The O4jome of the Recent Agitation on
the Subject of a NeW Ba-,k.
The movement for the establish-
ment )'f a national bank in this city
is likely to assume a different direc-
tion from that indicated in our-last
issue. The discussion of the subject
has :ouv'., our people to the fact
that if a bank of this character is to
be started here it might as well be
done with home capital and man-
aged by our own citizens. These
viewshave been resented so strongly
to the owners, of the Bank of'Fer-
nandina that they have decided to
organize that institution into a na-
tional bank, and have already taken
the necessary preliminary steps to
accomplish that result. Theformal
application has already' been for-
warded to the Comptroller of the
Currency, at Washington,, accompa-
nied 4')y thie usual documents. The
names attached to this application
are the following well-known citizens
of Fernandina: Fred W. BHoyt, H.
E. Dotterer, W. 0. Jeffreys, J. H.
.Prescott, and R. C. Cooley. The
capital stock will be $50,000 and the,

Increased Banking Facilities Needed.
Without "iati.^i,'l information
upon which to base the conclusions:
reached below, we think'we -^are safe
in saying that the time has arriv,.r ,
when the outlook for Fernandina is
sufficiently encouraging -to justify-
the belief that additional banking
capital can be profitably used in this
city. It-will simply be' sufficient to
draw attention to the- following well-
established facts in order that p1-,ai'ti.-s
interested may form theirown con-,
clusions,: .
Fernandina is now, acknowledged-
to be the only deep-water. Atlantic
seaport in- Florida.
Its- easy, approach from the -sea
(two and a half miles only); its
deep, spacious and land-locked -har-
bor; its ample water frontage, its-
light port charges, etc,,-are all-guar-
antees that this port will always
maintain', that 6 1uprem:i1 it sO well,
deserves 'as ihe. first- lultii'-";' ot :on

One-wotild hardly think that the
following beautiful thought came
from the lips of an infidel, and yet
the words were spoken by Robert G.
Ingersoll: Life is a narrow vale be-
tween the cold and barren peaks of
two eternities. We strive in vain to
l6ok beyond the heights. We cry
aloud and the only answer is the-
echo of our wailing cry. From the
voiceless lips of the unreplying dead

night of death hope sees a star and,
listening, love can hear*the rustle of
a wing.

Dr. Philip Wales, army surgeon,
writes that death is caused by abnormal
deposits of lime and fat, but chiefly lime,
in the body. But what causes the ab-
normal deposits of lime?

In mine disasters, steam explosions
and railway accidents the unspeakably
tragic and saddening feature is always
the number of ohlfdren left unprovided
for. By the terrible mine acclcent at
Spring Hill, N. S., 157 children were
thus thrown on the world,

St. Petersburg must be a nice place to
live in. It _has a population of a mill-
ion, yet there is no city directory. The
government cannot afford to permit one
on its side, and Nihilists do not want
one on their side. All the more easy it
becomes for deeds of blood and dark-
ness to be .wrought.

It is a fact that what is called "stand-
ard time" has not been legalized in the
United States. By commnon agreement
the great railroad companies settled on
it for their own convenience. Then the
large cities adopted it, also because it
was convenient. Cincinnati held out
longest, maintaining her own local time
for several years after the railways cen-
tering there had changed to standard
time, but finally she, too, fell in with
the new fashion. Legal disputes have
arisen over this question. .

