For the first time her calmness was  visibly troubled, there was a tremor  in her voice, like a suppressed cry of  torture and anguish. A sympathizing  murmur arose from the crowd.  "Do you not see.

"The proof that I biing is my diary;  'that is, lhe register of my hidden  thoughts, of my most secret sentiments, in it you will find the Incidents  of July 29th very minutely described.

Even belore the reading of these  sheets, Robert understood the extent  of the saciince, know that he had been  loved, adored by thU poor misunderstood young girl. lie saw all this on  her agonized face.

"May I ask, Monsieur, that only the  parts absolutely necessary shall be  road. I suffer much���"  She could not finish her phrase, but  all had understood.  M.irthe Levas��eur was very ill, but  ^she did not die.

Telling her that  cruel winter, like sorrow, is not eternal, Uiat all lecomnienws, all aspires  toward happiness, and that this happiness comes under many forms.  Her sacrifice would not be fruitless.  Having suffered much', she had learned to feel deeply the suffering of  others. What mattered the rest? She  yearned for death no longer, as she  had done during That horrible .crisis.  She loved life, notwithstanding the  shade of sadness which she could not  completely throw off and which bad  nothing of bitterness, and she found  It goo.i to live. Of all the sentiments  that had tortured her, there now remained only an infinite'sweetness'and  a passionate desire to see those she  loved happy and noble. ' .

On the advice of the physician, Marthe also left her dear solitude and went with her aunt to Algeria. She felt the need of leaving  the spot, for some time ar least, where  she hurt suffered so much. l  She lecovered her physici'1'streugth  long before the wounds in her heart  closed, but the cure came at' last.  .Marthe acquired a taste' for traveling,  and hei aunt, who, was fond of a  change, encouraged her. More than a  year passed thus, ��� and Marthe recovered her former serenity and was  almost c-o'h'.en'.ed.  A few -months after Robert's acquittal, Captain Bertrand's murderer  was discovered. He was a poor soldier who had deserted, exasperated  bv the haisliness of his captain. While  almost dying of starvation,, he had entered a house with the intention of  robbing, and, finding a revolver, the  idea immediately came to him to kill  the man'who was the cause of all his  troubles. Later, being arrested for desertion and buiglary, he related how  he had avenged hluise1! on his comma rider.  When Marthe finally returned to  Cote Uoisee, spring was In its full  splendor. Mme. d'Ancel was the first  to come to the chateau to greet her.  There was a moment of embarrassment, but Mme. Despois began to talk  rapldli of their iravels, and the constraint soon melted away. Marthe was  so cordially simple and natural that  the past seemed far away and forgotten.  Again, as iwo yeais before, the  young chatelaine i-ccompanied the  visitor to the end of the park. Again  while they walked on, their ga-��e wandered over 1h��* sea. the graceful curve  of the yellow shore, the thin silhouette of the distant Havre. They seemed equally happy to see each other, to  feel the old friendship re-awakening.  .Mine. d'Ancel, not dating to expiess  all he i thoughts, displayed infinite  tenderness In her least w< t ds, in her  least gestures, and Marthe understood  it all. It was. however, with it faint  tiemor in her voice that she finally  said:  'Robert has promised 'o spend part  of the summer with me- "  ' Edmee mentioned it in her last  lettet," o'tjseived Manhe. with a quiet  smile.

When canned stuffs spoil they are subjected to treatment that destroys the  outward appearances of decay,, but  makes, the food, no more fit for consumption, than , it was before.. The  process is upplled chiefly to fruits,  which are sold'1 after renovation to  bakeries and such .places, to be made  into pies and similar articles. Spoiled  ,fruits are also made into soda fountain  slrup3.. "Reprocessing" plants sometimes constitute a separate department  of a factory, and sometimes Ahoy are  run ns an independent^ Institution,  which buys up' spoiled foods nnd eon-  verts them^into marketable products.���  Xew York Tribune.
