Little Trap
"And bo bas the smartest looking
trap you ever saw,-Madge! It's eham
i . pagno! colored and a perfect love.
Wivat do you bet I don't land him, trap

. Miss Irene Warden, a beauty (and
aware o? lt), wna writing to uer girl
ohuin concerning the bi&holor who bad
Just taken the big coloidal house with
the carriage voad und trou archway
which for several seasons now bad
?abandoned hope of usef ulucss.
. j She was writing by an open window
J where the scent of the roses carno up
from the front garden. Beyond lay
the pretty tree lined road over which
the' bachelor and his champagne col
ored trap had just flown by.'
"Although I've told you his name ls
Horace Matlock," ran on Miss War
den's pen, "I haven't told you whnt ho
-looks like. He's an old man, forty or
fifty, I should say. His nose ls rather
too big, although people call him hand
some, and ho's a blt bald, but, then, I
suppose most; men who live In big
nouses and drive smart trans have big
noses. What?" Miss Warden smiled
a little soft sin i lo Into the glass above
her dressing table and then bent over
Jber portfolio again: .
"Of course I'd-prefer dear old Tom.
He's young and stunning and sings
?college songs so beautifully, but, as

oar officials.
"In point ot fact, though," pursued
-the voluble pen, "It'll be pretty easy,
-piata sailing. I haven't a Bingle good
looking rival, up la this out of the way

-daughter, and she'* the quietest.poke

-whole outfit. That's what coa,es from
ihavlng a bookworm for a father."
Th? next week In the little village
;postof?eo a friend presented Mr. Hor
ace Matlock to Miss Irene Warden.
Apparently the meeting was by aecl
. dent, but Miss Warden felt; her 'smooth
-cheeks flush, and. her habitual com?:

"Why,, it's Professor Thornton, Isn't -

.a cordially outstretched hand.

np to Matlock with outstretched bands
"While you two have been gossiping
I've been remembering your weakness
for tea and nave drawn you a cup.
Will you como In, or Ehall we have lt
out here?"
They went in. Near tho little fern
"creened fireplace was a toa table,
dainty in Itu array of polished silver
and thin china. The hanging lamp
shed tho rich, soft glow of olbre oil,
and there was an air of intimate home
likeness about everything. Matlock
had been n stranger to that sort of
thing for so long that lt sent a kind cf
thrill shivering through him. After all,

white hand to Inclose In yours-Cyn

close for the professor, and then sat

Before Mr. Horace Matlock went to

the morrow Cynthia Thornton wn3 to
drive with him In his champagne col
ored trap. How It would harmonize
with her ?oft hair before the ambitious
sun touched it to gold! What a dear,
womanly little treasure of girlish
brigtituess she was, nnybow?
Cynthia only returned from Adams
the nert day a half hour before her
drive and waa, consequently, a blt
tired. Sho was not one to make con
versation, and the quiet and beauty
of the scenes stretched out before hoi*
made her very silent. Matlock, as he
handled the reins, watched. both her
and the landscape. There waa a cer
tain peace about them both. And
peace was, above all things, what ho
The next day Miss Warden wrote to
ber girl chum again: t
"In the beginning of the summer.
Madge, dear, I wrote you that n cer
tain matrimonial venture would bo
'easy, plain sailing.' Alas! I'm afraid
I shall never find port-not, at least,

At this point Miss Warden's pretty
teeth absently caught the top of her
penholder, while she looked dreamily
toward, the sunny, tree lined street

We were greeted at the entrance
with a frontage of iron bars. No
bell was rung. Our guido noise

wo entered a large hall. A long row
of locked doors greeted us on each
side, and a gallery running around
the top of the hall repeated tho
same thing, "These are their
rooms," Bsi?? our guido in an awful
whisper. "They are shut up in
there now-they must not hear us."
This grewsome hall oppressed ono
with a sense of doom, and despair
quito indescribable-no windows, no I
air from the skylight overhead.

only in charge of a keeper for ono

In these cells, he Jtold us, the boys j

Professors come from Tours and
give them instruction at the small
writing table. Once a month they
take a bath, more often if the rela
tives are willing to pay extra for it.
They are escorted to the bath by a
guardian. The isolation of each
boy is so thorough that two brothers j
were once there together for two
years without ever knowing it. The

