In whli'h he kept the colleetion of play

there during Ida two or three years of
illlettunte traveling In strum,' coun
tries. At the same time he brought out
a Japanese cryKtnl ball. plnciuK It on a
little table In one of the windows on
each side of the fireplace: and then?
the rays of the western sun lighted It
P at once Into translucent loveliness.
The ret.urm.d wandered looked out of
the' window Hnd saw on one side tan
giuoet'ul und vigorous tower of the
Madison ttquurc Harden, with its Plana
turning in the December wind, while In
the other direction he could look down
on the frozen luitlis of I'nion Square,
only a block distant, but as far below
him almost as though he was gazing
town from a balloon. Then he stepped
back Into th" sitting room itself and
noted the comfortable furniture and
Wood-lire crackling in friendly fashion
on the hearth, und his own personal be
longings scattered here und there as
though they were settling themselves
for ti stay. Having arrived from Ku
rope only that morning, he could not
but hold himself lucky to have found
these rooms taken tor him by the old
friend to whom he had announced his
return, and with whom he was to eat
his Christmas dinner that evening. He
hnd not bf-n on shore more than six
or seven hour, nnd yet the most of bis
odds anil ends were imparked and al
ready In place nS though they belonged
In this 'new ubode. It was true that he
had tolled uncsusliiglv to accomplish
this: arid as he stood there In his shirt
sleeves, admiring the results of his In
Uors, he-was conscious also that his
muscles were fatigued and that the
easy chair before the lire opened Its'
arms temptingly '
He went ncnln into the bedroom nnd
took froi ie of his many trunks a
K'Ug. loose garment of pale gray silk.
Apparently this beautiful rube was In
tended to serve as a dressing-gown, and

iiiuiiedlutely. The ample folds fell soft

seemed to be soothing to his limbs, so
iicle'ute was its tlber nnd so carefully

skirt there was embroidery of threads
of gold, and again on the open and flow
ing sleeves. With the skillful freedom
of . Japanese ait the pattern of this
(Isolation seemed to suggest the
frVubhcty about a soring, for there
ele strange iilautr with huge leaves
Iroudly outlined It the golden threads,
and In the midst of them water was
eti bubbling from the earth and lap
piiig gently over the edge of the foun
tain. As the returned wanderer thrust
Ills arms Into the dressing-gown with
its symbolic cmbro'dciy on the skirt
and sleeves, hi" remembered distinctly
the dbunnl. day when be had bought it

where he had picked up each of tin if
pieces of'gold and silver, one after un

fbu'ie, which 1:5 had purchased from a
denier on the (rand Canal in Venice;
(ml the second was a. .-'.panlsh peso

The afternoon was drawing on. and
5n New York the sun sets early on
Christmas day. - The red rays shot into
the window almost horizontally, and
they tilled the crystal globe with a
curious light. CnHjno W'aynllete lay
buck In his eHsy chair, with his Japan
ese robe, about him. and gazed intently
at the beuutiful ball which seemed like
a bubble of air and water. His mind
went back to the' afternoon In April,
two years before, when he had found
that crystal sphere in a Japanese shop
within sight of the incomparable Fu
jiyama. As he peered luto its transparent
depths, which his vision focused upon

the spot of light where the rays of the
setting sun touched it into Hame, he
was but little surprised to discover that
he could make out tiny figures in the
crystal. For the moment this strange
thing seemed to him perfectly natural.
Ami the movements of these little men
nnd women interested him so much
that the lixity of his gaze was Intensi
fied. And so It was that in a few min
utes he saw with no astonishment that
he was one of the group himself, he
himself in the rich and stately attire
of u samurai. From the instil, that
Cosmo Waynotleti- discovered himself
among the people whom he saw mov
ing before him, as bis eyes were fas
tened on the illuminated dot in the
transparent bull, he ceased to see them
as little figures anil he accepted them
as of the full stature of man. This in
crease in their size was no more u
source of wonderment to him than it
hud been to discern himself In the
midst of them. He accepted both of
these marvelous things without pics
llon. Imbed, with no thought at all that
they were in any way peculiar or ab
normal. Not only this, but thereafter
he seemed to have transferred his per
sonality to the Cosmo Wuynllete who
was a Japanese samurai and to have
abandoned entirely the .Cosmo Wa.vn
tlet who was an American traveler,
and who had just returned to New
York that Christmas morning. So
completely did the Japanese Identity
dominate that the existence of the
A nu i lean identity was wholly un
known to him. It was as though the
American had gone to asleep In New
York at the end of the nineteenth cen
tury and hud waked n Japanese in Nip

