HIS WAX FIGURE.
Wo had boon discussing famo apd ita
reward. Wo assumed that wo, each and
all of ub, had attained eminence, and
wo speculated on ,the honor that we
rtiould oleot to rocelvp from a gracious
sovoroign and n grateful country. 9omo
cboso tho Garter, otHors an earldom,
others a pecuniary grant, but Colonel
rjolborow would havo none of these.
9o poohpoohed thoin, pnd bringing his
Ost'dowd on tho tablo ho declared:
"Thero is only ono indisputable and
supremo mark of greatness."
"And what ia that?" asked ono of us.
"Why, to bo in tho waxworks," said
"Truo, true!" I cried, but added sad
ly, "but it's almost impossiblo to
achiovo unless you commit a murder."
"I don't know about that," said Jack
Doxter, who had up to that momeni
taken no part in the conversation. "I'm
In a waxworks show myself, not in Lon
don, you know, but well, havo any of
you follows visited Petersburg?"
Wo all admitted that wo had not
"Ah, then you haven't seen my imago,"
said Jack regrotfnlly. "It's in Mme.
Marribon's famous exhibition there."
"But, my dear Jack," said tho colo
nol, "how in tho world did it como
"It's rather a curious story," said
Jack. "I'll tell it you if you'll all prom
ise that it shall go no further. You
won't mind if I don't mention names?"
Wo proinid discretion and said that
wo should bo quite satisfied with A, B,
C, or X, Y, Z, or such other symbols as
Jack choso to adopt
"Well." ho began, "when I was a
few years younger and a good deal more
foolish than I am now it was before
that affair about Lady Mary Fitzmoino
that I told you of tho other day I
spent a winter at Petersburg, and there
I made tho acquaintance of one of tho
most beautiful women who, I suppose,
Jack paused to allow tho sensation to
tako full effect, but wq showed no sur
prise, and with a slight frown ho con
tinued: "I'll call her tho Princess X. Prin
rea Kadia X Sho was married to a
grumpy wretch, who held a high pqs
Stanly the police asd tretl her, upea.
"ray word, littfd better than If ebohid
been a nihilist I pitied her. 1 must ad
mit I am among gentlemen that I
also admired her, and that a warm, al
though perfectly honorable, attachment
sprang up between us. Her husband
was, however, savagely and unreason
ably jealous, and what with him, his
spies and his mother (the worst spy of
all) it was with tho utmost difficulty
that I succeeded in seeing anything of
tho princess. I dared not to call at her
house more than onco a month, ana 1
was driven positively driven to 9
thing for which I entertain the greatest
dislike. I was, I Eay, compelled to make
arrangements which insured my being
present at various places of public re
sort picture galleries and tho like at
tho times which tho princess selected for
visiting them. By theso means we were
enabled to enjoy many most charming
conversations and it was my privilege
to support and sustain tho princess in
tho very trying circumstances In which
her lot was cast. I did this, I need not
say, at very considerable risk. I was
not blind to tho danger I ran. Her hus
band wiolded largo and secret powers.
Savo that I was an English subject, I
was entirely powerless against him, and
it would havo been a long timo befoxo
tho voico of a prisoner in tho fortress of
Peter and Panl reached tho ears of tho
foreign office. However, I took tho risk.
Nadia needed me, and that was enough.
"But of all our rendezvous thero was
nono which wo found rnoro convenient
and suitable than Mme. Marribon's
waxworks exhibition. It was a lpng
way from tho princess' residence, in an
unfashionablo quarter of tho town, and
was frequented mainly by persons who
did not movo In society and were quit
unfamiliar with faces as well known in
the great wor)d 03. thoso of fho princess
and myself. Our only danger arose from
tho maidservants of our acquaintances
and from tho police, but by avoiding
tho gallery in which tho figures of mur
derers and other criminals wero exhibit
ed wo reduced this peril to a minimum
for of course tho servants were at
tracted by tho criminals, and tho polico
wero attracted by tho servants. Our fa
vorito nook was beside a group of sa
vants of European reputation and im
mediately behind tho primo ministers of
Europe. This spot wo usually had quito
"Well, ono day wo wero sitting there.
Poor Nadia had for n moment forgotten
her troubles and was talking with tho
raro wit and brilliancy which marked
her conversation when sho was in good
ppirits. I was keoping up tha bal of
talk as well as I could and was gazing,
notj I hope, too passionately, at her in
comparable complexion and magnificent
dark eyes liko deep water seen bf
moonlight, thoy were. Dear, dear!"
Jack pausad for a moment and took a
sip from bis glass. Wo sipped sympa
thetically, and ho regained bis com
posure. "Suddenly, just as I was telling the
princess a most interesting ocourrenco
Whioh had befallen me on tho journey

