The frontispiece is a reproduction in  colours of the  famous   picture,  "The Berry

the  Ontario   Society  of Artists.    Grant
Allen contributes a  very good Christmas

Scant Claus."   illustrating  the   fact   that
Santa Claus is a German Saint, and- that
Irish children have   difficulty   in   understanding  him. All the  children   in   the
wuild uo not know  ot our  Santa   Claus.
This stoiy by "Kit"   is one of her   bright
Iii'ah tales,   with   which < nothing   that   is
written in this countiy can compare. Eva
Hamilton Young   tells  something   about
Chiisimai caiols,   Christmas   boxes, and
other   customs peculiar   lo   the   Anglo-
Saxon.    \V. L. Edmonds ^ives the origin
of the dried   fruits  which   we use  at this
season in  our  Christmas  puddings  and
other'delicacies. Beside these seasonable
features,   there   are ��� articles   and  short

Victoria, Dec. 15th���Justice Drake today declined to  make  an  order on  the
application of J. D. Prentice to commit
Messrs. Ellis and Lugrin of the Colonist
for contempt, fer referring  to  the  Stod-
clart vs Prentice election  case.    He said
the rematks of the Colonist were  no  reflection on the judgement, but  in   refer
ring to the   case   and   prophesying  the
result of the trial they  were guilty  of a
technical contempt, but   not such  a  one
ab to warrant the proceedings taken.
As a little side show I   saw  a contest
between a  small' "dorg"   and' a  smaller
rat'm.a stable here.    There were' several
spectators  to see  the fun.    The  "dorg""
had evidently  been  notified, but  the rat
was   taken oby   surprise. , Taken,  did  I
say?    No,'indeed; it was not taken. 'The
keeper oj the "dorg" stirred  up the sorts
with a cane, and soon the  rat  appeared.-
AU cried out as  it ranj  '"There it goes !"
And it did g"b, oul and in among a forest
of legs which came pounding,down where
the rat had just Seen  but. was not.    The
"dorg"   was in close chase all  the  time,
but the rat was too\lively for it.   Finally
the rat made a dive for<the door^funning
over the  upper  sides of shoes  and  out
amid, a din of screams,  and  through the
fence with its ranine antagonist not near
enough to seize it.    Under  the  stable.it
went and that was the' last "seen   of Mr-
Rat.    The keeper declared there were so
many present that his "dorg" got-excited
and lost his head.    It was evident the rat
didn't loose its head, and even succeeded'
in pulling its tail  in after it   as it   disappeared.    I regret not having  my kodak

He took off his pananiu  hat to cool his head and drummed hi.-  fingers on the table. He consumed just  two minutes in thinking out and perfecting an ingenious plan.  "I .will try it," he said. "Rush!"  and in less time than it takes to write  ho had set every man in the office tG  work -, turning out copy of reversible  Spanish-Cuban victories. We were, lost  to sights arid' sounds. Not even the cry  of  "Los'insurrectbs!" that spread wild  TRUTH FOR ONCE.  ,'  -"Maldito Spaniards!" said my friend,  ��������� Don Juan, editor of a  Cuban  newspa-  ,  per called El Heraldo.  "The rale of the  'government over its  subjects  is unjust  - and. wicked;    There is absolutely   ho  '    liberty of the press."  I looked up.  "Andwhat of all.that?"  I asked.        "        '  '"  "And what of all that?" he repeated.  -"We shall be forced to cease publication," and he came over and whispered  to me, . "The censor has suppressed  every column of tomorrow's paper but  the advertisements.''  .That,was truly a serious -situation.  It was a difficulty that seemed insurmountable by even a man like Don Juan  with hisindomitablewill and resistless  . energy. He was sitting at the editorial  table. Before him was a budget of interesting material, news direct from the  -camp of the insurgents and many other.  - items���������all  streaked with  the censor's  red-pencil. During the past two months  ' I had ' been assisting him, as the staff  had heen considerably ,depleted by a  call for volunteers by the rebel army.  -��������� The weather "was oppressively hot.  The heat steamed through the huge  doors and windows which were thrown  wide open. We were all dressed in  white suits, innocent of course of collars and waistcoats. Half naked negro  beys waited for copy, but got none.  They were inky little imps���������ideal printer's devils.  . "Wo must fill the space," said the  editor, and in a tone of a commander  he gave his orders in his native tongue,  which, literally translated, meant,  "Make a page of the 'Spanish Virtues'  and stretch the shark to a column and  a half."