Raphael shakes hands warmly with  the barrister, springs lightly back into  tho pony caniago, takes up the reins,  and tho-hoofs or the spirited animals  clatter on the hard road leading back  to Deepdalo. All the vague uneasiness  and apprehension in regard to his  mother's approaching marriage is.lulled,  to rest within tho bosom of the young  man, and his heart swells joyously as  his thoughts revert and tenderly lingers  over his own newly-found happiness.  The next day Mr. Kandnl requests a  private interview with the mistress of  Deepdale, and when that ' lady sends  word to the young man that sho ubnll  be pleased to see him immediately in  the library, ho goes into her presence  with u pale face and loudly beating  heart. By a bravo effort * he crushes  down his' agitation, and after a few  preliminary remarks proceeds in a  frank, manly fashion to astonish the  lady by asking, her consent to her  daughter's betrothal with himself.*  "As you are aware, Mrs.* St. (Clair,"  says the young man in n low musical  voica, "I have no fortune to place at  your daughter's feet. But my heart, my  life, my love, ' are hers, and when I  shall have succeeded in working my  way up to tho position I intend, with  God's help, to attain���a position which  I need not feel ashamed to ask Beatrice  to sharo with me, havo I your consent  to claim ber hand in marriage?"  At   first,    Mrs. St. Clair   i.s  too overcome   by    astonishment   to    be   able  to  speak.   Sho has , been so engrossed with  her own love affair as well ns ia making  her   business   arrangements   satisfactory  to   her   own   mind   ��� beforo     tho   " fast  approaching day of her marriage   should  arrive,   that   she   has    utterly   failed to  notice the growing attachment'   between  ber   daughter   and  young Randal'.    She  now   bows   her   head on   her   brensd in  thoughtful   silence.    This   suitor for her  daughter's hand i.s poor   in   this world's  goods; so had been the   husband   of hor  own youth, and where, ah   whero, could  a happier   union   than   theirs   had   bqen  ho   found?    Yourig   Randal,  in spite   of  his poverty!    is    the   par ' excellence, in  Kaphnel's eyes, of   manly   nobility, and  comes from one .of,., the   first families in  the-South.    After   all,* sho   tolls herself,  whnt matters this poverty.   Beatrice will  havo a fortune; of., her   own', which   will  bo   ample   for   her   whole   life, even   if  Randal, ns her husband,   should   fail   to  acquire   wealth    of   his own.    Thon sho  thinks   of    the honest,light which shone  In   the,  eyes   of . tho . young   man now  standing before her,when ho said: "With  tho love of your daughter  for my powerful incentivo,   with   God's   help, J shall  gain a position in   lifo which I shall not  ba   ushnme'd to   ask   Beatrice to share."  Why should   sho   dismiss   him   without  hope���this   manly young   Hercules, who  is anxious to lay his life at her daughter's  feet.   Then thoughts of her own approaching marriage obino   to    hor,    with    Beatrice's disapproval of   the same.'   Will it  not be well to purchase   the   smilos and  cheerfulness of her  daughter on this important event which drawn   so.  nigh, by  granting   thu prayer of   hor lover, when  all things else   considered   tiro   favorable  to the match?   At. length   the reverie is  ended.  Sho raises her head, and tho look  on her fair faco is not one, to   ruthlessly  dash   all      of   his   fond    hopes   to   the  ground. ,  "Have you spoken to her brother  about this?"  is all sho says.  "I have, rnadnme, and ho line done  mo the great honor to refer mo to yourself."  For nnHwor, tho lady's hand touched  tho boll cord, and the anxious pleader  is loft standing by the library tablo,  not certain whether tho lady's next  move will bo to grant his prayor, or to  order the footman to show 'him. to. the  outsido door.  lio   le   not doomed to endure this tor  turing suspense long, for ,tho footman  soon appears and stands bowing before  his mistress, awaiting her order.  "Edwards., request your young mistress to ' attend mo immediately in the  library."  "Yes, raadamo " and Kdwards ducks  his head and disappears.  The large library clock has ticked  away Its five minutes, a tiny rap falls  on The library door. Percy steps to open  it. thereby letting in a flood of sunshine  for himself into the lofty old room, as  his heart's mistress stands smiling and  blushing bewitchingly on the threshold.  She bows to- Mr. Randal, and her eyes  look nt him into the room where sits  her mother.  "Did you send for me, mamma?"    she  asks in her sweet, low voice.  , "I did.  Coma and sit beside mo on th-?  ^ofa,  Beatrice," replies Mrs.    St.    Clair.  ' Randal" softly   c' $*> i    the   dour,   and  walks   hack   to   h*n   old position beside  the   table.    When    tho   girl    has   seated  herself as   she   is   bid, her mother turns  to her, and says:���  ' Beatrice, Mr. Randal has just told  me of his love for you, and asked my  consent to your betrothal. My child, do  you love this man, and ore you wllllna  to wait until ho attains a social position  dquul to your own?"  Beatrice throws ono loving glance  from her bright eyes upon her lover's  radiant face, as he stands beforo them  tho embodiment of manly strength, and  bhichingly answers," with charming  frankness:���  "I do, mother; and lam willing to  w:iit for years if necessary, and be  patient und happy in waiting. But 1  cannot endure to think of life apurt  from him forever; and I should even t;e  willing to marry him as soon a,s he has  graduated from the medialr college, nnd  assist him to attain success." And n  deeper ruby orimson dyes hor fair brow.  "God bless you,' -rniy noble darling,"  murmurs the happy lover, and Mrs. St.  Clnlr oontinues:���  "Then, there is nothing loft for mo to  do, but to givo my consent to the  betrothal, and implore heaven's blessing  upon it," she says, with visible emotion. ���        .   ' i  "Dearest and best of mothers," murmurs Beatrice, melting into tears, while  Randal comes over and kneels bosido tho  sofa where tho mother nnd'daughter are  sitting. ' Tho girl slips from her place  beside her mother, and Mrs. St. Clair,  laying hor hands geDtly upon the head  of each, asks God to bless their betrothal Porcy .Randal takes the hand  of Beatrice, and slips the ring of  betrothal upon her finger. It is a plain  golden band���his own mother's wed-  ding'ring, and had been pl-icod on his'  finger by that mother when her hands  were growing cold in the ley touch of  death, .with a low murmured prayer  that the sight of the precious memento  might make him strong to overcome  temptation, and keep his feet fn tho  path his mother's love would fain havo  him tread. Reverently, he places the  worn circlet upon the hand of the fair1  being kneeling by his. side, while the  image of his blessed mother's face  comes between his eyes and' tho faco of  his affianced wife; and who shall say'  Chat,the happy spirit of that* mother is-  not hovering there, 'breathing blessings  upon them, as she witnesses tho joy of  her only son?  ,The storm clouds .which had swept  over Deepdale a fow days .since, and had  threatened to engulf thnt happy homo  in gloom, are fast disapiwanng. lenving  the glorious sunshine of happiness in  tlieir stead. ', t  To add further to the-happiness of all,  young St. Clair has told his mother of  his own love for Helen Pendleton, and  of her willingness to become his wife./  To his unspeakable joy, Mrs. St. Clair  not only gave her consent to their  union, but further added that Helen  was the very woman of all their exten-'  sivo acquaintance that she should choose  for her son's wife, and later sho seeks  Helon in her own room, kisses and cries  ovor the girl, and gives her a daughter's  place in her affectionate heart.  "Well, by the eternul!" ejaculates old'  Gcnoral Dale, when informed of how  matters stood with the inmates of Deep-  dale, whither himself and Mrs. Dale  have returned, to be in attendance at  tho wedding of Mrs. St. Clair and Captain Lennard. "By tho eternal! Three  pair of engagod people in tho-house at  onco! By .Tovol whyt,not havo u trio of  weddings, and have done with it?"  Mrs. St. Clair laughs her soft littlo  laugh, and replies:���  "Ah I my dear Gcnoral, tho boys are  only taken on probation, as tho Motho-  dists say, and must wait until they can  write M. D. after their names bofore  they   can become benedicts."  Tho   wedding    of    Mrs.   St.  Clair and  Captain' Lenti ird '    is     a     very     quiot,  recherche   affair, indeed.    No  guests are  invited to attend   from the   city, except  the Dak*- and o friend of   Captain ' Len-  nard's, Lawyor Mason, whom   the   Captain has asked permission to invite.:-Tho  marriaae is to ho celebrated in the Decp-  dnlo   Chapel, which   Is   situatod   on tho  Deepdale estate,   and was built   and endowed   by    Mrs.:  St.    Clnlr when,   a<3 a  young    wife    and    mother,    sho' had ro-  .turned from    Europe, and catno to reside  for   the   season   at Deepdal.o,    Hero her  ohildren had been carried in their infancy  to   the baptismal    font   to   receive, the  sacred rites of   baptism.    