What Is Beauty?
E. S. L, Adams writes in Harper's
/ Bazar lamenting the departure from the
S" / old Greek ideal of beauty of form, and
K declaring that the Greek ideal must be
the permanent model of beauty in the
"human figure for all time. E. S. L.
Adams, is mistaken. As ,rapes and
peoples change ideals of beauty change
vith them. The Greek represents' the
'' ideal beauty of a graceful, gay, rather
indolent race, given up to the worship
of merely sensuous beauty. The masses
of the people were not cultivated intel-
lectually as we understand intellectual
culture now, 'If you were to put the
modern Anglo-Saxon, hat.'upon the head
of an ancient Greek it would tumble
dowii over his nose, so much larger is
the head of the all dominating Anglo-
No,"E.-S.L.AdamsI Wedo notthink
like the ancient Greek;, we do not talk
like the ancient Greek, and we are in no
respect like him. We are full of, drive,
vim and aggression. Our women are,
.- types of the race. If they, too, gq, out'"
1 in tne battle of life and wrestle with the
forces that oppose them, they, too, will
become erect% squarer shouldered and
larger headed than the insipid 'faced,
Greek females with the beautiful figures
in marble. Each race has its own type
of beauty, and the'al! conquering Anglo-
.:Saxon ,in 'the ,'best development -is as
beautiful as, the individual of 'any race:
". that ever. went before him.-:So, is the
Angl0-Saxon woman, with ier squared,
shoulders and independent, slightly
.. cocedhead. Gotot
'-'** 'Something About Money:M~etals. *r
: .' There are two causes for".the..rise in

price'- o 11 f commodities.. One. is that' an<
' /" ...... article'*may be Scarce andl hard to-get.

...:i. Then if it is ,much in demand thie price
< :will rise. The other cause for rise, in
.'"-' ;, prices .may be abundance of mone-..
v ./';' ,When, money, whether "geld,si!\.er or

;< .,"paper, is plen~tiful/its value,' int comnpari-'
'. son to articles of merchandise, depreci:
;' ates. In other -wor,!s,, when) mone'ysis,

; plentiful more of it is required {o buy a
yard of cloth than -when money is scarce,
and prices are said to go up. It is well
known that when nobody has auy mone-y
; with which to purchase, prices sink away
below the average level. The two
causes theu of high'prices are scarcity
of the articles to be bought and depreci-

ated power of the money of a country to
buy. Bearing these simple economies
laws in mind will save much confusion
in the mind- of those who study the
monetary question.
Up to the year 1850 gold money was
comparatively scarce in the coinage of
the nations. Then the immense g.:.ol
deposits of "California began to be poured
into-the world's pockets. Shortly after
gold was found in .California the gol]
mines of Australia were discovered.
There was a tremendous addition to the
world's gold money between 1850 and
'- 1857. Gold became so plentiful that it
was no longer a very uncommon metal.
Consequently 'it was less prized, euin-
sequently more of it was r-quired to
purchase articles of food and clothing.
We fiuf, theref-ore, that the prices of
staplefcommod ih s ties went up 41) per cent.
fro 1850 to 18".. From 1:,. to 1.'s,
the United States and the Australian
countries added over $'2,000,0t,),('o0 in
gold to the world's coinage.
.; But by 1866 the flush times of gold
were over. It was no lougerpomv.,iri- into
: -men's hands so lavishly as it had b1,een.
Then the prices of commodities wenl
down again, following the gold,, supply
up and down like a barometer. Then
the silver wave came on, and silver was
poured upon the world from the mines
of the western United States. It became
so plentiful that, following the natural.
law, it ceased to be valued so highly,.
When one precious metal is much more
plentiful than the other, whether it -be
silver or gold, naturally the metal that
is abundant and therefore cheap crowds
the"scarce and therefore dearer one out

