in :i vnlk'V nnlv lortilo enough to sup
port ahdtit hulf uf it.i population, and
obliging the rent to travel to the cities
or to miiifiatu to other land".
Chrislina father wan ono of iho
richest anil most, important men in tho
iliice. IIo lived next door to the inn,
n ti rood-sized, minosing-looking while
hoife, part of the ground floor of which
ho used as a liake-hoiio lor ho was
himself tho baker and tho other part
f it an the shop to sell his bread in.
IJefoie she marriid, Christina had tried
for a little while- to matiago tho snot
but she did not like having to stay in
it nil day long, just in case any ono
hlioulil want to oe eerveu ; ami as snc
was an utilv and n motherless gitl, and
her father had indulged her all her
life, he soon engaged a middle aged
woman for the business ot hid snop,
allowed Christina liberty to do as
slio pleaed. She generally spent part
uf her mornings in llie tiaKo-noiisc, not
wheie the b'g ovens were and tt wa
I and her father too bmy putting in
the lo.ivis to nolieo her, but in a cool
out-hoiiM'. where her father mixed the
iliitiirh'und left it to rise. Sho liked to
watelt nun tiauuio it bu vjicvlii, an,,
she uenerallv nursuadod him, when
, . , . II . !. ..- ..1 .1..
all the black bread for iho village was
done, to make her a few delicious white
ml h such as she Hail tasted once av a
hotel in Zurich. She knew exactly
when tho said white rolls wouid bo
baked , and. after working in Iho houso
and getting tho dinner ready (which
lietniz a ruo.bwiss maiden, was a picas
urn to heri. she would trot down again
to the bako-houi-c just when her father
whs takinc them out ot tho oven, and
would sit on tho steps of tho front
door and cat them. I' or Christina was
rather proud of showing how sho was
spoilt and petted in having white rolls
made on purpose ior tier.
Her lover. Hans Jeni, many and
mnnv a timu came to her as she Bat
there, and, accepting ono of her prof
fered rolls, leant aa
and looked dowr. at her, enjoying his
; iew of her small round figure and
sweet, innocent young face. Sho was
a brown-eyed, brown skinned girl, with
musApH uf HofL liair of a colden'brown
shade, growing artistically round her
low forehead. She might have passed
unnoticed in a crowd, because she was
small and unpretending; but she was
undoubtedly tho belle of Sargans; and
nerhans many a larcer placo has not
boasted such a Domilar one, because
Christina "was kind as sho was fair.'
Her fortunate lover, Hans Jeni, was
twelvo vcars her somor, and had
known and loved her ever since sho
was a little girl toddling at her father's
side. IIo wax an. orphan, brought tin
bv his crandmothcr to follow his tin-
clo' calling; that is in tho winter time
he lived at Sargans and carved wood,
but the summer months he spent in
tho high Utigandino valley as guide,
coming down from thence in tho au
tum with a pocket full of money and a
splendid stock of health and spirits,
lie had spent his first summer iu Uiu
mountains when he was fifteen, going
up with his uncle, Peter Jeni. who was
a well-Known Engadino guide, and
with him doing some of the easier ac
cents, carrying knapsacks, and provis
ions to the" foot of tho mountains ami
learning the first principles of glacier
climbing. His uncle was well pleased
with him, and told him that his head
was as hteady as a rock, that he had
unlimited nerve, pluck and energy, and
that lip ro was in him the making of a
first-rate guide. When Hans heard
that ho made up his mind that he
would not waste his capabilities, lly
the time liu was five and twenty ho
had been up every peak in the Enga
dine, and most of" those in the Tyrol,
and by tho time he was thirty Peter
Jeni would probably point out to strait
gets his nephew and pupil as tho best
guido in the east of Switzerland, and
such ho probably was. He was a splen
didly made man, tall and strong, with
regular features, keen gray eyes, and a
fair skin biinbiirnt ; and Christina an
swered her own question with an em,
phatic negative, when sho asked her
self if there was a better sight in tho
world than Hans presented as ho start
ed for the mountains tho year beforo
they married, in his suit of strong gray
homrspun, his knapsack made of cham
ois skin bu his back, the ropo coiled
round and hung over his left shoulder,
tils ice-ax iu hU hand.
If Christina's father could havo cho
sen ho would have preferred that his
daughter should not marry a man who
from his calling must necessarily be
much away from her, for ho kuew the
lender clinging love which ho would
bestow upon her husband, and dreaded
for her tho pain of leparation ; but
then lie dreaded any and all pain for
her, and since she loved Jen!, and he
was a good fellow and loved her, too,
it would obviously distress her lens to
patt with him sometimes than to bo
neparated from him always.
And so all the Sargans was en feto
for Christina's wedding. Il was on
tho 1st of July, her eighteenth birth
day; Jeni had put off going to the
muiinlains that year until later than
usual, that he might tako his bride
with him for a holiday a honeymoon.
The villagers in after jears used to tell,
with tears iu their eyes, how that wed
ding was the prettiest sight they had
ever ssen : the handsome young couple
coming out of tho church hand in
hand, and Christina's father, witli his
iron-giay hair and stern though kindly
face, walking so proudly with Jem's
grandmother behind them. Christina
was quite a mountain bride, for at
Han's special rcqueat sho wore in her
hair a wreath ot soft "Edelweiss,"
which ho had gathered for her with
considerable trouble the (list blossoms,
ns he believed, of tho season.
The evening aftor their wedding, the
the young couple went by (rain to
Coire, the terminus of the railway in
that ditectior, and llie next dav a very
long ilitvo in the diiiigenee brought
them to Jeui's usual headquarters, the
village of St. Moritz, iu the Eugadino
alloy. Jeni had been very extrava
gant, and had taken tho banquet of the
dllligencci ho had always walked up,
other v ears, but (Jhrisuna was not ac
customed to being obliged to walk to
reach a given point, ami now ho mid
married a wife ho must tako care that
all things wero mado pleasant aud easy
lor her. Wow, although Bho was a
Swiss, girl, Christina had never seen
any Tcally fino snow mountains until
the lumbering diligence, with its live
strong hones retched the top of tho
Julier l'as, anil began to drop down
the other side into tho Engadino valley
then they burst upon her in their
matchless inde-inribablo grandeur, their
dazzling sheets of whiteness standing
out against the clear, oloudle.s evening
sky, while the rosy lint of tho strange,
beautiful "Alpengluhn' shone uion
some peaks of the mighty Bernina
chain, and turned the whole scetio into
a fairyland. Hans looked at it with
pride as well as pleasure, tor ho telt,
somehow as if the mountains belonged
to him, and although he well knew
their power to destroy, their avalanches,
their treacherous crevasses, their chan
ging slopes, ho was proud "f a knowl
edge within himself, which mado him
able to defy their dangers, and, by
mounting to their highest summits,
claim them as his own possession.
Christina clasped her husbands
hand. "I had not imagined they would
bo so grand," she said; "but I shall not
like to know that you aro on them,
Hans; they do not look mado to bo
"Wait till vou have tried ono Your
self, my girl. I mean to make a moun
taineer ot you beloro tho summer is
And to a certain extent Jem succeed
cd. Christina was not naturally either
verv bravo or very strong, but tho fact
of livine at St. Moritz, 0,000 feet
above tho lovel of tho sea, in the pure,
bracing air only to be fourd at suoh a
height, gave her, for tho time being at
least, fresh energy and power, and
climbing with IIui's help was, after
all, a verv easy matter. IIo mado her
begin so slowly, ho arranged so clever
ly that sho should not at any time walk
in the heat of the day, he gavo her his
arm and supported her when they came
to any place, which, to her inexperi
enced eves looked dangerous or difli
cult. and. of course, ho did not take
her anywhero which was in reality
either the ono or tho othor.
As a rnlo ho was employed as
cuide every other dav; sometimes, dur
ing Augnsl, ho went out every day;
but if tho excursions were long ones he
did not oaro lor this, and if thoy were
short and easy ho cenerally sent somo
vottnifor and less able man than him
self. Ho only once loft Christina for
moro than twenty-four hours, which
dm when lin vent riwav in tho Tvrol
with an Englishman called Stanley for
nearly a week; but then ho had been
guide to for threo years tunning, and
the two had become firm friends, as
well as willing companions. Stanley
earao to see Christina when they ro
turned from their expedition, and
charmed, although ho confused her, by
his warm praise of her husband.
"He is ono of tho best fellows I ever
met," he said, "and I hope you may
havo a long aim happy lite together,
for vou deservo it.
Stanley was a bachelor oi Keen sus
ceptibilities, and a very strong impres
sion was made upon mm oy ino young
Swiss girl and her stalwart guidu nus
That first happy summer came too
soon to an end ; all tho visitors hud
left tho high valley by the middle of
September, and a heavy snowstorm
happening to fall then, Hans and Chris
tina wero obliged to cross the Julier
Pass on their way home in a sleigh.
The next year Christina was not
ablo to go to tho mountains with her
husband. Sho sighed and lamented
liltle, as was natural, but looking for
ward to the future was bravo and good
about it, and after her little boy was
born, early in August, liana came homo
lust for a week to neo hor. She was
staying at her father's house; but al
though Hans knew she was well taken
care of and cherished, no lound it mini
er than ho had expected to leave her
acrain, and her young baby; sho lookei
so fragile anil ill, and cried so bitterly
when he said good-byo to her.
"I could let you go quite easily, my
darling," sho said, "if it were only to
the towns and the valleys, but it is on
those dreadful mountains that I cannot
bear to think of you
"And yet you know how really and
truly safe I am upon them; I under
stand them loo thoroughly to bo care
less; I can not come to any harm.
"Heaven grant that vou may not
but I do not see tho impossibility."
"You must try and not think about
mo tho next few weeks, little woman.
ho said encoutagmgly; nnd by next
vear. if vou aro still frightened, I will
find somo work to do at Zurich or
Coire. Iitit I must go back again to
St. Moritz now to earn somo money to
pay for all that this .little fellow costs
us," locking at his baby, "and you
must set nuito well aud strong, and
then you will not feel inclined to fret
So ho bout over her tenderly and
kissed her, and looking at her for a mo
ment with infinito love, he left her. He

