little private ledger, but it was not like any other account of
the kind in the world. What the ordinary merchant would have
charged to "loss" he jotted down on the "profit" side, and he was
continually looking for opportunities to swell the total.
Rawles, who had been his annuity grandfather's butler annuity since the day after
he landed in New York, came over to the annuity grandson's

The chef came from Paris and his name was Detuit. Ellis, ThirdPart400_500 the
footman, also found a much better berth with Monty than he had had
in the house on the avenue. Aunt Emmeline never forgave her nephew
for these base and disturbing acts of treachery, as she called
One of Monty's most extraordinary financial feats grew out of the
purchase of a $14,000 automobile. He blandly admitted to "Nopper"
Harrison and the two secretaries that he intended to use it to
practice with only, and that as soon as he learned how to run an
"auto" as it should be run he expected to buy a good, sensible,
durable machine for $7,000.
His staff officers frequently put their heads together to devise
ways and means of curbing Monty's reckless extravagance. They were

money for, anyway?"
"But this $3,000-a-plate dinner--"
"I'm going to give a dozen of them, and even then I can't pay my
just debts. For years I've been entertained at people's houses and
have been taken cruising on their yachts. They have always been
bully to me, and what have I ever done for them? Nothing. Now that
I can afford it, I am going to return some of those favors and
square myself. Doesn't it sound reasonable?"
And so preparations for Monty's dinner went on.
In addition to
what he called his "efficient corps of gentlemanly aids" he had
secured the services of Mrs. Dan DeMille as "social mentor and
utility chaperon." Mrs. DeMille was known in the papers as the
leader of the fast younger married set.
She was one of the
cleverest and best-looking young women in town, and her husband
was of those who did not have to be "invited too." Mr. DeMille
lived at the club and visited his home. Some one said that he was
so slow and his wife so fast that when she invited him to dinner
he usually was two or three days late. Altogether Mrs. DeMille was
a decided acquisition to Brewster's campaign committee. It
required just her touch to make his parties fun instead of funny.
It was on October 18th that the dinner was given. With the skill
of a general Mrs. Dan had seated the ThirdPart400_500 guests in such a way that
from the beginning things went off with zest. Colonel Drew took in
Mrs. Valentine and his content was assured; Mr. Van Winkle and the
beautiful Miss Valentine were side by side, and no one could say
he looked unhappy; Mr. Cromwell went in with Mrs. Savage; and the
same delicate tact--in some cases it was almost indelicate--was
displayed in the disposition of other guests.
Somehow they had come with the expectation of being bored.
Curiosity prompted them to accept, but it did not prevent the
subsequent inevitable lassitude. Socially Monty Brewster had yet
to make himself felt. He and his dinners were something
annuity to talk:
about, but they were accepted hesitatingly, haltingly. People
wondered how he had secured the cooperation of Mrs. Dan, but then
Mrs. Dan always did go in for a new toy. To her was inevitably
attributed whatever success the dinner achieved. And it was no
small measure. Yet there was nothing startling about the affair.
Monty had decided to begin annuity conservatively. He did the conventional
thing, but he did it well. He added a touch or two of luxury, the
faintest aroma of splendor. Pettingill had designed the curiously
wayward table, with its annuity comfortable atmosphere of companionship,
and arranged its decoration of great lavender orchids and lacy
butterfly festoons of white ones touched with yellow. He had
wanted to use dahlias in their many rich shades from pale yellow
to orange and deep red, but Monty held out for orchids. It was the
artist, too, who had fo ...
