She bad registered er name at a pretentious "employment agency" in tbe neighborhood, bnt as yet no crop of ladles in need of governesses or children' to. want of' Instruction m F encb, muaio and German had sprung up,: and now came tbe point-blank qoes lion. "The pos'man!" said Grace suddenly starting np "Run, Louise, quick, before be knock. Alfred must be kept quiet whatever happeus. What is it ? a letter for Alfred ?" Yes," said Louise. . "Opeu it, child ! See what is in it." Open Alfred's letter ? ' cried Louise in dismay. "Yes, of course. Didn't tbe doctor say that nothing must excite or disturb bimr ' I' s about some business, ol course, snd "perhaps it needs instant at teoiion. r , Thus urged Louise hesrtatingly tore open tbe letter. "It's from a Mr Townsend," she said; "a gentleman who is writing a bock. "Writing a book?" cried Grace, "and wbat on earth has that to di with A I fred?" "It's about French literature in the time of tbe first Napoleon,' went on Lou ise, "and the man wan s a lot of informs tlon from some unheard-of book in the public libraries here, and be can't come himself because be has sprained an ankle, and some one has mentioned to him the name of Alfred as a capable, cultivated and literary gentleman, whose services in completing a thing ol ibis nature would be invaluable. And be will be glad t remunerate Mr.' Fortescue at tbe rale ol a dollar a p.oefprall compilations con cerning tbe Napoleonic age of liteiature.' "A dollar a page!" exclaimed Grace with gleaming eyes; "and for doing the one thing that Alf likes best in all the world." "What are we to do?" asked Louise. "What can we do?" sighed poor Grace. "Write and tell him that Mr. Fortescue is confined to Ms bed snd thai the doctor thinks he cannot lenve it for several weeks, even under tbe roost fa vorable circumstances. Oh, desr! it seems wicked to let this high tide of for tune go by ns unimproved," "Grace," said Louise with a qnick breath, "it shall not pass us by. I'll do It mtself." "Y.u!" " "Why not I? Cannot I read French as well as Alf himself? Isn't mv band- writing big and bold enough for any man's?- I'll goo these big public libra ries" I'll do tbe compiling for this man." "But, Lou'88, do you believe yourself capable of It?" . Louise drew herself up with mock dig nity. "Do. I look like an impostor ?" said she. "Jast'wait and see. Give me a chance to build up my reputation ; and don't breathe a word ol this to Alf. One dollar! Our fortune is made!" .The next day sbe look her -way to tbe library, and calmly announced her busi ness to one o- the principles attending a silver-haired geotlemsn -who at once became interested in ber behalf,' v. He did his best to belpier, bnt it was a little pufc ng just at first She was not certain that she liked it, ' Her French was, perhaps, a little rusty, and she had never especially studied up what ber cor respondent called "the primo-Nipoleon- io age of liiera'nre. . But a she worked on daylight seemed to lirariiate her labors, a Dew In'elligence broke in upon' ber mind. Het pen set atched rapWly over the paper, a sort of method settled itself among the writ ings of M. de Tbts and Mme. de That, a d Louise began to be qn te sure that she liked it. ' . - She sent rff her work and Mr Towns end wrote back expressing te utmot satisfaction,. Mr, Fortescat's MSS., he said was far beyond his most -sanguine anticipations in clearness, Comprehen siveness and research. He did not know hut that the accident or the sprained an kle was likely to prove a tcally fortunate occurrence ; and better than all be enclos ed a check for a sum that seemed like a gold mine to the girls. . This was in March: when tbe May vi olets began to blossom in the carls of the 'lower-sellers,' snd "Prim-roses! Prim- ro-ses!" cried through tbe streets, Alf red was considered sufficiently convalescent to be told all these even's, and one after- j noon, sitting bv tbe window. Louise bad just began to say : "There s something we ve been saving to i ell you becauee " When Grace opened tbn door with somewhat of a puzeled face and announc ed : . . "Mr Townsend." t Enter a tall, line. looking gentleman who held out his band to the bewildered Alfred with the utmost courtesy. "Being unexpectedly summoned to this neighborhood," he said, "I could not deny myself the pleasure of ctlling to thank you for the vert scholarly and thorough manner in which you have car ried out my ideas respecting the Napo leonic era ot liters' ure, and I wish to be speak your co-operation in another and perhaps more comprehensive liteTary un dertaking which " "My dear sir," cried Alfred, I haven't the. least idea of what you are talk in? about.". cried Louise -Stirling A M. np.

