eur jargon of "lone" and "quality,

We settled oursel ves by the fire with

no room for doubt as to. his perfect

1 stayed at the 'Ship irw and looked

small cottage which had been empty
for soaue time, but which had evident

think there was -SOJuethiiB queer about
the place. One day I bad been paint

sigh, 1 looked 'round quickly, but
there was one in sight no one in

wit a. an uncomfortable feeling' of some
thing aneanny. and in a few minutes
the sound was repeated actually at my
ear. I dropped my brnsh with the
start I made, and then I went all
through the bouse to see if anyone was
in it. I knew that Annie and her
grandmother bad gone home, and I
thought I hoped that some poor
soul had crept in to shelter from the
raic by the kitchen tire. Well, there
was not a soul near the place, I lock

my brushes fall. In a tew days, how
ever. It became Impossible to explain
the thing by this or any other natural
means; constantly my canvases were
tampered with, and I grew to have the
fouling that after twilight I was never
alone in the room; that faint sigh,
which had so startled me at first, I
came to listen for aud expect, mid I
began at last to clothe It with n per
sonality, and to wish I had some meaus
of comforting the poor soul who hail
no other language In which to express
despair. I did not think It was she
who had defaced my canvas, however,
and I took to carrying my works baek
with me at night to the Inn, where they
were secure from Interference.
"I suppose the thing would have
ended there but for an accident. There
was a race meeting In the town and the
'Ship1 was invaded by a low set of fel
lows, who got drunk and made beasts
of themselves generally. The place
became unbearable and I determined
to camp In the studio uutil they cleared
out, 1 made up a big fire, got my old
woman to leave me some hot water in
the kettle, and with help of a rug aud
a pillow stuffed into the back of my
chair I made myself tolerably com
fortable for the night. How long I
slept I don't know. 1 awoke sudden
ly, not as one does In bed, with a
drowsy feeling of relief that it is too
early to get up, but with every sense
on the alert, and a curious impression
that something unusual was happen
ing. The fire was still bright, and
made a glow on the opposite wall, but
what made the room so light was the
moon shining in through the square
window in Ute roof. 1 could see
everything in the room quite plainly,
but I seemed oppressed by some
weight that made me powerless to
move. 1 sat there staring at what
happened as helpless as If I had been
bound. My painting things were just
as I had left them; my canvas, on
which I had sketched In a head, on the
easel, and close by on a stool, paints,
brushes, and pallet. They had been
there, that is to say, for there stood In
front of the easel, with his back to me,
a tall man, with a stoop in bis should
ers, and dark hair; he had my pallet
In his hand, and he was painting with
a sort of nervous intensity that it
thrilled one to see. I looked to see
what he was painting, tor he kept
glancing over toward the patch In the
moonlight; but at first 1 could see
nothing. Then I heard that little
gentle sigh, but not, it seemed to me,
so utterly weary and heartbroken as
formerly; it was a sigh almost of content-
And as I pondered on this my
eyes seemed to become more ac
customed to the light, and there in the
moonlight, on the very chair in which
Annie had sat was a woman, leaning
slightly forward, young, beautiful, and
very pale but vou nave seen the
picture. I looked at her more than at
hire, only glancing now and then to
see how the work went on. As I
watched her the face changed, and the
sorrowful, worn look gave place to a
kind of wondering happiness he has
not quite got it in the picture; it was
as if the feeling were so intense it
made a kind of radiance 'round her.
I don't know how long I watched. At
last a sound made me turn and look
at the painter; he had thrown down
the pallet and brushes, and was stand
ing looking at his work; then he turned
slow.ly and held out his bauds with a
supplicating gesture. She had risen.
too. and came a step forward with a
wonderful light in her eyes and just
as she put her hands in his a cloud
crossed the moon and blotted out the
figures from my sight. When it passed,
the patcli of moonlight was empty,
and there was only the painted head
and the pallet lying on the floor to
convince me I had not been dreaming.
After that I mast have fallen asleep

