t The doctor's houte has net yet received the
compliment of a description, and It it new
high Ume that the onilstlen were supplied,
for th house Is Itself an ncter In the story,
and one whose part It nearly at an end. Twe
stories In height, walls of a warm yellow,
tiles of an ancient ruddy brown diversified
with mess and lichen, it steed with one wall
te the street In the angle of the doctor'!
property. It was roomy, draughty and In
convenient The large rafters were here and
there engraven with rude marks and pat
tern's; the handrail of the stair was carved
In countrified arabesque; a stoat timber pil
lar, which did duty te support the dining
room reef, bore mysterious characters en Its
darker side, runes, according te the doctor;
nor did he fail, when he ran ever the
legendary history of the liouse and Its pos
sessors, te dwell upon the Scandinavian
scholar who had left thorn. Floers, doers
and rafters hed made a great variety of
angles; evcry room had a particular inclina
tion; the gable had tilted toward the garden,
after the manner of a leaning tower, and one
of the former proprietors had buttressed the
building from the side with a great strut of
weed, Hke the derrick of a crane. Alto
gether, it had many marks of ruin; it was a
liouse for the rats te desert; and nothing
but its cxcellent brightness the window
glass polished and shining, the paint well
scoured, the brasses radiant, the very prep
all wreathed about with climbing dowers

ing veteran, sitting, crutch and all, In the
sunny corner of a garden, marked it as a
house for comfertablo people te Inhabit In
peer or Idle management It would seen have
hurried into the blackguard stages of decay.
As it was, tin whele family loved It, and the
doctor was never better Inspired than when
he narrated Its Imaginary story and drew
the character of its successive masters, from
the Hebrew merchant who had re-edified its
walls after the sack of the town, and past the
mysterious engraver of the runes, down te
the long headed, dirty handed beer from
whom he had himself acquired it at a ruinous
expense As for any alarm about its security,
the idea had never presented itself. What
had steed for centuries might well endure a
Indeed, In this particular winter, after
the finding nnd losing of the treasure, the
Desprezes had an anxiety of a very different
order, and one which lay nearer their hearts.
Jean-Marie was plainly net himself. He had
fits of hectic activity, when he made unusual
exertions te please, spoke mere and faster,
and redoubled his attention te his lessens.
But these wens interrupted by spells of
melancholia and breeding silence, when the
boy was little better than unbearable.
"Silence," the doctor moralized "you see,
Anestasie, w hat comes of 6ileuce. Had the
boy properly unbosemed himself, the little
disappointment nbeut the trcasure, the little
annoyance nbeut Cesiniir's incivility, would
long age have been forgotten. As it is, they
prey upon him like a dlsease. He loses flesh,
his appctite is variable, and, en the wholes
impaired. I keep liliu en the strictest regi
men, I exhibit the most powerful tonics;
both in vain."
"Don't you think you drug him tes muchP
nsked madamc, w ith nn irrepressible shudder.
"Drugf cried the doctor; "I drug! Ana
ttasle, you nre mad I"
Time went en, and tlie boy's health still
slowly declined. The doctor blamed the
w wither, w hlch was cold and boisterous. He
called In his confrcre from Boutren, took a
fancy for him, magnified his capacity, and
was pretty seen under treatment himself It
scarcely appeared for what complaint. He
and Jcan-llarie had each te taku medicine at
different periods of the day. The doctor
used te ha In wait for the exact moment,
watch in hand. "Thcreis nothing like regu
larity," he would say, fill out tha doses, and
dilate en the virtues of tbe draught; mid If
the boy seemed nene the better, tlie doctor
was net at all the werse.
Gunpowder day the boy w as particularly
low. It was scowling, squally weather.
Huge broken companies of clouds sailed
swiftly overhead; laking gleams of sunlight
swept tha village, and were followed by In
tervals of darkness nnd white, Hying rain.
At times the wind lifted up its volce and bel
lowed. The trees were oil scourging them
selves along the meadow-3, the last leaves fly
ing like dust. The doctor, between the boy
and the weather, was In his element; he had
a theory te prove. He snt with his watch
out and a barometer in front of him, waiting
for the squalls nnd noting their effect upon
the human pulse. 'Ter the true philosopher,"
he remarked delightedly, "every fact in na
ture Is a toy." A letter carae te him, but as
Its arrival coincided with tha approach of
another gust he merely crammed It into his
pocket, gave the time te Jean-Marie, and the
next moment they were both counting their
pulses as if for a wager.
At nightfall the wind rose Inte ft tempest.
It besieged the hamlet, apparently from
every side,as if with battcriesef cannon; the
houses shook and groaned; live coals were
blown upon the fleer. The uproar and terror
of the night kept peeple long awake, sitting
with pallid faces giving ear.
1 It was 13 before the Desprez family retired.
By 1 .30, when the storm was already some
what past IU height, the doctor was awak
ened from a troubled slumber, and sat up. A
noise still rang in his ears, but whether of
this world or the w erld of dreams he was net
certain. Anether clap of wind followed. It
was accompanied by a sickening movement
of the whele house, and in the subsequent
lull Desprez could hear the tiles pouring like
a cataract Inte the left above his head. He
plucked Anastasle bivlily out of bed.
"Runl" he cried, thrujtlng some wearing
apparel Inte her hands; "the house Is falling I

