It was one of the cheapest of "nn
painied,? redwood houses, long since
turned black by the rains of Home
forgotten California winter, but over
ihe door and under the window
clambered a luxuriant rosebush with
shining leaves and clustering bunches
of some tiny rose which had a spicy
fragrance, faint and sweet as some far
away pleasant memory:
Jn the little garden which sloped
down to the road were a lew flowers;
few enough to be tended by one pair
of hands, and showing loving nurture
by their rank and beautiful blosoms.
"Margaret!" called a feeble..fretful
piece from somewhere within the
Margaret was in the small garden;
a small girl, will? a soft bloom on her
rounded checks, and a pair of hazel,
electrical eyes; not pretty-?far'from
it?but a woman who drew hearts to
herself as a magnetdoes iron Illings;
you felt it when you met her eyes.
She bad been tending heir plants,
and even now held in her fingers a
half opened blood red rose; she was
stand'ng in the narrow pathj looking
too tall for her small and mean sur
rutuling.?, and ga: 'nig down the dusty
and ugly road, now at its dustiest and
"Margaret !*' again called the
querulous voice; you could easily be

lb go in; and yet one could see but a
dusly horseman on adtisly horse coin

and raised his hat with a citified
Margaret blushed and smiled, and
' uttered poir.eil'ingunintelligible,
i "How is your mother to-day?"
I askul the euS'alicr;
".Shout the same, thank yo*.i." She
spoke but clearly, ihen. and a ringing.
; ehanu'iig voice she had.
Mure commonplaces followed,
about the weather, t'.io dusty road,
the b.ill that wits coining oil in Mo
I Kuitrvji barn, and then the feeble
voice wailed again :
?"Margaret, Margaret 1" She start
ed guiltily, as though she had not
beard iL before. "Excuse me," she
i-.'iid, "mother is (.ailing inc."
"At least/'" said the horseman, "be
slow that beautiful rose upon me."
She went down to Uicgarden fence
Mid handed it to him. and somehow,
whether it was handed too hastily, or
laken too awkwardly, the vicious
thorn ran into her linger, and made
her 'Jve a litile half cry of pain. He
held her hand then, saying :
"What a shame! I was so awk
ward ! May I cure it in my mother's
way, MUS Margaret?"
She Know;she guessed.and hcknew
she did; but she said quickly?he
thought her voice a very sweet.one?
'What was your mothers way ?"
I hen in 1 he same breath : "Yes, if it
is a good one."
And the foolidi blood from Mar
g;uet Lily's' heart thrilled in every
vein when he stooped by hishorso's
lu .id. lind kissed the hurt linger again
'?Margaretj" came the feeble voice.
Oh! Mr. Cranbourne 1" she cried.
"Jjct mc go; I must ge into mother."
j Mi. Cranbourne let tho lingers go,
I and smiled a queer smile as he watch
ed her go up the path in her free,
swinging graceful way.
He smiled a queer smile for some
minulcs as he dantered down the
dusty road; poor Margaret, with her
open heart, would not havo likod it
could she have seen it on his face; the
.smile on hers was wonderfully differ
ent as she opened the low door and
went into the little parlor.'
'?Whatever has kept you so long?"
said her moth?)', a fretful, palsied,
und partly paralyzed woman, not
' very old, but looking oil.
Li IV. ' he said.
"Forgive me, mother d;ar," said
Margaret, stooping to kiss her?her
heart wuR full of strange and blissful
peace; "1 am sorry I kept you waiting,
but Mr. Cranbourne was at the gate."
"And who's Mr. Cranbourne, who
keeps you from your mother? Are
you going to marry him ?"
"Oh! mother, don't!" she said,
eutrcutingly, yet somewhat with a
queer half-passionate hopo thrilling
through her; "I scarcely know him,
you know. He boards at Mattic's,
and I have only met him twice
"What docs he look like ?" said the
mother, with a half proud, half jeal
ous t'mo in her quavering voice; she
remembered very well, although she
did not think it needful to tell Mar- 1
garet, that Maltic Holmes had
"teased" her daughter on the con:
quod- she had made, and she jumped
at the conclusion that Margaret was 1
ill love with the stranger, and the
stranger was in love with .Margaret?
did not all the men fall in love with
her? lint her guess was less than half J
the truth, for Margaret was not quite
in love, and the stranger?be bad
seen a great deal of the world, and
had riot come to this little half civi
lised California town to find a wife,
even if her voice was sweet and her
eyes full of magnetic light.
Margaret made no answer; she
shook and turned the pillow under
her mother's bead, changed the foot
rest, and went to the well and drew
lor the invalid a glass of water from
the ''coldest corner."
"Thanks, dear," she said.
"Forgive me, mother," said Mar
garet, wistfully, as she took the glass.
"Yes." was the reply, a trifle im
patient; "but tell me what he looks
like." : " " ? i ' * '
"How can I ?" she replied. "I never
can describe peop'e, mother."
"You could describe Gomez well
enough when you first saw hin. was
"Well," said Margaret, the bloom
deepening on her rounded cheeks, "he
has black eyes, 1 think."
"Is he lall P
"N no," hesitated Margaret, "I
" is he handsome ?"
"Yes 1" ? she answered, promptly?
"at least all the girls think so."
"Do you l hink so ?"
"Y-ycs," she hesitated again, "I
think so, mother. There comes
Gomez was a 4 Greaser," dark skin
lied and undersized. His devotion to
tall, fair Margaret Lily was the joke
of the neighborhood, and very funny
to all but the two chiefly concerned.
Margaret was sorry; and Gomez,
knowing he might ns well be in love
with the princess of the moon, was in
despair. Nevertheless, ho had accept
cd with delight an oiler to milk the
cow, attend to the kitchen garden,
and do odd chores about the little,
black house; did he not by that means
see his divinity twice a day ?
Margaret handed him the milk pail,
and proceeded to build the fire for
supper; dreaming over her work the
plcasantest dreams that had ever
