A tr.iin bound for .St. Louis had just left the ilenot at n.'llrl'ontaiiie when a gentleman fil tered the Miioking car, ami laid his hand up on the .shoulder d' his (ravelin;,' companion :i tall, handsome man ol thirty, who sat musingly blowing' rings ol ugur HinoUe, into the air. ".Marey," said tin: new comer, "ii you want 1-) sec at once the sweetest and saddest sight you ever beheld, into the last ear but om in the train, there is an einigrant ticnnaii with four little children, and during tin; at' iernoon the youngest d' them, u baby, has died. Tlio mother and the ulher children are inconsolable." "I can understand," interrupted the .smoker, ' the sadness ol such a scene, but where is the Kweeliicss you spoke of." "I'm coming to that. The whole party have been taken in charge by a youngs lady. Such a be luty ! .She dried tin; mother's tear, :i:ul wiped the childivns' noses. She is a di vinity! She only needs a lew feathers on her shoulder blades to make a full-IIcdgal angel of her. If I was not a married man, I'd nev er leave her 'till I'd made .Mrs. Angelica Townsc.'ul out of her." "That's a speech which I shall faithfully report to .Mrs. Agnes Townsend," said the gentleman addressed us Marey, rising. "1 t-hall e,o hark and feast my eves on this Sis'. U-i ot Charity, and," he added, taking his traveling satchel and shawl from the rack, "as we stop at the next station, which is due m ten minutes, 1 may as well take my traps wait me, and join you on tin- piatlorm. ' This said, KicliarJ .Marey threw his sliaivi over his shoulder, and sauntered leisurely through the long train, rushing blindly and calmly to bis fate. For, as he entered the last ear but one, he became- a witness ami an ali tor iu a scene that intlucin.cd his whole future lit". Tli'.' poor, gricf-strieken ;erman, ol' whom iiis r impanion, Dr. I ownsend, had spoken, Willi the dead inlant l.'i her arms, sat silently and sadly weeping-over the jmor little dead ;',t'-e. Thet!i:v. i-a sorrow was indeed illg beside Tov.'ii.- end': .sturdy children, grouped in child about their little dead brother, l touching spectacle. Mill, stami them, was the divinity of Dr. admiration, and she who was most eel! imly t i hare the end, of the unhappy Hicham." She was a .slender girl of eighteen, with mr.piilkcnt eves and hair. As be entered she w.is speaking, her lovely face Hushed, and Ihe small rsy Mouth disclcsing a beautiful set of teeth, turned hew i'.chingly toward the tall stranger at the door. "Ladies and gentlemen," spoke up the sweet voice, "ihi poor woman, friendless, speaking ' Kngiish, with four children, wasexpectmg to Mud work in St. Louis to support them, ii .verythiiig b id gone well with her it would iia.el.een h.,rd for her; but with her little d";d L iby and sorrowing heart, she i ci rtain y a deserving object of charily, and 1 pro. pose, that sue li as fee! w illing, contribute their mite towards a little purse for her immediate want- and the burial (if her poorbaby.

