MISCELLV^EOLS. 

A CH V>'GE OF BASE. 

BY RCTn CTTESTKllFrKLD. 

David Tnoupsou'e uew house was 
finished at last, the litter of carpenters, 
masoQ:) ami painters ■was cleared away, 
and now he had brought with him his in- 
tended wife, that they might plan f )r lit- 
tia^ it up. 

David had been engaged three years, 
but being a prudent young man, he said 
he c<»ulil never marry till he had a fair 
start in the world. He thought he had it 
now, since, in addition to youth, health, a 
hoiue !ind "^0 acres of land, Mr. Burch, 
the great mill owner, had lately made 
him iii.s foreman, a po3iti(m he had long 
coveted. The weddmg day was therefore 

fixed for September , three moKths 

hence. 

For once in the world's history, no one 
found any fault with the match, but all 
declared the happy pair were very well 
suitid for each other. 

S&llie Dearing, the bride elect, was 
neither a beauty, a belle, nor a genius — she 
Wiia just a sweet womanly woman, with 
domestic habits, and a great many little 
feminine tastes and lancies. 

As to the Dearing family, they were re- 
spectable, ro<U and branch, and always 
had been as far back as memory or records 
could go. 

At the present time there were none of 
then> remaining in town save Sallie and 
her parents, who were getting to be elder- 
ly people when she was born. 

"It's a good house find thoroughly 
built," s-iid David, looking around him 
with satisfaction. " I allowed none but 
the best materials to go into it. It might 
have been done a third cheaper, but I said 
no— it is for a lifetime." 

" And so bright and sunny,'^ said Sallie, 
" it seems like home already. Some 
houses strike a chill as soon as you enter 
thtm, but I don't think ours can ever be 
one of that kind." 

"I don't think any house could, with 
you for its mistress," returned David, gal- 
lantly. 

In every apartment Sallie found some- 
thing to praise and admire, from the b:iy- 
window in the parlor to the wash-boilers 
in the back kitchen. Opening the door 
of the btd-rooin on the ground floor, she 
remarked—" This shall be our father's 
and mot her'a room. It's just near enough 
to the parlor tor company, and just for 
enough off to be ([uiet. You must have 
planned it on purpose for them, such a 
dear, good David as you are," and the 
young lady laid her hand caressingly on 
his arm. 

David took no notice of the slight ad- 
vance, however, but stood twirling his 
mustache, and lo<3king thoughtful and em- 
barrassed. 

^ " Of course my parents arc to live with 
us?" said Sjillie, questiouingly, after a 
pause. 

" I feared you might be expecting it," 
answered David, " and I have evaded the 
subject in such a way that I hoped you 
would understand mo without any t.\- 
planation. It seems you did not, however, 
and the explanation may as well come 
now as any time. If you will think the 
matter over, you will see that this thing 
cannot l>e." 

"Why not?" 

" Because nolxidy could reasonably ex- 
pect a young man to take such a burthen 
uptin his shoulders." 

" But they'll not be a burthen upon3'ou 
— at least not much. My parents are not 
paupers." 

" And who'll take care of them in their 
old age?" asked David. 

" Who should, but the daughter they 
took en re of when She was a baby?" re- 
plied Siillie. 

" I want my wife to 'cait on ?n«." 

" I ditn'i think I should ever fail in my 
duty to my husband." 

" I'm sure you wouldn't, my darling, so 
now it's settled, and we'll say no more 
about it." 

" David, I put to you the same 'juestion 
you put to me. Who will take care of my 
parents in their old age ? Who, if their 
daughter f irstikes them ?" 

" I don't ask you to forsake them," saU 
David, impatiently; " that's just like your 
high tlown way of putting things, f am 
willinif you i^hiHiM do as much tor your 
parents as other people do for theirs ; hut 
who hesitates to marry and leave the oltl 
folks behind? It^is the way of the world. 
The young bird for?akcs the old nest, and 
build* herselt a new one." 

" But have you never read how the stork 
that was young and strong winged, car- 
ried the old one on its back? and would 
you have me less dutiful than the fowls of 
the air?" replied Sallif. 

" After ;ili, the brute creation are no 
patterns for u?," said David, seeing how 
tvillio had turned the tables upon him. 
••Anddoe-in't.the Srriplures say that a man 
shall have lather an»i ninther and cleave 
onto his wife? Answer me that. Oi 
i-onrse, the same rule ho!ds good for 
women, too. So now, my dear, let us drop 
the subiect. I haven t ^hown vou ihe 



second story yet I hope you will admire 
the staircase, for 1 guite pride myself 
upon it," and the young man started to 
lead the way up stairs. 

" It is no use to go any further," said 
Sallie, mournfully, yet firmly. 

" What do you mean by that ?" asked 
David, pausing and looking back. 

" That I shall live where my parents 
do." 

"Without me?" 

" That's for you to decide." 

"AndlAaw decided. Of all the wo- 
men in the world I have chosen you — 
but when I marry you, I do not marry 
your family." 

"Very well, David." 

" How am I to understand that ?" 

" That you and I part company." 

*' Very well, it is, then. But let me tell 
you this, I'm not the man to be tritled 
with. It is now or never with me ." 

" Never,"— said S.-illie. 

" And let me tell you farther, that if 
you won't be mistress ot this house, there 
are plenty that will. There's Jennie 
Liurns, the handsomest girl in the country 
—I will not say she is to be had for the 
asking ; but I have reason to know she 
thiuks tavorably of me. As lo this freak 
of yours, it is nothing more nor less than 
sheer obstinacy umler the guise of filial 
piety." 

"'Hard words avail nothing; but this I 
will say, that whoever you bring here, be 
it Jennie Bums or another, i scarcely 
think she can be to you what I could have 
been— I, who have loved you so long and 
faithf'jlly. And, David, when you shut 
me out of your life and home because I 
refused to break the Fiith Commandment, 
take cire that you do not shut out God's 
blessiug at the same time." 

Sallie had advanced to the outside door 
and was standing on the threshold, and 
the setting sun, which, through the hazy 
atmosphere, was red as blood, shone full 
upon her. As she said the last words she 
raised her hand to heaven, and, bathed in 
that crimson light, she reminded David 
of a martyr in the flames. He thought 
that she had never looked so noble, and 
that he hivl never loved her so well, but 
he answered not a word. He walked 
home with her in silence, and refused to 
enter the house. 

.Mr. Burch, besides being owner of the 
mills, was an amateur farmer. He took 
delight in drives and strange breeds ol 
animals, and rare specimens of plants. 
He seldom visited the mills, leaving the 
Ciire of the business almost entirely to his 
foreman. Beyond these facts, the towns- 
pc-^ilo knew little of him, for he lived in 
great seclusion at his place, Riverbank, 
which was a mile or two out of the vil- 
lage. 

Having heard that his foreman was 
about to be married, he offered him the 
prettiest Aldersey heifer on his farm as a 
present, and invited him to come and se- 
lect it himself. David thanked him very 
heartily at the tim«, but h:id never availed 
himself of the ott'er. Mr. Barch supposed 
this might be owing to diffidence, and one 
day rallied him on the subject. 

" I'm not going to be married, sir— at 
leart cot at present," said David, looking 
glum. 

" Indeed 1 I hope nothing serious has 
occurred,' said >lr. Burch. 

"It'sjall off," said David, shiiking his 
head. 

" A lover's quarrel, perhaps. If thit's 
all, don't despair. Young ladies like to 
be coaxed." 

" Not Sallie, sir," said David. 

" I suppose then she ha.s taken some 
new fancy. They're tickle creatures, these 
woratnkind. What suits them to-day, of- 
fends them to-morrow. Well, cheer up, my 
lad, and learn to get along without them, 
as I do," said Mr. Burch, smiling and lay- 
ing his hand lightly on David's shoulder. 

" I'm certain Sallie never loved any one 
but me." answered David, decidedly, "and 
since you are so kind as to take an inter- 
est in the affair. I will tell you the truth 
about it. She was unreasonable enough 
to expect to saddle me with the care of 
her old father and mother." 

" And you could not aff jrd to take such 
a charge. Well, I am glad you told ma, 
for that is easily settled. Rather than 
two young people should be disappointed, 
I'll raise your salary." 

" It was not just that," said David; "the 
Dearings have a little property of their 
own— but she had some finespun notions 
about the matter, ami wanted to take them 
into the family." 

" Oh !" said Mr. B., and paused abruptly, 
seemingly intently occupied with punch- 
ing little holes in the ground with his 
gold-headed cane. "One shouldn't be 
hasty in affairs of so much importance," 
jaid he at length. "Perhaps you may yet 
induce her to reconsider." 

" It would be of no use to try," said Da- 
■vid, " for you might as well attempt to 
move the sun as to move S.illie Dearing 
when once she gets set upon anything she 
tancies to be her duty." 

" Very unreasonable truly," said Mr. B.; 
but there was a touch of sarcasm in his 
tone. "And you could not think of yield- 
ing yourself?"' 

" Never, sir, never." 

" Well, you shall have the AKlcrney all 
the same, for I suppose you won't sell 
your place ?" 

" Not I, sir, nor buy a rope to hang my- 
self with, either." 

Mr. Burch laughed, and as he walked 
aw.iy he said to himself, "I guess the heifer 
will console him for his loss," 

David did not, indeed, buy a rope to 
hang himself; but he slipped his neck into 
the matrimonial noose in the course of a 
few months, and moved into his new house 
precisely as he had planned to do — the 
only dillerence being that Jcannie Bumi 
was his bride instead of Sallie Dearjng. 

Sallie, meanwhile, was not left entirely 
without consolation, for, if she had lost a 
lover, she had gained a friend, and that 
friend was no less a personage than Mr. 
Burch. 

She was much surprised one day, on 
opening the front do<>r in answer to the 
summous of the great brass kni>cker, to 
behold him standing on the step, and his 
horse pawing at the gate — about as much 
surprisetl as you would be if the statue of 
Washington, which adorns the square, 
should dismount from its rampant steed 
and pay you a visit. 

He extended his hand smilingly, and in- 
quireil for her father and mother, upon 
which Sallie inviteu him in. He said he 
had been tr)-ing to obtain some of the old 
English straw&rry plants. He had the 
Hovoy seeiiling and the Bartlett, and in 
tact almost every other variety: but the 
old Knglish had become very rare, and he 
was told that Mr. Dearing had it. 

Upon which Mr. Dearmg said that he 
b.ad, and that Mr. Burch w.*8 welcome to 
s«une. And then they fell into a long 
conversation .about horticulture in gen- 
eral, and Mrs. Dearing treated him to a 
ghnis of her elderberry wine. So he 
stayed an hour or more, and though he 
addressed but few worda to Sallie, his 



hazel eyes were upon her even while he 
talked to her father. And so, upon one 
pretext or another, he continued to come, 
until at last he came without any pretext 
at all. 

The old people valued his society on 
their own account not a little, but more 
because, as they said, the companionship 
of a gentleman like Mr. Burch was .such 
an advantage to a young girl like their 
daughter. As for Sallie, she regarded 
himi as a dear brother, or at least she 
thought she did, until her old friend, Mrs. 
Burdock— the same who was so scandal- 
ized by the "pink ribbons"— destroyed 
the illusion. 

It was one afternoon in early June, 
when Mr. Dearing slept in his armchair, 
his wife darned his stockings, and Sallie 
sat stitching away upon some pretty piece 
of nonsense— which, truth to tell, she was 
much addicted to doing— that Mrs. Bur- 
dock stalked in like some gaunt and griz- 
ly Fate. After discoursiiig a short time 
about the lateness of the season, the pros- 
pect for crops— Mrs. Black's " rheumatiz" 
and Mr. Brown's broken leg— she came 
at last to the subject uppermost in her 
mind, and which had been the real mo- 
tive of her call. 

" So Mr. Burch is going lo be mar- 
ried," she remarked, looking keenly at 
Sallie. That young woman gave a little 
start which caused her to prick her finger 
and stain her work with blood, and, let 
us hope she derived a momentary satis- 
faction from the fancy that the cambric 
was Mrs. Burdock, and the needle a dag- 
ger. She did not, however, look up nor 
make any reply, but her mother said, in 
the most commonplace way in the world : 

" Is ho ? Who is the lady ?" 

" That I hain't found out, but he's fixin' 
up his house with the beautifulest new 
things. I made an arrant there and saw 
'em myself. It must be the Queen of 
Sheby at least," and Sirs. Burdock 
cackled at her own wit. "He's been 
down to Boston three times in one week — 
only think of it," she added. 

What followed Sallie did not hear— she 
felt confused and bewildered, and was 
thankful when she could steal away to 
her chamber. Then she reproached her- 
self for feeling distressed at the news. 
" What is it to me," thought she, 
" whether he is married or not ? He has 
been the kindest and dearest of friends, 
and I hoped things mi^ht continue as 
they were, but I had no right to expect it. 
Well, whatever happens, I shall always 
reverence him as the noblest man in the 
world— nobody can deprive me of that 
comfort." 

Like many other young ladies, Sallie 
was a little given to superlatives, as may 
be seen. 

The next day Mr. Burch called, smil- 
ing, as handsome as ever. He confirmed 
the truth of Mrs. Burdock's statement 
with regard to refitting his houge, and 
paid Sallie the compliment of asking the 
benefit of her taste in completing the ar- 
rangements. 

" Will you put on your hat, and go with 
me now ?" he asked. 

" Certainly," she said, and tried to add, 
" with pleasure," but the words got no 
further than her throat. 

She remembered how she had once 
gone over another house with another 
bridegroom, but it was not that memory 
which caused her to sigh as she crossed 
the threshold at Riverbank. 

"Indeed, Mr. Burch, you had little need 
of any taste but your own," she ob.served. 

They had nearly completed their sur- 
vey of the house, and were now standing 
by a recess filled with the choicest of 
plants. 

" Then you are pleased ?" he asked. 

" I am charmed." 

"It still lacks one thing without which 
even Paradise was not complete," he 
said—" its Eve." 

" A difllculty which will soon be sup- 
plied, I suppose," said she, turning her 
back on Mr. Burch, and looking intently 
into the heart of a calla-lily. 

" That depends on you," he said. 

"On me '." exclaimed Sallie, facing him 
now ; " how can that be ?" 

" Because, unless you consent to marry 
me yourself, I shall remain single." 

"Impossible !" said she. 

" Have I presumed too much ?" he ask- 
ed, regarding her earnestly. 

" I meant impossible that you could 
think of me," stammered simple Sallie, 
blushing rosily. 

" But seeing that it is not impossible — 
what then ?•' 

" Why, then—" 

" I shall fill up the blank to suit my- 
self," said he, bending lower, and taking 
her hands in his, but, to his surprise, she 
drew back. 

" There are some things that may cause 
you to alter your mind," said she. 

" Well 1" asiid he, and waited for what 
she had to say next. 

" I have been engaged before," she said. 

"I know it." 

" To your foreman." 

" I know it." 

" I have two old people dependent on 
mv care." 

'" I know it." 

" And I can never leave them." 

"And I never 'wish you to. It was 
hearing of your devotion to them that 
first letl me to seek your acquaintance. 
I know so dutiful a daughter must make 
a true and faithful wife, and so I set my- 
self to the task of winning your affection. 
Have I succeeded "/" 

Sallie was again wrapt in contempla- 
tion of the calla-lily. But Mr. Burch 
was a man who was not to be put off with 
any evasions, so he repeated, " Have I 
succeeded ?" 

" Yes," said Sallie. 

Then he kissed her, as it was high time 
he shotild do, and said a great many lack- 
adaisical things to her, of which this is 
one: 

" I won't say that your personal graces 
had no effect upon me ; but then 1 must 
have loved you if you had been as gaunt 
and grim as " 

" Mrs. Burdock," suggested Sallie. Both 
laughed, and he finished his sentence — 
" instead of the sweetest little lady in all 
the world, as you are." 

So Mr. Burch fulfilled the prediction of 
Mrs. Burdock, and brought a wife to Riv- i 
erbank ; but that gooil woman was sorely i 
disappointed that the expected " Queen of ! 
Sheby " should turn out to be nobody but I 
little Sallie Dearing. t 

Mr. and Mrs. Dearing were very happy [ 
in their new home ; nor do I think their . 
son-in-law ever regarded them as a burden ] 
or wished them away, for he was more ! 
than once heard to remark, — " There is 
nothing which gives such dignity to a I 
house as the presence of serene old age." 

No special misfortunes befel David ' 
Thompson, and the world voted him a! 
prosperous man, yet sometimes, when 
vexed to ttie soul by a vain, frivolous and 
heartless wife, he thinks of one whose 
steadfast spirit might have b«en hh stay '. 
and comfort. , 



And sometimes, when returning home 
at evening, he fancies he seesstandiog on 
his threshold, by the critoson light of the 
setting sun, a figure with one hand raised 
to heaven, and these are the words it ut- 
ters :— 

"And, David, when you shut me out of 
your life and home because I refuse to 
break the Fifth Commandment, take care 
that you do not shut out God's blessing at 
the same time !" — New jingland Farmer. 



The Worth of Work. 

We who labor,- and so manv of us 
must— may well stop occasionally and 
pondo" over the real woi*th of our work. 
Not its worth in dollars and cents,— not 
what it is to bring us or may profit 
another,— but Avhat it is really worth to 
us in developing our Ch ristian character, 
in streagthening us, in helping us onward 
and upward. For work should have this 
tendency. We hold it next thing to a 
crime, that any man should perform a ser- 
vice tiiat degrades hims<;lf. He sins thus 
against himself. Against himself first, 
and then indirectly agaiast the whole of 
mankind, for in lowering; his own nature 
the average brotherhood of man is 
lowered. 

Work should be ennobling. Even the 
most meniai, jirovided it have not some 
element of baseness in it, may be made 
so. It is our privilege to invest daily 
labor with ai interest and a thought above 
the thing itself. The thing we do 
perishes, ma/hap, but the thought with 
which we clothe it, and which its kind 
henceforth sjmbolizes, lives on forever. 
And so the th".ng done 'n worth to us its 
symbol, — aye, even much more. Each 
symbol is a suggestion, and in the fruitful 
mind suggestion multiply themselves and 
bear fruit even lo an hundred fold. 

If we let our vork grow distasteful and 
uncongenial, it it of veryr little worth in- 
deed. In real, lading benefits it will not 
avail the value of ^ straw. There is small 
ilegree of wholesome good born of dis- 
taste. Our duty then is, seeing that we 
should reap as rich harvest as we may 
from the field w^here we glean, to take 
kindly to the work nnder our hand. It 
may not be the labor we most like, but, 
if not degrading, we can make it return 

?;oodly reward. But if we continually 
ret and repine over it, — if we say to our- 
selves daily, " This is not my forte ; this 
is beneath my powers; ".his is unsatisfy- 
ing ; would I could find f ther work to do," 
— we are verily starving ourselves, cheat- 
ing. our better natures oat of that which 
is right within our grasp. 

To be sure, we should strive to obtain 
such work as we feel ourselves best fitted 
for. Circumstances permitting, we should 
take up that labor most in harmony with 
our tastes. But this ci.nnot always be 
done. Men may not always elect their 
place and their toil. Work comes to us 
often. Duty takes hold of us, and will 
not let us go. And so it comes about, as 
we have seen, that life-time labors are 
now and then life time trials, chafing and 
wearing. Who is at fault, that they do 
so chafe and wear? Not God, surely: 
therefore it must be ourselves. Failing 
to realize the true value of our doing — 
what it may be made worth lo our life— 
we forever look beyond it to some far- 
away duty that naay never coma lo us, 
and tojwhich it is designed we shall never 

Yet, though we may not always choose 
the work we would prefer, il is within 
our power to refuse that which will do us 
harm. Is that power always exercised? 
Look at the many doing Satan's service, 
and answer. There is degrading work 
beckoning on every hand. God pity 
those who respond to its call ! Good, 
honest, loyal toil aboundtj. It will soil no 
one's soul. It can be made healthfully 
efl'ective. Its worth to tie manhood and 
womanhood of to-day, if only it be faith- 
fully performed, and with a spirit to press 
from it all its richness, can hardly be esti- 
mated. Workers everywhere ! see that 
you garner the worth "tf your work!— 
Exchange.

A Chapter Upon Figure.s. 

About two years ago, the following ar- 
rangement of figures appeared in the 
Waredey Ma{/azine, in which, if we mis- 
take not, it was styled "A Curiosity ":

Counting the above upward, across, or 
from corner to corner, it will be found 
that the amount in each instance is 84. It 
is a clever hap-hazard combination of fig- 
ures, without any rule for their formation. 
The proper arrangement of figures in odd- 
numbered squares has, however, been 
long known ; they are easily made, and 
no matter which way tht y may be count- 
ed, will give the same amount in each 
column, as may be seen in either of the 
following squares :

To make these sciuares, we begin by 
placing No. 1 in the middle place in 
the top row ; we then put N'o. 2 at the 
b<^Uom of the next row to the right, 
and oblique upward to'itae right with our 
next figures, until we fill the place in the 
last perpendicular row, when we carry 
our next figure to the left hand place on 
the horizontal row next above it ; we 
again oblique upward t) the right, until 
we reach cither to the top or a filled 
place — if to the top, we place our next 
figure at the foot of tht next row to the 
right, and oblique upw:ird as before, to 
the right : if to a filled place, we put our 
next number directly under the last one 
made, and oblique upwai-d to the right, as 
before, until we come to the top, a filled 

Elace, or the last row on the right — if the 
ktter, we go to the left jtlace on the hori- 
zontal row next above— und ao on to the 



end, when the highest and last number 
will be found at tne foot of the row con- 
taining No. 1. When we get to the top 
place on the right hand column, we can- 
not drop lo the bottom of the next row 
to the right, as there is none, and there- 
fore place our next number under the last 
one made, and then go to the top of the 
left-hand column. 

And now, having shown what has been 
done in forming these squares, we "will 
give a few of our own thoughts upon the 
matter, and, although offered for a pas- 
lime, we have the hope that they will 
be found worthy of consideration. We 
have said that the Waverley com- 
bination was formed without rule. This 
we repeal ; but we have discovered how 
similar ones may be formed, and how to 
know the exact number any square — be it 
odd or even numbered, large or small — 
should contain when the numbers are 
added consecutively together, as well as 
th« total of each column, horizontal, per- 
pendicular, or diagonal. Thus, lo find 
what the square should contain, we mul- 
tiply the number of places in the square 
by half the number of places, and lo the 
product add the other half; and, to show 
what each column of the square should 
contain, we divide the sum of its square 
by one of its parallel sides, and we have 
the answer. 'Thus : 

3 X 3=9 X 4>^+4K=45-^3=15. 

4 X 4=16 X 8+8=13G--4=S4. 

r, X 5=25 X 13^ + 121^=825-4-5=65. 

6 X 6=36 X 18-+-18=6U6-T-6=111. 

7 X 7=49 X 241^+241^ = 1,235^7=175. 

8 X 8=64 X 33+33=2,o80-h8=360. 

9 X 9=81 X 401^+401^=3,331-h0=369. 

10 X 10=100 X 50-^50=5,050-^10=505. 
30 X 30=400 X 300 + 200 = 80,300 -^ 30= 

4,010. 

40 X 40=1,090 X 800-f800 x 1, 280,000 -f- 40 
=33,000. 

80 X 80=6,400 :< 3,300 f- 3,300 = 30,483,- 
200 -^- 80 =350,040. 

And so on, as far as we may wish to go. 
The truthfulness of these rules can be 
easily tested— for, as 1+2-f 3+4+5-1-6+7 
+8+9=45, and 45+10+11+13+13+14+ 
15+16=136, so 136+17+18+19+30+21 
+32+23+24+25=325; and so it will be 
found with all. We will now give a few 
even-numbered squares, commencing with 
two of the same number of places as the 
one in the Waverley, each ol" which shows 
a dilferent combination : 

4x4=16x8+8=136-r-4=34, the num- 
ber in each column.

With the square of 36 places, we have 
6x6=36x18 + 18=666, the sum of the 
square ; and this, divided by 6— one of the 
parallels — gives 111 as the sum of each 
column :

The above S(iuare may be counted in a 
hundred different ways, and always with 
the same result. Il will also be observed 
that the first and tenth parallels of this 
square, when added together, make a 
hundred and one ; so also do the second 
and ninth, the third and eighth, the 
fourth and seventh, and the fifth and sixth. 
A similar arrangement will be observed 
in the smaller squares ; and, as the first 
and last numbers must be added together, 
the parallels will always count one more 
than the number of places in the square.

If all who are smitten with the love of 
fame could become personally acfjuainted 
with a few really famous people, their eyes 
would be speedily opened. They would 
find that the laurel-crowned goddess who 
seemed so charming and so enchanting to 
them was utterly ignored and unthought 
of by those who had secured her smiles. 
They would find that scarcely any fact 
appeared of less value to such people than 
the fact that they were famous They 
would find them working hard and pain- 
fully for the development of some great 
idea, or the accomplishment of some great 
task for his own sake, and without the 
slightest reference lo the admiration their 
labors might happen to excite in the minds 
of men. There are men who live for 
fame, and who are merely famous without 
the greatness on which true fame can alone 
be based ; but a single glance at the inner 
life of such men would be sufficient lo re- 
veal the utter hoUowness of such a life 
and its entire lack of capacity to satisfy 
tlie mind. 

Agassiz is a truly great man, but what 
does he care for the gaping crowd that 
wonders at learning. His absorption in 
his work is so complete that, in addition 
to the love of fame, another of the ruling 
passions of the human mind has lost its 
influence over him. Wheu urged to 
devote a portion of his time to lectunng on 
acojunt of his great popularity and the 
amount of money he would be sure to 
derive from the plan, he replied, " I have 
no time lo make money." 

What did Beethoven care for fame ? 
Once on a certain occasion when he was in 
despair by reason of his increasing deaf- 
ness, and he was almost tempted to com- 
mit suicide, he says: Art— she alone- 
she held me back. Oh ! it seemed to me 
impossible to quit this world before I had 
accomplished all of which I felt myself 
capable, and therefore I preserved this im- 
happy lile." 

It is needless to multiply instances. Our 
position is abundantly verified by facts. 
Therefore we say to our friends : Do not 
be misled by the glitter of popular ap- 
plause. The approval of thoughtful and 
judicious friends is worth more than the 
senseless shouts of the whole world. Be- 
sides, there is only one way in which true 
fame can be achieved, and that is by doing 
one's work well — Neio Vork MunicU 
GazetU. - 

In a number of the London M'tg-ninc, 
VA'h), is this statement : " Boston, New

tain Theopliilu*- Cushing, were gathered 
87 boshels of apples, and in ntimber

The Old Sawmill. 

BY IIKNRY WARD BKECHKR. 

Oh, that blessed day I 

What was that? Fourth of July? 
General training day? Thanksgiving? 
Christmas • None of all these. Far more 
important to our heart was the day when 
we first went a fishing alone ! 

Whether we had permission we cannot 
at this late period certainly determine. 
We presume, from the recollection of the 
an.xiely, and the distinct remembrance of 
general exhilaration, that we had a dis- 
pensation on that day to roam. 

There is a vague impression, too, of 
digging worms, of putting a piece of twine 
on to a pole. Then went we forth east- 
ward toward the River Bantam. Now the 
River Bantam was lo our young heart 
what the Jordan was to a good and patri- 
otic Jew. It wasjthe chief stream in our 
neigh borhocxl. It was the chief resort 
for swimming purposes. For, though il was 
hardly knee-deep, and, in many pl&cee, 
easily jumped across, yet there werelpools, 
and a notable one, called " Lord's Hole" 
(doubtless from a Litchfield family of the 
name of Lord), where a small boy could 
go in " over-head." Il waH one of those 
clear brooks— a mere brook, which mostly 
brawls over pebble-stones, now and then 
widening into quite a sheet, and then, like 
men who have been too generous, grow- 
ing narrow again, and deep.* Along its 
banks grew alder bushes in abundance, 
Bud here and there great trees reached 
their branches over the stream and 
watched t'aemselvcs in the water below. 

Not a great way above Lord's Hole was 
the "old sawmill;" not that there was 
then a mill, or even a mill-dam, but tradi- 
tion said that there had been one, and the 
legend was probable, inasmuch as two 
steep banks on either side, sloping up 
some twenty feet, seemed to have formed 
the wings of a dam ; and, the water made 
a fall as if, underneath, there was the re- 
mains of some obstruction. 

On the blessed day above aentioned, a 
barefooted boy might have been seen on a 
June afternoon, with his alder pole on 
his shoulder, tripping through 'the 
meadow, where dandelions and wild ge- 
raneums were in bloom, and steering for 
the old saw-mill. As soon as the meadow 
was crossed, the fence scaled, and a de- 
scent begun,* all familiar objects were 
gone, and the overpowering consciousness 
of being alone set one's imagination into a 
dance of fear. Could we find our waj' 
back ? What if a big bull should come 
out of those bushes V What if a great big 
man should come along and carry us off? 
To a six-year old boy these were very se- 
rious matters. And nothing could have 
so well tested the eagerness of our purpose 
as perseverance under these soul-bewil- 
dering suggestions. For realities, in after- 
life, are seldom so impressive as imagina- 
tions are in early life. A child's fears are 
cruel They are to him the signs of abso- 
lute realities, and he is quite unable lo 
reason on them, and is helpless to repel or 
to endure them. The fears of our own 
childhood constitute a chapter of menlal 
philosophy. 

But no sooner did we see the sparkle of 
the water than our soul grew calm again, 
and happy. 

Now, for the first time in our lives, we 
put on a worm. We threw in the hook 
and trembled all over. 

The hook and the bait fell upon the 
wrinkled water, went quietly dowu the 
stream, and swept in near the shore, 
where some projecting stone roofed over 
a little pool. Out of that pool our little 
eyes saw something dart, and our little 
hands, all a-tremble, fell something pull. 
In an instant, wilh a spasm of energy, we 
drew back the line, there was a fiash in 
the air, a wiggling flasb, and something 
smote the rocky, gravelly bank behind. 
Scrambling up, we found a shiner, but, 
alas, smashed lo pieces ! Soon another 
and another fared in the same manner, 
and it was long before we could subdue 
our nerve so as not to dash the fish to 
pieces. Our courage grew every moment. 
What did ice care if there was a bull in 
the bushes ? What if a beggar man sh^mld 
come along? What if a great black dog 
should — but that thought was a little loo 
serious. Black dogs were terrors not lo 
be lightly thought of, even by a six-year 
old urchin, who had caught fish, alone, 
too ! And so gathering up two 
roach and three shiners, we started 
home. Up the sloping hill we ran, 
till our father's house shone out from 
among the trees, and then, with the dig- 
nity and nonchalance of a conqueror, we 
prepared to make a triumphal entrance. 
But here, as ofcen happens in the remin 
iscences of our childhood, the vision fails. 
We can recollect nothing of our reception. 
Since then we have fished in many a 
stream and lake, and in the deep sea— 
but never with half the exhilaration of 
that first joyful hour upon the Bantam \ 

Not even there, again, would the fire be 
rc-kindkd 1 For, not long after, taking a 
younger brother, to be a marvejl ng wit 
ness of our success, we went again to the 
old sawmill. The air was disenchanted. 
The jiads and bushes had no spirit in 
them. The broik gurgled and rushed. 
We caught our fish, a few, but without 
craze, and came solemnly home, wondering 
what the reason could be that the first 
time could be had but once. 

Since then we have seen many grown 
np boys seeking to reproduce the first §en 
sations and to make novelties perpetnaL 
But each day must provide its own first 
times. Those of yesterday arc shrunk 
and faded. — CJiritttian Union. 



The San Jose (Cal.) Mercury of Aoril 
2 relates the following incident : " The 
Mayor brought into our office yesterday, 
a little latl, who gave his name as Robert 
Graham, and says he is 14 years of age, 
but looks several years younger. This 
lad tells a singular story. He says he left 
Kalamazoo, Michigan, about a month ago, 
without any money; he did so because 
his step-mother, with whom he had been 
strapping, turned him out of doors, and he 
thought he could reach a married sister 
supposed to be living in this valley. He 
got on the train coming west, and when 
the conductors would put him off the cars 
he would get on the next train, spending 
intervals at stations along the railroad. 
Sometimes passengers, on learning his 
condition, would give him a little money 
to get his meals with, but he often had to 
go hungry. But never faltering, he 
worked his way along in this style, until 
he traveled the whole distance to Cali- 
fornia, and Is now in Ban Jose. He ia an 
interesting boy, rather delicate, and gives 
an interesting account of his adventures. 
The married sister he wishes to find mar- 
rie<l a man named Andrew Taylor. Her 
maiden name was Alice frraham. The 
boy is now stopping at one of the hotel«, 
at the exi»cn8c of the Mayor, until such 
time as his sister can be heard from."

igaate as " limb," or " lower limb.'' In Eng- 
land and all over Europe that littie subterfuge 
: would be pronounced ludeiicate and affected ; 
' and it certainly is the latter, if not the former. 
; But to our story : 

I White, symmetrical feminine legs are said to 
be difsppeariog Irom American soil. .They are 
' so much in the ascendant in England that la- 
dies of rank have invented a new mothod of 
i making known their fair proportions. We 
I read in the March number of the Galaxy that 
I in a work just published, two American medi- 
I eal men put forth the gross slander that " a 
j handsome leg is a rarity — we had almost said 
an impo.<:sibility — among American women !" 
I We do not believe the ungallant libel, though 
I American ladies certainly are not in the haoit 
of publishing their charms by having casts tak- 
{ an of their shapely legs, as an ornament for < 
drawing room tables, or to be sold for the ben- I 
eCt of the vendor of casts, or to be circulated ! 
among friends as a delicate token of friendship ' 
aiid valuable work of art. 

What we are about to relate appears at the | 
ftri"t blush so incredible that we hold ourselves ; 
responsible for its exact truth. Upon the : 
drawing room tabic of a lady of rank in Lon- \ 
don — a lady of iwgh position and irrcproacha- j 
ble character — may be seen, beneath a glass j 
ease, a lovely dimpled little foot, delicate ankle 
and rounded calf, up to the knee joint ; it is the 

east of the leg of Lady . the hostess. 

In Soho square there i^ a small, rather hun- 

ble-looking snop, in which you can purcha.ie, 

; fnr five shillings, a cast of one of the most ex- 

I qnisite of legs ; the original (in tbo flesh) be- 

j longs to Lady de G and R, who went 

to tbis little lihop iurog., and had her perfect 
I leg moulded, and afterwards generoudly gave 
I tho shopman the privileice of selling copies of 
I the cart, which he does daily, for it was quick- 
i ly discovered to wkom the beauteous leg be- 
j longed. 

One lady, the wife of a Mayor of a town in 
! the provinties, oame to London an 1 bad two 
I rasis taken of Ler leg — one cutle, and one with 
the n^at little shoo, st eking and garter. 
! Strange to say, (though no artist will call it 
I vtrange), tho leg with the stocking and gurter 
' produced nn efloct much farther removed from 
i Modo'tj than tho leg quite nnclad. Brucciani, 
! the east vender in Convent Garden, drives a 
I bri^k trade in casting ladies' leg». and has any 
I quantity of models of all descriptions taktn 
{ from life, and chiefly from noble life, for sale. 
' How this leg mania ori<;inated we have nut 
heard, but there is certainly some explanation 
I for this sudden pai>fion auoni^ the aristocratio 
I fair to have their legs r'»cogni«ed ; perhaps it 
: is only because "a thing of beauty ii a joy for- 
ever."

in Richmond, which was crowded with per- ; 
sons assembled to hear tho decision of the

•'Paris by Sunlight and GaBll<>ht.>' A 

vork dttcriptiic of tk» Myiteriet and Miterict, 
the Virtiiet, Vicei, SpUndora, and Crime* of th* 
City of Parii. — By Jamei D. McCabe, Jr. Na- 
tional Publinhing Co., Chicago, 

The eagerness with which all Americans who 
can spare the time and means, rush oif to Paris 

erery year, has become almost a national char- I j Pl/^ + Ti 

octeristio. Indeed, this is not to be wondered JapailGSe \jiOXu.. 
at, for of all placos in tho world, Paris offers j 
the greatest attractions to the lovorcf pleasure, I 
and what people love pleasure so well as our 
own countrymen? This most interesting of 
cities displays to the novico its enchantments I 
in two aspect" so widely different, that the au- I 
thor shows us Paris in two different phases — 
"By Sunlight" and "By Gaslight." Tho qnan- j 
tity of serious and veritable history presented 
by this work, as connected with the various j 
objects of interest in Paris, is immense. That 
of the Palaces and other public buildings is 
exhaustive and complete. Tho reader is made 
acquainted with all the proud triumphal monu- 
ments of the past and present eras. lie is lead 
through the grandest galleries of art, and the 
history and descriptions of the leading objeets 
of sculpture and painting, are laid before him. 
He is introduced into the family of the Em- 
peror, and carried through every phase of Pari- 
sian ^ooial life, lie is lead up to the garrets 
of the pretty (JrisettC:?, and listens to the sto- 
ries of their lovej ; and is mado a onfidant in 
the secret intrigues of the ladies of rank. Ue 
visits the Queens of tho Dzmi-moude in their 
gorgeous houses, and counts their lovers by 
their jewels. lie luxuriates in the delicacies of 
French cooking and Parisian drinks, and 
smokes his Cigarette at night on tbo glittering 
Boulevard. Ho has tho curtain drawn back 
and is shown the dark mysteries, the rogueries, 
villainies, and the frightful crimes of the City. 
He ia amused, instructed, startled, thrilled, hor- 
rified by turns, and when he lays the book 
aside, finds it hard to believe that he has not 
actually seen Paris for himself, and participat- 
ed, in per.son, in the scenes of which ho has 
been rtjadiug. The book is illustrated with 
150 splendid engravings, made in Paris, by the 
best artists of France, under the personal su- 
pervision of the author. It is sold only by 
subscription.

