When 1 lirst met liim in the c-orriiliir
of tlio lioiel 1 notit-eil on his cnivnt n
curious pin which nt once iittrneteil my
nttention In form it wim oviil, abont it
qnnrter of rtn Inch in IchkIIi, rhiKtoluto
in color, and in the dim light of the hull
deemed highly polished. It lein do dif
ferent from the usual searfpin, I asked
him where he "t it. Ho did not reply
toiny iuostion, but taking the pin from
his tio handed it to me. Upon examin
ing it 1 found itH surfm.-e covered with
what I took to bo Egyptian hieroglyph
ics. Having given no little attention to
tho study of t heso curious signs, my in
terest was at once aroused, and I ex
pressed a desire to keep it for a few
days in order to examine it with a glass.
Dut Melville, with n strange smile, took
it without a word and put it back In his
cravat, mid 1 of course did not insist on
A few days later Melville met mo in
the corridor, stopped mo and said that
by the morning paper he had noticed
that tlio day befm-o an acquaintance of
his, having lost his hint napoleon in the
Casino, had committed suicide at Monto
Curio: that ho believed ho wits the only
person in Europe who know the unfor
tunate gambler, and he hud decided to
go to Monte Curio and care for the body.
While we were talking we had walked
to the front of the hotel, and Melville
had called a cab. Just beforo he got in
he handed me his cravat pin, and with a
smilo said 1 could examine it while he
was gone, and as he drove oil ho called
back that he would ho back in a few
days and continued me to be careful of
Two weeks from that day I received a
telegram from Melville saying he would
be back tliut evening and asking tne to
proenre seats for "Faust" at the Grand
Opera. In the uicuntime I hud given
considerable attention to the pin ami hud
concluded that it was without doubt u
gonuino Egyptian charm or fetich not
less than 8,0(10 years old. fcucli tttoues
beiug very rare and valuable, I was sur
prised that my friend had intrusted it to
mo at all, and 1 wus anxious to luarn
where ho had obtained so great a curi
osity. That afternoon I determined to take
a wulk in the garden of tho TuillcricH,
which is not fur from tho Normuudie.
After an exhilarating wulk 1 had taken
a seat and drawn a book from tny pock
et, intending to read un hour before re
turning for dinner, but my attention was
soon drawn from my book by u young
lady sitting diagonally ucrosa the prom
enade from me. She hud taken the seat
soon after I nut dowu, and was looking
in such a direction that 1 could get only
a prolilo viow of her face, which seemed
strangely familiar to me. After reading
and watching alternately for half an
hour 1 determined to got a better view
of her face in ordor to decide whether I
was mistaken in my idea that I had seen
As I started toward her the rose and
walked in the same direction. I had fol
lowed her perhaps 80 yards when she
stumbled, and the next instant with a
groun fell to the ground. As quickly as
possible I had lifted her np and helped
tier to a seat near by. I then asked her
if I should call assistance, but she said it
would not be necessary as she would be
all right in a moment, although she
would be glad if I would remain with
nor. Such a request 1 conld not refuse,
nor did I care to, aa I had discovered she
was quite pretty, and from her accent I
knew she was an American.
When in a few minutes I asked her if
1 should call a cab, she thanked me and
asked if 1 would not be kind enough to
drive with her to 74 Rue de Blanc,
street not far away on which 1 kw
were situated a large number of fashion
able pensions or bourding houses, Un
the way she told me that her home was
in Massachusetts, and with her father
and brother she was making a long stay
in Puris. When we reached her number,
she Insisted that 1 go in and meet her fa
