His ending was effective with her, who saw that h« was a gentleman, and was too truly a lady herself to willingly hurt a gentleman's feelings. She knew that newspapers were -very different things over here from what they were abroad. She had been very mui:h surprised at certain personalities in them. And yet some'of the people of her acquaintance about whom these personalities were ublished had al times favored 'her vith marked copies forwarded way across the water, evidencing- a certain aride in them. She must refuse Paul, it least without tier 'mother's consent. 3ut she wis'iisd to spare his feelings, especially Ji-s she more than half doubted whsther, after all.he were not brother's friend, despite that claim of distant cousinship to the Terry in Yale. So she answered: It striken me, Mr. Terry, that the> custom ycu apeak of is very vulgar. I nfer, thougnyou did not say so directly, that you want me to tell you for your paper what I am going to wear at ;he Southern ball, my ffown and my ,ewelry. N<-w 1 certainly cannot consent to do th •• unless my mother »1- ows it, which ] do not think she will under any -.i.rcumstances. I have often heard her speak of the vulgar personalities the St. Louis papers were running to nowadays, and that she hoped they were not a type of American papers g-enerally or she would lose her [aith" in republican institutions. As tor your threat that my poor gown may be publicly traduced the day after the ball," added Miss Lebourgeois, with a smile. "1 don't care a fig what the papers say about it. 1 shall not even renc what is said. And so, you see, I e»- oape the power of tlie cress." -So you think now, Miss Lebour- -eplied Paul. "Uut you will LTO your mistake. Even if you do not read it yourself, your friends will tell you all iiboiH the second public appear-nv.'c nf that, gown, and you will blu^ii for it when its mangled, un- worLhv counterfeit is sewed up. A very Tittle in the way of description will g'O a great way with me this afternoon, but if 1 should ever have the good fortune to be sent a. second time to find out your costume on some other occasion, you will: have learned the habit of th<: country, and will no doubt favor J»ie much more in •itenso.

"If you think you can convert a lady to your view by showing- up the inconsistency of some of her sex. arid paying 1 her the doubtful compliment of classing her w::th such persons"—oh, the emphasis on the word "persons!" it spoke volumes for Mis,s Lebourgeois' intensity of feeling in the mutter— •you entirety mistake the girl whom you are now addressing. I do ;iot believe you »re even remotely connected with my brother's friend. He would never have made such a mistake about our family even on the first introduction—I mean," she added blu»h- ingly, "at a first meeting. But I am interested always in the real opinions of men about our sex—they do »o carefully conceal them except when they are baffled, Then they do eo.me oat »o oAdly by mistake, the s'tnpid creatures. 3o pray take a chair; you mn«t b* tired standing w long, and p«rsnad« me that 1 -.m one of those women who ;ire not satisfied, as you. men i»y, with .studying the lookrnj'-glasiii iu the dressing-room, all the available time, but must meeds make a looking-glata of the newspapers." This bantering tone .unused Paul greatly. It reminded him oi Frank at every turn of phrase. He was not at all sure that he should not win after all. So he took the chair. "I cannot, imagine any looking-glass," hs gallantly said, "from wWch Miss Lebourgeois would^turE; away dissatisfied. But I should imajriue that a perfect mirror would be preferable to a Cracked — " "Ah, 1 know the rest;," provokingly interrupted Hiss Leburjffiois.

The shadow of a stately and very dignified woman, in the full maturity of middle life, had fallen across the threthold, unobserved bv the young people interested in theii talk. She had stood there perhaps a minute, listening to her daughter, a look of displeased surprise gathering darkness with each added word of the familiarly toned conversation of net daughter. Her own tone was of tho iciest as she turned to Paul and said: names best ranger's of her •nrrore a swOTtfe-yOuHg man; Wr irnaue' jpded tuei to flrt iie of flrs.

