St. Petersburg, June 24J—The Government is about to issue a new loan for the
purpose of building several fortresses and

talv. The Cztr goes out of his way to
snub M. Demarschette, Italian Ambassador, and misses no opportunity for so
doing. At tbe last state ball he purposely
ignored thc ambassador's presence, anil
when the latter placed himself in the
Czar's way and it was impossible to
avoid him, the Czar gave him the coldest
possible greeting.

London, June 24.—In the House ol
Lords to-day the prospects of an European war were freely discussed and the
attention of the Government was called
to thc serious danger to England which
would result if annexation of the Island
of Crete were accomplished by one of
the powers as is reported to be in contemplation. Lord Salisbury itates that
the Government were not unmindful of
the possibilities which might be the outcome of the present state of continental
Europe but he assured their Lordships
that the report that any of the Great
Powers were seriously contemplating the
annexation  of Crete   was  unfounded.
The Rev. James Baton preached a
very eloquent and forcible sermon lo a
fairly large congregation last Sunday
evening.
The rev. gentleman will possibly make
his home in Nanaimo should he succeed
in getting together a congregation. Mrs.
Baton presided at the organ and led the
singing.
The sermon was preached on thc seven
words from the cross in their order as
follows: 211 c. Luke, 38 v. For thev
know not what they do. From which
the value of Christ's intercessory work
waB Bbown to bave rested In the blood.
He bad never been known lo pray for
the forgiveness of sinners before.
Secondly 43 v. of the same chapter wns
expounded ou, viz: To-day shalt thou
be with me in Paradise. The preacher
endeavored here to show the willingness
and power of Christ to forgive sin, as
directly after praying for the forgiveness
of sinners he gave assurance to the dying
thief of his forgiveness and acceptance,
Thirdly turning to Matthew L'7 c. 4(1 v.
the word's My God! My God! whv bust
thou forsaken mo? from which was
shown the depth of sorrow to w liich Ihe
Saviour was reduced in orderlhalsinners
might be forgiven.
Fourthly John 19, 20 and 20 vs. The
words being to bis mother "Woman behold thy son" and to the disciple John
"son, behold thy mother from whieh the
preacher sought"to show the care of tlie
Saviour for Ina Buffering disciples in ihe
world.
Fifthly, be referred lo the 28th verse
of the chapter alluding to the words "I
thirst," from which the Saviour's power
to sympathize with his suffering people
as he himself bad thirsted when under
the most excrutialing pain.
Sixthly, in the words " It is finished,"
tbe preacher showed how the work of redemption had been completed or -was n
finished work.
Seventhly, the words "Father into thy
hands I commend my spirit," were used
to indicate that through the means oi the
finished work of Christ God's saints had
been enabled to commend their spirits to
their great Father when about to die.

FIHIll   SCHOOL,   EXAltHNATIONS.
The following is a list of the successful
pupils of the Nanaimo Public Schools
who have succeeded in passing the
examination whieh allows them to pass
into the High School Division. The subjoined list will speak for itself and will
silently endorse the hearty congratulations which we proffer to Mr. John Shaw
on the very marked success whicli haB se
constantly'attended his efforts to advance
his pupils in their scholastic studies.
When Mr. Shaw assumed his present responsible post the High School was fast
being "starved out" for want of material
upon which to work. Since that time,
however, matters have changed somewhat, the change being satisfactory and
creditable alike to both pupils and master—for unless the material is present
upon which to work.the ablest teacher in
the world would waste his or her abilities
"on the desert air," a fact which accounts
for the single pupil who has passed from
Miss Gardiner's control; the lady principal of the Nanaimo Girls' School having
long been distinguished for the marked
ability and success which has invariably
attended her career as a teacher.

