In every situation a woman is bound

with Eugenie. She waa beginning to un

will always be woven of love and aorrow

without a woniaa'a consolatiooa. and her
momenta of happiness were to be like

when all collected together they scarcely
filled the hollow of the hand. Trouble
seldom keep u waiting for them, and for
Eugenie they were gathering thick and

Mme. Grandet wag grave and ceremoni

his neck and kissed him. "Aha! child,"
he said, "I am thinking and working for

must have money, for you won"t get any

"It ia too cold, let na have breakfast,"
Eugenic answered.
"Well, then, after breakfast we w!!l
have a look at it, eh? It will be good
for our digestions. That great des
Grassins sent us this, all the same," he
went on, "to get your breakfast, children,

By 11 o'clock they had finished break
fast. "Clear everything away," Grandet
told Nanon. "but leave us the table. We
can look over your little treasure more
comfortably so." he said, with his eyes
on Eugenie. "Little, said I? 'Tis not so
mall, though, upon my word. Your coins
altogether are actually worth 5,1)45
francs, then with forty more this morn
ing, that makes G.OoO francs all but one.
Well, I will give you another franc to
wake up the eum. Listen. Eugenie, you
mtiKt let me have your gold. You will
not refuse to let your papa have it? Eh,
little daughter?"
Neither of the women spoke.
"I myself have no gold left. I had
some once, but I have none now. I will
give yon 6,000 francs in silver for it, and
yon shall invest It; I will show you how.
There is really no need to think of a
dowry. When you are married I will
find a husband for you who will give
yon the handsomest dowry that has ever
been heard of hereabouts. There is a
splendid opportunity just now; you can
Invest your (1,000 francs in government
stock, and every six months when divt-

don't like to part with your gold, eh? Is
that It, little girl? Never mind, let me

and what with the coins I shall give you
OB your birthday and so forth, you will
star half your little hoard again in three

francs in the funds. What do you say,
little girl? Look up, child! There!
There! bring it here, my pet. You owe
me a good kiss for telling you business
aocreti and the mysteries of the life and
death of five-franc pieces. Yes, indeed,
the coins live and gad about just like
men do; they go and come and sweat and

toward the door; then she turned ab

and said:

"All your fold Is gone!" echoed Gran
dot, starting op, as a horse might rear
when the cannon thunders not ten paces
from him.
"Grandet! yon will kill m with your
angry 6ts," said the poor wife.
"Tut, tut, tut; none of your fsmljy
' over die. Now, Eugenie! what have you
done with your money?" be burst out as
' ho turned upon her.
The girl waa on her knees beside Mme.
. "Look, sir," she said, "ray mother la
-very ill do not kill her."
Grandet waa alarmed; his wife's dnrk,
allow complexion had grown so white.
"Nanon, come and help me np to bed,"
he said In a feeble voice, "This Is
killing me "
Nanon gave an arm to her mistress,
ad Eugenie supported her on the other
Ido; bnt it was only with the greatest
diUcnlty that they reached her room, for
tfce poor mother's strength completely
failed her. Grandet waa left alone In
the parlor. After a while, however, be

her. "Yon look down on your father, do

U not everything to you. he ia nothing.
Now, where i your gold?"
"I do respect you and love yon, fath
er, in spite of your anger; but I would
very humbly point out to you that I am
twenty-two years old. Yoa have told me
that I am of age often enough for me
to know it. I have done aa I liked with
my money, and rest assured that it ia in
good hands."
"That ia an inviolable secret," she said.
"It must be something very unsatis
factory. Mile. Grandet, If you cannot tell
your own father about it"
"It ia perfectly satisfactory, and I
cannot tell my father about it"
"Tell iue, at any rate, when you parted
with your gold. You atill had it on your
birthday, hadn't you? Eb?"
But if greed had made her father craf
ty, love had taught Eugenie to be wary;
she shook her head again.
"Iid any one ever hear of such obsti
nacy, or of such a bobbery?" cried Gran
det, iu a voice which gradually rose till
it rang through the house. "What! here
in my house, in my own house, some one
has taKen your guld! And I am uot to
know who it was? Gold is a precious
thing. The best of girls go wrong and

