That the poor old man waa dying was appa
rent to all who knew him. It Is truo that the
people at tbe thoatroall h3 a good langh when
they found ont that Fere Brosoaa, the gen
eral messenger during thedaytiino ami the bast
vloUniat in the evening, ha1 taken it into his
bead to fall in lovo with tho beautiful Theo,
the creator of tho "Jolio Farf unicuso'' that
had now Leon t unning for a long time, aui
with a constantly increasing success. Yes,
all Paris had been coming to be doliKlitc-J, no,
by tho etnpld couplets and tbe dialousi, but
ty the mocking, witty, adorable emilo of a Ji
viue aknpticism, 'nhicb Hosted arotin l llio my
lips of tbe charming chmtcuse with tbo Liltor
ness of a ntire and the noftno-t of a taic-ti.

lose U;ir powjr, and it was 6i:Iy uobs and
aiglis that be got out of his big l;ass viol.
At wii'li liin4 as thus Peru Bios.ieau fol
lowed the s sore at haphazard, caring for
nothing, d-jaf to all r6primaud. Hut wlrn
rbe appeared he straightened bimsolf up, and
it was rsnllv toucbiug to sea l.o-.v the obscure
musician eometl to grow Inspired, and bow
Diu. b rual soul he put into the sonorous
groauiugs of bis musical ins rument They
Lad not Leu a long time guosding Lis faecrot,
and tbe ill-natured, pitiless jokings had beg'in
to wound tho heart of ono wbo would have died
rather than con fens the truth. Ho pauwed to
laugh, poor follow; but hosufferod frightfully
when his near neighbor, tbe drummer, would
whiepcr: "Attention, Brosseau ! Behave your
stdf. She is looking at you," and oue night ho
nearly fainted wbou tbe trombone
player Lauded him a note appointing
a rendezvous aud which was
signed ''Ixjume Tlieo." Toor man! be said
nothing; but be bowed his head bo humbly and
looked eo sad withal that any other person,
than a Frenchman would huvo boon dis
armed by his Buppliaut eye. Uut tho
musicians of tbe orchestra were inexor
able. You aoo, they bad had to play tho
same accompaniment to tbo eaino Htupid
couplets for more than LtKJ uigbu, nnd they
were already becoming liko the Comanche and
tho Sioux of tbe far west in America. Tho
merriment grew much greater when thev
found out at tho theatre that ti e old man bad
given the stage door keeper a line bouquet for
the Htar, but with strict directions not to teii
who it came from. M. Brocp.ean's salary oulj
amounted to 1 francs a mouth and the bou
quet cost him half or that amoiu.t He was at
once nicknaniod the "itussian Prince," and tbo
second low comedian, a conceited chap just out
of the conservatoire, insisted that ho must he a
relative of the rich Yankee, VauderhilL Then
ho was compelled to accompany two or three
of tbe musicians, as many of the actors and
half a dozen of the ballet girls and tigurautes
to a forty sous supper, and iu various ways
was made the victim of a series of jokes that
were without sonae or mercy. And with the
sound of tears in his voice he would say:
"But no! I astmre you but no:"
That was alL Ho had not manly conrago to
lie any stronger, and when he, pool old bach
elor, would return at night to his little room
in the rue Blanche he would tkrow bimseir ou
his bod and weep like a child, holding in his
band, meanwhile, the photograph of the one
he loved devotedly.
Of course I'ere Crosseau could not stand
this always. Indeed he soon had to succumb
to sickness, and lh;y carried him off to a hos
pital. Ho did not suffer much; it waa simply
tbe complete breaking down of tbe system;
moreover, he could not sntTer for he Wn's cou
stautly thinking or hor and-Wishing with long
ing, ever royal heart that he could eos her
once again. Lying there iu the long public
ward where the white glow of the niglit
lamps touched the ourtains of the low cots,
he would remain with his eyes wide
open following with a fixed look a fantastic
visio a ghost-likeMolie rarfunieUfie"of hiaowu
creation. And while the fear which had laid
hold of him was slowly devouring what was
left of him it seemed to him that she had at
last guensed his love, that alio had not laughed
at bim like the othor had, aud that knowing
that he was too weak to go to tbe theatre she
had come to play for him aud him aloiia. AT
torsuch a night as this tbe doctor when payin;;
his visits tha next morning would stop at cot
No. tf-7, would nod his head wisely and eay to
the young medical students who aocompauiod
There is a case of ataxic, gentleman."
Soou the nervous crisis became more fre
quent. He would call aloud for Madame Then,
