It was in the reign of Edward the Third,
and at a time of temporary rebellion
against the monarch and his valiant , son,
the Prince of Wales, that our tale opens.
The scene was a bearitilbl picturesque
part of the country in Berkshire ; and the
charming Barbara Claxton—the dreaming,
enthusiastic admirer of genius, eat beside
her lonely cottage door, watching the
shadowg deepen and darken as twilight
approttelmd. Her reveries were disturbed
by a stranger app Baring
hi breathless haste.
"Hide me, damsel," he exclaimed, "for
the love of Heaven ! quick—my foes are
approaching !"
For an instant Barbara scanned the
noble features, and well knit form of the
"Follow me," she replied, "there is but
one place wherein there is the least ves
tige of security."
• And she led him into the cottage, into
an inner room, where prostrated on a bed
of pain, lay a sick woman.
-I will lift my grandmother up," she
said hurriedly ; "and you must get be
tween the beds underneath her. It will
be very warm, but it is the only safe
place. Ido not think they will disturb
He dans he was ordered ; the bed was
spread down, and the old lady lay back
on her pillow, unconscious of the scene
which had just occurred. Barbara has
tened back to the door, and sat down in
her old place.
A moment later a party of horsemen
approached. They stopped ; and the lea
der cast a critical eye upon the lovely
"Surround the cottage my men," he
ordered, "and if he is here, we will soon
unearth him. Now my dreaming lassie,"
(addressing himself to the
_girl) "have
you even anything of a stray r
She looked up shyly, the color.tinctuat
ing on her cheeks as she returned, "A
stray, sir?" in meek tones. "No sane
man would straw hither."
-But he must be somewhere near here
and by your permission, rosebud, I trill
search the house," he observed.
-If you only please sir, to request your
men to cease their noise. My poor grand
mother is sick and dying."
The officer's heart. though stained by
guilt and bloodshed, was tender where
youth and beauty were the suppliants.
lie ordered his men to be quiet, and then
ettered with the trembling Barbara, who,
though trying outward to appear Calm and
unconcerned, was inwardly thrilling with
fear. What if he should find the fugi
tive ! She only knew too well that the
bloodthirsty ruffians would instantly kill
her on the spot, or perhaps reserve fur
her a fate worse than death !
When he entered, the officer cast a
.hick, searching glance around him_
There were nut two rooms m the cot
tage. and he could see through the loose
boards above that no one was hidden in
the loft.
`Will you have a draught of ale, sir"
she asked, pouring some of the fermented
beverage into a pewter mug.
lie took it eagerly, and quaffed it ; rind
then passed into the inner room. The old
grandame was muttering deliriously, hav
ing been aroused by the strange noises
outside. lie went over to her. looked at
her an instant and said, "shell be dead
pretty soon ; and i ron will have to come
to me, pretty lass.
Barbara bowed low.
"You are too kind, sir,", she said, "to
one so humble
"Give me a kiss, my lass," he exclaimed,
his rude eyes riveted. upon her; "for I
must hurry away from here before that
wretch gas too far in advance.

soning her face and neck.
"No. no!" she cried, "no, no, sir!"
But he hurried after her.

den in his arms, and kissed her over and
over, despite her violent resistance.
will come a,guin another day, my pretty
sweetheart!" He laughed as be released
her, and passed out. Trembling with
shame and indignation, she stood where
he left her until she had heard the retreat
ing clatter of the horses hoofs. Rousing
herself she went to the door, and found
there was no one in sight; she then re
turned to the room, closing the outer
door behind her, raised the invalid, and
allowed the stranger to escape from
"My poor girl!" (and his face flushed),
"I know not what to say," as his eye fell
on her crimsoned, tear-staiued counte
nance. "You have saved my life, and I
was powerless to protect you from insult.
You shall worthily be repaid by the one
whom you have rescued, when betterdays
have come."
He pitied her agitation ; he sympa
thized with the Dutiful heroic maiden ;
and a feeling deeper than be ever knew
for any living being stole into his heart.
"Can I yet tax you? kindness," be asked,
"by begging that I may be allowed to re
main here until it is safe for me to yen
tam abroad? If Igo now, this will
prove to be only a respite. Have you a
father? Can you disguise me?
The flush died out of her face, as she
reflected how to save her strange guest
There was something about him that
made her feel instinctively that she could
trust him, and interested her in his fate.
"No, my father is dead ; we are all that
are left," pointing to the emaciated form
in bed. "But I will give yon my father's
clothes, You can dress in them, and
will say you are my uncle from Yorkshire."
Re fell nailily into her plans • and she,
placing a bundle before him, retired into
the inner room. When' Bhp emerged, she
could scarcely recogniza in the bowed, de
crepid old man, with a silvery wig, the
handsome, manly, youthful stranger of a
few moments before-.

