And Mrs. Parker sat a trifle ' imore
erect if it were possible, in her buffalj
cushioned wagonseat, and grasped her
blue cotton umbrella tighter. But her
husband, Paul Parfcer, oo whose kindly
face the boy turned his gaze, said:
"See here boy ; I've only got a .fifty
cent piece and its more money than I
ought to give away. , I shall be here at
three o'clock, this day week, opposite
this very tavern ; will you be, here to
pay it back to me ? Mind, I only lend it
to you; iand may be I'll be able to find
some work for you by that time."
"Yes, sir," said the boy gleefully, as
he scrambled up the wheel, "I'll will be
here, sure." g j, ,- --- "
v "Paul Parkef, you're a fool ! : said the
woman, angrily. . "Jtou scatter your
money about as though there was no end ;
to it. Do youuppose : you'll ever see
your fifty cents again ?" , ( ,
"I hope so, wife," said the old man,
touching his placid horse gently with the
reins, .and,urgipg,biui into a sleepy jog
trot. "I should be sorry to think there
wasn't no truth in that bright-eyed little
fellow. Give the world a fair chance,
that's all I've got to say."?
The blistering August sunshine was
pouring into a little garret room in one of
the most squalid and neglected purlieus
of the town, where a brutal looking man
sat smoking a short black pipe, and two
or three boys lounged around halt asleep.
A hand organ stood against the wall, and
a monkey dressed in soiled red rags chat
tered in the window. " Nino's ;: accordeon
and thumped tambourine lay near by ;
Nino himself, with tear-stained' cheeks
and heavy eyelids, was crouched in a cor
ner, wistfully watching the door, as if re
solved to avail himself of the first chance
that offered itself for escape.
There was a wild beauty about the boy
in spite of his swarthy cheeks and for
lorn uniform of rags, and an attractive
ness that was difficult to understand.
His brow, overshadowed by thick black
locks, was frank and open ; his eyes
were Boft and liquid, ; and there- were
both spirit and gentleness in the well
outlined mouth, i Had Nino Berlani been
the offspring of aristocratio lineage, he
would have been called, handsome ; but
rags and poverty and blows are anything
but beautifying, and Nino had known
little else in his brief and sunless exist
ence,. V; . ;i 5
Presently the man knocked the ashes
from his pipe and laid it down, with a
vicious side-long glance at the boy.- '
"So you'd got fifty cents hid away, you
was going to gammon me out of, eh V he
demanded. "You young vagabond, I'd
like to know what you mean by it !"
"We can do nothing, wife."
"We shall be sold out at auction, and
die in a poorhouse yet. Oh, Paul, why
didn't you pay more heed to what I've
always kept telli a' you ?"
"Not so bad as that, I hope," said the
old man cheerily, though the muscles of
his lip and brow quivered.
"Father, is it St. John Martin, the
Leeds street lawyer, to whom you owe
this money t" '
"Yes; what do you know about him?"

. The elegantly furnished little office on
Leeds street did not often have such outre
equipages drawn up before it as Paul
Parker's mud be-splashed box wagon and
shaggy old pony, and the elegantly at
tired young lawyer, who sat at the desk
examining some papers, glanced no in
surprise at the blooming girl and the
bent pld man who entered together, like
May and December.

thing oi a start, to the brown laced old
man, who stood in the background. Lucy
introduced her father, and stated their

find her gallant young cavalier of the
past Fall in in the office of St John Mar

Elvaine's school as music teacher, and

wait a little "
Lucy stopped short ; her voice was
getting unsteady, and she was far too
proud to yield to the fast coming tears in
Ninian Martin's presence.
The young man had listened in silence
but now he took a tin box from its
shelf in the safe, and unlocking it, dis
closed sundry packages of labelled notes,
"It was mine," sobbed the . boy ; "I
earned it siagiu under the great ioiks

