Audit- was atundlug ln the churchyard of the hamlet, hut It was not at
the landscape that he knew so well
thut he wan looking, nor even up tlie
slope beyond, where the grent Chateau
ile Beau Sejour shot us towers and
pointed turrets through its enclrcliug
domain of wood. Ten leagues away iu
the dim distance lay Nerac, the poverty-stricken home from which he took
his title, und whose meagre patrimony
encumbered with the debts of his ancestors and his own barely sufficed to
provide a living for the widowed
mother to whom thut morning he hud
suld good-bye and whom the English In
the Low Countries might decide he
should nevei see again.
Yet it was not of his mother that he
was thinking, still less of the enchant-
tress of the forest whose identity he
had discovered—one Mademoiselle
d'Etiolles she hnd proved to be. "Iji
Petite d'Etiolles," as thnt gay Lothario
the Due de Richelieu called her. the
daughter of n Farmer-General, a bourgeoisie notorious for her beauty, her
wit, and her friendship with the wits.
Indeed he hnd forgotten the rose-pink
divinity in the azure phaeton entirely.
N'o, he waB striving to pluck up courage to face Denlse and receive her answer. For if that unswer was not what
he desired it would be better to ride
straight down Into the Loire and let
the lust male of the Utilise of Nerac
put nn end to It for ever.
Twinkling lights begun to shine In
the greut chateau; its towers and gables Insolent In the majesty of their
beauty, strong in the might of their
antiquity, challenged and defied,him la
the dusk. That was the chateauVif *,!#
Denlse, the Marquise de Beau Sejour
whom he, gnllant fool, rich only In his
noble pedigree, dared to love and hoped
to win, Denlse the richest heiress In
France. Yet It hnd not been hers so
long; Its broad selgnorles were a thing
of yesterduy for her. Fifteen years ago
she, as he, had heen ouly the child of
a vlcomte as poor if as noble as himself. And Beau Sejour lay not here,
but ten leagues away, a mile from Nerac, where that church spire bung its
cross above the horizon.
The soft gloom of the growing dusk
Imnged for Andre at that moment the
sombre pull  of tragedy which  twelve
years ugo had fallen on the great chateau.   An auelent house, a venerated
name had been Its owner's; were not
their   achievements   written   ln   the
chronicleR  of  France?  wus  not  their
origin lost In the twiligh. of dim uges
far, ao far away? Capets and  Vulois
and Bourbons that house had seen coming  and  going ou   the  throne,  honor
and  fame and  weulth und  high    endeavor  bad  been   theirs,    and    tben
shame and doom, swift, unexpected, Irreversible. The   story of their downfall
had  been   his  first  lesson  learned  in
budding manhood of the harshness of
the world and the mystery   of   fate.
Such a simple story, too. The wife of
the Marquis had run away with a lover,
a buseborn stranger gossip culled him.
The lover hud deserted her, why und
where no one knew, uud disowned by
her liusbund she hud died miserably.
Her husband, u soldier and ambassador of the great Louis Quatorze, bad
In despair or madness   plunged    Into
treason, and had paid the traitor's penalty on tbe scaffold. His only son and
heir, from remorse or consciousness of
guilt, had  perished  by his own  hand
In  Poland, whither he hud    gone    to
tight lu the war. And here to-day at his
feet   n  rough  und   stained   tombstone
murked the neglected gruve of the only
duughler who hud remained. Had Bhe
lived she would tn-nlght have been just
two yeurs older than Denlse; had there
been no treason, she and not Denlse
would have been mistress of that chateau now called De Beau Sejour.
Denise's futber for service to the
stute hud been awarded thc lands of
the traitor; the old name for centuries
noted In this soil hud been annulled In
Infancy; Its blood was corrupted by
tin* decree of the law, and by the
Klng'B will the new Murqtils hud carried to his new possessions the title
of his old, thut Beau Sejour yonder so
near to his own Nerac. Tbe law and
the King so far as In them lay had determined that tbe very name and memory of the ancient house should be
blotted out for ever. But blot out the
chateau they could not. There It stood
haughty as of old, to tell to all what
hud ouce lieen, and the curious could
still reud here und there ln Its storied
wulls Ihe arms and emblems, the
scutcheons and shields of a family
which hud given nine Marshals to
France, and In whose veins royal blood
hud flowed Ml...* did tbut matter now''
To-day It belonged to Denlse, onco poor
as he wus, und destined to be bis
bride before (his sudden swoop upward on the ruins of another to tba
high pluces of France.
As Andre paced to nnd fro In    th*
dusk the ghostly memories thickened.
Twenty years ago as a boy he had ridden with his father to thut chateau. He
reminemberi'd  but two things, but he
remembered them ns vividly as yesterday. Over the chief gateway a splendid
coat of arms bud caught his    boyish
funcy and he hud asked what the motto "Dleu Le Vcngeiir"    might    mean.
"Why, futher, there It Is again," he had
cried, for In the noble hall, above the
lain..11    sculptured  chlmney-plece,  the
first  thing that  cuught the boy's eye
was the scroll with those thrcu words
"Den  Le  Vengour." And  tho  second
memory was of a little girl    playing
with a huge wnii i....nni In the dancing
firelight under that motto, a little girl
with blue ayaa nn.l fair huir, Innocent
of the evil to con..*, pluylng In her hall
which hod seen  kings and queens for
■guests. "Dleu Le "engetir" she hud re
peuted—"(Iod   will   protect  mo," and
they hnd nil laughed. But hud (Iod poi
lected her? Here was her gruve at his
feet  Andre now recalled his dying father's  remurk  live  yenrs  Inter,  when
he  Inul  beard  how  his neighbor    the
('..niii* (|, Bean Sejour hud been reward
ed with the 11... on tainted niarqulsate.
