just at this time of the year may be

Van Vechten'a admission was ac accepted
cepted accepted by Mr. Flint quite as a matter
of course; as if he would have been
exceedingly surprised if the young
man had identified the lady of the taxi-
cab with some other entirely different
person. Said he:
"I shall sketch briefly as much of
the Schuyler-Bonner history as. I have
learned; then, Mr. Van Vechten. you
will see what I want to know.
"In the seventies and early eighties,
Compton Schuyler was a prominent
figure, a man of affairs, in the New
York commercial world, and as for fortunes

man. Besides, he was of the old Dutch
stock; his home was a center of the
fashionable life of the city. Two beau beautiful,
tiful, beautiful, charming daughters greatly en enhanced
hanced enhanced this attraction,- so that the
name was really better known socially
than in a business way. At that period
his home was looked upon as a man mansion,
sion, mansion, and that young man who stood
in the family's good graces counted
himself fortunate indeed.
"It was only an inevitable conse consequence

carried a long string of suitors in
their train, they were social favorites
and enjoyed the supremacy which for
several years discouraged all idea of

One misfortune followed another so
that in a remarkably short time the
family sank into comparative obscur obscurity,
ity, obscurity, and, in the cruel way society, has
of giving her erstwhile favorites the
cold shoulder, speedily forgotten.
"First, through a series of bad in investments,
vestments, investments, Schuyler lost the bulk of
his fortune. A few months previously
Josephine had married against her
father's consent, and her husband,
Percy Devereaux, showed the sort of
specimen he was by promptly desert deserting

Next, Mrs. Schuyler died suddenly.
"Hope of rehabilitating the family
and of recouping its dwindling for fortunes

suitors was one young man who was
not only her social equal, but heir to
one of the largest fortunes in the
world. Every mother in New York
with a marriageable daughter, to say
nothing of many abroad especially in
Ungland had marked this young man
for her legitimate prey; but he loved
Henrietta Schuyler and was so de devoted
voted devoted and open in his preference that
the matrimonial schemers were one
and all discouraged.
"But with all hi3 wealth and superior
position, the course of true love did
not run smooth for Temple Bonner.
The facts would make a plot for a
novel.- There was yet another young
man among those who came a-courting
at the old brownstone mansion, but
one vastly different in many respects
from Bonner. This man's name was
Willard Max Willard.".
"I've heard the name," muttered Van
"It was an irony of Fate," pursued
Mr. Flint, "that Bonner and Willard
should not only be friends, but the
closest sort of intimacy existed be between

"Willard lacked about every ad advantage

was poor, unattractive in appearance,
and had many peculiar traits which
made enemies where Templer Bonner,
won friends. He was regarded as a
visionary, a crank, a man who would
never make his mark. However, he
must have possessed some unusual
quality, because Temple Bonner had
implicit faith in him believed that he
was a genius of some sort; but it was
characteristic of Willard that he would

the idea was, that if Willard was suc successful,
cessful, successful, Bonner would abide by the
consequences; if not, then Willard
was to stand aside and give Bonner
his chance. Much of this is guess guesswork;

at this late day; but certain circum circumstances

that Max Willard had been the favored
j one all along. Temple Bonner went
abroad; within two months Willard
and Miss Henrietta had eloped and
were married; within ten minutes aft after
er after he received news of the runaway
wedding Compton Schuyler had blown
out his brains.
"There are the naked facts.
"Temple Bonne never returned to
America, and Max Willard, instead of
justifying bis friend's confidence in
his talents whatever their bent might
have been had dropped entirely from
sight. His wife, you tell. me, has been
dead a leng time; but were there no
children? Is Max Willard -still alive,

the runaway match, with all Its at-j
tendant circumstances, created some something
thing something of a stir at the time; some of
your older friends should be able and ;
willing to supply you with the facts." j
"Oh, I have no doubt that I can
learn all you want to know," agreed
Van Vechten. "Most of what you have
just told me is not exactly news; but j
I had forgotten it it all happened be-'
