THE L0"T RING.
T WOULD LIKE TO CIO," pretty
JL Daisy Cochran was Baying, as lier
quick flnger glided over the key board
of her music teacher's piano. " I know
John will be so disappointed If I do not,
but 1 really and truly have nothing to
" But John knows you are not rich."
" Oh, yes ; John would not care if I
went In a, calico dress and gingham
apron, but but please don't think It is
false pride, but all his family will be
there, and you know they all look down
upon me because mother has to keep
boarders, and John is rich. I don't
mean all, because his mother is very
kind to me. But I would not like to
shame John by being shabby, and I can
not ask mother for even the price of a
tarletan, till she gets ahead a little."
" I see. But your pretty pink dressV"
" Came to grief at my last party. One
of the gentlemen upset Ice eream all
down one side, and dresses are so cut up
now-a-days, you can't alter them one
bit. Why, Miss Pattison, that very
dress was one of mother's, and there
were so many long, full widths In it,
that we easily made dress and overskirt,
with miles of ruflling, out of the skirt.
To be sure, mother 1b very tall, and I
small, but I am sure none of the dresses
she wears now could be altered for me."
While Daisy was speaking, Miss Pat
tison, her music teacher, was looking at
the pretty face, the soft blue eyes and
flossy curls, and thinking.
" It is useless to me, and as she says,
there Is plenty of material for a modern
dress in an old-fashioned skirt, I have
kept it, to be sure, for many years, but
after all "
And here she spoke, hesitatingly:
" Daisy, I have a dress I shall never
wear again, that I should like to see you
dressed In for Mrs. Ransom's party."
" But "
" But," half sadly, half merrily, "you
will not mind accepting it from such an
old friend as I am, or from one who loves
you as dearly as I do. I will show it to
She arose as she spoke, and opening a
closet in the room, look from a trunk
there an opal silk. It was certainly
old-fashioned, with a wide skirt,flounced
to the waist, offering material for a mod
ern costume of most elaborate style.
" Oh," little Daisy said, " It is lovely !
And the waist Is plain, scarcely needs
any alteration. Only, Miss Pattison, this
is real lace In the deep bertha."
" Yes, dear. You can easily make a
modern fichu of that."
" It is so kind to give It to me," said
Daisy. " For I do want to go on Wed
nesday, more than I can tell you. And
oh, Miss Pittison, we have a new board
er. He came this morning, and took
the two second story front rooms. I did
not hear his name, but he is an elderly
man, with a face that Is pleasant and
yet very sad. A good face, but sorrow
ful I I know I shall like him."
" I am glad the rooms are taken."
" Yes, indeed, for they have been va
cant nearly six months, and that is the
reason mother is so straightened. But I
hope now she will get along better. Oh,
dear 1 I hate being poor I I would love
John if he was a pauper, and marry
him, but I am glad he is rich, too. He
promised to be ever so good to mother,
and he loves her as much as I love his
mother. Only his other relatives think
he is foolish to marry a poor girl. Miss
Pattison," thiB hesitatingly. " Were you
ever in Jove?"
" Yes, dear. When I wore this dress,
twenty years ago, I wore it to please eyes
as loving and tender as John's will bo
for you ! Mother, I too had a mother
then, Daisy, told me opal was an un
lucky color, but the dress pleased me,
and being a spoiled, wilful child, I bought
" But was it unlucky "
" Dear child, if I did not believe that
to be all nonsense, I would never give
that dress to you. But on the evening
I wore that dress, the first cloud arose
upon a life that had been all happiness
before. We all have our troubles. Mine
began then, in a separation from the
only man I ever loved. I have kept
that love in my heart all these years,
Daisy, though I have never seen my
lover, never heard from him."
" Please tell me all about It," pleaded
Daisy. . .
" Shall I tell you, dear V .. It . is long
since I spoke of It. I wasan only child,
Daisy, and my father, although never
a wealthy man, had a handsome salary.
