The girl fiit before tin; plnno In a
cozy pnrlor. Her graceful Ilgure wns
reflected In nn old-fashioned pier
glnnH, mid upon the ninrhle shelf of
the pier glnss were vnrlous orniiinon
tnl shells of n generation ago. The
while gown Unit (he girl wore was not
nn old-fashioned gown, and her beauti
ful hair was done In quite an approved
new fashion. As her lingers touched
the keys she glanced upward with
pretty unconscious coquetry Into the
attentive fare of a man who bent over
her. fie was tall,- this young man,
with the lltheness of an athlete, nnd
his deep-set blue eyes beneath their
fringed lids gave to him an nlr of sin
cerity and wisdom. Dick Drown would
make his way In the world, the proud
villagers prophesied, for already Dick
had started upon the way. Had he
not transferred the work of his fn
ther's farm to hired helpers while ho
himself attended college In n faraway
.city, returning no whit changed by the
experience from the frank, unpreten
tious lad he had always been un
changed, save In prnctlqnl application
of knowledge? The farm prospered
nncw under his supervision, while
Dick took the place which the town's
worn-out old lawyer was overwllllng
to lay aside. Kitty Dale was proud of
Dick. Well, Kitty knew that It was
she who had always been his Inspira
tion ; his thought of her u spur to do
his best. Kitty could not remember
n tlmo when she and Dickie Itrown
had not been companions and confi
dantes. Ho had carried her books
down hill from the academy when sho
had worn pink gingham and curls.
When Dick had crossed the seas to
fight for his beloved country, Kitty
was still his Inspiration and comfort
Sometimes, In the midst of heart-rending
struggle, Kitty and Dick's country
beenmo ono and the same. It was for
her sake, as well, that ho was doing
this thing. Hut sorrow was lost In
victory, absence forgotten In the re
stored Joy of the present.
Bending over the one that he loved
Dick sang tenderly, "Then you'll re
member me." It wan an old song they
both loved; Dick's eyes would grow
deep with meaning as he sang the
words, while Kitty would Hash up at
him at Its finish a smllo of sweet un
derstanding. Tonight she turned upon
the stool, regarding lilin apprehen
sively; he would not like the news sho
had foV hliii.
"Dickie," said the girl, "I'm going
nwpy to visit mother's sister In the
city," she added at hltf startled glance,
"nnd, for the rest of the winter per
haps. Aunt Kleanor feels that I
should see more of the world and
loam Its advantages. She Is very rich ;
It Is her pleasure to buy pretty frocks
and do for me some of the things sho
would like to do for her own dnughlcr
if she had one."
Kitty's mother spoko briskly from
nn adjoining room. "We feel It our
duty to let her go, Ulchard," she said.
"My sister who wns bore last week
for the ilrst time In years, was Just
taken with Kitty's appearance. Fa
ther's agreeable to the visit, too, so
wo'vo planned It for next week."
Dick Hrnwn held Kitty's hands
Inter as they stood In the old hall
snylng "good night."
"I am not going lo ask any prom
ise from yen before you go, llttlo
girl," be told Imr. "You know that I
And so Kitty went. The beautiful
city homo, the wonderful ontcrtulu-
.ments. the distinguished people who
visited atfAunt Eleanor's all were n
revelation to the girl who seemed to
grow In loveliness and In the coiill
denco of her surroundings. There
wns one personality, which dazzled
and absorbed her. Kitty In all her
secluded young life had not dreamed
Hint a man such an Kenneth Gordon
could exist outside pages of romance,
Gordon, prominent In tho world of
business, and feted as a singer, could
he ns companlonnhlo as Dickie Drown
himself. Kitty tried not to bo dlsloy
nl to her old friend, In realization of
many small courtesies which ho had
Incked. Kenneth Gordon bestowed
them wllh the manner of n knight, un
bellevnbly and miraculously, Kenneth
Gordon, the favored nnd admired,
loved her loved her, a llttlo country
girl. He had told her so, nnd In her
astonishment Kitty had delnycd an
swer to his plen. Aunt Kleanor was
Jubilant over the success of her se
cretly planned nciuovemcnt, nnd bo
sho gnvo that evening n muslcnle.
Kenneth Gordon should further seal
his conquest, wooing In Bong. Kitty
was very lovoly that evening ns sho
snt nnd listened. Hers would bo a
homo ns fine ns this; hers tho magic
of wealth nnd power. Dlcklo Drown
tn Ills plain llttlo Inw office formed no
pnrt of her' picture, Dlcklo Drown
with his drenms of reward nfter strug
glo, Then, nil nt once, to Kitty came
a distinct memory picture. A cozy
room In shndod light, nn old piano,
i nnd over tho plnno n innn's flguro
bending. Hyos, bluo eyes doop with
sincerity, gazed Into her own. Ken
noth Gordon's volco rang out now In
that self-same song:
"Thero may porhnps In such a scene,
Some recollection be
Of days that have, as hnppy been,
Then you'll romembor nio."
Kitty turned to her mint a sob In
"I'm going homo," she whispered
breathlessly. "Oh I I must go home
to lovo aud Dickie."
AGE - OLD BUILDING MATERIAL

