A Mystery of the Sea and the Romance
of a Wreck.

N a bright morning
in the middle of the
month of August,
who had been trav
eling for several
years, found him
self, in company with his fellow passen
gers, eagerly watching the approaching
shores of his native land from the deck
of a South American steamer. In due
time the steamer reached her dock, and
a day or two later Beckweth was with
bis aunt at Rockberg,. on the New En
Although the first summer residence
of Rockberg had been erected for near
ly thirty years, but a dozen establish
ments of a similar kind had ever fol
lowed it. This was chiefly owing to
the fact that Rockberg was situated
somewhat off the beaten line of travel,
and but few persons had as yet dis
covered its attractiveness. To persons
of quiet tastes and habits, such as were
the summer residents of the village,
there was much there to excite their
admiration as they looked about them
from the sightly location of their dwell
ings on the cliffs. Before them stretched
the ever-changing, ever restless, deep
blue ocean, on whose surface could be
seen the white sails of the ships pass
ing in the distance to and from the far
away port to the south.
At one time, perhaps, the constantly
changing shades of light on the sails of
the yachts, coast-bound craft and the
fishing fleet that passed close in shore
would attract an observer's attention ;
while another moment it would be the
long column of smoke, appearing
at first like- a light cloud against the
sky, that heralded the approach of the
in-bound ocean steamer sometime be
fore its long dark hull was visible above
- the horizon.
At the foot of the cliff nestled the
little village with its white cottages,
and neatly-kept flower and vegetable
gardens. Beyond, bounded on either
side by the main road and the edge
of the beach, was the long row of fish,
houses, in which, in stormy weather,
many a tale of shipwreck and danger
was told while busy hands overhauled
for repairs the various appliances, by.
the aid of which the men of Rockbcrg
forced their living from the sea. These
fish-houses, with the boats hauled up
in front of them out of the reach of
'the tide, although certainly not beau
tiful in themselves, added a bit of
character to the scene, wiiile the pict-'
ure of the village as a whole was far
Back from the cliff could be ~seen
ranges of small hills, on whose sides
'were scattered here and there a few
stunted fir trees and cedars. These
hills, extending from the shore in to
the distant inland, formed the bound
aries of several small fertile plains,'
which. were generally cultivated by
hard-working, industrious men of semi
amphibious habits, who divided their
time, according to the season, between
farming and fishing.
All this, together with the pleasing
contrast between the crisp brown grass
of the hills and the dark, rich verdure
of the valleys, the occasional orchards
and elm trees, from behind whose foli
age a farm-house was visible here and
there-the whole. backed by gray and
partially wooded hills in the far dis
tance-made a scene of considerable
Mr. Jabez Horton had been amongs
the first to make his summer residence
amid these surroundings. After his.
death, his widow not only continued to
go there, but found its quiet and beau
ty so congenial that her stay each
season was of longer duration than
that of any of the other summer vis
Mrs. Horton had now reached that
time of life, just turning into the "sere
and yellow leaf," when the heart leans
most depeindently on those upon whom
it has learned to set its affections. For
many years bereaved of husband and
children, the full wealth of her natural
ly loving disposition had been be
stowed upon her only nephew, Arthur
Beckweth. To himi was given the first
place in her thoughts and affections;
but he was by no means the only one
who had reason to eherish her love and
esteem, for the measure of her tender
sympathy and love was boundless. Of
late a strong natural regard and
friendship sprang up between her and
M.iss Kate Denham, a young lady
whom she had found in the city, sur
annue4 h~v safaeee. a large circle of'
acquaintances and admirers, but with
out a single known relative.
The acquaintance between these two
had been formed during Beckweth's
absence from home; when, however,
the latter arrived at Rockberg, he
found Miss Denham a visitor there in
Mrs. Horton's little household.
In answer to Beckweth's inquiries,
his aunt explained to him how utterly
alone in the world Miss Denham was,
"She is a lovely young lady, and I
have quite learned to love her! I had
serious fears," she continued, "when I
first brought her here, that she would
find it too dull. I have once or twice
had some young people down from the
city, thinking their company would
make an agreeable change for her,
but she seems full as contented
and happy when alone with me.
She appears to be an extraor
dinary person in many ways. Now,
please to try, Arthur, for my sake."
she concluded, "not to wholly ignore
the presence of Miss Denham. Forego
busying yourself completely in your
ARTHUR MEETS MISS DENHAM.
usual occupations, while here, of fish
ing, yachting or riding. Iwant you to
help me entertain her, for, notwith
standing what I have said about her
apparent contentment. there are times
when I think I detect in her a quiet
sadness which I can not understand."
Beckweth soon settled into the quiet
ways of his aunt's little household.
With the exception of a drive every
pleasant forenoon with his Aunt Alice,
as Mrs. Horton was called, and Miss.
Denham, one or two sails and an oc
casional walk on the beach with Miss
Denham, he seemed to be contented to
remain for the most part quietly about
the house. Frequently, during an
afternoon, he would entertain the
ladies with accounts of his travels. As
the evenings began to grow sufficient
ly long to make the gathering about
the evening lamp a cheerful feature of
the day's quiet routine, Miss Denham
would entertain them with music; or,
to please Aunt Alice, she would read
aloud to them from Thackeray-the
favorite author of the old lady. The ap
parent contentment of Beckneth with
this quiet life was rather a surprise to
his aunt, who was accustomed to see
him restless and active. She was
nevertheless delighted to have him so
constantly near her, for he was excel
lent company at all times. She could
not refrain, however, from speaking to
him one day about it. "Oh! I am very
glad of the opportunity for a good rest,
and to experience once more the pleas
ures of home life, however quiet, after
wandering about so long," he laugh
ingly explained to her.
A WMIF OF 'THE sEA.
Mrs. Horton had now remained at
Rockberg past the usual time for even
her to return to the city. The few
trees of a deciduous nature that were
to~ be found in that locality were near
ly stripped of their foliage, and cold
blustering winds had begun to pre
vail. The waters of the bay had as
sumed a greenish hue, over which the
white caps of foam were constantly
playing, instead of the prevailing blue
tints and frequent calms that had ac
companied the summer winds and
skies. An easterly storm, which the
fishermen said had been "b~rewing"
for several days, had now reached
them in all its fury.
Several of the fishing boats broke
away from their moorings in the bay,
and the hardy valor displayed by the
ffshermien in launching their dories in
the high surf that beat fiercely on the
beach, their long and dangerous pull
to board the crafts and drop an an
chor, were watched with interest and
anxiety by Mrs. Horton and Miss Den
ham from the windows of the cottage.
Towards night the storm increased,

