A PARISIAN ADVENTURE.
Thu Reino assize court had its at
tention devoted to tt charactotisti
cnlly Parisian ml venture, in which
love, jealousy, and the revolver once
more played a prominent part. In
the month of August a Monsieur
Keller, a niariied man ot indepen
dent means, returned one night to
his home in the '1 ernes wounded
and covered with blood. His wife,
much alarmed, asked him what had
occurred, and he replied that he had
'been attacked by some of the vaga
bonds who infest the outskirts of tho
town. M. Neller gave a similar ex
planation to his doctor, but tho
latter was not so credulous as the
hilly had been, and m his exclaiui
intr that the story was impossible.
the victim of this mishap elected to
make a clean breast ot it. lie con
fessed that ho had been tired on by
his misttess, a young woman named
Marie Arnoultwlio lived in a house
in Hie neighborhood of the Houlc
vaid des Gapiioines, and who was of
a very jealous disposition. The
doctor at once communicated with
the police. The iiascible damsel
was anested, and a full inquiry was
instituted into the matter. It was
asuct taiucd that on the evening m
question M. Nellcr was taking a
light supper in Marie Ani
onics bcdi oom, and was stoop
ing to put a bottle on the
floor, as the small table was cram
med with eatables, when his mis
tress, placing the muzzle of her re
volver behind his light ear, fired at
him. "While the man, burly dazed,
rose to his feet to lice, the young
woman discharged three more shots
at him, and she tired for the fifth
time as he was opening the door of
the apartment in order to make his
exit. This bullet hit him in the
lumber region. For some time M.
Xclicr was laid up, but although the
bullets have never been extracted he
lias long been able to get about.
Marie Arnoult, on being asked
whether M. Keller had ever pro
mised to wed her, replied that he
had pledged himself to live with her
altogether as soon as his daughter
was married. She had not bought
the revolver for the purpose of
killing her lover, but because the
country house in which her relatives
lived was threatened by thieves.
The fact was that she had yielded
to a sudden impulse of jealousy.
She was convinced that M. Nellcr
was carrying on with other women,
and tliat'he had declined to stay that
night with her because he had
another rendezvous. The thought
quite turned her head, and she did
not know what she was doing. 'The
woman was condemed to one year's
imprisonment. rilomc Kews.
EXTRAORDINARY ROMANCE OF THE
Wc are passing through the stages
of a strange loniance of the Church.
Recently, says a London coriespon
dent, an elderly lady, very well
dressed, lose from the congregation
of a London church, and ascending
the pulpit stair, with a cry of en
dearment, threw her arms round the
neck of the astonished pastor, ex
claiming, "Oh, my darling, I havo
found at last." The clergyman's
wife and family were spectators of
this extraordinary episode, which
made, as may be supposed, consi
derable commotion. The lady was
known to be a person of wealth, and
a resident in the neighborhood. The
incident only proved to be a sequel
to our story. Several years ago a
popular curate, on leaving the
chinch which the lady attended,
wits presented by her with a cheque
for a thousand pounds. Some lime
afterwards he discovered that ho
had kindled in his patron's bnsnm a
tender passion, but which ho found
it impossible to reciprocate. The
Jady, from a state of morbid despair,
passed into active insanity. She
imagines that jn every clergyman is
concealed her oyer? and hence the
extraordinary fraud which Jius led to
her removal to a placu of safety,
HOW ARAGO MEASURED THE POWER OF
The experiments which were en
tered upon for tlio purpono of meas
uring the force of tlio vapor of water
were very important and very
dungctoiis; important, because tho
safo working of steam engines was
dependent upon correct inctisurp
inonts of the foice, and becau'so all
tho properties of heat had to be
passed in review; and iangerous,
because they "Imposed tho tusk nt
confionting the unknown caprices of
a formidable foice. Thoro weiobut
two men to accept it and conduct It
to success: Arago, who never
shrank from a duty; and Dnlong,
already maimed by an explosion,
whoso previous studies had admir
ably prepared him for tho new
work." A rudo manometer was ex
temporized, and a boiler, far less
stanch than the steam boilers of to
day, was set up, in which water was
heated till the pressure was twenty
seven atmospheres. "Thoy notild
not go further. At this extreme
point, it leaked at all tho joints, and
tho steam escaped through tho fis
sures with a hissing that was of bad
omen. Hut tho observers, though
aware of tho danger, silent and re
signed, finished without accident
thu Jiicas urcincuts which they had
t naaBwyaawnw narrya
begun." Telling M. Jamln the
story, which was written out as
above from his dictation, Arago
said : "Only one being of our com
pany preserved his serenity nnd
slept quietly ; it was Dulong's dog ;
they called him Omieron." Popu

Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
Living Six Years Witliout
Going- to Bed.
Mil. Editoji: While spending a few
days at tlio pleasant sc.isido town of
Aberystwith, Cardigniishiie, Wales, I
heard related what seemed to me either
a fabulous Qtoiy or a mntvelloos cure.
The story was that a poor sufferer who
had not been able to lie down in bcjl for
si long ycais, given up to die by nil the
Doctois, had been speudjly euicd by
bonie Patent Mcdlcitiu. It was i elated
with the moid implicit confidence from
the circumstance, as was bald, that the
Vicar of lilaniystyd ui3 lamilitu with
tlio facts, and could vouch for the truth
of the repoit.
Having a little curiosity to know how
such stories grow in Hurdling, I took
the liberty while at the village of Llan.
ryttyd to call upon the Vicar, the Rev.
T. Evutitf, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though n toinl stran.
gcr to him, both he ami his wilo must
graciously lutcit.iintd me in a half
houi'sconveisalion, principally touching
the cao of Mr. Pugh, in which they
seemed to take a deep and sympathetic
luteiest, having been familiar with his
sullcrings, and now rejoiced in what
seemed to them a most remarkable cine.
He strongly vouched Mr, Wm. Pugh's
character as a lcspectablc f aimer and
worthy of credit. I left tho venerable
Vicar with a livelier sense of the lumpy
relation of a. pastor and people, feeling
uiui iie was one who tuny sympaiiuseil
with all who are afilicted in mind, body,
On my return to Abcrjstwlth, I was
impressed with a des-irc lo see Air. PueliJ
whoso reputation stood so lilgli. Ills
faun is called Panconi-Mawr, signifying
'uboyo the dingle," situated near the
cumniit of a smooth lound hill, over
looking it beautiful valley In which is
situated tho lovely ivyinantled Church
of Llauddeiiiol, I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, lather slight, wlthu plcnsiintand
intelligent face. I told him I had heard
ot hU great nlllietion and of his remark,
able and almost miraculous relief, and
that I had come to learn fiom his own
lips, what there was of truth In the ie.
Mr. Pugh icmarked that his neigh.
bQis had taken u kindly mid nynip
atlictiu interest in ills case for many
years, mil of late their interest had been
gie.itiy awakened by a happy clitingo in
His condlou. Whuf you repoit ib hav.

Doctors told mo was Dyspepsia. What
food I could hold in my stomach seem

thiown up with painful retchings. This
was followed after a time with a hoarse
ness and a raw soreness of tho throat
which the Doctors called bronchitis,
and I was treated for that, but with
little success. Then came shortness of
breath and a senso of suffocation, cspe.
