On a cold and rainy morning in
March, 18—, a young man might have
been MeQ sauntering leisurely tip the
Boulevard Sebastopol. He was about
twenty-four years of age, with a frank,
ingenuous face, and his costume,
though elegant, was almost eoquet
tishiy simple. Arriving at the upper
end of the Rue del Lombards, he stop
ped suddenly and respectfully raided
Ids hat. A sombre hearse came slowly
down the street and crossed ehe boule
vard. On the threadbare and discol
ored pall which was thrown across tlie
bier not a Uower or the slightest token
of remembrance. Alone, with moist
eye, hanging head and muddy to his
middle, followed sadly a spaniel, look
ing the picture of desolation. At sight
of thil moving spectacle the young
man shuddered and murmured sadly:
"Shall it be said that there is not a
Christian man capable of following
the example of this dog? What an
unfeeling world! 1 will follow the
poor, abandoned one; it shall not be
said he was buried without a prayer,"
and stepping into the muddy street he
took a place by the faithful and last
friend of the dead.
The dog turned his head and looked
inquiringly at the new coiner, then
falling back a little." he walked with
him, looking up at him from time to
time with his soft brown eyes. They
arrived thus at the place of burial.
The grave-diggers in a hardened and
indifferent manner took the coffin on
their*shoulders, muttering At the same
time maledictions upon the rain and
the bad road leading to the grave. At
the side of this frightful gaping hole,
surrounded by the thrown-up earth,
the dog stopped, posed himself across
it, stretched his paws, and raising his
head, uttered a long, dismal howl.
The young man, already much
moved by the desolate surroundiin i of
the place, shuddered, and, carried
iiYrny by lhif» t'eelinpa, cried : " CHopI
This'is horrible. Is there no means of
depositing these remains in a more
decent place than that." and with a
trembling hand be pointed at the hole
where the just aud unjust are thrown
pell-mell, to the great grief of the poor
friends of tlie departed who have no
means of buying a spot of that earth
which God made for all.
"Bah!" growled one of the men,
there or elsewhere,it is all tlie same to
us!" "Citizen," said the other scent
ing a windfall, "if you can pay it can
be arranged, though this person is
hardly worth the trouble."
"It is well," laid the young man;
"wait for me while I speak to tho su
They placed the coffin upon the
ground and seated themselves Upon it
with the most philosophical indiffer
ence. The dog following witli his
eyes upon his new friend, until he
was hidden from his view by the
tombs-of tlie cemetery, when, as if
fancying that his master's remains
were quite abandoned, he recom
menced howling; theu went and laid
his head upon the coffin regardless of
tlie men who vainly 7 endeavored to
drive him oil. An hour later, the sad
ceremony of interment was finished,
and the poor dead reposed in six feet
of earth, decorated with a black cross.
After having commended to God the
soul of the departed, the young man
arose and called the dog. "Come,"
lie said, passing his hand softly over
his wet head, "the day lias been well
spent! Come, my poor friend, thy fi
delity lias been recompensed; come, I
adopt thee, and sometimes we will
come togetnerto visit thy old master,
I promise thee!" And, as if he com
prehended these words, the dog raised
ins head, looked at him intelligently,
gave a joyous bound, and having lick
ed his hand trotted on before him.
Master and dog returned by the Ave
And here a word of tlie hero of this
little story. The young man, whom
we shall designate as Leon Varens, is
a painter, whose talents ure too well
known to render a eulogy of them at
ail necessary. He had several years
before the period of which we are
writing adopted an artistic career, to
the very pinnacle of which his father
had arrived long before ids death.
Educated under tlie supervision of a
pious and good mother, lie had so
profited by her counsels und example
as to have retained the purity of his
heart and action in the midst of the
dissolute artist life of Paris. (Jay,
frank, and enthusiastic in all that
was beautiful and good wherevor he
encountered, he had formed him to he
—good, truthful and brave. Living
alone, he labored assidiously in his
studio in spite of the ridicule of
his young friends, who knowing him
to be rich sneered at his industry,
ignoring the fact that it had pre
served him from tlie temptations to
which an artist, young, rich, and
handsome, is always subjected. His
atelier was decorated witli sweet and
precious souvenirs of a beloved moth
er, and with many of his father's cfief
d'auvrcs— objects of respectful pride,
examples of glory to be acquired.
