The arystery of tbo Man of the Iron Mask." A strong interest lias been directed two hundred years toward a man with an unknown name, who lived during the reign of the magnificent, but dissolute monarch, Louis XIV., of France. About lGKJ.a st.ite prisoner, tall and well proportioned, of noble bear ing, was secretly vo:ivcyed to I'igner ol, and consigned !o the" guardianship of St. Mars, go.- ,;or of the ustle. Six years later he v. is transfer,' d to tlielsle of Mar-i'ier. . in the Mcllter ranean. St. Mai s .i.- ajtnp.i nied liitu and watched ii.m v.'ith unco is4:i vigilance. He .tt ami .slept in !h room, and allowed him no eh tti . escape or eoni:uiinirr.:Ln vr.th i-. -one. It is evident the pn:ie.". i- U and rank were high, ui t!i..il- . I ants treated him wilh the u.nnvt deference. His aeenit.' ii-I.iii ds were many and varied, .-iid It ;: joyed books and niiifii-, our llie re markable feature of this illitstrous personage was that lie was nev.-r seen without a black velvet m.,-k over his face, which completely concealed every feature. AtalittlediMtanceitie sembled a mask of iron, ami was so constructed with sleel springs at the back of the head that it could not be removed, while it left him perfect liberty to cat and drink. Shutout from his fellow-men, it is not surpris ing he should seek to invent some way of conveying to his friends knowledge of his dreadful existence. Food was carried to him in dishes of silver, and once he contrived to Ke.rafeh on ?i silver plate a short account of his im- nrTlniiiiinnf TM.C.-t l. !.. : IT l'iiouiiuii;ia. i.1113 uu Llliuw IUUJ tUO Water, honinir it would ntlmet tho eyes of some men in a boat who were pulling for the shore. They saw it anu picKea it up, out were unable to read what was written upon it, and took the plate to St, Mars. The re sult was" the unfortunate man was .held in severer confinement than ever. In 1690 St. Mars was appointed governor of the bastile. Secretly his prisoner was conveyed oi a litter to this place, and a well-furnished room was pro vided for him. Again he attempted to make the discovery of his name, which he wrote on a strip of linen and gave to one of his attendants not in possession of the secret, but this person died suddenly, itivas supposed by poison. Atone time, some pris oners confined over him, made him long to enjoy a little social pleasure which had been so many years de nied him. I3y stealth he conversed with them, and they found him to bo a man of extended learning, but ho told them the revelation of his narao and rank would be the means of death to both him and them. St. Mars was always urovided with weapons with which ib end his life should he attempt to escape, or suc ceed in disclosing hi? Hrrft TsTn wonder he was vigilantly guarded. iur uie penalty ot ms discovery would ""t wol kji. jiuis ma me. Thirteen years went drearily by, during which time the illustrious un known man of the bastile still lived, yet he was dead to the outside world. Books and music were his only source of pleasure. Once in a while a glimpse was gained of him, and public curiosity was excited toward him, and whisperings as to who he was went from circle to circle, but availed nothing. In 1703 death came mercifully to release him. His medical attendant never saw his face, but believed him to be "about GO years old. He was buried at midnight near the cemeterv of St. Paul. When the bastile was destroyed, the room he had occupied was eagerly searched, but the furniture had been burned, the ceiling and casements destroyed, and also everything on which he could have made any records of his life. "NpJtliPr nTo tho prison books reveal any item of im- puruince. livery means Mad been taken to keen his identa'tvin tho iinrV forever. Who could this distimiuished per sonage have been, styled in history "The Man of the Iron Mask?"

