Bracebridge stood on tte steps of
the Casino. He had just tempted For
tune, and for once the jade had proved
a prude, and he was left with a broken
purse. To describe his remorse would
be impossible; he wondered dully
what his mother would think when he
should seek her out that night in their
unpretentious hotel that overlooked
the bay at Monaco and tell her that
the trip would have to be postponed;
that they must hasten home without
delay. He cursed himself for a fool,
and then chuckled grimly as he
thought of the surplusage of money he
would have when be had pawned va
rious articles of apparel, the proceeds
of which would go to buy tickets for
"Just enough for a box of cigar
ettes," he muttered as he stumbled
down the steps to the street.
"Sir, can you not understand even
English?" spoke a delicious musical
voice. Bracebriage scrambled slowly
back to earth from the realms of de
spair into which he had descended. A
big red limousine car stood by the
curb, and from its window protruded
a vision of pink and gold au J fluffiness
that caused Bracebridge to uncover
with a haste that was more worshipful!
"Eh! What do you want?" he asked,
rudely, for his dulled brain was not aa
quick as it was wont to be, nor his
tongue as smooth; but the next h>
stant he blushed in coniuslon at his
own gruffness. "I beg your pardon,
madam; can I be of service to you?"
"Ah, you can." she sighed, relieved
ly. "Come into the car," and she
threw open the door, making room for
him beside her.
"But," said Bracebridge, hesitating.
"Come, if you are going," she spoke
impatiently, at the same time rising
and grasping his wrist Bracebridge
stepped from the curb and dropped on*
the seat beside her.
"Away, Adolphe!" she cried, sharp
ly. The chauffeur started the machine
with a rush.
Bracebridge had a sensation of a
swift journey through the night, but
it was a dim one, for he was busy
drinking in the woman's beauty as she
sat beside him, her neck encircled by
pearl collar, an expensive opera
cloak thrown over ber shoulders. The
girl laughed mischievously and said:
I am*human; you act afraid, as
though you might be in the presence
of a deity. I would not harm a living
creature and surely not you. Besides,
I am smaller than you, you see." Sha
ranged her tiny gloved hand in white
kid beside Bracebrldge's larger ones.
And then the eternal masculine as
sumptiveness of soul arose in Brace
bridge. He could not tell from whence
came his sudden courage, but with a
pounce he captured her fingers and
threw his muscular arm around her.
"You are mussing my frock; I will
call Adolphe, you insolent man," she
said, between gasps.
The car ran to the curb and stepped
with a jerk. When the door wa3
opened Bracebridge was saying: "I am
clumsy, madam, in arranging your
cloak, and I greatly fear your ruffles
will be spoiled." He stepped out and
looked around; they were back In
front of the Casino again. / .
"I thank you greatly that you will
aid me at all, sir," she said, smiling.
"I abducted you o na wager, sir, that
I could carry off the first gentleman I
saw at the Casino."
"And may I see you tomorrow?" he
asked, his soul in suspense.
"The heart cannot be controlled,"
she whispered softly. "Drive on.
Adolphe." The machine whirred
"And now to purchase those cigar
ettes," said Bracebridge. Something
crackled in his coat pocket; he felt,
and lt was a newspaper.
"How did I get that?" he asked him
self, opening it absently. The flaming
headlines caught his eye:
WOMAN IN RED AUTO
ROBS ENGLISH Lo RD.
Most Daring Scheme in Years-Lord
Algernon the Victim.
He put his hand in his change pock
et where reposed his last flve-frano
note, "a remnant of the last battle."
"The devil; that girl has touched
me!" he cried. "I was a fool not to
think before what her game was. . . .
But thank the gods that I am only a
common person; they'll never know
what a fool I've been, as they know
about the Snglishucah. I don't believe
I will smoke cigarettes tonight," he
added, as an afterthought. He pulled
out his old briar pipe, lighting it in
silence; then he slowly took his way
toward the hotel.
" 'Tis sad to lose your money and
your ideal on one summer's eve," he
quoth, very crestfallen.

Wine ad. Libitmv ?
The old house between the Tiber
and the Piazza Navona at Rome" are
shortly to be pulled down, and with
them an interesting old landmark
the Osteria d-.i Orso, situated at tho
corner of the ?ia del Orso and the
Via Santa Lucia, writes an Italian,
correspondent. This house once gave
shelter to princes and poets-among
the latter Dante and Goethe-aDd was
at one time the most fashionable hos
telry ir. Rome. It was particularly
popular because the price of a roora
some 50 cents-in the fourteenth cen
tury comprised wine ad libitum, while
in other inns the refreshments te
which guests were entitled free of
charge was limited to a certain port
