very lonely as soon as ho was out of sight
for more reasons than one. In the first place
there was nobody at home but little Tim
who could dig the path, to bo sure, and look
after the cattle; grandmother, who wascom
panionnblo enough, with her stories of ol
times, but a caro more than a protector ; and
;usette, who helped about the houe, but
was only a child. Tho second was that she
had quarreled with l!en ; and last, but not
least, he and her Uncle Simon had driven
olT on the ox team nithher father. If there
had ever been a timo since their quarrel
when she had felt disposed to make it up, it
was when tho ox team had disappeared Irom
sight, nnd it was impossible to follow.
Tho fact of the caso was that lien had been
looking upon T.ouUa as his own property
ever since ho could remember. He had
beaued her to and from singing school j he
had helped her out with her hard problems
at district school, and had carried her home
on a sled j at quilling, sewing circle, or pic
nic, he had chosen her for his partner in the
dunce, had paid his forfeits to her, nnd had
revolved about her daily. And she hai
seemed to relish tho wholo thing till she
went away to the city ono winter to work in
a milliner's shop, and mi came home quid
out of conceit with country living and
country men, and had rather given lien th
cold shoulder, refusing his gifts and at
tentious, and showing pretty plainly that sin
looked higher, lint Hen, with the instincts
of a free-born American, felt himself as good
as anybody, and charged her ono day with
having come by hlfalutin ideas of herself
and life in tho city, which didn't tho least
become her, and averred that she couldn'i
do better than to marry him.
"Well, Mr. Benjamin Thurmau. I hope
you re conceited enough, sue answered
him. "Marry you .'I won't say but you re
well enough yourself ; but to live in th!
slow, backwoods fashiou forever would be
the death of mo ; and not so much as a lec-
turo or concert to whilo away the time ; to
be wearing homespun all my days, and wor
rying about tho crops. Oh, dear, no, thank
you j I've had enough of hard times. I be
lieve I'll wait awhile before I settl

"No, I can't say that there is ; though
don't mind telling you that I didn't come

the water to wash my hands."
"And why didn't you marry him?" asked
"Oh, ho didn't exactly eult mo; he'd lost
his front teeth and his hearing. Therc'i

FRIDAY, JUNE 8.
"Well," said lien, rising and looking bluo
lightning, "on tho whole, I am glad that
you won't marry mc, for you'vo got no more
heart than an adder." And then ho could
avo bitten his tonguo out for saying what
asn'ttrue,whcn his heart was almost break
ing for love of her j and If sho had showed
that sho was wounded hy word or look, ho
was ready to abaso himself beneath her feet
and tako it all back.
"You'ro amazing polite, Mr. Thurman, I
must say," sho returned. "I am sorry you
asked lor what you didn't want, becauso It
ould havo been awkward if I hadn't refused,
didn't know that this was tho way folks
ade love calling names, when I vo always
treated you well."
Treated mo well with a vengeance 1"
cried lien, his faco white as a star, and his
eyes like thunderbolts, "Do you call It
handiomo treatment to let m'c go on loving
on year after year, whilo it strengthened
with my strength, without a hint that you
couldn't return meastiro for mcasuro ? And
then to go back upon a fellow and throw him
over becauso ho doesn't llvo liko a nabob,
though ho loved tho ground you walked on,
and thought nothing too hard to do for you 1
If that i what you call treating me well,good
by I don't want ever to seo you again."
Louisa had been looking at him with
parkling eyes. She rather liked to see him
angry ; it was vastly becoming. And then
ho loved her so desperately. She felt a
traiige, delightful thrill at her heart, as if it
responded secretly. Sho had half a mind
to go to him aud hold out her arms and bo
claned to his beating heart, and forget am
bition and luxury and chooie rather a heaven
on earth : and while sho had hesitated ho
ad said : ''Good-bye I don't want ever
to seo you again good-bye."
"I return the sentimcnt,"said she, instead,
I believo I can live without you. Good
bye." And when ho was safely out of sight
o took revengo in a good cry.
Hut now that ho was gone, she began to
nd how much she bad depended upon him
nw much more his presence was to her than
uny dream of worldly prosperity, however
golden. Perhaps but for this breach sho
never would Lave known how dear lie was
o her, nor how little she valued the super-
lluities of life in comparison. Well, one of
tlio threo was to return before the winter
season of logging began, iu order to lay in
provisions for the camp as they had only
taken up enough for a week or ten days
and perhaps Hen would be tho ono to come
n which case he could hardly avoid bring
ing her some word of her father and uncle.
And then who would predict but ho might
think it worth his while to reiterate his love
in his eloquent style ? And theu Louisa
laughed wickedly at the prospect, and
decided that if he was enough in lovo to do
thus and thus, it would be safe for her be
yond a peradventuro to lake h;r own time
about making up, to show a supreme indif
ference to his regard. Xo more heait than
an adder, indeed ! What was it, then, that
iched so day after day, as the dull, cold Xo-
vember wind sighed about the houso and
touched the neighboring pines into Eoliau
harps and swept up tlio dead leaves, only to
scatter them again? Why was sho always
training her eyes down tho frost whitened
country road? And what was it that trem
bled in her bosom whenever a speck appear
ed against the frostv sky ? Hut LouUa had
reckoned without her host, lien was not the
man who was fond of reiterating a love that
i.id been received so coldly. He didn't
mean to leave the woods till March, if he
oultl hold out so long. .Moreover, it was
Mr. Hruco himself who proposed to go back
with the ox team and bring the supplies aud
lure tlio men
"I don't feel quite right about the head,"
said lie, "aud I want Louisa to cosset me.
Then I'll go out to Shopton aud see Scales
and Weight about the supplies, and be back
belore you and bi havo eat up all this 'ero
"All right, sir," said Hen, smothering a
twingo of disappointment which lie wouldn't
own to himself. "We'll get tho hovel ready
fur the cattle while you'ie oft", aud take a
iramp through tho woods and spot tho best
timber for felling."
"That's enough to do," said Uncle Si
"You'll bo back in five days, say ?"
"If I'm lucky. How's tho stores, Si
"Good fur a week, I should say such as
they are. Hut the boouer you get back the
better. It'll be easier for vou if you can
mauago to get up before a heavy miow
comes. You see, we haveu't had anything
but spits yet, though, maybe, we're going to
hev an open winter."
"Ay, ay," answered Mr, Hruce, as ho
drove olf through the woods with tho ox
team. "Provisions for a week, eh 1 That'll

