1j Bo tile Noire.
The 15th of March, 1872, at 9 o'clock in
the evening, a cab stopped in front of the
entrance of the hall of the Bnule Noire.
a man stepped out of tlie vehicle, about 35
years of age, tall, tliin, face intelligent
and bold, slight blonde mustache curled
up and carefully tended, a jacket of black
velvet, soft felt hat a little on one side of
the head, Swedish glove. Another man
hid been walking up and down on the
footpath for the last quarter of an hour.
Frock-coat buttoned up to the chin, dirty
collar, ragged black necktie. large hat. in
Ms hand a heavy cane. lieavy mustaches
and whiskers cut squarely on his checks.
The fvo men acen-t.-d each other, and in
rapid tone exchanged these mmU :
"This Itirts-irt. this way."
"Marcou ! Is if y,u h . s.-iit, f.r. me ?"
. "Ye ; but f lu;rTiWte?cW iighf -mi!
loG na- - people on the footpath Let us
cros t!:e boulevard."
'Shall I keep the cab ?"
'Yes ; he business vi!l not be long, and
we will return to the prefecture immediate
ly after it is finished."
Tliey crossed the roadway, and wbeu
thev were on the other Ride, leaning against
the wall ot a -whitesmith's shop that turns
the corner ot tle Rue des Martyrs, Mar
cou. tlie man with the frock coat, took in
his two hands Diibrisart's hand the man
with the velvet jacket and pressed them
"Dubrlsart, I am glad to see you again.
You never come into our quarters now ;
you wmk in high politic ; you go on
foreign missions have been told of that.
And when I think you began a a little
auxiliary ot no account in my brigade. I
was your protection."
'And yon are still my friend, my dear
Msrcou. I h.-ive had luck ami protection."
"And then yu have education and dis-
tingtrislied manners. There is not a man
at the prefecture wlio knows how to dress
a you do. not even the Prefect himself.
Yoh belong to an honorable family ; yon
sneak English, so you wete sent tn Eng
land under the Empire to see what was
going on at Ti Toui liken w lie re the
Orleans princes were."
"Yes, that- it. I, my dear fellow, have
gone on vegetating in paltrj service, lint
to-night I have a rather important affair
o:s hand. In the course of the clav a certain
Agile Rlpon came to tlie prefecture. Ah .'
you don't know lier. She is a celebrity of
the bails and taverns about here. We
were tlie re four or five ot us chatting
round the stoye. The woman came into
the bureau furious, saying that she knew
one of the chiefs of the Commune, a man
who had pillaged, shot, committed arson,
and done the whole thing iti fact. Xatur
ally we asked Mademoiselle Ripou to take
a chair. She came to offer to give up to
us this evening, at the Boule Noire, Staf
lier. who had lieen clief de legion under the

little sate at Belleville hi ISM) ?"
"Yes ; and it is because knew the
Story ot that stabbing that I asked yon to
come. I don't know Stafner, ami I
thought tliat you would not mind help-

not fear. He is to come lo the ball to
night?" "At 10 o'clock."
"Ami Aglae Kipon ?"
, Three of my men, OervoIer. Pnilat
- Mid I Chaulet, arc going to bring lier.
I bey ouglit to be here already. When site
. dtnade her declaration ghe wanted to go
away, but I did not loose tlie young lady.
I know what woman's auger is ; it goes
up ami down in five minutes. She had
o.dy to find her lover for tie is her lover
to feel a moment's remorse, to warn him.
ami our little plan would have been poil
'. : she had a rendezvous with Stafner at
10 oV.'svfc this evening, ami that was all
that I wanted. I told her that the Govern
merit would pay lier dinner and a cab to
. o to the hall ; but that slie would not le
iionl to go noma until she had served
us up Stafner. Ah ! probably they are ;
; ' tije cab is stopping on this side the bottle. ,
: - The door of a cab opened at a tew steps
from Dubrisart and Marcou. Out of it
came, accompanied by three policeman i
.. plain clothes, a tall arirl in a woolen
a cape of gray cloth, and a black hat with
a bunch of red roses hanging from the left
side. Ot: of ti8 men came op to Marcou
' w'He the two others kept a wutch on the
woman, who looked a r. an id her with an
. jtir ot clarm.
"Monsieur Marcou," said- the man. "you

baa been crying in , the cab. For certain
ie regrets what she has done, and Is afraid
;6fwhat remains for her to do."
, I'll talk to her. said Marcou ; and he
went up to the woman.
"Listen, he said to her. JJ'o nonsense,
you.know. You have your record at the
prefecture. I have been glancing over it
-to-day. There are some bad things In it,

Aglae and the three policeinct: crossed
the boulevard and entered the ball. Mar
cou and Dubrisaj-t followed them, passed
through the room, and went and sat on a
bench aw the end of tin? garden. The even
ing was cool, and the garden was deserted.

IubrKirt to Marcou ; "I bought three or
four excellent boxes at Antwerp."
