know that ho loved Klso, whoso talher,
long dead, had become a Dane, and
who lived with her mother in tho old
houso tho father built. She was stran

and would not row in the umiak, or

race is ut when Mann, m n spirit ot
jealousy it was said, made complaint
to tho l'ariasok that slio was idle and
proud, many came to tell of seaweed
she had gathered for them, and dry
berries and moss to keep them when
tho ico bad driven tho seals away from
tho kayaks. Even from Unmak, tho
island in tho West, that looked bo tall
and far from Elso's homo, catno a wo
man, wo havo scon two years before,
who cried very much to hear theso
words of her, becauso it was Else who
had brought food to her all tho cold

8 mall and bad yellow hair, although
18 years old, and such bluo eyes that
BOino said thoy come from looking at
tho moss tlowers which sho loved to
find in spring.
Jens, was always proud ot her, and
everybody said thoy were a fine couplo
as tuey walked together to tlio great
stono chnreh of Stikkcrtopen. They
had both learned to read of tho Mora
vians and could write to each other.
But this was seldom, because Jons
would eoruo two or threo times a month
to sco Else, and although ho could stop
out one day sue seemed so happy that
never dared the evil Kivigstoks to ap
pear before her. bho did not bchovo
in them at all, and only thought of tho
good spirits that seemed to love her
and mako her glad.
But one day sho was seen in tears,
coming from tho shore, aftor Jens had
gone in his kayack to Naparsok. Wo
did not know why it was then, but now
wo can toll it, hearing it so many
times. Sho had promised to bo mar-
lied when tho summer came, and from
that time was very quiet and busy in
tier nouso. I hero was ono timo alter
this when Jens had not been seen for
throo weeks, and thero was fear for his
sake. Then ho camo at last, having
no excuse and not seeming so bright
and pleasant as ho ought.
ilns iMso saw uctora us all, and
could not understand it. But when ho
was going away ho wished, at' tho
store, to light his tobacco and sought
tor a m tho nood ol his.iacket. When
ho did this Else waited and saw that n
paper fell from it and blow to tho'
ground. Jens saw it, also, and would
gladly havo put it back without show
ing; to Else. Yet ho could not, becauso
she ran to bring it back, very joyously,

At last sue caught it and then stood
still as if great pain had como upon
her, and when sho saw Jena running to
her, und with hungry look plucking
away tho paper, she trembled like tho
littlo children when wo tell tales of tho
Angbiaks and of their ico kayaks steer
ing' through the Units and bergs with
the bouIb of drowning men.
biio had seen a woman s tace, very
beautiful, with largo evil eyes looking
softly for tho hearts ot men, and that
sho had her neck and shoulders bare,
as no woman in Greenland would daro
to bo. Tho namo was below, ami af
terwards she remembered tho English
letters and wroto them, hoping ono
day to know her life. Theso aro tho Ut
Very long black hair tho woman
had, and, strangest of all, sho was
brushing it and oiling it with oil from
a bottle marked with her name.
Nothing of this could wo now un
derstand, nor did Else, only that Jens
stood strangely before her, and tho ovil
eyes had drawn away his heart. 1 hen
sho hold her hand to him, and asked
for tho paper that sho miuht bum it
and sot him free. But Jens would not,
nnd walked sullen and cold to tho
This is why Else cried as sho camo
to her homo that day.
Many weeks after then, when wo
had not Been Jons in all tho time,
Ap'iluHe came from Naparsok and told
us that no had 'gone trom thero sinco
ho was at Sukkortopeiy and no ono
know whoro ho went. It was said that
old Karen . who walked with n long
staff, and was marked with figures, on
her arms and breast, had seen tho Ki-
vigtocks climbing in tho ice blocks and
aiming their pointing weapons towards
his house, and Karen held him for
dead, anil feared to look upon his old
path that huh rati to the shore.
But his kayak was gono and in his
houso tho Purissok found neither mon
ey nor food, nor anything but a small
pleco of sealskin many times wrapped
with tendons and markoJ with tho
nnmo of Else. This Apuluso gave into
her hands ami tt was gold, but wo did
not know it then, nor would l.lso use
it, but woro it in her bosom, loving
him still, and oven forgetting his cruel
actions ot neglect.
Seldom sho camo before our oyes,
but wo saw her on tho Sabbath, going
ulone to tho church, und every day sho
became t alter and more liko an angel,
so that all tho young moil wero wishing
, bug would torget her love lor Jens.
Somo months after ho had gono
away wo saw n ling upon tho staff nt
the station ot tho nation ot tno Auinin
istrntor, nnd the sound of four guns
told a ship wns como from Copenha
gen. Wo saw two men land from tho
ship i ono was a cleik and tho other

