THE EBOH CEOSS, My friend, Robert Thnrston, Is & man whose real charactet, and that indicated by his appearance, are as far different as can be imagined. He is the proverbial "black sheep" of the family, and yet, despite all his Mildness, he has often been mistaken for a clergyman. Here is the story of one of my nomadic friend's adventures, as related by himself: 1 was In Paris. The city and Its ways were well known to toe, while my circle of acquaintances was not small. One day, •while wandering about the city alone, 1 came to a standstill at the corner of one of the most fashion* abe streets. A man passed me who looked very searchingly into my face. In a few minutes he returned, and again favored me with that annoying stare. "1 beg your pardon, monsieur, but is not this Alaris? The man was sincere, and I comprehended that l was mistaken for some other person, but I was about to deny all knowledge when the desire for a little sport overcame my more serious inclinations, and I gravely replied: "I am so called." "I thought it must be BO," he continued, with an air of satisfaction. "Those black crosses are too uncommon to be seen in large numbers on this corner at the appointed hour." 1 bowed slightly. I knew my strange friend referred to the ebon cross that hung over my white shirt bosom, but for all that his words were most mysterious. "You are nearly an hour before time," continued the unknown, "but If you are ready we will at once proceed to the residence of my master." "Quite ready," I replied; "lead on." Had you been present, my dear fel- "Col. de Lisle knew his business," l returned with an emphatic nod. "Then, monsieur, w6 will to btisi- nees at once. As you hate, perhaps, learned, my name is M. Jules Levane. I ain believed to be very wealthy, btil really t am not worth a thousand louts d'ors. ten years ago i lost nearly my whole fortune by the failure Of a scheme in which 1 had speculated largely. Ruin stared me in the face. ] knew not what to do In such a fearful situation. Accustomed from my youth to a life of luxury and ease, and looked upon as a man whom princes dared not slight, the idea of falling was too terrible for contemplation. "Thus situated, I did what nearly every other man would have done in my situation, t had a ward, given to my charge five years previously, by her dying father, my early friend. This ward was very wealthy, and all her property was under my control. To save myself from ruin i appropriated her fortune that has for ten years kept my head above the tide. Now ray ward has reached the age at which her fortune was to be placed conditionally in her hands. Monsieur, what shall I do? Ruin is inevitabe if I give up her money." "Let me hear your plan," said I. "I have a son, 24 years of age, the heir of my respectability and my poverty. If Louts and Marie were to marry, the fortune would not need to leave my control, and all would be well." "Then, let them marry." "Ah, that is the trouble. Marie refuses to wed my son." I began to comprehend the plot, and resolved to carry out the part I had undertaken. "Proceed," said I, blindly. "Did you ever hear of a marriage ceremony being performed where the bride refused to give her consent to the union?" demanded M. Jules Levane, fixing a gaze upon me as though he would read my very thought. I TOOK THE UNWILLING BRIDE ASIDE. low, you would, without, doubt, have been greatly shocked at the course I was taking; but It just suited me, and I saw before me a prospect of rich pleasure. So I followed on after my guide, who finally paused before one of the most pretentious mansions of the city, and applied for admission. While we waited for an answer to his summons, I read the name upon the door-plate of the mansion, It 'was M. Jules Levane. The servant who answered the bell admitted us without question, and my companion conducted me through several rooms into the library, and then left me with tho announcement that be would at once send M. Levane to my presence. • The mystery was deepening. This house, with its magnificence, was such as might well be inhabited by a, prince, and I began to fear I had carried my loke too far. The reflection that it was now too late to retreat caused me to determine to keep up the deception for a time longer, and I heard advancing footsteps with the utmost tranquil-lity. A tall, imperious-looking man of about 60 years entered, and, while sa- utlng me, kept his gaze constantly ixed upon me, "You are the clergyman sent here by lol, de Lisle?" he questioned, abruptly. "Sent to the corner of and streets," I amended, at a venture. "And you are the gentleman who was directed to answer to the name of Alarls?" "J am." "Very goo<J.

