The concert given by the choir of the
Presbyter in church on the evening ofthe
25th ult., .it the Presbyterian church, Union, was a decided success. The seating
capacity is sufficient for a larger audience
but the loser-) are they who failed to attend.
Thc chair was occupied by Mr. Russell
who proved himself a model chairman.
The program, as advertised, was carried nut with but slight variations.
The rendering of the various glees by
thc choir spoke well for tbe talent, appreciation and training of that body, under
the able leadership of Mr. Howell.
Tbe quartettes by male voices were
well rendered and highly appreciated.
The "Bachelor" song was rather suggestive of real life to many of  the audience.
In thc elocutionary line, Misses Tarbell and Webster excelled themselves.
These rising elocutionists recite in well
modulated voices, throwing perfect expression anrl feeling into their selections.
The rendering ofthe duels���"Albion's
Boast" and "The Minute (uiu at Sea,"
by Messrs AINop and Kvans were an entertainment in themselves.
Miss Bertram'5 " Little Boy in Blue
created quite a storm as did her ins tro*
mental selection which weie greatly enjoyed by her appl.Hiding friends.
Solos. Thc "The Shoe upon the
Shore" by Mr Howell, and "Our Kail
Yard'1 by Mr. Kesley, were cmhusiastic *
ally received, while Kev. Mr. Logan
fairly captivated thc audience with "The
Laird O'corkpen."
The crowning event of the evening
was the admirable nnd dramatic rendering ofthe Duel: "HameCam'nor Gttid

Home, under the empire, there was a
Bingular institution or women where
a tribunal of womun was established
to decide questions regarding luxury
and etiquette. The Kmperor iluuuga- I
baliLs consulted the assembly ire-1
quently. They decided queatlons oi
precedence, thu number and state of |
females at court, upon tiu; style of
carriage the Emperor Bhould ride in,
whether sedan chairs should be ornamented with silver or ivory, and contested the rights oi man with au intelligence worthy ol the present time.

There occurred ��u the reign ui Henry
V*m, a curious cade ol a woman who
acted as a Judge. She was a Lady
Ann..- Berkeley, of Uloucestershlroi
who appealed to the King tu punish
a party of rioters who had entered
bur park, killed her dear and burned
her hayricks. His Majesty granted
bur a speuiul conunLjsloh to try the
offenders, and, being armed with this
authority, she appeared iu court,
heard thu charge, aud ou a verdict
oi guilty, pronounced the sentence.

the following account oi a small
State oi Java, between the towu oi
fcjamarang and i-aUivia, known as tho
kingdom oi Bantam, lu regard tu Its
form oi government, and the manners and customs ui its inhabitants,
it iur exceeds tlie wildest dreams oi
feminine miud-j. From timo immemorial, Lantam, though tributary to
Hollandj haa been governed by women. The sovereign id a man ; but that
ia a small matter, as hu himself is
(subject to a council pf three women.
High dignitaries, officers- Boldiers, and
all tho court attendants are, without exception, women whu sue that
the men aru emoloyed in agriculture

is composed oi a turps ui soldiers, whu
ride astride their horses like men,
aud handle a short, sharp luneu with
dexterity. They carry a rifle, too,
witb case, aud aim and fire with accuracy at full gallop. Tho uldust son
oi tho King succeeds to the crown ;
but, if tho King dies without male
heirs, a hundred womun, specially appointed, meet and select uno ui thoir
own sons by vote, and proclaim him
the legitimate sovereign.
In several villages oi Finland the

From Rheumatism-Mrs. F. Brawle/

matte Care A Quebec Lady Tell*, of
Relief in Six Hours by tiie Use o.
South American Kidney Cure.
In a practical, everyday 6ense it
might be said that this hi still the
age ol miracles. At least iu mauy
Cases whero peoplo havu looked upon
death as Imminent tho disease has
been removed aud they have been
made whole.
Kecorda like the following lead to
this belief: Johu Lee, uf Pembroke,
Out., says: " I was run dowu in flesh,
bad la*>t appetite, suffered intensely
from in digest lun, and feared fatal results would follow. The skill ui several physicians and thu use of mauy
patent medicines resulted in no beneficial results. I was induced to try
a bottle of South American Nervine
Tonic, and continuing its use I am
a nuw man to-day."
Tor twelve years continuously Mrs.
F. Urawley, of Tottenham, Out., suffered from rheumatism. Au remedies
did any gooil until she used South
American Rheumatic Cure. She says;
" Thu first few doses entirely freed me
from pain." She had spent almost a
fortune iu doctoring, when fivo bottles of tins  remedy cured  her.
South American Kidney Curo is
unique in its methods, it is nut like
pills ami powders, a remedy that only
gives temporary relief. As a liquid It
dissolves the hard stone-like particles
gathered in the system that constitute kidney disease. Not tho leant
tlmt can be snid of It is the quiok-
nosa with whleh it cures. Mra. A.
E. Young, ol Barnston* Quebec, snys:
" I found relief In the use of this medicine within six hours nfter tho first
dose had been tnken."
Stings of Insects.
During the hot days in tho summer months people living ia the country oiteu sudor a martyrdom through
the stings oi insects. They should at
once put on im application to draw
out the inflammation. Flour, for instance, is very good, aud soon allays
tho paiu and reduces redness ant'
(swelling. Another remedy Is to cover
the skin with a little soap and water,
letting the latter dry on the skin. A
small quantity of menthol mixed with
alcohol is excellent as a lotion for the
st.ngs of wasps, gnats, and nettles.
Many people use little sticks of butter of cocoa, a vury soothing cosmetic. The leaves o7 tho scented verbena
plant are said to keep off unpleasant
Insects, and washing with vinegar and
water or eyrlnga-flower water preserves the skin against their onslaughts. Honey and water, too,
allays the irritation produced by
them. Pse a teaspoonful of honey in
a quart of boiling water, applying it
to the spot while the liquid Ls tepid.

