The result of reading- the lettwr thrust upon Paul and Frank the discussion of a question which both had hitherto carefully avoided—Paul's relations to Frank's sister. Paul at once owned up that lie had long loved Louisa, but owing to the difference in fortune had felt delicate about pressing- his suit. Frank assured him that no such reason should for a moment stand in his way. Frank added that he had never talked the matter OTor with his sister, but he felt certain, from numerous little sig-ns which could not escape a brother's eye, that Paul's feelings were fully reciprocated by Louisa. The result was a full and frank brotherly talk, which lasted until Ion* after midnight. Paul, with a delicacy which raised him in Frank's estimation, secured from tho latter a promise that he would not influence his sister at all, but would leave her entirely free to follow the dictate* of her heart. One thing Frank insisted on, both to his mother and to Paul— his sister should read for h»r»elf the letter from Robert Graham. Harrowing as the letter must be to her, it was a letter addressed to her, and •he had a right to know it* contents. She had already recovered from the first shock, and was asking to »ee the letter. After midnight her mother carried it to her, having- explained to her that its contents would be very painful. The girl nerved herself for its perusal and went through it, so her mother reported later to Frank and Paul, who were anxiously awaiting the news without uttering a sound. When she had finished it, she simply said: "How cruel—what a cruel world! Poor young- man! perhaps it is best as it i«." How naturally things come about in this world on which we spend so much anxious trouble and planning! If Paul had known how easy the path of love was to end for him at the g-oal of felicity, he would not have lain awaka the few i/sui* left him for sleep after tl» coui«*«w» with Frank was over. Haggard and circle-eyed, from much tossing, he entered the private parlor of the party to find Miss La- bourgeois there alone. Hardly knowing what he said, in faot unconscious of how great a departure it was, he exclaimed, on the impulse of feeling-: •Oh, Louisa!" And she, equally unconscious of what she was doing-, exclaimed; "Oh, Paul!" And Paul, needing no further invitation, took her in his arms. After they had become a little used to the new situation, Louisa confessed that had he asked her at any time during his visit to Q.uassapausr island she imist, probably, have given her consent. The eyes of the madman saw farther and clearer than the eyes of the lover. Soon Frank and Mrs. Lebourgeois came in, and added tha seal of their hearty approval to the ambition of the young- man and the choice of the young girl. Despite the shadow of the suicide, it was a very happy party which sat down at the family luncheon table. The funeral of poor Robert Graham was attended by Frank and Paul and by a lai-g-e concourse of villagers The loved church of his adoption had to refuse him the last solemn rites forfeited by his act of suicide; but Father Lafitte and the village priest were on the outskirts of the crowd, to testify as Individuals to the high estem in which they held him as a man, despite the final tragedy. They laid him to rest under a quaint oak, which divided with the old chateau of his devotion the honor of shadowing his grave. A simple shaft bearing the date of his birth and death was placed above the grave. Tha will of Robert Graham was as he described it. It left all his property to Paul, without, however, mentioning any reason for selecting him as legatee. The language of the will was simply, "my friend, Mr, Paul Terry." Of course Paul would not except the money, except as a trust. It had been too deeply tainted with tragedies for that. Eventually he turned it over to the Roman Catholic church to found a convention in the grounds of the old chateau, the only condition being that the castle should be maintained for all time as Robert Graham had left it. Visitors who now come to Tremblay are shown over the venerable structure by quiet-faced nuns, who tell almost under their breath fragments of tha story here first given to the world as it really occurred. Some two weeks after the funeral there was the quietest sort of a wedding at the American chapel in Paris. The only persons present besides the bride and th« bridegroom. we*e Frank and his mother, and Archer, \vho had been cabled for^by Paul. . The hanar pair went" on ~S weffiiinf" trip "to TB* Holy Land, and later visited India a>4 China. Daring- a part of their travels they were with a larg-e owner of Los- don Times »tock, who took a great fancy to Patd. The result was that h* had'hardly reached America kf ain on the homeward trip, and had once more passed the frowning lions' heads guarding the entrance of the oldLeboarf eoU mansion in St Louis, when a Vtter came from the' XmfUihmao, of- fcrinir Paul an editorial K>*ttieD gn fce'^Thuhderer." It was" the vJew of the management that a more intelligent comment on American news wa« desirable, owing to the incraasinjf closeness of the relations of the two countries. Paul accepted the place, and if Americans abroad distinguish the less ignorant way in whicft home matters are now treated in the London press, they will know to whom to attribute it Paul and his wife soon returned to London, to live in a fashionable West End quarter and to entertain in truly cosmopolitan spirit the best and brightest representatives of the two countries. But they stayed in St. Louis long enough to see Col. White surrender to the fair Miss Hyde—to bo witnesses officially of the capitulation, "Even Napoleon bad to surrender at last," the Colonel said. "If he had had the privilege of meeting my wife he would not have been so long about It, be gadl" The madman was not lorgotten. Paul's second boy was named Eobert Graham Terry. THE EN1X ST. AGNES EYE. A merry group of happy, eareleai girls they were, all on their way to the old mansion on the