The great hotel which he had, entered with awe and some misgiving in his new role of millionaire mine owner was sit uuted on the fashionable .thoroughfare; and his. rooms were on the 'fourth floor. From his windows. he had an excellent view of the daily parade of wealth and fashion, and he had soon wearied of it. He was a strauger in New Yo:k. and because of his natural.reserve and reti-: cence he had not yet been discot"ered by those human vultures of society whose instinct it is to prey upon the guileless newcomer and separate him from his money. As II matter of fact. Dick Lewis bad renounced cards and gambling of any sort ever sin e one night in a Gold Creek mining camp when he had witnessed the killing of three men over a game of poker. There was no one to know that he was a stranger in the city -a raw west erner who had made a lucky strike in Nevada and who had come to the great metropolis to see life and to spend his money. So far he had been safe. As he looked down at the continuous stream of automobiles and carriages in the broad avenue. at the multitude of strangers, a sense of loneliness as sailed him for the first time sin e his arrival. He turned from the window and picked up the morning paper. "If this is all there is to New York." he muttered grimly. "I guess I'll hike back to Go'd Creek and settle down ii _ - IC1K LEWIS FOUNb T)'.L WIDOW CII.TDT. a house of my own. That -Iilltop ranch property would be a mighty fine site for a house." Dick .Lewis was a handsome man even when he frowmed, as he wgs doing now over the dry details of the want columns, in which he had not the slightest interest. HIis hair was black, thickly sprinkled with gray that made him look older than his thlrty-fiv\t years. IIis eyes were large and gray, with a keen, compelling glance twat at-. Stracted interest in any one whoL met, him casually, "Well-I'll be--!" whistled Dick as his roving eye lit on an advertisement In the personal column of the paper: A poor widow with four children about. to be placed in an orphan asylum begs, the assistance of some 'benevolent person In preventing the breaking up of her little family. Address Mrs. S., box 2FF. He himself had once been the in mate of such an Institution, and lie had always remenbered the homesick feeling that had attended his residence there. It was characteristic of him that he drew paper and pen toward him and indited a short note to Mrs. S. of the advertisement: Dear Madam-If you will send your ad dress to me, care of this hotel. I will be glad to call upon you concerning the mat ter mentioned in your advertisement of this date. Yours truly, RICHARD LEWIS. "When he addressed the envelope DIck-did not notice that his glance had skipped, a few lines and that the ad dress he penned- was the one-append ed to the one following that of the poor. widow. By noon the f6llowing day-be receiv ed a businesslike little note: Dear Sir-Please- call at room 844; Luck-. -ly building, concerning advertisement. F. SELDEN. "PF. Selden must be the. widow," mused Dick. as he.ate his luncheop in: the pplendid hotel restaurant. "Won der what.she's dping-In an ofidce build lag-why, of course she'u a scrub wo man and some kind hearted fellow has allowed her to .hayv her imall a4dresia ed there. I'll go down by and by add me her-makes me cold all over to 0 think of those four yoiingsters being o Jrn a.Xwny from their mother's arms." e Room 844. Luckily building, proved 0 to be tucked away 'in a.corner at the end of a long, dark eorridoi. Dick 0o L4ws noci..d gently aild then turned the knob and entered the oimce. It was af small office and contained one window looking down on a dim 0 side street far' below. There was little ~ce..fuirturte.naiucl what there was 5appia'd to have' beeii recently re -claimed from'. some secondhand store, for it was all pretty well battered and c searreJd However. everything was neat and clean and carefully arranged to the best of its poor adv'antage. There s was a roll top desk and a long table ii and a couple of cliairs. Beside the win dow was a typewriter on a stand, and e seated at the nifichine was a young h woman gowned in black. She arose and came toward Dick as he closed the . door. - Dick I.ewis was tongile tied. He had seen many women in his life, but never t one 'ust like this. She was tall and i slender, with a sweet, oval face lighted '. by soft blown eyes. lHer golden brown il hair was braided into a coronet abovei j