has been, lis any one niiu'lit expect from lier

Uiliue school, as 1 was, and site came to be

In Ln-nlon with Inn: tut I Wt think fsho
would somehow, for he trok to drink and
died of tho honors, mid Cherry would not
liave brim much tho better of the match.
Her mime was Charity, b. t they always
called her Cherry abiut tho house, and 1
called her so, too, t.f course.
When wo prew old, C u rry and I, tho
Jiia'-li r )iitt us into the north loiL'e, and pavo
us the poultry yard as well, and my wifo
mai-.es a capital Innwile, nml sends inoro
fowls t,n 1 cpi's up to the house than anyone
they have ever bad, tho housekeeper says.
Jiut ni tit's l-ti't what 1 mil cotulinr to; It is
only j:e t to show who we iird and where wo
live. Ii isn't about mvself nor Cnerry that
J am polnp to tell, except inasmuch as It
concerns us party; it is about our boy, our
li ph, tliat we loved so dearly.
K.ilph was notour own liny; we never
reared a chi d ; we had t :re ', and they all
went away to the (lood Shepherd before we
had had limo to realize ourpreat joy in pos
pi'ssii p tliem. I suppose it was not uood
lor us to bu too hajipy. We had everythirp
that be u t con d wish for except that, and
tnavbe it Isn't ri'i-ht forp 'opie to hiiveevcry
thinp in thi- world at once,
Hut it was a dreadful prlef when they
Ciiui" and went like that, and after the lust
two win laid In tho Brave, Cherry almost
"My heart will break, Dick," she said, "it
Is empty-so empty."
And so was mine, Imt men don't say as
much almut such thius as women do; they
don't seem to prieve sn much, but they pet
Hiort-t' inpefi d and downhearted; it must
come out somehow, jou know. .So w hen
the last of our little ones bad been laid in
the crave, It si e, iied as if Cherry would bo

sloryof how some poorc enure bad died In
the workhouse ami left her little h.iby to ho
brought up by the parish, or to die If It
couldn't stand the tr -utiit 'tit ; and it's rather
roiiL'h on louder Imbics; nothing would do
bin Cherry must po and b'p that child for
hei i w'ii nml brinp It up as If it had been
the very ono we had lust.
The parish made as much fuss about plv
In.' it up to ns im if It was worth a thou
niiid-n-year to tie in, and tney went to the
muster almut it, and he miked to me,
' (' Hi you i ll' ml In do this t lin .', tlraves'.'''

