death cf a miner makes a vacancy and ho se
cures employment In the Vulture mine. Ma-
hon , ono of the minors , nnd his daughter
Catherine , explain the work to him and as
sist him the first day. Ho hears the mutterings -
ings of the minors against the company and
threats of nstriko. The exactions of the su
perintendent and the small wages received
goad the workmen to the verge of despera
tion and paved the war to the comlncr strug
gle. Mahon again befriends Anton , nnd se
cures lodgings for him at ItassaneurV , a lip *

ation to leave Is overcome by the kindness of
the struggling miners , and ho decides to bat
tle with them.
Polnno , the residence of Mr. Gregory
was six miles cast of Montson , on the
road loading to Jolsollo. It was a largo ,
tqoato , unpretending house , built at the
beginning of the last century ; bat of the
vast grounds which once surrounded It ,
only twenty-six acres rnmnlnod , used as
n garden that yielded the best fralt and
vegetables in the whole country. Allttl
wood extended over what , in forme
years , had boon a park , while one of th
greatest curiosities of that level plain
whore ono conld cocnt the lirgo tree
from Marchlonnca to Borugnios , was an
avenue of old lltnos , forming an arch o'

This morning the Gregorys arose nbont
8 o'clock an hour earlier than uiual , for
the tempest of the night had unnerved
During the absence of her husband
who had gone out to see what damage
had boon done by the storm , Mrs.
Gregory In her slippers and flannel dress
ing gown , wont down Into the kltehen.
She was fifty-eight years of ago , short ,
fat , and with a cheerful face , contrasting
strangely with the palo whiteness of her
"Mclanto , " anld she to the cook , "If
you bavo made the milk broad , my hus
band Is ready. Mies Cecil will not rlso
for a half hour , and she will out it with
her chocolate. What a surprise It will
The cook , a scrawny old woman , who
had served them for thirty years ,
' That's true , 'twill be a surprise. My
fire Is lit and the oven's getting hot ; and
then Hororlne'a going to help mo a llttlo. "
Honorlne , a girl of twenty years , who
was taken when an Infant and brought
up in the house , now served as chamber
maid. In addition to these two , there
were a coachman , named Francis , a gar-
Jener , and a florist. These domestics
formed by themselves a little family , llv-
ng together In good fellowship.
Mrs. Gregory who , whllo in bed had
planned the surprise of the milk bread ,
waited to sea the dough pat in the oven ,
fho largo kitchen was kept scrupulously
: lean with its arsenal of sauce pans and
> ther cooking utensils. There was an
igreeablo odor prevadlng the whole room
rom the well-filled closets.
"I hope you have put plenty of eggs In
t , " said Mrs. Gregory as she passed Into
, ho dining-room.
In addition to the furnace which
farmed the whole house , a bright coal
ire enlivened this room , and the large
able , the chairs , a mahogany buffet and
wo easy chairs , all indicated a love o
omfort" They scarcely ever onlered the
ecoptlon room ; this was the living room
if the family.
Just then Mr. Gregory , becomingly
tressed In a red fuitisn jacket , entered
lo was sixty years of age , with largo ,
lonest features , and his curling snowy
ocks gave him a patriarchal look. Ho
iad seen the coachmsu and gardener ; no
roster damage bad been done by the
term than the falling of a chimney.
iach morning ho loved to look over Pie
line , which was not large enough to
auso much care , but from which ho de
lved the happiness of a landlord.
"Whore is Cecil ? " ho asked , "is shoot
, ot going to got up to-day ? "
"I do not Know , " answered his wife.
'I think I hoard her stirring , though. '
The table , covered with a white cloth ,
.ad been laid for three.
Honoiino was sent to sea what had be-
ome of mademoiselle. She returned ini-
ledlately covered with emlles , and said , f
n entering the room :
"Oh ! if you could BOO Miss Cecil. She
[ cops like an angel. It is a plossaro to
jok at her. "
The father and mother exchanged ten
"Let us go up and see her , " sold ho ,
1th a smile.
"Ah , the poor darling , " murmured she ,
I will go. "
Together they went up stairs. The
bomber whither they wont WAS the only
Etal luxury of the house ; It was hung
ith blue silk and prepared with lacquer
irnlturo , wblto threads of blue , to please
10 whim of the spoiled child. In the
osh whiteness of the bed , under the
gbt falling from the window , the snr
an of which was pushed apart , the
onng girl lay sleeping , with her cheek
istlng on her bare arm. She was not
rotty , but sound and healthy. Mature ,
lough only elgbteon , she bad a sapurb
i in and delicious freshness ; her hair was
abnrn and her face round , with a small ,
nbocomlng nose. Her breath came and
ent so softly there was no perceptible
lovomont of the chest.
"That abominable wind must have pro-
anted her from sleeping , " whispered the
The f athor , with a gesture , silenced
or. Both stood tenderly bending over
ad regarding her with admiration , aseho
y there In her virgin parity ; this girl ,
bom they hai BO long desired , given
i them so late in life. They thought
er perfect , as she still slept on , without
iellng their presence. Then a shadow
assed over her immobile face , and ,
enabling lest she should awake , they
ept tllenlly from the room.
' 'Hush 1" said the father at the door ;
Jot.her bavo her nap out. "
" " said the mother "we ai

