love with one of the prettiest girls in Lyons,
an exquisite blonde, who had given him
all her heart, but having not a sou to give
along with it, had pledged herself to wait
till Monsieur Charles should be a colonel.
It was plain that neither of those purposes
could be accomplished if he was to make
hie bed that night in the bottom of the
Seine. He therefore postponed the per"-
formanre until at least he should bleak the
matter to the, fair Euphrasia, in a billet
worthy of a Frenchman in despair.
Ordering coffee, pen, ink, and paper, he
sat down to write. To give him a clearer
view of the subject, the smart garcon of
the cafe lighted a small lamp in the rather
dark box into which he had throWn him
self and his sorrows. Ile 'began; dashed 1
/ea few sentences of supreme tenderness,
and then paused, as is usual even with the
most enamoured, for a fresh flaw of ideas..
The lamp bad thrown its radianeeSon a
showy parer, and the mirror bad returi-
ed the radiance on Charles. His oye
caught sight of himself at full length in the
mil: or. Few. men, Frenchmen not ex
cluded, think themselves altogether-desti
tute of personal charms; and Charles was
really a handsome figure, such as might
'its possessor, particularly when it was his
last look. But why should• it, be his last
look, wtui t_4,thought that glanced into his
mind? Mahan this classic bead, jetty
moustachwe e exquisite imperial, and air
chevalrie go for nothing? Are the hearts
of the women turned to stone?' 'Are there
not hundreds of maids, wives, and widows,
that every week marry 'movers compared
to this brilliant physiognomy; and am I
good fur nothing but to be picked up by a
fishing net, laid , out in the Morgue, and
paragraphed to to-morrow's Moniteur?—
Something must be tried."\
But that something has formed the dif
ficulty of heroes and geniuses since the he ,
ginning of the world. While he paused,
he was struck with the voice of a Jew
Rabbi, who had marched from the further
end of the cafe, offering tbd tickets of a
lottery, in which the prizes Were bon-bons.
The sound caught his ears, and the idea
flashed into 'his head like lightning. " A
lottery, why, every thing is done by lone
re-7-the world's a lottery. Fortune is a
lottery--commissions in the hussars are a
lottery—the throne is a lottery, in which
Louis Philippe has only drawn the first
prize. Marriage is a lotterys—why, then,
should not husbands be a lottery? Why
should I drOwn myself, when I could be
drawn for by half the females of Fran'te,
make some rimy woman : the happiest of
this happy, and make myself rich into the
He threw aside his paper, called the
Jew into the 'box, fotind by a few leading
questions, that he was a Jew who knew
the world—a quick, sagacii}us, sharpwitted
rogue—discussed the project of the live
lottery with' him, and, before be left the
box, had converted his lase letter into a
charming address to all the charming wo
men of France to purchase tickets in a
lottery, of which the capiitil.prize was to
be the most captivating of mankind.
The Jew was delighted with the projech

era, and shirk as- pitch, lied them to the
Jew's 'domicile. A passage like* the_ en.
trance to a jail there led-them into a room
which had a very 'striking resemblance to
a dungeon; and Charles begiiii to think that
he had trusted the Jew too far—but what
could he he robbed of? Rtill he might be
sold to the surgeons. The idea was not
