As he descended,the staircase., leav- «ng Otis with his daughter, the bevy -of servants In the hall ceased their er- -clted whispering, and rendered him •ilent awe. • . Fitzhugh did not. go to his office the following day, but .motored far out along the north shore. His mind'was » blank until his car was turning in • and out through th'e mesh of traffic in State street. The newsboys, ever vociferous at the -day's, end,-.seemed to have an unwonted note of excitement ta their hoarse cries of "Extra!" De• layed at Monroe street by a policeman mt the crossing, he tossed .the .newsvendor, on the corner a quarter-dollar and ordered all the papers. The first one he opened was a pink-and- black sheet, damp from "the press," and blazing on .its first page this: i -.1 ""•wpsiAN WOULD' KILT. RUSSIAN ; .' ENVOY. • ' • i ' DIES BY OWN BLIND J . • • i • _ This much he read In one hurried .glance. 1 What followed he devoured in snatches, getting the gist of the matter In'a minute's perusal: , "Esther • Strom .'; . . Anarchist Plot ... . Assassinate ambassador . . . fe. &-O. s'tatiou . . . Secret Service ... Swallowed prussic acid . . . Found dead in cell." "What the- Dickens Do You Want to Expose. Your Hand For, Dan?" CHAPTER. XII. Fitzhugh awakened next morning, to the ringing of his telephone. It was Hunt He cut short the flood of questions/and, still in his pajamas, got a small valise from a closet and began filling it with' shirts, collars, and such other articles as a man needs for a short journey. When he reached his office, for twenty galvanic minutes, without a wasted word, he outlined concisely what he wanted done during his absence, considering and settling various problems that in the interiur'raight arise. Perceiving the flight of time, he snatched Ws hat from the floor, and, with Hunt trotting along beside, hurried to the elevator, still giving directions nnd advice.'Down the elevator shaft, through the rotuncia of„the first floor, to..the automobile • in Adams ' street, and thence to the railway station, he continued the terse counseling. , As he dashed into the Grand Central station, ran down the midway toward his gate, the conductor called '"Board!" and Ms train pulled out Tip caught the last Pullman as it moved from the shed. i Fitzhugh returned from Washington In four days, a changed man. There had been little he could do; so little, indeed,, that he felt his trip had been wasted. He had located some members of Esther's' family and had given them, quite anonymously, a sum of- money larger than any they had ever Tmown. Then he took a train for Chicago. There was nothing else to <lo. Bit Be could not forget. Vividly •gainst the background of his mind were.marshaled all Esther had done for him.i all .her;little acts: of kindness, Jier unselfishness, but doglike'devotion. And_then_he. .wouM think-. of .the re. flultal, ; he t had ''made. .His memory flogged him.pitilessly. . He vthought of *-°^:! le h ?<* Jtft he-kalone vdth Niko- 'lay that morning, of his lucpinpassion- at«ness the last time he saw'her alive, •f the death-dealing message he had / Met, the needless cruelty •"Brnte!—I was .always a brute to her. ..." .It was- nearly eleven when tie reached his oAce. He had come directly from his apartment in his automobile, and wore a motoring cap and c.oat, unessentlals both, the last of which effectually concealed all apparel beneath'it from,the collar down. Hunt, coatless and with his shirt sleeves rolled to his elbows, sat at the great flat-topped desk in the inner Bnnctum, head over heels in the day's •work. , With a brief excuse for his tardiness, Fitzhugh took the chair'at the opposite side of the desk and scanned lie. T5honeT ^W'hithet'- awayj Yachting?" "No," ; replied Fitzhugh, appending Ws. slgnat-ure to the rest of the papers. No, I'm not going yachting." He put down his pen, picked up his cane, stood np. "I'm going .Into the pit" : "But what the—" Hunt, who had half-risen from his chair, sank back. bewildered. "What the dickens do ,you want to expose your hand for, Dan ?" Daniel showed his teeth in an odd -grin. For an instant it somehow suggested to the other something sinister —like a wolf baring its fangs. "Better conje along and watch me, Hunt,"— starting toward the door. 'Tra going to give 'em something to talk about Coming?" He waited at the door, flapping his cane against his Immaculate trousers. And this -day began a spectacular flourish of showy histrionics unrivaled before or since on the Chicago Board of Trade. During the rest of the day's session in the wheat pit, Fitzhugh, the actor, was the center of all attraction. The visitors in the gallery remarked him and pointed him out to one another; the . speculators, dealers, brokers' clerks, officers of the board, all those whose duties brought them on the "floor," soon or late found their attention directed toward him. His extreme height, emphasizing his unusual garb. rendered him strikingly conspicuous among his fellows. Of them all he was the only one who stood out distinctly. He was the only one of .his sort The. dramatic scene comported with him. He was in his native element This was 'the moment he had dreamed of long ago when • he had stood up yonder in the visitors' gallery his whole being keyed to the martial pitch of gold that screamed to him from the battlefield. <*• »• MBttMMt) Never in the world were thare;d nuts like, Calumet dougfrnuts.
