Madame do Sbrg&es inftde her 1 talk, laughed athefsifAngep&tois* and dajr by day bedaine hiofeabd ittote interested in this Unconscious misery which the little one, courageous and devoted as she was, bbre without Complaint. One afternoon the thfee\ children were lufaching 1 on the terrace, while ,GHse, unhar- nessed, was strutting about in the sand) enjoying her freedom. Madatne de« Sorghes, smokihg cigaret after cigaret, amused herself in cramming her protege with dainties, while tCio- mane, still timid, felt obliged to ro strain the gourmandise of her healthy young appetite. As she was eating a bun with evident enjoyment, her arms suddenly fell with a gesture of terror, and her sunburned facts turned purple. She had just recognized Pore Jean, her master, who was passing ;the cottage. He was coming home from fishing, his net almost empty, and he was evidently in very bad humor. Tiomane tried to hide, but it was too late; the fisherman had seen his little servant, and he stqpped and reproached her harshly for her idleness. Guillaume interrupted him. "It is'all rightist is all right! I tell you. " We pay you for the time We keep your donkey," and he flung' one hundred sous at the peasant's feet. The man picked them up eagerly, apologizing for his rudeness, and went on his way. This little incident decided Tiomane's future. Madame , do Sorgnes, exasperated at the peasant's harshness, applauded her son's act. With this increase of pity, an inspiration came to the great lady. Why should she not adopt this poor neglected child, whp seemed so worthy of a better fate? Was not this reparation incumbent on her—a debt—a duty? And what a pleasant duty, to take the uncomplaining little Victim from her tor- men tors. To Sister Victoire,, who had become a clearly loved friend, Madame de Sorgnes unfolded her plan; she wished to make her work complete; her gratitude knew no limits. She wished to adopt Tiomano, to educate her .with her own daughter, and to provide for her future. But if the consul's beautiful wife intended to take the role of a fairy godmother, she did not propose to give herself any trouble about it, bvit simply to raise her magic wand \vhile peacefully smok- 'ing her cigarets, reclining on a sofa. Besides, no one was so well : fitted as Sister Victoire to make all necessary arrangements. The only difficulty in carrying out this benevolent scheme was that of obtaining from the officials of the orphan asylum at Boulogne the transfer of the child,' already apprenticed to Jeano Bousquier, to the caro of the rich and powerful Madame do Sorgnes; ' the result of the negotiations was, however, a foregone conclusion. In a few days a touching scene took place between Tiomane and her benefactress. The "OFFEBEP IIEB ASSISTANCE." latter was in possession of the written consent of tho officials of the asylum,' together with the most minute information with regard to her little pro- tege, whQse real name was Armando Laurin, Her father.a professor of mathematics at the Lyceum of Boulogne, had married a young girl without fortune/ He bud died two years after his marriage, In $ few inpn^hs consump* 'tion, Jiad parrie'd qfj the grief > stricken young mother, and tl>? infant, without relatives, without any resource wbnt- ever,bad been received into the asylum by the'gpod Sisters pf Charity.

Tall, thiii, lihenomenaliy ugly t her angular face Was nevertheless intelligent, and not without distittd- tibti. She laughed ah aftected little laugh at the noble hearted boy's-reprl* inafid, and fixed on the fi-ightetied little gif 1 the steny stare of her ag* gtessive gfay eyes, ; Tioraahe felt her heart sink with a presentiment of sorrow, but Guillatime put an end to this paihful scene by seizing her iti his arms .in a brotherly way, and saying in a reassuring toft e, "Don't 'Worry about it, Tiomane. Mamma will buy everything for you in Paris. Fine clothes are plenty there, and you will soon learn to Wear them ptoperly." Dinner was announced. He drew her gently into the dining room, and placed her at his side at tho table. Jt seemed to Tiomane that an extravagant dream had suddenly transported her to a fairy land in which she felt bewildered and lost, In the midst of numerous distinguished guests, she looked around in a soi't of stupor, not daring to 'eat. Her keen intelligence gave her the perception, rare indeed in a child of her age, of the 'immense distance which separated her from v this refined and brilliant society. It terrified her, However, her friend and neighbor, Guillaume, continued to show her the most thoughtful attentions. It was he who served her, for he know that she would not dare touch the dishes presented gravely by the white gloved butler. At dessert there was a second altercation between the impulsive, generous hearted boy and "Mademoiselle," as every one called the governess. In the course of the conversation Mademoiselle Pascale said, "Oh, I told you it was imprudent to let the children go alone, I expected some misfortune." "Ah! Mademoiselle," Guillaume replied, "no matter what the weather is, you are always predicting a storm. " "Guillaume!" . cried Madame do Sorgnes severely. But the rebuke was so 'well merited that she could not repress a slight smile, which was seen by the governess, and again Tiomane saw the look of hatred in the stony eyes, which seemed to impute this new disgrace to her. . All the habitues of this hospitable mansion had met to do honor to the last hours of Madame de Sorgnes' stay at Berck, As may well be imagined, the little' donkey driver's wonderful good luck was the principal siibject of conversation. In the chaos of these new, strange impressions, Tiomane ''elicited one idea, which was to bo the point of departure in all her appreciations of life. The circle of children" formed a mimic court around Guillaume; and Maritza. Tinder the empressement of 1 this little .: we>iid was seen: the servile admiration of children of a larger growth, and the son and daughter of the consul-general of France, surrounded by princely luxury, enjoyed -an undisputed sov- erignty, and had flatterers already. Elli, tho wife of Kifos, a young Greek of about '30, :clad, in'the fashion of the women of Asia Minor, in- a flowered skirt, a chemisette of sillc under the short vest embroidered in silver, a red" cap with a Long bluo tassel, under which the heavy braids of her black hair rolled, conducted Tiomane to a beautiful, sleeping room and undressed her. But the little donkey driver found the proffered aid hard to accept. Like everything else, riches and luxury naust have a novitiate, (TO BE CONTINUED.) STEVENSON'S APVENTURE. How the Novelist Curae Near Being Put Off a Train for Smoking:, During his last visit to this country Robert Louis Stevenson escaped a very unpleasant experience and never knew it, according' to a story told in Harper's Weekly, A journalist, who knew Stevenson "by his published portraits, entered a railway car at Long Branch, and saw the famous author seated in a corner, with a black square box on'the opposite seat and a rubber tube dangling frpm it.