work to be got through with in a week's

it, and to have em ready to start when I do.
and I ain't bo young as 1 was. Heyday, it's

Alas 1 tbero was more to bo gotten through
nith in a week's timo than Mr. liruco had
au inkling of; so much that It ran over into
the next week, aa work has a trick of doing,
hen Louisa saw that It was only her old
father trudging along with tho returning ox
team, her mercury went down to zero iu half
a second. She saw before her a weary three
mo iths of louo inesa and longiug.aud she saw,
too, that bIio deserved it,
"It's a deuced cold day for an old mau,'
said Mr, liruco, shivering before the wood
lire, as if there should havo been special sets
of weather created to suit customers.
What's that you'vo got cooking ou tho

"'Ihey oughtn't have let you come," said
Lu, indignantly, as she carried hlin a bottle
of hot water for his feet. Uncle Si or Hen
ought to havo come instead."
"Itwa'n't their fault; I thought I could
drive a better bargain with the hands. Hen
said he'd come in my place, but his heart

fever," said he, tho Instant he laid his eyes
on Mr. Hruce.
"Is ho dangerous?" asked Louisa.
"Dangerous? Oh, I guess ho'll pull
through. I'll leavo this prescription, and bo
round to-morrow. There's Mr.. Maverick, of
the tavern Maverick's tavern, at our place,
had the same symptoms a week ago, and he's
about to-day. Thcro's no telling about
these things; different constitutions tako
diseases differently. At least, you needn't
be alarmed at present. Good morning,"
with an emphasis on tho good. Louisa
thought it was anything but a good morning
after the comfort of his professional presence
was 'withdrawn. Hut tho next day her
father was no better, nor yet tho next,
though the doctor assured her that ho was
doing as well as could be expected, whatever
that might be.
Louisa was too V-usy, and weary with
watching and nursing, cooking and looking
after tho houso nnd seeing to grandma's cold
and keeping order and quiot among tho
children, to take any nolo of the sick man's
delirious words, though he was constantly
talking about the camp sixty miles away
wliero her own thoughts wandered whenever
sho had timo to think them bargaining
with imaginary teamsters, haggling with
Scales and W eight over groceries, and ro-
cating "Provisions for a week, for a week,"
and counting the days on his fingers and
sing tho count, and beginning over and
over again, as if it were a puzzle upon tbu
solution of which his life depended. And
so fever ran to tho ninth day aud turned,and
the patient fell into a quiet sleep, and awoke
too weak and languid to put words together,
or to remember anything but that ho had
suffered a fearful nightmare and it was over.
It was perhaps the third day after tho fever
turned that ho suddenly took up the thread
f life w here he had dropped it, and asked,
How long havo I been a-laying here, Lu ?"
"Where's Hen and Uncle Si?"
"Why, you left 'em in tamp, father."
"Left 'em in camp! Twelve days ago,"
10 gasped, "with a week's provisions ! I
houldn't wonder if thoy were both in Heav
en by this time! What hev you been thiuk-
nig of all this while, eh?'-
I didn t know they had only a week's
provisions," said Louisia, showing a ghastly
face ; "aud I had to look after you and the
Well, don't wait another minute round
me ; jut harness up old roan and Quickstep,
and take soma brandy and thiugs and don't
let 'em eat all they want; mako gruel; keep