hill, there to peep into the famous lopking-g-laas in the reception-room; for it was St. Agnes' eve, and in the wonderful mirror they could see a lover's face. They had obtained the key from the black steward, who lived about two miles from the Eedwood place, and •took chSrge of it in his master's absence. As they walked on and tha dark mass of;building's loomed up before them, they remembered the old man's words: "Lor, missy, don't go! Day say it's hanted, an' nothin' good conies to de person as looks in dc glass." They had laughed him down at the time, but now they crept closer to each other, ashamed to confess the fear each felt. Arrived at the mansion, the silent little group entered alow gateway and passed through to the garden, once so beautiful, but now a mass of tang-led weeds and undergrowth, they opened the old-fashioned door, with its huge brass knocker, and reached a gloomy corridor, wnere the echoes of their footsteps came back to them through the darkness. Pausing a moment before a doorway through which a. few stray moonbeams came, Alice Gray, a sprightly girl, with laughing blue eyes, asked; "Who will enter the charmed place? Are you afraid, and shall we turn baok?" "No, no!" rather faintly cried two 01 tare*. "Maud, you said yo'j did not beliere 1m »uc1i Bomsente; com* aca snow «» that you do not." Maud. Lovell, the girl addreseefl, •teppsd forward. Her brown eyes weire large and dark with excitement. "No," she answered, "I am nai »fraid, for I am sure we shall see nothing-. I will enter at once." She opened the door as she spoke. "O, don't!" exclaimed Clara War*. "I am frightened." "We were only in jest; don't go any further," added Alice. "Nonsense, girls! I am going on with the mummery," said Maud. "But you may all peep into the room first." By the bright moonlight they saw a large and beautiful apartment. Handsome lace curtains, yellow with, age, hung before the windows. The floor was of stained oak, with Persian rug» thrown here and there. There was an old-fashioned fireplace, in which reited a log ready to be lighted. Above thi» was a handsomely carved mantel, orer which hung a curiously shaped mirror. Standing on the threshold, the girls gave one long sigh of admiration. Then the door closed, and Maud wa» alone. She advanced toward the ire- place, struck a match and applied it to the light wood under the log. Then, as the blue flame shot up, and the fire cracked and burned, she slowly repeated- "Suint Agnes, be a friend to me, [—: In this gift I ask of thee: Let me this night my true love see." Raising her eyes to the glass, over which a thin film had gathered, she saw it slowly clear, then the faint outline of a head appeared, growing more and more distinct, until there was revealed the face of a man with deep thoughtful gray eyes and dark hair. Almost instantly it disappeared behind the mist. For a moment Maud was dumb with terror and surprise. Then, running to the door, she cried: "Oh, girls, I have seen something Have any of you played a trick en me?" Each declared her innocencn, and amid many exclamations all we>nt to look in the glass. But the roooa now filled with, smoka, and conld be seen. Instantly questions assailed Man*? on every side. | "How did he look?" \ "Do you know hia:?" \ "Was he handsome? Describe Boll tremfcUn* with «oit««Bt. <*rl comnllea. JHeanwliHe, some one had opened the windows, and, as the smoke gradually disappeared the glss» cleared. Then, to the surprise of all, they plainly saw the face Maud had described. "How strange! We can see it too!" cried one. "I wonder who he. is!" said another. "There is our knight, girls," cried Alice, who had been looking around the room. "We oujrht to have taken him out of the way before Maud tried the charm," she added. And there, sure enough, hung a picture, which, being opposite the glass, had been reflected in it. There was a general cry of disappointment. "Then he is not real, after all! And the looking-glass has no supernatural power'" exclaimed Clara. "I never thought it had; you know I did not believe in it from the first," •aid Mand. "But you fancied the face was real?" "Only for a moment. I felt surfl there was some natural explanation of the apparent phenomenon—as there always is, girls, in such cases. Let us never forget this when inclined to believe in the marvelous," "Another superstition exploded!" cried Alice. "Come, let us go home and vent our disappointment by laughing at others as credulous as ourselves." "Agreed!" cried all; and with many a laughing word and jest they left the old mansion in possession of its familiar shadows. Camphor Hinders Seed Growth. The alleged power of camphor to awaken seeds or stimulate their germination has been shown by the experiments of M. Henry de Varigny to have no real existence. Various kinds of seeds were sown in sand saturated with water containing camphor, as advised by horticulturists, and the ^germination of all was slower, instead of more rapid, than that of similar seeds in water without camphor. Germination was often retarded bv camphor vapor in the air, the water having no camphor. Knighthood for Women. Two orders of knighthood for women have been instituted in Great Britain during her majesty's reign, viz.: the P.oyal Order of Victoria and Albert, consisting of four classes, the first two for royalties, and the third and fourth for' peereses and ladies in attendance on the Queen, and the Imperial Order of the Crown of India, founded in 1873 for royal ties and the wives and relatives of Indian Princes and high Indian officials. Jfon-Sinokerg Live Longer. The Medical News says the records of Yale college during- the past eight years show that the non-smokers are 20 percent taller than the smokers, 25 per cent heavier, and had 66 per cent more lung capacity. In the last graduating class at Amheret college the nonsmokers have gained in weight 24 per cent over the smokers; in height, 37 oer jent; in chest girth, 42 per cent, and in lung capacity, 8.36 cubic inches.

