Really it mattered little to her whether empire or republic ruled In France; her despot1? sway could go on just the same, in Orient or Ocrident, wherever men with enormous bank cwuhts and hearts to break could be found. She cared more about breaking the cool disdain of Mark Merrick and bringing him to her feet than for the Orleanist cause. Merrick did not know what it was alt about He was soon to learn. When those men began to close in like dogs around the quarry at bay, Merrick discovered, to his intense disgust and chagrin, that he was almost in the center of the disturbance. t)f course, bis only thought was of Constance and his fear lest she should be injured in case of any rioting or in the direction of the heir apparent to the Russian throne. Have no fear, darling. he said, Bteadlly, perhaps glad of a chance to Address the alarmed girl so tenderly, and again thrust his personality between her shrinking form and danger. The princess, eagerly watching every move, saw that the man they had believed to be the President made no attempt to fly that he showed no atgn of fear, but calmly awaited the fcojplng bf the advancing royalists. there was something so nonchalant , about his manner, so unlike the demonstrative Frenchman, that the keeneyed Russian woman had her suspicions aroused. He acts like a man who has expected just such a thing to occur. Mon Dieu! It may be a Waterloo for Count Leon yet. Monsieur Jones is going to be heard from before the curtain falls upon the last act She ended her soliloquy with a cry, for her gaze had wandered to the other quarter Just in time to see Merrick send one man headlong to the ground because he had dared to lay a hand upon Constance, and then placing the now thoroughly frightened girl behind him, face the eager crowd With & weapon in his hand. xh Course. Chapter Of The men who were oppose! to Merrick had seen firearms before; some of them had doubtless fought through the war under the bloody banner of Louis Napoleon, and hence they were hardly to be deterred In their purpose by the fierce aspect of a love pilgrim at bay, and leveling a little pocket revolver. True, it looked serious enough with o determined a foeman facing them, but there was no coward present. Merrick might have done much more damage had not luck been against Franco-Germa- n him. His intentions were of the best, but it was perhaps fortunate iu the end that some one struck his arm just as he let fly hiB first shot, which went wide of the mark and wounded where he grimly meant to kill. Constance shrieked as she saw them bear down upon her lover; when his weapon was torn from his hand In the scuffle he still struck out manfully, and gave a warm welcome to those who closed in. It was of short duration, of course, Since Mark did not possess the powers of a gladiator, and those who engaged him were seven to his one. Panting for breath, with his coat half ripped from his back, his hat lost and hair disheveled, while blood marked several scratches upon his face, he finally ceased to struggle. Count Leon saw that thus far his game, so boldly wrought, had met with complete success. Jones was still missing, and by this time the doughty count had about come to the conclusion that it had all been a false alarm with reference to the ability of the wonderful Yankee to interfere with their grand scheme. The natural pride that causes man to puff out and strut like a king when his plans are successful was again taking hold upon the African explorer. An exodus at once began. There was no attempt of any kind made to prevent the triple abduction. The whole army of Monacos princeling could not have stayed these desperate cavaliers, and surely it did not behoove any of the cosmopolitan guests of Monte Carlo to interfere at the risk of their lives. So the good people flocked about the gardens again; the buzz of eager conversation arose, very like the drone of a great hive of bees, and many eyes were glued upon the star-li- t harbor, where the rocky promontory of Mentone ran like a great scimetar into the sea. Meanwhile, the last scene in the exciting drama was being enacted below. Jones had bided his time, knowing that he held the trumps with which to sweep the board. Some men take the keenest satisfaction in allowing matters to almost reach a victory for the opposing forces ere showing an invincible hand. Merrick was grinding his teeth in anger because he found himself unable to assist Constance down the steep path that would take them to the beach. He knew now that the sensation he experienced at sight of the English boat had some foundation; and he was far from being a superstitious man. He did not intend to give up without one more desperate struggle; they had torn half of his coat from his back, and might as well finish the job. At the same time he was fully aware how hopelessly such a battle must be, with such tremendous odds against him. The descent of the steep path had been accomplished in safety, and now where the little wavelets they washed up on the pebbly strand; in the daytime it was a beautiful spot, and even in the starlight, with numerous boats drawn upon the beach, it presented an attractive appearance. This was where Jones had marshaled his forces and lay in wait like a huge spider, ready to pounce upon his foe. Count Leon's first intimation of danger was when a voice called out suddenly in French: Btood Make ready! The awful clicking, as of many hammers belonging to firearms being (Lrawii back, sonnded from tha darkness around, from behind adjacent boats 2nd bathing houses.