After the first salutions our hero retired to his room to remove some of the evidences o hisiidu from New York. He had rci.nvci hUcoat, vest mitt collar: he had soaped ami washed himself, when lie made an ustoiiii.linir. discovery. ' , , . , .. Flushed and breathless he burst into the next room upon hi friend. "Townsend," cried lis, "I've got the w rong ba" I've cluuitfcd baggage with the Ancl of '"Mercy. Look at that slipper! See that thimble! Contemplate that glove V" 'It is very evident that vou have .got the lady's satchel. And what was there in your IIIVII ." l "Don't lirin.i? up that dreadlul idea, said Dick. "Cigars, and u hairbrush, and a pack of cards, and neoinl., pocket-Mask and a tooth brush evcrylhiiiLf disreputable. If 1 am jiid-ed by that bag I tun a lost man!" "And 'this 1 look for a clean shirt," and Dick held up a frilled and Muted sacque, such as do duty lor more exlensire night-dresses with ladies when traveling. "I'd like to see Vi"elica when she opens my satchel." And Dick fell to musing, with the slipper perched on two linger und the Hilled white j uwioi s.ireai! out telidei Iv on his knee. Iii the upper apartment of a handsome mansion in St. Louis, on the esening or the day our heroine first made the reader's ac quaintance, beautiful lirace Kdgerly, the pet led and only daughter of the house, sat con templating the various articles her confiden tial maid was disposing upon the labk ar '.ides taken from no lets a receptacle ih.in Dick Marey "s traveling bag. The cards and cigar case lay side by side, and a highly scented party they were. "What's in that little silver Mask, KosaV said the fair heiress. "Ihiinily," replied the maid. "He can't be verv dissipated to travel with such a little bottle. That's in ci.se of sickness, I suppose," returned Urace. "It's my belief," said Uosa, w ho w as a sharp I'irl. "that the gentleman was a nice one, else you'd not so readily excuse ihe cards and the brandy bottle." "For shame, Kosa!" All gentlemen play euchre traveling, and ev. a clergymen take a little brandy in ease- of sickness. And this man was a gentleman, and a liberal one, too, for he gave the poor emigrant woman ten dol lars. What's that, Ilosit." For at that moment l.is,i held between lo r linger a letter. Whether it was wrong to i .-ad a stranger's letter perplexed (iraeeii-r a moment, usher eves glanced ai me superscription ami nano- w riling. "Why.ol'all liiings!" ex. Limed the delight ed girl, seizing the letter, "why. Komi, this is Jennie Marcy's writing, and addressed to her only brother, llichard Matvx who was in Europe when we two raotuti d at Madam Kilter's, in IJrooklyn." (iraee read rapidly until she had almost reai bed the middle of the letb r, w hen she burst into a merry laugh. "Hear this, lio.sa," .she .vial, and she read from the. letter Above all things, Dick, ileiir, don't fail, while in St. Louis, to see njy best Iriend and schoolmate, (i race Ldgcrly. I know you will fall in love with her, tor, besides being the best girl in the world, she's a beauty and an heiress, and father's choice, above all others, for his son's wile." riieii this '-entli'inaii is, ol course, .Miss letiuie's brother," said Kosa, "and what will she say w hen she hears of vottr having inc'. in this romantic, manner ' lT iloii't.intcnd to tell her of it till I go to New York this fill ; perhaps her brother will call." Hut in thissupposinon lirace was mistaken. She passed, and she saw lio more of the gold en haired Kichard. In the fal M race and her father Went to New York, and the Mi st day alter her arrival found her silting with ihe old schoolmate, who, alter the Iiist elliisive meeting, sat dow n to empty her soul, "lam so clad vou arc here this month," Jennie said, "ln-caiis.1 I'm to be married in October, and I have always been crazed to have you for a bridesmaid, and Dick is to be Harry 's best man." "Hut Dick is madiv in love" (.'race turned pale. .. i . . . i . i ... 1 1 i , . . ics, l was ureatiimiy provoKcit wnen lie passid through St. I.ouisaud never went near y'ou.

Hi's got her oil slippers under a glass case; he's got her gloves stuM'.-il under another; he's got her night gown done up in lavender; lie's got her Ihiii'.ble on his watch chain; and I do believe he's got some hair-pins and a liaiHu ush next to his heart! h, it's folly to interfere.

When a French orator had finished an do (pient harangue to a l'ari- ian crowd, one of them cried out, "I should like a lock of that man's hair." The speaker was only too glad to grant the favor loan admiring auditor. Hut another and another ami then scores, ye, hundreds, bi'gg'ed the some souvenir which the politeness of the Mattered Cicero would not let bill) refuse. Ill less time than the speech had consumed, the speaker w as bereft of his hair like a sheep beneath the shears, or S impson on the knees of Delilah. Tlio experience of the French demagogue has been that of Nebraska. Six years ago she s'.ood before the world a boundless con;i gaily of unimproved pr iirie ami oll'.-ied a farm to everybody who would come and lake it at a shilling an'aere.

Here where there are tit enough for all to cat, it is dillieult to re.di. the destitution that forces undergarments iu to yie pawn oMlcc : ( )nc of the most certain indications of hard times is nil increase in the business of pawn brokers. These n fuges of the poor and im pecunious, w hen ail other methods of raisim; money tail, were never l.unier than now. The How cry ollicu of the Simpsons is thronged i v cry day with poor people, whose appeal. for more money than the clerks are; willing to give upon thu article oll'ered, are piteous. Among' the many callers are to he seen num bers of well dressed people w hom lack of employment hasdriven iljere, whose ell'. rts to escape observation on entering and le'iviiig are so palpable. At one of the Kowi-ry otlice it wa stated that its business had incrca-ed nearly fourfold since the panic, and that the report from vlli' r pawnbrokers indicated a similar increiisp, The common ditliciilty of geuhvg money for (Ui reiit use has been expericni-ed by the pawnbrokers. The scarcity of money had forced tin in to reduce the Usual amounts paid upon jdedges.
