him a check. At the house he
meets the girl who had given
him the dollar, and learns she Is
Kathleen Otis. She recognizes him.
Ashamed, he tears up the check
and escapes, but Is arrested. Esther
visits FItzhugh. In jail and makes
arrangements for procuring legal
advice. His trial Is speedily com
pleted and he Is found Insane and
committed to an asylum, from
which he easily makes his escape.
Kltzhugh takes refuge In Chicago,
with Esther, who has become In
fatuated with him. With the
ithought of Kathleen In his mind,
his one Idea is to become rich and
powerful, and win Kathleen. While
hiding In Esther's house he grows
a beard, which effectually changes
his appearance. In a fight vytth

FItzhugh worsts him, leaving him
unconscious, and escapes. Secur

that Nlkolay has been found dead
In Esther's house, and In a letter
to him she admits the killing, tell
ing him she did It for his sake and
that she has gone away. He sees
Kathleen from a distance, and is
strengthened in his determination
to win her.
FItzhugh began to fret and fume at
his Irksome employment. He was
coining to believe he had made a nils
take In adopting such slow meuns to
an eagerly desired end, when, in the
fifth week, something occurred that
dispelled his growing pessimism. It
was a warm Suturduy night, and
when he came from the broiling
kitchen with his coat under his arm,
dripping with perspiration, his em
ployer met him and handed him eight
dollars, five of which he promptly
placed between the leaves of his sav
ings bankbook, which now showed a
balance of twenty dollars.
As he nodded good-nlglit to his em
ployer he noticed a hatchet-faced man.
In a checker-board suit on one of tho
lunch-counter stools. Before FItzhugh
reached Van Buren street this man
confronted him and, smiling as cor
dially as his hard face would permit,
"How much does the Greek pay
"According to my desert, my solicit
ous friend. I draw the munificent sal
ary of eight dollurs each week."
The questioner pushed back his hot
and chewed his cigar. And his head
bobbed up and down as he scanned the
dishwasher from top to toe.
"I s'pose you'll do," he finally de
cided. "Come 'long to the next block.
Got some'in I want to show you."
lie led the way up State street, and
near Jackson boulevard stopped be
fore a gold-and-whlte restaurant, glit
tering with electric lights, brand new
and spick and span. Across the plate
gluss window In letters three feet high
was the name, "Max's."
"See that? That's me. I'm Max."
He tapped his chest proudly. "You've
got to make that name famous. Un
derstand me? Famous I Cornel Come

They went In, and Mr, Max outlined
his plan. Briefly, it was this: FItz
hugh, after a visit to a barber, was to
apparel himself in distinguished garb,
and with an aristocratic demeanor,
was to promenade Slate street for five
hours dally. Painted In white letters
on the back of his frock-coat would
be the name "MAX'S."
"Um-lmm," observed FItzhugh,
drawing reflectively on his cigar. "How
much do I get for this?"
"Well, let me see sny fifteen a
week. How's that strike you?"
"Not favorably. Make it thirty and
the deal's closed." And even as he
spoke FItzhugh was wondering If his
beard sufficiently disguised hlra. He
decided It did. Besides, there were
the theatrical possibilities of the
thing, and this appealed strongly to
his love for make-believe.
After some further bargaining it was
greed he was to receive twenty dollars
the first week and, If employed longer,
thirty dollars each for all subsequent
. He reported for work Monday morn
ing. Accompanied by Max, he went
to a barber's shop and afterward to a
clothing establishment where ready
made apparel of the better class was
sold. About eleven o'clock he stepped
from the restaurant, paused In the ves
tibule, took a pair of new chamois
gloves from a pocket and began draw
ing them on. When he stepped out
Into the morning crowd and strolled
up State street, swinging a gold
headed cane, his glistening hat tower
ing high above the mass of heads, he
started a furore fur greater than his
sanguine employer expected.
When lie reached Adams street
there was In his wake a Jostling num
ber of more curious ones, anxious to
keep him In sight, yet louth to betray
their eagerness. He stopped at the
corner, mounted a metal refuse box
near the curb and, removing his ilk
hat with a sweeping gesture, shielded
his eyes with tils hand and stared
straight Into the zenith. A minute or
more be renin Ined thus, the human
Jam thickening about him with every
second. The sidewalk became speedily
choked. A pollcemun shoved his way
through the congestion, reached up,
Jubbed his knuckles In Fltzhugh's side.
"Come out of it, professor," advised
he. "It's the closed seuson for star

down from his pedestal, nodded silent
ly to the officer, and with the pomp
and dignity of a lord mayor, retraced
his steps down the street, the crowd

forth and the success of the morning

at Monroe street for his skyward
gaze. Again the crowd surged about
him, and again his poise was Jarred by
a heavy hand. Instead of a police
man, however, he turned to find a man
of his own lieignt, but of larger bulk,
regarding him with favor rather than
of ill-will. He was fashionably at
tired and there seemed to envelop him
an atmosphere of Cash.
The stranger placed his hand on
Fltzhugh's shoulder and lowered his
voice to a whisper. "I've something
for you, friend, that'll make life worth
Fitzbugh whispered back : "Lead on,
major. I'll follow straight"
In a little while they were seated In
a cool place, where large fans whirred
softly overhead und where dark bot
tles and tall glasses were placed be
fore them. The breezy one flipped a
card across the table, with the cryptic

and then briefly Intimated:
"And I'm FItzhugh."
"Greetings, Fitz i Greetings and salu
tations! What does this sandwich
man stunt bring you In?"
"Such Impertinence, Quigg, merits a
reprimand, but I'll give you a truthful
answer: thirty dollars a week. Com
mencing next week."
Mr. Quigg placed his glass on the
table with elaborate precision. His
puffy eyes narrowed.
"Fitz," said he, "I'm going to take a
chance. I've watched you twice today,
and I thiuk I've found the man I want.
I'm no bad Judge of a man, either.1'
He produced a fat morocco wallet and
slipped therefrom a" treasury note
which he passed across the table.
"There's your first week's salary in ad
vance. When you're ready for work I
FItzhugh glanced at the bill, and
saw it was of a hundred-dollar denom
ination. He rested both arms on the
table and, leaning across, looked his
vis-a-vis steadily in the eye.
"Would you mind telling me," he In
quired pointedly, "what sort of a game
you're playing?" ,
Quigg chuckled and raised a fat,
gloved hand in protest "I beg to be
excused until I've seen my attorney.
Here, boy I" A waiter came hurrying.
"Get me a taxi. I've twenty minutes to
spare. We'll hustle over to my tailor
That's a bum outfit you're wearing."
FItzhugh, In accordance with prior
arrangement, reported to his new em
ployer at ulne-thlrty Wednesday morn
ing. He had given up his room In
Illinois street, and had taken- an un
pretentious apartment in a pretentious
hotel farther north.
His correct morning attire, fuult

Messenger boys scuttled to and fro
across, the floor, clutching at their
caps, slapping their books shut, enter
ing and leaving some inner office
whence Issued the clickety-cllck-cllck
of a battery of typewriters.
And in all this feverish animation
there was something vaguely artificial
too subtle for the casual onlooker,
perhaps, but there nevertheless.
As FItzhugh entered, casting a bored
glance around the place, he was met
by a uniformed negro, who said: "Mr.
Quigg says tell you please, suh, step
Inter his private office at once, suh."
The preceding night, in Quigg's
rooms In a hotel, FItzhugh had been
thoroughly apprised of the nature of
his post There had even been "re
hearsals." He was therefore not un
prepared for what followed his en
