THE POTTER'S SECRET.
'oward the middle of the Third century, the city of Liusanamm in Arvernie had not the calm and modest aspect of Lesoux, the little town which is the chief place of the can -on of Auvergne, located upon the same site. Liusannum was a vast industrial town, an important center, where the manufacture of pottery oeeupied a multitude of workmenand nriched numerous families, proud to sign their names to the works issuing from their establishments. Since the Roman occnpation, many verit able artists in designing, coming from all enatrigs, had established themselves about the old Gallic potteries in this region, where the finest ceramic earth was found in abun lnce. A great number came from Rome nad the other cities of the peninsula; many were from Greece, Illyria, Phma.nica, and ,.a Judea. Their names, preserved upon he fragments of their vases, clearly indicate heir origin. Ellenus, Asiaticus, Particus, Leircis, Uxopillus, Borillus, and a hundred dthers vied in imagination to create these lecorative subjects, these wreaths and orna aents which stand in relief upon the grace ul vases, whose beantiful pink glazing has .sisted alike the action of humidity and of Ame. Liusannum then, about the year 260 of our ea, presented a very noteworthy aspect Its cosmopolitan population offered to the view Sstrange mixture of all sorts of costumes. ll dialects, all accents, all races mingled apon the public squares, in the shadow of the emples and under their porticoes, though he Latin element was dominant. Through heir alliances with the principal Gallic fam lies, the conquerors had succeeded, little by Ittle, in spreading their customs and their -oliefs Some rare children of the soil, pure from ll contact with Rome, full of hatred for the ,vader, nursing still in their hearts a vague mope of enfranchisement, remained faithful o the creed and the manner of their ances ors Among these were distinguished, from ather to son, the descendants of the Arch Iruid Diorix, the same who encouraged the on of Celtill to resist Caesar. This numer us family, thanks to its pride, its virtues. ad, perhaps, to its wealth, had finally thieved the respect of the conquerors them elves; and, notwithstanding their declared ttitude against the Roman influence and heir refusal of the highest dignities, the pro raetors of Augusto-Nemetum had always rotected them against the zeal of their lieu enants. "One must know how to wait," aid one of these able administrators; "time ad persuasion will finally conquer their esistane." In effect, time had considerably iminished the number of representatives of his opulent family. Since the time when he brothers and nephews of the archdruid e11 In combat near Vercingetorix, its sons ad fought courageously against the pro ousuls of Rome, but, little by little, their ager had calmed astheir hope vanished, and or a long time they had contented them elves with the direction of the most cele rated pottery of Liusannum, wherein they reduced, with the aid of true artists, works rhich were known and sought for through at the empire. The products of their immense establish sent were distinguished by the purity and armony of their lines, by the elegance of ulet designs wherein the human figure was srely represented, and, above all, by a rose olored or greenish glaze of a vitreous and rilliant luster, the secret of which they alone assessed. The Gallo-Roman, Phoenician and Greek otters, their rivals, also made, with rare lant, the same utensils, with glazing uni amly pink, unalterable, decorated with irious subjects inspired by the Grecian eythology; but they could not equal the nish, the transparency, the luster of the orks signed "Diorix," because, in spite of L their efforts, they had been unable to dis ver the secret of the incomparable glazing. his secret was revealed to the eldest son of oe family, who made the mixtures himself, ad who, through a spirit of patriotism sther than through interest, guarded it _credly in spite of the most tempting offers. The father of the last of the Diorix had dd to him on his death bed: "I leave you oe secret of our fathers engraved upon these ibleta Preserve it preciously. It is the ly means left to us of resisting our con aerors. You are very young, but you will member the prediction of our ancestor, the nchdruid, who said: 'When the stranger aows our secret destruction, ruin and anni ilation will hang over our heads.' " So Xobert, at 18 years of age, after having eard the last wishes of his father, and having worn to him to respect them, remained the de heir of the immense riches and sole pos esor of the secret of his family. It was a fine evening toward the end of the summer. Upon the summit of the hillock in the neighborhood of Liusannum, near the verge of a superb forest, a young man and a young girl were seated. The young man, with his long yellow hair, his blue eyes and fresh complexion, was a perfect type of those fierce Gauls who, in olden times, had made Greece and Rome tremble. The saugum of rich stuff, the collar from which hung a large carbuncle, the bracelets of fine gold, all his costume proved him a rich and powerful Ar verne. The young girl was beautiful, with her white robe falling in straight, narrow folds, covered with the stole of the same color. Brunette without color, her black hair, fastened