Archie Newport had said it, and Archie Newport, was an artist and knew all about such things. When she visited Portadown mansions he used to stand at his window and watch her alight l'rom a car, nip across the pavement holding up her dainty skirt the while daintily, whereby lie got just a peep of the tip of the most fascinating pet ticoat, to say nothing of a pair of ank les the like of which could not be seen in the neighborhood—and so on into the huge building in which he occupied a modest flat. , By the time she was in the hall, and had nodded to the janitor, Mr. New port had generally reached the door of his flat which she had to pass, for the elevator was just opposite, and was pulling on his gloves preparatory to sallying out. He discovered that she visited the people on the third floor, and he set himself to learn as much as he could about them. There seemed to be a kind of mystery about them. They were an Italian couple, and the jauitor, whom he interviewed, remarked that he didn’t know that "they were much good.” Mr. Newport provided his informant with the kind of refreshment which latent mesmerism generally demands, and returned to his studio. "Strange thing!” he reflected, as he gayly painted "Venice by Moonlight,” with the confidence of a man who has never traveled farther than New York. “Can't imagine why a nice girl like that can want to have anything to do with such people. Hope it’s all right.” He had uo particular reason for doubting that "it was all right,” but he took a great interest in her, and had reached that stage when a man thinks that a girl needs some one to look after her. She generally came in the evening, and never appeared earlier than seven o’clock. From this it may be gathered that he had studied her habits closely. One night his chance came, though it cannot be said that he availed him self of it to a large extent. She—he had got into the narrow minded way of thinking of her as “she,” apparently having lost sight of the fact that there are other people m ine worm or me iernaie sex—arrived as usual at about a quarter past seven, and by the most extraordinary good fortune he was, as usual, just going for a walk. Consequently they met in the hall. The janitor happened to be out, and the elevator boy was likewise absent, so Archie Newport stepped into the breach. “I’m afraid the boy who looks after the elevator is not here to-day,” he said, raising his hat. “Can I do any thing for you?” ‘‘O, no, it doesn’t matter!” she said, with a smile and a blush. “I can easily run up stairs.” “If you will allow me, I shall be glad to take you up in the elevator,” he said. “I’m a tremendous dab at elevators.” He took his place in the car as he spoke, and waited for her to join him. She gazed at him in a little perplexity. It is probable that his impulsive good ness took her breath away, and it was borne in upon him that she was really quite the prettiest girl he had seen. “I—I really couldn’t think of troub ling you,” she stammered. The painter assured her with so much solemnity that, so far from be ing a trouble, it would be a source of almost inexpressible happiness, that her look of perplexity vanished, and a smile broke over her face. “If you are quite sure it would not be taking up too much of your time,” she murmured, and stepped into the elevator. He decided to paint the scene, sub stituting a gondola for the elevator, and run it into his picture. "Which floor do you want to go to?” he asked, diplomatically, though he new that Mr. and Mrs. Ferrari lived on the third. "I think it’s the third,” she mur mured. "It’s Mr. Ferrari’s flat I am going to.” He closed the door and gave the cord a mighty pull. Perhaps he overdid the pulling, or perhaps elevators, like human beings, are endowed with a special talent for contrariety. Whatever it was, the fact remains that after springing upwards with unusual celerity the elevator suddenly •topped with a Jerk. “That’s funny,” said the artist “Where are we?” she Inquired, in a half frightened voice. “About midway between the second and third floors,” he said, glancing up wards. "I shall soon have It right again.” He pulled the cord at first gently and then violently, but the elevator re mained as still as if it were imbedded in rock. “Perhaps we had better go down again,” she said. “Perhaps we had,” he admitted. He tried to make the elevator de scend, but failed. “It strikes me the silly thing has stuck fast,” he muttered. “You don’t think it will fall, do you?” she asked, with a scared face. “O, no!” ho replied, with a confi dence which he didn’t feel. “The jani tor will return soon and I shall shout to him. He will put it right again in no time.” “Is he a dab at elevators, too?” she inquired, with a kind of tremulous