She took from her pocket a little por trait, and handed it to him. It was tbe face of one Cecil had seen lingering long beside her the night before ; one he had known by reputation for years ; the most popular and polished gentle man of the time and place. "Now, Cecil, I have acted candidly with you ; can we not still be friends?" He knew all then—knew she was lost tohim—knew that the hopes of years e re crushed knew that the girl before him was false.

A flush mantled ber pale face With a cold, bitter smile, Cecil Delmar turned away Another instant, and she knew he bad gone. "False girl!" he said; "will wealth I and P 0 * i ' i f n mak ® ^ h8 P py ? . Y f it perhaps ? for surely she has no heart for I aught else. How true! Well, the dream is over, and life has nothing more I f° r me - Could my loss of fortune make pre- | her fly from me? Ah, she might have worked for wealth and fame to offer her! How inviting the water looks to-night. The waves seem calling me. I will go." Cecil, leaving Florence, had wander con-1 ed b#8 j de the , 6eashor A Certainly life seemed very dark to him then. He be 7 I lieved the mysterious future could not 1 t, e more so. Mounting on the pier, he , determined from thence to plunge into .f " the bosom of the ocean.

Perhaps he had looked into the depth of her heart, and found the skel eton bld den there Florence had told Cecil Delmar he had work to do. Ho had done and was still doing it Fortune had returned. Fame crowned him with her brilliant laurels. Fair women smiled upon him. Men were proud to call him friend. Once more they met, ten years after when Florence, rigidly beautiful and a widow, seated in St. James' Hall, gazed down upon the member for Elmvale who was finishing a brilliant speech on some exciting political topic The same ■ old smile—the bright bewitching smile ^ P 0W8r " aB over 5 gone! «be feared, beyond recall.

There came a look of disappointment over his face quite unmistakable to Florence,as well as to a young lady friend who sat near, who said, "O, bat do not despair, Mr. Delmar. She is a widow." "Thank you," Cecil answered, smil ' 'Slightly ; I have met her. But she ing. And Florence saw that the informa tion gave him pleasure. A few moments after the young lady had left to speak to a friend in another part of the hall. Cecil Delmar and Florence were alone. Turning toward her with a forgiving smile, he said, "Florence!"

The following story of Baron Roths child, of Paris, is told:—On a wet and disagreeable day the Baron took a Par isian omnibus, on his way to the Bourse or Exchange, near which the "Nabob of Finance" alighted and was away without paying. The driver stopped him and demanded bis fare. The Baron felt in his pocket but he had not a "red cent" of change. The driver was very wroth. " Well, what did you get in for if you could not pay? You must have known you had no mo ney." "I am Baron Rothschild !" ex claimed the capitalist, "and there is my card." The driver threw the card into the gutter. "Never heard of you be f° re -" sa *d the driver, "and I don't want to hear of you again. But I want ™7 t are — an d I must have it." The rea ' banker was in haste. "I have on ^7 aD order for a million," he said, "give me change," and he proffered a CI)U P 011 for 50,000 francs. The con ductor stared and the passengers set. up hoar8e laugb - Just then an "Agent de '^'b an g e " came by, and the Baron borr °wed of him the six sous.

