GEO. W. RICH,
With Regard to
the Latest Gowns
Dress was never so flnoan art as it is now,
and yetneer was there a time that a woman
had to spend so littlo time and thought on her
attire, for everything seems to bo planned out
for her and she finds that more caro and bet
ter tasto than ever have boon put into tho
fashions thi9 season, and as a result tho styles
are remarkably pretty.
Quito in contrast to tho prosaic character of
the winter goods, this is ROing to bo a fancy
season, and all the colors are light, even in
the heavier wools that are made up for tho
earliest Sprine wear.
New shades of brown will vie with thoso in
green for tho lead in popularity and the light
shades in all colors will prevail. Mixed suit
ings are the correct thing for street gowns, as
are also the handsomo covert cloths that
como in every conceivable shade of tan and
gray. There are corded suitings in tan, green,
and blue, with hair stripes of old rose, pink,
and blue. There are a nriety of silk and
wool goods and even a greater number of
crcpons and craped stuffs, which will have
great vogue the coming season?.
As to the gown it&cU, after the material is
bought, tho skirt shows a docided return to
the kilt, box plaited and accordion effects,
while draped tunics are also fashionable.
The only pronounced feature of tho season
seem to be tho ocrskirt and draperies, but
overskirts were worn a little lust season.
The most acceptable of the overukirts is the
model with a long overskirt, raised slightly
on one side to show just a bit of the contrast
Sleeves remain about tho same, ample and
drooping, while some of tho models show
sleeves very tight as far as the elbow.
Bodices are trimmed more thanecr with
round berthas, fichus, and revers of samo
color as the gown or of a contrasting color.
Many of the cloth waists are trimmed on tho
epaulets and sleeves with narrow bands of
black velvet ribbon. Black watered silk will
bo used for trimming tho silk and woolen
fabrics. Lace is used lavishly and the deep
i ory tone is brighter than tho cream and ecru
and more becoming to the ordinary run of
complexions. 'Wide, soft sashes are a pretty
fancy for tho slender woman. The ends are
tied in a long, drooping loop, falling low
down on the skirt.
Perpendicular trimmings, such as cord and
bias bands, are placed on many of the new
skirts. Buttons are used a great deal for
trimming. Velvet ribbon trimmings are in
vogue again and appear on scores of the new
models in flat bands and tho fancy silk;
blouses are simply covered with rows of it.
Skirt Bouncings of lace are headed with bands
of jet, plaited llse. A velvet ribbon on the
edge of the gown is cut in deep Vandyke
points, which project over a frill of lace. The
open guipure embroideries are leading styles
for general trimming in bands, borders and
edgings. Braids are all good in black for
Beady-made suits on the tailor-made order
have taken the place of last year's Eaton suit.
The skirts are quite plain, while the coats are
double-breasted and fit tightly to the figure,
but they arcflnished so they can be worn
open on very warm day, in which case they
display the fancy waistcoats which are so
much the fashion this ;Spring. These waist
coats are of black moire, satin, and colored
silks, but will bo replaced later on by those of
duck and pique.
Shirts waists will bo worn v cry much this
Bummer with these suits.
A street gown of blue homespun has a circular-shaped
skirt, which is slightly lifted on
one side and reveals a petticoat of brown
trimmed with black military braid. Tho jacket
is ono of the frock coat affairs, and is cut away
to show a vest of blue braided cloth; tho
sleeves consist of double puffs with a finish of

deputy, when tho valet had delivered his

"monsieur is mistaken. It is a very charm
"Well, charming or not," said Mr. Yer

Holding up tho card to the light tho valet

"Ah, well," said Mr. Yemeni!, wearily, "I
suppose she must come in. One must look
after one's popularity, no matter how ill ono
may be. You can show her in."
The above conversation took place In a
dimly lighted room in an apartment on tho
fourth floor of a house on the Qua! Voltaire
in Paris, the bachelor apartment of Monsieur
Hector Vcrneull. the deputy.
Hector Yerneuil who w as a man of about
40 years of ap, who, after a bohcniian and
disrcputablo youth, had passed from the ob
scurity of tho provincial newspaper office
into tho glamour of the Palais BourDon. Ho
. owed his election far less to his own merits
or talents than to chanco. It will bo remem
ber that in 1BS3. when n final and unsuccess
ful onslaught was mado upon tho Trench
constitution as at present established, tho so
called Revisionist party stood in desperate
need of candidates to contest tho various con
stituencies that any man who might be con
sidered to have any chance of success was
not only welcomed as such, but financially
supported jronj Headquarters. It was as a Be-

