"Ten years!" mused Frank; "what a
weary time to look on to, unless one is antic
ipating a happy future."
Day alter day' until the last hoar :t up,
had I shrunk lrora bidding farewell to Let
tice. Then I just went to her, as I bad gone
many times before, standing and chatting
idly in the pretty room where wc had olten
been so gay tdgD'her.
"If Frank is to drive here for you in time

"And yet it Is a long good-hy," added Lat

"and a world which even yet I have not
" But you expect to do so in Melbourne ?"
" I hone so. '
With an odd little laugh she changed the
subject ; and very soon Frank drove up to
the gate. Mr. Oldfield antt Amy went ont
and stood beside the dorcart. talking to him.
while I followed more slowly. Lettice came
with me, and stood a minute under the
bare old nme tree, witn tne winter sun
shine on her bright face. And I looked
down upon her knew that this picture
would dwell in my heart through all ray
Her jesting scorn was all gone now ; only
her eyes were a little puzzled, and a little
"You will be quite happy, Mar," she
said, '-with that happiness which make
others happy too."
"Tell me how, Lettice," I cried, the
strong and passionate love of my heart
trembling in my voice. "Tell me how to
win this happiness."
" I cannot," she answered softly. " I can
not teach yon what you know so well."
' Lettice," I said, ' my one deare3t friend,
tills is the last moment. Give me some
few words of help to take with me as a
sister would have given them to me."
Very softly, while her clear, sweet eyes
looked bravely into mine, she whispered
the little verse, 'which has been ever with
me since, and has helped me often, as her
voice conld help me In those far-oil days :
There Is a cross in every lot.
And an earnest need orpravcr:
But a lonely heart tbat leans on tiotl
Is nappy everywhere.
From the gate I looked back wistfally to
where sho still stood under tho winter
branches, and she smiled one bright, quick
smile and ran in.
Then I sat down beside Frank, and Amy
sprang up, and gave mc, with tear-filled
eyes, the onlp kiss among ail my sad good

So. upon a bright spring morning, Frank
and I met once more in England ; and tired
with a tiredness which I had never felt be
fore, I rested that evening in my own chair
beside the cheery home lire; striving to
look uack joyiuuy into my nrotner s beam
" You are very tired, Max," mUl Frank,
in his ouick. clad tones.
" A little ; but I was thinking how ut ierly
content you iook, ! raiuc."
" So I ought to, ought I not ? because I am
so utterly content. Do I look cliajiged in
any other way ;'
" Xo, none."
"Sol look utterly content, do I? vet I
have had trouble too. You ought to iayyeu
seethe traces, Max.-'
" What trouble has it been?" I a?kcd.
"A trouble of five years ago, Max," he
answered quietly; "a trouble I never felt
that I could tell you in a letter. When I
first asked Lettice to be my wife she she ro-
luseu me. Aiax."
" I feared so, Frank," I said, so low tliathe
stepped forward to catch tho words. "I
feared so from your silence at that time.
But never mind, dear fellow, as it has ended
" Xo, I don't mind now one atom. It has
ended so brightly, as yon say.-'
It seemed like a dream to be walking once
more at ranK's siue on tno snaaowv street:
and still more like a dream to be entering
unnoticed, the pretty, familiar room, where
i.ctuco sat aionc at tne window sewing in
"Lettice." cried Frank, in gay eagerness,
I wa3 standing opposite her, Iookieg down
upon her with still, calm eyes ; the grave,
elder brother of her affianced husband. She
dropped her work, and put her two hands
into mine In quick, glad greeting; and I
spoke to her just as I knew Frank would
wish mo to speak to her ; watching all the
while his face a? well as hers. She wa3 chang
ed more than he was. The face tbat bad
been, almost child-like in its sunny beauty
was a woman's face now; deeper and grav
er, but Infinitely moro beautiful, I thought,
as I saw its old bright, sunny smilo still
there. She looked up at Frank, a wonderful
light shining In her eyes.
" Now you have all you wiih, Frank," she
