A man's past will catch him soon r or
They had been flva days over the sea ,
the young man and tbo girl. He had for
gotten whether this were the Atlantic or the
tea that sweeps tbo shores ot Elysium.
Now , on the fifth day , they were on deck
nd talking somewhat In this way
"You must walk with me , " she called
from her chair.
"It's a delightful punishment. "
"Thanks ; I believe that's a compliment. "
"Truth's a compliment , cb ? " he said ,
mlllng. "
"Tho best compliments , I suppose , are
these that pretend to be truths , but arc
lies. "
"I am afraid this Is getting rather too
fast for me , " he said. "Walt until I think
about It. "
"To carry out what you have begun you
ihould say to me , 'I can't think about It ,
lor I have to think about you. ' "
"Is It needful to say that ? " he said , lookIng -
Ing down at the girl. "How beautiful you
re ! "
By thc rules of conventional conversation
It was an utterly tnano remark and tbo
girl's laughter rolled out , full and delight
ful , but her volco was low.
"I am glad you think so. "
A deeper red tinged his bronzed cheeks
u bo realized his temerity.
"You know I do , " he said.
"Oh , do you ? This Is the fifth day of our
acquaintance. Today we shall bo at Sandy
Hook. "
Ho drew a long breath and his voice was
earnest. New York , nnd work , and to see
her no more.
Two elderly persons wrapped to their cars
were watching the two.
"What a remarkable girl Nell Wolvcrton
Is ? " ono was saying.
"Sho'8 certainly carrying on a remarkable
flirtation with that young man. Who Is
he ? " said the other with the severity of
position gained by effort.
"Somo sort of engineer in the employ
of the Wlnflcld company. Mary Winfleld
introduced him to Nell. "
"That girl would flirt with anybody. She
Bccms to flnd all men Infinitely amusing.
Isn't she handsome ? Now you would sup
pose she was somebody or other. But the
Wolvertons O , you know ! " quoth the other
"Her mother was ono of the most pushIng -
Ing women 1 ever knew , " assented her com
"Of the dead , nlhll nisi bonum , " said the
Imposing one. "Sho was an extraordinarily
ambitious woman. With pluck and ten mil
lions , and a daughter like that , an ambi
tious clover woman can do anything In New
York. The Wolverton money la said to bo
Indefinite millions instead. And now they
belong in Far Westchestcr. O , dear , how
many men have been after that girl' There
was the Marquis dl Rodlrl and the little
Cuko of Sussex , and Freddy Van Brule , and
she flirts and laughs at 'em all , Just aa
Bho does with that young man. "
Mary Winflold was watching the two with
much the same thoughts. This poor young
man didn't understand sophisticated young
women ; It was abominable of Nell Wolver
ton ; she was sorry she had Introduced them ,
ahc might have known that Nell would play
with any man as gho would with a cat or
n dog. O , dear , this Mclvlllo was so out
of It ; so busy and capable , and such an
efficient servant of the Winfleld company.
Hut Nell was Nell , and Mary ought to have
known better.
If Nell were Nell , eho was proving It
with a vengeance. She was making Mcl-
villo tell her of himself , and she was giving
him nothing of herself In return. Tlioy
were seated now , looking out nt the froth-
whlto and green in the ship's wake. Sha
' . was glancing at him again and again nltb
1 mild Interesting eyes. He was forgetting
himself and was telling how his father had
left him only money enough for school and
college , which he had Increased by some
tutoring ; of how be had worked and won a
position In n machine shop ot the Wlnflcld
company ; of how he had progressed far
ther and now was near the head of his de
partment and had been sent to London on
an Important mission nnd
A young man came lightly across the
deck and bowed nnd exchanged some re
marks with Miss Wolvcrton and nodded at
Melville v\lth a "who-the-dcvll-are-you"
air and passed on after a moment. Mel
ville's confidences suddenly chilled. This
youngster represented what he never had
known. The girl by his side understood.
