CHAPTER III.Continued. .
"You understand , of course , that
this discussion is painful to me , ex
tremely painful. And yet , so much has
been published -about my sister's do
mestic affairs "
"Exactly , Mr. Ardmore. What we
want is to print your side of the
story. "
"Well , the fact is but please never
mention it the fact is that his grace
owes me four dollars. I gave it to
him in two bills I remember the in
cident perfectly two crisp new bills
I had just got at the bank. His grace
borrowed the money to pay a .cabman
it was the very day before he mar
ried my sister. "
The reporter stared a moment , then
laughed. He abandoned the idea of
getting material for a sensational ar
ticle and scented the possibilities of
a character sketch of the whimsical
young millionaire.
'It you don't mind saying where you
are going , Mr' Ardmore ? "
1 "I'd tell you in a minute , only 1
haven't fully decided yet ; but I shall
probably take the - Sambo Flyer at
9:13 , if you don't make me lose it. "
Ardmore , ' looked the reporter over
carefully as they shook , hands. He
was an. attractive young fellow ; alert
and good Rumored' , and Ardmore liked
him , as , in his shy way , he really liked
almost every o'ne who 'seemed jto be
" " * * ' " '
a human "being" " * - [ f
'Til tell , you what 111 do , with you.
Jf you'll forget kthjs rot'-we've. been
talking'and come up to Ardsley as
soon as I get home , I'll see if I can't
keep you amused for a couple of
weeks. What did you say your name
is ? Collins , Frank Collins ? " I never
forget anything , so don't disappoint
me. "
The young man laughed outright.
"I'll remember ; I really believe you
mean for me to come. "
"Of course I do. It's all settled ;
make it next week. Good-by ! " .
Ardmore ate his dinner oblivious of
the fact that people at the neighborIng -
Ing table turned to look at him. He
finally waved away his plate and
called for coffee , and at that moment
R middle-aged man appeared at the
door , scanned the room for a moment
and then threaded his way among the
tables to Ardmore.
"I heard you were here and thought
I'd look you up. How are you , Ardy ? "
"Very well , thank you , Mr. Billings.
Have you dined ? Sorry ; which way
are you heading ? "
The new-comer had the bearing of
a gentleman used to consideration.
He was , indeed , the' secretary of the
Bronx Loan and Trust Company ,
whose business was chiefly the admin
istration of the Ardmore estate , and
Ardmore knew him very well.
"I'm looking for a man , and I'm not
good at the business. I've lost him
and I don't understand it , I don't un
derstand it , " and" the secretary seemed
to be half-musing to'himself as he sat
down and rested his arms on the
table. ,
' 'You might give me , the job. I'm
following a slight clew myself just at
present. "
The secretary , who had no great
opinion of Ardmore's mental capacity ,
stared at the young man vacantly.
Then it occurred to him that possibly
Ardmore might be of service.
"Have you been at Ardsley recent
ly ? " he asked.
"Left there only a Tew days ago. "
1 "You haven't seen your governor
latefo' . have you ? "
"My governor ? " Ardmore stared
blankly. "Why , Mr. Billings , don't you
remember that father's dead ? "
"I don't mean your father , Ardy , "
replied Billings with the exaggerated
care of one who deals with extreme
stupidity. "I mean the governor of
North Carolina one of the American
states. Ardsley is still in North Carolina
lina , isn't it ? "
"Oh.yes ; of course. But bless your
soul. I don't know the governor. Why
should one ? "
" 1 don't know why , Ardy ; but people
ple sometimes do know governors and
nnG it useful. "
, "I'm not in politics any more , Mr.
Billings. What's Jthis , person's name ? "
"Dangerfield. Dent you ever-read

