Showas the* only child of two artistes engaged at unc tho boulevard thea ters. Slaves to tlioir profession, they had no time to spare for Lucette, who was left to the care of her grandmother, a dear old lady of CO years, who loved the little "morsel," #jnst opening its eyes on existence, with the strength and fervency of three—father, mother and self. All day long slio would play with Jjueette, while her son and daughter-in law were learning their parts or re hearsing their roles at the theater. Poor little Lucette! From her earliest days she had b*en lulled to sleep by long speeches and awakened by explosions of dram at io wrath. How many times in the apartment of the Vernieres. which looked upon u gloomy court in the Rue de Bondy, had she been startled by the melodramatic voices ami extravagant gestures of her ]Kirents while repeating "Rolert Maeaire," "The Wandering Jew," "Thirty Years of an Actor's Life" and cither works of ^he same class. When the Vernieres were "on tour," the grandmother delighted to take Lucette for a day's outing in the suburbs, where the grass was green enough and the trees tall enough to make one think oneself really in the country. "The child needs a breath of fresh air," she would say, and while she sat upon a folding stool, reading with pro found attention the journal she had brought with her, Lucette Would roll upon the grass in happy iniKx^ence, amusing herself with chasing butter flies, pulling flowers or listening to the blackbird whistling in the brandies. On these occasions the little white face would glow all over with health and pleasure, while the good old dame, made happy at seeing "her child" look ing so much stronger and Iwtter, would thank God for her and lie down to rest with a peaceful smilo and quiet con science. When she was 6 yc&rs old, Lucette was lively as a kitten and sang like a lark. The grandmother took especial pride in teaching her to repeat passages from Racine and fables from La Fontaine, which the child would recite with a se rious air in a voice both musical and impressive. About this period tho parents began to bestow more attention on their charm ing little daughter. One evening at dinner Lucette gave a recitation, and Verniere, listening with his mouth full, cried: "Wife, wo must make an artiste of this youngster. What 's bred in the bone comes out in the flesh. She's in love with the 'boards' already. She'll do." "Not quite a bad idea," said the mother. "Bah!" interposed the grandmother. "There's plenty of time to talk about that. There's"— "Listen, granny. There's ho time like the present. Now, in a very short while they're going to put on 'The Old Cor poral' at the Theatre du Nord. I'm cast for the principal role, that of Corporal Simon, in which I succeed tho great comedian, Frederick Lemaitre, but the manager has no one to till the part of Emmeline, tli( little girl that Corporal Simon carries perched on his knapsack at the siege of Ulin. Well, if I were to propose Lucette"— "You're a fool," interrupted the old lady, with great energy. "A child of 0 years—delicate, sensitive! You want to kill her perhaps?" "Get along with you. Don't worry yourself with nonsenso of that sort, granny. The child will take no harm. She will be with me. It's an opportunity not to be thrown away. She will make respectable acquaintances and at tho same time learn her profession. Just leave us alone, and all will go right. The old grandmother had to submit. Fifteen days after Lucette was letter perfect in tho short part of Emmeline. and Verniere, having laid his projMjsal before tho manager, brought his daugh ter down to rehearsal. "She's a prodigy. She'll cram the house," was that astute gentleman's re flection a3 ho watched tho pe rformance. At tho finish he accepted the offer aud closed the bargain. The curtain rose for the first act of "The Old Corporal." It was the camp before U-lm. General Roquelxrt, whom Napoleon had ordered to "draw the Aus trians" in order to mask an imjxirtant movement of the main army, was con fiding to the old veteran, Antoine Si mon, tho care of his daughter Emme line. The audience, a most sympathetic and enthusiast.c one, had eyes only for Lu cette Verniere, the child who imper sonated Emmeline. As for Simon, he raged aud stormed inwardly at the un happy fortune which had turned him into a "nursery l^iaid," instead of per mitting him to tear a hand in tanning the hides of the "Kaiserlichs. The corporal and Emmeline had taken •belter on the outskirts of a wood, when of a sudden Simon perceived the glitter of cannon and the shc*en of steel among the trees. Almost nt the same moment the enemy "spoke." Volley after volley whistled through