Good heavens! were they to be mowed down like cattle In the shambles, without the chance brave men demand of at least seeing their foes? Count Leon, flesinit fighter that hfl was. could not stand ibis. Perhaps the spark of chivairy within his natnre arose in rebellion at the idea of one so Innocent and fair as Constance being made s victim to a tragedy; and yet this same man was in the act of carring her off to become his unwilling bride. The motives of Frenchmen are and always will be prettv much of a mystery to Ango aton iiitoilbctd. At any rate, be had the good Sensd to avert what threatened to be a tragedy by exclaiming: Hold! do not fire! We have a lady here! Do you surrender thenf' the voice. On a hat terms? That you give up those you hold. The count now knew with whom be had to deal. There was a mighty struggle in his mind, but he realized the game was lost, and nothing could be gained by a desperate battle, since the hour for the Orleans priuce had not yet come. I agree to the terms; monsieur, providing not hue of us is detained, he answered, steadily. Then It is settled. Release your prisoners and disperse before we change our minds. Ah! Monsieur Jones, I hope we may meet again, he said, moodily, thinking what pleasure It would be should he run across the wonderful Yankee somewhere in the Soudan. And do not forget Stromboloff, monsieur, for he has sworn to be the death of you one of these fine days, called out the raging Cossack, who W'ould but for Villebois' restraint have run madly in the direction of the hated voice and taken his LOVES THE PRATRIES, weakness of poor mankind.

It Is as follows: Any animal Imported by a citizen of the United States specially for breeding purposes shall be admitted free, whether intended to be so used by the importer himself or for sale for such purpose: Provided, That no such animal shall be admitted free unless purebred of a recognized breed, and duly registered in the books of record established for that breed: And provided further. That certificate of such record and of the pedigree of such animal shall be produced and submitted to the customs officer, duly authenticated by the proper custodian of such book of record, together with the affidavit of the owner, agent, or importer that such animal is the Identical animal described In said certificate of record and pedigree: And provided further.

In Favor of Angoras. Live stock breeders kuow that any animal must be properly cared for if he is expected to be profitable, says W. C. Bailey. The idea that an gora goat requires no sheds, no caie. no winter feeding, but ouly an eight foot perpendicular fence and a place to run, originates in the mind of the person who has never handled domestic animals. Cuttle or sheep men would not expect to turn cattle or sheep loose and derive much of a profit from them, nor would they expect to start with a laigo number of animals of whose habits and requirements they knew little, unless they had an experienced man to caro for them. Angora goats do require a perabout thirty-sipendicular fence inches high, and one which they cannot crawl through or under. They will rarely jump over a fence unless trained to do so. Good, warji, dry sheds are necessary in damp, cold climates, and plenty of freedom and exercise are essential. Low, wet, marshy ground is unfit goat pasture, and the beginner who makes the greatest success with goats will commence with a eomparathely small number of selected animals, whose habits and whose welfare he considers. Goats do not interfere with the pasturage of cattle or sheep, as the Angora is a browser and not a grazer. Some of the centra cattle breeders have discovered that a few goats in a cattle pasture will keep weeds and brush down and the fence lines clean, and that they make their winter living out of the excess of food which the cattle leave. cost FOWLS. Them Hour Admiring elves In Mirror. A pair of guinea fowls were introduced as pets into the garden of a young man up town the other week, The says the Philadelphia Record. wings of the birds were clipped, so that they might not fly away, and thoy were quartered in an outhouse that happened to contain a mirror. Theeffect of the mirror on the guineas seems hardly credible. They post themselves before It, and there, studying their reflections Intently, they stand perfectly motionless and silent for hours at a time. It is imto drive them away with possible shouts or They must be carried forth bodily, and then, as soon as they can, they return. No matter how fine the weather may be, the guineas remain In the outhouse, gazing at themselves in the mirror. To get them to take exercise it is necessary to carry them forth, and then to shut up the outhouse tight The owner of the fowls thinks that perhaps the mirror hypnotizes them.

Now ouj one who has looked at the skeleton of a snake and it is really a very beautiful object will have been struck by the great number ol ribs, which may be as many as ten hundred and fifty pairs. In these lies the secret of the ability of the serpent to do some of the wonderful things. The lower end of each rib Is connected with one of the broad scales that run along the under side of the snake, and when a rib is twisted slowly backward, it pushes on the scale, the edge of the scale catches on the ground or whatever object his snakeship may be resting on, and the body of the snake is pushed just a little bit forward. Of course, each rib moves the body but a mere trifle, but where the ribs are bo many, and they are moved one after another, the result is that the snake moves slowly but steadily ahead. SL Nicholas.

Prof. Henry gives the result of an experiment with bone meal fed with corn. He found that 28 per cent less grain was required to make 200 pounds of pork; hardwood ashes and salt had nearly the same effect. We learn from this that by use of this condiment the cost is reduced by nearly one cent a pound. W. J. Fraser. Wrong Impression About Pigs. When the bacon hog was first introduced many farmers were shy of him, thinking that he would be hard to feed, but experiments that have been made with different breeds to ascertain if possible which breeds give the best results for food cousumed, go to show that no one breed cau claim superiority in this, as different breeds came out ahead at different times. Experiments show that as much depends on the individual as on the breed. Another wrong impression that prevailed was, that by selling bogs at 1G0 to 180 pounds weight we were losing money, as it was thought that at that size the and additional frame was grown weight could be added at less cost per pound. Experiments time and again show that the first fifty pounds cost less than the second, the second fifty pounds less than the third, and so on. Feeds and Feeding.