Eighty to ninety per cent, of oil fires are

no mt ans to put them out. Five minutes de-

flames, the damage by flooding the property

Some years since a poor but talented gen- 
tleman of the medical profession conceived the 
idea that if he could produce a medicine of 
universal application and extraordinary merit 
and make It known he eould not only enrich 
himself and escape the drudgery of a Physi- 

I cian's Ufa. but also benefit the sick in a great- 
er measure than by hi* private practice. He 
therefore eoi salted with the best Fbyjieians he 

: coold find, and the result was the production 
of the Judson's Mountain l.erb Pills, a fa- 
mous and most successful medicine. He be- 
gan in every small way to make the Moun- 
tain Herb Pil's, known by advartisiag them 
and sneh was the value of his Pills that in a 

': few years he bad not only emassed a fortune; 
but had that rare satisfaction for a rich man 
of having relieved tbe sick, and ben eS ted his 
fellow Ben io every part of the country, as 
thousands of greatful testimonials can ;reve. 
The Jodson's MounUin Herb Pills have cured 

' Dyspepsia, Liver Complaiat, Female Irregu- 
larities, and alt billions disorders. This little 
sketolvservee both to adorn a tale and point a 
moral. Dr. Jud^on's Pills wore menrorious 
and tbe doctor himself k new tbe value of prin- 

, t«i*t itik. S«la l.y all Dralers. SS.'^wS

MR. NASBY AND HIS C0XFRBRE8 ATTEMPT 
TO GET POSSESSION OF THE NEGRO VOTE 
IN THE SIXTH WARD, NEW YORK— HOW 
THEY WENT ABOUT IT— THE DIFFICUL- 
TY IN THE WAY AND THE RE3ULT. 

Harp ut K«in S'looh, | 

Is THB Sixth Wabo, Noo Yo&s, > 

April 1-J, 187a ) 

The Noo York World, in a recent iahoo, 
remarkt that the Nigger vote must come 
to us, becoz the Dimocrisy hed alluz bed 
success la manasia the ignerant and do 
gradid classes. This determined us to set 
about sekoorin the vote uv the nigger 
populashen in our ward immejitly. Father 
McGrath insisted that it be done t > wunst, 
becoz the minit they become Ditnocrats 
the way wuz paved for their comin under 
the speritooal direckshen uv the Catholic 
Church; Timmy McGee insisted that it 
shood be done becoz the element, ef op- 
posed to us, mite become dangerous; 
Timmy O'Hyan becoz we had either to in 
corporate em into our ranks or kill em, 
and ht didn't beleeve it wood pay to raise 
another riot jist now; and I wantid em 
attached to our party becoz I wantid cm 
in front uv my bar reglerly. 

We decided that the shortest way to git 
at em wood be to git one nigger interest- 
id with us, who wood serve ez a decoy 
duck to bring in the others. We wantid 
a nigger to assoshate with; to embrace 
and sich ; to show other niggers that we 
cood and wood aflilyate with tm. Wc hed 
a terrible time a gittin uv it starlid, how- 
ever. We got one uv that racem my back 
room, and attemptid to argoo the questions 
uv the hour with him, confident in our 
ability to crush him by tacts int > submishcn 
to our doctrins, but tbe mizable devil 
pulled out uv his pocket a copy uv the 
Constex>shn and askt Teddy the Lifter to 
read and constroo a sentence therein, 
which finisht that pertikler etTort. Teddy, 
and Patsy O'llourke and Micky Doolau 
who held him in hand, startid back at the 
site uv that book ez tho they hed been 
shot. The CUS9 co(xl r«nl, and wat ood 
any uv em do with sieh a man ? 

We caught a sick nigger and hed him 
in tow three days. We nussed him, and 
fed him, and hed in a doctor for him, wich 
doctor give him medicine and Dimocrisy 
in ekal df)ses, all uv •\vich he seeminly 
gulpetl down with ease. We got him on 
the skore of gratitooti, and he went away, 
promisin that he wood jine us, but tlie 
second day he came back and laid down 
on the bar twenty dollars with the remark 
that that sum wood pay lor all the cost 
and trouble we hed been to on his account. 
•' Wat do yoo mean v" said I, sternly, 
sweepin the money into the drawer, how- 
ever, to make sure" uv that. 

Bustin into a paroxysm uv teer^, he re- 
markt that ez low and mean k nigger ez 
he wuz he coodent reely jine us. It wuz 
unfair in us, he sed, to take advantage uv 
his illness to put him under obligashens 
to us. 

" I can't be a Dimokrat," he sobbed, 
claspin his hands piteously. " I can't, 
reely. I hev a gray-haired mother livin, 
and a younger sister .' I c.tn't ! I can't : 
for I'm 'spectably connected !" 

And he rushed out. It was forchnit for 
him that I wuz alone at the time. 

All our efforts to sekoor a Etiiioplan to 
our standard seemed to come to naught, 
and we wuz just on the confines uv des- 
pair, when oncmornin Johnny O'Shough- 
nessy come rushin in exclaimin, " I've got 
it— I've got it!" 
" Got wat r I askt. 

" The nigger we want. In the Poleece 
Court there's a nigger up for drukenness, 
vagrancy, steelin, assault and battery, and 
some other thingi, and ez he heznt a blast- 
ed cent, uv course he'll be sent up in short 
metre. We kin git him shoor, ef we go 
about it cjuickly. I got the Judge to hold 
on a bit till I cood see you." 

To wunst I seed a lite. Rushing franti- 
cally down to the court- room, I gave my- 
self as bail for his appearance, wich the 
Judge, who is a politikle friend of mine, 
acceptid, without ((uestion, and seezin the 
nigger by the coat collar, I hustled him 
ori to my place in triumph. Tim Dolan 
spoke up. 

" Will yoo," sez Tim, " ef we get yoor 
discharge promise to alluz vole the 
Dim— " 

" Hold ! " sez J quickly, for I wuz afeerd 
Tim's thoughtless precipitancy mite rooin 
all, " hold : He aint in condishen to hev 
that question put to him. Wait a minnit : 
I understand wats required to make a con- 
vert better than yoo do." 

And seizin a bottle from behind the bar 
I put it to his lips. The nigger drank with 
a eagernis wich gave me hope. Teddy 
spoke up agin — 

" Will you promise to alluz vote " 

"Hold!" said I. *' He haint enough. 
Drink." • 
And the nigger emptied the bottle. 
•' Now," sed 1 " are yoo willin to promise 
to allu4 vote the Dimocratic tickit— to 
labor with your colored brethren to bring 
em into the fold uv the Dimocri-sy, and to 
do your level best to promote the interests 
uv the Dimocratic party now and for- 
ever !" 

The nigger, by this time crazy drunk, 
(the likker wuz from my own private 
bottle and unwatered,) swore that he 
would promise all this. " Gib me some 
mo' dat whisky," he ihricked. 

I gave him another bottle and in fifteen 
minlts he wuz sleepin the deep sleep wich 
the tite man only knows. 

In about four hours he awoke, and I 
thought it time to approach him on the 
main question. 

"Geezer," I remarkt, "you must com- 
mence yoor work to nite. We shel git up 
a meetin uv colored men at thii place for 
the purpose uv organizin a Colored Dem- 
ocratic Club, and you must address em." 
"Must 1 indooseemto jine a Dimocratic 
Club?" he asked. 
"Certinly." 

" Did I promise to do it?" 
"Certinly," I replied, "and my buck 
you'd better keep that promise or I'll hev 
yoo back in the dock at the Poleece Court 

in a jiffy." 

"Ill do it," sed he with the desperate 
air uv one who hed determined that life 
ain't worth livin for and iz prepared for 
anything. I'll do it, but I must hev likker 

enuff to drown my con which is to 

say, give me nerve." 

"Certinly," I replied, "all the likker 
yoo want, but speck yoo mu=t." 

The nite anne and there wuz a decent 
show uv niggers in th^; back room. But 
the speeker I alas ! he wuz too far gone 
to speek and I hed to dismiss em. 

The next morning he swore he never 
wood do it, and to git him to the pint uv

The FlfteeHth Amendment. 



Rev. W. H Daniels, of the First 
Methodist Episcopal Church of Chicago, 
on the 17th of April preached a sermon 
on the Fifteenth Amendment, from which 
we take the following extracts: 

In the year 1620 the first negro slaves 
were brought to this country by a Dutch 
ship-of-war, and landed in Virginia; in 
this year, 1870, the last restrictions of the 
righti of the negro as a citizen are re- 
moved, and he stands forth a free man 
and a v>)ter. 

In order that we may better realize this 
mighty work which God has wrought for 
the negro race, we shall do well to note 
tho leading parts of their history. The 
poet Virgil tells us of a poor fellow, who, 
having offended some of the gods, was 
placed in a prison under the earth, and a 
mountain piled on tip of him to keep him 
down. But the negro has had a whole 
range of mountains to keep him down. 
First, his own ignorance. lie had his 
hon.e in the darkest corner of the 
earth, and so dense was his stupidity that 
he would have starved to death for want 
of knowing how to make his living if 
nature had not been prodigal of her gifts 
in that sultry land. When the people 
were wanted for slaves they were hunted 
in the jungle like wtdves, herded in the 
slave-pen like cattle, packed in the slave- 
ship like herrings in a barrel, and then 
sold liKe donkeys, to cultivate the fields 
of American planters. They c^uld not 
help learning something in their new life, 
and kst they should be able to escape from 
their prison the courts of legislation were 
set to work piling on laws to make the 
mountain higher and heavier, laws which 
forbade them the school, the spelling book, 
and the Bible. 

Second, There was the mountain of 
poverty ; a mountain exceeding great and 
heavy, as those who have lain uader it 
know too well. It is a terrible thing to 
have no money, no properly and no credit, 
but the poverty of the negro was more. 
He did not even own himself; his eyes 
were not his own ; his hands with which 
he toiled were the property of another 
man, and so were his wite and his chil- 
dren. This mountain, too, grew in height 
with the growing sense of misery which 
the black man endured as he saw other 
households grow rich by his toil, and other 
men grow proud because he Siived thera 
from soiling their hands with work. And 
it is no wonder that he writhed and 
groaned under this mountain, as the fabled 
prisoner did under his mountain. But 
there were no earthquakes in consequence. 
The third mountain was his color and 
the pride of race on the part of his op- 
pressors. We arc all of us to blame, I 
fear, in this respect. We h.ave helped to 
pile up this mountain ; we po.ssess some 
of the old spirit of caste — at least I am 
ashamed to confess I do, though I hope 
God may use the Fifteenth Amend. nent 
as a means of grace to me and my people, 
that we may willingly believe God '.' hath 
made of one blood all nations of men for 
to dwell on all the face of the earth." — 
Acts xvii, 2G. 

Thp fourth mountain was the Demo- 
cratic party. The men at the North and 
at the South, who held the slaves and 
governed the nation, put this doctrine 
into their po'itical creeds that slavery was 
right; that it was a divine institution. 
We all know how tenaciously a man holds 
to his religion, especially if his religion 
helps his prejudice and his profits, and 
this doctrine being preached from one-end 
of the laud to the other, the mountain 
grew exceeding great and high. 

But " God hath delivered him ; " hath 
tumbled the mountains oil him and lifted 
the poor fellow up, and now he stands up- 
right, a man and a voter, a citizen of tlve 
greatest nation of the world. "This is the 
Lord's doings, and it is marvelous in our 
eyes." 

We had a strange procession in Chicago 
the other day— a procession the like of 
which ten years ago we hardly hoped to 
see in our day, a procession the like of 
which no man in this land will ever see 
again, for, thank God, there is no other 
race of slaves to be set free —it was the 
negro race celebrating the Fifteenth 
Amendment. 

I do not know who planned that pro- 
cession, but it was a work of genius, a 
poem lull of tears and laughter, of mem- 
ories of horror and omens of glory. Many 
an Old-Line Abolitionist felt his hair ris- 
ing and blood tingling, and wanted to 
shout, and did shout, as that line of dark 
fiice.s, men, and women, and children, 
with many of the marks of their poverty, 
as well as of their joy, abcmt them, wound 
its quiet way through our streets. He 
had sometimes hoped that his grandsons, 
or perhaps his sons might live to set it, 
but he expected to be looking down from 
Heaven when the notes of its music 
should be heard. But there it was, right 
before his eyes, a nation come to life, and, 
what is more, come to liberty ! 

It was a good day, my brethren, a day 
for songs and rejoicing, and if it was a joy 
to us, what think you, was it to them? 
The good time coming, and so bitterly 
long in coming, had burst upon them, and 
they did well to celebrj^te with music and 
banners ; to turn out en max.^e, old and 
young,- rich and j^oor, in coaches and on 
horseback, in carls and wagons, with bells 
ringing and the old flag flying, and yet 
with a strange silence of voices as if they 
were too happy to sing, or as if their new 
honors were a dream which a shout might 
frighten away. 

That procession was historic and it was 
prophetic. 

First in order came a platoon of police 
— signifying law — government. It was 
right that law should walk at the head of 
their procession, for law had made slaves 
of them, and government had helped to 
hold them in bondage. Yet these people 
always respected law : they have not 
been rebellious. John Brown raised a 
little insurrection, but. as a mutiny, it was 
a failure. They waited patiently for law 
to deliver them, and for government to 
adopt them, and it would have been well 
if the man who gave the famous Dred 
Scott decision could have had a place 
among the policemen. Law once crush- 
ed this people ; now it lifts them ; they 
have obeyed law while it was poverty 
and bonds to obey. How gladly will they 
obey it when it commands them to be 
prosperous and free. 

The procession was In part composed 
of various representatives of the trades. 
Toil has been one of the rights of the 
black man ; and it has been claimed as 
one of the rights of the white men to 
drive him to toil. 

Laziness i.s the great crime of slaves in 
the eyes of their masters ; but who could 
work with much vigor, when work 
brought no wages! And is laziness a 
crime only in biack men? Are the loaf- 
ers with white faces at the South and 
North to go unblamed ? 

But from this time a new motive will enter 
into the I'fo of these sons of toll, viz.: the 
right to enjoy to the fullest extent the 
fruit of their labor, and. if the half ot this 
nation was made rich by their labor as 
slaves, what grand results may come from 
their labor as freemen ? 

There was one significant emblem in 
that procession, which is worth a passing 
notice ; a man wth his whole family 
crowded into a little wagon, drawn by a 
wretched h^rsc, being, perhaps, unable to 
buy aa artistic banner to represent the 
implements of his trade, bore al<~>ft the 
implement itself— a whitewash brush. 

Ah ! my m:in, there is ;i gn^t deal of 
whit^w.ish'ng to be douc in the archives 
of this nation ; a great many black letters 
to be effaced. Utters which have written 
the great disgrace of this Governmt^nt by 
writing the rt cords of the slavery of your 
pei>ple. 



m 



tent than lime and water to wipe out the 
crimes of the strong against the weak 
which have been committed in this land ; 
they have entered into history ; they are 
cut into the walls of our national temple, 
and never so much whitewashing will 
hide them. So let us have no whited se- 
pulchres, but rather a new life in our na- 
tion, a life which shall help us to count 
the right of all men sacred, a life which 
shall regenerate our politics and .cause us 
to insist forever on liberty for all men. So 
the world may forget the darkness of our 
past by reason of the g'orv tha'^ is dawn 
ing on our future. Wo shall do weU to 
remember the doctrine of that old pa' riot, 
"He only loves liberty who wishes all 
men to be free." 

There was the colored secret societies, 
too, in the line, and I thought of the won- 
derful secret brotherhood among the 
slaves, by means of which they helped 
one another to bear the horrors of their 
servitude. Any important fact, any new 
danger to one of their race coming to the 
ever-listening ears of his people, was told 
to hiiE though he were leagues away, and 
through all the nights of those dark years 
that weird system of communication was 
kept up all over the Southern States, so 
that without telegraphs or printing 
presses, or even an alphabet, these poor 
slaves talked together across counties and 
States, sharing ' in each other's sorrows 
and cheering each other's souls. 

And when the war broke out it was 
often the black men who had the f\ille8t 
and earliest information. A slave would 
carry the news of " Massa Linkum's vic- 
tories" a long way in a night ; he had 
learned to run with heavy tidings, but he 
cauld almost fly when he had such good 
news to tell. 

Another noticeable thing about the pro- 
cession was the prominence given in it 
to the Union. There were veteran sol- 
diers who fought for the Union, there was 
the pageant of dusky maidens, one for 
each State of the Union, there were 
" Brothers of Union," with their banners, 
and a long line of carriages full of "Daugh- 
ters of Union," and the flag of the Union 
was everywhere in the procession, as was 
doubtless an honest and sincere love for 
the Union. 

The politics of these people are not 
doubtful ; they believe in liberty and 
union ; they made a glorious record to 
this effect during the war, and who shall 
say they do not now de^serve a place 
among the citizens of the Union ? 

They were our allies everywhere, and 
our friends always. A poor fugitive from 
Andersonville, skulking along at night, 
would stop and hide, at the sound of ap 
proaching footsteps, until convinced that 
the stranger was of the same color as tbe 
night, and then he would come out and 
ass his way. " A negro" was to our boys 
synonymous with "a friend," and now 
that the war is over, let us not be ashamed 
to own our friends, to stand by them in 
their new relations, and instruct them in 
their new duties. They have had a train- 
ing for citizenship which is unequalled ; 
they have been taught by torture and 
tears what it is to be a slave ; and they 
know, as we never can know, what it is to 
be free ; and for this reason they are to be 
relied upon in the use of the ballot in 
time of peace, or of the rifle in time of 
war. Liberty reinf >rce8 itself by making 
citizens of the black race, for by ins'inct 
born of sorrow they will be true to lib- 
erty. 

And no5V I think with shame of the 
record of some of our own cjlor, as com- 
pared with that of the negro, in the war. 
There are men among us who were trai- 
tors then ; whose hearts were with our 
enemies in our struggle for life; who did 
not thank God f)r Union vic'ories, or 
work and pray for our armies when they 
suflered defeat. Yes, white men at the 
North have made such a shameful record 
for themselves, and yet these men and 
some of their ill mannered sons, had the 
eflrontery to laugh at that procession, and 
scoff at the new citizens of the nation. 

There was a Sunday School in that pro- 
cession. Now a Sunday School signifies 
two things,— religion and education. 

The most of us have obtained our re- 
ligion by means of education, but the 
black race in this country have been re- 
ligious without education. Their faith, 
so simple and undying, in spite of genera- 
tions of waiting for answers to their 
prayers, seems to have been a special in- 
spiration of the Spirit of God ; and their 
faith has saved them. Their religion was 
wild and full of superstition, but it was 
hearty, and founded upon a few simple 
truths which they had learned while 
some white men read the Bible in their 
hearing. 

The grace of patience they possessed to 
a great degree, and for a spirit of forgive- 
ness under injury, there is nothing in 
these days that equals theirs. They have 
for centuries prayed for those who perse- 
cuted them ; when smitten on the cheek 
they have turned the other also, crimes 
have been committed against them habit- 
ually and continually which a white man 
feels justified in avenging by murder, and 
yet they have endured and waited, always 
sustained by a great trust that Jesus would 
send them deliverance. If this were a re- 
vengeful people, what horrors would haunt 
the dreams of those enemies of this race 
by whom they have been so long out- 
raged ? They have an occasion for ven- 
geance that might well make their former 
masters tremble ; but no one fears them 
unless it be a certain class of politicians 
who are anxious about the effect of the 
negro vote upon their prospects for ofllce. 
They are peaceable, because they are 
Christians— very ignorant Christians, it 
is true— but tried in the furnace and not 
found wanting. 

And there were the bells ringing out 
their joy at the new era. The negro has 
alwa>s been a jolly, happy fellow in spite 
of his miseries. A special dispensauon 
of joy and buoyancy «f spirit seems by a 
merciful Providence to have been given 
him, and but for this he must have per- 
ished under the weight of his woes. Hith- 
erto, in this nation, bells have rung foj 
everybody but him — now he has a chime 
of his own. The nation hears it, and good 
men rejoice in the sound ; the world hears 
il.and Christendom echoes back the notes 
in songs and praises to God for Ills new 
go.'pel of liberty; heaven hears it— the 
heiven where so many of their sable 
brethren f jund the free land ; the heaven 
where so many of our sons and brothers 
went, when they laid down their lives 
flghting God's battles ; the heaven where 
every eye brightens, and every voice has 
a song of joy at the news of Goal's great 
work for his other Israel, a race delivered 
from slavery, " a nation bora at once." 

And now at last, at the end of this 
strange line, comes old Father Nico- 
demus, or one verj- like him, who seems 
to have been waked from the gum-tree, 
according to the song, and to have come 
forth to assist in the great jubilee. 

A resurrection indeed— a new birth is 
here. Let us rejoice before the Lord to- 
day ; and from this grand deliverance of 
His people, let us take new c mrage that 
the time shall come when all nations shall 
find the new life, the liberty of the Gos- 
pel, and all the ends of the earth shall sec 
the salvation of our God. 

In my judgment, we have occasion to 
offer devout thanksgiving to the Lord of 
Hosts for the event which our negro citi- 
zens have so recently celebrated. He 
knows how U) cattx on the world better 
than we, and this' providence of His is 
no less divine and less glorious than the 
bringing e^f Israel out of Egypt, which 
we read so reverently in our Bihks. Let 
us. then, rejoice with our colored brethren, 
and be exceeding glad ; and while wc sec 
this new race marching under the cohiums 
of our temple of liberty, let us stand by 



gire them schools, and lands, and church- 
es, and trained teachers, and ministers of 
religion, that they may become intelligent 
and prosperous amo:ig us. Long time 
have they waited for i.he Lord ; at length 
He has come to save them. They do well 
to rejoice, for in God's good providence 
the days of their mourning are ended, and 
the occasion of their joy is a pledge of 
Jehova to us all that iniquity shall not go 
unpunished, but that those who trust in 
the Lord shall never be confounded.

A Cough, Cold, or Sore Throat, re- 
quires immediate attention, as neglect 
oftentimes results in some incurable Lung 
Disease. ^^ Brown's Bronchial Trocfies 
are a simple remedy, and will almost in- 
variably give immediate relief. 

Owing to the good reputation and pop- 
ularity of the Troches, many wortJdess and 
cheap imitations are offered, which are good 
for nothing. Be sure to obtain the trii4 
" Brown's Bronchial Troches." Sold every- 
where.

In ntimbers there is safety. It was upon this 
principle that the formula of Jcdson's MotrNTAra 
Herb Pills was uroj/ared. Dr. Judson, in- 
tending to Fpend a fortune in advertising his pills, 
submitted his recipe to the revision or the most 
intelligent and learned physicians of the age, and 
the result is a Bimple but most efficacious medicine 
—the Judson'b Mountain Hkbb Pillb. They 
pnriiV tbe blood, remove all obstructions, cleanse 
the skin of all pimples and blotches, and are per- 
fectly snre and safe iu their operation. The Jud- 
BOT^'s Motn^TAiN Herb Pills cure Bilionsness, 
Female irregularitius. Headache and many of the 
diseases arisine from impure blood and a deranged 
digestion. Use the Jltjbon's Mountain Herb 
PiLi>9, and when yon have proved their virtue 
recommend them to yonr friends. They are l)Otb 
sugar-coated and plain. For sale everywhere.

Newspaper Statements. 

HOW TBI PBOPLE TMT THUB TBTTTH. 

This is not an age when people believe on trust 
whatever they see in the public journals. Fifty 
or sixty years ago when the accuracy of a state- 
ment that had appeared in one of the gazettes or 
"News Letters'^ of the day, was questioned, It 
was considered a sufflcieat answer to all cavil to 
say, " It must be so, for I read it in the newspa- 
per." It is not so now. Newspaper assertions 
must be verifled before they are taken for grant- 
ed, and this is especially tbe case as regards state- 
mcntJ' setting forth the remedial properties of 
proprietary medicines. For example : it was not 
until the tonic and alterative properties of Hoe- 
tetter's Stomach Bitters had been deliberately 
and thoroughly tested by thousands, and found to 
be in perfect accord with the printed.claims put 
forth in its, behalf, that it was accepted by the 
public at laree as a Star.dard Remedy. But when 
multitudes who had resorted to it as a safeguard 
against malarious fevers, a cure for indigestion 
and biliousness, a means of streaetbening the 
frame, cheering the spirits and imparting constltu- 
tional vigor, came forward and testified that it« 
beneficial effects had exceeded their most san- 
guine expectations, of course the world believed 
To resist such proofs' wab impossible." Great care 
has been taken from the beginning not to oversme 
the merit? of the Bitters. Exaggeration and bom- 
bast have been the death of many preparations 
that might otherwise have survived. They were 
"weighed in the balance and found wanting. 
Hostetter's Bitters, on the contrary, have never 
been announced in grandiloquent language as a 
cure for every bodily ill, but simply as a pure 
harmle?" vegetable specific, possessing remarka- 
ble in\igorating, regniating, anti-bilious and an 
tiseptic properties. This is exactly what the pub- 
lic know the medicine to be, and Its enormous 
sales is an argument in its faver.

Boston, Mab*., Febmuj 18, isn. 

HxasBB. P. Davis & Son- Gentlemen : The package 
of Allen's Lung Balsam yon sect mo to use amoiiR the 
afflicted poor In my city missionary work has proved 
very acceptable and useful. It has eone Into sever»il 
lamllles, and with remarkable eflect In every instance. 

One woman has been restored from what her physi- 
cians pronounced consumption, after several months' 
sickness with conRti, great pain in the lunjrs, and pros- 
tration, BO that she Is able now to do housework and 
assist In the support of her family, aad with care and 
continued use oi the Balsam she expects entire rt:stor- 
atlon. 

Another person, a young woman to whom I gave one 
l)Ottle, has received great l)enefit, so that her cough, 
which was of months' Btantlliig, Is tjettinp bettor, anu 
she has purchased th'.; second bottle, and has every 
indication of a speedy cure. 

A young man who was raising blood, and quite weak 
and sick, has, by the use of two twttles, t)een much 
Improved, and is able to do a little at his work. 

A younfc man to wliom I recommended atrial of It, 
who has had a bad cou^h, and much pain in his lungs 
for montiiB past, ana unable to pet rest ot Rleep, has 
commenced takin? It, and Is now using the fourth 
bottle wltU preat benefit. He said to me on a recent 
visit, he would not do without It. He Is hoping (and 
reasonably it seems to me) to be able to resume his 
work af ain. 

Very respectfuDy and gratefully yours.

"Whkue Massachusetts Bay sweeps to- 
wards the Cape, entrenched in green hills 
and goMen eaiids, sleeps the good old town 
of riymuuth, memorable, as all the world 
know3, for being the landing place of the 
F4ngli9h Puritans monj than two centuries 
ago. 

All tbi«, he\ag a matter of history, we 
pHss liy, ;,cd introduci', without further 
preap;.olo, the Anderson family. I liavc 
Vxtit seen the <rcnealo£?ic:il records of the 
Andersons, aad am not f ure of their legit-

Be that as it ma}', tliey inherited their 
stern virtue and uprightness of life, 
whether it Ciime hy blood, or ])y the more 
8 d)tk' "nlluerr ; which permeated the at- 
mosphere where they live4 and died so 
nobly and purely. 

iJenJHniin Andt-rson owned a farm of 
pome si-^cty acres — very prolific in thistles, 
Bwe(t-*"eni and pitch-pine?. "By the

Th*' ^'•^ bt friended him in many way?. 
It drove a^-ay ihe tro.«ts that looked envi- 
ously on his >inrif>ened fields: it washed 
l(tvi.'^h quantities of ktlp from its grey 
T< ck<? to enrich the soil, and furnished his 
tabic with an abundance of dainty fishes. 
Tt was, iK'slde, a continual inspiration. 
Itoliing in from far away misty skies, in- 
finite and. illimitable as the thought of 
heaven. Vt sung forever of action, and pro- 
gress, and victory. 

The farm house, facing toward the sea. 
Whs barkttil by a long, low, undulating 
hill, and this again by another, more al)- 
rupt and pronounced, den.sely set with 
great sprea'Jing pines, looking like 
a vast emerald f)oulder thrown up 
ftErainstthepale sapi>hireof the skies. Be- 
low were little rills of green valleys ; roads 
cleaming like pale gold in the sun; a shal- 
Kiw rush-bordered brook, brightened 
by scarlet cardinals, and perfumed with 
nieadowed mint ; and beyond all, the glare 
and flash sparkle of the sea. 

Tt was a lovely place— this pleasant little 
farm in the south of Plymouth ; had it not 
been, the Andersons would havelons: since 
listened to the advice of Tom Arnold, Mrs. 
Anderson's brother, and sold it. Tom 
>iiuf been in the West a dozen years or 
more. lie hid grown rich there, and so 
WHS enthusiastic about the country. It is 
often the c,i.«e that Eastern people who do 
7i»t crow rich in the West, are not partic- 
nlurly enthusiastic about it ! 

lien Anderson had long since given up 
the thou^rht of being a rich man, if he had 
ever cherished it, as he probably had at 
p<iiue time in his life, as nearly every one 
does. He ha<l grown to be content with 
what he had, and only now and then a 
letter from ''brotiier Tom," broke up the 
r;ilm of his spirit. As long as Myra was 
fmtent he did not care. But " Myra" was 
rot exactly content, though he did not 
know it. Tom's glowing description.* had 
fallen into her heart like a spark of flre, 
which, as yet, only smouldered in dark- 
res-iand silence. She had a woman's love 
lor pretty .surroundings. The bare white 
iloor, which she scoured thrice a week, 
was not quite satisfactory, notwithstand- 
ing its spotless whiteness. She had a 
Very feminine weakness for soft carpets 
and "stutFod" furniture, and as Tom 
wrote her about his, how elegant they 
were, and how much he gave for them, 
and so forth, her own half dozen "cane 
seats," and her carpet manufactured by 
her own hands from strips of cloth sewn 
together and woven into a heterogeneous 
melange of all conceivable colors, grew 
more and more unsiatisfactory to her. 
She had a vague idea that " the West " 
wixt a sort of Aladdin's Lamp, that trans- 
muted poor people into rich ones without 
the slichtesl ceremony. 

There was another thing that influenced 
her. H.ilph was m(«t ifleen, and he was 
an only child— so much hope centres In 
these only children. R\lph reminded her 
of her brother Tom a dozen times a day 
— fiery, daring, ambitious, chafing against 
the narrowness and poverty that helgcd 
him in, as Tom had done. Tom had gone 
West. Balph declared ?iii* intention of go 
in? t'^ sea. 77<w was what fiUetl Myra An- 
derson's heart with fear and dread. Years 
i»T\ when she was little more than a child, 
lier father's vessel was driven ashore <*n 
Manomet rocks, and captain, mate and 
crew, sixteen in all. were swallowed up in 
the boiling surf. Long years of calm and 
quiet iiad slipped between, but through 
them all she saw forever aru- face, the se?- 
w< 4 tangled in the dripping hair, and 
about the neck where lier arms had 
twined so often and so fondly. If only 
they were West, Balph would' forget his 
passion for the sea, she said, sitting with 
Tom's last letter in her hand, dreaming 
some very bright dreams for her boy. 

"Mother!' rang out sharp and clear, 
startling her from her pleasant reverie. 

She put the letter hastily into her rtre.ss 
and came out into the little porch 1 A 
d«H">r came to with a sharp clang, and for 
the first time she noticed that it was very 
dark, and the wind was blowing in little 
sudden gusts that threatened to become a 
gale. 

" I'm going up to the hill, mother— isn't 
it splendid"?' Rivlph asked excitedly, his 
blue eyes darkening and dilating. 

** To the hill ! Why it rains now, and 
■ce how black it is, and— O", mercy !" This 
exclamation was caused by the wind 
liftine a barrel that stood at the corner of 
the house, and dashing it against the door 
with insane fury.

asked petulantly. " I saw in a newspaper 
the other day an account of a man choked 
to death by eating a piece of meat— do 
you suppose his descendants will all for- 
swear meat? Pshaw! I am going up to 
the hill ; I want to see if there are any 
sails in sight. I shall not get shipwrecked 
up there.'' he added dryly, as he drew on 
an old oil jacket of his father's. 
" You are just like Tom—" 
" Yes, so I have heard," he interrupted. 
"I suppose you wish I was like Rob 
Thatcher. He is a nice specimen— he is." 
"Ralph, Robert wasn't to blame if 
Lulu was drowned. You do wrongly to 
speak so," she replied gravely, but with a 
little secret thrill of pride at her boy's 
fearless spirit. 

" Wa.sn't to blame ! Well, if / had a sis- 
ter, and the boat upset that we were in, 
do you think I'd rvm home and wrap my 
face up in my mother's gown and cry, 
while she drowned ? Thai's what he did, 
evervbody knows, and / say he is a mis- 
erable coward !" he cried, with flashing 
eyes. " I only wish I had been there — 
siich a pretty little thine as she was! 
It's a pitv it wasn't him— the great baby !" 
and he flung himself out of the room too 
indi"'naut to make more talk about the 
matter. 

lijewind increased momently, and the 
spray fnm the incoming waves hung like 
a veil along the long reach of dripping 
sands. A hollow, hungry roar came up 
and crept away behin<i the hills in shud- 
derini,' echoes. A limb from the great 
poplar in the j:iid fi 11 ag.dnst ^he win- 
dows with a crash just as Ben Anderson 
drove up to the barn door. 

"It's the hardett storm we have had 
these ten years— a regular old- fashioned 
line gale,'"' he said, c-ming into the 
kitchen where his wife was trying to 
coax the fire up chimney instead of its 
eominsr into the room, as it had for the 
last half hour. ^ , 

"I am so glad you have got home. 



" Y^ou don't think she is ashore here, do 
you, father?" Ralph asked hastily. 

" I hope she is not ashore anywhere, but 
I didn't like the sudden way those minute 
guns stopped. If they can only keep her 
off an hour longer, till the tide turns 
These fierce gales don't generally last 
long, fortunately-" 

"Can /go, father?" 

Mr. Anderson hesitated, and glanced at 
his wife. She was white as death, and 
once or twice the plates she was renioviag 
from the table slipped from her nervous 
hand. 

"No, my boy; you could do no good if 
you went, and it's not likely there is any- 
thing to do, Slav with your mother till I 
come back ; I shall only take a look along 
the shore;" and he shut the door and went 
out. Ridph and his mother watching the 
fitful gleam of the lantern till a turn m the 
path hill it from sight. 

Mrs Anderson finished clearing the bi- 
ble, filled the tea kettle and put it on the 



"Myra! are you crazy?" he cried, 
holding her white, stony lace toward the 
light Bradlee brought ip. 

" O, Ben ! and you are not dead ? she 
gasped, with a long, slivering sob. 

"Dead! Wh4t put. that into your 
brain ?" he. asked, with surorise. 

" You were gone so long ! and then all 
those men— what are they here for ?" she 
said slowly, as if just waking from a 
dream. 

He drew her a little closer in his arms 
and turned her face, toward the sea. 
About half a mile from the shore a ship 
lay ou her side, the waves washing over 
her, and tossing their foaming spray high 
above the broken masLs and tattered sails. 