beg that some oue might be eeut for her, aud
would keep on ayiug :
"I tell you she promised me that e'ae would
One evening at tho theatre Madams Thso re
ceived in her dressing room tha Yiseount d'X.
aud a friend who had come to be her com
pany at a supper chez Bignon after the per
formance. She accepted their invitation, aud it
was at a well nerved table iu the Avenue do
I'Opera that she learned by chance the iragij
story in which, without suspecting, it she bad
bad eo much to do. The viscount told it to
her, laughingly, while they were drinking each
other's health in a glass, of ohampagne frapp.
And he mingled with his recital tho jokes of
th club and cafes, and merely accused Theo
of being the inevitable death of a very old bass
violinist Madame became grave and made
no reply; but those present saw that she was
really touched. At 11 o'clock the next day
Madame Theo arrived at tbe hospital. She
waa dressed in a very plain black gown, aud
asked to be shown to the hospital of I'ere Bros
aeau. When she perceived the old man lying
on hia cot his beard uncombed, his eyes sunk
en, and his hairy chest and arms bare she i e
c iled instinctively. The man was dying; and,
still filled with the same idea, he cried with the
saddest imaginable voice:
"I know she will come, I know she will come
I how she will come."
Then tha heart of the beanslful artiste wa
deeply touched; and seized with a sublime pitv
she approachod the dying man without diruai
aud without fear.
"I have come, my brave, good friend," s&id
ha, putting into her words all her power of
tenderness as a woman and an actress. Tere
Broasean raised his head frow bis pillow. The
sound of the adored voice caused a shudder to
pass over his body, lis looked her in the fao
witn wild astonishment, men, wun an inde
scribable iov, he drew her nearer to him.
"Closer." ho whispered; come closer."
Mme. Iheo obeyod. Moved by the impulses
of her heart, the elegant artiste drew up very
close to the dying man. His eyes were already
closing, and convulsive sighs shook his frame.
He felt with his hand for tier's, aud when ha
had found tliem he placed them over hit
heart Then, in a voice which was but a sigh,
and still followiug his dream, ho murmured:
"I thou love."
Poor Mme. Theo was pale with emotion, but
she ro longer heistated. She bent down gently
and fairly kissed the dying old man on the lips.
Shakon as though bv an electrio shock, M.
BroBRo i reopened his eyes, aud a celestial
smile illuminated his emaciated faco.
"Ah," he murmured, "thou art good," and
slowly without any effort, as though it occur
red to him that it was useless to live longer, bo
let his inert head fall back on tho pillow. He
had crossed over the river.
It la ovening, and the landscape stretches
out before one in virgin loveliness. The sua
god, ere he bids adieu to this scone, kisses tha
sinuous bayous and streaks their mirrored topi
with silver, brightens up the moss that streams
from the heads and limbs of trees, and throw
one blood-red gleam through vistas of ever
green dying away into bias dreaminess. Then
iba twilight comes on, and soon the pale cres
cent fling its mystio beams upon the earth.
The giant oaks, bedecked with moss, seem to
assume fantastic shapes. They create sugges
tions of gibbets aud of corpees, bf rotten rigging
and of the tattered sails of ships drifting to
the unknown shore. How Dore could bavs
painted every form of goblincy, every fancy
of gbostline, every primness of witchcraft,
every horror of death suggested by them! A
weird sccll takes hold oi vau. You imagine a
deep mourning drooping over the plains. The
wood aud grove, the reods and bayous ap
pear to lament soma great boraivemeut, some
terrible death. It aaems as though this laud
were yet weeping for Pan. And these, or rec
ollections of the sylvau gods aud nymphs of
the antique wo.'ldj crowd thick and fast uoou
you; tha great dreaminess of the land mesmer
izes you with unutterable sweetness. After
ward, when you have returned to Now Orleans
and its gay frivolities, its west end n J its p&n
iah forts, its glittering saloons and its fascin
ating masquerade balls, its biilliant halls and
luxuriously appointed gambling rooms, its
"CieoU and Spanish-American beauties and
its fetes and pat tie and thousand and one
other attractions, that mesmerism mil not hav
passed away, nor tha wondrous witchery of tha
ncbaoUd scenery wholly blotted front tho

