5 How She Rebukei
If anyone hail hiuteel to pretty Mat
tie Woolston that she would ever fig
ure as a heroine in a story she would
have opened her brown eyes wide in
amazement. She was the only child
of good old Dr. Woolston of Greyport,
a thriving village in. Connecticut, and
in the circle of village society was con
sidered at once a belle and an heiress.
Hair and eyes the color of a chestnut
when first the burr uncloses, a com
plexion as soft as satin and white as
milk, with the prettiest rose tint of
color on the round cheeks; white,even
teeth set in a pretty, smiling month,
and a figure tall, slight and graceful,
were the attractions in appearance of
the village beauty.
But those who knew Mattie Wool
ston well were wont to say that her
pretty face anti figure were the least
of her charms. She bad a low, musi
cal voice, a manner graceful and easy,
high-bred by intuition of what was
dignified and maicleuly; she was the
neatest housekeeper iu Greyport, and
all her tasteful dresses and hats were
the work of her own deft fingers. She
had read intelligently aud could con

almost divine when he preached with
an eloquence and simplicity rarely
combined. His earnest simplicity
vas the deepest, highest eloquence,
and men went from his church slowly
and thoughtfully, pondering upon
truths that were hut homely, every
day facts, but suddenly had been illu
minated by earnest eloquence into
God-ordained paths to salvatiou or
One of these men, young, wealthy
and full of talent, was Ned Gordon,
Mattie's ardeut admirer from boyhood.
He had left her in sobbing pain of
love to go to boarding school, had felt
his heart torn when college took him
again from Mattie and had become
more devoted than ever when he came
home "for good," to find her grown
to womanhood, fairer than ever.
? The minister had been wont to say
of Ned Gordon, when he considered
the subject at all, that he "was not a
bad fellow, as fellows go," being sim
ply an idle hanger-on to his father's
wealth, a desultory student of musty
law books when the mood seized him,
floating carelessly down life's stream,
doing no especial harm by the way,
but assuredly doing no good, either.
Of his personal responsibility in the
scheme of creation he had never
thought until Harvey Stillman came
to preside over the white church at
Greyport, where Ned's fine tenor was
quite a feature in the choir. It must
be confessed that, under the dull,
prosy teaching of Harvey Stillman's
predecessor, the choir seat had been
a gathering place for much flirtation
and mischief-making among the belles
and beaux of the village, and Ned's
ohief magnet was the certainty of sit
ting near Mattie and hearing her clear,
sweet soprano join his own voice.
Bat before Harvey Stillman had
been a month at Greyport Ned was un
easily conscious that many of his
words were as dagger thrusts at his
own aimless life, and, waking to this
consciousness, he also wakened to
another disagreeable fact, namely, that
Mattie was also realizing that life was
a more earnest,real thing than she had
before pictured it to herself.
She had never been a drone in the ,
live, but she had become more active
ly useful outside of her little home
world, visiting, in a quiet, unostenta
tious way, amongst the poorest of her
father's patients, doing good in an
humble spirit, but with a sincere de
sire to help, as far ns possible, those
who needed her gentle ministrations.
Ned loved her more than ever for
the gent?o self-denials she practised so
quietly that only those who were bene
fitted knew of them; bnt, to his greafc
dismay, there came a little gulf be
tween himself and his love, widening
80 gradually he could not tell where
it had commenced or would end.
For the first lime since he was a
mere boy he saw tbat Mattie gave him
only the warm friendship of years of
brotherly and sisterly intercourse,
where he had given the first and only
love of his life. She seemed drifting
from him, absorbed in her new duties
and leaving him but little^margin of
time for the recreations they had
shared for years. He was appalled by
the fear ol losing her, and yet she

kept him from telling ber either his
hopes or his fears.
"She thinks I am an idle, good-for

