THE FAMILY JEWELS.
TRANSLATED P£OM THE GERMAN OP t. BCHUCKIHQ.
It was about an hadrpaSt midnight
when Gaston bade Mopi d'Ayelon; good
night and left the Ferule deBjAngefc : He
had gone nut into thfe^ark oeijai n' ; at un
enviable mood; with anger and resent
ment in his heart. Valentine’s scornful
declaration- had roased his anget more
than his belief in its irrevocability. Val
entine was his by every tie that bound a
betrotbed-in-France, and the hasty passion.
of a young girl could not so easily alter
these Only this cursed German
could break the first conditions of the
betrothal by claiming Valentine’s inheri
tance. And this German whom he had
so surely thought to destroy had escaped!
He had meant to deliver him a prisoner
to the franctireurs at Neufchateau ; from
whence be would be sent south, and by
some-, means prevented from ever troub
ling any one again—and now be he had
escaped after all, and escaped through
Valentine’s assistance! Was it not
enough to drive him almost frantic with
disappointed rage? Nor could be vent
bis spite by telling her why be had wish
ed to ; destroy tbe.German, for Valentine
would very likely, in a fit of nonsensical
generosity and honor, after bearing of
her father’s crime, renounce the inheri
tance to the stranger. No, she must nev
er know anything about it; and it was
well be could trust in Ellen’s discretion,
for be had confided the secret to her ; she
had every reason to fear Valentine’s
sense of honor; for would not the loss of
the d’Avelon estate affect her, who con
sidered herself d’Avalon's future wife ?
There might a time come when the
knowledge of the secret would greatly as
sist her in her struggle-for the mastery :
and Gaston himself would not bestitate to
use the wtapon Max had placed in bis
power should the opportunity ever occur.
Wbat could have become of the fellow ?
He could not possibly have reached Void,
-for had Valentine confessed that she
knew the road was guarded. No, it was
more likely that she had concealed htin
somewhere, not near the house, for Gas
ion baa noticed how thoroughly her hair
was drenched, she most have been in the
drizzling rain some lime. Perhaps it was
in the maid’s grotto ! Ga&ton halted sod
denly as this thought occurred th him.
The idea was plausible—yes it must be.
Ho would hasten and recall the work
men—or should be first satisfy himself
himself that the German was there—”
His subtle train of thoughts was sud
denly interrupted by a footfall approach
ing ; nearer and nearer it came, and Gas
ton perceived a small figure which at the
moment halted and demanded:
•‘Who’s .. .
••Ah—is it you—Herr Dive land ?” ex
claimed Gaston in a stammering voice;
“you,come—from—the maid’s grotto V”
“You know that?” asked Max In sur
“Certainly—Valentine told me,” an
swered Gaston promptly, perceiving his
“She went to Givres for me and
commissioned me to release you from
your uncomfortable quarters, and bade
me take you home with me to spend the
remainder of the night."
“Indeed ? You see I have left my by no
means pleasant retreat. I was feeling ex
tremely ridiculous in that dark, damp
h<de, and though I gratefully acknowl
edged Fraulsin Valentine’s, anxiety, yet
I determined in try and find the way
home myself. I came through the ravine
a'ud happily recognized this road which I
knew led to the Ferine. 1 meant to gel
my horse if I could/and if not, make my
way there on font. * I would not have had
much difficulty, for the night is too dark
lor any one who is careful to be discover
ed. and had I met a whole battalion of
your brave franctireurs they could. not
have captured me, for I could have con
cealed myself in any hush.”
“You may rest quite easy ; there U no
one to disturb you—least ol all the franc
tireurs of Neufcbateau. The whole cause
of your disturbed nigh’s rest —and mine
also—is but au idle fancy. There are
iron-works about half a mile from the
Forme; some thirty or forty men are em
ployed there.\ After yon bad retired Val
tine heard trombone of the maids that one
of the servants had gone to the forge late
in the evening, and her girlish fancy im
mediately perceived a plot in th|s occur
fence. She imagined he had gone to
bring lhese L savage men to capture and
perhaps murder you. She sent for me
because I employ these men, and in her
anxiety went so far as to beg you to fly,
herself conducting you to that romantic
spot. It was a nonsensical piece of busi
ness I My men are sleeping soundly and
noi'er'en dreaming of invading the Ferme
like a band of plunderers. I succeeded in
calming Valentine’s chimerical fears, and
have just left her to obey her mandate and
beg you to accompany me to Givres. It is
also Mons. d’Avelon’s wish you should
come with me—he is wonderfully ill-bu
morcxl at Valentine for her childishness.
