THE LIGHT OF LOTE.
Fwrjs the flush of aummer dawn,
Whan the gate of pearl uncloses,
AsiKglimmers along the dewy lawn
"himmera among the rosea,
wakes the little drops of dew
To quiverings o!
delight,
And threada the aisles ol the forest through,
On the trail ol the flying night.
"le 8'eam the summer stars

the
'ever'8'1day ta over,
when the lays are afloat in silver can
And the dusky moth is a rover,
When'over the couch of the dreaming flow
ers
The mists of the fountains creep,
And the languid ears of the drowsy hours
Are wooed by the song of the deep.
®"t the dazzling hues of the morning fall,
And dull are its golden lances.
And all the light of the stars grow pale
In my darling's tender glances:
For the stars may shine with a thousand
dyes,
And a m.vrind sunbeams fall,
Bnt the light of love in a woman's eyes
Is the purest light of all.
A Story of tht French Reyo
lution
From the ,ton Times.
One lovely day in Augusta year or
two before the frantic uprising of the
long oppressed and down trodden
sP®0Ple
*., are going, and on my return, if the
future is to be a bright one, then the
king shall hear of our adventure."
It was toward the close of the day
when two sisters of charity in black
robes and close black bonnets might
have been seen hurrying along through
obscure streets trying to elude
observation, and the taller one
held a handkerchief to her face whenev
er a passer-by glanced toward them.
At length hailing a public carriage,
they were driven rapidly through the
well lighted thoroughfares, until they
came to a large house with an aristo
cratic air it was dark and sombre
looking outside and was surrounded
by a courtyard. The coachman open
ed the gate for his passengers, and
gave a long loud knock on the oaken
door and left, after being told to re
turn in an hour's time. A servant an
swered the summons and the taller
lady asked for Count Cagliostro he
bowed, and silently and noiselessly as
a shadow he glided over the thick car
pet. A bronze lamp dimly lighted up
the large and lofty hallway. Ushering
the strangers into a magnificent
apartment, all lighted with dozens of
perfumed wax lights in glittering can
del a bras and gorgeous with velvet fur
niture, the man announced in aloud
voice:
"Two ladies to see the Count Cag
liostro."
Seated at a table in the center ot
the room was a gentleman near forty
years of age, short, fair haired, blue
eyed, with a pensive expression on
his fine looking countenance, and
nobility stamped on his open and
manly forehead. This was the then
famous necromancer. The maid of
tfr honor trembled and clung nervously to
the arm of her royal mistress, but
the queen advanced with a proud
step.
"Your majesty honors my humble
abode," said the gentleman as he
qf arose and kneeling kissed the hand of
the queen.
"Ah! so you penetrated my dis
guise?" laughed the lady, but blushing
a little as she met the clear blue eyes
of the count fixed upon her lovely
countenance.
"Who could ever forget the face of
Marie Antoinette, the most beautiful
queen who ever sat upon a throne?"
replied Cogliostro, as he placed chairs
for the ladies, bowing to" the ground
as he did so. Marie Antoinette re
moved her heavy hood and cloak and
her beauty was dazzling. Robed in a
soft grey silk with costly laces at the
neck and short elbow sleeves, her fair
hair of which she was so proud dress
ed high on her head in the fashion of
the day, and her eyes blue as wood
land violets, her throat, around which
glittered a circle of diamonds, was
long and slender, her hands, also
flashing with gems, were perfect, the
expression of her face severe but
noble. Jeanne also laid aside her
disguise and then the queen turning to
the count said, while a sweet smile
lighted up her countenance.
""We have intruded on your valua
ble time I fear, but we wish you to
favor us with our horoscope."
Jeanne turned pale as the strange
being glanced toward her, for she
thought of the many rumors she had
heard in regard to him how he was
said to have the art of renewing his
youth, that he had lived for thou
sands of years and yet was young,
that he could read as from a book the
destiny of all he met.
At this request of the queen Count
Cogliostro looked at her with a mel
ancholy air full of pity and kindness,
and Jeanne feltatnrillofsuperstitious
horror pervade her frame but the
queen smiling and calm awaited quiet
ly until the mysterious man should
speak.
