staying at Orwell ilouie ran after her, and

were desperately Jealoui of her.

could come fur as short or as long a time
as they chose, and could go away at a mo.

lemluine jealousy were matters which did
not concern the two emineutly respectiu

1'hey listened to May Ualston' rattle,
they also listeued to many spiteful things
said about her, and in each case they
smiled and prudeutly fore bore to utter a
word that could give offence to any one.
bo Madcap May, as she was ofteu called,
pursued the uneven tenor of her way,
equally untouched, by the adulation or
the euvy so freely awarded her.
It is a most singular proceeding for S

Indeed, does Miss Kulston go 'career

mild looking lady who had arrived in Do,
vereourt the previous day.
"Yes, at least I don't know what else
you can call it," was the somewhat con.
fused reply. "There Is some story told
about her father having left her here, and
about m married cousin coming to chape

my time, or cousin either, and I and my
girls wilt have been here three weeks to

Mrs. l'rudholiu shrugged her shoulders
expressively as she said.

i not the correct thing for an unmarried
girl to go out in a boat with Captain Fer

brother to take care of lur, and without
asking any other lady to join the party."
"There you are iu error, Mrs. l'rud
holm, for she ur.-d me to go with her; but
lam afraid of the water," t.tid Mr. Drake.
Hut as you would not go, she could have
luviled soinelxid) else. 1 would have al
lowed either of uiy daughters to have gone,
out of sheer kindness to a poor motherless
girl, or 1 would have even joined the par

Why didn't you volunteer to do so?"
aked the new-comer, with slightly elevat
ed eyebrow; "surely the offer should have
come from you."
"'u, it should not," replied Mrs. Prud.
holm, with great dignity; only last week

ol my judgment, and my daughters and t
were neglected most sluiiu-fully. What

keil Mrs. Liae, sweetly.
No; but my tiiis'iaml does," was the
spitciul reply; "he even carries his admi
ration so far as to order me to beciwlto
her, and though I do all in tuy power to
keep him and the children from following
her about, I don't in lue least succeed."
There csii'J be lunch harm in the girl,

Tliorrold's duhious reply.
1 ue cineration was here interrupted

Sue came into the room with her
face limned, her ryes bright, her wavy,
fliittt brow n hair baniiiiiK in pretty disor-
di r uhout her pleasant sweet ovul face;
and she swung her wide blue-lined lint In
her hand, as sue looked laughingly nt three
childieu who lollowed at her heels, and
then addressing herself to Mrs'. Tuurrold,
said V i ." : . '

And I want to go too," clamored both

May to the noisy brood ( then, glancing at.

Certainly not, Miss Kalston;' I should

Tliorrold's face became white with rage
as she uttered this outrageous Imperii

May Ralston, lor a moment stood petri
fied with astonishment.
The accusation was so cruelly unjust;
the outburst of petty spile so utterly tin
Sue had played with the spoilt children,
but it had been to please them, uol for
her own amusement; and as for their fa

times iu her life.
Staring at Mrs. Thorrold with a bewil
dered gaze, she next turned her eyes up.
on Mrs. Prudholm, to see II she concurred
la condemning her.
But that worthy matron, though she had
her own little spites and Jealousies, could
not sit tamely by and see a motherless girl
gratuitously insulted in that way, and
feeling for once an Impulse of honest in.
dignatlon, she rose to ber feet and said
"For shame, Mrs. , Thorrold, you have
forgotten yourself, and your remark is most
unladylike." - -
"And most unwarranted," added Mrs.
Drake, likewise rising; "and I shall in
form Mis Budd that 1 must take my cous
in away from her house, If she is to re
ceive such treatment from any of Its In.
And, so laying, she linked her arm in
that of poor Madcap May, and led her from
the room, followed by all the other ladies
except Mrs. Thorrold, who was left with
her three children screaming In concert

Their mother tried to quiet thetn, but
In vain; and, sometime afterwards, her
husband came Into the room, pale with

Then he turned on his heel and the mis
erable woman was left alone.
It was in vain that she ran after him,
and wept and entreated, add offered to
apologize, and vowed she would never lose
her temper in a like manner again.

