Mazie Gza??t's Story.
I shall always remember how grat
ified I was to learn that my general
appearance and my excellent recom
mendations had so greatly pleased
the young Baroness d'Hautevilie as
to have made my engagemeut in her
service a matter of certainty. The
day ou which I had called upon the
lady in answer to her adverti>ement
for a competent femme dc chambre,
' she har! delighted me with her gen
tle soavity of manner, her luminous,
liquid black eyes, her strangely-con
trasting wealth of deep-gold hair,
and her absolutely faultless figure,
in which grace and delicacy, symme
try and fragility, were mingled, as I
have never seen them mingled, be
fore or since. On the following day
there arrived a little ncte at my lodg
ings, bearing the D'Hautevilie crest,
and perfumed with a sott delicious
The baronesskad taken my address
yesterday, because convinced that
her adve tisem.-nt wouid be answered
by no applicant for the situation more
satisfactory thau myself, Marie Gra
dot. And her conviction had proved
a true one, after seeing all the other
applicants who visited her. I was
very much flattered. . Apart from the
luck of having obtained so thorough
ly first-class a situation, I could not
but feel more than pleased by the
prospect of so charming and beauti
ful a mistress as the young baroness.
It was then early May, and ver}*
shortly after my engagement in the
baronialfamily-which consisted, by
the-by, merely of one newly-wed
ded couple-Monsieur and Madame
d'Pauteville left Paris for theil' really
superb residence, the Chateau d'Haute
vilie, in Normandy. Thither, of course
I accompanied them, being now more
charmed than ever with the sweet
manners o! my mistress, and feeling
that I had obtained a situation as per
manent as it was agreeable.
Life at the chatep.u was very indo
lently spent by husband and wife
duriug the first fornight after their
arrival. In the morning they took
a horseback-ride about the immense
chateau grounds, each mounted on
exquisite horses, and the baroness
looking a very dream of beauty in
her dark-blue ridiDg-habit with sil
ver buttons, and a black-plumed hat
which made even more brilliant that
marvelou.?-colored hair o? hers. The
rest of the day was passed almost in
variably in walking, driving, playing
chess, and various other occupations
of the amusing kind.
I often wondered whether the baron
ever thought'of how much happiness
he had found in the combination of a
charminv, wife on the ono hand,, and
a reliable steward on the other. Good,
rle ver little Pierre Millard seldom
Trouble:! him with business, and man
aged matters faultlessly.
In appea rance the baron was tin
exact reverse of his polite, lovely
wife. He had the florid face, and the
thick, close-curling beard, and tin
dark eyes of a thorough Frenchman
But his frame was vast and herculean
in its proportions. He looked al
most a gi:mt beside his slender deli
cate bride ; and in age, as I afterward
learned, he was madame's senior by
more than ten years.
The constant companionship of ba
ron and baroness lasted until the end
of May. After that period company
began to arrive. Room by room the
?noi-mous chateau filled itself with
gay pleasure-seeking guests, from
blooming young girls to withered old
grandmammas, from splendid gallants
to gouty old noblemen ; where only
the most solemn, unbroken quiet had
before reigned, laughter and merry
making now sounded from dawn till
For my part, I liked the change,
though it was a great surprise to me.
My mistress smiled her charming
smile, and laughed her pretty, musi
cal laugh when I told her how I had
imagined that all simmer at the cha
teau was to be as q ii et as those two
weeks had boen.
" Why, Marie," she said, "did you
suppose that the baron and I were to
pa33 a perpetual honeymooon togeth
"Hardly that, madame."
" Remember," the baroness contin
ued, " that Monsieur d'.Hauteville's
position at court is of a nature to
prevent anything like a very long se
clusion. He holds so important a
place under government, that to en
tertain is an absbltr?a necessity."
We were together in the baroness's
boudoir as the?e words '.vere spoken.
For the first time si me my knowl
edge pf. the ladv- oC?-ix, 1 caught a
trace of conscious pride in both voice
" Oh, yes, madame," I murmur
humbly enough, burying a pearl-sti
'erl comb as I spoke into the sill
?ppth of that superb bair, "y(
husband is a great gentleman, a
! ?.re J great lady. It is et
n ugh to tell .that, by the deferer
th which all these other fine p<
pl? treat you."
I had e"xpocf'ed to see a repetiti
i hat same conscious pride eitl
madame's expression or else in 1
ivspouse. On the contrary, howev
uer face saddened a little, and t
voice that answered me was son

of this!" Here the baroness turn

nothing that resembled inquiry int

She was fascinated by Monsieur La

rather than any baron, or duke, o:
prince, would have been the object o
her maidenly worship.
With hundreds of women, I tole
myself, there would have been safetj