"Madame, my honored mistress, I

I
of France, there sat in an ex*
-^quisite boudoir in the palace at Ver
sailles, two ladies engaged in lively
conversation. The room was
a charm
ing little retreat with painted ceilings
and walls hung with Gobelin tapestry
of maguiricent workmanship there
were rosewood floors, curtains of silk
and lace, furniture of gray and gold,
chefs-d' amore of carving and enamel,
glass, lustres, gothic clocks, embroid.
ered screens, paintings by Vernet and a
thousand other trifles and luxurious
appointments of which the fair queen
was so fond. The elder lady, who was
between thirty-three and thirty-four
years of age was remarkably beautiful,
although at first sight, a great air of
hauteur detracted slightly from the
charm of her expression. Her car
riage was so proud and her whole ap
pearance so distinguished one could
tell at a glance that the lady was the
Queen Marie Antoinette. Her com
panion who was ten or twelve years
younger was hardly less beautiful than
her majesty. Her complexion was
charming her brown hair drawn back
from the temples showed to advan
tage the perfect oval of her face, two
large blue eyes calm and sereue, a well
formed mouth and pearly teeth, such
was the appearance of the favorite
maid of honor to the queen.
"Jeanne," said the queen, as she
bent oyer her embroidery frame, "I
have often heard of the great and
wonderful power of the Socerer Count
Cagliostro, ma belle we will visit him
this afternoon in disguise and beg him
to cast our horoscope and favor us
with a glimpse into the future."
"But, your majesty," replied the
lady called Jeanne, "What will the
king say? I fear he will not approve."
"We will not inform him where we

cannot refuse a request of yours, if
you insist," and the count bowed hum
bly before his royal mistress.
"But I do insist, and if that will not
answer then I command," the qneen
smilingly replied but at the same
time, Jeanne who knew Marie Antoin
ette well, felt that she meant to be
obeyed in spite of entreaties.
No more being said the count sat in
silence for a moment, then there seem
ed to beam from his blue orbs an in
spired light.
"Your past has been pleasant, yon
have had youth, health, beauty and
adoration. Your future is clouded. I
cannot see clearly, but—" and hesita
ting he stopped.
"Goon, the queen commands," said
a calm voice and Marie Antoinette
aat smiling and undismayed.
"I see a great crowd," continued
Cogliostro in a low tone, "and a scaf
fold—a lady ascends the
steps, the exe
cutioner is there,the lady's long hairia
snowy white she turns—it is the
queen, it is Marie Antoinette."
He ceased and a cry of horror broke
from the pale lips of Jeanne.
"This is horrible! tell me you are
jesting," said the maid of honor look
ing at him with a supplicating air.
"I never jest," the strange being
answered coldly.
"You are not very gallant, Count
you frighten my little Jeanne by your
ghastly prophecies," calmly spoketho
queen, although truth to tell, ner own
cheek was slightly pale. "If you can
see anything bright in her life tell her
of it and drive away these shadows."
Cogliostro looked at the brave,
beautiful lady with respect and admi
ration: then turning to Jeanne he
smiled as he gazed on her sweet and
blushing face.
"You will ere many years pass over
your head be a happy wife and moth
er but before sunshine comes there
will be sorrow, darkness and grief.
You will marry a man of the people,
who will save you in the time of your
greatest danger."
"Happy girl," sighed Marie Antoi
nette as they resumed their disguises
and prepared to leave, "I envy you—
even I a queen, envy one who can
pass the evening of her days in quiet
and seclusion. To me is desired love
and trust. I often wish I had been
born an humble peasant, and had one
heart among the many that I could
call all my own but if I am to die on
the scaffold I will die as befits the
queen ot France."
The king never knew of the dark fate
predicted to his royal spouse. The
Count de Choisseul, father of Jeanne,
was very wealthy, and had vast pos
sessions in the south of ranee. He
was very haughty, looking down on
the common people, and treating them
as mere servants fit to do his will.
He was a staunch royalist adoring
the king and his beautiful queen. The
count's palace, or hotel as it was call
ed, was almost as magnificent as the
royal residence. Among the noble
man's household was a young gentle
man holding the office of private sec
retary to Count de Choisseul. Fran
cois Varney was a man of the people.
