(Copyrlght, 1917. Western Newspaper Union.)
"Then I have lost my two thousand
dollars," propounded old Hugh Roberts
"Every cent of it, and past recovery.
You have simply been swindled out
right." advised Lawyer Griscom.
Hugh Roberts ran his fingers nerv
ously through his sparse white hair
and a lohk of despair came into his
faded eyes.
"It's the end, then," he said deso
lately. "It's twice and out. First I
advanced that young fellow Warren
Lee my five hundred dollars savings
on the patent that disappeared with
him. Then along came this oil prop
osition. It looked reasonable; one
hundred acres cut up into small lots.
You laid fifty dollars a lot and I
bought forty of thetm. You see, the
compan,: y was to bore for oil. If one'
of my lots happened to ibe the place
where they struck oil I was to get
ninety per cent of the entire produc
tion. Think of it ! rich for life, and I
could have built the dream of my life,
a nice bungalow on the old homestead.
But that's all past now. I must think
of Esther and I want you to sell the
little place."
"Oh, don't do that, Roberts," remon
strated the lawyer.
"Yes, it's got to be," Insisted the
other firmly. "I owe it to Esther, my
little niece and faithful housekeeper.
I have planned to leave her well pro
vided for. Now all I can do for her is
to turn what little I have left into cash,
and arrange to have my stepsister take
care of her for the money. She must
not know I am going away. I want to
slip out of her life quietly."
"But how are you going to live, your
self?" inquired the lawyer solicitously.
"I have arranged all that." tersely
replied Roberts, and that settled it.
There was no redress as to the in
vestment of Roberts In the oil specu
lation. The company had bored ten
wells, Just as they said they would, but
no oil.
One morning all Glenville knew that
Hugh Roberts had disappeared. Es
ther, who loved him dearly, was broken
hearted when, gently as he could, Mr.
Griscom told her the depressing facts
of the case. There was another grief
nursed in secret by the fair young girl.
Roberts had referredsto a first in
vestment about a year previous. War
ren Lee had incidentally met Mr. Rob
erts, enthusiastic over his Invention,
which required five hundred dollars to
complete. He pledged his honor that
he would give Roberts a one-half in
terest if he would advance the amount.
"When I come back it will be to
make you rich," he had answered the
old man.
"And when that lucky day comes,"
he had whispered to Esther, "I am go
ing to ask you to become my wife."
Therefore, no marvel that Esther tried
to cherish hope amid all her troubles,
for, although they received no word
from the young inventor, a memory of
his earnest, honest face bade her re
tain her faith in him. She took up her
home with a new relative and patiently
awaited the awards of fate.
Roberts had gone straight to the site
of the great oil field that had no oil.
He had claimed possession of his forty
oil lots, which no one disputed, for the
land was absolutely valueless. Rob
erts built a little shack, he purchased
a cow with a broken leg and nursed
It back to health. He planted some
vegetables and sold milk to a cross
roads tavern two miles away, eking out
a wretched living and peered at by
those who passed his "farm." He was
persistent, gloomy, reticent, and barely
spoke to anyone, leading the life of a
hermit, hoping the end would come.
A year passed by and Roberts re
garded with suspicion, distrust and re
sentment a hanger-on of the tavern
named Dick Essen. He and a chum
tried to get into the confidence of Rob
erts as to who he was and where he
came from, and seemed mightily In
terested in prying into his affairs.
uHe's our man," spoke Essen to his
comrade one day, after Roberts had
~ordered them from the house.
"Yhat's sure-we've got to act." -
"Yes, and by force. See here, we're
sure of that thousand dollars. It's
worth risking a little time and money."
Now. this had happened: Essen haS
come across an advertisement. It of
f'ered one thousand dollars for Infor-,
mation that would disclose the where
abouts of Hugh Roberts. It described
him accurately - "Apply to Samuel
Grlscom, Glenvlle."
The next evening Essen and his con
frere entered the little shack, pounced
-upon Roberts, bound him, drugged him,
and placed him In a closed-in automo
bile. Then there was a twelve-hours'
swift dash across country. As a first
dim consciousness returned to Roberts,
he was amazed to find himself at Glen
ville, in the office of Lawyer Orlscom.
"You are welcome visitors," he
caught the brisk tones of the latter,
"and I will pay you the thomsand dol
lars gladly."
"What does this mean" murmured
the dumfounded Roberts.
"Happiness and fortune " cried the
lawyer Joyfully. "We have been seek

wide desolation. For as far as the eye
could reach was water, the roaring

houses and barns land great healps of
wreckage where the valley dilped. A
flood, followed by a bursting danm, had

iag. li11 had saved up nearly $3,tN(Io.
A poultry fancier and importer had
just introduced into this country a rare
species of what we.re called cochin
pheasants. They were wonderful lay
ers, they were a sport fowl, they were
Incomparable broilers. Peyton bought
the entire outfit. Then he had leased a
few acres of land and had put up some
buildings. The chicken quarters were
palatial. There was one large sited so
comfortably built that It had two sto
ries and held over 4-45) of the blooded
fowl. This had been bodily wrenched
from its moorings and mingled with
other wreckage.
"You found no trace of the chicken
house?" inquired Rogers.
"Yes, parts of it strewn here and
there, and such a body of fowls, even
live stock, massed up where the river
branches ran that I hadn't the heart to
look. P'oor things!"
So Clyde Peyton started out on the
road, as of yore, as a traveling sales
man. lie did not even leave an address
behind him. He tried to forget his mis
guided speculation. It was during his
vacation month that the old love for
animate farm nature came back to him.
There was a state fair, and he visited
His whole Interest was centered one
day on a poultry annex where a full
line of cochin pheasants was on ex
hibition. At once l'eyton was in his
element. He engaged in conversation
with the man in charge of the collec
Peyton turned to proceed on his way,
he faced a bright eyed, handsome
young lady who evidently had been an
interested listener to all he had said
and showed it in her Intelligent eyes.
Peyton strolled around to the same
place the next day. He found the ex
hlbitor glad to see him. The young
lady was there also.
They became very well acquainted
and it was a rapturous week for Clyde
Peyton. Together they went the
rounds of the fair again and again.
One day Clyde narrated his former
business venture and the circum
stances of the flood that had beg
gared him. Miss Barnett gave him a
strange glance that he did not observe.
Her breath came quickly. It seemed
to Clyde as though she was very indul
gent and considerate with him after
that. His heart beat high whenever
he recalled all her little kindnesses.
The next day his emotions went down
below freezing point when, In a casual
conversation, the exhibitor remarked
"Yes, Miss Barnett is heiress to a
very large fortune."
"That settles it," soliloquized Clyde
ruefully, alone with himself. "The
chances of a poor commercial traveler
for winning a peerless creature like
that would be decidedly slim."
He decided to end his vacation and
told the exhibitor so the next day.
"Mr. Peyton is going away in the
morning, Miss Barnett," he told the
young lady who owned the poultry col
lection. "I happened to refer to your
being wealthy and it seemed to dispirit
