By request these will be repeated,at  the  concert   to  be  given after tho  bazaar   which   will  be   held   .some  time this month.     A tableau entitled " Nationalities," was ^n������ of  the 'prettiest numbers given.     The  various nations and countries were  represented by some of our loveliest  daughters,   who' -were  .'beautifully'  costumed.s    Misses Peacey,  Smith  and Abrams representing Britannia,  America,: and  Canada^ while Ireland, Scotland,  Wales,  China and*  Japan were shown by Misses Milligan,   Abrams,   Harrison,  Cameron  and Shaw.   Miss Bate represented  British Columbia.    -Professor. Barrett's ���������waxworks" attracted a  lot. of.  attention, -especially,   among   the  young people.  The many figures representing  Shakspeare,   Napoleon,  Living  Skeleton,   Christopher 'Col-  umbus, &e., were humourously explained   by   Mrs'   Jarley     (Miss  Cameron) and.added much to the  The Ladies Aid oi St. Georges'  Pre.-byterian Church enteuained  M'S Shepherd and family on Tuesday evening, 2Gch ult.

The president, Mr Mac-   '  Phee,  gave  a lengthy address  on "  " FaVmers Mutual  Insurance," its  reliability and cheapness heing,the  chief--'points   dealt   with.      From  statistics  produced   it   was  shown  that   after  yeurs   of   trial   in   the  eastern   provinces  and   18   States  insmance ou farm property could <  be effected al from  85c. per $1,000  to $1.35,  thus putting it into   the  power of every o-ie to .jecure  themselves against loss  by fire and   the  necessity of having to receive aid  from  others.     A list was on hand  and started   by four  signing  their  names.        Liule ��������� discussion    took  place   as   it' appeared   to be a sure  thing for every one.  Mr T. ��������� Cairns had as is subject  " Successes and Disappointments in  Farming." He attributed disap -  pbintments mostly to working without sufficient knowledge of the work  and lack of means, and successes to  the applying of proper means to  the end in ���������View, Questions being  invited on what he (Mr Cairns)  had. advanced he was for a time  kept busy giving the why and the  wherefore of everything.  Mr 'Do'bso.n had promised to  speak on ''Thirty Years on the  Road " with humorous incidents,  but through illness was unable to  attend.

And with" each report, the flight of  the colored ball was accompanied by  a, chorus of groans and cries, that  'promised poor returns for the' prophet ' Ila'ssajq.'s future dealings with"  his  wretched people.

When  Rex  arrived  at  this   pleasant  solution   to   the   problem,   he   suddenly  remembered  there  was "one p.-rson  r.ot   taken   into   consideration       when  .thus settling  the matter.

"For a long time players have acted  against nature in seeking to give equal  power to each finger. On the contrary,  each finger should have an appropriate  part assigned it. The thumb has the  greatest power, being the thickest finger and the freest. Then comes the little finger, at the other extremity of the  hand. The middle finger is the main  support of tlie hand and is assisted by  the first. Finally comes the third, the  weakest one.  "AstoLthis Siamese twin of the middle  finger some players try to force it with  .all their might to become independent,  a thing impossible and most likely unnecessary.

' never had a chance. p Now it had come,
.     , and he might not only make his reputation,   but   ��500 ,as   well,   and   that   last
'would give" him all-that was best in the

'   -  and without it it.'might be years before he

, ���-'     ".I'll  lose no time,"  he said.    "I'll  do
'.    my best.'' ,,But all,the same it seemed an
��� almost  hopeless   task.'   'Fred   Emberson,
the thief, had had a good 12. hours' start.-
���< '   He had'���gone at 4, o'clock the'day, before
'to the bank to pay money in and to-cash'
1   '>a check, "as/usual, ready for* paying the
men's,wages on the morrow, and he had

