It was a hitter cold day; .the
streets of New York were alive with
a dense mass of crowding humani
ty, over-coated, muffled and veiled,
as became thoso who joyousl y brav
ed the penetrating wind and sharp
atmosphere, in tho merry-making
and the birth of the New Year.
Notwithstanding the frosty
weather, the Empire City was nev
er in gayer mood, and up and down
and across the thronged thorough
fares, stylish turnouts dashed swift
ly by to the twinkling music of sil
ver-tongued hells and low, liappv
laughter speeding away to the open
roads and snow-clad country, ly
ing white and still beyond the hur
ry and turmoil of the great city.
Though so cold without, it was
warm enough in the elegant room
where we were sitting—my cousin
Althea, her half-sister, Sirs. Irene
Chester, and 1. My cousin Althea
was not young—past thirty, in fact;
hut she was the most beautiful wo
man 1 ever saw, and as she sat in
tho large crimson damask chair by
the window, dreamily looking out
at the hurrying passers-by,
thought I had never seen any one
so charmingly mul irresistibly love
ly. Her lustrous black eyes, clear
olive complexion and glossy wealth
of purple-black hair were so perfect
ly perfect that one did not know
which to admire the most, and her
voice and smile were as sweet and
winning as her form was graceful
and her face matchlessly beautiful.
Howard Tremaine loved her as
few men love their wives; and Al
thea, as everybody knew, idolized
her handsome husband, and yet
somewhere there was a hidden sor
row, the nature of which I could
not for my life divine. I had seen
its shadow more than once, hut the
substance kept itself well out of
view, and, hut for the sad, anxious,
restless look that often of late crept
into Althea’s great, soulful eyes,
I’d not have thought sorrow could
exist in her luxurious home, much
less fix itself permanently there.
We were going to the opera in
the evening. Mr. Chester was to at
tend us in the absence of Howard,
who had gone away two or three
hours before with three or four
friends, who had, very much to his
wife’s regret, called for him to ac
company them on a liitle half-hour
or so sleigh-ride out on the Btcom-
As the short winter afternoon
wore on, Althea grew every mo

There was much too heavy a