" We have been trying to save them, 
but it was too late ; tliey were probably 
exhausted and sank w ithout a struggle- 
poor fellows!" he said, gravely. 

" O, that wreck— why, I had forgotten!" 
she said, shivering and turning away from 
the ghwmy picture, ^^hich was however,

hand on his arm. 

He saw how white she was. and 
ticed the hand on his arm trembled. 

"What, nervous, little woman?" 
asked, smiling. 

" 1 was b« afraid the trees would blow 
over and frighten the horse when you 
came through the woods," she replied, 
with a little iiystericalsob. " And the sea 
—just hear it !" 

" Ue is in the storm as well as in the 
calm, Myra," he said gravely. But see^ 
ing how nervous she was he did not tell 
her how near her tears had come to the 
truth. A great pine, standing close to the 
road, had gone over as he came by, just 
clearing his head, and grazing the back of 
the wagon. One instant later and it 
would have crushed him to death, and 
Myra would have waited in vain for his 

coming ! . , , , • 

" Where is Ralph ?" he asked, looking 
round, a sudden fear that he had gone 
down the harbor overtaking him. 

" I never saw such a boy— unless it was 
brother Tom. Why, he is rigged up in 
vour old jacket, up on the hill; he would 
go. He thinks this is ' splendid'- tins 
terrible storm— and wishes he was out- 
side !" she added, with a shudder. ^^ 

" Heaven help those who are outside, 
Mr. Anderson replied, soberly. 

" Do you think there are any vessels on 
the coast ?" sh« asked, anxiously. 

"They had been looking oft" with their 
glasses from Cole's Hill for an hour or 
two when I left town. There was a large 
ship just discernible in the distance. The 
spray was so thick 'twas next to impossi- 
ble to make her out. I hope she 
managed to keep out to sea ; with this 
wind driving her, if she became unman- 
ageable from any cause, it would be] a 
hard look." 

" Father! there's a sail outside, and it's 
driving in toward the point," Ralph cried 
excitedly, opening the door, which sent a 
sudden sheet of flame and smoke halfway 
across the room. 

" Come in, Ralph," Mr. Anderson com- 
manded. 

" But I want to go down to the beach, 
father. I"— 

" Come in, I sav," he repeated sternly. 
Ralph shut the door and came slowly 
through the porch into the kitchen. It 
would not do to disregard his commands, 
he had learned that thoroughly. His 
mother he could " bluft" ofiV as he called 
it, but he never tried it with his father 
" You could not stand on the beach 
instant in this gale, Ralph, and the spray 
drives clear up to the windows— see !" 
Antl as he spoke it grew suddenly dark, 
and the wind whirled the rain and spray, 
and great handfuls of green leaves which 
it had stripped from the trees, against the 
ghuss. almost shutting out what little was 
left of the rapidly waning light 

Ralph sat down by the window in si- 
lence, while his mother set the table for 
supper. Outside the storm and the dark- 
ness increased till the long line of beach 
grew ghastly and indistinct, and fitful 
shadows crept shivering through the rank 
March grasses, like lost spirits searching 
for rest. Sudienly the dull boom of a 
gun broke with a slow, sullen crash 
through the pauses of the storm. 

Ralph sprang to his feet, and followed 
his father to the door. The wind caught 
it from them, and lifted it from its hinges 
in an instant. Mr. Anders<in drew to the 
inside door as quickly as possible, but not 
before the liirht had flared and goue out, 
leaving them in a shadowy sort of dark- 
ness, that was full of a dim, brooding 
doom. Mrs. Anderson crept to the win- 
dow, and listened with her ear against the 
pane. Outside, on the broad stone step, 
Ben Anderson, with Ralph by his side, 
listened to the crash, crash of the minute 
guns that came up through the territde 
rumble and roar. so«ietimes with startling 
distinctness, and anon caught up by the 
fierce wind, and tossed to and fro till it fell 
back into the sta, and was lost in its hoarse 
diapason. The guns suddenly ceased, and 
the black sky lowered darkly over the 
moaning sea, and though they waited and 
listened, no sound save the shock of 
waves and shriek of winds came up again 
from the stormy east -• 

The lamp was re-lighted, and the family 
sat down to supper with white, grave 
faces. The sim]>le "grace" which Ben. 
Andcrstm never omitted, had in it a word 
of earnest supplication that *' He who 
holdeth the waves in the hollow of His 
hand, would keep those of His children 
throuch this hour of terrible peril who 
were cast upon their mercy, and if it was 
His will, brinsthem all safely to land." 

There was a little pretence of eating, but 
none of them ate more than three or four 
mouthfuls, and with common consent 
they ro.se from the table. 

"Have the tea kettle full of hot water, 
Mvra, and perhaps y<m had better bring 
out the blankets, too." said Mr. Anderson, 
takinir down his lantern. "I am going 
down to the beach, and though I think the 
ship has gone south of us, it won't do any 
harm to have things ready." 




"jrST LOOK O' THERE, I SAY, NKIOUBOKS," CKIED URADLEi:, "AND TEIL ME IF 
rOU EVER SEE THE BEAT O' TH.\T! YKS, FRLLEU CITIZENS, IF YOU WANT TO SEE 
A HERO, JUST YOU LOOK AT M.VSTBR R.^LPH. I SAY !" 

a dozen rods, or so, to the south. Some- 



and a roll of flannel, and brought them 
out and laid them on the table. Then she 
went to the window and looked out ; but 
the rain, which had increased since night- 
fall, beat against the glass with blindiu'.? 
fury, and the sashes creaked and rattled 
as ii some invisible hand were seeking to 
wrench them from their fastenings. 

Tiie moments slipped slowly away ; the 
kettle sent out a little cloud of white mist, 
and the blankets lying over the chair- 
backs were so warm that Mrs. Anderson 
drew them back once or twice, but Ben 
Anderson came not; and now it was nearly 
an hour— and now a full hour, and still, 
though they strained their eyes to get a 
glimpse of the lantern's pale glimmer, 
everything was dense, pitchy darkness. 

"I can stand this thing no longer, 
mother," Ralph said, catching up his cap. ' 
" There's trouble, or father would not 
stay so long, and I am going to know what 
it is, even if he punishes me for it." 

Mrs. Anderson knew it would be use- 
less for her to object, and besides the sus- 
pe»e was getting too painful to bear much 
longer. 

" Be careful, dear ; the waves arc strong 
and high, and if anything should happen 
to mv boy !" 

" O nonsense !" he interrupted, as she 
stooped and kissed him, " what a coward 
vou would make of me !" but he put his 
arms about her neck, nevertheless, and re- 
turned the kiss very fondly and tenderly. 
Willful and impetuous as he was, the 
mother knew his heart was very tender, 
and gentle, and so she remembered only 
that, and forgot his faults. 

Again Myra Anderson waited and lis- 
tened as the moments went by with lag- 
ging feet The tide had turned, but the 
Sturm did not abate, as usual ; indeed, to 
her excited fancy, it grew wilder every 
moment. By and by she came back from 
her post at the window, and proceeded to 
wrap herself tor going out She could 
endure it no longer, she thought, as she 
opened the dotir and .stepped out into the 
thick darkness and drenching rain. Even 
that, fierce as it was, was a relief from the 
dead incubus of suspense and dread 
which had been settling down upon her 
for the last hour. 

The wind caught away her breath, it 
twisted her skill's about her limbs, it drove 
the salt spray into her eyes, but still she 
struggled on— .stag.gering, falling two or 
three times, but resolute as only a weak, 
timid woman can be, when those she loves 
are in peril. It had been growing steadily 
upon her for the last hour that Ben had 
been caught in the surf, and when she saw, 
far down" toward the Point, the ghostly 
glimmer of lanterns moving through the 
mist as if carried by invisible hands, she 
was sure they had found him— they were 
bringing him home! She gave a lit- 
tle, sharp cry, and put her hand to her 

" Hullo! Well, well, if this don't beat 
all natur— I declare !" cried a surprised 
voice, and a lantern was swung so close to 
her face that its sudden light blinded her. 
"What upon earth sent 'you down here? 
it's no plac3 for a woman such a night as 
this," and Ned Bradlee looked, as he felt, 
astonishetl. 

She could not speak, but catching his 
arm she pointed towards the shore, and 
the moving liffhts. 

" Yes, ves," he said hastily, " but go 
home, Mrs. Anderson, you can't do any 
good, it's too late !" 

She dropped his arm and sped away like 
a deer through the blinding storm of rain 
and spray. 

*' Goodness sake ! what does ail the wo- 
man?" he exclaimed, gazing after her an 
instant and then harrying on. " Mrs. An- 
derson! Mrs. Anderson, stop!" he called, 
making a trumpet of his hands, and hal- 
looing with all his might. But she did 
not pause nor turn, but, weak, slender wo- 
man as she was, kept far in advance of 
him. 

The dozen men on the shore were too 
busy to notice her approach, but one of 
them heard Ned Bradlee's shout and 
looked up. He took a step or two forward, 
and between the dull glare of the lights 
on the shore and the one Bradlee carried, 
he caught the ontline of a woman's 
form. Something familiar about it 
made him pause a» instant, then with a 
bound ke sprang up the dripping, sedgy 
sands and caught her in his arms. 



body was swinging a lantern wildly over 
and over his head. 

"It's Ned Bradlee," said one of the 
men. " I saw him headiu' that way a 
minute or two ago. Can't be he's found 
anybody alive now." 

" Wait here, Myra, till I come back," 
Anderson said hastilj'. A sudden thought 
had sent the blood back with an icy chill 
to his heart. Ralph had gone down that 
way nearly a half hour ago, and in the 
excitement he had (piite forgotten him. 

But he had full time to remember now 
as he ran on after his neighbors— full time, 
because the thoughtfi of a lifetime some- 
times crowd themselves into one little mo- 
ment's .space, lie remembered that he had 
spoken sharply to him for coming, and 
bade him get out of the way, telling him 
it was " a boy's place at home until they 
were large enough to be of service, instead 
of being in the way of men who might do 
something." O, who in all the world could 
I ever fill the place— t tie little place— again, 
that one slight form had filled. 

But he was geltin,; nearer and nearer, 

but, with the feeling one experiences in 

nightmarb, it seemed as if his feet were 

I lead and he could not lift them. He 

I hardlv dared turn his eyes toward the lit- 

i lie circle of friends :ind neichbors lest he 

' should see the pity in their faces. 

I " .lust look o' there, I say, neighbors!" 

I cried Bradlee, " and tell me if you ever 

see the beat o' that. Yes, feller citizens, 

if you want to see a hero, just you look 

at Master Ralph, I f-ay !" 

Ben Anderson stopped short and gazed 
at the picture, and I is eyes grew suddenly 
blind ; but it was nol the rain nor the spray 
of the dashing .surf which made them so. 
And this was the picture he saw : 

A dozen men on the edge of a ledgy 
beach, the driving spray and storm en- 
shrouding them in a white, ghostly mist, 
over which half a dozen lanterns cast a 
yellow, smoky glan;. A little dory laid 
half on its side, her prow buried in the 
dripping sea-weed, and standing prom^ly 
erect, hi3 blue eye^ puiple with excite- 
ment, and his wet cheeks flushed, was 
young Ralph Anderson. One haijd grasp- 
ed an oar, the other held the little hand 
of a child, a bright, dark little 
creature, who clung close to him, but 
looked out with steady, fearless eyes at the 
rough- looking men gathered on the beach. 
In the bottom of tie boat lay a woman, 
her head restintr on Ralph's jacket, which 
he hafl taken off for that purpose. She 
was greatly exhaus.ed, evidently, but she 
smiled sweetly when Ralph spoke to her, 
and then again at tlie conclusion of Brad- 
Icc^s 8o?cch. 

"O, here's Anderson, now," Bradlee 
added, as Ben strode straight through the 
swirling surf and slimy-sea weeds, and 
stepped into the boat, and stood an instant 
with uncovered he?.d and uplifted eyes be- 
side his bov. They all knew what was in 
the father's' heart at that moment, and in- 
stinclivelv turned iiway their faces. 

The woman was carefully lifted out and 
borne up the bea?h to Ben Anderson's 
cottage. There were two houses near the 
point where she was found, but no one 
thought of proposing to carry her to 
either of them. Ned Bradlee marched on 
before, swinging h ;8 lantern and carrying 
the little girl in hs arms, she only sub- 
mitting to this arrs.ngement on condition 
that Ralph should walk beside him, where 
she could put out her hand and touch his 
arm or face every few minutes. 

No one had noticed Myra Anderson till 
they were arranging a litter to carry the 
woman on. Then she stepped quietly for- 
ward and assistetl them, and fell back 
again. The nervousness had entirely left 
her, and there -J^as not a steadier nor 
prompter hand thhn hers among them all. 
As they went uf > to the house, the story 
of the rescue was old. Ralph, upon leav- 
ing the rest, kept down toward the Point, 
believing, as he said, that " there was 
something for him to do there." He 
thought he would keep on to the rocks, if 
he saw nothing sooner. But he had not 
proceeded more than a dozen hkIs when 
he saw something white flutiering against 



down to the water and sprang into it 
The light from the lanterns up the shore 
cast a faint light on the water, and the 
tide was falling, and so he managed to get 
the boat out to the rock. He was perfect- 
ly familiar with the place ; there was a 
narrow strip of sandy bar, and keeping 
that between him and the wind, he man- 
aged to hold his boat in place. He found 
the child sitting on the edge of the rock 
where she said she had climbed from her 
mother's arms. The woman had been 
lashed to a spar, which had caught and 
broken against the rock, throwing her up 
on the bar, where she lay, speechless and 
nearly insensible. He had lifted them both 
into the boat, and was just pushing oft 
for the shore when Ned Bradlee came 
along with his lantern and saw him. 

The woman did n<jt retire, notwith- 
standing the careful nursing of Myra 
Anderson and her husband. She lay hour 
after hour in a quiet, semi-con scions slate, 
only rousing if one spoke to her, but only 
to open her eyes and smile faintly, and fall 
away again. But just before sunrise she 
started up and called out sharply : "Viola !" 
The child, which had lain on the bed with 
her all night, opened her great dark eyes 
suddenly, and with a passionate ^ gesture 
threw her arms about her mother s neck. 
" Viola, dear, I am afraid I am going to 
leave you," she whispered faintly. 

Mvra Anderson motioned to her hus- 
band, but he had already seen the swift 
change creeping over the fair, girli.sh- 
looking face. Ho came and stood by his 
wife's side, a feeling of .sadness and i)ain in 
his heart. Death is always sad, coming, 
as it does, with its chili, and silence, and 
pallor, into the brightness and flush of our 
bu.sy lives. We know, and we say, " It is 
best." The world unseen is purer and 
faire-r and more to be desired, and God, 
even 'ovr Got', is Lord of that as well as 
this But still the river isdaik that lies 
between, and the mists come up and fall 
into cur hearts, chilling and shadowing 
them, and veiliug the brightness that lies 
beyond. 

•' Mamma, mamma," sobbed the child, 
" don't talk so ; you shall not leave me here 

alone!" , , . .- ,, 

The woman's eyes wandered wistfully 
around the room. ^Irs. Anderson went 
out and returned in a few rainutos with 
Ralph who was sleeping a little, broken- 
ly on the floor in the kitchen. The fad- 
ing eyes brightened a little, and the lips 
tried to smile, but it was a wan, shadowy 
smile, which brought the tears to Myra 
Anderson's eyes. . , ,, • , 

" Mamma, here he is," cried the girl, 
eagerly, looking up with a smile breaking 
through her tears. 

The woman lifted her arms with sud- 
den strength, and drew the bright face 
down to her bosom, and kissed it jiassion- 
atelv; then she laid the little hand in 
Ralph's, and turned away her face. 

There was a little moment of silence, 
and then .she started suddenly, and caught 
at the child's dres.s. 

" It is not Mallard— your name, Viola- 
it is— is "—and her voice died away in an 
indistinct murmur. 

" What in the child's name ? Mr. An- 
derson asked, putting his ear to her lips 

quickly. , , . . t 

" Y^ou will find it m— the— trunk— I 
wrote -it out— all— all," she whispered, 
with fast failing breath. 



picking up the shattered boxes, and some 
—by far the larger part— standing about in 
groups talking over the incidents of the 
storm, and the wrecks reported here and 
there, and this one in particular. 

"I'd no idee any on 'em escaped, I 
hadn't," said Ned Bradlee, just as Mr. 
Anderson came up. 

" Escaped ! Y''ou don't mean to say ? 

"I mean-ter-say that them are three 
men there— why, one of 'em isn't there! 
O, there he is down the beach— well, he, 
and them two just puttin' off in Simmons 
boat, belonged to that vessel. They are 
French chaps, I take it, leastwise one of 
em is, the tall one, he was mate of the 

" But how were they rescued ?" demand- 
ed Anderson. 

" Well, they wasn't rescued at all, 
seein" as they was safe and snug, high and 
dry on Clark's Island. You see they put 
in there in the life-boat to leave a passen- 
ger, and the storm came on so fast they 
couldn't get back, though ihey tried, and 
came near bein' drowned for their folly. 
A man that ever see salt water ought to 
know better than that, but Lord ! what 
can you expect of » Frenchman ? " 

Before Bradlee had ceased speaking 
Ben Anderson was striding off down the 
beach toward Simmons' boat. Possibly 
they might know something about the- 
woman and child, he thought They were 
just pushing off from the beach when he 
reached them, and he paced the beach im- 
patiently for a half hour belbre they came 
back. In the meantime the other one had 
returned from his ramble down the shore. 
In his absorption Anderson had not 
noticed the man, till, looking up, he saw 
him steadily regarding him. 

" Good morning," he said blandly, with 
the slightest perceptible foreign accent 
" A sad fate for our brave ship," looking 
out toward the wreck. 

" Yes, sir, and a sadder one for the men 
who were in her," Anderson replied, 
gravely. "Y^'ouwere one of the passen- 
trcrs, I take it?" glancing at the style and 
texture of his dress, which at once forbade 
the idea of his being one ol the ship s 



crew. 

"There was a woman ana cbilu — 
" Yes, I heard about it," he interrupted 
hastily. "The woman is dead, I under- 
stand "" 



" She died 
my house." 



at sunrise this morning, at 



CnAPTER IT. 

The sun came up through golden halos, 
and the blue skies bent softly over the 
sea still moaning and sobbing like a pas- 
sionate child. The shore was strewn with 
pieces of the wreck, and trunks and boxes 
of merchandise were scattered here and 
there in wild confusion. Some of the 
trunks and boxes were stove to pieces ; 
others scarcely injured by their battle with 
the elements. Two or three bodies had 
wa.shed ashore during the night; and it 
was concluded all on board had perished. 
The hull and shattered masts of the ship 
were barely discernible through the 
waves that still broke ov^er them when the 
tide was in. At low tide she was plainly 
visible, and her name, " Le Bruu; could 

be Ulstinctly seen. ^., , , ., 

After her mother's death the child had 
cried stormily for a little time, and then 
grew suddenly (luiet. She was a slight, 
lithe little creature ; delicate-looking, had 
it not been for the bright color in her 
dark cheeks, and the- fearless look in her 
great black eyes. One would not have 
taken her to be over six, at first ; but when 
he heard her talk, he would be willing to 
add six more. She, however, laid claim 
to but eight years, which, indeed, seemed 
quite ]ireposterous, she was such a bit of a 
creature. 

" YV)U raust find my mamma's trunk," 
she .said gravely to Italph, when some- 
time during the forenoon they were pre- 
paring to visit the scene of the wreck. 
There had been so much to do at the 
house that there had been no time before. 
" I am afraid I cannot," Ralph replied ; 
" it's not very likely to come ashore, and 
if it does it will be stove into kindling 

" But I tell you, vou shall find it," she 
cried fiercely, her eyes flaming. " Didn't 
my mamma say it was in the trunk— all 
about me. She never would ttll me about 
my papa, but I remember,— but, O, such a 
little bit !" and the small face look on a sad, 
thoughtful look— such a very, very old 
look for a child! 

" But I .shall not know your trunk, little 
Wildfire," Ralph' said, teasingly, enjoying 
her display of spirit with true boyish 

relish. , , ,^ 

" I am not Wildfire, and you needn t 
call me so ! " she cried sharply. " I am just 
Viola Mai— no, she said that was not it ; 
I— I don't know who 1 am," and the red 
lips trembled, and the flashing eyes filled 
with quick tears. 

" There— there, don't cry," Ralph said, 
soothingly. " I am a mean fellow to tease 
you now. I'm very sorry, and I'll try my 
best to find your trunk if you will tell me 
something how it looks, whether it's black, 
or white, or blue." 

" Blue ! A blue trunk ! " she replied, 
scornfully. 

" Well, what is there so terrible about 
that? My mother has got a blue chest 
that is, O, ever so old.— I guess it come 
over in the Mayflower." 

" In what ? " her eyes dilating. 

" O, you don't know anything about 
it," Ralph replied, loftily, "it concerns 
our ancestors. Come, I'm going." 

Thus admonished the child began a 
hasty description of the trunk, which 
amounted to this : It was not very large, 
was black, and her mamma had always 
t called it a " hair trunk." It had a great 
I many very bright brass nails in it— at the 
top and sides and round the boitom, and 
a great M. in brass nails on the cover. 

There was quite- a crowd of people on 
Anderson and Ralph 



the dark edge of i.n abrupt nx-k that rose i the beach when Mr. And. 
a few feet from the shore. He was not ! reached it. A vessel had run down fr«m 
sure but it wa.s the froth ca..t up by the I Duxbury. and several waeon loads of men

had come down 



from Plymouthtown, all 
and hear about the 



very distinctly. He ran back a few feet [ drawn hither to see 

and caught hold of the dory and run it I wreck, and vanously engaged, some m 



" Was she conscious at all ?" he asked 
quickly, a faint color coming into his pale, 
olive cheek. 

" I think she was conscious nearly all 
the time, but she appeared too exhau.sted 
to talk much. I think she was injured in- 
ternally, as well as being chilled and ex- 
hausted. Did you know her, sir?" 

"I saw her the day— 1 think it was— be- 
fore the storm, he answered carelessly. 
" I believe she was an invalid— or delicate, 
at least. I don't remember the name, if 
I heard it" , . 

As he said this he lifted his eyes in a 
swift, stealthy way and dropped them 
again instantly. There was something 
peculiar in their expression and color, but 
Anderson only thought of it indifferently; 
he was too much absorbed in other 
thoughts. 

"I am sorry you don't remember the 
name. I hoped to learn something about 
her ; perhaps they may know," Anderson 
paid, glancing at the men in the boat, who 
were just in shore. . 

"Then she didn't tell you anything? 

Something— a faint shadow of exulta- 
tion, it seemed— in the man's tone made 
Anders(m look up quickly. But there was 
nothing but the kindest interest, with 
perhaps a touch of serious regret, in the 
quiet, handsome face. . 

" Well, she had better not have said 
anything; she only said their name was 
not Mallard, but she left off before telling 
what it was. Perhaps it was only an in- 
sane vagary, but the child— she's an odd, 
fiery little thing— insists on knowing wfio 
she is. There was a trunk on board the 
vessel, belonging to the woman, and she 
said it was all in there— all the story. But 
it's very doubtful about the trunk being 
found, and it wi be likely to be broken 
UD if it is." 

""■I should suppose so. I am very sorry 
I am unable to give yoi any information 
concerning her. I will introduce you to 
the mate, Mr. La ISoir perhaps he can 

do so." , , V . 11- 

Mr. Anderson thanked him warmly ; he 
was very kind and gentlemanly, and he 
showed his goodness of heart by the 
strong interest he evinced in this poor, 
unknown woman. 

The mate of the Le Brunknew nothing 
whatever of the unfortunate woman ; but 
he had seen the child, often, and once she 
had told him that her name was Viola 
Mallard. The man who was with him— 
Dorrance,one of the Ze J5r«n'« crew- also 
remembered the child but never saw the 
woman but once, and that the day before 
the storm, when she bad come on deck 
for a few* moments. He had an impres- 
sion that she was ill, for she was very 
pale when he noticed her, and trembled so 
that the captain gave her his arm to 
assist her below. He believed there 
was no one but himself and Mr. DeVries 
on the deck at the time, as probably the 
gentleman would remember. He glanced 
up as he said this, and Mr. DeVries— for 
that was the name of the very gentle- 
manly passenger— replied to the look by 
saying : 

" Y^es, Dorrance, I remember perfectly. 
I think I mentioned to you that I saw the 
lady and thought her ill, or delicate, he 
added, turning to Mr. Anderson. 

Again that faint chord of exultation m 
the smooth tone struck Anderson, but he 
forgot it a moment after, or only thought 
of it as a peculiarity of the man's speecli. 
Afler a little more inquiry concerning 
the wrecked vessel, the parties separated ; 
Mr. DeVries going back to town, as he 
wished to take an early train to proceed 
to his destination, which, however, he 
forgot to mention ; and LaNoir and Dor- 
rance waiting a little longer to make ar- 
rangements for the burial of their three 
fellow-voyagers. 

The Le Brun was a merchant vessel, 
laden with laces and millinery goods prin- 
cipally, carrying besides such passengers 
as desired such accommodations and tares 
as she offered. If the trip was not as 
speedy or comfortable as one could make 
on the steamers, it had at least one merit, 
viz- economy. One could hardly sup- 
po.se. however, that the elegantly-dressed 
Mr. DeVries came in the Le Brun for that 
reason, if others did. 

"Father." said Ralph, in a low tone, **I 

wish you would come down towards the 

Point with me. There is a black hair 

trunk there, and I think it is the one we 

want to find." , .,,..„ 

' How came you to find it so quickly ? 

" t^uickly ! It's more than an hour since 

we came down. I searched the shore for 

nearly a mile before I found this, and, be- 

si.ies' I wasn't looking for the trunk vjh^n 

• I found it Y'ou saw that tall, handsome- 



looking man who went up in the first 
team? Well, it's queer, anyway! and a 
perplexed look clouded the eager, flushed 

"What is queer? I saw nothing strange; 
and as lor the gentleman— DeVries is his 
name— he evinced a warm interest in the 
unknown lady, and was very sorry he 
could give us no further information ojn- 
cerning her name, or history, or friends 

" Perhaps, yes, of cour.se, Ralph saia, 
absently, the puzzled look still on his 

They walked on in silence till they 
came to a little ledge of broken rock and 
sand, half covered with gUstening wind- 
rows of kelp and sea- weed. Ralph sprang 
up the slight acclivity, and kneeling on 
the shelly sands, pushed away the wet 
mass with swift, eager fingers. 

"See there!" he cried. "I should not 
have found it if it had not been for him. 
I was IcK.king lower .i<Twn, and among the 
heaps of broken ruM)ish, and boxes of 
lace, and flowers and J-iblxms. I noticed 
this Dev— what is it you call him?— when 
Ned Bradlee first pointed him out l 
looked «p once in a while to see where 
he was. and by and-by 1 saw him here, 
kneeling down just as I am now. He 
was here so long that I got curious about 
it, and when he went past me up where 
you were, I made up my mind to see 
what he had found that kept him so 
There, there are the brass nails around 
the lop and up the sides, and there is tne * 
M. on the cover." 

Ben Anderson leaned over and lifted it 
out and set it on the clean sand of the 

bcucli 

" I suppose it's locked," he said, lifting 
the little fall of wet leather. To his sur- 
prise the lid lifted, the lock was broken 
short off. "Ah, I wouldnt have thought 
it would have kept together like this, with 
the lock broken," he said, glancing inside 
and seeing a confused mass of clothing m 
a half wet and very mixed condition. "I 
think you must be mistaken about the 
exact place the gentleman was," he addc^, 
"there is nothing ,in a trunk of chikl s 
clothing, tumbled and wet like this, to at- 
tract a'lnan's attention particularly. 

" But it did, anyway. Why, father, 
don't I know every inch of the beach by 
heart ? and I saw him every lime 1 looked 
up. and always in this one spot, he said, 

positively. . , ,, 

"I presume your 'every time, all came 

within less than five minutes," Mr. Ander- 
son said, smiling at his earuestnes-s. "The 
gentleman did not hurl the trunk by look- 
ing at it, even if it was for the length of 
time you fancy. Now let us take it up to 
the house." , ^ ^ ^, _ 

The child stood on the doorstep as they 
came up the sandy, grass-bordered path, 
her great eves shining like stars, and her 
coral lids parted and eager. 

" O, I am eo glad!" she cned, clapping 
her hands, and then growing suddenly 
grave as she remembered about her 
mother— her pale, beautiful mother, lying 
80 fearfully straight and still in the dark- 
ened 'front room.' " , , ,. , 

She followed them in and knelt down 
on the floor by the trunk, while Mrs. An- 
derson took out the garments one by one 
and shook and folded them. There was a 
few articles of woman's underc.o'hing, a 
book of engravings and a small volume of 
Scott's Poems, with " Genevieve pen- 
cilled in a clear, elegant, masculme hand, 
on the fly leaf. The remainder of the 
contents consisted of a child's clothmg, 
which Viola readily recognized. The 
book of poems, too, she said her mother 
had told her once were to be hers some 
day. because her uaoa had boimht them. 

But though they looked long and care- 
fully, going over every article three or 
four times, there was not a scrap of paper 
or a line written anywhere among them 
all that they could find. And so the 
child's name remained still a secret for 
aught the little trunk revealed. Only one 
thine they found, beside, w bit of knife 
blade about an inch long, broken short 

Viola cried bitterly and would not be com- 
forted. What most children would scarce- 
ly have noticed, was something dark and 
terrible to her ; the more so, doubtless, 
from the circumstances under which It 
had been made known to her. I)t«th, so 
fearful and repellant to every child, was 
made more dreadful still to her, for it had 
taken away at the same 'Jme her mother a 
life and her own naiLe. leaving her 
doubly orphaned. When Mr. Anderson 
told her of the men whom he had met on 
the shore, she stopped crying and looked 
up, her eyes flashing through her tears. 

" If I had seen them they ahauld have 
told me about my mother;" she cried, vehe- 
mently. J » iir,„ 
" But they did not know, dear, Mrs, 
Anderson said, gently. 

" They did \--he did, anyway. I know ; 
because when we went out on deck, and 
she saw him she grew, O, so white ! and 
Captain Waite led her back to our cabin 
again, and she said something about »-'• 
being there, and then she cried and 
the pretty color never came into 
cheeks again." 

• But who was it that she saw?" per- 
sisted Ralph. _ - ^ . T 1. 

•' I don't know his name, but 1 know 
him His eyes are so queer— just thecolor 
of my bronze slippers, with bits of yellow 
in them sometimes— there was when he 
saw my mamma. I know 'twas him on 
the beach, because he went in the boat, 
and wasn't in the vessel after it was so 
dreadful." 

Ben Anderson remembered the odd 
color of Mr. DeVries' eyes, and asked if 
that was the name: but she did not know, 
and the subject was dropped. 

In the quiet, country burying-ground 
there was a new-made grave, and nature, 
who is the tender mother of us all, took 
the fair stranger gently to her bosom, and 
her pitying hand maidens, the birches and 
walnuts, dropped their soft rain of gold 
over her pulseless breast. 

There was little definite the child could 
tell of her hi8U)ry. They had lived in 
France, always, as far as she could remem- 
ber, but her mother was not French. 
They had boarded with an old woman 
whom everybody called " Madame." Once, 
a long time ago, a handsome, dark man 
used to come and stay days and days with 
them, and then they were all so very, very 
happy 1 Her mother used to play on the 
guitar, and sing, O, such lovely songs, 
and sometimes /tesang with her ; and she 
was so bright and pretty when he was 
there ! But one terrible day there came a 
letter to her mamma, and she just dropped 
down on the floor, and she nevfcr opened 
her eyes or spoke all that day, but the 
day after she told her that her papa, the 
dark, handsome gentleman, was dead — 
drowned in crossing a channel ; she was 
sure it was a channel, she bad always re- 
membered that After that her mother 
never talked of him again, but she cried 
sometimes, and always when she received 
a letter, which she did once in a long time

CUAPTlili I. 

Where Massachusetts Bay sweeps to- 
wardB the Cape, entrenched in green hills 
and golden sands, sleeps the good old town 
of Plymouth, memorable, as all the world 
know3, for being the landitsg place of the 
English Puritans more than two centuries 
aga 

All this, being a matter of history, we 
p»a3 by, :,nd introdure, without further 
prear>:."ole, the Anderson family. I l.avc 
v^^vr seen the frenealogical records ot the 
Andersons, asd am not f ure of their legit- 
imate descent from the Puritan «tock. 
Be that as it may, tlicy inherited their 
stern virtue and uprightness of life, 
whether it came by blood, or by the more 
8 ibtlc inlluer.ci which permeated the at- 
mosphere where they lived and died so 
nobly and purely. 

iJenjamin Anderson owned a farm of 
pnme s]xty acres — very prolific in thistles, 
Bwect-'em and pitch-pines. "By the 
Bviat of thy brow shalt thou enm tljy 
bread," admltttd of the broadest and most 
literal iuterprctation in his case. lie 
wrmght patiently, early and la»e, and 
th Tf-by Fturctdi'd in wrenching a co.iv 
fortablo living from the unwilling soil. 
The .-«•* iHrtriendcd him in many way?. 
It drove away the frosts that looked envi- 
ously on hi.s unrifiened fields: it washed 
l)ivi.»<h quanlitios of kelp from its grey 
n cks to enrich the soil, and jurnished his 
table with an abundance of dainty fishea 
Tt was, beside, a continual inspiration, 
linliing in from far away misty skies, in- 
finite an<i illimitable as the thought of 
bojiven. Vt sung forever of action, and pro- 
gress, and victory. 

The farm house, facing toward the sea. 
Was backftd by a long, low, undulating 
hill, and this again by another, more ab- 
rupt and pronounced, den.sely set with 
great sprea'Jing pines, looking like 
a vast emerald boulder thrown up 
ftjrainst the pale sapphire of the skies. Be- 
low were little ritts of green valleys ; roads 
f gleaming like pale gold in the sun ; a shal- 
ow rush-bordered brook, brightened 
by scarlet cardinals, and perfumed with 
nicadowfd mint ; and beyond all, the glare 
and flash sparkle of the sea. 

It was a lovely place— this pleasant little 
farm in the south of Plymouth; had it not 
been, the Andersons would have long since 
listened to the advice of Tom Arnold, Mrs. 
Anderson's brother, and sold it. Tom 
had been in the West a dozen years or 
more. He had grown rich there, and so 
was enthusiastic about the country. It is 
offtn the ca.«(e that Ea.»tern people who do 
n"t grow rich in the West, are not partic- 
ularly cnthu.siastic about it ! 

Ben Anderson had long since given up 
the thought of being a rich man, if he had 
ever cherished it, as he probably had at 
Borne time in his life, as nearly every one 
doc««. He had grown to be content with 
what he had. and only now and then a 
letter from '" brother Tom," broke up the 
calm of his spirit. As long as Myra was 
content he did not care. But " Myra" was 
not exactly content, though he did not 
know it. Tom's glowing description? had 
fiillen into her heart like a spark of Are, 
■which, as yet, only smouldered in dark- 
ness and 8ilen«'e. She had a woman's love 
for pretty surroundings. The bare white 
Boor, which she scoured thrice a week, 
wa.s not quite satisfactory, notwithstand- 
ing its spotless whiteness. She had a 
very feminine weakness for soft carpets 
and "stuffed" furniture, and as Tom 
wrote her aboat his, how elegant they 
were, and how much he gave for them, 
and so forth, her own half dozen "cane 
Beats," and her carpet manufactured by 
her own hands from strips of cloth sewn 
together and woven into a heterogeneous 
melange of all conceivable colors, grew 
more and more unsatisfactory to her. 
8he had a vague idea that " the West " 
was a sort <if Aladdin's Lamp, that trans- 
muted poor people into rich ones without 
the slightest ceremony. 

There was another thing that influenced 
her. Ralph was most ifteen, and he was 
an only child — so much hope centres In 
these only children. Rilph reminded her 
of her brother Tom a dozen times a day 
—fiery, daring, ambitious, chafing against 
the narrowness and poverty that hedged 
him in, as Tom had done. Tom had gone 
West. Ralph declared hin intention of go 
insr t-o .«ea. 77iw was what filleil Myra An- 
derson's heart with fear and dread. Years 
p j:), when she was little more than a child, 
her father's vessel was driven ashore »n 
Manomct r<x:ks, and captain, mate and 
crew, sixteen in all, were swallowed up in 
the boiling surf. Long years of calm and 
quiet *»ad slipped between, but through 
th«m all she saw forever one face, the se?.- 
w« ''A tangled in the dripping hair, and 
about the neck where her arms had 
twined so often and so fondly. If only 
they were West, Ralph would' forget his 
passion for the sea, she said, sitting with 
Tom's last letter in her hand, dreaming 
some very bright dreams for her boy. 

