Half hidden lies earth sere seamed face
Beneath a shower of scattered leaves.

Spring blossoms nursed by summer rays

BEYOND THE PALE.
A man should, whatever happens, keep
to his own caste, race and breed. Let the
white go to the white and the black to the
black. Then, whatever trouble falls is in
the ordinary course of things neither
uudden, alien nor unexpected.
This is the story of a man who willfully
stepped bejond the safe limits of decent
every day society, and paid for it heavily.
He knew too much in the first instance,
and he saw too much in the second. He
took too deep an interest in native life, but
he will never do so again.
Deep away in the heart of the city, be
hind Jitha Megji's bustee, lies Amir Nath's
gully, which ends in a dead wall pierced
by one grated window. At the head of the
gully is a big cowbyre, and the walls on
cither bide of the gully are without win
dows. Neither Suchet Singh nor Gaur
Chand approve of their women folk look
ing into the world. If Durga Charan had
been of their opinion he would have been
a happier man today, and little Bisesa
would have been able to knead her own
bread. Her room looked out through tho
grated window into tho narrow, dark
gully, where thesun never came and where
the buffaloes wallowed in the blue slime.
She was a widow, about 15 years old, and
she prayed the gods day and night to send
her a lover, for she did not approve of liv
One day the man Trejago his name was
came into Amir Nath's gully on an aim
less wandering, and after he had passed
the buffaloes stumbled over a big heap of
Then ho saw that the gully ended in a
trap, and heard a little laugh from behind
the grated window. It was a pretty little
laugh, and Trejago, knowing that, for all
practical purposes, the old Arabian Nights
are good guides, went forward to the win
dow and whispered that verse of "The
Love Song of Har Dyal" which begins:
Can a man stand upright In the face of the
naked bun; or a lover in the presence of his be
loved' If my feet fail mo, O heart of my heart, am I to
blame, being blinded by tho glimpse of your
There came the faint tchinks of a wom
an's bracelets from behind the grating, and
a little voice went on with tho song at tho
Alas! alas I can the moon tell the Lotus of her
Ioo when tho gato of heaven is shut and the
clouds gather for the rains?
They bae taken my oeloved, and driven her
with tha pack horses to tho north.
There are iron chains on tho feet that were set
on my heart.
Call to tho bowmen to make ready
The voice stopped suddenly, and Trejago
walked out of Amir Nath's gully wonder
ing who in tho world could have capped
"The Love Song of Har Dyal" so neatly.
Next morning as he was driving to offico
an old woman threw a packet into his dog
cart. In the packet was the half of a
broken glass baugle, one ilower of the blood
red dhak. a pinch of bhusa or cattle food
and eleven cardamoms. That packet w as a
letter not a cluinsy, compromising letter,
but an innocent, unintelligible lover's
Trejago knew far too much about these
things, as I have said. No Englishman
should bo able to translate object letters.
But Trejago spread all tho trifles on the
lid of his office box and began to puzzlo
A broken glass bangle stands for a Hin
doo widow all India over; because, when
her husband dies, a womau's bracelets are
broken on her wrists. Trejago saw the
meaning of the little bit of the glass. The
fiower of the dhak means diversely "de
sire," "come," "write," or "danger," ac
cording to the other things with it. Ono
enrdamon means "jealousy;" but when
any article is duplicated in an object letter
it loses its symbolic meaning and stands
merely for one of a number indicating
time, or, if incense, curds, or if saffron be
Mint also, place. The message ran then:
"A widow dhak flower and bhusa at 11
o'clock." The pinch of bhusa enlightened
Trejago. He saw this kind of letter
leaves much to instinctive knowledge
that the bhusa referred to the big heap of
cattle food over which ho had fallen in
Amir Nath's gully, and that the message
must come from the person behind tho
grating, she lieing a widow. So the mes
sage rau then, "A widow, in the gully in
which is the heap of bhusa, desires you to
come at 11 o'clock."
Trejago threw all the rubbish into the
fireplace and laughed. He knew that tho
men in the east do not make love under
windows at 11 in the forenoon, nor do
women fix appointments a week in ad
vance. So he went that very night at 11
into Amir Nath's gully clad in a boorka,
which clonks a man as well as a woman
Directly the gongs in the city made the
hour the little -oicc behind the grating
took up "The Love Song of Har Dyal" at
the verse where the Panthan girl calls
upon Har Dyal to return. The song is
really pretty in the vernacular. In English
3 ou miss the wail of it. It runs something
Alone upon the housetops to the north
I turn and watch the lightning n the sky;
The friumor of tay footsteps in the north.
Come back to me, beloved, or I die:
BoJow my feet the still bazar is laid.
Far, far below the w ear camels lie.
The camel, and the captu es of thy raid;
Come back to me, Ixioved, or 1 dies
2!y father's wife is oW and harsh with years,
And drudge of all my father's house am I;
My bread fc, sorrow and my drink u, tears;
Come back to me, beloved, or I die!
As the song stopped Trejago stepped up
under the grating and whispered; "I am
Bisesa was good to loak upon.
That night waa the beginning of many
strange things, and of a double life so wild
chat Trejago today sometimes wonders if
it were not all a dream. Bia or her old
handmaiden, w ho had thrown the object
etter, had detxehad th heavy prating from
he brickwork of the wall; v that the
window slid inside, leaving only a square
if raw masonry into which an active man

