Paul's conduct was set forth in its true light, the identity of the photoj graph, related, and the note to him confessed. In the joy of reconciliation the mother hail not a word of reproof even for that crowning 1 impropriety. Before this last was hardly out of the girl's mouth, a servant appeared bringing Paul's letter, the girl giving it unopened to her mother. Its delicacy and gentlemanly tone completed the favorable impression already created in Mrs. Lebourgeois' mind by a revulsion of feeling 1 . "So lie's cousin to Colonel White, that tine- looking 1 military gentleman, whom I took such a fancy to when he was pointed out to me by Jennie Hyde, the other day. He looked the Englishman to perfection. They do say Jennie is epris of him, and he of her. And then the Count likes him so much, too; says he is the most elegant gentleman he has met in the city. Why should we not have them all here to dinner? If Mr. Terry w Colonel White's cousin, and Frank's friend, I must do something 1 to make it right with him before Frank comes. Let's see. To-night we dine with, the Mortons, *here we shall tnaet the Colonel and can explain our invitation before h» haa callad on the ground of having 1 to aak his eeoain as Frank's. Meud. That oaB ba aaaaly arranged, and now ror tlie aate—" inrs. Lebonr- peois consulted her engagement book —"to-morrow is Thursday, and we are engaged that evening for the Connt's theater party. Friday night is church night, which even the Colonel could not tempt Jennie Hyde to miss—what a dear little religious thing she is! Saturday night. What do you say to it, Lou?" "Oh, mamma, you know I would b« only too glad." Kisses and tableau. So a fresh surprise \v:is soon tu crowd out the last :n Paul's .•xpeni-nce. Paul wns iii-vrr more surprised in hi* life thau wlien. oil I hr following Friday, hi- rei-eivt'd Mrs, 1.1; bourgeois' note. It w;is himiled to him by the Colonel, in whose rare it had been sent, as Paul had—In- i.hon thought—almost superfluously hinted in his vreil- CUJTCRIIO AN BSTT VIAL. remembered answer to Miss Lebour- ois' generous epistle. It reminded him of something 1 that had escaped him entirely—that Miss Lebourgeois' bill-dress was still unwritten «p for the Orb. Other things had driven entirely from his memory that unlucky yet most lucky garment in whose train had followed so many startling consequences to himself. That gown should be neglected no longer. He made a minute of it and later wrote it up, handing the copy to Abe, without a word. No comment came from Abe, nor had his memory been previously jogged. Paul had been treated with great respect at the Orb office, handled in fact like a basket of egg's, ever since Archer took him up. But to return to the dinner invitation. The Colonel's jolly face was on a broad grin that Friday noon when Paul's visage came within his ranffe of vision. "What a sly dog 1 — oh, what a sly dog!' 7 he exclaimed, holding the cote aloft, and removing his pipe from his mouth. •What a sly dog it is' So you would try to cut out a Connt, would you, and cot give your aged relative, this battered veteran, a hint of what you were up to? No wonder you fought shy of de Fooliers the other night at the club, and would not join him in a bottle of wine, you rascal, writing 1 billet doiix to his especial conquest and posting them right under his stupid nose. ^<o need to introduce you newspaper fellows. You make an excuse that you want to jret«=Jto_their finery, soft soap taenx, and then start a correspondenofc VThat * sly dog it is!" and the jolly Colonel reached for his cane and poked Paul in the ribs. It was a sword-cane, and the Colonel unsheathed it, and presented the note to Paul on point, making 1 him a profound military salute. P'aul was nonplused and nettled. Where had the Colonel picked up what he did know, and how m.nch did ht know? Th« note was evidently frori the Lebourgeoises. The same frown- vur lions extended their tails aloft os -*THE DEA80N*- As seai. but the handwriting was another's, probably the mother's. She had sten the outside at least of his own note, must have been acquainted with its contents, or else how did she happen to address hire as he requested? It was probably a sharp rebuke and a curt request that he should cease from taking lurtner familiarities with her daughter. Paul met the Colonel's jolly laugh with a. frown and a blush. "What the devil are you giving me?"' was his cross rejoinder, and he thrust the note into his pocket. "Oh, read it, man, read it, and smooth out that angered visage," said the Colonel. "It's an invitation to dinner, and a demmed good dinner, too, if all accounts are true—a bid that half the swells in St Louis would oromenade up Washington avenue in last year's trousers to get for themselves. You needn't be afraid of me nor of the note. I know all there is in it, and it's to your credit, b« gad." So Paul sat down and went througb it without more delay. It was a very polite note requesting the pleasure of Paul's eompany to dinner the next evening at half-past 7 o'clock. There waa en apology in it for the "misapprehension" under irhich the write* and Mr. Terry had last met, and another for making 1 him to come before his cousin, Gal White, had had a chanca to bring him to call, engagements being 1 •» numerous all around. At the bottom was a postscript signed "L. L." It read: ' : Of course you will not fail us. If