than the majority of her sex, and bad

Days lengthened into weeks, and a
warmer fettling than that of friendship
sprang up between them. As yet, be had

"I must leave you now, sweetheart ; " he
said, throwing himself down .beside her
one day ; "but I cannot go away content
until you give me the right to return.
Will you Barbara, my love, my life, come
to the church," be pleaded, "and, let the
pied, solemnize our vows, and I will de
part happy ? Will you Baybara, dearest ?"
Whut could she say ? She had risked
her life for him once—she would willing
ly sacrifice all now. Led on by his words
she could not resist him, but blindly, de
votedly followed him to the altar.
What he whispered to the priest ere
the ceremony took place, elle did not
catch with her car.
"You will not my love, my sweetheart,"
he said, "because I have uot ,revealed my

He Mlle at last, a star glittenng on his
breast., and his array kingly. Her heart
fell within her as he hastened to her with
out-stretched arms.
"Barbara, my love," he cried, folding
her to his breast, "I have come at last - !
But why do you shrink? Are yon not
my own true love still ?"
"And are you —" she queried.
"Edward to you, to the world the Prince
of Wales, the heir to the throne, - he said.
"They were seeking my life—the rebels!
But why do you look pale? I hare made

"But the prine r she cried. "All

sternly. I will resign all pretensions to

For a moment the bliss of being once
more within the arms of her beloved, in
toxicated her senses; - but then her reso
lution was taken.
"My lord, —"
"Hush. Barbara r And he placed his

—Then, oh believe what I say is only

Our secret shall ever be faithfully locked
in my breast ; my last breath shall be
dr.twn in supplicating a blessing on my
prince—my king."
..I.tiever!" be exclaimed, gazing on the
slight, exquisite form of his- beloved that
was even BOW trembling with emotion.
"But it must he so. Edward, my love,

not blight your own precious life as well

He was silent fur a moment; her words
fell with full force upoa his heart ;• she
spoke the truth ; but the struggle was too
great to endure quietly, and lie wept like
a child.
"Tour wisdom is greater than mine,
Barbara," he cried iu a hoarse voice ; -you
are more worthy of rubies. Oh cursed
fate that divides the peasant from the
prince. Barbara, be merciful !"
"I am merciful, my life Y' she cried, her
cheeks glowing with passionate love
"more merciful to you than you are your

"1 accept my destiny," he said, bowing
his head ; you have prevailed. .1 live no
longer for myself, but for my peophi. God
bless you for ever, and when you need a
friend come to Edward." •
Her emotion was equal to his own. and
she turned away and wept unrestrainedly.
She had given her all up freely.
Time passed. Often news of the Black
Prince's prowess fell upon her ears; she
never heard his name hut it was linked
with braverrA?r goodness; the nation re
vered him.
The old mcandame died. Barbara,
whose heauty " bemme each day more strik
ing, was left alone. She sent a petition
to the Prince.
"A cousin of mine, friendless, forsaken,
craves a situation as page, messenger, or
in some post near your highness. In re
membrance of the past, I pray, grunt this
request of your faithful
Perhaps Edward divined her meaning ;
perhaps It was only olden memories that
shook him; but he trembled strangely as

