while the partner conducted the btui- !

This partner had found a way to tha
good graces of Julien's father, and to
make the wife look not unkindly upon
him. This sprightly and beautiful
woman, much younger than her hus
band, had not failed to perceive the
tiperiority of the partner.
One day her husband went away con
fident and happy, on a long tour, after
bidding an affectionate od cu to his
wife and his daughter, a pretty three-1

Tho husband wished to create no scan

ciently edified as to who was tho culprit,
and he snmmond his partner to liquidate I
their business at onee, nt any price.
His fortune was almost swallowed up
in certain complicated accounts which he
would not even discuss. Mis only aim
was to be rid of his partner and vx
friend, cause of his misfortune,
Julien Masly had thus found in his
family only enemies, thrusting upon
hlra from his birth the pitiless bitter
ness of a dishonored life.
By and by tho motluir, who could not
survive tho erring wife's despair, died.
The husband, whose nnme he bore, re-
married, und then every pretext was1

as yon can. I feel that I shall always
be, on'no matter what horizon, a storm
cloud which every one wants brushed
away. I simcrely desire for your sake

They parted after these strong words.

The l'rince was rent to rejoin his o'd
companions of the Equinox. Julien had
not expected this. Never had he made
tho least effort to discover the ex-ensign,
and he remained isolated in his
pride and hate of his fellow-men.
But nov that they were thrown to
gether again, J alien metimes forgot
his gloomy' silence and exchanged a
few words with the Prince.
One day, shortly before the armistice,

Neither is happy, and both refuse to

was suid that Russia would pay part

poverty is so proud that it will gladly

Tho sensible donation for America to

if her people have no money, that tho
