The county of Down is a distriCt
that can ardly: be rivalled in the
'ivorld for aried picturesque ' cenery
and gener, 1 interest ; a pleasanter
spot for a ramble could not be found
elsewhere. iiNo matter whether the

Stopping with some friends at '.tho

which ,lies at the foot of Sljeve Ban
like a chilkin the aril's of its nurse.
It is thoroughly protected on the

although open to the sea, is only ap

- The farm houses in this county are
much superior to those in the more

paradise in the Emerald Isle it is to
be found between Carlingford Bay
and Belfast Lough, between Moira
and the Irish Sea.
One. morning started, accompa
nied by Charlie Yernon, the friend
with whom I was stopping;lo visit
the seaport of Carlingford, which is
full of castellated Ad. monastic re
mains ; having gratified curiosity we
crossed the Bay of Kilkeel, where, we
lunched, and took a car to drive
around the coast to' Newcastle, a
small town on the shores of Dundrum
Bay. There we intended to rest for
the night, and to make the ascent of
Slieve Donard, the monarch of Irish
mountains, the next morning. In
the evening we amused ourselves,
with strolling about the beach, watch
ing the fishing smacks that lay at,
anchor in the •bay, with their white
sails ,flapping lazily against their
masts, while their owners got ready
to. tempt thq, dangers of , the deep.
When I was first in that part of Ire
land, in 147, the Great Britain, now
one of the luckiest vessels sailing to
A ustmlia,.went ashore on the pun
drum sand banks. The thought
brought back happy dreams of ,my
childhood. Ilow many of the friends
who visited that shore-bound vessel
in the hour of her trouble have pass
ed away.
While Ilwas pointing out to Char
lie the spot on which iihe run aground
he gave a startling exclamation and
pointed to,a narrow ledge that jutted
out from, the side of the mountain
overhanging the sea. On the extreme
verge of . the precipice two men were
engaged in a deadly struggle, and as
we sprang forward and shouted for
assistance one' of them stumbled;
for 'a moment he hung
over the waters; and then the other
stooped_ down and forced hie hands
from the cliff; he fell, and the dark
waters closed over him.
Charlie aia I rushed off to procure
a boat, but iyere stopped on the way
by an old gentleman, the priest of
the parish.
" Ali, sirs," said he; "it is of no
use; the struggle that you have wit
nessed was not. between mortal men.
Every year,. on this day, the same
tragedy, is played."