*. '   cashed, . the i money   never  paid   in,   and
r'f ' Fred Emberspiv hau vanished.    ,
Mr." Ritchie-was a Hard and bitter man.
^He had been soured five years, before* by
tho disappearance of his' only* daughter.
She had met at the'house of some friends
she had been'visiting a man .with whom
'she had'fallen in love. He had been ineligible in every way���a poor mau with
no" prospects, with apparently nothing to
recommend him���but that made no diffcr-
% l ence'to her. ��� "  \ '
"������       Mr. "Ritchie   had   stormed ..and   raved.
had refused emphatically to, see him,and
had" forbidden  her ever to  mention  him
��� again. _ She^hnd refused. ", She had tried
^^~i.or"s6me months to induce the two men to
meet, she had persisted in sticking to the
, -man^ she j loved,_ and , then i_she_ had   run
away and,married'him. ,_>  't?" ~ '
*��� > t Mr., K��itehie' never forgave her���never
would.-"'He returned all her letters _n-
opened.^ He washed his hands of her and
,   * settled, down',  bitter- and  soured, ..to live"
��� out the remainder of'his life in hard work/
n   - .Marlow sent his men to' the station ti\
1    make inquiries,  and then mado his way
"   toward the rooms in which Fred Ember-
son had lodged  during  the year he  had
been with Mr. Ritchie.    He went up' to
them1; . questioning   the   landlady, as   he
went and getting no  information  except
that she had not seen Emberson since he
had left for his office the morning before.
He was almost giving up at last; when
suddenly a tiny sciap of cardboard fallen
between-- the  mantelpiece   and   the   wall
caught  his eye.     He* took his  penknife
-and 'began   forcing it  up.     It  might  be
nothing,   of  course,   but  he  had   turned
over every scrap,of paper and every book
in the room and he would miss no chance.
The cardboard came up slowly.    It was
wedged   in   fhinly   between   the   mantelpiece and the wall,-but he loosened it ot
.last and held it up to theiight. ~
When he saw it, he.gave a little gestura
of disappointment. It was the photograph of a child. That it belonged to
Emberson seemed the last thing likely.
- He called up the landlady and held it
out to her. She shook her head over, it.
She had.never seen it before, but it must
have belonged to Mr. Emberson, she said,
for her own daughter-had occupied the
room before he had had it, and the pkoto-
* graph was of no child they knew.
Marlow looked at it again and made a
"note of the photographer's name, which
was printed on the back. It-bore the address of a small town, and he frowned a
little as he looked at it. What had Fred
Emberson, a thief, to do with a little
lie shut np his poekefbook with a snap
and gave a final look around.
lie was just turning away when his
man came back fiom the station with the
information that Emberson had been seen
taking a ticket, not to London, as they
"had expected, but to a little place called
Staybridge. half way down the line. It
was a trick, of course. lie would go on
to Euston and pay excess fare and be lost
at once in the London crowd.
Still Marlow sent his man to telegraph
to the station at Staybridge,and waited,
'.���(Still  impatiently' searching the room,  for
the reply.
It came promptly. Only one person,
had come "by that train on the day before
and that, was a 'mechanic' in a working
suit apparently on the lookout-for work.
Evidently it was not Emberson, and Ma.r-
low decided that his".ouly chance now was
to go to Topping, where the photograph
had been taken.
,"' He started immediately,"; sending his
man on to London to try to get some information there and meaning to wait folium at Topping. He got out at a little,
.quiet country station. ,The town lay behind it���a sleepy market town full of
sheep and. cattle and farmers' gigs and
bright with spring sunshine.
He found the photographer easily
enough, and there a- copy of the photo-
. graph he had brought from Em Larson's
rooms.' It had been taken just about a
year ago. The photographer remembered
it distinctly,' because the woman who
brought the child broke down crying at
the finish for no reason at all that he
could make out.
"I suppose you know -nothing of her,
do  you?"   asked   the detective,   and  the
photographer shook his head.
"Xo/but she came here'from a place
not far from here;" he said., "At any
rate, T sent the proofs there���to a place
called Staj'bridge, about five miles away."
i Detective Marlow started ( a little.
Staybridge! He was on the road at last,
surely! ,Staybridge was the place to

remembered the braid on her frock' and
the braid on the child in' the photograph.
It "was the"1 same dress,  the ,same child,

In spite of himself Marlow hesitated.''

