HIS ASSURAHCE,
By CUTHBERT BAKER.
(Copyright. 1909. by A an A so
ciation.}
Carstairs, though a gentleman, bad
the most unbounded assurance, and bis
resource was uot less. Be was very
fond of telling bow be got Into places
where there was no admittance except
for a favored few and got out of
scrapes simply by bis unmitigated
nerve.
In Paris he bad secured an inter
view with the president of the Freuch
republic by dashing up to the Elysee
palace in an automobile, alighting and
stalking past the guards and attend
ants as though be were some immense
ly important personage, and having
thus gained the ear of the president
secured a valuable concession.
When Carstairs went to Naples
friends he met there warned him, aa
strangers are always warned, against
the dishonesty and trickery of the Nea
politans. "Why," said one fresh Amer
ican importation, "I go out with 20
francs in my pocket, spend 5 and re
turn to my hotel with 3. How they do
it I don't know." Carstairs replied
that he would never fail to count bis
change and therefore he couldn't lose
anything.
Carstairs had spent so much time in
northern Italy—he owned a villa on
Lake Como—that he spoke Italian like
a native. While in Naples he decided
to give a dinner to a number of friends
at the Hotel Murat. On the day of
the dinner and just before the hour it
was to take place there came up a
sudden heavy shower. Carstairs wore
a silk hat and also evening dress under
a thin overcoat and had no umbrella
There are plenty of cabs in Naples,
but every one in that neighborhood
was appropriated by persons caught in
the shower. Carstairs stood iu the
vestibule of a shop. Looking at his
watch, he saw that it was within five
minutes of the hour set for his dinnei
party. Seeing a well dressed man go
by with an umbrella in the direction
which he himself wanted to go, his
assurance and inventive power came
to the front. Dashing out from cover,
he slipped his hand on the man's arm
familiarly and said:
"What luck! I've been looking for
you all over the city. I have great
news for you. Signorina PaoU has

gfven me a message" for" you which
she would intrust to no one else,
knowing that you are my most inti
mate friend and 1 am yours."
The man started to interrupt, but
Carstairs gave him no opportunity.
"She regrets exceedingly," he went
OB, "her treatment of you and wishes
to make amends. But her parents are
very watchful. She wishes you to
meet her in the park, or, rather, at
the sea wall opposite the park, tomor
row evening just before dark. She
will walk from north to south, while
you are to walk in the opposite direc
tion, starting at exactly 7 o'clock. If
the weather is pleasant and the sea
smooth have a boat at the center steps.
She fears to meet some one who
knows her, so she will be disguised,
but you will know her by a flower that
she will carry in her left hand.
"There, you lucky dog, you should
consider yourself under undying obli
gations to me for consenting to bear
the message. Had I not loved you so
well 1 would not have done it, nor
would the signorina have intrusted me
with her confidence."
At this juncture the two reached the
Hotel Murat. and Carstairs, with a
"Goodby, dear boy! I wish you a
pleasant boat ride tomorrow evening
with your sweetheart," ran into the
doorway.
The guests were assembled and nil
sat down to dinner. Carstairs was in
high good humor. One of the company
was smarting at having received in
change three counterfeit five frauc
pieces.
"Never," said the unfortunate per
son, "have I mingled with a people so
tricky as the Neapolitans."
"Oh, you don't know how to handle
them." said Carstairs. "If you wish
to be immune from being robbed you
must tickle their vanity, and the way
to do that is to tell a man of some
woman who is dying for him."
And Carstairs told of how he had
secured the use of an umbrella.
"But the man must have supposed
that you had made a mistake." re
marked one of the party. "He could
have had no interest in this girl."
"Ah, you don't know the Italians!
They are so full of romance that the
fellow doubtless enjoyed the matter as
much as if it were his own
"Your shirt bosom is unbuttoned,
Carstairs," said one of his friends,
"and your necktie is away up under
your left ear. You should have looked
in a mirror before sitting down to
dinner."
Carstairs put his hand to his shirt
front, where he wore two diamond
studs for which he had recently paid
$500 each. They were both gone. A
trifle pale, he thrust bis band into the
pocket where he kept his wallet. It
was not there. It had contained $401)
It was not the loss of the studs or
the money that affected Carstairs. It
was the fa't that he had been "done"
by an Italian upou whom he thought
he was playing au innocent joke The
expression on his face was one of
shamefacedness
"What is it. old man V" asked a guest.
