Mary NwrKn Lradf ml in D'st-n Cil h.
The fivo lMtlicrs lived with Louis. m,
three thile fron I'.oiti.ic. mid Medallion
came to know them Hist thnoisrh h ivin:
fold tliem at un auction a slice of an ad
joininyr farm. Ho had Won iinited to
their Lome, intimacy had tfmwn, and aft
rrward, l:aviti a severe illness, lie had
Wen taken into the household and kept
tin-re till lie was well a'ain. The Iii'ht of
his arrival Lniiisuii. the sister, stund with
u hrotln-r in either hand. Octave and Flu
nan, and received him with 11 courtesy more
stately than Usual, an expression of tho re
serve and modesty of her single state.
This maidenly dignity was at all times
shielded hy tho live brothers, who treated
her with a constant and reverential cour
tesy. There was something signally siig
peMive In their homage, and Medallion con
cluded at last that It was paid not only to
the sister, hut to something thut gavo her
great importance in their eyes.
He puzzlM long and finally decided that
Louison had a romance. There was some
thing In tho way they said " I tits? Loui
son," In the way they avoided all gossip re
garding marriages and marriago fonsting,
lu the way they defeml to her on a ques
tion of etiquotto in married life as, for
Instance, should tho eldest child W given
the family uaniH of the wife or a Christian
name from hor husband' family which
suggested It. And P'tlte Lotiison's opin
ion was accepted Instantly as linal, with
triumphant and sat i lied nods on the part
of all tho brothers, ami with whisHrs of
"How clever! How adorable! saich beau
ty!" P'tite Iouison affected never to hear
these; remarks, but looked complacently
straight before her, stirring the ,pn.in in
her cup, or benignly passed the bread and
butter. She was quite aware rf the ado
ration In which she was held, and she grace
fully accepted the fact that she was an ob
Jiut of interest.
Medallion had in it tho heart to laugh at
tho homage of the brothers, nor at the out
landish sister, for, though she was angular
and sallow and thin, and her hands were
largo and red, there was a something deep
In her eyes, a curious quality in her car
riage which commanded respect, She had
ruled these brothers, had been worshiped
by them for nearly half a century, and tho
romance they hail kept alive had produced
a grotesque .sort of truth and beauty in tho
admiring "P'tite Louison," an affection
ate name for her greatness, like "the Lit
tle Corporal" for Napoleon. She was not
little either, but about the middle height,
and her hair was well streaked with gray.
Her 111 inner toward Medallion was not
marked by any affectation. She was
friendly In a kind. Impersonal way, much
as a nurse cares for a patient, and she nev
er relaxed a sort of old fashioned courtesy,
which might have been trying In such
close quarters, were It not for the real sim
plicity of the life and the spirit and light
ness of their race. One night Florian
there were Florian and Octave and Felix
and Isidore and Fmili the eldest, drew
him aside from the others, and they walk
ed together by the river. Florian' air sug
ge.steil confidence and niy.stery, and soon,
with a voire of hushed suggestion, he told
Medallion the romance of P'tlte Louison.
And cah of the brothers at different times
during the next two weeks did the same,
differing sfjircelyat all in details or choice
of phrase or meaning, and not at all in
general facts and e-cntinls. Hut each, aa
lie ended, made a different exclamation.
"Viola! so sad. so wonderful ! She keeps
the riii-r dear P'tite Louison!" said Fl j
rian, the eldest
"Alors! she gives him a legacy in Wr
will .wivt P'tite Loiii-011. " said O -tavc.
"Mii! the governor and the cardinal
admire her P'tite Louison !" said Felix,
nodding conlidi-ntly at Medallion.
" Ilici' ymt should see the linen and the
et t it oats !" said Isidore, the humorous
on.' i f the family. "He was great she
was an angt 1 P'tite Louison joll!"
"Attends' what loe! what hlstoryl
what passion t he pel iei t P t iie Louison !"
cried Kmile, the youngest, the most senti
mental "Ah. Moliere!" lie added as if
calling on the master to rise and Mng the
plories of this daughter of romance. Isi
dore's tale was after this fa-hion:
"I vcr' well remember the lirst of it,
and the last of it who can tell? He was
an actor ah. so droll, that. Tall, vcr'
smart, and he pla In theatcrat Montreal.
It Is in the winter. P'tlte Louison visit
Montreal. Hie walk pat tho theater ami
ns she go by she slip on the snow and fall.
Oai lrom a door with a jump come MVieu
Hadrian, and jock her up. And when he
see t ho pretty tace of P'tite Louison, his
eyes go nil lire and he tla.-p her hand to
" ' Mademoiselle! Mademoiselle !' he say,
'we must meet again !'
"she thank Mm and hurry away quick.
Next day sh,. Is skating, and she try to do
the daf.ee of the I5!ue Fox upon the lv.
While she do it, some one come up swift
and catch la r hand and say, 'Mademoi
selle, let's d- it together' iike that. It
take her breath away. It is M'shu
Hadrian. He now seem like the other
men she know, but he have a sharp look,
he is smooth in the faeeaud ho smile kind
like a woman P'tile Louison, she give
him her hand, and they run away, and
eu ry one stop to look. It isa grand sight.
He laugh and his teeth shine and the
ladii s say things of him. and he tell P'tite
Louison that she look vcr" line and walk
like a quern. Iam I here t hat day and I
see all, and I think it damn good. I say,
'That P'tite louison, she beat thctn all'
I am only 2 years old then. When he
leae he give her two seats for the theater
and we go. Hy gosh, that is grand thing
that play, and M'shu Hadrian, he Isa
princo; ami when lie say to his mlnUter,
'Hut, no, rny lord, I will marry out of hit
state and win .n my heart go, not as tie
state wills,' he look down nt P'titfl
Louison and she. gi all red, ami some of
the women look at In r. and there Is
whisper all around.
