QUESTION:- What and septic sore : is the best grim's manner was rather loo jocular, bul of one thing the Major felt sure—Hubert Milgrim was a gentleman. His long horse face indicated intelligence, his dark eyes were thoughtful and kind. His at- tirc was never short of immaculate, and in the best of laslc. His language, cxccpl for infrequent lapses into slang, was punctilious. And the i Major could not hold these lapses against him, for Hubert Milgrim's life, by his own statement, had not been a bed of roses, he had pulled himself up by his own bootstraps. "That," Mr. Milgrim often said, "toughens even the mosl scnsilivc man." But as to whether Mr. Richard Brcen was as much a gentleman, Ihe Major was nol so sure. Ha mighl be. As Mr. Miigrim said, he did seem lo understand the oil business and was an asset with the papev work. Bul Mr. Breen was disposed lo address Ihe president of the company as "Cameron" or—at times—"Old boy." The Major did not exactly like Ihis. Mr. Milgrim, slill sufficiently sensitive to perceive the effecl of Mr. Breen upon Ihe Shenandoah's president, sought to excuse him. Rick, he said, was young, handsome, spirited, but, underneath, sound as a dollar, the salt of the earth. "Ah?" said the Major. "You know how a young chap is sir Always off courting some pretty lady.

Joricns, 29, the ounlain attendant, shrieked and aved other clerks over. In a shot I ,me the store was crowded with urious, chattering onlookers. The president, dropping by the two original associates, Milgrim and Brecn, seemingly inex- haustiblc at the outset, had been considerably impoverished by the cost£ of stationery and stock cer- .lificalcs. Many other items must also be charged against inilial capital, Mr. Milgrim said, and all were valid and necessary, though perhaps "unseen". But the stationery and certificates! Major Cameron could'sec and judge for himself. And wasn't he pleased with them? Pleased, indeed! The Major was entranced. : Cut in several .sizes, with matching envelopes, the stationery .was a creamy' white;-""so heavy that it crackled when folded.

' He was planning lo confound Miss Amy, when profits began rolling in ("by the wheelbarrow-load," as Mr. Milgrim put it) by remarking in an off-hand way lhat now her every wish could be granted 'Let s lake a trip around the world. We 11 take Ihe girls, find husbands for them.'Take the boys, loo." Oflen either by day or night, he floated into reveries of himsell as the granter of svishos.
