The Story of a Galley Slave.
Adapted from the popular play, "A Cblb
Jean's ktHivlml(,'e of the country did
liim (fool nerrice, anil at lnj;th he pained
the fields lieyond the outixjstu, and was
able to pursue hia way rapidly. The
roads were full of Blrap-jflere and camp
follower", and the knowledjre of the im
mense value of the jewels that he carried
kept him on the alert for every sound
His joy when the well known cottage
was iu nipht can be iniHtfined, and pining
the little lawn in front, he had a glimpse
of the sweet picture within Madeleine
sittitiff in her low chair with Adrienne
kneeling by her side.
"I knew you would come, papa," cried
Adrienne, aa soon as nlie could recover
breath after his embrace. "Mamma and
I have watched for you ever so long!"
"Why, my pet, how did you know that
papa was near you f"
"Some one waa here," said Adrienne,
laughing gaily. "And he had his eoup
"Why, yes," said Madeleine, hastening
to explain. "One of your regiment, Jac
ques Latour. He told U3 so much news I
that his niujer.ty and the dauphin are
with the army, and that our countess ie
on her way toD'Aubretot."
"I sf e you know all the budget. Yes,
we arrived last night. Madeleine, you
and Adrienne must keep within doors
awhile. I think every robber in Paris
came with us, but I doubt that they find
many spoils. We have nothing worth
stealing, and our Dutch and English
friends travel still lighter of baggage. I
wish that you and Adrienne wei safe in
the chateau ; but it is too late to go there
to-night or I would put Adrienne on my
shoulder and set out. Well, how did you
like Jacques Latour?"
"Very well. He seemed honest and
good-natured. But never mind him tel)
me how you have been all tueee weeks?"
"As you tee, in good health and in good
spirits, except when I thought of you
and the baby here without me. However,
should we win the buttle to-morrow, nc
doubt the campaign will be ended) and,
then, farewell to Boliliering for me. Tht
count has offered me my old portion at
forester at D'Aubretot, and I have ac
cepted." 'Ah. Joan, if you only would giye nt
this terrible life, all made up of parting!

preparations for Jean's supper to throw
her arms around his neck and thank bin

and excitement, and the determination no,
to give wuy liefore him, but to encourage
him by tho assumption of gaiety, gave an
unnatural brilliancy to her checks and
Madeleine wore the peasant's costume
when at Antoin a short, bright, scarlet
petticoat, n liluck jacket, and a colored
apron j long gold eur ringf, and a gold
chain and cross. Tliis dress was peculi
arly becoming to her tall, rounded figure,
and she wore it with eose snd graceful
nens. It was Jean's favorite dress. He
rather disliked the long skirts which she
put on when in Paris so as to look as if
bho belonged to the city.
The little party quite enjoyed the hasti
ly arranged supper. Adrienne sat on her
father's knee, her golden ringlets touch
in": his powdered hair and long braided
queue, which was a source of endless
amtiHenient for her. One delicate little
arm and hand rested on his neck, the
other alternately fed him and herself.
Madeleine waited on father and child, and
tried to forget the morrow.
At that ieriod the dress of the French
Guards was more picturesque than prac
tical for fighting purposes. "The army
was at that time," sayn one of their own
writers, "enslaved by the fashion of pow
der and queues." The coat worn by the
French Guards was of dark blue. All the
soldiers wore a belt and a large shoulder
llt. Both pieces were made of silk.
Those for the co'i (Ttiite being adorned
with lace. The pointed hat was mounted
on n paste-board block, without fur. The
foot -soldiers had a cartridge-box for cart
ridges, worn on their right side in their
belt, and on the left a hanger, which held
at the same time the sword and the bayo
Adrienne, having satisfied her hanger,
began to play with the cattridge-box, and
to exert her small strength in opening it.
Jean looked meaningly at Madeleine.
"I have not much longer to stay with
you, Adrienne, kiss papa and go to lied
niHtnma and I have- something to say to
"Ah, no, please let me stay with you,M
suid Adrienne, throwing her arms around
his neck, and pressing kisses on his
cheeks and lips. Jean held her in his
arms for some minutes longer, wondering,
as men will, at the beauty and fragility of
the little creature who was hie very own,
whoso very helplessness held bitu bound as
tf in chains. Ro, for some minutes, father
and child sat thus, without speaking, un
1il the sacred stillness made Adrienne
drowsy, and Madeleine took her from
Jean's reluctant arms and carried her in
to the next room, where she laid her
giM.tly on tlio bed, put a light covering
over her, and then returned to Jean,
lie was sitting nearer the table, on
j which lay his cartridge-box, empty

"Ah, Jean, do not speak like that. 1
cannot boar it."
