THE -BOCK ISLAND AUG US. Fill DAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1888.
15 THE SEA. The word of the rooetrst songs, and t0 nog, That strong and delicious word which, creeping to my feet. The sea whispered me. -Walt Whitman. JIM NO. 1 AND JIM NO. 2. "It la true, 11 Roger, if ever yon should do anything evil to Jim I should hate you, and I'd never forthve you, never, never!" And Mile. Armande Plapnollee nonchalantly threw herself back in her chair and passed her taper finder with caressing gentleness across the lustrous and downy skin of Mas ter Jim, The cata superb cat, let black from head to tail, bo black that in certain lights his fur gave out metallic reflections purred louder and louder, stretched out his paws, of a pearlish white, and blinked at Roger in a way that seemed to say: "Try it, my friend; try it; you'll get the worst of it certainl" Not at all alarmed by the threat and the wicked look in Jim's eyes, M. Koger de Oramont responded hypocritically: "Evil to Jiml Never! What made you think Itr And he, too, advanced his hand to stroke the cat, perfidiously hoping, of course, to touch instead the fingers of its beautiful mistress. And she was pretty, truly, adorably pretty, this Mile. Armande de Plaguolles; a demi monde with red-brown hair, curling and twisting into the most enchanting waves; rather tall, neither fat nor lean, and with eyes oi astonishing depth and color. Roger de Ornmont, on his side, was good looking, accomplished, well built, broad shouldered, with limbs supple and vigorous. Roger advanced his hand, as I've told von. and Jim received it, not with the dignity you would expect from the throne he occupied, but with a masterly stroke of his claw that opened the flesh to the bone and made tne blood fly. 'Ihe miserahlo beast!" cried the roans man indignantly, for once unable to repress r,ne trutn. The property of the De Graraont family was considerably larger than the chateau, or villa, rather, of the Plagnolles estate, and stood In a yk$ park rolling and wooded, and with an extended view of the Seine. Roger was wronjirlii laughing at Armando on ac count of her passion for Jim, for he himself was bringing up with jealous care, in a dis tant corner of this same park, inclovd with hih trellises, a colony of pheasants of every country, form and tint. It was a mania with him and which he had taken to his heart with all a collector's ardent passion, and a veritable delight it was to him to conceal himself behind a thicUet of juniper trees in that well hedged corner and watch the move ments of his beautiful lady Hnmersts with their variegated raffs, or his Veneres with their brilliant colors. And there is nothing to laugh at, 1 assure you, in this little craze of my hero, Roger, for I, as well as every one ele, knew that the rest of his manias were not a whit less respectable than this. The morning following his visit to Plag nolles and Jim, as be was preparing to make his usual call on his pheasants, the keeper stood before him, cap in hand. -Monsieur Roger," he said, "they got another one last night; I found the feathers along the paling!'1 hat ; crit-'d Roger angrily, "another of rav pheasant last night! See here, La Bran che. this won't du! Whom do you suspect nowf5. The keeper shook his head. "Nobody, sir, but Pich'iu," sai l he; "it couldn't be any one else, I icaoti's the worst and the most suc cessful poart er in thy country." '-But thr of them three of them in four davs: continue. 1 De Gramont -Thanks to Piehou, sir," persisted the guard; "Pifbou's got 'em certain, sir; he biwars has.1 The evening of the same day peace was de clared between the two lovers. Roger re turned in an excellent humor, only to find himself the next morning in a violent rage thev hail gotten a fourth pneasant; more than that, two of his handsome cocks were wounded m the wing and left behind them as thv walked a trail of blood. HapT-en again f Not much, if he could help it: and though it was as dark as Egypt, as it had bfen for four nights past, Roger installed himself in ambush with his gun charged with tne heaviest nA$. The wait was lon:r; two hours rolled them selves into three, then three into four, and the vnung man was beginning