therefore, exactly hnlf way between the
abodes of poverty and wealth. At the
time of the occurrence herein lo be related
It was, kept as n lodging and hoarding

whose long experience had made her keen
and wary. -,-Hcr guests wero of all clashes
and descriptions, men rising from the

table those who were descending from the
gentility of tho avenue.
One October mornltiK n young man ap
plied to her for n room. She sot her little
pray eyes sharply upon him, as was her
habit, but saw nothing Out of the common
place. 8he always divided her patron In
to three classes those coming up fiom
near the bay, those sinking from the r.ve

shrowdly placed this one among II o tec

"My thlrd-tloor front room Is vacant."
Mrs. l'rowltt said, "but I usually ret lif
tcen dollars n month for It."
"That Is entirely satisfactory lo me,"
Mulford replied. "The price Is nothing to
me, although 1 shnll not occupy the room
more than one night a month. lV.it I thiill
want It kept ready for me, though you are
at liberty to use It any nlitlit, provided
you do not receive word of my coming Im
for (1 o'clock. I shall pay you In advance,
pending you yoilr money by mail on the
last of each month." He drew out bis
purse, counted fifteen dollars upon his
knee, and added, "Here Is tho first month's
rent, provided you shall lit mo have the
Mrs. Prnwltt was too 'trim to let such a
chance slip, nnil she quickly Closed the
transaction. Her requirement of rt fer
ences had nlwnys been a mere form often
a ruso to get rid of an unpromising appli
cant. She did not, therefore, ask Mulford
for hi", considering his money Rulllclcnt In
dorsement. "It Is probable," said Mulford, ns ho de
livered the money and rose to leave, "that
1 shall not renppcur for several months,
and If you do not receive fifteen dollars
from me near the first of any month, ou
will be at liberty to rent the room. 1: Is
likely that I may send some one occ.ilon
tilly to occupy the. room, but ho will al
ways bring a note from me."
This piece of luck was too good for Mrs.
Prowltt to keep to herself, and It was soon
a matter for general discussion around her
tables. A man who could altord to pay for
a loom without occupying It wns it rarity
at No. 4313, and Mulford became a mystery.
The first month passed, nnd tho third-floor
front was unoccupied, except when Mrs.
l'rowltt quartered a transient. On the last
dav of this month, a registered letter was
delivered to her, from which she drew
three crisp five dollar bills nnd a note from
Mulford stating that he would soon send
n friend to tnke possession of the room.
Hut when this and several more months
passed without sign or representative of
MUlt'ord than tho regular letters Inclosing
the bills, the.r'entnl of the upper chamber
became a sensation.
At last, however, one early December
afternoon n little old man appeared, bring
ing from Mulford n note which stated his
wish that Mrs. l'rowltt would placo In his
room tho article that the bearer would de
liver, and to have the npartment kett
ready for occupancy. The Httlo old man
was quite odd. Ho was much bent nnd
very gray. Ills left eye was blind: .hut tho
right, restless and twinkling, together with
bis whole countenance, made Mrs. l'rowltt
think ho could tell a great ileal. It so mind
cd. Ho wns not so minded, however, una
her questions elicited only amusement, to
which his blindness lent the appearance of
Tho article ho brought was a largo three
fold, Japanese screen, highly decorated
with gilt birds, reptiles, nnd unlmnls dis
porting themselves on a sabla ground.
After tho Httlo old man bad gone, nnd
Mrs. l'rowltt bad set the Fcreen In Mul
ford's room, she went down to tho tables
to express her opinion Hint a Japanese
screen was n queer article for a young man
to send, and tho boarders agreed with her
so strongly ns to repair to the. upnrtmcnt
to Inspect It. The screen wns ordinary,
vet extraordinary, and curiosity played
about tho bamboo frame ns whimsically
ns tho golden decorations within It. A
hatched, or a trunk, or even a chair would
have aroused simple expectntlon; but a
Japanese screen, though not uncommon
In a bedroom, suggested something so de
cidedly out of tho cominonplnco that Mul
ford'a advent was nvnlted with lively In
terest. A week passed, however; and,
though Mrs. l'rowltt kept gas burning In
th ovcnlngs, had fresh water put dally
Into the pitcher, nnd hung clean towels
upon tho rack, neither Mulford nor his
For twelve days she bad these prepara

when the maid admitted him to tho par
lor. At this hour nil the lodgers wero out
pursuing their various evening pastimes,
except John Ilaylor, who was practicing
upon bis clarionet in his sceotul-tloor room.
Mrs. l'rowltt went to the parlor, expecting
to And a young man of about Mulford's
nge, but she was surprised lo see a gentle
man of probably 01. lie was, however, well
preserved and active, and wns dressed -very
much better than any one sho bad ever
lodged. There was an unmlstakablo air of
the avenue about htm that Set Mrs. l'row
ltt to thinking sho had seen him before,
nnd to wondering where It had been. Ho
carried a bulging blun bag of heavy ma
terial, nnd his whrJe bearing nnd appear
mice, wore thoso of a busy lawyer. Mrs.
Prowltt made these observations distinctly,
as was her habit: but later occunonces In
dented them In her mind, In relating ex
actly how the old lawyer enteied tho par
lor, how ho talked, and In describing him,
he always had dilllculty putting one fact
Into words. ... , , .., ,
"Somehow," she always said, "ho mado