"What is it! Why, 1 have given two
diamond studs and 2.000 lira for the
use of that umbrella
For a tew moments all looked sen- I
ously sympathetic, then the ludicrous
side of the ad\enture got the better of
the party, and all burst into laughter
"My friends." said Carstairs. having
recovered himself and raising his
glass, "here's to the Neapolitans, the
prestidigitators of the world!"

THE GREEN DOOR,
A Bold Adventurer Finds a Ro
mance In Solving a Mystery.
By O. HENRY.
{Copyright, 1900, by McClure, Phillips &
Co.J
Suppose you should be walking down
Broadway after diuner. with ten min
utes allotted to the consummation of
your cigar while you are choosing be
tween a diverting tragedy and some
thing serious in the way of vaudeville
Suddeuly a hand is laid upon your
arm. You turn to look into the thrill
ing eyes of a beautiful woman won
derful In diamonds and Russian
bles. She thrusts hurriedly into your
hand an extremely hot buttered roll,
flashes out a tiny pair of scissors,
snips off the second button ot ,\our
overcoat, meaningly ejaculates the one
word "parallelogram" and swiftly flies
down a cross street, looking back tear
fully over her shoulder.
That would be pure adventure
Would on at-rept it? Not you. *ou

would sheepishly drop the roll and

blessed few in whom the pure spirit
of adventure is io dead.
In the big city the twin spirits, Ro
mauce and Ad\mature, are always
abroad seeking worthy wooers As we
roam the streets they slyly peep at us
and challenge us in twenty different
guises.

to be what migbt lie just around tbe
next corner. Sometimes bis willing
ness to tempt fate led bim into strange
patbs. Twice he had spent the night
In a station bouse. Again and again
be had found himself tbe dupe ot in
genious aud mercenary tricksters. 11 is
watch and money bad been tbe price
of one flattering allurement. Kut with
undiminished ardor be picked up ev
ery glove cast before bim into tbe
merry lists ot adveuture.
Oue evening Rudolf was strolling
along a cross town street in tbe older
central part ot tbe city. Two streams
of people tilled ibe sidewalks, the
home hurrying *md tb.it restless contin
gent that abandons borne for the spe
cious welcome of the thousand candle
power table d'hote.
Tbe young adventurer was of pleas
bag presence and moved serenely and
watchfully. By daylight he was a
salesman in a piano store. He wore
his tie drawn through a topaz ring in
stead of fastened with a stickpin, aud
once he had written to the editor ot a
magazine that "Junie's Love Test." by
Miss Libbey. bad beuu tbe book tbat
had most influenced his life.
During bis walk a violent chattering
of teeth iu a glass case ou tbe side
walk seemed at tirst to draw his atten
tion (with a qualmi to a restaurant
before which it was set, but a second
glance revealed tbe electric letters of
a dentist's sign bigb above tbe next
door. A giant negro fantastically
dressed iu a red embroidered coat, yel
low trousers and a military cap dis
creetly distributed cards to those of
the passing crowd who consented to
take them.
This mode of dentistic advertising
was a common sight to Rudolf. Usu
ally be passed tbe dispenser of the
dentist's cards without reducing bis
store, but tonight the sVfricau slipped
one into bis baud so deftly tbat he re
tained it there, smiling a little at th
successful feat.
When he had tra^eled a few yards
farther be glanced at tbe card indif
ferently. Surprised, be turned it over
and looked again with interest. One
side of tbe card was blank on the oth
er were written in ink three words
"The Green Poor." And then Rudolf
saw three steps in front of him a man
throw down the card the negro had
given bim as be passed. Rudolf picked
it up. It was printed with the dentist's
name and address and the usual sched
ule of "plate work" aud "bridge work"
and "crowns" and specious promises
of "painless" operations.
The adventurous piano salesman
halted at the corner aud considered.
Then be crossed tbe street, walked
down a block, recrossed and joined the
upward current of people again. With
out seeming to notice tbe negro as be
a he me he a
took tbe card tbat was banded bim.
a a be in it.
tbe same handwriting tbat appeared
on the tirst card "The Green Door"
was inscribed upon it. Three or four
cards were tossed to the pavement by
pedestrians botjL following.jud leading
him. These fell blank side up. Ru
dolf turned them over. Every one bore
the printed legend of the dental "par
lors."
