days after reheasal- were I over the strollers were 0111thment at the theater did not begin fo about a week and meanwhile they managed to combine recreation with labor In nearly equal proportions As siduously they devoted themselves to a round of drives and rambles through pastures and woodland to Carrolton along the shell road to Lake Pontchar train to Biloxi the first settlement of the French and to the battle grounds once known as the plains of Chal mette where volunteer soldiers were now encamped awaiting orders to go to the front In the Mexican campaign For those who craved greater excitement the three race coursesthe Lou isiana the Mctairie and the Carrolton offered stimulating diversion Within sight of the Metalrie were the old dueling grounds under the oaks where it is related on one Sunday In 1839 ten duels occurred where the contestants frequently fought on horseback with sabers and where the cowherds says n chronicler became so accustomed to seeing honor satisfied in this manner that they paid little at tention to these meetings pursuing tholr own humble duties Indifferent to the follies of fashionable society The fencing schools flourished What mem ories cluster around that odd strange master of the blade Spcdclla a melI ancholy enigma of a man whose art embodied much of the finest shading and phrasing peculiar to himself from whom even ninny of Bonapartes discarded veterans were not above ac quiring now technique and tempera mentShortly after the players arrival began the celebrated Leduc matches at tracting noted men and women from nil over the south The hotels were crowded the lodging houses filled while many of the large homes hospitably opened their doors to visiting friends The afternoons found the city almost deserted The bartenders discontentedly smoked In solitude the le gion of waiters In the hotels and resorts became reduced to a thinly scat tered array while even the street vendors hind folded their tents and silently I stolen to the races On one such memorable occasion most of the memo hors of the Barnes company repaired to the Metalrie Below the grand stand brilliant with color strutted the dandles attending to tholr bets above they played a winning or losing game with the fair sex Intrigue and lovemaking were the or der of the hour and these daughters of time south beguiled time and mor tnlsIn a heyday of pleasure In thatI mixed gathering burly cotton planters from the country rubbed elbows with aristocratic Creoles whose attire was distinguishable by enormous ruffles and light boots of cloth The professional follower of these events the Impor tunate tout also mingled with the crowd plainly In evidence by the pronounced character of his dress the slzo of his diamond studs or cravat pin and the massive dimensions of his linger rings No paltry scrubby track cadger was this resplendent gentleman but a picturesque rogue with Impudence as pronounced as his jewels Surrounded by n bevy of admirers Susan sprightly and sparkling was an example of that frippery oue of her sex Is made up with a pasticcio of gauzes pins and ribbons that go to compound that multifarious thing a well dressed woman Ever ready with a quick retort she bestowed her fa vors generously to the evident discom fiture of a young officer In her retinue whom she hind met several days before and who ever since had coveted a full harvest of smiles liking not a little tho first sample he hind gathered How over It was not Susans way to In J trust herself fully to any one It was I all very Interesting to play one against another to Intercept angry gleams to hold in check clashing suitorsthis was I exciting and diverting but she exer cised care not to transgress those bounds where she censed to be mistress of the situation Perhaps her limits In coquetry were further set than most women would have ventured to place them but without this temerity and daring the pastime would have lost its charm for her She might play with edged tools but she also knew how to use them Near her was seated Kate indolent as of yore now watching her sister with an indulgent enigmatic expres sion anon permitting a scornful glance to stray toward Adonis who for hisII part lied eyes only for his companion n distinct change from country hot dens tavern demoiselles and tlolntyJJ wenches with their rough hands and J rosy checks This ladys hands were like milk her cheeks ivory and Adonis J in bestowing his attentions upon her hind a twofold purposeto return tit for tat for Kates flaunting ways and to gratify his own ever fleeting toncyI In a box half the length of the grand stand removed some distance back and to the left of Susans gay party Constance Mrs Adams and the soldier were also observers of this scene of animation f i li iiI r 1 l +tol r I 1 II 5 1 + Since tile managers sneeessrui mg from the landlord and the ansd SaintProsper had undergone little change At first it is true with the memory of the wild ride to the rive lesrs disturbing recollections of that strange dark night a certain reticence ha i marked her manner toward the soldie- but as time went by this touch of reserve wore off and was succeeded by her usual frankness or gayety In he eyes appeared at times a new thought fulness but for no longer period thanI the quick passing of a summer clou over a sunny meadow This half light o brief conjecture or vague retrospectionI only mellowed the depths of her gaze and Barnes alone noted and wondered But today no partial shadows launder y the black shading lashes TheI exhilarating scene the rapidly succeed ing events the turbulence and flutter around her were calculated to dispel the most pronounced abstraction Beneath a protecting parasoltor the light shot below the roof at the bac and touched that part of the grand stand a faint glow warmed he cheeks while her eyes shone with thei gladness of the moment Many of thei dandles regarding her with markedl persistency asked who she was and none knew until finally Editor Rhym ster Straws was appealed to Straws Informed oti all matters was able to satisfy his questioners She Is an actress sold Straws Soi we are told We shall find out next week She is a beauty We can tell that now- Standing near the rhymester story writer and journalist was a tall young man dressed in creole fashion Ho rollowed the glances oC Straws

