He was a llttlo fellow and ho was an
sryj but ho was a eontloman. too. and.
seeing that Itodncy Mcrrlam was real
ly surprised, ho rolentcd toward the
old soldier, who had thrust his hands
Into tho sldo pockets of his coat, look
ing as foolish ns It Is posstblo for ft
flno old gcntloman to look.
'Captain I'ollook." ho blurted out,
suddenly, "I haven't a doubt that you
aro tolling tho truth. I don't caro whose
son you are, I like you anyhow!" And
then snatchlmt his hands from his
pockets ho hold thorn out to I'ollook,
Jomandlng with n gruff klndnoss, "Will
lou shako hands with mo?"
"Certainly. Mr. Mcrrlam."
A few hours later tho Usual crowd
lounged In tho smoking-room of tho
Tlppeeanoo Club. Pollock had Just fin
Ishcd telling a story when Itodncy Mer
rlam anuearcd In the doorway. The
old gentleman advanced upon tho llttlo
group, roturnlng their greetings and
thanking them all for tho proffer of
acnllemen," ho said, standing by
his chair, "I wish to make you an ex

misunderstanding, duo wholly to my

And tho next day, In tho samo spirit
of scrupulous honor, Ilodnny Mcrrlam
sought his nieces at Tho lleoohos unil

This was Ilalcomb'n happy Idea of
minimizing tho value of his gift. Ho
was rcllovcd to find that Pollock was
not there, nnd as It was past tho usual

not likely to nppear. Ever slnco tho

Mr. Dameron camo out nnd shook
hands with tho young men, address

called upon him repeatedly In rcforonco
to tho purchaso of tho trnct of land

Ing how ho could communicate with tho

and this call gavo him an opportunity,
