Karl Ju::.ped to (.;> feet. ( He iundc a few turns u; and down the Studio n:.d then changed his velvet studio Ja-'ket f r a greatcoat and pluntred out < f li.ors into the storm. A brisk w: through the snow and j gather!' • darkness revived him, and he turned hack to the studio with a clearer brain, llis old servant, llein rich. not him at the doer. "Monsieur, the gentleman has re turned and is dressing," the old man said in an awestruck whisper. "1 think he is the devil," he added vin dictively. Ilelnrich had l>een terrified when Millar, returning to the studio in Karl's absence, had taken possession with the utmost coolness of Karl's guest cham ber and proceeded to change to the evening clothes which had been sent to him there from the tailor's. Unwilling to meet the man again, Karl hurried Into his own room and locked the door. He did not emerge again until long after Millar had completed his dress ing and had left the studio. Karl tried desperately to drive thoughts of Olga from his mind. But the terrible flame of passion which had grown from the tiny, burled spark of boy love that lurked In his heart, under the sinister suggestion of Millar, tortured him. He could hardly keep himself from rushing off to Olga's house In advance of the ball to beg her not to proceed with her design of bringing him and Elsa together, to tell her that he loved her and that in all the world there lived no other woman for him. Desperately at last he re membered his promise to see Mlml, and he hurried out and made his way afoot to the tattered little building In which she lived, hoping there to find forget fulness. But go where he would the haunting black eyes, the cyulcal smile, that even, persistent voice, the insidious suggestions of Mil lar, the devil, followed him and would not be shaken off. In a state of mind even more des perate than that of Karl, Olga went home with Herman. Their journey was as silent as their carriage was si lent Herman was absorbed in con templation of the information Millar had given him regarding business af fairs in Russia, in which he was heav ily Interested. Olga was torn by con flicting emotions. The rnnn had roused In her the dormant love for Karl which she believed buried forever. She could not deny to herself now, as she had denied for six years, that sbe loved him. She knew now that during those six years it had been to Karl, not to Herman, thut she had turned for sympathy, for understanding, and the knowledge maddened her. Deep In her heart Olga exalted duty before every other virtue, and the duty of a loyal wife before every other duty. She could feel now the crum bling away of all her principles, her convictions, the Ideals sbe had cher ished. She had believed for six years that she had given to Herman every bit of her love and loyalty, and now she was forced to the self confession that she had lived a lie even to her self. She loved Karl. But away from Millar's Influence, the resolved that she would yet bat tle with and overcome the terrible im pulses be had aroused. She would go ahead with the ball. She would bring Karl and Elsa together. She would make the artist love the beautiful, ac complished girl whom she herself had ■elected for his bride. She would make him happy; make them both hap py, even if it meant that she must crush out her own hopes of happiness In doing so. "That is a very remarkable man, that friend of Karl's," Herman said after they had driven some time in silence. "Yes. He Is very disagreeable," Olga replied. "Oh, I don't thiuk so!" Herman pro tested. "To me he seemed very agree able. Where does lie come from? He seems to have been everywhere and to know everybody." "And everything." assented Olga wearily. "I cannot tell you anything about htm. Karl met him a year ago at Monte Carlo." "I am glad you persuaded him to come tonight," nerman said, "ne is going o give me information that will be of great value to me." Olga was on the poiut of telling Her man all about the terrible sermon the stranger had preached to them, of his wicked Insinuations and of her terrible dread, but she checked herself. Her man seemed fatuously delighted by Millar, and she could not bring herself to talk to liiin now. They continued the ride in silence until home was reached. Herman and Olga occupied one of the finest residences In Park lane. It had been built by a wealthy noble man and completed with a princely dis regard for expenditure. It stood in the center of a considerable park, sur rounded by trees and gardens. Preparations were already going for ward for the ball when Herman and Olga reached home. Decorators were putting the finishing touches on the magnificent ballroom. Florists were banking ferns and potted plants along the stairs and halls. All was bustle and preparation. Herman delightedly went forward and examined every de tail of the work. Olga, who ordinarily would have taken the same keen inter est in the preparations, turned wearily away and went to her own room. She dined alone under the plea