A CHARMING PICKPOCKET.
Miss Illione Howell sits on the top step
of the back porch ot the Pebble house,
gazing out upon the river Dlue as the sky
above it, and almost as bright which
flows gently by at tho foot of the garden.
Everything looks bright and beautiful
this warm, pleasant, fragrant October day.
The garden walks, formed of many small
glittering stones, encircle tho beds of
autumn flowers and plots of feathery grass
like broad gray ribbons thickly town with
precious gems, oad the little summer and
bath houses, built of some dark wood, and
incrusted' with more brilliant pebbles,
gleam and glow through the trees at the
water's edge, as tho homes of the diamond
gnomes must gleam and glow in the heart
of the dark brown earth. Nor does the
sheen and glitter end with them, for the
Pebble house itself is decorated around
each window and door imbedded in
some mysterious manner iu the frames
with many colored stones, each one spark

But loveliest of all things that adorn this
wonderful October day lovelier than flash
ing river, gleaming sunshine-steeped peb
bles, flaming gladioles, and bee-loved four
o'-elocks is the lady, young and fair, with
gold-brown hair, large blue-gray eyes, pale
oval face, and sweet small mouth, leaning
back against one of the pillars of tho Peb
ble house porch, the red foliage of the Vir
ginia creeper that enrobes it drooping over
her beautiful head. There is a tender,
dreamy look iu her large eyes, and a soft
smile about her prettily curved lips, as she
sits there so motionless, gazing out upon the
river. One can sec at once that she is wan
dering in dream-land; but alas! she
is doomed to be rudely recalled to eartli
"Kleptoma'nia indeed !" says a loud girl
Vh voice near her, and Mjss Ada Warden, a
little brunctte-with magnificent black eyes
and heavy black eye-brow?, comes sudden
ly out on the porch, arm in arm with Iter
inseperable friend Linda Lees, whose eyes
are as blue as Ada's arc black, and whose
eye-brows are tho faintest shadow of those
belonging to her friend. "Why do they
never call it that when the the'
"Kleptomaniac," drawls Linda, sinking
into an easy chair, and clasping her pretty
hands above her head with a generous
yawn that seems to indicate her weariness
ot the subject.
"Oh, thanks I' continues Ada, in the same
loud voice, swinging her broad-brimmed
hat carelessly to and fro "kleptomaniac to

steals a loaf of bread or something of that
"Don't look at me, Ada dear," Miss How
ell begs, in tones that would have delight
ed Sliakspeare himself; "I'm sure I don't
know," nnd she yawns too, but such a cuh -ning
little yawn, as though a red rose-bud
had suddenly made up its mind to unfold
into the smallest of red roses.
"Well, upon my word," exclaims Ada,
indignantly, looking from ono of her
friends to the other, "you both appear to be
in remarkable spiritB this afternoon. I
can't stand it. I must run away in search
of some ono less boisterous, No, I won't
either, for here comes Herbert Moorr;, my
cousin of cousins, attended, prince of good
fellows as ho is, by slaves bearing ieed
sherbets and cakes of dew and honey
that is, lemonadu and inacroons. Girls,
ain't you glad I've got such a duck of a
cousin, and that I coaxed him to upend his
vacation here instead of Newport? And
now for his opinion on the subject."
"What subject?" asks Herbert Moore.
And then, without waiting for an answer,
ho turns to tho lovely face inwreathed wilh
tho vine leaves, and says, "M ty I sit at
your feet, Miss Jlowell? I've been roaming,
I've been roaming, nnd I'm deu 15og par-
don awfully lired."
"Wouldn't yon rest better In a chair?"
and she leaned forward, with a bright wnilo
on her lips and in her eyes.
"Not at all, thank you," seating himself
a step or two below tho lady.
"Mm. Sherwood," buglna Ada, between
two bites of a macaroon, .
"Uh, that afl'air of the diamond bracelet
poor tiling 1" says the young man.
"What, do you believe in kleptomania?"
drawls Linda from her easy chair.
"That's tho way thoy explain It," Ada
goes on. "Sho lias been an innocent pick

her father at first, and then her husband,

"Laat winter, coming homo to my lodg

old chum, George Cuthbert, Ada"
Miss Warden, with a toss of her curly
head and a flush on her brown cheeks, com
mands, "Don't address yourself altogether
to me, sir. It isn't polite."
"Beg pardon," says Herbert, mischiev
ously, "but, for some reason or other, I
always think of you when I think of

any two women?" Ho pauses, but his aud

ceeds with his story.
"I naturally felt very lonely after his de
parture, and being unable to read, and in
no humor to make calls, I determined to
go to some place of amusement. It was
a cold night, and as Jack Frost and I never
had been on very friendly terms, in order
to avoid a protracted struggle with him, I
selected the nearest theatre, regardless of
what the'performance was to be. It chanc

"Miss Lees, I must repeat the remark I
made to my cousin a moment ago. No

Suffice it to say she was lovely. The rur

and from that instant her attention was riv

"No matter, and that she did not wear "
"What?" from Linda.
"Either a bunch of violets or a Jacques
rose. But I was not so well pleased to find

proximity, although she did accept a pro

iu my direction, while the yonng lady on
the other side peeped coquettishly at me."
"You conceited fellow!'' exclaims his

"Neither. Where there is some very pa

gan to weep, and reaching her little gray
kidded hand down by her side, took from
the pocket of my coat my handkerchief

brought me from Paris, Ada."
"Not really? And what did you do?"
"Nothing. Yes I did; I laughed silently
amt long, till the flirt ot the fan and the
chocolate caramel said to me, reproachfully,
'Why d.) you laugh! It isn,t funny.' And
I watched her at llio cud of the play walk

to her assistance : "In our back breadths."

"I did. And she immediately possessed
herself, iu just ns guileless a manner as she
possessed herself ot my handkerchief, ot
something belonging to rao, from my point
of view infinitely more valuable."
"Thcro's George, and we promised to go
sailing with him. Come, Linda," shouts
Ada, grasping her lazy friend by the arm ;
and as tbey ran down tho steps she shouts
back at her cousin, "If there's any more tell
us this cvoning, Herbert."
"Is thcro any more, Miss Howell?" asks
Mr. Moore, rising, and standing face to
face with the blushing girl.
"Should there bo more?" she asks in re
turn. "Yes. 'And she gave him her heart in
place of his own, nnd promised to be his
true and faithful wife.' Do you approve of
that ending for my story?"
"That would be a happy conclusion, I'm
sure," laughs Illione. "I can think ot no
better one, Herbert."