about him that made him seem unreal, a

"Is thero nnythlng you want me partlou
larly to do?" Mrs. l'rowltt nsked him, She
1ms always laid great stress upon the fact
that sh observed everything that occurred
that night accurately and has been unvary
ing In her iiuimtlve.
"Is thero a table In the room?" the law
yer asked, absently,
"Yes, Mr, Mulford requested me to put
one In for him." ..-.,,,,.
"That Is well, Then, all I wish U to be
entirely undisturbed. I have many papers
to examine to-night," he Mid, tapping the
blue bat, "I am engaged on a matter of
vast Importance to a wealthy estate, and J
thall ask you to see that no. one Is admit
ted to tho room, I am ready to bo to work
now. It you please,"
Mrs. l'rowltt showed him. to the third
floor front, turned up tho light, and, before
leaving, saw him take from the bag a large
bundle of pap-rs, tied with pink tape, pud
lay them busily upon the table. He then
nulled up a chair and sat down. She not
ced particularly that the Japanese screen
stood ubout tin eft feet from the back of
his chair and ubout two feet from the win
dows, Tho weather being cold, the sashes
were drawn and locked, and tho lower in
side shutters drawn and, latched. There
was a sheer descent front the windows to
the pavement, with no outside ledge below
them, o that It was Imposslblo for any
one to have entered the room through
them. Mrs. Prowltt has been unwavering

ill looked for him so long, but because the
lan had given her a queer feeling of dread

f wondered what could have brought so
eh a lawyer to her house: but It was not
Is query that madejier uneasy. She toldJS
Itaylor of this strange Impression, and Of
Ihe fact Hint, while with the old l.twjer In
the room, she had had a creepy notion that
she was entirely nlone, although lie had
been Plain lo her eyes. She had noticed
Hint he had walked vigorously, but hi
slep bad been surprisingly fnlnt, and the
papers hud not rattled whn he took them
fmtn the b.ig. She wns very nervous. She
di 1 not believe In ghost, she declare I, but
certainly this nn the stranger.t lodger she
had ever had In her house. Hhe was afraid
something dreadful might happen, and she
nsked Itnylor to keep his door open nth!
to walk up the stairway occasionally nnd
llstm. He promised to do so, nnd sho left
At 11 o'clock she hurried back and said:
"Wonll you mind going with me to Mr.
Mulford's room mid listen outside the door?
I want to know whether the old mnn Is
sleeping. 1 see from the pnvment out
side thnt he has turned the gas out."
"That onn not he," Hnylor nhskered, ex
citedly. "I walked up the stairs not morn
than flvo minutes ago and saw his light
shining through the transom."
"Maw his llRhl?" echoed Mrs. Prowltt, in
an awed whisper, "It wn Jnt nlnlt tlve
minutes ago thnt I looked from the pave
ment outside nnd hl windows were dark.
Are you sure you saw the light?"
"Yes. but I could not hear a sound In
side the room,"
".Mr. Hnylor, there Is something terrible
In the Air to-nleht. and I enn't tell what It
Is. Let us go up there and listen."
They ascended to .Mulford's room. Hrlght
light was shining through the transom.
Mrs. l'rowltt knocked three times, receiving
nn answer. Then she called, but the room
remained perfectly silent.
"I'd like .iu to look over tho transom
Mr. ltavlor," she said. "There Is some
thing m.vstcrlons hete."
Ilaylor brought to tho door two chairs
that were standing In the hall, nnd, step
ping upon one, looked through the tran
som. He stnrted, nnd nsked Mrs. Prowltt
to get upon the other and look. They
saw the old lawyer still sitting nt the
table with bundles of legnl papers before
him. He wns too deeply engaged to notice
that his long hair had slipped down over
his forehead and nlnioit overhung his eyr-s.
As they looked from his peaceful fnce to
tht documents before him, Mrs. Prowltt
started violently, caught llaylor's arm, nnd
"Look nt his hands, lie Is making the
motions of writing, hut there Is no pen in
his hand He Is "
She faltered from fright, and Hnylor said:
"He Is a madman, Mrs. l'rowltt."
"No, ho Is worse than that. He Is not a
real mnn. Something nwful Is going to hnp
pen to-night. I did not quite trust that
mnn Mulford from the start. Why should
lie have tented this room nnd not occupied

