My eminently correct rendersneed not turn up their aristocratic noses nt the vulvar lack ef delicacy be trayed by my exquisite yornj; man. Let him ntnong yon who dors not ndoro n dainty foot cast the first stone. Octavo Lntournolle that is jny ex quisite young man's name was not only a perfect dancer. He poessed not only two vory nimble, legs, but two very nim blo hands, whereof tho adroitness was tho admiration of Ell his friends. Indeed tho most expert conjuror wonhr-not havo been nsharaed to own him for a pupil. At his word of command watches passed from one pocket to another, gold coins vanished into thin itir, flowers grew upon hira as if on a magical bush he drew them forth from his pockets, his sleeves, his waistcoat, his cravat, in quantities sufficient to decorate tho corsages of all the ladies present, nnd tins after having, by way of preamble, turned his pockets inside out, rolled up his sleeves nnd opened his waistcoat. In a word, ho was the enchanter of the best drawing rooms and tho spoiled child of tho Indies. Perhaps, rather than tho spoiled child, he considered himself tho potted dar ling. At nny rate ho was in lovo, and ho made that fact known with tho audacity thnt often gives success. .Tho object of his adoration was the jonng wifo of General Pascnlon it is only tho husband's rank that restrains mo from mentioning th disparity of tlieir ages. But nil generals have young wives, which is only another proof that the truly brave do not recoil from dan gers of any kind. It is Irnditional in cases of this kind that the husbnnd should be jealous, but General Puscalon was not so. Bnt if he was not an Othel lo neither was he a fool. Trusting in the loyalty of his young wife, ho cherished no illnsions. Ho en joyed many a Palais Royal farce with hui wife by his side more often than not, which was imprudent perhaps bnt he also escorted hor to balls, novor plead ing hi ngo ns an excuse, nnd waited pa tiently for her till nftcr tho cotillon, and to all appearances his wifo was quite content. Perhaps she was so. But there were plenty of young fellows who would look down at you from the high superiority of their 25 years if you ventured to ox press such nn idea nnd say: "With nn old fellow like that! Really yon nre too refreshing." The general was not to bo laughed nt. He knew his danger, not only before all the world had soen it, but licfore any one else suspected it, and ho saved his honor like a mnn of intelligence which indeed ho conld Imvo done in no other way. And this brings fi down at last to the varnished sbpper of the exquisite young man. I have said that the affair took place In tho midst of a reception. Dancing was going on in the -larger rooms. The general was chatting with somo of tho older guests in a small room adjoining the one set ont with card tables. Ho happonod to glunco carelessly toward the players and sturted suddenly in sur prise. "Bless me," said ho, putting up his glasses, "there's my wifo at a whist tublo. I certainly thought sho was waltzing or polkuing or something, and there sho is playing whist. She must be vory tired, for she never plays curds and is always dancing. I shall have to scold her," he added, with a laugh, "for in dulging herself so much in her favorite pleasure that she has to do penance nt the card tablo," and ho strollod leisurely toward the pluyors. , A jostle knocking his glasses from his eyes ns ho reached the whist table, ho stooped to pick them up and saw be neath the tublo a slipper, a patent leath er pump, from which its tenant had es caped, and now, shod only in fine black silk hoso, was pusjiod against the little foot of tho general's wife. But he also 'noticod that the latter constantly avoided the foot that so persistently pursued hor Own. "Hum," said the general, taking in the situation at a glance, "the fortress is attacked, but it is well defended. J have nrviveil just iii time." Then, smil ing calmly ns if ho had seen nothing, leaning over his wife's chair, questioning, nnd advising her play, he devoted him self to n feat that would h.-tvo furnished a dnnuati:it with an irm iitibly comic theme, considering tho difficulties of tho situation. Tho general had undertaken to draw toward him with tho tip of his boot the abandoned slipper, provoking every instant sudden jerks from jostlcS feet, protestations from disturbed play ers, astonished looks from thoso who could eo tho extraordinary movements of his leg nnd tho remonstrance from bis wife: "My dear, what makes you knock my chair about so? You aro giving me a headache." At this moment tho mistress of the house came up to ask Lntonmelle if he would not perform some of his amusing tricks. "Certainlyj I shall be delighted," he answered nervously, preoccupied ns he was by tho extraordinary movements of the general, who stooped down just then as if to pick up something and immedi ately got up and left tho group. "Well, sir," said tho lady, "give