All the fluttering wishes
Caged within thy beert
Beat their winga against it.
' LonRinc to depart,
Till thev shake their prison
With IbPir wounded cry:
Opem then, thy heart to-day,
An? let the captives ny.
Let them first fly upward
Through the starry air,
Till you almost loso them,
For their homo is there.
Then with outspread pinions.
Circling round and round,
Wing their way wherever,
Want and woe are found.
Where tho weary stitcher
ToilB for daily bread:
Where tho lonely watcher
Watches by"tho dead;
Where with thin weak fingers,
Toiling in the loom,
Stand the little children,
Blighted ere they bloom.
Where by darkness blinded.
Groping for tho light,
With distorted conscience
Men do wrong for right;
Where in the cold shadow.
Br smooth pleasure thrown,
Human hearts by hundreds
Harden into stone.
Where on dusty highways,
With faint .heart and slow,
Cursing the glad sunlight.
Hungry outcasts go;
Where all mirth is sileneed,
And tho earth is chill,
For one place is empty,
And one voice is still.
Some hearts will be lighter
While your captives roam,
For their tender singing,
Then recall them nome;
When tho sunny hours
Into night depart,
8oftIy they will nestle
In a quiet heart.
"I don't "know any more till I
came to, as the women call it.
"I was in a bunk of a small bark,
I could tell that by the short pitch
she made. Long ships always pitch
slower. I heard somebody say,
'He's all right, doctor.'
"So I was in a littlo while-sat up
and asked for food. Lord bless you,
sir, how good it was; I never tasted
anything half as sweet as that beef
tea the doctor gave me. Nice!-I
can't tell how nice it was. You see
I'd been getting up an appetite for it.
Whether I should like to go to the
same school again to learn how nice
beef-tea could be, I don't know
rather think not.
"In a few days I was well-rather
thin and pale, I think, to what I am
now-and then I asked them how
they found me.
"'Mate'U tell you,' says the cap?
tain, 'give you his log, you can copy
it if you like. '
"I did, and here it is, a fair copy
it looks nice, yon see, by the side of
these others, cause they were written
when the paper was soaked with
water and my fingers were numbed
with cold, and written with pencil,
too. This I wrote in the captain's
cabin with a pen. I kept it in the
same book, though the paper was
bad, so as to have it altogether.
"I took the book, and with Mr.
Stevens' permission, copied the log
"BAKQUE ESMERALDA, June 21st.
Wind S. W. S.-rather heavy; got
sun long. 42 deg. 10 min. lat. 44 dog.
15 min. "Wind steady-twelve o'clock
-sighted a sail three points starboard
bow-couldn't see name-carpenter
finished new spanker-boom-opened
hatches, took up three casks beef and
one bottle porter. About two o'clock
sighted an iceberg right ahead-pas?
senger wanted to see it nearer-"-cap?
tain ordered to steer accordingly.
About four could make out shape.
Mr. Burton said he could see two
black and white birds on it with the
glass-was quite sure; half-past four
saw that they were a man and a boy
-lowered quarter-boat starboard and
went to fetch them off; they lay on a
shelf about six feet out of "the water
-some difficulty to get at them
sent up three men and lowered them
into the boat. They seemed dead
went round and found another man
lowered him into the boat-took off
three seal-skulls with black wicks in
them; been used as lamps; clothing,
and also three guns. Brought all
aboard. Doctor said one man
the one found alone-was quite
dead; tho others not dead. Had I
baths in tbe captain's cabin. Boy !
came to and said, 'A sail! A sail!'
and kept on saying it; the man
seemed nearly dead. After four
hours-about half-past eight-he
came to, and said, 'Where's the boy?'
Told him he was all right-took in
stun-sails-wind shifted two points
iceberg hull down at ten-lost sight
of it at twelve.
"June 22d.-Wind S. S. W.
Heavy rain-man ">etter-boy still
keeps saying, 'A sail! A sail!' Doctor
says he's quite mad-man not allow
ed to talk-buried the dead man
marks on clothing, 'J. Sands;' cloth- ?
ing good, but much worn and sodden. I
" 'Esther' marked on the arm in
blue points with red capitals. Two
flags and a half moon under, with a
part of a head on it-may be the pic?
ture of half a coin of some kind-no
other marks on the body. Doctor
"Wind shifted and blew rather
heavy from S. W. Took in the main-1
"June 23d.-Man better-boy still
muttering when not being fed-can't
eat yet-man got up at four o'clock
and came on deck-said his name
was Stevens-that they got on the
berg in May from the Belle of Aber?
deen. Out twenty-nine day? when
he went off. We found him next
! day, tho thirtieth out, we expect.