with a pink coral pin, marvel ously finished her perfect profile. She was certainly one of the prettiest girls of the Roman colony. Watching the two seated on a bankof moss in the trembling shadow of the foliage, it was apparent that ono sentiment animated this loving couple. They gazed long and silently into each other's eyes; then their looks wandered over the vast panorama which unrolled itself at their feet, between the gigantic oaks and great white beeches whose branches interlaces above their heads. Before them, not far from the forest, theout lying potteries showed their red roofs scat tered over the plain. Then the city, with its pediments, colonnades and temples, formed an imposing mass, and the sound of its bustle, abated toward evening, faintly reached the hillock. Beyond stretched the immenseplain, covered with trees from among which emerged, here and there, hillocks crowned with grand monuments. In the distance, Augusto-Nemetum, eight Roman miles away, was hardly visible through the mist; but above, the undulating line of the mountains, clear and intensely blue, bordered the hori son and stood boldly out against the sky, in flamed by the fires 6f the declining sun. In the center, upon the highest cone, a slight prominence indicated the place of the cele brated temple of Mercury Dumiatus, and, at one side, a shining point revealed the pres ence of the gigantic statue, the marvelous work of Zenodurus. This oft contemplated spectacle appeared to absorb the attention of the two silent lovers. The young Arverne was Xobert, last scion of the Diorix. The young girl was named Lydia. Her father, Balbuo, who came from Rome in early youth, was one of the wealthlest potters of Liusannum. His sumptuous house was adjacent to the estab lishment of Diorix, but no intimacy, no tie had ever united, the two families. Had Xobert, then, since the death of his father, forgotten the proud dignity of his ancestors! How could he humble himself before one of the abhorred race of the conquerors? When Xobert first found himself alone at the head of his flourishing industry, Lydia, almost a child, had not yet attracted his no tice, but in less than a year the child was transformed into a woman, and her sovereign beauty expanded suddenly. Xobert occe sionally saw her, and became madly en amored of her. Long did he struggle against a passion which in his eyes was criminal, long did he reflect upon the example of his ancestors, which was the rule for his conduct, but he was conquered by Lydia's grace, charm and beauty. One day, finding her alone, he tremblingly told his love, and she fled from him. But shortly afterward either the young girl felt the same attraction toward him, or, perhaps, her father foresaw in a possible union a way of enlarging his fortune and influence, and, above all, a means of finally obtaining a knowledge of the envied secret of Diorix, for she no longer took fright at the tender and passionate words of Xobert. She listened: she responded; and often they found the.m aelves alone under the protecting shades of the forest where our tale has found them, lost in the splendors of the horizon em blazoned by the sun. All at once Xobert left his contemplation. and, turning to Lydia, took her hand, and mid: "It is now more than a year that I have loved you. It is long since you told me that your heart belonged tome, yetmy mouth has not touched your candid brow, my lips have not even gramed the hem of your virginal robe. 0, Lydial is your father inexorable? When shall I see the thrice happy day of our betrothall" Lydia, without withdrawing her hand, re plied: "When I revealed to my father my sentiments towards you, he became violently angry. He supplicated me to have no faith in the promises of one of the mostardent ene wie of ou. rsce Seeine me grieved and die cosaolate, e was troubled by my ears an ilemobeca~ue I am more dear to him than my brothers and isters I selsedthemomen to combat his prejudice against you. For sometime now he has seemed to be on the point of yielding to my prayers. Only yes terday, he admitted to me that he would be willing to have you enter his family if he could be convinced of your disinteretedne 'Are you certain,' said he, 'of the loyalty of this silver tongued young Gaul, of this proud Arverne whose ancestors have always disdained our race, and who keeps for him self alone a secret useful to allf When be shall have given some conclusive proof of his love, then, and then only, win l4gladly open to him the doors of my dwelling.'" "But whatproof of my love can I give? If any danger menaces you, I will joyfully con front death itself." "May it please the gods that destiny shall never give you the occasion to thus prove your courage." "I see well, Lydia, that your father will never consent to our union. He invents at pleasure obstacles to retard our happiness, counting upon time to rid him of me. Let us flytogether. Letus goand livealonetogether in the vastforests; there we shall be happy and free." "Never; never! My father would die of despair." And, remembering that Balbuo had inti mated to her that he would consent to her marriage if the son of Diorix would confide his secret to her, she added: "Listen, Xobert; I have perhaps found the means of overcoming his resistance. All your rivals are jealous of the products of your