MY FBIEND THE DUTCHMAN.

times, and lnyfoily francs had hecomo

colonel looking on with a triumphant
smllo. This was suddenly exchanged
for n portentous frown and flcrco
twist of tho gray mustache.
" 'Milk million tie tonnerm! Not a
dollar loft to follow tip that splendid
run!' And, with a furious gesture, ho
upset his chair and dashed his cards
upon tho ground.
"I took the hint, whether Intended or
not. I could not do loss In return for
tho 5,000 francs tho old gentleman had

tho colonel, looking us stern nt If about

He was the typo of a class of which I

" 'Ah! Monsieur est militaire!' ex
claimed tho old gentleman, his alarm
ing contraction of brow and rigidity of
fenturo Instantaneously dissolving into
n smllo of extreme benignity. 'That
niters tho case. Certainly, between

up his chair, cards and pin and apply
ing all his faculties to break the bank
with ten louss which I lent him, and
which, I noed hardly say, I havo not
seen from that day to this.
"Such a sudden stroke of good for

want tho organ of gaming, for I havo

In my pocket, I looked back at tho at

what even you would admit to bo great
economy, writing frequent letters to
Amsterdam and trying to come to terms

the like absurdities, until I plainly saw
they wero determined to cast mo off,
and that, If I was to bo helped at all,
it must bo by myself. How to do this
was tho puzzle. Thcro are few things
1 can do that could in any way bo ren
dered prolltablo. I can ride a horse,
lay a gun and put a battery through Its
exercise; but such accomplishments aro
sulllclently common not to be paid at a
very high rate; and. besides, I had had
enough of garrison duty, oven could
I have got back my commission, which
was not likely. So I put soldiering out
of tho question; and yet, when i hud
dono so, I was puzzled to think of any

afow birds of that breed, and hadcomo
to tho conclusion that, to save them
selves work and trouble thev had
adopted by far tho most laborious and
painful of all professions.
"In tho midst of my doubts and un
certainties, tho fair Sendcl and her
mother mado their appearance. Tho
first sight of their names upon the hotel
book was a ray of light to mo. AVithln
an hour I mado up my mind to sac
riflco my independonco to my necessi
ties and become tho virtuous and do
mesticated spouso of tho charming nnd
well-paid Emillo. A hint and a dollar
to tho waiter placed mo noxt her at tho
tablo-d'hotc. and I Immediately opened
my intrcuchments and began a sicgo In
"Which you expect will soon ter
minate by tho capitulation of tho car
rison?" "Undoubtedly. Tho result of tho
first day or two's operations was not
very satisfactory I rattled away and
did tho amiable to a furious extent; but
tho divinity was shy, and tho guardian
of tho temple (an old gorgon whom I
shall suppress before tho honeymoon Is
out) looked askanco at mo and pulled
her daughter by tho sleevo whenever
she seemed disposed to listen. They
evidently thought tho rattle might bo
long to a snake; did mo tho Injustice to
tnko mo for an adventurer. On the
third day, however, the Ico had melted.
I soon found out tho cause of tho thaw.
Tho head waiter, whom a littlo well
timed liberality had rendered my de
voted blavo, Informed mo that Madame
Scndel had been making minute In
quiries concerning mo of tho master of

looked only at tho sum total of his
bills, said that I was n son of Van Ilau
bltz, tho rich banker of Amsterdam,
which was perfectly truo; adding,
which was rather less so, that I was a
partner In tho houso and a millionaire.
Tho effect of this Information upon tho
speculative Arm of Sendcl Mere el Fillc,
was perfectly electric. Medusa smothed
her horrid locks and camo out at that
day's dinner in cherry ribbons and fresh
artificials. Emillo was all smiles and
suavity, laughed at my worst jokes,
nearly .burst her stays by holding her
breath to ralso n blush at my soft
speeches, and returned from that even

