11 S Wnliiwrifiht and his friend. Dr.
ZJV Forbes, sat wniting: in tlie
I house of which the titular
head was Mr. Wjilter Blount
of Laramie. Wyo.. Andrew entered
tle drawing room, wearing his de
ferential aspect f the old family re
tainer, somewhat inclined to garrulity.
"Mr. Blount ham bee-u informed of
your call, sirs." he said. "He will Pee
yon, sirs, at once. He bowed again.
I hope, sirs, you won't ir.iiul if 1 go
on with a few bits of my work here,
ns it's so late."
"Oh. certainly not." Wninwrlcht said.
Indifferently. Next came tbe entrance
of Walter, who halted just within tbe
doorway, and looted from one to the
other of his guests, in obvious per
jexity between the two es to which
aibiht be Mr. Waiiiwrigut. That ceoi
tlenian, standing up and smiling, went
forward with Lis hand outstretched.
"I am Mr. Wainwright," he said, as
Le shook hands with his host, "and I
inust e'l you that l'iu XEfcly glad to
meet ycu again I" The emphasis on
the last word was significant. Then,
Le turned toward tV physician: "This
is Lr. Forbes, a particular friend of
mine, who was good enough to accom
pany me. He is the superintendent of
the I'owhattan asylnm for tle insane."
The three men were sea: id near one
I called," Wainwright explained
simply, "in order to deliver in person
the thanks you Mere at such pains to
escape last niirht."
"Walter beamed pleasantly.
"Oh. that's all right," he exclaimed,
breezily. "Of course. I knew you to
night the minute I caught tight of your
face, though the name didn't explain
anything to me whi n your card was
brought. I only did what any one
would. It's not worth mentioning."
"My dear sir," Wainwrigbt returned
earnestly. "I mnst insist on mention
ing it- Why. but for you I should
surely have been shot. You struck up
that fellow's Laud just in lime."
"Awfully glad I happened along as I
did." Wnltqr said genially. "Have
they 'aught the man?" he inquired In
terestedly after Andrew Lad served
lights to the smokers.
Wuinwrirht shook his head.
"No, I'm sorry to say, they hare
rot," he replied with disgust In his
voi'-. "The scoundrel really made a
onderf ill getaway. And that reminds
n:e. Mr. IMount how did you contrive
to disappear so soon?"
Why, the fact is" he said with an
assumption of yreat canclor. "I'm a
strnrjger in New York, and I knew, of
course, there'd le a biir hullabaloo
about a thing like this, an 1 I hate no
toriety police courts and so on, you
understand newspapers too. So when
1 saw the fellow that attacked you had
skipped I had the idea that I'd do the
same thing, though for a different rea
son. I just mixed in tbe crowd a min
ute and then slipped around the corner
into the next block and came home."
He chuckled complacently mid then
e!dd, in order to change the topic,
15ut how'd you manage to find meV"
"Well, now." Wainwrigbt answered,
"that's a bit old loo. An anonymous
persou -alled uie up on the telephone
at my pla-e last night after I got back,
said he'd been among those present at
my little adventure, had seen my res
cuer and had cuessed afterward that
I might like to know who it was. and
be gave me your name and address."
Walter perceived that Andrew was
bow occupied in rearranging some
niagnztnes on the large trble. and he
recalled the memorandum prepared for
bis guidance. Yes, the Oreat White
Way! That must Ik introduced next.
He sioke mechanically.
Fuuny." he corimented. "You see,
I know so few people in New York."
Ir. Forbes peered with curiosity at
tbe young man.
"You're a strnr.ger here, you say,
Mr. mount?"
"Y'es." was the answer, very cheer
fully gfvfti. for now tbe thief saw bis
war t.- carry out the required instruc
tion. "And I cs n't say that I like your
town very much. Of course there are
pim thing right enough. I'll admit

mother came on east to meet sis c,
who's just got back from Europe, 1
took this place so we could all be to
get her .for awhile. Dad's been josh
ing me about getting homesick." he
added, with a shamefaced grin that
acknowledged some Justice in the
charge. "He says I won't be able to
stick It out for a year, but I think I
will maybe just for a stunt."
"Where is your home, may I ask?"
Wainwright Inquired.
"My home town is Lirainie. Wyo.
Of course I'll have to admit that it's a
dinky little place, but I like it at that
Y'ou see, everybody's your friend out
there." Andrew had gone to a win
dow at the far end of the room a fact
duly observed by his pupil. "Y"es: ev
erybody's your friend out there." he
related, with a hint of emotion in his
voice, "but here it's so hard to get ac
quaintedthat is. with the right sort."
"If I can ! of service to you in any
way" Wainwright suggested.
"Oh. I don't mean to butt in," Wal
ter declared modestly.
Wainwright smiled in friendly fash
"I'm glad you did last night." be
said emphatically.
"Oh. that! Rut. say. have you got
any idea why this particular man tried
to kill you or who he was or any
"Nothing definite.' Vainwnght re
plied. "I dare say it was just some
one with a grievance. You may hap
pen to know. Mr. Blount, that I was
for some years district attorney here.
