Thats your bill, my boy, and-Ive got to pay it. James Carbhoy leaned back smiling, his half-humorous eyes squarely challenging his son, who was lounging in a luxurious morocco chair at the other side of the desk. As the moments passed without producing any reply, he reached towards the cabinet at his elbow and helped himself to a large cigar. Without any scruple he tore the end off it with his strong teeth and struck a match. Well? Gordon Carbhoy cleared his throat and looked serious.

In spite of his fathers easy, smiling manner he knew that a crisis in his affairs had been reached. He understood the iron will lying behind the pleasant steel-gray eyes of his parent. It was a will that flinched at nothing, a will that had carved for its owner a great fortune in Americas most strenuous financial arena, the railroad world. He also knew the only way in which to meet his fathers challenge with any hope of success.

Above everything else the millionaire demanded courage and manhood-manhood as he understood it-from those whom he regarded well. Im waiting. Gordon stirred. The millionaire carefully lit his cigar. Put that way it-sounds rotten, Dad, doesnt it? Gordons mobile lips twisted humorously, and he also reached towards the cigar cabinet. But the older man intercepted him. He held out a box of lesser cigars. Try one of these, Gordon. One of the others would add two dollars to your bill.

These are half the price. The two men smiled into each others eyes. A great devotion lay between them. But their regard was not likely to interfere with the business in hand.
