"That will suit me very well indeed."
Waiiiwriubt agreed.
"That hour makes a particular ap

out of the room.
Alone together husband and wife
prized loiis into each other's face. " He
bent and kissed the tender lips. When
the caress was done the spoke patheti
cu!!y: "(Mi. Cortland, darling, what have I

"There, there, dearest!" he answered
Font'iinsiy. "You are not to be blamed
in any way. not even by yourself. You

"Wain wright directed briskly, with the
preer-ion ," one who has exactly de

He kissed her again hurriedly, but
very fond!y. and put her from him.
Marshall returned.

where his wife had left the receiver

Wainwrisht hung up the receiver at

"Well, at least, that much lias been

promised to cume over here at once.

"ISnt I do imt understand just what

wonderingly. "You told Lim that Au

in. Marshall, in response to a gesture
from Waiuwright. shut the door.
"Look here. Cortlandt!" I'.lount
stormed, his big voice rumbling hoarse
ly. "What the d;'il does this tVllow
mean by routing us out of bed at this
unholy hour of the niht?"
Mrs. Elount, too. and Walter addi-d
their querulous complaints.
"Shut U the lot of you!" Wain
wright commanded liereeiy.
Waiuwright had turned his gaze full
un the westerner at the beginning of
the outburst.
"You were saying. Mr. Morgan" he
lllouut shrank as from a blow, and
his ruddy face grew gray.
' "Wh what? Yv'hat's that?"
Waiuwright was explicit enough.
"I said. "Mr. Morgan Mr. Henry
Morgan, to be exact alias, lliack
Hank.' '
Blount mopped his forehead with a
handkerchief that became quickly
wringing wet with the perspiration
that had gushed forth rt this open
mention of a name that made audible
all his terror of the law's vengeance
against him for many offenses against
it. "I Lave no idea as to what you
are talking about!" he answered.
"Waiuwright stuiied with scorn.
"Perhaps," he remarked dryly, "your
wife may prove more intelligent than
you appear to be."
"Me? Why, the idea!" she cried
hysterically. "Me? The idea!"
Waiuwright regarded the excited wo
man with eyes in which there was no
pity. Ilis voice as he addressed her
again was metallic:
"Yes, you. Sadie!"
The woman winced percc-pMbly.
"That is a respectful way for yu
to speak to your mother-in-law, ain't
it. now?" she demanded indignantly,
with a disdainful toss of her head.
"Y'ou ought to lie ashamed of yourself,
Ctrtland. So you should. 'Sadie, in
deed!" Waiuwright permitted himself anoth
er smile.
"Y"es. 'Sadie, indeed!' " he agreed
whimsically. "I might say Milwaukee
Sadie, in fact!"
"Oh. rats!" she cried. Aud, having
so said, she flopped down into a chair
which creaked complainingly. Be
tween sobs her voice sounded luguhri-onft-
"ud Just when everything was
going so nice too!"
Walter thrust out Ids jaw in proc
lamation of the st lung will power he
did not possess and essayed a tone of
rather haughty remonstrance.
"Say. Cortland. I :m shocked and
surprised greatly surprised. Honest to
God. I don't know what"
Wain wright's eyes sparkled angrily.
"Oh. so you don't know, eh?" he said
Icily. "Well. I do. Mr. Slocum."
The collapse of the fellow was al
most ludicrously swift. Lie could only
mumble a feeble attempt at a ques
tion, while his gaze shifted furtively,
"M Mister what?"
"Mr. Slocum," Wainwright retorted,
with clear emphasis, that suggested no
doubt as to the fact; "alias Diamond
Blount, criminal though lie had been
for most of his life, was nevertheless
a man and possessed of a man's spirit.
The westerner spoke with a certain
plain sincerity that became him.
"Well. Mr. Wainwrisht." he said
gmfL'y. discreetly relinquishing the
more familiar form of address, "what
are you going to do with us? Give it
to us straight now. There's no use ii:
heating about the bush. What are v,
going to get?" "
There came a little lighteuiug ol
Wain wright's face as he listened. Hi
answer was prompt, but cryptic:
"It all deHjuds."
"Mr. Waiuwright. for God's sake. sir.
give us the chance! cried Blount.
"It is not impossible that 1 shall do
so." was the answer. "Certainly 1 shall
give you the chance you ask for on
one condition."
"The weather leaten face of the west
erner shone radiant. ?
.."It is simply this." Waiuwright went
ou. including the three in a searching
glance. "I require the services of all j
of-you just for tonight. I nm about tc