nmanufactory. My father has often ex pressed before me his envyof your secret. If you love me, ought I not to know all your thoughts? Reveal to me this impenetrable secret. I can then say to my father: 'I love him, and I have reason to love him, for he has given me a convincing proof of his love.'" Xobert's face grew dark. A slight doubt traversed his mind. But Lydia stood before him so earnest, her face expressed so much loyalty and frankness, that he promptly re jected all suspicion. And then, he knew she was ignorant of his oath and the sinister pre diction. But, trembling at the recollection of the last words of Diorix, he replied: "Demand of me all that I possess, my wealth, my goods, my very blood, but do not ask me to reveal this secret." "You do not love me then above every thing? You will not make your wife the confidant of all your thoughts?" "Lydia, I love you more than allthe world, but you ask me the one thing that I cannot confide to you." "So, you refuse me the sole means of pla cating my father. You will not respond to my requestf. "Alas! I cannot;" and the young Arverne hung his head in sadness. "You do not love me; you have never loved me," murmured Lydia, who could not com prehend this refusal; and great tears rolled down her cheeks Then, rising suddenly "Since it is so, it is better that we should separate. Goodby, goodby forever!" And, lying through the trees, she disappeared in the shadows of the forest. In acting thus, the young girl was sincere. Deeply in love, she could not comprehend the obstinate resistance of Xobert. She was hurt; she suffered profoundly, for she well knew that Balbuo would never consent to their union unless some great inducement were offered him. Xobert stood for a moment as itf deprived of his senses. Soon, however, lifting his head and finding himself alone, he compre hended all the violence of his love. Instantly he precipated himself upon the path of the young girl, calling to her in a heartrending voice: "Lydia! Lydia!" As he came within sight of her she slackened her pace, and, run ning to her, he folded her in his arms. "Do you know what you ask of me, Lydial You would make me break a solemn oath. I swore to my dying father never to betray to any one the secret of our art. This secret is written upon ivory tablets which Icarryin my bosom, so that, while I live, no one may set eyes upon them." "I was ignorant of that," said Lydia trembling. "You are also ignorant that my ancestor has predicted our ruin and annihilation if these tablets should fall into the hands of our rivals. Would you then conspire against my life and my happiness?' "Heaven is my witness," replied Lydia, "that all that was unknown to me. Guard well your secret, since its betrayal would lead to your ruin. We will seek some other means of persuading my father, for I will not be the cause of woe to you. I should die of despair if, through my fault, a single hair fell from your head. And she fixed upon him her eyes brimming with tears. Xobert had never seen her so beautiful, never was his passion so uncontrollable. He forgot everything, and said: "Sooner than lose you, adorable child, I would satisfy all your caprices, were the thunder of Tarann to fall on my head. I have entire confidence in you. Will you not soonbemy wife? Oughtyou nottoreadmy soul like myself? Take then these tablets whereon is written the secret of the Diorix.L Iknowthat in your hands theywill be as safe as in my own." "No, I cannot have you perjure yourself, not even to prove to me your love." "Is it to be perjured to have with one's wife but one thought, one sentiment?" "I supplicate you, keep these tablets sa ered." "No, takethem. Our happiness exactsit." And, placing them in Lydia's hands, he turned swiftly and strode away. The girl called him invain. Thenshe ran after him, but he had disappeared in the shadow of the night which commenced to veil the hills of Liusannum. A month has hardly passed and all is ready in the mansion of Balbuo for the celebration of the betrothal of the daughter of the pot ter and the last of the Diorix. In effect, Lydia was quickly reassured in seeing that no obstacle could further retard her happiness. She hastened to announce her victory to her father. She showed him the precious tablets, but refused to allow him to touch them, because, as she laugh ingly said, they were the property of her husband. Balbuo did not insist, telling him self that from the moment that his daughter had the tablets of the Diorix in her hands the secret could not long remain unknown. On his side, Xobert, dominated by his love, had easily stifled his remorse. Welcomed as a son by his rich neighbor, solitude no longer saddened his life. He had found in the house of Balbuo a new family. Happy, he said that his race had given emperors to the Ro man world and there were no longer oppres sors nor oppressed. The day has come for the betrothal ban quet. The factory of Balbuo holds festival. The workmen and the slaves have quifted the shops and the furnaces. Assembled in the vast courts beneath the venerable oaks, some drink the wine of the country, others sing and dance upon the green. In the spacious hall, with its marble walls and mosaic pavement, a circular table is sr rounded by the companions of Balbuo. Most of them wear the toga of white wool, bor dered with