THE TRUE BLUEBEARD
He Was a Cruelly and Malevo
lently Maligned Frenchman.
NOT A MURDEROUS MONSTER.
He Had Matrimonial Misfortunes, It
Is True, but He Seems to Have Been
the Only One Who Cama to Grief on
Account of Them-His Tragic End:
The supposedly detestable Bluebeard.
the monster of murderous polygamy.
the very name of the ogre Into whose
mouth one used. If one could, In child
hood's happy hour. to throw india rub
be= balls, was In truth a man who has
been as cruelly and malevolently ma
ligned by history as Nero, Richard III.,
Macbeth, tutti quanti. So says M.
Anatole France-and pray who can
speak with iilgher authority on the
real facts of faery?-In "Les Sept
Femmes de la Barbe-Bleue et Autres
Contes Merveilleux." One knew al
ready that Charles Perrault Srst wrote.
in about 1060. the historical biography
of Bluebeard, but one did no! know
until now how deeply Perrault, prob
ably through false information, wrong
ed the memory of an excellent and Ill
treated personage. From M. France
we learn that M. Bernard de Montra
goux, of old and noble descent, lived
in 16Z0 or thereabouts at the ancestral
Chateau Lea GuElettes. on his estates
between Compiegne and Pierrefonds.
The castle, of frowning outward as
pect, was inside a treasure house of
taste and wealth. Its owner. contrary
to long .:sting tradition, wore no
beard. only a mustache and a little
tuft below the lower lip. He was
known through the countryside as
Bluebeard because his hair was very
black, and therefore his close shaven
cheeks and chin were markedly blue.
He was a fine figure of a man who.
In spite of his manifest advantages as
a good match, did not get on well with
women of his own rank In life. This
was due to an Incurable shyness on his
part Pleasant and pretty girls who
had been well brought up attracted
him immensely. but also filled him
with an Indescribab- terror.
The first notable result of this af
fliction was that the unfortunate or
phan, for such he had been since his
early youth. incapable of making pro
posals for. the hand of any of the at
tractive and high born ladies in the
tzeighborhood, married a certain Co
lette Passage, a fascinating girl in her
way, against whose character nothing
seems known, who was going round
the country with a dancing bear.
Things went well enough for a few
months, and then Colette, who had at
Arst reveled In being a lady of qual
ity, began to long for her old freedom.
The longing became IrresistIble, and at
last she took her departure secretly
with her justly beloved bear. It Is
noteworthy that they made their es
cape by way of a room that had a door
leading to what had been water
meadows, and so to open country.
Perrault called this room -le petit cab
inet." but It was also known as "the
wretched princesses' room." because
a Florentine painter had covered Its
walls with the most lifelike figures of
Circe, Niobe and Procris. The tragic
efect of these paintings was enhanced
by the porphyry flooring of the room.
which suggested bloodstains.
Montragoux appeared mnconsolable
at the disappearance, which was com
plete, of Colette. his first wife, and
doubtless his lot would hare been far
less unhappy If he had never tried to
console himself. This, most unfor
tunately, he did by marrying one
Jeanne de la Cloche, who turned out
to be a violent dipsomaninc. Blue
beard was of a nature so kindly and
noble that, although In a fit of mad
passion she nearly killed him with a
kitchen knife, he continually hoped to
reclaim her by kindness. But Or.. usy
she strayed into the generally shut up
princesses' room, took the painted fig.
ares for real people and was so terri
fed that she rushed wildly Into the
open fields, tumbled into a deep pool.
and so was drowned.
So things went on, a new affliction
with each new wife, and in each case
the final catastrophe was associated
with the princesses' room. The climax
to the unhappy career of the more
than worthy and lovable Bernard de
Montragoux came with his seventh
wife, Jeanne de Iespoisse, cleverest
admost fascinating of a family of
utterly unscrupulous adventurers. No
one knew anything about the supposed
late husband of the mother. Of the
two brothers, a dragoon and a musket
eer, one was a low rascal and a mere
sponge; the other lived on gaming and
on the good nature of women to whom
he made love. Anne, the sister, was
the incarnation of malicious cunning
Essocated with this precious family
was a certain Chevalier de Merlus,
who had a great deal to do with the
final tragedy of Md. de Montragoux's
career. The nature of this tragedy
may be- Inferred, but It Is cnrious that,
while Perrault represented Bluebeard
as taking a journey In order to lay a
rp for his wife, the fact was exactly
opposite. Both before and after his
marriage he had heapedI benefits on
all these wretches. When he was
obliged to go away In the matter of
an Inhcritance he gave ala his keys
without reserve to his wife, warning
her out of pure love against the un
happy associations of the princesses'
room. As soon as he was out of the
way a trap was laid for him, and It
was In that very room that he was
most treacherously assassinated. The
worst and the best of It was that M.,
de Merlus, after marrying the wealthy
widow, became an exemplary husband
and subject of the king.

