Eight o'clock bad struct^  ou the great,'clock of Versailles,  and it was almost time for the monarch to rise. Servants, with clothes  thrown over Uieir arms, bustled down  the 'passage which' led to. the antechamber. The young ollicer, who bad  been looking wistfully out of tbe window at some courtiers who were laughing and chatting on the terraces, turned sharply upon his heel and strode  over to the white and gold door of the  roy.il bedroom.  lie had hardly taken his stand there  before tlie handle was very gently  turned from within, the door revolved  noiselessly upon its hinges and a man  s  in  Hush!  his thin, precise lips, while his whole  clean   shaven   face  and   high   arched,  brows were an entreaty and a warning.  "The king still sleeps."  The -words were whispered from one  to another among tlie group who had,  , assembled outside tbe door. The speaker, who.was M. Bontems, bead valet-de-  chambre, gave a sign to tlie otlicer of  ,tbe guard and led him into the window  alcove from which he bad lately come.  "Good morning, Captain"'de Catinat'  'Who commands at the main guard?" ,  "Major de Urissac."^  "And j'ou will be here?"   '  "For four hours I attend the king."  ' "Very good.   lie gave me some in-  ' etruetion for the officer of the guard,  lie bade me to say that M. de Vlvoune  "was not to be admitted to the grand  lever.   You are to tell him so."  _,,   "I shall do so." ,     'i  "Then, should a note \ come from her  '"���you understand me, the new one"���  "Mme. de Maintenon?"'  -"Precisely., But it is more "discreet  not to mention names. Should she send  'a note, you-will take it and deliver It  quietly  when, the  king gives you an  opportunity."      " " , ( /  "It shall be done." !  ('"But if the other should come, as Is  possible enough���the other, you understand mo', the former"���  "Mme. de Montespan."     '     , r  ��� "Ah.'.tha't. soldierly-tongue'of yours,  captain! Should (sbe come, I say, you  will gently bar her way,; with courteous  words, you understand, but on no account is she-to be permitted to enter  the ioyal|room." - O , O, ,'  ' "Very good, Bontems.'' '        "    '  "And. now'we have but three mln-  'utes." - He strode through 'the rapidly  increasing group of people.in the corridor with an air of proud humility, as  ', befitted a man who, if he was a valet,  was at least the king of valets by be-  lng_the valejLojC-tbe/fcmg.   Close by the  door stood a line of footmen resplendent in their powdered wigs, red plush  coats and silver shoulder  knots.  v He.  turned tne handle once more and slipped into tlie darkened room. ,  It was a large, square apartment,  with two high windows upon the further side, curtained across with price-'  less velvet hangings. , In one corner a  narrow couch with a rug thrown across  it showed where the faithful Bontems  liad spent tbe night.  Iu the very center of the chamber  there stood a large four post bed, with  curtains of Gobelin tapestry looped  back from the pillow. A square of polished ' rails surrounded it, leaving a  space some live feet in width all round  between the inclosure and the bedside.  As Bontems passed noiselessly across  tbe room, his feet sinking into the  mosslike carpet, there was the heavy,  close smell of sleep in the air, and he  could hear the long, thin breathing of  the sleeper. lie passed through the  opening in the rails and stood, watch  in hand, waiting for the exact instant  when the iron routine of the court demanded that the monarch should be  roused. Beneath hira, from under tlie  costly green coverlet of oriental silk,  half buried In the Huffy Valenciennes  lace which edged the pillow, there protruded a round black bristle of close  cropped hair, with the profile of a curving nose and petulant lip outlined  against the white background. The  valet snapped his watch and bent over  thu sleeper.  "I  have  the-honor  to  inform   your  majesty that it is half past 8," said he.  "All!"    The king slowly  opened his  large dark brown eyes, made the sign  of the cross and kissed  a little  dark  reliquary -which  he drew  from  under  his nightdress.   Then he sat up in bed.  "Did you give my orders to the officer of the guard, Bontems?" he asked. '  "Yes, sire."  "Who isou duty?"  "Major de Brissac at the main guard  nnd Captain de Catinat in the corridor."  "De Catinat! Ah, the young man who  btopped my horse at Fontalnebleau. I  remember him. You may give the signal, Bontems."  The chief;vale't walked swiftly across  to the door, and threw it open; In  rushed the officer of the ovens and tlie  four red coated, white wigged footmen, ready handed, silent footed, each  intent upon .his^own duties., The one  seized upon 'Bontems',rug and couch  and in an instant had whipped : them  off into an antechamber, another had  carried, away the silver taper stand,  while a third drew back the great curtains of stamped velvet and let a flood  of light into the apartment ,';���.  They were hardly gpne'before a more  august group: entered the bedchamber.  Two walked; together In front, the one  a youth little over twenty years of age,  middle sized, inclining to stoutness,  with a slow, pompous bearing, a well  turned leg and a face which was comely enough iu a rnasklike fashion, but  which''was devoid of any shadow of  oppression except perhaps of an occasional lurkiug gleam of mischievous  humor. Ills companion was a man of  forty, swarthy, dignified and solemn.  As the pair faced the king there was  cient   resemblance   V-t ween    the  three faces to show that they were of  one blood and lo enable a stranger to  tjuess that the older was monsieur, the  rounger brother of the king, while the  ather was Louis the Dauphin, his only  legitimate child.  Behind the king's son and the king's  brother, there entered a little group of  notables and of oiBcials whom duty had  i called to this daily ceremony. There  ' were the grand master of the robes, tlie  first lord ,of the bedchamber, the Due  du Maine, a pale-youth clad in black  velvet, limping heavily with his left  leg, and his little brother, tlie young  Comte de Toulouse, both of them the  illegitimate sous of Mine, de Montespan and the king. Such -were Uie partakers in tbe family entry, the highest  honor which the court of France c��uld  -aspire to. '  '' Bontems bad poured on the' king's  bauds a few drops of spirits of wlue,  catching them again iu a silver dish;  and tho first lord of the bedchamber  had pic-sented the bowl of holy water,  with which lie made the sign of the  cross, muttering to himself the "short  otiice of the tlol.v Ghost. Then, with  a nod to liis brother and n short word  of greeting to the Dauphin and to the  Due du Maine, he swung his legs over  the side of the bed aud sat, in his long  silken nightdress, his little white feet  dangling , from beneath it, a perilous  position for any man to assume were  it not that he had so heartfelt a sense  SPRING BLOOD  IS BAD BLOOD  How to  Get   New  Health and  Strength' in the Spring.

