Elizabeth M. Gilmer in New Orleans
Picayune : 'I have just been looking
upon the face of Mara , doud. When
those wo love pass into the silence of
death , no matter how cruelly fate has
dealt by them , wo do not say that wo
nro glad. Yet when I stood above the
cotllnod form of mv dead friend she to
whom my heart clave as David's did
Jonathan when I saw the smile upon
her still face , if I might have laid my
warm lips upon her cold mouth and
breathed Into her once more the breath
of life , if I might have laid my heart
against her heart nnd sent the subtilo
olixor of the blood coursing again
through her stilt veins , if it had been
vouchsafed mo to work some such mira
cle as this , I would have done it.
As I passed through the garden to
the house where she lay dead I plucked
a sprig of rue and rosemary and laid
thorn hidden under all the wealth of
hothouse llowors upon her heart.
"Dear , " I said so quietly , that none
might hoar it save the dead , "doarovon
in the grave thou must remember , "
All day long she lay upon her bier
with that still , uold smile like fro/.on
bUiiBhino on her faceand the people she
had known in lifo came in by one , nnd
twos to look upon her for the last timo.
"How beautiful she was , " they fciiid ,
"anil how sad for ono to die so young.
She had everything In lifo. " * * *
And they passed chattering out into the
busy street where the sun shone and
the world rushed on as if there was no
Mara lying dead behind drawn blinds.
Hut at last the night foil and I prayed
for them to leave mo alone with the
dead. In all the world only I , who had
laid the sprig and rosemary amonir the
costly funeral trappings , know the
secret of that still heart , and it scorned
to motlmt oven in eternity she niunt
know that for the last tune I watched
bc-sido her , and must bo glad.
I tool : in mine the lifeless hand , whoso
coldness did not appall mo , and laid my
cheek ngainst it. The room was very
still. I coulu hear the muflled ticking
of u clock somewhere in tbo distance ,
the night air cama in through the half
opened window , heavy with the per
fume from the garden , the moonlight
touched and glorllled the still , sweet
binllo on the dead faco. * * * W hat
was it they bad said of her ? That she
was very beautiful , nnd it was bad for
Buch as bho to dlo. * * * They
meant that she was rich ; that bho
had costly gowns and splendid
horbos and a box at tbo opera ; that her
husband gave her Una raiment and
dainty food , nnd so they brought their
'over big hottioubo rosen to lay upon her
bier and 6 > id thai it was sad ; but I , who
brought her nothing but rue and rose
mary , I know that no tours should full
upon the happy dead.
Tbo hand I held in mine was
strangely heavy , and the moon striking
, upon it showed u gleaming bund upon
her linger , a massive golduii'futtor tnut
wtis her wedding ring. I shrank as 1
saw U , as if touio QUO had struck mo.

