de Rouville, nominally tn command uf
the fort, but actually enjoying some excellent grouse shunting with a bell
mouthed old fowling piece on n distant
prairie, could not be present to deliver
up tbe post, and as there was no garrison Jnst then visible Helm took possession without any furinalities.
"I think, lieutenant, that you'd belter
look around through the village and see
lf you can scare up this Captain Whnt's-
hls-naine," said Ihe new cuinniander to
a stalwart young otlleer whn had enme
with him. "I can't think uf these
French names without getiing my brain
In a twist. Do you happen to recollect
the captain's name, lieutenant."
"Yes, sir—Gnspard Kousslilon It reads
In Colonel Clark's order, hut I am Inld
that he's sway on a trading tour," said
the young man.
"Vou may he told anything by these
hnlr tongued pnrlyvoos," Helm remark,
ed. 'lit won't hurt, anyway, to lind out
where he lives uud make a formal call.
Just for appearance sake, und to inquire ubout his health. I wish you
would try It, sir, and let me know the
result."
The lieutenant felt that this was a
peremptory order and turned about to
obey promptly.
"And I say, Beverley, come back sober lf you possibly can," Helm added
In bis most genial tone, thinking It a
grent piece of humor to suggest sobriety to a man whose marked difference
from the men of that time was his total abstinence from Intoxicating drinks.
Lieutenant Fltzhugb Beverley was a
Vlrglnlun of Virginians. llis family
bad long been prominent in colonial
affairs and boasted n record of great
achievements both In peace and In war.
He was the only snn of bis parents
and heir.to a line estate consisting of
lands and slaves; but, like many another of the restless young cavaliers
of the Old Dominion, be had come In
search of adventure over into Kentucky, along tbe path blazed by Daniel Boone, and when Clark organized
bis little army tbe young man's
patriotic and ehlvalrlc nature leaped
at tbe opportunity to serve bis country
under so gallant a commander.
Intent upon his formal mission, Lieutenant Beverley stalked boldly into tlie
inclosure at Itousslllon place and was
met ou the gallery by Mme. Itousslllon
In one of her worst moods. She glared
at him with her hands on ber hips, ber
mouth Bet Irritably aslant upward, ber
eyebrows gathered Iuto a dark knot
over her nose. It would be bard to
imagine a more forbidding countenance, and for supplementary effect out
popped hunchback Jean to stand behind her, with bis big head lying back
In the hollow of Ids shoulders and bis
long chin elevated, while be gawped Intently up into Beverley's/ace,
"Bon jour, nintkime." said.the lieutenant, lifting his but and speaking
with a pleiisunt accent. "Would it be
agreeable to Captain Roussillon for
me to see bim u moment?"
Despite Beverley's cleverness In using tlie French language he bad a de-
.-id.al briisiiueness of manner and a
curt, turn of voice not In the least Gallic. 'True, the soft Virginian Intonation
marked every word, and his obeisance
was as low ns if Mine. Itousslllon had
been a queen, but the light French
grace was wholly lucking,
"What do you want of my husbandV"
Mine. Ronsslllon demanded.
"Nothing unpleasant. I ussure you,
nindame." said Beverley.
"Well, he's mil at home, m'sieu'; he's
up the river for a few days."
She relaxed her stare, untied her
eyebrows and even let fall ber bauds
from her sholliikc hips.
"Thnnk .vou. niadame." said Beverley, -bowing again. "I am sorry not to
have seen him."
As be was Iurnlng to go n shimmer
of brown bait' streaked with gold

