I think you rnutt not a.sk me to do

"Not at-k you!" cried she. "Oh! please

Lave some dimly-fuint apprehensiun of his

if he were too much with her ho might
learn to care for her morethan it'wonld lie
well for him to do. Possibly she felt that
he never would allow himself to love her
lest the world should say that Le had
wooeil her only to win bnck his unele's
wealth. 1'e that an it might, she siirhed,
and m'A "Ought we not to wave our
bnndkiTcliiefs more vigorously? the peo
ple on shore do not seem to seo us!"
"Yes, I think we ought. But they can
easily see us without our making signals.
One thing wo must do, and that is, go up
tho hill at once, or we shall have the tide
getting in between us and tho steps. Let
mo give you my arm!"
"h, no, thank you," slm replied, coldly

That was preciwly what she hersoif
bad been doing. Could It Vat possible that
any of the thoughts that had passed
through her mind while doing this had al

"Dy-the-byo, I have your brooch," said
he. "I looked for it yesterday, u ml eould

, '"Thank you," cried Lucy. "How pleas

"Oh, is it ?" he exclaimed, with some in

"What do you think was the posy on the

ought to tell you that he bad already had

"Hut don't you think she must have

quired, with a smile.
"I am sure she did not! Would any
woman have married him who had seen
"People are wonderfully odd!" said he
and somehow or other he became very si
lent for awile. Lucy waB silent also, for
the sight of the ring and the brooch bail
reminded her of all the Kenrick jewelry,
the possession of which was such an an
noyauce to her. ,
Mr. Richmond, let us be good friends,"
she at length exclaimed with some eager
ness, and a strong wish to be diplomatic
"What shall I do to show you how much
I wish it?" he replied, with one of his
smiles, which were so pleasant to see.
"Come and pay me a visit in Chester
Square and help me pick out the family
jewels which your mother would most
value. It makes mo miserable to have
them do come."
"Please, MisHClavering,"said he, "please
remember that we have our pride too.
We feel your goodness and kindness, but
how can we receive from you in this indi
rect manner anything Mr. Kenrick did not
wish to give us J"
"I hate pride!" cried Lucy. "Really
Mr. Richmond, you and your mother have
far too much of it!" She looked irresisti

pique with which she spoke, became her
"If you were in my place you would
act as I do," said be. "Besides, remem

flict you so much are things about which
I am entirely indifferent. I am a lowly
minded, unambitious man. If I have
daily bread and health, I want nothing
more than a little sunshine."
"I understand," said Lucy, in a tone
which she knew to be one of slight vexa
tion. "You are independent of your fellow-creatures."

my fellow-creatures, when they are of the

"Some of the ix'nple over there are quite
certain to see us and come," said Hugh
Richmond. "Let me enjoy this unexpect
ed pleasure for one half-hour longer in
jxiace. When I see you waving that
white signal with such good will, I feel
as if a Imut would come and carry you
away in five minutes."
"It would carry you, too."
"Yes; but it would mean bidding you
farewell a few minutes afterwards."
"We will talk for half an hour," said she
gaily, "and then we must take active
measures to procure our release."
"None will be needed. Home of the St.
Malo people are sure to see us and come
of their own accord. Each instant I ex
peet to see a tioat put off,"
"Then, in point of fact, our adventure is
not an adventue after all?"
"No; it is nothing but an opportunity
for a quiet half-hours conversation.

