the musician one morning when this
conversation took pi: ice, and at this re
buff his brows knitted, his heart rank
and Lis brash fell from his hand.
"Well, of course, Herr Opper. I don't
wish to seem impertinent, but I met

"You did?" interjected the musician.
-'That is, I saw her heard her play,
and I have r-cen her every night during

have ever seen or dreamed of, and if I
could only paint her I believe tho pict

compliment to the girl's beauty, it sud

While he was away Opper got up to
stretch Ids legs, and in the circuit of the
improvised studio came upon a small
folio, which carelessly opened revealed a
sketch done on a btisiness card that fair

"Miss Neville!" he muttered to him
self. ' Then this is the villiau she has

well, well! this is great luck, i must go;
this i3 something remarkable!"
A few moments later, when Henshall
returned with his wife to propose an in
vitation for a supper party, he was sur
pii'icd to find the room vacant.
There was no sign of Herr Opper in the
hall, and as the elevator was at the bot
tom of the shaft he wisely concluded
that his visitor had gone. The next
thing was to send a playfully petulant
note after him by messenger, and urge
the importance of an early sitting for the
next morning. The reply dumfounded
Herr Opper would not be able to keep
the appointment nor m ik-i another until
his return to New York.
At the concert that night tho manager
could not be seen, and when he had been
repulsed a third time Henrv fell to
thinking with such fierce energy that he
did not notice the burly detective in
evening dress who followed him into the
hall and occupied the seat adjoining his.
When Dr. Watson reached
and came face to face with his wife and
his antagonist he was momentarily
"Curse the luck!" he thought to him
self. "There are four sleepers in the train,

how I calculated it would be awkward.

And lefore the astonished- old gentle
man ccald recover his senses at this un
expected burst of interest Dr. Watson
signalled a porter to conduct him to the
waiting room while he went to over
take Miss Brown, who had already ar
ranged her section for the journey.
"My dear," he said, taking her by the
arm, 'Tve changed my mind; come out
on the platform, I want to speak to you,"
anxious to avoid the possible recognition
of "his wife. "3Ir. Crawford is not well.

"Go to Miss Crawford at once, and
$.300 spot cash if you catch the bird
and hold her until we arrive. If any
thing happens I'll wire you and sign the
message 'Brother,' so as not to arouse
any suspicions in the mind of Miss Edna
should she chance to see it. That's all,
I guess. Good-by, sister. Won't you
shake hands? Well, have it as you like.
Be good to yourself and look sharp."
The bags and traveling blankets were
hardly gathered up when the bell rang,
the cry of "all aboard" was heard and
the tnin steamed out of the depot.
Dr. Watson called a carriage and or
dered the driver to take them to the Pal

By way of sustaining his apprehen
sions for the welfare of Mr. Crawford,
who was in reality very much prostrated
from the fatigue of the journey, the doc

he remained through the entire week.

j'ou. If we could only induce h ;r to
make a complaint against you I would
take the greatest delight in putting you
behind the bars, you scoundrel. As you
have asked for my name I will give you
my card. Here it is," and he handed
the artist a plain white piece of paste
: JIM BURNS, :
Detective foliee, Central Office. :
To say that Henshall was surprised
wouia 1x3 putting it mildly, lie was so
indignant and astonished by tho big de
tective's tirade that he could only Usten
in helpless amazement.
He took the card mechanically and
"She said she didn't want to seo me?
Why, she don't know me.
Burns laughed sarcasticallv as ho
turned away, saying:
"Remember, young fellow, I'll keep
my eyes on you," and before Henshall
could gather hiz wits sufficient to de
mand an explanation Burns ha4 disap
peared. The young artist found himself in a
ridiculous position, the center of a guy
ing mob, when he did recover himself.
"Get on to the Johnnie P "Pipe de
patent leathers!" ' 'He would be a mash
er, would he?" and other such uncom
plimentary allusions were showered on
him, so he hastily went around to the
front of the house and pushed his way
to his box, determined at the first op
portunity of having an explanation
"with Mr. Jim Bums, detective."
Two minutes after he had gone away
from the stage entrance a red headed
messenger boy shoved his way through
the crowd that still lingered there.
He rapped loudly at the door for ad
mittance, while those around regarded
him curiously, and many asked him,
"Nuthin'," was his nonchalant reply.
After a delay of several minutes the
stage door was cautiously opened a few
inches, and a portion of the good nat
ured Teutonic countenance of Herr Op
per became visible.
Seeing the boy in uniform he admit
ted him at once, asking: "Message? For
Without any undue haste, and mak
ing no reply, the lad unbottoned his
jacket, shoved his left hand carefully
into his inside coat pocket and pulled out
Opening this carefully he took out a
message addressed to "Miss Louise Ne
ville, Baldwin's theatre, urgent," and
handed it to the impatient manager.
As he saw the address the latter
turned as if to hurry away, but the im
perturable messenger caught him by the
coat tail, shoved his Httle black covered
book in his face and said:
"Sign, please. And say, give a fellow
a ticket, will yer?"
With a smothered execration the wor
thy Opper signed'for th3 message, and
never heeding the boy's other request
rushed off with the telegram to his star's
As he approached it he heard the low,
sweet strains of "Home, Sweet Home"
played with a touch on the violin which
made it fairly seem to speak.
The music ceased abruptly as he
knocked for admission, and the door
was opened by Miss Neville, who gazed
at her manager in a startle! way.
"Oh, Mr. Opper, is it time to go on? j
I had no idea that I was late." j
"You are not late. The curtain will ?
not go up for ten minutes yet, but this ,
dispatch just arrived and I thought it
best to bring it to you at once." Y
The girl's face turned deathly pale.

At -last ms heart gave a tnvat lamp
and then nearly stopped beating.
He saw her in a forward ear, her
shapely head resting in a pathetic way
on one little gloved hand.
Then indeed Henshall ktt hu reason,
and knew that the woman before him
was tho woman he truly love 1.
Forgetful alike of prudence and com

him and laid his band on her shoulder.

and said icily: "Please g. away. I do
