Then, as now, the Pont-Ueuf was the
heart of the capital, the center of movement
and circulation, of the flow and ebb not
only of inhabitants but of foreigners who
came to Paris. A few steps from the old
bridge was the Chatelet, a building com
posed of three towers, two of which pro
tected the entrance to the city, and at the
summit of the other was a gallery or bal
cony surrounded by an iron balustrade, that
was reserved for the gatekeepers and night
This Chatelet had its cachots or dungeons,
in one of which the prisoner was fastened
by chains in such a manner that he could
neither hold himself upright nor lie down,

' and where, owing to nitrations of the Seine,
his feet were always in the water, and he
had for companions toads and reptiles. Into
others the unfortunate yictims had to be let
down by means of a pulley. At the side of
the entrance to these dungeons was the
morgue, so called from the verb morguer,
which means to stare at, to look at fixedly,
as one would gsze on a dead body when
anxious to identify it. The morgue of the
Chatelet was composed of a very dark hall
and a little room raised some few steps and
badly lighted by a garret window. In this
room the dead body-was washed with water
from a well, which was still in existence in
1840, and was used by a little restaurant in
the Rue Pierre-au-Poisson, just where the
Chatelet Theater now stands.
The pillory, in full view of the shops, was
an octagonal tower topped with an extin
guisher shaped roof, while on a platform
stood the machine with horizontal holes in

The boulevards, for more than two ceii

at that time the favorite rendezvous of the
"gens de bel air," as were called the prom

avenues with four rows of trees.two of which

over a space of more than two leagues, was a

The cafes were well patronized, and at
their doors a concert was given from 2 r. ar

Tard and the Ene Caumartin was a novelty
like the hanging gardens of Babvlon; the
roofs and balconies of certain houses wero
converted into gardens, and from them was
a good -view of the extent of the boulevards
where some splendid hotels had been al
ready erected, while in the distance the hills
orMontmartre with their legendary wind

i gave for that purpose some land belonging
to her on the boulevard St Martin, was

of a fine of 80,000 ir it was not finished in
that time. There were those who said that
since this opera only took 84 days to build,
It would irretreviably crumble away, so it
was decided to test it with a gratuitous en
tertainment This incident, which is un
fortunately historical, does little honor to
humanity, but it showed the building tobe
sa'e in all respects. In the grand opera of
those days were such artistes as Lays,
Cheron, Miles, Maillard and.Gavaudan, all
of whom sang well, but still more wonder
ful was the grace and extreme lightness of
the danceis, Guimard, Saulnier and Zach
nerie, who seemed scarcely to touch the
ground and their like has never 'been seen
since. Mile. Guimard lived in Asiatic
luxury in a hotel situated in the Rue de la
Chaussee d' Antin, and it was simply
crowded "with art treasures,

Apropos, among the other popular sing
ers of the opera toward the end of the
last century was Mile. Maillard, but
who made her debuts as a dancer and ob
tained a brilliant engagement at the theater
of St Petersburg. On her return to Paris
in 1870 she entered a school of singing and

two years later made her debut with great
success, and her admirable voice, beauty,
imposing figure,and majestic manners made
her the most magnificent personification of
the grand lyric art of that period. She was
a very eccentric person, but this did not
diminish her success and popularity.
a celebrated duel.
The chronicles of those days relate that an
officer having, one afternoon in thelSoit de
Boulogne, in the presence of Mile. Maillard,
who was disguised as a man as was her
custom, insulted a lady whom he accused of
having deceived him, the goddess of the
opera struck him with a whip; a duel with
pistols followed, Maillard wounded her ad
versary, and' he learning the sex of his op
ponent hastily left the city.
The Comedie Francaise' then occupied a
beautiful house near the Luxembourg that
later on became the Odeon Theater. When
the first days of spring had arrived, every
body on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fri
days, under pretext of going to the little
church of the ancient royal abbey
situated at the extremity of the
Bois de Boulogne, went into the park
to show off thein finest carriages, horses
and livery. Dilapidated fiacres made way
for new and elegant coaches, and the latest
thing for style was the wiski, an imitation
of English vehicles, as dangerous for pedes
trians as they were for those who rode in
them, on account of their shape and great
height, but that wan of little consequence
lor the most fashionable ladies never dreamt
of appearing at Longchamps in any other
kind. Later in the day, when the fashiona
ble promenade was over, the gay public
went to admire the charming house that the
Count d'Artois was having built at the bot
tom of the Bois, a small, but charming
chateau, outside ot which were grottoes and
wild spots, while inside were boudoirs
draped in blue satin, and this little bijou,
built in two months, he called the Baga

