gallop across tlio windy moors, wu
were glad to slop at her "littlo cottage
for a bowl of porridge she knew how
to prepare to perfection. I5ut in her
tranco statu I nover saw her.
'Between Marjorie and I there ex
isted one of those close and tender
friendships which spring ho often from
total unlikeness. She was tall, nnd
fair, and fragile; I, small and strong,
and a veritable 'imt-brownp triaydp ;
sho was the tmest Celt I ever kneuv
iniagiuative, sensitive, dreamy, pas
sionate ; I was the sturdiest o"f perse
vering, humdrum Saxons. . '
"Sho opened to me the riches of the
world of books, nnd brought mo into
communication with those who loved
nature more wisely and as well as I.
Sho brought poetry and romance into
my me, and 1 into hers a certain
breziness of sunshine that held the
dream-mists from gathering too close
ly about her, and made commonplace
life ami work more possible to her,
sweet idealist that she was !
"1 parsed from my childhood associ
ations, to be a part of them no more
forever, when, after urandfather's
death, I went to live with my uncle,
Uobert Parleigh, in Kent. I was only
17, and it was" hard to bid farewell to
the dear old irlens and moorlands :
it was hard to leave tho grand hills,
from whoso uplifted lights and shad
owy silence, all unconscious to me, a
sense ot the lnlinitu fatherhood and
motherhood had llown down into my
orphaned, childish heart It was
Hardest of all to say good -by to Jlar-
jone. W e promised each other that
our separation should bo as short as
possible. Sho was to come soon to
see mo at Darleigh -Manor, and I was
to iiass a Ions' summer with her at
Douglas House. But, ah, mo! how
much had passed before I saw my
sweet girl again !
"1 spent several years traveliiiL' with
my uncle and his only daughter Ethel
a lair, bncht, uroud mil. of whom
1 soon became very fond. And when
it last we returned to Kent, and 1
wrote, beseeching an immediate visit
from Matjorie, she answered that her
mouiers lailins: health kei it her con
stantly at her side, and they were pre
paring even then to take rofuge in
Southern Franco from the merciless
rigors ot a Scottish winter. And ner-
haiis I missed Mariorie less, that I
brought home with mo a shy, sweet
hope, that blossomed in my heart like
a winter rose. I mot Major Tregnr
then in Italy, and not long after our
return home sought out some hitherto
unknown cousins of his the Ffrench's
who had a lino old estate not inanv
miles from us. During his visit hi
found frequent occa.-ion to ride over
to Farleigh Manor n tall, dark, hand
some cousin ot Ins, liasil Ffrenc h bv
name, not unfreqiienlly bearing him
company. .Major Trogartheii was ten
year my senior, and my dear old uncle
was so wont to appropriate his com
pany and enjoy his visits that it was
un unspeakable amazement to him
when ono moining the Major inter
rupted him in a political" hananguo to
ask his niece's hand in marriage, with
her full and glad consent. So, when
the hawthorn was white in the hedge
row, I gave Major Tregarthen then
my hand, as I had given him my heart,
what seemed to us both, so lone ano.
under tho gray old walls ot Home.
Immediately after our inairiago wo
came to Tregarthen House, and' in tho
happy year that followed there grew
in my heart for the dear old place
that feeling which never in all our
lives cling about more than one home.
'The second year of our marria''o
my husband's regiment was stationed in
Dublin, whither I went with him, and
it was whilo theie wo begun to make
noto of how frequent in Ethel's letters
had grown tho mention of Basil
Ffrcnch, and what a matter of course
it seemed to bo that ho should be her
cavalier at ball and festival, until wu
came at last to leel certain that inv
cousin's proud heart had passed from
her keeping, and her turn to bo 'kissed
and cirried uwa' was not far off. But
thu weeks and mouths slipped by, and
though Captain Ffreneh seemed" to be
till the most freiiuent of visitors at
Farleigh Manor, the pleasant news I
was eagerly looking for was still de

una wnen me large deuis pivsunted
igainst tlio estate had been settled.
Ktliel was left with only a few hun-
lieds a year, instead of tho thousands

