its train always In some
way. 1 want my son to be respect
ed, honored, because he Is, honor
able." Tears filled my eyes ns I
heard, not so much because of the
word., as tho padncss of the tone.
"I want to bo like you father,"
had been the boy's answer.
"I pray you may never be like
me, I pray you mny be a far better
man thnn ever I have been. Some
day when you are older I shall tell
you n slory. When you arc old
enough to understand."
I crept quietly 'away. Was Nell
never to bo at peace? Was he al
ways to carry with him the knowl
edge that ho had nearly shared the
common rate of criminals because
he had done wrong?
Father and mother visited us dur
in Nell', vacation. They were de
lighted with our little home, and I
knew happier than when they
visited us In town. They knew very
little of what had happened, slmpiy
that Nell had lost most of hi. money,
and was starting over again. Nell
frankly told of his work with Fred
erick, of what ho hoped to do now
that the war was over.
"A simple life Is the best," father
said, us wu all sat in tho little liv
ing room nflur dinner. I am sure
you will he happier If you do not try
for loo (treat riches. They take
wings and fly nway as you have
seen. Love, a few friends, enough
to live comfortably, what more does
It was so like dear father to talk
like that. He never proarhed. never
questioned. Hut when ho expressed
hlrmelf it was always In language
that disclosed I ho sweetness of his
nature. HI. simple theory of life.
We had made a few friends In our
new home. Nleo Intelligent peopu
about our own uge. We played
bridge with them occasionally and
once in a while one or the other
would give a little dinner. I culti
vated them more now than I had bo
fore. Nell would bo better for n
llttlo society, although he grumbl
ing!)' declared he wanted none of It.
Vet 1 noticed that when he and the
men talked men who wero tiylng
to make headway In business that
he brlghtoned up considerably, nnd
that he invariably talked io they
"A few friends.'' father had said.
I knew ho was right. I must not al
low Neil to draw completely away
from human companfoslup.
Tomorrow Nell Pays thu last of
Tho war wn over. How Noll and
other men who had worked as he
had lived through It I never shall
under.tunil. It was not only the sol
dier In tho treuche. who took his
.Ifo in hi. hand ready to give It
willingly If necessary. Hut men at
home, men who carried the finan
cial burden of the war. men who
supplied the wherewithal to fight,
and who could not for a moment
sleep at the pot.
Frederick Insisted that Nell take
a rest, but first Im called him Into
111. private office.
"How much have you saved,
I'V.rbes?" Nell told him. He was
dumbfounded. "How ever did you
do It?" he asked.
"IVe have lived very simply. Ilar
bnra ha. done all .Im could to help,
mr entire excuse, havo been cov
ered by 1100 a month thank, to
her ever slnco wo left Now York,
lite rest Is In a bank until t have
enough to clear up my Indebted
ness to Scott and others.
Frederick said nothing more Just
thenaneiit our finances, but In
sisted upon N'.il taking a month's
vacation. lie advised Maine or
Canada, somo entire change. Nell
said nothing, hut came m me witti
Us plan which wa. to simply May
it home nod "get acquainted with
"I of couive get full salary, so It
will mean saving If I remain here.
Then I am so tired I long Just for
you and the unlet ot home."
I agreed with him that It would
bo for the best. I was ns anxious
as he lo get our debts paid. More
perhaps as I hoped that were he
free hi. buoyant i-plrlts and happi
ness would return. He was old
far beyond h'. years, hi. boyishness
hn.l all disappeared. Ho had been
tried, had been burnt In tho tires,
md even though Im never again
would bo found wanting tho effect