was better known by his pseudonym of
"Jiichard Ycntnor," had been elected, and as
ajtevisionisthehadsat for some months at
tho extreme left of tho Chamber of Dep
uties. It was not until it had become apparent to
all the world that the realization of tho once
brilliant hopes of the Ileiisiontst party was an
utter impossibility, that Yerneuil moved to
the Bight. In othor words, being a man of
business, nnd being troubled with neither
scruples nor sentimentality, he "ratted" as
Boon as it was evident that there was nothing
whatever to be gained by loyalty to his party,
nnd that on the other hand the government
would sooner or later make it worth his while
to becomo their supporter. He wa3 greatly
criticised for his action, nnd was callod many
hard names in the organs which remained
truo to the fallen causo; but having during his
Journalistic career acquired a certain amount
of skill with tho rapier he had always been

Just a few days before tho call of the
American lady interviewer he had had an
encounter with a former colleague, who had
assaulted him amid tho frantic applause of
the Extreme Left as he came down the steps
of the tribune, on which he had been de
nouncing in no measured terms "tho
intngue3 of those who have no desrer wish
than to impede the onward march of the
great republic." This time tho encounter
had not como off to his advantage. He had
received from his opponent, to use tho lan
guago of the proces-verbal, "a thrust inter
secting tho left angle of tho right eye," which
nearly blinded him. Inflammation of both
eyes had set in, and at ono time it was feared
by tho doctor and his valet do chatnbro that
tho Deputy Vcrneuil would never bo able to
look upon tho festivities of the Moulin
Bougo again. As it was, ho was condemned
to remain, with both eves bandaged, in a
darkened room. It was horribly dull, for no
body came near him. His treachery was of
too recent date to have been forgotten, even
by thoso in whose favor it had been accom
plished, and of personal friends Horace Vcr
neuil had very few.
Ho was therefore rather pleased than
otherwise at tho visit which Jules had an
nounced to him. In the first place a chat
with a pretty woman, ov en if he could not see
her face and form, would be a pleasant chnngo
from tho gloomy monotony of his present life,
and, secondly, vain and ambitious as he was,
it pleased him to hear that his personality
was of Interest to the public of America. It
was therefore from mero affectation that ho
had pretended to hesitate when Miss Clith
eroo's card had been brought in.
"This is the lady that has come to see Mon
sieur lo Deputie," said Jules, returning and
ushering in tho visitor. The deputy rose
from bis chair and bowed in the direction of

