’ CHAPTER XXXIX
In less than ten minutes they re
called him. The faces of the direc
tors were flushed; but their jaws
were square. They permitted Merri
wether to speak, and the man's rasp
ing, unpleasant voice cut through the
smoke-laden air of the directors’
room.
“We’ve talked this thing over,
Borden. We know that you didn’t
steal those bonds—and we know- that
did. We sympathize with your
feelings regarding this young man.
But there is a practical limit to that
sympathy. This, then, is' what we
nave determined to do—in protection
or our own interests: We will give
you precisely 72 hours to return
those bonds to us. Three days.”
Borden's eyes closed—then opened
“And if I cannot?”
“In that case,” snapped Merri
Wether, “we will swear out a warrant
for Terry’s arrest. And we’ll damned
well see that he is convicted.”
• • •
My dear Bob:
Will you be kind enough to see
me for a few minutes tonight? 1
shall expect you at eight o'clock.
Sincerely,
^ PETER BORDEN.
Bob Terry re-read the letter for
the dozenth time. It was disturbing
in its calm assurance—and by the
same token, it irritated. Why should
Borden make a request and take for
granted that he would accede? He
walked into Kathleen’s office and
placed the paper before her.
She read it and looked up casually.
“Of course you'll go, won't vou?”
“Why should I?”
She smiled. “The question is, ‘Why
Pot’?”
Bob frowned. “I—I don't under
stand you, Kathleen.”
“Why?”
“For several reasons. In the first
place, I thought you’d be angry with
what I did—”
“I knew you expected that. But 1
merely played fair—or tried to. I
never discouraged you in your ambi
tion to square accounts with Mr.
Borden, and it certainly isn’t my
right to criticize you now. But as to
the appointment he asks—I don't see
that any harm can be done.”
“I might—”
“Listen to me, Bob; you owe him
a hearing. After all, he is going to
bear the brunt of this. You say that
you are safe—that they couldn’t find
the bonds or prove that you took
them. Mr. Borden is facing financial
ruin, and that means a great deal to
a man of his age who has built up
carefully and slowly over a period of
- many years. I'd go. Boh.”
He hesitated. Then. “I thought
u’d say that!” he blurted.
“Why?”
“Because ever since this thing
started, you’ve said just what 1
didn't expect.”
She threw her head back and
laughed, and Bob was not sufficiently
perceptive to see that there was no
humor in the laugh. She took his
hand and pressed it, then returned to
her typewriter. The boy stood star
ing down at her; she seemed so sure
of herself, so rocklike in her knowl
edge, that he was nonplussed.
He understood her gesture of dis
missal. He had asked her advice and
received it. He sulked from the room
like a small boy. And as he moted
to his own little cubbyhole of an of
fice he met John Carmody. Carniody
smiled bleakly.
“You should be feeling very well
today, Terry.”
“Yes, sir.”
“I understand that there was a
considerable commotion at the di
rectors’ meeting this morning. They,
gave Borden three days to produce
the bonds.”
Bob's eyes lighted. “Did they
think he stole them?”
“Certainly not. But that doesn't
matter to Jonas Merriwether. He
would part with both eyes with bet
ter grace than with a hundred thous
and dollars.”
“What will they do—to Mr. Bor
den ?”
“I don’t know. Make it hot for
him, of course. Ruin him socially
and in a business way.”
"And I?”
Again Carmody’s thin lips twisted
into a smile. It suited his purpose
to conceal the truth from this gulli
ble young man.
“They don't figure you in the mat
ter at all. You are absolutely safe.”
Bob breathed deeply. "I’m glad
to hear you say that, Mr. Carniody.
I was frightened.”
He moved out of the office, and
Carmody stared after him. Then the
thin, dynamic man walked into the
private office of Whispering Willie
Weaver. The giant. bald-headed
