A On* Sided Argument.
"He wants to marry Mary."
"What do you think of him?''
"Oh. he's all right, 1 guess!"
"But doesn't it strike you that he is
a little bit foolish?"
"Of course, dearest, I cannot argue
that with you. because the fact that
he wants to get married would give
you the strangle hold."—Houston Post.

threw loose the reins upon the with
ers of his mount and let the dainty
bay have her will. She shook her
head, curvetting, making great pretense
of fear at blowing leaf or swinging
moss. And he laughed in sympathy
with her mood, ridiug erect, lithe, his
well set up body swaying to her every
Down the old road they sped. His
eyes caught frequent vista of bayou
and marsh and meadow and some
times the spreading sweep of the river
beyond. Now and again he bent to
avoid swaying branch or dead gray
cluster of Spanish moss.
At length he came to the head of
the old live oak avenue that led to the
great house that was his destination.
He swung his mai*e around the huge
old post and sped forward. At length
he could see the house.
He dismounted. There was no one
about, so he tied his horse and mount
ed the crumbling steps.
Coming to the door, he knocked.
There was no answer. He knocked
again and again and again. It was an
important mission that he was on.
Surely some one must be about. He
hesitated for a moment, then, thrust
ing the door open, entered.
It was an old room and very somber.
He could see no one in it.
"Mr. de Valette! Mr. de Valette!
Mr.'de Valette!" No one answered.
Then suddenly he saw asleep on a
mahogany sofa by the fireplace a girl
He turned to tiptoe from the room.
But then he had never seen before a
girl quite like her—so delicate, so
fragile, of such perfect beauty. There
was within him something that made
him stop. He stopped. There was
something within him that bade him
go very silently to her and to look at
her more closely—she, so wonderful.
And he went to her silently, obeying
that within him, and looked, bending
over the high back of the great seat.
Yes, she was beautiful—very—and more
wonderful far than he had thought—
the lips half parted—red lips--and be-
tween them teeth of perfect whiteness.
Her hair was of brown gold, and the
sun was in it. And her cheek was
like the pink of a seashell. He looked,

miration that comes of that wonder
She stirred a little. He knew that
he should go. But there was within
him something that would not let him,

looked at him. A tiny white hand
rose, fluttered, then went toward nlni,
touching his coat.

"Oh, pardon, pardon!"
She said In hushed voice of great
"1 thought you were iu my dream!"
He took a step back, embarrassed,
fingers clutching his hat.
"I—I came to see Mr. de Valette,"
he said awkwardly. "I am Mr. Roder
ick Steele's son. Gilbert Steele. My
father has written to Mr. de Valette.
I—1 am here by appointment."
"Your name is Gilbert?" she asked.
She said gravely as she rose and
"My name is Madeleine."
He repeated it after her slowly, with
a little intake of breath.
"Madeleine—Madeleine!" And then,
"It's a wonderful name!"
"Gilbert is wonderful, too," she de
clared very seriously.
There was a little pause. He asked
"Do you live here?"
"Yes," she replied.
"How long have you lived here?"
"All my life. M. de Valette is my fa

manded. "I live within five miles!"
"Only five miles!" she cried "Why

He said slowly, appalled with the

But she did not move, nor did he.

at one another.
"Ha\ jou always lived only five
miles awaj she asked at length.
"Well." ho replied. "I've been away
a good deal. They sent me to be
"And are you?" she asked. "Are
you all educated?"
He said seriously:
"Yes. it's finished."
"Then you won't have to go away
any more, will you?"
"Not to school."
She said, at length, thoughtfully:
"You must know a great deal. And
"And yet what?"
"It will be a long time," she replied

seriously, thoughtfully, "before you'll
be quite an old gentleman, won't it?"
He said bo.A ishly:
"Why. no! I'm twenty already."
"You're twenty years old." she
"And," he vent on, "I'll be twenty
one in less than a year."
"But," she protested, "you're only
twenty now I'll be twenty in less
than three years."
"Then," he said impressively, "I am
just three years older than you. Well,
I think a man ought to be three years
older than a woman."
She asked, a little troubled:
"Very much older?"
"Well," he returned judicially, "eh
—three or four years."
She turned toward the window.
•I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN MY DREAM."
"Isn't it lovely out in the sun
today?" she asked.
"I came pretty fast," he said. "I
galloped all the way."
"Did you?" she cried. "Oh, what
color is your horse?"
"Come look at it."
"Oh," she cried eagerly, "some time
will you let me ride it?"
"I should say I would!" he assented
emphatically There were flowers on
the table. He stopped suddenly, see
"Did you pick these flowers?" he
She nodded. "Just a little while

