a flight of stairs, and entered the lit-

panion was sitting, mid Happed him
on the shoulder,
"Siitherland, my boy," he exclaimed,
Siitherland, awakened Hiiddenly from
lils day-dream. Htarted from IiIh chair.
"About Marjorle?" he cried.
"Ych," returned bin friend with a
smile, "about Marjoile. 1 have been
talking this morning with a woman
who Is oie of her intimate friends."
"Where is she?" exclaimed Suther
land. "Let me sec her."
"Now, look here, my Rood fellow,"
returned the other, "you must sit
down and cense to excite yuiiisolf.
Mm cover, you must work cautiously,
or my prize may turn out u blank.
Yes, I have dhoverod hi the model

you want to know- who Is often In

slio may be, ami who, If properly
handled, may bo made to tell you all.
Hut you must be careful, as I have
paid, for she Is a rough creatine, ami
might turn stubborn. She Is gono
now, but she will return tomorrow,
and you shall talk to her. Think it
over, and ilrc'dc for youtrelf the best
way to act."
He descended to the studio, whllu
Sutherland sank again Into his chair
to think of Mnrjorie.
He spent a singularly restless night;
the next morning lie looked pale and
harassed. I tut after breakfast when
he entered the studio he was quite
calm, lie was working with his cus
tomary ardor when the studio door
opened and Allele came in.
The moment she appeared he sprang
up nml mcosted her.
"I am glad you have come," he
said, In doubtful French. "I- I wish
to speak to you aliout a lady whom
you know well. Yes; Nairn, my
friend, has told me Hint you know
Adele fixed her wild eyes upon the
young mini, and then, with a curious
smile, pointed to a portrait.
"You mean her?" she asked.
"Yes, yes! Tell mo all you know
concerning her. I am Interested in
her deeply Interested. My friend
tells mc that you sometimes visit the
house, though how or why I cannot
guess. What takes you there?"
"1 carry a message sometimes from
tho cabaret," answered Adele.
"And you see her? you speak to
"Why not?" said the girl, somewhat
defiantly, for she read In the young
man's face no llttlo astonishment that
Marjorle should see such company.
"Yes, I see her and tho child. Sho Is
like, that picture, but changed, older.
But there, perhaps you sometimes see
her- for yourself."
"Only from a distance." answered
Sutherland. "1 havo not spoken to her,
sho does not know that I am In Paris.
Hut 1 hnvo seen enough." ho added,
sadly, "to Biispcct that she Is unhap
py and neglected. Is that so?"
Adolo looked at him for some mo
ments In silence, then she said, with
the low, harsh Inugh habitual to her:
"You know llttlo or nothing, mon
sieur. If you will swear not to be
tray me, 1 can tell you much more
of her and her husband, Dlnble, i
should love to do him an 111 turn, ami
her a good one. Will you swenr?"
"Ych," answered Sutherland, start
led by tho girl's strange manner. "For
OoA's suko, tell mo all you know."
Upon being further questioned, It
seemed that Adelo know really very
lltUe concerning Marjorle herself. Sho
ould only tell Sutherland what he
had already, by quiet observation, dis
covered for himself, that Marjorle
seemed unhappy; that there was no
sympathy between herself and her
husband; that, Indeed, sho seemed to
About Cnussldlere himself, Adele
was much more explicit Indeed, she
seemed to bo pretty well acquainted
with his secret life, and spoke of It
without reserve. Suddenly sho naked:
"Do you know Mademoiselle Sera
phlne, of tho Chartelet?"
"Well, CniiBsldlere docs."
"What of tha$?"
"Well," repeated Adele, "how dull
jrou are, monsieur, You ask me J
Just now why Caussldlerc neglects his
Vvlfe, ami I tell you."
"He haii an Intrigue with mi nc
tiess?" "Not exactly. He simply prefers her
eoiiipany. When .Madame Mere sends

She turned iik If aliout to leave him,
but .Sutherland railed her back.
"Mademoiselle Adele, 1 -I am not a
rich mail, but Mudmno Cnussldlere has
frlenilH who will not nee her want. You
have access to her, I have not; you '

Allele laughed aloud.
"That In ho like a man," she wild.

"Women can often say a word of

that you ever met hip, but If you can
make her happier by a word some
times" He paused in some confusion, nnd
held forth a napoleon. Adele laughed
again, and roughly tossed hs hand

