A Story of the Curfew.
To many hearts in the old country
that cherish its traditions, the curfew
recalls ft story of love's devotion.
In tho time of Cromwell a young sol
dier, for Eomo offeuse, was condemned to
die, and tho time cf his death was fixed
?at the ringing of the curfew. Naturally
such a doom would be fearful arvj^bitier
,to one in the years of his hope and
prime, but to this unhappy youtn death
was doubly terrible, ?iuee he was soon
to havo been married to a beautiful lady
whom he had long loved.
The lady, who loved him bo ardently
in return, had used her utmost efforts to
his -fearful Jiite, pleading with the
iudgefrpftud even with Cromwell hituselt,
but all jn^VijiD- In her despair ehe
tried to bribo tbc^d sexton not to ring
the bell, but she foV"d that impossible.
The hour drew nealMor tho execut ion.
Tho preporationswereNcompleted. The
officer* of the law bright forth the
prisoner, and waited, \\\\n\ the sun was
setting, for the signal froms.lho distant
To the wonder of everybody it did
not ring. Only one person at that mo
incut knew why. .The poor girl-hersclf,
half wild with the thought of'Jicr lover's
peril, had rushed uoseoo up the win!
ing stairs, and climl ed tho ladders into
tho helfry loft and seizod tho tonguo of
Tho old festen was in his place,
prompt to the fatal moment. He throw
his weight upon the ropo and the bell,
obedient to j his practiced hand, reeled
and swung to nnd fro in tho tower. But
the brave girl kept her hold, aud ul
bound issued from tho motallic lips.
Again and again the sexton drew the
rope, but with desperate strength tho
young heroino held on. Every move
went mudo her position more fearful,
every bway of the b ill's huge weight
threatened to fling her through the high
tower window, but she would not let go
At last the sexton went away. Old
nnd deaf he had not noticed that tho
curfow gave no peal. The bravo girl
7?. descended from the belfry, wounded and
trembling. She hurried from tho chnrch
to tho place of execution. Cromwell
himself was there, and was just sending
to demand why the bell was silent. She
. l.i'.tely white with eiokening horror, glows
with hope and canrigo now;
At Iiis feet she told her story, showed her
bands all bruised and torn,
And Ih;i sweet young face still haggard with
tho anguish It had worn;
Touched his heat t with sudden pity, lit his
eyes With misty light