But if you insist on returning fo the
Ferme ot course I will conduct you there,
although I don’t much fancy tramping
b»dk there and home again, and 1 assort
you y.>u will be just as comfortably with
me. Besides you can speak to my moth
er iu the morning and learn a great deal
about Mons. d’Avelon—s> come with me,
it is not far to Givres”
Gaston had already moved forward and
Max turned also and followed, though
ntu.er r» loM*utly. He could not well IC»
fuse the Frenchman’s candid offer; It
would seem rather absurd to disturb the
inmates of the Ferine at this hour, and
the prospect of the lovely walk to Void
was by np means enticing. Set he silent
ly walke£ ! by. bis conductor’sslde. Gaa
tdirfelt this unexpect
ed turn (|f affalrg, asjmnte as bis
might betray his delight. They exchang
ed an occasional monosyllable as they
plodded along; Gaston with the utmost
miry road to his companion, and; assuring
him from linfe” to tnrie that Givres was
At last they reached it; it was sepa
rated from the Feride by a bill at the foot
of which stood the lordly mansion. Gas
ton opened the large garden gate and ad
mitted Max, who thought he recognized
an‘ English park, judging from the num
her of trees and amount of shrubbery.
They then proceeded over a graveled
walk across a lawn, beyond which the
walls of a stately building were discerni
ablc. All was dark save a solitary light
in the ground floor.
“This is Givres castle,” said Gaston,
leading his companion toward one
of the two projecting wing-like struc
tares; here Max saw a low wall with high
iron spiked railings, surrounding the
court in front. As they entered the lat
tice gate Gaston locked it and put the key
in his pocket. Proceeding across the
court they ascended a stair lead ing to the
portal, through which a handsome en
trance ball, tastefully decorated with ex
otic shrubs, was visible; a rich carpet
covered the centre of the tessellated hall;
a burning lamp on a little marble table
shed its faint light around. They enter
ed the hall, Gaston carefully locking ibis
door also, and withdrawing the key as
Max bent over a vase of rare flowers. -
The heir of Giyres now took two lamps
from the table, and lighting them gave
one to Max and bade him follow ; they
ascended the broad stairway leading to
the next story and a long
gloomy hall. Halting before tall, highly
polished folding doors, which Gaston
threw open, and they entered the luxu
rious bed chamber, Max noticed how
strong the doors and bow thick the wall's
“I hope you will rest comfortably here
after your night’s wanderings, atj.d the
fright Fraulein Valentine must have giv
en you. I hope you will find everything
you require—if there is anything I can
do for you before I leave pray do not hes
itate to speak. I’m afrail the water in
the ewer is not fresh, I—”
“Thank you—thank you, Mons de Hi
beaupierre! Pray don’t trouble yourself
any further, I shall do admirably. Let
me beg of you to seek the rest I’m snre
you requsre—good night —good night„
_ _ rui™ trrrrca -x< mftemrsrjr ~ and ~6Tosed
the massive doors behind him. Max now
took the lamp from the table he had plac
ed it and examined the walls. He beheld
some ancient English copper engravings ;
the furniture was of antique form, and
had little of modern French luxury.
Everything seemed more magnificent
and grand than the unpretending ar
rangements at the Fcrme des Auges.
“Strange there is but one door to this
large room—«l looks like the interior of a
tower,” be muttered, and the thickness of
the walls verified his conjecture.
A large comfortable looking bed stood
opposite the door, and our wearied Ger
man warrior hesitated not to test its com
fort. He extinguished the lamp and sunk
back among the pilloWs with a ol
satisfaction and almost immediately fell
into a deep sleep.
When Gaston left his guest lie softly
turned the key in the lock, then hasten
ed through the long corridor, halting sud
denly at the end and laying his hand
thoughtfully upon bis chin, gazed fixedly
at the wall. There were now but two
ways to accomplish his design ; one was
to hasten to the huts of the laborers, who
could dispose of the solitary officer in a
moment; the other, to ride \p Neufcha
teau and procure a troop of franctireurs,
which would take more time, but which
would be more honorable to take the
man—he had brought home an invited
guest, as a prisoner of war. He could
then be sent to Algiers—anywhere, from
whence be could never return.
Gaston de Ribeaupierre was not the
mao to hesitate at trifles when once re
solved, and that this German most be de
stroyed, was no longer to be denied.
He hastily descended the stairway and
noiselessly h ft the house.
TO BE CONTINUED.
THE HAUNTED SCHOOL-HOUSE.
