Among the many huge curavanaaries
that of recent years have sprung up
In New York to provide luxurious'
quarters regardless of cost for those
who can afford to pay for the best,
Tione could rival the Astruria In size
Mid magnificence. Occupying an en
tire block in the very heart of the
residential district, it took precedence
over all the other apartment hotels of
tine metropolis as the biggest and
most splendidly appointed hostelry of
Jts kind in the world. It was, Indeed,
it small city In Itself. It was not nec
tary for its fortunate tenants to
leave It unless they were so minded.
Everything for their comfort and
jleasure was to be had without taking
the trouble to go out of doors. On
the ground floor were shops of all
kinds, which catered only to the
Astrurla'g patrons. There were also
n the premises a bank, a broker's
office, a hairdresser, and a postal tele
graph office. A special feature was
the garden court, containing over 30,
WW square feet of open space, and
tastefully laid out with palms and
flowers. Here fountains splashed and
an orchestra played while the patrons
lounged on comfortable rattan chairs
or gossiped with their friends. Up on
the sixteenth floor was the cool roof
garden, an exquisite bower of palms
and roses artificially painted by a
famous French artist, with Its rech
erche restaurant, Its picturesque
'tzlganes, and Its superb view of all
Manhattan island. '
The Astruria was the last word in
expensive apartment hotel building.
Architects declared that It was as far
as modern lavlshness and extrava
gance could go. Its Interior arrange
ments were in keeping with its ex
ternal splendor. Its apartments were
of noble dimensions, richly decorated,
and equipped with every device, new
and old, that modern science and
builders' ingenuity could suggest. That
the rents were on a scale with the
acandeur of the establishment goes
without saying. Only long purses
could stand the strain. It was a fa
vorite headquarters for Westerners
mho had "struck It rich," wealthy
bachelors, and successful actors and
opera singers who loved the limelight
on and off the stage.
Sunday evening was usually exceed
ingly quiet at the Astruria. Most of
the tenants were out of town over the
week-end, and as the rtstaurant and
Toof garden were only sllinly patron
Ized. the elevators ran less frequently,
making less chatter and bustle .'n cor
ridors and stairways. Stillness reigned
everywhere as If the sobering influ
ence of the Sabbath had Invaded even
this exclusive domain of the unholy
rich. The uniformed attendants, hav
ing nothing to do. yawned lazily in
the deserted hall. Some even in
duig'Hl in surreptitious naps in cor
ners, confident tint they would not
lie disturbed. Ca'.'ers were so rare
that when pome one did enter from

I wood sat before the fire puffing net

v.a was a litter of obj ts d'art. such
as would have flTled the heart of any
j connoisseur with joy. Oil paintings
j lu heay gilt frames, of every period
and school. Rembraiults, Cuyps, Uuys
j daels, Reynoldses. Corots, Heuners,
some on easels, some resting on the
floor; handsome French bronzes,
dainty china on Japanese teakwood
tables, antique furniture, gold em
broidered clerical vestments, hand
painted screens, costly oriental rugs,
rare ceramics all were confusedly
jumbled together. On a grand piano
iu a corner of the mom stood two tall
cloisonne vases of almost inestimable
value. On a desk close by were piled
miniatures and rare ivories. The
walls were covered with tapestries,
armor, and trophies of arms. More
like a museum than a sitting room, it
was the home of a man who made a
business of art or made of art a busi
ness. Underwood stared moodily at the
glowing logs in the open chimney
place. His face was pale and de
termined. After coming in from the
restaurant he had changed his tux
edo for the more comfortable house
coat. Nothing called him away that
particular Sunday evening, and no
one was likely to disturb him. Ferris,
his man servant, had taken his usual
Sunday off and would not return until
midnight. The apartment was still as
the grave. It was so high above the
street that not a sound reached up
from the noisy Broadway below. Un
derwood liked the quiet so that he
could think, and he w as thinking hard.
On the flat desk at his elbow stood a
dainty demi-tasse of black coffee un
tasted. There were glasses and de
canters of whisky and cordial, but
the stimulants did not tempt him.
He wondered If Alicia would Ignore
his letter or if she would come to
him. Surely she could not be so heart
less as to throw him over at such a
moment. Crushed In his left hand
was a copy of the New York Herald
containing an elaborate account of the
brilliant reception and muslale given
the previous evening at her home.
With an exclamation of impatience he
rose from his seat, threw the paper
from him, and began to pace the floor
Was this the end of everything?
Had he reached the end of his rope?
He must pay the reckoning, if not to
day, to-morrow. As his eyes wan
dered around the room and he took
mental inventory of each costly ob
ject, he experienced a sudden shock
as he recalled the things that were
missing. How could he explain their
absence? The art dealers were al
ready suspicious. They were not to
be put off any longer with excuses.
Any moment they might insist either
on the immediate return of their prop
erty or on payment in full. He was
In the position to do neither. The
articles had been sold and the money
lost gambling. Curse the luck! Every
thing had gone against him of late.
The dealers would begin criminal pro
ceedings, disgrace and prison stripes
would follow. There was no way out
of It. He had no one to whom he
could turn In this crisis.
Ann now even Alicia had deserted
him. This was the last straw. While
he was still able to boast of the
friendship and patronage of the aris
tocratic Mrs. Howard Jeffries he
could still hold his head high In the
world. No one would dare question
his Integrity, but now she had aban
doned him to his fate, people would be
gin to talk. There was no use keep
ing up a hopeless fight suicide was

