Then that same still small voice tif jrnmor^ but now with an eerily detected boarding-icbool staccato sharpnesa to it, sidd that Van Twiller .was in love-with an actress! Van Twiller, whom it had Uken all tiiese year>.and all this waste of raw material tn the way of aneestora to Broadway, or in the Central Park, or at the house he generally fivquented. Uia chambers-and mighty comfortable ones ther were-on Thirty-fourth street were deaerted. He had dropped out of the world, shot like a bright particular star Irom his orbit in the heaven of the best society.

"It strikes me," said Frank Livingstone, whi. had been ruffling the leaves ofamagadneattheother end of the table, "that you fellers are in a great fevi-i about Van Twiller." "So we are." "Well, he has simply gone out of town." Where r Up to the old homestead on the Hudson." It's an odd time of year for a follow to go into the country. "He has gone to visit his mother," said Livingstone. "In February f "I didn't know, Delancy, there was any statute in force prohibiting a man from visiting his mother in February if be wanu to." Delancy; made some ligbt remark about the pleasure of communing with Nature with a cold in her head, and the topic was dropped. Livingstone was hand in glove with Van Twiller, and if any man shared his confidence it was Livingstone. He was aware of the gn�iip and speculation that had beeS rtf? in the club, but be either was not at liberty, or uiu nct think it worth while, to relieve our curiosity. In the course of a week or two it was reported that Van Twiller was going to Europe; and go be did. A dozen of us went down to the Scotia to see him off It was refreshing to have something as positive as the fact that Van Twiller had sailed. Shortly after Van Twiller's departure the whole thing came out. Whether Livingstone fuuud the secret too heavy a bunlen, or whether it transpired through some indiscretion on the nwrt of Mrs. VanrensaalUer Vanzandt Van Twiller, I cannot say ; but one eve nine the entire story was in posseMioii of the club. Van Twiller had actually been very deeply interested, not iu an actress-for the Intimate dnma was not her humble walk in life-but in Mademoiselle Olympe Zabriski, whose really perilous feats on the trapeze bad astonished New York the year before, though they had foiled to attract Delancy and me the night we wandered into the up-toVn theater on the trail of Van Twiller'a mystery. That a man like Vart Twiller should be fascinated for an instant bv a common cirous girl seems incredible : but it is always the incredible thing that bappaos. Ba>ides,Mademoisselle01ym-pe was not a common cirous girl; she was a most daring and surtling gym-naste, with a beauty :and grace of| movement that gave to her audacious performanee almost an air of prudery. Watching ber wondrous dexterity and pliaiet strength, both exereised without apparent effort, it seemed the moit natural thing in ttis world that she �hould do those unpardonable things. She had a way of melting from one graceful p>atnre into another, like the diaiolving figures thrown from a stere-optioon. She was like a lime, radiant shape out of the Grecian mythology, now poised up there above the ga� lights, and now gleaming through the air like a splendid gilt arrow. I am describing Mademoiselle Olym' pe as she appeared to Van Twiller on the first occasion when he strolled into the theater where she waa performlAg To me she was a girl oi eighteen or twenty vean of ags (maybe she was much older, for pean-powder and distance keep these people perpetually young), -lightly but exquisitely built, with sinews of silver wire; rather pret-tyi perbapa, after a manner, bat showing ptidnly the efiteta of the exhaustive dnma she waa making on her physical vitality. Now, Van Twiller was an enthnaaston tbetuMect of calisthenics. "If I had a daughter."

Now and then for a terrible instant, he would iniagihe her lying a glittering, paipitating heap at the foman turning nnmaid-enly summetaanjta on a piece of wood attached to two ropes. Mrs.1 Vanrenssalaer Vanzandt Van Twiller came do sa to town by liie next '.rain to look int�i thia little matter. She fi)ttnd tht flower vf the familj isking ao early breakfast, at 11 a. at..

VVitn th^ leasbpoasible locution she confronted him with what rumor had reported of hu pursuits, and wa* pleased, but not too much pleased, wiien-be gave be^ an exact account ol bb relations witl^ Mademoiselle Zabriski, neither concealing nor qualifying anything. As a confession it was uniqej and mi^t have jbeen a great deal less entertaining. Two or three times, in the course ot thelnarretive, the miatron had some difficulty in preserving tlie levity of her coontcnanoe. After med-lUting a few mi|iutes, she tapped Van Twiller on the arm with the tip of her parawl, and inviiedhim to return with her the next day up the Hudson and make a brief vttit at tbe home of bb ancestors. He accepted tbe invitation with outward alacrity andv Inward reluctance. I ^ When thb wasMttled, and the worthy lady had withdraWn, Van Twiller wisnt directly to theealablishmentoi Mesar*.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
