Lippincott co miss arc Eldou was not a Little sur prised herself and not especially Well satisfied. It had been a rather Desper ate leap with her eyes shut. The Gal Lantry intelligence and tincture of the West about the Man pleased her. The rest was a sacrifice for her father. To Braddon it was a thoroughly disagreeable Surprise. He could read men too Well to be deceived though i tried hard to convince himself that it was Only prejudice. It s All an old Man s he frequently said to himself. If Esther loves him what right have i to stand in her any with any of my he knew better than to hint at this distrust to Esther and silently sacrificed his own wishes to hers. All three would have been doubly surprised had the reality of each heart been readable. In the secret of his closet Braddon be rated himself mercilessly that the right Man had not been introduced. s All my fault yes All of he muttered for he and John Olmstead had instantly renewed their boyhood Friendship. They were Lille school churns again for awhile and Only they two knew Why it was that after Kobert returned from College Braddon never entered Olmstead s House again till he came to the funeral. I could t stand it Jack. I d make very picture of his Braddon Maicl and Olmstead understood. The result was that Stanton knew Thaddeus Braddon Only As everyone else knew the Brilliant White haired financier As Braddon of Era Don and had never spoken to hit. The Oil Man knew the Young lawyer through and through however. He had sacrificed a lifetime to his love for the boy s Mother and the boy was As like her As two drops of water from the same Spring. His interest in him was something phenomenal and when Stanton began his rapid strides to wards Fame there was no mortal half so proud of him As Braddon of Braddon Burridge. When alone with Esther lie sometimes dropped a word about John Olmstead s Nephew and for Long she knew him by no other name. He did it with studied carelessness it in woman s eyes there is a microscopic Lens for mental and. Sentimental work passing All under standing. Before Braddon considered Itiat his daughter had heard of the Young Man often enough even to have his existence impressed upon her she had come to the conclusion Lii at behind Jolius olm bread s Nephew Lay the secret Why her father had never married. Once Esther thought to please her father by suggesting that he bring the Young lawyer Home to dinner but it was received with such unexpected opposition that it was never repeated frequently and intensely Braddon regretted that opposition. I was a fool. She took me by he would say to himself. He said it most vigorously after Kichard Raymond Canic into prominence lie even Ines to bring it about that Esther should repeat the suggestion. She was never before so slow of comprehension but hint is lie would she never repeated it. On the evening of the 5th of Decem Ber. 3sfl2, Braddon was late and hurry ing Home to dinner. tie trustees of the Olmstead estate in passing him briefly reported that the Nephew had forfeited his rights and that another heir had filed his claim. It was merely item of news that might interest the banker is a Good portion of John olm Bucad e millions was held by Braddon i Burrige the two parted at once and each went his Way but the banker s checks were flushed his eyes flashed under his White brows. His blood boiled in spite of the years that should have it s a regular Olmstead he muttered. He s a fool. Is o. He s not. Confound him i respect him for it. I believe his Mother thought i insulted her by throwing a Fortune in her face asking her to change her mind. She said by marrying a poor Farmer. If stayed poor i believe she would have had me but i never savr it in that Light till this minute. This is precisely the sane thing Over cd Ain. Bleu tace Borl by he lie aka ii in Bis fee was Sui pick in v to sled to hide his excitement but still excited to be very glad they were to sit alone at . He heard Esther talking and smiled when she but paid Little further attention the was recounting a meet ing of her Reform club that Day at which had been elected chairman of the executive committee. Braddon nodded approvingly. Shame i Esther Eit claimed. How Young and unfitted i am for such a position if i can do the every Day work of the committee 1 shall be glad. At least i m determined to try and do my share. There s one thing in which i think 1 can accomplish some thing. They brought up the subject of a. Horrible system of matrimonial advertisements in the daily papers. I d no idea that there was such a thing at All list you Don t know papa How Hor Rible it is. A member read Souie advertisements she had Cut oui this very morning and it seems there the same Hind in almost every Day. She told of some that she had investigated in the past and of criminal As Well As moral wrong connected with them. I am to look up such cases As i can and to engage a lawyer at the club s expense to punish crime where Hind it. When i m Well posted i m going to see the editors of the newspapers about it by Liis time Dradon wag paying1 the utmost possible attention. Lie cared no More for matrimonial advertisements than he did for John Olmstead s millions. It was John olm Stead s Nephew he Washin Kingca. The