the branches, scatter ing the leaves mnl tearing off tJ:e Kirk. "It's nothing." said he to the child. ••Don 11* afraid. Here, let's play 'pick a-back.' The cannon poured in a broadside. Simon lifted the little girl upon his shoulders nnd set her on his knapsack, and trembling for the first time in his life, fired his musket, to the great de light of Kmmoivie, who clapped her ands and shouted gleefully. In due time a company of French troops ar rived upon tho scene, and amid frantic cheering from the spectators the corporal nfid his companion are borne off in safety, but General R"quebert has IwH'ii mortally wounded. He- is carried in upon a litter, and in his last agony blesses Emmeline, who is left in charge of the old corporal after a thousand in structions and recommendations neces sary to the rest of the piece. The little innoccnr, crowing aud smiling in the middle of this crowd of soldiery, among all these decorations, this noise and smoke of battle, won a veritable triumph. The public applaud ed wi«h frenzy, and when some one spoke of her as an "infaut prodigy" the phrase was caught up and echoed round the house. Always "pick a back" on tho knap sack of the old corporal, she Was "call ed" three times, and oil reaching the wings was immediately hugged and kissed, feted and fondled and crammed with bonbons and dainties by tho ladies of the company. "That was a capital idea of mine," Verniere had said to himself on signing the engagement of his daughter at tlie Theatre du Nord, "capital." For a hundred nights "The Old Cor poral" drew crowds to the boulevard, and those unablo to get insido remained wutside to cheer the "infant prodigy," Lucette Verniere. All was going merrily. At the end of three months Lucette began to show signs that tho strain was telling on her. Her slim figure and palo face were growing slimmer and paler. Her eyes were heavy, her look jaded. The grandmother oltservf.nl the symp toms with alarm. She called the atten tion of the parents to the child, but Verniere would listen to nothing and contented himself with replying: "Don't make yourself uneasy about nothing. 'The Old Corporal's' begin ning to flutter. We can't keep him going 'much longer, and after ho drop* Lucette will have plenty of time to rest." She was "resting" now, little Lu cette. Resting, with a face whiter than the pillow on which her head lay, a victim to brain fever. From time to time her wasted little hand .would grasp convulsively, as if seized with sudden fear, the long, bony hand of her old grandmother. Poor old woman, how she suffered to see her darling lying ill, and in a fury of anger she would charge Verniere with sacrificing the child to his vanity. "You have driven her beyond her strength. You've exhausted all her force#. Maudit!" Tho father never replied. He knew that he had done a bad business and de served all the reproaches his mother heaped upon him. When Lucette opened her big eyes and fixed them on him. they seemed to re proach him also. They felt like knives in his heart. Qne afternoon, after the doctor's de parture, Lucette wap taken delirious. She sat up in bed, staring about her wildly and crying: "The enemy Look there! Forward! Vivo l'enipereur!" And again: "General Roquebert is mortally wounded. A doctor—quick—hurry— there's no time to lose!" They were phrases from "The Old Corporal," which were passing through the fevered brain of tho poor child. Ver niere and his wife stood at the head of tho bed, plunged in an abyss of grief. As for the old grandmother, she could scarcely see for weeping. Her heart was broken. For a few moments the child remain ed quiet, aud the watchers thought she had fallen aslee p, but suddenly starting up "all of a piece," and with an agony of terror lighting up inr face: "The enemy!" phe cried, throwing rp her arms. "The enemy!" And she fell hack dead. Threo days later tho body of the "in fant prodigy"—Lucette Verniere—was laid in tho cemetery at Pant in. Oil the L'oflin was placed a magnfficent floral crown, which bore the inscription, "To Lucettc Verniere, artiste, from the The atre du Nord." The old grandmother was too pros trptedto join the funeral procession, but after the sun was down, the figure of the poor old creature might have been seen bending over the still open grave, and her voice heard calling softly, so softly that she seemed afraid it might awaken the little sleeper who lay he low "Lucette, my child my darling Lucette. It is Do yon hear me? I am coming to you." Next morning the gravediggers found upon the grave of the "infant prodigy" the inanimate form of the old grand mother, smiling in death upon her well beloved grandchild Lucette.—From the French.