3f���ny People Are Color Blind.
A curious fact about the eye as re-
g.nds its perception of color is that one
in 20 persons is adicted with red blindness. In the normal eye the edges of the
retina are not sensitive to "the sensation
/ot red li<;hf���that K cannot see red color.
In sonic ��\vos this peeuliaiity will extend
itself to-half the exit ���t of the/ retina, and
in very many others (to no less indeed
than one in 20) this spreads over the-
whole of the retina. The possessors of
mch eyesywill confuse in the most curious
manner dark green and yellow with red.
This is not always apparent, but 'a few*
tests will- surely brings it out, and we
should be amazed to find "how many of us
are subject to this partial' color blindness.

Queer Tilings to Eat.
Just before the Franco-German war
a traveling quack in France employed
as his clown, after the fashion of the
day, a man named Tore, who testified
to the excellence of his master's cure
for indigestion by" swallowing corks
and pebbles.' After leaving the quack
he enlisted and in the presence of Dr.
Lorentz tore open a live cat, sucked
its blood and devoured it. He a'lso
ate in the same way living snakes,
grinding their beads between his teeth.
During the war he conveyed secret information for the French army by
swallowing a small box with a written paper inside it. but he was at la^t
detected by the Prussiaus aud punished as a spy.
One Time That the Great Actor Ola-
nppointctt His Audience,
The great French actor, Coquelin, used;
to tell with glee the following experience
in which he himself played the leading
part: ''
"I -was/tired out and so made up 'my
mind to leave the theater for a time and
go ���nd vegetate in some isolated country
place.    I went right "into the center of
"France and soon found myself nicely settled in a homely,; yet comfortable, commercial   hotel., ' I   did -not   want  to   be
known, so' I signed myself ,in._the book,
��� 'Frederic Febvre, traveler for .wines, spirits,'etc.'.  . '  l        '.-< .   .     <���-��..'
"At'the^table d|hote I soon became acquainted .with th'os'e' staying at the hotel. ' My neighbor on the right'traveled
for > a   firm   which   specialized   in   table
"delicacies.vmy ,neighbor on the left' was,
Jn the drapery line, another' dabbled in
oils, another for a'novelty in babies' feeding bottles. These gentlemen soon became
known to me, and I was myself asked the
name of'the house for which I traveled.
'For Claretie & Moliere,' I replied.
"Now, being a new hand at the game,
as,L said I, was, I was immediately inundated with tips, advice',' etc., as to the,
value and kinds of wine'I ought to go in
for] I carefully made a note of all these
tips,< intending as soon as I got by.nryself
to just as'carefully light^my cigar .with
them. '"   , ,       . ,
"During'dinner all went.on pleasantly.
A' certain little traveler, full of life and
conceit, commenced to give us a few recitations' and imitations���some of them
"fairly" clever, I must,confess. Her was
applauded, tremendously, and, -filledr up
with confidence and wine,the said:    -   ,

finished by saying:s 'I, am now- going.to
give y'ou an imitation of C^uelin. Pay
great attention, and you wwl all swear
that-itjs Coquelin himself.' i '*" V'

he had "finished, I rose ahd said:_ ".
" 'Yes,' you did  that'fairly^ well;"~but,
although I may appear conceited. I really

1 will try, however.'
"I" commenced. --I -gave something
from one of my favorite pieces and, as I
really think, quite excelled myself.
"Do you think they, applauded me?
Not at . all. They smiled and said,
'Thank you,' and almost appeared as
though they felt sorry for my ridiculous
attempt.* Later on, when all except'the
little conceited 'traveler had retired, he
came up to me and said:
" 'May I offer you a little friendly advice, sir? You aie a young hand at the
traveling game, I plainly see, and per-,
Ijaps wished to make yourself agreeable
this evening. Never, however, try to imitate a great actor whom you have never
seen. To imitate Coquelin one must
have seen him act. You did your best, I
dare say; but, oh, dear!' "

FrcsU anil Salt Seas. .
Those who know both the Mediterranean and Baltic seas cannot fail to be
struck with the, vast' difference in their
proportion of salt. . The Baltic is almost
fresh, particularly when, after' the. melting of the snows, the great rivers of
Prussia and the uighboring states discharge an abnormal volume of fresh water. The most salty water in the.world's
seas, however, must in all probability be
that of the great lake discovered by the
famous explorer Sveri. Hedin in Tibet,
which he likens to the Dead sea of Palestine. The entire bed of this lake appears to be one rugose crust of salt, and
the salt is. in such strong solution that
the boats and oars and clothes of Hedin
and his party were soon incrusted with
salt. Fish life in such.water is, of course,
im possible.

