IDE STORY OF IHE CHJUI PIER.
Most visitors to l'li itiliton yrctcr thp

nilicent udair. It is in tho fxslikmalilH
town, for fashion will co wt'stwanl; it
Is larger, more commodious, more fre
quented. Go to the Went Tier when
you will, there is always something to
see; iK'iuitiful women, pretty girls, fash
lonablo lielles pronienatle incessantly.
There are times when it is crowded,
and there is even a ilitlieulty in making
room for all who come. No wonder the
elite of Brighton like the West I'ier; it
is one of the most enjoyable spots in
Kngland, every luxury and eomfnit are
there, a good library, plenty of newspa-
F1T9, elegant little shops, excellent re
reshment rooms, fine music; and then
the lovelv blue, dimpling sea. the little
boats with their white sails, like white
winged birds on the water, the grand
stretch of the waves, the blue sky over
bead, and the town, with its tine, tall
bouses shining in the sunlight, the line
of white cliff, and the beach where tho
children are at play. You go down to
the wonderful jetty, which, to me, was
one of the most mysterious and roman
tic of places, there" the water is of the
deepest, choicest emerald green, and it
wasties the wonderful net-work of poles
with a soft, lapping sound. Leautitul to
bear. You can stand there with only a
rail between you and the deep, green
water, watching the fisher-boats out on
the deep; watching, perhaps, the steam
er with its loud of passengers, or look
ing over the wide, sunlit waves, dream
ing dreams born of the sea out of the
world; alone in the kingdom of fancy;
there is always something weird in the
presence of deep, silent, moving waters.
There is always plenty of life, pidety,
and fashion on tho West l'ier. It is a
famous place, not for love-making but
for flirtation; a famous place for study
ing human nature; it famous place for
passing a pleasant bout. You may
often meet great celebrities on the
West Tier; fares familiar at the JIoue
of Lords, familiar at Court, familiar at
the opera are to lie seen there during
the season; beautiful faces that have
grown I'Hle and worn with the excite
ment or a Ixiudon campaign, and here,
as they are bent thoughtful;' over the
green waters, the bracing air brings
sweet roses, the lines fade, the eyes
brighten; there is no such beautilier as
a sea breeze, no bloom so radiant and
charming as that brought by the wind
from the sea.
On the West Tier you will find all the
beauty, rank, and fashion of Brighton;
you will see costumes u r-n t,-, dresses
that are artistic and elegant; you will
see faces beautiful and well-known;
you will hem a charming ripple of con
versation; you will witness many pleas
ant and piquant adventures; but if you
want to dream; if you want to give up
your whole heart and soul to the poetry
of tho sea; if you want to listeu to
yourself away from the world; if you
want to hear the music of the winds,
their whispers, their lullabies, their
must go (o llio"()l'd Chain' l'ier. Asa
rule you will find few there, but you
may know they are a epecial few; you
will see the crave, quiet face of the
thinker, who lias chosen that fcpot be
cause he does not want to be disturbed
by the frou-frou of ladies' dresses, or the
music of their happy voices; he wants
to be alone with the sen and the wind.
It often happens that you tind a pair
of verv happy lovers there, they go to
the side and lean over the railing as
though their sole object in life was to
watch the rippling sea. Do not believe
them, for you will hear the murmur of
two voices, and the theme is always
"love." If you go near them they look
shyly at vou, and in a few minutes
move gently awav. Ah, happy lovers,
make bay while the sun shines; it does
not shine always, even over tlm Chain
If you want to watch the waves, to
hear'tbeir rolling music, if you want to
see the seagulls whirl in the blue ether.
If you want to think, to read, to be,
alone, to fill your mind with beautiful
thoughts, go to the Chain l'ier at Brigh
ton. There is a jetty an old-fashioned,
weird place, where the green water
rushes swiftly and washes round the
green wood, where there is alwavs a
beautiful sound of the rising and falling
of the sea; where you mav sit on one of
the old-fashioned Beats, seeing nothing
but water and sky around you. until
you can fancy yourself out in the wide
ocean; until you can wrap voiir thoughts
and your senses in the verv mists of ro
mance. Time was when the Chain l'ier
at Brighton was one of the wonders of
England, and even now, with its pic
turesque chains and arches, I like it
better than any other.
