The Oiunor parly asliore was a jrraud
affair for the place and clime. Old
wines came lip from the bowels of the
fort. Captain Meroviuge spoke wittily
of the arts, of Paris, with an wiry
pointediiess of Cairo, and then passed
on with a fine enthusiasm to dwell ou
the twin services and their affection for
each other, while Francois, speaking
into a small, shell-like ear, dwelt at
length upon the sad beauty of the uU'ht,
ou music, on sontr, on—well, amatory
problems. His original desire to ingra
tiate himself into the good graces of
the English girl for a time had by the
conclusion of the evening merged into
a resolve to wlu her favor for always.
It matters not at all that a French
man's "always" is often bounded by
the day after tomorrow.
&
Let it be owned and at once that
Cordelia behaved outrageously. Colo
nel Lenuard did not appear to nolieo.
Pat Cannon, who spent the whole night
"The French arc in the bay," lie said.
aud part of the day in his shirt sleeves
working like a navvy with successive
gangs of men behind the northeast face
of the fortification, if he disapproved,
did so unobtrusively, and the French
commander beamed propitiously around
him. As for Francois, cold English
cannot convey his sentiments.
After dinner they went up to the
roof, and the young Frenchman mur?
mured in the moonlight of loneliness.
"Yes, I am very lonely—sometimes,
admitted Cordelia, with a little air of
sadness which seemed from the heart.
"Speak to me. Tell me of your lone
ly hours, mademoiselle. I cau feel for
3rou.
I also have been lonely."
Mademoiselle merely smiled divinely.
She knew better than to inflict her
thoughts on Francois. With a woman's
art she put the next question.
"How can you know? You have com
panions, friends"—
"Companions? What are they?" he
replied. "The soul is lonely and full of
longing until the happy hour arrives
when all the solitude is made up for by
the touch of that ope adorable sym
pathy a man has to dream of."
Cordelia gazed out across the shining
water to where the spars of the Loup
garou trembled in shadow on the tide.
"La recompense," she said in a low
tone. Then, shaking her head slowly,
she added, "But such meetings are
rare."
"Rare, yes"—he ventured to bend to
ward her—"but not unknown. Say to
me, I implore you, not unknown!"
Cordelia allowed him to meet a flying
glance from under her long lashes.
"The delight of such ,a meeting is en
hanced by its rarity," ho continued.
"Mademoiselle, have you never met
with one who could understand you?'
Cordelia's fair face looked pretermit
urally sad and wistful under the moon
as she said in a low voice:
"Have youV"
Francois afterward declared that ho
could have died of that charming whis
per.
"Tonight, mademoiselle!" he answer
ed rapturously.
And then—ah, evil fate!—it was time
to say good night aud depart in the
captain's gig. But even separation had
its alleviations. He paced the deck of
the Loup-garou during his watch and
saw the daylight grow into a pallid cir
cle through the porthole of his cabin
while lie still dwelt ecstatically not only
upon Miss Lennard's claims to admira
tion—her eyes, her hair, her ligure,
even her pretty, hesitating French, al
though it was the French of Montreux
and Brussels—but also upon the flatter
ing response his attentions had drawn
from her.
In the morning Merovinge took occa
sion to congratulate him on his suc
cess. "That appeared to go"—here Me
rovinge winked in a highly complimen
tary manner—"as the Americans say,
on vecls!"
Francois replied with happy self ap
preciation, adding a warm comment
upon Miss Lennard's attractions.
"She is beautiful? Ah. yes! Have I
not said that there are English women
—ah, the most bewitching?" The cap
tain sighed retrospectively. "I? Yes,
yes, I know it!"
But Francois had little interest to
squander upon Merovinge's past tri
umphs.
"The back of mademoiselle's neck,"
he went on, "white, innocent, exquisite
—one sees its counterpart only in a lit
tle child or in the picture of an angel."
Merovinge came back from his own
tender recollections with some dissatis
faction.
"Indeed?" ho said rather coldly. He
had not observed the back of made
moiselle's neck, but he was prepared
to take its charms on trust. Meantime
Francois could have all the leave he'
found necessary to fulfill the duty,
Franco required of him.
The party from the fort that came
aboard the Loup-garou for dejeuner in
cluded Colonel Lenuard, his daughter
and a pink faced young subaltern of
marines.
Cordelia was handed up the gangway
by the incomparable lieutenant. He
paraded her about the deck. He spoke
to her of his hopes and his struggles,
of his past, of his future, of his ambi
tions. He was plainly making rapid
headway in the girl's heart, judging
from the absorbed attention with
which she listened to ills rhapsodies.
She plied him with such apt and intelli
gent questions. She realized, with a
fullness the affections alone can teach,
how great wore the dangers he must
face in his career, the storms, the fe
vers and the elimales.
lie perceived himself to be the envy
of lils comrades iu arms and glowed
with a racial exaltation of spirit. When
.Pat Cannon came aboard later, smart,
&
Mr
Wf ^:}, -r.'rj
traight, alert, us usual, witn many
apologies for the delay duty had forced
upon him, Francois received him with
effusion. This kindly feeling was yet
further increased when he observed
Cannon go up to Miss Lennard and say
a few words, to which the young lads
gave a short answer and promptly
turned her back upon him.
"You can fetch your adorer and his
monkey gang along any time tomor
row," Pat Cannon had said, rather
sourly, it must be admitted, for Cor
delia's behavior toward the dapper
French lieutenant pleased him little.
She was playing a part perhaps, but it
appeared to him that she entered into
the fnu, if fun it was, with a quite un
called for amount of zest and enjoy
ment. Cordelia only replied, "Very
well." in her coldest tones and took up
the running with Francois immedi
ately.
O
Now, Francois had had his own prep
arations to make for the reception of
his fair guest. Early in the morniug
after shaviug he had occupied himself
in his cabin by taking down the photo
graphs of the girls of yesterday, his
l'ormor conquests, aud hiding them in
a book. It was not desirable that the
present and the past should meet. So
Coralie of the Opera Comique and
haudsome Marie Girrol of Marseilles,
the girl who lives beyoud the market,
were deposed.
Now, it must be understood that
Francois in the depth of his conscious
ness recognized the fleeting character
ol' his own regard for the English girl,
yet he desired above all things on earth
to leave upon her memory a tcuder
recollcction of himself that should nev
er be effaced. In the future lie would
dwell with a delicate pleasure upon the
know ledge that faraway Cordelia Len
nard still sighed for his loss, still treas
ured his words and looks in her heart.
Even wheu married to some dull,
coarse grained British husband she
would turn back through the years
with appreciation of the superb young
lover of long ago.
Filled with those praiseworthy inten
tions, he fluttered about her, endeavor
ing to deepen the impression he believ
ed himself to have already made. The
wind had blown the soft chestnut curls
about her brow, her ears, her neck, and
she seemed more than ever adorable.
He took her below to show her where
her lieutenant lived. He fancied she
would always picture him there, his
hair wet with the spindrift of the
stormy seas and other heroic concomi
tants. She would make that cabin the
home of her romance. As a matter of
fact, she didn't. She merely thought
it stuffy, but was too civil (aud inter
ested) to say so.
By an unfortunate mistake she put
her hand upon a book that lay upon
the table, the book into which Fran
cois had put the j'esterdays. A yester
day fell out. It was a striking photo
graph of Coralie of the Opera. Fran
cois picked it up skillfully.
"My beloved mother," he said, "be
fore her marriage to the hero, my fa
ther."
"Which?" asked Cordelia innocently
She had caught sight of more than
one.
"The others are my sisters." he has
tened to add.
"You have a great many sisters," she
remarked, with interest. "How many?"
Now, Francois had no means of
knowing the exact number of yester
days which Miss Lennard's sweet blue
eyes had seen, so ho left an easy mar
gin and answered:
"Fourteen!"
"Really? Fourteen? Do let me see
them."
"Spare me ycur eyes, your"—
"Where are you. Cordelia? Time's
up!" The colonel's big voice roiled
through the open door from the mess
room.
"You are coming ushore tomorrow?"
asked Cordelia timidly. "We—we could
go over the fort. Your friends might
like to come also?"
Francois was transported with his
luck.
"Alas, dear mademoiselle." he re
plied, "with what joy and dispatch
would I come! To see the fort nat
urally affords me precisely the excuse
I need to bring some of my comrades
with me, but that favor is denied to us
by your jealous country."
Cordelia stood for a second thought
ful.
"Should you really care to come?'
she asked demurely at length.
The ardor of his reply left nothing tc
be desired.
"Then I think I can manage it. My
father always allows me to do as
like. Why should we not go over tlu
fort?" She looked inquiringly at him.
"But Captain Cannon what of
him?" Soino instinct told Francois
that Cannon's red head held the acuteat
material available at Fort Teheu.
Cordelia opened her eyes with a cer
tain dignilied astonishment.
"Are you not aware that my father is
the commandant
Had Francois belonged to any other
race ho must have betrayed his real
meaning by seme useless denial. As it
was, ho tried to touch the Augers that
somehow eluded his. while lie replied
with a line theatrical earnestness:
"I eomp:\«hcnd that, dear mademoi
selle. but were I M. le Capitaine Can
non 1 should use every artilice to keep
other men from worshiping at the
shrine of mv own devotion."
Cordelia colored.
"My father is calling me." she an
swered coldly.
lie followed her on deck, trying (o
soften her evident annoyance, but it
was only at the last moment, when she
was already on the gangway, that he
ventured to wV.sper. "A domain?" but
Cordelia gave no ri?ii.
Thus r.iiotlK day passed. The Re

