It was followed speed ily by the appearanee of a company of mounted gallants in sueh splendid at tire that the peasants stopped in the dance to gaze open mouthed at the ap parition. The I'rlncess Margaret and her party were utmost equally amazed to behold such splendor Issuing from the forest. At the head of the troop, on a spirited white charger, rode a young man whose rich dress and knightly bearing proclaimed hlm to be a person of great consequence. Without further preliminary he rode directly to the side of the chatelaine of Ilourg. sprang from his horse, doffed his plumed hat and. bending a grace ful knee, requested her hospitality for himself and his men. "Sir. I am honored In the asking," she responded graciously, for she knew that her would be guest was l'hlllbert the Handsome, duke of Savoy. The duke and his gentlemen were presented to the princess, and the dance was resumed. From the first it was appareut to the entire company that the youug man whose beauty was the theme of every court in Furope had no eyes for the rustic festivity. " Margaret, too, her hostess dlscover i>d, had abandon ed her Interest iu the dance and wgjH had transferred It elsewhere. At last the lady of • i Ilourß made bold / 1 to rally the Itcau | J tlful widow ou 'I her listlessness.

"I only wish I were one of your good peasants so that 1 might engage In it myself." At this astonishing declaration the handsome young ruler of Savoy bowed low before the lovely widow and said, "Madame, I crave the honor of being your partner in the Faster egg con test of ltourg." A great bush fell on the pay and splendid company. Not a man or wo man among tbein all was so stupid as not to realize that I'hlllbert's words meant the proffer of his heart and hand. For a moment the fair Mar garet hesitated, and her cheeks Hushed charmingly. Then she accepted her bold young wooer's arm and permitted him to lead her to the field. "It Is but a harmless diversion." she protested laughingly. "I shall be cer tain to break more than one egg be fore I have accomplished it." "Break all of them if you will, ma dame, but do not break my heart," he returned presumptuously. She would not reassure him by any spoken word, and, amid the plaudits of the onlookers, they entered on the trial. The rrlncess Margaret's doleful pre diction was not fulfilled. At the end of the dance it was announced public ly that not a single egg had been bro ken. '•We have won, mfldame," said Phlll bert rapturously. "The Easter egg dance of Bourg has determined our fate. There is no appeal from its de cision." "I suppose yon are right," she ad mitted softly, "one cannot do violence to the traditions of Bourg." For four happy years this royal couple lived the Ideal wedded life, and then Margaret was again a widow. Thus she remained to the close of her long life. She was so capable and so highly esteemed that she was made regent of Holland. She was also a poet of no mean distinction and left enough Interesting letters to make two big volumes.

It Is perfectly elear, however, ttint the coot! people of ill*' e 11'1 V uiid die ayes knew all about It. The folk lore of that period makes frequent ref ere nee to the part played by the egg In Faster doings, and there have been handed down numerous entertaining stories about It. One of them tells how a very beautiful young woman secured a noble husband through its agency. Her name was Margaret, and she was a royal princess, the daughter of the Emperor Maximilian of Germany. She was born at Client In and. although that Is a long time ago, her fame as an attractive young person still survives. When one looks on her fair face as the old time painters havo depicted her It seems Incredible that she should have found It dltlicult to provide herself with a suitable hus band. Yet It happened so. When she was still an Infant Marga ret was betrothed to Charles VIII. of l-'rance. Of course the tiny princess had no opportunity to say nay. and she grew to maidenhood in the belief that her matrimonial affairs were all settled. Her royal lover proved faith less. The charms of Anne of Hrittany made hlm Indifferent to the fact that he had promised to become the son-in law of the German emperor, and he married her. Margaret was only elev en. altogether too young to lose her beauty sleep over the matter. Her fa ther was exceedingly wroth, but noth ing dreadful came of It. lie waited until his heiress was seventeen and married her to l>on Juan of Spain, son of Ferdinand and Isabella. Almost before Margaret had made ! her new husband's acquaintance, even | U'fore he had had an opportunity to Introduce his bride to the Spanish ! eourt. he fell sick and died. Under j the circumstances Margaret was not Inconsolable, but she waited another four years before she began to scan the matrimonial horizon In search of I No. 2. Her experience had taught her i one thing—ln future she purposed do i lng her own selecting, with no aid j from anybody except Providence. Finally, at the age of twenty-one, more beautiful than ever, the young widow put off her weeds and notified Providence that the game was on. In order that she might enlist the services of her patron saint she set out on a pilgrimage to a shrine In the south of France. That Providence was taking a lively interest in the business Is evi dent from the sequel. It was not even required of her that she should complete her pilgrimage. Midway of the Journey the princess and her party halted at the little vil lage of Hoitrg for a few days' rest. It was a charming spot In the monutaln region of the Cevennes, with great, dark forests on every side, i! It happened to be the Eastertide. On . j Easter Monday the chatelaine of the castle at which the princess was a guest proposed that a party should bo . made up to attend the village games. . Margaret accepted the proposition with enthusiasm. For a long time sho watched tho varying scene with the t liveliest Interest. The day was per fect. The air was soft and genial, and .