THE SUGAR KING'S PLANS.
CIobi Spreckeli Talk Abont the Trait and
HU Own Frotpects.
Philadelphia, April 27. "I am not
in the Sugar Trust, and won't be until my
dying day," said Claus Spreckels, the sugar
king, as he stood in the hall of the Strat
ford just after his journey from the Pacific
Coast "I will be in Philadelphia for some
time now," he continued, "looking after my
interests here. "When my refinery will be
finished it will be the largest by far in the
. "It is said, Mr. Spreckels, that you have
not yet secured raw sugar for the Philadel
phia refinery. Is there anything in that
"I have nothing to say to that," was the
answer. "That is going a little too far into
a man's private business. I see the papers
say that we are all right as far as our bone
black goes. That is correct. We have a
vessel here now with a big load ot it, and
all the rest that is wanted can be had with
out any difficulty. I have just organized in
California a company with $5,000,000 capi
tal to erect beet sugar refineries. The work
will be begun at once, and we will soon
have some splendid plants on the Pacific"
Mr. Spreckels denied that he was in any
way interested in the recent rise in the price
of sugar. "Short crops were responsible
for a part of it," he said. The millionaire
refiner is accompanied by Mrs. Spreckels,
his daughter and his younger son. He is
well and hearty.
Cared of Malaria.
George Dixon, 22 Florida street, Elizabeth,
N. J., writes:
"I have been using Allcock's Porous Plasters
for the last five years. Some two years ago,
after having been sick for upward of six
months with malaria, I found myself with an
enlarged spleen, dyspeptic, and constantly
troubled with a headache, and my kidneys did
not act very well either. Having spent most of
mymonev for medicine and medical advice, I
thought to save expense 1 would use Allcock's
Porous Plasters, two on the small of my back,
one on the spleen, or ague cake, and one on the
fit of the stomach, just under the breastbone,
continued using the plasters about SO days,
changing them every week. At the end of that
time I was perfectly well, and have remained
so ever since." su

A Colored Farmer Alliance In South Car
Chaelestoit, April 27. The colored
folks in Carolina are organizing a Fanners'
Alliance. At a meeting in Union county
yesterday the organization was effected and
officers elected. The purposes of tho alli
ance are set forth in the following:
The object of the Colored Farmers' National
Alliance and Co-operative Union is to elevate
the colored people of America by teaching
them to love their country and their homes; to
care more for their helpless and destitute, and
to labor more earnestly for the education of
themselves and their children, especially to
Improve themselves in agricultural pursuits:
to become better farmers and laborers, and
less wasteful In their methods of living: to be
more obedient to the civil and criminal law,
and withdraw their attention from political
partisanship; to become better citizens and
truer husbands and wives.
The organizer, John D. Norn's, said:
It is by no means a political organization. Xhe
condition of things and our present situation
sets forth to us that our happiness and fortune
are not in politics. We have been so often de
ceived by political tricksters until our hope in
politics is lost We have been looked upon as
a political prey long enough. We expect,
tbroogh the Alliance, to let all parties know
that our race is no longer a mission field for
politics. Wo expect to confine ourselves to,
the Interest of that which will build up our
homes and make our firesides more pleasant.
It is not workiug against the interest ot the
white man, because anything that is against
the interests of the white farmer would be
against our interest