ther, and I of course agreed.
As soon as I had paid the cabman and
giten him three times the usual gratu
ity I followed my fair and new found
friend Into the parlor, where I remnlnel
tvhilo she went to Iind her father. Hli"
(illicitly returned, wiytiig Hint ho was
out. lint would return In a short time,
and Hint If I would wait she would try
to ( titei tain ttie. Inwardly thanking tlifi
old t;eiitletn:in f"f b"ing w considerate.
I tins much pleaned to wait.
The time passed pleasantly mid rapid
ly. i;t-.d I thought nothing of fun father's
I reli eved nlif etti (, but suddenly I r- -it
c. ttliered Melville mid the opera, looked
r.t My wntcli and found thut 1 hud bare
! tine to get dinner, meet ttiy friend
and reach tho play. 1 v.t. very sorry
that I could not wuit longer, and at her
requent I promised to call tho next after
noon at I).
Rising to go, 1 took tny hut and was
about to open tlio door, when 1 was much
surprised to find a pair of arms u round
my neck. Half angry and wholly umozed
I hardly knew wlmt to do, but hearing a
step without in an instant I had slipped
from her embrace mid opened tho door.
Coming up tho steps was n middle aged
gentleman, at tlieM ,l:t of whom tho ,irl
shrieked mid ran down thy hall, Tho
gentleman stopped me mid ioi!;ed how I
happened t bo with Hint lady. I told
liim that I hud met lu r in liin garden,
Lad brought her to this homo mid hi'd
waited to meet her father.
Ho smiled sadly mid n id lie had just
left notice at tho police l:en'l';ti:irters to
havo the entiro fun o (,n l.'io I .limit for
her; Ihut two months hefi t" I . r brut hot
had been lout in iitteiiipling Hie ascent
of tho Mntterhorn, mid siiire that tinm
she had been n tiiaualc; he was keeping
her conlined iuasuiloof roottm ut tliis
house, hoping tlmt etitiro rest wonhl re
store her reason. Ho thanked mo for
what I had douo and asked me to call
thn next afternoon.
Having eaten my dinner very rapidly,
I met Melville and wo went to thu icru.
During tho time between nets ho told
me of his sad trip to Monto Carlo, and it
was not until wo wero slowly walking
tip tho Avenue do lOporn that 1 told him
of my unusual experience of tho after
noon. With a shade of that buuio strange
smilo I had before noticed he asked me
the apiiearanco of the man, and when i
doecribed him he half muttered, "I
thought so." Nothing more wus said
for several blocks, when ho suddenly
asked, the smilo beiug fully developed,
"And whoro is my pin?" 1 put my hand
to my cravat tho pin was gone! 1 know
thut I had worn it in tho afternoon, and
now it was missing. Melville noticed my
surprise and said again, "I thought so.
After walking a moment in silence he
continued: "That pin wus very highly
valued by one of Europe's most noted
gamblers. Koine tnotithsugo, on uccount
of severe losses, ho was compelled to purt
with it at a very low figuro, as its real
value was not known, 1 recently dis
covered it in a pawnshop, rccoguizod it
as having belonged to this gambler und
bought it for the ridiculous price of 10
napoleons. Olio day 1 met its fonnei
owner in the hotel. Ho recognized the
pin on my tie, looked wistfully at it, but
said nothing. Boveral times after that I
noticed a rather pretty young lady
watching mo vory closely. You have
perfectly described botli this woman sad
the gambler Now you know whore tny
1 said nothing; what could I say?
lint tho next day 1 called at 74 at the
appointed hour. When I presontod my
card and ubkod for tlio gentleman, the
reply came: "Zn zhnutheinau au hoei
daughter go decs inoruin. but ze zhon
theuiuu leave ze note for inonieur."
And she handed me uu envelope :ontuin
ing a thousand franc note, upon one
corner of which was written, "Many
thanks for tho pin." Both Melville and
I wore satisiiod. T. C. B. in Pittsburg

