THE FAMILY JEWELS.

LaPerme dea Augeswasnnt sitaated
on the main stream of the Meuse ; bat
on an inlet that was surrounded by gradv
ually rising ground, crowned by dense for*
eats, the only outlet being at the north
est where the waters of the inlet joined
those of the river. This'- protected^situa
tion contributed greatly to the fruitful
ness of the charming little mountain
sheltered nook; rows of carefully pruned
fruit trees flourished in the fields; a state
ly avenue of nut bearing trees led to the
mansion which surrounded by a large
garden, whose arrangement'displayed the
taste of the century past; prim yew
hedges and quaint geometrically formed
beds, interposed with dingy looking ar
bors. A broad flight of stone steps led
to the terrace upon which stood the
house—not such a one as the character of
the garden would lead one to expect—a
rococo castle, with stately wings and pro
jecting powers; but a simple unpretend
ing villa, a single story with a high man
sard roof, white washed, with green jalou
sies. Instead of wings, only a small con
servatory on one side and an aviary on
All this Daveland observed as, accom
panied by Hartig, he rode through the
chestnut avenue the next day to pay his
first visit to the Ferme des Auges. Max
had persuaded Hartig to accompany him,
giving as his reason for fulfilling bis
promise to Mobs. d’Avelon. sosoon, that
Void was the most tiresome place in the
world ; and secondly that it would be
Tery interesting to become familiar with
the "interior” of a French family ; and
lastly that because this Mods. d’Avelon’s
face possessed a singular attraction for
him—perhaps out of pare love of con
tradiction, because .Southerin bad op pos
ed him. Enough, our landwebr Lieuten
ant, accompanied by,-the scholar of the
company, arrived at the court of the
Ferme ; snd after delivering their horses
the servant were conducted to the terrace
in front of the villa.
Here they found two young ladies seat
ed at a round cast iron table; a gentleman
stood before them speaking earnestly, in
whom-Max recognized the driver of the
chariot, and in one of the ladies, the orig
nal of the portrait.
The other was a dark, rather faded
beauty ; she looked like a native of Albi
on; a delicate featured face surrounded
by curling locks; a rather stiff, repellant
manner and censuring glance that seemed
to find fault with the world in general,
was Daveland’s mental observation.
He approached the group with a certain
embarrassment as he perceived a' not
very friendly reception from the gentle

the head Daveland gave him their cards
and explained the object ot their visit.
The gentleman with cold politeness bade
them be seated,and left them to seek Mons.
d’Avelon, throwing the cards upon the
table as he turned to go.
“You live in a little paradise,” said
Max, after they had seated themselves at
the invitation of the ladies, “and Fve no
doubt you feej, yourselves very fortunate
in being protected from the ravages of
the war by these.hills.”
“We have certainly never had any of
the enemy here until to-day,” returned the
younger lady, then continuing with a
smile, “and the first who have ventured
here greet us with friendly eyes->not so,
Miss Ellen?” to that lady.
“You know as a Briton I 'am neut»al,
Valentine,” returned Miss Ellen quietly.
“Very kindly said,” said iWeland
bowing; "I do greet you with a friendly
eye because it is entirely well, and once
more capable of looking out tor fortune
or misfortune-—” -
“Ah, can one have an eye to misfor
tune ?” asked Valentine a little mocking
“Certainly ; the eye is the medium of
the sense over which we have the least
control. It often betrays what we would
noVhave revealed for the world,, and oft
en,-receives impressions we would not
have willingly accepted at any price—be-
cause they are impressions that make one
“The ear is not any better—it hears
many things that give us unhappiness—”
“Especially in modern times.” added
Miss Ellen stiffly.
“And there is feeling,” continued Val
entine. “We have discussed sight and
hearing, let us discuss the sense of feel
ing—surely there is no more neutral con
versation than that about the five senses.-
Germany is the land of sentiment, and
you gentleman can tell us much about
that which we know nothing—about this
German heart of cast steel,” she added
bitterly in a lower tone.
“If the German heart is encased in
such a coat of mail why challenge it ?
With people of such i feeling one had
better be at peace,” retorted Max.
“We have been deceived—we believed
all the maidens, over there, to be Gretch
ensand all the cent emen Wertbers.”
" “But never rt collected that Werther
understood how to use powder and lead,”
interposed Hartig dryly.
There was a certain comicality in the
murderous accent with which Hartig ut
tered th»se words, that called a amiim to
even Miss Ellen’s prim lips.
“True, we never thought of tlat,” said
Valentine; “nor that the other type of
the German, Faust, murdered Grelchen’s
brother, and never wient abroad without
the--devil at his side;”
“And since then you see Mephwtophe
lbs beside every German ?”
r, “01)i since then , they do not need;
inch a mentor] hislesson fell on too fruit*
fnl ground.” -
“And yet I wish I possessed the power
to summon him, like my namesake in the
‘Preischutz,* to assist me to parry your
‘‘Have you not your friend to assist
you ?” she asked glancing at Hartig with
a slightly contemptuous smile.
‘‘ln a battle with ladies one does not
choose to ask their friends for ass istance —
that, I believe, is the :rnle in the perpetual
warfare between the sexes.”
‘‘Are they in perpetual warfare ?”
“Yes-first because they never under
stand each other, aod then because the
fairer sex are conscious that they must
acknowledge themselves the weaker side,
sooner or later.”
“What a stfjctly German' idea!” she ex
claimed a little impatiently. “Then even
enpid wears a helmet in your land ?”
“Like the Grecian Eros—yes. And so
everywhere, Jsur planet has maintained
its assigned orbit between Venus—and
Mars ; this has been its destiny for ages
and will be for ages to come. Should
love at first be conducted like a carnival
jest, in wb ich each party prepares itself
with masks, to sport with bnqnets and
comfits, then the struggles will come la
ter, when marriage—”
“Then it will be all the more terrible,
owing to the marriage of the opposing
parties.” interrupted Hartig again.
At that moment Mons. d’Avelon as
cended the terrace steps, accompanied by
the gentleman who had gone in quest of
him. He was clad in a loose, gray coat
and pantaloons and white straw ha l ; and
as he came forward to greet bis visitors*
took the large pruning knife in his left
band to extend the right. After welcom
ing them cordially he tamed to Miss El
len and bade her see that dinner was pre
pared for their guests, then introducing
the young gentleman as Gaston de Ri
beaupierre, opened the conversation by
inquiring for the latest political news.
“We must settle that before we attend
to less important matters,” he added
pleasantly, “fop I hope the gentlemen
will give me the pleasure of showing
themanner in which we conduct the agri
culture here in the region of the Vosges—
you will find it very difficult, and much
belter than they do it in Germany— at
least I think so,” he added sharply. "Do
yon bring any news of more German
"Why do you say German victories ?”
asked de Ribeaupierre sharply.
“My dear Gaston, yon must admit that
the victories have been German nearly
every time,” be answered shrugging his

