11 1 Gil WATER MARK.
A Thrilling AH venture on Dtdlow Marsh.
BT BRBT HABTE.
Let me reoall a story which nerer failed to
recur to my mind in my long gunning excur
sions upon Dedlow Marsh. Although the
event was briefly recorded in the county
paper, I had the story, in all its eloquent de
tail, from the lips of its prinoipal actor. I
cannot hope to catch the varying emphasis
and peculiar coloring of feminine delinea
tion, for my narrator was a woman; but I'll
try to give at leaat its substance. .
She lived midway of the great elongh of
Dedlow Marsh and a good size river, whioh
debouched four miles beyond into an estuary
formed by the Pacific Ocean, on the long
Bandy peninsula which continued the north
western boundary of a noble bay. The house
in which she lived was a small frame cabin
raised from the marsh a few feet by stout
piles, and was three miles distant from the
settlements upon the rirer. ller husband
was a logger a profitable business in a coun
try where the principal occupation was the
manufacture of lumber.
It was the season of early spring, when her
husband left, on the ebb of a high tide, with
a raft of logs for the usual transportation to
the lower end of the bay. As she stood by
the door of the little cabin when the voyagers
departed she noticed a oold look in the south
eastern sky, and 8he remembered hearing her
husband say to his companions that they
must endeavor to complete their voyage
before the coming of the southwesterly blow
which he saw brewing. And that night it
began to storm and blow harder than she had
ever befoie experienced, and some great trees
fell in the forest by the river, and the house
rooked like her baby's cradle.
But however the storm might roar about
her little cabin, she knew that one she trusted
had driven bolt and bar with his own strong
band, and that had he feared for her he would
not have left her. This, and her domestio
duties, and the care of her sickly baby, helped
to keep her mind from dwelling on the
weather, except, of course, to hope that he
was safely harbored with the logs at Utopia
In the dreary distance. But she noticed that
day, when she went out to feed the chickens
and look after the cow, that the tide was up
to the little fence of their border patch, and
the roar of the Burf on the south beach,
though miles away, she could hear distinctly.
And she began to think that she would like to
have some one to talk with about matters, and
the believed that if it had not been so far and
stormy, and the trail so impassable, she would
have taken the baby and gone over to Back
man's, her nearest neighbor. But then, you
see, he might have returned in the storm, all
wet, with no one to see him; and it was a
long exposure of baby, who was croupy and
But that night, she never could tell why,
flown. The storm had somewhat abated, but
he still "sat and sat," and even tried to read.
I don't know whether it was a Bible or some
profane magazine that this poor woman read,
but most probably the latter, for the words
all rui together and made such sad nonsense
that she was forced at last to put the book
down and turn to the dearer volume which
lay before her in the cradle, with its white
initial leaf as yet unsoiled, and try to look
forward tn ita mrstnrinTia fnt.nra And tnlr
ing the cradle, she thought of everything and
everybody, but still she was wide awake as
It was searlv twelve o'clock whan nha at
last laid down in her clothes. LTow long she
slept she could not remember, but she awoke
with a dreudf ul choking ia her throat, and
found herself standing, trembling all over, in
the middle of the room, with her baby
clasped to her breast, and she was "saying
something." The baby cried and sobbed, and
she walked up and down trying to hush it,
when she heard a scratching at the door.
She opened it fearfully, and was gla 3 to see it
was only l'ete, their dog, who crawled,
dripping with v .ter, into the room. She
would like to have looked out, not ia the
faint hope of her husband's coming, but
to see how things looked; but the wind
shook the door bo savagely that she could
hardly hold it. Then she Bat down a little
while, and then she lay down again a little
. while. Lying close by the wall of the little
cabin, she thought she heard once or twice
something scrape slowly against the clap
boards, like the scraping of branches. Then
there was a little gurgling sound,' "like the
baby made when swallowing;" then some
thing went "click-click" and "clack-cluck,"
so that she sat up in bed. Whea she did so
she was attracted by something else that
seemed cietping from the baok door towards
the centre of the room. It wasn't much
wider than her little finger, but soon it
swelled to the width of her hand, and began
to spread ell over the floor. It was water.
