A wealth of bright golden hair shaded a face rosy with health and brilliant with genius. The clear, hasel eyes flushed with intelligence, aud the delicate eurve of the exquisitely chis eled lips expressed hatred or scorn, or Intensified emotion. Night after night the theater was filled with her admirers. Passion in every , phasethe very well-springs aud Impulses of our . nature eemcd to flud in her an interpreter that never erred. Her analysis of charac ter was pefect; it was truo to nature, ami therefore perfect. The night of which I sjieok had witnessed her greatest triumph. She seemed inspired, and the feel ing and emotions of her audience appeared as absolutely under hor con trol as if she weilded the wand of an enchantress. The curtain foil on the last act of the tragedy and the audience dispersed, borne mesmeric power held me to the spot, and I Jing gered around tho entrance of the tho ater. .; , , An hour must have passed by and Uie last of the company crept out of the narrow isle loud in a- to the ulnae. and sought their homes. H till the actress lingered; her carriage at the door the ilriverimnatient. Sudden ly from liehind the scenes echoing aiouir mat, narrow isle came a scream so piercing, that it cut to Uie heart iikc a uagger. it chilled my blond. I stood rooted to the spot; anguish, mirror, grici, were in irs toue. In a moment mora I riimliod nnen the door and rushed into the theater. Closo at my back canio Mr. I, the driver, and the porter of the establish ment.' rue light iu ttio Wrceu lloom was still buruimr. The lanre mirror that bumit from the wall M'M rVom iw opposite sofa the tinsel and mock Jewelry of a queen. I noticed this as i uasneu open me narrow door that lead to the dressing room assigned tho actress. It was empty. I called her by name. I shouted until the walls of the vast holding echoed back my voice. We searched everywhere, underneath and above the staure. even among the rolled curtains in tho loft, and tho narrow apertures between the scenes in vain. The actress had disappeared. The screams that had so startled us were not recatod. There was no avenue of escape, still she was gone. Mr. 1 visited her anartmenta at the hotel. She was not there. The gas was relit In the theatre aud our search resumed. 8 he was not to be found. I Her friends were visited; the moHttnnsicntaciuaintance called on, with a tike result. Each hour, Instead of revealing tho mystery, only deepened it. In the light ol the morning we confined the search.!
