Mr Almayno did not obaervo the littlo bloo nosed boy who crouched by tho brilliantly illnminated pla'e gli8 window bb ho sprang out of his car'iHge and went into tho thronged ehiSp. How should he? But little Boh Morrow's e"c eager with the aiukly sickly eight of extreme poverty, took in every detail of the rich man' equipage, and bis purple fingers ocd irtcli other tight as be look ed. "Obi" ho thought, "how nice it ranst bo to be rich to have ensh ioned carriage?, and big, red fires, and ininco pies every day. Oh, 1 wioh 1 were rich!"' And Ben shrunk closer into lne corner as tho wind fluttered his thin, worn clothing, and lifted tho curls, with freezing touch, from his fore head. Nor did Mr Almayno observe him when bo roentered his carriage, drawing on his expensive gloves, and leaning among his velvet chush ions, with a'sigh Bcnrcelv" less ear nest than little Beu'a bad been. The child's idea of "a big, red fire" wonld have bo.en quite realized if he had seen tho scarlet shine that illu minated Mr i41mayne'i luxurious drawinproorns that night, glowing softly on tho guilded tables, alabaster vBin, and walls of ro3e and gold; while just. before the genial flame the pa'e widower sat, thoughtfully whtcb inir tlie flickering spires ofgreeu arn-Hlij-sMight, and very lonely in his ppltrv.lM e"!:tude.

ITow lovoly she was, that golden haired girl, with bcr blue veined forehead and flarlf, down cast eyes! I was very much in love with Clara in those boyand-girl days. 1 should like to know on what shore tho waves of hrro have cast her barque. It is not ' iit'i: h person cio has known in lang svu vaniflies so entiro.y and utterly from one's horizon. Poor Claral what glittt-'ring air palaces we build in the future how solmcnly we plighted our childish troth! And when I came back with the fortune on whose golden colouades our fairy castle of happiness up-reared its pin nacles, she was gone And Alary was a good wife to me, a true one; but she was not tiara Will's." As the thought passed over hiB brain, he instiuctivcly glanced down at the finger upon which bo wore bis The ring was goue. 'Lost it can't be loet," be mur mured to himself, trying to think when and others be had laet observ ed it. ''Can it have dropped from my finger without my knowledge? 1 roust notify tlie police at once and have it advertisod. I'oor Mart's ring: 1 would not lose it for twice its value, and that would be no mean sum." It was a narrow and mnrky little street, with here and there a dim lamp flaring fooblv through the white obscurity of the driven snow; but little Bon Morrow knew every ono of his covered flag stouos by heart, and ran whistling down the alleyway of a tall, weather stained bnildirjg, un daunted by wind or tempeBt. "See, sis, what a jolly glove I have lound," be ejaculated, driving sud denly into a narrow doorway, and oming upon a small room only half lighted by a fceroseno lamp, beside which (sat a yonng womsa buily at work. "Hollo! is the fire out?' "Wrap this old shawl around you, Ben," said the woman, looking up with a smile that partook more of tears than of mirth, "and you won't mind the cold so- much. All the coal is gone, and I can't buy any more until I am paid for the caps. Did you soil any "more matches)' "Only two b txes," sighed the boy. "I was so cold, Clara, that I couldn't go roujd to the houses." 'Well, nevdr mind, Bon," she said, cheerfully. ''Sit close to me, dear we'll keep each other warm. Obi Bon, I should liked to bave given yon n nice whole coat for Christmas.' "Don't cry, sis," said the boy leaning bis head against bcr knee. "Didn't you give me a shawl for a cotntorter, oniy I lost it that windy day? You're jnst as good and Bweut as you can bu, Clara, and I love you just as wollasifyou was my whole sister, instead of only n halt viie.' bue smiled through her tears; "What was it about a clove, beiti. lie sprang sudJonl as it remem bering. "A gentleman dropped it in the direct; 1 ran alter the carriage, but it went too fast for me to catch up, Isn't it nice, sis?' "Very nice, Ben.' She drew the fur glove abstracted y on her hand, and looked at the rich dark fur. "Why, Bun, what's this?' Her finger had come in con tact with something in tho littla lin ger ot tho glove, and she drew it out. Even by tho dim light of the amp she paw the ' myriad sparkling fascitis of a diamond ring. "The gentleman must bave drawn it off with bis glove;" she said, while little Bon stood by in surprise and delight, "Ben, this is very valuable. Wt ought to turn it ovor to the owner at once.' "llowcan wo, if we don't know who be is?" said Ben. 'It will be advertised, dear; every efiprt will be made to recover so val uable a piece of jewelry. To trior row morning you must borrow a newspaper, and we wilt look over the advertisements." Sister,' said Ben, under hia breath, ''is tt very valuable? Is it worth a hundred dollars)' "More than that, Ben. Why!' ' Ob. Clara!' he sobbed, burying his face in her lap; "a hundred dol lars would bo o nicel I -rrioU it was't wrong to keep itl' Clara did not answer, bhoonly smoothed her little brother's tangled curls, and ho never knew how hard it wus to keep back ber own tears.

' Can you give me any information in regard to tho ring I have lost?' Ben Alorrow's sister was wrapped in a fadod shawl, with a thick, green veil over her face.
