There's a great pal of mine, Mrs.
Lanrence," said Captain Colllngwood.
"She would love to know you, Lady
Betty. Do you mind If I introduce
yon to each other?" -
"See here, that means we shall be
bitched up with all that lot of cadets,"
Potter objected quite crossly. ' "What's
the good of wasting time?" (
I hurried to say that I shouldn't con
sider It a waste of time, that I 'should
be delighted to meet Mrs. Laurence
and also a few sample cadets. If any
could be provided for the consumption
of an inquiring British tourist.
Captain Colllngwood thought that
one or two might be found who would
not object to the sacrifice, and five
minutes later I was having more fun
than I had ever had before in my life.
Mrs. Laurence was sweet and so
tactful. She scarcely talked to me at
all, except to ask me how I liked
America and a few of the things peo
ple are obliged to get off their minds
when .they meet a foreigner, and then
she Introduced five cadets.
I was terrified for a minute, because
until I left home my whole (youthful)
male experience consisted of one
brother, three cousins and two curates,
dealt with separately and with long,
sleepy intervals between. I began to
wonder how I could possibly manage
Ave tall youths at once and to rack my
brains for the right kind of conversa
tion. But before I should have had
time to say "knife" to a curate I
found myself chatting away with
those cadets as If I had grown up
With them. I never once stopped to
think what I should say next, and
neither did they.
. Some girls were introduced to me,
too, but luckily they didn't seem to
expect me to talk to them much, so I
didn't. More and more cadets kept
coming over from camp and joining
our group and being introduced in
agreeable droves until I gave up even
trying to remember their names.
There was one, though, in the first
batch of five whose name was easy to
get hold of and keep in mind because
it was Smith. Besides, he was the
beet looking of all, which made classi
fying him a real pleasure.
The girls who spoke to Mr. Smith
celled him "captain," perhaps joking
ly, ant I asked how he could be a
captain and yet a cadet unless It

tLlatf tne cadets had all the different

to know if there were any other ques
tions I would care to ask. I said that
there were lots, but I wasn't sure if
I might '
, "I give you a permit" said he In a
military way.
So I began with the buttons. "I
ehould like to know why you have so
' many all those rows on your jacket.
, Anfl It's only the middle row you seem
to use for anything."
. "We use the others to give away to
girls to remember us by," answered
my cadet "It's forbidden, but that's
a detail. Or rather it's why the girls
like to have them."
I stared. "None of yours are miss
ing." "Most of 'em are pinned on at pres
ent It's that way with all of us. Our
ptebs sew 'em on for us at night and
use the door for a thimble."
"Oh, what are plebs, if you please?
"Are you allowed valets?"
"I guess they call 'em fags in your
country. There are a lot of them ly
ing around. Shall I bare some caught
and dragged here? They might squirm
a bit, as they aren't used to ladies' so
ciety, but"-
I hastily protested against such a
cruel exhibition and went on with my
questions. I asked what tbey did in
winter and how long they had to be
cadets and whether they were in a
, hurry to be officers.
"Not as long as the girls can put up
with us as we are," said my cadet
"Some of them even pretend they like
us better."
"I can quite understand that!" I ex
claimed. And then they all laughed,
and some of them applauded.
"The really important question is,"
aid Captain or Mr. Smith, "whether
you are going to be an officers' or a
cadets' lady."
I hadn't an Idea what he meant bat
I remembered Vic's saying that In the
lower middle classes they sometimes
call a man's wife bis "lady." Perhaps,
I thought, the expression had Ixrn
brought over to the nicest people hi
America in the Mayflower, which they
all talk so much about, for certainly
some of the people In her must have
been cooks or in the steerage; there
are too many descendants for the first
class passengers alone. After consid
ering for a minute I said in rather an
embarrassed way that I wasn't "quite
sure yet whether I would be either."
"You must be one or the other, you
know, or you'll be like the bat in the
fable who was neither bird nor beast,
and so was out of all the fun on both
sides. I may be prejudiced, but I ad
vise you to be a cadets' lady. And
you'd better decide now on account of
"Tonight?" I repeated, puzzled.
"Yes, on account of making out your
card. Say, Lady Betty, If you are go
ing in with us, can I make out your
Then arose a clamor. It appeared
that they all wanted to make out the
card whatever It was. I asked If I
couldn't have one from each, but It
appeared that yeu couldnt do that.
My cadet had spoken first, so he said
that he would do It, but the others
could give me bell buttons and chev
rons and decorate fans for me Instead.
"Do you like hops. Lady Betty?" in
quired a perfect pet of a cadet, who
looked like a cherub in uniform.