So he sat, the master of France  andVet the slave to every puff of wind,  for��a wandering draft had set him shivering and shaking. M.,de St. Quentin,  the noble barber, flung a purple dressing gown over the royal shoulders and  placed a long, many curled court wig  upon bis head, while Bontems drew on  his red stockings and .laid before him  his slippers of embroidered velvet. (,The  monarch thrust his feet Into them, tied  his dressing, gown and passed out^.to  the fireplace, where he settled himself  ..down in his easjvchair, holding out his  thin, delicate hands toward the blazing  logs,., while the others stood <rouud in  a semicircle, waiting for. the grand  lever, which was to follow.  M. de  St.  Quentin, is'tins not our  shaving morning?" said the king.  "Yes, sire; all'is ready."   - t ,  "Then why not proceed?  It is three  minutes after the accustomed time. To  work,   sir; 'aud   you,   Bontems,   give  word for 'the grand lever.'" ,     '   ,   ���  i It'was obvious that the king was not  in a very  good jhumor that morning.  He   darted    little   quick   questioning  glances at his brother and at his sons,  but  whatever  complaint  or   sarcasm  may have trembled l'non his lips0wa9  effectually stifled liy be St..Quentin's,  minismitions.   With 'the   nonchalance  born of Img custom, --.tlie official covered the royal 'chin   with soap, .drew  the razor swiftly round 'it and sponged  over the surface with spirits of 'wine.

