"I have seen this In Nagasaki." "I modeled It on a part of the gar dena In 'The Teahouse of the Inde scribable Butterflies' In Nagasaki, with a suggestion, here and there, from the Fukawaga garden." Neeland Barnes knew nothing about Japanese gardens, but the thing took his fancy amazingly.

"I have never met any of you personally before, although I have heard Mr. Bradney lecture and have seen some of Mr. Malet's work. I also was thrilled many years ago by Mr Barnes' horsemanship." "Very handsome of you to say so," said Neeland Barnes. "I flatter myself I could ride In those days." "What I am going to say may seem nothing whatever to do with me at first It may' even be that you will consider me guilty of some breach of good form when I mention certain matters In the past life of all three of you. If so, I beg you to believe I shall say nothing Idly. I have a definite plan In asking you to meet, and I must tell my story In my own way.'' I'eter Milman looked from one to the other of them a little anxiously. He was meticulous In matters of personal conduct, and he feared he might be exceeding his rights. "So far as I am concerned," said Fleming Bradney, "you have nothing to fear. I have done nothing to be ashamed of, although I cannot expect the world to believe that" "My reputation," said Malet, "Is a trifle besmirched, but I have long since ceased applying whitewash. Juvenal says that to be poor Is to be ridiculous. Well, Mr. Milman, I can plead guilty to that count" I'eter Milman turned courteously to the third guest "Don't mind me," said Barnes genially. "I am used to It. If you had had all the d n silly relations Pve had, you'd have no sensitive spots left. I have been worthless since birth." He chuckled. "But I've had , a d n good run for my money, even If this Juvenal person has my number up and the race lost. Rub It In, if It helps you. My wool Is black, and I know It" "I'm afraid you don't exactly understand." Peter Milman smiled. "I am neither schoolmaster nor reproving relative. I merely wish to ask your pardon If I talk of things In your lives that may stir up unhappy memories." Floyd thought of his lonely room, his uncongenial work, and looked about him and sighed. He liked this unknown Peter Milman, with his charming manner and a dignity that had something forgotten and Victorian about it. Life had not given Malet what It had promised, and the disappointment had embittered htm; but there was nothing disgraceful In what had brought him low. "Go ahead, Mr. Milman," he said. You can talk for days If you like." "Let me begin with Mr. Fleming Bradney," said Milman. "I have said I once heard him lecture. It was because I read an article of his In the North American Review on What I read and afterward heard him say stirred up my Imagination powerfully, and I understood that a man may have a passion for knowledge which Is a burning hunger." Fleming Bradney nodded his head. "Yes," he commented, "that's a good description of It. It is a passion that recognizes no limits of time or labor expended. It Is a passion that has knowledge as Its goal and not fame or money. Yes, I had it once." "The circumstances which led Mr. and Bradney to give up his drop out of his world have never been told in their entirety," Peter Milman said, after a pause. "I am going to tell you now. I may say that up to the moment of his retirement we have never had a physicist who gave such promise as he. It is to the honor of a great university In this state that he was elected professor of etherlc physics and asked to erect the most superb laboratory for his work that could be built. It was to exceed In equipment that of Cambridge university. He was allowed to design It. I think such a chance has rarely been given to one so young." Bradney nodded his head. "It was the greatest opportunity ever offered a man." "And he lost It," Mllman's quiet, precise voice went on. "He lost it, and with It the chance of making a career of supreme service to mankind. I wonder if Mr. Bradney would mind telling us how." Women taking pnrt in the Olympic games next year will enter a section of five events, which have been added to the program for female competition.
