CLAY  B   Author of "A Woman's Venffeance," "TThlch Lot��* Him  Best," "Between Two Loves," "Fairy Gold," Etc.  (Continued.)  CHAPTER V.  Since the death ot her beloved husband, Mme. d'Ancel had lived In strict  retirement. For the first time, she now  resolved to open her doors to society.  Tlio neighboring chateaux, villas and  manors were crowded with visitors,  and Mme. d'Ancel had only to make a  sigh to be surrounded, by the notables  of the country.  She"sent out Invitations to dinner In  honor of Edmee Levasseur, whose arrival at the chateau of Cote-Bolsee had  occasioned so much comment.  Everybody knew the story of "that  poor little Mme. Levasseur"���as they  still called her���who had dlod of grief:  and the adoption of this half-sister by  Mile. Levasseur, the admission of the  enemy's child in ��� the victim's house,  had been diversely criticised.  ��� The cure approved his young parishioner openly/ She had accomplished a  duty, a difficult, even painful duty, and  there, at least, virtue had brought its  own reward. In tearing this charming  child 'from dangerous surroundings,  whore her soul was. in peril, in remov.-  ing her from the contact of relatives  more or less connected with the theatre, Marthe had secured a .'gay, young  companion, an affectionate and grateful sister, who charmed everyone.  Even M. le Cure, the best of men,  while delivering his Sunday sermon,  gazed with pleasure at the pew of the  jchateau. K6mee always, attended the  . services with the most demure little  air in th world;  once she had even  - taken up the collection, and M. le Cure,  like the rest of his parishioners, succumbed to" the charm of the bewitching beauty.  Mme. "d'Ancel's home was a large,  modern structure lnthe style of an  Italian villa. The roof was flat and  surrounded by a balustrade, and the  view, from It was so beautiful that they  often spent their evenings there. At  the back-of the house could be seen  the thick forest that stretched along  the hillocks; but the widow's favorite  site was the.vast garden that sloped  to the road, where she gave full sway  to her passion'for flowers. None In the  ' neighborhood could boast of such a  green lawn or magnificent roses as  bloomed in the beds. The'most varied  and rarest specimens -were displayed  In all corners, perfuming the air with  their fragrance. The only fault Mme.  ' d'Ancel ever found with Marthe -was,  that she preferred the forest to her  " garden, to dream the "hours away_in  sombre naths  instead   of .cultivating  ��� these bright blossoms/But perfection  - Is not of this world! ^  The sisters, accompanied by Aunt  Relie, arrived early on the-day of the  dinner, that they might enjoy the  beautiful July afternoon In tne midst  of the delicious perfume of roses, then  In.all their splendor. Both were dressed iri.white, but Marthe's soft, woolen  ' dress was a little severe, without the  least bit of lace; while Edmee's costume of mousseline de sole "was brightened by knots of 'pale pink ribbon that  set off her delicate'blonde beauty and  dark eyes. Aunt Relie' though sniffling in an - antagonistic manner, was  forced* to admit that she .had never  seen a more fascinating,or bewitchlng-  ly pretty creature^ And as demure as a  little saint withal! She never left her  sister's side and did her best'to subdue her merry laughter and coquettish  Instincts, that she might receive her  sister's praises on their return; but,  whenever she did raise her pretty eyes  they were none the. less brilliant, and  the dimples suddenly-reappeared more  bewitching than ever In her dazzling  smile.  As Edmee had seen only'the drawing-room and garden. Robert escorted  the sisters through the property. The  grounds sloped so rapidly that at the  back of the house'they were almost on  a level with the second story. One of  ���the-walks-led-direetly-to-a-large-room-  fllled with books and a" desk littered  with papers. Edmee peeped in curiously.  "Is this where you work, Monsieur  d'Ancel?" she asked."'Is this where  you write that terribly serious book  I have been told about?"  "Yes. Mademoiselle. I amvery quiet  here.;thls corner of tho garden ls-al-  most always deserted, and, as you see,  I can step right into the forest."  "Admit that you i seldom use the  door, but jump right out of the win-  ; dow," laughed Marthe.  "True enough," assented Robert;  "It Is a habit of my. boyhood, which  I have never js-lvea up; It Is so convenient, and one need not be an acrobat to get in the same way. You see  that these houses, built contrary to  common sense, have some good  points."  "And are you not afraid? If you  can get in so easily, others can do as  much. I 'would dream of nothing but  burglars, if I slept In such, a room!"  cried Edmee, who never posed as a  brave girl.  "There is not the least danger,  Mademoiselle. Besides, look at that  pretty revolver, over there,..which my  mother irisistes on keeping near 'me.  It has not been taken out of its case  for years. Moreover, she has provided  that beautiful panoply, less as an ornament for the -chimney piece than  to make .people think me of a belli-  . gerent disposition. But I trust more  to the honesty of the people than to  a false reputation. But come, let us  visit the barns', fields, and park. It  will take us. a full hour and make us  appreciate my mother's dinner. She  has not slept for a week, for fear her  dinner may riot be worthy of the occasion. Come, let us get up an appetite."  While the young people wandered  through the garden, the two matrons  sat quietly.' chatting in the drawing-  room. Afler; a last' tour of inspection  through the kitchen and dining-room,  Mme. d'Ancel was now ready to receive her guests. Mme. Despots and  herself were intimate friends, and  yet, it would have been difficult to  find ; two women more dissimilar. The  baroness was a dreamer, still young  - in heart; .preserved so, perhaps,_ by  her isolated life. She had .let her  watch. run down on the day cf her  husband's death, ' and had never  thought of winding it up since; she  lived entirely in the past, and even  her deep maternal love had not been  sufficient to re-awaken her to the interests of the present day.  Her neighbor,' on the contrary, had  ��2arly resigned hei-self to uartial hab-  pmc-ss. She claimea that the nxtle  satisfactions of life, skillfully cultivated, form a very acceptable semblance;  of happiness; that to re-awaken sleeping sorrows was folly; that laughter  was the right of mankind, and it was  the height of absurdity to deprive  one's self of it. The more so since  laughter, according to her, comprised an Infinity of agreeable things,  like good eating, luxury, the contact  of witty persons, when we are lucky  enough to meet them, or to be satis-  fled with agreeable and' cultivated  friends when the former are not  available.  "It seems to me that your son Is  becoming younger," she said to the  baroness; "there he is, laughing as  if he hacL never poked his nose in the  dusty archives of. foreign affairs."  "Heaven be. thanked! But you must  remember that I always predicted  that Robert would grow younger with  time. He was too serious at twenty,  It was not natural. And then���"  Mme. d'Ancel'r. tongue itched to  tell Aunt Relie a'l her-hopes, but she  stopped short. Hfcd she not promised  Marthe that she would-be silent?���  if Aunt Relie would only: guess! It  seemed to her, that this change in  Robert was significant enough.  "And then," interposed Mme. Despots, "there is nothing like a pair of  bright eyes to dissipate the mists- of  study. Come, my friend, do not look  so-bewildered, for you know . as well  as I do that, since Edmee's arrival.  Robert has abandoned his books, If  lie does not know he is In love,*I do.!'  "You are mistaken, you are mistaken, I assure you," protested tho  baroness, quickly. . .  "Tut, tut, tut, I am rarely mistaken  in -these! matters.

After all, my good  friend, you have nothing to complain  of; you desired Mile.'"Levasseur as a  daugthter-in-law,and this one is very  charming. I am not much in love  with her, but I must admit-that she  is truly bewitching."  "And," added hor friend, who was  beginning to recover her composure,  "you would be delighted to get rid of  her by marrying her off as quickly  as possible."  "Certainly! She disturbs my old"  habits.-Then, I am afraid. I shall  finally succumb to her charms. I  struggle against it, and It is really  tiresome."  "Then,"even y'ou admit that she is  exquisite," said the baroness, whose  maternal egotism was aroused at the  thought that Robert might possibly  prefer the younger sister���for,. after  all, there was no, positive engagement.  "If I admit It! Why, since I know  her, I almost forgive my brother-in-  law. The "old" legend of sirens will be  repeated   a"?   long   aa   tho   world   laalo.