Parisian ladies and gentlemen, an(
especially those to whom the foll ie:
and flippancies of court-life are fami

lukewarm piece of immorality. Bul
with the Baron d'Hauteville I fel
co :vinced that nothing of this son
would be allowed, even if the baro
ness, pure as she now was, should fol
low the example of so many of he:
countrywomen. He loved his wife
with a veritable passion, and the
fires of jealousy were already aroused
I saw that he had begun to hate
Monsieur Lavaloir. I saw, also, that
he was using great control in his ef
forts not to seem displeased with mad
ame's'behavior. He was saying to
' himself : " I will not be too hasty. I
' will give both of them a chance." I
silently praised him for his tolerance,
and trembled at the turn which affairs
One morning Monsieur Lavaloir
left the chateau, and I, who at last
had the pleasure of witnessing his
departure, breathed a mute prayer of
thankfulness. That evening, on en
tering madame's chamber for the
purpose of dressing her for dinner, I
found my mistress with her head
against the edge of the toilet-table,
sobbing and weeping bitterly.
I stood aloof for a moment, not
daring to act as consoler, guessing
only too well the cause of her grief,
indeed, I wasaboat leaving the cham
ber when she raised her tear-stained
face, and murmured, in faint, broken
" Stay, Marie.. I am yery misera
ble. You don't know why. I ajn
afraid to tell you why-even you,
my good, trustworthy Marie." '
I was kneeling at her side an in

I rushed forward, clasped her un

I could not but love her and sympath

when I had finished. " Forgive, but

"Igo'.o save Monsieur Lavaloir.
Mine is a mission of life or death,
She glided rapidly away in the di
rection of a privatu staircase at the
further end ? of the house. I stood
watching her until she had disappear
ed jjthen I turned and re-entered the
boudoir. I need not say what alarm
ing thoughts passed through my mind
as I sat there waiting for further de
velopments. I would nave gone down-'
stairs to ascertain whether the baron

mistresses'8 own words about giving
the guests to understand that she was
not well, reminded me that, as the
maid of the baroness, I must be found
in her. chamber when dinner was an
nounced ready to utter the white lie
she had ordered me to utter.
Ah! just then I. would ht.ve done
far more wicked things than that to
save my mistress from her troubles
and anxieties ! It may be very wrong
to say so ; but such were undoubtedly
my feelings at that time.
Before long a servant knocked at
the door of the boudoir.
" Madame is unwell," I said, an
swering the knock. " Please tell mon
sieur this. Say not?seriously unwell,
"Monsieur is gone out," was the
"The baroness had predicted right

