A VOLUNTARY DEATH.
I knew Ixiuis Miruz very well, ia the old
student i;tys when we used to take our
mwila toget her.
Ijouis had the deep eyes, the pale com
plexion and the long and disheveled hair
of all those young men who (Aine to town

He w.i- a writer. I soon found his name
in Miiiii.iy journals and reviews, and then
he '.in to write those short and exquisite
sketches which have made hii reputation.
Thus five years parsed, when I met him
one day in the editor's office of a journal
ior which i worked.
Each of us was as much pleased as the
other at thas meeting again; and after the
first "What! is that you? Is that you?" we
stood facing each other, shking hands
and exposing, in a laucrh of cordial delitrht.
our teeth, which in old times we used to
exercise on the same crust of poverty. He
had not changed. He had not even sacri
ficed his long hair, which he threw back
with the graceful movemett of a horse
who tosses his mane. Only he had the
clear complexion and calm eve of a ron
tented man, and his slim tigu-e was clad in
most fashionable costume.
e won t drift iipurt agi.in, will we?"
said he affectionately, taking me by the
arm; and he led me out in tl e boulevard,
where the April sun gilded the young
leaves 01 the plane trees.
Ah, huppy day! How we exhausted the
Don t you remembers?" 'Do vou re
member the fried eggs which tasted of
straw, and the dreadful rice railk, the mel

Thuse days of hardship for Ixmis were
finished. lie had from afar applauded my
success, as I had watched Lis. But one
thing 1 did not know, and that was that he
bad married a woman whnii he adored,
and that li' had a charming little girl.

1 let myself be persuaded, mid he carried
me to a pretty suburb, where he lived in a
cottage among the trees. Tliere every
thing made you welcome. Xo sooner had
we opened the door of the g:irden than a
young dng friaked about our :'eet.
"Down. Dick! lie will soil vour clothes."
But at the sound of the bell Mrs. Miraz
appeared at the steps with her little daugh
ter in her arms. An imposing and beauti
ful blonde, her well molded figure wrapped
in a blue gown.
"Put on a plate more. I've an old com
rade with me."
And the happy father, keeping his hat
on his head and caressing his little girl,
showed me all over his establishment the
dining room, brightened by light bits of
faience; the sHudy, abounding in books,
with its window opening out on the green
turf, so that a puff of wine" had strewn
with rose leaves the printer's proofs which
were scattered on the table.
"This is only a beginning, you know. It
wasn't so long ago that we were working
for three sous a line."
And while I luxuriated under a blossom
ing Judas tree which I saw in the garden,
Miraz, at ease in his home, had slipped
into his working vest, put oi his slippers,
and. lying on his sofa, caught little Helen
in his arms to toss her in tl e air "Uoup
la! Houp la!"
I do not remember ever to have had a
more perfect impression of contentment.
We dined pleasantly two good courses,
that was all; a dinner without pretense,
where we served ourselves with the pepper
The charming wife presided with her
bright smile, having her child by her side
in a high chair. She spoke but little, but
her sweet and intelligent attention fol
lowed our light and paradoxical chat, the
good humored fooling of men of letters,
and at the dessert she took a rose from the
bouquet which ornamented the table and
placed it in her hair near her ear with a
supreme grace. She was indeed that love
ly and silent friend whom a dreamer re
quires. We took our coffee in the study they
intended to furnish the sa'on very soon
with the price of a story to be published
by Levy; then, as the evening was cool, a
fire of bticks and twigs was built, and
while we smoked, Miraz and I, recalling
old memories, the mistress of the house
holding on her knees litth: Helen, now
ready for bed, made her repeat "Our Fath
er" and "Hail Mary," which the little one
lisped, rubbing her little feet together be
fore the warm flame.
We saw each other again, often at first,
then less frequently, the difficult and com
plicated life of literary labor taking ua
each his own way. So the years passed.
We met, shook hands. "Everything go
ing well?" "Splendidly." And that was
all. Then, later, I found the name of
Lotus Miraz but rarely in the journals
and periodicals. "Happy m;in; he is rest
ing." I said to myself, remembering that
he was spoken of as having made a small
fortune. Finally, last autu am, I learned
that he was seriously ill.
I hurried to see him. He still lived at
the pretty suburb; but on this somber day
of the last of November the little house
seemed cold, and looked naked among the
leafless trees. It seemed to me shrunken
and diminished, like everything that we
have not seen for a long time.
The dog was probably dead, for his bark

