"A LEAP IN THE DARK."
A MAD ACT.
The clin that rear their haughty bead
High o'er the river' darkaomo bed,
W'ere here all naked, wild and gray,
There waving all with green wood apray;
Here, trees from every crevico grew,
And o'er tho crags their branches threw,
And there, ull spllutercd aud uneven,
Thu shivered rocks acend to heaven.
It was a clear, bright mglit, In tho
depths ot tho mountuin wilderness.
There was a long, deep, narrow vally,
running north and south, for many im!es,
flanked east and wst by towering moun
tains. The range on tho east woa called Cata
mount Clifls, that ou tho west, Panther
Deep down in tho bottom of tho valley
ran a low and narrow river, called the Um
bra; On this night not a sound disturbed the
awful solitude of tho wilderness; not a liv
ing creature appeared in sight.
Human life seemed far away.
Yet bad there been light enough, a hu
man furrn might have been seen on the
It was the figure of a young girl, wrap
ped in a durk shawl that covered her from
head to foot, gliding slowly, slowly down
the winding mountain path, now passing
out of sight behind a clump of trees, now
comitig into view again as tho path turned
in and out in its decent.
Sometimes she paused and leaned against
a tree, as if for momentary support, and
then the faint light of the moon fell upon
an up-turned, lovely-young face, pallid
And now another figure appeared upon
the scene, another and a taller young girl,
enveloped in a long waterproof cloak, whose
hood was drawn over her head.
She glided silently down the same path,
in the same manner, keeping her eyes upon
her predecessor, as if she were "shadowing"
her as indeed she was.
The first girl wound her sinuous way
down the mountain side to the very foot of
the ridge and edge of tho river, between
which and herself lay the tracks of a very
recently laid railroad, whoso trains, twice
a day, awoke tho awful echoes of the tower
ing rock 8.
Here she sat down on a fallen boulder,
let her shawl drop from her form and lay
in a heap around her, clasped her hand
upon her knees, and turned her woeful
young face up to tho starlit heavens, ns if
help for her hidden grief were there.
Then she looked vaguely at the little
crescent of the moon that was sinking slow
ly behind the cedar crowned summit of the
western ridge. She watched it out of
sight, and then let her glance slowly drop
to the river at her feet. Gazing on the low
river, she began to mutter to herself as
only the crazed or half crazed ever do.
"If I (hired it I dared," she whispered,
her eyes dilating as she gazed down upon
the liver, whose shining, smooth dark sur
face reflected every star above. "If I only
dared to tuke the plunge. They say that
Umbra here has no bottom, at least none
that has ever been sounded. Night after
night I have come here how many times
how many times; but I have never bad
the courage to take that plunge! What
does the poet say?
'Who would not choose
The leap attaining tho repose?'
Oil, but I cannot I cannot I Oh, for one
brief fit ot madness to givo mo cour
age to end it all to end it all
with me who am atraid to die, and moio
afraid to live. The demon has driven ine
to the river's brink, night after night, but
ho has never driven me into it. Au n-ii J"
she suddenly cried, starting to her feet.
"What is that!"
It was the noise of tho rushing express
train from tho north, gaining force and
volume as it sped onward, its thunders
caught up hy the echoes of tho rocky cliffs
on each sido of tho river, and hurled back
and forth with an overwhelming uproar that
filled the valley, and seemed to threaten
with annihilation every living creature in it.
The girl standing up, gazed, breathless.
upon tho rushing monster, whoso firey eyes,
and" bellowing breath were almost upon
She pressed her left hand hard upon her
heart, and bent forward, her lips apart, her
eyes dilated to their utmost capacity, and
blazing fiercely, as with tho suddenly kin
dled fires of madness.t
Another instant, and with a phrenzied
yell she threw her arms ou high, and,
swifter than an arrow from tho bow, sho
shot downwards from tho bank and threw
herself headlong upon tho track, under tho
very heat of tho rushing engine.
Rut swifter than the arrow was tho arm
of love, as tho watcher sprang forward and
flung her off, falling back from tho im
petus clear of tho track, just as the express
train thundered onward, shaking the solid
foundations of tho mountains as it passed.
At last thcro was silence.
Both girls, motionless, exhausted, half
paralyzed, lity together where they had
fallen. Tho nldcr, with every vein and
artery throbbing, as if they would burst
with Intonso excitement, still clutched tho
younger in her arms, and held her as in a
death-grip. Roth wero panic-stricken,
overwhelmed and speechless.
The deliverer was the first to recover
"Wero you mad?" she whispered, in a
hubkyand almost inarticulate) voice.
"Yes mad," moaned the other, after 0
"Oh, why did you doit?"
"I have told you I was mad."
There was Bilenco for a few moments,
and then tho elder spoko again, gravely
"Bevviol what drove you to depcratmn?"
"I cannot toll you I Oh, I can never tell
you I I wish you had not stopped me! It
would have been all over by this time,"
moaned the girl called IJevvio.
"Yes, yes, yes, yes!" wailed tho girl,
rocking Herself back and forward "for I
should have been out of all my misery!
ura: Ora ! hy did you follow me? Why
aid you interfere with me?"
"I havo watched you for weeks; I liavo
followed you tor days. I nm responsible
to tho Lord for you: I was in duty bound
to save you, even if I had not loved you as
I do, ungrateful child!"
"Oh, if you knew! If y.m knew, Ora!
Ah ! why did you interfere? It would have
been all over now, and I should have been
past all my troubles!" wailed IJevvio.
"You say that again 1 And it Is false!
'All over?' 'Past your trouble?' Foolish
girl ! you would havo been before your
Maker for Bclf-murdcr! You would have
exchanged temporal grief for eternal woe!"
exclaimed the elder, in a tone of intense
"Oh, no, I hope not t for I was mad then,
Ora! I was mad then; indeed I was. I
had not thought of doing that net one
minute before I did it! Rut tho ltishof
tho engine, tho thunder of the noise, the
uproar of the echo, the fiery eye, tho flam
ing breath, tho vision of swift and nudden
death, all fascinated, m iddeued me as I
stood alono in the dark, and drew me down
to the destruction from which you snatched
"Aud yet yon seem deeply to regret be
ing saved, and you bitterly reproach me for
saving you! You aro inconsistent, Revvie!
But that too is a symptom of an unsouud
mind! Come with me! I do not know I
cannot even hazard a conjecture, as to the
nature of the grief that has unsettled you.
lou liavo steadily refused to tell me. Rut
to-night I am determined to
know! for I am in tho place of a mother
to you, Revvie, and I am responsi
ble to tho Lord for your well-being. Can
you walk up the steep?"
"Oh, yes, I can walk," sighed tho
"Take my arm, then, and do not hesitate
to lean on it with all your weight," said
Ora, lifting tho heavy shawl from tho
ground, where Revvie had cast it, wrapping
and pinning it carefully around tho girl's
form, and then tenderly supporting her
steps as they left tho spot.
And so tho foster-mother of twenty ono
and the adopted daughter of sixteen re-as'
cended tho mountain oath to thoir home.
where tho dread secret which had driven
Bevvio to temporary madness was to be
revealed. Tho above is tho opening chap
ter of Mrs. Southworth's new story "A
Leap in the Dark" which isbegun in this
week's New York Ledger, Tho story, as
tho reader may seo from this specimen of
it, is a very powerful one. It is a narrative
of events that occurred in Maryland and
v lrginia many years ago," when cverv-day
lito was wild and rotnanatic in the moun
tain regions ol those states. Mrs. South
worth has written many good stories, but
she herself thinks that this is ono of her
very best. Ask for tho Ledger dated May
