Some Recollections of a Remarkable Woman. A writer in a Paris newspaper has given the following sketch of a remark able woman, one not yet forgotten in America : "In these days, as now, Paris allowed itself to be taken in by adventur esses. There was one of the latter who appeared one day and turned the heads of all the viveuta of the boulevard, who were so hard to please. I allude to Lola Montez. She was indeed a curious char acter. She was born in Seville, and was 22 years of age when, in 1841, she came, to dance in Paris. Lola Montez was a charming person. There was about her an indescribable, attractive volupta ousness. She had a white skin, flow ing hair like shoots of honeysuckle, clear and mild-looking eyes, and a mouth that can only be compared to a budding pomegranate. Add to these a slender waist, chanring feet and perfect grace; but as a dancer she had no talent When she was very young she married an En glish officer, who took her to Calcutta. Becoming tired of that place, she ran away, returned to England and after wards to Spain, and after many esca pade came to Paris, guided by her star, which told her that she would make a fortune if she did so. She secured an engagement at the Porte Saint Martin, where she danced the cachuca. The people went to see her, not on account of her talents, but because of her original style of beauty. She lived in grand style, and, having many friends ainong the journalists, was often mentioned in the oaily press. She used to appear in places of public resort in the most eccentric toilets, which she wore with a style that was peculiar to herself. She was bv no means an ordi; nary personage. About 1845 the writer of these lines saw a great deal of her. She proposed to him to write her me moirs, and furnished him with notes for that purpose. She was born in 1823 at Seville, having a French army officer for her godfather and the city of Seville for her godmother. She related to me that one evening at a ball in Calcutta she refused to waltz with a gentleman who was thickly covered over with dia monds. On .the individual asking her the reason for her refusal, she replied: * I cannot dance with you because you hurt my foot this evening.’ He was her chiropodist or corn doctor. Every one remembers the abrupt manner in which she left Paris to go and turn the head of the King of Bavaria, to have herself created Countess Lonsfleld and to overturn the Bavarian Ministry. She was tiie cause of a revolution. Mounted on a horse she made head against the ri oters and horsewhipped the gendarmes. Finally right triumph* d, and the King forced the too-flery Spanish woman to leave his kingdom. ".She was mixed up in the unfortu nate duel in wldch Dujarier, the busi ness manager of the Presse, was killed. This duel took place the 4th of March, 1845. Dujarier fought with M. de Beauvallon, received a ball in his face, and died in a few hours. When he was brought home to his apartment in the Bue Lafltte a woman threw herself on the dead body and covered it with kisses. It was Lulu Montez. The fu neral took place from Notre Dame de Lorette. The pall-bearers were Alexan dre Dumas, Balzac, Mery and Emile de Girardin. The last-named pronounced quite a catholic, apostolic and romantic discourse at the grave. Ido not pre tend to give the exact cacoe of this duel. It was asserted that it originated in a quarrel over cards which took place be tween’ Dujarier and Beauvallon alter a supper at the restaurant of the Trois Freres-Provenceaux, over which Mile. Lieven, an actress at the Vaudeville, presided. The cause of the duel was very tririal, but nevertheless the seconds were unable to arrange matters so as to prevent it. A will was found in Dnja rier’s desk, in which he said ; * Being about to light a duel on the most trivial and absurd grounds, I bequeath.’ etc. Ainong the legacies was one of eighteen shares of the Palais Boyal Theater to Lola Montes. The dad gave rise to s suit, and Beauvallon warn convicted of murder. Among the witnesses were Alexandre Dumas and Lola Mantes. The latter appeared In deep mourning. Her fine black eyes were even, darker than her black lace, but her testimony waa unimportant.” " Ohs of the first duties of s commu nity,” says Mayor Means, of Cincinnati, in an interview, " is to protect ita youth —protect the boys first, and they wall protect the girls/ Duma potatoes is a greet industry in Rochester, N.

"I am very rich, my darling,” she said softly, punctuating her sentences with soft, warm kisses. "Already I have SIOO,OOO worth of 4 per cents reg istered in my name, and when the leaves are turning red in the golden October days and the fields are laughing in the rich abundance of a bountiful harvest, I shall out off the coupons. And when papa dies he will leave me nearly $200,- 000 more. Yes, my sweetheart, lam a very happy girl,” and a fair young head nestled confidingly on the shoulder of the strong limbed, hazel-eyed young man to whom this avowal was made. He looked tenderly down at the brown treeses and the invisible net that bound them to the fair forehead. Gently lift ing the beautiful face to his, he pressed a passionate kiss on the full, red lips that seemed only made for osculation. Turning his head away, Herbert Ams leigh appeared for a moment to be wrapped in thought Then, kissing Mir iam with a rich, warm, two-i'or-a-quarter kiss, be said: "Du you love me, Birdie ?” She gave answer by placing her soft, white arms around his nock, and throw ing herself madly on his shirt front "Do not hug so hard, darling, ’an you love me, or my collar-stud will raise a carbuncle on the bock of my n ok,” he said in low, mellow tones. " It is only the deep, passionate long ing of my love, Herbert It recks not of carbuncles. But you are right Too much pressure on the cervical vertebra will cause an exostosis. My Professor of Anatomy told me that.” " And we will be married in the fall, my sweet?” "Yes, Herbert, in the rich, hazv, sens uous days of Indian summer, when the low note of the farmer’s boy seeking the lost cow is heard as he sits on the fine embowered stile and blasphemes until the firefly leaves for a cooler spot You must take all my money, Herbert; it must be yours to do as you will with it; to attain glorious fame that awaits you, for I know that my love’s name will some day be known through the length and breadth of the land, tiurely, you have an ambition ?” " I have,” said Herbert, kissing her while she caught her breath. "And you wiil not let any false pride stand in the wav of using my money to attain thu height you fain would reach?”- "No, darling, I will not. You say you have SIOO,OOO in 4 per cents. It is enough. To-morrow I will act, and in less than a day my name will be as familiar throughout the world as that of En gland a proud Queen.” “ Oh, Herbert, what will you do ?” " I shall purchase Maud B. ” Two minutes later a human form fell with a dull thud on the trout porch of the haughty pork-packer s residence. It waa Herbert Amsleigh. The old man had fired him out. —Chicago Trib une. " When Shall We Three Meet Again!” Early in the history of New England, efforts were made to win the Indian to Christianity. Thu Governor of Massa chusetts appointed ministers to carry the gospel to the red men. That was the time when the "Apostle to the In dians,” John Eliot, was a minister at Roxbury. He became interested in the welfare of the Indians, and devoted himself to the work of preaching to and teaching them. Borne few of the In diana became preachers, among the most noted at a later period being Sam uel Occam, who visited England, com posed poetry and waa called "the jhdian Whitefield.” Several hymns, composed by Indians, were used in the churches, the beat known being that beginning " When shall we three meet again?” It is said to have been composed by three Indiana at the planting of a memorial pine on leaving Dartmouth College, where they had been receiving a Christian education. One stanza is given: Wfcao the draanu of Ufa an fled. When it* we.ted leaipe ere deed.