He and his brother Claude were or
phans. Francois was a fine looking
man, with interest beaming from the
large dark eyes, and in spite of
his humble birth his air was distin
guished, his manner perfect, and a
warm and loving heart beat within
his bosom. He had presumed to lift
his eyes and thoughts towards the
daughter of his employer and dared
in his secret moments to even think
that some day he might earn the
love of the peerless Jeanne de Chois
seul. Claude Varney, elder brother of
Francois, was an extreme republican,
hating the aristocracy and hating his
brother, as the wicked and unprinci
pled ever hate the honorable and the
noble. They had one relative, an
uncle, Jacques Varney, who resided in
Paris. He kept a public house there,
was a good honest citizen, but a true
man of the people, hating the
king and his lovely queen. The
months passed swiftly. At court and
among the nobles all was gaiety and
balls, masquerades, water parties and
other festivities followed each in their
season. The rich rolled in luxury, the
poor were starving. The queen so
charming, so beautiful, was called a
coquette, a butterfly.
Marie Antoinette was a true wom
an, and gloried in being loved. It was
an innocent coquetry, but alas! the
time was soon coming when every
little act of the poor lady would be
brought up in dark array against her.
The kins, Louis XVI., was vulgar,
coarse and sensual and in spite ol
his elegant costumes covered with
embroidery, and his hands sparkling
with diamonds, and his breast blaz
ing jewelled orders and crosses his
majesty had nothing digified or king
like in his demeanor.
The dark storm came, and at last
it broke with fury over the heads of
royalty and nobility, but even when
the Bastile was taken and ?ts captives
liberated, the nobles would not be
lieve that anything could menace their
holy order. Who has not read of the
Rei^n of Terror? Three men of the
people were the leaders in those ter
rible times, Marat, Oanten and Rob
espierre. They had power of the con
vention and the mob which none dar
ed resist. The guillotine was the aw
ful instrument used for cutting off
heads quickly. For a long time the
haughty aristocrats stood around
their king and queen, but at last they
began to flee, for the streets of Paris
resounded with the sound of oppres
sion and the cries of the wounded, and
Coblentz was filled with refugees.
The young secretary, Francois Var
ney, urged the father of Jeanne to flee
while yet there was time, but like a
brave and courtly gentleman he cast
in his lot with his royal master and
mistress and heeded not the advice of
his friends.
The king and queen were still at the
Tuileries and with them a few of their
staunch friends. The count was in
the cabinet of Louis, Jeanne in the
boudoir of her royal mistress. Sud
denly the air resoundea with oaths
and insulting cries. The mob had
reached Versailles and surrounded the
palace. They shouted and yelled for
the "baker, his wife and little boy,"
and for the "Austrian," as they termed
the queen. Among the mob was
Claude Varney, covered with dust, his
hands dripping blood. This monster
who had killed innocent women and
children now thirsted for the lives of
the hated count ana his daughter.
"They are in there, the haughty
Count de Choiseul and his dainty
daughter," cried the ruffian to
his comrades. "It was this aristo
crat who had me horsewhipped a year
ago for some slight offence. He hates
the common people and is a tyrant to
all. Out with him! kill him and his
white-faced brat!"
Francois 8. Varney had donned the
red cap of liberty, and shouted as he
with tne mob surrounde4 the palace:
& j,
"Down with the king! Down with th«
Austrian! Away with aristocracy."
At length he managed to slip away
from the sight of his cruel brother,
and without ceremony he hastened to
the little boudoir where he hoped to
And Jeanne. By this time the royal
couple with their children had man
aged, by the help of friends, to escape
from the palace and were fleeing as
fast as fleet horses could carry them
from the scene of bloodshed.
When the lover of Jeanne entered
the luxurious room of the fugitive
queen, he found the daughter of the
count alone, for her father had bade
her remain there until he came for
hor* He was assisting his master and
mistress in their efforts to leave the
palace.
"Jeanne, my love, my life!" cried
Francois, forgetting all etiquette, all
concealment of his feelings in this hour
of peril. "I have come to save you.
The mob are crying for your father's
and your blood. Come with me be
fore it is too late!"
