It had been reining: unceasingly for
three davsrthe roads were wet and
muddyVitiost' unootnfortabla' for1 the
poople io traverse1; boy were busy af
each crossing; "plying tnfr brooms
oroustyj abovd tti dripping! the rain,
the ahouta'of the people, and rolling of
vehicle 11 atPosa the road, came the
sound of a sweet child's voice, singing
a moorpfu,! sctag with iarneit'athos.',
The child.' a little girl, was standing
in the corner, out of the war of the
busy wayfarers, and. by her sia ' stood
s rough cross-looking woman.
The fittle iace.'in spite of its extreme
pallor, waS Very beautiful; masses of
golden-brown hair fell in wild, profu
sion over hur shoulders; her eyes were
large ' and dark, and needed 'but a
glance intq their sad depths to tell that
for her all was darkness she was
blind. ' ' ' '
One or two people, moved to com
pa&ion by, the child's appearance and
the sweet face, gave the woman some
money, which she eagerly clutched,
then, thinkng she was unobserved, she
grasped the, child by the shoulder, and
said harshly: 1 '
"Come on! We must go somewhere
else, there is not much to be got here.
''AgainP Ar'n't you going home? I
am so tired,1 the child answered, lift
ing a pale'weary face to the woman.; J
"Whatt You don't suppose I am go
ing home yet, we have hardly . any
money, the people are so sparing to
day.' Ton most come," and half drag
ging Elsie, she moved away. " j
Bat she did not see a tall dark form
follow her, a man With kindpltyin j
eyes and puzzled face.! And when she
stopped in another street he .stopped
also, keeping out of sight; '
'Now, Elsie, make nasi.'' :
And Elsie began "her song afresh,
with a slight trembling in the1 sweet
voice which was not unpercelved by her
listener; and as she came to the end of
the verse, she broke down altogether,
tears filling-the sightless eyes,3
'I cannot." I am too tired,"" she

The child shrank back With low

felt a firm gentle hand placed on her
shoulder, and a man's deep kind voice,
fluid. " ' f " .
"Do not strike the poor child. -She-seems
weary. Is she your little girl?"
The woman hesitated, then said:
"Yes. And indeed it is very hard to
be burdened with her, blind as she is.

"This is not the first time I have seen
you; And I noticed that the child was
blind. ' Has she been so long?"
Susan Wilson started, and her eyes
fell before the keen grey ones fixed up
"Not very long about three years, "
"Ah, then perhaps your little girl
might yet regain her sight?"
Gazing i&Uptly at' the lovely dark
eyes, he did not see the quick change
in the woman's face; a look of startled
fury overspread it. Winded with ter
ror; yet she forced herself to say joy
"Oh, sir, you have indeed made ma
happy. To think of my darling Elsie
recovering her sight! .What pleasure
for a mother to know that her child
will once more see her face!"
"Yes; I am certain of it I am an
oculist, and the first time I saw your
little girl, I felt convinced her case was
not hopeloss. You will bring her' to
me to-morrow, and I will see what tcan
be done for her."
"Yes. sir." ;
"Here, he added, giving her a card,
"is my address."
Good-bye, Elsie;" and Dr. Lester
slipped a small coin into the tiny cold
Aa the doctor turned away, Susan
f rasped the child's arm and hissed in
"I suppose you think I am going to
take you to that doctor's, don't yen?
"Why, yes; you said so," Elsie said,
a faint misgiving rising in her heart
"Yes, of course you do. And I
should like to know what you think I
am going to do if your sight is restored,
to have you again a useless burden. A
nice tbig for me, truly. I will take

Elsie soon regained' her sight, and

she .continued with tbem, nor was Mrs.

agaip, for one day recognizing Elsie in

promisod for a good reward to reveal
the secret of lie. child's parentage,
i "I stole her for the clothea she wore,
and a gold chain round her throat It
was through the effects of a fever that
she lost her sight" .
I "And do you know who were her pa

"No; but I kept the photographs that
were in the locket, m case I should
wanf them one day.' There they are,"
and Susan handed the doctor, a small
piece of pape,r,; in which were enclosed
two tiny photographs, one a man, the
other a lady.
I "I knew it," he murmured "She is
Bert's little' girl. ' How strange that
after1 all tlieseears I should find her!"
I And so Elsie, blind no longer, was
made happy by the knowledge that Su

