I turned tlio musio while sho sang
Hor ballads sentimental;
How sweet the notes around mo range I
Her voice ah, mo I how gentle.
She looked up at me now and then
And smiled so very sweetly,
That woll, I was like other men
I lost ray heart completely.
1 1 lovo but thee" she sanpr and gazed
At mo In rapt devotion;
While I, I turned tho leaves, too dazed
To feel my heart's commotion.
' Come tly with me,1' "Love is enough,"
Such were the ballads1 titles,
Like gem proposals in tho rough
To mo wero theso recitals.
I hold ray pcaco until one night
Ono moonlit night of summer
Sho sang "Bo miuo. ray heart's delight,'
And catching these words from her,
I bent and kissed her check and said
Something I don't remember;
That settled it, and wo shall wed,
So sho sars in September.
BY FATIt M.VDOC.
From tho Argosy.
In an old manor-house, within a long day's
ride from Naseby, there is a certain stately
apartment known as tho great hall, which is
lighted by large windows to tho south, and
around three sides of which runs a gallery,
reached from the southeast corner by a flight
of a dozen 6teps. In this gallery hangs a pic
ture of a young and beautiful woman, attired
in the costume of the Stuart period. A gican
tic clock, whose pendulum is inclosed in a
huge wooden case, still stands below the
west gallery, and, in front of this clock, if the
inquisitive visitor should chance to raise the
carpet, he would see a dark stain upon tho
boards beneath, andhe would be told that this
stain is a stain of blood, and his Informant,
pointing to the picture, which hangs exactly
opposite, would say that this picture is the por
trait of Mistress Anne Pane, and would add,
with lowered voice, that the blood stain and
Mistress Anne were not remotely connected.
How it came to pass that so lovely and gentle a
lady became associated with a bloody deed it is
now my purpose to relate.
On a June afternoon, in the year 1645, the
great hall of Fane Place was occupied by two
persons. Tho windows were carefully shut
tered, and only a small crack was left open to
admit light. The door was closed. On the
table were spread viands, mil a gentleman, in
the dress of a cavalier, was hastily partaking of
refreshment. His companion a young woman
of singularly prepossessing appearance minis
tered deftly to his wants, laying her finger on
her lips when he attempted to speak.
"Hushl" she said softly. "Eat, Master
Quivil, while thou canst. Who knows what
may happen next ? My brother Toby watches,
and ho may bring us news of pursuit at any
He ate and drank, therefore, at her command.
But when ho had satisfied his hunger Master
Quivil rose and stood before her, with longing
words trembling upon his lips. He was young
not more, certainly, than five-and-twenty and
handsome, with a winning smile and bright
eyes. She was perhaps three years his junior,
and as beautiful as a morn in May. There
were, indeed, some who sighed that thero was
no court where Mistress Anno Fane might have
displayed her charms and won the heart of some
great noblo by her beauty and her grace. But
there was no court now, and tho King was in
Borrow, and Mistress Anne's Mechlin lace was
sold, and her mother's jewels pawned, and sho
herself had donned a sad-colored robe and her
countenance was careworn. Nevertheless, tho
fugitive from Naseby thought that she was the
most exquisite sight that he had ever seen, and
his eyes dwelt tenderly upon her face.
"How can I thank thee enough ?" he began
"I came hero friendless and thou hast succored
me. I found thee alone thy father dead thy
elder brother far away nobody to defend thee
hut a lad of fifteen and a dotard servant. And
jet thou hast received me fed me enter
tained me "
- "Hush!" sho interrupted. "Thou lightest in
a good cause, and I would die for such. I did
it for tho KInc."
"For tho King only ?" ho said.
"I did it for tho King," she repeated, blush
ing. "But do not tarry, Master Quivil. I
pray thee go, for I cannot conceal theo here.
Even our lumber-room6 are bare, and not tho
veriest mouse could shelter hero in safety."
Tho great hall was, in truth, almost denuded
pf furniture. Tho pictures In tho gallery had
gone. Tho books had been taken from the
shelves. Scarce aught remained but a table and
some chairs, a settee by tho hearth, and the
clock, whose enormous white face seemed to
staro menacingly at the two young people, and
whose sonorous ticking seemed to warn them
that time sped away, and that even now tho
feet of tho pursuer might be upon tho thresh
old. Mistress Annie heard it and made a fresh
effort to despatch her guest.
"Master Quivil, I pray thee to go,' ' she said
again, " 'Tis beyond my power to conceal thee
"I will, I Willi" he cried, "But, first, oh,
Mistress Anne, should I not wait till sun
down ? I cannot fly in open day. 'Tis little
more than 4 by the clock"
She followed his gaze to tho clock's face and
"Mistress, I will depart at sundown. Until
then my flight would command an easy capture.
Harbor mo for these few hours, sweet mi6trees,
and I will bo gone. Thou knowebt not what
theso few hours are to me. But hast thou for
gotten our childish days ? Ha6t thou forgotten
when we played together ? That was a dear
and precious time, when the summers seemed
eternal, and peaco seemed to be everywhere,
and we little dreamod of coming care and future

