not occur to bcr. She, could, In ber fear,
run away from him altogether; but to ask
any one to Inter peso on bcr behalf was
contrary to bor nature; and, after all,
be thought, Roland bad a right to see

Interview, but she would no longer avoid It.
At the turn of night tbo ralu camo. It
fell suddenly, like a vast sheet of water
from the heavens, with the roar and hiss
of a cataract. It beat down tbo flowers In
the gardens; It laid flat the corn in tbo
fields; it converted many a dry mountain
watercourse into a brawling stream. V1U
lagers, stsrtod out of their sleep by the
pouring oftho torrent, drow back their
curtains and gazed forth In terror ; aud the
thoughts of all turnod to the grand old
castellated mansion of the Darrclls and
Its doomed lord.

The girl was at the door in an instant,
with a white scared face.
"Father, is the Mill safe?"
Aye, for to-night, yes; but, Zeph, if it
rains like this for two nights more, tho
river will bo over its banks, and this timo
the Mill will go."
"And Dark Darrell?" said Zeph in a
low toiio, after a pause, tilled by the rush
of tho rain, mingling with and almost
drowning tho roar of tho weir.
"Why," replied lleston steadily, "he'll
die, and tho foreign mls.y too. You saw
ber with blm to-day, Zeph. I knew how
it would be; hers is tho life for which
he'll lose bis. It'll come about somohow.
They'll toll tho great boll in tho cbapol
for tbo last of the Darrolls beforo Sunday
oomes around again."
The storm began to lessen at throo
o'clock, but tbo ruin still fell In torrents
till nearly midday; and at that time the
Coalmcre was rushing rapidly between its
green banks, a swollen aud ungry tldo.
"The water's risen moro'n two feet
luce Blx o'clock this morning," said the
old lock-man to Zeph. "If I was your
father, I'd olear out of tho Mill ; for there's
DO saying what may bappon If the ralu
comes again to-night as it did last night,"
"We'll have to go to uncle's yonder,"

Early in the afternoon it became known
that Job lleston aud his daughter wero

who was only a cousin, though Zeph
called him "undo."
No one liked tbo Hostons; so, oven in
his present extremity, Job could obtain
little help but what he paid for. lie
knew that If ho bad sent up to tho Court

Of laborers to aid him; but Job would

to be all but obliterated by tho grim satis

lie. said llttlo Indeed, but glanced anxious
ly at river and sky, and once remarked
"Maybe tbis'll be Dark Uarrull's last
night on earth; tho Mill won't bo thoro
at (uurlse tomorrow."
Nothing but the rain and the fate of
fir l'hillp Darrell was talked about at tho
Larches. Roland's face on tho night be
fore had plainly showed that something
was very wrong; but ho bad vouchKafud
not a word of explanation, going straight
to his room; and now ho was ejunlly un
communicative. He sat at tho tablo whllo
the buzz of talk went on around him,
aud did not utter a word. Ills appetite
unnlly hearty had deserted him. Ho
drank oagerly, as If consumed by thirst,
but ate nothing; and his mother and sis.
ters arrived at tho conclusion that he had
teen lima, spokuu to bor, and been reject
ed. Hose tried stronuoUHly to banlxh Sir
riilllp's name from tho conversation, and
succeeded partially, but not entirely.
Directly after breakfast Iloland with
drew to his study and locked tho door;
and no one ventured to Intrude upon his
solitude. The heavy fall of rain till noon
frustrated his original Intention of seek,
ing lima In tho morning; but, as soon as It
abated, ha sallied forth; and, as he crossed
the hall, Uoao rushed up to blm breath
! "Kola ml, Kolaml, have ynu heard?"
"Heard what?" said bcr brother rough
ly. "I have board nothing."
"Why, Job lleston Is leaving the Mill I