"But, Madeline, some must fall, and 1
do not bear a charmed life. Be sonsil le,
my darling, and listen to mo. Tlii inoti' y,
if necessary, can be so placed, an to keej
you and Adrienne from want. If I do not
come buck you will give It to Count d'Au
bretot to invest for your bum-lit. Promim.
"I do 1 will," said Madeleine, with an
effort to gain her self control.1 "What a
pretty pitrite, Jean! It has a coronet
worked in thin corner ''
"Yes j it belonged to the Count da Mor
tiasse. Voit will keep it, Madeleine, as H
Souvenir; one of tho e days it may prove
useful to uh Now, tiiei-e I'iirlciifcs, in

to carry out, must reach the Cour.tes
Valentino tie Mornasse at Anus, where
she lives with her aunt, s cauones. You
see these are all paper, t it lo-deeds to es
tates i and in this ca- ket see! Jean pressed
a spring, tho lid opened, and i Madeleine
gave a igh of admiration at thji brilliancy
and sizi uf the diamonds thusj disclosed.
"They were her mother's Jewel TliH
signet l ing of the count's I will put with
them. And now, Madeleine, where is the
safest place to hide tliein Ai swi as
possible after to morrow they must reach
their proper owner. I do not like the re

"I suppose the siifcst place will be in
the Swiss l. with my nccklae''. 'If is
large enough to hold all of them."
"Well, get it j rial now you shall hear
all atmut them."
Whilo Madeleine unlocked Mir cupboard
and took out her tressnr, d I ' X, Jan dea
cr'died his finding of the wounded count,
and Mieir long interview, While talking,
he held Madeline's necklace to the lamp,
letting the rays fall on 1 tie l..n!:r.g gems,
to admire them, and then he caref'illy ar
ranged the jewels and pnt cis b-Mde it on
"Toone dreams of what this cottage
contains, Madeleine, or you would scarce
ly be safe in it when I am away."
"Alas! Jean, only this morning Adri
enne asked for the necklace before some
of our neighbors, and I was silly and v sin
enough to let them see it."
"Who were they?"
"Marie Meyer, Aglae Leroux. Annette
Despard, and Victorine Gabeille. Of course
they are all honest, but "
"But they are gossips, and may talk
Well, Madeleine, cheer up. We will find
a safer place for the gems and gold, and
you can tell our neighbors so and now,
my own darling, I must leave you."
Madeleine threw her arms around him,
unable to utter a word, and for some min
utes only her sobs broke the stillness.
"You will unman me, darling, if you
give way like this, and I need all my
courage now," ho whispered, keeping
back his own tears, while his arms held
her as in a vise. "Madeleine! Madeleine!
I must go. 6urely, purely, yon would not
have your husband called a coward!"
The agony in his voico roustd her. She
lifted her head from his breast, and un
clasped her arms from his neck.
"One minute," she whispered. "Go and
kiss Adrienne, while I put away tho box."
Madeleine placed the box in the cup
board and locked the door, and put the
keys in her deep, int-ide pocket. Going
into the next room, she saw Jean kneel
ing by tho bedside, his gaze fixed on Ad
rienne's upturned sleeping face. Her lit
tle mouth was smiling, Perhaps sho
dreamed of him. Jean kissed the droop
ing eyelids and waxen cheeks, his hot
blinding tears no longer to be kept back,
and then he rushed from the room. Mad
eleine closed the door after her, and Boftly
drew the heavy wooden bolt iuto its sock
et, thus guarding against Adrienne leav
ing the room should she awaken. That
done, the mother gave way to the wife,
and she followed Jeuu out on the lawn,
caught up with him at the gate, and, put
ting her arm iu his, they set but toward
"Just to the top of the hill, Jeun. We
have often walked it together, when you
were sure to be buck in a few hours "
Well, as you will. Should it be our lust
walk together, Madeleine, at least it shall
bo a happy one."
Ho tried to impart to her some of his
own courage and renewed cheerfulness,
but Madeleine had never felt so utterly
It was a lovely night j the stars glit
tered a'xn e the s'ill landscape and the
white cottages slunding out from the
background nf dense forest . The per
fumes from the blossoming orchards and
hedges were watt "d in t lie sweet fresh
air i no sign of tho hostile nrin'es, who
only awai'ed dawn to Wjrin their terrible
Work, was visible where Jean ."nd Made.
(eine finally parted, with a lust passionate
embrace ho to speed away, afraid to
glance behind him, while Madeleine, sink
ing on a rock, gave way to the pent-up
grief and despair so long hiihhm and con
trolled. She sat thus until Jean's tall figure dis
apjieared in a piece of wood through
which his way led, and then, with an ef
fort, rose and turned her face homeward.
