Cardinal Richelieu, ^_ % 4'onncteil on the 1'ln.y of "lllchellcu," by Lord Lytton. CHAPTER IV . His lace ruffles" Were valuable, and fell thickly and snowlly upon muscular hands; the inner sleeves, of equally as fresh and costly linen, , peeped out of the slashes in the purple double sleeves and in the interval between the upper garment and the blue velvet breeches. His boots of unblaclced leather had been pulled tip to the knee for walking through •the wretched streets, 'since he had «otno in a friend's coach and had no horse oh which to return home; his "baldric was richly wrought in silver •on the sable which predominated as £he color of ornaments.and extended to both his .beaver hat and ita .feather. Adrien looked curiously at the master whom he had not seen for years, not because he was eager to view his judge again, but because there was more dearly than ever in Ills mind the remembrance that the minister's /ward was that Julie de mortemar whose presence in the capital had attracted him hither beyond any other charm. But -the difficulty of approaching a maid of honor had disheartened him •until, as we have seen, the 'young knight had plunged into fashionable •dissipation to the loss of the re- •mainder of his patrimony. The cardinal had eyed him also from top to toe with the scrutiny of a leader of a forlorn hope choosing _ his ensig'n, as well as the searching- ness of a father judging- a prospective son-in-lqw— two excellent Investigators of young men. "Approach, sir," said ha at last, after he had seen Huguet, with a lighter ' step than his bulk and hia armor would seem to have permitted him, get behind the screen to keep the unarmed visitor under his mus- ketoon. "Approach, sir, my table. ;Can you call to mind tho hour, three vears since, when in this room your presence honored mo?" "My lord, 'tis one of my most _ " "Delightful recollections," supply- Ing the break with a dry humor •which made the young man start from the aged man who, on the brink •of the grave, could jest at . the ax and the executioner. | "You were then accorded a mercy (ill-requitted. Adrien de Mauprat, how hast thou since consumed the lime allotted thee.for serious thought •and solemn penitence? I'll answer lor thee. What thou hast not done •is briefly told; what done, a volume! 'Wild debauch; turbulent riot; for the morn the dice box, at noon the for- ihidden duel, and the nig,ht the wassail—these your most holy, pure (preparatives for death and judgment. Do I wrong you, sir?" The knight smiled mournfully. "If my nature is changed," he responded, "blame the specter — your eminence appeared to me like a shadow. Any one would have erred like me who had the same fate your lordship inflicted.' 1 "I might like you, have been a "brawler and a reveler," granted the cardinal; "but not like you, a trickster and a ihief — " . "Lord cardinal!" cried the "unsay those words!" ' As he advanced threateningly the armed man behind the screen leaned forward for the better aim; but Kiohelieu waved him back, since t hacl instantly cheeked him- tt> mm&$i ei.i6ts the fife of a lion." * "Tfftlioff" cried fcifineUeti, " trlflgst with Hiei i kiiow all!" . The kaipht started. With his super natural mean's o! obtaining in- ftfrfnation, had the omnipotent states* man already become cognizant of that treaty signed a few hours since by the hand which he had unfettered So nobly! 1 Impossible! and Mauprat breathed less heavily. "Young Adrien," Went on the prel< ate f "thou hast dared to love my ward." "It is true," responded the knight manfully! "a priest may not know how 1 blessdd a thing it Was to my dark hour to nurse the oa6 sWeet thought you bid me banish. Me was a base knight and false lover who bartered all that soothed In. grief or sanctified despair for life and gold- Eevoke your mercy." There was no mistaking the firmness of his decision. "1 thoUght we met as foes to part as friends," muttered the prime minister regretfully. 'Alas! I prefer the fate I looked for than so great a gladness at that price." ' 'Then, Huguet!"—as the guardsman came forward with the muske- toon in the hollow of his brawny arm--"step into the tapestried chamber and send me the person there awaiting my orders.' 