We may moralize as much as we
please about pain; but the (act is,
that we don't like it while it lasts,
and that we want to get rid of it as
sooji as we can. Whether caused by
rheumatism, gout, disordered liver,
weak nerves, irregular kidneys.baa
blood, or anything else that a just
the reverse of what it should be, the ,
aobner it is out of the system the
happier we are. Whether pain is
the result of imprudence or of acci

oar sins, may be a nice question for
the philosophers to argue ; but peo

THE HISTORY QF AN OPAL RING.
Though "The Clearing In an Ameri

Idly as he could have wished, it had
progressed, and well. St. Lawrence
was both too true an artist and too con
scientious a workman to leave any
part unsatisfactory or incomplete. If
any portion of the painting had not
pleased his fastidious taste, out it had
been taken, sometimes again and again,
until it had fallen into just harmony
and proportion. It was now all but fin
s But to-day he could not work; he did
not even attempt it. When he returned
to the house he wrote a letter to Ber
tha, giving the story of his love from
the beginning telling her how in the
first instance he had been attracted by
Lena's beauty, but how soon even
during the first evening of their ac
quaintancehe had recognized her own
finer nature. He told her how for
Douglas's sake he had striven to keep
his love within the bounds of friend
ship, and how utterly he had failed; and
how he had felt it necessary to remain
away lest he should be tempted to the
betrayal of feelings he thought then he
' had no ri 'lit to entertain. All this and
much more he wrote, ending by implor
ing her to trust him. however appear

were some at any raw who set the
weather at defiance, for about thre
o'clock in the afternoon a carriage
stopped at the door, and a knock re
sounded through the quiet house. St
Lawrenra gave no heed: there were
other lodgers, and few visitors came to
him. He had never sought society, and
was as vet but little knows. Steps
were heard ascending the stairs, how
ever, and after a tap at his door, the
servant threw It open, and announced
, "Lord Aipmngton."
Had a bomb-shell burst in the room
St. Lawrence could scarcely have looked
more startled. The sketch he was
about to place in the portfolio dropped
from his hand, and he stood for a mo
ment as if struck dumb. He soon, how
ever, recovered his self-possession, and
with hiB UBual graceful courtesy ad
vanced to meet his visitor.
Mr. St. Lawrence, I believe," said
Lord Alphington, who had been scruti
nizing the young man keenly.
St. Lawrence Bowed assent.
"I have heard of your talent as a
landscape-painter," the Earl resumed;
"and, as I wished to meet with a pic
ture to suit a certain niche In a room at
Alphington Park, I have taken the lib
erty of calling."
He turned toward the picture on the
easel, but a film as of starting tears
blurred the object before him.
"Have you yet disposed of this, may
I ask?" he said.
"No, my lord," St. Lawrence replied.
"It Is not yet finished; so that, as a
matter of course, I have not yet put it
forward for exhibition."
Lord Alphington took a chair, and
sat down before the picture sat long,
as if examining it carefully; but as he
gazed at the canvas other and widely
different pictures presented themselves
to his mind's eye.
St. Lawrence stood, one hand resting
upon the back of a chair near him.
Unconsciously he bad assumed the very
attitude of the portrait in Magnus
Square. The light fell full on his hand-
anmn. manlv far.A ant off in anrnA de
gree perhaps by the careless grace of
his painters attire. Lord Alphington
looked up from the picture, a sigh came
from his Breast, his pale cheeks flushed.
"What sum do you ask for this?" he
aid, a slight quiver in his voice.
"I thought of asking two hundred
pounds for it, my lord' St. Lawrence
replied, something of repressed emo
tion on his face, and in his voice also.
"It is good very good," said Lord
Alphington. "I should like to become
Its possessor. You will be equally at
liberty to exhibit it. I should be doing
yon an injury to prevent that. But you
undervalue it, I think."
He drew his check-book from his
pocket, and. going ' to the table on
which the inkstand stood, he wrote a
cheque for three hundred pounds, which
he handed to St. Lawrence.
"You are too good, my lord," ex
claimed the latter, the same indefina
ble expression again passing over bis

time, will you sit down, and bear with

"My time is quite at your disposal,"
8t. Lawrence replied, though with
shade of constraint and embarrassment
as ne seatea nimseir opposite.