Aa the hig lake steamer slowly made
Its way to thu dock in Sarnia we Could
feel the vein of sadness widen In our
anatomy, and uur heart proceeded to
climb the air shaft. Years had slid
over the dump of oblivion since we had
camped around there witb .iim Lough-
ead, and other clerical gentlemen. We
knew tor a dead certainty that many
of the boya who once went to Sunday
school with us had crossed the summit
by the cemeBbry trail into a territory
frum which no prospector baa ever returned. We also knew that most ol
the girls we once luved, aud ate lee
cream with, had become addicted to
matrimony or#fallen victims to the
bicycle fever. For these and sundry
reasons we felt sad and lonesome. We
were like the famous prodigal in Biblical history in some respects but not
in others, lie, after the corn husk diet
gave him gastrunoudcal trouble, came
home on his pedal extremities, pant-
less, bruke, and, nu doubt, lousy. His
iu.ks filled bim up on iat veal, breaded,
probably, lio belonged to the ancient
urder oi prods. Must uf the prods, uuw-
ftdays, gu east on the blind baggage
only tu find that their folks ' have
shipped the calves tu Europe, ami
moved west to the Slocan couutry. We
did not gu hume tu eat veal, aa we
knew uur folks did uot raise cattle,
and. besides, we havu plenty uf chicken
iu New Denver, and wouldn't eat calf
ur cow under auy consideration.
To tell thu truth we crossed the continent to see our mother. We knew
she wanted to sue us. We thought to
surprise her, aud approached the
house in a quiet und subdued manner. Years ago we had often approached the house in the same way,
but for a dillerent reason. Looking
through the window wesaw our ma.
Shu was sitting iu tlie new rockiug
chair doing dead work on a basket of
cherries. As we watched her wo noticed a pensive smile light up lier
countenance, as though she was
thinking oi lier wandering boy, who
many moons ago had left tho parental root to prospect for a grulwtako
iu the wild aud silvery west. Opening the door we walked in. Our
mother immediately recognized tie in
spite of the fact that we had our
face dressed In the latest stylo of
whiskers. The march of time has
dimmed her eyes and tinged her hair
with silver, but she knew us on sight,
ami as she gathered us into her arms
we felt like a man who had bought
Le Hoi stock at three cents, and
still had It. It was worth travelling
0,000 miles to spend a few hours with
her "whose love shines supreme above
all the emotions that torment the
human stiul.

Tk Story of a Well-Known Delhi
Tortured With Rheumatism for Nearly
Twenty Years���Spent Large Sums in
a Vain Search for Renewed Health-
How He at Last P'ound it.
(From the Delhi Reporter.)
There are very few. troubles more
widespread and none more difficult
to eradicate from tho system than
rhoiuaatism. The sufferer is racked
with pains that seem unbearable,
and frequently [eels that eveu death
Itself would be a relief. Among those
who have found much of tlielr lives
mado miserable by this dread trouble is Mr. Michael bchott, of Delhi,
aad having fouud a means of release from its agonies he is anxious
that  other sufferers bhould  profit by
his experience. Mr. sehutt is in
tho employ^ of Messrs, tiuunce liros.,
mlders, uud has a reputation fur
sterling integrity��� among all who
know him. When one of tho staff
of the reporter Interviewed bim,
Mr. bchott gave lhe Tacts ol his
iilaoss aud recovery as follows: Uo
had beeu a special sufferer from
rheumatism since about eighteen
years of age. At times he was confined to bed bui obtained uo rest
day nur night from the excruciating pains ho was undergoing* Again
he was able to go about and follow
his employment, but even then frequently walked about in au almost
doubled up condition. Then again
he would have another relapse, and
would be forced tu take to bis bed.
During all these years he was almost continually doctoring, but never
Obtained anything more than temporary relief for the large sums he
expended la this way. Having failed
to obtain relief at homo he went to
Simcoe for treatment but received no
permanent benefit aud soon after
coming home was as bad as ever.
It will bo readily understood that
he was seriously discouraged, and
had como to look upon his euse as
hopeless. Finally lie was urged to
try Dr. Williams' i'ink Tills, and after
hesitating at spending any moro
money, in what he now considered a
vain pursuit of health, he at hist
consented to give them a trial. By
the time he had used a half dozen
boxes there was no longer any doubt
iu his mind tbat he was steadily Improving, and the treatment was
then gladly continued. Wben he
had taken a dozen boxes he found
himself entirely recovered, entirely
free from pain and from all stiffness
of Joints, and lie is now able to do
as bard a day's work as any man
In tho village. Uo has now been
free from his old enemy for so long
a period that ho feels his curo Is
permanent, and is consequently au
enthusiastic admirer of Dr. "Williams' wonderful I'iuk I'ills, and
urges all who are similarly suffering
to givo tbem a trial, feeling confident
that they will provo quite as efficacious as they did in his case.
Dr. Williams' I'ink I'ills strike at
the root of the disease, driving it
from the system ami restoring the
patient to health and strength. In
cases of paralysis, spinal troubles,
locomotor ataxia, sciatica, rheumatism, erysipelas, scrofulous troubles,
etc., tliese pills are superior to all
other treatment. Tliey are also a
specific for the troubles which make
tho lives of so many women a bur-
don, and speedily restore tho rich
glow of health to pale and sallow
cheeks. Men broken down by overwork, worry or excesses, will find In
Fink Pills a certain cure. Sold by
all dealers or sent by mall postpaid,