I got thero. Jerry McAuley took possession of

the big glass transparency over the door, but
the word "Garden" has been changed to "Mis

EURDETTE'S LOVE BTOET.
ni Loie for the Utile luvnlid Lady

Bob Bnrdotto is known tho country over a
tho humorist of Tho Burlington Hawkeyo. He
is (ho m i.t successful of our funny muu. His
I ;o!;s have a constant and increasing sale. Hi
salary from The Hawkeyo gives him a hand
eemo income, and his little sketches command
tho host price from tho magazines. In ad-li"
tion ho has $150 to J'i'-O a night whenever he
wtit.ts to take a lecturing tour of ono or twonty
w:.-tks. ilia humor is delieato, truo and abund
ant, and lie is an honor to tho lighter American
letter (eoatiHO of his literary achievement
But bettor and in ire honorable than all this
is tho story of his hearthstone. Wht-u he wa
a young man of tweiity-aix ho was engaged to
bo married to Miss Carrio Garret, of I'coria,
I1L Sho was a frail and delieato girl, and oue
evening Burdette wax summoned to her bel
eid'i with tho message that ah was dying.
I.iitlo hope was cnb rtainod for her lifo when
ho reached her. It was determined at tho wish
of both ho and sho that thoy ahuiild bo mar
ried, even if ii 'ath should at once claim the
brido. Tho ceremony took place in liftern
minutes, the little lady being able to respond
only by a motion of the eyes and a gontle pre
uui o of tho hand. In spite of tho doctors1 pro
dictions sho rallied and was finally well enough
to move to tho quiet and cosy home her bus
band has provided for her.
But sho has been an invalid all ho life. Moro
than onco her lifo has boon despaired of. Usu
ally she has been confined to hor room and un
abio to walk. One night at a theatre in Phila
delphia tho writer saw a palo and earnest man
making bis way to a private Ikx, with a deli
cate, clinging woman in his arms. Her girlish
face was full of a pathos that passes descrip
tion, but was wonderfully pretty. And strangely
happy, too filled with content Bverybody
made way for tho little lady, and her great and
tender eyes seemed to send thanks to every
gdiitlemun who moved aside in courtesy. It
was Bob Burdetto and his invalid wife. This
is an index of his life. The temptations of the
world, tho dazlo and glittor of the society that
has welcomed him tho converse with brilliant
men, tiio club, tbe theater, wealth, fame all
and either of them failed to win his heart away
from the little woman who sat at his fireside
ami lived on his love and sympathy.
Nor was there lacking a practical reward of
his devotion. Mrs. Burdetto has boon the in
spiration of her husband's life at once bis
rpur and his counsellor. She first discovered
tho rich quality aud tho spontaneity of Bob's
humor, and the homely flavor that would
carry it to tho heart as well as the intelligence
of llio public. Imagine the humorist reading
tlio most laughable stories at tho bedside of
his invalid wifo. He tells himself of bow she
forced him to write his first lecture iu these
"Oiio day when she was lying helpless she
said sho behoved that I could write a lecture
and deliver it successfully and so she sat mo
down to write that lecture, and from time to
time I rebelled with tears and groans and pray
ers. 1 told her that I was too littio, that I had
no voico. and that I couldn't write a lecture any
how. She kept me at it and in due time we
bad a lecture on our hands, 'The Rise and Fall
of Iho Moustache.' This was all right enough.
But now how to get an audience. I thought I
would try it first at K' kuk. If I dolivored it
first in Burlington, eveu though it were tame,
tamer, tamest, I thought thoy might put me on
tho book. But Keokuk hated Burlington, aud
I know if it was flat they would Bay so. Mrs.
Burdette said as she waa responsible for the
lecture, Bhe was going to hoar it dolivored. So
I carried her aboard the cars. We went to
Kookuk and the people pronounced it good."
From that day he has prospered wherever
his homely, insignificant littio figure has been