Mr. 11, l>. Helmcken's prize for a Poem
on Justice, to be competed for by all the
schools in the Province, haB lieen awarded to Miss Marion Gordon, daughter of
D. W. Gordon, Esq., M. P., of this city.
Misb Gordon's Essay on Education and
its Benefits received special mention at
the same competition.. We congratulate
this talented young lady on the honor she
brought to thiB city and to the school.
Subjoined we give the poeai:
JUSTICE.
"With what measure ye mete, it shall
be measured tn you again."
" In the course of Justice we should not
see
Salvation; we tlo for mercy plead."
So speaks the lady fair, as at the liench
she stands,
To save her husband   from   Shylock's
greed.
If in this life uncertain, undefined,
Some Portia for ua all could plead,
The world for us would be less rough,
Harm conld not come from unjust deed,
On earth, as in Heaven, the accused are
judged,
By those who most worthy are;
The judge  decides  at  he thinks God
would,
But his wisdom is less by far.
Above this world so full of trials,
The God of man doth reign.
Before Him on the Judgment Day
The judge and judged he will arraign,
And if, on that day which may come
soon,
Wo would for justice crave—
We must give mercy to our fellow-men,
If we would seek it bevond the grave.
Mak'iif a   Hog   Happy, and   Dow   It  ltfl-
sulted.   "'
Wa wero sitting In (rout of Taylor's grocery on a summer day, when a big black hog
came nosing along the gutter anil started a
new train of thought. In tho crowd of
loungers was a mau from Sr. Louis, and,
after watching tha porker for a while, ho remarked:
"I wonder if that hog ever had a real good
time In all bis life?"
"Hogs alius have good times, I guess," re-
marked the village cooper, who had knocked
off work and come over to hear some politics.
"I doubt it," said tho other "He must feel
his degraded position in life, nnd so he cannot
be happy, f wish 1 could do something to
make bim feel that life is worth the living."
"Past man I ever saw who pitied a hog!"
grunted the blacksmith, who ought to have
been tacking a shoe on a waiting mule.
"Yes, I do pity him. I'vo been down myself and know how it is. Taylor, havo you
got any cherry whisky'"
"Mighty little, if anv Moro cherries than
whisky, I guess."
"If you've got two quarts of cherries
which have been lu liquor, bring 'em out,
and I'll give you half a dollar. I'm going to
make tbat hog happy for two hours."
The grocer got the cherries, which had.
been lying tn liquor for a couple of years,
and tho St. Louis man poured them out into
the gutter for the hog. They wero dovoured
with astonishing avidity, and tho porker
stood and looked at us and hungered for
more, ft was doubted by some if tho liquor
would affect him, but after a fow minutes he
began to frisk and play, nud was evidently
under the influence.
"That doos me good," said tho donor of the
cherries. "He is becoming light hearted, and
life will now tako ou new charms to him.
Hang a man who won't give a hog n show I"
Just tben the animal uttered a hoarse
"woofl" and charged for the crowd. We
scattered and he entered the grocery, took
two or three turns, and shot out and down
the street. Esquire Smith was coining up,
end ths hog charged and upset hiui. He then
headed for a horse and buggy in front of
Snyder's, crashed against the horse's hind
legs and in another moment thero was a runaway. The widow Watkins was sailing along
with a can of kerosene in her hand, and the
hog rolled her off tho walk as if sho had been
struck by a locomotive. Ho theu charged n
double team and started them off, dovo into
Qaylord's dry goods store and out, and the
old man Sabln turned in from Elm street just
in time to be lifted three feet high anil rolled
Into a puddle.
Fifty men were out and after the porker
by this time, but bo started another runaway, upset a baby carriage, nud knocked thi
register of deeds off his pins before wo cornered htm and got a rope around a hind leg.
Then everybody wns mnd and wnnted vengeance, but when they camo tolook for tho St.
Louis man ho had skipped. He, however,
left a message for the public, sny ing to a hor
who had shinned up an awning post to bo out
of danger.-
"My son, if you haveu't adopted a iiiottc
yet, let mo throw out ono for your digestion.
It is: 'Give everything n fair show.'"—Now

issue which convinced officials il could be.