Montr, working every day, and earn
ing moro than ho had over done before.
but as his wife wrote to him anxiously
ami was, besides, according to hor
father's account, anything but strong
or well, he decided not to slay away
from her alter the olh ot septomber.
Un tho afternoon of the -4 ill, as he
was in his room arranging matters fo
an early start home the next morning,
there was a knock at tho door and
btanloy camo In. The two men, who
had not seen each other since the year
ueiore, met witn pleasure on iioin smes
ami blarney, accepting the chair Jen
offered htm, sat down for a long chat
on mountaineer matters. lie had only
just oomo over from England, liere
business had kupl him later than usual
and was eager to know the condition
of tho snow and how many high expo
illtions it would bo sale to tmdertak
so lato in tho year-
"Then at present you may do anv
thing you like," was Jeui's favorable
"Then I'll engage yott for as long 'as
Hits lino wealuir lasts, and we will hi
if wo cannot manage something alto
"O, no, sir 1 not this
sorry to say, for I am
taafu to-morrow nioruii.g."
Perhaps Jeni was almost as disap
pointed at having to. say this as Stan
ley was to hear il; for notwithstanding
his lovo for his wife and child, .Trill
w as, as ho always had been, a keen
mountaineer; nnd the prospect of a
week or two's work with such a good
walker aud climber as Stanley, and
such a pleasant companion, too; was
very nttractlvo to him. From Stanley
there followed a I mg protestation. IIo
did not care for the Emradiuo i ho did
not care for his holiday ; and lu fact,
he might as well go straight back to
England, ho said, sinco Jeni would not
change his mind and consent to stay.
"And, indeed, I would give tho
whole thing up, ho concluded, "if it
wasn't for another fellow who is out
with me, and with whom I have prom
ised to make at least one or two as
(num. Lnnk here. Jeni. nut off leav
ing just for a day, and take us up tho

