THURSDAY. FKDRUi* ElY 20, 1930. x H P J DAELY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLB, 'A. PAGE EbEVENV STER of MONEY BY ROY VICKilRS / CHAPTER XXXV I. 4iT *' y 0 * 1 find it chartiing you 1 mast havi» puessc d its so- iTet," said Alaunos. "You have discovered that it is unreal -the fabric of a dream. Others hava ajtraya told me, it varying phrases, that it is a richly appointed houi.e. That ha^ pleased me because I am purse proi d." "Part* proud) That's really foanjr," laughed Shirley "It It funny, because t hai the ·urprlsa of truth," ajjreed Maaroia. "I beffKti Ufe with very little indeed. I determined to become rich atxi I have become rich." "That la very romantic," said Shirley. "Too romantic!" said Maurois. "The romance has never crystallized into reality. It la the curse ol money- making that it nnnains 'n- cirrably romantic. In spite of myself, I »m still making rioney, for I havo attained the 'airy-story book ideal ef the purse f Fortun_ t _ M " ,u. "Yon mast be immensely rich if your wealth ia inexhaustible!" said SiJrley. "No: so very rich," corrected Maurics. "You forget that For- tunatui was a spondcr. He thought only of a purse into whu h he could perpetually dip for his needs and hia pleasure. "Now it is impossible to spend more than about a quarter million a year on oneself -- even to do that would require a great Joal of in- genuitr. Few of the great millionaires of the world actually spend IB rmch as that." "It'si hf.rd to visualije," agreed Shirley. ""Thit is why I thought more or lesa Ifr-erally of the pu -s» of For- tunatus. It is not hard to visualize, say, five thousand dollars in one's private banking account. In a day you spend perha 3s five hundred dollars, perhaps ,i thousand Supposo you were to know that whatever you spent, yrur banking account at the end o ' every day would show a credit ba ancc of ex- a.:'.ly five thousand doTars "Siippose that the solitary condition were that you should spend the money on your ow 1 needs and pleasures'? . . . To be able to pro- icide the purse of Fortunatus in its rnodCTi form -- thai, w w the ideal that nspired me. It has teen a financial possibility foi years now but, as I have told yoj, my house i in a house of draams." Something within Shiriey tristljJ. Th* drift of tha conversation had been meaningless to her hut there had crept into his voice a quality, that ilarmed her intuition. Instantly he~ reason and h»r cynicism came to the rescue. Mfiuroia was an "eMi-rly gentleman" who liked talking about him- bdf -- that was ail. This fanciful nonsense about the l ream-woman and 'he purse of Fortjnatus could hnve no personal application. "I am sorry your i reams have «5ver come true, Monsieur Maurois,'' she said briskly "But isn't it just a little bit Kastcrn? I mean, you have thought out the mosl wonderful toy in the woild. Don t you think that in the twentieth century women have grown a little old tor toys?" "No," an answered emphatically. "Th'-y havo merely changed the fnshion m toys as in everything e se Their toys used to be literal glittering; things -- a tiara, perhaps a fountain in a Paris garden -- a vilh, on the Riviera. No -- I have hardly noted the chinge -- it is a .=eat in Congress, is it not, or ptr- Ke hesitated "Do ifo on, Monsieur Mourois,' she invited. "Or perhaps, doni !ady, a con ·cession from a foreign Goverr ment. Shirley controlled herself, fougi t hack the angry flush won) I have mounted to her checks. Hf r thoughts were rioting. He mu; t have seen that photograph, sh · told herself, but could not ha\ *. given herself any reason for thinl · ing so. . . . She reminded he self that she was de-pendent on h a limousine. "Oh, that's a dig at rn« P* si e laXighed, with a deliberate display of stupidity. "And I only wkh the taunt vrere deserved. I' n afraid it isn't a toy to me--I'\e infested all the money my fath* r left me." "I am sorry to hear that," sa d Maurois. "Poor old Cuthbert Kf Iton must have put in nearly ever ·- thine that he had." * Again came the little shock f surprise. Shirley had said no wo d of Macedonian Developments o the Frenchman. Yet he knew. "When I was in New York la t, Mr. Kelton suggested that I migut interest myself, but my han la were very full. A very delightful man. I dined with him end n at us eldest son. I suppose he ;n- lerited the shares?" "Yes, and I acquired them frr m iim." put in Shirley o^jic v »v. "Y u enow the whole history of fie Company, I see. Monsieur MBU- ·ois?" "More or less The country is :omparatively small and one 1 as ;o keep informed," Shirley rose to go. Maorots rang for the limousine. She went or ier cloak, tecling a wild, unroas»n- 'njr desire to pet away. When she returned to the h ill, 3e was waiting for her. "If Stavros should prove di fi- cult, I should regard it as a pr vi- ere to assist," he safd. "For i ty- splf T have always found lim reasonably--obedient " Shirlev thanked him, said t lat the could not dream of trembling 10 bxisv a man and got into 