" Mother !' rang out sharp and clear, 
startling her from her pleasant reverie. 

She put the Ittter hastily into her dress 
and came out into the little porch ! A 
di>or came to with a sharp clang, and for 
the first time she noticed that it was very 
dark, and the wind was blowing in little 
sudden gusts that threatened to become a 
gale. 

" I'm going up to the hill, mother— isn't 
it splendid ?"^ Ralph asked e.\citedly, his 
blue eyes darkening and dilating. 

" To the hill : Why it rains now. and 
■ee how black it is, and— t^, mercy : ' This 
exclamation was caused by the wind 
lifting a barrel that stood at the corner of 
the house, and dashing it against the door 
with insane fury. 

" Nonsense ! " Who is afraid of a little 
rsiin and a puff of wind? I only wish I 
was outside — wouldn't it be jolly !" mak-

i asked petalantly. " I saw in a newspaper 
. the other day an account of a man choked 
to death by eating a piece of meat— do 
you suppose his descendants will all for- 
swear meat ? Pshaw ! I am going up to 
the hill ; I want to see if there are any 
sails in sight. I shall not get shipwrecked 
up there,'^ he added dryly, as he drew on 
an old oil jacket of his father's. 
" You are just like Tom—" 
"Yes, so Ihave beard," he interrupted. 
" I suppose you wish I was like Rob 
Thatcher. He is a nice specimen— he is." 
" Ralph, Robert wasn't to blame if 
Lulu was drowned. You do wrongly to 
speak so," she replied gravely, but with a 
little secret thrill of pride at her boy's 
fearless spirit. 

" Wasn't to blame ! Well, if / had a sis- 
ter, and the boat upset that we were in, 
do you think I'd run home and wrap my 
face up in my mother's gown ard cry, 
while she drowned ? That's what he did, 
everybody knows, and / say he is a mis- 
erable coward !" he cried, with flashing 
eyes. " I only wish I had been there- 
such a pretty little thin? as she was I 
It's a pitv it wasn't him— the great baby 1" 
and he flung himself out of the room too 
indirrnant to make more talk about the 
matter. 

ILc wind increased momently, and the 
spray fr.m the incoming waves hung like 
a veil along the long reach of dripping 
sand^. A hollow, hungry roar oime up 
and crept away behind the hills in shud- 
dering echoes. A limb from the great 
poplar in the yard fell against t,he win- 
dows with a crash just as Ben Anderson 
drove up to the barn door. 

"It's the hardeit storm we have had 
these ten years- a regular old- fashioned 
line gale," he said, coming into the 
kitchen where hi.s wife was trying to 
coax the fire up chimney instead of its 
cominff into the room, as it had for the 
last half hour. ^ . 

"I am so glad you have got home, 
Ben .'" she saiil, coming and laying her 
hand on his arm. 

Ue saw how white she wa-s, and no- 
ticed the hand on his arm trembled. 

"What, nervous, little woman?" he 
asked, smiling. 

" I was &• afraid the trees would blow 
over and frighten the horse when you 
came through the woods," she replied, 
with a little hysterical sob. " And the sea 
—just hear it 1" 

''He is in the storm as well as in the 
calm, Myra," he said gravely. But see^ 
ing how nervous she was he did not tell 
her how near her fears had come to the 
truth. A great pine, standing close to the 
road, had gone over as he came by, iust 
clearing his head, and grazing the back of 
the wagon. One instant later and it 
would have crushed him to death, and 
Myra would have waited in vain for his 

coming ! , , , . 

" Where is Ralph ?" he asked, looking 
round, a sudden fear that he had gone 
down the harbor overtaking him. 

" I never saw such a boy— unless it was 
brother Tom. Why, he is rigged up in 
vour old jacket, up on the hill ; he would 
go. He thinks this is ♦ splendid '—this 
terrible storm— and wishes he was out- 
side !" she added, with a shudder. 

" Heaven help those who are outside, 
Mr. Anderson replied, soberly. 

" Do you think tliere are any vessels on 
the coast ?" she asked, anxiously. 

" They had been looking off with their 
glasses from Cole's Hill for an hour or 
two when I left town. There was a large 
ship just discernible in the distance. The 
spray was so thick 'twas next to impossi- 
ble to make her out. I hope she 
managed to keep out to sea ; with this 
wind driving her, if she became unman- 
ageable from any cause, it would bej a 
hard look." 

" Father! there's a sail outside, and it's 
driving in toward the point," Ralph cried 
excitedly, opening the door, which sent a 
sudden sheet of flame and smoke half way 
across the room. 

" Come in, Ralph," Mr. Anderson com- 
manded. 
" But I want to go down to the beach, 

father. I"— ^ , 

" Come in, I sav," he repeated sternly. 

Ralph shut the door and came slowly 
through the porch into the kitchen. It 
would not do to disregard his commands, 
he had learned that thoroughly. His 
mother he could "bluff off." as he called 
it, but he never tried it with his father. 

" You could not stand on the beach an 
instant in this gale, Ralph, and the spray 
drives clear up to the windows— see !" 
And as he spoke it grew suddenly dark, 
and the wind whirled the rain and spray, 
and great handfuls of green leaves which 
it had stripped from the trees, against the 
glass, almost shutting out what little was 
left of the rapidly waning light 

Ralph sat down by the window in si- 
lence, while his mother set the table for 
supper. Outside the storm and the dark- 
ness increased till the long line of beach 
grew ghastly and indistinct, and fitful 
shadows crept shivering through the rank 
March grasses, like lost spirits searching 
for rest. Suddenly the dull boom of a 
gun broke with a slow, sullen crash 
through the pauses of the storm. 

Ralph sprang to his feet, and followed 
his father to the door. The wind caught 
it from them, and lifted it from its hinges 
in an instant. Mr. Anderson drew to the 
inside door as quickly as possible, but not 
before the light had flared and gone out, 
leaving them in a shadowy sort of dark- 
ness, that was full of a dim, brooding 
gloom. Mrs. Anderson crept to the win- 
dow, and listened with her ear against the 
pane. Outside, on the broad stone step, 
Ben Anderson, with Ralph by his side, 
listened to the crash, crash of the minute 
guns that came up through the terrible 
rumble and roar, sometimes with startling 
distinctness, and anon caught up b^ the 
fierce wind, and tossed to and fro till it fell 
back into the sea. and was lost in its hoarse 
diapason. The guns suddenly ceased, and 
the black sky lowered darkly over the 
moaning sea, and though they waited and 
listened, no sound save the shock of 
waves and shriek of winds came up again 
from the stormy east •■ 

The lamp was re-lighted, and the family 
sat down to supper with white, grave 
faces. The simple " grace " which Ben. 
Anderson never omitted, had in it a word 
of earnest supplication that " He who 
holdeth the waves in the hollow of His 
hand, would keep those of His children 
through this hour of terrible peril who 
were cast upon their mercy, and if it was 
His will, bring them all safely to land." 

There was a little pretence of eating, but 
none of them ate more than three or four 
mouthfuls, and with common consent 
they rose from the table. 

" Have the tea kettle full of hot water, 
Mvra, and perhaps you had better bring 
out the blankets, too," said Mr. Anderson, 
taking down his lantern. "I am going 
down to the beach, and though I think the 

ship has gone <jonth of us, it won't do any 
ha ' harm to have things ready." 



"Myra! are you crazy?" he cried, 
holding her white, stony face toward the 



" Y'ou don't think she is ashore here, do

" i hope she is not ashore anywhere, but light Bradlee brought up.

These fierce galea don't generally last

"Can /go, father?" 

Mr. Anderson hesitated, and glanced at 
his wife. She was white as death, and

from the table slipped from her nervous 
hand

" Y^ou were gone so long ! and then all 
those men— wiiat are they here for ?" she 
said slowly, as if just waking from a 
dream. 

He drew her a little closer in his arms 
and turned her facj toward the sea. 
About half a mile from the shore a ship

come back ; I shall only take a look along 
the shore ;" and he shut the door and went 
out, Ralph and his mother watching the 
fitful gleam of the lantern till a turn in the 
path hid it from si£ht 

Mrs Anderson finished clearing the ta- 
ble, filled the tea kettle and put it on the 
flre, and then going to a large blue chest 
in the bevlroom, took out a pile ot blankets 



above the broken masts and tattered sails. 

" We have been tr^ng to save them, 
but it was too late ; they were probably 
exhausted and sank without ft struggle- 
poor fellows!" he said, gravely. 

" O, that wreck— wtiy, I had forgotten!" 
she said, shivering and turning away from 
the gloomy picture, v^hich was however, 
photographed on her brain ind( libly. 

" Hurri ! hurra !" cime up frrm a point 




down to the water and sprang into it. 
The light from the lanterns up the shore 
cast a faint light on the water, and the 
tide was falling, and so he managed to get 
the boat out to the rock. He was perfect- 
ly familiar with the place ; there was a 
narrow strip of sandy bar, and keepmg 
tlrnt between him and the wind, he man- 
aged to hold his boat in place. He found 
the child sitting on the edge of the rock 
where she said she had climbed from her 
mother's arms. The woman had been 
lashed to a spar, which had caught and 
broken against the rock, throwing her up 
on the bar, where she laj', speechless and 
nearly insensible. He had lifted them both 
into the boat, and was just pushing off 
for the shore when Ned Bradlee came 
along with his lantern and saw him. 

The womaja did not retive, notwith- 
standing tne careful nursing of Myra 
Anderson and her husband. She lay hour 
after hour in a quiet, semi-conscious state, 
only rousing if one spoke to her, but only 
to open her eyes and smile faintly, and fall 
away again. But just before sunrise she 
started up and called out sharply : "Viola!" 
The child, which had lain on the bed with 
her all night, opened her great dark eyes 

snddenlv and with a passionate gesture 

threw her arms about her mother's neck. Ben Anderson was stndmg ofi down the 

"Viola, dear. I am afraid I am going to beach toward Simmons boat. Possibly 



picking up the shattered boxes, and some 
—by far the larger part— standing about in 
groups talking over the incidents of the 
storm, and the wrecks reported here and 
there, and this one in particular. 

"I'd no idee any on 'em escaped, 1 
hadn't," said Ned Bradlee, just as Mr. 
Anderson came up. 

" Escaped I You don't mean to say ? 

"I mean-ter-say that them are three 
men there— why, one of 'em isn't there! 
O, there he is down the beach— well, he,

boat, belonged to that vessel. They are

" But how were they rescued ?" demand- 
ed Anderson. , ^ ^ ,i 

"Well, they wasn't rescued at all,

dry on Clark's Island. Y'ou see they put 
in there in the life-lwat to le^ve a passen- 
ger, and the storm came on so fast they 
couldn't get back, though they tried, and 
came near bein' drowned for their folly. 
A man that ever see salt water ought to 
know better than that, but Lord! what 
can you expect of ar Frenchman ? " 

Before Bradlee had ceased speaking 



"jrST LOOK O' THERE, I 8.\V, NKIGHBORS," CRIED BRADLElI, " ABD TEI.L MB IF

and a roll of flannel, and brought them 
out and laid them on the table. Then .she 
went to the window and looked out ; but 
the rain, which had increased since night- 
fall, beat against the glass with blinding 
fury, and the sashes creaked and rattled j 
as if some invisible hand were seeking to j 
wrench them from their fastenings. j 

Tlic moments slipped slowly away ; the 
kettle sent out a little cloud of white mist, 
and the blankets lying over the chair- 
backs were so warm that Mrs. Anderson 
drew them back once or twice, but Ben 
Anderson came not; and now it wte nearly 
an hour— and now a full hour, and still, 
though they strained their eyes to get a 
glimpse of the lantern's pale glimmer, 
everything was dense, pitchy darkness. 

"I can stand this thing no longer, 
mother," Ralph said, catching up his cap. 
" There's trouble, or father would not 
stay so long, and I am going to know what 
it is, even if he punishes me for it" 

Mrs. Anderson knew it would be use- 
less for her to object, and besides the sus- 
pea»e was getting too painful to bear much 
longer. 

Be careful, dear ; the waves arc strong 



a dozen rods, or so, 1 1 the 

body was swinging a lantern wildly over 

and over his head. 

"It's Ned Bradleu,'' said one of the 
men. "I saw him headiu' that way a 
minute or two ago. Can't be he's found 
anybody alive now." 

" Wait here, Myra, till I come back," 
Anderson said hastily. A sudden thought 
had sent the blood bick with an icy chill 
to his heart Ralph had gone down that 
way nearly a half hour ago, and in the 
excitement he had (piite forgotten him. 

But he had full tirae to remember now 
as he ran on after his neighbors— full time, 
because the thought} of a lifetime some- 
times crowd themselves into one little mo- 
ment's space. He remembered that he had 
spoken sharply to him for coming, and 
bade him get out of the way, telling him 
it was " a boy's pla<;e at home until they 
were large enough to be of service, instead 
of being in the way ot men who might do 
I something." O, who in all the world could 
I ever fill the place— the little place— again, 
that one slipht form hud filled. 

But he was getting nearer and nearer, 
but, with the feelirg one experiences in

" O nonsense!" he interrupted, as she | hardlv dared turn bis eyes toward the lit-

arms about her neck, nevertheless, and re 
turned the kiss very fondly and tenderly. 
Willful and impetuous as he was, the 
mother knew his heart was very tender, 
and gentle, and so she remembered only 
that, and forgot his faults. 

Again Myra Anderson waited and lis- 
tened as the moments went by with lag- 
ging feet The tide had turned, but the 
storm did not abate, as usual ; indeed, to 
her excited fancy, it grew wilder every 
moment. By and by she came back from 
her post at the window, and proceeded to 
wrap herself for going out She could 
endure it no longer, she thought, as she 
opened the door and stepped out into the 
thick darkness and drenching rain. Even 
that, fierce as it was, was a relief from the 
dead incubus of suspense and dread 
which had been settling down upon her 
for the last hour. 

The wind caught away her breath, it 
twisted her skirts about her limbs, it drove 
the salt spray into her eyes, but still she 
struggled on— staggering, falling two or 
tliree times, but resolute as only a weak, 
timid woman can be, when those she loves 
are in peril. It had been growing steadily 
upon her for the last hour that Ben had 
been caught in the surf, and when she saw, 
far down" toward the Point, the ghostly 
glimmer of lanterns moving through the 
mist as if carried by invisible hands, she 
was sure they had found him— they were 
bringing him home! She gave a lit- 
tle, sharp cry, and put her hand to her 
heart. 

" Hullo ! Well, well, if this don t beat 
all natur— I declare !" cried a surprised 
voice, and a lantern was swung so close to 
her face that its sudden light blinded her. 
" What upon earth sent lyou down here V 
it's no plac3 for a woman such a night as 
this," and Ned Bradlee looked, as he felt, 
astonished. 

She could not speak, but catching his 
arm she pointed towards the shore, and 
the moving lights. 

" Y'ea, ves,""he said hastily, " but go 
home, Mrs. Anderson, you can't do any 
good, it's too late !" 

She dropped his arm and sped away like 
a deer through the blinding storm of rain 
and spray. 

" Goodness sake ! what does ail the wo- 
man?" he exclaimetl, gazing after her an 
instant and then hurrying on. " Mrs. An- 
derson ! Mrs. Anderson, stop !" he called, 
making a trumpet of his hands, and hal- 
looing with all his might. But .she did 
not pause nor turn, but. weak, slender wo- 
man as she was, kept fkr in advance of 
him. 

The dozen men on the shore were too 
busy to notice her approach, but one of 
them heard Ned Bradlee's shout and 
looked up. He took a step or two for wanl. 
and between the dull glare of the lights 
on the shore and the one Bradlee carried, 
he caught the outline of a woman's 
form. Something familiar about it 
made him pause aa instant, then with a 
bound ke sprang up the dripping, stdgy 
sands and caught her in his arms. 



' .Just look o' there, I say, neighbors ! 
cried Bradlee, " and tell me if you ever 
see the beat o' that. Yes, feller citizens, 
if you want to see a hero, just you look 
at Master Ralph, I f«ay !" 

Ben Anderson stf pped short and gazed 
at the picture, and his eyes grew suddenly 
blind ; but it was not the rain nor the spray 
of the dashing surf which made them so. 
And this was'the picture he saw : 

A dozen men on the edge of a ledgy 
beach, the driving 3p»-ay and storm en- 
shrouding them in a white, ghostly mist, 
over which half a dozen lanterns cast a 
yellow, smoky glaro. A little dory laid 
half on its side, her prow buried in the 
dripping sea-weed, and standing proudly 
erect, his blue eyett puiple wiih excite- 
ment, and his wet cheeks flushed, was 
young Ralph Anderson. One haij^ grasp- 
ed an oar, the othei: held the little hand 
of a child, a bright, dark little 
creature, who cluog close to him, but 
looked out with steidy, fearless eyes at the 
rough-looking men gathered on the beach. 
In the bottom of the boat lay a woman, 
her head resting or Ralph's jacket, whkh 
he had taken off for that purpose. She 
was greatly exhausted, evidently, but she 
smiled sweetly when Ralph spoke to her, 
and then again at the conclusion of Brad- 
lee's speech. 

"O, here's Anderson, now,' Bradlee 
added, as Ben strode straight through the 
swirling surf and slimy-sea weeds, and 
stepped into the beat, and stood an instant 
with uncovered head and uplifted eyes be- 
h'ldf his boy. They all knew what was in 
the father's' heart at that moment, and in- 
stinctivelv turned ;iway their faces. 

The woman was careful]y lifted out and 
borne up the beach to Ben Anderson's 
cottage. There were two houses near the 
point where she vras found, but no one 
thought of proposing to carry her to 
either of them. Is ed Bradlee marched on 
before, swinging his lantern and carrying 
the little girl in his arms, she only sub- 
mitting to this armngement on condition 
that Ralph should walk beside him, where 
she could put out tier hand and touch his 
arm or face every few minutes. 

No one had noticed Myra Anderson till 
they were arranging a litter to carry the 
woman on. Then she stepped quietly for- 
ward and assistefl them, and fell back 
again. The nervousness had entirely left 
her, and there was not a steadier nor 
prompter hand thim hers among them all. 

As they went uj) to the house, the story i 
of the rescue was told. Ralph, upon leav- , 
ing the rest, kept down toward the Point, j 
believing, as he said, that " there was i 
something for him to do there. ' He i 
thought he would keep on to the rocks, if 
he saw nothing sooner. But he had not 
proceeded more tlian a dozen rods when 
he saw something white fluttering against i 
the dark edge of un abrupt rock that rose ; 
a few feet irosa tlie shore. He was not i 
sure but it was tlie Irorh cast up by the 
waves till a child' * voice said, " mammn " 
very distinctly. JJe ran back a few feet 



leave you," she wbispered faintly, 

Mvra Anderson motioned to her hus- 
band, but he had already seen the swift 
change creeping over the fair, girlish- 
looking face. He cume and stood by his 
wife's side, a feeling of sadness and pam in 
his heart. Death is always sad, coming, 
as it does, with its chili, and silence, and 
pallor, into the brightness and flush ot our 
busy lives. We know, and we say, " It is 
best" The world unseen is purer and 
fairer and more to be desired, and God, 
even 'ovr Goc^ is Lord of that as well as 
this But still the river is daik that lies 
between, and the mists come up and fall 
into our hearts, chilling and shadowing 
them, and veiling the brightness that lies 
beyond. 

" Mamma, mamma," sobbed the child, 
" don't talk so ; you shall not leave me here 

alone!" , , . .^ ,, 

The woman's eyes wandered wistfully 
around the room. Mrs. Anderson went 
out and returned in a few minutes with 
Ralph, who was sleeping a little, broken- 
ly on the floor in the kitchen. The fad- 
ing eyes brightened a little, and the lips 
tried to smile, but it was a wan, shadowy 
smile, which brought the tears to Myra 
Anderson's eyes. , . „ . , ^, . , 

" Mamma, here he is," cried the girl, 
eagerly, looking up with a smUe breaking 
through her tears. 

The woman lifted her arms with sud- 
den strength, and drew the bright face 
down to her bosom, and kissed it psissiou- 
ately; then she laid the little hand in 
Ralph's, and turned away her face. 

There was a little moment of silence, 
and then she started suddenly, and caught 
at the child's dress. 

" It is not Mallard— your name, Viola— 
;t is— is "—and her voice died away in an 
indistinct murmur. 

" What is the child a name ? Mr. An- 
derson asked, putting his ear to her lips 

quickly. . , . i_ t 

" Y''ou will find it in— the— trunk— I 
wrote -it out— all— all," she whispered, 
with fast failing breath. 



CHAPTER IT. 

The sun came up through golden halos, 
and the blue skies bent softly over the 
sea, still moaning and s<}bbing like a pas- 
sionate child. The shore was strewn with 
pieces of the wreck, and trunks and boxes 
of merchandise were scattered here and 
there in wdd confusion. Some of the 
trunks and boxes were stove to pieces ; 
others scarcely injured by their battle with 
the elements. Two or three bodies had 
washed ashore during the night; and it 
was concluded all on board had perished. 
The hull and shattered masts of the ship 
were barely discernible through the 
waves that still broke oVtr them when the 
tide was in. At low tide she was plainly 
visible, and her name, " Le Brun, could 
be uistinctly seen. , ., , , , 

After her mother's death the child had 
cried stormily for a little time, and then 
grew suddenly quiet She was a slight, 
lithe little creature ; delicate-looking, had 
it not been for the bright color in her 
dark cheeks, and the- fearless look in her 
great black eyes. One would not have 
taken her to be over six, at first ; but when 
he heard her talk, he would be willing to 
add six more. She, however, laid claim 
to but eight years, which, indeed, seemed 
quite preposterous, she was such a bit of a 
creature. 

" You must find my mamma's trunk," 
she said gravely to Ralph, when some- 
time during the forenoon they were pre- 
paring to visit the scene ot the wreck. 
There had been so much to do at the 
house that there had been no time before. 

" I am afraid I cannot," Ralph replied ; 
" it's not very likely to come ashore, and 
if it does it will be stove into kindling 
■wood." 

" But I tell you, vou shall find it," she 
cried fiercely, her eyes flaming. " Didn't 
my mamma say it was in the trunk — all 
about me. She never would ttll me about 
my papa, but I remember,— but, O, such a 
little bit !" and the small face look on a sad, 
thoughtful look— such a very, very old 
look for a child ! 

" But I shall not know your trunk, little 
Wildfire," Ralph" said, teasingly, enjoying 
her display of spirit with true boyish 

relish. , , ,^ 

" I am not Wildfire, and you needn t 
call me so ! " she cried sharply. " I am just 
Viola Mai— no, she said that was not it ; 
I— I don't know who I am," and the red 
lips trembled, and the flashing eyes filled 
with quick tears. 

" There— there, don't cry," Ralph said, 
soothingly. " I am a mean fellow to tease 
you Tww. I'm very sorry, and I'll try my 
best to find your trunk if you will tell me 
something how it looks, whether it's black, 
or white, or blue." . 

" Blue ! A blue trunk ! " she replied, 
scornfully. ., , ^ ^ 

" Well, what is there so temble about 
that ? My mother has got a blue chest 
that is, O, ever so old,— I guess it come 
over in the Mayflower." 

" In what ? " her eyes dilating. 

" O, you don't know anything about 
it," Ralph replied, loftily, "it concerns 
our ancestors. Come, I'm going. ' 

"Thus admonished the child began a 
hasty description of the trunk, which 
amounted to this : It was not very large, 
was black, and her mamma had always 
called it a " hair trunk." It had a great 
many very bright brass nails in it— at the 
top and sides and round the bottom, and 
a gr««t M. in brass nails on the cover. 

There was quite a crowd of people on 
the beach when Mr. Anderson and Ralph 
reached it. A vessel had run down freiu 
Duxbury, and several waeon loads of men 
iMwi come down from Plymonthtown, all 
drawn hither to see and hear about the 

in 



they might know something about the. 
woman and child, he thought They were 
just pushing off from the beach when he 
reached them, and he paced the beach im- 
patiently for a half hour before they came 
back. In the meantime the other one had 
returned from his ramble down the shore. 
In his absorption Anderson had not 
noticed the man, till, looking up, he saw 
him steadily regarding him. 

" Good morning," he said blandly, with 
the slightest perceptible foreign accent 
" A sad fate, for our brave ship," looking 
out toward the wreck. 

" Yes, sir, and a sadder one for the men 
who were in her," Anderson replied, 
gravely. " You were one of the passen- 
trers, I take it?" glancing at the style and 
texture of his dress, which at once forbade 
the idea of his being one of the ship s 
crew. 

" I was." 

" There was a woman and child — " 

" Yes, I heard about it," he interrupted 
hastily. "The woman is dead, I under- 
stand ^"

looking man who went up m the first 
team? Well, it's queer, anyway! and a 
perplexed look clouded the eager, flushed 
fiMse. 

" What is queer? I saw nothmg strange; 
and as for the gentleman— DeVries is his 
name— he evinced a warm interest in tnc 
unknown lady, and was very sorry he 
could give us no further information wn- 
cerning her name, or history, or friends 

" Perhaps, yes, of course." Ralph said, 
absently, the puzzled look stiU on hia 

They walked on in silence till they 
came to a little ledge of broken rock and 
sand, half covered with glistening wind- 
rows of kelp and sea-weed. Ralph sprang 
up the slight acclivity, and kneeling on 
the shelly sands, pushed away the wet 
mass with swift, eager fingers. 

"See there!" he cried. "I should not 
have found it if it bad not been for h\m. 
I was UK,king lowct drrwn.and among the 
heaps of broken rubbish and boxes of 
lace, and flowers and J^l),lxm8. I noticed 
this Dev-what is ityoucairhimr-when 
Ned Bradlee first i)ointed him out i 
looked «p once in a while to see where 
he was. and by and-by 1 saw him here, 
kneeling down just as I am now. He 
was here so long that I got curious about 
it, and when he went past me un where 
you were, I made up my mind to see 
what he had found that kept him so. 
There there are the brass nails around 
the top and up the sides, and there is the 
M. on the cover." 

Ben Anderson leaned over and lifted it 
it on the clean sand of the 



and caught hold i>f the dory and run it ' wreck, and variously engaged, some 



" She died at sunrise this morning, at 
my house." 

" Was she conscious at all ? he asked 
quickly, a faint color coming into his pale, 
olive cheek. 

" I think she was conscious nearly ail 
the time, but she appeared too exhausted 
to talk much. I think she was injured in- 
ternally, as well as being chilled and ex- 
hausted. Did you know her, sir ?" 

"I saw her the day— 1 think it was— be- 
fore the storm, he answered carelessly. 
" I believe she was an invalid— or delicate, 
at least. I don't remember the name, if 
I heard it" 

As he said this he lifted his eyes in a 
swifl, stealthy way and dropped them 
again instantlv. There was something 
peculiar in their expression and color, but 
Anderson only thought of it indifferently; 
he was too much absorbed in other 
thoughts. 

"I am sorry you don't remember the 
name. I hoped to learn something about 
her ; perhaps they may know," Anderson 
said, glancing at the men in the boat, who 
were just in shore. 

"Then she didn't tell you anythmg? 

Something— a faint shadow of exulta- 
tion, it seemed— in the man's tone made 
Anders<m look up quickly. But there was 
nothing but the kindest interest, with 
perhaps a touch of serious regret, in the 
quiet, handsome face. 

" Well, she had better not have said 
anything; she only said their name was 
not Mallard, but she left off before telling 
what it was. Perhaps it was only an in- 
sane vagary, but the child— she s an odd, 
fiery little thing— insists on knowing who 
she is. There was a trunk on board the 
vessel, belonging to the woman, and she 
said it was all in there— all the story. But 
it's very doubtful about the trunk being 
found, and it wL be likely to be broken 

UD if it is." 

'"■I should suppose «o. I am very sorry 
I am unable to give yoi any information 
concerning her. 1 will introduce you to 
the mate, Mr. La Noir perhaps he can 

do so." , , . . , V 

Mr. Anderson thanked him warmly ; he 
was very kmd and gentlemanly, and he 
showed his goodness of heart by the 
strong interest he evinced in this poor, 
unknown woman. 

The mate of the Le Brt/nknew nothing 
whatever of the unfortunate woman ; but 
he had seen the chUd, often, and once she 
had told him that her name was Viola 
Mallard. The man who was with him— 
Dorrance, one of the Le BrurCs crew— also 
remembered the child but never saw the 
woman but once, and that the day before 
the storm, when she had come on deck 
for a few* moments. He had an impres- 
sion that she was ill, for she was very 
pale when he noticed her, and trembled so 
that the captain gave her his arm to 
assist her below. He believed there 
was no one but himself and Mr. DeVries 
on the deck at the time, as probably the 
gentleman would remember. He glanced 
fip as he said this, and Mr. DeVries— for 
that was the name of the very gentle- 
manly passenger— replied to the look by 
saying: 
" Yes, Dorrance, I remember perfectly. 

I think I mentioned to you that I saw the 
lady and thought her ill, or delicate, he 
adcfed, turning to Mr. Anderson. 

Again that faint chord of exultation m 
the smooth tone struck Anderson, but he 
forgot it a moment after, or only thought 
of it as a peculiarity of the man's speech. 

After a little more inquiry concerning 
the wrecked vessel, the parties separated ; 
Mr. DeVries going back to town, as he 
wished to take an early train to proceed 
to his destination, which, however, he 
forgot to mention; and LaNoir and Dor- 
rance waiting a little longer to make ar- 
rangements for the burial of their three 
fellow-voyagers. 

The Le Brun was a merchant vessel, 
laden with laces and millinery goods prin- 
cipally, carrying bewdes such passengers 
as desired such accommodations and fares 
as she offered. If the trip was not as 
speedy or comfortable as one could make 
on the steamers, it had at leart one merit, 
viz: economy. One could hardly sup- 
pose, however, that the elegantly-dressed 
Mr. DeVries came in the LeBrun for that 
reason, if others did. 

"Father," said Ralph, in a low tone, "I 
wish you would come down towards the 
Point with me. There is a black hair 
trunk there, and I think it is the one we 
want to find." .,_,„« 

' How came you to find it so «iuickly ? 

" Quickly ! It's more than an hour since 
we came down. I searched the shore for 
ntariy a mile before I found this, and, be- 
si.1es, I wasn't looking for the trunk when 

I I found it Y^on saw that tall, handioiae- 



out and set 
beach 

" I suppose it's locked," he said, lifting 
the little fall of wet leather. To his sur- 
prise the lid lifted, the lock was broken 
short off. "Ah, I wouldnt have thought 
it would have kept together like this, with 
the lock broken," he said, glancing inside 
and setting a confused mass of clothing^in 
a half wet and very mixed condition. 'I 
think you must be mistaken about the 
exact place the gentleman was, ' he addc^, 
"there is nothing , in a trunk of child s 
clolhins, tumbled and wet like this, to at- 
tract a^'man's attention particularly. 

" But it did, anvway. Why, father, 
don't I know every inch of the beach by 
hearty and I saw him every time 1 looked 
up, and always in this one spot," he said, 

positively. . , ,, 

"I presume your 'every time, all came 

within less than five minutes," Mr. Ander- 
son said, smiling at his earnestness. " The 
gentleman did not hurt the trunk by look- 
ing at it, even if it was for the length of 
time you fancy. Now let us take it up to 
the house." , ^ ., 

Th« child stood on the doorstep as they 
came up the sandy, grass-bordered path, 
her great eves shining like stars, and her 
coral lids parted and eager. 

" O, I am so glad!" she cned, clapping 
her hands, and then growing suddenly 
grave as she remembered about her 
mother— her pale, beautiful mother, lying 
so fearfully straight and still in the dark- 
ened 'front room.' " , , u ^^w« 
She followed them m and knelt down 
on the floor by the trunk, whUe Mrs. An- 
derson took out the garments one by one 
and shook and folded them. There was a 
few articles of woman's underc:o*hing, a 
book of engravings and a small volume of 
Scott's Poems, with " Genevieve pen- 
cilled in a clear, elegant, masculme hand, 
on the fly leaf. The remainder of the 
contents consisted of a child's clothmg, 
which Viola readily recognized. The 
book of poems, too, she said her mother 
had told her once were to be hers some 
day, because her paoa had bouitht them. 

But though they looked long ana care- 
fully, going over every article three or 
four times, there was not a scrap of paper 
or a line written anywhere among them 
all that they could find. And so the 
child's name remained still a secret for 
aught the little trunk revealed. Only one 
thine they found, beside, k bit of knife 
blade about an inch long, broken short 

Viola cried bitterly and would not be com- 
forted What most children would scarce- 
ly have noticed, was something dark and 
terrible to her ; the more so, doubtless, 
from the circumstances under which it 
had been made known to her. D^th, so 
fearful and repellant to every child, was 
made more dreadful still to her, for it haa 
taken away at the same ^ime her mother s 
life and her own nao-e. leaving her 
doubly orphaned. When Mr. Anderson 
told her of the men whom he had met on 
the shore, she stopped crying and looked 
up, her eyes flashing through her tears. 

" If I had seen them they ahauld have 
told me about my mother;" she cried, vehe- 
mently. , ■,»!•»«• 

" But they did not know, dear, Mrs. 
Anderson said, gently. 

" They did l--he did, anyway. I know ; 
because when we went out on deck, and 
she saw him she grew, O, so white ! and 
Captain Waite led her back to our cabin 
again, and she said something about his 
t^ing there, and then she cried and the 
the pretty color never came Into her 
cheeks again." 

•• But who was it that she saw?" per- 
sisted Ralph. - w . T u 

• I don't know his name, but I know 
him. His eyes are so queer— j'lst the<X)lor 
of my bronze slippers, with bits of yellow 
in them sometimes— there was when he 
saw my mamma. I know 'twas him on 
the beach, because he went in the boat, 
and wasn^t in the vessel after it was so 
dreadful." 

Ben Anderson remembered the odd 
color of Mr. DeVries' eyes, and asked if 
that was the name; but she did not know, 
and the subject was dropped. 

In the quiet, country burying-ground 
there was a new-made grave, and nature, 
who is the tender mother of us all, took 
the fair stranger gently to her bosom, and 
her pitying hand maidens, the birches and 
walnuts, dropped their soft rain of gold 
over her pulseless breast. 

There was little definite the child oonld 
tell of her history. They had lived in 
France, always, as far as uie could remem- 
ber, but her mother was not French. 
They had boarded with an old woman 
whom everybody called " Madame.** Once, 
a long time ago, a handsooM, dark man 
used to come and stay days and days with 
them, and then they were all so very, very 
happy t Her mother used to play on the 



guitar, and sing, O, such lovely songs, 
and sometimes he sang with her ; and she 
waasoJaright and pretty when he was 
there I Bat one terrible day there came a 
letter to her mamma, and snejost dropped 
down on the floor, and she never opened 
her ^es or 8p<*e aU that day, but the 
day after she tokl her that her papa, the 
dark, handsome gentiemsa, was dead- 
drowned in crossing » channel ; she was 
snre it was a channel, she had always re-

never talked of him ag^n, but she cried 
sometimes, and always when she received

them, physically, morally and intellectually. 
The result was that those who do nut use tn-

higher moral record. In consequence of this 
report, an edict was issued prohibiting tbe use

A C;i.()l<10l !$ !i$b:LL. 

Money iu the Opeiatioii. 

Only a week or two since, some enterprising 
dealers iu Dry Goods * Groceries in oto of our 
Eastern cities billed a lar-<c lot of the r choic- 
est goods to a merchant of this city. Cut for- 
tunately, before the goo'U kft the stores, the 
dii.ovfiiy was made that the book-kecjiers had 
billed the goods at suspiciously low fi jures. — 
Nothing was said however on that ciay, and 
the porters moiintime, who were liberally paid 
for their .services, immediately complet id box- 
ing the goods, and actually shipped them be- 
fore the proprietors, in their exaltation over 
a supposi d timely discovery of the miinipula- 
tions of their employees, had thought af coun- 
termanding the order. 

