at such times, through the valuable expe
rience of some one who has been benefitted

of the malarial poison, and a means of for

TEE SANCTITY OF LOYE.
The Abbe Marignan, as soldier of the
church, bore his fighting title well. He
was a tall, thin prierft, very fanatical, of
an ecstatio but upright soul. All his be
liefs were fixed without ever a wavering.
Ho thought that he penetrated the de
signs, the wishes, the intentions of the
Everything in nature seemed to him
created with an absolute and admirable
logic. The "wherefore" and the "be
cause" were always balanced. The dawns
were made to render glad your waking,
tho days to ripen the harvest, the rains
to water them, the evenings to prepare
for sleeping, and the nights dark for
The four seasons corresponded perfect

him the suspicion could never have come
that nature has no intentions, and that
all which lives has bent itself, on the
contrary, to tho hard conditions of differ
ent periods, of climates and of matter.
Only he did hato women; ho hated
them unconscionably, and ho despised
them by instinct. Ho often repeated
the words of his Master, "Woman, what
have I to do with thee?" and he added,
"One would almost say that God him
self was ill pleased with that particular
work of his hands." Woman was the
temptress who had ensnared the first
man; she was the being which is feeble,
dangerous, mysteriously troubling. And
oven more than her weak body he hated
her loving soul.
He had often felf ' omen's tenderness
attach itself to him, and though he knew
himself to bo unassailable ho grow ex
asperated at the need of loving which
jjuivered always in their hearts.
Woman, to his mind, had only been
created to tempt man and to prove liim.
You should not approach her Avithout
these precautions for defense which you
would take, and those fears which yon
would cherish, near a trap. She was,
indeed, just like a trap, with her arms
extended and her lips open toward a

treated them harshly notwithstanding,
because, ever living at the bottom of
their chained up hearts, of their chast
ened hearts, he perceived that ejernal
tenderness which constantly went out to
him although he was a priest.
He was conscious of it in their looks,
more moist with piety than the looks of
monks; in their ecstacies, in their trans
ports of love, which angered him because
it was women's love; and ho was also
conscious of it, of that accursed tender
ness of their voices when they spoke to
him, in their lowered eyes, and in tho
meekness of their teais when ho reproved
And he shook his cassock on issuing
from the doors of the convent, and he
went off with long strides, as though he
had fled before some danger.
He had a niece who lived with her
mother in a littlo houso near by. He
was bent on making her a sister of char
ity. She was pretty, and hairbrained, and
a groat tease. When the abbe sermon
ized 6ho langhod, when he was angry at
her she lrissed him vehemently, press
ing him to her heart, Avhilo he would
seek involuntarily to free himself from
this embrace, which, notwithstanding,
mado him taste a certain sweet joy,
awaking deep within him that sensation
of fatherhood which slumbers in eveiy
Often he talked to her of God, of his
God, walking beside her along tho foot
paths through tho fields. She hardly
listened, and looked at the sky. the grass,
tho flowers, with a joy of living which
could bo secu in her eyes. Sometimes
she rushed forward to catch some flying
creature, and. bringing it back, would
cry: "Look, my uncle, how pretty it is!
I should like to kiss it."' And this ne
cessity to "kiss flies" or hlao berries
worried, irritated and revolted the priest,
who saw even in that tho ineradicablo
tenderness which ever springs at tho
hearts of women.
And now one day the sacristan's wife,
who kept house for tho Abbo Marignan,
told him very cautiously that his niece
had a lover.
He experienced a dreadful emotion,
and he stood choked with the soap all
over bis face, being in the act of shaving.
When he found himself able to think
and speak onco more he cried. "It is not
truo; you aro lying, Melanie!'
But the peasant woman put her hand,
on her heart: "May our Lord judge me if
I am lying. Monsieur le Cure. I tell you
she goes to him every evening as soon
as your sister is in bed. They meet
each other beside the river. You have
only to get there between 10 o'clock and
midnight, and see for yourself."
Ho ceased scratching his chin, and he
commenced to walk the room violently,
as he always did in his hours of gravest
thought. When he tried to begin his
shaving again he cut himself three
times from nose to ear.
All day longhe remained silent, swollen
with anger and rage. To his prifi&ly zeal
against tin lnichty power of love was
added the moral indignation of a father,
of a teacher, of a keeper of souls, who
has been deceived, robbed, played "with
by a child. Ho had that egotistical chok
ing sensation such as parents feel when
their daughter announces that she has
chosen a husband without them and in
spite of their a4vice.
After his dinner he tried to read a lit
tle, but he could not bring himself so far,
and he grew angrier and angrier. When
it struck 10 he took his cane, a formi
dable oaken club which he alwayscamed
when he bad to go out at night to visit
the sick, and he smilingly regarded the
enormous cudgel, holding it in his solid
countryman's fist and cutting threaten
ing cirt-L3 with J t in tha tur Thau, sud
denly he raised it, and grinding nis teeth
he Drought it down upon a chair, the
back of which, split in two, fell heavily
to the ground.
He opened his door to go out, but stop

