them. . ,
Twenty-five lyears ago, ih
Lyons,, they began, thjeir careen.
Lyons, on the Rhone, in.la "belle
France. Louis Was young, h
was beautiful. TfieV" mustaches,
were black, and glossy, and the
curl oh, the.tir.rK Ifwasa thing
to make one turji one's head for
another lo'dk. - . .
Soit fellout.wjth the charming
Mile.1 Catherine-Macaudieje. 'She
beheld the mustaches, " she ex
claimed in her heart,ryhow mag

observed her, the 'mischief was
They were married!, and hap?
pily they lived in jgiiaiht old
Lyons HhisLouis and Catherine
But there, came the-call' of Parish
Paris the gay, and; rich, and ftag
nificent, where . people spend
money -as though it were the peb
bles of the roadway. v
So -they went to Paris, and
opened a little cafe. Marie Ma
caudiere, sister of Catherine,
they took as waitress. For a
while all was well.
Then the fatal mustaches!
Marie fell in love with" them. And
mustaches they have a weak
ness, you know, for pretty wo
men. Marie was most pretty,
and she and Louis eloped.
To London they went. Cath
erine Went after them. For a long
time she sought in yain. Then a
clew the. mustaches'! A hand
some man, with a charming wife,
had, had a small cafe, in such-and-such
a place. No, his mustaches
di'd not curl. They were after the
British fashion they drooped
and the ends swept his shoulders.
But they were gone. To -Ger-
many, she was told.
In Berlin, she sought, and after
a long, long time she heard again
of those unmistakable mustaches.
A little gray they were now, and
turned-up, as the Kaiser set the
iashion. Himmel! The points
.touched the eyelashes of mein-
'herr, Catherine 'was told. But
she was too Jate. Louis and
Marie had gone to America
"Mme; Plantier came to New
Yoflc Years she searched for
Iquis and the mustaches. The
other day she found them. Alasf
.their beauty is gone. They are
very gray for it is 23 years since
Louis and'Marie ran away from
Paris and. they are cropped
across, af ter the odious American
manner. But the same mustaches, "
and the same Louis.
So now Marie is co-respondent
in her sister's suit for divorce, atjd
Louis is in prison, for not paying
promptly certain temporary ali
mony. Sic transit gloria mustaches !?