"Hops?" I wondered why he should
ask me such an irrelevant question, but
I answered as Intelligently as I could.
"I don't know much about them. I
think they're graceful, but I don't like
the smell."
He looked petrified. "The smell?"
"Yes. It makes one sleepy."
"I guess we won't give you much
chance to be sleepy tonight" said he,
"at our hop."
Then I understood. But what a
funny thing to call a ball a "hop!"
They explained, too, when they saw
how stupid I was, that you were an
"officers' lady" if you danced with
them and walked with them and flirt
ad with thenl and didn't bother with
:adets, or vice versa. Then I decided
at once that I would be a cadets' lady,
though I was sorry I had only one
night to be it In. They were sorry,
too, and showed their sorrow in so
many nice ways that I enjoyed myself
Immensely and quite saw how nice it
must feel to be out if you are a suc
cess. They wanted to draw lots for
which cadet should take me to Flir
tation Walk, but I said I bad to go
with Mr. Parker.
He must have been listening from a
distance, though he ought to have been
talking with a pretty girl who had no
bat, for he came up to me at once and
announced that it was time to go now.
He rather put on airs of having a
right to tell me what I must do, and I
didn't like it much, especially before
those dear cadets, but it would have
been childish to make a fuss. Be
sides, I was his guest.
I went like a disagreeable lamb
sulking on its way to the slaughter;
but thank goodness, I was engaged
already for nearly all the dances, and
most of them had to be split In two,
there were so many cadets for them.
(I think, by the by, I shall try to get
Stan to take me to Sandhurst some
day to see if it is at all like West
Point and whether they have hops.)
Potter made fun of the cadets and
called them "white meat" and "little
things that got in the way." But
when I asked a straight question he
had to confess that he had been one
himself only six years ago. "I was
twenty-two when I graduated," he
said. "One of the youngest men in
my class." Which was the same as
telling me that he Is twenty-eight
now. Ten years older than I am! It
makes him seem quite old.
Somehow, although he Is so nice to
me In most ways, he stirs me up to
feel antagonistic, as though I wanted
to contradict him and not like things
that he likes, and I believe it is the
same with him about me, for I make
his eyes look angry very often. I felt
he was disappointed because I ad
mired the cadets so much and had
promised so many dances, and I was
in a mood to tease him. But I fancy
he isn't the kind who would take
teasing well, and the scenery he was
showing me was so beautiful that
presently I resolved to be good.
We saw Kosciusko's monument and
I would insist upon his telling me
things about Kosciusko himself,
though Potter didn't seem to think
him important And then we began
winding our way along a most ex
quisite path overhanging the river, al
ways shadowed by trees. Sometimes
It was cut through a green arbor, with
a light like liquid emeralds. Some
times it ran high on the rocks. Some
times it dipped down close to the wa
ter, but invariably there was just
enough room for two, and no more, to
walk side by side.
We met several couples cadets and
girls, young officers and girls saun
tering or sitting down close together
in out of the way place. But by and
by we seemed to have passed beyond
the inhabited zone. Then Potter asked
me If I were not tired from so much
walking and If I wouldn't like to rest
I said no, and he promptly pretended
to be done up. which I thought very
silly. But of course I had to sit down
by him on a rock with a green, moss
velvet cushion.
"This Is what I've been longing for
all day." said he.
I hadn't and I was thinking about
the cadets. But I agreed that It waa
"Yes. It is," be answered, looking at
me. "I never Saw anything so pretty.
Sav. Lady Betty, you're an awful
I did open my eye at that "A
"rr I exclaimed. "I never had a
chance to try being It.".
"I guess you are born knowing. I've
been miserable all the afternoon.
Couldn't you see my agony?"
! "I didn't notice," said 1. ,
"Ah, that'a the trouble. You weren't
thinking of me. Of course, I oughtn't
to have enred for those little boys"
(some of them were lnchea taller than
he), "but I couldn't help It I kept
saying inside, 'This is a foretaste of
what I've got' to suffer when she's
staying with Katherlne at the Moor
ings.' I don't know when I've been so
unpopular with myself. I don't see
how I'm going to get along unless
you'll be nice to me, right now.''
"I am nice to you," 1 said. "As nlco
ns I know how to be."
"I could teach you to be a lot nicer.
Say, Lady Betty, let me, won't your
His eyes, though tbey are such a
pale blue, had that silly, melting look
in them that my cousin Loveland's
hate when he talK to me. "Let you
do what?" I asked almost snappishly
for a person sitting in such a lovely
"Teach you to like me. I fell all
over myself in love with you the first
minute I saw you."
"Day before yesterday!" I "exclaimed.