She ran to the front door and threw it wide
open, and saw nothing but water, the ran to
the back door, and threw it open, and saw
nothing but water. Then she renumbered
bearing her husband once say there was no
danger in the tide, for that fell regulaily, and
people could calculate on it; and tuat he
would rather live on the bay than the river,
whose banks might overflow at any time.
But was it the tide ? So she ran again to the
back door and threw out a stick of wood It
drifted away toward the bay. She scoopel up
some water and put it eagerly toward her lips.
It was fresh and sweet. It was the river, nd
not the tide !
It was then O God be praised for Eia
goodness ! she did neither faint nor fall; t
was then blessed be the Saviour, for it wag
His merciful hand that touched and strength
ened her in this awful moment that fear
dropped from her like a garment, and her
trembling ceased. It was then and there,
after that she never lost her self-command,
through all the trials of that gloomy night.
- She drew the bedstead toward the middle
of the room, and placed a table npon it and
on that she put the cradle. The water on
' the floor was already over her ankles, and the
, bouse once or twice rocked so that the
closet doors all flew open. Then she heard
the same rasping and thumping against the
wall, and looking out saw that a large up-
rooted tree, which had lain near the road at
the upper end of the pasture, hid floated
down to the' house. Luckily, its long roots
dragged in the soil and kept it from moving
as rapidly as me current, for had it struck
the house in its full career, even tie strong
nails and bolts in the piles could not have
withstood the shock. The houud had leaned
npon its knotty surface, and crouched near
the roots shivering and whining. A ray of
hope Hashed across ner mmd. She drew
a heavy blanket from the bed, and wraoDino-
it about the babe, waded in the deepening
waters to the door. As the tree awnncr asain.
broadside on, making the littl cabin trem
ble, she leaped on to the trunk. By God's
mercy she succeeded in obtaining a footing
on its slippery surfaoe, and, twining an arm
about Us roots, she held in the other her
moaning child. Then something crocked
near the front porch, and the whole froat of
the bouse she had just quitted fell forward.
Jsst as cattle fall on their knees before they
ie down, and at the same moment the great
redwood tree swung around and drifted away
with ita living cargo into the dark night.
For all the excitement and danger, for all
her soothing of her crying babe, for all the
whistling of the wind, for all the uncertainty
of her situation, she still turned to look at
the deserted and water-swept cabin. She
remembered even then, and she wondered
how foolish she was to think of it at that
time, that she wished she bad put on
another dress and the baby's best clothes:
and she kept praying that the house would
be spared so that he, when he returned, would
have something to come to, and it wouldn't
be quite so desolate, and how could he ever
know what had become of her and her baby ?
And at the thought she grew sick and faint.
But She had something else to do besides
worrying, for whenever the long roots of her
ark struck an obstacle, the whole trunk made
half a revolution, and twice dipped her in
the black water. The hound, who kept dis
tracting her by running up and down the
tree and howling, at last fell off at one of
these collisions. He swam for some time
beside her, and she tried to get the poor
beast npon the tree, but he "aoted Billy"
and wild, and at last she lost Bight of him
forever. Then she and her baby were left
alone. The light which had burned for a few
minutes in the deserted cabin was quenched
suddenly. She could not then tell whither
she was drifting. The outline of the white
dunes on the peninsula showed dimly ahead,
and she judged the tree was moving in a line
with the river. It must be about slaok water,
and she had probably reached the eddy formed
by the confluence of the tide and the over
flowing waters of the river. Unless the
tide fell soon there was present danger
of her drifting to its channel, and
being carried out to sea or crushed in the
floating drift. That peril averted, if she
were carried out on the ebb towards the bay,
she might hope to strike one of the wooded
promontories of the peninsula, and rest till
daylight. Sometimes she thought she heard
voices and shouts from the river, and the
bellowing of cattle and bleating of sheep.
Then again it was only the ringing in her
ears and throbbing of her heart. She found
at about this time that she was so chilled and
stiffened in her cramped position that she
could scarcely move, and the baby cried so
when she put it to her breast that she noticed
the milk refused to flow; and she was so
frightened at that, that she put her head
under her shawl, and for the first time cried
When she raised her head again, the boom
of the surf was behind them, and she knew
that her ark had again swung round. She
dipped up the water to cool her parching
throat, and found that it was as salt as her
tears. There was a relief, though, for by this
sign she knew that she was drifting with the
tide. It was then the wind went down, and
the great and awful silence oppressed her.
