' WOT, i, CQQPgR, Tupelo, HIM,, I ".My?(«te,r*Mlf«8<H Every evening after maneuvers Man rice Tournier, a young lien ten ant in th reserves, was only too glad to get boo to the bouse where be had been qnar tered. From the first day that he ha been quartered in this bouse his be bavior toward its ooonpants had bee marked by great courtesy and consider ation. If he happened to meet either o the two ladies in the hall or on tb stairs, be would always stand aside re epeotfnlly to allow her to pass, bu when the elder lady, won over by hi deference, invited him to dine wit them he had always accepted the invi tation gladly. As a rule the elder lady would be lying on the sofa, while th younger cue would be reading aloud From tbe dictatorial tones and sudden caprices of the former and from the re signed obedience of tbe latter the youu, officer had soon guessed that it was case of a wealthy aunt and a poor niece The faot was that the young girl Louise de Lery, had been left an orphan and totally unprovided for. Mine. Pri xneau, her greataunt and the only rela tive she had in the world, had therefor adopted her. Without being of a reull; unkind disposition, Mme. Frimean •who was a great invalid, had gradually worked on and profited by her niece gratitude until at length the poor gir had become quite a slave. Her aun would not suffer any one else to do any thing for her. She could not bear to hear other footsteps in the room or to hear any other voice but that of Louise and for the last five years she had thus thoughtlessly and quite unconsciously been crushing all the spirit and all the gayety out of the young girl's life. Louise de Lery was now 25, and, though she had lost the freshness of hei girlhood, the young officer thought hoi very beautiful. Her eyes were of a deep, unchanging blue. She had an aquilin< nose, arched lips and waving, ohestuui colored hair, with just a touch of the gold in it that one sees in autumn leaves. Little by little had the elderly lady been won over by the gay good humoi and never failing courtesy of the young officer, and so he bad soon a great deal of his hostess and her niece during his month's sojourn with them. He had delighted in Louise's conversation and society and had soon discov ered that this girl, who had lived thus obscurely in the shade, possessed a mind which was only waiting for a touch oi sunshine to burst into the most perfeci beauty, and there was something romantic in the idea that in this old, gray looking dwelling, half buried in a little old world town, he had thus come across by chance the pale, captive princess oi his dreams. During the last week of his stay it seemed as though Mme. Frimeau had scented danger, for suddenly, and apparently without any cause, her mannei toward the young man had changed. She was always oold and sarcastic when she spoke to him, and she did not invits him to dinner with herself and niece. The time was getting desperately short — only three days more — and then, through his own foolish procrastination, he would forever have lost the opportunity he now had of speaking and perhaps of winning as his wife the only woman he would ever love. In the evening, when the two ladies happened to be sitting out in the garden, Lieutenant Four'uier on his arrival took his chair, and in spite of the aggressive expression which he read in Mme. Primeau's eyes planted it near to hers and began to talk boldly about hie departure, about Paris, and theu about his own position and means. Then suddenly and without any leading up to it he announced the faot that he was weary of his solitary life, and that he wanted to marry and settle down. Louise, bending over her embroidery, listened to all the young man was flaying, just as she might have listened to one of the love stories such as her aunt adored and which she was always having to read aloud. "But your position and your income * * * If what you mention is all you have to depend upon, you surely cannot think of marrying yet awhile. For yourself alone * * * of course it is enough, but if you had a wife and children, why * * * it would mean misery * * * misery." *** And then, without giving him time to argue the point, she rose, and, on the pretext that she was getting i chilly, she took Louise's arm, and the two ladies entered the house together. Lieutenant Tourmer did not see the young girl the next day, nor even the next. Mme. Primeau, whose heart was affected, had one of her bad attacks. She staid iu bed for the next few days, and the young girl waited on her hand and foot, taking her meals even in the eickroom, little dreaming, in her perfect unconsciousness, that there was in the whole world any single human being, who felt any interest in her and Who was longing to see her. Maurice Touruierwas in despair. His departure was now so near and Louise was invisible. He gave a message to the servant for her mistress, saying that he Was leaving and would like to say "Goodby." Mine. Pfiweau sent a cold, polite message back, regretting that ehe was too ill to gee any pne, and not even mentioning her niece. Maurice did not give up, though, even after that. The 'detachment was to leave the town at daybreak in orde* to f ppe the njeu. foe JPJUg »>arph ' P| hj> ni^ay sgn. t fhj young We are especially strong on Sash Doors, Cement, Stucco and Lime! did things away from tbe house thai night and sleep at the hotel in order not to disturb the ladies in the early morning. Heinade ft great deal of noise while 'packing, slamming the doors, dragging his trunk and his sword along With a