i. |HE news that he had been elected a member of the city council seemed to add to Blake's eight and twenty years. Like a tree stripped of its yellow leaves by the wind, so all his youthful fancies, his immature reason- ings scampered away. It was as if for the first time, he had gained a peep into a higher world—a man's world. He began to realize that life held a great many weighty problems. A body of people, friends and neighbors among them, had made him their mouthpiece, and they were going to trust in him. When the well-wishers had gone, and those who so eagerly congratulated him, had grasped his hand for the last time, Blake turned from the door and held out his arms towards his wife. "I'm - really - elected, Majorie," he faltered. "Really elected! Why-why it doesn't seem real!" "They've so much confidence in you, dear," she answered him, her eyes shining, her lips tremulous. "They know they can trust you. This new council is going to mean so much, so very much, for our town." ...

HOME CIRCLE MAGAZINE SECTION "Reward?" Blake frowned. "I have yet to hear of rewarding one for doing his duty!" The lawyer's eyes lifted. "This is your first public position, I believe?" "Yes, sir, my first." Again Davis mused, rolling the black cigar between his firm, white fingers. "The Milltown Gas and Electric Com- pany is a well-known and well-respected corporation, Mr. Blake, and has made every effort to please the citizens of the town. We have, within the past ten years; spent over a million dollars in this district. Don't you tiftnk we deserve a small amount of credit? Don't you consider our plea for the renewal of our franchise a just one—and most reason- able?" "I cannot say I do, Mr. Davis!" Blake's heart was leaping in a chokei sort of way. "Your rates are exhor- bitant for the first thing, and second, for a twenty-year extension of your franchise you are offering a third under the new company's promise." "Those are your views, are they, Mr. Blake? You are prejudiced aga...

EFORE the members of the Sagamore Fish and Game Association had erected their handsome club-house, and be- fore they had begun to pur- chase those thousands of acres of forest, mountain, and stream which now be- longed to them, a speculative lumber- man with no capital, named O'Hara, built the white "house across the river on a few acres of inherited property, settled himself comfortably with his wife and child, and prepared to acquire all the timber in sight at a few dollars an acre .....on credit. For thus, thought he, is the beginning of all millionaires. So certain was O'Hara of ultimately cornering the standing timber that he took his time about it. never dreaming that a rival might disturb hrm in the wilderness of Sagamore County. He began in the woodland which he had inherited, which ran for a mile on either side of the river. This he leisure- ly cut, hired a few drivers, ran a few logs to Foxville, and made money. Now he was ready to extend business on a greater scale; but w...

HOME CIRCLE MAGAZINE SECTION quit Maine and re-establish his colony of fanatics on the O'Hara land, in the very center and heart of the wealthiest and most rigidly exclusive country club in America. That night the frightened Major tel- egraphed to Munnville, Maine, an offer to buy the O'Hara place at double its real value. The business-like message ended. "Wire reply at my expense." The next morning an incoherent reply came by wire, at the Major's expense, refusing to sell, and quoting several passages of Scripture at Western Union rates per word. The operator at the station counted the words carefully, and collected eight dollars and fourteen cents from the Major, whose fury deprived him of speech. Colonel Hyssop awaited his comrade at the club-house, nervously pacing the long veranda, gnawing his cigar. "Hello!" he called out, as Major Brent waddled up. "Have you bought the O'Hara place for us?" «_V The Major made no attempt to reply; he panted violently at the Colonel, then began...

The Vanished Millionaire |stood with my back to the fire, smoking and puzzling over it. It was worth all the headlines the newspapers had given it; there was no loophole to the mystery. Both sides of the Atlantic knew Silas J. Ford. He had established a business reputation in America that had made him a celebrity in England from the day he stepped off the liner. Once in London his syndicates and companies and consolidations had startled the slow- moving British mind. The commercial sky of the United Kingdom was over- shadowed by him and his schemes. The papery were full of praise and blame, of puffs and denunciations. He was a millioniare; he was on the verge of a smash that would paralyze the markets of the world. He was an abstainer, a drunkard, a gambler, a most religious man. He was a confirmed bachelor, a woman hater; his engagement was to be announce...

8 HOME CIRCLE MAGAZINE SECTION "His two partners in America; my- self and Mr. Harbord there." Peace turned to the young man with a smile and a polite bow. "Can you add any names to the list?" he asked. "No," said Harbord, staring at the detective with a puzzled look, as if try- ing to catch the drift of his questions. "Thank you," said the inspector; "and now, will you show me the place where this curious disappearance oc- curred?" We crossed the drive, where the snow lay torn and trampled by the carriages, and so to the white, even surface of the lawn. We soon struck the trail, a confused path beaten by many footprints. Peace stooped for a moment, and then turned to the secre- tary with an angry glance. " Were you with them?" he said. "Yes." ' v "Then why, in the name of com- mon sense, didn't you keep them off his tracks? You have simply tram- pled them out of exisetnce, between you." "We were in a hurry, inspector," said the secretary, meekly. "We didn't think about it." [To be c...

HOME CIRCLE MAGAZINE SECTION / old man; he supposes that all people know the game laws." Lansihg paused; she bent her head a trifle. After a silence he started on, saying, "Good-morning," very pleas- antly. "I wish you would sit down and talk to me," said the girl, without raising her head. Lansing was too astonished to reply; she turned her head partly towards him as though listening. Something in the girl's attitude arrested his atten- tion; he involuntarily dropped on one knee to see her face. It was in shadow. "I want to tell you who I am," she said, without looking at him. "I am Eily O'Hara." Lansing received the communication with perfect gravity. "Your father owned this land?" he asked. "Yes; I own it now. . .., I think." He was silent, curious, amused. "I think I do," she repeated; "I have never seen my father's will," "Doubtless your lawyer has it," he suggested." "No; I have it.

10 HOME CIRCLE MAGAZINE SECTION In the throbbing hush of the star- light a whippoorwill called three times; the breeze rose in the forest; a little wind came fragrantly, puff on puff, along the road, stirring the silvery dust. She laid one slim hand in Lansing's; steadily and noiselessly they traversed the dew-wet meadow, crossed the river by the second bridge, and so came to the dark club-house under the trees. There was nobody visible except the steward when they entered th% hall. "Two rooms and a bath, John," said Lansing, quietly; and followed the steward up the stairs, guiding his blind charge. The rooms were on the north angle; Lansing and Coursay inspected them carefully, gave the steward proper di- rection, and dismissed him. % "Get me a telegram blank," said Lan- sing. Coursay brought one. His cou- sin penciled a despatch, and the young mai; took it and left the room. The girl was sitting on the bed, silent, intent, following Lansing with her sightless eyes.

/ HOME CIRCLE MAGAZINE SECTION/' 11 The Paisley Shawl By Mildred Caroline Goodridge (Copyright 1917, by W. G. Chapman.) "Think hard, Eustace—try and re- member!" urged Wallace Brierly, but his invalid brother shook his head in a helpless, melancholy fashion. "It's no use, Wallace," he declared— "it's all a kind of blur, all except the quaint little story and a half house painted yellow, and the sweet-faced girl who was so kind and pitying, and the lady with the old-fashioned Paisley shawl. I can see it now—a white center and the figure in quaint curli- cues and saffron-colored fringe. Find that shawl, Wallace, and you find the papers." "If they have not been destroyed— yes," nodded the brother, with a seri- ous sigh. "We are an impetuous, poorly balanced family, Eustace. I lost my share of the fortune left to us by father in speculation. You wasted yours and you are now paying the penalty of your folly. I fancy we have both learned sense. We will have to begin business life all over...
