ladies of our party in, and we were soon
pulling for H. M. S. Imperieuse which
lay at anchor in Comox Bay.
As out boat drew near I was strongly
impressed with the wonderful masterpiece of man's creation and genius, like
some living thing conscious ol and secure
in its powerful strength, lying at rest.

On the quarter deck some of the men
were arranging a stage for a concert to
be held that evening.
The quarter deck is the place of exercise for the officers, ard where religious
service is held in summer; it is ilso the
ball room, where the delightful dances
for which the navy is famed, are given.
It is covered overhead, and sides with
canvass, and is as clean as possible.
Here was one of the four monstrous 9.2

There are carriages for ihe Nordenfeldt
guns, of which the ship carries four,
eighteen Hotchkiss 6 pounder, and
six 3 pounder, 6ve hundred magazine
guns, and 12 6 in. Q. F. or quick tiring
guns, besides hundreds of Colts revolvers.

The ship is lighted by electricity,
which is supplied by a daisy little engine.
On the upper deck forward are ths
officers cabins, which are tastefully
decorated, with pictures, swords, and
trophies of different countries and engagements���battles of course.
Dr. Philip courteously conducted us
through the -hospital; it is comfortably
heated and furnished; an operating table
in the best lighted part of tbe room; easy
clean beds, and two patients, and a nurse
who wore on his sleeve the badge of
the Red Cross.
The marines and blue jackets were
having tea, and evidently in a happy
mood. At the huge range or stove the
cooks were preparing dinner Down
again, where to be told I stood under
the water, gave me a sensation of delightful daring. There was a little stair,
leading to the place where "slops," are
kept, which means rum; other hatchways
led to where more costly exhilerating
fluids were stored; still further down I
was told was the powder magazine;
sailors were polishing a huge projectile

Sentries stood rigid at their post.
Men were digging trenches for rifle

small boats were out on the bay.

Col. Shakespear of II. M. S. Imperieuse, has spent years in active service
in the Soudan, having distinguished himself in thirteen battles and winning four
beautiful medals, as testimony of Her
Majesty's appreciation of his bravery
and devotion as a soldier.
Dr. Williams also wears several medals.
H. M. S. Imperieuse is assuredly a
thing of wonder, if not "of beauty," and
her officers delightful entertainers.

And evidently Charlotte Is of the
lean persuasion���she doesn't like knickerbockers- She says : "I confeas that I
am down on bloomers. 1 believe in
womanly women, and don't like the
mannish style any more than I admire
the feminine mau. Let ub have some
distinctions ns well as differences between the sexes. Your mannish woman
wants all the privileges of a man, and
she expects to be treated as a lady
besides. It isn't quite fail* to the men.
Good mothers are not made of such
shift, and I have oliserved that the
children brought Into tlie world by
women of this description are apt to
be freaks of one sort or another."
The " Road House" evil is one that
In the vlciulty of lnrge cities attracts some attention, and Charlotte
giva, it a slap eu passant: " Those
establishments, so commonly frequented by youug men aud young women
ou wheels, furnish a very large percentage of tlie recruits for much worse
Plates. Perhaps you are uot aware of
the fact that New York city gives up
20,0011 women annually to tlie mino*
taur of immorality. The average life
of these girls after they have taken
up this mode of existence is three an.'
a half years. Disease nnd drink quickly wipe them out, poor things! But
their places are constantly lilled by
fresh recruits. Think ol it, 100,000
girls thus sacrificed every five years
in New York city nlone"
-Mrs. Charlotte .Smith, of tlie Woman's Rescue League, Washington,
hns no use for tho bicycle, viewing
It as a very demon of evil. In a letter to the press she says, among
very many other strong tilings:
"Bold, Indeed," snys a critic, "would
be ho who would dare show the
wheelwoman neglect or disrespect I"
Listen to thut, now I In what a new
and charming light does it reveal the
average young man who rides a wheel
���the knigiit of tho road sans peur et
sans reproche, wlio would lie incapable of taking oven the slightest
liberty with a bicycle girl! Under
otber circumstances he would not
hesitate probably to kiss or even
to squeeze her, If he had a chance,
but her badge of freemasonry in the
"brotherhood" of tho bicycle renders
her sacred In his eyes for evermore.
It ls a beautiful Idea, I think. 1
would think it still moro beautiful
if I had not had so many such girls
and tlielr offspring on my hands, incidental to my work forf tho Wroman's
Rescue League."

There is more catarrh in this section of tlie country than nil other
diseases put together, and until the
last few yoars was supposed to be Incurable. For a great many years doctors pronounced it a locnl disease, and
prescribed local remedies, and by
constantly failing to cure it with local
treatment pronounced It Incurable.
Science lias proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, mnnufactuured
by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio,
Is the only constitutional cure on the
market. It Is tnken Internally In doses
from ten drops to a teaspoonful. It
acts directly on tlie blood nnd mucous
surfaces of the system. They offer
$100 for any case it fails to cure. Send
for circulars nnd testimonials. Address, F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.

