BERTHA BJHTOIi'S TRIUMPH,
THE HISTORY QF AM OPAL RING.
"When I would lav down my life to
make you happy!" the young man ex
liertha had been leaning apalnst the
piano, her head upon her hand; she
looked up, startled, aa he S'-oke.
'lo y"oif not believe rrte.,u he cried,
his voice full of the tenderness that
filled his heart. "You may need a pro
tactor: t;ike me for your protector

o dearly! There Is no happiness in the
world but near von."
"You love me!"said IJertha.in aston
ishment, and looking at the .bright,
handsome face before her, as if to as
sure herself that nlie had heard aright.
"Oh, I am so sorry!"
"Sorry!" exclaimed Douglas, nis
cheeks blanching, as a chill of disap
pointment crept over him. "Is it that
you cannot like me a little then, Ber
tha?" "Oh, yes, I like you very much in
deed," admitted Bertha, hurriedly,
grieved at the pain she had given, "only
not in that way not in the way you
"Have I been too precipitate too
premature?" asked Douglas. "Would
you have given me a different answer if
I had waited longer? My dear, I love
you so fondly. Is there no hope for

"I am so grieved," she said, tears
quivering on ner eyelashes. "But time
would make no difference. Perhaps I
ought to have known; but I never
thought of this. I hoped we were
"Friends!" Douglas repeated, his
voice trembling with agitation. "Did
you think I could be with you so much,
and know you so well, and not love you
with more than friendship? Give me
time let me try to win; or perhaps I
have no right to ask," he continued,
turning verv pale as he watched her
flushed cheelcs and quivering lips. "Is
there some one else who " He did
not finish his sentence; he was alarmed
bv a choking sob from Bertha, who
buried her face in her hands, and burst
into an agony of tears.
"Forgive me oh, forgive met" Doug
las cried. "I am behaving like a selilsh
brute. I would give my heart's best
blood to save you a moment's grief, and
1 am causing you onYy MtBerin." He
shaded his face with his hand tears
were standing in his honest blue eyes,
and he did not wish her to see how
much he was pained. "I had built a
beautiful little castle." he resumed, as
soon as he could steady his voice, but
it has vanished into air." He sighed
deeply, and then went on "I will not
vex you. I begin to see now how I
have been mistaken."
"Indeed indeed it is not that I do
not esteem von," Bertha said, in the
midst of her tears, as she held out her
hand; "but " She stopped, the burn
ing color rushing to cheeks and brow.
"Do not say a word more." Douglas
requested, pressing the hand she had
given him in both of his. "I ought to
have known I have myself to blame.
I do not prcU-nd to say that I don't feel
this bitterly now, for I had hoped "
He broke down again for a while, and
then continuedTray do not make
yourself unlianpv about me. If you will
not have nie lor' a husband, you shall
have nie for a brother. Some day or
other I shall come back, when 1 can be
satisfied with Uio regard you can give
me. Only trust nie. Do not look cold
ly upon me I could not bear that. I
will not presume again."
"I do trust you in everything," said
Bertha, struggling to recover compos
ure. "If you could only read my heart
you would seo how thoroughly I trust
you. I am so grieved that I should
have been so blind, so self-absorbed. I
ought to have spared you this pain."
"Do not let that thought vex you,"
returned Douglas. "It is better that
we should quite understand each other
better for me, don't you see? I have
been but an idle, harum-scarum sort of
a fellow not half good enough for you,
I know only if you could have loved
nie Well, never mind," he broke
off, dashing his hand across his eyes
"I'm a better man for my love for you.
For worlds I wouldn't have missed
making your acquaintance, Bertha
you will let me call you so, will vou
not? I shall think more highly of all
humankind for your sweet sake. Heav
en bless you!"
He rose as he, said these words. Ber
tha still wept and trembled.
After one heavy, irrepressible sigh
one fervent hantl-clasp one lingering
look, he went away, a hero at that mo
ment, with a strong purpose at his

