It is difficult to express ite value in figures.\ And this is the stciy It is just abont 20 yearn ago when one morning a young woman entered a large jewelry store in Budapest Every inch of * her dress bespoke tlie back­ woods, her bonnet was a composition of glaringly disharmonious colors; in one hand she held a parasol of old, large flowered, faded silk. Every one of her motions betrayed the country girl. Any salesman of experience who had watch- j ed her entrance into the stove would j have thought at once, \Ah she wants | a cheap platpd bracelet, with the word 1 'Sonvenir' engraved on it, as a memento ; of this her first visit to the city.\ And under ordinary circumstances he would have been abont right in his conjecture; • but this time he wasn't. She appeared , so simple and artless, in hpite of her, handsome, vivacious black eyes and the 1 dimples in her red cheeks, that the r salesman attending to her omitted offering her a seat. ; 'The yonng girl, however, did not| seem to notice this slight, and uninvited 1 dropped down on a small red plush j fantenil,\principally used by the noble j customers of the store. She opened the , retftule hanging on her arm' and drew 1 out a small package carefully wrapped j in tissue paper. After she had peeled . off layer after layer of the envelope she i took out the nucleus, beckoned to the | owner of the establishment and exhibit- J ed to him something she held between , her thumb and index finger. j \What is the value of this?\ aha] asked in a melodious Voic. -The jeweler started visibly and took 1 the object from her hand. I It was the above mentioned pearl, of' such beauty and size that he hardly trusted his eyes. At one place it had a barely noticeable flaw, which might have been done by a former setting. \The pearl has one defect,\ the jew- : eler said. j \Indeed 1\ the stranger answeYed, i bending forward to inspect the small' spot. • i The jeweler \sized np\ the girl. Her I astonishment was genuine, artless. It was not tinged with the shadow of hy- | peensy. \Where did you get that pearl?\ hej the crimes on the statute books 'tYon mnst pardon me,\ I said apol­ ogetically? \bnt this is really an ex­ traordinary case. A jewel of such val­ ue\— \All right, but whatever yon do you do at your risk.\ The girl appeared to me entirely above suspicion, and to be quick witted. A long acquaintance with crooks of all kinds permits me to quickly distinguish between the hypocrite and the honora­ ble, and I was indeed not mistaken in my diagnosis. Arriving at polite head­ quarters, she was asked who she was, whence fche came.and whence the pearl. She gave her name and residence. Her father, she stated, had at his death be­ queathed her a modest pawnbroker shop in a small country town, w hich had often been visited by a young farmer, who had pawned various articles with her. He was very poor, she said. One day she accidentally passed near bis miserable but and heard n noise in the yard. Well knowing the man, slie en­ tered and learned that all his posses­ sions were being di.-tnuned for a debt of 18 florins. The young man called her aside, secretly sliowed her the pearl and asked for a loan of '20 florins on it to pay the debt. He said the pearl was an old keepsake with which he parted most unwillingly Moved rather by pity than by the value of the collateral, she ad­ vanced the sum desired, although she knew from general experience that, if the pearl was gen tine it must be quite valuable, but she thonght it. to be an im­ itation only. It is barely worth while to add other data. The telegraph was called into requisition and the truth of her statement established The history of the pearl was as fol­ lows The father of the young fanner had been a chamber valet of Count Louis Batthanyi. the minister president of the revolutionary government of Hungary, in 1K4N. The count wore the pearl as n cravat pin, and a few hours before his death—as is kuown he was shot in Pest by order of a military court martial—ho presented it to his faith im servant, who under no cir­ cumstances ever parted with it. At his dpath his son took the pearl out of the setting, which he sold, keeping the pearl and parting from it as recited. The pearl itself had been stolen about 150 years ago out of the English crown, which had contained three of them Two large, diamonds went with it at tho same time. The English govern­ ment had been looking for it for 1 fid years, but to np avail. Nothing was ever heard of it until this accident. In what manner it drifted into Connt Bat­ thanyi's possession will doubtless re­ main a secret forever. He harl most probably bought it of some antiquarian. The English government redeemed the pearl, paying for it the offered re­ ward of £2,500, a handsomo sum. which the girl divided with the farm­ er—but not divided, because the his­ tory of the pearl says that the two con­ cluded to keep the money together— best done by getting married \Yes.\ added my gray haired inform­ ant, \many jewels and pearls have had their eventful history, and during the many years that I have been en­ gaged in dealing in precions stones a good many of their ups and downs and mishaps—theft, aixm. murder and all have THE POOR IK CHILDREN. \Tell me again, mother, about the lit­ tle sick children in the hospital.\ lisped the little 4*year-oId girl, looking u p in her mother's face ' \Well you see. dear, the hospital be- yan in a Very small way A good lady l.'ave a bouse, and the sisters took in and cared for all the poor sick children that the house would hold. But a great many poor mothers brought their sick children when there was no room for them It seemed so sad Then one. day a little girl belonging to a rich family died, and her mother as a remem­ brance, gave another house, so that lit­ tle children who were ill. as her little daughter had been, bnt who had no comfortable homes, might be cared for by the good sisters Now the houses are there and the beds, enough for 100 chil­ dren hut the sisters need money for food and medicines for the little ones, and so the small children of the guild are going to save their pennies all throngh Lent and give them for medi­ cine for the hospital children instead of speuding them for candy \I wish I conld give something to the little sick children.\ said Gwen wist­ fully \Bnt I haven't any pennies, and you do not allow me to eat candy. \ \How would you like $0 earn some money?\ asked mamma \Oh. could I?

