Becanse I begged so hard,
she has at last nnbarred
The treasure-chamber of her fastened heart.
And Love's Jeet enter in,
That ivaltett loner to win
Their way. nor would from closed door de-
His natlent. faithful feet
Find favor with my Sweet.
Because I begged o hard,
This. then, is niv reward

He turns away forlorn
His tired feet find rooms of faded rest,
Where all their dusty heat
Is cooleil by my Sweet.
Because I begged so hard.
For once mv tuteill-starml
Is swaved by themild might of happy moons,
uniyone iigniesi loucn:
Onlv! but oh. how. much!
Ijove wearies out whom well he importunes
auu wen am ne entreat
This mercy of my Sweet.
Because I begged so hard,
Years, with bad seasons marred.
Are lightened backward as with sudden suns
i ea, o-ierlite's whole skies
The lizht of her dear eves
Travels, like dAwn and sunset shed at once
Ai ixeu in one giory, meei
All days, this day, my Sweet!
Because I begged so hard,
The shadow doih retard
Upon the dial one delicious hour;
One hour that is not found
Within the day's dnll round
But added by great Loves exerted power.
Let time more on, its best
Is music now, my Sweet!
Still do I begher hand,
And as he pas-cil, so Love again would pass

Iteturning free and crowned.
The going of Ids feet shall fail, alas!
But now their eagea heat
Must win its way, my Sweet!
A furious -.varof seething waters rag
ing aromul a battlement of hard, wet
rocks; a foam-laslicd clifl' burying its
feet in an angry sea; and a long, white
fringe of surf drawing a line across the
blackness of the night; a sweeping gale
of wind howluig through the hollow
caverns among the rocks, and a great
ship going to pieces on the reef outside ;
an old man stooping over some object
which the sea had thrown pitilessly
among the stones, and holding bis lan
tern forward as if to set; what thing it
was lie had stumbled over.
"A little brandy, my good fellow!"
he shouted, trying to throw his voice
above the loud roars of the breakers,
It will do you good. I have it. There!'
He lifted up the thing which he had
found, and set it' on a rockrwhich the
sea in its fury assaulted less mercilessly
than others. Bv the lantern's light it
seemed to be a young man, not strik
ingly handsome, but with well-formed,
regular features, and with a mass of
brown hair which lay across his face
like a drift of matted sea-weed. He
opened his eyes a moment in the glare
ot the lantern, and then dropped back
ward again in a swoon.
" Xo use," muttered the old man
lie's most dead already. The old wo
man will have to tend to him.'
Like one who was used to such bur
dens, he lifted the insensible wait light
ly in bis arms and climbed with him by
the steep path to the top of the cliff
above. A little cottage, built far back
from the edge of the rocks, sent one
cheering ray of light .cleaving through
the blustering, inky' night, far out to
sea; and towards this the old fisherman
Here, mother,"' he said, bursting open
the door with his foot, ami depositing
is bundle for it wa( little else now
upon a couch within; 'take care of this
one. IIe'3 the lirst., The vessel's break
up ; there may be more. Hot brandy
and plenty of blankets "will do it, I
'Mercy upon us !' cried the old wo-t
man, 'what a good-looking man! Lay
him down there. That's it. Now leave
him to me, Silas Grant, and go back and
help the others. I've resurrected more
than one young chap, and old ones too,
that was nigher gone than this.'
'I know it,' said Silan. "Where is
I sent her off to bed. I was afraid
some of ?em might be brought in here
that even I couldn't resurrect, and there
is no use in seeing such things.
'Quite right,' he replied, buttoning up
his" coat for another rally into the storm.
Don't let her see, him cither before
Wrapped snugly in Dame Grant's
warm blankets, and witu noi waier-Doi-tlcs
at his hands and feet, the rescued ;
man glided, almost without a waking :
paiisc,' from the unconsciousness of
death to the insensibility of sleep. To
him the howling gale and beating storm
ithoutwere as the wind and rain of
another world. He heard them not.
He knew nothing of the drifting spars
aniktimbcrs and pieces of wreck that j

shore. It was not till long afterwards
that lie knew the etory of that dreadful
night and of his own rescue. Then they
told him of the dead mother whom the
sea had-hurled pitiously ashore witli
her lifeless infant clasped close to her
cold bosom, and her long iiair sweeping
its baby lace; and of that other silent
story of a woman's love, where one,
wheh in the heaviest 6f the surf, and al
most within reach of help, on looking
round in. the glare of the beacons, and
seeing that her husband had lost hold
upon the slender spar that had thus far
borne them both, let go her own grasp
also, and followed him to death without
a .cry- Through all these things he
slept in peaceful unconsciousness.
When he awoke, it was to.lightand
life. The first object that met his open
ing eyes was one so' unreal and beauti
ful that he doubted whether it, belonged
to heaven or earth. At the window
near his bed sat a young and slender
figure, with fiilthful frank bluo eyes,
bending over some pretty work in
worsted. Lovely as was the rosy beau
ty of her cheeks, yet was, it surpassed
by the glory of her long'iind wondrous
hair, which dropped downward upon
her shoulders In the morning sunlight

quietly, and resumed her work, while
the patient fastened his eyes upon her
witli a gaze so rapt that one would
think her the last thing he was to look
upon this side the grave.
Xo one will care to hear the story of
his long recovery; of the dark, chaotic
days that seemed all dreams; of the
brighter, plcasanter weeks that were
dreams too, but cheerier ones; of the
short and swiftly-flying hours that were
painless at last, when he could sit bol

