LOST ON THE MOORS.
BY MARY T.. MOFFAT,
A. wide stretch of breezy moorlnntl.covcred
with purple heather, a sky whosa radiant
sunset tints were fast fading into neutral
grays. Par In tho distance aomo slowly ris
ing smoko spiralold of warmtli snd shel
ter. .It was a grateful sight to the eyes of a
young man who had lost his way among tho
seemingly interminable solitudes, broken
only by tho sound ot a utartled rabbit, or
whirling of a frightened paitridgo.
Shouldering his game bag ho at onco turn
ed his steps toward tho dusky harbinger of
As ho reached the modest cottago he
paused almost unconsciously, and looked in
upon the family group just gathered around
the table for their evening meal. Then he
passed on and gave a brisk rap at tho half
It was answered by yountc girl. Dof
fing his cap, the stranger said :
'I am alone, and have lost my way among
the moors. Can you give mo the wherewithal
to break my fast and after that a direct hint
'Come in, sir,' said tho farmer, who had
followed Mnriou to the door. 'You aro wel
come to aught wa have. Eat and drink first
then itwilj be time enough to think of leav
ing. Haste, Marion, and a chair for the
youth, and bring hot porridge.'
As Marion obeyed,Louib DeMornay's eyes
followed her with a look of wonder lurking
in theirdarkbut brilliant depths. How had
such a pure white lilly blossomed from sucli
a rugged stem, with a skin so atlny soft
that the blue veins upon tho temples could
be traced beneath it, and eyes so large and
clear in their unclouded blue that one could
easily imagine them tinted from the sky it
self as they looked out from waving masses
of sun-bright hair, fastened only by the
modest knot of blue ribbons. '
Louis DeMornny was a young Cuban who
had but lately fallen heir to largo estates,
both in England and upon tho continent.
One of these was a fine hunting scat in Scot
land, In which he was spendr c the autumn
months ; and beiiig of a romantic tempera
ment it was a great pleasure to hint to sally
out without his gamekeeper, and to make
his way over the country alone. This was
the first time he had become bewildered as
to location, and with the enthusiasm of his
tropical Southern natiire, be added ailent
but earnest thanksgiving to tho old cottager's
blessing over the food they wero about to
partako ; for it was to him liko the hand of
fate that he had been led to tho home which
enshrined such a maiden.
Xever,ln his wanderings overland or sea,had
hU eyes rested on one so beautiful, and liko
some blofcuom which remains folded in its
calyx for years, and then burst at once into
gorgeous love-compelling beauty, so did his
heart open to receive, into It Marion's im
age. She could not but feel the Influence of his
magnetic glances; and a color stole softly up
into her cheeks, and the bluo eyes scarcely
dared lift themselves from out the ambush
of the fringed lids as she listened to Ills con
versation with her father. Why did her
heart flutter so with pleasure when he ac
cepted an invitation to remain until the mor
row ? She was glad to Beek the solitude of
her room to question nnd chide herself
What had this fiery-eyed stranger to do with
her simple cottage life ? Yet the memory of
thoso burning eyes would come hack anil
thrill her very soul with their svytetness.
All unwitting of the truo attraction, far
icr McGregor responded to thoyoting man's
exprefsod,deslre to try his hand at the birds
upon the surrounding moors for n lew days
by n cordial Invitation to him to remain as
Tn his sturdy pride, It never entered Ills
mind that child of his would think of lift
ing her eyes to that dark stranger, who,
though to his knowledge a man of rank anil
consequence j was not at alt to his tasto in
looks, with such midnight-dark hair and
eyes, and n comptex'lon liko a Spaniard
though he well liked to talk with him and
listen to his stories of other lands ant:
So It came upon him like a shock, when,
after the stranger.'s stay had lengthened into
weeks, ho sought him one morning nnd told
him tho real attraction. It was his pearl
his white lilly it was Marlon.
The old man's lips opened at first for a
burst of anger : but he was his guest. He
had eaten of his salt. So he, with an effort
controlled himself and answered quietly, but
with a firmness which augured 111 for the
'My daughter must marry in her own sta
tion when tho time comes. She's o'er young
yet to make iier choice. You do us honor,
sir, by your proposal ; but tho lime will
come when you will thank me for seeing tho
folly of such an unseemingly union,'