When Annie and I went together to the  state fair" held' at Ilobbswich, we  were  just engaged  to each other,  and every;  "  thing seemed roseate������nnd'lovely.        '       '  We bought oriental amulets of a.gentle-  ��������� man in a turban, who, when we inquired  as to' his nationality, said, "So help me  iMoses  I   am  a' Turk!"  and   at last  we  came upon the prophet's cave and entered  ' in.   The prophet, done up in flowing robes  and white wig and beard, presided behind  , a   counter   on    which    two * beribboned  baskets were set" forth, one marked ','La-  , . dies," 'the' other  "Gentlemen." ' It   ap-  , peared on "inquiry (hat the prophet saved  , time-by putting up a number of prophecies  in   envelopes,   as .busy   grocers   do  . ,   pounds of tea  and  sugar.    You paid 5  cents, and then a little green parrak'eet'  came down from a perch and picked put  , /' an envelope as he stood on the prophet's  * * finger.   Of course we bought. av prophecy^  each. Were we not engaged? Did we  not delight in the mysterious, as all lovers  '.. do, and after that hurry home to lake  high tea with,Annie's mother? We had  no time tofopen our envelopes before we  reached the table, arid as it seemed probable,that they would amuse the party 'we  1   produced them there.  "Ah!" said I, reading the words printed  on. a slip of paper within my  envelope.  .     "Ah,  I" shall  bo. rich  and  powerful  if I  lire.    Beware of speculation!"  'We all laughed, and Annie was called  ,.  .upon  to   read   her   fortune  aloud.     She  - openedthe paper laughingly, but no sooner had she cast her eyes upon it than she  turned pale. ,l_ ,  "Oh, dear!" she cried/ "Oh. how dread-  '��������� fill, just when I am so awfully happy!  Oh, John! Oh. pa! Oh", mamma!" .And  she burst into a Hood of tears and began  to sob bitterly. I caught the paper from  her hand and read those words:  "Lovely lady, you will die before the  violels^blooru."  "Vnd they bloom in May," sobbed An-  _ nie. s  "Surely, my dear, you don't believe this,  -" nonsense?" I ejaculated.  But Annie cried between hor sobs:  "Oh. yes, I do!    You  will be rich and  powerful, and yqu will marry some charming woman, but I shall be dead before the  violets blow!" <    '  "How absurd! A printed slip given  you by an old humbug in a fair booth,"  aaid her father.  In fact, we all said something, but Annie wept nntfl she grew hysterical, was  . Jed away and put to bed and was ill for a  week. The doctor was very serious over  the attack, and when she came down  stairs again she was pale and nervous  and.persisted in taking the prophecy as  though it were a revelation from on high,  continually repealing:  "I shall die befoie the violets bloom!"  It was quite Christinas time before she  began to be like herself again, and,\ although I loved hor better than over a'nd  she was always the sweetest little creature alive, I coulci not but wonder howl  such an absurd thing could have such an  effect on any one endowed with a grain  of common sense. I felt sure that, although Annie was merry and bright again,  she had not forgotten the prophecy, and  once when I spoke of the fact that we  wore lo be married in June she sighed  and said:  "Ah, John, spring comes before summer, and the violets bloom in May."  The worst of it was that the doctor  made such a serious matter of her condition and told us that he could not answer  for''the results unless we could rid her of  what he spoke of as a monomania.  Still the winter was not' bad." but when  April came we found her constantly wandering about the garden and watching the  violet plants, of which there were many.  