clatter—in fact, letting the invalid know that he was really going off tbe premises. Two hours later, when it waa jusf getting dusk, he returned by a narrow street to the other side of the garden climbed the wall and then dropped down among the rosebushes. His hope was that when JJrne. Primean though) that he was out of the way she would allow her niece to go out into the garden for a breath of air after being impris oned for two or three days. The young man waited, his eyes fixed eagerly on the house door, dreading every instant that the servant would appear and 'close it for the night. But at last the young girl appeared. As soon as she had passed his hiding place and was nearly at the end of the path he came out and followed her. When she turned in order to retrace her steps, she saw him and uttered a cry of surprise. He advanced to meet her, his cap in his hand, and then, when he Was once face to face with her, he told her all, hurriedly, eagerly, mixing everything up together and yet fixing her attention in spite of his iuooherenoy of all he said by the passionate look in his eyes and by the tender inflexion oi his voice, in which his whole soul vibrated. She listened to him in astonishment. Her face was paler than ever with emotion, but she could not find a word to say to him—her ideas seemed to bo hopelessly scattered. Her hands were clasped together, and she shuddered perceptibly. It was as though invisible wings were hovering around her in the still blue oi the summer evening. Just like some vision she retreated slowly and then'faded from his sight in the gathering darkness amid the trees. As she was going, though, he said hurriedly: "I understand * * * it has been so sudden * * * you cannot answei me * * * . Do not tell me now, but a< daybreak, when our detachment, passes in front of tbe house * * * be there *** make some sign * * * smile * * * or, al any rate, let me see you open the window even * * * nothing else but just that * * * and I shall know that you are not angry with me, that I may come and see you again." When once the young girl was bad in the sickroom, she took up her usual place on a low sofa near the bed. The invalid was breathing more regularly and seemed to be sleeping. Now that she was calmer and could think it all over deliberately she fell deeply touched as she remembered al] he had said, and presently a feeling oi pride came over her. She was proud to have won the love of such a man, and great tears of happiness gathered in hei eyes and rolled slowly down her pah cheeks.. Suddenly, at daybreak, Louise was awakened by a bugle blast, bold, clear, victorious, rousing from slumber the silent fields and the whole country round. The young girl started up, and she saw a faint, rosy light penetrating ihrough the closed Venetian blinds. Jn the distance she could hear the confused murmur of men's voices. An invincible desire took possession of her to break away from her monotonous existence, to live and breathe and to answer the appeal to her love which had so bewildered her yesterday. She went quickly to the window and stretched her two hands up eagerly to open it, fearing to be too late—when a iry of distress stopped her short. The sick woman, livid and shivering, was sitting up in bed, and seeing what ler niece was just going to do she cried out in a hoarse, desperate voice: "You are opening the window, Lou-, se. *** Whatever possesses yon? Jam iold—oh, so cold 1 * * * Oome here to me. * * * Don't leave me. * * * Oh, what pain I am in 1 I am terrified. * * * Child 1 * * * I am dying—I know am." * * * Just at that moment Louise could hear the measured tread of the soldiers j but, nevertheless, she went to her aunt. As soon as she reached the bedside the sick woman seized her in her arms and kissed her over and over again. But foi the first time Louise was impatient and tried to disengage herself from her aunt's embrace. It was as though she were attracted toward the window by some hitherto unknown force, powerful and almost unearthly. The sick woman took the girl's hand and placed it on her own heart, which was beating wildly. It was enough. * * * A deep, an infinite, pity overcame the young girl. * * * She resisted no longer, but quietly and submissively eat down on' the bed, and, taking the invalid in her arms, she kissed the poor, wriniled face and soothingly promised never—never to leave her. The two women remained thus, with the blinds still down, while with a measured tread of heavy boots on the pavement and a clanging of steel the soldiers marched on, and on, and on * * * until finally Louise heard nothing more but the beating of her own, heart. I In front of the old gray house, holding his sword loosely, Maurice Toumiei had felt a terrible pang as he gazed up at those closed blinds. When the detach- Xnent had passed, he had stopped short, and then, walking back under pretense of inspecting his men, he had gazed and- gazed at that window. When at last the thick screen of poplar trees hid from him, first, the house, then the square, and last of all the little church, he oliuohod his teeth tightly together, for he felt sobs rising in hie throat, as though they would choke him. Suddenly, ashamed of his weakness, hardening hiinself by a tremendous effort of his will against his grief and emotion, he tried to feel anger instead, and he kept repeating to himself: "|t is all her pyide and vanity 1" 4»d twp Jives th^t jnigbt h, av e bless- fdea.ob, otUejrwere divided Land Goitipj OFFICES AT i WHEATON, MINN., ORTONVILLE, MINN ' And ALGONA, IOWA.