A Trying Position.
Old Mrs. M., who was seriously ill,
found herself to be ln a trying position, which she defined to a friend in
these words: "You see, my daughter
Harriet is married to one o' these
homeypath doctors and my daughter
Kate to an allypath. If I call hi the
homeypath my allypath son-in-law on'
his wile git mad, an' If I call in my
allypath aom-!n-law my homeypath
son-in-law an' Iub wife git mad, an' If
I go ahead an' git well without either
of 'em they'll both be mad, eo I don't
eee but I'd better die outright."
Be sure and use that old und well-tried
remedy, Mrs. Wlnslow's Soothing
Syrup for children teething. It
soothes the child, softens the gums,
allays all pain, cures wind colic and
is the best remedy for diarrhoea.

to my advanced age, my neighbors
did not think It possible for me to

last determined to give them
a trial. I commenced takiug tlie pills
ubout the lst of Feb., 1895, taking at

Increasing to three at a time. Within
a couple of weeks 1 could notice au
improvement, and by the first of April
I was able to be about as usual, free
from the pains, and with but very
little of the stiffness left, I continued
the treatment a short time longer
and found myself fully restored. It Is
uow nearly a year since I discontinued takiug the Pink Pills, aud I have
not had auy return ol the trouble in
that time. I have no hesitation in
saying that I owe my recovery to
Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills."
These pills are a perlect blood builder aud nerve restorer, curing such disease-) as rheumatism, neuralgia, partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia, St.
Vitus' Dance, nervous headache, all
nervous troubles, palpitation of the
heart, the after effects of la grippe,
diseases depending on humors of the
blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. Pink Fills give a healthy
glow to pale aud sallow complexions
and are a specific for troubles peculiar
to the female system, and In the case
of men they effect a radical cure In
all cases arising from mental worry,
overwork, or excesses. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills may be had of all druggists
or direct by mall from Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont., or

Statistics Seem to ShowThat ft State of
Marrlage~iiiri^eiWaDle~to" Widowhood��� Human Perfection Impossible
���Interesting Views of Authorities
Who Have Taken up thfi Discussion
of the Subject.
" Ought widows to marry ���'" asks
the New Vork Herald.
This question is exciting Q good
deal of discussion at present, both In
England and 1'runuo.
Thoso who favor perpetual widowhood dwell on the following [acts:
Queen Victoria lias remained true
to her ouo husband) ami evidently hor
daughter Beatrice is determined to
remain true to tlio memory uf the
Prinoe ol Battenburgi for otherwise
slio would hardly havo placed ou his
coffin a wreath bearing tho Inscription! "Until death us do part; until death reunites us." Now, it is
argued, suppose Queen Victoria had
takeu a second husband a short time
after the death of thu. Prince consort, is it not likely that sueh a EJtep
would have mado her BoniQwhati unpopular among lier subjects? Again,
is it likely that the mother or. Al-
phonso XIII. of Spain aud tho Queen
Regent of Holland would havo succeeded as well in preserving the
thrones for their children if they bad
married again after the expiration ol
tho time prescribed by law and the
usages of society? Among the
royal personages in Kurope to-day
there aro none, it is claimed, who are
moro esteemed and respected than
the crowned widows, among whom
Queen Victoria is said to regard with
especial dlBfavor women who marry
a second time, and the main reason
is because they have remained faithful
to their royal spouses and are moldy
and disinterestedly doing this duty
toward their children.
Lut all women, is the reply, ure not
queens, aud, if there is auy truth in
the principle ol the equality of the
sexes, widows should be as much at
liberty to marry a second time as
widowers are. Only insatiably jealous
men and sentimental old maids can,
it is claimed, bo of a different opinion.
According to Mre. Lynn Linton it is
the height of cruelty to condemn a
woman to perpetual widowhood. Let
women marry again If they please, she
says, and if tliey have courage enough
to try their fortune in a lottery in
which there are so few lucky numbers.
Her opinion seems to be that of utmost all ol those who have taken
part lu the discussion, and, unless statistics lio, it Is also the opiuou of leading economists. According to M. Mor-
selti, wlio is an authority on lho subject, out of oU5 men who committed
suicide in Italy, 100 were married,
108 were bachelors, und 157 were widowers, lu France the number of
bachelors who commit suicide is relatively larger than in Italy, but it lu
among the widowers that suicide finds
the most victims. As regards married
women, out oi every hundred wlio commit suicide in Italy and France tlie
majority are widows, lu Prance the
number of widows who commit suicide is twice as great us that of
women whose husbands are living.
Prom tliese statistics M. Morselli and
those who think with him conclude
that widows aud widowers are far
more likely to Ue driven to despair and
death than other men and women,
and that therefore it is the duty of
society to encourage them to marry
Ou the other hand M. U. Labudie-
Lagrave, a French writer, ilous not
think much of the statistics. "Tho
conclusions arrived ut," he nays,
"seo-in to me very much exaggwis
uted. If so many widows aro uuaule
to support the burden of life, it is
not chagrin at the loss of their husbands which drives them to commit
suicide, but rather anxiety us to how
they sliall support themselves and
their children, and it is very probable that tbo reason why they remain
widows is not becauso tliey desire to
remain truo to their busoauds, but
becauso they cannot find men who
urewilliugto burden themselves with
the support of them and tlieir children.'
M* Labadie-Lagrave admits that
thero may be many excellent reasons
why women sliould marry a second
time, and ho lays stress on the tact
that It is always dangerous to require of human beings a degree of
perfection wliich thoy are Incapable
of attaluing. Thus lie maintains tliat
in many cases second marriages are
desirable if only Irom a moral point
of view.
Mrs. Florence Miller is of tlie same
opinion. Take tlio case, she says, of
it childless widow who does m.t retain very pleasant memories of her
husband and who is inning away tu
solitude, while near tier lives a widower who was also not very fond
of his wife and wlio Is also living a
lonely lifo, having no oue to care for
hts liou.se or to prepare his meals or
to keep hlin company during tho
evenings. Now, would tt not lie inhuman, sho asks, to deprive these
isolated souls of tho right of marrying and of beginning together at
their own risk a new life?

