here I learned the secret sorrow of
this child of fortune.
We haS gone for an aimless walk
and after crossing the park of the
chateau we took the road to the vil
lage. The cottagers all bowed and
smiled to De Rumllly and he stopped
to acknowledge their greetings and
inquire after their health. Suddenly
De Rumllly stopped and remained
staring fixedly and, following the
direction of his gaze, I saw nothing
but a small shop, unoccupied, and
with a sign on the door which read:
"Shop to rent."
The next moment De Rumllly took
my arm and in a changed voice said:
"Let us go back."
I was too astonished to speak and
we walked on in silence, his arm still

"It was several years ago, tired of

In search of a place so retired that I
could lose my identity and cease to

But I found an ideal place at last on
purity in her face. Her mother was
dead and her father hat', been a sailor
who had perished at sea. She gained
her living by keeping a little shop of
general merchandise, including books
and magazines. I went in one day
in search of the latter and v.-hile look
ing over the shelves devoted to litera
ture I fell in love -vith the little mis
tress of the establishment.
"I became one of Mdlle. Armelle's

the coast of Brittany, where there
was only one hotel and whose popula
tion was augmented In the summer by
a few modest families seeking the
seashore and an occasional artist in
-search of scenery at a small expense.
"Here, In this simple little village,
where I had gone for peace and quiet,
I experienced the crisis of my life
I fell In love. And I also experienced
the greatest unhapplness that can
come to any one that of loving with
out being loved in return.
"She was 20 or 21 years old, but
she looked much less, so great was
the air of childish innocence and
appearance. She was simple and
brave and sweet, one of the rare and
beautiful souls that one does not meet
often in a lifetime.
"You know that in my life In the
world women have been gracious and
kind to me, and I never overvalued
their attention, knowing only too well
that money and position cast a glam
our over the most insignificant.
Nevertheless, it hurt my pride a little
to have Mdlle. Armelle treat me no
better than the commonest sailor of
the village, or the sentimental artists
who made eyes at her over her counter.
"This little girl knew absolutely
nothing of the world. I longed to win
her In my character of a poor man
away on his vacation, and then placa
her in the position she would be en
titled to as my wife.
"Why didn't you tell her then all
that you had to offer her?" I asked.
Rumilly shook his head. "She was
not to be bought," he replied, "not by
a king had he offered her a throne. I,
who had never been denied a wish,
had to sit and listen to her dreams
of the future and her love for some
one else. Perhaps I needed my Ire
son, but oh! how I longed to carry
her away and make her life easy rnd
happy for her; because there was ever
present In her heart a haunting doubt
of her lover, a fear that he would not
work for her, that he did not love her
enough to stick to the drudgery of
making even a simple living. I saw
this fear and my heart ached for her.
"One day this young man went to
Paris. He was to return at the end
of a week. He had never been there
and had an opportunity to make the
trip very cheaply. All the week I
saw that Armelle was worried, and at
the end of the week, when he did not
come, her anxiety grew and deepened
day by day. Still he did not come,
and day followed day, r.nd the poor
little girl grew thin and pale.
"It was plain that he had deserted
her, that he never meant to return.
At the end of a month I could stand
it no longer. I told her I loved her;
told her my real position in the world
and begged her to marry me. I don't
think she even heard what I said, for
her eyes never left the road that leads
out of the village.
"Then I went ba-ek to Paris and
tried to forget. But I could not. Al
ways I saw before me that sad little
figure, drooping at the door of her
shop. At last I determined to go back
and beg her again to marry me. I
would plead gently and perhaps if I
came as a comforter she might re
ceive me, and finally learn to love me.
I resolved to be patient and gentle.
"Full of hope I arrived at the little
town. But a terlble disappointment
awaited me. The little shop was
closed, and on the door was nailed
the sign, 'Shop to rent.'

CHILDREN'S ILLS III SUER
The hardest period of a child's life is during the heated term. It is then that

But these are all troubles that can be easily cured. The child needs a few doses

TREASURY BALANCE DROPS
Changes Reflect Drain in Carrying
Out New Works.
Washington, July 22. The work
ing balance in the treasury offices
dropped yesterday to $33,950,112.
This, with the balance in banks and
the Philippine treasury and the sil
ver bullion, subsidiary coin, etc., re
duced the total balance in the gen
eral fund to $97,545,361. Yester
day's working balance is $1,821,755
less than Tuesday's and $4,231,519
less than the previous day.
These changes reflect the normal
drain on the treasury for carrying
out new works under the appropria
tions made available this month, the
beginning of a new fiscal year. July
figures run downward for a time al
most every year, largely on this ac
count. The working balance today is
double that on May 16. but the cor
poration tax payments had not help-
ed to swell the revenues then. The
present fiscal year started off with a
working balance of $36,300,664 and
the following day, July 2, it had
jumped to $45,583,494.