household ohooses to designate���
though only to Intimates���us the
"old woman" whom the Appellate
Division of Hie .Supreme Court has
crowned with* tho glory of a defensive decision. The " old woman" the
" lady of the house." as a more refined
recognition would entitle her. hns nt

Pew Women Breathe Normally or Take

As n mutter or fact, not ono woman

Never Used a Hair Brush.
A charming Englishwoman, whose
hair nlways looked like burnished gold,
announced one day thnt she uever
used a brush on it. However, she had
a substitute. With a large silk handkerchief, such as good housekeepers
covet for brightening their silver, ehe
stroked It firmly and briskly 100 times

method possessed all the goo,I qunli-
ttles of a brushing, without ever running the danger of breaking a line hair
or tiring tho head.
The Cheerful Woman.
Try to think less of yourself and
moro ol others. If there is an opportunity ot heing kind, especially at
home, don't let it puss by. Do whatever you nre usked cheerfully. Don't
frown and pout if some task fulls to
your share that you don't quite like.
Every time a face Is paekerod up in
discontent nnd anger it deepens Borne

Try to bo gracious to your friends

try to concentrate your attention on

this manoeuvre till poor Biddy's
patience was quite i xhausted.
At last sho bristled up her feathers
and chased him tlear across tho
garden iuto tho meadow. When sho

The Vast Structure is Mainly Due to
Pope Nicholas V.
Thc present existence oi this palace
is principally duo to Nicholas V.,
tho builuer Pope, whose gigantic
scheme would startle a niodern architect, His plan was to build the
Churoh ol St. Peter's us a starting-
point, and then to construct one vast
central "habitat" ior the papal administration, covering tho whole uf
what is called tho Borgo, from tho
castle of Sunt' Angelo to the
cathedral. In ancient times a portico or covered wuy supported on
columns, led from the bridge to the
church, und it was probably from
this real structure that Nicholas liegan hla imaginary on:?, ouly a small
part of whicli was ever completed.
That small portion aloue comprises
tin* basilica and tlio Vatican Palace,
which together form by far tho
greatest continuous mass of buildings in the world. The Colosseum is
196 yards long by 1B0 broad, Including tiie thickness of tho walls.
St. Peter's Church alone is L'u.> yards
long and 166 broad, so tliat the
whole Colosseum would easily stand
upon the ground plan of tho church,
while tho Vatican Palace Is more
than hall as large again,
Nicholas V. died in 1-155, and tlie
oldest parts of tho present Vatican
Palace aro not older than Ills reign.
They nro generally known as the
Torre Borgia, from having been In*
hnbltcd by Alexander VT... who died
of poison in thc third of the rooms
now occupied by tho library, counting from the library side. The windows of these rooms look upnn the
largo square court of tho Belvedere,
and that part of tho palace is not
visible from without.
Portions of the substructure of thfl
earlier building wero no doubt utilized by Nicholas, nnd tho secret
gallery wliich connects the Vatican
witli tlie mausoleum of Hadrian is
generally attributed to Pope .lohn
XXHL. who died in 1*117; but on
the whole it may be said that thn
Vatican Palace is originally a building ol the period of tho Renaissance.
to whicli nil successive Popes have
made nilditifins.