We were in a good social 'Circle, audi
bad ahl the gaiety and finery a young
heart could niesire ; and I bod suitors
too, dear, in those days, but my whole
love was given to one, Walter well,
never mind his other name. While I
loved him only, 1 had other friends, and
fine Clarence Fink, loved me, though I
I never had suspected it until the eve
ning when I wore the opal silk."
"It was-roy birthday, my eighteenth
birthday, and I bad ft large party of my
own .young friend. I was Intensely
"Only that waoruing Walter hod
brought me a choice basket of flowers,
and had told me his love, asking me to
be his wife. Upon my flnger was his
betrothal ring, a large pearl encircled by
diamonds. It was a trifle too large, but
after Walter put It on with loving words
I would not let him take It off, promis
ing to buy a guard for it the next day.
"The evening was half over, when
Clarence, who had been waltzing with
me, drew me into a small room leading
out of the crowded parlors,andto my un
feigned surprise told me he loved me.
"He had never before been in a vposl
tion to marry, but on that day he had
been offered a position in Cincinnati
that would give him a liberal salary.
" I was shocked and bewildered when
he asked me to be his wife ; but, Daisy
I had known him all my life, he was
like a dear brother to me, and I could
not dismiss him harshly. Even when
my own sorrow came, I had no self-reproach
because I tried to soften my re
fusal by words of sincere friendship and
" I lot him take my hand in his and
press his lips upon my forehead in a
fnrewell caress. But, as he did so,
Walter, coming to seek me, saw him,
and misinterpreted the action.
" He spoke harshly, and suddenly
pointing to my flnger, assused me of
having given my betrothal ring to Clar
ence. " Bewildered and half angry; I looked
at ray hand. The ring was gone ! All
my frantic search through the room was
treated with quiet contempt,as a piece of
"But did Clarence take the ring?"
asked Daisy, breathlessly.
'' My dear, I do not know. We could
not find it. Clarence died in Cincinnati.
Walter left me In hot anger, and never
returned. My life was soon a Bhadowed
one ; I lost both parents, and am now,at
thirty-eight, a little old niad music
teacher, moderately contented, with an
income sufficient for my wants, and "
here Miss Pattison smiled" very fond
of my young friend, Daisy."
Daisy's mother was quite as much
pleased and excited as the little maiden
herself when she saw the handsome gift
from Miss Pattison, and an animated
discussion, as to the best manner of alter
ing the dress, resulted in a decision to
rip it apart and remake it.
It did not trouble mother or daughter,
that their new boarder was seated in the
parlor when they brought their work to
the table in the evening. He was quite
at the other end of the room, reading a
newspaper, while they carefully cut the
stitches that held the pretty opal silk
They were, however, somewhat con
fused and surprised when he sauntered
across the parlor, and took a seat near
them, saying, sadly :
" Opal silk ! It is many years since I
saw one to notice it. They say opals are"
unlucky. Your pretty silk may -bring
you misfortune, Miss Daisy."
Daisy blushed shyly, and yet the sug
gestion troubled her. The silk had been
worn when Miss Fattison's love dream
had so rude a waking I Perhaps
And just here Daisy gave a little start
and a cry, as the point of iier scissors
touched something hard, that rolled
from them, down the folds of shining
silk, and across the floor.
"WThat could It beV Mrs. Cochran
asked, looking up from her work. But
Daisy, all excitement, had thrown aside
the dress, and was stooping to pick up
the glittering treasure her scissors ,h"4
released from long Imprisonment.
" Oh, mother!" she cried, quite for
getting the new boarder. " It is Miss
"Whose ring V"
Not her mother's voice asking thls.but
a man's voice, harsh and loud.
" Whose ring did you say r"" he repeat
ed, as Daisy only looked surprised and
did not answer.
" A friend's'," Daisy answered, at last.
" Miss Pattison ! You said Miss Pat
tison 1 And you found it In the opal
silk dress I Tell me, has the ring a large
pearl In it, encircled by diamonds, and
lettering inside W. M. to E. P.y
"Yes," Daisy said, wonderingly, after
having examined the ring.
"Walter Marty n to Ella Pattison!"