My brother wus very ill with brain lever, and we didn'i dare to tell him, and I had been express ly educated, and read French readily so trtst " " . You don't tell me,' sid Mr, Towns- end, "that you wrote all those folios in that bold, running band, that you silted out the kernels from that mass of. his toric evidenced" Yes, I did," confessed poor Louise coloring to the very roots of ber balr, "I was just beginning to tell Alfred about it when you came in." And then, by way of estaniisuiag her character for strong roindednessrtheran out of the room and bid berser$.Be back of tbe kitchen floor among the pots and pans, , while in the little front room the two gentlemen were affiliating mar- velously and tbe pale young scholar was mapping out enough work to last six months at least. "And what I can't do mvself," said be with a sanguine smile, "I shall get my little sister lo do for me, for I begin to think she's several degrees more capable than I am. "Shall I have the pleasure of seeing her again before I go away r asked Mr, Townsend wistfully. "Call her, Grace," said Alfred. So Louise bad to come out from be hind tbe pots and pans again, and this time she became really well acquainted with Mr. Towsend. Things happen most unaccountably in the world. For example : In a few weeks Mr. Townsend discovered that it would accelerate the progress of bis work very much, indeed, if be could personally su perintend it. And be found himself com pelled to go over a great many of tbe folios with Mies Fort. scue. And one day they drifted into a topic of conver sation quite irrelavent to literature of any age whatever. And AUred, buried soul and spirit fn a pile of tomes in the window seat be tond, bad to be shaken briskly by tbe shoulders before be could be brought back into every day existence. Eh ?" said be laying down his Den. "Whit Is It?" 'My dear fellow, congratulate me !" cued Townsend radiantly. "Your sister has promised tn be ray wife !" - Alfred Foriescue was not particularly surprised. Your bookworm never is surprised at anything But Grace was "Well, I declare!" was her character is ic ix tarnation "Just wben I thought our affairs were most hopeless the dawn of good luck was at band."

A few fotks say be set in the ground and poles laid across, over which tbe straw from Ibe Uresbing machine may be piled,tbus forming warm sheds in which animate' may be protected from the enow, rain and wind ot the winter season. These straw sbeds can be built at tbe time of threshing with little or no trouble and expense Tbe improved condition of the stock from their better care will make it pay handsomely to do tbi, while every humane sentiment demands that our dumb servants 6hall be protected as fully as possible from every form of suffering. We are aware that much more atten tion is given now than formerly to the proper care or stock in our State.