What's the bigget shad I ever saw? Well,
now, about here I've soen an eight-pounder
but there's a shad iu Florida that beats the
world. It isn't exactly a shad, but is ono of the
family, and down thero they call 'om tarpoorm.
I'll never forget the firt ono l see. We were
hauliu a net at Mosquito inl-jt for mullet (and
they're a fish for you!), and had commenced
tho iu run when I see somethin1 tlaeh just liko
a sheet of silver, and the next momout a big
fish !ept out of tho wator about ton feet, a
Bhinin' iiko sli ver for all the world. I'll tell ye
tbo wav that net wont in was acantiou, man
frovo roots and all, and in less than no time
wo had the tarnoon on the beach, and such a
lifrh a man don t don't Res moro than once in a
lifetime. It looked liko a regular herrin' or
shad, only I am cussed if it wasn't nigh on to
ten teot long, and each scale looked liko a pol
ished trade dollar with tho silver massed ou in
lumps, tho wbolo scalo as big as the palm of
yer hand. It was out nnd out tho gorgeousost
fish I ever paw. They're vory rare. Wc kept
tho scales, and they brought 51 a pioco aa curi
osities ; so, conntin' up what all hands niado,
the one fish paid about StA. The floih waa
tfn, too: but onty ono or two are caught a

I knew of one case in which a young man
from a western state was in Washington seek
ing government employment One of tho
eenators from hia state was working indus
triously for bim, and had been promised a
position. The young man, however, got ont of
patience, and advertised that he would pay
for a place. One of the smart brokers an
swered tho advertisement, and tho western
young man called on him. After a short con
versation, tbe terms were agreed upon and
the broker assured the gentleman that he
would get him a place. Then ho asked bis vis
itor if bs bad any references; anybody who
knew him and would vouch for his character,
otc. "Oh, yes," replied the young man, very
thoughtlessly, "Senator is my friend,
and has been promised a position for me,"
naming the department chief who had made
the promise. Next day the broker waited upon
the senator and expressed great interest in the
young man. He was anxious to see him placed,
and was satisfied be could be of service in ob
taining him a position if the senator would but
permit him (the broker) to aid in the undertak
ing. Tha senator, who, by the way, was one
of tbe most honest aud credulous, easy-going
men I 6ver saw. gladly accepted tha proffered
aid, and iu a nhort time the broker was in all
ihe facts concerning the case. He obtained a
note from the senator, addressed to the depart
ment chief, in relation to tba matter, and thus
worked himself right iuto it He was informed
that thu iloi.Ai trneut had not lost sight of the
case, aud that ba might say to the soaator that
a vacauev would occur in a lew aays. a u
broker thm carried to the young man the mos
sage which callsd bim to the department to re
cetv bis appointment, aud claimed to have
procured the position for bim. For eight
months that contidiug youth paid the broker
-'5 per mouth, only to learn aiterwarus van
the man had bad uo more influence in gettiug
bin, w.irk than bad the man in the moon. The
young man is still here lu government employ,
aud is a most worthy gentleman hence I do
not care to give bia name; but I've no doubt
he is a type of many case You may set
dowu any man wbo offers to procure govern-'
meat place for pay as a fraud, and if he denies
it refer him to uio, and I II guarantee to prof