THE DAILY CAIRO Bl LTETIN:
sol was all she had to defend herself with.
He had not even an umbrella, and now
the rain was beginning to fall fast. He
gave up for the present the idea of trying
to summon help from St. Malo, and ran
here and there to look or shelter. The
storm was coming from the St. Malo sidej
he ran towards the opjiosite clitf, and after
some search found on the very edge of it
bit of overhanging turf under which
the loose soil had crumbled away. This
roofed in a littlo space, but very inade-
uately. He took Lucy there j and as the
rain came in a slanting direction from tho
other side, this place of shelter which ho
;iad found was sufficient to protect her.
"I won't stay here unless you do," cried
she. "Am I to 1 dry, and you get wet?"
"There is very little room," said Mr.
"There is enough for both of us," said
Lucy so he crept in and sat down by her.
The cliff sloped away Uforothem in brok
en terrace-like descents of half hills, half
precipices, and they could perceive the
heavy rains falling on the now leaden sea.
"We are tolerably dry here, but we lose
our chance of making the St. Malo jieople
see us," said Lucy; however, the rain is
so heavy it can't last long."
Richmond who was accustomed to study
skies, was afraid that it would last; but
he said, cheerfully, "After all, this under-
cut nit oi paMUiu-iana is a grew nuu lot
us. I'll scoop a little more soil out, I
think. Sit still, Miss Clavering; I am go
ing to work very gently I won't throw
any of it on you." He took a thin bit of
stone and seooppd away the earth delving
in carefully, and leaving a thick massftf
pmtecting turf aliove.
"It ib not worth while to do that," said
Lucy. "As soon as the rain clears away
enough to let them see us, we must go and
Bhow ourselves. What a pily my people
have chosen such an unfortunate day for
their excursion to Pinan!"
"Are you cold V he inquired vei-y anx
Oh, no; I am quite comfortable. Now,
really, Mr. Richmond, this is beginning to
look more like an adventure."
"I hope for your sake it will not be too
much of one. Are you hungry ?" inquired
"No, I thank you but what o'clock is
"Twenty minutes past five."
"Where are you going now? Don't
put your head out! You will get so wet,"
"I must not stay here, I must go to the
other sido and see if I can't arouse the
jieople on shore."
"Not m this ram?"
"I dare not wait any longer. We must
make them see us now. It will be dark
in an hour or two."
"Whether you go now or not, we are
certain to be seen long before dark.
There are always a number of boats
Will you excuse my taking off my
coat?" asked he.
"Oh! don't go without your coat," cried
Lucy. "What can you be thinking of?
Just look how it is raining!"
"That is the very reason why I am tak
ing it off," said he. "A coat is a coat as
long as it is dry ; when once it is wet it is
of no use whatever to anyone." He rolled
it up, put it in a dry corner, and went.
He stood for an hour or more in the
drenuhing rain, waving a handkerchief
that would not wave, but, let him stretch
it out as he might, droped in a wet, soj)-
ry 6tring by the side of the stick to which
it was fastened. 1 he rain which wetted
him would have wetted the St. Mala
folks, too; so none were abroad, or none
looked over towards the Grand Bey.
Heavy as the shower was, Hugh Rich
mond never once relaxed his efforts. Ue
It tbat he must do all that in him lay to
get Lucy away from that miserable jilaoe
liefore nightfall. And then he could not
help remeiuliering how they had Fat and
laughi'd and talked, lelieviiig all the
while that each moment might put an end
to their captivity, until all at once they
bad begun to see it. was by no moans so
easy a matter to get nway as they had
supjiosed. Hugh Richmond's heart sunk
within him when he thought of the deli
cate girl who was his companion in mis
fortune lming kept here without food or
shelter till low water. "We can cross by
the causeway alsmt four or five in the
morning but if we have to stay here until
then she will not 1 able to walk." This
was his thought, and it caused him to re
double his efforts, and dance and fling bis
ai'ins alK)V him, and gesticulate wildly
lx'foro the eyes of those who were not
there to sec and still the rain fell. It
was fulling more heavily now so heavily
that it was l'ginning to obscure nil dis
tant objects, and presently he could no
longer see Ht. Malo, nor indeed anything
but a blurred confusion of white rain
Even then he did not desist; but sud
denly be felt a light touch on his arm he
heard a sweet voice say, "Dear Mr. Rich
mond, give up trying to make them seo
you! Do come away! How can you stay
in this dreadful rain?"
"How can you come out iu it?" he cried
almost angrily; for he was vexed to think
she had left her shelter
"I could not stay there so long, know
ing you were getting wet,'' she answered,
simply. "Come back to the cave with me,
Let us make up our minds to wait until
the tide goes down."
Whatever they decided as to that, the
thing to lie done now was to get Lucy
out of the rain, lie came down from tho
bit of wall on which be was standing; he
turned to go back with her. He looked
at her hat, which sat so daintly on her
head that morning it was shapeless, and
the feather reduced to pulp; her dress
was black instead of grey; her face
sphisdiod with raindrops. Nevertheless,
he saw she was trying to bo brave and
cheerful there was even an attempt ut a
smile on her lips. The closely emptied
pasture-land was saturated with rain and
intensely slippery. She stumbled and foil.
She spring to her feet with alaugh.which
waa but a faint one but in another min
uto she fell once more. He helped her to
regain her feet, but this second time ho
drew her hand within his arm, and an she
still slipped, ho put his arm round her,
and supported her firmly. "Do not miinl
my helping you in this way," said 1m. "I
cannot lot you fall every moment and it
rains no hard, we must walk quickly."

