VAUTREAU THE VAMPIRE.
TIio person distinguished by this picas,
ant poubritjut't was a picture and bric-A-bntc
dealer, whose dark, dusty, over-crowded
little shop in the Hue tie Provence was well
known, some fifteen years ngo, to every
artist and (iilletanle in "Paris.
At the back w.-u an olllce, still dingier
than the shop, where at any time, between
the hours of 10 a.m. and C p.m., the pro

a high desk, immersed in figures, lie was
a b:u'helor, on tho wrong side of sixty;
small and spare and dry in person, imper

tho father of the "Bourgeois (lentil,

a good deal ot money, and being of an
obliging disposition, lie lent it to his
friends, and in return for the accommoda

ranged from fifty per cent, upwards. His
clients were for the most part brethren ol
the brush, though there were not a few men
of letters, rising doctors, and barristers
among them. Talent was his security, lie

whether a young man had a future, and his

It is true that his enemies those malic

generally came to grief in the long-run,
and that more than one promising young
artist who had mortgaged to him time,
talent, and prospects had ended miserablv,
bankrupt in all. But such Blander M.

His shop, as has been said, was in the
Kuc de 1'rovenee, but the appartmcnt
which he had occupied for inure than
twenty years was on the Left Bank, in the
Hue St. .lactates, that" long unlovely street"
which leads from the tiiuitiur des Kcoha
to the Obscrvatoirc.
Here, and here alone, the money-lender
was known by his real name, which was
Jules Bdiault. He had assumed the other
as a noiH-ilf-gucrre when first lie began
business. His unsociable habits, and tho
mystery attaching to his occupation, made
him suspected by his fellow-lodgera of bo.

drew back for her to piL-s into the room.
The money-lender had hastily moved the
lamp, so that the light fell full upon his
visitor's features as. she entered, leaving hid
own in shadow.
"Uncle, I am Edmcc," she said, and ap
preached him shyly, holding out two little
gloved hands, and looking up into his fact
anxiously, wistfully, with a mixture of hope
and fear. He looked at her in return as il
she were a ghost; and, indeed, she seemed

" Yes, by my lather, and afterwards by

proud light in her eyes which her uncle

but the world will hear of him some day."
" Well, it may, if he makes noise enough ;
but it he is timid or modest he may possi.
bly end as many a ' genius ' lias before him,
by dying in a garret."
To that she made no 'ejily, and there was
silence till Francoiso entered to lay the
cloth. M. Itenault had uiken to dining at
homo of bile, having the dinner sent in
from a neighboring restaurant.
"Have you been down stairs to Inquire
for letters, Francoiso?" Edmee asked, as
she began to collect her painting materials.
" I wont this morning "
" But something may have come since."
" Well, nmm'zello, your legs arc younger
than mine," the old housekeeper answered
bluntly, giving the cloth a flap before she
spread it. Edmee laughed.
"Very true; I will, go myself," she said
pleasantly, and left the room.
"Always asking for letters nonsense,"
grumbled Francoiso, under her breath;
"and who does she expect to hear from, I
want to know ? "

found it impossible to recur to the subject,

"But to-morrow to-morrow evening I
will tell him all," she resolved.
