But finally he Buret out a i can to see it As you do Windward. I see simple villainy and that of a detestable sort. I am Hall inclined to go to a to the a old Man a a exclaimed Windward astonished and half amused. A yes to the a old a replied Stevens sternly. A Well a a cried Windward at a loss what to say. He admired his friends courage and honesty and yet somehow it seemed ridiculous. At that moment a snoek sounded on the door. Windward opened it and found or. Atwood standing in the entry. A is or. Stevens Here Quot he asked. A nah yes How de do. In a suddenly called to new York and the old Man has a lot of dictation. You said you had picked up a Little shorthand. Would you mind making a night of it you might work into a regular situation you Stevens coloured and exchanged a significant glance with Windward. A Why i done to mind a he said painfully aware of falling from the heroic to the sensible ret Happy and excited at a proposal that add out such possibilities. Chapter xvii. The Ikon Duke. Stevens found the Iron Duke like All great americans easily accessible the Call boy who took up the card returned with a request that the visitor come up at once and so following the servant Stevens proceeded directly to an upper room in the hotel where the Railroad Man was found alone and busily writing at a disorderly desk. J a de 4% a. La a sir. Stevens Quot he asked glancing at the card. A yes sir a a the visitor replied a Little Cho kingly in spite of his Wrath and Reeo Lution. He had lived in Washington Long enough to lose his fear of statesmen but Here was a Man who made senators and used them to run his errands. It was not surprising that in the August presence of millions Tho Young clerk s voice faltered. A from or. Atwood Quot asked the magnate courteously yet with the Economy in speech of a Man whose time was Worth anywhere from a Mere routine two thousand a week to half a million minute. A yes. Sir. Aud As he spoke the Young Man studied the Railroad King. It was a Stern face the Young Man fronted a heavy stolid cruel face. The head was big and round the Throat Short and thick the shoulders and Chest Broad the whole Frame Burly. He too was Strong animal quite a match for those Windward had admired at the Diplomat Istle. Quite a match also Stevens thought for an intriguing Secretary. A Hor exclaimed Ute magnate. A Smit ten with bras buttons is she a the magnate signified that the dictation should begin and lie set the Pace at the Speed of one of ii is express trains resting As rarely and for As Brief inter vats. Possibly he was testing the new Engineer. The stenographer had no time to catch the bearing of the flying words but even in his modest Speed to could not help perceiving one extraordinary feature of the correspondence in the course of two or three confidential notes to gentlemen who seemed to be special friends the a old Many betrayed the company a and presumably Ilia own secrets precisely on i a lines which or Atwood had taken a few hours Previ of univ. This discovery effectively Dis Pellet whatever promptings to denounce treason lingered in Stevens purpose Ani it father transferred his indignation from servant to master. A that in nil a said the magnate finally a now you la extend tic letters by break fast a Stevens knew that inert it an All nigh Allision but he would not weaken or disappoint the hard Rich Man. A a yes sir a he said finally. A fall right a from the magnate. A can Yon come again to Morrow a a a in a in a department a said Stevens. The magnate grunted his displeasure a Well get out of it a yes if i could find work a said Stev ens desperately. A something to make me Worth a Money a interrupted Tho Railroad King. A Well maybe Stevens wa3 angry and reckless. It was none of this coarse Rich Man s Busi Ness still he must find 1 vent. A no a own Impi i Lovo a woman who wont Nave me. Now a Money to Duy Herr a easily a observed the King with the most irritating coolness. A is she married sit Down sir Well discuss what is impertinence in co Mem people is often Only kindly interest in the Case of a millionaire and tolerated to say the least. Stevens blushed redder yet but he sat Down and said. A no she Isnit a not married a repeated the King a Well so she wont have Yon. That a what they always a i Haven t asked her a said Stevens looking very sour and sheepish. The latter part of the interview was rapidly becoming More awkward even than the first. It now seemed the magnate s turn to show anger and impatience. A a Haven to asked her a he exclaimed a Why not a a because a replied Stevens sullenly a i know she would refuse a Well suppose she did a retorted the magnate testily. A my wife did that a part of the a but she ought to refuse me a cried Stevens determined to have no mercy on himself a i am not the Man for a dammit a was the Kings profane Bat very expressive comment on this in enl speech. And then for the first time he smiled and his tone grew gentle As he said a what sort of a woman is she anyway a just Here there came a tap at the door and the servant entered bearing a Sena tors card. A Tell him i la be disengaged in a few minutes a said the magnate and then telling to the Young Luau when they a Ere alone once More he said with strange tenderness a come Tell me about your girl a a she is a Beautiful Young woman Aud All that a Good. In be thought of her for years and now she is Here visiting her brother my Best Friend but she is not for me i see a Why a demanded the King. A Well to such a commonplace individual i suppose for one reason a replied Stevens in a tone of self contempt. A commonplace a retorted the million Aire. A Gad i done to think