Rarely did the arch sprite adventure
need to beekon twice to Rudolf Stein
er. his true follower. But twice It had
been done, and the quest was ou.
Rudolf walked slowly buck to where
the giant negro stood by the case ot
rattling teeth. This time as he passed
he received no card. In spite of his
gaudy and ridiculous garb the Ethio
pian displaced a natural barbaric dig
nity as he stood, offering the cards
suavely to some, allowing others to
pass unmolested. Every half minute
he chanted a harsh, unintelligible
phrase akin to the jabber of car con
ductors and grand opera. And not
only did he withhold a card this time,
but it seemed to Rudolf that he receiv
ed from the shining and massive black
countenance a look of cold, almost con
temptuous, disdain.
The look stung the adventurer. He
read in it a sileut accusation that he
had been found wanting. Whatever
the mysterious written words on the
cards might mean, the black had se
lected him twice from the throng for
their recipient and now seemed to have
condemned him as deficient in the wit
and spirit to eugage the enigma.
Standing aside from the rush, the
young man made a rapid estimate of
the building in which be conceived
that his adventure must lie. Five sto
ries high it rose. A small restauraut
occupied the basement.
The first floor, now closed, seemed
to bouse millinery or furs. The sec
ond floor, by the winking electric let
ters, was the dentist's. Above this 9
polyglot babel of signs struggled to in
dicate the abodes of palmists, dress
makers, musicians and doctors. Still
higher up draped curtains and milk
bottles white on the window sills pro
claimed the regions of domesticity.
After concluding his survey Rudolf
walked briskly up the high flight of
stone steps into the bouse. Up two
flights of the carpeted stairway be
continued and at its top paused. The
hallway there was dimly lighted by
two pale jets ot gas. one far to his
right, the other nearer to his left. He
looked toward the nearer light and
saw within its wan balo a green door
For oue moment be hesitated then be
seemed to see the contumelious sneer
of the Africau juggler of curds, and
then be walked straight to the green
door and knocked against it.
Moments like those that passed be
fore his knock was answered measure
the quick breath ot true adveuture.
What might uot be behind those green
panels! Gamesters at play, cunning
rogues baiting their traps with subtle
skill, beauty in love with courage and
thus planning to be sought by it, dan
ger, death, love, disappointment, ridi
cule—any of these might respond to
that temerarious rap.
A faint rustle was beard inside, and
the door slowly opened. A girl not yet
twenty stood there white faced and
tottering. She loosed tbe knob and
swayed weakly, groping with one
hand. Rudolf caught her and laid her
on a faded couch that stood against
the wall. He closed the door and took
a swift glance around tbe room by tbe
light of a flickering gas jet. Neat but
extreme poverty was the story that he
read.
.. The girl lay still as if in a faint
hall bedchamber iu search of tbe uu- *.,A~\* i„„i-,Ji .,..,.,.,.* ••,.* ..
Rudolf looked arouudPeople
the room exeit
expected and tbeiegregious. most
edly for a barrel must be
rolled upon a barrel who—no. no that
was for drowned persons. He began
to fan her with bis hat. Tbat was
successful, for be struck ber uose with
tbe brim of bis derby, aud she opened
her eyes. And tbeu tbe young man
saw tbat hors. iudeed. was tbe one
missing face from his heart's gallery
of intimate portraits. The frank gray
eyes, the little nose, turning pertly
outward the chestnut bair, curling
like the tendrils of a pea vine, seemed
the right end and reward of all his
wonderful adventures. But the face
was woefully thin aud pale.
Tbe girl looked at bim calmly and
then smiled.
"Fainted, didn't I?" she asked weak
ly. "Well, who wouldn't? You try
going without anything to eat for
three days and see!"
"Himmel!" exclaimed Rudolf, jump
ing up. "Wait till I come back."
He dashed out the green door and
down tbe stairs. In twenty minutes
he was back again, kicking at the
door with his toe for her to open it.
With both arms be hugged an array
of wares from the grocery and the
restauraut. Ou the table he laid them
—bread aud butter, cold meats, cakes,
pies, pickles, oysters, a roasted chicken,
a bottle of milk aud one of redhot tea.
"This is ridiculous." said Rudolf
blusteringly. "to go without eating.