plicity "would hnvo greatly persllcd
tho success of my schemo. Sendel, sr.,
having only tho Inltcepor's report to
rely on, would havo had her un
generous suspicions reawakened by
my precipitation, and havo Instituted
further Inquiries; havo written, prob.
ably, to somo friend in Holland and
learned that tho pretender to her
daughter's hand, although unquestion
ably a son of tho wealthy Hanker Van
Haubitz, isoxcluded beyond redemption
from tho good graces of that respectable
pillar of Dutch nuance, who has
further announced his Irrevocable de
termination to tako not tho slightest
notice of him in his testamentary dispo
sitions. "Tho excellent Ilerr Hratcnbongel,
whose succulent dinner wo aro now di
gesting, and whoso very laudablo Hades
heimer stands boforo lis, had unwit
tingly laid tho foundation of my suc
cess; it was for mo to ralso tho super
structure. Now It was that I rejoiced
at my economy sluco tho lucky hit at
tho gaming table. Tho greater part of
my winnings still remained to mo;
golden grain, which 1 profusely scat
tered, surd that It would yield rich
harvest, I had already mado a favor
abla ImprcsMon, nnd this I took euro to
confirm by tho liberal expenditure
which you, In your Ignorance, hnve
called cxtravnganco; by treating money
as If Its abundanco In my coffers mado
it valueless In my eyes, and by dcllcato
generosity In tho shapo of presents to
mother nnd daughter. Tho trap was
too well set to provo a failure; tho birds
aro fairly snared, and tonight, when
wo tako our usual romantic stroll, I
shall ralso tho fair Sendcl to the seventh
heaven of happiness by asking her to
bicomoMadamo Van Ilaubltz.
Although tho tenor and tone of theso
confessions by no means tended to olc
vato tho Dutchman In my opinion, I
could not but smllo nt the coolness
with which they wero made nnd at tho
skill of his maneuvers. There was
somo good about tho scamp; ho had
his own codo of honor, such ns
it was, and from that ho would
not easily havo been Induced
to swerve. He would havo scorned
to do a dirty thing, to cheat nt
cards, or leave a debt of honor unpaid;
but would readily hnvo got in debt to
trades-men and money-lenders beyond
nil possibility of reimbursement. And
ns regarded his present conspiracy
against tho celibacy and snlnrv of
Mademoiselle Scndel, n senate of sages
and logicians would havo failed to con
vince him of Its Impropriety. Ho
looked upon It as n most justifiable
stratagem, n lawful spoiling of tho
spoiler, praiseworthy in tho slcht of
men, gods and columns, and which ho
would perhaps havo boasted of to n
considerable extent to many besido my
self had not secrcsy been essential to
the wcllaro of his combinations.
I did not feel mysolf bound to betray
his plot or to put tho Scndel on her
guard against this snako among tho
roses. And whllo mentally resolving
rather to diminish than increaso tho
intimacy which the confident nnd con
fidential artilleryman had In great
measure forced upon me, and which I,
through a sort of casy-colng indolence
of character, had perhaps somewhat
lightly accepted, I anticipated diversion
In watching tho mnncuvcrs of tho
high contractinc parties. I considered
myself as a spectator called upon to
witniss nn amusing comedy in real life,"
nnd ndmitted behind tho scenes by pe
culiar favor of an actor. I resolved to
watch the progress of tho intrigue, and,
If possible, to be present at tho denoue
ment. "Aro you quite certain," said I to
Van, "that Mademoiselle Scndcl's pe
cuniary position and prospects are so
very favorable? Tho sum you men
tioned Is a largo ono for an actress who
has been so short a tlmo upon the stage.
Public report, very apt to tako liberties
with the reputation of theatrical ladles,
often endeavors to compensate them by
magnifying their salaries.
A an, I may hero mention, lest tho
lender should not have perceived it,
had a most lnordinato opinion of his
own abilities and ncutencss. Like cer
tain Yankees, ho "conceited" It was
necessary to rise before tho sun to out
wit him, nnd even then your chanco
was a poor one. Ho had been in hot
water all his life, never out of difficul
ties and scrapes once, as has been
shown, kept from suicide by n mere
accident, nnd was now reduced to the
alternative) of beggary or of marrying for
a living. None of those circumstances,
which would havo taken tho conceit
out of most men, at all Impaired his
opinion of his talent and sharpness.
Heplylng to my observation merely by
a slight shrug and by a smile of pity
for tho man who thus misappreclated
his foresight, he again produced his
pockctbook and extracted from its In
neimosticccsscsa fragment of a Ger
man newspaper, reputed oracular In
matters theatrical. This ho handed to
mc, tapping a particular paragraph sig
nignificantly with his forefinger. Tho
paragraph was thus conceived:

