Ned was a sportsman, tic bad bunt-

game, and trarel had made him cos

ite sport was yachting. One summer,
as soon as the season opened, be 'put
bis yacht 1a commission and made up
a party of men and women for a cruise.
Now, It so happened that when tbe
list of those who had accepted was
complete nearly alt tbe guests turned
oat to be of tbe muddy branch of
' the social stream. In other words.
they were of the commercial aristoc
racy. If Ned had bad a wife to "blue

was democratic snd used to associate.
' especially when hunting or traveling.

a costume not much better than that
of a cowpancber. A man is always
at a disadvantage aa a foreigner, and
Carl Bchmitt would bare received tbe
ceJd shoulder from Van Amsterdam's
guests on this account if on no other.
Besides, so fresh an importation waa
he that he could speak no great
amount of English. Ned lent blm a

The daya passed, during which tbe

returned to New York. It waa agreed
that the trip bad been an enjoyable
one. though tbe unanimity of tbe par

by the presence of at least one person
who had no place In it In parting

be had made a mistake In trying to
tntrodnc a foreign element among
tbem. but that be hoped to make
amends very soon. lie wished tbem
an to dine with bim in New York, and
they might assure themselves that
there would be no one reseutrtbey

The dinner came off at Van Amster

tbe yachting party was present except
Miss -TeoBrock..JIer cousin Invited

were assembled and went into the din

tbe chair next the host on his right
was vacant Several courses had been
served, and tbe guest for whom tbe
chair was intended did not appear.
"Wuo'e to be on your right?" aaked

Tbe company looked at one another
with congratulatory glances that they
were to be honored at meetlug so dis
tinguished a enton. Tbe conversation
turned upon the count, and Ned told
them something about blm. There was
royal blood in bis veins, be being a
connection of the empress. He was
also one of tbe richest men in Ger

excitement, and wbeu tbe women were

Van Amsterdam directed a butler to