welcome and familiar sound of my old

weut on, speaking like a man tihat has
been carried quite out of himself:
"There was a tragic story tokl about
Irake and hi wife. He was a good
deal older than she, and changeable
and moody in his ways; and stw, poor
child, was ambitious to help him to be
great. At first be was tender and
thoughtful toward her. and then he
seemed to forget how fragile and sen
sitive she was he neglected her, and
grew more and more morose and
moody. He used to get very savage
about his model, and complain that it
was impossible to get any one with
intelligence enough to sit decently.
Once his wife asked him whether she
could not sometimes help him by sit
ting, and he only langbed at her, I
remember. Yon you!' he said; that
was all. Then the poor child had an
illness, which, if she had been happier,
might have ended differently and been
a new happiness to both of them; but
she was too worn out with sorrow and
disappointment, and in the end she
died. Iu her delirium she was always
calling to her husband: 'Let me help
you; let me- be of some use; only once,
dear; paint nseonly once;' and poor
Drake, who woke up to a sense of his
loss, was heart-broken at his inability
to satisfy her. The tenderest and
most passionate tones of his voice
never reached her, and she died with
out ever knowing him again. After
that Ifc-ake was a changed man; he
seemed to have only one idea to
paint the portrait of hfs wife- Canvas

me, held out his hand, and said to me
in the most amiable nay, the most
affectionate manner: "I am very
glad to see you; both our houses date
from the same epoch. My ancestors
were more clever than yours; had it

I very soon did my uncle, the Arch

peating to him the compliments paid
by the king to our family. I repeated
them the same evening to the Emperor
of Russia, who was alOompiegne, and
who with much kindness asked me if I

were his own wonts. I have not been
weak enough to relate the openfcig of
this interview to any other person.
Iu the year 1807. when the Em

For this he only needed, first, to
urge Italy to uuife, by giving it the
house of Bavaria; secondly, to divide
Germ an v between the house of Aus
tria, which would stretch to the mouth
of the Danube, aud the house of Hrau-
denberg, which could have been
strengthened; and. thirdly, to re
awaken Poland bv giving it to the
house of Saxouy.
With a true balance of power Na
poleon might have given Europe an
organization in aeconl with the moral
law. A true balance would have made I
war almost impossible. Au appropri- j
ate organization would have brought i
to each people the highest civilization :
of which it was capable.
Napoleon could huve done these
things, and he did not do them. If he
bad done them, he would have had
everywhere statues to mark the grati
tude of the people; every nation would
have bewailed his death. lustead, he
prepared the way for the state of af
fairs which we now see, and brought
upon us the dangers which threateu
us from the Orient. It is by these re
sults that he ought to be, aud will be,
judged. Posterity will say of him:
This man had great intellectual iorce,
but he did notknow what true glory
meant. His moral power was slight,
almost absent. He could not bear
success with moderation, or misfortune
with dignity; thus the moral force
which he lacked was the undoing of
all Europe, aud himself as well.
Placed as I was for so many years in
the midst of his pians and in the very
crater, so to speak, of his politics, and
an eye-witness to what was done or
plotted against him, it did not require
great astuteness to see that the coun
tries recently subdued to his rule, all
these new princi pal i t ies created for
and placed under the domiuiou of his
own family, would be the tirnt to strike
the blow" at his power. Talleyrand

I had some important business to
transact with a merchant in an Ohio
town, but we had scarcely gt seated
iu his private office when in came a
drummer for a Chicago house. He
was probably new to the road, and he
wanted some of his cheek shaved off.
He was politely informed that nothing
whatever was wanted, but he talked
and hung on. and had to be fairly
turned out. In half an hour he re
turned to the attack with a freh stock
of gall, saying:
"I know you must want something,
and I'm bouud to have au order."
Again he was turned away, and
again he returned to the attack. The
merchant was now mad all the way
through, but he concealed the fact and
"Come to think of it, I do ueed a
few thiugs. Get out your order book."
"Ah, ha! I knew 3011 would give
me an order if I hung on long enough!"
exclaimed the drummer. "Nothing
like perse verauce in this profession."
The merchant ordered 2.CHH) pounds
of sugar, teu chests of tea, 1.1)00 pounds
of coffees, and a lot of other goods,
figuring up a big bill, and the drum
mer was on his high heels as he with
drew. "Pretty big order." I observed.
'No order at all," he replied.