AWAKE, fond heart, and sing an Easter scngl ** To the sweet anthem of returning bird And swelling bud and pale ascending blade Add the last word. Drear was the winter and the waiting long. Heart, there were hours, indeed, thou wert afraid, So long the spring delayed. AWAKE, fond heart, and go thou forth and sing I ** Unite thy voice to all this music sweet Of opening leaf and busy, building wing And falling showers; The murmur soft of little lives newborn, The armies of the grass, the myriad feet Of marching flowers. SHUT in the winter's alabaster tomb, So white and still the sleeping summer lay That dead she seemed, And none might know how in her magic side Slept the young spring and moved and smiled and dreamed. Behold, she wakes again and, open eyed, Gazes, in wonder, round the leafy room At the young flowers. Upon this Easter day Awaken, too, my heart, open thine eyes, And from thy seeming death thou, too, arise. HOW softly blows the resurrection horn Across the meadows, over the far hills 1 In the soul's garden a new sweetness stirs. And the heart fills, And in and out the mind flow the soft airs. Awake, fond heart, and sing this Easter mom! In the year's resurrection do thy part. Awake, fond heart!

Barnabas Crane re moved Ills nold eyeglasses and peered nearsightedly over the lieails of his congregation. lie was a tail man with thin straw colored hair and mustache and mild bine eyes, which had innocently enough been the cause of disturbing the peace of mind of several of the ladies of his parish. Tile three ladies in question blushed and tingled with various degrees of delight when Mr. Crane gave out the following notice: "It is now the Ist of January, and, us Is customary at this season, 1 shall apitolnt three ladies of the parish to serve u[M>n the flower committee.

"The three members of the commit tee for this purpose are Miss Emily iiurtou. Miss Harriet Ames and Miss Lucy Grant." Mr. Crane resumed his eyeglasses and gave out the closing hymn. When the service was over the three newly appointed members of the flow er committee gravitated toward oue another as by common consent. All were flushed with excitement and perhaps disposed to be a trifle Jealous of the other, but save for rather criti cal surveys of one another's bonnets and gowns there was no outward Indi cation that personal feelings might dominate the faithful performance of their service on this Important com mittee. "Come over to my house tomorrow night," suggested Harriet Ames with Ler usual air of leadership. "Come over and stay to tea, and v.e will talk over the plans." Miss lturton and Miss Crant nodded assent, aud the three parted to meet again the following night around Miss Ames' tea table. When the dishes of pink tinted ham and light biscuit and damson preserves hail gone the rounds, and Miss Ames had i*>urcd great cups of fragrant tea. and when the delicious poundcake was still In anticipation, the committee got down to business. "Sow," said Harriet briskly, "we must decide what decorations we shall have and act accordingly. We want It to outshine anything that any other committee ever did!" "Yes, Indeed," murmured I.ucy mild ly- "Perhaps you've not a plan all laid out, Harriot; you're so forehanded," remarked Emily Burton, with a touch of asperity. "Well, 1 have." returned Miss Ames fr.inkly. "The fact is I laid It on a piece of pajvr last night. There's three places to plan for." "What are they if" <iuestioned Lucy mildly. "The hack of the chancel and the railing around the choir and the bap tisinal font." She paused and looked dcflantly at her colleagues. Lucy tlrant fluttered over her tea cup. "Ain't you forgotten something, Harriet'?" she asked nervously. "You've forgotten the minister's desk." said Emily bluntly. She stared at Harriet Ames with cold, gray eyes. I.ucy Grant flushed crimson and hur riedly helped herself to two slices of |Hiuiul cake. Miss Ames was not at all perturbed. "I knew yi.u and I.ucy would lie think ing of Mr. franc's desk," she said sar castically; "there wasn't any need for nie to remember that!

Now all was clear. As a member of the flower com mittee she would < nine forward at the last minute with her offering— Easter lilies were rare in Moutbank village. The same thought had taken root in the minds of Harriet Ames and Emily Burton. Secretly the three members of thej committee each tended a few care-1 fully nurtured pots of Easter lilies for the admiral minister's desk. During the long winter days that fol lowed each one dreamed of the tri umph of producing great pots of pure white blooms at the last moment. The friendship which bound the three spinsters together before the ad vent of the good looking bachelor min ister became more strained as each day passed by until open rupture was Im minent. Happily Easter sped on apace, and all too soon came the Saturday before the sacred day, to the real meaning of which neither of the three women had given much thought. Not once after that tea party at Har riet Ames' house was the subject of the minister's desk mentioned. They avoided it as by tacit agreement.

Fifteen minutes later three small | boys with as many (mall wagons cart ed pots of stately Easter lilies Into the church. Three Indignant spinsters gathered about the minister's desk.
