An Imnrobnnlo Humor That tlicBody
May Disband.
Thcro is said to bo u possibility of the dlsj
banding of the Edward Creighton Guards.
Humors to this effect have been set afloat by
members of that organization , who
have become dissatisfied with the
laws enacted by the legislature. The par
ticular law that has caused the dissatisfac
tion is that appropriating only $21,900 to the
military bodies. This amount.thoy claim , is
a mere bagatelle , for n state appropriation.
The soldier boys of the Creighton Guards
think they are not appreciate ! by the repre
sentatives of the state , consequently there is
discontentment in the camp.
The guards organized in December , 1SS7.
On the second of that month the body was
mustoicd into tlio service of the state by Inspector
specter General Hurry Hotchkiss , given a
lot of condemned muskets and a
$9 allowance for soldier clothes. Atone
ono time there were fifty-five members
but now there are only about forty or forty-
five. The organization did its first work in
camp at Fort Sheridan at Wahoo last sum
mer. Although at the time the youngest
company in the stnto , the boys received special - ,
cial mention for general appearance , conduct
and excellence of drill. Of the $360 a year
which the armory costs the company the
state donates ? 100. The state also , furnishes
the company with its weapons "nnd blank
cartridges. '
C. J. Smythe , the captain of the company ,
has hold that position since the organization ,
the greater part of which work ho assumed.
Ho was a militiaman of honor nnd standing
in Now York and loaned his experience to
perfect nn excellent body.
As to the probability ot disband lug a num
ber of youiip members of the guards
were seen last night at thoh-
quarters. John Garry stated to a BEE rep
resentative that there had been dissatisfac
tion among the boys at tbo small appropria
tion and that there had been some indefinite
talk of "breaking ranks. "
An Alligator Knocks Out a Stonnlor
The steamer Comet came down from
Crescent City this morning with her
bow stem broken and sovonxl plunks
sprung , says the Palntlca ( Flu. ) Hornld.
It scorns that wliilo coming around a
sharp curve in Dunn's crcok , known as
Danger Point , she struck a huge alliga
tor , which is olaimod by the captain to
have boon about eighteen foot lung.
The crook connects Luke Crescent with
the St. John's river , and is famous lor
its Ilonting islands , which arc composed
of bonnets , water lilies and such other
vegetation as grow in Florida. Tlio
Comet is in the habit of running into
these floating islands without chocking
her spood. The captain noticed that
this particular island was rather
largo , but paid no attention to it , for an
opposition steamer was crowding him
nnd ha could not afford to chock up.
The boat struck the floating island with
terrible force , breaking her bo\vv storu ,
us ubovo stated , and slmttorol the boat
considerably. The passengers were
terribly frightened , and the ladies ran
uhout asking in pitiful tones for holn ,
and it took several minutes for the
crow to quiet those frantic passengers.
An investigation was mado. The crock
was rod with blood and the snortincr in
the water terrific. It turned out that
the supposed island was nothing more
than a huge alligator , whoso back was
covered over with bonnota and water
lilies , resembling an island , obstructing
the hide of the saurian from view. In
stances of this kind happen quito fre
quently on the river , but it IB the lirst
time to our knowledge that a steamer
was over so badly damaged as wa3 the
Comet The Comet will bo repaired
to-day and resume her route to-mor

Private .Tamos K. Bolton. an in'mato
of the confederate soldiers' homo near
Richmond , Va. , tolls a startling story
of the finding la the hold of the old
confederate ram Morrimao the skele
tons of two man. Bolton was a member
of'Johnsoii battery during the war und
was wounded at Brandy station. Ho Is
now almost in a dying condition. He
declares that the discovery of the so
skeletons has preyed upon his mind for
years. According to Bolton's stoiiy ho
was engaged ns a wrecker in 1873. The
person with whom ho was engaged nt
that time was employed in getting the
old copper olT the Merrlmao. While
ongogcd in this work Bolton Bays that
nt one time ho dived into the forecastle
of the confederate gunboat. There ho
found the skeletons of two men ronn-
uclod to the floor. Ho suuposcd that
they were mnmbers of the crow who

seine rule of the navy , and when the
craft was sunk were forgotten by their
comrades and went down to watery
graves. _

against the wn1lthoir pale groou velvet
cushions offering n coaxing invitation
to the young couplcswhoso ] pretty hoada
never know a thought beyond happy
. *
Suddenly a door opens ; there is a
sound of light feet on the carpet , a rip
ple of silk nnd pearls. It is the queen
passing through the royal npartmonts.