Cronin was tried in February by the inner circle of Camp 20, John' !■'. Beggs,
presiding, found guilty of beings Brinish
spy and sentenced to death. Instead of
culling for

lots were drawn, the name of every mun
present lieing written on slips of paper.
Tbe names of those selected were not
made known at tho meeting. The only
one of the participants who bad definite'
knowledge on this point was the man
whose duty it became lo notify those
upon whom the choice had fallen. This
man according to the letter is John F.
Beggs. The States Attorney is
moving heaven and earth to
night to discover the writer, and
is willing to promise him immunity and
ample protection if he will come forward.
The < Iraki! .Jury this afternoon suddenly
took up file Cronin case and issued aii
order fof' Begg's appearance. The officers seafcieddor him hut he could not
be found. Later the States Attorney
went before Jitdgp Shepherd anil

out the price of the second hand hose

Aid. Abrams said that under the circumstances he did not think it was right
to open Craig's tender.
Aid. Nightingale said it was Craie's
own fault, he Bhould have sealed it up."
Aid. Mahrer did not think he cared
much about thc tender.
Aid. Hilbert—Let the committee have
B week further to report in. We went
to see Craig and be told us his tender
was the very, very lowest price he could
put in and then in the same breath said
he would 6end in another tender.
Aid. Nightingale said it would be a
hard thing to construct a hose cart with
no specifications, only a drawing.
Aid. Hilbert — Renwick A Home

it was I '4 inches Bte'el.
Aid. Baker wished to know if a second

POLITICAL  YAHOOS.
The unbiassed mind which has laken
a healthy interest in the course of Imperial politics during the last three ir
four years, can well afford to smile—i.e. if
the mind can ever be said to smile—when
men such as Mr. Laboucheee take the
trouble to cable the so-called news !in their
London letters lo this side of the Atlantic
—that Lord Haktington with his compact following of Liberal-Unionists is
Bur-1 practically on his, bended knees  to  Pah

neli,, Gladstone A Co. Surely the
radical member for Northampton leaves
out of his calculations the fact tbat a large
proportion of the persons on this continent were born and reared in Great Britain, and consequently know some little
as to lhe probability or otherwise of the
truth of such "cablegrams" as we are
from time to time favored with.   To re-
sow,  reap, and grind  tlie grain  net es-
sary to sustain life while on the  march I milu' people of what Ihey said on former

From our London cable  letter ol yesterday we learn that a "Grand Universal
Peace Congress" will begin to-day, and
it is expected to last through the week,
To this Congress representatives of peace
societies throughout the world have been
invited. The conference is to he held in
Paris, and is to consist oi various members of Parliament wlio were charged
with that duty al the last meeting.
Every well-wisher of tlieir kind will
drink to their success (though the drinking be in Nature's wine) for all admit the
fearful evils of war; and yet we fear that
the ultimate decision of really great
questions of National interest will continue to lie in the future, as in the past,
settled by force of arms instead of, as
these peace representatives would have
it, by arbitration. Small matters we
grunt, such as fishery disputes and the
seizure of sealing schooners might easily
be arranged with satisfaction to all concerned by a court of arbitration, but
countries that really mean fighting do
not talk about what they arc going to do
beforehand, but do it with all possible
dispatch and secrecy, ao we would
ask of whal use would be
the arbitration in tlie event of
for instance, Russia determining to throw
an army into India by way of the Kyber
Pass? Or of what use would be thc members of the Peace Conference if Germany
decided that another slice of the French
Rhine-lands was required to give them a
strategic frontier? Once more we express the opinion, that like the "Imperial Confederation of Great Britain and
her Colonics," this arbitration scheme is
more or less chimerical, however much
to he desired. Nor lias such arbitration
as we have already experienced been altogether of a reassuring nature. Why
is tho chief part of the Alabama award
to-day stored' in the National vaults at
Washington'.' No claimants, we are
answered. Again, when Emperor William decided that San Juan should be
American rather than British, there were
those who would have much preferred
that the I'nited States should have been
told to lake it if they could. Force is,
an<l should be, the last resort of disputants—whether individual or collective,
but we may rest assured that the Billion
that believes it Is the stronger and
has a cause of quarrel, will not accept arbitration when il can gain its polul by
going lo war.