"Clear enough, I think." said Van,
when I raised my eyes from tho pro
tracted periods of tho ponny-a-llner.
I had nothing to say against tho lu
cidity of tho paragraph, nor anything
to urge, at all likely to avail, against
the prosecution of Van's designs upon
tho lady's hand and 15,000 florins, with
"two months' conge and other ad
vantages." No possiblo sophistry, to
which I was equal, could provo tho
marriage to bo against his interest; and
as to trying him on tho tack of delicacy

feather shafts without feeling them,
or that the utmost effect I could expect
to produce would bo to get Into a
quarrel with the redoubtable natlvo of
tho Netherlands, a predicament In
which, ns a man of peace, I was by no
means anxious to find myself. So,
after hnzardinc tho fruitless hint with
which tho rcador was mado acquainted
at tho commencement of this narrative,
I abstained from all further interned

leaving Van Haubitz to con tho declai

nothing more of the Hollander till tho

factorily settled, the evening closed In
haimonj and bliss.

said Vun Hnubilz, when ho had con

The start I gave at this alarming an
nouncement nearly broke the bed. This
wns carrying things rather too far. Not
satisfied with rendoring mo, by his in
trusive and unsolicited confidence, a
sort of tacit accomplice In his ma
neuvers, this Dutch Gil Bias would
fain make mc an active participant. 1
drew at sight on my imagination,
quickened by tho peril, for n letter re
ceived tho previous evening from a dear
and near relative, who lay dangerously
ill at Baden-Baden, nnd to whoso sick
bed it was absolutely necessary I should
immediately repair; and, jumping up,
I began to dress in nil haste, rang
furiously for tho bill and a carriage
and requested Van Haubitz to present
my excuses to tho ladies, my unex
pected doparturo at that early hour de
priving mo of the pleasure of taking
leave of them. Tho Dutchman swore
oil manner of dundericcttcrs and sacra
ments that he was grieved at my de
parture, trusted I should find mv friend
better, and return to Frankfort in
time for thomaniago, but did not press
mo to do so, and in reality was too ex
hilarated by tho success of hismachl
nations to care a straw about tho mat
ter. And saying ho must go and wrlto
to Amsterdam, ho shook mo by tho
hand and loft tho room, whistling In
loud and joyous key tho burthen of a
Dutch match. In less than an hour I
was on tho road to Frankfort, and that
evening I reached Heidelberg, where
somo friends of mine had passed tho
summer. I expected to find them still
there, but they had left for Baden

Tho count and his companion turned
nt the announcement, and fouud them
selves face to faco with our party.
Thcro was a general start and exclama
tion from tho three women. The strango
lady turned very palo and visibly trem
bled; Madamo Van Hnubltz gavo n
slight scream; her mother Hushed as
red as the popples In her head-dress,
and hung liko a log upon my arm,
glatlng angrily nt tho strangers. For
one moment all stood still. Van Hau
bitz and I looked at each other in be
wilderment. He was evidently struck
by the extraordinary resemblance, now
that tho two ladies wero scon together.
"Como, Ameline," said tho count,
who alone preserved completo self
possession. And ho hurried his com

self fall upon a chair with mi hysterical
giggle, closed her eyes and seemed
preparing for n conifoitablo swoon.
Her daughter hastened tohcrasslstanco
and untied her bonnet; Van Haubitz
grasped n decanter of water and mado
an alarming demonstration of empty
ing it upon tho full-moon countenance
of his respectablo mother-in-law. I
was curious to sco him do It, for I had
always hail my doubts whether tho
dowager's colors wero what Is techni
cally termed "fast." Mycuriosity was
not gratified. AVhcther from appre
hension of tho remedy or fiom some
other cause, I cannot say, but Madamo

two or three grotcsquo contortions of

with her daughter and son-in-law for
supporters, and half a scoro waiters

I thought It unnecessary to add I j tho
escort. As she left tho room theio was
n clatter of hoofs outside, and looking
through tho window I saw tho coronet
