Midway between Knropu and Africa,
its shores washed by tho bluo waters of
tho Meditenanean, lies tho littlo iHlnud
of Miiuucn. Out of tho beaten lino of
travel, overlooked ly encrgotio tourists,
it holds its only dlrcet cotninuuicntiou
with eivillution through tinnip nteam

Tho largest city Port Muhon clam

harbor in an nimlchs way, and on flnb

dazzling whitcuchS against tho intcnao

Tho cobblo paved streots aro marvel'
ously clean, mid tho people, in their
quaint, gay costumes, stand out with
picturosquo effect against tho stuccoed
walla wlrich Huo tho wny.
On n cliff overhanging tho harbor and
tho city is 11 plaza called tho Alameda,
where n few ilex trees nfford n grateful
shade On ono of tho low stono benches
many a pleasant hour may bo dreamed

Qno evening not long ago n younf
girl was seated on tho low wall watch
ing tho him staking hi tho cloudless
sky. Tko usual threo cornered man
tilla draped her graceful head, und her
long, slender lingers toyed with tho
ends hnngiiig over her shoulders. Sho
represented out of tho better class, wkh
tho iutonso homtheui beauty of the peas
ant idealized. Hor black hair waved
off n low forehead, ptiltlehs of tho
pointed, "friz" which dlhflgurcd tho
faco of thaso who apo tho Pnrisinn fash
ion. Her brows woro heavy, and her
dark eyes, riveted on tho harbor below,
seemed to reflect tho sunset light. Bho
was watching largo yacht which,
with idl (.ails Fot, was gliding slowly,
liko boino htatuly bird, to its anchorage,
Tho rattling of tho anchor clurins
routed her and broko tho loirg siloaco
which hho had w pci'sistcntly main
taiuod with her companion, a yotuig
man of Rptuiish type. A mixtnro of
northern blood lightened his olivo com
plexion nud lcfliied hissensuons houtliern
features. Ills wniHt was circled by n
red snHh, nud his woikworn hands twist
ed a bright colored turban, fashiouod
from n liugo handkerchief.
His piiFMoiuito gn'o I'ontiasted
strongoly with tho girl's indifference,
"La Delhi Jncquitn" hho was called,
nnd well did hho descrvo her nnmol
What was ho that ho hhonld wiu her,
Jncquitn looked up nnd smiled.
As when tho sun, breaking through

and light, ho did that smiio truusflguro

His gno met hers pride, nnger, pas

and go nt n girl's uod. Todpy I offer
you my life, my hc;irtl A man's deaicst
hopes nnd desires hnvo I laid baiv. How
havo you answered?"
Ho. waited. Jncquitn pushed tho
gravel potulantly with hor foot, watch
ing tho pobbles tly, withn half mocking
smilo on her lip's Again ho spoke:
"I know you nro 'La Delia' of Ma
lion, but I, too, havo prided Keep your
scores of admirers, but know thnt from
today thero is 0110 less ono mnn moro
is nothing in tho tnlo of your conquests.
You nro 'La Holla, ' and tho man who
makes yon lovo him must needs bo more
than human stronger than Iclipc,
Never ngniu will I bo ridiculed, mocked,
as I hnvo been today 1"
Jncqnitn trembled slightly, but sfrll
smiled. Sho waited. Then, looking up,
Bho wild, "Fulipo, I urn sorry" but
Felipo had gouo.
Thnt night Jncquitn wept wit h fear,
excitement aud tho triumph of having
brought Felipo so low its to beg her as
ho hnd done that evening. "Ho will io
turu, " thought alio. "They nlways do, "
Next day tho paity fioni tho yacht
made tho tour of tho town. A littlo boy
of about 0 years of ago was tho lifo nnd
center of inteiest of tho group. Clad in
a sailor buit, his golden curls waving
under his white cap, ho formed n (strong
contrnit to tlio dark skinned children
who stared as ho passed them by, X
pretty blond girl followed with an old
crly gentleman, nud ns sho wont along
Jncqnlto, seeing her oxqnisito fairness,
thought, "Tho angels must look like
All thnt dayFcllpo enmo not, and tho
ppcech of gcntlo reproof which Jacqulta
hnd prepared was not dollTcrcd. Hh
began to wonder whether she had hot

