A Loy8 Story That is a Little Out of tha
We, Mother Ray nor, Jaok, and L
were sitting in our little sitting room,
our be9t room, but not parlor, for moth
er would never call the little box of a
room by so dignified a title, and for the
hundredth time they were telling me
what they knew of my life.
"You see, Birdie," said mother, as I
had always called her, "It was a stormy
night and Jack had been detained at
the store he was cash-boy at Cotton
& Co. 's then but just as he was run
ning up the steps about 7 o'clock he
mefa woman hurrying down them.
She brushed by without speaking, and
he, when he reached the door, almost
stumbled over a basket where you lay
all snugged tip in warm flannels. Ah, but
you we're a nice baby, my dear!"
"Pity my mother hadn t thought so!"
I sarcastically observed.
"Undonbtodly you would have fared
better than in our humble ho;u," said
"Why Jack you don't think I meant
that, do you dear?" I hastily asked.
"It made me feel badly to think ray
own flesh and blood would abandon
mo to the trust of strangers, that's all."
"That was seventeen years ago to
morrow night," nieditato'd mother, un
heeding our conversation.
"Yes," chimed in I, anxious to clear
the cloud from Jack's forehead; "and
you have always called it my birthday,
and have always mado the day so pleas
ant for me too. Let me see! I rattled
on, "you thought I must hnve been
about a vear old. and so I am li to
morrowf Have you made my birthday
cake yet mother?"
"Yes, indeed. And tbat reminds me
I must go out and see to the frosting of
it too to-night. No, you star right
hero. Watch her Jaok, for sbo's not to
see the cake until to-morrow,'"
I retroated before her laughing com
mand, and seeing how souf Jack still
looked 1 determined to do my very best
to make him behave like his own old
self sgaln. Perching myself on the
arm of his chair I leaned over, trying
to catch his eye.
"Cross, de;ii ?" I asked, very sweetly.
"No," he replied in a tone that said,
"Yes, decidedly so; let me alono."
But I was not, to be rebuffed.
Slipping my arms around his neck I
drew his faco around towards mine.
"You're sorry you didn't send me to
the Foundliug Home, arn't you? It's
enough to make any one cross to think
how he has been troubled for seventeen
years just because he was so soft-hearted
over a miserable little baby whoso
own people didn't care about keeping
it- Are you sorrv, Jack?"
"Are yon, Bird?"
He suddenly straightoned up, a look
in his dark eyes I had never noticed
"What have I to be sorry for?" I
asked. "Wasn't I thrown into the
hands of the dearest, kindest mother
and brother a girl ever had?"
. "Yes dear that is we've always
meant kindness; but still I am not your
"I know it, but I love you just as
well," I began, but some way under
the steady look of Jack's beautiful eyes
I could not go on with my usual pro
testations oinfl'ection, as I had always
been in the habit of doing, and I drew
my arms away from about his neck.
"But I don't want you to, Bird," he
said slowly, and then he went on eager
ly: "My darling, I want you to love
me just as well as I do you, dear. I
want vou for my very own, for my
Clasping me close In his strong arms
he told mo how happy I could make
him by saying that I loved him.
And so strongly did he argue bis
case that some way I was completely
won over to his way of thinking, and
before the groat birthday cake. "V
frosted Jack and L were engaged.
"I've accepted Jack as a birthday
gift," I whispered to mother as I ran
A radient look of surprised joy fairly
illumined her dear old face as she com
prehended the meaning of my remark.
"It has been the wish of my life,"
she whispered, kissing me softly. "Bo
ready for other birthday gifts tomor
row, she called after me.
"O, happy birthday!" I whispered
when tomorrow dawned, and 1, awak
ening, remembered my promise to
Jack. "What better gift could I have
asked than the' gift of dear Jack's
Several little tokens were at my
breakfast plate, some very expensive,
too, for since Jack's pioturos had be
gun to sell so well and orders poured
in faster than he could execute them he
had begun to be quite extravagant
He had gratified an oft-expressed
wish of mine by having a little cameo
earring, found in the basket in which
they first found me, set in a ring for
me for one of my birthday presents.
