Hloui't bad JuhI telHted an amusing
anecdote ot bis Uoiton sojourn, nnd
we were silently iiulllntr In that n(?rec
nlilu lunjruor that urlses from a. kooiI
weed nnd n good story.
On diawlnB his card-caso fiom his
pocket M. I.ebon broiiiilit foith a small,
bright object that Kllstenoil a serond
In the lninpllRht nH It fell to the floor.
He stooped for It with lather undue
haste: with so much haste, In fact,
that ho filled our attention to u move
ment that otherwise would have passed
"Whnt Is It?" Iniuilied M. Hlouet.
Without i woid I.c-bon handed him
the object ho had dropped, but ejeil
him raiefiilly as It was examined.
"A key." lemnrked M. Hlouet. "a
Key, und ovldelitly of trolil," and he
passed it to me.
t held In my hand u key of peibaps
an Inch In length, and half as wide.
There was nothing partlculaily re
markable about It, unlcht It weie the
material of which It was composed:
that appeared to be gold. Suddenly my
"ye caught sight of u date and an In
scription upon tho ling of the key "1

"A cuilous key," I suggested, (is I
teturned It to M. l.ebon; "tell us about
The one addressed puffed assiduous
ly for a moment or two, as he twilled
the mysterious key between his fore
finger and thumb, but he made no
"Come, come," said M. Hlouet, as be
leaned forward with luteiest, "there
must be something to tell nbout a key
like that. Why not let us have It?"
"You are right, gentlemen: theie Is
a curious story concerning this key,
and, since you deslte It, I will tell It
to you; for truly, gentlemen, without
exaggeration, this little bit of metal
that I hold In my hand, has one of the
moht remarkable of histories."
"Tell It! tell it!" we both exclaimed,
In a breath.
Fiesh cigarettes were lighted, and,
still holding tho key in Ills hand as
If to bear witness to what be s.ild,
M. Lisbon began his stoiy.
"It was In 1S7I, just after the sur
tender of P.trK The second empire
had fallen. Monsieur Thiers and his
pirty held the government. Uvldenca?
of the terrible Commune weie on every
hand, still the city was beginning to
look like the habitation of a civilized
people. One morning, Les Journal des
Pebats announced the death, at Ver-
'illlej., of a ltusslau lady, who, for
moie than twenty yeiiis, bad kept all
tlm gossips of the Pails salons busy
on-crnlng a mysleij that teemed to
suiioui'd her. For leasons that 1 shall
piescnth explain, she beeamc knoiwi
as I,a P.une a la Clef.' Now a nlck
nuiiio In l'ails means n great deal
more than It does here. When one Is
nicknamed theie one canlos that name
to the grave. The notice In Les Jour
nal ties Debuts mentioned 'La Dnine a
la Clef est moite.' It did not give lir
own name; that would have signified
nothing. The paper concluded by say
ing tint she died, aged forty-five, In
complete holltude. It seems that her
husband who was much older than
hbc, had visited her reguluily every
six months during the past ten years
and then had disappeared, no ono
knew wheie. All was mysterious
about this 'Lady of the Key." Ono day
came to her the news of her hus
band's death. She survived nlni but
a shoit time, nnd It was vvhlspcis.l
that she hail allowed heiself to die
from hunger. That was all th nolle-)
nf her death had to say about, tho
mattei ; the mysteiy still le.-n lined
unexplained, and the Intel est eoncein
Injr her gievv less and less und grulual

M. Lobon paused to tellght his I
Mitctto, which he had allow "d to go
out. After doing this, he settled back
In his chair, puffed once or twice, but
did not f-eem at all Inclined to con
tinue the stoiy.
"Well." I ejucul.ited, "go jn. That
!- no story. Why, you haven't even
said what the mjsteiy was, or why
she was called 'La Dame a la Clef.'"
"Ah ves," he leplled peinlvely,
"Multo right. 1 had foigotten. Gentle
men, I have not said that unci w.ib
beautiful, yet such was the case. Her
face was one of the loveliest that 1
have ever seen; her figure vvns per
fect, nnd "
"Well?" Intel i upled M. Hlouet, some
"Gentlemen, I will not bore you,"
continued M. Lcbon, smiling; "simply
Imagine her beautiful in fnccand form;
then, gentlemen, around her neck,
which wus of the purest mold, vvns
riveted a golden chain, to which was
attached this key. And, gentlemen,
fiom the first of June, 1848, to the day
of her death, the chain never left her
neck, nor the Key the chain."
lie paused again, nnd once moie
seemed disinclined to go on.
"Well," said M. Hlouet, "we have the
mystery; now for the solving of It."
"Gentlemen." continued M. Lobon,
smiling sagely, ns he tipped off the
ashes of his clgaiette, "I have told you
all that anybody but myself knows; is
that not enough? You now know what
all Paris knew; are you not satisfied?'
and he laughed quietly to himself.
vv e smoKeii for a row moments In
silence, both M. Hlouet and myself sui-
mlsltiff that the best way to hear the
lest of the toiy was to leave the nar
lator completely to himself. In a mo
ment the latter began again, speaking
tapldly and In shoit sentences.
"In 1S4S her husband owned u coun
try house near Passy. She was then
young and g..y no chal'i or kv
adorned her neck then. One day she
was Htupilhcil bv her loid. shutting

c milage descended the hill, the poor
woman snw flames Issuing from the
windows ot the villa. She fainted.
Thiee dns she lemaiiied unconscious.

"that Is the key."

In the first years of his reign he was
often mistaken for somo country gen
tleman. People, says the Gattlols, ad
dressed him In familiar terms, and he
took great pleasure In talking with
them and homing what they had to
hny about the king, the government
and the nffnlrs of stnte. One day,
while drolling In the environs of the
town, ho got Into conversation with
:i peasant who was soiling vegetables.
Suddenly the! man's horso slipped
down, nnd the vegetables were scat
tered In nil directions. The king, while

blaspheming, proceeded to mnko the
horse get up and to gather the vege
tables which the peasant was taking

peicelvitiff Hint his conn tide was nono

King Gooige possesses the magnifi

twelve miles fiom Athens. It Is one ot
the largest domains In L'utope. At the
