This was the liisl time in many months she had felt really fno; freo to be silent, to look sad, to cr) il" she wished. What a luxury it was I Xu aniom mother to watch her, thise cnmpuiative strangers withdrawn, his cool, d.irUinir silence, it was delicioii". There was sum thing in tho very nature of her trial which in.ido it necessary to veil hur grief with re rve. A bhek dress sho might wear r.i.il was a cousin, and soma s-lnw is nllowd fir second cousinhood even and for intimato friendship, such us theirs has been. Hut no one knew tho unnvowed ngiigeinent which hound them since the lurried fan well letter in which his lovo found utterance, and which only reached after he had sai'.id the sailing from which there was to bo u leturn. Xo one knew n they talki d compassionately of her hav ing had .1 drc.idful shock, poor girl, her own eniisjn, you know, ami such n iius young f'-llon Mint Iter heart was wearing widow's weeds, and mourning its dead ns tho great loss of lite. It wouldn't hear talkiu g abuut so tho kept silent, and tried to wear brave lace. Left ulunu, she found with some surprise that she didiilt want to cry. All that morn- ho hud felt that lo creep away some where and Vitep, and weep hir heart out, would l so;:td; but tears are contrary things, flic sat there dulled into u calm, that Ans nine st content. Sho was think ing ot Ihn time l'aul had visited the island and climl'id about thai very cave. On that very t ck wluro six sat he might per haps h avo res'cil. riho liked to think so. It brought hi. m luurer. A little later slie.put her sketch nway and crept down to a biond ltdpe, where through tho arch, tho exquisite sky lino was visi ble. Tlin surf tumbled and clilui ed liko distant hells. She lay ns if fasciua led, her eyis fixtd upon the shilling hori zon, buma wlnru l.ir beyond it was the snot where tho ship which held her all went ilowu. Down where if ller imagination ran riot. Clemiu ihe liquid depth to Inmost sanctuary ul t c i cum, sho saw the golden sands, the .diadmiy green light percolating tliruugu miles nt water tho everlasting ra poju which Kilned there beyond tho reach pf wind, htuimnr hurricane, Shu tried to fix Iho uoiulu'i.! images, nnd to think ot it as it heavcu un hrs tranquil than tho quiet mounds un.h r which ore pillowed beloved heads on eurih. lint it would not stay. l hnughta il tempest aud fury, or chill pip ing winds whipping tho foam from tho waves, ot rt i r and tumult, and of a ueaV' lug nJlucru o I dark waters cams over her, nnd through nil the refrain of Jean In gclow's pathetic strain both mixed nnd blended, "And shall I -ce thee no morn Till tho sea gives up Its dead?'' Orent drops forced themselves beneath the closed eyelids, nnd she sohbedout: '0, l'aul, Paul I how enn I bear it?' Aud then sho thought ns she had thought before, how glad she would he to die 1 lAfe didn't seem desirable nny longer, unci it would be blessed to be with Paul, even nt the bottom of tho dark, deep ocean. And thinking thus the long eyelashes drooped more and more heavily; peace fell upon brow and lips; she was asleep nsleep and dreaming n sweet joyful dream. She awoke with n sensation of intense cold. The spell of slumber was so strong upon her that for a moment she did not realize what had taken place. The cao wns full of water. Her feet nnd the hem of her dress were already wet. The roar of the waves benenth the hardly distinguishable nrchwny told them that the tide had surprised another victim, nnd already the avenue of eseapo was barred. Was this the answer of somo unbroken prayer. Tho thought flashed over her. Had she really prayed for death ? Hero it wns, close at hand, and sho wns conscious of no glad nessonly a distinctive desire for life. It was loo dreadful to be drowned in tho hole and washed away liko a weed. Life wns worth living after nil. Hnd somebody said, or wns she dreaming, Mint a portion of tho caye wns untouched by water ? She could not remember, but now she searched about for some indication. Ah, surely this wns one a cork, a scrap of pa per lodged on tho higher shelf, fragile things which a tide must inevitably have washed away. With that instinct of prop erty which survives shipwreck nnd fire, she collected her drawing materials and other little belongings, anil retreated to this possi ble place of refuge, wrapped her cloak about her, nnd with folded hands satdowntouwait her fate. The cave was full ol pale, green light. It wns beautiful to see, as the advancing flow rose, ledge after ledge, nnd flooded the fairy pools, how each star flower and sea urchin, each crimson -ind golden weed, trembled anil quivered as with delight at its refresh ing tiiueh. Knell anemone threw wide its petals and expnnderl into full blossom to meet tho spray baptism. Xo mortal eye ever looked upon a sight more charming; but its beauty was lost to the shivering and terrified girl. The doorwny had quite disappeared, Sharp spray dashed against her dress. The drops struck her face. She shrank nndclung more tightly to the rock. A prayer rose to 