' How much I.. & o. have you?" lie
"Thirty-five thousand shnroa," re
plled Mr. Maron.
"How many have you Hold?" ad
dressing his son.
About seventy-five thousand."
Hu-m-m-m. Fine outlook! Forty
thousand shares short on a stock, with
only a hundred thousand shares In
all. ' growled Randolph Morris. "By
God, If r null out of this thing with a
dollar I'll place It where you can't
Mud It with a set of burglar's tools!"
Rnmlolph Morris glared at his son,
fumMoii for his glasses and hent over
"Fifty-five hid for L. & O.," It rend.
"Hid sixty for any part of ton thou

(Jo to the exchange, Mason, and net
on the other end of this wire, and I'll
give you the orders."
Shortly before noon a news agency
made public a statement which
hastened the crisis. It read:
'The deal In L. & O. was engineered
by Mr. James Wake, the dashing
young operator whoso advent In New
York wan signalized by the recent up
heaval In prices. For several weeks
Mr. Hlake has quietly been absorb
ing blocks of L. & O. Today he se
rin eU ten thousand shares from Gen
et al Marshall Garden, which, with the
holdings of Mr. John Hawkins, gives
tins syndicate of which Mr. Blako Is
the head absolute control of this valu
able property. Another rnllrond com
pany has been a bidder for control,
but the Carden stock gives Mr. Dlake
the coveted advantage.
"It Is rumored that a well-known
and powerful banking house Is short
this stock to the amount of nearly
loity thousand shares. It opened nt
J!) Va and rapidly advanced to 75, and
then by leaps and hounds reached 12ii.
It Is believed that only n fow scat

and that the stock Is cornered.

Company has suspended."
Father and Son.
0q by one the directors of the
liank had entered tho room where
Randolph Morris, was making his
llcnt against overwhelming odds.
Homo ho recognized by an almost Im
perceptible bow, but no words came
lrom bis lips as he bent over tho tape.
The faces of tho directors were palo
and drawn from tension.
When L. & O. had mounted to
eighty dollars a share, Randolph Mor
i Ik changed his tactics and attempted
to check the rise by throwing all his
holdings on the market. In less than
n hour ho hurled thirty-five thousand
Oinros Into the speculative whirl
pool. II was like stemming Niagara with
a straw. The price did not sag. Tho
powerful Interests back of L. & O.
pledged three millions of dollars for
this stock and clamored for more.
In resjionso to a demand for mnr
gin, Randolph Morris deposited sev
eral inllllotiB cash and valid securi
ties. Alarmed by rumors, patrons of
tho bank formed In long lines and de
manded their deposits.. Thero was no
dram of hope, but grim In dofeat the
old banker stood by the wheel and
watched tho ship of his fortunes ns
she swiftly ncared tho reefs of ruin.
A clerk entered and handed to Ran
dolph Morris the yellow slip of paper
containing the bulletin. Ho rend It
slowly, crumpled It In his hands and
threw It on the floor.
Grasping his massive gold-headed
cane, ho brought it down on tho glnss
dome which covered tho delicate
mechanism of tho ticker. One of tho
lljlng fragments cut his cheek and n
lew drops of blood slowly trickled
down his face.
"The corporation of Randolph Mor
ris & Company Is bankrupt!" ho said,
rising to his feet and looking into tho
faces of his astounded associates.
"The Beard of Directors will conveno
at onoe and tnko formal action to that
Bffect. Ho seated, gentlemen, and
:omo to order. You may make tho
motion for suspension, Mr. Mason."
When Randolph Morris adjourned
tho directors' meeting ho looked about
for his son, but ho was not In tho
ro.4fy Ho found Arthur MorrlB with
in tho caged enclosute occupied by
the paying teller. In his hands wero
sovcral packages of money.