gradually ceased. altogether; perhaps
from a feeling of dread and awe at the
wildness of the night, made doubly
lonesome by the absence of Beckweth.
The latter had gone that morning to
the city and was not expected to re
turn until the next day.
Had Mrs. Horton watched Miss Den
ham narrowly during this silence, she
might have seen in her countenance
signs of more than dread and lone
someness; for, surely, perplexity and
sadness were clearly written in the
features of her face, and once she
might have seen a tear silently cours
ing its way over her handsome cheek.
The old lady was busy with her own
thoughts, however, which found ex
pression a little later when Beckweth
came briskly into the room with a glee
ful salutation of : "Good evening, Aunt
Alice and Miss Denham! Here I am
again! Sooner than you expected; but
the fact is, I could not miss seeing this
storm down here, so I hurried back. I
love a storm!"
"Why! we are delighted to see you,"
said his aunt, "for I am sure this dread
ful weight had already given both Kate
and myself the blues. They had so
far taken possession of us as to drive
all sociability between us away. Now,
Arthur, you must cheer us up!"
"Cheer you up? Of course I will!"
he said, with a laugh, as he wheeled
his easy chair to the fire and seated
himself comfortably in it. "But why,
Aunt Alice, do you call this a dreadful
night? A glorious night I call it; pro
vided one is properly equipped and
prepared to meet it.
"But Arthur, just think of the poor
sailors to-night! I was thinking of
their hardship and peril when you
"The sailors! dangers! of course I
think of them. But just listen to what
the sailor himself has to say of the
matter, aptly expressed by the master
mind of the poet:
"A strong nor'wester's blowing, Bill;
Hark! don't ye hoar it roar now!
Lord help 'em, how I pities them
Unhappy folks on shore now !"
"Then you know, Aunt Alice," he
continued, with a mischievous twinkle
in his eye, "how this same old Barney
Buntline, after rehearsing to his mate
the various dangers to which he thinks
the landsman is liable on such a night
as this, while he and Bill 'on the deck
are comfortably lying,' says, referring
to those lie calls the 'foolhardy chaps
who live in towns:'
"'P oor creatures! bow they envies us, -
And wishes, I've a notion,
For our good lucks, in such a storm,
To be upon the ocean!'
sAFE UPON THE OCEAN.
"Then he sums the whole matter up,
Miss Denham, in the following honest
expression of his sentiments:
"' We know what risks all landsmen run,
From noblemen to tailors;
Then, Bill, let us thank Providence
Thatyou and I are sailors.'
"There! you see, ladies, it is of no
use for you to expend much of your
sympathy on sailors; they won't thank
you for it."
"If I thought you were really as
thoughtless as your levity might imply,.
I would appeal to your aunt to give you
a severe reprimand," said Miss Den
barn, with an amused smile. "For my
part, I can not keep from my mind to
night the experience of a friend of
mine who was shipwrecked in just such'
a storm as this on Fisher Islaud, in this
very bay. Do you remember, Mrs.
Horton, a family by the name of Har"
per that used to spend the summer
months here in Rockberg years ago?"
"I do," said Beckweth, "particular
ly because Mrs. Harper used to take
her little daughter Hattie and myself
to drive almost every pleasant day, for
a whole summer. Riding with any
one but Hattie Harper had no charm
for me in those days. That was the
year. Aunt Alice, that father and'
mother were in Europe, and I was left
"You remember Hattie, then," said
Miss Denham, earnestly. "It iyas of
her that I have been thinking. Did you
ever know that she was a shipwrecked
child-a castaway on Fishier Island?
In all probability not, however, for
she did not know it herself in those
days. I was once her most intimate
friend, and she has told me all that
ehe herself knows about it. Being ac
quainted with her at one time your
self, Mr. Beckweth, you may be inter
ested to hear as,,much of her history as
pertains to her being shipwrecked:
"Just twenty-six years ago the 23d
of the coming December, during a ter
rible storm that lasted for several days,
the people of Rockberg saw, just be
fore the night shut in, a large bark, in
a disabled condition, being rapidly
driven onto the outer point o.f Fisher
Island. The win4 and tide being
against them, and the storm a most
terrific one, the fisher~men could render
the disabled vessel no assistance, al
though several attempts were made to
launch the surf-boats. In the early
part of the night the watchers on the
boeh were mnged that themd a
stuck, and was rapidly breaking up,
for drift- from the wr-ck began
to be scattered along the shore.
When the morning came, not a
sign of the vessel was to be seen; she
had gone literally to pieces. Eight
corpses were thrown up on the beach,
all of sailors, it was thought, and also
one living person-a little girl ap
parently two years of age. The latter
owed her life to the fact that she came
ashore carefully wrapped in blankets
and canvas, and securely packed in
an open box which was secured to an
empty cask. To the cask were lashed
some pieces of spars in such a way
that it had floated on the waves with
out turning. 'None but a sailor's hand
did that work.' 'She is a sailor's
child,' said the fishermen, as they
looked, many of them with moistened
eyes, from the wondering face of the
child to the construction of the raft
that had brought her to them. Their
hearts warmed towards the little waif
on that account, and she was care
fully oared for. Although every ef
fort was made at that time, and
afterwards, to learn who her parents
were, or had been, it was never ascer
tained. The wreck afforded no clue as
to where the bark belonged, or what
her name was, beyond the fact that,
from certain indications among the
wreckage, known only to sailors, it was
said to be of English rig. From the
number and dress of the bodies
washed ashore, it was also believed
that she was not a passenger vessel.
Furthermore, there was the ship whose
arrival was expected about that time at
the port of the neighboring city, which
did not reach there in safety.
"The child remained in the charge of
the people of the village here until the
following summer, when Mrs. Harper,
who had but a short time before lost
her only daughter, adopted her." .