As I coaxed her away from them I  used to wish that I could meet that old  wretch of a prophet and punish him as he  deserved, but he never crossed my path.  He had vanished with the closing of the  fair. It was well for him that this was  so. ;'���������.-��������� ���������-,...-  With May our trouble grew greater.  We who loved Annie were in despair.  The mother arose at daybreak to nip off  the violet buds. But there were other  gardens in the place, and Annie might  find them there, for now it was really  the time for blooms. We knew not what  to do. I remember that it was the 10th  of May when I. bethought me that a trip  to the city might divert Annie and went  to the house to invite her. My dear girl  met me at the gate, holding a violet leaf  in her hand.  "How green rliey are just before they  bloom," she said.  I took the leaf from her and threw it  away.  "Forget all about those violets, love,"  said I. "Let us take an outing. Come  to New York and spend the day."  ��������� She smiled and said that she .would like  that very much and ran away to dress,  whii������ I talked with her mother, who was  very sad and anxious;  "I fear for her mind and her life," she  said.  I rwso had my terrors, but my darling  came back looking so bright and pretty  that I began to feel hopeful again, and  we started on our way quite menily.  We all knowhow people who "visit New  lork but seldom amuse^themselves. ' We  saw all that .was to be seen - and had  lunch at a fine restaurant. We had finished and were about to seek other amuse-'  menrs when in turning "the corner of a  busy-avenue we came upon a little museum where curiosities - were exhibited/  end there was every afternoon a' perform^'  ant-e of snro* kind and at tlae foot'cf a  long line of attractions read these wordb:  "The prophet's cave. Don't fail to have  your fortune told by the only surviving  prophet!"  "The prophet again!" cried I. "Now  for it!" . u   < ",  Annie clutched my arm nnd tried to pull  me away, but Lrefused to depart.  "My dear," said I, "a dime museu'm is  a very vulgar show, but 1 intend to interview that prophet and tell him my opinion of him and shall be obliged "to take  you in with me."      ' <  As I spoke I stalked through the door  and, having'bought my ticket, made my  way directly to the curtained archway  over which I saw the words:  "The prophet's cave. Mr. Mesrom is  the onlvv prophet yet alive."  "Ah, -" i said as I read this, "and it is  very probable that in a little while the  world.will be entirely destitute of prophets.    I intend to finish 'off this one."  As I expected, Mr. Mesrom was our old  original prophet���������white >vig, beard, robe,  baskets, parrakeets and all as' before.  Two' young people were just' departing  with their envelopes in their hands, and  we' had the place to ourselves., I walked  up to the counter, and, fixing a stern gaze  upon the prophet, said, in a low voice:  "Mr. Mesrom, 1 have on account to set-  'tle'with'.you."      ,      ' >  The"' prophet retreated as far ��������� as the  wall-of his "cave" .permitted.  "Look a-here, sir," said .he, "I ,don't  wish no luoublo with no gent, but if you  are looking for any you will be bounced.  My remarks' ,are not' personal, but* any  gent making trouble in this museum 'will  be bounced by the management."  "All rightv" said I. "I suppose, being a  prophet, you don't mind answering ji few  questions?" ' -    -  "Not if they're" civil." said he.^  "What I want to ask you, Mr. Mesrom.  