1 As the soldier disappeared Mau- prat sighed to himself, but with that single exhalation he recovered his equanimity to face the executioner whom he expected was thus summoned. \ "My execution will ba private," thought he, as the cardinal, with what seemed reckless courage alone before a desperate man in condemnation, p'acidly went on with his scribbling. "I am not a > Count Jhalais, but I trust 1 shall as nobly meet my doomsman.". The door opened, but the step was a light and joyous one which transported Julie in amazement to his side. They gazed at one another with a love which had no need of words for mutual comprehension. Wondering, the man, with a terrible revulsion at his heart, turned to the :ardinal, \vho, flinging down his joosequill, was resting his thin,long ! aco between his hands and his elbows on tho table, smiling on tho pair. "You smile!" cried Julie, shrink- ng back no longer from the confidently opening arms of her lover, in which, not caring to restrain themselves, "their, sister Corals met" in a loving kiss, to word it after tho troubadour, who would have rejoiced to see so admirably a fitted pair. "Oh, my father!" she pursued, as the two knelt for the venerable statesman's blessing, "from my heart forever, now, I'll blot the name of youth, "In short," said the elder, studying the effect of his every phrase, *'you have out-run your fortune; I 4o pot blame you that you would be # beggar. Each t° his taste! But I 4o charge you, sir, that, being beggared, you would coin false moneys put of that crucible called debt by such aa you, but by plain follc theft! you must pay your debts." , * "With all my heart, my lord," answered the humorous daredevil<«Where shall I- borrow then, the jnoney?" TJie soldier behind the screen laughed to himself; and the. cardinal smiled, for this was the very man to suit his? purpose, ready, frank and }?pld, ' _ ('Adrien de Mauprat, men have iic$ijed ine cruel," he proceeded: »»I »m not; I am really Just! You shall fce my champion to confute my rna- i'8." Ho offered bis emaciated wljiob the ohevajior greeted You rich,. sir, needs all her sons, \^pe, pit aU stains— ba }u return. J "Rise, my children," said the other, "for ye are mine—mine both. We men are arrows, and nothing- sends us go straight as love." In their sweet delight, perhaps, he saw a rovivication of his own first amorous dreams. "You shall have my summerhouse in the Luxembourg gardens! There. I behold such a smile on your lips, my boy, as her father wore when I received that trust beside his deathbed. Go, my children,stroll in th'e gardens in the last sun that shall see you unwedded. You bear it bravely. Adieu," he subjoined, pushing the interlaced pair from his cabinet, "though you know it requires loonine courage!" But the laugh of the infirm old man died away before even ..the sound of their gay 'footsteps. They would be married on the morrow, and be happy without a care, whilst he had all the world desirous to pluck from his heart his mistress, France—the sweet and precious girdle round his native Paris, from both of which they sought to divorce him by poison or the dagger. "For a day I will make merry in honor of the sterling fellow and iny darling, the fairest bride," mused he, "and let that venomous hatching of tho sting-fly courtier spring up, bud, ripen, flaunt in the day, and burst to the Dead sea fruit of ashes —ashes which 1 will scatter to the winds to manure the soil of power, and ripen such full sheaves of greatness that all the summer of my fate shall seem fruitless beside the autumn. Then will fall a lull, and 1 shall, ha! ha! have leisure for my di« versions. My great play shall be completed, and Julie and Adrien will applaud judiciously from the best box!" He was still chafing his hands gleefully with the eyes oil the tragedy in question, when a, bell tinkled in a drawer of his writing table. He opened it, and saw a. note x already shot there by some secret inecho,n- isin from without, "It is from Marion," he said, taking it up, but without eagerness, as if he divined its revelation would clash with his private joy. The note was in cipher, the sand glistening on the still fresh ink like a,serpent's scales, "Baradas, Qrleans, and-their colleagues in some scheme meet at my house this night- They come t,o sign a pledge of support to Bouillon and Soissons, and to choose the desperate hand that will strike your ducal eminence." So ra» the warning when intetv preted- The threatened man lifted an unruffled brow"Hum! to gain the prize they must destroy &U the eyes of the Argue- shall 1 s&S ydtif amidst those of tnan'y trtMed, only less beholden to thJ dj?ift|f defender of a fealftt agftift td b6 racked!