But a a or Man or woman Bah 1 Paris As a no al thing let Monsieur Dupont paint Whie and the emperor had never visited studio yet. It was an Odd place that an wine.

I Nroy fing this a la Asmodeus to take a up oep.y�u might have seen one Bright May 0 10n.llnr Monsieur pan Dupont standing Dei i it tingly before a Pio Turfle tho sort of Pic 1 nne Nae might a pub expected of a French nov �1-Taree and Twenty airy Grove Fulard Oman Tio. A Lover at the feet of his beloved Asrun by i i st Jie Nook beside a Fountain a ter ail0a 1 a Duenna asleep in 1116 Wees on a Garden Boneh a picture destined to be called 1 tho youth was handsome and the Duenna Brown and corpulent the Maiden As yet but ghost like sketch. There was the difficulty Paul could find no Model for his Beauty. True there were Plonty to be hired for to Many sous an hour but he wanted an innocent face and much staring at in artists studios had banished tie Blush from if Ost of tho faces Young and pretty enough for his purpose. _ Monsieur Paul and always found it impossible not to imitate the expression of his models and it would not do for the heroine of a la declaration to look brain. At last he Flung Down his brushes kicked Over a Stool put on his hat with its pendent tassels and his velvet pal tot and went Down stairs and out into the Rue de it was a quiet Street enough. The. Houses looked half asleep. The Only sound was the Distant rumbling of a vehicles in bomb wide thoroughfare and the hideous yells of a fish woman with a Basket on her head crying her Stock for Sale. Monsieur Paul , with his hands deep in the packets of his pal tot and looking in the air forgot to watch his feet. They struck suddenly against something and somebody uttered a shriek and cried a a he has destroyed them a looking Down Monsieur Paul saw a. Girl and an overturned Basket of violets. A Hud run against a Flower girl and thrown Down her merchandise unaware. An englishman would have uttered naughty words and asked her Why she keep but of the Way. You who read this can Tell me bist what an american would have done. The Frenchman stooped Down and commenced to pick up tho blossoms with a Little a Pardon at that the head wbb lifted and under a Olden fleece of hair Paul Dupont saw the race to wanted. innocent face a Beautiful face the face of a perfect blonde. Perhaps she was seventeen but certainly no older. Earliest girlhood lingered yet in her Blue eyes. Paul forgot the Flowers. A will you set for me a ii said abruptly. Then remembering that she might not understand him to went on a i am an artist. I desire to find a mod of for a figure i Ain painting. If you will oblige me i will pay you Well a the girl Shook her head slowly hesitated and then said in a Low voice in the English language a i do not understand. I am an american Paul collected his thoughts. He had a smattering of English and he said a i shall speak to you in la a Glaise. You comprehend a a yes a said the girl simply and she listened As he spoke and explained in broken English musical and pretty enough what to meant and wanted. She understood and mused a moment when she looked up into his eyes and the glance said a can i Trust you a he answered the look for there was no words a i shall be Good to you. There is no need to fear and his kind Young eyes looked frankly into hers and she Rose and followed Quot him with her violets on her Arm up those Long Quot Dingy pairs to the atelier with its North tight and its heterogeneous belongings where thronged on the dais Sho looked lovelier than Ever Asho taught her How to turn her head and place herself and painted her Shadiwy outline on Slih Canvas. That first sitting was not the last. She came again and again. At length Monsieur Paul discovered Why she was so glad to earn the Coin to gave her. He Mother a dying slowly of consumption. She was an american. A year before she had come to Paris led by tho Hope of recovering Otue property which had belonged to her dead father who was a native of France. That Hope was futile and by the time they knew it to be so the Mother had fallen ill Quot and now their Money was All gone and they could not return to their native land is she was dying. A so what could i do a said the girl i could not see her starve. Though my father was a Frenchman i do not understand the language f need do nothing but offer thebe Flowers and i have earned bread and a Little wine and soup for my Mother. When she is gone i shall care no longer but lie Down and die a it is sad for you a said tote Voung Frenchman a but tho Young and Beautiful should live not die should live and love 1 he thought although he did not say so. Monsieur Paul Dupont was poor himself but after this Many Dainty and Many a bottle of wine found its Way to the unknown woman dying in a foreign land. From that Day she did not suffer from want. A and that picture was Long painting. It seemed As though the Golden hair and Blue eyes would never be done. Paul