Whilst on the subject of Denmark it may Dot be in appropriate to speak of the "Study in Butter" now on exhibition in the Art Gallery, but formerly in the Women's Pavillion. This beautiful alto relievo picture can only be seen to be appreci ated. It is a lovely face and represents "The Dreaming Iolanthe," the blind daughter of King Rene, of Denmark, the subject is an ideal portrait taken from the poem "King Rene's Daughter" by the Danish Poet Henrio Hertz.— This beautiful piece of work is the un tutored effort of a natural born sculptor Mrs. Brookes, of Arkansas ; it was made in April at her home on a farm near Helena. She churned the butter and modeled it from her own idea of the poem, in her dairy when the thermom eter was in the apper figures. She is, as she says in her own sweet way, but a common farmer's wife, and when tell ing over and over to the admiring crowd that surround her, at all times, her story, how sho is sent here by tho ladies of Ohio, and how she made the lively head with but few tools, (and those too are shown) her magnificent eyes will flash with all the fire of true genius ; and the truthful confiding face will quickly dispel any doubt as to her story. She had photographs and also stereoscopic pictures for sale, of the picture which will serve as a refreshing memory of a beautiful work of art and also its facinating artist. .. to ween— tide, of in of in oar Rosaleink. AN HEIRESS TO $560,000,000. Miss Melissa Elder was a poor clerk in a hotel dining-room in Atchison, Kan sas and here is the account from a in journal of that city of her wonderful lack: A short time ago Melissa Elder fell heir to £112,000,000 sterling, amounting to about $560,000,000. It seems that her great-great-grandfather, on her mother's side, who was a Roman Senator, had all his property, which consisted of a vast amount of real estate in and around the city of Rome, confis cated to the Roman Empire, on account of his being concerned with Marc An ' 0D y in the terrible assault on the body of Caesar. Caesar's wife was also cased at the same, but Marc Antony [ afterwards said she was above suspicion, and nothing was done in the matter , All the property of Melissa's great great-grandfather, however, was confis cated upon the testimony of a detective. The detective was afterward taken with frenzied remorse, and wrote a full a fession, moved to Pompeii, and was liv ing in that ill-fated town when the sud den catastrophe which befell it out him down in the prime of life. During th" recent discoveries among the ruins of Pompeii this confession was discovered andMissElder'sgreat-great-grandfath er was fully vindicated. A Chicago lawyer, who was traveling throueh Eu JT vW ° f - the f CU "? tancea ' and by aid of detectives, found m the person of Melissa Elder the only surviving heir of her lamented great-great-grandfather The lawyer has taken the prosecution of the case on a contingent feo, and Me lissa leaves for Rome to take possession of that town.

The celebrated duel between Ran dolph and Henry Clay grew out of the Presidential election of 1824. In that election Mr. Clay, finding that he had do chance but held the balance of pow er, elected John Quincy Adams, by whom he was made Secretary of State. In public debate Mr. Randolph spoke of this as "a combination, unheard of till then, of the Puritan with the black leg." In the resulting duel Clay missed his aim and Randolph fired wide. Clay grasped his hand and exolaimed : "I trust in God, my dear sir, you are touched ; after what has oceurred I would not have harmed you for a thou sand worlds." Not long after Clay told Randolph that Mrs. Clay had borne a son, and they had Darned it John Ran dolph Clay. Mr. Randolph, straight ening up, replied: "I hope he will never disgrace his godfather, withstanding this incident, and the fact that Mr. Randolph paid a visit to the Senate but a few days before bis death for the express purpose of bidding adieu to Clay, the tradition is that he was at his own request buried in his grave in a sitting posture with his face to the West, "that he might watch his enemy Henry Clay." The place which he se lected for his grave was between two pine trees in front of his house. One of them is still standing, The third river in Scotland is the Vt" Forth.

If it wasn't Adirondack Murray then it was tome other clergyman who was hunting along the wharves the other day to find a vessel just from the African eoast, hoping that some of the crew might have brought home an innocent hearted, pure-minded parrot, which might be purchased at a reasonable figure, and trained op in the way good parrots should walk and talk. The vessel was found, and the sailors had brought back a splendid speoimen of African parrot, and they didn't want but five dollars for it The clergyman admired its plnmage, thought the age was just right, inquired after its general health, and asked : "Has the bird yet attempted to utter any words?" "Bless your topsails, but she talks as well as a boy ten years old," replied the sailor. "Then I don't want her. She has probably caught up a great many bad expressions, and she would not be a fit pet for my household." Avast now . said Jack. Do you suppose a man like me who reads the good book twice a day, would have a bad bird around him ?

I "Isn't she a diamond?" exclaimed Jack trying to wink at the minister ,°. with both eyes. "I must confess she is the best-mind-1 . ed parrot I ever saw o^hcard of," re plied the clergyman.