'Sir, she shall be cherished as sho deserves
to be, if you will only give her to me. The
HeMornays were never known to bo aught
but a knightly, chivalrous race. Think
again, I beg you. I love your daughter so
truly that It can but bo that she returns it.
Such a fire could not burn without creat
ing at least a shadowy flame.'
'Have you not spoken to Marlon your
self?' 'It is the custom of my country to speak,
first with the father,' nnd the young man
raised his head proudly to meet tho old far
mer's questioning look. 'I have sought you
'That ts well. I should ill like to have
my girl unhappy. I wish you well, sir, and
success in all else you undertake.'
'The wish, without the gift I seek, will bo
but littlo good. You take the spring out of
my life, and then hope that machinery will
There was a bitter ring in his voice as he
spoke, but Duncan .McGregor was unmoved.
Marion was bis one little wee lamb, and no
stranger should claim her unless it wero n
youth after his own heart.
True to his code of honor, Louis departed
without telling Mariou of his feelings, al
though he did not intend to give her up.
After he had gone Marion drooped. She
made a brave effort to keep up, but it was to
no purpose. The light died out of her eyes,
and tho soft bloom left her cheek. Her
father noticed the cbango and taxed her
'I hope it's not moping you are after that
dark stranger, Marion. He's naueh', at
tractive to my way of thinking. He'll not
be back, either, for he got more from me
than ho looked for.'
'Oh; father, tell me, what do you
The bluo eyes looked unnaturally bright
as they gazed up into the old man's stern
'I mean that what I told bim is true, and
the sooner you put thoughts of him out
of your mind tho better for peace. "Xo lad
from foreign parts with such a blackamoor
face can marry my snow-white lass.'
A sudden joy kindled tho palo faco and
looked out of the wide eyes,
'Oh, father, did he ask you for mo ? Then
heaven bo praised 1 I read his looks and
acts aright. Oh,' said she, sinking down
upon her knees and catching her father's
homey hand and kissing it, 'I bad lost my
faith in human nature, nnd you havo it
back, lllm you for itl Oh, father, if that
face could tell a false story, then tho angels
themselves would be untrue 1'
'Calm yourself, Marion,' interrupted her
father, sternly. 'Did you not hear me ? It's
all at an end. You cannot be his bride.
It would be like the mating of a crow and a
'I care not, so ho loves me,' murmured
Marion, softly. 'Hear my vow,' she Baid,
suddenly, and again she sank upon her knees
and raised her pure, childlike, but resolute
face to his. 'I will never marry Louis
DeMornay without your consent ; but Kill
love him my life long, ami Jit an old maid fur
his take if I cannot be hit wfe.'
It was too lato to check her. Ino vow
was taken, and would be kept. The strict
old father himself would not have dared to
ask her to break it.
Matters went on about tho same at tho
farm. Several years passed by, during which
Louis was constantly changing his location,
as indeed it was necessary for him to do to
give personal supervision to his various
During this period of unmitigated pros
perity to the wealthy young landowner, far
mer McGregor had been gradually but sure-,
ly going down In the world. A succession
of bad crops, a dlseaso among his fine Dur-
hams, until scarcely a poor half dozen was
left of, his large herd, and a murrain which
proved fatal to the sheep, left him at last in
a very straitened condition.
Still he bad managed to get his rent mon
ey together. The pay-day was near, and
the farmer had put tho hardly-earned mon
ey in a leathern wallet preparatory to a
'Well, wife,' he said with a sigh, 'here's
pay for the last year. It's main doubtful
though, where the next will come from.'
'Keep up, Duncan,' was her cheerful an
swer. It's all tor tne nest, tuougu one can
not always ken why.'
So ho started away to the laird's country
seat on his stout cob, without. weapon of tie
fense ; for It was peaceful country and he
had no fear of molestation.
But his journey was not half -oyer, when
in some lonely woods through .which the
road ran, an escaped convict seized his tip
portuulty and struck him senseless from his
horse, rilled his pockets, and mounting rode
rapidly away with his plunder.
About lialf an hour later he was found by
thegatnekeepor of an adjoining estate and
taken at onco to the bn; house and cared for,
The master was away, but the housekeeper
was kind and ethcieut, and under her goad