MAMMY BROWN, ..
Aa Old Virginia War Time rinr Whe
Has Sarvtma Until the present
One of the most familiar and le
loved faces Iu the Virginia hospitals
during the war was that of an old col
ored woman. By the side of the sick
and dying she wns always to be found
whether they wore blue or gray. The
face of old Mammy Miiry Brown was
the face of an angel of mercy to many
during this time.
She belonged to the old Nell estate.
Her mother, who died within the lust
three years, lived to the age of 112.
and was, up to a few weeks of her
death, a brisk, bright-eyed old lad.
She was visited by many of the "nniil
Ity folks," as she remembered the Rev
olutionary war, being a child nf some
five year's old at that time. Mary, at
the age of 2si, was bought by Mr. Tow
sen (afterwards Major Trnvseu), who
was then just married. Nine children
were born into the family, the mother
dying when the last child was an in
fant In arms. So to Mary fell the care
of the children, and they could not
have fallen Into better hands. Her
life was given up to them. She never
married, affording almost the ouly
caso on record where the colored dam
sel has failed to take Unto herself a
better half. Some jears before the
war Mr. Towsen moved to Philadel
phia, tnking Mary with him. Of course
she was free upon crossing the Hue,
but her deep devotion to the family
kept her with them, and she returned
with them to the south. She had
cause to be proud of her little brood.
seven of w h ieh were boys, for they
grew iuto noble men and women.
When the civil war came it wtift with
au aching heart that "mammy" saw
her beloved boys don their soldier
clothes to leave her.
But she had no time for repining.
Those four years were full of unselfish
deeds for her. She was always nursing
the sick, taking the covering from her
owu bed that they might not go cold,
buying them dainties from her own
scant stock of monev.
Sleepless nights she watched by the
side of some poor, dying fellow, whose
last faint words were those of thanks
and blessings for his nurse. She made
from two to three hundred suits of
soldier clothes, sewing them for the
most part duriug her night watches by
At one time when the troops were
stationed at Manassas, before the first
battle there, she made a barrel nf
blackberry cordial, for the most part
I ticking theb-'iries with herown hands,
low those thirsty, wornout bovs did
cheer when tvat barrel arrived! The
story of an old colored woman having
in fit fe it for Idem was told. "Boys,u
said one poor fellow, "let's give her
three cheers." And cheer her they
Mammy was twice cheered by the
soldiers n't Manassas the second time
at the reception of some much-needed
clothes she made.
All this time her heart was bleeding
for her owu especial seveu. Before
the close of the third year there was
not one of them left. "It do seem."
she said on one occasion to Gen.
Mosbv, "dat de good Lord hab set His
mark'ob death upon them." They all
died in her arms.
All the boys made her tbe confidant
of their joys and woes alike, ever find
ing Iter a most sympathetic listener.
On one occasion mammy lost all of her
few remaining possessions while trav
eling from one town to another.
"Dey's wrapped in an old blue coun
terpane," she told one of the soldiers,
"and dar is a bottle of juach brandy
in de bundle. Ef yer finds der couu
terpane yer can hab de bottle."
It is needless to say that with such a
reward offered, most diligent search
was made, but without avail. The old
blue counterpane has never come to
Mifht. The soldier, who has now
chaiigcd iuto a portly judge, who
couuts his dollars by the teu thousands,
never meets mammy without saying
(with a twinkle in his blue eyes), "I
am still looking out for that blue coun
terpane, matumy, and remember, the
bottle's miue when I find iL"
After the war mammy went to live
with Major Tow sen's daughter, where
she has beeu ever since. She finds
much comfort in a new set of boys,
though they can never take the place
of her dear dead soldiers. The twin
bovs are her particular delight.
Mammy is over 90 now, but still
brisk, and looks quite equal to several
generations. Her life has iutleed been
fuil of good works, ever marked by a
loving, unselfish spirit. Philadelphia