*" A knock at the floor* thfdugh which the lovers had passed, full-of gladness, atid Mauprat alone walked in, at the permission. "My lord and father," said ha solemnly, "before ode takes a marvel of purity to his bosom he should ,be a soul-cleansed man. Ahd 1 " "ha! You. then, have put you? hand a'hd* stamped with your sword- pommel that contract of the traitors signed in the house of that t)elorme serpent?" cried the priest, enjoying the amazement which over-spread the young' man's features' at bringing twlce'told intelligence. "1 thodglit you——=-".•. "Whatever you thought me, m* son," said Richelieu, loftily, "yoii should not have bound yourself to make away with your king-^-'—'» "I—the king " "For in leveling your piece at Louis tho Thirteenth, be his defects as ruler what they may, you assail royalty, and no gentleman shotfld palter with tho tempters who counsel that." "My lord, a party headed by——' 1 "As I know all you .qan betray no confidence. Gaston of Orleans is a living example of the wisdom of tho Turks in letting no male of the blood-royal live to threaten the throne. Tho man who disowned Chalais to protect his head will let his brother be murdered on the very steps of the throne! and mount them with unfaltering feet, though the blood dye his slipper to tha rosette." "But I expressly stated that the king was to be sacred." "That is, all the violence expended upon me. Thanks for the preference, son so filial! But run away and pluck a bouquet for Julie. I want none of your confessions for my knowledge of the low intrigues that soothe in the witches' caldrons." Again Adrien kissed his hand and flew out with an unchanged brow. Richelieu looked at the back of hia hand searchingly, as if a Judas-kiss must have left a sting and a blackening ellipse. "Let them be happy! No one will heed them in their momentous plots, But I must be on the alert. "I will go in tne night to my stronghold of Rouil, where I doubt the assassin can penetrate. Huguet, though, I half suspect; when he aimed at Mauprat he "had my head in the line, and these eyes are not so bleared with study that I did not see infernal comprehension of his power to slay me at any moment blaze in his orbs'! Joseph?—all the world fears him and loves.him not, and I" alone can persuade Rome to rnauo him a bishop; but, then, the king whispers 'Cardinal' and Gaston may hold up a semblance of the tiara. I will trust not a soul! I will act, alone—alone am I! Old, childless, now that young rose is worn on another's breast—broken, forsaken! All alone, but for the indomitable heart ot Arrnand Richelieu!" CHAPTER "y. The Clew. Womon are so overjoyed at a success in perfidy that no indignation of an honest man at being suspected of infidelity could equal the white-hot fury of Marion Delorme in bo- ing debarred from the secret coufab- j ukition of the prince of Orleans, Bar-, adas, and their confederates. This formal conclusion did not render her a stranger to thoir negotiations,since she had been enabled to inform the cardinal of so much of their support, and it would have been remarkable in that period of intrigue if a house especially built for a dominant beauty should not contain traps and "eavesdroppers' holes." But she was piqued; and a Marion piqued is a woman dismissing every thought but the desire for reprisal out of her mind. [TO BE CONTINUED.] The AVtiys of a Mule. One day this week that mule of Jim Overby's got a little uppity, and went and took his seat on the sidewalk right where the school children had to pass along-. It was not long before the marshal came along. He asked a few questions about the mule, and swore Jim had to take him oil the streets or be fined. But Jim couldn't g-et that mule away and he left it there, and the marshal came along afterward an,d arrested the mule and tried to get it up, but the mule would not budge. The marshal talked, begged, threatened, scolded and kicked, but that uiulo only switched his tail and grinned. The marshal, becoming vexed, called in several of the citizens of the town, and by their united persuasive powers the mule got up on its feet. But the mule would not go, and it was not until Jim Ovorby gou back and whispered ii few gentle words into the oars of this creature tljat it consented to go. So the marshal carried the mule and put it in the lockup and it will have its trial next week.—Jacksonville, Georgia, Her* aid. Tlio Uivt.

