It wtw ill tlio year 1870 that Itussian

lowliest peasant, was thrown into n

handsome sledio which was convoying
two ladies to tho Uuynl Theatre at St.

They were both English, and wore
stars in their profession.

off Iho stage into tlio green room to
look lor her irieml, ami, as suo entered,
all eyes were turned toward her in ad
miration; and well they might, for she
was a fair picture to behold, and was
quickly sin rounded by tho crowd, of
nobles and couttiers that usually haunt
ed tho theatre.
Her talk was liko herself: she was
the flue lady of old comedy, on and oil

friend, Mile. Evelyn Chatteris, nnd she

more beautiful than Olga Marchmont,
her stage rival, and dearest friend in
"I have not seen you for two days,
mademoiselle," said the prince; "this
trial of tho Nihilists is a weary one,
and a sad one, too.''
'Must they dio ! and Her sweet eyes
looked earnestly up to his. "It seems
very pitiful," she said, sorrowfully.
".No. mademoiselle, ' no replied, "tney
will not all bo condemned to death;
some of them will be banisned to Si
"It seems very dreadful, very pitiful;
and some are ladies, I hear?
"All the more reason that they should

their murderous schemes.'
Perhaps you arc right, she answer

"And yet you think wo nussians

is iustice, and law is law.
Tho tears stood in her eyes as sno

At this moment sho was called to ap'

was lett alone to meditate.
lie had enough to ponder over, for
ho had resolved to do what scarcely
anv man of his rank and position would
have dreamed of namely, to make this
actress Ins wife, if sho would havo him.
Sho was better, nobler, lovelier in Ins
eves t nan anv woman no nan ever

bred, anil ho knew lier to Do as pure as
any snow-flake, despite of her life; and

Olga answered for her:
"Of course sho does; Hoso to my Sil
via. will vour nignnoss sup wun uiu

Ho assented courteously, nut inero
was a cloud on his face. Ho liked and
believed in Mile. Olna, but ho did not
caro to think of his Evelyn associating
with a woman like Madame isopree.
" es. she was Ins hvulyu in hi9
thoughts already. Ho would havo been
less than man had he tailed to rent
ariuht tho timid, yet trusting look o
tho girl's eyes, as with n low, graceful
couitesv sho bade him "good-nigtii,
and followed her friend.
A visitor was awaiting their arrival
Mile. Marchmont gasped, ami stared at
nm with wild distended eyes,
Ho was but a youth of 19, his face
was handsome, his manners pousni'd
but his oyes were red and swollen with
weeping, and his yoieo onokoii win
sob as ho said:
"Oh. mademoiselle, all nope is gone;

or Hunnlioations. ho is doomed to die

Thero was a noiso as oi some onu ai

what incoherently, "tin, I1 rank, gol
somebody is coming."
Ilor stago power Bcrved her well; sho
Bhook out her curls nnd Her dross, oall
ed up her smiles, and received her visi
tors with bowituhlng grace. ?
It was a very gay supper, burgundy
and champagne (lowed freely, nnd after
tlio repast tho party played cards.
Tho fair hostess staked high, oareing
lltllo whether shu lost or won, bit tor
tunc savored her, nnd when tlio gamo
was over, and tho guents departed, shu
stood luiiniiiL' her lingers throuuh a
heap of gold which would havo inado
many a gambler feel envious.
"What shall I do with tho trumporyT
sho said with a hnrd laugh; "I havo
moro than I require already. Shall I
buy you a suite of jewels, Evelyn 1" w
said, as she passed her arm round her
lricnd s waist.
No, dear Olga, I want nothing from
you but your friendship, and that 1
prizo beyond any gow gows.
Olga leaned her head against tho
girl's innocent cheek, but did not ans
wer except to say:
"J.ets no up stairs, hvn, wo will lie
each other's maids to-night, for I halo
Mario's prying eyes."
Olga tossed her tresses back im
patiently, and pouring out some fresh
water, cleaned her laco iroin its stage
paint, which, oil tho boards, was a dis
figurement rather than a grace, for her
skin was soft and clear as alabaster.
Hut when this uiuht sho turned, after
having laved her face, to Evelyn, tho
girl was fairly frightened.
"Uh, my dear Ulga, what is tho mat
ter with youf Aro you sick! "ion look
to-ribly ill 1"
There was hardly a trace left of tho
brilliant nctrcss who had enchained
hundroils a few hours before by her
igio spells, fascinations and beauty,
the wan, white woman who had
faced her friend with a ghastly expres
sion of agony depicted on her haggard
"Not ill,'1 sho answered, "only mad
only tho most wretched woman in
the world 1"
"What is it, dcarf Can't vou eonlido
in mo? Oh, Olga, vou frightened mo!'
"Yes. I will tell vou.1' and a ouick
gleam of wild hopo lit tin her pale face.
V on can help me, Jtiva.
"I will tell you. It is a lifo I am ask

all that makes lifo worth living to mo."
She spoke eagerly and fiercely.
"What do you meant" cried Evelyn.
Explain all to mo at once."