terrible. Look there. Did you see tho
"No, I did hoi, bill "
Ho stopped abruptly, for two hnnds rose
from behind the screen, nnd, catching its
extreme ends, lifted It from the Poor nnd
carried It stealthily toward tho old mnn.
They wero large and rnusoulnr, ugly nnd
grimy such bunds ns would delvo In tho
slime and vice of the lower street. With
the exception of his hands, the person be
hind the screen was hidden until he had
cnrrlod It, noiselessly nnd stealthily, until
It almost touched the old man's ehnlr.
There the hands stopped nnd stood It se
curely, and Instantly a head rose from be
hind It. The terrible face held the two out
side watchers motionless. The vlleness nnd
wickedness of tho slums wns ground In
each blotched and bloated feature. The
terrible creature looked for some minutes
upon tho old lawyer with a leer of mur
derous triumph. Then, with a horrible
smile of satisfaction tho man raised his
right nrm high over tho scroen, his dirty,
mlon-llko hand clutching a dagger.
Mrs. l'rowltt shrank with a scream from
tho sight, nnd fell lo a sitting posture upon
her chair; while Hnylor, aroused to action,
pounded upon the glass of the transom nnd
Kicked upon the door, but the old lawyer
continued peacefully writing nt the table,
and the assassin wns not stayed In his
purpose. With a swift, skillful stroke, the
knife fell, nnd Hnylor saw It sink Into the
lawyer's breast, saw htm writhe upon the
clinir nnd fall to the floor. He leaped from
tho chair and threw himself ngnlnst tho
door, but It withstood hlrt force.
"Help me here, Mrs. Prowltt," he cried.
"The lawyer hns been murdered. The door
Is locked upon tho inside. Help mo break
Their united strength nt last broko the
lock, nnd the door swung In. Hnylor took
one rapid step forward, but stopped upon
the sill with a stinted cry. Tho room was
dark and silent. No moan or sound of
death struggling came from the murdered
man under the tnble.
"A match, Mrs. rrowltt," he said; "for
tho love of heaven, let us have a light
"There is a matehsafe over the wash
stand In tho corner," gasped the land
For a few moments Hnylor groped In tho
blackness for a match. At last he- struck
one, and tho gns pulfed up. H,o shrank
back ngalnst the wall by the door. The
room wns entirely deserted; the tabic was
bare of legal papers; the screen stood In Its
place nenr the window; nfid there was no
body of a murdered man upon tho llonr,
nor any blood or other trace of him. The
room wns precisely as U had been before
the lawyer came.
In the midst of nn nnlmnted dusciisslon
at Mrs. Prowltt's table next morning, of
the strange crime, one of tho boarders,
who had nlrcady breakfasted and gone out,
rushed back with a paper, which, under
display head lines, told of the brutal mur
der of Abel Christiansen, one of the city's
noted lawyers. It detnlled how he had
been sitting In the study nt his home on
the avenue, going over some valuable pa
pers In the matter of a vast estate In liti
gation. The murderer had entered through
a window, had crept upon Mr. Christiansen
under cover of a Japanese screen that
stood behind his chair, and hnd struck
him to the heart with a dngger. Tho ns
sntHln.who had escaped with all the papers,
was supposed to be one of tho heirs of tho
property and one of the most dangerous
criminals of the slums.
About 10 o'clock on this same morning,
the little old mnn who hnd brought the
Japanese screen appeared at No. K3, say
ing thnt Mr. Mulford had sent him for It.
"I don't know that I ought to lot you
have It," said Mrs. l'rowltt.
"Why not?" nhked the little old man,
with a queer twlnklo of his unbllnded eye.
"There was a terrible murder on the
avcruin Inst night by a man who stabbed
a lawyer from behind n Japanese screen,
and I nnd ouo of my lodgers snw the vis
Ion of a man come from behind Mr. Mul
ford's screen nnd kill n strnngo old mnn
who hnd come ns Mr. Mulford's friend."
"It Is certainly remarkable." snld the lit
tle old man, winking his blind eve: "but
you certainly won't keep Mr. Mulford's
screen Just because you saw a vision?"
"(lo up for It, then, for I won't touch It."
said Mrs. Prowltt. "I will be clad to have
the terrible thing out of my house. If I
wasn't afraid of It, I would not let you
have It "
When the little old mnn reappeared, car
rying the screen, she said:
"If I could seo how there could be nny
connection between this screen and tho one
on the avenue, I would Jteep you hero and
send for the police."
"I don't tee what posslhle connection
thero could be," said tro little old man,
ducking his head sldewise, and squinting
nt her quizzically. "It I could, T wouldn't
ask you for the screen. Hut I will nsk Mr.
Mulford, nnd If there is. of courso I'll come
mound and tell you. lly tho way, he bays
von need not keep tho room for him any

ray speaking to some Mo members last

Is In striking contrast to tho elegant lan

characteristic ot nearly all tho other club

The Outlook: No ono ever succeeded n
that limitless Hold of "anything." "Some
thing" is the foundation of every success.
And thnt foundation must bo built on each
day: the structure must accumulate In
form, In strength, In dcllnltcnesa of pur
pose. In symmetry, In beauty. No life can
bo n success unless these elements enter
Into It, aro its controlling principles.
Success with some Is construed as fame
spelled with a cupttnl. Success Is that
mastery of forces within and without
which permits of tho evolution ot the gift,
or the talent, that innrks each man apart
from Ids fellows. Tl.o measure of success
depends upon the degree of mastery of de.
tails, the udnpting ot the whole nature to
do the work undertaken, the compelling
of every experience to be a light that will
light tho vvuy to perfection, whether the
work done Is that of lovo or compulsion,