City and Vancouver.     It  would seem
lhat there is   likely   to   be   sufficient
competition to secure reasonable trans*

"When yon want anything* go atraight
to the fountain head. Don't ever make
a reomw uu a matter of importance to
au underling."
'f hone w orila were addressed to me
several years ago by a city editor
who kuew ids business. I have inter
viewed a goodly number of men since
and have eome to the conclusion that
liis advice wiih sound.
I have found that in most instances
where nu interview ia requested from
11 man who haa but recently sprang
into prominence, or where he holds a
subordinate position, or where he ie
Ignorant, it is extremely diflictilt to
iiceumpllsh yonr object. In the firat
instance the individual la ao full of hia
own importance that he usually con
Hitlers thut it would be beneath hia dignity to grant an interview. In the
scieiiil c.-t-e lie may be quite in lyin
pathv with you, but afraid of laying
anything which might not accord with
the views of his chief, aud in the lust
ini.t.'111'c you are likely to find the sub
ji'it yo miaplcious that you are attempt
ing to (nice adv.tnt.ige of him that your
real object-, ruimely, to secure hia opiu
ion, will lie frustrated.
The thorouglv well educated gentleman iu any walk of li/e is the ideal sub
jurt for an interview. He i�� enay of ac-
cess, hi fuse you have good grounds for
meeting him; he believes you lioue.it until snch time ns you have given liim
cause to think otherwise,' he listens to
yon. nnd immediately grants you the iu
lerviea*. or refuses, stating his reasons,
lind he alwaya treats you with the utmost cniirleoy. There are men who,
when asked by a reporter to grant an interview, uppeiir to think that the p-rant-
ing of tiie rei-oiest places both the re
porter nud tho journal he represents tin
tier ii grout obligation to him. forgetting
nil the while that he has been paid a
griiiit cofuplinient, inaainuch aa the
newspaper otters to publish bia views to
the world at tbe sacrifice of other important items of newa
Courteous Wilfrid Laurier.
Perhaps the most pleasing duty to
which I waa ever assigned, in the interviewing line, was that whicli secured um au introduction to Hon,
Wilfrid Laurier. I was detailed to imk
Mm a series of questions bearing
upon the policy of the Kefunn purty.
I found him at the house of a friend
iu Toronto and mude known my mission. I was ut once admitted to the
presence* of the great leader of the
deform party. He wae sitting nlone
ill thu library writing. Iniiiniiiiitily 1
entered the room he arose and extended
his hnnd iu friendly greeting.
"Aro you visiting me ns Koko, my
yo'ing friend, or as an Empire reporter?" he raid, at he graciously motioned
me t) a chair.
I replied that I approached him in
a dual capacity. He laughed and
thoroughly appreciated the situation
tieeeeer-r. lo b, AroliUd.
Bnt divisions aro taken to no purpose,
votes nre thrown away, rules of procedure are valueless, if peoples and Parliament* ore not governed bv discretion
justice and patriotism. Our system of
government���its executive, administrative and legislative methods-has all tho
essential elements of strength when
worked in this spirit of discretion. Under no other system wonld it bo possible
to harmonize the antagonistic elements
of race, religion aud language which
exist in ('anada. One great danger
must he always avoided, and that is,
the sectarianism which represent* the
bigotry of past ages of religions fcu.ls,
and luornis uot simply divisions in political parlies, but national disintegration.
In studying the form do not let us forget the substance. No constitutional
rules, no mere forma of procedure, can
of themselves make a people happy and
great, unless their rulers recognize in
the fullest sense their obligations to the
State, and exercise tbeir power with
discretion, and endeavor to elevate public opinion. The machinery of tho most
admirable constitution that men cau
frame from the experience of the world's
history may be relatively worthless,
whilo the large powers and responsibilities that are entrusted to the governing
bodies���powers and responsibilities
never emliodied ln acta of Parliament���
are forgotten in view of partv triumph,
personal ambition or pecuniary gain,

Mount Samanala, or Adam's Peak,
use ofthe highest mountains on the
Island of Ceylon, is the scene of a re
markahle geological formation nnd the
���pot around which many curious legenda
and superstitions cluster. According to
thc Mohammedan story, Adam, after
the fall and expulsion from the Garden
of Eden, waa taken by au angel to the
top of the mountain, which now bean

