this hot afternoon you ought to read aloud
"I will if you like," I say smiling.
And so we settle ourselves in luxurious
comfort on our tiny island, Oeorgie busy
with her pencil, Sir Jasper stretched lazily
at lull length, smoking, and I reading out
the love-idyll of Claude and (ierlrude.
There is not a sound near, but the wash of
the water leaping on the yellow Band at
our feet. An hour more perhaps passes
ttvay und we have not finished the story ol
the stricken Lady of (iarraje. A little wind
has risen and flutters the pages of the book
in my baud.
The boat is behind us, where the sand is
smoothest, and where there are no rocks to
impede landing. Hcfore us lies the bluo
water, and the sunlit shore is beyond; and
we never notice that the tide is creeping

und drawn it back into the deep water.
A sudden pull' of wind comes sighing
over the sea. Sir Jasper looks up.

attempts to hook the bout back with his

he says quickly; and tying it to his stick,

Oeorgie suddenly turns white to the lips.
"Crab's Koek is covered at high water !"
she says almost in a whisper.
We look at each other In silence. Het
words carry their own meaning only too
plainly. Sir Jasper speaks first.
"I cannot swim a stroke or else I could
get the boat back easily enough. Come
don't get down-hearted; the tide won't bo
high for two good hours yet and a boat Is
sure to pass before that."
"Itoats never pass here," Oeorgie says
We look around far out to sea, but there
is only the streak of blue on the horizon,
and not a sail in sight.
Somebody may see us from the shore,"
I suggest, with my heart thumping, as I
see the water creeping up.
"Very few people pass this way," Oeor
gle says, shaking her head. "See how far
uway thu boat Is now and the tide Is ris
ing very fast,"
An idea rushes into my mind.
"Mr. Delacourt knows where we are.
He will come for us."
Oeorgie turns a little paler.

Mr Jasper says not a word, but stands
with compressed lips, looking at the little
boat so far awuy on the shining waves.
"JVc must do something!" Oeorglo ex
claims a quiver of anxiety in her voice.
"What can we dor" Sir Jasper asks des
perately. "Our only chance Is a boat com
ing this way. Mrs. Carstairs, are you go

No," I answer, struggling with the hor
rid sick feeling of fear, and with a terrible
fascination, watching tho water creeping'

Somebody mlnlit hear us."
He puts hi hands together and shouts
through them, loud and long, a cry thut

and again ho repents It, without a sound or

1 sit with my face in my bands, in an
awful speechless terror, thinking of deih ;
und it cannot be very long now before the
waves wilt wash mu oil into thu deeu eoi-i
water. Will Humphrey he sorry, I won

the wife who was learning to love him,
Will he think of her always as sweet und
lovely, tho girl he loved so dcarlyf Poor
Humphrey! Will ho see me, 1 wonder,
washed in dead at his feet in tho white
muslin and bluo ribbons thut decked mo so
fairly this morning!1
Ah me, there will ho an awful moment
whon 1 struggle for my warm young life,
and sob out a dying cry before 1 go down,
down Into the depths und stillness below 1
And jioe i shiver all over us I
think of her coming only to tlnd I urn dead.
It will be full tide when Hoc and Lena
reach Carstairs, und I shall be no more then
on the face of tho earth, no more able to
speak or think or move, never again able
to tread the fair green earth. Ah, Heav
en, and 1 am not tit to die !
1 raise my woe-begone face und look ut
the other two, to see how they bear this
death, this living death, that is stealing up
inch by inch. They uro standing side by
side; her head is resting on Ins shoulder.
Oreut sobs are shaking her from head to

small all else appears I
"I loved you always," 1 bear her say
through her tears; ami ho answers sadly
"Wo can die together, my love; audit