Notwithstanding this Tain managed
to persuade a lady fair to become
tils bridei and went to tho minister
to arrange matters, Thu reverend
gentleman shared tlie common notion respecting Tarn's mental capacity, and therefore proceeded with

other questions the minister asked:
:" As this ts a very important step

It sounds incredibly but it Is stated
as a fact, that GO per cent, of the retail drug stores of Brooklyn and New
York aro Tor sale. Tho cause for depression In drug store values ts the
growing prnctico of doctors in using
compressed tablets. Insteud of writing prescriptions to be taken to drug
stores to fill, they hand out these
tablets to patients, giving the patient
directions for tlielr use. Another reason for the depression is that department stores lmve taken the trade of
tlio druggists In combs, brushes, soaps
and perfumery, and tho candy dealers
havo corralled tlie soda-water business.
The Slstir.e Chapel.
The chapel Is a beautiful place in
itself, by its simple and noble proportions, us welt us by tho wonderful architectural decorations of the
ceiling, conceived by Michelangelo as
a series of franios for his pnintings.
Beautiful beyond description, too, is
the exquisite marble screen. No
one can say certainly who made it;
tt was perhaps designed by thu architect of tho chapel himself, Bue-
eto l'ontelli. There are a few such
marvels ot unknown hands lu tho
world, and a sort ol romance clings
to them, with an element of mystery
tbat stirs the imagination, in a
dreamy wny, far moro than tlie
glided oak tree in the nrms of Six-
tus IV., by which the namo of Ko-
vere ls symbolized. Slxtus commanded, and the chapel was built, but who

The October number of The Canadian
Magazine, which is a splendid number
by tbe way, in its notes of books and
authors, has.the following:
"Not gold merely, but poetry must
hereafter be classed among the products
of our distant sister province of British
Columbia. Mr. Eric Duncan, of Comox,
has a volume of poems in the press of
William Briggs, to appear very shortly,
under the title of "Rural Rhymes."
The readers of The News are familar
witb aome of Mr. Duncan's fugitive
poems. They breathe the true poetic
spirit, and abound in quaint delicious
humor. They are fragrant with the
odor of the field, and bright with pictures of farm and animal life. Onc little
gem of what might be called poster
poetry, hai found its way into many a
Krap book. His hynms are elevated in
lone and language and worthy a place
among Ihe best published. In structure
his vetse is perfect and lie finds liltle
occasion to resort to poetic licence.
When thc volume is out we will give a
more extended notice.

Raise Answered.
To The Editor ot lhe Weekly News:
In "Chatter" last week, a space is devoted 10 running down the members of the
male persuasion, whe are tardy in taking
unto themselves a woman "tender and
true." Now I think "Heine" lakes a
very one sided view of the case, as 1
feel sure there are many eligible young
bachelors, awaiting to grasp the opportunity of becoming benedicts, if only
they could Hnd the right woman. Aye!
there'a the rub! Girls nowadays are
so artificial the majority of men are not
disposed to wed a tig lit* laced sickly
luoking ballroom butterfly; but rather
prefer 10 remain selfish bachelors until
they ean meet a real womanly woman,
and then���presto! clubs,sports, and so
called freedom, are not in il!
I would therefore respectfully venture
to suggest that our worthy editor of the
U. W. N. would establish a marrriage
bureau where all tbe eligible young
ladies of Union might leave their photos,
and a list of their personal characteristics
to be submitted to the young bachelors
on payment of a small fee. Mutual
introductions follow, (arranged of course
by the editor) and I venture to say, in
course of lime the evil which "Reine" so
greatly deplores, will be a thing of the

of her beautiful sister, the Duchess of
���Sutherland,, whom onu sees iu her box
at Covent Garden fivo nights out of

