Jane Coombs in Bleak House
and Camille.
There are plays that elevate the
stage and actresses who adorn the dramatic platform with a. famo that "is
imperishable. Among the former is
Charles Dieken's dramatized "Bleak
House.' Among the latter none shine
with inoro resplendent lustre than
Miss Jaue Coombs whose matchless
renditions of Lady Dedlook and Hor
tense are world renowned. This grand
play will be presented here with this
great aotress on Nov. IG and 17. This
will be tho first dramatization of Dickens presented here, with oue of the
most cultured and gifted interpreters
of female characters ou the American
stage.
The friends of standard drama,   our
oittizens generally and evory college or
I most Camilles, to overdo the part,
especially in the more emotional
scenes, seeming not* to appreciate the
beauty and the tenderness of emotion.
Miss Coombs' acting is free from such
blumishes. Her more affective scenes
aro mellowed by a common sympathy
with humanity that brings the character iuto life, as it were, making us
experience all those emotions and sympathies which the reality of the picture would call forth.
The iuterview with Monsieur Duval
when he appeals to her in behalf of
Armand's sister, and imploros her if
she loves Armand to leave him, could
not fail to win the sympathy of the
audience. Camille loves Armand.
Around   him   cluster    her    brightest
high school student and overy voting
man aud woman of culture should
read "Bleak Houso' and then see Miss
Janet Coombs in the wonderful erections of Lady Dedlook and Horten-se
supported by her magnificent company.
MACAULAY'S THEATRE.
In saying that '"Camillo" is the
best, play we havo from tho French,
we do not recall a single exception.
It is natural in its conception and interesting in its developments, while
its incidents are worked up with nn
ability aud an appreciation for dramatic powor aud beauty, which is
sadly wanting in nearly all tho new
plays that find their way to the stage.
It is uot of the plify that wo dosiro
to sponk, but. of Miss Coombs' impersonation of Camilo. It was natural,
beautiful, free from over-coloring and
at times, so affecting ns to movo tho
audience to tears.     It  is  a fault wih
hopes; with him the world is nil
brighness and joy; without bim tho
reverse ; but when called unon to sacrifice all to prove hor love, she nerves
herself for the tusk. The anguish such
a sucrifico costs is not only portrayed
iu tears and trembling voice, but is
pictured in hor countenance.
Seldom has the Louisville stage produced anything so natural, beautiful,
and a (fool ing.    What  wo   say   of  this
! scene    will   apply   to   all   tho   later.

and seeing her eniaeialod faco, realizes tho frightful reality that death

THE BITTNER THEATRE CO.
On Saturday night the Bittner Theatre oompany gave thoir last performance in Nelson, producing "La Belle
Marie" for the second time by special
request. Tho piece had croatod a
great deal of favorable comment tlie
first time it was played, and tho
crowded house on Saturday night wns
a substantial proof of its popularity,
As La Belle Marie, Miss Mattie Choate
repeated her hit of a woek ago. Superbly gowned, she made a very boautiful appearance as the fascinating
French woman, playing the part to the
life. Mrs. Bittuer was as charming a
Grace aB ever, while Miss.Milly Stevens deserves special mention for hor
rendition of the part of Edith. Mrs.
Kelly took the soubrette part of Mado-
line with her acoustomed vivacity.
W. J. Fredericks played the part of
Mr. Leighton, the old father, exceptionally well, as did W. W. Bittue ,
us the villain and seducer, George
Leighton, nud Lew Rose kept the houso
in convulsions by his queer unties ns
Stubbs, the stammering office boy 111 d
footman. J. Waldron made a verv
good Earl Leighton, aud E. B. Kelly
was amusing as over as Byron Waupingee.
After leaving Rossland the Bittner
rrapany go to Wardnei,   Idaho,   hop
ing to rotimi horo to open tho now
opera houso which is being built liy
tho Allen Bros. The peoplo of Nolson
are sorry thoy hnve gone, and the company are sure of a hearty welcome
when they return.

WOULD HIED
Emperor William and the
Protestants.
HIS PLAN MISCARRIED
Obstacles Thrown in the Way of His Becoming the Head of the United
Ohuroh in Germany.