" We do not understand you."
" Twenty-five years ago two broth
ers .struggled_ on the brink of the
abyss. Afterward the one who burled
the other into the sea committed sui
cide, and, since that time, on the
anniversary of its death, the villagers
have been terrified by the eight that
you have just witnessed."
By this time we were surrounded
by a number of fishermet; who cor
robonded their pastor in every re
spect. The - old sentlemanaaked us
to dine at his cottage, and offered to
be our ' guide up the mountain the ,
next day, promising that he would ,
tell us the whole story of the appari
tion during our walk. Of course, we
accepted his offer, and, in the morn
ing, when we came down to break
fast, we found him (waiting for us.
The ascent . of Slieve Donard Is a
grudual one of--ribciut four miles,and
it is nearly 3,000 feet above the evel
of the sea. There is a mountain path
about half way up, and the remain
der of the way is through healthy
slopes, and over rocks with scarcely
any b og land intervening.
The scenery is of the most varied
and attractive character. We caught
glimpses or hundreds _of beautiful
striking views on land and sea.
Climbing up high steeps, del - Mending
deep valleys, - skirting around narrow
paths - that overhung deep inlets of
the sea, we could make out the Hill
of Ilowth, and far out in the ocean
the Isle of Man was dimly percepti
ble. Below, to the north, lay Ard
glass and Strangford' Lough, which
our friend particularly pointed out to
us, as the inland sea was connected
with the story he had promised to
relate. Sometimes, through an open
ing in the hill, we could 'see the fer
tile valley that leads forty miles in
land to Lough Neagh, and obtain
peeps at the long, solitary, deep hol
lows that lie in the hearts of the
At last--we reached the summit,
and, throwing ourselves on the grass,
we gazed long and earnestly on the
surrounding landscape. From the
northern brow of the mountain fell a
plOsant fountain of exceedingly pure
water. The stream joins many oth-.
era, which, in their rapid descent,
form a river, running through a
channel of white stone, broken by' a
thousand windings, and making in
the summer a prospect of waterfalls,
cascades, jets d'eau and ponds, the
most variegated and delightful ; but
when the-winter floods came, the roar
and impetuosity of this fall are ter
rible in the extreme. From- the top
down to the rocks overhanging the
sea is one continued descent, and the
lower parts, though craggy and rude
enough, are covered with hazel, holly
and rowanash--Ithose next the cliffs
being old, bowed, stunted and lan
guishing; while the - more remote,
although in a higher situation, are
flourishing and healthy ; and all this
upon the face of the mountairi, ex
posed to the wide open eastern sea.
Near the summit are the - ruins of
two rude buildings, said to be the
cell and oratory of St. Donard, a dis
ciple of St. Patrick, who once made
his home on these mountains ; and
here the peasantry assemble on the
patron saint's day to do penance and
pay their devotions.
Here, lying at the foot of the \r uins,
Father Michael began his tale :\
"You see, gentlemen, the Moun
tain that stands on the southwest,
divided from Slieve Donard by that.
narrow vale and stream ? It is called
Slieve "Snaven, or the Creeping
Mountain, because a portion of it
can only be ascended in a creeping
posture. As you perceive, it pre
sents to the view a huge rock; re
sembling at a distance some old for
tification, very high, overhanging and
detached,'aa it were, from the eastern
side of the mountain. After rain a
stream rushes from the western side
of the rock, shooting from the top,
and falling in a large cascade to the
beach; to the east of this fall-there
is a vast natural cave, with an en
trance nearly as wide as. the cave
itself. This chamber is lined with
ferns, grass and many beautiful
mountain plants, and is inhabited 'by
many hundred hawks, jackdaws and
owls. At the further end there are
some crevices through which -the
light penetrates, and if you climb up
a Marrow passage on, the left, to the
top of itte rock, you will arrive at.
one of the most beautiful and roman-.
tic spots that can well be conceived.
You will find that the rock is only
the advance part of a large shelf,
which projects at about the height of
half the mountain, with a sweep, and
leaves the space of about two acres
on the top. Round the northwest,
the west and south of this area, the
mountain rises to a great height, and
stands like a great wall; the area
itself is almost round, and slopes.
gently from all sides towards the
middle, where is formed a beautiful
circular lake, as clear as crystal.
" One morning about twenty years
ago, as the sun was sinking' to rest'
in the waters, two lovers were seated,
side by side, by the margin of that
lake, under the shadow of the over- I
shadowing precipices.
" The ocean, which 'had that brill
iant green , tinge peculiar to the wa
ters of our coast, was turned at the
extreme horizon into molten gold , by
the rays of the setting orb of day.
In 'the bay beneath, smoke was iisine
from the little village of Newcastle ;
while, further north, like dots in the
distance, shown the walls of Dun
drum. Far away at sea, the white
sailed fishing boats, Whose owners
bad been endeavoring to earn a scan
ty living for their wives and children,
were just visible, returning with the
finny spoil. To these toilers of the
sea the blackened walla of the gloomy
ruin on Slieve Donard served as a
landmark ; and the mountain side
was a 'favorite trysting place for the
lads and lasses of the neighborhood.
"Everybody loved Nelly O'Hara,
the prettiest girl in Down, a county
noted, even in beautiful Ireland, for
the beauty of its women. At a dance
everybody was ready to fight for the
honor of shaking a' foot with her ;
indeed, the rival wooers did often
finish by breaking each other's heads
in revenge for Omit. own broken
heart, till at last itcwas known that
Nellie looked witlrifavorinireyes

father, Dennis O'Hara, had met-mis
fortune. During the ea;ly part of
the , ptitato famine he had become se

