that distinguished Max Hombach's
home aad place of business from the
other narrow-fronted tenement
houses in the row.
While Mr. Hombavh's ahop on the
ground floor was full of odds and
ends suggesting his occupation,
books, newspapers and certain of the
mngnzines indicated that the man
of the glue-pot and hammer was a
man of aonie mentnl culture.
Evidently the magnetic influence of
Mr. ftombach was considerable; mnny
were I he friends and admirers that
called to see him iu order to henr his
"views". on the Questions f tbe day.
In summer time the talk whs car
ried on at the front door steps; but
during the cold weather the little
meetings took plnce in the work
room, where Mr. Hombaeh's ringing
voic not 1111 frequently kept The ten
ants of the house, as well as those in
the houses adjoining, awake until
Of course Mr. Hombaeh was a nui
sance, but his neighbors bore with
him on account of the little boy
whom he had adopted. "Max must
have a good heart,'" they reasoned,
"to take in a strange child and be so
kind o him."
Little Randolph Hombaeh was the
waif of n steamboat disaster of some
ten years ago. Max, then about :(
years of age. had been one of the
passengers, lit the panic a baby was
handed to him to save. The mother
never reached shore. Failing to And
any relatives for the child, the man,
who had no relatives of his own, con
cluded -to ki-ep It.
At present Mr. Hombaeh was at
work mending a broken table. The
fierce frown on his forehead indicat
ed that he was also occupied with
some mental problem. When, pres
ently, he heard the sound of light
footsteps in the hall, the frown dis
appeared. The boy was coming home from
school. He Stopped a few moments
to talk to a woman in the entry;
then he came into the workroom with
his customary: "Hello, father," add
ing: "Miss Klizabeth Bradley wants
the loan of your chisel. May I take
it up U. her now?"
.Mr. Hombaeh started as if he had
been struck, his countenance chang
ing with the quickness of lightning.
Although generous to a fault, he had
drawn the line of generosity and
neighborliness at his tool box, the
contents of which were almost saered
in his eyes.
"Lend my chisel to a woman! A
woman! As if a woman could touch
a tool without spoiling it! My
gracious, Randolph, do you think 1
"Haven't you an old chisel some
where, father?" asked the boy. "I
don't like to tell Miss Klizabeth that
you wou't lend her a 4ool because
she's a woman. She can't help that."
Mr. Hombaeh threw back hi bushy
1iead, while a smile thai he tried to
hide shot out of his eyes. Nervous
and tempest nous in manner himself,
of all things he admired calmness In
others, Randolph's tjulet dignity quite
"The boy is a diplomat." he thought
to himself. "J'hat a cool head! Ah,
some day he will sit with the grea
mm of the world. Well, I guess you
may take that chisel to Miss Brad
ley," he Bald, presently, and began to
Miss Elizabeth Ilradle.y, who was a
dressmaker in a small way, lived in
the back wing of the second floor of
the house. She might have ben 30
or 35. She did not look old, but was
still not what would be called
young lady." Randolph felt that he
would not have liked her so well If
that title had titled her exactly.
"Thank yon." she said, admitting
tbe little llisiuarck inio her apart
ment. Sh oa. trying with SOBXf ill
assorted t'.-ols to make a eg bines' asjl
of u grocery box. The boy looked on
the work with interest, and the two
Perhaps few things in Miss Urad
ley's monotonous life gave her so
much pleasure as listening to Ran
dolph's talk about the discussions
that were carried oa algbtly down
stairs. Me was stiM so assail aad
childish-looking that the fluent
phrase he repeated so glibly savored
to her of "cuteneas." She liked to
"draw him out" as she said, and fre
quently asked what "pa" thought
about this or that.
"Well. I guess your pa's got lots of
nice sensible ideas." she remarked as
a rejoinder to Randolph's elucidation
ot what his father believed in regard
to "territorial expansion."