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 companied by life or death? Meanwhile on Ihe rocks above, n distract ed group wero collected. The party hnd como gayly back from the "Heads." Mr. Gray, ignorant landsman though he was, had grown uneasy, and hurried them away. Ar rived at the "Grotto," the full extent of the calamity was nt once evident. Tho boy hnd mistnken the tide How or ebb aud the only hope was that Esther, discovering her danger it time, had taken refuge nt tho cot tage near by. Thither they flew; but, as wo know, in vain. The sobbing girls hung distractedly over tho clir, listening to the hollow boom with which the waves swung into tho cavern be neath, sickening to think of the awful some thing which might any moment wash out ward on the returning billow. The gentle men went for assistance and brought a cou ple of stout fishermen to the spot. Itut what could anybody do? "If the young woman has sense enough to climb up to the right baud corner aud sat still it wont hurt her none, perhaps,' one of them said. "Not mors than two tides n year gets up there." "Oh! if lMher liadon'y been told that! They could but trust powerlessiy to her steadiness of nerve and common sense. "She's such a wiso thing," Helen sobbed out. So they waited. A rattle of wheels came from the road. They all turned to look nnd some one said, 'Perhaps its a doctor!" Though what earth ly Use a doctor could have been would bo hard to say, rV figuro was rapidly coming up tho path a young mau. Nobody recognized him. till Dr. Gray started forward with tho face of one who sees a ghost. "Paul ! Good God! Is it possible!" "Yes, doctor,' with a haty hnnd shake. "Xo other, I don't wonder vou stare." "Hut in heaven's name how has it como auout i ncre nave you been since wo gave you up for lost 1" "It's a long story. You shall hear it some day. Hut' rapidly forgive my im patiencewhere is my cousin, and what is the matter?" There was a dead silence. At last with a groan, Dr. Gray spoke. "Paul, my poor fellow, how can I tell you! l'.stlier Is below there." "In the grotto?" "In Ihe grotto, Can anything be done?' The young man staggered. The glow faded from his face, leaving him ashy pale. For a moment he stood irresolute, then ho nrous' en unwell, ami ins voice, though husky, was lirm : "It is a frightful place: still there is no absolute danger if she keeps her presence of mind. I staid thero over a tide once my. sell, Just to see It. Is your boat at hand?, to one of the fishermen. "Yes sir." "Fetch it around then, is quickly as poi' siuie. men lo ie, uray : "l shall row thero opposite the entrance and make a dive for It. If I come up inside it Is all right and I'll see that no harm happens to Esther till the water falls and we get out." "But tho risk 1" "There is tho risk of Btrlklng the arch as I rise that Is all. Pin a good swimmer, you know. I think it can be dotie. You can guess," with a sort of a palo smile, "how I have been counting on this meeting; and to leave her alone Is simply Impossible. I shall manage it never fear," Tho boat came. They saw it row out Paul taking the bearing carefully, shifting positions once, and yet again, before satis lied, then looked up with bright, confl dent eyes and a nod, and clasped his hand; over his head. A splash lie was gone, aud the water closed over lutn. Within the cave Hither watched the strange, moving phantom which darkened the entrance. Tho splash reached without startling her, and In another instant a flash ing object whirled down nnd Inward, nnrl rising, tho 'waves revealed a face a white face with wet hair, In the pale, unearthly glow It wore iho nspect of death. It drew nearer; she covered h:r face with her hands. Was thesea giving up Its dead, that here, In this fearful solitude, the vision of her drown ed Paul confronted her or was she going mad ? Another second, and the hands were with drawn. The peril, the excitement of the past hour, tho strangeness and uureality of the spot, combined to kindlo within her nn unnatural exalation of feeling. Had she not craved this 1 If they met ns spirits in this land of spirits, was sho to bo afraid of Paul, or shrink from htm? Xo, a thousand times no. , Tho face was closo upon her. With rapid strokes it drew near a form emerged it was upon the rocks. With a shiek, she held out her arms. Cold hands-clasped hers a voice (did dead men speak.?) cried "Quen ie, Quemlel The old pet name I It was Paul's ghost, but none the less Paul. "I know y are defd," sho said, "but I'm not afraid of you," aud felt unterrified as a strong arm enfolded her. Put tho breast upon which her cheek rested was throbbing with such vivid pulsations that, half roused, sho began to shudder in a terrible blended hope and fear, aud she shrank away from his touch. "Oh, Paul I are we both dead, or only you? Is this the other world ? "Why darling," gently seating her on the rock, "you aro in n dream. Wake up, love ; look nt me, Ksthcr. I am not a dead mau, but your living Paul. Keel my hand it is warm, you see. God has restored us to each other; nnd upw, if