"You are a thief n9 well ns n fool,"
roared Randolph Morris, his hand on

with passion. "No officer of a bank

He grabbed Arthur Morris by the
shoulder and dragged him through tho
"My curse goes with that money!"
he shouted, his face convulsed with
rage. "You have dragged mo down
to shame and poverty In my old ago.
I hope, by God, that everything you
buy with that money will give you
pain! I wish to God "
His voice was choked, the blood
surged to his temples, his hands
clutched at his throat, and with a
gasp for breath ho fell heavily to the
Hcforc Arthur Morris realized what
had happenod, others were by his
father's side. Tho stricken old finan
cier pnrtlally recovered consciousness
before a physician arrived, but again
sank into n most alarming condition.
"Apoplexy," said tho physlclnn, In
answer to n question. '"Is this his
first attack?" ho asked Arthur Mor
ris "I don't know," was the reply. "I've
seen the governor so mad bo couldn't
speak, several times, but never so bad
As ho spoke Randolph Morris
opened his eyes and they rested on
"Take him away," ho said, averting
his eyes. "Take him away, and glvo
nie a chnnco to live."
"You're all right, governor," said
Arthur Morris, as the doctor gavo him
a slgnnl to stay out of sight. "Keep
cool and you'll comu out on top. I
feel as bad as you do about It, but
there's no use In kicking. Draco up
ltflbt it bm on be sLr,s dome
and tako your medicine llko a man;
we may win out yet."
To which encouraging advice Ran
dolph Morris made no reply, and tho
son left the room.
As Randolph Morris was tenderly
carried down tho steps, through nn
angry crowd, and placed In nn ambu
lance, ho onened his eyes and looked
longingly nt tho building which bore
his name. Thus ho made his last
Journey away from tho roar and tur
moil of Wall street; a mental, physi
cal and flnnnelal wreck, cast on tho
shores of oblivion by a storm terrific
Arthur Morris, stripped of all power
b. tho action of the directors, stood
nmld tho wreck of his fortunes.
He wns a witness to tho corapro
miBo by which a represontntlvo of
Jamea Blako & Company agreed to
terms, which, while protecting tho de
positors, called for tho sacrifice of tho
millions which onco stood In his name.
Tho fifty thousand dollars he had suc
ceeded at tho last moment In draw
ing from the bank was all that was
left to hlra.
Through tho long hours of that
ovontful dny Oenoral Cnrden's eyes
wero flx'ed on tho stock board. Few
of tho e: cited customers of James
Blake & Company recognized tho ex
banker, nnd nono knew tho reason for
his absorbing interest In tho fluctua
tions of ihe stock labeled L. & O.
Who vas this man Blake, and why
had he cfTored to place a fortune In
his hand? Why hnd this stranger
come from out tho West, and by tho
mimic of his touch, transformed a
wf rthlcss Btock into one of so great
value that millionaires struggled mad
ly for its possession?.
When ho took his last look at tho
rtoc.k board L. & O. was quoted at
11)5. He nervously drew a slip of
; aper from his pocket and mado a
rapid calculation. If Dlake choso to
realize at tho quotation, General Car
den's sharo of tho profits would bo
nearly eight hundred thousand dollars.
The figures puzzled him, nnd ho made
the calculation anew, only to find It
accurate This represented moro than
the fortune he had lost.
A wild impulse camo which urged
him to demand of Blako the snlo of
his stock. What right had ho to Im
peril that which would Insure tho hap
piness of his daughter and tho repose
of his old uge? Hurriedly ho retrncod
his steps until he reached Broadway,
jfciul ngatu ho entered Blake's olllcu
An hour had passed, nnd ho hardly
dared look nt tho quotations. Per

"U & O. 14ii, 145, 14G," called
out tho man who was rending tho
ticker. "Two thousand L. & 0. at
An exultant shout went up from the
crowd of men who surrounded James
Dlake. His handsomo face was aglow
with pleasure as they slapped hlui on
"My congratulations, general,"
Blako said, grouping tho old soldier's
hand. "Our llttlo pool is working
splendidly! l)o you teel llko getting
out nt 150, general? I wouldn't nd-
viso you to do so, but If you v.ltih it
can bo arranged. I have a customer
who will tnko tho stock off your bauds
at that figure." i
"I I am entirely satisfied to let It
alone," said General Carden, drawing
himself up proudly. "Handle my
stock nccorillng to your Judgment.
The subordinate should not question
tho policy of n victorious command
er." "Mr. Burton wishes to nco you,"
whispered a clerk to Blake, and the
famous bond of tho firm turned and
left General Cnrden.
Ho heard tho shouts of victory nnd
found himself slinking hands nnd
laughing with strangers. He felt n
strong grasp on his shoulder nnd
turned to seo Jnmes Blake.
"Wo settle with Randolph Morris
&. Company nt 17G," ho whispered.
"Your share of the profits Is nearly n
million nnd a half. I'll call at your
house this evening nnd glvo you a
check for tho exact amount."
"I can find no words to express my
feelings," said General Cardon, deep
ly affected. "I do not think thnt I nm
entitled to so largo a sharo of these
profits. I I really I do not know
what to say to you, Mr. Blake. God
bless and reward you."
"Don't thank me," replied Jnmee
A strange expression enmo over his
fnco and a look of pain to his dark
eyes. "I am not I should not "
Ho paused, released General Cardcn'B
hand nnd turning abruptly, rushed
across the room and vanished into an
In the turmoil of his own feelings
General Carden paid llttlo attention
to this strange action. Six hours bo
fore ho hnd entered theso rooms all
but penniless. Ho left thoui moro
than a millionaire.
In a darkened room In a remote
quarter of tho city, a gray-haired man
gnsped for breath nnd moaned In his
delirium. A great flnnnelal battle had
been fought. Randolph Morris was
one of tho stricken victims, and Mar
shall Carden was ono of tho victors.
In this ago of commercial and Indus
trial barbarism, man must climb to
glory over tho dead and mangled bod
ies of tho losers. Commercial compe
tition has all tho horrors and nono of
the chivalry of physical warfare.
Thoughts such as these came to
John Burt when tho news circulated
that Randolph Morris had been strick
en In his ofllcc. Tho blow aimed at
tho son had fallen with crushing forco
on tho father. In tho hour of victory
John Burt was silent and sad, and
John Hawkins wns not slow to glean
"I wouldn't worry over Randolph
Morris," ho said, with a gruflness
which was assumed. "Tho old man
will recover. Ono stroke of apoplexy
won't kill him."
"Wrlto to Randolph Morris," said
John, addressing Blako, "and Bay that
his personal property Is exempt In thlB
settlement. Ho has scheduled It as
having a value of nearly a million dol

He's an old mnn, with daughters and

"Good for you, nurt!" exclaimed
John Hawkins. "It Isn't business, but

Causes of Nervous Prostration.
"Believe mo," snld a Spruco Btrcet
physician who makes a specialty of
treating nervous disorders, "It Isnt
overwork that superinduces nervous
prostration. Tho men who succumb
to nervous strain are not tho men who
work continually under high pressure.
Tho man who lias no relaxation has
no tlmo to brood over IiIb health, nnd
brooding Is fatnl to a man whoso
nerves are highly strung. If n man Is
constantly busy In mind from morning
until night he Isn't In any danger of
nervous trouble. It's only, when ho re
laxes and gives himself a certain
amount of leisuro that ho Is danger.
A man Is a good bit llko a plcco of