The boys are known only by the

THE MOB OF 1848.
Dramatic Climax That A-'-cd tho King
of Prussia.
When the disturbance of 1818
broke out in Prussia thc king, Fred
erick William IV., issued many
proclamations. They denounced
those who protested against the old
state of affairs and urged a const itu
tion as "n band of miscreants, most
ly foreigners," and informed "my
dear "Berliners" that ho world never
grant a constitution.
Tho actual fighting, however,
when for days hia troops took bar
rier after barrier, only to bo oppos
ed after each as resolutely half a
block farther down thc street, soon
changed his attitude, and ho an
nounced concessions. Tho troops
wore sont from the city.
When thc soldiers had mnrched
away from all parts of the city sol
emn and silent processions moved
toward thc royal palace. They es
corted thc bodies of those v. ho had j
fallen in tho battle. Tho bodies of
tho slain were borne aloft on litters,
their gaping wounds uncovered,
their bends wreathed with laurels
and immortelles. So the procession
marched into the inner courtyard of
the palace.
The litters were placed in rows
on tho courtyard floor, and around
them stood tho multitude of men
with pallid faces, begrimed with
powder, smoke and blood, many of
thom still parrying the weapons with
which they hod fought during the
night, and between them women and
children bemoaned their dead.
The king was loudly called for.
. He appeared in an open gallery,
pale and dejected, by his side tho
weeping queen.
"Hat off the multitude shouted.
And tho king took oft his hat to tho
dead bejew. Then a deep voice
among the multitude intoned the
old hymn, "Jesus, Mein Zuversicht*'
("Jesus, Mv Befuge"), in which ali
joined. Tho chorus finished, tho
king withdrew, the corpses were lift
ed up again and the procession
moved away in grim solemnit}\
It was a terrible humiliation to
tho crown, afine some tir?? S point
ed answer to the king's address, in
which ?he fighters, har! ?een de
nounced as ? band of miscreants.
Had there.been such among them
Frederick William IV. would hard
ly have survived that moment when
he stood before them alone and de
fenseless and they fresh from the
field of blood, "with guns still in
their hands. Bui at that moment
their cry was not "Death to tho I
king!" nor "Down with royalty 1"
but "Jesus, my refuge 1" - Carl
Schurz in McClure's Magazine.
?e?rg? Du Maurier'ay Double.
George Du Maurier had a double,
and his double was, aa) many people
are aware, Alma-Tadema, So re
markable waa the resemblance that
even their,most intimate friends
frequently mistook them. A cer
tain yo*ng lady, hower v prided
herself that she had no < .... .atty in
determining which waa which. On
one occasion, finding herself seated
next to Du Maurier at dinner, sho
remarked: .
"I cannot understand how any
one can mistake you for Mr. Tade
ma. . To me the liker ?sa is very
slight." Presently she added: "By
the way, T have a photograph of
you. Do be so good as to put your
autograph to it.'7
Mr. Du Maurier assenting gra
ciously, the photograph was after
ward produced. He looked at it
for a moment* sighed and then very
gently laid it on the table.

The Schoolmaster's Lifo la Ono of Dig

"Most village schoolmasters in
China have qualified themselves for
thc post by having failed at least
once in the government triennial
examinations," says a critic in tho
China Mail. "After two failures
tho scholar turns without any hesi
tation to this lucrative Employment

One of the young architects who
delivers lectures on modern archi
tecture in tho eeriea of free public
school lectures in Kew York, says
a writer in the New York Sun, had
just showA his audience the beau
ties of the Cologne cathedral when
he thought of an exp?rience he once
had on a similar occasion.
"It was at tho conclusion of my

Prentiss and Hie WK*
Sergeant S. Prentiss was a great
lawyer and an eloquent orator as
well as a humorist, but his humor,
though at times excessive, never ob
scured his oratory ot weakened his
argument. He was oben engaged in
a political discussion on "tho stump''
with a gentleman who was wordy,
dull and spoke "against time'" so
that Picnti?B might speak at a dis
advantage. It was nearly dark when
Prentiss rose? and thc samo moment
i a jackass in a neighboring pound
I began braying and kept it up until
Prentiss' friends were annoyed and
I his opponents delighted. When the
jackass stopped, Prentiss, casting a

onifit, said
"I dfijLnot come' here today to
reply ? to two equally eloquent
speeches."" Then ho sat down, and i
his friends carried him from the