you are real polite and complimentary, perhaps you will get a sight of that ball dress you are so much interested in—and then you would 'score a scoop,' which slang, according to the Colonel—don't tell him—is the correct phrase." "I'll tell you who is to bellirre," said Trie Colonel, as Paul glanced up. after rciiiiiny his note. ''Mrs. Lebourg-eois look me quite into her confidence about. I you. the other evening. Jt II be a | ilriiiine£ snug 1 little family party, and ! id-mined complimentary, begad. There's you and myself, to oegin right of course, and the Count, to end wrong—for you. Tlu-n, besides the Lebourgeois ladies, there is their intimate friend. Jennie Hyde, as dear a little saint and flirt as this city of much theology can boast. A right bower Tor all the charities and a firm believer in predestination—in her predestination to take every man she meets iuto camp. 1 sometimes think that I am predestinated to save her from her otherwise predestinated fate to marry a sallow, sprindle-legged, dyspeptic, solemn, veritable preacher of predestination from a genuine Presbyterian pulpit—in ;ill probability a widower of titty., with ten predestinated children to be pages and maids in the ceremony, be gad. 1 ' ".From your account that would not be a bad case of predestination," retorted Paul, as he sat down, borrowed some paper, and wrote off a note of acceptance. Paul had no trouble in getting 1 relieved of duty for Saturday evening. "Certainly, certainly,'" said Abe. And Paul salved his conscience by thinking that he would sec the Count, and have another look at the mysterious ring. Perhaps he should see the locket, too. As he left the Orb office on the Friday evening after asking to be excused, he brushed against Archer. "Use your eyes well to-morrow night, 1 ' whispered that mysterious individual as they went by. Did Archer know everything? It was with verv different feelings that Paul presented himself at the Lebourgeois mansion that Saturday evening from those which he carried out the afternoon of his hasty exit He glanced over into the square as lie went by, and thought he eould pick out the very bench on which h« had vat so disconsolately. —1'lie world iras in a tfom au's mood, A half 'twill smiles und tears n slood." he repeated over to himself.' "And it j finall decided to smile," he added also 1 to himself. I Tin- sume polite servant ushered him ! in. ai:ii this time did not ask for his card. In the dressing-room he found tin-Colonel and the Count. Two small diamond studs glittered^'n the Count's shirt- bosom, the ring which Archer had described adorned his little ringer, and pendant from a black ribbon which served as a watchguard hung the locket on whose surface writhed in relief many serpant duplicates of the! ring. Was Archer putting something! up on him, anyhow? Was there ever- j an Englishman named Eobert Graham? j Did he ever own similar rings? Did ho j have a valet? Did he eyer go to Atis- ! tralia, and was he murdered there? The Count displayed his curious orna- j ments with all the sang 1 fi-oid of a rightful owner, and he looked the French nobleman to uerfection. j The gentlemen greeted Paul' cordially, the Count especially so. "I am inexpressibly delighted, monsieur," he said, "to meetyou again, not only on : account of yonr reputation for clever wit, which I assure you precedes yon ' everywhere, but as the friend of my; very dear friend, Mr. Frank Lebour- •eois, command my serrices. They shall Always be lours." The centLemen •esccncied to Efce drawing-room as soon as Paul was ready, and the party lingered but a moment there to pay their devoirs before they passed into the dining-room. The Count took out Mrs. Lebourgeois, the Colonel Miss Hyde, while favoring fortune gave Paul Miss Louisa. Paul sat between mother and daughter. All traces of stiffness had vanished from the mother's bearing-, and no hint of their former encounter could be seen in her greeting of Paul The number was so small that no attempt at decoration had been made. In addition to the flowers at each plate, a cushion of exquisite roses adorned the center of the table. The immense candelabra, from which the light of many clusters of candles shed a soft radiance on the scene, had for their base the same frowning lions which guarded the gates—they were the most striking object in view. Tin conversation turned upon jewelry. The Colonel was soon telliug a story to Miss Hyde, which he had been broken off in the last time they met, and which attracted everybody's attention. He had heai'd it recently when he was in New York. It had happened at a dinner party given by one of the Astors. The hostess had a very rare ring which she had picked up abroad. Her next neighbor expressed a desire to examine it. and she handed it to him. The next neighbor then took it, and the next It never got back to the hostess. Everybody at the table rose, the ladies shook the wrinkles out of .. their gowns. All eves eagerly scanned the floor and searched every cranny. It was no use. It was never afterward seen by Mrs. Astor. "Some guest must have stolen it." concluded the Colonel. "How perfectly horrid!" exclaimed Miss Hyde. "Do you really expect us to believe that?" asked Miss Lebourgeois 'incredulously. "Of course a woman was charged with the theft, they always are in such a case." was Mrs. Lebonr- geois' comment. "You state the fact, though it was not a