Margaret was right. Aubroy Kin-
nard needed discipline tho discipline
of sorrow or of poverty, to bring out
his interior resources. lie had talents,
but they lay dormant because there
was no outward necessity for their
uso. He had not genius for that
will nia'-e itself known but he really
had tnlcnts, only that ho did not see
why he should trouble himself with
application to any pursuit when tor-
tuno had saved him tho anxiety of
providing for tho future.
lie had benevolence that transient,
sympathetic benevolence which can
not bear to look upon apparent suffer
ing but no nau not that deep and
wide-spread feeling which prompts to
acts of self sacrifice, and which seeks
for objects on which to expend its en
ergies. That was tho benevolence
which Margaret Ashton would have
l icouraged. Aubrey had seemed to
her as a brother. His father's house
had been her homo from childhood,
and as he had no sister ho enmo to
think of Margaret in that light. Sho
was rich, too, in her own right, hho
was richer, too, in n Btrong and active
mind, a firm will, a steady, iufloxiblo
sense of right, and an aotivo and self
J.ulie ilolbrook was her dearest
friend, and sho had often wished that
Aubrey could know her. Sho was
just such a woman as he ought to
marry, and although averse to match
making in general, shu determined in
this particular case to throw them, if
possible, into each other's society.
ubrey was out ot town lor a tuw
days, and when ho returned, it was to
finil Miss Ilolbrook fairly installed for
ajong visit. Sho was all, and more
than all, that Margaret had so often
painted to him, nut nlnsl sho had tho
obnoxious colored hair 1 True, it was
long, and soft and glossy, and hung
in rich curls on her neck and shout
dei 6, and in all other respects sho was
a lovely nnd nttractivo girl ; but ho
never, no nover, could get over that
objection, ho told Margaret. Ho
begged of her not to talk of him to
her friend, for he could fulfill no
hopes that sho might raise,
"Aubroy 1 l.tllio Ilolbrook would
nover many a man who was so indo
lent and purposeless as yourself. Shu
told mo so hcrsclt.'
"Then yon havo already talked mo
over. Was that kind or dolicato, Mug
giul" "JJnn t bo so nasty, Aubrey. lou
havo never been mentioned m any
way, but wo often converse upon pref
erences nnd tho very charaoter which
you possess was this morning uncon
sciously described by Lillie, nnd her
opinion given. '
Aubrey was piqued nnd fretful, and
as it was a rare mood tor him to bo in
Margaret rather cnioyed it. Sho did
not irritato him by words, but she
looked an that siio leit, ami no saw
alio was thinking of his life, so un
worthy as ho know bIio thought.
At that moment it mado him uu
lust to both Margaret and her friend,
although ho could but acknowledge-
when Ills temper cooled that they
were so different to tho common olass
of young ladies. Thoso with whom
he had been acquainted had flattered
rather than found fault with him, nnd
he found(a tileasant variety from the
fiweets with which ho had been po
often cloyed, in this independent lady
who dared pick Haws in characters
which, no doubt, sho compared to hU.
At any rate it mado him resolvo to
cultivnto her acquaintance more full.
But how should ho do it? Lolling in
his cousin's room nil tho afternoon
hours, whilo they snt nt work, would
not, it seemed, recommend him to
tlioso utilitarian ladies. What exploit
should ho attempt? Ho applied to
Margaret, but she couhl not mark out
any path for him. Ho must think for
There was a long timo in which he
forsook his usual scat in Margaret's
room. Sayings that dropped from
her, and harder still, from her friend,
boro such reproachful bearing upon
tho indolence nnd uselcssuess of his
life, that he felt displeased nnd irrita
ble. "A gocd sign I" said Lillie. "Your
cousin will bo something yet. I knew
there was good metal there, if you
could but strike the right spot."
She had been talking to him of the
grandeur of a life devoted to the in
terests of humanity, self-sacrificing,
active, fearless of rebuke. Sho paint
ed the glory of such a life, as compar
ed with one given up merely to selfish
enjoyment or inactive indolence, lie
applied all her sayings to himself, and
was vexed with himself and with her
whilo he could not but acknowledge
that he deserved it, when his life was
so aimless. Ho could not but own
that his chief purpose was to livo for
his own enjoyment but purely tho
enjoyment of the senses.
And now in his few and transient
visits to his cousin's room, whore tho
two sat in conclave, ho laughingly
told them, upon his faults, ho began
to feel that Lillio Ilolbrook was a wo
man whom n man might both love
and reverenco ; love, for her bounty
and genuine kindness of heart, nnd
roverenco for her noble independence
of mere show and fashion.
"Is not Lillie's hair darker siuco sho
came hero?'1 he asked Margaret one
morning, when, for a great wonder, ho
found his cousin alone.
"Much the same as usual, I think ?"
said Margaret. "Quito red, isn't it ?
And what a pity it is when she is so
"It does not strike mo as being so
very red, Maggie. At least, it is not
the color which I dislike so much. It
seems to me that it is of that shade
called amber by the poets."
"No, Aubrey, poor Lillie's hair is
decidedly red and sho calls it so. She
does not like it any better than you do,
but sho is too wise a girl to quarrel
with nature about tho shado of her
It was all in vain. Aubrey grew
deeper and deeper in love with Lillie
anil one day he made a desperate oiler
of his heart and hand, and was rcfus
od! Kindly and gently, it is trtio,
but decidedly. And she was tlio onlj
woman to whom he had spoken those
words, and she, too, had tho very ob
noxious hair, and had refused him 1
J-le was absent alter this lor some
time. iU'en his father and mother did
not know where he was gone, and
Margaret was quite uneasy. Lillie
nuver disclosed to her friend what had
passed between them ; nor did Mar
caret suspect, when ho returned, hag-
ird ami miserable, that her Iriend
was the cause.
ubicy had other causes, too, of
trouble. A clerk in the bank with
which he was connected was suspected
of wrong. Aubrey had not left town
ns they supposed, but wns watching
him unsuspected, night and day, and
yet the man escaped him. The em
be.zlement covered the whole amount
of Aubrey's property ; and when he
atosu mu next morning ue was a ueg-
gar. Much ot his lathers property in
tho same connection, anil ot his bare
ly enough was left to secure the old
people against tho chances of poverty,
I' ortuuately Jiargarct s lortuno was in
vested elsewhere. Such was the nows
which he had to communicate ; and he
sullercd severely in doing so.
'llio next morning the bank declared
its inilurc. llio embezzlement was
only one of a series of enormous
frauds, practiced by this clerk and an
accomplice, in which thoy wero sue
oessful enough to escnpo detection tin
til it wns too late.
"Where aro you going, Aubrey ?"
asked Margaret, ono morning, a week
after the affair, as sho saw him como
down stairs with his cloak on his arm
and his valise in his hand.
"I sail in tho next steamer to Cali
fornia, cousin. I'm going to Now
York this afternoon."
"And nover told mo until now, Au
broy I I would not thought it of
"I could not bear to talk about my
resolution, Margaret, especially as it
was the hrst ouo that 1 ever mado m
regard to business. I havo not yet
told my mother."
"l'oor auntie i now will sho bear
"Poorly enough nt first, but sho will
get reconciled at last. It was no uso
to prolong her suffering, to I am going
away, and shall then write her just
beforo I sail. I must not havo her
tears shako up my purposo, as I fear
thoy will it 1 tell her now."
"And this Is to bo our good-by ? '
said Margaret, as her coimin pressed
hor hand. "And do you say nothing
"Whero is sho ?"
"In tho drawing-room, alone."
Aubroy mado n movement forward
as if ho would havo gouo in, but ho
camo back to Margaret and charged