Two little pages Joad the way , looking
ns wide awake as the cherubs in Wnt-
tcnu's skios. Tholr hair tied In n club ,
with the velvety light of n touoh of
powder , flaps briskly on tholr shoulders.
The queen walks on , looking a trifle
wonry ; her small foot are Invisible un
der the enormous hoopod skirts she
wonrs , wreathed about with trails of
rosos. The whllo feather in her hair
and the fan she holds in her jeweled
linger quiver a llttlo like the wings of
birds eager to take flight to an un
known homo.
All about her , as usual , is the perpetual -
ual hum of devotion and llattory , which
follows her nt every stop.
"Madame , " says Brissac , nt her el
bow , "you nro moro enchanting than
over to-day. See the roses on your
dross are turning-pale nnd fading ; the
queen of llowcrs is jealous of the queen
of women. "
"Your majesty , by right of birth ,
rules every Frenchman as a subject , "
adds d'Ayon. "l3y right of grace nnd
beauty you rule them as slaves. "
"And the women no loss , " murmurs
the lady in waiting bondlng with in
sinuating readiness to kiss the royal
hand , which hangs on the full panior of
the slcirt.
The sovereign's youthful face lights
up with a bright smile , shaded by some
mysterious nnd inscrutable annoyance ,
while she shrugs her shoulders with n
slightly sullen air.
"Flatterers ! " she says. "It is the
fate of us luckless1 queens never to hoar
the truth. I make no doubt that my
dress is awry , or head dross too low. "
"I would say that your majesty was
never moro charming. " says Brissac ,
"but that I rcmombor how truth com
pels mo to say thp same every time I
have the happiness of seeing you. "
"I should like , to know what pretty
speeches raon cohifivo to make to other
women. " > ixi :
"They find ndno half so pleasing , "
says the lady in waiting"for they never
moot with any wdman so'admired no
your majesty. ' ' *
"Ahl my dean , ifcyou could only know
the whole of the thoughts that some
times como intp tiny mind. I would
gladly let my hpad rest from bearing
the weight of th6jcro\yn. Oh I to be a
shepherdess on | hr brink of a silent
river , by whosq' bank white lambs
should sport declcou with rosy ribbons.
Would not that charming ? Shep
herds playing with their pipes bewitchingly -
ingly would putpnjheir , tondcrcst airs
to sigh nt my feqt. [ Wo will play at it
one day at Trianon. I , will have it so.
But , alas ! it wilir bo no more than a.
brief comedy. Thun I must take up
the part of queen again ; the part I
have to play now , at once , in the draw
ing room , where they are waiting for
mo. "
She laughed , nnd glanced at the two
little pages , who opened a double door ,
into which she vanished with girlish
"Ahl" sighed Brissac , gazing at the
closed doors , "If only she were not the
queen ! "
The two gentlemen both looked some
what blank at the sudden flight of the
Bwool royal bird.
"On my word , gentlemen , " says the
lady laughing at thorn. "You are quito
aghast because the qucon has vanished !
It was not BO yesterday. Wo were alone ;
but d'Ayon told mo of an adventure of
which ho was the here ; I had road It
before in a book by M. Croblllon. However -
over , to do d'Ayon justice , to add to my
enjoyment ho borrowed sorao details
from M. do Mnrlvuux and his witticisms
from M. do Chamfort.
"Cruel creature , " replies d'Ayon ,
"you take an unfair advantage of your
strength. You know full well that at
the mcro sight of you , I lese my head. "
"But how many things you have lost ,
poor man , not to reckon ladles' reputa
tions. But como , do you know that I
have every reason to bo seriously an
gry ? What , you sigh for mo , my lord ,
und yet it scorns to mo that you are
greatly struck by the queen ? "
"And is It not every goutlomnu's first
duty to adore the queen ? "
"Oh ! " exclaims Brissao , "to bo in
love with n queen Is to plno lor the im
possible. It is worshipping a cloud , a
remote nnd inaccessible bolng. Is it
not a great joy to fool at the bottom of
one's heart some secret ho | > e hope
against hopo. In love , happiness con
sists in hoping , not in winning. How
ever , to men like us , to love without
hope is often n delight , nnd almost al
ways a novelty. "
"AlasI" says d'Ayon , " ! love on queen
only a cnioou of grace and boauty.
