CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10, 1875.
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
"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
"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
"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
"If she wants for anything it is her
own fault. That ring she wears on
her finger would get the best of every
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-,
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
"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
"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
"Permit me to attend your majesty
A slight color tinged the lady's fea
tures as she answered with a gentle
"Leave us, my Lord Duke; it is our
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
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
"Two hundred louis dor consti
tute the whole of my present fortune;
one hundred I send for your use.
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
"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."