risen in her heart to make her happy.
Ralph Cranbourne's queer' smile
would have broadened and lingered
if ho could have known; her face
looked so full of peaeo that Goruez sat
upon the woll curb to smoke his
cigarette, whero he could watch her;
he always liked to watch her cooking
supper"; perhaps he dreamed queer
di cams too.
Sometimes Margaret caught a
glimpse of his black eye?, and turned
back to her labor with a vaguo mi
tnsiucsv; sho wished for a moment
that they lived nearer the little town,
or had nearer neighbors whero the}'
were; for Gomez did not bear tho best
of reputations, and was suspected of
riding at night in strange company for
an honest man.
When supper was ready sho wheel
ed in hor mother's chair, and Gomez
came to the door, said in a brief
"adios," and departed.
"When docs tho ball come oil ?"
asked the mother,
"Arc you going?"
?'If Mrs; Mill can conic to stay with
you, I would Jike to."
"What will you wear?"
"I have -little enough," replied
Margaret, "but I must make that lit
"Your white dress?"
She nodded; then .?igbcd : ' If we
were not so pour."
"You'll have beaux o tough," an
swered the mother, and strange to say
the words grated on Margaret's ear,
and she managed to change the sub
Yet it was true enough; the limp
while drcss-f Siarch was not an article
in common use in Lost Chance dig
gings?oiling to her shapely form, and
made her look goddess-like in the eyes
of her admirers; to the contrary, not
withstanding Miss Tonipkins' remark :
?'That drcss jooks like a rag."
The womejii who sat upon the rough
benches around MeKinlry's barn bore
little love to Margaret; her only de
fender was flattie Holmes. Years
ago, when little Joe hud walked out
nearly to the end of the dizzy plank
whicli had been used in some primi
tive way for raising hay into ihe b ira
loft, Margaret's eyes anil Margaret's
smile had won him back, and the
spring of gratitude bubbled up in
Maltie's heart ever after; all the more
because Hi tie Joe had sickened and
died the summer alter and no one
could do aught for him again.
When Ci;anbournu first met Mar
garet aud evidently felt the charm of
her eyes, Mallic told him this story,
and it lingered in his memory, so that
every time he saw her there were
moments th t he fancied that he saw
in her lacothe same look which had
coaxed the little boy back faoni his
perilous place, when one startled word
would have caused bis death.
At the close of the bull (hanbouruu
asked Mallic how her friend was
going to get home.
"?Father and I syc going with her,"
was the answer.
"Won't 1 do as well ?" he asked,
eoaxingly. "Your father don't want
to take that long walk."
"Of course you will," said Maggie,
delighted. "I'll tell pa."
Margaret's cheeks and eye? lighted
up alike when ho asked her, and a
smothered thought went fioin her
heart to heaven?albeit MeKinlry's
barn was hardly the place to pray in
?"Thank you, my Father."
And when, the walk over, she went
into her liny room, she fell upon her
knees with a feeling that she had
never dreamed of before, ' Oh, my
Faihcv, il it eon Id be !"
And so the weeks slipped into
months, and Margaret began to feel
that youth and love made up the sum
of life; she could have fallen down
and kissed his very footprints when
be went away from the collage door;
and one nig ht he put his anus around
her and told her that be loved her.
The "strange company" in which
Gomez had been suspected of riding
had become strung and daring; house
after house had been surrounded, the
men and women lied or shot, and the
contents rilled. A1 nut hier of peculiar
atrocity committed by these Spanish
bandits had caused the formation of a
vigilance committee, in which was
enrolled the, name of eve ry able bodied
man in LastChance diggings aud the
neighborhood. ('ran bourne, who had
come there in search id*novelty and
excitement, was among tho first to
volunteer, and tho very next day they
wero to good'upon their lirst quest.
Margaret had trembled for his safo
ty. He could see so plainly that she
loved him. and it was so pleasant to
feel that somebody would watch, und
wish, tltitl weep for him w hile he was
in danger, that be did a cruel and
cowardly thing?he put his arms
around her, kept her close to his heartj
and told her that be loved bor.
And sho went back to bor room
when ho had gono, fell upon her
knees, and folt that God had been too
good to her?she never had deserved
They came back after a few days,
having seen nothing und done noth
ing, though they had heard much.
IVrhiips Cranbourne felt somo
twinges of conscience, for he resolved
not to go near Margaret after his ro
liirii; yet. as chance would have it,
she. was at Ma I tic's the very afternoon
they rode in, and he walked home
with her, and her eyes drew him to
her, and his resolution was gone to
Then the weeks sped by again, only
to;j quickly. Margaret? bought of him,
dreamed of him, lived her very life in
his lifo, and felt that before she had
existed, but now she lived indeed.
He came otlen to the black cottage
with its wreathing rosebush, and
lingered long.within it;and the gossips
of .Last Chance diggings laughed or
sneered, as they were good or ill na
?s for Gomez, he smoked his cigar
ci tes still where he cotild see into the
kitchen, and looked upon Ralph Cran
bourne with an iulc.nso hatred burning
in b;s deep sct^cyes; hut Gomez kept
his own conn-el and perhaps thought
his time would como.
Cra.ibourne lavished upon Mar
garet all ttie loving epithets, all the
winning, tender ways of which he was
master; and she, who had lived all her
bfe in country towns of which Last
Chance diggings was a fail specimen,
who bad seen honest miners by the
hundred, and vulgar .refined men by
the score, whose lovers had been too
devoted and too familiar, was en
thralled; she di I not think, or care to
think, how mauy times the poor play
bad been rehearsid before. She felt a
vaguo wonder, someLimcs, when he