desire ou her part to veil lier real mo
tive, which was no doubt to secure a
tete-a-tete.
A couple of hours later on invitation
to luncheon arrived from Colonel Len
nard for Captain Merovinge and the
officers of the Loup-garou. Francois
was naturally of the party that went
ashore in response. He had no nufti
ner of doubt that the festivity had
been worked by Cordelia and was in
some shape an answer to his impas
sioned appeal.
Tlic WroiiK Lcpr,
There was an eminent sergeant at law
some years ago who had a cork leg
that was a triumph of artistic decep
tion. None but his intimates knew for
certain which was the real and which
was the sham limb. A wild young wag
of the "outer bar," who knew the ser
geant pretty well, once thought to util
ize this knowledge of the sergeant's se
cret to take in a green, newly fledged
young barrister. The sergeant was ad
dressing a special jury at Westminster
In his usual earnest and vehement
style, and the wag whispered to his
ueighbor:
'You see how hot old Buzfuz is over
his case. Now, I'll bet you a sovereign
I'll run this pin into his leg up to the
head and he'll never notice it, he's so
absorbed in his speech. He's a most ex
traordinary man in that way."
This was more than tiie greenhorn
could swallow, so ho took the bet. The
wag took a large pin from his waist
coat and, leaning forward, drove it up
to the head In the sergeant's leg. A yell
that froze the blood of all who heard it,
that made the hair of the jury stand on
end and the judge's wig almost fall off,
rang through the court.
By Jove, It's the wrong log! I've lost
my money," cxelaimcd the dismayed
and conscience stricken wag, quite re
gardless of the pain he had inflicted up
on the learned sergeant.—London An