A long murmuring explanation follows,
and tho arms that lay once around his neck
aro around It again, the warm young arms
that will be cold and lifeless soon.
I have no part and lot In this. They are
together; 1 must dio alone.
The waves arc roaring round. One
larger than the rest rushes up to my feet ;
and unconsciously I tlravv up my dress to
keep it dry, and then burst out crying. I
shall be wet nil over soon enough wet
with the great hungry waves.
"I am afraid it is nearly nil up with us,"
Sir Jasper says in a low hoarse voice.
I stagger to my feet and strain my eyes
to take a long look around; but there is
not a soul to help or save.
"Heaven help us!" 1 murmur.
Sir Jasper's face is us white ns that of
the poor trembling girl leaning ugainst his

Oeorgie turns round u face, that is white
and distorted with anguish and terror.
"Save me, Jasper!" she gasps trembling.
"Dear love, it so hard to die ! Oh, Jasper,
"1 have never eared ,:o much to live," he
says sadly, gathering her to him tightly.
And then ho turns to me, as I stand gazing
with wide horror-tilled eyes ut the rising
tide. "Have you too given up hope? l'oor
child; you are young to die!"
So wo stand; and tho waves come rushing
up and washing over our feet. I shake ull
over as the first great wave breaks round
me, und my white dress lies limp und sod

"Humphrey, Humphrey!" I cry. His

No moan, no cry, and it is nearly over,
the water washing about our feet. Wo
two poor terrllied women aro quiet enough
now, praying Heaven to have mercy und
let us die soon. Sir Jasper holds his poor
love tightly, and I cling to his other una.
Oreat sobs break from him, wrung from
him because of his sheer inability to help
Only a few more minutes to live; and
we cling to life, und gaze with hungry
longing eyes at the land we shall never see
again. Oeorgie is half unconscious; her
eyes are closed, and the only sign of life is
a long shiver now und then.

hoarsely, "and let Heaven have mercy on

hoarse cry of uugulsli, and then a louder
"A sail, a sail!"
The great wavo washes back ugain.
Blind and wet, I cling to Sir Jasper, and
hear him shout aloud, the despairing cry of
a strong man facing death's agony. And
then another wave washes over my shoul

it has come too Into ! a boat plunging
over the waves, and a voice erics out

Raved I Lying it the bottom of the flsh
ing boat, my head on a rough coat, I come
back to life. We arc flying before the wind,
the big brown sail heeling over to water's
edge, and the white waves seething und
curling past. I see the rough kindly faces
of tho fishermen, and Sir Jasper, with
Oeorgie leaning against him, her white face
Is she dead? I suppose my eyes usk

