"I should bay that she won't last more  'ili.-m -0 minutes.''  And as the man spoke ho cast a calculating glance"at' the ship's dock, which'  lay tilted on out; side in a curiously slanting position. The boat had struck upon  one of "the dangerous groups of sunken  rocks in the English channel, and there  seemed no likelihood that the 'vessel,  stately and strong as it had been so short  a time before, could be saved from destruction.  Roger Winford turned away from  the  'man   whom   he'had   questioned   with   a  sharp gesture which he would  not have  '    liked any one else to see. so "expressive  was it of gioat despair,    lie was" a man  in* middle   life,   with  dark   hair  slightly  grizzled and  a  grave,  impassive counte-  -   hnance,, which  did   not  often   betray   his  emotions. ' ,*  ' ",Was it for this," he said to himself as  Jio moved away from the sailor, "that I  ,   have toiled for so many years and heaped  up wealth and denied myself almost every.enjoyment that I might,perish miser-  .     Jib'ly within sight of homo?   Is it for this  ���������     (hat I have kept silent all this time and  refrained   from   snatching   at   the   good  things'that dangled within my reach?    I  ftave wasted my days: 1 have been a fool;  1  have thrown the best  part of iny'Jife  away, and the last 20 minutes of one's  life is not a time in which anything can  lie put light." '  ,  As  ho  said   the  words  to   himself he  came upon a group of'women and children,  who had "been  placed in  the most  advantageous position as regarded safety,  ��������� ami his eye sought  instantly for the one  face, the'one figure, in which he felr a peculiar interest. , A giil of some 10 years  ,    lifted a pale brave countenance to his for  a moment and read in his eyes the cou-  , nrmation of the fears which had already  occurred to her.      ' ������  "    < ''Is there no hope  then?"  she said  to  1 him in an undertone.  "No," said tho man. "there i* no hope."  1 ���������   "You don't think that we shall be seen  fro'm a distance and,that the lifeboat will  he sent out to our help?"  "No.  I  don't,"  said   Winford.   "and  it  could scarcely get here in time." - .  "flow  much   longerV"  she  asked.'and  lieH'elt  her  hand" cling  to   him   a   little  tighter.  "I think���������about 20 minutes. That is  what the quartermaster told me. He  thinks the boat will break up in about  that time."     , r  "If only,"  said  the girl.  "1   could  get  - over to the other side of  the  deck  aiid  comfort poor Mrs. Gunliffe a little!"  "Yon cannot," said the man immovably. "You must stay where you are.  You cannot walk-when the deck is-at  this angle, and a wave may break over it  at any moment and carry you away."  He had previously done his utmost for  Tier safety, for he had lashed her to one  of the bulwarks, which was wedged in a  cleft of the rock, and  (here was even a  possibility  that  she  might  be left  there  when  the  ship   went  to   pieces   and.   he-  thought, ultimately rescued.  "Where's Vivian?" he said abruptly.  "He  was here just now." said   Molly,  "but went to the other side���������to &ee if he  could find a lifeboat, I believe."  "For.you?"  "No," said Molly, with some little hesitation, "for himself."  "As I should have imagined," s'liol  Roger in a harder voice.  "He is young," said Molly softly, "and  his life is dear to him."  .."Is it not dear to you, too?" said Winford.  "I suppose it is to most of us," she answered.  "I never thought so. for my own part."  said her companion, "but in these last  few moments I have discovered a certain  value in life which I never suspected. I  could wish almost to live it over again.  In fact, if one could only profit by one's  own mistakes, I would do so very gladly."  "Oh. yes," said Molly, with a sigh:  "but one can never go back."  She was always a pretty girl, bin as  Winford looked at her he thought the  gravity'of her expression, the wisrfulnesa.  ot her blue eyes, made her positively  beautiful. She was a little woman, whom  people always wanted to caress, for  there was something peculiarly soft and  clinging about her. But ar this moment  a deeper intelligence, a stronger spiritual  sense, had come to her. and rher face was  transfigured into beauty beyond itself.  There was no fear in it. no sadness, but  a bravo, calm acceptance of tbe fact that  she was face to face with another world.  