THE STORY OF THE CHAIN PIER.
"A boatman found ft, and the bundle
contained a little- drowned child a fair
waxen babe, beautiful even though it
bad lain in the salt, bitter waters of the
green sea all night. Now cornea the
horror, Mrs. Fleming. When the man
who saw the scene went, after some
yeara, to visit the friend whom he loved
so dearly, he recognized in that friend's
wife the woman who threw the child
into the seal"
Again came the sound that was like
"What was that man to do?" I
asked. "He could not be silent; the
friend who loved and trusted him must
have been most basely deceived he
could not hide a murder ; yet the woman
was so lovely, so lovable ; she was seem
ingly so good, so charitable, so devoted
tolier husband, that he was puzzled,
tortured; at last he resolved upon tell
ing her. 1 have told ?"
v Then silence, deep and awful, fell
over us; it lasted until I saw that I
must break it. She lay motionless on
tho ground, her face buried in the
"What should you have done in that
man's place, Mrs. Fleming?'1 1 asked.
Then she raised her face; it was
whiter, more despairing, more ghastly
than I liad seen it on the pier.
"I knew it must come," she wailed.
"Oh! Heaven, how often have I dreaded
this I knew from the first.''
"Then it irrw you?" I said.
"It was me;" she replied. "I need
not try to hide it any longer, why
should I? Every leaf on every tree,
every raindrop that has fallen, every
wind that has whispered has told it
aloud ever since. If I hide it from you
someone else will start up and tell. If
I deny it, then the. very stones in tho
street will cry it out. Ves, it was me

My heart went out to her in fulness
of pity poor unhappy woman! sobbing
lier heart out; weeping, as surely no
one ever wept before. I wished that
Ileaven had made anyone else her judge
than me. Then she sat up lacing me,
and I wondered what the judge must
think when the sentence of death pass
es his lips.. I knew that this was the
sentence of death for this woman.
"Von never knew what passed after,
did you?" I asked.
"No not at all," was the half sullen
replv "not at all."
".Did you never purchase a llrighton
paper, or look into a Jxjndon paper to
".No," she replied.
"Then I will tell you," I said. and . I
told her all that had passed. How the
people had Ktnnd round the little baby,
and the men cursed the cruel hands
that bad drowned'the little babe.
"Did they curse my hands?" she
asked, and I saw her looking at them in
"Yes; the men said hard words, but
the women were pitiful and kind; one
kissed the. little face, dried it. and
kissed it with tears in her eyes. Was it
your own child?"
There was a long pause, a long si
lence, a terrible few minutes, and then
"l'es, it was my child."
Her voice was full of despair; sho
folded her hands and laid them on her
"I knew it must come," she said.
"Now let me t'-y to think what I must
do. I meet now that which I have
dreaded so long. Oh, Lance! my love

with impassioned appeal. "You will

mine! you could not kill me! Oh, for
Heavens snke, say you will not tell
Then I found her on her knees at my
feet, sobbing with passionate cries I
must not till him, it would kill him.
She would go away, if I said she must;
she would go from the heart and the
home where she had nestled in safety so
long; she would die; she would do any
thing if only I would not tell him. lie

"You must calm yourself," I Haid.
"It t talk reasonably. Wo cannot

She beat her white hands together,
and I could not still hercrios; they were
all for "Lance!" "her love Lance!"
"You must listen to me," I said; "I

I told her how I had been attracted
to the pier; I told her all that was said
by the crowd around; of the man who
carried the little dead child to the work
house; of the tiny little body that lay
in its white dress in tho bare, largo,
desolate room, and of the flowers that
the kindly matron hud covered it with.
I told her how I had taken compas
sion on the forlorn, little creature, had
purchased its grave, und of tho white
stone with "Marah" upon it.
"Marah, found drowned." And then,
jtoor soul poor hapless soul, she clung
to my hands and covered them with
kisses and tears.
"Did you did you do that?" sho
moaned. "How good you aro, but you
will not tell him. I was mad when 1
did. that, mad as women often are with
sorrow, shame, and despair. I will Buf
fer anything if you will only promise
not to tell Lance." .
"Do you think it is fair," I asked,
"that he should bo so cruelly deceived?
that he should lavish the whole love
of bis heart on a murderess?"
I shall never forget her. She sprang
from the ground where she had been
kneeling and stood erect before me.

" You had bettor tell Lance, not me,"
I cried. "What can I do?"
"No; you listen, you judge. It may

you may think that I have suffered

She fell over on her knees again, rock
ing backwards and forwards.
"Ah, why," she cried "why is the
world so unfair? why, when there is

It is cruel and unjust.

