Of course it was a lady a yonng, pretty lady. "I am sorry to titrable yon," she said, . "but I am directed to this office for a pocket-book which I lost yesterday. This I believe is number four," and she gla'ieed at the door. Oscar looked amazed, aud the lady, seeing Lim hesitate, went on. "The advertisement was in the .Vr ing Jlrrai'l.

The young lady remarked that she , might Lave made a mistake in reading the paper, and with that she gave Oscar as sweet a smile as he had seen for many a lay, and bade him "Good morning." That 'a very odd, though of course ; it's a mistake, somehow," said Oscar to 1 himself, as Le turned back into Lin ' dismal office, forgetting, however, to notice how dismal it had seemed a mo ment before. ! "Of course it can't lo here," he re ! pented, fumbling over the papers at the same time. "Sam may, perhaps the lioy is honest and he would never have thought of advertising it.

To discover her address, and take it to her himself, was the thing. So, after one or two attenips, Le wrote describing the lost article, and request - gtreet."

How I envied those of my friends who were able to return to the old roof-tree for family reunions. I knew, full well, the dear, loved ones could not gather about the old hearth, as in former days for too well I remembered that terri ble burden, in the form of a mortgage, we all tried so hard to "lift," ana yet failed to meet the demands. It was a sad day when we bade adieu to its sa cred halls, liut the world was wide. and another roof kindly spread its broad wings over us and gave ns shelter. For two vears our family all dwelt within the walls of this adopted home, and then there was a quiet gathering of cherished friends, and 1 stood beside one who promised to love and protect me, and in the presence of the company he kissed and called me "my wife ;" and then I was whirled away to another home, in a land of strangers. For a time the months flew by as on j angels' wings, for I was not only happy but busy as the swift-winged birds in arranging and rearranging the bright new furniture about our oozy cottage : e in preparing favorite dishea to tempt "I my husband's appetite, that I might hear words of loving praise from his lips.

When I arose to take my departure, . farewell dirge swept through the room, not dis- tinguishable to other ears than mine and a curtain was drawn across the easi window, that was invisible to other eyes. As I passed into the lane where once the green boughs waved their heavy plnmes in seeming acknowledgment of my presence, and the birds had caroled sweet anthems, I felt that the soft, balmy winds where whispering in my ear : "This ia never more thy Lome. Only the memory pictures, woven and painted so long ago, remain to be cher ished in the deep recesses of thy heart. From henceforth the western outlook will bring to thee brighter prospects ; experience has been thine. From the past thou wilt learn lessons of content ment.

Here the art gradually reached its culminat ing point 1 A California Story. In the early mining days of California there stood at the foot of the hill, not many miles from Nevada, one of those rough-built gaming houses so common throughout the mining sections of the territory.

The build ing contained but, one room, the en trance to which was situated at one end, i rL i - ii .. . ii ' wuu a large auooo nrepiace on the , other end, nearly opposite to the en trance. On the large stone hearth burned a wood fire, giving to the room j a cheerful appearance.

New Haven, in the loss of her State House, may console herself with the re flection that she will no longer be the snbject of capital jokes. The Union Pasific Railroad is build ing a snow plow to be driven by five locomotives. They expect it to go through drifts 20 feet deep. Instead of asking what people will think or say if you do thus or so let the inquiry be, what will be the thought or record -ivhich God will make ? A Massachusetts editor is inclined to approve an English teacher's plan in examining schools to pass a newspaper about among the children, and require each to read from it and to explain the allusion to events, institutions, aud persons. The captain of a San Francisco steam boat is exceedingly popular with the ladies, because he always puts back to his port if by the aid of a powerful field-glass, he can discern a female who has arrived half an hour after the start ing time. The new Trinity College building at Hartford will hs.ve a minstrel's gallery in its dining-hall, which will furnish accommodations for about 300 people. Each room in the college will have a fire-place in which wood or soft coal may be burned. The Belgian Government, it is re ported, has decreed that, in all the in sane asylums of Belgium, locked letter boxes shall be affixed to the walls, in accessible places, so that the inmates of the institutions may have the oppor tunity, without the surveillance of the asylnm authorities, of conveying any complaints, proofs of insanity, or simi lar matters, to those ontside the walls. This provision, which cannot possibly do harm, is certainly a humane one, and seems a really valuable means of detecting any of those acts of oppres sion which sensational stories, and oc casionally authentic testimon.es have connected with the mysteric;i- world inside "a mad-house.." " The aged mother of the Count de Segur is described as being a tiny little shrivelled old creature, with nut-cracker nose and chin, with eyes both dim and blear, and little wisps of snowy white hair sticking out from the oddest of bonnets, at the time when "bonnets" were still worn, dressed in the oldest snd shabbiest of nondescript garments. Attended by a "lady companion," much better dressed than herself, she never lost a "classical" concert, beating' time to the immortal quartets and quintets of Mozart, Beethoven, and Haydn, with her head encased in her large bonnet, covered with shabby ribands and faded flowers, her eyes shut and her whole frame swaying to and fro nnder the in spiration of her favorite composer. Liberian- colonization has enlarged the bounds of geographical knowledge by making known the fact that east of the territory of the Afro-American re public there are populous tribes, having the African features and hair, but light brown in complexion, and considerably advanced in civilization. They have mines, and are fairly proficient in agri culture and domestic manufactures. They are Mohammedans in faith ; read and write Arabic ; have public schools in which the koran is taught to the young, and many manuscript books. They are in all respects far in advance of the tribes of the Guinea coast Com mercial relations are likely to be formed very soon between them, the Liberians and the British colonists in Sierra Leone. A Kansas girl asks, 'Where is the work of farmers' daughters appreciated?' I am a farmer's daughter, and Uve on a large farm where dairy and farm work are carried on together. Few are the moments I call my own, for mother and I do our own work ; but I do not feel that my work is not appreciated, for the smiles and looks that accompany the words 'Weil done from father and mo ther are well worth a sacrifice on my part, and amply compensate me. I am inclined to think that many women want to shirk unpleasant work and do only that which is agreeable; but I think, whatever work is given us to do, we should work away at with a will, without murmur cr complaint, hoping for the best, and content with the allot ments of Providence." f A great many girls and women would find unpleasant work tolerable if appre ciative smiles and looks were a part of their reward. Kd. Adelina Patti, according to Vanity Fair, speaks English, French. Italian, and Spanish. Her favorite authors are Dickens and Feuillet She reads the Paris Figaro every day Punch and the Illustrated once a week. Rossini and Bellini are her best beloved composers ; primrose the color she most delights to wear. Nobody has ever seen her with an opal, for she has caught from the Russians the prejudice that this stone is unlucky ; bnt she loves pearls, Brus sels lace, sable fur, and black silk dresses with mantilla a FEgpagnole. As to other tastes, why deny that every night after she has sung she sups off a bowl of mutton broth, with rice enough in it to keep the spoon standing up right ; and the beverage that serves to preserve her voice as pure as crystal is not Clicquot, Grand Marque, nor La fitte 44, bnt bow thy head, Gambrinus, and ye, too, Messrs.