Marshall gave a grunt of reluctant
assent, but consoled himself by frown
ing violently at these offenders against
the law.
"It is necessary." "Waiuwright went
on In a colorless voice, "that you should
stand by me tonight again st him." A
slight pause before the final pronoun
gave it significant emphasis.

"What are you goi.13 to do with us7".
Blount who put the general emotion
of the criminals into a single word, ut
tered with an expression of horrified
"Yes," Wainwright replied blr.ndly,
though somewhat astonished by the
latent eP.'eet of the announcement on
his proposed confederates, "I mean An
drew, as he calls himself, the man who
brought you here." He looked from
one to another of the trio before him.
"Well?" he exclaimed sharply after
a long pause. His imperious look fixed
ou Blount aiul remained there. The
westerner spoke hesitatingly.
"How do you mean?" he asked.
Wainwright proceeded with his in
structions as though unaware of the
apprehensiou under which the three
were laboring.
"A gentleman will soon be here." he
said briskly, "whom. I believe, you
have all met already. Iu Lis presence
you will continue to be what I have
hitherto thought you to be. In other
words, you are to appear in your fa
miliar roles as my relations by mar
riage, as the family of my wife."
At this simple eiucidatiou of the pri
mary requirement, the agitated crim
inals plucked up a. little more spirit.
Walter voiced the feeling:
"Hub! That's a pipe!"
Wainwright continued with undimin
ished complacency lu his manner:
"In addition to this you will hold your
selves in readiuess, all of you, to sub
stantiate, when called on. whatever I
tuny say."
"Sure, we'll do that!" Blount ex
claimed, cheerfully. "But you say it
will afi'e1 1 him Andrew?"
Wainwright nodded assent.
"Yes." he agreed, ' it will be aliout
him. I shall do the talking. You will
understand fast enough when the time
comes. All you have to do will be to
follow my load. There will lie na trou