lienrtn ft llttlo, though I think Cherry cried
mora over It when It emtio than she had
done over the grave of tho last llttlo darling
we were ever to see of uur very own. It
opened up tho soil', yon see, and inndo It
bleed nlie -h.
We never had a mlnuto's trouble with
Un!ph; ho was as pood a boy ns ev. rhreath.
ed, I don't mean to say that lie luid rt hlg
teini ins; 1 wouldn't h ive a boy without
tin in; he'd have no spir t; but ho was a
y uhl boy. We could trust iilin, and we did.
Well, ho prew up, and when ho was big
etui iph, he went Into the siptiro's service
t.io, liinl sear. up, ami weedlnp, and all sorts
f odd tbinps al til -t. anil then into a reiru
lur place about the preserves, till, when bo
was eighteen, bo was umlir-ket per, and as
fine a young follow ns ever lset eyes on.
Tho squire liked b in very much, nud put
him fni ward nil he could, and he had money
in the bank, and all seemed to be polng well
with him, when evil days c.tino upon him,
and he fell In love.
I don't mean to say that falling in lovo Is
evil; Heaven knows there never was a bet
ter thinp f'T mo than my marriage; but It Is
when a hid falls in love with the wrong wo
man that mischief comes of it; and that's
just what my poor buy did. 1 never saw
her; she lived miles away on the other side
of the county, and he had seen her when he
went with the Mpiit'e and stayed two days
once at a place w here somo of our pheas
ants were taken for the breed.
And llalph went there about It, and from
thaih 'itrhe wa a changed lad. He was
nbs 'id and broody, and the old lUlit had
gone out of Ids eyes, and the smile, that was
so fresh and pleasant, from his dear face,
and we guessed what had come to him, and
h s mother we were always father and
mother to him, for he knew no other taxed
him with It.
' It's a woman tha'.'s wrong with you,
K Vph, m lad,'' Cherry snid, when he could
not eat his supper, and sat with his head on
bis hand stamp at nothing. "You've been
falling in love, and It don't asreewith you."
"Don't laugh at me, mother," he said;
"don't chaff me; I can't stand it."
"I won't," Cherry said. "Tell me all
about it, my boy? Who Is It?"
1 don't think we ever made out rL'htly
who she was. She was in sei v'co at a farm
er's over whi r ' Ralph had b en, and she
was as b 'auf ,ful as the daj light. I didn't
take much account of that, b c;iuse if a wo
man is as ugly as Bee.zebub, and as wicked
as the father of lies himself, the man who
Is unfortunate enough to fall in love with
her, will think her an angel, In spite of all.
This girl was ns good as she was beautiful,
U.ilpli declared, and, like himself, she was j
an orp an.
1 asked llalph did the pir! low him, but
he shook bis head; bo was not sure, ho
didn't know; he l:op il so; but ho had said !
very II tie as yi t, and there was someone
else, someone with a longer purse than ho
had, nnd mme winning ways maybe,thouph
I don't see how that Could be very well, and
altogether be was far more unhappy than
happy In his new excit nient.
It went on for some time, and at last
things grew se:tied, and Harry came home
ono day, after he had bad a two days' holi
day, ipi te ra . hint and satisfied. Harriet
thai w as her name-did lovo him, sh bad
adini.ted that iiim h, and tiio rest would
coin.-all rigid iu t;iiie;-slie would be his
w.f , and be was the happiest fellow In tie
three kinmbuns. 1 don't know why I f -It a
nii-p ving nnout It, but I did ; (pieer tbiiurs
ei iu into one's head sometimes, and 1 bad
a tecin it'uat U i.pii's love would bring him
I would not say much to him till I had
seen the p'rl and judged for myse f what
she was like. I calle red that she was lath
er flighty nml fond of dress, from oneor two
things that Jlalph had said, and a present
or two that he had given her, which seemed
litter for a young lady than a poor s-rvaut
plrl; but ll.ilpli said she was like a lady In
her pretty ways, audi felt ttoub ed as I
heard it. I akeil biui about the other man
that had b. en bangii.g about the girl, nnd
be laughed and said that that was all over,
thai llanie! had told him she wanted noth
ing more to do with him, and lie bad had
the pood sense to give her up.
I daresay a pood many people would have
gone to where the girl lived, and found out
for themselves what they wanted to know,
but Cherry nnd I are old-fashioned folks,
rather slow-mlmled, p rhaps, and it never
occurred to us. We knew that Jialph woti d
bring her to see us soon, and one Saturday
be said ho was poll g off to see her and, if
(he could iret away, bo would bring her back
with him the next day. She couldn't, for
he caino back without her and rather down
hearted we f incied; but she was to come
the next week; her ml-tress had given b r
leave nud had been very Kind to Itiiplj, and
entertained him ipiite ho jtabiy,
Tncro bad been something a llttlo un
pleasant between him and Harriet which
iieeounteil for Ills low spirits. The other
man had been hanging about her again, and
she had treated it lightly and as if it were a
good Joke, Instead of life and death to the
lad w ho loved her so well.
"She's n heartless hussy, if she's playing
fast and loose with niv hoy," Cnerry said,
when ho bad told us about it, "I shan't like
her, It i iph, 1 am sure of It,"
"Oh, yes. you will, mother dear," he said.
"No one can help loving my Harriet, she's
prettier than any woman you ever saw,
mother; she's like nn impel,"
"Handsome l.s that handsome does,"
Cnerry said, nud -he was righi; (md looks
ureii't evervthii g. and K lph would have
tound li so if-iiiit I in getting on too last,
tln re's ii deal to be told yet about Harriet
13 It. She didn't come on Sundav, and
Kalphwnslnn dreadful way. Something
had lnipp 'iied to her. ho was sure, and noili.
Ingw' ttd do but that he must go off tho
wry In -t tlnng on Monday morning to In
quire. The -quire was very kind and let
b in po; be was in love h uisclf once upon a
time, and said, and under tood lmw It was
tv, tb Ka ph.
"lie won't do any wi rk," he said to mo.
nid laughed; "J don't wauteverythlnp turn
ed upside down bncauso hishend is som
where clso. He'll do nil tho better when bo
II it ho didn't, poor fellow; things wero
ten times worse. He brought back terrible
news. Harriet was missing; nothing hud
been seen of In r f"r three days, and tho Im
pression was that sho h id run off with
liaipli. Her mistress said that they bad
been there in tho gloaming tho very day
t i iiit they Just her, n id that ihey had
been met together a couple of mlies or so on
tiio Mud towards Squire Monkslioime's
p'aee, J.'alph told lier he bad not been any
where near the piano on that evening, but
ho said she did not seem to believe him, and
they caino to quite angry words about It be
fore ho eaine home. Sbo declared that sho
tild not want lo see Harriet again she was
n i ungrateful hussy, and deserved anything
tint might happen to her, It was very odd,
nnd In the midst of my wonderment I sud
denly icmeiiibered that Ilalph had been
nwav fmni homo nil that venln r nnd far
into he iil.dit, nnd had comeback moody
mi ; quiet, and had mild notlilngof where ho
"Von were out, laddie," I said, "on that
"I wasn't there, lather," he replied, "nor
anywhere near It."
"Where wero you?"
I don't know what made mo ask him the
question; I had a queer sense that nil wns
not right somehow, nnd he didn't scent to
relish it at nil.
"J wns making a fool of myself," he said,
shortly. "I'm thankful I (iidu't find th
person I wanted to see; there'll have been
"Just that, father. I wns looking for Jem
Ilaekitt you don't know hint, but that's tho
fellow that has so nearly taken my girl from
me, 1 tti ink I have got over it now, but I
should like to have taken him by the throat
nnd shaken him the other night, when I
thought of what Harriet told mo on Sun
day." "Then ho wasn't nt home?"
"And you didn't see him'."'
'Tin clad of It," I said. "It's always a
bad thing when there Is ill blood between
two young fe fbws; as you say, Kalph, it
leads to murder sometimes. Don't po after
him ngain, my lad be satisfied that you
have the bc-t of it; if it is the bpst ," I add
ed to myself, for I had my doubts of it, and
should have been just ns well pleased If

