"How did she get out?"
"Out of what?"
"The queen's closet."
"She was in the garden. She said
she went down the private stairway
to avoid the gendarme. She must have
done it cleverly, for she came in on the
arm of Junot, and the matter was not
noticed. There stood my emergency,
facing me again. You had deserted.
What made you imagine you were
threatened with arrest?"
"Because a gendarme In court dress
laid his hand on my shoulder and told
me I was to come with him."
"Well, you may have drawn the
secret police upon you. You had been
cutting a pretty figure. It was proba
bly wise to drop between walls and
get out of France. Do you know why
you were arrested?".
"I think the groundless charge would
have been an attack upon Napoleon."
"You never attacked the emperor."
"No, but I had every reason to be
lieve such a charge would be sworn
against me if I ever came to trial."
"Perhaps that silly dauphin story
leaked out in Paris. The emperor does
hate a Bourbon. But I thought you
had tricked me. And the old marquis

to go in and thank the emperor."
"You had to tell him?"
"I had to tell him."
"What did he say?'
"Not a word. All the blood seemed to
be drawn out of his veins, and his face
fell In. Then it burned red hot, and In
stead of good friend and benefactor I
saw myself a convict. His big, staring
blue eyes came out of a film like an
owl's and shot me through. I believe
he saw everything I ever did In my life
and my intentions about Eagle most
plainly of all. He bowed and wished
me good night and took her out of the

"He never let me see him again, or
her either. I am certain he forbade her
to communicate with us. They did not

to hold the estates. My messages were

have comforted her, and where I could
have made her life easy. lie probably
dragged her through depths of poverty
before they joined a company bound
for the Indiana territory, where the
Pigeon Roost settlement was planted.
I have seen old Saint-Michel work at
clearing, and can imagine the Marqjuis
de Ferrier sweating weakly while he
chopped trees. It is a satisfaction to
know they had Ernestine with them.
De Ferrier might have plowed with

er hesitated to make use of her."
While I had been living a monk's stu

De Chaumont dropped his head on
"It hurts me more than Icare to let
anybody but you know, Lazarre. If I
hadn't received that letter I should
have avoided you. I wish you had
saved Paul. I would adopt him."
"I think not, my dear count."
"Nonsense, boy! I wouldn't let you

"Ier husband has her. But let us

"I was afraid of you," said Do Chau
mont, "when you flowered out with
old Du Plessy like an heir lost in emi'
gration and found again. You were a
startling fellow, dropping on the Fau

"She never gave me reason to think
she would marry anybody. But what's
the use of groaning? There's distrac

troops on Champlain. I shall be long

le laughed, and so did I. We held
hands, clinging In fellowship.
"I might not have refused your ser'

The count's face darkened.
"'11 not abuse him, lie's dead."
"A Kickapoo is carrying his scalp.
Trust my runners. They have traced
him so much for me they know the
hair on his stubborn head. I must go
where I can have amusement, La.
zarre. This country is a young man's
country. I'm getting old. Adieu.
You're one of the y.oung men."
Some changes of light and darkness
passed over me, and the great anguish
of my wound Increased until there was
no rest. However, the next man who
risited me stood forth at the side of
the stretcher as Bellenger. I thought
I dreamed him, being light headed
with fever. He was unaccountably
weazened, robbed of juices and pow
dering to dust on the surface. His
mustache had grown again, and he
carried it over his ears In the ridicu
lous manner afrected when I saw him

"Do you still find clay that suits

"No, sire. I succeed in nothing."
"You succeed in tracking me."
He swam before my eyes, and I
pointed to the surgeon's camp chair.

"Have you lost your real dauphin?"
"I have the honor of standing before
the real dauphin."
"So you swore at Mittan."
"I perjured myself."
"Well, what are you doing now?"
"Sire, I am a man in failing health.
Before the end I have come to tell you
"Do you think you can do it?"
"Sire"- said Bellenger.
"Your king is Louis XVIII.," I re.
"He is not my king."
"Taken your pension away, has he?"
"I no longer receive anything from

"He was left in Europe."
"Look here, Bellerger. Why did you
treat me so? Dauphin or no dauphin,
what harm was I doing you?
"I thought a strong party was, be
hind you, and I knew there had been
double dealing with me. You repre
sented some invisible power tricking
me. I was beside myself and faced it
out in Mittau. I have been used
shamefully and thrown ailde when I
am failing. Hiding out in the hills
ruined my health."
"Let us get to facts, If you have
facts. Do you know anything about
"Who am I?"
"Louis XVIL of France."
"What proof can you give me?'
"First, sire, permit a man who has
been made a wretched tool to implore

climate before the rigors of a northern

said. "Why did I ever take you seri

and tipping in the river merely your
playfulness. You had better take your

you come to a warmer climate."
He wrung his hands with a gesture
that touched my natural softness to

A Sort of Temporary Paralysis That
Sometimes Affects Track Men.
"The numerous fatal accidents report
ed in the newspapers to rail layers that
occur every year on the various rail
road systems throughout the country
are not In every case due, as is gen
erally supposed by the public, to neg
ligence or carelessness on the part of
the workers themselves," said a New
York physician and surgeon einployed
by the New York Central railroad.
"The fact is, the hearing of these
men In time becomes affected owing
.to the constant stooping position which
they are obliged to assume in laying
the rails, putting the bolts in, etc., and
that renders them often oblivious to
approaching trains, notwithstanding
the fact that they work in gangs and
have lookout men near at hand. An
other fact which is accountable in
many instances for fatal accidents to
rail layers is what Is known among
the men themselves as 'engine tri'nce.'
This I might describe more clearly as
a temporary sort of paralysis which af
fects .simultaneously both the '.nind
and body. The 'stroke lasts oaly a
few seconds, but those few seconds
mean life or death when a fast train is
"A rail layer who may be ir perfect
physical condition is not proof against
the powerful fascination as be gazes
along the rails and sees sta engine
with Its row of cars coruing toward
him at express speed. Aithough he has
been warned by the lookout and the
shouts of his fellows of the approach
ing danger, he will pay no heed, but
stand spellbound for an instant. And
that instant's delay is generally fatal,
or, If not, it results in the amputation
of a leg.
"There are few rail layers who have
not, they will tell you, experienced this
peculiar trance at one time or another
during their careers on the track. Ani
mals are also subject to 'engine trance,'
particularly dogs and cats, and that no
doubt accounts to some extent for the
large number of them as well as other
animals that are killed on the railroad."

It was during the reading lesson in
One of our public schools that a little

The reading was so very poor that

would not talk that way to youir moth
"No'm," replied the lad.
"Well, now.," sai the~ teacher in a
