with n sensation of intense cold. The spell
of slumber was so strong upon her that for a

place. The cao wns full of water. Her

her lips; nnd through the tremulous light
of the submerged nrchwny a strange shadow
began to go nnd come, to move and pause
and move again. Wns it fish or weed, or
some mysterious presence ? Did It come ac

Meanwhile on Ihe rocks above, n distract

The sobbing girls hung distractedly over

which the waves swung into tho cavern be

thing which might any moment wash out

men went for assistance and brought a cou

could anybody do?
"If the young woman has sense enough to

them said. "Not mors than two tides n year

They could but trust powerlessiy to her
steadiness of nerve and common sense.
"She's such a wiso thing," Helen sobbed

They all turned to look nnd some one said,

"Paul, my poor fellow, how can I tell you!

"In the grotto?"
"In Ihe grotto, Can anything be done?'
The young man staggered. The glow faded

A Louisiana correspondent of tha Si.
Aioirxii writes to that journal as follows :
The rescuo of a mule in llienville Parish,
La., from a well sixty feet deep, caused ho
much surprise and interest here lately that
senu an account to you.
It is vouched for by some of the best citi
zens of this place, who witnessed it, and I
assure you it is every word true.
Iliis inula fell hind-feet backward into an
old dry well sixty feet deep; it is supposed
that the edge ot tho well caved iu with him
All eflorU to rescue him wero fruitless, as ho
was completely wedged in. Finally, tho
owner of the mule, supposing that the poor
cre.i lire was severely injured by the fall, de
cided that it would be more merciful to havj
him killed than to allow him to starve to
death. Xot knowiug any other wuyofdis-
(itching him, he had a cart-load of dirt
thrown in upon him. Hut, iustead of allow
ng himself to bo buried alive, his muleship
quietly shook oil' tho dirt and pressed it
down with his feet; thus raisiug himself
several inches above his original position
Another load was thrown in with the same
result; aud then some said that if the mule
would continue tramping down tho dirt, it
was possible that he might be extricated ;
it would be no harm to try, auy way. Act
ing on this suggestion, ull the farm hands
went to work filliug tho well, carefully pour
ing tlio dirt in ou tho sides so as not to hurt
the mule. It was slow work filling that deep
well, but a heavy interest was awakened by
the perseverance with which the poor ani
mal tramped down the dirt,and ull worked
with willlug hands.
Slowly but surely, inch by inch, did he
ascend, until the great well was filled within
a few feet of the lop ; then as complacently
as il uolliing strange had hnppccd, his
muleship slopped out safe aud sound !

Augu-tiis dressed ami started for old
Junes' house. He changed his scat two or
lime times in thrt -trod car, and when lie
rc iihed the door steps 111' turned agaiu, like
a i'.jh' about to lie down ; hut 'twas no use.
He usually occupied a seat on the sofa
at Mary Jane's side ; hut that evening she
was inclined indignity, aud occupied an arm
chair a couple of yards away. She went
twice out of the room to dip her handker
chief in Cologuo water nnd tho second time

bsfort lie went to beJ, and naturally discov
ered nothing wrong exfcept the scent of the
roses r maiuing there still.
fin' when, three evenings latcr,he again
visited Mary Jane, the trick was repeated.
Old .l ines had taken pains to hide the Col-
ogno jottle nnrl everything else of that
character, so that the oflenso uf tho Lim-
erger could not bo Cologne, The fair
maiden stood it half nn hour, then sho faint
ed, and he called her folks. Sho was borne
to her room, and Augustus wns sent home.
Xext morning hereceived a highly perfumed
note (white rose was the odor it exhaled)
which told him that for the future they had
better be friends only, and tho next time sho
met him she hoped it would bo in the open
air, nnd she would try nnd keep to the w ind-
j.pril, nt its best, is tli-j tenderest of ten
der salads. Its type is the first sneer of
grass. Tho senses sight, hearing, smell
are ns hungry for its delicate and almost
spiritual tokens, as the cattle aro for the flist
bitoof its fields. How it touches one and
makes him both glad and sail I Tho voices
of tho arriving birds, tlio migrating fowls,
the clouds of pigeons sweeping across the
sky or tilling the woods, theelfm horn of the
first honey .bre venturing abroad in the mid
dlo of tho day, the clear piping of tho little
frogs in tho marshns at sundown, the camp
firo iu the sugar-bush, the smoke secnnfsr
rising over the trees, the tinge of green tlut
comes so suddenly on the sunny knolls and
slopes, the full translucent streams, tho wax
ing and warming sun, how these things and
others like them aio noted by the .'eager eye
and ear! April is my natal month, and' 1
am born again into new delights and now
surprises at each return of it Its namo has
an indescribable cliatm to me. lis two syl
lables are like the tho enlls of the first birds
like that of the Phoebe bird, or of the
meadow lark. Its very mows aro fertilizing,
and are called tho poor man's manure.
Then its odors! I nm filled by iu fresh
mid indescribable odors the perfume of thn
bursting sod, of the quickened roots and
rootlets, of the mold uuder the leaves, of
tho fresh furrows. Xo other month has
odors like it. Tho west wind tho other day
came fraught with n perfume that was to the
sens.) of smell what a wild and delicate
strain of music is to tho ear. It was almost
transcendental. 1 walked across tho hill
with my nosj in the uir taking it in. It last
ed for two days. I imagined it came from
the willows at a distant swamp, whose cat
kins were affording the bees their first pol
len, or did it come from much farther
from beyonJ the horizon, the accumulated
breath of innumerable farms ami budding
forests? The main characteristic of these
April odors is their uncloying frcshr"-x.
They are not sweet, they aro often bitter,
they nro penetrating and lyrical, I know
well tho odors of May uud June, of the
wjr.d of meadows and orchards bursting
into bloom, but they are not so ineffable and
Immaterial anil so stimulating to tho sense
as the incense of April,
One characteristic April feature, aud ono
that delights me very much, Is the perfect
meraldofthe spring runs while tho fields
are tt brown nnd sere, strips nnd patches
of the most vivid velvet green on the slope
aim in tuo valleys, limy the eve irraze
there mid is filled aud rolreshcd ! I bad for
gotten what a marked featuro this was until
I recently rodo in an open wagon for threo
days through a mountainous, pastoral coun
try, remarkable for Its fine spiings, Thoo
delicious green patches arc yet luuiyeye.
The fountnius flowed with May. Where no
sprlugs occurred, there wire hints uud sug
gestions of pruif,s about the fields and by