purple; others are covered with the Greek pallium embroidered with gold. Some Arvernes still preserve their national costume. Among them Xobert is distin guished by the brilliancy of his garmentsand the richness of his bracelets and collars. The women wear the peplum or the stole, secured at the shoulder by clasps of gold. Among them Lydia is remarkable for the simplicity of her robe of woven wool, fastened at one shoulder by a simple clasp, after the manner of the Gauls. The delicate attention has not escaped Xobert's notice. Thetableispompouslyserved. The meats smoke in silver dishes, by the side of rose hued vases ornamented with figures, contain ing multicolored apples and ruddy bunches of grapes. The flagons of iridescent glass, the amphoras, filled with Falernian and Ias sique, sparkle near the two handled bowls which contain the fermented liquors. The autumn sun flashes across this mass of ves sels, of precious vases, lingers about the colonnades of pink marble, and throws a ray unpon the smiling mouth of the bronze Mer cury upright upon a tripod of gold. Meanwhile the father of the family, to do honor to his future son-in-law, filled, follow ing the custom of the Gauls, a large cap with wine of Setia, put it to his lips, and passed it to his lgigbbor, paying: "May this beverage preserve your health." Thu cup circulated from hand to hand around the table, and the feast soon was at its height. A slight uneasiness at times, however, mod erated the hilarious joy of the revelers. it was when they spoke of the rapid march f the men of the north, who had invaded Gaul under command of Chrock, their king. The last couriers had reported themr as moving toward Lyons. Might they not then invade the country of the Bituriges, and even venture as far as Arverniel But it was thought prob able that ..Ly would descend toward the south by the nty of the Allobroges. This last opinon, more eeassring, obtained gen eral assent, and the repast went on joyously. As the feast was about to terminate Lydia, palo with emotion, approached Xobert, a cup in her hand. She presented it to him. imvino. '4Vm, enwe mhndh EA and mry mbr_ m IMam yourlattulswvans. . neyoug.g Arvernetook the cup, half emptied it,and returned it to Lydia. The girl carried it to her lips, butshe trembled so that she let it fall, and the up, withits beautifulrose glaze was broken upon the massic pavement Many of the guests considered this incident as of evil amen, but the emotion passed off and the feast was ended to the soami of the tibia and the Phrygian flute. Xobert and Lydia were betrothed aecord ing to the rites and customs of Arvenie. Their marriage was to be celebrated a few days later, following the prescriptions of the Roman law. The day following this joyous feast, the two lovers walked together in the neighbor ing forest. They exchanged soft words and tender looks, and formed athousand projects. Meanwhile, the watchers, signaling from hill to hill, had given notice of the appear .ace, at a great distance, of some bands of Germans. The news ran through the city, but with the carelessness of youth, the lovers believed themselvessheltered from all danger, and nothing troubled their serenity. They had arrived at the glade where they had exchanged their first vows. Lydia re called that it was also the place where the power of her charms had triumphed over Xobert, and had won from him his secret. She wished to seat herself upon the mossy bank which had been witness of theirpledges. The sun was disappearing below the horizon. The shades of the forest had a serene, almost sad aspect. The immense plain stretched itself away to the foot of the sinuous line of the blue mountains. Suddenly a somber and cold tint replaced the vanishing rays, and night had fallen. Their gaze turned at the same moment in the direction of Augusto-Nemetum. They saw some light clouds of smoke forming over the city. They thought it was only the autumn mist, which sometimes covered all the horizon, but the smoke became blacker and more dense, and great flames seemed to lick the foot of the mountains. Boon the central cone, where stood the temple of Mer cury, appeared to be on fire, and tongues of flame shot up against the sky as if a volcano had suddenly burst into eruption. Then only, they began to think of the warn ings of the watchers, and their hands met in mutual terror. Then only, Xobert remem bered his oath and his perjury. "O Lydia!" he cried, "the predictions of the Diorix are about to be fulfilled. How ever, it was not betraying my promisetocon. fide my secret to her who will be my well be loved spouse. Have you kept the precious tablets, or have you given them to your father?". "I am much to be blamed," replied Lydia. "The tablets were in my chamber, where no one penetrates, locked in a coffer of which I alone have the key. Each day I look atthem, as I think of you. Yesterday morning they had disappeared, and today I found them again in their accustomed place. Another has perhaps read the fatal secret. It is I who an the cause of the evil which menaces us. It is uponmyheadthatthethunder of Tarann should fall." "You divine head is dearer to me than life or glory. Do not distress yourself, you are not in the least culpable. And see, the fire seems to abate. It is probably only dry weeds burning over there on the