"Walter!" said Daisy "yes, his
name was Walter !"
" She told you something your friend
Miss Pattison ! You wonder at me.
Dear child," and the voice of the crey
haired man was low and tender, " I am
Walter Martyn, and that ring was my
betrothal ring, twenty years ago I"
It was strange to see him, the grave,
elderly man, trembling and flushed, his
hand renting on the opal silk, his eyes
fixed on the ring.
"Twenty years ago!" he repeated,
" I was married, was widowed, traveled
abroad, went everywhere, nd had my
share of happiness and sorrow, made a
fortune, and came home ttt last, only yes
terday, to find " here lie sighed heav

will you tell me what Ella, Miss Pattison
told you, that you knew her lostrlng so
And llttly Daisy, her heart fluttering
over this strange romance of mlddlevago,
repeated the story she had heard. Mr.
Martyn listened with his head resting
upon his hand, shaded from the bright
light. When the story was finished, he
" Thank you," he said, gently ; " will
you give me Miss Pattison's address
and the ring ?"
Very promptly Daisy granted both
requests, but smiled, and shook her head
as he added :
" And don't wear opal Bilk."
" I am not so silly as that," she said,
to Mrs. Cochran, when the new boarder
left the room.
" I am not afraid John will quarrel
with me because my dress is an opal
She was still working busily upon the
work of altering the dress, when the
new boarder came In again, and put a
porcel and tiny note before her wonder
ing eyes. She looked into his face, won
dering at the change there, the soft
light in tli6 sad eyes, the smile upon the
" She has forgiven me, little Daisy,"
he said, very tenderly, and left her
" Open your note, dear," Mrs. Coch
ran Bald, and Daisy, obeying, read the
lines written there by a hand trembling
with happiness :
" Dear Dear Daisy :
You have sent me my life's
happiness, and the opal silk has changed
twenty years of pain to deepest joy. But
Walter says you are not to wear it, and
so we have chosen together the turquoise
silk In the parcel, for blue brings hap
piness ! You will accept the drees, dear,
will you not, from your loving friends,
Walter and Ella V"
" Oh, how lovely I" Daisy cried, shak
ing out the folds of the silk ; " is she not
And very lovely Daisy looked, when,
with a demure courtesy, she said to John:

A Widow's Windfall-News From the Dead,
About two years ago a man by the
name of John Olenheimer, a German,
was suddenly and mysteriously missing
from Washington village, Jersey City.
He was known to have some money
on his person when last seen, and as no
tidings from him came, his friends, the
police and the public generally settled
down to the belief that he had been mur
He left a family, consisting of a wife
and six children, the youngest child but
a few weeks old and the oldest a girl
scarcely 13 years. Tired of waiting they
soon mourned for their protector as dead,
and the mother set about the real prob
lem of providing for the family. They
had been left quite destitute. She part
ed with a portion of their household
goods, took cheaper quarters, and up to
within a week has kept the wolf from
the door by taking in washing and
" It has been a terrible struggle," said
she to a Journal reporter yesterday ,"but
I have managed to keep my little ones
from starving by my own labor until
last week. I broke completely down ;
there was nothing for us to eat, and for
the first time I called on the Poormaster
Yesterday morning as this little fami
ly were seated at their frugal breakfast
of porridge, the postman left a letter ad
dressed to the widow of John Olenheim
er. It bore the stamp of the United
States Treasurer and was sealed 'with
wax. It contained official notice from
the Treasury Department in Washing
ton that a United States Consul in Aus
tralia had forwarded to the Department
a trunk filled with, the effects of her late
husband, who had died in that country.
Along with this property was also four
thousand dollars in gold.
What a Tramp Did.