The half fainting girl, even when a
thousand dangers surrounded her,
felt a thrill of delight as she realized
she was beloved by this noble youth,
and though pale and trembling, she
murmured in low tones:
"Dear Francois, you are brave and
devoted to risk your life for my sake,
but if it is any reward to you for the
feril
you are in, hear me confess that
love you, have loved you since the
first hour we met."
"My darling, believe me when I say
you shall be nappy, you'shall escape
from here and
"But my father," interrupted Je
anne.
"Alas! my darling. The count has
been arrested, and is to be tried be
fore the dreaded convention, but we
have no time to waste. Let me save
you. I will then see what lean dofor
your father. See, I have brought you
a disguise," and he showed her a sim
ple peasant dress. "Put this on quick
ly, for in ten minutes the mob will be
here."
In the gray dusk Jeanne made her
escape disguised at a grisette, in short
dress, laced bodice, high capote.
When the brother of Franc.tis en
tered the palace his intended victims
were beyond his reach. The young
secretary took Jeanne to the house
of his uncle, the good Jacques. For
tunately for the daughter of the Count
de Coisseul, the blood-thirsty villian,
Claude Varney, had been wounded
and therefore could not visit his
uncle.
Every one was charmed with the
new barmaid who appeared at the
inn of Jacques. It was true her skin
was a little brown, her hair coarse,
and the glasses she wore not very be
coming, but then she was so pleasant,
so willing and so nimble of foot! No
one ever waited on the rude crowd as
this girl did. Poor delicate little
aristocrat! many a bitter hour did
she pass, many .a blush bathed her
cheek as she listened to the vulgar
jest, the loud laugh and coarse re
marks of the Tuflians who came to the
Royal Arms to drink.
"My father—where is he?" said
Jeanne to her lover, as they were for
a brief moment alone together.
What could Francois say? How
could he tell her of the tale of her be
loved parent who had met his death
the day before by the guillotine?
"You hesitate, you turn pale! Alas!
my father, my poor father! I am alone
in the world!" said the grief-stricken
girl, bursting into tears.
"Not alone, dear Jeanne," murmur
ed Francois. "You have me. I am
poor and humble, but I will love and
protect you, and try to make you
happy."
At length it became dangerous for
Jeanne to remain longer under the roof
of the Royal Arms. Claude was ex-
Eer
ected there every day, and in spite of
disguise would recognize the royal
fugitive. So the kind hearted uncle of
Francois gave the young couple mon
ey, they were secretly married by a
priest,and then fled to Coblentz,where
Jeanne met many of her former friends.
Years passed. The unfortunate
queen iiad long since met the sad fate
predicted by the Count Cagliostro
and Jeanne ae Choisseul, now Madame
Varney, was happy and beloved.
And although her noble friends often
spoke ot the uneaqual match, she
never gave a thought to the difference
in rank between her and her husband.
"Mon Ami, you are almost as
charming as when you became my
bride, now fifteen years ago," "said
Francois to Jeanne one day, as she
stood smiling by his side, while at
their feet played two lovely children,
and their eldest, a girl just in her
teens and the image of her fair mother
gazed on the blue-eyed lady.
"Have you ever repented marrying
so much beneath you, ma belle?"
asked her husband, as the setting sun
enveloped the group in a midst of
golden splendor.
"Never, dear Francois. I am happy
with you and our children, and the
past seems like a fearful dream."
Red Men with Blue Eyes.
Along the Red river valley is to be
found one of the most curious popu
lations to be found anywhere in the
world, says a writer in the Washing
ton Star. I refer to the half and
quarter bands, the descendants of the
Scotchmen who came to this country
in the days of the Hudson's Bay Com
pany and their Indian wives. They
present a most peculiar combination
of the Scotch and Indian types, the
dark skin and high-cheek bones of the
Indian, with the light hair and blue
eyes of the Scoi chnian. Physically,
they area splendid race, being lithe,
tall and muscular and are tha best
and most enduring runners lever saw,
travelling hundreds of miles through
the woods in the dead of winter with
incredible rapidity. All speak French,
but the broad Scotch burr is percepti
ble in their pronunciation, making
their language a most remarkable
one. They are famous hunters and
trappers, and. when not drunk, very
peaceable. They took no part in the
recent uprising in the northwest, as
they have no affiliations with the
French half-breeds or Indians, but
form a little community by them
selves. As voyageurs they are un
equalled, and are the happiest beings
I ever saw. They do not take kindly
to life in villages or towns and are
fast moving away before the advance
of civilization, but I fear that those
who take their places will not have
their virtues.