prejudice of sex." said the Colonel: "for those who think her guilty were the other ladies present. She turned out afterward to be a kleptomaniac. Her husband then searched all her belongings for tnat ring 1 , but it never turned up." There was a general hush. Erery- body seemed to be taking in the enormity of-her offense. "What curious jewelry that is which the Count wears!" said Paul in an .aside to Miss Labourgeois. "How enermous that ring and locket are! Do most Frenchmen wear such extraordinary jewelry? You know, I have never been abroad." "No, 1 fancy not," said Miss Lebourgeois. "You know. I went out very little over there, 1 was a mere school girl, lint there is one odd thing about it. I never .saw either the locket or the ring before, either over there or here. They must be family heirlooms brought out this evening to do us special honor. .M\- curiosity is going to get the better of my politeness. We all know the Count so well. "Count de l-'ooliers,'' she said, addressing him personally, "you an: liot afraid of falling a virtim to Mrs. Astor's fate, are yon'.' Could I be so rude as to ask you for a. closer look at that curious ring you wear aad a. hint at its history?"' "Ah", mademoiselle." said the Count, 'I wish I could gratify you without fear of innocently inflicting 1 an injury on you. . But that is impossible. There is more than one tragedy connected with this ring, many I make no doubt in the dark days of Venetian history when we know not who were its wearers. Just beneath that fiery tongue a lion's claw of steel is concealed; which, by the slightest pressure in shaking- a friend's hand, can be made to inflict a fatal scratch—for that lion's claw is charged with a deadly poison. My father wore the ring one night at a dinner like this, and inadvertently wounded the hostess, Age had weakened the poison,but only the skill of one who rivals the great Pasteur himself saved that lady's life. She has never fully recovered her health, I had intended to have the ring thoroughly disinfected ofefore coming 1 to America. But it .vas overlooked. To-night is the first time I have had it on for years. You see I wear it on my left hand, so as to avoid n.11 r i<L- t.o mv frion-'s. To-m'T' 11 * iust oefore 1 let fray hotel, I found that my valet had blundered into bringing the ring and locket out. I did not care to intrust them to him: for if 1 warned him the more likely he was to examine them and receive a scratch. So I wore them myself as the less of two evils. The locket," the Count added, taking it off and passing it to Miss Lebourgeois. "is curious also. It is opened by a sort ofcombina- tioo lock, whose secret J have noted away, but do not now recall. You are at perfect liberty, mademoiselle, to try vour best to open it. or any one else here. But I assure you in advance that you will be baffled." The locket was passed to everybody and everybody tried in vain to open it. The Count smiled a mysterious smile, as he replaced it on the ribbon. The result of the incident was that jewelry was the only subject discussed, the rare Indian necklace which Miss Lebourgeois was to wear at the Southern, ball being sent for and generally admired. . The gentlement lingered but a few moments over the cordials and brandy after the ladies had retired. They soon joined them in the library, where coffee was served and smoking permitted. As it was Saturday night, tne little party broke up early. The Count and Paul were driven to the former's hotel, from which, after another bottle, the Count sent Paul home in his carriage. What troubled Paul most, as he rode along pas': the gas lamps, was why the Count should have lied about never having 1 worn the rinjf before; for he •««d It on when Paul encountered him %t the club. _ (To be Contained.) SULTAN'S EUNUCH DEAD. He W»» X»t P«-«-tty. hnt \Viin RlcH Mjnd H«* tirent Influrncr. Abdul Hamid has just sustained a severe loss through the sudden death of Yaver-Aga, the kizlar agassy or chief of the eneuchs of the imperial seraglio, who throughout the present reign had been one of the most influential figures in Turkish politics, a personage to whose advice many of the most shrewd aad clever devices o£ the Sultan in dealir.g with the foreign powers were jusuy attributed. By virtue of his strange office he was entitled to be addressed as your Highness, and ranked immediately next to the Grand Vizier, and before either the Cabinet Ministers or the great military dignitaries, even Khedive Abbas of Egypt and Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria, the latter in his capacity of Turkish Governor-General of Eastern Roumelia, being compelled at Constantinople to yield the pas to the hideously ugly monster, tor Yaver-Aja was frightful to behold, being 1 almost 6 feet 6 inches high, coal black, with a small head, narrow shoulders, an enormous stomach and the squeaky and shrill voice peculiar to his class. His official title was '.hat. of "keeper of the keys of paradise," the Oriental idea of paradise being a place peopled with houris as lovely as those of the Sultan's harem. Yaver-Aga bad been for the past two and twenty years in absolute control of the latter, the despotic master of the whole feminine portion of the household of the Sultan and responsible 10 the latter for the safekeeping and fi- rielity and the discipline of every one of the women, no matter whether Sultanas or mere