Soldiers and sailors began to be mixed up on the ' hill where the regulars were massed. Rich colors blended and the hill changed its lints like a chameleon as tbe restless troops moved to and fro. cqusda of militiamen and their brothers in arms marched op to the tomb uncovered, looked in and trudged back to their places in the ranks. General Hancock s massive, soldierly figure stood out among tbe tbrong at tbe tomb and every minute an aide in gold lace galloped up to bim, delivered a message and again flashed down tbe glaring road. Tbe crowds besan to complain at the delay. Where was tbe funeral car? Why was tbe delay? What a s'giit to see such an assemblage move when it became restless ! Two carriages arrived. From one came mayor urace, specacien and per spiring, and from the other Comptroller Lowe and Adolpb L Sanger. The Po lice Commissioners, beaded bv G meral Fitz Jobn Porter, f dlowed. All grouped about the tomb and talked to General Hancock. A poor negro approached and took off bia bat. Tbe General waved back the soldiers from tbe iron door and the colored man entered tbe vault humbly, reverently. ' THE FCHERAL LINE AT LAST. Again the sailor with the red . flag spells a message to tbe gunners on tbe ships and the cannons roar their answer. A scarred zouave bears bis wire to tbe tomb and leada ber back to the edge i f (he crowd. N iw was heard the distant roll of drums, and instantly the whole square yawned wtb excitement. Hoi bps and riders, flags and standards were grouped in front ot the thick ranks of blue and yellow and scarlet and white that fell back with ripples of bayonets until tbe eye could see no further. NVarer and nearer came tbe drums and tbe lines of bayonets became straight and rigid.. "A cloud of dusi floated over the road. Tuen, at half-past four o'clock, a line of carriages came in view ss the pallbearers entered the ebtning, brilliant square. Tbey alighted and stood for a moment motionless. OLD FOEMEN LINKED TOO ETHER. General Sherman gave bis arm -to General Joe Johnston; G-ntral Sheri dan gave bis arm to General Bockner One moment all was pomp snd splendor. Tbe mxt a bush fell upon tbe scene as the soldiers who fought each other twen ty years before walked arm in arm to the tomb. A spirit of soilness began to steal into the picture. Through the air swelled tbe rich, sad chorus from under the bill, and suddenly tbe sombre funeral car came in view with a dark blue square uf musicians in front and a wall of bay onets on each side. Tbe sir throbbed with solemn baimony and all the troops presented arms. grant Comes to rest at riverside. As the car drew nearer tbe multitude uncovered. Tars stood in tbe eyes of the older men. A few knelt in the hot sand and bowed ibeir beads. Still in tbe liver tbe crash of tbe cannons made tbe air tremble. Rank afier rank if soldiers wheeled into the road behind the tomb and joined the silent, shining fields of color that covered tbe northern bill. Tbe long line of black horses that drew the car seemed to creep President CltVeland and Vice-President Hendiick were helped through the crowd to the door of tbe tomb just as tbe car baited.

Beyond tbem were the glittering troops, and in the river the war ships still thundering their salute. ..The band at the tomb was playing a seet dirge, and away over the bills came the chant ings of other bands mingled witb the dull beating of drums. Then tbe long Mine of veUians, white and black, lame and scarred, feeble and str n?. filed past the tomb with tattered b tttle fl .gs.

Although Roy was but fourteen years old, be was a great traveler. ' He bad crossed tbe Atlantic In calm and stormy weather, bad seen tbe great billows roll ing mountain bigb, and bad looked over tbe vast expanse of water when it was clear, smooth and blue as a lake. He, had visited a number of noted castles in Grest Britain. Westminster Hall and the Tower' of London, bad ridden up and down (be Champs Ely see in Paris, and visited the Tuilleries and Louvre In fact, .be bad seen many wonderful things, farapd wide. . - Tq ir here is ia conundrum, for JJWLsp lution. He had seen all of these things. and yet had never been more than a hun dred miles from his home in Troy, New York Impossible, yon say. No; it is as I say; snd he nad escaped a great deal of the weary labor which is usually involved in sight seeing. Now for the solution, as I. can not wait for yours. His father bad a fine library, ana, dis covering R ry's fondness for travel, tried to satisfy his longings in that direction as best be could, by giving bim books and portfolios of engravings. Then Roy had attended Prof. Stoddard's and Cromwell's lectures, and spent night af ter night in the very midst ofjEurope At school to-day he bad heard a pro fessor talking to the senior class, and be used this expression: "As horrible the Bastile." . "Bsstile, Bastile!" How the word kept ringing in