PANGS OF STARVATION'.
Horrible KufTerlugtt Cmised by a Lack ol
l'ood unit Water.
"When I look buck to my own brief
experience and think of the poor fol
lows of t lie (Iroely expedition, nnd the
lon; and weary months tliev guttered
in the Arctio region, 1 think tiio mantle
of charity and forgetfulness should be
throvvn over tlieir action," said (it'orpo
W. llower, an ex-coxswain of tho navy,
who had been attached to the ill-fated
schooner Tallapoosa. Continuing, lie
said: "I was coxswain of one of tho
boats of tho Tallapoosa when sho was
nttached to the gulf squadron. One
eveninr when returninr from a boat
expedition we were caught in a terrific
squall and our boat was capsized near
a small island. My crew managed to
roach the shore, but our boat drifted
away in the darkness. We lay tlown
'n the bushes and slept that night, and
when morning broke we realized that
we were on a desolate island. We ex
plored the island and found on it only
underbrush and trees, nothing in tho
shape of food or water. Wo had only
to hope that we would soon bo rescued.
The gale continued with violence, and
we spent another night in our bed of
"On the following morning we began
to feel the pangs of hunger and thirst,
nnd finding an old barrel on tho beach
we broke it up and used the staves to
dig for water.which we found so brack
ish that we could not drink it. Then
we set up a pole on a dill', with a shirt
of one of the men fa-toned to it as a
signal of distress. Our siill'erings from
thir.-t were indescribable. Wo passed
the third night and day on the island
without any change, except in one inci
dent. With a companion I started on
a tour around the island, it being our
practice to take turns to search for a
passing vessel that we might signal,
tinil going through a clump of woods
saw a cormorant, a bird of carrion con
sidered unlit to cat. I killed it with a
club and we ravenou.-lv lore it in pieces
and sucked its blood, w hich, iu our
condition, was refreshing. Hut we did
not mention the fact to our comrades
upon our return to c;nnp. Tin- morn
ing of the fourth day broke withfxres
sive hca , and one oi our party was so
delirious that it required two "of us to
subdue him. Our tongues hud so swol
len that we could scarcely speak abovo
a whisper. Our lips were nlsocrackcd
and split with the intense lic it.
"In tho afternoon one of the men
who had been on his tour was observed
running toward the camp, and we
could just distinguish as he cam- near
er that he was crying 'a boat.' Those
who were able started toward the end
of the island, where our distress signal
was Hying, and wo distinguished a boat
approaching us from the distance. As
it, approached the shore v.- recognized
it as the launch of the Talhipoosa. As
the ollicer came on shore we begged
him to give us water, lb- u'.ivo us a
couple of swallows each, which made
lis crave for more, but il was denied to
us, Then a lire was in, nle on the
beach, nnd in u few moments a pot of
hot coll'ee was ready. 01 this wo re
ceived only u few swallows each, and
then wo were given a low pieces of pi
lot bread soaked in the coffee. Then
we were assisted into the boat and ta
ken to the shit), which wo reached late
at night. A few daws of careful feed
ing and tender nursing restored us to
our former strength. I have often
thought how thankful I was to God for
that rescue. IVi'sons who have never
had like experience can form no idea
of the terrible siill'erings of men in
that condition; and those persons who
so harshly criticise the survivors of tho
(Jroely expedition, if placed among
similar .surroundings, would no doubt
adopt tho same course." -.Viw York
The Transmutation of Metals,
Tho Arabians no doubt derive tlieir
ideas of tho transmutation of metals in
to gold and tho belief in immunity from
death by tho uso of tho philosopher's
Mono from China. Among all t lie met
als with which the alchemist worked,
mercury was pro-eminent, and this is
s n ted to bo tho philosopher's stone, of
which Cobor, Kalid ami others spoko
in the times of tho early caliphs. In
China it was employed extensively its a
medicine. On nights when dew was
falling, sullicicnt was collected to
mix with tin- powder of cinnabar, nnd
this was taken until it led lo a serious
disturbance of tho bodily functions. In
the ninth century an einperor, and in
the tenth century tl piinio mlnlslerdled
from tho I'll'ects of nu overdose of mer
cury. Chini-o medical books say it
takes L'ot) years to produce eiiiiiatmr;
In i 1100 years it becomes loud; in 5i00
years more H becomes silver, and then
by obtaining a tra isforining substance
called "vapor of harnionv," It, becomes
gold. This doctrine of the transforma
tion of mercury Into other inclals is
",W years old in China.
