The Rio Grande was still rising slowly Friday morning, with a height j

Funeral services for Joseph Jagou,

were to have been held this after
noon at 4 o’clock from the home

died yesterday morning. Rev. R, O.

Pallbearers are to be a group of

Vicente Crixell is in Mercy hos
pital for several days’ treatment
following an automobile accident
last night about 9 o’clock at Eighth
and Elizabeth streets.
He suffered several severe cuts,
but no serious injury. His car is
said to have run into a tree.
It was a stormy night In mid
January. The pavements were
swept by drenching sheets of rain,
and a piercing wind was blowing.
In that cosmopolitan comer of
New York called Greenwich Village
the streets were almost deserted
by 10 o'clock. From behind the
closed blinds of the little cafes and
drinking shops came bursts of
music and laughter.
Halfway down the narrow street.
Bastien Dumont, tumbling down
the steps leading to the Cafe Turc
and pushing open the door, was
met with a twang of a mandolin
and a light, gay tenor voices sing
ing “Funiculi, Funicula.”
Bastien was Anglo-French, one
of a score of struggling artists who
frequented the little cafe. The place
was something like a club for the
indigent who would sip the wine
of life, but who must have it cheap.
There were two rooms at the
Cafe Turc—the first lust below the
level of the street, small and low
ceiled, with the bar, the coffee
urns, and a reredos of bottles on
the left; the second a few steps
lower still, much larger, equally
low m pitch, with sanded floor and
some dqpn tables, big and little,
ranged round the walls. These walls
displayed a collection of sketches,
legacies from various artists.
One night a great man had sat
there and laughed over his wine,
and had turned and drawn a girl's
head on the wall behind him. His
had been a name to conjure with.
At the door the young man
paused, blinking, and expelling a
grateful breath.
"Peste, what a night!'* he ex
claimed. Groping his way through
the blue-gray fog to the shining
counter, .he shook the proprietor
by the hand. “What a night!” he
cried in a warm, youthful voice.
“Is Judy here?*
The proprietor returned Du
mont's greeting and answered his
question in the Franch language,
which the young man had used.
"I have not seen Judy yet, M.
Dumont: but she will doubtless be
here. Chummy is in there.” He
jerked his thumb toward the inner
. Dumont passed on, calling out a
greeting here and there to friends
who sat in smoke-encircled groups.
Between the two rooms the *mart
who was singing to his mandolin
rose and looked at him expectantly.
This was Dan. the waiter and
general factotum of the establish
ment—a lanky being who looked
like a clown in his baggy clothes.
Dumont ordered coffee and
cognac, and. entering the inner
room, was noisily greeted by a
crowd of men at one of the larger
tables. Room was made for him,
and he sat down among them.
• • •
At a table on the opposite side
of the room to the one at which
Bastien Dumont had joined his
friends, two men were sitting. Of
the other tables, most were oc
cupied by groups of twos and threes.
From time to time glances of
curiosity were directed at the two
men. For one thing, they were not
habftues of the place, and it was
seldotn that strangers came to the
Cafe Turc. One of them, however,
was known to several people there.
He was Vincent Stornaway, a suc
cessful portrait painter, who had
long ago abandoned any pretense
of a Bohemian life. He exuded
prosperity with his faintly pic
turesque clothes, his flowing tie,
his golden-brown beard, pale cheek*
and clear, healthy skin.
His companion was known to
nobody, and various unflattering
comments were passed on his ap
pearance. He was unprepossessing
to a degree, his pallid face being
fleshy and heavy-jawed, his eyes
pale and small and sunk in puffy
bags, his forehead low and square
and livid against a band of coarse
black hair. He had a big, hooked
nose and a thick neck, and there
was a sinister suggestion in the
straight line of his lips, which
were thin and peevish, and con
tradicted all the rest of hts face.
“A liberllne with a bad temper."
murmured clever Tony Leigh, the
cruelest caricaturist with the kind
est heart in the world.
"Good shot. Tony!" said another
man. "I wonder who the chap can
As a matter of fact, Stornaway’s
companion was Bruce Gideon, a
financier, whose portrait the artist
was painting as a present from an
insurance company with which
Gideon was associated. During the
sittings Gideon had shown much
interest in the life of artists, and
the two men had become friendly
to a certain extent.
Gideon had asked Stornaway to
dinner at his apartment on Park
Avenue, and had expressed a desire
to see a real bit of the poorer
