One lovely morning just before the break of day, in the sweet maiden time ,of the year-tho gentle month of May. It was still dark. At one of the angles of tlie chateau a casement was open-a female stood before it; oppo- .stte that window, a few paces distant, was a tree, from the midst of whose •wldcsprendlng foliage a gentleman was •seen noiselessly descending, who had•been conversing with the lady at the iopen casement, whose anxious glances followed him to the ground.

And with these words he drew from 'his pocket a hn.ndkeivhlef, and cast upon tho table-before his master two fingers, horribly mutilated. Every person present.drew back in --unfeigned horror, while Emillo uttered .a piercing shriek. But. in a moment she recollected that her own happiness and that of her lovoy depended upon her prudence and self-possession, She accordingly succeeded In mastering her feelings. Puring the silence that took place, after the cry of horror that had escaped the lips of Emillo at the sight of'-ttje-mutilated,lingers lying on tho table, the gamekeeper had time to con^ Huue his clamorow niirwUve, "Yes, sir," said Itaoul, In a loud voice, "they were caught ill the park gate, and what proves the thing was done by robbers and that the rogues wore numerous, is that tho spring wicket ]md only smashed the Augers—for they were afterwards taken off. It }s impossible one man could have courage • enough to operate in so terrible « manner upon himself." * M. de Leutral examined the fingers with gloomy looks and deep attention; and then suddenly glancing around the yopm. without fixing his eyes upon any pereon In particular, he said, with a bitter smile; t , „ •The skin pf wangled fingers -|s very white, aiid those nails are kept Jil too good order to be those of a robber," " , Every one of these words, fell like -scorching drops of boiling lead upon the heart of Kinilic. Her teeth chattered; fche felt that her brain whirled, And that her eyes became dim.

"N'o, sir—not 1 have found nothing," replied the gamekeeper; "but attother fact, which proves that the villains Wel'e numerous) or, rather that there was more than oiio, is that tho knife was wiped upon a piece of paper—a thing that no wounded man could think of doing.

"Exactly what is it?" shoutrt't ttaonl. "Those brigands always carry .poniards. The vllllans—-the ruflins—the murder arst" M. de Leutral ordered the gamekeeper to leave tho room, whi.e Emilie took the paper and mechanically passed It to her right-hand neighbor, so soon as she had glanced cursorily over it. That person scrutinized it with tho utmost curiosity, and again awoke the slumbering terrors of tho wretched Emlllp by saying:— "Yes, there is something written beneath the blood." "Let" me-see it!" exclaimed M. de Leutral, his eyes flashing fire, and his voice almost choked with emotion. The paper ATOS passed to him once more, and, after a great deal of dlffl- culty, he gradually deciphered theso words: "M. de Loutral and Mile.

M. de Leutral crushed the paper in his hands •with-terrible violence, and now, for the first time giving vent to tho tempest that raged within him, he addressed his ward to an angry tone, and said:— '"Tls well—this evening we shall see which of our guests will bo missing!" He hastily left the room, followed by his friends, in a state of moody and suspicious silence. Emiline remained alone, and was now, for tho first time, enabled to examine the terrible object of accusation. She gazed upon it—and so well is each beautiful feature of a lover registered on the tablet of his mistress's memory, that-she-recognized 'and*secured, the-sad relic.' Tho devotion of tho noble count te> the welfare and honor of his mistress —to mutilate Mmself—was .terrible. But that which he subsequently did was. far more chivalrous still.

I am now incapacitated for, and have retired from tho service and am once more a civilian—and I trust as such he will waive his objections." M. de Leutral,havlng'learnt.theitio- ble devotedness of tho count on behalf of his niece, no longer withheld his con sent to their union! and giving Ifiinllk. a dower of one million francs, he np pointed her heiress to the remainder of his Immense wealth.

