At six that evening Dicky stood at a
street corner, with one crust in her bas

Boyond lay a pawnbroker's shop, and
Becky looked at its golden balls and;
her wedding ring, ftholmd worn it fif
teen years, and It was thin and frail,
but pure gold. Through all, she had
kept it -until' now. Must It go? The

looking down, sawn barefoot child, in
wretched rags, sobbing piteoiirly.
Becky was -oil hearted ; but, lu poor
imurters, crying children tiro mmimm
enough, and her own wero walling for
the loavei.in her basket. She walked on
hastily, and so ,,et tho .odd.,,-. Then
Becky ii.-c iN muM -Up and pick 1" .
"Why don't ytui go home to your

"I can't find mania. 1 can't Und my j

Becky kneltdtiwu. A whlto head of

But the child could tell nothing. It
wn- plainly lost. Becky took It In her
mil!.-', and made Inimirles at the corner
crucery, where she bought a slice or
hum ; hut no one knew the child. It
was growing late, ton, and Becky could
not leave it to Its fate.
"I'll tako it home," she saiil.aud "to
morrow find its folks."
Ho, when the cobbler and his children
in their Juvcnilo v!qvs of buch matte,
opinloned that they had another Utile
"It's n poor lost child," wild Becky.
"I'm going to keep it to-night. Its pa
rents are poorer than wo aro: you can

Nick while I cook supper. 1 didn't beg

And then, keeping hor ring-finger out
ofsight, Becky fried the lmui,nnd made
the gravy, and cut the bread, ami sent
for two cents worth of milk which Ju-dlclou-ly
clilutod, made a tmart of milk
and water, and trial to be very cheer

'ami boon coaxed It lo talk ; then came a
story of a blue dress, and a nasty wo
man, Thu youngest, who had chewed tho
red kid, acted interpreter. Hoon it was
discovered that somo person described
as nasty, had laken away the chilli's

Becky listened Intently,
"That dress was blue, Nick," she
cried. 'l know lf-wasn't hers-u tipsy,

Then sho paused the secret was out,
Nick's eyo had glanced toward her wed

"O, Becky!" ho cried. "Becky, wo
jlldn't think ."
Becky tluslicil scarlet.
"I didn't mean to tell," she sa!d,"biit
now Ifi) out; I'm married all the same,

saw the blue dress. And hIio told them

The baby's name seemed to lie Min

all to hcil, all In a row, flke tho little

"I'm right, then," said Becky. "They

till, at last, despairing of un answer,
they were turning homownnl, when n

over them, and they saw on tho steps a
weeping woman and a tall, handsome,
"My precious little Minnie," cried
Then Nick and Betty gavo a sort of
cheer in union. Oh, mum if your name
is Smith, and you've lost a little girl
we've fountl her."
And then then (he cobbler and his
wlfo woro pounced upon nnd the story
In half an hour the six little Ogres,
without crowns were aroused from their
slumbers by an arrival in their midst
aud tlio odd baby wa.s taken out, to
their distress nnd consternation, for
they had counted on keeping her.
And Nick and Betty forgot their
own troubles In tho parents' Joy. And
Mck said It was like poetry.and Becky
said It was like a play 1
And bo It was one with a happy
ending what did the lady do but beg
and pray Becky to tell her what sho
would liko best, and Becky confessed
that to havo her wedding-ring back
wasthehopoofher life; and this led
to the causo of Its pawning and all the
storyof poverty and sorrow. Then the
dark hours ended and tho day broke;
and there was food and Are j and as it
happened, that baby, Mlnnio's father,
needed just such an honost man for
work as jroor Nick could do, ho gavo
th place to tho cobbler; nnd from that
day there was cnougtTaud to spare In
tho little homo, bocauso of tho simple
goodness shown to tho baby Minnie.
"So It's uevcr time thrown away to
do a kindness to any one," says Becky,
often; somehow you are always reward

upon the originnl melody by adding
some variations of his own. But who
has ever seen a real genius succeed yet?
Just ns Mark had finished his only tune
and wound up with an admirable
flourish, tho landlady rushed into his
room. Said sho:
"Do you know another tuno but that
Mr. Twain ?" I told her meekly I did
not. "Well, then," said she, "stick to
It Just as It is ; don't put any variation
to it, because it Is rough enough on Iho
boarders tlio wuy It is now." '
Tho upshot was, that the "roughnerts"
was toon made manifest, for half thtj
boarders left, and tho oilier half would
have left had not tho landlady dis
charged Mark, Then, like tho war,
derlng Jew, Mr. Twain wont frout
house to house. Nono would under
take to keep him after ono night's mu
sic ; so at lost In sheer desperation, ho
went to board"at an Italian latly's-Mrs.
Murphy by naino. Ho says;
The first tlmo I struck up tho variation-,
a haggard.earo-worn,, cadavcroui
old man walked In my room and Btooi
beaming upon mu n smllo of lnoflabla
imppiuess, xnen no pmcoci Ms hand
upon my head, nnd looking devoutly
aloft, ho said with feeling unction, and
in a suicsj iieiuuiuii; wun emotion.
"Uod bless you. vouni? man 1 (1ml 1,1m!
you ! for you have done that for 1116
U'lllell 14 linvntul all nKl.n u.... J-
aso, and knowing my doom wasscalcJl
and that 1 must die, 1 havo striven
with all my power to resign myself to
my futo, but In vain the lovo of life
was too strong within me. Butheavon
bless you, my benefactor I ror slnbeM
heard yon play that tuno and those vi-.
rlntlons.l do not want to live any louifi
cr-l am entirely resigned-1 hid will
ing o die-in Fact, I am anxious to
dlo." And then the old man foil upori
my neck nnd wept a flood of happy'
fears. J was surprised at these thing;
but 1 could not help Riving tho old iwiif
tlcniaii u parting varlatlou. as ho won!
out or tho door. They doubled hlifi
up like a Jack-knire, nnd tho next
time, ho left his bed or palu und suffer!
ho was, all right-In a loeUUlc pofflm. .
At last Mark gave up his i)icAciiU
for the accordeon, und Vrpui ffiOTay
