A DESERT DREAM
By E. and H. Heron.
Ol!' TJJK four who bad steamed past

these two Lee-Carson wn the worst
Tlio fever mist was drawn like a silk
en cobweb low across the swamp, bid
ing the black eye-shaped pools and the
variegated putrescence of rotting vege-tatioc-
The heavy air rang with the
shrill pinioning of wild-fowl changing
their haunts, und the ceaseless "trout
tront" of the bullfrogs in the quagmires
The two men were making a fire on a
dark green ridge somewhat rnised
tbore the chilling level of the marsh.
"The mist is rising," said Lee-Carson;
"oh, for a sixth-story attic!"
"I'd better go and shoot something
before it gets any higher," said the
"What was it you knocked over down
there?" nodding back at .the swamp.
"Onlyt long-beaked atrocity, species
unknown. A brace of duck or a wid
geon would suit us better."
"Cive me flesh and not fowl the ooze
bred, mud-breasted progeny of this for
saken swamp. Give me corned beef or
German sausage, for I'm sick of fenth
"Three more days should do it," re
marked Grammcl, cheerfully, with a
broad optiinistio glance westward,
where, however, there was no reassur
ing break in the dead sea-like level of
the horizon, above which brooded a sul-
''Then go and loavo me here with
; food nnd ammunition. You can come
j back for me afterwards."
j "I'll get supper first," said Grammcl;
; "keep the fire in."
I hen his companion was gone, Lee
! Carson lay down beside the smoulder
ing blaze, and his eyes wandered slow-
ly over the unending vistn of seething
mist. Presently he begnn to talk out
"Grammcl could reach the highlands
if I were out of the way. I'm dying any
how, und it seems a pity
" 'A day less or more, at sea or shore.
Wo die does it matter when?'
".No, it doesn't matter. It's a relief.
Grammcl won't leave me, so I'll leave
He drew a shotgun towards him.
"Loaded for swamp-fowl," he said, as
lie snapped it and luid it on his knee.
"I'll aiot write a note to you.Crummel,
because you would worry yourself, be
ing a fool, No, I'll come to a nicely ar
ranged natural end. It's waste to let.
two men die when death only puts in'
a claim for one. Grammcl will get
through this and lecture before the Ge
ographical society about the swamps
and the forests and our scientific re
searches, and then he'll write a book
with the help of a female literary
cousin, and marry her afterwards, and
then there'll be little Grammels, and
I I'll be forgotten."
Then he made his arrangements
with the gun. It had a 32-lnch bar
rel, and Lee-Carson's hand was un
steady, for he was very weak. There
fore, when the charge sputtered into to
the mud and brush behind his sbonlder,
he sank down insensible.
When Grammcl returned he found
the fire blackening, and his comrade
with his feet tangled in a tuft of grass,
und the gun lying. Across hit chest.
Urammel examined hp hastily.
"So that was your little game, was it?.
As If I shouldn't have known I" he ex
claimed. "It's all so like the young ass

Within an hour the night had closed
in, and Lee-Carson, wrapped up in a
blanket and a couple of empty provi
sion sacks, sat blinking over the Are
made of dried reeda and the molSering
remnants of a forest, and shivered, his
head humming with the SO grains of
quinine which wag to be hit garrison
against the now almost due attack of
swamp fever. ,,', ;' , .
Qrammel, from the other side of the
Ore, watched him narrowly through the
smoke, and wondered how aoon - it
would be safe to make him comfortable

arrange the heap of reeds to humor his
companion's fancy. . "
Lee-Carson leaned against them nnd