since failed,iand all the littlemoney
that he had passed $ lifetime in sav

to this period had been punctually
paid; fell into arrears; his landlord,
a stern, harsh man, who presetvid
everything but his ,tenantry,,threat
-ened to turn him out of, Ns *olll,`
and ruin seemed to dare hint hi the
face.' Then,' for .the first time in his
life, he thwarted the daughter who
had shed a sweetness on his home in
ber dearest wish, and refused his con
sent to her marriage with the man of
her choice.-
"Poor, handsome Carrick was not
the eldest son; his father bad been
twice married, and had two children.
Dermod, the eldest., a man of morose
disposition, was. strongly suspected.
by the villagers of being the cause of
several wrecks that bad taken place.
False lights had been used, and the
vessels,= lured to certain destruction
among the numerous rocks that stud
the treae,herous shores of Strangford
Harbor, and, although proof was ab
sent, T rumor pointed to the dark,
sombre man who answered to the
name of Dermod Dhu. •
• " Black Dermod was one oC the
many suitors who had been neglected
by Nelly, -but unlike the others he
had not given up all hope. Believing
that_ everything may be gained by
those who wait, he advanced small
sums of money, from time to time,
to the old man, her father • and,
when he found him th oroughly in
volved, once more began to urge his
suit. The father soon consented, but
Nelly, who disliked and despised
Dermod as much as she loved his
brother, declared that nothing should
tempt her to break her plighted troth.
" But the constant dropping of
water will in time wear a rock, and
at last when Dermod swore: that it
she did not marry him he would send
her father to prison, she, knowing
that the shame would kill him, beggid
for a month's'delay, and putiniseo

over her lover's success, while he
went forth to battle with the world
and win it.
"True, he had one chance, to ex
plain which it is necessary to look
back at events that happened a few
months, before the commencement of
this story.
" One evening a beautiful - cutter
yacht, with the Stars anti Stripes fly
ing at .her masthead, rounded t.
John's point and dropped her anchor
at Dundrum Bay. She was the pr
erty of an American, gentleman, Mr.
Winthrop, who was making a coast
ing tour around the Emerald Isle,
accompanied by his daughter and a
party of friends. For ' several days
the yacht remained in the hay, the
tourista - arn using themselves by climb.
ing the Mourne Mountains, and mak
ing occasional trips to Strangford
Lough to visit Gray Abbey, the ruins
of the old Augustine Monastery of
Moville, and the numerous castles
that are scattered about in the vicin
One day, about a week after her
arrival, the cutter rode at anchor on
the crest of the big round billows,
which swelled up, spread and tumbled
over lazily, their glossy surfaces
scarcely broken by a ripple ; after
the' sun had junk in the waters a
thin brassy belt of light was seen on
the verge of the horizon ; the air be
came thick and leadlike, no star
broke through the haze, and although
the sails flapped heavily against the
masts, as the
~yacht swayed to and
fro with the motion of the water, not
a breath of .wind was stirring. The
sailors were grouped about the deck,
smoking and spinning yarns to,while
away the tedium of the calm. ,
"On the little quarter deck a fair
haired girl was sitting talking to an
elderly gentleman. This was Kate
Wiethrop and her father, the owner
of the yacht.- The bright,gay-hearted
girl, ever anxious to be on the move,
was longing for a breeze, and Mr.
Winthrop turned to question. the
mate, an old salt;who had been many
years in the whale trade.
"'Lord. love - you, miss,' said he,,
•is its breeze you want? We shall
i have one before long that will blow
`the anchor into the foretop and the
hair off the captain's head. Look `at
that belt iof light just above the hori
zon ;. if that don't mean a hurricane
I'm a Dutchman.' And he hurrieti
forward to see everything close reefbd
and,,made taut.
" This bad scarcely been done when .
the tempest came suddenly upon
them with all the hOrrorieno common
to a storm on the northeastnoset:
The broad billows, mountain high,
threatened. to overwhelm Ahem; the
roar of the tempest as it struck. the
yacht was terrible; the uprearing
waves charged upon her like armed
squadrons, anti all was confusion'aid
terror; for an instant the cutter waa
motionless, then she reeled over On
her beam-ends, everything went to
leeward, and all_ on board thought
their last moment had tome ' •'but
after the , first gusts of wind :14,4
rushed shrieking past, the yacht,.
trembling in every Plankit slowly
righted, and then - - drove awiftly•to
wards the shore. .
"As. the vessel Heemed,dooracd to

