A COMBINATION AFFAIR
By JOHN EDGERTON.
At 12 o'clock John Jennings laid
down his pen, got down from his IiIrIi
stool, and went quietly toward tho of
llco of Mr. Campion, tho now mannger
Ho knocked timidly at tho door.
"Como In!" nlioiited Campion. "Oh
it's you, Jointing?"
"Yes, sir," Hlaiiiinerod Jennings,
looking at Campion with courage born
of desperation. ".Mr. Campion, I want
to ink If tho firm couldn't let mo have
a little more than n luiiidunl after this
month. l'o been hero 'JO jcarn, sir,

"You sop, sir," cald Jennings, "my
Mlfo has boon otdcred away for two ut
threo rnontliH and and It'a pretty
hard to keep thlngn going on $25 u
"Sit down, Jennlngn," said Campion
Ho found what ho meant to say unac
countably difficult, and for that reason
ho began to blunter. "Jennings, I liuvt.
boon thinking about you for some
time," ho said. "Wo can't ralo you
In fact, It waB my Intention to ask you
to resign nt tho end of the mouth."
Jennings, Htrtick dumb by thu blow,
only looked upioalliigly at Campion.
"You'll hnvo to go nt the end of the
month," snld Cninpton. "We'll give
you n month'H salary ahead. And no
doubt you'll fojl into another position
very soon ono nioro suited to you
That'll bo nil, Jennings."
Utterly crushed, Jennings crept
back to his stool. His mind whirled,
clmoa Bccmed to havo opened beneath
his feet. To loso his position, after 20
years' service, at forty-three 1 What
could ho do? It was tho most torrlblo
thing that had ever happened to him.
Ho said nothing to his wlfo. Mary
and ho npver iIIbcubboiI office affairs.
Tho days flew by. Jennings had
barely a week at tho offlco whero ho
had spent tho better part of his work
ing years. And as ho sat on his stool
thoughts camo Into his mind that ho
had never known before.
The safe In Campion's offlco was en
old ono. On Saturday nights It con
tained never Icsa than five or six thou
sand dollars, which camo In during
the afternoon, after banking hours.
It would be tho simplest matter to
slip tho key of Campion's offlco from
its hook in the night watchman's llttlo
ofllce,open the safe with the old com
bination, and retlro with his booty.
The idea became an obsession and ho
resolved to put It into execution on
the last Saturday of the month.
Everything favored bis plan. Cam
pion had gone away Into the country.
At six o'clock Jennings went out
among the other bookkeepers and
clerks, but, as soon as the last had do
parted, ho turned and mado his way
back, secreting himself in a corner of
tho stenographers' room, whero half
blind old Sykes would never sco him.
Midnight arrived before ho crept out
toward tho watchman's office. Tho
key to Campion's room hung by tho
door. Old Sykes would sit, dreaming
of tho paBt, behind a half-partition of
wood, for lrburs at a tlmo. In his
stockinged rfcet Jennings crept up, ab
stracted tho key and lied.
Ho put on his boots again and crept
cautiously toward Campion's office. Ho
thought ho lmard a slight nolso with
in, and hesitated, but it was not re
peated, and, cautiously turning the
key in tho door, Jennings entered
A man In a black mask was Kneeling
In front of tho safe, counting a pile of
At the sight Jennings' schema of
thctt was all forgotten. Ho remem
berod only his long servfeo with the
Arm, his watch-dog trust and obedi
ence. And this burglar was about to
Wirk a 'shout Jennings leaped at
the fellow, who, taken off his guard,
etacgorai .back under, tho other man's
impetus, rm, seeing that Jsmdags
Was nnarinai, he serartg at bfcm to

open the window that gave on tie ta
terloyjard. Jedbtoss evaded the blow and
eaught the ferrow.'a acm; They wrestled
to aad tup, Jennings calling for. help
loudly. His strength walToutclassed
by that of tho other, for 28 years of
offlco work does not mako for mus
cularity. Ho knew that once ho lost
hie hold on the burglar's arm tho
jimmy would descend.
Tho burglar fought In silence, but In
desperation, too. Jennings heard tho
quick tram) of old Sykes' feet outside.
Ho put forth all his strength to throw
tho other to tho floor, nut ho lost his
grasp and the Jimmy, raised, descend
ed with fearful forco upon his skull.
The last thing Jennings remembered
was seeing Sykee-at tho door, a pistol
In his hand. Tho lust thing ho heard
waa the dischnrgo or tho weapon.
When ho opened his eyes, to find
hlriiBelf In his bpd at homo, and his
wlfo besido him, Jennings' first
thought waa of tho affray.
"They got him?" ho demanded
A tall man roso from tho other side
of tho bed. Jennings, to his amaze
ment, discovered that It was Rothway,
"Yes, wo got tho scoundrel, thanks
to you, Jennings," he said. "Wo'ro
going to put you In his place."
"In prison?" gasped Jennings with
"No, no, my boy," said Rothway,
beaming. "In his offlco, of courso.