'Jie limou.ine. It was not until she got hr me that sho faced the fnct that Monsieur Maurots had most deli! er- atelv offered her the conces-i on. On the following morning:, S iir- ey was able to persuade her,elf that she had exaggerated the im- oortancc of her conversation \ ith Maurois--that, in fact, it had no importance at all. Manroia had shown that he could speak fooli hly and even, if one were incline* to be prudish, more than a little offensively. "If I've got to fight my vay through all those officials, it'; no good being offended easily and snubbing everybody who deserves it," she told herself. "I can see as little of Maurois as poss bie, but I simply cannot afford to offend him." She would juat mention to Uan bhat she agreed with that the Frenchman was an amiable superfluity who must not be offended. As a matter of fact, when Uan came back two days later she forgot all about Maurois for the time. She heard the cnr stop outside and ran to open the front door. He bounded up the steps and gri iped her hand, his face, his whole per- n, radiating good humor. "Hullo, Shirley!" he excla mod heartily. "Hope you've ma? aged all right while I've been r way. Jove, I have had a time!" She had not known hi n so hearty, ao pleased with lumsel and her, ?inre his return from MI xiro. She gave him as much t malJ- talk of her doings as he w mted and then: "You look t.9 if you've got good news, Alan?" "I don't thjnk there's mu Jj in the way of news," he ansv ered At least, I've found nothini? ex cept a lot of facts that oupht to have been in those reports. The fellow on the spot evldentlj suffered from an e%ce«s of mo lesty, ·or else wrote a report which never reached old Kelton. . . . Do yon know that about six weeks' work would bring that railway into bring! The track is made the whole way--and there's only about forty miles of metals to lay "Theae comitadji fr lows, yoxi know--they're riot s p i t f f u l ! They simply want money. Miney again, Shirley! They don't destroy things they've no use for, such as a dump of rails--a couple of locomotive engines, trucks and what-not. They've no use for them and they Veuve them alone. With a good gang and six weekV work I'd havt something to show for it, an)' way." "You're just waiting for me to do my part, Alnn," she said wist fully. "Not altogether. One can't do much in tho Winter b re because these rain-i, although they don't amount to much, arc heavy enough to hang up tho worV. The Summer, for practical purp ^ses, begins about March. I think I shall amuse m}self by getting everything ready for a big pubh then--jven if the push never comes off. First thing I want is a bath. Then we'll see if we can amuse ourselves in some way this evening. I expect you've been pretty dull, eh?" Shirley marveled ia he dis- ' appeared. He looked ten years younger. An hour later he reippeared in evening dress and lau-rhed at her surprise. lf Did I mention that I'm taking you to the opera tonight?" he said, breezily. "On the way back I dug out the Director* of Macedonian Developments. They're all dummies and could give me no information at all, exceot that they were amply willing tr do what I told them. One of tl cm told mo there is a good traveling operatic company from Athens--they're doing Faust tonight and I thought if you'd care about it we might blow in," "I'd simply love to Alan!" she cried eagerly. "How delightful of you to think of it! I'll just have time to dress before iinner." It was tho happ est evenin- Shirley had spent for a long timr --perhaps the happie; t evening of her life. The theat-e was like small town theatres in the States Faust was the only opera her aunt could endure and sh herself was heartily tired of it. Nevertheless, she enjoyed every rrhinte of the evening, From time to tiror she glanced at Alan. Ilia musical sense was far less developed than hers, Faust was comparatively new to him and so was appreciated. She leaned back in their box so tha.t she could see his face and en icyod his enjoyment. "Fine, wasn't it!" he exclaimed when tho curtain had fallen yn the last act, "Of course, the scenery is a bit primitive, but the singing was excellent." He was holding her cloak and shs smiled to herself with infinite indulgence aa hr plastered it on to her with uti practiced fingers. "I'm all for ; bit of frivolity now aid a gain, you know, Shirley. That fellow gave me the name of a cafe where 1 could take you to sapper. Comr along." "He was unlike .ill other men in the world," she thought. Hi was being pleasant, '-ompanionablc trying to play with 1 er. Inevitably again she thought of him as a bear but this time as a nice bear Ae- tcrminpd to dance on skittles. As thpy entered -he ca f a thorp came to them queer, wild m u c u of native instrumeni-s. "Better /.tick p'etty close u me!" said Alan. 'I don't knoiv what this place is Lke so we »UF' bo ready to come out at a mo ment's notice. Yoi 'd better han, on to my arm." (To Be Continue-1 Tomorrow.) Coorrlilu I63f. by Ro?
