OOPYftlQHT BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION, 1001. PABT ONE-DEATH. CHAPTER I. HARRY TRENT'S NEW BOMB. It is less than twenty years since the Trent mtirder in New York, and it was one of the great sensations of the time. But tho Franco-German war, following close upon it, distracted public attention. The mystery connected with it was never cleared up, and today there are few people who remember it. It lies at the threshold of our story, however, and we must speak of it before going further. In the year 1870 the city, above Sixtieth street, was thinly settled. Upper Fifth avenue, with tho park on one side and a waste of vacant blocks on the other, was like a country road. There were irregular hollows, sometimes with stagnant water in them, or rocky hillocks, adorned with an occasional board shanty; but there was no promise of the array of palaces that look down upon the people's pleasure ground today. When, therefore, the year previous, Harry Trent had laid the foundations of his new house, half a mile or more beyond civilized limits, ho was called a clever fellow or a fool, according to the temperament of tho critic. Conservatives propesied that he would remain in lonely grandeur for twenty or thirty years to come, while optimists declared that ho showed oven more than his usual shrewdness in securing betimes a site which, later, was sure to fetch four or five times its present value. Harry Trent himself said little, but went on with his building. He was certainly no fool in a general way of speaking. He was between fifty, and sixty years of age, and his hair was white; but then it had been white since his youth, and his face looked fresh and young. In figure ho was above middle height, graceful and well built. His manners were exquisitely suave and courteous, and had a polish not exactly American. In fact ho had lived many years abroad, and was received in the best English and French society. He was a personal acquaintance of the late Emperor Napoleon III, and was said to belong to the Prince of Wales' set. But though cosmopolitan in his w«iy of life he was a good American iri his political and social opinions. It was his business that took him abroad. Stretched out on the rurj. He was of good family, and his father had left him a property sufficient to relieve him from tho necessity of work. But Harry Trent had not an idle bone in his body, and ho had no sooner completed his university career thau he gave proof of his activity. Instead of taking up a profession, however, or cultivating the fine arts—as his fine taste and organization might have led you to suppose ho would—he directed his energies to trade. After spending a few years in a banker's office, to learn the meaning of finance, he rented a place up town and appeared before a startled community as a diamond merchant. After all, if one must follow a trade, there are few articles of commerce more agreeable to deal in than diamonds. They are beautiful to look at, profitable to handle, and they stimulate the imagination. The romances of diamonds are among the most fascinating of the world's stories. The spell woven by these stones is mysterious; it differs from the vulgar craving for money. The living, changing, intangible spirit in them allures forever those who have once yielded to it. Its glory seems unearthly, for it is like nothing else of earth; yet one would scarce venture to call it heavenly. It gleams most brilliantly from the midst of human blood and crime and misery. The diamond necklace sparkles Jike a river of flowing light on a woman'? bosom; but on that river the souls of both man and woman are hurried Jo death, The hollow of an infant's hand may hold a gem able to raise an army or prayirton a city; yet it is but a form of the commonest of physical products. It is on? invincible love of beauty that gives it its value, yet all evil and ugly passions are its foster children. Its possession carries power, but ever threatens destruction. Be all that as it may, Harry Trent dealt in diamonds, and built fume and fortune from tfce»i. In a comparatively short time he became the best known and wealthiest merchant in the trade. No one was a eurev judge of their purity and value; diamowdsof unequaled purity and splendor seemed to crystallize beneath his fingers, Hfljjuewthe history and owners of all the great gems of the world, and stones weii believed to pass through his hands stm^ fa quality to any (wteyt, Witha]* !