It Would hot SUlt me at all to meet you, who have been treated by me as a daughter; you, who have had the same advantages as Marltza, at service in the house of one of my friends. Neither would it suit me to see you running about the streets of Smyrna with a roll of music Under your arm. My decision is fixed Irrevocably. We were talking of it when you entered, I shall write to Sister Victoire to-day that you are about to return to Berck. Bhe will receive you at the convent until further orders from me. Tou have, as you know, a small sum of money in the savings bank at Berck. It is now increased by the interest of all these years."

The flhsul Was alone at the table; the la lies had not appeared and he seemed furprlsed to see her. "What! brave girl, already up?" He was evidently ignorant ,of what lad occurred. He continued smiling |indly on his young companion. "What a beautiful age! A night pent in dancing gives you wings for le next day. Behold the'effect of suc- 3SS." '•The tete-a-tete repast was soon ended fnd Tiomane went back to her Iwn room. In the corridor she met Lnals. "Is Madame de Sorgnes up?" sked the young- girl. Beceiving a • rein the affirmative, she went to ladame de Sorgnes' boudoir and ipped gently. „' It was "Mademoiselle" said "Enter." In this most charm- jig boudoir, Madame de Sorgnes, at|red in a. pink surah peignoir, was Uf-reclining in an easy-chair. Mad- .lolselle Pascale was seated near her. iThe animated expression of the faces speak of money." "But I must speak of It that you may know precisely what your position is." "I hope I shall be able to provide for myself," said Tiomane, with a little pardonable pride. "Oh, that is easily said, but not so easily carried into execution. My intention is to secure to you a email income, which will' enable you to live modestly," "I shall accept nothing, madam," said the poor girl firmly, but respectfully. "I shall give Sister Victoire entire charge of your future," continued the lady, as If Tlomane had not spoken, "Sh'e is very good and very sensible, and will watch over you. She will Save you from yourself. I shall then have done my duty to the poor waif whom I very foolishly adopted. Tou may prepare at once to.take the next steamer to Marseilles. It starts in five days." Tiomane listened with apparent calmness to this decisive condemnation, dictated doubtless by the wily governess just before her entrance Into the room. She did not even glance toward her triumphant enemy. Was it not better to bear defeat bravely? dined any aid, as she Intended, she said, to select from her wardrobe only what was absolutely necessary. BUt the next day the Greek servant, who had related the conversation to her mistreat came again with a formal command from Madame de Sorgnes, who required that her protege should retain all her gifts. Tiomane obeyed, and the work of packing began. Talkative 3111 had a great piece of news to communicate. Prince Hassan had asked the hand of Marltza ahd had been accepted. At that moment the bride-elect was humming a gay air in the next room. "Hein!" added Elli, with a spice of malice in her tone, "they will be well mated, the prince and the princess." CHAPTER XIV.

May I not spend them in my own room, where, if you will kindly | the permit, I will take my meals?" "Certainly; I think it better for us all that you should remain in your own room." "Be kind enough, madam, to be the bearer of my heartfelt gratitude to M. de Sorgnes, whom I shall not. see trians. In the distance, the roaring of sea added to the horror of the scene. Tiomane, nearly suffocated in her room, had attempted several times to open a window; but the burning air which entered had made her close it quickly. When Elll brought her repast she told her there was a dinner party that day at the palace—a dinner of J.VJ.. U.C OUlgllCO, WllUlti J.

And to you, madam, I intimate friends, among whom were the wish to offer my very sincere thanks governor and Prince Hassan; for all you have done for me." spite of the size of the apartments, the . Madame de Sorgnes betrayed not the guests were ill at ease, the servants slightest emotion. Tiomane having ap- quite exhausted; that the guests wouia, proached to kiss her hand, she coldly permitted it; not, however, without evident 'annoyance. "You understand, then," she said In a hard, imperious tone, "that you go in five days—Monday evening, at 6 o'clock. Adieu." The young girl left the room. CHAPTER XIII. HE DATS OF 'complete isolation which preceded her Id e p a r t u re were Very sad indeed to /Tiomane. Nevertheless, her seclu- Jsion spared her the Embarrassment, the 'constraint, of life .i n common with those whom she could no longer consider friends, and this was, if not happiness, peace, She passed these five days alone in her room, entirely cut off from the gay life of the palace. In the next rooms she could distinguish Maritza's voice scolding the servants, and Mademoiselle Pascale's hypocritical tones From her windows she could see the elegant toilets of the ladies of the house and of the visitors, walking under the orange trees in full bloom on these balmy January days— the oriental spring. All this life and movement made a strange impression upon her. It seemed to her that a long. speak," Madame de Sorgnes | long time had elapsed since she moved spiled, in a harsh "tone,« resuming her eat and her indolent attitude'.'' Tlomane hesitated a moment, and ihen said very gently, but very firmly, "Dear madam, I wish to speak to you Mone," The governess rose to leave the room "Remain, Pascale," said her mistress. "Ah! madam, it Is quite natural that nip unfortunate girl should wish to peak to you alone." "Thjs unfortunate girl, as you very properly call her, will speak,.-If she eak at all, in the presence of her who i been a mother to heri to whom she Bwes m that she is, and who.even now. Ifter the odious insults of last night, trying to 4o all she can to insure her i happy future," I Tiomane's last hope faded avfay. A BW moments before, >t seemed to her "^possible that suph iniquity could be Jopessful,, said t,o herself.that, ace alone with'her benefactress she juld be able to persuade her of the of the charges which ha4 sen made against her, and although 4etermln«4 to }eave the house There she h&4 suffered so much, she "I SHil/D ACCEPT .NOTHING." both ladies showed the absorbing in- Irest of the conversation in which they lere engaged. Tiomane closed the loor gently a'nd approached the great Tidy. At the unexpected appearance her protege Madame de Sorgnes .ose, with a gesture of surprise and inger, and her smiling face srrew hard |nd menacing. ' AS for Tlomane, on finding herself in |he presence of the being whom she lad once loved So tenderly, she was al- ost moved to tears. "Excuse me, dear madam," She said humbly, "but I hope you will grant me few moments' private conversation vith you." "Bah!" replied Madame de Sorgnes, |n a tone of contempt, shaking off the pishes of her cigarette. "I really cannot what you can add to all your lirsotence of last night." Tiomane made a supreme effort to estraln her tears, and stammered teebly, "Tes—I know—dear madam, I Vas exasperated, almost insane, and I .lost humbly beg your pardon. But I vas deeply wounded—the blow was so inexpected, so frightful. I have had lime to reflect. I am more calm now, am sure no word that can offentt escape my lips." no doubt, retire early. Indeed, Tlomane heard Marltza returning to her sleeping-room about 11 o'clock, and soon deep silence reigned, in the palace, broken only by the loud rumblings of the thunder, which, seemed to presage a terrible storm. It burst suddenly in the early morning hours, with a thunder peal which semed to shake the whole palace. (TO BE CONTINUED.)