"The. Light of the World."
For some thirty years the dream of
writing "Pariadiso Lost" lingered in the
brain of John Milton before he had lei-
sure to undertake the pleasant task. He
meant it not- only as the great achieve-
ment of his one life, but as an epic of
the ages. At last the time came when
he could write it. He bent to his work
with single hearted devotion, toiled la-
boriously and carefully. He put into it
prodigious learning and intellectual
power. But, alasl the poetic fire and
enthusiasm of his splendid youth were
gone. The lime of advancing age had
got into his bones and his brain. His
hands and his poetry had become alike
stiff and lumbering. "Paradise Lost"
remains, a stupendous work, full of
massive power, an epic which will be a
classic as long as the Englisklanguage
lasts. But where are its fire, its passion
and enthusiasm? Where the fine play and
dash of poetic rainbow coloring? Ac-
cording to Henri Taine, they are lacking
It is an ungracious thing to say, but
Taine's criticism of "Paradise' Lost"
comes to mind on reading Sir Edwin
Arnold's "Light of the World." Our
Christian belief and modes of thought
tend to make us judge favorably of the
poem in advance. We naturally incline
to place it above "The Light of Asia."
We desire to do so; we expect to.
Nevertheless those who have conned
the pages of "The Light of Asia" o'er
and o'er, those to whom its sweet phil-
osophy and musical cadences are fa-
miliar as household words, #ill, whether
they confess it or not, feel a disappoint-
ment with "The Light of the World." A
friend of Sir Edwin writes that this poem
has been his daily and nightly dream for
ten years, and that he intends it to stand
as the crowning work of his greatly
gifted pen. So Milton thought; so,. too,
lke "Paradise Lost," "The Light of the
World" lacks the exquisite play of fancy,
the~infinite poetic 'grace and sweetness
of the poet's earlier, work. One feels
with prophetic instinctithat "The Light
of Asia,'" not "The Light of the World,"
will stand as Sir Edwin Arnold's great-
est poem. "
Probably the lines in ,The Light of
the World" that Will become most famil-
iar are these: .
Love, which'is Bsnlight of peace,'
Age by age to increase
Till anger and hatreds are dead
And..sorrow and death- shall cease:
"Peace on earth and good will!"
Souls-that are-gentle and still
Hear the first music of this -
Far off infinite, bliss! *. r

The American dressed beef plan will
probably be soon tried in India.. There,
on account of caste prejudice, the natives
will touch no. meat slaughtered and harn-
dled by C~hristians, or much of any other'
kind, On the -other hand, 'there are
vast numbers of Englisht government
and ,army employes who do eat meat
continually, and Want more, than they
get;, Vry few of the natives 'in "India
will slab 'bht:-r an animal on account 'of
their reli-nun, c''n.-ilering the killing of

ing strength; but Honore was failing.
Pierre saw this and rushed upon.him
with feeble but furious energy, striving
to beat down his guard.. He had suc-
ceeded, and Honore was at his mercy.
The next breath there was a sharp cry
of terror, the voice of a woman in utter
distress, and a strange, dull rushing
sound followed by a crash.
The duelists were swept from .their
feet and dashed headlong, a horse
tumbled over them and the fragments of
a small vehicle were scattered around.
In the midst of this wreck thus 'hurled
upon thq contestants a young woman
rose to her feet and stood, beautiful, dis-
heveled, frightened almost to madness,
but unhurt. It was Marie de Noyant.
The horse, after falling and rolling
over, struggled to its feet, and, with
parts of its harness still clinging to it
and trailing and, whirling about, ran
frantically away through the woods in
the directionof the town.
Overcome for a moment, the seconds
and surgeons stood staring and motion-
less, but they were men of nerve, and
"needed but time to take a breath and
pull themselves together before spring-
ing forward to the assistance of Honore
and Pierre, who lay as if dead on the
ground where the shock of the collision
had flung them.
Marie de Noyant had arisen early that
morning to keep a promise she had made;
to visit a sick and extremely aged creole
woman who lived in a small houseaback-'
in the woods on the road to Jordon
river. Feeling oppressed with what had
occurred between her and Pierre,. 4e or-
dered her servant to fetch her pony and
and cart and drove away alone before
thirest of the household were up. She
left the servant behind, .wishing to be
entirely free to commune with her heart
and to devise if possible some means of
softening Pierre',disappointment; While
she feared tha4s6mething dreadful
might come 6f th6 terrible passioh of the
young man, she did not 'dream that,
even while she drove slowly along the
dim road under the trees, a duel was in
progress between hint and Honore
Chauvin. tier pony, a stout, gentle ani-
mal, joggd.,l quietly f,:rward in the sand
between tlh- tufts of Spanish bayonet
-and thickets of bay bushes: overhead