"Don't mind Bertie ; he's Just Uertle. "
" 0. you know , " Melville began. "I'm eo
out of that set "
It's the Far Westchcster set , you mean , "
Bhe said graciously , as If she would Imply
tiolltely that there were many others which
ho doubtless frequented. "The men are
very stupid In It. It's all very stupid. It's
Just sport and gossip. For my part give
me men that do things. "
"I think. " said the young-raan-maklns-
. his-way , "that I prefer other men to dc
things and leave 'em to rue already done
Now , my father "
He paused , wondering whether he hai
better tell her , and then It seemed to him
now that he remembered tt. that this pu
him on a sort of eo.uallty with Miss Wolver
ton , as though the Inequality that stooi
between them was suddenly swept away b
the thought of this story , nut had he
right to tell her ? Xo , she wouldn'i
couldn't know , that was so long ago an
"And your father ? Go on I om Inter
ested. "
"Ho might have had the things , tn
money , to have put me In your friend Her
tie's position tt luck had be n his way an
It he hadn't been cheated "
"I never can think of you as. a man Ilk
Uertle , " Miss Wolverton said declsivel
with that calm confidence In her eyes ; th
e ) s may have b n rather more exprenslv
because this was the last day of all and b
would slip out of her life so soon. She wa
fair to look upon , clever , acoomplUhei
charming : thU fence of the sexes was he
delight ; she could no more avoid It tba
she could breathing. Our unsophUtlrate
young man fallM to understand her Latt
common sense wai to reach out from tl
trim , matter-of-fact depths ot his natui
and grasp his sentimentality until It hurt
"Oh , It's a llttlo story of what might have
i ) en years ago In Red Nugget gulch , Cali
fornia. My father was out there after gold ,
Ike the rest , and he fell In with a man
with whom he made a partnership In a gen
eral store. Sometimes , in exchange for
goods , they took claims. At first they made
a lot of money and then they ! o t nearly
every penny In trying to develop a claim
that failed. Well , each blamed the other
and they decided to separate. They could
decide on no other way than to cut the
cards. Eo they sat down one day and cut
and some things fell to my father and cocie
to bis partner. And the papers were drawn
up and the division made A week after
that a claim which had gone to my father's
partner began to develop. It proved a find ,
my father's partner made the beginning of
a great fortune that way. "
"Well ? " said the girl.
"Now the ehanty that served for the
etoro had fallen to my father , not the
stock , which went to pay the firm's debts
Three weeks after this my father eat talk-

she knew hold her ct"rr. Now she couldn't ,
try h would , think ot another tory
than the one Melville hud told her.
"Marx Winfleld Introduced me to a very
entertaining man on the Lutanla a man
who dos things , you know "
"What does he do , horses or yaehts ? "
said Bertie Townlle. " 0 , I say , Nell , you
don't mean that serious-faced chap you were
mooning about with so much ? "
"The very man , " MUs Wolverton said ,
without turning color.
And she told Melville's story.
"How extraordinary ! " gasped Mrs. Pern-
berton. "You do meet such strange people
at sea. "
"Business methods are oftentimes dishon
est. " said Judge Torbld , pompously.
"Yet- "
"Your story isn't funny enough , " criticised
Bertie Townley.
Samuel Wolverton I should say "Sam , "
the great Sam held his nose In his port ;
he's a thin , sharp featured , silent man and
looking at him one always wonders how he
succeeded In possessing such a daughter.
Driving home , he said to Nell :
"If 1 were you I don't think I'd try to
tell stories at dinner. "
"Why , papa ? "
" ' . "
"It's undignified.
"Do you think so' " she eald , petulantly.
She usually had him well In hand.
"What did you oy that man's name ts ? "
he aaked after a moment.
' Burke Melville"
Tg with a mining expert , who spoke of
10 big flnd on my fathers' former partner's
ucky claim ; and ho stated boastfully , to
low his value as an expert probably , that
e had told my father's partner we will
all him Smith that the claim was ex-
remely valuable. ThU set my father to
linking ; Smith had believed the claim to
e valuable. But my father could but ac-
nowledgo that the man had given him a
tiance , even if ho had dishonestly hidden
Is notion of the claim. That day my father
appened in the abandoned store. On tbe
able were the two packs at dirty cards ,
ust as they had been left the day of the
ivlslon. They bad cut in the bare Inner
oem , vhlch hadn't been disturbed since.
ly father ricked up these instruments of
Is bad luck and he saw that the pack
Imith had used had been marked. "
"How awful' ' " the listener said. "And
ou might have had money , It It hadn't
"If It hadn't been for Smith's dishonesty ,
eg , Miss Wolverton. But to return to the
tory. My father went to Smith , whom he
ccused , but Smith looked him In the face
nd laughed. 'You are crazy , man. And
ou haven't any proof. Who'd believe
ou' ' "
"Was that the end of It ? " the girl asked
"No , not the end of It. My father could
rove nothing Indeed. His affaire went from
bad to worse. He left California penniless ,
jiter in the east he accumulated the little
money he was able to leave ine. But it was
Iways a hard struggle for him and my
mother , who died shortly after I was born. "
"And Smith ? that's not the name. "
Melville hesitated.