You must quit making election bets
of this kind. Supper is ready." He
helped ber to a chair at the table and
asked. "Is there a cup for the teaV"
"On the shelf by the window." she
answered. When be turned again
with the cup he saw her. with eyes
shining rapturously, beginning upon a
huge dill pickle tbat she bad rooted
out from tbe paper bags with a wo
man's unerring instinct. He took it
from her laughingly and poured tbe
cup full of milk. "Drink that first."
he ordered, "and then you shall have
some tea and then a chicken wing. If
you are very good you shall have a
pickle tomorrow. And now. if you'll
allow me to be your guest, we'll have
sapper."
He drew up the other chair The lea
brightened tbe girl's eyes aud brought
back some of ber color. Sbe began to
eat witb a sort of dainty ferocity like
some starved animal. She seemed to
regard tbe young man aud the aid
he had rendered ber as a uatural thing
—not as though sbe undervalued the
conventions, but as one whose great
stress gave her tbe right to put aside
tbe artificial for tbe human. But grad
ually with the return of strength aud
comfort came also a sense of tbe little
conventions tbat belong, and sbe be
gan to tell bim ber little story. It was
one of a thousand such as tbe city
yawns at every day—tbe shopgirl's
story of insufficient wages, further re
duced by "tines" tbat go to swell tbe
store's profits of time lost through ill
ness and then of lost positions, lost
hope aud—tbe knock of the adventurer
upon tbe green door.
But to Rudolf the history sounded as
big as tbe Iliad or the crisis in "Junie's
Love Test."
"To think of you going through all
thaJJ" he exclaimed.
"It was something fierce," said the
girl solemnly.
"And you have no relatives or
friends in tbe city?"
"None whatever."
"I am all alone in tbe world, too,"
•aid Rudolf after a pause.
"I am glad of that," said tbe girl
promptly, and somehow it pleased tbe
young man to bear that she approved
of bis bereft condition.
Very suddenly her eyelids dropped.
and she sighed deeply.
"1 am awfully sleepy," she said,
"and I feel so good
Rudolf rose and took his bat.
"Then I'll say good ulgbt. A long
night's sleep will be tine for you."
He held out his baud, and she took
it and said "Good night." But her
eyes asked a question so eloquently,
so frankly and pathetically that be
answered It with words.
"Ob. I'm coming back tomorrow to
see bow you are getting along. You
can't get rid of me so easily."
Then at the door, as though the way
of his coming had been so much less
important than tbe fact that he bad
come, she asked. "How did you come
to knock at my door?"
He looked at her for a moment, re
membering the cards, and felt a sud
den jealous pain. What if tbey had
fallen into other hands as adventurous
as his? Quickly he decided that she
must never know the truth. He would
never let her know that he was aware
of tbe strange expedient to which she
had been driven by her great distress.
"One of our piano tuners lives in
this house," be said. "1 knocked at
your door by mistake."
The last thing he saw in the room
before tbe green door closed was her
smile.
At the head of the stairway he paus
ed and looked curiously about him.
And then he went aloug tbe-hallway
to its other end and, coming back, as
cended to the floor above and contin
ued bis puzzled explorations. Every
door that he found in tbe bouse was
painted green.
Wondering, he descended to the
sidewalk. The fantastic African was
still there. Rudolf confronted him
with his two cards in his hand.
"Will you tell me why you gave me
these cards and what tbey mean?" be
asked.
In a broad, good natured grin tbe
negro exhibited a splendid advertise
ment of bis master's profession.
"Dar It is. boss." be said, pointing
down tbe street. "But 1 'specr. you is
a little late for de fust act."
Looking the way he pointed. Rudolf
saw above the entrance to a theater
the blazing electric sign of its new
play, "The Green Door."
"I'm informed dat it's a fust rate
show, sab." said tbe negro. "De agent

AND THE RESTAURANT.
what represents it pussented me with
a dollar, sab. to distribute a few of
his cards along with de doctab's. May
I offer you oue of de doctah's cards,
sah?"
At the corner of tbe block iu which
he lived Rudolf stopped for a glass of
beer and a cigar. Wbeu be bad come
out witb bis lighted weed be buttoned
his coat, pushed back bis bat and said
stoutly to the lamppost on the corner:
"All the same. I believe it was the
hand of fate that doped out tbe way
for me to find ber."
Which conclusion, under the circum
stances, certainly admits Rudolf Stein
er to the ranks of tbe true followers of
Romance and Adventure.
