THE STORY OF MANON LESCAUT.
Remarried After Forty Yours Cupltl
As an Evangelist Bntnsoii ; Woil-
iloil nnd Widowed In Ono
Gath thus tells the story of Nation Les-
caut for the renders of the Cincinnati En
quirer : Far bnclc In the eifihiconth century
a priest ot the Homan churuh , the Abbu Provost
vest , who wandered from his brethren in the
monastic lifo to consort with Cipriani , wrote
u elussical story , which is slid b-jlnir printed ,
and which owes its longevity to its fidelity to
hutnnn nnturo. IIo U supposed to liavo taken
tlio story Irom nn iitclclout in his own career ,
as Qoutho took the story of "Munjuorlto nnd
Fiiust" from im nmonr ot nis own nilildlo
life. The story of "Manon Lcscaul" by this
priest relates how a young mau Intended for
the church was traveling from homo to his
monastic school when ho saw a beautiful
girl In the yard of an Inn in care of her fam
ily servant , she was bound to another school.
Instantly , from a wantom disposition , she
began to ole the young man and make signs
to him. His nature foil down in an Instant ,
and ho sought nor acquaintance , anil within
the hour these two , whoso paths nod thus ac
cidentally crossed , were traveling to-
xvard Paris in a carriage , am ) before
thev reached tnat city their folly was coin-
plotrd. Abandoning his family , the young
man takes up his abode with the girl ,
having mutually seduced oaoh other , and
they come to tlio privations of such pnoplc ,
whereupon the woman discovers her innnto
want ot flJolity and brcaKs the young man's
heart. She leaves him , nnd his parents Had
him ; ho returns to thostudy of divinity , and
perseveres in that line until his plotv , tinged
with the wound in his heart , has in idu him n
most precocious neophyte , whoso preaching
is the wonder of the monks. IIo stands In the
pulpit upon the eve of taking holy ardors to
preach hls.trlnl sermon ; attracted to the
church In * the announcement of his elo
quence , Manon Loscaut comes. As ho looks
doivi upon her while prcnchmg the wound
in Ids heart bleeds anew ; his sermon is dissi
pated. IIo loaves the sacred desk to upbraid
the woman who has HO deceived him and
whom ho so tenderly loved. In hnr turn ,
affected bv her first passion and by pity ,
she leads him off afresh , and again they
fall into privation , and she again renew ) her
predatory schemes to niaka money out of old
anil rich men , and ouo of these who has In.
fluouco In the government has her arrested
for attempting to rob him , and she Is thrust
iuto prison. Tlioro her behavior was not uu-
like that of Mrs. Hamilton , so called , at At-
lantio Ci'y but yesterday. When her lover
visits her In person she throws herself into
hit arms nnd sobs from tbo bottom of her
hoarti "Ob , get mo out of hero I If you
love me , do not leave raol" Ho hears the
cry in his deepest emotions , and attempts to
got her out of the prison , ana holng Inter
rupted by a guard ho draws his ready sword ,
which the young men of the period wore at
their elded , runs the guard through , and befalls
falls dead. Erratic love and its fervor have
inado a murderer ot the Chevalier Gripux ,
His family , however , luivo influence enough
to spare him a prosecution by paving money
to the surviving family of the slain person ,
but the girl Manon , who has caused all this
Buffering and expense oy tier wantonness , is
txHidouiutxl to bo sent to Louisiana among
the criminal prostitutes , there to bo
sold af > a wife to nay person whom
her charms will attract and who will
buy hor. The young ; mau , still ym-
patbizhic ; with his mistress and believing hornet
not to bu sinful ut heart , follows the train of
prisoners Irom town to town , and oven fol
lows her to Louisiana , where the nephew of
the governor , smitten with her attractions ,
wishes to possess her , and bids for her us for
somu quadroon slave Terrified at tuo pros
pect of Decomintr the wife of such a brute ,
the poor girl flies to the swamps and tiles in
the arm * of her iirst lover , who continues
faithful to tbo last. He , with a broken heart ,
turns from the corpse , to full into the nrms of
his friends for friendship Homntttues accom
panies men who do those reckless thluirs.