It was an exquisite, clearly cut, cameo,
aud it had a decidedly unique setting;
so I had always Indulged in the hope
that some time, perhaps, I might learn
through it who my parents were.
It had evidently dropped into the
basket by mistake" for there was noth
ing else about me to identify me. There
was none of the proverbial strawberry
marks or moles so often found on lost
children in stories so I had only the
cameo to connect me with the unknown
So I slipped it on my finger, and
when Jack told me to keep it for an
engagement ring until he could pro
cure another it became doubly dear to
Bv-and-by, as soon as breakfast was
finished, much to my surprise and dis-
nnrdntment. mv lover went up to 1 i
studio and remained invisible Jor twn
"Ho might have spont my birthday
with mo, anyway," I pouted as I plml
dod up-stairs feeling "blue" enough.
I knocked at the door of his studio.
"Not just now, dear, I'm busy," came
In Jack's voice from beyond the door.
Angry and indignant, for he had allow,
ed mo to spend my mornings thero for
two months past, I silently went to my
And I was angrier still when not ten
minutes later his door opened to admit
Miles Grillnh, a fellow from the Artist's
And then I was ready to cry with
vexation. They had always petted ami
spoiled me, mother and Jack, and h i
me have my own way, so that I could
not bear even this little neglect grace
fully. And besides we were Just engaged,
and Jack, it seemed to me, wasu t act
ing just as he ought under the circum
stances. At last 1 was determined to be mean
nough to listen and hear if I could
what they were talking about so earn
stly in the studio.
Me, I found out at once, for Jack had
ust spoken my name as I guiltily
put my ear to the keyhole (A dis
graceful thing to do, I admit, but as I
mean this to bo a faithful account of
my birthtliiy, and as I really did listen
at the keyhole, I record it.)
"I have made a great mistake," said
Tack, sighing heavily.
I couldn't distinguish Mr. Griffiths
reply, but I, hushing my breath, heard
lack say again: . ,
"It has always been my mother
I wish. 1 did it more to piease her, I
suppose. She loves Bird dearly, and
With a dry sob I fell forward on the
nig. I could not have stirred then had
they opened the door and saw me there.
"He has found out this early that he
has made a mistake, has he?" I thought
bitterly when my brain stopped whirl
ing so I could think. "It was only to
please his mother that he asked me to
become hia wife! And to think he
should reveal his disappointment to
that horrid old Griffith first! O, it was
I resolved to release him at once, but
again I listened, having a dim hope, I
suppose that perhaps my ears had de
"If it suits my mother " began
"That's not the thing," interrupted
Griffith. "You never would be suited.
She lacks expression and "
"Yes, I know naturalness I know
the faults for I'm bettor acquainted
with Birdie than vou are, Griffith."
"To be sure' assented Griffith.
Mouth too large; eyes very vacant, I've
noticed. I advise you to give it up."
"I'll take your advice, said Jack
emphatically, and then I rushed to my
So through "Griffith's advice," which
Jack seemed so ready to take, my brief
little romance was to be sliatterea.
Well, 1 would never stay and let him
see my heart break, too; for I felt sure
I never could live through this trouble.
80 dear had Jack in tUo role ot lovor
become to mo in a few short hours.
And so some way now it all seems
like a vague dream to me I found
mvsclf wandering aimlessly down a
strange street, not knowing or caring
where my steps tended. Sotno work
men obstructed the sidewalk and I was
obliged to cross the street.
I remember of stopping down and
advancing a few steps, of hearing
hoarse shouts of warning, feeling a
sudden shock, and then all was blank.
When I returned to consciousness I
was in a strange room, everything was
6tranie to me.
"Where am I?" I askod, although I
could see no one. "What has happen
ed?" "You are with friends," 6ald a low
voice near me, and turning my eyes
they foil on a sweet-faced lady not yet
old, although her hair was nearly
white, sitting near me.