After Douglas left. Bertha rushed tip
to her own room, and, locking the door,
threw herself on her kuees by the bed,
burying her face. Her breast waj
heaving with sobs. She was grieved,
heart-stricken in more way than one.
She recognized now little tokens, straws
that showed which way the wind blew,
which ought to have opened her eyes as
to Douglas's feelings toward her. And
she liked him so much had sometimes
indulged the fancy that, if fate had
given her such a brother, it would have
teen an unspeakable Joy. Now she
had wounded him and driven him away
?nf;.of her ,WI,t anfl dearest friends.
"What will he think of me," she
moaned, "If he has guessed that I love
one who does not care for me? And yet
he is so good, so noble, so clever, how
can I help loving him?"
One comfort she had. If Douglas had
divined her feeling for his friend, he
would not betray her; St. Lawrence
would never know how she loved him.
he would not despise her for having
given him a regard he bad never Bought
she felt sure of that. As she became
more calm, she began to interrogate her
heart to ask herself if she could have

loved Douglas sufficiently to become
his wife, if she had never known St.
Lawrence; but she mentally answered
"No." The lively, heedless, indolent
young portrait-painter could never have
been the one she would have chosen for
her protector and companion through
life, affectionate, good-tempered, and
generous as she acknowledged him to
Her meditations led her back to the
summer months gone by. St. Lawrence
had surely cared for her then. Had not
her heart many times thrilled under
the speaking glance of his eves, at the
tender tones of his voice? Why had he
changed? What had she done What
had happened during the last few weeks
to dissipate the bright dream in which t
almost "unconsciously to herself, she
bad been living? If he had changed,
she could do nothing to bring him
back. If the brief sunlight had gone
out of her life, she could only submit,
and try to bear up bravely. She was
herself suffering what she had made
Douglas suffer. They would both get
over their sorrow in time. She had
often read and heard that time heals all
wounds, though it was hard to believe
It just then.
Bertha was too courageous, too high
spirited to vield tamely to despondency.
After a while she dried her tears and
bathed her face, and, going down-stairs
again, set herself to some work that had
to be completed for her sister. After
fixing and arranging and cutting out
for some time, she recovered her out
ward composure; but, her head still
aching, she laid aside patterns and
scissors, and went into the garden, her
usual place of resort in all troubles.
It was a lovely afternoon; there had
been showers during the day, which had
refreshed and cooled the" air. Soft
white clouds flitted across the blue of
the sky; the trees waved and rustled as
if they were things of life, and greeted
the breeze that swept through them.
Bertha had before now whispered her
secret grief to the roses, and taken the
lilies into her confidence. They seemed
to smile and beckon to her, as if they
would have said, "Come amongst us
and be consoled."
Finch, who had resumed his accus
tomed place, rose as his young mistress
came out, and put up his paws against
her, entreating notice.
"Poor old Pinch!'' she said, stooping
and laying her cheek- against the dog's
shining black head. "You liked him too.
But he doesn't care for us, Pinch he
never comes now."
With a sigh she could not suppress,
she turned into the side-walk and along
by the fruit-trees; and here Mrs. Daf
ton and Lena found her when they
returned. They came along. Mr. Fan
court had an engagement, and had been
obliged to leave them, they said.
Lena began to tell Bertha the result
of their visit to the jeweler's. She had
chosen the opal; it was not quite so
fine a one as the original perhaps, but
it was the best to be had. and Mr. Fan
court had given orders to have the ring
made after her drawing. He had
insisted upon making tier another
present before they left the shop,
and she had chosen a set of turquoises.
"I think, after all. blue is my color,"
she continued. "My bridesmaids shall
have white over pale blue silk, and forget-me-nots.
Don't you think that
would be pretty."
"Very pretty," Bertha replied, rather
absently, as they all weut together in
to the house.
"And, oh. Bertha, there is one thing
I must tell you," said Mrs. Dalton,
throwing off her bonnet, as her custom
wan. on reaching the drawing-room,
Lena taking it up and carrying it dit
with her own things. "Alter we had
been to the jeweler's, we drove through
the Park there is not much to be seen
there now, of course, as every one is
out of town: but the day was so fine, I
thought I should like a walk in Ken
sington Gardens. So we left the
brougham at the gate, and walked
down to the waters side, and there
whom should we see at a distance but
Mr. St. Lawrence! I pointed him out
to Mr. Fancourt. 'There's that clever
young artist, Mr. St. Lawrence, whom
vou have heard us speak of,' I said.
Vou never saw such a start as Mr.
Fancourt gave. He turned pale, and
pulled Iena, who was leaning on his
arm, another wav, quite roughly. Just
at first I thought he must have trodden
on a stone and hurt himself. Then I
saw him turn his head and follow Mr.
St. Lawrence with his eyes to see
which way he was going. Mr. St. Law
rence was walking slowly, and seemed
lost in thought. lie did not see us. I
said to Mr. Fancourt, 'Do you know
him?' And then he told me that he
recognized him as a man he had met
some years ago. but that ne was men
Tiassinor under a different name. He
said that I had better not have anything
to do with him. and that he hoped he
was not in the habit of coming to our