was tied; he promised to claim her as
soon as he should he free, und whisper
ed : "i'iustine, my pearl. Can you

Her love was so thoroughly trust

To Margaret it seemed that she was
living all hor yiars in tho hush before
the storm. ' If bo had butgoue away

Again the vigilance committee
gathered its forces,and again.Ralph
Craribournh came to say "G ood-bye,"
the night befor they started .
Rut Margaret was bitter? she who
had never been biltorin her life?-and
be said, as he held her limp hand in
his at the gate; "Your would not

"1 wish I never had seen you," she
said, snatching her hand away, and
covering her face.
He caressed her, southed hor, calm
ed away the present seuso of trouble;
for she loved him, woman like, not
less, but more for her sacrifice.
A nd all the time a pair of deep-set,
wicket looking eyes watched them
through a paling in tho dil papidated
fence. Once Cianbourne started, and
fancied that ho heard a sound not
made by the night wind, but he was
not given to borrowing trouble, and
cast the thought by.

"Pet" KTames in Public.
Lord Dufferin, in nu address before
the female normal school in Qjucbco
the other day, said : I observe that
it is an almost universal practice up
on this continent, even on public
occasions, in prize lists, roll-calls,and
in tho intercourse of general society
for young ladies to be alluded to by
their casual acquaintances, uay oven
in the newspapers, by what in the old
country we would call their "pet"
names?that is to say, those caressing,
sollt appellations of endearment witU
which their fathers and brothers, and
those which arc nearest to them,
strive to give expression to the yearn
ing affection felt for them in the h.9tno
circle. Now, it seems to me tobe a
monstrous sacrilege, nud quite in
compatible with the dignity and self
respect due to the daughters of our
land," and with the chivalrous rever
ence with which they should be ap
proached, even in thought, that tho
tender, love invented nomenclature
of the firesMe should be baudied
about at random in the mouths of
every empty headed Tom, Dick and
Harry on the street whose idle tongue
may choose to babble of them. For
instance, in the United States, before
her marriage, I observed that Miss
Grant, the daughtervof the occupant
of the most, august position in the
world, was generally referred to in
the newspapers as "Nellie," as though
the paragraph ist who wrote the item "*1
had been her playfellow from infancy;
and even Lady Dufferin, I, see, has
become '?Kate" in tho elegant phrase
ob gy of a United States magazine?
though how Kate could have been
elicited from her excellency's real
Christian name I don't know. Of
course, this is a small matter to which
I have alluded, bul it is not without
significance when regarded as a
A Remarkable Oat Story
The following la told by the
Mobci ly (Mo.) Enterprise-Monitor;
One of tho strongest incidents that
has ever fallen under our observation
transpired at the Virgiuia Hotel in
this city, Mr. French, a member of
a dramatic troup playing an engage
ment in this city, was the victim. He
retired to rest at au early hour, aud
soon fell into a deep slumbor. After
the lapse of an hour or two he was
aroused by a feeling of overpowering
oppressiveness and suffocation, and
was horrified to find that a huge cat
was silling on his breast, and had its
hoad inserted in his mouth sucking
away his breath. He found himself
in an almost exhausted condition, fo
much so that he was unable to shake
off the vampire fiend attacking him.
Strugglo as ho would, tho cat only
fastened its claws the deeper into his
chest, and went on with its horriblo
feast. His groans andorios of agony,
however, fortunately brought some
neighboring lodgors to his roliof, and
ho was rescued from his frightful
position. Even then thoy were com
pelled to turn him out of bed and
roll him over and over on tho floor
before the cat could bo made to re.
