WHITE IN A NIGHT. I
"Send Felke to ino at once, "said Mine. Perrot. "I have been searching for Felice ever since I received inadame's directions. I do not think that she can bo in the house. Ihdeed if inadume will permit me. I think I can guess. Felice has been in the habit of going out of evenings Felice has a lover." '?Indeed!'' said Mine. Perrot. "Well, pretty girls generally hove beaux. Only she should not forgot her duties." ?'If mudaiue will permit, the servants say that this beau of Felice's is a gentle- ' man, not a man of her own position, and that?but no matter: it is none of my business. Only young girls were more prudent in my days." "1 will speak to Felice." said madamo.. ' "It was right of you to mention this." ' Thou site sank back into her chair and waited a little longer. Sho was not a nervous person, and yet a gloom and dread for which site hud no words began to set I tie down upon her. She shuddered, sho | grow cold, site dared not look ln-hind her, j site fancied strange voices borne to her on i tho breeze that lifted t-liecurtaius over the j open windows. In the salon M. Perrot and some old : friends drank wine and played ecurto. I She would.have gone to them had she I dared, but she dreaded the long corridor too much, .-the absolutely did not dare to open the door. Some one who knew the value of the jewels she had worn t hat day might have followed her home. The idea of the black visaged mllian was so terribly vivid that. Mine. Perrot actually gave a little scream, and, seizing the small silver baud I.eM which stood upon the table near her, rang it violent ly. It was in this way that she was wont to summon I'clice from her own little room hard by. The other servants only answer? ed the bell which communicated willi tho kitchen, but Mine. Perrot had now be? come too nervous to cross the room to touch it. She rang the little silver bell ami looked over her shoulder toward the door, imping that some one had heard. The door open? ed, and Felice entered slowly. Her face was very pale, her large, dark eyes were darker than- ever. Sho made her little courtesy and stood lief ore Mine. Perrot. w ith her hands folded together. "Von have been a long while in com? ing," said Mine. Perrot. "1 have waited for you two hours. This must never hap? pen again." ''No, madamo; never again." "See that, it does not. My dressing gown, Felice." The girl already held it in her hands. Usually she was brisk and active in her movements. Today sho was strangely slow* and solemn'. "If it was my shroud, you could not be graver over it," cried Mine. Perrot. "There, comb my hair and go. Von are too frightfully solemn to endure any lon? ger." "It ismndumc's will that I should comb her hair?" she said. "Have you gone crazy, Felice? I lave you not done it every night lor a year?" "If it is mtidamc's will, I must do it," said Felice in tho same strange way, and she stepped behind the lady's chair. Slowly the great masses of golden (loss fell about the lady's shoulders. Softly the maid gathered them under her bonds and began to puss the comb through them. As she did so Mine. Perrot experienced such a shock as one receives from an elec? tric battery. "AVhat a strange feeling!" she cried. Again the comb entered her hair. Again she experienced that singular neu aal ion. she cried, starting to her feet. "What, are you doing to me? Vou"? But there was no one there. Tho door had not opened or shut. Felice had been Standing behind her the instant before Now she was gone. Tho dread of she knew not what was heavier than before She could neither scream nor run. All that sho could do was to drag herself to bed and draw the coverlets over her head. Whether she fainted or lost, con sciousness she never knew. It was late when sho awoke. The bonds of the alabaster clock upon the mantel piece pointed to the hour of 10, but instead of tho usual domestic rounds of the hour she was conscious of a strange bustle and confusion, and she thought she heard the name Felice repeated in tones of horror moro than once. Why did they not. cuine to her and tell her? In a moment more tho door opened and M Perrot, wrapped in his quilted dress? ing gown, came in. Iiis face was very grave. "You're nwalic, my love?" he asked. "Yes, I am awake. What has hap? pened?" "Your maid, Felice, is dead. Sho has taken poison. Her mother, n washerwom? an, lives in the Hue St. t'yr. Sho went thero yesterday afternoon, ami this morn Ing was found dead in bed. The lumen tatiuns of the poor woman awakened me. She had brought a note which Felice had left for you. Shall I read it?" "Yes, nion ami," said Mine. Perrot, trembling violently. ''Adored madamo," lit; began, "1 shall never dress that beautiful hair again. 1 knew It when I arranged it an hour ago. When you return bona-, Felice will be dead. Sho is too miserable to live. Ah, madamo, when you touch that little bell 1 have obeyed so long it scums to mo that my spirit must hear it and come to you again!" "Henri!" cried Mine. Perrot, with a scream. "Oh, Henri, this is terrible! Fe? lice undressed my hair herself at midnight ?Felice, who was then dead! Come to me! Let me touch you! Save me from this great terror that is gathering about me!" M. Perrot flow to his wife's side. Tho light from tiie open window fi ll across the pillow and over the beautiful head that lay upon it. lie stared at it for a moment. "Muli Dien, my child," he cried, amazed and horrified, "what lias hap? pened? Your hair has turned white!" And this is how Mine. Perrot's hair turned white at the age of 20.?Exchange. Mauslaugliter In Football. In an English case Mr. Justice Hawkins recently said respecting manslaughter In football that it might be useful to remind those who played this rough anil danger? ous game that if u man caused violence, whether willful or through gross negli? gence, to another in such a way as to pro? duce death he would be responsible for the fatal issue and that if he willfully caused grievous bodily harm to another and thereby caused his death his crime would bo not manslaughter, but murder. It appears from "Law Notes," London, that the accused was convicted in this tase, but allowed to go on his own recog? nizance of ?50 to come up for judgment if sailed upon to do so.?Case and Comment .An Kasy Trick.

