, CHAPTER III.
HS. ABDOBY'8 8ES8UUUTIES.
I find that tho lost chapter must be
fiverj to the sensibilities of Mrs. Ar
ory Jit was Christmas Day.. , Even on this
blessed day, that tender-hearted lady
could not lay osido hex sensibilities and
enjoy herself. Fo just think, will you,
how many poor there are ! How could
a tender-hearted woman enjoy a feast
when so many were hungry? iUwas
not iu thegood woman's heart, lam
Biue, to bo for a minute obliviousto the
sorrows of the poor.
She hud also another anxiety. The
dinner hour was approaching, -and she
was to have several friends. Among
others, the rector and his wife were to
-dine with Mrf Ardory on this day. All
were there the rector only being ab

what Mrs.jArdory was tbiiking about-

rector with excitement, leading the old

relate;. A correspondent writing from
Canyyjlle sends us the following iu
tereatxng incident whicli occurretl near
thpt place: Abont ten davs since,
Henry Blann and his wife, of-XJanyon-yilloprecuict,
went out into the moun
tains to look after their sheep. Wbeu
abpnt4 three miles from home his two
dojgs got after a bear, and after a snTo
cliseucceedcd in compelling the bear
to climb a tree. About the time that
Mr. Bland aud,lus wife reached the foot
oflthq tree another ferocious bcat-rmt
in an appearance and savagely uttacked
the dogs In the immediate presene of
Mr. and Mrs. Bland. The light now
became animated and furious, dugs aud
bear reHing over cnU. other in the death
troggle down a deep mountain into tne
canyon below. Bland was armed with
i. Henry title, but dared not shoot for
fur of killing his dogs. Now came the
question how to roscno the dogs ; only
two cartridges were in the ritle, and
tbe& had to bo iibed to tho best advan
tage t Mrs. Bland urged her husband
to go to the assistance of the dogs,
while she, hlone and unarmed, under

the tree. He started down into tho
canyon to whero the contlict was raging,
gntdetl by tlie growls and yelps of tho
dogs and bear. Ho arrived not a nio
uuuit too soon, for Bruin wtis evidently
getting tho beat of it, and would only
be. pacified bv (bo la.t shot from the
'now empty rille.
- It was dark when island returned to
his vife at thoootof the tree. The
situation was anything but flatttering.
Thb empty riflo was of little use, and
upon the deteranatien of Mrs. Bland
to sit up with the' bear, he started for
homo for more ammunition. Tho lady,
being reinforced bj tho bleeding dogs,
now felt suro tbat she was mistress of
the. situation. With no lire, far from
homo, in the midst of craggy moun
tains, this 'indomitable lady dared to
hold at bay one of the most ferocious
monsters of the forest. The bear, not
liking his new home, determined to
descend the tree, but our herbinewith
a stick and tho barking of dogs, coav

1 Life in India.
The usual routine of European life in
India is to rise ut "gun-llro" (five I
o'clock), go out for an airing in lwat or
pulaniiuiu for two full hours, bathe aud
dress at eight, take breakfast ut nino,
lunch at one, and siesta from two to
four, when everybody retires, and,
whether one wishes to sleep or not, ho
is beenro from interruption, and as the
full benefit of being en dixhabillc for
the two most oppressive hours of the
day. At four tho second bath is taken ;
at fivo nil go out in full dress in open
carriages, and after a rapid drivo over
some of the public thoroughfares, the
horses aro walked slowly up and down
the .esplanade, where all the fashionable
world assemble at this hour to sec and
be seen, and-exchange parsing courte
sies or comments. At half-past six,
" the course" is deserted, and brilliant-Jy-lighted
dining-rooms are thronged
with guests eager to test the quality of
the rich and varied delicacies- of -which
an oriental dinner consists. This is
tho principal meal of the day, aud, oc
cupying often two or throe honri, it is
mode not merely an epicurean feust, but
also an intellectual aud social banquet.
Strong coffee, served in the tiniest of
porcelain cups, follows the guests en
their return to the drawing-rooms, and
music, conversation, reading and com
pany fill up the hours till midnight,
when the third bath is taken immediate
ly before retiring.

ess Du Barry is described as follows by
au eye-witness: "TTpon arriving at tho
Pont au CFmngo T found a very large
crowd .assembled then'. I had no need
to ask the reason:' of the assemblage, for
ut that roorrwnt I heard tho most ter
rible cries, and almoet immetliately saw
come out of tho court of tho Palace of
Justice that fatal cart which Barren)
has called 'Ue bier of tho living.' A
woman wa in that cart; which slowly
drew near the spot upon which I was
standing ner figure, "her attitude, her
gesture, exprcsedhe most frightful
despair. Alternately red and deathly
pale, she struggled with tho executioner
and his two sisaistantsj who could scarce
ly' hold her upon the bench, and utter
ing thofie piercing cries whicli had first
arrested mo, sho turned incessantly
from one to tho other invoking pity. It
was Madame du Barry, being conveyed
to execution. Only about forty-two or
forty-three years ot ago, tho was still,
in spite of the terror which disfigured
her features, remarkably beautiful.
Clothed wholly in white like Muriu

contrast similar to that presented by a "
funeral pall cast over a collin. ' In tho
name of heaveu,' sho cried amidst her
tears and sobs, 'save me, save m ! 1
have never done ill to any one; save me!"
Tho delirious frenzy of tltia unfortunate
woman produced such an impression
among tho people Unit those who came
to gloat over her sulTeringrf hart uot the
courage to east at her a word of insult. "

Silk In America.
Troof of the healthful growth of silk - t
culture and manufacture in tho United, j
States is given in the following brief
citation from an elaborate article in thy
New York 'Time: Since tho homo
manufacture of silk got a firm fating,
the importation of thc-artirJo ha fallen
off, and in tho nine months completed
of 1873 the importations of ilk have
been much less than in tho correspond
ing nine mouth pf 1871 and 1S72. For; ,1
instance, in 1871 the quantity of im
ported silk entered for consumption
amounted in valuo to 323,8$',1"3, and
for, warehousing 50,700,2:33, giving a
total .of fcJ0,5tf,'JHG. In 1872 the total
wai 831,012,608, and forthe correjjpond; v
ing months of this year it is reduced to
22,701,818, br S7.832,f68 loss than
18H, and 88,150,790 lew tlian in 1872.
The' total dry goo! import for 1873 of
wool, cotton, Ilex, silk and thoso com
iag under the denomiua iou raiaccllanc
oni, are 810.977J9G less than in 1871
and $ 19,1558,210 1cm tlurn in 1872. It
wil be thus seen that the decrease
of silk importation represent one
third of the decrease in the' Z.
dry goods imDorlations. Xow, with
thw falling off in imports of silk, th
looms of the country arc at work and m
the de&unds of consumen are steali1y
met, while there is no inctmned cot to
the coosaaier. The silk trade 'of