you have parted with your money, you
must have a receipt for it "
"Was I free to do a I wished with It
yes or no? Was it mine?"
At first Grandet was struck dumb by
his daughter daring to argue with him,
and in this way! lie turned pule, bump
ed, and finding words at last he shouted:
"Miserable girl! Oh! you know well
that I love you, and you take advantage
of it! Y'ou ungrateful child! She would
rob nnd murder her own father! You
would have thrown all we have at the
feet of that vaga!xud with the morocco
boots. By my father's pruning hook, I
cauuot disinherit you, but I can cui
you; you and your cousin and your chil
dren. Nothing good can come out of
this; do you hear? If it was to Charles
that But, no, that is impossi
ble. What if that miserable puppy should
have robbed me?"
lie glared at his daughter, who was
Mill silent and unmoved.
"She does not stir! She does not
flinch! She is more of a Grandet than
I am. Y'ou did uot give your gold away
for nothing, anyhow. Come, now, tell
me about It"
Eugenie looked np at her father; her
satirical glance exasperated him.
"Eugenie, this is my house; so long as
you are under your father's roof you
must do aa your father bids you. You
are wounding all my tenderest feelings,"
he went on. "Get out of my sight until
you are ready to obey me. Go to your
room and stay there until I give you
leave to come out of It Nanon will
bring you bread and water. Do you hear
what I say? Go!"
Eugenie burst into tears, and fled
away to her mother. Grandet took sev
eral turns in his garden .without heed
ing the snow or ths cold; then, sus
pecting that his daughter wouid be in
his wife's room, and delighted with the
idea of catching them in flagrant disobe
dience to orders, he climbed the stair as
stealthily as a cat, and suddenly appear
ed in Mme. Grandet's room. He was
right; she was stroking Eugenie's hair,
and the girl lay with her face hidden in
her mother's breast.
"Poor child! Never mind, yonr father
will lelent"
"She has no longer a father!" said
the cooper. "Is it really possible, Mme.
Grandet, that we have brought such a
disobedient daughter into the world! A
pretty bringing up; and pious, too, above
all things! Well! how is it you are
not iu your roof? Come, off to prison
with you; to prison, mies!"
"Do yoa mean to take my daughter
away from me, sir?" said Mme. Gran
det as she raised a flushed face and
bright, feverish eyes.
"If you want to keep her, take her
along with you, and the bouse will be
rid of you both at once! Where is the
go'd? What has become of the gold?"
Eugenie rose to her feet, looked proud
ly at her father, and went inte her room;
the goodman turned the key in the door.
"Nanon!" he shouted, "you can rake
out the fire in the parlor;" then he came
back and sat down in sn easy chair, say
ing as he did so, "Of course she gave
her gold to that miserable fellow Charles,
who only cared for our money."
Mme. Grandet's love for her daugh
ter gave her courage in the face of this
danger: to all appearance she was deaf,
dumb and blind to all that was Implied
by this speech. 8he turned on ber bed
so as to avoid the angry glitter of her
husband's eyes.
"I know nothing about all this," she
said. "Your anger makes me so ill that

find out what he la, that Charles ol
yours, with bis morocco boots and hit
stand-off airs. He can have no heart and
no conscience, either, when be dares to
carry off a poor girl's money without tbt
consent of her parents."
A soon as the street door wss shut
Eugenie stole out of her room and came
to her mother'a bedside.
"You were very brave for your daugh
ter's sake," she said. "Oh! mother. I
will pray to God to let all the punish
ment fall on me."
"Is it true?" asked Nanon, comlni
upstairs in dismay, "that mademoiselli

"What does It matter, Nanon T' asked
Eugenie calmly.
"Why, before I would eat 'kitchen'
while the daughter of the house is eat

