yiillingfonl had chuckled at first, but
oy he was thoughtful.
M. Perlgord was deeply regretful that
tho. beautiful Miss Warden's lavender
creation had been so extensively copied.
"It Is because mademoiselle- Is so strlk
tag-so attractive." ho suavely ex
plained. "Tboso clever American man

"So that's tho way It's done." mused
Blackle. "What do you think of that
Jor pure gall. Jim?"
Jim Walllngford's big shoulders heav
ed. "It sounds like the explanation for
a black eye." he chuckled.
"Ono becomes clever In America,"
boasted Perlgord, with a self satisfied
smile, after he had agreed to refund
the price of- the dress. "I have learned
the llttlo trick to make money. Now I
learn the little trick to Invest with rap
idncss. With 554.000 to start vollat"
"Fifty-four thousand!" responded
Blackle, glancing at J. Kufus.
Walllngford at the window suddenly
wheeled and came back looking at his
watch. "I'm afraid 1 -can't wait until
you settle with M. Perlgord," he stated.
"What's your hurry, Jim," protested
Blackle. "It won't take long. When
people pass money they part."
"I have to keep my eye on a certain
rapid Investment," said Walllngford
Impressively. "I'll sco you tomorrow

"Oh. give It to a newsboy," laughed
Blackle. with a nonchalant wave of
"I don't care what you do with It,"
responded Walllngford gravely., pro
ducing a big red pocketbook. "My
business Is to pay you this $1,000 In
return for the $150 you Invested with
me yesterday." and Into the hands of
the astonished Blackle be counted a
J500 bill and five $100 bills.
"How much will you Invest tomor
The wad," Blackle said promptly,
and started to band back the money.
"You know better than that.". Wal
llngford reprovingly reminded blm. "A
hundred and Ofty is the limit Jn this

"Can't you let me go In for two hun

sulted n red memorandum book. "You
can only have a hundred today."
"All right." ngrred Rlnckte reluctant

handed It over .
"CikhI day." said Wnlllngford. taking
M. Perlgord looked after him In stun

"Yes, confound blm." grumbled Black
le? "He's sort! at me uud won't let me
in. on his big game."
?Blg!" repeated Perlgord In astonish
ment, looking greedily at the money In
Plackie's hand. "Do you call this
small?" . ,
"It's a tin horn proposition," scorned
SBut how does ho innko It?"'
"Walllngford won't tell." Blackle
lialf whimperingly to u tided. "He is one
of our most clever Americans, No
body knows bow much mouey he Is
worth. Nobody knows how much I am
worth. I don't know myself.V
"And did Mr. Walllngford make you
all your money?"
"Every last $1,000,000," asserted
"Ah!" breathed M. Perlgord In wor
ship. "I, also, would become rich
qujck; So rich that I also could say of
$1,000, 'Give the tin horn to the news
boy,' M. Daw, would you truly give
that much money to a newsboy, or
was it what ypu clover Americans call
Blackle's eyes widened in astonish
ment that such a -question should bo
asked. "I'd give it to anybody," bo
stated, with a flash of Inspiration.
"Wor.ld you like to havo it?"
"Nino hundred dollars!" gasped M.
Perlgord in error.
"la it $000? Why, so it K" counted
Blackle negligently. "Here, Perlgord,
take it and buy yourself a dinner,"
and, thrusting the bills into tho hands
of tbo dumfounded Perlgord, he stalk
ed out of tho place.
"I forgot to get Miss Warden's
check," explained Blackle the next day,
walk'ing into M. Pcrlgord's with u
saxaphono.case in his band.
"It is ready, .mopsleur," cordially
stated i tho importer, s greeting Blackle
witltho enthusiasm of an old friend,

with curiosity to know how much ho

"Oh." returned Blackle, with n bored
expression. "I don'f. know yet. As n
matter of fact. I hadn't thought of In
quiring about It. Ho probably has only
six or eight hundred dollars for We.
I'll Just let It go."
"Ah, monsieur," protested Perlgord,
"even If It Is only a little mouey like

'Very well." agreed ntiekje. ynwn

"I shall be transported!" exclaimed
M. Pcrlgonl In a flutter of delight this
being the boon for which he had been
eager to ask.
Ho ran. He brought bis silk hat lie
brought his gray gloves. He brought
his llttlo cane. He brushed his kinky
beard. He tripped down the stairs two
steps ahead of Blncklo Daw. Only
when they reached the office did he
hang back timidly.

the morning on tho job.
Inside was a smalt anteroom. In
which there sat waiting a totally bald
headed man and a ro"nn with a bushy
beard and a largo red necked man with
a mustache, one etui of which had been
chewed to a tassel. A spider legged
boy guarding the entrance to the door
of the private ofllce greeted Blackle
with n nod and turned an unfriendly
stare on M. Perlgord. Beyond tho glass
partition could be heard tho loud and
angry voice of that iecr!ess Investor, J.
"No, Mr. Toilet you can't get on the

"Please don't say that" pleaded the
frightened Mr. Toilet "J'nf sorry."
"You're too late." sternly returned
Wnltlngfordl "Here's your $275 for to

