These said -ttiat, -polite • oa f he was

insignificant creature. 'A great friend
of Billon's was Desroques. ' &printer,
wit() when in the courde of 1788 the
watchmaker's_, habitual . melancholy
increased; did all he ccinldio - enliven
him. With thin 'view, he, after Minh 1
persuasion, got Billon's consent to
have his name-pat np as & candidate
for the honor . , of being..admitted to
the select Company of the Arquebase- 1
Dillon was an excellent markiinitto t
and that together with the recommen•
dation of his friend, secured , his'ad
mission. to the company.
But the melancholy,,shaken off fur
a time,
_returned with greater fore
than ever, and was increased by the
occurrences of the year 17e9: The
watchmaker had lent a snit of money
at an interest of ten per bent. By so
doing ho laid himself open to a
charge of- usury, which was made by
his dishonest debtor. To lose hie in
terest and to be branded as al/surer
was too much for Billon, who told'
his , friend DeBroql3o3 that this was
the final blow ; that he would not
survive the iniquiteue sentence. Tinie
might have brought relief to his die
eased mind, es his friends In,no way
lost their esteem of. him.;. ; but ,the

d&ys ea did ; not ' stir from '' • Ome,
where, howevei,he was seen at work
as usual, and , he appeared ' i. lose
gradually the sense of his inierms.-
But although he dropped 'ln at the
cafe as before, and resumed .his 'old
habim, Billon Was revelving schemes
of vengeance. At one time ho thought
he would, kill; the commander of the
4rquebuse, but he' was only one, and
Billon's vengeance demanded I more
victims. I
The revolutionary excitement prom
ised to. bring Hilton his earnestly de
sired opportunity; - militia corps and
political clubs were instituted, and to
them fl eked citizens of all grades,
whonr social: jealousies had hitherto
kept apart; even Bilion called into
the ranks of the national guatd,found
that he was no longer shunned by
those who had taken the severest
view of his scrape. But the vindic
tive watchmaker wae not disarmed
thereby. In the mouth of drily, ' l7O,
ho made thefirst of several mysteri
rions expeditions to Paris, returning
with chests of merchandise, which he
kept carefully in his own bedroom, to
be unpacked by him alone without
witnesses. His wife saw with as
tonishment the arrival at the house
of a quantity of stout beamtohe des
tination of which was'qafte unknown
to her. A carpenter wartrought in,
and worked under Hillon'ii direction
at fixing poste and cross beimin
ibe roorn, i from which Madauie Hilton
was carefully excluded. To her ques
tions Hilton was elute, answering. at
most by a maliciouti smile ,• one day,
hoviever, after iseeo - g him furbinbing
and arranging a number of guns, she
ventured to make ',inquiry agisin.—,
France will be' invaded," replied
Hilton ; "it is the diity of every good
citizen to be ready. And now,:mind
your household affairs, and leave the
restto me," p ushing her by the
shoulder from his room. He still
went on with his prep
down doors, which he fitted with
slides, through which 'the end a a
gun barrel could -be passed. , The
fluor of the room was taken up, and
between the joists Dillon firmlyfixed
a large chest of powder, on which he
then placed an immense weight.; He
spent nearly six months in these
preparations, which were concluded
in December, without any suspicions
having been Awakened. , , . 1
the evening' of the 12th BillOn
showed great anxiety lest his friend
%Brogues shmild take- part in the
ceremony. The printer ailed a little,
but it required all Billon's persuasion
to extort an unwilling prelmsse.from
his friend to stay at home. On the
morning of the 18th also, Hilton made
Desroques again promise that he
would not stir abroad.] Other friends
has-also been yrarned -by him ;
Let ns now return to the iroces-
Bien which ice have left sit tho. Town

\''t got under way, and the beating of

out wife and, servant, and :the

he locked the door, and' threw 'the.

A wealthy . . and. pions lady lived
near, who bad , frepently relieved
the old 'man'. and his Wife. One day
when 'passing, she overheard them
grumbling, as 'tenet, about Adam and
Eve. She felt anxious to convince
them of • the importance of being con
tented With, the station in which
Providence had placed them, and bo w
wrong to bethus constantly murmur- -
lag at their lot in life.
The next_ morning the lady's ser
vant in livery, came to the cottage
wita a message from hie mistress ire-
Anekinitheold:ccinple to go nP to
the mansion: •
The looks uf. discontent vanished
fur once, as, the old folks were do.
,with such a mark of distinc
tionfroM one so very. rich. •
On arriving at' the mansion, the
lady reoei+ed them most kindly, and
thus addr&eed them :
1 ; 1 ,1 have pet apart two rooms in
my house, and so long as you attend
to my wishes, you will be allowed to
remain here, and have everything
needful for yotte ieomfort . 7 'But if you
disobey any of my rules you will be
immediately turned out and sent back
to your mud cottage."
Thank I thank you kindly,
`madam," responded the old man.
Never i fear ,oar doing anything
against your wishes, ma'am," added
tb.bVld woman.
" Very-'wel.o said the lady, " then
you will find a home here for life.",
Everything necermary for their
comfort was provided, and all went
bh well tor some time. There was
one thing that somehoW puzzled them.
• For several days there was placed
on the • dinner-table a covered _dish,
which they were desired not to touch.
"My lady desires me to,say, that
every dish is at your service except
`that one," said the 'servant.
On one such day, having nearly
finished their hearty'repast, the curi
osity of the Old woman was greatly
excited as to the contents of the for
bidden dish, and she sa.d to het hus
band : „ • . •
" Whatever can it be ?"
"Never mind," said the - old man-;
' we've had a capital dinner without
