At abont two o'clock this afieruoon, as I was sitting in lent upon taking the finest possible stitch around the border of your finest cambric, there cumo a sharp rap oil the street door. 1 hastened to open it, and found uiyscjf face to fnce witit a man of middle age, who bowed politely, and inquired if lie wus on the lino do Chalons. On being informed that he was, ho thanked me af fably, and was turning to depart when his glttnco chanced to fall on this little cornelian cross which was then as now, lying on my bosom, lie stopped short, gazed fixedly at it, as though it possessed some horrible fascination, turned deadly pale mid In a bourse whisper articuluted; Mndame, you will pardon- me it U no prdinary cariosity that prompts the qiioatlon but might I venture to ask how that trinket, poiuliug a trembling finger at the cros,' tame into your possession under what ciicuuiaUiices? Well, queried Henri In a low, Interes ted tone, and what was my 1UU wife's reply? ; - t Your little, wile told him, sir, that it was a present from her husbaud and that it had been in her possession four years. How or whei'o vou canio by it aha could uot iiilunn hiui. Then ho departed, imtisfied? Xo, indeed. . No? what then? Then he inquired your name, age and profession. Did he?

What wus his gcneial appearance that of a coarse, ill-bred person? " ' ' ' Fur from. thut. He was quite (all, not over fleshy, well-dressed, and t-efined in his bearing und language.' ilia 'counte nance betokened much illness at some early period of his life or excessive dia Sipittloil, . , ., . Should your cros-cimmorcj fi'ionfl ov er call again, and I much doubt, if he ever does, said Henri, I urn the parson with wliotn he must, deal, j ' " ' Why with yott, dear? , , Because the object he Is 6o desirouj to possess hits a mysterious history, known only to myscll. . :, ' ' : ' ' And that mysterious history affords a key to the solution of tho seemingly lu sane oiler of five hundred franos? : I apprehend such to be the case. That cross was found tin a spot where a few days previous a rovoltlng crime had been committed. It" my aurmihcs are correct, this strange visitor of yours was the author of that crime. Ifso, he and the little red cross are old acquaintances and ho wonld readily sacrifice several times five hundred fruiics to compass its pos session. Why? Simply because so long as it remains in other hands than his own he is painfully conscious that it may at1 any moment rise up in judgement against him, and cost him the more irreparable sacrifice of his head. Aud you have kept all this dark ui 6 tery from me, complained Irene. . I have, but will no longer. I have refrained from making you acquainted with the circumstauces that are associa ted with my finding the trinket solely from a fear thut the kuowlede. might cause you to conceive o morbid dislike1 for it, and us it is really a pretty toy, 1 liked to see you wear it. And now for the mystery. Do you remember the murder, six years ago of a uoblottiitn of the name of Compte do ft. Anriande, in the line de Germaine? Distinctly, replied Irene. All Paris was thrilled with horror at the mystery and barbarity of the deed. Rut what remarked the stranger, who, after pfcer associtttion can this cross have with that j ' '" walled in. dreadful affair? j An intimato association. That cioss ! was found by me on the Identical spot , of the murder, and but three days there- after, Jf you closely examine the under side you will observe a smull drilled hole at each extremity. From these holes 1 bulled to infer that it tvus worn origi- ' nally as a breastpin und that it was o j full to the ground w here I found it. To j this day, in spite of the 'Superhuman eff- : ot U of a by uo mean obtu-o police and j incentive of fabulous rewards by St. Ar-; J mande's relatives, the murderer is uudiit- covered and the whole affair remains in j impenetrable mystery. After all these ; unrctealiiig years, who shall say that the ; coming- fcigetber of lhi man und the cross is not the working of a retributive I i fate? Too doe the man of the 'in- ; explicable fancy,' know that the lillle toy j be so cuvels is adequate, if it falls into! i proper hands to work the crucifixion of, , a great scoundrel. ( L'jjU! Miuddered Irene. Aud I have beeu wearing it all thi lime, hih! admi - ring it, totally ignorant of the terrible , 'biiij: iu blooil red color s; mhoozes. I cati wear it no lunger.

All the preliminary arrangement being made, our urtist detective took his station at a window, and behind closed blinds, became a silent and iulense watcher. lie was a brave and resolute man; but nevertheless an occasional misgiving flit ted across his piind. Tbe business be fore him was of an extremely hazardous nature. Should tho supposed prove tho real criminal, his capture would be like ly to be preluded by a desperate and per haps fatal encounter. If fatal, fatal to whom? Henri thought of this, then of I re lie, ami closed his eyes. Then ho thought of tho gendurmtt in tho next room, set his jaw, and in a spirit of grim deliuucc, put all forebodings from him. Morning, noon, afternoon and evening glided by with no result. Henri yawn ed with impatient discouragement. His allies took to the bedroom floor and cards eaily in the forenoon. Hitherto the ex citement of the ciiase had been strong enough to sustain Henri's interest. But now? Would the expected not conic tiller all? A brief consultation wilh the officers who adhered to the opinion that he would come, aud was much more likelyo make his appearance within the next three hours than at any previous time during the day, especially if he was a rogue, and not lacking in their usual low cunning braced Henri somewhat. Lighting a lump for tho quondam gamesters, , and also one for himself, he camped on tho lounge. ile hud but got comfortably settled, however before a resonant rap on tho street-door brought him instantly to his feet. School ing himself to meet tho probablo crisis with quiet deliberation, ho leisurely pro ceeded to the door aud ojiencd it. From Irene's graphic description, ho had no difficulty iu recognizing his visitor. The expected man of tho cross stood before him. His heart gave a tremendous thump against his' breast; but his voice was steady and quiet, as he saluted tho strang er with,1 Good evening, sir. Good evening, sir, responded tho visit or, scrutinizing Henri closely. Is the niadaiuo at home. ; : ' i My wife is the lady lo whom you refer, 1 presume, said Henri, She is absent on a visit. Can 1 serve you in anything? Will you not step in, sir? Henri threw the duor wide open, that the man might see that the room wa vacant, and hence imagine him to be alone. Ah! you are the husband of the lady I have the honor. I 'ray be seated. I will tiespuss upon your hospitality but fur a few moments No trespass, i assure you. fsoliludo is not the best of companions. Without removing his hat, the stranger 1 look llie proffered chair. I can lurry but i a short time, he said.

