'lir ""urtule, and, although thu
-'an. C'e '"-""irious, they were
shining; they would stay
one day, as they had eoue so far, and all
that day they vaciiered is the forest and
-it's the old ty they stayed all sum
mer. There Iteaie met Miss Helen, and
all that long summer taer played croquet,
explored the forest and sang songs to
getlxr, songs long since out of fashion.
Renie was not a painter, although a friend
of many sninU rs, but a student of philoso
phy. He had it pile of books with him and
read at times, but it was his vacation, and
his studies never interfered with Miss
Helen's plans r prevented him from being
always in attendance at any picnic, tea or
forest ramble. One evening we went into
the forest, a merry pack of us starting
early together and returning late in pairs,
and when we returned one couple was
missing, Miss l-Cendle and Renie.
Mrs. Kendle was very anxious, fearing
her daughter bad been lost and would be
devoured by ti e wild beasts. We tried to
console her, telling her that probably
Kenie would ste her safely borne, and that
the wild beasts of Fontaincbleau were
mostly rabbits and deer. BuOlrs. Kendie
refused to be comforted and s oa relief ex
pedition was organized. There were plenty
of volunteers, t ml as the nilit was lovely
many vohmte.-re,l iu couples. Hunting
horns and a drum were carried to wake
the forest ech x-s and torches to see the
"babes iu the woods" wben found. The
party did not go far. They had not started
off with serious intent only to pacify the
mother, and c intented themselves by ex
ploring the "brigands' cave," where some
were almost suothered by the smoke of
the torches, and came back singing in
chorus, almost forgetting why the torch
light procession had been organized. As
the returning explorers neared the village,
the lights of their torches fell upon, a cou
ple sitting on tie beuch just inside the for
"Hallo!" es claimed Leon, suddenly
changing the n te of the solo he was singing-
"Hallo, yourself!" answered Renie, "you
are making a g-eat deal of noise."
"But how did you get heref " asked Leon.
"Easy enough round the other way."
Leon began it, and we all burst into a
"What is the joke?" asked Renie.
"Joke! Suppose you and Miss Kendle
full into line with us and we will explain."
And the rna-ch continued, horns blow
ing, drums beat ing and all shouting at the
top of our voices, and so the successful res
cuing party ret irned with the lost one.
It was about Christmas when the Ken
dies gave a grimd dinner. Renie sat on
the left of Miss Helen and a stranger, a
young man whose looks I scarcely remem
ber, sat on her right. Of course Renie
monopolized Miss Kendle, The young
stranger tried t j join in the conversation,
but was not successful. 1 cannot say Re
nie was rude to the man, for be did not
seem even to ret ognize his existence.
"Don't you think it is outrageous?"
whispered Miss Tipman, my neighbor.
"Don't you I now? of course you do
everybody does except him"
At that moit ent Mrs. Kendlo gave the
signal for leavii g the table, and my ques
tion was left unanswered. We were al
lowed to smoke in the drawing room at
the Kendles, so we followed the ladies.
Miss Tipman ca itured Renie and insisted
on bis looking over the fa nily photograph
album with her. He did ii politely, but
his attention an 1 eyes would wander across
the room where Miss Kendle was talking
with the strangitr. But Miss Tipman kept
him at the album. What was she about?
I wondered; surely not trying to fascinate
Renie; she must well know any attempts
of that kind would be wasted. Besides,
Miss Tipman wu not a flirt; she was one
of those yes, I must say uncomfortable
women to have about. One of those wom
en who are always trying to "do their
duty." What was she up to now? Talk
ing loud enough for any one near to bear,
so there was no indiscretion in my listen
ing. "There, do you know her?"
"Yes," answered Renie, turning over the
page, anxious to finish the book.
"And do yon snow him?"
"Ho." Again he wonld turn the page,
but Miss Tipman put her hand upon his.
"But don't you recognize that picture?"
"Well, yes; it is of the man who sat next
to Miss Kendle I was introduced, but
forget his name."
"But don't you know who he is?"
"No, and what is more"
"Don't you know be is engaged to Miss
This time Renie turned the page without
any hindrance from his neighbor. He
closed th.e book, rose and laid it on the
table, tu tiled and wit hout a word to any
one left the room. Miss Tipman and I
looked at each ot ber for a few moments in
silence. I felt at if I must say something.
If she bad been a man I should have told
him he was a fir t class fool. As it was, I
simply remarket!, "You've done it!"
"1 thought it was right," she answered,
compressing ber lips disagreeably.
Renie went hotne and bad a brain fever,
and Miss Helen Kendle married tbe other
man. Why bad I not remembered all this
when my old frind asked about Madame,
who was Miss Kendle? What right had I
now, after my brutal manner of announc
ing Miss KendU's death, to criticise Miss
lie uie did not make me a long visit, but
at tbe door I agai n promised to find out "if
it was really true."
"She was a charming woman," he said
as w shook hanc s, and for the second time
I repeated, "A cl arming woman!"
"And he has never married?" asked
Pauline when 1 closed the door.
"And was she handsome?"
I hesitated, but why Bhould I not tell the
truth to Pauline? "No."
"And was the other as handsome as
"Oh, no, nothing like!"
"Bathe was tie richest?"
"Yes, I suppose he was."
I well knew Benie had only a modest
patrimony, while "the other" had houses
and binds and "a big business."
For awhile I worked in sileuce. Tauline's
eyes were very br tght, with a suspicion of
tears. I knew h r thoughts had wandered
from Renie to her soldier lad and the
baker's shop tha; was to be opened on his
return, where beiind the counter Pauline
was to reign supreme. ,
- At last Paul ne's thoughts returned
again to Renie, f r she said with an accent
of conviction in her voice: "How could she
have done it? I don't understand." thus
nnconscionsly boing what all "the old
set" had exclaim 1 many years ago.
I wrote to a friend as I had promised,
nud recerved tht reply expected "Mme.
who was Miss Helen Kendle, died
several years ag." This note I inclosed
to Renie, and ht. sends me a card in ac
knowledgment. On it was written:
"Thanks, my frif nd. for your note. I am
