this year of primary importance in view of the momeu toub issues which have arisen demanding in one instance the ultimate determination by arms and involving far reaching consequences ivhich will require the earnest attention of the congress In my last annual message very full consid- Â¬ eration was given to the question of the duty of the government of the United States toward Spain and the Cuban insurrection as being by far the most important problem with which vc were then called upon to deal The con- Â¬ siderations ad vanccd and the exposition of the views therein expressed disclosed

relief was afforded the vast numly-r- of unhappy rcconcentrados despite tue reiter- Â¬ ated professions made in that regard and the amount appropropriated by Spain to that end The proffered expedient of zones of cultiva- Â¬ tion proved illusory indeed no less practical nor more delusive promises of succor could well have been tendered to the exhausted and destitute people stripped of all that made life and home dear and herded in a strange region among unsympathetic strangers hardly less necesitous than themselves By the endof Dacember the mortality among them had frightfully increased

Â¬ noon A long gallery in the convent of Ste Genevieve had been turned into a ward and here the wounded lay on pal- Â¬ lets with a walking space between Ow Â¬ ing to madames kindness I was com- Â¬ fortably quartered at the end of the gal Â¬ lery and a screen had been set between me and the other patients I was gain Â¬ ing strength daily and at the moment I speak of was in a state between sleep- Â¬ ing and waking when I hetird a laugh and the sound of footsteps and saw through the partly open wing of the screen that my lady had come to make her daily rounds not attended as usual only by her women but by a gayly dressed cavalier as well and ii was his laugh that I had heard In thin person dressed in the extreme of fashion I made out M dAyen the same who had so kindly suggested that I should be left to die on the field He battered along holding a kerchief edged with gold lace to his nose and ever and again waving it in the air whilst he spoke in a loud tone regardless of the looks cast at him by the sisters in at- Â¬ tendance on the wounded They came slowly toward me for madame stayed constant to speak to some maimed wretch and I saw her slip money into the hand of some and there were kind words for all I felt a strange pleasure in watching her whilst at the same time I thought of my past and how un Â¬ fit I was even to nurse such a dream as my love for her When within a yard or so of the screen madame bent over a sufferer and dAyen exclaimed in his I said weakly who is madame where is Bidache Madame is Claude de Bochemars widow of Antoine de la Tremouille and heiress of Bidache Pelouse and a quar- Â¬ ter of the Cevennes Bidache Where you go is her chateau in Normandy Madame he went on with a ghost of a smile on his thin lips is kindness her- Â¬ self Now no more talk for to day Then he went and I lay back as sore in mind as in body In a day or so madames steward of Bidache arrived bearing a letter from her in which she placed her Norman chateau at my disposal until I was wdll again They moved me here by easy stages carrying me in a litter as I was too weak to ride and when I came to Bidache and was borne to my apart- Â¬ ments imagine my joy and surprise at seeing there my knave Jacques whom I thought to be either dead or home again at Auriac and not only Jacques but hanging on the wall my own sword and the sight of it was like meeting a tried friend Later on Jacques in- Â¬ formed me that after the rout he had made the best of his way back to the old rock and stayed there hoping for news of me At last it came with orders for him to hurr3r to Bidache and he did so bearing- with him such things as he thought T needed as well as a hundred pistoles of rents As for the sword it had been given to him on his arrival by madames orders to keep for me I had come to a low ebb by this and the money was trebly welcome as it would furnish me with a couple of horses and leave a round sum besides when I left Bidache which I meant to do as soon as ever I was fit to travel And now the time had come for me to depart and I was to start that evening For 40 crowns Jacques had picked up a couple of stout cobs at Evreux and we meant to leave an hour or so before sundown and make for Paris where if the king would accept an old leaguers sword he would stay if not the world was wide I was as far as ever from un Â¬ derstanding the strange message that M dAyen had delivered to me and felt myself safe in going to Paris as a gen Â¬ eral amnesty covered all our sins of re bpTlion so they Avere called now So absorbed was I in these thoughts that I did not mark the rapid approach of a horseman nor indeed was I aware of his presence until when within a few yards from me he reined in his plung- mg beast whose bit and neck were me -- Italian war x ranee

like a thief in the night and unconsciously to myself madame had climbed on a pinnacle in my heart and the thought that- I had deceived myself in my estimate of her moved me to sudden auger and stalled the cry for help that was rising to my lips I would have no help from her and her frieaids In the meantime the king was busily engaged in writing his dispatch on a small tablet which he rested on the pommel of his saddle As he was thus engaged a little shriv Â¬ eled old man pushed his horse beside Mine de Beaufort and said in mincing tones as hard as steel Come madame your brother has met a

together grimly as they made ready to start swearing I would rather die than make the slightest signal for aid They rode past quite close to me Madame de Beaufort weeping at the kings bridle hand and his majesty sucking at a nec- Â¬ tarine he had pulled from his holster Madame was immediately behind and as she came up to me our eyes met with instant recognition In a moment her cheek had crimsoned and paled and she reined in with a cry Stop halt They had all surrounded me now and I heard quick orders given lie is past mending said dAyen bending over me from his saddle a gentleman too it seems

drank greedily two cool hands held up my head Then we is men-at-arms Morbleu Madame But you are the Princess of Charity Let us hasten to your interesting patient however His majesty is most anxious to hear of him His majesty has never done me the honor to inquire she answered coldly You could hardly expect that madame But it came about in this We were at cards and as usual waj I held a bad cassade

through You My compliments M dAuriac arc a luckv man The king takes so great an interest in you that he has charged me with a message to you His majestj bids me say and his eyes twinkled down on me bead like from his painted cheeks and then turned slyly towards madame I was about to make some answer when he continued talking as if his words were meant for madame as well His majesty trusts you will soon be recovered and relieve Mme de la Bi Â¬ dache from the strain of watching you and begs me to add that he is of a tem- Â¬ per that can brook no rival in war or love Let me saj- - on my own account that it would be well if M le Chevalier would take a change of air I looked from one to another in blank amaze At the little ape with his cruel eyes and at madame wrho was still as a stone

change of air and monsieur your presence oppresses me I beg you will not trouble to escort me farther Then she turned from us and passed down the ward but dAyen remained I will kill you for this I gasped He looked at me with a shrug of his lean shoulders Perhaps I am old But you would do well to take my adivce monsieur and with a bow he too turned and went I was left lost in wonder utterly in the dark as to what this all meant but determined to find out and bringdAyen to book at the first chance I made up my mind to ask the next day The next day came but madame did not and then another and yet another day of At last some one dreariness passed told me she had gone with the court to Xantes and that I would see her no more Later on when Marescot came to me I begged the favor of his getting
