or allowing three days to elapse after
their introduction to Hiss Carewe be
fore they "paid their respects at the
house but, bo that as it may, the dic
tator was now safely under way down
the Rouen river, and Mrs. Tanberry
reigned in his stead. Thus, at about 8
o'clock that evening, the two ladies sat
in the library engaged in conversation,
though, for the sake of accuracy, it
should be said that Mrs. Tanberry was
engaged in conversation, Miss Betty in
giving ear, when their attention was
arrested by sounds of a somewhat mu
slcal nature from the lawn, which
sounds were immediately identified as
emanating from a flute and violin.
Mrs. Tanberry bounded across the
room like a public building caught by
a cyclone, and, dashing at the candles,
-Blow 'em out, blow 'em out!" she ex
claimed, suiting the action to the word
a fluste'- of excitement.
"Why?" asked Miss Carewe, startled,
as she rose to her feet. The candles
were out before the question.
"Why!" repeated the merrj*, husky
voice in the darkness. "My goodness,
child precious, those vagabonds are
here! To think of your never having
been serenaded before!"
She drew the girl to the window and
pointed to a group of dim figures near
the lilac bushes. "The dear, delightful
vagabonds!" she chuckled. "I knew
they'd come! It's the beautiful Tap
pmgham Marsh with his fiddle and
young Jeff Bareaud with his flute and
'Gene Madrillon and little Frank Chen
oweth and thin Will Cummings to sing.
Hark to the rascals!"
It is perfectly truthful to say that
the violin and flute executed the pre
lude, and then the trio sounded full on
the evening air, the more effective
chords obligingly drawn out as long as
the breath in the singers could hold
them in order to allow the two fair
auditors complete benefit of the har
mony. They sang "The Harp That
Once Through Tara's Halls" and fol
lowed it with "Long, Long Ago.*'
"That" Mrs. Tanberry whispered be
tween stifled gusts of almost uncon
trollable laughter, "is meant for just
"Tell me the tales that to me were
so dear," entreated the trio.
"I told 'em plenty," gurgled the en
livening widow, "and I expect between
us we can get up some more."
"Now you are come my grief is re
moved," they sang.
"They mean your father is on his
way to St. Louis," remarked Mrs. Tan
berry. *'Let me forg-et that so long you have
Let me believe that you love as you loved
"Applaud, applaud!" whispered Mrs.
Tanberry, encouraging the minstrels
by a hearty clapping of hands.
Then the candles were relit and the
lerenaders invited within. Nelson came
bearing cake and wine, and the house
was made merry. Presently the romp,
Virginia Bareaud, making her appear
ance on the arm of 3enera Trumble,
Mrs. Tanberry led them all in a hearty
game of blind man's buff, followed by
as hearty a dancing of Dan Tucker.
After that, a quadrille being proposed,
Mrs. Tanberry suggested that Jeffer
son should run home and bring Fan
chon for the fourth lady. However,
Virginia explained that she had en
deavored to persuade both her sister
and Mr. Gray to accompany the gener
al and herself, but that Mr. Gray had
complained of indisposition, having suf
fered greatly from headache on ac
count of inhaling so much smoke at
the warehouse fire, and, of course, Fan
fhon would not leave him. (Miss Ca
rewe permitted herself the slightest
hrug of the shoulders.)
So they danced the quadrille with
Jefferson at the piano and Mr. Marsh
performing in the character of a lady,
a proceeding most unacceptable to the
general, whom Mrs. Tanberry forced to
be his partner. And thus the evening
passed gayly away. Tappingham
Marsh spoke the truth, indeed, when
he exclaimed in parting, "Oh, rare Mrs.

an odor of lateness, and nothing mov

artist's cunning touch the instrument
was both the accompaniment and the
song, and Miss Betty, at first taking
the music to be a wandering thread in

the fabric of her own bright dreams,
drifted gradually to consciousness to
find herself smiling. Her eyes opened
wide, but half closed again with the
ineffable sweetness of the sound.