me your arm, and 1 will introduce you. Your audience is growing impatient." "Certainly, luadaino, in just ono mo ment," said Latonrnello, feeling with his foot for his slipper, and so recom mencing the remarkable jig executed by the general a few moments m-fore. Kow tho oilier players laughed outright which they had not dared to do the first time. And tho mistress of the house stood there, surprised at being kept waiting so long ami wondering how much lonu'er her escort would keep her in that auiiinle. Impatient ladies emtio in hhoals to add their solicitations to those of their hostess. Ouv yo;i:'g man positively had to get out if the predicament somo how. llo did get out of it, but with only ono shoo, for he also had stooped down nnd dis covered the disappearance of tho mis guided slipper, and ho marveled in deep anxiety how he was going to explain such a state of ulTairs. His one shod foot provoked general hilarity, then delighted npplauso nnd cries of "It's a trick! It's Bomo trick!" Tho petted davlitigof the ladies smiled a Weak smile and stammered: "Yes, ladies, it is n trick." Applause, accompanied by n general clapping of hands, greeted this an nouncement, while Lntournello kept say ing to himself: "Oh. yes, it's a great trick, but somo ono has played it on me, and I don't iind it so very funny. If 1 only knew who it was" then, struck with an idea: "Heav ens! If it could bo tho general his sin gular performance just now and I saw him stoop down if it was really ho, it would be a pretty uncomfortable jokoon mo. How enn I make sure?' As ho escorted tho lady through tho room ho tried to got near tho general. Ho managed to do so, and with the back of his hand ho cautiously knocked against tho pockot of the goneral's coat which he suspected contained the slip per. There was nothing there! Ho tried to sound tho other pocket, but a slight move on tho general's part carried him out of reach. To touch it, it was neces sary to pass around on the sido whero it was. "Where in tho world are you taking me?" demanded tho lady on his arm. "Why or to tho head of the room," and ns he wns now on tho right side of the genernl lie wanted to try tho other pocket. Hero was a new obstaclo that ho had not foreseen. Tho fact that tho lady had tho arm nearest tho general made any attempt at exploration impos siblo. Ho offered the other on the pre text of an old wound which was paining him and wns able nt Inst to repeat his former tactics. This time ho was satis fied. "It's thoro!" ho murmured, and he did not onjoy tho reflection that the hus band of his adored one had discovered his maneuvers under tho tablo. "Well, I'm in a pretty mess," ho con cluded. Everybody had crowded into tho room, there was an expectant hush, and all were on tiptoe for the promised trick. There was no way to retreat. "Here goes," said the imprudent lover. "I must take the plunge, coino what may." And he plunged. "Ladies," he said, "I have lost my slip per. I have not got it concealed about my person; my pockets are empty" ha turned them insido out "nor is it in my coat" he held itopen "nor in my waist coat" he unbuttoned it "nor in my slooves" and he turned them up to his elbows. "You see, ladies, I have noth ing in my hands or uiy jiockets. . I must find out, then, where the lost article is. Nothing is more simple. I have only to make a slight cabalistio calculation.'' With this he covered bin fuco with his hands and assumed an attitude of pro found cogitation. Then, without re moving his hands, ho counted: "One, two, three, four, five. My slipper," he cried, "is in the left pockot of the sixth person to my right." This person wag the general. "Not bod!" the latter exclaimed uu der his breath, and in obedience to the universal cries of "Search yourself, search yourself, general," he drew the slipper from the pockot indicated. A storm of applause was evokod by the brilliant success of the trick. Then, aft er much whispering, several voices cried, "Oh, the general is his confeder ate." "Yes, yes," came a chorus of voices; "he's a confederate," The conjurer protested, "Do it again, then!" some one demand ed, and everybodvjook tip tho cry : "Yes, yes! Do it ngnin!" "Oh," said a lady, "the general has just been whispering toM. Lntournello." And tho cry went up oi tiui hi lra a confederate. Tho general nfflrnvd that ho wns in no sense furthering the eonjm-er's devices. "But you were just now whispering with him," insisted tho witnesses of the conference. "Tho exact truth Is this, Indies: Yon nsked the conjurer to repent his per formance. I just this moment told him thnt it was ono of those tricks thnt should not be tried a second time. Did I not, sirr said the general significantly. "Precisely, genernl, nnd I shall fol low your advice," replied Lntonmelle. "It shall not be repented." And it never was. Translated For Ar gonaut From the French of Jules Moi nanx by L. B. Vnssault. Four Sad Summer