For the last twenty years of his life the old man was blind, and was much, pitied by an only brother with whom lie bad quarreled in their youth. Eagerly did this brother seek for some sign of foigiveness, but the old blind man gave none, and fearing to be repelled in las advances, be went no more to the house, but' thinking that the qniet conplc might be almost destitute, sent, in the fullness of his heart a sum sufficient for ordinary needs, and found this misplaced contribution nest morning among his own mail, with no word thereon. Happening to pass the old place one day the memory of their childhood was strong upon him. Surely it was not intended that brothers should live like this. Peering through in the high board fence, a knot-ho- le be saw the poor old blind man sitting in the sunlight among masses of bloom in the yard. Quickly securing camera, he took the only picture of him in existence, with the sun upon his snowy hair and 'shining through his heavy beard, which reached almost to his knees. "He is not a happy old man," his brother thought. "If something that T could do, would take away his dejected look, how gladly would I do that e, of-the- ir thing this day." Before his failing sight had warned him to desist this old man was a rare scholar. He was an expert artist, a skilled penman, a passionate Jajrer of flowers, and of all things Jcutiful.

It was of. rare make, of old mahogany, with knobs of curious design. He drew it forth, pleased that there was one article worth keeping. The different compartments were empty empty as the lives of the owners. Stooping to test its weight, he noticed a sound which could not have been made by the. wooden parts which Sic had already examined. Thinking that this noise must have been iiiadc by the odd castors or the keys in his pocket, he again attempted to carry it over the ragged rug upon the floor. The heavy weight falling upon a decayed plank in the floor caused it to break, throwing the man violently forward. The escritoire struck the casing of the door with great force, and a large thin piece flew from the bottom. The man was upon his feet in an instant examining with feverish haste, the secret compartment, from which part of the fake bottom had fallen. Reaching in his hand, he drew forth a casket of silver, pecularly chased, and securely locked. In his excitement he had much difficulty in finding his knife, and after selecting the tiniest blade, managed after some time, to spring the lock. The box contained no treasure. Only a faded parchment, with many strange characters in a very small, and almost illegible handwriting. The thing must have been untouched for manj years. He moved toward the cobwebhed window, as the lighr-o- f day was fast failing. Of the parchment he could make nothing. Not one word could he read. But the case immediately 'So delicately held his attention. chased was it that it mnst have been The wrought by a master-workmasmall, round knobs upon which h rested were tiny faces, horrible in their representation of awful suffering, faces of a woman, perfect ''i every lineament, but hideous in their ghastly expression.

Each tiny animal perfect, each Arab driver perfect in detail one ahno- -t felt the rpprcssivc heat; one almost would be thirsty only seeing. Upon another side tdic forms or a man and a woman, the eyes of the man dark and beautiful, an Arab in dress: the woman dolicately formed, and very fair.

He was The half lying upon the sand. showed a wound in the carving breast, from which the clotted blood seemed to ooze. The eyes were the eyes of a maniac, fierce, glittering. Beside this stricken one upon the sand, was a strangely shaped box. and in his hand a cup. This cup contained quaint carving, a tiny bey playing an instrument of leeds beside a well, deep and seeming dark. The leaves of the tiny tree represented, were perfect jn their delicate veining. a 'tiny bird with flowing tail, sweeping the branch below, a bit of moss upon a stone, near by. Another side the figure of a woman prone in the sand, stark, staring, rigid. By her side this strange cup, and the sunlight upon her hair it must be so. Where in the world could the simple-hearte- d old blind man have What come upon this rare tiling? did it mean? Upon the top, an altar, burning, with two' strangly garbed figures bent to t6e earth in attitudes of woe. What had this thing originally contained?

If the woman had known of this box he believed that she would have spoken of it in that hour when they had been together for the last time. .Mayhap she meant to speak of it, in that morning whieh never came to 'her. It must have belonged to the old man alone. The escritoire was carefully placed within the brother's home, tSie broken part repaired, and here the silver box was again placed until such a time as he should find a solution to the mystery. Among the effects of his sister, he had found the will. She left all lo 'him. And in a tiny closet at tho head of her lcd, he found old government bonds to the amount of mauy thousands of dollars. Among the few articles of clothing, he found a black satin apron, qniltcd in circles, and heavy as a coat of mail. Examining these circles, be found that gold pieces had been placed as closely as possible between the two layers of satin, and each had been quilted 'round carefully. Then the man went about doing good with the fortune so unexpectedly obtained. He made many a poor man happy, choosing always those most destitute. If a curse should linger 'round the strange box, he would by good deeds try to break its spell. And in his wanderings about the city he sought out all forStreet-faki- rs eign men. and fortune-tellers received his patronage, and one day the words of a strange Hindoo caused him to journey toward the desert, with the coffin carefully concealed. Ho wandered long, and found no'ne who could read the mystic symbols. And finally, when he had almost despaired, there came to him an aged Arab, who for much gold, solved the problem at last. "The characters are old. and very man. badly written," said the old "They must have been traced by one dying. The words are in an ancient language, too, but I will try to read it correctly." Sitting .upon the sand near the edge of the desert, the old man pronounced the words in faltering ac- geance. thing.

"He was a student, too. this noble youth, and being with him in the solitude, I learned much from his companionship.