to consign to the devil ali the pheasants as well as ail the poachers m the world, when a singular noise, a sntt metallic clicking, set him trembling. "Njinethnig,'' he said to himself, "some thing light as a sylph is climbing the treliis:" ant I. as well as Le could for the darkness, be ! aimed and fired, mid was answered by a cat erwauhne. tiered, prolonged, lugubrious, suc ceeded tv the rattle of death. -IriXKi." he i!!y!Ttrfd; '"it wasa't Ticnou at all. but a thievish cat. He's done for, at any rate!1 and h continued to waitl not luii. however, for summer nights are short and fleeting, and already a bluish haze upon the horizon announced the dawn. A few minutes later a clear lih penetrate 1 the leaves, and there in th-i middle of a thicket ot rose trees Ror perceived the body of his victim. It wa& big, it was black very black; his heart lent quickly; he foresaw, he di vined, the catastrophe. He approached liaiiiv. No more doubt about it; it was Jim. the adore I Jim, the "cherished pet," shot in tue nuil.Utj of the head cold and life less. tteli,r murmured Roger, contemplating him ruetuliy, "a beautiful mess I've made of it; and to run to the tool house, seize and re turn with a spadu was the work of an in ftant: five minutes more and Jim reposed at peace beueath the earth forever. tt hen M. de Gramont made his usual even ing call at I'lannlies t ho house was in com motion, every Uxly from cook to chamber maid, valet and stable boy vainly seeking Jim: and the parents were wild with fright, fur Armande herself was dissolved in hyster ical tears. Ah: she-cried at sight of Roger, happy to hold in her hand at last one whom she could make into a fellow sufferer; "it is you, is lU You, who will be delighted to hear of it you. who have never been able to endure him:' And immediately there was anew quarrel on the carpet, in which, as Roger was decidt dly epres and guiltily unhappy, ho got the worst of it. Armande worried him ferociously, going to the length of declar ing that tnl Jim always Jim was found she did not even care to see him that is, unless he would promise to hunt for Jim, in which case she would promise to recompense him. After a morning visit, more unfortunate still than the evening one, Roger told himself that something must be done; the situation was simply uneiidurahle. He ran to the sta tion, boarded a train, arrived at Paris, and an hour later, at the shop of M. Al , a merchant who dealt in birds, dogs and divers other animals, among them a cat a superb cat- black all over, claws white, eyes yellow; in short, Jim's twin iu every particular, linger had no time to watfte in explanations. 'liow inuclw '' taid Le, standing before it delightedly. Une hundred francs, monsieur," replied the merchant. In a basket, hermetically closed and tied, he carried away his purchase, regained the train, and then Maissons as soon as poet Je, Truly, ho had done well! Jim was re stored Jim No. 8; everything would be right now with that pretty creature, Armande, whom, truly, he adored! and thinking thus, as mht had come, be approached the villa. Not a soul was to be seen. He seized bis burden by the neck and witli a vigorous hand launr-hed it across the wail tbt surrounded ! the nagnoi.es garden. Jim was found I Jim had returned!" fiuch was the salutation of his beautiful sweetheart ;t ' - tTning visit. And ho wab wueref" demanded M. de bnuiiont, calmly. Htolen, of course, and beaten besides, for he a Havao and wicked, bidd from every one, nets under the furniture, and refuses to remain u'w.n my lap at any price. No mat ter, be it here! It is all I care for. Be sides, I'll care him so much he'll forget the fright he ba hu tiered. And now be friends! I was wron to he. cross with you, but you te I thought you had done an evil turn to my poor, cleur Jim!" Koger stifled an "ohf of fright man "oh!" of horror. Thus was peace signed that en dured this tim) at the Villa Plagnolles, lloger simply swam iu a tide of tenderness, and Armando wM growing almost melan choly ande the pressing demands of this wuu suppurated her ceaselessly. Hue bad not a yet pronounced the sacramental yes, neither had she said him nay One evening, when if. de Gramont had shown hirtia.lF m .

