CHAPTER XXXVII. On the Lake.
Mrs. Sidebottom had reached Lucerne very
rumpled ana dirty and out of temper, having
traveled all night lrsm Brussels, and having
had to turn out and have her boxes examined
atThionvilleand Basle. She had scrambled
through a wretched breakfast off cold coffee

stored her wonderfully; and when she took her
place under the r ic; in the lake steamer,
tilth a ticket in ve for Fluelen, which
sue insisted on calling Flew-ellen, she was in a
contented mood, and inclined to patronize the
The day was lovely, the water blue, Pilatus
without his cap, and the distant Oberland
peaks seen above the Brunig Pass were silver
against a turquoise sky.
"This," said Mrs. Siaebottom, dipping into
"Murray's Handbook,"to ascertain what it was
proper to say.'this is distinguished above every
lake in Switzerland, and perhaps in Europe, by
the beauty ana sublime grandeur of its
Then past her diifted a party of English
tourists, also with ".Murray" in tbeir hands
and on their lips. "Oh, mammal" exclaimed a
young lady, "this lake is of very irregular
shape, assuming near its west extremity the
form of a cross. Da you sec? There is one
arm. we are approaching another, and there is
"My dear," said her mother, "don't say leg; it
is improper: say stem."
And, mamma, how true "Murray" is is it
not wonderful! He says that at this part the
shores of the lake are undulating hills clothed
with vendare, and dotted with houses and
Villas. He reall must have seen the place to
describe It so accurately."
"Good gracious!" exclaimed Mrs. Sidebot
tom; and then, after a pause, 'Gracious good
ness!" Lambert Pennycomequick took no notice of
his mother's exclamations, till a third "gra
cious goodness,"escaping her like the discharge
of a minute gun at sea, called his attention to
her. and he asked: "Well, what is it?" As he
received no answer, he said: "I don't believe in
that honey served up at breakfast. It is not
honey at all. but syrup in which stewed peas

"What is the matter, mother? Oh, ,yes,

It is a hoax about chamois. I have been told
that they knock goats on the head, and so the
flesh is black, or rather dark colored, -and it is

This is extraordinary!" exclaimed Mrs. Side
bottom. "Yes first rate," said Lambert. "Our York

But Mrs. Sidebottom was not lost in wonder
at the beauty of the landscape; she was watch
ing intently a gentleman in a light suit, of a
military cast, wearing a white hat and a pug
garee, with mustache and carefully curled
whiskers, who was marching the deck along
side of another gentleman, stout, ordinary
looking, and comfortable in appearance, like a
"Look at my watch!" said the gentleman in
the light suit, and as there were vacant places
beside Mrs. Sidebottom. the two gentlemen
left pacing the deck and Eeated themselves on
the bench near he r.
"Look at my watch! Turned black, positive

india-rubber stomach-belt. If you want evi

Mrs. Sidebottom saw a silver watch-case ex
tended to be exhibited, the dingy color that
silver acquires when exposed to gas.
"I wish, sir I beg your pardon, my lord you
will excuse me, bnt by accident by the merest
accident I caught sight of your address and
name on your luggage I wish, my lord, I were
going with you to Andermatt, and I would take

I was gangrened at Andermatt by the
deadly vapors there. I thank a merciful heaven,
w ith my strong constitution and by the warning
ifforded by my watch, I escaped death. I always

"I am sure of it I had my blood tested, I
had my breath analyzed. There were diatoms

