Louise Duperrier was eighteen years , of age ; she danced gracefully, sang agree ably and played the piano like the rest of the world i her family thought it time for her to marry. Among the young men that visited at .'their house was Edouard Larernay, who .-could make a graceful bow, turn a com pliment well, respect the rules of a qua ". drille, arid decipher at first glance a new ( romance ; he was in his twenty-sixth year, and just been admitted to the bar, and was altogether a perfectly suitable hus- , band... .... t Madame Duperrier assumed one day a very grave air to announce to her daugh ter that she must prepare to become Ma dame Lavernay, the Lavernay and Du perrier families have come to an agree ment on the reciprocal advantages of a . marriage between Edouard and Louise. Out of respect to that wise custom which proscribes that before the indissoluble knot is tied a young couple should have time ..to study each others character, it was re solved to allow a reasonable latitude to (this mutual investigation, and the signa ture of the contract of marriage was de ferred for a fortnight. As Edouard during this time was authorized to visit his be . irothed every day, Madame Duperrier thought it her duty to give some instruc tions to her daughter, which might be summed up thus : My child, no caprices, no inequalities of temper, and, above all, no negligences in your toilette. Your lover, at whatever moment he may present himself, must find you gentle, smiling and perfectly well dressed ; marriage is a battle to be gained; be always under arms." The task was not difficult. Edouard, delighted at a marriage which secured to him two things generally envied, a fine dowry and a pretty wife, took care to pre sent himself in full toilette, morally as , well as physically. Could Louise do oth erwise than amiable to a lover always gracious, attentive, submissive ? v The fortnight of trial passed in a per fectly satisfactory manner on both sides ; . the contract was signed, and the young . cocp src7econUucted ITi great pomp be . fore te mayor and the cure. "We have shown Edouard and Louise in their character of betrothed lovers, let us look at them now as husband and wife. Contrary to the assertions of astrono mers, who pretend, that every moon is composed of four quarters, the honeymoon of the new couple was not prolonged be yond the first.. They had yet in their cars the thousand voices which wished , 'them an unalterable felicity, when the . first cloud darkened their horizon ; yet it was a day which seemed made for happi ness ; the skies were blue, the sun re spleudant. "No more visits to make, thank Hea ven V said Edouard; "this a lovely day, which wc can spend as we like." "And we shall have a delightful prom enade shall we not ?" "With all my heart ; get ready as soon as possible." "You need not fear. I shall not make you wait." "What a pleasure," said Edouard, rub bing his hands joyfully, "to get away for a little while from this confused, noisy Taris, and breathe the pure air of the country." "What did you say, my friend?" "I said that in the month of July, and in weather like this, the country must be in all its splendor." "O ! the country is very dismal." "Do you think so ? nothing can be gay er; woods, meadows, bowers, rivulets, birds twittering in the trees." "And not a voice to say as we pass along: "What a handsome couple !" I confess, I prefer the boulevards." 'OhI the boulevards do you think them pleasant?" "Chat-rain"" "Two rows of trees between two rows of houses." "Bat what houses! They are palaces." "A pell-mell of carriages and people crossing and hitting each other." "An agreeable variety Df shops and toilettes," "There is no noise or movement in the country, I must allow, only the silence of the desert and the immobility of the tomb. Come now, confess your defeat with good grace ; the country is death, Paris life. We will have a walk on the boule vard." '"- "Kot at all. I have an insurmountable antipathy to the boulevards. We will go to the country." "L this an order ?' " "A request, and your are too good not to yield," . "To yield to tyranny, however masked, is not goodness, but weakness.".' "I am curious to know who the tyrant is.'" - 4iYou, sir, who require me to sacrifice my taste to yours." "It is rather you, madame, who pay no regard to my wishes, and wish to subject me to your caprices." . .. . "I assure.you that I am not at all dis posed to accept the part of a victim." "And I certainly shall not consent ito be yours." - Edouard and Louise fb'oked'ai' ''gaeh other for a momerft,"thefa, wilbjjtiioij mntuameiiance, tney seated themselves, Louise at her piano, and Edouard on a sofa. He took a book and began to read with imperturbable calmness. The fin gers of Louise remained immovable upon the keys, but the agitation of her little feet beating a tattoo upon the floor showed that her nerves were more irritable than those of her husband. Edouard at length made a movement of impatience. "This reading interests me, madame ; I should like to pursue it uninterrupted. This music " "Does it disturb you ? I am exceed ingly sorry, but it is necessary to continue my musical studies." "Without touching the keys. A singu lar method." "I am in despair that it does not please you. .. . . The tattoo became more animated. "I must withdraw my