repeated the land bar on starting Oh Ive seen her act Without definite purpose the patroon who hnd listened with scant attention to the poet began to move slowly toward the actress and at that moment the eyes of the soldier turning to the saddling paddock whore the horses were being led out fell upon the figure drawing near recognizing In him the heir to the manor Edward Mauvillc Construing In his approach a deliberate intention a flush of quick anger overspread SaintPrwpera face and heII You arc blocking mv way monsieur glanced at the girl by his side But her manner assured him she had not observed the land baron for at that moment she was looking in the oppo site direction endeavoring to discover Barnes or the others of the company in the immense throng Murmuring some excuse to his uncon scious companion and cutting short the wiry old ladys reminiscences of the first public trotting race In 1818 the soldier left time box and moving with some difficulty through the crowd met Mnuvllle in the aisle near the stair way The tatters face expressed sur prise not altogether of an agreeable nature at the encounter but he Immediately regained his composure Ah M SaintProsper ho observed easily I little thought to see you hereNor I you said the other bluntly The patroon gazed in seeming carelessness from the soldier to the young girl Saint Prospers prtsenco in New Orleans could be accounted for Ho had followed her tram the Shadengo valley across tho continent Tho drive begun at the country inn ho looking down from tho dormer window to wit ness the start had been a long one very different from his own brief flight with its wretched end These thoughts coursed rapidly through the land barons brain her appearance rekindled the ashes of the past the fire in his breast flamed from his eyes but otherwise tie mane no already or teem ing He glanced out upon the many faces below them bowing to one wom an and smiling at another Oh I couldnt stand a winter in the north resumed the patroon turning althoughoncethe barn burners promised to make lit warm for me Offering no reply to this sally Saint Prospers gaze continued to rest coldly and expectantly upon the othe Goaded by that arbitrary regard a implied barrier between him and tin o young girl the land baron sought t press forward His glittering eyes mett the others The glances they ex changed were like the thrust and parry adm IItlress the actress and thereby risk a public rebuff It was nevertheless Im possible for the hot blooded southern er to submit to peremptory restraint trekr master He rend