a hand of brigands appeared and attacked tlie party. The brigands

Troops wero i. . once hurried to thc
scene of the r motion Irom lsmidt,

districts, ami tho authorities* armed
peasants and sent them iu pursuit
of tbe brigands,   judging    that,   not
heing in uniform and with their
knowledge of tlie country, they
would attract less attention than
tbe soldiers and gendarmes and more
easily reach tho brigands. Tbe latter seemed perfectly cognizant ol
the movements of the rescuing parties
and, upon tho peasants approaching,
greeted them witb a volley from
their fin do sleclo rifles.
Finally n meeting wns arranged by
members ol the Embassy and delegates s**nt by the brigands to wind
up the negotiations. Mr. Bouct, of
the Embassy, succeeded In having
thc ransom reduced from ��25,000 to
��10,000. Of course It was necessary
to cxerclso the greatest caution und
diplomacy, us the lives und fate of
these defenceless women were ut
stake. The brigands were very bold
nnd nggresslvo, and would not yield
ono Inch from tho stand tliey had
taken, though It evidently turned
out that tho abduction was a mistake, aud the Indies seized were not
the ones originally expected. This
made littio dlffereiu'o to tlmiu, however; they hnd their captives uud
held all tbe winning cunts.
It appeared later tliat tbe baud
had been lying lb wait for n parly ol
rich Armenians nnd the wife of a
(iriK'l: banker, who were reported to
carry a largo amount of money and
Jewels. This party was to have gone
to Koorl from Constantinople the day
the French women left it, but tor
somo reason or other their departure
was delayed at the last moment.
Tho knowledge possessed by the brigands proved that some confederate
in Constantinople kept them Informed as to tho movements ol important persons, nnd their conduct during
the whole affair, as told by tho ladies
afterward, indicated an organized
mode of procedure, ilttlo to be expected from such  lawless people.
Tlio end of the negotiations was
reached on June 10th, and tho two
French ladies were brought from the
mountains where they bad been in
Captivity for almost fourteen days,
and delivered to tlielr friends, none
the worso, physically, for their experience, but very much worn out with
the nnxiety and uncertainty tliey hud
undergone during their enforced sojourn in tlio brigands' hiding place.
One of tlio brigands was captured a
few days niter tlieir release in a
shepherd's hut, where he bud fallen
asleep aft.'r a carouse. He bui rendered
without a struggle. .Seven hundred
and eighty pounds were found upon
him, evidently whnt remained of his
share of the spoils. Tbo rest of the
band nre being actively pursued, but
owing to the difficult nature of the
country It is doubtful whether they
will ever be cuptured.
Tlio story of their capture and
treatment hy the band is very graphically told by one of the Indies, the
other being iu su nervous ar condition
as to  still  need tlio doctor's  care.
" After our friend lift us," she relates, "we were hurried further inland,
lutu what I shuuld say wus tho heart

clsu tlie horror of it was so great
that we were numbed by it, incapable
of any feeling whatsoever. We finally
encamped iu a clearing wliich had
evidently bicn used by our captors before, aud there, as I found out afterward, awaited the result of the negotiations aud tlie arrival uf the money.

our hearts were very sick and our
courage very low, as we contemplated
our captors and imagined what our
lot might he did the negotiations
tall through.
**Ou our way up the mountains the
brigauus treated us very roughly, but
once iu salety their attitude changed
to one of gentlemanly and even gallant conduct. A small hut was erected
for us from branches of trees and
ferns, and leaves were collected for

in lending us their thick coats as coverings against tho heavy dews uud

uiglits lu periect torrents, and noi-
witlistuuding all their efiurts to protect us, the hut which sheltered us

