CHAPTER, XI—(CONTINUED). [ Tiomane, Who was always respectful, asled herself in arranging some music ri the piano, longing for the moment frhen she might say good rtlght to Mad' ne do Sorgnes. JBUt the latter was not at all sleepy, Ind, lightlhg : a fresh cigarette, was evl- lently prepared for a long conversation Ibotit this wonderful evening. "And you, my silent darllng,"she said, Addressing Marltza, "did you enjoy jrour coming out ball, belle debutante?" Maritza pretended not to hear her pother's question, and seemed absorbed In the work of taking the pearl orna- nentfl from her golden hair. "Do you know, ma mignonne, you lurned all the heads this evening; yes, 111—old and young," continued the fond bother,' still smoking her cigarette Iracefully, and looking admiringly at |er daughter. "Yes, Mademoiselle, all l-all!" She emphasized the last word (rith evident pleasure. '. Maritza shrugged her shoulders impatiently, but did not reply. "Decidedly, you ought to be called Che Beautiful Mute,' my darling. Come id sit beside me. Do ypu not know [lat I want to question you? Yes, It only to hear your confession, ma Signonne, that I am here." f Annoyed, at last, by this strange Slence, Madame de Sorgnes threw aside |er cigarette, rose and took her daugh- er's handg in her own, as if'to force ler attention. , Marltza disengaged herself quickly, aying in a petulant tone, "Let me |lone, mamma." "What Is the matter with you, my |hlld?"asked the fond mother. "Nothing, mamma, I am only weary, ph! so weary," and the spoiled' child burst Into tears. "Maritza!" exclaimed the mother, how [eally alarmed. "Dear little one," added "Made- nplselle," rushing forward as If to protect her favorite from some Invisible Enemy, and drawing the beautiful goung head to her bosom. "Marltza, what does this mean?" murmured Madame de Sorgnes, bending Jnd kissing away the tears which oursed down the lovely face. Tiomane |ad stopped In her work of arranging music, and stood at the piano, out- lardly calm, but trembling from head |o foot at the presentiment of coming Borrow. With a fervent prayer for jelp, she nerved herself to meet It. 1 "What is the matter, pet?" again bleaded the anxious mother. Maritza disengaged herself from ('Mademoiselle's" protecting arms, and, standing erect, answered, with Inde- Iscribable violence: "The matter Is, mamma, that here, In Imy own home, I have been insulted— ismost grossly insulted," , "Insulted, darling!" Interrupted Ma|dame de Sorgnes; "Impossible!" "Yes, mamma, Prince Hassan even—" "Prince Hassan, my treasure! Why, ido you not know that he came here ftonight only to see you. He saw you.. |He was enchanted, as every one Is. IHe told me ,so over and over again. |Yes, sweet one," she added, taking fher daughter's head in her hands and sissing the beautiful golden hair, "yes, Iwlth one little word you can make ?rlnce Hassan the happiest of men and year, 'Mademoiselle la Duchesse,' as Juillaume calls you, the closed, crown a princess on this lovely head," Marltza, recoiling, answered, in a h-ansport of anger bordering on frenzy, !'No, no, mamma, never. The prince jias Insulted me—do you understand? Insulted me for this low born stranger— Jhls Intriguer—this perfldlou's girl." "I—I!

My lister, indeed! You are no fool that I iiust acknowledge, You prepared your Iriumph most skillfully." "Prepared my triumph?" echoed Tlo- tiane, no longer trying to curb, her jnger, "Yes, prepared, Do you imagine lhat your maneuvers are so well planned that I can not see through jj'em?