lu the door. lie paused, us If III response to a military command, While a
pair of gray eyes met bis wilh n Hush.
The cabin room was III lighted, but the
crepuscular dimness did not r.•■cm to
binder bis sight. Beyond the girl's
figure a pair of slender swords hung
crossed aslant ou the wall opposite tbe
low door.
The rough frame of the doorway
ga?e Just the rustle selling suited to
Alice's costume, the most striking part
of which was a grayish short gown
eliding Just above her fringed buckskin moccasins. Around her betid slm
bad bound a blue kerchief, a wide curlier of which lay over her crown like
u Iqose cup. Her bright hair bung free
upon ber shoulders lu tumbled half
curls.
Beverley could not stare at the girl,
and no sooner bad he turned bis back
upon ber than the picture lu bis mind
changed like a scene In u kaleidoscope,
Hei. uow saw a lull, finely developed
figure and K face delicately oval, with
a low, wjde forehead, arched brows, a
straight, slightly tip tilted nose, a
nioutb sweet and full, dimpled cheeks
and a strong chin set above a faultless
throat. His Imagination In easting off
lis llrst Impression was Inclined to exaggerate Alice's beauty and to dwell
upon Its plcluresipieness. He smiled
as be walked back to the fort and
even found himself whistling guyly a
snatch from a rollicking fiddle tune
that he hud beard wben a boy.
CHAPTER VI.
A -ENrlNll  BOUT
A PEW days after Helm's arrival M. Itousslllon returned
to Vlncennes, and if he wus
sorely touched iu bis amour
propre by seeing lis suddenly acquired
military rank and title drop away be
did uot let It be known In bis fellow
citizens. He promptly called upon the
new commander and mads acquaintance with Lieutenant Fltzhugb Beverley, who Just then was superintending
the work of cleaning up uu old cannon
in the fort and mending some broaks
in the stockade.
Helm formed u great liking for the
big French-nun, whose breezy freedom
of manner and expansive good humor
struck liim I'avurably from the beginning. M. Rousslllon's ability to speak
English with considerable ease helped
the friendship along, nn doubt; at all
events their lirst interview ended with
u hearty show of good fellowship, and
as time passed they became almost Ill-
separable companions during M. Rous-
sillun's periods of rest from liis trading
excursions aiming the Indians. Thoy
played cards and brewed lint drinks
over which they told uiurvelouB stories,
the latest one Invariably surpassing ull
ils predecessors.
Helm hsd an eye to business, and
turned M. Rousslllon's knowledge of
the Indians to valuable account, so
that be soon bad very pleasant relations wltb most of the tribes within
reach of his agents. This gave a feeling of great security to the people of
Vincennes. They pursued their narrow agricultural activities with excellent results und redoubled those social
gayeties which, even In hut and cabin
under ull the adverse conditions of extreme frontier life, were dear to the
volatile and genial French temperament.
Lieutenant Beverley found much to
Interest blm in the quaint town, but
the piece de resistance wus Oncle
Jnzon, who proved to be both fascinating and unmanageable—ta hard nut to
crack, yet possessing a kernel absolutely original In flavor. Beverley visited blm one evening in bis but—it
might better be called a den—a curiously built thing, with walls of vertical
poles set in a quadrangular trench dug
In the ground, uud roofed with grass.
Inside nnd out It was plastered with
Clay, and the floor of dried mud was as
smooth and hard as concrete paving.
In one end there was a wide fireplace
grimy with soot. In the otber a mere
peephole for a window; a wooden
bench, a bed of skins and two or three
stools were barely visible in the gloi.m.
in the doorway Oncle Jazon sut whittling a slender billet of hickory Into u
ramrod for bis long flintlock American
riflo.
"Maybe ye know Simon Kenton."
said the old man. utter be and Beverley
bad conversed for awhile, "seeing that
you are from Kentucky—eh?''
"Yes. I do know hlin well; he's n
warm personal friend of mine," said
Beverley with quick Interest, for it
surprised bim that Oncle Jazon should
know anything aJiotit Kenton. "Do you
know him, M. Jazon."
Oncle Jazon winked conceitedly and
sighted along his rudimentary ramrod
to see If It was Straight, then, puckering bis lips us lf on the point of whistling, made an atlirniative noise quite
impossible to spell.
"Well. I'm glad you nre acquainted
With Kenton," said Beverley. "Where
did you and he eome together?"
Oncle .lazon chuckled reiuiniscenlly
and scratched the skinless, cicatrized
spot where his scalp had once Hour
Ished,
"Oh, several places," he answered.
"Ye see Ihet hair a-liangin' there on
the wull?" He pointed at u dry wisp
dangling under a peg In a log barely
visible by the bad light "Well, thet's
my scalp. He, be, ho!" He snickered
as If the fact were a most enjoyable
joke. "Simon Kenton can tell ye about
thet little affair. The Indians thought
I was dead, und they took my hair; but
I wasn't dead. I was Just u-glvlif 'ein
n possum act. When tbey was gone I
got up from where 1 was a-luyln' and
trotted off. My head was sore, und.
ventrelileu, but 1 was mud! He, he.
he!"
All this time he spoke In French,
und the English but poorly paraphrases bis odd turns of expression. Ills
grimaces and grunts canuot even be
hinted.
lt was a long story, iib Beverley received it. told scrupplly, but wltb certain rude art. In Ibe end Oncle Jazon
said with unctuous self satisfaction;
"Accidents will happen. I got my
chance at thet Indlun who skinned my
head, and I Jes' took a bead on 'im wilh
my old riflo.   I can't shoot much, never
could, but i happened to bit 'im square