"I'll take care of myself, and so'll grand
ma. Iloan and Quickstep can do tho dis
tance by nightfall. Tako my gun to keep
off tho wolves, and little Tim and a lan

was already inside her pelisse and mufllers.
"Bless you, a baby couldn't miss it; tho
trees aro notched with a star every half a
mile, on the left hand side. There, take
Tim and bo off."
And as there was not an able-bodied man
short of Shopton at that season who wasn't
off logging, and as grandma and Susette
could take care of her patient, and Hen was
starving without her, what could she do but
Aud how were they faring iu the camp,
sixty miles away in the heart of the wood,
which was almost like a primeval forest?
After Mr. Hruee's departure they had gone
about their work with a will; while Uncle
Simon was busy on the hovel of tho cattle,
Hen had walked miles and miles through the
sweet-scented wood, spotting tho timber
and suns had risen and set, when one morn
ing before tho week was out, Uncle Simon
was surprised to see the bottom of the meal
"Tough luck !" said he briefly, "but there's
swamp pork to eke it out." And he plunged
his hand confidently into the pickle, and
had something of a chase after two or threo
significant pieces. Tho two men looked
at each other In dismay for an instant.
But he'll bo back day after to-morrow,"
"Hut what if ho shouldn't?" asked the
older mau, cot so sanguine.
"What cau keep him ? At any rate wo'vo
got legs of our own."
"Precious stiff ones mine are I It wouldn't
bo a nice excursion, sixty miles afoot. Why,
wo should freeze to death !"
'Well, let's wait; uo use running from
And so they waited.
"He'll be sure to come to-morrow." was
tho assurance with whicli they comforted
each other; and when to-morrow passed
without briugiug him, "We'll wait another
day ; perhaps the oxen were disabled on tho
road." For a storm had set in cold and blus
tering; not much snow ; just cuough to mako
the world lovely. Tho wind sang among
tho pines like tho voice of augry water cour
ses, and splintered great boughs in the for
est, aud uprooted blasted trees, and seemed
like an invisible presence haunting tho re
cesses of tho wood some impersonation of
lhor, whose touch was a blow ; and all tho
while the snow built up its Aladdin palaces,
crystal by crystal ; wreathed about tho living
green, tapestried every boulder, hid thedead
leaves and hollows under tho screen, for it
was by no means deep ; tho weather was too
bitter C8ld for more than a light fall, just
enough to drapo naturo graceful v in its
folds, and givo a promiso of more to come.
Before tho sky had cleared, the last mouth
ful of food had vanished, nnd, except for a
partridge that lies had made shift to kill
with a club for ther? were no firo arms yet

ot their own constructing, they had not eat

robust men, who would have a tough fight
with starvation before succumbing; and
then there was no lack of water.
In the meanwhilo they wero almost as
much concerned for Mr, Bruce as for them
selves. Ho might have lost his way, they
feared, or been overtaken by tho storm or
the wolves ; he might come into camp at
any moment too far reduced to help himself,
aud need their weak assistance. Since their
stomachs wero idle, their brains becamo cor
rcspondingly active with fearful Imaglua
tious. Kvery day they proposed setting out
to walk home but perhaps he would como

