When the shroud of flame en wrapt tilm
For a chill and watery tomb,

Its long of triumph bore,
And shining angels met blm

Among the host of lioaven
A glad new voice Is known,
And sadly from our songs we miss

The songs we loved of yore,
The voice that thrlll'd us sweetly
Will sing to ui no more.
Oh faith that thro' all trials
Can lift the soul on high,
And light the martyr's path way
To realms beyond the sky,
Beyond the flame and terror
Triumphant sounds the song,
He " holds tho fort of heaven"
And waits the coming throng,

THE PRISONER'S ESCAPE.
ARION HYDE was a cripple, but
father was warden lu the prison. Among
the prisoners waM one at the registering
of whoHO name at his entrance Marlon
had been present, and something in his
youthful though sullen face- attracted
her pitiful glance. He had etolen repeat
edly front hie benefactor, and finally had
admitted into the house In the night
time a gang of burglars who had secured
considerable booty, and made off with It
in safety, save one, after severely pound
ing the proprietor of the house. This one,
who was not able to make his esca por
trayed the complicity of the young mau
in the aflUIr, Who waa tried, convicted,
and sentenfted. There was no redeeming
feature, apparently, to the story, but
somehow, that face haunted the girl's
gentle thought. Perhaps it was because
she had a young brother who was a wild
lad, ..wandering just now in disgrace, no
one knew whither, and all the more ten
derly loved by Marlon, because of his
sad ways. One day, as she leaned on the
window-sill, looking with a wistful sad
ness into the yard at the prisoners, one
of them looked, and changed as he was
in every way, thin feature, she knew
again the black, sullen eyes that yet were
somehow like an angry , obstinate child's.
Her glance followed him as though fas
cinated, and as he passed from sight she
sighed softly, and went in to look at the
prison record for the poor lad's name.
It was Aymer Preston. The next she
knew of him he was in the sick ward.
For a few weeks she saw bini there, but
the gloomy eyes never softened, only
gazed straight before them from their
hollow sockets, or hid themselves obsti
nately behind their wasted lids.. ITe
never spoke, ho scarcely ate, and the
prison physician told Marion that he
was dying from sheer inanition.
" It's my opinion that he's trying to
starve himself to death," he said.
Marion drew near the sick bed.
She bent over him and spoke with gen
tle firmness. But she might as well
have talked to the blank wall, for all
the sign he gave of having heard her.
Marion left the ward with a shocked and
" Let me know if there is any change,
or anything that I can do," she then
said to the doctor.
But at dusk the physician -was called
away by a serious illness in his own
family, and near midnight the assistant,
going his rounds, found Aymer Preston
dead in his bed.
"It's either make-believe or heart
break," Dr. Putney said, sharply, when
word was brought him, and he ordered
that Preston's body should be kept wrap
ped in blanket, and not removed till he
The order was obeyed, but when three
days saw no change in the body Dr.
Putney having meantime examined lt,it
was removed to the dissecting room.
Marion Hyde's window commanded a
view of this mysterious and horror-inspiring
apartment A s she stood at her
window that night she thought with a
-vague thrill of pain of tho one cold, still
tenant of that terrible room. . She was
not a timid, superstitious creature, nor
by any means given to nervousness ; to
when she saw tho window of the dissect
ing room slowly lifted, and a gaunt,wild
face appear at the opening, instead of
creaming or running away, she stood
still, fthe knew that her heart was
throbbing wildly, but she knew also that
It was no phantom she looked upon. Dr.
Putney had been right all the time,
Aniyer Preston was not dead, and thus
he wa making one wild effort for lllier.
ty. Marion Hyde stood and watched
him. Bhe could not have called out Just
then If he had been the most desperate
and hardened criminal within those
walls. Iiesldes,the poor wretch was only
mocking himself. He could not escape
now unless by a miracle. Hhe raw him
stop presently beside a window, which
opened Into an upper hall, and after an
effort raise It, and slowly draw lrimself
through. Obeying an impulse which
she could not at that moment control,
Marlon softly opened her door, and pass
ed on without her crutch, for foar of the
noise. Hhe reached the hall just as this
poor, wasted creature, after a brief rest,
was urging his half paralyzed limbs to
renewed eilbrt. At the sight of her, he
gnsped and dropcd In a swoon, and
Marlon hurried to his side. Hhe dared
not leave him, so she waited, rubbing
Ms cold hands between her tender palms
till at Inst he opened his eyes, and she
made htm comprehend that she wanted
him to come with her.
" I won't go back to prison," he whis
pered between his set teelh.
" You need not," she said, Hlmply,and
led hi in to her own chamber.
There was positively no other place
that was safo from the strict search that
she knew would be Instituted as soon as
he was discovered to bo missing. Hhe
procured him some garments which had
lielonged to her brother, and she got him
some food that would be safe for him to
eat after his long fast. He regarded her
movements with the Incredulous wonder
of a child.
14 What bus been the matter with
me V" he asked after awhile. "I could
not stir any more than though 1 was
dead, but I knew all that was going on
about me. Ugh I It was frightful, wait
ing there in that dissecting room. I be
lieve it was only the horror of it helping
me to break the frightful spell."
" I suppose you were .In a sort of a
trance,'' Marion said, thoughtfully.
" What are you going to do with me2"'
he asked again.
" I don't know, I am sure," she said,
with a sigh. " But you arc safo here till
" I don't expect you believe me, but L
am as Innocent of the crime for which I
was brought here as you are."
" Guilty or Innocent, I pity you you
are so young."
Concealing hint till tho hue and cry
were over, Marion smuggled him through
the gates in a woman's dress and with a
basket of soiled linen. And so the mys
tery of Ainyer Preston's escape re
Tho years moved on. Marlon was
twenty-five. Her father was dead. Her
idolized brother had perished in a brawl.
She was alone in the world ; an inva
lid, living on the merest plttauce earn
ed with her needle, but the same sweet
faced, sweet-voiced girl that had won tho
hearts of the prisoners In the gloomy
abode of which her father was warden.
One day she was sent for, to see about
some embroidery. She was received by
a young lady, and something In the
girl's bright face drew Marlon's glance
unconsciously. Where had she seen
thogeeyes, so largo and so intensely
" Why dtt you look at me so V asked
the young girl, with naive eagerness.
" You remind me of some one I have
known," Marion answered simply.
11 No one ever accused me of looking
like any one but Itobert before," laughed
" Ah, yes, you do. I see the resemb
lance now quite strong," and Marion's
face flushed with emotion. " Perhaps
you are related to him ; his name was

