It was nix o'clock in tho afternoon. Al lilts lime the urent wholesale ware hou^e of Mf.-.sr.s. Hubbard &8>nwas wont to close, unless the pies-ure ol business compelled l lie laitners to ket- p r.jien util il <a?er. Tti<- ?lnty ol elnsing n>ual ly devolved upon E lvvi.nl Jones, a l>oy ol louiteen, wlio li.nl bilely b'?en engaged 10 pet form h leu tiuht dii'ies, tor which lie n-ceived the sum of fi:t v dollars annually. II was the "hoy," but. it" lie behave him self so as to win the approb.it ion oi his employers, his chance of promotion WftS good. Yet. there were some things that rendered (hia small salary a liuni trial to him ? circumstances with which his employ his weie not ac quainted. His mot her was a widow. The sudden d^ath ol Mr. Junes had thrown the entne family upon theii leeources, and they were indeed but slender. Theie was an older aister who as sisted her mother to sew, and this, will) Elward's salary, constituted the entire income of the family. Yet by uieans ol" untiring industry, they had contrived thus tar lo live, using si net economy, of course. Yet they had wanted none oi the absolute necessi ties of life. But Mary Jones ? Edward's sister ? grew nick. She had taken a severe cobl, which had terminated in a lever This not only cut olF the income ari sing from her own labor, but also pre vent ed the mot her from accomplishing aB much as shejwould otherwise have been able to do. On the morning of the day on which our story commences, Mary had ex pressed a longing for an orange. In her lever it would have been grateful I to her. It is hard indeed when we are ob liged to deny to those we love what would bo a t elreshment and a benefit to them. Mrs, Jones felt this, and po did E I ward. ' I only wish that I could buy you one, Mary," sant Elwaid, just hb he set out for the stoie. "Next year 1 sh dl receive a lai ger salary, and, t hen we w?n't huve to pinch so much." ''Nevermind, E I ward," said Marv, smiling faintly, "I ouyht not to have asked for it knowing how hard volt and mother find it to get along with out me." "D 'ti't trouble yourself about, that Maiy," said Mis. J.tncs, soothingly, though her heart ?unk within her at the thought of her empty larder. ' Only get well, and we shall get along w-dl enough afterwerd." It was wit h the memory of thia scene that E Iward Went to the store in the morning. ! All uronncl were boxes of rich good A representing thousands of dollars in monpy. j "Oh," tnov^ghyhe, "if I only had the value. >;fc^jij0e box^s hpw mucli poo-1, it won'bi 'do poor Mary." And Elwaid sighed. Thf I )ng day wore away at last, and Eiwaid was' about to close the warehouse. But as he passed the deslc of his em ployer, his attention was drawn to a bit o( baper lyiug on the floor be neat h. lie pinked it up, and to his great joy tound jr to b?.a ten dollra bill. The first thought that flashed upon him wan, "How much good t bis will do Mury; I car/'ouy her that orange she wants, and she will have some every day; an-V- perhaps she would like a chicken." But a moment later his counten ance fell, -V** "It. isn't minpVhe s:ghed. It rami he Mr. li'ibbi'i-d'e. Tnis is his desk, and he must huyft dropped it." 'Still.,' urged V. he tempter, he will never know ii.. And alier all what are ten dollars to Jinn? lie iswoith a hundred t hou-and." .Si ill, E I werd w ts not satisfied Whether Mr. Hubbard could sp;ire it til" not, was not the question. It was ii till i fully Ins, and must, be given tMi.'k to iii rn. '?I ll go to his house and give it to hitn this vei v night," sail Elward. "Otherwise I will be tempted to keep it.

"Well?" he Baid inquiringly, "ban anything happened?" "No sir," said Edward* "but I picked up this bill near your desk; and I suppose you must, have dropped it. I thought I had better bring ii here directly." "Yuu have done well," said Mr. Hubhaid, "and I will remember it. Honesty is n very Valuable quality iri a l;ov just commencing in a business career, lleieattei 1 sha' I have perlect eon (Hence in your honesty."

Not that he had regretted that he had been honest. There was satisfaction ! in doing right, but I think my reader will understand his 'eeluigs without explanation. Mis. Jones brought toast, to her I daughter's beii^nle, but Mary motion ed il it away. "I thank you for taking the trouble to make it, mother, she "aid, "but I don't tlnuk I could poss iqiy eat it." "Ii i hero anything you could relish Ma rv?' "No," she said, hesitatingly, "noth ing that we can yet-." Mis.

He did not at first appear to notice Edward, but in about half an houraumoned him to the office, which was partitioned off from the rernaih der of the spacious rooms in which goods were stored. "Tell me frankly, did vou not feel an impulse to keep the bill wbjch you found last night." j '"I hope you won't bp offended wil h . me, Mr. Hubbard," said Edwaid, "if I eav I dul." "Tell me all about it," Mr. Hub* dard, with interest. "What was it that withheld you? I should never have known it?" "I know that,'* said E hvard. '"Then what withheld you from taking it?" "Pilot, I will tell you what temp ted me," said Edward. "My mother and sister are obliged to depend upon sewing for a living and we live but! poorly at best. But a fort night, since ; Mary became sick, and since then we; have had a hard time, Mary'sappetite ' is poor, und she dues not relish tood, but we are aide to get her notlnnfi better.

"Nil, sir, it would huve been wrong and 1 could not have locked you 111 tb'r lac-H alter it." E lward spoke in tones of modest con iidence.
