"I have often wished to be a man," said Mrs.Cletnentry, turning those glo rious eyes of hers full upon Mr. War burton, whose good fortune had placed him next to nor at dinner. As it was the rirst time he had faced this battery be was somewhat dazzled. He thought, however, that it wis an unreasonable wis!>, and felt rather glad it could not be gratified. Then tlw> humor in him pictured this dainty, beautiful wow an as she wished herself, and lie laughed cheerfully. "Why do you laugh?" she asked se verely. "At a mental picture of the trans formation." he replied, -but why do you want such :>. change?" "A woman's sphere is contracted, re strained, hemmed around." answered the lady. "She cannot do great things. The world's battle goes along without her. She stays at home, anxious, eager to know what is happening, while the man is on the scene of action. She has yearnings to accomplish something. She repines at being helpless." Mr. Warburton was about to answer Hehtly when young Mr. Shirley, the rising you author, broke in: "You are right, Mrs. Ciementry, women have always been overriden. 1 have just finished a little sketch on this subject, which, if you will permit me, 1 will send you.' 1 Mis. Ciementry had rather a tender sentiment f.,r this big, ruddy-faced youngster, who, incidentally, "was a eivat favorite with women, perhaps be eauie he treated them with unusual deference, perhaps because he always made them his confidantes. Mr. Warburtoa looked at the young man sidemse and then ventured the question as to in what way were women downtrodden. Mr. .Shirley never cared much to argue with men. They were often too practical.and analytic. So he turned the <iuestion off by promising also iosend his sketch to Mr. Warbur ton. Tlit-n that gentleman, having per haps noticed the more than kindly glance that my lady had thrown at the young author, and maybe resenting the favor (he himself couldn't have told why I, remarked: "1 should much like to read your comments, Mr. Shirley, although 1 fear I shall not agree with them. Mrs. Cle metilry's view of life's battles, and the advantage that man has in being on tiie field, 1 think, will bear arguing.

Then, as the woman is usually up iirst. she gets the first information, and lias the advantage by twenty min utes." There was a general laugh at this, and Mr. Ciementry, who had been dis cussing sheen raising, and who thought woman's sphere was home, and who didnU like the young author, probably for the same ieason as Warburton, called down the table; "You are sound, \Varburton, very sound. There is too much useless talk and too much written on rights of women. Women have rights and wrongs, but you always find the right thinking women at home." Mr. Shirley Bushed and looked at his ptate- The lady gazed coldly at Mr. Warburton, who promptly froze, won dering how lie could have thought those eyes so glorious a few minutes before. Indeed, her displeasure continued dur ing the remainder of the dinner, and Mi. Warburton, who wus a thoughtful man, came to the conclusion that there was a duality about his fair neighbor, ami that her charm was much dependent upon lu-r own feelings. Later in the evening Mrs. Ciemontry, who was a little attracted to the serious engineer, after yetting the young author back to goad humor, relented a little, and Mr. Warburton went away with an invitation to call the next afternoon, fi "Tell me something about yourself," she suid encouragingly, after the com monplaces were over with. Mr. Waibutton gazed peacefully into thj lire. He had been asked this ques tion before by other women, li made him feel that it was the desire or the questioner to measure him. At present he did not care to be measured. He was moved no more than a man usually is by the Interest of a pretty woman. His feelings, which had been soreiy tried, had just calmed down to a natural stale, and he was not anxious for more up heavals. ••There is little about roe that is worth telling." he said, quietly, "i was born in New York, entered Columbia college, studied mining and engineering, went to South Atnerica.jfound silver in Peru, where lam interested in a mine. Two months ago 1 felt a longing to be back in New York for the Christinas season, and here 1 am." Mrs. Clementry raised her eyebrows just a shade. This was not the answer siie had expected. Young Mr. Shirley would not have so answered. This man was different from the run, then. She didn't know if he were laughing at her or not. Lsut she was a clever woman, and didn't often make mistakes. Her quick intuition told her that ho would Oe an easy man to handle if his-feelings were moved. She made up her mind in an instant to move them. Not. that she cared for him, but there is excitement in standing on a crater's edge when on a knows