house, as he should very much object to
meet turn. i am sorry, -Mrs. uanon
went on to say, "I certainly liked Mr.
St. Lawrence. But there must De
something very much against him, you
Bee. It will be impossible for us to re
ceive him any longer if he turns out to
be so suspicious a character."
"I don't believe one word of it, mam
ma," Bertha exclaimed, the hot blood
mounting to her cheeks. "We have
never seen anything in Mr. St. Law
rence that should lead us to think oth
erwise than well of him; and, after all,
what do we know of Mr. Fancourt?"
"Mv dear!" cried Mrs. Dalton in con
sternation at Bertha's daring speech.
"Of course we know who he is; I do
not mean that," said Bertha. "But he
has been acknowledged as Lord Amn
ington's grandson only a few months,
and how do we know what he was be
fore? How do we know what his life
has been? It has always seemed to me
that he is not at all too fond of talking
"My dear Bertha, I am surprised at
you," Mrs. Dalton replied, angrily, tak
ing up a fan that lay beside her, and
fanning herself to cool her indignation.
"We know what Mr. Fancourt is; his
past life is nothing to us. I can't think
now you could be so indelicate as to al
lude to it. Of course, if ho had not
been Lord Alphington's grandson, his
proposal to marry liena would have
been out of tho question; but Mr. St.
Lawrence has no established position
it is quite another thing. One would
really think at times, Bertha, that you
hadn't common sense. You must see,
at any rate, that we cannot have any
one visiting here whom Mr. Fancourt
would not like to meet."
"I don't think Mr. St. Lawrence is
very likely to trouble you much, mam
ma," Bertha returned, a little bitterly.
"He has not been here for the last three
"Most likely then, as he must know
that Mr. Fancourt is often here, he is
afraid of meeting him afraid of some
exposure. Don't you see, Bertha, it's
quite plain It must be so? If you should
happen to meet him, I must insist upon
your being very cool in your manner to
mm; for my part, l shall certainly give
him to understand that we do not de
sire any further acquaintance with
"Mamma, I cannot promise," said
Bertha, flushing painfully. "I do not
believe anything against him. Mr.
"Well, my dear, you are quite right
to consider Mr. Douglas," allowed the
prudent mother; "and when you are in
a house of your own you can invite
whom you please. By-the-bye, my love,
don't you think it would be a very nice
plan it Mr. Douglas were to take this
house off my hands when Lena mar
ries?" she continued more cheerfully,
laying down her fan. "I am thinking
of going into 'apartments at the West
Knd, where I shull be uearer Magnus
Square. Mr. Douglas's income is not
very large. He probably wont want to
launch out at first. I should think such
a house as this might just suit him."
"I don't think Mr. Douglas has any
idea of taking a house at all, mamma.
Bertha stammered, in some confusion.
"Mr. Douglas is going away."
"t'oing away?' exclaimed Mrs. Dal
ton. growing very red in the face again.
"Going away without proiosing? I
have never heard of anything so dis
honorable, after all the attention he
has paid you. I am afraid it is your
own fault, Bertha; you have played
your cards badlv."
"1 have played no cards at all, mam
ma." said Bertha, greatly vexed. She
had no intention of revealing what had
taken place that afternoon neither
Douglas's declaration to herself nor his
warning against Fancourt. That she
was well aware would be utterly useless
until there was some basis to go upon.
"He can't go away so," decided Mrs.
Dalton, after a few minutes' thought.
"It's ridiculous. I shall write and ask
him to dinner."
"Pray do not, mamma," Bertha en
treated. "Mr. Douglas and I perfectly
understand each other, if that is what
you are thinking of. We shall never
he more to each other than good
"Well, I must say there never was a
mother treated as I am," Mrs. Dalton
lamented, drawing out her cambric
handkerchief. "Hero have I been plan
ning night and day for your comforta
ble settlement in life, and now you talk
about being nothing but friends! It's
really enough to drive one wild! I am
quite sure that with a little encourage
ment Mr. Douglas would have spoken;
and what better can you look for? It
isn't likely you can make a great match
like your sister. It won't do now, with
our new connections, for you to be a
teacher. What is to become of you I
don't know; and all might have been
settled so happily."
Mrs. Dalton melted into tears as she
contemplated the failure of part of her
scheme. Bertha stood pale and silent,
feeling rather guilty; but she had no
thought of giving way.
"Don't be anxious about my future,
mamma." she said at last. "I am sorry
I cannot act as you wish, but I need
not be a burden upon you. Sir Stephen
and Lady Langley, when we were at
their house in the spring, asked me to
go and live with them as their daugh
ter. I declined then, because I thought
vou could not spare me; but I am sure
thev want me to go. Sir Stephen said
he should speak to you about it this
Mrs. Dalton wiped her eyes her brow
"I would much rather have seen you
in a house of your own at once," she
said, with a sigh; '-but Sir Stephen and
Lady Langley move in the best society,
and "you may'have a chance with them,
perhaps, if you only put away your
sillv, romantic notions."
Bertha made no reply she was only
too glad to let the subject drop. In or
der to avoid any fresh discussion of
such topics, she'invited her mother's
attention to what she had been doing
for Lena that afternoon, and Mrs. Dai
ton, once more absorbed in the all-iih-Mirtant
subject of the troHxxtan, forgot
for the time being her disappointment
in Douglas and her adverse intentions
toward St. Lawrence.