saftest tones, "I am an invalid."
Jules was right Miss Clitheroe was cer

SENATOR VANCE'S FUNERAL
Impressive Obsequies Over the Remains"
at the Capitol Yesterday.
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND THERE
Cabinet, Diplomatic Corps, and Members of
ths Home Alio Attend the Services Is the
Senate Chamber Special Train Left for
Aiheville with the Bemains Last Night
At tho conclusion of the chaplain's invoca
tion In the Senate yesterday, Senator Ban
som, of North Carolina, arose, and in pathetic
and eloquent words announced tho death of
his colleague. He said:
Mr. President, it is my melancholy duty to an
nounco to the Senate the death of Hon. Zeb
ulon Balrd Vance, lato a Senator from North
Carolina. Though his long-continued and se
rious Illness ought to have prepared ell of us for
the oad event, still, beguiled by his own cheerful
and hopeful spirits, none of us had dreamed that
the white horses were coming so rapidly to his
Ills death shocks to the depths of our hearts.
It is a calamity, a sorrow, a deep public and per
sonal bereavement A great man has fallen in
our midst A great patriot, a great statesman,
a great speaker, a great thinker, a great actor
has passed away from our sight for this llfo.
Ho died at his post of duty, with his complete
nrmor on, with his face to tho front courageous,
uopsful, useful to the last buffering did not
break down his proud spirit, nor dim his noblo
intellect, nor snake his fearless fortitude. Full
of years, but still in the strength of his eminent
faculties, crowned with exalted honors, but still
animated with yet higher aspirations and
promise of doing good, physically wrecked and
overcome with Incurable maladies, ho stood
urmly In the line of his comrades and serenely
gathered his rotes nround blm at the last mo
ment and stepped from earth to eternity with
the dignity ot a Senator and tho faith of a
lie has been the most beloved and tho most
honored son of the great state of North Carolina.
From the everflowlng ocein, across the hills and
plains and valleys to tho majestic mountain lops,
ho was a familiar and most dear object in the
hearts and homes of all our peoplH. Standing
hy his lilcless form to-day It Is my sacr ed duty,
representing n commonwealth of nearly 2,ouo,ou0
souls, to shed upon his mortal ashc 3 tho tears
of their affection and deepest sorrow.
At this moment the throbbing hearts of thou
sands are following his sileut march to tho tomb.
As I think of the short Interval at which he fol
lows tho beloved Georgian from the folding doors
of this chamber to the last rest it looks as If two
tall oaks which stood over and shaded our
hearthstones had fallen in the early evening
nfter the storms and heat of the day had passed
over, and before the shades of night and v Inter
had fallen upon their autumnal leaves.
Colquitt and anco had done their duty to
their country and their fellow-men, and
now I can only venture in tho name of the
stricken Senate, with the gentlest sympathy, to
send to the true and devoted woman who for
months by day and night, with untiring vigilance,
has stood by him like an angel of light and lore,
our heartfelt condolence and tenderness, audio
hold up to his brave sons tho ever-living boacon
of their father's life. May our Almighty rather
in Ills supreme and Infinite goodness bestow on
them ills strength and comfort
Senator Bansom then sent to the clerk's
desk nnd had read the customary resolution,
which was unanimously agreed to, declaring
that the Senate had heard with great sorrow
of the death of Senator Vance, nnd ordering
that a committee of nine Senators be np
Kiuted to accompany the remains to North
Carolina: that tho House of Representatives
be notified of his death and invited to attend
the funeral, and that tho Sergeant-at-Arms
should have charge of the funeral.
In accordance with the terms of this resolu
tion, the Vice President appointed the follow
ing committee: Messrs. Bansom, George,
Gray, Dubois, Smith, Whito. Manderson.
Blackburn and Chandler.
The resolution of Senator Bansom extend
ing an invitation to nttend tho funeral at 1
p. m. yesterday to the President and his
Cabinet, tho Chief Justice and associate jus
tices of the Supreme Court, tho diplomatio
corps, the major general commanding the
army, and the senior ndmiral of tho navy was
Tho following honorary pall-bearers en tho
part ot tho Senate were appointed by tho
Vice President: Senators Morrill, Sherman,
Harris, and McPherson.
As a further mark of respect tho Senate
took a recess until 3.30 this ntternoon.
When the Senate reconvened at 3.S0 this
afternoon, alter the recess taken out of
respect to tho lato Senator Vance, the cham
ber presented a metamorphosed appearance.
The chairs of the Senators had been crowded
more closely together and additional seating
capacity was obtained by bringing in a largo
number of light folding chairs and placing
them in overy possiblo space. Largo up
holstered chairs had been placed in the semi
circular space facing tho Vico President's dais,
those for the family of the deceased states
man and invited guests being on his left nnd
for tho President nnd other officials on tho
right. On the clerk's desk was n masivo
floral piece, representing a broken column,
composed of tho dark copper-colored leaves
ot tho gallx, a North Carolina mountain
plant, while nt tho foot of tho shaft was tho
