U ani i loua to get away from his home town of Jonesville. Abner Jones, his um-l la very angry because Broadway refuses to settle down and take a place in the gum factory In which he succeeded to his father's interest. Judse Spotswood In forms Broadway that l-'iO.Ow left him by Mm father is at his disposal. Broadway makes record time In heading for his favorite street In New York. With his New York friend. Robert Wallace, Broad way creates a sensation by his extrava gance on the White Way. Four years pass and Broadway suddenly discovers that he is not only broke, but heavily In debt. He applies to his uncle for a loan ana receives a package or chewing gum with the advice to chew It and forget hi troubles. He quietly seeks work withou uccess. Broadway gives what is In tended to be a farewell supper to his New Tork friends, and before it is over be comes engaged to Mrs. Gerard, an an cient widow, wealthy and very giddy Wallace expostulates with the ateu lllr and her youthful fiance, but falls to bet ter the situation. He learns that Broad way Is broke and offers him a position with his father's advertising tirm. but Is declined. Wallace takes charge of Broadway's affairs. Broadway receives a telegram announcing the death of his Lncie Abner In Kuropo. Broadway is ms sole heir. Peter Pembroke of the t on solidated ChPWlng Gum company offers Broadway $1. 2(0.000 for his gum plant and Broadway agrees to Bell. Wallace takes the affair in hand and Insists that Broad way bold off for a bigger price and rushes Him to Jonesvilte to consult Judge spots wood, who was Uncle Abner's attorney CHAPTER VIM Continued. "I've explained to Mr. Jones. Josie,' said the judge, "that the affairs of the plant are entirely in your hands. You can give him a pretty good idea of how things stand without the books and figures in front of you, can't you?' To Broadway's grief he sat down com fortably." "Well, hardly, Judge," said Josie smiling at him in a way which pained Broadwav. for it seemed certain to cement the jurist's firm intention of re mainlng with them for the balance of the evening. It seemed to him that this was Inconsiderate. "The old gentleman told me," the Judge explained, "that the works showed a profit of about forty thou sand dollars last year. Is that right?" "Oh, it was more than that." This distracted Jackson Jones' atten tion even from the color of her eyes. More than forty thousand dollars! "It was!" he said, with an elongating gesture of the neck and a side head twist which were habitual with him In i moments of delighted surprise. He drew his chair a little nearer even than It had been. Eyes were all right enough; but, after all, forty thou sand dollars! And possibly the eyes thrown In! Had he been lucky to es cape the bonds of wedlock with the ancient widow? Verily he had! "It was nearer fifty, if I remember rightly," Bald the pretty business worn an. "Well, that wasn't so bad, now, was it?" exclaimed Broadway. "Why, no," his fair informant grant ed, "considering that we've been fight inz the trust all the time. I think it was perfectly remarkable." "Do you?" inquired Broadway, with the eyes of faith, as if he were quite willing to accept her judgment upon all things. "Why, yes; don't you?" Her fore head had a pretty, earnest pucker that almost unmanned him. "Sure, I think it is," he made haste to agree. "What do yon think about it, judge?" The 'Judge must be brought into the talk, of course, as long as he was there. , The judge settled back Into his chair and looked complacent. "I always said it was the best chewing gum in the world." "We are talking about profits, not about the gum," said Broadway, and Josie burst into a rippling laugh which he felt sure was of the sort which tinkles among angels when something makes them happy on the golden streets. There was that In this speech which penetrated to the depths of the Judi cial system; it served as light to show the Judge what might be going on. Although he had been comfortably set tled for a long hour's chat about a sub ject which intensely interested him, he rose abruptly and stood looking down at them. "Well!" said he, and laughed. "You talk it over, now, with Josie. I'm I guess I am a poor hand where figures are concerned." He moved slowly toward the door, and smiled at every step. "I want to ask mom about some thing, anyway." Jackson Jones was really embar rassed for a moment when he found himself alone with this old friend of his youth, this slmplo little country girl. But he knew it wouldn't do; he was certain that it was absurd. To kill time he referred back to what the Judge had said about the gum. , "Can you beat that?" he Inquired. Wie best chewing gum in the world!" She looked at him with the serious Tight of real reproof in her incompar able eyes. ' "I don't think