Then a voice was heard, eerily low,
yet gallant and clear, a vibrant bari
tone, singing to the guitar:
"My lady's hair.
That dark delight,
Is both as ia:
And dusk as night.
I know some lovelorn hearts that beat
In. time to moonbeam twinklings fleet,
That dance and glance like jewels there,
Emblazoning the raven hair.
"Ah, ra\en hair,
So dark and bright!
What love lies there
Enmeshed tonight?
I know some sghing lads that say
Their hearts were snared and torn away,
And now as pearls one fate they share
Entangled in the raven hair.
"Ah, raven hair,
From such a plight
Cou'd you not spare
One acolyte?
I know a broken heart that went
To serve you but as ornament.
Alas, a ruby now you wear,
Ensanguining the raven hair!"
The song aad grown fainter and
fainter, the singer moving away as he
sang, and the last lines were almost in
audible in the distance. The guitar
could be heard for a moment or two
more, then silence came again. It was
broken by a rustling in the room next
to Miss Betty's, and Mrs. Tanberry
called softly through the open door
"Princess, are you awake? Did you
hear that serenade?"
After a pause the answer came hesi
tatingly in a small, faltering voice:
"Yesif it was one. I thought perhaps
he was only singing as he passed along
the street."
"Aha!" ejaculated Mrs. Tanberry
abruptly, as though she had made an
unexpected discovery. "You knew bet
ter, and this was a serenade that you
did not laugh at. Beautiful, I wouldn't
let it go any further, even while your
father is gone. Something might occur
that would bring him home without
warning. Such things have happened.
Tom Vanrevel ought to be kept far
away from this house."
"Oh, it was not he," returned Miss
Betty quickly. "It was Mr. Gray. Did
not you"
"My dear." interrupted the other.
"Crailey Gray's specialty is talking.
Most of the vagabonds can sing and
play a bit, and so can Crailey, partic
ularly when he's had a few bowls of
punch, but when Tom Vanrevel touches
the guitar and lifts up his voice to sing
there isn't an angel in heaven that
wouldn't quit the place and come to
hear him! Crailey wrote those words
to Virginia Bareaud. (Her hair is even
darker than yours, you know.) That
was when he was being engaged to her,
and Tom must have set the music to
'em lately and now comes here to sing
'em to you, and well enough they fit
you. But you must keep him away,
Nevertheless Betty knew the voice
was not that which had bid her look to
the stars, and she rjmained convinced
that it belonged to Mr. Crailey Gray,
who had been too ill a few hours earlier
to leave the Bareaud house, and now.
with Fanchon's kisses on his lips, came

If there was one person in the world
whom Miss Betty held in bitter con
tempt and scorn, it was the owner of
that voice and that guitar.
^ORE than three gentlemen of
Rouen wore their hearts in
their eyes for any fool to gaze
upon, but three was the num
ber of those who told their love before
the end of the first week of Mr. Ca
rewe's absence, and told it In spite of
Mrs. Tauberry's utmost effort to pre
serve, at all times, a conjunction be
tween herself and Miss Betty.
Miss Carewe honored each of the lorn
three with a few minutes of gravity^
but the gentle refusal prevented never
a swain from being as truly her follow
er as before, not that she resorted to
the poor device of half dismissal, the
everyday method of the schoolgirl flirt,
who thus keeps the lads in dalliance, but
because, even for the rejected, it was a
delight to be near her. For that matter,
it is said that no one ever had enough
of the mere looking at her. Also, her
talk was enlivening even to the lively,
being spiced with surprising turns and
amiably seasoned with the art of badi
nage. To use the phrase of the time,
she possessed the accomplishments, an
antiquated charm now on the point of
disappearing, so carefully has it been
snubbed under whenever exhibited.
