II KRK am two ParNes -(iiuiahovii ground, tlio other under Without knowing this fact no one can under stand n French icvolutlou, llltlch less the great re vo lilt Ion which rose ami hroku u linn tired years ago. Paris a h ti v n ground has sun shine, Iroulcvarils, cafe's, salons, men, women, mobility, enthusiasm, Par is underground has cellars, vaults, sou ers, Plutonian haunts, darkness, salt peter and death. Hut life Is there with death a kind of life and thu twosome times conspire. Then comes fermenta tion, n sort of horrid foaming, and the underground sea spumes up through the cellars, Hoods the streets ami the whole world. Strangu that thu cellars of Paris should hold not only thu soil hut thu seed genus of civilization! In thu liroiitl country sldu of thu nations thu under niiin lives In a hut or cabin. A bird sits on thu roof comb and sunlight creeps through thu chinks. Ilut In Paris thu under man lives In u vault. This Is true also In London and New York, and In all your feat massed populations. The tinder man, the bottom man, thu real earth man, lives In u cellar; his wife also, and his children. It Is not it good plaeu to live. Thu French Revolution began above ground, in thu kingdom of thought, hut the drippings of It fell Into the 1'arlsian cellars. Within a year from thu beginning the very suwers were full of foam. With this subterranean elTervcscencu all shapes ami forms weru cast to t hu surface. It was as if the sea had vomiteill Unknown creatures camu up from thu pit of that horrid stomach and liegau to swim ami shriek and light. Among thu rest theru was spuwed forth a doctor Dr. .Marat. Dr. Jean Paul Marat, or Mara, as his father spelled it a sort of spectral pygmy not llvu feet high, hut bearing a monstrous head and hideous face. lie was Dr. Matat; his enemies said a horse doctor. Ilut that was a slander. True, hu had Is-en veteri nary surgeon to thu Comtu tl'Arlols, des tined after thirty-four years to Ihi King Charles X of France. Ilut .lean Paul was also u doctor of men, a good one, too, who had spent many years in London, where ho wrotu essays and hooks and learned to hate thu British aristocracy. The Comtu d'Artolsmadchlin physician of thu guards, as well as of his horses: this In 1777, for his hour was not yet conic. Marat had for Ids mother Ioulsu Cubrol, a Genuvesu Calvluist, which accounts for onu part of him, hut hu had for his father Jean Paul Mara, of Cagllari, on the south ern coast of Sardinia, and this accounts for another part, lie was a cross between Italian and Calvluist a sort of hybrid of assassin and fatalist. He was horn May 'J4, 1741, being live years older than Mini beau and fourteen years older than ltobcs plerru. In his youth hu studied medicine for two years at Bordeaux', and presently becamu an oculist of no mean skill. At this period of his life hu absorbed his social and philosophical opinions, which hu carried witli him, llrst to Paris, then into Holland and afterward to London. In his thirtieth year hu began as an author, and In '71 published his llrst political treatise, under thu slgullleaiit iiamu of thu "Chains of Slavery." IIu remained in Loudon three years longer, writing on medical and social questlGtis, and was then recalled to Franco to preserllsj for thu guards (and stud also) of thu Comtu d'Artols, who gavu him nn annual salary of 'J.OUO llvres for his ser vices. A promising man already was Dr. Jean Paul. But w must pass over much. After ten years thu call was Issued for thu assum- l blitig of thu states general. Now It was that Marat plunged into thu swim and be gan to trouble thu already troubled waters. With the opening of the states general many patriot Frenchmen were disposed to taku thu huglish constitution as the model for new France. But.Marat had seen enough of the British system, ami in .September of 'b'.Mie published a powerful monograph en titled "A View of the Vices of the Const! tutlonof Kuglaml." Already thu pygmy with the monstrous head had become a democrat and i evolutionist according to the gospel of Koiism-uu. With the Is'glnnlngof thueoiilllct proper behold Marat In Paris! IIu has become a Journalist, the most audacious that has ever jet appeared among men. FlrM. lie founded The Moniteur Patrlote, then The Publicist!. Parlsieu, and then, on (lie lllh of Septemlier, I7h.l, The Ami till Peuple, or Friend of the People, n Journal w hlcb from that d'iy lcniiiicllHent of the FaulHiurgs, the ery mouth and miiiI of the win-cu lottes III this paper .Marat Imvmii to pour out without measure the cr esM-nce of radi cali-ui ami iiudnclt). Ills attack was on eeiMlnug-on tlie monarchy, on the king, on the royal faiuil), on the aristocracy, on i feudal France, on ever) thing that was ' above the e.irlli Whatever was in power it vn his lifelong policy to oppose. Now it was a man, now an institution, uml now I a principle at which he spat his venom The Ami till Peuple U-ciimu the moiith , piece jf all ill-content, vomiting Hood- of , Invective, acrid as vitriol, llercu us lire. I It was not long until the authorities pounced upon Marat ami his dangerous engine, but lie dived ami lied to Loudon Tlio pygmy with thu monstrous head bail now iM-cotuo an umpieuehablu volcano His 11 res had caught behind him, and lie was t.oon able to leluru to Paris and re lusuu Ids paper. Nevertheless he had lo dlvu uml duck out of sight He di-np pea red from thu kingdom of daylight ami became I lie god of Ilut nether world. Sub terraueau Paris received him. Hades gave n loving gulp and he was safe. D.irl.. uu discoverable vaults opened for his pilot lug picss and editorial stool Ami du People, from being (he mouthpiece of t he Pnillmurgs became the mouthpiece of hell Once ami again the specter was rnuieil from his hiding place, and in the close of I7IM he escaped to Loudon. There he is role bis "L.uleilu