WHAT THE POWERS OWB., Enormous Debt* Belnj Pll«d TJp by European Countries A leading British statistician has recently compiled a number of interesting figures bearing upon the national debts owed by the leading powers of the globe, says the Atlanta Constitution. To make use of some of these figures it appears that in 1S76 the indebtedness of the various powers ranked as follows: France, $4,500,000.000; Great Britain, $3,900.000,000; the United States, $2.400,000.000; Italy. J1.910,- 000,000; Austria-Hungary, $1,910,000,000; Spain, $1,875.000,000; Russia, $1,700,000,000, and Germany, $1.000,000,000. At the present time these same powers, with respect to their national debts, rank in the following order: France, $6,400,000.000; Great Britain, $3,225,000,000; Austria-Hungary, $3,310,000,000; Italy, $2,570,000,000; Russia, $2,500,000,000; Spain, $1.765,000,000; the United States, $1,445,000,000, and i Germany, $425,000,000. During the past twenty years the debts of France. Austria-Hungary, Russia and Italy have, increased, while those of Great Britain, the United States, Germany and Spain have -decreased. With respect to the debt of Spain it must be observed that up to the time of the Cuban uprising she had succeeded in reducing it considerably; and that, in spite of the heavy obligations entailed upon her by recent military campaigns, she is still able to show a smaller debt than In 1S76. The debt of Franca shows an increase of $1,900,000,000;. that of Austria-Hungary, an increase of $1,100,000,000, and that of Italy an increase of $620,000,000. The .largest decrease during this same period of time is credited to the United States, whose debt at the present time reductions are as follows: Great Britain, $675,000,000; Germany, $575,000,000, and Spain, $110,000,000. France's extraordinary debt is due largely to the extensive military and naval outfits vhich that power has endeavored to maintain during the past few years; and the extravagant habits of the people may also have something to do with it. As to the reduction of the national debt of this country, it has been accomplished through the exercise of rigid economy; and but for the outrageous pension frauds perpetrated upon tha government, it might be much smaller than it is at present. MOT* hatband Imagine* til at hie wife m . . healthy and strong, when she is really enduring- in silence almost unbearable tortures. She meet* him at the door on hi* return from work or bun- ness with a smile and a kiss. To be sure, she looks a little white and pallid, but she is vivaciou* and cheerful in his presence, and he doea not realize that aoythiag; is wrong 1 . If he had but come home during the middle of the day, he would have found, instead of the cheerful wife, a weak, sickly, nervous invalid, with headache, pains in the back, "stitches" in the side, burning and &r*K- fjing down sensations and utter despondency and melancholy. IH almost every case of this kind the woman is really suffering: from weakness and disease of tbe distinctly feminine organism. Frequently she does not realize; her own condition. If she does, she shrinks from undergoing the "ejcamina- tions" and "local treatments" insisted upon by the average physician. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the medicine needed by women who suffer in this way. It acts directly on the sensitive or- pans concerned and makes them strong, healthy and vigorous. It allays inflammation, heals ulceration, soothes pain and tones and builds up the shattered nerve*. It transforms weat, sickly, nervous, despondent invalids into happy, healthy wives and competent mothers. It fits for wife- 'hood and motherhood. It makes "examinations " unnecessary. Honest dealers do> not suggest substitutes for a little added profit to be realized thereon.

"Hoist by his own petard" will cease to be the expression used to describe a certain variety of accident after the peculiar calamity which befell a San Francisco vaquero the other day. It will be "caught in his own lasso" instead. George Slankard, one of tbe most fa- Up-to-Date Sweep. They are probably becoming few and far between, the American tourists who remember the old-fashioned "ramonaur" of the French capital, tha thick-set and hirsute Savoyard, who went about shouting "A r-r-r-ramoneur les ch'minees! V-o-il-Ma le r-r-r-ra- moneur!" accompanied by a little boy FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE, from his -own native mountains, whom he sent up the narrow flues while ae "bossed" tha job downstairs. The law having mercifully interfered with his inhumane methods, his mechanical ingenuity soon led him to contrive a "roman" consisting of a mimher of adjustable sections (like those of a long fishing rod), by means of which he managed to perform at ease the work that his little white slave hitherto went through at the peril of his life. Modem science has. now enabled him to further reduce the labors incidental to his calling and "M. la. raraoneur" of 1898 goes his rounds on a "bicyclette." A STRANGE ACCIDENT, mous and fearless of the California "aaueros, was practicing in a wild west show. He was mounted on a broncho and was training with a friend similarly mounted. He was trying to swing his riata so as to catch his companion's horse by the leg in the noose. While the rope was whirling in a circle a minute, or two before its intended flight Slankard's horse moved suddenly. At the same instant the lasso was released and became entangled In the legs of Slankard's horse. It reared, threw Itself backward, pitched the rider and fell on him. He died as a result of the accident. It is the only fatality of Its kind on record. Female Workers in SlanlcU..