There was scarcely a ripple against the
furrowed sides of the great trunk against
which she rested, and around her was all
black gloom and quiet. She spoke to
the baby just to htar herself speak, and
to know that she had not lost her voice.
She thought then it was queer, but she
could not help thinking it how awful
must have been the night when the great
ship swung over the Asiatio peak, and the
sounds of creation were blotted out from the
world. She thought, too, of mariners cling
ing to spars, and of poor women who were
lashed to rafts, and beaten to death by the
cruel sea. She tried to thank God that she
was thus spared, and lifted her eyes from the
baby, who had fallen into a fretful sleep.
Suddenly, away to the southward a great light
lifted itself out of the gloom, and flashed
and flickerd and flickered and flashed again.
Her heart fluttered quickly against the baby's
cold cheek. It was the lighthouse at the
entrance of the bay. As she was yet wonder
ing, the tree rolled a little, dragged a little,
and then seemed to lie quiet and still. She
put out her hand and the current gurgled
again6t it. The tree was aground, and by
the position of the light, and the noise of
the buif, eground upon the Dedlow Marsh.
Had it not been for her baby, who was
ailing and croupy, had it not been for the
sudden drying up of that sensitive fountain ,
she would have felt safe and relieved. Per
haps it was this which tended to make all her
impressions mournful and gloomy. As the
tide rapidly tell, a great nock or uiacii brent
fluttered by her, screaming and crying.
Then the plover flew up and piped mourn
fully as they wheeled around the trunk,
and at last fearlessly lit upon it like a
gray cloud. Then the heron 'flew over
and around her, shrieking and protesting, and
at last dropped its gaunt legs only a few
yards from her. But, strangest of all, a pretty
white bird, larger than a dove like a pelican,
but not a pelican circled around and around
her. At last it lit upon a rootlet of the tree,
quite over her shoulder. " She put out her
band and stroked its beautiful white neck,
and it never appeared to move. It stayed
there so long that she thought she would lift
np the baby to see it, and try to attract her
attention. But when she did so, the child
was so chilled and cold, and had suon a bine
look upon the littlo laskes, whioh it did not
raise at all that she screamed aloud, aud the
bird flew away, and she f aimed.
Well, that was the worst of it, and perhaps
it was not so much after all, to any one but
herself. For when she recovered her senses,
it was bright sunlight, and dead low water.
There was a confused noise of guttural voices
about her, and an old squaw singing an In
dian "hushaby," and rocking herself from
side to side, before a. fire built on the marsh,
before which she, the recovered wife and
mother, lay weak and weary. Her first
thought was for her baby, and she was
about to speak, when a young squaw,
who must have been a mother her-
Eelf, fathomed her thought, and brought
her the "mowitch," pale but living,
in such a queer little willow cradle, ail
bovLd up, just like squaw's own young
one, that tie laughed and cried together, and
the young and old squaw showing their big
white teeth, and glinted their black eyes, and
said. "Plenty cet well, skeena mowitch; wag-
gee man come plenty soon," and she could
have kissed their brown faoesin ber joy. And
then she found that they had been gathering
berries on the marsh in their queer, comical
babkets, and saw the fckirt of her gown flutter
ing on the tree from afar, and the old squaw
couldn't resiht the temptation of preonring a
new garment, and come down and
discovered the "wagee" woman and
child. And of oourse she gave the gar
ment to the . old squaw, as you may
imagine, and when he came at last and rushed
up to ber, looking abeut ten years older in
bis anxiety, she ftlt so faint again that they
had to carry her to the canoe. For, you see,
he knew nothing about the flood until he met
the Indians at Utopia, and knew by the signs
that the poor woman was his wife. And at
the next Lien tide ho towed the tree away
back home, although it wasn't worth the
trouble, and built another honse, using the
old tree.Jor the foundation and props, and
called it after her "Mary Ark !" But you my
guess the next house was built above high
water mark. And that's all.
Not much, perhaps, considering the male
volent capacity of the Dedlow Marsh. But
you may tramp over It at low water, or pad
dle over it at high tide, or get lost upon it
once or twice in the fog, as I have, to under
stand properly Mary's adventure, or to ap-
Ereciate duly the blessings of living beyond
