Little Mariette li:nl loiiff yellow hair.
It was no long that it fell almost t
her knees whenever t-lio pulled her
comb from it ami tossed her head, like
a bird shaking it- plmiic-. It w as as
yellow as ripened grain and showed
golden lights that made one imagine
that it had caught and imprisoned the
light of the morning sun whose rays
had indiscreetly lingered to kiss In r
white shoulder.- as she braided In r
hair before the window. Ah, the
lieiutifiil tresses of Mariette! Many
youthful gallants dreamed of them.
Among these was .lean, a young man
f twenty, and una line day dean and
Marieltu were married.
.lean was a clever, merry youth, who
'oukeil upon life as if it were a good
farce. He was gilted by nature with
a talent for drawing. It was by this
talent he expected to make his way in
the wa r! I.
Well, Muriel te and dean were mar
ried. Why? llei i'.uso they loved each
other, nf course. .lean, who treated
Marietle as a eniurade, carried his
heart in his hand, due evening, when
they had clasped hands for a longer
time than u-iial, Marhtte found his
heart in her little palm. The giddy
heaih'd .lean had forgotten it. To
punish him, Mariette kept it. That is
the whole story.

and Mariette, how . vcr. recovered

tresses and k'ses.
Two days afterward Jean was sur

provinces had sent it t i him as a wed

"You know," she said to Jean in the
vening, "it is eight days since you
..ave had work."
"I know that very well," he replied.
"Hut why that serious air? Have we
no more money '"
"Yes, yes," she answered, "only a
man ought not to he doing nothing."
"You are right. I will look fur
work, lmt it is not easy to find."
Kight days later Mariette hecanio
very nnxioii. She could no longer
conceal from herself the fact that star
vation was at hand. She said nothing
to dean, knowing that he was doing
his best to find work. She tried to
imagine what would he the end of this
terrible misery. She began to prac
tice the most extreme economy.
At the end of a week Mariette had
become a most prudent as well as a
most clever manager.
One morning, as .lean was about to
depart, Mariette was seized with a lit
of weeping. One hundred sous only
one hundred sous were left only
enough to last two (lavs -and then!
Pi'ciiledly everything looked black'
She made her toilet, however, but not
without sighing. As she was putting
up her hair before the glass she found
tli ll she had no hairpins left.
"Another expense!" she groaned.
When she went into the street she
entered the shop of the hairdresser al
the corner to buy a package of hairpins
for two sous. The hairdresser was
busy in a corner of his shop braiding a
plait of blonde hair which was fastened
by a nail to a wooden head.
'You have no need of tha'," hesaid,
glancing toward Mariette's hair.
"No; fortunately not," replied Mari
ette, "for thai must, !. dear.
"Oh, it costs twenty-live francs."
"Yes, for the labor of arranging il,
you know, brings a good price."
"To he sure! hut the hair alone,
that is worth something';"
"Indeed it is! This now is worth fif
"Fifteen francs: How much would
mine be worth on my head?"
"Let Ilie see il."
Marietle drew out her comb, and, as
tilie shook her head, her luxuriant, hair
fell about her.
"Ah," exclaimed the hair dre-ser, "a
beautiful lle.nl of hair."
Then, suddenly red raining his en
thusiasm as l.c scented business, he
"Thai is worth -well, a hundred

"Not to-day," replied Mariette, as
she put up her hair, "but one of the-e

"I!ut we ciiuld arrange not to cut il

"He wishes to give me a hundred

"What an absurd idea "
"Oh, I don't know! When mir money

.lean suddenly work"d himself into
an angry ssiou, saying that if ever

Well, anyway, only a woman could

other evening; "ipiite a curiosity."
"1 don't see w hat makes it a curiosi
ty, " answered Mrs. Jones, shortly.
Did you ever seo one?" asked
No; but I've seen a man eating
pumpkin pie, and a whole crowd look
ing at him."
Then Jones laid down his paper ami
explained that a man-eating shark
was a large fish on exhibition at one
of the markets.
So you said,"answered Mrs. June
calmly, and if the man prefers shark
to other lish, I don't see as its any

Then Jones tore out a handful ol
his hair, but remained silent. - ''
