blanche to do it—and gave you a hundred thousand to do so—for just two reasons.'

Billy looked at him with a blanched face. He waited silently, pitifully, during the remainder of Darrow's speech. It sounded to his nervous, guilty, burning ears, like the charge of the judge to a jury.

“My reasons were these," Darrow went on. “I wanted to test you. You didn't measure up in working for me, and you didn't prove up as Mary's husband. I wanted to know that you were good enough to be her husband-good enough for me to keep as a valuable assistant. I wanted to be sure that you weren't weak; but that you have enough brains to be corrected, to be set on the right path. These things may seem like a great many reasons; but they narrow down to two: your fitness for Mary and your fitness for me.

Billy still stared at him-his faith in himself seemed like a hopeless, dying thing.

Rut Darrow was talking again. Billy could not believe his ears. “You built this house-thinking it was for me. You built it for me as you have worked for me. I am giving you your reward. What you have put into this house is the same sort of value you have put into every job I gave you. When I told you to spend a hundred thousand on a house for me-I intended that the completed house should be yours-yours and Mary's—to live in." He paused abruptly, then continued. "I am aware of the commissions you received from Jacoby. They may compensate you for the deception--but I'm certain they won't. I told you to build the house of the finest materials—to spare no expense. In deceiving me you have deceived yourselfcheated your wife. If she's willing to take your handi

work—it is still yours. I wouldn't have it at any price -except the price at which I have bought it, the price of a man's worth. If Mary is willing to take you and live in this house, well and good. If she isn't, I'll take the hundred thousand her dead father left in my care, and give it to her in cash-provided she comes to live with Mrs. Darrow and me.”

Darrow paused again to glare at Billy. "If, on the other hand, this is an example to you—if it points the way to what you owe your wife-and what you owe me -you'll live in this house until it wears out—and your salary is—well it's what it is now until you've made good!”

Darrow turned and hurried down the steps. He entered the motor car and was gone.

Billy, dazed, conscious stricken, trembled on the cheap tiles of the veranda. He stooped and buried his face in his hands, leaning against the cheaper veranda rail.

Then Mary issued from some mysterious recess of the place. She went up behind her husband and put both arms about him. “Dear," she said softly, with a little laugh in her voice, "you've made a Hobson's choice, and in such a choice the best of it is always the worst."

“You mean you'll stick?” he asked incredulously.

“Certainly,” laughed Mary. “Jacoby, who was put up to his trickery deliberately, has been paid back what he gave you in commissions. I did it out of dad's estate. And it's up to you to pay back to me what you have in the bank, as a result of your foolishness."

There was a bit of a tear in her big cyes as she let him kiss her. In his heart was the sorrow of genuine repentance.


Every day, Every month, Every year. day's tasks are me. Let my judgment be well founded. Let me act quickly and with firmness. Let me deal justly, speak sparingly, clearly and truly. And if the trade goes against me, let me take my losses without complaint. Likewise, if the trade turns to my favor, let me not boast nor gloat over my profits but let me remember that rainy days may come and my profits wiped out by my expenses.

Let me avoid the trickster as I would the plague, but should I be forced into the trade with him, let me hold him fast to the agreements neither asking nor granting favors. Let me regard each transaction as I do an advertisement-a thing to be lived up to, fully, a bid for bigger business.

Let me be rewarded for my energy, my determination, my willingness to venture and my foresight. Let me be not afraid of competition. And when the Game is called off on account of The Darkness, let me have done my work in such a way that I shall not need to explain. This is my task to-day.