"To Kea Crags" Bir Jasper answers.
I hey un t ua m these rocks,. Mrs. Car-
stairs. What can wo do to bring her
round?" Turning his piteous face to the
sailors, he asks, "My men have you not u
drop of spirits on bourd?"
After searching, ono man produces a
small black bottle containing whisky. Sir
Jasper forces a little betwoeu Oeorgie's
closed lips, uud makes me swallow some
too. I feel better after it; andieorglo
opens her eyes wonderingly.
Tho sailors are very kind, and do their
best to make us comfortable; and at last
we see the twinkling lights of Sea Crags,
u tiny fishing hamlet to which I once drov e
wll.li Humphrey, blr Jnsperls whispering
to Oeorgie, and she has spoken once or
twice in a tremulous voice.
Then the brown sail is hauled down, and
kind rough arms lift us out, and we stand
oiu e more on the earth again, and see a
crowd gathering, and hear eager oders of
help. Willing hands lift Oeorglo uud car
ry her oil, surrounded by eager sympathls
ing Usher-folk. They are very anxious to
carry mo too, but 1 rebel, uud, gullierlng
up my wet skirts, stagger weakly by Sir
Jasper's side. A forlorn, miserable trio
we are, though full of thankfulness for the
lives that have been given buck to us.
Sir Jasper is dreadfully anxious about
Oeorgie; but by-aiid-by, when we uro warm
and Oeorgie und 1 clad in t he Sunday gar
incut of the fisherman's daughters, tho
color creeps back to tier face, uud site can
laugh at our queer uppearance. I smile a
little too, as I sit on a low stool by the lire,
and shako out my long brown locks to dry ;
but. 1 am trembling still, und death seems
hardly to have left our presence yet.
rir Jasper conies in, attired strangely in
queer uucoulh garments; und the warm
blood rushes to Ocorgie's face iis ho bends
over her, whispering and holding her hand
When can we gut home?" I usk, feeling
anxious to relieve the fright and anxiety
there must be ut home. Wo must have
been missed by this time; and no doubt
search is being made.
I have managed to get a horse," saysSir
Jasper, "and I will ride as fast as 1 can to
Carstairs und let your husband know that
you ure sate. Then we can bring back the
carriage for you. That is the best plan, 1
"And mamma," Oeorgie puts in "you
will let yer know won't you?"
Of course. And now I'll be off. You
feel ull right now, Oeorgie?" Sir Jasper
says, bending over her again, for she is ull
his own now.
Then he goes out into the quiet twilight,
and a few minutes utter we hear tho sound
of a horse's hoofs galloping past. Oeorglo
sits and smiles into the tire, musing over
I have not congratulated you," I say.
"Oh, Oeorgie, 1 am so glad!" And sho
looks up with tears in her eyes.
"1 was happier to-day, even so near
death, than I have been for a long, long
time. Madgie, he cared for me ull the
time and it did not seem so hard to dio
when 1 knew that."
We drink tea in the cottage, out of great
heavy cups, and feel tho blood coursing
through our veins again ; and we try not
to think of those few awful moment vvhcu
death was so very near.
Darkness has spread over the sky, and
the waves are creeping back again; but I
heed not the wash and murmur now.
Ocot-Lrio is half asleep in a large straw arm
chair, a red shawl around her, and all her
dark hair streaming over her shoulders. I
look at her face, and it seems to me that
her new happiness has blotted out the
hard defiant expression that has rested
there for so long; the firm sweet mouth is
half smiling even in her sleep, and on her
sweet fair brow re-ts no shadow of trouble
all is perfect peace at last. Death was
u friend when he made those two one, after
all the weary time of sadness and separa
tion Through the still night-air conies tho

being driven furiously through the littlo
street, it pulls up suddenly.
"Madgie, Madgie!" cries a dear well
l.novvn voice that has the echo of old times
in it tones, ami l!eo collies hurrying thro'
the low door-way, and we cling closely to
"Itee," I gasp "lice darling!" And I
burst into a passionate lit of weeping, my
arms around her neck.
"Ob, don't! Hush, Madgie, you must
not cry," sho whispers in a tearful voice,
"Dear, we have all been frightened; but it
is over now."
1 raise my lace and see hers the sweet
dear lace I thought I should never again
see. And then my eyes stray to another
figure my husband, with longing eyes
looking iulo nit lie. For one moment 1 have
forgot ten him; theu 1 creep into tho shel

breast. 1 feel him shiver all over us ho
gathers me tightly to him; and 1 know ho

Happiness is a wonderful cure for all

We drive home very silently in tho dark
ness, lice sits opposite to me with Sir Jas

peace and happiness. Oeorgie leans back
in the corner, like myself, weary ill body
and mind. Humphrey is outside on tho
box; and when we reach home, ho conies
round and lifts me out, and carries mo
bodily up the steps und into the hall ; for

Oraut and M rs. Delacourt stand waiting

me, with her pretty childish face bearing

looks as if the last few hours of uuxiety
have aged her ten years.

into tho world again the world that is

like a golden dream, and I uin as light

"Humphrey," I say to my husband ono
day, slipping my hand into his of my own
accord, "I am glad I married you; und 1

has left her work for to-day.
Oeorgie Is dressed In soft creamy muslin,
with lace at the throat and wrists. Sir
Jasper's love is a true woman after all;
with tho reconciliation all tho fastness has
disappeared, and even In dress his wishes
are her law now, The old reckless Oeorglo
Jielacourt who cared for no one's opinion,
is very womanly now, with only ono de.
