THE DOUBLE RESCUE ;
THE STRENGTH OF LOVE
" A dreadful night-0, a dreadful night l"
murmured the young wife with a shudder, as
screening the pane with her hand from the
bright firelight, she attempted, but in vain,
to penetrate the storm and darkness without.
"God grant he may be near," and with this
heart felt petition She turned from the win

Cheerful, homelike was the aspeCt of tha ' A

door, she paused in her work, and raised her
eyes full of hope and expectancy, then, when
only the-groaning of the neighboring fOreSt
trees met her listening ear, sighed, and again
strove, by Attention to her employment; to
confine her thoughts, and calm her
Slowly and distinctly the tall clock at the
back part of the room, told the hour of eight.
The young woman put aside,-her task, and
once more went to the window. The tempest
had not in the least abated, but raged with
the fury of.a thousand uncaged lions;.and
seemed still-increasing..-Fearful indeed was
that evening's elemental warfare, over that
-bleak Canadian plain!
"Yet he comes not: my husband. • Mer

some Moments she stood indulging their flow,
until her heart, like a lightened ship, rose to
its wonted place upon •the billows whichhad
threatened to overwhelm it.
Hoye repeated her whisperings; and,' in
imagination, the young wife beheld the Stur

storm, and step by step nearing his home in
safety. Already she seemed.pouring for him

from aloe of inviting appearance, and laid
it upon the already laden plate: After re
plenishing the fire, she resumed her seat be
fore it, and gazed into the writhing flames,
that hastily embraced the fresh fuel, and with
a serpent-like hiss swallowed the snow-flakes,
as they dropped into its red, open jaws..
The minute hand of the clock had traver
sed half the diStance around the dial plate.
The evening was fast waning, but the absent
one was - absent still. About noon of that
day he had left home, on foot, intending to
transact business in a village five miles-dis
tant, and return by nightfall.
At that time no signs of an immediate
storm were apparent, but as the day drew
near its close, the clouds began to gather
thick and heavy, and the snow to fall in huise,
feathery flakes. Faster and faster it descen
ded, till all, the air seemed filled by one migh

Vainly did she endeavor to persuade her
self into the belief, that the fierceness of the
storm had prevented her husband from leav

Ho would never voluntarily abandon her thus
to loneliness and awful uncertainty—no ; the
assurance was all too undoubted, that the
cold and the tempest had overpowered him
on his way, and he had sunk amid the drift

No wonder that her cheek blanched to mar
ble hue, and her eyes grew wild with terror!

Suddenly she pauses, while every feature
speaks desperate resolve. See, she hurriedly
envelopes herself in cloak and hood, and now
with step moves toward the door.' Upon
what is she determined? " Surely she will not
expose that frail form to the strife that rages
without! That were.= act of insanity !
But yes; she lifts the latch, uncloses the
door. On the instant, a furious gust drove a
portion of the snow which had accumulated
against the panels to the opposite side of the
room. Unable to compete with its rage, the
agonized wife shrank back, with a low, trem
ulous "moan; and applying her whole strength
to the door forced it again to its place, be

Snow-filled path. The. Storm -was over, the
' clouds were beginning to break, and let down
the rays ofmoon, whose broad disc had
just risen aboVe - the horizon: ' Mit while the
snow had ceased to fall, the cold had grown
more intense, apd the, wrath of the wand was
nothing spent. ,
Madly it swept across 'the extended plain,
'converting it in aspect to a stormy sea, where
foam-crested waves chase and dash upon each
other, like wrangling demons. Onward toil

suffocating snow which was consequently be
ing hurled against her; ' though an occasion
aCblast, fiercer than the others, compelled
her to halt fora moment, and bury her face
in the folds of her cloak. Then her slender
form, swaying to and fro as if it had been a
yielding sapling, seemed as if it must be
borne down, but affection, deep, all Powerful
affection buoyed her up and led her forward.
It was a dreary waste over which she had
to pass ; no cottage window sent forth a
cheering gleam; only a snow-covered plain
and. barren trees, in the distance, could be
seen. No power could have summoned hu
man aid to the spot; the direst shriek of
-distress would have been wasted on the air.
And now, when nearly a mile lay-between
her and home, the wife felt herself exhaust
ed, and benumbed by cold to a degree that
she could proceed no further. The sharp
winds pierced her garments as if they had
been but a robe of muslin, and put to the
torture every fibre of her frame. Her limbs
refused longer to obey -her will, her breath
was gone, her very heart's blood seemed
turned to ice. She tottered, fell, and the
same blast that bore her down, wrapped her
in a. shrOnd'of snow.

rose to her feet again, for her last glancelad

She sought, nerved her to make one more ef

had attracted her attention, she struggled
forward, and reached it just as her last rem

It was indeed her husband. He had con
tended with the elements, till chilled, wear
ied, and almost breathless, then had sunk
down in the path in order to recover himself
for a further effort. No thought of perishing
had pn,Ssed the strong man's mind ; but no
‘ did: muscular action cease, than the
lethargy which but for timely breaking had
ended in death, was upon him. All sense
of suffering fled, gay colors floated before his
sight; and the sound of the angry blast seem
ed sweetest music.
He sat with his feet drawn--up, and .his
bead bowed - upon his knees. New long he

voice of his wife exclaiming : "Thank God
