I By F. A. MITCH EL J.
Tears ago in the little town of Fre-
Jus. France the same Krejus at
which Napoleon 1. Inuded when be es
caped from Elba located on the shore
of the Mediterranean sea. there lived
In adjoining places a veritable Paul
and Virginia. The young mun. Edouard
Le Fevre, at eighteen was rather of
the northern than the southern type,
having a profusion of light curly hair
and blue eyes. Heleue Doucicaiflt
was at seventeen a tall, slender girl
with hair and eyes contrasting with
those of her lover. Both were strik
ingly handsome, and when together
the difference In type rendered them
Then, too, they delighted to climb to
the heights behind their homes, where
they could look down upon the long
tortuo-.is line of foam extending north
ward and southward, fringing the sea
a deep blue, a pale green or liquid sil
ver. Their companionship grew into
love without their being conscious of
the transition. Loving was like breath
ing, and, not having been sensible of
Its beginning, they took no thought
of Its ending.
When the break came It was a great
'hock to both. Edouard was sent to
1-t.rts to complete his education and
study a profession. For some time be
fore his departure there was scarcely
an hour that the two lovers were not
together. It is usually the man who
encourages the woman, but In this
case It was the woman who encourag
ed the man. though of the two It is
probable she suffered the more. She
held up before him pictures of his re
turn at vacation time and finally, after
he bad acquired bis profession, their
"I AM THB SPOTTED DEATH)" BBS BAID.
home together In Marseilles or some of
the larger places on the French Medi
terranean coast But Edouard seemed
to have a foreboding that these pic
tures would never be realized.
The lovers counted the days between
vacations, and as one vacation after
another brought a realization of He
Iene's prediction Edouard's forebod
ings seemed likely to have been merely
the result of some physical depression.
Be completed his academic studies,
then began a course to fit htm for the
law. A brilliant scholar and promt
nent In other respects, he was marked
by his fellow students one day to take
an active part in the political doings
One evening when young L Fevre
was dining with some of his associates
In a cafe a man entered and sat at a
table near them. As soon as he ap
peared the conversation among the stu
dents was hushed, while they cast
covert glances at the newcomer.
"Who la he?" asked- Edouard.
"The spotted deattfl" whispered one
of the party,
"Why la he called thatr
"The name Is given him from the
Asiatic plague, which occasionally finds
Its way Into Europe and kills every
person it attacks. He has fought
many duels and has never failed to
kill his man."
"Does he seek quarrels 7"
"Yes; he delights In them. Don't
talk so loud. If be should hear you
speak ill of him be would call you put
and kill you."
"Why has no one undertaken to put
him out of the way? He should be
shot down like a dog."
The spotted death's eye flashed. Be
bad overheard Le Fevre's words. He
had ordered a bottle of wine and had
poured out a glass." Rising with it In
bis hand, he advanced a few steps to
ward Edouard and threw its contents
In his face.
Every member of the party of stu
dents was horror stricken. Le Fevre
saw the positiru) In which he was
placed and, though he. regretted his
rashness, did what was expected of
him. He asked one of hjs friends to
go to the man who had Insulted him
and secure his address, then, without
fr '. i...o
waiting for a reply, arose with the
others and left the cafe.
In Le Fevre's rooms a consultation
of his friends was held to determine
what was to be done. Considering the
sentiment prevalent at that time,, it
was determined that if Edouard did
not meet the spotted death ho might
as well give up his career so far as his
native country was concerned, and
there was then no civilized land where
a man was excused from resenting an
insult Edouard resigned himself to
his fate. He sent a challenge, and the
meeting was arranged for the follow
ing morning at sunrise.
That night Edouard wrote a letter
to Helena couched In the terms of one
who expected to die within a few
hours. He had no skill at any weapon
and knew he was to be murdered. The
main trouble that occupied his mind
was the suffering his murder would
occasion her. He begged her to do all
In her power to forget him.
As was to have been expected, the
spotted tleath the next morning made
short work of his antagonist, running
him through the heart with ease. The
student expired Immediately. Bis
comrades regretted the want of can.
Uon that led to his death, and In a
short time he was forgotten.
One night at a masked ball a figure
entered the hall on whose mask was
painted the spotted death. Evidently
an artist had designed the mask, for
nothing could be more horrible,- repre
senting, as It did, a man dying with
the dreaded Asiatic disease. The spots
had been so artistically painted as to
appear those of the veritable Infliction.
Every one shrank from the loath
some looking masker, who gazed about
the room till his eye fell on a man
dressed as a 'Spanish grandee, then
walked across the floor, every one
withdrawing before him with a shud.

man, he stood very close to him and

gressor, "we two I and this man are
twin brothers. We are both the spot

person, his are In bis name."
At receiving the Insult the Spaniard
recoiled for a moment then, recover
ing himself, tore off his mask and re
vealed the features of the duelist who
had killed Edouard Le Fevre.
Unmask as I have done and let me
know who you are," he said to the
man who had spat upon him.
"That is unnecessary. I am the spot
ted death, the person of your twelve
victims. The thirteenth is about to
"And be Is?"
"Yourself." -' -
Whether It waa the confident tone In
which the word was spoken or the liv
id agony ' expressed in the mask the
duelist could not repress a slight start
"Enough of this!" he said. "Your
coming here to disturb these festivi
ties shall be punished. I will send a
friend to any address you name."
'Pardon me; but lest the Insult I
have given you should not be sufficient,
I will duplicate It"
Bendlno- forward onick as licrhtnlnr
the speaker struck the duelist on ihe
cheek with the palm of bis hand. A
drop of blood followed the blow. The
duelist did not notice It at once, but
in a moment putting up his bona,ebe
wiped it away.
"Your address I" he cried, irritated at
this second Insult
"You shall have It in time. Messieurs
and mesdames, pardon for interrupt
ing your festivities. On with the
dance! It is now 10 o'clock. By mid
night or within an hour later my twin
brother shall have my address. I de

The duelist with difficulty maintained
At midnight the revelers unmasked.
The duelist who after the altercation
had resumed his face covering, on
taking It off a second time was seen
to be Buffering. He attempted to leave
the hall, but staggered, and before
reaching the floor fell It was no

While she spoke the spots on the
man's face grew stronger and its ex
pression like the mask she had worn.
There was something startling in his
own expression at seeing the change
when sbe unmasked from the hideous
apparition to the features of a deli
cate woman who hung over blin like

If your back is straight and upright
you are correspondingly straight in
your conduct You will hold your
head up, fdT you are not afraid to look
the whole world in the face.
Even when you're sitting you keep
your back straight There is an air
of real strength about you both phys
ical and mental. In short, you have
plenty of backbone. You are deter
mined, energetic and to be relied upon.
If your back Is stooping and rounded
you are a creature as weak as you
look you are prone to lolling about
and too lazy or too feeble to take a
front rank in the battle of life. The
tramp is' an excellent example.
If you are' a criminal your back la
stooped or round, but the scholarly
stoop of the bookworm must not be
confounded with the foregoing.
If you are mean and covetous your
back is narrow and rounded and your
shoulders are high. You are sly very
sly. You generally have the appear
ance of drawing yourself up Into as
small a compass as possible. You are
always yourself, so to speak, and peo
ple should give you the cold shoulder.
Are you too - straight backed that
is, do you bold your bead so high that
there is a preposterous fall in the
small of your back? Then yon are so
puffed np with self esteem that yon
