young youth I chanced in Paris, for Iho first time.
io no one evening in summer sanntering nownine
llnnlevard Montmartri'. I was just meditating the
advisability of seating myself at a small ta'ilo before
oneot the larger resiaurants and doing as Iho rest,
ordering absinthe and sitting to sip Iho llqnld eme

tapped mo on tho shoulder.
"Where aro yon wandering, my yonng friend?"

"I hen." ho says heartily, let mo lead jouasMo

"Ilthero ben better." replied I; as.llko allverv

"Is not lint a giil worthier nt your worshlplul

" I ahonl I say so Hut" I guimed ilcprccatlngly
at my costume.
"on, Mine. Sand will not see your clothes, my
dear fellow, she will have eyea bnt for yonr soul;

"ion nave more commence in ncraicium man

" Mai! oiif, moil enfant. A woman, she possesses
Instincts; we men are bnt tcasonora. They arc like

"And you, if tho valuation be high enough, will

the concierge an argument In favor of his Intimacy
and together we climb n trolsleme.
"Is Mine. Sand at home?"
" Madame will ho nt homo In half nn hour. Mad
amc Just now Is In her bath. Hut Messieurs ate
begged to enter nnd amuse themselves In the snloon,
tho music room, the Horary where they will,"
"Ho-lt Is welll" cries the Cerlllac, stepping with
iho assured air of tho habitue within the heavy
" Enter, my friend. So It Is that yon will become
accustomed to tho atmosphere which George Sand
dally breathes before you aro actually ushered Into
There was something unusual about the atmos
phere. It must be admitted.
There was a heavy odor of mnsk scenting the
apartment and tho candles shone through tho violet
hned silken shades; there were any number of great
mirrors, divided by curtains of crimson velvet, low
tables strewn with books, brlc-a-brao and rose
leaves, groat plcturea representing some of the
splendors of Venice In her palmy days, the dreamy
face ot Chopin. Its sad eyes glancing from the
silvered frame, and a thousand other things that 1
grew to know well In days to follow. But, stranger
and more Bublly sweet than the odor of the essence,
there floated to us the fragrance of fresh violets;
vondcr they were In a Venetian gloss on a card
bracket. Just above an easel.
And lar more fascinatingly attractive than the
splendid nil paintings that covered the walls wasthat
oblect which the easel held.
It was a violin. A violin ot Stradirarlus's, fas
tened by delicate silver chains and pins to a large
plaque ofUolet velvet, nndwilllen In silver letters
above It were these words ;
" ct (lore fame tie San Outdo "
I glanced Interrogatively at de Cerlllac, whose eyes
had followed mine.
"A romance?" Isav.
" or the most romantic," he answers.
"You know It?"
"Well." DeCcrlllao sighs ss his nervous fingers
lightly touch the silent strings.
" May not 1 ? We navo a half hour."
"True. Yes, I will tell It you. Alexis, man en
fant, were George Sand twenty-flve years younger I
shonld not have Drought you here to-night. Why?
Becausoyouarejustoneof those boys who would
fall a victim to her charms. You arc of the snlrltucl
pardon me half effeminate type to which Chopin,
de Mussel, and poor San Guldo belonged.
"I laugh. Time, mon im(e, will lead your poor
young Alexis, perhaps, nearer to the masculine
standard. Butof your San Guldo? .Atfons.'"
"Yes, yes; splrltuel, beautiful, twenty, with all
the languorous passion ot Italy In his dark eyes;
with the eager thirst ot pleasure fresh on hla curved,
beardless ltps; with his white brow full of the poetry
of love, and with muslo and enthusiasm In hts heart,
the HomanhoycamouptoParls. From babyhood al
mostthe violin had been his plaything, his best friend.
He had caressed It as a beloved rouUdantc. He now
worshipped tt as a inlslress. I remember, myself
hut a boy, his debut nt the house ot the Duchesne de
M . Ills Ruccess was electrical, and shortly there
was not a muslcale given In Paris thst could be com
sldered complete without at least one solo from San
Guldo. In the conrse of that winter It was, 1 think,
early In February I was here In this room when he
waa brought by some Journalist ot repute to call
upon George Sand. I recall hla entrance, with the
tiny page at his heels carrying his violin case. He
was to play for her? Of course. Mme. Sand stood
yonder leaning In one other Inimitable half-masculine
attitudes against the piano. In an Instant her
bold and comprehensive eyes I saw had recognized
their prey. San Guldo perceptibly shuddered and
as ho raised the massive white hand to his lips the
crimson died out of them ns though they had gieeted
" Fate," I whisper, " fale !"
" Truly," de Cerlllao assents. "For a few mo.
inents he could scarcely articulate, but I hat waa no
matter, for Madame, although keenly alive to her
new friend's discomfiture, was of too kindly a. dlspo--slttou
to permit even the humblest guest beneath
her roof to be long 111 at ease. She spoke first to
some one else standing near her, thus giving the
voung violinist time to recover somewhat Ms equa
nimity, and then with one o those brilliant ana Ini-
netuoua smiles that wrought a transformation on
her heavy face she spoke to him of Italy music ;