of the pony. Miarie at th thiHin w\ts ab-

a slack hand. The puny t,.,-.,k iri'_-ht, as

whirled ;-.!uut ;d., almost. up.,-tting tho
cart, ran away throu h th, ft.ret zti fast
as his le.-:s c,:,ulhl c.N;rry him. 'hte move-
ment whisked the lines out uf Marie's
grasp, and solie lost cont.rrl. Discover-
ing his freedom, ani crazd-, with fright,
the hitherto genuti,' little animh l now be-
came a -.avag ,nd terrible l-it, reck-
less of everything, giving- no attention to
road or direction.
The rena,-i-r wi\ll I-.'dllrstiand at once
how the c.;t:st<:.ihe ;n_'me about at the
dueling grjiindL. lor thlie pony, accident-
ally heading. it-,elf that way, ran madly
and bliilly upont, the combatants. It
was-fpuoi ael a ha ilf mile from the spot,
with Pierr,';i rapi-r sheuth,-d to the hilt
in its breast. It hla 1 .tru!k the weapon's
point just as it wasi about t,, dart into the
'heart-of H,,,i-re (_.'hiuvin.
The<.sHan, est part c.f the \->iule adven-
ture was that Marie escaped-l without
even' the t lightest hurt.
The young ment were 1,or-ne to the
nearest house, where for many .hours
they lay side by !ideineenible,, Horio9t
hurts were nearly fatal, and Pierre was
crippled f,,r life. In .the c'ottrse of their
convalescence they both received the
gentle and untiring care of Marie. and
before they were able to leave the horse
their friendship ha,] b1een restored.
wAunt Clotl ilte, a very old colored
woman, who speaks t]othing, but the
French patois of the Creole country, is
thle only survivor :f the slaves owned by
Marie d. Noyant' father at the time of
the duel. You may, if you will visit
her in her little house on Hospital street
in New Orleans, have the story, that I
have here sketchfd. told to you in the
most picturesque way, and it always
ends with a minute descripfion of how
beautiful Marie looked in her whice
wedding gown when ihe and Honore
Chauviu were married.

lu the course of frequent and long
sojourns in the old French region of the
south I have made note of many roman-
tic. odd or otherwise interesting stories
of dueling, but none of them seems to
.mne more strange than this told me by
Annt Clothilde.
'Last winter I visited the spot where
the duel was fought, and while I tried
to imagine the scene as it was s-ixty-six
years ago a mocking bird quavered its
incomparable flute score from a was
myrtle bush on the edge of a fltowery
thicket hard by. What a peaceful spot
it was!-Maorice Thompson in New
York Ledger.

Effects of Pride.
An anci,-ut and distinguished indi vid-
ual writes:
"I owe my wealth and elevation -to
the neglect with which I used to be-
treated by the proud. It was a real
benefit, though not so intended. -It
awake-ned a zeal which did its duty,
and vas crowned with success., I de-
tvrmined, if this neglect was owing to
my wlti of learning, I would be studi-
ous and acquire it. I determined, if it
was owing to my poverty, I would ac-
cumulate property; if extreme vigilance,
industry. prudence and self denial
would do it (which will not always). I
determined, if it was owimgto my man-
ners, I would be more circumspect. I
was anxious, also, to show those whpo
had so,) treaty] me that I wa" undeserv-
ing such col!:]n--s. I was also warmed
by a desire th'it the proud should see me
on a level vith, or elevated above, them-
selves. ZAnld I was resolved, above all
things, net-ver to lose the consolation of
beibg conscious of not deserv-ing the

