ROMANCE IN REAL LIF E .
D ra m a tic Reunion of C ount
C ro ix and H ia Fiancee.
The Count de St Croix, belong
ing to one of the noblest and
wealthiest families in France, be
came engaged, after a long court
ship, to a lady his equal in position
and fortune and famous for hei
Shortly after the happy day was
appointed which was to render two
loving hearts one the count was
ordered immediately to the siege
of Sebastopol, so he girded on his
saber and at the head of his regi
ment marched on to the battlefield.
During the count’s absence it
happened that his beautiful affianc
ed was stricken down with small
pox. For weeks she hovered be
tween life and death, but recovered
only to find her beauty hopelessly
lost. The disease had assumed, in
her case, the most virulent charac
ter and left her not only disfigured,
but seared and scarred to sffeb a
frightful extent that she became
hideous to herself, so she resolved
to pass the remainder of her days
in the strictest seclusion.
A year passed away, when one
day the count, immediately on his
return to France, accompanied by
his valet, presented himself at the
residence of his betrothed and so
licited an interview. This was re
fused. He, however, with the per
sistence of a lover, pressed his suit,
and finally the lady made her ap
pearance, very closely muffled in a
At the sound of her voice the
count rushed forward to embrace
her; but, stepping aside, she trem
blingly told him the story of her
sorrow and burst into tears. A
heavenly smile broke over the
count’s handsome features as, rais
ing his hand above, he exclaimed:
“ It is God’s work! I am blind!”
It was even so. When gallantly
leading his regiment to the attack
a cannon ball passed so closely to
his eyes that, while it left their ex
pression unchanged and his coun
tenance unmarked, it robbed him
forever of his sight.
It is unnecessary to add that
their marriage was shortly after
solemnised, and, despite their afflic
tions, they lived to enjoy great

Nothing exists within the entire
range of the most powerful tele-
spectroscope that humans can make
but electrons. Every phase of mat
ter on earth, end the same kinds or
elements are to be seen on every
clear night glowing in many mil
lions of distinct suns, can be resolv
ed into primordial basic electrons.
Hence T have repeatedly asserted
that nothing exists but electrons.
Electrons at rest are not matter—
they are pure electricity. No atom
of any chemical element can appear
in space until electrons revolve
around each other. Speci’ c speeds,
distances of orbits, numbers of elec
trons revolving and direeron*. of
their revolutions determine what
elementary atom ihaU be formed.
This is the set, rigid and basic fact
of modern science— Edgar Lucien

When Mr. Brown was away from
home on an extended business trip,
he got a long letter from his wife.
It ended thus:

Perhaps there is an element of
truth in these conjectures, but it is
terribly small. Alexander the Great
was a warrior of some repute, whom
no one has accused of timidity and
few have charged with refinement.
His nose, like his blood, was pure
Greek. Socrates had a snub nose of
pronounced type, but his heroic life
of seventy years shows no childish
quality unless it be bluntness of
speech. The nose and the ambitions
of Louis XIV. were Roman, but he
was physically a coward, and his
executive ability consisted in ce
