his master's voice.
The beggar, without troubling him
self to hurry, walked quietly through
the garden, out Into the village street
and passed on.
Now come with me to another farm
house, half a mile further on, and some
what nearer the sea. This time we will
step into the kitchen, and see who are
there.
A cheerful, happy group. At one side
of the lire the Jlouscjatwr, (as the Ger
mans say,) Conrad School, a strong,
sunburnt, good-humored fanner. He is
righting a pair of sheais that is out of
order, and every now and then casting
a well-pleased glance on the other on
his wife, Dame Eleta, who is plying her
needle busily on the other side of the
lire, and Coletta, who is helping her
younger brother Wilibald to make a
cross-bow, and little Trudchen, who is
playing with the great long-haired dog
that lies basking before the lire.
"I wish Poppo would come in," said
Dame Schoorl at length.
"More like that I shall have to get
out," answered her husband. The
Wafer stoat will want all the hands they
can get to-night. It is an awful storm,
surely. Uy St. "Wilibald, what a gust
that was!"
I must stop to explain to you that the
Waicr-stuut are the 'persons into whose
charge the dykes of Holland arc given.
They have a large revenue, and many
ofllcers and servants under them; and
one of their chief stations is thellonds
bossche, of which T have already
spoken.
"I trust, father, there will bo no mis
chief." said Coletta.
"Aye, child, and you would say so a
thousand times as earnestly it you could
remember the last great storm ten years
ago come next month. Aye ! that was
n storm indeed ! And yet we had but
little of it here."
"I shall go out, wife, if this lasts."
said Schoorl. "Last tide only wanted
four inches of the highest I ever saw it;
and that is near a foot above Great Dan
cer mark, llnrlt ! -what is that V"
A hand was laid on the door, and an
aed voice said "Take a poor man in
for the love of God !"
"Mary, come in and welcome," cried
Conrad, starting up. " It is not the
night for a dog to lie out in." lie drew
back the bar the door was dashed open
bv the wind the squall beat into the
house the lire glared out, and it wanted
the strong man's full strength to close
it again. The same beggar whom we
saw before, pale, weary, and dripping
from head to loot, stood in the kitchen
"Come in, good man, come nearer to
the lire!" cried Dame Elela. "What's
its use but to warm a body at? Nay,
never stand about the tiles. I'll war
rant It's easier to clean thorn than to
cure a fever."
"That's true," said the honest farmer,
"Or stay step this way, man any
thing were bettor than those wet rags."
"With many thanks, the beggar fol
lowed his host, and presently came back
wrapped up in a tincK dry rug.
"Set on supper, girl," said her father
to Coletta ; " this honest man is hung
ered, I know and if he is not, T am."
So the supper was set on : a mighty
boar ham the bearer of which had fat
tened himself on the acorns of Olden
burg; a great Perinerend cheese; bread
as white as snow, and Alkmaar beer.
And now the storm lulled a little. The
beggar, seated at the lower end of tho
long table, that shone llko a black looking-glass,
said littlo and ato scarcoly
anything. The others, and especially
Conrad, commented on tho tempest,
wondered if Poppo would return that
night, and told doleful stories of past
lloods. Towards eight o'clock tho wind
rose again.
" I will go out, said the fanner; "it is
a shame to leave those men on such a
night." And he had just taken down
his ponderous stick, when the door was
shaken violently, and a voice shouted,
"let me in! let me in!"
"It Is Poppo!" cried Coletta; and she
flew to the door.
"Father!" cried tho" young man,
rushing in, battered and drenched with
tho storm, "como to the Dyke Instant

