The rlrlor trouhliMt wore not h
than IholnU'i lor trmililosof the family.
Thn revolutionary spirit was li'l I
with hh'Ii vlolciioo at St. Slffren that
many of the richest famtllf wore
phllped toahandon tin) plrn'o. The ro
mil I it of these, movement sometimes
reached oven within our wall, " when
these symptom of tumult reached na
ns there are no m-h timid creature an
nun wo pressed ono ajralnttttho other
like a Ihx'k of frightened sheep.
One morning, after a night during
which onr it a we hiul hoon more
troubled than timial, Mine. Vcranl pro
edited herself Bt the grate, asking to
HHk to tho aldioas and myself The
abbes reHponded to her apiwat, and
leaning upon my arm, In a state, of ex
tremely violent excitement, wocamoto
tho grate, and I saw that my friend
wa very much disturbed. She opened
the conversation, Informing us of tho
decision of M. Verani' The tumult
were becoming each day more serious,
and they thought It would bo much
better to r move before things came to
extremes. She was about to continue,
when tho abbess, placing hor hand
tipon ray arm, cried: "O, Angcllqnel
what s'hull we do?" and throwing her
self backward Into hor chair tho burHt,
Into tear.
Mmo. Verani nt the same tlmo gave
me a significant look, and I succeeded
while occupied with tho abbens, In
placing myself between her and the
grato, and I received a package which
IslIp)Md Into my pocket. Having at
tained her object, my friend took her
loavoj (and as the eyes that used to
watch tho novices were closed forever,
I soon found an opportunity to ojMn my
packet In the presence of Paulino.
The news It contained was very In
teresting. There whs first a letter
from Mine. Verani to mo; another from
Edward Ileaumoiit for his sister, and a
third from the cousins of Pauline from
Switzerland. Thoy all had tho same
purpose. 0 They gave alarming details
concerning the frightful political con
dition of the country, and said that
they had heard of some roorts of a ro
llgleuso who had been Imprisoned
twenty years In the dungeons of tho
convent, and that the people threatened
to force tho door of tho monastery to
assure themselves of the fact.
These letters declared that the post
Won of the sister would bo horrible If
they were exposed, without protection,
to tho brutality of the furious populace
They ended with the most pressing
prayers, made In the name of friend
hip and the most ardent Interest, for
the three sisters, Pauline, ClarUse, and
Anollque, to allow themselves to be
persuaded, If ary tumult took place, to
make a knot In their veil, and to abun
don themselves to tho protection of
those who addressed them by the words
calling them "the sisters of the knotted
"What shall wedo?' raid I to Pau
line. "What we can," rescinded she.
"Are you ahlo to hesitate when Provi
dence oMns tho door before us? Khali
we not escape from this horrible place?
What will her brother say when ho
learns that she is no more?"
Wo wept freely .at tho thought of
this o devoted brother writ n he should
learn the terrlblo end of hi sister,
We asked ourselves If wo ought not
to give some alarm to the abbes; but
wo were arrested In this project by the
fear of perhaps hastening tho death of
tho unfortunate creature whom they
had shut up In the subterranean chain
ber. We dldi not dare to talk directly
about the subject of our letters, but we
poke to the mother and sisters of
may thing they had heard, asking
them what they would do If tho con
vent should be treated llko that of St.
Clara of Nice.
"If such a Hhing happens," said
Mother AImee,'"I will hide among the
debris and there give up my spirit, for
It 1 here that I have lived during tho
time that 1 have been under the long
protection of our Mere de Mlserlcordo,
and It It here that I wish to leave my
old bone that my dust may mingle
with the sister that have preceded
"Mother," said Pauline, who had
drawn Mother Almoe away from tho
other sister, "what would become of
Sister Agnes If the prison were
"Agnes!" said the old woman, trem
bling; "what do you know about her?"

"Wholol.1 jou that she wasdesd,

"Hid you not scRk of iior C'larlsw?"
anki'd Mother Almee.
"No," replied Pauline, "of Mor Ag-1

cried the mother, "How could she bo
still living? It Is at least thirty years
since that, I tell you."
"Hut why did they Imprison her?"
questioned Pauline.
"I don't know," responded tho aged
nun. "Wno am 1 10 pass juugmeni
upon my superiors? Have they not
dono what the church commanded?
Our holy church, is It not infallible?"
At tho sumo tlmo she made the sign
of tho cross, murmured a prayer, and
then fell Into her ordinary stato of Im
becility. "Poor soul!" said Pauline; "she I
not among those who deceive; at least
she 1 Innocent of this crime."
"Those who decolvo," I repeated;
"your principles change, then, Pau
"That is possible," said she; "but
this poor Agnes."
"God only know what ha boeoino
of hor," said I; "but I am tired with
all these mysteries. I have lost all
confidence In my spiritual guides. I
am ready to doubt all forms of religion
and to bellevo that they have been In
vented by ambitious men and women In
view of their Interests."
"Why," said Paulino, "have you for-
fotten Clarlsse and all that she said in
that frightful subterranean interview?
Are you able to doubt for a single in
itant tho reality of what supported
that young girl, so sweet and delicate,
In such terrible circumstance as those
In which she found herself? O An
gellquel there ought to ho In religion
more than we have been able to learn
up to this time."
I am unablo to recall the rest of the
conversation; tho event which fol
lowed have effaced It from my memory.
It was about four'day later day
during which nothing extraordinary
occurred, and which wo passed In tho
same course of monotonous observance
that, being in tho garden with Pau
lino, and deeply absorbed in eonversa
tlon iiMin the details which hud been
mentioned In tho letter of Mmo. Verani,
we wore surprised, during a paino in
our conversation, to hear a rumbling
sound like a distant cataract when it
alls In a torrent,
"Hear!" cried Pauline.
The noise continued and became
more and more distinct.
"It I tho wind," said I, for though
the day bad ticon beautiful, still there
had been a great deal of stir among
the cedar branches.
"No," said Paulino with a frightened
air; "no, it Is not tho wind,"
"It Is the mountain torrent," said I,
"and if Jt In that we will see If the
brook is swollen."
We wont toward the grate, but we
saw no change. Tho brook continued
its Kaeeable course between it flower
bordered banks, and wo looked at It In
"() Angellquo," said Pauline, "why
am I so sad, so full of apprehension?"
and Joining her hand sho continued:
"O (iod! God bo merciful, direct us,
guide us; If we are In error, dlslpato
the clouds of doubt and the shadows
which obscure our minds. Lead us
Into the truth; make u capablo of
placing our confidence where it only
should bo placed, and as to the rest as
to thl world, do for us a seemcth good
unto Thee."
In saying these word sho threw her
arm around me. and then continued;
"Hut If Hi Thy good pleasure, OLord
grant that I muy not lie separated from
my Angollque."
For a moment we were carried away
by our feeling, but recovering our
selves, we perceived that the nolne in
"Oh heaven!" cried Paulino, "St,
Slffren i in revolt. Ho you not dltttin
gulsh the sound of voices? It U e
general tumult."
Saying theso word she ran toward
tho house, and meeting some of the
sUten sho spread the alarm in the es
tabllshment. There wa a narrow door
in an arch leading from one of the
chamber which oiened upon a narrow
circular stairway that led to a high
tower from which one could see the
whole village. This door was ordinar
ily closed; but the abbess, bearing our
cries, sent to find tho portress, and