'On no account, my lord. You are safe at

conferred on me a lasting favor. I shall not
forget it. I was bound for the Hotel du Grand
Prince. "What about the Imperial?"
"Nothing all salubrious, mountain air
charged with ozone, and not a particle of de
leterious matter in it."
"I shall certainly go there most certainly. I
had telegraphed to the Grand Prince; but never
mind, I had rather pay a. forfeit and put up at
"Would you mind, my lord, giving my card to
the proprietor? It will insure you receiving
every attention. I was there when ill, and am
pleased to recommend the attentive manager.
My name is Yeo Colonel Yeo Colonel Beaple
Yeo. East India Company Service, late of the
Bombay Heavy Dragoons. Heavies we were
called Heavies, my lord."
"Will you excuse me?" said the stout little
nobleman; "I must run and speak to my lady.
'Pon my word, this is most serious, I must tell
her all you have been so good as communicate
to me. What were the statistics relative to the
"Eight decimal one call it eight of diphthere
tic effluvium, traces of scarlet fever germs,
and of trichinus spiralis. You know, my lord,
how frightful, how deadly, are the ravages of
"Bless me!" exclaimed his lordship, "these
foreigners really they should not attempt to
draw English Englishmen and their families
to their health resorts without making proper
provision in a sanitary way. Of course, for
themselves it doesn't matter; they are foreign
ers, and impervious to such influences; or. if
not, and carried off by them well, they are for
eigners! But to English it is outrageous! I'll
talk to my lady."
"Lambert" said Mrs. Sidebottom in a low
tone to her son, "for goodness' sake don't for
get; we must go to the Hotel Imperial!"
Bnt low as she had spoken, her neighbor in
the light suit heard her, turned round and saw
her. Not the least abashed, he raised his hat,
and with a flush of pleasure exclaimed. "Ah!
how do you do my dear madam my dear, dear
madam? This is a treat a treat indeed; the
unexpected is always doubly grateful." He
looked round to see that his lordship was out
of hearing, and then said In a lower tone, "you
misconstrued me you misinterpreted me. 1
had guaranteed you 15 per cent, and 16 per cent
you should have had. If you have lost it, it is
through want of confidence in me in
me in Colonel Beaple Yeo, of the
Bombay Heavies. Had you trusted me
but ab! let bygones be bygones. Howver, an
explanation is due. I writhe undertbe imputa
tion of not being above board and straight
straight as an arrow. But what can you do
with a man like Mr. Philip Pennycomequick?
The landowners of Bridlington got wind of the
plan. They scented Iodinopolis. Their greed
was insatiable, they demanded Impossible
prices. There was nothing for it but for me to
beat a retreat, make a strategic move to the
rear, feign to abandon the whole thing, throw
it up and turn my attention elsewhere. Then,
when they were in a state of panic, my design
was to reappear and buy the land on my own
terms, not any more ou theirs. Why, my dear
madam, I would have saved the shareholders
thousands on thousands of pounds, and raised
the interest from perhaps a modest 7 to 25 per
cent, and a decimal or so more. But 1 was not
trusted, the money confided to me was with
drawn, and others will make fortunes instead
of us. I schemed, others will carry out my
scheme. Sievosnon vobis mellificatis apes,
and you know the rest, aratis bovis, and so
Then Beaple Yeo stood up and handed his
card to Mrs. Sidebottom, saying: "You will at
least do me this favor; give my card to the pro
prietor of the Hotel Imperial, and he will care
for you as for a princess of the royal blood."
Then he stalked away.
Mrs. Sidebottom turned dejectedly to her
son. "Lamb, I believe I was premature. After
all, tlnjre was management in that affair. Of
conrse his was the right way to bring those
landowners to their knees. Let us take a
Beaple Yeo had now attached himself to
another party of strangers tourists, whose ac
quaintance he had probably made at an hotel
in Lucerne; and he walked tbedeck with them.
When they were fore, then Mrs. Sidebottom
and her son wera in the rear, but when they
turned on their heels, then she turned also and
walked aft, and heard their conversation dur

the hospice? To what use can it be put? It
will be sold for a song, as not a traveler will
cross the mountain when he can pass under it
Forasong-literally for a 'song of sixpence.
Now, can you conceive of a place more calcu
lated by nature as a nursery of Mount St Ber
nard dogs and the necessary buildings given
away given for nothing, to save them from
crumbling into ruin. There is a demand, a
growing demand for Mount St Bernard dogs,
that only wants a little coaxing to become a
perfect furor. We will send one as a present
to Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales.
We will get in France an idea that the St Ber
nard dog is a badge of the republic, and that
all true Repnblicans are bound to have Mount
St Bernard dogs. "We will get some smart
writers in America to dash off some sparkling
articles in the illustrated magazines, and the
demand becomes furious. Say the population
of France Is 37,000,000; actually it is more.and of
these two-third say 25,000,000 are Republicans,
and of these, one-half are In a position to buy
Mount St Bernard dogs, and we fan the par
tisan fever to a height, by means of the press,
which is easily done by dropping a few pounds
into the hands of writers and proprietors. Say
that one-third only of those in aposition to buy
the dogs, actually ask for them that makes
five millions of Mount St Bernard dogs to be
supplied to France alone. Then consider En
gland, if it becomes the fashion there, and it
will become the fashion, if the Princess of
Wales accepts a dog from us, and walks about
with one. Every lady of distinction, and then,
in the next year, e ery servant girl, will want a
St Bernard dog. And further I have calcu
lated that we can feed a dog at less than 3
farthings a day; say the total cost is a guinea.
I have made inquiries and I find I shall be able
to buy up the broken meat at a very low figure
from the great hotels of Switzerland during the
season. This will be conveyed to the hospice and
there frozen. So it will keep and be doled outto
the dogs daily, as required. Let us say that the
interest on the outlay in purchasing the hospice
and in maintaining the staff of dog-keepers be
one guinea per dog; that makes the total outlay
two guineas on each pup, and a pup a year old
we shall not sell under 10. Now calculate the
profit for yourselves 8 a dog, and 4,000,000
suppled to France alone to enthusiasts for the
republic, and quite 2,000,000 to England to those
who imitate Her Royal Highness the Princess
of Wales, and 7,000.000 to the United States for
Americans who copy French or English fash
ions, and you have a total of 18.000,000 of dogs
at 8 each, a clear profit of 125,000,000. If we
put the matter in decimals "