There was the sound of 'the hasty
scraping of n chair. "Your account I

There were other sounds. The door
opened suddenly and out shot a
chunky young man who wore thick
spectacles. M. Perlgord noted that b

"Go mi out. yu!" ordered the spider

Mr. Po'Iet walked slowly out of tho
room. The waiting Investors looked
nervous and apprehensive. A little bell
rang 'hnrp' j. The spider legged boy
darted Into Walllngford's room. H
bounced out again In n minute.
"W. O. Jones." he announced.
The totally bald headed wan sham

"Hello. Onion Jones!" greeted Wal
llngford suavely. "I have 51.100 for
you. That leaves you $1,000 clear
profit. Pretty good, eh?"
Pcrlgord's eyes glistened.
"Npt the bqst day we've had. but I'm
Katlslled." laughed Jones. "I benr you're
going to start a new pool, Mr. Wnlllng

"Any chance of my getting a sharo

"All right." agreed Jones. "I'm
tickled with anything you do. now

"One hundred." stated Walllngford.
"Just give me that hundred dollar bill."
"There you are." returned Sir, Jone
contentedly. "Good day, Mr. Wnlllng
fonl." The bell rang. Tbo spider legged boy
darted in. Mr. Jones shambled out with
his hand full of money.
Andro Pcrlgord's breath came quickly.
"W. W. Williams." sang tho boy.
The full bearded man went in.
"Good afternoon, Chinchilla," hailed
Walllngford cheerily. "You got In' for a
hundred and fifty, didn't you? Well,
here's $1,050. I'll havo to cut you down
to u hundred today'
"Sony, sir." said Williams. "By the
way, is Pollet dropped from tho pool?"
"Yes," snapped Wnlllngford.
"I'd liko to take up his share,"
"No," snapped Walllngford.
"Just as you say," hastily responded
Cblnchllln Williams. "Lord, I don't
want you to get soro nt mo too,"
"I guess I am a llttlo grouchy," con
fessed Walllngford, "but every timo I

Pcrlgonl was dreaming vast drenms.
"Mr. Daw," announced the boy.
Tho autocratic Mr. Wnlllngrord
frowned when he saw tho stronger
with Blackle Daw. but M. Pcrlgonl
did not see the frown. Ills nstounded
eyes were glued on tho novel decora

money stneks of ftvo dollar bills, of
tens twenties, flftlcs, hundreds, five
hundreds and thousauds! There were
packages of money still unopened, and
fnun a slightly projecting drawer
peeped other money.
"Anybody else out there, Jesse
Raines?" yelled Walllngfonl.
"No. sir." replied the boy.
"Then lock tho door." ordered Wnb
lincford. "Sir. Daw. hero's your $1.-

"No.- thanks," drawled Blackle. "I
don't like odd chnnge. Carry It your

should I fuss with a twenty-five dollar
share? Look at what I havo left" And
with a negligent sweep of bis hand he
Indicated the Utter of money.
M. Perlgord bad been trying to speak,
but be had been too excited.
"If It will be any favor to monsieur
I will take It" ho offered. "Me. Andre
"1 don't like to let strangers In." hes
itated Walllngford, with a frown, "but
I think I Bbnll let Mr. Pcrlgonl in on

closes next week." And Wnlllngford
smiled quizzically as be turned away,
"I am all gratitude!" fervently ex
claimed M. Perlgord, whipping out his
pocketbook nnd planking down his $25
lu u hurry, lest Walllngford should
change his mind.
"You're on." said Walllngford. toss
ing tho money carelessly on to the dek
with the other greenbacks.
M. Pcrlsord smiled and smiled. "How
much shall 1 receive for my $25?" he
wanted to know.
"I guarantee nothing," returned Wnl
llngfonl, casting ou him n cold look. "I
imy not make you over n hundred dol
lars. I may even lose your money."
Both Blackle and 51. Perlgord laugh
ed nt that absurd proposition.
Again M. Perlgord ventured a ques
tion. "If I may Intrude upon mon
sieur's courtesy, how docs ho make
such enormous profits?"
"I never tell," declared Walllngford.
"Viola!" accepted Perlgord. "M. Wal
llngford, I thank you. M. Daw. I
thank you also. Shall I conic over to
morrow to get my money r
"No. don't bother me. I'll drop In nnd
band It to you." stated Walllngford
carelessly. "Good day. gentlemen."
They filed out of the ofllce. and Wal
llngford called Blackle back, and M.
rerigord. listening Intently, heard Wnl
"Your friend Pcrlgonl Is very agree
able. He Is generous. He looks trust
ing." Andro Pcrlgord's henrt was glad.
What he did not bear Wnlllngford say
"Double right back, Blackle, nnd help
mo tako care of this real coin. We'll
leave, tho phony stuff here, but I'm
nervous since I had Onion Jones nud
Chinchilla Williams nnd big Tim Mea-1
zeu In this room."
At last Andro Perlgord wns a happy
man. - no was profiting by American
cleverness, and ho had tho most clever
man In America ns his Investing agent.
On tho first day Wnlllngford handed
him $200 for bis $25. On tho second
day Walllngford handed him $300 for