"THE BLOOD IS THE LIFE."
Thoroughly cleanse the blood, which is the fountain of health, by using Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, and good
digestion, a fair skin, buoyant spirits, and bodily health and vigor will be established.
Golden Medical Discovery cures all humors, from the common pimple, blotch, or eruption, to the worst Scrofula, or blood
poison. Especially has it proven its efficacy in curing Salt-rheum or Tetter, Fever-sores, Hip-Joint Disease, Scrofulous Sores
and Swellings, Enlarged Glands, and Eating Ulcers.
I will be restored
to perfect health. I
would say to those who are falling a prey to
that terrible disease consumption, do not do as I did, take every
thing else first but take the'Golden Medical Discovery' in the
early stages of tho disease, and thereby save a great deal of suf
fering and be restored to health at once. Any person who is
still in doubt, need but write me, inclosing a stamped, self
addressed envelope for reply, when the foregoing statement will
be fully substantiated by me."

Mrs. PARMKLIA BRCNDAGK, of 161 Lock Street,
Lockport, H. r. writes: I was troubled with
chills, nervous and general debility, with frequent
sore throat, and my mouth was badly cankered^
My liver was inactive, and I suffered much from
dyspepsia. I am pleased to say that your 'Golden
Medical Discovery' and 'Pellets' have cured me of all these
ailments and 1 cannot say enough in their praise. I must also
say a word in reference to your 'Favorite Prescription,' as it
has proven itself a most excellent medicine for weak females.
It has been used in uly family with excellent results."
Dyspepsia.—JAMES L. COLBY, Esq., of Yucatan, Houston Gal
Minn., writes: "1 was troubled with indigestion, and would eat
heartily and grow poor at the same time. 1 experienced heartburn,
and many other disagreeable symptoms common
to that disorder. I commenced taking your
'Golden Medical Discovery' and 'Pellets/and
I ain now entirely free from the dyspepsia, and
am, in fact, healthier than I have been for
five years. I weigh one hundred and seventy
one and one-half pounds, and have done as
much work the past summer as I have ever
done in tbe same length of time in my life. I never took a
medicine that seemed to tone up the muscles and invigorate
the whole system equal to your 'Discovery' and 'Pellets/"

A TERRIBLE
AFFLIGTION.
CONSUMPTION, WEAK LUNGS, SPITTING OF BLOOD.
GOLDEN MEDICAL DISCOVERY cures Consumption (which is Scrofula of the Lungs), by its wonderful blood-purifying, invigora
ting and nutritive properties. For Weak Lungs, Spitting of iilood. Shortness of Breath, Bronchitis, Severe Coughs, Asthma,
and kindred affections, it is a sovereign remedy. While it promptly cures tho severest Coughs it strengthens the system
and purifies the blood.
It rapidly builds up the system, and increases the flesh and weight of those reduced below the usual standard of health by
"wasting diseases."
Consumption.—Mrs. EDWARD NEWTON, of TTarrousm'th,
Out., writes: You will ever be praised by me for the remarka
ble cure in my case. I was so reduced that my friends hud all
given me up, and I had also been given up by two doctors. 1 then
went to the best doctor in these parts. He told me that medicine
was only a punishment in my ease, and would not undertake to
treat me. Ho said I might try Cod liver oil if 1
liked, as that was tho only thing that could possi
bly have any curative power over consumption so
far advanced. I tried the Cod liver oil as a last
treatment, but I was so weak I could not keep it
on my stomach. My husband, not feeling satisfied
to give me up yet, though he hud boupnt for me
everything he saw advertised for my complaint, procured a quan-

Golden Medical Discovery. The disease ap

covering the whole of the lower limbB from feet to knees, then
attacked the elbows and became so severe as to prostrate her.
After being treated by several physicians for a year or two sh®
commenced the use of the medicine named above. She soon
began to mend and is now well and hearty. Mrs. Poole thinks
the medicine hits saved her life and prolonged her days."
