"I'm in luck again." he remarked to
himself, as he reached the hig yellow
boulder at the utile.
"Good morning, Miss Johnson."
She looked up to see who spoke and

"All the gcutlcinen at tho hotel go.

She had not asked [him to enter the
garden, and when, without waiting
for an invitation, he mounted the stile
and came towards her, he said to him-
"She's trying to bo coy. It only
means, 'Come In."'
Whatever she meant, she paid no
further attention to him till ho was
close by her side; and when <lie again
spoko she stood tip and began to take
off the old gloves alio had evidently
worn for the work in tho garden, as if
intending to go into the house.
"I enjoyed our walk so much lust

perately lonely at tho hotel, —you see,

She could not in politneess resist any
longer, and said, with a faint smile,—•
"There is little that would interest

"Oh, yes, it is. I like it immensely.
You have such a wide view of tho sea
and the surf dashing on the rocks all

you might say. It's all very interest-
ing, I assure you. It must be grand
Tho girl made no reply, and turned
and looked out over tho water with
a peculiar grave and far-away look ta
in her eyes.
"The sea is always sad—to tlioso
who kuow it best"
"Come! you're a trifle low-spirited
owing to your brother's absence on the
yaoht. Why not take a little walk
along the beach and let mo cheer you
She stared at him in open-eyed won-
der, and for a moment he was slightly
abashed, as if ho had gone too far.
'•Capt. Johnson is not my brother."
"Oh! Beg pardon. Natural mis-
This word was spoke ti as it it were
out of the aky.
"What is it, father?"
To the young man's amazement, the I
voice that had seemed to drop out of
the upper air came from tho light- |
house tower over their heads. There
on tho iron balcony around the lnntern
stood an elderly party, in blue overalls
and straw hat both much the worse for
oil, and looking calmly down on them
both. The young man glanced up ut
the sturdy figure overhead, and then
looked oft' over tho water, rcmarkitig
"I suppose the old chap lias been
observing us all the time."
Miss Johnson, as soou as the voice
came, had promptly replied, and now
stood looking up to see what was
"Fetch me up my screwdriver. Some
stupid bird flew ag'in' the light last
night and smashed one of the windics.
Guess if you look round you will find
"One minute, father." Then, turn-
ing to her visitor, she said, "You must
excuse mo for a few moments. Father
"All right. I'll wait for you."
With that she entered the house, and
the young man began to walk slowly
about the garden and little grass plot.
He would wait till she returned. Once
in a while he glanced furtively vp at
"Coufouud the man! He may have
been watching us ever since I arrived."
Presently he heard footsteps coming
round the white tower. It was Mai,
and in her haud she held the dead
body of it beautiful sea-bird.
"Hero it is, I found it on the
"Dear me, Miss Johnson! I was not
aware you were a sportsman. When
did you kill it?"
"I kill it! I could not do such a cruel
thing as that. The bird was killed by
flying against the light in the night."
"How very singular! Docs it often
"Yes. The poor creatures see tho
light, and, thinking it some beautiful
object, they fly towards it and dash
out their poor little lives against the
glass. Sorrietimes they even break the
glnss of the lantern in flying towards
"Queer, isn't it?"
"Yes. So strange that any creature
should meet harm in seeking what it
thinks desirable or lovely."
Again the big voice out of the air.
"Well, father, what do you want?"
"Have to trouble you to come up
hero and help me a bit."
A few moments later Mr. Royal
\ ardstickie was walking slowly along
the bluff towards his hotel. Ills in-
terview had been short and not wholly
satisfactory. However, it was a be-
ginning, and he would do better next
time. Just then a gull wheeling over-
head threw its flying shadow across
"What fools theso sea-birds are!
breaking their necks in trying to get
ut something that would ruin them if
they had it!"'
If tho young man had hud eyes to
see, he would have drawn back when
that flying shadow in silence crossed
Unfortunately, having eyes he saw
gfcThrec days passed, and Mr Royal
Yardstickie began to find the I loll
quite an entertaining place. He had
culled every day on Mai Johnson, nnd
had even walked to tho village with
her and visited the little post*
oftice and store and carried a
bundle (a very small one) for her
on the way home, lie observed sundry
blinds drawn back nnd curtains raised
as if inquiring minds were looking out
to see who passed the white houses, but
ho paid no heed to this or to the
glances of the young people and others
from the hotel passing on the village
The piazza gossips knew ull about
it They said it was scandalous that a j
young man who came to the place
quite aloue, and whose mother was t. .
join him here iu a few days, should j
pay such marked attentions to a girl j
in the village while so many charming
and, of course, superior girls were to j
bo found in the little colony ut the j
beach. His mother would certainly
not approve of his conduct were she to
hear of it. The chorus might have 1
continued with increasing power, just '
as a motive among the violins muy j
spread through the orchestra, had not
the whole band come to an abrupt
finale in a little burst of excitement
over uu unexpected arrival at the ho-
Jack Manning's r yacht was re-
ported off the Hoi I about 3
o'clock one afternoon, and natu-
rally tho news came to the hotel.
The moment Royal Yardstickie heard
of it ho walked by the short road
through the woods to the lauding. He
was having a very good time, but if
Jack Mauning kept his word there
was promise of still greater amuse-
ment. Resides, his progress at tho
light had not been so rapid as he had
wished. Miss Johnson was reserved,
more so than any other young woman
ho had ever met, and though her fresh
and naturnl beauty won his admiration
ho felt that in some fashion she kept
him at arm's length. As he came in
sight of the wharf he saw the yacht at
anchor in the bay, and a boat puttiug
off, as if to come ashore. By quicken-
ing his pace ho could meet the party
at the dock.
There was the usual crowd at the
end of tho wharf—fishing people and
village girls, fashionable misses in
nnutlcal costumes, und plenty of chil
dren from tho village and tho colony,
and, child-like, fraternizing with
cheerful freedom. Ho was just too