mountains, as at the festival of the Luperca. Let us go home and dream of nothing but our hap pines." And, trying to reassure her, albeit not without fear himself, he conducted his be trothed to the house of Balbuo. Then, hav ing ascertained that nothing in the environs revealed the presence of the enemy, he re turned to his own dwelling. * * * * * * A numerous band of Germans, while their chief burned Augusto-Nemetum and the temple of Mercury Dumiatus, turned toward the plain. Having heard boasts of the wealth of Liusannum, they crossed the Allier, and, under cover of the night, surprised the sleep ing city. Xobert was awakened by a great tumult. He ascended the terrace of his house, and saw with horror t.e flames devouring the great city. Without delay he donned his war costume, seized his two edged ax, and hastened toward the dwelling of Balbuo. The place is already invaded by a troop of barbarians. He easily clears a passage for himself and reaches the vestibule. There he encounters a frightful spectacle. Balbuo and his sons are gory corpses. Lydia, almost nude, struggles in the midst of the soldiers, who are disputing over their prey. With uplifted ax, Xobert falls upon them. Many he stretches at his feet, the rest fly. Lydia, half dead, throws herself into his arms; he presse her to his heart. He thinks to flee with her, but he hears the ferocious cries of the conquerors, who surround the house. The light buildings of the pottery are already consumed, and the fire gains the principal edifice. There is no mean of escape. "I have violated my oath," cried Xobert. "The archdruid's prediction is fulfilled, but I die happy, since I die with you. O Lydia: my wife, I love you!" and for the last time his lips fervently press the lips of his be trothed. At this instant a cloud of smoke envelops them. Lydia utters a cry of horror, andthey disappear in the flames. Thus were annihilated the temple of Mer cury, whose ruins have since been partially uncovered onthe summit of the Puy-de-Dome, and the town of Liusannum, with numerous and wealthy cities. Thus were forever lost, not only the secret of the Diorix, but also the process of the marvelous glazing of the Gallo Roman potters, which is vainly sought for today. Such is the opinion of the wise Dr. Plicque, who has recently found upon a frag ment of pottery the ancient name of the town of Lezoux, and whose curious memoirs upon ceramics have thrown much light upon the obscure history of Arvernie in the Third century.-Translated for The Argonaut from the French of Gabriel Mare by T. F. Robert son. ANNEXATION OF CANADA. The Disastroua Attempt to Accomplish It by Force-A Famous Retreat. The present agitation concerning the relations between Canada and the United States recalls the time when the annexa tion of that country was proposed to be brought about by force of arms. The project was entrusted to the brave General Montgomery, assisted by the famous patriots, Colonels Ethan Allen and Seth Warner. While engaged in this invasion Ethan Allen was taken prisoner by the British and sent to Eng land, where he experienced very harsh treatment. It was Colonel Warner who twice con ducted his men safely home, though the march was constantly surrounded by dangers. Once Montgomery sent them home because their time was out, and though they were willing to continue in service, they were without sufficient clothing, and none could be had in that country. Colonel Warner had hardly arrived home before he heard that Montgomery had been killed, and the cause, as well as the lives of the men, were put in great jeopardy. He collected his men again and at once started for Canada to assist his countrymen in their extremity. But his efforts were of no avail, and it was soon found necessary to take up the line of retreat. It was the dead of winter, and only necessity sanctioned moving the troops. The terror of pursuit and the rigor of the season furnished sufficient cause for alarm and haste. Colonel Warner re mained with the rear of the army, and aided them in many ways most effec taally as he was a man well posted in caring for the sick and this knowledge now came into excellent use. He must keep the army in motion, not a day must be lost, and yet he was with out any chest of medicines. But he understood the medicinal use of roots and herbs, and of proper care at critical times, and with these allies, he made an effectual fight against disease among his men. When Ticonderoga was reached and the roll called, thanks to Seth Warner but few vacancies in the ranks appeared Col. Warner saved the lives of hun dreds of men in this way, and he did a noble work, but it remained for his namesake, II. H. Warner, head of Warner's tate Cure establishment, to give the same kind of remedies then used to the people of to-day, in ''Warner'. Log Cabin Remedies."' These remedies have been adopted after thorough trial and investigation, and they are remedies of established reputation. Being wholly vegetable, they can be used without any fear as to the results. Among the new remedies is a Sarsa iarilla for the blood, Hops and Bucihu for the stomach and digestion, -Cough and Consumption Remedy, Scalpine for the head and hair, Rose Cream for that terrible disease, catarrh, a Log Cabin Liver Pill, a Log Cabin Plaster and an Extract for internal and external use.
