A famous wizard was Jean Pierre Levallee, who was believed to be able to control the elements and got up a storm with neatness and dis patch on the shortest notice. An old legend has it that when all Canada was in dread in the early portion of the last century over the approach of the mighty expedition which had put out from Bos ton under the command of Sir Hovenden Walker, Levallee declared that he alone could destroy the British'fleet, and that his countrymen need be under no apdre- I hensions. lie built a little hut on the shore, and for three days and nights, it in said, he carriep on a series of unheard of incantations. At midnight of the third day a terrible storm arose, which swept entirely over the northern portion of the continent, and in that storm the British fleet was scattered to the winds with terrible lose of life, while no harm whatever was done to the Canadian coasts. The records of history do not tally with the island legend. but it is still firmly believed that Levallee raised the storm which destroyed the fleet, and saved the colony to France. Shreveport Standard: A friend, ani mated by a laudable desireto relievo our ignorance, informs us that the Radicals call the Democrats "Bourbons" because somebody (whose name he had forgot ten) once said that the Bourbons learn nothing and forget nothing. This is in deed somewhat like the Democrats. They will never forget the glories which crowned the Republic during the sixty years' almost uninterrupted reign of the u Democratic party, nor will they ever learn to rob and plunder the peopla, un dr er pretense of governing them. as the Radieals have invariably done, both in Federal and State governments, ever since their accession to power. The maddest man in Nebraska is a saloon keeper at Lincoln. lie had been h buying lottery tickets, and some loafers "put up a job" on hini by lpublishing a p fictitious telegram in the local paper n that the number held by him had drawn a A15,000 prize. His bar was free for the entire day, and all the lotfers in town got druuk at his expense. It was a very difficult matter to convince him that he had not drawn the prize, so strong was his faith in newspapers, but he will never again believe a word he sees in print.

C "I have a mind to put up a job on your he client, Truesdell," said Charlie Monier to w his law partner, Sam Norton. p( "I have observed that you were be- re coming demoralized lately, but did not R h suppose you would be ready to sell out a client," replied Norton. "Let us know, n ;e however, what the job is, and if that has d. any innocent look perhaps I will go in d for chances and shares." a re. Allen Truesdell,against whom this plot was forming, had been in the hands of T those laavyers only a few weeks. He had ii lately come from another part of the I a State, and had been buyingthrough them a a valuable paper mill property, located on the river a few miles below the".ity. t hMonier & Norton had been his attorneys I on the transaction, and had realized a handsome professional fee. In connec- e tion with that business there had also been some collateral transactions a - through which an overdue mortgage of a eleven thousand dollars had come into a the hands of their client. The property tat held by the mortgage was a handsome I homestead belonging to a widow lady, I Mrs. Trowbridge, young--or at least not I en more than thirty-two-and a very beai e tiful woman. at Mr. Truesdell had not yet seen the r re property or its owner. The miortgage e had been taken on the assurance of I t his attorneys that the security was ample. ;he The lady's deceased husband, Charles 4 h Trowbridge, had died suddenly three , years before, and left considerable real estate ettin a badly entangled condition. dHe had been a bold, ambitious operator, Sand not very prudent; made new pur an chases continually with money raised by ot mortgaging anything on which a mort s gage could be placed, until even the ed family residence, the property of his d wife, had, by her consent, reluctantly obtained, becamue involved to the extent of more than half its real value. ni- Mrs. Trowbridge had one child living, ur her little boy, lluby, now six years old, al and for his sake she had been doing her se utmost to save what she could of the ot- property her husband had left, and she ra managed so successfiully thus far that n- when a sale was inevitable she hadbeen ,ts. able to effectit herself, and not leave ich that ceremony to be performed by the tv sheriff: te The reader has probably suspected by er this time that the job those lawyers were in- preparing to put on their client was not the lkely tobe very serious or damaging, ill they had learned from incidental