"Wo wrote at once, begging her to

so worn with grief and anxiety as to

"Before many weokc. Basil Ffrenuh
followed her into Wales, to lay at her
feet the henit. tho iiccontanoo of which
lie had doubted in her old. brlifht.
arelos days. But. to our surmise
md soirow, Ethel coldly refused to
listen to him. 'Ho should not offer
her now, for pity,' she said 'what long
ago I'o might have offered her from
love (. nnd though ho plended, and tho
Major "reasoned with her, and I alter
nately" Fcolded nnd tearfully coaxed
her.licr determination was not to bo
shaken, and tho .man who faithfully
loved her went back to his Kentish
homo with a heavy heart
"Though we most earnestly and nf
fectionatcly urged Ethel to mako our

yielding Farleigh pride in her clear
juiiug voice, mat -sue could never leel

est and dearest, ' and after some cor
respondeiico with an old friend of her
mothers, she told us that nt midsum
mer she should go to London, where
sno had loiind a situation ns governess
"But before midsummer it wns the
year 1 S.7 my husband's regiment
was sent, into the Indian service! and
although for us tho black horrors of
Delhi and Cawnporo were not, yet I
would not, if I could, have held him
hack. My husbands younger bi other.
Garth, had lately been nnimintud to n
lieutenancy in the -Major's regiment.
"There was no talk of Ethel's leav
ing mo now. Apart from my hus
band's absence, there was another
reason why, in days drawing near, I
needed some one whom I could trust,
and ono who loved inc.
"It was not wholly synipathy that
taught Ethel wnat tnv Hulteriuur wns.
Wo had heard that Basil Flrench
had lately asked and received a trans-
icrinto my husbands regiment, and
would sail with him in tho early sum
mer. I think if ho had como to Ethel
then, tho tolemn shadow of the Peril
into which he was going would have
hushed away her pride, and she would
havo shown him all her loving heart ,
but ho was not a man to ask lightly
again wnat onco had been so bitterly
denied him, and ho went away, and
mere was no sign between them.
"In tho weary weeks and months
that followed the departure of Garth
and my husband, two sad-eyed women
moved about the houso that was late
so gay, and sat silently under the
whispering beeches. Perhaps Ethel's
burden was the harder to bear, since
mine was a recognized grief, under
which i mignt cry out, while lor very
shame sho must hide hers in tho depth
of her maiden heart.
"It was just after word reached us
of tho regiment's safe arrival in India
that there came to mo a letter from
Marjorie, telling me of her mother's
death, after a long and wasting illness.
" 'Come to me, Marjorie,' my an
swer said, and in the early autumn she
'Both Ethel and I were happier for
having her with us.
"But in tho early November days I
noted with anxiety a subtle change
in her. Her face," always fair, had
now a certain transparent "look ; a hec
tic Hush, which vanishing, left her
deathly pale, replaced the color which
had always been constant and health
ful j sho seemed constantly languid
and exhausted, and sometimes invol
untarily she would pass her hand to
her forehead as if to press down a
"One November twilight we wore
sitting together in the drawing room
me long winnows mat open on the
terrace. Wu had not vet rnmr for
lights, preferring, as our frequent
fashion was, to watch tho waving sun
set over tho hills, and the btars shine
out ono by one into tho purnle silence.
A short, sharp cry rang suddenly
through the tilent room, and Mat-jo.
He's hand cold as a snow Hake, clutch
ed and held my lingers. I turced toward
her in alarm, her face was liko marblo
in tho dim light, and her eyes looked
strained and wild.
LAs I turned sho Hung herself into
my arms, crying passionately ; 'Oh,
Dora! Dora! 1 cannot bear it any
longer. Don't my dear -don't,' and
burst Into gasping sobs.
'Thoroughly frightened, I held her
in my arms, soothing and petting her,
and hushing her with every tender
word I knew, Ethel meanwhile clos
ing the curtains to shut out the eeriu
twilight, and lighting tlio caudles till
tlio room was 'bright with their soft
When at last Marjories sobs wore
hushed, and she lay, weak and tremb
ling, I said :
" '.My love, can you tell mo what
frightened you so, and what I was
doing that you should so piteously cry
out to mo to stop I"
"You would think mo mad if 1
were to try and tell you,' sho said, in a
Voice bcarcely ubovu a whisper. 'I
know oh, how well I know ! that
you were thinking of Major Tregar
then in Indiii, and longing to bo with
him, to see him, to know what ho was
doing; and it grew on mo of n sudden
that i could go there go out of my
body, and go there and seek for him
nnd I felt that you were bidding mo
to go ; and I was leaving you and
there was a great mist and darkness
closing round mo. and tho horror and
tho fear of it were like doath ; and I
tried to cry out to you to hold me
not to bid me go I'
"A line cold shudder crept like n
thread of ieu along my veins, but 1
summoned all the cheerful common
Bonso that was my birth-right, and
cried, as I fondled and kissed her ;
" 'My poor child, you are nervous
nud overwrought; and we and thu
twilight nro but dismal company ! 1
shall send you straight to your lied,
and bring you up a glass of hot drink ;
and n good sleep will soon chaso away

"Hut for nil that, I promised my
self that I would send for Dr. I.lewel
leu as soon as ever it was light enough
for n groom to ride. But, tired oiit,
I was only wakened next morning by
tho dressing bell ; and when I came
down to tho breakfast room Marjorie
met me, looking so cheery and liko
her old self, and so ready to laugh nt
her 'twilight terror' that 1 thought no
more of urging medical a,dvico on her.
"That morning thu Indian mail

illness that I had dreaded was como
upon her. Her face was llushcd and
her eyes bright with fever, and tho
restless hands that plucked nt the cov