Berlin, Nov. 12.���It has now become
known that Emperor William, amoug
other objects in view, desired to utilize his trip to Jorusalein to reunite
German Protestantism, now split into
a score of factions, and establish his
office ot summus episcopis, nowj held
merely over the evangelical church
of Prussia, over the whole of Protestant Germany. Before starting for
Palestine, the Emperor thoroughly
discusBod tho idea with the highest
dignitaries of the Prussian church.
Dr. Vou Burhausen, Dr. Ysander, and
others, and also approached the church
authorities of the other German
states. The omperor firmly believed
he could realize his plan, but nevertheless, tho project uttorly miscarried.
Tbe grand Duke of Baden replied to
the omperor that existing circumstances mado it impossible for tho
other Protestant prinoes of Germany
to yield to the emperor's wishes.
This abortive idea of his majesty, it
appears, was responsible for the fact
that none of tho reigning German
princes wns willing to accompany him
to Palestine, nit bough they so far
yielded as to send in behalf of each uf
them, au authorized representative of
the stale church.

Russian Opinion on an Interesting Matter.
TO   BELITTLE  BRITAIN
Count Oassani Denies That England Prevented European Intervention in the
Spanish-Amerioan War.
Washington, Nov. 13.���Referring in
an interview to the Philippines, Count
Ca-sini, the Russian ambassador, said
that Russia, naturally had geat interest, iu the status of these islands, owing to their proximity to the eastern
possessions of Russia. There was no
warrant, however, he said, for the re
ports coming from Paris, that Russia
had beeu appealed to by Spain with a
view to limiting tbe claims of the Un
ited States in tbe Philippines. No
such appeal had been made to Russia
or to other foreign governments.
Throughout the.recent war Russia had
maintained the most friendly attitude
toward the United States, and the am
bassador snid thnt he did not doubt
this would have a good effect in con
tinning tlm friendship which has so
long existed beween Russia aud the
[Jutted States. In this connection,
Count Cassini took issue with the prevailing public view that England
showed hor conspicuous friendship for
tho United States during a critical
statu of tho war with Spaiu by declining to join the great powers of Europe
in a move for intervention. Tbe am
bassador says he has seen this report
frequently and it seems to be accepted in this country as a part of the
history of the.recont war, and as *he
basis for much applause tor luigiaiei
at the expense of the other great powers of Europe, but Count Cassini says
that no such action on the part of
Groat Britain ever took place and that
the impeachment of the continued
freindliness of other powers is due to
misapprehension of the facts. At no
time, he says, was there a purpose ou
the pait of tho great powers to intervene against tho action of the United
States, so that there was never any
occasion for such a display of English
friendship iu checking the designs of
tho great powers as is generally presented. Count Cassini says that the
story although very widely circulated
nud generally accepted as fact, is
nothing less than a fable aud that for
tho truth of history, as well as for tho
removal ot this groundless reflection
upon tho attitude of the Europeun
powers toward tho United States, this
fable should not bo accepted as a part
of the record of the war. He does not
give this morely as a personal opinion
but as au established fact, learned during his visits to Pnris nnd Berlin, as
well as to St. Petersburg. While in
uo way reflecting upon any other powor, tbo Russian ambassador fools that
it is but simple justice to Russia and
other continental powers that the consistent friendship they maintained . towards tbo United States, throughout
ovory period of tho war aud continue
to maintain towards this government
should not be obscured by any sentimental flotion as to tho exceptional
friendship of one nation aud tho enmity of others.
THE LAST FAREWELL
The Attendance at the  Quebec  Meeting to Soo the Aberdeens off.
Qnebeo,   Nov.    12.���Lord   Abordeon
said  farewell to the people of Quebec
last night and will sail on tho Labrador for Liverpool. The Scotsman,
bringing Lord Minto, will be here at
2 :lll) p. in. today.
Tho attendance at tho city hall to
witness the presentation of the farewell
address was rather less than eipectod.
Tbo civic address, read hy Mayor Parent, was a tribute to tho high personal
qualities of the vice regal couplo and
it added: "From our sunlit holds,
from our thriving cities and towns,
constantly ascend ou all sides tho congratulations of a people contented with
their lot, as loyal to England as their
sires wero to Franco and confidently
and steadily moving onward and upward towards the iichievemont of their
destinies."