During my term of service I was com
pelled to send a good many men to
prison, first and last, and some even
to the electric chair." Asthelani words
were spoken Andrew, who had been
surreptitiously watching the speaker,
turned his face instinctively to hide
from view the distortion of hate that
transformed it. "Y"es," Wainwright
continued, unwitting the feeling arous
ed in one of his hearers; "a good many
criminals have come to hate me."
"Gee." Walter ejaculated, "it gives
me a chill just to think of it!"
"Ob. you'd soon get used to it!"
Wainwright returned indifferently.
Walter shook his head violently.
"Yes." he agreed. "I suppose it's all
in tbe day's work: but. just the same,
the idea of receiving threatening let
ters and all that sort of dope"
Wainwright Interrupted. "My secre
tcry usually destroys them at once."
"There Is one notable exception." Dr.
Forbes observed in his characteristical
ly precise manner of speech as he re
folded his hands carefully and smiled
a wintry smile. "I refer to tbe white
card episode."
The. white card episode?" Walter re
leated. Wainwright's face lost its rather
bored aspect.
"Ah. the white card!" he said thought
fully. "Yes. that Is something differ
ent. And tt? white card is siill com
ing coming from some very mysteri
ous person, a sort of genius in his
way." He rut a hand into the breast
pocket of his coat and drew forth a
bit of white cardboard, which he ex
tended toward his host. "This is one
I received yesterday."
Walter, who had examined the card
curiously, looked up in disappointment
as be returned It to its recipient.
"Why, there's nothing on It," be com
plained. "What's the idea? Is it from
somebody you sent up?"
"It carries a message In spite of its
being blank," Wainwright said somber
ly. "As to your question, no. it is not
from some one I sent vp. I've never
seen tbe man that sent me this and
tbe others like it, and promises to send
me more, of different colors."
Wainwright then proceeded to de
scribe the Allen murder, tbe sentence
and the threatening developments
! Walter'a desire for details concern
big tbe curious situation outlined by
Wainwright was thwarted by the en
trance of Mr. and Mrs. Blount, pursu
ant to Andrew's privately conveyed In
structions to them. Husband and wife
were in eTening dress. He sprang up.
as his guests rose, and introduced the
twain as his father and mother.
I'm right glad to meet any friend
of my son's." the husband affirmed, i
"He prored himself my friend last
'night." "Wainwright
said. Blount '
ra fas;
"Yes. be happened to be right on the
Job. dldnt he?"
Mrs. Blount, who did not approve
of being left out of any conversation
In her neighborhood, interposed hospi
tably, as she arranged her ample form
in a chair near the guests.
. "Now, do sit down." she urged, and
beamed on first the one visitor and
then the other. She felt a triumphant
pride in her iosition here as hostess
in metropolitan society and wished
that, tbe members of the Mothers"
club of Laramie, Wyo.. might see her
now, entertaining thus intimately two
distinguished geutkmen of New York
city. Wainwright remarked, as be
seated himself in a chair facing his
hostess "I fear we are detaining you."
"Not a bit. you ain't." Mrs. Blount
asserted, with forcefulnesj. "Father
and Lucene and I were just going out
to have dinner at soim restaurant, and
we ain't in any hurry at all."
Mr. Blount re-enforced his wife's
"No, siree, we ain't in any rush.
We've got a taxi waiting." the west
erner went on as he cieiied a cigar
case. "Let Jt wait. I say. Mother end
I don't come to New York often, and.
when we do come why. darn the ex
pense! Eh? Ain't that right, mother?"
Dr. Forbes made an effort to sus
tain a share in the conversation by ad
dressing Biount. "You come from the
cattle couutry. I hear."
"It used to be a real cattle coun
try," was the answer, "but nowadays
it's all sheep. It's good business, too,
all right, though the smell of those
critters is something awful. The last
few years have been wonderful. I tell
you. sir. Why. I can remember when
II cents for wool was considered a
very good price. But two years ago
we got . That's som price for raw
wool. lelieve me. But of course no
one knows what this new tariff"
Walter Interrupted the speaker with
an admirable imitation of the pert
son's rude manner toward the father.
. "Now. dad. for heaven's sake, don't
you get started ui the t.-iriC."
"No. John." Mrs. Bloimt tittered. "1
wish I had a dollar for every hour I've
had to listen to that stuff." She turn
ed her eyes on Walter. "I wish, my
dear," she said In tones expressive of
deepest maternat pride, "that you'd go
and ask Lucene to please hurry."
Walter stooj up obediently.
"Yes. mother." he said, "if you will
excuse me to our guests." And be
hurried from the room.
IMount took advantage of the refer
ence to the daughter of the house to
enter again into the conversational
"i'es, Mr. Wainwright, and you. doc
tor, we're just naturally some proud
f that girl of ours. Y'ou might think
four yars in France would spoil a
girl. So it might some of them. I
guess. But not our girl! Why, Bucene
is just crazy to get borne again out
to Laramie. Wyo."
"I don't know, fnthrr." the wife said
doubtfully. "I'm afraid she'll never
be really satisfied here in her own
country any more."
"I guess that's right," said Walter,
who had re-entered in time to hear
his mother's remark.
Blount waved an arm in vehement
Then the visitors stood up quickly,
looking toward the d rwny. Lucene
had paused there, and her b!ue eyes,
:iow darkly lustrous, vnere fixed on
Wainwright in a gaze that penetrat
ed to his soul.
