AN INTERESTING CASE OF SE
A short time ago the family of a Russi
an prince went to Paris from London.
Among 1 he r servants was a young Ger
man girl whom the princess bad engaged
dining their sojourn ia Wurtembeig. As
all the hotels a', the time were crowded,
they sent a courier in advance to secure
convenient rooms, and they were regular
customer at the Hotel B, where the Rus
sian unbleman usually took lodgings, the
couiier only succeeded in getting two
rooms in the third story fr the prince
snd his wife, and on the pressing instance
of tbe priuaesa the- hotel-keeper proa. ised
to find a mom also for the youiig Ger
man attendant. It was about one o'clock
in the night when the air! I ft ber mis

her great astonishment it as a front room
in the ec and story, with two large win
dows, and lurntshed In the most gorge

ter why tbhi roam Was not given to her
mislres in preference to herself ; but he
satisfied ber by the answer that tbe room
had become vacant only au hour since,
after the prince and Ilia wife had already
been installed in other apartments, and
she ui'gbt, so he added smilingly, profit
by the opportunity of sleeping once at
least in such a splendid room The girl
then locked the dor, extinguished the
light, and sought sleep under the gorge
ous canopy. And now we let the girl tell
her own story, as we translate it from the
language in which she related it a few
weeks ago, to a commission 01 seieuiinc
men. who afterwards examined her :
I do not know whether I slept or
dresined or whether I was awake and
gas'-d with ay bodily eyes. But I
thought then that I was awake, and I be
lt ve it still. This is, however, indiffer
ent. At once the door, which I had pre
viously locked, was opened, and a gentle
man entcied with a light in his band.

Tbe temptation to talk of persons rath

way sister. Toe petty details of your
life, breakfast, dinner and lea, poultry to
day, end roast beef to-morrow, Jennie's
whooping cough, and Fred's measles,
Bridget's incompetence, or the heedless
ness of Mary Aun, aud tbe never ending
demands of fashion, here, almost before
you know it, a narrowing effect upon
yonr mind. Theoretically you despise
gossips practically you add your mite
very often to the common fund. You are
not ill-Matured. The sweet charity that
"ibmketh no evil," has its home in your
heart's core, yet sometimes alas I it falls
asleep, and anger, wra'.b and bitterness
come stealthily creeping ap to the oat
posts. There are many great things which wo
cannot do, however earnestly we may
try. There are some little things which,
with faith in God, and sincere resolution,
we can accomplish, and one ef these is to
reform our conversation.
Every woman should cultivate a nice
sense of honor. In a hundred different
ways this most fitting adjunct of the true

There is a sorrow in the house unsuspect

dissipated son whose conduct is a shame
to his parents ; sometimes it is a discon