not made that could in any way serve
his turn in this moment of utter defeat.
"Oh, I am so sorry, so grieved, Pierre,
to see you .feel like thisI" cried Marie.
"You know I love you as a brother is
loved, very, very much, and".---
"As a brother!" muttered Pierre, with
bitter, desperate emphasis-"as a broth-
erP' And he turned and left the girl's
presence without another word. '
She made a movement as if to follow
him, but he had passed down the steps
and out of the gate with long strides,
like some actor in a melodrama.
Her first thought was of danger to
Honore Chauvin; for in those days the
hot French blood rarely cooled without
first having boiled over in deadly fight.
What Pierre Maton did was to go
straight to his friend Honore Chauvin
and slap him in the face.
"That for Marie de Noyant!" he ex-
claimed, still choking vith the desperate
choler excited by his sense of defeat.
"That for youl" he went on, repeating
the insulting blow. Then he.turned and
left Honore, well knowing what would
follow. -
The challenge was promptly sent and
as promptly accepted.
The following morning at a little'past
sunrise the combatants, with their sec-
onds and surgeons, met in a small open
space where two or three little wildwood
roads, dim and straggling, crossed each
other in the forest part of what was then
known as the Toulme plantation.. They
were to fight with swords.
The weapons were measured, positions
chosen, the word given, and the fight to
the death was begun' by a thin, keen,
far reaching clink of steel crossing steel.
Many a time had these young men,"
now eager for each other's blood, fenced
in manly play, and well did both know
how equally were they matched, and
how doubtful was the outcome of the
struggle they, were beginning. Both
were pale, but cool and wary; in their
eyes burned the hateful fire of unforgiv-
ing anger. The seconds stood aside, si-
lently but intently gazing on; the sur-
geons, a little farther away, held their
bandages and instruments ready.
Honore Chauvin, to do him justice, did
not wish to kill Pierre Maton, but
meant, if he could, to disable him. This,
however, was not so easy, for Pierre,
eager to slay, and burning with rage of
disappointed passion, was fighting like a
mad tiger, and yet with supreme vigi-
lance and art.
Their swords cut the air with hissing
swiftness and filled the space wit. a
clangor arid shower of spiteful sparks
that might well have stilled all the wild
songs of the birds in the "woods tound-
about. Once the keen point of ierre's
rapier barely touched Honore's -throat,
letting the least show of blood. In turn
Pierre felt a tingling scratch on his own
breast, but this exchange of ,touches
only shot into the fight a new access of
energy. As thd exercise began to steady
their excited-nerves and lend suppleness
to their leaping muscles they redoubled
their efforts, a4d Honore forgot his- re-,
solve to only wound Pierre, while Pierre
felt his desire to kill svwell into a steady,
deadly tempest of passion.
Again and again each of the combat-:
ants received slight wounds, mere
scratches; but neither appeared able to
break theother's guard or to find an un-
defended point, such touches as they
had given and received being more the
result of close fighting than of advantage
either way. .,But no matter how young,
and strong they were, or how expert,
A.this could not" aslt very long. The tre-
mendous strain was sure to tell. Who
would fail first and permit the other to
"make the fatalpass? ""
: They were panting how, and the white
foam was-theiering ou their purple lips.
Th,:ir eyes, starting and glaring with
concentrated fury, were fixed and ter-
rible in their animal expression. It wass
as if these twp men, s .lately friends
and almost brothers, were i'eady to man-
gle and devour each other like savage

b HatPil" the time when suechlt things
could be has gone by, but it is by keep.-
ing record of those strange acts that we
are able to understand the growth ot
our present civilization. The duel lin-
gered longer in the south than in the
north, and especially in the low country
did it list withoutt much sign, of passing
away till s,,ie time after the close of
our great \var. Looking back now we

can scare,-.ly reatlize that only half a
century a-:o it was a common occurrence
for two men to do what we are witness.-
ing betv.eent Honore Chauvin and Pierre
So much was d.lueling a partof the life
of the people in the early years of the
present ci)utu ry that in some parts of our
country to rt-fuse a challenge was to in-
vste social ostracism, and not to give and
not to give one on fit occasion wuas snre
to attract contempt.
The se;.-ouds and the .urgeons stood by
so wrapped in contemplation of the even
hanled- fight, so engrossed in watching
the leaping blades, and so forgetful of
everything save this play of death, that
theov did not hear the sound of wheels
and the rapid beating of a flying horse's
feet.. As for the principals, they would
not hlve heard if a thunderbolt had
fallen at their feet. They were now
lghtiug in thI last spurt of strength be-
fore oue or the other must. fail. Each.
f'elL that if his antagonis:t held up a few
minutes longer all would be over. The
reflection of this thought set a terrible
light in their drawn and haggard faces.
The mufflel sound of wheels in the
sand and of the furiou.ns flight of a horse
came nearer and nearer. The seecods
leaned forward as the intensity of their
sympathy with their principals seemed
to shrivel them, as if with heat; the sur-
Sgeoens unconsciously drew closer to the
Spantin-, laboring duelists.
Honored Chauvin at. this moment made
a, lumge; Pierne avoided it by a supreme
effort; the movement caused them to ex-
change po,.-tious, and as the" did so
L Pierre shot out a quick thrust that
.pierced Honore's sleev'e without touch-
ing the flesh; his points hung a half sec-
,nd, and Honore wa\sz just in the act of
running him through when lie tripped on
a small root and staggered back. Now