WOMEN PAPER - JIANGERS.
An Illustrative Example and Its Moral.
Two sisters in Des Moines, Ia., are
professional paper-hangers. and charge
at the same rate as men working in
that picturesque ,'it protracted calling.
The profuse use of Lhe step-ladder would
make it entirely ippropriate to call
these women step-sisters, but the fact
remains that their kinship is of the in
timate nature mentioned. Yet it must
not be thought from this incident that
not less than two women and only
blood relatives can enter this light and
airy business. Unlike the suffrage right,
the right to wield a brush, to mix paste,
and to adjust the elusive room paper is
open to all women comers. If the Des
Moines example should be followed and
women in all parts of the country
should enter this sphere of work a
mighty change would come over the
spirit of the householder's dreams. A
mind which has never soared with Mil
ton or floated along the innocuous sur
face of Tupper's verse or climbed the
rocky heights of Walt Whitman's wood
cut sort of stanzas may yet readily im
agine the methods of hiring the woman
paper-hanger and her methods of doing
It is well known that the man hanger
is never to be seen at his place of busi
ness. Only his slate is there, and that
tells that he is elsewhere. In fact,
there are persons willing to make affa
davit that the ordinary paper-hanger is
entirely a slate formation. How differ
ent would be the ease if a woman were
to be engdted to make the walls attract
ive. Repairing to her shop, she is
found knitting her brows over a fine
piece of needlework, or smiling over a
novel which is ending well. A canary
bird sings in a cage made out of a dis
used paste-pot. Vines run over a trellhs
work of miniature step-ladders. On
the table lie carelessly the proof-sheets
of "How Not to Paper a Ro'om."~ You
make known your errand and a hasty
consulting' of the appointment book fol