THE PADRE'S CATS.
Padre Mateo Verdugo was the venerable priest in charge of an Indian mission
near Ibo coast of California. Tbo mission
Is now a majestic ruin, and tlio raco for
whoso regeneration it was founded ia
Hearing extinction; but sixty years ago
Padre Mateo was tbo busiest man in tbo
world. Thero wero tho massivo structures of ndobo to bo eroded, neophytes to
instinct nud discipline, infants lo baptize, hordes of hungry Indians to feed
und funeral services to preach, for beforo ibo benighted savages could bo
brought lo understand tbnt tbo mission
was being established for tbo saving ot
tbeir souls tbey had sent many a Christian   to join  the army  of   tho blessed
martyrs,
lint when, after ten years of toil, the
buildings wero completed, nnd tbo last
martyrs wero buried, and tho infants
wero all regenerated, and tbo Indians
wero pacified by gifls of trinkets and
clothes, time began to weigh rather
heavily upon the zealous padre. He
lengthened tho services and sang muss
every day and performed al! tho ceremonies of tlio eburcb witb scrupulous
exactness; ho provided the mission with
cattle nnd sheep, and taught tbo Indians
to sow grain and to labor witb tools, yet
thero wero long hours left unoccupied
and tho priest was often lonely.
After tbo soldiers wero removed to a i
younger mission the padre's parishioners, | ' ''!!,e,s_
witb the exception of Gaudaloupe Cor-
leo: tho ancient sacri -tan, were all In-
diann. Now, Gaudaloupo, it must be
confessed, made bul ;i poor companion;
for, ins work being done, be straightway
stretched his hull; b»dy upon n bench between the great arches at the sHimy sido
of tho building and went to si *op.
Years passed awav The mission prospered. Tho harvest of souls was bountiful, and whero once bad been an unbroken solitude now uprose a picturesque
Indian village, with houses built of reeds
or of adobe, and tho winding streets all
leading up to the great gray pile on tho
hill.
One morning, while tho sacristan slept
on his bench, Padre Mateo sat outside his
iloor with a big book on bis knees.
The rugged mountains wero veiled in
miles of blue mist, but their snowy crests
shone in the sunlight. Upon the velvety
slopes of tho foothills grazed cattlo and
ahcep. Tho wide, fertile valley was
bathed in golden light. Far off—a silver
line—gleamed tho Pacific ocean. Tho
village streets were deserted. Save tlio
droning of insects and the regular respirations of the dozing sacristan, not a
sound broke Iho stillness.
Tbo padre bad almost fallen asleep,
when, hearing tho patter of baro feet, ho
looked up to see some dark skinned boys
carrying a litter of kittens toward tho
creek.
"Quel Quel'' cried tlio padre, rubbing
his eyes.   "Adonda vaV?   Would you
destroy the poor kittens?"
"Si, padre," replied ouo littlo Indian.
'Para que?" questioned tbo priest.
'They arc too many, padre," answered
tbe little Indian, poking his great too in
tho dust and  looking longingly toward
tho creek,
"But wait! Tbo pretty thingsl They
bavo not yet beheld tho light of day.
(livo them to rael" cried tho benignant
priest. "They shall not perish, for I will
caro for them myself. Aro thoy not
pretty, my worthy Uaudaloupe? Open
thino eyes for nn instant. Seel are they
not pretty?"
Surely, had tho sacristan foreseen tho
consequences, ho would bavo made re-
■nonstranco then, beforo the padro's passion strengthened; but, being sleepy nud
selfish, Gaudaloupo only chuckled as bo
settled himself for another nap, thinking, "Now that tho reverend padre has
somewhat to amuso liim, perchanco I
may bo permitted to dozo in peace."
Ono of tho inconveniences arising
from tho adoption of a family of cats is
the manner in which it is prone to increase. At (ho end of tho second year
Padre Mateo's cats wero tbo bano of tbe
sacristan's life. Every day tho priest
found it necessary to reprove Gaudaloupo
for some sad dereliction. Either ho bad not
bathed Celestine's soro eye, or tho dose
of catnip tea for Antonio had been neglected, or Christafus had beeu allowed
lo scamper off beforo breakfast—for, bo
it understood, each cat bad a high sounding name, and a placo at tbo padre's
table, and regularly partook of a repast
three times a day.
Had Gaudaloupo not so highly venerated Ibo padre's sacred calling, there
would surely havo been nn open rebellion; as it was, tho sacristan had to con-
lent himself with thinking bis indignation.
'Must I," thought ho, with rising
spleen, "I, whoam 70 years old aud have
a stitch in my back—must I, besides
dusting tbo altar and ringing four heavy
bells and 'tending tho padre's houso—
1 do obedience to an army of yowling
cats?   Es vergonzoso, Indeed!"
Had ho not feared the padre's malediction lie would havo murdered tho
creatures without compunction. Ho even
gavo up his morning nap, sitting with
his littlo red eyes open and a scowl on
his wrinkled, yellow faco, whilo ho tried
to devise a means of ridding the world
of tlio pests, In vain be pondered. The
cats nourished, and tho padre's fondness
increased, and Gaudaloupo was scolded
moro frequently than over. "Heart of
stone!" tho priest would exclaim.
"Would you let tbem starve? I am sure
you gavo no milk to Carmina's new kittens this day I and well you know she has
not nourishment enough for them all!
You shall do penance for your iniquities!"

