It was what in vulgar Kngllsh mlgh'
be callcil a mob. Tney wero standing,
sitting down and lying down In artistic
and comfortable positions all around
the room. Thoy wore different In man

thoy were nllko they wero nil smok

his cigar between his thumb and fore

of something, to tho Star Idiot with his
cigar In the extreme right comer of his

and never expected to, thoy wero all
pulling assiduously. The cause of this

cidentally his purso and bought a box

tho table, lCvldontly thoy were trying
to finish their present weed in ordor to
have anothor crack at the box which
( ws not yet empty.
Tho Amateur Thosplan lay at full
length on a tufted loung. with a clus
ter of rebellious curls over his eyes,
"looking just like n full grown cherub,"
ventured the Commissioned Officer,
wac received in roturn for his doubt
ful compliment, a Greek Lexicon on
tho sido of the head, thrown from the
unerring hand of the scandalized and
rovongeful aspirant for histrionic
laurels. Unlike most of his comrades,
the Amateur Thespian was not smok
ing against time for tlie very simple
and sufficient reason that he didn't
need to. Ho knew either by Invitation
or investigation that thore wore five
cigars in the capacious pocket of tJhe
Banjo Fiend's overcoat and ho had the
comfortable assurance that he was the
only one who did know it He was
moreovor quite confident that ho could
porsuado the Banjo FJond to offer him
at least two of ithem, so he smoked
away in his charactorisWc fashion.
The Star Idiot did not seem to be on-joj-ing
his smoke. To toll tho truth a
cigar did not agree with him at all and
ho never would have smoked had ho
not considered it indispensable in his
character of "man about town." The
smoke was always gotiuug in his eyes
and nose and after the first fow imffs
be was sure to grow faint and while he
was recuperating his cigar would go
out. Tli on tli ore was always ithe
haunting fear t3iat he would put the
wrong end in his moutfli. Between
this -uneasiness and the iaintness and
tho -unpleasantness or swallowing hair
tho moke, the Star Idiot was ill at
ease. He tried desporatly not to show
it, however, and sat with an assump
tion -or elegant -ease and languor, con
tinuously flicking off real or Imaginary
ashes from (the end of 'his cigar.
"ThlB is a Tory good cigar," re
marked the Banjo Fiend by way of
starting a conversation and contem