The friend has followed from Franco to
Louisiana to redeem his companion from en
vironment , and finds that the denouement of
the tntrlguo has become complete by the
female's death. Ho leads his wretched friend
back to the city and the ship , and takes him
to Franco to resume his place us a clerical
and friend of sinners.
Such is tlio story ot Manou Loscaut the
belief that there arc women who full from
virtue without criminal intention , continuing
to the present time , has kent this little story
alive , so that It has become a nuhjcct ot
opera and painting , whllo all the other writ
ings , hundreds in number , of the Abbo
Provost have fallen Into inocuous desuetude ,
as an erring president once phrased it.
John Keel , who lives on the cdgo of Ten
nessee , not far from Louisville , courted
pretty Lucy Walker , a neighbor's daughter ,
and married her m IS ID. The couple lived
togotncr for thirty years and raised a family
of four children. All the children married
and moved away. The old couple became
lonely , and they got a young lady named
.lane Hunter to come unit live with them.
Miss Hunter was about twenty , bright and
attractive. It was soon evident that Mr.
Walker was much attached to voung Miss
Hunter. His wife grew jealous nnd accused
111 in of falling in love with the girl. Ho
frankly admitted It and said that hn would
marry her if ho aid not have a wlfo"
already. Mrs. Walker loft her husband nnd
soon afterward obtained a divorce. The old
man and the young woman were then mar
ried and catna over the line into Kentucky
to live. They bought a farm about three
miles from hero and lived together appar
ently happy for twelve years. At the end of
that time they dUaercod and separated , the
second Mrs. Keel , like the first , obtaining a
divorce. The old man went'back to Tennes
see whore the wife of his youth bad ro-
muhied faithful and alono. UU heart turned
again toward her \yuen they met. and he
proposed that they 'ho remarried. She
agreed. The other day the wedding oo-
cuneil , and they have returned to the farm
upon which they began life when they wore
first married , forty yours ago.
The death-bed marriage of John Lawton ,
past uatlonnl supromp ranger of the for
esters. has invested the closing KOOHO of his
lifo with a touch ot romance , says a Provi
dence , R. I. , dlspatoh. Lawton was a man
of considerable inoans , , and hau a big aud
generous heart. Touched with the dovotiou
of Clara Louisa Elln6ra Fogg , his house
keeper , ho offered her his hand and heart aa
lie lay dying , with bu an hour of lifo to live.
The person to whom ho offered to devote the
remainder of hU uxUfcnco ( about sixty -ulno
minutes ) did not asU foe delay nor toy with
the offer. Shu was , uo coy maiden , but a
matron ot thlrty-avo , who hud passed
through n period of miserable matrimony
years ago. Shu had nursed him with ten
der Bollcltudo and with unselfish devotion ,
and had refused to bo relieved of duties
trying enough to prostrate the most robust
woman. Ha appeared to bo BO desirous
of being accuratnly informed as to

A trial involving circumstances of on ex
ceptionally romantic character will come be
fore the Tribunal of Uugusa. About twenty
yenra ngo a peasant of the nctzhborhood of
Uigusa , being no longer able to support his
wife , emigrated to the United States , leaving
his better half in charge of the vlllago
priest. From the first luck smiled on him ,
and he was able to send tlio priest fifty florins
a month for his wife. As his position im
proved he increased the amount of his
monthly remittances , but the rascally rovor-
oudo only handed live florins a month to the
woman. This wont on for fifteen years ,
whou this worthy clerical gentleman forged
n certificate of the husband's death , and
placed it in the hands of bin
wife , whoso death he likcwNo certi
fied in u forgotl document and sent it
to the husband in America. "Shortly
