, Lorrimer, leaving Mrs. Tregarthen, felt
like an enijieror who has reeoii'itiered a rc-U-llious
province, lie was one of those
pv. .pie who love success and huto failure,
apart from consequences. He wanted what
ho wanted exactly that or nothing and
if he had dug for water and struck gold,
like tho famous Mr. Dow, ho would have
felt aggrieved. Ho had gone out to secure
Miss Churchill, and tho difficulties which
had been cast in his way only made her
services the more valuable to hope for, and
More precious when secured. ''The boys,"
ho said to himself, rubbing his hands
with vivacity, "will bo at the Hulibit
Hutch. They shnll have the news at
once to begin with. "
When ho alighted in tho Strand and dis
charged the coachman that person was as
tonished at the liberality of the payment
Lorrimer tendered. Tho manager swag
gered into the little room, beaming all
over; but there was no one to meet him
txcept the poet, who sat dejected, with his
folded arms upon the table.
"I've seen her, Marsh," cried Lorrimer,
extending both hands. " And what's
moro, my boy, she has consented to appear
"That is good news," said tho poet,
mournfully. " I congratulate you. Have
you made any definite arrangement with
her. Have you helped her i"
" To everthing the heart cau wish for :"'
said Lorrimer. " I'eli.-a.-ies, wine, money,
credit, and a coral for the baby. It was
the eoral that did the tri k, my boy."
'The the Laby f said Olaj-sh, w,th a
J"e-e,"sftiJ Lorrimer, nibbing his chin
with the palm of his hand and regarding
the pJct with a half-reflection " his look.
"A baby. I suppose it's all right. To
tell you the truth, ilar-ih, I don't inquire
into these matters. It's a question of
I rinciple with me.
The poet stretched out a hand and struck
down heavily on the gong which stood be
fore him. and. on the appearance of tho
waiter, demanded brandy in a manner al
"What's the matter.'"' asked Lorimer.
"You are out of sorts, dear boy."
' I em hip;ed." said the poet, with a
sigh. '"I am tired of the whole show, Lor
rimer, and 1 wi.-h that the drum would
bang and the fiddle squeak no more, I
should like to see the curtain ring down on
the silly figures in the mi Idle of the piece,
but I luii't sit it out. I suppose, like the
rv-t of u. though I am sick of it, and
bored to death.'
' "Ah:"' said Lcrrimer. "y-m're yung,
cVar boy, and that's why you feel like- that.
IVUn I wns your age I felt older than
Methusal-m. By-and-by you'll K-pn to
want to stick, and you'll get to like the
piece very well."'
There are few thing3 more offensive
to a young man than to be reminded of his
youth by a senior. And for a poet and a
mill of fashion, who had just expressed tho
yearnings of his soul .(with what he felt to
be a very pretty conversational style), to
fin 1 hiiiLvif compared with this florid vul
gariaii, who call J Methuselah Methusalein,
was more than cummonly galling.
I.rrinii-r bad never felt what he felt.
Tue thing was imiossible.but it was useless
to argue, and the young man sat in a
mournful and dignified silence, and sipped
his brari'ly and water, until the other
members of the conclave dropped in ono
by one, and Lorrimer began to expatiate
upon his own good fortune and tho great
things he was going to do for lli.ss
" Look here," said the manager, poking
at the rotund figure of the mau of the cor
ner with his walking-cane. "Here's a
chance for you- You used to want to
write a poetical comedy, you know."
" I trust," said the man in tho comer,
' that we are not alout to enter on a course
of recrimination. Why should I bo re
minded of the follies of the past! I have
heard it whispered that a middle aged,
florid, fat man, who shall be nameless, had
once a desire to play Romeo."
"N'o more of that, Hal, and thou lovest
me," sain Lorriinor. "l"ut if you cm
write a poetical comedy, my boy, here's
the women to write up to."