said. And I felt that she was a3 happy in
his love as he was In hers. I stood, beside
thcci, talking iu laughing genial tones ; hop
ing that she could never guess how hardly I
had schooled myself to this.
Presently Frank passed out through the
open window, and Lottice, looking after
him. raised her eyes nucstioningly to me.
"You thinK us all changed, I suppose,
Max. Even Frank?'
" Yes." I answered absently.
" But have you not seen sister Amy yet,"
she went on, smiling. "She of course Is
most changed of all. Frank Is gone to
fetch her, I fancy. He says she is like what
I was at her age, bnt that is only his pleas
ing flattery, for she is very, very pretty."
I followed her words dreamily, wondering
whether it really could bo seve n years since
Lettice and I stood talking to each other
last, while I felt how impossible it was that
the little one whom wc had all combined to
pet and spoil could be at all what Lettice
was in those sweet old days.
'Frank seemed to know exactly where
flic would be," Lettice went on, a little ner
vously, I fancied in my sllenco. " You re
member the low old seat under the lilacs,
Max? Amy is as found of sitting there as
I used to be when I was hex age. You used
to say, too, that you loved to rest there on a
Summer evening; but you have been away
so loag, doing so much, that those old
ineinnrifovill be all hurried now?"
" Ye. They arc all hurried," I answer
ed, feeling the scarlet mount into my face
to contradict the coolness of my words.
Sho smiled a little wistful smile, which
had a strange, brave tenderness in it.
' I too have lived seven years since then,"
Mie said ; " but the old memories arc dear
to me, Max, and I would not bury them for
all the world."
" Because it is so different with yon and
me," I faltered. "I I think I have no
courage left. How long Frank stays."
" I see them in the lower garden now,"
she answered gently, looking away from
mc as I struggled with my pain.
" How quickly Amy would have run into
irrect me m the old times," I said, speaking
once more as I had schooled myself to do;
only tbat a little bitterness would creep into
" Yes," IaugheilJjCttico, softly, " but she
will not come this evening without Frank.
She asked me to-day If you would think
Frank had chosen unwisely because she is
so much younger than ho is; so ignorant
and untried, she 6ald."
In the bewildered, breathless sileuce
which lollowcd Lettlce's words she looked
up at wc: deep shadows gathered in her
eyes, as if sho too felt the agony oi the
doubt and hopo which stirred mc.
"Do you think Frank has chosen
wisely, Max, in taking my little sister?" she
asked, speaking plainly the truth, which she
knew now that I had never heard.
" Lettice Lettice, is it so. "I stammered,
my fingers tight upon the chair below me,
and ray heart beating wildly.
"Yes, Max, "she answered, "it Is so."
And I knew she could read the whole story
of my deep and lasting love written in my
" And you, Lettice?"
" I," she answered, in a bright, low tone
" I have waited."
Then I covered my face hurriedly, for
boyish tears had overflowed my eyes 'in the
untold joy of this surprise.
"Max, "she wlspcred, her gentle touch
upon my arm, "I thought you knew this,
and had come for their sakes. "
"No, not for their sakes, Lettice; for
Frank's and yours."
" Why for my sake ?" she asked, tears
shining in her own eyes as she looked
brightly into mine.
Then low and brokenly, I told her of my
love ; the long, hopeless lave which would
not die. And at last she answered, with
her little gentle hands ton mine, and a
deep, true gladness shining behind the
" Max. dear Max, I am very glad that I
" Max, " said Frank, that night after wo
got home, "may I have thi old plate put
back upon the door?"
Wc both laughed at the Idtri, for Frank
was Dr. Hamilton now, and I had half a
dozen letters after ray nunc, but we took a
candle and went ofT at once to find It.
Frank sitting down and taking it upon hi
knee brushing the thick dust from it quite
tenderly; while I, leaning over hU shoulJ
cr, read the letters as he cleaned.