-  ���������The latter was in reference to a  gigantic shark that had been making  frequent visits to the harbor of late,  and at times when the suppression of  our news made us short of material the  timely reappearance of the shark could  always be depended upon to fill censorial  gaps.  I did my best with it. .1 had it caught  and speared, and I described graphically  its death struggle. This same shark had-  been killed once or twice before by some  reporter���������but no matter. <.  It was dying again in good taste in  my hands, and the "devil" was waiting  at my elbow when the localista, or general reporter, came in. He was in  breathless haste. He had obtained some  important items of the war.  "The Spanish soldiers have made an  attack upon the rebels in their stronghold in San . The engagement lasted two hours and the loss to the enemy  was great. It was impossible to ascertain the number killed. The Cubans  . captured 20 prisoners, after which the  Spanish retreated. The matter has been  hushed by the military authorities."  I took a note of all this, taking care  to leave out all that would be likely to  be disapproved of by his worship, Senor  Perez, who held the office of censor.  ' " Never mind that, Nevin,'' Don Juan  said, to me; "we ought to have that just  as it is."  "But"��������� '   '������������������  "Anything else?" he said, addressing  the reporter.  "Yes. A filibustering expedition,  with arms and ammunition, landed last  night at a point about three leagues  from here. It was not discovered until  the supplies had all been brought on  shore and safely delivered to the agents  of the insurgents. All efforts to seize  the goods have proved ineffectual. The  boat has been abandoned and the crew  gannot be found. With this re-enforcement the Cubans will be fully equipped  to resist tho attack of the troops recently dispatched to the interior."  Don Juan had a nice little coffee colored nose for news. He wanted to serve  his readers with this palatable, redhot  stuff. He said modestly that it would  mako good reading. Besides it was  something that tickled his great, warm  Cuban heart. But unless he gave the  glory of  the victory  to  the  Spaniards  alarm among the inhabitants and  brought .out, troops of mounted military,  disturbed us.'  The" material was then given 'to the  printer, for. Senor Perez had taken-a  firm stand. 'He would read nothing that  had not been, set up in type, so my  friend and I eat down and smoked long  cigars while ' we waited for the proof  sheets. ' There were ty.ro' kinds that day  ���������the one telling of .Cuban victory, the  "other in similar words gave an account  of the defeat of the Cuban foe.  Don Juan spent much time carefully  eoloringone side of the former with a  vermilion preparation all his own, the  secret of which he divulged only to me.  It was a fine, adhesive substance made ���������  from the pollen"*bf a native flower, and'  when marked left an indelible impression. -This done, he fitted them neatly  and without a crease to proof sheets' No.  2,' and they were held fast together by  the substance between;  And how the  Spanish  guns  boomed  Shrough  the medium .of* printers' ink,1  and how the valiant soldiers  captured  20 prisoners, and completely routed the  rebels and seized every bit  of " the supplies brought to the country by the fili-  busterers,  made' up  a  whole  page of  - glowing material that would have passed  muster  at  the  desk of  the veriest old  "Spanish official.  But most of all'how'it  all  contradicted   itself  in  one and the  same   copy���������which  was   double���������and  went over, arms and ammunition, prisoners and all, to the Cubans.  Don Juan took it upon himself to  convey the decojT proof sheets to the  censor. He would intrust them to no  one for fear of discoyerj\ Tliero was no  outward .sign that would lead to detection, but the extra thickness. As we  parted ;he - reminded me.of .something  he had told me several times before.  "Be .careful,"   he  said,   much concerned, "remember"���������  "What?"  "That you are under suspicion of being a correspondent of an American  newspaper. You are watched and likely,  to be arrested at any moment. "  If I had only been one of your despised American correspondents who, next  to the Cubans, come in for a good taste  ��������� of Spanish misrule! It was a position  much coveted by me, but as it was I  had to be content with only the suspicion.       " '  I thanked Don Juan and warned him  in turn.  "If that scheme of yours is found  out," I said, "you'll be"���������  "Garroted tomorrow morning at the  castle for conspiracy against the government or some other excuse. I know it."  He had said exactly what I was going  to say. "But I am confident of getting  through all right unless something unexpected happens. For the sake of making a reputation for my paper for giving  truthful reports and be d?