and Monte Cristallo."
"I trust to yon Mr. Stanley."
And tin y fell to arranging details of
tho expedition. The Pir. Bernina is
the highest mountain in tho district,
but by no means the most difficult to
ascend, and Jeni, who had onco been
up it in mid winter, taking twenty
seven hours without any rest over the
expedition, thought lightly of it; now
that all conditions were favorable. After
some discussion ho decided to leave the
fireparations to Stanley, who thorough
y understood such matters, as ho was
anxious to keep a promise ho had
made long ago, and visit that after
noon a cousin of his wife's in the
neighborhood. Stanley suggested as a
second guide a man called Ilardt,
whom Langley had brought with him
from the Tyrol, and to this Jeni con
sented. "I sent on my ropes to Coire yester
day," Jem said. "Will yon see that
Ilardt brings sufficient and strong !''
Stanley promised to do this, and every
thing else, and Jeni having arranged to
call for him at one a. in., the two men
Jeni was vexed with himself, now
tho whole thing was settled, for ho dis
liked having to telegraph to his wife,
and ho disliked, too, having, for tho
first time in his life, entrusted tho prep
arations to homo one else; however,
there was no help for it now. Ho went
to the telegraph office and sent off the
following telegram : "aorry, nut can
not come till tho G:20 p. m. train on
the Otb." And then he dutifully start
ed to see Christina's cousin, because ho
knew his little ,vifo would be sadly
vexed if he failed to do so. IIo did
not get back before 8:30 p. ra when
he threw himself on his bed, and, with
his useful but acquired faculty of going
to sleep and ot waking at any given
time, ho slept until midnight.
1 ho two gentlemen and the guides
met punctually at thu rendezvous; it
was loo dark, in spite of the lauterns
they carried, for Jeni to examine the

