Tht» ps-ople who drop into hit otndio
and eTHiuine the varions objects of art
and virtu which a long life and a con-
siderable success in my profession hare
enabled me to collect together would no
donbt be very much surprised to h >ar
thatof all my treasures there is none
so dear to me as the bronze medallion
that lies enshrined within a crystal case
on my mantelpiece. Many of my visit-
ors have glanced at it and turned away
to examine a rare bit ot carving or an
almost priceless example of some for-
gotten art. To them the bronze medal-
lion suggested nothing. Possibly they
thought if they gave the matter any
thought at all —that it was some medal
won in niv student days and therefore
treasured with care. That it represent-
ed a whole life history and had the
power to revive many strange memories
they had 110 idea. Some people per-
haps, seeing it in a place of honor among
my knicknacks. may have fancied that
it was something for which I had the
same superstitions reverence that other
men give to a horseshoe. Tlie bronze
medallion, however. 1* neither a fetit a
n>>r a memento ot an early artistic suc-
cess. It is simply an insignificant ob-
ject. worth perhaj s a few shillings,
which has played no small part 111 my
life and on one occasion saved me from
midden and violent d> atli. Thirty y« an
ago. when 1 was a young man of 'Jiiand
had fame and fortune still eluding me,
I was attach* d to the artistic staff of
The Illustrated Weekly, a journal which
was ju>t then beginning a career of
jreat success. Black and white work
was not then what it is now. but poo- \
pie thought highly of the illustrations :
we were able to give them for sixpen-ee, j
and there was 110 lack of encouragement
for proprietors or artists. My own spe-
cial forte was animal life, as it always
has been. From thetini" when I could
first hold n pencil I had spent my 11 a * > •
piest moments in drawing horse-. I >
me a h>r-e was a creature of mfinit"
artistic po—ibilitics. Iliad dr.iwu him
fettling in the ring nf a circus ami gal-
loping at oxpre-s spet d ov' r u race
course, and it matt' r< .1 little to me
whether he was a high bn d or a shaggy
Shetland potiy. 1 had alrenly be;:uii
to paint him 111 oil-, and my tir-t pic
tnre. "Voting lb it>1 s at l'iay, " was >n-
aidered worthy ot a place 111 the acad-
emy. It was this success in depicting,
horses that b d the < < 111• r of The Illus-
trated Weekly to suggest that 1 sin uld
g 1 down t< D< ncaster and make a sketi li
of the St. Leg* r of that year. Tln ie
was some famous horse running—I tor-
get his name tor the moment— and the
public interest in the race was greater

Illustration to the scene, and I trav-
eled to Doiicaster a day < r two b« fore the
e\ ent and began my work by getting
an accurate idea of tb*' racecourse and
selecting a favorable standpoint from
whit h ta ti en.- 111 > -ket< h.
The day of the great race came, and
duru g the morning I was busily occu-
pied in interviewing the various hor->§
engaged anil 111 tilling my sketchbook
with bits that seemed likely to b • use-
ful. When the afternoon came round
and the racing began. 1 made my war
to a certain part of the course which
had seemed to me Very Well Pnittd
to my purpose-, and tin re I took
my stand. There were two races to b»
run before the St. l.eger, and whil*
th®se were being got through and dur-
ing the intervals between tlielll I occu-
pied inyselt in wat< hing the doings of
the crowd which tilled the upper part
of the town moor. There must have be. n
•goo.niio people ].resent 011 the stand*
and 111 the rings and 011 the moor, and
from them tame a perfect hable of
Bound, above which tie- stentorian voices
of the bookmakers bb ndt tl with tlm
shrill cries of catchpenny adventurers
of all sorts. Hero two or three mem-
bers ut' the three card trick fraternity
were endeavoring to gull a group of
round faced rustics: there a similar gang
were shouting the praise s ot a sort of
loulette table; yonder a betting man
had screamed himself hoarse and was
reduced to shaking the money in his
bag as a means of attracting attention.
Beyond the shouting, swaying, bu-tling
crowd stretched a long line ot vehicles
of all descriptions, from the lordly look-
ing coach to the farmer's light cart,
and on these men and women were
eating and drinking and discussing
the prospects of the favorite fi r the
great race. Across the course rose the
long line of stands, thickly packed with
fashionable racegoers, and these made
a dark background to the picture I had
in my mind s eye.
I was noticing all these things and tak-
1 ing a sly sketch now and then of some
face or figure that attracted uiv atten-
tion. when 1 caught sight of a little; tren-
tn man. evidently a t-rencliman, who
seemed very much out of place among
! the rough crowd. He was veiy neatly
' dressed from top to toe, but as he passed
me I noticed that bis black frock coat
| v. as somewhat shiny at the shoulders
and that his carefully brushed hat had
I certainly seen better davs He went in
and out among the crowd, staring at
the bookmaki rs and glancing curiouslv
j at the three card fraternity. I thoiignt
there was something wisttul about his
j eyes as lie looked at the gold which
| the gentry di-pla\ed s e > lavishly,
j l'tesently 1 lost sight of him in the
ciowd, but about 10 minutes before the
St. Leger was to be run I saw him
I again. He was engaged 111 c.mtide-litlal
ceeiive rsatieiii with an linli vnbial whom
I sat down at onc e a- a be tting man s
tout and against whose wile s and blanel-
ishments 1 shouM have likeel to warn
the evidently innocent loreigner. Pre s-
ently. however, there was a great cry
of riiev re off' ami I had to turn lu v
attention te> the race .
However great the excitement and
heiwevcr long it may have existed prior
to the eve nt which rouses it, it take s
but a few very brief moments to allay
it forever. Within four minutes of
the cry or ''Thi \ r th».

I strolled round the- 1 rmvil an
myself '.•_%• watching the face s ot t h<'
people* vim had lost th-ir money ami
the joyful manifestations of tluesei who
had l>et succe3sfully. I passe d beyond
the line of carriages unci caits and
walked ac ross the moor to the slight
hill at the' bottom cif the course, from
where the re 1- an e xcellent \ lew of
the crowds gathered before the stands.
There were very few people about the
hill or the furze bushes which cover it.
and things w»re epiiet there after the
roar and bustle of the crowd. I turneel
awav to the left intending to fo into
the highroad" and walk back to the
town, but I suddenly paused and hesi-
tated. for there, close before me, was
the little French gentleman, evidently
In distre ss. He 8at on the ground behind
one of the furze bushes, with his hands
hanging helplessly over hia drawn tip
knees and his head drooping forward
tn abject fashion. It was evident that
he had fallen among thieves. I went
np to him and spoke, feeling that his
distress warranted me in doing so.
'' I am afraid you are in trouble, sir. "
He lifted his face from his hands and
looked up. "All, m'sieur!"' Ho spread
his little' fat hands abroad with a ges-
ture that was half pathetic, half com-
ical. "Helas! I have been rob—swin-
dled— 1 have lose all my money."
"Do you mean that some one has
pit keel your pocket, " I asked. "If so,
you should inform the police."
"Ah, but it is in t zat zey have peek