of a bead ache and did not again appear until the guests began to arrive In the even ing. "You look very beautiful, my dear," Herman said to her when she entered tbe drawing room. Iler mood bad changed. Her eyes seemed unnaturally bright She her self could not tell what bad caused tbe change. When she reached home she bad looked forward with shuddering aversion to ber second meeting with Millar. Now she was Impatient for him to arrive. She wanted to talk to him. to bear again tbe soft, persuasive voice, tbe Insidious harmony of his words that seemed to frame for ber the thoughts Bhe . t.e was bright, alive, wiuy, cnarm i: _• i:. the beauty of her fresh color, !.'r glorious hair, her splendid figure : -t ■ ff ' hi'iiuiiigly in an evening gown <: v. lii'e - :ti:i brocade. She stood at the I'. nl of the winding stairway lead it _• to the drawing room when Millar en me. The man seemed more suggestive of malignant purpose in his evening clothes than • had been In the after noon. I:m. icui.ite in every detail of bis dress, his very grooming suggested wickedness. lie walked slowly up the stairs, feasting his eyes on Olga as she stood with hand extended to meet him. "Madame, I am charmed to greet you again." lie said. "I congratulate you on the wonderful transformation, nnd I need not ask in what way it was effected." "It may be that I owe It to you, mon sieur." Olga replied gayly, her eyes frankly meeting those of Millar as he looked at her with admiration he did not attempt to disguise. "I trust we are soon to havo the pleasure of seeing Karl again." "lie will be here—later, I believe." Olga answered. "Meanwhile, mon sieur. 1 am going to ask you to make yourself agreeable to some of my guests." "Madame, 1 can only make myself disagreeable to them," he replied cyn ically. "It is not they whom I came to see and entertain." "But you must be entertained now," Olga said. "Soon I hope we may talk." "We 6hal! talk," Millar assured her, bowing. He passed on to greet nerman and was presented to others in the rapidly growing throng. Wherever he went Olga heard exclamations, usually of surprise or dismay, from her women guests, and the number that Invaria bly gathered around him at first rapid ly diminished. He seemed bent on making himself disagreeable, as he had promised. One elderly spinster to whom he was presented greeted h'm with an affect ed lisp, drooping eyes and an Inane re mark about the terrible cold. "Yes. mademoiselle, your teeth will chatter tonight—on the dresser." To another, a portly lady who af fected the airs of a girl, he said in his most silken tones: "My dear inadame, I must tell you of a splendid remedy for getting thin." "I dou't want to get thin!" the port ly one replied indignantly as she flounced awa.v from him. Olga waited impatiently for an op portunity to withdraw with Millar Into a secluded place, where she might listen to him while he told her the things that she did uot dare tell herself. The evening had grown late, however, and Karl had arrived before she could get away from ber guests. Karl had tried to avoid a tete-a-tete with Olgn. and she took the first op portunity of introducing him to Elsa. She rebelled In her sou: now at the thought of their marriage, but hef will drove her to the fulfillment of her purpose, to that extent at least. But it was w-ith a heart torn with jealousy that she watched Karl and Elsa move off together and turned to meet Millar, standing beside ber with his cynical, sinister smile. CHAPTER XII. nrTILS-l BERG was a brilliant, | "i*J vivacious girl, rarely beauti- LjU ful, with lively blue eyes, BBSI chestnut hair and a tall, slen der, willowy figure. The romance and excitement of her meeting with Karl made her seem doubly beautiful, and she gladdened the artist in him, but he helplessly confessed to himself that she made no Impression on his heart Ills thoughts were with Olga, and be was abstracted, almost to the point of rudeness, while Elsa tried to talk with him. "Who is that terribly rude person who seems to be frightening every one?" she asked. "He? Oh, that Is Dr. Millar, a friend of mine," Karl replied. "Pooh! I don't see why every one seoms so afraid of him," Elsa said, with a note of challenge in her tone. "I think I shall meet him just to see if he will make me run." "No, no; don't go near him," Kari begged. "And why not? Has he such a sharp tongue or an evil mind? I can take care of myself." "I don't really think you ought to meet him," Karl said, but he spoke without conviction. He ■dranly yield ed to a curiosity to see what might come of a meeting between Elsa and Millar. "I don't care; I'm going tt> hunt him up," she cried, jumping up and scam pering off. Millar had gone Into on anteroom leading out Into the beautiful gardens. A number of the company had assem bled there as he entered, and it was obvious from the Instant silence which ensued that he had been the subject of their discussion. This seemed to grat ify his cynical humor, and be looked the assembled men and