In replying Lord Aberdeen said it
was a cli mux of all tho farewells he hnd
received. He pnid tribute to tbe loyalty of the French race, adding that
whatever might bo snid of thom, their
patriotism was appreciated aud understood by tlio sovereign.
Addresses were presented by tho St.
Andrews society, tho Irish Organizations and the Women's Council. To
tho last Lady Aberdeen replied in
French. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Hon.
Mr. Tarte were present.
UTE IN TBE DAY
TO LADB SALADIN
OF APPBOVAL
German Comment on theEm-
peror's Action.
THE   CHRISTIAN'S  FOE
It is Quite Evident That Emperor William
Made Himself Ridiculous in
This Mattor.
Berlin, Nov. 12.���Emperor William,
beforo leaving Damascus, made a
speech in which he exalted Saladiu as
one of the^nost knightly rulers of all
ages, and begged the Sultan Abdul
Hamid and his i!00 million Mohammedan followers to accept the assurance
that he, the emperor, would always be
their friend. His majesty also commanded his military attache to lay a
wreath on Saladin's sepulchre, inscribed, "To the memory ot the brave
and knightly Sultan."
The German emperor's enthusiasm
for Sultan Saladin does not appear to
be shared by Germany. The Vorwaerts at the risk of being prosecuted
for lese majesto. says: "Times have
ohanged. A former German emperor,
Barbarossa, lost his life in the Christian cause against this samo Saladin,
whom the ruler of a new German empire uow ceremoniously glorifies. Tlie
friendship between Tslnm and the
Kaiser, calling himself a Christian, is
now so ardent that the latter, af ti r
offering a prayer at the sacred birthplace of Christianity, now glorifies as
a hero and knight, without fear of
blame, the conqueror of the Holy Sepulchre, the bitterest enemy of Christianity and the exterminator of Christian rui**-* in Palestine,"
OF VALUE TO GERMANY.
Spain' Said to Ee Willing toISell Certain
Island Possessions in the
Pacific.
. Berlin, Nov. 12 ���It is understood in
diplomatic circles hero that Spain,
after the conclusion of a treaty of
peaco with tho United Statos, will try
to dispose of hor few remaining colonies, ) ably tho Mariana islands, the
Cnn lia i islands and Pula islands and,
it is supposed, that the Spanish government has already been cautiously
approached by Germany for tho purposo of ascertaining how much these
groups will be worth. The officials of
the foreign office here admit that the
acquisition of these Spanish colonies
would be of considerable value to Germany, in view of their proximity to
Gormauy's Australian possessions, but
they give no inkling as to their intentions in tbe matter.
NEW DENVER RESOLUTION.
The Citizens of Now   Denver  Pass   a
Rosolntiou Re Mr. Thompson.
The Minor hns received for publication, tho following resolution passed
at a meeting of citizens of New Den-
vor. hold OH Nov. 10,    IH!W:
"Whereas it is essential to honest
government that good and faithful
servants of the pooplo should be secure in thoir position, regardless of
political changes; and whereas Robert Thompson,u courteous and officiont
officer, has, against tho will of the
people, been discharged from office
without causo; this mooting profoundly deplores the said dismissal, and
considers it a violation of the priuci-
les on which a sound oivli sorvice is
based, and an attack upon popular
government"

Has a Close Call.
Mr. Glass of tho C. P. R. telegraph
company had a narrow eBcape yesterday ovening while coming ou his bi-
cyclo from Bonnington Falls. Bofore
leaving Slocau Junction Mr. Glass in
quired from the operator regarding
the probability of a train coming
along and was told that there would
bo nono along for a cousiderublu time.
Bofore his arrival, howover, at Nelson
he heard a freight train coming behind him aud made a spurt to reach a
point whoro he could safely leave the
track. The train kept rapidly gaining and in applying the brake to stop
his machino, Mr. Glass got his hand
caught in a cog wheel, aud had several lingers of his right hand badly
brnisod. He managed to throw his
machine off the track aud was brought
to the oity where his wounds were
dressed by Sr. Hall.
Of the Expansion Policy of
the U. S.
