MAUD ST. LISLE.
- It was a quiet place, tho little village
of Mavton, nestled down between two
large hills, with its white cottages and
neatly gravelled walks. The most pre
tentious house (here whs Judge Gray's

velvety lawn in front, dotted with ever-

Tho house was, at tho time, our story

the past winter been tho reiguing met

merry laugh ran? through the broad
halls, and her light step was heard trip
ping over the verandah.
Judge Gr,y whs a pleasant social
man, free from all affectation or osten
tation. True merit was worth more to
him than mere worldly possessions, and
when Percy llalford lirst came to May
ton and opened his little law-oft'tco,

more than cordial invitation to visit his
But Percy Halford was proud, poor,
and gifted. Ho had his way to make in
the world, and ho could not afford to
indulge in the pictures of society tin
til he had earned for himself a position
among men. and he had politely, but
decidedly, refused all invitations to
mingle in the society of the village.
When Maud Si. Li.-.lc first came to
Mavton. she returned from a visit with
cer cousin one dav, ami made many en-
juiries concerning Percy llalford,

Percy llalford to partake of the hospi
talities of his house.
For weeks Percv had seen tlin hrvrht.

slio ilrni-( or riwio t'uuugti me tliage,
and he could not help admiring the
weii-iurneu jauniess ngure, Uio well
poi.sed head, and the taste the exqui
site taste sho always displayed in
dress; nnd more than once he felt in
clined to break his resolution and ac
cept the invitation so cordially extend
ed him by Judge Gray to call.
For what man could, day after day,
meet such a lovely woman as Maud St.
Lis'e, and not desire to make her ac
quaintance? It was a pleasant afternoon in Juno,
Percy had turned the key in his olliee
door, and sauntered off toward the
green old woods for a M roll, lie was
leisurely returning towards tho villago
when a lady and gentleman on horse
back roilo swiftly past him. 'Twas
Maud St. Lisle and her cousin Harry.
He gazed admiringly upon the grace-fnlly-poiscd
ligure of Maud, until a
turn in the road hid her from view, and
then he murmured:
"Beautiful, indeed, but no doubt as
vain and heartless as fair-the tirido
and pet of fashion's balls, the i.iol of
brainless foppish men, the envy of gay
butterfly-women of the world. No, no,
Percy Halford. do not allow yourself to
be caught in such a net."
Just then the sun's rays fell upon
something in the road which glistened
with a thousand rays. Ho stooped and
picked from the dust a small delicately
wrought diamond ring, a simple band
of gold, with a solitary gem in the set
ting. As he gazed upon the costly
bauble he said to himself:
"It niut belong to Miss Lisle, as sho
is the onlv one in Maytou who wears
Riich costly gems."
lie tnrnedit over carefully and saw
engraved upon tho inside, "To Maud,
from Clare, ' which eon firmed his sup
poiition as to the ownership.
"1 will send it over," ho said, as he
continued his homeward walk, and
mut-ed thoughtfully as he walked.
After Percy llalford finished his sup
per, he repaired to his room, and as
usual, donned his dressing-gown and
slippers, preparatory to spending tho
evening with his books.
In vain he endeavored to confine his
attention to the. task before him, in vain
ho endeavored to think of something
besides the bright, eves and graceful
form of Maud St. Lisle,
At length he threw his book from
him, impatiently exclaiming:
"I verily believe I am bewitched, and
by a ball-room belle, too; but 1 will
soon dispel this delusion. I will return
the ring this evening nivself,"
To think with Percy llalford was to
act; and carefully making his toilet, ho
was soon ushered into Judge Gray's
luxuriously furnished parlors, to await
the appearance of tho lady ho had call
ed to see.
Maud St. Lisle was surprised and
pleased when tho servant announced
that Mr: Halford was In tho parlor, and
wished to see her. As sho entered tho
parlor Percy arose.
"Mr. llalford, I am plonsod to soo
you. My undo has repeatedly Invited
you to call, I believe, and we have al
most despaired of seeing you. Pray bo
"Thank you," said Percy, still stand
ing. "I culled, Miss St. Lisle, to return
to you a treasure you lost this afternoon,
ana which I wns fortunate enough to
tlnd;" aud he banded her Uu tintf.
Tears filled Maud St. Lislo's eyes as
sho took tho ring from his hand.
"Mr. Halford. I cannot tell you how
glad I am to recover this little bauble.
It was a gift from tho aunt after whom
I was uanied-a dying gift, which I
have ever valued highly.
"When I discovered tho loss, I sent
Harry back to inint for it; but ho re
turned unsuccessful, and you have

room, but when he entered his cham

"And the found ring bereft me of all

Verily, requited love can brighten all

A Hard Grind.
A hand-organ man was making his
way up Adams avenue yesterday, when
a boy met him. nnd nlrml.
"How many tunes do you play?"
"Zixteen shunes nieo, swectshunes,"
replied tho man.
"My father is fond of music, but he is
a little deaf," continued the bov.
"O, dat makes no defference I make
a him hear."
The boy led the way un street to
where a plaster liust of Sir Isaac New
ton had been arranged in a bay-window
to look like a living man, and the Ital
ian spit oi" his hand and began on the
crank. lie ground out all the tunes in

and ground back up tho scale till he got

Italian leaned the orgau on tho fence
and loudly sang:

When I am fur a-w-a-v?" '
Tho seven other tunes were rattled off
at a lively pace, while the man coughod,
whistled, kicked on the feuco and en
couraged a dog fight, in order to attract
the deaf man's attention.
"Sing louder play harder!" called
the boy, from the next corner.
