B.uns of hard luck were comon enough on Wall street, and he siuply seemed to have struck an unusual}j bad one; that was all. It was Belle who gave him the hint when they reef, "Are you having bad luck with your stocks?" she asked as they sat in the Hargrave conser;tory- '%Vho told you'?" he smiled.

By coppering my o'pera- tion I have won double what 1 have lost. Siegrist is honest; besides, he didn't know." Caverly sank back in his chair, lie had been happy in the thought that he was ruining Newton. Instead Newton had been informed, and he had really been the gainer. Caverly was an old man, and suddenly he felt very worn and feeble. "I think I'm getting out of the game." he said, wlh a sigh. '%Vhat is your price for thir, stock?" "Belle," answered Newton "She's worth every share and script in the market." For a moment Caverly hesitated.

It explained to him how it was that when he bought fer a rise his stocks fell. When he sold "short" in the expectation of prices being lower, they took an up- ward move. If it was Caverly behind the scheme, it meant a finish fight un- less he wanted to quit the street. Newton did not need to speculate. His income was ample, but he liked the excitement, and he had inherited his father's stubbornness. He would not be driven from the field. He took hls losses placidly and smiled at every fresh blow.
