THE LAST VOTARY
OF THE VENUS
Sad Result of a Friend's Device
Save a Sculptor from Madness.
By Helen Hamilton.
(Copyright, l!n,", ly the Newspaper
Kutei prise Assiwiat Inn. )
It was a cloudless moraine In May:
the sunshine streamed briidit ami i
beautiful Into the Vfftsl palace at
Florence, touihinir with molten plnry
the rosy linilis of Titian's Venus,
lighting the face nf the St. John of
Haphai'l, ami even leiulini; mmi't bins?
of the warmth and hue of life to the
lorm of the Venus (11 Mediris.
Hefore the last named stood a youns
man in an annum; oi rapiurc unni
breathless adoration, nnnarcntlv obllv -
inus to all that was parsing around
Mm. Ho vis singularly handsome, ;
but almost too delicate and i ffcminaie ,
looking ror manly beauty. In the'
glance which he lixed un the beau-
llul statue before him miuht be read
more than a sculptor' i admiration of
triumph of his art. The adoratioti
of a lover or the worship of a votary
might fitly have inspired the rapt
and passionate tenderness which
ehone In his eyes.
Suddenly a hand was laid upon his
srm, and a laughing voice exclaimed,
"Why, Fianz, man, not dreaming here
gain? I shall soon be half Inclined
to side with .lohann and Otto and be
lieve you mad Indeed."
The young man started and- pass-
Ing his hand over his eyes, turned
to the newcomer with a faint and
Rodolph Meyer, the intimate friend
and companion of Franz Waldeii. was.
as Is often seen in such cases, his ex
act ojiposite, bo'h menially and phy
sically. Placing his hand In that of
Franz tlie young man drew his friend
toward the door, saying: "Nay, you
must come," not heeding the expres
elon of reluctance from the other.
"You have managed to avoid me for
the past two months so that I am glad
to get a chance of sneaking to you. So

come, I will walk with yon to your
studio, .and see what you have been I
doing all this time." I
The lodgings were soon reached,
nd Franz admitted his friend and
himself into the small studio. It was
In the greatest disorder. Fragments
of dried clay and chips of stone
strewed the floor, while in the center
of the room stood several unfinished
busts and statues. Kodolph looked
around In amazement. "Why, good
heavens, Franz, what have you been
about these two months past?"
Without answer Fianz arose and
advanced to a green curtain .that hung
ai one end of the room and drew it
aside. As he did bo there was re
realed to his friend the beautiful
etatue it concealed. Rodolph could not
restrain an exclamation of wonder and
admiration. The figure was exquisite
ly tinted with the colors of life and
was a fine conv of the Venus de Med-'
Ids, with her rounded limbs flushed
with the hue of life and her very'
ialr tinged with paly gold, and more
than all the chisel of the artist had
lent an expression of timid and maid
enly tenderness to the features, so in
expressive in the original. She look
ed like a maiden dreaming of her first
"Beautiful! But why did you not
attempt an original work?" J
There was no answer and Rodolph
turned in wonder to his friend.:
Franz leaned against the window, his '
hand pressed over his eyes, while
tears flowed slowly through his
"Franz, my imor follow, you are 111," ,
aid Rodolph, kindly.
"Not 111," cried the other, dashing,
the drops from his eyes, "but mad!" j
"Mad!" exclaimed Rodolph, start
"Yes, mad mad indeed, for I love,
I love with all the power of my being
this statue, this Venus which remains
ever cold and soulless beneath my,
caresses. Why did ever marble take
o perfect a shape! Why this story of
Pygmalion a fable! Oh, my divine
love! Dare I never, save in my .
dreams, behold you aught but cold I
and lntenslbe to my love?" I
Rodolph was deeply alarmed.
"What if you were to find a living 1
woman, the exact ptototype of the
Venus?" he asked. i
"Then, oh, then," cried the other,
with flushed cheeks and kindling eyes,!
"I should indeed be blest." I
"Farewell, then, for a time," said'
Several days later the door of
Franz's studio was suddenly burst ,
open and Rodolph appeared on the
threshold. "Franz, Franz," he cried
"Leave your statue and look upon the!
living beauty of which you have so:
A young gi:l appeared. It ni-cdcd ,
but a glance In reveal the rare per-'
fection of her beauty. Her complex-'
Ion was creamy pale and her large
eyes (ic b!;-k and brilliant as those
of a gazelle, but it was her laiiltleshj
form, fully displayed by the tight fit-'

"Do not touch h r," be whispered.'
"She is easily frightened, (live her

for an hour or -o."
"What on earth does be mean?":
wondeted Franz in artotiishuic-tit.
Without reply, Rudolph took from,
his pocket a piece of sugar. The1
girl snatched It eaeerly and begun eat
ln It with the gestures of an animal.
Fran gazej in astonishment. Sud
denly he recalled an opinion express
ed In a work on phrenology, that "if
ever here eiste,i a woman with the
peculiarly shaped brow and head of
the Vims dl Medicls that wemari would
of necessity be an Idiot." The strange
looks ami actions of the young girl

TWO MEN BLOWN TO
ATOMS CY DYNAMITE
A dispa'eh from Chania, Uio Arriba

tragedy at that place, as follows:
While out hunting rabbits last Sun
day mar this town. Kudoro Komero
anil Jose Maitiii' . wo e near the pow
der house of the letivcr & KioC.rande
railroad, located about one-half mile
from lure, and as they had found no
game of any kind they commenced
amusing themselves by shooting at
what was supposed to be an empty
box near the powder house. The box,
however, was not empty, but contain
ed about ion Kiunds of giant powder,
which, when .struck by tho bullets
from their guns, exploded with ter
ilflc force. The explosion set off about
four tons of other explosives stored
In the powder house. Tho second ex
plosion was of such awful strength
that the force generated blow Mar
tinez into the air and tore his body
Into shreds and atoms nnd so man
gled Romero that he died from his
Injuries in great agony Monday last.
No other damage was done, except
that some window panes In the town
weie broken bv the force of the ex
plosion. It was a fortunate thing that
tho powder house was located a good
distance from here, else great dam
ace to buildings would have been the
