Tlie Trumpeter’s Horse. I wu nearly forty, and felt mwself so secure ly anchored in my old bachelor crotchets that on every occasion I swore, with all sincerity, ami by all the gods in the heavenly calendar, I would never take a single risk in the matri monial lottery; but—I counted without the trumpeter’s horse. It wa' toward the last of September, 1SG4. I was on my way back from Baden-Baden, end inte ded to spend, at most, a day iu Par is. I had invited four or five of my fti nds, for the huutiug season, to my estate in Pictou. They were to arrive early in October, and at least a week was necessary to make prepara tion, al T,a Roche Targe for their reception. A kilter fiommy r eward that awaited me in Paris brought unwelcome news. My hounds were all in good condition, but five of my trslv® hunters had either fallen sick ot some horse disorder or had become lame during my absence. I war, therefore, compelled to sup ply their places with others. To this end I made a tour iu the Elysian fields among the dealers, who sho ' ed me any number of animals—some better, some worse —that they recommended as hunters at a moderate, price—about three thousand francs on the average. I had experienced losses at Baden-Baden, and consequently I was iu no —r-ynaMjWpBtMWWBfvBiKhl Imndml louia d or without mature deliberation. It was a Wednesday. Cheri, one of the prircipal dealers, had his first sale of the sea son. Without any further knowledge of the animals be offered than what I derived from the catalogue and from their appearance. I bought eight fur live loousanu iraucs. Among them I hoped to find four or five, at least, that would enable me to get through the sea son. Among my purchases there was one horse that I bought almost solely on account of his color, which was truly beautiful. The cata logue attributed no special qualifications to him for the chase. He was entered simply as “Brutns, saddle-horse, well built, thoroughly broken, age unknown.” He was a beautiful dapple-grav. large and very handsomely formed. The next day I went home; a* d the day following, early in th • forenoon, a servant came and informed me that horses had arriv ed. I immediately went out to see them, or, rather, to see Brutus; for the handsome fel low had been in my head ever since 1 bought him, and I was singularly impatient to find out what kind of a comrade he was going to make, and what he was capa ble of doing. I had him brought out of the stable first. He certainly had all the signs of of a respecta ble age; but he was clean-limbed, had a very handsome neck and head, a powerful should er and a well turned quarter. But it was not his fine points that so much excited my ad miration ns, the intelligent manner with which he observed all my movements. He even seemed to be interested in what I said. He Inclined his head toward me, in order, ap parently, to hear better; and when I had done speaking he uttered a low winny, seem ingly in response. I looked at the other hor se* hastily. They were oidinary animals, without anything to distinguish them from thousands "of others. Hot so with Brutus. He certainly differed widely from the vulgar herd, and I was impatient to make a little tour through my park in his company. He allowed himself to be saddled, bridled and mounted like a horse that knows his business and we set out in the best possible humor with each other. Cheri’s catalogue had told only the truth. Bratus was exceedingly well broken; indeed, he was too well broken tor tcy purposes. He would give me a slow trot or gallop at call, hut would continually strike the ground with his fore feet in a peculiar manner; and, when I tried to make him raise his head, which he tarried very low, he would nearly tear my arm ofl'. Finally he took to prancing in grand style, like a show horse in an arena. “Humph 1” said I to myself; “I have here —or I am greatly in error—an old stager from the riding school of Saumur or St. Cyr He will have to be gott *n out of some of his fancy paces before he will do for the chase.” I was abont to return home, having suffi ciently satisfied my curiosity with regard to Bratus’s accomplishments, when I heard the report of a gun, discharged apparently within twenty yards of me. It was one of my keep ers shooting a hare, and who subsequently re ceived a handsome present for the shot from ojj mic. I was at the moment exactly in the center of an open space formed by the junction of six long, shaded alleys. When Brutus heard the report of the gun he stopped short, plant ed his feet firmly in the sand, pricked up his ears and raised his head