House and lot to trade for horses and cattle or either. Realty Co. Brunk-Williams *The Fighting Chance. By ROBERT W. CHAMBERS. Copyright, 10C6, by the Curtis Publishing Company. Copyright, 1900, by Robert W. Chambers. jr CHAPTER sSlX Tt FTER the first fow days of his /\ arrival at Shotover time had /% threatened to hang heavily A V on Mortimer's mottled hands. After the c^(»ond day afield he recog nized that his shooting career was practically over. Then Mortimer, not yet done with self indulgence in mote ronvenieut forms, cast about him with in his new limits for occupation be tween those hours consecrated to the rites of the table and the card room. He drove four, but found that it numbed his arms and that the sea air made him sleepy. Motor cars agreed with him only when driving with a pretty woman. Forced through ennui to fish off the rocks, he soon tired of the sea perch and rock cod and the malodors of periwinkle and clam. Then he took up his headquarters in the reading room on the chance of his wife's moving elsewhere, which she did, unobtrusively carrying Captain Voucher with her In a sudden zeal for billiard practice Qn rainy mornings now too frequent along the coast. Mortimer possessed that mysterious talent, so common among the financial ly insolvent, for living lavishly on an invisible income, but, plan as he would, be had never been able to increase that income through confidential gossip with men like Quarrler or Belwether or even Ferrall. What information his pretty wife might have extracted he did not know. Her income had never visibly Increased above the vanishing point, although, like himself, she de nied herself nothing. One short, lively interview with her had been enough to drive all partnership ideas out of his bead. He was always studying women. Years before, Grace Ferrall had snap ped her slim fingers in his face, aud here at Shotover the field was limited. Mrs. Vendennlng had left Agatha Caithness was still a pale and reticent puzzle. Rena, Kathryn and Eileen tormented him. Marlon Tage coolly au fait yawned In his face. There re mained Sylvia, who, knowing nothing about his species, met him halfway with the sweet and sensitive deference due a somewhat battered and infirm gentleman of forty-eight, until a sleek aside from Major Belwether spoiled everything, as usual, for her, leaving her painfully conscious and perplexed between doubt and disgust. Meanwhile the wealthy master of Blacks Fells, Beverly Plank, had found encouragement enough at Shotover to venture on tentative informality. There was no doubt that ultimately be must be counted on in New York, but no body except him was Impatiently cor dial for the event, and so at the little bouse party he slipped and slid from every attempt at closer quarters until, rolling smoothly enough, he landed without much discomfort somewhere between Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Mor timer. And it was not a question as to "which would be good to him," ob served Major Belwether, with his mis leading and benevolent mirth. "It was which would be goodest quickest!" And Mrs. Mortimer, abandoning Cap tain Voucher by the same token, dis played certain warning notices per fectly comprehensive to her husband, and at first he was inclined to recog nize defeat.* But the general unsuccess which had so faithfully attended him recently had aroused the long dormant *'-r l *t for a general review of the «ihm B ob with his wife—perhaps even the fur tive hope of some conjugal arrange ment tending toward an exchange of views concerning possible alliance. The evening previous, to his Intense disgust, host, hostess and guests had retired early In view of the point shooting at dawn, for not only was there to l>e no point shooting for him, but he had risen from the card table heavily hit, and, besides, for the first time his apples and port had disagreed with him. As he had not risen until midday, he was not sleepy. Books were an aver sion equaled only by distaste for his own company. Irritated, bored, he had perforce sulkily entered the ele vator and passed to his room, where there was nothing on earth for him to do except to thumb over last week's sporting periodicals and smoke himself stupid. But it required more than that to en snare the goddess of slumber. He walked about the room haunted of slow thoughts; he stood at the rain smeared pane, fat fingers resting on the glass. The richly flavored cigar grew distaste ful, and if he could not smoke, what, in pity's name, was he to do? For hours he sat in his room or paced the four walls, doubtful, cha grined, furious by turns. Once he drew out a memoran dum book and stood under a lighted sconce studying the fig ures. His losses at Shotover staggered him, but he had look ed to his wife heretofore in such emergen cies. is. p-V ( II1 s uneasi ness had pro duced a raging Studying the figures, thirst, punched an electric button with his fleshy thumb and prowled around, waiting. Nobody came. He punched again aud looked at his watch. It as tonished him to find the hour was 3 o'clock in the morning. That discov ery, however, only appeared to in crease his thirst. He opened the hall door, prepared to descend into the depths of the house aud raid a side board, and as be thrust bis heavy head out luto tha lighted corridor bis eyes fell upon two figures standing at the open door of a bedroom. One was Si ward; that was plain. Who was the girl he had kissed? One of the maids' Somebody's wife? Who? Every dull pulse began to hammer in Mortimer's head. In his excitement he stepped halfway into the corridor, then skipped nimbly back, closing his door without a sound. "Sylvia Landis, by all that's holy!" he breathed to himself and sat down rather suddenly on the edge of the bed. After awhile be rose and crept to the door, opened it, glued his eyes to the crack in time to catch a glimpse of Siward entering his own corridor alone. And that night Mortimer, lying awake In bed busy with schemes, be came conscious of a definite idea. It took shape and matured so suddenly that It actually shocked his moral sense. Then it scared him. "But—but that is blackmail!" be whispered aloud. "A man can't do that sort of thing. What the devil ever put It into my head? And there are men 1 know—women, too—scoundrelly blackguards, who'd use that informa tion somehow and make it pay too. The scoundrels!" lie squirmed down among the bed clothes with a sudden shiver, but the night had turned warm. "Scoundrels!" he said, with milder emphasis. "Blackmailers! Contempti ble pups!" He fell asleep an hour later, mutter ing something incoherent about scoun drels aud blackmail. And meanwhile in the darkened house from all round came the noise of knocking on doors, sounds of people stirring, a low voice here and there, lights breaking out from transoms, the thud of rubber shod heels, the rattle of cartridge® from th<? echoing gun room. For the guests at Shotovê'r were àwaklng lest the wet sky, whitening behind the east, ring with the whim pering wedges of wild fowl rushing seaward over empty blinds. He * * * * * * The unusual stillness of the house in the late morning sunshine was pleas ant to Miss Landis, very late, unconscious of the stir aud movement before dawn, and it was only when a maid told her as she came from her bath that she remem bered the projected point shooting aud concluded with au odd, happy sense of relief that she was almost alone in the bouse. A little later, glancing from her bed room window for a fulfillment of the promise of the sun which a glimpse of blue sky heralded, she saw Leila Mortimer settling herself in the for ward seat of a motor car and Beverly Plank climbing In beside her, and she watched Plank steer the big machine across the wet lawn while the machin ist swung himself luto the tonneau, and away they rolled, faster, faster, rushing out Into the misty hinterland where the long streak of distant forest already began to brighten, edged with the first rays of watery sunshine. So she had the big bouse to herself, every bit of it, and with it freedom from obligation, from comment, from demand or exaction; freedom from re straint; liberty to roam about, to read, to dream, to Idle, to remember. Ah, that was what she needed—a quiet In terval In this harrying youth of hers to catch her breath once more and stand still and look back a day or two and remember. So to breakfast all alone was de licious; to stroll unhurried to the side board and leisurely choose among thé fresh cool fruits; to loiter over cream She had risen * (Continued on Page 6.)
