That's a candid opinion about

"That will le about all for me," said
Violet. "I don't feel strong enough
tonight to stand any more of your
dramatic criticism. Lead me Lome
and please taik baseball all the way."
With a resentful grunt Mr. Pross
clamped a warm, moist hand round the
plump arm of his charmer and with
masterful address propelled Ler from
the curb in front of the theater, where
the little party had paused, to the
northwest corner of Broadway. P.
Sybarite, moving instinctively to fol
low, leaped back to Uie sidewalk bare
ly in time to save his toes a crushiug
beneath the tires of a hurtling taxi
cab. He smiled a furtive apology at Mol
ly Lessing. who Lad demonstrated
greater discretion, and she returned
the smile in the friendliest Jiannor
His heed was Iv.'zi'ing. and Ler eyes
were kind. Neither spoke, but for an
instant he experienced a breathless
sense of sympathetic isolation with
her. there on that crowded corner.
The wonder and the romance of the
piny were still warm and vital in Lis
Imagination, infusing Lis tlioughts
with a roseate glamor of unreality
wherein all things were possible.
For three hours he had forgotten Lis
lowly world, had lived on the high
peafes of romance, breathing only their
rare atmosphere that never was on
land or sea.
Difficult he found it now to divest
his thoughts of that enthrallment. to
descend to cold and sober reality, to
remember he was clerk, his compan
ion a shopgirl, rather than a prince
disguised as C'alauder esquiring a prin
cess dedicated to fatal enchantment
that "Kismet" was a quaint fallacy,
one with that whimsical conceit of ori
ent fatalism which assigns to each
and every man Lis day of days, -wherein
he shall range the skies and plumb
the abyss of Lis destiny alternately
lord and puppet-
liut presently, with an effort, blink

opening, the two scurried across and

a full block in advance.
"If we hurry we might catch up,"
suggested Molly Lessing.
"I don't miss "em much,' he admit
ted, without ofTerins to mend the pace.
She laughed softly.
"Are they really in love?"
"George is." replied V. Sybarite, aft
er taking thought.
"You mean she isn't?"
"To blush unseen is Violet's idea of
nothing to do not. at least, when one
is a perfect thirty-eight and possesses
a good digestion and an infinite capac
ity for amusement a la carte."
"That is tu say" the girl prompted.
"Violet will marry well if at all."
"Not Mr. Rross, then?"
"Nor any other poor man. I don't
say she doesn't care for George, but
before anything serious comes of it
he'll have to make good use of his day
of days if 'Kismet' ever sends him
one. I hope it will." P. Sybarite add
ed sincerely.
"You don't believe really"
".lust now? With all my heart: Pin
so full of romantic nonsense I cat:

Again the girl laughed quietly to hi
"And si nee you're a true believer.
Mr. Sybarite, tell me what use you
would make of your day of days."
"1 Oh. I" Smiling wistfully, he
opened deprecatory palms. "Hard to

uous fool in George's esteem equally
with old Hajj. I'm sure that, like
hi:n. the sunset of my day would see

"Put why?"
"I'm afraid I'd try to use my power
to right old wrongs."
After a pause she asked diffidently,
"Your own?"
"Perhaps. Yes, my own. certainly.
And possiLly another's, not so old. but

"Pre an intuition. She wouldn't be

Tier laughter at this absurdity was
delightful. Whether with or at him.
It was infections. Ue eefcood it with
out misgivings.
"Put. seriously, you're not sure, are
you. Mr. Sybarite?"
"Only. Miss Lesslng." he said sober
ly, "of my futile, my painfully .futile,
good will."
She seemed to start to speak, to
think of it. Jo fall silent in a sudden,
shy constraint. Compunctions smote
him. With his crude and clumsy ban
ter he Lad contrived to turn her
tlioughts to sadness. lie would have
given worlds to undo that blunder, to
show her ttvit he had meant neither a
rudeness nor a wish to desecrate her
reticence, but only an indirect nssur
ance of gratitude to her for suffering
him and willingness to serve her.
He respected her silence ami held Lis
own in humility and mortihVation of
spirit until they were near the door
yard of their boarding Louse. And
even then it was the girl who loosed
his tongue.
"Why. where are they?" she asked
In nut-prise.
Startled o.;t of the deeps of self con
tempt. P. Sybarite realized that she
meant Violet and George, who were
nowhere visible.
"Violet said something about a little
supper in her room." explained the girl.
"I know." he replied. "Crackers and
cheese, beer and badinage, our humble
pleasures. You'll be bored to extinc

'It was kind of you to come." he
said jerkily in Lis embarrassment.
"I enjoyed every moment." sbe said
warmly. "Put that wasn't all I meant
when I thanked you."
His eyebrows climbed with surprise.
"What else. Miss Lessing?"
"Your delicacy in letting me know
you understood"
Disengaging her hand, she broke off
with a startled movement and a low
cry of surprise.
A taxicab. swinging into the street
from Eighth avenue, had boiled tip to
the curb before the gate and. pausing,
discharged a young man in a hurry.
In a stride this man crossed the side
walk and pulled up In silence, trying to
master the temper which was visibly
shaking him. Tall, well proportioned.
Impressively turned out in evening
clothes, he thrust forward a handsome
face, marred by an evil, twisted
mouth, and peered searchinsl.v at the
Instinctively she shrank back inside
the fence, eyins him with a look of
faseinated dismay. As Instinctively P.
Sybarite bristled between them.
"Well?" he snapped at the intruder.
An impatient gesture of a hand. Im
maculately gloved in white, abolished
him completely, as far at least as the
other was concerned.
"Ah! Miss T.esins. I believe?''
The voice was strong and musical,
but poisoned with a maliciou" triumph
that grated upon the nerves of P. Syb
arite. He declined to be alo!ished.
"Say the word." he suggested se
renely to the girl, "and I'll bundle this
animal bael; Into that tnxl and direct
the driver to the nearest accident
wnrd. I'd rather like to. really.'
"Get rid of this microbe." interrupt
ed the other savagely, "unless you
want to see him burled between glass
slides under a microscope."
The g!r! turned to V. Sybarite with
pleading eyes and imploring hands.
"If you pleuse. dear Mr. Sybarite."
she begged in a tremulous voice. "I'm