mischievousness. At that moment he thought he heard the janitor’s step in the hall below. “Hello!” he called out. “Is that you, Wilkins?” “Yes, sir,” responded the ex-soldier, heartily; “it’s me.” “This wretched elevator has stuck fast. See if you can release it” , Soon came the welcome news that it wouldn’t take five minutes to re lease it. “Will you let me give you my card?” asked Mr. Newport, while they waited to be freed. “And I hope you will for give me for giving you such a fright. I am an artist. Do you think you would give me a few minutes one even ing and let me sketch you? I have al ready done so from memory.” He took a rough drawing from his poeketbook, where he kept it as a means of mental refreshment when the world was more than usually awry, and showed it to her. She was evidently pleased, but said it. was quite impos sible tor her to give him a sitting—at any rate, for some time to come— as her evenings were fully occupied. “During the day I am in Weldon's jewelry house, as you know,” she added. “Why do you say ‘as I know?’” he asked. "Because you followed me home one evening, and since then I have seen you pass once or twice during the day,” she replied, demurely. Mr. Newport grinned. It was true that he had followed her one evening, but believed he had done so with such skill that she was not aware of it. “I hope you will forgive me for that, too,” he said. “O, yes!” she said, lightly. The elevator had ascended at last, and they had now reached the third floor. “And now I will say good night!” she added. “Thanks so much for your kind assist ance.” “Do not make such a noise.” said a voice with an unmistakably foreign ac cent. Archie Newport rubbed his eyes and woke himself up as suddenly as possi ble. It was six o’clock in the morn ing. "Be careful!” said the Italian voice. “Now, steady! Ah, there you go! It is too heavy. Wait, I will find some one else to help you.” It suddenly occurred to Mr. Newport that. it. was an ideal morning for a swim in the natatorium. and that it would be interesting to know what Mr. Ferrari was doing at that early hour. He jumped into a suit of flannels as quickly as possible and rushed out. There he saw two big men struggling with an enormous box or chest, which was apparently a heavy burden, for it was as much as they could do to carry it up the stairs. Mr. Ferrari was at hand, gesticulating wildly, and half shouting, half whispering instructions to them. "Morning!” said Archie, with a nod. "Good morning!” said the Italian, a«grily. “You are out early]” “So are you.” “I have business.” “I haven’t.” “Do not let me delay you.” “Shall I lend you a hand with the box?” “No!” almost screamed the for eigner.. “Do not touch it. I wish—I wish you would mind your own busi "Going to bury some one, I should think,” replied the artist, ironically. “How dare you say such a thing?” snapped Mr. Ferrari. "Why do you not go away?” By the time he had turned the cor ner of the street it had struck Archie that he had been somewhat short sighted to quarrel with the man who had the privilege of entertaining every evening the beautiful creature w'hose face it w'as his chief delight to sketch. “But what on earth is that box for?” he asked himself. For the life of him he couldn't an swer the question. It was far too big for clothes or books. Indeed, his jocu lar remark about burying a person in it was not so absurd, now he came to think of it, for unless it was designed to hold a human being he could see no use for it. The subject was not a pleasant one, and he dismissed it hastily. That night “she” arrived, but later than usual. Again he had his hat on ready to go out. She had a cloak over her shoulders and was in evening dress. “How do you do?” he said, pleas antly, with a decent, air of surprise, as if she were the last person in the world he expected to see. But she was in a state of great agi tation. Her face was pale and she was trembling with nervousness, and —was it fear? “O, please don’t stop me!” she said, excitedly. “I must not—O, I dare not speak to you!” She ran to the elevator—the hoy was on duty that night—the door was closed, and he stood staring at it in astonishment. What was the cause of her agitation, her distress? • He lighted a cigarette, and, after a moment’s thought, strolled out of the building. From the street he could see the lights in the Ferrari flats. He looked up, wondering what took place there, and for what purpose that queer-look ing box had been brought in. Suddenly he became aware that the lights were being lowered, until the place was almost in darkness. A sick ening thought came into his mind, and he returned to the house. As he stood there, hesitating, he dis tinctly heard a woman’s scream, fol lowed by a low, moaning sound. This was too much for him. He turned to Wilkins and bade him follow. “Come upstairs with me!” he said. “I’m going to And out what is going on. Did you see that box taken into Mr. Ferrari’s flat this morning?” “I did, sir,” said the man. “It came mighty early, as if he didn’t want any body to see it. And a stranger looking box I never see. I says to my wife, I says: ‘You mark my words, there’s something queer going on up there!’ That’s what I says, sir.” They had been running up the stairs while ho spoke, and by this time had reached the Ferrarls’ door. “You have a latchkey to all the doors,” said Archie. “Open it!” The man hesitated. “Open it!” repeated the artist, sharp ly. “I will be responsible.” In another moment he was standing inside the Ferraris’ hall. In a room in front of him he could hear voices whispering. He burst in. There was the box. It stood open, and his heart turned sick as he per ceived that it was lined like a coffin. On a chair sat the pretty girl from Weldon’s. Her hands were tied behind her, and her face was pale and frightened. Both Mr. and Mrs. Ferrari were there. “You dog!” screamed the Italian, who was evidently mad with passion at his intrusion. “Thank heaven, I am in time!” said Archie. The Italian threw himself furiously upon him, but he had no chance against the athletic young artist. Striking out like the practiced boxer he was, Archie struck him in the chest and sent him reclinir backwards. Then he turned to the girl w hom he had come to rescue. Taking a pen knife from his pocket, he cut the rib bon with which her wrists were bound, and, regardless of all conventionalities, snatched her to his breast. “You fool!” said Mr. Ferrari, strug gling to his feet and rubbing his chest. “You fool!” He relinquished his hold upon the girl and turned to Mr. Ferrari, who was literally dancing with passion. “How dare you come into my llat?” he was screaming. "What do you think you are—a hero in a melo drama?” Archie began to think that perhaps he had been precipitate. “I came to save her life,” he stam mered. “To save her life!” echoed the Ital ian in dismay. "What do you-■” Then he, too, began to laugh. “The box!” he gasped, pointing at the big, ugly looking receptacle. “He thought I was a murderer. He came to safe her life. Did it not strike you, my gallant young friend, that I might be going to use the box for profes sional purposes?” “For professional purposes?” said Archie, lamely. “Why not?” “I don’t know what you are talking about,” said Archie. “Are you an un dertaker?” “No, a conjurer!” screamed Ferrari. “I am going to do the box trick at the Pavilion to-night. I am going to make this young woman vanish.” “Heavens, what a chump I have made of myself!” said Archie, truth fully. “But why did she scream, and why did you turn down the light?” “I only cried out because I hurt my self the first time I got into it,” said the girl from Weldon's. “This is to be my first night on the stake, and I am nervous.” “And I turned down the light be cause one does not conjure with the gas on full,” said Ferrari. Archie, feeling that his mission wras ended, turned to go. “No, no,” said the Italian, “do not go away like that. There is no harm done. We shall have to start directly. Come with us. This is my wife. This is Miss Belton, the young woman who is going to assist me.” On the whole, it cannot be said that Archie commenced his courtship un der favorable conditions. But appar ently he succeeded in spite of all, for now when he has visitors he shows them the portrait of an extremely pret ty girl, with dark eyes and most won clnrfnl r*hr-eirt 11 + Viair Tt IQ flip hpct Tlif* ture he has ever painted, and he likes to draw attention to it. “My wife,” he always says, with pride.—Chicago Tribune. Whistler First Told This. It often was said among the ac quaintances of the late James McNeill Whistler that he would rather make a new enemy than a new friend. Of course, he was eccentric and peculiar, but those who knew him well swore by him. As an artist he was a master, and he loved all things beautiful. He was fond of books and poetry and oc casionally he w'rote some verses him self, but could never be prevailed upon to publish them. He was a good critic, and knowing this a friend came to him one day with some verses written by a young man who wanted an honest opinion on them. After reading the verses Whistler handed them back to his friend, who said: “Do you think he can sell them?” “I don't know where.” “Well, what do you think he ought to get for them?” “If he throws himself upon the mercy of the court, I should say about six months.”—N. Y. Herald. Sly Bridget. Bridget was none too truthful and her mistress had been using all her eloquence to make her see the error of deceitfulness.