A UNITY OF INTERESTS
It is Expooted That in Becoming Owners
ofthe Philippines the Americans Will
Eespeot the "Open Door"-
Londou, Nov. 12.���During the past
week the United States has occupied
the attention of Europe to a greater
degree than nt ary other time since
the battles of Santiago. The entry of
the American republic iuto the arena
of eastorn colonization has attracted
widespread and varied attention and
never before have the issues of au
American election beeu so generally
and eagerly canvassed aud so intelli
gently commented upon. The supposed
endorsement ot the so-called expansion
polioy by tbe electors of the United
States has communded a chorus of approval in Great Britain, while the
journalistic spokesmen in France, Russia, and Germany exhibit an equal unanimity of disapproval
On tho ovo of tho eleotiou the Marquis of Salisbury throw tho chauoel-
le.'ios of Europe a p"rtentiously ambiguous phrase, whieh thoy iinve uot yet
succeeded iu satisfactorily dissecting.
Then camo Emperor William's change
of course toward the Spanish shores,
in which Europeans arc quick to discover political portends, the movements of tho royalties being construed
as an exhibition of pro-Spauish sympathy.
The Marquis of Salisbury remains so
loyal a devotee to tlie old style  of  di-
. M-L-^dfo-oy,   WwjOjv tMirJ#8vD'*5   WOnVS  HJ CtllT-
fuse meanings, that his deliverances
frequently inspire as many discordant,
interpretations as there are interpreters. But thoro ure no proofs whate"er
in support of any construction of hia
latest declaration imparting a warning
or unfriendliness to the United States.
On the contrary, all signs point to u
unanimous welcome of the United
States entrance upon the role of a Philippine landlord from the English government and people, though it is accompanied by the assumption, which
the London Times this morning emphasises, that oui unity of interests in
that quarter of tho globe depend upon
tho maintenance of tho policy of tho
open door. The Amorican attitude
towards the Philippino islands is also
i ertainly welcomed by the British
companies engaged in developing Iho
islands. These companies in anticipation of a stable, honest government
aro already taking steps to eulargo
their enterprises. This is notably
tho caso with the Manila Railroad
oompany, controlled by English capitalists, which is projecting au extension of its lines. Outside of all this,
it is highly improbable that tho Mar-
quiB of Salisbury would publicly an-
tagonize tbe widespead sentiment of
his countrymen that British und
American interests go baud in hand,
and the correspondent of the Associated Press hero has good authority for
assorting that ho did not intend to.
Moreover, the correspondent, learns
that communications or conversations
between English aud American diplomats have occurred recently in which
a recognition of this identity of interests was displayed, [though, so far as
can be learned, the discussions did not
go to tho length of pledges of help or
plans for a concert of action in any
contingencies. Whilo the Spaniards
aro unquestionably hugging the hopo
of finding a friend aud protector in
Emperor William of Germany, the
Loudon diplomats accept his majesty's
disclaimers, arguing that tho whole
trend of British uud German policies
is converging, particularly since the
friendly apportionment of tho sphereB
of Influence In Africa, aud that the
emperor, believing his interests to lie
in the Anglo-American lathor than in
tho Franco-Russian camp, will uot
show nny disposition to iluplicute his
President Kruger telegram.
If tho Marquis of Salisbury's spoech
mado clear any faot it was that Great
Britain does not intend to diminish
her armament, regardless of tho czar's
proposals in that, direction. The energetic pushing of the work of putting
the British navy on a war footing
aftor the Fashoda incident is cloBed,
inspires speculation, somo construing it as foreboding war over the Philippino islands, and others linking it
with the Chineso problem and tho
prosonco of 40,000 Russians at Port
Arthur who might conceivably he
niiirohed to Pekin for the protection
of Russian interests.
Others, however, conclude that; tlm
British admiralty is utiliziug the'"opportunity for manoeuvres for which
parliuuieut, under calmer conditions,
would not authorize the expenditures.
Franco's view of the British armaments may be conjectured from the
persistency with which she plays Toulon against Portsmouth. ieait*6bt:#,i

THE CIVIL SERVICE.
Iu a receut speech Lord Aberdeen
took occasion to give some advice regarding the civil service. There is a
marked dissimilarity between the civil
service in this uountrv and that iu
Great Britain. Under the system
pursued in tho old laud, merit, based
upou the results of special examination, is the ouly recommendation that
carries weight with tho authorities
in filling vacancies in the civil service. In Canada political influence,
or what is vulgarly called political
"pull," seems to override all consider
atious of fitness in selecting porsous to
fill positions. Lord Salisbury aud Mr.