Roy's ear all day. long ! "What was Ibe BastueT" His ratber never explained to him what he could find out for himself. .But. now be was in a quandary. He did not know where to begin his search. "Was it in Japan or Italy ? What was it?" Strange to say it never occurred to him to look in tbat wonder-book, the dictionary, which would have given the key to unlock tbe mystery. His mother was absent from home; so he bad to content himself with wsitini till bis father returned in the evening. To be sure, there was bis sis ter; but then well, girls never did know anything, except wbat von didn'i wish them to (Let me whisper aside to the girls tbat his sister only a week before had to write a composition about tbe Bastile In school. Her teacher bad read tbe class a short account of it and then obliged them to write in fifteen minutes all they could remembr. Clara had received the highest mark). Now I will tell you what Roy learned about the Bastile when bis father put bim on tbe right road, which road led neither to Janan nor Italy. ' Tbe word Bastile or 'Bastel was used in France to dtsignaie any fortification intended tn withstand a military force BoTWben tbe Bistileis spoken of now but one place is meant tbe great gloomy prison of Paris. - The building of the Bastile waa begun in the latter part of the fourteenth cen tury, during tbe leign of Charles V. and was not completed till many years after wvds. It stood on an island of tbe Seine, and consisted of four tall, round towers connected by thick walla with four other similar towers so as to form a rectangular building. In tbe center waa an open court, and there stood an immense clock which could be seen from tbe towers' windows. Tbe building was surrounded by a deep ditch which bad walls of solid mssonry and were filled with water when the Seine overflowed Charles V. did not intend tbe Bastile for a prison, but only as a piece of for 1 1 flea' ion It was not long however, be. fore it was put to that nse, and from the beginning of the reign of Louis XI. it was used altogether for tbat purpose. Tbe prisoners were always those who were supposed to be enemies of the Gov ernment, so tbat at different limea many illustrious and royal persons were con fined there. It was always an object of great ha tred to the Parisians, though not nsed as .a general prison, and did them little harm. 'But none were admitted' within its gates and everything was tarried on in such a mysterious manner that they pictured its horrors much worse than tbey really were So wben the revolu tlon of 1789 came one ot tbe first places attacked was tbe Bastile. Thousands of people rushed along the 8' reels crvlng "To the Bastile." "Down with tbe Bas tile " After storming its walls tor al most a day, those In charge were obliged to surrender. Tbe people rushed in, and the Bastile was soon no more. There are many curious and thrilling tales connected with tbe Bsstile. I can tell you but one. A man was confined there by the name of Li Tude. Some one in power, pitying bim in his loneli ness, obtained for him tbe privilege of a enmuanion by tbe name of Alegre. To getber tbey planned a way of escape. It was to climb to the top of the chimney and descend to tile flitch bv means of a rope This chimney was full of gratings and bars which must be loosened in or der lo make their ascent possible. From the top of the chimney to tbe ditch wa two hundred feet. They found that there was a space ot four feet between tbeir cell and the one below. A iter tear ing up a tile from the flooi,they conceal ed in there their toots and material aa fast as it was ready. Their principal tools were made from'the iron, clamps of their table and an old tin candlestick For six months -thev spent all tbeir time in raveling out all. their spare clo thinu and making it into a rope. The bars In the chimney were cemented, and the only way they ould be loosened was bv sQuirting water from their months into tbe holes as tbey bored. After reacting the ditch a ladder would be needed. This tbey made from tbeir fire wood. At last, alter eighteen months of hard labor, everything was ready. La Tude ascended the chimney with both arms and legs dripping blood. Wben be reached the top he let down a ball of twine, and by this drevr up a portman teau containing such things as wers needed for their decent. Then Alegre followed.. On the top of the tower they lied their ropa to a cannon, and by this La Tude, followed by bis companion, made bis descent. Think of them swing ing two hundred feet in the air with noth ing but a thin rope between them and death Terrible, indeed, roust bive be n life within tuu Bwtilo to make men-to desperate In crossing tbe ditch, tbey were obliged to bold tbeir beads under water to escape the notice of a passing sentry, and for nine hoors U aland ia water up to their waists and' dig a bola through tbe wall of tbe ditch. .
