THE STORY OF NAT GOODWIX'S

Chauncey Short the "gilded fool''
of Henry Guy Carlton's drama "A
Gilded Fool," Nat Goodwin's memor
able success, is a typical young west
er, of good family and decent In
stincts, with too much money for his
own good. Nobody takes him seri
ously. He himself, In fact, regards
himself as a Joke and life as a laugh
ing matter by no means to be taken
seriously. His life runs along In this
way till he meets Margaret Ruthven,
the charming daughter of Matthew
Ruthven, a wealthy banker of the
old school of "city men."
Mr. Ruthven, a conservative, stiffly
starched man of affairs, regards with
contempt, not unmixed with disgust,
the useless, worthless, young Short,
who so far, has displayed not tne
sliKhtest Inclination to forsake his
clubs, cards and, coaching parties.
Margaret kuthven however has awak-
; ened ambition in Short's really vigor
i ous nature. He determines to "brace
up" and prove that when put to it he
is as good and brisk a business man
, as any of Mr. Kuthven's "old, crusted

unable to assemble the .loose ends of
his disorganized business. It is then
that the Glided Fool comes to the res
cue. With ready business acumen and
energy he routs Ruthven's foes and ex
poses those who have plotted against
the banker. Fighting with his back
to the wall, he displays the true mettle
of hlch he is made. Uy dint of his
ability alone the day Is saved and
