In the slimy bed of s1ueIsh mere
Its root had humble bIrth ,
And the slender stem that upward crew
Was coarse of fiber , dull of hue.
With naught of grace or worth.
The goldflsh that floated near
Saw alone the yular item.
The clumsy turtle paddled by ,
The water snake with lidless eye-
It was only a weed to them
Butthe butterfly and honey bee ,
The sun nncl sky and air.
They marked It heart of vlrin gold
Inthe sutin leaves of spotle3 fold ,
And Its odor rich and rare.
So the frazrant soul In ftc purity ,
To sordid lifo tied down.
May bloom to heaven and no man know ,

"Mrs. Nevi ] in , an unaccountable
pang at he heart , pressed all her
remaining biscuits into the baby's
hands ; told the woman to call upon
her next day ; heard next day the
child was an orphan ; . and the end of
it was. took her to her house and
heart , to the intense disgust of
flumerous nieces and nephews , who
had looked on Mrs. Neville as their
joint prey. There you have the
whole history , I believe. "
"It's a4verystrange story ; she must
have seen a great many pretty cliii-
dren besides this particular one.
Why did she choose her ? "
"Fancied sh saw in her some resemblance -
semblance to a dead sister. that was
very fondly and even extravagantly
regretted-your aunt. Mrs Penrud-
dock , i : supPose , as she hadn't another -
other aister that I ever heard of. "
"If she-the young lady above-is
like :1llis. : Ncville's sister , Mrs. Nev-
jib must be very.unlike her own peo-
pie , " says the young man , slowly.
"Yet , strange to say , that girl is
most absurdly like a portraitof MrS.
Peuruddock that hangs in the small
drawing room in South Audley street ,
where Mrs. Nevihle lives. Not that
there is anything so very remarkable -
ble in that ; one sees chance resemblances -
blances every day. But you being
one of the family. should see this
likeness yourself.
"No ; I have no recollection 01

ways on bad terms with each other
during her lifetime , . and there is no
picture of her at the castle. The

Neville at her death. I have been
so much abroad tha1 I am quite a
stranger to the WTynters and all their
set. You know Mrs. Neville ? "
"Intimately ; and Beauty , too. "
with an amused smile. "And every
Tuesday afternoon Beauty gives me
cup of tea with her own fair little
hiinc1. "

"Am 1 a nice boy ? " asked Penrud-
dock , with a laugh. "Wilding if

"And a great deal of good that

In the Row.
All yesterday the rain fell heavily.
Not in quiet showers , bu with a
steady downpour that drenched the
world , rendering the park a lonely
wilderness , and the Ride deserted.
To-day the sun. as though weary of
yesterday's inaction , is out again ,
going his busy round. and casting
his rich beams on rich and poor ,
simple and wise , alike. The Row is
crowded-filled to overflowing with
the gaily dressed throng that has
come out to bask inthe glad warmth
and sunshine. and revel in the sense
of well-being engendered by the softness -
ness and sweetness of the rushing
The occupants of the chair seem
drowsily inclined , anti answer in
soft monosyllables those with energy -

old lady , unmindful of the carriages
that pass and repass incessantly ,

lug slumber , made musical by nores
low but deep. The very loungers
or , the railing have grown silent. as
though speech was irksome , and conversation -
versation not to be borne , and content -
tent themselves with gazing upon
the beauty that is carried by them
as the tide of fashion ebbs anl flows.

perhaps , as Mrs. Neville. to whom it

and is looking more than ordinarily

the carriage is drawn up beside the

nod , Mrs. Neville beckons the young
man to her side. It is quite a month
since that night at the opera , whore
Penruddock first saw Maud Neville
-a month full of growing hopas and
disheartening fears. At first , Mrs.
N villo had been adverse to the acquaintance -
quaintance altogether. bearing a
strange grudge to the very name of
Penruddock , as she held it responsible -
ble lot' all the ills that had befallen
her beloved sister. She had scolied
Wilding in her harmless fashion as
severely as she could scold anyone
for having brdught one ofthose
people , " as she termed them , within
her doors. more especially the boy
who had succeeded to the property
that should by right have belonged
to the little Hilda , her dead sister's
only child.
But time and Dick L'enruddock's
charm of manner had .conquered
prejudice and vauc suspicion ; and
Mrs. .Nevillo , after many days , ac-
knowledgeci even to herself that she
liked the young man-nay , almost
loved him , in spite of his name and
parentage. Just now he domes gladly -