%* a|L true &&• him. He had footight aiicl sold the jewels of empires- He had Weighed in his balances the crowns of tho sovereigns of Europe. Ho had bargained with the shah and the sultan. In his books might be f ound the names of every millionaire of contemporary times, Half tho diamonds of Old World history either were or had been in his possession, and were replaced in the regalia of their putative owners by skillful imitations in paste. So ran the gossip, at Which Harry Trent, when he happened to hear any of it, would laugh heartily and declare that it was lucky nobody knew how really difficult it was for him to make both ends meet. The truth, as usual, doubtless lay between the extremes, but may reasonably bo held to have inclined toward the large extremity rather than tho small one. Kings aud queens and other people of august station are sometimes in pressing need of money, and have little except their jewels to offer in exchange for it. Their jewels may or may not be their personal property; at all events, paste reproductions are cheap and easily come by. Who knows, or can expect to know, whether the Regent do France, tho Paslia of Egypt, the Sancy, or even tho Great Mogul, are genuine or bogus? If bogus, where are the originals? Whispers have even been heard regarding tho Kohi- noor; but it is to bo hoped that, in tins case at least, there is no basis for them. Meanwhile Harry Trent continued diligently at work on his now house. We have seen many fine houses erected since then; but it is safe to say that Trent's house is still as good as anything in the way of a dwelling in New York city. Its excellence, however, lay not so much in external adornment as in the fittings and furniture insido. It stood on a corner lot—or rather on a corner lot and two adjoining ones— and there w.ts space on both sides of it, while at tho back was a roomy inclosuro and stables. It was built of a reddish graystone, with broad projecting windows admitting plenty of light. The plan of the rooms and staircases was most agreeable; at whatever point you stood you s}w around you only charming vistas, harmonious lines, soothing colors and spacious perspectives. Every room was a picture in itself, combining with tho others to form a more elaborate picture. Yet the eye was never wearied by petty details; the minor features constituted and contributed to tho whole effect instead of detracting from it. There was nothing in the house that did not belong to Harry Trent—not only in the ordinary sense of proprietorship, but as being the material incarnation of his thoughts, tastes and accomplishments. His house was ho—aiid it is paying him no small compliment to say so. A man's interior is not always so comely an object of contemplation. You might discover, indeed, here and there, a pictiiro, a statue, a sweep of drapery or a passage of color that indicated regions in the designer's nature of a somewhat sumptuous, sensuous or voluptuous tendency; but they were never obtrusive, never out of due subordination to the rest, and were after all only what would be expected from a man of. his artistic and generous temperament. But what was Harry Trent going to do with his new home? He was going to live in it, doubtless; but did he mean to live alone? This question had latterly thrown a good many charming women into a meditative frame of mind. , ft was known, of course, that Harry Trent had been married; but that was in his youth; his wife had died within a year and had left him childless. There was nothing, then, in tho way of his marrying' again, and upon other grounds such an event was probable. For, as has already been intimated, he was still to all intents and purposes a young man. That quality in him that led to his being called Harry Trent, instead of Mr. Trent, or Henry, may serve to convey one meaning. He was still in the swim; he was not on the retired or retiring list; ho was modern and active, not fossilized and antiquated. Men younger in years than he had not half his elasticity and vitality. He kept pace with the times and looked ahead rather than backward. Moreover, he was fond of society and constantly in it, and a man more liked by women could not be found. It was not that he dazzled them with his own brilliancy, but he made them brilliant; he drew from them the best that was in them and enchanted them with themselves. Mirabeau had the "don terrible do la familiaritej" Harry Trent had the no less terrible gift of sympathy—magnetic sympathy (to employ once again that abused adjective). There was a vigorous, masculine fiber in him that never fails to attract tho other sex. They felt that he understood them and could manage them—C9ulddo the thing they wished to have done, whatever it might be. This, of course, is not quite the samo as saying that "the American Castellani" (as he was sometimes styled) was a-man whom women could afford to trust. There were stories about him—never fairly authenticated, however — that pointed to a different conclusion. If we give ear to the gossip of tfce world, who would escape? Hftrry Trent was a man of the world, and he was a highly cultured, a fastidious man. Low intrigues would not come in his way; on the other hand, h« made no profession of saintship; he went to church, and was privately charitable; for the rest, you moat take him for what he appeared, and he wau taken for an uncommonly fine fellow. But to return to the marriage question, The opinion gained ground that Harry Trent contemplated matrimony, though no geer was found bold enough to point out the particular woman who was to enjoy the good fortune at being made his wife. Some fancied it might *be the handsome New