A great many times during tbe n.ist fil
teen or twenty years, lhave had occasion to
regard a rustication of 6ix months, for the
crime oi "nazmg" common to all military
schools, a3 one of the most fortunate cir
cumstances of a rather eventful career. It
was a peremptory leave of absence of thU
sort which led metospenda scmestroat
uie university oi .icna, ami to learn some
thing of German student life. 1 recall that
brief period now for Uie purpose of showing
a ;phase of the daily lite of Jena, aud to
speak of one particular student who was. nt
that time, considered the brilliant man of
tne university. Among more than 1,500,
H-- n was looked upon as a man of most
remarkable promise. He was the pride of
uie uurgKciiars, jour section ot the Bur
schenschaft) and the special a m of tho best
men among our greatest enemies, the Tito
nes. He was the best singer, the best
piano-player, the best waltzer, the b?st
sehlaagcr, the best beer-drinker, and with
all these accomplishments very great or:ea
In the studentsf eyes he was the quickest
hand at everything In the way ot'woik,
from Greek verse to n calculation of an
eclipse. He graduated with the highest
honors. Even the professors had great
hope in hla future, and we gave him a fete
at parting which Is even now recounted to
freshmen among the legends of the Univer
sity. Leaving his black, red and gold band,
covered with the record of his duels, to the
society, to be duly preserved at Zelgenheim,
II n went awav. currvlnn1 ihp hrnrfi .t
his friends, a large stoek of University lore,
and the most beautiful scar across his fore
head that a student ever had the good for
tune io receive, r.veryuouy predicted for
him a high nnrac in literature or in the di
plomatic world; but years passed and
II n'a name wa3 not seen upon thn cov
er of any book, nor read In the bulletins
Two great wars caaio to make the name
aud fortune of many, but II n was not
among the number. There was hut one
inference, for had II n been alive such
talents as hU would have mado their mark
in tho world. Three days ago I was stroll
ing up the boulevards, when I stumbled upon
two editorial friends from New Orloans, lust
in from Germany. Hardly had I left them
when my attention wasdrawn to an immense
porcelain pipe, to which a pemivo man was
attached, and one glance at the scar upon
his brow carried mo back to the Saalc, and
to our student daysat Jena. It was indeed,
H n.but not the II ni had expected
to meet. It wa3 not without a feeling of re
sentment a feeling that ho had cleverly
swindled us all that I had listened to his
story, and learned that H n had just re
turned to the French capital to resume his
business of letting pianos, or of selling thein
by payments of so much a month. But
this was not all of the adventure, and wc
soon learned tho danger of using the Ger
man tongue in Paris. I have already re
marked t bat a favorite amusement is to hunt
down German officers, and before wc were
awaie of the fact a crowd had gathered be
hind us . Knowing the character of French
crowds, when only fifty or one hundred
to one. we were justified in fearing a paving
stone in the back, and it was with pleasure,
therefore, tbat wc saw two or three gendar
mes hurrying down upon us. Fortunately
my own passport sufficed to satisfy the offic
ers, who sent tho crowd. awayrby telling
them that if they did not know the Ameri
can language from the Prussian, they'd bet
ter go back to school and Icam. A few sus
picious men in white blouses were not qulto
satisfied than we were speaking the "Amer
ican tongue." however, and still ban? about
the spot, but we choc the better prt of
valor by making an orderly retreat.' Wo
know that Parlo is a recentacla for men of
all nations and for disappointed ambitions,
but who could havo imagined tbat our bril
liant H n woald ono day be a riano-dealer
in this greit French city. X Y. Times Paris
Europeau advices state tbat the project Is
revived of constructing a submarine tunnel
under tho Strait of Dover, to connect by
a railroad Dover In England with Calais In
France. The distance between the two
places is twenty-one miles, and the mall
boats make the run in from SO to 00 minutes.
Though tho journey is not long, its discom
forts have been a wailing theme for tourists
of all countries. Th Strait, from joining
the British Channel with the North Sea, is
subject to a nastv chopping sea, which In
times of bad weather Is lashed up into such
a perfect foaming as to make the passage
somewhat dangerous. Hence this snortsea
trip Is looked upon in the light of the hor
rors of tho " middle passage," and the joys
and delights of a month's trip on the Con
tinent, or In the British Isles, are all effaced
by the recollections of tho nauseating sick
ness sullcrcd In passing from Dover to Ca
lais, and vice versa.
About four years since the practicability
of constructing such a tunnel was mooted,
and received the approval of the French
Emperor. An International Committee,
composed of eminent engineers of both
Franco and England, was formed, who
made a favorable report to Napoleon on the
subject. Subsequently the plans received
the indorsement of the eminent English en
gineers, J. Hawkshaw, J. Brnnlcss and W.
Low, and also Talabot, Chevalier and Gou
noud. of France. Tho French ministry,
viewing the matter as an International ques
tion, opened negotiations with the British
cabinet, as to the contributions that each
nation should make to tho undertaking.
The matter was discussed in tho papers, and
the only obstacle raised wa3the difficulty
of keeping up a proper system of Ventila
tion. The Franco-German war came, and in
definitely postponed tho matter; but tbo
Thiers government havo again revived It.
The opening of tho Mont Cents tunnel has
dispelled all the theories as to Imperfect
ventilation, and now nothing remains but
to find the money for tbe work. Tho esti
mates place the cost at fifty millions of dol
lars, and one argument used in its favor is,
that it forms part of tbe project which is to
place England In direct railroad communi
cation with its Indian posscssioni. In an
swer to the apprehension tbat there Is dan
ger from a rush of sea water In such a tun
nel, tho reply is made that tho coal mines
of Cumberland and Northumberland run for
DTeat distances under tho tea. and these, with
their galleries, arc many times the distance
between Dover and Calais.
The modern plan ol tunneling under wa
ter, as successfully tested in a subway under
tho Thames, that of constructing the tunnel
of wrought iron tubing, has been mentioned
In thlsconnection as better and cheaper than
brick. The cuttings through tho chalky
stratum which Is knewn to exist between
England and France will be mere child's
play as compared with the rocky material
which has been carved through at Mont
Cents, and it is calculated that the work will
onlv occunv four vears In construction. It
will not be surprising to find the project I
taken in hand by European capitalists, so ,
strong Is the tendency everywhere apparent ,
to onng mc cnoe oi uic carin logemcr, in
spite of mountains, oceans and seas.
SoTtrrnnim Lights. We have heard of
the northern lights, or aurora borcalis, but
we sre not in the habit of reflecting that the
same phenomenon Is to bo seen in the
southern hemisphere, where it ;is called the
southern light. In order to establish a re

tho north aud soutb, and to prove that there
is a perfect coincidence and simultaneous

pheres. Professor Hels. ot Munster, has en

tors of observatories at various stations in
Australia and tbe East, aud has been able
to collect much lute resting and novel Itifor -
matloa, which may serve as data In the so
lution of the question of the probablu orig
in of this class of phenomena.
From records ki ptln 1670, Itappears that
Uic aurora of Uic 8Ui of January was ob

were noted, on the 4th of January, in Mel

and England. Tho southern light of Feb

there w'as not a month In which coincident
