March! Mareh! March! They are coming
in troops to the tune of the wind;
Red-beaded woodpeckers drumming,
Gold-crested thrushers behind;
Sparrows in brown jackets hopping
Past every gateway and door;
Finches with crimson ever stopping
Just where they stopped years before.
M-rch! March! March! They are slipping
fato their places at last,
Little white lily-bads dripping
Under the showers that fall fast;
Buttercups, violets, roses;
Snowdrop and bluebell and pink;
Throng upon throng of sweet posies,
Bending the dewdrops to drink.
March! March! March! They will hurry
- Forth at the wild bugle-sound,
Blossoms and birds in a fiarry,
Flattering all over the ground,
Hang out your flags, birch and willow!
Shake out your red tassels, larch!
Grass-blades, up from your earth-pillow!
Hear who is calling you-March!

And while this discussion was

vivid roses to her cheeks.
She was certainly very lovely,
and a credit to Dr. Carey's taste.

gallant little Lucy escorted Miss
Warren to the walk that led to
the nwrow sandy istlhnus that
connected 'Lily Island' with the
mainland. Of course the boating
party had reached there first, and
congratulated Josie and Lucy o
having arrived safely in a way
that, although she knew it was
more badinage cut Josie's sensilive
nature to the very quick. But she
put the painful feeling away as
well as sbe could, and joined in

Mrs. Christie's respect and admira

sprang up from the sands with a
low horrified cry.
- The tide is coming i.n! Auntie,
Mrs. Grosvenor, Miss Warren,
jump into the boat as quick as
you can! Come Lucy, Flossie! Oh,
how could we all have forgotten
that the island is submerged every

Josie stood still, white as a
ghost, while Mrs. Christie sprang

with a deathly thrill of something
at her heart, that before it reach
ed the shore, the cruel, crushing
seething wave would have swept
relentlessly over Lily Island.
That night! And while he would
be there among them all, she
would be lying dead-drowned;
with seaweeds in her hair.
And a cold, ice cold shudder
crept nearer and nearer her heart,
that beat so feebly. The surf
thundered all 4round the little
spot of land that was (rrowing
smaller so perceptibly. The skies
grew blacker and darker; the wind
howled and shrieked like a demon.
She dragged berself up off the
sands where the water iad alrea

The waves rose, and rose, and

bitterness of death.

lips and horror stricken eves.
'Get somebldy to go ta-k for

'She is on Lily Island ! I'll give

She turned imploringly to a wea

watched them land.

reverently. 'Lily Island is five
feet under water by this.time!'
And Mrs. Christie's face grew
ashen with borror, w.hilo Mrs.

'She will not die,' Dr. Carey

his voice, as he laid Josie's slender
hand back on the coverlet of Mrs.
Grosvenor's bed. -She has been
very near the gate of death, but
God wIl not demand the awful
sacrifice. She will live!'
And Josie did live to learn that
a party of fishermen, had seen her
on the rocky point on the island,
the waters within a yard of its
summit, and found her in a deep
faint so like death that it was
hours before she was restored to
life and love.

It is a fiamiliar fact that a black
object oti a white ground will ap
pear much larger than it is in re
ality. Fo:- example, a white stripe
on a black surfaco is apparently
broader than a black stripe of
equal width on a w hite surface.
Peter ScherfFer has sought an ex
planation of the pbenomenon, and
thus accounts for it. When one
of our senses receives a double
sensation, one being strong and
the other weak, the latter is not
felt. Especially is this the case
when both impressions are of the
same kind, or when a strong effect
upon one of the senses is followed
by a weaker one ofthe-same kind.
