	  A Split between Nast & Eytinge.
therefore &c., &c.     Next day, at the office of the
 Illustrated News,  Sol (doubtless pulling his mous-
tache and scowling) produced another letter from
Maggie.   I shall not take it!  said Tommy (ac-
curately informed of the contents of his wife s note;
and having, in addition, devoted himself to inquiries
about Mrs. Sol s character, with odorous results):
 the letter did not require any answer!       Sol,
indignant, despatches his wife s reply by a boy,
to Nast s residence.    Tommy immediately sends off
another, with instructions to Sally not to receive
any letter during that day.         But either Sol s
messenger did outrun that of Tommy, or Sally s
curiosity induced disregard of marital behests;
she got the letter and read it.           Only one sentence
has reached us:      I was amused,  wrote Mrs. Mag-
gie Eytinge,  at your reason for &c., &c., considering
the character of those with whom you have been
intimately associated with during the last year
or two!         Since then a coolness has occurred
between Nast and Eytinge.       Poor Sol! what fierce
nocturnal reminders he must be subject to!         What
a Nemisis this Allie Vernon business has involved
more than one in!       Jim Parton told Haney
this: I can imagine how the latter felt at the
prospect of Allie Vernon s introduction to Sally!