At the Bar.
K the interval of time that elapsed
I after his interview with Wain
1 wright, Andrew had chosen to
shut himself In the seclusion of
the cupola room, where he held com
munion with his thoughts while await
ing the appointed hour for the render
ing of his enemy's decision. As to
what that decision would lie the Mas
ter Mind had small doubt, nor did he
feel cuy concern over the result should
the improbable occur, and Wainwright
refuse thus to give up his political
In such case the effect would be se
cured none the less.
There was no means by which Wain
wright would be able, so far as An
drew could surmise, to prevent pub
licity. And publicity would be enough
The Master Mind would le at pains to
secure the widest notoriety for the re
ports most likely to do his enemy
harm. His work would be eagerly aid
ed by Wainwright's iolitical foes, who
were many aud powerful. The victim
would become a laughing slock or an
object of contempt. He could no long
er command a following of loyally de
voted followers.
It mattered not at all whether the re
ports concerning him should Ik? the
truth or garbled distortions. Either
would be fatal iJ his high ambitious
The public could never agaiu respect
as their chief a uiau who had been s
hoodwinked as to consort intimately
with notorious criminals, to receive
them into his household, to accept
them as his closest relatious, to mak
one of them his wife, wliom, but for
timely exposure, lie would have made
mistress of the executive mansion of
tlie greatest state of the Uniou.
: Andrew's complacency waxed as he
considered the fact that his enemy
could not escape out of the toils.
There could be no ingenuity sufficient
to extricate the captive of his plottin
Wiiin wright had only the option of ab
dicating from his iosition of leader
ship quietly and without scandal. aldi
eating absolutely for his lifetime or ot
being forced out ignominiously by pub
lic scandal. Of course he would resist
to the utmost, but the ultimate effect
of all resistance could avail naught
Even at this moment, doubtless, h
was employing every resource of his
excellent brain power in contriviu
sttme method of self defense. Andrew
smiled nt the thought. Let the poor
prisoner of his wiles work his subtlest
it would only make the game more di
verting, the end no less certain. Tht
struggles of this hapless fly within the
meshes of the web gave greater zest
to the glee of the remorseless, gloatin;
slider, which watched and waited con
tcntediy for an end that was certain.
The Master Mind continued his sat
isfaction in the triumph of his schem
Ing I'V reviewing the events that had
led through sure stages to this cul
initiation. His heart was agaiu stirred
with the familiar, stabbing pain of his
loss as fie thought of the brother whom
he had so loved, unjustly done t
shameful death, l'et somehow, now
in the hour of his victory, there was
something less poignant in his emo
tion than ever hitherto. Andrew mar
veled at this with a cyxious feeling of
alarm over his own lack of sensibility
He could not understand how the great
passion of his life should be thus less
ened. True, there had been years in
tervening since first death broke in on
love and turned its vital forces intc
hate against another. Yet the mere
passage of time could not explain this
change, for his hate had not moderat
ed in the same period. On the con
trary, it had increased even, never los
ing aught of its virulence, rather add
ing always to it. Still. Andrew puz
zled over this startling problem. It
was inconceivable that in the moment
of conquest the very motive itsrff ol
all his struggles to this end should
show a weakening. It was incon
ceivable, indeed nevertheless it was
true. The Master Mind felt a sickness-
of heart as he searched himself anew
for some clew to an understanding of
the thing that had come to pass, for hi
knew that somehow his own soul had
betrayed him.
The thoughts of the Master Mind
turned presently, to Lucene. The sub
ject was strangely distasteful to him
now, yet he held to it, as if its fasci
nation were sujierior to a will hithertc
indomitable. He recalled his first pur
poses concerning this girl, the project
of making her available as a weapon
against his enemy. He had never fal
tered in that purpose. His first plan
had been accomplished in its entirety
nave the consummation, and that wus
now at hand and sure beyond perad
venture of doubt. But, while the
prima intention had been thus achiev
ed, there had been so much more oh.
vastly more! lie had become the cre
ator of a radiant lersonaIlty where
had been only a very pretty, illiterate
waif. He had caused the delicate fash
ioning of a woman refined and beauti
ful far beyond the ordinary. He had
found delight in his responsibility to
ward her. lie had bad pride in a re
sult that had not been save for his di
rection. The gratitude of the girl
warmed his heart. The warped ego
tism of the man did not permit him
accurately to gauge the depths of his
injustice toward her in making her life
a pawn in his game of hate. On tht
contrary, he was able by some singu
lar quirk of intelligence to take full
satisfaction for himself in all his fa
vozu to her and to disregard almost
comrletelylthe-ulptnatevruin of her life
that must be Ids liahdiwork. He fail

that he failed utterly. That is not
quite true, ne failedT indeed, but net

ward the truth flashed on him. but he
shut his mental eyes to such illumina
tion. He preferred the darkness rath
er than the light that chiefest sin
and the might of his will gave to him

But tonight the Master Mind found
it. difficult to hold his eyes shut. Since
he had ijeen the wife in her agony over
what had come to pass through his
machiuatioii3 he was unable to Iguore
as before this wretchedness of his
making for her. He could not escape
realization of what all this must mean
to her.
In his perception now he learned,
too. as never yet in tlie years of asso
ciation with her. how dear she was
become to him. He altered no whit in
his resolve of vengeance on the man

brother's death, but nt least he was
forced to admit the torment It must
inflict on her and as well the distress
to himself that her suffering must