his mercy permits, wo will never be parted again." "l'aul 1 Paul!'' cried Esther, convinced at last. They were very happy. Prosy lolks could they have looked In would have seen only two exceedingly wet young people seated high on a rocky ledge, receding wa'ers rip pling about their feet, hut they, all aglow with life and happiness, scarcely knew of tho lapse of time before the shimmering line of light appeared nt the mouth of the cave Willi blessed tears streaming down her cheeks Esther heard his story ; how, picked up the sole survivor of that dreadful wreck by an India-bound trailer, her lover had lain delirious many weeks in a far laud un able to tell his name or story; and in part recovered, started at once for home and land ed in advance of the letters which told of his salety. And so they had met here 'mid cor al anil tangle and alomoiidine,' as she heard the story of his perils Esther clasped the hand she held as if she never again could let it go. That provident littlo Helen bless her heart! "huilded better thau she knew,' in having such a store of damp sandivitches nnd refreshing wine for those drenched ami happy lovers. Aud when at last the reced ing tide opened agaiu the rocky gate aud the ista of the sea tinged with rosy sunset, nnd Csther, nided by strong arms, left her pris on it was with a glow liko the sunset upon her cheeks, and in her eyes such n radiance of happiness Mint it fairly dazzled the for lorn, hedragged group above. Mrs. Gray embraced her Ifondly and fell into a fit of ong deferred hysterics. Tlio boys executed war dauco of congratulation, and Helen and Isabel laughed and cried for jov. And as Esther turned with Paul for a last look at the scene of their deliveranco the ,'chimes and murmur of theseaeemed full of bless ing the blessing of tho dear Lord who had compassion upon her weakness, restoring her to life, and to that life its lost joy. With thankful heart she went her wnv. 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 ! A celebrated vocalist, whoso demeanor and action were as awkward and ungainly as hli voice was beautiful, said ono day to Shanes ISannlster! 'Do you know what made my voico so melodious?' ,No,' re plied Ilannister. 'Why, then, when I was fifteen 1 swallowed hy accident some train oil.'

Somebody praised a kind of cake Jones brought down to his ollica 'He was asked for the recipe for building tne cake, and next day appeared with tho following, which his wife dictated, after dluner; "Seven cups ot molasses, three pinches of flour, two heaping quarts of sal aratus, a pint uf sugar, two pounds of milk, fruit to suit taste j stir well and boll over a slow fire lor three hours, nnd then set aside ill a cohl oven for a week." Somehow. Jones said It didn't sound just right, but mat was tue way Ul cote read. How Anguslus host his (1 1 rl. Some months ago, a youth of this or some other city, says the Chicago Iribune, took a fancy to a fair Indy, nnd began to be polite to her. He met her when lie could at par- tics nnd that sort of thing, and occasionally ho called to see her at home. She liked the young man, and smiled sweetly whenever his name wns mentioned. Uo was Augus tus and sho was Mary June. Augustus wnsu't worth n cent financially, but lie hnd a capital of hope that surpassed the treasury of tho First Xationnl Bank. Mary Jane had a father whose narno was Tones. Ha didn't fancy Augustus, and didn't liko to have him spooning nround M.iry.Tatio, Put ho was a shrewd and sen sible oid duffer, and knew that if he raised his voice in opposition that Mary Jane's liking would he strengthened into red-hot, diamond pin, flat footed lovo. Bo he kept still and pondered, and then hn hit on a plan to smash tho courtship of Augustus into smithereens. At the boarding house where Augustus lived, there lived also two youths of his age and sex, who wero as full of mischief as a caucus is of seekers for office. So papa Jones went to them and unfolded his plans, and o He red them ten dollars each to bring about a succeiful end. Within a week thoy had tho money Htid.this is how they earned it : Augustus wns to call on Mary Jones that evening, so of course ho put on his best clothes for tho occasion, Half an hour be fore ho went to his room todress, his friends went there and took his best coat from the wardrobe. They ripped open the lining fie twen the shoulders and put inside a couple of very thin slices of Limbcrgcr cheese. You know what that is if you have any knowl edge ol German bccrhnlls. 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 sho drought the bottles nnd ofl'ered some to A Justus. Alter ho had gone home nnd changed his (.lollies, one of tho boys took him to walk. iv!.i!e the other restored his coat to its form er condition. lie exnmincd it very carefully 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- wnnl.

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 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 tho road side in the m-hened grass some times overflowing a space iu the form of an actual fountain.