run arose to greet his chief. His
voice came in a hoarse croak.
“Merriwether’s raising hell, John.”
"Against Borden?”
"L'h-huh.”
“Going to send Borden up?”
“Hell, no. He's going to light on
the kid. Terry. They all know he
stole the stuff.”
"Will they convict him?”
"L>on't know. They'll come awful
close. If they co,uld lay their hands
on the bonds—”
“Good!” Carmody leaned forward
tersely. “Keep Mulcnhy on the iob,
Willie. Find out where Terry lias
those bonds. Some bank vault, I
suppose—and under an assumed
'1
name. Ought to be easy to get the
iay-down on it. Tip me off. I'll see
that .Merriwether finds out.”
Willie grinned. “Sure hate that
kid, don't you, John?”
“Draw your own conclusions, Wil
lie. But don’t draw them out loud.”
All during that afternoon Bob Ter
ry was torn by indecision. He pray
ed for sufficient strength to refuse
Borden’s request for an interview,
yet all the time he knew that he
would go. And five minutes after
eight o’clock he passed through the
front door of the big hou .
Lois was standing on the stairway
as Bob entered. She looked exquis
itely dainty in her dress of cling
ing white, and her eyes seemed un
usually large and bright. Bob stood
motionless, staring at her, reading
the plea in her wide-open blue
eyes. Then she turned, without a
word or gesture of gi acting, and
moved upstairs. Bob tossed his hat
on the console and proceeded to the
library.
Peter Borden rose to greet him.
At first sight of the man, Bob was
shocked. Borden was visibly older.
There were lircs in his face which
had never been there. The habitual
sureness was gone. He seemed
quecrly courageous at Hut moment,
and Bob did not experience any of
the triumnhant thrill that he had
anticipated.
After all, this was the moment for
which Bob had prayed ever since
the drab day when Borden’s clear
spoken testimony had consigned him
to the state penitentiary in punish
ment for a crime of which he was
innocent. He had counted the hours
against this hour; dreamed of the
time when Borden would cringe be
fore him.
He had broken the man. At least
he had cone near to felling him with
a single blow. But Borden was not
cringing. He met Bob's eves sauare
ly and in kindly fashion. He motion
ed the voung man to a chair a'd
seated himsel* onpo«ite. Then a long
silence prevailed* Border’s **ves fo
cussed reprovingly on Bob’s face.
Bob fidgeted. His nerves were
t’~ht-strung: he finally broke the
silence.
“’Veil?” he snapped. “What is
it ?”
Borden’s voice n*-ts softer than Bob
h'-d eve** heird it.
“Tha*'s what I'd like to k**ow.
Bob. I would—reallv. The^e are
-ome details von ne»dn’t go th-norh.

"Yes—you've done it, Bob. And
you have hurt me very deeply.
More deeply than you know.”
“I am not sorry.”
“1 don't suppose you are. Per
haps I’d feel as you do if the posi
t.ons were reversed. It is all so
foreign to anything Pve ever been
through—” Borden was speaking
gently, as a father who is struggling
xutileiy to understand a wayward
son. “1 only wonder if you, *■ourself,
understand. May 1 tala fer a mo

“Talking won't do any good.”
“But yea’ll listen, won’t you?”
“Yes.”
Border’s voice was no longer brit

“I should have expected tms. Bob.

too honest in what 1 was trying to

"I thought I was succeeding. At

Bob. that this rums m« materially.
I make no plea for myself. I'm still
getting off more lightly than you
did. I must, however, plead for Lois.
She forbade me doing it, but just
the same I must. Uemember that
when I go down, so doc» she. Af
ter all, Bob, she has not been re
sponsible for any of this.”
“And I wasn’t responsible when I
went to prison.”
“That’s true.” Borden hesitated,
lie sat motionless, hands clasped in
his lap. And when he spoke again,
t was not in continuation of what
he had been saying.
“I suppose you’re wondering what
I'm going to do. Bob.”
“Yes.”