"Sir," said the man in the corner, "I can
write a poetical comedy ns well as any
whale in Arctic waters can dance a sara
band." ' "Wi:!," cried Lorrimer, "the man who
writes a fii-it-ratu poetical comedy for
Miss Churchill has made his fortune. I
know that much."
"Good afternoon, gentlemen," said the
poet, rising wearily. There wa9 some
protest against his going, but he pleaded a
non-existent engagement and got away.
He turned disconsolately out of the Strand
into Cutheriue street, and after many iu
'leterniinate windings, found himself at
the head of the dismal thoroughfare in
"which Mrs. Tregarthen had lodgings, lie
stood, a full minute in hesitation, and ono
twJ hurrying passengers hustled him.
At lust he pulled his hat over his eyes,
i. ' out Wn bands with a little
""eu.ler, and walked homo.
Mr t7 uru'ru"J' of tho day on which
Lorrhn 8, H T enterwl W "
Lorrimer called, and owed her two ur
three newspajK-r parugraplw
"The Kume is afoot already, madam "

hing to be glad that you threw me e,v"r
last time. It has excited
anl intwent, don't you see. Only-you
mustn't do it again, you know. My credit
and reputation are at Rtake,"
' 8he told him wearily thnt he
might rely uion her, but she took
uo interest in the preliminary pull's
of which Lorrimer was so proud.
Bhe glanced at them and put tlitni aside
with so-much languor that tho manager
took fright a little.
! "Upon my word," he said, "I'm afraid
jou're not well. Or ele," he added, si
lently, "you re anything but sweet upon
"I am very well," she answered.
"Be candid with me," urged tho mana
ger, "I may rely upon you" Now, nmy
You may rely upon me," she said; lidd
ing, with more vivacity, "I could not re
pay your kindness so poorly ns to lisap
point you a second time."
" Thero aro managers," said Lorrimer,
who in a case like this would take advan
tage of youth and inexperience. Hut I
know better; for my own sake I know
better. I offer yon such terms, to begin
with, that you can't improve your condi
tion by running to anybody else. Ilefore
now, mndnm, I have galvanized tho town
into the temporary acceptance of a Duller.
Histrionic genius, with Lorrimer behind
it, is guaranteed success. Wo shall take
up a permanent residence on the grounds of
Thomas Tiddler, nmdam, and shall pick up
gold and silver. Hut will you forgive me
for hinting at it (you must stud', you
must work there is nothing to bo done
" You shall not have reason to find fault
with me in that respect," said Mrs. Tro
irarthen. "I shall lo willing to rehearso
'as much as you plenso."
Tho prospect inspired her with inward
reluctance. There is n charm in the life
of a successful actress which any woman
can recognize for herself, even without the
aid of exerience. But Miss Churchill
had her experience already, and n stage
career no longer showed all rose-color to
her. The stnge-door haunter, the green
room haunter, the insolent puppy in the
stage-box or the dress-circle, the coarse
tonguod stnge-mnnnger, tho liani.shed
Duke, who, when on country tour con
trived to smell of onions, gin,
and stale tobacco all at once;
the tnttle-tattle and scandal nnd
envy of tho women, nnd the lidless
dragon eye of professional jealousy among
the nu n, had all combined to dismay nnd
disgust her. She knew that many of tho
miseries that she had endured aforetimo
would bo modified. Lorrimer was an
amazing improvement on tho traveling
manager, for instance. She could rely
upon him, not merely for the payment of
her dues, but for manly protection if she
needed it; but at its best the inner life of
a theater was not her taste, and she looked
forward to a resumption of her .old pur
suit with enthusiasm. Arthur would know
of it, too, but there was nothing in the
world which could iucrease the
distance between herself and him.
She even thought, nsshe looked everywhere
for excuses, that her resumption of her old
life mi'ht help to bring peace to him In
completing their estrangement. He would
be aide to despise her so heartily that he
would eea.se to regret her. There was no
form of mental self-torture which she ne
glected, and none seemed to afford her
When she had been in her new quarters
n day or two, and had provided herself
with a promising-nurse for the baby, she
sat down and wrote n letter, which had for
its effect the return of her younger sister.