"Water-warden remembers it in the year
of tho great Hood all tho village is out

his last yard of canvass ; como at once."
And fatlierand son were oil" in a moment.
A wild lierce scene. A long dyke,
Hteen to tho land, sloning more gently
oil to tho sea; its narrow summit allvo
with strong men, hurrying this way
and that; torches glaring out with a
horrible brightness ; tho sea roaring and
shouting with a nolso far more dreadful
than thunder; tho long waves licking
up tho ascent, oven to tho very top, anil
every now and then sweeping over, and
deluging tho land side with tuns of
water; tho wind howling and shrieking
along the embankments, boiuo hurrying
onwards with bundles of willow twigs,
some in groups of live or six kneeling
on tho ground, and stitching up sacks
of sand ; tho ollleors bellowing out their
orders, hero and there a heap of straw
llred lor a clearer liirht seaward : every
where terror, confusion, cries, tho thun
the waves were battled in their intent.
Towards nine o'clock that night the
gust drove fiercer, and the rain beat
heavier, on Farmer Sehoorl's gables.
And ever and anon came a sound which
none then present had ever heard a
heavy fall and rush on the roof, as the
tops oi some oi tne mountain waves
were carried right over the embank
ment, and swept down like a deluge in
to the village. Mother and children sat
by the lire in terror scarcely a word
spoken only now and then a half-sup
pressed cry as tho thunder ol the sea, or
the roar of the falling spray, M as louder
than common.
:V knock at the door. It opened. The
beggar who had left shortly after Con
rad Schoorl had gone forth, again en
tered.
"Do you wish to be saved?" said he.
If you do, follow me1"
"Follow you where?" cried Dame
Schoorl, wildly. "And where is my
hushand v"
"Be of irood cheer." ho answered.
"Your husband shall be saved also. Hut
in an hour where we arc now standing
will he a deep sea. One house only in
the village Avill hold out against the in
undation, and that is Jan luaarseirs.
Thither you must go."
They looked at him m amazement.
Reixtfar still in outward appearance, he
spoke so that they felt that his words
were truth. None dared to ask him
whence he had his tidings. They knew
not wlio it was that spake: only they
felt that he was not of this world.
""Will my husband and my son be
saved?" asked Dame Fleta, in a low
voice.
"T will look to their safety. Follow
me, and at once."
Steadying themselves as well as they
could against the blast, the mother and
Her eiiiidrcn wcntlorth into the village
street. A pitch-black night. On the
sea-wall glaring ghastly lires ; and ever
and anon a bright cloud of spray burst
ing up high above them. In the streets
women and children hurrying wildly
by. Cries, shrieks, and confusion eve
rywhere. "Press on. and turn neither right nor
left," said their leader.
A louder thunder from the dyke : and
such a shower of spray fell as drenched
them to the skin, and made them gasp
for breath.
"Keep on to Maarsen's," again said
their guide ; "I go to save theothers."
They passed on. At the garden wall
they met Jan Maarsen himself hurrying
out in a irenzy oi despair.
"Stay, goo'd neighbor, stay," cried
Dame Schoorl. Hut he rushed past.
Thankful once more to be in shelter, the
three hastened in at the door which the
unhappy man had left open, closed it,
and same down on their knees.
""We have made a good light,
said the water-warden of the
"but we are beaten. God have
on our souls! for our bodies will
the fishes."
"Can nothing more lie done?"
Poppo.
"What is the use ol building above
when the foundations are going ?" said
Oostcrhout coolly. "Come, my lads, let
us all forgive anil ask to be forgiven, if
we havo any matter between us ; and
then kneel down ami the sea may do its
worst."
"Follow me," said a deep, low voice at
Conrad's side
"Where?" he cried, starting. "Who
spoke'.'"
"Follow me," again said the voice
Anil father and son afterwards used to
say that neither knowing why nor
whither they were to follow, they felt
compelled to go. They saw nothing ;
they only heard u voice belore them
Generally it only said, "follow," but
onco or twice it cried more loudly, "lol
mo quicker!" Onwards and onwards It
led them, till they stood at Jan Maar
sen's door.
"In, "said tho voice; "and take refuge
in tho upper story ; and you will lw
saved."
At tho same hour, fifty miles away
Philip bchoorl, the boat-builder of
Harderwyok was sitting at supper. A
low, quaint, boarded room, leaning
out ovor tho canal; the walls orna
mented with three or four strango lish.
dried and nailed against the panelling;
tho lire, crackling and merry; tho rain
dashing In Hoods against tho shutters;
even the lazy canal rippling against its
bank.
"A bad night this," said
himself. "Avery bad night,
ter-staat will havo enough to
the dykes, this will." And he solaced
himself wlthanother draught from tho
tankard which stood by his elbow.
A stop on tho crazy, tumble-down
stairs.
"Who can it beat this time of night?"
said tho old boat-builder. "Why, tho
wnoio town must no a-uett."
Tho beggar whom ho saw before at
Kanip opened tho door.
"Philip bchoorl," said no, "man a
boat for Alkmaar."
Tho old man ho knew not why
trembled
"A boat for Alkmarr !" cried he. "And
why?"
"To save your brother," said tho
or.
"And how? 1 pray you," asked Phil
That was indeed a night for Holland.
In peaceful little country villages wea
ried men lay down to dream of labors of
another day; mot hers pillowed their
little ones on their arms and rejoiced in
their sweet sleep ; nurses watched the
uneasy rest of (lie sick; evil men awoke
to their deeds of darkness, and went
stealthily about. Suddenly, a distant
hum, like the sound of evening insects
around a sunny oak. It grows louder;
now it is like the wind In the distant
foi'est. A strange, cold sprayey gale. A
fearful shaking and trembling as of an
earthquake. A rumbling and bellow
ing, louder, fiercer, wilder ; than a roar
of water a few shrieks, a lew moments'
struggles, and the village was blotted out
from the world. Between sunrise and
sunset eighty thousand persons went to
their last account.
Two houses only stood where the In
undation reached; one the castle of
Hredrode, near Uo't ; and the farm of
Jan Maarsen, at 'Camp.
And a hundred years after, beforo
Maarsen's gate, might be seen a stone,
with (lie legend, in old Dutch letters:
"He not forgetful to entertain stran
gers; for thereby some have entertained
angels unawares."

Oim Paim:i!. We present to our rea
ders to-day, with an excellent story and
the usual telegraphic, local, and mis
cellaneous matter, one of the richest
poems ever produced in Yankeeland.
Tho author has cautioned us against
mentioning his name, but "his mark"
is so plain upon the poem that the cau
tion is superfluous. The person who
omits to read it misses a rare treat, and
several hearty laughs.
