A THRILLING NARRATIVE OF TUS FRENCH REVOLUTIO neath a chimney-ploce on which tood one or two bronge ornamenta, burned bright fire. The Citoyenne Andrey, 02 aeeing her husband, began to com- plain that she was cold. He threw another log on the fire, shying to himself that no firo would ever warm her;'tt Was her hears, poor creature, hot her body, that was cold. He was kind-hearted, and he took good care of his sick wite, but since they had left Velixy and returned to Parls he had rarely apoken to her, because Anything he suid was sure to lead to. Feorlimination and tears, He had had very powerful reasons for coming back to Paris, ko that he had not only overruled the retmonatrances of Claude, but had felt himself com- polled to exers all his authority, nay, almost to use force to overcome the opposition of his unhappy wife, and he knew that she bitterly resented 1t. Tt seemed to him, however, thatio some past ahade more reasonabii did not see her face flash angrily whenever he came near her; nor did ashe any longer say to him six. or seven times a day: Why did you longer upon your hands ?* Unhappily someone had toid her that Citizen Hanriot, the chief man in their section, had denounced his own mother to the Revovutionary Commit- the-trou- Die of taking care of her. Her thoughts had dwelt upon this horror till the idea that her own peopie might act like Citizen Hanriot bad completely taken possesion of her. But this morning she seemed to him to cower less than usual. Some other Botton, not that connected. with Citi: zon Hantiot, must be uppermost, in her mind; ander huspant ashe noticed her Humble look, her almost beseech- ing expression, felt ure that she had some request to make to him, some- thing no doubt Insane whieh would lead to further trouble, He looked: her with a kind of turiosity. He felt sure that come new project waa ripen- ing in her brain, lo leaneil on the buck of her chair and said softly: Do you want any. thing? Is-it Manette you wish for? She gave a.sudden start. He had touched her instantly to the very quick. In a sharp, trembling voice, yet hardiy louder than a whisper, she exclaimed: Do I want Ma- nette? What should I want that hare-brained, self-willed, foolish girl for? What's the good Of Manette? All she does is to ask me wlien she comes into the room, *Are you bet- ter, aunt? aid much she cares evars body. knows..whom she ts think: ing ort Oh, well you know she 1s quite right to think of him, sald Citizen Andrey somewhat coldiy. She is en- You don't think more of him Without saying anything farther he went towards a tall cabinet, a sort of secretary, in marqueterie and olive wood, Which stood opposite the fire- place: Everything in the dwellln; Showed ase, wealth and luxury, an it may be added, the taste of the mniddie clags-in-days when-every-ar-. ticle of furniture was made with an eye to art. The barbarism of. the. near future was: ruthlessly to sweep asd all such Frey Jegance. whose. RUG re coantiee Sores Sar ay. M Andrey opened the secretary and sat down before its array of tiny drawers. There was one secret drawer ch he pushed open. The , sick Woman maundered on; Oh, yes of course none of you ever thought that Mademolselie Ma- nette could do anything amiss. Of course it was to be expected you would stand. up for a bold-faced, wil- ful thing who never has had but one thought In her silly head. Respect- able girle, want nuturally to be mar. ried, but they don t talk about it as she does. There would haye been fine doings in this house if T had not turned the lover out of it And a good thing, too. He was sure bring us into trouble was Ciauile. Again M, Andrey spoke to her Have the goodness not to try to fu e your conduct to your son. Yor shut our doors in his-face, Because the deiegates of the eec- tion wonld have come here and rested him before iny very eyes. *l am ashamed of Fon for bel such a mother. The deed 1s done; recommend you to say as little as you can about it now. They would Have carried me to Prison me, a poor, sick woman, sith: only God to care for me. - Dhat's alwaya the way, of course. Bring: Providence Into the affair. M.-Andrey was not-a bellever, he Was man like others at.the close of the. eighteenth ceitury. Ha shrngge his eNoulders. At any rate, he said, God does not frighten you. He ls no snne-culott . ( Phe unhappy woman fell back in her chair With a sigh. Her anger-and her animation were dying out. She felt herself vanquished. She did not say another word. MM. Aparey, after feeling In the drawer, took out a pa- per covered. with close writing, which he unfolded before him on the desk. Before beginning to read, however, there pamed through hls mind the thought that le must have been mls taken In supposing that there was any hange In the poor woman, crazed by fear, who was. a int the room with him.

It is not always necessary for houest men who under- the nature ol thelr business, and Grandmalson was honest in his way i though he had become a deep iyed demagogu ot Nantes, and M. Andrey io consequence. often heard of his Jac- obin proteedines. Liberty and trate nity Were words forever in his mouth, amd he berleyed them, while the eam: sonorous phrases were repeated by me he having learned (somewhat to change the proverb) to howl in con cert with the popular ery. on all ovea stone. All the rich lovers of liberty at Nantes had, however, for years done Which was the accepted euphemism for being en gaged inthe slive trade. M. Andrey had had considerable experience, in fiat tratite, for he and Grandmateon ind-tong-had-two. vemsels 01 of Africa, They Deli ved in liberty Seoul teaberusty, bute aS ference. However, they could not but feel that their connection witl: such merchandise might now bring them into trouble, elute so much talk was being made about the rights of man. The names of their two ships had been originally the Jean-Jacques and the Pidele Sujet, but this last had been changed inte- the Mirabeau, Both had wow been two years lying dismantled in the port of Nantes. As they were file t would lave been quite in order for Citizen Andrey to ask Citizen Grandmaison what use he was making of thelr joint capital, but it seemed far more Important to keep the. fact of belng rich unknown in Paris, where pocullur dangers eur rounded every rich man. Therefore the Citizen Andrey felt greatly obliged to Buscalile tor nls protection. That good rascal of n Jacobian had served Tim well and alj for the sake of the bright eyes of Mauette He heard a. tight tap against the wall of the adjoining chamber. and he rose, putting the deed. back in its secret drawer, and closing the seere- tary. The tap had reminded him that he bad another duty:to attend to, anotlier-sorrow to assige, another womau to. console; nil in conse juenes-of the- madness. which scemed Dervade lis dwelling. First he kad to comfort his wile, who dreaded the lows of her head, and then to condole with Manette, who happily only lamented the loss of her love: He did hls best for-voth, smiling ag hie spoke to- them. with. his perpetual smile. Buy he sald to himsel thas neither knew him for what he rea was (orat least wished others to cot sider him), man troty-kimt-hearted, the kind of man bred by the fashion Of the old times, fast passing awa; man who had the true politeness the heart (or at least acted.as if he bad it), a mun who though sharp- ened by long familiarity with business was full of fecting, and who often had thoughts that little accorded with his outwand behavior or his surroundings. Therefore the unnatural conduct of his wife towards her-own son shocked: him extremely, but yet he would not foree her to act differentiy, wiving as his reason that he dreaded lest in some fit of crazy anger provoked by liis Interference she would make some disturbance, which might draw notice, ata time When every house should be if possible quict and unobserved.

This remark was not reasduring to Manette. Any mention of that cele brated prison, still reeking with the blood of murdered priests, awakened to honest hearts a thrill of fear.