women, society puppets, over with a cynical grin. Elsa was among them, and toward her Mil lar bowed as he said: "I never knew this number of ladles could be so silent. I presume during my absence you have been discussing me kindly." The others did not speak, but Elsa turned boldly to Millar. "Don't flatter yourself that 1 am afraid of you," she said. "I would say to your fnce what these people only dare think. Indeed. I was just going to look for you." "It Is Just as well you nre here. They might discuss you and your approach ing betrothal with Karl." Millar said. "You—you know!" Elsa cried in as tonishment. The others seemed tremendously In terested at the Information Millar had Imparted, and Elsa was embarrassed. She knew the design of her friend Olga in bringing her and Karl togeth er. but she was not aware that it was known to any one else. Millar smiled as he replied: "Of course. They would throw you Into his arms." While the others who overheard laughed at this sally and Elsa blushed furiously, Millar went close to her and said: "I must speak to you alone. I will send these people away. Leave It tc me." Elsa drew away, and there was a si lence In the room. The others began to reel uncomfortable as Millar looked slowly from one to the other of them. One or two essayed conversation, anil his cuttlne. Insolent replies sent them scurry ins from the room. In a few moments only lie and Eisa remained In the apartment. From the adjoining ballroom came the strains of music ami the sound of dancing and bright laughter. Millar looked at Elsa. "Now they are gone," he said. "Are > ■ u not surprised that I did not g i also?" she asked. "You offended u.e. you know, but I stayed because I want to talk with you." "How charming." Millar said, with gentle sarcasm. "Perhaps you know my nickname— Saucy Elsasaid the girl warulngly. "Oh. yes." "Then you should know that your i Chesterfleldian manners embarrass me," Elsa said Impatiently as Millar bowed again before her. "I have se lected you to deliver a most Impudent message to that crowd In there lo calise you are so i>erfectly Impolite." "I am entirely at your disposal, ma demoiselle." "How can I be Impudent, though, when you are so polite to me?" she cried petulantly. "Shall we end the conversation, then ?" "Oh, no; not yet," Elsa cried, embar rassed. Then she went on, with deter ' mination, "When you came In here you said I was the girl they were going to throw Into Karl's arms." "I did." "lsut you did not say that I am the girl who permits herself to be thrown Into Karl's arms. Am I right?" "Yes." "Please sit down," Elsa went on. recovering lier self poise, which the baffling politeness of Millar had dis turbed. lie declined the chair with a gesture, but she Insisted. "I feel much more commanding when 1 stand, and I want every ad vantage," she said. "I want to set you right, and It will bo much easier when you sit down and I stand." Smiling. Millar sat down and looked up at her expectantly. Slightly con fused, she went on: "I don't want people making fun of ine before my face. I know every thing. I>o I make mysel? clear? You "DON'T YOU THINK WE SHOULD LEAVE THE YOUNG PEOPLI TOGETHER?" were kind enough to mention the sub ject and I shall delegate to you the mission of explaining the true facts to those dummies." She grew quite vehement and her cheeks flushed. Millar looked at her admiringly as he said: "Your confidence does me great hou or." "As a rule, I don't take these people seriously," the girl hurried on. "I have no more interest In them or their opinions than I have in last week's newspapers. But I want them all to know that they have not fooled me into marrying Karl. And you all want me to marry him—you all want to throw me into his arms." "Pardon me"— Millar interrupted. But she went on unheeding: "Don't you think I can see through your transparent schemes? But I'll marry him just the same. If he'll have me. Do you understand? I'll marry him." "I do not think you will," Millar said quk'tly. "I tell you I am going to be Karl's wife!" Elsa cried, with emphasis. "Now that you have graced me with your confidence," Millar said, rising, "I feel that I may be quite frank with you. This marriage cannot take place." lie pointed to tho chair be had va cated and smiled. "Now, you tit down, because I am going to ret you right," he said. Wonderiugly, Elsa obeyed. Millar called a servant who was passing and said: "You will find a small red leather case In my overcoat pocket Bring it here." . The servaut went out and he con tinued to Elsa: "1 know the reason of this marriage, but you— you don't know the reason, or"— "Or what?" "Or you don't want to know; hence you are about to consent" "Consent to what?" Elsa cried. "Don't beat around the bush. That Is what I am trying to avoid. I am about to consent to become the wife of a man who loves another woman, and, what Is more, I intend to go on my honeymoon with a man who has an other woman in his heart, who leaves with this other woman everything be