retary , striving o control "his inner

didn't break the bank at Monte Carlo
that last time. "
"You * mustn't be so thin-skinned.
You pay the penalty of belonging to
one of the wealthiest families in
America , " and Billings' tone was pa
. "So I've heard , but I'm not so ter
ribly proud of it. What about this
governor ? "
"That's what troubles me what of
the governor ? " Billings dropped his
voice so that no one but Ardmore
could hear. ' 'He's missing disap
peared. "
"That's the first interesting thing
I ever heard of a governor doing , "
said Ardmore. "Tell me more. "
"He's had a row with the governor
of South Carolina at New Orleans ,
was to have met him here on an im
portant matter of business this after
noon , but he's cleared out and nobody
knows what's become of him. His
daughter , even , who was in New Or
leans with him , doesn't know where
he is. "
"Ah ! the daughter ! She remains
behind to guard his retreat. "
"The daughter is still here. She's
a peppery little piece , " and Billings
looked guardedly around the room.
"That's she , alone over there in the
corner the girl with the white feath
er in her hat who's just signing her
check. There she's getting up ! "
. Ardmore- gazed across' the room in
tently , ttien suddenly a slight smile
played about his lips. To gain the
door the girl must pass by his table ,
and he scrutinized her closely as she
drew near and passed. She was a lit
tle girl , and her light fluffy hair swept
out from under a small blue hat in a
shell-like curve , and the short skirt
of her tailor-made gown robbed her ,
it seemed , of years to which the cal
endar might entitle her. . .
"She gave me the steadiest eye I
ever looked into when I asked her
where her father had gone , " remarked
Billings grimly as the girl passed.
"She said she thought he'd gone fish
ing for whales. "
"So she's Miss Dangerfield , is she ? "
asked Ardmore indifferently ; and he
rose , leaving on the plate , by a sud
den impulse of good feeling toward
the world , exactly double the gener
ous tip he had intended giving. Bill
ings was glad to be rid of Ardmore
and they parted in the hotel lobby
without waste of words.
Ardmore's effects had been brought
down and were already piled on a
carriage at the door. In his pocket
was his passage to New Orleans and
a stateroom ticket. At the cashier's
desk Miss Dangerfield paid her bill ,
just ahead of him.
"If any telegrams come for my fa
ther please forward them to Raleigh , "
said the girl. The manager came out
personally 'to show. her to her car
riage , and having shut the door upon
Jher/ lie wished Ardmore , who stood
discreetly "by , a safe journey.
* "Off for INew Orleans ; -are you , Mr.
Ardmore ? " asked the manager courte
* "No , " said Ardmore , "I'm going to
Raleigh to'look at the tall buildings , "
whereat the manager returned to his
duties , gravely shaking his head.
At the station Ardmore caught sight
of Miss Dangerfield , attended by
two porters , hurrying toward the Tar
Heel express. He bought a ticket
to Raleigh , and secured the last avail
able berth from the conductor on the
platform at the moment of departure.
Ardmore did not like to be hurried ,
and thus sudden change of plans had
been almost too much for him , but
he was consoled by the reflection that
after all these years of waiting for
just such an adventure he had proved
himself equal to an emergency that
required quick thought and swift ac
tion. He had not "only found the girl
with the playful eye , but he had
learned her identity without , as it
were , turning over his hand.
The stateroom door stood open , and
from his seat at the farther end of
the car Ardmore caught a fleeting
glimpse of Miss Dangerfield as she
threw off her jacket and hat ; then
she summoned the porter , give him
her' tickets , bade him a smiling goc\l
night and the door closed upon her.
Ardmore went back to smoke and
plan his future movements. For the
first time in his life he faced tomorrow
row with eager anticipations , resolved
that nothing should thwart his high
Tesolves , though these , to be sure ?
were somewhat hazy. He did not
know why Billings was so anxious to
find Miss Dangerfield'sjather , but as
between a man of-.piHingjJl purely com

more resolved to stand by the Danger-
fields to the end of the chapter. He
was proud to remember his estate at
Ardsley , which was in feov. Danger-
field's jurisdiction , and had been vis
ited by the game warden , the state
forester , and various other members
of the governor's official household ,
though Ardmore could not remember
their names. He had never in his life
visited Raleigh , but far down some
dim vista of memory he saw Sir Wal
ter covering a mud-puddle with his
cloak for Queen Elizabeth.
Ardmore smoked many pipes and
did not turn In until after midnight.
The car was hot and stuffy and he
slept badly. At some hour of the
morning , being again awake and rest
less , he fished his dressing-gown and
slippers out of his bajr and went out
on the rear platform. His was the
last car , and he found a camp-stool
and crouched down upon it in a cor
ner of the vestibule and stared out
into the dark. The hum and click of
the rails soothed him andhe yielded
himself- pleasant reveries-
Ardmore was half-dozing when the
train stopped so abruptly that he was
pitched from the camp-stool ; into a
corner of the entry. He got himself

"Kildare , sah. This place is wha'
we go from South C'lina into N'otb

"Perfectly ; thank you. "
Kildare was a familiar name , and
the station , that lay at the outskirts
of the town , and a long grim barracks-
like building that he identified as a
cotton mill , recalled the fact that he
was not far from his own ample acres
which lay off somewhere to westward
He had occasionally taken this route
from the north in going to Ardsley

ten miles to his house. In this waj
he was enabled to go or come without
appearing at all in the little village ol
The porter left him. He felt reads
for sleep now , and resolved to g (
back to bed as soon as the trair
started. Just then a dark shadow ap
peared in the track and a man's voice
asked cautiously :
"Air y'u the conductor ? "
The questioner saw that he was not ,
before Ardmore could reply , and hesi
tated a moment.
"The porter's in the car ; you can
get aboard up forward , " Ardmore sug

track below.