"Ah, by Heaven"
Uoland paused suddenly, and a look

This was Just what Iloland desired; and
-ha entered tbo drawing-room, and waited

run away from him a second timer Mo I
lie heard a light step In tho oak passage,
tho door opened, aud the girl entered. Hhe
looked deathly white; und thore was a
latent dread In her . large eyes, but tho
cufved lips and lira brow showed nothing
but resolve. She drow back as Roland
camo forward eagerly, and held out her
hand, as If by that action to deny blm auy
other salutation until she knew whether
be returned it as lover or as cousin. Ro
"Well," he suld with a forced laugh,
which the angry Hush in bis cheeks and
the lie roe gleam In bis eyes belled," are wo
No, Roland." The gtrl colored deep,
ly, and her eyes fell. "I am sorry about
yesterday. I don't want to make excuses.
I did not forget my promise to you."
"You need not apologise," returuod her
cousin, declining tho proll'urcd hand. "I
know why you broke your promise; and It
is not worth whllo to ask whother your
other promise was mudo beforo I said
good-byo to you the other ulght or after,
"Othor promisol Whut do you mean?"
suld the girl haughtily. "I made no other
promise I went out to avoid you; that is
the plain truth nothing more."
"Very well, then; I wronged you," an
swered Roland, who did not doubt his
young cousin's truth. If lima had mada
au appolntmcut with Darrell, the might
have refused to answer questions; but sho
would uever stoop to un uutruth. "I
thought you had promised Sir Philip Dar
rell to meet him; for you were with blm.
You wero s:j en walking along the road
"What then?" said lima. "Is that to
very now or strango a thlnfr to do? nave
I never walked or rlddon with Sir Philip
before? What is It to you or any one lu this

"It Is everything tome, lima," cried tho
young man, if Darrell Is as I bellove ho

You know that I love you; and that I can

curse. You must believe that to love him
is fatal- "
"Thon bow con you save mo?" inter,
rupted lima, with (limbing eyes. "If I
love him, It is too lato I must share bis
"Love? No, no," suld Roland almost
wildly; "It Is not lovo only fancy. You
aro captlvatod by his graces; his very
doom has excited your Interests. Ho Is a
dastard to have tried to win you ; and he
tried from tho beginning. Look buck, and
you will see that I am not unjust to