Willi his sword by his side a Mnrl
tnasa blade, likely to gring bad luck to
the wearer sooner or laterj-ho had
walked from his own house in the iiinr
ter of Kioto which is called Yamashlnn
to the ipiarter which Is called Yoshl
w.nn. a place of III rcput". where dwell
women of evil life and where roysteivr
and drunkards come by night. Ho
knew that the sacred duty of avenging
his master's death had led him to cast
off his faithful wife so that he might
pretend to riot ill debauchery at the
SeaKhores The tame or ins
shameful iloinus had spread abroad
and it must soon come to the ears of
the man whom he wished to take una
wares. Now he was lying prone In the
street, seemingly sunk In a drunken
slumber so that men might see him and
carry the news to tin." treacherous as
sassin of his beloved master. As he
lay there that afternoon he revolved In
his nilnil the devices he should use to
make away with ills enemy when the
hour might be rigid at last for the ac
complishment of his holy revenge. To
himself he called the roll of his fellow
ronins. now biding their time, as he
was. and ready always to obey his or
ders and to follow his lead to the death,
when at last the sun should rise on the
day of vengeance.
So he gave no heed to the scoffs and
the jeers of those who passed along the
street, laughing him to scorn us they
beheld him lying there In u stupor from
excessive drink at that Inordinate hour
of the day. And among those who
came by at last was a man from Sat
sunia who was moved to voice the re
proaches of all that saw this sorry
'Is not Ibis Olshl Kurnnosuke-" cald
the innn from Satsiima, "who was a
councilor of Annuo Takunil no Kami,
and who. not having the heart to
avenge his lord, gives himself up to
women and wine'.' See how he lies
drunk in the public street! Faithless
beast! Fool and craven! I'nwortliy of
the name of a samurai!"
And with that the man from Pntsitma
trod on him as he lay there and spat
upon him und went away indignant.
The spies of Kotsuke no Suke licit rd
what the man from Satsuma hail said
and they saw how he had spurned the
prostrate samurai with his foot: and
they went, their way to report to their
master that he need no longer have any
fear of .councilors of Asano Taktuni no
Kami. All this the man. lying prone In
the dust of the street, noted; and It
made his heart glad, lor then he made
sure tliut the da;, wus soon coming
when he could do his duly at last and
take vengeance for the death of his
lie lay there longer than he knew,
ami the twllfrkl settled down at last,
anil the evening stars came out. And
then, alter awhile, and by Impercepti
ble degrees. Cosmo Wnynllcte became
conscious that the scene hud changed
and that he had changed with It. He
was no longer in Japan, but In Persia.
THE SCALY MONSTER CAMK Fl'Lt,
He was no longer lying like a dmnknrd
in the street of a city,' but slumber
ing like a weary soldier In a little oasis
by the side of a spring In tho midst
of a sandy desert. He was asleep, and
his faithful horse was unbridled that
It might' crop the grass at will.
The nir waH hot and thick; and tho
leaves of the slim tree above him were
never Btlrred by a w amlering wind.
Yet now -and' again there came from
the darkness a faintly fetid odor. The
evelilnir wore on and still hp slent un
til at length In the silence of the night
a Ftrnnge huge creature wormed its
way steadily out of its lair nmld the
trees, and drew near the sleeping man
to devour him llercely. lint the liorso
neighed vehemently and beat tho
ground with his hoofs nnd waked his
master. ' Then the hideous monster
vanished; nnd the man. arouned from
his sleep, saw nothing, although the
evil smell lingered in the sultry ut
mosphere. He lay down again once
more, thinking that for once his steed
had given a false n!nr:n. Again the
grisly dragon drew i-.Jgli, and again the
courser notified Its rider, and again the
man could make out nothing in the
darkness of the night; and again ho
was well-nigh stifled by the foul emii
nntton' that trailed 'In the wake of the
misbegotten creature. He rebuked
his horse and laid him down once more.
A third time the dveadful beast ap
proached and a third t line, the faithful
charger awoke Uj uujfry in inter. Hut
th-re came the breath of a gentle
biwi-, so that the man -did no.t tear
tt I'd his lungs: and th-rt was a vague
light ir. the heavens now. so that he
coillj dimly discern his mighty enemy;
and at once be girded himself for the
fieK. The scaly monster ram full
at him with dripping fangs, its mighty
body thrusting forward its huge and
hideous head. The man met the at
tack without fear and smote the beast
full on the crest, but the blow re
bounded from Its coat of mail.
Then th faithful horse sprang for
ward nnd bit the dreadful creature full
upon the neck and tore away the scales,
so that its master's sword could pierce
the armored hide. So the man was
able to dissever the ghastly nock and
thus t-iav the monstrous drano.i.
The blackness of night vrapied him
about once more as hj fell on his knees
and gave thanks for his victory; und
the wind died away again.