pasaed•nnder her stern, and a voice
vas heard above the storm
rope was ,thrown and a wan
lumded on board. /Ele- sprang to the
wheel and shouted, just as the raan
at the lookout vried. 'Ereakeirs
ahead!' ,
"tilantin your stub - races! Ease
off to larbOard !'
"The sailors rushed to obey, and
the yacht, answering her helm, swung
round and entered a narrow channel
With breakers on both aides of It.
For a fel minutes, whiO seemed in
eternity; she ,held her Icourse, and
then the' passage wldeoed, and, like
an ocean bird rushing its native
element, she' rounded t e point and
stood out to sea. : l • '
"The worst of the; danger pan
over, and after a short time, as the
gale slackened, the cutter was tafely
anchored in Strangford harbor—
those on' ,board owing their lives' to
Carrick °Tatra], the smartest sailor •
on the eastern coast.
" Old Mr. Winthrop was not un
grateful ; he offered the brave young
man a farm in the green lands across
the Atlantic, telt Carrick preferred
the old home, and, besides, if he had
gone, he would hive to leave Nelly
behind him, for she would not desert
her old father in bis troubles. How
ever, Mr. Winthrop' told him he
would give him time to reflect upon
his , offer,•and that be would write to
him on his arrival in London.
On the day that Carrick met
Nell,y, at the trysting plaCe on the
mountain, be had.,received a letter
stating that the yacht was off Kings
town, and asking him to,come and
meet her passengers in Dublin.
4 Without any adventures by the
way, Carrick reached the capital,
where he saw his kind friend and ex
plained his position. Mr. Winthrop
at'once gave him sufflcient:money to
pa 4 y off 03d Hara's liabilities, and to
strrt him afresh. He then offered to
take•the young man back to Dent
drum on board the yacht; telling
him the whole party wished to be
present at his wedding, and that he
hoped still to persuade him to cross
the Atlantic. The cutter made a
quick Passage, anchored in. the bay,
and, on the evening of her arrival,
Carrick was landed at the foot.of
Slieve Donard.
" Before he went to Nelly's cottage
he determined to climb the hillside
and look once more at the old tryst
ing place where they had carted so
sorrowfully a few days before.
4 He did so, and, on reaching the
overhanging ledge, found himself face
to face with his half-brother, Dermod
"So you have returned 1' said
"'Yes, and snecesaful replied-his
brother; I have returned in time to'
prevent the villany you have plotted.
I have returned with the money to
release Denis O'Hara.'
" 'Liar V.
" Carrick's reply was a light laugh ,
as he turned .to descend the cliff. '
Hoping to take him at a disadvan
tage, Dermod sprang upon him, and
seized him by the throat. The two
brothers were equally matched as re
gards height and strength, but the
quiet, steady life of the younger gave
him a - treatadvantage over his dis
sipated opponent.
" As they struggled they drew near
er and nearer to the smooth and slip.
pert' edge of the cliff that went down
nearly a hundred feet sheer to the
sea. Dermod's hold was growing
weaker and giving way, and he was
about to beg for mercy, when his
brother's foot caught in the tangled
fern and they fell, Carrick rolling
over the precipice.
"With' death before his eyes he .
clutched desparingly at the tough,
short bushes upon its brink; for a
few awful seconds he looked up at •
his brothel., and, with 9 cry of Cain!'
uponlAis lips, the branches broke and
he fell into the sea. As the waters
closed over him his whole life came
back before his eyes, the memory of
his love, their last meeting and his
promise to return. The frowning
face of Black Dermod came between
them, and then the dark waters sang
in his ears and all, remembrances
faded. With the voice of Nelly call
ing to him he , became insensible.
"The - end of the month arrived,
and Dermod claimed his bride. Nellie
had heard nothing of her lover, the
officers were ready to, take her father
to prison, audl she allowed herself to
he led to the, little village church by
the man she detested.
" Was she to - blame? Wail she
false to her love?
" Ah 1 how many pure young girls
have gone victims to the altar to save
some lather or brother from disgrace!
Surely the misery of such martyr
dom-is a sufficient punishment fee
the heartaches they have caused.
Who will try to judge when a girl
has to choose between her love and
her kindred ?
"the chapel_
— was decorated with
all the mockery of gaiety=flowery
garlands were twined round the pil
lars, roses were scattered in the path
—and the bridal party entered the
holy place. Among the spectators
Mr.' Winthrop and several gentlemen
from the yacht quietly took their
places without causing surprise, as
one of the sailors had informed the
villagers of their.wish to witness the
ceremony. .
" The bride appeared with her
father, surrounded by her kindred;
she was pile and trembling. , The
weight of heavy sorrow seemed to
have added years to her young life.
Dermod advanced to her, and the
priest was about to commence the
service when; from the strangers,