in here for some fresh water. Sail

spare berth now. Won't you join us
for a few days?"
"Delighted, my boy, delighted. Let

With merely a nod to the ladies,
Royal excused himself and started
back to his hotel.
The others also parted at the head
of the wharf, Miss Boylston and Mr.
Manning going to the little postoffiee
to look for letters, and Mai and the
skipper taking the beacli-path to-
wards the lighthouse.
For a little space they walked on In
silence, as if content nnd happy to be
in each other's company, he thinking
of a happy day to coine, and she
troubled with a vague distrust that
had spruug up in her heart. When
they passed the last house she put her
arm in his, and said—
"Couldn't you stay at home, deary,
"Dow could it be, Mai? I should be
obliged to hire some one in my place or
give up the position; and we can hardly
afford that whilo the fishing is so bad.
You know wo aro trj'ing to save up
money for a certain day that is to
"I know that, deary, and j'et it is so
lonely when you are away. Father is

well—how can I tell you?—I'm lonely,

are away. (Jet Capt Withrow to take
your place for this trip, just this once.
It will only be for a few days."
"Why, what's tho trouble, Mai?
You know I must be away more or less
all summer. What troubles you?"
"Yes, there is; and you must tell we
what it is."
"I will, deary. It is best I should.
You saw that Mr. Yardstickie?"
"The black-eyed chap who tried to
help you over the stile that morning?"
"Yes. You know Mr. Manning in-
troduced him to me with tho others on
the yacht, and then we came ashore
together in Capt. Glass's boat He of-
fered to escort mo home, and I couldn't
very well refuse; and since then he has
called at the light every day."
"Yes. Father did not seein to like
him ut first,—for of course I had to
present him to father; you wouldn't
havo me rude even to a stranger,—and
now father seems to like to see him.
and makes him feel quite at home."
"And does he mean to stay here
"I think not. He says he is waiting
for his mother, a Mrs. Judge Gearing
of New York, and then they may goto
Newport or Narragansett I'ier."
"I hope they will. Now, dtarv, just
excuse me a moment- You go on to
the house, and I'll run back to the vil-
lage for a moment"
"You won't be long? You know you
sail in two hours."
"I may not sail at all. I'll return
With that the blond giant turned and
strode away towards the village. Mai
stood in the path, looking after him.
"I'erhaps I ought not tc have told
him. How much he loves me! Dear
Sam! He's born almost without a
tongue, but he often says, 'The aarmoc
thru, then comes the do.' "
It did not take the skipper long tc
find his employer.
"Oh. certainly, Capt. Johnson. II

safe man, all right I've no objections.
Perhaps It will do you good to be
ashore for a few days. Mai beouis a
little low-spirited. Stay at homo with