"No. that's not the name. It's a well
known name , but we will let It remain
Smith. Everything Smith touched became
money , he was accused of dishonesty many-
lines in the course of his career ; but noth-
ng ever was proven ; he succeeded , and Is
.oday one of the powerful men of the coun
try "
They were silent , the girl grave.
"And that's the reason you think you
are not In the class of Bertie- Tow nicy.
Well. I don't want jou to be In that class. "
"If you would care that much ? " said he ,
: ialf lightly , half earnestly.
"O. I like you , " she said , cheerily , as she
might have said she liked a fox terrier.
And the man's dishonesty was really
your blessing ; It made you do things. O , I
know ; I know a lot of men , and tbe men of
the Far Westchester set are so tiresome. "
'O , thanks. " said he , lamely.
But > ou musn't be tiresome. Do you see
that line there' That's Sandy Hook ; I
Know It. I have seen it thai way a dozen
times. And I must be going below. O , I
bave been so much Interested "
And she went a sy brightly smiling , and
he fill suddenly the least like a fool. ThU
feeling was increased when he found In tfie
bustle of landing that she bad only a cool
hand and a distant "So glad to have met
jou , " and no acknowledgment of the fact
that he had asked to call , which she plainly
had evaded. He felt revengeful and a bit
of an anarchist. And the next morning
when he was reporting to Mr. Winfleld bis
success tn London , and being complimented
by the company's head , his success teemed
cheap ; he had a picture before him of a
bright , high-bred looking , exquisitely
gowned young woman , surrounded by flip
pantly gay persons whose world was not
bis , and never could be. for when one la
making his way ploddingly , with no particu
lar capital , he can't reasonably expect that
way to be made before ho may be gray and
all the desire for pleasure , life's good
things , quite gone.
It may b supposed that Miss Wolvertor
put the young man of tbe Atlantic out of hei
mind. Perhaps she bad some thoughts 01
htm or eUe she never would have repeated
the ctory he had told her at a dinner when
her father was , most unusually , her escort

Suddenly she turned.
"Papa , you were In California ? "
"Yes. what of It ? "
"Did you ever hear a story like that ? "
"I have heard a lot of stories ; California
is full of 'cm. Read Bret Harte. As for
your acquaintance , ho was probably yarn
ing. "
"No , no , ho wasn't. "
"What makes you think that ? "
"Ho isn't that kind of a man. "
"Nell. I think that you can take care of
yourself , but I don't believe you can judge
men. "
"Oh , trust me for that , " she said , airily ,
and at the moment she was. Indeed , trying
to judge no less a person than her father
She had thought that she understood him.
Had she' Ho was fond of her ; he denied
her nothing and she loved him. But there
wcru depths she could not fathom , and she
Knew no more of his real life , even less ,
than an outsider.
But now a sudden fear possessed her. She
rushed upstairs to a Httle room which she
used for her writing table and her books
and eagerly she looked for a paper in a cer
tain English magazine , "American Million
aires , No. X , Samuel Wolverton. " Had she
been mistaken' And then she rend. "The
beginning of this extraordinary fortune was
In ' 66 In Red gulch , California. Melville and
Wolverton were storekeepers who exchanged
a supposedly bad debt for the now-famed
Bulflnch mine. Wolverton bought out his
partner. "
For a minute the room seemed to swim.
" 0 , if mamma were only here ! " the girl
said meaningly.
"It's true true. This Is all his , and not
mine , every penny of it. And he Knew when
he told me ; he knew. "
And she stole down to her father.
She went toward him , the magazine In
hand , and held It before him. Wolverton
started. Ho had never seen her like this ,
and her pallor frightened him. And then ho
saw to what she pointed.
"Was the story he toll me true ? "
"What if It were' "
"What If It were ? " she said mockingly.
"You can't understand , 'what If it were. ' "
But the father said quietly , with a mas
tery of himself.
"If It were true , that Melville couldn't
have succeeded. He hadn't It In him. He
would have failed at anything. I cut loose
from him. "
"But you haven't told me whether th <
story Is true. "
"I won't acknowledge or deny It , " he said
at last. "What ot It ? You ought not to fine !
fault. My money has made you a position
as fine as any o' 'em. "
"Good night. " said the girl.