This great sculptist was born in 1475, four hundred and ton yeara ago on the Gth of March at Hettig nano, thirteen miles from Florence. His correct name is supposed to have been Michael Angelo Ruoiuinoti. Mike began to draw as soon as he was large enough, and for miles and miles around Florence they still point with pride to pictures on the high board fences of which he is supposed to have been the author. While very young, Michael went into the Madonna business, and now it is a pretty poor Italian town that can't afford" a Madonna of some kind. The first great work that Mr. Angelo executed in Rome was the "Drunken Bacchus." It seems that Bacchus was a first-rate bo' if he had let liquor alone. But he would drink. Ho would go and fill his skin as full of old-fashioned red liquor as it would hold, and then he would hunt im fi sculpture and get himself measured for a bust. Early in the sixteenth century, Michael executed a statue of David, from memory. This statue weighed 18,000 pounds, and several Americans who have been over there and who were perfectlyfcfamiliar with the way David lt)ked pronounce the expres sion perfect. It takes a certain kind of American to settle the merits of any great work, from the creation it self down to the latest joke. The fame of the great sculptor had by this time reached the ears of Pope Julius II, who was meditating the erection of a colossal mausoleum for himself in St. Peter's. A serious misunderstanding arose, however, between Michael Angelo and the nope over this work, and the sculptor left la disgust. It is not yet fully settled what this trouhln resnlfvl from, but as near as I am able to learn the none became, nnrwefi ann ?a- charged the scultor because, at the last moment anu wnen it was too late to remedy the evil, ho found that uie mausoleum didn't lit him. If this be true, I am free to say that Mike was in the wrong. No man wants to pay a large sum fora mausoleum and then find when he comes to trv it on that it bags at the knees. Later on, at Florence, the great ar tist designed a magnificent work rep resenting a company of soldiers startled by the call of a'trumpet while bathing in the Arno. This was never completed and only the cartoon itself remains to suggest what a master piece was designed. So life-like is the cartoon alone that on a still dav you can hear the snort of the trumpe't as the soldiers rush to the bank. As you gaze at tho picture you are lost in admiration and you liardly know whether to go wild over the master's great genius or to go and inform the police. Michael frescoed the Sistine chapel ceiling in twelve months ; and did it well, too. He was a rapid as well as a thorough artist, and his head was literally full of ideas. At last ne and the pope again bo came reconciled, and in isia tho sumptuous pontiff died leaving in structions for Angelo to cut his mau soleum a little higher in the neck and his executor would settle the bill on sight. It would take many pages to give even a rough outline of the many beautiful monuments which Michael Angelo has erected to his own undy ing fame as a sculptor, painter and poet. He lived to be ninety years old, and then, full of years and crowned with the glory he had carved out by his own genius and industry, he died. Though his work was beautiful, he was not himself beautiful. He ran largely to brow, but bis nose was broken in a little misunderstanding that he had at school with a young designer, who thought it would be a good scheme to put what was termed in Florence in the fifteenth century a tin nose on Mike. This gave him a look of pain, and his nose served to con very the idea that the great sculp tor has just detected the presence of Limburger cheese under his pillow. As a general thing, however, great men are not beautiful. The pretty young man has really but one avenue open to him in the world's great race. If he cannot mash a tniifh old hnirpsq whose father has got the pip, he has very little chance in the mighty struggle of life. If mv son should show anv rIphs of great physical beauty, having taken tllPm from him misthn-a ctita nf tia house, I would immediately hump mv back readv to hear a f mat hnr- den; for, judging by the world's his- wj , iiia iuumr-ia-iuw ana jl wouia have to take a turn about in maintain ing the young man and hi3 cumula tive family. The following account is given ol tho origin of the term "eavesdrop per:" At the revival of Masonry in 1717, a curious punishment was in flicted upon a man who listened at the door of a Masonic meeting in or der to hear its secrets. He was sum marily sentenced "to be placed undex the eaves of an outhouse while it was raining hard, till the water an irJ under the collar of his coat and out al his shoes." Tho penalt' wan inflicted on the spot, and the name has con tinned ver since. Be pleasant and kind to those around you. A man who stirs his tea with an icicle spoils his tea and chills his fingers.

"It was a bad thing for the indus trial interests of the country that Cleveland was elected," remarked a man in a Monroe street saloon. "Oh, that's all in your eve," re plied the bartender.

A doctor who ought to know says that the practice of the wholesale use of smelling salts, which came in with universal fashion of carrying smell ing bottles, is sure to have its in fluence upon the olfactory nerves, sooner or later, and renders the victim unable to distinguish cologne from asafetida. More than all that it causes headaches, rok thrno.fa and red noses. The last argument will nave ns weignt. mo smelling doom must go. A pretty way to make a shade for tho lamp, or rather a cover for the porcelain shade, is to take a narrow trip of red silk, gather it quite full pt each edge, drawing it close at the (top so it will fit the shade, then trim .tho bottom with antiquo lace; this Should begathered, but lie smoothly over the shade: then with heavy embroidery silk draw in a fringe all around the lace ; this should be thick and close, and should quite conceal the shade.
