I? :?7;e Bandit .
lU^ . _ ; J
Ti c Mr.rquisi? de ?eauminois had
mc.und anciently for a gouty
nnd unreasonably jealous husband,
sjic had recently laid aside her
weeds and begun a neuvaine when
,m order from the king enjoined
1-er to lodge a captain and his
squadron, who had been sent to
dear the country of an audacious
band of brigands.
The young widow submitted with
good grace. While tho dragoons
bad free accosB to tho pantry, sho
did*the honors of her table for their
chief, thc Due de MervaL Dom
Marouflot, the chaplain of the cha
teau, acted as chaperon.
Ono evening the duke was talk
ino- and drinking in the large wain
scoted room, where he was playing
chess with Dom Maroiiflot. The
marquise, who wore an exception
al] v elegant toilet, was asking her
self for the thousandth time that
week, "Do 1 really love him?" and,
i hough she reflected seriously, her
question remained unanswered.
"That (rillou is a clever bandit/'
. iwled the captain between two
'.rame?. "For two weeks wo have
scoured the country, and still he
?lip.-; through our fingers. I have
decided to search for him tomorrow
with tho whole squadron.
"Gillou is not an ordinary brig
and/' continued thc duke. "They
say bc is educated, courteous and
even gallant upon occasions."
As the marquise drew her chair
nearer to the table where the two
men were sitting tho captain began
to tease her.
"What a serious countenance,
madame 1 I fear my stories about
brigands have so frightened you
that you will not dare to venture
two steps in the park this evening."
Dom Marouflot looked at the
clock and said: "It is the hour for
your neuvaine, madame. I will
ring for the servants to escort you."
"No, no; it is needless," replied
the marquise, piqued by the duke's
sarcasm. "I shall go to the chapel
alone. I wish to prove to Captain
Merral that women are not such
cowards as he believes.*'
The old chapel was at tho* farther
end of the park. Once out of the
house the marquise began to regret
her bravado. Mme. Beauminois'
mind was filled with the stories she
had heard concerning Gillou, "the
man in the mask," as the old wo
men of the country called him.
Under her fine satin corsage her
heart beat so loudly she could al
most hear it.
At last she reached the chapel
and, entering, kneeled and said her
prayers w little more quickly than
usual. Then she rose and went to
ward the door.
Suddenly she stopped and caught
her breath. A masked man was
standing near tho holy water vessel.
As she saw that he remained mo
tionless and in a respectful atti
tude bhe took courage and ad
The man dipped his fingers in the
holy water and held them out to
her. She did not dare to refuse the
stranger's offer, and, thanks to a
ray of moonlight that filtered
through a stained glass window, she
remarked that he had a very beau
A little reassured, she made a
sign of the cross and left the chapel.
She had scarcely taken ten steps
before the unknown m?" rejoined
her, and she started at hearing, a
voice which she thought she recog
nised, although it was singularly
,rWill you allow me to offer you
my arm, madame? Some accident
might befall you alone in this great
park at Buch an hour."
He had such a courtly bearing
that the marquise felt perfectly
H As they crossed an opening
bathed in moonlight she examined
her companion more closely. TTjq
mask left the lower part of his face
uncovered. Not only did she believe
that it was not the first time ?he
bad heard this voice, butf it seemed
to her that it was the same blond
? mustache which had lightly touched
her hand each evening in a discreet
kiss. The masked man had there
fore almost the samo voice, mus
tache and figure as the duke.
He had disguised himself to
H frighten her. This discovery gs^e
cn ner a great desire to laugh, am. she
leaned upon his arm with more con
fidence. Finding the adventure a
pleasant one, sh? resolved to play
Bj ber part of the courageous woman
Sj seriously 60 long as.it should please
tae duke to remain a brigand.
Besides, what a fine occasion to
? leam under cover of jocularity the
duke's real sentiments!
*T>o you often go out alone like
this, my pretty devotee?*'
j ^Yes, M* Mask, all alone, just like
*T)o you know that Gillou and
his band are running about the

"Are yon not afraid of brig

^jThat depends upon the brig
'^yself, for example."
Are you a real brigand?*'
H .A?as? yea, fair lady," he said in a
j melancholy tone.
? '^deed !" replied th6 marquise.
U \ am sorry for you, but you do not

Tho stranger had such a grateful.
.tender and eloquent look that the"
young woman was touched. She
would never have believed that the
duke's eyes could express so much
"Would it be indiscreet, beauti
ful princess, to ask why you went to
the old chapel ?"
"I went to finish my neuvaine."
"A neuvaine 1 And for what rea
"Are you married, my queen ?"
"I have been, but"
"Ah, I understand 1 You were of
fering up vows for the end of your
'Terhaps that is it"
Without another word he began
to press a series of kisses upon the
marchioness' taper fingers.
Her hesitation increased the ene
my's boldness, and when she
thought of drawing away her hand
he had already abandoned it for a
skirmish where the kisses closed her
Suddenly she escaped from her
imprisonment and noticed that his
eyes were fixed upon the brilliant
diamond she wore upon her little
"Do you want a pledge of pardon
for your boldness ? 6he said. "Here
it is." And, putting her whole soul
into a last playful smile, she added:
"It is a talisman that will aid you
in returning to the right path, my
dear brigand. Remember that I
should prefer to see you dead rath
er than unfaithful or a felon."
At these words, lightly uttered,
tho masked man showed extraordi
nary emotion. Then, with rever
ence this time, he kissed the lady's
hand rr.d disappeared.
When bhe entered the house, she
found the duke and Dom Maroullot
at the chess table. The duke was
so absorbed that he did not even
turn Iiis head as she came into the
room. She thought that really cue

dragoons, was returning to the
chateau. He had alighted and was
taking off his pistols when the
"If s all over," he called out to
her. "I brought down Gillou with