in tho most perfect health and spirits.
There are also a guod mauy people
unkind enough tu credit a fresh bit
of gossip floating about as to Lady
Warwick's suddeu withdrawal from all
social guyety ia Lo.idou this season,
and hero Ls the reason tliey assigu
for it. b
As you know, the open differences
that have lung existed between the
Princess oi Wales and the Countess of
Warwick havo caused tlie most widespread discussion aud argument in tlie
most important London social circles.
Tho fact that tiio approaching wedding festivities oi Princess Maud and
Prince Charles oi Denmark means a
goud deal oi entertaining at .Marlborough House and Buckingham Pul-
uce, over which, of course, the Princess oi Wales will preside, involves the
question oi Lady Warwick's being
(uiked to any uf these festivities. One
clusely attached tu tiie cuurt is my
authority fur saying thut the lovely
Countess oi Warwick will not lie invited cither to tlio wedding of Princess Alaud or tlio garden parties at
Buckingham Palace that are to be
given during the week oi tlie wedding.
Uf course, the mother of a bride usually has
us to who should be invited tu lier
daughter's wedding, and in tlie present instance 1 am told that the Princess oi Wales 1ms availed heraelf oi all
her prerogatives. The Queen dislikes
ull court scandals and social difficulties, uud has endeavored to persuade
the Princess of Wales to cast aside all
differences ou this particular occasion,
but ull tu uu avail, it ia said. The usually amiable Princess Alexandra is
very firm where tlie Countess oi Warwick ls in question. Indeed, the Princess oi Wales Ls in nmiiy other respeots
vory "difficile" nowadays, and there is
a story now ufluat, based upon pretty
accurate authority, lis tu tlio anxiety
a certain cuminunder on ono oi tlie
royal yachts recently endured during
a cruise the Princess oi Wales made
in company with lier dau;;liters, in
the Mediterranean, in English naval
circles tho story Is quite openly discussed, aad ulsu tiie fact that the
commander ul tlio yacht in question
is known Lu huvo stau.*d that under
nu c.icunistauces could he cm r again
accept the responsibility uf commanding uno ol tho royal yachts that had
lur a passenger tin' Princess oi Wales
unless aocouipauled by Home .male
members oi tin* royal family, 'ihe
mental   condition oi tlie Princess ot
Wales lias long been one that It'Was
loured would sumo day cause u. i* [am*
i;y surloud anxiety, us it was thought
��� uut ut all unlikely that sho might tol*
low in tlio footsteps ol her younger
sister, tlie Princess Thyra oi Denmark,
who married the Duke oi Cumberland.
01 courso, lor some  Lime after the
deuth   of   tlio Duke ol Clarence, mo
'   friends ol  the Princess    were afraid
that she would   really  lose her reason, but fur the last your ur two, und
particularly since the   announcement
uf tho Prinoess Maud's  betrothal tu
tlio Princess of Wales' nephew,     the
famous iur iur gradousness and uiniu-
to bo more like her old gracious, self,
and   lias  appeared    at     mure  public
functions than   sho has    frequented
since the deatli of her   favorite sun.
The  Princess of Wales lias lung been
ever popular Alexandra has    seemed'
liility, but, liku su muny amiable peo-
ple, slio is inure . tenacious in     lier
dislikes than many other hotly tempered persons    would be.     It    Is uo
secret thut even the Queen has over
and  over again urged  tlie Princo of
"Walts' lovely consort to sink all fcef- I
Ing of annoyance or differences where I
tlie Countess of "Warwick was concerned. It was also tlio Queen's desire that her daughter-in-law should
not allow Marlborough Huuso douiea-
tie matters to become a theme of vulgar discussion anioug tiie lesser per-
sonages In London society. But jealousy knows no distinction of persons,
and a. royal'princess is Just as apt
tn carry in her bosum outraged feel-
lags of Jealous affection as the poorest and plainest littio kitchen maid.
It   ls
perhaps, but there are a good ninny
truths that are frequently unpleasant.
Tho Prinoess of Wales is frankly and
positively opposed    to her  husband a
friendship with Lord and Lady Warwick, aad 1   fancy tlio Prince is not
the most comfortable royal husband
lu England nt times on this account.
To bu   sure, ho   accepts Lady Warwick's Invitations tu Warwick Castle,
and also tu her  Essex Inline, Euston
Hall, fur  brief visits,    during which
there Is always a plausible excuse for
his presence hi   tho   way   of cornerstone laying, opening of alius-huuses,
or tho reviewing of    volunteer regiments, ir not some of the many other
charitable     organizations  In     which
Lady Warwick takes sueh a lively Interest.     Eor that matter,  both her
sister, the Duchess of Sutherland, uud
her still   youthful-looking nnd  loving
mother, tlio   Dowager    Countess of
Rosslyn. are as mueh given tu benefiting tlieir less exalted fellow-creatures
as Lady Warwick, which has caused
some people In tlieir own condition in
life tu think they are, as a family,
extremely eccentric,   Lady Warwick's
brother, the young Earl  uf RoSBtyn,
ls looked upon aa   being   something
more than eccentric���especially  when
he announced Ids intention some time
ago uf adopting the theatrical   profession seriously as a  future career.
It was the Duke of Sutherland who
took it upon himself not long ago to
nip in the bud another laiuily scandel
affecting   those near to his hearthstone, idle gossips declared that the
Earl of Warwick intended to bring a
suit against the Prince of Wales for
heavy damages for alienating   Lady
Warwick's affections from their   due
lord and master, but that the Duke
of Sutherland    determined that     uo
such suit ahouhl he mado public, had
tlio whole affair  quietly settled and
hushed up. Tliis may or may uot be
true.  For my  owu  part  I  doubt if
there is one word of truth in tho matter, in  spite of  tho fact that It   is
tlie tit bit of court gossip in  smart
London society  to-day.
That the Prince oi Wales has long
been un admirer oi Lady Warwick is
true without doubt, but it is equally
truo that ho has been as warm an
admirer of a number of other prominent ladies in the best English society. Lady Warwick is beautiful, vivacious and exceptionally intelligent
and accomplished, and she is credited with entertaining successfully
the mast brilliant house parties In
England. Since lier reign as chatelaine ut Warwick Castle there have
been improvement-:, repairs and alterations in the famous historical castlo that have boon completed solely
by Lady Warwick, whose owu private Income, inheritance from her
grandfather, equals that of a many-
times millionaire. Tlie knowledge of
her wealth and her lavish expenditures undoubtedly gave rise to a
story the society gossips were fond
of telling a few seasons ago. Ouo day
Lord Brooke (he had not then inherited tlie Warwick earldom), In a fit
of temper, declared to his charming
Wile hLs Intention to seek a separa-
ouo's consort, although the daughter of a Iviug and the wife of a prospective one, chooses to descend to
anything so commonplace and vulgar
as petty Jealousy, It is hardly in the
naturo of ordinary circumstances that
the object of such a Jealousy should
also stoop to retaliate ln any more
forcible manner than that which
Lady Warwick lias chosen to pursue
Naturally, she insisted upon going to
one of the recent drawing rooms, as
a right duo to an English peeress of
her rank and position, and naturally
site withdrew her name Trom tho list
of presentations that were to lie
made ln tho Queen's name and placo,
tu tile PrlnoSBS of Wales. Possibly
Lady Warwick's friends advised lier
to take such a course, but whatever
tlio causo may have been, upon ono
point Lady Warwick's frlomls nil
agree, and that ts that she ls in*