person whoso namo you would all know

nothing and think of nothing. Our sal

What's that society yon told mo yon bo

"I oboyed her, and sho seized from
tho foot of Isaac Nowton a placard bear

is strictly forbidden to touch tho figures.

'"Nadia! What aro you doing hero?
Aro you alone?'
" 'Of course, dear. I camo to Eeo tho

'"What model, child?'
" 'Why, of our friend Mr. Dexter.'
"'That young man?'
" 'Yes. Don't you know bo's ono of
tho greatest zoologists in tho world, and
Marribon has just put up a model of
him. Look, hero it is!'
"I don't know that I'm moro nervous
than other people, but it was, I confess,
a trying moment when tho old lady put
up her oyeglasses and stared at me.
Dear Nadia stuck her pretty head on
ono sido in a critical way and said:
" 'I don't call it very good. Do you?
It's so stiff and unnatural.'
' 'The old lady said nothing. She came
a step nearer and raised her parasol.
Tho old wretch was going to poko me!
"'Ob, but you mustn't touch it!'
cried Nadia, turning pale. 'Look at tho

But at this moment ono of tho police
appeared at hex olbow.
".'Yon mustn't touch tho "figure
madame,' said he, and I blessed him
for overy word.
"Never a word did tho old princess
speak. Sho glared at me, sho glared at
Nadia, and sho glared at tho policeman,
and sho turned round and walked out of
tho gallery. Tho policeman followed
her. Nadia softly clapped her hands. I
sprang forward, seized her slim fingers
and kissed them.
'"Oh, we'ro not safo yet,' sho said.
'My mother-in-law srpects. Luckily

"I was amazed, but I listened to her
instructions. Taking ont her purse, she
pressed it on me. I refused, but on find
ing that I had only a 0 pound noto I
was compelled to accept 20,000 rubles

Marribon's surpriso and swept away her
scruple?. I admitted that sho might, not
unnaturally, never havo heard of Pro
fessor Dexter, but I told her that tho
namo was a household word in all cul
tivated circles in England and America,
aud 1 promised her to pay all expenses
and 10,000 rubles if a portrait model
of tho great 7-oologist stood besido Kant
in 36 hours. Tho result was that by 0
o'clock in tho evening I was sitting in
an armchair and young M. Marribou
was taking a cast of my features in
plaster of paris. At this moment, how
ever, thero occurred an interruption
which, If it bad como n littlo sooner,
would havo ruined tho wholo affair.
As I sat, covered with tho plaster, ex
cept whero holes wero left for sight and
breathing, I saw, to my consternation,
tho 6auio policeman who had been in
tho gallory in tho afternoon enter tho
room. Ho brought with him an official
" 'Order from tho minister of tho in
terior,' ho said. 'You'ro to closo to
morrow day of intercession for the
safety of tho czar ordered, and all pub
lic exhibitions to bo closed. '
"I rejoiced to hear that. It smoothed
my way, but I wished tho policeman
would tako himself off.

here? I must havo his name, please.'
" 'This is Mr. Doxter, tho great zool

must havo that stuff off his face, yon
know. Why, ho might bo a nihilist, or
anybody you like, and 1110 nono tho
wiser, with that stuff on him. '
" 'But, my dear sir,' pleaded Marri
bon, 'tho btuff won't como off. If I try
to reniovo it before it hardens, it will
toar off his skin with it. That is tho
caso with plaster of paris, you know,
" 'Can't holp it, ' said tho brute. Tvo
got my orders, and no distinction is
mado as to tho effect 011 the skin. I
must seo his face. '
" 'Oh, impossible!' cried Marribon.