there's any doubt about it, Mr. Jones. The trust people realize it. If thoy don't, they certainly wouldn't be willing to pay a million dollars for it." "They're willing to pay more than that for it," he told her, feeling tor the first time a real interest in the conversation. Before that he had been absorbed only by the conversationalist. "Twelve hundred thousand they've of fered," She was not pleased. "I didn't think you knew that," she confessed. "They made that offer to your uncle several months ago." "But what I've got to find out is this: Am I in a position to hold out against the trust for a bigger price? You see, a friend of mine advises me to hold out. Is business good, right now?" "Why, yes. We did over a hundred and twenty thousand dollars last month." This was exciting news, and It ex cited him. "A hundred and twenty thousand dollars' worth of business last month! Can I go down to the bank and get that money now?" She laughed at his commercial Igno rance. "Why, certainly not!" For an instant his heart sank as h contemplated saying what he felt that he must say. sank doubly deep be cause he felt that the confession h must make might possibly disturb th ?ood opinion of him which he hoped he had renewed in her peculiarly lucid mind. But there was something in her eyes that gave him confidence. And there was nothing for it but confes sion. "You don't understand," he ventured stumblingly; "This is er between us. The fact is I'm broke! I am in debt! I must get some quick money and I want to know how much you have in bank, right now." "Our cash balance?" "Yes." She thought deeply for a moment Then she looked up with a smile of triumph. "Over eighteen thousand dollars, I should say." He was dismayed. "Ouly eighteen thousand dollars! And you did business of a hundred and twenty thousand dollars last month!" His manner worried her. "I hope you're not thinking seriously of going over." "Going over where?" 'To the trust." "Why? Don't you think the price they offer is big enough?" "It isn't a question of price, Mr Jones," she said, with flashing eyes it's the principle of the thing." "You'll have to explain that to me. "Why, think of what you're selling! she exclaimed. "It is the thing your grandfather worked, for and handed down . to your father; the thing' that he worked for and handed down to you; the thing mat you snoum worn for and hand down to your children, Josie Richards. then to their children, and so on and on. Why. tuinK or wnai you re sell ing!" He was a llttlo dazed, but, still, he surely needed money. "I don't see where there's any sentiment connect ed with the thing." "You don't!" She gazed at him, as tonished, and i'obo and stood beside the table, looking down at him. Would you ruin tho town in which you were born? Why, your grand father was the founder of this town, Mr. Jones! Would you see sevou hun dred men and boys turned out of their employment? Would you see the very bread and butter taken from the mouths of fumllieB?" He felt he must defend himself, ex plain himself. "Well, that's not my fault. I'm awfully sorry, but I can't help It. I don't see how I can help It. Her voice was deep and sorrowful, reproachful, warning, pleading, stir ring. "I'd give it very serious thought if I were you, Mr. Jones." Then the timbre of enthusiasm crept Into her v jfJL ?l.COMN tones and stirred him deeply. "Oh, It would be perfectly great of you to stand by and protect the people of this little town! You've a chance to do something very, very big a really wdnderful thing! I hope youH do It" He shook his head, but not emphat ically. "And I believe you will," she added, and then her smile returned. "I must run along, now. You'd bet ter come to the office tomorrow, as early as possible. There's a great deal to be done and so many things to be explained. I'll expert you at ten In the morning, shall I?" "Can I make it a quarter past?" "Very well." She turned away, but. as she picked up a little shopping bag with which she had been armed when she came in, she evidently was re minded of something, for"she began to fumble in it. Presently she found what she was seeking, and produced a small tin box, round and highly deco rated. She handed it to Broadway, who received it as if it had been some thing of high value. "This is our latest." she explained. "I don't think you've seen them. Jones' Pepsin Wafers. Good night, Mr. Jones." Dazed and with the box held loosely in his hand, he gazed at her retreating back. "Good night er er Miss Richards." After she had gone, while Broadway stood gazing after her, the box" of Pepsin Wafers still held loosely in his hand, the judge said cheerfully: "She's a nice girl, isn't she?" "Is she?" "Well, how did she strike you?" "An awful blow." "An awful blow?" Broadway caught himself. He real ized