A Gift of
By EDWARD D. SHIPLEY
One day a couple of hundred years
ago Hans Berault, a young countryman
who had never learned anything except
what he could pick up on the farm,
drove into the capital of the dukedom
of Flanders with a load of cabbages to
Bell in the market place. was sur
prised to see flags flying from all the
windows, the people out in their best
costumes and every appearance of a
N Hans, who in his farm clothes
looked greener than the cabbages in his
cart, stopped beside the curb and asked
some men talking there what was the
occasion of the festivities and was told
that the duchess, who had up to this
time been a minor, came of age that
day and would assume the reins of
"And what are those wagons so gay
ly decorated for? And where are tbey
going?" asked Hans.
"They carry presents to the duchess."
Now, Hans was a good citizen, and
he bethought him that he, too. should
offer his gift to his sovereign, so he
drove his cart toward the palace, in
tending to offer his cabbages to her
highness. On the way he stopped at a
shop and bought some flags, the largest
of which he placed over the cabbages.
Then he went on to the palace, where
the wagons he had seen were drawn
up in the court, waiting their turn to
be unloaded. Han pulled up at the
rear of the .line and waited too. When
his turn came the chamberlain asked
at be had and from whom it came.
"Cabbages from my farm, and I offer
them to the duchess as my gift as
ber loyal subject." Han replied.
Wit this the chamberlln grew red
in the.face and began to berate Hans

for what lie called his effrontery, a
mere country lout making a gift of
cabbages to the duchess. Then he call
ed for a guard to take him away.
Now the duchess, who was just eight
een years old, was mightily interested
in her presents and was leaning out of
an upper window looking down watch
ing their unloading. Seeing the pre
dicament in which the honest Hans
had innocently placed himself, she sent
a messenger down to say that Hans'
gift would be accepted, and he was to
come into the palace to be thanked per
sonally by her royal self. So the coun
tryman was conducted into a richly
furnished apartment, where the girl
received him and thanked him for his
cabbages. She appeared to be much
touched by the loyalty of the simple fel

"Indeed I would," replied Hans
"and for so sweet and gracious a sov

enemies single handed."
Then she gave an order that Hans
should be given a commission as lieu

dismissed him with many thanks for
his valuable present
W can never be sure of any heart

and the foe was marching on the capi

countryman who had said that for so
sweet and gracious a sovereign he
thought he could conquer all her ene
mies single handed. Ordering her
coach and her mounted bodyguard, she
drove out toward her retreating forces.
When she met them she sent at once
for Colonel Hans Berault and said to
"Colonel, you once said that for me
you thought you could conquer my
enemies single handed. I wish you to
take command of this retreating army
and turn it against the enemy."
"Your highness can make it possi

Then the troops were collected as
fast as they arrived, and the duchess
told how Han when a simple fellow
of the lowest grade had made her a
present of his cabbages and how she
had received his gift. They heard the
story with cheers, and when their new
leader ordered them to reform and
march back against the enemy they
sprang forward eagerly.
A peace was conquered, and a vic
torious army marched back to the
capital. The duchess, who had loved
the countryman .soldier ever since she
had Grst met him, after a consultation
with her ministers decided to offer him
her hand in marriage. He became