Bo yond where the marshes are dauk and wide
Is a ladder of red anad gold.
S VWwe the aua has s'tk in the ashfting tide
' *;* Of the clouds that the night elves mold.
'It leads to tho portals of Maybo Land,
Whose castles and groves we see,
On a vapor bank e'er the mists expand,
To darken the wind swept sea.
Me there that our wishes are all made true,
Where frowns may not mar the brow,
Where storms never matter the whole year
Where Then Is transformed to Now,
And only the dreamer who Idly halts
With a pmncil aud brash ian hand
Can travel the path to the mystic vaults
And the treasures of Maybe Land.
-Philander Johnson in Washington Post.


The village of Bay St. Louis was a
favorite dueling-grouind in the days when
an appeal to swords or to pistols was
thought by southern gentlemen to be the
only honorable way of settling personal
grievances. Those daysare past, and now
there is not a more peaceful and certain-
ly not a more beautiful town in all the
picturesque coast country.
If ever you shall be going to New Or-
leans by way of the railroad from Mo-
bile you will find it well worth while to
stop and spend a few days at this lovely
summer resort.
If you will take a carriage and a driver
who knows the place you may spend a
day or two delightfully in exploring the
ins and outs, by highway and byway, of
a settlement that dates back to the time
when the Spaniards and the Prench were
playing battledore and shuttlecock with
all our rich and salubrious gulf-coast
country. Even now in the streets and
picturesque little shops of Bay St. Louis
you hear the soft accents of Spain and the
polite intonations of Paris.
The people have soft voices and gentle
manners, amdit is hard to imagine, much
harder to believe, that it was ever true
of them that, they stood ready, on the
strength of the slightest insult, to fight
to the death, as a matter of honor; but
so it was. There are men living now
who saw many duels in the days of the
"code." One charming old gentleman
informed the present writer that he had
witnessed twenty hostile meetings with
sword or pistol.
Before the days of 'the railroad which
.now makes Bay St. Louis but one
hour and thirty minutes from New Or-
leans, the only approach was by water,
save from the interior of Mississippi.
This rendered the place one of the most
secluded nooks in America, and, as a
matter of course, a considerable number
of refugees from justice or from mis-
fortune or tyranny fled thither; but the
larger part of the population was highly
.respectable; some of it was made up,
especially in summer, of the wealthiest
and best French families of N]ew Or-
leans, who came by steamboat to spend
the hot season ini elegant cottages on the
breezy bluffs.,
Nearly all, the duels ever fought at
Bay St. Louis took place in one or an-
other secluded spot in the lonely woods
behind the town., These woods are ndwlw
dotted with creole and negro cottages,
the homes of poor people, who find an
easy if not luxurious life where the fish
Sin the bayous and the fruits oni the trees
'. are tobe had with but the smallest out-
S lay of labor. Evei- since the place was:
first settled, and even< before, these
> woods have been a maze,of crossed and,
tangled roads, paths 'and trails first
made by the Indians., You can ride Dr
'drive everywhere and in every direction,
.. andyet the growth is, thick, often ob-
structing the sight on all sides.:. Now
and aagamn you' come upon Jittle natural
^. .'. glades..or. openings set in-wild-grass and
surrounded with a wall of trees. These
!".. are the spots that were chosen for,the
dreadful work of the duelists.
About the year 18'24 two young men
.' "' .... of. New Orleans were lovers of a beaut.i-
; ful girl by the name of Marie de Noyant,
: whose- father had a summer place at
};'. Bay St. Louis. Of course, Marie could
: not accept the attentions of both if she
S', loved either, and as Honore Chanvin
,' ,;: had'captured her heart, there was noth-
".?. ing for Pierre Maton to do but to chal-
lenge his successful rival to mortal com-
: b a t. ,' ... .
" "< The three families--Noyants, Chan-
vins and Matons-were of the best in
i? New Orleans, and had always been on
the most intimate terms socially. Honored
and Pierre had known Marie from her
childhood up', they had been her play-