that the urea below are not ex tinct. So this delightful woman determined ito win the love of a man who. she j knew, must suffer. No, not for a whim. I but because she believed he would come ■ unwillingly. She always wanted the | next to impossible. It was a passion with her. During the remainder of the visit she was sweet, reserved, serious, She let him see the womanliness of her. She did draw him out in spite of himself. She «rot an idea of his earnestness, his ability and his weaknesses. She was really a charming woman, ami would have denied that she was cruel. Per haps she thought only of the moment, or, maybe, she didn't think at all. . When «Mr. Warburton arose to go he felt regret at parting. Mrs. Clementry admitted to herself after tie bad gone ttiat she had enjoyed his visit. The man. as he walked slowly towards the elevated station, felt somewhat as one does after being mesmerized. He awoke that night thinkingabout her, and found it hard to sleep again. In the morning lie thought of lu-r. At luncheon the visit of the preceding evening was less distinct. That evening it was fainter still. The force of Mrs. Clementry's spell was apparently evaporating. 11. Mrs. Clementry's carriage rolled up to the lhiriy ninth street entrance of the Metropolitan opera house on the "Car men" night, )ust after Mr. Waruurton had assisted his litUe cousin from his. He lifted his hat as Mrs. Clen.entrv passed him in the corridor on her way to her box. Mr. Warburton and his companion found their orchestra stalls with .some difficulty, for it was the big gest niaht of the season. Edouard de KeszUe was to sinjf the Toreador; his brother Jean, Don .Jobe; Ue Lussan. (JdiiDen, and Melba was Micliaela. Not even the great ltFaust" nights of the year before had drawn so large an au dience. The thought of trie great bas sos ttirilliujc notes ringing out in the Bongofthw bull fiichter filled nil with expectation. The*harp twang of *.un ing violins vibrated throuiiii the flower perfaoied air. The tiers of boxes, one above another, scintillated like diamond THE FAINT PAXTL DAILY GLOBE: "WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 26, 1891. horseshoes. New York's wealth was en parade, ami no city In the world can produce n more brilliant sight. "Jack," saicl tlie little lady as soon as \Y;i i burton had got off his coat and o led his programme, "who was that woman you just bowed to?" "Mrs. Clementry, the wife of Clemen try the banker." ••Is she tin old friend of y< urs?" "I doi.'i know as 1 can call her a Friend at all. 1 met her but once at din ner, and dropped iv the next after noon.'' "Well, said the little lady, with de rision, "I really thought she was a friend, and felt some way that she u.dn't like me." Jack's good-humored laugh was (lrowned by the orchestra. In truth, he hail almost forgotten Mrs. Clemently, lor it was fully two weeks since he hud paid the afternoon visit. He had not g)i.e back because he realized that she was unusually attractive, that if he saw much of her he would In all likelihood regret it. He had been wounded be fore. He was not anxious for any more Buffering. He had been a uioth more than once, and had burned his wings. He did not believe in love at first *iirl)t, but he had an Intelligent perception as to how love night grow, and then there was M+\ Clemently. Warburton knew himself. He was aware that the best intentions and the strongest resolutions ate consumed on occasions like paper in a ilame. He got a glimpse of Mrs. Clem entry in her box to the right, and thought that she was the most beautiful in all the throng. Then, strange as it may seem, he felt annoyed with himself for not iiavlng called upon her attain, as she had asked him to do. The first act whs all that could have been hoped for. The passion of the theme, the heavy, scented air, tiie music, all combined to move the man as he had rarely been moved before. The woman beside him chatted cheerfully away, telling him wiio was this one, who that—k was the Astor box to the left, in which sat the peautiful, dark haired woman with the diamond coronet and who looked so sad. She thought the occupants of the Goelet box must be strangers, as she had not seen them (herd before, and wot.dered why the Vanderbilt box was empty. "You know 1 rarely tn'.ss an opera night," she prattled on. "There is noth ing like opera in New York. I'll admit that the orchestra at tiie Grand opera in Paris is better, but nothing else. It wouldn't be it we had the same all the time, as they do." Then she gave Jack her class with which to look about the house, and the next moment caught his arm and said: "Do look to the right. There's young Mr. Shirley. He is so talented. Of course, you have read "Freckles.' his great character sketch, and then those dainty love