The Hump o:j
It Was n Great Blight, but
Served a Purpose
By F. A. MITCHEL
There were on living In Paris two
friend. Jules Kubndoux ntid I'leriv
Marier. It so linppened that it son
wns born to Kuhadoux and n daughter
to Mnrier on the 8:ime dny. Tho t wo
got together (it Ittibadoux's house to
celebrate the event und, after tho con
sumption of severnl bottles of wine,
mnde n betrothal agreement IVtwpcn
the two children lying In their era
dies uncouselous of the pledges ninth
Marier In time went to live at Mar
sellles, and the two friends became
separated. When his daughter, Clo
chette, reached her eighteenth birth
day her father wrote to Itubadou:
that she had come to a innrriageabl"
ago, at the same time reminding hltii
of the agreement whereby nuo should
marry his son, Antolne.
In due time a letter came from M.
Rulmdoux stating that he had good
cause to remember their agreement.
THEY WEIIB FOLLOWED BY A CBOWD, SOMK
since for years he and his wife hud
been spending time and money to
make their boy presentable, so that
any young woman would be willing to
marry him. A large protrusion had
grown on the end of his nose, and
they had not found a surgeon who
would undertake Its removal.
M. Mnrier was a bit staggered by
this letter, but his heart was set on
carrying out the agreement, and he
considered himself bound to do so.
This sense of honor did not regard
the Infliction of . a disfigured husband
upon his daughter. He was the dis
poser of her hand, and it did not oc
cur to him that her likes or dislikes
had anything to do with the matter.
So he wrote his friend to that effect.
Now. Si. Marier was Ignorant of the
fact that half a dozen years before
Clochette had formed a childish at
tachment for "a sc-hoolmate Joseph
Trouvere. The children kept their af
fair to themselves, and when Joseph,
having finished his education, went on
a voynte with his father, who was u
sea captain, to be absent a couple of
years, the young lovers agreed that
they would marry each other despite
any plans their parents might form for
tliom in Hip cunt rnrv. .Iiispnh was a
Une young fellow, two years Ci-liette's
senior, and had decided on his return
to Mar-tollies to choose the prpfesslon
of u notary, or, as we call It. a lawyer.
When Marier told his daughter that
the contract he had made for her
the day she was born was about to be
consummated she listened to him with
downcast eyes. The information he
gave ber that she wns to marry a man
with n lump on the end of his nose
did not draw forth from her any pro
test. The reason for this was that If
she couldn't marry Joe Trouvere It
made no difference to her whether she
married a handsome man or a scare
crow. Her father, mistaking her 1110
tlves, wns much relieved, and when
he dismissed her he kissed her aflVe-
tlonntely in token of his appreciation
of her obedience.
After the passage of a number of
notes between the parents of the in
tended bride and groom. In which
Marier expressed himself highly hon
ored and Itubiidniix wrote admiringly
of that high sense of honor which had
led his very dear friend to accept an al
liance, the groom being blighted by a
physical deformity, the preliminaries
were arranged. Antolne, who was a
recluse, partly on account of the ex-
creseuee he was obliged to wear, bad
a strong repulsion to mar. Inge with
any oue. All he asked was to be per
mitted to spend his time with books.
As an obedient sou. he yielded to bis
father in the matter, but unwillingly.
(t bad bvu arranged that be was to
go down to ' Marseilles during the
month of March, when the summer
had opened on the Mediterranean, to
make tho acquaintance of his bride.
The wedding day was to be set inter.
M. Marier, aware that he might be
blamed for forcing on his daughter a
bridegroom with a hump on Ills nose,
was anxious not to appear to be using
his parental authority.
Clochette made no objection to any
thing she knew to be her father's will.
There was no doubt In her mind that
he would require her to marry the
husband he had provided for her, and
It would avail nothing to protest All
French girls were required to marry
In this way. Why should she be an
One dny when M. Marier wns read
ing his paper there was a knock at
the outside door, and In a few mo
ments a young man with an enormous
red hump on his nose appeared In his
study. He knew at once that the
comer must be Antolne Rubadoux.
Rut so polite are the French In such
matters that, rising and bowing cere
moniously, he asked to whom he wns
Indebted for the honor of the visit
"I come," said the young man, "as
a suitor for your daughter's hand."
"Antolne Rubadoux, I embrace you!"
Taking care to avoid the red hump,
from which sprang three stiff red
hairs, M. Marier embraced his son-in-law
to be, then expressed surprise that
he had come earlier than had been
arranged. Antoino declared thnt he
had heard accounts of Mile. Marier so
ravishing thnt he could not vn!t for
the appointed time. In coming ho had
disobeyed the orders of his father.
who did not know that he had done
so. He begged that monsieur would
not betray him.
Marier, who was delighted with
everything concerning his intended
son-in-law except his flaming nose,
which resembled the miniature head
of a red Indian with a scalplock stick
ing straight up, directed a servant to
call madamoiselle and ushered An
tolne Into the drawing room. When
Clochette entered her father said cer
emoniously: 'Clochette, I have the honor to pre
sent to you M. Antolne Rubadoux, the
son of my old friend. Jules Rubadoux
The girl was very pale. Toung Ru
badoux bowed so low thnt at first she
did not see his nose, but when she did
her eyes were fastened upon it In
what seemed to her father a terrible
fascination. She made an effort for
self control, then gave way. bursting
Into a fit of laughter.
"Clochette!" cried her father In a

ther thinking her emotions to have
brought on hysterics ordered her to
her room, sending a mnld to attend her.
"Monsieur." said Antoino ruefully.
"the marriage must be given up."
"Not at all. Leave It to mo. I will
see that my daughter apologizes for
her conduct All will be well In time."
"I cannot force myself blighted as
I am upon so lovely a girl."
"Do you menu that you will Insult
me by declining to complete the con
tract made by your father?"
"By no means, but I cannot mnrry a
girl who hns laughed at me."
At this Juncture Clochette came bnck
Into the drawing room, and with a per
fectly straight face she had controlled

burst Into another fit of laughter.
Rubadoux turned away. Clochette re
pressed her hysterics and began again:

"Name It!" cried the father, whose
anger disappeared as suddenly as it
had been nroused by his daughter's ac
tion. "My father is liable to learn of my
departure at any moment and may be

"Good!" cried Marier. "We will pro-
ceed to the otHce of the mayor at
once; then to the church."
Now. the good people of Marseilles
had noted the advent of the stranger
with the tlaming nose and hn 1 follow
ed him. When the wedding party
emerged from the house It was fol
lowed by a crowd, some laughing nt
the bridegroom's nose, some making
facetious remarks, while those through
whom this variegated procession pass
ed pitied the poor bride and muttered
maledictions on her father's head.
When the ceremony in the church
wns completed the groom turned and
looked at those present He was re
ceived with laughter and derision.
"Those laugh best who laugh last,"
he said, and, putting his baud to the
bump on his nose, he pulled It off and
tossed it among them.
A bum of astonishment greeted the
action. Then some one shouted:
"Why, It's Joe Trouvere!"
And so it was. Joseph bad returned
from his cruise and, hearing of the sit
uation of the girl he loved, provided
himself with a wax nose with three
I bristling hairs in it and palmed him-
self off as Antolne Rubadoux before
j that youth's arrival.
1 The astonishment of M. Murler. who
had been tricked Into hurrying bis
; daughter Into a marriage before the ar
' rival of the man he bad provided for
ber was appalling. Too late be saw
through Clochette's laughter on seeing
the groom. She had recognized him at