Saturday, June 8, 18S9. j
The Conemaugh valley floods have been
felt all along the lines of trade here the past
A leading produce commission merchant
said: "Our great difficalty the past few days
has been to secure a sufficient amount of fruit
and vegetables to meet demands. From Fri
day of last week until Tuesday of this we
were unable to get any stuff from Maryland,
which is our main source of supply at this time
of the year. The washouts kept back our stuff,
and when it finally managed to get through
much of it was in bad shape." Onr markets
have been hungry all the week, owing to the
delay of trains. Large quantities of stuff on
the way were ordered back to Eastern markets.
There has been a scarcity of tomatoes, beans
and peas for some days. Florida supplies are
about at their end for this season! and wash
outs have delayed the shipments from more
northerly belts. Produce trade was veryquiet
to-day because there was little to sell. Home
grown strawberries were in short supply, and
those from Maryland and Delaware were In
bad shape when they made the landing. Old
potatoes which have survived are firm at an
advance, while new are tending downward.
There has been a scarcity of tropical fruits all
the week, but the blockade being now broken,
an excess is probable for the coming week.
Notwithstanding shortage there was no ad
vance in prices.
Eggs have advanced during tho week and
markets close firm td-day. Butter is practi
cally the same price as last Saturday. Good
grazing in this vicinity has had the effect of
depressing country butter. The stock of cheese
held by our home jobbers has been well cleaned
up this week by reason of strong demands from
the Conemaugh valley. A leading jobber of
cheese,butter and eggs said: "Our trade started
out lively at the beginning of the week and has
kept up well to the close. We sold a much
larger quantity ot goods than last week and
our stuff is not often as well cleaned np on Sat
urday as it is to-day." Another produce mer
chant said: "We have not been able to fill up
orders for a few days because of delays of
trains. Everything m our line ot good quality
has been in short supply all week. We have
had hungry markets, light supplies, and could
have sold much more stuff if we had had it."
A member of one of our leading pork pack
ing firms reports as follows: "The flood in the
Conemaugh valley has very materially affected
our trade. Many of our best customers are
between Blairsville and Altoona. From all that

property was swept away.' Notwithstanding
the fact that some 25 of our regular customers
are in the ill-fated district, onr trade for the
week has held up well. The Relief Committee
has sent in large orders, and while this has not
been enough to offset losses our trade for tbe

