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

nizance of ?50 to come up for judgment if

*"~ SMOKING IN EUROPE.
American Devotee* of tlio Weed Have ?
Hard Time of It.
The smoking American has a hard tlrno
of it on the continent. In several of tho:
countries, notably in Franco, Spain und j
Italy, tho trade is in the hands <;T the gov- j
eminent, or s-> enormously taxed that it is (

HORSES IN BATTLE.
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. Hew over l lo ir heads and I bo
tumult behind and beforo and around
them caused no in!, rruption to the usual
inst in.-Is of t heir nature.
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.
At the battle of tho Kirb in lTfil. Major
Mucdoiiald, having unhorsed an Kuglish
olliccr, tool; possession of his horse, which
was very beautiful, and immediately
mounted it When tin- Kuglish cavalry
lied, the horse ran away with Iii--, captor,
notwithstanding all bis efforts to restrain
him, nor did the animal slop until it was
at tin- head ol the regiment, of which, ap?
parently, its master was 1 he commander.
n./m-riMis'iigdre' which -.nti'cooinoo ???aw
scnicd when he thus saw himself the vie-,
lim ol' his ambition to possess a line horse,
which ultimately cost him his lib- upon
the scaffold, mav be easily conceived.?
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<

especially lb.- upper notes. Tigers, while
appreciating violin and llute. cannot stand
the harmonium, while the musical seal
shows no ciu. : i.e. on hearing any instru?
ment, not even the bass drum.
I'enUlency.
Persistency is characteristic of all men
who have accomplished anything great.
They may lack in tonic particular, may
have many weaknesses'and eccentricities,
but the quality of persistence is never ab
sent, in a successful man N'o matter what
opposition be meets or what discourage
meats overtake him. be is always persist?
ent. Drudgery cannot disgust him. la
bor cannot, weary him. He will persist,
no mutter what comes or goes, It, is a
part of bis nature lb- could almost as
rasily stop breathing. 1; is not. so much
brilliancy of intellect or fertility of re?
source as persistency of effort, constancy
of purpose, that gives success.? Keystone
