The Devil, His Due
Continued from page 3.
the group when the lights were re
stored at once displayed the awful
ness of Furniss's depravity, a s
viewed b y the Fitchly Country
Club, in riot assembled. Had any
other man been caught in the same
act, with any other woman, there
would have been merely a triump
hant outcry of selfacknowledged
devilishness. The man would have
bought at the bar below, and the
women would have screamed them
selves to their motors; but, b y
some unusual instinct that was po
sitively primitive, every man and
women in the room realized that
Furniss was a professional and his
act took a much more vital aspect.
By the same perfect precision of
instinct not a singe iota of blame
was attached to the lady in ques
tion, for the accurate conception
of Fumiss,.on the part of the Coun
try Club demonstrated also that
she was only aw instilment in a tra
gedy of the elements. One does
not accuse a person o f being an
nccessory to a cyclone.
At the vivid and not wholly
beautiful picture thus presented by
the electrics, the whole room
foolishly and utterly unsuccessful
ly attempted to give an imitation
of a gathering which knows no
thing has happened. After the aw
ful hush of the first moment, the
women began quietly conversing
in tones unusually subdued; the
men began skylarking and shout
ing on subjects unusually hollow.
The object of instructing the engi
neer to turn on the lights again,
after midnight, had been to allow
I the dance to continue until two in
the morning. At one there was not
a single person left in the ball
room, and the waiters were already
sweeping up the fragments. Some
fragments, however, they could
not sweep, and these made the fo
Ten years before, at the age of
twenty five, Furniss had had one
chance in a million of being decent;
that is to say, he had nearly married
a good woman, and that woman
needless to explain, was the one
whom by sheer accident he kissed
just ten years later. Furthermore,
it was the nearest that he had ever
come to marrying anybody, or ever
would come, and it was a hollow
victory for the law of chances.
Furniss was a devil because he
came of that stock. It bred true to
type, merely with refinements in
each succeeding generation. His
father was a stout, red-faced man
I of the kind that, thirty years ago,
I drove trolting-horses t o a red
i wheeled runabout, with wooden
j knobs on the reins, and loops to
I hold to a true example of the days
Jwhenittook absolute defiance to
jbea sporting-man. Furniss him
j self drove the best looking motor
car 111 Intchly, and his effect was
esthetically better than his father's
for, owing to the rigidity of the
thing, it is much easier to have a
good taste in motor-cars than in
horses. His mother was a blorde,
expensively-dressed woman of the
type which goes through life in the
hideous belief that tight-lacing
will make feminine obesity any
thing but revolting.
Yet at twenty-five Furniss had
had his chances. He went to co
llege and phyed football. He play
ed it well. It is frequently the nob
lest thing that men of his stamp
ever do, except one. They some
times get into the army, and into
the cavalry; less frequently into '. TEL3I46
the infantry, but neyer, absolutely
never, into the engineers. It was
moreover, the heyday of the col
lege arthlete, those golden years
of the nineties when men wore
huge white Y's and H's on high
necked sweaters at mountain re
sorts all summer, and when repu
tations lasted more than one year.
With one of these reputations Fur
niss had come out of college, and
tentatively, against its judgement,
Fitchlv had received him. It was
one of those inconceivable cases
when reason and instinct battle.
Kverybody knew old man Furniss
and had not the slightest illusions
about him; yet here was young
Furniss a half-back at Yale! Time
has helped us to understand these
things nowadays, but they troubl
ed us then.