is this," said I. "What the deuce do you  mean by putting' up in .your envelopes  prophecies calculated to alarm nervous  females���������prophecies of death and disaster? Such; a, one, bought of you, has  done more mischief than _ can tell.' It is  absurd that it should be;so,'but it is a  fact. You have upset a lady's health and  unbalanced her mind."  "Oh, John!" whispered "Annie reproachfully, ,but I went on, shaking my fist at  the prophet:   ' ! ,   "���������  ' "A woman who believes "that your, nonsense is prophecy got hold of one of those  yellow envelopes that foretold her speedy  death,- and, as I said, the consequences'  wci-p deplorable 'and'are still. She'will'  not listen to reason. She may die of overwrought imagination, and if she" dies you  die also!    I've a mind to kill you now!"  The prophet retreated again as I shook  my fist at him, but he stared at me in  amazement as he did so.  "Look here, sir," said he, "we don't  put no prophecies,of that there character  into none of our envelups. Them sort  wouldn't be popular. Our'n is all favorable and encouraging. We make a rule  they shall be.    Besides,        * \  "Him that" prigs what isn't his'n,  When he's cotched shall be sent to prison,  which is in the gents' basket and is regarded as a joke.' There ain't no evil  prophecies in the collection. Oh, no, it's  some other prophet. There is two or  three of them along the Bowery. None  genuine but me."  "My friend," said I, "you are the person who had a booth at the state fair at  Hobbswich last autumn."  "Yes, I was there," said tho, prophet,  "but, as I said, our'n, especially for the  ladies, is all encouraging."  "Do you call this encouraging?" I asked, taking the envelope from my pocket-  book, where I had kept it since that fatal  day.    "Read it!"  Mr. Mesrom took the slip of paper from  me, gazed at it, and read it aloud:  " 'Lovely lady, you will die beforo the  ���������violets blow,' " he repeated.  "Now, cf that ain't a blamed shame,  I'm a donkey! See here���������that ain't no  fault of mine. I'll explain. Bnt thc lady  hasn't read the rest of the printing; it's  been folded up and tucked under somehow���������reading it altogether ain't so bad."  He had smoothed the paper now, and it  was evident that it had been folded so as  to conceal several words which followed  those I had 'read.  "'Lovely lady,' he began again, 'you  will die before the violets blow if you let  that cold run on and don't take good old  Dr. Dodds' Magic Cough Sirup this winter. For sale in the great hall.- One dollar per bottle.'  "Don't yon see?" Mr. Mesrom said, appealing to me, "that that ain't no prophecy, but just a regular ad.? I'll tell you.  the way of it: That old quack. Dr. Dodds,  had. his cough sirup at the 'fair,"and he  bribed our boy to stick some of thorn cir-1  cylars into our envelups. . I suppose some  was dfstribbytod before I caught him at  it and dismissed him with as good vl welting as boy ever.had. Why. that ain't rib.  prophecy, lady!_ Here, lady, let Polly  pick you out a true oneto make up for it.  No charge whatever."  He held the parrakeet toward the basket.  She jerked out. an envelope with her beak  and 'dropped it into Annie's hand.  "Open it," said I. "Open it and read  it Jt is the true one, you know." And on  the instant the dear girl obeyed and read  aloud:  "You'll be a bride in Juno."  "All's well that ends well," said the  prophet.    "Hope you are satisfied, sir?"  "Entirely," said I, offering him my  cigar case, and Annie and I went home  together in a state of utter beatitude, to  which we had been strangers since our j  first interview with the prophet, nnd  when Ave arrived at the door Annie rush-  eq into ner mother's arms, crying out:  "Oh, mamma, dear, I am not to die  when the violets blow���������I am to be married in June."