Twilight and moonlight were blend-  I
Ing softly when Beverley, on bis way
back to the fort, departing from a ill   !
reet course, went along the river's side I
southward to have a few moments of ]
reflective strolling within reach of Ihe
water's   pleasant   murmur   and   the
town's  Indefinite evening  stir.    Rich
sweetness,  the gift  of early  autumn,
wns on the air blowing softly out of a

flow, swollen by recent heavy rains.

Strokes of n paddle. The slender and
shallow little craft was bobbing on the

bill certain headway toward tl.. hither

would nave threatened, for the man
could swim like an otter, had not a
floating, half submerged log thrust up
_ome short, stilT stumps of houghs, upon the points of which the man struck
heavily and was not only hurt, but had
bis clothes impaled securely by one of
the ugly spears, so that he bung In a
helpless position, while the water's motion alternately lifted and submerged
him, his arms-beating about wildly.
When Beverley heard the strangling
cry for help he pulled himself promptly
together, flung off his coat, as If by a
sin, e motion, and leaped down the
bank Into the water. He was a swimmer whose strokes counted for all that
prodigious strength and excellent training could afford. He rushed through
the wnter wltb long sweeps, making a
lemlcircle, rounding against the current, so ns to swing down upon tbe
drowning man.
Less than n half hour later n rumor
by  some  menus  spread   through  the
town that  Father Beret and Lieutenant Beverley were drowned in Ihe'Wabash.   But when a crowd gathered to
verify the terrible news it turned out
' to bo untrue.   Gaspard Roussillon bad
i nice more distinguished himself by an
' exhibition of heroic nerve and muscle.
"Ventrelileu!      Quel    homme!"    ex-
| claimed  Onele Jazon,  when  told  that
M. Roussillon had come up the bank of_
Ibe Wabash with Lieutenant Beverley"
under one arm and Father Beret under
Ibe oilier, both men apparently dead.
"Bring them to my bouse Immediately," M. Roussillon ordered, as soon
is they were restored to consciousness;
and he shook himself, as n big wet animal sometimes dues, covering every-
oody near him with muddy' water'.
Then he led the way witb melodruuiat
c strides.
In justice to historical accuracy there
must he a trilling reform of what np-
leared on the face of things to be grand-
y true. Gaspard Rousslilon actually
.ragged Father Beret and Lieutenant
Beverley one at a time out of tbe eddy
water and up the sleep river bank.
Flint was truly u great feat; but the
icro never explained. When men ar-
ived he wns standing between the col-