moment there was a pause he said see Here Esther the idea is Allyc for o shrewdest Man to try and handle criminals. You want the Best lawyer you can secure and you want him at the Start. Otherwise you la crag your club into no end of trouble for even criminals have certain rights which they understand better than you and which it is dangerous to meddle with or ignore. The first thing you do you go to John Olmstead s 1 be Lieve he s the Best lawyer of his age in the state. Hell Tell you he s too Busy to give the matter attention but Don t let him slip. Ten minutes of his brain work is better than an hour from most. Take him on philanthropy. I under stand it s something of a Hobby with him. Don t you Otier to pay him or he won t look at you. To can earn ten times All that your club will pay with half the work you will require but he s forever throwing away Good business to give his time in Charity. Call it Charity. See and if that Don t work try moral Reform. He s head and front in a dozen moral reforms. And once you be secured him you re All following this advice Esther Cut from the next morning s papers All the obnoxious advertisements she could find. She read them Over with a shudder of horror that men and women could be so base and depraved. Une in particular signed fastened itself upon her mind. Thus that Prodigy of Genius and Brilliant Leader in philanthropy Charity and morality John Olmstead s Nephew. She knew him Well enough by sight and doubtless Stanton had frequently heard her name and even seen her Dur ing the brie period when he was most in society. Lie might almost have seen her yesterday and forgotten. There was a Strong similarity among women As he saw them. He never tried to re member unless they were in the wit Ness stand. As Braddon stepped into the ele Vator the operator was shewing another boy an item in the morning Herald which intensely amused them both. Always interested in what interested the Young she glanced Over their Shoul Ders to find them absorbed in Tho advertisement signed she remembered it and a. New horror chilled her to incl that even boys found entertainment in the pernicious matter and from it formed their notions of what real life would be for them too when they were old enough to enter in. As she crossed the Hall to Stanton s door she whispered indignantly Malcolm. Herald. Up town. She paused timidly upon the thresh old fully aware of the importance of the Man site was about to approach when the Oiler boy came Forward re marking Good us. Yer Loolen fur do if. Malcolm As add tired in tie Mornin Herald us he s right in Here before she could collect her thoughts the door of the private office had been opened Sho had entered and it had wr-1 r a. It an instant and Esther Thorndike Brad Cion was face to face with John him Stead s immaculate Malcolm. Her first thought was to get herself instantly away. The suggested that be very sure first that was right then Fly to her father with news of the Clay feet of his idol. Then a vein of. Amusement crept into the situation and when she found that she mistaken for an applicant her woman s wit suggested that she had a glorious Opportunity to investigate draw him out. Preach him a Sermon that should Wither him with shame then Tell him who she was Why she to him. And what every True Cwm would think of him. Upon this Bargai open Atmore. And he the end. The end itself was quite what she had she vent directly to her a her. She told about the will with is time limit and forfeiture of which he knew about the mistake in dates of which he did know about Lii Ehard which did not greatly Surprise about. Stanton s determination to retain the property of which he highly approved about the matrimonial cd Erti Semont and the plan for a limited which certain or act him Esther bad i Mitred it might of All she called together All her courage Drew u Long quivering breath and with fear and trembling As she thought of what sue had Tice what her angry Indig Nant sympathetic heart bad prompted her to say and do to help John him Stead s Nephew and punish Killiard Raymond. With wet Cheeks she looked up to her father for his verdict. If thaddcus Bra Dou could have been left alone for the next five minutes he would have Given half his Fortune but he was not left alone. Esther s Ai Sious troubled face was right before my. Lie saved the half of his Fortune but he ran a great risk of internal combustion of some kind which might have been much worse. He did his Best to look serious and grave while she continued you know papa 1 did t really want to marry or. Raymond at any time. 1 never wanted to marry anyone and i never shall want to. It will not matter at All if 1 am bound in this Way so that 1 can t. Don t you think 1 did right "1 Erfe etly right Braddon said solemnly. "1 will look into this matter of Raymond at once and if the halt is True i will have a word with him. Lie will not annoy you after that. Any arrangement you have made wit i John him Stout s Nephew will be perfectly Safe and honorable rest assured. Now do you go right Home and rest till the time comes. Carrying is a Tough pull on the however you do it and you la need All your strength. I la Tell you what Well do Esther. You go through this thing like a major.
