A Ilnvcis tlav was tlio twontv-tliirrl

Inml, ami put to Bleep by the narcotic:
kisses of Circe. And even the zephyrs
gentle pages to the crst-wliilc brawl
eis had been shut up in tho weather
clerk's signal box until 3 o'clock in tho
aftarnoon. Then tho yachts came, out
ami tno zepnyrs wore released, it was
not very good weather for sailing that
tho zephyrs made, though they blow till
their rosy cheeks were like soap bubbles
and tho wlutu sans wcro lined witl
scented breath. Tho lumbering schoon
crs staggered in zigzag pathways, as if
they meant to slice away tho island
noses with their dull prows ; and, in
deed, lho yachts sailed scarcely any fas-
tor, only the little plungers made un
checked headway, running at their own
sweet will, it seemed. The north harbor
was dotted with sails, livorybody and
everybody's wife and children and friends
were out. So thero was nothing strange
about tho mere presence ot a young man
and a young woman in a small rowboat
amid tho scono of lazy commerce and
busy gayety. Certainly it was not
strange, for there were a hundred other
people out that afternoon in rowboats,
to say nothing of the professional boat
men, tho men with sculls and tho rowing
clubs. If tho people on the yachts which
they met noticed them, they doubtless
viewed them with contempt, or else
looked at them artistioally, and thanked
God for poverty and tho pictiiresqrtt.
As for the couple in the boat, they did
not notice anything but each other at
least except us tho young man found it
necessary to chango his direction in
rowing to avoid being run down. After
a while oven this became unnecessary.
They were rowing with tho ebb tide,and
alter they had passed tho newly finished
bit of sea wall east of the old Meiggs
wharf, the channel was coinpariiilvely
clear. It was then about 3:!!0.
"Let us float," said tho young man j
pretty soon tho tido will turn ; then we

Tlioy had been talking gayly over

Hung ueacn, 1110 rrcsitio ) thoy wero
heating tlio foil nt tho trnto. A sudden
twirl in tho ci'iront twisted tho bow of
tho boat sharply around. Tom had been
leaning forward, tho better to talk to
Jiftura, tho mora easily to hold her hand,
peibaps. As tho boat shifted Its dimn-
tiou, ho instinctively reached for tho
oars, uis nanus touched tho empty
row-locks. Tlio oars wero iTonn. I !
looked around but thev wero nnwlinrn i
ho seen. A cry of horror aroao to his
lips, jjuckily ho stilled it there He
looked quickly, furtively nt his compan
ion. bho had seen and understood, lie
torced a laugh, and his companion wa9
deceived by it.
"1 hen it was not so very bad?" sho
said, and tho color camo back to her
"No, it is a irood ioke." ho ronlind.
"Only wo will be out rather lato. When
the tido turns we will go back booming."
Ueally ho had very little hope. His
judgment told him that tlio tido had no
yet turned, and unless it did turn almost
instantly, tho swift current would cany
them out into tlio oiling, and amid the
breakers at tho bar, where their frail
boat would not livo an instant. And
then . IIu could not swim a strnfcn.
If ho could, tho distauco to tlio shore was
too far to make that of any use. If on
Iy thoy had a rudder they might run the
boat ashore ; but, unfortunately, thny
had been in time to secure only the very
last, rudderless skiff. "Thank the fates
it does not leak." "Docs not lenk t"
lie looked down, and saw that the regu
lar bottom of the boat was covered will
water to tlio depth of almost half a foob.

Tom fcenrched in tho bottom of Un
heal for a bailing can. He could not
find oiii'. Laura moved so as to look
into the little lotker under the stern seat
There was no can there.
"What slrdl we do ?" sho said.
"I must bail witli my hat," ho replied
slowly, ;ts if thinking it out ; "tho water
must come in very slowly ; it is a long
time since we left Washington street
whiiif." Ho lool.ed nt his watch ; it
was then past ! and thoy were nearly
opposite Fort I'oiri. So far its they
could -ee there was not s wngle snil in
the oiling. Tl ey looked back at tlm
city. There wero no outcoming tugs or
fteameis, or schooners even. Then they
looked out through tho gate and www
Thero is an untranslatable poetic some
thing about our Golden Gate that the
sympathetic beholder, incoming or out
going, or gazing upon it from any stand
point, never fails to realize something
which, perhaps, ho acknowledges, but
may never put into fitting phrases. Per
haps it is because it seems so to hold the
kevs of our California lifo that wo may
1 , t . 1 r
not dissociate it from cither our history
or our future. Perhaps it is because in
looking at it one can never quite discern
its big boyoud,of weal or of woe, of sun
shine or of toniDost.

"I did not think there was so much

Uli, Tom, 1 ilont want to die and
leave it all," said L-iura, tremblingly.
Tho dallying breeze had shaken olt
the spell. The air lied grown srddenly
chill. Far ahead they could seo the
ominous white of the careening swell,
and along the shore they hoard tho dull
boom ot the sur . Lower and lower sank
tho white electrio dazzle. ; buff, and pink,
and orange toning into narrow belts of
opal. Kight ahead rose tho black Far
allones, and as tho sun still sank lower
they stood in unbroken outline against
With his soft hat Tom made slow pro
gress in bailing. Until then tho water
oozed in so slowly that danger from
leak ace had not alarmed him; until then
the cm rent, 100, had carried them along
so gently that tho danger of upsetting
had not presented itselt. Jiut alter they
had passed tlio fort tho motion of tho
waves changed, not suddenly but grad
ually until at last tho boat was rocking
iiko a ceder ehiit 111 the eddies ot a mill
race. And still tho tido had not turned.
Ceasing his bailing fornn instantfoiii
thought ho heard tho sound of water
trickling into tho boat. Perhaps it was
his instinct ot danger and not his ears
that wariiid linn, lor tlio waves weio
HplasliiiiL' acaiust tho outside, and the
motion caused a constant lapping of the
water within the boat, loin made 11
careful examination and at last found a
little hole through which lho water
poured in a fitful stream as the boat
rocked from side to side.
"I must stop tho leak," lie said, "can
you bail T"
J ho sun hud set, and the flush was
fading out of tho' western sky. Laura
took ono long look around. In all the
wasto ot waters thero was no moving
object. If thero had been a ship in
sight she could havo scon it, sho tlioiiuht,
She began to ball as well as sho could,
with the felt lint, and in her cramped

Why TJinlier was Siane.
A writer in a Wist Virginia paper
says that the Shenandoah Valley, when
first settled, 100 years ago, was an open,
prairie-like region, covered with tall grass,
on which heulsof deer, buffalo and elk
fed, and dovold of nil timber except on
occasional ridges; but that nfter it be
came settled, trees sprang up almost as
thickly and regularly ns if seed had been
planted. Theso forests, having been pro
served by tho farmers, cover now a largo
part of tho surface of tho valloy with
hard wood trees of superior excellence
The explanation of this change is that
previous lo tho settlement of the valloy
annual files, negligently started by In
dians, burned up tho young trees, nnd
prevented tlio foimation of foiests, hut
with the ni rival of settlers theso fires
wero prevented! and the opinion is in
serted that tho treeless character of tho
Western prairies is owing to tho Indian
practice of annually burning tho grass.
Were it not for that, dense founts would
have covered these vnU plains for cen-tnries