An incident which is said to have

of use to some of our girl readers, says
the t'a-iruiiart Queen.
A young woman of high culture nnd
gentle breeding had been obliged to
earn her living as a governess nnd
grew impatient of the monotony of
her life aud its few chances of advance
ment. She fancied that she had great

She went to a well-known tragedian
and told him iter story and her ambi
tions. Now. the tragediaii happcued,
fortunately, to be a mau of much sense
and kindness of heart. He did uot
tell her that she lacked ability, know
ing that she would not believe him.
"You shall choose for yourself," he
said; "but you should see this fairyland
close at hand before you cuter it."
"I go to the tbeator every night,
monsieur!" she exclaimed.
"Ah, yes! Before the curtain! For
one month you shall have a seat be
hind the curtain. If at the end of that
time you wish to become an actress I
promise my aid to you."
A line from him to the stage man
ager procured for her a chair Iu the
wings. There she sat night after
night, not seeing the enchautmeut. the
fun, the brilliant, gay touches which
made a picture for the spectator-, but

Origin of Mermaid Stories.
The dugong, a species of whale found
abundantly iu the waters of both great
oceaus, but especially off the coast of
Australia in the Pacific, Is believed to
have furnished the slender basis upon
which all mermaid stories have been
founded. Its average length is from
eight to twenty feet. It has a hand
much resembliug that of the human
species, aud breathes by means of
lungs. It feeds upon submarine sea
weeds, and when wounded makes a
noise like a mad bull. Long hair in
the female species and hair and beard
in the male add to the resemblance of
the head and neck. The flesh of this
species of whale is used for food, and
is saia to nave tue navor 01 oacon,
mutton, or beef, according to the part
of the body from which the meat is
taken. New Orleans Picayune.

A Kins In a Tortoise-Shell.
, The eradle that a queen should
choose for her priueety Utile baby must
be a very grand affair, don't you think
sop Perhaps made of choice or costly
woods or even of a precious metal. In
either case It must, you thiuk, be most
beautifully shaped and perhaps carved
with the figures of sweet little cherubs,
watching over the favored mortal baby
as he sleeps softly amid his clouds of
line linen aud delicate lace.
This may all be. What made me
think of It was something that I heard
a traveler tell about within a few days.
This traveler had lately come from
France. While In that country he had
visited the town of Pau, amoug the
Pyrenees Mountains. In this town,
high up, looking over the valleys,
stands an old, old castle, dark and
gray and gloomy. It was built in the
oldun days wheu there was much fight
ing, and uobles and princes had to live
Iu castles, with walls made so thick
and strong to keep out their enemies
that the blessed sunlight was kept out
too. and the big rooms aud halls were
dark and dismal enough. Here in this
castle of Pau, in the year of 1653, said
the traveler, lived the old King of
Navarre, aud here, Iu this same year,
was born his grandson Henry, Priuce
of Navarre, afterward known the
world over as Henry the Great, King
of France aud Navarre. He was
called great uot ouly because he knew
how to head the armies of his king
dom, fighting his enemies, but because
he loved his people, aud tried to make
them happy aud prosperous as well as
So his people loved him. and after
his death they cherished everything
that had belonged to htm with the
freatest care. Here, In his castle of
au, Is still treasured the cradle In
which the royal baby was rocked to
It Is a cradle made all of tortoise
shell. Shouldn't you think It would break
very easily P It would if It were thin
and polished tortoise-shell, like a girl's
dainty bracelet, wnicn is almost as
britCo as glass; but there is little dan
ger of this royal cradle meeting any
such fate no more danger than if the
shell were still on the back of the tur
tle, its first owner! The shell is not
polished or altered In any way. It
was taken from the back of the big
sea-turtle (who had carried it so long,
aud thought himself so safe in his stout
shell-house), and was cleaned and
turned over on its back.
Then only a little blaukot was laid
In it, for the young Prince of Navarre
was not brought up delicately, and In
his very cradle wa taught to lie
wrapped In a rough blanket, instead
of ou soft cushions, amid luxurious
linen and lace.
The traveler did not tell the friend
with whom he was talking whether or
not the turtle-shell cradle was mounted
ou rockers, if uot, how could the
cradle have been rocked without giv
ing the poor little baby a most terrible
A little boy, who was walking with
the traveler and his friend, said that
he didn't think the little Pritfce Henry
had half so comfortable a time of it as
his own little baby brother at home;
and X shouldu't wonder if that were
true- But, perhaps, after all, it Isu't
good for babies to be quite no comfort
able. It may be that more babies
would grow up to be strong and hardy
men aud women if they were not
treated quite so tenderly at the first.