To JndRc the Age of Incc.
In fixing the approximate date of
any given piece of lace it is well to re
member that machiue made thread was
not used till after the beginning of the
eighteenth century. Before that time
the threads ran in lengths of about
twenty inches, for the worker could
stretch no farther than her distaff and
had to break off aud join agaiu, so that
after unraveling some twenty-live
inches of thread no joint is found the
lace is surely after the introduction of
machine made thread. The "bride's
ornee" alone are enough to go by. In
the fifteenth century the bar had only
a knot or a dot as ornament, in the
sixteenth a double or siugle loop aud
in the seventeenth a star. The edging
also helps. A sharp angle in the scal
lop fixes the date in the middle ages,
the rounded scallop came in with the
nineteenth century, with the seven
teenth a dotted scallop, and the eight
eenth century one is more elaborate, a
large alternating with a small scallop
and dots aloug In the center of each.—

Somo Tyrolean EpitnpliN.
A German traveler has discovered
some quaint epitaphs Iu a Tyrolean
cemetery.
On a tombstone In a valley of Tux
was this inscription: "In pious remem
brance of the honest widow Anna
Kriedi, forty years long."
A miller is thus remembered: "In
Christian memory of II who de
parted this life without human assist
ance."
A farmer whose initials only are
given and who appears to have been
the author of his own epitaph lias tills
memorial: "Here rests iu God F. K.
lie lived twenty-six years as man and
thirty-seven years as husband."
On the tomb of a man who fell from
a roof and was killed are these words:
"Hero fell Jacob IloseunUopf from the
roof into eternity."
This wail of a desolate husband caps
the climax: "Tears cannot hriug the©
back to life. Therefore I weep."—
Household Words.
She Needed Them.
"I wish, John." she said regretfully,
"I had had sense euougli not to destroy
nil'the letters you wrote me during the
yetfr and a half of your courtship."
He smiled in a gratllied way. "1
knew you would regret that some time."
he said.
"Indeed I do," she replied. "I ueed a
little change the worst sort of way,
and the man who buys rags and old pa
per was here today. IIow wasteful wo
are in our youth!"
He looked at her reproachfully, and
almost involuntarily his hand sought
his pocketbook. It is seldom indeed
that a resourceful woman has to make
a direct request for mouey.—Chicago

Farnttnre Polish. ...
A recipe for a very superior furni
ture polish given by a dealer in musical
instruments to a housewife as lhe
cause for the shining surfaces of the
pianos in his rooms cousists of four
tablespooufuls of sweet oil. four table
spoonfuls of turpentiue, a teaspoonful
of lemon juice and ten drops of house
hold ammonia. This polish must be
thoroughly shaken before using and ap
plied with an old tlaunel or silk cloth.
Hub briskly and thoroughly, which is
at least a third of the merit of all pol
ishes. Use a sccoud cloth to rub the
mixture into the grain of the wood and
a third for the linal polish.

A Florida fruit grower stales that the

They pare it, cut it lengthwise, slice it