May Ualston and Miss Uudd would both
have forgiven her, he was determined not
to run the risk of another scene of the
So the Tliorrold's went Into lodgings for
the rest of their stay; and though the
children always ran alter May whenever
they saw her, she made a point of dis
couraging such expressions of atleciion.
This little contretemps had the eflect,
however, of making May Ualston very pop
ular In Orwell House.
Mrs. Prudholm discovered that she was
a very charming girl, and if she did take
part in a few mad pranks, still she was so
young, and so artless, and so unaffectedly
good uatured, that it' was well enough to
smile at and look over tbem.
Mrs. Drake's preseuce and suddenly
avowed relationship was also a protection
to May, and as Captain t erris and Mr.
Smytiie found their attentions were ac
cepted with equal impartiality and good
natured indifference, they were piqued oc
casionally into devoting themselves to
more appreciative members of the assem.
blage of visitors at Dovercourt.
o the days went on. Happy, pleas
ant, sleepy days, what with bathing in
the morning when the tide was in, stroll-
ng on the sands, or on the parade, or
lounging In the Spa subscription rooms,
the tune slipped away almost impercep
tibly. Excursions were organized to all the
places of interest in the neighborhood, and
very much May enjoyed them; but her
chief delight was to paddle about the
broad, culm harbor in ber canoe. Some,
times she led a little fleet of canoes, and at
other times she was quite alone, without
even her brother to accompany her.
Those who know Dovercourt will re.
member that it stands in the centre of an
extensive hay, bounded on the right by
Walton-on-the-Xaze, and by Languard
Point on the left.
lietween the latter and Dovercourt lie
the broad estuary of the Hivers Orwell
and Stour, and the harbor and town of
At a point about midway between Do
vercourt and Harwich there is a low head
land, from which there has been built out
into the sea a kind of breakwater or rather
groin for the protection of the Harbor of
Harwich. Standing at the end ot this
groin, one may have the water at one's left
hand as calm as a mill-pond, while there
w ill be a perfect little tempest raging at
one's right, with only some five or six feet
of solid stone between the two.
From seaward comes the monotonous
boom! boom! boom! of the bell-buoy on
the bar at the entrance of the harbor, and
its ominous clang reminds one incessantly
that, however placid und safe it may be in
the harbor, there is slorm and danger
Sometimes this groin is under water,
nd Inaccessible; but generally it is possi.
ble to get out to the end of it, where strong
seats have been lixod for the benefit of
those who appreciate the luxury of having
water on three sides of them, without the
least risk of having their retreat cut off.
The Current are dangerously strong off
the point of the breakwater, and it is per.
Ilous for any small craft or canoe to tempt
to round it without going some distance
out to sea, though the most fragile craft
ever floated could lie close to the sloping
stonework on the harbor or Harwich side
without the leat danger.
It was a hot, hazy afternoon. The Spa
was tilled with brightly dressed people,
who Seemed to have deserted the parade
and the sands for such shade as they could
A band is playing in the grounds, and
Madcap May silling comfortably in her
canoe, with her puddle at rest, listens
dreamily to the witching strains, and
thinks how much sweeter the music sounds
here on the water than it dos close to the
Her canoe is lying almost opposite the
Spa, and not a huimred yards from the
breakwater, and she is enjoying the pleas
ant sensation derived from t lie Might rock
ing of the canoe?, and the notes ot the dis
tant music, when a s.irill piercing shriek
echoes through tin- air and makes every
listener start witli sudden alarm.
May looks about her anxiously to see
from whence tlie'cry of terror, comes.
Then she sees upon the end of tbe break,
wuter a woman frantically waving her
arms, and .screaming, ' while two territied
children cling to her ski it, i
Their faces are turned ill the direction
of Languard Fort j aud they are evidently
trying to calT uttontion to some person or
thing that had fallen into the water.
Some of the people ol the Spa grounds
hear the cries of distress,, lor w hat w ind
there is, i iu that direction, and madly run
along the sca-wull towards the breakwa
ter, hut It will take the quickest runner a
full ten minutes to reach It, and traverse
its entire length; and, even when there,
what help can any one giver It would be
