A MINER'S LOVE STORY.
Xr.Li.Y Gi.oviiu wn.s tho ircttlcst
lass In tho pit village. Her eyes were
of tlio deeriest blue; lier cheeks wero
llkonrose; nnd you might have thought
her brown hnlr was the finest hIIIc. Then
she ha tin figure llko tt fairy, It was so
trim ; umi with a waist you coultl al
most span. 1 loveil Nelly, but ns for
that, all tho young chaps In the vlllago
were of tho sniiio mind, nml she might
havo had her pick of 111 ; tho worst of It
was, sho treated us nil nllko, and
wouldn't look nt one more than anoth
er. She had a smllo for everybody, and
was always good tempered, but there it
ended, and, somehow, 110110 of us could
screw up courage to try her1 future. I
tlon't know how often I thought it over.
It came Into my head tlio first thing In
the morning, nnd thero it remained the
last tiling nt night, when it kept me
awake, or haunted my dreams. At !
ltest it ttiok possession of me. No mut
ter where 1 was, digging, or blasting,
or tunneling nbovo ground, or down
In tho pit my thoughts turned on J'el-
ly, and from being tho merriest fellow
In tho village, I Jn,t cntiio toi bo ,tho
dullest. One morning thero was no
work III the pit for my gang, because
tho viewer wanted that part of tho soam
horod uii, and It struck mo all at onco,
that I would liavoit out with Nelly;
so I mado my.self smart, and sot oil',
walking as brisk as if it was a wager.
on may think Iteonveit in me, but I
can say that I was then as clever u elinp
lo look nt as you could often see and I
new It I For all that I began to walk
bit slow when I caught sight of -Mrs.
(Hover's cottage, and I felt a dread at
my heart, But I went on, and I Just
got tip to tho cotfago, when who should
iimiu out but Nelly herself. She never
looked prettier than at that minute;
hut, appearing so suddenly, sho dashed
my spirit, and I hadn't a wortl to say
"Why, Charley, what Is tho matter V"
he cried In n frightened sort of n way.
"Well. It Isjust this," I said. And
thero I stopped.
"Is nnything wrong with Jack V" sho
"Yes, ho is down In the pit and they
ay it is foul, which makes mother and
mo uneasy. You haven't heard any
thing'.'" And sho looked In my eyes
is If sho would search 1110 through.
"No, ho!" I answered, steadying,
now that I thought I could comfort
her. "Hols all right. You niiMi't
mind what tho old women of tlio vil
lage say, or you'll bo looking for a
blow-up overy tiny in tho year, when
there is nothing more than common, I
havii't eomu to you about Jack, Nelly,
it is aliout myself."
.She gave 1110 nnother look now ; then
her cheek Hushed up like a llame, and
her eyes turned away.
"Do you know what I want to say,
Nelly V" I went on. "1 wish you did
for 1 can't tell It: it Is more than I
have got words for. How I lovo you,
how you tiro always before me, how
am crazed and mad about you! Hut
though I can't say all I want to, hero I
stand, and I wouldn't change with it
king 11 you'll take mens 1 nm I"
"Ah, Charley ! you don't know how
you pain me," sho answered.
"Don't say that, Nelly, r doubted
about speaking to you, but now that I
have tlono It, now that I can't go on
deceiving myself, If' you havo any pity
In your heart show it to me. nnd I will
cherish you to tho day of my death,"
"It is no use," sho replied; "I can
never marry it pitman. I gavo tho
promise to mother nud Jack, when wo
walked up tho vlllago ut tho funeral of
my poor father and brothers all three
killed In tho mine our great sorrow,
which I can never think of without cry
ing." And tho tears, It Is true, were run
ning down her checks, though for a
minute, she seemed to bo harder than
stone. And I seemed turned to stoijo
myself, I had no recollection, no 1'eeU
lug and no sense, and 1 couldn't have
moved a step to savo my life. Then It
dll Hashed upon mo llko lightning
took u last look at Nelly, dropped my
head on my breast, nud without n word
iniii'ti walked out of tho gate,
Our village fcl'Idoni looked bright, no
matter how the sun shone, and I now
felt ns If tho sun would nuvcr shluo
ngttlu for mo; so, ns my eye fell on tho
cottugiw, with tho clouds hanging down
from nbovo ami nothing round but a
waste, I thought I might as well bo In
my grave ns continue to live there.
Hesldes, I should bo nlwnys meeting
Nelly, perhaps lurking about her moth,
er's cottage, anil making her as mi-era-bio
as myself. Why shouldn't I go
