The Point of the Pistol

many persons so unmindful of the symp
toms of on coming disease that it would
almost take that deadly argument to in
duce them to adopt precautionary meas
ures. The best of these is a recourse to
that botanic restorer, Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters. - It vanquishes malaria, rheumat
ism, kidney and bladder trouble, failing
digestion, biliousness and irregularity of
the bowels, and completely fortifies the
system against their further inroads. Its
ingredients aro drawn from nature's
storehouse, consequently it is free from
the objections attaching to many ab
solutely or semi-mineral remedies. For
the delicate, infirm, convalescent and
elderly it is peculiarly beneficial. It well
merits .continuous and systematic use.
Take it at bed time to induce sleep, aud
between meals to stimulate appetite and
digestion. The medical fraternity concur
in indorsing it.

NONA.
Some years ago I passed several weeks
at a fishing village on the coast of Brit
tany. What a hole it was! But how
picturesque! A miserable anchorage,
for ten boats at the most, a single stony
street, which I can compare to nothing
better than a mountain torrent On top
of the bill a church, a veritable gothio
toy, which stood in the middle of a
cemetery from which a magnificent
view of the ocean was obtained. Find
ing myself in the vein for work, I lin
gered in this out of the way corner until
the end of the month of September,
which by a rare chance in rainy Finis
tere, was that year exceptionally mild
and clear.
But one cannot always compose verses
and write, and a walk was my hygiene
and my distraction. My most frequent
promenade was along the beach, having
on my right the bleak and rocky cliffs
and on my left the uncovered stretches
of sand an immense desert of sand left
bare by the outgoing tide. Two or three
times I had exchanged civilities with
some custom house officer going his
rounds, his gun slung over his shoulder.
I was so regular and peaceful a prome
nader that the sea swallows were no
Jonger afraid of me and hopped in front
of me, leaving the print of their star
shaped feet in the wet sand. I walked
six or eight kilometers a day and re
turned home with my pockets filled with
those dainty shells which are found by
burying the hand deep down in the
damp pebbles.
This was my favorite excursion.
However, on the days when a strong
breeze was blowing and the tide was
very high I abandoned the seashore, and
climbing the village street I strolled
along the sandy moor or else I settled
myself with a book on a bonch in a cor
ner of the cemetery, which was shelter
ed by the church tower from the west
end.
It was a lovely spot, conducive to sad
ness and revery. The church tower
stood out against the autumn sky, over
which dark clouds were scurrying.
Crows, whose nests were in the steeple,
flew out with their hoarse cawing, and
the shadow of their large wings glided
over the scattered tombstones, almost
hidden in the grass.
In the evening more than at any oth
er time, the last rays of tho setting sun
bathing the sea as though with blood,
the ragged branches of the skeleton of
an old apple tree silhouetted against the
crimson sky and the deep intense still
ness of the wild home of the dead flood
ed my soul with melancholy.
It was on such an evening as I have
just, described that, wandoring among
the tombs, many of which bore under
the sailor's name this mournful legend,
"Died at sea," I read on a new cross
the following words, which astonished
and puzzled me: "Here reposes Nona
Le Magnet. Died at sea Oct. 26, 1878,
at the age of 19."
Died at sea! A young girl! Women
hardly ever go out in the fishing boats.
How did this happen?
" Well, monsieur, ' ' said a gruff voice
behind me' suddenly, "you are looking
at poor Nona's tomb?" .
I turned around and recognized an old
sailor, with a wooden leg, whose good
graces I had acquired by the aid of a
few glasses of brandy;, which I had giv
en him in the taproom at the inn.
"Yes." I .replied "But I thought
that you;' fishermen never permitted
women to go out with you. I have even
been told : that they bring you misfor
tune." : ... . " .
"And that is the truth," responded
the good man. "Besides, Nona never
went into a boat. Would you like to
know how the poor little one died?
Well, I will tell you.
"First of all, I must tell you that
Pierre, her father, was a topman, like
myself, and an old comrade. At Bour
get, when Admiral La Ronciere raised
his golden helmet on the point of his
saber, and we flung ourselves, hatchet
in hand, on the embattled houses, we
marched elbow to elbow, Pierre and I,
and it was he who received me in his
arms when those cursed Prussians put a
ball in my thigh. That same evening in
the ambulance at the fort Pierre held
my hand to give me courage while the
surgeon amputated my limb, and he
was there at my bedside when the ad
miral brought me my medal. But those
rascally Prussians got the best of us,
and we were sent home. I, with my
wooden leg, was practically helpless.
But Pierre, who yds uninjured, hired
on board a fishing smack. Very soon
afterward his wife died from an inter
mittent fever, leaving him the care of
little Nona, who was going on 10 years
of age.
"Naturally while the widower was at
sea it was I, his comrade, 1, the old
bachelor, who cared for the little- one.
She was a good and pretty child, mon
sieur; courageous and sweet tempered.