I of ten: went in secret to see her mother on the stage,  and such an actress", I never saw;,  such fascination, such grace, such  charm���in fact, she possessed every-*  thing but-a heart. In the daughter, I  find the same intonations of the voice,  the same smile that suddenly, illuminates the face like a ray of sunshine  through a passing cloud. Look at her,  when she sits down; we simply take  a chair to rest, and our skirts fall  around us as best they may,-while  Edmee's dress arranges itself- gracefully into harmonious folds; when she  speaks, her gestures are" rounded,  never angular, and all that Is so  natural; her words are never ^confused, each syllable has Its value, her  voice is. modulated with an art that  is Innate In her.. Elocution was inculcated In her, by simply listening to  her mother." r  "But," observed   her   friend,    "you  s��v_that Jier_mo_ther__nossessed_eyery:L  t.hln<*-  but  a  heart.  Does  Edmee  resemble her In that resnect also?"  "I have not yet solved, that problem. It Is; possible that she may have  one. To see her with Marthe, one  would swear It. She; overwhelms her  with caresses, follows her._ everywhere like a child/tries to' help her  with the roanasement of the house  and ereta everything In a muddle ol  course. She rushes off to -five orders  to the farmers, forgets all about thein,  arid stops to nlav with the chickens  or tho dorrs, lust because Marthe also  loves chickens and-doc-s. She Is al-  wavs pray, admires - everything, poes  Into* ecstas'es o^er the ' scenery,  -inlpshes delightedly In tho water,  walks, runs, and leads her sister  aDout, while she seems to be follow  ing.her. But this is a new. plaything  The country in' July,, with its noisy  roads, innumerable bathers, chateaux  filled with guests, is well enough  But wait till November, when she 1b  reduced to our quiet society."     '       :  "Youth finds happiness everywhere and always," . murmured- the  baroness, indulgently; "In any case,  it is evident that Marthe loves her  very much and will do anything for  her."  "If she entices, her to Paris a  month or two earlier than usual, ��� I  shall not complain, for my part. Still,  Marthe is by no means weak; if she  considers it her duty to resist any  ���whim, she will resist, you may be  sure. Then, we shall see. Edmee' reminds me of the soft, supple silk I  'use in my embroidery. It threads  easily, caresses the-fingers, and lends  Itself to our wishes;' then, suddenly,  without apparent cause, it forms a  small, almost. imperceptible knot and  breaks the needle short. So far, no  knot has appeared; but it may come  yet."  The" knot appeared before the end  of the evening.  The dinner was a "success. The  guests were mostly young, eager for  amusement, and did full justice to  the numerous dishes. The table' was  decorated with the most beautiful  roses from the garden, and the wide,  open windows admitted the balmy  air of the beautiful summer evening.  Edmee began to forget her good resolutions. She felt that she was incori-  testably the queen of the feast, the  prettiest and most admired of all the  women present, and the joy of her  triumph was betrayed in her merry  laugh and the brightness of her eyes.  Captain Bertrand was her neighbor,  and she amused herself by completely turning his head. Robert, who, ,1a  his capacity as host, was seated between two elderly matrons, shot en  vious glances *"a:t" tlie" corner "where"  Edmee enlivened everything by ��� her  Parisian wit. Fully conscious of these  glances, she redoubled her coquetry.  Marthe was too far away to check  her sister's exuberance; besides,  everybody was gay and it was hard  to lecture this child for a few pearly  laughs. " Then, the dear little Edmee  was so - pretty and*- admired.- The  thought of being jealous of this newcomer, who eclipsed her so completely, never even-crossed her mind. On  the contrary, "she was extremely  proud of her little sister's beauty and  success.  After dinner, they drank coffee In  the garden, and Marthe came to her  sister's side and clasped her arm  around -her waist. The young people  formed a gay and -noisy group; the  moon shone with extraordinary brilliancy, and it was almost as light as  day.  "You are very warm," Edmee," observed Marthe, as she noticed her  flushed cheeks; "put this lace scarf  around your neck. Do yott know,  Mademoiselle, that you was very  noisy at dinner? "What have.: you done  with that exemplary behavior of the  first part of the day?"  "I have passed it to you, Marthe;  it never inconveniences you. I can  not endure It more than an hour at  a time. Ah! let me be a little wild, it  is so good to be foolish, and alas!  one is eighteen only twelve months.  If you knew what projects we have  formed. Ah! what fun we shall have,  shall we not, Captain?"  "And what- are those projects?"  asked Marthe, smiling indulgently.  "Shall I take part in them?" broke  in Robert, coming near, not di ring to  ask himself which of the two sisters  attracted him there..  "Of course you shall, so will the  captain, and all these gentlemen. We  shall be eight young girls and we  must have escorts. To begin'���l.wlth,*  Monday we shall: breakfast at the  Vlrglnie fountain/shall we not Mar--  the?"        ... -   . -    '  "Very.well, my dear."  "Then, we shall "play a comedy". Society comedies are so amusing, especially In the country. The large  drawing-room with the little boudoir  is just suited for the purpose. The  captain Is an admirable actor, and  I���" ,  Edmee stopped short. Her- si'stei  had withdrawn" her arm and ��� seemed  very pale in the moonlight.    -^  "Not that, Edmee, not that!" she  exclaimed, in an altered voice.  "Why not?" asked the young girl,  angrily, her pretty face clouding up  at this first contradiction to her caprices. ' r   ���  "Drawing-room' comedies are, no  doubt, very amusing things for the actors"; ���: but very tiresome for the others,  [assure you."  "But we shall all be actors, the  young people at least; and the others  don't count."  "In my house, the others do count;  Edmee. We shall have no comedy."  This was said in a tone that admitted of a reply. They all understood  that Marthe had not given the true  reason of her antipathy to theatricals.  Edmee raised, her head haughtily;'  her features assumed a cold," harsh  expression, - and she said ' nonchalantly: -N  "As you wish, of course! Monsieur  d'Ancel please give me -your" arm. I  would like to "admire,"the view- from  the terrace. We can go up, can we  not? Come all, I am sure that in this  moonlight the sea must be -perfectly  wonderful!"   . * * -'    ���  Marthe did not follow them;- Something lu the manner Edmee; had taken  Robert's, arm had suddenly struck  her. She turned back and took a seat  beside" Mme. d'Ancel. The - baroness  took her hand affectionately, as if to  beg forgiveness for her infidelity  during' the conversation with Aunt  Relie.  "Are you ill, Marthe?" she said.  "Shall we-go in?"-  "Oh! no, we are so comfortable  here."    ���  "Then what is it?"  "I am a little sad, that Is all. It Is  a strange contra.diction-of my ..'"nature;  that makes me sad when others are"  gay. But what will vou, lam no longer eichteen. .As Edmee says, one is  eighteen for "twelve months only.

In fact, .smuggling was considered ;a  perfectly legitimate ..piirjiult.''. Everybody' was ready to profit by it, from  the squire, who filled his cellars with  cheap wine, and bis ..wife, who adorned  herself In cheap silks, to tlie shopkeeper, who got cheap groceries, or the laborer, who got high, wages for work  that was secret, unlawful and perilous.  Even Adam Smith confessed to a weakness for smuggling and nobody was  abeve bargaining to have a pipe or a  hogshead put in his cellar at a low figure. But. smuggling on a large scale  was not carried on without bribery,  perjury, Informing, violence and. murder."  Of the old time London watchman:  "He was wrapped in a wide skirted  heavy coat, a useful garment for protecting him from the ^cold, but not  adapted to enable him to cope with the  bullies who assaulted the -weak and unprotected. He wore low shoes and a  big broad brimmed hat, which could be  turned up or down, worn forward or  backward. The only means of defense  which the watchman; seems .to have  possessed was a staff something like  a beadle's. In his left hand he carried  his lantern." -    -  In those primitive times pins wero  manufactured by hand and went  thropj-h several stages of manufacture:  Worker No. 1 formed* the wire, Zlo. 2  cut It Into lengths, No. 3 smoothed It,  the fourth man made the^head, the  fifth Ock & oa< t*10 Blxth Sround the  point, the seventh washed and dried it,  and^ it had to go through three more  hands after that; hence it Used to be  a familiar proverb, "It takes ten men  to make a pin."