'Will, your excellency," the sacristan
would remonstrate with great humility,
"I had no milk left afler supplying the
sick babe of tho squaw who died last
week.    Surely tho kittens can wait."
■Wait?" stormed thc padre. "Are (be)
not wailing from hunger even now? Then
cries pierce my heart! How can I leave
them to your charge and go away for
eight long days—and go I must!—knowing that tbey will not bo fed?"
At llieso words hope sprang up anew
In Gaudaloupc's perfidious heart.
"Art thou going away, reverend padre?" lie asked, meekly. "Am I, indeed
to bo left alone for eight long days?"
"It is true," replied lhe priest, sadly
"I must go. I am summoned to report
to my superior at San I.uis Poy; and the
journey will require eight days Bul
how can I go? The Indians can get nlong
well enough, to bo sure, but what, I ask
you, heart of wood, what will become of
my cats?"
So Gaudaloupo promised earnestly to
attend to all their wants, to call them
regularly to their meals, to administer lo
the ailing ones their allotted spoonsful of
herb tea, and to endeavor to sohico nnd
cheer them during lhe absence of lhe
priest. Next day, as Padre Mateo trudged slowly down Li*"*road, a sardonic
smile came upon the countenance of the
wioked sacristan. As the padre's portly
figure diminished in the distance, Gaudaloupo, forgettiug the Btitoil in his back
and the ache in Ins hones, skipped nimbly into tbo bouse ami began preparations to carry out bis evil designs.
It was Hearing midday. Already Ignatius, the oldest and leanest and bun
K riest of tho cats, bod appeared, sniffing,
11. he entered the kitchen, to learn if dinner was being cooked.
I will teach thee, villain!" muttered
ihe sacristan, fiercely, as ho busied himself building a lire. "I will teach thee
lo sit and glower ut mo while I work (ill
rny body shakes witli weariness!"
When tbo meal was ready Gaudaloupo
went to tlio door. "Como, Cnrloltn,
Come, my Pedro! Come, Carlos!" he called, tenderly. "Hasten within,
for thy dinner waits! He quick, then;
.<SH of youl"
Wben (ho cats were seated, and waiting, as usual, for Padre Mateo to take
Ins placo and pronounce the benediction,
Uaudaloupe, after tightly closing the
doors, hurried to tlie chapel. From tho
altar iio selected tho largest crucifix,
and, hearing Ihis in lhe left baud, and a
great whip behind him iu his right hand,
ho returned to the padre's bouse.
Holding the crucifix before bim, the
sacristan entered tho room whero (ho
cats wero assembled. "Now wretches]
brutes! villains!" lie shouted—and at
eaoh word came u cut from tho whip—
"fiends! monsters! ungrateful heasts!
Receive your punishment!"
Tho astonished creatures leaped from
their seats and loro madly about the littlo room, but thoy could not get beyond i