A noble- | man desires to pawn his pearl with me, i but demands much money. Please tell me what it is worth, and I will pay for the. trouble.\ \I cannot appraise it,\ said the jew­ eler, regarding it with an admiring eye. v \Why not? Why can yon not fix its j vhlpe?\ the girl rejoined in ar vexed tone. •sWell, well,\ the man said appeas- ingly. \I only desired to express there­ by that the pearl is beyond appraise­ ment because of its great rarity. Its valne belongs among the 'fancy' prices.'' * The yonng girl pondered a moment; then, regarding the jeweler attentively, she asked \Can I advance 2,000 florins on it?\ \Most certainly.\ \And 5,000?\ \Also 5,000.\ \And tO. 000?\ \\The jeweler \And 10,000.\ The country beauty evidently became feverish. Perspiration showed in her ! face, and her youthful black eyes glit­ tered with u fire snperior to that of the costliest diamonds in the store She asked for a glass of water. The former­ ly inattentive salesman rushed to get it. \And will you pay me 10,000 florins for the pearl if I feel disposed to sell it? 1 am also authorized to sell it,\ she said, with a certain show of suspicion, fearful lest the jeweler was simply hoaxing her. \No\— \Ah she exclaimed, \I yon were hoaxing me I\ \Oh nol God forbid,\ the jeweler responded evasively. \It is simply be­ cause I have no trse for the pearl. There is only one firm in Austria that would buy it—the jeweler for the court. \ \Would yon please furnish\ 1 me with bis address?\ A Willingly.\ He wrote the address on a piece o f paper, which he handed to her; she in­ closed it in her reticule, drank tho glass of water courteously 'offered by the salesman, and, in spite of protests/ come to my knowledge I propose to write a book about these advent tires sooner or later, and I assure you it will contain entertaining and startling read­ ing matter.\—Jewelers' Circular Bmilingly repeated.

In the seventeenth century it wjts gold beaded and made of rare woods It was a sign of leadership. For a long period there was little variety among Englishmen in the ma­ terial used-for the majority of walking sticks.

This thread cannot be seen by the spec­ tators Make a few passes with the wand, at the same time slipping it into the thread loop, and then yon can make the wand appear to cling to your hands at any angle or in almost any position This is a very taking trick.

In winter nature ceases from her labors and prepares for ,tho- great change. The wind sweeps through tho great forest with a sound like tho blast of a trumpet. The dry, loaves whirl in eddies, through the air A fretwork of hoary frost covers the plain. The stagnant water in the pools and ditches is frozen into fantastic figures. In the low hanging clouds tlie sharp air, like a busy shuttle, weaves her shroud of snow. There is a melancholy and continual roar in tho tops of the tall pines like the roar of a cattiract. It is tbe funeral anthem ot the dying year,—Longfollow. •'It may \be for years, and it may be forever.\- The childish lip quivered, the sweet voice faltered and the dark eyes o f the singer filled with bright tears. The moon shone softly down on the up­ turned face of the girl and revealed to the dark figure resting against a rock the sorrow sho tried so hard to bide. The waves rose and fell with unceasing motion, and seemed to echo the lost sod \Mavourneen mayourneen,\ that floated out on tho air. \ 'It may be for years, and it may be forever!' Kathleen, it will not bo forever.- Can't you trust me, Kathie? It will only be for a little while and then I will come back and claim my bride. Won't trust me?\ - J._ \Yes but there are fairer faces in ^01 i home. You will forget me, and then, Ned, I cannot live!\ Jjtnd the soft eyes- were full of passionate tears. \Kathie I cannot forget you I And, though there may be fairer girls over tho sea there is none so dear to me as you. I will come back, Kathleen, and you must trust me. Will you? Will you promise that when I come back I will find my own bright! Kathio waiting?\ The promise was given and the quiver­ ing mouth struggled bravely to smile. Last kisses were pressed oa lip and brow, and he was gone. • Back to her quiet life she carried the sweet knowledge of his love, and, though her heart was sad when she thought of the many, weary miles of land and water that lay between them, yet the letters filled with love that found their way to, the lit­ tle home by the sea cheered and encour­ aged her. And far away'in her lover's .old home a girl as fair and young as Kathleen was learning to love handsome Ned. Edward Yalare was not a bad man and called himself an' honorable one, but he found it pleasant pastime to call the bright' blushes into his little cousin's face, and he had noticed her at first because she had Kathleen's pretty way of drooping her long lashes and giving him such shy glances. Then his proud mother told him of Cousin Edna's broad lands and overflow­ ing coffers. J At first ho would not think of it, but thoughts of the magnificent fortune that would bo his if Edna was his wife would rise despite his efforts. He had been writing to Kathleen late one afternoon and came out on the lawn, where Edna was, with tho letter in his hand. \Cousin Ned!