Interesting Account by the Teacher-
All Abont the Ghostly Boy, the Aiii>
mated Brushes, iTravellne Dustpan,
We are able to lay befor our readers
these interesting extracts from a letter
written by Miss Lucy A. Perkins, teacher
at the hannted school house in Newbury
port, in answer to inquiries concerning
an account of the affair published in a
The account you send me is true, with
a few exceptions. When I first saw the
boy, he was neatly attired in a brown
suit of clothes, uimmed with braid and
buttons of the srme color. When I
reached forward to grasp him, be seemed
not like the boy, bat vapory, or, as I can
only describe it, like a thin cloud scud*
fflng across the room; st ill be seemed to
bare the boy form. Reports from some
of the Boston papers say I fainted; such
is not the case. I knew where I was and
what I was about just aswellasl^
I am writing. ' y- ‘i*
One day Isent a boy oat to hang the
brushes, ect He waa dht
inlinuteA After he ~ had tak||^^nat t ;
three raps came on the door
yhere the brashes were
“Miss Perkins, can I go out and aee whtJni
there?” I told him
schoolroom door open.” He did it, and
when be opened the brash-room door (I
sat where I could aee all this) every on* of
came falling off the nails where they were
- hung; some atrnck l htm in the' facer sothe
on the top pi Jthe head... The' dust-pan,
banging'bn a hail at Some distance above
the brushes, came tumbling down, to; the
floor with a vengeance. It then stood on
its handle, then pn the bottom edge, ! and
continued on so till it entered the school
room, and then it was placed as nicely
against the partition as if I bad done it
myself. Just as soon as I’d raise the ven
tilator, a black bill, like a cannon ball,
would begin to roll around the attic, and
make such a noise I would be obliged to
lower the ventilator. One day the room
was as quiet as it could possibly be, and
all at once some one in the attlq called
out, “Dadie Pike !” Dadte thought I
spoke, and said “What’m?” I said to
him, “Can you say your lesson?” Since
the boy affair took place the attic' has'
been fastened up. Locks and keys are Of
use, however, for there is as much walk
ing up stairs, and sometimes the hammer
ing and nailing. Once in a while sounds
as of some one walking will come down
the attic way, go across the entry and
open the outside door, and be gone per
haps ten minutes, after tl Is quiet again,
the door will open, and be, she or it will
go op stairs; ; * ■ .*« . *

with a person of that belief and never

of the sort should take place where I am,
is more than I can account for.
. The cause /of woman’s rights has met
with a blow jin England. A judicial de'
cision has been rendered which attacks
not merely the claim of the wife to he in
dependent of and superior to her has
band, but even her right to share equally
in one of the most indispensable privi
leges of any household. It is not her
right to the metaphorical and symbolic
trnwsers which is denied, but her reason

marital blanket. -
It has hitherto been supposed the
wife had a property in the undivided; half
of the marital bedstead, mattress; and
other accessories,- which could only tie de

has supported'this view : by
granting to the widow the dote owner
ship of her bedstead and bedding; while
the practice, peculiar to slighted husbands,
of advertising their runaway wives as
having resigned all rights in respect to
bedroom furniture, strongly supports the
same theory. But now we are told by an
English lodge that this view is a wholly
mistaken one, and that the wife who at
tempts to enforce it is guilty of a misde
The case which called out this decision
originated in the vigorous conduct of a
wife who returned to her home late in the
evening, and found her husband monopo
lizing the entire supply of sheets and
blankets, wholly regardless of her feel*
togs or the state of the weather. Indig
nant at his selfishness, she proceeded to
establish her rights with the fire shovel,
and to convince him with the poker of
the gross injustice of his conduct. The
ingenuity with which be 'had enchsed
himself in a maze of blanket, proved fatal
tp the integrity of his cuticle, for be was
unable to extricate himself before his
wife had proceeded so far in her argument
as to decorate him with a variety of neat
patterns of black and bine. The follow
ing day be preferred against her a charge
of assault and battery, of which she was
found guilty, and for which she was sen
lenced to fine and imprisonment.
The possession of a right implies the
further right to enforce it. If this in
jured woman could not enforce her claim
to half the marital blanket, it follows that
. her claim was not a legal one. The ef
fect of this decision is, therefore, to ap
prise the wives of England that they are
dependent for blankets wholly upon the
generosity of their respective husbands.
Hereafter, the selfish husband may con
demn his wife to shiver through the night
an protected, except by the casual mat or
the accidental hearth rug, and no woman
of foresight and caution wilt, consent to
enter the married state unless a proper
.provision of blankets be expressly guar
anteed in the marriage settlement. Thus,
while Mrs. Jex-Blake and her friends are
fighting for the unsubstantial shadow of
hospital privileges, they are losing the
indispensable substances of sheet and
blanket. Though they gain the sweet
privilege of covering the corpse of the
pauper, their triumph is embittered by
the thought that the law has established
a male monopoly of blankets, and that
the monster man is henceforth permitted
to revel in unlimited bed-clothes, while
the wife is forced to sue humbly with
the fire-shovel Tor a corner of counter
pane, and to feign boundless gratitnde for
the boon of a narrow strip of sheet.
