CHAPTER I. Continued. ,
The great neglected field of South
America stirred his imagination, and
he sought a means of making sure
of the contract without offense to
his conscience, which was built on
the letter of the law. At the same
time, he did not intend to overlook
the possibility of another competitor
acting with less scruple. He de
cided to employ that classic method
of conversion, by which great indus
tries assimilate the fearless federal
inquisitor. He decided to digest
"I need a representative for that
field, a very comfortable commission
he- can make of it, too," he said,
smiling. Instead of handling Argules
at this end, which was repugnant
to him, it should be a straight trans
action a retatning-fee and a liberal
commission. What was done at the
other end was not his affair. By
the time he had returned to the club,
he had passed upon a dozen bids
which he would be called upon to
offer or accept, appropriated $25,
000 for a test of a new Swedish sep
arating process, and planned a per
sonal visit to the Pennsylvania
foundiies, where a knotty question
with a labor union had to be met
with tact.
Back in his apartment, he passed
under the cold sting of the shower
and, glowing from a vigorous fric
tion, dressed rapidly while giving
his orders for the day.
"The blue suit, Gregory. Pack up
my things for over Sunday. Tell
Bingham the -car at 4. Better
slip in my riding togs; I might want
them." At this visit, the first of his
married life, represented to him a
social departure, he went to his bu
reau and carefully selected a hand
ful of cravats in dark; solid colors.
"A couple of silk shirts and, instead
of my riding clothes, put in my golt
suit and a brown cutaway that
ought to do " 1 He went into the hall
and returned to add, "And Gregory,
a pair of pumps, also." ;
. This week-end invitation to the
Dellabarrcs, at Chilton, was afn
event of such troubling importance
that he felt the need of superior
counsel. He passed into the great
tiled bathroom which separated his
room from his young wife's and, tip
toeing to the door, listened hope
fully. He had given orders that she
should not be wakened and yet hd
had hoped that just this one morn
ing she might-be up,' radiant and
girlish in ner 'pink panne-velvet
morning gown, giving a glow of
fragility and gentleness to the
breakfast table, to which 'for such
long years he had come with the
feeling of a lunch counter. He lis
tened, and then, concealing his dis
appointment, went into the green
dining room, where his eggs, which
had boiled three and a half minutes,
were waiting at his place, with three
newspapers and the morning mail.
He deviated again from his military
schedule and, approaching the white
marble fireplace, in which a gas fire
was licking imitation logs, turned to
survey with a feeling of still new
possession the heavy rococo walnut
furnishings, the massive candelabra,
the stout silver service, and the
flagrant red-and-white sporting
prints an assemblage which pleased
him enormously with its substantial
elegance. Standing thus, confident,
successful, and alone, before an imi
tation hearth in an imitation home,
he might have served as a symbol
of modern individualism. ' '
. But Forrester was conscious of
no lack. A -.decade - of ' boarding
houses, hotels,' and .bachelor lodg
ings had left-him with, the feeling

that home was a sort of inner office.
Not that, in the background of his
imagination, he did not have a vis
ualization of another home, set un
der the shelter of whispering trees,
with memories of other hands on
olden sofas and reveries in the
depths of charred fireplaces. Only,
this was for the future. For the
present, he wished to enjoy, and to
enjoy in the richness of his youth.
He had the need of the self-made
man- to visualize his success, of be
ing seen, of parading the beauty and
charm of the young wife, whom he
had chosen, as he chosehis chef,
his chauffeur, and his tailor, with
the instinct to achieve the rarest.
"Decidedly I shall refuse. I have
enough," he said to himself sudden
ly. "In five years.vl should be a
millionaire but what five years 1"

T. P. Gunther himself, organizer of
colossal enterprises, one of the three
despots of the street, in whose
hands lay the gift of a hundred for
tunes, had personally offered him
the presidency of the Osaba Kenn
ing and Smelting a vast property
recently consolidated by his inter
ests in the mining districts of Ari
zona and northern Mexico. The of
fer had been peculiarly tempting in
financial opportunity, but the condi
tion was attached that he should not
relinquish office before five years.
"No; I have enough," he repeated,
with a smile. But this extraordinary
and . un-American expression in a
country where the rich grow pro
gressively poorer was not as limit
ing as it appeared. In his content
ment, he embraced not only his
present situation, but that future
success which he could count upon
as his reorganization of the Cam
bridge Structural Steel made itself
felt.. ..
He established himself at the ta
ble for that trinltf oroeess of break
fasting, to which he ordinarily al
lotted ten. minutes 'ot ms schedule,
and which consisted in devouring
three or four courses while he di
gested the news of the day in the
headlines of two papers propped up
before him and sorted' his corre
spondence. From his mail, he carer
fully selected a dozen bills for Miss
Burroughs, the social secretary he
had generously provided for his
wife, who, at the end of the month,
would give him the total required.
He. finished .'breakfast, glanced
voraciously through a third paper,
lit his morning cigar, and. as though
staggered by the grandeur of the re
nunciation, brought forth pencil and

paper in the need of visualizing his
situation. He drew a neat dividing
line, jotting down in parallel col
umns the figures of the decision he
intended to make.
''Let's see how we stand: I have
$40,000 in good securities at 4j per
cent plus 1,000 shares of Cambridge,

$25,000, which certainly will be in
creased on the publication of my
year's report, I can count on a cap
ital of at least $150,000 within three
years." He contemplated the fig
ures, which, to his imagination,
crowned 20 years of struggle as with
a monument and, to his vision of a
bachelor, they seemed grandiose.
"Now for the other side. Salary
$50,000, bonus 20,000 shares of the
new common stock, put out at $10 a
share." He stopped and, before his
eyes, the figures expanded with the
vision of the future. He multiplied
Phem. by 20, by 30, and by 50, in-
scribing, in glowing progression, the
sums which represented the mount
ing fortune his efforts could accom
plish. "Yes; in five years I'd be a
millionaire. But those five years
that's just the point!"
He rose and entered the brilliant
yellow salon for the morning sur
vey of what he had himself assem
bled for the coming of his bride. It
was heavy; it was massive, and it
was gorgeous. A dozen eras crowd
ed together, Louis XVI, Empire,
Colonial, and Heppelwhite, amid a
profusion of Japanese prints, mod
em porcelains, and imitation flow
ers. In this, herding of bric-a-brac,
his eye 'detected a vacant corner
which offended it, and he remember,
ed a bronze on a marble pedestal
which would filK in., exactly.
"I'll have if se"nt up as a surprise
to the missis," he said,1 delighted.
He loved the room with the whole
some joy of possession. "Well, An
drew B. ; Forrester, I guess we've
settled that," he said, but a little
doubtfully. "Years are more pre
cious than money, and I've earned a
right to take it easy. In four or five
years, when she's had a chance to
play, we can buy a country place
and settle down. Children yes; I
suppose that will be all right then.
There ought to be some one to in
herit what I have to leave. I've got
enough as it is I'm satisfied. That's
settled. Everything's settled."

with a sudden feeling of tenderness,
pride, and gratitude. His pride in
her possession was the pride of his
whole self-made existence in achiev
ing the impossible, and his gratitude
was deepest of all that at the crit

from the struggle for power, at that
dangerous age when the self-made