\ sho cried, \I do believe you have been writing to your sweet­ heart Tell the truth! Have you?\ Sho had left the rustic seat and was standing close at his side trying tu catch a glimpse of the naiuo on tho envelope. \Give it to me. You \should have no secrets from your cousin,\ she said, laugh­ ing and trying to gain possession of the letter. Ho caught her hands and held thorn close in his own, and something in his eyes nitido her own drop, and tho crimson blood tinged even the fair brow. \Edna he said impulsively, \I believe I could love you if I triod.\ ' Tho eyes were downcast no longer, but were raised to his full of an engon light. The littlo hands trembled violently, and, flattered by her emotion and unconcealed love and forgetting everything but her beauty, ho spoke words that could not be recalled. When the summons came for tea, he led his cousin to his mother, hi3 affianced bride. Tho letter he had written to Katljleen was consigned to the fire, and he tried to write another, breaking gently the news of his desertion. But the sweet face with the pleading dark eyes he had last looked upon in the moonlight on that foreign beach would rise up before him, and, full of remorse and regret, ho turned from the task, bitterly repenting his folly. Weeks passed, and Kathleen's eyes grew weary with \watching for the delayed letter. ''I told you tho fine gentleman.would forget you and turn to some fairer lass, and my words, you see, are true,'' was the comfort her aged father gave her. But tho loving mother drew the throb­ bing head to her bosom and cheered her with sweet words of comfort. The letter never came. But a. newspaper came in its stead. Kathie turned with a sickening dread to the marriage notices. As she road the color faded slowly from her face, and her lips grew white and rigid. Well, sho did not die. Death does not come for tiro wishing. Fivo years passed away and found Kath­ leen still a maiden. It washer birthnight, and she had strolled down to the beach, whero tho moon was shining soft and bright, as it had done when, live years bo- fore, he had left her standing there almost heartbroken. She was living again in tho olden time, when a firm, quick step aroused herfrom tho sad reverse,—^ A well known voice cried: • \Kathie Kathie! I have come back!\ She turned a cold, stem face to tho new­ comer and her voice was as cold as her white face as she said: \You have come back, Mr. Valare, but too late.\ \For the love of heaven, Kathie, do not tell me that!\ He/Sought her hands in his, he pleaded witK her, but the rigid lines around her mouth were slow in relaxing. \Kathleen ho said again, \I cannot give you up. F.dna's grave lies for away and Edua's boy is waiting to call you mother. I have wronged you in tho past, but let my devotion in the future atone iu part. Will you como to ine?\ There were many 1 silver threads'' in the brown hair of tho man pleading so plteously to be forgiven that told of bis suffering. And Kathie was only a woman. So tho moon looked down on the sauio pic­ ture it saw five long years ago.—New York News. A Victim ot Cruelty. A shaky littlo lady, apparently about 70 years old, filed her claim in the Madrid peusion office tho other day. This was Maria Louisa Yunigo, the heroine of Punfca Brava, who is only 39. She lived with her family on her Cuban estate whin the insurgent chief, Quentin Bandera, at­ tacked tli-< place. Her people, including her husband and two sons, were all killed, and the insurgent leader tried tQ make her cry ' Cuba libv?!\ by their bodies. But she t-nly shouted, \Viva Espana!\ When Bandera beat her, she attacked him, tearing out ou'o of hin eyes, Sho was then scalped witho-machote, her ears were silt to get her diamond earrings, and dozens of wounds- wore inflicted upon her. She was left for dead, but tho Spaniards, who ar­ rived soolj after, found her heart still beating, av il she was revived. And Seta Earlier Too. The Chicagoan had said something about Philadelphia being slow. \Slow 1\ cried tho Philadelphian. \Why bang It, man, the sun rises in our town an hour before it does to yours!\—Chica­ go Post. A Deadly Weapon. Bronxborough—Where are those biscuits you made for supper? Mrs. Bronxborough—You don't want to eat biscuits at this time of night, do you?