"When I was eighteen I went to live
with a very wealthy family in London,
the name I will not hide one detail
from you the name was Cleveland;
they had one littW girl, and I was Iter
governess. I went with them to their
place in the country, and there avisitor
came to them? a handsome young no
bleman, Lord Daeius by name.
"It was a beautiful sunlit coiihty. I
bad little to do, plenty of leisure, and
he could do as he would with his time.
We had met and had fallen in love with
each .ilier. I did not love him, I idol
ized him; remember in your judgment
that no one had ever loved me. N o one
had ever kissed my face and said kind
words to me; and I, oh! wretched, mis
erable me, I was in heaven. To be
loved for the first time, and by one so
handsome, so charming, so fascinating!
A few weeks passed like a dream. I
met him in the earlv morning, I met
him in the gloaming. He swore a huii
dred times a day that he would marry
me when he came of age. We must
wait until then. I never dreamed of
harm or wrong, I believed in him im
plicitly as I loved him. I believed
every word that camo from his lips.
May Heaven spare me! I need tell you
no more. A girl of eighteen madly,
passionately in love; a girl as ignorant
as any girl oould be, and a handsome,
experienced man of the world.
"There was no hope, no chance. ' I
fell; yet almost without knowing how
I had fallen. You will spare me the
rest I know.
"When, in my sore anguish and dis
tress, I went to him. I thought lie
would marry me at once; I thought he
would be longing only to make mo hap
py again; to comfort me; to solace me;
to make amends for all I had suffered.
I went to him in London with my heart
full of longing and love. I had left my
situation, and my stern, cruel grand
mother believed that I had found an
other. If I lived to be a thousand years
old I should never forget my horror und
surprise. He had worshipped me; he
had sworn a thousand times over that
he would many me; he had loved mo
with the ttndercst hive.
"Now, when after waiting some
hours, I saw him at last, he frowned at
me; there was no kiss, no caress, no

said, 'llus comes from country vis

" 'I did. mv dear.' he said, 'but of

'No, certainly not; and you know

And what is it to nw.r I asked.
Oh, you must make the best of it.
Of course, I will not see you want, but
you must not annoy me. Ana mat old
grandmother of yours, she must not be

best you can. 1 will give you a hun

come near mo again.'
l spoke no word to him; l aid not
reproach him; I did not utter his name;
I did not say good-bye to him; 1 walked
away. 1 leave his punishment to
Heaven. Then I crushed the anguish
within me and tried to look my life in
tho face. I would have killed myself
rather than have gone home. My
grandmother had forced me to be sav
ing, and in the post-olhVe Imuk 1 had
nearly thirty pounds. I had a watch
and cliain worth ten. I sold them, and
I sold with them a small diamond ring
that had been my mother's, nnd some
other jewelry; altogether I realized
llfty pounds. I went to tho outskirts
of London and took two Bmall rooms.
"I remember that I made no effort to
hide my disgrace: 1 did not pretend to
1)0 married or to be a widow, and tho
mistress of the house was not unkind
to me. Shu liked trie all the better for

I must say this much for myself, that I
knew nothing whatever ot children,
that is. of such little children. I had
never been where there was a baby so
little as my own.
"I bought tho cordial, and just before
I started gave the baby some. I
thought that I was very careful; I
meant to be so. I . would not for the
whole world have given my baby one
half drop too much.
' "It soon slept a calm, placid sleep,
and I noticed that the little face grew
paler. 'Your baby is dying,' said a
woman, who was traveling in the third
class carriage with nie. 'It is dying, I
am sure.' 1 laughed and cried; 'it was
so utterly impossible 1 thought; it was
well and smiling only one hour ago. I
never remembered the cordial. After
wards, when I came to make inquiries.
I found I had given her too much. I
need not linger on details.
"You see that if my little one died by
my fault, it was most unconscious on
my part: it was most innocently, most
igniiiantly done. I make no excuse. I
tell you the plain truth as it stands. I
caused my baby's death, but it was
most innocently done; I would have
given mv own life to have brought hers
back. You, my judge, can you imag
ine any fate more terrible than standing
quite alone on the llrighton platform
with a de;td child in my arms?
"1 had very little money. I knew no
soul in the place. I had no more idea
what to do with a dead child than a
baby would have had. I call it dead,'
she continued, 'for I believe it to have
been dead,' no matter what anv doctor
says. It was cold, oh. my Heaven,
how cold! lifeless; no breath passed
the little lips! the eves were c'osed,
the pretty hands still'. hilin-nTit ilarf,
1 wandered down to the beach, and sat
down on tin stones.
"What was I to do with this sweet,
cold body? I cried until I was almost
blind: in the whole wide world there
was no one so utterly desolate and
wretched. I cried aloud to Heaven to
help me where should I bury my little
child? I cannot tell how the idea first
occurred to me, the waves came in with
a soft murmuring melody, a sweet sil
very bush, and I thought the deep,
green sea would make a grave for my
little one. It was mad and wicked I
know now; I can see how horrible it
was; it did not seem to be so then. I
only thought of the sea then as my best
friend, the place where I was to hide
the. beloved little body, the clear, green
grave win re she was to sleep until the
.liidgrncut Day. I waited until it is a
htunbie thing to tell you! but I fell
asleep fust asleep, and of all tho hor
rors in my story, the worst part is that,
sitting by the sea, fast asleep myself,
w ith tny little dead babe on my knee.
"When I woke the tide was coining
in full and soft, with swift-running
waves, the sun had set, and a thick,
soft gloom had fallen over everything,
and then I knew the time had come fur
what I wanted to do."
( IIA1T1.U XII. AND LAST.
"I went on the Chain l'ier. I had
kissed the little face for tho last time;
I had wrapped the pretty white body in
the blaik-and-grey shawl. I said all
the prayers I could remember as I
walked along the pier; it was the most
solemn of burial .services to me.

