FOR BEAUTY, NOT PLUMBING

In our anxiety to get results In
France we were often tnetless from a
French point of view. This cause of
Irritation was exaggerated by our gen
eral Ignorance of tho language. I won

And we ran Into certain French
peculiarities which we found It hard to
understand. For example, enrly In our
war a fine old chntean near Bordeaux
was leased for a headquarters. By the
terms of the lease we were to leave
everything exactly ns we found It.
The chateau In Its four or Ave huridred
years of existence had never known
sanitary plumbing; tho owners bathed
In wash basins or rubber tubs. Ex
pecting to stay a long tlmo we In
stalled, by permission, drains, bath
tubs, toilets, a water-heating system.
When, last Janilury, we ended the
lease and moved out the ofllcer who
conducted the business offered to lcavo
tho plumbing where It was, slnco Its
removal would cost as much as It was
worth. Tho French owner refused. Wo
had to tako out our plumbtng. What
ho wanted from that chateau was not
sanitation, but venerablo beauty, and
tho sense that he dwelt In the same
Identical home as his ancestor of the
tenth generation back.

For twci days Nelson Wade had been
a guost at the one hotol nt Leosvllle.
Hewns sa reserved and unobtrusive
and so.pci -istent In not going out ex
cept after dark that the bonlfuce at
tho hblteliy wus divided between the
surnllsos iisjo his being a detective or
bank burglar. Not that poor Wado
resembled either of the Ilk Indicated,
for a more forlorn individual it would
have been hard to find.
Nelson had come from Dover, 50
miles dlsiiint, nnd his forlornness
harked bails directly to that quiet lit
tle town. 'llior& he bnd lived from
boyhood, there he hnd met nnd loved
pretty, vivacious Nettle Mercer nnd
had become engaged to her. Now that
delightful partnership was rudely sun
dered, nntl Nelson deemed himself the
most wretched of mankind.
A silly quarrel had led to the deso-
lnt!6n thnt now filled his aching heart.
Fiery Jealous and resentful, Nettle had
called her recreant lover to time be
cause ho had gone with a girl visiting
his sister In search of early violets on
"You mndo sure not to bring mp nny
of the spring bcnutlesl" she told him,
and before Nelson could explain to
Nettle that the girl was to bo mar
ried In a mouth and that he only
showed her the most ordinary courtesy
as' a guest of his sister nnd that their
errand had been bootless, not one vio
let having been garnered. Nettle drew
tho engagement ring from her finger,
threw It at his feet and flounced from
Nelson did not pick up the circlet,
nor did he stay to plend forgiveness,
for he had done no wrong. Nor did
ho lower his dignity by glossing over
what he considered very reprehensible
action on the part, of Nettle. Ho went
to the city for a week, leaving her to
think over her Irrational jealousy and
temper. When he came buck ills con
fidence In her "cooling down" was con
"Nettle has gone to spend two
months with our relatives, the Doancs,
nt Lcesvllle," her sister explained to
him. "There Is a gentleman at Lces
vllle, too, she thinks a great deal of."
The gentleman In question was a
married cousin of Nettle, but her
maneuvering sister, older and wiser,
minded not Invention and a trifling de
celt to place the lovers on the road
to making up and behaving themselves.
Nelson found himself sunk Into utter
despondency at tho unexpected turn
affairs hud taken.
"Yes," he soliloquized, "I'll go to
Leesvllle. I'll mnnuge to como across
Nettle. I'll give her the violets nnd
tell her thnt, like them, my heart Is
withering nnd and I'll do It on my
knees, If necessary, for I cannot live
without her I"
And thus It wns that Nelson hnd
gone to Leesvllle, but to find his night
ly rambles of no avail. He hud locatod
the home of the Donnes, and hud hung
around it two whole evenings with
out catching a glimpse of Nettle, The
third evening he learned from an over
heard conversation of two . of tho
Doune girls In the garden that", Nettle
was sick In bed with u bud cold and
hod been confined to her room over
since her urrlvnl.
Just nt dusk two evenings later,
trailing past tho high rear fenco of tho
Doano grounds, the henrt of the long'
lng lover thrilled mightily as he noted
near a little rustic bovver n shnvvled
figure passing to and fro.' It was tho
first outdoor exercise the Invalid Net
tie had taken. Sho was alone. What

Nelson scaled tho high palings, got
over the top. There was a creak,
crnck, a crash, and he landed on the
other side In the garden, prone nnd
senseless. A servnnt coming from the
house uttered a sharp scream as she
noted the castastropho.
"Oh, Miss Mercer!" she cried out;
'someone Is hurt. Quick I quick I"
and Nettle came hurrying to the spot.
It was Just light enough to make out
the features of the prostrate Invader,
Then Nettle echoed the distraction of

"Oh, lie muy be killed 1" wailed the