Supposed to Have Been Heard Firat In
Exultation Over Pain.
.Titst as the hoof nf the horse is tlio
remnant of an original five toes; Just
as tho pineal    gland In man is now
said to bo tho survival of  a prehistoric eye on tho top of tlie head, so.
perhaps, this levity in regard to particular aliments (in   others) may  bo
tho descendant of an aboriginal ferocity la    man.     It is a    well-known
theory    that   what we   call humor
arose from the same source; that the
first human laugh    that ever awoke
the   astonished     echoes     nf gloomy
primeval  forests was not au expression of mirth, but exultation over tho
misery of a tortured enemy.   Tliere is
to    this   day   something   terrible   in
laughter.  The laugh of madness or of
cruelty is a snuu.l more   awful   than
that of the   bitterest    lamentations.
By means of that strange phonograph
that we call literature we can listen
even now tn tlie laughter nf the dead ;
to the hearty guffaws and cynical titterings of generation after generation
of bygone men and women, and if we
are curious in   such matters wo  can
prolie into the nature nf the changes
that have passed over the  fashion nf
men's huuiur.    For it lias beea said,
not without tlie  support nf   weighty
cumulative evidence, that, as we penetrate further into tlie past, we find
tile sense of humor depending always
more obviously an.l   solely upon  tho
enjoyment    of    the pain,  misfortune,
mortification and  embarrassment of
others.  Tiie sense of superiority   was
tlie sense of humor in our ancestors,
or in other words, vanity lay ut  the
root of this, as of most other attributes of oar bumptious species I
Putting ear to our phonograph, we
catch the echoes of a strange and
merry tumult; boisterous, cruel, often
brutal, yet with here and thore a tender cadence from solitary voice, and
presently this lonely unto grows
stronger and sweeter, as we travel
slowly toward our own time, until at
length, through all the merriment, we
can hear the snft uuderinurmur nf
pity. Does tho picture nnt seine tlte
imagination���the long laughter nf the
ages whicli begins in cruelty and ends
in love ?
"Very well," sweetly replied Lady
Brooke. " 1 am quite agreeable, but
how will ynu live, iny dear Brooke,

Nu doubt Lord Brooke thought over

apparently now enjoying tlio most
mild aad peaceful domestic existence

that has induced Lady Warwick to

Tho wholesale price of milk is very
near thu lowest possible cost of production, if tho milkman is uot exceedingly careful, the cost will exceed the
price. Cow beef Is uever in brisk de-

There is nu profit in pour butter,

Before giving up the farm fur an

his houso rent and his table, supplies
without deducting them from the
profits of his business. The business
mau is no better off who Is making
twice as much.
Tlio chnnci��s ol failure in almost

Never let them go back or even bome

One day she laid : " Why did not

" But 1 don't think bo. Vou are

She did not answer. Claude continued sadly. " You never talk to me

She stretched out her hand to him.
" We must learn to love each other
without talking," she said, " lor we

Night came on after a long twilight ; a warm, bright night. Claude
went to bed. "Manette eat by the
window. Above the dark luunel,
formed by the narrow, street with
its tall bouses, Bhe looked up at a
morsel oi blue sky studded with stara.
Her thoughts bod little in common
with those oi her husband, they could
never think alike, Bhe leared, about
anything. She was bo absorbed that
daylight drew near without her
bsving noticed it, and the chill oi
<iiwu warned her how many long
hours had passed Blnce she sat down
there, The stare grew dim, little
patches of black cloud, the remains
el a storm ln the lar distance, passed
slowly across the reddening sky.
Those who live on the housetops
awake early. The windows ln the garret-rooms along the atreet were being soltly  opened.
All ol a sudden a clang of bells rang
through tbe ellent aix; theu came another and more distant peal, and then
another. They rung out Irom the
thirty churches where thirty sections
held their sittings.
Men roused irom sleep rushed to
tbeir windows. They called across the
street to know what hud happened.
In these dangerous times people
were Irlghtened at anything unusual.
Then all became quiet. A few muttered words only were heard In the
Claude, getting up, was astonished
to find Manette still undressed: "Why
did not you come to bed J" he said.
But he told her the reason Ior the
ringing oi the bells. Many of the
section had decided to march on the
Convention, and demand the dismissal
oiite Committee ol Twelve, which the
Commune disapproved ol, and perhaps
they might go bo far us to insist on
the expulsion of the twenty-two
members who went by the name ol
Claude was making ready to go out.
Manette said to him, mechanically:
" Where are you going 1"
"Ahl" he replied,    laughing, "you
want to hold me back irom my duty
. as you once did, but you were not
the    same    Manette tben that you
are now,"
" No," Bhe replied, " I will not keep
you. Go. But first come here and
kiss me; for I still love you dearly,
my kind, good Claude."
The weather was beautiful. It was
the lirat of June,���the most glorious month ot the waple year. The
tocsin bad ceased ringing, but drums
were beating ln the streets, and
troops were passing. Tbere was
little shouting, but there were
threats, not loud but deep, aud the
clash of pikes and guns. A hoarse
noise seemed to rise la the aistaace
Irom all parts of the city.
Manette reflected that the leaders
ol this host kad grown up to manhood in the Ignorance, vice, and poverty ol the Bqualld quarters ol a
great city. Such men had been called suddenly Into positions ol importance, made rich by the plunder ol
palaces and churches, gorged with
the Bpolls ol the emigres and the
proscribed. The power ol Ule and
death was theirs, Their hand was
against every man.
She bad heard that belore tho Revolution Buscallle, living ln a lilthy
uliey oil the Rue Git-le-Coeur had
made his living by selling roasted
tipples. He had been accustomed to
go along the streets on the Ielt bank
ot tbe Seine, currying his apples Ior
sale in a greut basket on his head.
He was so small thut, as he wulked
thus, nothing could be seen ol him
but his little crooked legs, while
from beneath the basket cume a piping voice crying: " Four sous a
dozen 1"
Now the ex-vender of toast apples
was president ol the Revolutionary
Committee in his section. That day
would probably aggrandize tbe savage
dwarf. Buscallle and his followers
would have everything their own way
before night, and, it 'so, what would
happen next to ber, and Claude, whom
Buscallle probably fancied to be so
happy in each otber ?
And Claude was hoping Cllly would
protect him and his young wile I
Poor Claude I    He little knew.
Well, lor that one day at least the
bells might ring and the drums beat,
but the Citizen Buscallle would have
something more Important to think of