high in the air. I was surprised to see him so disturbed by the report of firearms. I would bare supposed that, after the liberal education he had re ceived in his youth, no amount of firing would have even excited his curiosity. I touched his flanks with my heels, in order to urge him forward, but Bratus refused to budge. I tried to turn him to the right, to the left; not a foot would he move. He stood like a statue; and, nevertheless,—you need not laugh, for, be assured, what I am telling vou is strictly true—at every effort I made to induce him to go on he would turn his head and glance at me with an expression of impa tience and surprise; then he would relapse in to his statue-like immobility. There was clearly some misunderstanding between us, for I read very distinctly iu his glames that he would say: “I, the horse. . ut do my duty, and you, the cavalier, do not yours.” 1 was more puzzled than angered. “What manner of beast is this that I have bought of Cheri ?” said I to myself. “Ami why does he look it me in this queer way?” I was on the point of having recourse to ex treme measures—that is, to administer a shower of well-laid blows with my riding whip—when we heard auother shot—Brutus and I—at which he made one bound, and on ly one. All my endeavors to in luce him to go on were fruitless. He planted his feet anew in the sand, and more firmly, If possi ble, than at first. I began to gel 'out of pa tience, and as a consequence, to ply ny whip. Bnt Brutus also lo9t patience, and instead of submitting tamely to the puuisbinent I inflic ted. be reared, and pitched, and kicked in the most turiousmanner imaginable But while the battle was at its height, and I was deal ing him heavy blows v ith the loaded ham le of my whip, he found time to give me a look, now and then, full, not only of indignation, but of surprise. It was plaiu that, while I demanded of the horse what he refused, he expected something from me that I d'd not do. And how, think you, did this end? To my shame—my great shame. I was igno miniously unhorsed—thrown 1 Brutus, it seemed, came to the conclusion that nothing was to be effected by violence, and that he must change his tactics. After a moment's wuicu wuotcii/rtijuv a iuuuicih ui ic flection, he stood straight up in the air, not on his hind, hut on his fore fee';, and that, too, with as much calmness and address as a clown walks on h’s hands. Of course I slid down over his head intothe sand, which, for tunately, was tolerably deep. I tried to rise, but one of my legs refused to do me service; I uttered a cry of pain, and fell forward flat into the sand. I had ruptured one of the smaller tendons of my right leg, which, although not a very serioii! matter, caused me great pain whenever I at tempted to stir. Nevertheless, I succeeded in turning over and sitting up, but at tin moment when I began to rub my eyes, which were fhil of sand, and to wonder wliat had become of my rascally dapple gray, I saw a horse's foot descend on my head; then the fo*t was placed gently against niy breast and I was sti etched again on the sand—this time on my back. I was now, and very naturally too, I think, exceedingly frightened, and, moreover, I felt -hat it would be useless to make any funner nil.- . I therefore remained quietly on my “Jt*’myself once more what manner was tllat I had bought from r‘’ a.t, v1® 8*me time I closed my eves Rift instead1 exPectcd to be killed. But, iustead of receivng my coup de grace, Jan^dandy*tethed * stranSc stamping in the sand, and at the same time aquantityof dirt and gravel-stones struck me in the face 1 opened my eyes, and lo! there was Brutus, using all four feet with wonderful address endeavoring to cover me up in the sand He was doing his best, the dear fellow and every now and then he w.uld pause to ser what progress he was making; then he woulc raise his nead, give expression to his self-sat lsfaction in a low whinny, and resume hii work. This continued four or five minutes when, doubtless thinking me sufficiently cov ered, he approached respectfully and knelt— got down on both knees, and seemed actnalli wnn‘;wteri,"e a Prayer-while I looked on it wonder and amazement. his beadrifehtP118 Brutus bowed began to t K me, and then some twenty times-roundPou‘d-r 'und until I began to be dizzy from watching him when I cried out: “Halt! halt!”He obeved but seemed embarrassed to know what h ,. j At this moment be notloeJ : should do next. faAt off when i was % so^unceremoniusly Into the send, and , dumped so eer^ me> At sight of it Brutus lay a few f reIieve(j 0f his embarassment. I