He made very few friends because, as he had long ago discovered, most of those men and women of the upper class, who wormed themselves into friend ship with him. did so with some ui-terior ob'ect. It was all a matter of money cf financial tips or loans. The men, as he had laughingly aecutreu, mostly wanted to borrow his money, while the women, pretty or ugly, wanted to marrv him for it.

"Ottawa Dairy" Milk BY WILLIAM LE QUEL'S CHAPTER I. In The Public Eye. Attention is drawn to a restful, solidly-furnished, book-lined room on the first floor of one of the largest and most handsome mansions halfway up Park Lane. From the four long windows of the spacious library was presented a wide vista of the Park, the trees of which, however, were leafless. Park Lane is the home of the finan cier, both British-born and foreign, both Jew and Gentile.

The house was that of a great, city magnate a man whom all Englishmen knew by name Mr. Mostyn May. His gigantic operations on the London Stock Exchange, and on the Paris Bourse, were olten sensational. London looked upon Mostyn May as a money-magician, a man to whom huge profits came from everything he touched. He had only to lend his name to any scheme, and its success was assured.

Often the papers told romantic stories of his huge gains, and sometimes of his losses, for, after all. he was a gambler whose throws of the dice had brought him many hundreds of thousands of pounds. Outside in the long, straight thoroughfare, flanked on one side by Hyde Park, rumbling motor-buses, taxis and cars were speeding swiftly- past, while beyond the iron railings opposite many people were promenading, for the afternoon, though cold was nevertheless dry and invigorating. In the room, close to one of the long windows stood Mostyn May himself, with a companion, his bosom friend Frederick Jaffray. Tall, broad-shouldered and athletic-looking, the great financier looked about forty or so, clean-haven, with very square-set jaws which showed dogged determination, a pair of keen, unusually deep-set brown eyes, dark wavy hair parted In the middle and weli brushed, and carefully manicured finger-nails.

Dressed with scrupulous care in a well-cut black morning-coat, a white slip beneath his waistcoat, and dark grey-striped trousers, he was a decidedly smart, good-looking man, whose face, notwithstanding its rather square hardness, betrayed a kindly expression, though his deep, thoughtful eyes spoke mutely of acute business acumen. One of the most successful men In our modern jjoncion, ana one wnose rise had been phenomenal, he had, as natural consequence, been greatly sought after by a certain section of London society, because he was often able to be of use to those members of it who were prone to erratic speculation. Yet, though many women of all grades, brunettes and blondes, old and young, fat and lean, had sought to attract him, he had nevertheless discarded all their alluring blandishments. Indeed, as a bachelor, he was never tired of uttering humorous sarcasms at the expense of his own married friends. Little of his life did he devote pleasure, for his days were always taken up in continual business "deals," and constant schemes which resulted In money making.

The Park Lane house was comfort-1 able, but he owned another In the I Is a Pure Food "Health and vigor cannot be maintained upon a diet of meat, fat or oatmeal alone," says Milton J.

While Mostyn May's face was pale and refined, and his complexion good, that of Jaffray was red, blotchy and bloated.

He was a man somewhat under the middle height, fair-haired, slightly bald-headed, and, by profession, was a solicitor. Prosperity was written all over him. Though principal of the well-known firm of Jaffray, Jones Martin, of Coleman street, a firm which stood high in the rank of company solicitors, he had also made a considerable fortune by following the lead of his bosom friend, Mostyn May whom he always addressed as "Mossie." For years the pair had acted together and, playing into each other's hands, had often been able to squeeze dry vendors, inventors and others, and so consequently enrich themselves. Jaffray, as he stood there in a blue serge suit, did not look in the least what he really was. Indeed with his stout figure and rather plethoric countenance he might easily have been mistaken for the skipper of a ship in his shore-going clothes, and the more so, perhaps, because of his breeziness of manner, cultivated, be it said, because he had found that such affected breeziness always paid.

The past of Frederick Jaffray was, like that of so many men in the city of London, shrouded in mystery. That he had been admitted as a solicitor earlier in life was proved, but his firm was but a mushroom one, and Mostyn May had really never sought to pry into his friend's antecedents. He was a loyal friend who was, at times, very useful to him in his dealings, and who had safely piloted him out of one or two of the dangerous shallows of city life. Therefore they had become most intimate friends. "I must confess." declared Mostyn Nearly a Quarter of a Century of giving higher possible value for your money has been the enviable record of But Mr, John Dolman Getting Anxious.