"I've saved thein both," he roared;
rom wbicli, of course, the ready cre-
de Imagination Inferred the extreme of
lOSSible heroic performance.
"Bring tbem to my bouse Immediate-
y." And it was accordingly done.
Tbe procession, headed by M. Rous-
lllon, moved noisily, for the French
oiigtic must shake oil what comes to
t on the thrill of every exciting mo
lent. Tbe only silent Frenchman Is
be dead one.
Father Beret was not only well nlgb
rowned, but seriously hurt.    He lay
or a week on n bed In M. Rousslllon's
louse  before  he could  sit  up.    Alice
ling over hlin nlgbt and day, scarcely
sleeping or eating until he was past all
danger.   As for Beverley, he shook off
nil the effects of Ills struggle In a Utile
while.    Next day bo wus out, us well
and   strong   as   ever,   busy   with   the
affairs of bis olllce.    Nor was he leas
happy on account of what the little nd
Ventura had cast Into bis experience,

Unselfish   deed,  und  no  young  man's

Naturally enough, Alice had Rome
thoughts of Ileverby while she was so
attentively earing for Father Beret.

bave Interested him more than be was
fully aware of, for bis eyes followed
her, as she came and went, with a curious criticism of her half savage cou-
tume nnd her springy, dryad-like suppleness, which reminded hlin of the
shiest and gracelulest wild birds, and
yet a touch of refinement, the subtlest
nnd best, showed In all her ways. He
wondered nt her Influence over Father
Beret, whom she controlled apparently
Without effort. But in due time he began to feel u deeper character, a brand-
er Intelligence, behind her superficial
sauvagerie. and lie fouud that she
really had no mean smattering of bunks
iii the lighter vein.
A little tiling happened which further
opened his eyes and Increased tho Interest that lier In ..m.v and elementary

Falher Beret had got well and returned to his hill and bis round of
spliilunl duties. Inn Beverley cuiiiu to
Roussillon place every day all the
same     For a woudor. Urine. Roussillon
liked him and at most times held tbe
scolding side of ber tougue wben he
wns present. Jean, too, made friendly
advances whenever opportunity afforded. Alice found In Beverley a large target for the missiles of ber clever aud
tantalizing perversity. He In turn
practiced a native dignity nnd an acquired superiority of manner to excellent effect, lt was a meeting of Greek
witb Creek in a new Arcadia. To bim
here was Diana, strong, strange, simple, even crude almost to naturalness,
yet admirably pure In spirit and imbued with highest womanly asplra-
tiouR. To her Beverley represented the
great outside area of life. He came to
her from wonderland, beyond the wide
circle of houseless woods and prairies.
Now, there is an antagonism, vague
yet powerful, generated between natures thus cast together from the opposite poles of experience and education, an nntngonism practically equivalent to the most vigorous attraction.
The return to nature bas always been
the dream of the conventionalized soul,
while the simple Arcadian Is forever
longing for the maddening honey of
sophistication.

