MONDAY, JANUARY 13, 1930. THE DAILY GOtTRIEK, PAGE} NINiU. BY ROY VICKERS WHAT HAS GONE BEFORE. A LAN BRENNAWAY returns to New York after an abucnce of ** seven years in Mexico, where he made a fortune Going to th« dingy hotel he started from, hia thoughts flash to Shirley Dane, ·oclety girl whom he loves. He viaito Shirley and finds her more ·ympathetic and understanding than before. She tells him her father left her $200,000. NOW QO ON WITH THE STORY, H CHAPTER III. Interrupted her. thousand a year. From e capital of $200,000. Have yon had a legacy disco then ?" "No, ararae. "By Jove! It'fi tho interest, of That's seven and a yl |n rench proverb. "The more it changes the more it is the same thing," Of course it was thp same thing! Ha had moralized^ he had measured, ha had p-riggishly rejected--and it all cwme back to the truth that he wanted Shirley-- half per cent, you know I What have you got it in?" "I don't know, Cuthbert Kelton was the truotf*. I left everything* in Ma hands and soon I was getting much more. Don't look so ·fand Alan was doing his utmost not to crush Shii ley's frock -- a'brie;£ bus glorious affair of orchid mauv« uniji Mlvcr, with a sudden swathing v of black fur. ' She (turijied around and looked up at him. "Isn't it an awful little rabbit- hutch'"'he Remarked. "Only tho Westburys uould dare." i iTo her it was an idle common- **" place but to him a, profound mystification. Westbury, he knew, hod held a very minor po-st in tha diplomatic service some years Ahco. Anyone will teU you that Kelton and Rood are ono of tha best firms o*J lawyers in New York--though why they go! on calling themselves Rood when' Rood's been dead for--" ; "I know Cuthbert oaiite well," eut In Alan, "He used to act for my father. Always admired him Immensely. I'm go^ng to look him ftp," "Al»n, he's dead-;--nearly a year ago. Rognr haa the holm now." "Poor old Kolton! He was a comparatively young man, too!.. . 1 can't imagine that indefinite youngster of hia in charge of a huge clientele." "Roger itin't an Indefinite youngster. He's a little older than I am--and h«i's very definite, indeed." "Hello, Alan--oh, dear, I used to say 1 'Mr. Brennawayl' I'm so sorry, but it's, Shirley's fault." Shirley's Aunt Marion had whirled into the big room and was busy welcoming him before Alan fully realized it. Mrs. Sibley was small, thin, dynamic. While she held Alan's band her eyes roved her drawing-room and darted back to Shirley. "Were you talking about Rogor Kelton, darling?" She had cut negligently into Alan's inquiries as to her own health and happiness. You know, I think definite is the last word yon can apply to him . . . The poor boy was left very badly off, Alan, only five or six thousand a year and tho law business, I heard, and yoii certainly can't be very definite on that, I admit." lf l shonld have thought CutW»ert was wealthy," remarked Alan, uninterested, "Oh, he was very. Very. But he had a big family. There were strings of legacies. Such a take " ' "' ' ' dress. tho touch o? her, the sound of her voico, the right to ho!d to her lips the full cup she craved. Life came to him a.p a revelation, as a wonderful discovery; /and he saw himself a fool f r risking it a hundred times, for risking the moment in which he should win her. , . . Ho was looking down into Why was it that Westbury--and apparently only Westbury--would dare to ask eorna three hundred persons to a house that could not; comfortably contain two hundred --guests who, as Shirley had explained, included "everyone"? And suppose , We; tbury were to overshoot the mark, what would be tho penalty for too much daring? No tea. Shirley, I mxjst It takes much longer than it used to. You'll dine with us, Alan, won't you?" "Yes, do!" echoed Shirley. "We're going on to tho Westburys afterwards. The English ambassador is expected to turn up and everyone will he there. You 11 like to get into touch again." It was on the tip of Alan's tongue to vofusc. Shirley did not want what ho most wanted to give; therefore nothing he would offer her Then, m a fiush, time lost all its values. In H single second he passed through a number of subtle thought-processes. He was back at school vmtmg out a hundred times the translation of some Ahead of Them ff f a* One of the Biggeit Men Alan Had Ever Seen, her eyes, trying to t-ifl her that he had been a fool. .. . "Thank you," h« Maid, rathrr breathlessly. "I should like t» go to the Westbury'u I'll run along and change. * * * There was no obvious magnificence about tho West jurys. But ttoe Westburys had beon rich and, ai odd intervals, mildly distinguished for generation^, and it had become the esnence of their being that they need remind no one of those facts. Thciw hou o in Gramercy Park might have belonged to a prosperous business man. Alan 3rennav*ay, wedged with a ·score or so of other? in the narrow hall, wondered almost with detachment how they would make theh way to the staircase. Mrs. Sibley, Shirley ind himself had been forced into Indian file "What does ono do?** he asked Shirley. "No," "Dance?" she answered rather shortly, but the shortness, ha thought, was because she had been addressed by someone two files away. They reached tho foot of the staircase which could Just contain Shirley and Mrs. Sibley abreast. Ahead of them waa ono of the biff get men Alan had ever seen. Standing: stocc still with one hand on the bannister, he effectively blocked the staircase and obvion«ly intended to do so until the staircase was clear "Who is (hat fellow?" asked Alan of Shirloy. "That's Mr. Cynaz," she answered. "Wall Street, you know, You must have heard of him?"