so and it Back my judgment of in against f a Well then a continued Stevens sulk Fly a i think she loves or at least favors another a Man she has met Here a lieu tenant in the a How exclaimed the magnate. A smitten with brass buttons is she guess Quot he added dryly a a it is she no1 you that is commonplace. A How old is she a a about 22, i a Humph a muttered the King his harsh manner returning. A old enough to know better. You might expect such tricks in eighteen. Are you sure she Isno a fool a silly shallow woman with All her Stock in the front window like French shop a a no indeed a exclaimed Stevens. A she is a True Fine a yes i suppose so a replied the King snappish by and yet with a smile. A Well then go for her. Tell her you love her there is no love potion like a declare Hon that generally does Tho business after one or two refusals anyhow. Anc Don t be bluffed. Keep at her. The worn in have a saying among themselves that a persevering Man is the enemy of the Here he Rose to indicate after the manner of no anarchy that Tho interview had terminated and stretching out his hand to the Young Man said a Efu expect you in the morning. I wis you Well with the girl Don t be afraid Oil her or of that Tup Enny lieutenant either let us see have i your address a a i live where or. Atwood does at mrs. Exp so said Stevens. A nah yes a replied the magnate. A your lady lives a there also a said Stevens. A miss Bassett is her name and the lieutenant name is quire and he boards with us too. There i think you have it All now a he smiled As he spoke in spite of him self. The King bowed gravely. A i believe understand the situation. I bid you Good evening Stevens walked briskly Home excited and exhilarated by the interview. Somehow to could not Tell Why he believe the tide had changed and was now on the flood. Without definite cause for exultation he Felt triumphant perhaps i was the simple magnetism of the great Man he had just left who always sue needed. Be Tho reason what it might the spirit of Victory was in his heart and it shone in his features As he entered the chamber where Windward was impatiently awaiting his return. A you did no to Tell him i fancy a he said smiling. A no but sometime ill Tell you an in fore sting tale a replied Stevens mysteriously. Aud that was All Windward was Able to get out of him so finally in despair he changed the subject. A you missed some Good stories Peter by being away a he said a Lieut. Quire was in our rooms for a while Aud told a lot of a yarns about Jelly fish that curled like Apple pairings Abd the games sailors have aboard ship and How he climbed a Volcano. Say Stevens what do you think about quire anyway a a i done to know a airily replied Stevens the confidant of millionaires. A a he a a Good enough sort of a fellow handsome and All that a a Jolly Young sea dog a by the Way i suppose a a Young sea dog is a sea Puppy of i like a a he a very entertaining a ventured Windward inra Foer \ by lied manner. A evidently thou Gnu arid secretly he thought his Friend might be a Little More communicative. A of. Vee entertaining a replied Stevens with the severity of a judge a but he is not an upright Man nor a Man of much character. He is Good enough company for an Idle a Well Well this is a new vein for Stevens a mused Windward. Yoe something was up indeed there was Aud nothing less than the spirit and will of Young America. Chapter xviii. A temporary Supply. Fie Leanetti Over to Stevens Ami whimpered after scarcely More than a Nap Stevens came to the breakfast table the next morning in a very battered condition. He was eating his breakfast with a Rel ish however when the servant brought in a card for him which paralysed his appetite Oti the instant. A the gentleman said head like to see you a moment a explained the servant. A certainly a exclaimed Stevens tossing his Napkin into the buckwheat cakes and Rushing out of the room. Miss Sophia leaned Over and took up the Carli the Young Man had left beside his plate. Why Liddy a she exclaimed a it must be or. Atwood he wants Tosee. Or. Atwood left yesterday. A no miss he said or. Stevens a replied Liddy. A Well i wonder what he wants of or. Stevens a exclaimed the amiable spinster handing the card to her neighbor the lieutenant he was at a loss to know in fact guess. And her query ran around the table unanswered. Even Windward was forced to confess he could not Tell. What on Earth could the magnate want of Peter Stevens it took away not Only his appetite but All their appetites. A a in a going into the Back parlor where i eau get a Good look at him a a whispered miss Sophia. A i Ani too a whispered Florence. A Quick before he gets away a a pshaw Floy be quiet a expostulated mrs. Bassett and then she got up and followed Tho two Young ladies. Meanwhile Stevens had gulped Down his last Mouthful and had met his visitor in the parlor who apologized for interrupting him at his meal and said he found it necessary to walk that Way and had called for the notes. Just Here there was a Rustle of dresses in the Back parlor and flitting vision of ladies passing to and fro on what were probably fictitious errands were to be seen a will expect you at my rooms at 8 o clock to night a said the magnate. And then his business despatched his manner underwent a magical change. He leaned Over to Stevens and whispered a a let a six your girl a and As he spoke he winked he did Tho magnate winked. Of course after this there was nothing. To do but to present the ladies a feat Stevens accomplished with a tact and ease sin prising to himself and in the Patter of compliments and Small talk that followed he again appeared to