ed eyes, with the worda ou her lips. She
was back, however, in a trice, and with
her came a tall, dark-haired,' heavily
" Marion Hyde! Is it possible?"
he exclaimed, clasping both the little
trembling hands, in his and putting
them over and over again to his lips,
which were quivering with emotion.
" Surely you know me V"

An Egyptian Romance.
ISMAIL PASHA, late the Kgyptlan
Finance Minister, was a remarkable
man. Originally one of the lowest
grooms in the stablus of the Khedive of
Chosbra, bis first step on the ladder of
fortune was gained by marriage with a
liberated slave from the harem, who
speedily Initiated him Into the mysteries
of that Institution, and showed him how
by artful use of harem Influence a clever
man might raise himself to any emi
nence In the State. Ismail profited by
his wife's advice cultivated the harem
through her, and found himself eventu
ally the most powerful subject In the
kingdom. He amassed an enormous
fortune, and his expenditure was lavish
even beyond Oriental magnificence. His
harem was one of the largest and most
celebrated in the Kast. It consisted of
300 women, all young and beautiful for
Ismail would have no women in his
harem over the age of thirty and two
corps Uc battel, one of French, the other
of Hindoo girls. Every night he was
conducted to his chamber by 20 young
girls, clothed in fantastic and magnifi-
cent attire, blazing with gold and Jewels
each carrying in her hand a gilded taper
stick, and each taper giving out a differ.
eut colored light. Immediately after his
death, his harem was bought up by rich
beys and pachas, and fabulous prices
were said to have been paid for some of
the beauties. His jewels are computed
to be worth $3,250,000, and, as every
thing is forfeited to the Khedive, that
astute ruler will make a good thing out
of the death of IiIb Finance Minister.
Sailors' Practical loke.
A PRACTICAL joke was played
nearly thirty years ago at a cocking
main In Havanna, by some sailors be
longing to an American man-of-war.
The sailors had been betting and losing
day after day, at the cock pit, which was
the amusement that they most affected,
until they were all left without a cent.
In that plight the sailors were when the
man-of-war was ordered off to San Fran.
clsco. A number of months afterward
the vessel returned to Havanna and the
Jack Tars had fully matured a scheme
for vengeance. Drawing all their pay
and borrowing all the money they could
in addition, at the first shore-leave they
started for the cock pit, carrying with
them their gold and a bag of mystery.
Some of the ship's officers surmising
that something was in the wind, follow
ed, but not even to them was the sailor's
secret divulged. Scarcely had they
reached the pit when an excited Span
lard sprang into the little arena, where
a battle had just ended. Under his left
arm he carried a magnificent gamecock,
in his right hand he flourished a bag of
doubloons, and he yelled forth a chal
lenge on behalf of his bird against any.
thing that wore feathers.
No other challenger could have been
half so welcome to the sailors, for dur
ing their former unhappy experience he
had been their bete noir, raking in their
gold pieces almost as fast as they could
lt them. His verbose and grandilo
quent defiance was promptly accepted,
the money was stuketl, and the Ameri
cans shook their champion out of the
mysterious bag. A nondescript creature
it was, with a great, solid body, roughly
covered with chicken feathers and tar,
Its wings and tail clipped, its head broad
and adorned with a keen curved beak,
with long, sharp talons at the ends of its
toes, instead of gaffs upon its legs. De
spite its strange balf-dfaguine the officers
recognized it at once as an American
eagle. - But the Spaniards knew nothing
about it, and the one who had made the