I observed that, as - soon as the dance was ended, he led you, or rather you led him, to the supper-room—" "A great crime," Tiomane interrupted Impetuously, "to be thirsty and to take a sherbet in a room with fifty other persons who were doing the same thing." "The crime, as you call It, my dear, Was not in taking a sherbet," replied "Mademoiselle," In a tone of tranquil security, and with -the benevolent expression of a hyena sure of his prey, "fpr, as ypu say, there Is nothing more proper, after a waltz, than to take the arm of your partner and go to the supper-room for an ice or a sherbet. But it is very Improper for a young girl to prolong the tete-a tete." "The tete-a tete,' as you-are pleased to call it, as likewise our conversation in the ball-room, was of Marltza alone." "I am quite willing to believe It, my child," replied her pitiless tormentor; "nevertheless, to lookers-on who knew nothing of the conversation it had the appearance of a flirtation, which, I must tell you, was very harshly commented upon. An Invitation to Mademoiselle de Sorgnes In her own ballroom is noted, for .'when she accepts It She Is obliged to refuse many.Pthers who desire "the honor of dancing with her. Prince Hassan's invitation was noted. You were seen leaving the ballroom on his arm; the waltz began; Marltza waited his return to claim her. It would be quite useless, my dear, to wound your feelings by repeating the comments which were made on your Improper conduct." "This is really abominable!" cried Madame de Sorgnes. "You see, you see, mamma," added Marltza, who was seated on her mother's knee, while Tiomane and her hypocritical governess stood confronting each other. "Finally," continued the gbverness In Tiomane • Staggered under this last blow. She remained for a moment mPi, tionless, half suffpcated. Then, as If animated by a supreme resplve, she rose, her face livid, her features frozen with despair. "Madame," she stammered, "will you permit me to leave your house?" , "As soon as you please," Madame de Sorgnes replied pitilessly. Tlomana without replying, fled to her own room. the same calm, dignified tone, "It was my duty to remember that, this scandal would fall upon the beloved family which has so long honored me with its confidence. I could not Ignore this duty. This is the reason, Tiomane, that I induced Marltza to go to the supper-room under the pretext of taking a glass of orangeade. I hop'ed that she would return tb the ball-room on the prince's arm, and that your bold attempt at a flirtation with his royal highness would be overlooked." "You acted intelligently and wisely, Pascale," concluded Madame de Sorjf- nes, Tiomane had listened to this pitiless arraignment as one in a dream, utterly unable to comprehend such audacious mendacity. Again and again her white lips half opened in an exclamation of horror, but the words died unuttered, and a frightful terror took possession of her at the semblance of CHAPTER XII. HE CRISIS O F 'tears, of anger, of despair, passed away, and Tiomane grew calm and was able to see things In their true light. It 'was now broad daylight, but she did not. think of trying to sleep. She threW a mantilla over her shoulders, and opened a window. The cool air of the morning refreshed her weary eyes, and she tried to think. ,Her whole life was to be suddenly changed. After Such Insults, her presence in that house was no longer possible. The storn had burst on her! head, wheii she believed herself perfectly secure. Indeed, for five years her life had been much happier, for this brave girl had made for herself, by degrees, a life apart from and above the petty meannesses by which she was surrounded. Moreover, custom, had done, as ever, its kindly Work. Her position In the family was plainly marked out, and it was necessary, bon gre, .mal gre, to resign herself to it. She knew .that the consul esteemed her, for he took evident pleasure In conversing with her, and often congratulated her on her rare musical gifts. Madame de Sorgnes, whose friv- olus nature could not understand or appreciate so noble a character, was nevertheless, flattered by the success of her protege; • and as for Marltza, she was as much attached to her submissive companion as so selfish a girl could be. Mademoiselle Pascale, alone, had kept up the old animosity, but its expression had become less disagreeable. The remarkable progress 'of her pupil, her courageous' perseverance, her rapid artistic development, her dignified, elegant manners, caused the reproaches to grow less and less frequent —they were gradually dying out for want of element. For a long time her hostility had. been shown only In the stony look of her cold eyes, and In the harshness of the tone In which she addressed her pupil. But she had one sincere friend, whose affection was not weakened by time or absence. She had seen him but once in five years, during the last vacation passed at Berck. She was then sixteen, and he confided to "his tall sister," as he liked to call her, his young dreams of the future—the ambitious dreams of a youth of twenty. All this past, with its intense joys and its poignant sorrows, was gone forever; and the futurn which she was to make for herself—what was it to be? What was she to do? What Was to become of her, thus abandoned far from her own country, and without any pecuniary resources whatever? One situation alone seemed possible. She was well educated, and a fine musician. Could she not find among the ladles whom she had met at the consulate a position as governess, or as demoiselle de compagnle? But before taking any steps to obtain such a position, would It not be necessary to ask Madame de Sorgnes' permission, and would it bo granted? 6 11 and ponder OVer the days of long ago; Of the schoolmates of my boyhood, Of the joys 1 Used to know.

A Germantown man had a novel experience with a would-be burglar a few nights ago, says the Philadelphia Record. His wife, on several occasions, had heard noises as If, somebody was trying to enter the residence. On the night in question the man of the house had returned home about 1 o'clock in the morning and was sitting In the kitchen soaking his feet In strong mustard water, when he heard some one prying at the shutter. Hastily ascending into the second story, and lopking from the window, he espied the burglar hard at work with a ;)immy at the shutter.

Now, there are three new cereals recently created that will make money for the farmer.
