Youth's Cmpantoa Cardinal Richelieu. rounded on the Play of ,,Richelieu," by Lord Lytton. CHAPTER IL The Life of Damocles. In the largest and handsomest new house in that Rue Richelieu which the cardinal had opened to give his palace breathing-room on the side toward that wood of Boulogne ever cited in the chronicles of Paris, the revels were held high and late. The grand room presented one of those scenes which the prevalent vice of gambling heightened by the tables beln laden with gold and silver coins, crown-pieces, doubloons. and precious stones, which were still employed as a sort of coin. Mirrorv, paintings, and gildings were inter- mixed with statues bea,'ing baskets filled with fruit and flowers There was a long table loaded with re- freshments at the end opposed to th gallery on high, where a band of violins and flutes played soft Italian music and the povular madrigals: Them were beautiful women pres- ent, but the hostess, then in scarce her thirtieth year, bad been so rarely and bounteously gifted by nature in both face and figure that she could not be seen to permit a comparison. She wore her own fair hair in bunches of small curls, a magnificent [ace collar reaching to her shoulders, over a body of that blue hue which the niece of Mazarin, years after, lifted into vogue, pearls and dia- monds, a white satin skirt embroider- ed with ,,the Canadian diamonds" a pebble which the colonizers were sending home as specimens of that bleak new-found-land--and white velvet slippers. Her mouth was so small as to seem a caricature of woman's, but fresh and unsmoared with vermillion; her ears. most pretty'and softly pink; and her eyes really blue, but seemed to be vicar in the shadow of the long lashes She moved about from table to table, now bestowing on a player ,,the lucky look" he besought to ,,change the run:" now sharing a glass of white wine from her native Champagne with a courtier; then throwing the dice for another luck- less gamester; signing for the musicians to play more loudly, or to the troop el domestics to replenish the table of comestibles. There seemed not to escape her the move- ments of a single guest, his inter- jections zu anger or detight,.and yet it was all the true hostess line of duty. ',On the peril of my life, Bering- hen," said a sonorous voice among one group of players whom a sweet word of the lady had checked in a rising wrangle ,,I shall see the sister of this ruling star never again! Your Marion is so much superior and ye there is a resemblance, by'r nameI I shall sigh for the unattain- able pattern, whilst the copy is a perpetual reminder." ,,Never a moment more favorable, Mauprat," returned the other man. ,,Her marriage de conscience with Cinq-Mars is dissolved and Marion is free." ,,But a poor soldier--" "Pooh! She's a good heart and scorns no poverty but that of spirit." ,,And I--come to think of it--could never love such a nonpardil with a whole heart." Then turn away. Marion is like the Venus of old. and commands un- divided worship. Like her too, she is all the old monkish tutor would translate to me of the hymn to the goddess who inspires her; admirable to conciliate, a daughter of heaven. an alLvanquisher--victrix cranium!" "A miracle! count, turn and see a mlracl De .Beringhen knows a word of Latin!" cried one of their companions. ,'And add," stud the nobleman ap- pealed to. as he slowly passed with an amicable nod to the gentleman called Mauprat, ,,that our Marion cast her spell over the red cardin'alP' At the name a deeper silence and a sharp chill was diffused. The Boldier Muprat started, gnawed his lip with a change of color which ex- tended so as to blanch it also, and in a moment frowned as if he had lost all the pile of money and jewels before him. ',What does it matter?" cried he, Imaking an effort to smile as before, |th recklessness if not enjoyment "A well by the ax us by wind to mo tl' ground.