>ne with the  contemptible lies wo have been printing  all along, I will risk it."  I wished him well, but I had my misgivings. As a man with ordinary  courage, I would not have carried the  thoughts of such things in my mind  that he carried in his hand���������that is,  not in Cuba, where there was a daily  execution of some one, and damp dungeons yawned for occupants, and I was  already under the watchful eye of the  authorities!  Senor Perez sat at his desk carefully  reading and revising the proof sheets of  the various newspapers and periodicals  published in the town. It was his busiest time and an hour elapsed before he  reached tho roll marked "El Heraldo."  He to.ok it up, examined it, skimmed  through the contents and then began to  read critically. His attention became  fixed upon certain reports and ho was  seen to read them over more than once  to make sure that his eyes did not deceive him.  '' Where did you get your facts?" he  asked.  "From a Spanish eyewitness," returns Don Juan, "but they cannot be  verified." .-��������� >  "They can be verified!" Perez answered, and with a vengeance he  brought his pencil and ran it ; through  an item just below, which, it had been  previously calculated, would be disapproved by him. Senor Perez did not  know that at that moment he marked  double.  With.the roll once more in his possession Don Juan- departed. I think it  quite impossible to describe the feelings  of a Cuban who has tricked a Spaniard.  The town "was in a state of 'wild excitement.  Another alarm that the insurgents  were coming had been raised, and soldiers swarmed through the streets and  sentinels stood at the corners. Every  Cuban was closely watched, and several  arrests were made. Don Juan felt no  little anxiety. He put the papers in his  hat and was walking in more haste  than was considered proper by the  guards, and he was suddenly -stopped  by the challenge:  "Who goes there?"  "Spain," was the quick response.  ���������������What kind of people?;'  "Inoffensive."  And back to the office he came with  the precious proof sheets, where they  wero separated, and lo! there they were,  two copies marked exactly alike. - The  original with the red backs were very  wisely destroyed. The contents of the  other came out in El Heraldo the next  day. ��������� Cuban victory never looked more  glorious in print than when embellished with the tracings of the censor's  pencil���������or its counterfeit. >  That little affair stirred up the whole  judicial system. El Heraldo' was  promptly laid before the authorities and  read. Surprise traveled downward from''  the governor, through the clerks to the  next official, and, so on down to the  humble Cuban who lounged in the tropical sun and wondered how Don Juan  ever dared. (  I remained long enough in the office  to read the paper, and then went out-to  the landing of the filibuster expedition  as the Cuban reporters had been debarred  from obtaining any news. My trip took  me into thickets in which I lost my  way several times, and it was late be-  * ' i * n  . fore I returned. I was in possession of  news that I felt sure would make another startling sensation" when it appeared in print.  But  I 'never reached  the office that  day nor since.' The inevitable happened.  I was walking   along   the   Plaza   de  - Armas.  "Senor Don Charles Nevil," said the  officer, "I arrest you."  Of course I asked for what, ��������� and he  told' me that - the government had disr  covered that'I was an Arrierican correspondent (I denied the charge emphatically) and ' that I was the author , of  "scandalous and untruthful dispatches  published', in the New ,York '������������������."  Therefore my arrest.  I said that he was mistaken and as  cooly as possible went with him. I never  shall forget those first moments in jail.  the town had a garrison, of more sol:  diers than it could conveniently accom;  modate, and a portion of the troops had  been quartered in the jail, to either the  disgust or delight or both of. tho prisoners, who were crowded in groups of two  and three into the small cells.  The door had been locked and I was  looking longingly through the iron  wickerwpfk-after the 'retreating officer  when-I heard a slight cough and, turn-0  ing,11 found myself in the august presence of no less a distinguished personage  than Senor Perez himself. We were fellow prisoners.  He drew away from me' disdainfully  while I made a respectful bow, standing  with my heels together and walking  backward, as I had seen - the Spanish  , dignitaries do at "court" at the palace.  Next in line tb the distinction of being  an American correspondent was occu-  , pying the same cell with Senor Perez.  