Mr. Dolman has been a well-known figure around the court house for the rast twenty years, where he acts as constable during the sittings of the Ontario Supreme Court and the county court. He lives In Blackburn and is sanitary Inspector for Gloucester township.

Pte. George Dolman went overseas with an Ottawa battalion and was transferred to an Eastern Ontario battalion with which unit he went jer telling him so. Since then not a word has been heard of him and as It has been learned Pte. Dolman was Incapacitated from further service at the front, his father believes he is on his way home and has not written so that his return might be a pleas ant surprise for his parents.

Not Cromwell himself ever devised a bolder experiment.

The Northclii'fe papers cease attacking the appointments of Arthur Ealfour and Lord Robert Cecil although the Mail refers to them briefly as exceptions to otherwise excellent appointments. The Times declares: "The cabinet is received everywhere with enthusiasm and fresh hope. The ditlieulties are immense but Premier Lloyd George has chosen the right way to solve them." The majority of the nominations receive detailed reasons connected with the personalities of Individuals concerned.

This is especially notable in connection with some of the appointments of men without previous experience in official routine. A warn ing note, however, is raised in this connection by the Times, which says that it will be necessary to beware iest these ministers become subject to the influence of permanent departmental officials, many of whom, it says, are apt to be active politicians and seek to impress their own views on the chiefs.

Mr, D. Cruikshank, general manager of the bteel Lqmpment Company of Ottawa, gave a splendid ad'lress on Steel Furniture before the Rotary Club at the luncheon in the Chateau Laurier yesterday.

"Every Business should be built on a basis of quality rather than price," the speaker said. "The old adage that the price is soon forgotten but the quality lasts was never more true 1 than it is today." I He maintained that a small con-. cern which specialized in. any particular line needed tariff protection. The difficulty of securing help had been largely overcome In his company by the employment of women anu girls.

There were now aoout iw women working in the firm's plant in Pembroke, filling positions formerly occupied by boys and men who have enlisted. He believed that the female help was there to stay. One of the big difficulties at the present was to obtain raw materials, it nearly all came from the United States and whereas before the war case of copper were made in thirty tase of copper was made in thirty tiays, now It took four months, and 'ontracts for these materials had to be entered into without cancellation privileges. The Introduction of electric welding had made possible great advances in the steel furniture Industry. Marked progress had also teen made in producing silent, smooth-working steel cabinets.

While there had also been improve ments in enamelling and graining so that it is hard to distinguish steel furniture from wood, yet he believed the future of steel furniture did not depend upon imitating wood but rather in producing beautiful furni ture that would have a finish of a instinctive effect to that or wooa. Steel cabinets are not fireproof, but they do not add fuel to a fire. He tead an interview from the New l'ork fire commissioner recommend ing that all offices in high buildings be compelled to have only steel fur niture. With the high rental of omce space there, the officers were crowded with furniture, and although the buildings themselves may be fireproof, a fire on any of the floors may make a very dangerous maze mat will cause considerable loss of life. The speaker prophesied that steel furniture would gradually replace wood as office furniture.

Mr. Cruik-shank referred to the company's ant at Pembroke as one of the most modern in the Dominion. Mr. V. D.

Matthews, president of the notary Club of Fort William and l'ort Arthur, explained that the ciud of those cities was formed in June, and had about 33 members. He outlined the work it was doing. The chairman of the Ottawa club, Mr T. E. Clendinnen, announced that there would be no luncheon next Monday, but that instead there would be an srening meeting.

Vict Mans S. A. Luke and E. E. Mackenzie were appointed representatives of the club on the F.eturned soldiers' Reception Committee.

P.o-Urb-n Henry Watters explained the winking of the Soldiers' Aid Commis-Mon and announced that an appeal was to be made to the people of Ottawa to assist in contributions for the working expenses of the commission. It was derided to vote from the funds of the club an amount e'l'ial to $1 per member in aid of the ''mmlssion. This decision iwu be a' t'd upon by the directors.