It Is difficult to make children believe that the future destinies of x the nation are to be shaped by the individual efforts of Its citizens. That which was an easy task for our forefathers has been carelessly abandoned for more than fifty years. Those who are Inclined to find fault with existing candidates, politically and otherwise, may by slight effort locate the cause. The adults of this generation were taught In youth the accumulation of wealth should be the aim of their, existence. Too many have been trfught to "accumulate It honestly," If possible, but accumulate It. And so the nation has drifted from the grand old moorings of Its founders,' and there Is none so meager of thought who cannot see the awful error that has been committed. How to return to the good old ways of our forefathers Is what Is bothering us now. There are a babel of theories, but no solution to* the great problem. No theory can be said to even admit of the slightest color-of truth, and this though they are all born of honest praiseworthy thought. And even when truth Is discovered It will be a long time, perhaps a quarter of a century, before enough people will believe It to give It operation. The youth of the present day will have many grave questions to confront them when they grow up to be men and women, They are scheduled for a most impressive task. From their ranks must come the officers of state and the generals and congressmen and senators, who will once more re-establish the doctrine that "a. government, by the people, for the people, and of the people, shall not perish." The immortal words of the immortal Llncoln, 4 leader of men, will be the battle cry of the future. His life should be the model for every boy to follow. It should be taught In the schools, and every boy and girl should know "it by heart, before they are fifteen. Lincoln In his life was the embodiment of truth. From youth to maturity he always respected the rights and views of others, but in his own actions always did what his conscience told him was right. It was not easy for such a man as Lincoln to commit an error. The hand of the Supreme ruler over men is ever with him. Then to those who are to perpetuate the glories of this republic there is no better advice than to study the life of Lincoln, pattern after it, make a religion of it, and above all things remember that Lincoln tried to do that which Christ taught men to do. A Hoy Again. The director of one of our large corporations was in the habit of prowling around the office. One morning he happened to come across the dinner pall of the office boy. His curiosity led him to take off the cover. A slice of home-made bread, two doughnuts, and a piece of apple pie tempted the millionaire's appetite. He became a boy again, and the dinner pall seemed to be the same one he carried sjxty years ago. Just then the offl.ce boy came in and surprised the old man eating the pie- he had finished the bread and doughnuts. "That's my dinner you're eatins," said the boy. "Yes, sonny, suspect It may be; but it's a first-rate one,, for all that, I've riot eaten so good / a one for ' sixty years." ' — ' "There," he added, as he finished the pie, "take that and go out and buy yourself a dinner; but you won't get so good a one," and he handed the boy a five-dollar bill. For days after, the old man kept referring to the first-class dinner hehad eaten from the boy's pail. "TUttt's Bim's T9H." . Little Cornelia was teaching her young- or sister, Margaret, to print letters and words.

