After that Dunu sal down and calmly discussed the situation with himself. He coticluled that he would forgive the insult to himself, but could not overlook the (act that the goddess of justice had alio been insulted, from the fact thut the insult had beeu of fered to him in bet' presence Then lie glanced upward ut "tbe lovely lady with the scales'' and he fancied she smiled u forgiving smile. That settled the matter. Dunn hunted up Judge Archbaid and told him bo would not proceed against Morau, as ho was satisfied that it was all a joke. AMUSEMENT NOTES. Dumas' delightful story of "The Three Musketeer,' will be presented at the Academy this evening by Alex ander Salvini. perhaps the best expo nent of tbo great author's idea. Sal vini, in addition to being an almost perfect actor, is an almost perfect swordsman. He Illustrates to a degree the bediity and the race of the only fair wear.- n in existence where a little man is not handicapped by a big one. The swordsmanship is, : however, only a concomitant to the story, even if an important one. Little is there left in Dumas' great story that is essential, that Is not followed bv the dramatizsr, and nothing is left undone that the dramitlait would wish to luvo done.
