residence at Ville D'Aray at midnight.
He was quite conscious to the last. TI10
death agony lasted two hours. Spuller,
Eticnno and Dr. Frcnztt wero pptsent at
tho last rjioraout. Tho physicians who at
tended stated that his death was due to
pymseia, caused by suppressed erysipelas.
A clot of blo'ul formed in tho heart aud
suffocated the deceased. A plaster cast of
the face was taken this morning. There
will be an autopsy to-morrow. A Btatu
funeral is expected to bo given.
The death of Gambetta created mi im
mense sensation here. Groyps gathered on
tho boulevards by o'clock this morning
discussing it. It is reported he will be
buried at Nice beside his mother. Presi
dent Grevy was much affected by the news.
Gambetta left do political testament. He
raado a private will Saturday. The papers
respecting his death arc selling in every
street and crowds are struggling to procure
Telegrams were sent President Orevy and
other authorities immediately after his
death. Gambetta died in a state of un
consciousness, but in tho afternoon he ex
claimed, "Je suis perJu; il est inutile de
dis.imulur, man-j' ai tant iouff.rt qua co
sera une deliverauce."
HOW UK uird.
For nearly twenty hours before Gambet
ta became unconscious he complained that
he was tortured with pain, as if a ball of
red-hot iron were inside him. He had re
cently became asthmatic, and it was there
fore permissible to ventilate his room prop

epoke to Bert, member of the chamber of
deputies, upon some matters weighiugou his
mind, but always briefly. Ranc and Sput
ter were summoned to his bodside for the
purpose of receiving communication, but
the syncope preceding death had begun
when they arrived. It is believed Hie
hopeful tone of the bulletius issued during
Garubetla's illuess was duo to the advice ot
Dr. Charcot, who did not wish the sick
man, when papers were read him, to hear
anything might have a depressing effect.
Io C'Uiro? of the afternoon Gambetta ex
claimed : "I am lost. It is meles to dis

will be a deliverance."

"At a late hour, last night, the entire
population of tho city was awakened by

uoises it has ever been the mUlorluno of
Inniiiu ears to listen to. It was a series of
heart-reuding and tympanum-bursting ol
yells, as if
"All the fli oda that ever full,
Had waked aud pealed I he banner cry of hull."
Those in the neighborhood of the river
sprang from their beds, under the impict-s-ion
that a menagerie had broken loose aud
engaged in a death-grappol on the levee.
Men grasped their revolvers and cliot-gucs,
women went into hysterics and fainted,
whilo children screamed with terror. Aud
well they might, for a more utterly infernal
racket never awoko tho echoes of tho low

uorvotis people thought that Gabriel was
sounding his last trumpet and full upon
their knees supplicating for nieicy.
It subsequently transpired that tho fiend
isli shrieks wero from too new fangled bow-
gag ot a steam whistle ou tho steamer Will
Kyle. It was undoubtedly tho same noise
which drove nearly the entiro population
of Louisville out of their houses and into
the streets a few uights ago. A hearty
reception with cannon and shot guns is pre
dicted for the Kyle at the bands of the
populace dowu the Mississippi, if that
whistlo is allowed to gut in its wmk there,
as it has en thu Ohio."