He seemed to think it a reflection upon  his dignity to be in my company.  "Americano!';' he said contemptuously.  I bowed again���������this tide for my nationality. "I hope that we shall not be  together long," Tsaid; "that is, I hope  I shall be soon released."  "You?" he said. "You will get your  punishment for your complicity with  Don Juan in defying the government  and publishing the lies about the soldiers of Spain in El Heraldo."  "I, senor? I thought I was to be'punished for being an American correspondent. I,think it.isunfair to arrest a man  on one charge and punish  him" for another. "  "Do not worry," he answered, with  a malicious smile, "you shall have all  the law allows for both in due time."  That was a wicked witticism. Subsequently I learned he had been confined  in jail pending an investigation, as he  was under suspicion of having approved  of the "lies" that had appeared in the  paper. I was much concerned about Don  Juan.  "And what of the editor?" I asked  cautiously.  "The Spanish government deals very  promptly," was the reply.  * "Y bien?"  "And well, then? He is probably on  his way to the castle now!"  "You mean  that he is going to his  death?" I gasped.  "Yes, certainly."  I could not restrain myself. Excited  beyond all reason, I made a wild rush  for the door in an attempt to break  from the cell and make an effort at  least to save the life of my friend, all  of which, had I succeeded, would have  been utter folly on my part.  At that moment several imperious  officials appeared bearing certain proof  sheets. They were shown to Senor  Perez, and he examined them. He had  held them in his hands before, but he  was not aware of it. Up to that time  he had remained steadfast in the assertion that the editor had ignored his suppression of the reports. He was certain  he had suppressed them. He could not  see how in his loyalty to his sovereign  he could have done otherwise. Hero  was the evidence that he had not; hero  were his own marks of approval; here  were exactly the same words he had  read, only of course as they read now  the subject matter was reversed. Senor  Perez stood amazed.  "Are these your marks?" he was  asked.  Senor Perez hesitated. ; To save himself there was only one answer that he  could give.  "No," he replied. "The whole thing  is a forgery."  It was a vital moment. The astonished officials stared at him and then at  me and from me back to him again. I  returned their gaze with an air of indifference, but I was not .sure' of. my  ' countenance. I was afraid some little  look would reveal" the fact that I~knew  more than I cared 'to tell about the  affair. But fortunately the uncertainty  that I felt concerning my own fate left  a blank expression in my face. After'  many more questions the officials took  their departure quite satisfied with  their investigation and fully determined  to bring to.justice the Cubans who had  . dared to forge.the censor's pencilings.'  I was a passenger on board the'first  mail steamer that left port after my arrest, and my next item of news for the  Cuban paper were sent from America.; r  But Don Juan had long since joined  Ihe rebels'.  , That is the story how El Heraldo  published the truth for once and then  died a glorious death.���������Josephine Voss  in Detroit News-Tribune.

The servants of Oakley  fed upoiiit.    They held  secret   conferences   in the   kitchen,'and  grew loud and argumentative whon thoy  knew   John   Arthur was- safely   out  of  .hearing.

She entertained   Peter, tbe  groom,  ' i coachman and general factotum, with  vdivers suggestions and suppositions, each  more soul-barroWing than the last,  making, of, poor   Madeline a lay figure  - upon which she fitted all tbe catastroph-  ies that had ever befallen hor yellow-  covered "herolnesses."  Tho villagers talked.    It -was all   they  could   do,   and their tongues were  very  ._ busy for a while-, until, .in fact, -a fresher  sensation   arrived.   ' Nurso    Hagar  was  viewed and interviewed ; but beyond sincere expression of griof at her disappearance, and theunvarying  statement that  she had not even the si Ighost  conjecture  as   to   the fate of the lost girl,    nothing  could be gained .from her.  '    Hagar was somewhat given   to   rather  bluntly spo en opinions of folk who hap-  ,_  pened   to run counter \to < her notions in  regard to prying, or, in fact, her notions  ' on any subject.  In tho present emergency  "she became .a   veritable social hedgehog,  and  was -soon left to   solitude   and  her  own devices.'  * __'-  Whatever   wore   Hagar's   opinions  on  .the   subject,   she   kept1  them discreotly  ' locked within her own breast. She had  received, at their last interview, a revelation of the depth and force of character  which lay dormant in the nature of  Madeline; and sho believed, even when  she "grieved most, that the girl would re-  ' turn, and that whon she came she would  -"make her advent felt.  John Arthur went to the city  "to put  the   matter   in the hands   of  tho   detectives, '' he said.    But as ho most fervently hoped and wished that he had soon the  last of his "stumbling-block,"   and heli-"  lieveW that of hor own freo will she would  not return, it is  hardly   to   be   supposed"  that the Secret Service was severely taxed.  Be   this   as it may, tho  summer  days  passed and he heard nothing of Madeline.  * * * * -  Meantime, the neat little' hotel that rejoiced in the name of tho Bellair House,  displayed on a fresh page of its register  the signature of Lucian Davlin once  more, and underneath it that of Mrs. C  Torrance.  Mrs. C. Torrance was a blond young  widow, dressed in weeds of most elegant  quality and latest style, with just the  faintest hint of an approaching season of  half-mourning.  Mrs. Torrance had now been an inmate  of Bellair House some days, and she  certainly had no reason to complain that  her present outlook was not all that  could bo desired. Already she had met  the object of her little masquerade, and  it was charming to see the alacrity with  which John Arthur placod"himself in  tho snaro set for him by, these plotters,and  how gracefully he submitted, as the cords  tightened around him.    ;  Over  and  over again Davlin    thanked  his lucky star for   having so   ordered'his  goings that, on his previous visit, he had  never beon brought into   immediate contact   with   John Arthur.    Over and ever  again   ho congratulated himself  that his  meetings with Madeline  had  been   kept  their own secret, for he knew nothing of  tho   watchful, jealous eyes of old Hagar.  1 On a fine summer morning,  or, rather,  "forenoon,"   for   Mrs.    Torrance   was   a  luxurious widow,and her "brother," Mr.  Davlin,   not   at   all. enamored   of   early  rising-���������ion a fine forenoon, then, the pair  sat in the little hotel   parlor,   partaking  of breakfast.     They  relished   it,  too,   if  one   might   judge   from   the    occasional  pretty   little   ejaculations, expressive   of  enjoyment   and   appreciation,    that   fell  from, the lips of. the widow.  - "More cream, monsieur? Oh, but this  fruit is dolicious! And I believe there  is a grand difference in the qualities of  city and country cream."  "The   difference   in   the   favor   of the  up a pretty, berry-stained hand, she said,  with mock solemnity, "That is the last,  my greatly shocked brother. But didn't  you inform Mr. Arthur that we should  accept of his kind offer to survey the  woods'and grounds of Oakley in his com  pany, and isn't this the day, and almost  tho hour?"  "So it is; I had forgotten. "  It was. not long before the pair were  equipped, and sauntering slowly in the  direction of the Oaliley estate.  Their morning's enterprise , was more  than rewarded, and the cause of the  widow was in a fair way to victory  when, after having politely refused to  lunch with'Mr. Arthur on that dav, and  gracefully promised to dine at Oakley  on the next day but ono, they bade adieu  to that flattered and fascinated gentleman, and left him at the entrance of his  grounds.  Then they 'sauntered slowly back,  keeping to'the wooded path.) Arriving  at tho fallen tree, the scene of so many  interviews between Madeline and Lucian,  Cora seated herself on the mossy trunk  and announced her determination to rost.  Accordingly her escort throw himself  upon the soft grass, and betook himself  to his inevitable cigar, while he closed  his eyes and allowed the vision of Madeline to occupy the place now usurped by  Cora. Very absorbing the.vision must  have been, for he gave an almost nervous  start as Cora's voice broke the  stillness:  "Lucian, did you ever seo this runaway daughter of Mr. Arthur's?"  Lucian started- unmistakably now.  Then he employed himself In pulling up  tufts of the soft grass, protending not to  have heard.     t  "Lucian!" impatiently.   '  '.'Eh, Co., what is it?" affecting a  yawn.   +  "I ask did you ever see this Madeline  Payne, who ran away recently?"  "I? Oh, no. Old fellow always kept  her shut up too close, I' fancy. They say  she was pretty, and you are the i first  pretty woman I have seen in these parts,  Co."  "Well, then, I'm sorry you didn't."  quotn Cora, "for from motives of delicacy  I really don't ca������ to inquire of others,  and I have just curiosity enough to wish  to know how she looked. " ,.  , "Sorry I can't enlighten you, Co. Got  it nil out of the old fellow after tbe joyful event."   