1 may as well tell the truth while I
write of it. I know that if the dead
can rise from their graves I shall re
visit me t.iiain lier at Brighton. I
spent one hour there that was '- hour
ot mv life, niadly happy, bewilder
ing hour! I remember the plank of
wood on which my feet rested; I re
member the railing, over which I heard
the green, deep water, with the white
Hailed boat in the distance-sails like
the white wings of angels beckoning me
away; the blue sky with the few lleecv
white clouds.-the wash of the water's
against the woodwork of the pier; and
I remember the face that looked down
into mine all Heaven lav in it for me;
the deep water, the blue skv. the hand
some face, the measured ry'thms of the
sea, the calm tones of the clear waves
are all mixed in one dream. I cry out
in anguish at times that Heaven may
send me such another, but it can never
be! If the dead can return, I shall
stand once more where I stood then. I
will not tell mybtory now. but rather
te 'V1,1? tragedy with which the Chain

Iu the beautiful anemones had lost its
interest. 1 could not smile at tho King
Crabs; tho reading tables, and tho mu

was walking through the magnificent
balls of the Aquarium, inwardly my
heart was beating to the mournful
rythms of tho sea. The clock had not
struck seven when I came out, and
there lying before me was the Chain
I went there as naturally as the needle
goes to the magnet. The moon shone
with a fitful light, at times it was
bright as day, flooded the sea with sil
ver, and showed the chain and the arch
es of the pier as plainly as the sun could
have done showed tho running of the
waves, they were busy that evening,
and came m fast, spreading out in
great sheets of white foam, and when
the moonlight did touch the foam, it
was beautiful to see.
But my lady moon was coquettish
everv now and then she hid her face lie
bind' a drifting cloud, then the soft,
thick gloom fell again, and the pier lay
like a huge shadow the very jlaee. I
thought, iu which a tortured heart
could grow calm; there was only the
wind and the sea, nothing more. I
would go to the spot where we two
should stand together never more. I
fancied, as I paid for admission at the
pate, that the face of the person who
received it expressed some surprise. It
must have seemed a strange taste; but
ah me! there had bloomed for me for
one short hour the flowers of paradise.
The thick, soft gloom was deeper on
tho pier. 1 rememlier that, as 1 walked
down, 1 heard from the church clocks
the hour of eight. All along the coast
there was a line of light; the town was
brilliantly lighted, and when I looked
across the waters, the west pier was iu
aU its radiance; the sound of tie music
floated over the waves to me. the light
of t lie colored lamps shone fr and
wide. I could see the moving mass of
people: here I was almost alone. I saw
a gentleman smoking his cigar. I saw
the inevitable lovers. I saw an old man
with a wan face, I saw two young men.
almost boys what bad brought them
there I coiild not think.
I reached the pier-head, where the
huge lamp had been lighted, and shone
like a great brilliant jewel. 1 sat down;
there was no greater pleasure for me
than an evening spent there, At find
all was quite still: the gentleman smok
ing his cigar walked up and down; the
two youths, who had evidently mistak
en the nature of the pier, and considered
themselves greatly injured by the ab
sence of music and company, went
away; the oid man sat still for some
time, then he lett.
I was alone then with the smoker,
who troubled himself very little about
hip. The coquettish moon threw a
wide, laughing gleam around, then van
ished. A whole pile of thick, dark
clouds came up fiora the west and hid
her fair face by them the thick, soft
gloom had deepened into darkness. I
was far from exacting anvthing tragi
cal as I sat there, cold, desolate, and
lonely. As it was, the Chain l'ier was
more like home to rae than any othor
spot on earth, because of the one hour
I had spent there,
The wind began to freshen and blow
coldly where I sat. I had no motive in
changing rny seat, except to escape just
the sharpness of the breeze. I crossed
to the other side, where the white line
of clilT. lay away from the brilliant
lights of the west pier, hidden behind
I cannot tell how it was, but to-night
many ghostly stories that I had read
about piers came to my mind. I'or In
stance, now, how easy" it would be for
any man to steal up to me through the
thick, soft, shadowy mist, and murder
me before I had time to even utter a
cry. I might be thrown over into the
Then I said to myself what a foolish
thought. I was close to many people,
such a murder was impossible. Yet I
was foolish enough to turn my head and
try to peer through the darkness if any
one was near.
The tall, slender figure of a woman
dressed in a dark cloak was slow ly walk
ing up the middle of the pier. She
could not see me, but I saw her plain
ly, distinctly. I noticed the grace of
her uuAeif.ents. her grand carriage.