A CURIOUS CHIMNEY.
One in Wales Two Miles High With a
Brook Running Through It.
Who ever heard of a chimney two
miles high with a brook running
through it? Yet such a chraey exists
in connection with the copper works
at Cwmavon. near Aberavon, in Gla
morganshire. south Wales. This is how
it came to be built:
About sixty years ago the copper
smoke from these works was the
plague of the neighboring countryside.
It settled upon and destroyed the
grass for twenty miles round, while
the sulphur and arsenic In the fumes
affected the hoofs of cattle. causing
gangrene. The owners of the works
tried ail sorts of devices to remedy tbe
trouble, but In vain. Finally Robert
Brenton. who was afterward a suc
cessful railway engineer in India. solv-I
ed the problem.
The copper works are at the foot of
a steep hill. Mr. Brenton constructed
a flue, or chimney, running continu
ously from the base to about a hun
dred feet above the summit. following
the natural slope of the ground. The
brick which lined it and of which it.
was largely constructed was burned
close by. A small spring gushing out
near the summit of the hill was turned
into the chimney and allowed to flow
through almost Its entire length to
condense the smoke. Once a year it is
swept out and about a ton of precipi
tated copper obtained. Its top can be
seen for between forty and fifty miles.

Paris Student Restaurants.
Student rest'iurants In Paris are an
insttution that Amerlcans may well
envy. They are run solely for the ben
eft of the students, although stran;:ers;
are welcome. There are certain little'
formalitIes that must be observed.
For Instance. It is the duty of every
one entering to bow to the madame
and say. "Bonjour. madamne." or -Bon
soir, madame." according to the time
of day. After one has fini'shed his1
meal he asks for the "additione." asi
the bill is called. When it is presented
by the trim little waitress it is con
sidered only proper to say. "Merci.
mademoiselle." Hie then leaves a tip;
of 10 centimes, or 2 cents, and, again
bowing to the madame and saying,
"Bonjour" or "Bonsoir," he is at liber
ty to leave. The highest priced article
on the bill of fare is 75 centimes. or
15 cents, and this in all students' res
taurants is a chateaubrifand, a tender
piece of beefsteak surrounded with
potatoes sousle. Never drink French

It Should Be a Substantial Meal, Says
It is customary to make the first
meal of the day slightly the lightest,
and distinctly the plainest and sim
plest of the three. If there be any
deficiency of the appetite breakfast is
the meal at which this is most likely:
to show itself. Put this lack of appe
tite I-: in n!nc cases out of ten clearly
traceable to sleeping in an unventilat

night before or to insufcient exercise
the preceding day and is no indication:
that the body really requires less food
at this time. Perfectly healthy men
who sleep with their windows open
and go to bed at a reasonable hour will
tell you that they enjoy their break
fast as well as any other meal of the
day, and many even call it their best!
Another popular delusion in regard
to the lightness and unimportance of
the breakfast is that widespread sub

fruit or a single roll. This is a very