.\s soon as it wa« ascertained that tie ship- j 
inent had been made, a close examir ation of 
the books revealed not only that thosj goods ' 
which were hilled <if uH, were alarmingly low, 
but that tlteyorUrs Imd sioKed aicay in the box- 
en vftich If id hten ihlpptd, a lot of valuable : 
Parasols, several gross of Clarko's, and Coats- i 
Thread, and a full line of Lady's and Gents 
Collars and CufT?. The dignity ef the Houses : 
prohibited them from taking any le<cal steps , 
over the small articles mentioned, and i.hc mat- | 
ter was allowed to drop. 

The real astuteness of the Eastern dealers ; 
however, is shown in the fact that when the 
boxes arrived here, they not only contained i 
Liuen Suits, Dcnim.s Tickings, Shirtiigs and 
Delaines, but Drap Dlliver. Among other ■ 
<»oods which if'if u»t urdtred, were found not ! 
only Gingham:!, Sheetings, Poplins, Mohair | 
Suiting, Hats, Caps and Cassimeres, but Challi, I 
Clash, Shakers, Groceries. Crockery and Mus- : 
quite Bar. One box contained a full line of | 
Yankee Notions, and ^^ | 

A. B., IIlPGORE, ] 

and Thompson's Corsets. 

As a matter of course, you will un<icrstand 
(hat these goods will all be sold as soon, as pos- ' 
sible, andat low FifiiwES. Every box was ' 
unpacked at the store of ' 

J. r. WINSHIP, I 

where they may bo examined at leisure by all '.

A desperate prize fight to 3k place near Man- 
kato on the morning of the 29th ult., between 
licurge Coon, and Thomas Wheeler, a/i°u« 
"Bridgeport Tom." The Mankato Record of 
last week contained a detailed report of the 
"mill," written in true pugilastic argot, a<id it ', 
is uid that Red Handed Mike, who acted as j 
Umpire, wis the special reporter. Seventy I 
rounds were fought in 1} hours. On the last 
round Coon urged the fight, and every inch 
WAS closely contested. They clinched, and as ; 
Tom went down Coon dealt him a severe blow 
in the side, which was claimed foul, and decid- 
ed the fight in favor of Tom. 

Last S.tturday Mr Neff, foreman of the 
Union office, and Ch.irles McMaban, of this . 
plaee were at Eagle Lake, seme six miles from ! 
this city, and described the shore as lined with 
a winrow of drad fish, some S 01 10 feet from ' 
the waters edge, where they had been deposit- | 
ed by the surf. These were in immenM quan- 
tities, and of all varieties usually found in our 
lakes — 
wo 

perch. Ac. Other parties informed them that 
it was the same all ar.tund the lake, which is 
some five miles long. Kagle Lake, near the 
outlet is shallow ; toward the ncrin end of the 
lake it ii Mid to b« very deep. Th4 same 
thing happened to th« fish in one ot the beau- 
tifnl lakes at Fairrennl. Martin Coanty, du-

old Tout all over. Well, neighbor Ben, 
it's mv advice that vou accept the oiler

shrewdly divining that they could talk it 
over more freely alone. 

Ben' Anderson and his wife sat up late 
thnt nicht diseussing the subject pro and 
con. lie saw that she favored going-he 
did not know that she always had— ana 
for her sake, becniuse her brother was 
[here, and f.>r the sake of his boy whom 
he knew he could not keep long if he siaid 
where he was, he said "perhaps 't was bej 
for them to go." But, O, how in that hour 
his heart clung to the old home ! Hm\ 
Soar grew the thought of the wooded 
hills, and the goldi.n sands; and, O, how 
infinitely dear the wooing voice of the 
beautiful sea. There, too, his dear ones 
slept, and no other land, be it ever so rich 
or fair, could be to him what this bleak 
New En sland coast was. 

There was little said about the proposed 
change before Ralph or Viola, but Ralph 
knew that it was being ^^^om^ Cim- 
sidered by his father, and he told Viola, 
privately, that he " hoped they should go, 
for he was sure his cousin Blanche was 
themostbeautiful. andthe nicest girl in 
the world, and he guessed she knew a 
great deal by the way she wrote; and she 
was so anxious he should come too ! 

"i don't want to go ; and I don't want 
to see her, and I don't like her ! broke m 
Viola, impetuously. 
" Well, what now, Wildfire?" he asked, 



better for them, and that it would keep 
Ralph away from the sea, kept up her 
courage. She knew by her husband s

%r him to sunder the ties which nearly

shoulder, and with perhaps a faint pres- 
cience of the future, he put his arm about 
her and drew her to his bosom in a Uttle 
convulsive clasp. 

CHAPrER III. 
It was sometime early in February 
that Ben. Anderson came home one 
morning and tossed a letter into his wife s 

'•'A letter from Tom, I reckon, though 
it isn't his writing," he sai- 1, holding it up 
to the light as he gave It to her.

at the little flushed face and quivering 

lips. 

" I don't never want to see her, and 1 m 
eoinff back to Madame ! Vm not rich, nor 
nice." nor beautiful ; and I don't know a 
treat deal either, and you won t love me 
any at all when you see her," and the pas- 
sionate voice grew suddenly tremulous, 
and the little bosom rose and fell with dry, 
suppressed sobs. ., , , , , v*«i^ 
" O. that's it. is it v" he laughed, a little 
pL-ased glow flashing into the boyish lace. 
It was rather nice to have two girls like 
him' But, with true masculine tact, he 
saw it would never do to let her know 
that he thought so. So with a nonchal- 
ance that would have done credit to a 
much older head, he exclaimed : / 

" Nonsense ! why she's my cousin, and 
a fellow is expected to think a good dea 
of his cousin, especially if she is nice and 
pretty, like Blanche. But I shall love 
V()« all the same for that, little Wildfire. 
I don't believe she is any prettier than 
you ; and anyway I skall love you best. 

"Always, Ralph— always, so long as 
you live v" she cried, eagerly, looking up 
into his fiice with shining eyes. 
" Always, as long as I Uve," he repeated, 

smiling. , „ f.

faculty of turning their thousrhts away 
from unhappy regrets to pleasant anticipa- 
tions of the future, and so by the time 
they steamed up the beautiful Detroit 
river to the city, they were a very happy, 
hopeful company. It was just siineet, and 
the crimson glow fell over the impid 
water, and touched the white walls and 
spires of the city with a soft, auroral flush. 
Nowhere, in all the soft air or radiant sky, 
was there a hint of the dark cloud lower- 
ing upon them. • , * ♦„ ro 
There they stopped over night to re- 
sume their journey on the following day. 
The hotel was crowded witu people, trav- 
elers awaiting transportation in dferent 
directions. Mr. Anderson and Bradlee 
rose before sunrise to take a look round 
the town. Coming up a street on their 
way home, they saw a man and little giri 
pass the corner of the street some distance 
ahead, and disjippcar down a side street. 
" Well if that didn't make me think ot 
Humming-bird ! " Bradlee exclaimed ; his 
net name for Viola being that. 

"Oh ! I didn't notice," his companion re- 
nlied, carelessly. , 

They walked about awhile longer and 
thea went up to the hotel. Mr. Ander- 
son looked in the parlor, but his ^ylte was 
not there, and he went.up to their room. 
" I was just comiug down," she siMd, us 
he opened the door, " I had to comb my , 
hair, and then I thought I'd make the bed ; 
I had time enough." . 

" I don't believe folks do it, 3lyra, but 
thev can tear it to pieces if they doni like 
it, so there's no harm done. But where 
is Viola?" , .,, 

" I let her go down ; she was so wild 
I couldn't keep her here. I never saw 
such a child ! Wten we get settled we 
must govern her a little more ; that is all 
she needs to make her perfect. I've got a 
little plot in my head." laughing a littie ; 
" I am going to train her up for a daughter- 
in-law. She thinks everything of Ralph, i 

This she said very confidentially, as they 

went down into the parlor, and Ben 

Anderson smiled at her "premature 

matchmakine." as he called it, but did not 

look at all displeased with the plan, liie 

truth was, he had thought of it himselt 

more than once, but being a man, of course 

he didn't say so. Mrs. Anderson looked 

through the parior, but Viola was not 

there. She went out to the piazza ; there 

were two or three children there, but no 

Viola. She called to her husband, and a 

hurried search was at once instituted, but, 

though the house, large as it was, was 

gone over twice, no trace of the girl could 

be found. Ralph was awakened by his 

mother, and joined in the search, but to no 

avail— Viola was not in the house! 

A young man who worked in the stables 
had seen a child going down the street 
with a man, and though he didn t think of it 
at the time as anything strange, he believed 
the child ran down the steps from the 
house ; but she seemed to go willingly; the 
man did not touch her, or compel her, as 
he could see.

That night, after Ben Anderson had

as oossible from destruction and eternal

Then Ralph knew for the first time that 
his lather had decided to go. The next 
day it was very generally noised abou 
that " Ben Anderson was going to sell out 
and fro West." Everybody talked about 
it and some prophesied he " would be 
back within a year, if he wasn t too poor 
" thers aeam sa 

and 



dom," as 



Look Ahead. 

Put money in thy purse" is sound wis- 
well as poetry. For the last 
eight years people have been watching 
the fluctuations in th« value of the paper 
which represented monf-y in all the actual 
bunness and wants of life. But there is 
one feature of the printed paper of which

' she 
how 



they wished they were going, anu ap- 
plauded his resolution. Among the latter 
was Ned Bradlee, who " always thought 
he should like to ste the big pastures they 
braizucd so much of." 
" VV'hy not go with us, Mr. Bradlee ? 

said Ralph. , . .. , 

" Wall, now, 'Squire, you've just hit it 
why not ? You are a bright boy to think 
of it, for I'll be hanged if I ever should. 

" I wish you would go, Bradlee, said 
Anderson, earnestly. 

" Yes do, Ned; I should be so glad to 
have you," Mrs. Anderson added, warmly. 

"You would? Lord : then 1 11 go A 
man o' my gallantry could never stand out 
against a woman's wishes, no matter what 
they asked," he said, with a jolly laugh. 

••'Not if they wished to marry you.' 
asked Ralph. 

"Wall, perhaps not. 'Squire, it they 

rote me fine, wonderful letters on yaller- 

laper." he said, with comical grav- 

ly I ihink that would fetch most any 

elier that had any feelin' about him, don t 



Ralph colored to the temples with shame 
and annoyance. Everybody wl»;;\h'^« 
been youns: knows with what a halo ot 
sacredness these "first" letters are invest 
ed and how it hurts and shocks the young 
heart to have some rude hand swoop 
down through the beautiful aureole, and 
hold up to laughter and ridicule the pre- 
rions treasure. To this day I feel a stir 

I remember a 



neither "bulls" nor "bears 
priveit: It was always a necessity, 
money, or its representative, always will 
be ; and whatever may be its market value 
on the "street," it always buys more or 
less of the neces-saries of life. Nothing 
can take the place of money in this re- 
spect. It is always convertible into meal 
and drink and clothes, and that is what 
can be said of no other article. For pur- 
poses of speculation having an ' iincer- 
tain " value, for practical use it is always 
certain. The aim of every prudent man 
then should be always to have on harid a 
reserve of this " universal solvent. It 
money fluctuates in its nominal price or 
purchasing power, everything else fluctu- 
ates too; and probably the thing called 
money is more stable in its value than 
anything else. Employment may be in- 
terrupted by illness or by changes. Goods 
bought and paid for may became unmar- 
ketable. But money is alwavs m request 
and never out of season. Therefore, as 
we have said, it should be the effort ol 
every man, whatever be bis income, to 
live within it, and thus to guard against 
the contingency, which may come to ariy- 
body, of beiBg for a while without an in- 



wrot 

edged paper.

It the meantime Mrs Anderson had run 
through her brother's letter, and bwked 
up with a little eager expression on her 

- •' Tom wants us to come out West this

verv ckrefully, and looking down.

certain afternoon, when, coming home

drawer— my drawer, it was -one of them

It is curious how almost universal is in- 
difference to this precaution. Even suc- 
cess^ful business men are prone to lock up 
their accumul itions in extended business 
obiects and various other ways, some ot 
them quite unproductive, leaving them; 
selves actually without any nntnediate re. 
sources, if by any means their income is 
interrupttd. Many a bad bargain is 
forced upon those who are compelled to 
realize, when if they had the power they 
would wait. The corners into which 
"poor rich men" are thus driven show 
that the course of trade as well as the 
march of time brings its revenge. Rich 
men as well as poor are pushed Jor 

miney." , .• • 

Yet, while with the rich this is an in- 
convenience, with the poor, or with those 
who live from day to day. to be straight- 
ened for money is a difliculty, and may 
amount to a misery. There are some peo- 
ple who have the sagacity to foresee, and 
foreseeing, to alleviate the trouble And 
this they do in the way we have indicated 
bv keeping always within the limits ol 
iheir receipts while they are receiving 
anything, and putting aside the surplus 
where it can be reached in time of neces- 
sity If to do this could become common, 
the burden of poverty upon the poor and 
the burden of support of those too poor 
to help themselves would be very much 
diminished.— PhiUtdf I pkia I^:dger. 



tem leads to imlolence, pauperism, and 
vice. 

Pakis consumes 208,000,000 francs 
worth ot wine, and yet only 112,000,000 
francs is the value that enters the city 
from ontside. Hence, 90,000,000 francs 
worth must be manufactured there. 

Three childrea of Mrs. Perry, of High 
Forest, Minn., -were poisoned the other 
day by eating what they supposed were 
artichokes, and ane of them, a Uttle girl, 
died from the effects. 

An Englishman having paid an Irish 
shoeblack with rudeness, was thus ac- 
costed by the "dirty urchin' : My 
honey, all the polish you have is upon 
your boots, and I guv you that !" 

The Peoria (III.) Tramcnpt says two 
men iu that city have been experimenting 
upon a perpetual motion machine— one tor 
twenty and another for twenty five years. 
The toughest- chicken story comes all 
the way from N orth Carolina : " Weldon 
has a hen which has laid twenty-seven 
eggs, is now trying to hatch twenty-seven 
chickens from t uem, and leaves her nest 
every day to dt^posit an egg m another 

nest.'" 

At Elyria, Ohio, a few days ago, a 
little girl six years old found a paper ol 
strvchuine which had been purchased to 
destroy rats, and with childlike curiobity, 
touched her torgue to it. In a few min- 
utes she was seized with convulsions, and 
died in less than an hour afterwards. 

On the evening of April Ist two Bow- 
doin College btudents, with blackened 
faces and shaboy clothes, went throtigh 
college with a f ubscription paper, stating 
that they were trying to obtain the where- 
withal to retur a South. Quite a sum of 
money was subscribed before it was dis- 
covered to be t.n " April fool. 

A LMJY residing in Charleston, Mass, 
who has sull'erid lately from an inflamed 
neck, has been told by her physicians 
that it is caused by insects called borers, 
inhabiting the Hindoo bark braid of her 
chignon. She has cast away her chignon 
and has had ht r bead shaved, fearing sotne 
of the insects had taken up their abode 
m her natural back hair. 

"Dtspepsia cured for |2 " is the cheer- 
ing announcement of an advertisement 
etnanating from that cityof ideas Boston. 
The cure is indicated in two httle wotxl 
cuts, giving a lifelike representation of a 
wood-saw and saw-horse. This treatment 
is recommended to be taken once or twice 
per day—" sure care giarante«d or mon-

In Charlottesville, Va., the other day, 
upon the return home of a party of young 
ladies and gentlemen, who had been prac_ 
ticing at a target with pistols, one of 
them! Miss Eveline Goodloe, laughing y 
pointed a pisi^l at herselt, and was mak-

Help for the Miserable. 

No woBder that the face of the dyspeptic has a 
drapjred, worn, hopeless expression that is pitiful 
to see. No wonder that the miserable martyr to 
indigestion is fretful, Irritable, and unsocial. Who- 
ever can bear the pangs of this tormentlnp com- 
plaint cheerfully, and with an unruffled temper, is 
little short of a saint. But why should human 
fortitude continue to be thus sorely tried, when an 
absolute specific for the disease Is always at hand T 
Everywhere within the limits of civilization in this 
hemisphere Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters Is obtain- 
able, and the history of the first case of dyspepsia

Anderson, anx- 



as they were, still ^.«^*.e good, strangers 
of the raiisip? _^ *^» t^, slightest ti^re 
landlord of ^ «^^1 could be found. The 
uoht - *^« hotel, Mr. Gordon, had 
" *t lir^ thrre was no cause for 
uliTi\M*»l,as thechill might have run 
.cO l^e rtrect, thinking to meet her 
s,aopled fathtr. tind getting bewildered, 
had been un il.iM to find her way back to 
the house. But as the hours slipped 
away, and a systematic search of every 
street in the city was made, and nothing 
■wa.=? heard of her, he c»me the conclusion 
that she had go* down to the wharf in her 
•wand* rings and, in some way, Irtllcn into 
the water «nd got drowned. It was not 
very probable that a child like that had 
been abducted In u city wliere scores r>f 
chiltlrea swarmed in the street^! unmo- 
le3i<d ev«ry hour inthe<l(*y. A foundling, 
too, lik'i thi3, coming from 4in Eastern 
country town »«» far away, pcrf. ctly un- 
known to a single soul in the city— why, 
it was the height of ab^iudity to fancy 
she had been aJj<lucteii, and so he told the 
halt diiitract'-d Andersons, IL )ugh his 
hypothesis was not particularly comfort- 
ing, and poor Myra Anderson only grew 
whiter and more scare-looking when he 
broached ir. 

" Violit is accustomed to the water, and 
I hardly think she would venture where 
there was dangt-r." Mr. Anderson said, 
thouglitfuliy ; " slill it is not impossible 
but •?iie might have attempt* d crossing 
the pi ink U> the steamer, and fallen uli, 
someway." 

" But po'fne one would have seen her, 
it's likely," ijnterpf>sed Itilph, *'and rescued 
her. / dot't Ifolieve she went near the 
water— evt xything is always laid to the 
water !" 

" You li'ie it, I reckon, tuylaJ," Gonlon 
said, sn il'ng at his eSirnestness. "You 
shonld i>lt4';/ the sea, instead of the 
prairie." 

" 1 ir .tr;Bd to som« day, sir," was the 
(juirk reply, a »uddeH glow lighting his 
face. 

f' jTf>ugh all the ^rrief and alarm of the 
pr« >E'nt, a wiU 'ear ior the future stru«.k 
a suiden, deathly chdl to Mrs. An- 
'jerson's heart. It wo\iM kill her to have 
llalph go to sea 1 But he would forget 
and outgrow this love for the sea when 
he was once fairly away from it, she com- 
forted herself by saying. 

"Perhaps we had better go down to the 
■shore," Mr. Anderson said, " thou:.;h I 
have little idea that it wid be ot any 
avail." 

At that moment Ned Bradlee opened 
the door and looked in. 

" Any ne\v,s ?" askeil 
iously. 

" W.ill, no. not ra'ally," he replied, 
slowly. " ( )ne of them fresh- water sailor 
chaps says he see a girl run down the 
whur! lo vtie ride of the ' Caspian , — that's 
the e ^me of the boat we come in— quite 
e.»rly this mornin'. But he didn't notice 
whether she went back, or not, and in 
fact he didn't seem to notice much of any- 
thing, and I don't b'lievc he could tell 
whether she was two year old or twenty- 
rive, /dont." 

*' But why didn't you go on board the 
boat? Maybe she is there," interposed 
Ralph. 

"Didn't I? Though I kuowed afore- 
hand that a bright little critter like her 
wouldn't be likeiy to slay there all this 
time. L^rd ! wt uldn't she made 'em walk 
back with htr double (luick ?" 
" But what did they say?" asked Gordon. 
"O, they didn't km »wnothin', of course! 
There wasn't anjlx.dy there only fmr cr 
five nigi»er gals, and of all the stupid cat- 
tle / ever see, they was the beat. I'm 
afraid I might ha' sworn at them if I'd 
staid there twi> minutes longer —I couldn't 
say for certain. I didn't "as it wis," he 
added thou :htf ally. 

" I think we had better go down there," 
Mr. Anderson said, putting on his hat. 

" It won't di> any gor.d, Ben, but how- 
ever. I don't blame ytm for wantin' to go," 
BraUee replied. "Poor little HuTniiu' 
Bird :" and he turned suddenly and walked 
away to the window, and stoixl a moment 
looking out iijto the bu^y, hurrying street, 
but seeing absolutely nothing — not even 
the great blocks of buiulings, or the blue 
sky. or the s<:)ft spring sunshine. 

Slowly and wearily the 1 >ng afternoon 
hours dragged on to Myra Anderioa. 
The first exeitemt ut of wonder and ahrm 
had given pi i- c to dread '"ul sinking, dread 
and fear People came and went, but she 
sat by the window, gu/ing steadily into 
the street, and starting nervously at every 
sudden bustle or siir the saw, fancying it 
WAS some or.c cnning to bring home a lit- 
tle liivip. drenchid f«)rm. the brigtit color 
all waslievl out of the dear little f.ice and 
the soft lips ihiit had wakened her only 
that, morning with kisses. Only that 
morningi J?he s;iid it over drearily toher- 
s*'ir, like one talking in his sleep. Could 
it b« Ihit all these long, drewlful hours 
wi. re only one day ? H>>w vaxxiy and mtiny 
the we- ks she could rememter that had 
not stomed one-half as long ! Sometimes 
some .ne, thinking to comfort or rouse 
her, sucge^'.id lb it "it was not as though 
it was her own child," and perhap-! it was 
ni 't ; but remembering the iiitle gfave in 
the green suadow of the Plymouth hills, 
and the little face that failed so early fr.-m 
earth, she said soberly that "there could 
b? noditVerenee— she lv)«f by experience." 
But she did not remenib'/r that il was that 
sopftned the fir-t sorrow, and m-.dt» it, 
kx kirg kick through the sanctifying vista 
of years, seem so much loss bitter than 
this. Viola was '•><; her baby Got* had 
taken, and she was safe. This was the se- 
cret -the secret that makes a livins: sor- 
row S4> mtich harder to bt ar than a dead 
onr, always. Ue had done it 

One. two, three diys, and so np to a 
week, an i the mystery that shrouded the 
ofadils ilis-jppearanoi! remained still nn- 
solvcil. The shi>re8 of the river h.<ul been 
dracgeu.bu: n.'thiug had been discovered. 
The police haJ taken the usual measures, 



but all th«ir cearch had been utterly and 
entirely fruitless. No such child had been 
seen, either alone or in company, on any 
train, boat, or vessel leaving Detroit that 
morning. She seemed to have disappeared 
as completely as if the eartti had opened 
and swallowed her up, as in their amaze- 
ment the Andersons almost believed It 
had. 

"We cannot wait here much longer, 
Myra," Mr. Anderson said, uneasily, tc his 
wife; " these hotel bills run up terribly, 
and you know we've got barely enough 
money now to buy the farm Tom has bar> 
gained for. I never did get in debt, and 
I don't like to begin by doing so in a 
strange place.'; 

. ' B'lt, Ben, it gc^ems terrible to go on 
without kr.j^^jjg gomethiug about her," 
^^e «'--.o, sadly. 

/ Wish we never had started.," inter- 
tilled ilalph, impetUo'isly, " I am sure 1 
shall never like oat there, and I don't 
want to go now she isn't to be with us," 
the TrauK, bojish face gro\ning grave and 
troubled. 

" It's my opinion th*.t 't*3 uo use a-wait- 
in' here, it's i uard thing to say, neigh- 
bors, 'out I don't believe she's anywhere, 
aim, now," Bradlee said, his jovial face 
graver than it ever was before. " Still, if 
you .say so. why we'll wait, if it's all 
summer. I wouldn't vally ever}' dollar I 
have got— which aii't many, to be swr" — 
goin' into Gordon's poi^ket. If only there 
was the uligbt^s*. c'aance of her comin' 
back, or oar findln' out anything about 
her, poor little Ilummin' Bird :" 

There was two or three days more of 
dreary waiting and suspense, and then 
the journey was resumed, Mr. Gordon 
promising to inform tiiem ipimedlately if 
anythin^r whTitever concerning the lost 
child ran^e to light 

The " beautiful West," of which Tom 
Arnold had written iu such glowing terms 
to his sister, seemed now to that sister 
like some dreadful igwu fittuun, growing 
wilder and more fitful as they shot away 
from the city where it still set^med to her 
that the bright little face, whieh had crept 
so into her heart, was yet somewhere hid- 
den Ah, how desolate and gloomy Uvjk- 
ed the half-broken forest farms, scattered 
here and there along the way ' What cu- 
rious, stiuiliddooking huts, ^Ith tour 
saiall panes of glass doing duty for win- 
dows, and never a shingle or clapboard, 
or bit of white paint anywhere about 
them. And how solemn and lonrly 
lo<)ked (he great shadowy forests, in their 
dead, unbroken level; so little like the 
hills of the East, where the leaves 



airy 

toyed with the clouds, and caught the 
sunshine in their green palms. But now 
and then there glimmered through the 
trees prett}' white villages, as they har- 
ried on. ai'd at last Chicago was reached, 
—Chicago, the Wicked, if all the news- 
papers say can be relied on. But I am 
not inclined to br;lleve all its traducers 
say of it. I remember some very pleasant 
things of it, and I believe there could be 
quite a respectable remnant found who 
have " not bowed the knee unto Baal," 
even in these degenerate days. 

Tom Arnold, a little older, a little stout- 
er, but still the old, genial, true-hearted 
Tom, grasped their hands the instant their 
feet touched the platform. 

" Oh, Ben !" grasping his hand, " and 
Ned Braalee, as I live! Well, if this isn't 
jolly ! And Myra, my dear girl," holding 



her in his strong arms and kissing her 
fondly, "and t'uisis your boy ?— this great 
fellow :" holding Ralph's arm and looking 
admiringly at him. " Aren't you delight- 
ed to see your worthy uncle, v.-hom, it is 
said, you are so fortunate as to resemble 
in certain fine traits of character ':'" he 
cried, with a laugh. " But where is the 
wonderful little exo'ic you wrote me such 
an extravagant account of, Myra?" he 
asked, looking round, and pausing to 
take breath. 

" She is lost, Tom," Mrs. Anderson an- 
swered, gravely, the smile fading from her 
lips. 

" Not dead !" he exclaimed, his face so- 
bering. 

" We do not know ;" and as they went 
into the station she told him the story (jf 
Viola's strange disappearance. 

" And that is why you are so far be- 
hind ? I have been here a week, waiting 
lor you, and yesterilay I wrote to find out 
if you had left .Massachusetts. I believe 
I was getting rather nervous. But this is 
an odd affair ! Dont you believe the child 
ran away on purpose? You say she 
didn't like the idea of coming?" 

" Ran away !— our Viola!" cried Ralph, 
indignantly. 

" 1 beg your pardon, my boy, but I hxtpe 
80, and 1 do not think it so very impr* bi- 
ble, either. It's not very likely the child 
is dead. She would have bjen f )und if 
she had been. I suppo.se you were quite 
attached to her V" he askt d, carelessly. 

" O, Tom, I loved her as if she had been 
my own !" Myra Anderson cried, catching 
her breath sharply. 

" Ah ! I'm very sorry, girlie," he said, 
gently, holding her hand in a firm, warm 
grasp. " But I am so glad to see you 
again that I can't look very sorry, I am 
afraid. Why, it's twelve years ; do you 
know it? Havel changed very much? 
Don't be afraid of hurting mv vanity, but 
tell me if 1 look olier and dill'erent from 
what you exptcted." 

" No, you have not changed as much as 
I feared. O, Tom, I could never h.ave 
come, it was so hard at the last, if you 
had not been here." 

" You're the best sister in the world, 
Myra, and we will be as happy as clams — 
see, I've not forgotten my native 
similes!— and we will never be separated 
again while Go^l lets us live, my girl," 
he SJiid. earnestly. 

The new home in the West ! How can 
I make you who are natives understand 
the aliwu's heart? IL>w can I make you 
realize the faint hom-^sickness that iciLi 
c^rae, tven amid the fairest scenes and in 
the most attractive land? The new may 
be a score ot times more lovely, and you 
may know that it is much the best for 
your interest", but it lacks that indefina- 
ble nomething which the old held, and it 
will lack It forevcrmore ! You may fancy 
you have outgrown and forgotten it. per- 
kaps ; but sometime it will start suddenly 
to life, and mock your fancied dream of 
cuntcnt with its old, vanished sweetness, 
and the bleakest and mo5t common-place 
SI) >t, seen througli the lens of years and 
love, will be touched with an indescribable 
glory. It is the old clinging love for one's 
native land whieh all feel more or leas. 

The pleasant rolling prairies of the new 
farm CMntr'i3t<:d sharply with the little 
wooded, sand girdled homestead in the 
East, It was a s-ore of limes more fertile, 
and twice a score of times more profit- 1 
able, but, alas ! the S'^a never came i 
tumbling to its etlge, nor never a ledge of i 
rrck and pine lift(^l Us dun green ?'immit 
against the bine of its bending skies. But ' 
it wa^ very plea.«anl, nevertheless, and the , 
Andersons kne%v they had gaint d by com- ' 
inf , and resolved to 'be content — all but ! 
Ralph : he grew more and more restless ' 



all the long summer through, and longed 
more and more for the sea as the days of 
absence increased, and not even the 
charms of his beautiful young cousin 
ould make him forget it for a day. 

Tom Arnold had i^ideed grown rich in 
the West, ^g owned a large stock ftitni, 
^^T- he lived less than two miles out of 
Rockford, in a beautiful cottage-mansion, 
bulll on a fine elevation overlooking the 
pleasant waters of Rook river aha the 
pretty, picturesque city. Long, sloping 
offsets ot velvety sward swept In slow 
curves to the river and the road. A few 
trees and shrubs carefully disposed, and a 
narrow line of gay-colored flowers edging 
the entire length of thefl.rst offset, gave an 
air of eleganxr Und brightness to the 
whole. Altogether, it was as lovely a 
place as you could aak for, and Tom was 
not to blame ior feeling just the least bit in 
the world proud of it. But his special 
pride was his daughter Blanche. »top a 
moment while 1 des'^ribc her to you as she 
wafl the f-rst summer that we made her ac- 
quaintance. 

You are to remember that she U but 
fourteen— still a child, but easy and grace- 
ful as a woman. Slender, tall and fair 
might describe her, but I wish to be a lit- 
tle more explicit. First, then, she had 
rare, clear, grey e,ye9i full of shifting lights 
and !«h«do\Vs, fringed with heavy dark 
'oiown lashes, which had a trick ot droop 
ing suddenly and veiling the light or 
shadows in her eyes. Her brown hair, 
soft and fain»ly waved, fell over her shoul- 
ders in lu.xurious abundance, and set off 
the clear, creamy whitene'S of her Com- 
plexion, pbarmingly. Sometimes exercise 
r;i- excitement brought a faint tinge of pale 
rose »to her cheek, but ordinarily the 
vivid crimson in her lips was the only 
color in her face. 

Tom Arnold's assertion that she " man- 
aged both the house and himself " was 
strictly correct. Indeed, it would be very 
hard to live in the ho«fle with Miss Blanche 
and not be managed by her. The girl was 
a born diplomat, and it seemed rather a 
mistake that she had not been bora to 
royalty, where her talents might have 
made her famous. Yet she never gave 
loud orders, or issued any particular com- 
mands, or fieemed to rule, but everybody 
a'oout the house, from its master (by cour- 
tesy) down to Billy Doane, the chore boy, 
knew that she did. 

I think there are some persons, both 
men and women, who have the power oi 
casting a glamour over the eyes of others, 
and then of leading them whithersoever 
they will, without any apparent effort. 
Beauty is a powerful ally, but it is not an 
indispensable one. There is a subtle 
power of fascination more mighty than 
the handsomest face, but when both are 
united in the same person, especially if it 
happens to be a woman, the spell is com- 
plete. I say " especially a woman," be- 
cause everybody knows the "superior" 
weakness of men, and the ease with which 
a btautitul or polite woman cau hoodwink 
them, when she really sets herself to the 
task. 

All through the summer and autumn 
the Andersons entertained faint hopes ot 
hearing in sf)me way from their lost V'iola. 
The little hair trunk, studded with brass 
nails, with the solitary M. on the lid, was 
put carefully away up stairs, and more 
than once had Myra Anderson knelt down 
before it, and lifted the dainty little 
dresses— so like the bright little creature 
who had worn them — and pres.-:ed the 
senseless things to her heart and her lip?, 
in a wild passion of sobs and tears. 

But the soft haze of autumn faded from 
the faintly-rounded hills and the silvery 
river, and winter came — cold, cruel and 
stern — and no word from Gordon had yet 
come. There had, then, nothing ever 
been heard from her, or he would have 
written, and the spark of hope burned 
lower and lower as the days went by, and 
they came after a while to speak of her in 
the tender, awed way we speak of the 
dead. 

And so the days came and went ; and 
by-and by brightened and lengthened, and 
the river slipped of its silver chain, and 
the prairies grew faintly green in the sun- 
shine, and April, flushing and weeping, 
came shyly over the threshold of Time. 



CHAPTKU V. 
It was ptrhaps the middle of April 
when Tom Arnold stopped at his sister's 
one night on his way home from a little 
trip he had been making south to buy 
cattle. 

" Rather an odd thing happened to-day 
— or rather I should say, yesterday," he 
said, drawing a letter fn.m .his pocket. " I 
expect you would call it a special Provi- 
dence, Ben, but I prefer to wait till I know 
what it's about before / decide. I am not 
a very religious man, but I have a little 
theory of my own that forbids the ide* 
of saddling all the miseries of mankind 
on " Providence." When anything comes 
along that's unmistakably good, I am 
willing to admit that Ue had a hand in it, 
but I don't hardly bslieve He ordains evil. 
But here is the letter," tossing a creased, 
blotted, and sadly soiled envelop on the 
table. 

Mr. Andersoon took it up and carried it 
to the west window w'nere the sunset 
light could fall on it— his eyes were getting 
to be a little treacherous. The original 
postmark was altogether indistinguish- 
able from being crossed and recrossed 
with other post marks, and the envelop 
was fretted and worn on the edges. 

"I don't know how I happened to go into 
the Uock Island post-oflice, unless 'twas 

because H always has glorious cigars 

with which to regale his friends, of whom 
I have the happines to bs one," Arnold 
continued, as Ben Anderson drew the 
letter from the envelop. " Well, what 
should be the first thing my eyes foil on 
but yaur name heading a list ot advertised 
letters, I asked H. for the letter im- 
mediately, and he gave it to me very glad- 
ly, saying that it had been to the Dead 
Letter ofllce and been sent back again; 
had been sent down to Rockdale and re- 
turned ; and he had an impression it had 
been to Ri)ckford, but he might be mistaken 
Ue thought it muit be nearly a year since 
it first came there. The last time it came 
back he put it in a drawer, and hadn't 
th<.^ught of it since, and the " List " which 
it headed was an old one, which he had 
neglected to takedown." 

"Myra," broke in Beii Andc rson, sharply, 
" come here." 

She came and took the letter from his 
hand, glanced at it, and gave a little 
quick cry. 

" O Ben— it is from Gordon !" and she 
sank into a chair, white and trembling, the 
letter falling from her nerveless fingers. 

Ralph sprang forward and caught it be- 
fore it scarcely toucbed the floor. 

'• R ad it," she said, with an eager ges- 
ture, but he had begun almost before she 
spoke. 

"Mb A>fDEB.-">N'— Avr 'r/ 

I feei a.< if 1 mnn write a word to congratulate 
yon on the safety of the little gtrl who:»« disap- 
pcaraEce caused ns jiU so much un- 
easise^:! a&d ^larm, and joa so nucii 



pain. She came back the iltrd day after 
your departure, and 1 put h«r on board the 
train for Mlchijran City the n^.xt mornltig; and I 
trust «he reach(?d you in eafety several days ago. 
I desired to write tor yoi. to cone back for her, 
but i»he declared che wouldn't wat. By the way, 
I'll truet her to make herw«y througli the world. 
She Is tfeo ni9?t indomitable little thing I ever 
(laW— ft little compressed tornado. There is a 
mvetery about the way «he was apliited olT, and ae 
to' where che hat been kept all this lime, and mote 
than all. the reR»on of th»i at>dnctioo. I th nk she 
has been drtigfred heavily, for there are dark lint-e 
under the rtasliing eyes wtilch it is not natural to 
see In a child She <»3enl*, too, td think she has 
bi^^naway but aday or tivo. Butshe haa doubt- 
less told you yon all about it, as veil as the way 
she escaped and found her way bick here, and so 
1 will only add that it gi.es me mora satisfaction 
than I can tell, this happj solution of your trouble. 
" Very truly and cincerely yours, 

"Cha«, Oobdon." 

