said Gripp, when they were alone.
Plainly, his face indicated disappoint

lot of drawings for another how could he
axplain that? He would only matte mat

peace, trusting to time and a favorable
reception of his very liberal proportion
to Mr, Mead to pave the way fur au ex
planation of the change made in the
drawings, when they could laugh over it.
He bowed himself out, and hastened
away so quickly he did not notice the fig
ure at the window. When he disu pair

'Mr. Mead is disengaged now, miss.
The lady entered Mr. Mead's private

"Be seated. Yes, and I am sorry I

"You will excuse my want of ceremony,
but it is a matter that cannot wait."

Mr. Mead was secretly aniased, but he
only bowed, and she continued:
'I have called to see you concerning
a matter Mr. Arthur May berry is, or

Mr. Mead bowed again, rim manner

washing the dishes.
"'I say, Irene! Are you sure you gave
Mr. Gripp the right roll? These papers
are all mixed tip together. I can't tell
"I don't know. 1 won't be sure. Y'ou

He opened the first large roll near him.
An exclamation brought Irene to the
door. Her father looked at her with a

Irene, coming forward. "1 was so anx

"The next thing I want to know, what
did you give him''"
Irene stood on a chair, looked at the
remaining rolls, then descended, put a
finger on her lips, and baid:
"Papa, I gave Mr. Gripp my drawings
I'an Atherton made a wry face.
The mistake in the drawings evident
ly made him very uneasy. Suddenly his
eye fell on the note addressed to him.
He strode to the mantel, saying:
"When did this come?"
"I thought you saw it when you came
in: it came half an hour before Mr. Gripp
called the second time."
Atherton opened the note qnlcldy, cost.
his eye over it, then in an altered, tone
asked: "Who left this here?"
Irene, quick to note the change in his
voice and manner, replied: "A boy."
"A boy. lo you know him? Would
yon know him if you saw him again?
What was he like?"
"Yes. I think I am sure I could tell
him. 1 never saw him before. Why, he
was about twelve or fourteen."
"Irene!" His manner alarmed ber; his
eyes shone with a fierceness that alarmed
her. "You must keep on the lookout for
him tne boy, 1 mean and if you see him
as you value your life, do not let him pet
out of your sight mili! you learo who he
is, where be lives all that Is nece.-Oi.iry

"Yes, I understand, father."
Then Attierton hastily crumpled the
note up, thrust it into his pocket, grasped
bin hat, and without saying a word more
left, the house.
When Atherton was a little distinct
from home he paused, stood motionless,
and reflected. Opening the note be ba
thrust into his pocket, he reperused it
slowly. It was very mysterious. It rea
"There is no telling what a monien
may bring Forth Bent cut your stick, and
less Chance of Trubble. I'd tell you this
only for strange eyes watching to get a
grip on some one.
"A FKIEND-IN NEED.'
Atherton read this over twice carefully
and walked on. Erst holding the mysteri
ous note np carefully and placing it in
bin pocket. There wag no date. The
signature was not reassuring.
It could only mean one thing. It re
ferred to the death of Hob Peters. And
yet 110 name was mentioned. It was
vague, but all the more calculated to
alarm a man of weak mind; a timid man
would be driven into a panic by it, un
less he felt that he could easily meet and
djspose of any charge brought against,
"It means more than Gripp knows of
all that passed and maybe some one
who does' not know, but suspects what la
Atherton walked slowly along, ponder
ing the meaning of the warning note.
"And why may it not be somebody try
ing to frighten me? Somebody who
wants to get me out of the way?"
This view was as reasonable as any
other. His strong common sense told
him he ought not to be guided in any Im
portant matter by any anonymous note.
In short, he took the correct view; he
said to himself he would stay where he
was. He was as innocent, as sinless, as
any man who could confront him, and he
would not be driven away from the flty.
And yet there was enough to make him
feci uncomfortable, nervous, apprehen
sive. A man who would stop to write
him such a not was cowardly enough
to da anything. So be bad two enemies
where be thought he hard but one. That
one was Gripp. Gripp, whom he was
clinging to; Gripp, whom be felt like
choking; Gripp, who hoped to be related
to him in a closer manner than commer
cial cords could bring about.
Atherton asked himself then and there:
Will I fight for freedom for myself, for
my daughter? I-ong he debated with
himself. When be had turned to move
on, he made this resolve:
I will fight I will be as wise as the
serpent and as gentle as tne dove until
or time comes. Then, Mr. Gripp, look
out for yourself look out, Mr. Gripp!"
He thrust a band out in imagination ns

"Hello, there! What do you mean, bit
ting a fellow that way ? Wby, bless me
if 'taln't Dan Atherton."
"You're just the man I want to talk
to. Come with me, Jack Jones, I have
something very serious to say to you."
"Dan, you know I'd go through fire and
water for you."
"I believe it. Come."