guvo you a costly gift, such as no man
would have given to a girl bo did not
want to lay under an obligation to him.
Did ho mean nothing by thoso flowers,
nothing by "
Stop, stop, Roland! I will not listen
to you 1 How dare you speak so to me of
l'hillp Durrcll?" Tho slendor girl wemed
transformed Into a womun, as sho stood
erect, with stern fcrow and commanding
gesture, never more superbly beautiful
than now. "Leave mo, you have said too
much already. I should not have loved
you If I bad novor seen Sir l'hillp Dar
roll? 1 never liked you, novcr trusted
you, and you have proved that my iustinct
"Novor liked me, novcr trustod mol"
echoed Roland, drawing back a step. His
face was livid the look in bis eyes mado
tho girl tremble inwardly, though sho
showed nothing of this in her fearless mien
and dauntless gaze. Then you love Philip
Darrell, and he loves you?"
"Why should I deny It? Even If his
fate is scaled by a gipsy-woman's -curse,
am I not freo to choose death with him
rather than llvo without him?"
Roland stood still for a 'moment, gazing
on tho beautiful girl before him. He felt
as if ho could strike hor; but not so
hhould his vengeanco be worked out.
Suddenly ho burst into a discordant laugh.
"Yes, I suppose you have a right to
choose your fato.' Yours, is a fair life to
win from blm tho MieedfuT sacrifice.' A
man might well loss all for yuu. Yours
will bo merry murrlago-chimes. Ha, bat
Tell them not to toll the minute-bell whou
they bring the lust Darrell homo with his
bride! No, I am not mad; you need not
recoil with thut while face. It will bo
whiter to-morrow by this tlino!"
He luughed again, and, dashing opon
the door, rushed from tho room and the
bouse, leaving lima lu the full belief that
his mind was unhinged.
Au hour later Roland Sablno stood lu
the little wood near the Coalmere, talking
in low tones to Job und Zeph lleston;
und, us the trio parted, Zeph nodded with
a resolute look of evil in her black eyes,
and said, "All right; I'll do It;" and Job
dropped soma money Into his pocket and
suld, "Areud all one to mo sir."
Then Koluud turned back towards the
. village, but not homewards. He went no
further than a deserted burn a llttlo way
up tho slope ; and there ho sat down, with
tho wide landscape of hill und wold and
river before blm, and his heart full of a
foul design that ho scarcely cared oven to
try to veil with a euphemism.
He had not told Zeph the whole truth
when ho had enlisted her services; he bad
not told hor that lliuu should have ono
chanco for her life, and thut thut chance
wiui to lly with him; he had only told her
the alternative, as though it were tho
entlro scheme; und, if lima choso that,
his crime would perish with her. The
Hostons dared not betray blm, for his
guilt wus theirs, and Zoph regarded her
self us lu some sort au Instrument to fulfill
tho curse of bcr ancestress. Moreover, lu
speaking to ber first, ho hud filled her
foolish undisciplined hourt with wild hopes
for tho future, till lie guvo the girl cause
to think that bo vvuld some day make her
his wife. What tun result would bo when
Zeph found herself deceived Roland did
not ask hlinsolf; ho was not a man who
at the host of times was able to forecast
beyond a short period, or to hedgo round
auy contemplated misdeed with safe
guards; und now he was In no condition of
mind for even ordinary precautions. Had
Sir l'hillp Darrell at that moment appearod
before blm, ho . would must likely b-vo
sprung at him with the ferocious Instinct
of a wild Imast, without a second's consid
eration of his inferiority to his antagonist
or of the consequences to himself if even
he succeeded In taking the hated life.
Startling was tho cbanga that evil pas
sinus had wrought In the young man In a
few hours. J I In cheeks wore livid and hag
gard, his nether Hp was drooping, and his
eyes were wild and bloodshot; any one
who had seen him teated in that dreary
place, with his elbows ou his knees and
his hands propping his chin, might well,
have deemed that he had committed or
contemplated some deadly erlnio.
Although the rain had ceased at Scarth
Abbot, It was pouring down over the far
off hills, and the storm might sweep over
Hoartli Abbot again that night. The river
rose steadily; and numbers of villagers
watched anxiously the progress of tht
floods, and predicted that whether tht rain
came or not the river would certainly
ovcrllow at tho turn of the night, If not ,
bofotcj though whut mysterious lullueuce
the midnight hour had upon tides and cur
rent was, not explainod.
Klack and heavy tho clouds rolled up
from tho west, till the whole sky was one
black canopy, beneath which the river
rushed foaming aud roaring; and against
the inky black ground tho doomed Mill
stood out white und ghostlike,
Just when durkuexs hud fallen on tho
scene, two tlgurus cainu out from the wood
and passed down to the lock bridge, und one
a inuii's figure vunlnhcd In the shadow;
tho other ran swiftly towards the Uningo
garden, which, ut the buck of the bouse,
stretched to within a lew hundred yurtls of
As Zeph for It was sbe drew near to
the guto of the garden, her keen eyes
detectod a form standing just without;
and her vengeful heart gave a glad bound.
The next momt nt I Una hud sprung for ward,
aud Zeph was panting for breath, pressing
her bund to her side.
"What is it? What is the matter?"
asked the Canadian hurriedly, her thoughts
flying Instantly to Roland, who bud left
her so In distraught a spile, of mind.
"Oh, lady," faltered tbo girl, ! was
coming to tell you I daren't tell them at
the Larches; und tho young Siiutrc wus
fond of you; wasn't he, lady?"
"do on," said Hum, grasping .Zbph's
wrist aud speaking tiito sternly In iter
agony und terror, "W'hatTias bnpuiivd?"
"He's down there, lady In uncle's cut.
tago drowned. Father found him "
Hut lima waited for no inure; sho ran
duwu the slope llectly as a deer. Sho hud
reached the bottom, and had turned to
ask Zeph, who wus a little way behind,
where the cottage was, when u stalwart
form which even In that second she rccog.'
nlsed as that of Job lleston sprung out
before her, aud, before she could utter u
cry or word, a thick shawl was thrown
over bur head, und she was lilted in a
grasp against which her wildest struggles
would have been vain, She did not struggle,
she did not try. to cry out it would have
been useless if she had. She perceived,
even in that bewildering moment of hor
rer nover to be forgotten, that sho was tho
victim of a terrible deception thut Job
lleston and bis daughter were but the
tools of Roland Sabine.
"Don't hurt her, father,", sho heard
Zeph say, as she was beiug borne rapidly
towards tho weir; but its roar grew
louder and louder, so that Job's muttered
reply was lust in the thunder of the angry
waters. Were they going to throw her
over? She almost wished they wero. liut
no; shu was carried on still on, over the
lock bridge. They were taking her to the
Mill the Mill that would be washed away
that night 1 Where was Zeph now,? Gouc?
Ah, Heaven, there was some scuso of pro
tection while in ber presence 1 She wus
a woman, evil though lima knew her to be,
lima did not fuint, not once did her
keen wits desert her. Every faculty was
shurpencd. Sho quickly revolved the
feasibility of any appeal to ber captor,
and dismissed it as worso tbuu futile. In
tho first place, Heston was firmly con
vinced thut Dark Darrell would perish in
that night's floods, and therefore ho would
only laugh ut her if she promised him u
reward from her lover If he would save
ber; in the second place, she felt certain
that, though the roarof the weir prevented
ber from hearing anything else, Roland
Sabine was close at bund, und possibly
nay, probably armed ; so that treachery
on Job's part would bo instantly frus
trated. Her cousin's object wus, she thought, to
Imprison her in the Mill, and to try to
forco her Into a promise to ily with him,
leaving her, if she refused, to perish in the
floods; and, horribly as this fate was, it
was Elysium compared to thut which sho
bud first conceived, hud which even now
was not beyond possibility.
Hor hurried masoning was cut short by
Job pausing; then lio commenced to as
cend steps. Ho was going into the .Mill!
Then for the first time sho heUrd steps fol
lowing. On they went, still on; they bad
passed tho first floor. Next a somewhat
stcop ladder was climbed, something was
set down by tbo man who fullowod Job
the man was Rolund, lima knew und the
next moment she was put down gently,
the shawl removed, aud sho l'ouud herself
in tho disused corn-loft from the narrow
window of which sho hud gazed u few days
beforo, and Rolund Sabine stood before
ber, tho dim rays of a lantern shining upon
his ghastly face.