But will wager my boots--and they are new--that you are el ten thousand times better family." ,,To riseto remain oppressed bah! under a despotism like Rich- elieu's, let us be content who are lowly. Despotism is a flame on the altar; it will warn those who stay a- neeling, but scoich those who lift a open, then. their cages, and wish %em merry. I regret no more the flight of one than that of the other." ! Baradas shook his heal. To him, Adrlen was as reat an enigma as to his late comrades in camp and at backgammon board. Fiery in war, he. was yet lukcwarln to lory; all mirth in action, in repose he was loomy. He never confided even to Baradas. whohad known him longest, though fortune of late had severed them, and led the one to the rank of courtier, count and favorite, and the other to the titles of the wildest llant and bravest knight in France. e gloomy secret was one that haunted him as of old men were possessed of fiends! Wherever he turned the grave yawned dark be- fore him, for he was perpetually un- hand unto it.

"The Egyptian syren dis- solved her richest jewel in a draught. Would I could so melt time and all its treasures, and drain it thus!" he drained it to the last bubble of liquid ruby. 'Double the stakes," said Bering- hen. ,,Don" But again he lost, leading young spirits reckless as hmself, he seized on the own.of Favmux. Orleans blamed the cheva- lier for acting "without his orders." Upon which quibble Richelieu razed his name from the general pardon. Nevertheless he rleased him from the Bastile to call him into his pres. on'co. He told him that he deserved death, but the headsman having blunted his ax lately on lordlier necks, he would allow him to receive a soldier's fate. He bade him join his troops, then on the march against "Bravo! faith it shames me to the Spaniards.

One or two of the by-standers exchanged ex- pressive glances, the loss of the lady preceded by only a few moments that of the knight's last coin. ,,One throw more?" inquired the king's valet` ,,No, I am a bankrupt. There goes all--except my honor and this," he touched his sword-hilt, a blade for fighting, no parade. And neither are valuables at court." His antagonist" was reckoning up his winnings with the complacency of a victor for the mere words of the defeated man. ,'We do not want honor." retorted a companion of the king's gentle- man, ,,because we have a sufficiency; and as for the sword, take it to C.'wdinal Eichelieu, who gives gold for steel when worn by brave men." -Richelieu! Clermont Richelieu. you say?" repeated Mauprat. with a darkening face. "He seems no friend of you." ob- served Beringhen, looking at him in some gravity, but the next moment he rose with an effort, overburdened with the gold in his pockets add the wine in his head. At the grand stairway Count Bar- adas stayed him, and learnt his vic- tory. ,,Wrecked Mauprat. oh?" with an expression not to be interpreted by one out of the secreof the heart of the favorite of the king. ,,And you leave him without a word of com- fort?" ,,Comfort!" stammered De Bering- .hen, ,,when we gallant's have run out a friend there's nothing left--ex- cept to run him through! there's the last act of friendship. ]' And pitch- ing forward, he had to run to keep from falling, and disappeared through the hedge of servants lining the corridor. Baradas went over the steps they had traced and paused coutemplat- ively t the table where the defeated gamester had been left alone. He had stretched out his legs and rested his feet on theBrrowels in that agzresslve ch may be no- ticed in th's dog basking with elongaefore the shop.

Young, well-favored, he seemed constituted with the for- tune which he had lost to dwell in enviable happiness. He was not in- dolent, and so he chaffed at there be- ing no outlet for his energy. He was not vain, and so he was oblivi- ous of his figure! but still, he ought to have been desirous to live in the daylight, pot under the glimmer of tapers, follow a flag and not a petti- coat, and hope for long years. After his long scrutiny, which no one interrupted Count Baradas placed himself in one of the vacant chairs beside the moody man, and thdsaddressed him in a melodious and soothing tonc -Adrien.we were in boyhood com- panions.

Hiss, be lively, hopeful and come and salute your old commander, the prince of Orleans!

One of the most noted lies about five miles from An- napolis, at the head ot Broad creek South river. As seen recently .it was, so far as the clean, clots- cut letters are concerned, as perfect as the day it was erected, nearly two centuries ago. It is the tomb i of Henry Ridgely, and reads: "Here lyeth the body of Mr. Henry Ridgley, who was born on the 3rd. of October, 1669, and departed this life on ye 19th day of March. 1699."