Charity begins at home, and the
.supply iu somo homes is so extremely
limited that it never progresses be
yond the beginning and gives out
before it makes the circuit of tho
family circle. A man begins by being
charitable to himself. Ho starts out
under the impression that he is pos
sc.cd of an inexhaustible reserve of
charity, and spreads it over himself so
lavishly that his surprise is almost
Munning when his wife makes applica
tion for a modicum of the article for
herself, nnd linds himself incapable of
making the supply equal to the demand.
He then realizes that he had mistaken
.ti'llishness for charity. Of course ho
wouldn't like to admit that mistake
not even to his wife he is conscious of
it. all the same, and it is'nt at all con
soling to him to know that bus wife is
conscious of it too.
Charity is a virtue possessing a deal
of elasticity, and some people stretch it
to such un extent as to make it as trans
parent as a coal sieve and about asuse
tul to the subject to which it is applied
as the sieve would be for carrying
water. That isn't tho kind of charity
that covers a multitude of sins, although
it is the kind of charity generally dealt
in by those having a multitudo of sins
under (lie mistaken impression that it
affords them an impenetrable pall over
their sins and a white roho of right
eousness to dazzle the eyes of the world,
and even to fool St. reter himself, and
insure them an unchallenged passage
through the celestial gate.
A good, healthy, vigorous kind of
charily is not less valuable for its rarity
than its usefulness. The rarity of this
kind of charity doesn't lie so much in
the dilliciilty of procuring it as in the
dispensation of it. The man who is
reduced to such an extremity of inipe
cuniosity fa to be compelled to stand
around restaurant doors and derive his
diurnal sustenance rom the succulcncy
of cast-away tooth-picks, isn't too poor
to load himself from head to feet with
the very best kind of charity, if he'll
only take the trouble to realize that it
consists in a word kindly spoken.orthe
smallest act kindly performed, as well
as in munificent contributions to hos
pitals and the general run of public and
There is nothing so easily obtainable
as an inexhaustible supply of good
wholesome charity, becauso the uni
versal source of it is illimitable, and
every household can keep it in stock
by preparing a reservoir for it and
never closing the check-valve. And
being procured without money and
without price, it should be reciprocally
dispensed to one another on the same
liberal terms. And tho wonder is
that isn't. Green Day Sunday Ad-vnwx.