We very often went to the rooks at low
tide to gather turtles, shrimps, prawn,
and sometimes we were fortunate enough
to find a lobster. Ah, but we were good
friends I
"This went on for about two years,
Nona had made her first communion,
grown and shot up like a thistle In the
sand. But one day the Amelia, Le
Magnet's boat, was overtaken in a storm
and wrecked. The skipper did not haul
in hia tail soon enough, and the boat
trunk on that reef von can see ovr
there just a littlo more to the 4ai
board. There were four men in the crew
the skipper, two sailors and my poor
Pierre. But the sea only gave up three
of the drowned men and retained my
oomrade. Nona became an orphan. It
goes without saying that I did my best
to replace her father. But the child,
even after the first sorrow passed away,
did not seem to console herself. And do
you know why, monsieur? Because of
an idea all the women around here have.
They believe that a soul must remain in
pain unto the judgment dav unless it re
poses in consecrated groffid. We men
do not believe in all this nonsense when
we know what happens wheu there is a
death on board ship. But Nona could
not be forced to believe other than the
women had taught her and continued to
burn candles at all the pardons in the
neighboring towns for the repose of her
father's souL
"However, in spite of everything,
time is a famous merchant of forgetful
aess, and Nona after a few years ap
peared to me to become somewhat rec
onciled. Besides, her grief had not pre
vented her from growing handsomer and
taking a pride in herself, and it is not
because I loved her like a father, but,
upon my honor, she was the freshest
and prettiest young girl in the parish.
We lived so happily together. We were
not rich, to be sure, but we lived, and
we enjoyed ourselves all the same. I
had my pension and my medal, and
then we used to go together to hunt for
lobsters in the rocks. The trade is a
paying one, and there is only one danger,
that of being overtaken by the tide.
Ah, unfortunately that t was how sho
met her death, poor little one !
"One day when my rheumatism con
fined me to the house, she went fishing
alone. It was just such a day as today,
tho sky clear, the wind high. When the
rock searchers gathered together with
full baskets, they perceived that Nona
failed to respond to their calls. There
was no possible doubt. Great God, she
had been delayed and surrounded by the
rising tide! She had been drowned!
Ah, what a night I passed, monsieur!
At my age, yes, a hard hearted man
like me, I sobbed like a woman. And
the remembrance came to me of the
poor child's belief that to go to heaven
she must be interred in consecrated
ground. Therefore as soon as the tide
went down I went to the shore, and,
with the others, searched for the body.
"And we found poor Nona," con
tinued the old sailor in a trembling
voice. "We found her on a rock covered
with seaweed, where, knowing that she
was going to die, the poor little one had
prepared herself for death. Yes, mon
sieur, she had tied her skirts below the
knees with her fichu, through modesty,
and with her old idea uppermost had
attached herself to the seaweed by her
hair, her beautiful black hair, certain
that she would thus be found and in
terred in consecrated ground. Aud I can
say, I, who know what bravery is, that
there is perhaps not a man bravo enough
to do likewise. "
The old man was silent. By the loot
gleam of the twilight I saw two great
tears rolling down his weather beaten
cheeks. We descended to the village side
by side in silence. I was profoundly
touched by this simple girl's courage,
who, even in the agonies of death, had
retained the modesty of her sex and the
piety of her race, and before me in the
distant immensity, in the solitudes of
the heavens aud the sea, gleamed out
the beacon lights and the stars.
Oh, brave men of the sea ! Oh, noble
Brittany ! From the French of Francois
Coppee For Romance.
Dickens' Characters.
Not even Dickens, I think, found
room for a butcher amid his Babylon of
trades. A bailiff he has and eight sher
iff's officers, half a dozen beadles and
half as many more brokers. The sher
iff's officer is, of course, a familiar
enough figure from the days of our lit
erary drama.
An ingenious American has compiled
a list of Dickens' characters, classified
by callings, and it reads like nothing so
much as a trades directory. There are
architects, auctioneers, bankers, barbers,
boarding house keepers, blacksmiths,
carpenters, ' carriers, chandlers, chem
ists, clerks (a perfect army of them),
coachmen, coal merchants, constables,
corn chandlers,' costumers, detectives,
doctors, doiuestio servants, dry salters,
engineers, engine drivers, fanners, fish
ermen, gamekeepers, grocers, green gro
cers, haberdashers, hopgrowers, jailers
and turnkeys, laborers, lamplighters,
lawyers, law stationers, locksmiths,
manufacturers, merchants, medical stu
dents, money lenders, notaries, hostlers,
pawnbrokers, parish clerks, plasterers,
porters, postmasters, potboys, report
ers, robemakers, saddlers, sailors, sex
tons, shipwrights, stewards, stokers,
stonemasons, sugar bakers, tailors, teach
ers, tobacconists, toymakers and mer
chants, undertakers, watermen, weav
ers, wharfingers, wheelwrights.
The list might be made longer, but
that perhaps is long enough to make
you realize iow amply provided with
trades and tradesmen are the teeming
streets of Dickens' imagination. Mao