Dupont was in no haste whatever for let tie secret creep out this friendless american girl Selling her Flowers in the streets of Paris Happy to earn the. Francs he gave her for the copying of that Sweet face had won the Young artists heart. He hardly knew it himself until one Day she entered his. Room trembling and weeping and sobbed Forth a my Mother is dead Thon the truth flashed upon him and he Bent Over Hor and took her hand and said in French but thou Hast a Friend yet left beloved that Day a looked upon the dead face of tho Flower girls Mother and did what a son might have done. The foreign lady lays in a quiet grave with a Little Cross above Hor head and there were two mourners her daughter and Paul Dupont. It was beside that grave he said to her Tudor words of comforts Here also he whispered a thou East sell Flowers no longer thou Dost not hate me. Let Iny heart shelter thee he my wife and in this Brief time she had Learned to understand his native Tongue. Lonely and Loving him As he did her there was but one answer to be Given. A that night an old priest married them and Paul took his wife Home to his atelier. A Sweet task it seemed to dry her tears to Comfort her very Sweet to Taoh her. His native Tongue. His English and Hor French were on a Par but lovers can understand each other without language of any kind. The prettiest pair i Ever Gaw were deaf and dumb and held Eon verse with their eyes. For a few Days that atelier was a paradiso and then sadness and misfortune poured in upon their bridal path. It was then in the dead hour of the night. They started wide awake together with a noise and Glare about them. The building was on fire. People were screaming Wood tracking flames Licking up door posts and window frames with its Rod Tongue. Fifteen minutes More would have to pen the end of them. As it was Paul had barely time to wrap his Darling in a cover lid and Fly Down the blazing stairs with Quot her for life she was not Hurt but he was sided about the face and hands and badly Burnt id his arms. To Ift hardly Khew it until the next Day when the debris of the furniture was Rebo Oil from the ruins and they had found another lodging. Then the pain became More that he did no to mind Whilo she pitied and nursed him but is Days passed on and he grew rather worse and better tho fear that he might not be Able to paint before their purse which the wife had about her web empty grow stronger. The surgeon looked it grave Over the Burn and would give no opinion Estelle that was the name Paul had Given her and she accepted because her in fish name Ruth was a mysterious impossibility to his French Tongue did All she could. She spent the sous frugally with an old Man who sold cheap articles of food on one Side of his shop Obilo on the other were stored old books waste paper and rags. Paul know him Well. Many of those old books had been found amidst Lii refuse and bought for a few sous. He sympathized with and prescribed for. The artist. All in vain. The Little Money vanished until they were penniless. _ the first Day of a flute wont Paul kissed Hie wife with Many words of love and went out to see the surgeon. He oame Back with a White free and sat Down saying nothing. Estelle trembled. She crept up to him and kissed his forehead. Then he burst into tears and robbed in her bosom. The surgeon had told him his Arm must come off or to must die. A terrible Fate for an artist and a Young Man of Twenty Throe. A i must die a he said a there is no Choice _ a i will work for you a she sobbed a Only live for me a thy Little hands Are both not so much As one of mine a said Paul. A we cannot live but we can die together _ she spoke her native language and he his in their excitement. Then they were silent. She knew what he meant. Forgive him Reader he was French and a Frenchman a first idea in trouble is charcoal. That was it charcoal and an air tight room. She had no wish to die but her husband was her world and she would not exist without him. After a while sorrowful and ii dry in that gloomy room she was quite of his Way of thinking. She Only said a a wait until to night a he answered a you will Chere Amis. So they waited and at dusk began their preparations. They made their windows and their Chimney air tight and sat a fur mice in the Middle of the room. Thon Paul said a a i will bring Yon the charcoal. Friend the shopkeeper will wait some time for his Money but no matter he will not begin do it. He took a Basket and went out through the darkness to the Little shop to the in quiries of its owner he replied that a he was better would soon be Well As he said this his Eye rested on the charcoal and he smiled. The grower was unconscious. He Hont Over the Black fuel measuring it your Basket has a Holo in it a he said a the Coal will escape and soil Madame a neat floor wait i will repair it searching among the rubbish he found a piece of crumpled parch ment and Laid it in the Basket.

