I ca'I on thy name in the silence, J
I list for an answering voice,
"Whose accents to-niht itouM beguile me, '
And make my sad spirit rejoice.
I yearn for the Bound of thy footstep
Mid tho gloom that hangs .starless and drear
I lift up my eyes in the seeming
That thou, O beloved, art here!
I stretch out my anas to enfold thee,
They cla--p the impalpable air;
She spell of thy presence is round me.
O, beautiful dead, tej5 me where
In the realms of eternity wanders
Thy fondly beloved spirit! Dost thou

Come back, O beloved, come uov'
Come back from that far "Isle of Sometime,'"

Gainst the heart that calls ever for thee.

In tat fair home of souls they'll not miss thee,
Come back from that shadowy land!

MT FIKST SEAT,
"What's on for to-morrow?" asked lleggie
Frecth, as we sat along the top of our garden
wall, resting ourselves. We that is. Ueggie
and Evelyn Freeth, 2ed Mitchell and myself
had jjst been indulging in a halt milespnrt
down the road, getting ourdves '"into wind,"
as v.e fondl imagined, for our coming school
garner It was nearly midsummer of the
year C4, and a Friday evening, &o that tho
next day vias our own.
"I vote ive take our trip to Inch Mickery,'
said Zeu Mitchell. "Uncle John told me wo
could have tho Curlew's gig any fine daj' wo
l"ked. so that we pioniiswi not to tako the tail
with us. He thinks w e'd go skylarking and
capsize her under cam as, so he will only let
us havo the oars; but I can ted you, we four
fellows can make her hiss thiough the water.
"Wo must start early and make a regular day
of it. Take plenty of 'grub..1 to keep us going
Tne proposition was carried" by acclama
tion, for this Inch Micker;.' trip wiua plcusiue
that wo had long looked forward to, and this
seemed a mot propitious time to carry it out.
"Ah! happy years', once more who would not bei