Deaths. Four of my friends during the terrible heat of last July died in homes where every convenience was possible, but from which women were absent. With their families scattered in the country these men wore forced to remain in the city. In each case the thousand and one little attentions thnt a man's home receives at the hands of woman were neglected by the servants. Meals were irregularly served and more irregularly eaten ; rooms were ventilated Just ns the servants re membered or forgot them. That terri ble week of incessant heat, which we nil remember, enme nnd exhausted these men. Dysentery nnd kindred summer ills nre not far behind a mnn when ho is run down by sleepless nights, harassed by business, living in n cheerless, disman tled, nncarcd for home under torrid days and stilling nights. In ono instance it was a young man in the flush of suc cess, who camo homo ono evening only to dio during tho night, too weak even to ring for nssistanco. In another case a man of millions, with bis family nwny nt ono of tho fnshionablo resorts, suc cumbed to the heat and wns found dead the following afternoon. In the other two cases the blow came not so sudden ly, but yet within a week. And in each instance tho families knew not that tho mainspring of their support were ill un til they were dead. Perhaps the pres ence of mother, wifo or daughter might not havo staid tho hand of death, but who will deny tho efficiency of womanly care in sickness? E. W. Bok in Ladies' Homo Journal. rrcillutlng Ktirthqiinkt'ft. Professor Falb of Vienna has attained lotno notoriety from tho fact that ho predicted tho coming of both series of eart hi pinko shocks from which the island of Zante hns recently suffered. Earthquakoprognosticntionsliavebeen recorded as coming truo in not a few in stances, but there is reason to lielieve thnt tho fulfillment of tho prophecies was purely accidental. Seismologists aro not likely to, givo Professor Falb much credit for prescience. They will say ho merely happened to foretell what wns coming. We mny, to be sure, predict enrth qunkos in somo regions with a good deal oi confidence that tho prognostication will como truo. If wo predict, for in stance, that an earthquako or earth tremors will bo felt in Japan tomorrow, the chances aro thnt the prediction will como true, for ono or two earth move ments on an average are felt in that country every day, but we cannot tell exactly where they will occur or what degreo of violence they will exhibit. The greatest boon which could bo con ferred upon regions that aro subject to violent earthquake shocks would bo tho discovery of somo means of foretelling tho coming of theso terrible calamities. For years seismologists have given their most earnest attention to this problem, but it cannot be said that they have mndo much progress. Professor John Miluo says that he and his assistants have spent years in observing the earth quake phenomona of Japan, but they have never yet succeeded in foretelling the coming of an earthquako. Now York Sun. The UnmnilnK of Telegraph Wires. Yon have nil heard tho humming and singing of telegrnph and telephone wires as you passed the poles along the streets. No doubt you have concluded that it is caused by the action of the wind on the wires and given it no further thought. But it is not true that the singing is caused by the wind, and if you are at all observing you will notice that often the humming sound is to be henrd cold win ter mornings when thosmoko from chim neys goes straight up until it is lost in the clouds, and when the frost on tho wires is as fuzzy and thick as a roll of chenille fringe. The wind has nothing to do with the sound, and according to an Austrian scientist the vibrations are due to tho changes of atmosphorio tomperaturo and especially through tho notion of cold, as a lowering of tomperaturo in duces a shortening of the wires extend ing over tho whole of the conductor. A considerable amount of friction is pro duced on the supporting bolls, thus in ducing sounds both in the wires and the poles. , When this bumming has been going on, birds have mistaken the sound for in eocts inside tho poles and have boon eon to peck with their bills on the out side as they do upon the apple and other trees.

Whilo a largo pino log wns being work ed up nt tho Brown & Hall sawmill, Acton, Ontario, a wonderful discovery was made. After the outsido "slab" had been cut oft a lnrgo toad wns seen to poke his head nut of a holo in which bo was imbedded, and whero ho had barely csenped being cut in two by tho saw. How tho creature ever got there Is a mystery, as ho was jierfectly incased in tho wood with no possiblo means of in gress or egress. As tho log was tho fourth or fifth up from the butt of tho tree his inisition must have been at least 50 or 00 eet up from tho ground. There Is but ono way of nccotiiitiiig for tho fact that ho was found in the l it nation mentioned.