play leads buck to what so greatly surprised and puzzled Beverley one day
when he chanced to be examining tbe
pair of coleebeinardes on the wall.
He tore one down and, bundling It
wilh tbo Indescribable facility possible
to none save a practical swordsman, remarked;
"There's a world of fascination In
these tilings. I like nothing better
than a bout nt fencing. Does your father practice the art?"
"I have no falher, no mother," she
quickly said, "but good Papa Roussillon docs like a little exercise wilh
the coleebemarde."
"Well, I'm glad to bear lt I shall
nsk to teach bim a trick or two," Beverley responded In the lightest mood.
"When will be return from the woods?"
"1 can't tell you. He's very irregular
in such matters," she said. Then, with
a smile half banter and half challenge,
she added, "If you are really dyiug for
some exercise you shall uot bave to
wait for him to come home, I assure
you, M. Beverley."
"Oh, It's M. de Ronville, perhaps,
that you will offer up as n victim to
my skill and address," be slyly returned, for he was suspecting that a love
affair iu some stage of progress lay
between her and Reno.
She blushed violently, but quickly
overcoming u combined rush of surprise and nnger, added witb an emphasis as charming as lt was unexpected:
"I myself am, perhaps, swordsman
enough to satisfy the impudence and
vanity of M. Beverley,' lieutenant In
tbe American army."
"Pardon me, mademoiselle; forgive
me, I beg of you," he exclaimed, earnestly modulating bis voice to sluccrest
beseechinent. "1 really did uot menu ta
be Impudent nor"—
Her vivacity cleared with a merry
laugh.
"No apologies, I command you," the
Interposed. "Wo will have them after
I hnve taught you a fencing lesson.".
From a shelf she drew down a pair
of foils and, presenting the hilts, bade
bim take bis choice.
"There Isn't any difference between
them that I know of," sbe said, and
then added archly, "but you will feel
better ut last, wben nil Is over and the
sting of defeat tingles through you, lf
you are conscious of Inning used every
sensible precaution,"
He looked straight Into her eyeB, trying to catch what was In her mind, but
there wits u bewildering glamour playing across those gray, opal tinted wells
of mystery, from which he could draw
only a mischievous smile glint, direct,
daring, irresistible.
"Well," he suid, taking one of tbe
foils, "what do you really mean? Is lt
a challenge without room for honorable
retreat?"
"The time for parley ls past," she replied.  "Follow me to the battle ground."
She led tbe way to a pleasant little
court In tho renr of the cabin's yard, a
space between two wings and a vine
covered trellis, beyond which lay a
well kept vineyard and vegetable garden. Here she turned about and faced
blm, poising ber foil with a fine grace.
"Arc you ready?" she Inquired.
He tried again to force a way Into
the depths of ber eyes with his, but ho

so be stood In a confusion of not very
well defined feelings, uudcclded, hesitating, half expecting thai there wointi
he some laughable turn to eud Ibe affair.
"Are you afraid, M. Beverley?" she
demanded  after u  short waiting lu
silence.
lie laughed now und whipped the nlr
Willi Ids foil.
"Vou certainly are not lu earnest?" he
said Interrogatively; "Do you really
mean that you want to fence with me?"
"If you think because I'm only a
girl ynu can easily heat me, try it,"
she tauntingly replied, making a level
thrust toward his breast.
'Quick as a flash be parried, and then
a merry clinking and twinkling of steel

that he bad probably more than bis

"Keep it," lie said, folding his arms
and trying to look unconcerned; "you
have captured it fairly. I am at your

"Mme. Roussillon and Jean, the
hunchback, hearing the racket of the

standing agape.
"You ought to be ashamed. Alice."
snid the dame In scolding approval of
what sho had done. "Girls do nut fence

"This girl does." snld Alice.
"And wilh extreme disaster to this
gentleman," said Beverley, laughing In
a tone of discomfiture und resignation,
"Ah, m'sieu', there's nothing .hut disaster where she goes," ,'oniplalned
Mme. Roussillon. "She is a destroyer
of everything. Only yesterday sho
dropped my pink bowl and broke it,

