I I'roin Chambora' Jouriinl.
a 3ni)i)i.i:-AGi:i) i.on: stouy.
Thoy bad come, ft llttlo group of
friendly faces, to watch mo off, with
waving handkerchiefs and kindly good
bys, and I stood on tlio stern, nodding
and waving back, till tho steamcrswept
down tho river out of sight.
I know I should havo their prayers
that tho great sea might bo gentlo with
mo; I know they would watch tho
weather and look for the telegram of tho
arrival of our ship; yet I know I was
taking nothing from their lives, and
that they would each go homo hardly
missing mo; so it was with no great
wrench of heart that I saw tho pilot put
off from us, and took tho last look at
my nativo shores.
During most of tho passago 1 wasju3t
comfortably seasick, so I sot all tho day
long in a reclining chair on dcck.watch
ing tho whito caps on tlio purplo and
green and bltto waves that mounted and
fell down and up, up nud down, away
out to tho far horizon. I saw tho shin
ing nautiluses float by, now and then a
whale, or a shoal of porpoises, or a sail,
speeding whito and full across tho wa
ter. I axw also a good many other things
nearer by, for I didn't put my eyes in
my pocket along with my short-sighted
glas-e.s, and nobody was much likely to
mind a middlonged woman in hood and
Tho first thing I saw was nyoungigirl
with dark oyes and brown hair that
rippled itself into a tanglo of rough
curls whenever sho took off her not.
SIio v.w not so very pretty nor so very
brilliant; but thero was n piquant
charm about her that attracted half tho
passengers before tho first day was over.
By tho end of thosecond day ovorybody,
from tho captain to tlio ship's surgeon,
and from tho surgoon to tho cabin boy,
was eager to show her attention ; and
everybody was mot by tho samo gonial
smilo and lively retort.
Sho won hor way at onco into my
heart by tho kindly thought that led her
to bring iittlo rclishC3 from tho tablo to
tempt my sickly nppotltn, and tosootho
my forehead with bay-water, and gentlo
touches of her shapely brown hands,
where a great emerald glittered, encir
cled by diamonds, Very soon sho got
in tho habit of drawing her rug beside
my chair, nnd sitting on tho deck lean
ing ngainst mo, so that I might "pot
her," as sho said.
This was how it happened that my
quiet out-of-tlio-way corner camo lo bo
tho center of tho life and gaycty and
romauco of tho wholo shipboard.
It seemed that this young girl, Ko3n
Armour, was an only child, nud nn
orphan, going to nil ttitclo In Germany,
her nearest of kin.
"Dear heart 1 1 hopu her undo will bo
wiso as well as loving,"saitl I to myself
very often, for sho scorned too fragllo n
bubblo of humanity to drift on through
Tho tips of tlio brown curls wero
lighter than Iho rc3t ; and hero and
thero wero llttlo bright touches nil over
her hair, ns though tho sun was shining
in spots on it. Ono morning I sat coll
Ing these gleams of stinshino around
my fingers, nnd watching n llock of
Mother Caroy's chickens skim restlossly
over tho restless water, thinking theso
thoughts nbout Rosa, and having her
soft presenco alono to myself for a few
moments. Not many, howover; soon
camo up n Now Zenlander; of courso
thero wn3 a Now Zealander or an Aus
tralian on our boat
You aro very lowly, Miss Armour,'
said lie. "Let mo bring you a chair."
'Thank you; I prefer to sit hero on
my rug and havo Mi33 Wells pot mo,
replied Rosa, turning up her eyes lan
giihlly. "Tho deck Is my favorito scut
if I can only havo an excuso to sit on
"But you need something over you,'
persisted tho Now Zcalaniler, going
away, nnd coming back directly with
