been engaged about a year, and their j
wedding day, although not definitely
decided upon, was looked upon as mt j
far distant. In the meantime, how-!
ever, Mr. Alison, Edgar's father, had i
become seriously embarrassed in his I
business affairs ; and matters had
grown continually worse, unlil the
climax was reached, rendered still
IV.- re severe, as well as unavoidable, by
the general prevalence, at the time, i f
business failures. While still working
with every nerve of brain and body,
in one of those desperate struggles
which so often end in either success or
death, a fever, induced by the iiitense
excitement, had terminated his life,
Irn'inirhis affairs in almost hornless
confusion, while his wife's health was
so shattered bv the terrible shock that
she was reduced to the condition of a
confirmed invalid.
Edgar, xx ho had graduated a year
before, and was then at a law school,
dropped his books and came home at
ouee, to see what he could do in the
way of saving something from the
wreck of his father's estate.
Clara Denton, his allianccd, was an
orphan, ami jHissessed of n fortune
amounting to about seventy thousand
dollars, w hich xx as under the charge of
a prudent nml careful lawyer, her
guardian, while she was not to be per
mitted to have control of it until she
would be twenty-three years of age.
Well, Clara," said Edgar, breaking
it painful silence, "at our engagement,
I supposed my fortune would be alaiut
equal to yours. Noxv, I scarcely dare
to feel certain of being able to sax e

Snails.
In the French journals a discussion
has again cropped up as to the value
of snails as fond. It appears that the
species of snail which is eaten in
France possesses very nourishing
qualities. The analysis of the well
known chemist, Payen, shows that the
snail contains seventy per cent, water
sixteen per cent, nitrogen, eight per
cent, fat, two per cent, animal salt and
four per cent, of other constituent
parts, The ancient Itoiiians were well
aware of these good qualities, and used
the snail as a stimulating remedy for a
bad appetite, just as nowadays wc use
caviare or oysters, and had a particular
way of preparing it. From Italy they
were transported to France. They are
still a favorite dish in Hohemia, and
are dclieiously dressed in the best res
taurants of Prague.