The sensible child had been sent away
to a small country lxvarding-sehool,
and the poor lady had expended almost her
last jewel in providing her with that tem
porary refuge from those stern ills of life
which had faced them both in their latest
lodging. She had hoped to make sonic
sort of refuge permanent for her, and to
that end she had written n novel, and had
sent it to two or three publishers, only to
find it rejected by them all.
"Oh! "cried the sensible child, behold
ing the baby for the first time, " what a
beauty! Oh, Clara, whose is it.'"
" It is mine, my dear," said the mother,
smiling sadly ns she bent over the infant.
"Isn't it Arthur's as well .'"asked the
" Yes, answered the wretched runaway.
It Ls Arthur's and mine' " A tear fell on
tho dimpled hand her own supported, and
she wiped it furtively away.
" She is like Arthur," said the child, -examining
the baby with the look of a con
noisseur. "Her eyes are like Arthur's.
Clara, what makes children lite their
fathers and mothers? Am I like p npa? "
"Yes, dear," said the mother, bending
over the child and feigning to arrange some
trifle of its dres to hide her eyes, "you are
very like him."
"Clara, the child asked, suddenly,
"didn't you like Gorbay better than Lon
don?" " Yes. dear much better."
" I didn't like the last place," said tho
child. " It wua very nasty, and the old
woman was na.sty. This is better; but I
like Gorbay better, and Tregarthen is
lovely. Shall we go back to Tregarthen?
Why do the people call Arthur the same
name as tho Island'
Her sister had not the heart to forbid her
these painful themes, but allowed her to
ramble on, and answered her when she
could. In tho midst of the child's chatter
Lorriinor was announced.
"I have brought un agreement, ma
dam," he said, after a fatherly saluta
tion. " I have had it drawn up by a
lawyer, and before you sign it I should ad
vise you to consult a legal adviser on your
own side. There's nothing like having this
sort of matter fairly understood nt tho be
ginning, and this littlo document binds us
both for three years. So, you see, it's a
question of Home importance, and you'd
better be sure that your interests are prop
erly looked after. It's in duplicate, you
observe; and ullthnt is to be done is for
me to sign your copy and you to sign
mine. Now, when can you see your law
yer" " Let me see tho document, Mr.
Lorrimer," sho answered; nnd he bunding
it to her, she rend it through. "I
think I understand it well enough," she
baid then; "and I am sure I can trust you,
" Madame," said Lorriinor, with the con
fidential family-adviser manner strongly
marked, "trust nobody. Nobody. I
know no more fatal habit than that of
Mrs. Tregarthen smiled quite cheerfully
the first time for many a day.
" I quite understad the agreement," she
said; "and I tun willing to bind myself
by it. I think the terms you offer very
fuvoruble, sir, and I hope you will not havo
cause to repent them."
" I have but seen you in three charac
ters, madam." returned the manager,
approaching her, pen in hand; "but
there are not many men in the world who
know their business better than Goorgo
Augustus Lorrimer; and 1 nm pretty sure
of my ground, madam- pretty sure of my
At the close of this spoe"h he handed her
tho pen with a bow, and she signed her
nume to the document which lay before her.
Lorrimer drew up a chair to the tnblo,
seated himself, and assuming a nair of
gold-rimmed eye-glasses, which wore of no
w men to bun, signed tho duplicate like a
stage emperor Binning away a province,

In spite of herself Mrs. Tivgiirthen
blushed scarlet: but Lorrimer, with an
unctuous, stagey chuckle, stooped and pat
ted the child's head.