stories. Ido so admire hint. He sent me his autograph last week, and told me such beautiful things about himself. Ido wish he would come dosvu." Warburton looked at his little cousin eonticttliy, and thought how alike wom en were. Then he caught Bight of Mr. Shit ley in Banner IJlews' box. He was leally radiant, his hair parted exactly in the middle, his high sUnd-UD collar, his square, flushed face and seraphic stiile, all making him the most conspic uous man in the opera house. The second act fulfilled the promise of the first. The De Reszkes had never sung better, Melba's voice was like a bird's, and l)e Lussan's acting exquis ite. Flowers ramed upon tiie stage. It was truly the success of the season. "Why, Warburton, how do you do; and you, Miss Graf ton. Delighted to see you, Tin sure. Just came down to take s Wai burton's place while he goes to Mis. Clementry's box—she sent me to tell him to come." "Now, do go, Jack," said the little lady, seems him hesitate, and herself all in a flutter of delight at the very presence of the radiant Mr. Shirley, "and mind you don't, come back until the orchestra begins." Mr. Shirley smiled complacently. Tiie liomat?e pleased him, although he was used to it. He sat down iv War burton's place. 111. "Do you know you are a very queer man. Air. Warburton?" s-ud Mrs. Cie nientry, three or tour evenings after tho performance of "Carmen." "Tell me why you abandoned me so cavalierly. Bui for the accident of your being at the opera 1 don't supuose I should ever have seen you again." "Yes," said Warburton. slowly. "It was my intention not to see you again." "Thai was unkind,'" said the lady. "My other frieuds aon't treat me as badly as that: but tell me why." Warburton (bought awhile, and then looking his questioner full in the face sain: "My conduct was based on purely saltish motives. You affect me strangely. Wnen lam with you 1 am, as it were, under a spell. ' 1 have a feeling such as 1 imagine to be that of a mesmerist's subject. After leaving yon it exists In a lesser degree, and finally wears off. I know that if 1 should see you often it would bo at the expense of my peace of mind. i would amuse you, pernaps, but that amuse ment eventually might prove disastrous to me. 1 have come today to bid you good-by. I have determined to "go back to South America." Mrs. Clementry did not reply at once. She felt regret that he was Koine away. She believed that if s>he told him so made him believe It—that he would not go. A feeling that she did not exactly understand herself kept her silent. She realized that it was better for him to no. "Perhaps," she said slowly, "if you feel this way it is better thai you xliould no, but 1 am sorry." Those glorious eyes of hers were turned udoii him, softer, deeper, more Under than ho thought they could be. A feeling of lulpiessness came over him. "Have you read Mr. Shirley's sketch on downtrodden women?" Mrs. Clem entry asked, for the silence had be come painiul. Warbui ton pulled himself together. "Yes," lie said, "it is clever." "1 think it is delightful," said Mrs. Clemently. "1 think he has a ((feat future." "That 1 doubt." said Warburton. thoughtfully. **J 11 five years lie will have been forgotten. lie is. 1 think, of that class or writers who can cleverly dress an incident that they have seen, but the merit of whose production is more the incident than the telling. Wo see this not only in the novelist, but also in the playwright, the dramatist. 'Freckle*' was the most eatcfiy thing that Shirley has written. ii was the story, though, not thd writing, which carried it. His Liter productions have never been as good. Ho is liable, how ever, if he picks uj» aiioti*""" mr *--**•* interesting as that In 'Freckles,' to do as good a piece of work. But the writer who does not depend largely upon his own imagination can never be great. His good stories sot a precedent; his mediocre ones, which must he In the majority, pull him down. Take Stev enson, who is, 1 think, the greatest liv ing, sketch writer, and you are impressed; by the uniform excellence of his work. Of course there are degrees of excel lence in imagination, and Gome things please us more than others, yet it is the writer of Imagination who lives. The average newspaper man can tell a story well; he cannot evolve anything great, because he lacks that touch which comes so close to genius and which is the element of permanent success. Sarah Grand, .whose 'Heavenly Twins' is so much talked about today, and •lota.' who wrote 'A Yellow Aster,' are of the fleeting type and will be forgot ten in a tew years. 1 know you don't like ire to talk this way about your friend, but one should not blind himself to facts." Relieved of the embarrassment caused by the scene at the be^i" uinjr or the visit, tho two, straying into current literature, lound that their views were strangely alike. "Tell me.': said Mrs. Clementry, "wliat you think of 'Peter lbbetson.' 