He stood under tho spicy pepper trG6s
looking doivn at her. his face softened by
a great tenderness. Hotv dainty and sweet
she wa3. Why was it that he seemed ever
to stand at the portals of paradise, catch
ing glimpses of the glory within, hut nevev
permitted to entr? And yet she had
promised to bo his wife, this beautiful
girl, given to him by the mighty ocean that
tossed its foam dashed spray on the ivhito
oeach at their feet.
She recognized his true worth, his nobil
ity of heart; she had given him all the
love her woman's heart had to give, and
yet and yet
He seemed intuitively to feel that there
were depths to her heart which he had
never fathomed; that she was capable of a
more intense, absorbing devotion than any
sentiment he had awakened in her.
At times when his great, unselfish heart
lay bare before her a shadow would creep
into her beautiful eyes and a tender regret
would quiver across her face, like the flut
tcrings of a memory; but the shadow never
became distinct enough for her to quite re
member. "It is as if there was something in my
past which I ought to recoil," she would
iay, nestling closer to liiru, as if imploring
his protection against the memory. "Oh,
that long, blank past of mine. "What Is it
that lies beyond the morning when you
found me en the beach, Jack?" she ques
tioned. "My darling, I would help you to solve
the mystery if I could, even though I knew
that the solving of it would break my own
heart," he replied, tenderly.
"As if it could," she whispered, slyly.
"You are tho uut man on earth, Jack, and
I wonder that you should care for a foolish
lirtle girl like me, who has forgotten every
thing she knew before she caoio to you
name, ae and all; who is so niuch a part
of your own self that the words she speaks
are your words; the songs she sings, your
songs; the thoughts she thinks, your
thoughts. When I awoke from that dread
ful death like stuior into which the terror
of the wreck or the almost death in the
waves bad plunged me, I had everything to
learn again, even to my alphabet and tho
names of the household furniture." She
laughed merrily at her misfortune, but tho
shadow deepened in the kind eyes regard
ing her so tenderly.
"Pi that reason it seems liko a most
unkind and unworthy advantage I am
taking." ho lesponded seriously. "Thert
iill always be a thought lying like a
shadow between us, dear, that if you could
remember your a.st you might ievcr havo
been my wife."
"I shall never think it, I am sure; but I
do wonder what that past was. It is so
trying, Jack, to know that a part of one's
existence is a blank. It is as if I had lived
on earth, died to it, and then come back
again under different conditions, and well,
it is vary annoying to sny the least." Then
seeing the shadow on his face, she laid her
hand in his and added, ceaxingly: "But lei
us forget it, Jack, dear, since we cannot ro
membar, let us try to feel as if all my past
was spent hee, in this pretty cottage by
the sea, with the love of your dear mother
and your dear tclf to 1:11 rll tho crevices of
it. This is the only home I have any knowl
edge of, and though we know that those
other years were spent somewhere, it mat
ters little to us where, since we are all tht
world to each ether, you and I."
He clasped her cloae iu his strong arms,
and kissed her trusting, upturned face,
but the ache did not go out of his heart;
the pain of it grew more poignant as the
days passed by end she became dearer to

suggestions of a higher, nobler life than

every gesture of her white, shapely hands.
She mmst have received a blow on the

had been washed itshere, for sho had f or

the best of which she was capable.
They were very busy in the cottage on
the beach making ready for the coming
The morning of the marriage day she
said to Jack's mother:

life and taught mo .nil 1 knew. When
once I am his wife I hope that lie accident,
or circumstance, wil) ever reveal my for

no memory but that which you and Jack
have givaa me."
Mrs. Lat'urop kissed lier sweet flushed
face, thinking what a darling daughter shj
would be, and how Jack's life, and her
own, were blest in her dear lve.
Thsir wedding day dawned, dark and
forbidding. There had been a fearful storm