sence and nature of that firebrand of the world i
I'nnioHr, IVunoiir, tojom I'amourl" I could see
evil with ray tinpractlced eyes for being fat and not
splrltuel, I had been proof, so far, to Madame'afascl
nattons I could sec, I say, that the future of the
Roman youth was ecalcd. Very shortly he played
to tho guests? No, no, man enfant. Solely to tho
w Idc and absorbing eyes ot his liostesn, and marrel
ously. I lia c heard all tho great virtuosi of tho last
score of years, and yet never have I listened to such
muslo as that which poor San Guido drew from that
violin over yonder. When he had finished she took
from a vase near by a cluster of violets and handed!
them to him, and with ber own hand poured out for
him a glass of wine.
He took the violets and thrust them within bis
vest, next to his heart, and, with the audacious grace
ot twenty, touched the wine-glass to George Sand's
lip ere he drained It with his own. I sighed for him,"
murmured de Cerlllac, "fori could not but think
upon Chopin and de Mussel, two men whose eyes
look sadly from all their portraits be they by pen
or brush becauso of the lady whose coming wo

11 Willi him? As true and pure, a love, Alexis, as
man ever was faithful to. With her? Well, well,
one may be allowed to politely question, you know,
whether any woman be capable of love at all; but
one who knows Mme. Sana ne er makes that sue-
Seetlon even to his own mind. It wasanlntellectual
lsslpatlon to her an excitement the like of which
she could not do weil without. Ah, she seemed to
drain hla lips and cheeks of their blood to crimson

"Almost entirely; In fact, very soon he could not

cunning, l would rind him lying on that rug there,
at her feet, his thin face within his palms; bis great
eyes upturned, drinking In the strength of that

he would play airs caught from the sorrowful Inspi

An Army's March Arrested by Loentts.
All the Year Round.)
Of all destructive foes none arc more dreaded In
most Eastern lands than the locusts, whose dire
visitations may well be deemed national calamities.
In point of fact, the lands which are exempt from
their occasional presence arc the favored few. A
very few details of their Invasion ot southern Russia
In the year of 1819 and 1880 will give us some Idea of
their multitude. They fell upon theprovincelot Cau
casus, utterly destroying vineyards and gardens
blockading the streets bo that (radio was suspended;
rilling the ovens, so that for several days baking was
quite out ut the question; and so choking the water
courses that not a cup of water could be drunk unttl
In Georgia they fairly routed a detachment ot Rus
sian troops, who, not llklnc to tutn aside on their
march repelled by mere Insects, attempted to face
the locust army, although report said It covered
twenty square miles of country. So the soldiers
advanced, but soon found themselves literally cov
ered by the clinging, creeping Insects, which crawled
all o er them, until finally the men fairly turned and
Bed, slipping and sliding astbeyranoverthecmshed
and oily bodies of their myriad Iocs. Forforty-elght
hours they were detained, taking reruge In a village,
and assisting the Inhabitants to kill millions of the
Invaders, whose corpses they carted off to manure
the fields, which, however, were In the meantime
stripped of every blade of grass or corn, and the
trees shorn of every green letf.
On the road from Tlllls to Poll the lucusts lay so
thick on the line that tho trains were obstructed.
Large districts of southern Russia were swept as
bare of all vegetation as If a tire had raged over Ihe
land, and hundreds of peasants, utterly beggared,
abandoned their homes to seek bread whereter It
might be found. In the province ot Cherson alone
a Bum of nfty thousand rubles wss voted by govern
ment for expenditure in the effort to free the land
of this plague; In another district twenty thousand
persons ere employed dally for three months In the
same work; the government expenditure on the
whole organization waa estimated at two hundred
thousand rubles, without any calculation of the Joss
on crops of all descriptions.
Another notable scene of locust-plague waa Algeria
In the year 1800, when Ihe damage done by these
Insects was estimated at fifty million francs, nnd
resulted In a famine so appalling that two Hundred
thousand natlvea died of starvation.