Chamberlain, who could, if they
wished it, have moro purtonage at
their disposal than any public meu in
the world, would not think of appointing or eveu recommending any
oue for government employment'.
There, all persons intending to enter
tbe civil sorvioo must undergo certain
special training aud pass a creditable
examination, upou which their names
go on tho list autt thoy are takeu as
thev come when thore are auy vacancies to bo filled. Thore may bo cases
where mombors of parliament or influential persons may push forward a
candidate, but as to creating a vacancy
for l.im, such is Against the genius
of British government at home, though
it    ia    Badly    tUtromifc   iu t),0 OUlonio-..
Thus Great Britain has  a   permanent^
force  aud   it   is   safe to say that it is
the   most   trustworthy   and  effective
civil service in existence
In Canada a show is made at competitive examinations for the civil service, but no matter how able the applicant for government employment
muy bo, he has little chance unless he
have political "influence. " It is the
rule in the United States, und carried
to an absurdity there, for a new administration at Washington to turn
out all offioials and fill the places wilh
thoso who wero serviceable in electing
the administration. "To the viotors
belong tho spoils," is an accepted
verity in the United Stntes, to which
meu of all parties aro expooted to defer and every new administration is
called upon to "turn the rascals out,"
presumably that anothor sot of rascals
may be turned iu. This is a vicious
principle of government uud would not
be tolerated in uny country where politics aro not a business to be followed
as a means of livelihood, as in the United States.
Canada has never openly adopted
this system, but it seems to be understood in tho political parties that the
offlcos are the reward of the workers,
and, accordingly, after every chango
of government, we hour of wholosalo
dismissals, with or without cause,
aud the appointment to tho vacancies
thtiB created of men in po itioal sympathy with tho government Both parties disclaim any suspicion of acting
upon tho "spoils" system, yet year
after year the dismissals go on, and
many men who have beoome proficient
in discharging the business of the
stato aro cut adrift to make way for
some ignorant tyros, whoso chief recommendation is that they proved
effective "barkers" for some jim-crow
politician out in the back townships.
Under this system, whioh should le
distinctly repudiated ns obnoxious,
members of parliament are pursued by
applicants for positions until they
have uo rest. At tbe present time
thore aro thousands of liberals who
think that Sir Wilfrid Laurior should
turn all appointees of tho last government out and put them in and there are
members of parliament, oven, who
do not think it discreditable to have
offices vacated that they may sejure
them for themselves. .
As it is the whole system of recommendation aud appointment is disgraceful and it Bhould be entirely
swept away. There should bo a speo-
ial training and examination for the
���orvico and all vacancies should bo filial from this list by tbe heads of departments without favor, and there
goould bo no dismissals without good
cause.    That is the only way to secure
Au   Okanagan   Engineer    is
Frightened by a Ghost.
As a rule the people of British Co
lumbia are too matter of fact and too
busily eugaged in the development of
the resources of the province to In
bothered by ghosts. A story however,
comes from the Okanagan which if
true shows that even among mountains the ghost sometimes walks.
One day last summer, a tramp accompanied by a big dog appeared at
the house of Engineer Hoare of the
Bteatuer Aberdeen, which runs on
Okanagan lako, near Vernon and was
given a glass of water. A short timo
afterwards his dead body was found
iu the mountains aud the coroner's
jury returned a verdict of death from
natural causes. Mr. Hoare now ro-
fuses to live in the houso any longer,
as according to the Vancouver World
the tramp's ghost has appeared to him
Beveral times at the identical spot
where ho gave him the glass of water.
A strange dog has also beeu seen at
the same spot since. The idea of somo
of the sottlers is that the man was
murdered aud that the ghost bus come
back to his last friend when iu the
flesh in order that nu investigation
may be made.