She was closely veiled, so that I could
not see her face. J Jut, uolesB I was
much mistaken, she carried a bundle
of something held tightly under her
If this had been an ordinary woman I
should not have noticed her, beyond the
passing regard of the moment; it was
the grace of her walk that attracted my
attention, and I felt sure that as she
passed me by I heard the sound of bit
ter, passionate sobbing.
The old story over again, I thought,
Borrow and pain, longing and love! But

minutes. 1 knew, bv instinct, that she
was erying Mlterly; "then 1 was struck
by the iiiiiiiiiCi- iii which she looked
round; it v,;is evident to me that she
wished to be quire alone. At timea the
waves playing round the wooden pillar
made some unusual nound; she turned
quickly, ai though she suspected some
one was near her. Once a gentleman
stolled leisurely down the pier, stood
for a few minutes watching the eca in
silence, then went away; while he was
there she stood still and motionless as
a statue; then she looked round with a
stealthy gaze- a gaze so unlike the free
grand grace of her movements, that I
was struck by it. she could not see me,
because J was in the d,.,.n shadow, but
I could see every gesture of hers. 1 saw
her raise her taee to the darkening
skies, audi telt that .some despairing
prayer was oh her lips, and the reason
why I could see h. r mi plainly was this,
that she stood just where the rays of
the lamps fell bright v. '

glance as though so desirous of being
alone? 1'resently she seemed to realize
that she stood where the light fell

SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 10, 1883,

one or two of them were broken and had
not been repaired; in a more frequent
ed placo it might, perhaps, have been
dangerous. She did not seem to notice
It. Sho stood for some minutes iu si
lence, then I heard again bitter weep
ing, passionate sobs, long drawn sighs.
1 heard a smothered cry of "Oh, Heav
en! oh, Heaven! have pity," and then
a sickly gleam of light came from the
sky, and by its light I saw that she took
the bundle from uiuler her arm. 1
could not see what it was or what it
held, but she bent her head over it, sho
kissed it, ah; with what passion of
teats, kissed it, subbed over it with
passionate sobs, then raised it above
the railings and let it fall slowly into
There was a slight splash, no other
sound. As she raised tno bundle 1 saw
distinctly that it was something wrap
ped in a grey and black shawl.
I swear 'before Heaven that no
thought of wrong canio to my mind; I
never dreamed of it. 1 had watched her
first because the rare grace of her tall
figure and of her walk came to mo as
a surprise, then because she was evi
dently iu such bitter sorrow, then be
cause she seemed so desirous of being
alone, but never did one thought cross
my mind that there was a shadow of
blame or wrong: I should have been
far more on the alert had I thought so.
1 was always of a dreamy, sentimental,
half-awake kind of mind: I thought of
nothing more than a woman, desperate,
perhaps, with an unhappy love, throw
ing the love-letters and presents of a
faithless lover into the sea-iiuthing
more. I repeat this most emphatically,
as I should not like any suspicion ot in
dolence or indifference to rest upon me.
A slight snlash, not of an) thing
heavy, no other sound; no cry, no
word a moment's pause in the running
of the waves, tiien they went on again,
gailv' as ever. wahiiig the wooden pil
lars', and wreathing them with fresh
seaweed. The tall figure, with the head
bent over the rail, might have been a
statue for all the life or stir there was
Ouitea quarter of an hour passed,
and she did not .stir. I began to wonder
if she were d- ad: ln-r head was bent
the whole time, watching the waves u.i
thev ran hurrying pa.'t. Then the lady
I.iooii relented, illid showed her fair
face again; a flood of silver light fell
over the sea, each wave seemed to
catch some of it, and break with a thou
sand ripples of light, --the while clitts
caught it. it (ell on the old pier, and
the tail black figure stood out in bold
relief again t the moonlit sky.
I was almost startled wheii she turn
ed puind and I saw her face quite
plainlv. Tliesamelightth.it revealed
her pr'itty little face and figure, threw a
deeper shade over me. She looked anx
iously up and down, yet bv a singular
I'atabtv never looked at the corner of
the woollen building where I sat. I
have often vtondeieil since that I did
not cry out wlcn I saw thai face, so
uonde'rfully beautiful, but so marble
white, mi sad. so intent, so earnest, the
beautiful eyes wild with pain, the beau
tiful mouth quivering. I can .see it now.
and 1 shall see it until I die.