Grammel glanced confusedly at the

"Take it off!" was the peremptory
"Let me make up the Are first," said
Grammel. temporizing; but he was
saved further argument, for the fever
wns gaining upon the sick mnn.
"What's thnt?" exclolmed Lee-Carson
nervously, struggling to sit up. "They
are coming! That's the trampling of
"Dare say they are," said Grammel,
with a vague wish that there was a hoof
within 200 miles of them. "You might
try to rest now."
Lee-Carson made no reply, but sank
back obediently on his blankets, where
he lay moaning and muttering in an
Thus the night wore on.
Then, because the desolation was so
intense, Grammel began to grumble;
his voice rang like a minor undertone
through the resonant booming of the
bitterns and the harsh chorus of the
frogs in the pools and fens around
"Half this tobacco's soaked," he said,
sniffing contemptuously at the hollow
of his hand, "and the rest tastes like
smoked porridge steam; but 1 suppose
It's better than breathing in this fetid
fog in its native nastiness. Pah! it's
chilly too. I don't think" He
Lee-Cur son wns Binging, a broken line
or two nt first, then bis voice rang out
"ThMs aa the spreading ocean
Conquers a sandy coast.
Bach title has borne us further
To man a lonelier post."
"It's only doggerel," he went on with
a weak laugh, "but it warms a man's
veins, nnd it's true; I tell you, it's true!"
The big man opposite sat very still
nnd listened. Lee-Carson ran on in the
irascible monotone of delirium:
"Fordison and Chester died, j-ou
know wiped out with fever. Fordison
died just at iluwn, a wet, low dawn only
as high as the tops of the trees. That
was in the forest, when we were mak
ing for higher ground. And Grnrumel
good old Grammel burled him and
plunted a rock on his chest."
A spurting blaze flamed out) of the j
reeds, and Lee-Curson half rose.
"You must do it to keep the hyenas
off, you know," he proceeded, solemnly.
"Do you think we'll find it an impedi
ment on Resurrect ion day ? But I sup
pose it's no wor.se thnn acofiln with ten
penny nnils is it, Gram?"
"Of course not !" answered Gramrnel.
"Do shut up!"
But Lee-Carson wandered on.
"And Chester tlio hyenns hnve him
if the crocodiles left nny. They're
birds of a feather, eroes und hyenas.
Whnt's one man's meat one man's
ment how does it go? I can't remem
ber!" he sobbed petulantly.
The red glow of the fire burnt like a
plnpue-spot on the broad dark breast
of tho waste ns Grammel fed it si
lently. The weary, hollow voice went on:
"You're looking very pretty this
morning, Alice, with the sun shining in
your huir. You knew I'd come back,
didn't you, darling?" He looked ncross
admiringly into G rammers bearded
face. "Let's set the rat-trap In the
stable where is it?v I can't find it!"
Then from the fnr distance of the
mnrshes come Indescribable noises
that sounded like Titans langhing, and
balls of fen-fire rolled, dimly seen,
through the fog, while Lee-Carson got
exceedingly afraid because he fancied
that he was on board a steamer on a
thick night, and that a collision was
Imminent, and the skipper not proper
ly certificated. .
"I tell vou. man. I Bee her Hunts!
There!" he cried,' strung like a harp
with excitement, 'pointing a Bhaklng
hand into the darknses.
"She's working round all right," said
Grammel, soothingly. "Can't you hear
the sailors singing?" adding to him
self: "If I can only get him on his
songs, that will quiet him down, per
Lee-Carson responded to this at
once, his eyes blazing
"I can hear them I P, Lord, it is
good!" he exclaimed, and seemed tolls-
ten; and be added, mysteriously: "But
It's not the sailors it's don't you
know their voices? why, it's Fordison
and Chester and end the rest."
- And the high trembling voice was
once more raised to join in the song:
"But northward, east, and westward.
And under the tropic sky.
The price that we paid to conquer
Wars the men who war proud to diet"
He chanted it over and over, till the
taut sinews loosened and he fell back
exhausted, and lay still for many min
utes." '-; ' 1 '- '
. Presently Grammel crept around and
covered him up carefully. Lee-Csrsoa's
sleep was the sleep of exhaustion, but
it was better than no sleep at aiu
After awhile Grammel too lay down
and slept.; '-' '' '
When Lee-Carson wok a huge red
moon on the hodxon seemed very doss
to hie eyes, and he called out, wildly:
- "Grammelt GrammU Curse, you,
. I - - . I ... .
And from the. other side of the fire
Gramme answered him, his dry lips
bleedinc aa they parted:
"Dead? Of course I'm notr.
' "What's death? began Lee-Carson
again. "Don't let that moon dance and
gleam in my eyes, it gets Into my brain I
Grammel, what's death?"
- 'A sleep and a forgetting,' " quoted
Grammel, at bis wits' end.
"No, It's not that!" Said the sick man
more calmly. "Grammel, come here!
Where are you?" he groped about for
the friendly band that met his. "Look!
look! the other side of the fire!" '
. Whet) Grammel could get his heavy
eyes open, he looked across and saw
nothing, only the snaky tongues of the
flame leaping at intervals into the
"There's nothing," he said, shortly.
Grammel had no imagination, hence he
was at a loss, not knowing what he was
expected to see.
"Nothing?" repented Lee-Carson,
peering anxiously forward. VNo, I see
kothing now perhaps I dreamed. I
think I'm going out. Most people die
about the dawn."
"not!" said Grammel, lamely.
Lee-Carson's lips parted in the old
whimsical smile. Presently he said:
"I've seen things, Grammel, and I'd like
to tell you what I saw."
Grammel was sitting close by, his
hands clasped round his knees. Being
the man he was, he said nothing, only
waited to hear. '
"Through the night I've seen them
galloping past, squadrons and squad
rons of mounted men our fellows, you
Grammel shook his head impercepti
bly. "I shouted to them I shouted who
we were, but they were riding fast east
wards." "No man rides east," said Grammel,
"You don't understand," said the sick
man gently; "you don't know who they
are. They're the Frontier Men of Eng
land! and their recruiting sergeant's
Death. Don't you remember?
" They ride for ever up and down
To guard the land they won.'
Dou't you see them don't you see
them now? They're calling me, and 1
can't go! Oh, the morning of life is
sweet, but this is better! The end is
coming, Grammel; it's coming fust!"
He lay down again moaning, and
Grammel mixed much brandy with a lit
tle mud and water and gave it to him.
In a little while Lee-Carson moved,
his face distorted in the torchlight of
the fire, as he shouted huskily: '
"Fordison, Chester, stop! I'm com
ing! I shan't be long, and then we'll
ride together. Grammel will come
too some doy. 'He'll never die between
sheets, good old Grammcl! I wonder
if he'll ride 10 stone as a ghost?"
He laughed out suddenly, and Gram
mcl muttered iu his beard:
"He's got it bud very bad."
"We'll rido past our graves together
and scare the beasts! We'll gallop into
the sunset! Who's with you? Ouk
wood and Tommy Brown, all of them!"
and in IiIb delirious transport he tore
the blankets from him. "1 have known
many good things in Hfe sea-dawns,
nnd ships rushing through the arteries
of the world, but this is better than
Grammel had started up and was lis
tening intently. Still the voice, strained
to breaking pitch, rung on:
"They start with us on our expedi
tions, they bend our armies. The
Frontier Men of England! Bcinforced
in every border-lizzlc by the bullet
by the stab by the swamp-fever. You
nt home, you needn't weep! " He
censed to peer anxiously out into the
gloom of the swamp. "Are you there,
you fellows? 1 can't see you. That's
nil right. No one dies alone in the
waste or the desert, you're always there
to see him die. 1 wish I'd told Gram
mel, he'd tell the rest. At every nd
vance they're with us, and when we
die, no man is left to die alone. Tley
are always there waiting." It almost
seemed to Grammel that he could hear
the trampling hoofs of that shadowy
A chill wind stirred tho vapors of
"I smell the dnwn." Lee-Carson
rnised his heud. "I'm coming with the
dawn. I know how it will rise, like
tho wet glistening side of a white bull
over the sodden rim of the marshes.
Oh, the glory of it!" he shrieked. "All
the men who have passed away into the
unknown and died on the edge of the
flood. All of them!
" 'For ever tiding up and down
To guard the land they won.'
And when Armageddon comes, they'll
be there, the glory of the nges! The
men who were planted with a stone on
their chests to mark the frontiers of
the world!" ' .
With an unexpected strength he
sprang up and tottered forward, his
voice still calling, os he ran with a
wild shambling run into the dimness
of the daybreak.
The light was filtering through the
cold gray air as Grammel came up with
him. Lee-Carson lay with his bead
among the brown leaf-sockets of a water-plant,
his hands full of black ooze
dead. Grammcl raised him with strong, ten