Ruturnlog to the dining room , they In- d !
ailed themselves in their arm-chsirs ,
hlle the servants , still smllldg at Cecil's
ng sleep , without a murmur kept the
reakfast warm. Ho took a paper and
[ udmne commenced knitting on a woolen tc
lot blanket. It wai veiy warm and
at a sound was heard.
Gregory's fortune , almost forty t hou
nd francs a year , was all In stocks of
10 Mention mines. They spoke of it
Ith oomplaliinco es commencing with
e creation of the company.
At the beginning of the last century a
company was formed for exploration o
oal between Lille and Valenciennes
The first success of the patentees , whiol
later on formed the company of Aczln
encouraged every ono. The ground w i
sounded in each commune ; companiei
wore established and grants made out al
once. In spite of the stupidity of thai
ago , Baron Desrnmaux had left behind
him the memory of a great mind. Foi
four years ho had struggled on without
faltering , in the midst of contlnnal ob
stacles. The first explorations were
frultiois ; new mines were abandoned
after long months of work ; there were
oavlngs and nnddon inundations , destroy
ing the workmen1 ; hundreds of thou
sands of franca were sunk ; then there
was government interference , the panics
of the stockholders , and a contest with
land owners resolved not to rocognlza
the royal grants , if they refuted to treat
with them first. At last the company ,
D srumaux , Panqnonolx & Co. , was
formed to explore the Montson grant , and
the first mines had commenced to glvo
some slight returns , when tire neighbor
ing companies , Oongny , belonging to
Count Oongny , and Jolsollo , belonging to
the company of Cornlllo & Jonard , wont
undor. The 23d of August , 17GO , these
companies were consolidated and the com
pany of the Montson mines , now exist
ing , wna crantcd. The assoismonta they
apportioned in accordance with the stand
ard of the money of tbo tlmo.
In tboso days the _ baron owned Plo-
lalno , nnd ho had in his employ a clerk
named Hnnoro Gregory , n boy from Ar
dennes , the great-grandfather of Loon ,
father of Coctl. At the tlmo of the
treaty of Monston , Honoro , who had
hoarded In a stocking n hundred thou
sand francs , tremblingly yielded them to
his employer. With six thousand llvros
ho took somn shares In the mlno , though
fearing to rob his children of that sum ,
His son Eugene received very small div
idends , and , when ho had foolishly
squandered the other four thousand
francs of his paternal lnhoritancobocamu
very penurious. But llttlo by little the
Interest Increased. Portuno commenced
with Pollclon , who was able to rosllzs
the dream with which his grandfather ,
bho old secretary , had rocked the cradle
} f his infancy , the purchase of Pohino
'or a paltry sum. Then followed years
) f reverses , the clouds breaking somo-
nrhat after the revolution , than lowering
kftor the unfortunate downfall of Nopo-
oon. It was Loon Gregory who realized
'rom the timid and uncertain Investment
if bla grandfather , whoso ten thousand
rancs multiplied with the rising prospor-
ty of tno company. In 1820 they yielded
sent per cent , ton thousand francs. In
1844 , twenty thousand. In 1850 , forty.
Chen there were two years that the dlv
dend wont up to the enormous sum of
ifty thousand franca ; the value of the
tock had increased a hundred fold in a
mndred and some years ,
Mr. Gregory whom they advlsedto BOO
rhen tbo stock wont up so high smlllug-
y refused. Six months later an Indna-
clal crisis broke out ivd the dividends
gain fell to six thousand francs. But
, o still smiled , regretting nothing , for
ho Gregorys now had an obatinato faith
i tholr mlno. It would go up. God
raa good. A religious conviction was
londed with a profound gratitude tor an
ivestmont which , for a hundred yeara ,
ad nourished them In idleness , It was
ell ; their egotism lulled them into fan-
led security , while they fattened them-
lives at their well filled table. This
ad continued from father to son ; why
onturo to displease fate by doubting ?