P '  "Umph! Well, that business prospers,  raon brave. We shall win, I think, as  usual."  "Yes; and Dever easier, Co."  "Well, I don't anticipate much trouble  in landing our fish. But come along,  Lucian, this romantic dell might make  you forget luncheon; it can't have that  e flfect on me.''  Cora gathered her draperies about her,  and prepared to quit the little grove, her  companion following half reluctantly.  in  country living, eh? I say, Co., don't you  think your appetite is rather better than  is expected, or in order, for a widow in  the second stage of her grief?"  Things were moving just now as Mr.  Davlin approved, and he felt inclined to  be jocular.  Cora laughed merrily.    Then   holding  ,    CHAPTER   IX.-G01SE.     "  Hours that seemed .days; days that  seemed years; weeks that seemed cen-  ;turies; yet they all passed, and Madeline  Payne scarce knew, when they were actually gone, that .they wero not all- a  dream. ' , r   r  Life, after that first yielding of heart  and brain, had beon a delirium; then a  conscious torture of mind and body; next  a burdon almost 'too great to' bear; and  then a dreamy - lethargy. " Heaven bo  praised for such moods; they are saviours  of life and reason in crises such as this  through which tho stricken girl was passing.  Madness had wro'ught upon her, and  beT ravings had revealed some otherwise  dark places and blanks in her history to  her guardian and nurses. Pain had tortured her.-. Death wrestled with her, and  then, bocause he could inspire her with  no fear of him, because she mocked at  his terrors and wooed him, fled away.  In his place came Lifo^ to whom she  gavo no welcoming smile. But life  stayed, for Lifo is as regardless of our  wishes as is Death.  Forms had hovered about her; kindly  voices, sweet voicas, had murmured at  her bedside. At times, an angel had held  the cooling draught to her thirsty lips.  At last these dream, creatures resolved  themselves into realities:  Doctor "Vaughan, who had ministered  to hor with tho solicitudo of a brother,  the gentleness of^a woman, and the goodness of an angel.  Olive Girard, who, leaving all other  cares, was ever at her bedside, and who.  came to that place at a sacrifice of feeling, after a wrestling with pride, bringing a bitterness of memory', and a pa-  tiant courage of heart, that the girl could  not-thon realize.

Out of danger! ;Vy'hat a misapplication  of words.I  From the scene of conflict, at tho last  flutter of Death's gioomy mantle, comes  the man of medicine; ' waich in'hand,  boots a tip-fcoe, face grave but triumphant. His voice bids a subdued farewell to  the sombernoss proper to a probable  death-bed, coming up just a note higher  in the scale of solemnities, as it announces to the eager, trembling, waiting  ones,  "The danger is past!"  "Death, the,calm, the restful, the never  weary; Death, the friend of   long suffering, and   world-weariness   and' despair;  Death,    the   rescuer, the sometime   comforter���������has gone away with empty   arms  and reluctant tread,   and���������Life,, flushed,  triumphant,    seizes   his rescued   subject  and flings her out into the sea of human  lives, perchance to alight upon some tiny  green   islet,   or,    likelier yet,    to   buffet  about among black waters, or encounter  winds and storms, upheld only by a half-  wreecked raft or floated by a scarce-supporting spar.  And she is out of danger!  Hedged around about by sorrow, assailed   by temptation, overshadowed  by sin.  And, "the danger is over!"  jrfuffeted by the waves of adversity;  longing for things out of reach; running'  after ignis fatui wi*h eager, out-stretched  hands, and careless, hurrying feet,  among pitfalls and snares. And, out of  danger!  Open  your eyes, Madeline Payne;   lift  up your voice in thanksgiving; you have  come back to the world. Back where the  sun shines and the dew: falls; where the  flowers are shedding their perfume and  song birds are making glad music; where  men make merry' and women smile;  where gold shapes itself into palaces and  fame wreathes crowns 'for fair and noble  brows; where beauty crowns valor and  valor kisses the lips' of beauty. And  where the rivers sparkle in the sunlight,  and. sometime������!, yield up from their embrace cold, dripping, ������������������ dead things, that  yet bear the sfcuublanca'of your kind���������all  that is left of beings that were once like  you!  Out of danger! ,   '  Where want, aud poverty, and���������God  help us!���������vica, hide their heads in dim  alleys and under smoky garret roofs.  Where beaten mothers and starving  children dare hardly aspire to the pure  air and sunlignt, the whole world for  them being enshrined iu a crust of bread.  