Armande could see no one." was the announcement at the door, and In the garden the domestics were all assembled curiously regarding something in the middle oi a great cluster of peonies in the corner of the parterre. Jim, th9 false Jim, or rather Jim No. S, as he saw the moment he approached, accom paniedhis legs trembled under him as he counted the catastrophe by sir little cats, evidently just brought into the world, and which Jim was ticking lovingly. M. de Gramont had not made sufficient in quiries. Pressed by the train hour, and with out a second to lose, ho had contented him self with asking '-how muehr" and now, scar let with embarrassment, thunderstruck at me turn oi aiiairs, no stood tnero, th gaze or tne servants bent upon him curiously, an inner voicocrving in bis car: A nice mess you've made of it! What will you do now W hat will become of von lne kitchen and the office laush together: they accuse you already; they knew befcro you the habits of the true Jim, his passionate taste for the chase. Deduction is the sim plest thing in the world ; tiiey devise instinct ively the facts of the case; the death of the poacher, the subtituiion of this interesting moxneri Poor Uogerl poor nnhanpv I over I He dared not hit his eves for fear of encounter ing Armande's at the window, and remain -d there unable to tear his gaze from that young and interesting family! Maternity had plainly .sweetened the nature of thecat; it was no longer the least in the world ferocious, but lay there continuing to caress her chil dren and to fix her yelinw eyelialls upon lloger with an air of positively thanking him for having shaped her lot and landing her in so comfortable a place. All these thoughts buzzed in the brain of j M. de Gramont like a swarm of bees; to i struggle against fate was useless; this last stroke finished him. He yielded; be aban doned everything, and, tearing himself from the spot to which ho had been nailed, ho ran without a word, without a gesture, without turning bis head even; yes, ran with all bis legs, gained the gate, the outer road and dis appeared. Returned to his room he fell upon a chair and wiped his hrow, from from which the sweat ran in streams. An hour later there wns a knock at the door and a servant entered with an urgent letter from M. de Plagnolles. "My death sentence!'' thought Koger, holding out a hes itating band. "My dear Roger," hegnn the letter; "all is discovered; your em t larrassment, your fright, your tlight betrayed you. Armande was furious, cried hysterically; swore she wou d never see you ngam. Then she de scended to the garden. Sue has Seen the sutstitute for Jim and tiecn seized with a sudden affection for tne new bom.

A month later the marriage was solem nized, and a year hirer the voung Mme. de Gramont renounced of Lor own accord the education and bringing up of cuts. One doi; . ess iiv:::-s why. Translated from the rrenchrt Truer!, l by h. C. VV gener for Now Yorn M'-n-ury, A NOBLE CALLING HOW TRAINED NURSES ARE TAUGHT TO TEND THE SICK. A NEW YORK SHOP GIRL. Her Day'i Reord of Oherrfulnrss, Patlenr and Sweet Temiier. A woman who b :d occasion to purchase household funisbinKS thre lately tells this story to her friends: "I went down into a basemen; where th--y fet-pt th things and I wanted mor? t hi n- th:tn 1 cc-u?d Ijein to enumerate, 'veil to niylf, all the way from a rolling pn to a refrigerator ranging thronsb butter piates. tov-e litis and waste baskets. Well, I jtit vut myself into the hands rf a nice girl with o'urfc hair and a kind countenance, whol-xiki delightfully capa ble and self reliant that 1 confided to her I wanted to furnish a flat and didn't half know what I oncht to purchase. 'You see.' I said. I never furnished a fcnne before, and it's so confuting to have to buy pillows and flat irons and kitchpn clocks. They always seemed just to le there like the walls of the bouse or the iuriliirht, and 1 gt ali mixed up when 1 try to remei l'oer what '-eoi'Ie on!it to have when the lem life in one of those dreadfully empty new fiats. I know 1 oujht to buy a pepper box, and a washboard, and curtain poles, but what else!' "That girl had a kind bean., and was too clever and sensible for anything. She gave me one comprehensive g'ance, and went and fetched a printed list tnat was made espe cially for young housekeepers, and has on it the name of everything they could by any possibility he likely to want for the dining room, kitchen and laundry. Then she Rat down on one pantry step ladder and 1 on an other, and she read over each thing and checked it off if 1 thought I wanted it. After that she took me to the front of the shop, got out a huge clothes basket and began to show me samples of each thing we had marked off seventy in ail there were. She knew ex actly where each and every one of those seventy things were kept and the prices of all three cradi of everv one. "As soon as I would make my selction she would put it in the basket, and in one hour 1 bad filled the whole list, had the bill and paid it Then she tAd me where to get every thing else I needed and just what it cost and what counter I could find it at and the best sort of goods to buy for my purpose. As far as house furnishing goods were concerned, 1 found she carried every single detail of that vast establishment in her head. I didn't question her concern mg clothes, but I am nrmly convinced she could have dressed me from top to toe and then sent me to the book counter and selected the literature best suited to the caliber of my intellect. Hhe had been on her feet since S o'cl-c'k, working hard all the while, pulling down goods, carrying them about, nuiking up people's minds for them, being