Moiia's mother was to meet them on an exuursiuii train, and they hud thought it best not to awaken the ouriosity uf the depindenia of the house uutil after the dueision was made. Signor Paolita told his son of this, and that he was to give littio Lud^ Mona, as she was still culled, the ehoiue between his lovo und the love und duty she owed a mother, Eugene won to make known to her that her mother had "'umo to claim hur. Eugene and Mona were alone in a couch-oar, wlien, with great tendnrnes, the young man told her of her mother's return. "You are right, my littio Mona," cried Eugene.

We will not depict the sadly sweet meeting batwenn Mona and hur long-Kist mother, which Signor Paolita and Eugene watched with sjrrowful admiration With a glad cry Lady Mona arose as if she would fly to meet her, when she was gently withheld by Eugene, who drew her upon the seat by his side, and whispered: 'Monu, I lovo you t Will you leave me for tho mothur you cannot remem ber?-Think, I have loved you all my life little Ludy Mona I" "Oh, Eugene, I love you, but I must go to uiy mother-'whither she guest I go, where she diest will L die, bur people shall be my people, and her God my God'."

The other ufturnoon, says tho Pvit, FrcsH, a sharp-featured woman, nearly six fuut high, came into the city on the Grand Kiver roud with about three-eights of a cord of red oak wood so green that the sup exuded and fruzu to ice, and thusu in search of wood gave her load looks of contempt and scorn. She halted near the Cass Market, and waited there more than an hour. She seemed tu be getting dlueouragod, when along came u little resident of tho Cuh.-j farm, and asked her the price of thu wood.