"I asked the same question of Col. de Lisle," said the old villain, with an air of relief, "and he gave me an affirmative reply. He furthermore promised to send a clergyman to the corner of - and - streets, at 2 o'clock p. m. today, who would be kind enough to perform such a ceremony. Col. de Lisle was obliged to start f or Lyons this morning on important business, so he could not be present. It was agreed, however, that the reverend gentleman should wear upon his breast a peculiar black cross, and H was by that my man recognized him." M. Levane here arose and went to a desk in one corner of the room. This ho unlocked, and took therefrom a stout canvas bag, which/was half filled with glittering gold. He laid the bag before me, and then continued: "Now, monsieur, Mfarie Duchane must wed my son. If you perform that ceremony this gold is yours." ' I did not hesitate an instant, but pocketing the gold, bade the scheming guardian lead the way to the bridal chamber. I found the bride-elect, a most beautiful girl, to be firmly opposed to the union contemplated by her guardian, and so I applied to M. Levane for permission to argue the case with her. He readily consented to this, and I took the unwilling bride aside and explained the circumstances of the case to her. She was at first inclined to doubt my statements, but I succeeded in convincing her of my truthfulness at length, and by my advice she consented to le^ the ceremony proceed, when assured that it would be a mere farce. kevane was deljgbtec} at; my puc<je9s ae a diplomatist, a»4 the marriage wa# at pwQ» nerfQrjned,, $ the part pf the unwiljinj;, tp say njy part wag . fprmed, thanks, to te4'l» qur e ,| S un, per 1 left the Lefanes, father aad eon, itt raptures, and, with the bag of gold .in my pocket, proceeded to the office of the chief of police, where 1 told my story and demanded Justice for tha unfortunate ward of M.

A Naples landlord Who MUtook ttowoy for Iluffftlo Bill. Washington post: In connection with the visit of Admiral Dewey to Naples, an amusing story is told, it is highly illustrative of the dense Ignorance of the Neapolitans as to current events In other parts of tho world. It seems that the inhabitants of that beautiful but sleepy city were not aware of the presence of their distinguished guest, although the Italian journals in other cities had contained great accounts of tho exploits of the American naval commander. The English and American colonies were very profuse in their display of the stars and stripes, and the newspapers of that city might have been aware, had they hot slumbered, that an Amor- lean of some distinction was about to honor the burg with a visit. It was not until the day after the admiral's landing, however, that the Naples press awoke to the Importance of their guest. Even then, instead of announcing the fact with adequate headlines, tho mention was wedged in, with or diuary type, between the police news and the daily reports on the spaghetti output. A well-known English broker, who was putting up at one of the llea Infested hotels of the city, was very desirous of paying his respects to Dewey as soon as he should arrive. The broker, who butchers the dulcet Italian In frightful stylo, undertook to question his olly'ond garrulous land- 1 lord about the hero of Manila. "Corpo di Dlo!" exclaimed tho boniface, as he thrust hia thumbs Into his velvet waistcoat. "I hear speak of deeco Americano; he have one big shoe— what you call him—show? Ze Vilda Vesta expozislone—I see heem. He ride cowboy in Romn two, threo years ago." The moral being obvious, no comment is necessary. A Uattlc-SoKiTod Heroine. There is a very handsome young woman iu Washington, rather well known in art circles, who had the misfortune- to fall down stairs a few years ago, so badly fracturing one of her knees that the limb had to be amputated, relates the Washington Post, The young woman, of course, walks with the akl of crutches. She is not in the least sensitive about the matter, and she doesn't mind informing properly introduced people of the nature of the accident which maimed her. She has set a little limit, however, and she was compelled to use it ono afternoon recently. She got into an F street car, bound for the hill, and found herself iu the same seat with a sharp-faced woman, who seemed to take a whole lot of interest in her and her crutches. She scrutinized tha young woman's face carefully for a couple of minutes, then turned her attention to the workmanship of tho crutches, which she took the liberty to handle curiously. Then she looked the young woman over again, and leaned over to her. "D'ye mind terlin* me how you lost your leg?" she asked, raspily. "Not in the least," responded the young woman, amiably. "I lost it in the battle of Gettysburg." Bpontl of an Automobile. The greatest speed of a motor-car yet recorded Is nearly sixty-six miles an hour. A Belgian inventor, M. Ca- mllle Jenatzy, in April this year determined, if'possible, to break the kilometer record of 38 3-5 seconds made by Count de Chasseloup Laubat. The course was a perfectly straight and level road running through the> new sewage farm lying off the highway between Saint-Germain and Constance. The car which Jeuatzy rode was the "Jamals Contento," which is built of ( sheet-iron, and is torpedo- shaped so as to offer as little resistance to the wind as possible. The first kilometer was ridden in 47 4-5 seconds, and the second in 34 seconds, which is equivalent to 105.882 kilometers (65 miles 1,404 yards) in the hour. "La, Jamais Conteute" 'is not even yet satisfied, for Jenatzy thinks that he will be able to do the flying kilometer at the rate of about 120 kilometers, or about 75 miles an hour.
