The recent revelations .
deed foraeries at a criminal trial in
Chicago, , reminded me of an incident
that occurred a few weeks ago in the
vicinity otSt. Louis, that seems to
me to he Worth relating,
Clara.. and Mary Nterwin, sisters
and orpliao. were inithe sittinzToom
of their phiitsant hoe oh the `edgeof
a village near the Missouri, - Their
mother bad ; been dead Aeverni rears :
their father; had lately died, leavin! , estate. as they ;•lipposed. of
the value Ql' ;iome forty thousand
dollars. but they had-learned quite
recently that it was encumbered to
such an extent that they were likely
to be deprived of:it all: This dis
covery. :tA May be supposed. filled
them with anxiety and sorrow, and
they were heated in silence. unable'
to read. to converse. to work, to 'do
anything 'brood;.over their areat
While they were thus occupied .
with sombrr. thoWilits. a buggy drove
up in front of thc house-. and a man
alighted. and the buggy drOve away.
The man!mast haVe been a little
on the shady side or filly: to judge
frthll his fzniyliairs.althott ! th his thee
was fresh and unwrinkled. He was
dre4cd with remarkable neatness:,
and his thee. indicated briskness. a s

he said. smiling and bowing in a
courtly manner —" Abner Pierce.

murmured Clara.
" Thank yOu. I happent;t Ito hear

the belief that I icon assist you.

'Clara Mervin. who was the elder
the orphans and leader in even - -
thin". t 01.4 how she and her sister
had taken 4cltet s 'of administrltion
ti pop their father's' ! estate. when - tt
man of whom they had never benne
heard put in an appearance. and pre
sented a mortgage, with bond includ
ed. executed by the late Mr. Melvin:,
upon his real estate, for the stun of
forty thousand dollars. Not cOntent
with prohibiting them front :attempt
ing to sell anything, lw had tied up
their money in the Itank, leaving them
absolutely penniless. They had used
their credit. brit tradesmen were be
coming impatient. and some had re
fused - supply them any further
without pat - .
" That is a bad case," said •••Mr.-
Pierce. ....You need money--sthat is
the first thing Otte attended ti:. You
must_let me act as your banker until
I get you out of "this scrape. and that
won't be long, I hope. How much
do you owe?"
" More than :one hundred dollars,"
answered Clara. •
The old gentleman counted out
two hundred dollars from a wellstilled.
pocket-book, and handed it to her.
" For your mother's sake," he said,
when she refused to receive it, and
he forced it uphill her in.such a way
ft - 4 she could not help taking it., Ile
theh accepted the young ladies' invi
tation to make their house his home
during his stay, and went in to dinner
With them.
" Is, there any place where I Can
stroke ?" he asked, when they bad
returned to the sitting-room.
" You can smoke here," said the.
impulsive Mary'::: Paldways smoked
here. and we are used to it."
So he took a meerschaum and some.
tobacco from his valise, and was soon
pulling away with .an air of great
contentment.' .
" I can think better when I smoke,"
he said. "Did :you have any legal
advice in the matter of that mort
gage. MisS Mer Win ?"
Yes, sir," replied Clara. " Our
liwyer said that it was a plain case
against us, although it was strange
that we had never heard of the-mort
gage before." ,
" Very strange, What is the name
of the man who holds it ?".

Mr. Alexander Campbell called in
the course of the afternoon, and was
made acquainted with Abner Nettie,
at whom he looked suspiciously; but
his eyes fell. when he met..the Old
gentleman's intent gaze. Mr. Pierce
glanced but slightly at the deed that

Mr. Campbell assented to this and.

brought him 'a light.

sighing for an education, capital, or
friends, and declaring) that " if he on

let him remember that, as 'Horace

wrong end of the telescope ; that. if

of which the world is so full—one of
the subjunctive heroes, who always

can understand—let him be in- the
imperative mood, and do that of
which his talents arc indicative.