madness for the strougest swimmer to
throw himself Into the seething, w hirling
water at this point.' jUna.jnoincnt's pause
and then MaviinKerstiuiglit for the spot.
- She knows her danger well, and in the
brier moments that elapse between the
alarm and her reaching the scene of peril,
she thinks of what ahe has to lose, and of
who will be left behind if she perish.
There is her father. He w ill mourn for
her, but her brother Frank will comfort
him and there is another; but she knows
in her heart that either of them would
risk his life just as she is about to risk
hers, so she dismissed from her mind all
thought of hesitation. ,
A few vigorous strokes, and she is with,
in speaking distance of the people on the
breakwater, and she calls out
What is the matter? Tell mcl"
"Freddy 1 Freddy has fallen into the
water l My child I My child !"
And Mrs. Thorrold, for it was she, held
up ber arms, shrieking like a mad wo.
May's face was very pale; a clear stead,
fast look came into her eyes; Utile Fred,
dy was drowning, and she must save him
or lose her own life in the effort.
A few seconds later, and she is on the
spot; at the mercy of the swirling cur.
rent, it would seem, but as she is swept
past the place where the child Was last
seeu, he rises again to the surface, aud she
reaches over and clutches him.-
"Well done I Well done 1". is shouted
by the lookers on ; but their exultation is
premature, the girl has grasped the child
firmly, hut what she feared, what she has
prepared lor has happened, she has over,
balanced the canoe, aud she and little
Freddy are both in the water.
She had just presence of mind enough
to throw herself out when she found she
must go, and grasp the canoe with ber left
hand in the hope that the tiny craft would
bear the strain long enough to allow time
for help to reach her, and here she floats,
holding Freddy iu one hand end clinging
to the canoe with the other, while the bell
from the floating buoy booms solemnly as
if ringing her knell.
"Hold on, hold on 1" Is shouted wildly
by the spectators ou the breakwater, while
people in boats from the Harwich side are
pulling lustily towards the scene of the
accident, though they only have ft very
hazy Idea of what has happened.
Counting by minutes, and not one had
been lost In coming to May Kalston's aid,
the time had been very short Indeed, but
to her it seemed as though the agony of ft
lifetime could never be so lengthened out.
To keep the child's head above water
was not an easy matter without the use of
her other hand; and though she could
swim she dared not let go her bold of the
canoe, and she had not strength to turn it
over and lift little Freddy into it.
So here she hung at the mercy of the
current, which had already carried her
several yards beyond the end of the break,
water. It was upon the safety of the
child that her whole thoughts were cen
tred. Her arm was tired and numb, and seem,
ed as though it must fall powerless by her
fide ; but if Freddy's face were not kept
above the water, of what use would her
own peril have been?
Her very terror lest she should loosen
her hold on the child increases her exhaus.
tion, and her ideas become vague and con
fused. She is dimly conscious of a liabel
of voices and the rushing sound of the wa
ters; and then, with one convulsive sob,
she realizes that help is close by. and she
has just strength enough to murmur
"Take him!" Her eyes watch the child
grasped and lifted Into the boat, and she
knows no more.
She was nearly gone," is the verdict
passed upon her as tender bunds drag ber
tenderly into the boat. They carry her to
Orwell House, where everything that
skill and affection can suggest is doue for
She came back to life slowly and pain
fully, and the first thing she was positive,
ly conscious of, was a small curly-beaded
boy of five clambering over ber bed and
nestling in her arms, as he said
"I'm your little boy now, Miss May;
mamma says so, and she says, please will
you forgive her, for my sake?"
Two days later May's father returned,
he had heard of his daughter's noble act,
and was justly proud of her.
And he brought with hi in a young lieu
tenant in the navy, who bad evidently
known our heroine at some earlier period
of his life, and who, the tirst moment he
found her alone, clasped her in his arms,
exclaiming "Your father has consented,
This will, no doubt, account for the
very sudden departure of Captain Ferris
and Mr.Smytbe from Dovercourt, and also
for the wedding that took place at the old
church a few weeks later.
May Is as happy as any bride can be ; but
she will alwavs be Madcap May to those
who know ber.