There was a low. broad brow, and
golden brown hair clustered upon it,
hair that was like a crown: the face
was oval-haied, exquisitely beautiful,
with a short upper lip. u full lovely un
der one. and a peihvlly modelled chin,
But it was the taee, ot a woman almost
mad with de-pair.
"Oh. Heaven', if I dare-it" I dare!"
she cried. Sue flung op !it hands with
the gesture ot one who has no hope;
bhe looked over at the :,ea. onco more at
the pier, then slowlv ttin.y.l o-iv.
agtiA, ,.; i neard the words.
Oh, :ier.ven' if 1 dare-if I dare!"
She then walked nlowly away, and 1
lost sv,'lit of In r under the silent arches;
but I could riot forget her. What a
face! what beauty, what assion. what
pain, what love aid despair, what good
ness and power! What a hare! Whin
should I ever forget it?
Impelled by curio.-ity, I went to the
railings, and 1 .-loud w la-re she stood. I
looked down. How deep and fathom
less it .seemed, th.s runmug sea! What
was it she had dropped theie? Iu mv
mind's eye I sav a mot p itheti',- little
bundle made of loe letters; 1 pictured
them tied with a pretty laded liblroi,;
there would be dried flowers, each one
a memento of . some: happy occasion. 1
could fancy the dried roses, the wither
ed forget-me-nots, the vioh-ts. with
some faint odor lingering still around
them. Then there would be a valen
tine, perhaps two or three; a photo
graph, and probably an engagement
ring, rdio had flung them awav into
the depths of the sea, and only Heaven
knows what hopes and love she had
flung with them! I could understand
now what that crv meant "J f I dare
if I dare!"'
It meant that if she dare she would
fling herself into the sea after them!
How many hopes had been llung, like
hers, into those black depths!
Then I came to the conclusion that I
was. to say the least of it. a simpleton
to waste so much time and thought
aliout another person's affairs.
I rememlier that, as I walked slowly
.down the pier, I met several people, and
that 1 felt a glow of .!tai.nre at the
thought that some people had tho K"od
sense to prefer the Chain i 'h i. And
then I went home.
A game of billiards, a long chat in
the smoking-room, ought to have dis
tracted in - mind from the little incident
1 had witnessed, but It did not. My
bed-room faced the sea. and I drew up
the blind so that I mi ,ht look nt it once
tnor The beautiful sea has many
weird aspects, none stranger than wheii
it lies heaving millcnly under the light
of the moon. I';neina!e 1, charmed, I
stood and watched it. The moon had
changed her mind, she meant to shine
now; the eloinM had all vanished: the
sky was dark iiiul blue; the stars were
shining; but the wind had quickened,
and the waves rolled iu briskly with
white silvery foam marking their pro
gress. The Chain l'ier stood out quite elear
and distinct iu the moonlight, very fair
and shapely it looked. Then I went to
sleep and dreamt of the white, beauti
ful, desperate faceof the woman who
bad, I believed, throw n hi r lovo-letters
into the sea. The wind grew rougher
and the sea grew angry during the
night, when nt times I woke froiu my
sleep I could hear them. Ah! long la
fore this the love-letters had been de
stroyedhad been torn by tho swift
waves; the faded flowers and all tho
pretty love tokens were done to death
in the. brisk waters. I wondered if, in
thought. Hint beautiful, desperate wom
an would go back to that spot on the
The morningfolli wingdawnod bright
and calm; there was a golden sunlight
and a blue sea: why the color of the
water should change ho greatly, 1 could
not think, but change it did. I have
been it clear as an emerald, and I have
seen it us blue as the lakes and seas of
Italy. This morning it wore a blue
dress, and a thousand brilliants danced
on its broad, sweet bosom. Already
there were a number of people on the

and were full of life and activity. It
must have been some kuid of holiday.
I forget fi r what the flags were flying,
and there, was a holiday look about the
town. I thought I would walk for ten
minutes before my breakfast. I went
towards tho Chain I'ier, drawn by the
irresistible attraction of the face I had
seen there hist evening.
It struck me that there was an unusu
al number of people about the Chain
l'ier; quite a crowd had collected at the
gate. I'eople were talking to each oth
er in an excited fashion. I saw ono or
two policemen, and I came to the con
clusion that some accident or other had
happened on the pier. I went up to the
crowd two or three boatmen stood
leaning over the rail.
"What Is the matter?" I asked.
"Matter, sir," renlied one; "there is
matter enough. There must have been
murder, or soiuethiiig very much like
it, done on that pier hwst night."