saw that both wcio young and heavy,
powerful-looking men. He asked Ilardt

r'-.... . . ..

"You aro suro 1"
"Then let us bo off.''
And in the bileucu which character
izes men at the beginning of any long
undertaking, they started, skirting the
small dark Luke of St. Moritz and
through tho pino woods toward the
ISermua. When daylight broke they
were cnmoiug slowly up us snowy
slopes; Jeni was the only ono of tho
party who know tho mountain, but ho
had tint been up that year, and ho
found the snow, after the long hot sum

consequently tiring; they could not
make as rapid progress as usual, Jem
broko a long silence by announcing a

As far as Stanley could tell and
had reason enough to remember after

and pulled with nil their might on to
tho rope. Sorely they would bo able
to hold ns Jeni t Ay, so they would;
but, as ho movod and tried to raise,
himself, tho rope gavo a sharp snap
and breke in two, just between Stanley
and Jeni, and with a ringing cry of do
spair tho guido fell down into tho
unmeasured depths of the orevasso be
low. Details of the next few hours and of
the return of tho remaining threo to
St. Moritz need not bo given. It was
altogether impossible to recover Jeui's
body, and in his icy grave they left
him. Maybe, if tho poor fellow could
havo chosen his own resting place it
would have been somewhere among
those mountains he loved but too well.
It is also unnecessary to enter at
length into Iho painful question as to
who was to blamo for tho accident ;
primarily, perhaps, Jeni himself, for a
guido should trust to no ono tho super
vision of aylhing so important as the
ropes, and certainly in this caso the
rpo was a worn one, which Jeni, if he
had seen, would never iiavo thought of
using ; then Stanley was more or less
to blame, because he promised Jeni ho
would sco to everything, and instead
of doing so ho left the arrangements
to Ilardt; and finally, of course, Ilardt
as bitterly to blamo for taking an
unsound rope. He had bul a feeble
excuse to maKe lor nuns-ell, i. c., thai
ho had no better one, and did not like
to put off tho wholo expedition because
the rope might oe a ttuio rotten.
Stanley was almost inditferent as to
the cause, he was bo entirely taken up
with its eltect, lor he telt altogether
frantic at tho thought, which never
loft him, of pretty Christina and her
awful sorrow. At first ho intenoed to
travel down without pause to Sargans,
and break her the news himself ; then
it seemed to him that sho would bear
to hear it from her own father, and to
him he telegraphed tbo facts. Schmidt
was a bravo man, with strong leelmgs,
which he held under all circumstances
perfect control ; and perhaps he
thought his little daughter moro liko
hiniBelf than she was, in her present
weakness. Possibly things might have

She turned terribly whit", and that
