"Perhaps you can," admitted Hews,
"but you're not going to be such a

you do the right thing by me. the
thing's dead and buried so far as I'm ,
"What Is your price?" demanded
Wilfrid, apparently getting down to
Reger Hews drew a long breath and
moistened his lips nervous y. It was '
a crucial moment.
"Now you're talkin'." he began. ”1 i
won't be too hard on you. All the
same. I want a fair rake-off Suppose
we say IS.OOd.OOO. Cash, mind’ You'll
never miss it. and that'll about set
me up for life.”
"And supposing that I close with
this very liberal off.-r of yours, what
assurance have I that in the near fu
ture you will not be at my heels again
with a similar demand? I've always
heard that the way of the transgres .
sor who pays hush-money is hard."
"I'll put all the proofs in your hands
and you can destroy 'em," exclaimed
Hews eagerly That five millions be- j
gan to take tangible shape.
"What is the nature of these so-
Roger considered a moment, then:
"Mostly documents—copies of mar- 1
riage and death certificates, and atfl
davits of various persons bearin' on '
the case. Of course, my story comes
in an' makes the hull thing plain; but j
1 shall be mum if you come to terms." j
"1 see." said Stennis, appearing to
fall in with Roger's proposition. "But
suppose you go a little further and
outline the situation for me, Mr Hews.
You need not mention names or dates
unless you choose. I may as well tell
you plainly I am not going Into this
thing with my eyes shut. I must know
how the cast- stands."
"Well. I guess that's only fair.
Here's the story in a nutshell: Nearly
30 years ago. when y'r uncle was a
man of 45. he married a girl much
younger'n himself. By all I can make 1

her. and enlisted. The wife thought :
“Tou’ll get the proofs fast enough
when I'm ready to give 'em out. What
I want to know first is, are y’ open to
make a deal?”
“Explain yourself." said Wilfrid with
"I say y're a fraud: that y're not the
true heir; that a word from me'U turn

how much is it wuth to hush the hull
thing and go on as y're been doing?"
"You must be a little more explicit,
Mr. Hews,” said Wifrid gently, upon
svhom the conviction was forcing itself
that he had to deal with a maniac
vhotn It were best to humor. "You .
cannot expect me to make any ar
rangement—a deal, you call it—in the
dark. I must first know what it is all
But the next words of Roger Hews
dispelled this idea. The situation was
actually serious, as was perhaps best
indicated by the savagely insolent
manner of the man.
"I’ve got evidence t’ show—legal ev
idence. mind y"—that Andy Meleen
left a daughter, born in lawful wed
lock. although he didn't suspect It
■when he made his will. That girl's
alive yet. Nobody knows it now but
me, and I can perdooce her any min
ute. You’ve got sense enough to see
that in any court of equity this knocks
you out completely.
If only Andy'd

It at all. These three years past
you've been spending her money—
money belonging to Andy Meleen's or
"Go on." said Wilfrid, looking Hews
squarely in the eye as the latter
paused to note the effect of this knock
“As I was sayin', not a soul knows
this but me. How I know it I b my |
business. I do know it, an' I c'n prove
It. The girl doesn't dream of it. neith- |
er does her—her folks. Now, then,
here you stand: You're fond of soft
living—I can see that; you've got in
with the smart set, you're engaged to
be married to one of ’em. and you’re
personally liable to Andy Meleen's es
tate for every dollar you've spent of
hlB money. That’s so. ain't it?”
Wilfrid nodded assent, merely for 1
argument's sake, his eyes still glued
to the face of his tormentor.
“Then I ask you, as man to man: |
What's it worth to you to purchase
"Meaning what is it worth to me to ¡
buy your silence?" inquired Stennis :
"That's what I mean, exactly!"
ejaculated Hews with cool effrontery. '
Stennis studied the man's face, with I
Its assumption of easy swagger and
a gleam in the eyes of deadly hatred
and malice. Then he spoke in low '
and level tones:
"Before we go any further, Mr. ’
Hews, let me have the satisfaction of .
telling you to your face that you are
an Infernal scoundrel!”
"I’ve been told that before in my
business,” retorted Hews, with a cal
lous laugh. "It don't hurt any. The
question is, Are you in on this deal? '
There's others'll pay for the stuff if
"That’s my business; there's no
need for you to know—leastways not
"And Ijer name?”
“That's another secret,” laughed
Hews, with a cunning wink.
"We’ll see about that," commented
Wilfrid significantly. "If what you
■ay be true, I am probably her near-
•st relative. Besides, you idiot, don't,

he'd deserted her. so. havin' to shift
for herself, she left the place where
she was known, went to another town 1
some miles away, dropped her married
name, resoomed her maiden name,
and passed herself off as a widder. In
due course a daughter was born, and
about the same time the news come
to her that she really was a widow,
Andy Meleen being reported as killed
in battle. So bein', as she supposed,
legally free, she married again, and
died a year later, a second Infant, also
a girl, dyfh’ with her. Your uncle
heard of this latter event and thought
it was his child that died. But this
wasn't so. The Meleen girl thrived
and grew up under the care of her
stepfather, who never knew that his
marriage to her mother was illegal,
Andy bein' alive all the time.”
During this interesting recital some
things became clear to Stennis.
"Presumably you found out all this
when, as you told me. you were sent
east after my uncle's death?"
"Some of it—not all,” admitted
Hews with cheerful candor.
"Why did not you acquaint the law
yers with the true state of affairs?”
"Well, you see,” replied Hews, with
another knowing wink, "at that time 1
only suspicloned certain things. I
meant to work up the case later. If
the fact turned out to be as I thought,
it looked as though a good thing might
be made out of it."
"Meaning to turn it to account with
me afterwards?" inquired Stennis.
“Sure!" was the unabashed answer,
now that his unsuspected plot to mar
ry Eunice had Ignominiously failed.
Silence ensued, both men being
busy with their thoughts; Hews looked ,
for a quick and easy capitulation. At
length Wilfrid spoke again:
“How much time will you allow me
to consider this proposal of yours?"
he Inquired composedly.
"Time? Why, how much time do y’
want? Not a day, not an hour! It's I
take It or leave it, now or never!”
"I rather think I'll leave It, Mr.
Hews," drawled Wilfrid, a half-smile
lifting one corner of his tawny mus
"You'll never do It!" exclaimed the
astounded and mortified Hews.
“Won't I?” queried Stennis. "You
have made one grand mistake, Mr.
Hews: You took me for as big a rogue
as yourself! A fool I may be, but not
that! Why, you despicable villain, do
you imagine I would conspire with
such a rat as you to defraud a woman,
a motherless girl, and she my own
flesh and blood?”
The tempter stared at the tempted
in blank dismay. That any one with a
