"Nifne," spoke Adrian Pearce, lndi eating his floor to the elevator con ductor. "Eight, please," supplemented a mischief-eyed girl at his side. She had once done stenographic work for the young lawyer and they were on pleasant speaking terms. She empha sized the "please," and Adrian recog Snized an implied reproach, but he spoke, low enough for the conductor to hear. "I said 'please' in my heart, Miss Adams, feeling duly grateful for the willing and pleasant service we all receive on the cars in this building. Do you know that I shake hands in spirit with every smiling person I meet? As upon any little tot who looks at me I bestow a mental hug and it brightens my day." "And I am so far from babyhood!" mourned Myra Adams daringly, and left at her floor with a bewitching, though flirtatious laugh. It was that evening that Myra men tioned Adrian to her closest friend, Adele Bartlett. There was a wide gap socially between the two girls, for Adele was an heiress, but their moth ers had been close friends in their youth. Adele, sedate and lovely, for both her parents were dead, was very fond of her less fortune favored friend, whose bright free ways showed a happy spirit under all circumstances. "The only fault with Mr. Pearce," observed Myra, "is that he doesn't in the least know what flirting means. I think he is the finest gentleman I ever met. He has very little business, for they say he will never take a case unless his client is absolutely in the right. He is the soul of goodness and never seems to begrudge his services for the poor and distressed. He got me my present position." "He must, indeed, be a model man," said Adele. "You should know him, Adele," de clared Myra; "you must know him. Somehow he is just your kind-a great thinker and so original. All he seems to care for is exerting a good influ ence." But Adrian Pearce was neither un canny nor an eccentric. There had been born in him a purity of impulse and thought that distinguished him from ordinary men. He was IntuItive ly humane and law was to him justice sheer and simple. He was invited to the Bartlett house by Myra during a social function and there was a dreamy, satisfied expression in Adele's eyes after he had.left. Adele's fair cheeks paled and her lips tremored as Myra said one day: "Mr. Pearce is about to give up his office on account of unprofitable practice and is going to South America with some great railroad project," and when Adrian called that evening Adele found it difficult to conceal her vivid emotions. As he held lpr hand at parting his words bore an under tone of sadness. "I shall miss you greatly, Miss Bartlett," he said. "I shall not cease to think of you always. If I succeed I shall return." "Oh, I so hope you will!" spoke Adele fervently, and his eyes light ened and expressed emotions that caused her to thrill and quiver. She sat alone after he had left, unable to cast off the spell his coming had evoked. In a dreamy mood akin to half somnolence she suddenly started up. To her overstrained senses it seemed as though an impalpable pres ence had entered the room and that she felt a soft caressing pressure upon her lips. She flushed and palpitated. Had this mysterious man in whom she was so Interested, who sent his thoughts out after others to console, to cheer, wafted to her a true "soul kissT' A new life was born in her. She aroanse, ordered her automobile and fol lowed out an urgent impulse. Only a few days before a friend, Mrs. Wynne, a wjdow, had told her of a just claim for a large amount she had against the wealthy former partner of her dead husband but had not the means to prosecute it. For hours Adele was closeted with this lady. Adrian Pearce did not give up hls oomee. There came to him the next day the widow friend of Adele. Ie* had no knowledge of their mutual ac quaintanceship. The case was placed in his hands and its merit lnvolving a just claim aroused his truest Intes' eat and attention. He won the case and was the recipient of a large fee besides acqulring fixed profealsional prestige. It was a few days after that when he entered his office to hear voices in the inner room. Mrs. Wynne was there, and Adele. He heard the lat ter say: "I must harry away, for if Mr. Pearce met me here with you he might suspect"-snd just there she came face to face with the young law yer and flushed crimson. "I overheard you, Missl Bartlett," spoke Adrian gravely, gently. "You senat me this client and financed the case. I am glad I can repay you, but the noble motive that impelled you to aid a struggling lawyer to his place in life I can never forget." She swayed unsteadily under his grateaful glance. Then she returned it, and in her 'yes there was as 'ething that told Adrian Pearce that to his moneyed ga.n and fame there had been add edi-love. conoaatio . cook of a certain family had been in the same situation fotr years.