Delicate Machinery I�� Made,  In the reservation ot the lighthouse  department at St.* George, Staten  Island,; there is an ugly three story  building of brick that is tne "department store" of the lighthouse service  In this country and Its-foreign possessions." Practically everything In the nature of a mechanical device used in the  service, from the biggest lantern to the  smallest order of light, .and Including  the apparatus for blowing fog signals  and making the lights flasnon_'gas  buoys," is turned .out in this place, and  not only sent to all the stations In this'  district, which includes Porto Rico, but  also as far away as Alaska, and even  to the Philippines.  The mechanics employed are all men  of the highest grade, for the ,objecta  they are at'work on are too delicate,  as, a-ruMf, to allow of-much machine  labor, and in addition to this the government has never seen fit to spend  sufficient money on the plant to fit it  out with such machinery. In a stroll  through** the workrooms one - can see  men turning out the delicate brasswork.  that keeps the , flashlights on. .a gas  buoy going for three months at a time,'  the.curious brass cylinders that make  the wailing cry of a fog siren, tiny  floating stops that serve.to keep the  oil from overflowing In the lamps after  the manner of a student lamp, and the  clockwork that keeps revolving lights  turning around hour, after hour through*  the long nights.  ��� ~   -      . _-*  The only thing they don't make in  this department store are-tbe lenses,  which are Imported from Paris or London. These are "assembled" in these  shops, however, and one can see lanterns of all sizes in the cdOrse of preparation, from the smallest slze~used in  the service":to lones' of the power, sufficient to go In lighthouses of the first order. Of course the department has to be  -ready for emergencies in the way of  breakdowns of lights, as - well as of  lightships, and so "they not only keep  two light.vessels at the wharf always  ready for Instant service, but they also  have In this storehouse, an emergency  light that can be put up" anywhere and  fitted to" take the place of any light of  auy description," whether it be fixed or  revolving, red and"! white or all red.

The practice of granting arms Is still  In vogue In England, Ireland, Scotland,  "AustrlaT~Spain,���Portugal^Italy,���Germany, etc., and at times the pope, as  sovereign pontiff, exercises the power.  Indeed,-Jt is by. patent or grant alone  that a new family can legitimately acquire a coattof arms.  The modus operandi in England, for  example, Is as follows: The applicant  for'a patent of arms (from the crown)  may employ any member he pleases of  the heralds' college and through him  present a memorial to the earl marshal  of England; who acts for the crown in  these matters, setting forth that be,  the memorialist, is not entitled to arms  or cannot prove bis right to such and  praying that his grace the earl marshal  will issue his .warrant to the kings of  arms, authorizing them to grant and  confirm to him due and prop or armorial ensigns, to bo borne according to  the laws of heraldry by him and bis  descendants. This memorial is presented and a warrant is Issued by the  earl marshal,' under which a patent of  arms is made out, exhibiting a painting of the armorial ensigns granted,  the royal arms of England, the arms'of  the earl marshal and those of the college and describing in official terms the  proceedings that have taken place and  a correct blazon of the arms. This patent is registered in the books of the  heralds' college and receives the signatures, of the garter and one or both ot  the provincial kings of arms.  A grant or patent of arms is made to  a man and his male descendants. This  gives him a fee simple of them-���that Is  to say, to him and to his male descendants equaify- and altogether and to his  female descendants in a qualified manner���i.re., for life, to bear the arms in  a lozenge or impaled with .their bus-  bands' arms (if the husbands have  arms), as arms can only be brought in  by arjns, or, if they be heiresses or coheiresses, on an escutcheon of pretense  upon their husbands' shields, and in  the lasf case their descendants inherit  such maternal arms, but only as a  quartering.���-Nineteenth Century.  ������       Battlefield Com-ase.