away, to Yorkshire, or to the diggings
In Australia, for that mutter? The no
tion, If it wns good for nothing more,
gave me a little spirit. It turned my
thoughts, nnd I stepped out brisker, go
ing straight home. I hadn't much to
nettle there, only to bid good by to the
folks I lived with, nnd 1 soon came out
pack on my back nnd begnn my tramp.
1 stopped at the moor und looked
back, remembering I might never sco
tho placo again, and dismal as 1 now
thought it, with Its gaping walls and
shaken roofs encumbering the blacken
ed ground, 1 iiad been happy there.
Not one of thoso tumbling cottages but
would open Its door to mo; not one
where 1 wouldn't meet n friend. And
there I had been born; It wns tho spot
on earth than even in the hour of bitter-n-.'ss,
I loved best, nnd 1 didn't turn
nway without dashing my hand over
I wns walking on when suddenly the
air was rent with n crash which shook
the ground, I know what it signified ;
such sounds denoto but one result in
tlio black country, and throwing down
my pack, I darted oh" to tho pit, with
the feelings that ani mate every miner
on such occasions.
It didn't seem a minute before I came
to tho dust-heaps around the pit's
mouth ; but somo wero thero before me.
nnd tho off-mon nud tho women wero
rushing up from thoviliago Innstream.
The smell from tho pit almost knock ed
mo back, nnd I had to get my breath n
lltfe, when thrco or four of us crept on
the mouth and looked down. Tho ex
plosion had destroyed the cage,not leav
ing a stick of it, but it hadn't injured
the signal ropo ; henco u means of com
munication remained for any one Im
mediately below. As soon as 1 saw
this I set to work to rig a cross-bar, and
presently had it ready.
"Just lower me gently," I said to
two banksmen. I may pick up ono or
two, if thero is tiny near."
"You can't g.) down yet," said tlio
viewer. "How many tiro there in the
"Half an hour ngo there were llfty."
replied the timekeeper; "but I nm
thankful to say they all came up but
"And they tiro all lost;" said the
viewer, "for there will be another ex
"I'll go down anyhow," I said dog
gedly, "und if nobody will lower me
I'll Jump down."
A good many were on the heaps now,
men nml women; some of the women
crying, nud some praying ; but when I
spoko out thnt way, (hero was tlead si
lence. Two or threo culled out "(lood-
liy, Charley. God bless you, jrnvo lad."
I Im bunk-man lowered mo down, and
I sunk through the pit's mouth. A
D.ivylainp was tied around my waist.
and I held a ropo 111 my hand, so that I
might signal to be hoisted up, if the air
became too foul. Hull hud no Inten
tion or going back till I had searched
tho pit.and seen If them were any alive.
One thing I didn't inro ..bout my life;
nnd another I would have been ashamed
to face the folks above without doing
something. Tim shaft hud never seem
ed so deep to mu before. I strained my
eyes Into tho darkness lielow, ami saw
no bottom, I glanced up, and tho gleam
of light above giewsinallernnd fainter.
I scanned thu walls of tho shaft, and
marked only their black bound. Hut
my progress was notilled by the increas
ing density of the air, which began to
allect my breathing; and as 1 went on,
I hud to shift my face from slita to side
to make n little current. At last my
feet touched ground.
I looked round, as 1 Jumped on the
saddle, and saw the furnace was out,
which put it stop to the ventilation
of the mine, as far as It depended
en the brattices, nnd no air entered
by the shaft. The stench was over
powering, ami, from this and the
silence, I guessed tho worst. It was
plain that tho explosion hud killed
tho hor-.es, for not n sound cunio from
the studies, which wero closo to tho
shaft, and what hope could there lie for
human beings in a distant part of the
pit '.' You may bo sure I didn't stop to
niako tlio-o reflections; they Hunted
across me, and I was working forward
before they got through my mind. I
knew tho old mine blindfold ; but what
with the gloom and my shortness of
breath, I was somo minutes scrambling
to the top of tho Incline, keeping my
nrms stretched out, ns I went along, to
feel for anything In tho way. And It
was lucky I did, or I should hiivo dush
ed my head against sumo empty trucks,
and in the statu I was In, that would
have finished me. Thus 1 reached tlio
Hist gallery which you could only enter
.-looping. 1 pushed open tlio trap, nud
