A Brilliant Campaign.
James Blake yet longed for specula
tive laurels. His one ambition was to
achieve some sweeping coup, and taste
the inward Joy of triumph—sweeter
far than the undeserved fame which
had amassed half a million of dol
lars the temptation to risk it was too
«trong to be resisted. John Burt had
just terminated a campaign which had
netted him nearly a million in profit,
and John Hawkins had been equally
successful. Blake saw a chance and
took it. With nerve and skill he
forced a stock to a point where vic
tory seemed certain; but an unfore
seen event ruined his chances at the
moment when the spell of ill-luck
seemed broken. The market turned,
but by a series of moves, brilliant as
If inspired by success instead of dis
aster, Blake saved himself from a
complete rout, and emerged with one
half of his capital
A few days later he held an Inter
view with John Burt—an Interview
destined to mark an epoch in his ca
“Can you arrange your affairs so
as to go to New York for me, starting
on Saturday?” asked John Burt.
‘‘l can start to-night if necessary,”
“Saturday night will be better.” said
Burt. “Two important railroad stocks
will decline heavily next week. They
are now bouyant, and the public is
eager to buy them. I shall have dis
posed of my interest in them before
you reach New York. Two million
dollars will be placed there to your
credit. Proceed at once, on your
orrival. to sell short one hundred thou
sand shares of each of these stocks.
You should be able to do this in three
days without seriously breaking the
murket. You hold in your name be
tween five and six million dollars'
worth of stocks and bonds, which are
listed on the New York exchange. Ex
press them to New York at once. I
propose to convert them into cash.
When I wire you, throw them on the
market and sell more of the railroad
stocks. This is our introduction to
tho Eastern market. We'll discuss
the details before you leave, and I
■have absolute faith in your ability to
conduct the campaign.”
It was a proud moment for Blake.
There was no shadow of envy or jeal
ousy in his thoughts as he looked into
the fqce of the companion of his boy
hood. and heard him speak calmly of
millions and of launching them against
the giants of Wall street.
“I can do it! I will do it!" he ex
claimed. "I see your plan, and its
magnificent. John, magnificent! It
will win—win beyond a doubt.”
John was silent for a moment, and a
far-off look came to his eyes.
“I have two important personal com
missions for you, Jim,” he said.
While in New York ascertain for me
if Arthur Morris is alive. Find out
what he is doing, and learn what you
can about him. The second task is a
more delicate one. It concerns Miss
Carden. I wish to know "
“I know exactly what you want." in
terrupted Jim Blake as John hesita
ted. "You want to know where she
is. how she is. if she loves you.
“You need not attempt the latter
task.” said John rather shortly. "You
are likely to undertake too much. For
the present I do not care to acquaint
Miss Carden, or any one in the East,
with my whereabouts, or even with
the fact of my existence. Be careful
in this matter. Jim. Of course you
will go to Hingham and visit your
■kinsfolk. You can easily learn all I
care to know from the Bishops, or per
haps from Sam Rounds. If not. go
to Boston; but get the facts without
calling on Miss Carden. You under
stand. don’t you, Jim?”
“Certainly I do. old fellow.’’ said
Jim heartily. “I’ll be as cautious as a
After repeated conferences every de
tail of the Wall street campaign was
agreed upon, ar.d James Blake sot his
face toward 3 the East.
He arrived in New York on Friday
evening. Early the following mcrnlng
he appeared in Wall street and pre
sented letters of introduction to the
banks and brokers who had been se
lected by John Burt as agents in the
On Monday morning he opened ac
counts with brokers and began selling
small blocks of the two railway stocks.
The market was strong, and all offer
ings were eagerly absorbed. In three
days he had sold one hundred thou
sand shares of each stock, and the
market was stationary. He wired the
fact to John Burt and received In
structions. The following day he be
gan the cash sale of the stocks and se
curities. When half of them were
sold the market began to weaken.
On Thursday morning he received
a cipher telegram which, when trans
lated, read as follows:
"Sell remainder of securities at
market price, and then ofTer railroads
A and B in five thousand lots.
Beneath the weight of these offer
ings the market trembled and then
broke sharply. I-ate in the afternoon
came the news of the resignation of
powerful directors on railroads A and
B; the organization of a competing
line, and the passage of a resolution
for enormous bond issues.
When James Blake went to bed late
Saturday night it was after fifty hours
of work without sleep. He had prac
tically concluded one of the most de
cisive campaigns ever waged on the
street. Before turning out the lights
he again read a telegram received a
few hours before, and his handsome
face flushed with pleasure as he read:
“Accept my congratulations on your
superb handling of our campaign. Mr.
Hawkins joins In salutations and we
drink your health. J. B.”
" ‘Our’ campaign?" said Blake, half
aloud. "That’s the highest of com
pliments. John must have won tor
tunes. and I’m a millionaire at last.
Wonder if I can sleep. Here goes.”
He dropped into a slumber deep and
untroubled ns that of a child.
James Blake found himself the Wall
street hero of the hour. He was ac
claimed the young financial giant from
tho Pacific slope—a market Ivanhoe
who had driven his lance through the
armor of famed knights and warriors.
He drank deep of the glorious nectar
of victory. The day had dawned when
he could accept honors fairly won.
While admitting that John Burt was
the master-mind of the campaign,
Blake knew that he had played no
small part In Its consummation. He
had Invested every dollar of his own.
He had carried his stock to the bot
tom of the market and covered in time
to profit on the reaction. In a week
of furious conflict he had not made a
New York threw open her gates as
to a victorious general, proud to be
looted in honor of his fame. She be
came the opulent and willing mistress
to his pleasures. She fanned his
fevered brow and whispered soft words
of praise Into his ears.
He banqueted with money kings In
staid bid clubs; he met as an equal
the dashing young scions of wealth
around the boards In fashionable
cafes; ho drifted through drawing
rooms brilliant in light, and looked in
to tho admiring faces of radiant
women: he mingled with the jeweled
throng in playhouse and opera; he
read his name and the story of his
fame in tho public prints—and he for
got John Burt.
He spent an evening in a Fifth Ave
nue Club —the guest of a young bank
er and broker who had profited from
the coup. Blake was faultlessly
dressed, and his fine face was more
handsome than ever. He goodnatur
edly declined to discuss his triumphs
in California, but told with spirit,
frankness and humor the tales of suc
cessive reverses and modestly at
tributed his recent run of success to
"You must transfer your activities
to New York.” advised young Kings
ley. who had been willed several mil
lions and a banking business. “San
Francisco is too small and provincial
for you. Ah. here comes a fellow
you must meet!”
A thick-set young man had entered
the room. He stood and listened with
a bored expression to a friend who
was enthusiastic over some matter,
and persisted in repeatedly shaking
"That’s Morris —Arthur Morris.” ex
plained Kingsley. “Son of old Ran
dolph Morris—don't you know. Pere
Morris retiied from business two
weeks ago and turned everything over
to Arthur. He was a wild one, but
hos settled down. The Morris rail
lions won't shrink In his hands. I
want you to know him. Blake."
When Morris’ name was mentioned
Blake started and gazed Intently at
the stolid face and heavy figure In the
far corner of the smoking-room. With
shame he recalled that he had made
no Inquiry concerning this man, whose
death or existence meant so much to
For a moment his nerves tingled,
and he longed to walk across the room
and choke Morris for John’s sake, but
he reflected that this was folly. It
was enough to know that Morris lived.
John Burt was dead —so far as Arthur
Morris was concerned —and Blake, as
John's reincarnation, threw himself
on guard, determined to profit to the
utmost by the incident.
“Glad to see you, old man!” ex
claimed Kingsley, rising to greet Mor
ris. “I want you to know my friend,
Mr. Blake —Mr. James Blake, of San
Francisco —Mr. Arthur Morris. You
certainly have heard "
“ ’Pon ray word this Is unexpected
luck!” Arthur Morris thrust forward
a soft hand and winced as Blake clasp
ed It with simulated heartiness.
“Delighted to meot you, Mr. Blake!”
Morris exclaimed. "Been looking for
you everywhere! Sent my card to
your apartments this evening. By
Jove, you're a corker, don’t you know,
Mr. Blake! Walter, a bottle of Perler
Gouet, ’54. I want to drink your
health, Mr. Blake.”
“Glad to meet you. Mr. Morris!”
said James Blake, looking him full In
the eyes. "I've heard of your father,
and the famous old firm, and learned
only to-day that you’ve succeeded him
Two years spent by Arthur Morris
in an apprenticeship to the trade of
money grasping and holding had
seamed the puffed, round face with
hard lines. Tho once dull eyes glow
ed with the newly-lighted fires of
avarice. The sensuous lips dropped
at the comers with a cruel curve. Tho