' No, my dear" he said, with a grand
futherly intonation. There is no intention
of that sort in your sister's mind, I am
suri. And for my part," continued Lorri
mer, suddenly quitting tho grandfutherly
attitude and manner, and bowing jauntily
at Mrs. Tregarthen, "I am quite a resolved
old bachelor, nnd not oven Miss Churchill's
inestimable charms could persuade mo to
the sacrifice of liberty.'1 He saw vaguely
that this stylo of waggery was scarcely
suited to tho lady's taste, and beeamo dis
concerted. "Thenigh 1 am sure," ho
added, by way of atouciuent for a possible
blunder, " that if any charms could piere-e
a thrice-armed he'art Miss Churchill owns
This being no better received than tho
former compliment, Lorrimer bt-eaino al
most sheepish for n moment, but Npeedily
recovering himself, departed, with the
stately grace and cordiality of a beau of
the old school, returning immediately, with
n legal air, to secure the document signed
by Mrs. Tregarthen, the which he folded
and pocke'tod, with a business-like frown,
and then relapsing into smiles again bowed
himself away finally.
"That is a very funny gentlemen," said
Miss Lina gravely.
" He is a very good man, my darling,"
returned her sister, "and bos been very
kind to both of us."
She was so unworldly that no touch of
suspicion was in her miinl when she thought
of Ixirrimer and the baby's coral. It is
probable that she would have conceived
thnt devire to be no less than diabolical if
she had pierced its meaning, but the man
nger was blowu out with pride at his own
knowledge of human nature whenever ho
rcmembeTe'd the expedient.
" Lorrimer," he would say, wagging his
jovial head, " you know your way about,
dear lxy. It was the coral that did the
trick. You arc a bachelor, Lorrimer, but
you aro not unacquainted with feminint)
But, after all, there had been much
genuine kindness mixed up with his busi
ness motives, nud a woman might be
trusted to find out 03 much and to be
grateful for it.
When he had Miss Churchill's signature
at the foot of his agreement, nnd the docu
ment was once in his pocket, Lorrimer ex
ulted and leanied. He went about all
day to places where he was likely to meet
the men he wanted shady old public
houses which have outlived their reputa
tion, now, and no longer give shelter to
dramatic critics and, drawing one of
them aside when found, would hum a
secret in his ear, a secret confided
as a particular favor to him alone,
and would then hio away to an
other, with unfailing industrious men
dacity, liming his twigs for the
British public. Next morning, by the
separate influences of the gentlemen whom
Mr. I.orriiner had primed, the whole world
was made aware of the facts that an en
gagement bad been entered into by the
Miss Churchill, who hael onfe disapjyiinted
London playgoers, to appear at the Mirrer
Theater, and that she had entereel into a
three years' contract with the manager of
that favorite house.
But Lorrimer did more than this, for ho
was a muster in his way, and could puff as
well as any mnnnlhe. Artful paragraphs
went elown to tho piovincial papers (which
were not so well off for London news as
Micy are now, whim every one of them b
l vel with the great journals of tho capi
tal), and these paragraphs were artfully
transplanted to the columns of the metro
jiolitan organs, until the bruit of Miss
Churchill's coming was in nil men's cars.
Lorrimer kept her constantly supplied
with the news of his achievements in this
way, and frightened her more than he
guessed. Every one of tho manager's pre
liminary bangs at the drum sent u nervous
feir through her heart, and she had a pre
monition of failure and disaster. She had
no stage passion to buoy up her sinking
spirits, and the memory of her husband's
sorn for tho business upon which she had
a second time embarked would have made
her run away from tbo enterprise alto
gether but for her own native loyalty and
the thought of her chill and sister. It
was to be all so different, too, from
her actual experiences of tho stago. She
would no longer contrast with the failures
of the provincial theaters, but would have
to move side by side with the best actors of
London and one of its best actresses, ror
Ixjrrimer, in his own phrase, was "going
for the gloves," and was getting together a
picked company. Ho meant to have such
a glare and blare of triumph in London
that when the time camo for the provinces
playgoers should bo on the tiptoe of ex
pectation there, and then, with his one star
and a cheap scratch company, he would
gather in money by tho hatful.
The company Ix-ing once got togotlior,
were rehearsed severely. The pale gentle
woman, young and sad, did not promise
well for the ideal Rosalind of any jniof
them when she first came among them.