never got any chance to tell her how I

Some such pouderiug was in Ned's
mind M-hen, driving np the main street
of the village, he overtook Harvey
Stillman, going in the same direction.
He reined np at once.
"It you arc gang my way, Mr. Still
man," he said, "would you let me
drive you to your destiuatiou?"
"I am afraid I am going too far for
yon," was the reply. "I am on my
way to Hawsou's place."
"How fortunate I met you. It is
fully five miles. Get in and Black
r?solutions, till even h.s love Btory
came out in er.~rest word . J..a on
by the quietly oppressed oj.apathy in
his resolves to enter upon a noble and
more useful life, impetuous Ned, by a
mdden inspiration, said:
"If only Mattie contd know ho*v
mell it would help me to feel sure of
?er love! I cannot say if she ever
cared for me as I care for her, but if I
could be'ieve she would be my wife
when I deserved her it would stimu
late me as no other hope on earth
"Yon think she loves you?"
Harvey Stillman's very lips were
white as he asked the question.
"I did think so once. Now I would
give all I own to be sure of it."
There was much more to the same
purpose, till Ned, with a sudden gleam
of hope, asked the minister to plead
"No one has as much influence as
yon have. She looks up to you as to
a fathler," said Ned, never seeing how
his listener winced at the comparison;
"and if you were to tell her how her
love would aid rae she might believe
I do not always mean tj be the idler
she has known."
"I will see her," was the grave re
ply. "If she loves you she shall have
the happiness of giving you the en
couragement yon desire."
But when the drive was over and the
minister entered his study the quiet
gravity of his face broke up into an
expression of keenest suffering. He
had borne many sorrows iu his life.
Death had taken his nearest and dear
est; poverty had laid lier heavy hand
upou him; temptations had assailed
him, only driven back by prayerful
struggles. He Lad hoped to find in.
Greyport rest, after a long battle in
life. His salary promised him an easy
competence and some leisure for stud
ies he loved, without neglect of his
higher duties. But before he had
been in his new home many weeks
Mattie Woolston's sweet, earnest face,
her goodness, her unobtrusive,sincere
piety had awakened in his heart an
emotion he had never hoped to experi
ence. Love had been a far-off possi
bility for happier lives, and he bad not
realized that, it was seeking entrance
into his own till Ned Gordon roused
him to the consciousness of what his
deep interest in Mattie signified.
He loved her and he had undertaken
to plead the cause of another to her!
Thought became such torture that he
resolved to have the dreaded interview
over, to know the worst at once.- He
found Mattie in the parlor of her
father's handsome house, and, fearing
for his own strength, told his errand
The girl looked at bim with white
cheeks and a startled expression, as if
she had received a sudden,unexpected
blow where she had looked for kind
ness. Her great brown eyes had a
hunted, piteous look that it went to
his heart to see. She struggled for
composure before she trusted her
voice to speak, and it was low and
tremulous when she said:
"Since you are Mr. Gordon's am
bassador, tell him from me that he has
my most sincere good wishes for his
success in his new life. He .as no
warmer friend, no more earn t well
wisher than myself. But I c never
be his wife. I do not love. him. "We
have been like brother and sister from
childhood, and I can give him my sis
terly affection, nothing more."
"I think he ?B sincere in bis resolu
tion to make his life more earnest and
useful than it has ever been," Harvey
Stillman said, his own pain urging him
still to plead Ned's cftnsei
"I hope he will persevere in his re*
Solve; He mav make a noble man.1'
"But his love-"
"I can never return," she said, reso
lutely. "Piay leave me now. I-I
am not well."
He left her. Ooly a few feet from
the door he tnrned and retraced his
steps. He had satisfied his conscience;
had pleaded the cause of 1he younger,
handsomer man, wko:,e pleasure
money probably doubled and trebled
his own entire income. Faithfully he
had placed before Mattie all Ned's
pleadings, all her inCuence might do
for him, and he had won only a steady
refusal of the snit he urged.
Now he would risk his own fate.
But at the dour bc paused, for Mattie
had thrown herself in a deep.armcbair,
and with her face hidden -was sobbing
with a perfect passion of grief.
Was it for Ned? Did she already
repent her decision? Irresoluto
whether to retreat or advance, Harvey
stood in the doorway till Mattie,
neither seeing nor hearing him, felt
she was not aione and looked up.
In a moment she was on her feet, and
for the first time the minister saw her
eyes flash with anger.
"Why do you como back?" she said.
"Have you not sullicieutly humiliated
"I?" he cried. "I humiliate you!"
"What else is it to come to mc to
plead Ned Gordon's love! Is he an
idiot that he cannot speak himself,but
mu6t make my name a byword by-prat
ing of his love to every stranger?"
"Miss Woolston, you misjudge him
and me-me most of ad, if you imag
ine I desire to humiliate you-I, who
honor you above ail other women-I,
who came, teariug my own heart, to
plead against it for your happiness.
Do not judge me harshly, Mattie, for
my love's sake!"
She had so visibly brightened as he
spoke, such soft, dewy happiness rested
in the brown eyes, such tremulous
smiles gathered around the small
mouth that Harvey Stillman felt his
own heart swell with rapture.
"Mattie," he cried, "I am poor,
many years older than you are, and
vet I love yon with all the strength of
"And I love you!"
Simply as a child she told the truth
of her own heart. He was not a mau
for auy outburst of rapture. Tender
ly he folded her in his arms, saying
"Thank God, darling!"
Nobody but Mattie aud her betrothed
knew why Ned Gordon resolved to
continue his studies in Now York in
stead of remaining with his father at
Greyport; but year? later, when he
came back to the little village to take

changes and progress have been mado
in yachting. Everyone who reads the
papers knows of the discussions whick
have gone on for years as to the com

ordinary yacht construction it is
firmly attached to the outside
of the mainmast, as shown in the

place by what are known as shrouds,
long, heavy wire ropes (10 and ll),
which run from the "hounds" at the
top of the mainmast and from the top
of the topmast to each side of the
hull, where they are firmly attached.
In order to further strengthen the
topmast a crosstree (9) is placed at
the head of the topmast for spreading
the topmast shrouds. It was the
breaking of this spreader which oansed

tie skill of a yachtman is based largely
i his ability to let out or take in
ese sheets, thereby giving the sail
ore or less wind. The speed of the
loht is dependent very largely upon \
e exactness with which the mainsail
managed. If the wind is behind
te boat the sheet will, of course, be
ised out until tho mainsail stands at
wide angle with the length of the
>at, thereby exposing as much sur- '
ce as possible. In sailing into the
ind or "by the wind," as the old ?
