7TTm l we with a faint mlnelinK ot
' W"1 surprise. "My Itfe," i
By JEPFERY FARNOL
plained, "has been altogether a studious
one, with the altogether unnatural re
sult that I also am bound for Nowhere-in-Particular
with Just eight shillings and
sixpence In my pocket"
"And mine, as I tell you," aid ho,
"has been an altogether riotous one. Thus
each of us, though by widely separate
ronds you by the narrow and difficult
pth of Virtue, and I by the broad and
easy road of Kolly have managed to fln
our way Into this Howling Destitution,
which we will call Nowhere-ln-Partlcular.
Then how does your path of Virtue bet
ter my road of Evil?"
"The point to be considered." said I, "Is
not so much what we now are, but rather,
what we have done, and may ultimately
be and do."
"Well?" said he, turning to look at me
"For my own achievements hitherto,"
I continued, "I have won the high Jump
and throwing the hammer, also trans
lated the works of Qulntlllan, with the
Satyrlcon of Petronlus arbiter, and the
"Life, Lives and Memoirs of the Seigneur
de Brantome," which last, as you are
probably aware, has never before been
done Into the English."
"Ha!" exclaimed Mr. Beverley, sitting
up suddenly, with his Ill-used hat very
much over one eyo, "there we have ltl
Who ever heard of old Quln-what's-hls-namo,

few bald-headed bookworms and with

fellows I was living It. In my career,
episodically brief though It was. I have
met and talked with all the wits and
celebrated men, havo drunk good wine
nnd worshiped beautiful women, Mr.
"And what has It all taught you?"
"That there are an Infernal number
of rogues and rascals In the world, for
one thing and that Is worth knowing."
"Yea," said I.
"That, though money can buy nnythlncr,
from the love of a woman to the death
of an enemy, It can only be spent once
and that Is worth knowing also."
"Yes." eald I.
"And that I am a most preposterous
f ass I and that last, look you, Is more
valuable than all the others. Solomon,
I think, says something about a wise
man being truly wise who knoweth him
self a fool, doesn't he?"
"Something of the sort."
"Then," said he, flinging his hat down
upon the grass beside him, "what argu
ment can you advance In favor of your
'Nnrrow and Thorny'?"
"The sum of eight shillings and six
ponce, a loaf of bread arid a allco of
noble cheese, now no more," said I.
"Egad!" said he. looking at me from
the corners of his bltio eyes, "the argu
ment Is unanswerable, more especially
the cheese part, ngalnst which I'd say
nothing, even If I could." Having re
marked which ho lay flat on his back
again, staring up at the leaves and the
calm serenity of the sky beyond, while
I filled my negro-head pipe from my
paper of tobacco and forthwith began to
And presently, ns I sat alternately
watching the blue wreaths of my plpo
and tho bedragfeled figure extended be

arm and so lay, watching me.
"On my soul!" ho exclaimed at length.
"It Is positively marvelous." "
"What Is?" I inquired.
"The resemblance between you and your

ging my shoulders, "though personally
I was unaware of this fact up till now."

"Too much occupied In keeping to the

"Nevertheless the resemblance between
you. both In face and figure. Is" posi
tively Astounding! With the sole ex-
ceptlon that he wears hair upon his face
and is or a ruddy complexion, while you
are pale and smooth-cheeked as as a
"Or yourself!" said I.
"Ah exactly!" he answered, and passed
his fingers across' his chin tentatively
and fell again to staring lazily up Into
the sky. "Do you happen to know any
thing: about that most remarkable spe
cies of the 'genus homo' calling them
selves 'Bucks.' or 'Corinthians'?" he In
quired, after a while.
"Very little." said I, "and that only by
"Well, up to six months ago, I was one
of them, Mr. Vlbart. until Fortune, and
I think now wisely, decreed it other
wise," And herewith, lying upon "his back,
looking up through the quivering- green
of leaves, he told mad tales of a reckless
Prince, of the placid Brummel, of "Dash
ing" Vlbart. the brilliant Sheridan, of
,Fox, and Orattan, and many others,
wnoso names are now a byword one way
or the other. He recounted a story of
wild prodigality, of drunken midnight
orgies, of days and nights over the cards,
of wine, women and horses. But, lastly
and very reverently, he apoke of a wom
an of her love, and faith, and deathless
trust. "Of course," he ended, "I might
have starved very comfortably, and much
quicker. In London, but when my time
comes, I prefer to do my dying beneath
some green hedge, or In the shelter of
some friendly rick, with the cool, clean
wind upon ' my face. Besides She
loved the country."
"Then there are some women who can't
be bought?" sold I, looking at hhi glist
"Mr. Vlbart," said he. "so far as, I
know, there are two the Lady Helen
Dunstan and the 'Glorious' Sefton."
"The Lady Sophia Seffcn of Cam
bourne?" said I.
"And the Lady Helen Dunstan," he
"Do you know the" Lady Sophia Sef
ton?" "I have had the honor of dancing with
her frequently," he answered.
"And is she so beautiful as they say?"
"She Is the handsomest woman In
London, one of your black-browed, deep
eyed goddesses, tall and gracious, and
most nobly shaped; though, sir, for my
own part, I prefer less fire and Ice a
more gentle beauty."
"As, for instance, the Lady Helen
Dunstan?" sal,d I, ,
"Exactly!" nodded Mr. Beverley.
"lUferrlng to the Lady Sophia Sefton,"
I pursued, "she Is a reigning toast, I be
lieve?" 'Clad, yes! her worshipers are Iraion,
and chief among them his Royal Hlh
ness, and your cousin, Sir Maurice, who
has actually had the temerity to enter
the field as the Prince's avowed rival:
no one but 'Buck' Vlbart could be so
"A most fortunate lady!" said I.
"Mr. Vlbart!" exclaimed my compan
ion, cocking his battered hat and regard
ing me with a amoulderlnjr eye, 'Mr.
Vlbart. I object to your tone; the noble
Sefton'a virtue Is proud and high, and
above even the breath of suspicion,"
"And yet my cousin would seem to be
no laggard in love, and as to the Prince
his glance Is contamination to a wom
an." "Sir," returned Mr. Beverley very
earnestly, "disabuse your mind of all un
worthy suspicions, I beg; your cousin
she laughs to scorn, and his Itoyal High
ness she-had rebuffed as few women have,
hitherto, dared do." i
It would almost seem," said I, after
a pause, "that, from what I have Inad
vertently learned, my cousin has some
dirty work afoot, though exactly what.
J cannot Imagine."
My dear Mr. Vlbart. your excellent
cousin if loievef up to owetWg r