"Murder!" I cried, with a beating
heart; "do not use such a horrible
"It is a horrible thing, sir. but it has
been done," replied the boatman.
I cannot tell why the word "murder"
struck me with such horror. I stood
looking at the old boatman like one
struck with dismay. I was on the point
of saying that it was quite Impossible,
for 1 had been on the Chain l'ier hist
night, and had seen nothing of the
kind. Some impulse restrained me.
"I would not go so far as to say it was
murder,' interrupted a sturdy boatman.
"I have been about here a great many
years, and I have seen some queer
things. 1 should hardly call this mur
der." "It was a life taken away, whether
you call it murder or not," said the old
"May be but I am not sure. I have
seen many mad with misery, but mur
der is a rare thing."
"What is it?" I asked.
"A child, sir only a little child,"
said the sturdy lioatinaii. "The Inidy of
a little child found drowned oil the i'ier
Now, rthy should I start, and trem
ble, and grow sick at heart? What had
it to du with me? I knew nothing of
my murdered child, yet great drops
formed on my brow, and my very heart
"A little child found drowned," I re
peated; "but how do you know it was
murdered? It may have fallen into the
"It was not old enough for that, sir,"
said the elder boatman, "it is but a fair
little mite a baby girl; not more than
three weeks old."
Ah, why did the beautiful, desperate
face I bad seen the night before flash
before my eyes then? The boatman
"It is plain to my eyes that it is a
murder; although the child is but a
tender babe; all the greater murder for
that, u bigger child might have helped
itself, this one could not."
"Tell me about it? ' I said.
Ah! if my heart would but step beat
ing, or if the beautiful, desperate face
would but fade from my memory.
"It was James Clayton who found it,"
continued the old man. "He was at
work in the jetty this morning when he
caught sight of something moving up
and down with the waves; at first be
thought it looked like an old rag. and
he took no notice of it, then something
about it attracted Lis attention more
and more. He went nearer and found
that it was a grey and black shawl, that
had o'iurlit no mnoe l:re hooks which
had been driven into the wooden pillars
for some purpose or other a woman's
shawl, sure as could bo; oiue lady, he
thought, had dropped it over the' p., r
and it had caught on these hooks In-low
the water. Jim was plea-ed; bethought,
if worth anything, he might get a trifle
of rew ard for it: if imt, Im might take
it home to his old mother.
"He took his boat to the spot, but,
sir, to Jim's surprise, be found it was
not only a shawl, but a bundle; he
thought he had found a treasure, and
hastened to get it quickly off the hooks.
It had been caught more tightly by ac
cident than it could have been" placed
there by human hands. It was tight on
the hooks, and he had to tear the shaw I
to get it off. lie lost no time opening
it. and there was a little, fair child,
drowned and dead.
"It was not a pleasant sight, sir, on a
bright morning, when the sunshine was
dancing over the waves. Jim said his
heart turned quite faint when be saw
the little white body such a fair little
mite, sir. it was enough to make the
very angels weep; Some woman. sir
Heaven forbid that it was the mother
some woman had dressed it iu pretty
white, clothes. It had a white gown,
with lace, and a soft white woollen cap
on the little golden head. A sorry
sight, sir a sorry sight! Jim said that
when he thought of that little tender
iKidy sw inging to and fro w ith the waves
nil night, he could not keep the tears
from his eyes.
"It was meant to sink, you see, sir,"
continued the man, with rough energy
"it was never meant to be caught.
But the great Cod, He is above all, and
He knows the little one was not to sink
to the bottom like lead. It is true, sir,
and murder will out."
"Hut is nothing known?" I asked.
"Surely such a thing could never be
done without someone seeing or know
ing something about it."
"I am afraid, Hir, no one knows but
the one w ho diil it. Some woman, sir,
hud dressed the little thing a man
would never have thought of the sol t
woollen cap. And I can tell you anoth
er thing, sir a man would never have
killed a child like that; not that I am
upholding men some of them arc
brutes enough but I do lpit think any
man would throw a little babe into the
water. When a woman is bad, sho s
bad, and there Is nothing vile enough
I thought of the beautiful nnd des
perato faco, Heaven grant that she
might have nothing to do with this!
Artf yet the black and grey shawl?
" hereabouts was it?" I asked.
He pointed with his hand to tho very
spot where she had stood.
"Just there." he said. "It was there
the little bundle was thrown, and there.
Just below the line of the jetty, it was
caught by tho hooks."