down stairs and into the garden, with the
girl tumbling behind him, still net half
The fugitives rendezvoused In the arbor
by some common Instinct. Then came a bull'
oye flash of struggling moonshine, which
disclosed their four figures standing huddled
from the wind In a raffle of flying drapery,
and net without a considerable need for
mere. At the humiliating spectacle
Anestasie clutched ner night dress desperately
about her and burst loudly into tears. The
doctor flew te console her; but she elbowed
him away. She inspected ever) body of
being the general public, and thought the
darkness was alive with eyes.
Anether gleam and another violent gust
arrived together; the house was seen te rock
en its foundation, and, just as Jthe light was
once mere eclipsed, a crash which triumphed
ever the shouting of the wind announced its
fall, and for a moment the whele garden was
alive with skipping tiles and brickbats. One
such missile grazed tha doctor's ear; an
other descended en the bare feet of Aline,
who instantly made night hideous with her
By this time the hamlet was alarmed,
lights flashed from the windows, halls
reached the party, and the doctor answered,
nobly contending against Aline and the
tempest But this prospect of help only
awakened Anestasie te e mere active stage
"Henri, people will be coming," she
screamed in her husband's ear.
"I trust se," be replied.
"They cannot. 1 would rather die," she
"My dear," said the doctor reprovingly,
"you are excited. I gave you some clothes,

"Ob, I don't knew I must have thrown

Desprez groped about In the darkness,
"Admirablel" he remarked; "my gray vel-

as seen as she had them In her hands her

By this time rescue was at band. It bad
been found impracticable te enter by the
street, f er.the (ate was blocked with masonry,
and the nodding ruin still threatened further
avalanches. But between the doctor's gar
den and the one en the right hand there was
that very picturesque contrivance a com
mon well; the deer en the Desprez' side had
chanced te be unbelted; and new, through
the arched aperture, a man's bearded face
and an arm supporting a lantern were intro
duced into the world of windy darkness,
where Anastasle concealed her woes. The
light struck here and there among the
tossing apple boughs, it glinted en the grass;
but the lantern and the glowing f ace became
the center of the world. Anastasle crouched
back, from the intrusion.
"This way l" shouted tha man. "Are you

said the husband.
t, "I cannot," she replied.
"Are we all te die of exposure, madamel"
thundered Dr. Desprez.
. "Yeu can gei" the cried. "Oh, go, go

Next moment the doctor had whirled her
te the well. The man wa there and the lan
tern; Anastasle closed her eyes and appeared
te herself te be about te die. Hew she was
transported through the arch she knew net;
but once en the ether side she was received
by the neighbor's wife, and enveloped in a
Beds were made ready for the two women,
clothes of very various sizes for the doctor
and Jcan-Marle; and for the remainder of
the night, while madame dozed in and out en
the borderland of hysterics, her husband sat
beside the flre and held forth te the admiring
neighbors. He showed them, at length, the
causes of the accident; for years, he ex
plained, the fall had been impending; ene
sign had followed another, the joints had
opened, the plaster had crackled, the old
walls bowed Inward; last, net three weeks
age, the cellar deer had begun te work with

mulled wine. "That reminds me of my peer

say cheerful. Cau your priest de morel"
By the first glunpse of the day the party
sallied forth from the flreslde into the street.
The wind had fallen, but still charioted a
world of troubled clouds; the air bit Ilka
frost; and the party, as they steed about the
ruins in the rainy twilight of the morning,
beat upon their breasts and blew Inte their
hands for warmth. The house had entirely
fallen, the walls outward, the reef In; It was
n mere heap of rubbish, with here and there
n forlorn epear of breken rafter. A sentinel
was placed ever the ruins te protect the
property, and the party adjourned te Ten Ten
talllen's te break their fast at the doctor's
expense. The bettle circulated somewhat
freely; and before they left the table it had
begun te snow.
Fer three days the snow ccntlnued te fall,
and the ruins, ceverul with tarpaulin and
watched by sentries, weraVleft, undisturbed.
The Desprez' meanwhile had taken up their
abode at Tentalllen's. Madame spent her
time In the kitchen, concocting little delica
cies, with the admiring aid of Mme. Tentail Tentail
len, or Bitting by tha fire in thoughtful ab
straction. The fall of the heuse affected her
wonderfully little; that blew had been par
ried by another; and in her mind she was
continually fighting ever again the battle of
the trousers. Had she done right I Had she
dene wrong! And new she would applaud
her determination; and anon, with a horrid
flush of unavailing ponltence, she would re
gret tha trousers. Ne juncture in her Ufa
had se much exercised her judgment. In
the meantime the doctor had become vastly
pleased with the situation. Twe of the sum
mer boarders still lingered behind the rest,
prisoners for lack of a remittance; they were
both English, but one of them spoke French
pretty fluently, and was, besides, a humor
ous, agile minded fellow, with whom the doc
tor could reason by the hour, secure of com
prehension. Many were the glasses they
emnticd. many the tonics thev diwmuuil.