CHAPTER XXXVIH. In Hotel Imperial.
Salome had found her sister at the Imperial
Hotel at Andermatt Janet was one of those
persons whose bodily condition varies with
their spirits. When depressed she looked and
indeed felt ill; when happy she looked and felt
as if nothing were the matter with her. Janet
had been greatly tried by the double shocks of
her husband's death and the discovery of her
parentage. She had been taken into the secret
because it could not be kept from her.when the
man Schofleld, alias Beaple Y'eo, suddenly ar
rived at Mergatroyd, just after the flood aud
the disappearance of Jeremiah Pennycome
quick, at the time when she was sharing her
mother's room instead of Salome.
Mrs. Cusworth at that time was in great dis
tress of mindattbe loss of her master and
friend; and when her brother-in-law, the father
of the two girts whom she had brought up as
her own, unexpectedly appeared and asked for
money and clothing, she confided her difficulty
to Janet and between them they managed to
bribe him to depart and leave, them in peace.
Mrs. Cusworth had sacrificed a large slice out
of her savings to secure his departure, and
trusted thereby to get rid of him forever.
When Janet returned to France she found
everything in confusion; the factory at Elbceuf
was stopped, the men who had been employed
in it had, assumed arms against the Germans,
and were either shot, taken captives, or dis-
Eersed. Her sister-in-law was almost off her
ead with excitement and alarm for her chil
dren, three girls just out of school. Prussian
officers bad been quartered in her house, and
had carried off some of her valuables, and ran
sacked the cellar for the best wines.
Janet bad caught cold that night in the train
when it was delayed by the flood, on the way to
Mergatroyd, and it had settled on her chest,
and left a cough that she could not shake oft.
Anxioty and worry had told on her joyous dis
position and deprived it of its elasticity. She
gave way to discouragement Her husband's

TY0EK OF THE WEEK.
Business Scotched but Not Killed by the
' Tha business history of last week has al
ready been written. The Johnstown calam
ity knocked the life ont of it. Saturday it
snowed signs of recovery, bnt it will be some
time before it gets fairly on its feet again.
Stocks were dull and weak all through. The
total sales amounting to only 2,403 shares of
which Pittsburg Traction furnished nearly
one-half, followed by Philadelphia Gas with
550. Oil was in the same condition as stocks.
Realty was fairly active, a number of im
portant deals being made. The number of
deeds recorded was 208, representing J502,
1K)2. There was a fair movement in mort
gages, one being placed at 1 per cent, the
loiwest rate on record for home money. The
niMnber placed during the week was 186, of the
vaEueof $380,597. The largest were: S55,000,$15,000,
$14,B25, $10,375, $10,000, and nine from $5,000 to

Into innoduous desuetude.
The life 'insurance interest is reviving since
the Johnsjtown disaster. The uncertainty of
life, as exemplified in that awful calamity, has
caused many to think seriously and take steps
for the protection of their families. An agent
said yesterday: "I have done more business
the past jveek than during the rest of the
year. Heretofore I have been compelled to go
to people;' now they come to me. Whenever a
man gets (into a serious frame of mind, he at
once things about life insurance. I have filled
out five policies to-day for amounts ranging
from $5,000 to $10,000. The latter is our limit.
Young roirried men just starting in business,
and clerkip take the lead. By this fore-thought,
in case tttoy should suddenly be cut off, they
put their j families beyond tbe reach of want
It every npan would do this there would be far
less miserly in tbe world. There comes a cus
tomer now. Good day."
Business at the banks was very quiet Satur
day, scarcely anything being done except in
a routine way. Rates on loans showed no
change, and exchange and currency were even.
The weelk's clearings, as compared with those
of the same week last year, show a falling off
of $276,056 65. The depression caused by tho
flood easily accounts for this deficit The