A Soliloquy on Carviue.
Speaking about onrviiig, there is a
pro-jiect now that in our br"d rl roles,
wiilini n short time. thf old nutotn of
making tho host demolish tin? kiln-dried
poultry nt dinner will become extinct,
mid that 11 mtviui! nt 11 side hoard, on a
"intill salary will lake a hand-.ssiw und a
can of nitro glyrerino mid shatter the
ivuiaius,. thus giving the host 11 chaneu
to Hint with his guests Instead of sput
tering thorn with' dressing and ca.'-ting
gloom and gravy over the company.
This is a move for which I have "long
eonieiided. It places the manual labor
of a dinner where it belongs, and re
lieves a man who should give his whole
attention to the entertainment of his
friend nt titblo. You would not export
your host to tako off his coat and kill 11
fowl in your presence fn order to how
you that it was nil on the square, and it
is not customary to remote the proprie
tor of the house, to pc.i'f !lio potatoes at
the table for his guests to prove that
there is 110 put-up job about il.
Therefore I ilaini that the luni'iiited
hen may bo thoroughly Minitored at 11
side table by an athlete at four dollars
per week, and still good faith towhrd
tho guests be maintained. Tf any one
be doubtful or auspicious, eiiiiieiie will
permit him to stand by I lie .side of I ho
hireling carver and witness the inquest.
Still 't would bo better fun for him to
sit nt the table, and if the parts given
him tiro not satisfactory, ho can put
them in his overshoes pro torn, and cas
ually throw them out the back dooi
whilo the other guests ore likening to
the "Maiden's Prayer"' in the parlor.
Under tho new deal the ho-t will en
joy the dinner much more than he used
to with his thumb cut off and a quart of
dressing in his lap. No man feels per
fectly at homo if no has to wrap up his
ctit linger in a rag and then scoop a
handful of dressirrg out of his pocket
and return it to tho platter.
It is also annoying to hnvu twenty
guots ask for tho "dark meat, please,"
when there aro only throo an in nils cook
ed mid ueither one of them has a parti
cle of dark meat uhout " her person.
Lately I have adopted tho plan of
segregating the fowl by main strength,
using the lingers when necessary, and
then wiping them in nn oll'-haini man
ner on the tablo cloth. Then I u.sk the
servant to bring in the dark hen we
ordered, so that we might havo nn
nbuudanceof dark meat. If tho servant
sa there is none, I smile and tell the
guests that tho brunette chicken, by
some oversight, has been eaten in the
kitchen, and I shall have to iv! them
such relics' as may be at hand. J his
simplifies the matter, and places mo in
a far more agreeable place relative to.
the company. My great suece. how
ever, in carving is inainlj eoiuined to
tho watermelon. The watermelon does
not confiiao me. I alwaxs know where
to find the joiuts, and thoMi who do not
like tho inside, of the tuolon can' have
tho outside. Now, my great tr.iiU
with fowls.is, that one day 1 have Ne
braska chicken and tlfrrTit.xt trip I have
to assassinate a Mormon Shanghai pul
let, wit 11 high, expressive lnp-honcs and
amalgam paletot. This makes mo
nervous, because thr.v ore so-dissimilar
and their joints are in different places.
Tho Mormon hen is round-shouldered
and her collar-bone is iienc on the bias
than the Nebraska fowl. This gives a
totally (litlerent expression to her foa
lures in death, and, as I have siiid, de
stroys the bvminotrv of the carve.
I he - ,;i iy education in this lino by
curt i.j j o (!' in hot weather, and
gradually led Io the quail on loa.st. in
carving lh? quail, liiM mortgage 0111
home and got tho quail. The quail
should be cooked before carv ing, but
not until the chronometer balance and
other organs have been removed. Place
your quail on the toast in a .silting posi
tiou, then passing the dissenting kuito
down between tho shoulder blades,
bisect the polonaise.
Another method is, to take tin quail
by the hind leg and eat it. asking the
guests to do tho same. This breaks up
the leeling ot stillness that is apt to pre
vail at a formal dinner party, ami while
each one has his or ln-r misu immersod
in quail, eitod feeling cannot fail toshow
How It Struck a Half-witted Girl.
There were several person in the
room when the minister if,led. 0110 ol
whom was 11 very talkiitively-pious old
lady, und another 11 half-witted young
woman, ui course tne old lady at onei:
entered into conversation with the min
ister, the half-wilted 0110 sittiritzbv. dis-
hcu lling her hair, and now ami then
venturing 11 remark. I ho old woman
commenced in tho usual way, by stating
her exceeding sinfulness, und her con
scious need ot repentance. After la
mooting at considerable length tho evil
that were tomiitiug and the sins that
were besett ing br she suddenly changed
tho current of hnr words,
"But then," H.iid she, "Mr. , the
Lord is merciful, and knows our weak
ness. Ho has begun a good work
with 1110; yes, He has begun a good
"Ah!" Kiiid tho half-witted girl, dis
continuing her employment for a mo
ment; "Ah! Ho don't know what He'
Of course tho talk was over, and the
minister left tho premises instauter.