emblem of peace, tho palm branch, while
twined nround it was a wreath of la Trance
roses. This was the tribute from tho de
ceased statesman's colleagues in the Senate.
In the recess behind tho Vice President was
n tall waving palm, flanked on either side by
North Carolina first; b.inked in the corners of
tho chamber and at tho foot of each pilaster
were palms or firs. Tho galleries were
crowded with a distinguished audience long
before tho hour of 3.30, ladles largely pre
ponderating. In tho front bench of the ladies'
gallery was Mrs. Nellie Grant Sartons.
The casket was borne from the marble
have no objection on principle, I trust, to this
exigency of modern journalism. But jou
must bo familiar with it hero in Paris."
She was perfectly calai and business-like.
It was a pleasure to hear her voice, which
was soft and sweet and carsselng. Never had
the deputy so regretted tho temporary loss of
his sight as at that moment.
"Mon Dleu, madame," he said when she
had finished speaking, "I cannot say that I
object to tho modern system of obtaining In
formation from direct sources and from tho-o
most able to enlighten the public on tho burn
ing question; of tho day. Wo public men owe
ourselves in a certain measure to the public.
And I am a journalist myself. At the same
time I think that it cannot be denied that the
curosity of the newspaper reader is insatiable
and that tho interview," ho prounounecd it
"intericff.""is in some degree abused of.
But, ah,"' ho continued, throwing all his gal
lantry into his expression, "If the lutervieffcr
was always so charming a person as I am sure
I have the honor of speaking to, though, alas,
I cannot seo her, we"
'You have had a duel?" said the lady, in
"3Ion Dieu, yes," answered the deputy in
nn offhand way. "It's a part of tho com
plete politician's duties, -you know." This
with a laugh. "Is it about my duel that you
wish me to speak?" ho continued. "Becaiuso
if so Ixan only refer you to my seconds. It
would be quite against etiquette for me to
say an j thing on that subject for publication.
It would look like boasting."
"No," she continued. "I do. not como to
nsk you about your duel. It has been fully
reported. Indeed, an account of it, illus
trated with kodak views of its various
phases, was published In our Sunday sup
plement last week."
"Ah, to bo sure. And would you excuseme,
but as a journalist this interests me. Is it long
that you have been engaged In this profes
sion? It seems a strange profession for a lady
who I am sure is both young and charming."
"Ladies that are young and charming havo
ju3t got to do the best for themselves, tho
same as ladies who are neither the ono nor
tho other. I have been a writer to the press
for some years, but it is only quite lately that
I have added interviewing to my work."
"I should have thought that fashions, tho
picture galleries, literature, the theaters"
"Yes, I attend to all those. You see I don't
write exclusively for the Informer. I con
tribute to about ten diferent papers, and I
write books and plays besides."
"I dare say you earn a very good Income?"
"From thirty to forty thousand francs a
year," said Miss Clitheroe.
The deputy drew his breath. "There's a
worker for you," he cried. "Forty thousand
francs! Why, that's four times the amount
that a grateful country allows mo for my
labors on her behalf as a member of Parlia
ment Forty thousand francs! Why, when
I was a journalist not so long ago, either
I was delighted with a place which brought
me In 1,00C francs a year, including what I
could make out of the local advertisers. You
must bo very capable."
"I am fairly well known. A book or two of
mine have sold well. That is doubtless the
reason why the editors are glad to employ
room by nine Capitol policemen in uniform
nnd laid before the Vico President's rostrum.
The lid was hidden by a mass of flowers,
chiefly white rosos tied with broad purple
ribbon. Conspicuous by its beauty and size
and by its solitary grandeur was a single
American beauty rose fastened to tho head ot
tho casket. When tho active pall-bearers had
deposited their burden a number ot pine's
were brought In and grouped about tho form
of tho dead Senator. Everywhere was tho
pine, seeming to bring tho pungont fragrance
ot tho North Carolina mountains into tho
A few minutes nfterwards tho family of
Senator Vance entered, and soon after com
mittees of tho Scnato and House appointed
to nttend tho funeral entered. Then came
tho honorary pall-bearers, who were seated
at the side of the casket facing the audience.
"The Speaker and members of the Houso
of Bepresentatives," announced tho usher,
nnd Speaker Crisp was escorted down the
main aisle and took a seat beside tho Vico
President, while tho members of the House
arranged themselves in the space in the rear of
Then followed Chief Justice and the asso
ciate justices of tho Supremo Court, who
were shown to their seats.
"The President of the United States and
his Cnbinet," nnnounced the usher, and the
assembly arose and remained standing until
tho President, accompanied by all tho mem
bers of tho Cabinet except Secretary Lamont,
passed down tho main aislo and were seated.
Sir Julian Pnuncefoto, tho British ambassa
dor, was escortod to a seat next to tho Cabinet
officers. Other distinguished guests who were
present but not announced were Bishop
Keano, rector of tho Cathollo University, who

