Letter Raises Protest,
Mr. Butler pulls a letter from his
pocket and sets back to tfie subject
of democratic harmony. This was
written by J. b. McCarty, vice
chairman of the Nebraska demo
cratic state committee and. sent out
to a large number of party members.
In the letter Mr. McCarty urges all
good democrats to get behind Bryan
and Hitchcock and promises that the
democratic daily press of. the state
will support this slate.
Copies of this mimeographed ap
peal are being forwarded to Mr. But
ler from wrathy friends in all parts
of the state. Something very like
a revolt against , the state committee
is indicated, although Mr. McCarty
purported to be writing nothing more
than a personal letter on the official
stationery of the committee. .

He was practically engaged to her.
He really wished to marry her. In
the light of this new and monstrous

he remembered only that she was a
delightful woman, and that he wished
to have her tor his wite.
His uhcle did not know what he
was talking about ; the whole idea
was nreoostcrous. He should re

no need to even think it over. As

If he met Hulbert, he quite made

exactly what he thought of the
whole business. As for that money
he owed the little cad Cold sweat
broke out on Barry's forehead; he
hated the thought of owing that man
money; quite a lot of money it was
too, which Hulbert had advanced
from time to time. He realized that
by now it must have run into sever
al hundreds of pounds.
Agnes would get to know of it,
no doubt they would talk him over
together. Barry ground Uh teeth;
if he could only pay the little blioht
er back! Uut it was hopeless to think
of it! There was only hi uncle to
whom he could turn, and lie Barry
drew a long breath, his interview
of that morning with Norman's
father came back with a flash of il
"You help me to put an end to this
infatuation of Norman s, and 1 11 pay
your debts and give you a handsome
present as well."
It was impossible, of course! But

on more soberly.

He knew that he had particular
claims to good looks; Norman was

deep down in his heart Barry knew
also that there was a great deal of

something of his lost self esteem.
After all, Agnes wasn't the only wo

Barrv hailed a taxi and told the
man to drive to the hotel where his
uncle was staying. He would just
tell the old chap that it couldn't be
done at any price, that it wasn't any
job in his line at all. The sooner
t was finally settled, the better.
He was annoyed to lmd Norman
at the hotel instead of his uncle. He
looked at him rather disagreeably.
"Thought you were going away,
he said, shortly.
"I was I came back this morning.
"Oh!" There was a little pause.
"What do you want with the

Norman laughed cynically. "I

Barry glanced up. "What's true?"
he aked, with a growl.
"That the little widow has given

didn't believe it; but I suppose it's

' Barry sent the magazine spinning
down the polished table. "And what
if it is true?" he demanded, intently.
"Foor old ofiapl" There was
something mocking in his cousin's
voice. "I never really thought you'd
pull it off," he added. "She could

boy; she knew that you found her

The words were a direct insult,

regretted them bitterly as soon as

from Norman, realizing their dit
ferent positions, and how good Nor
man' father had been to him. But
today he was at the end of his en
durance; today he felt that he could
not stand his cousin's sneer and
jibes. He made a furious lunge at
him across the table, and missed.
There was a moment's silence, then
Norman broke out:
"That's not the way to get your
drills paid, my dear chap! And I
suppose that's why you're here. If
it's money you've come for. it will pay
you to keep a civil tongue in your
head. There's a limit even to what

Barry had pulled himself to
gether. He was horribly ashamed
of his los of self-control. He had
never had aNserious row with his

for wonder now, as he looked at
Norman's snecriiiB face, and for the

that looked at him from the younger
