His Last Voyage
[Original.]
"Bl'ace up, little woman. It distresses
me to see you crying as If your heart
would break. Have I not told you that
this is to be my last voyage?"
Mary Perkins had a presentiment
that her husband would never complete
this last voyage. Nevertheless, after
his departure, she busied herself as
usual looking forward to her first letter
to be sent from the first port he was to
touch, Thla should reaeb her in about
twenty days. She was a favorite in
the town where she lived, and her
neighbors, knowing of her forebodings,
did what they could to encourage her.
"How nice it will be, Mrs. Perkins,
when John comes home to stay. I wish
my old man had the same prospect be
fore him. But I fear he '11 be a sailor
all his days, God help him!" "Cheer
up, Mrs. Perkins. Remember this is
your husband's last voyage.". In this
vein tiiey talked till twenty days had
passed. Then, when there was no let
ter, they said: "Wait. You can't expect
him to write the minute he reaches
port, and if he does there is not likely
to be a ship coming back tha same day
to
bring the letter." On", two, three
days passed, and they were obliged to
change their inferences. "They say the
winds have been dead ahead for ships
coming from that quarter. The mail
has been delayed."
Months passed. John Perkins' ship,
the Albatross, had not reached her first
port, nor second, nor her third. The
kind hearted people invented all sorts
of stories for the captain's wife, but In
their hearts they believed his ship had
gone to the bottom, and all on board
had been lost
"I knew it," said the agonized wom
an. "Something within told me that
there would be misfortune on this voy
age. The ship is gone down. My man
will never come to me again." And
she, wept in the midst of her children,
who strove to kee'p back her tears by
Winding their arms about her and ca
ressing her. "What a pity," the neigh
bors all said to each other, "to think
that he should have gone down on the
last voyage!"
When four months had passed and
not a word was reported of the Alba
tross, Mary Perkins' neighbors ceased
to console her. There was no hope,
they said, and it would be better for
her to give up John Perkins for lost
than to be continually looking for him
to return who would never return, to
be straining her eyes over the water
for days, then succumbing to parox
ysms of grief then watching again
and breaking down again. If she did
not desist her mind would go. And,
oh, bow her children watched and
waited and told their mother that they
had dreamed father had come back,
and they had a '"feeling" that the
dream would come true.
At last Mary's friends began to think
it would be no gain to her to have her
husband return. They feared that the
Intensity of relief might either kill her
or dethrone a mind so nearly worn out
Had it not been that they felt sure he
would never come they would have
kept watch for him to prevent her
meeting him suddenly unawares. Mean
while her little ones, wearied of keep
ing her up with prophecies, mutely saw
her slowly fading away.
One morning little Billy, the youn
gest boy, aged four, threw his arms
around his mother and said:
"Oh, mammy, I dreamed last night
that the Albatross came sailing Into
the hacbor, and papa stood on the
deck giving the orders, and they le'go
the anchor, and papa came ashore and
kissed us all."
Such words had grown to have a con
trary effect from encouragement In
deed, they only induced a greater de
spondency. Mary embraced the boy
in a paroxysm of tears, and his elder
sister forbade him to tell bis mother
his dreams again.
The spring came, the trees put forth
their leaves and the children begged
their mother to take them to spend the
day on their grandfather's farm, a few
miles inland. They drove there in a
four seated wagon and after visiting
with the cows, the horses, the chick
ens, which all children love, in the
evening they started back. It was
dusk before they reached the village,
and in every house shone a light.
"Oh, mamma," said little Billy, "see,
there's a light in our house! Maybe
papa has come while we've been
away."
Tears came to the mother's eyes, and
the eldest girl placed ber hand over
the boy's mouth.
But who bad lighted their lamp? No
one had been instructed to do so.
Doubtless some neighbor had kindly
interfered to prevent their coming to
their home to find it dark. When they
drove up to the door a figure reached
out a pair of strong arm:} to help them.
The light shining through the open
door was on his back, and his face was
left in shadow. Nevertheless Mary
Perkins uttered the cry:
"John!" Her husband bore her unconscious
into the house, clogged by his children
clinging to him and endeavoring to
climb up to kiss him. He laid his wife
tenderly on a couch, and in a moment
she had recovered her consciousness.
Cases in which the brain suffers
from joy are not of long duration.
Mary Perkins soon recovered sufficient
ly to hear her husband's narrative. It
was the oft repeated story of a ship
wrecked sailor being picked up at sea
and carried to a distant larH. The
voyage was two months out a.id two
months back, and there was no way
of communicating except by ship,
John Perkins remained at home, in
vesting his savings in marine Insur
ance, from which he had benefited in
the case of his lost ship, and became
a rich man.

ivew Torn, March 5.Advices tc
cal houses having connections at Lima
state that though the earthquake was
the severest in many years no lives
are reported to have been lost The
principal damage was caused by the
cracking of the walls of business and
residential structures.
Lima is somewhat subject to earth
quakes. The most destructive was in
1746, when more than 1,000 persons
perished and the city was nearly de
stroyed. It was also the scene of
earthquakes in 1586. 1630, 1687, 1806.
1828, 1897 and 1901. There was no loss
of life as a result of the earthquakes
of the last two years mentioned.