Don't bother about Capt Withrow's
pay in your absence. I'll fix that all
The two men shook hands and
parted iu the little street Mr. Man-
ning went over to the hotel with Miss
Boylston, and, leaving her there, re-
turned to the wharf. Mr. Royal Yard-
stickie soon after put in an appearance,
arrayed iu a truly nautical suit of blue,
as befitted the occasion. As for the
skipper, he went homo with a light
heart If any city visitors came now
to the light they would find it indeed a
There was some little delay in get-
ting the new skipper and introducing
him to his new command, and it was
nearly dusk when the schooner steered
away for Martha's Vineyard under all
t-ail, for the night promised to l>e calm,
and the party on board wero in no
haste. In fact if they did not reach
Cottage City till daylight it would be
just as well.
As the yacht crept out of the harbor
the white stcauibout from New London
caino in. There wore many people on
hoard, for tho summer visitors wore
flocking to tho beaches. She passed
quite close to tho yaoht, aud a few
people on tho upper dock came to the
side and Waved friendly handkerchiefs
at tho passing schooner. Among them
stood a young and handsome woman
iu fashionable attire. Sho seemed a
stranger, and the friendly fluttering of
handkerchiefs amused her.
"These Americans are so strango It
is not at all like la belle France."
The steamer pulled up ut the wharf,
and there was a murmur of voices as
the crowd on deck mingled with tho
throng on tho lauding, friends, rela-
tions, lovers, meeting again iu tho
pleasant summer weather, care and
the city left behind, every one in good
spirits and struggling to get ashore
und to find their trunks and get u seat
in the long open wagons called
"barges," and all in that quiet good
humor that marks an American crowd
on pleasure bent The gayly-painted
barges were soon filled, aud drove
rapidly away into the village and out
through the woods to tho cottage and
hotel. At tho hotel all the guests
were out to greet fathers, lovers, and
husbands, und to see the new ar-
Then from the barge Fairy Queen
descended a young and handsome
woman, arrayed iu a costume that
seemed to fit her marvelously. Behind
her came a little maid carrying the
hand-bags and looking every inch a
French peasant girl. With tho de-
lightful freedom of American seaside
hotels, the young woman, followed by
her maid, went directly to tho office.
There were young girls wait-
ing near to receive their let-
ters from the mail bag thut
hud just been handed to the clerk.
There were men and boys in negligent
seashore suits standing and sit-
ting about in the breezy office
much as if it were some big and
pleasant family room. That the
stranger should ask for a room and
prepare to enter her name in the regis-
ter did not excite tho least comment.
The clerk opened the book for her. and
she wrote, in a bold hand, "M'lle
Louise Rochet and maid, New York*
As she did so, a couple of young girls
with the usual hotel manners of Ameri-
can children calmly took the register,
as if to read her name, and then
turned back the pages in idle curiosity.
She observed them carefully, and as
they turned tho pages ran her eve
swiftly over the list of names. Sud-
denly there was a bright look in her
eyes as if she had made a discovery, a
peculiar glance such as mightbescen
in the eyes of some animal at
sight of its expected prey. Only for
an instant, and then the black lashes
swept her chcek, and a faint flush
spread over her face.
The stupid clerk saw only a remark-
ably pretty woman, and noticed noth-
ing more. Had he had eyes to see, he
might have been less at ease in loftily
bidding the hallboy take the lady's
bag to tho parlor and call a maid tc
show her to a room. Tho maid found
some difficulty in pleasing her lady*
ship, and it was not till several rooms
had been examined that sho was satis-
fied and took two front rooms near
stairs, the most expensive suite in tho
hotel. The housemaid disappeared to
direct the porter where to bring th«
trunks, and M'lle Rochet was left with
her own muid in her new quarters
She bade her maid open the bags, aud
then sat down to observe tho situa

instance in which Charles Sumner
neatly evaded u tacit criticism from
Mucauluy. It was at a London din-

replied Sumner, somewhat sententi-
ously, "repose on tho banks of the
Potomac." "His ashes!" said Macaulay,
who was present; "was his body
burned?" "No." replied Sumner, who
perceived tho intended satire; "it with
buried, like the forefathers of the
hamlet, and, like them, 'in his ashes
live his wonted fires.'"
The custom of l ottling tears is pe-
culiar to the people of Persia. There
it constitutes an important part of the
obsequies of the dead. As the mourn-
ers arc sitting 'round and weeping, the
master c' the ceremonies presents each
one with a piece of cotton, wool or
sponge with which to wipe away the
tears. This cotton, wool or sponge is af-
terward squeezed into a bottle, und the
tears arc preserved as a powerful and
efficacious restorative for those whom
every other medicine has failed to re-
vive. It is Ut this custom that allusion
is made in Psalms LVI, 8, "Put thou
my tears into thy bottle."—Brooklyn
