Mr. Barclay couldn't help being fond
of Tommy, but In some ways Tommy
proved an awful disappointment to htm.
Adopted Into and brought up to be an
ariatocrat of wealth, he had no Interest
In money except to spend It. I don't mean
that he waa especially wasteful or es
pecially extravagant, but only that he
look no Intereat in how the money had
gathered or how It could be made
to work. Hs was much mors Interested
In horses and boats and dogs and shoot
ing than In any of his patronia financial
affairs. He went to boarding school and
played oa the foot ball team and the
hockey team and the base ball team. He
took prises in everything that he engaged
In, except studies. It was the same with
him at college. He spent half of his
time winning trophies for his college and
the other half making friends for him
self. When he graduated Mr. Barclay
tried to teach him banking, railroading
and a few other trifles all at once. Mr.
Barclay had not patience with the Idea
i that it la best to begin at the bottom
and work up. He believed In beginning
at the top. Tommy did his very best to
! make good. He attended long-drawn out
; directors' meetings and he racked his
j brains to understand what they were all
j about He travelled all over the coun
, try to Inspect this property and that, and
onoe he almost got Into touch with fl
I nance; at least he found amusement in
I one aspect of It. In short, he was sworn
In aa a special deputy In a time of coal
trouble and helped to put down a strike.
Mr. Barclay did not expect too much
of Tommy, and soon saw what little ha
did expect he was not likely to get. But
he was very fond of him and tried to
make the beat of him. Tommy spent all
his leisure time playing polo or tennta
or washing off on hunting trips, and some
fourteen or fifteen years after this story
opens he became very much Interested
In Miss Mary Blackatone.
He badn't forgotten the little Ames-
bury girl. He never would forget her,
but whet is the use of a little girl who
lives In heaven to a young man who
Tommy often dream 1 about her still.
As he grew older she grew older, and

rducuted by the most scientific and
phtloaophlrat of all the salnta and angels,
became more snd more sophisticated and
less and less like tho pslsre scene In a
.bad a hundred rooms in It; other people
said that there were 0. These, however,
did not effect Tommy. He wss on the
most cramlng snd intimste terms with
her father, and there was one southwest
room In which ho spent many and many
a week-end. which was alwaya known to
the Blackatone family a Tommy's room.

If she liked Tommy better than any
body elsn she was In no hurry to say so.
Hhe didn't want to cut herself off from
all the other younx mon, whom she liked
almost as well, Carlton rltch, for in

Once, years ago, I took a girl of 14 to

woman who had been questioning her
about some relation.
"You know your answer should have

owned, but how could I tell her the