consequences, more than once, .owing to

"George?" said I.
"Exactly'" snld my companion, rais
ing himself on his elbow, nnd nodding:
"Have you ever heard mention of Tom
Cragg. the pugilist?" I Inquired, blowing
a cloud of smoke Into the warm air.
"I won 10.000 guineas when he knocked
out Ted Jarraway, of Swansea," yawned
mv rnmnnnlnn! "a mii1 Aehtnv. hut ft '
rogue like all the rest of 'em, and
creature of your excellent cousin's."
"I guessed as much." I nodded, and
forthwith plunged Into an account of t
my meeting with the "craggy one." the
which seemed to amuse Mr. Beverley
mightily, more especially when I related
Cragg'a mysterious disappearance,

eyes on the tattered lapel of his coat.
"tho resemblance served you luckily
there; your cousin gave him the thrash
ing of his life, and poor Tom evidently
thought he was In for another. That was
the last you saw of him, I'll be bound,"
"No. I met him afterward beneath the
gibbet on Itlver Hill, where, nmontt other
Incomprehensible things, he gave mc to
understand that ho recognized mo despite
my disguise, assumed, as ho supposed, on
uccount of his having kidnapped some one

my orders, or rather, It would seem, my
cousin a orders, the author of whlcn out

"The devil!" exclaimed Mr. Bevcriey,
and sat up with a Jerk.
"And furthermore." I went on, "he In
formed mo that the Prince himself had
g'lven him the word to leave London until
the affair had blown over,"
Now while I spoke, Mr. Beverley had
been regarding me with a very strange
expression, his cheeks had gono even
paler than before, his eyes seemed to
stare through, and beyond me, nnd his
hands were tight-clenched at hla sides.
"Mr. Bevorloy," said I, "what alls you?"
For a moment ho did not speak, then
answered, with tho same strange look:
"Sir Jasper Trent Is my cousin, slrl"
My negro-head plpo slipped suddenly,
nnd fell Into the grass, happily without
"Indeed!" said I.
"Can you not see what this means, sir?"
he went on hurriedly. "Jasper will fight."
"indeed, said I again, "I fear so."
"Jasper wns always a bit of a flsh, and
with no particular affection for his grace

And and he hardly knows one end of

"My cousin!" I exclaimed; "then It was
he to bo sure I saw only his back."
"Sir Jasper Is unmarried hns no rela
tions but myself," my companion repeat
ed, with tho same fixed Intentncss of
look; "can you appreciate, I wonder, what
this would mean to me?"
"Rank, and fortune, and London.'
said I. '
'No, no!" Ho sprang to his feet, and
threw wide his ragged arms with a swift,
passionate gesture. "It means Life and
Helen. My God!" ho went on, speaking
almost In a whisper, "I never knew how
much I wanted her how much I had wll
lully tossed aside till now! I never real
ized the full misery of It all till now!
I could have starved very well In time.
and managed It as quietly as most other
ruined fools. But now to see tho chance
of beginning again, of coming back to
self-respect and Helen, my God!" And,
of a Rurlilen, he cast himself upon his
face, and so lay, tearing up the grass by
handfuls. Then, almost as suddenly, he
was upon his feet again, and had caught
up his hat. "Sir," said he, somewhat
shamefacedly, smoothing Its ruffled nap
with fingers that Btlll quivered, "pray
forgive that little ebullition of feeling;
It Is over quite over, but your tidings
affected me, and I am not quite myself
at times; as I have already said, turnlDS
and unripe blackberries are not altogether
aeslrnDle as a diet."
"Indeed," said I, "you seemed strangely
"Mr. Vlbart." said he, staring very hard
at the battered hat, and turning It round
and round, "Mr. Vlbart, the devil Is sur
prisingly strong In some of us."
"True." said I.
"My cousin, S)r Jasper, Is a bookish
fellow, and, as I have said, a fool where
anything elm Is In question; If this meet
ing la allowed to take place, I feel that
he will most certainly be killed, and his
death would mean a new life more than
life tq me."
"Yes." said I.
"And for a moment, Mr. Vlbart, I was
tempted to sit down In the ditch again,
and let things take their course. The
dovll. I repeat. Is remarkably strong In
some of us."
"Then what Is your present Intention?"
"I am going to London to find sir
Maurice Vlbart to stop this duel."
"Impossible!" said I.
"But you see, sir, It so happens that I
am possessed of certain Intelligence
which might make Sir Maurice's exist
ence In England positively untenable."
"Nevertheless," said I, "It Is Impos-

all unheeded. "Do you mean" he