Bhe stopped at the gate to secure the
latch, and coming up the Utile path, stood
for a second for a laBt look at t be peace
ful, starry sky, at the dewy, tremulous
May blossoms, and a lingering glance In
the direction of Fontenoy.
"God protect my joor Jnn, to-morrow!"
Bhe murmured. "How shall I live through
it, sitting at home with folded hands! Ah!
well, I am not tho only poor woman fret
ting tlfii night for to-morrow's woo. Ad
rienne will wake and mias me. 1 Poor baby
Adrienne! how little she dream what is
hanging over tit i and she is 10 fond of
her father! If anything should happen
to him, I think the child would die!"
80 saying, Madeleine opened the heavy
door, entered, and turning, secured it
with a strung bolt. Thon, turning again,
she was advancing toward tho table when
she heard a strange, scratching nnlne, anil
looking up saw a man standing in front of
the cupboard, trying to nwm it at the
"t AM WITH TOUR FATIIBR."
No sooner had Juan and Madeleine
passed lieyond the lawn when one of the
windows looking out upon the kitchen
garden was slowly and nnlselussly raised,
and a man sprang into the room. His
first action was to greedily devour the
fond left on the tnMe 1 then lie took a
blunt weapon from IiIm lielt and approach
ed the cupboard. Ills tiloits, however,
were fruitless the dour was too thick.
This man's dark hnir was very long, and
hung loose around hia neck and down
over Ids forehead, not only concealing his
face, but giving a wild, unearthly ex
prcsslon to his fierce eyes and large, de
cided features. He wits ghastly pale, and
hia soiled, torn dress, damp and .muddy,
had scarcely a trace of color left in it. 11
was a cm Ions costume, combined from
that of half a dozen regiments, and gave
no clue to the man's identity. Tall and
powerful, he was fearful In his gaunt
wretchedness, and Madeleine stood be
fore him transfixed with horror, white
and gasping for breath. Unusually
stiong and muscular for her age, and or
dinarily brave and fearless, she now ft-lt
perfectly helpless; the events of the day
bad unnerved her.
"What do you want ?" she at last found
strength to ask, meeting lib sullen, keen
"The key of this door."
"There is nothing there for you," said
Madeleine, the blood rushing to her heart
and tingling through her veins as she
guessed the man's intention.
He laughed, and took a step toward
her, his dark, menacing eyes fixed on her
"Keep off." cried Madeleine, bucking. "I
have nothing that, yon want."
"You forgut the Jewels thst you and
your husband were admiring a few min
utes sine. 1, too, sew them glitter from
outoide. Give 1110 the kej ! quickly, too;
I am in a huny."
"I will not," cried Madeleine seizing s
knife from the tab)", and retreating to
ward the door of the cottage.
"Von will not! We shall al'iit thnt.
You have put it in your pocket. faw
you put. it there. Come, you sre o;.ing
Madeleine's idea wns to rsach toe door,
open it quickly, dart aeto3s the ht'wi.au'l,
by her ici".niifi, alarm the people in the
neiglilsii ing cottages; but her wnry an
tagiuiist, divining her thoughts, suddenly
sjitang foi ward, seized her violently, snd
attempted to confine her h.'i.d mid anna
in his s'roiip, ron0-h gvaap.
Madeleine felt all her st length return
l ig, as if by magic, and up snd down the
orud, eanded floor they fought and strug
gled for the mastery.
Life and death were in tb balance,
and Madeleine at last, by a superhuman
effort, freed her right hand, which still
held the sharp, pointed knife, and dealt
the robber a stinging blow on the cheek.
For an instant, mad with pain, and biind
and dizzy with a nameless dread, the man
relaxed his hold and fell lack. Madeleine
breathed again hojie rose in her breast 1
herelrength seemed to renew itself for
the contest. The robler dashed the blond
from his check, and made ready for anoth
er spring. .
At this moment a child's sweet voice
broke the awful stillness.
"Mamma! mamma!" cried Adrienne. at
the door of her room.
Madeleine's heart sank. The robber,
seeing his advantage, sprang toward the
bolted door. Madeleine darted in front of
him; with trembling, uplifted hands, and
was again seized in his strong arms.
"The child, you will not hurt my child'."
she shrieked, as he drew a dagger from
his breast, and pointed to tho door.
"Then give me the key!"
Mndul.'ino drew the ky from her pock
et and ofi'ered it to the robber.
"Will you stay where yon are?" he
f-he bowed her head, unable to s:iik,
The man approached the ctiplmi'rd, and
was slowly fitting the keys.
"Mamma! mamma!" cried the childish
voice, in louder tones.
"That child ia too noisy. She will ruin
all," cried the man, striding toward the
Madeleine flung herself before him. He
tried to push her away; but, falling on
hor knees, she caught his hands with
"Oh, no, you will not hurt my baby, my
only one! You cannot be so wicked."