She sketched magnificently. This is
the very strongest support for the as
sertion: Frank Chenoweth and Tap
pingham Marsh agreed, with tears of
enthusiasm, that "magnificently" was
the only word. They came to this con
clusion as they sat together at the end
of a long dinner, at which very little
had been eaten, after a day's picnic by
the river. Miss Carewe had been of
their company, and Tappingham and
Chenoweth found each his opportunity
in the afternoon. The party was small
and no one had been able to effect a
total unconsciousness of the maueuvers
of the two gentlemen. Even Fanchon
Bareaud comprehended lauguidly,
though she was more blurred than ever,
and her faraway eyes belied the me
chanical vivacity of her manner, for
Crailey was thirty miles down the river
with a fishing rod neatly packed in a
leather case.
Mr. Vanrevel, of course, was not in
vited. No one would have thought of
asking him to join a small party of
which Robert Carewe's daughter was
to be a member, but it was happiness
enough for Tom that night to lie hid
den in the shrubbery looking up at the
stars between the leaves while he lis
tened to her harp and borne through the
open window on enchanted airs the
voice of Elizabeth Carewe singing
"Robin Adair."
It was now that the town indulged
its liveliest spirit. Never an evening
lacked its junketing, while the happy
folk of Rouen set the early summer
to music. Serenade, dance and song
for them, the light hearts, young and
old making gay together. It was all
laughter, either in sunshine or by can
dlelight, undisturbed by the far thun
der below the southern horizon, where
Zachary Taylor had pitched his tent,
upon the Rio Grande.
One fair evening soon after that ex
cursion which had proved fatal to the
hopes of the handsome Tappingham
and of the youthful Chenoweth it was
the privilege of Mr. Thomas Vanrevel
to assist Mi* Carewe and her chaperon
from their carriage as they drove up to
a dance at the Bareauds'. This good
fortune fell only to great deserving, for
he had spent an hour lurking outside
the house in the hope of performing
such offices for them.
Heaven was in his soul, and the
breath departed out of his body when,
after a moment of hesitation, Miss
Betty's little lace gauntleted glove was
placed in his hand, and her white slip
per shimmered out from the lilac
flounces of her dress to fall like a ben
ediction, he thought, on each, of the
carriage steps.
It was the age of garlands. They
wreathed the muses, the seasons and
their speech, so the women wore
wreaths in their hair, and Miss Betty's
that night was of marguerites. "Read
your fortune in them all," whispered
Tom's heart, "and of whomsoever you
wish to learn every petal will say, 'He
loves you none declare he loves you
She bowed slightly, but did not speak
to him, which was perhaps a better re
ception than that accorded the young
man by her companion. "Oh, it's you,
is it?" was Mrs. Tanberry's courteous
observation as she canted the vehicle
in her descent. She looked sharply at
Miss Betty, and even the small glow of
the carriage lamps showed that the girl's
cheeks had flushed very red. Mr. Van
revel, on the contrary, was pale.
They stood for a moment in awk
ward silence, while from the lighted
house where the flying figures circled
came the waltz, "I Dreamt That I
Dwe-helt In Ma-har-ble Halls." Tom's
own dreams were much wilder than
the gypsy girl's, he knew that, yet he
spoke out bravely:
"Will you dance the first two with
Miss Betty bit her lip, frowned, turn
ed away and, vouchsafing no reply,
walked toward the house with her
eyes fixed on the ground but just as
they reached the door she flashed over
him a look that scorched him from
head to foot and sent his spirits down
through the soles of his boots to exca
vate a grotto in the depths of the
earth, so charged it was with wrathful
pity and contempt.
"Yes!" she said abruptly and follow
ed Mrs. Tanberry to the dressing room.
The elder lady shook her head sol
emnly as she emerged from the enor
mous folds of a yellow silk cloak. "Ah,
princess," she said, touching the girl's
shoulder with her jeweled hand, "I told
you I was a very foolish woman, and I
am, but not so foolish as to offer ad
vice often. Yet, believe me, it won't
do. I think that is one of the greatest
young men I ever knew, and it's a pity
but it won't do."