continually crowded aim jostled and asked four hundred thousand questions on as many different subjects, and yet at 3 o'clock, when 1 left her, she was gentle, civil, obliging and ready to do anything asked of her, with apparently as much interest in get ting the things for my house as 1 bad my self. I doubt if there are many women in the upper world of JStw York who could show such a day's record of cheerfulness, pa tience and sweet temper.1 New York World. Coarse of Instruction la the Illinois Train ing f&hool Care of Patients In the Big Hospitals A Look la the Wards. Trained nurses bare Droved as much of a success in Chicago as have the members of that dignified profession in other cities. The Illinois Training school supplies to a large extent the corps of nurses that have charge of the wards in both tiie county and Presbyterian hospitals. Acting on the belief that the value of the services of a nurse is in proportion to their intelligence, capacity and refinement, the applicants to this school are subjected to a month's trial, during which they are carefully, examined mall the com mon school branches of study. If their record in every way is satisfactory they are invested with the uniform and enter at once upon the regular course of instruction, consisting of study from text books, medical lectures and practical work in either hospital. After a year in the school pupils are ex pected to perform any service required, whether it be in the hospitals or in a private house. Eighty young women are now in this training school and places could be pro vided for as many more if the supply wem only equal to the demand. The oay of the convivial Sairy Gamp is no more, for people are fast recognizing the fact that getting well when one has been sick is as much a matter of good nun-ing as hard dosing. Even more so in many cases. The majority of ap plicants who desire training for this new pro fession look forward to gaining a livelihood therebv, and some bo irom it a life of use fulness among the sick poor. Tho Illinois Training school is as cheertul as any private home, and the young women who receive a training there leave when tho course is over with a great deal ot reluctance. The practical part of ihe. instruction is very thorough and includes a knowledge of the management of helpless patients, making beds, giving Laths in bed, bandaging, the dressing of blisters, making poultices, and preparing, cooking and serving delicacies for the sick. They are taught bow to venti late rooms properly, to tako observations for the physician, care for rooms, and manage convalescents, lhev learn how to take and record the state of the pulse, temperature, appetite, delirium or stupor, breathmj sleep, condition of wounds, and effect of medicine, diet, stimulant, or narcotic. A superintendent has charge of tne entire corps and is responsible to the medical staff for the proper performance of duty. A com petent head nurse is in each wavd to look after both tho night and day nurses, and with attending physicians gives instructions to the novices at the bvdsido of patients. In addition to a knowledgo of nursing there must be the quality of housewives, for to each ward is attached a dining room for con valescents, and for the care of that, with the kitchen, store rooms, and linen ciosets, the head nurse must account. A look in at any of the wards in the county hospital will reveal two, three, or more of these tender women clad in blue and white striped dresses of seersui-Ker, each capital with snowy white muslin and wearing long white aprons nnd culls. They are going about from cot to cot ministering to tho wants of patients in the various stages of sickness and recovery. All is quite, orderly and cheerful. A physician enters and after examining a patient turns and sj.aus aM urd or two to the nu.-se standing near. She gives no answer, but goes to a smaii room adjoin ing and returns in a moment with Ivmdagcs a:id cotton, which she hands the doctor, stiil without a word. Tbere set-ins to ba some thing approaching the ri.liT.ar,- in the disci pline observed throughout the whole estab lishment. On tne opoosite side of the ward lies a woman hugging close to her a lat faced baby. It is not ber own, but one bor rowed froru the lying in ward upstairs. All the wan faced women turn their eyes toward the lacghing little thing as in a few mo ments a nurse bears it from the great sunny room. In the children's ward are the same attendants, some carrying very sick ones in their arms, and others amusing the little ones that are able to sit up and hold toys or books. The patients that linger on the borderland of death are cared f"r in small rooms tbat contain but three ldstaeh. Here the labors of the nurse mut be unremitting, although little or no medicine is required. Many of the poor men and women lying in these beds are past all hpes of recovery, and it is only by the administration ff patient, skillful at tention tbat theftrf'.u tlame is kept alive a few days longer. In tue we'd warmed hails the convalescent find aw of the women are assisting a nurse to fold linen fcr bandages. Pnysicians are passing up and down in ele vators, and frieiius come in to visit the pa tients. The "Daughters of the King' are scattering beautiful bl.ssoms everywhere, Cpon the completion of their hilars m th training school the nurses, furnished with diplomas signed by the managers and the examining Iwwd of the hospitals and pro vided with $!U tn money, begin their several careers. Some pet positions as heals ot hos pitals, others respond to tho ever increasing demand from private hou"5es. and some com mence a life wort amonj tiie sick poor. Chicago Times. jOTti'L iff!