him oddly into the mists, "the Frontier

PLACE. The first mlrscU waa par
formed on the 'borders of the country of

the Sea of Galilee. 1 Kings 17:S-24 relates
two examples of Elijah's help to a woman
of tbla sauna region. Tba other miracles WC
the lesson were performed In the region of
Decapolls, on the southeastern shore of the
Sea of Galilee (Mark. I Jl.
I. Jesus Retires from Galilee for a
Time. V. 21. The reason for this
seems to have been the increasing op
position of the Jews as described in the
previous portion of the chapter, and in
the discourse concerning the- bread of
life which followed the feeding ot the
8,000 a short time before this lesson
(John 6:60-71). We learn also from
John 7:1 that "the Jews sought to kill
IL The Afflicted Daughter. V. 22.
Jesus hsd gone privately into a bouse,
but He could not be hid, and a Syro
Phoenician woman in her great anxiety
for help bad found Him. And she cried:
"Have mercy on me." Her daughter's
trouble was ber own. Her daughter
was "grievously vexed with a deviL"
The torment of this disease may be
learned from the description of similar
cases. One such, a boy, is described as
often falling into the fire and often into
the water (Matt. 17:15, 18). The spirit
makes him dumb, "and wheresoever
he taketb him, he teareth him, and he
foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth,
and pineth away" (Mark 0:17, IS). The
Gadarene demoniac was wild and fierce,

III. The Mother's Victorious Faith.
Vs. 23-23. "But ne answered ber not a
word:" He appeared to treat her with
neglect and indifference. It seems, by
what follows, as if He arose and left
the bouse. Various reasons are given
for this silence. (1) To test and deep
en the woman's faith. (2) "It seems
to us that this was not the reason so
much as that He might show His dis
ciples and all succeeding centuries
what a dauntless faith this woman bad.
Not for her sake, but for ours, she was
put off for awhile." A. F. Schauffler.
"HIb disciples . . . besought Him,
saying: Send her away:" Cure ber and
let her go. They interceded for her,
but partly because it was a trial to them
to have her crying after them.
"But He answered:" speaking to
the disciples, and presenting the diffi
culty in the way. The mother may
have overheard it. "I am not sent but
unto the lost sheep of the house of
Israel."' This was His present work,
nnd, till nis death, it was the best means
for finally reaching the Gentiles.
"Then came she and worshiped
Him:" By prostrating herself before
Him in oriental fashion.