M. do Leutral—stationed at a little distance from the door—affected to receive them with a degree of politeness which permitted him to count and examine all who passed him. Tho-hour-advanced, and the count did not make his appearance; a few other fashionables of the day were also late. The festival continued, and some of the expected guests wore still wanting, but they wore only ladies and old men —not one on whom suspicion could fall save the Count do St. Claire. Emilie was aware of this, and her uncle whispered' in her oar, as he passed by the place whore she was posted:— The circle of my suspicion gradual-' becomes smaller; it now includes but throo names, and already might I select one, and announce myself that the count " At .that moment when M. do Leutral How Balloons May Me MartnK««l Bit* iiiff Oiierutloita in tlie tfielrt. Balloon and wagon have formed a junction and are ready to .start with the troops, sayg the Now York Times. Away goes the wagon, and tho balloon hanging to its tail, while the attendant sappers on each aide keep it, steady. The train moves along at a good found pace, easily keeping up -with or even passing tho infantry, and makes for the particular spot at which it has been determined to commence ballooning operations, which is usually on top of a" good high hill. An ascent is an easy enough matter and is soon accomplished. The balloon is securely fixed to tho end of the wire rope, and the two men who arc to ascend take their places. At tho word of command the men who •have boon holding down the car let go, and up shoots tho balloon, unwinding the rope as it rises, and allowed sometime to ascend to a height of 1,000 feet. And suppose the . officer ^receives instructions to move the position of the balloon is it necessary to haul it down .' Not a bit of it. A man is placed at tho end of tlic wagon who carefully guides the connecting -rope so that it cannot got entangled or run risk of being cut, and away goes the wagon, sometimes at a trot, across fields, and up and dowii hill, until the balloon itself is a long distance from its original station. Next, suppose that It Is iicces- 'surv to Icnver-tho balloon, Is it; necdtul to wind in all the wire rope that has been paid out from the reels? No such thing. Tho balloon is brought to cnrth in a much more expeditious manner. A long, stout pole, In the middle of. which is n pulley wheel, is laid across the rope. Half «i dozen men seize tlie polo and run it along the rope ami their weight soon brings the balloon down to the ground. Passengers can then bo carried on, and then New Spring Crtf)c*.

They ate not only convenient, but highly orha* netttal garments as well. 1?of exatrt' e, here is a capo which haft recently seen ordered by a New York society woman. It is rather short, reaching just below the elbo\v. The material Used as the foundation is sage-green velvet, Over this is a deep collarette of point dd Venise lace, which ends about three inches from the bottom. The edge of the cape proper is of black silk, closely covered with jet spangles, This forms a solid, glistening trimming. Draped over this trimming is a. long cord of jet .b'alls,-Which add's to the odd effect In the front the cream-tinted lace is caught over tho corsage by a large bow of black moire ribbon, and a bow equally as large is fastened at the back of the collar. The capo would blend well with almost any costume.

But it Ms not necessary to lower tho balloon in this or any other way whenever it is required that messages should bo exchanged between those below and those above. There are various contrivances for doing ttals. Sometimes, for -instance, a. -wire is attached, through which messages can bo sent to a telephone. Another plan is to send messages down the wire cable. A little wire- hook is fastened around tho cable and tho letter or paper, weighted down with a small sandbag, is 'sent fluttering down.

M, do Leutral and his niece wore each so anxious to devour him with a look, that neither precolved the disorder which was pictured upon the other's countenance. But tho appearance of tho count excited far different sentiments in the breast of his entertainer; he camo careless, with bis opera hat under his arm, playing with his shirt-frill with ono hand, and dangling his watch chain with the other—both being covered with irreproachable white kid gloves. "Ah! it is not he, then!" thought the uncle and ward at.;-tho same moment, "It is not ho, then!" said tho uncle to himself. "It is not h'i who was wounded, thought Emtline, Oh! from that moment how every* <h|cg was changed in her eyes! The magnitude of tho danger that• menaced her was diminished—her lov<« was ^fo and h«r agonies of soul wore abrogated.

She kept , on taking the pills, and now she is able to go over to the neighbors, and is bright and smart. She was a living skeleton; there was nothing to her Dufc bones, and they were all out of shape. When she was first .taken sick she was out of her head, and for three years, if yoiiwill believe me, it was an Utter impossibility for me to catch more than five minutes' sleep at a .time, So much care was she, and such constant attention did she require, and 1 was the only one she would let wait upon her.

Before I started on the Pink Pills I wrote to a specialist in Buffalo, and described her symptoms; ho said she ' had'blood poisoning, due to bad milk, and wanted me to bring her there for treatment, although he said that ho didn't believe she would ever get over it. She had been given up by four doctors, who were certain that they could not cure her. Why, she couldn t open her mouth, and I actually had to force the food into it.