ois routine or omco wor, or put oa nis

the &tatioi, wen irnng how long they

Bisesa. ' , '" "' tue citv wis
still, camo the walk uader the evil smell
ing boorka, toe pntroi through Jftha
Megji's bustee, the quick turn into Amir
Naths' gully between the sleeping cattle
and the dead walla, and then, last of all,
Bisesa, and the deep, even breathing of the
old woman who slept outside the door of
the bare little room that Durga Charan
allotted to his sister's daughter. Who or
what Durga Charan was Trejago never in
quired; and why in the world ho was not
discovered and knifed never occurred to
him till his madness was ever, and Bisesa.
But this comes later.
Bisesa was an endless delight to Trejago.
She was as ignorant as a bird, and her dis
torted versions of the rumors from the out
side world that had reached her in her
room amused Trejago almost a much as
her lisping attempts to pronounce his
name, "Christopher." The first syllable
was always more than sho coule manage,
and she made funny little geatuies with
her roseleaf hands, as one throwing the
name away, and then kneeling before Tre
jago, asked him, exactly as an English
w oman would do, if he were sure lie loved
her. Trejago swore that he loved her more
than any one else in the vvoild. Which
After a month of this folly the exigen
cies of his other life compelled Trejago to
be especially attentive to a lady of his ac
quaintance. You may take it for a fact
that anything of this kind is not only no
ticed and discussed by a man's own race
but by some hundred and fifty natives as
well. Trejago had to walk with thi3 lady
and talk to her at the kind stand, and
once or twice to drive with her, never for
an instant dreaming that thi3 would affect
his dearer out-of-the-way life. But tho
news flew in the usual mysterious fash
ion from mouth to mouth, till Bisesa's
duenna heard of it and told Bisesa. The
child was so troubled that sho did the
hcusehold work evilly, and was beaten by
Durga Charan's wife in consequence.
A week later Bisesa taxed Trejago with
the flirtation. She understood no grada
tions and spoke openly. Trejago laughed
and Bisesa stamped her little feet little
feet, light as marigold flowers, that could
lie in the palm of a man's one hand.
Much that is written about "oriental
passion and impulsiveness" is exaggerated
and compiled at second hand, but a little
of it is true; and when an Englishman
finds that little it is quite as startling as
any passion in his own proper life. Bisesa
raged and stormed, and finally threatened
to kill herself if Trejago did not at once
drop the alien Memsahib who had come
between them. Trejago tried to explain,
and to show her that she did not under
stand these things from a western stand
point. Bisesa drew herself up and said
"1 do not. I know only this it is not
good that I should have made you dearer
than my own heart to me, Sahib. You are
an Englishman. I am only a black girl"
she was fairer than bar gold in tho mint
"and the widow of a black man."
Then she sobbed and said: "But on my
soul and my mother's soul, I love you.
Thero shall no harm come to you, what
ever happens to me."
Trejago argued with the child, and tried
to soothe her, but she seemed quite unrea
sonably disturbed. Nothing would satisfy
her save that all relations between them
should end. Ho was to go away at once.
And he went. Ashediopped out at the
window she kissed his forehead twice,
and he walked home wondering.
A week and then thiee weeks passed
without a sign from Bisesa. Trejago,
thinking that the rupture had lasted quite
long enough, went down to Amir Nath's
gully for the fifth time in the three weeks,
hoping that his rap at the sill of the shift
ing grating would be answered. He was
There was a young moon, and one stream
cf light fell down into Amir Nath's gully
and struck the grating w Inch was drawn
away as he knocked. Fi om the black dark
Bisesa held out her anus into the moon
light. Both hands had been cut off at the
wiists, and the stumps weie nearly healed.
Then, as Bisesa bowed her head between
her arms and sobbed, some one in the room
grunted like a wild beast, and something
sharp knife, sword or spear thrust at
Trejago in his boorka. The stroke missed
his body, but cut into ono of the muscles
of the groin, and ho limped jjightly from
the wound for the rest of his dajt,.
The grating went into its place. There
was no sign whatever from inside the
house nothing but the moonlight strip on
the high wall and the blackness of Amir
Path's gully behind.
The next thing Trejago remembers, after
raging and shouting like a madman be
tween those pitiless walls, is taat he found
himself near the river as the dawn was
breaking, threw away his boorka and went

Mothers, don't so. 1. You can be firm
without scolding your children; you can
reprove them for their faults; you can pun
ish them when necessary, but don't get
into the habit of perpetually scolding them.
It does them no good. They soon become
so accustomed to fault finding and scold
ing that they pay no attention to it. Or,
which often happens, they grow haidened
and reckless in consequence of it.
Many a naturally good disposition is
ruined by constant scolding, and many a
child is driven to seek evil associates be
cause there is no peace at home. Mothers,
with their many cares and perplexities,
often fall into the habit unconsciously;
but it is a sad habit for them and their

Hats for Children.
Do not be persuaded into buying an over
trimmed hat for the baby boy or girl, for
though a milliner may attempt to con
vince you that white feathers on white
hats for small people are greatly admired,
you may conclude that the stock is as bad
as the milliner's taste. Large felt hjits
brown, blue, olive or black trimmed with
rosettes of ribbon, are all worn by the chil
dren of the rich woman who is endeavor
ing to set the fashion of good taste.
Who slaves and labors to get a lace slip
for the baby to be worn over the satin
gown? The wife of the laborer. Who
dresses her child in ditrk flannel or merino,
puts on it a large hat that shades its face,
and shoes in which it can walk The wife