Cezaron. He and hia friends would
have something else to do. for
twenty-four hours at least she need
not fear, .      ���
Was It possible that It wub 6
oclock? Manette lay down upon
her bed at last, and slept until 11.
When she awoke the weather waa
still beautiful. All was quiet ln their
qunrter. Tbe not was around the
Convention, which a few days belore
had moved Its sittings to the Tuller-
les, nnd happily very little could be
heard of It In the Btreet whero she
Manette drcBSed herself slowly, and
discovered us sho did so that Bhe
would have no dlnuer that day, for
Brigette had let all the shops be closed before she started out to do her
marketing. Manette therefore looked round for a book which might
help her to puss the afternoon. She
could not find any book that ehe
liked In Claudes little library, aud
was still searching for one, when
Brigette, with a frightened look,
threw open the door, saying: "The
Citizen Cllly asks leave to see the cltoyenne.'"
Cllly I Manette had not once
thought of him. Why hod she said
to hersell that all tear ol battle was
over for that day? The color lor
a moment faded irom her lace, her
heart seemed to cease beating. But
she recovered horself, and mado ready
to encounter him.
As he entered he offered a tew
vague excuses tor his visit. Manette
looked at him with some surprise. He
wob not the same man. The old ct-
devant had discarded the attire ot a
sans-culotte on the very day which
promised to be that ol the Jacobins
most decisive victory. He wore no
carmagnole; he had eveu dispensed
with the bonnet rouge. His dress was
that ol an ordinary citizen. He wore
a long blue levlte, or loose overcoat,
and black small-clothes. In one hand
he held his blackthorn stick, and ln