He stopped In front of a mirror,
itaitletl at what he saw there. It
was the face of a limn not yet ;''), but
apparmtly much oMor. The features

dimly and looked p'otind fearfully. He.
'honght he bad ho:;rd a sound outside
He shuddered as h" glared toward the
Mule drawer on the right-hand side of
his desk, in which he knew there was
a loaded revolver.
If Alicia would only relent escape
might yet bo possible. If he did not
hear from her it must be for to-night
One slight little pressure on the trig
ger and all would be over.
Suddenly the bell of the telephone
connecting the apartment with the
main hall downstairs rang violently
Interrupted thus abruptly In the
midst of his reflections, Underwood
jumped forward, startled. His nerves
were so unstrung that he was ever
apprehensive of danger. With a trem
ulous hand, he took hold of the re
ceiver and placed It tojils ear. As ho
listened, his already pallid face turned
whiter and the lines about his mouth
tightened. He hesitated a moment be
'ore replying. Then, with an effort,
"Send him up."
Dropping the receiver, he began to
ws'k nervously up and down the

he expected exposure was at band.

Underwood laughed nervously. Af

Clod knows It's a precarious one!"
Reaching for the decauter, he added;
'Have a drink."
Rut Mr. Ilennlngton refused to un
bend. The proffer of refreshment did
not tempt him to swerve from the ob-

was talking, trying to gain time, his
eyes were taking in the contents of

"That's not true," exclaimed Under

telephone bell rang sharply. Under

to answer the call.

over the telephone. The name was re

nervously. "It's out out on proba

The Next Great Attraction to
Come to the Parmele Theatre
A new recruit to the "too small
band of Intelligent American play
wrights" is noted In the person of
Eugene Walter. Ills play. "Paid in
ICull," produced at the Astor theater,
New York, by Wagenhals & Kemper,
shows Mr. Walter, In W. P. Katon's
phrase, to have "decisively Joined"
the aforesaid band. Critics are as
one in admitting tho power of the
new drama; Mr. Katon of the New
York Sun confesses to the "thrill of
discovery" not aroused since "The
Great Divide" came before the public
two years ago. Mr. Winter of the
Tribune calls It "a strong play,
steadily Interesting and destined to
long-continued success." Alan Dale,
In the American, speaRs of It as "a
find," perhaps the best "find" of the
season. The sum and substance of I
all the criticisms may perhaps argue
that there Is more of promise than
entirely successful performance In
the work; but then It Is pointed out
that In this we have a second play of
a young dramatist. A legal contest
of managers over the rights of the
production of the play has brought
out the Interesting fact that the
author of the play, the distinct suc
cess of the year, has only recently
taken his meals in cheap dairy
restauranta and slept In Rryant park.
Mr. Faton thinks the author has "the
priceless posseslson of the born
dramatist," and gives the play's story
In these words:
" 'Paid In Full' opens in a Harlem
flat, the home of Joseph Rrooks and
his wife, Emma, young people worry
ing along on so small a salary that
they have no maid. Joe Is full of
bitterness toward his employer, Cap
tain Williams, president of the Latln
Ameiican Fteatnshlp company, a
veritable ex-sea wolf from the Pacific,
who applies to business his old
methods of the senior. That he Is
paid so poorly Inspires In Joe a kind
of half-baked socialism, which vents
Itself In ugly harangues at his wife.
Joe from the first Is a jxior lot, and
one Is little surprised when he begins
!o eU.nl his employer's money.
"That he stole for his wife's sake,'
na he tells her, Is quite true, lu a j
statement as another exhibition of
i niiilHlnu'ss. and the author passes on
to the further development, of his.
story. Oee wishes to cry 'Hold!' to
