BUILDING ON THE SAND.
'Tie well to woo, 'tie well to wed,
For so the world hath done
Since myrtles grew, and roses blew,
And morning brought the sun.
But have a care, ye young and fair,
Be sure you pledge with-truth;
1']i certain that your love will wear
Beyond the days of youth!
For if we give not heart for heart,
As well as hand for hand,
You'lli find you've played the unwise part,
And built upon the sand.
'Tis well to save. 'Tin well to have
A goodly store of gold.
And hold enough of shining stuff,
For charity is cold.
lBut place not all your hope and tiust
In what the deep mine brings;
We cannot live on yellow dust,
Unmixed with purer things;
And he who piles up wealth alone,
Will often have to stand
Beside his coffer chest, and own
'Tis built upon the sand.
'Tis good to speak in kindly guise;
And soothe whero'er we can;
Fair speech should bind the human mind,
And love link man to man.
But stay not at the gentle words,
Lot the deed with language dwell;
T'he one who pities starving birds
Should scatter crumbs as well.
The mercy that a warm and true
Must lend a helping hand,
For those who talk, yet fail to do,
But build upon the sand.

ual serenity, yet her voice had a strange
softness and sweetness.
'I-we,' continued the Captaiu, 'are
in search of a strange boat which got
adrift from the yacht Mermaid last
night. We have been about here for
three hours. It must have got over the
bar and gone out to sea.'
Low, lifting himself to look over the
bank, saw how things were, and settled

'With a book and a spy-glass in it ?'
'Yes,' confessed Sommers, ashamed of
his seamanship. 'I let it got away from
me. I have charge of the yacht. There
she is yonder,' pointing to the offing.
'You will find your boat fastened to a

beautiful young creature all in white
and found Captain Sommers awaiting
her, cap in hand. They went together
down the overgrown paths, hle holiug
the rose-vines aside to lot her pass.
'I am giving you too much trouble,'
'No. There is my man. Stephen!'
The old man came up with his spade.
He began telling how he hadl found the
boat-for which the young man did not
care two straws, casting desperately
about in his mind to learn how he was
to meet Adelaide again.
She had already withdrawn to the
terrace, and stood awaiting his final

'A desperate venture!' he muttered,
'but my only chance!'
If, while unmooring the boat, he
deftly questioned the old servitor of
the Wosterleys, old Stephen never told.
But when he saw the two boats float

of silver in his hand, and muttered,
'Good luck to you, sir I'
The fair LAdy of Shalut went slowly
back to her bower. Perhaps the pretty
chamber did not then look quite beau
tiful. Perhaps she, too, murmured, 'I
am half sick of shadows.' It would not
be at all utrange.
This girl of 20 lived astrangely isolat
ed life. She was the last of her race'
living on the estate bequeathed to her in
infancy by her dying father. A half
sister of her mother's, an aged woman
called Aunt Resolve, was her only com
panion. She had never entered society.
She knew little of the world outside the
beautiful gardens and shores of the Ju
But for Aunt Resolve, the girl seemed
to be wasting her sweetness on the de
sert air. The devoted old woman idol
ized her. From her babyhood, she had
dressed, washed, and tended her. Per
haps it was a mistaken fondness that
relieved the heiress of all care of her
estate, for it required some manage
ment to make it yield an income for
the family, and Adelaide suffered from
ennui. Perhaps a little care would
have been good for her. But Aunt Re
solve thought differently, ansd the girl
knew nothing of the oyster-beds and
the crops that were here.
The girl stood in the rosepath again
the following evening, her garden hat
in her hand, her eyes uanoonsciously
fixed upon the yacht Mermaid in the
offing. she was in an unusually
thoughtful mood. There had come to
her for the first time the thought whi
ther her life was tending. To wear
away the seasons from youth to age in
uneventful monotony, her soul unsatis
flied, did not suit her. But a spell, a
fate seemed upon her. Probably it
would never be otherwise; and a sad
ness no words could express spread
through all her consciousness.
A stop upon the gravel. She turned
and encountered the gleam of two blue
eyes. Captain Sommers bowed low.
'Your pardon ; more missing property,
Miss Westerley,' he stammered.
'What is it now I' asked Adelaide, in
'A ring I dropped yesterday. Ah, here 4
it is,' stopping to hide a guilty blush,
and immediately, with strange good
fortune, discovering a diamond ring at
the edge of the grass plot.