"What nonsense. You're poking fun
at me. I don't believe in love at first
sight at least I don't think I do. Any
how, nobody could fall in love with me
In that way."
"Couldn't they, though? That's all
you know about it, then. All Amer
icans will fall In love with you like
that, and k's just what I want to
guard against. I want you to be en
gaged to me before you go to New
port. Then I shall feel kind of safe."
"Dear me, are you really proposing,
and it isn't In joke?" I asked. "I do
wish you wouldn't."
"Would I propose to Lady Betty
Bnlkeley In Joke?" he reproached me.
"The idea ot proposing to any girl
when you've only seen her three
"What did 1 tell you about my friend
In San Francisco? 1 was working
slowly up to this, even tln."
"Yes, very slowly. I think I've
shown a great deal of pa tience. Amer
ican girls the beauties, I mean are
quite hurt if a fellow doesn't propose
somewhere along in the first day or
two. They think he can't appreciate
their real worth and that he deserves
what he gets If some other chap walks
away with them. Now, I'm not going
to sit still on my perch and see any
thing else walking off with you."
I couldn't help laughing. "I'll call
for help if I think there's no danger,"
said I, "but I can't promise more than
that. I didn't come over to America
to pick up a husband."
He looked at me rather queerly when
I said that, almost as if he thought I
had come for that express purpose
and was trying to conceal It But of
course he couldn't be so horrid as to
suppose such a thing really, and I must
have imagined the strange expression.
If he only knew, I came away so that
another girl might be sure to get a
husband, and I'm not allowed to go
back until he has been got!
"They're just growing around on
blackberry bushes and In strawberry
patches for you to pick and choose,"
said. Potter, "and that's what worries
me. I'm a wildly jealous fellow. I've
got two months' leave so as to be with
you at Newport and I tell you I shall
6ee a bright beautiful crimson if too
many dudes come fooling around the
shanty. Say, won't you just play we're
engaged anyhow and see how you like
But now I was really cross and
wouldn't hear a word more of such
nonsense, so I jumped up, and he had
to scramble up too.
"If you've really proposed which I
doubt," said I, "you must please un
derstand that you've been formally re
fused. But I forgive you beouse I
believe you must have been chaffing
and because it's my first proposal, so at
all events I can't die without having
had at least one. Now, do be sensible
and take me back or I shall have to
find my way alone or else ask a
strange cadet to pilot me."
That threat found a vulnerable spot,
and he was not half bad on the way
home perhaps no worse than the
name of thewalk allowed.
I was a good deal excited about the
ball, as it was my very first Sally
Woodburn had looked at my things
and told me what to bring. Not that
it was a hard choice, for I have only
four frocks with me in which I could
go to a dance. The one Sally wanted
me to wear at West Tolnt Is a little
white thing of embroidered India mus
lin. Thompson made it after one of
Vic's, and it is a rag compared to
Sally's and Mrs. Ess Kay's gorgeous
things. But when Sally had done my
hair in a new way (they had left
Louise behind, as there was no room
for her) and fastened around my throat
a lovely string of pearls she brought
on purpose I loooked quite nice.
The "hop" was in a gn-at big room
which the cadets use for something or
other. I forget what and it was dec
orated with quantities of American
flags. There were lots of girls the
youngest things! Hardly any of them
could have been out. but there were
even more men; counting officers and
cadets, at least two for each girl.
The card which my particular cadet
bad talked about making for me was
a programme, with all the dances and
the men's names and illuminations
which he bad put on himself. It was
beautiful, and I told him that I would
always keep it I danced every dance,
with two partners for each, and there
was a cotillon afterward with favors
to remind the girls who got them of
West Point; little flags and buttons
and bits of gold lace, but I was very
lncky, for some of the friends I bud
made in camp had smuggled me spe
cial things.' and I shall have quite a
collection of sergeant's stripes and cor
poral's chevrons, belt buckles and beau
tiful bright bell buttons with initials
scratched on them.
I don't believe Vic had half so much
fun at her first ball as I had at mine,
although hen Is so many seasons ago
now that I cant remember what she
said about It I was only a little girl
then, and she wasn't In the habit of
telling me things aa she la now.
Although I didn't , get to bedtin
after 2, T was up early next morulnii.
because I had prom mod my best ca
dets that I would be at morning pa
rade, or whatever they call It, to say
"Are you going to' be an officer? or a
cadeUf ladyf
goodby. Bally went with me, and It
was, quite an affecting parting. I
shall never forget those dear boys if 1
live to be a hundred, though I can't
remember any of their names, as after
all I lost the card I meant to keep al
ways. To Be Continued.
Stormy Relation of the Miserly King
and the Lavish Author.