separation. 1 was but a lad and thou a little
maid, aud yet, mistress, I called theo sweetheart.
Do6t thou recall ?"
She did recall, and her pale cheek was
flushed with a bright pink as ho spoke. But
she did tiot reply. Instead, sho averted her
oyos, aud after a momeut ho continued speaktug.
"Ig.ive ihceonco a rose," he said. "Dost
remembor? 'Twas June, a Juuo o long ago
that it seems like a dream. Wo walked together
in tho rose-eardeti. I mind we had escaped
from Henry Dowdeswcll, aud left him sulking.
And I plucked a rose and said, 'Take it, Nan;
take it as a pledge from tho unformed boy that
the gallant man shall return to woo thee.' And
thou took'st it, sweetheart, with a toar elistcniug
in thy pretty ecs, and thou didst promtso to
dry its petals and fold them amoug thy raiment,
and keep them till I came back to provo my gal
lantry aud to win thee. Alas, Nan, I'havo
como back. But my gallantry is unproved,
for the day is lost, and I have fled, and how
can I hope that thou wilt smile upon mo now ?"
He caught her hand and kissed it.
"Ah, Master Quivil "
"Wilt not call mo Jack, sweet love ? Dear
heart, I como to thee scarred aud luckless. I
daro not offer theo my empty hand. But send
mo not away comfortless."
"Dear Jack," sho murmured, blushing,
"thou hast ever been in my heart."
He caught her to him.
"And it happier days should come, Nan,
sweet Nan, when my hand holds a triumphant
sword, and when the King marches proudly to
London, and when the gay court gathers again,
gayer aud statelier than before, say, Nan, wilt
thou tako my happy hand and suffer mo to lead
theo to that bright court, which thou wilt
brighten aud adorn as a diamond brightens and
adorus tho crown ?"
"Oh, Jack, thou spcakest too kindly."
"Nay, mistress, I am thy humble servant.
But wouldst thou thus glorify my poor lifo ?"
"Oh, Jack; dear Jack."
But oven as he pressed her to his breast
something passing tho window outsido for a
momeut obscured the oue ray of light which
streamed through the 6hutter that had been
left ajar. Theghl started vioientlv and with
drew from her lover's embrace.
"What was that?" she whispered fearfully.
"Nothing, my queen," ho said reassuringly.
"Nay, nay, Jack; 6omo ono passed. DTdst
not see the shadow?"
" 'Twas old Diggon, mayhap, or thy brother
"No, uo," she 6aid in terror. "Diggouis in
the field, and Toby watches from tho road.
This is some one who has alighted at the postern
gate, and who comes through tho garden."
"Then It is some one who knows the house
well, dear love a friend, belike."
"Nay. There is no one. Young Master
Dowdeswcll alone hath como hither, over and
again. But ho Is a traitor, and hath come hero
spying tho land. And oh, Jack, if ho should
come again, he comes as thy enemy. Was he at
"He was, Nan. I saw the prickeared rogue."
"It may be he. Oh, Jack, Jack !"
Whether it was Master Dowdeswell or not, it
was clear that it was some ono who was ac
quainted with the ways of Fane Place. For in
another moment the sound was heard as of a
handle being turned, and then the heavy tread
oi ono who crosseo. tne outer vestibule and
drew near to the door of the great hall. Anne
clasped her lovers arm convulsively.
"My own love, thou must escape," she
80hbid "Through the window? No, no I
Ho will have placed a watch. In the gallery?
Alas, uot a mouse could shelter there 1"
She looked around wildly. The footsteps
drew yet nearer. Suddenly her eyes lighted on
the clock's face.
"Tho clock, tho clock 1" she cried in a stifled
Throwing open the case and holding aside
the pendulum, she motioned to Quivil to get
within. He obeyed hor Instantly and without
a word. She closed the case upon him, and, as
6he turned away, the door of the apartment
opened and a loud and stern voice demanded
Before ehe had time either for welcome or de
nial tho speaker entered. Ho was a tall and sol
dierly man, wantingyet several years of thirty
a man whose countenanco had acquired the
sour expression cultivated by the Roundheads,
but was not naturally ill-favored. Ho looked
suspiciously round the room as ho came in, and
finally doffed his beaver to a lady.
"Good-day, Mistress Anno," he said.
"Good-day, Master Dowdeswell," 6ho re
turned. " I come upon business," ho announced. "I
have a search-warrant to ransack thy house. I
seek tho body of Master John Quivil. He is
supposed to bo In hiding hero or hereabouts,
and I "
He paused, but sho did not speak.
"I came this way," ho went on, after a
moment. "I thought, madam, it might bo
more agreeable that a friend should search tho
house than a stranger."
"'Twas kindly done, Master Dowdeswell."
"Nay, madam. Duty is rarely kind, and I
havo strictly fulfilled my duty, and have cut
off every avenue of escape from this house by
entering myself through tho postern-gate while
directing my men to follow the public path. I
am not kind. But I havo been reminded to
make the search as little painful to theo as pos
sible. Is tho traitor John Quivil hidden here ?"
"Thero is no traitor here," returned Anno
Dowdeswell smiled grimly.
"Mistress Anne, thou know'st what I mean,"
he said. "Thine Is a wilful misapprehension.
I aBk again: Doth the body of tho traitor John
Quivil Ho here concealed?"
"I conceal no traitors, Master Dowdeswell."
"But dost thou conceal the body of John
For a moment sho could not answer, and
Dowdeswell smiled again. "I percoivo that
thou hast lately eaten," he said. Then, glan
cing at tho clock;
"Half-past four! 'Tis marvelous strange
that thou should'6t dine or sup at such an
"Tho times are 6trange, Master Dowdeswell,
and wo do strange things in strange times."
"Ayo, mistress. Even to tho harboring of
traitors. Who, I desire thee to tell mo, who
hath broken bread in this place? But nay.
Answer mo not. Covoi not thy malignancv
with falsehood. Thou hast a traitor here and
I will drag him forth."
Then, striding to the door, ho shouted to his
underlings, who had just reached tho front en
trance of the house. Bidding them search tho
mansion and the out-houses, lie seated himself
at tho table, laying a pair of pistols upon it.
Anno still stood, with her hands clasped, In
front of tho great clock, whoso hands pointed
to half-past four. It seemed to her that she
daro not move from this position. She fancied
that Quivil's breathing was audible, and she
feared lest DowdeBwell should approach his
hiding-place too near.
"Wilt thou not bo seated, mistress ?" asked
Dowdeswell presently in a gentler tone.
"I do not sit with the King's enemies," sho
"Ah, mistress, reproach mo not," ho pro
tested. "Time was when Henry Dowdeswell
could win a emtio from fair Slistress Anno
"That, sir, was when MaBter nenry Dowdes

