For tha first scene of It imagine tha sitting
room of a young cavalry captain, discreetly
mentioned as Roger D. Though it is little

To hi amazement a woman ts announced.

The young captain Is too polite to admit it.
"I can only say," says he, "that I shall be
happy if 1 can serve you."
"Without knowing reel" she aaks, a faint
smile being visible through her veil
From her voice the young officer begins to
suspect that she is not wholly a stranger to
him. The face of a fair unknown, enen in the
streets and at the races, has been daunting
him for weeks.
"You are getting ready," she continues, "to
fight a duol with my husband."
"Your husband r cries Roger.
"I am Mme. Boulanger," she says. "I sup
posed that you knew me."
Nothing could have astonished the captain
more. He certainly had a duel on hand that
morning. He was to meet Col. Boulanger.
The meeting grew out of some vulgar tness

was befriending. "You are a fool," said the
friends of Roger D., "to be drawn into a
quarrel about such a creature as she is." But
the young man was high spirited, and would
not be moved from his determinatiou to fight.
He now turned quietly to Mme. Boulanger.
"Are you aware," he asked, "of the cause of
this quarrel V
"Yes," she said, "I have learned. It was a
quarrel about cards at the club. At least,
that is the story they told me."
"The story is correct," said Roger.
"And I have come," she continued, "to in
tercede with you. Between two such mn as
you a fatal result is certain. And they tell
me that you are the better swordsman."
"Would you have me forego my advan

of the visit "Why should I not try to kill
this man, now that I have an additional
reason for hating himT
"What reason i" she demanded.
"The reason that he is your husband," he
Things were getting dangerous. The visitor
made her last appeal. She told f her two
little girls. She said that it was ouly for
them she feared. She added that she could
cry with shame for her visit, but she could
not see her children orphaned. It was not
wholly on nor children's account that the
young man promised, first, to avert the duel
if an apology would avert it, and, second, if
tula failed, to act only on the defensive.
Having gained her point, the visitor went

way entered in great distress, said that she
was the sister of Roger D., and waited, too.
"All will be welL" says Mme. Bnulaneer.
"Heaven," says the other, "will not allow

It will be remembered that at a recent
meeting of the Rock Island Citiaens' Im
provement association, Mr. D. 8. Schures
man, a Cincinnati architect, made tome
remarks concerning the letting of the
contract for the stone work for recon
struction of the arsenal dam. His asser
tion then was that be believed the con
tract bad fallen Into the hands of a pool.
which would provide inferior stone and
would deliver it at Rock Island dressed,
thus depriving local labor of work
which would otherwise come to
it and which in the eye of
justice it Its due. The association up
on bearing Mr. Schureman'a statement,
took st pi to lay the matter properly bes
fore Maj. McGinnis, acting commandant
at Rock Island arsenal snd in the mean
time Mr. Schureman said he would go to
Washington and endeavor to get the con
tract for the stone set sside. Mr. Scbure-
man baa now returned to Rock Island
with a view cf opening an architect's of
fice here and his interests will be natur
ally more or less connected with those of
Rock Island in the future. It is learned
that Msj. McOinnis upon receiving the
memorial of the Rock Island association,
wroe Qen. Benet, chief of ordnance, in
forming him that in his belief a pool
had gotten bold of the contract
and that it would be advisable not to
confirm it until investigation could be
made. Mr. Schureman's explanation to
General Benet was so satisfactory that the
chief of ordnance decided to decline to
approve the contract and assured Mr.
Schureman that be would recommend the
secretary of war to advertise for new
bids, and that the accompanying specif!
cations would he so amended as to pro
vide for stone cut. and uncut.
This news will be gratifying not only
to local pride in a first class aud substan