" Ncx' da- 'ie come to the houe when
We Stay, bill the Mire voine ;;..) j.ntty
soon an.l tell her she must go homo. And
fo we come o it home Well, what do you
think! Nex' day M'si.o; Hadrian come,
too, and we have damn good iioc Florian.
Octave, Felix, Kmile, they all -it and say:
' Pcrfaiteinent I' 'CI!' Ci!' lo him all the
tiluu Holy, what line stories he tell'
And he talk about P tile Louison, and his
tycs get wet, and Kmile say his prayers to
him by gosh, yes. I think.
"Well, at last, what you guess M'slou
he come and come, and last one day he
say that he leave Montreal and go to New
York, where he get ft good place in a big
theater. His time in Montreal Is finish.
"So he speak to Florian, and he say ho
want to marry P'tite Louison, and he say.
of course that he is not marry and lie have
money. Hut he Is a Protestau". and the
cure at first vcr' mad, by gosh I Hut at
last, when he give a bunder dollars to the
church, the cure say yes All happy that
way for while. P'tite Louison he get
ready quick holy, what fine things had
,he, and It Is all to bo done In a week,
while the theater In New York wait for
M'sieu And he sit there with us. and
play on the fiddle, and sing songs, and act
plays, and help Florian in the barn, and
Octave to mend the fence, and the cure lis
the grapevines on his wall. And he show
me and Kmile how to play sword sticks,
and he pick flowers and fetch them to
P'tite Louison and show ln-r how to make
an omelet and n salad like the chef of
Lou's (luine hotel, so he sav. Uy gosh,
what a good time we have, but first one
and then another, he get a sob In his
throat when ho think that P'tite Louison
go to leave us, and the more we try the
more we are damn fools. And that P'tito
Louison, she kiss us every one and say to
M'sieu Hadrian, 'Charles, I love you, but
I cannot go.' He laugh at her and say,
'Viola, we will take them all with us.'
That night a thing happen. The euro
come, and he look vcr' mad. and he frown,
and he say to M'sieu Hadrian before us all,
M'sieu, you are married!'
"Hy gohh, that P'tite Louison get pain
like snow, and we all stand round her
close and wiy to her, quick, 'Courage,
P'tlte Louison.' M'sieu Hadrian then
look at the priest and said; 'No, M'sieu, I
was married ten years ago. My wife
drink and go wrong, and I get a divorce.
I am free like the wind.'
" 'You are not free.' the euro say quick.
'Once married, married till death. The
church cannot marry you again, and I
command Louison to give you up.'
"P'tito Louison stand like stone. M'slou
turn to her. 'What shall it bo, Louisour'
ho say. 'You will come with me.'
" 'Klssme, Charles,' she say, 'ami tell
me goodby till till you are free.'
"He look like a madman. 'Kls mo
once, Charles,' she say, 'and let ine go.'
"And become to her and kiss her on the
lips once, and ho say: 'Louison, como with
me. I will never give you up.'
"She draw back to Florian. 'Good
by, Charles,' she say. 'I will wait as
long as you will. Mother of (iod! how
hard It is to do right!' she say, and then
fehe turn and leave the room.
"M'sieu Hadrian, he givo a long sigh
'It was my one chance,' he say. 'Now the
devil take It all. Then he nod and say to
tho cure: 'We'll thrash this out at judg
ment day, M'sieu. I'll meet you there
you and the woman that spoiled mo.'
"He turn to Florian and the rest of us
and shake hands, and say: 'Tako cam of
Louison. Thank you. Goodby.' Then
he start toward the door and stumble, for
ho look sick. 'Give me a drink,' ho say
and begin to cough a little a queer sort
of rattle. Florian give him a big drink,
and ho toss it off. 'Thank you,' ho say
and start again, and we see him walk over
tho hill ver' slow, ami ho never come back 1
But every year there comes from New
York a box of flowers, and every year
P'tlte Louison send him a 'Mercl, Charles,
Iiiilles fois. Dieu te garde.' It is so
every year for 25 year."

eyes religiously. "Waiting for judgment
day and P'tlte Louison," he answered.
"Dead!" tried Medallion. "How lung?"
"Hut the flowers tho flowers?"
"He left word for them to be sent just
the same. The daughter, tho child of the
other woman, send them."
Medallion took off Ids hat reverently as
if a soul were passing from the world, but
It was only P'tite Louison going out into
"she thinks him living." ho asked
"Yes, we have 110 heart to tell her.
And then he wish it so. And tho llowers
"Why did ho wish it. so?"
Isidore mused awhile. "Who can tell.
Perhaps a whim. He was a great actor
ah, yes. sublime "' he said.
Medallion did tint reply, but walked
slowly down to where P'tite Louison was
picking berries. His hat was still off.
"Let toe help you, mademoiselle." he
said softly. And hencctVrth he was as
foolish as her brothers. M. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A Prolonged Flash.
A simple and cheap mode of making n
continuous llashlight, or electric torch, Is
described by a correspondent in the Phila
delphia Kccord. His reservoir is a small
vial. Its cork Is fitted with two tubus,
one reaching to the bottom of the fluid to
receive air blown in through the lamp, or
from a pair of bellows, while the other,
starting from near the top, carries out the
jet of magnesium powder blown through
the lirst. Into the cork Is let a ring of
wire, rolled round with cotton wool or
tow, placed at the top of a wire rod at
tached to cork. The tow or wool is satu
rated with methylated spirit and ignited,
and the jet of magnesium powder Is con
veyed by the exit cylinder just through
the ritig of lire, ami thus continuously
Ignited. He finds the apparatus both use
ful and effective.
