How He Smoothed Things Out
for Little Dan
The old man paused, out of breath,
lit the end of his laborious climb up
the bteep flight of concrete steps thnt
marked the Intersection of Ninth ave
nue. He fumbled In his pocket and
drew forth a battered llttlo red note
book, turning the worn pages with
tremulous fingers. Here It was: 173n
E. Ninth, between Onk and Klin
streets. The house on the corner bore
the number 173G In large gilt letters
and the ono next door, the big gray
Btono building overrun with thick, vel
vety Ivy thut must be the pluco he
was looking for.
His heart misgave him as he timidly
took Inventory of tho handsome edi
fice, the Imposing grounds and general
air of grandeur that undoubtedly be
spoke wealth and culture and Impor
tance. Ho almost wished he hadn't
come and was of halt a mind to turn
round and go straight back to the sta
tion. After all, it was foolish even
a ridiculous thing to do; this coming
to New York to see und talk to tho girl
Dick wanted to marry. In nil prob
ability he would only be turned from
tho door bucIi a door and what was
worse, If tho boy ever heard of it, suc
ceed in incurring his everlasting dis
pleasure. What If Dick found out that he had
purloined one of his letters and read
tho address of "Miss Barbara Shop
ard," delicately penned In tho up pur
rlght-hund corner?" Ho hadn't been
mean enough to go further he
wouldn't liuvo done a thing like thnt
but he hud gleaned enough from the
lntimute conversation ho and his
nephew had held together to form his
own conclusions. And they amounted
to just one thing: Uarbara Shepard
was rich, Dick poor; they loved each
other devotedly, but the boy's pride
stood liko a brick wall between them,
and until ho could batter down that
wall, ho would not ask her to share his
life. And, mused Uifclo Hilly, forlorn
ly, perhaps he was tho real handicap.
Alone, Dick might havo faced the
world, wrestled with it, thrown it
and conio forth victor. Hut with an
old man to block his path!
Tho swish of skirts cut In abruptly
on Uncle Ullly's reflections. Ho glanced
eafeerly Into the fresh young face of
the owner. Tho girl paused and smiled
pleasantly; she was very young and
very pretty and exceedingly winsome,
and tho old man found his toiigue
without any trouble under the melting
sunshlno of her smile.
"Excuse me, miss, but could you tell
mo It a family by the name of Shep
ard lives in that big house yonder?"
"Why yes, certainly. Were you look
ing for some one?"
Maneuvering was strange to Uncle
Billy and ho replied directly: "I want
ed to see Miss Darbara Shepard, and
talk to her. You see, it It's about a
very Important matter and I'vo come
all the way from Drooklawn about
Drooklawn! Tho girl drew a little
quick breath and answered quickly "I
know Darbara qulto well, but but
she's not at homo tills morning, though
1 expect her in within an hour."
A disappointed look swept over the
old man's face. The train back to
Drooklawn would leavo that city at
two and despite tho fact thut only a
llttlo while ago he had mado up his
mind to return without seeing the girl,
the thought that ho couldn't seo her
troubled him. Dut tho other had be
gun to speak again, and ho noticed
(that her voice was soft and clear and
very gentle.
"Won't you come with me and sit
there on one of the lawn-benches and
wait for Darbara?" she asked. "It
you're a friend of hers, I'm sure sho'd
never forgive me for letting you go
Uncle nilly gave a little appreciative
cackle. "Well," he drawled, "I don't
know as that's exactly the word to
use, since I've never Been Miss Shep
ard In my life."
"Ah!" Tho girl has commenced to
walk on toward the lawn with the old
man keeping pace beside her. They
came to a twisted-oak seat under a
great, spreading tree and sat down.
"I'm rather curious," sho admitted
laughingly, "to see, Bobby her bst
friends call her that sometimes and
I aro close chums and there Isn't much
she hasn't told mo. Perhaps If you
told mo your name?" sho paused with
a little tentative uplifting of her
"William Darker. I livo, as I said, at
Droodlawn with my nephew, Richard
Fielding. Perhaps you know Dick too?"
Tho girl nodded thoughtfully. "I
guess you mean Darbara's sweetheart,
don't you?"
"Precisely. I'm feeling a bit worried
about tho boy and that's why I'm
here. I want to talk with her; I want
to find out what's at the bottom of
Dick's well, his pale face and silent
ways. 1 was young myself once and
I can come pretty near to guessing at
tho bottom of some things."
The young girl had turned and was
gazing Intently into the rugged old
face beside her; sho saw that th
faded blue eyes were dim with hold
back tears. "Oh, but I'm Buro that
Bobby loves him," she said quickly. "I
know It. You couldn't bo mistaken?"
