Like some knight errant gaily and hopefully entering the lists to battle for some great cause, Roy Wilder repaired to the distant metropolis.

Roy felt the meanness nnd disloyalty to his true soul principles every time he slurred rustic life, for it was because of his familiarity with coun try character tint he was engaged. His publishers required satire, ridi cule. He was obliged to deride the simplicity of the announcement that "Si Green was painting his front fence," or that "Our pastor had a rousing donation party last week." In contradiction with this, he was compelled to gild the false unnatural glamour ot the white ways. The artificial glare of the bright lights had dazzled him at tlw first.

Soon afterwards the secret leaked out and scarcely a year has passed since that time that someone has not tried to uncover this vast wealth. As late as 1023 a party of r.ritish scientists set out for that purpose, but If they or anyone else have been successful, the world is yet to hear of it. The treasure which the famous Captain Kidd Is supposed to have buried somewhere along the New England coast is nearly as famous and us much sought titer us the Cocos island wealth. It Is true that he did bury a part of his loot on Gardiner's island, o(T Montank point on Island, N. Y., when he returned from his trip a pirating, but that was recovered soon after his arrest.

And Lesbia? Several times Roy heard of her, but did not seek to m.vt her. In some way some college friends had secured for her an entree as a singer Into the higher circles of society. Lesbia had a beautiful voice. Her ambition was to become an opera singer. Then, when the social season was over, Roy heard nothing of her.. He had about given up his city dream. He had written wearily, longingly to good old Uncle James. A very little encouragement nnd Roy was ready to go back to Upton ami begin IITc all over again. Lismond went away on a commission to write up a trip around the world with some state Improvement committee and Roy was lonely and discouraged. Tln-- came dark days no work and no prospects.
