to wait for yon. I have told yon all. and
after this sad confession you can under
stand that my only hope lies ,n you. Yon
can save the honor and hapi inesa of the
beings I love, their life and n ine, all that
is most precious, most dear to me!"
"I do not know. You mnst ;lnd a means.
Yoa seo me at the end of my streugth,
without either intelligence or courage. Do
what you will, but save me."
In the disorder of my own ideas I sor.ght
to discover by what means, if any, I could
rescue this charming little I nmbuR, who
sat upright waiting, her eyes fixed on my
face with an expression of unmistakable
anguish from her position. That she was
a little Liimbuu I did not doubt for a mo
ment. My reason, protest: ag strongly
against my compassion, told me so strong
ly, endeavoring to bring me back to my
habitual skepticism.- But nothing could
prevail against the singular excitement
produced in me by the ttfrrificd look out of
this little demon's eyes and the wild curv
ing of her lips. It was she herself, after
all, who suggested the plan I must follow,
for in spite of her profound moral distress
she was more lucid than I.
"That confession, for a confession it is.
which I have signed, must nut remain for
tn hour in the hands of those people," she
exclaimed authoritatively. "If you are

I said timidly: 'T.ut it is m arly 5 o'clock
and todiiy is the hist of the month. I have
my liquidation still to make."
She waved the plea to one side, and I saw
clearly that my liquidation was nothing to
her. And compared to her own it was
nothing. Without resisting further I took
up my hat and said: "I iimnlf then. Wait
for me here.

uaineii m sen me rich mai deigned to
raise his he-id with condescending famil
iarity. This displeased me, and 1 opened
the conversation brusquely eaoueh.
"Monsieur, a few hours ago a lady, one
of my friends, through an unfortunate
train of circumstances which I cannot ex
plain here, was arrested in your establish
ment by an inspector."
M. Hoiiti'iiips' lips parted in a smile.
"A sick woman, a mad w onian, surely
irresponsible; for her educat.on, her fami
ly, her social position"
"A shoplifter," he repeat.l, with cold
"Be it so, a shoplifter. In whose behalf
I have come to ;usk. One of your inspect

"That is the custom."
"Yes, for the professional delinquent-.

ridding herself of the lace si e had taken.
If you only knew who this lady is"
"I have not yet seen the papers." He
rang. An employe appeared bowing low
ns if to a sovereign. Bontemi s said: "riend
me the chief inspector." The employe dis
appeared, and the old inspect-r came in al
most instantly, saluted in niLitary fashion
and stood at attention.
"Today," said Bontemps, "an elegantly
dressed lady was brought bef re you who

"Very good. What impression did the
lady make on you?"
"Mon Dieti, monsieur, no particular im

most the same words. You know how
cunniug women are. As soon as they are
caught they have only one idea to get
around us, and they cry, thy beg, they
wring their bauds, they talk about their
husbands and their children and their
mothers! And if we believe them they
would laugh at us. If we didn't watch
them they would carry your store away

I stood iietrified, unable to say a word.
As a proof of the sagacity of the man he
took me for a police spy!
The merchant cut short thi folly of his
employe and with a superb gesture sent
him away. Scarcely had he gone when I
broke out: "What coufidence n you place,
monsieur, in the judgment and tact of a
man who just now in your very presence
supposes that I am an agent of the police?
I admit thr.i my title of tiaro j is not writ
ten on my face, but good heavens! I do not
resemble a hired detective. Why, your
man sees nothing but thieves, and so sees
a thief in every one. He has Mmply abused
the terror of an unhappy woman. The
whole thing is nothing but a misunder
standing." Bontemps did not budge. His eye was
veiled, his mouth mocking. He replied
simply enough by reading frtm the paper
which lay before him:
"I confess to having been ii nested while
I interrupted his brutal answer.
"Enough, we know what is w ritten there.
But it is just this paper thai we must de
stroy." The great merchant drew himself up
aghast. "But it is our only safeguard.
Thanks to this paper, we are assured that
the culprit will not attempt a second theft.
It is only for that reason that we are satis
fied to proceed no further on a first at
tempt. If I give it backto you"
"You admit, then, that yon will give it

I breathed again. The battl i was gained.
But the conditions were yet to be settled,
and I taw tht the overblown shopkeeper
who was parading himself bt fore me was
not the sort to capitulate for nothing.
"It shall never be said," Sir. Bontemps
continned, "that so honorable a man as
yon, M. le Baron, should coine to me and
be unable to obtain what he desired. But
say for yourself what reparation you think
ought not to be duens for sach an im po
sition upon our good nature."
Reparation! The word was pronounced.

"You . too kind. But how much?'

"They are foreigners!" I cried quickly.

"Well off; no more."