led Emperor William iu hia tour of the
Holy lands say that hetween that monarch's marvellous activity and the attentions of tho Turkish ollieials, who
rogarded the BcribeB as suspicious characters, thoy havo been Buffering a veritable martyrdom. One of them writes
thut he has beeu accustomed to follow
hounds afoot and has shared the fortunes of the American army iu Cuba,
but, he adds, those were mere pastimes
iu comparisou to following Emperor
William. The latter, it appears, cov
ered the sand load from Haifa to Jaffa
in two days, u dash seldom attempted
in less than threo days. Dead horses
strewed tho trail. Exhausted cavalrymen aud camels struggled into Jaffa
t!iroughou<| the night. Some of the
correspondents who wero invited to
witness the emperor's entrance into
Haifa from the yard of tho American
consulate, were driven off by the
Turks, in spite of tho protest of the
consul, and tho correspondent of an
Italian paper, who wrote that the Sultan was bankrupting his country to
entertain the emperor, whilo ho never
paid bis soldiers, was cast into prison
without uny charge being made
against him, and was beaten and
starved. He succeeded, however, iu
escaping by bribing some of the Turks
nnd now the Italian government has
demanded a heavy indemnity for the
correspondent's arrost aud ill-treatment.

On His Way Home From the
Holy Land.
HE HAS BEEN INVITED
Probably the United States Would Eesent
Suoh a Move While Peace Negotiations are Pending-
Berlin, Nov. 12.���The aunouuce-
ment that Emperor William will cnl
at Spanish ports ou his way home
from the Holy land has niven rise to
nil sorts of political speculations; especially, iu view of the stntemeut that
the Queen Regent of Spain has decided to send the Duke of Soloiiinyer with
an autograph letter to Cnrthageua inviting the German emperor to visit
Madrid aud to rejoin tlio imperial
yacht later nt Cadiz. Such an invitation, however, could only bo made
iu accordance with court etiquette if
its acceptauce had beeu previously so-
curocl, and it is cerain up to the present, that acceptauce has not been obtained. On tho contrary, while it is
evidont that Spain is keenlydesirons
that tho omperor should visit Madrid
aud in fact, attempts aro already being made to make capital out of the
mere faot that be will visit Spanish
ports, tho foreign ollice horo is doing
everything to throw cold wator ou
tho idea that his majesty has auy political end in view in touching at Spanish ports.
Tho foreign office appears to bo anxious to avoid any steps calculated to
wound public feeling in the United
Stntes, which, it is fully recognized
here, would resent a visit of the emperor to the Spanish ports while tho
peaco negotiations are still uucou-
cluded.

���-Jennie Peet in "Land of Sunshine."
A HERO.
It wm tne 10th of last November that I
first made his acquaintance.
Pcrhnps I had better say "their acquaintance." I was staying with Del
Giglio at his place near Florence, and that
afternoon 1 went on an exploratory walk.
One of the flrst things I saw was the
pair of them arm in arm.
They woro swaggering up and down the
dirty little Via Vlttorio Emanuele, thoir
red caps nicely adjusted over their cars and
their canvas trousers gracefully tucked into their yellow gaiters.
"Is there a regiment here?" I askodof
the blind beggar.
"Nossignore. Those two are home on
leave. They are off to Africa next week.
Holy Virgin bless you, slgnore I"
I had nothing to do tbat afternoon, so I
made friends with the two soldiers.
It was easy. An admiring glance, a
question or two, and it was done, and we
were soon seated ln front of tho cafe drinking red sirup out of eight sided glasses.
Tho taller of the two was the talker.
"Yes," he explained. "We go to serve
lapatria."
"Has the slgnore been to Africa? KoP
One of our lieutenants was onco thero, and
lt ls said that ho shot a lion���or was lt an
elephant, Vanni?"
"Tiger," answered the little brown one
briefly.
"Very Interesting," I said, lighting my
pipe. "Waiter, some cigars. And when
do you gof"
"We go back to Florence Monday and
we embark from Naples on Thursday."
It was always Luca who did the talking, Vanni sitting silently stirring his
sirup.
" I see you aro great friends,'' I remarked
presently. "You are lucky to bo going together."
Luca throv his arm affectionately about
Vuiini's shoulder and gave him a little
bug.
"Sisslgnore, we are friends since we
were babies.   Eh, VannIP"
Vanni grinned, screwing up his little
black eyes.   "Eh, altro," he answered.
" 'Nglorno, Gigina!" suddenly exclaimed my two warriors together, jumping up
aud bowing with much imprcsscment.
Gigina, a stoutly built, black eyed girl,
whom I knew to he thu daughter of tho
innkeeper, nodded gayly:
" 'Ngioruo," she returned, with a killing glance, which included both of them.
Then she passed on.
