The Last Stroke of Fortune. Twenty years ago an old house was still standing in Cologne, which showed to the street a frontage con taining ttve small windows. It was the house in which the first painter of the Flemish school,the immortal Rue h.bens, was born A. D. 157(3. Sixty years later than this date the ground floor was occupied by two old people, a shoemaker and his wife. The upper story, which was usually let to lodg ers, was empty at the time we write of. Two lodgers, however, occupied the garret. The evening was cold and wet, and the shoemaker and his wife were sitting together in the room be low. "You had better go up stairs again," said the old man to his wife, ''and see how the old lady is. The old gentle man went out early and has not been in since. Has she not taken any thing?" "It is only half an hour since I was upstairs, and he had not come in. I took her some broth tit noon, but she hardly touched it, and I was up again at three; she was asleep then, and at five she said she would not waut any thing more." "Poor lady! This time of the year, and neither fire or warm clothes, and not even a decent bed to he on, and yet I am sure she is something or other. Have you noticed the respect with which the old gentleman treats her?" "If she wants for anything it is her own fault. That ring she wears on her finger would get the best of every thing." Then came a knock at the door, and the old woman admitted the old man they had just spoken of,whose grizzled beard fell down upon the tarnished velvet coat. The hostess sadly wanted to have a little gossip with him, but he passed by, and bidding a short "good-night," his way up the steep aud crooked stair-case. On entering the chamber above, a feeble voice in quired the cause of his long absence. "I could not help it," he said. "I have been copying manuscript, and as I was ou my way here a servaut stopped me, who desired me to raise the horoscope of two ladies who were passing through the town; they were ladies whom I had known beJ'ore. I thought I could get a little money to pay for some supplies that will be of service to you." "I am cold." "It is very cold. I will make you something which you mnst take di-, rectly." The flame of a small tin lamp suf ficed to heat the water, and the pa tient, having taken what the old mao provided, was carefnlly covered up by him with all the clothes and articles of dress he could find. He stood by her motionless till he perceived that she was fast asleep, and indeed, long after; he then retired to a small closet and sought repose on the hard floor. The next morning the lady was so much better that her attendant pro posed that she should endeavor to leave the house for a little while, and lie succecuca iv gciUii£ lici to us far as the Place Saint (jecena. It was seldom that she left the house, for, notwithstanding the meanness of her dress, there was that about her car riage which rendered it difficult to avoid unpleasant observation. "Do you see that person yonder ?" she said suddenly. "If I am not much mistaken, it is the Duke of Guise." "Parbleu!" said he; "why this is Mascali. What, are you married?" Mascall had, however, whispered a single word in the Duke's ear, and he started as if struck by a thunderbolt; but instantly recovering himself, he hastily took off his liat and bowed nearly to the ground, " I beg forgiveness," said he; "but my eyes are grown so weak and I could so little expect to have the honor of meeting you—" "For the love of God," interrupted the lady hastily, "name me not here. A title would too strangely contrast with my present circumstances. Have you been long in Cologne ?" "Three days' lamon my way from Italy. I took refuge here when our common enemy drove me forth and confiscated all my earthly goods. I am going to Brussels." "And what are your advices from France ? Is the helm still in the hands of that wretched caitiff?" " He is in the zenith of his power." " See, my Lord Duke, your fortunes and my own are much alike. You, the son of a man who. had he not too much despised danger, might well have set the crown on his own head; and I, once the queen of the mightiest nation in the universe—and now both of us alike —adieu," she said sullenly, and drawing herself up, "the sight of you, my Lord Duke, has refreshed me much, and I pray that for tune may once more smile upon your steps." "Permit me to attend your majesty to—" A slight color tinged the lady's fea tures as she answered with a gentle commanding voice: "Leave us, my Lord Duke; it is our pleasure." Guise bowed low, and taking the lady's hand, he pressed|it reverently to his lips. At the corner of the street he met some one, to whom he pointed out the old lady, and then has tened away. The next morning a knock at the door announced a person who was in quiring for Monsieur Mascali; he had a small package for him, and also a billet. Inside of this was writ ten: "Two hundred louis dor consti tute the whole of my present fortune; one hundred I send for your use. Guise." And the package contained a hun dred louis dor. The sum thus obtained was suffi cient to supply the wants of the pair for two long years; but the last louis dor had been changed, and the lady and her companion are still without friendly succor. The shoemaker and his wife had undertaken a journey to Aix-la-Chapellee, to take up some small legacy. It was the 13th of Feb ruary, 1032. A low sound of moaning might have been heard issuing from a garret; a withered form, more like a skeleton than a thing of flesh and blood, was lying on a wretched bed of straw in tlie agonies of death. The moans grew more and more distinct; a slight rattle in the throat was at length the only audible sound, aud this also ceased. An hour later an old man, dressed in rags and tatters, en tered the chamber! But one word had escaped bis Hps as he stumbled up the rickety staircase,"Nothing, nothing!" He drew near the bed listlessly, but in a moment lie seized the arms of the corpse with a convulsive mo tion, and letting it suddenly fall, he cried: "Dead! dead! of auagar,oold and starvation!" And this lady was Mary of Medicis, wife of Henry IV., Queen Regent of France, mother of Louis XII.; of Isa bella, Queen of Spain; of Henrietta, Queen of England; of Christianna, Duchess of Savoy; of Caston, Duke of Orleans —dead of hunger, cold and misery; and Louis Xlll.,the cowardly tool of Richelieu, his mother's mur derer, is still called "the Just."