I could scarcely believe my ears. I lifted
my eyes toward Bontemps, and he seemed
transfigured. His vulgar countenance
was eunobled, and he took on the propor
tions of a St. Vincent de Paul. He smiled
as he looked at me.
"Well, M. le Baron, do you accept?"
"I accept." 1 took out my cheek book
and wrote a check on the Bank of France.
Then we made the exchange, one bit of
paper for the other.
1 hastened back to my office, and again
went up the stairs four steps at a time. I
had but one thought to give safety and
happiness back to the poor woman who
waited for me, a prey to such cruel agony.
I threw open the door of my office. The
lovely Italian girl was there in the same
attitude; she seemed not to have stirred in
her horrible waiting. She saw me and
leaped to her feet. Never shall I forget the
look with which she interrogated me.
With a gesture I held out to her the paper.
She seized it as if she had been an animal,
as if the instinct of self preservation,
awakened in her for the first time, had
robbed her of all her charm of manner
and had brought her back to the state of
nature. She read the paper twice, touched
it, scanned it with burning eyes to assure
herself that it was the same, and then with
a cry of joy threw it in the fire. She
watched it burn with inexpressible happi
ness, and then turning toward me, her
hands outstretched and all her grace re
turned, she cried:
"Oh, thank you from the depths of my
soul." Her voice still shook with emo
tion. "And so he gave it back."
"He sold it," I said.
She recoiled. "Sold it? now he dared?"
"Yes, and I did not hesitate."
"What did you give him?"
"Fifty thousand francs."
She grew extremely pale. The day was
almost goue, and in the dusk her eves glit
tered like stars. Mechanically I held out
my hand. She took it. Her own was
burning. She drew a profound sigh aud
fell fainting into my arms.
She went away as she had co:ne, and I
remained, 50,000 francs less at my banker's,
but with the recollection of her gratitude
in my heart I had taken up the ordinary
current of my life again when, ten days
later, on opening my Figaro at breakfast,
my eyes fell upon the following reporto
riai echo of the affair:
M. HONTEMrS SrtEXDID 01 FT.
Yestenlav Jl. Bontemps, the well known di
rector of the niacins of the I'anulis lies Paiws,
handed to the Society for th Ilief of the lie
wrvinp Poor the sum of 50,a fruiies, to be dis
tributed anion? the poor of the twenty arron
diAsementfi of Tarts. This remarkable and suc
cessful man of business, in making so generous a
uso of hia immense fortune, prov8 that he has
not forRotten his own early years, devoted to the
most laborious toil
I was stupefied. Then a sudden flash of
inspiration made daylight within my thick
head. But it was with my money that
the rascal was being so generous! But up
to the present moment I was the generous
philanthropist, for I had not been reim
bursed, and proliably never should be! But
what a hideous speculation this cession of
the paper signed by the lovely Italian for
my 50,000 francs had been! But it was pure
cheating! Thus exciting myself with one
"but" after another, I finally worked my
self into such a state of deadly anger that
I could no longer contain myself, aud
jumping to my desk wrote to Bontemps as
Bib If you had given the 50,000 francs in chari
ty anooymously I should have had nothing but
compliment for you. But in takiug credit to
yourself for a chanty which has cost yon nothing
you have done a contemptible thing. Unless to
day you do not send me a receipt for a second
50,000 francs, jrivMi by yon this time to the poor
of Paris, you shall find the whole story of our lit
tle transaction in to-morrow's paper.
Earok vz Tuchorie&
Bontemps replied with these words:
Sm If you tell the story I shall le forced to
name the ludy. Bontemps.
To this I responded by a definite dis
patch: Sib If you name the lady I shall go to-morrow
afternoon to your office, pull you out of it by the
ears and box them for you before all your clerks.

The week after the countess' adventure
she left for Italy. At the end of a month I
received her fathers check for 50,000
francs, accompanied by vague expressions
of thanks, which showed that he was igno
rant under what circumstances my ser
vices had been rendered to her. I thought
no more of my young Italian friends until
one day I received a letter bordered with
black, in which tlie afflicted husband in
formed me that he had had the unhappi
ness to lose his wife under the most tragic
circumstances. After their departure from
Paris she had fallen iuto a melancholy, the
more inexplicable as it had lwen she who
had desired to return to Italy. To the
most afiectionnte inquiries she remained
deaf, and though from time to time she
seemed to make an effort to throw off her
somber apathy, and would be for a day or
so charming and graceful as before, she
soon fell back into her former state.
At last, during an excursion to Capri,
after a breakfast during which she had
rallied from her torpor, a promenade
brought them to the cliffs. She began to
walk toward the rocks so fast that they
could scarcely follow her. They called her
back, but in vain. Her silhouette stood
out against the blue sky as if she had been
a spirit, and she seemed ready to fly away.
All at once her light dress disappeared.
They rushed forward, but when they
reached the spot where she had been last
seen the cliffs were deserted and the sea
murmured in silence, beating against the
reefe. That evening the waves brought
her to the beach. She seemed to be asleep
ana smiled with a calm face, as in the days
when she bad been happy
The letter fell from my hands. I saw
again the young woman with her beauti
ful, supplicating eyea and her trembling
lips; my heart ached for her, and a tear of
pity and regret stole down my check.