The elections of lust November, like
those in November, 18110, wero in tho
nature of a popular revolution. Mr
Cleveland Is tho man above nil others
upon whom the great majority of tho
American people rely to carry ont tho
purposes and accomplish tho objects of
that revolntion. With this view they
have already overridden the political
"machine," and before they will permit,
themselves to be thwarted or cheated
Ihoy will grind it into powder. To pluce
Ur. Cleveland again in the president's
(hair they have disregarded all the tradi
tions, the precedents, the counsels and
the warnings of the so called party man
igors and bosses. Before they will allow
Mr. Cleveland to be hindered or embar
rassed in the work which they have set
him to do they will chaso the same
would be "bosses" ami masters of the
people out of office andout of public life.
It is creditable to the sagacity of the
men at tho head of the most powerful
political organization within the limits
it the party to be the first to recognize
the true nature and significance of tho
lituation and to proclaim their readiness
md intention to abide by it. By adher
ing to this polite course after the 4th of
March Tammany will only be giving ad
ditional proof of the shrewdness which
fuided its course after the Chicago con
vention nominated not Hill, but Clove

WOMEN GET OFF CAR9 BACKWARD.

After the woman had rolled over two
or three times in toe dust and Inadi-n
voluniiiiiitiHdisplay of lingerie, she at nig
gled to her feet. Iter face was very red,
her back hair wiih terribly mussed atul
her draperies in most inartistic disorder,
fciho scornfully refused to givo her niitno
to tho conductor, who rushed to her as
sistance, and would not say whether she
was hurt. As she turned to walk away
the conductor whistled "go ahead," and
smiles began to show among the passen
gers. "She's likeall tho rest of 'cut," was the
contemptuous comment of the conductor
ns ho jumped on tho car.
"1 never knew n conductor who
Btopiied his train at tho right place,"
sneered n fat woman who overheard tho
conductor's remark. "It's the greatest
wonder in tho world that more people
nro not killed by thecarelessnessof them
conductors. They haven't a bit of ac
commodation in their souls,"
"Did yon hear that woinunr" inquired
another passenger. "Klio blames tho
conductor for thut woman's tumble and
will in nil probability alight from tho
cur backward when sho reaches her
destination. I have been n eloso ob
server of this pervers" habit of women
who ride on the ptni t cars, mid belicvo
that I have solved the problem.
"Why do liny turn their faces tho
wrong way? I saw a theory advanced
thoollii-r day in a newspaper that left
handed women were never seen to take
a tumble licrntise their stronger ami
aided them to retain their Imlaucu when
alighting. Hut it really makes no differ
ence whether u woman is left or right
handed. .She gets on u cur und tells the
conductor to let her off ut Twenty-first
street. She has been down town shop
ping and is in a hurry to reach home.
"All tho time the cable is pulling her
homeward she keeps thinking of how
much slio will have to do when her jour
ney is ended. The conductor yells
"She is aroused with a sturt from lu r j
study, intent only on getting off tho car.
You have noticed, no doubt, thut a cable
truin always pusses a crossing before it
stops. There is tho whole secret of a I
woman's many tumbles. She would be j
safe and happy if the conductor would i
only stop tho train so she conld step off
at tho right spot exactly. But tho cur
passes tho crossing, and unconsciously j
she turns her face in tho direction sho i
wishes to go. If sho would wait until I
the cur stops all would be well, but the i
thought that sho is being carried past her
destination makes her hurry. Before thu j
cur stops, sho thinks of tho few extra j
steps sho will huve to tuko if sho is i
carried uny farther and imnus off. I
You know tho rest, and there is tho true
reason why 08 women in 100 get off a
street car backward. Tho 100th woman
is on tho real seat of the lust car and
steps off ut the right pluce." Chicngo
A Valuable Team.
The man from Suginaw was visiting
the national capital to see the sighti.
One day, on Pennsylvania avenue, he
saw a heavy, close, dark wagon, more
like a black tnaria than anything else,
and asked his guide what it was.
"It's rather strange alxmt thut," said
the guide in the slowly didactic, style.
"You've been talking about the salaries
of officials here, from the president's
$."0,000 a year down, but do yon know
the horses to thut wagon beat them allr"
"Thut so'" said the Bnginawster.
"They lon't look like they could earn
moro than a day anyhow. I've got
( better horses than that to Lire at $5 a
duy and feed.
The guide looktxl at his charge with
'Why, my dear sir," he explained,
"those horses draw millions from tho
treasury every year."
The Suginaw luim wouldn't have it
and said so with profano emphasis.
"But it is time nevertheless," insisted
tho guide, "That's tho wagon they haul
the gold and silver in," und tlio Sagi
nawster looked ut it steadily. Detroit

- in confirmation of thu saying that
"spelling comes by nature" the case may
bo.cited of a certain little girl, 6 years
old. whoso parents are both good poll
ers. At school recently she was given
to write out a list of 78 words, which
contained many rather hard ones, such
as "hatchet," "receive," "neighbor" and
so on. She spelled every word correctly
and was the only scholar in the school
who -did so.
Now and tken it happens, however,
that .the child of a ffcmoua sjKller breaks

rigibly bad speller. In such a cose the
disappointed parent may console himself
with the reflection that the child inherits
his bad spelling from a grandparent, or
even from some more remote ancestor.