remarks er of his, that he had been a widower for several years, and had a small family oe two little daughters and his youngest a sister, also a maiden aunt of his deceased eu wife, who was managing his family af fairs, but not in a very satisfactory way. cr "The Trowbridge property," said Mr. it Monier to his partner, 'will just suit our the client for a residence, and the right and r easy way for him to get it will be for he him to bid it in under a foreclosure sale, as and then dispossess the widow." "A charming idea," said Norton, "but of course he must see the property in the first place and determine how much he "I will be willing to give for it." get "Mrs. Trowbridge, I believe "' all; A graceful bow was the lady's answer; ""' and the visitor added: "Mr. Truesdell." fae "I am pleased to see you, Mr. Traes- no dell," said the widow, as with, a motion del of the hand she invited him to resume sot the seat from which he had arisen on her an' entering. we "I have called, madam, to look at this ' property, which I understand is for bri s'ale," said the gentleman. Mr "Yes, sir; I will show you the proper ty with much pleasure. But I must first an ask you to excuse me for a few minutes. My little boy will entertain you until I pr return," and Ruby came forward with Mc ready confidence and signified his will- wl ingness to make himself agreeable. "a "I hope you will buy our place, sir,' pa he said, as they were alone. "If my pa dear papa had lived we would have kept yo it, but now mamma says we can not." "How long has your papa been dead" In "Three years sir. Did tpou ever see q my father f" "No, dear child. I have been living more than a hundred miles from here ag and have made no acquaintances in this th vicinity until lately," the visitor an ye swered smiling. "Mamahas told me of some cousins of ye papa's that I have never seen, and di when I first looked at you I thought you nc might be one ofthem, because it seems at to me you look like my papa. He had th side whishers, just like you have, and pi his hair was of the same color, and he was about about as large as you. Herd SI is his picture," and he pointed to a very is fine oil painting on the opposite wall. cc Mr. Trnesdell was standing before the picture, studying it with much interest, m when. Mrs Trowbridge returned and an- el nounced that he might now see the r house and grounds. An hour or more le .o was spent in this way, affording an op- di portunity for such casual and incidental a- remarks as the occasion called for. a: >t Ruby was one of the party, of course. a "Is this little boy your only child, madam ?" asked Mrs. Truesdell. F ºs The only oie living. I have lost two ti n dear little girls, one younger than Ruby P and the other two years older." ti At "I have two little girls," said Mr. of Truesdell, "and had one boy, who, if n Ad living, would be about the age of yours. l le He died about three years ago, immedi m ately after the death of his mother." 1 .d "Don't you think, mamma, this gen y. tleman looks like papa !" interposed ys Ruby. a "Well, yes, a little, perhaps," answer- c c- ed the mother, smiling. 1 "so I am much pleased with the general J us appearance of the property, madam," t of said Mr. Truesdell, "and may see you t to again in regard to it." I ty "You probably know, sir," said Mrs. 8 ne Trowbridge, "that my interest is less y, than half the real value. A mortgage, ot now overdue, holds the larger share." I - Mr. Truesdell did not intimate that he had lately become the owner of the he mortgage, but simply remarked that if e he concluded to buy the property the f mortgage would give her no further as trouble. 1 "I wish you would buy this house and les come here to live, and let mamma and ame live here too," said Ruby, looking 1l up wistfully'into the face of Mr. Trues n. dell and at the same time grasping his I r, hand. r- If the mother could have got hold of y the boy at that moment she would have t- given him an impressive shake, but he ie was on the other side of Mr. Truesdell, s and any attempt to stop him with words ty might lead to something worse, so she nt simply remafked: "I have several other pieces of prop g, erty, some of which I have been trying ld, to dispose of, with the hope of saving Icr this, bhlitthe best bids, thus far, have he been very low." she "Are those pieces of property also at encumbered ?" en "Yes, sir, every one, more or less. re The property that my husband held was the rising in nominal value when those mortgages were put on, and he thought by he could carry them safely, but a reac re tion came, and now my interest in prop ot erty on which he placed a high value g, amounts to but little." rks "Your experience, madam, has