of the best physicians of this city told me was Con

continually under the care of a physician, I grew

Dear Sir I write this to give you an account of
the cure of my mother by your medicines. Six
years ago, from the effects of a heavy cold, she was
reduced very low with Consumption, and was pro
nounced incurable by her physician. She had a
terrible cough, and some of her coughing spells
would last so long that she would turn black in the
face and often raise as much as a pint ot blood at a
time. When she was first taken suk she was quite
stout, but from the loss ofblnod by hemorrhages,
and the loss 01 sleep, stie was at last reduced to al
most a skeleton. While in this terrible condition.
I happened to read your advertisement in an (s

Dear Sir I have reason to know the value of
your Remedies: the Pulmonic Syrup, Seaweed

Dear Sir I write this to let you know that my
little daughter Henrietta, whom you saw oa your
visit to this city in the fall of 1(79, has entirely re
covered her health by the use of your Medicines.
1 wisn also at the same time to give you tome tacts
ii regard to her case which I did not have time to
do when you were here. My daughter was con
sidered a healthy child until the month of Novem
ber, 1H7H, when she was attacked with Kcmittant
revcr, wun wtucn sue was sick lor a long time
As she was recovering from it she tonka heavy
cold, which settled on her lungs, producing aeon
sunt hacking cough. As several of iier mother s
relatives had died of Consumption, we were much
troubled in regard to her case, csicctally as our
physician told us that her lungs were weak, and af
ter her cough had continued me time, that they
were seriously anecled. He prescribed many
things for her, principally cod liver oil 4nd stimu
lants j but she kept getting worse and worse, until
at List he told us that there was no hope for her re
covery ; and, to satisly us mat ne nafl done all Hint
it was possible lor mm to do, called in two otner
doctors. They, after consultation, agreed that she
must die, and that all we could do was to make her
comfortable while site lived. This was in the
month of September. i8m. Although we were as
sured by our physician that our little daughter could
not get wen, yet we were always iooiiiu over me
papers to try and find something that would at least
preserve her life for a tunc. One evening I read in
the Ai anv Kvknino Timks the statements of many
who had men cured ol serious lung diseases liy
vour Medicine, and feelini' that tliey at least could
do her no harm, I concluded to give tlum atrial.
1 therefore went to tne dtug store 01 Mr. Miller, a
gentleman with whom 1 was well acquainted, and
asked him what tic knew or thought of your Medi
cines.. He said: "1 have lie .1 id them highly
spoken of by my customer, and believe them to be
good. 1 men oougnt a bottle 01 me ruimnntc
Syrup, a well a some of ihe Mandrake I'iUs and
Seaweed Tonic, and tny daughter commenced to use
tnera according to the pruned directions, we an
soon saw that they were doing her good, w nen
he had taken them about two weeks we notiredby
the paper that you were to visit Albany profession
ally, and, taking advantage of this opportunity, we
had vou see her. Alihonuh vnu did not see her at
the worst, you of course remember her apparently
hopeless condition. W e cm only ay mat irom uie
Medicines you gave her she soon rapidly improved
and became healthy ond strong. We give you this
certificate or tetter that others may know of your
creat Medicines. I am satisfied that you tavro tne
life nf my child, as she was pronounced beyond med
ical am ov tiiree 01 ,11c best puysician ui un mjr