When Pat was naked why he was

it would bo a poor woman that could

besides Pat has Ikhsu marriod for tho

$3 per week, besides caring for a largo
family of children. And what wages

evor found its way to her wardrobe.
And yot hor husband was just aa well

novor allow my money to slip through
my fingers without knowing what it
goes for." When there was unything
ucodwl In tho houso ho got it, ami if his

Ho said that Cheap Johnny was his pat

to boo that tho best was tho cheapest;
too bigoted to believe that his wife's
judgment was better than his in any
Bticn matters. 1 never know her to havo

Talk to him about letting his wife
handle a share of tho profits of tho farm,
ho would tell you tout women don't
know how to uso money. If they don't,
its for tho narao reiwon that the slaves
did not know how to use their freedom
when ilrstemnucipated. It was bocauso
they nover hud it to use.
I have no doubt but that many farm

"Stave ahead," said his companion,

"I've made some pretty good tlmo
myself," said the 'second engineer. "I
took a train through from New York to
1'hiladelphia in eighty minutos,"
"Oh, that's child's play," said the first
engineer. "Why, man, I've mado that
run myself, and with one piston-rod
gone at that. I'd just got back from a
npecia.1 run up through tho coal regions,
when word came that one of the big
gun i jf the company wished to start at
oi ire fur rhihiunlphia. I knew what
that meant, so I jumped aboard long
legged Jim, hitched a construction ear
behind tho tender, and a drawing-room
conch behind that and reported for duty.
I knew my engine, and I ran up forty
pounds of steam niorouor she was mark
ed to carry. When tho word came I lot
everything slide aud tho old boy just
jumped in the air. Then ho settled
down to his work. Everything was clear
iu front of us, and I let him out for all

"What!" ejaculated the second en
gineer. "Sure!" said the first engineer. "And
wo hadn't been out of tho station fifteen
minutes beforo every blasted boiler pipe
was red hot, and wo had to keep Hood
ing the cab with water to keep from
burning the darn thing up. Oh, wowau
just ettin there, my boy, and I didn't
let up a pound. Every time wo took a
curve the outside wheels would bo at
least a foot up iir tho air, and once or
twice the tender jumped clean on to the
ties, and old Jim would yank her back
"Ain't you kind of stretching opolnt?"
asked tho second engineer.
"Not a bit of it, said the first en

"Yc; I knew I oouldn't do It lnsido

at that; for when wo ran into the station
we snm-slied in tho bumpers and ripped
up about twenty feet o' the platform be
fore old long-legged Jim would agree
the run was over, but I got tho cheek,"
and tho Yankee engineer thoughtfully
drained his glass, as his friend ordered
the barkeeper to "set 'em up again."
' About Grows.
Professor Linden said a good word
the other day at Buffalo for thut much
persecuted bird, tho common crow. Tho
crow of America, belongs to a scattered
family of about two hundred species, in
cluding among tlmm tho buzzard, jay,
raven and magpie. Of tho genua proper
to which the crow belongs, seven exam
ples are found in tho United States, tho
great black raven being at tho head. In
the wilderness about one hundred miles
from liullalo, on the Miorcs of Lako On
tario, ravens were found. Their nests
were so secluded as rarely to bo discov
ered. So w ury were tho birds that Mr.
Linden had found it impossible to ob
tain a Kpecimeti. 'J'hoy wero reported
more abundant on the Canada shore of
Luko Ontario, but it was impossible to
procure a specimen even there, though a
liberal reward had been offered.
The crow was only preserved from an
nihilation by its great cunning. Even in
captivity tho bin! displays a degrco of
sagacity which almost resomblos human
intelligence. Mr. Linden admitted that
the crow could hardly bo 'called a sweet
singer; still when tamed ho made a very
Interesting pet. On the whole, ho might
safely be set down ns a usuful bird aud
a real friend of tho farmer. He oats
largo quantities of noxious Insocts, and
though he has a bad habit of pulling up
young tender shoots of grain, it was a
question whether tho damage, was not
moru than eomnensatod by tho number
of tamo of beetles thus brought to light