advantage t there was something in Tho magnates society that aroused what was Best in him and brought it into play. As for the ladies they were delighted and All smiles while the magnate unbent and was As Jolly and noisy As a boy. But it was soon Over for their visitor kept one Eye Oil his watch and after a few moments excused himself promising to Call soon again. Miss Sophia accompanied him to the door heard him repeat his directions to Stevens bade him a sweetly Adieu a closed the door slowly and regretfully after a last look at his retreating figure and then with cunning negligence dropped Ixia card on the top of the collection on Tho tray where it staid All that Winter in spite of dusting and fresh cards and the havoc of gusts of wind or careless servants. Miss Sophia and Stevens return to the parlor to find All tongues wagging in Praise of their new acquaintance. A the is certainly very agreeable a said mrs. Bassett. A i say Stevens a chimed in the lieu tenant gayly a a in be got to go to new York soon. You got to a pass could you a a a rent to you glad we slipped in a exclaimed Floy to miss Sophia. A i think he a charming and not a bit a a How funny it Felt to shake hands with him a cried miss Sophia a it was like taking that $10,000,000 bundle of Bonds in your hand at Tho Treasury Only he a alive a a a in be read in the papers a said the lieutenant a that he a just of simple and kind and fond a Man in his family As you can inn be. A it Sou Airt wonder a said Mise Sophia reflectively. A Why or. Stevens How did you get acquainted with him a of in a doing some work for him a was the modest reply. Windward All this time said nothing but he had noticed everything and it was beyond him. Something was a but what a that was the question. Well he should know As soon As anybody and meanwhile he was Happy to see Stevens so Happy and he rejoiced to see him showing at length in his fairest colors and to be again taking Sis in the old times a Central place. Certain it was his Stock had risen a Hundred per cent within half an hours such was not an uncommon occurrence in neglected stocks that were suddenly found to be enjoying the magnates favor and support. When finally Tho excitement had died Down and the two friends were left alone Windward congratulated Stevens very heartily on his Opportunity. A i fear a said Stevens a that this will interfere with my evening work on the claim for i suspect the a old Many is exacting and i want to do Well a of course a replied Windward humbly. A fall i ask is As quire said that you give me a pass now and then when you Are running the a seriously a said Stevens and his face at that moment did not belie his words a a i think this May be my Chance. It is possible that Here and now is a great crisis in my life. A he seemed anxious to say something More he looked troubled and a Wistful appealing expression came into his eyes which Windward had noticed there before and did not understand. But he did not speak the time was not quite Ripe or perhaps his courage so dauntless the foregoing night now failed him. A was to evening said Windward finally a i Don t believe i shall do so much at that myself hereafter. We have got the claim into Good working shape and besides there Are More important things in life than a very True a replied Stevens and looked Down. They were both keeping something Back. Each Felt the other was reserved but they both knew All would be confessed and made Clear in Good time. As the ease stood they could not talk but they parted with a smile of Confidence and love. It was the memory of such scenes no doubt that inspired the great lord Bacon to write in Iris essays that a unmarried men make the but chapter Xix. Only friends. A ofes a who were Windward a you know it is you i love.1 it was the claim therefore that evening that had the go by. Stevens scratching away again for dear life at the hotel at the dictation of the magnate who set a furious Pace and kept it up for hours. But finally he stopped and instantly his peremptory manner vanished and was succeeded by the half amused and yet sincerely kind bearing which Char tented him us soon a lie touched on the personal relations of Ilia new protege. Stevens was still gathering his papers together when the magnate suddenly leaned Over toward him much As he had done in Tho parlor in Tho morning Aud exclaimed a a she a a Nice girl very pretty Aud look too As if she could bake Good bread. Id go for her. Give Lier some Flowers. Well be Here at eight of clock to Morrow evening. Windward meanwhile was spending Tho evening very differently though the claim was having no better attention from him than from his truant partner. But poor thing it was used to neglect Windward it had appeared that night after dinner was to devote the evening to miss Willis and the theatre not much to Floyd a liking for she wanted to go herself and she did not care to have her brother take that Willis girl so often. Possibly she intimated As much to the lieutenant who had followed the ladies into the Parlours or perhaps he dim nod the unspoken trouble for Mendelssohn did not write off the songs without words. At any rate lie was the sort of Man who when in doubt Playa a Trump especially if the suit is hearts and so to spoke out manfully at once a suppose we Don t let Windward have a the fun lets All four make a party and go a a Tho quartet taking in Stevens miss Sophia Florence and him self As indicated by a Graceful gesture. But then of course Stevens had to plead his engagement with the magnate and miss Sophia was tied up it seemed in a Church festival a he Kney Al the hate be amp Tia firt Ltd third Page