in the Alps, 'where the air was pure and bra

matt, and her sister-in-law bad sent her three
school-girl daughters to be with her; to look
after ber, Madame Labarte had said; to be
looked after by her, Janet found was expected.
They were nice enough girls, with simple
minds, bnt it was a responsibility imposed on
Janet at a time when she required complete re
laxation from care.
At Andermatt the fresh air was rapidly re
storing Janet to her normal condition of cheer
fulness, and was giving her back the health she
lacked, when her father arrived, impecunious,
of course, and let her understand that be bad
come there to be supported by her, and to get
out of her what he could. It would have been
bad enough to have this dreadful man there
posing as her father had she been alone. It
was far worse with the three girls, ber nieces,
under her charge, and in her dismay she had a
relapse, and wrote off to Salome an agonizing
entreaty to come to ber aid.
Janet bad been left comfortably off, but till
her husband's affairs were settled it was not
possible for her to tell what her income would
really amount to. The factory was again work
ing, a competent overlooker had been fonnd,
and a suitable working partner taken Into the
firm to carry it on. In ail probability Madame
Baynes would be very well off, but at present
she had not much ready money at her disposal.
Mr. Schofleld, or Colonel Yeo, as he pleased
to call himself now, was a aifferent looking
man at this time to the wretched looking ob
ject who had presented himself at Mergatroyd,
asking for clothing and cash, rather more than
a year ago indeed. 18 months ago. He was
well dressed, trim, held himself erect and as
sumed a military air and some pomposityas
though the world were going well with him. He
had carried away a little, but only a very little,
of the plunder from Bridlington, and he knew
very well that what he had would not last him
long. It was satisfactory to have a well-to-do
daughter to fall back on, whose purse he could
dip his fingers into when thev itched. But
Beaple Yeo could not be idle. He had an act
ive mind and a ready invention, and he began
operations on his own account, partly as tout
on the lake steamers for the Hotel Imperial at
Andermatt, receiving a fee for every tourist he
sent it, and partly by his speculations in dogs
and missionaries. Janet would have run away
from Andermatt but for the three incumber
ances whom it would not have been easy
to move to a secret and precipitate
flight without explanations to them or their
mother explanations which would have been
awkward; moreover, she feared that it would
be unavailing, as her father could easily dis
cover the way she had gone and follow ber.
There were only three passes in additiou to the
road up from Amsteg by which she could leave,
and it would not be possible for her to depart
by any of these routes unknown to Colonel
Yeo. Her first alarm and uneasiness abated
when he took himself off to tout on the lake;
and she resolved on remaining where she was
till Salome came and gave her advice what
course to pursue.
Salome decided that it was the best policy to
remain where they were, and not attempt flight
She saw that her sister was suffering, and she
determined to remain with her, to protect and
comfort her, and await what the future had in
store for herself. She naturally felt a great
longing to be at borne with her baby, butat the
same time she recognized that the situation at
home was not tolerable, that some change must
take place before she could return to Merga
troyd. One day Colonel Yeo was in the salle-a-man-ger
at the Hotel Imperial preparing for table
d'hote, when a lady entered, well-dressed, dark
haired, with fine eyes, and swept up the room
towards ail alcove where were small tables, at
which either a party sat that desired to be
alone, or tourists not intending to dine at table
d'Jiote but a la carte. She walked slowly, with
a certain dignity, and attracted all eyes. Every
head was turned to observe her. and her eyes,
in return, passed over as mustering and appris
ing those who occupied their seats at the table.
She accepted the homage of interest she ex
cited, as though it were her own.
What was her age? She had arrived at that
period of life at which for some time a woman
stands still she was no girl, and no one could,
say that she was passe.

over the back of his chair, held his champagne

looked hard at the lady. She observed his
notice of her, and their eyes met Her eyes

me as much as you will, I expect to be admired,

"Waiter," said Beaple Yeo, calling the head
garcon, "if by chance that lady wants to
know who I am. inst say that 1 am Colonel Yeo
of the Bengal Heavies a claimant for the
Earldom of Schofleld."
At a table near that occupied by the lady sat
Salome, Janet and the three young girls La
barte. An arrangement had been come to
with Yeo that he was not to associate with
tbem, to hold aloof, and to receive money for
doing this. He bad got what be could, or
could for the time being, out of his daughter
Janet, and was therefore inclined to devote his
energies to new arrivals.
"Garcon," called the lady In gray and red.

"He has already asked," said the waiter,
with a knowing look.
In the alcove where a lady sat at a table by
herself was also a larger table, as already said,
occupied by Janet and her party, and the lauy
in gray and red attracted the attention of the
girls. These three girls were much alike; they
ranged in age from 16 to 19. had dark eyes and
fresh cheeks, looked a mixture of English and
French blood, and though they spoke English
with their aunt and Salome, they spoke it with
a foreign accent and when they talked to each
other naturally fell into French.
They were not beautiful, were undeveloped
girls without much character apparently. The
Btrange lady evidently exercised their minds,
and they looked a good deal at her, and passed
low remarks to each other concerning her.
Their cariosity was roused, and when she was
not at her place they searched the visitors'
book for her name, and for some information
"Ma Tante," pleaded the eldest, "which do
you think she is of all these on this page?"
"AJais Claudine, how can I tell?"
"Oh! Ma Tante do ask the waiter."
"But why, Claudine? She does not interest
"Ob, we are so puzzled about her; she looks
so aristocratic and dresses so well, and has so
many changes. She must employ a Parisian
milliner. Oh, we do wish we knew where she