"How came I hore?" I demanded io
a weak, startled voice.
After a brief consultation with the
woman, evidently the nurse, the lady
decided to explain the situation.
"You are weak, but I trust to your
good sense to remain calm while I tell
you why you are hero. About a month
ago you were crossing the street and
my husband and I accidentally ran
against aud severely injured you.
There vt'as nothing about jou to iden
tify you, so we brought you homo."
"And this was a month ago; has
no one been here? Did you adver
"No," replied the lady. "It was re
ported in the police news, I believe, as
my husband had to pay a large tine for
his carelessness, but 1 never thought of
advertising for your friends. I supposed
they would go to the station and then
be directed here, if you had any in the
"I have none," I said bitterly. "I
was only a foundling, living upon char
ity all my life."
I was feckless. I did not think how
unnecessary It was to speak of my own
history to a stranger.
A whole month I had lain there and
no one had called.
And my pale, thin hands showed how
near to death's door I had been. As 1
lay looking at my wasted fingers I no
ticed my ring was gone.
Hastily I inquired where it was. My
new-found acquaintance blushed, and
"Will you allow my husband to talk
with you a few moments? He has your
In a few moments a tall, handsome
gentleman accompanied her into the
- "Years ago," he began, after apolo
gizing for being the cause of my ill
ness, and congratulating mo upon my
recovery, "I had a pair of cameos carv
ed in this city. They were unlike any
thing ever seen here. I had them set
in a pair of earrings for my wife. One
nlght-our house was robbed by a trust
ed servant; the cameos were taken
along with other valuables."
"Was anything else takenP" I asked,
sitting upright, forgetting for a mo
ment my weak state.
The gentleman strove to control his
emotion, but his wife was silently weep
ing near the window.
''Yes, our only child," he replied
brokenly. "Now will vou tell mo
how ymi cann by thin oni'ipo, for it Is
the same? I to-day took it to the per
son who carved it for me so long ago,
and he recognized it at ouoe, although
it has been reset."
'Was it seventeen years ago that
your child was stolen?" I asked eager
ly. " "Yes. What do you know of it?" he
"I know that I am your child then."
After I had told the story so often re
peated to me by my mother Raynon
they were perfectly satisfied that I be
longed to them, aud their joy beggars
Their story was that my father had
given his wile a necklace of diamonds,
and seeing how pleased her baby was
with it sho had shaken the ' stones be
fore its eyes, and at last in a spirit of
fun, clasped it about the child's neck.
But she did not understand the fast
ening, and as her husband was away
from home and she could not get the
short chain over the child's head, she
was obliged to let the nurso put the in
fant to sleep with the glittering orna
ment about its neck. But the tempta
tion proved too great for the nurse's ca-
faeity, bo she had taken the babyquiet
y out to a neighboring jeweler and had
the necklace unfastened.
The theory we, my new-found parents
and I, formed was, that becoming
frightened at her own exploit and not
dariug to try to replace the baby I
never can realize that that baby was
myself lest she be discovered she con
cluded to abandon it entirely.
"Now, where do these people live
who have cared so kindly for you? I
must see them," said my mother.
Reluctantly I gave the address. Jack
Cam straight to me after my mother
told her errand, and he looked, go old
and worn and haggard that for a mo
ment I was lost in pity for him.
Then I remeuilicred the indelicate re
marKs he had made to Miles Griffith,
and in trying to be frigidly cool I only
succeeded iu crying weakly.
"O Jack! Jack!" I sobbe'd, unable to
be anything but my own impetuous
self, "why did you teach me to love you
only to tire of me so soon?"
l ire! How? What do you mean,
dear?" hn asked, taking my hands anx
iously as if he feared I was not quite
rutionaL And then as I grew calmer
I had to confess how I had descended
to the contemptible business of eaves
dropping and what I had hoard.