match was furious, deeming himself in
sulted by the pitting of such a miserable
looking creature against his splendid
fowl. The alcade ordered, however, that
the tight should take place, according to
the terms of the challenge, and the Senor
tossed his lrd into the pit. It was
ready to fight, of course, for a gameeovk
of good blood would not hesitate to
attack a bird as big as the fabled too. IrW
the first notice the "American game
chicken," as the sailors had christened
their bird, received of the presence of an
enemy was a fierce attack. He calmly
looked down upon the gamecock strut
ting threateningly before him. Tbo
sailors were not without anxiety lest tho
keen gaffs might settle their eagle before
he got warmod up to his work, but fear
was quickly dispelled. The gameconk
dashed forward agnln. In less than a
second the Spaniards witnessed an as
tounding sight. The " American chick
en" placidly stretched out one great claw,
seized his antagonist by the head, drew
him up, and, applying the other claw to
his body, tore bis head oft" with a single
pull. Thei he proceeded to eat him. A
storm of imprecations and shouts of
astonishment rent tho air, but tho sailors
were too welt armed and too numerous
for the Spaniards, and so they got their
money and returne d aboard ship, laden
with more gold than they ever before
had, and carrying their chninplon in
Love and Revenge.
A black-eyed, fair-faced young person,
dressed In gray plaid sklrt,ovcrskirt and
panicr, red plaid shawl, brown hat and
blue veil, attracted the attention of As
semblyman John Dlllmeler and a epetS.
al officer, In Johnson avenue,BrookIynr.
on Friday night, and when they ap- '
proached they saw that a young mair
and not a woman was inside the clothes.
IntheStagg street police station the
youth described himself as Conrad
Lltzenbcrg, aged 19, a clerk of 123 Wal
ton street. He said that he was engaged
to a young lady, Miss Minnie R. Schur
man, and that another man had been
writing her insulting letters. He showed
the Sergeant three letters filled with in
sulting expressions. In one he begged
to see Miss Schurman in Johnson ave
nue. Lltzenberg said that he went there
with her, and chased him, but he es--caped.
He then concluded to dress in
his sweetheart's clothes, and try ttr
catch him. I had caught him," be
added with spirit, " he wouldn't have
written her any more such letters."
His sweetheart went to the police station
with bis attire, and received back her
own dresses. She corroborated her lov
er's story. She intimated that her an
noyer was a discarded suitor. N. Y.
A Triangular Scrimmage.
The Newburyport Herald says a novel
fight was witnessed In that city on Sun
day, between a rat, hen and rooster. A
ben Scratching near a water cask, , waa
suddenly interrupted by a huge rat, and
neither would give way. Finally the
hen made a pass with her beak, which
the rat dodged, and then the rat made a'
spring for her neck,which was not a suc
cess. At this juncture a cluck from the
hen brought up the rooster, who, like
a gallant cock, came into the ring to
take a hand himself. Then commenced
a triangular scrimmage with teeth and
beaks. The hen had lent him one right
in the smeller, which seemed very much
to anger the rat, who gathered for a
spring on hia antagonist, which was
prevented by the cock lighting upon
him and putting both spurs into his
body, performing the solemn tragedy of
harikari. Not satisfied with disembow
elling their enemy, they picked out bis
eyes and left him. (
A Schoolmarm who Objected to Being
An independent little Canadian school
marm snubbed one of her big sholar
who tried to make love to ber, and be

school she gave him a Bound flogging.
His parents sued her and recovered J3.W
damages. The next day the gM opened
school by saying : "I have whipped a

$3.50. Now, if any others of my