been or like many thousands," said Mr. Trues ot dell. "But you are bfortunate in having st even a little left. I will have some ed conversation with my attorneys, Monier af- and Norton, in regard to this property, ay. and will probably call again in a few Mr. days. Good day, madam, good-bye, ur Ruby." "Good-by!" responded the lit ad tle fellow. "Do come and see mamma for and me again. I want to see you, you le, look so much like my papa. Don't you want to see Mr. Truesdlell, again, but mamma 7" the "Certainly,my dear," sald his mother. "I shall be mushn peased to hive the gentleman call." The lady and tefteman thus canu ally meeting, had inoldenitly Ond aiOo fYosi unavoidably learned certain leldh g facts in regard to each other. Of course of no remark designed to be in the leapt degree suggestive of any sppcial or tper: to sonal interest had been made b'y ether ID and yet the circumstances themelves were suggestive. "Well, how did you like the Trowi. rr bridge property, Mr. Truesdellt" asked Mr. Monier, as his client retruned. t "A very handsome place," was his answer. "And we shall commence foreclosure 100 proceedings immediately f" asked Mr. Monier, with a sly wink at his partner, ow which was noticed by Mr. Truesdell; of "The dispossession of the present och pant will be simple and easy, and that ph part of the business we will turn over to an Os you." "It is not necessary to make any cost at in that direction just now," was the to' quiet but significant answer. ho "I am so glad that you have come again !" exclaimed Ruby bounding into an the parlor, "I told mamma I knew you would come." "Yes, my boy, I have come to look at m f your mamma's house once more ;," but. he I did not tell master Ruby that this wps th n not his second, nor even his third call, o o and that his mother had probably no; 1i thought it necessary to invite him to be nC Li present on every occasion. "Don't you wan't to see mamma, toot s She will be here in a few minutes. She is fixing up a little more before she YI comes iP." 8f e Unfortunately for Ruby, the last re- to mark was heard by his mother who was ) entering the parlor at the time, The boy was soon on his way out, -e led by a servant, but the outrage was duly resented. 1 "My mamma shan't treat me this way b . after you come here to dlive, shall she, Mr. Truesdell t" was his parting shot. "I would like to know, mamma," said s' Ruby one day, about six weeks after t] "o this incident, "why can't I stay in the y parlor when Mr. Truesdell comes to e' to talk to you about buying our house. "Never mind, my dear," said his u i mother; "perhaps he will not buy the a . house, after all" "Will he ever come to live here, and f let us live here too f and be my papa a . and you be his wife f" ed "Yes, my darling boy," clasping her a darling child to her heart. Two hours a r. only had passed since that engagement had been sealed with a ring in which a al glowing ruby had been set. In a rap ture' of joy Mrs. Trowbridge explained ou to her child as well as she could, the meaning of the ring and of the precious s. stone he found there. e, "Mr. Monier would like to speak to Mrs. Trowbridge a moment, was pen at ciled on a card that was handed to the he widow. if "Nothing wrong, I hope," was the he thought that startled the lady for an in er stant. The marriage ceremony was $o take place next morning, and it was nd now half-past eight in the evening. Her I nd prospective husband had leftjher half ug an hour before, and she was puzzled to e- conjecture what reason his lawyer could I is have for calling just then. "I have called, madam," said Mr. Mo of nier, "to hand you this document, re which is, as you see, a release of the he mortgage on your property." 11, "Why how is this ?" said the lady in ds surprise. "Has Mr. Trueedell 'paid off he this mortgage ," "Mr. Truesdell has been owner of the P- mortgage, madam, for several months, ng having purchased it through us, before ng he became acquaitted with you. In ve order to restore to you the full and ab solute ownership of the property in the so easiest and most direct way, he has, by our advice, executed this release while *5 you were still Mrs Trowbridge." as "A name, sir, that I always thought se it an honor to bear, but now other emo ht tions fill my heart. If you report to Mr. c- Truesdell that you have left me in tears P- please tell him they were not tears of ne sorrow, but of the deepest gratitude. Good night." en Mrs. Trowbridge became Mrs. Trues es- dell at 10 A. M. next day. ing "And so this is the way you dispos e sess the widow,"' said Mr. Monier as ier soon he could get near enough to his ty, client, after the ceremony, to whisper a ew word in his ear."
