gazed at her in surprise. "No my dear
ay little darling," said he in a toice ot
tremulous affection, "aot die—not die and
leave me alone.' He paced slowly back
and forth. The room was dim, the wind
whistled bitterly without A shadow crosse,

the dark curling treasei that hung over the

There she sat; the only link that bound ,
him to this changing world. His eyes j
jçrew moist. He went to her side and bend

kissed her dampened cheeks. "No child,
you must not die,—not (or the world. What
would life be to me my little darling with
out you—what? No, no, go take your rest,
and grieve not too much child. Rest will j
do you rood.' Marie was silent, but she
kissed Victor good night as she was wont

' the fair sleeper whobe breathing is heavy
and slow. It is Marie. The pale face aud
sunken eyes denote disease The dull hours j

no sound breaking the stillness except the
j ticking of the clock, and the labored !

white face. Her eyes open. "Does my
little darling wish anything? said he ten
I derly. "Nothing," she seid, locking up
into his face, a tender lovely light bright
aad strange, beaming from her eyes.
' Does my dear child feel better ?" aaked
, the affectionate old man as he kissed her.
"Yes, better, but weaker. I dreamed

lie turned his head to prevent the drop
ping tears from failing on her face. After
a long pause he turned and saw that her
eyes were closed again. He again resum
ed his silent vigil. Slowly the hours drag
ged alocg until at last, the morning sun
streamed through the window blind. All
nature seem fresh and chearfal without.
Victor was standing by the bedside whc-n
Marie open« 1 her eves. The old doctor
I called, and looked sadly upon the frail
figure, and gave an ominona shake of his
head. He departed, but before leaving
: the door he beckoned for Victor, and told
him that all hope was past. Poor Victor!
He returned to th« bedside; tears stealing
siifeatly down hia ridged cheek. a=i ha gazed
with a wild despairing longing look upon
the sweet pale features of his dear dying
Marie. All day he sat Night again* fell
; with silent sadness. Victor was s;i!l there,
watching tenderly, waiting lovingly upon
her. Eler eyes opened, and a light. strange,
radiant and celestial beamed from thtir
; depths. "Father. ' *ho said, "I feel so
; sranxe I will—soon be gone How—
j how dark it grow3 Father—I can see '
them—m other. Yoa- -will come—father j

The twilight a?ain gathers in Victor's '
co tage. His aged form is fce'ore the fire

"What does this mean Victor? I am j

for me; a soldiers corpse wiLI fill it" As '
he spoke teara streamed down hia cheeks '
He stood a moment, then 'drawing his 1
cloak around him. he said. "Victor remem- '
ber the grave. Farewell,'' and opening '
the door waa gone. Victor gazed as if in 1
a trance, but he had vanished. He went '
out, and peered into the darkness, but 1
nothing could he hear or see, Maurice had 8
gone. * J
Victor heard nothing more of Rochford ; s
only that be had returned to hia regiment '
which waa soon to advance into Spain j
He upraided himself for the manner in ; a

The grave of Marn which was by tUt j1
>f her mother, vu adorned with a aôat
ind beautiful tomb. Flowers bloomed
ibove the tittle mound beneath which
rested the fair decaying form. Victor re
membered the soldiers request and kept a I
place tor him bj her ride. On sunny
»1 terno:ns he would sit tor hours by the
?rass in reverie and meditation. He would
murmur to himself. "This is the grave of
Charlotte, my «rife; and here is the grave
of mv little Marie. Here ehalt be the
grave of Maurice, my soldier son,—yes my
Bon I will call him," and this," he would
add "will be Victora^rave. We. will all/
sleep together. "For hours he would sit
on a rude bench that he had constructed
and watch the graves in silence. One
evening as he returedand neared his house,
be saw a party of soldiers carrying a bier.
He met them at his gate. One advanced
aad saluted him, learning his name the
sold er said. "We are comrades of Maurice
Rochfort, who was killed in the last engage
ment. His last request was that he be
brought here and buried by the side of
Mile. Marie Morean He was an affec
tionate comrade and a brave sel lier, and
his reqcest was granted. Had he lived he
wouid have been promoted." Victor
listened in wonder, a peculiar look in his
aged eyes; his bent figure appeared togTow
mere erect "Ye«, I knew he would come
to me. When will.you bury him?" "At
once. We have been a long time on the
journey, and must return at once and re
port for duly."
' I will show you the place, follow me,''
BV.d Viclor, then muttering to himself, "my
flock is gathered, my work is done."
The soldiers again took up the bier, and
followed by of mournful villagers wended
their way to the grave yard. On the way
thither the officer in command told Victor
that Maurice had told him before be died
of the mystery coKcerning his supposed
death. He learned it alter his last visü to
Victor. Before the battle of Austerlitz,

We bad a slave within the house.
We loved him. and he served us well;
Around him would the children press
At eve, when rang the vesper beli.
At noon he waited on the board.
At night would light us to our rest,
And laugh, when loud the children sang,
<>r laugh in glee at idle jest.
One night a thief alarmed tho house;
It was our place, but Oh! how changed
He drove us out into the snow ;
Our halls and store-rooins swift lie ranged ;
Our gold, our jewels—all we had,
He snatched, this ruffian tierce and wild.
And, oh! Ilefore our eye« he seized
And cruelly .slew a little child. >1. A.