happy days were those when "we were boys
AVheio are they now these friends of tiu
Kolden days of youthi Rejrgie open hearted,
chivalrous, Quisolic lleggie! Away on a
stubbornly fought field in South Africa,
while nobi trjiug to hold yeui on against
overwhelming odds, you feil, pierced by tho
Zulu assegai, the victim of one of EngfandV
many -useless "httlo wars"' Eolyn the
staid, steady, sj-steimitic Evelj'n is now a
noted lawyer on the Homo Circuit in Eng
land, making a name and money fast. Nnl
merry, witty, piactical joking Ised away
out on a Te:ca ranch, 3-ou lend that free and
easy, unconventional life to which 3 on aro
suited. And wail I'm the "hero'' of this.
So, Inch Micltery, at S o'clock sharp the
next morning, was the word. I was to
provide tho commissaiiat, as it was
well known that my poor, dear, old
mother alw.iys made us oat an ample
and 1 echerche basket. The Fieeths were 10
bring Csl.ir.g tackle and a small Rook 1 iflo
with ammunition, white Ned was to make it
all right witn bis Uncle John about the boat.
Inch iliekerv was (or, for that matter, is
for 1 don't see how any change could ever bo
worked on it unless some of those Hell Gnto
engineers got at it) a very small, rocky island
in a F'olHi lri.li.
Tbat bright, dowy, June morning saw uc
early enough down at Grautou harbor, and
after much grumbling, interspersed with
curious, nautical, cxpletory oalhs, tho old,
one e3-ed skippor of the Curlew delivered
over to us his precious gig. resplendent in a
coat of green and gold, with tho parting in
junction, "Not to bo knockin' and gimdm'
the pamt oil o' the boat on them ;
Tho sun was shining brightly as we rounded '
tho pier head, and dived into the long, rolling 1
bwell ouLide, which told of a recent 'blow"
out somewhere on tho German ocean.
Iature seemed smiling on us. "Wo had nil
tho giorious beauties of tho winding frith
unfolded before us like some grand panorama.
Here, on a jutting promontory, boldly stood
out tho old, square, ivied kesp of Eoyton, as
dark anr defiant as when hundreds of years I
Ego it held its own ngaiust tne attack of ar-
qr.fbus and cuiveitii, but now, instead of gal
lant knights and men at arms, its only inhnb- '
ititnts are tho pert, no; jackdaw;, or tho
dashing, screaming swifts. Theic, peeping ,
out from the wealth of noble oaks and stately
elms, is tho picturesque mansion of the Lord
of Koeberry, ch" headquarters or the G. O. ,
M. 111 thoys celebrated Midlothian cam
caigrs. Hiro some lovely demesne, with J he
emerald sward carpeting the slopes to the rip
pling sea: nnd then a castle, grim and gray, '
stand.ng out in bold relief. Away m tho far
distance looms the lordly Ochtls, the blue
hazy summits seeming to melt away into tho
June clouds, while on our side the IVntlands ,
rear their purple, heath clad heads. A fair
nnd loveiv scene! And" af tr long, long days '
nnd wanderings here and there I can shut my
eyes and fancy once ogam that I am floating i
on tho waters vf the beauteous Forth.
Wo rowed merrily out into the frith and
f haped our course for tho island of our choice,
and rolling r.long gloriously over tho long, j
surging sw ell. -Tho "IIwi nnd Chickens'' is in j
one mass of white foam, as tho big rollers
break over the gregarious rocks which rejoice j
in the above innocent name, warning us time
we cannot attempt a lauding on the Inch ex-
cept on iba western side. - !
Sure enough, when we reach our destina-
tion wo find it in 0119 svNthinc mass of foam, !
too, mil giring it a. preuy iviue Leriu, wo
A pall round and glide into the smooth water
0:1 tho lea side.
It does not ta!; long to find a good, safe
haven for our baat, wh"re the precious pam:
will net suffer from those sanguinary rocks,
denounced by the Cyclopean j.fcipiv?r of tb
Curlew, and wo quickly unload our provis
ions, snd proceed at onco to fix on a xj; for
our camp intehen. A nice, cozy nook is soon
selected; and alter collecting a plentiful sup
pi v of drift nood, and getting the lira going
tbeariJv, we s-cttle down to our respective
avocations. By unanimous rote Evelyn is
installed cook, a. his skul in the culinary arc
is well known, and wo know ho cares not for
Buything in the sporting line.
2Ted and Rfgg take out the boat in lee
of the island and commence war 00 tho
"poddleyx"1 (the namo by which n species
of rock fish was known to us),
while I shoulder the nfo and Uirt with mur
derous thojghts intent. It is too early in the
day for the rabbits to be out suumni. them
gelves, ana I only fee. a couple of unwary,
diminutive sjtocir.iens, which I would scorn to
pull.the trieser otl.
I prowled about for a long time, peeping
.round the rocks to t.-y and se something
wprthy of 1,ry lead, but mot with no luck.
' When 1 got to the eastern point of the Inch
T.sat down on a rock to watch the maneuvers
St the sea bru as thy skimmed over the
jroken surf, wheeling, and screaming in a
-frar that would have warmed the heart of a I
Ipperary faction iijjuter. !
Ta nniit littloiuo lav it mv feet: it was i
I -nearly land iocueci. ana me commotion ouc-
gKie scarcely aiietitni u
lis I- looked down into tho ciaar, su'.l water
fthougbtwbat a jolly place it would be for
C dive and swim, and nothing but my totai
jiaoraaco of the natatory art ken: mo fror
Liiirw aadjlunrms-in. Jsudi-nlraa- i
attention was attracteI"By n sligEt "flop" "on
the water, and looking round I saw a big,
bullet looking head appear above the surface. 4
I had never seen one, but I knew at once that
I this was a seal, having heard that they fre-
I quanted the Inch at certain times of the year.
He evidently did not see me, and, breathless
with excitement, I stole the rifle to my shoul
1 der. I covered him but my hand shook so,
I was afraid to fire. Taking a long, long
I breath, to try and stay tho bouncing of my
j heart, I again took aim, pressed the trigger,
I and had the satisfaction to see tho fish beast
give a conclusive spring out of the water, roll
over on its .side, and commence splashing and
tumbling about in a way that told me it had
got its death wound. Almost mad with joy,
I threw tho rifle to tho ground, and began
clambering down the face of the rocks to
where my prey was now giving its last kick.
I managed to get down to the water's edge,
and stretching out, I was just able to touch
, my seal, and when it gave a strugglo to one
, side, and I missed him. I was not to be done,
i hov.over. so catching a firm hold of a tuft of
I sea weed growing out of a rock, I bent for
ward and made another grab at it, when
I whish! and I was in, head first! How I man
i aged it I dout know, but when I came to my
senses I found myself clutching a rugged
ledge of rock like grim death.
On trying to climb up, i hat was my con
sternation to find that the rocks shelved in
j under me and afforded no foothold, while the
i ledge on which my hands rested was so slimy
i and wet that I could hardly keep my hand on
, it. much les raise myself by it. Half stupid
j with flight, 1 could do nothing but yell out
I for help for some time, but the only answer
! was the mocking screams of the sea gulls as
thev whirled over my had and tho roar of
tiie waves as they dashed against the rocks.
j Seeing at length that I was only wasting
i the little strength I had left, I stopped shout
ing and looked about to see if there as no
way of escape. Except about two feet of a
ledge to which I lWd on, I now saw that on
both .sides of me, for several yards, the face
i of the rock was perfectly smooth and slimy,
i so that I ln:d not the slightest chance of being
' able to work along, hand over hand, to some
sp t u here I could get up.
Oh! what would I have given then to be
able to swim then even a half dozen strokes,
for what would have been sufficient to bring
me to a place where I could easiiy have as-
j cended. Hut it was all no u-e there I was,
' and thero I should stay, till help came. Again
and again I shouted but all to no purpose.
i What was my horror to see that an oc
casional wave now washed in through the
inlet and came surging up to where I clung!
i remcmbeied it was ebbing when wo lelt
ran"m iiarlwr, and that the tide must now

