University of Illinois Boys' Write

tfused to fight against Napoleon and
was promptly disowned and disinher-
ited by his father. There came a
summons for him to appear before
the general of the army, and thinking
that a trumped-up charge had been
made against him, Herman fled.
The Ancient Trysting Place
On the estate of Grabrielle's father,
high up on a hill, and commanding a
view of the city, there stood a wind-
mill. It was here that Gabrielle and
Herman met night after night, elud-
ing the vigilance of their parents to
find sympathy in a mutual friend who
listened to their secrets, laughed with
them, grieved with them, and signified
his consent to their plans by a
solemn, underitanding creak of his
wheel. It was to this trysting place
that Herman fled to escape the sol-,
diers who came for him, hiding in a
small dark hole beneath the floor. He
was not discovered, and that night
Gabrielle came for the last time to
talk over with him their 'plans for
the future. He was to go away, across
the sea to America and some day come
back for her. As they talked they
strolled through the fields. It was
that time in the evening when every-
thing seems to spell romance. The
moon was half hidden by a cloud. A
sweet-scented summer's breeze came
and went us little waves in the long
grass about them, and far in the dis-
tance the whip-poor-will was singing
his fircwell song. They came back
to the wind-mill, rising with its dark
niass like a sentinel on top of the hill,
and ascended to the narrow balcony
which encircled it near the top.
Leaning against the rail they talk-
ed, building for themselves castles
which were to become more than air,
and dreaming dreams which were ti
be realized when once he reached the
new world. Clouds came up and cov-
ered the sky. It was late summer,
and of the stars Vega alone was vis-
able. He pointed it out to her and
called it a star of fortune-promised
her that while he was away that star
would watch over her, and that some
day it would bring happiness to both
of them, And then he left.
That was the last night they ever
saw each other, Herman came to
America without money, without
friends, and struggled along for 10
years, becoming by the end of that
time rather well known as a builder
of houses. In the year 1835 he re-
ceived news of Gabrielle's death. Five
years later he appeared in Ann Arbor
and formed a fast friendship with the
owner of a large estate on the edge
of town. Two years later this owner
