MADAME THERESE'S IIEN
"Mon DieuT' exclaimed a woman's
alarmed, vexed voice. "Mon Dieu, I
did always doubt the rank of a hen's
intellect Parblieu! she have none
at alL Ma belle lamp it is ruin."
I rose and opened the door of an
adjoining room that I might sea
wh&t disturbed my hostess and. If
possible, help her. , I was visiting s
distant cousin of my husband's, Mme.
Theresa Teraud, a pretty, jolly little
creolo, whose connection with the
Blanks must have had both rise and
fall far back toward the prime an
cestor of us all Adam, for she
seemed wholly French to me. Her
vivacity and childlike abandon, her
expressive gestures and the oddity of
her speech all tended to make people
like her. '
As I opened the door Mme. Theresa
threw up her hands in token of de
spalr, and at the same time motioned
me to be silent Seeing nothing
more alarming than a little woman
standing in the middle of a very
pretty room, I was about to with
draw, when she pointed toward s
window. There, hanging on the
wall, was a qualnly-fashloned In
dlan oasket which served as s
"cetch-alL" This was of untinted
cane, bordered with s strip of color
and matched the furnishings of the
room a if made on purpose.
Tn this basket was A great commo
tion. One of Mme. Tboree's prized
Leghorns had become imbued with
the determination to rise in the World
or to fancy a novelty in nests, ss If
she had contracted some of the eccen
tric turns of her mistress. On a table
beneath the basket rested a really
beautiful and artistic lamp, whloh
was plainly worth more than all of
Mme. Therese's Leghorns, but for
which I should not just then have
cared to hazard a large bid as an in
vestment "Le souvenir Cf mon cousin
Adolphe," gasped Mme. Theresa.
"Chrcesmas goef, you say it"
Adolphe was a young cadet and
was then vlltlng in the , house. He
was a handsome youth of about 19
and promised, when he should have
lost some of his fondness for uniforms
and other outward trappings, to make
a worthy man. He was another of
Mme. Therese's relatives through the
Adam branch. He was as blondo s
youth as would be found In a search
covering the proverbial month of
Sundays, and was a great' favorite
of Mme. Therese through the simple
attraction of opposite natures , :
This lamp, she told me, had been
"My dear Theresa," I said, "Let us
remove it at once."
Non, non," she cried out 'Col
ombo is one timid bird and will fly
upon it certalnment."
Mme. Therese was unfeignedly dis
tressed; but I am rather matter
of fact, and as there was plainly
nothing to be gained through stand
ing there chattering and gesticulat
ing over a thing one was on no ac
count to touch, I suggested that we
retire and leave the fowl to her own
What is in the basket?" I inquired.
There was, Mme. Therese answered
tearfully, but a packet of flower seed,
two samples of crochet worsteds and
a chiffon affair that she chose to style
"Too late to grieve for them," I
thought, but I soothed Mme. Therese
by saying carelessly that the hen
would probably soon satisfy herself
of the unfitness of tbe situation, and
would,' unless frightened, fly down
without barm to her treasure. We
withdrew to the parlor. A few min
utes later a caller came and I forgot
The visitor was a dignified but
affable minister, of whom Mme.
Theroso stood in somo a wo. Pres
ently from the next room sounded s
wild and exultant cackle that caused
the briefest of amused smiles to flit
across the gentleman's faoe, and
which announced that Colombo had
not quietly quitted the basket as I
had predicted. Her jubilations were
out of all proportion to the demands
of the occasion, and were in thorn
solve bad enough without Mme.
Therese embarastnent, which led
her to rush from the room to the res
cue really to the domolltlonof
'The gantlemaa made his adieus
amidst - s crash of delicate wares,
fluttering of wlags, shrill cackles and
the soaroeily let thrill lamentations
of Mine. Theresa, whleh told that
Adolphe' gfr was aumbertd with

had said, in her own captivating way
she threw her arms about my neck
and declared we would go for a walk
and forget the whole thing.
When she will, she will, you may
depend upon it," does not apply to
the neadstrongness of women alone.
It included Colombo; at least of hen
kind. Mme. Therese refused to part
with her pet It was impossible in
that climate and season to close the
doors against her. The mere men
tion of solitary confinement was
contrary to Mme. Theresa's humane
She tore a wide rent in a new bed