that such talk would not do. He tried to dodge the inference. "No, no," he protested. "I mean her eyes. Her eyes are awful blue." The Judge smiled satisfiedly. "Ev eryone in this town is Just mad about her." "They ought to be," said Jackson. "Have another cigar," the judge sug gested fervently. This brought Broadway to his senses. Those cigars! No. i tnana you. I've got some gum here. But wouldn't mind having another glass of lemonade." r The judge was pleased. "Why, cer tainly, my boy. I'll go and get it my self." Broadway spoke, up hurriedly. "No; don't do that. Ask Mrs. Spotswood to make it for me, yf't you?" Sure," said thdJ. enial judge. "And I'll tell her that you asked me to. It'll tickle her to death." At this point Wallace returned. He went to Broadway with his business air exceedingly in evidence. "Say," he said earnestly, "I've got a real knockout surprise for you, young fellow! Pembroke was waiting at the office of the hotel. That was his man he sent here. He knew we were leav ing New York before we started. He was telephoned to from the Grand Cen tral station. That's how skilfully they work in these mad days of frenzied finance. "He didn't wait to take a train he came by motor. And Just to show you what a smart little fellow you are for wanting to close at their price at noon today, I, who represented my self as Henry Wilson, your secretary, have given them till eleven,, o'clock to morrow to close the deal at fifteen hundred thousand dollars. "He's burning up every telegraph and telephone wire between here and Cleveland right now, and, unless . I miss my guess, I'm making you richer by several hundred thousand dollars, ust proving to you the value of pa tience. Fifteen hundred thousand dol lars! ' A million and a half!" He had been leaning tensely forward in his chair. Now he cast himself backward in an attitude of satisfied ease. "What do you think of that?" he asked. "Bob," said Broadway slowly, "I can't sell this plant." You can't!" It was an exclamation of amazement. "You don't know," said Broadway dreamily. "You haven't heard. Now, ust think of w hat I'd be selling. Here's the thing my grandfather worked for and handed down to my father; and the thing my father worked for and handed down to me; and It's the thing that I should work for and hand down to my children, and then to theirs, and so on and so on. ' Wallnce looked at him with Incredu lity too great, at first, for words When they finally came they were ex plosive. "Say" he cried. "What the l's the matter with you? CHAPTER IX. On the way to the hotel, after they had left the Judge's house, Broadway tried to tell Bob Wallace what, In deed, was the matter with him, but could not, for he had not ths least Idea. "Do you really mean to keep the plant?" asked Wallace skeptically. Yes. and pass It to my children.' said the dazed young gentleman. "You haven't any children, you con founded bsb!" "And they'll pae it to their chil- rcn " said the coming magnate of the chewing gum trade. WITH PHOTOGRAPHS FROM SCENES IN THE PLAY "I think you're crazy." "Bob, It's a cinch. But let me tell you." And he tried to, with but slight success. Wallace was a shrewd young man. "Is it your conscience or the girl that has driven you insane?" he asked. "I'm thinking about Jonesville. My grandfather built this town." "Well, he made a blamed bad Job of it. Why didn't he build a place a man could get a decent drink in while he was about it?" "And my father kept it going." "Well, he didn't keep it going very fast" "And now I've got to keep my faith with it. It is a sacred duty. I must not abandon it." "Say," said Wallace, in disgust. "Where did you get that stuff? Have you gone out and tried to get a decent drink here? This town ought to be abandoned. It ought to be put out of its misery." "The trust would close the plant and ruin all these people." "You'd think they were first cousins, to hear you talk about them." . "Bob," Broadway chided in a soft and earnest voice, "they are far more than that; far, far more than that. They are charges placed by Providence in the care of the Jones family. And, B6b, I'm the last of the Joneses." J'Let us hope there'll never be an other like you." '"There'll never be one more earnest, you can bet on that. Bob!" 'They were in a shady stretch of uMald. street, and, at night, a shady stretch of Main street, Jonesville, is about the darkest spot on earth out side of Africa. "Let's stop right here, in the dark. till you get over it," said Wallace. "It's late, but there might be some mad dened, joyous Jonesville roisterer to see If you went into the light." "I mean every word of it. There are no roisterers in Jonesville; they're all honest workingmen, horny-handed gum makers, toilers for the fortunes of my famf.y. That's why I'm protecting theil." - .

