I know many poople may bo astonish
ed that anybody oould bo moved to pity
for the ferocious brute. Carrara, who
transformed his mushroom establish
ment into a crematory and had no mer
cy for the unfortunate young man, La
marra, whom be threw into the flro
after having murdered him for tho pur
pose of robbery. I know all thnt, and I
do not dispute the faot that tho Italian
was a monster, but that is no reason
^should not be disgustod at the
le whioh was presented to our
and whioh 1 will now endeavor to
^describe with the Impartiality of a sim
ple spectator, withont resontmcnt or
prejudice, but with a heart that rovolts
against a scene that has neither the
graudeur nor the majesty of a punish
ment inflioted, but rather exhibits the
cowardice'and baseness of a vengeance
which hides itself from tho light of day.
The exeoution was fixed for 4 o'clock
In the morning, but from the hour of
midnight the neighborhood of the
Grande Roquette was swarming with
au undulating and luookiug crowd.
^Jailbirds, murderers, footpads and worn
'en of the streets assembled thoro to sue,
as they said, "the Italian animal short
ened.
Journalists were admitted into the
narrow space so often described, with
its five sinister stones and its legendary
gas jot whioh is never lighted except on
the evoning before au execution.
There in tho raiu we watched the set
ting up of that horrible machine which.
according to the legend, Oagliostro
showed in a glass of clear water to tin
terrified Marie Antoinotto. Iu tho yel
low and spectral light of the gas jet
that fiiokered iu the wind theso prepa
rations were hideous to witnoss. Al
most on a level with tho ground stands
the scaffold with its two arms in tho
-air brandishing tho sparkling knifo.
And I, a woman, in tho presence of
these preparations, oould nut help think
ing of the family of tho wretch whoso
.head was soon to fall into the basket. I
-thought of his little ohildreu, who were
at that moment sleeping soundly sorno
where, and of his wife, equally guilty
-with him, and who, as it were, pushed
Jier husband into tho arms of the execu
tioner as a last resort to savo herself.
'What remorse will be hers when they
-tell her abruptly: "Oarrara has suffered
'his punishment. Yon area widow 1"
But the day was dawning, and the
Ifrinps were going out. At the windows
^nd even on the roofs numbers of speo
-tators were gathered as if to witness
.some carnival. The sight was heart
sending. Mounted gendarmes and soi

SCENE OF HORROR.

SLAUGHTERING A CRIMINAL BY THE
GUILLOTINE IN PARIS.
A Womaa'i Dencriptlon of the Shock
Ins' Spectacle That Alwayti Attracts
l»e Ontcasts of the French Capital*
After the Pearfnl Knife Ila« Fallen*
In tbeso rnahing times wo might take
for our motto "Something Now, Al
ways Something Now.'' Consequently,
1 imagine that tho impressions of a
womaii at tho foot of the guillotine
would not be commonplaco. I was pros*
ent at one performance in tho Plaoe do
la Roqaofeto, where M. do Paris and his
assistants ofticiatod in the name of so
called justice. Tho horrible spectacle
haunts and racks tho miud and tends
rather to re-enforce tho partisans of the
abolition of oapital punishment The
horror of the puniahmont imposed ren
ders a guilty man almost worthy of
pity. Tho sight of a human being,
dragged like a beast to the slaughter
house, up even to tho sinister seesaw,

There was some little commotion

The Uolden Gray Ere.
I might pile Ossa upon Polion in sua
way of description of gray eyes oalled
from fiotion. There is, however, ene
typo of gray eyo whose appearance in
story 1 have not yet noted, sa^B Nina
Allen iu Lippincott'B.
Wo have had gray eyes which "»e
seni bled nothing so muoh as moM
agutes." Sea gray eyes are not uuoom
mon. Amelie Rives has bestowed upon
llva, iu "Ths Witness of the Son,"
groat violet gray eyos, "like rain wash
id amethysts," while Mr. Paul Leioea
Jer Ford has reoently iutroduoed us to a
pair of slato colored eyes.
But at the present writing I have yet
to meet with golden gray eyes in no
tion. They are to be found, however,
in nature, the most luminous of all'
eyes, I think, tho iris about the edge a
soft old gold or golden brown, gradually
melting toward the pupil into a warm
gray. This lovely color I have seen in
the eyeB of a dog and of a ohild—tha
oyos of tho dog wisftul, appealing, pa
thetic with unutterable things the
ohild's speaking of soul aa yet undark
ened by shades of the prison house and
splendid with tho light that never was
on Boa or land.
To tho noveliBt desiring something
new in eyes I would respectfully reoom
mend the golden gray.
Verdi und the Priest.
Verdi, when a boy, had a gift for
.Latin, and the village priest aavieed
him to beoome a priest Meanwhile the
lad became an offloo boy in Bareud's
wholesale grocery store, and for a little
over $7 a year played the organ in the
OhnafrjttJMBMk IWlMM fry II Ifefc
is
Verdi said shyly that he had brought
no mnsio with him that day and had
been improvising. "801 played aa I
felt," said he.
'Ah I" exolaimed Seletti. "I advised
you wrongly. Yon must be no priest,
but a musician."
After that the way was easier. The
priestly Influenoe on hiB side opened
many a door to him.—Youth's Com
panion.
DELAUNAY'S SAO FATE.
A Presentiment of Ilia Death That
Waa Strangely Fulfilled.
Delaunay, the director of the Paris
observatory, was on* of the most kindly
and attractive men I ever met, says
Professor Simon New comb in The At
lantic). I found it hopeless to expeot
that he would ever visit America, be
cause be assured me that ho did not
dare to venture on the ocean. The only
voyage be had ever made was across the
ohannel to receive a gold medal of the
Soyal Astronomical society tor his
work.

I believe, his brother,

pavements covered with blood, the gory
knife, the blood spurting from the de
capitated trunk, tho ignominious wash
ing at the nearby fountuin and the gut
ters rolling to tho sewer a purple color
ed mud, in order to be able to compre
hend all tho horrors of an exeoution in
Paris.—Exchange
The sad fate of Delaunay waa not ex
aotly a case of this kind, yet it could
not but bring it to mind. He was at
Oherbourg in the autumn of 1878.
Walking on the shorn with a relative,
a oouple of boatmen invited them to
take a sail. Through what inducement
Delannay was led to forget his feais
will never be known. All we know is
that he ventured Into the boat, that it
was struok by a sodden tQuall when at
some distance from the buid, and that
all the members of the party were
drowned.

played the organ. The priest was struck
with the unusual beauty of the music,
and ut the close of the service expressed
a desire to see the organist. Verdi ap