her while forehead. .Tle dark eye It browis'went up ever so slightly as she waited for her visitor to speak. } e Suddenly it dawned upon Dick that Li this could not be the poor widow of t, whom: he was in search. This young i girl could not be the mother of four e children, although her gi.vity and the p mourning g'own she wore lent her an f air of maturity. t "You came in answer to my adver-Ic e tisementi" she questioned at last. "Yes." stammered Dick, wiping the a perspiration from his brow. e "Then you muist he Mr. Lewis. for I o only had one answer yesterday. and it that was 3ourts." she went on, motion ing him. to a chair and resuming he:' i seat by the window. t "I was hoping I might be of some serv:ce to you." began Dick awkward- I ly. "You see. I've fot mo;'e money than s I know what to do with. and I came r east to spend so(me of it. but it's mighty lonesome spen!ing money all alone. and it's a coinfound'd idiotic thing to e do when there is so much need for it c 1 in the world. I suppose I sound kind t of goody-goody. but I'm not"- c The girl in black stiffened and all the pretty color faded from her cheeks. :Ier i trw eyes: lost their gentle ex w'ies5.itin bld il be.i;tcle shabrp and ques innliing. S!e arose with i single grace c fullmovemnt and i lolke down upol i him in th:' brief ln:o':tent before he re. r lltiiiietl'et(( ito get upon hisa feet. "I siarcely unlde:stand just what your llsiacl is with me, sir, but it is evident thait yon do not wish any type writflg done." she said haughtily.v "Typewritinp " l e echoed blankly. "I canme to see' if I couldn't hell) you keep those foiu' kids out of the orphan r asylum iand" "l'our kids-or--four children! What do you mean,?" demanded F. Se;den. l wilder'uteimt mingled with her hau cur. "I am referring to your advertise- J moat in yesterday's 'i'rulmpet." Dick was on his feet now and looking dowvi at her disturbed face. "I don't know what you mean. I didn't :idverti'e for an orphan asylum." she said c onfusedly. "No, Iln; of cou 'se not. Only. you see. I got your aunswer to my ilinquiry, and I supposed you were the party pool' wilow :'lntilng help to keeIl fouii children out of the orphan asylum," ex -. F.e!deu phrook hler head and a fa:nt sile c'urved her pink lips. A slenleor habd went up to smooth the go:dtle brown braid. ndll( fick's heart lealped strangely to noli e that there was no weddin:g ring uploti lt third finger of that left hand i-indeed the finger was quitre bl'Ire of .l'ngs. "I am Miss Selden. and I do typewrit ing here. IBusiness was so dull that I placed an iadv\er:iloemnt in yesterday's Trumpet. I noticed the other adtl\vr tisemenit just above nly own. You must have addressed your en\velope to me insltead at your widow." "I must have done that," admnitted Dick with some chagrin as Miss Sel1 den produ' ed a copy of the Trumpet and showed him his error. "So that widow didn't get my letter after nil. I shall have to write her another one. Pei'thaps-perhaps you'd write it on tioe machine for me." Before he wrote the letter he told her all about himself and his trip to New York and how glad he was to find a useful way to spend some of his money. She listened with sympathy, and after thie letter was written and properly addressed Dick found courage to voice a great desire. "Miss Selden, I wonder if you'd let me come up tomorrow or next day and report on the case of the widow?" "I shall be Interested to hear the out come," said Miss Selden politely. Dick Lewis found the Widow Schmidt as poor as her advertisement hinted at. It gave him pleasure to set her up in business in a small no tion store in the suburbs. Dick's greatast delight was in telling all this to Freda Selden. who listened with genuine Interest. lie called on her once more and gave her a bulky pack age of papers to be copied. and that time he was introduced to her widow. ed mother, who happened to be in the Office at the moment. Lewis didn't see as much of New York as he had intended. his time be ing taken up with hunting manuser;pts for Mfiss Selden to copy. He wrote to all his friends to send him manuscripts to be typewritten, he to pay all costs. He discovered that every friend he had in the world had at some time been innoculated with the literary fever. When Dick Lewis went back to Gold Creek to build his handsome home on the hilltop he carried with him a bride and a mother-in-law as well as the. blessings of the entire Schmidt fitmily.