Happiness was shownred on that homo ,
r'hllo young , Mr. Gregory had married
10 daughter of a Marohlecnea druggist , a
omely girl , without a cent , whom ho
Jored and who In retain made him a
Dod wlfo. Sbo remained at homo , hap-
y with her husband , having no other
ill but bis ; a similarity of tastes united
lem ; a single thought of comfort was
lelrs ; and they lived thns without care
ir forty years. It was an. even life , the
ilrty thousand franca were quietly ex-
anded. But the late birth of Cecil
ided their economy. All her capiices
ere gratified ; a second horse , two more
irrlsgos , even toilets sent from Paris ,
bo added to their joy and they could
Dt find anything too beautiful for her ,
tough they themselves , with a horror of
lory , had retained the costumes of tholr
mth. All unprofitable expense scorned
lollsh for thorn.
Suddenly the door opened , and a
rorg voice cried :
"WellI what is this , hava you broak-
sted without me ? "
It was Cecil , just up , her eyes still
rollon with Bleep. She had eImply
imbed her hair and slipped on a white

This teemed ao strange that they oil

rat gave him tbo appearance cf a cavy -

i close cut hair and largo mustache were

His history was simple. Llko his
cousin , ho had received as an Inheritance ,
some stock in the Montson mine. But
ho , Incited with an anxiety for wealth ,
had hastened to sell when the stock had
gene up to a million. For some months
ho had boon cherishing a scheme. His
wlfo had brought him the little grant of
Yandamo , in which there were only two
mines , Joan-Bnrt nnd Oaaton-BIarlo ,
both in such an abandoned state , and
with material so defective , that the yield
scarcely covered tbo expenio of working ,
Ho thought of repairing Joan-Bart
by ronovntlntz the machinery ,
enlarging the shaft and sinking [ It still
deeper , and then keep Gaston-Marlo only
lor drainage. The shovel would bring
them gold , ho said. The Idea wts a cor
rect ono. . Only tbo million was gene and
the industrial crisis had broken out at
the very moment when everything was
going right. A poor financier and good-
natured with his workmen , ho had al
lowed himself to bo plundered over since
the death of his wlfo , leaving the man-
ngomont to his daughters , the older of
whom spoke of going on the stage , whllo
the younger had already sent tire laiid-
icapos to the salon , which had been re
fused. Both , however , were good llttlo
women , smiling oven in the midst of
.heir misfortune. At homo the threat-
jned poverty had caused them to econo-
"You aeo , Loon , " ho resumed , his
rolco faltering , "yon should have sold
rhon I did. Now everything is dcclln-
ng ; yon will bo ruined. If you had in-
rusted your money to mo just ooo what
'oa would have made at Yandamo in
inr mine. "
Mr. Gregory slowly finished his choco-
ato. Then ho replied , decidedly :
"Never ! You know very well thotl
lo not wish to speculate. I live tran-
nllly , it would bo foolish for mo to
rorry my head with the cares of busi
es , And , with reference to Montson ,
t can continue to decline ; wo will still
ot enough from it. It is not necessary
o bo so grasping. Now listen to mo : it

