My friend and I had decided on
remaining a few weeks at Clover
nook, where the fishing was ex

pecially refreshing after the beat
and dust of New York. 'But

'Even unto the end " he laugh

to smoke ou the loulige in the
leasant south bed-ioom. Mrs.
Gray was an old friend of my
mother, and had removed to Clo
vernook in Annie's infancy, when,
as widow and scarcely twenty,
she met sorrow and reverses with
noble heroism. She was devoted
to this only child, whom she had

'1ut she tried his fuith and re

tender grave key so irresistible to
girl or womnan. Even I coull not
be i;nsenlsible to the strange m.a

made me shudder, when I saw him
draw a ehair near the open piano.
Well. I do not think that he
proved faithful to either Isaae
Walton or Cigars, but grew quite
satisfied with the old-fasbionedI
little village: indeed, he informed
me that he would wait my arrival,
though he knew that I would be
detained two weeks in New York.
But three weeks fond me sti!l
in the city. and then I returned
to Clovernook, bearing with me a
letter to Col. Huntington, with the
Paris post-mark. It was twilight
when I waiked up the pietty
avenue that led to the cottage. and
there, by the stuone steps that led
to the broad piazza, I found him
sitting beside Annie Grey.
'There is a letter, Harry, which
I think will decide your plans. for

A frown darkened his handsome
ace and lie thrust the letter into I
his pocket, without even breakingI
the seal. Then I left them, and
went in to talk with Mrs. Grey.
The moon rose, silvering the river
wavelets, the summer stars looked
softly down, iad t1ue young gi-l
drank in the music of old, old
story;' which her Purer nature
accepted as truth.
Hlarry Hun ting'ton was uinusua!
ly grave when he entered our room
that night, and lihtin!g ,is eigar,
smoked for a long time without
uttering a word. At last I heard f
him call Me.

and I wish you to help rile.'
'Do you recall your promiso,
'And it is just in reference to
that promise that I would now
speak. I did promise not to flirt.
and I did not even mean to be )
interested. Indeed, if I had found1
one shladow of guile, I could have
closed my heart most r-esolutely,
but she is as pur as an angel.

I have never told her of my en

'Then br-eak vour- engagement
and marr-y her. It is only what a
muan of honor would do.'
'You are strict in your notions,
lie cid not continue the con
ver-sat ion, and the next morning
we left Clovernook.
Months wore on; the winter in
New York came frecighted with
excitement, and I, absorbed in my
business, sawv little of Coul. Hunt ing

I could not forget the fair
beauty of sweet Annie Grey-. and

almost closed, when one morning
on enter-ing the offlee, Ifound upon
my table a letter fr-om Mrs. Girey.
'Annie is very ill,' she wrote,
'and has asked to see you.'
The next boat bore me to Clo
vernook, when I found the little
village white with snow and death
like in its winter- quiet. The
shady avenue, the walks recalling
our old summer life were str-ipped
of their dar-k green drapery. -anid
the windows of the cottaige were
all closed. Hector. the house dogz,
barked my fitrst welcome and theno
Mi-s. Griey came out to meet rue.
Her- ihee was very pale, and her
eves illedi with te-Irs. when she :1
took my hand arid whiisper-ed. 'I1
anm so g-lad that you camne.'
I followed her into the parior
wthetre she led me, and ther-ie found
my At-but us lying crushed and
blighted. Mrs. Grey shut the
door and left us.
-I hardly know how to speak to
you, Mr-. Artnold,' she,said, 'I mu st(

I weil knew to whom the 'him'
referred, so I could only bold the

D)a. :M.mv~ X WALKERI ON HER
M 1rsel.E.-Dir. Mar'y Walker was
thec heroine of'a scene yesterday.
i which she demonstrated her
nowledge of tile manly art of
elf-def'ense. It appears that two
rows 0f tile seats in one of 1.he
'eenlen's g'alleries of the House
wer set an:art for laidies. Dr.
Mary was making her way to
nxard them when she was stopped
by the doorkee per in charge, who
told her those seats were reserved
"Well, I'm a lady," said Dr.
"1 don't know about that," re
torted the doorkeeper. hI shahl
have to examine"
lie didn't finish the sentence,
for Mary str'uck out from tbe
shoulder~like a pr'ize fighter, and
planted a blow on the doorkeeper's
potato-trap. lie didn't like that
sor't ofar'gument at all, but refrain
ed f'romi retaliating in kind, though
lie warneid thle beliiger'ent docr
not to strike him again.
"Then get out of' my way," ex
claimed Walker. br'andishing her
arms about wildly--and so she
marched on triumphantly, and
took a seat with the ladies.-N'. 0.

RECENT DISCOVERIEs IN THE

igo. 3Mr Dixon. of England. has
or some time been exploring the
wo remarkable ahamb ers known
1s the King's an i Queen's chain
>er's, in the interior of the Great
Pyramids. By means of a wire
ntroduced between the joints of
hie masonry, he found a space,
tnd was thereupon induc-ed to bore
nto the walls of the Queen's chamn
aer, when he discovered a passage
say, eight by nine inches in di
neslis. evidently a ventilating
lue. IuJ terminus has not yet
een found. Within the passage
vay he found a bronze hook, which
s supposed to be the most ancient
pecimen of bronze now existing.
le also found a piece of worked ce
lar wood and a granite ball, which
atter is be!ieved to have been an
?gyptian weight. Its diameter is
2 inches. As the walls behind
vhich these articles were found
vere solid on tbe inner side ofthe
hamber, it is believed that they
vere placed in the positions where
hey were found at the time the
