PAGE EIGHT. DAILY dOUHIHH, ILLS, PA. MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 1030. II FASTER of BY ROY V i C K E R S WHAT HAS GONE BEFORE. A LAN BRENNAWAY, 35, has made a fortune. He asks Shirley Dane, beautiful, young, society girl to marry him. She r e fuses, bexwg secretly engaged to Roger Kelton, young lawyer, in whose care she has placed her inheritance, U n k n o w n to Shirley, Alan l«nds Roger half a million dollars to save him from bankruptcy, after he learns that Roger is the man Shirley loves. Alan takes as collateral worthless shares in a Macedonia development which Roger agrees to Investigate. After Roger and Shirley are ·married, Roger tells her Alan is a client of his and, therefor*, he cannot refuse to go to Macedonia. Alan, longing to -;ee Shirley, re turns to New Yor): from a rest in Vermont, Rogei, trying to ge out of his Macedonia bargain, uses Shirley's health as an alibi. (NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY.) I CHAPTER XV. KNOW what's wrong with these curtains now," she said. "When thi^ light is thrown upwards--" "It's a funny thing, dearest, that yoa didn't seem to realize 1 wanted Cynaz to myself for a minute or two," he interrupted. "1 know you did--and 1 was afraid you'd succeed," said Shirley, still manoeuvering with lights. "He told me to put $25,000 in Corto Bellas and sull when they went to fifty-eight." "Did he, by jove!" exclaimed Roger. "Half a second!" lie went to the paper-rack and picked up an evening paper. He found the financial page and then: "Good heavens, they're at forty-eight!" he exploded. "I'm afraid that's lost on me," said Shirley. "I can only repeat what hf said. Corto Bellas--fifty- eight. I've been repeating it to myself." Koltr.n felt his pulses beating. It was well-known that Cynaz did not give dud tips. Forty-eight-- fitfy-eisr,ht. He dropped the paper and turned to Shirley. "You clever little darling! 1 had no idea that that lovely head could hold slock market jargon, but of course 1 watched you once or twice and could see thnt you had absolutely knocked him. . . . What were .vou saying about those curtains?" "It tliom't matter." Shirley drifted about the room still occupied, apparently, with the lights. Some of them shone up into her face aa she bent over them, others sprang up at her touch behind tcreens of silk or porcelain and poured their shaft of radiance down upo_n her. Never had her beauty cried out to him as it did now, to night. . . . "Is she a cross little girl tonight'"' "Don't be silly, Roger- When i am tired it doesn't necessarily mean that I'm bad tempered, 'l haver't had enough exercise lately, I shall start riding again tomorrow." So matter-of-fact was her tone that his face tingled, as though · 'said by i'rennaway and what by himself a ti o u t that impossible Macedonian project, flfc could remember only isolated fragments of the scene. At one point he had shown Biennawny the list of clients whose securities the firm had hold. "By Jove! When he saw that list, Brennaway must have spotted Shirley's name. Must have! So that in helping me, Brennaway ·o · jmay reallj only have been con- Roge,, trying to get ce| £ ad to help Shirley. . . . No, wait a bit!" Kojrer had the sensation of being on the verge of nn important ·· He pictured himself handing Brennaway a check on account for, say, fifty thousand dollars. There would bo no brusquerie; he would, in fact, impart just a little touch of the grand seigneur. The whole incident would serve as a lesson in delicacy to Brennaway. Ho-- would convey that the mere handing over of part of the i loney in no way diminished his sense of gratitude for Brennawuy's signa! service. His mind went off at a tangent. For a me ment hn emotional boinp caught tre echo -if that ecstasy of gratitude he had felt the day Bren- naway hf.d come to his rescue. Lookeo at o ^ e r a stretch of twelve crowded weeks, the incident took on a queer hue of unreality. discovery. "Let's work it out.. , , Brenna- way is keen on Shirley. He finds that she is going to lose $200,000. To previjnt her doing that he paid up a half million. Rather an expensive and roundabout way of setting to work! But he is enormously nch. It's as if 1 had dropped a hundred or two to save her from a crushing disappointment!" Ho whistled softly. "Brennaway