"Garcon!" Janet Baynes called a waiter.
"Who is the lady who sits at this little table
"Madame a rich American, a millionaire of
The head3 of the young ladies went together
and as the lady entered all their eyes watched
her with eagerness. So beautiful, iso dis
tinguished looking, so wealthy.
"What is her name, waiter?"
"Mademoiselle Du Rbame."
"A French name?"
"Ah, madame, it stands there in the visitor's
book," and he-pointed to Artemisia Durham,
Chicago, U. S. A.
It was not possible for the American lady to
fail to observe the interest she excited in the
young girls. She saw their heads go together,
then fly apart when she appeared; at table she
caught tbeir dark eyes watching ber, and when
they saw that they were noticed, away flew
their eyes like scared birds. Miss Durham
condescended to look at the girls with a half
smile: she did not object to their admiration,
and she did not court it
What was more remarkable than the interest
awakened in those children was that which she
certainly aroused In Salome. There was a
something, a mystery, a fascination in the
woman that held Salome and drew her toward
the stranger. She felt that this woman was
her reverse in every particular, a woman with
experience and knowledge of the world, with a
power of making herself agreeable when she
chose, and to whomsoever she chose. Salome
had spent her life in a veiy narrow sphere, had

smiled in reply, and her smile said: "Indeed. I
cannot wonder at these girls admiring you. for.
yon are deserving of admiration."
Whether this conversation of glances would
afein8.,an7.!nrSlermay be doubted, had it
not been that the French-speaking waiter who
xawi,ie.Ii,dea on . the ladie3' disappeared.
W betber he was taken ill. or whether, caught
doing wrong, he had been dismissed, or whether
he had been enticed elsewhere by a higher
wage, nobody knew and nobody cared to ask.
Waiters are no more thought about by gnesta .
than are the mules and horses employed on ex
peditions. He was succeeded by a German, or
German-Swiss who conld not speak French,
and only an unintelligible English; and the
demoiselles Labarte and Madame Baynes on
principle would not have asked for a bit of
bread in German had they known how to do so.
Salome knew little or no German, and the
ladies were in difficulties. Claudine was out ot
sorts somewhat feverish, bnt nothing serious'
and her aunt advised that Bhe should drink
orgeat instead of wine. The waiter was puz
zled. "Acn! eine DrehoreeL Freilich. freilich,
bestelle gleich," and he rushed off to find an
organ grinder with a marmot
Then Miss Durham good-naturedly inter
fered, allayed the wrath of the ladies at the in
herent Teutonic stupidity which never can do
right, and ordered what was really required.
The orgeat broke the ice, conversation be
gan.and next day the American lady was seated
at the same table as the Labartes, with Salome
and Janet It would be impossible for the lat
ter to get on with the stupid, stubborn German,
waiter, unassisted by someone who was able to
speak and understand the language of bar
barians. At first there was but the exchange
of ordinary courtesies, bnt now that the threa
girls were able to speak to the stranger, they
hardly contained their attentions within ordi
nary bounds; they rivaled each other who
should gain pre-eminent favor with the lady
who wore such charming toilettes.
The girls were triumphant; they had formed
the acquaintance; that was the one advantage
that grew ont of a German waiter; Salome was
pleased she could now learn of this brilliant ac
complished woman; and Janet was satistiea be
cause she was feeling dull herself, and wanted
a lively companion to relieve the tedium.
Miss Durham had plenty to say for herself.
She was clever, amusing, interesting. She had
seen much of the world knew most watering
5 laces, baths and health, resorts in Europe,
'be meals, which had passed somewhatheavily
before, now became gatherings full of liveli
ness. Janet brisked up, felt better in health
and looked quite well, proposed excursions
and schemed picnics. The whole party now
found so much to talk about that they were re
luctant to leave the table. Suddenly a pallor
and tremor came over Mrs. Baynes. Snelooked
up. Beaple Yeo wa3 standing, white hat in
band, with the puggary trailing on the floor,
near the table.
"I take the liberty," he said; "introduce me."
Janet looked at Salome, and Salome at Janet
"I see," said Yeo; "mv relatives are in doubt
how to introduce me while my claim is being
presented in the Upper House. Call me Col
onel Yeo, of the Bengal Heavy Dragoons.
Hang my title! I shall find the coronet heavy
enough when it is fitted to my brow: the eight
pearls eight pearls; and as many strawberry
leaves strawberry leaves. I will not assume
my title till it is adjudged to me by the House
of Lords. You know your history of England.
The attainder was for rebellion, and I now re
assert my claim to the Earldom of Schofleld."
"And I," said the American lady, "am Arte
misia Durham, of Chicago."