"That would hnve been yours, Andre,
my son," he hud said. And no one hud
understood, und he hnd died before he
could  expluin,  If  expluln    he    could.
Thut.. tmi bud beeu onclher i.V'n*-
ei.it in tne crUelt**** of flirt, IB He Weak
bitter tragedy of baffled and unfulfilled
Smitten with a sudden pity, a sharp
anguish, Audre kneeled In tbe damp,
tangled grass and peered at the tomb
stone which marked the humble resting-place of the deud, worse than dead,
dishonored and infamous. "Marie An-
gellque Jeanne Gubrlelle   ..." the
rest was eaten away. But in the church
j close by lay the coffins of her ancestors,  tbe crusaders and  nobles,    and
[ Marshals of France.    The names had
beea    obliterated.    But   not   even    a ;
wronged king hud dured to remove the j
tombs with which thut church was elo- |
que nt of tbe glories that had once been
theirs. Yea. they luy there of right, but
she, little Marie, cradled in splendor,
Who had prattled of "Dleu Le   Ven- I
geur," she, the daughter of a wanton |
and a traitor, lay here ln the rain, and
the sheep and the goats browsed over
her, and the sabots of those once her
serfs and tenants made an Insulting
path over her grave.    And up   there
another reigned ln her place.
A traitor! Yes, his daughter deserved her fate. There should be no mercy
for traitors.
"What seek you. Monsieur le Vlcomte?"
He started at the question. It was
the Chevalier de St. Amant. boyish, Insolent, though his tone was strangely
"I was finding a lesson," Andr* replied quietly.
"In a tombstone?"
Andre explained. The Chevalier
•eemed Impressed, for he went down
on his knees and peered for some
minutes at the weather-beaten stone.
"Poor child I" he muttered. "Poor
Andre waa thinking the Chevalier
was better tban he had supposed, but
his next action Jarred harshly. Standing carelessly on the stone he gathered his cloak about him. "Ah, well," he
remarked, with his dare-devil lightness, "lt ls perhaps more fortunate for
you or me that little Marie ls where
sbe Is."
"For you or me?" Andre questioned,
peering into his young face.
"The Marquise awaits you, Vlcomte,"
he twitched his thumb towards the chateau, "perhaps you will understand better when you have seen ber," and with
a careless tip of his .-.nicy hat he
strode uway.
For one minute Andre burned to
seize tbat cloak aud speak to him very
stralghtly. "Pah!" he muttered, "It
will do later. Perhaps tt will not be
necessary at all."
But it was with Increased misgiving
that he rode up to the chateau.
Denlse received him in tbe great
hull, unconsciously reproducing the
picture which wus burnt Into Andre's
memory, for she stood with a certain
aweet stulellness by the sculptured
chimney-piece and a huge hound lay at
her feet. Above her head the emblaz
oned scutcheon of the old house still
adorned the noble curving—Indeed you
could not huve destroyed the one with
out destroying the other—and the glad
firelight which threw such subtly entrancing shadows on tbe dreas and
girlish figure of the young    Marquise
Seemed   tO   poilll   With  tongues  Of  tl_ III.
to that sublime motlo, "Dleu Le Ven
geur!" above her head.
Andre bowed and halted. Ambition,
passion, and hope conspired to choke
him for the moment. How fair and noble ahe was! yes, surpassingly fair and
Denlse said nothing. She stared at
the buckle of her slipper.
"I bave come for my answer," be
said, In a low voice.
She met bis pleading eyes fearlessly  "The answer la 'No,'" sbe replied,
and her voice, too, was low, aa If abe
could not trust It.
"No?" he repeated, half stunned.
Sbe simply bowed ber head.
"You mean It? Oh, Denlse, you cannot mean It?"
"1 bave reflected and I mean It."
"For always?"
Andre stepped nearer. "I do not remind you, Denis.*," he said, speaking
with a composure won by   a   mighty
mastery of himself, "that I love you,
tbat I have loved you since I could love
any woman. If you would not believe
it before 1 wa:. taken prisoner, wben I
epoke In the woods of Versailles, you
would not believe It now. Nor do I remind you that twelve month--- i ,;., you
■poke very differently. A loi n and *
gentleman  does not  speik    o.      »».T"
things when the answer bus been 'No.'
But 1 do ask you, before you say 'No,'
alwuys to remember tbal lt waa the
wish of your deud father and of mine
that tbe answer abould be 'Yes'"
"My father died five years ago,
yours even longer," she answered.
"Do the yeara alter tbeir wish?" he
asked, with a touch of pusslon, "do tbey
make a promiac, good faith, honor, less
a promise, |.*ss "
"There was no promise," she Interrupted.
He bowed calmly. The gesture was
better than speech.
"And your reason, Denlse?"
"I said I would give you an answer,
I did not undertake to give reasons."
"Certainly. May 1 plead,    however,
that perhaps,  remembering the past,
wbat you and 1 have beeu to each otber
slace childhood, I bave some right t*
She placed her fan on the shelf of
the chimney with sharp decision. The
firelight flashed In her grey eyes. "I
refuse," ahe said, very distinctly, "to
marry a man who doea not love me."
"Then you do not believe my
words?" be questioned quickly.
"You are a noble, Andre," ahe answered; "tbe courtesy of a noble and
a gentleman reaulres that when he
demands a woman's hand In marriage
he should profess to love her. For the
honor you have done me I thank you,
but a woman finds tbe proof not In
words but in deeds. You are a bravo
soldier, but you do not love me. Tbat
is enough."
"No, lt Is not enough for me," be answered.
"Very well" She took a step forward. "I bad uo desire to discuss
things not flt for k girl to speak of to a
man who bas done her tbe hi-mor to ask
her hand In marriage, and I would huve
spared both myself and you unnecessary pain. Plainly then and briefly,
when I take a husband I do not choos*
to share what he professes ls his lov*
with any other woman. Tbat 1* my
reason and my answer In one."
A flush darkened bis sallow cheek.