at last; "I can come as well as not. The
author's breakfast will be over at 9 a.
i., and the Society to Prevent Cruelty
at the Polls does not meet till 7:30 p.
i." Having engaged your paper-hang
er in this charming and unconventional
way, you may well be prepared for a
novel style of paste and scissors work.
There will be no going out at 11 to
"sharpen scissors," nor repeated ab
sences to "get tools." The remotest
corner will at last feel that it has rights
which paper-hangers are bound to re
spect. If a graduate, the employe will
cheer your heart by asides, like "Ten

The brush, with an embroidered handle,

prosaic, and the bill will be sent in

couraging fact in the Des Moines case is
that no men have yet sawed the sisters'
step-ladders, or tipped over the paste, or
sent them to the wrong~ house, or in a
dozen ways tried to discourage their
venture in a calling where the good
seem to . die first. These sisters may

ARTIST AND HUMORIST.
Clever Practical Joke. Played by the
Sculptor iran Powers.
James H. Beard, the artist, telis some
anecdotes of the early career ci Hiram
Powers, the sculptor, which ;o to show
that he was full of grim humor. When
Powers went to Cincinnati he was cu
gaged in iaking wax figures for a
museum owned by a man naicl Ior
field. The figures which he molded
were delicated and beautiful beyond
anything that was known at that time.
His ingenuity in mechanics was re
markable, and Mr. Beard thinks that
he would have made as great a success
in mechanic arts as he did in sculpture
if he had devoted his attention to the
former. Th'ere was a popular comic
singer in Powers' day at Chicinnatt
named Alexander Drake. fowers mold
ed a wax head of Drake, and fashionel
a figure to match the head. One of
Drake's songs which was in great de
mand with audiences was called "Love
and Sausages." Powers took his wax
figure to the theater and placed it on
the stage in Drake's favorite attitude,
and when the curtain rose for Drake's
song there stood before the audience
two Alexander Drakes, both perfectly
natural. The people were astounded;
They gazed and gazed in wonderment
until the curtain went down and rose
again on a single Drake. It was the
wax figure, but so like the singer that
the audience cried, and shouted. and
stamped for "Love and Sausages." The
figure was silent and the curtain went
down without any response being made
to their calls. It rose again, and there
was a single Erdke confronting them.
This time the audience remained un
demonstrative, not knowing what to ex
pect. It was the true Drake, and when
he proceeded to sing "Love and Saus
ages" the mystery was intensified. For
about three days the people talked of
this double Alexander Drake, andthen
the secret got out that it was one of
At another time Powers was at work
on a wax bust of Thomas Jeferson.
There was a critic in Cincinnati in
those days named Simms, who had in
curred the displeasure of Powers and
others. He was told one evening that
the bust was completed, and was asked
to inspect it. It was in the days when
the only light was from tallow candies,
and as the room was dark he was given
a candle with which to make a close in
spection of the bust. He began to con- I
ment upon its unnatural appear nce,
declaring that the color of the flesh was
not natural and so on. As he leaned i
down for closer inspection the burning
candle was brought close to the figure,
which suddenly dodged back, winked
its eye, and shouted: "Don't burn me."
It was Powers himself.
A favorite trick of the artist, i ;lich
he often performed in the museum and
in public places, was made possible by
the long cloaks which it was the custom
to wear in those dayp. Any one who
has seen the figures in a circus which
are short and squat one moment and .
apparently ten feet high the next will I
understand the nature of the joke.
Powers would gather his cloak up in his
hands and make himself apparently
about three feet in height, and as he
passed around the museum he would
gradually become taller and taller until
ati1st, taking the collar of his cloak
and the rim of his hat in his hands, he
would shove them far above his head
and make himself appear very tall. All
the time he would go peering around at
he sights while most of the people were
watching him, as the biggest curiosit3