Winford almost felt as though they had  already passed beyond the regions of this  earth and might speak, not only face to  face, but soul to soul.  There was a perceptible change in his  voice when he addressed her. It was low  and steady, but seemed'charged with purpose, as thougn he had made' up h'is mind  *o say or do something which had not occurred to him beforo. Even in the first  trivial question'that 'u> nut to !>'��������������������������� x'   "  recognized the difference of intention and  glanced at him inquiringly.  "Are you cold?" he said. ���������  "No. scarcely at all. We are so sheltered here. It seems hardly possible that  in a few minutes we shall be here no longer.-does it?"  "We ought to make-the best of our  time." said Winford.  "Shall we say a prayer, then?" said  Molly quite simply, knowing perhaps  that this was the best tiling they could  do. i  "No! no: wait a minute. There's something that comes before prayer, isn'l  there?    C nnfessinn ?*' '  She looked at'bim dumbly: she did not  understand.  "Confession" of a wrongdoing," ������aid  'Winford jn a slightly altered too������ ��������� "I  have always had a notion tliat.it was little use appealing for forgiveness until  one/ had confessed the wrong that onp  had done. Do you think so? We have  known each oth������_-r for a good many years,  Molly."  "Yes. indeed," she said, putting out one  hand toward him/and drawing as close  as1 she could. /'I have'depended on yon  and trusted'you nil my life, ever since I  was quite a little girl, when you told im:  that you were 'my guardian and would  take care of me. And you have taken  care of me, haven't you���������very good care,  I should say?" ' ������������������     '  , "Until now," said Winford gloomily.  "But now I am' absolutely useless. I  don't fool more useless against the winds  and waves than I have felt the whole of  the past fortnight, Molly, in knowing  that you were giving me up for the sake  of a newcomer, who wants to,take yon  out of my ,care,and"make you a part of  his life. It is George Vivian "whom you  choose for your protector, is it not?" '  "He is, not much of a protector now,'*  'said Molly.       P . '  "What can yon expect?" Winford asked her bitterly. "He is young and handsome. He has all his life'before him, and  lie is not likely to want to throw.it away.  He will ma Ice  life: but  yours-r^as I would do."  Molly was silent, but,her hand closed  tighter over Winford's arm.  "I am old, I know," continued Winford,  "and ugly and uninteresting, and I can  not expect you to care for, me so much  as for a younger man. But I do want to  say a word about Vivian, Molly, because  it is possible, you know���������just possible���������  that you may 'be saved from the wreck,  and that I  may  not. tand  then you  will  ' Then she turned to him with a cry of  joy and hid her face upon his breast,  "linger. Roger." she said. "I shall die  happy now, for no, one in all the world  could be to me what you have been, and  in life or death we belong to each other,  you and I."  The quartermaster passed them live  minutes afterward, holding on to ropes  and climbing over shattered bulwarks  with the agility of a cat, but with a curious expression of satisfaction' upon his  weather beaten face. . *  , "There   you   are.   sir,   and   the  young  WHIM-WHAMS.

No, she could  ' ' not stand, her side pained her iruineiise-  ly, and'her left foot was either-broken  or badly sprained. ' <  , "Let us think for a luam.-nt and decide  what is best to be done," said Valley-  field; then, after a short paiv=e, he con-'  tinued: "Would it si-il you if 1 carried-  you to my own cabin, , some U-\v hundred yards, from here. ' There T could  saddle my own pony and take yoi there-  ��������� on to your friends?'',  They thought of other't hitigs to do  but after many other suggestions- ,by  both, this at length appeared to theon  n& being the best more to make. So,  lif'tingher in-his strong anus once mors;,  <his time more tenderly than when he  had assisted her over the stream, he  soon, traversed the intervening distance,-  jind anon, placed* her on a sofa in his  own t'best room.", Then lie went and  saddled his own horse, with the iuteh-  ' tion of conveying, her on it.s ba.-k   over;  to her friends.'   Upon  reluming to hen  ���������ohowever, he found that she had1 fainted.y  t'Csins water as a restorative, he.���������after  little- time,   brought   her   back    to   her  senses.

