count's money. Not only that; tbe
count, bel?g Informed of Mme. De
nier'? condition, bad sent his own phy
sician, who had trent, d her, and ?ho
bad been restored to heall h.
The memory of this benefaction lu n
twinkling produced ita great a revolu
tion In the heart of Henri Denier as
was being wrought in the government
of France. He resolved that If he
could save his beiiefuctor by giving bis
own life he would do so. Hui bis self
control wns perfect. Ile ?nt appnrently
unmoved even under the reproachful
glance of the count ns the latter passed
out of the room between two soldiers.
Then the work of condemnation was j,
Denier after having been some time
in Parla, noting the trend the revolu
tion waa taking, bad gone to bis home
lu disguise for a doy aud/ left u cipher
code with his wife by which be could
communicate with ber without any
one except himself or her knowing
what he wrote ber.. Ono morning a
girl about fifteen years old uppcured
at Mme. Denier's door and bandea her
n blt of paper on which there was writ
"Who is this from?" asked Mme.
"Head it." wns the girl's only reply.
Mme. Denier, seeing a jumble of
words, remembered her elidier code, | (
which she took from its hiding place
and interpreted the message:
Count de Usl* condemn*). Bend wine.
The recipient read much blore than
was expressed. ?he knew that her If
husband meant thr.t xhe was to limit?
some person or pe?ena tu conic to ? '
Paris and bein him sure the mun win?
hod saved ber when she had been iii.
Hut what did the words "Pend wine"
She took the message to the count
ess, whom she fourni prostrated nt
news of her husband's arrear, which
she had already received. Together
they interpreted the "Send wine" to
mean this: Denier bad Just before the
revolution set himself up UH a wine

to Paris and returning the , casks
empty. They were to send som? casks
of wine tb bis shop. What this would
have to do with the count's condemna
tion the women could not del ermine.
Not two'hours after tho receipt of
to? uiiK?nRc u mari nnmeri Francois, a
servant In tho clint en ti who attended '
his master, loaded several casks of
wine on n cart nnd started for Paris. 1
When they rv'iched Denier's shop the 1
girl who bad accompanied Francois .
went for Denier, but he tl ld not leave .
his -official duties till j dark'. Un ar
rival at. his ?hop he waa pleased to
ace Francois and told him that on hui '
coolness-nnd courage tbe -count's life
depended. ' He" was to' remain that 1
night In the shop and return the next ?
morning, ostensibly to tbe chateau,
but once bovine-passed the walls of j
Paris, after proceeding some distance j
in that direction, ho was to diverge on |
a read to tho Belgian border. I j
Denier, hnVlug been one of tho most i
radical of tho revolutionists, wan thor- i
oughly trusted by them.-' Indeed, ho \

Parla be sent a small squad of aol- ]
uit.-rs *? a co?-porat to the cui?- i
dergerle prison with an order to send <
Citizen de Lisle to him since bis test!- <
mony waa needed to denounce an ene
my of France Tbe count was sent to
"the Judge," who was in tl|e room
where he sent persons to the gu.lio-1
tine. Announcing that, he would in
terrogate the prisoner privately, be or? I i
dared the soldiers to withdraw. I <
No sound having been heard for j
some time from within, the corporal
rapped at tho door. There was no an- '
ewer. The door was opened, sud thal
room we* found to be empty. A win- j <
dow had been left open. The eorpor?!
had nothing to do but go back to the
prison and report the" circumstance.
A commotion wa* arlrr?d up by the
disappearance of tho Indee and his1
prisoner, who on gaining the street j
had made straight for Denier's shep. I
where Denier got Into one empty wine j. i
cask and the count into nn?ther, oft
er which Francois put the heads on
the casks, lt was expected flint the
shop would toe searched, so Francois] j
placed tbe casks on bia cart and drove j
it away, moving about the streets till *
sunrise, when he turned lils course to i
a gate in the wall on the north side
of the city. Sine* lt .???? tb? *M?>^ ?g-te