such a splendor of moonlight as you

In his little garden, quite bathed with
the soft brilliance, his fruit trees, all
arow, were outlining in shadow upon
the walk, their slender limbs of wood
scarce clothed by verdure, while the
giant honeysuckle climbing on the house
wall exhaled delicious, sugared breaths,
and seemed to cans to hover through
the warm, clear night a perfumed soul.
He began to breathe deep, drinking
tho air as drunkards drink their wine,
and he walked slowly, being ravished,
astounded and almost oblivious of his
As soon as he came into the open coun
try he stopped to contemplate tho whole
plain, so inundated by this caressing
radiance, so drowned in the tender and
languishing charm of the sereno nights.
At every instant the frogs threw into
space their short metallic notes, and the
distant nightingales mingled with tho
seduction of the moonlight that fitful
music of theirs which brings no thoughts
but dreams,that light .and vibrant melody
of theirs which is composed of kisses.
The abbe continued his course, his
courage failing, he knew not why. He
felt, as it were, enfeebled, and suddenly
exhausted; ho had a great desire to sit
down, to pause here, to praise God in all
Down there, following tho bends of
tho littlo rivor, wound a great line of
poplars. On and about tho banks,
wrapping all the tortuous watercourse
with a land of light, transparent
wadding, hung suspended a fine mist, a
white vapor which the moon rays crossed
and silvered, and caused to gleam.
The priest paused, yet again penetrat
ed to the bottom of bis soul by a strong
and growing emotion.
And a doubt, a vague uneasiness,
seized on him; ho perceived that one of
those questions which ho sometimes put
to himself was now being born.
Why had God done this? Sinco the
night is destined for sleep, for uncon
eciousness, for repose, for forgetfulness
of everything, why, then, mako it moro
charming than the day, sweeter than
the dawns and the sunsets? And this
slow seductive star, moro poetical than
the Bun, and so discreet tliat it seems de
signed to light up things too delicate,
too mysterious, for the great luminary
why was it come to brighten all the
Why did not the cleverest of all song

why did ho set himself to singing in the
vaguely troubling dark?
Why this half veil over the world?
Why these quiverings of the heart, this
emotion of tho soul, this languor of tho
Why this display of seductions which
mankind never sees, being asleep in bed?
For whom was intended this sublimo
Epectaole, this flood of poetry poured
from heaven to earth?
And tho abbo did not understand at
But now, see, down there along tho
edge of tho field appeared two shadows

like a divine frame mado expressly for
this. They seemed, these two, like ono
being, tho being for whom was destined
this calm and silent night; and they
came up toward tho priest like a living
answer, tho answer vouchsafed by his
master to his question.
He stood stock still, quite overwhelm
ed and with a beating heart. And ho
thought to seo hero some Biblo story
like the loves of Ruth and Boas, the ac

Through his head began to hum tho

And he said to himself, "God perhaps
has made such nights as this to clothe
with the ideal the loves of men."
He withdrew before this couple, who
went over arm in arm. For all that it
was really his niece; but now he asked
himself if ho was not about to disobey
God. And does not God indeed permit
love, since he surrounds it visibly with
splendor such as this?
And ho flod in amaze, almost ashamed,