study," said Ed ouard at length. "I would not have the presumption to place any obstacle in your way." Edouard rose ; Louise, as he was about to quit the room, said "If however, you should decide " "To accompany you to the boulevard? impossible, madame." As he was crossing the threshold of the door, he turned : " If, on reflection, you should con clude " "To follow you to the country ? Nev er, sir." Edouard marched out with all the gravity of an aspirant to the tnagis- iiRUJT "It is a declaration of wai-," said Louise, indignantly. "I accept it." From this time, matters became worse and worse every diy. Edouard and Louise, more and more irritated against each other, had no other care or occupa tion to invent means of annoyance. In their rare conversation, irony and epi gram were ever on their lips. Happiness avid peace seemed forever banished from the household fofever. Louise went one day to visit a friend ; it was raining, and while the ladies were talking of the fashions ancfthe theatre, the master of the house entered followed by a Newfoundland dog, who was both wet and muddy. Happy to find himself under shelter, the animal gave a shake which distributed around him a dew of a very doubtful purity, then began to leap upon the silk dresses of his mistress and Louise, leaving the prints of his paws at every bound ; at last he stretched himself out on a divan of sky-blue velvet, between two cushions whose embroidery he gnaw ed by way of amusement. On her re turn, Louise was imprudent enough to describe this scene in no approving terms in the presence of her husband. Her comments were not lost upon Edouard who returned the same evening with a magnificent Newfoundland dog answerins the name of Tom. At a breakfast which Edouard gave to some of his friends,the conversation turned upon the instincts and habits of animals each of the guests spoke of his repug nances or predilictions ; Edouard ex pressed the greatest antipathy to the cat. "It is selfish, thieving, cruel," he said "its caresses are not marks of affection but expressions ot its wants. When it gets a mouse in its claws, it will restore it to a dreadful liberty, twenty times, for the pleasure of seizing it again. There never was more horrible torture for a pleasure nor more refined cruelty in an cxecu tioner. After this violent sortie of the feline race, Louise could not live without a cat she chose a superb Angora, which she christened with the name of Raton. It may be imagined that there was not an entente cordial Tom and Eaton. Lou ise, always ready to come to the assis tance of her favorite, was lavish of cor rection to Tom, while Eaton received an equal share from Edouard, all which did not increase the harmony of the house hold. r . . Among the visitors whom the ties ol IRASBUPtGU, relationship or their position ia thefworld obliged Edouard and Louise to receive, there were some who monsieur favored with bis affection, Ivhile for others he felt repugnance. Madame made it her duty to be very liberal of courtesies to the last, and to reserve all her coldness for the former. It is ' uselessto add monsieur made rehearsals on the persons whom madame liked or detested. .. ... Edouard naturally gay in his disposi tion, had a grea aversion for sombre colors, particularly black. Louise. had suddenly a great'' paision for this" color. She woVelackiahtfljftsJ' black lr esses, von wnnl1 1i her family. Retaliation was not long in coming, i Louise had said a hundred times that she would not change their apartments in the Rue de Rivole for a palace ; Edouard suddenly discovered that the location was too noisy, he gave warning to his land lord, and took lodgings in a dark house in the most deserted street of the Morais. Music, even in 6pite of the opinion which Motier puts in the mouth of the professor of M. Jordain, was powerless to re-establish harmony. To the great an noyance of delicate ears in the neighbor hood, as soon as madame began to play in the key of tot, monsieur would take a prediliction for the key of la, and if mon sieur found pleasure in the melancholy movement of an adaigo, madame com menced immediately one of the most parkling polka of her repertoire. They had lived thus for more than a month. The vase was full ; a drop was only wanting to make it overflow. It was not long in comingi One morning, Edouard, as he was about to go to the court room, perceived Raton nonchalantly extended upon the papers he was to take with him. It was permitted to Tom to take such a liberty, but in Raton it was irreverence which could not be chastised too severely. The indiscreet Angora, vigorously seized by the neck, described a curve whose ex tremity encountered a beautiful porcelain vase, a recent present to Louise from her dearest boarding-school friend. Attracted by the noise, she had no difficulty in de teenng tne cuiprit. "You have taught me, sir, to be sur prised at nothing," she said, picking up the precious fragments. Blame this cursed animal, madame, whom I found extended on my papers." "This poor animal has only spared you the iniative in a new style of annoyance, which you would doubtless soon have in vented." "I am lost in admiration of your per spicacity, madame, and especially at the amiability of your conjectures." "To-predict the future it is only neces sary to recall the past." " You delight in