"I can not alter niy circumstances or my

"Then I should adviso you to change

ho moved toward the door.
Leon threw down his palette and brushes
with an angry laugh.

"Good-day," reiterated the money-lender
for the third time, ns he passed out.
He paused on the threshold to launch
one Parthian si a ft.
" You might as well have let me have
your picture, you see. It will probably bo
in my possession Ibis time next week."
The young man uttered a passionate in
articulate exclamation, nnd snatching up a
brush loaded with color dashed it across
"There take it now, if you like!" he
But the suilden gust of passion subsided
in a moment: the brush fell from his hand:
he gazed in a sort of horror at the defaced
picture. What had ho done? It seemed
as if ho had killed a living creature, the
companion of his solitude, the conlldant of
all Ins hopes.
"That is a finishing touch with a ven

Nearly four hours had passed in this

The rain had censed, nnd the moon
gleamed fitfully through broken and dis

with a 'tremulous lustre, and when a little
flaw of wind struck the surface evciy rip

The bridge was deserted except for a sol.
itary loiterer like himself, leaning with
folded arms on the parapet, at a little dis
tance. Something in tho man's figure and atti
tude struck him as familiar. He scrutin
ized him for a moment with growing hope,
then moved toward him. He soon saw
that he had not been deceived by a chance
resemblance. It was Ion who stood there,
looking down gloomily at tlio river. Ah
Borbod in his thoughts, he did not perceive
the other's approach till he felt a hand on
his shoulder,, then ho started and looked
" Monsieur Vautreau ! "
" I thought I was not mistaken," the lat

rooms, and 'was disappointed to find you
from home. Arc you walking my way?"
Without waiting for an irnswer, he link

Lc"on drew back.
No I am not going your way, what
ever it is. For the future- our paths lie
apart, if you please."
"For the future, so be iL But for the

your company for a few uiiuCtes. Are yon
so bitter against mo that you can not grant
me that simple renuest?"
" I am not bUter against you," tlio young
man answered, in a weary tone, moving on
with him mechanically, "l ftm to
wretched to be angry. Despair leaves no
room lor resentment."
"'Despair!' la, ta, ta!" his companion
responded with clieerlul contempt; "d
spairat five-and tvventy, with all the world
before you; whh talent, health, good looks,
and to crown your happiness the love o

short in sheer astonishment.
" How do you know" ho began.
" How do I know that Edmec loves you?
f)u good authority, by George! I had it
from her own lips not many hours ago. I
was not aware till then, Monsieur Leclcrc,
that you wero my niece's hancc-."
The artist stared at him.
"Your niece! KdniiVs undo is Mon

" Yes, that is my name, out of business.

IIo glanced furtively at tho young man's
face, but Leon said nothing; ho seemed
hardly yet recovered from his surprise.
" It1 I had any claim to your forbear
mice," li is companion went on after a
pause, " I might ask you to bo mercifully
silent, to let mo keep unshaken tho love
and trust of the only creature who "
There was an odd break in his voice,
and ho added abruptly, with a change of
tone, " But I have no such claim. Come,
let us walk on. I promised Edmec to
bring you. Nothing short of seeing you
will set her mind at ease, nflcr your letter."
" I w:is half distracted when I wrote it,"
he muttered, apologetically, "after l had

"Come, you havo not failed. Courago

Edme'e had been waiting and watching
In a fever of suspense and nuxicty. She
heard their footsteps on tho stairs, anj
came, out 011 to tlio landing.
Seeing Leon, she uttered a tremulous cry
of joy, which ho echoed, and tho next mo
ment she was clasped in his arms.
M. Uenault watched them as they passed
into the sitting-room, oblivious of himself
and all the world, then gently closed tho
door upon them und went to his own bed

and sat down at tho table, with his hands

Thut a popular fallacy lvg-arding" the

The sun sinks to rest beyond the
distant, horizon; the curtain of night
"Tudually descends and closes out th'1
liirht of day; still the two men walk leis
urely along, feeling safe and secure.
But hark! What sound is that in the
distance? What blood-curdling howl
makes them anv.-t their .-leps? It is.
dear friends it i the cry of the wolvi-s

men do? One of llii-in. my beloved
congregation, realizes his danger, and

of a convenient branch, out of the reach
of the cruel fang of the relentless beasts
of prey, lie called unto his companion,
and said unto him: ". my brother,
reach out and take hold of this branch,

But the oilier said: "No, there is no

THE LEVEES STILL SAFE.
BULK HEADED ALL
Matters upon the river nnd around tho
levee remain about tho sama at this writing
as Thursday.' About two o'clock yesterday
afternoon the engines whistled, fire bells
rang and for half an hour the people wero
wild with excitement as men and boys
rushed along tho streets spreading the
alarm sad reporting a brenK in the new
levee of some thirty feet. This proved to
bo a falsj alarm caused by a crack in the
leveo lengthwiBO that for a short time
threatened dire consequences, but men of
mettle to direct, and men of musdo to work
were at hand aud the danger was averted.
Half an hour after tho alarm, Chief My
ers arrived from tho front and from him we
received tho assurance that the water had
not come in, nnd barges were being towed
around that would strengthen and save the
leveo if they arrived in time.

health to the child, operating like magic.
It is perfectly sale to use in all cases, and
pleasant to the taste, nnd is the prescrip
tion of one of the oldest Hlld best fetn.llo