tho reach of Uaudaloupe's  whip.     He
lashed  right and  left, still  holding tlio .
crucifix before him, lill at last ho could '■
no longer wield the heavy whip.
"Enough for (his time!" be panted,
throwing open the door. "Now, creatures of evil, depart!" and aa tlio last cat ;
disappeared tho sacristan dropped his j
whip in n corner, assumed a devout expression nud carried the crucifix back to
its placo on Iho altar.
Thrice each day a similar sccuo was
enacted. The cats wero called tenderly
by name, arranged in their respective
places and generously served to a savory
repast, only to seo tho sacristan appear,
bearing tho crucifix aloft in tho left
hand and tho whip behind liim in the
right—till at the sightof tho crucifix the
creatures would spring wildly from their
seats and seek to escape.
Padre Mateo returned at night and
was welcomed cordially by tho perfidious sacristan. In tlio morning, when
tbo breakfast was ready, Gaudaloupo
called the padre to the meal.
"But—where aro tbo cats?" asked
Padre Mateo, upon seeing tlieir sents
unoccupied.
Gaudaloupo   shrugged   his  shoulders
witli a look of sadness as ho repliedi
"Speak not of them, reverend padre!"
"But I want my cats!"
'Your  excellence—I fear  you  havo
been befooled."
"Whero aro my cats?"
"Well, then, I will call them, venerable padre; but first let mo speak.   I fear
the creatures aro not mero common cats,
else why did they conduct themselves so
strangely In your absence?"
"Nonsense!" roared tho padre. "Of
what do you speak?   Call my cats!"
"But wait, your reverence. As your
reverence knows, it is my duty always,
of a Thursday, to clean tbo candlesticks
and tho sacred crucifixes on tbo altar.
Your reverence well remembers that it is
my custom always to bring them outside
into tho nir that the dust may not soil
tho altar cloth. What will your reverence think wben I reveal tho wickedness
of your reverence's cats? They are all
dovils, surely, elso wby should thoy run
from tbo crucifix, as tho evil ouo would
(loo from tbo presence of tho Virgin?"
"Nonsense!" roared the padre. "Call
mv cats!"
So the sacristan did as bo was bid.
"Now," said PadroMateo, triumphantly, when all tbo cats were seated about
tho table, "wo will test Ibis thing! Bring
in the crucifixl"
Without a word tlie wicked sacristan
flow to tho chapel, and, returning, entered llio priest's room holding llio sacred
emblem aloft beforo him. At its appearanco tho unhappy cats gavo a discordant howl of rngo and despair, and
(led, as spirits of evil (lco from tho presence of the Virgin.
As tho last swollen tail disappeared tho
padro gavo a gasp and caught tho sacristan's arm for support.
Thero was an interval of ominous
silence, and tho venerable priest's countenance was agitated by conflicting emotions.