Hearing nothing, he made little more !

an angle of the fence- He seemed nt
onre insistent, determined and thor
oughly angry, while she exhibited per
fect composure with some evident eon
tempt and implacable obstinacy. Nev
ertheless, in a brace of minutes the
fellow seemingly brought forth some
telling argument. She wavered and
her accents rose in doubt.
"Is that true?"
"You don't dare doubt me!
"Very well." she said in a tone of
-Yoa'll go?" '
"Yes." )
He moved aside to give her way
through the gate, but she hung back,
with a glance for P. Sybarite.
"One moment, please," 6be said. "I
must leave a message."'
She showed displeasure in the lift of
her chin. "I think I'm my own mis
tressas yet"
He growled indistiuguishably.
"You have my promise." she cut him
short coldly. "Wait for me." And she
turned back to the house.
Wondering, I. Sybarite went to meet
her. Impulsively sbe gave him ber
hand, a second time: with as little re
flection he took it in both his own.
"Is there nothing I can do?"
Her voieejtvas broken: "I don't know.
I must go it's imperative. Could you
I wonder!"
"Anything you ask," he asserted con
fidently. Hesitating briefly, in a tonelittleabove
a whisper. "I must go," she repeated.
I can't refuse. But alone. Do you
"You mean without him?" P. Syb
arite nodded toward the man fuming
in the gateway.
"Yes. if you could suggest something
to detain him long enough for me to
get into the cab and say one "word to
the chauffeur"
"Leave it to me," said P. Sybarite.
"Molly!" cried the man at the gate.
"Don't answer." P. Sybarite advised.
"Do be quiet," suggested P. Sybarite,
not altogether civilly.
The other started as if slapped and
strode in to the stoop. "Do you know
who you're talking to?" he demanded
wrathfully. towering over P. Sybarite,
momentarily forgetful of the girl.
Stepping aside, as if in alarm, she
moved behind the fellow and darted
through the gate.
"I don't," P. Sybarite admitted ami
ably, "but your nose annoys me."
"You impudent puppy!" stormed the
other. "Who are you':''
"Who me?" echoed P. Sybarite in
surprise. tThe girl was now instruct
ing the chauffeur). "Why." he drawl
ed, "I'm the guy that put the ioint in
disappointment. Surely you've heard
of me?"
At the curb the door of the taxicab
closed with a slam. Simultaneously
the drone of the motor thickened to a
rumble. The man with the twisted
mouth turned Just in time to see it
drawing away.
"Hi!" he cried in surprise and dis

contrary, it stretched out toward

tail of his full skirted opera coat, he

With a vicious snarl, the man turned
and snatched at his coat. But P. Syb
arite added implacably:
"We were discussing your nose," he
At discretion, he interrupted himself
to duck beneath the swing of a power
ful fist. And this last, falling to find
a mark, threw its owner off his bal
ance. Tripping awkwardly over the
low curbing of the dooryard walk, he
reeled nnd went a-sprawl on his knees,
while his hat fell off and (such is the
impish habit of toppers) rolled and
bounded several feet away.
Releasing the cloak. P. Sybarite
withdrew to a respectful distance and
held himself coolly alert against repri
sals that never'cauie. The other pick
ed himself up quickly, cast alout for
the taxicab, discovered it swiftly mak
ing off. already forty yards distant,
and with a howl of rage bounded
through the gate and gave chase at
the top of Lis seod as the taxi turned
the northern corner.
Gravely, P. Sybarite retrieved the
stranger's hat. Then he went back to
the stoop and sat down.
Turning the affair over in his mind.
P. Sybarite decided (fairly enough) that
it was on the whole mysterious, lend
ing at least some color of likelihood
to George's gratuitous guesswork.
Certainly It would seem that one
now had every right to assume Miss
Molly Eessing to be other than as she
chose to seem. She might very well
be Marian Blesslngton after all!
In which case the man with the
twisted mouth was. more probably
than not. none other than that same
Bayard Shaynou, whom the young lady
was reported to have jilted.
Turning the topper over in bis hands,
it suddenly occurred to I. Sybarite to
wonder if he did not in it hold a valu
able clew to this enigma of Identity.
Promptly he took the hat Indoors to
find out. investigating it most thor
oughly by the flickering, bluish glare
of the lonely gas jet that burned in the

The ball rack was convenient. Hang

the card. It displayed in conventional
script the name Bailey Ponfield. with
the address. t)7 West Forty-fifth street.
One corner, moreover, bore a penciled
hieroglyphic which seemed to read. "O.

"Whatever." P. Sybarite mused,
"that may laeau."
Ue turned the card over ar-d exam
ined its unmarked and taciturn re
verse. Stealthy footsteps on the stairs dis
tracted his studious attention from the
card. He looked up to see George de

brown paper.

surprised. "Isn't she upstairs wiUi