In the past few years there have been placed
in private residences a hah dozen bath
rooms that are veritably palatial. In fact, |
tue prevailing style of the b^th room of ;

those ot royal palaces, and particularly j
from the famous oue placed by Francis 1. j
in !ho chateau ot Chfnonceaux on the
Cher.
The chateau of Chenonceaux w tow the i
home of M. l>aniel Wilson, the son-in-lsw
of President Grevy, and the bath-room I
still remaiu8 one of the features ot the iu j
terior. The walls are covered with 6cnall j
bsvtiled mirrors, Bcarcely larger than u'
span Between these panels runs a sien !
cer line of gold, and at the intersection I (
hang metal drops like tears, and just Ion? [ i
enough to be reflected in the glass. The j |
effect is moat limpid ard brilliant, end the <
panels are sa »mall that ehe purpacs of a h
mirror are skillfully frustrated. The bath !,
is of solid silver, with the water issuing 11
Iroai swan's heads, which, with a mirror ! j
behind, products the illusion of swans on 11
the surface of the water. AH the other i
»ypointmenis are in keeping with this mog i
Dtficence, even to an ante room, whçre re- ! i
pose can be found with cigars after the j <
bath. 11
The famons bath-rcom in the palace of ! <
Fontainebleu was modelled after the Che- (

Marie Antoinette. The bath, it will be re j j

ind is just large enoogh for ils purposes. t

oom ot his sen. Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt p
The walU here are panelled with mirror?, b
icd on these are painted apple blossom?., s
'at by no means so thickly as to obscur* f»

he centre. The bath is a solid bloek of «
aar'ale, and the water issaes from swans,
a in that of the chateau of Chenoaceai*
ibove the bath is a nich with a marble

'ompeiian table of marble, beautifully I
arved, and a toilet adjoining of Ecallion

f the sky, aorosa which birds are skim

set in the floor, and ia reached by a de
cent of several steps. It is said that, ex
lusive of the artist's work, Mr. Marqaaad's
iath room cost $4,000.
Works of art art are considered nowhere
aore appropriate than in the bath room
ifhen their subjects are significant In that

norning gloriea twine. This design is
sainted on marble by means of an over

FISH-SPEARING THROUGH THE ICE
Winter Sjiort Among the Indians on Lake
Michiguu—lirigSit Indian Kravea Untie)
lilankets.
J. *>. Kooroach in sr. > n-AOi.
About thirty years ago, I was etrandec
by the severe winter weather, which put £
stop to navigation, at the old army statior
ot lireen Üay, no* a flouishing city in th»
great State of Wisconsin, at tie mouth o
the Fox river, at the southwestern extrem
ity of of long arm of Lake Mich gan. 1
had frequently noticed on Fox river t
cuiious lot of black dots on the ice, in th*
re'.ired nooks and cove's along the furthei
shore. "What are thej ?'' I asked; auc
the invariable rep'y was: ' They are In
dians fishing." This puzzled me still mere
and 1 resolved to investigate. So one daj
I crosied the frozen river, and approaching
one of thses mysterious black dote, fount
it to be apparently only a bundle in t
blanket, scarcely large eueugh to contain t
human form, lint looking closer, I coulc
8c«, first from one bundle and then iron
another, the quick motion of a pole oi
spear handle, bobbin/ up and do*n. A
word, n touch, even a gentle push, onli
called out a grunt in reptv, but at last ont
bundle did stretch itself into a bright younf
Indian brave with wondering and wonder
ful eyes peering at me from under a mop
of black and glossy hair. A little tobacco
h little pantomine, and a little broken Kug
lisb succeeded in making him uudt r«taii'J
that I wished to know ho* he carried or
nis fishing ut.der ihat funny heap.
Then I taw it all Seated, Turk fashion,
oti tnehordir cf hia blanket, which he could
th'iH draw up fo ns to entirely envelop him
eelf in it. he was completely in the dark,
fo fir as the daylight was concerned; and
thus enshrouded, he was hoveriug over 8
round hole iu the ioe, about eighteen inches
in ciaiuGter. A small tripod of birch stick«
erected ever the hole helped to hold up the
blanket arid steady a spear, which, with a
delicate handle nine or ten feet long, was
held in the righi hand, the lines resting on
the edge of the hole?, and the end of the
poie sticking through an opening in the
blanket ab)ve. From th** othtr hand,
propped into the wat«-r a string on the end
of which was a rude wooden decoy-fish
small enough to represent bait to the un
puspscting perch or pickerel which should
i-pv i'. This decoy was loaded so as to
pink Blowly, aud wa*so moved and mana-u
vred as to imitate the mo'ioa* of a living
fish.
Crawiing under the blanket with ray Iu
iian friend, I was surprised at the distinct
ness and beauty wi.ii which everything
could he reen by th» subdued light that
came up through the ice. The bottom of
the river, six or ei?ht feet below us, was
clearly visible, and eeemed barely four feet
awey. The griwes, vegetable growths
und\pots of prt.hly bottom formed curiouH
lit;Is vista" and recess**, in some of wbioh
dreamilv floated a school of prrch and
smaller fish. Lach little air-Vibble sparkled
like a gem. ar.d the eye delighted in tric
ing and wa'chirg the mystery of beautiful
wuter formations. wh^re ev>ry crevice
seemed a !«tt»e lairy world, with chatting
iights or shado*e, made by the sunlight
through the transparent ice.
Suddenly, from somewhere -1 oon'd not
(ell where, it seamed to cime by magic—a
targe ' dory." or "moon-eye i p'.k^," »pp'ar
ed on the river bottom. The watchtul Iu
dian slovrley raised the decov bait toward
the surface the larger fi-h followed it with
interested and puzzled eyes There was a
sudden movement of the spear; down it
darted; its sharp prongs pierced the unsus
pecting pike, which was speed ly drawn
un, and thrown wrigeliftp on the ica.
I'hen the blanket was readjusted, and th»*
fishing was resumed. My bright ycung
Indian friend said he could catch from
;w*üty fo thirty pounds of fish in an after
noon in this manner, and some imcscould
*ven scuiire double that number.

