HOME TRADE NECESSARY TO

The Lost Manuscript
By ROBERT H. GILR0Y
STENTERTON at thirty
had made such rapid strides
as a theatrical manager that
I he owned two theaters. Every
I thing seemed to come his way. inelud
I Ing requited love, for he was engaged
to Miss Mildred Linn, the daughter
of Alonzo Benkanl Linn, a retired
merchant, perfectly able to portion her
off on the day of her wedding Every
thing was moving on oiled wheels
with Mr. Stenterton when trouble
came as a result of a bit of careless
ness.
Mr. Linn was possessed of literary
tastes, which on his retirement he pro
ceeded to cultivate. He wrote a novel
that proved quite a success. Then
his prospective son-in-law suggested
that he try his hand at a play. Mr.
Linn demurred on the ground that, not
having a knowledge of stage require
ments, he would not know how to tit
his play for production on the boards.
Mr. Stenterton told him that he would
gladly collaborate with him in that re
spect. Mr. Linn consented.
At the time its author handed it in
for perusal tho marriage between
Stenterton anu Miss Llnu was being
planned to take place in the near fu
ture. Then for tho tirst time it oc
curred to the young manager that a
criticism on a production ol' one whose
son-in-law he was about to become in
volved a rather delicate situation. Mr.
Linn had not shown himself amenable
to adverse criticism and if it were of
fered might lake offense and turu
against Ihe critic on tho eve of his
wedding. Mr. Linn was amiable, even
jovial, but tritle vain of his talents.
Stenterton, when he went to his rooms
o,*t he evenitiv ho received the manu
script. took it with him lie stopped
on the way at one of his theaters and
didn't reach his rooms till midnight.
It Was a week before he found an op
portunity to re.ul the manuscript, then,
alter hunting for it in every nook and
cranny of his rooms, came to the con
clusion that it was lost. This was
the bit of carelessness that brought
trouble.
The first thing he did vvas to make a
casual inquiry of ihe author if lie had
a duplicate copy of the play When he
received "no" for an answer the bot
tom seemed to drop out of the universe,
and when Mr. Linn added. "I've done
a lot of work on that piny, and if you
lose it I'll never forgive you." the
young man nearly swooned He
couldn't attend to business during the
day and couldn't sleep nights. Finally
a plan—a desperate plan, it is true
suggested Itself. He told Mr. Linn that
ho had read his play and had found it
immense. There was, however, a want
of smoothness in it consequent upon
its putting together. All that would

One day Mr. Linn, yielding to
his
daughter's solicitations, consented to
forego the treatment he had received
from her fiance so far as to permit the
wedding to take place. But he said
that for a wedding gift they must be
content with the play. He meant to
force Stenterton to get out of it what
there was in it.
Of course this was a disappointment
to the young couple but a great relief.
Arrangements for the wedding were
made. and. now that Mr. Linn had sat
isfied his pride In the matter of his
play, he seemed more amiable with re
spect to the approaching nuptials.
"Your wedding present will make you
rich, Mildred." he said. "It's worth
£."0.000, and I know it." "Rats!" ex
claimed Stenterton when he heard this.
"He talks just like every other ama
teur playwright. They all think there
is a fortune in their work but, thank
heaven, I'm out of the scrape!"
On the morning of the wedding Mr.
Linn handed the pair a box which, he
said, contained their wedding present.
"Hut I thought your play was to be
our present from you. papa," said Mil
dred "Have you relented?"
"Not at all. 1 said my play was
worth $."0,000. You'll get nothing from
me except that."
Meantime Mildred opened the box.
1 here was the missing manuscript.
I'°r heavens sake!" she exclaimed.
"How did you get it?" asked tlie
young man.
I O loft it in a carriage the even
ing I gave it to you. It had my name
on it. and it was returned to me."
Meanwhile Mildred turned up the
first leaf of the manuscript. "What's
this?

Mid
red threw her arms about her
fathers neck, while her lover's face

.vfter the wedding the manager read
the play and was so well satisfied with
its merits (hat he desired to stage it.
