SYNOPSIS. PART L—Robert Hervey Randolph, young New York man-about-town, leave, the home of hie sweetheart, Madge Van Telller, chagrined because of her refusal of hin proposal of marriage. Hia Income, *10,000 a year, which he muet surrender If a certain Mlaa Imogen Pamela Thorn ton (whom he haa aeen only aa a small girl ten yeara before) is found, la not considered by the gtrl of hla heart ade quate to modern needa In a ''don't care" mood Randolph enters a taxi, uneeeh by the driver, and la driven to the stage door of a theater. A man he knows, Duke Bearner, Induces a gtrl to enter the <ab. Beamer, attempting to follow, le pushed back by Randolph and the cab movee on. Hia new acquaintance tails Randolph she Is a chorus girl, and bas lost her position. Shs Is in distress, even hungry, and he takes her to his apart ment There, after lunch, a chance re mark convinces him the girl Is the miss ing Pamela Thornton. Ha dosa not tell her of her good fortune, but secures her promise to stay In the flat until the morning, and leaves her. In a whimsical mood, also realising that the girl's reap pearance hae left him practically penni less, he bribes the taxi driver to 1st him take his Job, and leaving word with the legal representative of the Thornton es tate where he can And Pamela, takes up his new duties under the name of ''Slim Hervey." He loves the girl, but hie pride forbids him approaching ber under their changed conditions. Chapter II. Continued He begun by leading her to a Neth erllmb Show and supper afterward. They danced a little and for the first time in her life, but under medical adviee, she took something In the way of stimulant after the Initial pret ty cocktail. They issued from supper and It was when Mr. Chauffeur Slim Hervey heard the whispered address that (he game became a threesome. Counting upon the abstraction, or rather, the concentration of his fares on Interior fittings, Driver Hervey soon switched his cab from the char tered route and made for down-town through silent back streets. In just ten minutes be drew up at an old fashioned house in a very quiet square, shut off his engine to the idle and waited. Not for long. Out of the cab came a blasphemous exclama tion in medical tones and with It a cry of awakening from Georgie. Through one window she looked upon the home of her childhood ; through the other upon that happy railed gar den-square, which was the umbrageous garner-close of all her dearest, purest and dreamiest memories. "Oh !" she gasped. "No, yoû mustn't scold him. This Is Just where I want to get out and walk. II 's —it's extraor dinary." Then from the curb. "I may be going to die of consumption, doc tor, but, after all, I'd rather—rather die that way." Twist Ihings around a little and you'll get what happened to Miss Ter ry die Guest with the difference that that beautiful and hungry young wom an who had all but turned her back' on Settlement work and her face to the Great White Way, suddenly awoke not in the moonlit embrace of Clalr monte, but before the accusing face of a House In Henry street. Nor was Mr. Slim Hervey partial to sex in salvation. There was the instance of young Bertram Blossome who shame-facedly hurried Into his cab a painted, wan-faced waif of the street with self-accusing eyes. No case this of hunted and hunter—rath er two strayed bits of weak humanity driven before the unleashed dogs of poverty and lust. How readily and unquestioning!)- the hoy slipped from the cab at his home address, miracu lously confused almost as by the med dling finger of God with one very different ! How gratefully the girl took the possible fare and "something over," and how her tears brimmed when ten minutes later the blue-eyed ehauffeur, a wage-earner like herself, said : "Nothing doing, Sister. The ride is on me," and promptly whirled away ! While all these incidents were en gaging, each in its own way, and all con ked upon them more or less as a means of get ting in his hand during a period of Initiation. Once he felt sure of him self and of hie new chauffeuring point of view and attitude toward the gay world from the under side, he began to haunt the neighborhood of East Ninth street at the hour when dinners are plenty and taxis scarce. Twice he saw Miss Madge Van Telller carried off In Somebody's pri vate car, but he was not discouraged, for be recognised In the very fact of that public privacy the badge of pre liminary outings. In due coarse his night and hour came. He was hailed by the arriving Mr. Beacber Tremont and ordered to stand by; twenty min utes later he was listening to that gentleman explaining to Miss Van T. that a cylinder had gone wrong on Ids own car at the last moment. Miss Madge Van Telller, upon whom Mr. Randolph had not laid eyes since the very definite parting of their ways shewed a reasonable profit to cerne«], M*r. ïtânÛ."