Miss Elisabeth herself did not
know what the term meant, but she
had some excellent ideas about mak
ing gingerbread. She had a fragrant
loaf of It on hand, and she stopped
working to cut a large slice, which
ahe brought to Randolph on one ol
her prettiest china plates.
The thought returned to the boy
mind that Miss Klinbeth was very
much nicer than any younger lady.
One could be quite comfortable be
side her; she had no "airs;" she
wasn't "giddy;" she didn't tease and
make fun of hoys as young girls did.
1 If fate had provided him with a moth
er instead of a father, he felt he
would have liked a mother like Miss
Here, however, the object of his
"I doubt I'll have to trouble you
again. Randolph," she said. "Please
take the chisel back to your pa with
my compliments, and bring me up a
little saw. Mine-is so big and clumsy
that I can't manage it."
"Certainly. Miss KUpbeth, I'll ask
him," responded Randolph, with some
misgivings as to what would be the
outcome of this second appeal for the
loan of a tool, a
It did not promise well for the suo
ccss of his errand that, going down
stairs, he heard his father nrguing
vehemently with a man in the work
shop. He waited outside until the
man had gone. Hut. Mr. Hombaeh,
pursuing u habit he sometimes in
dulged in, continued to demolish the
argument of his vanished opponent.
"You arc wrong," he vociferated;
"the present need of the country"
"Father," Interrupted a elenr. be
seeching voice, "Miss Elizabeth Hrad-ley-"
Rut Mr. Hombaeh was too deeply
stirred to heed or even to notice the
boy. "Your argument is based on an
exploded theory! You don't know "
Itnndolph was obliged to wait until
the argument was concluded. Then
he said, speaking very earnestly, iu
his clear, boyish tones:
"Miss Elizabeth thanks you for the
chisel, father. Here it is. See, it
isn't spoiled. She's a very nice, care
ful lady, Miss Elizabeth is. She needs
a little sow very badly; hers is an
old, rusty one, ami it won't work."
"What! What's that!" exclaimed
Mr. Hombaeh, raising his black brows
with a fresh start of horror. "Does
the woman want a saw now? I was
a fool a fool! 1 might have known
I was only making trouble for my
self; Hsh!" His disgust turned to
severe irony. "Maybe the woman
would like the tool box!"
"Miss Klizabeth is going to give me
a slip off her pink geranium," said
Mr. Horbbach grunted unwillingly,
and the frown deepened between bis
'"Will you not lend the saw, fa
ther?" pleaded the boy.
"Xo,"..said Mr. Hainbach.
The tool box stood on the work
bench in sight of both. On top was
just such a saw as Miss Bradley
wanted. Randolph looked at the nar
row, gleaming blade anxiously, then
at its father. "How is Miss Kliza
beth to finish her Work?" lie asked.
Mr. Hombaeh shook his bushy hair
impatiently. "I cannot tend tools!
No, no! The wointin has no sense!
My tool are my friends! Who ever
heard of lending a friend?"
Randolph's countenance fell; but In
a moment he brightened with a new
"O, fsther." he gasped out with
breathless eagerness to test the
availability of his iden. "couldn't you
take the saw upstairs yourself and
do the work for Ma Kllnbelh -for
the sake of the saw, you know?"-
Mr. Hoiiibnch's brows went up
again, and Ik- ran his fingers through
bis thick, upstanding hair as if ihe
ides Wsh difficult of comprehension.
"Sure enough. Randolph." he said in
sn altered tone, his eosnbatlva spirit
all gone. "How absurd of me not lo
have thought of that it first. es,
yes, of course, that is Ihe only sensi
ble thing to do, and It will take only
a few moments."
To BiOisi If he continued as he went
up.taiis with l"s fOOl I"'- "That lit

He'll miiUe his mart hj the world."
Mis' Kllrabeth Bradley did noi ask
for the loan of soy more tools. As
the Yeek passed Randolph noticed