" And this was a year ago— O my poor 
darling !" Mrs. Anderson cried, sharply 
" Who could be cruel enough to wish to 
harm her? Ben, vfhat shall we do— Is 
there no way to find out anything about 
herf' 

" If this Gordon ^as as careless about 
the child as he was fibout the direction of 
his letter, she might have been forwarded 
to New Zealand !" e tclaimed Arnold, im- 
patiently. 

" But'Viola knew where we were com- 
ing, and she would tell that, herself Mrs. 
A"der^t?n naid, quickly. 

" Yes, I suppose so. But I don't see 
what you are going to do at this laie day. 
It's my opinion that somebody has an in- 
terest in the child, and I think you had 
better let the whole thing drop." 

"OTom! And never know vhether 
she is living or deid?" Mrs. Anderson 
crieu, in a distressed voice. 

"Myra, you had oaght to open an or- 
phan's asylum," he rjplicd,laughing. "But 
1 must be off. Blanche expected ue last 
night I'm sorry about this thing, si.s, but 
I wouldn't worry abDut it, it will all come 
out right, I guess. Maybe your foundling 
has gone back t<T Prince to look ap her 
pedigree— Who knovrs?" and witha pleas- 
ant laugh he shut the door and sprang 
into his wagon, and giving the two beau- 
tiful "grey's" a loose rein, was soon out of 
sight 

'A little silence followed his departure, 
Mrs. Anderson nervously rolling and un- 
rolling the hem of her apron, and glanc- 
ing covertly at Ralph, who was moving 
restlessly about; Presently he came up to 
his father, who was sitting with his chin 
buried in his hand, «.nd his eyes !ixed on 
the floor. 

" Father, aren't you going to look her 
up?" he broke out, impetuously. "Be- 
cause it's a year ago, and somebody has a 
spite against her, is that any reason why 
we shouldn't love her just as well, and try 
to find her ? Maybe she is in some alms- 
house somewhere, and cannot get to us. 
Let ?/u' go, father, I'm big enough to go 
alone, now. I won't give up till I find her 
if she is in the United States." 

Ralph's hurried speech was interrupted 
by the entrance of Ned Bradlee, who had 
bought a quarter s<;ction ot government 
land a mile or so uji the river, erected a 
log house on it, and lived, as he expressed 
it, in the " tallest kind of clover." 

"Makin' a Fourth o' July oration. 
Squire?" he cried out; "cos if you are, I 
want you to pile on something pretty^ 
steep about this 'great and glorious West,^ 
with its stupendoui pasters and wavin' 
grain, and all that fort o' thing. I heerd a 
fellow du it down in Dixon last Indepen- 
dence, and I ttll ytu, it wiis a leetle the 
.subliinest thing i" ever heerd. I had to 
stuff my hankerchief into my mouth to 
keep from shouting glory right straight 
along. 'Twas most etiual to the way I 
heerd a fellow sprciul himself up to Bos- 
Um once, 'bout the Pilgrims."' 

" We have had a letter from Gordon 
that has been a year on the way, and he 
says that V'iola came back three days after 
we left, and he sen'; her right on after us 
the next morning," Ralph said, excitetUy, 
interrupting him. 

" Sho ! you don't say so ! Well, if that 
ain't curis— well, I declare !" 

" And Uncle Tom thinks it's no use 
doing anything about it, just because it's a 
year ago ! Supp<ise 'lis a year- who 
cares? I guess if it was Blanche, he 
wouldn't mind if it had been half a dozen 
years!" he cried, v^ith rising color. 

" Softly ! You'r .' full of fire as a keg of 
gunpowder. Let's hear the story, neigh 
bor," turning to Anderson. 

" Well, It's the ;3i08t onlikely thing to 
happen to common folks /ever heard," he 
said, thoughtfully, when the letter had 
been read, and v-arious comments and 
speculations had been made on it. "It's 
almost equal to ' Lonzo and Melisa ' — I 
don't spose you ever read that, Ben ? It 
isn't just your style, I'll allow, but it's 
powerful interestin'; beats Pilgrim's 
Progress ten to one, and I've an idea it's 
jest about as true. But that's neither here 
nor there, /say go after the gal, and if 
you want any help, there's a quarter sec- 
tian of prairie in Winnebago county that 
would jump at the chance to lay itself out 
in the cause, and here's my hand on it, 
neighbor — not a particularly handsome 
one, perhaps, but [ know it's honest." 

" And so do I, my old friend," Mr. An- 
derson said, smiling faintly; "but it is 
blind working now. If I had got the let- 
ter direct, the ra Iroad men could have 
given me something to go by; but it has 
been too long to hope for that now. 
There's always been a mystery hanging 
about the child «nee her mother died, 
leavin.g her name, even, in doubt." 

"Oh, that reminds me," inter- 
rupted Bradlee, "who do you guess 
I see down in the city to- 
day ? But of cou rse you can't guess, and 
mebby you've forgot al' about him. But I 
knew him the mi ante I see him. You re- 
member that tall, stylish lookin' chap wh(T 
come down from Plymouth, and who was 
in tbe Ix Brnn, and " — 

" What, DeVries ?" exclaimed An- 
dersim. 

" Yes, that is tile name. I couldn't re- 
mem'oer, though 1 knew it liad a sort of 
onrighteous souc.d to it," he said, laugh- 
ing." 

" But how came he here?" asked An- 
derson. 

" Well, I don't remember as I asked him. 
'I believe, though, he said somethin' 
about bavin' been here nigh about two 
year. He seemed to feel bad enough 
when I told him about Ilummin' Bird. 
He said he remembered what a pretty 
little thing she was, and he put his hand 
up to his eyes, an' I wouldn't ha' believed 
he would been sc cut up. He's a pretty 
nice sort of a feller, I reckon." 

"I wonder I have never happened to 
see him ; but the:i I am not in town much. 
I'll ask Arnold alwut him; he will know," 
Mr. Andersfm replied. 

Ralph sat silent as they talked, but 
there came back to him the memory of 
that morning on Plymouth beach, and the 
little trunk under the dripping kelp, and 
the kneeling figure bending over it, and a 
faint dislike for this nice Mr. DeVries 
gr<^w up vaguely in hi-; heart. 

The next morning Tom Arnold brought 
Blanche down to spend the day. She was 
growing very griceful and lady-like, and 



Ralph felt a faint sense of awkwardness 
in her pfesence, and was Uncomfortably 
conscious of blushing when she looked at 
or spoke to him. She did not seem to no- 
tice it, however, but came and sat by him, 
and told him about her flowers and her 
pony, and the beautiful garden sho was 
going to have if— well, if he would come 
up and help her a little. To be sure they 
had a gardener, but she wanted some one 
else. And then she jdst lifted the heavy 
lashes, and flashed a shy, trembling little 
glance into his face that was full of allur- 
ing appeal. 

" I'd be so glad to come, Blanche, if 
vou would let me," he said, eagerly, " and 
if you could put up with my awkward- 
ness." 

" Tou awkward, cousin Ralph !" lifting 
her eyes In beautiful surprise to his face. 

A whole volume could not liave better 
expressed her admiration and confidence, 
or made a more vivid impression upon his 
boyish heart. 

" Blanche," called her father, " you visit 
Althea Montford. Who is this Dc Vries 
that stops there ?" 

" Why, he is Mr. Alfred De Vries, Mr. 
Montford's business agent, private secre- 
tary, and confidential friend. I thought 
you knew." 

" Perhaps I did, but I had forgotten. 
It's two years, isn't it, since the Mont- 
fords came here ?' 

" Yes, two years this spring, papa." 

This brought Viola to Ralph's mind, 
and he said : 

" Father has concluded to go in search 
of some traces of our little Viola. I sup- 
pose uncle Tom told you about the let- 
ter V" 

" Yes, I think he mentioned something 
about it. Miscarried, didn't it? I won- 
der why you trouble yourselves so much 
about that strange child, all of you. Of 
course it was splendid in you rescuing her 
mother and herself. I don't know as / 
would mind being shipwrecked if I was 
sure some nice, brave, handsome young 
fellow would rescue me just at the right 
moment." 

When she first began Ralph felt half 
vexed at her careless tone, but the compli- 
ment, spoken and implied, mollified him 
immediately. And even while he was 
speaking of Viola, he was wondering if 
Blanche thought /t« was brave and hand- 
some, and vaguely wishing she might fall 
into some little peril from which he could 

" You see, Blanche," he said, " she was 
so alone in the world, so utterly friend- 
less, that we couldn't help caring for her, 
and loving her. You know 1 had a little 
sister once, and I think we all loved her 
more for that reason. I know mother 

dill-" . -.c , 

" But she wasn't your sister. ^ Maybe 

she was some miserable convict's child ; 
there seemed such a mystery about her 
name, and her father. People -honest 
people— are never ashamed of their 
names. There must have been something 
wrong about them, and father says, 
though he's sorry because auntie feels so 
bad about it, he believes it is just as well 
if somebody else hcut looked out for her." 
" I don't believe she was to blame, any 
way," Ralph said, stoutly, " and I'd give 
a dozen farms like this, if I had them, to 
find her again." 

"What a splendid Don Quixote you 
would make, to go out to the defense of 
distressed damsels!" she cried, with a lit- 
tle rippling laugh. And then she clasped 
her pretty white htinds about his arm, 
i and tossed the rippling hair back from 
her white shoulders, and looked up in his 
face with a little quick, admiring glance, 
that was altogether irresistible to poor, 
unsophisticated Ralph. 

The farm work waited as a week went 
by — waited more patiently than Myra 
Anderson or Ralph— and still no word 
came from Ben Anderson as to the suc- 
cess of his search. Every night Ralph 
went to the ollice, but nothing came to 
them. Ned Bradlee ran down every even- 
ing, to " stretch his legs," he said, not 
quite willing to own how nervously anx- 
ious he was to hear if there was any news 
from Ben,— or rather, from the lost girl. 
But all waiting comes to an end at last, 
and the tenth day from that of his de- 
parture, Ben Anderson walked into his 
house as he had went— aio/i«. His wife 
saw the grave look in h is face, and her 
heart sank like lead. Unreasonable as it 
was, she had cherished a strong hope 
that he would find the child, and that 
very day she had taken the pretty dress- 
es, and dainty rulHed skirts from their 
resting-place in the hair trunk, and spread 
them out where the sunshine and soft 
wind could touch them, wondering the 
while if she had grown much, and plan- 
ning how she could make them larger 
and longer. 

There was a little moment of suspense 
—a little dreading to ask on their part, 
and a little dreading to tell on his; then 
he said, in a low, husky tone : 

" Our little girl is dead, Myra, we will 
never worry about her any more." 

Then in the faint light of the soft May 
gloaming, with slantwise beams from the 
young moon in the west, falling across the 
floor till it touched the smouldering coals 
on the hearth, Ben Anderson told the 
story of his ten days' search. 

First he had gone to Detroit to see Gor- 
don ; but Gordon did not keep the house 
now, and had moved out of the city, and 
no one seemed to know just where, tbough 
it was somewhere near Lake Huron. After 
two days of delay and inquiry, he found 
out that it was Saginaw. It was not ac 
cessihle by rail, so he went up the lake in 
a boat, and reached it in that way. Of 
Gordon he learned the particulars of 
Viola's return. It was just at dusk, and 
the boarders and guests were seated at the 
supper table, when a little figure dashed 
through the door, and stopping, panting 
and breathless, before the table, ran her 
eyes up acrtl down the long line of faces. 
"It is Anderson's lost girl !'' was the 
{simultaneous exclamation Irom a score of 
lips. 

" Where is he? I want my father An- 
derson!" she cried, bursting into passionate 
weeping. 

He led her to the parlor, and she grew 
suddenly quiet and listened, with great 



was no windows, only two little panes of 
glass up high like a cellar. She thought 
she cried and screamed, but she couldn't 
really remember, she grew so sleepy, and 
she had been very sleepy ever since, till 
that night. Then she had opened her 
eyes and looked about and there was no- 
body in sig'nt. She thought if only she 
could get away before any one came ! She 
sprang off the bed and ran to the door 
but she could not reach the latch. She 
moved up a block of wood, and by stand- 
ing tiptoe unlatched the door, and without 
waiting an instant she darted out and ran 
as fast as her feet would carry htr. 
She remembered the name of the house, 
and after coming by a good many streets 
she asked a lady, who pointed out the 
house, which was just in sight, and so she 
had come to it. 

Mr. Gordon had blamed himself very 
much for letting her go as he had. But 
he had thought she would come through 
safely, she seemed so bright and fearless, 
and independent. He had paid her fare 
out of his own pocket as far as Chicago, 
and given her money to pay it the rest of 
the way. lie had also given her in charge 
of the conductor, and then not quite sat- 
isfied had written that letter, and though 
everything Was all right and straight. 

Then, taking Gordon with him, he 
had returned to Detroit to find the con- 
ductor But he had been dead six months. 
Then he had stopped all along the route 
until at last he reached Michigan City, the 
then terminus of the road. It was a 
miserable, straggling little place, its long 
pier laid with railroad track, running far 
down from the " City " into the waters of 
the hike. The boat that was to take them 
across was nowhere in sight, and he went 
back to the hotel where they had taken 
supper a year ago when they came on. 
He related his errand to the landlord, and 
someway chanced to mention the child's 
name. 

" Viola!" exclaimed a gentleman, look- 
ing up suddenly from his paper ; " -why. 
Reeves, that is the name on the little 
wooden cross old Brierly put up over the 
child that died at his place last summer. 
I noticed it because the name was odd and 
rather pretty," 

Well, the result of it was he did not 
take the boat, but went out to see this 
iirierly, who lived about two miles away. 
He said he had found the child in the 
street, crying and bewildered, just after 
the boat had left one night. He took her 
home with him, where she was sick a 
good while and "crazy as a bear." She 



kept saying her name was " Viola, and 



solemn eyes, while he told her that her 



friends had gone on, after waiting for her 
a long time, and thinking she was dead. 
At first she declared that she woulJ go 
"right cff;" but after explaining to her 
that she could not go till morning, she sat 
down content. But when he propose<i 
writing to me to return for her, she grew 
wild again, and they were glad to pacify 
her by promising her she should go in the 
first train west 

Her account of her absence was vague 
and confused. Somebody, Ehe didn't seem 
to know who, had promised to tell her 
something she wanted to know if .-he 
would go to walk with him. They hailn't 
gone very far when they came to a dark, 
dirty street, and somebody opened a door 
and caught her away from the side of her 
fiiend into a damp, cold place, where there 



nothing else," and so when she died he 
cut that name on a bit of wood, and put 
it up so as to show her friends if they 
ever came. 

" But it may have been some other 
Viola," said Ralph, unwilling to believe 
that the bright, spirited little creature 
could die, as perhaps some other Viola had 
done. 

" I think there is no doubt about it what- 
ever. This Brierly is an old, eccentric, 
miserly fellow, who lives quite alone in a 
little hut near the lake, but, thotigh he 
bears a rather bad name in the neighbor- 
hood, I think he did as well as he could by 
her, and I could forgive him a great deal 
for that," Mr. Anderson said, in a faltering 
voice. 

" If only we hul waited a little longer, 
Ben." 

" Yes, but we did not know. For some 
rea8«m God saw fit to take her from us in 
this fad way, but He knows best, wife, 
and all His ways are right" 

And so the thought of a simple cross 
bearing the dear name, by the far-away, 
lonely lake shf)re, fell into their hearts a 
sad, and tender, and sacred memory, to be 
cherished and talked off, and remembered 
forever. But now ii new trouble— or 
rather an old trouble renewed— came to 
haunt Myra Anderson's heart. Ralph de- 
claretl his resolution to go to sea. This 
tame, monotonous farmer's life, fretted 
him more and more every day and week. 
All through the summer he dwelt upon it, 
and not even the graceful fascinations of 
his beautiful cousin could drive it away. 

" Let the boy go," Tom Arnold said ; 
" one voyage will cure him. It's as natu- 
ral for a'Massachusttts boy to want to go 
to sea as it is to take to the girls. I don't 
believe in trying to force a boy to stay at 
home if his heart is set on going." 
" But father— Tom," she faltered. 
"Yes. Myra, but because his ship went 
down, it's no sign lUlph's will. You and 
I can never forget that ; it weaned me 
from the sea— I never want to look on its 
treacherous face again !" he stopped ab- 
ruptly and leaned over and drew his sis- 
ter's face to his bosom and kissed it. 

" O Tom, I cannot let him go !" she 
moaned. 

" But he "ioUl, Myra ; you may depend 
on that. The lad has got a vfIII of his 
own, maybe you know.' 

Ralph was seventeen in October. He 
had worked faithfully all the sumaier,but 
when the harvest was all gathered, he 
said, firmly : 

" I am going to sea in the spring, father. 
I want you and mother to consent I want 
to go away man-fashion, but one thing, I 
shall go. I am sick of this prosy life, — 
why ! sometimes I long so for the spray 
breaking over the rocks, for the swash of 
the waves, the roar and tumble of the 
surf, and the scent of the salt breeze com 
ing up from the strong lungs of old ocean, 
that it is like a sharp pain, and I cannot 
help crying out, and catching my breath 
as if I was falling from some dizzy 
height!" 

" I shall never consent to your going 
while you arc under me," Ben Anderson 
said, with iron determination. 

" Then I shall go without your consent 
I will go!" was the low, resolute answer, 
the frank ly^yish face growing white, and 
firm, and set. 

" Silence ! ' commanded Ander8on,stcrn- 
ly. " How dare you talk so to me, bov ?" 
"I only said the truth, father. You 
always brought me up to speak the truth, 
and to avoid hypocrisy and deceit. I'd 
scorn to go away unbeknown to you, and 
make believe I didn't mean to go, for I 
do ; and I tell you so openly and plainly 
—I shall go if Heaven spares my life !" 

" You shall not !" Ben Anderson's face 
was alight with sadden fire, and there was 
a hard ring in his usually quiet voice. 

" Wo, will wait and see," Ralph answer- 
ed, unflinchingly. 

The winter slipped away and the mat- 
ter was not again referred to between 
thenL Rilph was apparently contented 
and happy, joining with eager zest in all 
the winter sports gotten up by the young 
people, entering with his characteristic 
impetuousnesa into botli work and play, 
and his father congratulated himself on 
having conquered the rebellious spirit of 
the boy. " There is nothing like unyield- 
ing firmness in dealing with one of these 
pas.sionate natures," he said, with a feeling 
of intense selt-satisfaction. 

It never occurred to Ben Anderson that 
the boy had his own stubborn will. His 



law of a child. The natural instincts and 
intuition were to be cnuhed out, if they 
run counter to the judgment and wishes 
of the parent. Years and experience fit- 
ted him to judge what was best and most 
proper for the child, and he considered it 
his solemn duty, assigned him by Heaven, 
to thus bend and control the future 
life of the child by deciding for 
him. With his rigid idea of "responsi- 
bility," it will be readily seen that Ralph's 
chance of choosing fo'r himself was ex- 
tremely small, unless his choice chanced 
to coincide with his father's plans. Ever 
since the morning, when, after a night of 
feverish anxiety, his mother had stolen 
softly out and whispered with a proud 
smile that " Myra had got a fine, great 
boy," had his resolution been taken as to 
what that boy should be if God spafed 
him to grow up. While he lived East it 
seemed sometimes as if he might be doom- 
ing the lad to a hard life, and he some- 
times feared necessity would force him to 
abadon his long-cherished plans, but now 
there was no neces-sity. It looked to him 
as if Providence had led him hither ex- 
pressly to open the way for the realization 
(.f his desires. And if sometimes a faint 
longing for the land of his nativity stirred 
vaguely in his heart, and old memories 
came, </a« thought comforted and strength- 
ened and encouraged him: Ralph could 
be a farmer without sacrificing his 
chances for comfort and independence, 
for the home in the West gave promise of 
at least that, if not of extravagant wealth. 

One gusty March night he came home 
from Cherry Valley, and though it was 
dark, and had been for a good half hour, 
there was no light anywhere visible m 
the house, and no sign of life about the 
place. A va.gue sort of presentiment 
seized him, and he hurried into the house. 
His wife sprang up hastily as if from 
sleep, and called hl=( name in a quick, 
startled voice. , . 

" Why Myra, why are you silting here 
in the dark ? I feared something had hap- 
pened," he said, in a relieved tone. 

She came forward through the dim, un- 
certain dusk, and laid her hand on her 
husband's arm. 

"O Ben— where has lie gone?" she 
cried, in a faint, dry whisper, that sounded 
strange and unearthly in the silence and 

gloom. „ 

He caught her arm in a grasp so fierce 
that a slight cry of pain escaped her. 

"Woman!" he cried, sternly, "it is your 
weakness that has encouraged him. You 
never enforced obedience. You always 
let him have his own heaM, and this is the 
result of your criminal folly." 

" O Ben ! I tried to do the best I could," 
she answered, meekly, never hinting by 
word or tone that there could be any 
possibility of Us having ever been to 

blame. 

He groped for a chair and sank ^into xt 
heavily. With a woman's natural in- 
stinct, Myra Andersrm put aside her own 
pain and tried to comfort him. She knew 
that his pride and temper were wounded, 
and so she said little, only dropping a 
word now and then with rare tact, mak- 
ing it always as favorable for her boy as 
she dared. 

No one said much to Ben Anderson 
about his boy ; they soon learned by the 
look in his face that it was not best. Only 
Tom Arnold told him that" in his opinion, 
no man had a right to set up his wishes 
against nature, and a man forced to take 
up a life against strong, repellant instincts, 
gener^y made a failure of it." 

The summer grew bright, as so many 
summers had dcme before, but something 
dimmed its splendor, and cist a faint 
shadow over all the earth and air. The 
days were so long, and the nights so lone- 
ly at the pleasant prairie home, that Myra 
A.nderson got nervous over their slow, 
monotonous length. But by-and-by let- 
ters came from Ralph— gay, bright little 
letters, full of buoyant life, ardent anti- 
cipations, and eager ambitions, with here 
and thcreliltle sudden veinsof deep tender- 
ness, that brought the blood to Myra An- 
derson's face with a quick, warm glow. 
But he said nothing. He listened ♦o the 
letters with a white, immovable face, still . 
very set and stern, whenever Ralph's 
name was mentioned. Very evidently 
he had not yet forgiven him. 

But one day a rumor was mentioned in 
the newspapers that there had been a ter- 
rible gale on the South Atlantic coast, and 
a list of the vessels supposed to be lost 
was given, and among them the " North 
Star "— At« ship. Ben Anderson heard it 
in the city. How he got home he never 
knew ; he had no recollection of a step 
of the way. He walked into the room 
where his wife sat reading over some 
letters, a faint smile on her lips. She hid 
them hastily in her dress, blushing softly. 
But he did not Ece ; he walked straight to 
the table and sat down, and buried his 
face in his hands. 

"God in heaven have mercy!" broke 
in a sudden, agonized cry from his lips, 
the great drops of sweat coming out on 
his forehead in glistening beads. 

" Ben ! O my husband — what — what?" 
she stopped, half paralyzed with alarm 
and dread as a terrible, wild thought came 
crashing through her brain. 

He pushed the crushed paper toward 
her— he had brought it all the way from 
Rockford crushed in his hand-^and then 
broke into a fierce, wild storm of pas- 
sionate weeping. Myra Anderson was 
nearly wild with terror. Never, even 
when their baby had died, had she seen 
her husband weep. It is something 
terrible when a strong man gives way to 
tears. A woman weeps softly and natu- 
rally, but when the depths of a strong, 
stem, rugged man's nature are broken up, 
it is like the fierce passion of the tornado, 
in its intensity. 

" £fe has puni-shed me for my hardness 
— I wouldn't forgive him," he said, after 
he had grown calmer and they had talked 
j it over. " O Ralph, my son I my son !" 
I Did you ever think what strange ways 
God takes to bretik down these stubborn 
wills of ours? How, when love and ten- 
derness tail. He sends the tempest's breath 
and the terrible swift sword, to do His 
will ; and then when our hearts are 
softened and broken, how tenderly he 
turns about and drops some great gift or 
joy into our lives? 

He did this into Ben Anderson's in this 
way: 

Four weeks after that terrible rumor, 
came a letter from Ralph ! There had 
been a terrible storm, he wrote, but thfy 
were in port at the time. Haifa score of 
ves'^fcls went down, among them the 
" North State," of New York.

That ol) mills per ton, even on the long

lower than the fa- ts will warrant, I have no

The Memory cf inlmals* 

That the fjiculty ot memory exists in 
ftniraals, there are many proofs. Bef8,ar- 
cordinu: to Huher, who had been fed in 
the autumn with honey at s particular 
window. TPturued In expectant crowd? to 
the same place in the sprinsr, when the 
window, closed through the winter by an 
outer shutter, was reopened. The recog- 
nition of ihelr own hives, out of a number 
of others, on returning from their excur- 
sions, would apocar to be ftrom a remem- 
brance of its fiitaation, rather than from 
any peculiarity about the Individual hive. 
Swallows, on returning from their winter- 
quarters in southern latitudes, resume 
possession of their former summer resi- 
dence. A horse will almost always be 
found to preserve *in acute recollection of 
any spot where h*- as received a fright, 
however many years may have since 
elapsed. 

We cann ^t just now call to mind where 
we met. lonif ago, with a very amusing 
example of memory in a horse — the 
charger of the commanding officer ot an 
Imiian regiment He was an exceedingly 
large and heavy man and the horse, hav 
ing a dislike to carry fuch a burden, ac- 
quired the habit of lying down on the 
ground whenever the colonel prepared to 
mount. This, as may be supposed, an 
nojed him, nnd, to avoid the ridicule of 
the soliliere, he parted wiih the animal, 
and procured another rot so fastidious as 
t a few stone 9 m"re or less We believe 
it wa« a year or two — certamly some con 
eiderable time— after that the colonel, vis 
ing another station, was invited to review 
the troops ihere. Htid a horse wa- nU'^ni i 
at his service, which, on his attempting to ] 
mount, immediately lay down in full 
view of the asseaibied re;iiiut-nt. It 
turned out to be the identic! di«mi^sed 
charger, wh'^ had at once recognized his 
former objectivmable owner 

A very n'er-stins aneciiote is related 
by Frederick Cuver, showing uot oniy 
great power of memory, but also strong 
attachment in an anmial g' neially sup- 
posed to be destitute of all goml quali- 
tie'<— the wolf. A g»*ntleman had trained 
up one from infiiucy nil he was as tracta- 
ble as a dog, would follow him ahout 
whenever allowed, and become quite low- 
spirited when he was absent. Beimr com 
pellefl to leave home, his master made him 
over to the Menngerie du Roi, where he 
at first dropcd and refused to eat, but 
gradually became more reconciled to the 
sit lation. After the lapse of a year and 
a halt his master returned home and paid 
him a visit The wolf knew his voice the 
moment he spoke, and flew to bim with 
every dem<mstratiou of- delight and atTtc- 
tion, planting his f- -rcfeet on his shoulders 
and licking his face. The same scene oc- 
curred after a secon-' separati<m of three 
years' duration, the wolf, as b'ifore, at once 
recoenizing his master's voice, and bound- 
ing toward hini as soon as set at liberty by 
the keeper. A final parting followed, and 
from that time the faithful creatnre never 
appeared to regain his former spirits and 
equable temper, occasionally indeed be 
traying ominous signs of the ferocity in- 
herent in his race. 

Storits of elephantine intelligence are 
numerous, but most of them too well 
known to repeat. One, however, record- 
ed by a traveler, in a paper eoutributed to 
a scientific journal, and which is vouched 
for from personal knowledge, is worth a 
brief notice. The author was on a jour- 
ney, and several elephants were engaged 
- to carry his tent and baggage. One of 
them, euphoniously named Fattra Mun 
gul, coming on the scent of a tiger, was 
seized with a panic and ran off into the 
woods, the driver saving himself by cling- 
ing to the branch of a tree and letting 
himself do-^n. All attempts to recover 
the animal were frui!lf.st<, and the party 
proceeded on their way, giving up all idea 
of seeing him again. Among a herd of wild 
elephants entrapped eighteen months af- 
terwards was found the runaway, who at 
first was as uproarious and unmanageable 
as the rest ; but uron an old hunter who 
knew him well riding up to him on a 
tame elephant, pulling him by the ear, 
and ordering him to lie down, he Immedi- 
ately obey -d the familiar word of coni- 
mind and became perfectly tractable. This 
writer also mentions a female elephant 
W'aich escaped from her owner and was at 
large for fourteen years. On being recap- 
tured she remembered her former driver 
and instantly lav down at his order. 

Locke adduces the learning of tunes as 
proof th:;t birds are gifted with memory. 
" It can not," he says, •' with any appear- 
ance of reason be supposed— much less 
proved that birds, without sense and 
memory, can approach their notes nearer 
and nearer by degrees t, a tune played 
yesterday, which, if they have no idea of 
U in their memory, is nowhere, nor can 
be a pattern for them to imitate, or which 
any repeated essay scan bring them nearer 
to. Since there is no reason why the 
sound of a pipe shoidd leave traces In 
their brains, which not at first, but by 
their after-endeavors, should produce tne 
like sounds; and why the sounds they 
make themseUes should not make traces 
which lh»-y should follow as wtll as those 
of the pipe, is i-. p. salble to conceive." 

There is no question that many animals 
understand the measurement of time It 
is a well-known fnc' that, on lands where 
the crowf are habitu>illv shot at, the birds, 
instead of ke^ piog atarespecttul distance, 
as on the rest of the week, come close up 
to the farm-liouses on .-Sundays, having 
somehow fuund out that the gun» are then 
shelved. . 

E^er> one who has traveled much in 
Scotland, n>ore especially in the Hijjhland 
dlstriets, must have remarked the large at- 
lemlance of shepherds' dogs at church on 
Sundays. The peculiarity is very interest- 
ing to English tourists, one of whom 
states that he was told that many of the 
dogs were more regular attendants han 
their masters. This gentleman mentions 
that, in one parish, the animals, perhaps 
d moralized by a "black sheep" among 
their number, became so quarrelsome and 
unmannerly In their behavior that the 
minister requcsteii all who had been in 
the habit of bringing their dogs to confine 
thtm to the house before leaving for 
church. This pUn answered exceedingly 
well for the first Sunday, but, for the 
future, not a single shepherd or farmer 
could find his do:; on a Sunday morning. 
They had no notion of being deprived of 
their accustomed liberty, and, well know- 
ing the hour of service, set off to church 
without their masters An attempt was 
then made to compromise matters, by 
erecting a larpe kennel close to the 
church, where the dogs were imprisoned 
during public worship, but they kept up 
sucn a fearful howUnc that the congrega- 
tion was seriously disturbed, and there 
was no help for it but to restore them to 
thiir former rights and privileges.—

Thr San Francisco Alta says: "A 
statement has been going the rounds that 
Commander Williams, of the Oneida, who 
■was a widower, was engaged to be mar- 
. ried to a beautiful young lady; that 
the lady died; that her dtath was 
followed by that of his three chil- 
dren; and that this all happened so 
recently that the news of the deaths 
h5d never reached the unfortunate Com- 
> mander before he went down in the 

O'ltida The lady whom ^ luiams was to 
have married died in September last ; and 
the sad news had reached him before his 
departure for Yokohama. The three ch'l- 
dr^n spoken of are all livin.g; one at

The New York World has the follow- 
ing estimate of probabilities: 'The re- 
poried killing of Major Randall by Indians 
IS personally contra<iicted by the reputed 
corpse : but. as we have no knowledge of 
the Major's character, we cannot say how 
far his unsupported assertion should weigh 
against the statements of numerous news- 
papers in a matter in which his interest 
would naturrilly prompt him to take^ the 
most favorahle'vlew of his «wn case." 

This is from a recent nuTiber of the 
Harvard Adrrtcate : The other day Mole

•' A boy said to a gentleman, ' My father

not my sister.' Now how do you explain 
that?" Atom reflected, but all in vain. 
To his every suggestion Molecule replied 
by a mild but decided negative. At length 
Atom was foreed to give it up. " Wh', 
it's simple enough," said Molecule, with 
an exasperating smile, " the boy l;ed :" 

Pardoned Out.— General B had 

been financial agent to the penitentiary in 
Texas for many years. Warmly opposing 
General Houston's last election as Gov- 
ernor of Texas, and not wishing to lose 
! his place, he, in due time, presented a pe- 
tition a.sking to be retained, his long and 
faithful services being urged as a reason 
for granting his prayer. " It appears from 
this petition. General," said Houston, 
" that you have been in the penitentiary 
eight vears." " Yes, sir." And you say 
that you have performed faithfully every 
duty imposed upon you during that 
time?" Yes, sir." " Then, sir, I pardon 
you out !" 

CoMPAR vtivelt but a few years have 
elapsed since glycerine was thrown away 
as a waste product from soap and stearine 
cacd'e works. Now it is one of the most 
useful products. Tubs and pails saturat- 
ed wiih it will neither shrink nor dry up. 
Leather soaked in it keeps moist and pli- 
1 able. It is used for extracting the per- 
fume of flowers; to preserve animal sub- 
stance:- from decay, and hence is valuable 
for "preserving'' purposes. It is em- 
ployed in pharmacy, dying, brewing, 
liquor-m.iking, wine-keeping, and for a 
vast variety of other purposes. With 



nitric acid It forms nltro-glycerlne, one of 
the most powerful explosives known.—

A rathbr amusing incident Qconrfed 
during the revision of the National Guard 
at a country town in France. The young 
m«n who preset^ted himself appeared to 
be quite deaf. The surgeon carefUlly ex- 
amined him. using all the tests employed 
in such cases, but the other remained 
mute. He was about to be transferred to 
the invalid list, when the surgeon, as a 
final attempt, said, In a low tone of voice : 
"Your deafness exempts you from serv- 
ing; however, you will have to appear 

here again on the of next month, in 

order to go through the requisite formali- 
ties." "At what hour, sir?" said the 
young man in great delight: Joy had, in 
fact, worked a miracle. " You are good 
for service and need not trouble yourself," 
was the reply. 

The followiag is recommended by Mr. 
Tintvhim, of Kansas: "Calomel is .one 
of the very best remedies for motes or 
chaS" in the eye of horses or cattle. I had 
a cow that got an oat chaff on the eye 
ball which resisted al' efforts at lemova'. 
Her eye became so swollen she could not 
open it, and a white film had begun to 
grow upon the tiall. I was speaking to 
one of my ■neighb'"ir3 about it ; he recom- 
mended the above remedy, which I ap- 
p led (blowing it into the eye With a goose 
quill) about the bulk of a grain of wheat. 
Twenty-four hours after no one would 
have supposed anything had ever ailed 
the eye. I know of other instances where 
it has been used with equal success."

To dexcrlbe his sister, who now stood by his side, 
were a more dlfflcult task. .. . 

In her, a look of child- Ike trust and confidence was 
charmingly blended with the sweet dignity of early 
womanhood. 

Her hair, of a dark chwtnnt color, fell In wavy masses

Scarctly h<d the moon risen, when, followed by 
Crab, the j onne man set out upon his expedltl'>n. 