! Doctor says another day would have
killed them both. The man, Sands,
died the twenty-fourth day ont, at
44 4There. that's the log,' said Ben,
4and now I can tell you the rest, for
I was well on the fourth day; though
not strong-could walk about the
deck. The doctor gave me some
j ointment for my throat and waist,
i and I was all right in about a week.
I "The boy, too, got better and left
j off muttering. Doctor read to him,
j made him work about the ship, and
! tried all sorts of ways to make him
think of something else.
4 'In another fortnight I said good?
bye to the Esmeralda's people and
started for the North in a steamer,
taking the boy with mc.
"We saw the owner, and found
that the captain of the Belle of Aber?
deen had written home, and that
they'd given us up for lost. Sleepy
Sam reached the ship thc day after
he left us.
"The owner was so pleased with
me that he gave me five hundred
pounds for taking care of his son.
I said I'd only doue my duty; but
he would have me take it, so at last
44 'And,' says he, 'Ben, my boy,'
(they always call us boys.) 'Ben, my
boy,' says he, 'if ever you want a
friend, you know where to come for
one. I should have been a broken?
hearted man, Ben, if it hadn't been
for you taking care of him. God
bless you, Ben. But you must come
and see his mother before you go. '
"Well, J went up to the house,
and saw a jne, handsomely dressed
old lady. You see they weren't likeh
to have any more, and that made
them all the fonder of the boy.
" 'Mr. Stevens, my dear,' says hi
"Yoii'd hardly think it, but it's as
true as I stand here-the old ladj
went down on her knees to me and
kissed my hand, and cried fit t<
break her heart.
44 'God bless you, Mr. Stevena,
says she, 'God bless you, for yoiu
kindness to my poor boy. Bil ne\ ei
forget you. You <aust take this tc
think of me sometimes. I sha!
always pray for you. '
"It was a ring. That's it," saic
Ben, showing me a Bolid-looking golt
ring, with a large diamond in it.
4 4Well, I wok it, for I was getting
quite uncomfortable at her taking oi
so ; but, Lord bless you, it seemed tc
do her good to have her cry out; anc
the owner, he looked on and wipec
his eyes now and then. Last of all
I was obliged to say I'd only don*
my duty by the boy. But sin
wouldn't listen, but kept saying, 4GO?
bless you}' and crying over my hand
and 1 jen she seemed to go off faint
so I got away theu. Of course, a
soon as I could, I came home.
4'I found mother all right. 4How'
Esther?' says I, as jauntily as if '.
didn't care a button about her
Mother looked pretty hard at me.
" 4Oh, she's well enough.'
" 'Fitzjames come back?' says I.
44 No, he'll never come back
villain!' says mother. She was al
rays down on him when she had
chance. Of course I knew he'd neve
come back better than she did.
"I went to see Esther next daj
She shook hands and kissed me, sai
I looked ill, then says, 'Have yo
got anything to tell me?' I don
know how it was she asked this-soi
of what you call presentiment, c
instinct, same as dogs have. Lore
sir, a woman or a dog can always te
what you mean before you speak-i
things about the feelings. Som
children, too, have this kind of thin
very strong. Perhaps, after all,
looked as if I knew something.
44 4Have you seen him?'-'him
you know, as if there wasn't jth<
hims-and asking me, too, just as
I cared as much about it as she di<
but Lord, sir, they don't think an;
body's a right to think of anyboc
but their 4him. '
"Yes,' says I, Tve seen .hin
44 4Where is he? Take me to hin
She looked at me a minute. 'N
Ben,'says she, 'he's dead! I kno
he is! I see he is! Oh, my Go
My own Fitzjames is dead!' And si
gripped my hand so hard, and sar
back in the chair and shut her eye
"After a little she says, 'Ben, t<
me all about it. Poor fellow! dear
"I told her as much as I co i
about it; and then I told her abo
"Give it me,' she said, 'give it ni
Ben. It's the last thing I gave hi
before-give it me.'
"I gave it her, and she kissed
quite solemn like, just as tho' it h
been his dead forehead.
4'Then I told her what he sf
about his not meaning to leave bei
" 'Did ho say that?'
44 4He did, Esther-he swore it; a
I believe it.'
4'She looked hard at mo for a litt
and then said:
44 'Thank you, Bun, for that; I
so glad yon believe it. I knew
didn't mean to leave me; and ?
got up and called her father, a
says, 'Father, he didn't mean
leave me. Ask Ben, there. He s
so with his dying breath; ho sw
it, Ben, didn't he? Tell father, c
"I told the old man.
" 'Ah,' says he, 'poor fellow! De
too! He's rightly punished.'
'",BuV says she, 'he told Ben
didn t mean to wrong me, he d
and she seemed as if ahe was qi
glad._ 'I know he never did.'
1 ""JUon't ?ee,! ?aid the father,
makes mnch difference whether he
did or not. He did it, and you Ve
lost your good name-and ours, too,
for that matter, Esther.'