Cltoyeu," or "School for the Cltleii," u Miiihculotlu te.M book of lu-ur reel Ion ami blood. In four months, howcicr, the Club of the Conlellers called him back lo Paris. The war with Austria Ibuned up on the boriou,aml the revolutionary paily lot be capital needed every auxiliary even thu pen of Marat. The Ami du Peuple burst nut nun i fiirlmislv I hull iil'nr ll la m-iili nhlo that the atrocious scheme forthumiut nacru of thu loyalist prisoners wan hatrhod In thu brain of Marat, ami that hu Inocu lated the giant Danton with his malign purposu. At all events, thu Septemlier massaeru was thu glory of Anil du Peuplo nml Its editor, The llvu foot goblin rose, In thu bloody uiuiia, ami was cho-en onu of thu representatives to (hu national conven tion from thu commune of Paris, But Ids woik In that body by no means took him from his editorial stool. IIu had learned that his Journal was thu leal weap on of power, and though hu presently changed thu ninnoto Journal of Ilut French Republic he nevi-T relinquished his throne. He now came up, however, fioin thu sub terranean world -came up reeking; for hu had lived in cellars, and starved and suf fered and raved and cursed mil II horrid diseases had sel.ed him, llissklli was con sumed with a sort of scrofulous ee.ema, which burned like lire. Illseullclu uver afterwaul was a shlr.1 of Nesstis, which ho must wear as ono might wear a blister tif sulphuric ncld ami lire Note well that Marat was never a parti san. His general policy was to oppose power In every form, Hu also croaked and prophesied ami caviled. Hu had In him something of the gift of Cassandra and nil of the malignity of Thersltes, To quar rel was his breath uml life. Straugu that such a vindictive and malevolent soul should hu truthful! But it was so, At the bottom Marat spoko thu truth with hlsllps ami from thu heart. He believed absolute ly thu things which lie said ami published. Hu would Join himself with nobody. Hu fought thu king, ami he fought thu (ilron (lists, and hu fought Dumoiirle., and ho fought everything ami everybody which seemed to hltn to 1st a relic of thu ancient order in France. Hard was the struggle between lilm and thu (ilromllsts. Afterthu execution of the king that, powerful party succeeded In arresting Marat, ami ho was brought lieforo thu revolutionary tribunal, but thu trial ended In victory for the hate ful specter, and hu went on as before, only nioru furiously, Marat, however, was not destined to go much further In this world. Thu summer of 1710 found him In n desperate condition from his diseases. Hu was withered almost to n skeleton, and thu burning of his skin could only bo appeased liy sitting for the greater part of thu time In a hath of hot water. Ilut thu energies of Ills ferocious mfml continued to storm and scintillate. Hu had his lodgings in the Hue du 1'P.colu du Medicine, where, in a sort of a garret, hu had llxcd his bath tub and editorial stool beside it, ami where hu was attended by a washerwoman. From this place hu wrotu his editorials, making up proscrip tion lists while he sat In thu bath, comput ing tables In which hu thought that by the killing or ','70,000 additional victims tlio reign of lllH-rtyaud equality might lie es tablished! Soothed by thu hot water ho would reach nut his withered hand ami add other names of thu Girondists uml their abettors to thu list of death. Thus was thu bathing goblin occupied on thu evening of thu lUth of July, lilKl. It was on thu eve of the fourth anniver sary of the storming of thu Bastllu. Theru Is ii rap at thu door outside. The sweet voleo of a woman is heard, evidently thu 7oIi'o of u maiden, who says that shu would "do Francu a service." But Cltl.cu Marat la sick and cannot see, her. So hu tells thu JKAS t'Afl. MAKAT. washerwoman, and the message Is deliv ered. But the girl persists, and Is pres cutlj admitted to thu spectacle. Theru Is the monstrous head above the bathtub, thu upper part of thu shriveled yellow body, and thu bony arms, like the arms of n skeleton. Charlotte C'orday and Jean Paul Marat are face to face! "Cltl.en Marat," says she, "I come from Caen and wish to speak with jnii." "Sit down, my child," says he; "what are tlio traitors doing down at Caen And who am tliu deputies from your coiiutryr" Charlotte names Barbarnux, Pel Ion nml Lou vet The skeleton hand reaches out on the tight side of thu tub to his writing stool. He will note these names, and "their heads shall fall In a fori night." By this movement his chest over the heart re volves out of thu water. It is thu hour of fate. Unit spring, and Charlotte Is by his side. One plunge, and her knlfn is in his breast to thu very hilt. It lluds the ma lignant heart, and the black blood spurts into the water and over the till). "A uiol, ehereainie!" "Ah me, my friend, help!" But horrid death chokes his voice, and us the washerwoman rushes In the dark soul of Marat rushes out forever. David, the artist, shall soon paint the scene for posterity. Thu convention shall rush together, nod all Paris subterranean Paris shall howl ami groan. A deereu shall lie pa-seil by which thu body, or dust, of Mirabeau ill the Pantheon shall make room for the ashes of this Marat. Funeral eulogies shall bcspoLciiMIld poems written ami dramas enacted to perpetuate the inciunr) of I he underground specter of thu Revolution. But Jean Paul shall hear it no more. Whither has begone!' Heaven knows, but not the earth. As for Charlotte, the beautiful creature is haled to the tribunal. Witnesses are called. "They are not needed'" cries shu In sublime indignation, "It Is I that killed Marat. 1 killed one man to save a hun dred thousand, a villain to save innocents, a savage wild beast to give repose to my country. I was a Republican before thu Revolution, and ncn r uiiulnl i iicry.'" She dre es her-elf beautifulli for thu hcalTold.