^ !i"* ke on the rock of ready cash, was more beautiful tonight than at any other time since the evening of her coming out party. The reason was one and the same. Tonight, as upon that oth er, she stood within a threshold and peennl ont on Life with a big L. A flume was in her cheeks and In her eyes; her lips were half-parted and thirsty, her bosom agitated. She was divinely dressed. They were very silent on their way to dinner at the Knickerbocker, but they exuded an aura of tense expect ancy that made nothing of the glass barrier between them and the car pi lot, who soon felt himself lifted and «'arrled on its wave. Something was cooking beyond a doubt and he then and there determined to stick a fist through tlie crust of the pie just be fore the smell of burning. There is nothing more stereotyped than a night run before the fever hounds of New York. It is Invariably a four-act play that starts with a sin gle cocktail And'a tasty dinner, goes on to a show peppered with double meanings, thickens at the cabaret In the «dose harmony of booze and dance music and finally bursts "somewhere in the country." The first act was easy for Randolph ; he went on with the villain and the leading lady, but once the revolving door of the hotel had clucked on their backs he had to withdraw to the wings and dope out a means of evolving from a super into a star of the first magnitude. He decided that it didn't much matter who wafted the couple from dinnei to the show, but that the next entr'act would hold the crux of the night's entertainment, for the cab that secured the freight for the caba ret would stand a good chance of nail in# it after the ball. Consequently he was content to pick up a gutter-snipe and then trail Ills prey to the theater. "Them is the two," he said to his ally, suborned with the promise of two bits, cash on delivery, "the John with the high hat and the dream-dame in smoke-colored chiffon." "That's some name for a skirt. Cap," said the extreme youth admiringly, "an' some skirt, believe me. Nor! 1 won't forget 'em." And he didn't. No sooner had Mr. Beadier Tremont, bearing a thistle down burden on his arm, swelled out from tlie theater with the anxious look on his face of a man with three cars in the garage at home and no call number in his leffhand waistcoat pocket, than tlie imp was at his side. "Say, mister, wanter taxi? Got one at the head of the line that I'd give up just to youse for a dime." "Lead me to it," said Mr. Tremont. "Say," said the snipe to Randolph as the car jumped, "I've took the boss inside on fer a friend. You watch yeself." It was a short run to the lair of the Midnight Koiic, but Mr. Randolph was not surprised at the double wage lie re«"elved nor at the murmured con versation that accompanied it. "Kill r o NV''.« - "Wait for M« at the Seventh Avenue Northeaet Comer. Get Me?" up your gas tank and wait for me at Hie Seventh avenue northeast corner. Get me?" "Sure," grunted Mr. Randolph. "Where to, mister?" "Greenwood hostelry," breathed the villain. "Pni on," said Mr. Randolph, ran his car to tlie comfortably quiet nook designated, dug out a road map of Manhattan and vicinity, scrutinized it carelessly and settled down to medi tate. To a select and once affluent few the name of the G. hostelry above nientioned will bring wrtain vivid recollections and will also place tlie chronology of this yarn, for tlie said ahode of revelry was too good to last very long ; it choked to death on its own popularity and consequent pub licity. From the outsid«\ even in its hey-day, it presented a most innocu ous appearance, just a renovate«l farm house standing under a clump of veil ing sugar-maples on the top of a hill whence the nearest neighbor was out of sight. But once within its modest portal, its habitues found themselves in the cleverest fake atmosphere of a pleas ure-loving decade. An organizing gen ius, sensitive to all those cheap ad juncts which usually grate on the soul hovering at the edge of the decline to Avernus, had pandered effectively to an Ignoble end and made of each small room an isle of forgetfulness; price, twenty-five bucks In advance, supper and drinks extra. For the benefit of those who do not remember the epoch of the Green wood hostelry and are consequently reading on and on in mortal dread of the paragraph that will introduce the War, let it be said at once. Forget it. Stake out the beginning of the inter national mix-up, hurl another bound ary mark into November of 1918, and the time left outside of those limits will be found entirely sufficient