ASKING TOO Mucn.—A shy young
man of , Scotland for fourteen years
bad wooed the lassie of his heart.
One night Jamie—for that was the
young man's' name—called to see
Jennie, and there was a terrible look
upon his eyes; just as there is some
times when they have made qp their
minds to pop the question. And
Jamie came in and •sat down by the
fire . just as he had done every Tuesday
and k'riday night for fourteen years,
and he talked of the. weather, and
the cattle, and the crops; and the
stock-market, I was going to say—
but no, they didn't talk ;bout that;
and finally Jamie said : , ,
"I've known. ou for a long time."
" Yes, Jamie," said she.
"And—l've thought I'd ,always
like to know yOu, Jeanie." •
" Y-e-s—Jamie."
" And so I've bought—a—lot,
"So—tbat--w he n—"
" Yes—Jamie—Yes."

The fool had gone and bought a
lot in a graveyard, but :Jennie was
not discouraged. She knew her man
well!—after fourteen years she.ought
to—and so she said gently :
"Yes, Jennie."
" Don't you think 'twould be 'bet

A Pretty Rhine Legend
Once upon a time there lived 'be
side the Rhine a beautiful lady. She
had a lover who loved her, and whom
she loved in return. But after he
bad wooed her—not one year, but
three—he asked her Co marry him ;
and she, anxious to show her power,
merely an - swered:
a"Wait." .
"I have waited three years," he
said, " but at your bidding,. I will
wait once more—just once more."
Then he,wcnt away . and became a
soldier; and praise of his bravett
filled the land; but the lady ,wap ,
piqued by the thought that he +hao
been able to leave her even a year,
and when he returned she determiE!-
ed -to punish : him, though all the
while she loved him well.
He knelt at her feet and took her
hands in his; and said :
" Lady,.l hare come hack to claim
you for my, wife."
But all she answered was:
" Wait longer; a patient waiter is
not a loser."
" I will wait two years longer," he
said, calmly. "Ifl do not lose all
is well."
Then he left her again. She' had
hoped that he would plead for her,
and Milt she would be forced- to
change her mind; but .now he was
gone—gone for two long years. How
she lived through them she could not
tell,.•but they passed, - and again her
lover was before he.
" "I have waited patiently," was all
he said.
The lady yearned to east herself
into his aims, but pride was strong
within her.
" Wait longef," she said.
"No," he answered: "This is the
last time. It I wait now I will wait
At this she drew back haughtily.
"Then Wait forever," she said
Ile left her without a word. -And
now her heart sank in her bosom.
She wept bitter tears, and repented
in dust and ashes. When a year had
gone by, she could bear her woe . no
longer, and sent, her little foot-page
to her old lover, biddin,:r him bear
this message, " Come back to me."
But the message the little foot
page brought was just this:
Again she was left to her sorrow,
and two years glided by ; then once
more She bade her page ride over the
mountains to her lover's castle.
" Tell him I am _waiting," she said.
, The page rode away and r'ode
baCk. Ile stood before his 14dy and.
doffed his cap, and repeated themes
sage that had been given Min: '" The
patient waiter is not a loser."
. ".lle is punishing me," thought
the lady, and for two long years She
remained in her castle.- Her 'Nazi
was breaking—her health failed—
she knew death was not far distant.
Again she sent, her cruel lover .a
message. -
" Tell him," she said, " that I am
near my end, and that if I wait long
er before,l see him I shall wait for
ever." • -
The page returned, and stood be
side his lady's chair. His eyes were
full of tears ;-,his head was bent Upon
his breast; he sighed and hid his
plumed cap. .
The lady lifted hei• wan face. '
" Speak !" she said," the message.".
" Alas !" sighed the page ; "
would it were a more tender one."
*,t- Whatever it may be, speak,"
gasped the lady.
" The only message that I have,"
replied the page, is "'Wait forever."
"I am well. paid in my own coin,"
said the lady. _.‘ At last I have re
ceived all my own answers back..

on until she reaches the heart she
threw away." %- -