"He kneeled down ten steps from

Then he cried out again, but I don't

The duke handed a beautiful dia

When Ruskin Talked Nonsense.
In a lecture at Oxford when he
was Slade professor Sir William
Richmond defended the fame which
the world had accorded to Michael
Angelo and Raphael. Formerly
Ruskin hod denounced Michael An
gelo, arul he was not very well
pleased with Sir William for hold
ing forth on the other side. When
Ruskin recovered from the ill health
which had caused him to give up
the Slade professorship, Sir Wil
liam retired so that he might fill it
again. Touched by this, Ruskin
asked if he might dine with his
young friend. The latter was de
lighted, and they spent a pleasant
evening. When Ruskin rose to go,
he said, "Willie, why did you make
that violent attack upon mo about
Michael Angelo?" "Mr. Ruskin,
because you talked nonsense," was
the uncompromising reply. "You
are quite right," was the parting
word of thc great hearted master,
"it was nonsense."

Astor is a lawyer who lives in

house to tlie suburban train when
the butcher on the corner opposite
the station called to him. Astor
had bought his meat from that
butcher tor twenty years. j
"Mr. Astor," asked the bubrher,
"what can I do if a dog runs into

asked the lawyer.

Next morning the bill came to
Mr. Astor's ollice. But tho butcher
had unfortunately forgotten that
his victim was a lawyer.

Dr. Alexander McKenzie in ono

Agassiz lived in Switzerland, on tho
border of a lake. He had a younger
brother, and one day tho two lads
started to cross the lake. It was
frozen, and the ice looked safe

The boys got on very well until
they came to a crack in tho ice per
haps a foot wide. Thc mother could
not call to them, although her heart
failed her as she thought, "Louis
will get over well enough, but his
little brother will try to step over
and will fall im"
As she watched she saw Louis get
down on the ice, his feet on one
side of the crack, his hands on the
other side, making a bridge of his
body, and the little brother crept
over him to the other side. .Then
Louis got up and they went on their
"Wei! Begun ls Half Done/'
Thus says the proverb. But it is
a melancholy f?et that helf the fail
ures in life are due to leaving un
finished what has been started well.
It is never wise to dissipate one's
energy by leaving a well begun task
in order to take up a fresh one, for
doing so is likely to result in a
promising piece of work being left
unfinished forever and aye and also
have a very bad effect on the mind
and character of the workor. Noth
ing really worth doing was ever
done without inconvenience, and it
is an excellent plan to train oneself
in perseverance and self sacrifice by
making a rule always if possible to
finish the work in hand before at- '
tempting anything eise? ,

ONE OF FIELD'S POEMS.
The Frame In Which lt Waa 8et end

A Louisville man thus describes
an amusing incident which occurred
in New Orleans in the spring of
1894: "I met Eugene Field on one
of Ins pilgrimages for old bottles,
pewter ware and any old tiling in
the junk line. Some friends of
mine introduced our party to Mr.
Field and Wilson Barrett and mem
bers of his company, then playing
an engagement in New Orleans.
Mr. Field's greatest delight was in
teasing Miss Maude Jeffries, a Mis
cissippi girl, then leading lady in
Mr. Barrett's company. She was
very sensitive and modest, and it
delighted Field greatly when he
could playfully embarrass her.
"One day I "found him in his room
busy on tho floor pasting large
sheets of brown paper together, lie
had written a poem to Misi*. Jeffries
in the center of a large sheet of
: this wrapping paper in his charac
\ teristic small hand-indeed, much
I smaller than usual. On tho edges
of this sheet 1 found him pasting
I others of equal size, so that the
j whole when complete made a sin
gle sheet about eight feet square.
This he carefully ?obied up to fit
an improvised envelope about thc
size of a Mardi (Iras souvenir, then
being distributed about the city.
"With the joyousness of a boy
about to play a prank ho chased
downstairs at the noon hour when
he knew Miss Jeffries was at lunch
with Mr. Barrett in the cafe of the
Grunewald. Culling a waiter, he
sent the hugo envelope in te her
table. Sho glanced at it a moment
and then gradually drew the pack
age from its envelope, while Field
and I stood watching behind thc
entrance. It ?pread all over the
table as she continued to unfold
the enormous sheet, and its rustle
attracted the attention of nearly
every one in tho room. When it
had spread itself all over Mr. Bar
rett, who meanwhile was laughing
heartily, Miss Jeffries discovered the
poem in Field's hand and. although
blushing crimson, joined in the
laughter, for she knew he was some