They were about to go out to the "best
roccx,n where theaiinb-'terwahed to kmake

and all eyes were turned toward the beach.
Beyond tho lino of breakers a ship was
haipisjsly beating about iu the storm.
JChtt assembled mrry makes rvsbelput
or tne cottage, turning wnite, startiea races
oward the awful scene, for they know that
rescue was hopeless.
One solitary figure remained on the deck
of the ill fated vessel. The Test, as wa3
afterward learae had entered ono of the
small beats, hours before, taking with them
provisions, and had left this man to his
fate, because he was sick and helpless in
his berth below.
Crawling to the upper deck of tho sink
ing vessel he had discovered land, and saw
that a line of ugly breakers tossed between
himself and safety.
Those hardy, storm beaten fishermen
realised in an instant the man's desperate
situation. There seemed to be no possible
hope for him. Who among them would
court almost certain death for the uncer
tain chance of saving a stranger's life?
The most they could do was to stand on
the shore and give him their sympathy un
til the ship went down.
How tall and straight he stood, distinctly
outlined against the heaving waters and
the angry sky beyond.
Seeming to realize the utter hopelessness
of his situation he folded his fever ema
ciated arms across his breast and waited for
Suddenly a cry from the bride's white
lips rang out over the turbulent waters.
She had recognized the man, and her
sleeping memory awoke, unrolling the pic
ture of the past before her startled vision.
teaching her white imploding hands
across the waters, heedless of all else save
the one doomed man, she cried out:
"Henry, Henry, come to me. Oh, my
darling, 1 cannot let you die."
In that moment .lack Lathrop know that
he, too, was doomed; that her awakened
memory could never sleep aciin. Ho had
road his heart's death scucsneo in her
white, agonized face; he saw it in her wide,
"Elsie," he said in a low, intense voice,
while his heart lay gasping in its death
agonies, "what is that man to you?"
"Forgive me, Jack," she sobbed, "I did
not know. I had forgotten. My past was
sure to coma back some time, and when it
did oh, Jack, he is all the world to me.
Bo not let him die."
She was kneeling on the beach, lifting
her clasped hands to him supplicatingly.
Stepping lower upon the beach Jack
Lathrop put his hand to his mouth and
shouted across tho waters:
"Courage, I will save you yet!"
Then turning he lifted Elsie from her
lowly position, his white, stern face soften
ing as ho did so, and said in tremulous
tones of entreaty:
"In another hour you would have been
my wife, Elsie. Give me one kiss. It is to
be the last. Ho will not care when he
She put her white arms about his neck,
"Oh, Jack, my moro than brother, for
give me, that I did not remember before."
With her kis3 it was only a! sister's kiss,
as he knew on his lips, he went to his
death, the brave, strong fellow, more pow
erful than any two of those stalwart fisher
men about him.
His white faced bride never knew Low
he reached the vessel's side, she saw only
the tall form on its deck; hor thoughts, her
prayers, were all for him who held her
heart in his keeping.
Presently a shout from those about her
proclaimed the fact that Jack had reached
tho vessel's side in safety, bearing with
him the stout rope which was to assist in
Having secured the rope about his rival'3
waist the two men began the difficult re
turn, Jack breasting the billows manfully
and supporting the nearly fainting man at
his side in his strong arms.
The men upon the shore drew in the
rope, breathing long, deep breaths, and
every breath .vas a prayer (for those fisher
men were not insensible to religious senti
ments) for the safety of those two men.
Nearer and nearer they come, and now
the pretty bride is on her knees again and
the billows dash their spray over iier. She
is supplicating wildly, but tho name on her
lips and in her heart is Henry, not Jack.
Now they have reached the beach and the
men wade out to meet them. A dozen
hands draw the exhausted stranger secured
to the rope out of the waters and a dozen
more reach for Jack. But whero is he, the
brave, noble fisherman, who, troading on
hi3 own heart, went out to save his rival?
They turn to congratulate him and lo,
he is gone!
He had seen his rival in safety, and then
was it design or accident? They never
knew. The waves with which he had bat
tled for his sweet bride's happiness bore
him out on their strong breast to the great,
boundless expanse of waters, and they
never looked upon his face again. Detroit
The Scilly Islanders.
A traveler who has visited tho Scilly
Isles says: "You bat e not bejn in Scilly
five minutes beforo you are struck with
the rjmarkable purity of tho English spok
en. Thore is no dialect, no provincialism;
every word is clearly enunciated, every
sentence is perfectly constructed, and a
Scillonian, no matter what his pobifcion,
can talk with you on any subject. They
are politicians, moral 'sts, philosophers and
practical men of business as well. Nothing
ih Scilly struck mo so much as the high
order of intelligence and vast general
knowledge of the inhabitants.
"The engineers on the steamboats, tho
man who rows you about the islands, tho
gardener at wark among his flowers, will
all converse with you on any general topic
you liki to start, and force 3'ou to admit
that, in tho art of talking, the result of
wide j-eading and intelligent observation,
in pure and olegant English, they have not
their equal in any part of the kingdom.
There is only one policeman for all the isl
andd, and he goes fishing or gardening all
tae week, and only puts his uniform on on
Sfcturday night. There is one island con
taining over 200 inhabitants, in which there
are only two men who are not total ab
st&iners, and only one man who smokes.
Tho islands appear to be very healthy, for
we are told that there is only ono doctor
for all the islands."