A writer in "La Vio Contomporaino'' has discovered that an old bos in tho lum ber room of tho Louvre musouin instead of containing archives, as was supposed by many, is full of the relics of royal por souuges jawbones, shouldor blados, shanks, ribs and vertebra). The writor states that thoro are among thorn the scapula of Huguos Cupet, tho thighbone of Charles V, the shiubonos of Charles VI and Francis I, the vortobrnj of Charles VII and Charles IX, the ribs of Philippe lo Bui and Louis XII and the lower jaw bone of Catherine do Medlois, The authenticity-of these relics is, he says, proved by papers also found in the box.- Iteautlfiil Lectures on Joumnllnm. Lectures on Journalism nre becoming abundant. It goes without saying that 19 times ont of 80 they nre by those who know nothing of their subject experi mentally, but know nil about it theoret ically. And, oh, how beautifully they do talk! But if they'll only take a little back at it in a practical day in and day out sort of way they'll find that journal ism means something else than spider web rainbows and pansy beds, or we'll lose onr guess. We havo never known a enso where actual experience with book canvassers, committees who want a lot of free ad vertising In the editorial columns "for tho good of the cause, you know," etc., ever failed to leave its impress of stern logic. Those who presume on the duties and responsibilities of journalism and all that sort of pretty talk would see some things at least a little differently if they'd only get down from their high horse nnd take a hand nt jonrnalism themselves. Milford (N. Y.) Journal. A Great Flnh. , Thero was landed recently nt Strotn ness, Orkney, a halibut of extraordinary dimensions, measuring 0 feet 10 inches in length nnd weighing no less thnn 215 pounds. The fish wns discovered by two lads who were engaged in hauling lob ster creels nt the back of tho Uolms, a distance of about 1 miles from Strom ncss pier. It wns observed on tho snnd nppnrently nslocp, nnd ns they had no appliances with them with which to at tempt a enpturo they marked tho spot nnd returned homo to acquaint their father. Armed with a kind of harpoon, to which a lino was attached, they went back to tho placo and found the hugo fish had not moved. Carefully watch ing an opportunity, tho father succeed ed in planting tho harpoon in the back of tho halibut. Tho weapon entcrod tho spine nnd rendered tho fish powerless, but on nccouut of it slzo and weight it wns only nfter considerable difficulty thnt it wns got on board. It proved a splendid specimen of tho hulibut and wns in a first rate condition. In its stomach was found a vnriety of small fish, which weighed upward of sis pounds. It wns nt once carefully packed nnd dispatched by steamer and rail to tho London mnrkot. London Field. F.mpcror Wllllutn's Defeat. The defeat of tho Germnn army bill, from whatever point of view it is re garded, is a very serious affair. In the first placo it increases, only a little, per haps, but still increases, tho probability of war. Tho emperor, rebuffed nt homo, cannot ncccpt any kind of rebuff abroad nnd will bo far more sensitivo thnn be fore nbout slight incidents nnd moro in clined to beliovo that France or Russia is taking advantage of his situation. Moreover, Frenchmen will think that tho internal struggle will weaken Ger many, as it would weaken Franco, and the hopo of finding a moment to fight Germany when sho is wenk is exceeding ly keen. Too much must not be mado of this danger, because the rulors of France ore much better informed than her journalists and can see that a decla ration of war would at once reunite the German pcoplo, but still it exists and must bo recorded. In tho second place, it is probable thnt tho rejection of tho bill does leave Germany weaker than sho should bo. London Spectator. English Sporting Terms. - j We reprint the following from an Eng lish paper as a curio in sporting litora turo: "We lenrn with great pleasure that Lady Hilda McNeill, young Lord Strad broko's sister, who since her marriage to a nephew of Sir John McNeill has boen living nt Rothloy Grango, near Loughborough, Is rapidly recovering from tho nasty full sho lately expen enced in tho hunting field.

Edwin Booth's physical disability is generally ascribed to excessive indul gence in tobacco. The cigars which tho famous tragedian smokes are marvels of -strength, yet it has boen smoko, smoke, smoke from morning till late at night for many years. When he was playing, Mr. Booth used to havo his valot stand at night at one of the entrances to tho stago holdiug a cigar and a light, so that as soon as tho scene was ended Mr. Booth would have his fuvorito weed at hand. Exchange Davenport Against Bernhardt. Miss Fanny Davenport dosiros to de bar Bernhardt from putting on Sardou's latest play in this country, becnuso she produces plays "in an incompetent way." And the vexatious part of it is that it will take two years or more to get it through the Gnllio head that this is an American joke. It is annoying to bo obliged to protest to Parisians that we bolieve that in somo ways the Bern hardt can give tho Davenport points. New York World. To He Seen at Chieauu.