And I am fast loosing all hopo. "
"So much the better for you , poor
d'Ayon , " the lady puts in. "So long
ago us in the last century , Oronto de
clared that over to hope was shcor de
spair ? Listen to Brissac ; ho has no oml
of good ideas which will comfort you for
all your woes. " And she flies like the
flirt that she is , allowing d'Ayon just
time enough to kiss her hands.
' Your heart is flown away with her ,
iny good fellow , ' ' says Brissao , laying
his hand on his friend's shoulder.
"Now , for how long liavo you boon
dancing attendance on that bewitching
creature ? "
"For . "
nearly n year.
"And your sighs nro as vain IncoiiBo
to her indifference ? "
"And if they were not , my nnswor
would bo the bamo. "
"Woll , well ; do not bo fractious. I
have heard other men's confidences before -
fore yours. All I have to say , my
gallant gentleman , JH only to porsuudo
you to give up cherishing a flnmo
which must ore long consume you with
out any return. There is in this world
but oho woman perhaps who can bo
faithful to ti'uo love , and it is she and
no otner to whom yon are paying
court ? "
"Trim love , do you say ? What , at
court even , where slander is the fuvor-
ito theme , no ono has over breathed u
word of scandal about that whoodlcr of
hearts , who is always ready to encour
age adorers , but will never reward
thorn. What mysterious coquettishness
can it bo that induces her thus to trifle
with the tender passion that her beuuty
inspires ? She smiles on those who
bring Venus' bark to her feet , but she
will not fatep into it. "
"I tell you that she is faithful ; is not
that ample reason for being artful1'
"My good fellow , you talk in riddlos.
I know not what you nro driving at ;
but you must know that I will allow no
man to cast base insinuations 'at a
woman to whom ray services nro de
voted. "
"Bo not bo so susceptible. I only
wish to do you a service and to tell you
a little tale. It will bo time enough
then to owe mo a grudge for either or
oth. The lady of your dreams is a
frouk of nature ; aho is faithful to her
husband. "
"To her husband , who died ton years
ngol My dear Brlssnc , you have n. very
pretty wit ! "
"To her husband , who is allvo , nnd
ton years younger she is her second
husband , whom she worships , and
whom you know ns well us I do. Six
yours ago she was a very pretty llttlo
\vldow.wlth a crowd of suitors. She
was four and twenty , with beautiful
teeth , which eho has still , nnd the
finest eyes In the world , The memories
of her first mnrrlngo were not such as
to tempt her to' lot her little hands bo
bound again in Hymen's fetters. The
shade of the old duuo , to whom she hnd
boon married oa quitting the convent ,
nmply sutllcod to give her nlghtmuros
without any need of taking another
husband to give her more bad dreams.
She was said to bo coy to wlldnoss. All
the finest gentlemen of the court , the
most highly gifted , and the greatest
adepts in the difficult art of fasci
nation , hung about this ropollunt
beauty all in vain. And yet she
was sick at hoart. Her tender spirit re
belled against parental solicitude. * At
this juncture fate sent her the very
thing she wns pining for. whllo she herself -
self hardly know why she should sigh
during the lonely ovoulngs in her joyless -
loss homo. "
"Your tnlo begins like a romance by
Crobilliou Ills. "
"And ends so too. [ At that time it
wns the fashion to adopt children.
There was not n line lady in Franco who
did not regard it as a point of honor to
make some orphan happy ; ho must bo
poor , and if possible Illegitimate. It Is
out of fashion now. " Curly dogs have
como in instead. ] Ono day the young
duchess saw at the guto of her hotel a
girl begging , n young thing of about
16 , as pretty as CJupid , and gazing at
her with inquiring oyos. Of course she
took her in at once and cherished her
with all the fond care which women
who have no children commonly lavish
on tholr Porsiun cats. The young
favorite wns cro long the rule ,
of the household. Ono day the duchess
bolng nlling , sent for the doctor , who
said with a smile : 'Your disorder ,
madame , will in duo tune result in the
arrival of another subject to his
majesty. ' In short , it turns out that
the beggar maid was the younger son
of n noble house who employed this in-
genius device to win the favors of the
lady of his dreams. It is now ilvo years
since the daring page and the duchess
were privately murViod. And that is
why you are losing your pains , my poor
d'Aycn. "
"Well and good , " said d'Ayon with
much philosophy , "and thanks for the
good couiifaol. I do not euro to waste
my ftdvancoa. And nro there not RO
many charming women nl court that tha
only pity is that life Is not long ououeli
to love them all. "