There wus an awkward silence,
"Bellina," I begun diplomatically. Luca
grinned nnd gavo a conquering twist to
his llttlo mustache.
Vanni shuffled his feet and swallowed a
great draft of sirup.
"Gigina is very beautiful," observed
Luca.    "We dunce together."
"You must make a very Hue couple," I
answered.
"Mmm! Non c'o male���not so bad.
Vanni is too short for her."
"But Vanni has lino shoulders," I ventured mildly.
Vunnl rubbod his nose with the back of
his hand.
"Sho weighs more than Luca," he said.
Luca sullied.    "Sho gavo me tho red
Tose she wore in her hulr at the fair."
"And you ibat it."
Vanni leaned his elbows squarely on the
llttlo table and grinned at his dearest
frlond.
'' Bah I'' retorted Luca angrily. " She will
give me anothor. You never had a rose,
flat nose!"
"���She walked from church with me on
Sunday, bandy Ioks," screamed Vunnl.
"Che! lieenuso I was with ASSUDta
Blfli. It ls well to iniike them jealous
BonietimtiS.    But you, son of a pauper!"
Tliey hnd rl-en mul wero feeing each
other across the table���Vunnl whito with
rage, Luca sneering nastily.
1 was aliout to interfere when Vanni
suddenly sat down.
"Wo are forgetting our compact, Lu-
chlniiiulo, "ho said,drawing a long breath.
Luca nodded.
"Thou art right, dear llttlo one." And
they shook hands,
"II slgnore will think us mad," said
Luca politely to me.
I raised iny hands in deprecation.
"Dlo niio!    I, too, was unco young, my
children," I answered, "and when ono l��
lnlove."
Luca jerked the tassel of his cap over
his ear and threw out liis eliest.
"E vero," hu said, with a self satisfied
air, "and wo are amoroso tutt' e due,
aren't we, Vanni?"
Vanni, who was of n much loss expan-
slvo nature, only grunted and nodded his
head.
"You see, "continued Luca as the greasy
waiter provided us with more sirup���"you
soo, we are both in love���oh, vory much
ln love with Gigina! Sometimes we have
almost hated each other on her account.
But wo aro mlgliurl amiol, and that would
be a pity."
I assented, and he resumed:
"Gigina, she is very teasing, vory gay.
She always says, 'Ono or the other.' That
ls very well, but, after all, even best
friends can't share a wlfo. Can thoy Vanni? So now wo go to the war, and when
wo come back she will take ono or the other of us. In the meantime we are always
loving friends."
Vanni held out his square brown paw,
and tho two men shook hands peacefully.
"The slgnore will understand that Gigina will marry the one who brings back
the most glory."
It was the taciturn Vanni who volunteered this information.
I rose. "Ebbene, good luck to you both,
and may tho be#t mnn win."
I shook hands with them and turned to
thom. Vanni cried like a baby as Ms
poor old mother clung to him. Luca strut
t-ed about, tossing his cock feathered head,
and telling of all the things he meant, to
do "down there." Gigina was gorgeous
ln a now flowered kerchief andagreen sat
ln corset.
"Goodby, my girl," said Luca, taking
her two hands in his. "I will return with
a medal.    You will be proud of me."
Ho wos certainly handsome, far handsomer than llttlo Vanni, who stammered:
"Addio, Gigina. May the Holy Virgin
bless you!"
Early In March Del Giglio had to go to
Pan Giorgio on some farm business, and I
went with him. Tho day after our arrlvul
thero was a great excitement In the vll
lag'e. Tho two soldiers were coming home.
I went to tho station, you may be sure.
When tho train arrived, there was a hush.
Then out of a third class carrlago stepped
Vunnl.
On tho step he turnod and half lifted
down In his arms Luca.
Poor.vnln Lucu! II Is right arm was gone
and ono of his beautiful eyes. Some ono
screamed.    It was the buxom Gigina.
The silence wus broken, and amid tho
ensuing clamor I stole away.
Tho next day at about 5 I strolled into
tho old cathedral. It was usually empty
at that hour, and I liked roaming about
In tho dusk. Suddenly 1 heard a sob.
Thero in frout of a little side altar knolt
a man.    It was Vanni.
"Poor boy I" I thought. "He ls praying
for his friend."
And I was moving quietly away when
he looked up and saw me.
"Ah, slgnore!" he orled.    "It is you?"