Iridium.
Singularly enough, iridium, though a
metal of such comparative rarity, is said
to be a source of no small trouble in the
operations of our mints, on account of
the difficulty experienced there in sepa
rating it from gold bullion. Practically,
as is well known, this metal is utilized
to some extent for making instruments
of delicacy which require to possess the
property of not corroding, and is obtain
ed from iridosmine, a natural alloy of
iridium, osmium, rhodium, platinum
and ruthenium, an extraordinarily white
mixture of rare metals, much of it be
ing found in washing for gold in the
beach sands of Oregon, and it resists the
action of all single acids. In its use for
tipping gold pens, in which it is special
ly serviceable, the grains of it, which
are flat, like gold dust, are picked out
with magnifying glasses. New York

the judicious use of medicine should be
employed. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip

results from its use. It's a remedy spc

A MUD BATH.
A Drummer's Unique Story of the Way It
Was Taken.
Two drummers walked up to the counter
of one of tho hotels last evening.
The night clork stood behind It, mon
arch of all that he didn't survey.
The logs of the bellboys dangled from a
row of chairs in front of the desk.
To the side a renorter. with half shut
eyes, saw scoops in the celling and heard
them in the elevator.
"Say, Pete, scratch out that bath item
from my bill, will youf" said one of the
drummers to the clerk.
. The speaker was a dapper little fellow,
with a colossal gift of gab.
"Couldn't you stand the mud bathf"
asked tho strapping big drummer with
the shaking checks.
"No," was the disgruntled reply.
"Muddy Mississippi river water is tho
healthfulest thing in the world to bathe
in," said the night clerk, mounting his
stool, which stood noar the cashier's desk.
"Pshaw I" exclaimed the little drummer.
"The way I do," said the big traveling
man, "is to let the water stand in the tub
for sovoral hours. The mud settles in the
bottom, and tho water is clear. Then I
batho, but am careful not to create a stir. "
"You ain't In it with my partner."
"No?"
"Why, my partner gets into the muddy
water. It's so muddy you can sharpen a
knifo on it."
"YesP"
"Well, my partner, he gets Into the wa
ter, mud and all, and takes a bath any
how." "He does, eh?" And how does he come
out?"
"Well, my partner," I said, "gets into
the mud nnd water and takes a bath."
"H don't do him any good, " said the
bigger drummer.
"No," replied the other, "not until he
dries"
"And what then?"
"Why, it takes two hours to dust him
off."
The pair of them laughed.
" Your bill's $30," said the clerk.
"My! It was only $35 a moment ago,
mud bath included."
"Yes," returned the clerk, "but $5 is
for lying."
The little drummer passed three tens
through tho window and walked out into
the night. Now Orleans Picayune.

"Miss Mansard," said the head of the
business house to his pretty stenographer,
"have you written those letters to delin
quent debtors, tolling 'cm to pay or get
sued?"
"Yes, sir," said Miss Mansard.
"And that long letter to the Kansas City
branch house?"
"Yes, sir."
"Well," said the head of the firm, "I
have another letter here I'd like to get off
this afternoon, if you please.
The stenographer approached and sat
down by the little wooden leaf which he
drew out from his desk for her.
"The address," said tho head of the
house, commencing to dictate rapidly, "is
