"You might do better, John."
Mrs. Williams spoke fretfully, as if the
news told to her by her only son was not
pleasant for her to hear.
What a ringing clear voice it was.
So strong and hearty, as if to match the
tall, stalwart figure; the bright brown 'eyes

"Mother," cried John with a quiver of
anger running through the surprised re
ioach of his voice, "you should know Hun

Mrs. William's conscience gave her a
sharp twinge, for she did know Hannah
better than to think she would debrive a
crippled old woman of her only home.
But Mrs. Williams, like many a fond
inother, had nursed such high hopes for
the future matrimonial prospects of her
boy, that she felt only a rude shock of dis
appolitment when he told her of his en

John might aspire to something higher than
a mere shop girl.
He was well educated, well connected,
and occupied a responsible position.
Just one week later Hannah Coyle came
to the house, where she was to have had
grudging welcome as its miatress, and en

The son she idolized, die trusted clerk,
the fond, proud lover, was lying in a cell,
walting'a trial for forgery.
He had been arrested for passing a forged
check, taken in the very act of attempting
to cash it at the bank.
The story be told of its possession was so
Improbable that it still further injured him,
and gave personal revenge an additional
motive for his punishment. He said that
Gerald Somers, the son of one of the part -
ners of the firm, had sent huni to the bank
with the check.
It scarcely needed the young man's in
dignant denial to contradict this stoiy.
A friend in the same employ had gone to
the mother and told the news as kindly and
gently as possible.
A fierce anger and stout pride had kept
the old lady up during thut trylUg inter
view, but once she was alone, she ciouchied
in the cushions 'of her chair and moaned
out in the titter nfiqery of liar heart.
There was no strdg.arm to lilt her to her

There was no hearty, reiging voice to bid

burden ot anguish, moaned its sad refrain,
when the door opened and lHannah Coyle
No friend had broken the news gently to
the young girl.
But the shock camne rudely on her from
the columns of the daily paper.
It was not in one hsourr or two, that, she
could conquer b,er own grief so as to leave
the house. But when the first battle was
over'in her heavt, she went at once where
she knew John would have her go.
So when, faint with her long night of
misery, the mother lay moaning, a kind
hand was placed upon her shoulder, and a
voice clear and strong, but sweet with wo
manly teinderness, spoke the decarest wordl
She looked up with haggard, bloodshot
eyes, and saw b)endling over her a face that
love, pity, and deep, mnutterable tenderness
had transformed into positive beauty.
"Mother," the sweet, clear voice said,
"this Is not what John would wvish."
Thue mother's tears, the first she had
shed, flowed fast at the souind of her son's
"Oh, Hannah I" she said, "you do not

Tito Gypsy at Rome.
ln Hungary, the Gypsy is to be seen in
. the purest type, strongly resembling the te
mulatto, except that the eye is generally re
more liquid, like that of the Spanish or to
Italian races As a rule, the men are flder 1H
looking than the women, their picturesque th
costume, gold ear-rings and long curls ad- ki
ding greatly to their good looks. Once di
in a while, however, one sees among the th
young girls a real Eastern beauty, who th
might serve for a model of Cleopatra, but pr
usually their principal attraction lies in gi
their peculiar dress-a bright handkerchief th
wound around the blackest of luxuriant ta
hair in fantastic fashion,fstened with gold UI
pIDs, dangling ornamens, and sometimes Ja
a bunch of flowers. w
Many of the gypsies have beautiful Ov
houses and extensive estates in bleben- be
burgen; are rich not only in money and hiI
lands, but possess treasures in plate and f
rare old furniture,for which they may well IN
be envied. Notwitis.anding these attrac. w
tions at home to induce them to lead domes- H:
tic lives, this race, upon whom the curse of 80
disquietude seems to rest, can only enjoy lo
their homes for short periods. After a few h<i
months of ease and luxury,even the wealth- to
lest among them leave civilized life, and
join wandering bandt to go off for months hi
of travel, without any apparent aim except th
the Tulfillment of that destiny which has to
made them wanderers on the face of the ca
earth. , oib
The whole world seems arrayed against 814
them, and, except in their own little col- di
ony, they are only allowed to dwell with
their fellow-beings for a few days at a time. bO
Even this short intercourse is granted by a aI
special written permission from the chief re
of police, without which no gypsy can a
enter or remain over night in any village. dr
They are obliged, however, to serve in of
the army, but are disliked and mistrusted hi
by both comrades and officers for their dis
honesty and insincerity. Several oillcers qu
in the Austrian army, who have had them w(
under command, told us that the Zigeuners bb
made very poor soldiers, insubordinate,and
deserters whenever the chance offered, al
though cringing to the last degree when in
the presence of their superior offlecers.
"We can always detect a gypsy in the cc
ranks," said Major is , "by the ser- tIf
vility of his salute." Yet among them. ot
selves they are brave and law-abiding,hav- lox
lug generally a male leader to each band or tw
tribe. As far as we could learn, the bi
"gypsy queen" is a theatrical creation; but 01
the wives and daughters of the leaders are Ol
held in high esteem, as are also the decend- sh
ants of their ancient chiefs. There is a
pride and independence about them that
would lead us to believe that they had their
origin in ancient royalty. 1la

The time of encampment is spent in of
