President N&wofl, of the Lake Shore road,
It is related, was a little tardy in providing
himself with 18S crudoutmLs, and, being ac
costed with ''Tickets, please," by the cou
ductor, fished out a last year's pas and at

ductor knew his business, though, and Mr,
Newell had to pay his fare for the first time
-in many years.
A visitor who saw Hugh Maxwell Brooks
in his coll in St. Louis the other day, asked
him if it were true that he smoked seventy
or eighty cigarette a day. "No, indeed," he
responded blandly, "I am a very moderate,
uuokor. I smoko only once a day from
7:!i0 in the moruing until 0:30 at night."

It Isn't worvh while to fret, dear,
To walk as behind a hearse.
No matter bow vexing things may be,
They easily might be worse;
And the time you spend complaining
And groaning about tb load
Would better be given to going on.
And prottHlug along the road.
Ie trodden the hill myself, dear
'TI tbe tripping tongue can preach,
But though alienee 1 sometimes golden, child,
A oft, there is grace in speech
And I ee, from my higher level,
'TIs lesa the path than tbe pace
That wearies the back and dim the spa
And writes the lines on tbe face
There are vexing cares enough, dear.
And to spare, when all I told;
And lore must mourn it losses,
And the cheek's soft bloom grow old;
But t he spell of the craven spirit
Turn blessing into curse,
While the bold heart meets the trouble
That easily might be worse.
So nii: at each dlaaste.
' That vill presently pas away,
And believe a bright to-morrow
Will follow the dork today.
There's nothing gained by fretting;
Gather your strength anew,
And itep by step go onward, dear, '
Let the skies be gray or blue.