To return to our two friends of the
Boulevrad Sebastopol. Arrived at the
corner of the street Aux Ours, before
a high house of sombre appearance
the dog stopped and refused to pro
"Well, will you come?'' said Jieon,
falling buck a little after having
whistled and called in vain. "Come,
come, we are not yet at home." But
as lie heard not, though always look
ing at Wm, the dog went and came—
entering the dark corridor of the
house, oomiug out again, and looking
in a provoking way at his new mas
"This is singular," said Leon.
"What is the matter with him, afler
having followed me so well? But it
was here, or near here, that I'met
him; perhaps this is the house of his
old master, We will see." Aud he
followed the dog, who sprang briskly
up a dark and crooked stairway.
But animal very soon discovered
that, notwithstanding his willingness,
it was not possible for him to ascend
as rapidly as himself ; so, stopping at
the landing-place, he wagged his tail
aud gave little joyous yelps as if to
encourage him, then recommenced
his guidance to the upper story, where
he waited in a dark hallway between
two opposite doors ; one of these he
pushed open with nis muzzle and pre
sented to the artist a piteous spectacle.
On a pallet covered with rags an old
woman, wasted and wan, and seem
ingly in the last coti.viilsioiis of agony,
and Hear her a boy of ten years, sob
bing, on his knees. In a far corner of
the chamber; upon the floor, was a
bed of straw, which still preserved the
print of a human form. Upon a poor
broken table, covered with a white
handkerchief, stood before an image
of the Virgin a brass Christ, surround
ed by glasses of artificial flowers and
two candlesticks, in one of which was
still smoking the wick of a wax can
dle. No other furniture; nothing but
some ragged garments hanging here
antl there on the walls of the desolate
chamber. With a bound the dog
threw himself upon the boy and al
most devoured him with* caresses,
while the little fellow put his arms
about his neck and sobbed as if his
heart would break.
"Ah, Mouton, it is over them! And
now God is taking from us my grand
mother, we shall be all alone. She
says we must die, too!"
" No, no! indeed you shall not die!"
interrupted Leon, much moved. *'"\Ve
are here, your friend Mouton and I, to
The child started at the stranger's
voice and looked Inquiringly at Leon,
whom he had not noticed until now.
The sick woman slowly raised her
head anil looked at the stranger, then
at her grandson, and endeavored to
speak, but her voice was so feeble she
could scarcely articulate.
Leon approached her and leaning
over said, softly: "I come to bring you
Tlie woman's eye lighted up for a
moment, then, witb an almost super
human effort, she said: "Speak! but—
who sent you to us ?"
Leon pointed to the Christ upon the
table: "He who cares for all His crea
tures. F>>r His sake Providence
watches over your child!"
Then he told Jier of his adventure
with Mouton, and of his fidelity.
She rallied a little and said, "Ah,
sir, I thank you!" and she tried, with
a hand fast growing cold .in tleath, to
press that of her benefactor, who asked,
"What can I do for you?"
"Me, nothing; for'him, much. He
will be alone and friendless," aud her
filmy eyes rested sadly on the weeping
boy. She stretched forth her trem
bling arms, into which the child threw
himself, sobbing wildly. "My
child! my joy! I am going! God bless
Leon placed the little fellow upon
his knees by the bed, then laying his
hand tenderly upon his head, he said
to the dying: "I promise, madame,
always to protect your child."
A ray of divine peace passed over
her face; she could not spoak, but
ulaced her hands on the heads piously
bent over her, which were soon raised
with the blessings of heaven and of the
departed soul upon them.
There was in the exhibition of 1870
a work of art representing an atelier
in which a boy of twelve or thirteen
years, handsomely and tastefully at
tired, smiles upon his teacher, under
whose supervision he is spiritedly
sketching a model very solemnly
posed upon a velvet cushion. The boy
is the adopted son of our hero, Leon
Varens, and his best scholar. The
model is our friend Mouton —Mouton,
plump, glossy and curly; unrecogniz
able physically, but morally un
changed.— Translated from the French.
Patrick Malony went to his priest
and asked him, "What is a meracle,
your riverence ?" The priest asked
him several questions, and found he
had been to the revival meetings and
heard strange talk. He was mighty
mad, and, felling Paddy to stand out
before him, he gave the poor fellow a
tremendous kick in the rear. "Did it
hurt you?" asked the priest. "To be
sure it did," says Paddy. "And it
would be a miracle if it didn't," re
plied his reverance ; with which Pad

arrived the boys began to chaff' him.
"Why didn't you stay?" Just then a
man came along. Both eyes were
swelled up as big as boxing-gloves and
both «f his arms were in a sling.
