Startled Queen Miirjruerite.
A blrauge incident occurred during the re
cent festivities at Rome in commemoration
of its capture by gen. Cadorna tweuty-fivo
years ago, and winch has round no mention
In the newspapers, yet which considerably
alarmed the Queen, It seems that while
driving back to the Qulrinal palace after
tlie Inauguration of the Cavour monument
tlie carriage in which King Humbert and
Queen Margucntewcrescated wassuddenly
stopiwd by an infantry captain, who rushed
toward the Queen with both hands in the
As the King, fearing an attack upon his
consort, arose to place liimsclf before her,
the man exclaimed "Mercy, your majesty,
mercy! You who are the first woman of
Italy. For the lovo of God, abolish vivi
section, which is the curse of the country.
Have mercy upon the miserable beasts!"
The King nude some angry exclamation
about the respect due by tlie officer to the
uniform lie wore and permitted him to bo
led away under arrest by tlie cuirassiers es
corting the carnage.
Bubseeiuenl investigation showed the man
to be a Marquis ill Chlara, subject to fits of
temporary insanity since a sunstroke re
ceived in Africa. The Queen, remember
ing the attempt to assassinate tier hus
band at Naples, when her7 dress was
drenched with his blood and that of tho
prime minister, was so alarmed by what
she feared was going to be a repetition ot
th event that she was unable to take any
further part in the festivities, cither on
that day or the one foHowliur.
I dou't know exactly why Jack called ma
"governor," but I suppose it was becauso r
was some years older than be was and b
cause. when he was a wee toddler, I had
made him -kites and show ed Iiiiu ho w to spin
tops, and perhaps because I used to help hlni
out ot scraies. either with his teacher or
some playmate too large for tdm lo "lick."
At all events, I got the name and It has
stuck to me. What surprised me most, how
ever, was to licarlt a tew wecksago, when
I supposed Jack was thousands of miles
away. I was strolling leisurely about for
ot my childhood. How things had changed!
Yonder wheie the little frame church had
been was .a stately stone edifice; over ths
old golt links bad been built long rows ot
stores and houses, but there yes, it must
be there was a house thnt had not beea
"Governor," said a voice behind me,
"isn't that the house where Alice lived?"
I never should Save known the speaker
bad it not been for tse epithet; it was Jack,
careworn and gray and looking 35 instead
"Jack, old boy, what brings you here?
I thought yun were Jn America."
"I have been in New Orleans for a good
many years; Helen used to like tbe climate.
But tbe company's agent Sere has left and
I must needs come and take care of tbs
business until another man Is appointed.
Besides, tie president knew that I ones
lived here, and thought it would be bom
a change from my sarronndings and a
pleasure to see the old place. But isn't
that Alice's old aome?" '
"Yes," said I, "I am Quite sure of it; but
you ought to know liest; didn't she used
to be a sweetheart of yours?"
"Oh, don't speak of tbatt Y,ia pain met

heartfelt sympathies. But I didn't know
you bad ever married. However, we bavs
kept such a poor track of each other that I "
don't wonder at my ignorance- But cant

I'm your "governor."'
"Well, 'governor, "said he, with a faint

and as the child is In good hands (my

his idol. As yoa said. Alice w as my sweet
heart. She said so herself, dear girl, bat
her brother Tom there was the dif ficalty.
I called 011 Alice very often and h&d asked
her td be my wife, though I was but 19.
She said, 'Yes,' but Tom wouldn't hear ot
t. I tried to bring him around by nil man
ners of means, but be was resolute. H
had never liked me, and he never hesitated
to tell me so; In fact, he took great pleasure
in rating me before me, as well as behind
"One night I think It was halloweeen a
crowd of young fellows got out on a lark
and in their sport took Tom's small donkey
out of tbe shed, and pushing It upon ths
roof of, a wagon house, which, sloped al
most to tbe ground, tied It' there.
Tom thought I vs as the prime mover in tho
trick, though I knew nothing ot It, and, ac
cordingly, tho next night, when I called,
promptly showed me the door, with the In
junction never to set foot in It again.
"I saw Alice at times, but she seemed
somewhat changed So, after I had tried
all in my power to straighten things, I got
tngry about it, and when I was offered a
position in Canada I was glad to leave. My
marriage wasnotspitevvork. I loved AUcs
and always shall, but I knew I could b
happy with Helen, and, then, she said ah
Just then we passed the house.' It was
the same old place we both remembered.
The same trees and bushes spread their
branches about the lawn: in one corner ot
the yard stood a large, old-fashioned bucket
pump, and on one of tbe boards of tbe sids
fence wasthcrude, weather-stained carving:
Jack turned red. then white, as he looked,
at tbe names, and then glanced at me.
"Do you suppose she lives there now?"
"I'm sure I don't know," I replied; "but
let's ask some one."
Scverai persons passed, but all Seemed in
a hurry, so we went into a store across ths
street and inquired. Yes, Tom Neal and
his sister lived there. Did we know them?
Indeed! No, bis sister was not married;
some fellow off in America jilted her, so
"Well, Jack," said I, after we came ont,
"I"ra not a matchmaker, but if, as you
say, you've- always had a warm affection
for Alice, why don't you begin again?
It isn't too late."
Jack blushed to the roots of his hair and
said he should never go there after having
been showu the door.
Jack and I lived together at the same
hotel, and daily I spoke to him of going to
call as a friend. At last, tbe day before
he was to return to New Orleans, I got him
down near Neal's home. We passed it six
or eight times, and I began to feel foolish
at promenading up and down tbe street.
Once we stopped in front of the gate and
be put forth his band to open It, bat drew
back like a young schoolboy. Then I told
him that 1 had had enough of such fooling
and that when we approached again we
would have to go in. We came up, Iopened
the gate and pushed him forward up tho
'Heavens, 'governor,' " he gasped, "ring
tho bell for me!"
Tom Neal came to the door and grectcduj
"Jack," said he, "I owe you aD apology
have owed jou one for years. I found ont
who did that work with the donkey and I'm
sorry I ever treated you as I did."
We began to chat of old ttmes.andshortly
Alice came down stairs. She was the same
girl wo had known, only matured. I felt
sure that she had seen us before we entered,
for she was dressed in her loveliest. She
met Jack not quite like a sweetheart, but
It did me good to tell them of Jack's dlffl
dence.ind what a hard time I had to get him
to come. They were a little displeased that
he did not come before, and when we said
Sailing! WliatI Are you going back?"
"Yes," returned Jack, demurely, "1 start
to-morrow. . .
Alice hummed to hcrtfelt a moment, tbea
going to him and taking bis bands In hex
"Well, I don't purpose that yon shall go
without me. I have loved yoa, and yoa
me; yon once asked mc to be your wife, but
we were separated. I know yoa ar too
bashful to ask me again, so I ask you to t
