Putting tho proffered complimentary

ried through tho llrst door he noticed,
through the Sehcrnierhoru building to

treasury and tho custom house to tho Han

Henry Hcnshull, who had becu dowu

ing on the same train as tho doctor, but ho
wis so deeply engrossed In his thoughts
that ho did not notlco tho former husband
of his fiancee's companion as he passed
through the car looking for a seat.
Tho young artist was downhearted, and
as the twin Aped up town ho wondered
what to do with himself to while nway tho
lie lifted his plcrchiv cues to SUtnmctz's
He did not care to go to his club, he had
no reason to go homo and ho had told MUs
ilartman not to expect him until Satur
day. When tho gunrd yelled "Fourteenth
street" ho suddenly determined to leave
tho train mid take a tablo d'hote dinner at
ono of tho Italian restaurants in that por
tion of tho city.
After his meal ho enjoyed a gpod cigar,
nnd then started to walk leisurely over to
ward Union square, along tho north side
of Fourteenth street. Before he had taken
many steps his artistic eye was attracted
by tho well rounded figure of it girl Just
nlicod of him, wiio curried a leather music
roll In her hand. There was something
familiar In her appearance, and ho quick
ened his paco to got a better look at her.

Ilenshall followed, thinking thai ho
might again have tho opportunity of step
ping between his ideal and one from whom
sho was evidently anxious to escape.
Ho was crossing Irving place when a
carriage drove past. He recognized It Im
mediately as Edward llartman's. Ho
hoped that tho occupants would not notlco
him, but ho was disappointed He was
walking ahead when he heard a familiar
voice calling his nnmo. Ho turned and
saw Mr. Ilartman beckoning to him. The

as quickly as his legs could wnlk
When he reached Union square ho looked
around In the vain hope that ho might
catch sight of Miss Crawford. She had
disappeared, and ho did not know which
way to turn. People surged around in
every direction, ami he knew that If the
girl had tried to escape she might have
taken a horse car, as long jis she had
reached the corner ahead of lilm
"Curse tho luck," ho muttered. "If It
hadn't been for that young Idiot on tho
block above I should have had her In safo
keeping before now."
Ho wctit over to tho Morton llouso cafe,
witjlown at ono of, tho tables and ordered
a glass of abslntho.
"I thought I had tlmo to catch her attain
I boforo she reached Union sciunre." ho
mused. "I wonder if she really walked

places on the south sldo of thostreet, that's
very sure. She might have entered Stein

This idea Impressed him as being very
good, and ho told the waiter to bring him
some more abslntho. As ho sipped the
liqueur his mind was active.

As Henry llenshiill went Into Steinway
hall he caught sight of Dr. Watson stand
liigoverat the right hand entrance. Their
eyes met, ami each folt that it was war to

"What rascality is he up to uowr" the
young artist muttered to himself, as hu

been thoroughly advertised. It wasclalined
that she was the "greatest of her sex In tho

Henry Ilenshall read this on the pro.
graiiimo with a smile. The concert was
well on In tho second half, ami a woman
was singing n solo when t hey entered. The
next number was by Schumann, und was
to be by tho brilliant "Loulso Nevlllo."
Tho hall was so full that lleushall's

greeting from tho public.
He glanced at tho liealltlful girl, who
advanced with a dignified maimer to the
front of tho stage, slightly smiling her rec
ognition of the greeting which had been
given to her.
One glance told him that loulse Nevlllo
was his Ideal of tho Wagner car. The fair
race was that which had haunted him so
constant!, waking or sleeping.
"(Jive me your glass for a moment," he
exclaimed excitedly to his friend, almost
snatching It from his hand. He leveled It
straight at the girl's face. Sho had put the
violin under her chin, and the fingers of
her left hand were lightly touching the