"Yes," Evelyn replied in a tone of
great agitation, "of course 1 do.

"I cannot answer you to-night," sho
said, slowly; "I will to-morrow.'1
All Olgas entreaties failed to movo
her, and she went sadly to her own
room and tried to sleep, but could not.
'Olga must bo right," tho poor child
thought, as sho lay awake, trying to
still tho bitter pain of tho thought that

people erroneously stvled him.
She saw a benign, intellectual, kind

fatherly expression on his noble coun

ly girl, and he saw the look of deep
anxiety and pain depicted on everj
lineament of her face.
Sho would havo knelt at his feet,
but he would not permit her, but seat

"Aud so you havo come to plead

of that year were to bo epent by tho
priuco nnd princess in Russia.

happiness or tho Montroscs deepened

A Glance at Some of the Law-Makers
The correspondent of the Sunday
Scranton Jtepublican gravely aflirms
that the house of representatives is a
body peculiar to itself, i venturo to
say that, if that staid nnd dignified
body, tho senate, was transplanted in
tho house, iu a week tho grave nnd
reverend boys of tho higher branch
would bo just as hoydenish aud full of
mischief ns tho biggest infant in tho
house. It's catchin. Hut thoy aro
not all kittenish and frolicsome. A
few of them arc very dignified. Tako
J. McDowell Sharpe, of Franklin, for
instance. He is very dignified. When
J. McDowell arises and looks wise at
tho speaker and sideways at the Re
publicans on tho other side of tho
house, it is two to one'that some vig
orous fuiglish is about to bo launched.
Shorpo's greatest defect is ono he can
not euro ho is very deaf. If I had
mo bank account ot wiuis j. nuiings,
tho young oil member from Venango,
you wouldn't catch mo monkeying
around a legislature. Reside his
money Hillings has that jovial good
nature that characterizes all.
IIo was telling nw how ho might
havo mado 3,000,000 by buying au
Arizona copper claim, near Tucson,
for 819,000. "Why didn't you take
it?" I asked. "Hecauso another fel-
low got in ahead of mo. I never was
born to bo rich." Considering that
his shekels will aggregato about 200,
000, I think Mr. Hillings hovered on
the borders of truth when he mado
that last remark. Undo Jake Zeigler
is a stato character. All Democratic
state conventions aro hushed when
Undo Jake gets up to talk. Just so
docs tho house calm down and listen
when tho frosty-poled son of Hutler
speaks. Next to Uncle .Tako sits
Forth, of Philadelphia, an exceedingly
fresh young man. I believe I'd say
something mean about Furth if he
wasn't such an accommodating gen
tleman. He is always courteous, and
tho best talker for a Hebrew I ever
know. He is called tho Disraeli of
the house, but he lacks many of the
qualities of a statesman, and he talks
too much. Jerome H. Niles, of Potter,
tho man who discovered John J.
Mitchell (a fact ho doesn't caro to
boast about just now). IIo is keen
and sharp in debate, wilh a level head
and quick to think, ho does worry
the Democracy very much when ho
wants to. Niles is mentioned as a
candidate for auditor general. I think
you'll agree tho party couldn't do bet
ter. In front of Niles sits Laudis, of
Lancaster, tho spread eaglo orator of
the house, and tho great election re
former. When Landis flies his kite
into tho cloudy realms of oratory the
American eaglo just gets up and lifts
the roof oft' of the capitol. You can
thank Laudis for tho act punishing
fraud at primary elections, t haven t
dared to run for judge of primaries
since Landis had that act passed, for
fear I might mako a mistake and ho
A now faco iu tho house this year
is Hullilt, of Philadelphia. Ho is a
very smart young man, but ho says
"aw" as Philadelphiaw, Senataw and
Mistaw. I can forgivo most anything
but that. Ho is a beautiful talker,
and is listened to attentively. Like
wise ho has a healhty bank account.
Now, hero is a character MoNaniara,
of Hcdford. His chief peculiarity is that
ho never gets up to talk that ho doosen't
say something mean about tho Repub
lican party. The venerable Aiax Col-
l)01'"' ol Somerset, always has a retort
I for Moninara, but not so stinging as
couiii oo given oy n one, whose old
desk Colborn occupies. The venera
ble Neill, of Philadelphia, is an orator,
whom it is a pleasure to hear talk.
IIo is an ox-Methodist preacher, and
ho must have been a rattler in tho
pulpit. Neill drew tears to a good
many eyes not long ago while plead,
ing for an appropriation for a homo
for fallen women in Philadelphia.
Davis, of Forest, is a tall Rcpubluan
with long beard and nn odor of hem
lock bark about him, IIo is a chosen
leader on his sido aud knows a hem
to of parliamentary law.