They chatted among the rose-vines
for a long hour. The young man made
a practical use of his time. With undue
stress he told her who be was-the
younger of two orphan brothers left
early to find their fortunes. The elder
had esucceeded better than he; perhaps I
less ascrupulonus. It was Godfrey's yacht
Gordon commanded. He had no money, I
but he had not a vice, and the good
will of all men.
And when he had gone, she found
that he had left with her letters highly
complimentary, recommending him to
stations of trust, so that she was able to
afford astonished and alarmed Aunt
Resolve all the assurance she needed.
And now Adelaide was no longer
alone. She had a lover.
- Week after week the yacht Mermaid
remained in the offing. Day by day the
young people floated on the smooth sum
mer tide, or strolled in the garden, or
sang at the old piano songs ringing and
full of sweetness.
Perhaps no happier hearts existed aun
der the sun. Then Godfrey Somers sent
for his yacht, and Gordon must needs
obey and speed North.
'Oh, Gordon, you will forget me!' she
'Forget my little oriolet Never! Child,
you do not know hew I love yen. Wear
this ring for me, Adelaide.'
It was deep and yellow, and bore in
deeply engraved characters the word
'Always.' And so they parted for a few
weeks, betrothed lovers.
The summer waned, but Adolaide was I
so happy she did not mind when the rose a

Aunt Resolve, who watched her con. I
stantly nowadays, saw that she was
wrapped in a dream of bliss. Her na
ture of great sweetness was alive, and I
her lover and her love life was all to her.
And now, for Somers' sake-that was
plain-she began to take an interest in
f the tasks and plans at the Junipers. I
'Where does the money come from that

'They have their cabins and corn and
sweet potato patches. I pay them small

i 'What does that consist off'

'What buys our food and dreses?'
'The oyster beds,. They are a great
, deal of care, I assure you,'
'For you. You have the care of every
thing. Let me learn to help you, dear
I aunsie; let me learn to be useful to you.'
And Adelaide grew busy, painstaking,
and thrifty. She was dusting an old
cabinet one day when a panel which al.
ways seemed secure, clipped from its
groove into her hand, showing a cavity
filled with compartments behind. In one
was a bit of folded yellow paper. It was
not worth disturbing, at first Adelaide
thopght. At last, with reluctant curi.
osity, she drew it forth, unfolded, and
scanned its faded characters, and, as she
read, her dark eyes dilated, her cheeks
paled, she caught her breath.
Aunt Resolve was counting out money I
on the library table. Suddenly Adelaide,
all white and trembling, entered t'"e
room, the paper in her bhand. 'What I
have you theref' I
Aunt Resolve had grown suddeLly I
ghastly at the sight of the faded scrap. 1
She snatched at the girl's wrist, and
drew the paper toward her without I
touching it. She saw only too clearly
the minute, quaint character clear as E
print, though the ink was faded. Then I
she pushed Adelaide away and turned
aside her face. I
The bewildered girl sat down upon the I
footstool at her feet.
'Oh, Aunt, what is it?'
'It is nothing,' portioning off the sil
ver with a trembling hand. 'The salt a
marsh must be cut now; so go away,
child; I am busy.'
But the girl clang about her knees. I
'Oh' this is my grandfather's name
signed to this,' she cried, 'and I am home- I
'Am I not the last of my race ? His

'and when his descendants shall have I

not dare to marry, but restore the estate I

Aunt Resolve groaned and her hands
fell from their task. A
'Child, child!' she cried, 'how in the
world came you to find it?'
'I was dusting the eaqiaet. It was be
hind a panel that fell down. I did not 1
dare to touach it at first, Now I have a
read it all, and I know what it means- a
what Ihaveto do, auntie.' And now 1
the girl stood up.
'Your father gaveit to me for safe c