Tue ascent, faintly lighted t.y the moon, was steep 
an-i hazardous- at least three hnndrcl and fifty feet It 
was thifkiy covered by a growth of cedars and other 
trees, which protruded In crooked, fantastic shapes

How few people know how to make tea ! 
Only middle aged bachelors ever attain 
supreme excellence in this art, and per- 
haps a few gifltd ladies who have been 
carefully instructed hy them. How many 
of those unconscious damsels who Care- 
lessly shuffle in an indefinite number of 
spoonsful, and drench the same with an 
in 'e finite quantity of half boilingwater, 
realize thedifficulties of the task they have 
so lightly undertaken ! They confidently 
put their tea-pot on the stove, as they say 
"to draw,'' as if, forsooth, tepid water 
would ever draw the hidden treasure out 
of leaves that have, perhaps, been placed 
in a tea-pot only half warmed. Others 
pour you out three thimblesful as strong 
as brandy, and then fill up your cup with 
pure water, and hand you this flavorless 
mixture, with the request that you will add 
milk and sugar according to your taste, 
as if any possible additions could make the 
wretched stuff drinkable. Some pour 
your tea into a cold cup, and deluge it 
with Qjilk. Others merely tinge the fluid, 
already pale with weakness, thinking that 
the tea will look darker without much 
milk. Some give you a good first cup, 
and let the drained tea pot stand till you 
call for a second ; then have the effrontery 
to fill it up under your very nose, and 
offer to pour you out any quantity of 
hot water, which they expect you to 
drink gravely, with milk and sugar, and 
call it iea. Others put in soda, 
and stir the tea-leaves with a spoon 
— some boil your tea ! in fact, there is no 
end to the dreadful delusions practiced 
by women on themselves and their vic- 
tims under the name of tea making. 
Doubtless, there are certain rules which 
may be laid down, such as — see that the 
water boils ; warm your tea pot and cups 
well through ; fill the tea-pot at least half 
or three quarters full, or your tea will be 
cold, the water will not be hot enough to 
draw, or it will draw a little strong es- 
sence, which you will presently have to 
drown, and consequently spoil, with boil- 
ing water. Keep the tea as much as pos- 
sible of an even quality. Let the second 
and third cups ba at least as strong as the 
first. Dr. Johnson was a great eonnai8>>eur 
in tea, and used not unfrequently to take 
twelve cups. But such were Mrs. Thrale's 
experience and skill, that we do not hear 
of his being ever disappointed. But no 
rules will insure good lea-making. Poeta 
nnscitur non Jit, and it may be said simi- 
larly, you are born a tea-maker, but you 
cannot become one. 

However, to be a good tea-maker is one 
thing, and to avoid being a very bad one 
is another ; and we are certain, if ladies 
could be made to realize the importance 
of this delightful art, and if they only 
knew what excellent judges most men 
are of tea, we should soon have what is 
sadly wanted thron hout the country,— 
a great reform in tea-making. — Good

A supple .ellow SI rang like a tlgT upon the back of 
Merton. who was gallantly d stlnrolshing hiiiiselt. 
and was about drlvliw a dirk in the back of his neck, 
when Tom Crab, w th on*! s'ash of the hnge cu'lass 
he had been wle'dlng, cut off the little Frenchman s 

head. . ^ 

One after another, the Merchantman's brave ci^w 

f-llti the deck, so i.h't there at length remained but 

a dozen, who wfrf <oon tverpow»-red. #. v. 

Amor g these prUoner' were Merton and Tom t^ran. 

" These rascals c ust all walk overboard ! salo the 

mi man, who ha I been one of the leaders or tne 

boarding partv. . . „_ 

" Blaze a#ay and shoot me." said Tom Crab, coolly 
—"better die that way than t'other." 

There was no antwer. . _ . „, 

" Whatever y u <io to u« you will at lesst be merci-

he will not be here to-night, you may stay here

That iiicht he slept but little. Fariy In the morning, 
he waked to see the sun shining through the windows 
of the apartment, and lo hear the loud snorinu' of Tom 
' rab. who. preferring the lounce to the bed, had 
streU-hed himself thereon, with his long legs dangling 
over one end. , 

The voung man rose, dressed himself, and performed 
his abfutlons just as Crab left the lounije. 

A minute later the same servant who had brought 
the tray entered, lollowefl by a couple of men. 

• Ihese men will take you to the tent where you 

came from. "s said the servant to Crab. _ . ,. , 

"Ay. ay. now none of that!" exclaimed Crab. 1 

don't go without this chap goes with me I" pointing at 

Merton. 

"Tiierfl Is no harm Intended him. said one of the 
men; "come, or w-' must force you." 

"Not a bit of It!" ixclalnied Crab, picking up a 
sliver fork, and standing at bay. " I've got fat on

Infection In the Air. 

Experimental chemist.8 have repeatedly ana- 
lyzed the air at nnbealfhy seasons, in the hope of 
detecting the Invisible vims which prodncee 
epidemic d'sease. They have not yet discovered 
It. and scarcely any two of them agree as tolls na- 
ture. This is of little consequence. It la Bufflc- 
ienttoknow that lie poisonous principle exists, 
and that a safeguard atrainst its insidious influence 
has been provided. In the sprinjr and early sum- 
mer, when fever and ague, remittent fever and 
otherperlodicil diseases of that class are preva- 
lent. It is only necessary to fortlfv the tystem with 
a course of Hostetters 8tom«ch Bitters to escape 
them. If this prerantlon has been ncg'ected. 
which it never ought to be In any district liable to 
such visitations, and If the paroxysms of malarious 
fever have already commenced, they may always 
be checked or broken up by a course of tbat pow- 
erful vetetable tonic and alterative. Quinine 
was once considered the only specific for chills 
and fevers; but it is now generally admitted that 
tbi« nauseous alkaloid Isi a dsneerons medicine, 
and that its secondary tffects are more to be 
dreaded than any form of Intermittent fever. It Is 
simply a tremendous ahtringent. It does not 
tench the disordered liver, or regulate the bowels, 
or in any way improve the condition of the animal 
fluids. Hostetter's Bitters, on the other hand. In 
addition to being a better and safer tonic than any 
prepsralion of qnlntne. has a balsamic effect upon 
the whole svstem. It 1« aperient and antibilious, 
as well as directly invigorating, and purities the 
secretions as well as regulates the secretive, or- 
gans. It stimulates the appetite, strengthens the 
stomach, soohes the nerves promotes healthful 
perspiration, and induces quiet sleep. As a stom- 
achic It baa no rival. Cases of indigestion tbat no 
other tonic seems capable of alleviating, are cured 
In a few weeks by its regular n e.

CHAPTEK VI. 

Time, which never stands still or waits, 
hns dn)pped ?ix. more ytara into the bo- 
BOfu of Ktemity. I want you Ut step with 
lue H momi'nl into the home of thu An- 
Cffsons. There has been some change 
since we shW it Kst. There are evidences 
of prosp<rity, both externally and inter- 
nally. The old ambition of Myra Ander- 
son in rrpird to " stuffed furniture," has 
be< n rfuiized, and she no longer scr^irs, 
as of old, the floor of her kitchen, where a 
pretry ol c.irptt reigns just now in sus- 
picious newne.'^s. Ilere and there about 
the bouse are odd bits of curious bijouterie, 
ami rire sht lid, and two or three pretty, 
foreign looking pylnlings in curiously 
carvtd frames, and a pretty littl* oval 
stiind of brilliant mosaic ; but the dearest 
and most b»'auiilul thing of all in the eyes 
of Ben Anderson and his wife, is the pic- 
ture of a haudsimie young fellow, in a 
ro.ofWiMxl and gilt frame, hanging over 
the minfel in the sitting room. There is 
a bioad sailor's collar turned away from 
the linely turmd, sinewy throat, and a 
loost ly knotted liundkerchief falling ovtr 
the full chtst. Tiie heavy ch-atnut hair 
is thrown carelesaiy back from a broad, 
oped ftireh«aJ, as fair and white as a 
girl's. Taken altogether, there is some- 
thing bo;h winning and inspiring in the 
fnsh, rcsoliue face, and a stranger would 
instinctively feel drawn toward it. Is it 
any wonder then that Myra Anderson 
st«>pptd every few minutes as she bustled 
ab- ut the pKasant, f^unshiny room, and 
l»>ok>Hl up at the picture," and won- 
dertil for the ni»e hundred and 
ninety nintli time if he had changed 
mi:ch in ihtse two years, and how 
her boy— he w>uid always be a boy 
to her — would lo<ik with &b<eard, as he had 
written her h« wore one now. She tried 
tt) fancy how he wonld l<x>k, and smiled 
sofily to hersf If ad she went about put- 
ting little touches here and there, that it 
Tni>;ht h»ok pleisint and attrac ive to him, 
lor he WH.S to be there that noon — that 
xtry noon, she saiil over and over, in a lit- 
tle tit nult of joyous dt light. 

lta!pU had been home twice since he 
weni away, for a little brief visit, but now 
he was coming h'nie to stay all winter, 
and it seeiuen to the ft)nd, happy mother 
th ii there was a new heaven and a new 
earth— everything was *i beautiful and 
full of sweet peace. And then there was 
aniilh- r thing: Ralph was coming home 
Cdiitaiu — Captain Ralph Anderson : 

liuu said '- p^ii&w !" when she said the 
name over with its new title, but a fiiint 
color crept into hi* brooztd face, and a 
su'Iden light fl'inu'd in his grave eyes. 

" Do you think we have changed much, 
Bou?"stie asked, a little anxiously. "I 
mean so as to KK>k strange to fii/n." 

" Tou haven't, Myra. You look as fresh 
as a girl, di-spitv your forty live years," 
he Slid. h)okit!geafnet,tly into the bright. 
cxcitetl face, which flushed like a girl's at 
the words of praise. 

The lovely October air came in at the 
opt n divir and lifttel the iron-grey hair 
ot Ben Andeison, and crept with a little 
shiver ol delight through the fragrant 
geranium leases in the window, and just 
totuhed. with careful fingers, the ocented 
petals of the great creamy ano pink roses 
«»n the mauiel. Blanche Arnold had sent 
thode over that morning from her father's 
ooDflerviktitry. 

Was there ever, I wonder, such an Oc- 
tober day before? 

" Whfre tkroneh a mppbtr* sea the son 
S«ii«(i like a ?u)den galleon •" 

All the long line of faintly indulating 
hills were cradled in golden mists. Far 
away the river glowed like a pale opal, 
anil the cit j roofi and spires were faintly 
viiiible against the far-off amber blue skies 

At just twelve o'clt>ck our old friend 
Jf ed Bradke drove up to Ben Ander»in'3 
door with a pretty bran new buggy, 
bought especially for ti^e occasion, and a 
Itrvt ly iiuie ^pjui of chestnut colts driven 
taadcm. 

"I think, perhaps. I had better introduce 
you tt> Nf'd. t >r I have no tdca yeiu would 
know him if I didn't. Tne lank, light 
hrtir hr,^ bren cropped and brj«heti up 
ovi r ills estrs (in:>tead of straight behind 
tbeiu. as f irmtrly,) and sometning— per- 
h.ips a change in climate— has changeti 
tilt color fri>m a pale sand color to a very 
Jorelj auburo-brown. The tac« is a£ 



fresh and fair as it was eight years ago, 
and you look in vain for a single place 
where the " pencil of Time" has made so 
much as a single comma. He is a little 
stouter, and to tell the truth, a little hand- 
somer. He is dressed, too! I doubt if 
ever the sun reflected In a glossier beaver, 
or a more brilliant pair of boots ; and i 
most know there was never such loves of 
trousers sported, even on Broadway. Now 
please don't guess that there was " a 
woman in the case," because by and by, 
when I get an opportunity, I want to tell 
you about it, and nothing in the world 
vexes me so as to And myself forestalled 
when I am intending to tell a secret. 

Ned Bratllee had beggetl the oppor- 
tunity of driving to the depot to meet 
Ilalph, and Ben Anderson had con.seuted, 
partly to please his old friend, and partly 
because he didn't care to have stranger 
eyes looking on when Tie met his boy. 

'• Well, I declare, Mrs. Anderson ! You 
don't look more'n sixteen, and your cheeks 
are like piny's,' he cried, making an awk- 
ward attempt to raise his beaver, as she 
came to the door. " What ioill the Cap- 
ting say ?" 

" You won't stop to talk, will you, Ned, 
but drive right home as soon as the train 
gets in ?" siie said, eagerly, without no- 
ticing his salutation save by a heightened 
color. 

" I'll be back by half-past one if the 
world stands ; have a nice lot of dinner, 
'cos you 7fniy hdve company ; there's no 
knowin'. Any wanta in town?" 
"No, no!" 

He mae1e a feint of laughing at her eager 
impatience, but his voice had an odd, 
hu.'ky sound in it, altogtther unusual. 

How Slow the hands moved over the 
dial! How many times, even before one 
o'clock, she went and stood in the south 
dfx>r. and looked off over the long prairie 
road, shading her eyes with her Irnnd, and 
smiling softly ta herself. And when at 
last, live minutes before the time, through 
tne faint cloud of dust she saw alight car- 
riage, with a pair of horses tandem, and 
saw there were two in it, how wiidly her 
he irt beat ! And then her eyes grew sud- 
denly misty. There was a little whirl of 
swift wheels, and like one in a blissful 
dream, she saw a form spring to the 
gruuud, and a moment more and she was 
crying in the arms of a tall, bre)ad- chested, 
handsome man, who kissed her over and 
over, while at the same moment he shook 
hands with his lather, and laughed hap- 
pily, despite the tears in his handsome 
blue eyes. 

"Ef I'd thought you would feel so 
sorry, and take on so, Mrs. Anderson, 111 
be darned ef I'd brought the capting 
here at all !" Ned exclaimed, blowing his 
nose vigt)rou3ly. 

"The same silly old dog," Ralph said, 
laughing. " Mother, what has come over 
Ned? He looks as if he had teen made 
over new. I'll bet he's got a girl." 

To Ralph's surprise the ruddy face 
grew several shades deeper. " What," he 
cried, "did that shot hiir" 

" Never you mind, Capting," Ned re- 
plied, trying to liok at ease, but still 
blushing like an Indian summer sunset. 
Then the tlinner was served — and such 
a dinner as it was ! There wai the nicest 
of salmon trout, which Ben Anderson had 
rode into the city before sunrise to get ; 
and chickens in pies, and stews, and 
roasts; and just the loveliest little pig, 
roasted whole, lying on his side in a great 
white platter with a bright blue edge, and 
looking ready to burst with happiness and 
pride that he, of all his mother's little 
snow-white, pink-nosed children, should 
have the honor to be eaten on this great 
occitaion. And then the gravies and 
sauces and vegetables ! And then, again, 
the pies and puddings— why ! if I were to 
tell them all, it would take me half a day ! 
Only this I will say : I don't believe there 
was ever before such a wonderful dinner, 
or ever quite such a happy, happy party 
as sat before it. And I am (juite as sure, 
by the admiring look in her eyes, that 
Myra Anderson thought there was not 
another meither in the wide world that 
had such a boy as hers ! 

I feel as if 1 ought to beg the reader's 
pardon for not before intrexluclng him to 
the Montfords, of Monlford House. The 
more so because they are the only " qual- 
ity," par exctlletue, which the region round 
about could boast. Let me make haste to 
atone for my neglect, without a moment's 
delay. 

First, then, there was Gilbert Montford, 
an English gentleman of great wealth, 
and the very bluest of blood. There was, 
next in order of importance, his agent 
and cimtidential friend, Mr. Alfred De 
Vries, who had been b«)rn and educateelin 
Pans. Tuen there were three chilelren — 
or rather, they were children once. Just 
at this time they were respectively twen- 
ty-six, twenty- four, and twenty. Miss 
Alihea Montford being the eldest, her sis- 
ter Fannie next, and Victor, the brother, 
who was, as I just said, twenty. 

Mr. Mtmtford had been in the State 
something like nine years. He load one 
of the finest establishments in the coun- 
try, ilontford House was a sort of mar- 
vel to the simple republicans of the sur- 
rounding countrj'. There was massive 
pieces of silver which had been handed 
down for genvrations, some of it beanng 
heraldic devices which showed the great- 
ness of iis possessors. The Montford 
servants wore livery, and the Montiord 
crest— a ramptnt lion, with an uplifted 
arm above it, — was emblazcmed on the 
panels of the family carriages Altogeth- 
er, they were a very high-born, ari.'itelcrat- 
ic family, with plenty of money, appar- 
ently, and, as a consequence, plenty of 
admirers. 

It they were a little select in their as- 
sociates no one thought of it with the 
feeling of indignation or annoyance with 
which they regarded the aristocratic pre- 
tensions of Jenkins Stubby, Esq , wh>)se 
father used to saw wood for a railier scan- 
ty living. Mr. Montford was to the manor 
bom, and the de««cendant of lords and no- 
blemen had something to be proud of; 
for, say what we wdl. family and position 
are something, and Americans have a due 
respect for '• the nobility." 

Among the priTileged visitors at the 
Montiord House was Blanche Arnold, 
bhe had been intimate with the Jlontford 
young la'Ues ever since they came to the 
neighborhood. They were somewhat 
cider than her, but Blanche was always 
mature and womanlv. even when a small 
child, and so the difference in ages was 
not noticeable. Some people prophesied 
that she would marry \1ctor

Ralpn was still a little afraid of her. She 
could still make him stammer and blush 
by one of her wonderfuf glances, and the 
t<juchofher white, velvet soft fingers, 
inade him catch his breath with a sensa- 
tion of being smothered in rose leaves. 

Ralph was not a vain fellow, by any 
means, but he could not be quite blind to 
the admiration expressed in his cousin's 
shy, soft glances, half hidden by the 
drooping lashes which veiled their soft 
fire. 

Perhans it showed Miss Blanche Ar 
nold's good taste— I think it did. Ralph 
Anderson was worthy of any woman's ad- 
miration, either mentally or physi- 
cally. He had the resolute integrity 
and the unswerving loyalty to principle 
which characterized his Puritan ancestors, 
to which was added a broader faith and a 
moie generous spirit. He was besides 
brave, resolute, ambitious and fearleiss; 
and yet withal tender and gentle of heart 
as a woman, sometimes. He was just the 
sort of feliow to win a woman's admira 
tion, when to all this was added a hand 
some lace, and a fine physique. 

He had been at home a week when 
Blanche rode out one morning with an in- 
vitation for him to call at Monlford House. 
The youn»r ladies had been very anxious 
she should bring him, "they had, some- 
how, got an impression that he was some- 
thing ejuite wtmderful." 

Suejust lifi«dher eyes, and dropped 
them tiastily, but the look in them, and 
the faint flush that stained her cheek, gave 
a very pretty solution as to the agency by 
which they came to have such an impres- 
sion. Wh-it young mtiu of tiventy three, 
with blood in his veins, would have re- 
fused the invitation, prefaced by so delicate 
a cjmpliment from such a pretty woman ? 
I should be quite ashamed of my hero if 
he had maniiested such a fearful lack of 
gallantry ; bui I am happy to record that 
ne did not. 

It was a clear, crisp, frosty morning, and 
the prairies glittered in the sun liae frosted 
emcr^Uds. The cool air brought a laint 
rose-red to Blanche Arnold's creamy cheek, 
and the wonderful gray eyes, with tHeir 
changeful expression, sparkled and 
gleamed in the mett bewildering way as 
they glanced, and drooped, and wavered, 
and aaid the moat unutteraole things that 
one pair of pretty eyes ever said. 

They did not go direct to Montford 
Houae— it was early to call— but drove off 
acroa-j the prairie and down the river road, 
and Italph, looking in the matchless face, 
under the glamour of those alluring eyes, 
thought he should be willing to ride on so 
forever. 

But Miss Arnold was possessed of ex- 
cellent judgment. She knew just how 
far to excite a sentiment, and have it keen 
and unsated. So presently she said, looking 
at her little jeweled watch ! 

" 1 promised Althea to be there at eleven, 
and it lacks but ten minutes— we must 
hurry ; I bad no idea it was so late." 

Monlford House was a large, imposing 
house, with balconies and verandahs, giv- 
ing it an air of taste and comfort and ele- 
gance. It sat biMjk from the street a little, 
and was reached by a circular drive-way. 
A servant stood by the steps to take the 
horae when they drove up, and a moment 
more and the door was opened in response 
to their ring. Blanche raised her train of 
rustling silk and stepped in past the girl 
who stood holding open the door, without 
glancing at her ; but Ralph involuntarily 
raised his ej es to her fact — started, colored, 
and then slopped short and stared at her 
with all his might. 

Blanche dropped the voluminous fold of 
her dress, gave them a little deft shake, and 
looked round. Just the faintest possible 
frown contracted her smooth brow. The 
girl saw it, and an aiigry red flamed in her 
tace, whether at the young mans imperti- 
nani stare, or the young lady's evident dis- 
approval of it, one couldu't quite tell. 

" Blanche, that girl looks as our little 
Viola did," he said, in a quick under tone, 
as they followed the girl to the parlor. " I 
fear I was rude, but 1 was so startled I for- 
got myself." 

" No great harm done— she is only one 
of the servants, I hough a new one I think," 
she answered coolly and indifferentlv. 

Just then they reached the parlor door 
which the girl opened for Blanche, who 
was in advance, to enter. 1 here was a 
little feminine bustle, during which Ralph 
stole another glance at the girl's fao^. It 
was white as if she was dead, and had 
such a strange look ! 



marry \~ictor some day. 
She was nearly a year the oldest, but that 
was nothing where one had the grace and 
beauty, and accomplishment* that .Miss 
Arnold p<>s,-»fflsert. It was very evident, 
als\ that young Monlford was very mueh 
interested in the young lady, and certain- 
ly it would be a good thing fi>r her, who 
was, afttr all, oo^ the dau^ter of a sim- 
ple American citizen. 

If Blanche Arnold had been beautiful 
as a ctiild. she was regal as a woman. 
Despite his added years and experience. 



CHAPTER VII. 

Tom Arnold had a housekeeper, a rather 
attractive little woman of perhaps thirty- 
five, who rejoiced in the name of Bug bee. 
I say rejoiced ; perhaps that is not quite 
correct. It was maliciously reported that 
Mra Bugbee would nut seriously obj.-ct to 
dropping that cognomen if a favorable 
opportunity occurred f)r an excbange. 
But being a widow, people were privileged 
to say such uncharitable things of her 
without rebuka 1 think widows are the 
most abased and slandered people in the 
world. The idea of their ever manceuvre- 
ing or setting traps for a husband — why, 
it's simply preposterous ! I wouldn't be- 
lieve it if I saw it with my own ey»8. 

Bugbee, deceased, had shuflled off this 
mortal coil something like five years be- 
fore, so she might be said to be in the lav- 
ender and grey stage of her grief, having 
triumphantly outlived the crape and bom- 
b.izine peritxi. She was a very black- 
eyed little woman, with cheeks as round 
and red as a China doll's, and these cool, 
grey tints were very becoming, and made 
her look " as fresh as a rose set in a bunch 
of tansy." This simile is not original 
with me; it originated in the brain of 
Ned Bradlee, and it first occurred to him 
one spring evening when he went up to 
Arnold's after some turnip seed. And 
Mrs. Bugbee, m the absence of the mas- 
ter of the house, got it for him, pouring it 
out of the paper into her plump, rosy 
palm, and holding it out for him to look 
at, talking all the time of wtiat ' splendid " 
turnips tbey were, and what lovely sauce 
tney made mashed up with potatoes and 
butter and p)epper. 

*' Du you love turnip 8a9s,Mis Bugbee?" 
Ned asked, venturing a look from the 
plump hand to the bright eyes of his com 
pauiosL. 

" O yes, Mr. Bradlee, I lore it better 
than anything in the world I" was the fer- 
vent answer. 

Now, turnip sauce was Ned's sj)ecial 
delight, ^ut for an instant he felt a little 
twinge of jealous envy toward his old fa- 
vorite. 

"I should think youlcomld raise beautiful 
ones on yonr place. I thought of it wnen 
I WAS by there the other day," she con- 
tinued, doing up the seed and laying it in 
his hand, just brushing h*r sleeve across 
his arm, and loaching m the lightest pos- 
sible way her little warm fingers to his 
palm. 

Alas, poor Ned ! He went home that 
night thoroughly bewildered. He forgot 
that he had eaten no supper, he forgot 
that his feet were wet from walking di- 



rectly through a "slough," instead of tak- 
ing the path round it— indeed, 1 am not 
sure but he forgot there was a slough 
there at all ; he forgot to shut up his hens 
(and as a consequence lost more than half 
his young beets beRire he was awake in 
the morning) and to feed the chestnut 
colts, but he did not for^jet Mrs. Bugbee — 
ah no ! not even in his dreams, for then 
he fancied she was an immense turnip, 
with lavender leaves bound with pink 
ribbon, and wken he went to " pull " her, 
she put up her lips and kissed him! He 
woke up with i little delicious thrill, and 
an aboroinable cold in his head. He had 
forgotten to shut down t-he window over 
his bed, and the wind had come round 
and waa blowing directljf on him. 

" Ned Bradlee, you're a consarned old 
fool?" he said, dropping the window with 
a bang. " Aint you ashamed of yourself, 
at your time o' life -forty -five the thir- 
teenth day of last Jiuewary — you old 
ninny, you?" 

But as he laid back in bed for another 
nap, he somehow hoped he should dream 
that " turnip " dream agidn ! 

The wonderful Improvement which had 
come over Ned's psraoruMe, had all dated 
from that night. There was a snug little 
frame house going up now on that "quar- 
ter section," and though the question had 
not yet been directly put, Mrs. Susan 
Bugbee was as morally certain of some 
day making "turnip ss.uce" within its 
pleasant walls as one can be of anything in 
this changeable world. 

And now, it having just occurred tome, 
I will go back and looh; after my hero, 
whom, if I mistake not, [ left on the eve 
of an introduction to the Misses Mont- 
ford. 

Ralph felt, as he went through the 
ceremony of introduction, as if he was in 
a sort of nightmare. Did you ever look 
at the sun. until, wien j ou looked away, 
you could see a round, prismatic ball 
wherever your eyes rested? Just so it 
seemed to Ralph Anderson for the first 
few minutes after he catre into the room. 
Look wherever he would, at the gilt wall- 
paper, the pictures, the cjirved mouldings, 
or even int(» the faces of :he Misses Mont- 
ford, a pale olive face, with great lustrous, 
startled eyes, seemed to look out at and 
contront hioL But aftei a little it wore 
away so that he could observe his new 
friends. 

Miss Althea Montford was a light haired 
young lady— not particularly young, 
either — with a ruddy 'jomplexion and 
very pale blue eyes. She had a very 
large — I may say extremely large— nose, 
of the Roman style of ar<;hitecture, which 
was, without exaggeration, the most 
prominent thing about her. Without 
knowing anything about her, one would 
be pretty apt to think tier reserved and 
haughty, and perhaps a little unscrupu- 
lous. I don't think you would be inclined 
to change your mind much after you did 
know her. 

Misa Fannia Montforil was not much 
like her sister in any way. She was 
slight and sallow', with pleasant, hazel 
eyes, and heavy dark brown hair that 
drooped low overher forehead, which was 
low, but broad and full. She talked some, 
when her sister, who always took the 
lead in everything, was not talking ; when 
she was, she busied herself very content- 
edly over some sort cf worsted em- 
broidery. 

If Miss Blanche Arnold had searched 
the country through she could not have 
found a better foil to her clear, rare 
beauty, than either of the Miss Montfords 
furnished. Something of this thought 
crept into Ralph's mmd, but he rather 
fancied Miss Fannie, despite her plain- 
ness. Her thin, sallov face lighted up 
when she talked, but more especially 
when she smiled, and contrary to the gen- 
eral judgment, he called her much better 
looking than her sister. a;ad he didn't feel 
so much in awe of her, and while Miss 
Althea and his cou.ain were examining a 
Cape Jessamine, who8« imowy blossoms 
filled the room with its heavy perfume, he 
ventured to a?k her the name of the young 
lady who showed them in 

" Young lady ? O y-s, ' she said with 
a faint smile. "A pretty, bright-eyed 
little girl, wasn't it ? It is a new maid 
servant my father hired yesterday. We 
don't usually take a servant witnout a 
recommendation." 

" Nor would we now, if I had my way," 
interrupted Miss Allhes, in a severe 
tone. 

" But she wished so much to stay, you 
know," interrupted Fannie, deprecatingly. 
" O, it's the young person whoanswereid 
the bell that you are atking of, is it ?" 
said Blanche. "Do you know? Cousin 
Ralph, here, was quite struck with her ; 
if you will believe me, girls," and she 
laughed a little sofc, musii^l laugh. 

" She looked very much like one I used 
to love, who is dead now," Ralph saiJ 
gravely, his eyes darkening just a little, 
and a taint wave of color liweeping to his 
temples. 

"Forgive me, dear twusin Ralph," 
BLiuche said, laying her hand on his with 
a pretty, penitent gesture. " I shall be 
so unhappy if you are vexed with me ! I 
was only in jest," and the^fray eyes looked 
up into his with such a grieved, troubled 
look, that he forgave her instantly, and 
was more fascinated than before. 

" It is something rather strange — about 
this girl, I mean," said Miss Montford. 
" She came to the oflSce and asked for my 
father, so the postmaster told Victor this 
m >rning. She acked to seij him when she 
came, and Dale. I think it was, showed 
her into the library where papa was, alone. 
The first I knew he cune into the dining- 
room with her, and said he had engaged 
Miss Blake— her name is Stella Blake— as 
wairing-maid, and general assistant about 
ttwi house. I remonstrated, and told him 
We needed no more servam.s, but I think 
the girl must have bewitched him with 
those unc'inny eyes of hers ; he declared 
that we did need her, and lihe should stay. 
And so, if he chooses to piy her, I sup- 
pose he can, and she will s';ay." 

" She is very quick and handy, and has 
exquisite taste in arranging a table," Fan- 
nie said, quietly. 

Almost unconsciously to himself Ralph 
gave her a pleased, grateful glance. She 
smiled slightly, and the thio, sallow face 
flu8he«ijust a little. 

Just then the door opened, and Mr. 
Alfred DeVries walked leisurely and 
quietly into the room. 

Ralph had never seen liim since that 
September morning, eight years before, 
when standing on the dripping, wreck- 
strewn beach, he had watcied him kneel- 
ing by the liUle ledgy mou ad of sand and 
kelp. And yet he should have known 
him anywhere, he said to himself. The 
tall, elegant form was as lithe ani grace- 
fiil, the step as assured, the hair as dark 
and abundaat, and the fuil, j tty beard as 
^1 'S»y and hands<ome. It seemed so 
strange, when he ba'i changed s^o much, 
that ths maa looied as it time had s'ood 
still Willi bira. But there vrere laint lines 
here and there about the eyes and mouth 



which had not been there eight years be- 
fore, but with the casual glance he had 
then had of him, he did not notice about 
that. The general contour and expres- 
sion of face and form were the Fame. 

When Ralph shook hands with Mr 
DeVries and looked in his eyes— those 
curious, metallic, yellow-br^wn eyes -it 
flashed into his mind instantly what Viola 
had said concerning their being just the 
"color of her bronza slippers. "I will 
ask him about her sometime," he thought 
to himself. 

Some one outside broke out whistling 
" God save the Queen," and a moment 
more a light foot-step ran up the long 
marble steps, passed through the entrance 
and hall in a gay, breezy way, and opened 
the door. He stopped short, and ccdored to 
the roots of his curly auburn hair, upon 
seeing that there was company, or rather 
upon see'infrtcho the company was. Ralph, 
who had nothing else to dp just then, 
watched him, and 8;»w how eagerly, but 
shyly, his eyes sought Blaache's, and he 
fancied she too colored just a little. He 
felt more vexed and annoyed than he 
would have believed it possible for him to 
feel about so simple a thing. 

Then Miss Montford said, smilingly, 
looking on the fair, handsome, young 
face, which was frank and open as the 
day. with a little, quick, fjnd look : 

** Captain Anderson, this is my young 
brother, Victor." 

" He came forward with easy, genial 
frankness, and extended his hand. There 
was something peculiarly sweet and win- 
ning about the boyish face, for he did not 
look his twenty-one years. And the little 
twinge of jealousy that had just trembl.d 
across Ralph's consciousness, shrunk away 
out of sight before the pleasant smile 
and warm hand shake of this youngest 
and Mrest of the house of Monlford. 

' I am so glad to see you," he said, cor- 
dially. "Blanche has told us so much of 
you ; and then your sea voyages have 
seemed something so wonderful to me— 
do you know that you are a sort of Rob- 
inson Crusoe to my admiring fancy?'' 
laughing pleasantly. 

"I have no man Friday," Ralph said, 
laughing, too. 

"No? No matter. But we will omit 
the part of Friday. I am so glad you 
came up!" he said again, with naive 
frankness. 

Whatever one said of Mr. Montford, or 
his daughters, or his confidential agent, 
Mr. De Vries, everybody was unanimous 
in declaring Victor Montford a " tip-top 
fellow." Highsouled, chivalrous, gentle, 
sweet tempered and open-hearted, he at 
least was worthy to represent the " gentle 
blood " the Montfords boasted. 

"Mother," Ralph said, thoughtfiilly, 
after Blanche had left him and driven 
away, "did you ever think, or try to 
think, how Viok would have looked if she 
had lived ?" 

He came and sat down before her, and 
looked wistfully iu her face, his own grave 
and thoughtful. 

" Yes, Ralph ; but I cannot think of her 
as anything out a chili. She will always 
be a child to me. Perhaps the dead grow 
old, but I always think of my baby as a 
baby still, and Viola always comes to me 
as I saw her last. She stood on tiptoe, 
holding open the door a little, and kissing 
her hand to me with a light rippling 
laugh. There was a sunny sparkle in her 
beautiful eyes, and I remember that her 
hat was on one side, and her hair was 
lying loose and tangled about her neck. 
I can see every motion and gesture — I 
have been over them so many times— as 
if it were but yesterday, even to the pre- 
cise pattern of the embroidery on her 
crimson merino dress. You remember the 
dress, Ralph ? She had it on the night of 
the wreck. The salt water didn't hurt it 
a bit, though I remember I thought it 
would, and that I should have to wash it ; 
but I just rinsed it up and down in some 
clear water, and hung it up without 
wringing, and it looked as nice as new. 
She never wore it again till we started to 
come out here. What a comfort she 
would have been to us when you are 
away, Ralph, if she had lived." 

She sighed, and put het hand up over 
her eyes. 

"I suppose it is all right," she said, 
still shading her eyes with her hand ; " I 
suppose everything is, but I can't always 
see it as your father does. I am sure I 
try, and I know 'tis so, but things seem so 
dark sometimes! They did when your 
grandfather was drowned." 

" I will tell you," said Ralph, " what I 
had in my mind when I asked you if you 
ever thought how our lost Viola would 
have looked if she had grown to woman- 
hood. J have often busied myself fancy- 
ing the sort of woman she would have 
made, and how she would have looked. 
Well, you know 1 have been up to Mr. 
Montford's to day, but you wonder what 
that has to do with it I see by your face— 
what a transparent face you have got, lit- 
tle mother!' And getting up, he came 
and stocd behind her chair, and leaned 
over and took her face in his hands and 
drew it back and kissed it. "I wish I 
could read Blanche's fiace as easily as I can 

frours," he added, blushing, and then 
aughing to turn it off. " What a face that 
girl has got !" 

" She is very handsome !" 

"Yes; but it isn't just that, I mean," 
he interrupted. 

" I thiak Blanche like« you, Ralph ; and 
if— you think — that is," she sinmrnered 
confusedly, " if you two should like each 
other well enough to — to marry some day, 
it would be splendid." 

" O mother! Bknche is too elegant and 
accomplished for a fellow like me to think 
of," he said deprecatingly, but a 



would have been— that I was guilty of the 
rudeness of staring at her, I tear, very im 
pertinently." 

" How does she look ? I wish I could 
see her," Mrs Anderson said, eagerly. 

" She is, as I said, slight, with a pale 
olive skin, and jetty eyes and hair. But 
that doesn't give you an idea about her 
looks at all, for that rests so much upon 
expression, and she has got the most ex- 
pressive face— not after Blanche's style, 
Blanche controls her face, this girl does not 
—with eyes that look like smouldering vol- 
canoes; Mrs. Montford calls them 'un- 
canny.' By the way, what sort of a man 
is tnis DeVries? It always seemed to me 
that he knew more about Viola than he 
was willing to telL It ia rather odd, isn't 
it that we should happen to be neigh- 
bors?" * 

" I don't know, I never thought much 
of it. I never saw him but once ; then he 
called here, and very naturally the con 
versation turned on the shipwreck. He 
seemed to feel very badly when I talked 
with him about the sad fate of Little 
Viola. He said he had been stopping in 
England and on the Continent some 
months, settling up the business affairs of 
Mr. Montford, who had come to America 
with his family the previous May, He 
had completed his business, and being at 
Havre, he took passage in the Le Brun 
in preference to wailing for the regular 
steamer a week. There were but five or 
six passengers, and this Mrs. Mallard— A* 
thinks the name was Mallard, as he re- 
membered seeing it so recorded, and he re- 
members distinctly hearing the Captain 
address her by that title— and her child 
were among them, but he only saw the 
child; the lady seemed suffering under 
some nervous malady." 

