I for got to introduce myself. You must Par Don my rudeness. I heard Yon preach this morning Bishop and seeing you passing now i thought Yon would not take it amiss if i ventured to Tell Yon How impressed i was with your ser Mon. The Bishop would have Mado some acknowledgement of the compliment hut Tho speaker did not give him time.

Was Edwards reply Only a few Days my business Here for j my visit is a one will not de Tain me Long and with but a limited i Hare no desire to a train. Indeed i pm sorry that 1 not delay my trip a Day longer. Thanksgiving Day away from Home is always Dull in Tho extreme. One misses the family dinner Asho spoke Tho Young Man in search of a Cigar carelessly threw open his Topcoat and the Bishop could see that he was faultlessly arrayed in evening dress. Thought Tho reverend gentle Man evidently a Well to do Young and he added aloud a responsive chord in his heart being touched at i the mention of the word i is one noes Leei roue in away irom one s own people on a Day like. This. Are you dining with friends even Ifo such answered Edwards quickly i Dine at the hotel. I la Havo Turkey of course and All that sort of thing but it will not seem the Samo old thanksgiving dinner to which i Havo been then he added earnestly Bishop if i did not feel that Yon would refuse me i would ask Yon to come and Dine with me this we can do much better than broke in the Bishop warmly. I would be pleased if you would come and Dine Frith us. We Are having but a Small family dinner and you would been tirely Welcome to share Edwards Surprise at this unexpected kindness must have been very apparent for the Bishop hastened to add his face beaming with Good will now i will listen to no objections for Yon can have none in reason. My Home is Only a Short distance up Madi Avenue and i see you Are quite pre pared to go still smiling with Good nature the worthy Bishop started up Tho Street Fol Lowed by Tho Man from Chicago pro testing but in truth rather feebly. On the Way the chicagoan explained to the reverend gentleman that his business in if new York was in connection with a Deal on change and that if the Bishop cared to speculate he might in a Day or two be Able to give him a valuable tip Whereat the Good Bishop chuckled inwardly for Here wag surely a splendid Chance to add to his finances. Thanking Edwards he hinted plainly that i Tako advantage of his offer and the broker for such he seemed to be expressed the pleasure it would afford him to be of any use to the Blihor. Tho thanksgiving dinner passed off Edwards proving himself a conversationalist. Just four people participated besides the Bishop and Edwards. These were Tho wife daughter and son of the Bishop and a brother a Well to do banker. The daughter about 22 years old was a tall slender Willowy girl fair of complexion with Clear Bine eyes and the traitor was assiduous in his attentions to her during the evening. The son was a Young Princeton Man and naturally the conversation at dinner turned a great Deal on football and on the Day s game. Edwards seemed thoroughly up in the game disc nursing with great fluency on various celebrities of Western Fame. His acquaintanceship with various Chicago clergymen All personal friends of Tho Bishop served to Advance him in the latter Good and taken All in All he made a very favourable impression on the whole fam ily. His easy Carriage his Graceful deportment and Well chosen language proved beyond a doubt that he was a j thorough gentleman and the Bishop congratulated himself More and More for having met him. Shortly after the party adjourned to do Ito two tej Zieker team log in to Edwards relict announced Liu intention of going Home and promptly Baid Good night. After an evening pleas Antly passed by All during which Tho visitor Only added to the Good Sioui lie had created earlier Edwards hinted that he was about to Leate. Wait a moment said the Bishop. The other Day i bought a painting which i was informed was u genuine Raphael. If you should happen to know anything about Art air. Edwards i would very much like to Havo you step into the Library and examine it Edwards. To Tell you the truth paint ing has always been one of my hobbies excusing themselves the Bishop and Iii guest crossed the Hall and found themselves in a Small but cozy Little i room in which were shelves Laden with i theological works a Largo writing desk a Small Safe and a couple of chairs. Edwards took in Tho situation with a Glauce and an observer would have seen a quiet Smilo of satisfaction on his handsome face. An Odd thing he did but something that Tho Bishop was too preoccupied to notice was to noiselessly turn Tho key in the door. This is the said the Bishop proudly. Tell to just exactly what you think of the chicagoan examined it with the air of an expert. You need have no said he at length after an apparently minute sur vey. It is a Raphael All right and 1 congratulate you on its the Bishop gave a Little sigh of Relief. Thank said he. I was afraid i might have been duped though i am Seldom Caugh t napping. us return one moment asked Edwards briskly. I wish you would sit Down As i have a somewhat lengthy communication to make to you. Why from the Bishop affably. Is it in reference to the in reference to a repeated the other. Bishop you have treated me with so much kindness since we first met that i am induced to put the Confidence in Yon which i would perhaps give to nobody else in the the Bishop smiled at Tho Young Man . Yon he went on. The subject is a delicate one not to be treated lightly. When i left Chicago three Days ago i Hod to leave in somewhat of a hurry and was forced to Start at hardly a moment s notice i had but Little time to pack and forgot a number of things that a gentleman always should have with him. Among others was my watch. A a business Man i am in constant need of a timepiece. I Seo you Are wearing one Bishop. Might i ask you to loan it to me merely to loan it to me for a couple of thundered the Bishop aghast. Of i ask you merely Man to Man. I rely on your goodness of heart As exhibited All evening not to refuse this the Bishop sat glaring in Miaw. Chair. He Mado no movement. His Chubby round face was apoplectic with rage. I come said Edwards Chang ing his Tenno. I have no time to waste discussing the the sight of the butt of a revolver half drawn from Edwards trousers pocket acted like an electric Shock of Tho Bishop. In a Canent Tho richly jewelled watch was on the floor at the i feet of the Man from Chicago. J that s said to. Now 1 my dear Bishop that Gold Cross around your neck.
