ALGERNON UNO THE WIDOW
"Slt' dow.n Jftfinielech, sit down, and
make yourself "happy," Algernon Spank
er, jrrandson of the once well-known
I-ady Gay Spanker, said to- a gentleman
-of an eastern cast of features, as he put
own the last photograph of Lena de
'Courthose, the celebrated ballerina of
the Fantastic theater, on which he had
brn gazing rapturously. '"What can 1
do for you?"
" 'Sit down!' ' exclaimed Mr. Abime
lech, though he suited the action to the
'Word; "and 'what can you do for me?'
"Well, I never! You are a cool one. 'Do
for me!' You've pretty well done for
me already. Here, look at these, and
the ringletted gentlemen began to push
a set of very much ringed fingers into
the breast pocket of an excellently fit
ting frock coat. 'Do for me!' "
"Don't you produce those old accept
ances of mine again, or I'll snatch them
out of your hand and burn them in the
gas stove!" Algernon Spanker ex
claimed. "Every time you come here
you keep pulling them out of your pock
et ana waving them oeiore my eyes,
ana then pushing them back in your
pocket again. Soon they will be worn
out, thank goodness, and then your last
claim on me will be gone. Have a peg
and a cigarette. They'll do you good.
That's what you want."
"No. I don't. I want 10,000."
"That all. Don't you wish you may
get it? I mean 'them.' "
"I do. You got it I mean 'them. "
"X- didn't. I got 3,5300 fifty dozen of
awful champagne that made my friends
curse the hour of my birth, a. picture
that looked like a Rubens and a spav
ined horse. The rest is all for interest
and 'xpenses' and 'renewals. Oh, lord!
2 suppose we must 'do' another."
"You won't do me. I'm a-going before
the court. I'm not going to be kept out
of my money any longer. I want it, and
I mean to have it some of it, anyhow."
"How are you going to get it? I have
no. got any money. This flat is hired
furnished. I've got nothing except my
"watch and your old spavined horse, who's
out otr grass somewhere. You can have
these if you like."
"You've got some prospects, I 'ear,"
Abimclech said, with an oleaginous
smile. "Very fine prospects, very nice
prospects Indeed. Lady Tiptoft, your
grandmother, is S4, and she's got a nice
little bit "
"With twelve sons, caqh having
twelvo sons of his own. I'm one of Them.
As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man
with seven wives." Algernon quoted
lightly and appropriately.
"Oh, shut up for 'eaven's sake! But
you've got other -prospects. What about
"Oh, Mrs. Washfish! Ah! Yes. There's
& prospect!- Eh?''
"I should think there was. She just
adores the ground you put your patent
leathers on. Y6u'll ha-.e to marry her.
She's worth a million. Then you can '
pay them acceptances. You must marry I
"I'm afraid-I must. I really am. Oh.
lord, what will all the girls say? Let
me see. There's Laura and Dora, and
Kitty, and and Lena de Courthose and
"Never mind them. You can think
about them after you have hooked Mrs.
"I want some ready money to go dn
with, and the engagement shall be a
precious long one. 'Mother, I'm too young
to marry," " Algernon burst out singing.
"Oh, do be sensible! Xcver mind about
Tur bid fifth-rate music hall songs. You
""'.nt some ready money? How are you
S"'ng to get it? And to pay me?"
Algernon thought for a moment. Then
ddenly ho said: "I'll tell you. Hand
Ver those acceptances."
"Not mo. AVhat do you take me for?"
"Hnd them over. Have you got any
blank ones in your pocket?"
"Rather. It's my business. "What are
you up to now? You are so sharp that
3 don't know where I am."
" "I'll show you. Out with the blank
ones. Out with the fountain pen ,and
'Ink your pretty fingers. Go ahead. Do
what I tell you. "Write what I teli you,
and I'll sign. Fire away."
Mr. Ablmelech did ' fire away at the
lifitsomo Algernon's dictation, while in
terjecting as he did so, "Oh! I say. You
do know something. You are a wonder.
.And connected with the nobility, too"
(for all the world as if no one connected
with the nobility could be a wonder, or
have any brains in his head.)
"Got them all down, Bimmy?" Alger
non asked, after the bill discounter had
followed his suggestions. "Every one
of them, eh?"
"AH of them. One for 5,500, another

for 7,500, the other for 7,000."
"Right you are. Now let me sign
them," which Algernon did, while Mr.
Abimelech groaned In admiration of his
young client's genius, Vand there you are.
Now hand over my acceptances, give me
yours for" 10,000, and then take me out
to the Carlton and give me a nice little
luncheon and a bottle o the best. See,