jfeTmmediately went toward it, picked it ud with bis teeth and started off at a brisk gallop down one of the six alleys that I have mentioned. Brutus disappeared, and I remained alone. Never was a man more puzzled—confounded. What the strange conduct of the horse meant was more than I could divine. I shook off the sand that partially covered me and crawled od my hands to a little spot of grass at the corner of one of the alleys. Arrived there, I made tnyself as comfortable as pos sible, and then ciied out at the top of my voice, in the hope of making myself heard by some on-*. But I got no response. The park, at least the park where I was, seemed to be entirely deserved. There was only one thing to do—to wait until seme one came that way. 1 had been a full half hour in this unenvia ble position, when I espied Brutus t> long dis tance off, at the end of the alley by which he had disappeared, galloping toward me in a big cloud of dust. Little by little, as he came nearer, I discovered a pony chaise in the cloud; then, in the chaise, a woman, who was driving herself, and, behind the lady, a groom. A tew minutes after this welcome discov i erv, Brutus, covered with foam, stopped be ; fore me and let my hat fall at my feet, sa luting me with a sympathetic whinny, which seemed to say: “I went tor help, sir: and and here it is.” But I had no eyes for Bru tus, nor ears for his explanations. My sen ses were occupied with the ministering fairy, wiio sprang lightly troin her little carriage and hastened toward me. She, too, on her part, looked at me very inquiringly, and sud denly we cried out in one breath, respective ly: “Madame de Noriolis!” “Monsieur de La Roclie-Targe!” Now, I have an aunt—and for years be tween her and me there has been a contin ued battle. “Gel married!” shebas insisted. ‘■1 don t want to marry!” “Do you want a young girl? I have Mademoiselle A—, 'Mademoisellc B—, Mademoiselle C—, etc.” _“1 don’t want to marry!” “Bu you want a widow ? X have Madame D—, Madame E—, Madame F—, and so on.” Madame de Noriolis always figured among the first of my aunt's widows, and X noticed that she never failed to dwell at ength on all the advantages she saw in this union. It was not necessary for her to tell me that Madame de Noriolis was pretty—any one could see that without prompting—or that she was rich. She choose, rather, to remind tnc, ever and again, that the late Monsieur de Noriolis was a fool, who was never so nappy as wnen ne nau sueceeueu in mai.iug his wife exceedingly miserable, and that consequently nothing would be easier than for her second husband to make himself adored. Then, after a leugthy eulogy of Madame de Noriolis’s virtues, graces and merits, my aunt, who was very adroit, and knew my vulnerable points, would take fro n her sec retary a map of the neighborhood and spread it out on the table. The map was very exact and complete, and had been bought for the sole purpose o convincing me that, if I had any sense at all, I would marry Madame de Noriolis. The chateaux of Noriolis and La Roche-Targe figured on the map, aDd were hardly five leagues apart. My aunt, having artfully drawn a red line around the two do mains, would oblige me to look at it say ing: “Two thousand one hundred acres, good measure, and not a single division hedge if, Noriolis were united to La Roche-Targe! Eh, isn't that sufficient to persuade my hunts man nephew ?” The temptation was so great that I could only turn away and take refuge in my usual refrain: “I don’t want to marry.’’ But I felt tha I was it danger, neverthe less, really in danger; and whenever I met Madame de Noriolis, I always saw her encir cled by my aunt’s red line,like an anreola,and I could not help saying to myself: “Exceedingly pretty—there’s no denying it —and clever and sensible, too,—two thous and one hundred acres without a division I hedge! Ily, Monsieur de La Roche-Targe— fly, since you don’t want to marry 1” And fly I would, and always did;but how could 1 fly this time? There I was, stretch ed out on the grass, covered with sand, my hair in disorder, my clothes torn, and one leg that refused to do me service; and now there stood Madame de Noriolis before me, dashing and fair, the red Hue wound all around her as usual, and asking in her most seductive tones: “Mon Dieu! is it you, Monsieur de La Roche-Targe? What are you doing here? What has h ppened to you?” I frankly confessed that I had been igno miniously thrown. “You are not hurt, I hope ?” “No; not seriously, at all events. I have straiued my right leg a little, but it is not seri ous, I am sure.” “And