fallen up on his shoulder, and it proved to

but to remain perhaps for weeks. So the

Tho day after the young proprietor arrived
also. Theusekeeper told him nt onco of
his strange guests, and he hastened to as
suro them of his cordial welcome.
As ho entered tho room .Marlon rose from
beside her firthcr'a bedside, nnd after one
surprised glance held out her hand, his eyes
shining like twin stars. Jt tij fault De
His palo face brightened with a sudden
light as he went forward. Taking her two
tender hands within his own ho turned to
the old father.
See,' he said, gravely, 'It is the will of
God that yoa should glvo me Marlon for my
very own. Her steps Iinvo been led to my
roof treo by tho hand" of fate. She.is to mo
tho mot precious treasure .In. tho whole

The old man looked uplntothedark earn
et face. Its expression of sincerity and
kinduess could not be misunderstood, and
in spite of himself ho becamo for tho first
timo conscious of his noble, manly beauty.
Then, too, Marion's vow rang through his
ears, and ho turned his eyes on her face,
which was like an April morning first
smiles and then tears.
At last ho reached out a trembling hand
and placed it npon Marion's bright head.
'Take her,' ho said, hoarsely. 'It is God's
will end the lata tores you. I'm not suro
if I would givo her up, but the poor balru
might soon bo without a sheltering roof tree.
The world's not gone well with me of
late, young man.'
'That is because you Blighted Lovo, nnd

fully, as he turned and looked questloniugly
into Marion's blushing face.
'Little one, is it true ? Do you love me t

JCST ABOUT THE GREATEST RIVER -IN THU
Extensive, important and profitable as our
rivers are in respect to commerce nnd devel
opment of the country, they aro wholly un
equal to the rivers of South America. Tho
Amazon nlono furnishes a host of watery re
BOurces,and is fitly named the Mediterranean
of that continent. Together with its tribu
taries, it is navigable by steamers, accord
ing to official reports, for 20.85S miles ; its
average breadth in Brazil is A miles j ,ries,
when high, 64 feet above its ordinary level,.
and its volume is so vast that sailors at
sea drink its water and find it fresh out sight
of land, its curront being visible 500 miles
from shore. The volume of the principal
rivers in our Bister continent is, in propor
tion to the area drained, far greater than the
volume of rivers here, on account of increas
ed rain-fall' The annual rain-fall' on our
Atlantic coast averages from forty to forty
live inches ; on tho coast of Brazil, seventy
nine inches. The main channel of tho Ama
zon is, for the first 1,000 miles from tho
ocean, nowhere less than thirty fathoms.
Beyond the Peruvian frontier it continues
to be 11 big river more than 1,000 miles Into
the heart of the Andes, the head of steam
navigation being at Mayro (Peru), 3,023
miles from tho Atlantic and 323 miles from
Lima by public roads; so that onlv 331
miles from Callao thp port of Lima on the
Pacific to tho head of steam navigation on
tho Amazon. Peruvian railways will soon
bring steamers on the Amazon within one
day's travel of the Pacific, and Peruvian en
terprise will speedily improve Andean com
munication and open tho interior of South
mencan to civilization and commerce.
The tributaries of tho Amazon aro longer
than the largest rivers of Europe. Tho
Maderia is navigable by steamers to its falls,
on the Bolivian frontier, over 1,000 miles
and aboyo the falls its tributaries furnish
4,300 miles of steam navigation, thus ren
dering commercially accessible the whole of
Bolivia and the western part of the Brazilian
provinco of Malto Grosso. Brazil has lately
granted a subsidy o a foreign country to
build a railway around the Falls of Maderia.
The large rivers, Napo, Marino, and Putu-
mayo, are navigable from tho Amazon,
through Ecuador and Columbia, for almost
1,000 miles boyond the frontier of Brazil to
the Andes, within 400 miles of Quito and
Guayaquil, and bo open communication with
all the region of Ecuador east of Cordillera.
The llio Negro, entering the Amazon at
Manaos, some 1,100 miles from the Atlantic,
rises near Bogota, Columbia's capital, passes
through Southern Venezuela very close tn
the Orinoco, and is n channel of trade .be