MRS. C. A. CREEVY TELLS HOW BAD
IT SOMETIMES IS.
By Way of Contrast SUo Then Describes
an Ideal Breakfast, Ono Which, a
Urumblinjr Husband Pronounced tho
Best He Had Ever Eaten.
Copyright by American Pres3 Association.
The Kichardsons are wealthy and hos
pitable. They give elegant dinners and
receptions, but their every day table is,
to say the least, queer. I know, for I
was their invited guest ono week. Our
dessert was invariably cut up oranges
and sugar. I have never wanted cut up
oranges and sugar since. But the break
fasts have left a la'ting impression on
my mind, especially has that of Sunday.
First we had a saucer of half cooked oat
meal, and very thin milk. Even the de
sire to be polite could not induce me to
eat mine. Then thore were chops and
jjlices of bi'own bread. The count was
accurate. Chops averaged ono apiece,
and none over; slices of bread one apieco
and one over. Presently Frank reached
for the one over srice of bread.
'Frank," said his mother reprovingly,
"leave one piece for Hannah."
"Why," said Frank, "can't I have all
the bread I want':"
But he couldn't, and, like myself, went
hungry to church.
This is fact, not fiction.
Doubtless breakfast is the meal that
suffers most from indifferent housekeep
ing, and many wives sigh for the conti
nental rolls and coffee in placo of the
substantial meal that custom and climate
demand of Americans.
Mrs. Plummer, a charming young
married woman, told me, with tears in
her eyes, that Tom had spoken his first
cross word to her dear Tom, who
vowed to love and cherish and the
honeymoon was dimmed and life was
dreary. Tom had said that tho break
fasts were only lit for a boarding house,
and he might as well not bo married.
Now, Tom was heartless, but his wife
did a bravo and good thing. She deter
mined to make a study of breakfasts and
rise above the level of a boarding house
keeper. So Ave talked it over and to
gether made a few purchases.
The next morning when Tom came
down to breakfast the tablo presented
an inviting appearance. It was covered
with a pretty red cloth. At each place
were a fruit plate, covered with a red
napkin, and finger bowl. On one side
of the plate lay a saucer and spoon; on
the other the white napkin, knife, fork,
salt bottle and butter plate. In the cen
ter of the table was a basket of Newtown
pippins, grape fruit and bananas. Tom
looked pleased. He was soon in the
middle of a crisp, mellow apple, giving
small pieces delicately pared to his wife.
"How do you eat these things?" said
Tom, holding up a grape fruit as big as
a baby's head.
"Cut through the middle, across tho
sections, and give me one half."
Tom did so.
"Now look," and Mrs. Flummer dex
terously removed the pulp with a spoon
into the saucer.
"You must not gt a seed or any of
the white part of tho rind into your
mouth. They are very bitter," con
tinued M rs. Plummor.
"We will have raw apples and grape
fruit or oranges ever- morning, Tom."
Tho grape fruit is a compromise be
tween a lemon and orange and deserves
to be a universal favorite.
Tom liked it. After cleansing their
fingers and wiping them on the red nap
kins, the fruit dish, applo parings and
all, were removed.
Tom took up his morning paper to
hide tho frown of disgust which tho
thought of half sodden oatmeal had in