But the spirit of tho scene began to lift her,
and when Orlando, even in his frock coat
and tall bat most un-Orlando like was
supposed to have overthrown the boastful
wrestler ami she dropped the meaning
we.rds, " ' You have wrestled well, and
overthrown moro than your own ene
mies,'" tho sweet voice and jwrfect in
tonation lingered on tho player s ears like
music, her figure grew all grace, and her
face all sympathy. Rosalind trod tho
stage in Victorian attire, and the brightest
and tenderest of Shakespeare's conceptions
took concrete form for all who heard and
saw. This triumph was achieved at tho
first rehearsal, and tho report of it raised
expectation high among those who inter
ested themselves in the matter. Ae'tors are
n jealous race, and us a consequence there
is no class of people wlio praise one anomer
so unreservedly; for jealousy is not a
pretty passion, and its owner will gener
ally go out of his way to hide it.
So when Mrs. Tregnrthen's coru-
iM-ers hael once made up their
minds thnt sho would inevitably outshine
them all, they gave her the most unstinted
laudation everywhere, and tho whole
theatrical world got into a ferment alwul
In tho earlier rehearsals tho old stagers
went through their work anyhow, mum
bling inarticulately, and cutting down the
immortal sentences without remorse in
their hurry for the cue, but Rosalind would
not mutilate her lines, and could not, for
her life, gtnk them at all without rfenking
them as thoy ought to bo spoken. It enmo
about, therefore, that from tho central
llguro of tho pio-e a gentle inspiration
shone out to nil tho rest, until
they began to reflect; and the dull
est old stager began to work with
Homethins of his youthful spirit. Lorri
mer saw this and exulted. He worked ns
only a theatrical manager has to work,
entreating, arguing, tiersimding, command-
intr employing sweetest euarnvo art on
Cclia; with more than Chesterfield's polite
ness begging leave to differ with old Adam
or Touchstone on some point of detail; or
touring fourth wild streams of passionate
objurgation upon tho cnriM-ntem. Hu was
ubiquitous, mid seemed, like Ariel in the
storm, to divide and iurn in many places,

cTowdi'd. Tho destiny of tho pit was not
yet decreed, and the most sympathetic and
meist experienced of play-goers and truct
of play-lovers were net scorned. Tho old
sters were there, grave, almost severe, pre
pared to utter judgment. The professional
critics wc in the dress-circle, where they
could really see tho pies.-e and were not
half brained by tho cymbals and
tho cornet in tho eiV?, as they
are in these advanced days. Beauty,
wit, fashion, and old experience

had long since been dressed, and egi'i- in
her nervous terror to fae-e them all mid get
the ordeal over, was led by the triumphant
yet anxious Lorrimer to take a peep at tho
crowded benche's ami tho wide sweep of
the glittering circles. Sho went back to

to think of her part sho discovered that
sho had forgotten her first words. !Sho re

The orchestra was industriously scraping
and blowing its wny to tho final iiiusi. ul

the time of disgrace and despair was near.
The music ceasi'd, the house applauded, a
bell rang thrice, the house applauded
anew, and tho time of disgrace and des
pair was nearer still. In a little time
there camo a tap at her door, and
the call-boy demanded Miss Churchill. Sho
must needs go there was no help for it
She totk a hasty sip of water, and walked
like an automaton to her placo in tho
wings. Colin was there already, and
slipled an unsympathetic arm about her
wuist. in readiness for tho business of the
stage, for they went on twined together
like two of tho three Graces. Tho band
finished its littlo intermediate flourish, nnd
somehow Rosalind was on the stage, with
a sound like tho noise of the sea coming
into her ears, and she was ready to sink
and die. Celia spoke:
"I pray thee, Rosalind, sweet my coz, bo
Tho two women melted apart from their
embrace at this point, and Rosalind stood
alone. There was a pause. It cumo out
afterward that it was no longer than it
well might have been, but to Miss Church
ill'i. heart it was emite a gulf of time.