A sinister smile was on his lips,
halt hidden by the shadow ot his
enormous nose.
"Cltoyenne Cezaron," he Bold, "I
think you did not expect to Bee me
here to-day."
" I do not remember ever expecting to see yon," she replied. "But
to-day I Bhould have thought that
the allairs ot the nation would have
required your presence. It, however,
you have a few minutes at your disposal ���"
And she pointed to a chair. He
gave a start ol surprise. He remembered that she had kept him standing during his tirst visit. Surely thle
beautltul woman was more favorably disposed towards him. He did
not perceive that her politeness was
mere mockery.
" Cltoyenne," he said, " I thank you
tor reminding me ot my duty."
" Oh 1" Bhe exclaimed, " I am convinced you know your duty well. You
can, as I know, teach duty to others."
" Tou mistake me.    If Citizen Cezaron haB gone to the Convention, ub
I think he haB "
"He went whore everybody else ts
"True. Twenty thousand men
have gone there. There will be forty
thousand before night. What ts the
use of bleating among so many aheep ?
It will end by their being all driven
together into one fold."
Manette gave a little laugh. "And
you would like to be the shepherd to
drive them?"
He Waited a moment before he an-
ewered; tben he said:
"Do you know yon are different
from other women?"
Manette received the compliment
quite gravely.
"I did know It partly," Bhe said.
"You nad told me bo already. I
know also why you think it."
She was indeed not an ordinary
woman, for Cllly saw he did not
Irlgbten her. He understood what
ehe had merely hinted. He made a
quick gesture, and said Bharply: "I
do not ask vou which Bide Citizen
Ceznron fs going to take down yonder."
" The BtrongeBt, you may be sure,"
she said. " He means to follow your
lend, and your Instructions."
"The thing Is, thut it Is not quite
certain which party to-day will prove
the strongest. The Section of the
Battes-dea-Monllns holds out for the
Twenty-Two, who the people are demanding shall be outlawed. The men
ol the section have entrenched themselves In the Garden ol the Palais-
Egallte. It Is rumored that they
hnve oven mounted the white cockade.
Citizen Cezaron does not* I suppose.
Incline to tha white cockade?"
" By no menus does he Incline to
It, Citizen Cllly. I cun answer tor
" Unfortunately, ho favora the Girondists."
" Do you think so ? I never bow
anything of It, and I know hiB inmost thoughts,"
"Those men have led astray many
unreflecting people. But when one
has twenty-tour hours ln which to
curse old Iriends who are deserted by
lortune "
"It Is natural to employ the time
to advantage, and to leel no shame
in doing it. Did you come here to
give me this Iresh piece of advice,
that 1 might repeat it to my husband ?'���
"Llaten to me, cltoyenne."
" I am all attention. 1 even think
I understand."
"To-morrow, or the day after, the
tocsin will again rouse you trora.your
Bleep. The sections will be reorganised."
"And this time there will he no
question ol a sheep-fold,"
" You must know that Hanriot has
been elected general-commandant."
Here the president ol the Revolutionary Committee of the Section du
Faubourg Polssoniere, colleague ol
Buscallle, president ot the Section de
i'Unlte, made a pause.
" I wish you to understand the full
Import of what I am about to say to
you. Citizen Cezaron did not vote tor
" Do you consider that a crime ? I
know what you mean now."
"The whole section knew that he
intrigued tor Rattet."
"Encouraged to act aa he did by
yourself, Citizen Cilly. You told him
that Ratfet wub the man he Bhould
support. Can you have had any object
In concealing from him that Hanriot
wns better?"
"I was not preaent. He did not
Butter himsell to be Influenced by the
events ol the last tew houra."
" I think that your advice trom the
tirst waa a lucre and a trap," cried
Manette, rising. " I have always
mistrusted It. I ought to have
warned him."
The ex-vlscount remained Bitting;
he gavo a Uttle laugh, and shook
back the loose sleeves ot hla levlte,
us It he were conscious ot Ince rut-
ties. The old court noble reappeared tor a moment.
"It was   doubtless your duty   to
huve done bo," he said,   " Oh I pardon me, If ln my turn I remind you
of your duty.    Why did you neglect
that warning?    I can    perceive    a
reason.   Shall we try to discover it?"
Manette tolded her two   beautltul
arms, and looked bim In the face. ,
"Let me hear It," Bhe said.
" It may have been because you care
less tor the Batety of Claude Cezaron
than formerly.    I saw you at   the
Theatre de la Republlque."
"HI had not the pleasure of seeing
you there, Citizen Cllly, I presume it
was because you were concealing
yourself like a spy. I have a great
wieh to tell you that that was not
the conduct of a gentleman."
" Very good," he said, without any
apparent emotion. "But why do you
call to remembrance things that
have passed away ?"
"ThingB you have renounced, you
"Enough. What you say showBtbe
Bpitefulness ot a woman. It la unworthy of you, cltoyenne. Did you
suggest that I was concealing myaelf ? I was at the back oi a baignoire, that was all. It was an
evening of surprises. You were
Irlghtened, and you started when
you heard a certain voice you hoped
never to hear again. Ah I a woman has sometimes to pay the penalty ot being beautltul. You have
awakened sentiments in others besides Buscallle,"
"Be ellent 1" she cried angrily.
"The very glances ot that wretch insulted me."
"It was not his lault, poor devil,
that he tell in love with you. But
you may have inspired in other men
the same sentiments*."
"Do you dare to call the Insolent
desires ot that man sentiments? I
understand now what you mean, Citizen Cllly. Do you dare to come here,
to my own house, and threaten me ?
You mean me to understand that the
life ol my husband Is In your hands.
That I can ransom him. You make
no secret of the price that I must
pay. No, Citizen Cilly, my husband's
head and mine will not be bought
from you at the price you ask for
them 1"
Cllly rose trom his chair. "Yes,"
said he, with brutal trankness. "I
make no concealment. You are beautiful, and I wish to make you mine. It
you accept my offer you may save
two Uves���tor there are two mea dear
to you. When I said, Just now, that
you inspired certain sentiments lu
other men besides Buscallle, I did not
speak only ot myself. I was alluding
to another. I tell you I saw you at
the Theatre de la Republlque. There
was a man beside you lu your hox,
leaning over you, whispering to you.
I saw pleasure lu yuur face.   Between
you and him there Is some secret bond.
It ls natural that now you take less
interest than you did eome weeks ago
In your husband's safety���that you
show less care to keep him out ot danger. He has no longer the tirst place
in your Interest or your alfection."
"Ahl" Bald she pruudly aud scornfully, "so then this is the secret cause
ot my not having put my husband on
his guard that yuu thiuk you have
"Parbleu I���the man wbo could replace Citizen Cezaron in your heart
would be a happy man; II these were
days ln which men had time tur hap-
"Du you know that all you have
been telling me nre lies?" she cried.
"Well���suppose that I am, lust a
little In advance ol the truth,"1 he said,
with that woltlsh laugh which
showed all bis sharp white teeth.
"Possibly you may not know yet
which you love best. But what you
do kuow ls that were your husband
to disappear, you have a lover ready
to replace him."
'CowardI How dare yuuI cried
Manette, putting her hands beiore bor
eyea.   'How dare you I" she repeated.
"What I came here to say to you
to-day was this : that both these men
nre in my power. I can do with them
what I pleuse. To-morrow I could
send Citizen Claude beyond tho barrier."
Manette had dropped Into a chair ;
hut now bIio took her hands nway
from her tace, and he saw that It was
bathed with tears. The wretch, as
he gazed at her, felt a savago joy.
"You aro weeping,"*  he   suid.
"Yea," ehe answered; "but my
toara have extinguished my anger.
Anger can do ao good. 1 might Implore your pity fur my husband, but
to what purpose."*
"And for tho other one?' he Interrupted. " 1 think you would Hk9
best to Implore me for the other man.
"You hnvo told me plainly, Citizen Clllv, what price you nsk tor saving those two lives. Now, you may
The cl-devant, oftended, drew himself up.
" You nre turning me out ot your
house,'- he said.
" But Without words ot anger, she
replied, trying to smile, though her
fnce was wet with tears. " 1 tor-
give you for having come to Insult
me In my own house. You thought
I was a woman who could ba conquered b.v fenr. Yon see your mistake, aud henceforth I trust yau will
1 respect me."*
Cllly put on his hat with Its silk
" Au revoir, cltoyenne.'*
When Manette found herself alone,
she began to walk up and down her
She wrung her hands. The horror
thnt she felt burst forth In one wild
sob: " I shall have killed them both,'*
she said. " Botfly���both will die,
through me!"*
Tho rooms In the uppartement of
tho Lnverdacs that luuked out upun
tho Quay were clesed. . The blinds
were tightly fastened, and the cur-
tutus were drawn. The Cltoyenne
Laverdac lay ou ber white silk sofa
with Its pink embroidery. Four wax
candles burned upon tbe chimney-
piece In silver sconces. Their light
fell oa the amethyst silk draperies,
and tho old gold frames ot the family
portraits. Tho face ot the
councillor seemed ulmost to
have lost Its Bteru expression; the
tolds ol his Bcarlet toga looked aB II
he stirred. The ladles suillod undor
their powdered heads.
These rellCB ol the past looked aB
charming as ever, but that past was ln
point ol time a thing ot yesterday.
It was to be regretted that ln order
to enjoy them It was necessary to
live the lifo of those ehut up ln prison. The least ray of light seen Irom
tbe Btreet, one window incautiously
opened, might have led to fatal consequences bo near tbe Quay. Citizen
Laverdac had therelore lastened up
bis windows as be did every evening, and was walking up and down
hiB salon, the atmosphere ol which
was unbearably hot and close that
summer night. Outside light breezes
rocked the boughs ol tbe trees along
the river, and Ireshness seemed to
blow along tbe Quay.
" Laurent, come here," said his
wile's voice, and Laverduc obeyed her.
Emille made him Bit down beside hor
on the edge ot the sola, and then, sitting up, she threw her arms about
his neck. The slight constraint with
which he submitted to this embrace
did not discourage her. Little Emille
let her pretty head droop on her
husband's shoulder, and began to
bemoan herself:
" What dreadlul evenings we have
now to pass, my poor dear Laurent I
We are shut up In a cage. We used
to go to tbe threatres alter dinner.
Now we do not dare  "
"Yes," Interrupted Laverdac, "all
liberty ls denied us under the present
system. Even fresh air Ib Interdicted
In the name ot liberty. All enjoyment,
even ot fine weather, is Ior the sansculottes."
"It ls all my lault, Laurent. You
were talking ot emigrating two years
ago, you remember. We might then
have gone to Switzerland. Perhaps
we should have met my lather there,
How astonished he would bave been
to Bee us I But I was bo charmed
with the pleasures of parls that you
were then showing me I did not wish
to go away. Oh, dear, I am sorry
tor It now 1 But It Is too late."
"Yes, Indeed, It is too late. You
were speaking ol plays. It seems to
me that we are spectators of a great
drama. Parbleu I it would be a blessing if we could call the actors out
and make them sensible ot our opinion. But we cnunot. The play
may last a good while longer."
"Perhaps we shall none of ub Bee
Its end,"
Here little Emille gave a deep elgh,
loosened her arms Irom ber husband's
neck, and sank buck on her sola cushions,
"Oh, dear 1 how hot It is I" she
Laverdac resumed his walk up und
down the salon.
"The lost are now lirst," he said,
" and these dregs ot society are disgusting. Every man nowadays seems
more or less a coward. II honest men
would but combine to take a stand
and sell their lives dearly I II they
would only attempt to delend tbeir
wives, tbeir mothers, sisters, and
sweethearts���all those that they
love best I But that Is whit they
will not do."
"No," Bali Emille, with o yawn,
" they don't try to, as you say. But
then. alaB I what can they do ? There
ls nothing to be done."!
"That's a mistake," he auswered,
stopping suddenly; " I, lor my part,
see something I could do. I could kill
one ol them."
Emille hall rose, and leaned upon
her elbow.
"Laurent," she said, "what a horrid thought I ABk our uncle, the
councillor up tbere, what he would
say to it."
"Ho was condemning people to
death all his lite," cried Laverdac.
"It wob his duty to see that all men
Bhould have Justice, He would not
think It wrong ol me, I thiuk, to do us
he did."
"Oh! but," said Emille, with a little
careless laugh, "think ol the commandment: Thou shalt do no murder."
"But this would he aa execution���
real, true Justice, You know It would,
Emille. What I have Just said has
made Its way eveu Into your little,
blrd-llko brain."
" Thank you, Laurent. Little Is
the right word Iur such a compliment."'
Laurent turned, came back, sat
duwn lxiBhlo lier un tho edge of tho
sofa  and Bolzed  hor two hands.
t' Tell mo, do you really think It
would lio a crime to kill one of those
whoso trade Ib killing us?'"
" Oh, dear  mo, no I    But you are
talking nonsense, Laurent; and. as I
said Just now, It ls so hot.    I>aurent,
please give me a glnas uf lemunnde.'*
Laverdac rose.
" You have decided it,'* he said.
" Yes, decidedly. I   wish it.    I nm
so thirsty.     What a queer man you
seem this evening.'*
Ho went Into the next room, and
came back a moment nfter, carrying
a glass which wae quite full, ln a
hand that trembled.
She drank Its contents eagerly. He
looked at her with so etrange a fnce
that Bho gave an exclamation of surprise. *
" Oh, whnt a naughty, greedy boy
you are 1"' she cried. " You are quite
angry with mo for liaving drunk up
every single drop.'"
" You nre wrong,"' he said, taking
the eniptv glass from her hand and
setting It on the tabic ; " I am   not
I thirsty."i
He resumed his walk.
'* How  things nro changed !'*    eaid