"It hath beat oyer true, Mistress Anne, and
never truer than now. Didst suppose that

"Master Dowdeswell l"
"Listen, Mistress Anno. Dost forgot all tho
days of youth all tho games that wo twain
played together all our intercourse, sweet and
bitter by turns nil tho jealousies and rivalries
between your humblo servant and Jack Quivil ?
I never liked tho lad. But 1 forbore to cuff ono
upon whom my mistress smiled. Thou didst
not often smllo upon me, Mistress Auno. Yet
thero wero times when thou cnll'dst mo Honry,
and when thy .hand would clasp mine as wo

and when thy thauks camo prottlly if I brought

"Ayo. 1 boar in mind tho goodness of yoro.
But Master Henry Dowdeswell wns then a loyal
subject of tho King."
"Charles Stunrt, lady, was thou a loyal King
unto his subjects."
"Tut, tut, sir. Ills most sacred Majesty can
do no wrong."
"Mistress, wn will not arguo that. Spoak

"Ayo. And becauso "
"Not becauso thou lov'st another ? Say not

Ho looked at her gravely.
"Mistress, is it all forgot?" ho said, abid

"I do speak tho truth, sir."

me lest I drag theo to the seat of justice

Sho was almost at her wits' end. But sho held
"How knowest thou that Master Quivil was
at tho ill-fated field of Naseby ?" sho asked.
"How knew I? Because I saw him, madam
saw him in tho rear company of the man Charles
Stuart, whom thou callest King. I saw him,
and I knowthathi! fledin thisdirection. Madam,

Yield him up."
"Wero it in my power, Master Dowdeswell,
never would I yield him up ! The King's leal
servants are my true friends, and I deliver no
faithful friend to a cruel foe."
"Becauso thou lovest him, mistress ?"
"Not so. Becauso 1 lovo the King."
Dowdeswell gavo a short laugh.
" 'Tis a woman's wile," he said. "Tho traitor
is hero, madam; thou hast as good as admitted
his presence. I must away with thee to tho
seat of judgment. We will see if a moro
powerful hand than mine can force confession
But he did not order her to prepare herself to
depart. Ho stood looking at her with blazing
"Vain and trifling woman I" ho burst forth at
length. "Thinkest thou to dissemble with me ?