mates, her friends, and now they were
her lovers. Both were handsome, rich
and honorable, as honor was understood
at the time and place. If Marie hesi-
tated to choos, between them it was not
because of any doubt in her heart. She
knew that she loved Honore, and quite
/ as well she was'aware that under no cir-
cumptauces could shie ever love Pierre.
Still it was very hard for her, when
Pierre came to her home on the bay and
asked her to be his wife-ib was hard to
break in on his passionate appeal with
the truth that .must' crush him. She
begged for time to consider, and thus
put off the unpleasant, nay, the tortnr-
ing, duty that she owed to herself and
to her lovers. But the moment came
when she could no longer procrastinate.
1i.,re, doubtless aware that his rival
was besieging the citadel of his lady's
heart, came also to Bay St. Louis and
urged his suit.
.Gently, kindly, sweetly as she could,
Marie put au end to Pierre's hopes; but
it was not iu her power to blunt in the
least the terrible point of her refusal.
Love is not to be set aside with polite-
ness, nor can it be assuaged by generous
friendship and tender kindness. Any-
Sthing short of love is a stab to love.
"Then it is Honore Chauvin that you
care for, Marie?" said Pierre, rising
to go.
Marie arose also, and they stood look-
-. ing at each other. The-y had been sit-
- thing on a vine covered verauda, with the
.-- waves of the bay tumbling in against
the beach in full view.
.? "Yesi Pierre," she sail presently, "I
will not deceive you or c-vade your qties-
tion. I do love Houore, and I promised
-.':' him tpday that I would be his wife."

The Japanese Nation.
As for the people, writes Sir Edwin
Arnold in the arch Secribner, I am,
and always shall be, of good St.
Francis Xavier's feeling: "This na-
tion is the delight of my soul!"
Never have I passed days more
happy, tranquil or restorative than
among Japanese of all classes, in the
cities, towns and villages of. Japan.
SPossibly that is because I have had
no business relations with my kind
and pleasant Niponeso friend.n, and
have never talked very much meta-
physics; but it seems certainly an
easy way to keep on the right side of
folks, to let philosophy and theology
alone. 'Moreover, it is, no doubt,
necessary for such experiences to go
a little behind that sort of Japan
which you find on the Hatobas of
Yokohama or Kobe, in the Yorshi-
waras of those and the other open
ports. At very little distance from
S the surface, which we civilizing
westerners have done our best to
spoil, will be still discovered the old,
Schangeless, bigh-tempered, generous,
smile and sweet-mannered Japan of
old. I frankly confes it has en-
tirely charmed me; and therefore
what. I say of this Japanese nation,
and their manners and customs,
must be received with the proper
caution attaching to a friend, and
even a lover. But where else in the
world does there exist such a con-
spiracy to be agreeable; such a wide-
sprea compact to render the diffi-
-cult affairs of life as smooth and
graceful as circumstances admit;
S such fair decrees of fine behavoir
fixed and accepted for all; such uni-
S versal restraint of the coarser impul-
ses- of speech and act; such pretty
Spicturesqueness of daily existence;
such livel-y ,love of nature as the em-
bellisthei" of that existence 'such sien-
cere delight in' beautiful artistic
things; such frank enjoyment of the
';,:, enjoyable; ouch tenderness to little
S children; such reverence for parents
and old persons.; such widespread
refinement of: taste and habits'; such
courtesy to strangers; such willing-
S. nees to please and' to be pleased ?