1 like it better than 'Trilby,' and 1 think it is stronger." '•It shows far more imagination," said Wai burton, "although really His less interesting. In the beginning it is weak, and Dv Maurier has an unfortu nate habitot throwing in flippancies here and there, like that Sayres scene, which must grate upon sensitive minds. "Trilby" is more taking than "lbbet son," because there is more everyday human nature in it. One has more friend* in the characters. 1 don't know if you have ever thought of it in this way, but one of the greatest charms in a novel and that which interests one most is the friends he makes with the characters. In "Trilby" you cannot help liking Bit Taffy and the Laird. They carry the story for interest. The strength, however, is in Svengali, who was great, although not admirable. Trilby did not move me because she was a rather forced production. 1 doubt, however, if most people will agree with me about her." "1 don't think that Dv Maurier was really fair with Sver.gaii," Mrs. Cienien try interjected. "He was really.a gen ius. His taking Trilby's great voice and singing with it is the one idea of the book." "1 agree with you. Dv Maurier's mistake was. his affection for Little Billee, who, 1 think, is most uninterest ing." The conversation drifted along. Mrs. Clementry had ideas and much orig inalty of thought. Warburton was sur prised at her broadness and courage. She had traveled considerably, and had put herself out tn talk with the writers ot books in which she was interested. She told him some things about Beatrice llarraden that rather surprised him; how this woman, au invalid, had told her tbat it took months to write "Ships That Pass in the Night;" that she had no stenographer, and had penned line by line herself while in great physical pain. "'Ships That Pass in the Night,'" said Warburton, "is a refreshing little story, but it does not show a great amount of mentality in the writer. Its real charm is its cleanness and the im pression that you get as to the purity of mind of the author.-- After I read it 1 ran across some sketches by the same writer,amoug which was the "The Um brella Mender." to which "Ships That Pass iv the Night" is a sequel, the child of the artist Bernard being the Ber nardine, and the umbrella mender the old bookworm. This later story always impressed me as most weird, and gave me doubts as to the author's sanity." Mrs. Clementry came back every lit tle while to "Peter lbbetson," in which she showed more than casual interest, and which she really thought more of at this moment than..ever before. Per haps it was because of the gulf that separated Ibbetson, ; and Mimsey, and that Warburton' was i going away." The spiritual union of the Duchess and the prisoner was moving her strangely. Warburton glanced at the mantel clock. "Do you know," he said, "it is after eleven? 1 have never knowu time to pass more quickly." He arose to jjo. Sirs. Clementry stood too. her graceful figure luclining to wards him. "When do you start for South Amer ica?" she asked almost timidly. "A week from today," he replied. "Won't yon come and : see me before you kg?" He hesitated before answering. •'I promise you," she said, "not to prevent your departure, for 1 realize it is better you should tjo." "1 will see you," he said simply. "Tomorrow evening?" she asked. "Tomorrow evening." And Warburton walked down the stairs, his heart expanding by* what Dv Maurier would have called "her dove like look of soft and warm solicitude." IV. It was Warburton's day for sailing. He had not slept well. Morning found him restless, depressed. He had seen Mrs. Clemently daily since he had told her lie was gointr. She had grown upon him. She showed him the finer side of her. nature, as women will do to men they care-for. The parting be knew would be heart-wrenching tor him. He ate little breakfast, mechanically glanced through his paper without un derstanding what he read, and waited impatiently for 2. the hour that he was to call and bid her good-bv. The steamer sailed at 5. And Mrs. Clemen try. how was this parting affecting her? She could not have told you herself. When Wui'our ton was ushered lv she held out her hand to him with the timidity of a trirl of eighteen. "Well." said Warburton, with forced cheerfulness, i have come to bid you good by and jret your God speed." "You knew you would have that." she answered. "What time will you have to leave here to catch your steamer?" "It sails at 5," he replied. "and the drive to the pier is half an hour." The ninety minutes seemed a very short time, considering that he would be gone tor years—that, be