"Thatis too bad," I said. "You

to take the head of the table. Men

it will strike him aa an excellent idea.
If madame is unwell and monsieur is
away, that beems no reason why the
company should not dine,'.' and I fin
ished-the words with, a little laugh.
" The butler knows that Monmeur de
Choisson is Monsieur le Baron's first
After that the servant departed,
and during-the next hour that passed
slowly away, I concluded that the
butler had taken my advice. Indeed,
from certain vague, far-away sounds
that occasionally reached me, I felt
sure that the guests were dining.
It was, perhaps, an hour and a half
since my lew words with the servant,
and I was still seated in the boudoir
when, happening to glance toward
my mistress's bedchamber, I saw what
brought a cry of astonishment to my
lips. Glass folding-doors separated
tie boudoir: from the bedchamber,
and, though these were closed, the
next room, in vhich a dim light burn
ed, was distinctly visible.
There sat my mistress, dressed just
as when she had left that evening.
Her head was leaned against the back
of the easy-chair which she occupied,
and her eyes, in a sort of calm stare,
were fixed directly upon me. Beyond
a doubt, she saw me, but had no de
sire to speak.
She looked very pale, and seemed
quite exhausted. I remember how
pity stirred my heart, and how I long
ed to pass beyond thoseglass folding
doors to where she sat. I should have
done so-should at least have spoken
-had it not been for her evident
knowledge of my presence.
" How strange," I recollect think
ing, " that she should have entered
that bedchamber, even by its hall
door, without my having heard her !"
Moments passed by, and still the
same calm stare was fixed upon my
fact. Presently I arose, and walked
toward the door of the boudoir which
led into the outer hall. If it was
madame's pleasure to tell me nothing
of what had passed, I could at least
find out below-stairs whether mon
sieur had yet returned.
This I immediately proceeded to
do. The upper hall, on the second
floor of the chateau, was a great
oaken-ceiled gallery, spacious alike
in width and length. I had reached
the first step of the main staircase
that led below, when I started back,
a faint cry on my lips.
The baron was ascending. I shall
recollect till I die the pallor of his
face, and the terrible, changed look
about his eyes. He saw me, and
sprang forward, reaching the top of
the staircase just as I quitted it. An
instant later I felt a grasp of steel
on my arm, and heard a husky voice
in my ear :
"Your turn next, traitorous wretch
that you are !"
My blood was cold with, terror, but
I had strength to cry, though quite
" Madame ! madame ! save me !"
He released my arm, and drew
backward a step or two.
" Whom are you calling ?" he
"My mistress,"I answered, burst
ing into tears. "She has just re
He sprang forward again, and again,
caught my arm, though this time not
" Tr7?o has returned?" he asked,
fixing those same wild, altered eyes
upon my face.
" The baroness. She is now in her
bedchamber, monsieur. As for that
note you found me with-" I went
But I somehow paused ; for Mon
sieur d'Hautevilie, still holding my
arm,'had passed his disengaged hand
across his forehead in so strange a
way that a terrible thought flashed
through my brain-" He js mad I"
" You say that the baroness is now
in her bedchamber?"
His tones were hoarse and low.
He pointed toward the door of the
bedchamber as he spoke.
" She was there not three minutes
ago," I said.
" Then it was her ghost /" he cried,
close in my ear, finishing the words
with a horrible laugh. " I caught
her to-night on the road to M-,
and strangled her dead. Afterward
I found him and shot him. You are
the next one, miserable-"
But by some strange miracle-I
can call it nothing else-I slipped,
just here, from the clutches of that
enraged giant. It may have been my
very weakness that saved me. Per
haps, being sure of his prey, he for
got for an instant to guard it as
closely as he might have done. Any
how, I remember that the miracle of
my escape was really accomplished,
and that I darted down-stairs, and
flew, shrieking with terror, right into
the lordly dining-room of the chateau,
where, all in a blaze of light, the
grandees and the noble ladies sat over
their fruit and wine. Then I remem
ber no more for hours and hours.
The baron's story was true, just as i
he had told it. Many people yet re
member his trial, which followed in
Paris a few months later, and which
resulted in an acquittal. There were
those who indignantly scoffed at the
idea of his acquittal, and attributed
it merely to the faet of his great
social innuence. There were others
who sympathized deeply with the
baron, aaa were rapturous over the
result of his trial. But whether
in the eyes of God innocent or guilty.
I know that the remaining few years
of the Baron d'Hautevilie's life were
years of a strange partial insanity
worse than death itself-^-an insanity
during whose pafrixysms be constant
ly was haunted by the ghosts of his
Regarding that presence in the
bedchamber of the "baroness on the
night of her murder, I have so often
thought, that the subject has now
lost much of its terror. I have never
found any one credulous enough to
believe my statement as to having
really seen the apparition, ? however.
Perhaps, now that I h?ve written out
my story and given' it to the world,
here and there I shall find an unskep
tical reader. But, judging from past
experinces, I doubt such a possibility

Scrofulous poison is one .of lite most destine
tlvc enemies of our r:u:c. Often/this unseen and
nnfelt tenant of tho organism undermines tho con
stitution, and invites tho attack of enfeebling or fa
tai disease*, without exciting n suspicion of its
presence. Again, it seems to breed infection
throughout tho body, mid then, on some favorable
occasion, rapidly develop into one or other of its
hideous forms, ciUieron the surface or among the
vitals. Iii the latter, tubercles maybe suddenly

Syphilis or renereal and Mercurial Dis

any medicine. Bot long-continued uso of this
medicine will cure the complaint. Lcucorrhaa

