they were on tho terrace tho Count, if
not tender, had at least grown poetical,
and gradually Mine, do St. Ango allow

into that sllenco which is love's elo

Wllon, after a few minutes, tho Count
entered tho drawing-room apparently
unconscious of tho rudeness ho had been
guilty of, tho gentlemen were at cards,
ind immediftely proposed to tho Count
"If it is agreeable to you ; for myself
it makes no difl'ereitco."
"Exactly what you like."
M. Canilae, who was very fond of

Count to ecurle.

"You are a bad shot, General."
"Let mo feel your pulse," said the

will tell you whnt I am a man with

"Wo know that."
"Not figuratively," said tlio cheva
lier, "but literally."
"Hah !" said tho doctor, "you could
not live an hour."
"My heart was taken out of my bo

deeply, oh ! so deeply, nnd tho physl

Thn Count opened tho boom of his

"ivot at all, slnco I live. Thn doctor
took away my heart in n silver box,

Tho doctor for Fomo minutes looked
intently at tho Count. Then ho took

"Yes, if you could persuade him that

"I think I could," said tho Haronne.
For some days the party nt Iho chat

"Count than sho had boon before, nnd
that ho seemed to get accustomed to her

did ho pronounce.
At length Mine, do St. Ango being
alono with liltn, took his hand, nnd in
n low, trembling voico addressed him :
"Count," said she, "I havo a confes

"Yes ; you know your heart wns ta

"Then this is why I seem to desiro

exclaimed St. Floy; "to think that I

It Is lovo ; it Is happiness ; it is the

"What does this mean?" exclaimed

"It means," said tho doctor, "that,

Tho coroner's Jury was summoned tho
other day In a Texas town to sit upon a
mnn who died suddenly in his bed. Tho
Jury proceeded to tho house, looked
at the corpse, nnd began tho inquest.
The doctor explained tho easo to them,
nnddrownmnp of tho man's interior, so
as as to show thojtirymen how n wholo
lot of Latin things inside of him thero
got mixed up somehow with a parcel of
other classical mnchnicry, and produced
a perfectly terrific combination with
another Latin title, which killed him,
of course. Tho Jury said tho easo was
perfectly plain. Such an accident ns
that among tho man's internal Latin
must havo destroyed any ono. Tho
only wonder was that ho lived an hour.
So a verdict was brought in of " death
In nccordanco with the evidence." Just
ns tho inquest ended tho man awokc,and
the fact was discovered that tho deceased
person was iu tho adjoining room, while
tills wretch had only been asleep. Tho
question that puzzles tlio coroner now is:
What to do with tho -sleeper? To our
mind it will admit of an easy solution.
If that mnn has been found dead by n
Jury of his countrymen, hois dead, no
matter what ho thinks about it, or what
tlio apparent facts are. Thero is nothing
in tho Constitution of tho United States
or in Washington's farewell address to
forbid his burial; and if wo wero that