His diamond  buckled' shoes,  his gaiters'and his scarlet,inner!'vest  were  successive y   fastened   by   noble  courtiers, y each   keenly  jealous  of his  own privilege, and overHlie vest was  placed the blue ribbon  with the cross  of  the  Holy  Ghost in  diamonds, and  that of St. "Louis  tied  with  red. 'The  black   undercoat   was  'drawn   on, 'the_  cravat of rich lace adjusted,  the loose"  overcoat secured, two handkerchiefs of  costly point carried  forward upon an  enameled saucer  and  thrust  by  separate officials into each side pocket, the  silver and ebony cane laid to hand, and  the monarch was ready for the labors  of the day. .     ,  During the half ho.ur or so which had  been occupied in this manner there  had been a constant opening and closing of tho chamber^ door, and a muttering of names from the captain of the  guard to the attendant in charge, and  from the attendant iu charge to the  first gentleman of the chamber, ending  always in the admission of some new  visitor. Here, close by the' king, was  the harsh but energetic Lou vols, all  powerful now since the death of his  rival Colbert, discussing a question of  military organization with two officers,  the one a tall and stately soldier, the  other a strange little figure, undersized  and misshapen, but bearing tlie insignia of a marshal of France, and owning a name which 'was of evil omen  over the Dutch frontier, for Luxembourg was looked upon already as the  successor of Conde, even as his companion Vauban was,, of Turenne. Beside them a small white haired clerical  with a kindly face, Pere la Chaise,  confessor to the king, was whispering  his views upon Jansenism to the portly  Bossuet. tlie eloquent bishop of Meaux.  Clce to the door Ilaeine, with hiss handsome face wreathed in smiles, -was  chatting with tho poet Boileau and the  architect Mansard, the three laughing  and jesting with the freedom which  was natural to tlie favorite servants of  the king.  "lie becomes harder and harden to  amuse," said Racine. "I am to be at  Mme. de Malntenoii's room at 3 to  see whether a page or two of tlie I'he-  dre may not work a change.

'But I think you.are wrong, Racine."  "Well, what then?"  ������'Thcn.it may be a little serious for  .-ou." .  "And why?|' .-,���.'  , "The Marquise de Montespan has a  memory."  "Her influence may soon be nothing  more. Maintenon is the cleverest woman in France."  "Pshaw. Racine, you know our,dear  master well, or yon should, for you seem  to have  been at his  elbow since the  ays   of  the  Fronde.    Is he  a  man  way to him.  "Ha. then the king doqs indeed mean  mischief. That Is why his brow ls,so  cloudy this morning then. By my  faith, if the marquise has the spirit  with which folk credit her, he may find  that it was easier to win her thun to  Blight her."  "Aye,< the Mortemarts' are no easy  race to handle." ,  "Well, heaven send him a safe way  out of it! 'But who Is this gentleman?  His face is somewhat grimmer than  those to which the court is accustomed.  Ha, the king catches sight of him. and  Louvois beckons to him to advance."  The stranger who had attracted Racine's attention was a tall, thin man,  with a high aquiline( nose, stern, fierco  gray eyes, peeping out from under tufted, brows, and a countenance so lined  and marked by age, care and stress of  weather that It stood out amid tho  prim courtier faces which surrounded  It as auold hawk might In a cage of  birds of gay plumage.'  Louis possessed,in a high degree the  royal faculty of recognition- "It J.s  years since I have seen him, but'I remember his' face ,well," said he, turn-  lug to his minister. "It is tlie Comte  de'Frontenac, is it uot?"  '"Yes, sire,",answered Louvois.

"And you have suffered this?" cried  Louis   hotly.   "You  allow   these  Infamous assassins to live?"  "I bave asked for troops, sire."  "And I have sent some."  "One regiment  More it needed, sire."  "There are tlie Canadians themselves.  Have you not a militia?  Could vou not  raise force enough to punish these rascally   murderers   of  God's  priests?