a little gesture, mnde, as it were, to
himsell, as he went up the dark
stuirs. it meant, "Why should 1
care? It is nothing to me."
At tills moment the door he had
kuockeil at was opened wido, and
���n ray or light falling on tlie man ascending the staircase, showed him to
lie tall, with gray hair. He had a
long, pale, beardless lace, and was
dressed in a frieze coat, with waistcoat ol tliat shade ol red whicli was
called, In the language oi fashion at
that period, Foulon's blood. His
breeches were ol black casslmer,
whicli set off the whiteness of his
stockings. He had steel buckles la his
shoes, which were ol good calfskin
morocco. Altogether his dress denoted that care for appearances,
combined with economy, whicli distinguishes the class oi tradesmen all
over the world. The cockade on his
hat was a woollen cockade, the Commune having recently forbidden silk
to be used for that purpose, and decreeing that all should be arrested
who thought the worsted of equality not good enough to bear witness
to their patriotism.
"Who are you ?" asked the old woman sharply, "and what do you
want of  the Citizen Cezaron?"
"Who am I? I am a virtuous mnn
and a good citizen. I should thiuk,
my good woman, you might have
seen tliat at a glance. My name is
Maximilian Gregolre, at your service if you want me, to be useful to
one's fellow-creatures aas always
seemed to me tho first of duties. I
have come to nsk after Citizen Cezaron, wlio is my .clerk, and whom I
have not seen ior four days, la the
young citizen 111?"
"All right," said the womun, "But
you need not have used so ninny
words. Citizen Ceznron is quite well.
You will find hlui at home."
Then, passing before thc visitor,
she opened another door. Citizen Uregolre heard a littio scream. Ho had
taken Manette by surprise lu tlie
outer room, and as she caught sight
of him she ran into the bed chamber;
not so quickly, however, but that
the old gentleman had seen a pretty
picture, Manette seated at the table
beside Claude, and, ns sho had
brought no dress from the Hue de
Bussy but the gray gown she was
wearing, sho was anxious to spare
It, and, thus early In the morning,
had not put It oa. She wore a colored skirt, her pelisse was thrown
lightly over her shoulders, her soft,
round arms were hare. Citizen Gregolre fancied that as he entered he
saw them round the neck of Claude.
On the table were the remains of
a pie, nnd some oranges; food
enough for lovers, when euten before
a bright wood lire, whose logs were
crackling merrily. This littio scene
moved tho heart of the good Grogo-
Ire; peace and happiness ln those
days were so rarely to be seen. Tears
cauie Into his eyes, and to relieve
his emotion he apostrophized Manette thus:
"Young he. uty, you seek to conceal yourself like the nymph ol old
who hid beneath the willows. Fugit nil
Bailees. Your modesty is too eaBlly
alarmed ; for lovo ls the first necessity
of nature. Those who lovo have no
reason to be ashamed, they ought
rather to bo proud of loving. The Supreme Being Binlles on those who have
cast from thciu the fetters of superstition. "We live In an ago of holy liberty. Anil you, young citizen, Is ' It
because you al-e so happy that you
havo neglected your duty to me?
Well, I can pardon you. I can sympathize with you. 1 have known tho
rapture of young lovo in the spring*
tlmo ol my Ule. Enjoy lu peace the
happiness I envy you."
Mnnetto, In tlio adjoining chamber,
burst Iuto a merry laugh, and reappeared, having put her dross on ; Buying ns Slio entered ; "You apeak like a
book, Citizen (iregolre. You all speak
aa tliey do ln books ; that la what I
am always flailing fault with In my
dear Claude. All your fine phrases I
hear will not hinder you from taking
him away from mo."
Tho citizen did not deny that he had
come fur that purpose, "lie is my assistant," he wild. "After fulfilling
the duties of tlie heart It Is right to
resume sociul duties. Work la also
"Good heavens 1" ahe broke ln,
"how you all talk of duty 1 Could you
not eat an orange ?"
He took the chair she pointed out to
him. Bhe peeled the orange with her
pretty fingers. The citizen looked nt
her with admiration. Ho was moved
when ho thought of their young happiness, and how soon It might bo ended. He mado Claude sit on the other
side of him, and extended his hands
over their two young heads as 11 ln
blessing Manette continued to laugh.
Meantime the old womnn who wnlt-
od on the lovers came ln and out of
the room. The old man looked again
at her black dress, and his previous
Idea came back to hlin. He Bald suddenly to Claude:
"Why ls that woman tn mourning? Has any one belonging to her
been  "
"No,  no,"  whispered  Claude quick
ly. "It is not tliat. Her husband���
a fever,"
" Have you heard that they are going to set ui) a Criminal Tribuaal,
from which there will be no appeal ?"
" I  kaow.    .'lease hush."
Manette, however, had heard, and
her gaiety was at an end.
Citizen Gregolre, like everyone else,
was under the Influenco of fear, but
lie did not like to own It. In fine
oratorical scateacos ho told the
young couple he wus thinking of going away on a short Journey, If he
could obtain the conaent of his section, nnd a permit to pass tlie barrier from the municipal authorities.
Claude would bo obliged to take Ida
place ln his absence.
Manette roused herself from
thoughts of danger.
" Ah, Claude," Bho cried, " If we
could only get a permit  "
" Yes," ho answered, " we would go
to Vellzy. We would then he free
nad live happy over after."
Citizen Gregolre had Interrupted
their first days of happiness, but he
had come In good time to naslst them
ln another matter. Manette did not
dare to be Been ln that quarter; she
could not go nbroad to make purchases. She had come to Claude
with the scantiest provision of
clothes, having only whnt she carried
ln the mysterious bundle whicli on
her adventurous Journey across
Paris had dropped bo often from
her hands. She was unwilling to ask
lier uncle and aunt, who had treated
her bo Ul, to send her any of her
things. She was determined thnt
her uncle, whom she called Judas In
her heart, Bhould never hear ol Ids
nioco again. Citizen Gregolre undertook to buy for her linen nnd other
materials for dress, which he said he
would send her by a trusty person.
He undertook this duty readily,
but not without Indulging in some of
the fine phrases of the period. "Were
I the God of the Sun, I would clothe
Beauty in  my rnys,"  he Bald.
*But you aro not,"' replied Manette? who had Bomewhat recovered
her gaiety, "and all I want Is something to make a gown of, nnd some
linen. You will see how well dressed
I shall be then."
The purchases made by the good citizen came the next day. He had
ndded to the order a piece of Bilk, ln
stripes of the three national colors, a
note pinned upon it said that It was
Intended for fine warm days ln summer, and ns a wedding present.
Manette blushed. Claude laughed.
" The good man," he said, "thinks his
solemn benediction has married ns."
It was now the month of March, but
the weather was too cold to wear the
Bilk drees then. Manette set to work.
Claude returned to the office In the
Iiue Grenelle-Honore. He camo home
nt night and found that Manette had