what horse acted so badly—not this one, certiinly ?” pointing to Brutus, who was ijuieuj uiuwsiug near at nano. “Yes, that one; he is the culprit.” “What I this uoble fellow ? Well, he has fully made amends, I assure you; but I will tell yin all about that by and' by. We must first think about getting you home.” “I cannot take a step. ’ “Oh, I will drive you home at the risk of compromising you.” And she called Bob, the groom, who took me by one arm, while sue took me by the other and helped me into her chaise. Two minutes mors and we were ra the road to La Hoc e-Targe. We were alone in the chaise, Bob having taken charge of Brutus, who had shown no unwillingness to be. caught. “Make your elf comfortable and keep your leg as straight as you can,” said Madame de Noliolis. “I will drive you as gently as pas sible.” In fact, she said a great many little amia : ble, womanly things that I found it very ! pleasant to listen to. Then, when she «aw I me in a comfortable position, sbe asked me to 1 tell her bow I came to be thrown, saying that 1 afterward sbe would tell me bow she chanced to c ’me to my aid. 1 began my narrative to which she li tened attentively until I commenced to describe Brutus efforts to throw me, after the two shots, when she cried, laughing In her silver est tones: j “Oh, I see it all! I see it all! You have , bought the trumpeter's hoise!” | “The trumpeter’s horse ?” j. “Why, yes; and that explains the whole ■ mystery. Have you not seen, many a time, at the irque de I’Imp ratrice, the feats of the horse of the trumpeter? A chasseur iVAfrique enters the arena on a large, gray horse; he Arabs follow and shoot at the chasseur, who is wounded and falls—and, as you aid not fall, the horse, indignant at this neglect of duty, threw you off. Aud what did he do when you were on the ground?” I told her of the effort he made to give mo a decent burial. “Tile trumpeter's horse!” she continued— “toujaurs the trumpeter's horse! He -ees that h s master is wounded; the Arabs may coma an i despatch him. So. what does he do? He buries him. And what did he dc then ? Started off on a gallop, did the not?” “Yes, carrying my hat—” “Instead of the colors, to prevent their fall ing into the hands of the enemy. There be ing no flag, he took what he could find. And where does he go?’’ i “To find the vivandiere.” I “Precisely. He goes to find the vivandiere; and the vivandiere, t --day, if you please, am I, the Coun.ess of Norioks. > £e entered my „„*a — t__ _ _r j-—- - O r* »» VU IUV OKI puv ting on my glove preparatory to driving out. The stable boys, seeing a horse approach, ; saddled and bridled, a hat in his mouth, and I without a rider, tried to catch him; but he ! avoids them, and, coming straight to the steps, he falls on his knees before me. The j men try again to catch him, but he springs i to his feet and starts off on a gallop. At the gate he stops, looks hack, and calls me—” “Calls you?” “Yes, I assure you, c Us me. I cry out to the men to let him go, jump into my chaise i and follow him over roads not originally in tended for carriages; but no matter—I arrive, and I find you.” i Just as Madame de Noriolis had finished : her narrative, the chaise received a fearful ■ shock from the rear, and the next moment j wc saw Brutus's head towering proudly : above and behind us. He and Bob had been following close behind, whCD, seeing the groom's seat vacant, he had availed hirnsel of the opportunity thus offered to make : I further exhibition to his new master of his accomplishments. He had reared up ant placed his fore feet on the vacant seat: ant now, with Bob clinging for dear life to hi! mane and the pommel of the saddle, he wai , trotting along on his hrnd feat only, with al the nonchalence in the world. As for Madame de Noriolis, she was so ter rified that she dropped the reins and threw herself into my arms—dear, adorable Mad ame de Noriolis!—and rested her little head against my shoulder. With the left hand 1 caught h i the reins, and with the right ] supported Madame de Noriolis. My leg hurl ■; me most fearfully; still I bore it without a ' murmur, and continued to support my lovely burden. It w as thus that Madame de Noriolis made her first visit to La Roche-Targe. When she returned about midnight, some six weeks afterward, having during the day , become Madame de La Roche-Targe, she said to me: “What a strange thing life is, my dear! Nothing of ail this would have been but fer tile trumpeter's horse.” W OOD ! WOOD H1CI' ami SOFT WOOD for sale at No. 43 Lla cola st reet. Also Dry Edgings. WM.HUSE. MISCELLANEOUS.