much struck with vour resemblance to
the portrait of a son of mine I had the
misfortune to lose many years ago,
when he was not much older than you
are now," Lord Alphington began. "I
wished to judge for myself. I find the
likeness stronger than I had expected,
not only in face, but in voice and man
nerso strong that the conviction
forces itself upon me that you must in
some way be connected with our fami
ly, though from what branch you can
have sprung I cannot guess. You are
not only extraordinarily like my own
son, but you have the Fancourt face, as
the portraits at Alphington can testify.
I tell you this that you may not suppose
I am actuated by mere gossiping curi
osity." "I do not think I should suspect that
In any case," said St. Lawrence, with a
smile that went to the old man's heart.
"Miss Bertha Dalton told me last even
ing of the likeness she had discovered."
A softening of the eyes and the voice
did not escape Lord Alphington's ob
servation. "It is as I suspected there is an at
tachment in that quarter," he said to

"I fear, after the great Irindness you
have shown me, Lord Alphington, you
may think me ungracious," he said. "It
is a matter of deep regret to me to have
to place myself at a disadvantage in
four eyes. I need scarcely .say that, if
answer questions, it must be truly
and frankly; and I am compelled to add
that circumstances at present necessi
tate a reserve that is the more painful
to me as it may lead to mis judgment on
the part of those with whom I would
most earnestly wish to stand well."
"Are these circumstances ever likelv
to be altered?" Lord Alphington asked
after a pause, during which, judging by
the varying expression of his counte
nance, many thoughts and feelings have
been chasing each other through his

As he spoke, clasping his hands, and
leaning his elbow ou his knees, he bent
forward, raising his eyes with a look of

to the face of his interlocutor.

The mornine after his debauch Fan-
court awoke in a state of despondency,
and in the worst or humors, lie swore
at the imperturbable John, and then
shed a few maudlin tears over his
misery. He sent his breakfast away
un tasted and called for brandy and soda
water, after which he declared his in
tention of going up to London.
John had been astir early in the morn
ing, and had already made one or two
calls in the neighborhood, although the
small hours had seen him up and busy.
"Aren t you going to can at tne cot
tage this morning, sir?" he said, aa be
banded his master ms hat and gloves.
"Mrs. Lemont isn't well, I hear."
With a volley of oaths Fancourt
wished the cottage and Mrs. Lemont
and John all at perdition, and, Btridlng
off toward the railway station, bade his
man follow him. As they stood to
gether on the platform waiting for the
train to come up, he told John to have
everything prepared to return to Mag
nus Square early on the following day.
"it's a aeucea Dore umi Alphing
ton and those Langleys will be there.
However, after to-morrow I shall be
quit of the whole infernal lot for a time.
Where's Juno?" he went on, as John
made no answer to his remark.
"Juno was very bad, sir, and I thought
It better to have her put out of the way
Jesterday, when you were out," replied
ohn.without the shrinking of a muscle.
Fancourt swore at him again for a
meddlesome fool, but appeared rather
relieved by the news, lie was going to
say something more, when the train
came snorting up; he had only time to
Jump into a carriage. As he took his
seat, another person got into the same
carriage a tall, thin man with iron
gray hair, who might from his appear
ance have been a minister, or a scnool
master. He took no notice of Fan
court, but buried himself behind a
When the train arrived at the Vic

hailed a hansom and drove off to Ivy
Cottage, the stranger called another
cab, and followed at a distance. When
rancourt returned In the evening, the
stranger was again in the same train,
though not this time in the same car
riage. John watched the train as it whirled
away, and then walked toward a gen
tleman's house at some little distance.
After transacting his business there,
which did not occupy manv minutes, he
went on to the cottage. Perkins opened
the door when he knocked, and at the
same time Eliza put her head out of the
parlor-door. They both looked pale