And Flora, whose nimble fingers were
ever knitting, quickly and surely knit

purred so treacherously along the shore
beneath the cliffs.
She had let fall the work, and was
gazing thoughtfully at tho distant sails
far away upon the water. At the same
glance, he perceived that she was not
the only listener. A .rough, sunburned
figure, in a coarse blue shirt, was lean
ing carelessly upon the garden-gate, and
teadfastly regarding them with a look
which seemed to betoken anything but
friendliness of feeling. As Flora sawi

mass of solid iron. Quick as they had
been they had miscalculated its direc

upon the beach below, it suddenly al
tered its course, and hurling its victims
info the sand beneath it, stopped and
lay with all its crushing weight upon
'Jcthro,' said Arthur, as soon as he
could collect his stunned and scattered
senses, 'Are you killed?
He could not see him, but he heard

'Xo, not killed! But, oh, my legs!
They're gone, I think.'
'Yes, masltcd I Are you hurt ?'
'Xo, buj; I am fast.'
'What will become of us? Have we
got to die here?'
But there was help at hand. Old Si
las, at work at his nets far down the
beach had heard the crash and seen the
two figures disappear. He came run
ning towards them now, and in a few
minutes was on the spot.
Are ye both alive?' he shouted.
'Yes, yes, alive", both of us,' came
from the captives, cheerfully.
'Thank God ! I'll have ye out of there

He started away for help as fast as
his legs would carry him, and in half
an hour came back with five others, who
had left their nets to assist him.
Get him out first,' said Jethro.
Don't begin with me.'
'Xo, no,' said Arthur. Commence on
the other side.' There's time for me
'I tell you I'won't be dug out first.1
retorted Jethro. 'I am of no uso for

much difference, even if they weren't.'
fBy the Lord Harry 1 said old Silas,
Yc'll have to begin somewhere migh
ty quick, for the tide has turned, and
it's coming upon us fast.'
'Let it be him, then,; replied Jethro,
ve got my reasons for it.and he knows
what they -are. There ain't more than
time enough to get one of us out, and
if he dies, it will break somebody's
heart. Xobody cares for me.'
A slender form, with golden hair
floating wildly in the wind, came hast
ening down the path, and dropping
upon her knees at Arthur's side, wrung
her hands. The argument was too po
tent for the men to hesitate longer, and
striking their spades into the sand,they
began their work. The young girl ut
tered not a word, but knelt there watch
ing tljcm with anxious brow, and with
her red Hps pressed hard together.
Xow work, men, work, for the re
morseless sea is coming, aud though it
comes by inches, yet it will surely cov
er the place where this rock lies.
For an hour they dig steadily, until
the water was nearly at their feet; but
as the sand was removed from tlie stone,
the great mass settled down upon the
prisoners yet more firmly.
'We must get timbers,' shouted Silas,
in desperation. 'It must be propped.'
And so broken spars were thrust un
der it, and the work resumed. And
still, the sea came steadily on. Their
feet were covered now,and Flora wrung
her hands until the nails were buried
in the flesh.
'I knew it,' murmered Jethro. 'It has
ebbed away at last, and the tide has
come. It has brought me my death, as
Said it would. You will save him,but
ou can't save me, Flora.
She left her place hy Arthur, and
coming round to tlie other side, knelt
down by the sufferer, and took his hard
hand In hers. v
You will forgive what I Bald to you
this afternoon,' he pleaded looking up
n her pitying eyes. 'I shouldn't have
done it; but I loved you, Flora, and it
was mighty hard to give you up. It is
better this way, though. If you had
married liim, and I had been by to see,
it would have made me miserable, and
should have hated him:'
'Oh, Jcthro! she said, 'don't talk in
this way. There will be still time to
save you. 1 know there will.'
'Xo , said Jcthro. 'Don't think it. If
they save him for you, I shall die feei

The water was almost over him now
and she had reached her arms length to
hold his hand. A loud shout from the
workers on tho other side announced
success; and Bhe saw them 'carrying
Arthur's inanimate form beyond the
reach of tho advancing tide. But Ar
thur was alive, and Jethro was at the
rate of death.
He raised her hand to his lips as tlie
men came trooping down to see -what
lianec of life there still might be for

he loosed his grasp, a great wave flowed
over him, and he was gone.

And if she makes the thin, sensitive,

A year or more since considerable ex

part of the couuty,and among the spec

discovery of a rich vein of pure lead
ore ou Yellow creek. So well was this
report corroborated that specimens of
the minerals were sent to this city, a
chunk of which we kept to exhibit to
tlie curious and incredulous. There
was 110 question but what the speci
mens were unusually pure, and all
doubts as to discovery were dispelled.
Old residents who lived in this part of
tlie State when the Indians were trou
blesome, remembered that the red skins
after a skirmish with'the settlers here,
always .disappeared up Yellow creek,
and returned with plenty of lead. Per
sons who were jortunate enough to own
land in the vicinity of the mines asked
fabulous sums per acre, and dreamed of
untold riches. Gentlemen from the
city visited the spot where the ore was
dug out,and altera careful examination
pronounced it to be genuine. "Those
who had been victims of the. oil excite
ment in that region of country did not
pitch into the lead so readily. The
price of land declined in consequence
of buyers holding off, and no more lead
was discovered. Recently it ,has come
to light, not lead mines, but the fact