would not see her again. A look of pain crossed his face, and the woman in her—that protecting tenderness— made her yearn to put her arm about his throat, to draw him to her. 10 comfort him, to tell him that she loved him, that if it would make him happier she would abandon everything, sacrifice everything and co with him lv the end* ot the earth. And he was soothed by ihis unspoken sym pathy. "Ism e!ad and sorry that I met you " he said after awhile; "glad because you have awakened in Die the truest affec tion 1 ever felt, sorry because 1 may never see you asain. Of course 1 shall suffer, but 'suffering caused by absence has with it a ran- sweetness that, niiti eates the pain. There is no bitterness ton-no sting. It finally becomes lev- erence." But the pain was there all the same,) ami lie walked to the mantel and aim lessly toyed with the bric-a-brac, that he might not show too much feeling Mrs. Clementry came near him. "Such reverence is sweet indeed," she said sollly: "but believe thai 1 will suffer mure than you. 1 know that you will forget me in time, that you will meet another woman whom you will love with the great strength that is within you, and whom 1 even envy now I felt when 1 lirst met you that you wen: different from most men—more earnest, more sincere. i felt piqued at your neglect: I thought about you. You must know what tins means to an idle aimless woman. Then 1 saw you that nicht at -Carmen.' The thought that you were with auo.her woman disturbed me. 1 could not resist sending for you and now—now I realize the mistake"" '■ the plasticity of Rffeetlmi is our great salvation," he said. "When we part from those we lo\ o , as when wo .0.-c lie loved by .dealli, wo reproach ourselves always. Yet wo act accord- Ing to o! r lights.

The little clock upon the mantel chimed the last half hour. He took her hand, pressed it to his lips, and was gone. Mrs. Clemcntry threw herself ou the the big mahogany couch, burying her face In the soft piilow. forgetting every thing but that which had gone from her life. "Will madam see Mr. Shirley?" said the sphinx-faced servant, entering with a card, "lie is down stairs." "Tell him no, no, no," was the almost hysterical answer. "I never want to see him again." The man stood impassive. "1 did not understand-, madam," hu said. Mrs. Clementry recovered herself. "1 said tell Mr. Shirley 1 am out."

New York Mail and Ex press. - Seven-tenths of the clothing salesmen ; in New York are acquainted with Solo nion Ilecht, of Pittsburg, who is known among his intimates as "Look. Back Sol," because of a peculiar habit he possesses and which he has in vain tried to break. Whether Mr. ilecht is walking on the street or in a parlor, he turns his head at intervals of about two minutes and looks at the heel of his right shoe. Ordinarily such an action would attract no atteutiou, and it does not in Mr. Hecht's case when a person sees him turn his head once or twice, but when he does it a hundred times in a mile walk it is bound to be noticeable. If you will picturu in your mind a man turning around to see whether the edge of your trouser leg is touching the ground, you will understand Mr.Hecht's motion. He says it was due to that originally, and that it has become such a fixed habit that he does it uncon sciously. A brother salesman who ob served the peculiarity remarked, after studying it attentively, "1 guess Sol keeps looking around to see whether he is well heeled or not." i — • ' Cheap Excursion Kates To Canada and the East via Chicago Great Western Railway are now on sale.

Owe year ago today we announced a stupendous Silk Sate, and Tor nine weeks thereafter the Silk selling was wonderful enough to attract the attention of the dry goods men of the nation. THIS MORNING we begin an Anniversary Silk Sale that will be quite worthy of, if it does not eclipse, its predecessor. We are aware that in adver tising a great sale of Silks on the day after Christmas, when every one may be supposed to have expended heavily for gifts, we are doing a very unusual thing, and attempting something that ordi* nary, slow-going merchants will say now, as they said a year ago", was impossible of achievement. But everything depends on the values we have to offer, and knowing, as we do, what these are, we are more titan sanguine of success. We have been preparing for this sale for months, and have accumulated such an array of bar* gains as will surprise everybody. Come in and see what we have to offer. Our buyers have se cured values better than were ever offered at any fire sale, ami those who come will be well repaid for coming. 1 For Return Presents and New Year's Gifts ART WIRES AND rfliiyi BfIOHT »" ■■ Including everything in the ART DEPARTMENT, will be sold at 25 Per Cent Discount Until Jan.