Orleans widow, Sally Matcbin, who was known to have been on terms of cordial friendship with him for many years, and at whose house iu West Eighteenth street Ue waa often seen. But experienced crimes ol \ had fhe been tm Jwta§i| Carry's by marriage. But Olympia was eally too young/ even for Harry, and resides, he had quietly made known his ntention of inviting her and her mother o come and live with him— which, it vas agreed, he would scarcely have done xad he meant to wed her; nor would he lave settled an income of eight thousand year on the mother and daughter had 10 looked forward to becoming the ormer's son-in-law. So one hypothesis after another was advanced and rejected, and at the end nobody was wiser than at the beginning. The house' was completed in what eemed, judged by our standards, a wonderfully short time, for it was ready to >e lived in before the end of tho winter eason of 1870— say iu carnival time. 3ut Harry Trent had himself superin- ;ended the work in all its stages, and lad seen to it that the workmen's hours of rest did not exceed their hours of la)or. And yet, when all was done and 'ebruary was drawing to a close, he still delayed moving in. It may have )een merely accident; it may have been ihat he was waiting for Olympia Raven md her -mother to get ready, or, posai- ily— for all men have their weak side— was the least bit superstitious and was haunted by a recollection of that old* proverb, "When the house is built death enters in." But he was strong ind healthy, in tho full enjoyment of a ife that had never met with a serious 'ailure or disappointment. In every- ;hing he attempted he had been success- :ul, and either prudence or a naturally lappy temperament had kept him from spoiling his nerves and digestion by too anxious and assiduous labor. If ever the afternoon slope of a man's life promised to be sunny, easy and prolonged, it promised so to him. He had built a iiouse perfectly adapted to his needs; it was ready to receive him; 'his many friends, impatient for the house warming, were counting tho days that had to elapse before Lent came and postponed tho celebration to a remote Easter— and still Harry Trent made no sign. What was the matter with him? Ho had, in fact, visited the house almost every day, letting himself in with liis passkey, and sauntering through the beautiful rooms, where fires were kept burning in the open grates by the care- bakers in charge. He contemplated the interior from all points of view and in all moods, sometimes tentatively making a slight modification of arrangement, which he was as likely as not to restore the next day. He seemed loath to persuade himself that all was really just as he would have it, and yet he could devise no improvement. So might a lover study the face of his mistress, afraid to believe that her lovely features were absolutely without flaw, or so might any mortal regard the most nearly perfect earthly achievement, unable to suggest any bettering of it, and yet vaguely conscious that, in some • way, nothing of this earth could be perfect indeed. The twenty-fifth of the month arrived and found the situation unchanged. Harry Trent had on that day gone to afternoon tea at Mrs. Matchin's, it being her day at home, and had remained till after six o'clock. A dozen other people were present, and the talk was lively. Harry himself seemed in particularly fine spirits. When ho took his leave Mrs. Matchin accompanied him to the anteroom and stayed there a few moments speaking with him in an undertone. They were undoubtedly on confidential terms, and (for every straw must count) it sent up her stock as tho possible Mrs. Trent several degrees. She came back with a deepened color and a mysterious smile, and entertained her company more brilliantly than ever. Harry Trent walked to his club, only a few blocks off, where he temporarily had rooms, and took dinner there with two or three friends, one of whom was his chief clerk. The latter afterward drank coffee with him in the smoking room. At about eight o'clock Trent left the club without saying where he was going, and he did not come back that night. Lot us follow him ourselves. A recent spell of warm weather has melted the snow from the streets, but now it has fallen clear and cold again. The dry, bracing air tingles in the nostrils. Harry Trent throws away hia cigar and fills his lungs with the frosty distillation of the stars; then he buttons his coat across his chest and steps out at a sturdy pace. His white hair glistenslike silver beneath the rim of his silk hat; his ruddy, kindly, handsome face, with its aquiline nose, blue eyes and well set lips, is alternately revealed and shadowed as he approaches and passes tho street lamps. At the corner- of Twenty-sixth street and Fifth avenue, where the up town Delmonico's now stands, he halts and seems to deliberate. A beggar creeps up and mumbles a petition. Harry looks at him a moment and then draws off his glove to give him a quarter. A woman walks by him, lingers and turns Jo pass him again. Harry says, "Take care, my