so strange a circumstance would have

would have felt at ease if lie. had heard

alKive and around him a netw ork of vines
had interwoven itself wilh the foliage of
a cluster of .-United trues; and, him-ell
secure from the range of mortal eye.-, he
could look out, through many little ciev-

and the valley.

here tiefore this; and he's not left, or I'd

Suddenly the tinkle of the hell was
heartl. The sound came from towards
tin1 falls, and looking tjuicklv in thai di

the stray animal, but the hell itself, il.inc
iug about in mid-air, in front ol the cata

witched, untitling fantastically, and appa
rently ringing itself !
At this weird spectacle, Jim fclttheold
dread creeping back upon him ; but it was
only for u a uiouicut. A new light shone
u)mui his face, and he cooly arose, cocked
his rille, leveled it through the foliage in
the direction of the falls, .itood niotioii-

The sharp report startled the quiet val

Jim did not move for several seconds;
then, thrusting aside a jnirtion of the
vines that concealed him, he sprang Inild
ly out upon a bare lock, waved his cap,
and uttered a loud and exultant shout.
For there was a com motion at the foot
of the cataract, and a dark object, streak
ed with red, eame up with the bubbles
and floated upon the water. It was the
body of a savage, in warrior's trappings,
hideous w ith w ar-paint, and ghastly u ilk
a fresher crimson.
He it was that had li-eu the Invisible
Foe of the settlers.
Sitting concealed in a cavern, licforc
which the cataract hung like a curtain,
he had lured the p.-.le-lce to destruction
by means of the bell, w hich lie bad tied
to a lisliing-rod and thrust out overaaWie

lint watchful Jim had pene

The savage had been alone in the per-

many a moon did the dark-vi-aged co

The htolea Portrait.
Nothing has been beard of the Gains
borough portrait of the duchess of De
vonshire, wklch was stolen two weeks
ago from tke okop of a London picture
dealer, who had recently paid nearly
$.w,000 for it. Gainsborough, though
probably the greatest of English land
scape painters, was occasionally compell
ed to try his hand on kunian subjects,
and when be did his triumphs were quite
as remarkable as those achieved In the
department w hich bis peculiar genius j
was best fitted to adoru. Ill iiortratt ol
Sarrk Siddons la one of tke loveliest gems
the iencH ever set on canvass. Tke mer
its of the lost portrait must be equally
marked, if we may jude by tke price it
brougkt- What tke thief is going to do
witk it is uot so apparent. He cannot
even skow, much less sell it to a picture
dealer or connoisseur; for it is well
known lo tke trade in Enrol and Amer
ica. His only safety is in keeping kis
ill-gotten prize under lock and key, or
destroying it altogetker neitber of wklch
plans willpuy kirn for tke risk ke lias in
curred. Tke origin of tke ortrait is still known
in fond tradition as "ike beautiful duchess
of Devonskire." Macaulay speaks of ker
in bis splendid description of the trial of
Warren Hastings :
"There was she, the beautiful mother
of a beautiful race; the St. Cecilia whose
features, lighted up with love and music,
art has rescued from the commod'decy;
there the ladies whose lips,
more persuasive than those of Fox him
self, carried the Westminster election
agalest palace and treasury, shone round
Georgiana, duchess ot Devonshire."
Tke coutc.-t alluded to was between
diaries James Vox and Horne Tooke for
a seat in parliament; and tke duchess, a
strong friend of Fax, displayed a talent
for electioneering as unique as it was
successful. Tke story goes tkat iu ker
search for votes she met a sturdy black
smith, wko, after listening to the argu
ments of tiie fair pleader, coolly inform
ed ker that nothing leas than a kiss could
win kis ballot. She did not hesitate au
instant, but raising herself on tip-toe,
gave ihe son of a sledge-hammer a
smacking salute from tke rosy lisof tke
handsomest woman iu England. It was
the duchess, we believe, who declared
that the finest compliment she ever re
ceived was from un Irish coal-heaver;
w ko steped to her carriage door and
said: "My lady, stop a minute, will ye,
and let uie light my pipe at yer eyes."