'Yours!" growled the man savagely;
"and all you earn is mine, and if ever I
catch you at any such a trick again Pil
split your head open for you. Where
are you going now ? Sit down again."
"Only out as lar as West Landhill
tavern," said Nino, entreatingly, as his
eyes marked the slowly creeping tide of
sunshine along the floor that formed his
only substitute for a clock.
"Well, we won't do no such thing,"
said the man, evidently in a most con
trary and quarrelsome mood. "Go back
to your bench again ; do you hear? You're
not goin' to stir out of this before night
aud not then, unless you behave your
self." "I'll be hack in ten minutes, sir; I

Nino, watching his opportunity as a
wild beast might, watch, for an escape
from the cage, gave a forward dart just
as the man.Btooped over to rub hia match
egainst, the sole of his boot. Uut he was
not quite quick enough; his tyrant
seized him rudely by the arm, and slung
him across the floor as if he had been : a
toy. p He fell, Ms temple striking against
the leg of a bedstead standing in the cor
ner, and lay quite insensible.
"Blest if I don't think he's done for,"
dad," said one of the hitherto impassive
spectators of the scene, a boy of thirteen,
who was generally dressed aa a "wander
ing Bavarian," with tambourine and
bolls. ' '
"Let him alone, I say," snarled : the
father, "I'll teach him a lesson.'.', .
Just then the bell in the old square
tower of the; town clock struck three.
"I told you he wouldn't be here, Paul!"
exultantly exclaimed Mrs. . Parker, pro
jecting her1 keen gray eyes into every
nook and corner around-the dull street in
front of the "West Landhill House of
Entertainment for Man and Beast." "I

The swift rolliDgyeara had " sprinkled
their silver blossoms more plentifully ou

deeper lines ia his wife's face. The lit

bewildered old man. "I don't remem
But I do. It is rather more than ten
years, Mr. Parker, since you put that
money at interest."

the young man smiling. "Perhaps Miss
Parker is not aware that I am only the
adopted son of my more than father. My
real name is Nino Barlini. I am " an
Italian by birth. Just ten years ago I
was begging in the streets of Laudhill,
starved and penniless. A kind hand

The old man's face lighted up.
., "I do remember now. It was a fifty

very best to come, but was prevented by
brutality of the man whose slave and

night in the streets, perishing from eold
and starvation. He had just lost his only

He turned to her with a brightr con

A Freak of Fortune.
Samuel Duhobret was a rllxpl, r.f tu
famous engraver, Albert Durer, admitted
into the art school out of charity. He was
employed in painting signs and the coarse
tapestry tnen used in Uermany. As he
was about forty years of age, small, uly
and numpnacked, he was the butt of ill
jokes among his fellow-pupils, and select-

um Durer, who tormented the scholars
and domestics, as well as the master, by
her Xantippical temper. Poor Duhobret
had not a spice of malice in hia heart, and
not only bore all his trials with patience,
eating without complaint the scanty crusts
given mm tor dinner, while his compan
ions fared better, but always showed him
self ready to assist and serve those who
scoffed at him.
His industry was indefatigable. He
came to his studies every morning at day
break, and worked till sunset. During
three years he plodded thus, and said
nothing ot the paintings ne had produced
in his lonely chamber, by the light ot his
lamp. His bodily energies wasted away
under incessant toil. JNo one cared
enough for him to notice the feverish col
or in his wrinkled cheek, or the increas
ing meagieness of his misshapen ' frame.
No one observed that the poor "pittance
set aside for his mid-day meal remain
ed untouched for several days. The
poor artist made his appearance as usual
and as meekly bore the gibes of the stu
dents or the taunts of lady, working with
the same untiring assiduity, though his
hands trembled and ' his eyes were often
suffused with tears.
One morning he was missing from the
scene of his labors, andr though jokes
were passed about his disappearance, no
one thought of going to his lodgings to
see if he were ill or dead. He was,, in
deed, prostrated by tbo low fever that
had been lurking in his veins and sapping
his strength. He was half delirious, and
muttered wild, incoherent words, fancy
ing his bed surrounded by . mocking de
mons, taunting him with his inability to
call a priest to administer the words of
comfort that might smooth "his passage to
From exhausted slumbers he awoke
faint and with parched lips ; it was the
fifth day he had lain in his ceil neglected.
Feebly he stretched out his hand toward
the earthen pitcher, and found that it
contained not a drop of water. Slowly
and with difficulty he arose, for he knew
that he must procure sustenance or die
of want. He had not a kreutzer. He
went to the other end of the room, took
up the picture he had painted last, and
resolved to carry it to a dealer, who might
give him for it enough to Turnish him
necessaries for a week longer.
Ou hia way he passed a house, before
which there was a great crowd. There
was-to be a sale, he learned, of many
specimens of art, collected during thirty
years as an amateur. The wearied Du
hobret thought he might here find a
market for his picture. He worked his