then found that we were engaged. That must have been a bitter pill to swallow. No vronder he is so sore and wants to make himself as objectionable as possible-. No wonder he wants me to go out there and mop up one of tho»« tropical diseases. That she 'iad slapped it. fie felt his tempor rising. . . . H e checked it. Absurd to quarrel just after such a markedly successful venture. A queer bird. Cynaz. Five thousand bought at forty-eight HiH pursuit of Shirley forgotten, Roger became engrossed with n pencil and pad When she left the room he did not follow her Hid calculations were- of the simplest nature. They did not really require a pencil. Twenty - five thousand dollars in Corto Bellas if he bought at forty-eight and sold at fifty-eight would yield a profit. of five thousand two hundred odd "We told mt to put $25,000 in Cortn Bellas and sell when they went (o fifty-eight." puts Machiaveili amongst the dollars. ful for would be no -kind of use for the purpose of reducing Alart Brenna- That would be very use- current expenses, but it way's impudence. It followed that $250,000 in Corto Bellas similarly bought s\ould yield a profit of fifty-two thousand dollars. That would be a very reasonable instalment off Brennaway's loan. He cou'd not quite remember the sequence of events He could remember only i mad moment when Alan Brennu vay wa. giving him, as he though i, a half-million dollars. He hu iself had been in a highly emotional itata. There liad been something dramatic about Brennaway's action which had seemed convii cing then, But now-"I wonder why he did it?" "Out of friendship for himself? But friendship couid not explain all the hectoring atout Macedonia and his personal expenditure. "1 beli«ve he was carried away ^ff the ciram v cu the moment. He telt that h« must rise to the occasion. He has had his little hour of glory and now he wants his money back. He intends to make himself a thorough nuisance if he doesn't get it." His mind atili dwelt on that twelve - weeks - old interview with Alan Brenn.'-way. Odd how memory became blurred by intense emotion! V hat exactly had been amateurs. Suddenly he was angry, with at primitive emotional anger that made his breath come in gasps. Brennaway ( had hi eye on Shirley when he v?as going through that sickening pantomime of friendship. And as for the Macedonian business, "Brennaway hud merely mentioned it in the first instance to cover his real motive. He pretended that he was making more or less of an investment when really he was making Shirley at present of the money. "He made a half-hearted attempt to get me to go out thera before' we were married. Macedonian Developments was a bit of luck for him. It turned out to be useful to him after all. Lord, how he must have laughed vhen i told him that I was grateful. He's had all the laugh he's going to get out of this particular trick, '· C To Bo Continued Tomorrow.)

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27--Highway- departments in -11 elates havo com-p IP ted their estimates of expenditures for road eonsfruckm and maintenance In 1S30. In the four statso- not yet reporting fully, estimates have been based upon funds available for 1928. The tola) estimated amount to be expended in all states during 19?,J slightly exceeds $900,000,000. Even at this rale, as Samuel Eckels, state highway engineer of Pennsylvania anrl president of Die American Areociatlon ot State Highway Officials, pointed out at tecent hearings before (he Houae Committee on Roads, load building is not keeping pace w i t h the jncreasect uso of the automobile. Cpnsidering the fact that 1930 highway construction and maiiucimnca will involve nearly one billion dollars, all of which will be spent under etato supervision, the speed with which the estimates have been prepared ami submitted betoro the House Committee on Roads indicates that practically all state highway departments -are ready 1'or vigorous and efficient action, and in hearty response to President Hoover's call for full speed ahead in public work. Viewed in the light of results so far assured in placing a check upon excessive road repairs and motor vehicle operating costs through tho construction of eubetantial highways, this vafct sum of nearly onp- billion dollars will become an investinen: rather than expense.