playing the part of a victim." "No one will dispute with you the palm in that of tyrant. "If the tyranny is so insupportable " "The slave should then throw off the yoke ? Is that what you were about to say, sir 9" "At any rate nothing is easier ; hus bands have no bastiles at the present dav to support this pretended tyranny." "If they had, most of them would throw the doors open on condition of never see ing the prisoners again." "A not unreasonable conjecture." "I have been thinking seriously, for some time, of satisfying your secret de sire." "Indeed ! I have not been accustomed to have my wishes thus anticipated." "My mother has already offered me an asylum." "Ah ! you are a woman of precaution." "And of execution." "Whenever you tvish " "This very evening, sir." "The sooner the better." "The quarrel was interrupted by the announcement : "Here is the doctor, ma dame." Louise had been indisposed for several days, and had given orders that the phy sician should be sent for. None of the disputes between the hus band and wife had proceeded so far as this ; Edouard bowed to the doctor, and went out, merely casting a haughty glauce at his wife, which was returned with in terest What took place between Louise and the physician ? Nothing but what was very common. The doctor gravely .elt at her pulse, made inquiries respecting her ap petite, her diet, the state of her spirits ; then, having expressed his opinion in a few words, be wrote a mild prescription f j an4 withdrew ; yet he hardly departed YERMOXT, FRIDAl JULY 25, 1856. when Louise sank back into berir, ahd tears flowed freely down her cljks ; but her grief w as not of long flusiton. Ev dfrrees her brow became mntse- I j c vere ; & smile appeared upon Lerips ; the color returned to her cheeks her eyes shone. 1 "Yes," she exclaimed, "H is a sjred duty, which I will perform," an joon after she added, "a duty"! I will mie it a pleasure. I will find my bappions in it." ', ; She did not go to her mother thatjven ing as she had threatened. - Edouard did not pass a ve;? f nnau. night; though satisfied he "f. that he might have done it with a little less harshness ; .but the evil was irrepar able now ; honust meet the consequences, with firmness and philosophy. 1 We may judge of his surprise the next morning when at the breakfast hour he saw Louise take her usual place at table. He looked in vain for any traces of the anger which had animated her the even ing before. Her face was perfectly calm though somewhat pale. Edouard at tributing to illness what was the natural consequences of a sleepless night, though himself bound at least to make the com mon place enquiry after her health, and said "Are you indisposed, madame ?" "I have been, but am quite Well now," she replied, in a tone so gentle as to excite Edouard's surprise. At the close of the repast, the cooks came in to receive her orders. "I wish you to procure some wood cocks for dinner to-day," said Louise. "But I thought madame disliked them.' "My husband fancies them, that is enough." It MtoA a trifling thing, but it was the first concession that Louise had made since their marriage, and her husband said, good humoredly "Since we are to have woodcocks you had better invite your uncle Joseph to dine." Uncle Joseph was one of those on whom monsieur had most frequently avenged the sarcasms of madame. Edouard had replied to the civility of Louise by a civilitv on him part,- yet he kept himself on his guard. "Women are adroit," he reflected. "What they cannot gain by force they attempt to gain by art Perhaps this unexpected difference is a trap for my generosity: I must be firm as well as courteous." The day had commenced too well to end ill. Edouard, in the course of it, re calling the aerial voyage of the unfortu nate Raton, began to feel some remorse, and looked around for the poor animal to give it, at least the indemnity of a caress ; but the Angora was neither on the car pet nor on the divan, nor on the Jaw pa pers, which had been the starting point for its perilous leap. What has become of Raton ?" he asked of a servant "Raton has cone away. I carried it this morning to madame's mother. Ma dame has made her a present of it." This was so extraordinary, incompre hensible, that it had to be repeated before Edouard could believe it. And his surprise was not greater than that of honest uncle Joseph, when on ac cepting, somewhat unwillingly, his niece's invitation, Edouard met him with a cor dial smile, pressed his hand warmly, and paid him many compliments ; and, what was still more agreeable, there was no snarling Tom to salute him as usual with a growl. "What have you done with Tom 7 he asked at length. "Have you shut him up "I have done better ; I have scut him to a brother lawyer who admired him very much while I was glad to be rid of a trou blesome animal who bit my friends and annoyed my wife. It is necessary to say that during the rest of the day Louise was charmingly amiable, and Edouard overflowing with frank gayety, and that uncle Joseph, on his return home, declared that now that that dog was gone, the house of his niece was a veritable terrestrial paradise. The next day, while at her toilet Lou- ise put her hand, by habit, on oue of those black dresses which Edouard particularly disliked, but, recollecting herself, she se lected the freshest