"I)on't say a word about It, Nanon,"
Eugenie warned her.
Grandet dined alone, for the first tim
in twenty-four year.
"So you are a widower, sir." said Na
non. "It a very dismal thing to be
widower when you have a wife and
daughter in the houe."
"1 did not speak to you, did I? Keep
a still tongue in your head, or yon will
have to go. There will be some peop'i
here this evening; light the fire."
"There will be some people here tliii
evening; light the fire."
The Cruchots and their friends, lime,
des CrasMtis and her son, all came in
about 8 o'clock, and to their amazement
saw neither Mme, Grandet nor het
"My wife ia not very well to day,
and Eugenie is upstairs with her," re
plied the old cooper, without a trace ol
perturbation on his face.
After an hour spent in more or le
trivial talk Mme. des Grassing, who had
gone upstairs to see Mme. Ornudet,
came down again to the dining room, and
was met w ith a general inquiry of "How
is Mme. GraBdet?"
"She Is very far from well," the lady
said gravely. "Her health seems to be
in a very precarious state. At her time
of life you ought to take great cave of
her. Papa Grandet"
"We shall see," said the vine grower
abstractedly, and the whole party took
leave of him. As soon as the Crnrhots
were out In the street and the door was
shut behind them, Mme. des Grassln
turned to them aud said, "Something has
happened among the Grandels. The
mother is very ill, and the girl's eye are
red, as if she had been crying for a long
while. Are they wanting to marry het
against her will?"
That night when the cooper had gone
to bed, Nanon, iu list slippers, stole up to
Eugenie's room and displayed a raised
pie, which she had managed to bake in
a saucepan.
"Here, mademoiselle," said the kind
soul, ' Cornoiller brought a hare for me.
You eat so little that the pie will last
you for quite a week, and there is no
fear of its spoiling in this frost You
shall not live on dry bread, at any rate;

"Poor Nanou!" said Eugenie, aa ahe
pressed the girl's hand.
"I have made It very dainty and nice,
and he never found out about it I paid
for the lard and the bay leaves out of my
six francs; I can surely do as I like with
my own money," and the old servant
fled, thinking that she beard Grandet

Til.lSH women
have b-en inviied,
even urged, to
take up aim pie
fashions, sud
have refused to
do so. Now they
are paying the
penalty, and its
nature is such s
to make It seem
likely thst a pe
riod of less elab
orate dressing
may not be far
sway. It comes
about through the
fact that our styl
hfh dresser thi
summer must uot
only get herself
up elaborately, hut
she should have a
lii er.il supply of fine costumes. A drey
gown or two no longer will MiftW, and
the coiiMiieiit bills are enough even to
make a fashionable womau pause and
think, and that is saying mint. The
fancy for harmony in color throughout
the entire costume ouly tends to make
tho wardrobe all the more costly, since it
make almost impossible putting parts
and accessories to double use. a trick ex
tremely helpful to economise, and
(whisper) to many women who are
mighty careful to conceal the mediums of
their saving. Current usage in this mut
ter of matching shades, or of fetching
them into harmony. Is so exacting that
sklmpers' tricks are practically taboo
in all this field of dress. Then when
standards were such that a dressy after
noon get-up rivalled evening finery for
the extent and delicacy of its embellish
ments, the preparing of a wardrobe
meant an outlay that would overwhelm
most women.
Turning to the very dresses prepared
to replace the short lived summer finery,
it will be found that the change is not
to be effected suddenly. At first glance
these new dresses seem a highly wrought
as were those of early Bummer. On con
sideration of many of them, however,
it appeal's that a larger proportion of the
embellish incut consists of self-trimming
used laviwhly in many cases, it Is true,
but even so, by no means so costly nr so
fanciful of appearance as was much of
tha earlier ornamentation. Yet on the

They were planned for late summer

Ho much of the foregoing as treat
of the perUhubiiity of the drcie of early
summer applic with considerable force
to the season's millinery. It had, as ap
pearing in the advance showings, the
look of extreme frailness that somehow
seemed to be almost the most desirable
characteristic of the season thia from
the standpoint of stylishness only. And
much of it proved to he as nenshshle ss
it looked. Shoppers disregarded the likeli
hood of its proving so, and countless
women who meant to put in dog days at
the seashore or lakeside carried away
bent hats all trimmed with chiffon, tulle,
ostrich plumes and teel glint. Twenty
four hours of fog brought ruin, and the
trade In hats has been, in coequeuce,
better than usual all summer. In th
headwear now finding purchasers ia less

there, and hints of what is to rule In
millinery duriug fall and winter are few
indeed. Sample hats appear here. In
the top row of the picture are a dark
green straw trimmed round the brim with
green and white straw and pierced with
two black quills; a black chip covered
