lnuuli of them.
New Year's day was drawing near,
and, according ta my usual custom. I
wandered from store to store, in search
of something original and costly for
my littlo friend, my schoolmate's
daughter! Little? NN by, now she whs
n young lady, It* years old Next month
she would make her debut, and I must
find some pretty jewel to heighten her
I know she is rather vain and super-
ficial, but all young ladies of her iige
are more or less vain and I try to ti ml
some excuse for her. The mother, a so-
ciety woman, lias hud very little time to
educate the heart of the daughter.
Time will help, 1 think, as I stop here
and there to admire the exqnisitc gems
displayed iu the show windows to
tempt the buyers. Finally, I see just
what I want -a ring of rubies and dia-
monds. 1 remember how tiie girl bus
talked about this very ring, with a
longing sigh. How eould I have over-
looked the plain hint the inno'.cnt child
had given me?
1 buy the ring with a childish joy,
and having stored it carefully iu my
pocket, I walk out of the shop, to find
myself face to face with the mother and
daughter, who with an enchanting
hinileand friendly salute hurry on their
way. 1 feel like a scholar caught by
his teacher with a cigarette in liU
mouth, and I actually put my hand to
my pocket, to hide more effectually the
surprise it coutains.
1 wander leisurely home, to find the
wife of my janitor in an exulted state.
"O, sir, what shall we do?" she
say*. "The girl oil the third floor is
very ill, and the doctor has just left,

1 now remember my purchase, and,
after admiring it again in its velvet
case, i lock it in my closet to wait for
the happy New Year's day. Lighting
a cigarette, I sit at my window, dream-
ing of days gone by, when 1 had
thought of a plain gold ring to adorn
a dear little white hand. 1 was only
a student then, and full of enthusiasm.
My father's objection cooled my warm
heart, and I soon become an inveterate
bachelor, and a very selfish man—with
only my own pleasure to consider and
no one to care for! Hut then I had
friends; such good friends, even in my
own house, in whose home there is al-
ways a place for me. Some men are
far less fortunate.
And so 1 sit and forget even time.
In a week and a half it will be New
Year's. I am invited to my friend's
for t he Christinas dinner day after to-
The bell rings suddenly and with un-
wonted violence. Who can it be? Kosa,

"Please, sir. a lady wants to see you."
"Let her come in. ltosa." 1 rise to
meet the visitor. Hut a flush of an-
noyance comes to my face. It i my
third floor lodger!
"What can I do for you, madam?''
"A great deal. sir. 1'lease, oh please
take back the order to send my sister
to the hospital! 1 could not go with
her, and it would kill her."
I look at the tnll. dignified figure be-
fore me. She stands, because I have
not offered her a seat! Where is my
courtesy? I am ashamed, and I hastily
push an arm chair toward her.
"No, thank you; my sister is ill, and
needs me. I have only come to tell
you that she can not leave the house."
Her tone vexes me. it is so decided.
"1 beg your pardon, she must go—
for I do not wish to have a death in
ray house, especially not in these days,
when my friends "
Hut. heavens! What is that! The
woman reels, and I have barely time
to prevent her from falling to the
ground. NVhat a brute 1 am! How
eould I speak so carelessly about a
death, which would leave her all
alone, and take from her her dearest
and best friend? 1 should never, never

soon as she is able to stand, she says
iu a low but cold voice: "1 am sorry!
Hurl.ni the trouble 1 have made you,
sir,'' and without another word she
walks out like one in a drenin, with a
terribly bitter smile on her lips.
1 felt so guilty that 1 st«Mxl like n
statue, without a word of apology.
When she was out of sight I
felt vexed at the part I had
played in thin tragedy, and to
console myself 1 went down to my
friend's to talk it over, .lust as I was
about to pull their bell, the door was
opened by the maid, who was let-
ting out a messenger with some parcel.
I was such an every-day guest that she
allowed me to stop into the parlor, and
went about her nn n work. This room
was divided from a second one by only

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS.
A Kesolve to Do Itettn Is a Step in

It is true, very possibly, that only
one in a million of these resolutions
ever amounts to anything permanently.
A month, a week, a day, may see the
end of them, and the old sin or delin-
quency or habit may be in the as-
cendant again, sometimes, alas! re-en-
forced and stronger than before, strong

to its destruction on the part of him

For Royal Baking Powder. The "Royal*
is shown by all tests, official, scientific, and prac-
tical, stronger, purer, and better in every way
than all other Baking Powders. Its superiority
is privately acknowledged by other manufac-
turers, and well known by all dealers.
If some grocers try to sell another baking
powder in place of the " Royal,' it is because of
the greater profit. This of itself is good evidence
of the superiority of the " Royal.' I o give greater
profit the other must be a lower cost powder, and
to cost less it must be made with cheaper and
inferior materials, and thus, though selling for the
same, give less value to the consumer.
LOOK, with suspicion upon every attempt to palm off
upon you any baking powder in place of the
"Royal." There is no substitute for the "Royal.