GOODS FOR SPRING.
Uauze« an ü Cottons to be W«rn in Warm
Weather.
Exquisite novelties are promised for the
April openings, bat merchats are rather
( riticent about them. Many of the choicest
dress materials are, however, ot American
1 mauiactare, and it is said they are really
wonderfal.
The cotton goods are very sheer and
thin. Batiste will be one of the most
popular of summer fabrics. There is a
fine grade of wool goods that is called wool
batiste, the threaJj ot which are rathtr
hard twisted, the fabric very evtn, with a
! perfect mesh. It exhibits the same style
i ot weaving as the cotton material.
Among summer fabrics is seen the most
lavish and effective display of embroidery
! on cotton materials. Some of these are
forty inches wide and two-thirds are cover
! ed with embroidery in contrasting colora,
i Brown on ecru, blue on black and red on
I black are all handsome and effective. A
; lovely piece in cream color shows an em
broidery of geen and garnet. Then* is an
immense variety in these goods and they
I trim moat beautifully. White embroideries
i on piuk and blue zephyr mull are really
i exquisite. Tbe designs are new, close and
j heavy, very little open work being seen in
; the tines: goods.
The new cotton-printed ^oods have a
I very new and altogether different look
: from those of othtr seasons. Foulard
sateens at very low pries flood the market,
i but foulard Bateens are not "hijli novel
: ties," to ose mercantile term (or that which
! is entirely new a complete drparture, as it
were, from previous ideas in form, color
and design. In tbe first place, the newest
cotton prints, invoiced under various names,
s-ioh as crocodile c'oth, boucle crape, Tork
| ii-h Bulgarian ann Algerian crape, are ali
crape finished or craps woven, have no
gloss on th^ir surface or stiffening ot starch
or gum in their fabric, and are intended to
be iaundri^d without being ironed, so as
to preserve this crinkled and crapy ap [
p?arance. They may be pressed or man-1
gled, but r.ot smoothed out with a hot iron
The design* are various, the figures are
small ar.d medium-tized, not large, in closs
set rather than involved patterns, and the
designs conventional for the most part or
not rigidly realistic, with Oriental, African,
I Egyptian, Moorish and meleia val ideas in
, singular but Rood combination. The
I artistis feeling has not dt-putrd from the
. French designer cf such good*, for most
of these poods are Freno'o, and, when Kog
lith, it is evident tbat French thought has
much to do with the patttrns.

t.iat i regard them as being superior to any 1
l..ive ever used or have seen used. I have not
Ii t<l tlfin constantly and had to try others.and
I have tried a (jo-sl variety, but I have never
had any to net 5» promptly, profitably, 4ml
n>ely ns MeLane'a. I have used them myself,
wife, and children. with the most enttih lug re
sults. For children. having used them ou my
own with such easy ULd happy effect, 1 would
recommend them to oce ana to all. These
pills do the w >rk—do it promptly, do it well,
and leave no HI effects behind. As a bile re
mover, as n liver corrector, as a forerunner
preparing the svitein tor quinine, there is no
«ill <>r medicine cjuaHo Dr. C. MeLane'sCele
fuateil l.iver Ulis. I expect to use them as
long as 1 live. If theyoOOiiauo as good as they
have beeu lu the past.