Where thieves mount upwards on ladders  beaten from pilfered gold, and command  cities and 'sway nations. Where wantonness laughs and thrives in gilded cages,  and starves and dies in moldy ' cellars.  Out of danger!  Madeline, the place that was almost  yours,' in the land of the unknowable, is  given to another. The waters of death  have cast you back upon the ' shores of  the living. Youare'"oufc of danger!"  What was to become of Madeline, now  that they had brought her back to life?  This was a question which occurred to  the two who so kindly interested themselves in the fate of the 'unknown and  headstrong girl. v  While they planned a little, as was  only natural, yet they knew from what  they had seen of their charge that, decide for her how thoy would, only so far  as chat decision, corresponded with her  own inclinations would she abide by it.  So they left Madeline's future for Madeline to decide, and found occupation for  their kindliness in ministering to her  needs of the present        - ���������. ,  Once during her illness, and Just as  the light of reason had returned to the  lovely hazel eyes, Lucian Davlin came.  But he found the door of the sick chamber closely shut and closely guarded. The  slightest shook to her nerves would be  fatal now���������they told him.. And, he,'  having done the:" proper thing, as he  termed it, and not being in any way  fond of the sight of pain and pallor,  yielded with a graceful simulation of reluctance. Having been assured * that,  with careful nursing, there was nothing  to fear, he deposited a cheque on "his  bnnkers in the hands of her attendants,  and went away .contentedly, smiling  under his mustache at the novelty of  being turned away from his own door.  He went back to'* Bellair, to Cora, and  to the web they^were weaving, little  dreaming whose hands would take up  the thread and continue and complete  what they bad thus begun.  And now the day has come for"Madeline to leave the shelter that she hates.  Pale and weak,-.she,sits in the great easy  chair that had served as < a barrier between - herself"aridjier enemy, and converses with Olive .Girard while they  await the arrival of Clarence Vaughan,  who is to take them from the place so  distasteful to all three.  It had been settled that. _ for the  present,r Madeline will be thei^ "guest' of  Olive. What will como after health and  strength are fully restored, they havo  not discussed much. Olive, Girard and  Doctor Vaughan had, agreed that all  thoughts of tho future must bring a grief  and care with them, and the mind of the  invalid was in no condition for painful  thought and study. So" Olive has beon  careful to avoid all topics that might  bring her troubles too vividly to mind.  But, partly to divert Madeline's mind  from her own woes, partly to enable the  ^unfortunate girl to feel less a stranger  among them, she has talked to her of  Doctor Vaughan, ������������������f her sister, and at  last of herself.  And Madeline has listened to her description of merry, - lovely Claire Keith,  and'wondered what she could have in  common with this buoyant," care-free  girl, who was evidently her sister's idol.  Yet she found hereelf thinking often of  Olive's beautiful sister. Once, in the  absence of Olive, she had said to Doctor  Vaughan:  "Mrs. Girard has told me of her sister;  is sho very lovely? And do you know  her well?"  "She is very fair, and swoet, and good.  You will love her when you know her,  and I think you will be friends."  Sho had not needed this; The tell-tale  eye was sufficient to reveal the fact that  it was not, as she had at first supposed,  Olive Girard, but the younger sister  whom Clarence Vaughan loved.  "I might have known, she murmured  to herself. Olive GLrard has the face of  one whose love: dream has passed away  and lost itself in sorrow; and he looks,  full of strength and hope, straight into  the future."  As they sat together waiting, there was  still that same contrast, which you felt,  rather ?than saw, between these two.  Thoy might have posed as tho models of  Resignation and Unrest.  The look of patient waiting was five  years old upon tho face of Olive Girard.  Five years ago she had been.so happy���������a  bride, beautiful and beloved. Beautiful  she was still���������with the beauty of shadow;  beloved too, but how sadly! Philip Girard had been convicted of a great crime,  and for five long years had worn a felon's  garb, and borne the anguish of one set  apart from all the world.  The hand that had darkened the life of  Olive Girard, and the hand that had  turned the young days of the girl Madeline into a burden, was one and the same.  