my escort, a we passed between two

I waa so angry I could have struck

In my childhood, and mado miserable
for days thereby, and Mary Jetiner In
sists that It la emphatically not what
the poets call "auburn." That horrid
little Mr. Bpratt, too, who was so smit

pose American glrln to be so shallow
and foolish as to accept tbeao half

loathed and hated him thon more than
I had ever hated anybody before.
However, being a Frenchmen, hf
bad the perspicacity to read my emo

"Forgive me If I offended. Made

Then, too, I was faint from the long

serenely unconscious cf the disaster,
carrying my fSOO and the key to the
vault which held my I'anauia bonds!
Suddenly the murmur of a thousand
subdued voices broke upon my ears,
and a grateful coolness relieved my
tired eye. We were within the Ab

'What do you want a pawnbroker