She would have no vuljrar quarrel. The servants should not know, if possible, of the scene. She would meet, her mother as if no'.'.iiug had happened wliile others were by, but in, secret that mother should feel how un forgotten was tue wrong of her insinuations. Her thoughts ran back lo a novel she had been reading only as Jules brought in Mr! Terry's card. It was "The Yir- Mother, what shall I say? This is ginians." and Louisa had laid down the book to think of a little incident- as It wa.s in the opening- too notch. It is shame- oivisa. will you or will you not Jules appeared. v - J to chapters, where little imperious Ma- had sanctioned the those lion-crowned, frowning Now the sun was clouded in to the servant who had let, Paul in— "show Mr. Terry the door." "Oh mother."'broke in the girl, "Mr. Terry is a——" but Paul heard »o more, "i will spare your servant any trouble," lie said in his stateliest manner; aud making his most deferential bow to Miss Lcbourg-eois. he hastened out as quickly as a dignified walk could carry him. He soon found himself bevond the lion-mounted gates and on a settee in "the square." CHAPTER VI. Let us leave Paul for a while to hia thoughts on tbe settee in "the square." 11 was,a creaking apology for a respectable bench; it had been banged around in the world a long- time before it had been assigned its present duty among equally shabby, battered companion*. But Paul felt ithat it was just the plac* C0T D, £"**»• s . / 3 Pe had Wen grossly insulted in the home of one of his 'best college friends, turned out of that home by a servant, at the command of that friend's mother. Worst of all, he had brought the insult OIL himself by obtruding where he had no business, masquerading- (in dead eairnest) in what was little better than a lackey's role, to be suspected, perhaps found out. It had been bright sunshine when he passed between trat«s. and some big :rain-drops hsid spattered tbe sidewalk. Yet it was not all bitter. He had evidently made a good impression on the girl. She had treated him with easy familiarity—something- more than could be expected—owing- to her still h:ilf-uneradica.ted belief that he was indeed her brother's friend. Her tone of protest, as he retreated proved that. she resented her mother's cutting dismissal.. There were com- pensiitlons after all. Tettn'e contempt, of i he mother still blistered his. cheek with hot shame. He looked, up aad realized that tibe fickly sky might at un v minute pour down heaviest showers upon his umbrellaless head: or that it might will; him with the Scorching- rays of a pitiless suu. Tlie world 'was in a woman's nj.ootl As h;iif 'twixt smiles unti tears she stooii. Let it sraile or weep as suited it. What mattered a little more or less physical discomfort? So iie sat there. Meantime mother anddaug-hterfnced each other in the quaint old.drawing- room of the LebouT^eois mansion. The "•irl's aroused spirit and the mother's angered surprise were pitted against each other. Which would master? Generally the mother, most indulgent cf parents, held sway by kindness. Her rules cf conduct had never been rebelled affainst. Unconventional freaks—petty before—had been quickly a'toned for. There had never been in all their history a collision such as this. But the girl had now been cut to th«: heart through the most sensitive part. She. th» cloistered one, broug-ht up ^nder the strict rules of European and •lia_u«tte, bad hear c:e out? or shall I send you your room, and tell the Count of your liaison?" "There are some things that not even a mother can be permitted to say to her own daughter. I did not suppose that ray mother would find it possible to even think them about her daughter. 1 will go to my room aad I will myself write to the Count. You shall see the letter, and if you do not forward it to him 1 will, or else take the first opportunity I have to inform him of what lias passed, exactly as it has passed. "Mark you. mother, the first opportunity, be there more or fewer present; and what I say I mean. If Frank were here you had not dared insult me so." And drawing- herself up to lier full height, a good two inches above her mother's stature, the girl swept by her in proud scorn, up the stairs and sti-iig'ht to her own room. "Louisa!" said the mother. And then as the draperies rustled less distinctly in the increasing' distance, the now cowed mother exclaimed, ''Oh, Lou! Lou!" If the girl heard she did not heed. The door of oher own chamber was not banned, but sharply closed. Tbe bolt was sprunjr with a snap. Mother and •Servant eyes we re shut out. Louisa ' did what all girls do •when suing by injustice and alone with their mortification and resentment. She threw herself upon her bed and ourst into tears, sobbing violently. Mrs. Lebourgeois' first impulse was to Fattwr Ttee*« scythe i* a weapon that no man can escape. Sooner or later it moat lay all mem low. With premature death it i» different. Nature intended that every man should live a long and useful life, and die a peaceful, painless death. Men defeat the intention of a beneficent Providence by the manner in which they live, their disregard of the laws of health and their utter failure to protect health when it is threatened and restore it when it is lost. The most common result of neglect of health is that dread disease, consumption. Not raauy veiirs ajro it was considered incurable. Now it is known that Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery will cure 98 per cent of ail cases if taken in time. That is its record durinff a period of thirty years. Manyof the«hankful patient* have permitted their names,, experiences and photographs to b« reproduced in Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medici! Adviser.

She knew that she had done that daughter an injustice by her insinuations of former improprieties. Her cry of 'Oh dame Esmond whipping- of her older twin, George, by his hated tutor. George bad expressed his willingness to submit like a little man to the indignity, from a sense of honoorin obeying- his mother as the head of the house. But before the whipping cam'e off—as it never did —and after ail ineffectual nroteat against the indignity, he walked np to the mantel and deliberately threw a cherished piece of bric-a-brac on the hearth-stone, where it was shivered into many little bits. "It's too late, Hal.'' Master George had said to bis brother. "You will never mend that again, never."' It. was an act typical of the eternal nature of certain wrongs from parent to child a-nd had interested Miss Lebourgeois greatly. She had much sympathy with high-spirited people, and was just of an age to appreciate the symbolism of the young rebel's act. She had no thought in reading it that it was so soon tu have an application in her own case. She had a double interest in it now. So iihi? got oft' the bed and picked up the book I'rom the chance resting-place on the floor it had found us she had been hastily called out. She read the passage more than once. "Yon will iievi-r mend that again, never,'' she repeated over and over to herself. The words burned themselves into her memory. Again she determined on her course lo her mother and strengthened herself in her attitude of icy dignity. She determined that her promise as regards her •on duct to the carried out with Paul? Should she Lou! Lou!" had been the protest of her ^* ^Stint d^±?f- that her mother had dismissed heart against a quarrel, the expression of a willingness to ask forgiveness and to a.ccord it.

She had notolooked at the picture before in a long time, for she had had pictures and persons of other men to think about. But her memory had not played her a trick. It was strikingly the same face, only younger. Paul had always shavied off beard, mustache, and whiskers. He did so to-dny. There was nothing to change the resemblance but the slow advance of age in blondes at his time of life. The proof was convincing, to Miss Lebourgeois at least Something must be done.