Hero   tho   hi?t  services for tho dead had been   read over  tho   remains of the beloved    husband   of  her   youth, tlio   father   of   her children,  and   from these sacred aisles   had    boon  carried his body to its   last   peaceful   ro-  stting place,beneath the-monarch',  beech  and   lichen   treoB   which,    shadow     the  beautiful   little bChapel, whero ' it   now  lies "sleeping the sleep   that   knows   no  waking,"   all   unmindful   of   the.hope's  and fears, the smiles and   tears   of ���those  loved ;Ones, still acting, their  parts upon  the stage of lifo.  The morning of the wedding has  broken dark and gloomy. Tho wealth of  autumn sunshine,; which had so long  Jingorod ovor hill, sen .and dale, has  suddenly been withdrawn, and storm  clouds aro scudding across tho gloomy  horizon, driven by tho ., rising I gale,  yyhich is blowing briskly from the  northwest, lashing tho water's of the  bay into a foaming, southing mass,  and bringing down with it an occasional  angry dash of rain, which comes pelting against the grand windows of 'Deep-  dale in mimic fury.  ���"It is too bad, that this sudden ohango  in the woathor should como upon tho  very day fixed for tho wot!ding,"  grumbles old Mrs. Dalo to her husband,  as she looks from tho window of hor  room out upon thol.awn below, thfj. aspect  of which had been'so woefully, changed  by tho woathor since tho day before.  "It looks pretty rough, iny dear���  pretty rough for a wedding day,"  answers tho old General, who in volvet  dressing-gown and slippers, has   walked  to the window and is standing beside  his wife, and with her viewiii}*- tne  cheerless aspect of the woathor without.

(To  Be  Continued.)  NAVAL  MYSTERIES.  War Vesacln of the United State.*' That  Hnye Dinnpneared.  Curious disappearances and accidents  to our warships characterized tho early  history of our navy, and in spite of (ill tho  efforts of tho navy department to explain  tho cause of tho disasters many of them  aro ns absolute mysteries "today as when  they happened.  When tho government built ten new  guubouts to prosocuto the .war against  Tripoli in 1805, they, wero sent out as  soon as they wero finished and boforo they  wore named. .Each ono was given a nuin-  bor and dispatched to tho seat of tho war.  No. 7 sailed from New York July 20,  ' 1S05,, uridor tho command of Lioutouant  Ogcl vie, nnd after sho cleared Sandy'IIook  light sho was never heard from again.  Sho went down with all on board before  ���ho had even been named.  A most extraordinary accident was that  which happened to tho corvct Mononga-  hela at Santa Cruz in.-1807.  Whiloat anchor in tho harbor a tremendous tidal wave lifted her upon itscr  and carried her cleau over tho town of.  Fredorichstfidt and back again without  injuring tho town or tho boat to any great  oxtont. Tho receding wavo landed her on  the beach instead of In tho deep water of  tho harbor, and it cost, our government  $100,000 to float her again. Fully as  strange was tho fato of tho sloop-of-war  Waterqc. Sho was anchored in the harbor  ofoArica, Peru, in 186S, when a hugo.ti-  diil wave swept Inland and flooded tho  whole city. ' The wave carried tho sloop'  several miles inland and finally landed  hor in 'the midst of a tropical forest. It  was impossiblo to release herfrom such a  peculiar position, and thogovernmcntsold  her for a nominal sum. The, purchasers  turned tho vessel info a hotel, and tho round ns of that onco formidable war vessel  loom up in tho tropic.il forest today as a  monument to thc power of tidal waves.  Among other cases of disaster .which are  attributed totho violenceof tho waves or  weather thero is none moro interesting  than that of tho strango fato of tho,Snra-  . toga. When sho sailed from Philadelphia  in October, 17S0, under tho command of  Captain James Young, there was no finer  or -handsomer war vessel afloat. That  sho was as formidable as sho was attractive was soon demonstrated in a practical  way. After cruising around a short time  sho captured threo British vessels In succession, and then, with hrr prizes, sho  started to return to Philadelphia, but oft  tho Delaware capes she encountered a  British ship of tho line. As tho Saratoga  carried only IS guns and tho Intrepid was  a 71 gun ship, Captain Young considered t  it safer' to run away. Tho enemy did not  chaso her far, but returned to protect and  recapture tho British prizes. Tho Saratoga sailed away ' in tho very teoth of a  storm, and sho wax never heard from  again.