BULLETIN;, -WEDNESDAY MORNING FEBRUARY 13, 1884.
The Sword flHli-Ai Ocean l'uuutlo.
In the mysferiesof nature the sea has
a conspicuous share, aud the study of
ocean life is full of fascination, full of
curious discoveries, and not lacking in
facts which , are entirely outside tho
range of explanation. This perhaps,
is to be expected, considering that tho
ocean Is the exact reverse of,- the land.
On land nearly all of life Is upon tho
surface, readily - visible . and always
open to studv. On tho contrary, near
ly all of ocean 4 life is low and out of
sight, and even those who spend their
lives upon its storm swept surface can
have but a guess work knowledge of
what is going on below them.
But all the study of the ,6oa ways is
not mere speculation or usoless gather
ing of scattered facts. It comes . to
something. . In the study of the ways
of fish and the art of breeding fish from
the spawn science has furnished a
practical aid to mankind which is only
beginning now to be appreciated. We
aro learning to repair damages of even
the most wasteful and ignorant de
structiveness, which would otherwise
soon deprive us of some of our most de
sired foods. i
The first aim of the students is, of
course, to learn the habits, of . any par
ticular fish, and some of these are very
peculiar. For example take the sword
fish. It has lately been made the sub
ject of very careful study, and a good
deal of positive fact has been learnod
about it. As to its origin, the only
really young swordfish ever seen are
found in the Mediterranean. The only
large swordtish ever found spawning, or
containing eggs, are found in the Med
iterranean.. , 1 here is evidently their
home and nursery.. But every year,
about the first of July, the swordtish
appears on the American coast, being
first seen about twenty-five miles Boutn
of Montauk point He makes his wav
in shore and stays along the coast until
fall. He lives upon menhaden, niack
eral, ' blnefish, and other similar fish,
but how he learns in the Mediterranean
that he can find such food over hero,
and how he learns the way here, and
what transatlantic route he takes, are
utterly unknown. . He sticks by a wa
ter, temperature ,of aO degrees. ,, When
the water is colder than that he goes
away, nor does he come until it rises to
that And yet fishermen catch the
swordfish, by no means infrequently,
on their halibut trawls, which are down
a hundred fathoms or more where the
temperature is not above 40 degrees.
Here is another puzzle, how a fish that
leaves when the water gets. below 50
degrees is taught in a temperature be
low 40 degrees. But there is another
curious fact to be mentioned: the
swordfish appear on our coast about
the first of July and stay until fall
Now that is exactly the spawning time
of the swordfish in the Mediterranean,
which is the only place where such fish
are known, to spawn. Tho whole in
crease of the breed must , be made up
without the assistance of those that
come over here, or else the same indi
vidual fish may not breed every, year.
Perhaps, unlike Connecticut, they have
a constitution which requires only a bi
ennial session for business, and those
that have the year off come over to our
American watering places.
Old fishermen say the supply shows
no signs ol increase or decrease, in
any still morning aoout eleven, or ai
ternoon about lour, the swordtish in
the season can surely . be found,
vins at the surface . of the ocean
with iu back fin above .the water line..
Tho fish .move in , what ia called a
school, but they keep apart and have
to be harpooned singly. Such a meth
od of capture prevents wholesale, work
and probably the supply will always
continue, especially as the demand for
the meat is not very great, though
some people thinfc it superior to the
halibut, oeing nrmer ana not so nsny.
The swordfish, has been caught weigh
ing as much, ad 790 pounds, but the av
erage 240 to 500. The United States
Fish Commissioner s report, which con:
tains much interesting information
About this and .other fish, has an esti
mate that the annual catch along our
rew England coast is about 2,000 fish of
about L 000,000 pounds altogether. At
wholesale they bring at first hands
about three cents a pound.
They are fierce fighters and hunerv
eaters and it is believed some of their'
attacks on ships are made out of simple
ferocity a natural untasronism to ev
erything. Many vessels have been
crippled and more than one sunk by
being pierced with their swords.