went on a few steps, though my Davy
lump was what pitmen culled " nllro"
tho Hamu being all blue anil 1 knew
Hint tho atmosphere was so much gnu
powder. Hut I stumbled nloug; If 1
wasn't to save anyone, It didn't matter
what became of myself, nnd I pleased
myself with tho thought that Nelly
would hear that I hud died in thu at
tonipt.jgvVnd Ihciijnll at once, it came
into irsvncml what sho had said about
her Imither Jack being In the pit. This
K'tvubj my heart such u turn that 1 ipitto
stnggored, nud the perspiration poured
from my forehead llko water. 1 ru-Oied
forward as if 1 ivas mad my foot struck
something I bent down over what
seenied n corpse, and tho glo.im of tho
lamp fell on his face. It was Jack Olov
er, I didn't know whether ho was
nlivu or dead, but I caught III m In my
mine, and' with the strength of a giant
and tho speed of n deer hardly con
scions, hardly breathing I mado
dash for tho shaft.
It was easier work going back
when you wero unco In tlio main, or
horso-rond ; for now tho shaft was io
fore you Instead of behind; and, thougli
you wouldn't think It, this mado it woiv
derful dlll'erenco In the light. Dark as
pitch It still was, though not to it pit
man's eyes, and 1 had found out that
Juck breathed when I reached theshuft
Thiiillseovery nerved mo afresh, and
kept all my sensesnl work, without my
swiiiIng to know it. I only felt that
thero would soon nnother explosion. So
I placed Jack on tlio straddle, nnd tak
ing the cord from my Davylatiip, tied
him hand and foot, then pulled thu
signal, and us thu people above hauled
tho tackle, nnd lifted tho straddle from
tho ground, I hung on my nrms. Thus
wo began to mount the shaft.
It wasn't till we had got twenty feet
up that I felt tho strain of standing on
nothing, but, from Hint moment, it bo
eamojust terrible. My hands seemed
ready to snap the ncho In my arms
spread through overy musclo my head
spun round, nnd my feet kicked about
In agony. I watched tho mouth of the
pit till my eyes swam, and ns I reckon
ed tho space between them, wlillo my
strengtli waned nnd my misery deepen
ed,! thought I must dropboforo I reach
id the lop. Then they began to hoist
faster. I mustered nil my strength ; I
tightened my grip on the straddle,
though my fingers weregrowing numb;
I steadied my feet, ami hardly trusted
myself to breathe. I could seo tho walls
of t ho shaft ; I could feel tho purer air;
I heard voices ; nnd presently tho tackle
swung; nnd strong arms caught mo
around, and I wns innded on tho
They had Jack Glover off tho strad
dle before you could look nround, and
no was cnrrled nwny while they raised
my head and poured n littlo brandy in
my mouth. I called out for tho view
er. "What Is It, Charley Bnston 1" ho
asked bonding over me.
"K very body nwny from tlio pit, sir."
"You nre right," hoanswerod, It will
como In n minuto or two."
They got mo on tho top of tho bank,
when I heard n scream, and there wits
Nelly, trying to throw herself on her
brother Jack, but kept back by tho oth
er women folks. Sho never glanced
round ntmo! I wished then thnt I hid
stopped in tho pit, or let myself drop
irnm tlio bar ns I came up, nnd so es
caped seeing her agnin. Hut I mado up
my mind that I had looked on her for
tho last time. I told my helpers that I
could wnlk now, nnd when they let go
my nrms, turned towards the moor, in
tending to pick up my pack, nnd drug
on nt least to tho next village.
Jlut I could no more walk live miles
than I could lly. When I came to my
pack, I sank down by It, nnd felt that I
must glvo up. I wns so beat, though
thero was now another explosion nt the
pit, as I had expected, and though It
shook the ground under me, I didn't
lift my head. AU I thnuirht of wns
stretching out my arms nnd legs, and
lying quiet. How long I lay there I
never know. Hut, by degrees, I rreov
ered u little strengtli and my thoughts
took more shape, when I decided to re
turn to my old lodging, and have a
day's rest before I set out on my wan-

the next day, nnd I was still In lied, tho

putting on my things, when tho room

"I don't enro if I never smoke n pipo

"Now I'll tell you what it is," said
Jack, "You've been hnvlng a till' with

continued Jack; "but it's what I guess,

Did she know It before?" I nsked,
"Then I'll Just tell you all about her

I was n long time telling It, but Jack
sat up as if ho was listening ton pluy,