I need not tell von that afterwards I

with all my heart.

"What you have told me," I said,
"certainly gives a different aspect to
the whole affair. I will make no prom-ise-1

time to decide what is best."
"You will spare nie," she went on.
"You see I do no ono any harm, wrong,
or injury. If I hurt another, then you
might deprive me of my husband and
my home; as it is, Lance loves mo and
1 love him. You will not tell him?"
"I will think about it," I replied.
"liut I cannot live in such suspense,"
sho cried. "Jf you will tell him, tell
him this day, this hour."
"Ho might forgive you," I said.
"No, he would not be angry, he would
not reproach me, but ho would nover
look upon my face again."
"Would it not be bolter for you to
tell him yourself?'' I suggested.
"Oh, no," she cried, with u shudder.
"No, I shall never tell him."
"I do not say that I shall," I said.
"Ijiive me a few days only a few days
and I will decide in my mind all
Then we saw Lance in the distance.
"There is my husband," sho said.
("Do I look very ill, Mr. Ford?"
"You do, indeed; you look ghastly,"
"I will go and meet him," she said.
The exercise ami the fresh air
brought some color to her face before
they met. Still he cried out that I had
not taken cure of her; that she was
"That is it," she replied. "I have
been over-tired all day; I think my
head aches; I have had a strange sensa
tion or dizziness in it. I am tired, oh.
Lance, I am so tired!"
"I shall not leave you again," said
Lance to her, and I fancied he was not
unite pleased with me. and thought I
had neglected her. We all threo went
homo together. Mrs. 1'lcming did not
say much, but she kept up better than
I thought she could have done. I heard
her that sanm evening express a wish
to bo t riven to Valo Hoyal on the dav
following; a young girl whom she had
been instrumental in saving from ruin,
bad been taken suddenly ill und wanted
to see her.
"My darling," Lunco said, "you do
not seem to mo strong enough. Let me
persuade you to rest lo-inoriow."
"I should like to see iloso Winter
again before before I" then she
stopped abruptly, nnd her face grew

her husband, with a smile,
"I menu," sho said, ."that 1 should

I saw them start on the following
morning, and thou 1 tiled to think over
in solitude what it would be best to do.
Her story certainly altered facts very
considerably. Shu was not a murder
ess, as 1 had believed her to bo, If the
death of the little h!,.nless child was at
tributable loan over lu1 e of tho cordial,
she had certainly not mvcu it purpose
ly. I'ould I judge her?
Yet, an honest, loyal man like Lance
ought not to be so cruelly deceived. I
felt sure myself that if sho spoke to
him if she told hiiu bur story Villi the
same pathos with which she had told it
to me, he would. Arlvo' her he- must
forgive her. I could not reconcile it
w ith my conscience to keep- iluuce, I
could not. and I believed that the truth
might be told with Kiifety. So, after
long thinking and deliberation, 1 cam
to tho conclusion that Lance must
know, and that she must tell him her
self. It was in the middle of a bright sun
shiny afternoon when they returned.
When Lance brought his w ife into the
draw 'big-room lie seemed very anxious
"Frances does not seem well," he said
to me. "King the bell, John, and

