years, with the tall and proud figure;

curls like those of an archangel, with
haughty eyes sparkling like blue gems
Tinder the golden fringes of her long eye

girl, the daughter of citizens who had
seen better days, that marvelous human
lily. She had experienced all the petty
troubles, all the cruel daily sufferings of
misery that conceals itself. The poor
and inelegant gowns, painfully remod
eled ev-ry year; the insolence of credit
ors; humiliations; continual and tor
menting thoughts of money she had
experienced tliem all, and in her little
heart, eauer for pleasure and enjoy
ment, swollen with unsatisfied longings,
a dream was arisen little by little, oc
cupying all the room, rendering her in
sensible to all the rest the dream of at
last becoTiiing rich.
She wanted it, ab.-i.lutely; she was
born fur it; she v.m rich now. That
''yes," which she had just pronounced,
had, by its three in ign: letters, changed
her destiny; and she was so content, so
happy, that, it appeared to her ir was all
a dream, that h: r .Mechlin veil was a
cloud that tr.i ;i -' i' ' i- d her into the
realms of the in:pi .- -i i:.-, acro.-s a sidereal

passed; he could Tot persuade himself of
the incredible fact forty-seven years
passed without knowing Gemma.
I i r they had been acquainted with
each other only two months. Marchis,
however much he had irequented society,
drawn then- by his banking connections,
had never let himself be talked to of
marriage-. What! .V wife, children,
troubles, cares, disappointments! Not
even by idea!
And at 47 years one evening, present
from motives of curiosity at a ball to
which the employes of his bank had in
vited him. he must needs lie smitten by
the exquisite, vaporous grace of that
blonde girl, dressed simply in white, en
tering on the arm of a funny little man

bank: a rather ri li-ulous little old man,
who, In-side that divine apparition, slen
der in her ro'oes of snow, made one think
of the gnomes of folk tales, always
crouching at the feet of fairies.
Ah, weakness of hearts growing old!
That apparition was enough to shake all
the ideas of Luigo Marchis concerning
matrimony, and as the old gnome, de
spite his absolute nullity, was an honest
citizen, incapable of resisting the assidu
ities of the director to Lis pretty daugh
ter, the suitor had been greatly pleased
with the consent of that little maiden of
18, that beautiful creature, that blonde
being, to become his wife. Now he
trembled with joy. Jlis eyes were misty
with vivid emotion not perceiving that
that, Uo, was a f-ign of old age and it
was a voice choked with joy that to the
question of the priest, "Are you con

Ah! there were adorers around that
beautiful Signora Marchis, so lovelv and
so young, married to an oil man! It
was expected that this fortress would be
an easy one to conquer. Precisely on
her wedding day Vico Molise, the most
elegant and skeptic il of tho journalists
of Upper Italy, had propounded to his
fri.-nd.s this theorem:
(Jiven a beautiful girl, very poor;
g'v a that she marries a rich old man;
divide the number of his years by thai '
of the hundreds of thousands of lire of
which she lecoines mistress, and you
will have tho number of months neces
sary for her to take a lover."
And as soon as ho could he began.
with many others, to attempt the demon-
stration of that theorem. .
Well, this time tho impeccable pyscho
Iogieal diagnosis of "Vico Molise had been
found to fail. Not only, after some
months, the beautiful Signora Marchis
had no lover, but it appeared also that
she never was to have one.
A) ways dressed with an adorable ele
gance, with a luxury full of good taste,
the beautiful Gemma loved to amuse
herself, moving freely in that society
new for her, rinding herself in her right
place as a marvelous plant in a vase of
valuable porcelain, developing itself in
all its splendor. She went to dances, to
the theatre, enjoying the plebiscite of
admiration provided by her beauty, co
quetting a little with her adorers, flut
tering about the fire in order to make
tliem sparkle, her wings of a golden but
ter'ly, but never letting herself be

wr-Tig t o complain of his destiny. And
What of the terribly unexpected had
he now discovered in the depths of tho
pure sapphire of Gemma's eyes? Was
there arisen in his soul the doubt that
that faithfulness against every trial,
that coldness toward her admirers, was
nothing but the wish to preserve intact
2 position acquire' I with difficulty, and
that precisely to that position was di
rected all the tenderness shown toward
himself! 1 do not know, but the vivid
and impetuous joy of the wedding was
no longer in him, although his love re
mained the same, and a painful doubt
thrilled in his voice when he replied to
the playful confidence of Gemma, for
cing himself to laugh, too.
'Take care, now, take care the ven
geance of the tyrant hangs over you" -
Ah, the poor tyrant, how he loved her!
How she had known how to bind him
with her little hands, white and per
fumed as two lilies! For nothing in the
world would he have discovered the
truth, changed into certainty his fo
menting doubt; so she had only to ask in
order to obtain; for now for him that
love of wnich he doubted had become his
life, and he felt a painful stricture at his
heart, at the mere thought, that a day
might come when he would be obliged
to refuse her something. Yet that day

A f'.-w nights before the isth I5rum;iire
a little scene was enacted at my house
which would be void of interest but
for the circumstances.
Gen. Bonaparte, th"it lodging at Rue
Chantereine. had come to have a talk
with vie about the preparations for the
eventful day. 1 was then living in line
Taitbout, in a house which has since be
come No. 21, 1 believe. It stood at the
back of a courtyard, and running from
the first flixir there were galleries which
led to wings looking on the street. My
drawing room was lighted with several
candles. It was 1 o'clock in the morn
ing, and we were in the middle of a very
animated conversation when we heard a
great noise ia the street. To the rum
bling of carriages was added tho gallop
ing f an escort of cavalry.
Suddenly tho carriages stopped right
before the door of my house. The general-turned
pale, and I quite believe I
did the same. The idea struck us both
at tho rami' time that they were coming
to arrest us by order of the directory. I
I-h wo.it the canui. s and crept stealthily
along the gallery to one of the outside
wings, from which I could see what was
going i'i the stre---t. Por so'".- nine 1

tho tumult, but at la t I discovered the
