We believe we can secure the information desired more quickly and more economically than we could by spending twice the sum by using solicitors and canvassers. The fairness of this offer at once appeals to the public from the fact that the Jiason i Risch product has'been sold for years exclusively upon a uniform or fixed price plan, all instruments being marked in plain Scares, which are conclusive as to price Therefore to all winners of Credit Certificates there Is an absolute assurance of a bona-fide reduction of the amount of the Credit Certificate on any New Piano you may select.

After be had gone away Rigby rubbed his forehead in ,-i bewildered sort of way and marveled at the nerve of the man. The day passed slowly, but late in tbe Afternoon the suspense became so keen that be found it difficult to keep himself from making inquiries of the proper officials as to whether affidavits had been filed by Barbert or any other person. His band did not shake now, but there was a steady pain at 'the back of his head. "Droom. I think I'll go home. If 1 don't appear in the morning you'll know I'm at some police station. Good said Ellas, with correcting j but could ifoi formally. Bansemer sat iu surly silence for a long time trying vo road. A fierce. jealousy was growing in his heart It was gradually dawning upon him that j tbe Cables had alienated his son's af- j fections to no small degree. The fear grew upon him Craydon ultimate- j ly would go over to 'them, forgetting j his father in the love for tbe girl. Re- sentment, strong and savage, flooded j his heart He could eat no dinner. He j was full of curses fur the fate which forced him to dine alone while his sou was off rejoicing with people whom he was beginning to hate with a fervor that pained him. Jealousy, envy, mal- ice, fired his blood. He went out ami bought the evening j papers- The thought came to him that j Graydon had heard the stories and was j deliberately staying away from him. j Perhaps the Cables bad been talking to i hitn. j "By heaven." he grated as he paused iu I'rout of his home, "if she's turned him against me I'll tura this city into anything but a paradise her. What a fool I've .been to wait so.long! I've given her tbe chance to tell her side of the c-ase first. She's made the first im- pression. What could I have been thinking of? Droom right I should have demanded less of her. A man is never too old to be a fool about women. Oh, if she's turned that boy against me He did not .finish tbe threat but started off swiftly through the tiight toward the Cable home. He had no especial object in view; it was simplj impossible for him to conquer the im- pulse to be uear bis son. Like a tbiei he lurked about the street in tbe vicin- ity of Cable's house, standing in the shadows, crossing and recrossing the street many times, always watching the lighted windows with hateful eyes. It was after S o'clock, and the night was damp with the first breath ,of spring. There was a slight chill in tbe air, but be did not feel it, although ha was without an overcoat. The lights on the second floor, he knew, were in Mrs. Cable's room. In bis mind's eye he could see Graydou there with the others listening to the story as it fell from prejudiced, con- demning pathetic, persuasive lips of a sick woman. He knew tbe effect ou the chivalrous nature of bis son; be could feel the coldness that took root in his boy's heart. A light mist began to blow in his face as paced back and forth along the short block in which the Cables lived. He was working bis imagina- tion up to a stare bordering on frenzy- la bis fancy he could hear Graydon cursing-him in of his ac- cusers. At tbe end of, the- street he could" see the break in the sea wall where Cable and bis wife bad met. and he, could not belp wishing that Droom had not pulled her from the water. Then he found himself wondering if they told Jane the story of her origin. The hope that she was still un- deceived flashed through him; It would give him a chance for .sweet revenge. He; confessed to himself that he was reckless. --The transactions of tbe past I few days had left him at the edge of j the abyss.