handed it to him with hot scorn.
"It wus written tw«tv« mouths ago,"
be suld, somewhat lamely.

calm again "I [hank you for the honor
you have done me, but—" she offered
bim the stateliest, coldest curtesy,
"Vicomte, 1 am your servant."
She would have escaped by the door
behind her, but Andre intercepted her.
"No," he said, "you do no( leave me
yet. I, too, have something to say and
you, Mapquise, will be pleased to heari
Their eyes met and then Denlse
walked back to her place by the flre-j
place. She was trembling now, and sbe,'
no longer looked him in the face.
"As to the past," he suid in a low
voice.  "I  say nothing, for I    deserve
yonr reproaches. 1 have been foolish, i
wicked, unworthy of you. But there is t
no noble to-day at Versailles of whom i
the same could not be said. Men are,
men. and I have never concealed from
you what I have been. But such things
do not destroy love. They cannot an.l I
they never will, and    every    women
knows it. My past, I assert, Is not your
reason "
"What then ls?" she asked proudly.
"I am  poor, you are rich, but  that
is not (he reason, either. Do not think
I would dishonor you by supposing that
1 believed that, though some whom you
call your friends suy It Is. No, the reu-

poisoning  your mind,  some  oue  who
hopes to take the place       "
"Take care " she Interrupted.
"You speak of the gossip of Purls. I
will not tell you what the gossip of
Puris and Versuilles says, for you will
hear It und more fitly from other lips
than mine. Bin I aay, that poisoner will

She wus ubout to speak, but checked herself.
"And 1 will tell you why. First be

"Have done, have done wllb this

"Tell me," was his answer, "on your
word of honor, that It Ib not ao, tell
me dial you do not love me and never
will, tell ine that you love another and
on my word us a gentleman 1 will
never speak of love to you again."
Deud silence. Andre waited quietly.
"I refuse," she suld, slowly, picking
the words, "to be questioned In this
manner. But us you insist, 1 repeut—I
do uot love you.
Andre bowed. "One word more, Denlse, If you please," he said, "one word
and I leave your presence for ever."
She drew herself up. "Yes," she suld,

Andre looked at her, hut he mude no

watching him, and Hung the lotlar Into

nothing, though her great grey eyes
were eloquent witb bslf a dozen ques
"The letter has served Its purpose,"
Andre said. "Adieu, Marquise!"
"What does this—mis trickery
mean?" she demanded, hotly.
"You must forgive one who loves
you," waa the calm reply, "for love
laughs at tricks. The Comte des Forges Is alive and well: he has a wound
In his shoulder which Is only a scratch,
for the poor Comte ls always believing
that aome one Is betraying his honor
and Madame the Comtesse hns a fickle
