THE HISTOHY QF AN OPAL RING.
It was a soaking fl afternoon, with
a flitting March wind. It seemed as it
winter and sjiriiiR luid united all their
must disatfieealilo qualities. The s!;v
was covered with one continuous guiy
cloud, the streets were muddy, the rain
dripped from the doorways and the
ovcr-hantfiiu cornices of' the shop
fronts, making jmwIs in the inequaliti s
of the Hags. The policemen looked
drenched notwithstanding their water
proof capes, and from each uiut'itlla
carried hy the few pedestrians wlmm
necessity compelled to he abroad ran
Hinall cascades. It was a steady, deter
mined rain, which might to all appear
ance continue for a week without stop
ping. A young lady turned at the comer of
a street, and held up her linger as she
saw an omnihus approaching. Tim
driver observed the signal and drew up.
There was just room for one. The
young lady took the vacant seat next
the door, ami the omnihus rattled on.
She was a slight, fair girl of al t
two-aiid-tweiity years of age, with soft,
hazel eyes and light brown hair. There
was nothing very striking about her
face; her complexion was pale, and her
features, though delicate, were not siif
liriently regular to he called handsome.
There was a downward curve about
the lips, and ft slight contraction about
the well-developed brow, which betok
ened sadness, or perhaps weariness, and
her head drooped slightly, as a llower
does when the dew is heavy upon it.
She was plainly dreaded in a dark blue
serge ami black hat. and had wrapped
about her a large gray woolen shaw l
with a heavy fringe
She glanced listlessly at her fellow-
passengers, her eyes resting at la.st up
on the person who sat opposite to ln-r.
lie was an undersized man, with a
swarthy complexion, am) darkliairthat
twisted itself into little enrks'-rew ring
lets; his nose was narrow and aipii
line, his thin and w ide lips were never
still for an instant, his eyes were small
and black, and placed too' near together.
ll had neither beard nor moustache,
though lie could scarcely be called clean
shaved, as the black stubble on his l'jeo
appeared of several days' growth, lie)
Wore a brown great-coat with a fur col
lar, but the fur was considerably rub
bed about the neck, and one of the but
tons of the coat hung loose. His black
gloves were out at the lingers, and his
hat, too, had seen better days, lie pre
sented altogether a ".sccdv" appearance,
but affected to carry it oil jauntily.
The young ladv, much given to spec
ulation as to the character of tlne.e
w hom chance threw in her w ay, set him
down as an adventurer, not over-scrup-uloiis
probably, mid began to wonder
what e::: ' i' he was then bent upon
moralizing at the same time upon the
little benefit such pie appear to de
rive from their schemes, winch must
often cost them nunc time and labor
than earning money in an honest wav.
Presently one of the little man s
hands dived into a sidt -pocket, and
drew out a pocket-book ; then it dived
again tor a pencil: and this proving to
be without a point, he brought out a
knife to cut it, lirsl pulling off his
gloves. The Voling lady then noticed
that he wore w hat appeared to he a v ery
valuable anliipie ung upon the littlo
linger of hi not over-clean blow n hand.
The central stone of the ring was a
splendid opal, several other small gems
being set round it. It was a remark
able ring o,e which, having been unco
seen, could easily be ncogiiizid again.
The little man, alter looking over his
pocket-hook, took out a paper, and
made a memorandum: and then, glanc
ing through the door-w imlow of tlm
omnibus, he hcg;m hast ily to put up his
book. While cla ping it, his umbrella,
which he had held between his knee-,
fell foiward against the vming lady's
"Pardon." he said, in a foreign ac
cent, rtretching out his hand for the
Cut it had caic'ht iu the heavy fringe
of the shawl. The young lad was go
ing to extricate it, but the man was too
quick for her los lingers must have
been accustomed to nimble work, lie
hailed the conductor, and, snatching up
Lis gloves, got out. The voung ladv
bad the curiosity to look after him. to
Bee where he was going. He did imt
put up his umbrella but ran jui kl v
fccross the street, and rang the bell at
the piivate door of a huge i hina hiu!
fhtss shop. She did not diseovu'
whither he was admitted, for theotnni
bus rolled on and .she lost si;;ht of him.
It grew rapidly dark: the rain : n,i
down as fast as ever as the o,nil M
popped at its d'stinaliun ncl Hu;
young lady dcseendi d. she had then a
walk of about ten miii'ires. She hui
ried along, IIih wind blowing iu gu,ti
which made it diilicull for Ik r to slieiti ,'
heiM'll' under her umbrella. AM'T n n
linu.ngfora hundred yards aim:;' ll.c
mad. she tinned down' a narrow Ian.'
leading to a mews. A !iii!e wav further
on a door was let Into a wall. Here she
stopped, nnd. draw ing out a latch-l os,
opened the door, and crossed a sm i'l
paved courtyard. Prom this iinollnr
door, opening ssitli a hJch. led to a pas
sage, on one hide of which was a Hldi
en, nt the end a staircase, and opposilo
the kitchen another tloor. tluoiih
Which the young lady entered.
He;e the scene suddenly chaned. A
pleasant home-picture presented itseit,
Ionniiig a cold last to the wet. glomus'
evening out of doors. A cheerful lire
blazed iu the grate, Cj ini.ou curtaiin
were drawn across the one window, and
a lamp on the table dimly showed some
Hue engravings on the walls, and more
vividly the damask table-cloth and the
tray with its pretty china-while the
kettle Dinging on the (ire, a loaf on a
wooden platter, a cold ham, and a glass
Plate of preserve beside the butter-dish
betokened preparations for needful re
freshment. llefore the tea-tray sat a fair, comely
nine of about live-and-foitv. her cheeks
Mill blooming, her hair glo'ssv and lux
uriant; and on a stool before the lire
younger lady hud placed herself, olio
Lot 1ar leinoved from girlhood.
" Vou arc late, Pert ha." said the fair
matron, as the ncw-coincr entered.
"Vr . mamma-late and wet and
tiled." Pert hu returned. ' will just
go and take oil my things, and then I
will tell you what 1 have been doing."
"Make haste." said her mythiT -"we