"Cept. Dnpinl" railed Murst, who, la
one of tbo most beautiful halls of the
Prince do la Pull's palace, at Madrid, was
occupied in drawing np some military
documents. As no one answered Marat,
the prince, as they called him since his
recent ennoblement, raised his head,
a lanced over the gTonp of officers who, a
Few paces oS from him, were awaiting
his commands; and, not perceiving among
them him whom he wanted, repeated with
irritatiou: "Well, then. Capt. llupin is not
there?" Then-, In the same way as an ar
ticle passes from hand to hand when a
line is formed, the name of the aide-de-camp
went flying from month to mouth,
from room to room, through the vast
abode all its doors being open, because
of the temperature, which is po warm In
May in Spain was off on Its way to find
the absentee. Because Murat did not trifle
with the negligent. He again applied
himself to his writing In silence, consent
ing, doubtless, to wait a few minutes; but
the contraction of his eyebrows into a
wrinkle on his forehead indicated his bad
This happened in 1808, when Napoleon's
envoy, who had easily entered Madrid,
thanks to the disturbances In the king
dom, was awaiting the progress of events
with the secret hope of oeing named king
of the conquered country, and hardly
inspecting' that in the hands of his mas
ter he was only a pawn left there, on one
of the squares of the European chess
board, to keep the place for the emperor's
Soon was seen running, thanks to the
obliging call of his comrades, the cul
prit, a charming young man of about 28,
much beloved, an excellent soldier, but
who, however, for nearly a week had ap
peared restless, troubled; in a word, quite
different from what he usually was.
"Where were you, then, captain?" said
the prince, severely, on seeing hnn come,
agitated and slightly out of breath.
"In the palace, marshal." ,
"That Is not enough. You must be
here, near to me. Nevertheless, I have
been taking notice of you for 6ome days.
You are entirely changed. Your anima
tion is gone, you have extraordinary dis
tractions. What, then, has happened?"
"Nothing, marshal, I assure you."
"Indeodl You are no longer master of
"Excuse me. That is true. I have
some anxieties, for family reasons."
"And these family reasons live under
the palace roof, it appears, because people
have met you up yonder, gliding furtively
along the corridors. 1 do not like myste
ries, captain ; do you understand?"
The poor officer blushed and turned
pale. Then, alarmed at the increasing
severity of the chief's tone, fearing some
suspicion more serious than the truth,
decided to make a confession.
"I have my child, a boy of four years,
with me," lie stammered, lowering his
The mince flew into a passion.
"A child of that age! Why not have
a nurse at once? A brat of a boy in the
midst of war, when at any moment an in
surrection' may burst out against the
"If necessary, I will send him away,"
murmured the young man, in a sad voice.
"No; keep hini, since he is here. He
could not bo sent back through a country
ready for revolt. Let hlin w'iuain, but on
condition that I never see him, under
stand; and, above all, on condition that
his presence shall not be the cause of the
Bligntest breach of your duty. That
would be very pretty 1 Discipline would
go on finely if each one of us dragged
about his progeny through a campaign!"
Murat, in a state of fury, turned his
back, leaving the captain greatly excited,
because he, Maurice Dupiu, had not told
alL Not only was he hiding the child in
the upper part of the house, but the
mother, too poor woma come from
France, after risking a thousand dangers,
suffering a thousand deaths, during a
journey in a carriage under a burning
sky in an enemy's country; because she
had wished at any cost again to see and
embrace hor husband, and had been un
ablo to resist the mad brained dosire for
this reunion. "Think, now, if I were to
die far from thee I" she had said, with
the unceasing cry of a poor creature on
tlyj eye of a crisis, real or imaffluory, jn
wiiicii.suo may te overwhelmed. The
youn husband did not feel himself strong
enough to turn her away, lie had set
tled her on the third floor of the palace,
tho room was not missed, and she had
since lived in a constant fright, due to
A week rolled by after the explanation.
The general spoke no more on any subject.
He continued, however, to give his orders
In short, sharp style a sign that his dis
satisfaction was not yet dispelled. But
one fine rcom'.ng, under the influence of
an unknown good humor, ho suddenly
took it into his head to ask his aide-decamp:
"Well; about this childt Cannot he be
"Yes, indeed, marshal. I will go and
find him if you wish it."
In a few minutes after the young father
brought a love of a little soldier in full
parade uniform. A tiny sword beat
against his legs, which were enclosed in
red morocco boots, with gold spurs, and
on his shoulders the hussar's pelisse,
trimmed with (ur in the Hungarian style,
completed the rich army costume of the
time. The captain, foreseeing that,
sooner or later, by chance or voluntarily,
the prince might see the child, had con
ceived tbe idea of presenting the little
fellow in the uniform most likely to flatter
his superior. The little rascal, in fact,
had only to appear haughty and swagger
ingpretty enough to eat under this
equipment to conquer the redoubtable
chieftain. The marshal took him astrad
dle across his knee, called him "my jolly
dog," and made glorious promises to him
for his future life. ,
"When you shall be grown up I will
attach you to my personal staff. You
shall fight at my side."
"Yes, Prince Fanfarinet," warmly an
swered the future aide-de-camp.
But Murat 's face turned dark. "Prince
Fanfarinet?" Might it be by chance a
sobriquet brought in by this innocent
"Why do you call me so?" he asked.
"Because iu the fairy stories Prince
Fanfarjnel.is-iie handsomest of alL and
you resemble him."
"Hal hal Then I am greatly flattered.
And you, how do they call you?"
"Aurora. " f
"The Princess Aurora? That Is also a
rame from the fairy stories. A little boy
Is not railed by that name."
"But I am not a little boy; I am a little
girl, disguised. Ask mamma."
Then, despite the father's despairing
6lns and to Murat's great delight and
amusement, tbe little girl, with all the
frolicsomeness and ingenuousness of her
age, went on to relate that she had come
from Paris in a big carriage; that they
had encountered bears in the Pyrenees,
and also the Spanish queen, who was
making her escape; and furthermore, that
they had been greatly frightened in an
ten, where the innkeeper was killing
bogs, because she and her mamma had
believed that they were assassinating
men; that now they were living up stairs
in beautiful rooms, with silk draperies,
gilt everywhere, but very villainous pic
tures; that among the things there that
she liked was a large mirror in which she
could see herself all over, and also some
playthings which were doubtless aban
doned by the royal children in their flight.
"Captain," said Murat, charmed with
this delightful chatter, "it only remains
for you to present me to Mme. Dupin. I
have already met her hi France in society.
I have retained the best memories of her
beauty and grace. When a man has such
a family he is not allowed to conceal it.
As to this little one," he added, caressing
Aurora's cheek, "she is full of wit, she
tells a story with imagination and an ex
traordinary charm. I shall miss my little
orderly, who showed such a blustering
desire to follow Prince Fanfarinet, but I
shall not be greatly surprised if France
finds in his place a second Mme. de Stael."
Aurora Dupin, become Mme. Dudevant,
was destined to be still greater than De
Stael, for it was she whom the world
knows as George Sand. Translated from
