Loonce de Nordun WHS a dolightful
fellow. Ho was 26 yours old, lind a
beautiful black board, ologantly trim
rood, a coat out in thu latest stylo, an
iucomo of 10,000 francs, a law licen
tiate's diploma in a drawer, pion ty of
wit, much soif-assurance, a good heart
and an honorable name.
Having nothing to do, ho was good
for nothing. Ana bow could ho amuso
himself? When a man is poor, the ef
forts necessary to bim, his humblo dis
couragements and joys, his disappoint

his mind. But it is quito otherwise to
tho man who lacks nothing. Agreea
ble lodgings, excellent ruoals, rides in
tho Hois and a box at the opera, are
all a man want, but thoy aro not very
satisfying. To begin over again every
morning, and turn tho samo mill all
day overy day, makes a protty poor
lifo. So thought Leonco, as bo tapped
the pavement with his hopis in a mel
ancholy fashion.

Ho was mechanically following the
long arcades of tho Ruo do Rivoli, ono
day, when he heard two full, joyous,
amusing voices. Ho saw before him
two rotund, solid men, with happy
faces. From tho conversation, ne
soon loarnod that they wero provin

joy themselves, and everything and
evorybodyt And what plans they
were making! For that day, tho mor
row, tho noxt day, and tho day after
that. Thoy did not hopo to havo time
to soo and do everything, but they
were going to try.
An idea Hashed into L?once's mind
like lightning. "I do not know what
to do," he thought; "I will do just
what those men da Perhaps it will
be interesting, I will follow them all

One morning he had good fortuno at

and w.appnd in an ampio cloak; on

and thin, with a remnant of beauty.
"ld. Dulaurier," said she, with not
the least cation not to be hoard by
the passers, "we can truly say that we
bave ? beautiful sight before us."
"You are right a thousand times,
Mme. Dulaurier! But thoro are the
girls far .n advance of us!"
? "Louise! Loulsettef" called Mme.
Dulaurior; and two young women,
who preceded their father and mother
by a few steps, stopped and waltod.
. Louise was evidently older than her
.later Louisotto. She was tall and Im
posing, like her mother; she. loved
linen of daxzling whiteness laid in or
der lo great oaken presaos. She wat a
, woman of strong mind.
Louisette, on the other hand, WM
.louder, fair and naturally elegant,
though ?he wore an ill-made dross.
Sba bad .mall feet, and her long, slen
der hands sought the green ribbons of
her bat with a feature Instinctively co
quettish, which did not escape L?once .
all-teeing Parisian eye. Bo thought
her eharmlog. but awkward, and ne
began to follow tb? four with a .peolal
attention. " .
About 10 o'clock they ?ll enterada

It may bo that my society is not agroe

In an hour thoy woro soalod in tho
arbor promised by Loonco, and woro
altogether friends. Loonco had ac
cepted with warm gratitude au invita
tion from Madame Dulaurior to visit
thom at their Flemish village homo.
"Do you not think." whispered Lou
Leo to Louisotto, "that father and
mother became friends very oasily and
quickly with this stranger?"
"Why no," replied Louisotto; "it is
perfectly natural."
Two mouths hitor Loonco alighted
at tho railway station, Donia and M.
Dulaurior offered his hand in welcome.
He now had timo to appreciate M. Du

young man as he really was-simple,
natural, sympathetic and gentle.
L?once was recoivod with tho most
demonstrative joy by Mme. Dulaurior,
with a cordial salutation br Louiso,
with an odd little ?milo by Louisotto.
It was nearly 7 o'clock, and M. Du

Tho repast was a roal French din
ner, with all the moats, poultry and
game possible, an enormous quantity
of beer, and all tho winos one could
think of.
After dinner, which was prolonged
quite into the ovoning, M. Dulaurior,
in consideration of his guest's fatigue,
conducted him to his room at once.
L?once set himself to oponing his
trunks and portmanteaux. At length
he drew from a portfolio a letter daint
ily folded and porfurned, and began to
read aloud, as follows:
"I lore y ou Louiso! Sweet and charm
ing as you are, who would not love
you? lt is for this reason that I left
Paris; lt was to tell yon this. For two
months 1 have thong?, only of you,
and of tho happy day whoc I traveled
with yon, the day that determined my
life. Ob, Louise! Louiso! ii you only
loved mo!"
"It ls very good," said Loonco to
himself. "I never expressed a note
moro suitably. Now the question is
how to convoy it to that lady. The
simplest way is tho best, of course.
I'll put it under the door into her
room. But whoro is hor room? Tba!
Li the question."

and opened bis door with the greatest

delicate tiguro enter a room on tho left
at the endof the gallery.
Our hero allowed a few momenta to
elapse, and then, stepping Uko a oat,
visited the door through which Louis

slipped under tho door the letter he

Tho HulUlon's Grip.
One often hoars of a bulldog's grip,
but seldom of a case where a dog
showed snell tenacity as a bulldog ex
hibited at Welborsilold a few days ago.
William Smith, of that town, owns a
hunting dog. A savage bulldog pitched
into liim, seizing him by the shoulder,
and refused lo iel go. The hunting
dog, badly frightened, howled and
struggled with terror, and tried to pull
away, but tho bulldog held on to him
witli a doatli grip- Tho hunting dog
dragged him, by the teeth in his flesh,
across the road to his own homo, howl
ing tor help. Will Smith tried to mako
the aggressor let go by kicking him,
but this didn't make him wink. IIo
then rushed for a pitchfork, and drovo
the lines plump into him twice. Ho
Still showed no signs of letting go.
Mrs. Smith thou ran for an ax, sud
gave tho brute two solid blows with tito
head of it, tho second om: having tho
desired offcct. The dog let go, and
seemed to feel quito sick. He had got
his death wounds, and ere long ho
died. While Smith was plunging the
fork into him, tho jaws ot the dog did
not remain lixed, but would momentar
ily relax their hold; but before tho
hunting dog could escape tho relentless
jaws would close again, ami the grip
would continue. He was "good
blood," bul tito Smith family had a
persuasive way with thuin. - A S Ml Haven
