The Daily Short Story
Victor Hugo's Love.
In Its inception, the love of Victor
Hugo for Adele Foucher was uot lack
log In romance, thoush uf the most del
lcate and Innocent kind. Tlioy had
known each other as children, and little
Victor had alrpcdy vpent many an
evening In paring silently on hla future
wife. The llrst ilirect avowal made be
tween them (and here the ioet trans-
grenhod the continental etiquette of
courtship) wan when he wax 17 aud the
was 16. They were playing In the gar
den (for a loy of 17 is only a child in
France), and in a burst of confidence
the young girl naM. 'Tell me your
greatest secret, and I will tell you
mine." ".My greatest secret." said Vic
tor, "Is that I love you." ".My greatest
secret is that I love you," echoed A dele.
Hut though tiiey had spoken, the kisses
which we consider proper to seal the
troth do not appear to have followed
In au ode written later on the ioct re
marks, with his iiKual hriierbole of
rhrase. ''You hived me without trans-
Iort. I loved you without madness."
SAdele soon lx-canie frightened at the
audacity of their affection, a in I when
she shows the verses Victor has sent
her. her girl friends are scandalized.
They say that he will lose his respect
for her. but to reassure her-he signs
his letters. "Your husband." He tells
her that ho has liecome the daughter
of General Hugo by pledging herself to
htm. and the Napoleonic legend was
sufficiently strong to make the son of a
hero of the empire worth loving. The
result of even so small a flight of ro
mance as the lovers seeing each other
alone was inevitable.
AVhen a year had elapsed, the parents
found ont the affair, and relations were
broken off lctweeu the two families.
Tied to his mother's aprou strings
(albeit he was twenty). Victor wept.
then broke into u furious diatribe, and
sat down and wrote a novel. Ilct
however useful the sorrow of his heart
may have lcen as material. Le did not
give up hope. The father of his young
lady having written a "Manual of
Recruiting," he Indicted a eulogistic
review, aud as this did not draw the
stern parent he sent him his ode on
the birth of an heir to the throne.
M. Foucher replied with thanks, not
to tLe poet, but to the poet's mother.
aud the chasm !ccame a little nar
rower owing to this ingenious use of
Love sickness began to tell on the
poet, and he made up his mind at all
costs to learn if Adcle loved him still.
Like most young ladies of the period.
the was taking drawing lessons, and
he obtained an Interview with her by
the piosaic means of stopping her in
the street. It was somewhat heroic
for a French lover to do It. aud bis
bravery was rewarded: then the
Interrupted correspondence again. The
lover watches her unpcrcclved when
she goes to mass; be hovers near the
bouse where lie sees her light burning
at night. Then n dramatic Incident
happens. Victor Hugo's mother dies
suddenly; on the evening of the day
of the funeral he cannot resist the
Idea of seeking consolation from Adele.
He goes to the house where her father
is giving a ball; he enters unpercelved,
and sees Adele laughing and talking i
gayly. Relieving that nbe does not care
for his sorrow, he rushes out. and some
time will elapse and explanations have
to be made before the wound is healed.
M. Foucher calls to pay a visit of
condolence, but the embargo Is not re
moved till the father takes his daugh
ter into the country. Victor follows
them and. with the assurance of a
young man, writes to say that he has
eeen them with the greatest surprise;
that he would instantly leave the vil
lage had be not accepted several en
gagements, etc. The pity or the sense
of humor of M. Foucher was touched,
and be permits au Interview, during
which the iKX't asks for Adele'as band.
It was the romanticist period, and the
father allows an engagement, though
not an "official one." in the hope that
Victor's circumstances will Improve.
But for the present Victor may only
write to the father, and bis passion Is
only expressed In very quiet I might
almost ay "official" terms.
When the love letters begin again,
the earlier Impetuosity and pessimism
have mellowed to a more manly strain.
The poet Is somewhat didactic and bad
a great deal of advice to give bis sweet
heart, but there was a subtle, uncon
scious .flattery in his forbidding her to

Adele still seems to be thinking of
the unconventionally of their love. An
English girl would not ask for so many
assurances of respect, but Victor had
to Inform his betrothed categorically
that her behavior bad been perfect.
He talks very seriously to her, and he
is scarcely past bis twenty-first year
when he writes, "Independently of my
sorrows and domestic troubles" (his
father, the general, gave him a very
small allowance). "I have to resign
myself to the disgust of literary ha

surrounded by wicked detractors! I

hobnobbed in the garden of Eden has
woman adorned herself with the
snake's staly leugta. A new belt con
sists of a snake which colls twice
around madam's waist, the coils be
ing far apart in the back and close
together in front, and which finally
catches his tail In his mouth. Ruckles
made of snakes coiled upon themselves
are in evidence. Some smart buckles
are of dull sliver In the form of medal
lions or of ragged leaved, artistic
chrysanthemums, other flower shapes
are enameled with all the colors of the
In some of the more expensive leather
belts a hook Is set In at the back on the
under side, a hook not larger than a
niedinm sized hook used In dressmak
ing. It fastens up Into the skirt bind
ing and effectually prevents the belt
from slipping above It.
Very high draped girdles are again In
fashion and are much worn with Eton
or bolero Jackets. Narrow alglon belts
are fastened with cockades made of
black velvet and gold braid Instead of
the dangling gold tipped streamers
which were used earlier In the year.
Ail the imported belts have fobs to
match. The are made from the same
leather In fancy shape and have as a
buckle a small reproduction of the belt
Some of the scarab belt clasps now
shown in the shops are exceedingly
tasteful. When small that is, not
more than an Inch In length and
simple, set in plain bands of gold or In
a delicate little filigree setting, they
are among the prettiest things of that
kind worn. Some of the scarabs are
In light colors. In delicately tinted
stones, and these will be particularly
effective with summer gowns. Chicago
How Royalties Shop.
Undoubtedly Queen Alexandra is one
of the most fastidious of customers to
please as regards her dress. When she
gives an order for n new dress, she
likes it to be delivered to her without
sign of Itrever having passed through
human hands or that needles and cot
ton had ever lteen employed In Its
making. As Is well known, her maj
esty Is an expert dressmaker, and woe
betide the unlucky firm that lias sent
a habit which will require alteration.
for the queen wUl have her dresses to
fit like n glove, says Woman's Life.
The Dnchess of Edinburgh is quite
the reverse of the queen and seldom
sends a dress back to be altered. Her
royal blghuess is very gracious and
pleasant ns to her orders and the exe
cution of the same.
One of the most popular of the royal
shoppers is the Duchess of York. She
gives little or no trouble to her fitters
and Is very easily pleased with her
toilets and the manner in which her
orders have leen carried out. In this
respect she greadly resembles her la
mented mother, the Duchess of Teck,
who was, ns a rule, extremely cour
teous and easily pleased.
Many of the royal delight to go
shopping unrecognized, and one very
rich princess Is constantly going about
by herself. She Is particular that
neither the assistants nor proprietor
shall recognize that she Is of royal
blood, and thus Insures being treated
precisely as the more ordinary costom-