Pecki Mis advice to youtig men who desire to get rich In money is aS follows: There ate no rules which can be laid down which Will lead to the de« Sired ehd, but there,, are certain ele-> ments which are essential and without which the attainment of Wealth Is lm«« possible. Prominent among these may: be mentioned industry, thrift, persls-| tence, and courage, and' above alt proper habits Ih life, combined with' system. BUt It should always be borne; In mind by yoUng men that persistent; apllcatlon Is absolutely necessary tot success. "Few things are Impracticable! In themselves, and It Is for want of application rather than means that mert fall In success," as has been Welt said by a French writer. Too many young men are discouraged because of the obstacles they find early In life. They cannot pursue a path of roses, but must not be discouraged by the thorns that Inevitably appear. It has been well said that "a certain amount of opposition Is a great help to a man. Kites rise against the wind. Even a head wind la better than none. No man ever Worked his passage anywhere In a dead calm." The Importance of the courage referred to above Is expressed by Shakespeare In the following words: "Our doubts are traitors. And make us lose the good we oft might win -« By fearing to attempt." I think If the young man of to-day, would cut out the above quotations and; Impress' them In his mind they would prove valuable through life.' Troubled Girl. ' Mai wants to know on what day ofi the week September 9, 1876, came; also,! what we think of a girl who wrote a! sharp letter to a young man who had', broken his promises to her. Answer:! September 9, 1875, came on Thursday. As to the letter and the circumstances, It Is a rather hard case. Indeed, all such things are rather trying; but human nature Is a curious sort of an affair, and when a man won't, he won't, and that Is the end of It. If he does not wish to come to visit you, the only thing for you to do is to let him alone, for Impatient and sharp words will only make matters worse. Certainly, If he does not desire your society, you should have sufficient pride not to desire his. It Is quite possible to get over affairs that sort If one sets about it In earnest. You know what Shakespeare says: "Men have died, and worms have eaten them, but not for love."

Archie wants to learn photography, but has no means and would like us to tell him how to go about learning It, and how long- it would take to become a good photographer. Answer: It Is not at all easy to advise people how to become experts when they have no means to pay for instruction. In the present case there seems to be only one way, and that is to go us assistant or helper to some photographer and leai-n the business by practical and •» slow, hard work. Perhaps you could give your services fov a certain number of hours In a day, and thus acquire a knowledge of the art. It would scarcely pay to try to learn it from books or any printed directions.

Lexington, Ky., Special: A most pathetic reunion of husband and wife, after manw years of separation, took place here the other morning, when Richard W. Mackey found the woman he deserted sixteen years ago domiciled In a modest cottage supporting herself and child by dressmaking. The wife, although overcome with joy, 'was , placed in a most peculiar position, since she had thought him dead, and has since he deserted her, been twice married. Her maiden name was Prescllla. Hearn, she being the daughter of a wealthy Alabama planter. She married David Spauldlng three years after Mackey deserted her. Spauldlng lived only a few months and after his death she married Julius Roach of Sheridan, Miss., whom she deserted after living with him only a short time. Mackey went to Leadvllle, Colo., and afterward roved over New Mexico, Kansas, Arkansas, Idaho and Montana. Tired of rambling, he set out to find his wife, and It was after much difficulty that he located her In this city. He was surprised when, she told him the varied experiences she had since she had given, him up as dead, and they are now living happily together. She had no children by either of her other husbands, and her boy, born a month before Mackey left her, is almost grown. < 'r If' •I Code of Elephantine Manners. The following Incident may prove Instructive to some of your numerous readers, lllustrattng the power of memory In the matter of Instruction In the code of elephantine manners.. While visiting.the Zoo some time ago* I took my children to see the elephant and to give them a ride. After the ride I wanted to give the elephant a bun, and to make him say "Please" said "Salaam kuro','—1. e., make a salaam. The animal looked at me hard for some time, with the bun In my hand. At last memory came to his help, and up went his trunk, and he made a most correct "salaam." The keeper seemed very- much surprised and asked me what it meant. I told him It was a point of good manners for an elephant to raise- his trunk up to his forehead If any' one was going to feed him, and that frequently elephants will ask In this polite manner for something when they, see any one pass by who Is likely to feed them. The keeper assured me he had never seen the elephant do this before, and If I'remember rightly he had been In charge of the animal since It arrived from India, and that It was one of those which took part in. the grand procession to Agra when his royal highness, the Prince of Wales, visited India, and where r doubtless saw it. For seventeen years this animal had never heard these words.—London Times. '0?