DROPS Of RAIN.-  Why Moisture In Air .Takes Globular  , Shape When It Falls.  Why" does rain fall in drops and not  in a sheet of water? flow many boys  and girls can answer 'that question?  Perhaps those who cannot would like  to have the explanation, which can  best be given by telling first what rain  Is, says the Chicago News. The^, air  contains nt all times more 'or less watery vapor, which is evaporated from  the ocean, lakes and rivers by the heat  of the sun. When the temperature of  the air falls below, a certain point-  that, Is to say, when tho air,loses a  certain amount Qf ,its heat-this vapor  condenses into water again.( ,  The particles of, water ,tare ."quite  small, nnd ns they form. In the air  they begin to rail of their own weight,  and In falling they meet and unite with  otber particles, thus forming drops. If  the cloud from" which they come be  near the earthi tbe drops are larger  than when it is higher, for there Is  less air resistance" to be met in falling. The higher1 the cloud, then, on  gencial principles, the more tbe drops  aie broken up.  But even If water ever formed in  sheets or in a body up in the air,  which It docs not, it could not possibly  roach the earth in that form, for the  'resistance offered by the air makes It  break up Into drops. That Is' the principle of the shot tower, by the way.  Melted lead Is dropped from an elevated point, and It breaks into shot before It reaches the ground.  THEIR IDEA OF A LADY.

The so called Napoleon top  on woman's boots, the result of tho  tendency toward shorter skirts "for out  of door wear, is being made,very jUt-^  tractive for walking and general outdoor wear as well,as for the arltstie  appearance of the boot and the comfort and support of the ankle.

Droll Incident" In the Reign of
James I. of England.
Magistrate Rasmussen,  of 202 Marquette   fit.,, Montreal,    wiite=;    "For
many   years   1   w^as .troubled   with   a
serious*  eruption  of  the  i=kin.   . This
was not' only unsightly, but it was at
times xery painful.   J first tried various   household ' remedies,   but   these
proved altogether useless.  ,1 then took
medical advice. , Not one, but several
doctors in turn'were consulted,  but I
was unable to get any permanent. ie-
Iie*.    Some time back 1 noticed a report from a Justice of the Peace (Magistrate Perry, J.P. for B.C.) who had
been  cured'of a chronic skin disease
by   Zam-JJuk.    and   I   determined   to
give this balm a-trial. 'After a thoroughly fair teFt, J can nav I a'ni dp-
lighted   with it." I have  the  beht <,f
reasons   for this, conclusion;   because
while everything,else, I tried—fialvcs,
embrocations, 'washes, boapo and doctors' prepaialiens--failed absolutely to
relieve   my  pain  and  lid   me  of my
trouble,    three -' boxes    of    Zam-Buk
worked a complete 'cure.   Jn my, opinion  this  balm   s]iould   be  even   more
widely known than it" is, and I hone

' ' A well-known, Welshman tells the
following'stoiy of Ids childhood—an
experience which came within an ace
of depriving the world of a useful
man. "I was lost. Everybody ivas
looking for ma in every-.nook and
corner of tlie farm. Suddenly rny
mother came out of the stables, all
white and trembling. She had found

Say It  Is no More Exhausting   ,.
,Tjhan   Wheat.
The   question   is 'often  asked,    "Is
flax  a specially ' exhausting    crop?"
Leading agrjcultiir.il  authorities    say
that "chemical  analyses  which    have
repeatedly been- made  of  this    crop,
showing the principal'elements of fertility taken 'from thc'-soil during the
period of its growth  indicate that' it"
is no more,,exhausting than wheat floats.    Piof.  Saundeis  of  the Dominion Experimental Farm, some    years
ago made a careful    study    of/   this
question.   In a pamplet which he published on the subject, referring to the
results of chemical analyses, he said:"
The  greater part  of    the straw    of,
wheat,    oats and flax.grownTin  , the
North-West is usually burnt, wheiv'the
mineral   ingredients   taken  from, -the
land ,are-returned'to it in the form
pf ashes. 'In,the East, where the straw ,
is utilized .chiefly for,, bedding_anim- i
als,„ the mineral    constituents"taken
up are.returnedl-to the soil with'the
manure, hence the seed only neeaVbe..'
considered.'   The, grain in the case cf
'the wheat-crop, takes up a little more
nitrogen    and    somewhat,   less    ' of
phosphoric acid  and  potaSh. than  is
taken,by tlie flax "seed; while the oat
crop takes 'for the"grain a larger pro-"""
portion' of jiitrogen,.'neai-Iy one-third   '
,leBs,of phosphoric acid and about one-
eighth less of potash. ,' The difference" "
however, irir exhaustive effect of these  "
several   crop's   on   a'  rich   soil   would
scarcely, be - perceptible, i 'and    would
not justify tjie opinion that flax is a
very exhaustible crop..''In some e'x-'
periments tried  at  the  Experimental   °
Farni   at  Brand6n,   Man.,'in  sowing'
wheat, oats and bailey after flax,, the
results, obtained   point   to   the', same
conclusion." •        c    l
.However, it is not wise to grow flax
on the.same soil year'after year.  ,A
farmer having"1G0 acres of land  can' '
have portions  of it in ' flax,  wheat,
oafs and other &ci ops1 everv vear and
so rotate the' crops that flax" will not    -.
be grown on the same soil two vears l
in succesion.    It is''better    to    allow
from, three-to five years to elapse be-    -