"Then say to her, 'Go to sleep, my child 1
I am with your father.'"
"Oh, no, you cannot mean it!" cried
Madeleine, horror-stricken at the idea.
"Then I will quiet her."
"Stay, stay. May God forgive uie; I
will say it."
"Be quick, then!" he ried, eagerly
. watching piior Madeleine's efforts to form
the lie with her trembling lips. Twice,
thrice she tried to speak; but no sound
came, only a long, gasping sigh.
"Mammal mamma! Oh, mamma, come!"
The cry broke the spell. Madeleine
sprang to her feet, crying, in hoarse,
"'i' to ebip, my fhill. I nm itith your
The little feet were heard pattering 00
the hard floor; then all was still. Made
leine sat, lialf-l'iuntltig, on her low chair,
terrified at the sound of her own words,
an l the robber carefully emptied a deep
picket in his coat, and secured Madeleine's
box in the depths. That done, he again
appiuachod his trembling victim.
"You have lived in the Chateau d'Au
bretot?" "I have," Madoleine faltered.
"There are valuables concealed there.
Which room are they in?"
"I do not know."
"Will vou swear it?"
"How long is it since you lived there?"
"Six ears "
You know w hich room tney were kept
"That has nothing; to do with the place
they may bo in now," said Madeleine, bold
ly. "The chateau is well guarded; you
have everything now worth stealing in
the place. Go away."
"Not till you tell me what 1 want tc
know. Tuey are making preparation
for some great event at the chateau. I
was In the grounds not long ago. There
is a long suite of rooms to the right of the
cnlranco-hall ; .they are hung with pink,
and look as if ready for the comfort of s
rich, invalid lady; perhaps, in -one of
Madoloino dropjied her face in bet
bunds, lest he should read In Iter troinh
ling features what her tongue refused U
"Well, in which?. There is a large
quantity of phite laid away In a closet
which is sunk in the wall. The door
open with spring, the secret el which
I have learned; but you can tell main
which room the closet Is. The family
Jewels, in their ebony cases, are also there,
and they are what I want. Come, you
"Never!" cried Madeleine. "You are a
strong man, and now a rich one, and have
beggared us. Take your plunder, and
"Quick, answer me; the jewel room,
which is it?"
He raised his dagger as he spoke. "
"Have pity, and leave me."
"The room which is it? Tell me!"
"Never! You can kill me; but you
cannot make me betruy my lienefactors."
"Then die for your ohotinacy!" he cried,
plunging the dagger into her heart.
With one low moan, Madeleine fell
backward on the floor. The murderer
stoxlfor a second gazing at his work;
then, with a cry" of horror, he pushed
back the bolt, ownd the door, and rushed
do n the pathway and out of the gate.
The lovely May moon soon threw its
soft, silvery beams over the quiet cottage,
snd, quivering through the windows,
shone on the motionless form, struck
dow n in its full strength and beauty,
Adrienne slumbered through the dark
tours, but the sunlight streaming over
her pillow disturlied her, and she awoke
wit A a start, sitting up and calling "Mam
ma!" with all the strength she had.
There wa no reply. Adrienne burst
intr. tear?, then examined her dress, which
had not been changed for the little w hite
wrapper, lying, as Madeleine had folded
it, near her pillow. The child grew fright
ened, Hnd again tried to open the door,
I ut in vain. Then the cried, and railed
"Mamma!" till bhe wan exhausted.
Suddenly the sound of distant firing
broke on her ears. The cannonade had
commenced, It was a repetition (if the
terrible noise of yesterday. Thoroughly
frightened, Adrienne covered her head in
the blankets, and soblied with terror.
Hours j as. . d, the villagers were all on
the alert tor stragglers who would bring
news from the fr 'iit. Household duties
were dune between animated dircussious
sstotbe nuni'iT engaged, the probable
presence of Marshal de Saxe with tne
troopi, and the chances nf a victory for
the French arri".
Almut nine o'clock Murie Meyer liegan
to wonder what M obdeine wan so busy
about, that she did not join the gossip at
their doors, or in the road. At length,
when ten o'clock struck from numerous
clocks in the neig!ilior!io,l, she could no
longer restrain her curio-ity, but, leaving
her children, and calling to her nearest
neighlsir to join in r. started for the. cot
tage, followed by Annette Decpurd.
The ox.n d"or invited them to enter.
Then the two women utf-red a cy of hor
ror, and hurried to thequiet figure, neilh
er supjHwicg Madeleine to m dead, but
lather fearing that fright L.vl brought on
a fainting tit.
The wound was deep and narrow, hav
ing been ms.de by a stna'!, sharp dagger,