"Nothing seemed to givo lr. Brook
greater pleasure," said .Mr. Thomas II.
Howard, the superintendent of St. An

near him. He liked to getol'r' in one cor

piny with and fondle them.
"I remember one instance," continued
Mr. Howard, with a faint smile, "when
Dr. Hrool.s disarranged our plans com
pletely, mid this disarrangement almost
resulted in n nninll riot. Ho always at

commenced to unload the tree of its

A Philadelphia gentleman hasa canary
that he cells Noah. He allows Noah an
occasional free flight in the garden. Ono
day when time was up tho bird declined
to como into the house or be taken, but
when approached flew off a space. Ho
would then tly back, still declining to lie
taken in. At last his performance in
duced his owner to go out and follow.
At once he burst into a joyful song und
flew away, keeping a few feet ahead and
looking back coaxingly.
"1 followed, and ho led mo to a rose
bush at tho other end of tho garden, but
I could not see whut brought him until,
with a series of loud staccato notes, he
flow down besidea heap of yellow leaves.
Then 1 saw laying there what I took to
bo a dead canary, bnt when I stooped
and took it in my bund it feebly stirred.
It hud evidently been out all night and
was nearly frozen. Noah wus delighted
and would fly from mo buck to tho in
valid in his bed of course cotton 20
times a minute, trilling hi prettiest
songs and chirping, as if to suy, -How
are you feeling now. brother''" Here is
this sweet spirit of helpful love of others

Are Vim Left F.yeil or Itlglit Kyedf
There are but few ambidexters, either
in the matter of hands, feet or eyes. It
may sound rother queer, but it i a fact
nevertheless, that 85 out of every 100
human being are right handod. left
j legged and left eyed.
I Felix Hement, who knows more uliout
i eyes in a minute than half of the opti
cians and oculists of the country have
been able to learn in a lifetime, re
marked that it is an established fact that
we all use one eye more than we do the
other, which establishes as clear a case
of "left and right eyedness" as though
the same terms were used to denote a
preference in the nse of hands and feet.
If you want to decide as to whether
your friends or relatives are right or left
eyed, give them a small telescope or spy
glass to look through or have them take
"aim" with a gun. We all take great
interest in ascertaining the color, size,
shape and visual powers of our children's
eyes, but how many of us stop to con
sider whether they are "right" or "left
eyed?" St. Louis Republic.
Jy Cloultl In Iceland.
Marie Jonrean writes me that when
she wit traveling in Iceland sho found
that of all our great countrymen tho
oj.ly one who seemed to be familiar to
the Icelanders was Jay Gould, (me of
tli6 first questions her native guide asked
her on learning that she was trom Amer
ica wan: "You come from America. Per
haps, then, yon know Jay Gould? And
has he really more money than he can
ve count'" Even far in the interior of
tho island, where the people could speak
no English, they begged the guide to ask
her if she really knew or had ever seen
the wonderful Ctobsus, who to them was
like some prince from the "Arabian

It was a good man, Christopher Sower,
who made the first punches and matrices
md cast the first typo hi America. The
nnvil he made them on is still preserved.
They were for a German Bible which be
published. "The price of our newly fin
ished Bible, in plain binding, with a
clasp, will be 18 shillings," he said, "bnt
to the poor and needy we have no price,"
John the Baptist sent the message to
Christ. "Art thou he that should come,
or do we look for auother?" end Jesus
sent back word, "Tho poor have the gos
pel preached to them." Sower's Ger
man Bible was printed in 1743 and was
the first Bible published in America in

Education Slay Not Frodu je Ueauty
It may be doubted. urai.f.'o as many
may deem the assertion, vhether con
tinuous education will produce beauty,
whethor the growth of intelligence will

which we notice the authors of Utopias
