But, say, Quincy, it's gettin' late, letps go home? The two men arose, and after don- ning their hats went out into the great hall together. The foregoing conversation only touches upon the theme which they often discussed in their leisure moments. Quin- cy Morton was one of the old school men who felt that high school and col- lege education was a waste of time, and that the athree Risu were a sutlicient -Q0 foundation for a successful business career. Still, there was one charac- teristic in his nephew which he most admired, and that was determination. lt was because oi' the thorough satura- tion of his own character with this spirit that he had pulled the firm of Morton 8 Stiver through many tight places. Let us return to the young man whom we saw leaving the office. He was of medium height, but so well propor- tioned and possessing a face so frank and honest, that his introduction to a stranger gained more than a pass- ing notice. Richard Morton, for as such we will know him, was by this time nearing his uncle's home. The huge mansion was of dull, gray stone, and showed its lower walls but dimly through the huge trees which sur- rounded it. Within, the gloomy as- pect was carried to the extreme. An- tique furniture, sullen rugs, dark fres- coes of weird scenes, an abundance of dust aided in the effect, for while the elder Morton was not miserly, he had always endeavored to conduct his household affairs with about one-third the required help. Hence, while ev- erything was in its place, for there was no one to move it, the whole had a neglected appearance. In this place of gloom lived the uncle and nephew together, yet apart. The younger man spent his evenings diligently studying, while the elder, after smoking his pipe, made his noc- turnal tour of the house and retired. Occasionally the old man spent a few moments in the library closely watch- :ct hi th- pl so W1 St fo ul Cie of A1 fir th fo an. th roi in wi trc elf me ta W agi tor de: t 116: bu: wh slo Mo HTC
