New York, N. T.. Jan. 17. Andre de Fouquleres, a Parisian, had not a lit
tle trouble In making his way through the ever vigilant customs officials.
The French fashion expert had started from Paris with a letter from Myron
T Herrick, the United States ambassador, to the treasury department, re
questing that M. Ie Fouquieres's 33 trunks, which contained only personal
raiment, be passed in here without examination by the customs officers.
Vnluckily, M. de Fouquleres had mis laid this important missive, and every
one of his trunks of masculine finery was delved into and turned topsy turvy.
One of the trunks, when opened, revealed the presence of a worn n passenger's
pet cat, which had been placed in the beau's trunk by a practical joker,
much to the discomfort of M. de Fouquieres and the indignation of the cat's

with a SBdden impulse. "Would it be I
The moment she entered, Helen
seemed to feel the atmosphere of a
suppressed tragedy, although there was
nothing In the surroundings to suggest
it. The front room, where she waited,
was in its usual exquisite order.
Helen remembered of having once
called in a house after a funeral. The
j blinds were all up. everything was as
usual, yei sne naa Deen vividly con
scious of the atmosphere of death.
A swish of skirts in the next room,
and Mrs. Randall entered. She seemed
to have aged 10 years since Helen saw
her last, but she greeted her as though
nothing had happened.
For several moments their conversa
tion was only that of a formal after
noon call. Helen felt now that she had
made a mistake in coming. She knew
it must be torture for Mrs. Randall to
sit there and talk of trivial, Impersonal I
tnings. Ana since sne aid not refer to
her husband and the loss of his posi
tion, Helen, of course, could not.
To Helen's surprise. Mr. Randall ap
peared at the door. He was evidently
on his way out, for he had his coat and
"Mollie. where did you put those pa
pers? I'd better take them."
Then, seeing Helen, he came forward
and greeted her cordially. But Heln
felt that his manner was forced. He,
too seemed older: there were anxious,
haggard lines in his face that she had
never noticed before.
When, a few moments later, the outer
door closed after him, Mrs. Randall,
who had gone with him into the hall,
came back, threw herself on the couch
and burst into tears.
"Oh, you know, of course," she
sobbed. "Everybody knows! At first I
wanted to pretend that nothing had
happened but I can't I can't. I try to
keep up before him so he won't break
down. But I don't know what we're
going to do I don't know what we're
going to do!"
"Oh, you musn't give way like this,"
murmured Helen, almost on the verge
of tears herself. "Nothing Is ever as
bad as it seems at first."
"Oh yes, this is! And I blame my

"But a man with Mr. Randall's ex

to say it reassuringly.
