Scores of Young actresses read the graphic accounts of my Ebster a Btu a a Ess How Chamois bags of Gold were show ered at her feet As she Sang and danced to audiences of rough millionaire miners on the rude stage in the cold country. They devoured accounts of her Ilici Presque life and illustrated sunday specials pictured her wonderful i g teams the fastest in the Klondyke and Ber sleds Laden with costly furs. One morning before these stories were beginning to find themselves in editorial waste baskets dubbed matter a a weary eyed woman Stepi Ted from a Han Kom before the St. Menu Hospital and disappeared behind the forbidding Black doors. The drowsy maid within was Bidden to deliver a slip of cardboard bearing the simple inscription Quot Flo Webster to or. J. Wilbur Baltch. Baltch was a Young visiting Surg on. Who spent most of his time at the Hospital and w Hose patients were chiefly imaginary. The woman waited impatiently in the Stuffy office striding Back and Forth across the room stopping occasionally before the doleful picture of a wet Ping Saint or the grim features of a painted Martyr. For All the shimmer of Silks the jingling f chains and chatelaine and the Parl in of diamonds she was not an imposing figure. The Beauty she had once undoubtedly possessed had succumbed to powder and paint Viero Deand Champagne but there was an expression in her face of indomitable courage and strength and a hint of womanly possibilities in her wide eyes. She thought of her heralded Success and smiled bitterly. The old Happy Days before her adventurous journey were constantly before her.

Flower Beer was a slip of a girl in those Days the Toast of the men about town and the idol of Hie gallery boys. She a danced herself into the hearts of theafers goers the evening of her first App Arance. Flattery and attention had not turned her pretty head however probably because her susceptible girls heart had immediately gone out to haul Home Jack Baltch e Man of whom men spoke contemptuously and women proportionately admired. He had said to her one morning Long go with a look which had caused her to draw a Long Ilreath a if i had the Price fio.

Baltch a they both started As a Small Black figure appeared in the doorway and As Flo turned she stood face to face with a remarkably Beautiful girl in the garb of a nun.

The maid shuffled Avay. And Polo sat dreamily at rest listening half unconsciously to the murmur of voices which floated through the open door of the dispensary. A what soft harmonious voices those Sisters have a she thought. Suddenly she sat up straight. A Many a voice was answering the gentle tones of the woman. A nah.

She began to chatter gayly and though out of respect to her m. Lecerf muffled i his mighty a a. Her own laughter rang out unrestrained. And this merry mood was not dampened by her reception for Madam in Hor Relief to find that the teacher was not a Man. Was gracious to glee ulness and As the Long line of clumsily shod Days faded from her future she joyously resolved to break in on the setting she was saving and give the new teacher Fried eggs for supper. I the school having thus opened with i eclat run smoothly through the first j four weeks. Miss Margaret grew right Ozeil and Rosy cheeked from much walk ving among the Pines and faithful doing of her daily Mead. Smiles came easily to her lips and songs lingered there. She Sang often. Too often it would seem after that sunday when she came in from a stroll and found a handsome lad smoking cigarettes on the front gallery for Marie a Benefit. Marie Intro diced him shyly As m. Phillipe and the i boy greeted her w till Fine French Grace throwing away his cigarette and proffering his . Margaret sat Low n to Chat a Little thinking to please Marie.

She w As so anxious to be polite to Marie a Friend and show him that she appreciated his Courtesy. Which was All very Well. But when she went Back to her room. M. Phillipe talked to Marie about Here i which was All very bad. Stupid. Voila to talk to one s sweetheart about another woman. And then which was still More stupid he brought the teachers mail one Day when it was not sunday j he and the teacher sat Down on the Gal Lery to Chat while he waited for Monsieur to come in and Marie came up the Branch with the weeks Wash in a tub on her head and found them there. The teacher looked fresh Dainty she wet toil stained. A Sucre the next Day Marie was sullen at school and All Marie a Little Brothers taking their tone from Marie were sullen also. The teacher tried patience in vain. She resorted to discipline and All Marie a cousins cd est a dire the whole school joined in the insurrection. The big girls Rose As one Man rivalries among themselves mail oui but no outsider should poach up on their preserves teacher or no teacher. At Home they spoke openly of leaving school and Little Brothers and Sisters True to the Lead told tales of pedagogic injustice harrowing to hear.

The italian government is greatly concerned Over the Clandestine exportation of statuary and antiquities to England and the United states. Although there is a Law inflicting heavy penalties on those who attempt to dispose of antiquities in foreign countries the Trade in there articles Coli hues brisk. Only a. Few Days ago the Cable signalled the arrival of a Large Quantity of statuary in new York and Boston which is to tie set up in the Garden of a fashionable <3ame in Newport. It has come to the knowledge of the authorities that a Large association of thieves is robbing Many of the museums and monuments of their prize sculptures. Recently Baron Kanzler Secretary of a the Arch geological commission in Rome had to denounce to the roman police the continuous thefts of historical articles from the catacombs. Three persons were arrested the other Day while coming from the catacombs of St. Ippolito to which they had forced an Entrance. New Monk for .

Ugly masks and goggles Are now Likely to be cast aside for a new mask which is Strong and transparent and modifies in no Way the appearance of fair complexions. It is constructed of transparent both with the usual spectacle glasses and thus obviates the danger of fire so much feared with inflammable celluloid masks. I a to Date soling or.

These men. Who were to he forced into fight against their will rebelled and Large numbers of them made their escape a Over the line into Canada. At that time.

Coming out of a stretch of Woodland we hulled across a Grassy Plain where were piled As High a a houses All Lite articles in the soldiers menu.

Wearers of the Blue and the Gray alike were Brave in daring the fire of Tho enemy to save or Succour wounded comrades. One would hardly expect however to find the instances numerous of confederates who risked their lives for a negro but the Osceola Democrat cites one moving instance. George Macdonald one of the few coloured Confederate veterans in his stale was wounded at Wilt ones Creek where a Minie Ball slowed through his hip and a Buckshot struck him in the face. He Lay groaning upon the ground when he was found by Owen snuffer lieutenant of his company. For snuffer the negro had All the affection a pet slave lavished upon his master and the master knew it. The White Man Bent Down examined the blah Many a wounds and Stancher the How of blood from them. The wounded Man As soon As he could speak begged for water. The lieutenants canteen was enmity but Midway a tween the firing lines was a Well. To reach it was to become the target of sharpshooters but the groans of his Black Friend moved the lieutenant deeply and he determined to take chances. He pushed Forward under fire until the Well was reached. And then he discovered that the bucket had been take away and the Windlass removed. The Well was an old fashioned walled one of great depth. After an instant a thought Lieut. Snuffer pulled off his Long cavalry boots and taking one in his Teeth he made a slow and laborious decent of the Wall. When water was reached and the Boot filled he began climbing up the same Way he had gone Down straddling the Well and clutching with hands and feet at Tho Rocky Walls. Reaching the surface he picked up Tho other Boot and crawled and wriggled Back to the Confederate lines. He gave the negro As much we Ater a he cared to drink and filling his canteen poured the rest of it Over his burning wounds. Have n Good memory.
