Precious stones of inestimable value lay packed together, "ke so many walnuts in a bunch. There were single gems worth a year's pay of a division of an army. They were all separated from their settings and bore no distinguishing mark except their uncommon size. Heaped closely together in this manner, the splendor and brilliance of their hues was in great measure disguised, and they might have been mistaken for tinted crystals or even bits of glass. Indeed, it was difficult for the mind to conceive of such a concentration of wealth. A single handful of the contents of this box would be enough to make a man rich for life. There was not oiie that was not of royal magnificence. Where had they all come from? I hat is a question that doubtless never can be answered. Napoleon the First, in his campaign, had an eye to the pecuniary future of his dynasty, and he must have helped himself with a free hand whenever opportunity offered. C^ould those stones have spoken, they might have told tales that would make the enchanted valley of Sinbad and Aladdin s palace seem tame. There were a few superb rings in the collection, but otherwise, as has been stated, all were naked. Solarigo was far enough from comprehending the significance of the sight.

When war breaks out you will be on the other side of the ooeai-flSe thousand miles away." The soldier's enthusiastic look faded snrugged his shoulders deprecat- The other personasco in the room was a man of mature years. He was barely of middle height, but his figure was compact, and his shoulders broad and thick His face, somewhat fleshy about the jaws, and of a dull complexion, had an aquiline nose, a carefully waxed mustache and a pointed imperial. The eyes were wide apart, and the heavy lids drooping over them gave them a somnolent aspect; yet, examining them more attentively, you would perceive that W'ey were eyes that nothing escaped —watchful, penetrating, impenetrable- eyes. For the rest this countenance bore the marks of anxiety aud ill health; there were heavy lines beneath the eyes, the forehead was furrowed and the hair was thin on its conical summit. Y/ithal • • both face and figure had a certain dignity and power as to one accustomed to • being unquestioningly obeyed. The man wore a black broadcloth coat, a white waistcoat and gray trousers. Diagonally across his breast lay a broad, blue sash He was leaning back in his chair smoking a cigarette, and seemingly plunged in meditation. A knock came at the door. The younger man rose, wajked to the door and opened it. After a brief colloquy he turned and said in French: "Sire, there is a person here who desires an audience. He says" "What name, Raoul?" interrupted the other. "Solange, sire." "Very good. He comes by appointment. Let him enter. And you, my dear Raoul, will take your place behind the thin partition during the interview. I hope to be able to trust this man, but it will be necessary to take precaution,"' > The young man bowed, at the same. time throwing open the dppjr to" admit the visitor, and himself gassing out and closing it behind, him. The newcomer on entering made a military salute, and |hen stood, cap in haud, with his eyes fixed on tho inscrutable visage before him. He was near fifty years of age, of vigorous physique, with a thick, muscular neck, black hair cropped short, heavy black eyebrows and a fierce mustache. Ho was plainly clad, but though liis dress was that of a civilian he had the bearing of a soldier. x "Captain Maurice Solange," said the- gentleman with the cigarette, "you and I became acquainted some years, since at tb,e battle of Solferino. Y oa . wero then a private iu the Twenty-third regiment. I had lost my aid-decamp,, and intrust- • ed you with a dispatch to, General Ton™ taine, on ous left wing. On your way to him, you were wounded in the breast w#h a rifle ball You delivered the dispatch, however* and returned with his answer. In handing it to me you fell from Joss of blood. I had you taken to my tent and placed in charge of ray best surgeons. On your recovery you were promoted to be corporal." Captain Solange bowed low. "You remember it, eireV" "Qh, ?ery well, I also remember that on several subsequent occasions I com- wt/$ecl to you the execution of or* tiers iftypjying danger and demanding prudence, faithfulness and courage." For yqjir sueaessful performance of these OHfcteg yoaj were promoted to be sergeant . and finally Qsptajitt. From ye »v to year I have nofc last e%ht of you. My uncle and myself have &»nd no better servants than among those who have sprung, like you, from the rauks. I now desire you to afford me ft rfasQa for bestowing upon you the Cr^ss of the Legion of Honor. Would you <?are t%ogsess it?" "My emperor, my one happiness is to serve yon. My one grief, that I cannot serve you, enough." "Ah, a pretty eomplimant! in return J have a compliment for yojj. fa franco are thirty million Frenchman..