should bring to his wife-love, sympa thy, enthusiasm, everything. You see. you did not know me." Millar was unmoved by her vehe ment declaration. As the servant re entered their room and banded him a ■mall red leather case he said: "I did not think this subject could excite you to such a degree." "I don't want any one laughing at me," Elsa protested. "I want them all to understand that I know quite well the way I am voiiig and that I go that | way proud!... iuily conscious of It; ; that I know everything. and yet I ' consent tn be Ills wife." •Why?" Millar asked, opening his little satchel. "I'erauso —because— I —l love him." the girl answered and began to soli. Millar smiled wickedly as he took from the case a dainty lace handker chief and held it toward Elsa. •Tardon me; 1 always carry this with me." he said. "It is my weeping bag. in It is everything a woman needs for weeping." Elsa sobbed and dabbed at her eyes with the handkerchief, not noticing that the man was amused. "1-1 love him," she declared. "And take this also," Millar said, handing her a little mirror, then a powder puff and a tiny stick of rouge. Elsa could not help smiling through her tears at the absurdity of It as she dabbed and dusted her tear stained face, looking at herself In the little mirror, until all traces of her weeping were removed. "So this is the far famed Saucy Elsa," Millar said as he watched her. "No, It isn't," she said rehelliously. "When I came her® tonight I was a young, saucy girl. Now I am a nerv ous old woman. What shall I do?" "Whatever you do you must not be discouraged. You must fight—attack the enemy. Isut lirst of all you must be pretty." "I shall try," Elsa said dolefully. "You must show that woman your teeth. Of course It Is bard for a young girl to light a woman," Millar went on. "You don't possess so many weapous as a married woman who knows love already—who—may I say something Improper?" "Please do." she said, her saudness returning, as she held her bands before her eyes and looked at him through her fingers. "A woman who knows all about love that you have yet to learn." "I understand," she said. "But don't mind that. Listen. There Is not much sentiment In me, but I am a man, and I tell you, little girl, you possess the weapon that will deal the deathblow to the most attractive, the most experienced woman In the world. That weai>on is purity." "Should I listen to all this?" Elsa asked. "You not." Miliar replied promptly, "but listen Just the name. It may help you. And now go dance with Karl. You must conquer. But don't try to be a woman, lie a girl. Don't try to bo saucy." "I don't care to bo saucy, but it Is so original," Klsa suld contritely. "Don't try to be origiual," Millar said earnestly. "Ho yourself. Be modest Bo ashamed of your pure white shoul ders. I.oot at Karl as If you feared he Is trylug to steal you away from girl hood land and show you the way to woman's land. And If any one ever dares to call you saucy agalu tell him you ouce met a gentleman whom you wanted to give a piece of your mind and that you left him with a piece of his mlud. feeling very smakJ Indeed yourself and making him feel as if he were the biggest rascal In the world." Glsa turned and went toward the other room, meeting Karl at t&e door as Millar withdrew behiud a curtain of palms. CIIAPTEU XIII. nrpII.LAIt had played with devll | iVI I Ish Ingenuity ou the tender PRM susceptibilities of Elsa. lie encouraged her in her love for Karl and her determination to win him, evidently with the deliberate pur pose that she should repel the boy whose will he had determined to sub ordinate to his own. Il« watched as a cat watches Its prey the meeting be tween Karl and Elsa after he with drew quietly into the sheltering recess behiud the palms. Karl had been searchlug for her and ■topped, barring her way Into the ball room. "So here you are at last. Miss Elu," be exclaimed. "Yes," Elsa replied, dropping her eyes demurely. "Why are you not In the ballroom?" "I wanted to be alone. If any one really wanted me he could find me." Iler dejection surprised Ivarl. "You seem sad. Are you worried?" "Xo." "Then what has hupjieued 7" Karl asked. lie walked toward her. and as he did qp Millar emerged from his place of concealment. Karl looked at him. "Ah. now I understand." be said. "Surely you do not mean to suspect that I am the cause of Mlsa Elsa's un happtuess." he said blandly. Karl ignored him and turned to Elsa, looking at her in frank admiration. "You are very pretty tonight." he ■aid, going close to her. "It Is because you are yourself—a sweet, pure, natu ral girl. 1 like you better this way, Elsa. I could take you la my arms and bug you." "Oh, Karl!" Elsa exclaimed, blushing and biding afees. s ~ Millar's cynical smile overspread his face, and lie turned away, well satis lied w l 'i the progress lie was making. "Exetise me." lie murmured. "1 must say good evening to our hostess." And he stole quietly < sit. The two young people did not notice him. '1 hey sat down