JJcrtha turned to leave the room.

A cry of surm ise, almost of ahum,
escaped her. There, hanging to the
fringe, was tho opal ring, she hud ob
served on tho linger of her opposite
neighbor in the omnibus.
She hastily disengaged it; it was in
truth the same that had attracted her
attention on the hand of her fellow
passenger, "Oh, mamma, what is to be doney"
he cried, feeling for the moment as if
6he ought instantly to start oil in the
rain again to tind the owner, "A man
who sat opposite to ine in the, omnibus
bad this ring on I particularly noticed
it. His umbrella fell against 'my knee
just befoie he got out, and in taking it
up the ring must have caught. What
had I better do?"
"You needn't look so alarmed about
it." said the young lady who had been
sitting before the lire, rising and going
toward her sister to look at the ring;
"you won't be accused of having stolen
it', I dare say."
The elder lady also rose it was mid
a strange incident -tnute exciting.
"Let me look nt it," she said; "and

I'.ertha still hesitated for a few mo

"I wailed some time at Mrs. Peau

a little." said Perlha. giving t tit ring to
her mother, w ho laid out her hand for

added, running off. "I'lcase mf'ke tho

she was very beautiful. Her features
were classical in their regularity; her
hazel eyes were fringed with long eye
lashes, w hich, like her tint !v-penciled
eve-brows, were several shades darker
than her golden hair, ller skin was
wax-like in its delicacy, relieved by the
rich carnation of the cheeks and lips.
Her figure, of rather above the middle
height was slight, though well rounded,
and her movements displayed an indo
lent grace which harmonized w.lh tho
calm, unemotional expression of the
lo ely face.
"It" is certainly a valuable ring," ob
served Mrs. Haftun as Perthatook her
seat at the table.
"I w ish it were mine." said Madelina,
or Lena, as she was always call 'd; and
again she placed the jewel on her lin
ger, looking admiringly at the fair hand
"Put it isn't yours," opposed Pn'itha.
"To-rnoriow as" soon as 1 leice Mrs.
Paget s. I will goto the house I saw the
man stop at. and make enquiries. How
glad I am I happened to notice."

