A WOULD BE
COUNTESS I
C rt y John Winthrup Green.
SIION I reached Leghorn, I
found myself in the company
of two people I had heard of
several times beforo In Italy.
They were Jailles Salinders, widow
er, and1(1 his daughter I3ileene of Aier
Iea. IHe ws n inan11 of sixty anid a
half invalid, iind she was a girl of twen
ty who had Zill overwhelming destro to
become anl Italian countess. 'Mr. Sn,4un
ders vas I franllk, blunt Spoken 1111111. 1
hadn't known im l an hour when I
lnev ill his troules. IHe had amassed
wealth, an1dI h. loved his daughter, but
h1e hadl no uso for ia son-iii-law not born1
in Americn.
"I don't know what on earth possess
(s the girl," h1e said, wheIn referring to
Eileene', wh111o had bell plailu Ellen be
fore the steamer left New York. "Sil's
Just gonio ild ol the title busluess. At
home sie'd havo been satistled with nt
colonel, i judge or anll honorable, but
nlow she decliri that nothing less than
beling a countess will fill the )ill. It
Seems ats if all tho counts in Italy had
heard of her desires and tile size of ily
bank elicccount, anid they havo lilng On
our l('Os by tihe dozen. It's no use for
111 to talk to the girl. Sho gets hloity
tolty the minute we start to argue,
and If I don't en1ve in to her She sulks
for a week. Do you know anything
about Italian counts?"
"Very little," I replied.
"As near ais I (nll find out they aro
a mighty poor lot, take 'em u. tiley

his title nid eastles andi(1 allestor1 illto
my ears till I wnilit to kick 11111. I
want you to find out If lie Is a real
coilnt."
It was a matter of little trouble to
discover that Count l'ndova h1adI( a right
to his title, but it also em11110 to light
tlat he0 was almost sixty yeals Old,
poor as a church moliso and 1d ieen

enough to guess tillit 11e wns after a

Its over the afl'alr. It would not have
taken some fathers two minutes to end
it, but lhe was tiI 1111iirbid, and his
strength of character was gone for the I
time. We sit talking for an hour and
then went up1) stairs and Joined the I
couple Oil the balcOly. The daughter
received us in it chilly fashion, but the
count had been1l drinking and was good
natured and voluble. I had Insulted
him, but I wis ia Compatriot of the

cony, an1(d lie vould take advaltage of
the oceasion to say that in seeking the
hand of the fair guir before hinm lie was
inetted by love 1110110. Ile was forty
Ilve years old and lonely. Ile wainted
to love and be loved. Money to liin
was as to the cobblestones iII tile

Lombardy mnd lin Umibria. Ile ha1d
cnstles in Tusnny, Naples and Sicily.
lie had gold miltes II the Alps, silver
minnesi in the Carnies and lead milllies
in the Apeniines. And as to hi1 social
standing, who could desire more thani
to he the confidant of the ruler of the
lald?
The old couit was a sleek, sliek liar,
and it was entertaining to hear him
talk, but at the saie time on1e could
not help but pity (ho father and feel
provokedtl at he duighter. The aged
lover was still exploiting wieni lhe sud
denly pitched forward out of his Chanir.
The girl screamed out aid ran away to
her roomI, and I VaS for bringing a doc
tor its quick as possible when Saiun
ders protested:
"Ihlid on at bit. The old vngnbond
has only fainted away. Let's see what
lie is made of."
We went to work, and the results
were stratge elough. I brought soap
and vater from my room, and the tirst
thing we took otY was a fakse brow.
We got enough eiamel ol his face to
reveal a score of wrinkles, and it was
discovered that every tooth in his head
was false. Under his wig was n. shiny
pate, ald his hackbone was stlieneld
with it corset. I belleve that it was the
tightness of the corset had cauised
his faint. Tlie was something stilt to
come. 11s right leg was supported (it
the knee with a brace, and a inose
which had been broken was neatly
trimmed with wax. WV'hien we had
taken the old fellow all to piees, ie
was 11 aueer siglt to look at, and It was
hlard to tell whither the heap oni the
chair or the lieup oni the iloor wais
Counit I':tdova. 1Ibe had( partly revivedl

away like nii old lien.
"And11 ths," gru nnied Snunders as lie
poinited to the heaip on) the chanir-"'this
wvas to be my son-in-law! This was
wvhat miy datughiter wa':s to marry in or
dler to be called a countess; I want
her here."
ie wits back withI her In a moment.
I lifted thle counit to a it ltinig poisitioni,
and lhe was cliatteing of love and 22ns
tIcs as (lie girl got sight of him.
"What have you done'?" shrieked the
daughter as she turned from the grisly
spe1cIacle to us8.
"We've simpl~ly taken him apart!" re
plied the fatlier, "and1( the best part of
him i is on thle cliiiir there."
Whien the would be counltess had fled,
we sent for help to get Count Padova