placed by the alertness of defense and
Close observers predicted a great ca
reer for Arthur Morris. His father
was delighted with the transformation
and did not hesitate to give to his
heir the keys which unlocked the Mor
ris treasurer vaults.
The hours glided by to the music of
clinking glasses and the rising clatter
of conversation. And as James Blake
talked and listened and drank, his
aversion to Arthur Morris relaxed, j
He loved John Burt and was eager to
espouse his cause, but John had not
commissioned him to quarrel with
Arthur Morris. Perhaps the affair of
the years beforo was only a boyhewd
He glanced nt the white expanse of
Morris' shirt front and wondered If tho
scar of John’s bullet showed over his
heart. Morris lived, and the thought
came to Blake that the score was even
between John and the young million
aire. The feud had made John rich —
why should John complain? And
Arthur Morris did not seem to be such
a bad sort of a fellow after all.
Thus reasoned Blake as Morris
took his arm nnd led him away from
the noisy club men.
“Say we get out of this?” said Mor
ris. proffering a cigarette case.
“You’ll be my guest to-night, Blake!
Won't listen to a refusal, my dear
fellow! I’ve bachelor apartments,
and anything you ask is yours. I
want to have a quiet chat with you.
Let's make our excuses and stroll to
Delmonlco's for a bite of supper. Then
we'll go to my rooms.*'
Blake accepted tho Invitation and
after supper they drove to the Morris
“I’m rather fond of these quarters,
don’t you know." said Morris, as he
showed his guest through a suite
worthy of a Lucullus. "Picked up some
of this stuff abroad, and the governor
contributed tho rest of it. Rammohun,
serve us that 1809 brandy!”
The Indian servant bowed and
moved noiselessly away. Morris open
ed a writing-desk and glanced at a
number of unopened letters.