l? tenor gave me fresh strength, and I
jrave'tho mst frantic screams for help. It
1 ; a ...
menes to watch every wash of the waves sro
a little and a littls higher.
Tho sea was now dashing in angrily through
, the inlet and I found it hard to kep my pre
carious hold on the ledge.
Higher and higher came each wave surging
up to me, and I felt it was but a matter of
moments. I closed my eyes and tried to pray,
but 1 could think of nothing but my dear,
fond mother, and of her anguish when sho
would hear that her only child was gone.
Higher nnd moi 3 angry! I felt my hands
relax and I was just sinking' when suddenly
I felt a good, sound thump on the back. It
seemed to revive me. and looking over
my shoulder, what was my joy to see a
short, stout plank washing up against
me; it had been driven in through tho
opening without, my noticing it!
To clutch it was the work of an instant, and
the moment 1 got a firm hold of it I felt I
was safe. Pushing it before mo I struck out,
and managed to propel it to a place in the
loekswheral easily got up. As soon 1 felt
my feet on firm footing again I fell on my
knees and cried hko a child. I must havo
staved thcro some time, for the first thing
that aroused me was a dash of spray over my
head, as if some wave was making a last,
angry snatch at what they bad bsgun to look
on as their lawful prey. This wakened me up
to tho knowledge that the sooner I was out of
that tho better, and I proceeded to climb up
the rocks, a matter of no small difficulty, as I
was thoroughly worn out and numbed.
When I crawled back to the "camp,'' 1
found the bo3-s over a blazing fire, cooking
meat and tho fish they had caught.
They all gavo a cry of astonishment as
they looked up and saw my pale, haggard
face and dripping clothes, and commenced a
volley of questions, which I vainly tried to
answer. Ived, however, took in thp situation,
and clapping down a pannican of ale, with
about an ounce of black pepper in it, on the
fiVe, ho quickly had a drink ready which, I !
am Fu-e, ougnt to havo revived any one who
had only been a short time drowned, so potent 1
was it. Thanks to it, the fire and a good j
dinner, added to a boy's well known recuper- 1
ntivo powers, I was soon all right and told I
mv stoiy. I
I found that the boys did not intend calling i
me till dinner was ready, as the" feared thoy j
might spoil my getting a shot. They had 110 '
supposition of anything being wrong, onl
luiukiug that I was intrenched in some quie
soot, waiting for a "pot shot ' at a rabbit
If 1 had had to wan. for them I tear they
would ba"c found it hard to find me. After
dinner we went to look at the scene of my
adventure. We found it a regular seething
caldron, and I shuddered as 1 saw the waves
dashing about madly f. 11 side to side against
the rocks, and thought what would have been
my fate if I had been a few minutes more 111
the position I was in.
There was no sign of the causo of the
adventure, so I suppose it must either
hne been washed out to sea or havo
sun's: to the bottom. Ned quaintly
remarked, when I said, "I wish I knew the
fate of my seal.'' -Weil, one thing is certain,
he was near putting a seal on your fate."
Wo j;ot home all right that evening, and I
was none tho wote for my dip. but tho j
verv first thing 1 did was to go to Professor
Brown for r.i miming lessons. I soon mas
tered the art under -his able tuition, nnd

in any of his feats, 1 will never be caught in