A remarkable incident occured at the
fire which took place on Jersey City
Heights last Saturday night. Some
sparks from the burning building fell
on the roof of another house not far
distant, and the shingles were soon
ablaze. There was not the slightest
danger, however, for the firemen quick,
ly discovered the flame, and a single
stream of water extinguished It. But a
tramp took ad vantage of the opportunity
In the following manner: The first to
discover the new flame, he ran to the
front of the house, and with a powerful
kick broke in the door. Then, darting
up the stairs, he rushed Into the room
of the lady living there, and, taking a
little child from his cradle, shouted to
the terrified woman that the house was
on fire and for her to save herself. She
sprang from her bed, ran to a hiding
place for her pocket book and started
toward the door. The tramp took- the
money from her hand and ran quickly
down stairs and out Into the street. He
had gone but a short distance when,
seeing a group of women in front of a '
house, he approached them, and hand
ing one of them the child, exclaimed :
" Here, take It ; I saved the pretty little
thing from the burning building." He
then disappeared and has not been seen
The Devil Gets His Duo.
On Sunday, the 15th ult., In the town
of Maple Grove, In Manitowoc co.,WIs.,
a singular and fatal occurrence took
place. It being Sunday, the people of
the neighborhood had generally gone to
church, leaving, as is the custom only
one or two of the family at home to
guard the premises. At the house where
it occurred, only a boy of about 12 years
old was at home. A man went to the
house completely enveloped in a beef
hide, with horns, and tail complete, and
so fitted that nothing else could be seen.
It was known in the neighborhood that
the occupants of this house had money,
and there was at the time about $200 on
the premises. The man disguised in
the hide told the boy that he was the
devil, and that he had come after his
money, and that the boy must give it
him. The boy answered that he would
not give the money, lhe devil then
told the boy that he would kill him If he
did not bring out the money. The boy
then stepped into the house as if he was
about to comply, but instead of bringing
the money he brought the gun and shot
the man dead. The boy then ran to the
nearest neighbor, and finding only a
woman there, told her that he had shot
the devil. The woman went with the
boy, and found that the devil whom the
boy had shot was her husband.
Wanted to be Treated.
A San Francisco corn doctor was sum
moned by a man who lived four miles
out of the city. Hastily gathering up
his instruments, flies and acids, he walk- .
ed through the pouring rain to the ad
dress indicated, and was shown into the
parlor. The physician sent up his card,
and shortly after the door opened, and a
florid man with unsteady legs, entered
"How do, Doc? Take a seat. Didn't
think you'd come out in this rain, but
you're a regular brick, and I knew it
when I read your card. I wish you'd
come and live out here. The whole
neighborhood are a set of darned teS-
The practitioner opened his case of in
struments, and asked his patient to put
his foot on a chair. The man assented,
remarking that he never felt more com
fortable in his life. He resented, how
ever, all efforts of the doctor to pull off
his socks, and threatened to shoot him
for attempting to haul his boots off. f
" How can I treat you unless I see
your corns V" cried the chiropodist.
"Corns be Mowed!" answered the
dweller in the suburbs. " I ain't got no
corns! Don't your card .say, 'Gentle
men treated at their own residences?'
and I sent to you because I'm out of
liquor, and want some brandy pretty
There was a cry of anguish as the doc
tor took his largest file and rubbed all
the skin off his patient's nose.
An Adroit Preacher.
. A story is told of the preacher of a
hospital Sunday sermon, in illustration
of the wisdom of the serpent that is
sometimes exhibited by divines. In a
district inhabited by wealthy people,but
mostly connected with trade, and in
which " commercial credit" is every
thing, the clergyman in question pre
faced his discourse with these words:
" Before commencing my appeal to your
purses, my friends, I will mention a case
of conscience which has been put to me
this morning by an esteemed member of
this congregation. He is, he says, to
all appearances a rich man, but in re
ality is on the verge of bankruptcy.
He would wish to put his X5 note into
the collecting plate as usual ; but would
it be honest, he asks, seeing that what
money he has left is, in fact, his credit
ors' and not bis own. I have advised
him, dear friends, not to give; and if
any of you are in similar unhappy
plight, I also say, Be Just before you
are generous.' Those in good circum
stances will, on the other band, give ac
cording to their means." It is said that
so many 5 notes were never seen in the
collection plate before a on the occasion
of that sagacious appeal. ,
Or When a thing is once begun it is
almost half finished.; ' t,