Mr. nnd Mrs. Costly and Major Goodloe. At
4 o'clock, the invited guests being all present,
Bev. Dr. 3Ioses D. Hogo, of Bichinond, Va.,
offered tho prayer, beginning:
"Oh, God, roost high, most holy, most merciful,

dued by hallowed memorks of the departed and
tender offlces of the hour, what can we do but
niToko lhy favor. Thy help. Thy benedictlonl
Hear our prayer. Oh, Lord, and givo ear unto
He also delivered tho sermon, in tho courso
ot which ho said:
"Tho shadow of a great sorrow falls on this
chamber to-day. The blooming fragrance of
Spring, the sun shining bright and clear, bring
no light to our eyes and no cheer to our hearts.
It Is not my province by any recital of the pri
vate virtues and great public services uf our do
parted brother and friend to aw aken nfreh tho
sorrow which the recital of such things must
nlways excite, 'lhis tributo to his worth as a
man, a citizen, a soldier, a Senator, and saco
this tribute will be paid becomingly by those
whose long acquaintance and litlinate associa
tion qualify them for such a task, and when
these offerings of respect and affection are com
pleted they will form a part of the history tho
personal history of the man, and not only so,
but a pvrt of tho history of the country, of which
he was servant and beloved of the people. Y hat
is most noble In the character of a public min,
bo ho soldier, be he sage, or be he senator. Is a
sincere, consistent heartfelt piety.
"Piety towards God is the Incentive to tho full
discharge of all duties toward man. It Is the
truest and most unfailing inspiration ot honor;
It Is the strongest safeguard of personal integ
rity. It Is the most cnlcient aid In the pursuit
and in the attainment ot whatsoever things are
true and Just and honest and lovely and ot great
repute. I stand hero to aClrm that the man who
lives perpetually as under his great task-masters
eye, who believes and remembers that God
is always tho witness of his conduct and will be
his final Judge, Is the man who will ever bo most
fearless meeting all his responsibilities and
most faithful In the discharge of all of bis trusts.
An6 now when 1 remember on whom this be
reavement has fallen with lu heaviest weight
what can I do, wllat can we all do.lmt to take up
in the arms of our faith and Christian sympathy
and affection these who are most bereaved, and
commend them to tho father ot mercies, to the
God of all comfort"
In conclusion ho reiterated tho hymn, "Thy
will be done."
The concluding prayerwas by Chaplain 3111
burn, of the Senate, niter which the invitea
guests left tho chamber in tho reverse order of
their entrancn and the cu3ket was borne out
by n aetaehmcLt of Capitol police.
The Senate then adjourned.
The special tram which bore tho remains to
Ashevllle left Washington at 9.30 last night.
Besides the committees of the two Houses it
carried the family of the lato Senator, repre

"Wonderful, wonderful," said the deputy,
fretting nt tho bandage that blinded him, so

DISEASE POWERLESS V
Pain Helloed, Disease Arrested. Rheuma
tism, Neuralgia, Deafness, Catarrh, Spi
nal Diseases, Paralysis, and Other -Maladies
The spacious parlor offices ot Dr. Damon,
at COS Twelfth street northwest, continue to
be crowded with anxious people. Tho fame
ot tho doctor's wonderful success has gone
abroad far nnd near, and the afflicted are
availing themselves of what has proven to bo
their only reliable means of cure. Hero may
bo seen the deaf, the rheumatic, the palsied,
and the blind sitting side by side with dys
peptic, tho sufferer from catarrh, and the un
fortunate whose life has been sapped by the
lingering torments of spinal curvature. In
short, there is no variety of dlscaso which
does not find its way to the offices ot these
gifted magnetic healers. These mec.ore pos
sessed of a power that belongs to no other
men In tho curing of disease. It is a power
which tho doctors have been conscious of
since early life, nnd, combining with it a
thorough training In the science of medicine
and tho treatment of disease, they have been
nblo to obtain results unequaled by other
practitioners. Dr. Damon cures all forms of
female complaints withont tho uso of instru
ments or exposure. In fact, no diseaso in the
whole category of human nllmcnts is proof
ngnlnst tho doctor's magnetic power.
Take no ono's word except that of a cured
patient. Let no prejudice stand in the way
of reason, but whatever your complaint may
bo, it will be to your interest to consult him.
Magnetism is the greatest boon of this age,
and It is fast supplanting the old-fashioned
and obsolete, methods of our grardfnthers by
making permanent and lasting cures when
nil other systems havo utterly failed.