odalisques. He was probably the only man in the whole of the Ottoman Empire whom the Padishah implicitly trusted, and whose advice was usually directed against the European powers. Yaver-Aga was a Mohammedan of the most fanatic and bigoted type, and there is much at Constantinople to indicate that he was one of the principle instigators of the Armenian massacres. As chief eunuch of the harem, it was his duty to attend to the punishment of those vvonisc who had offended the Sultan, and many hundreds of fair ones have, by his directions, been sewed into sacks and pitched, under the cover of night, into the swift-flowing waters of the Bosporus. There are several hi»*dred eunuchs employed in the imperial seraglio, two-thirds of them coal black and tbe remainder white. But they constitute a form of luxury which is slowly hut surely disappearing from modern Mo- bamrnedan life, as is also polygamy, most of. the leading Turkish dignitaries, pashas and^ beys at Constantinople nowadays contenting themselves with one wife, by which matrimonial rule they not only comply with the requirements of their marriages but try to avoid "all tliose harem intrigues, jealousies, and disputes that constitute the curse of domestic life in Mohammedan countries. The chief eunuch of. tbe Sultan's eldest married daughter, Princess Zekie, has been nominated to succeed Yaver-Aga as the second dignitary of the realm. Yaver's colossal fortune, part of which, he owed lo tbe prerogative of his office ol charging 10 per cent, on everything entering and leaving the seraglio, and to the costly gifts he received from native and foreign dignitaries, has beo* confiscated by the Sultan, the Aga having left no heirs. Sl.iN Tvvo HeartM Dott r t Bent an One. A colored man giving his name as "Dr. William King" has been mystifying Pennsylvania doctors. He enjoys the distinction of having two hearts wMich he can control in their positions and beats at will. He has been examined by several Bradford county doctors and they have been nonplussed. King carries a certificate from a Philadelphia medical college stating that he has been operated 'upon by physicians to determine the freak nature of his heart, and big scars across his body are a further testimony to his truthfulness. Apparently King has two sets of ribs, one outside and overlapping the other, and by stroking his chest and by muscular contortions one set of rifis can be drawn down to cover his stomach. His two hearts, one on each side, ca.n be plainly felt to beat. Listening to the right heart, and with a hand on the left puise, the observer is startled to have the pu'.se stop and the heart beats continue, yet such is the case. Jelfcrnon'K Paper* I>i»coT<rred. In the course of the removal of the books and papers of the Congressional Library to the new building in Washington, an unexpected find has been made in the shape of a large box of papers written by Thomas Jefferson. These were found stored away in a little room next the entrance to the library, which had been under lock and key for many years. They are entirely public papers, a note among them stating that all private papers with the lot had been, returned to the writers or contributors. It is believed that these particular papers came to the Congressional Library through. John Randolph. The papers have l>een transferred to the State Department, •n*ere they -will be examined and filed away with other State papers by Librarian Allen. Saved. It was at an afternoon tea and the crush was simply horrid. It seemed that nothing would save the few men present, when one quick-witted -woman exclaimed: "Ladle*, please remember there are gentlemen in the crowd!" It was all that preserved the poor from a horrible fate. The cold chills of fear run up and down the back of the bravest man when he looks down tbe barrel of a death- j dealing Winchester in the hands of a man who means "shoot" Every hour and every minute men face death in a more frequent and equally certain form- death in the guise of that deadliest enemy y of mankind — consumption. Out of | all the tens of thousands who yearly die from consumption 98 per cent, could be . saved. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is an almost unfailing cure if taken in the earlier stages of the disease. It will cure consumption and all allied diseases, as bronchial, throat aad nasal affeo- tions. It cures by (join? to first principles. A man's body starves a long time before consumption attacks him. The tissues of his lungs starve for lack of sufficient nourishment. They become inert and half dead and then are attacked by the baccflli of consumpti^pc. The "Golden Medical Discovery " restores the long-lost appetite; . it strengthens the weak stomach and corrects the impaired digestion; it promotes tbe flow of digestive juices and fecilitatf* the assimilation of the Hfe-givinft element* of the food into the blood. When the blood is pure and rich, old inert tissues are torn down, carried off and excreted, aad new, healthy, muscular tissues replace them. It allays inflammation of the mn- cous membranes, soothes the cough, facilitates expectoration, and deepens the breathingr, supplying the system with a much needed stock of oxygen. It drives out all impurities and disease germs. Medicine dealers sell it. 11 1 was first taken nearly two years ago with choking and aching 1 in mv throat," writes Mra. D. 7..