Lifo would Ijo ns nothing with Felipo
Evening enmo nud found Jncqnitn
nnd her mother seated nt their door con
versing with tlio neighbors, leaning out
of window or strolling past. Tho "snm-mor-wluter,"
ns they call our "Indian
Bummer," lingered Into thnt year.
A group gathered, nmong them Fran
ceses, tho rival beauty. Sho was larger
in ovcry way than Jacquita. To many
sho was moro attractive, being less chary
of her brilliant smiles and jests.
"Host heard tho iiows?" sho was say
ing. "As tho 'Inglcsi' wero walking
back to tho yacht this nftcmoon down
on tho quay tho littlo boy, catch
ing sight of a largo dog ahead,
ran after him along tho edgo of
tho wator. Suddenly, 'Ah, Santissima
Maria 1' ho cried out and then tho wa
ter closed over him! Felipo was there
nud jumped in after him. Thoro was
no danger," sho added, glancing mali
ciously at Jacquitn's palo faco, "and in
n moment moro ho was being embraced
by tho piotty yonng lady. Bat Follpol
Milord overwhelmed him with thanks,
offeicd him money, which tho fool ro
fused, aud finally asked if ho know tho
sea und wouiU enro to como with him
ns 11 sailor. For n moment Felipo hesi
tated, but" and hero tho bright look
on Jacquitn's faco faded "ho finally
said, 'Yes, Milord,' nud so ho goes to
morrow I Ah, but ho is n brnvo lad, that
Felipe, and a lncky ono I Somo of us
will enre, but to thoso who havo no
hearts" and horo sho glanced coldly at
tho girl sitting hilcnt besldo her "to
thos.0 it will mako no difference."
Just then Felipo himself sauntered
up. Thero was n differouco between this
nouchalcnt' young sailor, bearing his
honors bo lightly, and tho passlonnto
lover of tho night before, "Good luck,
Felipo 1" somo ono called, nnd Francesco,
again tho hpokeswomau, cried, "Your
fumo has flown beforo jjou, nnd your
good fortuno makes us envi'ous."
Felipo turned to Jacquita. Sho waB
talking nuimatcdly to a young follow
be.sido her seemingly oblivious of all
else. Felipe's faco darkened. Then,
laughing, ho turned, saying: "Como,
friends, lot us havo n merry tlmoon this
our last night togothor. Como, drink
my health and prosperity with mo I"
"Si! Sll" they answorod.
Jacqulta alono declined. She was
"too tired," sho said haughtily. Fran
cesco, shrugging her shoulders, mur
mured: "Ono of her ugb mortis! Ban
tlsslmawhat a temper I"
Jnaojuttn listened to tho e treat in
fanrstops, and hor iomieast eyes filled
with tears, why, Bho woald Hot own to
hewolf. A quick stop Bounded, nvoico
wild, "Jacquita!" Something falso
prido iierhnps or fear lest Felipo should
seo hor weeping held down her eyes,
but she smiled.
"Thou didst not Bay 'Addio,' or oven
n lucky wash, Jacquita!"
Silence, then a smothered oath broko
from his lips, and cro sho could friuno
tho words of farewell still lingering on
her tonguo sho heard him striding down
tho stroot. As ho turned tho corner,
Himtchos of u waltz ono of Francesco's
favorites camo floating back to her.
Early tho next morning, while tho
Alameda yet lay wrapped in sleep, a girl
Ironed ovor tho son wall, gazing with
burning eyes at tho beautiful boat bo
low. Tlio bustlo of departuro rcarhod
her straining ears, aud sho saw a row
boat speed out to tho ship. A cheor roso
from thoso on shoro as with a final pull
tho anchor was hauled uboard. Tho
broad sails filled slowly, and sho slipped
away an silently ns sho enmo away into
tho purplo mists of tho morning, away,
nnd bearing with her nwholo lifo's grief
" 'Lo Dcllo Jacquita' is going daft,"
cries Francesco as every night tho girl
walks to tho Alameda, watching for a
boat that never comes.
Ono ovoningsho Eat gazing nt a tramp
steamer just anchored. Sho recalled that
other night, and tho boat now bo far
away. Alas for tho prido of "Lo Bella
of Million!" Tlio setting sun covered her
with its golden light Her dark eyes
glow lnrger with unshed tears. Then a
voico said softly, "I havo como back to