During the fow days which followed
Sutherland was like a man entranced
- utterly bewildered an to what ho
Once or twice ho saw Mnrjorie walk
ing with her little boy In the streets
of Paris, nnd ho fancied that her face
looked more careworn than ever. Ho
dared not speak to her. It would bo
hotter, ho thought, to make his pres
ence known to Caiissldlcre, and to give
that gentleman plainly to understand
that unless Mnrjorle's llfo were made
more bearable to her, the checks from
Miss Ilethcrlngton would Inevitably
cense. Thnt would bo the only way to
touch Caussldlero's heart It was the
surest way to proceed, and Sutherland
determined to act upon It.
Ono mornliiK soiiio two days after
Ills Interview with Adele ho left his
looms with tho determination to find
Cnussldlere. So engrossed wns he with
this new Idea that for tho time being
ho forgot all else. Ho walked through
the streets, along tho boulevards. Ho
was wondering how and where ho
should carry out his design, when he
was suddenly startled by the sound of
his own name.
He started, turned quickly, and
found himself face to face with Mar
jorle. For a moment ho could say nothing.
A mist was before his eyes, anil Ills
ilslng tears choked him; but he held
forth his hands to grasp her trembling
"Johnnie," she said, "It Is really
you! Oh, I am so glad, so glad!"
He brushed rtway the mist which was
blinding his eyes nnd looked at her
again. Her checks wero suffused, her
eyes sparkled, and a sad smile played
about the corners of her mouth. She
looked at that moment something like
tho Marjorle whom ho had known
The change lasted only for a mo
ment, then her face became paler and
sadder than It had been before, and
her voice trembled as she said:
".Johnnie, you must tell me now how
they nil nro at Dumfries."
Sho snt down on ono of the benches
which wero plnced by the roadside, nnd
Sutherland took his seat beside her.
"I was sitting here," Bhe said, "when
I saw you pass. At first I could not
bellevo It was you, It seemed so strange
thnt you should bo in Paris, that I
should meet n friend from Scotland."
Tho tears enmo Into her eyes again,
and her volco trembled. Turning
her face nwny, she beheld n pnlr of
eyes gazing wonderlngly up nt her.
"Leon, mon petit," she said, placing
her hnml upon her child's golden curls;
then turning to Sutherland she said:
"This Is my llttlo boy."
As llttlo Leon was not conversant
with English, Sutherland nddrcssed
him In the best French nt IiIb com
mand. Ho took tho child on his knee,
nnd the three sat together to talk over
"It seems so strnngc, I can hardly
bellevo It is real," said Mnjorlc. "Tell
me how long havo you been In Paris,
and how long will you Btay?"
"How long I shall stay I don't
know," Bald Sutherland. "I have been
here several months."
"Several months?" repeated Marjo
rle, "nnd 1 see you today for the flrat

Perhaps she understood his meaning,
for she turned the conversation to oth
er things. Ho told her of tho changes
which had tnken plnco in Annandalo;
thnt the old servnnt Myslo lay with tho
minister sleeping in tho klrkyardj that
a largo family tilled tho manso; and
that Miss Hetherlngton wus the only
being who, nmldat all this changing,

Holding little Leon by the hand, they
strolled quietly along under the trees.
Presently they camo to ono of lh
many merry-go-rounds which are to
be found In the Champa Klyseei. Mer
ry children were riding on the woodon
horses, anil mothers nnd nursery-muMs
were looking on.
Here little Ix-on clnmored for a ride,
nnd Sutherland placed him on one of
tho horses. As he rode round and
round, uttering cries of Infantine de
light, Marjorle looked on with height
ened color, hero eyes full of mother's
tender rapture; and, gazing upon her,
Sutherland thought to himself:
"Poor Mnrjorie! Sho loves her hus
band for her child's sake. I have no
right to come between them."
When tho ride was done nnd the
threo passed on together, Marjorle
seemed to havo forgotten nl her trou
ble and to look her old smiling self, but
Sutherland's heart sank In deep dejec
tion. Close to the Madeleine they parted,
wllh a warm handshake and a prom
ise to mret again.
From that day forth Marjorle and
.Sutherland met frequently, and walked
together In the Hols de Uoulogne or on
tho boulevards, with llttlo Leon for a
companion. At her express entreaty
ho refrained from speaking to Caiissl
dlcre, though ho saw that, despite her
attempts at cheerfulness, her face
sometimes wore nn expression of In
creasing pain. Ho began to suspect
that there was something very wrong
Indeed; nnd he determined to discover,
if possible, the exnet relntlons exist
ing between Mnrjorie nnd her husband.
Meantime, the meetings with his old
sweeheart were full of an nbundnnt
happiness, tempered with sympathetic

Marjorle bore her lot with exemplary
docility nnd characteristic gentleness;
but ono day her patience gave way.
She received a communication an
anonymous letter which ran ns fol

not with you ho Is with Mademolsello
Seraphlnc of tho Chatelct."
Mnrjorie rend the letter through

"DIable, what are you doing hern'.'"
"Where have you been so late,
Leon?" she quietly replied.
He stared at her with an ominous
frown ns he said:
"Whnt is thnt to you? Go to bed."
Seeing well that he was In no mood
"to be questioned, she obeyed him; but

State Treasurer Hartley's bank at At
kinson, recently visited the state house
to try to induce Attorney-Ocncral'
Smyth to withdraw a claim which the
state has presented to the receiver of
that bank. Hartley had 855,000 on de
posit in the bnnk in his own name af
ter it became known that ho was in
default to thn state as treasurer an.l
the banking board el sed his bank.
The attorney-general filed a claim for
the full amount of the money deposit
ed In Hartley's name. A claim was
Hied with the district court, but its
validity has not been determined,
After tho bank was closed depositors
alleged that it wns not insolvent but
wns closed by the banking bonrd sole
ly for the purpose of getting hold ol
Hartley's money. Depositors say there
is enough money in the bank to pay
them in full if tho state will not force
Its claim. They think tho stato ought
not to bo mnde a preferred creditor, nt
any rate, nnd thus shut them out of a
chance to got anything. They sent an
attorney to consult with state author
ities, but Attorney-Cieiicral Smyth has
refused to withdraw tho state's claim.
