mornings he had met Bnlzac strolling

fourth he could hold out no longer and
asked Balzac the reason of these noc
turnal perambulations roundabout the
same spot.
Balzac put his. hand in his pocket
and produced an almanac showing that
the sun did not rise before 3:50. "I am
being tracked by the officers of the
tribunal de commerce and obliged to
hide myself during the day, but at this
hour I am free and can take a walk,

An episode lu Mr. Eddy's career at
the time of the Victorian Jubilee" of
1807 was an udveuture he had during t
London fog with a fair Russian prin
cess in which he saved her from being
trodden on by horses in the streets of
the English metropolis when the mist
was so thick it was Impossible to find
one's way. The incident was made
the foundation for a romance entitled
"Love In a Fog," which nttractcd at

that Mr. Eddy was much smitten with
the beautiful Russian of his adventure,
but, however that may be. no nuptial

three years ago, he married into tbt
