The only explanation, Conservatives  here can muster as to the above is that  it is an attempt to revive the drooping  spirits of the Quebec Liberals.

He  v.; as whistling cheerily, despite the great  liiithlny heal, for was he not going along  the mail where old Nito's olive garden  was? Very likely Nella would,be working  (here this" morning, and they could rest  a little and eat theii" frugal dinner'together if she were. Nella was the bcau-  tv of the village and was going to marry  his couHn Loti. but that did not matter  lo IV:io. Loti was away iib .Naples,  wo:*l*,i:ig hard there to make the money  in I'm nil-h their little home with.  Kut today I'erio was not quite so sat-  i������u>l as u'-.t'ial. He'had not the slightest  ohiiviir-n to Nella's flirting with him  when Loii wa<> away," but when it came  to her bestowing, soft glances on aiiother  ���������man, then he began to burn iu righteous  anger' ami resentment against her treatment of his cousin.'  Jiist at this moment his train of thought  'was disturbed by a voice ringing in one  of tho olive gardens a  little l'arther up  tho  hill���������a   voice  that  made, the  mail's  eyes gleam  and'his whcio  frame .thrill,  y.'ilh .animation���������Nella's voice!    Ile'stqp-  .r.ed his mr.lcs a inor.ie'nt and, putting his  hand'  mighJ  ,    "At  down  'mule:  lo' his mouth s<o that tho sound  travel fail her, cried:  I.i, Nella. it's almost noon. Come  and'you'shall ride on one of the  to the trees, and we can eat together."  - The door of one cl the nearer gardens  opened, and Nella came out.  ' "No,o I'erio," she said; "I've oaten already.0 It's p'ast lidou.   Besides, I'm in a  hurry.    I'm going to sit for the gentleman   who's painting me' this  afternoon.  I'm.going up to the convent now."  .   Perm's   face  darkened,   and   his  eyes  tool: the sharp, stealthy look of anger so  lii tie brings at ence to'an Italian face,  b  "Does. Loti know you, sit for this English a i list':"      t  "Ile'lmow I was going to sit," returned  the urn I. "hut what, docs-it matter lo  you?" And she cast on Perio a look of  ill concealed contempt.  That look soeuznl to madden the .man,  who suddenly fr^cd'hito a great rage.  ���������'See, my Nella,"* he said,, taking her  'roughly by the arm. "You would never  look at me or even Oauce with uie, though-  Loti is my cousin, while he is away, and  >ct you spetv.I 'hours* silling "with this  Engl'isliman. silling lo him ,;half miked,  too'?' he added, wilh a sneer! "Ah, yes,  1 know:"' as Nella staited indignantly.  '"The old man who takes wood to (he  holy <;o;ivc;:l lo.Id me, as an Egyptian  queen, will! only a skirt and jewels and  a gold snake in your hair. How will Loti  like that when I tell him tonight?" , And  he bent I'orwatd with a coarse laugh.  "Tonight?," ,she started. "You tell  Loti tonight V"'  "Ah! I didn't mean ,to tell you, but Loll  is coining tonight. I know he is. L  heard it in the town." and he pointed to  where the white city lay at the foot of  the hill. ."Ho will he here tonight and  1 sliail see him. Yes, and I will tell him  'how you sit lo this painter. Nella, unless���������  unless"��������� 'He hold out his arms "and the  ���������revenge died out of his'face. "Nella, I  love"���������  lou spy  ���������! You cur!" she broke out.  I despise you! You question the  poor old man at the convent. Then you  threaten me and offer me youivloye. Your  love! What woman would accept Mho  love of a reptile?" Sho turned and  walked majestically down the road.  "Nella!"  he screamed,  beside himself  with rage.   "Nella, you call me a reptile?  You shall pay' for this!    I will tell Loti  as soon as he enters tho Jown, I will"���������  "I will tell him myself first," said the  girl, turning round scornfully. ��������� Sho  .walked slowly down the road, and Pc.iio  stood watching her, rooted to the spot  and mad with rage nnd jealousy. Was  it true? Was she nfraidof what he  could tell Loti, or hud the old man told  him lies? Ah, what would lie give to see  her face! Suddenly, as if in dotiancc* of  him, she broke forth into her song again,  the pong she had been singing in the olive  garden: ,"Sulla, Bulla labre, so potossi.  do Ice un back) im hacio!" '  I'erio tinned white with anger. "I understand!" he shouled hoarsely^ "You  sing of kisses. You go to the kisses of  your lover." Hut she took no notice, only  walked on sloadily, a queen of women,  along that dusly road. The man clinched  his hands and .almost pushed the mules  forward, lie would take them homo t\T  once and hurry back to tlie town. He  would see Loli first, after all.  Nella walked on in the great summer  heat. It did not seem to hurt her. She  was a real child of the sun. No heat was  too great for lier. not even the heat within, which was burning fiercely just then.  "Perio spoke of love kisses," sho was  thinking. "How lii Ho ho knows the  truth! Gerald, Gerald," sho lisped n  little over the "hard foreign name. "How,  I love him! If he would only kiss mo  once! How easy it would be to die if ho  had once held me in his arms, if he had  once called me love���������to die"��������� And a  tremor ran through her. "Yes, that is  the end. I must die! I can never belong  lo Loti now. I cannot see him again.  Hut he is coming tonight," as the thought  struck hor.J "Loti coining.tonight!. What  shall I do? Whaleyer shall I do?'-', She  walked (dowly down the prange grove  leadiiig'to the convent door and tapped at  jt.gently.    . y   .