that Joan should try Mr. Iavi. who

They had not even beard blin speak,

"Then I'll get out of the auhwaj

"You were annoyed." said Joan aa

"You did seiiu in be Interested"
hut how do you know he wu a floor

"Most of these people were store

'I guess you're right." agreed Mr.

Joan did not let .Mr. I'avis huii

there, with perfect satisfaction tu
both, the reason for her lippareut

Maud and Margaret.
'Hue thing he did say," admitted
Joan, "that ' I wasn't iiuitt sure of.
That was that I would meet the man
I could really care for."
She told the whole story to Maud

ef Tart, they usually pause for a
moment as they paaa a modest head
atone bewrlng the alngle word "Pam
ela," Particularly since those which
surround It are literally covered with
facts and figures concerning the his
tory of the persona who lie hurled
there.
"Who waa Pamela" ask the tourist,
turning Inquiringly to the guide. And
that personage merely shrugs hi
shoulder, smile and repll!: "That,
monsieur, 1 what the world would

"Pamela," continue the guide, with
that quick grasp of historical !(
which la common to those who direct

the Puke of Orleans, liolilen haired, i
blue-eyed. veritable sprite, the little j
girl won nil hearts, in spite of the fact ;
that there waa very evidently a dark
mystery about her origin. There were
some at court who shook their heads
and shrugged their shoulders mean
ingly when, as she grew up, the girl
called 'Pamela begun to inuue con
quests which were more and more
widespread. Hut the secrecy which
veiled her birth did not affect her
popularity In the slightest. She was
the Inspiration of countless poets, the
cause of scores of duels and when her
heart was finally won by the Irish
Lord l:dwurd Pit lent Id. "on of the
Duke of I,elnsler, there were many
who left Purls because they could not
bear to see her married to another.
"The nnnotincment of her approach
ing marriage to Ixird Ildwurd brought
from Iondon the same question which
Purls had been asking for muny years:
'Who Is Pamela r and In the marriage
contract, still to be seen nt Tourniiy,
the bride Is described as 'Stephanie
Curoline Anne Simms,' known as
'Pamelii,' native of London, daughter
of William P.erkele and Mury Slinma.'
"Hut this does not, hy any means
dispel the mystery surrounding thla

governess of the household of the IMie

"I'.ut no matter. These are only
rumors reports, founded only on gos

treme about the origin of the beautiful
'Pamela,' Is only too explicit iih to her
adventures: after her marriage. Lord
Kdward Pitz (ierahl been me prominent
in tristi politics um, like sir linger
Casement more than a century later,
decided to cast his lot with the French
against Kngland. Accordingly, he
crossed the channel and urranged for

of a thousand pounds upon his head.
Those who were searching for him
kept a close watch ujMin his wife and
Ixird Kdward was finally captured In
the apartments of the lovely 'Pamela,'
who sold her Jewels and everything shq
possessed In a vain attempt to bribe
his Jailers. The Irish lord lived only a
short time afterward, dying as a re
sult of wounds which he received when
he was enptured. and 'Pamela' re
turned to Paris where she lived unnl
her death at the age of fifty-seven.