He paused for a moment. Then ho pro
ceeded more gently.
"Woman, If thou hast aconscience. confess
thy sin," ho said. "Thou lovest; 'tis pity, for
thou lovest an ill man. But let not thy love
destroy thy conscience. 'Tis truth that I bid
theo speak. Do thou thy duty and tell mo this

"No, Master Dowdeswell," said Anne, with
dignity. "Tako mo away and immuromo in
tho vilest of dungeons. But for my love's
sake and for my conscience sake, I will reveal
"But wilt not love me, Nan ?"
He was deeply mortified. Tho perspiration
stood upon his brow, and his heart was hot
within him. Ho looked at hor again. Then,
with an unpremeditated gesture ho raised his
oyos to the clock-face above her head. Some
thing in its aspect struck him strangely.
"Half-past four I" ho exclaimed. "Half-pa6t

"Strange that it should stop even as I en

"Nay," sho said quickly. "Why set it going
for naught, since thou aro going to tako mo to

"That would bo indeed an unkind measure,"
said ho. "Even if thou bo taken bonce, should

But ho never looks at tho clock. And our

"Nevertheless, I will set tho clock," said
And putting her aside he flung tho clock

Dowdeswoll to stay his movements.
"Hold 1" sho cried imperatively. "See hero,

Sho began to count, leaning over tho balus
trade, with tho pistol pressed against her breast
aud hor finger on tho trigger, and with her oyos
fixed upon tho two men. They dared not stir.
Tho determination in her eyes held them spell
bound. "One," sho began.
"Stop, Nan, stop !" entreated Quivil. "Lot
mo go with him ! I caro naught. Stop, dear
love, stop counting, and tako that pistol from
thy breaBt. Como down, I adjure theo !"
"Two," sho proceeded slowly. "Three "
"Mistress Anne, I cannot do tho thing I

deadly instrument from thy breast!" implored
"Four," sho went on. "Five six "
"Nan, thou nrt killing mo I I caro not a jot

"Nan, my llttlo Nan, think that man who

"Nan, sweot soul, forbear !"
"Nan, In God's name, ceaso 1"
"For love's sake !" cried Quivil, pointing his
pi6tol at his own breast.
"For conscience !" exclaimed Dowdeswell,
seizing tho pistol which still lay upon tho table
and thrusting it against his head.
Simultaneously the two men fired.
It was a mechanical cry. Anno dropped tho
pistol from her hand and rushed down tho
steps, and as sho reached tho bottom Dowdes
woll's troopers hurried into tho room. But tho
Cavalier and tho Roundhead who had loved
Mistress Anne so well lay dead, and above them
stood the silent clock pointing to half-past four.
MUST THE LOVE STORY GO?
Statistics Seoul to Snotv Wo Are Getting
Too Much of It.
Notes and Queries.
Mr. Andrew Lang, In tho February number
of Longman1! Magazine, computes that in the
course of a single year tho English people aro
presented with something like eight thousand
studies of tho passion of love. Tho figures aro
high, but, as publishers veryVoll know, thoy
might easily bo much higher. But taking only
such novels as are printed, wo seo that in ton
years English writers of fiction produce eighty
thousand studies in the art of making lovo.
This Implies ono of two things: either that tho
latter-day novelist is Incredibly ingenious, or
that lovo is introduced as a mere convention,
and is therefore without novelty and without
freshness. Mr. Lang would seem to incline to
tho last view. Ho believes that most of our
modern novelists would suffer nothing in inter
est by ceasing entirely to bo amorists. Their
lovo scenes aro not tho vital parts of their
books, becauso thoir lovers aro rarelv in earnest.
Tho simploprimitlvofalth of tho early romancers
is wanting. Culture has damaged imaginative
belief. Perhaps Action stands in need of re-,
modeling. Tho experiment of eliminating tho
lovo olementwould not bo aparticularly hazard
ous one, and might bo made. Strong novelists
succeed not by virtuo of tho love in their stories,
but often in spite of it; and to weak novelists it
affords perilous opportunities of indulging to
excess in a maudlin sentimentality.
Nature's True Tonic. .
Ladles' Homo Journal.
One of tho advantages of light gymnastics is
that the sick and convalescent can make what
appears to bo trifling efforts, and by them, in
time, bo restored to actiyo health. If too fcobio
to bo practically able to make but llttlo exer
tion, try what aro known as deep-breathing
movements. Lie flat upon tho back, tako as
long and as deep breaths as possible, and while
tho mouth is closed slowly throw tho arms un
in front and then at tho sides. Rest for ten
minutes. Try again tho eamo inhalation and
exhalation of air, the latter being pure and
fresh. After awhile attempt tho same, sitting
up. Theso oxercises can safely bo taken by
tho sick oue every day, several times, and the
whole muscular system will be improved, just
as if some revivifying tonic had been given, a
far better one than any charged with alcohol or
some liko stimulant.