Miss Betty kept her face away from
he:' guardian for a moment. No incon
siderable amount of information had
drifted to her from here and there re
garding the career of Crailey Gray,
and she thought how intensely she
would have hated any person in the
world except Mrs. Tanberry for pre
suming to think she needed to be warn
ed against the charms of this serenad
ing lady killer who was the property
of another girl.
"You must keep him away. I think,"
ventured Mrs. Tanberry gently.
At that Betty turned to her and said
"I will. After this please let us nev
er speak of him again."
A slow nod of the other's turbaned
head indicated the gravest acquies
cence. She saw that her companion's
cheeks were still crimson. "I under
stand," said she.
A buzz of whispering, like a July bee
tle, followed Miss Carewe and her
partner about the room during the next
dance. How had Tom managed it?
Had her father never told her? Who
had dared to introduce them Fanchon
was the only one who knew, and as
she whirled by with Will Cummings
she raised her absent glance long
enough to give Tom an affectionate
and warning shake of the head.
Tom did not see this. Miss Carewe
did. Alas! She smiled upon him in
stantly and looked deep into his eyes.
It was the third time.
She was not afraid of this man flirt.
He was to be settled with once and
forever. She intended to avenge both
Fanchon and herself. Yet it is a haz
ardous game, this piercing of eye with
eye, because the point which seeks to
penetrate may soften and melt, leaving
one defenseless. For perhaps ten sec
onds that straight look lasted," while it
seemed to her that she read clear into
the soul of him and to behold it through
some befooling magic as strong, ten
der, wise and true as his outward ap
pearance would have made an innocent
stranger believe him, for he looked all
these things, she admitted that much,
and he had an air of distinction and
resource beyond, any she had ever
known even in the wild, scramble for
her kitten he had not lost it So for
ten seconds, which may be a long time,
she saw a man such as she had dream
ed, and she did not believe her sight,
because she had no desire to be as cred
ulous as the others, to be as easily
cheated as that poor Fanchon!
The luckless Tom found his own fpet

peared to himself wonderful and glori
fiedhe was waltzing with Miss Bettyl
He breathed the entrancing words to
himself over and over. It was true he
was waltzing with Miss Betty Carewe!
Her glove lay warm and light within
his own. His fingers clasped that in
effable lilac and white brocade waist.
Sometimes her hair came within an
inch of his cheek, and then he rose out
right from the hilltops and floated in a
golden mist. The glamour of which the
incroyable had planned to tell her some
day surrounded Tom, and it seemed to
him that the whole world was covered
with a beautiful light like a carpet,
which was but the radiance of this
adorable girl whom his gloves and
coat sleeve were permitted to touch.
When the music stopped they followed
in the train of other couples seeking the
coolness of out of doors for the inter
val, and Tom in his soul laughed at all
other men with illimitable condescen
"Stop here," she said as they reached
the open gate. He was walking out of
it, his head in the air and Miss Bet
ty on his arm. Apparently he would
have waiked straight across the state.
It was the happiest moment he had
ever known.
Handed One to Beveridge.
One day when Senator Beveridge
was in one of his most eloquent
flights old Senator Pettus of Alabama
got up and asked leave to interrupt.
"Does the senator from Indiana yield
to the senator from Alabama?" thund
ered the vice president. "Nothing,"
replied Beveridge, "affords or can
ever afford the senator from Indiana
more pleasure than to yield to the
distinguished and able senator from
Alabama, who never makes a speech
himself or interrupts the speech of
another without adorning it with a
brilliant radiance." Pettus stood
there with his jaws wagging with the
inevitable cud of tobacco until Bever
idge had finished the sentence and
then said, "Mr. President, I move we
adjourn." And they adjourned.