languid than betore.    " If we had been   .

as we ore now Ah I if we could

mit I npi not sure I onght to say It. *
"Why shouldn't you say anything
to  me,   my darling ?"
"Well, then, Laurent, It   seems to
ine that this time last year you took
more pleasure ln loving me.'*
���Laverdac started.
" And you���are ynu just what you
were   then,   Emilia?'*
"No, I think I nm less trustful.
Don't tell me It Is not bo. I cannot
argue with you Mils evening. ���Laurent, It bociub to mo tliat I um very
sleepy.'' . ,      .
"Why don't ynu go tn lied, then?
I will help  ynu to undress.''
" No; I will go to Bleep Just here. It
will bo something new. Oh. heavens,
there Is bo little that Is new in our
existence I But Bt by me, Laurent.
What will you do while lam asleep?
Don't sit silent, thinking nbout Manette, who ls ao handsome. Oh, I
know you do sometimes."
" I think you must be dreaming, my
child, already."
She only answered hy an Inart'cu*
lato Bound. A moment aftor ahe waa
fast asleep. ,
Laverdac, trying to step 1'ghtly, and
to mako no noise, came and leaned
over the back ot ihe sofa. He looked
at her. Dear creature 1 Ah I very
dear Bhe had been once, bo gentle, so
tender, wben not under the Influence
ot some pang of Jealousy. Oh, It she
oaly knew what terrible cause she had
to be Jealous now I���nad what had he
done only a moment before?
Weill how could he have helped

He shrugged Ills shoulders. No. Indeed ! to administer that sleeping potion was no crime. He went to a
corner near the fireplace, and took hie
sword-eane. A moment after he waa
ln the street.
At a quick pace he passed the College dee Quatrea Nations aud turned
into tbe Rue de So ne. A lamp hung
across the entrance of the Btreet,
creaking upon its cluiln, but the
clfien lamplighter had neglected to
light It.

They came a little suddenly, perhaps they won't stay this time, but they will be here soon for o*0od. Now for fall
clothing. Are you still thinking you must pay big money for tailor-made suits and coats? We have suits in stock that
can't be told from measure-made suits to fit, wear or appearance. Our goods are practically measure made, only we
take a list of all possible measures and then have them made. We are sure your measure is here. Think of saving1

ask for our work���inspection.