A Statement from Mrs. Fremont.
In a recent number of The Century
Mrs. Fremont gives the following ac
count of bow she balked an official at
tempt to delay General Fremont's sec
ond expetlitiou to the West:
"In the month of March, 1343. I
acco m pa u ied Mr. Frem o n t to St,
Louis, where the second expedition
was fitted out; that through, be left
for the frontier, where the men and
animals were gathered. Following
out my duly of secretary. I was ta
open the mail and forward to the camp
at Kaw Landiug. now Kansas City, all
that in my judgment required Mr.
Fremont's "attention. One day there
came for him an official letter from his
colonel, the chief of the Topographical
Bureau: It was an order recalling him
to Washington, whither he was direct
ed to return and explain why he had
armed his party with a howitzer; say
ing that it was a scientific, not a mili
tary expedition, and should not have
beeu so armed. I saw at once that
this would make delays which would
involve the overthrow of great plans,
aud I felt there was a hidden baud at
work. Fortunately my father was ab
sent from St. Louis, and X could act on
my instinct. Without telling any one
of the order X put it awav and hurried
off a messenger to Mr. Fremout one
of his men, Basil Lajeunesse, who was
to join him with the last things. I
feared a duplicate letter might have
been sent ou to the frontier; but the
river mail was verv irregular and
slow, and I charged Basil to make all
haste, for much depended on that let
ter. I wrote Mr. Fremont that he
must not ask why, but must start at
once, ready or not ready. The ani
mals could rest aud fatteu at Bent's
Fort. Oulv go.' There was a reason,
but he could not know it; my father
would take care of everything. And
as we acted together unqnestioningly,
he did go immediately. . . .
"Not until after I received thegood
by letter did I write in -answer to his
colonel who had sent the order of re
call. Then I wrote him exactly what
X had done; that I had not sent for
ward the order because it was given
on Insufficient knowledge, and to obey
it would break up the expedition; that
tbe journeys to. and from Washington,
with indefinite delays there, would lose
to tho animals the best season for
grass and throw them, underfed, into
the mountains in winter; that the coun
try of the Black feet aud other fierce
tribes had to be crossed, aud that Ind
ians knew nothing of the rights of
scieuce, but fought an wnues; mar.
these tribes were in number and the
party not fifty men. therefore the how
itzer was necessary; that as I knew a
military order, must be obeyed, I had
not let it be known to any one, but
hud hurried off the uartv.
"When my father returned he en
tirely approved of my wrong-doing,
and wrote to the Secretary of War
that he would bo responsible for my
act. and that he would call for a court
martial on the point charged against
Mr. Fremont. But there was never
anv further question of the wisdom of
his arming the party sunieienuy.

Accepting the theory nf astronomers
that our sun and the millions of other
suns were evolved from masses of nebn
lous matter, we should like to know
how the earth and the rest of our sun's
planetary brood came iuto existence.
The Bible tails us someLhing about the
earth's Iiifauc3; and inferentlally about
the other planets. "The earth was
without form and void," we are told.
There was no division of land or water
-nothing but chaos; This agrees with
well-known scientific facts. Geology
takes us back to the time when land
ami water began to take form as we
see them now.
But ae should like to know some
thing about the earth's historv farther
back than the Bible and geofogy take
us. We are satisfied with the evidence
as to Its childhood, but when and
where was our dear old earth bornP