"It was my birthday, Jack. Don't
you remember you had Griffith up
in the studio. And you told him
you had mado a great mistake
engaging yourself to me, and and he
advised you to give it up, and you said
you'd follow his advice. '
For three minutes Jack stared at me,
and then he, with difficulty repressing
an inclination to laugh, aaid:
"My darling, how could you believo
it? Now listen. As you know, my
forte is landscapes. Well, I thought
I'd make one more trial at portraits,
bo while lately I have been entertain
ing yon and mother so politely ii the
studio I was slyly taking 'sittings.'
Vou know your birthday, or the day
wo celebrate as yours, and mother's
fall on the same day; so as sho often
expressed a wish to have your portrait
p.iinted, and thinking that you would
like hers 1 painted your counterfeits as
best I could, and then before I show
ed them 1 sent for Griffith, the fnirest
critic in the club. He told me candid
ly that as a portrait painter I was a
dead failure, and advised tue to never
allow the public to see my attempts.
The criticisms you heard were of your
picture. Not you. Are you satisfied?"
"Perfectly," I answered, feeling as
if now I could get well and strong at
once. "But my jsror birthday was all
spoiled," I sighed.
"To-day is your birthday, my dear,"
interrupted my new moth'er nriyhtly,
entering the room with Mother Raynor,
"and if the other was spoiled ask what
you will and you may have it."
"I'll take Jack," I said gayly. And
so I did, "for better or for worse," a
year from my 18ih birthday.
Mrs. Kingsley tells us that the rector
of Eversley s horse was his friend, and
knew it. His Scotch terrier Dandy,
after attending school lessons and cot
tage lectures, and accompanying his
master regularly in his parish walks
for over thirteen years, was laid under
uudor the firs on the rectory lawn, be
side Sweep, the retriever, and a"Teck
cl" of the Queen presenting, with
whom his attached master sat up dur
ing the last two suffering nights of the
little creature's life. Charles Kingsley
delighted, too, in cats, the stable never
lacking its white cat, or the house its
black or tabby one. On the lawn
dwelt a family of natter-toads, which
lived on from year to year in the same
hole in the green bank, which the
scythe was never allowed to approach.
A pair of sand-wasps one of which
had been saved from a watery death in
a hand-basin by the tender-hearted
rector lived in a crack of his dressing
room window; and every spring he
looked eagerly for their advent. A lit
tle fly-catcher that built every year un
der his bed-room window was a con
stant joy to him; and he rejoiced in a
favorite slow-worm in the church-yard,
which his parishioners wero specially
enjoined not to kill. Believing, like
Wesley, in a future state for animals,
Kingsley loved every creature that
draws breath, barring the spider; to
that he owned an antipathy he could
neither conquer nor understand.

Anecdote of Stephen Girard.
I met an elderly gentleman the other
day whose memory is as keen and
bright as it was forly years ago, and he
told mo an interesting ntory of one of
his friends, who was no less than
Stephen Girard, the founder of the
college in Phi adelphia which bears
his namo. He said: "Girard was a
most peculiar man, and in some respects
the most extraordinary personage I
have ever met. You remember his
deep hatred toward the clergy, and how :
he made a provision in his will that no
minister of the Gospel should ever enter
the college which he founded. Well, I
have heard that it arose in thismanaer: '
Years before his death Girard was ac
customed to give quite liberally to a
multitude of charitable objects, and
many were brought to his attention by
clergymen. One day be received a call
from a minister, who asked for a con
tribution. Girard listened patiently
and wrote out a cheek, which he hand
ed to the caller. The next day the
same clergyman came again, and said
that he wished to draw tho philanthro
pist's attention to the fact that he had
f;ivcn one of his associates a much
arger sum for an object somewhat less
worthy, Girard said quietly: 'Have
you the check with you? The visitor
produced it. expecting that he would
receive a handsome contribution, when
suddenly the millionaire tore the papvr
in shreds, saying: You wore not sat
isfied with what I gave you ia the first
place. You shall now have nothing.
There is the door, sir.' I believe that
that was the beginning and tbe founda
tion of the bitter hatred which Girard
evvr afterward mamicsteu toward the