very close to each other, Karl leaning forward and look ing into the big blue eyes of the girl. Elsa gave a ght.ee at the disappear ing tigure of Millar. "I am awfully glad to be alone with you. Elsa," Karl said. "You are the one natural tiling In the fetid, artilielal atmosphere. Don't you feel warm?" "Yes, as If some hot breeze were blowing through this room. It stifles nie." "You never spoke like that before," Karl said. ills back was toward the ballroom door, and he did not see Millar usher Olga luto the room. The man had brought Olga that she might witness the fulfillment of her plan and that he might triumph In her Jealousy and further thwart them. Elsa saw them come In and seat themselves across the room. "There Is Olga," she said, and she, too, is Jealous. "Don't you want to 6[>eak to her?" "I havo seen her," Karl replied with out turning around. "I would rather talk with yon. It's far more Interest ing." "They are talking about us," Elsa said warnlngiy as she saw Olga and Millar look toward them. "Oh, what of It!" Karl exclaimed Impatiently. "Let us be glad we are together. I am Just beginning to know you, Elsa." "Why do you look around then?" Elsa said. "Am I looking arouud?" Karl asked. "I wasn't aware of It." lSut even as ho spoke be could not help furtively glancing around to see what Mlllur ami Olga were doing, lie remembered the man's declaration In tbe studio ihat afternoon, and be din trusted nud feared him. He was be ginning to bate him. By a sheer effort of will be forced blmself to turn to IClsa. lie resolved that be would talk to ber; that be would make love to her; that be would marry ber uud banish from his heart those hateful emotions which Millar bad arouseil. lie leaned forward and spoke of love to the girl In low tones, while Elsa. with color coming and go ing In ber face, listened uud watched tbe woman she knew for ber rival. "Our llrst love usually Is our last love—our last love always Is the tlrst." Karl said. "I don't know." Lisa cried demurely "I have never lieon In love, ulthough I was disappointed twice." she mliletl gayly. Karl was beginulug lo tind bis task dlUlcult Ills atteutlou wandered to Olga. "Disappointments! Well, yes. who has not been disappointed?" Else observed his growing inatten tion. his efforts to concentrate bis thoucbts ou their talk, his futile love making. and she turned from him cold ly. Meanwhile Millar and Olga were having a conversation In which Olga was being torn on the rack of her jeal ous emotions. Millar bad brought ber Into tbe ante room to show her Karl making love to Elsa. Every circumstance favored bis design. Olga at first was dlspoaed to withdraw when she saw them. "Don't you think we should leave the young people togetherT" she aald. "You are too considerate," Millar re plied cynically. "They seem to be growing fond of each other," Olga said jealoualy. "Yes. Do you dislike Itf* "No." "Shall we leave now?" "No. I rather enjoy watching my seed bear fruit" Olga tried to speak lightly and amlle. Millar, watching ber cloaely, saw ber lips twitch, aud It waa with difficulty that she controlled herself. •They are an Interesting couple," he ■aid. "Can't we dlscuaa something besides these two?" Olga asked Impatiently. "Yes, certainly." Millar acquiesced. "I came here tonight to decide a *a ger." he went on. "What was It?" Olga asked absently, locking with Jealous eyes at Elsa and Karl. "I made a wager that you would fall In love with me tonight" Olga was startled by the declaration, but she treated It lightly as one of Mil lar's strange sayings. "With whom did you make such a wager?" she asked. "With Karl," Millar auswered quick ly- "Karl. And what did he say*'" Olga cried, almost rislug from her seat "I must not tell you now. It might hurt you." "Oh, no; it won't I'lease tell me now," Olga pleaded, leaning over the table toward him. Millar, too, leaned forward, his face almost touching her white shoulder, his hand touching hers as it rested on the table. It was thus Karl saw them with one of those furtive glances, and the gilst froze the pretty speech be was trying to make to Klsa. The girl, see ing his look. Jumped to her feet, ex claiming angrily, and so that all three heard her: "Take me to the ballroom Immedi ately. 1 have promised the next dance." Karl also, his face white with pas sion, had Jumped to his feet Elsa, almost In tears, stamped her foot at him. "Why do you stand there? Take me away. Aren't you coming?" Bhe turned and started to the door, Karl following. They passed Millar and Olga, still seated at the table. "I thought you were In the ballroom," Olga said sweetly to the girl. "Oh, did your* "I hope you are enjoying the danc ing." "I hate dancing, but I shall dance ev ery dance tonight," Elsa cried passion ately. She looked angrily at Olga, who arose and moved toward her. Karl stepped between them, giving his arm to Elsa. The two walked together, leaving Olga looUlng helplessly Into the 6mlllug face of Millar. [To le Continued.] Root Creps For Stock.