"I think you're going to be violent!" said Wallace. "He'll probably need both horny hands. But he'll subdue you! Now, try to give me some co herent notion of what's the matter with you, will you?" "I've awakened to my duty." "Time you did; you've had a nice Qlg nap. What do you see, now you have aroused?" "A pleasant little city, working hap pily at well-paid industry. I'm the pay master. A great nation, wagging tire less jaws.' They're chewing the Jones gum. Jones' gum, mind you; not some gum that the TConsolidated puts up against the public as just as good as that my ancestors made famous. I see" "For heaven's sake, shut up! You'll see snakes if this keeps on. That lem onade that Mrs. Spotswood gave you has gone to your empty head." "It was not the lemonaire that Mrs. Spotswood gave me, it was the touch ing line of talk that er that Josie Richards gave me." He paused while Wallace waited with his jaw loose on Its hinges. "Say, Bob, isn't she a queen?" "So that's it?" But he made no further protests. He was a level-headed youth, was this GREAT MEN MERELY HUMAN We Are All Too Apt to Forget Those Traits Which Link Them With -Their Fellows.

He knew as well as anyone that if the trust feared and wished to purchase the Jones gum it could be but because the trust knew that the Jones gum was a dan gerous competitor. If, managed as it bad been, unadvertlsed, it had been a dangerous competitor to the trust, then it was worth having emphatical ly worth keeping. And some day Broadway must do something. He' could not forever play the idler on the Great White Way, even if his millions were unnumbered. It was no life for an actual man, and Bob was sure that hidden somewhere in his friend were the true elements of worthy manhood. Nothing had oc curred to bring them out, that was all. He thought they might be coming now. Reaching the hotel, they found the place in utter darkness. Not a light, even turned down for the night, was visible at any window; not a sound of life came from the building save a rhythmic cadence of some sleeper soft ly sawing wood with a dull saw. "The clerk's asleep," said Bob. "How do you know that is the clerk?" asked Broadway, listening crit ically to the snore. "I heard him singing when I first got here, and now I recognize the voice. He held the tune a little bet ter, then, that's all." "Have we got to wake him up?" "Sure! Why, it's after eleven o'clock!" ' Nothing but the thought of Josie Richards' eyes could have kept Broad way at that Instant from casting all his worthy resolutions to the winds. selling to the trust and searching out a Bible upon which to swear that he never again would set foot in Jones ville. But he did remember Josie's eyes, and so began to hammer on the door. After a quarter of an hour of steady hammering, some shouting and a little whistling, he was rewarded by a sleepy and ill-tempered voice from a slowly opened window. "Heavens! Was his window closed! And yet that snore got6,UB!" '"It sawed its way out,"-Bob suggest ed. . - " - , i ingr? receipted J.ur- T - ruT UM4U1C-. "Want to get In." --., "At this time the night?" , "Sure.

"Well, the Grand hotel, it don't think much of folks that stays out all night long, I'll tell you that!" the clerk ex- claimed, as he came down in bright- red flannels (and not much of that) to let them in. "All night long!" "Ain't it a quarter after ieven?" After telephoning Rankin (much to the clerk's disgust) to hurry to Con necticut by the first train in the morn inc. with well-packed bags, the two friends crept upstairs, abashed. The clerk scorned such a menial service as attending them, and, in the excitement left from the rebuke he had received, Wallace stumbled into the wrong room. All doors were partly open, for the night was warm, and no one feared the midnight interloper, there in innocent and simple Jones ville. Fortunately the moonlight fell upon the bed, and warned him, otherwise there might have been a scandal in Gum Village, in which case the com plainant (he felt certain from that hur ried glimpse) would have been a sylph of close upon two hundred and fifty pounds.
