Mrs. Vandaveer asked Jimmy.. "On Elizab-th street Down in Greenwich Village. Elizabeth street used to ba a fashionable rtsidential street several decade) ago. It's shabby now." "But full of atmosphere," she supplemented. "I Bupposfl you have a studio?" "Of sorts. More of an attic with a good-sized skylight. But it suffices." Mrs. Vandaveer clasped her hands dramatically together. Ha noticed she had beautiful, slim hands, extraordinarily whita. An effect produced by hand cream carefully applied after every washing, and by sleeping in rubber gloves nightly that were fairly lined with tissue creams but ha was, not to know that. "I would adors seeing your studio. Would you think it a bother if I dropped in some afternoon to look at your work?" What could he say but that he would be glad to see her, although he was afraid sha would not think much of his abode ? "But I'm mad about artists. I mean" she corrected herself quickly "I'm enormously interested in creative work. Over in Paris I've loads of friends who are painters and writers and sculptors, and some of them live in the Latin Quarter." A delightful memory cam back to her. "I even had a studio once in Montparnaise where I hoped I'd do things. But I'm afraid I didn't accomplish much." Which was an understatement. Unknown to her husband Joel, who was residing with her in Paris at the time on the fashionable Champs Elysees, Lorraine had done plenty in her Latin Quarter studio, on the Bly. There had been the young painter, Raoul Destouches ... Then Anton KarislolT, the Russian sculptor ... How fierce but how wonderfully had Anton made lovel "I may be going over to Paris very shortly, said Jimmy Randolph eagerly, "because the School of Architectural Design in New York often makes an exchange of students on a phort summer course. Three or four French students come over here, you know, and New York ones take their place." "But how wonderful 1 may be f-oing over shortlyl" Lorraine gave dm the full benefit of her beautiful Jade eyes. "I usually go over to Paris for the late Spring race-meetings. Paris is romantic as a dream in the merry month of May. It would be fun to see Paris together, wouldn't it?" She smiled at him under her long thick lashes, and he had the curious, breathless sensation of drowning in shining green pools of light. ' Luana Waters quickly gained the reputation of being New York's loveliest model. Her success was amazing for an unknown girl. Needless to say, It aroused plenty of jealousy among th other mannequins in the House of Quackenbush. Success brings envy and backbiting, and all the mora so where beauty is involved. The pick of the big social functions in the well-known "little season" fell to Luana. Mr. Quackenbush was Bhrewd. He wished his loveliest and most talked-of model to appear at all the newest and smartest haunts and nightclubs where the rich foregathered, dressed in his most exquisite creations. She must appear, too, at the big charity balls, and at the smart race meetings. Indeed, everywhere that monde qui t'amute is found. Luana soon grew accustomed to it, and lost some of ler shyness, as was natural. What 19-year-old girl would fail to enjoy making a stir in expensive and exclusive places, secure in the knowledge that she was groomed and coiffured and dressed and shod exquisitely, and that the eyes of innumerable women and men tooattractive, important men-about-town were turned on her admiringly ? It was dazzling to a girl who had been kept short of money all her nineteen years, and whose existence had been almost that of the convent in its seclusion. Arrayed in dazzling gown, Luana would appear at the side of Adolphe QuackenbuBb on the opening night of plays or perhaps her new friend, Jimmy Randolph, would b her escort.

Keenly interested in any disclosure that will explain the repeated toits of mariners, describing huge sea-serpents seen in the waters of the earth, we find the mystery explained by Percy Spencer Barnhart. something of an authority on marine life, who is curator of a biological collection in California. According to this expert the sea-serpent is nothing but a king-herring, which is otherwise listed in the books on such subjects as Re-galecus russeli, Regalecus glesne or Trachipterus ijmae and is recognized as a heady body of the family Regalecidae.

Behind her back, Yvonne seldom lost a chance of belittling Luana to Armand, and even lying about her. "Sha is za deep one. 2e ateell waters run deep. If she is so good, so prop-aire, why she pick up a young man on ze roof-tops ? The nights I go out, he come in and is alone with her for hours and hours. Armand, it is my belief thees young Jeemy Randolph is her lov-airel" Armand fully believed It. Nothing would give him greater pleasure than to cut Jimmy out He believed, too, that Luana was merely coquetting with him when she repulsed him. Not that he had ever had a chance to put her to the test, since Yvonne had eyes like the proverbial hawk, and was jealous as a she-devil I To allay any suspicions about Luana, and the amatory feeling she had roused in him, he went Yvonne one better in his belittling of the girl when she was absent "American women have no Are, no emotion. Seldom is a Frenchman ever happy with an American," he would unctuously announce. "The women are all spoiled and selfish. They have no real passion." "How clev-aire you are, Armandl You are the ciev-airest, handsomest man in New York." Yvonne would fall into his arms, secure in the knowledge that what American women lacked, she had . . . plus.