faint hy tho way, frost-bitten, or, unarmed,
encounter Indian devils and wolves I What
ever ho might be ablo to enduro himself,
Ben felt that Uncle Simon's strength was ut
terly inadequate to tho struggle. They wero
set with a thousand peradventurcs ; thero
was not only a Hon In tho way, but all man
ner of perils, real and Imaginary. So they
waited, perforce, watching tho days vanish
in a tender dream of color, and the stars
mako their journey across the deeps of
Heaven, and tho morning dawns as the rose
blooms. They busied themselves still about
tho camp and hovel, giving a thousand last
touches, such as they would never have
thought of giving at another time, gathering
firewood and setting the rabbit trap In vain.
And ono day the axo fell from Ben's rcsoluto
hand, nnd ho just dragged himself Inside tho
camp, and stretched himself beforo tho fire.
Undo Simon had already given out.
"Walking home could hardly havo been
worse," Ben said, simply, Perhaps he was
thinking of somebody who might havo met
him kindly at tho journey's end, In view of
the dangers ho had passed.
"Perhaps Bruce'll como yet," returned
Through a chink in tho camp door Hen
watched the sunset fade liko a fire among
tho woods, and one by ono the stars shine
out each in its appointed solitude, and the
northern lights palpitate rosily along the
sky. Tho howling of wolves echoed dismal
ly, while now and then n branch cracked In
the forest, and the wind trebled among the
pines. Inside the fire mndo a comfortable
glow, under tho influence of which he was
soon nodding off to sleep, when through the
fog of his semi-consciousness he seemed to
hear a sort of ringing in his ears, at first
a mere thread of sound, then louder and
nearer, as if every tree in tho forest was a
church steeplo with all the bells a swing
ing. Then he heard no moro until a smoth
ered groan from Uncle Simon caused him to
raise himself upon Ills elbow. Tho fire was
still snapping nnd blazing brightly,'and the
form and profile of a woman was shadowed
forth upon the wall of tho camp a very fa
miliar faco and figure it was too, that ap
peared to be bending over something that
was cooking on the lire. Was it the excited
action of his brain that photographed Lou
is a Bruce on the wall? If so he prayed
that it might last forever. Then ho turned
his head languidly toward the fire and met a
pairof eyer that had shone for him all his
life with the fascination of awill-o'-the-wisr

"You are mighty polite if you aro most

"Nay, you shall choose for me," said Ben
"Listen. Unless you tako back tho words

A Muudebous Sea Flower. Ono of
the exquisite wonders of tho sea is called the
the opelet, and is about as largo a3 tho Ger
man aster, looking, indeed, very much like
ne. Imagine a very larjru double aster,
ith a great many long petals of a light
groin color, glossy as satin, nnd each one
tipped with roe color. These lovely petals
o not lie quietly in their places, but wave
about in the water, whilo the opelet clings
to a rock. How innocent and lovely it looks
on its rocky bed I Who would suspect that
it would eat anything grosser than dew or
sunlight ? But those beautiful waving arms
as you call them, have use besides looking
retty. They have to provide for a large,
open mouth, which is Hidden down deep
among them so hidden, that one can scarce
ly find it. Well do they perform their duty,

one of the rosy tips, he is struck with poison
as fatal to him as lightning. He immedi-

themselves around him and he is drawn into
tho huge, greedy mouth, and is seen no

A lady, closely veiled, hired, not long
ago, in the suburbs of Duna, a Russian city
on the river Dunaberg, a carriage, and
dumping a box securely corded into tho
chicle, ordered the driver to stop at a shop
where, as she said, she had to make some
purchases. The driver stopped and waited,
but the lady did not return. Then he asked
tho shopkeeper to allow him to leave the
box. Permission was denied, but on con-
ultation, tho box was opened by the two
men, when the body ol a dpad lntantwas
exposed. Tho driver did not know what to
do, fearing that he would be arrested for
murder. The shopkeeper advised him to
put the box back iu the carriago, drive to
the market place, and leavo it unattended
while ho ate diuuer, in tho expectation that
some one would steal the box. The driver
took tho hint, nnd the box disappeared.

It is believed that tu'keys were introduced
into England from America by William
Strickland, lieutenant to Sebastian Cabot, in
the time of Henry VII. Franklin always
said that thb wild turkey should have been
tho emblem of the United States, the log
cabin of the pioneer being in his day sur
rounded by these bird, who saluted each
other from forest boughs, just as the chan
ticleer awakens tho Knglish farmers. The
first turkey seen in Franco was brought
thither by tho Jesuits, and served up at the
wedding feast of Charles IX., in 15G1.
The Rev. Dr. John Hall, lecturing in
Philadelphia, said that the "bluo laws" of
Connecticut wero the "impudent forgery of
a loyalist clergyman," and 'that il was a
calumny against Calvin to attribute to him
the saying, "Hell is paved with tho heads
of little children." He adds: "Barefaced
forgeries have carried with them millions of