Go- d  tiling that your bronco strayed up hore  and woke me up, or I .might nor have  hoard 'your call."  Drawing up a chair, he continued  ' chatting with her as the night passed,  each moment finding her much easier,  and in less pain. While she talked to  him she had time to cast her e;������o-. about  the room. Even in the dim 1 gilt she  ���������could see in the apartment e virion cos of  refinement, and in siine sense it put  her in mind of her father's "teaching  room" in New' York City, only ir. had  not the post mortem traditions to her  that always seemed lo clinj: to her  father's  "'musical   room."  Valley field's "best room" whs scrupul-  . ously clean, a carpet was on the floor,  ���������and there were .some water color paintings on the wall, while on an easel in a  corner there rested an unfinished oM  painting, -with pigments and brushes  near by. She felt instinctively corttin  that the man who occupied this dom cile  was a gentleman by birth and cultivation, though how ho came to be a miner  was to her yet a mystery.  Towards daylight she fell in'o a  peaceful slumber, and awoke much roll eshed after the sun had  risen.  The doctor found besides a ep-ained  foot, a splintered rib. that had slightly  injured the heart, aud he absolutely for-  T'ade his patient to bo movnl for at  least a weed-. Then ISIi/.ab^th wrote a  letter to Elsie explaining her enforced  absence, and the doctor delivered it on  his way. balk "to town," as he Iaughing-  i t" uii>d it. The Godfreys has bo-m  --���������nrchnir for Elizabeth all night, and  lb." letter to Elsie was read with much  r ie", th<^ d^ct-n- ns ur'ng them that she  -as perfectly comfortable and in no  <\trt"er. Elsie explained iri a letter, i\t  i'-ifo sent back to Elizabeth, that as the  7,''1:rl'\ .B:ll and Sure Footed Colt wei-e  jio-.-t;]o elauns, it would be quite impos-.  r"'iV for her. to go to her cousin, but  f:'ev wo"Jd receive the doctor's report  ca'ly, and s'Mid for her just as soon as  s-'h" w.t- able to be moved.  For the next few days ..Elizabeth re-  ������..-vt;r:en- maooro, seiuum veutaVing ��������� i.e-  youd a score of "yards from the cabin.  She did not feel ' ill, but felt in that  oreamy. ���������state..of weakness, which comes  to us when we are throwing off a sev re  shock. During this time Valleyfield  <coked for her and nursed her as fa--  as she would allow, but Elizabeth was a  proud patient and would consent to noth-  ine' hut'.the most necessary( assistance.  Poring this enforced idle time Elizabeth  inrenflv .studied ber manager, and the  more she observed him the more.at ea^e  she felt beneath his humble roof. In  many ways he .leminded her of her  father,   and where  the  similarity   wis  lacking it was altogether in favor of  "Valleyfield. , He ��������� had a refined dignMv  of manner which equalled her parent".--,  but beneath that he had the pulsation*  ot hi'- youth'and a grave masterful self  v-liaut way that was so extremely ar-  rraetive.     '  On the sixth day after her accident.  Elizabeth awoke   from her couch'in .he  "sitting   room,"   which had   been   given  up to her by Valleyfield, conscious that  hhe was once more quite well.    She al  lowed Valleyfield to cook breakla&t, but  after lie had gone to the mine.  a*. w::s  his  custom,'Elizabeth put on  an   apron  il'id for the first time in her life (unless  you   can   say  that  the  few  days   spent  with  her  father's' housekeeper  in   Xew  \ork' City   could  be  so termed) 'b'.;s,< d  hei'oelf with the duties of housekeeping.  Hhe swept the lloor, dusted tho-pie.-uivs  aud   as   best   she   could    blackened   ���������i.e  stove.    When the dinner hour approach-'  ed  she   pealed the potatoes   (Vaileyheld  liad   always  , cooked     them   w.th   '.he  "*.kin������"   on),    and   after   making   some  toast, roasted the ham on a skewer before the (ire, allowing tHe fat to drip on  the  bread.     When   Valleyfield   returned  dinner was ready and awaiting his (ogling,    lie was much surprised, aud for  some . une-'.plained  ,cause,    turned   very  white,   then   he   recovered   himself ,an<l  said quietly:  "Do you  think you should have done  this'.'    Are you quite recovered'.'" .  /'Oh. yes!" she replied, "and yon hav,e  been to kind to me. It would be st a4 ge  if I could not show my appreciation, n  a little way." t '  ' In the few days'that followed ICluab i.h  took entire charge of the'cabin.and thai  gave' Valleyfield more time at the in i: ���������.  though bis evenings were visually siiei.t  with Elizabeth in rambling through the  groves   and   valleys:      , '  These evenings were a source of rap  lure to both these people. The .move,  the nature of each' unfolded itself to  the other.,the more valued to each cth.