"Hush! Dont make a noise, my good

room, r i v T a 'j r.-' , v
Mrs. Lemontwas dressed, ' but lying
on the sofa, pale as a corpse, except
where a spot of rouge on each cheek
made the rest of her face appear more
ghastly. ' Her lips were drawn, and
great drops of moisture stood on her
Brow. ' ' " "
"She has goue off fainting like that
twice since breakfast-time," said Eliza;
"and then she couldn't eat nothing, she
was so sick." "
"Go for a doctor, there's a good fel
low," said John to Perkins. '"I'll stay
with your mistress." . .
PerKins, not sorry to evade the re
sponsibility, struggled into lus coat. :
"Pirst give me some brandy," re
quested John. 1 ' 1 '
"Here's some we've been giving her,"
said Perkins, pointing to a bottle on the
table. "Mr. Vancourt left it for her,
thinking it might do her good." ..
"Have you any other in the house?"
John asked. :.. .
"I think there's some in the cup-,
board," Perkins replied, wondering why
John wanted another bottle.
The sideboard cupboard proved to be
open, and Perkins brought out a small
decanter with brandy in it.
"Mr. Fancourt said this wasnt good;
that's fine pale brandy," Perkins re
marked, as with some hesitation he put
into John's bands what he considered
an inferior article, . , ,
"That will do; now make haste be
off,", said John, applying himself to
bathe the unfortunate woman's temples
and the palms of her hands with the
spirit, and touching the rigid lips with
By-and-by a faint color returned; she
opened her eyes. Seeing John, she put
out her hand, and the look of intense
suffering in her face diminished.
"Donx leave me," she murmured
faintly. "I have no one! I can trust
i wonx leave you Tui'tne aoctor
comes, marm," said John. "Try to take,
a little of this.'? " - .
He carefully rinsed out the glass that
stood on the table, and, pouring in some
brandy from the decanter, he raised her
head on bis arm, and held the glass to
her lips. She sipped a little, and seemed
"I am very ill," ahe said.
"I'm afraid you are, marm," John re
turned. "Do you know how you came

"No," said Mrs. Lemont. "I felt aick

out of the room.
John looked round, and perceived a

"Is this the medicine Mr. Fancourt

Terror seemed to have given her
strength. Trembling from head to
foot, she clutched John's arm, as if life
or death lay in his arbitrament.
"lake courage," said John, soothing
ly. " You'll get better; the doctor will
be here soon." And then be added, in
In a tone of indignation, " You'll live

"A scoundrel he is! jTone knows that

woman. . ,
" What is he to you?" asked John, fix
ing his Hhrewd eyes upon her, while he
stretrhed out bis disengaged hand lot
the glass containing the brandy. .. '
Letting go John's arm, she covered
her face with her hands and moaned,
rocking herself to and fro. Bodily pain
and mental anguish struggled with the
fierce uprising of the will to revenge
herself upon the man who would have
destroyed her. ' ' i-
"Take another sip of this, and try to
compose yourself," said John.
Unable to hold the glass, she yet lift

to her lips.' She clung to the hope of
life, striving against the faintness that
again threatened to overpower her.

kitchen, he met ber at the door, and
took from her the cup of arrowroot; she

Eliza, obeying something of authori

knowing why, gave him the .cup with
out a word, ana retired to the kitchen.
John tasted the arrowroot before Mrs.
Lemont, to give her courage, and then
helped her to hold the cup, while she
took a few spoonfuls. . , !:

A slight tinge of color returned to
her face; she put ber hand up to her

John, in his surprise nearly letting the

story of her husband's infidelity told
her that in two days from that time he
was to have married Mudelina Dalton.
Again the strong will conquered. . 1

but addressing himself to the doctor.