During the utterance ot the concluding words ol the above, the countenance of the listening man underwent a most ap palling change a dreadful, indeed, as though he had heard the sentence for his immediate execution pronounced. The muscles of hia face twitched coiiruNively, his under jaw loll, aud hU eu rolled about in their sot kels as though following the fantastic evolutions of some horrid goblin. Tbe paroxysm lasted but for a moment.

Just as hi muscular hand closed op pressively on Henri's throat, he w as vio lently jerked backward, mid found him self in the tenacious clutches of tbe two gendarmes. So, ho! my fine fellow ! ejaculated one of the officers. We are altogether too deeply concerned for the future welfare of your soul to permit yott to perpetrate such a crime. Yon have done bad enough already lo bring you to hanging, and thai is quite sufficient for our purpose. The foiled villain glared sullenly from one to the other, and made no at tempt to escape. That is right, remarked the officer who spoke before. Take it easy shows you to be a philosopher and a man of uncom mon 61MISC. The prisoner coolly folded his arms, and stood silent. Monsieur Cardouc continued the officer as vour friend seems to tako kindly our interference with his little plan to afford you a long rcating-spell, will you, with equal disinterestedness, provide us with a rope, for his benefit?

In fact, wo were rather uncertain of having tho pleasure of your company on our return.

As ho vanished, a bullet hiss, cd by cither car, but ho escaped unhurt. The reports of the pistols hurried Henri back into the room, from which he had gone iu quest of a rope.

It is Loono Rrcme, llie most reckless and ferocious of the many cut-throats who infested Paris six years ago. Ho most miraculously disuppcurcd about tho time of the Sl.Armuiide murder and the department had given him up for dead. We must not let him have his length, for the moment. Our first move is to lodgo information at the three heads of tho Police department. Ho ia an astute dog, of in fi ti i to resource, and the whole force ou Ihe scent will hardly suffice to capture him. lireme wai eventually taken. Rut so adroit was lie, that ho connived to re main at large for thruo weeks alter his escape from Curdone' house. He wus tried, condemned, and executed, for the murder of St. Armaude, several witness es being found who imlcntilicd him and testified to having been fastened to his shirt bosom, on the evening of the mur der, that identical blood-led rarmdiuii cross.

Rut I don't think it possible for it to be holler than it was yesterday. We have here something both novel aud instructive to tho mind. For instance people of ordinary culture might thus con verge: Good morning, miss. Nine and eight makes seventeen. Yes, sir, they do; and three from sev enteen leave fourteen. Ami one more will make fifteen. Yes, sir; but seven into fifty-three la very difficult. Or, if tho parties have attained a higher grade in mathematical knowledge, e might have something like this: How do you do, madam? Six and seven-eights added to four and a quarter make eleven and one-eight. Yes indeed, Mr. Jones ; and three ami a ninth w ill not go cvanly into fifteen. Certainly not; and eleven-twelfths of six will come within two and a half of be ing eight Now, would not audi conversation be improvements in every w ay upon tho suc cession of weather platitude which have been so long iu vogue?

A universal scholar will be seen no more among men. Tho range of hu man knowledge bus iiicreitsed so vastly and has swept out und away o far and so fust thut no bruin, bo its quantity or quality what it may, can in the yeur al lotted to man, ever survey the field. A man, therefore, must make up his mind, if he propose o learn anything, to remain in profound ignorance of a great many other things. It Is a bitter thing, per haps, but it is tho fuct that n man w ho would know anything lu this century, must purchaso hi knowledge wilh vol untary uud chosen Ignorance of a hund red other things. Ono must choose hi specialty and devotion and diligence in that Is the price ho pays, for success. It is with doing as it is with knowing. There Is only a certain amount or work In any case. Ho cannot do everything. Nevertheless everything needs doing. All about him Is undone work clamoring for hands. There aro two courses before one. To undertake everything, to fret und grieve because Olio finds this and thut undone, und to make spasmodic ef forts to do it, this is Ihe way of failure. Resolutely to mako up ouo's mind to lei, as far a he is concerned, Ihe most that should be done stay undone still, lo alee' one's heart against demands ami necessi ties, to resist nil inducement to put forth a single effort, to close one's eye to It all und to stick heart, hand, life and love to the thing a man undertakes und culls his own, that in the way of success. One luiiht choose, ami be content with lis choice. And so it comes to pas that now at last, tlit! measure of a man's learning will be the amount of hi voluntary igno rance, llie measure of bis practical effect iveness the amount which ho is content lo h ave uimttempted.
