EIGHT, DAtLY COURIER. CONNELLSt TLLE, PA". SATURDAY, JANUAKV IS, lf):;0. ON'EV BY ROY V I C K E R S / WHAT HAS GONE BEFORE. A LAN BRENNAWAY, 35, and handsome, has made ;i fortune in **· Mexico. He loves Shirley Dane, young, society girl, and, upon his return to New York, proposes to her. She refuses, saying she love's someone else. At a reception, Alan meets Mr. Cynaz, financial shark, -whom he distrusts. Later he receives a mysterious card that Roger Kelton, young lawyer, with whcni Shirley's inheritance la invested, is bankrupt, Roger adrnits it is trvtc, blaming his late father's swindling, and stating .that his chief creditor is the g-ir! to -whom he is engaged. NOW GO ON WITH THE STO^Y. CHAPTER VIM. A LAN, turning, took the list; it consisted ol a column of nam«.'i and figures. "You stopped counting about half-way," Alan said a moment later. "You're in for SiS^OOO. Call it a half million. Idly Alan'-s eyes wandered down the column. Thirty thousand dollars; $36,000; $75,000. Mostly smallish amounts. People living on mnall incomes to whom this would mean total ruin, no doubt- Widows arid orphans--the kind of people who l e f t their affairs wholly in the hanrls of a trusted firm. One bic amount caught his eye-$300,000. Then, o j p o s i t e the amount, hp read the name: "Miss Shirley Dane--$200,000." Slowly, as it seemed, Alan pieced his facts' together. Kelton's pteatett single creditor was the jnrl to whom he ·fas secretly on- gaged. The greatest single creditor wai Shirley. Therefore Shirley v»t, secret!y engaged to Kelton. Helton was the man whose name lihirley would not e i v c him Incidentally, and, it seemed, separated by hours of thought, came th^ reflection that .Shirley "as entirely penniless. But now, of course, nhe could not marry Kelt*-'.. Kelton himself had said so. She would be sorry--but she v/ould free. His pulse- leapt at the thought of her freedom. As to the fortune she had lost, he would settle twice that on her when-He pulled hnnaelfnip. What had V.e really been dreaming of all those seven years when he thought of that appealing fair face against « backgrounv! of darkness? Now suddenly for the first time he understood. ' He found himself being whirled from fathomless^ depths of introspection back to reality. He was in someone's office. Kelton's, of course". From somewhere Kelton's voice was speaking. "Call it a half million, eh I It might just as wel! have been a million as far as I'm concerned," Yea. Alan understood very clearly what he had really been dreaming all these *even years. But he must go slowly. No leaping in the dark. "Kelton, you've told me so much you may as well tell me the rest. Have you any idea what he did with the money?" "Oh, I know he didn't spend it on women. But how docs that help me?" "What did ho do with it?" repeated Alan, "He snnk it all in a wild-cat financial scheme. There's a company with some absurd name--oh, ,yes, the Macedonian Developments .--in which he holds pretty well ·all the shares--sorm million and a quarter sheer waale paper." "Macedonia!" echtf'jd Alan. "It's n wonderful country with vast possibilities. Have you got any of the papers handy?" x Kelton went to th« safe, which was unlocked. He paused significantly before it as if to invite Alan's attention to the fact that it was no longer necessary to keep it locked. Then he took out a folder and gave it to Alan. in five mm- utes Alan had mado a lightning study of'the prospectus, lie came to the mineralogist 1 ! report, saw that it was favorable; then noticed the name. "By jove, that report was writ- ton by Norland 1 I know him--he's a thundering good man. There might be something in this, Kci- ton." Kelton sighed. ' "I'm afraid there's no chance. Of course I know uctthjng about this sort of, thing, but I jjot one or two expert opinion 1 was told there wa» no hope of iinjone being able to do anything witlv those shares. I have t r i e d to bell them again and again." "The shares--ye? But t mean the thing itself, HIP mines;--the railway, the land. '} he main job as far as 1 can sec at present is to get Government protection from the Cornitadji--bandits, you know --while the railway is being built." " B u t -- Macedonia! I hardly know where it is. And I'm not much good at that sort of thing. And anyway I ccuM not very welt goi now. It would look like running away--and I won t give anyone the chance to say that of mo." Alan stared at the prospectus: but his mind was elsewhere. . . . So Shirley really v anted this boy? Strange! tt woull be useless la attempt to argue with her--useless in the end to ito anything but give him to her. One couldn't, of course, judge the real value of Macedonian Development without a thorough examination. It mii;ht be a . good mine--more probably it would result in /the mere loss of Kelton's traveling expense?. That again did not 1 matter. . , . "This Macedonian stunt rather fascinator me," Alan began. "You'll torgivt me, I know, Brermaway, if I ay that just at present 1 don't f el--" "And I'll fend ou," interrupted Alan, "I'll lend you half a million on the collateral ecurity of those shares, if you'll f o out there and see what you can do with the local government." He heard Kelton gasp, but for the moment he had forgotten Kelton. Half a million for a parcel of wildcat shares --no, for a wedding present to frhirley. inp And so at last Alan's weddinfi present to Shirley had taken tho form of a husband, ' "Brcnnaway -- I believe you'rn mad," cried Kelton. "You know as -well as I do that those share-5 are worthless now," It was still Kelton speaking, Alan decided, and tried to forco his attention. " "What?" he isked absently. "I say it's a personal Joan--a gift out of pure charity--" "Which you are not in a position to refuse," Alan cut in, "Resides, you're talking :xwful nonsense, old man. I'm going to make something out of it, too, if you have any luck when you get there. We'll go into all that later. I take it your office can keep things going for six months or so?" ' T h e m came sofne «.ind of affirmative npiae from Kelton, and Alan hurried on: "Well, now, we "hall have to move pretty quickly. Get a clerk up here, write a formal letter to Tiandon enclosing a check 1 to the value of his securities nrjd apologizing for the delay. Then fire » writ into him for libel. Get that don? as quickly as you can. Wo shall have to go along to my bank." "Brennaway! Oh, my God!" The Wchtbury manner had col- lapsed»b.eforo '.he nervous reaction. Alun 'turned away, but the next moment (clt Kelton grip his arm, then chug to it like a woman, tub- bing like a woman. '"I'd kejed myself up to it. 1 intended to kill myself after the inquiry was over. You have given mo back life and everything. What's thf good of trying to say I'm grateful--how cnn I 1 f i n d words?" "Grateful br jiggered," snt'd Alan, attempting a vast geniality. "And as to finding words--you find word« to bully a tin-pot government, and you and 1 will make a handsome profit out of this little nightmare of yours." Kelton was seized with a convulsion. His knees sagged, Alan gripped him and put .am back into his swivel chair. "Steady, boy, steady!" he admonished, "Pull yourself together. You've got a lot to do and you'va got to do it quickly. Good Lord! Here, mop your face up. That's rij'ht. You'd better Javo a wash. Come along. Through here, Un't it?" A couple of minutaa later Kelton was back in his room, white but jtead?. ^Do that letter to Randort now, and arrange for the writ. You can Set him off when he's apologized. I ' l l wait for you in a taxi outside. Go to it, old man, you'll feel O. K. in an hour or two." Two hours later they were back in Kelton's office. In those two hours Kelton and Hood had been credited with half a million dollars. With the aid of another l.iw- yer, proceedings for libel had been begun against Randon. In those two houis, too, it seemed to Alan, KcUon's whole ohilosophy of life had changed. His very appear- ence seemed different.
