"It can never be—I cannot marry
you, Mr. Tyson."
The words seemed to sound the
death note to all the fond hopes of
Burt Tyson.
It was a certain pleading, longing
expression In the true, tender eyes of
Annette Saxton that checked Burt
from going away then and there. An
earnest touch of her trembling hand
detained him.
"But you must not desert us," she
went on winnlngly. "Surely we are
friends? My father has grown to
look for you and would miss you sore
ly. Oh, we are both us so grateful
for all you have done for ns!"
"It is nothing, It has been a pleas
ure, a business training," declared
Burt In a manly, honest way. "Miss
Saxton, I shall not annoy yon—"
"Oh, never thatl" Insisted Annette.
"Then—embarrass you. It would
have been sweet delight to me to
know that your Interest In me would
urge me to build great dreams on my
small start In life. Perhaps some
day. later—"
But Annette shook her head sor
rowfully and murmured: "You are so
worthy of some one stronger than I
as a guide and a helper. Please,
Her eyes filled with tears and he
saw that he was giving her pain.
It was well for Annette that Just
then there was an Interruption. From
the wing of the house where Mr. Sax
ton had his study and work room
there came a quick call:
"Oh, Mr. Tyson, I must see you at
once !
John Saxton was an Inventor. For
merly he had been superintendent of
the great Walworth Motor works, a
mile distant. He had made some Im
provements on one of their specialties
for which the company had promised
him a large reward. They dishonest
ly repudiated the contract, and he left
their service* Since then he bad
spent a whole year perfecting a new
motor that would be the last word
In Its particular line, If It met his ex
pectations. The company had heard
of it and had made his overtures. He
declined to treat with them.
Burt was In the employ of an archi
tect He had known Mr. Saxton for
a long time. It was Burt to whom
Mr. Saxton had entrusted the drawing
up of the plans and specifications of
his new Invention. Burt found him
pacing his study In a state of the
greatest excitement.
"Mr. Tyson," he announced, "I am
In deep trouble and distress,
one entered this room yesterday morn
ing when Annette and I were absent,
took the plans of the new motor at
tachment from my desk and copied
"Copied them," repeated Burt In
"You suspect the Walworth com
pany of that wicked act?"
"Suspect? I knowl" fairly shouted
Saxton. They have stolen my pat
ent, they are robbing me for a second
time !"
"Then, even If you got your papers
Into the mall at the very earliest mo
ment tomorrow morning, they would
be a day ahead of you?"
"I am too late, I see that," said the
Inventor dejectedly.
"Give me those papers!"
"What are you about to do?" began
the Inventor bewllderedly.
"Leave it to me. Only-hope. 1
think I see a way to circumvent those
Walworth plotters yet."
Then Burt was gone. He passed
Annette, lingering ot the gate. She
noted his agitated manner, his
"My father—'' she faltered.
"He will tell you all," explained
Burt hurriedly. "He Is the victim of
a cruel, wicked plot. I am going to
save him If I can,"
Just at daybreak next morning Burt
Tyson was nt the nearest city. An
hour later he had the wires east go
ing In his behalf. It cost him nearly
all the $200 he had saved up to semi
a long- message to a close friend, a
young lawyer In Washington.
Word for word he wired the specifi
cations of the Saxton pntent.
At noon that day Burt received the
following dispatch from the friend he
knew he could rely upon :
"Drawings, papers nnd application
filed. Caveat granted and later appli
cants shut out."
The story was all over the town
48 hours later. Burt was at the Sax
ton home when an emissary from the
Walworth works offered a small for
tune for the valuable patent they bad
tried to steal.
Agnln Annette stood nt the gate as
he left the house. Again her grateful
soul tried to Impart to him the emo
tions his noble fidelity had aroused.
Something In her eyes held him,
some latent hope drove him to speak
once ngnin of the love in his heart
that could never die out.
"It was only that we were so poot
—It was only because 1 felt that y»u
were worthy of some one not so hum

He checked her utterance with •

Remove Grease Before Lacquering.
It is possible to protect polished
metal surfaces by applying several
coats of cold lecquer or celluloid var

with a brass camel's hair brush, after

There must be no trace of grease on

Quick Aid Prevents Fire.