to the needs of this chronicle. Let it further be noted that It Is inconceivable lhat a single drop of the kind of blood which flowed In the veins of Mr. Rob ert Hervey Randolph could ever an swer to the name of alacker, proof positive in itself that the events herein set forth happened when the War didn't. Mr. Slim Hervey, chauffeur, was still plunged in reverie when his senses were assailed by a whiff of lilac, a mere nuance of perfume, that pro claimed the approach of Miss Madge Van Telller. He jumped out Just in time to throw open the door of his cab for the couple and take the mur mured order of Mr. Bescher Tremont. "All right. Hit it up for Greenwood." Luckily for the cabman's entertain ment, his engine was working In si lent perfection that night. The late hour gqve him almost undisputed right of way so that driving became an automatic a«ljustment of hifc course in line with the <mrb and released his attention to gorge Itself at leisure with eaves-dropplng. By squirming his shoulders he managed to cock one ear over the top of his high overcoat collar; it was the ear next to the open speaking-slot. "What a dream of a night," said the clear voice of Miss Van Telller. "Shall I be a traitor to my sex and betray one of its secrets to you?" "Please do," murmured Mr. Tre mont. From the very tone of his voice one could divine that he had slipped an arm around her and was holding her close. "Well, ' it's this," she continued. "Women are not conquered by man alone, but by man and atmosphere. We never rush at the precipice; we flutter toward it with many stops and pauses. The silliest breezes of im pulse may carry us on or a puff of unkind aid hold us back. It all really depends on the man imposing his at mosphere so steadily that the drifting soul of woman forgets its inborn title to vagrancy and sleepily assumes its enemy's goal." "Madge." said Mr. Tremont almost «'arnestly, "you frighten me. I never knew you could talk like that. You frighten me because I have a terror of analyzed personal relations." Randolph could hear a faint rustling of her robe as though she had nestled closer to her escort. "I nevpr meant to startle you, Bencher," her voi«'e continued, not quite so clear. Into its tone had crept, hesitatingly, a trace of unaccustomed emotion. "I was only warning you. Every man can make a world of his arms for one woman ; not all can hold the Illusion to be yond possession." "I can, if you will only help me," whlspen-d Tremont, and paused as though ids own earnestness were tak ing him by surprise. "I wonder," said Miss Van Telller. "You have played the right game. You have never said a vulgar thing to me or stooped to the usual hypo crisies ; those nre compliments by in ference that have flattered the best that is in me. You have set the play in a high plane that winning, wins all of me; but—" "But what?" asked Tremont. "But there is danger in the high flight." finished Miss Van Tellier. "An air-pocket in your atmosphere anti, pouf! all is lost—the good In me that you will have missed as well as the bad that you could have won by a baser effort." "What do you njfiaa?' 1 Ssze3 Tre "îCüt, no longer making the slightest effort to hide his awakened interest. "I was thinking," said Miss Van Tel ller, dreamily, "that every woman is a group of three individuals. Shall l tell you their names?" "Yes," said Tremont. "The first," continued the girl, her voice floating from her as thougn carried on the bosom of her dream, "is called Flesh ; the second, Spirit, and the third—the third I shall name the Veiled God." "Madge!" cried Tremont, and Ran dolph, listening with all bis ears, could almost ffeel the clutch on bis own arms with which the man had seized the girl's, as though to drag her back from her mind's far distance. "People wonder," she continued, her mood unbroken, "at the wreck of ap parently perfect marriages and yet it's so simple to any woman that it's amazing that I should be the first to display our open secret. Only the complete lover rnn he secure of his beloved. Bencher. He who wins her flesh alone Jeive.s lier spirit to betray him, and he who wins the spirit alone Is - in mortal danger of the woman of the flesh." "Tlie explanation." said Tremont, whimsically, "is so feminine that it confuses. Tf you had said that each woman is a trinity and must he thrice won before a man's honor can feel secure, understanding would lie a sim ple matter. Did you leave out the Veiled God purposely or just to be different and avoid the obvious?" «To Bo Continued i GENUINE M BULL DURHAM tobacco makos 50 flood cigarettes for ^ ,0c Summons In the District Court, Second Judic ial District of the State ot Idaho. in and for the County of Latah.