voked. The girl entered with a dish of
"rolled wheat," and a red glass pitcher of
cream. "Only the tops of two bottles,"
exclaimed Mrs. Plummer. "The rest
of the milk is just as good for cooking."
This is the way Mrs. Plummer prepared
her wheat. A baked bean pot, as it was
called, had been purchased on the pre
vious day. At 3 in tho afternoon she
put two cups of wheat mixed with one
teaspoon of salt, and a quart and a pint
of boiling water into this pot. Without
covering or stirring it was placed in a
hot oven and baked several hours. It
was then taken out and allowed to cool.
In the morning after the fire was made
it was put back into the oven till wanted
for breakfast. Then, steaming hot, it
was lifted in solid lumps of sweet, ten
der kernels crowned with two inches of
starch or jelly into the dish for the
"Thi3 is tho nicest stuff I over ate,"
said Tom as ho passed his saucer for
tho third time. "Really, Milly, I don't
want much else to eat," added he.
"Don't ever feed mo upon oatmeal again;
it's a plebeian dish leside this."
"And o cheap, too," murmured Milly;
"only two and a half cents for all this."
The last course of this breakfast was a
small rolled omelet, cooked for one
minute on the griddle in the fat of bacon.
Four eggs well whipped, a little salt and
one-third of a cup of milk composed this
dish, which would havo been far less sa
vory cooked in tho usual way as one
large, fat omelet.
Tom ate his with a crisp slice of bacon
and bit of bread and butter, drank his
coffee, tlien going straight to Mill-, took
her in his arms, kissed her, and said:
"I'm sorry I was cross to you yester
day. Yon aro a- first rato housekeeper,
and the dearest little," etc.
I know the next time I eaw Mrs. Plum
mer that 'iove had returned.
A favorite dish of the Plummers is
fish hash. It is prepared by soaMng the
fish over night, boiling it in tho morn
ing with twice as much raw potatoes for
half un hour. The water :s then drained
off; butter, a nry pincu of summer sa
vory and a fsw dross w orceaerahire 1
sauce are added. It is then packed into
a frying pan with be" drippings and
browned slowly on the rsnge.
Mrs. Plununer bought a dozen earthen
EheEs and baked her eggs for breakfast.
This is her rule: ' Drop an egg into the
Ehell or saucer, sprinkle u little salt and
corer with a few finely grated bread
crumbs; put a piece of butter in the
middle and bake ten minute in a meat
pan with a ttttle water in it."
Oysters and the meat of lobsters can
be cooked in these shelis. Use a tea
spoon of oyster lienor with the oysters t
and a tablespoon of milk with lobster, j
Let the covering of bread crumbs bo (
thicKer than for eggs.
Once a week Mrs. Plummer has griddle
cakes, tender and light, made of sour
milk, soda, elt an4 flour. She gets
her maulo syrup -in galli cans.
Tom thinks tfeem a ecfficiendj hearty
breakfast without meat, after the
fruit and wheat courses. "Milly, yon
never have steaks, chops, rolls, ham and
eggs, nor fried potatoes for breakfast
nowadays," said Tom after several
weeks, "There is not the faintest flavor
of a boarding hcrusa breakfast about
ours. You don't cmtn have stews, nor
hash on toast' added ha enthusiastically.
"Whatever is left ovev I eat for my
luncheon when yen aro not at home,
Tom," was the answer.
