These getttlemeh, old friends of Monsieur* de Sorgnes, offered his son the position of chief ehglneer, with a salary of 20,000 francs and a share in the earnlhgs of the road. This godsend seemed to Madame de Sorghes the realization of a dream. She pictured the winter there, Under the beautiful Ionian sky, breathing the perfume of the orange blossoms, Bailing oh the blue sea, and the summer in France in the pretty village where Marltza was the happy mistress of a beautiful home, set in a velvety iawtt, and surrounded by venerable trees. The young engineer seemed irritated by the general enthusiasm and listened coldly to their rose-colored plans for the "future. At last, breaking the sl- ence, he said brusquely, I .am attached to Paris. 1 have nany friends here. Why' can I not be left in peace where I am?" That afternoon he accompanied the family to the concert at the Eden.

When Madame de Sorgnes went to her room to take off her wraps Guillaume followed Tiomane to hers. Astonished at the intrusion the young girl remained standing, waiting for an explanation, without removing her bonnet. , "Pardon me, Tlomane," he said in a resolute tone, "if, I annoy you, but,In this important decision I feel the need of your counsel, and, as In the happy days long ago, I beg you to be my guide. Will you refuse me this favor?" The young girl did not speak for several minutes; then she said in an agitated voice: "In what can I serve you?" "I repeat—by advising me." "On what subject?" "On my duty," he said humbly. I find myself placed in an exceedingly difficult position. Must I obey the dictates of my heart or the dictates of duty? I can not hide from myself that my duty as a man, as the head of a family, imposes upon me this voluntary exile, which will secure ease and luxury Cor my mother." "Certainly."

Tio- mane looked out into the great deserted garden. Suddenly she heard a sob. She turned , her head and saw that Guillaume had burled his face in his hands and was weeping bitterly. "Guillaume, what is the matter?" she exclaimed. .V He had risen and left her side," rage and despair written on his face.

No!" she interrupted harshly, censed at these repeated protestations ot a love which she believed was spp- ken of another, and taking pleasure in plunging the sword deeper and deeper into that suffering heart; "no!

In spite of her efforts to control herself these words troubled Tiomane strangely.