my opinions about it, nor will I dosobe
fore these gentlemen. The Germans will
conquer, and we must submit, notwith
standing all those fine speeches in bur
journals,’ yon see these fine talkers don’t
understand the situation. The French
achieved great things once; they once
had a real field genius—there never was
a greater—who overthrew the rotten and
worm-eaten world of their neighbors; and
then the dogma, that the French are the
first soldiers in the field, originated! But
I tell yon the French are n»i a nation of
warriors—they never were and never
will be. The history of France is bat a
history of great battles—lost. From
Poitiers and C:ecy to Pavia, to Ramillies
and Maiplaquet, to Minden and Rossbach,
to Vittoria and Waterloo, to Worth and
Sedan—what defeats! Leaving the first
Napoleon out of the question, does their
historial importance depend upon these
victories ?—certainly not! ’
“What a paradoxical assertion !” ex
claimed Gaston with a sarcastic smile.
“I only assert that the nation is not a
warlike one, and in this particular is qo
match for the Germans—”
“Permit me to offer my opinion,” inter
rupted Max. “You cannot deny that the
French are a chrivalous people,”
“And does not chivalrous mean brave?”
“Chrivalrous means knightly, Fraulein.
This gallantry, in other words, chivalry,
was most perfectly and exclusively prac
ticed in .France ; feudalism reigned no-
where so absolutely. And one of the
greatest blessings of this feudalism was
that it punished every commoner who pre-
sumed to carry arms—for this reason the
multitude became unwarlike.”
“Was this not the case in Germany ?”
asked Gaston, for the first time addressing
“Unfortunately not so much as I would
have wished. A remnant of fendal times
still remains in our odious, to me, custom
of shooting every franctireur we catch
Still it was not as bad with us as in Prance,
and our people firmly adhered to the
right of carrying arms to defend their
country ; should a war of the peasantry
break out our people would show that
they knew how to defend their homes—
even oar nobility could not be trained in
to tame courtesies by a Richelieu or Louis
the Fourteenth; in short—”
“We savages are a better people in eve
ry sense of the word,” interrupted Hartig
Gaston de Ribeanpierre shrugged his
shoulders, but Mona. d’Avelon nodded ap
provingly as be replied; . ,
“There is truth in all this; but'you

Mons. d’Avelon rose suddenly, and
hastened into the boose, and Valentine,
thinking her father had but gone to bring
something quietly continued the conver
sation, speaking in the tone of disdainfnl
superiority she had at first assumed.
Valentine. d’Avelon seemed to have
been differently reared from the shy,
French girls of the upper classes ; those
mute paragons of cloister-like pensions.
Her great, inquiring eyes were fearless
and unembarrassed as they met Dave
land’s glances; that gentleman found her
entrancing spite of her ev&ent hostility
to his nation.
la the meantime Miss Ellen, who was
returning from hererraad tothe kitchen,
had entered the salon leading to the ter
race. To her surprise she beheld Mons
d’Avelon seated in a low fantenil, his
head bent forward as his eyes stared fix
edly at the floor. With a quick step she
was beside him, and laying her hand famil
iarly on his shoulder, whispered softly :
“What is the matter, my friend? In
heaven's name tell me what ails you ?
You are as pale as death—are you ill?”
“No—no—!” he almost gasped, shaking
off her touch. “Leave me, Ellen—yes I
am unwell, but it will pass directly—in
deed—only send these Germans away—
invent some plausible excuse—only get
rid of them—immediately— not—no—come
back! I don't mean thatl”
Ellen stared at him in bewilderment.
“Go and ascertain from what part of
Germany they came—be careful, discreet;
then come and tell me—bat as you value
your life, don't let them suspect—will