of the dressing case on tbe day af
Monsieur Teraud, a large, placid
man, seated himself In his armchair
on a certain evening wltb disastrous
results, and he did not confine his re
reproaches to the French tongue.
This conduct on the part of the hen
went on many days. My hopot that
Colombo would be truer to tbe in
stincts of her tribe in tbo mattor of
sitting than in nesting seemed futile,
for she as yet gave no signs of ac
quiescence. It remained to Adolphe
to effect her reformation.
' The revolution resulted In blood
shed, after the manner of revolutions
in general. Adolphe bad with him
two of hi oherished uniforms De
tecting s loose stitch in a coat one
day he handed it to Mme. Therese to
be repaired. She mended it, and
sfterwarda hung It in her own ward
robe until it should be called for.
Soon afterward Colombo found, the
door 9pen with the usual sequence.
"Mme. Therese only laughed when she
aw that s picturesque new sunhat
had been appropriated by Colombo.
Next day L Tlraud threw his

When, s iittle later, aV.olphe
wanted hi coat, he was sent to find
it, and rummaging about for it in the
true masculine fashion he displaced
the coat from its hook and it fell
upon the floor along with the slippers
and the erstwhile picturesque hat
He did not inspect the coat after his
wontod painstaking and dust-fearing
manner, but put it on and hurried
away to join a pleasant party.
Adolphe was used to attracting
attention, which, indeed, he rather
liked and expected. This day, how
ever, he was given a surfeit, and
often he rather wondered why hi
companions should smile so much
and yet look so determinedly serious
when he glanced up. He was proud
spirited,, and choHO neither to resent
the seeming rudeness of his compan
ion nor to appear to see it.
Adolphe. was considered s little
priggish and vain, and had during
this visit mado fewer friends than
admirers. No one felt it a duty to
call bis attention to a purely personal
matter, and no one was present whom
he cared to question. He was
thoroughly mystified and uncomfort
able and when a suppressed titter
from a group behind him changed to
blank solemnity the moment he faced
about, he found It too muoh for him,
and, curtly excusing himself, strode
off home in secret high dudgeon.
"What can have brought the boy
home so early P" I remarked to Mme.
Therese as Adolph passed us where
we sat on the veranda.
Mme. Therese glanced up from her
novel; then, springing to her feet
with a little exclamation, ran after
him. She presently returned carry

its colors rather than by its cut

Adolphe's mortification and anger
were 1 extreme, and Mme. Therese
herself wavered for the first time in
the stubbornness which she had
vaunted as loyalty to a pet and In
clined a little toward tho side of her
irate kinsman. I think aho was a
little ashamed of the annoyances to
which she had, for a mere childish
whim, subjected her household.
Adolphe, moreover, was as implacable

FALL RIVER MILLS CLOSED.
One-Tbird of th Cotton Production af
, tb City Cot OK
, . Fall Bivxb, Mass., Aug. 7. "About
700,000 spindles stopped here to-night
for an indefinite period," is the
sentence attached by brokers to their
weekly statement of tbe condition
of the cloth market sad the M nle
Spinners' association lead off . its
monthly circular with , the words:
"Husband your resources." Tbe two
expressions picture the mm situatioa
here to-day about as clearly a it can
be painted in words
The following mills will close to
night for one wee', but the greater
portion for four, and probably for sis
weeks: American linen, 87,000 spindles;
Anawan, 10,000; Fall River manufac
tory, 28,000; Flint 42,000; Oranlm
81,000; King Phillip, 105,000; Laurel
Lake, 35,000; Metaoomet 28,000;
Richard Borden, 83,000; Robeson. 25.-
000; Seaconnet 35,000; Shove, 60,000;
B tafford, 65,000; Wampanoag,68, 000, and
Weetamoe, 34,000. These represent one-
third of all the mills in the city.
beven thousand operatives will be Idle
and 966,000 will be taken from circula
tion by tne loss in wages. Other mills
will follow , their example and some
that are nominally running have
many idle looms, . .;,,.,
In many and perhaps In the major
ity of cases the poor state of trade is
tbe cause that will directly affect the
length of time the mills are to be idle.
Tbe weekly cloth statement issued
to-day shows that goods are still ac
cumulating here despite the curtail
ment of production .from 100,000 U
173.000 pieces. The sales , were only
41,000 piee hardly tbe production
of eight good mills and moat of thea
were made on a ruinously low basis.
