He offers to give the younger man a start in the railroad bu.-innss. This pleases the two Hamilton. ir.imenso ly, and Richard severnl duys later joins Carlyle at the lattei-V home.

A few days bto.- Herbert writes his stepmother with the ilarm ing confession that he has comnattc 1 forgery, and has been discovered. He must have aid at once or be expo.-cd. The wife turns in her dilemma to Richard. Carlyle has previous!; no ticed that his wife and Richard aie much in each other's company.

The appointment is really one by which Richard is to meet Herbert and give him the money he need.; but Carlyle believeb it is a clandes tine meeting of his wife and Richard. He goes to the meeting place, boiling over with wrath. When Richard an ivos, Carlyle con- fronts him and accuscs him. A fight ensues, in which the younger man falls over the balustrade to dcath in the river.