In which masses of nebulous matter
began to concentrate and begin the
initial work of making a star system
after the manner of our solar system.
The attraction ot nebulas, as we
know by analogy, would cause a rotary
motion, parts nearest the nucleus mov
ing with the greatest rapidity, and
other parts moving more slowly in
proportion to their distance from the
center. Such a nebulst as this would
extend billions of miles In space. Tbe
different velocities of the parts would
naturally produce spirals, and as the
process of condensation went ou the
nucleus would become a comparative

spirals, at variou distances therefrom,
would, by their own attraction, be

In course of time, perhaps millions
of years, these rings would gradually
draw together and assume the spheri

shape of all heavenly bodies. If this
supposition be true, the earth was

the sun settled dowu iuto comparative

has recently died at or near Pasadena.
Tbe attorney told the Lewiston gentle

Is heroic along the better line of hero

surviving son a memento of John

looking up the affairs the attorney

AN INDIAN LEGEND.
Tne Tradition ConerNn BInlna ftasv
Pnint and thn Btanlton lalnnd.
The folk lore of the Indians of Michi
gan Is almost a thing of the past, but
few of their legends being preserved at
the present time, lo be sure, tnere
are a few of the old natives, whose
locks have been whitened bv the recur
ring frosts of many winters, who pre
serve a few of the traditions of their
tribes. Such a one is Wien-da-goo-iso
an aged brave, whose huge proportions
gave hiin the name mentioned, which.
trans l a teu into fengnsn, means giant.
Beiofz in a communicative mood a few
days ago he related one of bis tribal
traditions concerning tne mam ion
Islands and Sleeping Bear Point. He
said that many years ago, before the
primeval woods oi Michigan ana Wis
consin had been invaded by the ruth
less white man. the wild animals of
the forests were possessed of spirits, and
that the medicine men of tbe tribes
were able to talk with them.
Once upon a time a huge she-bear
was compelled to desert the shores of
Wisconsin and with her two cubs take
to the waters of Michl-game, the great
lake, on account of tires that were
raging in the wilderness. The heat
was so Intense that the mother bear
concluded not to return to the Wis
consin shore, but struck boldly ont for
the banks of Michigan. When nearly
across the lake tbe two cubs sank from
exhaustion and were drowned. The
old bear swam about the spot for
hours, bnt her cubs rose not again.
Finally weariness compelled her to
seek the shore, reaching which she
climbed a huge bluff and lay down to
sleep. That bluff was Sleeping Bear
foint, ana xrom that a ay to mis ine
spirit of the old bear has remained oa
that blnff, and from the spot where
sank the two cubs there gradually
arose two beautiful islands, the North
and South Maui ton. or, aa it means in
the vernacular of the Ottawa- Spirit
islands. . Tbe spirits of the cubs are
supposed to abide on the islands, and
that of the mother bear keeps a con
stant and loving watch over the homes
of her loved ones, where they are
bound to remain until terrestial .time
shall be no more, when they will be
transported to the Indian heaven, or
happy bunting grounds, not as victims
of the huntsmen, but as guardians of
the Indians who love them.
On stormy nights tbe Indians say
the spirit of the mother bear moans
and cries from her post on the great
sand blnff, in anxiety for the fate of
her young, the shores of whose home
are being assailed by the treacherous
wav?s which caused their death.
Call for a Hair-Cent.
The 1-2 cent has become a necessity in
trade, and the American Newsdealers'
association will petition congress to
establish a 1-2-cent coinage. On 1-cent
papers the dealer's profit is only 1-2 a
cent, and in many instances tbe 1-3
cent is lost because there is no coin of
this value. An appreciable loss arises
from this source in the course of m
year. It is a favorite way in marking
retail goods of all kinds to rate them
in such a way that the 1-2 cent comes
in, and in every case goes to the dealer.
This odd cent in a large establishment
certainly amounts to several dollars
daily, while the buyers lose and the
seller gains, for want of the 1-2 cent
coin. The infinitesimal divisions of
industry and retail supplied long ago
made these small coins a necessity in
Europe. A centime is a lifth of a cent.
Switzerland has a centime piece, Bel
gium a 2-centime piece, Germany has

ing zor compensation ior property
taken or destroyed by Federal troops
than au officer sets to work to hunt
through these voluminous archives to
find evidence to prove the "disloyalty"
of the petitioner. Often the search is
successful, and not infrequently it hap
pens that the claimant is confronted
with writings of his own which go to
show that he was in full accord with