"Will you give me one?" he asked*
a bit diffidently.
She replied, in emphasis as his own:
"I should say I would!"
She plucked from the mass upon the
table a rose, tendering it to him..
"After you've seen my father, will
you have to go home?" she asked.
"Yes," he answered. "I'll have to
take the answer to a letter."
"But you'll come back again?"
"Yes, I will."
"Can you come back this very day?"
"And tomorrow, too?" she persisted.
"Will you come tomorrow, too, per

with sudden gloom, "No, I can't come
"Why?" she queried.
He said slowly:
"It's a secret."
"But." she cried brightly, "you can
come the day after."
For a moment he was silent. Then
he said abruptly:
"Do you ah\ays wear a white dress
She asked wistfully:
"Do you like it?"
"It's wonderful." he cried. "I think
all women in the world ought to wear
white dresses! And you always wear
a white dress—like that?"
She said lightly:
"Well, until after I'm married to

lips apart. He said slowly, almost
She nodded. "Yes," she replied
casually. She was not looking at him
now. "You see. I'm to be married to
"You mean it?" he asked. He could
not quite believe.
She responded cheerfully.
"It's all arranged. M. Raoul Is quite
an old gentleman. I have just met
him. He is very pleasant."
"Why, yes'" She spoke with faint
surprise. To her it was quite a matter
of course. She was very young—she
did not know
He looked at her for a long moment,
eyes fixed upon her. At length he
said, in the bitter resignation that is
"That's all, then."
She asked apprehensively:
He said slowly—very slowly:
"All of everj thing."
"You don't mean"— she began quick
He swung around sharply.
"It's the last time I shall come here,"
"But why?" she asked.
"I said that it was a secret why I
couldn't come tomorrow," he returned
bitterly. "But now I can tell you. It's
because I'm going to the war."
An involuntary little cry left her
"Our company marches tonight."
"You mustn't go!" she exclaimed
tensely. "I don't want you to go!"
"And now I hope that I won't come
back!" He turned away.
She cried stri(kenly:
"You're angry with me!"
"No. I'm not."
"Yes, you are," she asserted, "or you
wouldn't £0 aw ay. You wouldn't even
say that you were going. You're an

in a breath—swift, broken.
He cried with bitterness, turning on
"Do you think I want to come back
to find you married?"
"But how can I help that?" she
asked tremulously. "I must be obedi
ent. I always have been obedient."
She was before him, eager, agonized,
protesting. But he was obdurate. The
iron had bitten deep. He said slowly:
"I can't even see you again—never."

girl's face. The words of her new

was natural that Mile, de Va

little cry of alarm, and hei- brother,
coming behind, strode forward swiftly.

Gilbert turned, his shoulders squar

in many ways a man, and he lacked
not in either courage or dignity.

"I am Gilbert Steele. My father sent

low. "He wishes to know what price

"No, sir. But my father considered
it a fair proposal."
"By any chance," Inquired De Va

mounting his cheeks.
"Of course you couM not!" The

he went on. "that he shall not have

Gilbert Steele, color yet higher, faced
the other with dignity.
"I did not intend any offense." he
said quietly "I am very ignorant of
French custom's. Certain of them I
could never hope to comprehend. Be
assured that I shall never Interfere

"To the bride!" they cried, the three
together. And then her aunt had
gone. No one was looking. Suddenly
that which was within her became
greater and yet more great. It be
came greater than habit or fear or
obedience. It became the greatest
thing of all the world—greater even
than that great emptiness that was
her heart. One person of all the world
she wanted, and that ore was Gilbert.
One thing of all the things there were
she wanted, and that thing was to
be with him, of him, his, and to have

Came to her ears dimly as from il

"To a bright wedding day!"
And it was then that she fled, blind

The other snorted.
"I don't believe you'll be able to tell

"Do you think we'll all be—killed?"
Wolf eyed him severely.
"Something tells me, Crawley," he
said at length, "that you're going to
be one of the survivors of this war."
There could be no doubt of the fer

"Oh. I do want to be!"
Wolf again eyed him.
"See here, my son," he said, "are
you considerable of a coward?"

in which Crawley had disappeared—
"that I think is going to desert. I

She nodded. Indifferently she said:
"I will do it."
"Well, I take that kindly of you." he
acknowledged. He handed her the ex

the second powderhorn that lay across
his shoulder. She took them and went
to the cleft tree that stood by the log.
"I will put them here for him," she
"He'll be here," he said "a likely

he was gone.
L'Acadienne had forgotten him ere
he had vanished from sight. She stood,
arms akimbo, silent, motionless. Only
her eyes moved, and they moved not
much. At length she heard the bushes
rustle behind her. She turned.
Came toward her Madeleine de Va
lette. Golden brown hair was dishev
eled. Her eyes were wide. The hem
of her white dress was torn, and to it
adhered a bit of vine—a bramble.
Madeleine came forward slowly.
"Have you seen any one pass this
way?" she asked.
"Why?" L'Acadienne wondered the
wonderment was in her voice.
"I was following some one, but he
was very far ahead and on horseback.
He rode into the woods, and I lost

L'Acadienne shrugged her lithe shoul