The world knows plenty about the
elements of strength In the characters
of great men, but less about their
weaknesses. Here is a story that
shows the other side of the natures of
Frederick the Great and Voltaire:
Frederick the Great had a leaning
toward literature. He wrote poems,
plays and booklets that, in his opin
ion, possessed rare merit. So it
seemed fitting to him that great liter
ary men should fraternize, and he sent
an Invitation to Voltaire to be his
guest. Accompanying the invitation
was a sum of money to defray the
great Frenchman's traveling expenses
to the Prussian capital.
Let it be explained at this point that
Frederick was extremely penurious
and that Voltaire was not only ex
travagant, but had many of the char
acteristics of what we would now call
a grafter. It should also be under
stood that Frederick despised graft
ing, and Voltaire abhorred miserli
ness. Voltaire accepted the Invitation and
then had an afterthought. Why not
take a favorite niece with him? So
he wrote to the king that if he would
send an extra thousand louis he would
bring the girl.
"Sir," replied the king, "I did not
ask the young lady to do me the honor
of visiting me, and I shall send noth
ing to pay her expenses."
"The old miser!" said Voltaire to a
friend. "He has tubs of money In his
treasury, yet will not grant me this
However, Voltaire went to Berlin, but
each found that he hated the other too
much to make their friendship perma
nent. The king once gave Voltaire a pack
age of poems to revise.
"See," said Voltaire to a German no
bleman, "what a quantity of dirty
linen Frederick has sent me to Wash!"
The king thought his guest was too
free with the chocolate and sugar and
gave orders that he be put on a re
stricted dally allowance.
Voltaire retaliated by gathering all
the wax candles he could find in the
'halls and storing them In his trunk.
Soon the royal palace became too hot
for him, and,Jie began to pack up.
Then Frederick missed his package of
poems. At once he scented a plot. Vol
taire intended to take the verses back
home with him and palm them off as
bis own. Lord Macaulay has said that
the poems were so bad that he was
convinced Voltaire would not for half
of Frederick's kingdom have consent
ed to father them. But the king
thought differently, being the author
of the poems. '
" So the Prussian monarch had Vol
taire thrown into jail at Frankfort and
kept him locked up for twelve days.
Sixteen hundred dollars that was
found In his pocket was taken away
from him. The king In the days of
their friendship bad given Voltaire a
life pension of $3,200 a year, and the
money that was confiscated waa a
semiannual installment.
Thus ended their friendshipScrap
Marriage Among the Aztecs. .
The Aztecs, the most civilized peo
ple of the new world at the time of Its
discovery, had a curious marriage cus
tom. The ceremony was performed
by a priest, who took the hands of the
bride and bridegroom, asking them If
they would marry.
He then took a corner of the wo
man's veil and the man's robe and
knotted them together,- and bo they
were led to the bridegroom's house. A
fresh fire was then kindled on the
hearth, and around this fire the priest
caused the bride to go seven times.
The wedded couple then sat down to
gether, and so was the marriage con
tracted. An Inventory was also made,
which the father of the bride after
ward retained, of all the man and
wife brought together, of furniture for
the house, of land, of Jewels, orna
ments and clothes. Then kf It chanced
that the couple were divorced (as was
common among the Aztecs when man
and wife did not agree) they divided
the goods according to the portion eacb
had brought to the other, both nan
and wife having liberty to marry again
whom they pleased. Of the children
of the marriage the daughter were
given to the wife and the sons to the
husband. It was enacted upon pain
of death that the divorced couple were
not again to remarry.

It is admitted that Bright's Dis-
ease of the kidneys cause more
deaths in the United States than in
any other country; that more than
half the sickness in America is due
to weak or diseased kidneys.
We are a weak-kidneyed people,
and the reason Is plain. Ambitious
to enjoy more than a mere living, to
have all the pleasures that our
neighbors have, anxious for wealth
and success; we overwork, rest lit
tle, eat and drink unwisely, and are
"on the go" all the time.
This strenuous life of to-day tells
on the kidneys. The human body
was planned for a simpler life.
There Is Just so much work that
each organ can do. The kidneys
filter our blood day and nlght.re
ceivlng It in a ceaseless stream,
draining off the poisonous Impuri
ties. This duty is heavy enough In
a normal average life, but when we
work early and late, give up rest
and repose for enjoyment, and re
tire late to troubled sleep, the work
of the kidneys Is Increased enor
mously. Every bit of energy con
sumed throws into the blood a
quantity of waste like, the ashes of
a fire, and if the using up is too
rapid the kidneys cannot keep pace
with It. A cold, chill, fever, strain
or any excess may hasten the In
evitable breakdown, and as the cir
culation of the blood never stops,