At the door he called to her :
"Nell , you haven't kissed me good night. "
"I can't tonight. "
And she was gone.
"A woman can't understand business
She'll get over It " But he failed to sleej
well that night. She was not at breakfast
I ' He * ent to her room. She was sleeping
with a look that frightened him. On bis waj
down town he stopped at bis doctor's. "I att
troubled with that Insomnia. "
"Mr. Wolverton , " said the practitioner , " . '
have told you again and again that you niusi
let up on work and worry. "
"I know , I know , " said the great man
"By the way. I wish you would see Nell , I
am worried about her. "
He Kept himself busied down town untl
about 3 , and then drove through the part
in the parade , a tired-faced man peopli
pointed out.
As he entered the house he heard Nell'i
voice. He paused In the hall and 11s
"I am glad to see you , Mr. Melville , " ehi
was Baying.
"I bad your note , and came ben
promptly. I think "
"Yes , promptly "
"I have passed you several times , but
don t btllevc jou SAW m . " Mflrlllo said
rather bitterly
II * WHR thinking how charming she ap
peared here In her own bottle. He was
blaming b1m lf for all that b bid thought
of her , hen her world , of which he tad
that brief glimpse , had been shut out.
"I tent for > ou. " Nell went on , "to ask
you why you told mo that ttory when
when you Knew that > our father's partner
then was ray father. "
Tbe listener started , nnd moved toward
the door , and drew tack.
At last he beard :
"Miss Wolvcrton yes , It was so , It Is eo ,
and I was a coward to tell you.
"I am glad you told me. " Nell said hum
bly , for this was no longer the proud Miss
Wolvcrton , she wondered at herself , leers
were In her eyes , and self-control was far
aw ay.
"I don't know what made me tell you , and
yet I do know. I have lied ; I do know now.
You seemed so far out ot my reach , and I
wanted jou to ho in my reach. Do you un
derstand ? "
"I don't Know that I understand , " the girl
said. "I can't seem to understand. "
"And O , you are crying. I have hurt you.
I wouldn't hurt you for the world. "
"Don't , " she said ; please don't. "
But he way saying :
"I know the reason now. It was don't
you see didn't you see ? "
After a moment the listener heard Nell' *
"It's best so. If jou do. It rights Itself.
And I see It clearly. I know now why I
didn't want you to be of Bcrtlo Townley's
clnes. You are a man who docs things and
will a man for a woman to bo proud cf ,
and yes It's all clear to me I thought I
was just tllrtlng with jou. But Elnco that
ight I know It was more. "
Presently the portlcrs was pushed aside.
Wolverton wag possessed of a certain grim
umor and instinct for the management of
ho quick crises was thc measure of his EUC-
css in affairs.
"I am Samuel Wolverton. nndou are
urko Melville , " ho said. "I listened to jour
onvcrsation. I won't apologize. I am glad
f it. It seems to me , Mr. Melville , that
'our ' father's fen has it back at mo now.
t seems to me that you hold the marked
atdg. " He stopped and looked at the two.
nd then went on : "Mr. Melville , what's
t the ministers say ? I am not much nt
; olng to church. But don't they say that
hen a man has wronged another the best
mends ho can make Is confession of his
aults ? "
But although a moment after the young
man extended his hand , Wolverton was con-
clous that his daughter , whom ho held his
earest possession , never would bo the same
o him , that distrust lay between them ,
hat , at the height of his success , Melville s
on had turned thc marked cards against

1'retent I'rnvncctN of the lle-
puhllcmi Party 1'lx-ro.
Hon. Robert J. Gamble of YanKton , who
was nominated for congress by the con-
cntlon at Mitchell , Is in thc city visiting
he exposition. Ho declares thc prospects
'or republican success in that state could
not bo better. In tolKlns of the prospects
the campaign , ho Bald :
"Our majority for the entire state ticket
will bo at least 5,000 , and I shall not be
lurprlsed to see It go up to 10,000. Last
rear the total of the republican majorities
n the several judicial contests was about
2,500 , and two years ago wo lost a part
of the state ticket only by an accident.
"In this campaign we will have the tre
mendous advantage of the bountiful pros
perity which the state Is already enjoying
and which is certain to Increase. It Is a
great satisfaction to belong to a party
which thrives on the good things of life ,
nstead of being compelled to hope for
alamity as a basis of political success.