ITS CURE AND IT8 PREVENTIVE.
Bf J. E. BCHEHCX, kt V.
. itanj a human being bas pawed away for whose
acata, there was no other reason ?han the neglect of
known and Indisputably proven means or core.
Those near and dear to family and friends aro
Bleeping the dreamless slumber Into which, had
they calmly adopted
BK. JOSEPH ii, SCHENCK'S SOCLE
ai.J availed themselves of his wonderfully effica
cious medicines, they would not have ?dlen.
Dr. Schenek has In his own case proved that
wherever suffldent vitality remains, that vitality, i
by bis medicines and his directions for their use, la
qulckrued Into healthful vigor.
In tills statement there ls nothing presumptuous.
To the faith of the Invalid ls made no representation
that ls nota thousand timesFubstantlated by living
and visible works. The theory of the cure by Dr.
Schenck's medicines ls as simple as lt ls unfailing.
IU philosophy requires no argument. It ls self-as
The Sea-weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are the
first two weapons with which tho citadel of the
malady ls assailed. Two-thirds of tho cases of con
sumption originate In dyspepsia and a functionally
disordered liver. With this condition the bronchial
tubes "sympathize" with the stomach. They re
spond to themorblflcactlon of the liver. Hero then
comes the culminating result, and the setting In,
with all Its distressing symptoms of
The Mandrake Pills are composed of one of Na
tare's noblest gifts-the Podopl?llum Feltatum.
They possess all the blood-search lng, alterative
properties of calomel, bot, unlike calomel, they
"EE A VE NO STING BEHIND."
The work of cure ls now beginning. The vitiated
and mucous deposits in the bowels and In the ali
mentary canal are ejected. The liver, like a clock,
ls wound up. It arouses from its torpidity. The
stomach acts responsively, and the patient begins .
to feel that he is getting, at last,
_ -A SUPPLY or GOOD BLOOD.
Th? Sea-weed Tonic, in conjunction with the Pill?,
permeates and assimilates with the food. Chylifl
catlon ls now progressing without its previous tor
tures. Digestion becomes painless, and thc cdre ls
seen to be at hand. There fa no more flatulence, no
exacerbation of the stomach. An appetite sets In.
Now comes the greatest Blood Purifier ever yet
given by an Indulgent father to suffering man.
Schenck's Pulmonlc Syrup comes In to perform tts
functions and to hasten and complete the cure. It
enters at once upon its work. Nature can not be
cheated. It collects and ripens the impaired and
diseased portions of the lungs. DJ the form of
gatherings, it prepares them for expectoration, and
lo ! In a very short time thc malady ls vanquished,
the rotten throne that lt occupied is renovated and
made new, and the patient, in all the dignity of re
gamed vigor, steps forth to enjoy the manhood or
womanhood that was
GIVEN UP AS EOST.
The second thing ls, the patients must stay in'a
warm room until they get well ; lt Ls almost impos
sible to prevent taking cold when the lungs are dis
eased, but lt must be prevented or a cure can not be
effected. Fresh air and riding out, especially in tins
Bectlon of the country. In the fall and winter sea
son, are all wrong. Physicians who reepmmend
that course lose their patients, If their lungs are
badly diseased; ard yet, because they are in tho
house they must not sit down quiet; they must walk
about the room as much and as fast as the strength
will bear, to get up a good circulation of blood. The
patients must kevp in good spirits-be determined
to get well. This has a great deal to do with tho
appetite, and ls the great point to gain.
To despair of cure after such evidence of its pos
sibility in the worst cases, and moral certainty in
all others, is sinful. Dr. Schenck's perse J state
ment to the Faculty of his own cure was In these
" Many years ago I was in the last stages of con
sumption , confined to my bed, and at one time my
physicians thoughtthat Icould notllveaweek* then,
like a drowning man catching at straws, I heard -of
and obtained the preparations which I now offer to
the public, and they mad? a perfect cure of me. It
seemed to mo that I could feel them penetrate my
whole system. They soon ripened the matter In my
lungs, and I would spit up moro thanapintof offen
sive yellow matter every morning for a long time.
"As soon as that began to subside, my cough,
fever, pains, and night-sweats all began to leave me,
and my appetite became so great that lt was with
difficulty that I could keep from eating too much.
I soon gained my strength, and have grown in flesh
" I was weighed shortly after my recovery," added
the Doctor, " then looking Uke a mere skeleton ; my
we.0'htwas only ninety-seven pounds; my present
weight is two hundred and twenty-five (225) pounds,
and for years I have enjoyed uninterrupted health."
Dr. Scbenck bas discontinued his professional
visit? to New York and Boston. He or his son, Dr.
J. H. Scbenck, Jr., still continue to see patients at
their Office, No. 15 North Sixth Street, Philadelphia,
every Saturday from 9 A.M. to 3 Mt Those who
wish a thorough examination with the Besplro
the exact condition of the lungs, and patients can
readily learn whether they are curable or not.
The directions for taking the medicines are adapt
ed to the Intelligence even of a child. Follow these
directions, and kind Nature will do the rest, except
ing that In some cases the Mandrake Pills are to be
taken in Increased doses; the three medicines need
no other accompaniments than the ample Instruc
tions that accompany them: First create appetite.
Of returning health, hunger is the most welcome
symptom. When lt comes, as it will come, lei the
despairing at once be of good cheer. Good blood at
once follows, the cough loosens, the nlght-?weat ls
abated. In a short time both of these morbid symp^
toms are gone forever.
Dr. Schenck's medicines aro constantly kept in
tens of thousands of families. As a laxative or pur
gative, the Mandrake Pills aro a standard prepara
tion ; while the Pulmonlc Syrup, as a cure of coughs
and colds, may be regarded as a prophylacteric
against consumption In any of its forms.
Price of the Pulmonlc Syrup and Sea-weed Tonic,
?L50 a bottle, or 17.50 a half dozen. Mandrake Pills
25 cents a box. For sale by all druggists and dealers!