Al thl moment the ab!ess paswd

swiftness, and giving command to rail
Father Joachim. Tho aluV l'lng
awav, many of the aged nuns retired to
Ihelr cells, doubtless to Invoke their
wooden Idol thHt were about to Ihi des
troyed. The younger sisters remained
by tho tower window gn.lng upon the
village, and not noticing the approach
of night until the black outlines of the
village wall were seen uion the Hori
zon, and a new luminary appeared to
lighten the seene. Thlsproved to be an
enormous lnmflre that hud been kindled
In tho grand quare. Tho tumult In
creased, and tho most horrible howling
was heard In tho street, Hut as no
preparation seemed to be made for an
attack upon the convent, and as wo had
omitted vesjiers, we were called to
compline an hour sooner than usual.
Father Joachim was not present, and
another priest olllelated in hi jJaco.
It was tho laitdny of September, and
night had already fallen before tho
service wn ended. Just at tho mo
ment when It was to terminate, a
frightful noise resounded in tho long
corridor of the convent and died away
In tho chapel. Tho glimmering light
of the torches Illuminated the sanc
tuary. Kachofthe sculpture seemed
to detach itself and stand out In relief
upon tho wall. A terrlblo blow struck
upon tho door made tis tremblo.
Throwing our books away wo fled in all
directions sfwne to tho right side and
other to tho left, while Paulino and I
ran to tho cemetery, trying to open a
door which gave entrance to tho gar
den; but before we could ascorta'n
whether the door would open, 1 heard
my name pronounced, and the portress,
all in a tremblo, told me that I must go
to the saloon atal present myself to tho
mayor of St. Slffren
"Heaven!" I cried, "what now?"
The portress was not able to r spond
to this question, but tearing mo away
from Paulino for thl faithful friend
would have followed me even to death
sho pushed me before her Into tho
saloon, where I found tho abbes In
conversation with a man of tho coarsest
aspect, who wu sitting outside tho
grato, Ho was seated, though the ab
bess was standing, arid he wore thotrl
colored cockade,
"This young girl," said he, contlnu
Ing a conversation already commenced
"that i to say, the cousin of Citizen
Verani, I the person I wish to see.
Citizen Verani i one of my friends,
and that 1 why I wish to show some
affection to hi cousin. You havo no
need to trouble yourself a to my mo
tive, and I do not wish to hear your
Jargon. I know that tho rest of you
cloistered people are accustomed to
fabricate falsehoods; that Is why I warn
you that I know Citlzoni ss Cecllo HI
eordl, who ha lived some tlmo with
her cousins at 8t, Slffren, and I desire
to sjieiik with her myself." Then per
celvlng me ho said:
"Come on, young girl, and lift your
veil; show mo your face. It Is possible
that I havo seen soma less beautiful."
I looked at the ablsiss, to know what
mut bo dono, and thl short delay pro
voked a torrent of oath and blasphemy
on tho part of the reprobate, When
ho had looked atme tome tlmo through
the grate, he laughed and made some
pleasantries aliut the barriers of the
grate, and swore that ho would break
thorn down a soon as all the young
birds were driven into their nests,
"Ah well!" my beautiful clllzenoss, I
desire you to understand that you are
a free as myself, and that you can do
nothing better than to put yourself
under my protection; and If you are
not happy It will not bo my fault. That
I what I have to say to you, Cltlzcno
Hleordl. Hut to you," said ho, turning
towards the sutKirlor, his features agl
tated with anger and fury, "to you I
have to talk In another manner. Do
not flatter yourself, vile instrument of
vile hypocrites, that jour abominable
action are unknown; do not hope to
escape the vengeance of tho jiooplo.
You trornblo, I eo it, and you havo
reason. I have only to sav tho word,
and ajustly enraged populace will force
these door and oblige you to avow your
ecrctand hidden action. You have
only ono chance for safety, miserable
woman! Show u the unfortunate crea
ture that you have hold Imprisoned so
many year. Go immediately and open
her dungeon and bring her here, or
and ho pronounced a horrible oath
the people will enter here and tear you
in piece, limb by limb."