child; there's a policeman round the corner!" A hack driver draws up at the curb and touches his hat. Harry hesitates. There wefe no elevated roads in those days; but finally he shakes his head and continues his walk up the avenue. "It will do me good to foot it," he says to himself. '-'What's a couple of miles!" Soft*ied Ugh* comes through the curtained windows, on either side of the street; carriages rumble up and down over the uneven pavement, ever and anon pausing to set down their occupants at a carpeted doorway. At Thirty- sixth street Harry pauses again, and before his mi»d rises the picture of the young Oiympia, a figure of youth, health and arch intelligence, wUo is even now, perhaps, thinking of him, only a few doors away, 8fcgjl be go in and pass the evening there? Ee nearly .yields to the suggestion, and takes a step' or two in that direction., But no! he had promised himself eom^tbiflg different; he will He blood, and his heart is light. The constant success of his life has had its effect upon him. He does not believe that misfortune can overtake him. Mortal man seldom or never lives to Harry's age without having done something that ho ought not to have done. Yet he has done much good in the world. His reputation among his fellows is untarnished. If he have enemies they have not declared themselves. But has he ah enemy? At any rate, ho fears none. Like other fortunate men, he has faith in his star; like them, too, he forgets the legend of Croesus. By this time he has passed beyond the most thickly settled portion of fashionable New York; the rumble of carriages is less frequent, and there are gaps between the houses. Foot passengers arc few. His steady footsteps are echoed distinctly from tho frozen pavement. His shadow only attends him as he walks, now lengthening behind, now slipping beneath his feet and starting out ahead of him. Darker shadows gather in the side streets. As he reaches the park something seems to detach itself from the duskiness on the left and move forward to where a broken boarding bespread with a gaudy placard announcing the appearance of a favorite actress in the tragic drama of "Leah" provides a convenient screen. Harry Trent passes steadily on and the shadow follows him. And now, at length, the goal of the little journey is in sight. There stands the new house, solid and shapely on its strong foundations, built to last and to be the abode of prosperity and happiness. As Harry Trent approaches it he slackens his pace, and a proud glow of proprietorship expands his breast. He sees, as in a swift vision, the perspective of the years to come. Within these four walls is to begin the long succession of a happy posterity. Rich, powerful and peaceful, they shall take their place as the best typo of the foremost nation of the earth. The women shall be beautiful and bountiful, the men eminent and honorable, friends of the great and great themselves. The house of Trent! It stands dark and empty now, but the hour is at hand when its windows shall be illuminated and its doors opened, and all the city come to do it homage. There is pleasure for an imaginative mind in doing privately and, as it were, by stealth things that ordinary persons would make no secret about. Harry Trent, in spite of his proved and practical business sagacity, has a lively imagination; and, as the miser steals off to count his money, or the lover to serenade his lady love, so had Harry become infatuated with the idea of spending an unsuspected night in his new house. He would not share with any other that virgin experience, and it would be agreeable in after years, amid the stir and voices of an overflowing family and social life, to look back upon this first night of solitude and meditation. With an inward smile of satisfaction, accordingly, Harry Trent ascends the steps and puts his key into the lock. The door yields before him and swings on noiseless hinges, but as he closes it the hollow sound resounds through the darkness. Hereupon, presently, steps are heard in 'the distance, and a light appears, earned in the hand of the faithful caretaker, who, .with his wife, maintains guard in the basement. Strictly speaking, of course, Harry will not pass the night alone, nor, perhaps, can a man of his business and social importance ever hope to escape entirely from the knowledge and supervision of his fellows. It was possible that several persons'might know of or suspect his present whereabouts. But, on the other hand, caretakers can hardly be said to count as occupants, and if a man believes his movements to be untraced, he is just as content, for the time being, as though they really were so. "You're not dozing at your post, I see, sergeant," says Harry, for the man was a veteran of the war. "How is Mrs. Simpson?" "In good health, sir, and thank 'ee; we wasn't looking for you so late." "The fact is, sergeant, I've come to spend tho night. Is the bed ready?" "It is, sir, and a good fire in the grate." ' "That's right! I want to find oat, you see, what sort of dreams the new house will give me." "May they