with his own band: ,•s

A Pri Donna's Revenge
The celebrated poison of the Borgias is
said to have been' produced by causing
some animal to swallow certain drugs of
a deadly nature. aft&rwhich it was sus
pendedby the hind legs, and the foam is
suing from its mouth during its dying
agonies was carefully collected. This
proved to be so- subtle a poison that,
though certain in its effects. its presence
never could be detected in the body of the
murdered man.
However much we may doubt the elli
mcy of such a method, it appears certain
from a drama Avhich recently startled an
Italian city, that poison may be conveyed
in an apparently very innocent manner.
A young singer. a Miss had been
PO successful in her debut in opera, at
Pavia, as completely to eclipse the attrac
tions of the lady who Ii el hitherto been
the prima dOllllll and the supreme favor
ite at the theatre where she sang.
Vengeance is pros erhially an Italian
passion. and the ex-prima donna, finding
herself outshone by the superior charms
and accomplishments of the new favorite,
meditated revenge, which she endeavored
to obtain by the assistance of a young
man madly attached to her,and so blindly
devoted to her will that like some follow
er of the Old norn •cf Hai ilount«in, he
would halve thrown himself from a preci
pice at her bidding.
Miss was, passionately fond of
the.,odorof moss roses, and was - gratified
at receiving every evening, from an appar
ent admirer a bouquet of these flowers.
This limpet was regularly thrown to her
at a certain stage of the performance, and
as regularly placed by her in the belt she
wore around her waist.
One evening, • however. the bouquet
was larger than usual. as it contained a
bunch of green leaves in the tx - intre, form
ing us it were, a heart. Too voluminous
to be worn in her .cress, the young singer
passed the bouquet to her maid, rixpiest
ing her to carry is to her dressing room,
whilst she hiTself continued the part she
was playing.
Ou the falling of the curtain she repair
ed to her dressing room, expecting to see
her maid NI aiting for Ip.r at the door :tint
not seeing her, she pushed it open, when
a eight met her eyes which called forth 1.
cry of horror from her lips. The poor
girl was stretched out on the floor utterly
unconscious and apparently a corpse.
The screams of Mies L—attracted
several persons to the room. who laid the
maid on a couch, but could afford her no
assistance, as she hardly showed any signs
of life. Nu one thought of the bouquet
which was lying in a corner of the room,
almost trodden under foot. .
Suddenly a neon with convulsed and
agitated katures, rushed into the room
exclaiming in a voice stilled with emo
tion :
'• The bougliet! the
_bouquet; where is
Every one made nay for him, as they
recognized Miss physician, who
continued to rypeat
" The bouquet ! Where is the bouquet ?"
Seeing., however, that the young singer
exhibited no signs of suffering, he hasten
ed to succor her dying maid, still, howev
er, asking for the bouquet.
His strange perdistency at length drew
the attention of the listantlers 'to the
hitherto neglected tiower,:, which still lay
in a corner of the .room, and they were
.handed to the doctor, who seized - them
with a species of fury.
why do you attach so Much im
portance to the bouquet ? asked Miss
. "It is poisoned," replied the doctor.
A shuddering cry of terror run through
the assembly, and the singer had barely
time to comprehend the terrible fate she
had. so providentially esatped, at the ex
pense of another,:when the curtain • rose
and she was forced to reappear on the
stage. • •
:With-cheeks as white as alabaster,

StatisticA of Human Lift!
According to a French statistician. fak
ing the mean of Many accounts, a man
50 years of age has slept (;,000 days work
ed 6,500, walked $OO days, amused him
self 1,000 days, was eating 1.500 days.
was sick 500 days etc. Ile ate 17,000
pounds of biead, 16,000 pounds of meat,
4,600 pounds of vegetables, eggs and fish,
and drank 7,000 gallons of liquid, name
ly, water, coffee, tea. beer, wine, etc.. all
together. This would make a respecta
ble lake of three hundred square feet stir
race and three feet deep, on which a small
steamboat could navigate. And all this
solid apd liquid material passing through
a human being in 50 gears! Verily there
is after all smile truth in the story of the
ogre who drtuk the lake dry, to catch
the fugitives that was sailing over it. Anv
man can do the same—only give him
Lome ?
This estimate is. however, made for a
Frenchman. Fur an American we have
to modify it, by lessening the number of
days he denotes to amm•ements, and in
place of this substitute 1,010 days for
quietly speculating how to get more of
the almighty dollar, 1.500 days for travvl
ing by steam and horse power. and 2110
days for waiting for means of transporta
tion. The latter number is ha no means
over estimated for the inhabitants of New
York or Philadelphia; or other large cit
ies of the Union.
Influence of Tree% Upon health.
Dr. Max von Petteukoner, of Munich,
Germany, has been investigating the san
itary influeuces of forest for some time,
atia lies just published a mass of inform,.
tion, gathered from widely dilferant sour
ces, which is of much importance. The
gist of it is that forests have a very ap
preciable in checking the progress of chol
era or other contagious diseases; that well
wooded countries, other things being
equal, are the healthiest, and that marked
sanitary enanges are sure to result front
the denudation of a territory by cutting
down of its trees or by planting of gard
ens and fumses where no trees exist. In
proof of these theories, Dr. rettenkoner
has many reports from medical meu of
India, showing that jungle villages are
much less liable to be visited by cholera
and others, and that villages densely
shaded with tamarind trees are remarka
bly exempt from the disease, as shown by
observations through a lung series of years.
The statistics-of cholera in Germany for
the last forty years, also show that the
well wooded provinces have had a ranch
lower rate of mortality Onut the others.