ay , for Montson will go up , the grand-
hlldren of Cecil will still get their broad

Doneulln listened with an uneasy
Then , " sold he , "If I ask you to put
hundred thousand francs in my busl-
oss , you would refuse ? "
But , seeing tbo disturbed faces ot the
Iregorys , he regretted having spoken so
utckly ; ho should have put off his sug-
cstlon of borrowing until later , resorv-
ig it fora desperate case.
"Ohl I did not mean that , It was a
> ko. My Godl perhaps yon are right.
Coney which you properly gain from
thors is what makes you prosper. " ,
Then ho spoke of other things. Cecil
gain talked over her cousins , and of the
isles that engrossed their attention , but
hlch so displeased her , Mrs. Gregory
romlsod to take ber daughter to see
loao llttlo darlings , the first pleasant
ly. Meanwhile , Mr. Gregooy , with
reoconplod air , took no part in the con- , .
jreatlon. Suddenly bo said in a loud ' j
'If I were in your place , I would cease
ils stubbornness. 1 would negotiate
1th Monston. They will do well again
id yon will received your money. "
Ho alluded to the old feud wblch ex-
ted between the company of Monston
id that of Yandamo. In spite of the
nail importance of the latter , her pow-
fal neighbor traa enraged to see on-
osed within her vast territory , that
[ uaro league , which did not belong to

Mr. Gregory did not defend the diroc-

The royal Trakehnen stud Is located litho
the extreme eastern portion of Prinsla
close to the Russian frontier. The ala
tlon of Trakohncn , on tbo railroad fro a
Berlin to St. Petersburg , is built sololj
for the use of the brooding establishment ,
and consists merely of n station house
and necessary arrangements for the ship
ment of the horses.
The breeding farms , twelve in nnnv
bor , contain about 10,000 acres of culti
vable land , besides some timber land. In
1878 the stud contained IG stallions , 300
brood marcs and 1321 bones , of which
number 250 were work borsos.
The horses are taken to the pasture in
the morning , returned to the stables at
noon , when they are watered and fed ,
and at 2 o'clock they are again taken to
the pasture , whore they remain till sun
down. They never sleep outdoors for
hygienic reasons as well as for fear of
horse thieves , the proximity of tbo fron
tier offering special facilities for this
The oats given to the colts are always
mixed with chopped carrots. They are
fed oats as Boon as they are thrco weeks
old , nnd eat more or loss oats at all ton-
tone over after. On the 1st of September
they are wcauod.
In July a public sale takes place on the
stud farms , comprising stallions and
mares and about a hundred four-year-
olds , not chosen from the best. The
price at these sales varies from $250 to
§ 300. From the other four-yoar-olds
the best are chosen and kept ns stallions.
Forty horses go the stables of the em
peror. The best mares are kept to take
the place of those sold ,
The brooding fee varies , according to
the stallion and the blood of the mare ,
From $45 to $5.
English blood virtually reigns oxclu-
lively at Trakehnon and it has boon some
pours since tbo stud had two Arabian and
three Aoglo-Norman stallions. Tbo later -
: or bavo not done well and Imvn boon
iomplotelo abandoned , and they do not
ivant any moro Arab'ans ' because their
offspring lack size. They have four Arab
narcs which prodnco very flno colts. Of
ho sixteen stallions , six are thorough-
rods from England the other ton of half