Victoria Doesn't Like Smoking.
Queen Victoria has an intense horror
of smoking, and it is strictly prohibited
at Windsor castle, at Balmoral and at
Osborne. This indeed is one of the main
reasons why the visits of the Prince of
Wales to his august mother are bo brief,
and so few and far between, for the heir
apparent to the English throne is so little
accustomed to self denial and so fond of
smoking that he is scarcely ever to be
seen for an hour together without a cigar
or cigarette between his lips. Of his sis
ters only the Princess Louise, march
ioness of Lome, emokes, but both his
wife and his daughters, especially Prin
cess Maud, are accustomed to indulge in
a cigarette when in their morning room
at Sandringham or Marlborough house,
with Miss Bessie Knollvs. Many, in
fact most of the ladies of France, ench
as the Duchesses de Mouchy, dela Roche-foncauld-Doudearrille
d'Czes and de
Maille, are fond of cigarettes, the fash
ion having been set in France some five-and-thirry
years ago by Empress Eu

DOGS "GO THERE TO DIE.
Scares of Ailing Cnlne Seem Attracted
to an Old Hoajio.
The mystery surrounding the conduct
of the scores of dogs' that have crawlod
under the eaves of houses Nbs. 2 and 3
on City Hall avenue is stall the absorb
ing topio around the new city hall.
All efforts to fathom tho mysterious
attractions have been unavailing. The
fact remains, however, tiiat under these
two houses scores of dogs havo crawled
and died. Not ordinary dogs, but sick
dogs; dogB that were on the verge of
death. Twenty-six carcasses have been
removed from beneath the old houses al
ready, including dogs of all degrees,
from the beautiful and intelligent set
ter to the measly little terrier who yelped
his farewell to earth in the presence of
scores of his dead and better kind.
Whence come these dogs? Why do
they go there to die in such large num
bers, and why do they select this par
ticular spot? These are the questions of
interest to the number of visitors who
come to see them. The strange part of
the story is that dogs have been recog
nized that came to the place from some
far distant part of the city, ostensibly
for the purpose of dying, as they were
seen to Btagger through tho yard, dis
appear and be seen no more until their
moldering remains were pulled out
from under the, house.
From time to time complaints have
been made at the health office of tho
stench arising from the place, and Al
pers, the dead dog man, has been noti
fied and requested to remove thorn. On
one occasion ho removed twelve in one
batch. Newfoundlands, shepherd dogs,
bulldogs, curs and even one or two
fancy strains of dogs were discovered to
have come to this strangely selected spot
to foregather with their kin. After this
Alpers refused to proceed further in the
matter, declaring that he did not have
to remove the dogs dying upon private
premises, and so tho accumulation has
gone on until the condition is intolerable.
A search was instituted by Dr. Furlong,
of the health office, and it was discovered
that onoe moro tho place was filled with
dogs newly dead.
The search resulted in the announce
ment that the number of dogs that had
died under those walls oould not be as
certained until the floors were taken up.
A feature that seems almost supernat
ural is the intelligence that character
izes the dogs' death. Every new.animal
as he comes to thsi)laoerto die crawls
back as far as he can 'get beneath the
house and gete close against the last dog
that died, as if to make room for tho
next that comes; a fact that Super
visor Barry pronounced the most touch
ingly pathetic unselfishness he had ever
Tho scores of dogs that have died have
como without noise, as testified by the
lady of the house, and died without
noise. They come almost at the moment
of death, crawl beneath the houso and
join tho majority without a whimper.
What the mysterious attraction is is
something beyond human knowledge
and may never bo fathomed. No ono
seems to dare to advance a theory on
the eerie subject, and yet every one was
willing to admit that there really seemed
to be an understanding or death compact
between the dogs, but how, when or
where made, if at all, seemed to be sim
ply a controversion of all of nature's
known laws. San Francisco Examiner.