rank, in the days when lotteries wsro in

up the following plan of the manner in
which he iutended to spend tho fivo-thous-

AN OLD STORY OF ITS WONDERFUL INFLU
'You have heard,' said a youth to a mai
den who stood beside him as ho sat on a
corn-sheaf one evening about quitting time :
'you have heard, I dare say, of the Danish
boy's whistle of wood ? I would rIvo two
dollars and a half If that Danish boy's
whistle were mine.'
The maiden had heard of the wonderful
things which could be accomplished by
means of the magic whistle, and, coloring
slightly, said s
'And what would you do with It ?' while
n smile played over her-benutiful face, ex
tending clear round to her cars.
'I would blow it,' he' answered, 'and then
my fair maid would fly to my side and sit
dowrrpn the same corn-sheaf with me, which
'would make mo extremely happy, and make
it a matter of supreme Indifference to me
whether school kept or not, or how much

'Is that all yon wish It for?' exclaimed
the maid, with n laugh that started a convey
of birds in the next row, 'That may be
yours without' any magic, Charlie. A favor
so slight one could not find In one's heart to
deny, you know, and sho playfully seated
herself by his side and drummed with her
little heel in the furrow.

Greeley on Mormonism.
One winter Mrs. Greeley went to tho West
Indies for her health, and the following
spring she sent for her husband to come af
ter her and bring her home (0 New York.
Now, if there was one thing the old man ha
ted, it was the sea. The very smell of salt
water made him sick. But nevertheless he
obeyed his wifo's call, as he was accustomed
to obey her every whim. In due timo they
got back to Gotham, and that morning Mr.
Sinclair received word that Greeley was not
well, owing to his voyage, and had decided
to Etay at home for the day. In the evening
Sinclair was going to Washington on bus I
nes', nnd so, valise in hand, he called at
Greeley's houso an hour or two before tho
train was to start. He found tho old man in
bed, and actually very ill, having suffered
terribly from sea sickness all the way out
aud all the way back. He was alone, the
other members of the family being 111 or
swayrom home, and so Sinclair determin
ed to pass the night with him, giving up fur
that timo his trip to tho capital.
'Sinclair,' sale he, in that querulous
whine of his, 'I'm naked as the day I was
born. My trunks haven't nrrived yet, and
I haven't got a night-gown."
'But why not wear this?' Pointing to a
garment taken off before he went to bed.
Oh, I expect to bo out to-motrow, and I
want that to wear then. How the blazes
would it look after I'd slept in it ?'
Well, in due timo his luggage arrived,
and Sinclair made a bolt for the article he
wantoi. After some rumaging about he
found It, and helped the old manputlton.
It was speedily fastened at the neck, and the
nurse took up one of the wrists and tried to
button it. There,however, he stuck fast,
The ends wouldn't meet by fully two inches
He tugged and twist, d to his utmost, but it
was no go. Still, as the patient said nothing
ho supposed It ought to be fastened, and re
doubled his efforts for that purpose. For
about twenty minutes he labored without
success, I lien lie said :
'This is a failure. It won't fasten.'
'No,' replied Greeley, with exasperating
calmness, 'I knew it would not. The fact
is, I never could button the infernal thing
myself. But you eemcd to enjoy it, so I
didn't disturb you,'
lie lay back on the pillow for a few mo
ments, as if thinking deeply, and then sit'

upon tho quilt and exclaimed savagely