-r  the characteitistics of each nature ba-  came. Valleyfield interested , Elizabe.h  with descriptions oi the legends of th������>  early mines, which he had heard fro -i  the old miners, and the superstition's of  the early searchers for silver and gold.1  while she in turn told him of her-travel  in Switzerland and of her school days  'after her mother's death. He never  spoke to her on the subject'-of his eary  life, and she never mentioned the ( 1  mores to him.  ' I do no't think that,eith.er\iUeuipU'd to  gauge how sweet those'even in if* we.     r  them.    They liftedthe cup to their li-s  and  drank, without   question.     Tn' this  beautiful  spot,  without  anyone to  say  them nay, they drifted down the'stream  that bore them onward, absorbed in the  beauty of a sensation which hitherto they  had not- known.    They seemed removed  in such rambles from tthe, sin  and  pnip.  of earth, juifl passed down paths 'whkh  led to the  blissful  dells  and  valleys  of  ������. new and  beautiful Eden  in the distance' beyond.    To" the  woman this  uow  experienee     was    indescribably   ������sweH.  She  hat!   been thrown in   contact  wiih  manv masculine natures, as the reader  Knows, but none had she hitherto meL so  fiank. so true or so noble as this man's  was, and the keeping of his. cabin fov  him and  the  rp ��������� iMes  with m him  in  tho  evening sunlighi    rought to her a new.  yet ecstatic sensation too absorbing for  words. ������and   as  Godfreys  had  not  sen*  tor her, she made no effort to take the  initiative in this regard.    However, she  was   brought  to  he?   senses    some^li.-r  rudely one day by the meeting of Ei^ie  in one of the valleys.    Then she kuew  that her companionship with Valleyfieid  was the subject  ot much gossip  in :h������  land. and. that she w.ould have to a^oid  b  scandal.     Writing  a* hasty   note  ex  plaining that  she was now fully re covert d,   and   tiiat  her  friends   had   called  toi her, she left this in the cabin where  Valleyfield was sure to see it, tL������*j s';e  followed Elsie, and took up her visit at  the Godfreys again.  The antagonism displayed by the Godfreys toward Valleyfield aroused Eli/a-  bc-th\s resentment, and she inquired of  Elsie as to  its cause.  "Why, its just here," answered Elsie.  "That" fellow Valleyfield found a ric'i  lode in the drift, and was fool'enouv.li  t" want to give the whole benefit of his  find to the owners of the mine."'

A device has been invented by a  western packing house for picking  chickens. There is a receptacle in  which the fowl is placed after being  killed, and into this are turned several cross currents of air from electrical fans revolving sit the rate of  5,000 revolutions per minute. In the  twinkling of an eye the bird is  stripped of its feathers, even to the  tiniest particles : of down, and the  machine is ready for another. The  hint must have beon taken from tornadoes..  As a result of much confinement  within doors, and the consequent  lach of fresh air and he ilthiul exercise, most women "not only lose much  in figure and complexion, hue also  suffer more'or less from serious bodily derangements as the result of thin,  watery blood and exhausted nervousi  system. ..-,.'���������  More than nine-tenths of the cases  of diseases peculiar to women are directly due to a weakened condition of  the nerves, and can be cured thoroughly and permanently by taking  mild outdoor exercise, breathing  plenty of pure, fresh air���������and using  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food to form new'  blood and revitalize the depleted nervous system..  It takes time to build up the system, anew, to fill the shrivelled arteries with new, rich blood, restore the  ��������� wasted nerve cells, and renew the activities of the bodily organs, but the  persistent use of Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food will accomplish these results'  and bring health and happiness to  weak,  nervous   and  suffering women.  Mrs. Chas. H. Jones, Pierceton,  Que., writes: "Foi' years I have been  a great sufferer with my heart    and  nerves. I would take shaking spells,  and a dizzy, swimming feeling would  come over me. Night after night I  ���������would never close my eyes, and my  head would ache as though, it would  burst. At last I had to keep to my  bed, aiid though my doctor attended  me from fall until spring, his medicine did not help me. I haive no^r  taken five boxes of Dr. Chase's Nerv������  Food, and it has done me more good  than I ever believed a medicine could  do. Words fail to express my gratitude for the wonderful cure brought  about by this treatment."  Mrs. Margaret Iron, Tower Hill, N.  B., writes: "Dr. Chase's Nerve Food  has done me a world of good.! I was  so weak that I could not walk twice  the length of the house. Since usingl  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I have been  completely restored. I can walk a  mile without any; inconvenience.,  Though 76 years old and quite fleshy,  I do my own housework, and considerable sewing, knitting and reading!  besides.