Afterwards Madeline listened to the  pathetic history of Olive's sorrow.    -  Sitting in that great lounging chair,  Madeline looked very fair, very childlike.  Sadly sweet wore hor large, deep eyes,  and her hair, shorn while the fever  raged, clustered in soft, tiny rings about  her slender, snowy neck and blue-veined  temples. She had not bsien permitted to  talk much during her convalescence, and  Olive had as yet gleaned only a general  outline of her story.  "Mrs. Girard," said, the girl, resting  her pale cheek in the palm of a thin,  tiny hand, "you once said   something to  me about���������about some one who had been  wronged by���������" Something sadder than  tears choked her utterance.  As Olive turned her grave, clear eyes  away from the window, and fixed them  in expectation upon her, Madeline's own  eyes fell. She sat before her benefactress  with downcast lids, "and the hateful  name unutterecL ���������  "I know," said Olive, after a ' brief  silenca; "I referred to a girl now lying  in the hospital. ' She is very young, and  has been cruelly wronged by him. She  is poor, as you may judge, and 'earned  her living in tho ballet at , the theater.  She -was thrown from a carriage which  had been furnished he? by him, to cirry  her home from , soma rendezvous���������of  courso the driver took care of himself and  his horses. The poor girl was picker  up and carried to ihe hospital. She was  without friends and almost penniless.  She sent .to'him���������for him; he returned  no answer. She begged'for help, for  enough to enable her to obtain what was  needed in her illness. Message after  message was sent, and finally a reply  came, brought by a 'messenger who had  been bidden to insist upon receiving an  answor. The servant said that his master  had directed him to say to any messenger  who called, that he was out of town."  "Tho wretch !   He deservos death !"       '  Madeline's eyes blazod, and she lifted  her head with some of her olden  energy.  ''Softly, my dear: 'Thou shalt do no  murder.' " -  "It Is not murder to kill a human  tiger!"  Olive made no answer.'  "Is she still very ill, this girl?" questioned Madeline.'      ,  "She can not"recover. "  "Shall I sec her?" ��������� :  "If you wish to; do you?"  ,  "Yes."

"I have not so many friends that  I can afford ,to lose one."      <!  "Thank you, dear; then_wo will lei  the subject drop until we are stronger.  And here ,is the carriage," and Doctor  Vaughan.',' , -,  '" Out into the sunny .summer morning  wont Madeline, and soon she was established in a lovely little" room which,  Olive said, was hers so long as she could  be persuaded to occupy it. Here the girl  rested and, ministered, unto by. gentle  h'anas, she felt life coming back.  And Lucian?  Late in the afternoon of the day that  saw Madeline depart from his e egant.  rooms,- Mr. Davlin arrived, and found no  ono to deny him admittance. All tho  doors stood ajar, and Henry was flitting  about with an air of putting things to  rights. The bird had flown.  ���������, He gained from Henry tho following:  "I don't know, sir, "where she went. A  gentleman came with a carriage, and the  young lady and the nurse went away  with him."  Lucian was not aware what manner of  nurse Madeline had had in her illness.  And Henry, having purposoly misled  him, enjoyed his discomfiture.  ''She told ine to give you this, sir,"  said he, handing his master a little package.  Tearing off the wrapper,   Lucian   held,  in his hand   the little pistol that had inflicted   UDon   him   the   wounded     arm.  From'its'mouth he drew a scrap of paper,  and this is what it said:  . When next we meet, I shall have other  weapons!  . Jk. JdCerry Can.

I see every little while a certain big  sign on-the, street which reads thus, "Za-  patos and Sombreros."  This is the sign of a Cuban gentleman  who deals in hats and shoes.    It is easy to  understand why  shoes  are   zapatos and  hats are  sombreros in 'Tampa,.but, why  ��������� should they be. connected with the English conjunction?  This was a mystery until it dawned upon me that the thing had  been done by an American sign painter, to  whom the copy, "Zapatos & Sombreros,"  with the character   "&,"  had been,furnished.    He had "spelled out," with the  unexpected polyglot result. B ut the Chinamen whose signs run  thus, "Hop Sing,  Tren de Lavado," are more consistent in  their Spanish.    So are the milk carts in  Ybor  City, which  bear  only the  words,  "Leche Fresca."   And yet, strange to say,  all   the  beer   saloons   in town   sell  just  "beer."  One wonders whether there is no Cuban  equivalent for this term. There is undoubtedly a considerable Cuban consumption of the article.���������Tampa Cor. Boston  Transcript.  Reasgured.