" 'Then I'll wait,' Baid tha man, and
ho sat down.
"As you may suppose, my brain was
busy during thoso 15 minutes. If 1
could speak alone to Marribon for an in
stant, I saw my way. An Idea struck
mo. Speaking as well as I could through
tho mouth hole, I suggested that wo
wero probably all thirsty, and I held
out some rubles. Would tho gentleman
fetch somo brandy? Ho wavered and
foil, flo was gono fivo minutes. When
ho returned, my faco was uncovered
nnd Marribon rioher by somo valuable
instructions and a couplo of thousand
'"Why, you' vo got a figure of him
already!' criod tho policeman.
" 'Cortainly wo had, but Mr. Dexter
was not satisfied with it, so I havo
taken advantago of his visit hero to tako
a fresh cast. '
"Tho man lookod suspicions.
" 'Whero's tho old one?" ho asked.
"'It's melted down,' said Marribon
suavoly as ho poured out tho brandy.
"That peril was past. My next visit
was to Marribon s advertising agents.
By noxt morning wo flooded tho town
with posters, announcing tho new and
interesting addition to tho exhibition.
I received scores of congratulations on
my distinction, and also on my singular
modesty, for nobody in Russia had over
heard of my famo a3 a zoologist before.
I accepted tho kindword3 of my friends
with gratitudo; and I invited a largo
company to lunch on tho following day,
proposing that wo should afterward go
and viow tho model. My guest3 included
Prmco and Princess X. and tho prince's
"Behold us, then, tho next day in tho
gallery! Nadia and I wero somewhat
nervous, tho princo a3 glum as usual,
tho old lady very curious, and tho rest
of tho company politely interested.
Thero was tho modol, and I am bound
to say that it was not a very good one.
" 'Yes, said Nadia, 'it is' stiff and
awkward. I said so before to your moth
" 'Did you?' ho growled.
"Then tho old lady, who had been
examining tho figuro carefully, burst
out in acid triumph:
"'It's not tho figuro I saw! What's
tho meaning of this? Tho ono I saw had
a red flower in its buttonhole. Nadia,
what's tho meaning of this?'
"Tho poor girl flushed crimson, but I
interposed with great suavity:
"You aro perfectly right, princess."
The figuro is not tho samo. Tho ono you
saw was an experiment a trial. It was
considered unsatisfactory and was melt
ed down. This is a new ono. Isn't that
so, M. Marribon?"
" 'It is so, monsieur, ' said Marribon,
who wa3 accompanying our distinguish
"'But, cried tho old lady, 'tho ono
I saw was a thousand times' better. It
.wa3 most lifelike."
" 'Ob, did yon think so, dear?' pro
"Suddenly tho princo turned furious
ly to Marribon.
" 'Speak tho truth, ' he cried, 'as yon
told it to mo at tho polico bureau this
"Tho wretch looked at mo with an
expression of helpless apology and bo-
hind him I saw that policeman!
" 'Does M. lo Princo citoM. Marri
bon to contradict me?' I asked haugh
tily. " 'You'll hear what ho says. Tho
truth, sir, not tho lies vou bribed him
"Marribon had sold me! No doubt
tho policeman had smelt a rat, and the
prince's threat had dono tho rest In a
trembling voico tho wretch began to re
peat tho whole story of how I went to
him. Tho old princess' eyes blazed with
triumphant malice, tho prince listened
with a grim smile, and poor Nadia was
as palo as a ghost, and, as you may sup
pose, I was very uncomfortable.
'"Then, asked tho prince, 'there
was no figuro of this gentleman hero at
all tho day beforo yesterday?'
'"None, your highness. '
" 'Yet my mother saw ono, and you,
policeman, saw one:'