Parrish and his pretty  3'oung wife.  The story of that tragic midnight parting and its sequel, the happy noonday  meeting, is a strange story of chance���������  a story that cannot but revive hope in  any despairing breast, for it proves that  although there may be only one chance in  many millions of attaining the heart's  desire, it is worth while to wait and  watch for it.  Frank Parrish and his wife, swept  asunder in the tempest's roar and the  darkness of night, without ono clew to  follow; in finding each other when the  morning dawned and consciousness returned, gave up all thought of meeting  again in this woild. Theie was no apparent 'reason for supposing that either  had survived the horrors of, tftat fateful  nieht.  And yet there wr<<= a chance���������dim. uncertain, well nigh improbable, but nevertheless a chance���������that neither had gone  down into the tombless graveyard of tho  sea.  But so slight, so shadowy, seemed to  them that chance!.when weighed against  reason and considered along the line of  .ordinary occurrences that the heartbroken .husband and wife cast it aside as an  impossibility, th'e hungering thought of  .which merely mocked, their despair and  made their loneliness.the sadder.  They had not their learned how strange,  how elusive, how kind a thing sometimes  is chance.  , To chance they owe the reunion of their  -.parted lives. Chance, slenderest of all  threads though it be, has linked the broken chain that bound them. It has brought  about their second honeymoon, for Frank  Parrish and his wife are just now as  supremely happy a pair of wedded levers  as could bo found the world over.  When the tide rushed into Galveston  and houses were splintered in the mighty  grasp of the storm; when caught in the  teeth of the tempest and stunned by the  dashing waves, men, women and children  were engulfed and lost forever to the  sight or cast ashore, like human driftwood, the breath of life beaten out of  their bruised, broken bodies; when the  world itself seemed to come to an end in  chaos most-horrible, these two, shaken  from their slumber, without time for  prayer or farewell word, were-hurled with  their house into the angry flood. Clinging  to each other in the darkness, they were  flung into the very vortex of the inrush-  ing sea.   The last instant of consciousness  was fraught with anguish keener ���������than  any hurt to their bodies, for each fei't the  other slipping, slipping weakly away into  the black, desolate waste of waters. With  their cries choked iri their throats, with  even the wish to die .'together .denied  them, the man and the woman lost each  other, in the fury 'of the flood. ''  The catastrophe occurred in September  of last year, ten months ago.   ���������  The other day. by the one chance .that  these two sorrowing souls had never  dared to hope for, they found each,other  alive ,and well in the town of'Roswell.  X. M.     * - I    _ ,  rWith all its millions,of inhabitants this  old world is "a small place." ,after all,,  when two of the atoms that crawl over its  surface, suddenly thrust apart in -the  night, are as suddenly brought together  amid surroundings entirely different and"  in the full light of day.'  It was, like awakening from a shudder-  some nightmare to a sweet, sunny reality.  When the flood came, Mrs. Parrish,was  caught and pinioned by'the swirling waters in some wreckage that drifted back  within a block of the 'spot where their  house had stood. Here 'she was finally  rescued, badly bruised and " hurt. - but  without broken bones. r \  ' Her husband was carried the breadth  of tfie bay and 'far inland, where he was  found by a kind hearted stranger,'a' farmer, who at 'first thought .him quite deadl  But the nearly drowned man partially recovered consciousness, murmured the  name of his wife arid sank into a semicomatose state and wavened between life  and death for sixweeks thereafter. .. ,  'Meanwhile he was tenderly cared for'  in.the home of the farmer' upon whose  hospitality .,and' humanity ' the sea had  thrust him uninvited.   ���������-  Two,months passed before the sick man*  was^ able to "return to the 'scene of his  former happiness. -.Saddened and deso-'  late" he" wandered over the ground whose  landmark had been swept away, by the  anger of'the elements, ground once so fa-'  miliar, now so ttr.nr.gely altered.,, He'lin:  rsered by tlie ruius of his dwelling as by .'t  ���������>Uiv made crave. Everywhere he asked  ihe same , question ��������� and everywhere* received the same discouraginganswer.  No' one had been his wife since'the night,  of the Hood. , ','.',  . liis heart grew heavy with despair. ,He  bade goodby to the wreck of his fortunes  nnd the resting place of his broken hopes.  ,Then he turned his face toward a new'  (field, to hegin life over '.again, alone.  There could be no solace for his grief,  but in labor might be obtained some  measure of forgetfulrioss.  Frank .Parrish went to the home of bis  brother, Charles Parrish,' in the mountains of Lincoln county, N. M. .Slowly  came back to ,*him his -strength and  health, but the joy of life was no longer  his. To /work for work's sake'was not  the same task that it had been when  work .meant thd care of the little woman  who to him was the dearest and loveliest"  ���������in.'all'tho world-, the building of a home  together, the deVght of daily companionship and sympathy, the constant presence  *of,\that .influence which has power to  make devils or heroes of men���������the passionate influence of love. ���������  It was not satisfactory-at its best,  working merely ���������- for work's sake,, but  Frank ' Parrish did what any man with  the right sort of stuff in him would have  done���������he tried with all his might to make  something'worth while of himself iu his  new environment.  Tp inspire him ho had his memories,  and they were sweet.  All this while Mrs. Parrish was wearing the somber weeds of widowhood in  , Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Of her husband's  brother she knew nothing more than the-  fact of his existence somewhere in America.

She was \so melancholy that  her relatives finally planned a change of  scene for her. She acquiesced with indifference. In the days of her happy wifehood she had been a merry mate tor the  man who loved her/ Now she was pensive  and sad. her thoughts always with the  husband whose tragic fate she steadfastly mourned.  One of Mrs. Parrish's new; found  friends was a Miss Ellen Alexander,  who was about to leave Tennessee for  New Mexico lo teach in a private schi-ol  in Otero county.

In  New Mexico she would find different associations, and lhe change would perhaps  enliven her depressed spirits.