How They Act When Wounded or Left Without Their Hilter?. When horses are hit in battle, they stop tremble in every muscle and groan deeply while their eyes show w ild astonishment During the battle of Waterloo some of the horses, as they lay on the ground, having recovered from tiie llrst agony of their wounds, fell to eating the grass about them, thus surrounding themselves with a circle of ban* ground, the limited extent of which showed their weakness Olh.-rs of these interesting animals were observed quietly grazing in the middle of the Held between the two hostile lines, their riders having been shot off their backs, while the halls that.

It whs also observed thai when a charge of cavalry went past, near to any of tin: stray horses mentioned, they would set oil, form themselves in the rear of their mounted companions, ami, though without rider-, gallop strenuously along with the rest, not slopping nor Hindling when the fatal shock with He- enemy took place.

New Vork Tribune Modern Chivalry. Sir Walter Raleigh's cloak has been a symbol of chivalry for manj years, but the little street boy's cap*in the following story, from The Sunday Magazine, do serves km equally honorable place: The bust story I know of an Kdinburgh street boy was iuld me by a lady who wit? nessed flic incident. There was a Christ mas treat given to poor children at a mis? sion hall, and hundred-, of little ones were assembled at the doors in advance of the hour of ndmit.ini.ee, many of them hare foul. Among the number was a sweet faced little girl, w ho seemed less hardened than most to tho cold, for she shivered ill her poor jacket, and danced from one foot to the othur on the c.l.l. bard --miles. A boy not much older watched this performanco for a few minutes and then, with asudden impulse of protection, took ..If his cap, put it down heroic her ami said: " Ye maun stand on that.' Animals and Music. Tarantulas do not dance to tho sound of the violin, but. let tin- people they bite do the dancing. Scorpions, however, enjoy fiddling, according to The Quarterly Re view, and lizards go crazy for music of any kind. As for serpent.-, the boa conl< strictor ami python arc senseless to mdk. oily, but the cobra is fascinated by tfi Hutu and still more by the fiddle, I'nlA bears enjoy the violin, so d.. ostriches Wolves will stop in tho chase In listen loa cornet.