And it was even so.
GRIZZLY AND TEBRRIBER,
A CENTRAL PACIFIC BEAR YARN--TIlE
EARJ oETS HURT.
From the Pittaburg Dispatch:
The train was delayed several hours. A
There were but bhals dozea passengers
all told and they all got out on the little I
station platform. In looking down the I
valley from the station (Truokee is away I
up in the mountains on the main line
of the Central Paoiio Railroad) we could
see some kind of an animal coming down 1
out of the timber and making its way t
over the top of the snow towards the I
river. It looked like a steer or a male, I
and none of the traveler thought it was I
anything else. The snow was about four,
feet deep and frozen so hard that one a
could walk over the top of it without a
breaking through. Captain Vineent i
Yore, of St. Louis, a man well known in
steamboat ciroles both in St. Louis and "
in Pittsburg, and in faot all along the I
river, was oneof the passengers. There
is considerable of the dare-devil under
neath his quiet demeanor, having run
the upper Misseuari in his early days and I
attended many an Indian council along
with General Sherman when the General
livedin St. Louis. Yore was returning ]
from San Francisco, where he had been I
to settle some railroad busines for St.
Louis parties, and was fixed up neat and
bright as a new pin. He spied the
animal and said he thought it was a
bear, and that if he had a gaun he would
godown and shoot it. We all Ilaghed
at him, for he did not look much like a
bear hunter, and the station agent, a
bourly fellow, with a red annel shirt and
boots outside of bhis pants-a regular
picture of a Fortya-niner-joined ina,
saying he would give him a gan if he
wanted to shoot the grizzly, Captain
Yore was a good shot and could be cool
under very trying eiracumstances. The
agent, who was at once the express agent,
ticket agent, baeggag amasher and
everything combined, went lota itat. W
ofice and brought out a beaillMii
breech-loading rile. Handing itr,
Yore, he said sareastically: 'He '.
gun.' Captain Yore took the ,gmp
started toward the end of theow piflqt
The passengers, of course, aeyer dreame
he was in earnet. The station 'agat
called him back when hehad gone dowaIs,
off the steps and, bringing out a ii;'i
rat terrier dog of the-light wooly SEct
"Here, you'll want a dog wheayou
Captain Yore turned back, pJoi a
the dog, and putting it under thie 14,
his coat started down toward the bu-.
The grissly had by this time got eit
far enough to be plainly seen, as ip
made his way across the narrow valley.
iHe looked to be the size of a hose,
and did not seem to care whether there
was anybody within shot distance of
him or not. The bear kept quietly in i
his course, and Captain Yore went
straight toward him. Theetatlos agent
realized the danger Yore wis In, and
his anxiety was quickly communicated
to the passengers. They got elqger ad
closer, until they were only about the
length of the train apart. Yordstoppe4,
took out the little dogandsethimdown.
The terrier made for the bear at ocep,
Tand going behind him, bit him on the
heel. The bear turned around to see
what had scratched him on the foot, and
the minute he turned, ,Yore, who had
been standing motionless, watching the
bear as it came face toward him, brought
the rifle up to his nose and flashed it at
him. The bear immediately slapped
himselfon the shoulder with his paw:sad
turned toward the captain. The pas
sengers, who were watching him, were
now wild with excitement. "He bhs
hit him," said the old Califorians,"And
now he must look out for him." Yore
F never moved. The little snipe of a dog
bit the bear on the heel again, he turned
oncemore, and again. Yore unloaded on
him. The bear slapped himself on the
other shoulder and straightened up as
if to go quickly at Yore. Then the
beast broke through the snow and most
disappeared from our eight. He tum
bled and rolled and waltsed around.
The old Californians were almost breath
less with fright. "The bear is trampnlg
out a plaqe to fight, run, run I" they
screamed to Yore, but he stood motion-'
less as a statue.
The little dog flew around the top of
the pit the bear had made, barked.
Presently the bear put out his head to
get his assailant's position, and fixing
his eyes on Yore, he crawled up out of
the hole into the snow. He had Just
steadied himself on his four legs when
the dog bit him once more and Yore let
him have it again, quick as a flash, the
moment he turned and another time the
grizzly slapped himself with his paw,
indicating he had been hit. He started
on a trot towards Yore, who now had
four loads left in his rifle. Twice again
the dog bit the bear, and at each time
as he turned Yore unloaded into ble,
bringing the rifle up to his face as
quickly as if he threw a weaver's shuttle.
After he had fired the fourth load and
grizzly's pace was not slackened up
much, as you could soarcely netiee his
limp, Yore turned to move bask a few
paces, and as he did he broke through
the snow and went down to his armpits.
We cooul just see his head and shoulders.
The paessengers, expecting every moment
to see the infuriated monster erash po~r
Yore, covered their eyes ina perfoot
terror. The bear had got within a few
Syards of Yore, and but a few ecoads
would decide it. The dog bit him sgin
and Yore, who had the rifle firmly
sighted, poured it into him, two loade
in quick succession, and stretbched him
as he was almost at the end of the ridle.
The whole thing occurred in lees time
than it takes to tell it. The passengers
rusahed down with a shot. They bronuli
the immense bear up to the station.and
clubbed together and bought the rifle
for Captain Yore, and the captain laid
down a *20 gold piece for the little dog
I which he brought back with himtotSt.