of his district.
“I was traveling around just before

house in a little clearing 1 heard a
terrible uproar Inside. A free fight
of large proportions seemed to be in
progress. Abandoning ray horse, I
rushed to the door. My knocking was
drowned by the disturbance, so I
pushed open the door and entered. A
husband and wife were having a little
controversy. He was armed with a
wooden ladle and she with a heavy
frying pan. and they were belaboring
each other unmercifully.
"The fact is, they were about even
ly matched, but I did not have time
to see this, and fearing the women
would be hurt. I seized the man by
the collar and dragged him back,
gasping and speechless. Not so tho

age, there appear to be but few re

be definitely ascertained. A golden
eagle which died at Vienna in 1719

years previously, and a falcon, of

to have attained an age of 162 years.

English vs. American Hotels.
Landlord Simeon Ford of New York,
who has Just come back from foreign

keep a hotel in England than in this
country. If an Englishman doesn't
want mutton chops for hts breakfast,
he wants bacon and eggs. Tho land
lord can depend on that. Over here,
however, it is different. The hotel!
keeper must cater to dozens of distinct
food zones, and the bill of faro must
take in everything, including scrapple,
hog and hominy, pie, doughnuts and
all the other local specialties. “The

Arriving at a Verdict.
Kushequa, Pa.. Aug. 1. — (Special)-
In this section of Pennsylvania there
Is a growing belief that for such Kid
ney Diseases ns Rheumatism and
Lame Back there is only one sure
cure and that is Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This belief grows from such cases as
that of Mrs. M. I*. Davison of this
place. She tells tho story herself as
"I have suffered from Rheumatism
for thirty years ami find that Dodd's
Kidney Pills have done me more good
than any medicine I have ever taken.
I was also bothered with Hack
and I can only say that my back
hasn’t bothered mo since I toolc
Dodd’s Kidney Pills."
Considering that Mrs. Davison only
took two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills,
the result would be considered won
derful If it were not that others are
reporting similar results daily. Kushe
qua is fast arriving at a verdict that
"Dodd’s Kidney Pills are the one sure
cure for Rheumatism.”