This was the property which had brought m s. Noir to Paris the will which had been supposed to be in existence but which had been vainly searched for for the very Good reason that Sumery grasping servants had unwittingly sold it with the other papers and Hooks and household refuse to dealers in push articles for a few sous. The grasping servants would not read. Neither could the polite shopkeeper of the Rue Deand but Tor that charcoal it is probable the document would have remained lost forever.

This is the second it is probable that al this Pond the ground request of this kind he Lias made since his was broken up Only by the Spade. Alt r arrival. Chaplain Iier foot was sent to his Ward when the farms were enlarged More cell. Iio greeted tho chaplain with warmth expeditious moans Wero discovered. Some of a it it is to you and this Book Holdim the by the Koman nodes of plow Ingaro still in Uso. Ble in his hand 1 must look Quot he said a a for i hey always slowed with oxen a single Consolation the chaplain talked to pair or sometimes three abreast yoked by him of his spiritual condition read to him the neck and horns. Passages from tho Bible and prayed with him. A he farm Housos Weie at first Little huts after the chaplain loft Davis appeared to be but they were soon enlarged to buit the in in much hotter spirits than lie has been for creasing possessions of tho owners. We some time past rend at a later period of Largo store houses and Gre Nenos cellars for wine and Oil barns together with separate buildings for the care and rearing of every species of Dom Ostio animals. A the kinds of Grain in common cultivation wore the Sauie As those known in Europe with the exception of Maize or Indian Corn which was first found in Fth is country a tire incent Mode of converting Grain into meal was by pounding it with an instrument something like the Pestal and mortar. Mueh care and attention was paid by the romans to tho roaring of cattle. Sheep were secured under cover during the Winter notwithstanding the mildness of the italian climate. Shearing time was a season of gon eral festivity. Goats were made As profitable to tho farm or As sheep. Their hair was clipped every year and Woven into a kind of course stuff and their milk was the chief Supply of the Dairy. The roman Farmers wore very superstitious. They refrained from All labor on the filth Day of the new Moon on the seventh and tenth Thoy planted vines and harnessed Young oxen to tho Yoke on the ninth they commenced a journey tho Skeleton of an asses head was Hung up to the Boundry of the farm to enrich the soil and drive away the effects of blight. The same Ligure carved in brass and crowned with vines was affixed As an ornament to their couches. La the Remote Ages the gardens of the romans contained Only a few of tho most common pot herbs and Orchard Trees. Tho More delicious fruits and More Beautiful Flowers were Insp diced at a much later period from Persia and other parts of Asia. The style of ornamental gardening was heavy and formal producing a gloomy Shade rather than displaying Beautiful so Emory. It was the fashion to fill the gardens with dark walks shaded with evergreens loaded with statues and bounded by High clipped Hedges. It is supposed that the romans knowledge of tia amp Fult Rution of the grape Aud of the Art of making wine from Greece. Thoy took great care of their vineyards and Laboured in cultivating the plants with much Art and Industry. The Modo of gathering and pressing the grape was the some that is now practice. The Vintage was a time of festival and tho rustics made merry with the performance of a rude kind of comedy and pouring out libations of new wine to Jur Pitfor and Venus. The wine appears to Havo differed Fri in that of modern times it was kept in jars formed like urns Samo of which 1110 said to have Boon so Large a to have Mado when filled a Load for a Yoke of oxen. They were commonly ranged in cellars but were sometimes buried in to Earth or even bedded cd solid masonry. The wine was usually kept to a great ago. It was held in less Laver than the wine of Greece and was much cheaper. Reading the Bidle. Iio reads the Biblo morning and evening. Recently i am told he protract these readings much More Thau at the commencement of his imprisonment lie co Ulysses Liis belief in the Bible and professes to have made it tho ruling guide of his life. It is evident Tomt Lio dues not Frinc a boing Quot Cinfio had exclusively to Reading the scriptures for lie sometimes clamors for a different style of literature i hut his request in this regard thus far has not been complied with. This refusal to extend his Reading privileges and not permitting him to write to his wife or Seo letters from her have formed tho Burden of jigs complaints. His eve sign growing More defective. If permission was Given him to have All the books lie wished he could not read much himself and from tho Comfort derived from them would have to rely mainly of others Reading to him. One ovo is now almost totally Blind and tho other gives indication of rapidly becoming so. Iio has complained lately of seeing objects double. He still wears his goggles during tho Day time.

At last out of patience he agreed to his terms. In two or three Days the picture was ready. Tho Nobleman surprised at such expedition immediately called to examine it and found the Spaey Pui 11 ted al 1 Over red. A zounds 1�?T said the purchaser a what have.

The misers confusion would Only to equalled by tho haste with which he paid the Bill. The biter was bitten. I of a a what a fool Quot said. Patty Prim when she heard of the capture of Jeff. Davis of course tho men would All run after him if he was dressed As a woman and he was Ente to be caught a life in prison is necessarily monotonous. With few it has Over Beon More so than with Davis. He rises pretty Early usually at five of clock in the morning. He takes a Bath the first thing using Salt water at first and winding up with fresh water. His bathing facilities Are limited Owonsia Tinglof a common Washtub half filled with Salt water a Wash Basin of fresh water coarse towels and soap. An army Blanket he converts into a temporary screen and bathos behind this. Iio is not very particular about his toilet the Fash Iun of combing his hair and All that but is exact upon the subject of cleanliness of his underclothing sheets towels amp a. Bath and toilet completed he reads Liis Bible and at half past eight has his breakfast. This is served him from or. Cravens table. The st nth Niento in some of the papers that a daughter of or.