"Weli ; hyefi's somethin' fer'im it's

The man a tall bearded countryman
in a slouch hat , handed up to Ardmore
a jug a plain , brown , old-fashioned
American gallon jug.
"It's a present fer Gov'nor Danger-
field. He'll understand , " and the man
vanished as mysteriously as he had
appeared , leaving Ardmore holding
the jug by its handle , and feeling a lit
tle dazed by the transaction.
The train lingered , and Ardmore
was speculating as to which one of
the Carolina commonwealths was be
neath him , when another figure ap
peared below in the track that of a
bareheaded , tousled boy this time. He
stared up at Ardmore sleepily , having
apparently been roused on the arrival
of the train.
"Air y'u the gov'nor ? " he piped.
"Yes , my lad ; in what way can I
serve you ? " and Ardmore put down
his jug and leaned over the guard

rail. It was just as easy to be the
governor as the governor's private
secretary , and his vanity was touched
by the readiness with which the boy
accepted him in his new role. His cos
tume , vaguely discernible in the vesti
bule light , evidently struck the lad
as being some amazing robe of state
affected by governors. The youngster
was lifting something , and he now
held up to Ardmore a jug , as like the
otter as one pea resembles another.

A Soldier Yarn.
Sir William Arbuckle Is a capital
speaker quality which has made
him exceedingly popular at society
dinners. He once told an amusing
story , at an annual South African din
ner , , about Sir Harry Smith , who , In
days gone by , was commandant and
governor at the Cape. The supply
fromhome , and necessaries of all
kinds for the soldiers , wasx generally
sadly deficient , and the men were oft
en In a pitiable plight in the way of.
clothing. There was , consequently ,
much discontent So Sir Harry had
them on parade , said some pleasant
things to them , complimented them
on their soldierly appearance , told
them what splendid fellows they were ,
talked of the service they had seen
together , and soforth. . When he had
finished , an old sergeant stepped for
ward , saluted , and remarked : "Thank
you Sir 'Any , beg pardon , Sir 'Any ,
but we don't want no gammon , 7
want boots. "
Thus Begin Each Day.

Irish Legislator Even Withdrew the
Words That He Was About
to Utter.
There is in congress a western rep

more than once "stirred up the ani

On one occasion he rose to de
nounce the statements made in a
speech that had been delivered by a
member of the other party. His im
petuosity led him to phrase his re
marks rather strongly.
"Order , order ! " exclaimed the
speaker , pounding with his gavel.
Again , in a minute or two , did the
son of Erin return to his charge of
wilful misstatement. Again was he
called to "order. "
It was a critical moment. His col
leagues , for motives of policy , did not
wish him to be put out.of the debate ,
so they hinted so by tugging vigor-
. "ously at his * coat tails. . . *
Now , it's a very dangerous jnatter
to trifle with the tails of an Irishman's
coat , save in the cause of friendship.
Nevertheless , the indignant yet good-
natured member recognized the com
mand of his party and sat down after
delivering this Parthian dart :
"I obey the ruling of the House , and
I beg to retract what I was about to
observe ! "
That one touch of Irish oratory took

Increased Capacity for Mental Labor
Since Leaving Off Coffee.
Many former coffee drinkers who
nave- mental work to perform , day
after day , have found a better capaci
ty and greater endurance by using
Postum instead of ordinary coffee. An
Illinois woman writes : . 4
"I had drank coffee for about twen
ty years , and finally had- what the
hector called-'coffee heart. ' . L was
nervous and extremely despondent ;
had little mental or physical strength
left , had kidney trouble and constipa
tion. ; ; . - . *
"The first noticeable benefit derived
from the change from coffee to Postum
was the natural action of the kidneys
and bowels. In two weeks my heart
action was greatly improved and my
nerves steady.
"Then I became less despondent ,
and the desire to be active again
showed proof of renewed physical and
mental strength.
. "I am steadily gaining in physical
strength and brain power. I formerly
did mental work and had to give it up
on account of coffee , but since using
Postum I am doing hard mental labor
with less fatigue than ever before. "