I  am, now 75  yours of   age, and  am   at   the present  time, and in fact  ever   since I  took a  course   of   Dr.   Williams'" Pink   Pills  about tAvo years ago, have  bwn enjoying excellent health.    Before that time  I had   been   ailing, for  .some months,  finally I was attacked with'suit rheum,  which came out mostly  on   my hands.  It was not long after its first appearance  .before I was unable  to  do any work at  all with my hands.    I   resorted   to  all  the domestic cures I' could  hear of, but  tlie disease kept on  its  course, getting  won-e and worse, until the palms of my  bauds   and  my  fingers wore a mass of  cracks, Open sores and hideous scabs.    I  .then' got   medicine   from  tlie  doctor,  which I used for .several' weeks, with no  benefit whatever,���my hands   still   becoming   more and  more crippled with  the disease.    My' general   health,   too,  at this time was poor and I got discouraged altogether, believing there was no  'help for tlie terrible complaint that was  gradually spreading over my hands and  up mywrists towards my arms.   It happened one day in conversation with an  acquaintance that  Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills   were t mentioned * in   connection  witli some other case  in the  neighborhood, and it was  suggested  that  I try  them for salt rheum.    I  had not much  faith in the trial, but concluded to get  a box and see .what good they'might do.'  To my  great" delight, after using the  box I, found  an   improvement  in  the  condition of   my   hands', and  I gotfsix  l^oxes more.   I did not use all these," for  before they were gone the  disease  hud  vanished aud my  hands were  as sound  as   ever.    The  new skin   came on  as  smooth aud fresh as if nothing'had been  the matter.    I took no  other  medicine  while using  tho   pills and  the whole  praise of the cure is due to them.    My  general health  was   also greatly benefitted by their use and I attended to my  work with more energy and  in  better  spirits than I had done for a number of  years.    I havo been iu excellent health  ever since for a man of  my years, and  no. sign  of   salt rheum  has   since appeared.    Tlie box or two of Pink  Pills  which I left unused were  taken by my  wife and did her much good.     I cannot  speak too highly of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills  and  am pleased to give my testimony to their merit, hoping others may  thereby be induced to use them in cases  like my own.

"Once again she started homeward  nnd by the way.she pumped and pushed  those pedals I know she was marl about  that, accident, and as she gained speed,  T also began to realize that my powers of  endurance, vvouid give out ere long, un-  ies-s she reduced her gait.   At last 1 had  to give up but. I said nothing to her,   I  it t her guide en homeward*, as I thought  sh.- would soon notice my absence and  then would either dismount or tall off, 1*  carod not which.   13ut she went on and I  gradually lost, sight- of h'*r in the darkness that was growing ui-on (he face of  the earth.   I was glad that she had gone  and I leisure!;- . limbed upon a rail fence  at the roadside and sat there meditating.   I was mad clear through and the  more I meditated the angrier I got.  But  at. last it dawned upon me that it was  not the proper thing for me to be sitting upon a wayside fence aijxl leave Ti  young b-idy to take her own way home  after nightfall,   ilorrorof horrors: suppose she' had fallen from  her bicycle  and at  this very instant was lyiog in  the road, possibly with a broken leg  or injured in some other w ay so as to be  unable   to  move.    Suppose a team of  spirited  horses were approaching and  the driver could not see that prostrate  form ancLran over it.   T'gh! the very  thought made my blood  run cold.   %I  jumped from the fence and started in  the direction in which. Miss Jones had  gone.    I walked along slowly,  but as  rnoro horrible possibilities earne lomv  mind T went faster until at last I v. as  running as fasr.asf could.'butevei*. then  T thought I waj, going at a sna;l\s pace.  Half a do7C-n Times I iinsgiued I saw  Miss- Jono-i on tin- ground nbqad of me  but always found it" to be but a, hallucination of my wild aud disordered brain.  I did finally reach town and !>ecause 1  had not found Miss Jones lying on the  road in a pool of blood I was sure (hat  nhe  had   boon   spirited away  or kid-  napped.  "I rushed to the borne of her parents.  Her brother John was sitting on the  porch smoking a horribly rank stogy  and when J excitedly asked him where  his sister was he looked at me as i hough  he considered me a lunatic. J implored  him to tell me, for the love he bore his  sister.  "He looked at .hie again, then .-slowly  turned bin eye* toward the side of the.  house.
