the work of cleaning up an Old cannon

Helm formed a great liking for the

of manner and expansive good humor

turned M. RoussHlon’s knowledge of

that he soon had very ptfeasant rela-

Vincennes. They pursued their nar-

lent results and redoubled those social
gayeties which, even in hut and cabin

the piece de resistance was Oncle

ited him one evening in his hut—it
might better be called a den—a curi-
ously built thing, with walls of vertical
poles set in a quadrangular trench dug
In the ground, and roofed with grass.
Inside and out it was plastered with
clay, and the floor of dried mud was as
smooth and hard as concrete paving.
In one end there was a wide fireplace
grimy with soot, in the other a mere
peephole for a window; a wooden
bench, a bed of skins and two or three
stools were barely visible in the gloom.

waves and the doubtful light reflected
from fading clouds and Sky. Now and
again the man stood up in his skittish
pirogue, balancing himself with care, to
use a short pole in shoving driftwood
out of his way, and more than once he
looked to Beverley as if he had plunged
headlong into the dark water.
Bcvorley stood at ease, idly and half
dreamily looking ou. when suddenly
something caused a catastrophe, wfcteh
for a morncst he did net comprehend.
In fact, the man In the pirogue came
to grief, as a man in a pirogue is very

She led the way to a pleasant little
court in the rear of the cabin's yard, a
space between two wings and a vine
covered trellis, beyond which lay a
well kept vineyard and vegetable gar-
den. Here she turned about and faced
him, poising her foil with a fine grace.
“Are you ready?” she inquired.
He tried again to force a way into
the depths of her eyes with his, but he
might as well have attacked the sun,
so he stood in a confusion of not very
well defined feelings, undecided, hesi-
tating, half expecting that there would
be some laughable turn to end the af-

demanded after a short waiting in
He laughed now and whipped the air
with his foil.
“You certainly are not in earnest?” he
said interrogatively. “Do you really
mean that you want to fence with me?”
“If you think because I’m only a
girl you can easily beat me, try it,”
■he tauntingly replied, making a level
thrust toward his breast.
Quick as a flash he parried, and then
a merry clinking and twinkling of steel
blades kept time to their swift move-
ments. Iustantly,- by the sure sense
which Is half sight, half feeling—the
sense that guides the experienced fenc-
er’s hand and wrist—Beverley knew
that be had probably more than his
match, and in ten seconds his attack
was met by a time thrust in opposition
which touched him sharply.

l ather Beret was Dot only weil nigh
drowned, but seriously hurt. He lay
for a week on a bed In M. Roussillon's
toAse before he could sit up. Alice
hung over him night and day, scarcely
sleeping or eating until he was past ali
danger. As for Beverley, he shook off
ail the effects of his struggle in a little
while. Next day he was out, as well
and strong as ever, busy with the
affairs of his office. Nor was he less
happy on account of what the little ad-
venture had cast into his experience.
It is good to feel that one has done an
unselfish deed, and no young man’s
heart repels the freshness of what
comes to him when a beautiful girl
first enters his life.
Naturally enough, Alice had some
thoughts of Beverley while she was so
attentively cariug for Father Beret.
She had never before seen a man like

When Beverley, taking his leave,
passed through the gate at Roussillon
place, he met Rene de Renville going
in. It was a notable coincidence that
each young man felt something trouble-
some rise in his throat as he looked
into the other's eyes.
A week <*f dreamy autumn weather

where the fading vine leaves mane

pered breeze blew deliciously cool from
over the distant multicolored woods.
Tiie men of Vincennes were gathering
their Ijidian corn early to dry it on the
cob for grating into winter meal. Many
women made wine from the native
grapes and from the sweeter and richer
fruit of imported vines. Mrs. Koussil
ion and Alice stained their hands a
deep purple during the pressing season
and Beverley found himself engaged in
helping thorn handle the juicy crop,
while around the overflowing earthen
pots the wild bees, wasps and hornets
hummed with an incessant, jarring j
Jean, the hunchback, gathered ample -
stores of hickory nuts, walnuts, hazel-
nuts and pin oak acorns. Indeed, the
whole population of the village made a
great spurt of industry just licfore the
falling of winter, and presently, when
every preparation had been completed
for the dreaded cold season, M. Rous-
sillon carried out his long cherished
plan, and gave a great party at the
river house After the most successful
trading experience of his life he felt

I consider Wins of Cardui snperior
to any doctor’s medicine I ever used
and f know whereof I speak. 1 suf-
fered for nine months with suppressed
menstruation which completely pros-
trated me. Pains would shoot through
my back and sides and I would have
blinding headaches. My limbs would
swell up and I would feel ao weak I
eould not stand up. I naturally felt
discouraged for I seemed to be beyond
the help of physicians, but Wine of
Cardni came as a God-send to me. I
feit a change for the better within a
week. After nineteen days treatment
I menstruated without suffering the
agonies I usually did and soon became
regular and without pain. Wine of
Cardui is simply wonderful and 1 wish
that all suffering women knew ol it*
