Arya dismounted, took out the map, unrolled it. The rain pattered against the sheepskin and ran off in rivulets. “We’re someplace here, I think,” she said, pointing, as the boys peered over her shoulders. “But,” said Hot Pie, “that’s hardly any ways at all.

Every one (including Mr. Sillerton Jackson) was agreed that old Catherine --a gift which, in the eyes of New York, justified every success, and excused a certain number of failings. Unkind people said that, like her Imperial namesake, she had won her way to success by strength of will and hardness of heart, and a kind of haughty effrontery that was somehow justified by the extreme decency and dignity of her private life. Mr. Manson Mingott had died when she was only twenty-eight, and had "tied up" the money with an additional caution born of the general distrust of the Spicers; but his bold young widow went her way fearlessly, mingled freely in foreign society, married her daughters in heaven knew what corrupt and fashionable circles, hobnobbed with Dukes and Ambassadors, associated familiarly with a police shield

On a January, Christine Nilsson was singing in Faust at the Academy of Music in New York. Though there was already talk of the erection, in remote metropolitan distances "above the Forties," of a new Opera House which should compete in costliness and splendour with those of the great European capitals, the world of fashion was still content to reassemble every winter in the shabby red and gold boxes of the sociable old Academy. Conservatives cherished it for being small and inconvenient, and thus keeping out the "new people" whom New York was beginning to dread and yet be drawn to; and the sentimental clung to it for its historic associations, and the musical for its excellent acoustics, always so problematic a quality in halls built for the hearing of music.

Sayers, however, had not escaped scot-free. In , Heenan had broken one of the bones ofSayers' right arm. Still the fight went on. It was now abrutal scene. The blind man could not defend himself fromthe other's terrible punishment. His whole face was soswollen and distorted, that not a feature was recognisable. But he evidently had his design. Each time Sayers struck himand ducked, Heenan made a swoop with his long arms, and atlast he caught his enemy. With gigantic force he got Sayers' head down, and heedless of his captive's pounding, backedstep by step to the ring. When there, he forced Sayers' neckon to the rope, and, with all his weight, leant upon theEnglishman's shoulders. In a few moments the face of thestrangled man was black, his tongue was forced out of hismouth, and his eyes from their sockets. His arms fellpowerless, and in a second or two more he would have been acorpse. With a wild yell the crowd rushed to the rescue. Warning cries of 'The police! The police!' mingled
