"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

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

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

knows anything about it until the news
paper is delivered the next morning.
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.

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.

even the great ltFaust" nights of the

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.

"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 *--**•*

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. No one is perfect, no
one can overcome fate."
.They stood there, together by the man-
Ui^^u thJ-inug '-"■« mhei's buffer-,
ing—the woman's selfishness gone, the
man's honest affection protecting them
both.
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."

"Look Back Sol."
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."

'•The captain of an ocean steamer in

it is a fact nevertheless. It appears
that when a steamship enters water

runs faster. Such water usually sur
rounds the vicinity of bergs for many

therefore, is accelerated without the

BEGINS TODAY!
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.