New Zealand, the colony of Socialistic,; even radical, legislation, haa  found a remedy for the housing problem' In the .enactment of the Workmen's Homes-Act... According- to Mr.  A. A. Brown of Dunedin,; New Zealand,  who.. Is visiting In Canada," the remedy  Is proving a cure for the "high-rent"  complaint.  Mr. Brown';explained that under'thU  Act a "workman"- was a married man  earning about &156 a year, cr $15 a  week. : The Government dealt In".two  classes of houses���frame structures; at  ��350,'and'brick houses, at ��450. Thesa  were-leased-to-"workinen"-et���rental  equaling-.5 per cent' on the Investment. .That means aJbout $7.30 pec  month for the frame houses and $8.80  for "the .more substantial, class. The  Government Is secured by a twenty-  year endowment policy on the life of  the .-."workman," and if the insured  dies within "the twenty years the Government gets the proceeds of the policy.  The widow receives a clear.title deed to  the property. If the workman lives till  the end of that period the proceeds of  the endowment go to the Government,  and.the man gets his deed. . The Government has already commenced tha  erection of houses In Wellington and  Dunedln on this principle, , -  New Zealand also has an "Advano*  to ���Settler/ Act,", which provides for  Government loans of money -to farmers  and others, at 5 per cent, to the value  of two-fifths of security.

Few people, have escaped jammed  fingers, and as the pain - caused when  tbe finger Is jammed lu a door Is excruciating In the extreme for the first  few minutes it is well to know of some  means of relief. The finger should be  plunged Into water as hot as can pos-  slbly-be-borne.���This-application-of-  hot water causes the nail to expand  and soften, and the blood pouring out  beneath It has more room to flow. Thus  tlie pain is lessened.- The finger should  then be wrapped In a bread and water  poultice. A jammed finger should never be neglected, as;lt may lead to mortification' of the bone If it has'-been  badly crushed, and amputation of the  finger must follow. Jammed.toes are  usually caused through the falling of  heavy weights and should be treated  In the same way as a jammed finger.  PERT PARAGRAPHS.

Recorder of Satan's Sorrows Has Troubles of Her Own���Postcards  Libel Her Features.  .Marie Corelll, the well-known novelist, has applied for an Injunction to restrain'A. md'E. Wall, of Stratford-on-  Avon, from publishing picture postcards  purporting to.^depict scenes ln her prl-.  vate life. Miss CorelM is good looking  and ft is alleged that the cards libel her  features. The action again" raises-a  legal point'that has never yet been decided.  Miss Corelll resided at Stratford-on-  A_von, Mr. Eve, K. C, explained, and had  taken somo part in the eocia.1 life of  the" district. - Early thisv month It waa  arranged to hold a Shakespearian festival; to, commemorate what'was alleged  to be the birthday of 'one William  Shakespeare. (Laughter.)  In anticipation of a large number of  visitors being attracted "who would desire to become acquainted-with the other no'table people of Stratford-oh-A'-on,  the defendants produced sets of picture postcards, entitled "The Distinguished Authors Series, No. 1."  Miss Corelll at once took objection to  the cards, and If his lordship would look  at them and at a recent photograph ot  the lady he would see what a gross libel had been perpetrated on her features. (Laughter.)  One, of the. cards ".was called "Shakespeare and his con-temporaries," which  looked as if the defendants wished to  suggest that Shakespeare was a contemporary of Mi/is Corelll. (Laughter.), The publication of the cards had  caused Miss Corelll much -annoyance.  One of the cards complained of represented Miss Corelll presenting a cup  to the Stratford-on-Avon Boat Club,  and the defendant said.-he was present  on the "occasion and it was V the', best  representation he could give'from" memory of the features, of the lacty. who wa��  so gracefully presenting the cup. Another card showed Miss CorelU ln ��  gondola, and the defendant said it depicted what had occurred last summer  on tha Avon. A card styled "Sweets to  the-'Sweet'?-',displayed a pony' carriage  outside Miss Corelli'a house, "and a further, picture depicted,the lady-playing  with a pet dog on a lawn. The latter  was admitted to be purely' Imaginary.  Miss Corelll had.no dog.  Counsel said he thought there was a  Her Reference.