Inrjrp mn«  of   copper or  brass strips,
two of which coins had hnen punched
to^ofher with a number of imperfectlv
struck coins. Thp discoverv took place
at a distance of ISO feet from the'sur-
lt>"~ .n' the ground.
IT.   A.   Gn.^hAr,   the   keeper  of  the
comq nt the British Museum, to whom
a portion  of  the find  was  sent,  pro-
noTin.c^d fhem to be incompleted farth-
inrs of flip reign of Charles I. issued
between 1C26 and 1G30. Tt appears that
the   right   to   issue   these   coins   was
granted bv Kin? Charles to the Dow-
awr  rwr,eRS   of  Richmond   and   Sir
Francis Crane, who no doubt made a
considerable profit on' the  monopoly.
The result of this monopoly seems to
have. Wn   thnt,   jxtensive     forgeries
took| place, and fbe British Museum's
j expert   is   of   opinion   that .the   coins
found   during    the     excavations     at
vScnrborougl]     Cnstle      are      forgeries
struck  at  the. time,   and that in  all
probability   they   were   thrown  down
the woll toescan,, detection.
The   Observations   of   a    Man   With   a
Sensitive   Ear.
"Of course you have heard," said tht
man   with   a   sensithe  ear,   "a   laugb
that jarred.   I dem't mean," he continued, "so much a laugh at an inoppor
tune time—I imagine we ha\e all heard
such laughs—as a laugh the quality 0/
which   is  unpleasant.   There  is  something   contagious   In   laughter   of   the
fight  Iciud,   even  though  you  may  be
the object of it   It bubbles from the
well of good burner.   There is no hidden thought, or ■arrlere pensee,' as tbe
French  say,   behind  it..   It  Is  the  essence of frankness; it Is spontaneous,
and whole souled, and it cleanses the
system of the laughter and. too, of the
bearer, like a'spiritual..bath.
"But there are other kinds of laughter.  The sneering Jaugh is perhaps the
most  familiar.   Then there is a  quiet
laugh, a sibilant, secretive sort of laugh
that Is quite as certain  to mean  mis
chief.   Another laugh, jdis^reeable In
Its nature, is the high pitched, nervous
cachinnation that comes either from em
barrassment or Is a mere vocal habit.
The  worst A'augli  of all,   however,   to
my mind, Is that mirthless sound pw
voked   I)} .-the   distress  or  embarrassment of others, and it rasps uaturalrjr
most of all the object calliug it forth.
A person  laughed at and  hurt nevei
force ts   the MnBrUioi*!! :
"1 am afraid that step is loose," an
American once said to the jaunting
car   driver   lie   had  engaged.
The man took hold of the stop ancl
shook it "Ah, shine," said he, "it's
too stliiong, it is., What are ve afraid
of ? "
As he was talking the thing came
off  in   his   hand.
Tin's mishap,did not, however, em-
ban.iss tho Iiishman. for, with tlie
sunniest of smiles, he tinned to his
fare, saying:—
"Shure now, I've saved yer honor
fioni a broken log!"—Harper's Weekly-

wr time until he is allowed to go
free," states F. L. Payne of Boise
Idaho, the man who arrested
Orchard the day after the murder
of" Governor Stuenenberg of

the scenes of the famous trial with
'Attorney Fred Miller.
"I wouldn't mind beinf? in Orchard's place myself from now
on." stated Mr. Payne. "He dresses better than he ever did before,
looks well and enjoys many luxuries'.
"Where he gets his money I
don't know. He had about $9
