"They mako It look as black for him as for the others. Do you honestly believe him lnnocont, Dannerman?" "I do. Implicitly. The dread of exposure, the fear ot notoriety when tho caso comes up In court, has aged the man ten years. Ho begged me with tears In his eyes to Induco you to drop It and accept his offer ot restitution. Don't you think you could dp It, Dan?" "No, I don't." Maltland shook his bend with decision. "It I let up, the scoundrels get oft scot free. I havo nothing hgalnst Graeme; I am willing to make It as light as I can for him; but this business has got to be alrod In the courts; the guilty will havo to suffer. It will be a lesson to tho public, a 1m son to the scamps, and a lesson to (iraemo not to lend his name too freely to questionable enterprises." "And that's your final word, is It?" "Final, Dannerman. , . , You go ahead; prepare your caso and take it to court.

Maltland twisted his eyebrows In deprecation of Dannonnan's attitude; signified tho Irrevocability ot his decision by bringing his fist down upon the talle but not heavily enough to disturb the other diners; and, laughing, chnnged tho subject. For somo moments he gossiped cheerfully of his new power boat.

Dannorman pushed back his chair a few Inches, shifting position tho hotter to benefit ot a faint air that fanned In through tho open window. Maltland, twisting the sticky stem ot a liqueur glass between thumb and forefinger, sat In patient waiting for tho lawyer to speak. Dut Dannerman was In no hurry; bis mood was rather one contemplative and genial. Ho was a round and cherubic little man, with the faco of a, guileless child, the acumen of a successful counsel tor soulless corporations (that Is to say, of a high order), no particular senso ot humor, and a great appreciation ot good eating. And Maltland was famous In his day as one thoroughly conversant with tho Thai which they bad Just discussed had been uncommon In all respects; Maltland's scheme of courses and his specification as to details had roused the admiration ot the Prlmordlal's chef and put him on his mettle. He had outdone himself In 'his efforts to do Justice to Mr. Maltland's genius; and tho Primordial In 'Its deadly conservatism remains to thia day one of tho very few places In New York where good, sound cooking. Is to be had by tho Initiate. Therefore Dannerman thoughtfully ucked at his cigar and thought fondly of a salad that bad been to ordinary salads as his car was to an electric buckboard. Whllo Maltland, with all time at his purchase, idly flicked the nsh from bis cigarette and followed bis attorney's medltatlvo gaze out through the window, Decause of the heat the curtains were looped back, and there was nothing to obstruct the view, Madison square lay Just over the sill, a dark wilderness ot foliage horo and there made livid green by arc lights. Its walks teemed with humanity, Its benches were crowdod. Dimly from Its heart came the cool plashing ot the fountain, In lulls that fell unaccountably In the roaring rustlo pf restless feet. Over across, Hroadway rained glittering walls ot glass and stone; and thence came the poignant groan and rumble ot surface cars crawling wpoa their weary and unvarying Touads, And again Maltland thought of the City, and of Destiny, and ot the gray Slri the allhouotUi of whoso bond was art ot ordering a dinner. Imprisoned beneath the brass bowl on his study desk. For .by now he was qulto satisfied that she and none other had trespassed upon the privacy ot his rooms, obtaining access to them In his absence by means as unguessablo as her motive. Momentarily he considered taking Dannerman Into bis confidence; but he questioned tho advisability ot this. Dannerman was so severely practical In his outlook upon life, whllo this adventure had been so madlv whimsical, so engagingly Impossible. Dannerman would be sure to suggest a call at tho precinct police station. It she had made way with anything. It would bo different; but so far as Maltland had been able to determine, she had abstracted nothing, disturbed nothing beyond a few square Inches ot dust. . Unwillingly Dannerman put the salad out ot mind and turned "to the business whoso Immediate moment had brought them together. Ho hummed softly,- calling bis client to at tention. Maltland came out ot his reverlo, vaguely smiling. "I'm waiting, old man. What's up?" "Tho Graemo business. His lawyers have been after mo again. I even bad a call from tho old man himself." "Yes? The Graemo business?" Maltland's expression was blank for a moment; then comprehension informed his eyes. "Oh, yes; In connection' with the Dougherty Investment swindle" "That's It. Graeme's pleading for mercy." Maltland lifted his shoulders significantly. "That was to bo expected, wasn't It? What did you tell htm?" "That I'd see you." "Did you hold out to him any hopes that I'd be easy on tho gang?" "I told him that I doubted It you could bo Induced to let up." "Thon why ?" "Why, because Graemo himself Is as Innocent ot wrong doing and wrong Intent as you are." "You bellevo that?" His "I do," affirmed Dannerman. fat pink fingers drummed uneasily on tho cloth for a few moments. "Thero Isn't any question that the Dougherty people Induced you to sink your money In their enterprise with Intent to defraud you." "I should think not," Maltland Interjected, amused. "Hut old man Graeme was honest, in lutentlon at least.' Ho meant no harm; and In proof of that he offers to shoulder your loss himself, If by so doing he can induce you to drop furthThat proves he's In er proceedings. earnest, Dan',' for although Greaino Is comfortably well to do, it's a known fact that the loss of a cool halt million, while It's a drop in the bucket to you, would cripple him." "Then why doesn't ho stand to his associates, and mako them each pay back their fair ebaro of the loot? Tbat'd bring his liability, down to about fifty thousand,' "Decause they won't give up without a coutcst In the courts. They dony your proofs you haye those papers, haven't you?" "Safe, indor lock and key," asserted k property V "It a big enough haul to attract him," nrgucd the lawyer, earnestly, "Anlsty always alms high. . Now, will you do what I have been begging you to do for the past eight years?" "Seven." corrected Msltland. punctll lously. "It's Just seven years since I entered Into mlno Inheritance and you became my counselor." "Well, soven. then. Dut will you put those Jewels In safe deposit t" "Oh, I supposo so." "Dut when?" "Would it suit you If I ran out tonight?" Mtltland demanded so abruptly that Dannerman was disconcerted. MTAnUSIinD TOM DILLON, Sr., Prop. (Snccossor lo B. O.