"And just to think." said Beverley,
"what would have been the condition

Instead of leather buttoned fnils! She
would have spitted It through Ihe very

"Like enough." replied (be dnine Indifferently. "She wouldn't wince,

When Beverley, taking his leave,
passed through the gate at Roussillon
place, he met Rene de Ronville going
iii. It was a notable coincidence that
each young man felt something troublesome rise In his throat as h. looked
Inlo the other's eyes.
A week of dreamy autumn weather
came on. during which Beverley mnn-
aged   to  be  with   Alice  n   great  deal,
mostly silling on tlie Roussillon gallery,
Where   the   fading   vine   leaves   made
fairy whisperings, and where tbe tempered breeze blew dellclnusly eeol rrum
over  the  distant  multicolored   woods. '
The men of Vincennes were gathering i
their Indian corn early to dry it ou the I
cob for grating into winter meal. Many ■
women   made  wine   from   the  native j
grapes and from the sweeter and richer ;
fruit of Imported vines.    Mrs. llollssil- i
Ion  and  Alice  stained  tmil' hands  a |
deep purple during tlio pressing season i
and Beverley found himself engaged ill !
helping  them   handle  the Juicy  crop,
while around the overflowing caribou i
pots the wild bees, wasps and hornets j liberty
hummed   with   an   Incessant,   jarring ! iu a   i
her face growing BClioUS.
There was au awkward silence.
She had touched Rene's vulnerable
spnl. Ho was nothing If riot a devout
Calhnlie, and his conscience rooted itself in what good Falher Beret had
taught him.
Falher Beret wns the humble, self
effacing, never tiring agent nf good in
his community. He preached In a tender singsong voice the sweet mount-
unlcs of his creed and the sublime
truths nf Christ's Code. He was Indeed the spiritual father of his people.
No wonder Rene's scowling expression
changed to one of abject self concern
when the priest's nnme was suddenly
connected with bis mood. The cuufos-
slonul loomed up before the eyes of his
conscience and-Ids knees smote together, spiritually if not physically.
"Now," said Alice brusquely, but with
sweet nud genlle firmness, "go to ynur
fiancee, go to pretty and good Adrienne,
and ask her to he your paiienaire.
Refresh your conscience with n noble
draft of duty niuT make that dear
little girl overflow with joy. Go, Rene
do Ronville."
Rene   felt   his  soul   cowering,   even
slinking,  hut  he   fairly   maintained  a
gnnd face, and went nway without say- j
lug another word.
"del. del, how beautiful she Is!" be j
thought as be walked along the nur- '
row   sli I   In   the   dreamy   sunshine
"But she Is nut for me, not for inc."
He shunk himself nnd tried In be
cheerful,   in fact he bummed a Creole
ditty, something nbout "La belle Jean-
et te, qn' a blise mnn cirur."
Davs passed, and at last the lime «f
tne grent event arrived. It was a
frosty night, clear, sparkling with
stars, n keen breath cutting dnwn from

It was like an eagle dancing with

the   big  lieutenant   led   out  In  petlff

houor of Beverley's attention sat unappreciated on Adiienne's mind, for all

The Maritime Alps of Eastern
France have been noted us being the
haunt of the most ferocious and
powerful breed of eagles iu existence.
Children innumerable havo been
carried off by them, und they even
attack adults ou occasions, sometimes with dire results.
A postman named Gustave Silva,
who carried the mails on foot between the villages ol Sospullo and
I'uget Theniers, was set upon while
crossing the puss by threo large
buds and frightfully injured.
He managed to drive oil his winged assailants with the aid of his
alpenstock und eventually reached
his destination with his bag of letters. But his cuse was from the
fil'St regarded as hopeless by the local doctors, and after lingering in
indescribable agony for six duys he
succumbed   to  his  wounds.
.Meuuwhile two young French tourists, Messrs. Joseph Montind and An-
toine Neyssel, went up into tho
mountains to try to kill the birds
that had done tlio damage und were
Savagely attacked in their turn.
il;itli men were armed, but the smith n onslaught of the hugo winged
creatures completely unnerved them,
and ufter firing only one shot tbey
tried to escape by running.
Ihe birds, however, struck them
down ere they had gone many yards,
und they would  bave- doubtless been
but.h  torn  to  pi s  where    they  lay
but for the opportune arrival of a

PAINFUL RHEUMATISM.
This Trouble Is CmiHial by an Acid In   th*
nioori, und Can Only be Cured Through
the Blood.
Rheumatism Is caused by an acid
in the blood. That is a medical
truth every sufferer from this trouble
should beur in mind. Liniments and
outward applications cannot cure
what is rooted in the blood—the disease must be cured through the
blood. Thut is the reason rheumatism yields tilmost like magic to Dr.
Williams Pink Pills. This new blood
conquers the painful poison, sweeps
out the aching acid, soothes the
nerves, loosens the muscles and banishes rheumatism, Mr. Robert Morrison, one of the best known aud
most esteemed residents of Guelph,
Out., gives striking testimony to the
truth of the statements made above,
lie says: "My trouble came gradually and was pronounced muscular
rheumatism, and was locuted chiefly
iu niy nock and shoulders. I can