been sewing steadily all day. Their
dinner wna always frugal, and they
needed many things to perfect their
housekeeping. For Instance, they had
only one glass. " Drink after me,"
said Manette, three days later, " and
you will know what I most wish for."
He did not guess right. She took
his hand and placed It on her heart.
" Look for It here," snid she; " you
will see how I lore you, but I should
be much happier, Claude, if we were
married by a priest. Cannot we be
really married, dearest Claude 1 Even
though such a marriage, it we could
accomplish It, might Involve our
deaths aad that of the priest, too ?"
Accordingly, tho next evening when
Claude came home he was not alone
ae usual. A man Was with him. Be
seemed still young, but his hnlr was
white. Goodness and gentleness
seemed beaming from his face. He
stopped short on tlie threshold and
stretched out his right hand. Manette
fell upon her knees. She knew now
for what purpose he had come. Old
Brigette, to whom Claude had spoken
on their way upstairs, lighted two
caadles ln place of the church tapers.
Claude looked to see If tho curtains
were drawn close, aud if the doors
were fnstcned. Then he came and
knelt beside her who was about to
become his wife in .tlio sight of God,
ns it had been her dearest wish she
should be.
The priest, raising his eyes to
heaven, Implored the blessing of his
divine Master oa these two young
people, who, ut the risk ot their lives,
were complying with his law. Ah for
his own lite, hu had long offered It a
sacrifice to God whenever that sacri-
tlco   Bhouhl   be   clnlmed.     Then     he
Manette put her linu,I lu that of
"Father," she a.-ihl softly, "It has
been my dearest wiah that what yuu
are now doing fur us ahould lie done.
But It Is ho whu hns fulfilled my wish,
uml hruiight you hero. Give hlin a
double blessing, father, tor the Joy
that he lies given ino."
Thenceforward they were husband
and wife. Tho priest went away.
Claude accompanied hlin into tho noxt
street. The moment they were gone a
dreadful vlslun rose before the eyes of
the young wife. Again she saw that
tearful sceae upon the quay, that poor,
pale face, that bloody head. He, too,
had been a priest, and those ferocious
beasts had killed him. If others sliould.
recognize the prleat who hud Just mar*'
rled them, they would run him down,
and send him���him and his guldo	
Just married���and a widow!
But Claude camo back. She threw
heraelf lato hla arms. There was pence
uow lnher heart. They had the blessing of heaven.
The next day Claude was much excited by news brought him by Brigette
as she poured out hla morning coffee.
She told him that by a new decree the
Commune had ordered that to the
front door of every house a painted
board should he affixed, oo which the
names of   the   Inhabitants   should be
written. Manette, wlio they thought
was Btlll asleep, suddenly made her
appearance. "Now you can write
Citizen Cezaron and his wife," Bhe said.
" What should we have said yesterday before we had beea married?"
Manette spoke triumphantly. Claude
shook hla head. He had not, as
Manette hnd, the enthusiasm of a renewed faith; he did not feel, as his
wife did, tho happiness of recovering
her eelf-respect after a tall.  He said:
"But, Manette, we dare not avow
our marriage to the municipality. We
have uot appeared beiore the municipal officer.
" But we are married, Claude, and
God is with us."
He looked at her with surprise, for
ho had uever suspected her of deep
religious feeling. Thoae under the roof
ot Citizen Audrey did net trouble
themselves much ubout God and Hla
coiutiiundments; no prayers were
thero oltered for 'Jod's guidance, or
Hla aid.
" Why, Manette," Claude said, "you
havu more piety thau 1 have ever suspected."
"Listen," aho said, placing hur hand
upon his shoulder, " It aeeius to me
that never belore did I look Into mv
soul. The v.slt ot the priest revealed
new things to me. lie is outlawed ;
his life la forlclt, and the moment ot
liia discovery would bo the moment of
hla death.. I kuow it. Kvery time he
conies forth from hia hhling pluce ho
rlska Ida life; and yet tho moment
you said come, he came. Ills hoart
must ho full ot love to God and men.
He believes, he hopes ; for himself he
has no fears. And now he has made
me so happy. 1 was suffering from
the thought that I hnd no right to
cnl! myself your wile. I felt ashamed
when you hissed mo to kiss you
back ugnin. Now that Is all over.
Real happiness has been brought to
us by that good priest; aad are you
trying to trouble It already ? Are
you going to give way to lears like
those ln that house of Judas ln the
Kue de Bussy? Do as I do. I put
my trust in Him Whose minister yesterday gave me Dis blessing. In
Heaven's name two honest hearts are
oue. God will not tear ua asunder,
ao long ns we are fulthtul to cacti
other. I believe It firmly. Claude,
the priest has changed everything
for me."
���Claude rose to his feet. He took Ids
youug wife ln his arms and smiled at
her confidence and enthusiasm. They
warmed  hia  heart.
" You are right," ho said ; " let us
be happy without fears. I will write
upon the hoard Citizen Cezaron and
hia wlte. Who will be likely to enquire whether we have been betore the
municipal officer ? The agents of the
Commune cannot make sure of anything. If they ask me about you, I
shall tell them we aru married according to  the law ot nature."
"Then I shall contradict you,
Claude. I shall say 1 am his wife, according to the law of Cod."
Claude sincerely hoped thut it
might not be Manette who would
have to answer the questions ot official Bans-calottes, but he hardly understood her since her marriage. Up
to that time he had looked on her as
oue who, according to the set phrase
"had broken loose from the trammels
ot superstition." Now he seemed to
see ln her a vein ot piety.
"Y'ou are surprised at me," she
But the effect ot her fervor was to
give hlui strength, for Claude hud a
certain softness uf disposition, of
whleh Manette was aware. He went
out, and descended rapidly Into the
street. But he paused as he set foot
upon the pavement, and looked, as
every other man did in those days,
up and down the street, to see If there
were any chauco of being Involved In
a street row.
The Btreet was quiet, almost deserted. In trout of tlie house opposite
his own Claude saw a tall man
standing, and looked at him Juat long
enough to make sure that ho was
not an observateur, that Is, a police
spy; and alter this he took uo further notice. He looked back at his
own front door, however, where in a
few short days the placard might be
placed which might ensure his own
arrest, for to facilitate arrests had
been the object of this decree of the
Commune. Every Inhabitant was to
put down not only his surname but
hla given mime, his ago and Ills profession. Claude would have to write
"Citizen Claude Cezaron, cle>*k to Citizen Gregolre, recevetir de rentes, age
28,   and  hla wife Manette, nge 22"
He walked on. The man ho hud remarked on tho left hand side of the
street crossed over nud wnlked behind
him. Clnude paid him more attention.
Wns this man following him ?
A few moments after he had no
doubt ot it, and walked oa faster.
This, had ho known it. was his heat

