A SAD STORY.
There is a sad lesson in the story of
Selnna H. Ditzell. A mere child, she was
employed asa servant by a family in
Chicago, who suffered from the pecula
tions of a practiced thief, evidently.
Selma was finally charged with stealing
arrested, and confessed to stealing
money; and when asked what she did
with it, said, she sent it to her parents in
Michigan. The moment she was dis
charged she obtained a qIuanity of arsenic,
and before her death assertated in the
most positive manuner that she had con
fession the theft solely to escape the
prosecu tion threatened in case she did
not confess. Her parents were telegraph
ed, and they replied that they had not
received any money from their daughter.
Now the people who extorted a confession
through fear from a mere child, if they
are not lost to all feeling, must regard
themselves as murderers. Possibly one
of the tamily is guilty. At all events the
action that drove a mere child to commit
suicide through shame, and a sense of
outraged feelings, can not be con
templated by their fellows with any
degree of patience.
' irs. Sylpvester and her daughter Maud
lived in a pretty semi-detached villa in
the neighborhood of the pretty English
village of Clapham. The good old lady
was what most,. people would consider
comfortably off; but she, who hbd once
known all the luxuries that wealth can
bestow, regarded herself as one of the
unfortunates who merited as much pity
as the wretched pauper who crawls into
the workhouse for a night's shelter.
Poor Maud Sylvester's life was rend
ered a pefect misery to her. Lord
Waistrill's son almost lived at the quite
~little villa, and worst of all, Mrs. Sylves
,ter encouraged him.
Lord Waistrill had told falsehoods suf
ficient about his precious ne'er-do-well
to raise Mrs. Sylvester's hopes of so
cial aggrandizement for herself and her
daughter's ptospects to insure my lord's
persistence in his son's behalf.
But his son needed no urging on. He
was madly in love with Maud. The
more she showed her dislike the more
affectionate he was. In vain she assured,
him she could not care for him.
To make matters worse, her mother
entirely changed in her demeanor
toward her. With all her vanity, sel
flshness and absurdities, Mrs. Sylvester.
had hitherto been affectionate toward
But now a change had taken place in
her demeanor. She threatened that she
would leave her penniless when she died,
let her make her own living as she could,
if she did not consent to the marriage.
It grieved Mand deeply to see her
mother stoop to a falsehood in her wild
desire to bring about this marriage.
Now Arthur Chambers and Maud Syl
vester had so far;kept their engagement
a secret from every one excepting her
Of course poor Mand took every oppor
tunity to visit her friends in Bayswater
as frequently as she could, and to her
confidante Lucy she revealed her trou

able creature to whom mamma would
have me sacrifice myself."
Of course Lucy did come as often as
she could ; but cre long her visits were
put to a stop by the Ilositive rudeness of
Mrs. Sylvester, who, for the sake. of her
own wishes, desired to sever Maud's
connections with her Bayswater friends.
Lucy, dearly as she loved Maud, could
not continue to visit at a house where
she was openly snubbed and insulted,
Not satisfied with having driven her
daughter's dearest friend from her doors,
Mrs. Sylvester at last objected to Maud's
going to Bayswater.
Maud rebelled indignantly against
"Why," she justly asked, "was she to
give up her dlearest friend P What had
she, Lucy, or any member of her family
ever done to merit any such unheard-of
"Never mind what they have done,"
answered MIrs. Sylvester; "that has
nothing to dto with the matter. It is my
desire that you should not visit them for
the present at least, and you must sub
mit to my orders."
"I am sorry,' answered Maud, "I can
not in this instance obey you." ,
"But you must andl shall, cried her
Maud did not answer her.
"Do you hear me ?" cried Mrs. Syl
"I hear you," answered Maud.
"And yon must obey or-"
"Or what f" questioned Maud.
"Or I will turn you out of the house,"
cried Mrs. Sylvester
"You need not do that," answered
Maud, with considerable emotion-"I
can go very easily, without being turned
She rose as she concluded speaking.
Mrs: Sylvester looked up at her. Har
dened through she had of late become
with this one hideous nightmare of so
cial aggrandizement engrossing her
whole consideration, she still had a
spark of better feeling left when the
pathetic tone of her dlaughter's voice
reached her ears.
"Of course," she said, pettishly, "I
don't mean that exactly; but it's your
duty to obey me Maud, in all things."
"In all reasonable things," answered
"Yon go against me in everything,"
cried Mrs. Sylvestar. "Whatotherdaugh
ter in the world wotlId hesitate to marry
as you now have the opportunity of mar
rying ? You can restore our family to its
place in society; you can-"
"'Mother,"cried Maud, -'for mercy's
sake d3 not approach that hateful topic
again. I repeat now what I have tolk

It was a splendid opportunity for Mrs.
Sylvester. Still further propagating the
idea of her substantial means, she inad

was deposited notes and gold to the
amount of a hundred pounds.
