It was late when Elson left tho club.
As he paused on the stops to turn up
the collur of his overcoat and buttou
hjs gloves, he wondered that time had
flown so swiftly. It seemed that ho
Imust walk home, for not a cab was In
sight." An ho waited, a belated carl
scurried past on Its way to tho barn,
like a frightened rabbit. An arc light

heard the janitor snap the lock In the '
door behind him. i
He must walk there was nothing
else for It. Tho prospect of a two-
mile stroll through tho snow was not ;
inviting; still, there was the comfort-1
Ing nssurance of a bed and a fire at i
tho end of it. A fire! Gad, how cold
it wad! Elson shivered and- pressed
his hands to his tingling enrs. Ho
tried to light a cigarette, but tho wind
blew out tho match, and toro tho
paper from his llpe. Ho shivered again,
but facing the storm, ho started out.
It had stopped snowing, but tho
twisting wind whirled tho heavy flakes
through tho empty streets, and piled
tho white stuff in great drifts 'n the
alloys and sheltered places. Once In
a while, as tho flying clouds parted for
an instant. Elson could catch a mo-
montnrv climnso of tho moon, iustl
completing her course in the Western
sky. There wns little solace In these
stolen peeps, however, for tho sudden

ish whon he turned, to watch them.
Elson wns not easily frightened; ho

wander about tho streets at 2 o'clock. The program .consisted ofCtho read
In the morning alone and In a bllz-,,, nnd dlBCU88,on of two aotsorlg
zard. The cold, tho wind, tho twist- j
Ing snow, and the elusive shadows ,nnI l)oetry-
were a combination to which he was
not used. It nil seemed unnatural and .
Elson tried to whistle, but the wind
cracked his puckered lips and drove
bin breath down his throat. Ho tried
to hum a jaunty-' drinking song, but his
struggles against the gale were tlrinB
him, nnd the tune came only In jerks,
Exasperated, he set his jaws, Jammed
Ills flstft Into his pockets, and pressed
on harder than ever.
The sudden movoment caused tho
.gold In his pockets to jlhglo faintly.
I The ehibmnn'rf - luck had been irood

now fear assailed him: what anlght
for a hold-up! Hewould bo easy pick?
Ing for a thug. "WHy the devil hadn't
he gone to a hotel, or spent the night
with Harris? He'd be lucky to get out
of this scrape with a whole skin. Next
tlme.ho'd have more sense.
A dog barked. Elson, Jumped as
tho shot. Then- ho laughed fool
lshly. Heliadbeon drinking too much,
lfo told himself, and this all-night bus-
Inoss wa3 wrecking his nervous sys -
tern. Hewas doing what he had never
dono .before ha was losing tho last
remnants of thnt well' known nerve
which had been his chief stock In trado
for so many years. The knowledge of
this frightened him only tho more. (
There .was no uso evading It; ho was
afraid of Tho dark. Childish though he '
knew tho fear to be ho felt It conquer-,
Ing him. ,
-If I -walk In the middle of- the
street," he said to himself , at last,'
"they won't catch me off guard.at .any
rate." He continued his walk down,
'"Suddenly; as tho moon-broke thru
the cloudsfor an Instant, Elson saw
a, man going In his own direction .on.
tho -walk to the right. AC tho, saine
.time the'Btranger saw lilm.
"Good-morning!" tho latter called,
cheerily, "beastly weatner, isn't it;.
Wouldn't you like some company?"
Elson accepted the Invitation gladly,
and Joined the stranger on the walk. '
Now ho was ashamed pf his fears of a !
moment jago. lie couiu see mat nisi
companion was a genjtleman. Doubt-1
less ho was laughing at him.. Hut El- i
son was not the man to make lame
"There's been too many hold-ups i
.here lately," he confessed frankly.
"I'm carrying more money than I felt
safe with alone. I'm glad, you hap-
Tho stranger laughed lightly.
"I know how It Is," he,said. ''Jf yojil
