friend (who had recently been bereaved of her hm
band), which contained the following panagc:
Every prayer that I offer to heaven Tl freighted
with petition tnat God would let my hnaband'i

but an Illusion of my melancholy Imagination. "J
Through the cloeed curtain creeps no shaft of
' The dead Are gives no ray, '
Between ui I lei the silence, still unbroken,
That fell one wlnter'i day.
The darknesi fills the well remembered placet,
The midnight give no ilgn ;
One heart to-nlgbt aches In the lonely chamber,
Where once throbbed thine and mine.
You have called mo back to you, my darling ;
With tears and angulahdumb.
Pain's broken cry hod passion's voiceless yearning;
You have called Ind I have como.
Ovor the form I wore the dark storm bloweth,
The heavy rain drips cold;
Closer than loving arms could fold about me,
Neitlcs the church yard'! mold.
But I, a spirit, cast In a new brlgHtneii,
Drift, liko a rose leaf blown,
Back to the home we loved togcthor,
Bark to thy breast, mine own. (

The pillow when I died; ,
The weary eyes, uplifted In their anguish,
The long hair scattered wide.
Wife, who didst love me as my own soul lovuth :
Who wearlod God with prayer;
Your cry to heaven came ringing
In pasalon and despair,
And I have aniwercd in nlght'i dead darknesi,
Down through tho falling rain;
With all tho ache and anguish of earth's loving,
I have como back again.
Hast thou no word to falter through tho illeucor
Lift up thine eye ind see,
Can not lovo break tho fleshy barrier rising
Ho dark twlxt theo and mef

Huarest thou no sound or ligh r
Oh God! Thou knowest how far amid thy ipacei
I hoard my darling cry!
Can my hand wake no pulse to throb at meeting?
Mint my kls fall liko air,
When word I ipuak to you are bringing

His Jams made some confused answer,
od sat down to cross question Hiss Wj
nian. 8Iie had learned caution by experi
ence, and did not dare push her question
too far. So she only found that Miss Wy-
man was from the East; that, rehirninir
from s trip to Shasta, she had come tinon
this place by the merest accident, and, lik
ing its loneliness, had decided to stay here
and rest awhile. She led tho trirl always
MissWyman to that of Miss Jarvis,and
entered into all the little interests that
made up the teacher's life. Miss Jams
found horself telling of those Wedgewood
letters. She did not know jus how the sub
ject came up, but it was something that
Mass Wyman said about men disappearing
"And was the man found I" the lady ask
ed, with her pleasant, interested way.
"No, there was no such man, either here
or in my neighborhood.'' '
Miss Wyman shook the ends of the red
worsted from her lap into tho fire, and
stood looking through the window. She
began to talk of the manzanita, and of tho
wild-flowers "in home," and of some Bhe
had picked In Europe. Miss Jarvia learned
by persistent questioning that this slight,
quiet lady had travelled almost everywhere
that white men s feet had gone in tuina
aira n.wii;u, us wcu us iu ivuaaia. auvwuuo .
she studied Miss Wvman's face the surer
she was that some object, not love of adven
ture, had led her over the world, and she
vowed that she would learn what it was, if
she had to go herself and ask questions in
China or Russia.
From that afternoon the new school
teacher in the ''Sheep District" lived to
unravel tho two mysteries she had lighted
on. Teaching was a "side issue her chief
business in litu was to find out who Old
Tom was, and why he left the world; who
Miss Wyinan, was, and why she traveled
the world over alone. Bhe used to walk
home from school by the longest way,
along the road, and stop to talk to the her
mit. There was something perplexingly
gentlemanly, always An his way to her on

his garden or her school, and seemed
uncomprehending when she asked about
his former wife. It was so evident that his
mind was to some extent shattered, that
Miss Jarvis bejan to suspect that he had
partially tost his memory. Certainly she
could "get no more outca him" than Mr.
Baker whom his constituents had this
time sent with prido to Sacrenionto as s
specimen of the honest granger with no
book-learning, who was to circumvent the
wiles of literary toilers and of railroad
kings, and. make the cost of freighting
wool and sheep merely nominal, while
their prices should remain as high as
At last Miss Jarvis admitted that Tom
himself eithor could not or would not tell
his history to her, so she docided to search
for herself. She watched for a timo when
he was busied in a distant part of his or
r.liiir.. nnd .tinned valiantlv in hia housn
(by courtesy so called). She found a shab
by kitchen with the unmistakable air of a
man's housekeeping, but though she looked
in every pot and pan, and up thorough
stone chimney, alio could find no more than
a fire-place, two shelves of dishes and ket
tles, a box made into a cunboard for food.

for the owner's step. It
had a rough bunk, with only a pillow
and blankets, and a few clothes in a box,
nothing more. Not a book in tho house;
not even a candle. Sho had just found
some seeds and garden tools under the bod
when Bhe heard Tom's step in tho other
room. There was no resource but to
scramble ignominiously under tiio bed, and
disposo herself among tho bags of beot and
turnip seed till, after a linlf-hour of tho
greatest trepidation, sho was liberated by
his departure It was a bitterly disappoint
ed young school-teacher that found her

Sharp she had stayed to sweep tho school-
room, and that was wiui maun ncr urcss so

mondous revelations secret correspondence,
documents, at least tho college di-plomo.
Sho began to think Old Tom was a hum
bug, in splto of his manners. : 1
Out the incideut did her service by sug
gesting a plau for her other campaign..
Miss Wyman had not gono far in her ac

began to bo very careful about