Our people are feeling buoyant , and In
every section there are accessions to repub-
"The logic contained In H L. Loucks'
ettcr to the Mitchell convention , showing
how worthless a fusion of populists with
he democratic party really must be , so
far as promotion of any principle is con
cerned , is on Indication of the dissatisfac
tion prevalent among a considerable pro
portion of those who have been acting with
the third party ; and this general dissatis
faction , together with the positive step
taken by Mr. Loucks In allying himself
again with the republican party , will un
questionably bring us a great many votes.
"The hopelessness of the free silver cause
will quite surely lead many republicans
to return to the party which they left in
1S96. A largo proportion of them had
given credence to the predictions made by
Bryan and Pettlgrew , as to the terrible
fate which would confront the nation If
McKlnley should be elected president , and
now history his demonstrated those pre
dictions to be absolutely false. Even If a
good many republicans two years ago were
fooled Into abandoning their party to fol
low such a phantom as unlimited free
coinage , not all of them will bo so foolish
as to continue the pursuit when the bard
facts of the market reports prove it to be
"On top of thete things which demon
strate the illogical character of so large a
part of the opposition , there Is the direct
and positive statement ot American pa
triotism which goes out to the republican
national administration for Its admirable
conduct of the war against Spain. No op
position orator on any stump or writer in
any newspaper will have the effrontery to
challenge the splendid record made In this
war by htm who was the standard bearet
of the republican party In 1896. This record
either will win support for republicanism
throughout the country , or clso the Ameri
can people am unappreclatlve and ungrate
ful and I do not believe they are. "

LONDON' . Sept. 2. A report was current
lere today that a treaty of alliance between
Great Drltain and Germany , on the lines
of the speech of Mr. Chamberlain , the
s cretary of state for the colonies , was
actually completed yesterday. This Is prob
ably an amplification of the gossip relative
o the dally iisits of Count von Hatzfeldt-
Weldonburg , the German ambassador , to the
British foreign office during the last fort
night , which have been attributed to a
leslre on the part of Germany and Great
Trltain to formulate a common policy In
regard to Russia and China. Another ex
planation of the German ambassador's visits
.0 the foreign office here is that they relate
to the mixed tribunals of Egjpt. the Inter
national agreement on the subject ending
n February. Through Trench and Russian
nflucnce the court has already hampered
the British plans for the use of the Egyptian
savings and the advancement of Egypt.
Now , It is said , an agreement has been
ilmost reached by which Germany will sup
port the British views relative to the future
composition and powers of the mixed
It Is said that as a quid pro quo for
Germany's support In Egypt Great Britain
will recognize Germany's claims to utilize
Syria as an outlet for Its surplus population.

The Pall Mall Gazette this afternoon says
It has received from a source in which it
has every confidence information that the
Anglo-German agreement was signed this
week by Mr. Balfour and the German am
bassador in behalf of the respective powers.
Continuing , the Pall Mall Gazette sa > s that
while the agreement Is restricted , it em
braces an offensive nnd defensive alliance
in certain eventualities.
The Pall Mall Gazette adds : "This new
and momentous departure In our foreign
policy comes as a natural development of the
European situation. "
The Pall Mall Gazette then quotes the
speech which Mr. Chamberlain made at Bir
mingham on May 13 last , bidding for a
German alliance , and continues.
Latterly It has been evident , from the tone
of the Ecmi-offlclal German press , that the
two governments have bo ° n draw MIR closer
and finally there were prolonged conferences
between Count Hatzfeldt and Mr Balfojr
The departure of Count Ilatzfeldt provi 3
that thc object of the consultations has lx-fn
achieved. Besides , Mr. Chamberlain has
gone to America , Lord Salisbury la prolong
ing his absence and Mr. Balfour leaves fnr
his holldayo on Saturday. Evidently the
ministers do not expect to ha\e to deal with
crucial questions of foreign policy.
Mr. Balfour , when questioned on the sub
ject this afternoon , absolutely declined to
discuss the reports in circulation regarding
an Anglo-German alliance.
Count Von Hatzfeldt , who was believed
to have left London , was again at thc foreign
office this afternoon.
It is reported on the stock exchange that
the Anglo-German alliance or understanding
relates to the British purchase of Delagoa
bay , with Germany assenting. As a result.