takes her hand , and beams upon her ,
and then glances past her to accept

'You may , indeed. "
" , so Maud said , " says Mrs.
Neville , with : t faint sigh of relief.
"Did Miss Neviile say that ? I did
not dare to believe that she had so
good an opinion of me. To be considered -
sidered worthy of trust is a very
great corn pliment jildeed , "says Dick ,

recognition and solnew. at haughty
inclination of her small head , has

Juiiii. -
"Have you 50011 th iWi ess yet ,
Miss Neville ? " asks Penruddock at
length , in despair , filled with a sudden -
den determination to make her
speak ; and to compel her large ,
thoughtful eyes to meet his own , if
only for a single instant. Rather
nice , her ponies , don't you think ? "
"Not bred so highly as Mi's.
Cabbe's. nor so perfect in any way , "
returns Miss Neville , unsympathetically -
ally , letting her eyes rest upon him
for a very brief moment , and making
him a present of a grave. pleasant ,
but cold little smile.
Penruddock is piqued , almost an-
gry. Already he has learned the
value of position , moneythe world's
adulation ; yet this girl alone treats
him with Open coldness and some-
r thing that borders on positive
avoidance , though she is utterly
without position , and only indebted
to the popularity MrS. Neville enjoys -
joys with both sexes for her admittance -
tance into society. Two or three
men coming UJ ) to the victoria at
this moment stay to speak to its oc-
cupantsancl to all Miss Neville gives

A tall , dark man , pushing his way
through the others. makes his bow

presence with a salutation that is
certainly somewhat colder th an
those accorded to the others to-day.

who has made the same remark to
all the others straight through.

it sems too much luck to meet you
this afternoon with the certainty of

I venture to hope for one dance tonight -
night , Miss Neville-or do I , as
usual , ask too late ? "
"Quite too late. Every dance is
promised. "
"What , all ? I am indeed unfortu-
nate-there is no denying that ! Is
there nooody you could throw over
to give me even otto jeer dance ? "
" 1 ntvet throw over my partners , "
Lays Miss Neville , distinctly ; "my
conscience is opposed to that. and
will notallow me to break my word
-once given. "
"Yet I think-short as is our ac-
quaintanc-I remember one partnet'

indeed the unhappiest of men Is
there no hope that you will change mind and let me live in the expectation -
pectation of being favored witll one
waltz ? "
"I can oTr you no such hope. "
returns she , with so much pointed
decision in her voice and epressiou
that Saumarez , turning sharply on
his heel , takes off his hat with a
frowning brow and somewhat viii-
dirttive glance. and the net minute
has disappeared among the crowd.
There is a slight but perceptible
pause alter he has gone. The other
men have melted away before this.
and only Penruddoek remains.
About a weak ago , Miss Neviflo
had almost promised him a waltz as
to this particular dance , but doubtless -
less she has by this time forgotten
all about such a promise , and has
given the waltz in question to some
more favored individual.
But at this moment Miss Neville
sees lIt to join iii the conversation.
She turns her head slowly , and lot-
Ling her handsome eyes meet Pen-
ruddoek's , chains him to the spot by
the very pow r of their beauty.
'Then I suppose I am at liberty
to give away that third waltz that. I
promised you at Lady Ryccroft's ? "
she asks , slowly , without removiri
her gaze.
'You remember it ? I thought
lerhaps you had forgotten , " says
Penruddock , eagerly. "No , do not
give it away. Dear Mrs. Neville , do
not think inc unstable , or fickle , or
anything that way. but the fact is.
nothing on earth could keep me
from your dance to-night. "
I-Ic flushes a dark red , laughs a
little , raises his hat , and. as though
unable to longer endure the rather
inischievo'us smile in Miss Neville's
blue eyes. beats a hasty retreat.
"Be is a dear boy-quite charming -
ing , " says Mrs. Nevillewho is feeling
puzzled , "but certainly a little
vague. So very unlike his father ,
who was the most unpleasantly mat-
ter-of-fact person I ever met. What
were you saying to Captain Sauma-
i.oz , Malihie ? I saw that you were
talking tohuin , but you did not seem
very genial , either of you. "
"He is very distasteful to me. "
says Maud , quickly. "I don't know
what it is , auntie , but I feel a hori -
i oia hatred of that man. 1-us man-
nei' toward inc is insolent to a de-
gree. It is as though he would corn-
pci me , against my will. to be civil
to him , and I never shall ! " concludes
.Nevjjlo , botwect tier little ,
white , even teeth. - - - - -
"I don't think r care much
about him myself , " says Mrs. I
Nevihle. "ITo always seems
tq mo to be sometiing of an
ttc1venturei ; and. besid , he is a
friend of all the Penruddocks , and.
except Dick , I never liked any of
of them. Not that he is munch of a
friend there either , as he never
speaks of them. and even if drawn
into conversation about Dick's
father , as a rule. says something dis-
paraging. But he has money. and
is received everywhere ; and I really
think , my dear child , he is very devoted -
voted to you. "
"oh , do not , pray , try to make
him even more detestable in my
sight than he is already , " says Maud
with a shiver that may mean dis-
'O1i , no ! Of course I meant tioth-
ing. And he is the la3t man I
should care to see you married to.
But some time or other you must
make a selection-you can but know
that-and I am always thinking for
you. indeed I am. Dick Penruddock
is very much in love with you. I
really believe , though you always
deny it. "
' 1 deny it because I think he it

