And she was right and hence in part her conduct. But Jules had her in More than this the count Henry Des Essaris was by no Means disconcert the chilling reception which he found in the family of Duvivier. He seated himself near the piano As usual where it to happened that Athenais rather an unusual display of her jewelry. Among the reef the first thing who Fly struck his eyes was the Brace let the Possession of which As a proof of his Conquest Waff at this moment the great object of his ambition.

But the i its were not altogether Friendly to count henrvr1 it so happened that his Friend Emmanuel was shrewd in tracing out clues and Small amount of intimacy with the intimates of Jules led him to conjecture that with the family he Vivier. He accordingly contrived to let the Painter know of the bet which had been made with the count touching the Bracelet. The sequel of his reve lations was that Jules had an invitation to be present on the when the grand Jesuu was to be reveal eco. Now the. Whole Story was to our Young artist like flames to Gunlov Odfer. He needed but a spark for his perfect information. He called to memory in rapid succession All which connected the count with Athenais the evening of the visits to Athenais which immediately Fol Lowed and computing the interval of time be tween the first meeting and the appointed Day he found it to comprise just the fourteen Days assigned to the bet. There was no reason Why he should not fully believe the Story of Emman Uel. " presentiment rarely was exclamation. You have no objections to defeat the count said he to his informant. It is indeed your policy to do so.

He too made his Way to the dwelling of Madame Duvivier., by her he was received with customary politeness. But the reception of Athenais was she had seen the Painter. He had made himself Athenais was confiding but not a she had fathomed the Depths of the count and indeed he had been too Gross in his Flet teries. He bad overdone the matter and in seeking to conciliate her weaknesses had offended her tastes. She Felt thai his were too rapid for duration and too numerous for sincer it i and perhaps she had began to suspect the Virtues of a warmth in Jules which might compensate for All that she should show of indifference to the count. She would now philosophies somewhat coolly upon his Friendship and his sentiment and1, was much More wow by now in of her own j safety of that position in society which his vanity i had made necessary to him. He no longer de j Ludd himself with the idea that he could per Suade the by ocelot from the owner. The More legitimate of obtaining it was lost and he became unscrupulous upon the sudden. While bestowing Bis praises upon Hilsinger and ostensibly looking up of music from the piles before him for the exercise of the musician he contrived with a dexterity of hand which almost declared for a of practice to Transfer the Bracelet to a place be tween certain folds of the music whery for a while it i by a second and subsequent movement he passed the jewel into his Sieve As hoped unseen. But the keen and suspicious. Eye of the Painter bad suffered none of his proceedings to escape he smiled Cov Ertly at what he saw but said nothing. The , meanwhile Happy in his wretched sue Cess prepared to take his departure. He had compassed of his visit not perhaps Asj he had originally calculated to effect it but sufficiently to his satisfaction1 in regard to the result of the Wager.
