AN EPISODE Or THE Str.on or PARIS,
While tho German nrmy Inclosed In Its
Iron grasp tho most brilliant and pleasuro
lovlnp city of Europe, transforming In n
moment Its epicurean population into a peo
ple of heroes, tho environs once so gay nnd
so beautiful had experienced a change nl
most as great. 5Iost of the detached villas
were deserted, or occupied hy tho army, nnd
the villages, whoso regular inhabitants had
either taken refuge in Paris or fled to a dis
tnnce,wcro repopulatcd by a singular assem
blage of Individuals, belonging to all classes
of Boclety, and bound together only by the
tie of a common ratiorality, and the tieces
sity of finding a shelter and providing for
their dally wants.
The hamlet of Roulalnvllllers, which had
been thus abandoned, had received an en
tirely new colony, and its beautiful avenue,
carpeted with turf ol the roost lovely green,
had all the appearance of a camp. As long
as the season would permit cooking was car

with him from Colombes, whero he hnd be-
fore resided, a remarkably beautiful white
goat, called Fanchette. This creature, to
which her master was much attached, Jig-
ures in most of his pictures. Light and
graceful as a gazelle,she is represented some-
times cropping delicately tho green branches
of the hedge-rows and buhes, sometimes
entangled In a maze of brier ro.e,their pink
blossoms and gieen leaves lulling around
her in elegant garlands, nnd contrasting well
with tho snowy whiteness of her skin.
Fanchette was a universal favorite, am:
few there were at Boulainvillers who would
not have deprived themselves of a mor.'ol ci

they might reserve a mouthful for tho gnat.

We bavo on hand a large assortment of legal
iinal frequently relieved the miseries of the
siege. All were surprised at the wonderful
education which her master had succeeded
In giving her. He had even taught her
something of his art, and it was really extra
ordinary to see the sensiblo creature busily
employed in arranging pebbles on the ground
so as to form a rudo resemblance to a Iup
slap. Fanchette, who was present at this
scene, presented her horns In a threatening
attitude to the woman, and gently stroked
the shoulders of her llttlo friend with her
foot. At the sight of tho dumb nntmal's
eloquent appeal, the woman began to relent,
and calling tho child to her examined more
carefully the stato of things, when ho found,
to her horror, one of those largo and poison
ous caterpillars called In French "'procctiion
nairet," which had painfully irritated the
delicate skin of tho child.
It was about this timo that JIacIIenry,
continuing his artistic labors In spite of all
the difficulties of tho situation, resolved on
taking for tho subject of a new picture his
goat Fanchetlo musing the littlo Marie.
Fanchette lent herself with her usual intel
ligence and docility to his wishes ; and Ma
rie was represented lying among grass nnd
flowers with her four-fooled frieud bending
over her. This picture which was afterward
regarded as ono of MacIIenry's best works'
obtained the most signal success at the Par-
Is exhibition of modern art tho truthful
ness of tho design, tho freshness of tho col
oring, nnd the grace of the composition be
ing equally striking.
Rut theie bright autumn days sion passed
away, and very many recollect tho bitt' r
old of the sad Ciiristnm of that dismal
winter. Poor little Marie suffered so se
verely from It that after a vain attempt to
recall soma warmth by lighting a fire of
brushwood, the only fuel that could be pro
cured, her mother, as a last resort, put her
into her little bed, in the hopo that by heap
ing upon her all tho clothing she could pro
cure, the child might regain a littlo heat,but
it was in vain : no heat came, and the blood
had almost ceased to circulate in her frozen
limbs. At this moment Fanchette arrived,
and without waiting for an Invitation sprang
upou tho bed. It was in vain they tried to
drive her away ; Ehe only clung the closer to
her nursling, and, covering the child with
tier body, soon restored her to warmth and
There was one among the temporary in
habitants of lioulainvilliers for whom Fan
chette entertained an unmitigated aversion ;
this was a knife-grinder of the name of JI.n-
sicault. His appearance was certainly not
calculated to product) a favorable impres
sion, for his features were repuleivo mid his
expression disagreeable. A low forehead, a
cowling eye, and a short, thick-set figure
were the principal physical traits ot this
personage ; nor were they redeemed hy those
of his moral character. He had for his con
stant companion a large, ill-favored bull
dog with a spiked collar, who seemed to
share Ml the evil instincts of his master.
Every one wondered how tho knife-grinder
managed to feed this animal at a time when
it was so hard to find tho merest necessaries

snatched nt tho bread. Ho was prevented,
however, by tho goat, nnd with n toss of her
horns sho sent tho ferocious beast sprawling
to some distance ; but ho was only stunned,
not seriously hurt; and, furious at his re
pulse, ho sprang upou' tho poor goat, stized
her by tho throat, and shook her with rage.
Marie uttered piercing shrieks, and Mac
Henry, having got hold of a stick, ran tothe
rescue. A sharp blow on his head caused
him to lose his grip on poor l'nnchette, and
turn upon his new enemy, seizing him by
tho shoulder j but a peossnt, coming to tho
assistance of tho artist, forced tho dog again
to let go j and limping off nnd growling, he
at Inst took refuge beside his master, who
nil the while had been an unmoved Bpcctntor
of the scene.
Great was the general grief at the sight of
poor Fanchette motionless on tho gras,blced
ing profuely from tho Wound in her throat j
and strong tho indignation excited by the
tho ferocity of the dog and the conduct of its
brutal master. JIauy were tlio threats mut
tered against both j and there Is little doubt
nt least that the dog would soon have paid
tho penalty ho deserved had Fanchette's
wouna been mortal ; but on examination It
was found to be less serious than it appear-
1, and her mistor'-i cue of her noon efTact-
d a completo cure. Tho inhabitants of the
hamlet, however, resolved not to let slip the
opportunity for getting rid of the obnoxious
knife grinder. That ill-favored individual
was received wherever ho showed himself
with cries of "Bo off, and quickly, too, nnd be
careful we do not throttle your wretch of a
Unable to resist the general storm of in
dignation the man nnd his worthy compan-
on were about to take their departure; but
they had hardly reached the entrance of tho
village when they Were met by n party
bringing along with them an orphan1 boy
of about (i or 7 years of age, whose parents
had been found murdered some days' pre
viously in one of the detached cottages of
the neignborlmod, which some still ventured
to inhabit. The child, nt the sight of the
knifegrinder and his dog. uttered n loud cry
and covered his eyes with his bauds.
'What is tho matter, my poor little fel
low asked one of the hy-standers. At
length he was able ith difficulty to reply,
his words interrupted with deep sobs. "That
man 1 that dog I It was they that killed my
mother I I saw it nil from behind the cur
tain in which I was hid."
Everyone looked on in astonishment at his
neighbor, not knowing whether to believe
the strange assertion of the child, when Mac
Henry produced the pocketbook, and in
formed those around of its contents. The
child Immediately cried out that it wa his
mothers, and had any doubt remained it
would have been dispelled by looking at the
portrait that was contained'in it, for its re
semblance to tho poor little boy was stri
In presence of such proof there could be
no hesitation, and two men immediately set
nil' in pursuit nf tho fugitive; but he hatl al

lent him wings, so that before they could
reach him he had gained the protection of

however, in ovadiiig the fato he merited,
for shortly after the news arrived that tho
wretched man had fallen into tho hands of a
detachment of Frencli fracattireuse, and hav
ing been convicted of being concerned in
the burniDg of n farm, was immediately
condemned and shot.
JIacIIenry adopted the orphan boy, and
never hnd cnuse to repent of his generous
notion. "I have now two children," he
used pally to tny ; "for my gentle, liitclh