torceii and suddenly the words of the marI quls recurring to him he surveyed the soldier disdainfully Gad you must come of a family of cowards and traitors But you shall fight orthe public becomes arbiter And he half raised his arm threateningly The soldiers tanned cheek was now as pale as a moment before it had beenI flushed His mouth set resolutely as though fighting back some weakness With lowering brows and darkening 4 glance he regarded the land baron- I J was thinking he said nt length with an effort that If I killed you people would want to know the rea sonII The patroon laughed How solicit ous you are for her welfare and mine Do you then measure skill only by Inches If so I confess you would stand a fair chance of dispatching me But your address The St Charles I presuumetI The soldier nodded curtly and hav- Ing accomplished his purpose Mauvllle had turned to leave when loud voices In a front box near the right aisle at tracted general attention from those occupying that part of the grand stand The young officer who had accompa nied Susan to the races was angrily confronting a thickset man the latest recruit to her corps of willing captives The lad land assumed the arduous taskJof guarding the object of his fancy from all comers simply because she t had been kind And why should she j not have been Ho was only a boy She was old enough to bewell an adviser When after a brief but point ed altercation he flung himself away with a last reproachful look In the dlfrection of his enslaver Susan looked hurt That was her reward for being nice to a child A fractious young cub said the thickset man complacently Well I like cubs better than bears retorted Susan pointedly Not long however could the interest of the spectators be diverted from the amusement of the day and soon all eyes were drawn once more to the track where the horses hoofs resound ed with exciting patter as they strug gled toward the wire urged by the stimulating voices of the Jockeys How did you enjoy It my deartasked Barnes suddenly reappearing at Constances box A grand heat that 1 though I did bet on the wrong horse But dont wait for us SaintProsper Mrs Adams and I will take our time

mournful cypress draped by tho hoary tillandsla and from the Bomber depths of foliage came the chirp of the tree crickets and the notet of tho swamp owl Faint music in measured rhythm a foil to

against the Louisville Gas Company in the suit brought some months ago by the latter corporation against the former The action of the Gas Company was for 250 000 damages alleged to havo been done the plaintiff by the sale of what was claimed to be mixed and manufactured gas for illuminating purposes This the Gas Company al leged was an infringment of Ira character which confers upon it the right to sell manufactured gas for Illumi nating purposes The petition of the Gas Company has passed through preliminary stages of pleadings in Judge Millers court and the Heating Companys answer and counterclaim will bring the questiun in controversy fairly to issue The Gas Company maimed in its peti tion that his Heating Company had sold mixed and manufactured ges since January 1 1895 and asked that an accounting be given for the loss of business alleged to have been sustained In answering these allegations the Heating Company merely makes formal denial of every charge Tuei days Times t

THOSE SPENT IN WASHINGTON MAY VARY IN EXPENSE DrldiiRToonm nn a Rule Are lie Kardlcai of the Price of Things OB N Bridal Toumllcnv 1 300 a Day Was Spent In a lintel Jn the Capital Why Is it that so many bridal plea come to Washington to spend couJJhoneymoons Perhaps the question not be satisfactorily answered but the fact remains that the capital Is a great Mecca for the newly wedded Some f people say that it is because Washing 1 ton is restful and that at this one pe k nod in their lives men and women dojj not taro for bustle They want to be able to devote some thought to each other without fear of personal acci dent Whatever the reason the fact remains that the annual Influx of brides i and grooms amounts to at least 20000 personsThe 1manager of one of the hotels of the city was asked In regard to the expenses of a honeymoon Is a honeymoon In Washington too expensive for a man with a moderate c salary the reporter asked or can it be reduced to an economical basis without It displaying the limitations of the ibridegrooms purse should he happen to d be of the less wealthy class + That question need not be a vexed Ahoneymooncostly as the purse can buy or it can bel tyouafforded by our modern hotels At this moment I have in mind a man from Chicago who brought his J bride here on their wedding trip Their j living expenses amounted to something like 300 a day that amount being spent in the hotel But then the manager added this man had an al most unquenchable thirst for rare old wines and things In season and out of season But there Is just one thing I wish to say in connection with the American bridegroom I cannot recall one Instance where the quality does rnot hold good be he a man of wealth or one of modest income He never c questions the price of things This even proves true concerning tho engagement of our apartments Ho i foutE f t I remember we had as guests at the same time with our 300 a day couple a newly wedded prtlr from New r England Their dally expenses Were U 10 Now using these figures which are entirely accurate one can quickly see that luxurious living it can be purchased for the latter amountIs not so frightfully expensive as our out of town friends picture Really the amount of money to be spent is more a matter of taste than the condition ofCjl ones purse At this juncture the manager reach end threw open the door of tho state bridal suit displaying a verita ble glimpse of fairyland This cham ber Is the most expensive room In the hotel Its size does not differ mater s ally from the less elegantly furnished 4 rooms but In