when I passed the little gate and entered
the garden, all strewn with dead leaves
where the night's frost hac. withered the
It was not his wife she was absent it
was Helen who received mi Helen, who J
had grown to be a great girl of 14, with an
awkward manner. She opexied for me the
door of her father's study, iind brusquely
lifting her great black eyelashes turned
on me a timid and distressed glance. I
I found Miraz huddled in an easy chair
in the corner of the fireplace, wrapped in a
sort of bedgown, with gray locks streak
ing his long hair, and by th cold, clammy
hand which he reached tow urd me, by the
pallid face whice he turned upon me, I j
knew that he was lost. Horrible! I found in
my unhappy comrade that worn and ruined
look which used to striko us formerly
among the poor Poles we used to see.
"Ah, well, old man, things are not going
"Deucedly bad, my boy," he answered.
with a heartbreaking smile. "1 am going
out stupidly with consumption, as they do
ia the fifth act, you know, when the ven
erable doctor, with a head like Beranger,
feels the first walking gentleman's pulse,
and lifts his eyes toward heaven, saying,
'The death struggle approaches!' Only
the difference is that with me it continues;
it will not conclude the death straggle.
Smoke away; that doesn't disturb me," he
added, seeing me put my cigar one side,
his cough sounding like a death rattle.
I tried to find encouraging words. I
talked with him, holding him by the Land
and patting him affectionately on the
shoulder, but my voice had in my own
ears tin; empty hollowness of deceit, and
Miraz, looking at me, seemed to pity my
I was .v.i:cut.
''L:jo:;,v .said he. puintir..-' to his table;
"s; my work bencii. lr six months I
have hoi been u'ole U write."
I made a new attempt to revive him.
Die, at his age! Nonsense! lie wasn't
taking care of himself, lie must pass the
winter in the south; drink a good draught
of sunlight. lie could. He was easy in
his money matters.
But he stop;ted nie, putting his hand on
"Listen," he said gravely. "We have
seen each other seldom, but you are my
oldest, perhajis my best friend. You have
proved me Hn in hand. Well, I am going
to tell you something in confidence for
you to keep to yourself unless it may serve
on aoTue occasion to discourage the young
literary aspirants who bring their manu
scripts to you always a praiseworthy ac
tiou. " Yes, I have been successful. Yes, I have
leeu paid a franc a line. Yes, I have made
money, and there in that drawer are a cer
tain numlHT of yellow, green and orange
papers from which a coupon is clipped
every six months, and which represent t-SOO
of income. It is rare in our profession, and
to gain that poor hoard I have beeu obliged
to imitate the unsociable virtues of a miser,
know how to deny a jewel to my wife, a
dreads to my daughter. But at last I have
that money. And 1 often said to myself, if
I should die their bread is assured, and here
is a licile marriage portion for Helen! And
1 was content 1 was proud! for I know
them, the stories of our widows and our
orphans, the fourpenny help of the govern
ment, the tobacco shops for 000 francs in the
province, and, if the daughter is intelligent
and pretty like mine, the dramatic author,
an old friend of the father, who advises her
to enter the conservatory of acting, and
who makes of her mercy of God! that
shall never lie.
"But for all that, my boy, it is necessary
that I should not linger. Sickuess is ex
pensive, and already it has been necessary
to sell one or two bonds from that drawer.
To seek the sunlight, as you suggest, to
biLsk like a lizard in the tropics, one more
bond must go, and there would not be
enough to hut to the end if I should wait
for seveu or eujht years more, now that 1
can no longer write. Happily there is
nothing to fear. But what 1 have suffered
since I have been incapable of writing, and
have felt my hoard of gold shrink and
diminish in my baud like the 'Magic
Skin' of lial.ac, is frightful. Now you
understand me, do you not? and you will
no longer bid me take care of myself. No;
if you still pray to God, ask him to send
nie speedily to the undertaker's."
Fifteen days later some thirty of us fol
lowed the hearse which carried Louis
Miraz to the cemetery. It had snowed the
day before, and Dr. Arnold, the old fre
quenter of painters' studios, the friend and
physician of the dead man, walking behind
me, called in his brusque voice:
"Very commonplace, but always terri
ble the contrast; a burial iu the snow
black on white. The funeral of the poor.
At last we came to the edge of the grave.
The place and the time were sad. Under a
cloudy sky the little yew trees, swayed by
the wind, threw down their burdens of
melted snow. The bystanders had formed
u circle, and were watching the grave dig
gers, who were lowering the coffin by
Near a cross bearer, whose short surplice
permitted the bottom of his trousers to be
seen, the priest waited with a finger in his
Iwok, and, having grasped the rim of his
hat uuder his left arm, the orator already
held in his black gloved baud the funeral
oration, hastily patched up by the aid of a
comrade over a coupie of glasses at the
corner of a cafe table.
Suddenly, as the priest bexan his Latin
prayers. Dr. Arnold seized me by the arm
and whispered in my ear:
"You know that he killed himself?"
I looked at him with astonishment. But
he pointed to the group in black, composed
of the pretty widow aud her daughter.who
were sobbing under their long veils and
clasping each other ia a tragic embrace,
and he lidded:
"For them. Yes, for six months he threw
all his medicines in the lire, and designed
ly committed all sorts of imprudences. He
confessed it to me before his death. I had
not understood it ut all I, who had ex
pected to prolong his life at least three
years by creosote. At last the other night,
when it was freezing cold, he left his win
dow open, as if by forgetfulness, and was
taken with bleeding at the lungs. Yes,
that he might leave bread for those two
women. The cure does not dream that he
is blessing a suicide.
