A POWERFUL WARSHIP.
HE MET HER ONCE.
It was 4 o'clock. Louise tru rnmvrng
long the pebbly path of her garden, flit
ting among the rose bushes like a butterfly
ad stopping from time to time to breathe
the perfume of a newly blown flower. M.
Jacques de Beauchamp entered the garden.
The little widow, perceiving him, hid her
elf behind an orange tree. Bnt Jacques
ran to her, and surprising her kissed her
on her forehead.
"Ah, Monsieur de Beaoohamp," ahe cried,
that is not nice of yon."
Louise was of medium height Bhe had
very small hands and feet, white shoulders
and thick black hair. Her teeth were so
whit that when she laughed they glistened
Louise leaned npon the arm of M, de
Beanchamp, and they went into the parlor.
They agreed so well that they bad planned
to be married. Nevertheless each of tbem
had a defect. M. de Beauchamp was jeal
ous and Mine, de Viry was coquettish.
"Louise," he said to her, "you will drive
me to despair. You say that you love me,
but how can I believe It when I see yon
smiling at every admirer and giving to ev
. ary corner so sweet a reception? When I
see yon in society so full of life and gayety
and hearyonr ringing laughter from the
midst of aoircle of ardent admirers, It is
impossible for me to tell you the tortures
and angnish I endure."
"What can 1 do, dear?" inquired Louise.
"I am gay, it Is true, but is that a crime?
And why should I be cold to those who ap
proach me only to say pleasant and agree
"You are a coquette, and your laugh
makes me despair because if you laugh
thus against my wish it must be only to
how your teeth. You know very well how
adorable yon are when in laughing with a
fixed purpose yon throw back your bead
and show your pretty wnite neck."
"But what must 1 do to prove my love
for you? It is becoming desperate. Ask
OI me wuat you please, uui, uu nut on uio
not to laugh any more. I am only hap
py when 1 am glad and free to be light
M. de Beauchamp assumed a solemn air.
"You said to me one evening that yon would
make for me the sacrifice of your life. I
do not ask so much as that But listen.
Do you wish to make me the happiest man
"You have bnt to speak."
"Even at the price of suffering?"
"Yes, at any price."
"Well, then, make me the sacrifice of ana
"What are yon demanding of met It la
"Only a tooth the smallest one. In the

much as you please."
"But you will think I am ugly ana wir.
Dot love me any more."
"I swear to you there is no other way to
assure my happiness,"
The countess rang the bell. John, her
valet, took her onlers and came bock a
quarter of an hour later with a gentleman

" Who is that person ?" asked 1L de Beau
abamp. The oountess answered:
"It is Mr. James, the American dentist,"
The little countess entered her boudoir,
followed by Nito, his tail between his legs,
as if he understood that something serious
was about to happen. Louise returned
shortly afterward ashamed and humbled
and gave to M. de Beauchamp a little tooth
as white as milk, which he carried to his
lips and covered with kisses. Seeing this
tribute of affection Louise ran away.
Jacques had the tooth set in a medallion
and carried it religiously around his neck
;, as a souvenir.
From that day the little countess became
very sad. Only upon rare occasions was
her face lighted up by a smile. Bhe kept
aloof from society as much as possible, but
when sue was forced by her social duties to
appear among her friends they saw her
keeping apart from the others or sitting in
a corner with a serious air, her month closed
like a prison door.
Jacques did not easily recognise her. In
tact, she was greatly changed.
"Poor countess," said sume evil minded
ones, "she is getting old. Howchangedshe
Is She seems to be mourning the dead. "
And Jacques felt his love diminish little
by little. He began to understand that
what he loved In her was especially her
' smile, her playfulness, her gayety, and he
also became sad. The more he tried to re
gain his love, which seemed to be leaving
him, the more he realised that he himself
had killed his passion.
One day he went in despair to lime, de
"Louise," he said, throwing himself at
her feet, "do you love me still?"
"I have sworuto love you always, and

"Will you prove to me the sincerity of

"Well, then, if you love me have Uio

"What folly is this?" said Louise, weep

would not love me any more. That is just
like you men. And you reproach us for be

"Louise, I beg you to forgive me. I curse
my Jealously my foolishness."

with which I acceded to your caprice?"
' "I am desolate and full of remorse."

The little countess gave a burst of laugh

I never read or hear of the mountains
that I do not recall a story told by a con
ductor of a train on the Great Northern
road, We were going to Butte. The train
had just crossed the river at-Great Falls.
From that point the road begins its eastern
ascent of the range whose tops are whit- '
ened with the snow all the year round. A
wide plain spreads out between the line of
the road and the range. As the train was
getting a "fresh hold on the rails," as one '
of the party expressed it, the conductor
stood on the rear platform of the coach and
looked steadfastly at one spot until it was
"Got a claim anywhere round therer'

ductor's longing look.
A kinder of a claim," he replied, "out
not the kind you're thinkln of."
How he came to tell us makes no omer-
encenow. Here Is wuat ne tgin:
Bout a vcarano. I think it was, a young
man was put on my train by the conductor
who had brought him to where I take it.
He had been east. His folks lived down
there, I believe. He had been west a good
many years, was a cowboy, then a deputy
marshal, then boss of a ranch, and then he
got to Bpeculatin in Anaconda. He had
lived the sort of life out here that a man
was expected to live in them days.
"He was a bard citizen and tnen a goon
one. Blest if I know just where he quit
off, but he did. He finally got tolovin a
girl, and just when he was bavin it the
wuat way she una and marries a good for
nothin dude that came out nere and got to
clerkin in a raghouse. Then the young
man that I am talkin about he goes east to
wear out his feelin's, I reckon. And he was
gone all summer. They said he was at tne
seaside. I thought when I heard that as
how he would not last long. When a man
quits this climate to go to the seaside, there
must be somethin mighty bad about his
case. If a man can't git cured here, he
needn't go anywhere else. -

It was the first time that the boye had seen
him do that since they met him, and they .

to set him up in his berth so he .could see.

Then I knowed It was all over. Then one

would take 81,000 to stop the train. I told .
'em I couldn't do anything of that sort.
They said money was no object. ' Then I
asked 'em what was up, and one of 'em told
me that he (meaning the dead man) had
made a last request Ciat he be taken from
the train and buried in sight of the moun

caught his eyes first after we had come over
the river. They said they had promised
him they would. I asked 'em where they
would get a box, and they said a man as
good as he was didn't need no box; that the
angels would take care of him as soon as
be was laid away.
I asked 'em what they would do if the
train wasn't stopped. They held a short
narley and said in a most respectiui way,
which I understood, that they bad to carry

that they could stop the train if I didn't.

out, and the dead was buried out there in