"I think thevp gems must lie intend

must be. because they are so curiously

"How should' you know that, lier

"Ofcmiisel don't know, mamma."

'lea being finished. Mrs. Daltoii put
away the sugar and preserve in the
heavj. old -fashioned sideboard, and
rang for the servant to clear away.
Peiiha went to her work-box. and, tak
ing out a small piece of silver-paper,
she v, lapped i he ring ill it, and placed it
Ul In I pi.l.-.e,
"Stay tl.ne till to-morrow, when I
liopevour owner will be found," she
said, and then she brought out her

iu harmony to correct for her pupils.
Lena alsi'i lose for her work. As she
did so it might be seen that she had a
trailing skut of dark blue silk under
her well -lining black velvet tunic. As
Sara look away the white doth. Lenn
placed on the crimson table-cover a
dainty little work-basket containing
some point-lace w ork similar to the col
lar and culls she bad on,
"I wish you would make room for mo
on that side of the table. Lena I am so
cold." Perlha said, with a shiver, as
she stoo l with the desk in her hand.
"I hiu cold, too," Lena returned, as
she edged away a little.
"Have you been out to-day?" Pd'tha
asked, us nh seated herself ill the space
left for her.
"Out! No. 1 should think not, on
tnich a wet day as it has been," was tho
"It was no wetter for you than for

"You forget the dilTereiice, Pcrtha,"
put in Mrs. Daltoii. as she took up tho
magazine she had been reading while
wailing lea. "You know I could not
allow Lena to go out by herself-and I
Could not go out in the'uet."
Pcrtha understood what her mother
meant by "the tliffercnee;" Jna was
pertha's senior by sixteen months, and
she could not recollect the time when it
had not been impressed upon her that
Lena was a beauty, while sho had noth
ing" to boasi of in the way of good
looks. .Sometimes, in these latter day",
llerlha wondered. If her father bad
lived, and they had been a little better
olT. she being thus released from the
lireesvil v of working so hard, whether
she might not have been brighter and
fairer. Surely it was no wonder If her
checks were si unci lines pale ami her
eyes heavy; and it was hard to be found
fault with for want of vivacity when
she often felt So weary.
I'.crlhii, however, hoth by tempera
lueiit an! education, y,m inclined to
Make the best of things. It wan only
w hen she felt over-tired and depressed
that her ease wuiWd' aj thuu it
occurred to her that her elder sister
might share her labors. In tho general
way she was content. She enjoyed her
pleasant home when she returned to it
after her day's work, and though their
acquaintance was not largo they had a
a few agreeable friends in whose society
she was happy. Then there were al
ways holidays to look forward to. No,
Pert ha Palton was not unhappy; she
had the pleasant consciousness or duty
fulfilled, and the ennui that Lena often
complained of was to her unknown.
She was too Imaginative not to suffer
from occasional lits of depression; but
she shook them off courageously, and
went on her way in full contldence that
the path which seemed marked out for
h. r w as so ordered by Providence, and
must consequently he the light ona for
her to pursue.
On three days in the week liertha
gave lessons in music and singing at a
school, ami these occupied nearly the
day; on the intervening days she had
other lessons. Put there were inter
vals between, and on the morning after
the discovery of the ring she took ad
vantage of one of these intervals, and
set olf to find the house she had seen
the man stop at on the evening before.
She had no diiliculty in recognizing
the china and glass shop, and thinking
her best plan would be to make inquiry
theie first, she went in. A young man
came lot ward, and she explained her
c i rand, w nhout however specifying the
It was as she had been inclined to
su-pect - the upper part of tho bouse
did lint belong to the. owners of the
simp, but was let off in apartments.
Tin y had only one occupant at present
a 'ladv lately come from abroad. If
the mail rang at the private door, he
had most likely called to see that lady,
the shopman said, lie advised Hertha
to ring and ask for Mrs. Lemoiit.
Accoidmglv Perlha went to the pri
vate door ami rang. It was opened by
a stout elderly man-servant, who, on
learning her errand, ushered her up
stairs. He showed her into t lie drawing-room,
placed a chair for her, and
said he would te his mistress.
Mrs. Lemoiit will not know my
name." said Perlha, ns she gave tho
man ie-r card: "hut please say I will
in-; del tin her many minutes."
peiina had to wait a while, during
which time she had leisure to take a
Hirvey ot the room. It was furnished
much like the geiieiality of better-cla-S
lodgings; but there were articles scat
tered about that seemed toindicate lux
urious and cxpensiv e habits mi tho part
of tho present occupants. The centre
taiih' was graced with a bouquet of rare
hot house ilowers. Near them lay an
opera-glass set in inother-of-iiearl and
ormolu, an 1 a fan of )'acoek's feath
ers. An open woik-box displayed the
gold mount ing-- within, and an" Indian
cashmere was throw n negligently over
the arm of the couch. A small while
noodle, which sprung up with a shrill
li.i, k as I le-i ha entered, had been repos