A few eveuings ago I had the pleas
ure of attending a genuine dancing
party of tho Latter-Day Saints (they
don't like to Imj called Mormons). This
was at a small town nestled away in
the Wasatch mountains, about 150
miles south of the metropolis of Utah.
The dance was held In what is called
tho ward meeting-house, a plain stone
building used for general public pur
poses. The hour for opening was 7 P. M.
I was there on time. What first attract
ed my attention on entering was that
the ladies and gentlemen sat separate
lythe men on the right aud tho ladies
on the loft. At tho end of the hall was
a raised platform, upon which sat the
orchestra, w hich consisted of a first and
second violin and organ. The nation
ality of those present was very distinct
and easily detected. The Scandinavian
element predominated, but there was a
sprinkling of English, Scotch, Irish,
Welsh, and Swiss, wdiile the Ohio
twang, and the Missourian's idee could
also bo heard. All had a happy and
contented look, there boing no attempt
at formality, but each appeared to feel
as if ho or she was at home with mem
bers of their own family.
When I arrived the (lancing had not
commenced, and there was quite a buzz
of conversation. I'reseutly tho floor
manager called out: "Please come to
order! Brother Brown, will you open?"
Immediately all were silent and every
head bowed in reverence. Brother
Brown responded by walking to the
platform and offering a brief but earn
est extemporaneous prayer, in which
he akcd the Lord to be with them dur
ing the time of their amusement, and
to Keep all harm and wrong-doing from
The floor manager then gave a num
ber to each man who wished to dance,
and when all had numbers given them,
he called out, "Numbers one to eight
take your partners for a cotillion!"
There was only space for two seta. Up
started the eiht numbers, and rushed
across the room, and secured partners.
There was no waiting for introductions,
and now they stood in readiness on the
floor, falling" into conversation with
their ladies. The music struck up, tho
caller shouted the figure and the danc
ers started oft as if their very life wan
The Danes were remarkably graceful
in their movements, and, of course,
there w as the usual quantum of verdant
youths who did not know what to do
with their legs. There were many
pretty, yes, handsome, faces amoug
the fair sex. All was neat and clean,
but no attempt was made to show in
dress, plain cotton and woolen fabrics
being the rule. Some few of the girls
made a faint attempt with simple rib
lions and laces. Many oi the men did
not appear to have made any special
evening toilet, with tho exception of
the liU-ral use of soap and water.

The Girl of the Period.
Under the present order of things,
should tho novelist go into the high
ways and resorts of the world to study
reality, he will find many a daughter
of the gods, divinely tall, and the
most divinely fair, who, when her lips
are opened, will dispel the charm of
her presence, and bring to mind the
old toads and snakes Ht every word;
who acknowledged no law of etiquette
hut her own whims; whose standard
of regard for others is her own con
venience; whose greatest virtue Is in
dift'eronee, and whose best charm ab
sence. It is true that at summer resorts
there are charming and lovely girls,
but their refined presence is complotely
overshadowed by the pushing, noisy
vulgarity of the roystering girl of the
period, the girl whose family Is often
excellent, whoso advantages, socially
and educationally, have been all that
position and wealth could command,
yet who remains to the end vulgar.
Hellish, and obtrusive.
A Spicy Suit
We shall shortly have in the courts A
Franco-Chinese trial, which promises
some of the spiciest developments. A
Chinaman, who had saved some money
while a waiter in a cafe, and arrayed
in tho most gorgeous Oriental cos
tumes, poised as a Celestial prince,
made tho acquaintance one day in June
of Mile. G at a concert in the
Champs Elvsces. Harasses! by her
creditors, who threatened to eject her
from her home, tho suppositious
Chineso prince was a perfect godsend.
They had dinner together, during which
the "prince" spoke of his immonse
wealth. To believe him ho owned half
of tho city of Shanghai. As he had for
gotten his pocket-book Mile. G had
to pay the bill. The next day, perceiving
her embarrassed position, he told her ho
would givo her a draft for 800,000
francs, and drawing from his pocket a
long sheet of Chinese paper scribbled It
full of grotesque characters. At the
bottom ho wrote tho following address
"M. Esen-Ang, banker, 13 Hue des
As soon as he departed Mile. G
reflected that no one hero would cash
the draft, and as her creditors would
not wait until a remittance should ar
rive from Shanghai, she quickly made)
u; her mind to leave for the I'lowery
kingdom. That same evening she de
parted from Paris for MarseWles, where
she took passago on tho Nadyr. The
voyage lasted forty days. At last she
arrived at Shanghai, and showed the
draft, but no one knew tho Chinaman.
There w as no Rue dew Europeens. The
deceived voyager had tho writing on
her slip of paper translated, and it
"I am verv happy at the attention

me from the moment I made her ac

Mile. Hortense G returned In
tho steerage. Three dnys ago she met
the Chinaman in the Place de la Con
corde. The yellow-skinned visage and
the pig-tail "suffered considerably in
tho encounter. She has begun suit
against him for 100,000 francs for dam
ages and her voyage to China. .Parts