���������  , 'Vl'oii '.lire lalo todny, Nella,*!" said t&������;  "Signor Vavasour  you. Are you ill,"  "How   white  you  sister who opened it.  has been waiting for  child?"  she   added,  look!"  "It is nothing, sister.*'  "It is well this is the last lime you  come," the sister said 'Kindly. "The walk  here in the heat is too much for you.,  But make haste, and dress uow. Don't,  "keep him waiting longer."  , Nella smiled slightly as she began to  lake her things off.' The heat was too  much for her���������for her, who had worked  in the" fields right through the hottest  summer day without feeling it!  Slowly she dressed herself iu the costume Mr. Vavasour had chosen for her  as Cleopatra���������a costume which showed  her magnificent southern beauty to its  very greatest advantage.  "He must love me���������he must love me today," she whispered to the brilliant black  eyes that looked back at her from the  tiny glass. And so she passed into the  cloister. ��������� .    -  Gerald Vavasour had elected to paint  her, and'to paint her as Cleopatra, with  a great tiger skin at her feet, leaning  against the massive stone carving of the  gray old cloister pillars. And she certainly made a vision of rare beatify as  she sat as he had placed her, looking  straight at, him, her chin buried in "one  shapely hand, the other loosely holding a  huge fan of peacock feathers. And he, as  he.Jookcd into those eyes, which, bright  ' with love or triumph, looked into the.  depths of his own, began lo think that if  Cleopatra had really looked so, then no  wonder that Antony sacrificed fame and  honor and all for her.  It had'hoon dillicull work to get the1  prim old sisters of. tho convent to let him  paint her there, in the center of their old  gray cloister, hut no other place' had  made such an ideal background, and the-  promise of a large donation to then-  school had at length persuaded them.  And, besides,' was it not Nella-their  littlo Nella, who-had sung iu their choir  -since she was a child, and whom they  knew to be good and true?  Nella thought it all over in a dull, mechanical sort" of way as she sat and  gazed at the man she ��������� loved this last  "afternoon. What would the sisters say  when they heard the end? And she felt  the end was close upon'her. That subtle,,  heavy presentiment that sometimes comes  over us human creatures that a crisis,  the crisis of our lives, is fast approaching came over Nella that afternoon as  she sat in her regal trappings ,and put a  wistful, prophetic look into ihe, soft eyes  and look away her voice, and sho sat silent in all her glory.  "How quiet you ate today, Nella!" he  said gently. "Are you sorry it's our las.t  Bitting?"  "Yes, milord," she answered simply.  "Are you?"  lie looked at her! What was that ,in  her lone, that new softness, that tremulous little break? And as he looked at  her he saw a difference, even l'roui yesterday���������the difference between the bti 1  and the blossom, the sign of that southern  temperament, that in one supreme moment changes lhe g'i'l into the peife.t  woman. And she was a. perfect womaa  ns she sal there in half barbaric splendor,  her scarlet lips slightly parled, as tlmtiirh  she would speak, but could not: nothing  but the glitter of the jewels on her arms  and the Hashes of her deep eyes showing  she was no statue.  And as Gerald Vavasour looked into  those eyes he understood what had  changed her. , He saw her secret, and a  great thrill swept over him���������she loved  him, this superb woman, this queen who.  looked at him as a slave looks at its master���������she loved him! Dot his love was  buried in a grave thousands of lniles  away,-and an in ton sor wave of pity overcame him, for the look in those eyes was  the look he felt come into' his own when  ho thought of that grave..-  "Nella," he said, going up to her and  taking   her   hands- half   unconsciously,  "don't look like that.    I am heartbroken.  ,1 never thought"���������  "I will not see you again, milord. No,  I am ,not ashamed that you know I love  you,'' she said. "Will you kiss mo once  before I go?"  Her lingers strayed lightly over, his'  hair, aud the touch of her, soft, warm  arms around his neck held him for a moment,'and he laid his lips upon her face  and kissed her again and again. Then  suddenly, as a rush of remembrance  passed over him. he put her back almost  roughly and, going to his easel, said,'  without looking at her again: ,  "The sitting is over.   I have finished!"  *        *        *        *        ���������?        *        *  Nella slopped on the bridge as she wa-l  going homo half iiii hour later. In tho  'dim evening lights she could just see the  white water lilies al the etljre of the  stream lower down. ,"It would be good  to lie there," she said, below her breath,  "so quiet and peaceful."  A little girl louched her arm. "Come  quickly home, Nella." she said, her breath  gone with running. "Loti is come-.���������  "Loti!" said Nella. passing her hand  over her eyes, "Loti come already?"  Then she drew' herself -up suddenly.  "Thank you. Gemma, for coming to t. II  me. Go hack and say I'm coming. Here's  my bracelet if you run quickly," and she  took the heads off her arm and gave them  to her, and the child, with a cry of du-  light, was gone in a moment.  Nella walked down to the water's edge  aiid pushed the great rushes aside. "No  one shall touch mc again." she murmured, covering her eyes, "since he kissed  , me���������he kissed me.''���������Anglo-American.  StOCU.R p.H.