" Why didn't you tell him what Viola 
said about her mother's being so affected 
when she saw him?" interrupted Ralph. 
" I did. but I am positive, Ralph, that she 
was mistaken. You wouW have been if 
you had seen how pained and surprised 
he was that the child should have fancied 
such a thing. He said it he had thought 
of such a possibility he should not have 
rested till he had removed the erroneous 
impression from the child's mind, if he 
had made the journey from the West on 
purpose. He thinks illness, and the ex- 
citement of the storm, added to her half 
drowned condition, turned the poor wo- 
man's brain, and your father and I think 
so, now. But it doesn't matter since both 
are dead. Did you see Mr. Montford ?" 
she asked, after a moment of silence. 

" No, not the senior Mr. Montford. I 
saw Mr. Victor Montford — a fine young 
fellow, too, I judge." 

"Yes; bat why I asked, no one sees 
much of Mr. Gilbert Montford, only when 
he drives out, or something of that kind. 
Some think he is not quite as clever as 
people in general, and that is why he 
keeps this DeVries to attend to all his 
business affaira Maybe, however, it's the 
Eugiinii way Of QoiDg luings, I presume 
'tis. But no one ever goes to Mr. Mont 
ford on any business matter whatever, 
but always to Mr. DeVries, who negotiates 
loans, invests all moneys, and pays all 
claims." 



" Do you mean that he is not bright, this 
Mr. Montford ?" Ralph asked, looking sur- 
prised, 

"O dear no, not that, really. Only that 
he isn't as shrewd and capable, perhaps, 
as some, and any one who was keen might 
take advantage of him, you see ; but per- 
haps it is only surmise." 



CHAPTER VIIL 

Mr. Alfred DeVries did not quite like 
the new servant at Montford House. One 
thing particukrly hedid not like, and that 
was the way in which the engagement was 
made. It was something quite unusual 
for Mr. Montford to take business into his 
own hands in this way, and Mr. DeVries 
felt as if his rights had been invaded. 

Perhaps I might as well say here, as 
anywhere, tliat Mr. Gilbert was not as 
clever as some people— his private 
Secretary, for instance. He was one of 
those people who are characterized as 
having " more money than brains " There- 
fore, to make up for that lack, Mr. DeVries, 
who was in exactly the opposite condition, 
had taken upon himself the charge of his 
affairs. Perhaps he made a good thing 
out of it, at least he appeared well satis- 
fied, generally ; and being high |in Miss 
Montford's good graces, who ■^aa Lady 
Superior in all social and domestic mat- 
ters, there really seemed no reason why 
h^ should not be. 

But Stella Blake! Like the Mordecai 
of old who sat al| the king's gale — she 
embittered all his happiness. Not that 
the girl opposed him, or was rude, or for- 
ward, or interfered in anything out of the 
line of her general duties ; <m/y— and this 
meant a good deal — only she went to 
Mr. Montford for instructions, and de- 
ferred to him in everything, which, seeing 
that he was master of the bouse wasna 
certainly anything so very deserving of 
blame to an ordinary observer. But Mr. 
DcVrioB wtMsn't an ordinary observer, Dy 

any means— there was nothing ordinary 
about him, you felt that instinctively when 
he looked at you with those strange, opal 
eyes, which, beaut'f j1 an] smiling^as they 
were, had a cruel, treacherous gleam in 
them, which seemed to belie the pleasant 
voice and the smiling lips. 

Ordinarily Mr. DeVries had no more 
difficulty in feeing through men and 
women, than he had through a bitof gh ss. 
Some were so very transparent that 
he felt a little sentiment of disgust toward 
them ; but Stella Blake went to the op- 
posite extreme ; she disgusted him, be- 
faint I cause she was so very opttq^e. Hecouldn't 
see as much as a hair's breadth past the 
inscrutable &ce and defiant eyes. Very 
naturally he didn't like it, and very natu- 
rally the desire to penetrate beyond the 
pretty mask became the absorbing wish 
of his heart. He didnt understand her — 
he didn't know what to make of her— but 
one thing was certain: it would do no 
harm to keep an eye on her, and th.B he 
fully resolved to do. 

Mr. DeVries, whenever it suited his 
pleasure, or purpose, made love to Althea 
Montford. tie had done this more or less 
ever since she was sixteen. He knew 
that she would never marry any other 
man while he continued to do it, and 
though he didn't particularly care to mar- 
ry her— at least, unless circnmstanoei made 



smile softened his lips and eyes— a faint, 
dreamy smi'e, which showed the thought 
was rather pleasant than otherwise. 

" You see if Viola had lived I should 
have hoped you would have liked each 
other. It would not have seemed like a 
stranger's coming into the family. Bat 
since that cannot be, Blanche is the next 
choice of my heart. But of course I 
don't expect you to please me, I only 
mentioned it because X fancied you were 
mutually pleased with each other, and 
Tom and I th:jught it would be pleasant 
to have it go. Tom likes you so much !" 

"I'm greatly obliged to him," Ralph 
said, with a laugh, " but I'm sure I don't 
know why he should; he doesn't know 

much about me — maybe that is the rea- , , 

son ! Well, now I am going to tell you ' it for his interest — it was rather g atifying 
what I attempted at first. There is a \>^ his vanity to know that he could twist 



girl — some sort of a waiting-maid, or ser- ' 
vant of some kind — at Mr. Montford's, ; 
who looks just as I have fancied Viola i 
would if she had lived to be a womin. 
She is very slight and fragile looking, but |

would serve his interest to have Alihea't

B ake f>bt(«ined too much influence over 
Mr. Montford, she could get her out of 



strength. You remember that peculiari- ' the house in some way. Inpumoance of

Viola— not 8«) much a res'.mblance as U) over and pushed, it away with one sweep 
what she was, as to what I thought she , of his white, firm hand. . . 



" Pardon me, Allie" his voice was low 
and thrilling, as he leaned over till hii 
breath touched her cheek—" but it is so 
seldom that I find you alone, that I am 
going to be very presumptuous, and ask a 
favor, namely: That you forego the 
pleasure of practising for an hour, and de- 
vote it to me. And, first, I want you to 
sing my old favorite, ' Annie Laurie,' and 
let me sing it with you. What do you 
sajr, ma bdle ?" looking down into her eyes 
with one of those sweet, tremulou 
smiles, which made his face so fascinat- 
ing ?' 

For answer she ran her fingers over the 
keys, striking out the tune. 

"No!" putting his hand over and 
stopping it. "I only want to hear tout 
voice. What do I care for that insen- 
sate thing? Anybody can pity 'Annie 
Laurie,' but I never care to hear them. I 
only c«re to hear y^ ; s ng it." Ah, how 
low and tender and thrilling his voice 
was ; 

Need I say the song was sung? Ii|e«d 
I say that a brighter coh.r came into 
Althea Montford's cheeks, and that the 
pale blue eyes grew sott and starry, and 
almost^ beautiful when his intense, thrill- 
ing voice gave force and meaning to the 
pathetic sweetness of the words? 

" There, don't ever ask me to listen when 
any of your friends sing th»t!" he said, 
drawing a long breath. " I want to keep 
this song sacred to you, and thia memoir' 

A step went through the hall — a light, 
tripping step, and grew familiar as it 
ascended the stairs, 

" Our new friend?" he half asked, half 
asserted. 

" Yes, I think so," she said, rousing her- 
self. Evidently she was more thoroughly 
steeped in the delicious trance which the 
song had inspired than her companion, 
and was not so alert for outside 8»>unda 

" Miss Blake is very pretty," he said, 
quietly. 

" 1 thought you liked fair women, and 
Stella is as dark as a mulatto, almost," she 
replied, sharply. 

"/do Use fair women— at least I like 
one" a tender smile lighting up his face ; 
" but, nevertheless, Miss' Stella is very 
attractive, and it would be well for us to 
keen it in mind." 

lliere wa« a meaning in his look and 
words that startled her. 

" You do not— »you cannot mean that 
he — that my father " — 

"Might be la-tinated?" he interrupted, 
smiling oddly, " I think that it certainly 
looks like it, my dear AJthea, though, of 
course I may be mistaken — I hope! am," 

" But he is so old." 

"Just ten years older than I. I sup- 
pose /seem so old to you, Allie; I am 
twelve years older than you — ^is that a bar 
between us .'" 

" O, no!" she cried quickly, coloring. 
" But he is so different from you." 

" Yes, I know ; he is rich, and I am 
poor." 

" You know I did not mean that, 
Alfred ! Y''ou know I never think about 
your circumstances," she cried hastily. 

He knew that it was true ; he knew that 
Althta Montford would marry him to- 
morrow (if he should ask her, which, as I 
said before, he wasn't quite prepared to 
do, under existing circumstances), and 
never think of it as a sacrifice, even if he 
had not a dollar in the world. 

" 1 know you do not, my darling," he 
replied, looking down into her eyes again 
with that sweet, tremulous smile lighiing 
his dark face. " But all women are not so 
unselfish- Your father is but forty -eight — 
not an old man by any means — not too old 
to be fascinated by a handsome face, if, in- 
deed, any man ever is." 

" But she — she could not care for Mm. 
Why, she is a mere « hild I" 

"Althea, did you never hear of a poor 
young woman's marry inga rich old man f ' 
he asked, laughing; "because if you 
never did, you are the only one in the 
world who has not. And did you sup- 
pose they always cared for the old fel- 
lows? Not theyl' 

" But I really do not believe papa thinks 
of marrying again. He has never seemed 
to think of it, and mamma has been dead 
more than fourteen years."

Animal logtiiict. 



Thb instinct of animals is sometimes 
really surprising. There was once in the 
possession of a farmer in Clonmel a goose 
that, by accident, was left without mate 
or offc-pring, male or female. Now it 
chaboed that the good wife had set a num- 
ber of duck's e^gs under a hen, which In 
due time were incubated, and of course 
the ducklings took to the water, seeing 
which the motherly old hen was in a sad 

fucker — her maternity urging her to fol- 
>w the brood, and her selfishness to re- 
main on dry land. In the meantime up 
sailed the goose with clack and clatter, 
which interpreted, meant " Let me take 
care of them." She swam up and down 
Willi _ tiiw jruujigstorB, »iul When they 
wearied of their aquatic excursions re- 
committed them to the guardianship o' 
the hen. In the morning down came the 
ducks. There was the goose, and the hen 
was in great flustration. On this occasion 
we do not know if the goose invited the 
hen for a friendly sail, but it is the fact 
that, being near the shore, the hen jumped 
upon her back, and iu c )mpany they cruis- 
ed up and down, as it were, convoying the 
feathered flotilla. Day aftt r day the hen 
on board the goose, mght be seen in per- 
fect on tent and good humor. Numbers 
of people came to visit thiatxtraordinarj 
occurrence, which happened r< ay after dsv 
until the juvenile excur8ioni8t<< arrived at 
the days of discretion, and, fully posted 
in maritime matters, no lortger neened the 
services of "goose and hen, pilots, in* 
stroctors," etc. 




▲ BATHKB amnsing incident occurred 
during the revidon of the National Guard 
at a country town in Prance. The y(<ung 
man who presented himself appeared to 
be quite deaf. The surgeon carefully ex- 
amined him, using all the tests employed 
in such cases, but the other remained 
mute. He was about to be transferred to 
the invalid list, when the surgeon, ss a 
final attempt, said, in a low tone of voice : 
" Your deafness exemptd vou from serv- 
ing; however, you will nave to appear 

here again on the of next month, in

a firmness of government and a vigor of rule

At one time a desperado confined in one of

man of strair reclining upon his couch as usual 
while the flogh and blood prisoner secreted

was more tLan a match for brutal force and 
the desperation of tho criminal seeking to flco

cell refusing to cease their profaue and boister- 
ous language, the deputy entered tbe cell and 
gave them n sound flogging with a whip until, 
with tears in their eyes, tho rascals promised 
better behavior. 

The last exploit of our deputy, and one 
which recalled to our mind the preceding inci- 
dents, was tbe taking of a prisoner to the Pt;n- 
itentiary a lew days sgo. A man who had 
been arrested for stealing a carpet bag at the 
Union Dcpcd in this city, last January, was 
sentenced, at tie last term of the Dii«trict Court 
to two yeani' iuprisonraent in the Penitentia- 
ry, and was talon to Fort Madison by Mrs, 
Latty alone, ard without <tny assistance rom 
I ing a cavity through which the air escapes | others, and duly delivered him to Warden 
One side of his face is bad- 1 Heisey. Ttie astonishment of the warden and 



housi-s as well as clean bodies. Wo believe it . 
was Horace Mann who was so fond of quoting i 
Whitfield's diet-im : "Cleanliness is nest to ! 
godliness." Some may think this would be an 
4-xcelleut mottJ for many householders to write i 
in bold letters, in old Hebrew fashion, on their i 
lintels and door-posts. So it would : but we 
suggest other appropriate places for the super- , 
fcription— over the doors of our biu-ine.-s ea' i 
tablishments,— School Ilou-ses and Churches, I 
•' last though not the least." We could not cx- 
|««'et these public places to be kept in so cleanly , 
condition as our private dwellings. Yet why ; 
not thoroughly clean them once in twelve ^ 
months? It is absolutely requisite in order to 
enjoy good health, " heaven's be)on," that the i 
air we breath should be sweet, pare and una- | 
dulteratcd. It is a sad mistake that in the ! 
planing and constructing of our j^ublic build- | 
ings, the means of proper ventilation should be ; 
almost entirely disregarded. There i." ceriainly j 
an ignorance of the laws of health in this re^ j 
gard. We have an example of this lack o I 
knowledge or wisdom in the construction of cur ( 
Church. During the revival last winter we ; 
had an exemj.lification of these facts. Before j 
nnother winter comes on let some means be in- I 
ttituted whereby our places of worship may be \ 
j.roperly ventilated, so that we may " Worship i 
Jlim in spirit and in the beauty of holiness." j 
At this icason of the year when every house- ^ 
hold is being renovated by the act of cl^sansing, ' 
Jtc , let us not forget our stores, ofiices, and | 
the Church. Perhaps the expression " W'nat 
is everybody's business is nobody's," may ap. 
ply in reference to the Church. Yet we bclicvo 
it is tho duty of some one to say it mn»t be 
attended to, and " Where there is a will there 
is a way" you know. It is a fact that our |

(.'en. Graut and His Malignert. 

Thb quiet way in which President 
Oraot gofs about his work, is u perpetual 
aggravation to Democratic editorial gas- 
conadera They are batHed at every step. 
No sooner have they invented and 
published a programme for the Af^minis- 
tratton than they find it has adopted 
something else, and by the time tl at is 
Well abused, they go off on some new 
tack, only to find that they neither know, 
nor have known anything on the subject, 
nor made a rational guess at it. This 
perpetual failure is humiliating ; some- 
iiiing has to be done to redeem their 
feeble sagacity from ridicule, and, as each 
failure develops itself they betake them- 
selves to a column or two of epithets to 
hide tbeir chaarin. This is the true ex- 
planHtion of aTl that rant the press spouis 
so copiously from time to time. 

Rational men take a difftrent view of 
the Administration. They know it com- 
menced its labors under extraordinary 
difflcuUies, and they were not silly 
enough to expect mirarles. They see a 
slow but steady advance made toward the 
Hftttlemtnl of great national problems. 
They see nearly restored order, peace, and 
prosperity throughouc the South. They 
see that the great victory of freedom ov«r 
slavery is fulJy achieved, and the question 
of ages settled. They see the national 
debt steadily diminishiag, and a purpose 
to adopt measures for its final extinguish- 
ment, as Will as for a proper reduction of 
interual taxes. They see apurpose to put 
the currency on a more mature and solid 
bast.s and to more fully equalize the bur- 
d> us oi the nation. And, in all this, they 
see a wise statesmanship, not attempting 
rash or startling projects, to magnify the 
pergonal importance ot some individual 
men, but the safe, if slow, measures of a 
real retrenchment, and a ru turn to the 
wiv«i of ecnni.mv, and solid prosperity 
for the whole people, 
fc Tije Democratic party managed so well 
whi^n in power, that it plunged the nation 
into a s ctional war, and as was to have 
been expected, took the wrong side in the 
contest. The Republican party have man- 
aged to restore pt-ace, good will, and an 
enduring prosperity ; and naturally took 
t c si<se ot liberty and progress. The 
Democracy are still looking bick to Bu- 
chanan's time as the em* odiment of their 
patriotism, and as the happy ena uf their 
higlRst efforts. The Republican party 
looks upon that time as one of national 
shame and disgrace — as the worst period 
in the his ory of the Republic -a scandal 
on ma- h'<^. and a libtl on the honor of 
the country. 

V\ nh huch diverse views, how can it be 
expected that the parties can agree on 
the present Administration? The anti- 
podes are not wider apart than Buchanan 
and Grant, and there is scarcely a publi" 
measure now that bears a resemblance to 
thosj when Democracy blossomed and 
bore fruit. Even measures of the same 
nature have grown to that magnitude that 
the Mmilanty is scarcely apparent. The 
Democratic legacy left the nation was war 
and debt. The Republican It-gacy will 
be p«»ce, but taxation to pay the Demo- 
cratic debt. Ilence it comes with ill- 
grace from that party to clamor about a 
d'bi ot their own creating, and a taxation 
of which they sowed the seed. 

The people may well congratulate 
themselves that they have a President 
who does nothing for show, but every- 
thing for the substantial interests of the 
country. All his "failures'" (?) have been 
successes, and he will leave his great of- 
fice Ir.mtnted by the honest and patriotic 
ma-sts <>f men of all parties. He has a 
tised and honest purpose, and a strong 
will tu do right, and all the jeers of the 
Democrtitio press w- 'n't move nim an inch 
from the path of rectitude he is follow- 
ing. — Chicoijo Bfpublican.

ever it wuz Bessary. Shortly afterward 
he wuz elected Alderman, he had a con- 
track for street cleanin, wuz made keeper 
of the butts uv muskets in one nv 
the Armories, and wuz, last year, a mem- 
ber UT the Legislacher. This last po- 
sisLen didn't soot him, as the other mem- 
bers from the city, knowin the intracies 
av the Legislach^n better, yoosed to get 
his vote uekently without payin for it. 
Wat he liked best wuz contracks for street 
cleanin. 'Twuz he wich taught me the 
mysteries uv that biznia. He wunst hed 
to bid close agin an unsofleticated con- 
tracktor, who supposed that streets reely 
had t > be cleaned, and 1 wuz surprized at 
the low figgera he took it at. 

" Patsey," sez I " yoo'l lose money on 
that contract It'll cost more to do the 
work than yoo get for it" 

" It is cussed low," he replied, " but ez 
we don't never do the work at all I kin 
live at it, ef I don't hev to divide too 
much." 

Patsey wuz an ardent friend of Ameri- 
ky and its instoosbns, partikerly the Dim- 
eferatic party. When he wuz put onto 
the Skoci Board and wuz at the same 
time in the Legislacher his heart biled 
over with love for his adopted country, 
and he was not backard in expressin it. 

" In wat other country than Ameriky, 
and in wat other party than the Dime- 
kratic," sed he, sobbin with emoshen, 
"cood I hev attained such grandjer? 
Why, hed I stayed in London I would hev 
been hung ten yeers ago." 

But Patsey's controllin pashun wuz an 
intense abidin hatred uv England. He 
waz a member of all the Fenian Circles, 
and colkc ed more money for Ireein Ire- 
land froai the tyranicle rool uv Eng- 
land than any man in Noo York. He 
alius wept when he thot uv the appreshun 
the Irish wuz a groanin under. But this 
feelin wuz eclipst by his hatred uv the 
nigger, ez an evidence uv wich I mite 
menshun tha' a circle uv wich he wuz a 
member aciily appropriated a thousand 
dollars wich they had raised to free Ire- 
land, to a fund to put down anti slavery 
agitashen in this country. Patsey his- 
self seriously contemplated at one time 
goin South that he mite hev a legal rite to 
kill a nigger. But he thought better uv 
it Hecot)d do it jest ez safely in Noo 
York. He led the Throat Slashers in the 
famous riots uv 1S63, and his wuz the 
hand wich put the torch to the nigger 
orphan asylum ; with his own good right 
hand he beat out the brains uv two nig- 
gers, and wept becoz two more that he 
had m a comer escaped him. 

His death is lamented by all uv the fre- 
kenters uv my house. Hed he lived he 
wood hev bin put upon the Police Board 
and the appointments he wood hev con- 
trolled wood hev saved his friends and 
partners a great deal uv trouble and mo- 
lestasben. Hed he bin on that Board 
English Bill wood not now be languishiu 
in a Basteel. The devoshun uv his friends 
t- tched me. It bein iniimatid that money 
wood be required to hev the proper 
masses sed tor the repose uv his sperit, 
every one uv his friends rushed out im- 
mejttly to procoor tnuff to do it hand- 
some. Two uv «n succeeded in goin 
through a drunken countryman wich 
strayed into this vicinity, and gettin a 
watch wich they pawned, and others for 
this pious purpose garroted a man within 
a square uv Broadway. Patsey's fucher 
is therefore ashoored. 

Out uv respeck for the deceest I shut 
my bar and put crape onto the do ir for 
jest an hour, wich wuz ez much greef ez 
I cood afford at that time. 

Peace to his ashes ! It is perhaps ez 
well that he went hentz. The Fifteenth 
Amendment is a reality, and hed he stayed 
he mite hev bin compelled to affilyate 
with niggers instid uv bustin uv em, and 
I doubt whether his nachtr cood hev en- 
doored so sudden and severe a strain. It 
is perhaps well for him that he died when 
he did, pertikelerly ez he hed jest paid 
his bill at my bar. He coodent hev gone 
at a better time.

Sixth Waju>, Noo Tosk 

Apru 30, ism 
A BUTE hez fallen onto the Sixth ward ! 
Last nite at precisely 3 o'clock this mom- 
m, fz near ez we kin learn. Patsey 
McQroggin departed this life. Dimocrisy 
hez lost a piller — my bar a constant and 
prompt paying customer, and Father 
McGrith a pariahner wich never refoozes 
his mite to religious purposes when his 
finanshel operaj-hens hed proved success- 
ful. Patsey MrGroggin is gone I He met 
his fate m attemptin to get out uv the 
area winder uv the house uv a bloatid aris- 
t(<crat in the upper part uv the citv. Pat- 
sey and a friend uv hizzen knrvwa ez En- 
glish Bill wuz in the house, when owin to 
alarm wich wuz made they become aware 
that they wuz considered in the lite uvin- 
trixiders. They hed gathered together a 
pocket boob, some gold watches, silver 
plate and sich, and wuz attemptintoleeve 
the house quietly, when Patsey wuz sezed 
bv the injordishus proprietor thereof. 
Patsey. in self def nee, kn<!Ckt him down 
with a billy, when the wretch levelled a 
pistil at him and shot him dead. And not 
content with this he procoored the arrest 
of English Bill on the charge uv burglary ! 
Thus two uv my customers is cut off at 
one stroke ! 

Pikl.-ey .McGroggin wuz bom in County 
Clare, Ireland, in the year 183:3. He made 
his appt arauce in public life in London 
in 1844, where he wuz arrested ez a pick- 
pocket, and by a prejocxlist jnry, wich 
bleeved the f-fatement uv a citizen, who 
svvore he saw him pick a pockit, he wuz 
senlencrd to a prizen for bovs. On his 
rel- ase Patsey went into partnership with 
a distinguished and brilliant burglar, and 
after a variety uv advenchers he found 
hisself in Botany Bay, his goin there in- 
Btfd uv bein hnng in Englan 1 bein a in- 
scrutable mystery wich he hisself wuz 
never able to solve. 

But Botany Bay wuz not destined to 
hold him. Kiilio a gnard or two he made 
his espApe on a whaler, and landid uv 
course in the City uv Noo York, wich he 
knew wus mostly settled and entirely con- 
tn Hed by that class uv his countrymen 
wich wood sympathize with one in his 
sitooiishun. Here his rareer wuz a bril- 
yant one. He imrafjitly jined the Dimo- 
cratic party to wich hisinstinks naterally 
led him. and he proved a useful and active 
member thereof. 

lie con»uieni ed first ez a humble re- 
peater, but the activity he manifested 
s<x)n made him a marked man. One day 
he voted twenty-eight times, aixl once he 
performed the astoundin feat uv votin 
six times at the same polls ! His knowl- 
edge uv pugilism and his skill in theyoose 
uv the rlub soon put him at the head uv 
a clun sJtrong tnuff to bid the poleece de- 
fiance, and his fucher wuz ashoored. 

Combinin politics with burglary he 
made a handsfirae livin by his owb efforts, 
lie was second in more than twenty prize 
tight.o, and wuz an enthuziastic patron of 
the rat pit. His pet tarricr, Dublin pet, 
trained by him, it will be remembered 
won the match agin Yaller McKee's doj 
Terror, wich resulted in a shindy be- 
tween the principals wich naturally re- 
sulted in McKee's d'ceese, for wich acci- 
dent and homjcide jist afterward he serv- 
ed two years in Sing Sing. An important 
election okknrrin and his services bein 
needed he wuz pardoned out. 

Ez the recognized head of the Sixth 
Wvrd Thn^t Slashers, ut course he heM 
many posishens uv honor and profit. 
Patsey and his friends carried Connecti- 
cut three or foiu years ago, and ez a re 
ward wuz put onto the School Board, 
Father McGrath backin his claims and 
■graeim to sign his (PataeT'i) name, whexi- 



Ths bells had just tolled the hour of 
11, and deathlike silence reiened, as Mr. 
Starke, the Clerk, entered and placed his 
books on the table. Judge Joynes was 
in his seat. Mr. Starke, leaning over the 
railing, was talking with him, while the 
rest of the judges were in the conference- 
room, not quite prepared to enter upon 
their day's duty. The counsel lor Mayor 
Ellyson, Messrs. Neeson and Meredith, 
had taken their seats and were ready to 
proceed to business. Ex Governor Wells 
and L. H. Chandler, Esq., were also in 
their places, and the reporters of the 
Enquirer, Dispatch, Whig, and State J(>vr- 
nal were at the desks set apart for their 
use and accommodation. Tke moments 
were spent in pleasant conversation by 
the spectators present. Various were the 
speculations as to the final result, when, 
all at once, a panel piece of ceiling fell, 
and then the girder, which is represented 
by the line of partition between the 
Clerk's office and the court room, gave 
way with an awful crash, and precipitated 
the spectators who were in the gallery of 
the court room to the main floor, and the 
additional weight in one single moment's 
time crushing the courtroom fif/Or 
through. The mass of human beings who 
were in attendance were sent, mingled 
with the bricks, mortar, splinters, beams, 
iron bars, desks, and chairs, to the floor 
of the House of Delegates, and in 
a second more over fifty souls were 
launched into eternity! The whole at- 
mosphere was thick with a dense cloud of 
duet from the plastering, and the human 
beings sent up a groan which will ring 
forever in the ears upon which it fell. In 
a moment, a few survivors clinging to the 
windows and fragments of hanging tim- 
ber, and the bare and torn walls, were all 
that remained to mark the place where, 
only a moment before there was a scene 
of life, vigor and hope. 

The scene about the Capitol building 
just after the sad occurrence was one of 
terror. The first notice that those who 
were in the building liad of the impend- 
ing evil was the premonitwy run^ling 
as the floor was settling. Then there 
came a fearful crash, accompanied by a 
cry of human agony and terror which 
smote the hearts of all who heard it In 
a moment the frightful situation was real- 
ized. "The few who had been so fortunate 
as to be able to get into the windows 
shouted aloud for help for those who had 
fallen, and called for ladders. In a short 
time the bells were tolling, and the hook 
and ladder truck being brought upon the 
spot, the ladders were put up to the win- 
dows, and the work of humanity began, 
The blinding dust within prevented any 
one from seeing anything, and the rushing 
of persons within the building and the 
cries of the wounded were all that could 
be heard. 

In the House of Delegates there was a 
scene that fairly made one's heart bleed. 
As the dust cleared away a little, a mass 
of timbers and rubbish of every descrip- 
tion was descried, and the reflection of 
the numbers of human beings crushed 
beneath its weight, dead and dying, was 
sickening. Add to this the cries and 
groans of those who were there, many in 
the agony of death, and there is a picture 
to m^e the stoutest hearts quail. The 
entire hall was flooded with the ruins, ex- 
cept the .space under the gallery. De»«ks, 
chairs and tables were crushed complete- 
ly, showing the force of the lalling wreck. 
The work of removing the dcbru was a 



thrown open, and within were soon col- 
lected the busy workers, who, amid their 
own shouts and the agonized groans of 
those they were seeking to rescue, were 
removing the timbers. As the wounded 
and dead were reached, they were brought 
out and placed in the Senate Chamber, or 
else under the trees in the square, where 
they were attended by our city physicians 
and others, who were on hand with such 
appliances as could be obtained. As the 
men were brought out, they were so cov- 
ered with dust that they could scarcely 
be recognized, and for a while the 
anxious inquiries of the by-standers, 
" Who is he ? " could not be an- 
swered. One by one they were borne out — 
the dead and dying. Here was one man 
gled and silently enduring, another crying 
aloud with pain, while the still form of 
a third told too well that its spirit had 
fled to another world. In one moment 
the gray hairs of age could be descried 
upon the head of some dead one, while Vn 
the next the tall, manly form of one who 
had been cut off in the full bloom of life 
was being borne past. It seemed as if 
sickoning horrors would never cease, and

its ghastly wounds, its horrible deaths, 
pictures to the mind no such scene as the 
one which was yesterday enacted in the 
square. — Richmond Di^atch, April 28.

At the seat of the Earl of Chichester 
(Eng.) a curious sight was recently avail- 
able. A hen had been in the habit of lay- 
ing her eggs in a dog kennel. She wanted 
to set, and was shut up. Meantime six 
puppies were bom in the kennel. When 
the hen was let loose she proceeded to 
the kennel and took charge of the pups 
as a mother would do with her chickens. 
She covered them with her wings, and 
scratched about to learn them to feed. 
She called them and the puppies would 
follow, and when any one offered to touch 
them she showed fight.

A tfiier Sketch of an Eminent Banker. 

As nations advanc-e in wealth and num- 
bers, and as their commercial affairs mul- 
tiply, the character of their private bank- 
ing firms become* of the highest impor- 
tance. 

Trade watches the manipulationa of 
those who handle it s medium of exchange 
with the keenest and most anxious scru- 
tiny. Di&trust in reference to the pro- 
cesses that transfer money is instantly 
felt to the remotest extremity ot the body 
politic, and in order to keep the latter in 
healthy action, the Sow must be pure and 
regular in a business point of \iew, and 
mubt sweep through nncontaminated 
channels. 

We have been les-d to these remarks by 
careful observation of some of our high- 
toned banking firm j, and the saving in- 
fluence which they have exercised over 
business by tbe excellence of their ex- 
ample. Among th^jse the house of Henry 
Clews & Co. has become emment, of late 
years, for those qu»dities that should dis- 
linenish the financial calling. 

Henry Clews, Es c[., the senior partner 
and head of this esteemed house— a native 
of England, and al out thirty-six years of 
age— came to the United States as early 
as 1849, with his father, whose heavy con- 
nection with Amtjrican trade gave the 
young man an immediate opportuuity of 
noting the active, enterprising and yet 
peculiarly practical tone of our people. 

The latter so won upon him that he de- 
termined to abandon the study for the 
ministry, which had been his first inten- 
tion, and betake himself to business. 
With this view he quickly sought and ob- 
tained a clerkship in one of the most 
prominent woolei). houses of the day, 
where his untiring industry for a proba- 
tionary term of nine years — his integrity, 
promptitude, intelligence, and, at the same 
time, his excelleni; personal habits and 
amiability of temp< rament, gave him solid 
pobitioD, and won For him, literally, hosts 
of friends. Mr. Wilson G. Hunt, the head 
of the house where he was thus employtd, 
bestowed upon him the highest marks of 
approval as his service lengthened, and, 
at last, when Mr. Clews sought an inde- 
pendent path, vouched for his ability and 
integrity. 

At the early a,?e of twenty five, Mr. 
Clews became a member of the enterpris- 
ing banking firm of Stout, Clews <& Ma- 
son. After one or two changes of title, 
but all the while rising in public esteem, 
the bouse is now established, and respect- 
ad, far and wide, under the title of Henry 
Clews & Co. 

The same energ^r, clear-sightedness and 
activity, which hai given the subject of 
our sketch his firs: success, attended him 
as he advanced. From dealing in com- 
mercial paper, he took up Government 
securities, when b eavy loans were con- 
tinually negotiated for the nation. The 
needs of the count ry were pressing, and 
in the patriotism and intellect ot Mr. 
Clews, found timely help. By his argii- 
ments and ready divestments, other capi- 
talists were encouraged to step forward at 
the moment when weaker heads and 
colder hearts were afraid to indorse the 
Union loan. To his example, Mr. Clews 
added the influence of personal represen- 
tation, and by his agreeable manners, as 
well as by the resources of his thorough 
business knowledjje, carried many a firm 
with him in the g<x;d work, which other- 
wise might have stood aloot His faith 
never swerved in the darkest hours of 
the country's trials, and as the clouds 
grew more sombe::, his enthusiasm only 
brightened. 

At length, in 1864-65, the Clews con- 
cern had raised it* business operations to 
several millions per diem, of which the 
National loan rectived a giwdly share. 

At last the war terminated, and Mr. 
Clews and his associates found themselves 
among the wealthiest and most distin- 
guished of American bankers. This posi- 
tion was easily maintained and steadily 
improved, until 186S, when all stock 
operations for members of the firm, either 
individually or col lectively, were, by writ- 
ten agreement, abandoned. As the coun- 
try, resuming its activity, began to breathe 
freely again, and t he busy hum of railroad 
preparation was heard from all quarters, 
making ready for a nerw development of 
national prosperity, Mr. Clews founJ fresh 
opportunities for beneficial investment, 
and of these his iiagacious mind and ac- 
quired experience made brilliant use. The 
national securities, which he held, were 
sold by him to an extent sufficient to set 
Iree a considerabls amount of the capital 
that he had placed in them, and these 
funds were, at on^i^, reinvested in railroad 
loans. At the present time, the Clews 
' firm are the fina acial agents of some of 
the most importa.at roads in the United 

States. 

The passing visitor in Wall street has 
but to glance at ttie busy throng which 
hurries in and ou'; of their spacious offices 
in the edifice formerly used by the United 
States Treasury, through the working- 
day, in order to feel satisfied that Mr. 
Clews has a large measure of public con- 
fidence and esteem. The impression is 
general, that when his name appears in 
connection with iiny projected improve- 
ment, all is well. Nor is Mr. Clews un- 
accustomed to express his financial 
opinions with tertneness and power. He 
wields a tranchart pen, and the highest 
financial intelle<:ts in the land have 
profited by his suggestions. 

Still in the prime ot manhood, Mr. 
Clews stands upo:i an eminence to which 
f»w others have been able to climb. Be- 
hind and around him lie beautifixlly 
ordered, the evi«lence of tmtiring exer- 
tions, that have Jiuetained and extended 
the welfare of thii country, and filled his 
own cotfers with well-earned rewards. 

The future brightens at his feet, full of 
noble opportunities. Who can doubt that 
the after-career of so gifted and valued a 
ciuzen will reflect still fairer hon^r upon 
• he naoji' of tbe Americ-an merchant, and 
the estimate in wiiich the world shall hold 
the characteristic tvpe of the American 
gentleman. — T/t» Aete York M0rcantiU

Missus. P. Davis ft SoH-Gentlemen : The pack.-ige 
of Allen's Lung Babam yon sent me to nse among the 
afflicted poor In my city missionary work ha."" proved 
very ac-eptable and nRe:til. It has gone Into several 
families, Hud with remarkabi*; effect In every Instance. 

One womB'^ ha* teen restored trom what n»T physl- 
clariK prononn'-ed conflunip'i' n, aiter scvera' months' 
slckte-'S vlth congh, great pain In the Inn.'B, an'l pros

assist In the support of her family, and with car-- and 
conrtnued use of the Balsam she expects entire rettor- 
atlcn. 

Aaothrr person, a yonng woman to whom I gare one 
bottle, has received gr at bc-efit, so that her congh, 
which was of months' standing, is getting better, ana 
she has parcbssed the second bottle, and baa every 
Indication of a speedy cure. 

A young man who was raising blood, and quite weak 
and sICK. has bv the ase of two b.')fles, been much 
Improved and la able to do a little at his work. 

A jaanz man to whom I recommended a trial of It. 
who li»« nad a bad couirh. and much pitn In his lungs 
for montns pB«t, and unable to get rest or s'epp, has 
comnitn ed taivlng It. and Is now using thp fourth 
bottle with great Iwnefit. H" said to m ! on a recent