be good ones, sir; you'll come honestly by 'ein. If any one calls Will I let "em in?" "Well, visitors are not likely to be fre quent this evening. This is something in the way of a scout reoonnjiisance, you Understand. However, if any one does come it will be on particular business, 1 should suppose; so they may come up." ' 'Very good, sir. You'll not be turning in quite yet, sir?" "No, not for two or three hours, probably. Goodnight," "Good night, sir, and a pleasant awak ening!" * * * * * * With the dawn of" the next day came snow, covering the roof of the new house and the stone steps of the entrance and the vacant avenue. Sergeant Simpson aroused himself betime, aud having filled a coal scuttle with coal mounted the stairs to the door of the library, which communicated with the chamber in which Harry Trent was to have slept. Fhe library door was ajar aud the ser- jeaut was surprised to see the light of the gas within still burning. Had the waster fallen asleep in his chair? He knocked softly, and then there being no response he ventured to push open the door and enter. The gaslight falling on the broad table that stood near the fireplace cast a shadow over the hearth rug, so that the sergeant did not at first see what lay there. He noticed that the last embers were expiring iu the grate, but as he ttitepped round the corner of the table he started, and the coal scuttle feu from uia band with a crash. Stretched out on the — but in an oddly constrained poai- Jay the form o* ~ ~ ' .ftoiee. of the ' rotn a stroke of the heart or of apoplexy. le was not prepared for the further rev- lation, and as he realized it a groan of lorror burst from him. Prom the back of the neck, a little to he left, protruded the hilt of a knife or dagger, curiously carved. The rug was oaked with blood. Harry Trent had lot died a natural death, nor had he lain himself. He had been murdered. (To he Continued.) Earrings of tho Greeks aud Romano. Ladies and waiting maids among the ancient Greeks and Romans wore plain loops of gold or silver in their ears, and s time progressed these became more laborate, precious gems being set in hem. Many Roman matrons poesessed arrings of the most costly and gorge- us description, the settings being worth housands of dollars. One of the most fashionable patterns •ffected by those of rank and wealth were modeled in the form of an asp, vith a golden body shaded with gems of he first water. Earrings that bore the miniatures of the dear friends or relatives of the wearers were quite fashion- He at a very early day, and in many iases they were attached in the form of leudants. In ancient Egypt and India those made in imitation of the lotus and Bengal roses were sought after in preference o all other designs.—Detroit Free Press. The Buffalo an Inland Animal. Ours is not a buffalo climate. Four mrvivors of that humpbacked race were brought to Golden Gate park, and three if them died during the effort to become kcclimated. No man ever heard of buf- alo near the sea. Neither in Hakluyt's •oyages nor in any other compilation of he log books of discoverers and navi- jators is there any mention of buffalo a salt coast. These animals were ound in the interior only, on the great plains, high and dry, and when they are changed to^such a coast climate as ours hey die, in protest against turning a a, public park into a cow yard. One of he four survives, in lonely occupation of a field not intended for his race. It is >robable that his hide will join those of lis companions on the park fence before he trade winds cease to blow.—San Francisco Alta. DO YOU WANT A Sub-Treasury Girl's Find. An ancient Greek coin, valued at about forty dollars, was f9und in a lot of fifty cent pieces that arrived at the sub-treasury recently. The handsome young lady who found the rarity was allowed to reep it by substituting a fifty cent piece out of her own pocket. This is perfectly .egitimate, as Uncle Sam has no time and no desire to make a collection of rare corns. All he wants is a strict ac- ;ounting of every penny that is handled by the sub-treasury, and this he has always got. The coin handlers under Cap- Jain Walters come across many a r,are coin which dishonest persons attempt to leceive the sub-treasury into accepting. These rare coins are never turned back »the persons who sent them, but are ;he legitimate prey of the one who de- ;ects the profitable fraud.—Philadelphia Record. It Doesn't Pay to Bo an Inventor in Russia. An employe of the postal telegraph of- ice of St. Petersburg has invented a watch which requires winding up only once in forty-five days. He submitted lis watch to the Mechanic Technical association, who wound it and placed it in a vault for trial. It was found precisely as the inventor represented it to be. Now the man wants to get a patent on his invention, but the difficulty presents Itself ;hat he does not belong to any mechanical guild. Whether as a layman he is entitled to a patent on a mechanical invention the minister of the interior will iave to decide.—Cincinnati Commercial Gazette.