Presently the d-mr opened, and a
richly and i.iliier show ily dressed lady

with considerable p isoiial attractions,
though the high color and abundant

And yet what relationship could exist,
she asked herself, between this han-l-Souie.
vvi ll-diessed woman and ti nt d -cidedly
shabby and din. potable-look-ing
lieitha re-seated herself at Mrs. Le
mont's invitation, and ng.rn brieilv re
lated that she had loond an article
that she had noticed in ti e possession
of a person in the omnibus, in v Inch
she had happened to he riding, and that
the person had alighted and rung at.
Mrs. Lean uit's door. Again she did
riot mention the article f I; she felt
a disti ust of the woman in whose pies
ence, she found herself, she i disci ved
that at the mention of the man of whom
she gave a slight description. .Mrs. Le
moiit. changed color in spite of her
"U is a curious circumstance," she
said, "hut I think you must be mis

"Could he have called to see one of
the servants'. " liertha suggested.
It is not likely. We have only lust
come from abroad. My servants have
no acquaintances in Jiiidoii, I believe;
but to satisfy you, I will ask," said
She rang the bell. It was answered
by the same man who had admitted
"Lid any one call hereabout seven
o'clock last evening, Perkins?" Mrs.
Lemont asked; and Pcrtha fancied she
saw something like a signal of intelli
gence pass between mistress and man.
"No one at all. inarm," the man an
swered. "Is it possible that Pliza could have
gone to the door?" Mrs. Lemont pur
sued, "No mariu-jmpi):s,.;blo,"re)ilicd (be

The Oldest Bank No'fli
Hie oldest hank notes are the "llvin"
money, or "convenient money," first
issued in China, 'J7 11. 0. Originally
these notes were issued by the Treasury,
but experience, dictated a change to tho
banks under government inspection and
control. A writer in a provincial paper

A E' lnarkabh Snake.
There is a nui.it remarkable snake
bottled up at llellevillu. It is fully as
long us a man's arm, hut iu no part
thicker tluiu an orddnrv piece of twine.
It has evidently got a head but it is so
iniinitesimally small that It cannot be
distinguished from the rest of the body
witli tho naked eve. In fact so far as
can he seen without thu aid of a glass,
both ends are exactly alike. The color
is almost black, witli a light shading ou
the under side. Ii was piaoud in a glass
of water yesterday, and succeeded in
crawling over tlm rim and diopjiiug to
the floor, where it lay lor a long tune,
and when discovered w as nearly dead,
On being n tlm water again,
however, it Oceania quite lively. It was
captured in the lied llivcr, having t,.
come entangled in a lish line just at the
moment when the angler yanked a fish
from the murky ileptns. U is probably
one of the most curious specimens
ever seen in this country ami pains
should be taken lor iis preservation.