The Bioliest Redskins-
Of all the Indians in thu United
States says a correspondent, the Crows
are perhaps the richost, ns thoy eor
tainly arc the laziest. According to
their own estimate thoy number 1,100
women, 770 boys, and 070 girls
3,500 in all, about 300 in excess of
what tho interior department in Wash
ington has it.
The Crows have 4,713,000 acres re
served to them, which comprise somo
of the very best agricultural and graz
ing lands 111 the United States. Tlmir
reservation is in Custer County, Mon
tana, and contains more , land than

lowstone river, with n frontage of
nearly one hundred miles on that

beautiful valleys of the Little and Big
Horn rivers, beside many other rich
meadow lauds made fertile by the nu
merous streams which tako their riso
in tho Big Horn mountains. It is in
deed a beautiful country, and the In
dians know it as well as tho whites do;
for it was in the same beautiful valley

Thoy were hunted by the United

point to point all over Northern Mi.;i
tnun, and finally compelled to capitu
late to Colonel Ilges and the military
at Poplin river on June 7, 1880. As
soon ns the lust Sioux Indian was
made a prisoner, Congress took in
hand the matter of their inheritance,
and by nn agreement made with the
Crows on June 12, 1880 (five day af
ter the surrender), and approved by
Congress on Juno 11, 1882. the Crow
Indians fell heir to the very lauds .tho
Sioux Indians had forfeited by reason
of their being at war with tho United
Stales government. This was the bit
terest pill the Sioux had ever been
forced lo swallow. It distrei-sed them
far mure to me their hated fots estab-Ui-hcd

all the losses they had sustained in tho

themselves. Last year tho Crows put
