Ilardie landed in Fncrnmento with about

amply rrpiid the adverturers for their time

the company had rea ized twenty thousand
dollars. This was equally divided, one

while the other was retaired by their co

for twenty five hundred duliars.-

A number of spectu ors were at the fable

A few seconds of silence folk wed the
placing of the “deck” iu the faro-box, and
h:n amid the silence might be heard the
noi:e of the cards as they were drawn there
from anddioppid upon their operate piles.

and ere the sound of the vuioc had died away

But before the announc ment ihe queen’s

his father’s body slightly quivered s with
emotion, and then remained passive as ber

added to by tho bankerp but he did uot at

his luck the secoud time? Yes! he made

Again tho c> ids were dealt from the box,

iu n calm but somewhat unsteady voice—

The announcement that the hai k had

of the spectators, who instantly set up u

The Snleriiipled Marriage.
BY WILLIAM COMSTOCK.
A couple of young girls, seated on a dwell
rssii a pleasant culture ou the outskirts ol
Ha Seilie, a pretty village ristufed on the
lowest point of tl ti Bay es Touh n, discussed
a subject which seemed to be to them of the
high' at importance.
“Thou art mistaken, Z pbyrine,” cried
the younger, whoso eyes and hair were very
dai k, and who wort-a white silk frock, wiih
pink garnitures ; “the long veil aud orange
wreath are g 'ing out of fasho n, aud Blanche
will be married iu white crape, trimmed
* 1 Lope she won’t go back to the style in
which our grandmothers were married, and
put on the amadis, troin and all ; but let me
tell thee, l’aulette, that I don’t think Blanche
is happy, whatever may be her dress and coif
fure, or however splmdid may be tros
seau and curb'dllc.”
“J/a fui! Zephyrine, thou dost not sup
pose tlmt Blanche herself with

on old Madame Dclarme, who lives in the
hut by the seaside, aud pay her five fraues
for bcrcroakiugs V’
“Asd what did the old Lu’.dame till hci?”
“Why, thou knowest that on aeo uot of a
strange dream,. Blanche has been troubled
with a fear thaf something would interfere
to prevent her oiairiago. She has got the
promise from Aladamo Dclarme that no man
or woman living shall thwart her wishes.”
“Then she ought to be content.”
“Truly she ought, unless she fears that
some ghost shall come from the churchyard,
or h’om the morgue, and interfile between
her and her affianced.”
“She is safe, if no living person interferes
with her. Yet she is content ?”
“She is more sad than ever.”
“I have never learned the nature of hci
dr am,” sail Paulette.
“That is the mystery, She has never told
h(sr dream ; she seems to hold it iusui!: hor
ror that she is afraid to hear it from her own
“Truly, then, she places little confidence
in ths eouthsayi:!.”
‘ It is possible,” said Z pbyrine, “that the
words es (he soothsayer do not reach tbr
case. Her dream, it seems to me, muit
have touched upon the supernatural, and
may have lo relatiuu to a living man or

She was about the m (Idle height, oxqui

thought the sylph predominated too much.

was hoard, as if ths roof was bio 1 en in,thr

Almost at the smic moup n*, a quivering,

“Ul’, horror! he has come! ” shrieked
Blanche; and she fell lifeless upon tie do»d

The mother of the bride was borne fniot

able to guess what had oecuried.