" 'I think wo will ask Mr. Dexter to
explain,' grinned tho prince. 'Other
wise wo must como to tho conclusion
that thero was no figure. '
"I had nothing to say.
" 'And,' ho pursued, 'that a trick has
been played, and that tho pretended fig

dertook this deception for motives not
hard to guess. ' and ho stared cruelly at
tho hapless Nadia.
"Every ono was silent. Tho truth
seemed now too plain to bo denied. I
saw what would happen. My portrait
wouuld bo ignominiously ordered off, I
ran a risk of worso things, and I did
not daro to think what would happen to
poor Nadia. who, overcomo by shame,
began to shed tears.
"At this moment a quiet, gravo voico

proceeded from tho Grand Duko A.,
who was (I forget whether I mentioned
it before) ono of my guests.

"Every ono was astonished, I most of

ta simply this that in tho morning of
tho day beforo yesterday, at tfie Invita

friend, Mr. Dexter, whoso merits tho
czar, no less than myself, is delighted to
seo recognized, I accompanied' him to
this gallery, incognito, for tlja Jrarpbse
of giving him my opinion on tho experi

its place, and I inspected it in company
with Mf. Dexter himself. It will hardly

"Ho ceased. I-dared not look at him.
Tho princo and his mother were con
founded, but they could say no',hing.
Nadia wa3 full of gratitude and begin
to thank tho grand duke warmly.
" 'I havo only said what any gentle

"Ho got 12 months, the rascal, for

"But, Jack," said the colonel, "why

"Oh, well," said Jack, "he was a

"She was a woman of great presence

laid his hand on tho door.
"What's becomo of her?" cried the
colonel. "Do yon ever seo her now?"
"Never. I never shall again," said
Jack, in tones of deep emotion, as he

A Maker of Glass Eyes.
Visitors to tho World's fair will re
member tho quaint little workman who
sat in ono corner of a great building
and mado eyes from morning until
night, part of them for jdolls, part of
them for human beings and occasional
ly ono for ahorso or some other pet ani
mal. Tho workman, whose name was
Mnller, had como over from Germany
to show how his people worked, and
when tho fair was over he set np a lit
tlo shop in Chicago and tried for awhile
to make his industry flourish on tsTmer- '
ican soil But after a time he found
that the wholesalo dealers persisted ia
sending across tho water for their sup
plies, and ho grew so homesick that he
finally returned to tho fatherland, and
ho is now doubtless working in some
ono of tho quaint little Thuringian vil
lages. It will bo remembered that he was
inarvelonsly deft in his work. First he
blew a bulb from molten glass. Then,
when it was cold, ho carefully broke off
ono side so as to leave a shell, the edges
of which wero blunted by melting. He
secured tho proper size of eye by having
tho person for whom it was made stand
beforo him as he worked. Having the
shell complete, ho bent down over a
Bunsen burner, and just touching its
upper surface to tho flame he worked
tho eye design on the glass with little
sticks of varicolored glass, tho points of
which were melted in the flame.
Tho work required a wonderfully
steady hand and a true eye in order to
mako the iris and the retina of the
proper color and shape. Tho workman
is so skilled that ho can copy direst
from tho person who stands before him.

The Uicccst Goose.
I heard tho other day an amusing tale .
of a certain well known English noble
man who had imported two emus with
tho hopo of breeding from them, and on
leaving his estate for town left also
strict injunctions that tho greatest caro
should bo taken of tho lady emu if sho
produced tho desired egg or eggs. The
egg arrived in duo course; but, as artists
havo found beforo now, the lady de
clined to "sit." Tho steward, however,
was an ingenious man and thought of
a substitute, but his powers of composi
tion wero by no means on a par with
his inventiveness, and ho announced the
interesting event to his master in the
"Tho emu has laid an egc, but we
were in a great difficulty, as she would
not sit on it. I did what I thought was
best, and in your lordship's absence I
havo placed tho egg under tho biggest
goose on the estate." Pall Mall Ga
