fair of flower and bitter of fruit.-Juliana Horatia Ewing. To me the idea of slaving for a life-time in order to die rich is a pitiful sort of insanity. Thats the Italian in me, I suppose. I would think it wiser to drink-drink deep and long and gloriously-and die of it-die in a ditch if necessary!

Then I would have lived some sort of life, anyway, and enjoyed it after my fashion. But Im not going to live or die that way. Im going to take everything in life thats worth having, and Im going to enjoy-and enjoy-and enjoy! The devil, himself, cant cheat me of it.

Ive long arrears of happiness to make up and by God--Ill make them! The speaker broke off, coughing horribly- a gleam of intense rage shone in his great, wild eyes and his thin nostrils quivered, furiously. Poor slight earth-worm! caught in the whirlwind of Destiny and tossed hither and thither! compelled to falsify his weak boasts even as he uttered them! The man who sat opposite, smoking and lounging in the dim light of the studio, withdrew his gaze with an effort from his visitors frail form and frenzied face- there seemed something indecent in gazing thus openly at the contortions of a naked soul.