ROBERT WARD,
Wharf Streot,
my]2 2tl Vicioria, B.C.
During tbe flrst term of his consulship,
when Napoleon was unlimited master of
tho state which yet bore the name of
republic. Josephine lived at her Castle
Malmaison, where every evening Napoleon came to visit her.
One day she was dining quite alone at
Malmaison, and while the dessert was
being served a man was admitted. He
was about 50 yeara old. While jugglers
aud magicians bave a lively appearance,
this man's features were deeply earnest.
He carried a little table, which he placed
before Josephine, and covered it witb a
worn cloth. After lhese preparations
ho drew out three tin cups, with which
he executed all kinds of jugglery. The
balls quadrupled themselves under his
lingers anil formed all kinds of figures
and grotesque forms, only to disappear
again in a twinkling, Like tbo musical
composers, the magician also has hi-
overture before be unfolds the panorama
to the eyes of the audience. After this
ho touched tho magic cups with a stick
of ebony antl said: "Madame, you may
express any wish and it shall bo fulfilled.
I regret very much that you havo finished your meal, elso 1 could have
, brought you dishes which were wanting
on your tablo today—the red feather ol
the Mediterranean, sardines of Royan oi
tho liltlo silver fish caught in tho vicinity
in which madam was borne—for thegreal
welfare of France. Madame, you may
order whatever your heart wishes. Do
you wish a spotless diamond or u grass
liy on tho heather, an Oriental ruby or a
nightingale?" This man, who placed all
the wealth of nature at Josephine's disposal, seemed to wish that sho might decide upon the nightingale, for be put his
ear to tlie cup and it almost seemed as if
bo heard tho melting tones of tho singei
of spring. Josephine.
however, were modest, and who pre-
: (erred a hunch of flowers to a diamond,
■ selected neither a diamond nor a ruby
nor a nightingale, but a roso. She had
scarcely spoken tlie word when the juggler upset Ibo cup and showed the aston-
i ished lookers on a rose, which bent
gracefully on its stein and filled tbo room
wilb sweet fragrance.
"My goodness," said Josephine, "you
have cut the prettiest rose in our conser-
• vatory, (he rose which I intended giving
Bonaparte   to-morrow.    It would have
unfolded during tbo night."
"Beg pardon, madame," replied the
juggler politely, "this rose belongs tc
me and I bavo tbe honor to present it tc
llio wife of the lirst consul; I would
i never dare to touch her flowers and 1
have never been in her conservatory."
Josephine sent a servant to investigate
tho truth of this assertion and was told
that tho rose which was destined for the
first consul was unhurt, Incredulous
as a Creole she could not hide her admiration, and, in fact, it was impossible
to embarrass tho man who was so entertaining and wonder creating. He magically drew out of bis pocket a swarm ol
singing birds which picked up the
crumbs; then ho filled a tumbler with
water aud as quickly as ho would upscl
it numberless (lowers flowed upou tiu
persons around, and Josephine imagined
herself in her conservatory.
When tho wonders had reached theii
highest degree Josephine reached for the
pompadour, which was hanging on hei
armchair, in order to give some gold
pieces to Ibo juggler. When tho juggle)
noticed this ho fell down at her feet, say
ing: "Madame, you can reward me a
hundred times for this little pleasure thai
I havo given you, but not in money—a
mercy, inadamc, a mercy."
"Which?" sho asked.
The wonderful man begged her then
to eat one of tho apples which were on
her table. Josephine stretched out hei
band for one and placed her knife on it
with the determination of a woman pre
pared for a surprise. Mother Eve Burely
did not reach for tho apple with such
longing which caused such misery to hei
descendants as Josephine. She cut
through the apple and found inside a petition to the first consul.
"Madame," said the juggler, "before
you is an unlucky one, who has mixed
in the quarrels of tho kings, and has
taken part in tho wars against the republic. I have fought in the Vendee with a
Cocarde, which is no more that of my
country, aud when tho party which 1
served was defeated I took flight, to live
in a strange land. My country drove mc
out as a traitor. Branded liko Cain, I
wandered about; my namo is crossed
from the list of citizens and put on the
emigrant roll. A word from your lips,
madame, can make a Frenchman of me
again and give mo back to my own.
You, tho adored wife of the flrst consul,
havo tho power to give me baok to my
country and to my own."
"Sir," she said to tho emigrant, "I will
do as you wish. Tho oonsul shall read
your petition and I assure you that I will
do everything I can in your favor."
The juggler arose, put his cups intobii
pocket, his table under his arm, bowed
deeply and disappeared.
Josephine, inclined to bo superstitious,
could not seo tho enemy of her husband
in this juggler. She believed in hit
magical power, which would be of use
to tho emperor, and made up ber miud
to uso all influence in ber power with
Napoleon to intercede for this man. The
following morning at 6 o'clock Bonaparte
breakfasted in the dining room of tbe
Palace Malmaison; they were getting bii
carriage ready in the court yard of the
palace when Josephine entered.
"What did you do yesterday, dear
Josephine?" asked Bonaparte. "Who has
visited you?"
"I have been well entertained; if you
will dine with me today I have a pleasant surprise in store for you. Which reminds me, do have tbls name crossed
from the emigrant list." With these
words she handed him the petition ot the
magician.
"A Chonaiil" said Napoleon after he
had read the petition. "One of the fanatical followers of Charento's and Larochu-