Liver disorders nro ttlso a frequent
cause of kidney disease, and this
helps to account for the extraordinary success of Dr, Chase's Kidney-
Liver l'ills as a cure for complicated
und chronic disease of the kidneys.
Since the kidneys aro tho chief
means of removing the poisonous impurities from the system tbey must
be ke.pt healthy und uctivo.
When from any of tho above causes
tho kidneys become deranged tbo
first symptom is usually tmckucho.
Then is the time to begin tbo use of
Dr,  Chase's Kidney-liver Pills.
Tho very thoiight. of the usual development of kidney disease is
enough warning lo any one to luUo
prompt action, and there is the testimony of thousands to point you to' J
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver l'ills ob
the most effective treatment.
Mr. William IO. Hold Itch, Port
Robinson, (Int., states: "1 was tor
several years a grunt sufferer from
kidney trouble, Iroin which dread di
sease I am now, happily, freo. I had
all the usual symptom., in an aggravated degree, and at times was completely incapacitated with pains in
the buck, biliousness and headache.
1 had littlo or no ajipetite; insomnia
resulted, and my condition was really wretched. I became emaciated
and grew despondent and hopeless of
relief, ns 'I had taken treatment
from doctors to no uvall.   "
"Finally, ou the udvice of a friend,
I began using Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills, and, after using a few
boxes, 1 was again enjoying health
and vigor, as tho worst symptoms
hud entirely passed away. When I
think of my present good health, In
comparison with my miserable condition of throe years ago, I would
not go buck to my former state for *
any amount of money. I may be
considered enthusiastic over Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, but, considering tho benefit derived from
thein, I huve every reason to be."

Thure is, however, one eomplole
chnugo Ibid this Season has brpugbl
about aud that is the neat look to th.
fig-die. Gowns now must fit instead
Of bag aad Iho waistline is much closer
t inn heretofore;
This means naturally a higher bust
and broader shnuldor i fleet obtained by
the lung corsage cuirass of the eighteenth
century, the deep corselet and the ample
hut short balloon sleeve which stands
out bravely above the elbow.

of hip yok"s j.i one of preference. The
closer hip effects seems to be generally

fow women that need bouffant offocts
in this direction, but, there is every
attempt to make tho lower part of th.

Before I despair;
Before I sink under

There must.ho a morn:
So I'll wait for tbe dnyliglit,

The brightest nnd fairest
Of morrows to me.
Tho birds may be singing,
The blossoms-may start
In I loom and in beauty:
Be patient, O heart!

Before 1 give rip;

The.dregs from the cup.
Stilling watching, still hoping,
Still longing for day,
I'll wait a whilo longer.

Optimism.
O memory mine, why scenes retaiu
Which yield me but regret and pain?
And why, my troubled soul, this fear
Of fancied evils drawing near,
That mar my iieuce?
Sometimes this world lias   seemed so
drear,
So void of things to please and cheer;
But then, I bucks, (iod mode it right,
And I hnve had perverted sight,
And seeu things wi" ng.
Henceforth I'll lot tbo past alone,
To hold aud hoard what is ils ow n.
And leave kind Heaven to decree
The changes that arc best for me,
Aud fear no ill.
When flowers bloom uud scent the uir
My eager hands shnll pluck I heir share.
And mellow fruits fall at my feet
I'll pick the best and freely eat
VVitli grateful heart.
When friends I love nnd trust betray
I'll brush my cntli, ring tears away
And turn and love Ihe faithful more
Than I bud le,,rued to Iovo before
Aud still  be glial
In age I'll keep my childhood's trust
As miser hoards his yellow dust;
And when my pilgrimage shall end
I'll meet death as au angel friend
That brings sweet rest.