"Is your head bad again to-day," I
"l'es, it aches very much," she re
plied. The hot tea came, and it seemed to
revive her: but after a few minuteH the
dreadful shivering came over her again.
She stood up.
"Lance.' she said, "I will go to my
room, and you must lead me, my head
aches so that I am blind."
She left her prcltv drawing-room
never to re-enter it. The next day at
noon Lance came to me with a sad
"John, my wife is verv ill, and I have
just heard bad news."
"What is it, Lance?" I asked
"Why, that the trirl she went yester
day to see, Hose Winter, is ill with the
most malignant type ot small pox.
1 looked at him in horror.
"Do you think," I gasped, "that the
that Mrs. Fleming has caught it?"
"1 am quite sure," he replied. "I
have just sent for the doctor, and have
telegraphed to the hospital for two
nurses. And my old friend," he added.
"I am afraid it is going to be a bad
It was a bad case. I never left him
while the suspense lasted; but it was
soon over. She su tiered intensely, for
the disease was of the most virulent
type. It was soon over. Janee came
to me one afternoon and I read the ver
dict in his face. '
"Sho will die," he said, hoarsely.
"They cannot save her." and the day
after that he came to mo again with
"John, ho said, slowly, "my wife
Frances is dying, and she wants to see
you. Will you see her?"
"Most certainly," I replied.

At noon yesterday thcro were half a

a pedestrian that they must havo work

"You look like, an honest man."
"Yes, sir, I do."
"And you are a hard worker."
"I am that."

Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the oldest city
in the United States, It has rescued the
end ofilstlrst third of a thousand yours
its tertio-uiillemal period. Iholcrtio-Alil-lennial
Celebration snd Mining and Indus
trial Exposition, which will be inaugurated
there on the 2d of July and close on the Ud
of August, will bean event of groat histo
rical as well as prncticM importance to the
country at ltrgo. It is intended to com
memorate the three hundred and thirty
third anniversary of the Spanish settlement
of the place.
Which will constitute the practical part of
the. celebration, will bo an epitome of the
mineral, ngricultural, horticultural, stock
and general industrial resources and ciips
bilities of the Territory. Those, therefore,
who nro interested in cither mining, ngrl
culture orstock-raiHliig will have a good op
portunity to visit New Mexico this hciihoii,
ns the low lure will lie a great inducement
to iniike the trip. Tho development of the
mines of this vast region has but begun,
yet in the past year the proportionate in
crease in the output of ore was greater than
in any other State oi Territory. New.Mox
ico's showing at tho mining exposition held
at Denver last season showed, more clearly
than anything else, the vastnosa of its min
It has been tho general belief heretofore
that agriculturo in New Mexico would not
pay. This is an unfortunate error. At tho
exposition will bo teen samples of all sorts
of fruits and field products which vie with
those of prolific Kansas. With irrigation
(uobou or uio 'territory can tie made to
yield immensely, mid there is no pursuit
more remunerative than that of faruiiDg.
Agricultural products, of all kinds, bring
u ign prices upon a reany rnaiKet, always
accessible in the crowiiiL' minim inwm
and the cost of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle and tlieep country, too,
New Mexico cannot be surpassed. Her
valleys and mesas' stl'ord fine orazinir
grounds for countless herds. A3 the cele-
nrannn hi snta re win ho the means of
drawing a larger number of people into the
Territorv than usual, owinir to th rhran
fare, an opportunity will be offered those
wno may oe interested in stock-raising
Resides the practical, the Teitlo-Milleuial
will embrace many features the must novtd
and romantic. For instance, three days
the 18th, 19th, and 20ih of July wilt be
devoted to the presentation of historic
scenes. These will represent tbe period
which has transpired sinco the lettlcini.nt
of the city, each day to represent a century
01 History ami progress, iiic three civili
zations will also be represented that
which existed at tho time of the coming of
tho conqueror-, that which tie Spaniards
brought with them and that which followed
theAmericanoccupatii.il of 1 Mil. These
representations will be illustrmwifby cnval
cades in costume, indicative of the several
distinctive itpuJiliniig into New Mexico
and the surrounding ternary- Ttieio will
also be numerous tableaux, the whole com
bining to make one of the most bovcI snd
interesting exhibitions ever , wiioomed in
this country. There will, in addition, be
various Indian garnet-, rates sud dances by
the Pueblos, nVttcendsnls of the ancient in
habitants of the Territory; aiiibutnadis and
sham lights by the Zunis, wiih exhibitions
of their peculiar ritt s und ccr monies, one
ot which will be a primitive danre repre

lore mythology; native Mexican games,
dances und juggling; original Aztrc dances,
in which both Mexicans and Indians will