childish you are, Josephine, to ho blinded
by magicians!"
With these words be approached the
sideboard and took an apple from a basket.
"See, in such an apple I found the pet i
tion. Theso aro on my table overy dav
and accident led me lo it."
Bonaparte shrugged his shoulders and
cut the apple. It concealed a similar po
tition. Bonaparte showed Josephine the
ingenuity with whicli tlio kernels vert '
taken out and the space lilled out with a
rolled up paper,
"Tho man could not but succeed," hi
said, "you may have wished as yon

 " in an innocent person    Josephine knew
now that her charge was irrevocably lost.
"Ahl Bonaparle,  I  pray you, do nol

innocence of my house."
"With you?   He is hero then?"
"No, but lie will como again; I hoped i
to entertain you  with  his artful trick?
this evening."
"Foucho will find bim."
Without listening any more ho tramped on the apple and its contents, which
were on the floor, to hurry back to Paris
Josephine's sorrow was indescribable I
For the first timo she felt tbat thero was
a placo in Napoleon's heart to which she
bad no access. She instituted search in
tlio vicinity of Malmaison and weut tc
all imaginable trouble to find him. She
wished to give him money and havo him
taken over tho boundary lino byonool
her own people, but all her troublo was
fruitless. Dinner timo arrived and Josephine, worried with unpleasant
thoughts, left tlie victuals untouched
But when dessert was served both folding doors opened and Georgo Marco ap
peared with his little table, his fino ebony
sticks and tin cups.
"Fly, sir, fly!" Josephine addressed
him, "or you are lost. Vou havo murdered French soldiers and deservo death
I can protect you no longer in my house.
The consul has probably given you up tc
Fouche and you aro helplessly lost."
The magician, on whoso features were
cast such a dismal look yesterday, looked
quietly at Josephino and begged her tc
giro him a quarter of an hour of her
lime. He set tho tablo down und broughl
forth the cup from his pocket. This
timo ho offered neither rubies nor diamonds, and neither did ho let flowers
rain, but there tumbled out littlo soldiers,
footmen and riders.
"These," said he, "aro the Austriaus,
theso Prussians aud these Russians, and
they all unfold on a level. Do you see
their battalions, their squadrons, divisions? Do you see Melas on a horse? He
is their leader, and tho horse on which
he is mounted promised the holy Nico-
laus the guns of the French. There is
tbe French army. Do yon see the general witb a flying plume? He stretches
forth bis hand and all tho armies attack
each other. Do you hear tho thunder oi
the cannons and the sound of the trumpets? Do you see tlie tri-colored flagi
Do you hear the enthusiastic shout of the
rejoicing multitude: "Long livo the republic!   Long live Gen. Bonaparte I"
And all the soldiers seemed to tumble
out of the cups and go in order ready for
the battle on the table, whero thoy performed the movements which George
Mareo commanded. When the battle
was won victorious and defeated returned to his pocket, and the magician
offered to show tbo wifo of tho first consul still moro wonderful things, tho
Egyptian expedition and tbo battle of
the pyramids.
Josephine could not enjoy tho treat.
Believing the man exposed to danger,
she said to him: "Tako this money and
go away."
Mareo, who wa3 moro quiet and collected than yesterday, said: "I would not
sell my art for gold yesterday, much less
will I today. Show me a favor; open
one of these apples."
Josephino did so and found tho following letter:
"Madame: I have just delivered proof
unto the first consul that this Marec,
wbo has the honor to appear before you,
is not tho murderer who has deserved
the punishment of law. Tbe ono you
protect is an honest man, who lias taken
part in the expedition of Ainbeion and
fought bravely, but ermgrated after the
defeat of the Royalists. He did not,
however, go to England, but to Germany,
and trom these has brought with him
the marionette plays, which will probably amuse you very much. The otlier
Mareo is not George, but Joes, and is in
England, where bis actions are watched.
{ am glad to announce that your protege
Is crossed trom the list of emigrants.
"Fouche."
A few days later Josephine again importuned the flrst consul, with the result
that the name of the magician was expunged from the emigrant list.—Translated from the French for Tho Philadel-

on Broughton street, committed suicide
by shooting herself in tbe bead.
A young man named Jno. Croft, the
deceased woman and three sisters, inmates of the bouse, when Croft said he
was going to witness a prize fight.   The
sister of Miss Farnsworth proposed to go
as far as the steamer to which  Croft assented and left lo get a  back.    The deceased  went  to her room and in a few I
moments the rest of the  household were :
startled at hearing a pistol Bhot.   They j
rushed to tbe room and found the jjirl on
ihe (loin with a bullet wound in the right
temple.    Medical   aid   was   summoned,