ho fuund out thnt It was so. The tall
fellow, who seemed bo strangely desirous to bear hlui company, wns
dressed In the latest fashion, lie wore

round, Intending to remark, "I shuuld
think you would split thusc pantaloons 1" But the Impertinence was
forestalled by the man's politeness.
Clnude found himself addressed, hat

"Monsieur,"   he   bi'gun.
This, ln addition to the lilted hat,
would have Insured ills nrrcst hud any

"Monsieur," Bald the unknown, "is
not your name Claude Cezaron?"
"It  is,"  replied Claude ; "but "
"You do not know ine, but I nm
sure you have heard of me. I had
the happiness not long ago to save
Mademoiselle de la Frogeolliere from
a great danger."
"Mademoiselle de la Fregoolllere's

said Claude eagerly. "You must bo

A shade passed over the face of Laverdac when he heard Claude spenk
of himself os Mademoiselle de la Fre-
geolliere's husband; but then he
smiled. Ho did not believe that thoy
were really married.
Claude partly guessed his thoughts.
Manette was not there In person, but
he felt her presence. Sho seined to
whisper In his enr: "Tell hlui who I
nm. Let him know I nm your wife.
Tell him we are married by a priest,
ua you know that I would do, were
it at the peril of my life."
"Citizen Laverdac," aaid Claude,
lowering his voice, "I know to whom
I speak, and I can trust you. I nm

benediction from ouo of the Church's

"Y'ou know my house, It seems,

'"I guessed It was ynu, however, tor

"Ah!" said Claude, "then tho portrait must have flattered me."
"Madamo do Laverdac has been
most anxious to get news of you for

nssure you, thnt you find me here to

Cluude held out his kind hand. Laverdac pressed it ia botli his. 1'ur-

unfortunately, he had taken n violent
fancy for oue who waa now another
man's wife, and he had not sell-control enougli to mnster it. It waa uot

might have quarreled by that time.
Who could tell ? Such things hud happened. But Laverdac had not found
mattera as he hoped. Far otherwise.
Claude and Manette wero married.
" Of course I Bhall be glad to come
to see you," he said, " if the Cltoyenne Cozaron will allow nie."
" I caa anBiver for her belag very
glad to eee you," aaid Claude warmly. " She will be charmed when I tell
her I have met you."
Laverdac was well pleased with
this assurance ; but a moment after Claude threw cold water on 1iIb
own last words. " I truat," he said,
" that the Cltoyenne Laverdac will

" But now," ho went on, " the Clto-

resume her acquaintance with your
charming Cltoyenne Cezaron,"
The two young men walked side by
sido until they reached the l'alaia
Royal���now the Palais Egallte. Laverdac paused at the Cute Corazza,
where he wished to look at the morning papers, while Claude had to hurry
to the Rue Gronelle-Uonorc, for he
wns late that day. i
Tho Rtrseta that morning wero
quiet. The weather was beautiful,
Tliere was a flush of green upon tho
trees and gardena behind tho mutilated fronts of aristocratic houses,
nnd dwellings of lesa pretcnaiou on
the Boulevards.
Men were crying newspapers. The
news of the duy was that a proposition had been made to tho Convention by a Glrumlin nnd a Montugnard
to establish a Committee ut l'ubllc
Safety. Claude, aa ho heard  It, wild:
"We could look alter nur own safety
without help from a committee. All
we want Is that men shuuld lu good
"How Uu you define u good Republican?" nsked Laverdac, laughing.
"Are yuu  yourself ni'counted  u good

"Have you tho heart fur amusement ?"  usked   Claude.
"Indeed    1 have.    And 1 would
venture to bet that yuu uud yuur
bride would accept an invitation tu
mnko up a party to the theatre."
"No indeed. You nre right ln
thinking that wo ought to be happy
while wo can.���but amusement Is different."
"Pleasure, however, Is the better
part of happiness. But 1 have a piece
of news which I think may relieve
you of a great anxiety. I should be
surprised tu hear tliat yuu had for-
gotten the'"name of Buscnille."
"Ot Buscallle?" repeated Claude,
with a sudden stnrt. "How comes It
that you know abuut Bu-callle? Oh !
I remember; Manette told everything
to the Cltoyenne Laverdac Of course
we remember him only too well. But
my wlte aad I aever speak of him

"You do not wish even tho remembrance ot  hateful things  to intrude