spreading out his hands; "they are at your

"Well, then." said the lady, quietly, "tell
mo tho story alout jour wife."
Tho deputy started in his chair and flashed
up to the roots of his hnir. It was some time
before be could llnd word". At last he stam
mered oat: "i'ou say? You say?"
"I asked you to ted me about jour wife."
"Jly wife?" crlod Mr. Yerneuil. "Quelle
blague. I havo no wife!"
"I thought otherwise," said his interviewer.
"A story has been printed in another Sew
York paper that somo years ago you married
in England, and deserted jour wife after a
few months because you discovered that sho
bad not tho fortune that you had expected to
gain with her. It was to get somo explana
tion on this subject that I was directed tn call
on jou. I confess that I hardly liked to ap
proach so very dellcato a question, and, per
haps, should not have mustered up the cour
age to do so but for tho ery kind encourage
ment you ha o just given me."
"Ln bonno blague," laughed tho deputy
nncasilyj "that wretched old affair! So it has
got into the papers, has it? I am glad to
hear it, and I am extremely obliged to you,
mademoiselle, for giving me the opportunity
to publish the truth on tho matter. Ah, if
that is all that my enemies can llnd to crush
mo with I have littlo cause to fear them. My
wife? Yes, let us talk about her?"
A pause ensued, during which tho deputy
fidgeted nervously on his choir, opening and
shutting his hands, shrugging his shoulders,
and shaking his head. Jteanwhlle the lady
sat quite still, watching him quietly and play
ing with a laco handkerchief, which was dcli
catoly perfumed with "New Mown Hay."
Yerneuil broke the pllence at last, speaking
volubly. "I was never legally married at all.
That is to say, not legally according to the
French law, which is tho only law that I rec
ognize and that can affect me. In the first
place, I was married In England; and in the
second, at tho tlmo of my marriage I was
only 24, and no Frenchman con marry legally
before tho age of 25, unless he has the consent
ot his parents to the marriage. Neither my
fathei nor my mother knew anything about
my marriage, and on that account alone it is
void." Then checking himself, he asked:
"What perfume is that you wear, mademoi
selle an English scent, is it not?"
"My wife?" be cried, "what n story! A
wretched miss who took advantage of my
youth to ensnare me. I must tell you that at
that time I was living in London, correspond
ing for one or two French papers, giving les
sons ln short, doing the best I could for my
self; a boy, you know. Well, thero I fell ln
with a girl. I never knew much what she
was, but I thought her pretty and all that,
and well, you know what boys are I fell in
lovo with her. She was a cunning minx, and
her old mother wag worse. I had thought ot
a flirtation, tho two had made up their minds
for a marriage. Ah. they saw what was in
me. They foresaw that sooner or later Bich

"What was her name?" nsfced Miss Clith
eroe. "Alice" ho pronounced it "Alees" "Alice
Millinjrton, Alees Milangtonfr." Hero he
laughed nastily. "Oh, tho idyll of my youth!
Oh! tho life I led between that old vfxen of a
mother-in-law and that prudish icebersr, that
canting, formal Alees! Ab, it was there and
then that I learned what English hypocrisy
means. It was then that I got to understand
the truo sisniOcation of your word 'shoking.'
It was 'Richard, shoklng!' 'Klchard, shokingl'
all the day long. And no money. The two
had barely MO francs a month between them.
You can imagine what our menage was. I
had always believed that my wife had a cer
tain dot. But not a farthing."
"Was sho pretty, nt least?" asked Miss
Clitheroe, with some show of sympathy.
'Tretty. mon Dieu," said the deputy, shrug
ring his shoulders and expanding his hands.
"Pretty? As flat as n match, and pale. I
can't imagine what I was doing. I think she
must have captured me with her sentimen
tality. You know that thero Is always a time
in a man's llfo when he Is susceptible to that
sort of thing. She used to say to me in
French, 'Richard, mong ayemy, jai tadore,'
and roll her eyes up at me. and I thought it
the sweetest thing I had ever seen or heard.
That was before my famous marriage. After
ward it was quite another tune. I couldn't
stay out a night without hearing tho most
fearful reproaches. Ah, yes, my marriage.
Let us talk about It. I stood it as long as I
could, but the tlmo came when I remembered
my duty to my mother, my poor mother,
whom I had disregarded. A man's heart al
ways will turn to his mother again sooner or
later, you know. And I thought of tho pain
I must bo causing her."
"Like a good son," said Miss Clitheroe.
"As you say," said tho deputy, rising from
his chair nnd leaning against tho mantel
piece. "Thought of tho mother whoso heart
I was breaking, and returned to her, like the
prodigal son. Ha, ha, ha!"
"Leaving Jless Alees to her own sweet de
vices?" "What had I to do with her longer? Sho
wasn't my wife according to tho French law,
whatever the English law may be. I was sick
of her. She was n drag on mo; a weight
round my neck; a woman who would have
hampered me nil through life. Leave her?
"It was also said," continued the lady, ris
ing from her chair, "that you were thinking
of marrying again."
"Why 'again?' That ia not tho word, since
I nover was legally married. Asa matter c!
fact, I have never thonght of such a thing.
It Is very difficult for an ambitious man, for
a man who means, quand meme, to make his
way, to find a suitable companion. Host
women are only drags. The women who
help a man are the rare exceptions. Ah, it I
could meet with tho woman of my dreams,
bow gladly would I lay at her feet my life,
my future, my position, my all. Such a
woman, for instance" He pausod here
and turned bis face toward her.