"So you'll think when I have explained
myself more fully after lunch. Come
on, we'll have a cab."
About a weok or so later Blanche Wash
fish, widow, pasty-faced, aetat 54, and
stout, sat in her gorgeous saloons (thisMs
the only word possible for describing'
them) in Fitz Plantagenet Square, with
a look of sepulchral solemnity and gloom
upon her face. " ' "
"He hasn't been hero for ten whole
days," she was musing now, as she laid
down Fashion's Hand Glass the last up-
to-date paper, in which she had been
reading some interesting instructions as
to making gruel for babies. 'Not for ten
whole days. Oil, whatever has lecome
of my handsome Algernon! Is it those
horrid chorus girls or that dreadful 'dan
soonse,' or has he got locked up? He is
so wild. Or have his creditors got hold of ,
him at last? Ho said they soon would.
I think I'll take a cab and go and see his
grandma. Lady Tiptoft. She spoke to me
the other night and said it was very
wet. So condescending! P'r'aps she'
would let mo go iiUo her house."
But at this moment a gorgeous flunky
entered the room, and advancing with
an air of gravity suitable to an Arch
bishop, held out a gold salver with a
canTv)n it, and on the card was in
scribed, "Mr. Marks Ablmelech, Finan
cier," with, written in pencil above this
instructive statement, the words "Very
mrgent. Re Mr. Algernon spanker."
"Oh!" Mrs. "Washficsh gasped, "Oh!
They've been and taken him. Oh, my
poor heart! Oh, Algernon! Show him
up, Montgomery" to the footman, "show
him up at once. Stop! Montmorency.
Do you think the gentleman would like
anything to drink?"
But the footman's look was of so shock
ed a character that Mrs. Washfish did
ont pursue the subject any further, but
let the outraged flunky depart while med
itating if he could possibly remain longer
in a house where the mistress had so i
little knowledge of the doings of good
society. A mometn later Mr. Ablmelech
stood before that mistress, bowing with
an air of eastern gravity. "Madam," he
said, "I come on a sad mission, a very
sad one." and he waged his head so that
his ringlets shook in the air and emitted
a lovely smell of- hair oil. "Our dear
young friend has been "
"Not arrested for his debts?" Mrs.
Washfish shrieked. "Not that. Oh don't
say that! We are engaged I mean we
very likely should have been; wc are
half engaged already. Oh. let us save
him! I'll do anything pay half my for
tune If wanted. What will his grand
ma say? A lady of title."
"It's sad, madam very sad. Such a
nice gentleman, but so wild and reso
luteI should say dissolute," and Mr.
Abimclech made a dab at his eyes with
a red pocket handkerchief.
"I'm going to faint," Mrs. Waphfish ex
claimed. "Oh, save him! How much Is
it? Quick! What police station have
they got him in?"
"It hasn't come to that, mum, yet. But
it will, unless "
"I'nless what? Oh, do be quick!"
"His creditors mum. have given these
into my hands for collection. But business-is
business. They've got to be paid.
We've, all got wives of our own." speak
ing as though this statement was nec
essary to prevent any misconception of
ihf idontiiiof; of tho various ladies. "It's
' very sad."
i "How much?" Mrs. Washfish said
again. "I'll pay them if it takes the last
I peny Mr. Washfish made in the busi-
ness" (it had been a rag and bone one).
"He mustn't suffer. I love him and he
i loves me. I know he does."
4 I'm sure he does. mum. He has told
me so often." said Mr. Abimelech, think
ing that this good and true woman mer
ited this piece of comfort, oven if she
never got anything else from the grace
less scampshe loved. V
But she did do so. SheNjot a husband
wTTo knew where his bread would be
well buttered, and sugared, too. Mr.
Abimelech pot his te nthousand pounds !
paid, and Algernon Spanker got his ten '
thousand pounds, to, as Tie said, "go on j
! with till he was married." So everybody ;
fas satisfied, which isn't always the
case in this world. The King:.
COUNT WALDERSEE'S ESCAPE.
Some particulars have been furnished
to me of the escape of Count Waldersee,
which I spoke of a fortnight ago, from
an Ignited ADsethaus at I'eKin. inis
dwelling had been set up in a narrow
courtyard, sheltered from the north wind,
which is so severe ther. The fire that
heated the Asbesthaus broke out in the
palace, and the count must have per
ished, but for a French soldier on suard
in the courtyard. This man had tho in
telligence not to wait to ie relieved, but
threw down his ride, and. -rushing to
where he knew the commander-in-chief
slept, found him nearly asphyxiated, tore
him out of bed. and saved him through
the window. The oniccr who gives me

French went. Gen. Voyron at once made
the German marshal understand that his
command-in-chief as officer of highest
rank could only be understood as honorary-
Salutes were lavished, but Voy
ron remained master of his corps, as be
fore the arrl-al of Waldersee. Seeing
this, the marshal-count made, very
gracefully, a virtue of necessity, and pro
fessed to discharge rather a diplomatic
tha na military mission. He made him
self generally agreeable, talked of the
Paris he had known and adored In his
younger days, of the pretty women ho
danced with at court bails, repeated the
droll mots he had heard in the green
rooms of the theaters, and had a lively
recollection of Mile. Schneider's sayings
and doings. When the cduht served Prus
sia as a military attache at the Rue dc
Lille she had been going on from tri
umph to triumph at the Varietes.
Coutn Waldersee In his honorary char
acter saw a great deal of the Japanese
commander, and lost no opportunity to
form a sure judgment on the military
qualities of the troops under him. He
seta that he could not have thought it
possible for troops to be so active in fa
tigue duty and at the same time to keep
themselves so beautifully neat. Their
courage he thouph of a better quality
thaif that of Europcan5. The lMlcr want".
ed the stimulus of brandy, schnapps,
cheering, or shouting to rush to kill or
to be killed. Japanese bravery entirely
depended on volition, and a passionate
desire to stand highest in the eyes of
Europeans nnd Asiatics. But they want
ed coolies to carry heavily laden knap
sacks, and .if extremely muscular, seemed
to want stamina. The count foresaw that
the Americans in a probable struggle be
tween Japan nnd Russia would rtand