All at once the wind blew cold and
sharp , but the hand was half shut as if ,
oven in death , Mara remembered to
guard that heavy band and keep it from
slipping from her slender hold.
Perhaps none of us are quite free
from superstition , and even our best beloved -
loved , when dead , are strange to us. I
turned and looked upon her. I had loved
her so long , and it seemed to mo that I
could read in the quiet smile , and the
fair face that no suffering could make
unlovely , nothing but the mute elo
quence of that guarded ring.
I have often wondered" how Mara
came to tell mo her story. It is such a
common ono , so many women's lives are
like hers it is scarcely worth telling ,
and yet in the deep silence of the night ,
with that dead hand In mine , the only
thing that seemed a living , breathing ,
palpitating reality was the quiet trag
edy on whose end the curtain had just
All her life I had known Mara , but in
the wandering newspaper career 1 had
chosen there were sometimes breaks of
years in our intimacy , when I heard of
her as a school girl or a debutante , or a
society belle , and then I hoard of her
marriage , and from time to time rumors
reached mo"of the magnificence of her
entertainments , and I was vaguely con
scious that she was pursuing- the life of
a fashionable woman in ono of our great
And then fate throw us together
again at a little soaconst village , and
the old friendship renewed itself. I
think I know almost from the very first
that all was not well with Mara. She
was greatly changed , and was oven
moro beautiful than I had remembered
her , but there was that something in
hot * often see the
eyes you may expres
sion in a proud woman's eyes that tolls
plainer than any words tlio story of her
life. It is the history of the agony with
which Bho had seen her idol torn down
and trampled underfoot , doilled forever
in her sight ; it is the memory of .the
broken hopes nnd torn illusions in
which she realizes that her youth , with
nil its divine hope and faith , is gone
from her never moro to bo replaced.
Such a womall may love again , but to
her no man can bo again a god. She
has BOOH the # old with which her own
fancy gilded her idol fall from it , leav
ing it basest clay , and she believes and
hopes and trubis no moro.
I mipposq.I 7'P'l(1 ' Ibis story little by
little in Mara' * eyes in the long bummer
days wo wore pgotbor. I saw her with
her huabaiyl. . I saw that she bent her
will to his slightest law ; that she stayed
her quick bruin to keep pace with his
slow thoughtu that fabo brought her
keen wit to brighten the market reporter
or the tedious game of cards that
sooniod tbaoaly thing ho cared for , and
it angered inoj I told myself that he
was solllshuthiit ho understood nothing
of her quifjk jthrobblng life , of her
thought that W4is like a lightning ihibh ,
electric , burning , consuming. They
were made of such dilloront fiber their
lives could never bo interwoven. * *
Finally tlio bubbnnd was called away ,
and for days and days Mara and I tat
silently on the sands together or talked
in such dibjointed sentences as only
friends may , each saying the thought
that rose to the heart with the certainty
the other would answer oven the un
spoken word. On ono such day as this

"It is like my lifo , " she said ; "all the
white things and the bright thingfa have
gone from mo. "
And then before either of us 'were
aware of it the barriers of convention
ality were down and , she was tolling mo
the story of her lifo.
I know not what words she used.
Sometimes she spoke very rapidly and
again there were long pausesnnd breaks
in her sentences , but I saw. as if she had
painted her portrait , the young girl so
cruelly ignorant of lifo , with all the ij-
lusionsand dreams of a sensitive , imagi
native nature a creature so warm
hearted and generous she clothed the
world in rainbow colors and could not
see beyond the veil her fancy wove ; I
saw her full of faith and hope and trust ,
marrying putting her all on the throw
of one great stake and losing.
Yet ho was not bad. this man. Of his
wealth he gnvo her freely , and of such
love ns ho had , but who is willing to
take base metal in exchange for gold ?
And as for the rest , ho did not under
stand. In1 his narrow brain there was
nocchoofhor boundless thoughts , bis
dull intellect could not flash back the
lightning of her wit , I could under
stand all the miserable disappointments ,
the unending weariness"When I
first realized , " Mara was saying , in u
still , level voice more pathetic than any
bob could have boon , "when _ I realized
that all the companionship of which I
had dreamed could npvor lie , that the
husband by my side in his dull sloop
was moro separated from mo than if the

God had mercifully pitied my agony ,
There wore weeks and weeks in which
I fought it out , prayed it out , wept it

mistakes ? I wns so young and so ig

"It is so sad a thing to bo done with
the joy and light of lifo at twenty , " she
said. I suffered until at last respite

like many another woman , I suppose 1

THE FUTURE RULER OF BRAZIL
Dom Pcdro'H Illness Suggests a Dlts-

A Washington special to the Chicago
Tribune , says : The serious illness of
Emperor Dom Pedro If. at Milan lias
led to some talk of the succession to the
throne in case of his death or abdica
tion. Even before the news of his grave
attack in Italy there had been porsibt-
ont reports of his intention to resign
the crown , but those had given way to
assurances that ho would return to Rio
Janeiro the present month. Perhaps
tlio rumor of his Intended abdication
wns received the moro easily from the
fact that his father , Dom Pedro I. , ab