If our army were comoosed entirely of men like, you, there would indeed be no question of it. But some of our most dangerous enemies are not among those who will confront us on the field." "If you know of any such, my emperor, arrest them and order them to be shot! Ma foil There is powder and ball enough for traitors, at all events!" "That may come afterward, mon ami. a or the moment, it is expedient to appear blind to disloyalty, in order to induce it more fully to betray itself. Meanwhile, it is the part of wisdom to S £ ??! ^ nothin g that may happen shall find us unprepared. Many a victory, Captain Solange, has been lost through not having sufficiently anticipated the possibilities and occasion o" defeat." "Well, I am but a soldier," said So lange, "my business is to obey ordera After all, you are the emperor!" Napoleon sighed. "Yes, it is a singu lar thing, this being an emperor " ho muttered, half to himself. "In order to maintain your place at the summit of the pyramid you must suffer the pyramid itself to be undermined. Let us turn to business, my brave Solange " went on in another toaae. "As fo war, I must have faith in my.star, as did my uncle before me. If, like him am destined to fall at .last-well, all things come to an end?,, At least Germany shall lmow thaishehas an enemy!" "The .good %# preserve, you and i ranee, my em^-or," said the other devoutly. ' - 'Are these all, sire?" ho asked, his eyes to the emperor's face. lifting They could be exchanged for a good deal of money?" returned Napoleon quietly. "Have you any idea how much?" In truth, I don't know much about TOch things. I never owned jewels in my life But now, then, I remember. A friend of mine once had one, not so large as the least of these, which he said cost a thousand francs. Of course, I did not beheye such a story, but were it only half true I can understand that all these would be very valuable. Many thousand francs, perhaps; fifteen or twenty thou- Philosopher, possibly-if he were business," repeated "If Prance receives a check it be desirable that I retire for a sea*son.

"As for England I do not trust her. Itisnot to W interest that I should prevail; nor can St. Helena ever be forgotten. And before I go-if, indeed, destiny decides tiat I must go—I shall prepare the way by sending to the United States in advance treasure sufficient to meet whatever needs may arise ATI/! i-l- 4o 4-1%••« 4»H..

AtW WCiO really a philosopher-might value them' at less than that sum," said Napoleon, who had been watching the soldier's face keenly, without seeming, to do so. '.'But ourmrtificial modes of life tend to give them an artificial worth. Besides, they have the interest of history and associations. Most of them belonged to my famous uncle, and were obtained by him during his campaigns. Others came iii other ways. Blood has been spilt for them; romances are connected with them. At the present time, however, there are but one or two persons, ia addition to ourselves, who -are aware that this collection exists. The secret, could not be safely divulged, for mea.have nsked and lost both their lives, and! their souls for less than a thousandth part the money that these stones would bring." ^Solauge opened hiaeyes^ '•'Of course, then, my guess was too, small—muchtfoo small," he remarked.

No scheme that mortal man can devise ts free from the liability to error or miscarriage. Disaster may overtake this, as well as others; but I shall nave the satisfaction of knowing that I adopted the surest means of success within my reach. However, we will anticipate your safe arrival. Meanwhile, go and prepare yourself for the journey, and come to me tomorrow morning. I shall probably order you to set out by the noon train to Marseilles." "Sire, you shall be satisfied with me," said Solange, retiring. "I fully believe it," returned the emperor graciously. "Raoul," he said to the secretary, who entered as Solange disappeared, "let two of our best detectives follow that man, and never lose sight of him. If he is seen to speak more than a minute to any one, let him and the one to whom he spoke be instantly arrested and brought hither. Go! Be quick!" As Raol vanished Napoleon replaced the box in its corner, and then,.reseat- mg himself in his chair, lit another cigarette. " (To lio Continued.) BOARD PROCEEDINGS.

On motion J. Holtz was made a committee to expend $175.00 on grade on south line of section 3-96-30. "Assuredly,..it v/ould Beem so to any tn.an>. A^man. might labor night and day for a- hundred yea-rs and not get together so.much as that." "Very true. Nevertheless, my brave Solange, if I wera to pay you every day this.sum of oneh undred thousand francs and continue tho se payments, not for a week, or a mo-nth, or a year, but for fourteen years, 'I should still have paid you barely the -value in gold represented by this little boi xf nl of stones. They are worth, in other words, at least five hundred million francs." The soldier's jaws gaped, but came together again without a sound. His bluff visage became pale. He stared stupidly around him. He moistened his drylipa mfch his tongue, but still was unable to titter a word. "You pavceive, therefore," the emperor continued, "that, as I said, 'it is no light errand that you are to undertake. It is not too much to say that you will have not only my fortune, but the future of the empire in your hands." "Five—hundred,-em.ilUons!" gasped Solange at last. ".Qreat Qodl' It is a nightmare!