Then   when  some  boys from the garrison at the neighboring town came over, as they often did, to  spend the day at Clonellon it was clear  that she  could  twist  them,  too,   as the  saying goes, round her little finger.   And  yet all the while she seemed not to care  very much for her power, to have, very  little love for all those people who loved  her so well.   She laughed and talked with  all alike and seemed happiest when alone  with: her dog and her violin on some quiet  hillside, for her. music she really  loved,  and though sometimes:she -would throw  down  her instrument  like  a child  in  a.  rage, declaring that as she could not play  what she wished she would never touch  it again, five minutes later she would be  playing her vexation  away by a  bright  melody  or some  crooning  Irish   lullaby.  And it was in those latter softer, moods  that   Greville   liked   her  best.     He  felt  nearer to her then, and it was in one of  them the day he had  to rejoin his regiment at the Curragh that he found courage toi tell  her  his  whole mind.     ','You  have seen me every day, practically all  day, for the last four weeks, Miss Sheila,"  he said.    "You must have seen what my  feelings  are   for  you,   although   it   has  pleased  you  to   play  at  ignorance,  and  you have had plenty of time to show -me  that you did not want ray  love  if that  was so.

At the time he had answered  with scoffing at tu'e fairy lore, with faith  in the power of his love. But sometimes  oven his heart sank. She was such a  child: her moods'passed away quickly as  the ripples on the water caused- by a  -summer wind. ��������� Never did he see her so  serious again. Often did he wonder how  anything so lovable could seem to have so  little love to give. True, when he would  snatch some days from his regimental  duties to visit them, she would meet liim  with sparkling eyes and laugbintr lips  but so, too, would she bid him farewell  and welcome the next guest, and never  could' Ronald convince himself that she  treated, him otherwise than as a spoiled  child' might' treat some indulgent big  brother obedient to her'whims, arid never  could he* discern in her music, the only  true mirror, of her mind, a trace of���������  ' Infinite passion and the pain  >  ' Of finite hearts that yearn.  And then the war broke out, and he  had to go. He had only one day to spend  with .her after he received the news that  his regiment was next ou the list for embarkation. He told her hesitatingly, wondering what she would say to him. hardly knowing what he hoped: whether for  a clinging of soft arm* arid imploring not  to so or courage belitling a soldier's wife.

Aid  of   a  Secret of Bag-gry Engrlislt Clothed.  The1 reason for the "baggy" appearance  of English clothes is given by a writer in  The King, who discusses what he calls  the "absurd theory that a man's clothes  should fit. It seems a paradox to say  that a good tailor never tries to make  them fit, but it is a pregnant truth nevertheless. I remember a worthy tailor holding forth-to me with due solemnity on  this subject. 'My American customers,'  he said, 'sometimes try to persuade me  that a good New York tailor is ahead of  us Londoners because he gives a better  fit. I reply that if I wanted to.make my  clothes fit the figure i could do just as  well as or even better than my American  rival.    It takes a genius to mt.    .��������� them  Circumvented    "With    the  Telegraph Moy. '  "English 'red tape' is a queer thing,"  observed a well known New York politician who has just returned from a visit  to London. "More than once I ran foul  of it within the sacred precincts of thp  British house of commons. One day I  had an engagement to meet an Irish  M. P. there some 15 minutes before the  house opened. I handed iny card to the  blue coated functionary who guarded  the entrance corridor with the request  that he hand it to the M. P. iu question.  " 'Sorry, sir,' said he, 'I cawn't do it.  There hain't hany messengers' 'ere yet,  and rnj' borders is not to take hany cards  myself.'  "Persuasion and entreaty were alike  wasted upon him. Having had previous  experience of the potent influence of a  shilling, or two judiciously bestowed, I  attempted bribery.. But he proved to be  incorruptible.  "The situation was embarrassing and  annoying. My engagement concerned a  matter of importance, to myself at least.  I-.knew that the M. P. was within,a few  '''���������hundred feet of me. and therel was effectually prevented from getting at him  by a barrier of 'red tape,' as if there  stretched stone walls and iron bars between us. At last I noticed that there'  was ��������� a telegraph, office in the rotunda  just a few yards away. I rushed to it  and hastily wrote this message:  " T am here, but the blank fool of a  doorkeeper won't take my card to youl'  "The clerk gravely took my message.  I paid as much for its transmission as ii  it had beeu directed to somobody in the  most remote corner of the British isles.  ���������A-telegraph, boy. being privileged.'to "pass  the doorkeeper, conveyed it to the representative of a somewhat turbulent constituency. He responded immediately,  and I had the satisfaction of knowing  that for once I had circumvented English 'red tape.*"--'  Her Reason.
