Three days later Hawkins walked into Mr. Hildreth's ottieo with much the air of a man going to have all his teeth pnlleil The older lawyer g rid e d him cheerily enough, bnt to Hawkins’ car there was an under note o f triumph. Iu truth, Hawkins hail in the last two days suffered a moral shock that hail left him a prey to emotional neuralgia. What he misread as elation was really but a sort of w histling to keep the courage up. Mr. Hildreth knew w ell whose bnsi ness alone could bring Hawkins to hi,s office and hail got some hint o f thesyu- ilicate’sovertun*.

W ell as he loved a legal battle, Mr. Hildreth j had never Iss-n able to quite sink the man in the lawyer. Next to Major Over- toil himself he would feel the sting of the claim ’s oversetting, which, as he had all along felt, ouly a mirncle could prevent.