torrc, betrays n French origin nnil.
from Its general iippenrunre, might
well Miggest some affinity with the
world of art Thexe preliminary Im
presslons. however, will be found mis
leading. There Is nothing peculiarly
French In pise dwellings, though they
aro common enough in some parts of
France, and reference to them nbounds
In French llternture of the eighteenth
The word Itself, traced to Its Latin
origin, apparently means nothing more
artistic than "battered." Perhaps the
simplest definition of pise Is provided
by I'llny the Elder, who cnlls It
"earth battered between boards,"
meaning by boards a form such as may
be used for concrete In construction
The Hainan sage adds that it was an
old and well-tried system of building
and remarks that Hannibal used this
material for watch towers on the tops
of hills In Spain during bis campaign.
Who knows whether It was not also
In use when Cheops built his Great
Pyramid; for there nro prehistoric
pise buildings In New Mexico nnd Arl
zonu which, some sny, dato bnck al
most to that period?
Certainly history cannot trace tho
system to Its origin, and the pise
dwellings now visible In France, Spain,
America, the Drltlsh colonics and
elsewhere may give no complete Indi
cation of the extent to which this ma
terial wns employed In other centuries.
INDIAN'S TRIBUTE TO MOTHER
Red-Sklnned Fluhter In World War
Proves Worthy Descendant of
Race of Chiefs.
Wouiided-Wlth-Many-Arrows is an
Indian living In South Dnkotn.
According to an Indian custom, the
first thing an Indian mother sees or
says after her child Is born may ho
chosen as the Infant's name. The
night of his birth. In April. 1801. the
mother saw a warrior who hail neen
wounded by ninny arrows; hence the
name given to the new-born child.
Entering the world war In the
armies of the great white father at
Washington, the Ilrst thought of this
copper-skinned descendant of a jace
of chiefs was of his mother, whom lie
named as the beneficiary In bis $10,

The mother's name Is susim-i-oves-

among the first to respond to the call
of the United States for soldiers to
fight for their country; she was glad

A DUROQUE MODEL
By LOUISE M. ADDELSON.
(, mo. by .McClure Newnpuprr Syndicate.)
At an unusually
enrly hour one
morning Clnrlce entered the tittle
dress shop of Mine. Do Hevnl. - An
Important social affair was coming
off, for which sho wns, as yet, unpre
pared; and she was much pleased
when inadaine, with much enthusiasm,
Informed h"r that she had several
gowns exactly suited to Clarice's style ;
nnd figure. ' :
Clarice examined them carefully.
She hud discovered Mine. De Iteval n I
couple of yenrs before, when dwln- I
filing family funds forced her to stop
buying at the most exclusive store In i
town, and take what sho could get In
the smaller, more moderately priced
shops. The gowns designed by the j
clever little woman were ns dainty as
any she Had ever seen, with the addi
tional merit of being much cheaper.
Nobody, so far, bad detected any dif
ference In Clnrlce's mnnner of dress
ing, or suspected that her clothes did
not come from a more pretentious es
tablishment. So she continued to
patronize Mine. Do Iteval, and
inadatiie. In return, kept her choicest
models for Clnrlce.
Two gowns In partlculnr captivated
Clarice, each so soft In texture, so
dainty In design nnd delicate In shnde
that for some time she found difficulty
In making a selection. At last she de
cided tin a rich bluo as being more
suited to her complexion, and with a
lnst, lingering, regretful look at the
lovely rose-colored concoction of silk
nnd chiffon thnt she must leave be
hind, Clarice ordered her purchase
wrapped, saying she would take It
homo with her, as she wanted It for
While waiting on the corner for the
street car, Clarice was surprised to
seo approaching from tho opposite
side Mllllcent Gray, ono of her
numerous acquaintances. And to Clar
ice's astonishment Mllllcent walked
straight Into the store of Mme. De
Iteval. Mllllcent had alwnys boasted
of doing her shopping In tho more ex
clusive districts, and Clarice could
not help wondering wnt sho wns do
ing In this rather unfrequented part
of the town. She wns nbout to call
out, but Just then her enf enme In
sight and she hoarded It, much puz
zled. The following evening Clnrlce was
one of many guests at the function for
which her dress had been specially
bought. It wns a gain oecnslon. There
were wonderful gowns and the Hash of
multi-colored gems. Clnrlce, how
ever, did not feel ashamed of her cos
tume. It held Its own. In spite of the
higher-priced ones all around.
As shlnimory, ns lovely, ns wcll-mnde
ns any, It set off her blonde beauty
to perfection, nnd, stately as n young
goddess, she kept a crowd of ndmlrers
around her the whole evening. She
was obliged, in fact, to turn away a
good many would-be pnrtners.
It was late when Clarice caught
sight of Mllllcent Gray at the further
end of the room. Mllllcent beckoned,
and, tired of dancing, Clarice excused
herself to her partner and went over
to see what was wanted. Within n
few feet of her sho stopped, rooted to
the spot, for Mllllcent wore the roso-
colored gown which only the day
previous Clarice bad seen at Mine.
Seeing Clarice's surprise, Mllllcent
smiled with pleasure. She thought
her friend overcome with tho benuty
of her gown.
"It Is pretty. Isn't It? Ono of tho
newest at Stark's. A'Duroque model."
"A Duroquo model?" murmured
"A real Duroquc. They have so
few, even nt Sturk's. Isn't It n dnrl-
lug? Hut you hnvo n very pretty
dress on yourself. Where did you
"At Stark's. It's It's nlso a Du

rose-colored dress, nnd tried to ns
sumo a correct and admiring expres
s!ou, but quite suddenly and unox
pectedly she began to lough.
Mllllcent stnred resentfully, her
fnce red with anger.
Clarice went on laughing. "Oh, Mil
Hcent, please forgive me. I can't help

Mllllcent's face, which hnd turned
from red to white, grew red again
For n moment it looked ns If sho
would cry, but Clnrlco's lnugh wns In

began to glgglo until the two wcro nl
"Clarice," said Mllllcent, when they
were more composed, "this Is tho last

they cost less. I didn't hnvo tho cour

"Hereafter, If I got a gown from
Mme. Do Rovnl that cost n third loss
than the snmo nt Stnrk's, I'll let
the world know It, nnd look no more
for Duroque models."