and most coquetish dress in her wardrobe, placed a flower in her hair aud another in her eomge, then yielding to the influence of the bright colors of her attire, she began to sing merrily, running from one apartment to another to survey herself in the different mirrors. ouiMowy-sue cncouu.erea r.uouaru the passage. Their meeting was like coup de Theatre. Ixmise in her gay dress, with a bright mile on her lips an ex pression of pleasure on her face and so nrpttv there was all the difference te- i ' f tween a sulky woman and A weuwn in -good humor. Edouard's admiration betrayed itscji by an involuntary exclamation, but alarm ed at this imprudent manifestation he re treated suddenly, in far of losing that ; firmness and diirnitv which he considered U necessary to maintain """J- nH T RfTfiin he was better prenarea oui not it charmed. "Your toilette, mndatne," he said, 're- dismal. Our apartments in the Rue dn 1 Rivoli are not 3-et retitea ; we can return ! there if it is agreeable to you." c ' tion of the head that she felt the value of! this generous offer. "Verily," she said to herself, "by force of obeying lam likely to become mis- tress. "I am satisfied with myself," said Edouard in returning to his apartment "Without showing any weakness I have acknowledged an attention' by an equiva lent one. I have acquitted myself of an obligation like a gentleman, and not like a simpleton." In the contentment which this self-approbation inspired, he took his flute and commenced a lively measure. All at once, it seemed to him that a distant piano was 1 responding to the same theme, and with notes not less sparkling. He stops. The piano is silent. He recommences in a still more lively movement ; the piano abandons itself to the most brilliant vari ations. Is it an illusion ? No, certainly, the piano of Louise finds itself for the first time after so long an interval in accord with Edouard's flute. Charmed with a pleasure whose novel ty doubled its attraction, our virtues now changed the allegro movement to an adai go full of sentiment and tenderness. Im mediately the piano murmurs an accom paniment of seraphic sweetness. A touch ing emulation seems 'to inspire the two instruments ; the flute eiglts and weeps ; the piano forgets its light and sparkling nature to become mellow and caressing. Ccuri4 ,w4tv hj- -the irreeioUible power of harmony, the souls of the two perform ers seem to meet into one. Suddenly, the flute stops ; Louise waits for it to re commence ; when slic hears a step be hind her and her husbands arm is around her waist Monsieur Jourdain's professor of music was right ! "How pleasant it is to understand each other V said Edouard one evening after they were established again in their new apartments in the Rue de Rivoli. "Yet we have debarred ourselves for a whole month of that enjoyment," replied Louise. "What folly!" "And the folly would have lasted j-et. sir," said Louise, archly, "1 f I had not the inspiration to take the first step." "You are an angel 1 I shall never par don myself for having allowed you to an ticipate me in your generosity." "I am too honest, dear Edouard, to let you attribute to generosity what was only the result of a single word of our good doctor.

Why, gentlemen, at the school of Moritpelier, (God knows it was famous enough in its day,) they discarded the study of anatomy, and taught nothing but the dispensary ; and the doctors edu cated there knew just as much, and were quite as successful as any others. I re peat it, nobody knows anything about medicine. True enough, we are gather ing facts every day. We can produce typhus fever, for example, by injecting a certain substance into the veins of a dog that's something ; we alleviate diabetes, and I see distinctly, we are fast Approach ing the day when phthisis can be cured as easily as any disease. We are col lecting facts in the right spirit, and I dare say in a century or so the accumulation of facts may enntile our successors to form a medical science ; but I repeat to you, there is no such thing now as a med ical science. Who can tell me how to cure the headache ? or the gout ? or dis ease of the heart ? Nobody. Oh ! you tell me doctors cure people. I grant you, people are cured. But how are thej cured ? Gentlemen, nature does a great deal. Imagination docs a good deal. Doctors do devilish little when they don't do harm. Let me tell Jou, gentle men, what I did when I was the head physician at Hotel Dieu. Some 3,000 or 4,000 pctients passed through my hands every year. I divided the patients into two classes ; with one, I fullowcd the dis pensary and gave them the usual medi cines without having the least ida why or wherefore ; to the other, I gave bread pills and colored water, without, of course, letting them know anything about it and occasionally, gentlemen, I would create a third divii.m, to whom I pave nothing whatever. These last would fret a good deal, thry would feel they were neglected, unless tbcv are well dru"ed the fools !) and they would irritate them selves until they got really rick, but u i ture invariably came to the rescue, and all the persons iu thisthiid class got w.-H There was little mortality among those who received bread pills and colored wa ter, and the mortality was greatest among those ho were carefully drugged accor ding to the dUjenary !"
