The Village had offered Up Us chivalry at the altar of patriotism, and every heart in the small congregation was 1 awed by the thought that for some of the brave men there assembled this was the last day of worship in the. little church at home, They had known each other from childhood, Edwnrd Allen and Esther Morton.. Their homes adjoined, Until the war broke but It never occurred to either of them that they would ever separate. Their Joys and sorrows, even their ambitions, had been one from the beginning of their schooldays. As Esther grew to womanhood she developed a beautiful voice. Eftwatd was gifted- likewise, and they hoped great things for themselves in the future. . ' . When Edward Was fourteen years old he lost his mother, and ever since her death Esther Morton's mother had been glad' to counsel and befriend neighbor Allen's boy. , . Monday came. Bravely the women of the village sped their heroes on their, way, nor even when the last blue coat faded from sight did they quite give themselves to their grief.

Edward Allen was.bfcolde.him, but'before he fairly realized his friend's fate he wa's wounded 'himself aiifl 'lost- consciousness. When he regained his senses he found himself in a confederate prison. Many weary months he suffered inconceivably in mind and body. He was not sure that -'Col. Morton was dead. Did they.know his fate at home? He felt the awful'certainty of*Col. Morton's death would be better for Esther and her mother than months of horrible silence and suspense such as he was passing through, and he thanked God.that his own .father Had died before the horrors of the war. • . He wrote to Esther. No 'answer ever reached him.;. Anxiety told upon his health, .and when he was at last-'exchanged he-lay for .weeks in, a union hospital with a lingering feveri.

The scene Is Mentone, a resort for consumptive people, but which becomes fashionable, since a few members of the light squadron of the army of beauty have decided that Cannes was stuck up, Nice, dusty and vulgar, Monte Carlo good enpassant only, arid that Mentone would do better than any other place as the ; headqu'arters. on- the blue' coast, r Llane' de ''Pougy 'WasHhe first to -start the movement when she fitted up at Mentone the daintiest of the villas, which is always en fete, and. looks every evening like an enchanted bower. She felt like the queen of the place, and behaved as such till the day of the battle of the flowers came, when she expected to be crowned by her admiring subjects. 'She arrived last on the scene, so as not to mar the effect; she appeared standing, driving tandem, her carriage completely hidden under a' thick bower qf carnations, .roses and hyacinths, she herself being got up as a bunch of lilacs of different shades, from the deep reddish Charles X^ to the pal-; est Persian, arid then pure white. .A murmur of delight received her arid'h'er vanity was almost satisfied; but how it. happened nobody knows, at : the' distribution of banners she received the smallest and most Insignificant one.' The superb beauty took it with a grin; then, pulling from her 'hair. 'a 'long dia-" mond pin, which held two bunches of. lilac, she pricked the satin and tore a big hole in it, then handed the rag to her. groom with^ a whisper. The man broke the golden handle in • two and threw the whole on the ground. After 'this the tandem was turned 1 around and the offended beauty drove home. Till now 1 the story is not extraordinary, but the point comes with the worthy mayor of Mentone, at the same time president of the committee of the b.attle, " who a few minutes later drove to the enchanted bower, insisted on seeing the fairy of the place and actually asked to be forgiven for an Involuntary and much- deplored error, but the bunches of lilac nodded mercilessly and said "No," and the fair Liane, after having shown the door, to the Inconsolable dignitary, declared that she" was leaving Mentone on the morrow. After that the banquet of the' committee turned out to be a failure and. almost a battlefield,.- the members putting the fault on one another's back, and Mentone seriously thinks of rebuking the authorities who have stupidly offended and driven away such a superb signboard from their sleepy hole. > Her Serious Aliirin.