"Yes," I answered.    "What Is wrong?"
He crossed himself, rose hastily and led
me to a bench near by.
'' The slgnore ls kind," he said, still with
that pathetlo catch  In his voice, "and  ho
knew about���it���before.    He  will  help
mo?"
"Ho will try," I returned.   "Tell me."
"You have Been Luca, signore?"
"Yes."
"And���his gold watch?"
"Yos." Had not all the world���the
world, that is, of San Giorgio���scon the
watch and heard of tho story of how poor
young Lieutenant Allegrl had given it,
just beforo his death, to tho brave San
Glorglnno? Was lt not in The Giornalo?
Did not tho village throb with proud ex-
oitement over tho tale?"
"Yes," I answered again. "What
then?"
"Ebbene, it ls mine, slgnore���mine! It
was I who carried 11 pov;ro signore tenente
back from tho front under tho terrible rain
of fire. It was to mc ho gave tho watch.''
"But then," I mid, utterly at sea,
"then, how has Luca got the watoh?"
"Because 1 gave lt to him, Dlomlo!
Oh, Glglnal"
"Don't be a fool," I said Impatiently,
"but tell mo."
"If 11 buonisslmos ignore will but help
mo not to bo a sneak."
He didn't look a sneak, this poor llttlo
miserable Giovanni.
"A sneak?" I repeated. "Tell me and
I'll do iny best. Why did you glvo the
watch to Luca?"
Ho straightened back his shoulders then
and told me.
"It was because his poor eyo waa gone
and his poor leg.    He said to me: 'Now.
Vanni, you have no wound, you have the
watch, and you will also have Gigina. No
girl would every marry a ono nrmed man
with only one eyo.'   It was in tho hospital
at Mossann, the day I flrst saw him, the
poor boy.   'You have all, and I, your poor
friend, havo nothing.    Goodby, I will kill
myself.' Ho was always my mlglior amieo,
signorc, and Iwas in despair.    'Yes,'  he
suid, 'I will kill myself and then perhaps
she will bo sorry.'    So, if I was to have
Gigina, what did I care for the watch?   1
gavo it to him."
Ho paused.
"B pol?" I suggested.
"Sissignoro, and then���Gigina says to
me: 'Shame on you,  Vanni 1   To come
home unhurt  with  no  honors!   I will
marry Luca!'    And now I am home, and
they all despise me," went on tho poor lud,
"and Gigina laughs at mo.    She seems to
think it ls my fault perhaps that Luca has
lost an  arm and an eyo.    Oh, Din!" ho
cried suddenly, rising, "I am so afraid 1
Will tell.* I nearly told them all just now
in the piazza.    I ran away and came ln
hero."
"Luca ls a canaglia," I said.
"Oh, no, but his lifo ls ruined, povo
petto, and he was molto hello. Only," he
hesitated in his loyalty, "Ithlnk���non lm-
porta. But, per l'amor dl Dio, signore,
tell mo, what must 1 do?"
There was something of the fatalist Inthe way he looked at me. I knew that
whatever I might advise he would do.
The fault would be mine, the responsibility no longer his.
"Como to the station tomorrow at 4," I
���aid at length. "1 will tako you to Flor
eneo with mo."
On my wuy to the station I cnllod on
Luca. Ho was sitting outside ln tho sun
ln a big pillow filled chair, surrounded by
a crowd of admirers. Resido hhn -sat Ui
glnu, beaming with pride.
"Buonglorno, slgnore,"shosaid. "Isn't
Ita pity thut ho hus lost an arm and an
eye? But 1 don't caro, and we aro to lie
married on Saturday."
She    played    ostentatiously   with
watch which  she woro on
her brown neck.
"I  hear Vanni   Bernolll  ls going with
you.    Then he won't lie here for the wed
ding?"
She smiled consciously.   I began to pity
Luca.
" Poor boy, perhups it's just as well."
Some of tho bystanders laughed, and
Lucn twisted his poor thin lingers nerv-
tuisly about the buttons on Mb eoat.
"Oh, yes,"continuedtho village beauty,
"ho is a good lad, Vanni, but���n girl
doesn't have the chance every day of marrying a hero."
1 looked significantly at Luca, who wos
watching me from under his bandago.
The following aro the prices of groceries, provisions, etc., as quoted by our