Though her speech was broken nud in
coherent, sho seemed to know me, and
seemed to realize her condition and
the necessity of seeing Dr. Llowollyn

"The longing had hardly taken a
conscious form, when I began to feel a
curious numb chill creeping over mo
from Head to loot ; and, without Will
or intent of my own, I slowly turned
my gaze toward Marjories bed.
"To my horror, sho lay like one
dead a waxen pallor on her set face
and stiffened hps, through which no
breath seemed to come ; her eyes were
wido open and fixed only her look

frozen an expression as of ono hears,
terror-stricken, something far away.
"As I watched her, her thin lips
parted and through them, though ap
parently aided by no movement of

a certain extent true," but not mentally.
Somo of tho greatest men tlio world
eyer saw were plump even to obesity.
Napoleon was decidedly embonpoint.
Some one says that men of genius had
a parchment look formerly, becauso be
ing umleriiaid, they wero constantly un

extinct as the dodo or nicgotharus.

Dr. Johnson was tleshy, even to clum
siness. So was his biographical shadow,
Boswell. William Wirt, the great or
ator of tho early part of tho century,
nnd attorney in tho Burr trial, laced
with corsets so that ho was frequently
carried fainting from tho court room.
Balzac, the French novelist, was so
stout that it was a day's exercise to
walk around him ; and he" wns encircled
witli bandages, ns if he wero a hogs
head. Rossini, tho musical composer,
was a regular Jumbo, since for six
years lie never saw his knees. Tho
small boys called him a hippopotamus
in pantaloons. Jules .Tallin, the princo
of critics, broke every sofa ho sat down
upon j his chin and cheeks protruded

blanche was charged three fares when
ho traveled. Dumas tho elder was
stout. Saint Beitve was cursed with
the stomach of a Jack Falstafif. Eu
gene Sue, tho nuthor of the Wandering
iTeui, as well as Lord Byron, so dread
ed becoming fat that he indulged in
vinegar and lemon. It is generally
considered, when speaking of people
remarkable for llesh, that Daniel Lam
bert leads the list. He was an English-
man by birth, born in 1770. Up to
tho ago of 19 ho was merely a muscit
lar follow, able to lift great weights
and carry .00 pounds with case. lie
succeeded his father as keeper of a
prison, led an easy, sedentary life,
which soon told upon Ins bulk. In
180.T ho walked from 'Woolwich to
London to reduce himself. He weigh
ed at that time 1-18 pounds. He grew
so fat that ho could 110 longer attend to
the duties of his oHicc, and the magis
trate retired him on a pension of $200
a year. Fat as ho was he was an ex
cellent swimmer, and opened a swim
ming school, where ho gave lessons
with great success. So great was his bulk
that ho could swim with two men on
his back. Retiring, he determined to
exhibit himself, and, being unablo to
travel in an ordinary vehicle, had ono
made for him. In London lie was
quite the centre of attraction, from the
King down. In June 1809, he weigh
ed, and tapped the beam at 737
pounds. His measure round tlio waist
was three yards four inches, and ho
was one yard four inches round thu
leg. Each suit of clothes cost him
100, and were, of course made to or-
dei. Seven ordinary men could bo
be buttoned under his" coat at a time.

As you stand at tho foot of the ter-

seem midgets, clinging by toes and fin
ger tips to tho convex Mil face. To
the nervous spectator the sight is more
exciting than interesting. The narrow

could obtain a scenic foothold, much
less a man. You shudder ns von see a

terior of tlio cupola nnd with apparent
carelessness climb backward over tho
nai row ledge to tho ladder beneath.
That ladder eenis fearfully small and
unable to support tho weight of or givo
foothold to several men who arc upon
it. 1 hey lean forwuid at tunes until
only their feet and one hand nro on the
ladder as they run their brushes over
that pait of the dome within reach.
They seem suspended in mid-air, and
you tremble lest the next blast of tho
autumn wind, which, you know, blows
fearfully hard up at that dizzy eleva
tion, should loosen their frail hold nnd
dash them, shapeless masses, against
the cold, cruel 6toncs of the pavement,
two hundred feet below. Suddenly.
whilo you gaze. 0110 of them rnmdlv
descends thu ladder to tho lower land
ing, which is in reality about eighteen
inches wide, but seems to you a mere
line, nnd lightly, recklessly even, iunips
down upon the projecting edgu of the
column immediately below. You no
tice, however, that ho climbs back with
much more care. And you watcli with
sort of fascinating interest till the
