WEDNESDAY, OCT. 2, 187a
Among the many instances of female
goodness and devotion to worthy ob
jects, during the French i evolution of
17925, few are inoro touching, or mora
remarknblo than the following:
A young man of interesting appear
ance, and an agreeable countenance, wis
incarcerated in n prison at-Bordeaux.
His name was Dn Bois. Bad diet, bod
air, and the dismal prospect liefore him,
operated unfavorably uioit his health,
and he was removed to an hospital to
receive medical treatment. It mav well
be Imagined that D:i Bois felt but littli
unxicty in relation to his sickness, oi
its results, being as well reconciled to
die on his bed of dlseaso an to suffer
upon (he scaffold. The only solace of
his melancholy situation was derived
from the visits of a young and beautiful
lay ulster by the mime of Theresa.
She wax an entile stranger to him
previous to Ills removal to the hopllitl ;
but she was now the only being that
ramo to Hofien the bed of srekness. At
first her visits were received without
much emotion ; but at length his in
difference wore of)', and tho daily com
ing or Theresa was tliu only subject (hat
employed his thoughts. Although the
purest benevolence had brought her to
the hospital, yet Sister Theresa had been
pleased with tho noble features of I)u
jlow, and was equally gratified when she
learned that he was not wanting in tho
Mill nobler attributes of the noul.
Churuied witli his good sense, and per
ceiving unit iter proonco gavo Dim
pleasure, her visits grew more " frequent.
flie result was that by looking into
tlieir own hearts they discovered some-

One morning Theresa left Du Bois in

where Uu Bois was contiued, she met
the house physician.
"You are still employed in deeds of '

"I do not rcfuso my poor services to

there is room enotuih for benevolent

"Yes, plenty or woik for prierts and

"Alas! doctor, whv should von ask?"
'Some einptv beds this moriiiii". My

"No, thev do not thank the just and

they go into more lenient hands."
How fares Du Bois? Is lie well
enough to go out and tako the air?''
ndded the doctor, significantly.
"Poor fellow! hu is almost gone.
There Is scarcely u breath left in him.
Let us go ami look at him.
"Not so bad, Sister Theresa not so