Uncle Billy shook his head back and
forth. "Maybe you'll think I'm a fool
ish old man to bo telling you, a perfect
stranger, all ubout my troubles on
first acquaintance, eh?"
"Not at all, Mr. Barkor. I've heard
(Of ypu so often through Dick and Bar
bara that it doeBii't seem as If we're
strangers at all. And" she hesitated,
throw him a Bwift scrutiny, then pro
ceeded, "It may be that I can help you
out a little."
Tho old man was silent, thinking In
tently. "Maybe you can;" ho exclaimed
suddenly, "and then I wouldn't havo
to bother her at all."
Tho girl bent forward abruptly and
broke a spray of clematlB from a near
by trellis. Sho burled her nose In the
blossoms for a moment, keeping her
eyes steadily down. Presently sho
said: "I don't mind telling you Mr.
Darker, that Barbara, too, has Bcemed
to mo a good deal troubled ubout some
thing of late. And why, I might Just
as well tell you tho truth nt once;
they're crazy about ouch other, her
parents admire young Fielding lm
inunscly and are perfectly willing for
her to mnrry him. Hut Dick Is ob
stinate; ho refused to allow her to do
it until, In his own words, he 'makes
good.' "
Tho anxious expression on Uncle
Ullly's face all at once gave place to
one of satisfaction. "If that Is all, then I
know it already. Hut 1 was afraid
there might bo something deeper. I
was thinking perhaps sho'd said some
thing done something maybe hurt
tho boy's feeling In tomo way. I I
even went so far as to wonder If If It,
might be me."
A tender little smile played nhout
tho girl's lips. "You should hear our
nephew talk about you, Mr. Barker
and you should know too, how Barbara
has already taken 'Undo Billy' Into
her heart."
The old man mopped his eyes. "I'm
mighty glad to hear you say so, miss.
Now I'm going to tell you something
queer. You've been so good as to take
me Into your contldenco. I'm not Dick's
real uncle at all. Once when ho was
a very llttlo boy, oh, ten or eleven, I
guess, I was knocked down In the
street by a big express wagon and In
jured about the head. Dick and his
father were close by and Mr. Fielding,
giving in to the boy's persuasions, had
me carried to his own homo InRtead
of to tho village Jail. That was tho
orjy place In Brooklawn; they didn't
havo any hospital then. After n few
weeks I got on my feet but It wub
months before I could work. Dick and
I had grown to be groat friends and
Mr. Fielding kept mo on at tho place
as his overseer. A few years later ho
died, then, his wife and there wns
Just Dick and mo left. Wo'vo been to
gether ever since. It would break my
heart to go out of that boy's life, but
If I thought I was hindering him In
tho world "
"Indeed, you mustn't sny such
things. 1 I'm convinced 11 isn't that,
bilt just a silly, false pride that's got
possession of your nephew."
"I guess it's silly nil right. But
but I Just can't help admiring Dick for
sort of feeling that way. And, If tho
truth wns known, I bet Miss Barbara
thinks a lot more of him for it!"
Tho girl flushed softly nt soma sud
den recollection, "I'm certain of it, too,
Mr. Barker; It only goes to show what
what Dick Fielding is mado of. Dut
sUo'b only human, you know, nnd sho
Isn't willing for him to go to breaking
her heart forever!"
Tho old man rose suddenly to his
feet. The girl glanced up, bewildered
nt the swift change of expression that
had come over his uWld little face with
tho faded eyes aim withered cheeks.
Tho former were suddenly nflash with
purpose and the latter streaked with
dark red. "And ho shan't either!" he
cried. "I'm going homo nnd tell him
somothlng tonight that' will mako a
whole lot of difference. I'll tell it to
you now, though you must promise to
let him be first to his sweetheart with
tho news. A week ago, a distant cou
sin of mlno died out in Colorado and
loft mo a fortune of a half a million
dollars. It's all going to Dick tho lit
tle boy with tho great big heart. I
only wanted to find out the truth about
tho gtrl, thnt's all. I wanted to know
it sho'd been fair. I I lovo him too
much to give htm up to to somebody
that'll care less can t you see?"
The trembling old voice trailed al
most to a whisper. The young girl had
risen too and was standing beside him.
She laid an affectlonato row of soft
fingertips on his rusty coat sleeve;
the eyes she lifted to his were brim
ming with the totidernesB of unshed
"You won't have to give him up,
Uncle Billy," she revealed herself in
a little Joyous undertone, "for It
wouldn't be n homo at all without
you." - '