In a month tho ship Balled and tho
now Administrator was in his place.
Wo found him kinder than others had
been, nnd tho knynkcrs told that nev
er beforo had thoy recived so much
coffee and tobacco nnd other articles
when thoy sold tho blubber and skins
of tho seal, lie had kind w6rds for
the littlo children, and at his houso
gavo thorn cakes and sugar plums. By
this wo thought he had children of his
own, but ho novcr had been married,
and so wo found by what had happen
ed. It wns in October that ho came, and
all things went well excopl that wo
heard nothing of Jens until December,
when tho ico beoamo so bad along tho
coast that wo feared tho seals would bo
driven away. It grow worse after this,
and m February many kayakers had
not killed a seal in half a month. At
least thero was not enough for tho
uoonlo. and thoso who caught seals
and wild fowl would not soli them, but
hid all they did not use, out of fear of
AlwavB had Anuluso carried fish and
meat (of tho seal) to Elso's houso being
paid there out of tho monoy which
they had from tho pension of her moth
er. So that, when Apuluso searched a
whole woek and killed no seals, thoy
could get notkinn in all tho place,
We woro griovod to hear of this, but
tho tear lor ourselves and the nam ia
bors of our own providers mado us
keep all wo had. Boarco enough at any
tunc to last ono day.
It was on Saturday, tlio middle of
February, that Else left her house and
wont to the houso of tho Administra
tor with money to buy food. This silo
waited long to do, for such food as tho
European havo uses up our monoy very
When she went to tho house of Hi
almar she was dressed liko a Danish
maiden, and with her hair falling ovdr
her shoulders liko tho brightest gold,
Bho was very pale, having been much
without food, but her eyes wero bluer
than ever wo saw the moss flower grow,
It was as it an angel had gono away
trom tho sky nnd lived among us,
When Hialmar saw her it was for
the first time, she hud been so little
She told him the food sho wished,
aud then, thinking how littlo it would
be, and how tho pension would bo paid
away, tho tears camo into her oyes and
sho hid them with her hands.
Then she turned and went to her
home, but it was told nt all tho places
beforo tho day was gono that Hialmar
walked beside her and brought the
Hour and barley sho had bought.
On tho morrow when Else left tho
church, wo saw that nialmar mado
hasto to speak to her, and walked be-
gido her a little way till their paths di
vided. Many pcoplo thero wero who
shook their heads and feared little good
would come of this now matter. But
on tho whole islaud nono daro say they
were not tho finest man and woman
thoy had ever seen together.
Every Sabbath they walked from
the church as I havo said, Else going
very timid and demure at Hialmar's
side, so that no ono could say if it was
lor more than respect to ins high

blame her if sho had forgotten Jens,

When it was becomo summer at
Sukkcrtopen wo saw that tho Adminis
trator walked sometimes with Elso to
ward the place whoro tho children nnd
sho herself looked for berries nnd little
Mowers. Thero was ono day, bright,
.warm nnd mild, when with my chil
dren, I .stopped by tho Bido of a brook
that wo might gather berries for tho
men. While wo sat by tho bushes
near tho patch I saw coining from tho
town Hialmar leading Elso by her
hand. Then thoy passed by tho place,
over tho brook, but stood still on tho
other side. I saw that tho girl's face
was troubled, and that Hialmar spoke
many times to, her, now holding hei
hand in both his own.
Never had sho boen so fair before,
Her hair glistened liko cold in tho sun.
nnd soon her face was lighted With
such a look as I havo nover seen again.
She woro at her throat the bluo flow
ers of tho moss plant, that seemed liko
her dear self, as sho looked to tho
ground, scarcely lifting her eyes.
Alter some minutes sho tinned her
faco towards Hialmar and looked for a
moment in his eyes, and gavo him her"
hand which was free. Both of them
ho took in his, but put them gently
nsido and drew herclo?o in his arms,
nnd covering her faco with kisses, till
Elso drew away, looking on nil sides, as
if afraid. Then thoy turned to tho way
thoy camo and passed mo again. Very
much did 1 think of this tor two days,
not believing any harm could como to
hor, but fearing for her sake. But on
tho second day camo Hialmar to her
house, and asked her in marriago from
hor mother. Then wo first heard of
tho cause that led her to forget Jons,
and knew ho was without blame. This
was tho best betrothal mado by any of
tho women in many years, and to mar

In tlio month of Ancust nil tho pco