was laughing at the folly of offering ' so
worthless a piece at public sale, j , "It is
certainly my best work I" he murmured
pitcously to himself. He ventured to look
at the picture as the auctioneer held it in
a favorable light. ? There was certainly a
beautiful freshness in the foliage, a trans
parency in the water, a freedom and life
in the animals. The steeple, the ! trees,
the whole landscape, showed the genius
of an artist. Alas ! he felt the last throb

"Twenty-one thalers 1" a faint voice
cried out. The stupified painter gave a
start of joy, and looked to see. who had
uttered those blessed words. It was the
picture-dealer to whom he first ment to go.
"Fifty thalers 1" cried tho sonorous
voice of a tall man in black. 1 '
There was another silence.
' "One hundred thalers !" at length cried
the picture-dealer, evidently piqued and
"Two hundred !"

Another profound silence, and the
crowd pressed around the two opponents,

"Two thousand thalers 1" thundered
the picture dealer glancing around : him
"Ten thousand thalers!" vociferated
the tail man, his face crimson with rage
and his hands clenched convulsively.
The dealer grew pale, and his frame
shook with agitation. His voice was suf

cried, out : -
"Twenty thousand !"
His tall opponent bid forty thousand.
The dealer hesitated, lliv opponent
laughed a low laugh of insolent triumph,
and the crowd gave a murmur of admira

" "Fifty thousand !"
The tall man hesitated; the crowd was
breathless. At length, tossing his arm in
defiance, he shouted:

THE "SINGER" NEW
A Romantic Stoky. Louis Muhl-
bach, in het "Letters from Esypt," tells
a very romantic story about the wife of
Count Benedetti, the French Minister
Plenipotentiary at the Prussian , Court
before the outbreak of the present war
A very rich Greek merchant, resident
in Alexandria, had two black wives whom
he loved dearly, and for whose service he
provided a large retinue of beautiful girls.
One of his wives one day chanced to see
a charming white girl, and was so pleased
with ber that she: coaxed her husband
into marrying her. ,
The beautiful slave becamo a confiden
tial servant and companion to her negro
mistresses, and conducted herself toward
them in such a sagacious manner that
she became indispensable to them. She
sang to them, and gossipped and frolicked
so gracefully, that ennui was banished
completely. She won their affection, and,
through them also the affection of her
master, the venerable Greek merchant.
But unfortunnately the black wives
fell siek one day,' and before nightfall
wereboih dead. Their disease was known
to nobody, and they were hastily buried.
The bautiful young slave, who had not
left their side for a moment during the
few hours of their illness, seemed incon
solable. She did hei best, however, to
assuage the grief of the ancient merchant,
and in this way so endeared herself to
him that he adopted her, since he was
just a little too old to marry her. Iu
course of time, the venerable sage rejoin
ed his swarthy wifes in the other world,
and the fortunate nymph came into pos
session of his millions. At this stage of
her existance, Couiit Benedetti who was
then only a penniless attache to the F rench
Consulate in Alexandria, offered her his
hand and heart, and, having mairied her,
with the aid of her wealth cut for himself
a road to fame. In this way, she, who
was ouce a slave to slaves, became a star
in the circles of the French world of
A nice pious old man in Mass., thought
his oxen laid out strength brushing away
flies that might be used hauling the corn
plow, so he tied f bricks to their tails.
The plan worked well until one of the
bricks struck the old man on the head,
when he was carried to tho house on a
door. He said he haden't thought of
this f.ontinrency. The oxen's tails are
loose now, and the old man has had' his
brains soldered in with silver. -