sudden and unlooked for nergy.
All the color has lied from heir
checks and her lips tremble slightly.

apoleon's Memoirs.
The " Memoirs of Napoleon , " much
prized by collectors of his works , and
very scarce in the original edition , were
dictated by Napoleon iimself at St.
Helena to Counts Montholon and Gour-
gaud. He employed the six years of
his captivity in writing the account of
the twenty years of his political -life.
So constantly was he occupied in this
undertaking that to describe the labor
he bestowed upon it would be almost
to write the history of his life at St.
Helena. He seldom wrote himself-
impatient of the pen which refused to
follow the rapidity of his thoughts.
When he wished to draw up the account -
count of any event he caused the Generals -
erals who surrounded him to unvcsti-
gate the sabject ; and , when all the materials -
terials were collected , he dictated to
them extemporo. He revised the manuscript -
uscript , correcting it with his own
hand. , He often dictated it anew , and
still more frequently recommenced a
a whole page in the margin. These
manuscripts , entirely covered with his
writing , have been carefully preserved.

Weak nerves respond harshly and inharmonl-
ously to slight shocks , which would produce no
effect upon strong ones. The shrill outcry of a
child , the slamming of a door , the rattling of a
vehicle over uneven pavement and other trifling
disturbances effect weak nerves-sensitive
nerves , sorely. Nervousness Is largely attributed -
tributed to dyspepsia and non-assimilation of
the food , a very usual concomitant of sleepless-
ness. Digestion and assimilation renewed by
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters , soon beget nerve
quietude and sound repose. The great alterative -
ative causes the liver and bowels to unite In cooperative -
operative harmony with the stomach , whereby
the general tone of the system Is raised to the
true standard of health. In malarial complaints ,
rheumatism and kidney trouble , the BJtters

At one time in the Michigan City
penitentiary there was a renaissance
in the moral discipline of the prison
and all were compelled to attend
chapel regularly. One of the prisoners -
ers came to the warden one day and
begged to be allowed to remain
away from the chapel exercises , as
he wanted Sundays to write letters
to his friends. The warden looked

It rouses every organ of the body to activity -
tivity , purifies , enriches and vitalmzes
the blood so that the body feels refreshed
and strengthened. If you are too thin , too
weak , too nervous , it may be that the food
assimilation is at fault. A certain amount
of bile is necessary for the reception of the
fat foods in the blood. Too often the liver
holds back this element which would help
digestion. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery stimulates , tones up and invigorates -
orates the liver , nourishes the blood , and
the muscles , stomach and nerses get the
rich blood they require.
