"You've probably grown to prefer
French partners," he replied, piqued
at the reflection on his dancing.
"From all I hear." she retorted, "you
have little right to reproach me on
that score. You dance a good oeal at
Maxim's, don't you?"
"Now and then," he admitted.
"And with what sort of partners. I
wonder?'' she scoffed, a touch of scorn
in her sweet voice.
"With polite ones," said Danllo
She winced ever so little at the re
proof and went on.
"I suppose you dance hotter with
them than with me."
"Possibly," he agreed. "You see. I,
too, may prefer French partners."
She raised her great dark eyes ;o

"Do you?" she asked, almost In a
The distant orchestra had been play
ing again, this time not a native air,
but a dreamy, Infinitely sweet Vien
nese waltz. The opening notes of the
haunting melody, though softened by
distance, were wafted none the less
distinctly to the listening couple.
Again their eyes met. With a mutual
Impulse they drew toward each other.
Then began a dance as different from
the stlflly conventional ballroom waltz
as moonlight differs from a gasoline
tlare. With more than a hint of tho
free, niarvelously graceful poses of
Slavonic dancers, Danllo and Soniiv be
gun their wondrous waltz.
Throwing herself back Into tic
strength of his circling embrace, the
girl's outstretched arms swoyed like
wind blown lilies in rhythm with the
music, her light step scarcely touching
earth as the prince guided her through
the mazes of the dance.
It was a strange, dexterous blend of
east and west, of lissom oriental pos
turing and of gliding, modern waltz
stops the very poetry of motion. Nor
from the tirst note until the last strain
of music died away did either dancer's
eyes leave the other's.
Love, eager and eternal, was in the
gaze of each. Eyo said openly to eye

music was hushed. Danllo ami Konht
started, amazed, as though from some
vision of paradise. The widow, fearful
lest by Impulsive word abo might
wreck her plan of bringing Danllo to
her feet, darted breathlessly nway to
welcome a new group of guests. The
prince, left alone, stare4 after her, open
mouthed. A clapping of applauding
bands aroused him.
"Bravo, bravo, my dear prince!"
wheezed the ambassador, toddling for
ward. "What a delightful little dance!

The old bore's feeble jest brought
Danllo quickly back to earth and to a
sense of everyday surroundings.
"Were you looking for me?" he asked,
none too civilly.
"Only to seo If you had succeeded
yet In finding who the lady Is with
whom De Jolidoa I? In love. She must
be made to win him away from any
Ideas of marrying the widow."
"To biases with that and all the rest
of your silly plans!" shouted Danllo.
"Don't worry any more about the
widow. It's no use, I tell you. She Is
going to marry a Frenchman lu spite
of us all! And," be went on bitterly,
goaded by the ekagrlo and abject dis
appointment In PopofiF's face, "I'm go

"Uolng to marry a Frenchman. In

dor. "Preposterous! I'll find a way
of stopping It! And It Is De Jolldon

"What's that to me? I don't know

But Popoff waited to hear no more.

I have found atriad and tested cure for Rheu
matism! Not? remedy that will straighten the
distorted limbs of chronic cripples, nor turn boar
growth* back to flesh again. That is Impossible.
But I can now surely kill the pains and pangs of
this deplorable disease.
In Germany?with a Chemist In tho City of
Darmstadt? I found the last Ingredient with
WMch Dr. Snoop's Rheumatlo Remedy was made
a perfected, dependable prescription. Without
that last Ingredient. I successfully treated many,
many cases of Rheumatism; but now, at last. It uni
formly cures all curable cases of this heretofore
much druadod disease. Thote sand-like granular
wastes, found in Rheumatic Blood, seem to dissolve
and pass away under the action of this remedy as
freely as does sugar when added to pure water.
And then, when dissolved, these poisonous wastes
freely pass from the system, and the causo of
Rheumatism is gone forever. There is now no
real need?no actual excuse to suffer longer with
out help. We sell, and la confidence recommend
