The long moan of the monotonous sea, a1
And ceaseless wash of never.ending waves; in
The roll of foaming billows thro' dim eaves fri
Skirting the unknown shores and hashfully
The lisp of lapping wavelets in soft glee
About the moonlit sands. No wind raves
Above the solemn waste; the night is still pr
Save the sea-sound and casual sea-bird's shrill w
Hark ! the moan grows into a troubled cry, y
The billows plash more suddenly, and leap
Like startled herds that plunge before they fly;
A weird wind riseth swiftly and doth sweep
The salt send from each wave-top toward the sky 'M
And the grear sea awaketh from it sleep. hi
II. re
The wild wind wails above the foaming seas, he
The billows break in swirling clouds of white in
The sickly moon, cloud-hidden, scarce gives wi
light,
And the dense mists are blown to shreds of
fleece; to
The whole sea panteth for a wild release, lii
Like some great brute with fleeing prey in sight; fe;
And the harsh echo from the surf-beat shore m
Blend with the boom where the great caverns
roar.
Hush the wind shiver, moans, and dies away di
The foam-wreat' d billows now no longer floee
Along the dismal track of swirling spray.
The stars come forth and shimmer mournfully Co
There is no sound at all but the soft sway th
Of l'mg waves breathing on the sleeping sea. tr
TEMPTATION. i
(San Francisco News Letter.) i

"halt !"
The command rang out loud and
clear, and the measured tramp, tramp
,f a thousand armed men was silenced
by its repeated echo.
But why "halt T" Was not this regi- t
ment of ten hundred gray-clad volun
teers marching out to meet the blue- th
coated legions from the North' Hard- hm
ship, privation and death every man of th
them all looked forward to, but a 'halt'
at this moment they did not expect.
This was the last gala-day that they
might ever hope for. They were march: br
ing out of their native city to meet the ra
Yankee invader. Here they had lived al
and were known, and every house-top
and window and coign of vantage was in
orowded with the fair, loved faces of
the mothers, sisters, wives and sweet- sa
hearts of those who were going down- he
though amid waving banners and blar- in
ing trumpets-into the Valley of the qt
Shadow of Death. Often, in the peace. th
fu! days, they had marched gaily or
through this very street, and even then W
a stoppage would have spoiled their a
triumphant procession. But this grim a
holiday was, as they well knew, to be a
the last with most of them. "Morituri pt
e salittant !" cried the gladiators, as ne
bthey strutted past Caesar, and the same de
but brave despairing cry of the doomed al
echoed from the hearts of these podr bi
boys as they passed in their glittering
harness under the balconies, where do
handkerchiefs that could be spared bi
from tearful eyes waved a last fond W
farewell. What wonder, then, that they w
were surprised when the music was (
hushed and the column halted in the cc
most aristocratic and crowded thorough- . m
fare of the city. n
The spectators wondered, also, as they t
saw the Colonel dismount, turn hies i
charger over to an orderly, and press t
his way through the throng to the en- b
trance of the grandest mansion in the Pc
avenue. Could they have seen what al
passed a few seconds after the great la
doors had closed behind him, they h
would have marveled less. If
The Colonel opened the door himself, tl
and when he entered was not surprised t
to find the house apparently deserted,
for he knew that all the servants were n
at the upper windows and balconies.
Yet it was evident that he was in search le
of some one, as'with clanking sword a1
and jingling spurs he strode hurriedly 8
from room to room. He had explored 1
Severy familiar apartment in vain, and I
was about to extend his search to the Ir
Ifloor above, when a sudden thought b
;seemed to strike him, and passing into g
the garden he hastened across the lawn 8
to a small summer-house which stood a
alone at the further end. At the en
trance he stopped abruptly, and for a '
second or two stood silently gazingf
I within. He had found the object of his
quest. Upon a low rustic bench sat ali
woman, with her head bowed upon her
arms over a little table. One would ii
have said she was asleep but for an I
occasional low sob that made her frame h
tremble. The thick, soft grass had y
muflled the souud of his footsteps, and a
she was not aware of his presence till 11
he murmured, 'Gwendolen !'
With a little cry of mingled surprise 1
and joy, she raised her head, drew back 9
SWith her hands the heavy masses of 9
golden hair which had fallen over her l
face, and stood lootlng at him as if she ,
'Why, Reginald,' be sal, as soon as pi
she could find speech, ' thought your so
regiment was out of the oity by now; re
and-and-" she added, as if apologis- pi
ing for the tears that still streamed qi
from her soft blue eyes, 'and-I was w
afraid I should never see you gain.' Ir
'Then why,' he asked, a little re- hi
proachfully, 'why were you not at the tiL
window to see me for the last time? st
When I said farewell to you last night, at
you promised to be there.' w
She went up to himasnd' plased ber bi
little hands upon his broad shoulders. w
'My darling,' she said, looking up in W
his face, I could not do it. I wished to I
remember you as I saw you last night- w
here in the garden-when you held me in
in your arms and I promised to be your In
wife on your return.' N
t 'Well, dearest,' he said, as hedrew her al
to him and kissed her still trembling tl
lips,, 'not seeing you at the window, I 8'
feared Flst you were ill, and balted t
my legiment out there in the street, tt
° much to everybody's wonderment. I
must hurry, Owendolen. Once more,
darling, good-bye--good-bye!' i
From where she stood listening, she di
could hear his strong, rich voice give I
the order to advance, followed by the -
tramp, tramp of his legionaries; she "
could hear the gay music and the cheer- ca
ing crowd; but she did not go to the win- w
dow, and had her lover returned five
minutes later, he would have found her
in the little Summer-house, with her
head bowed upon her arms, just as be- hb
fore.
iI. 01
'Halt!'
The hoarse command broke upon the t
quiet of the night, and brought to a at
stand-still a small party of soldiers who It
were escorting an ambulance along the fo
the street through which the Colonel V
had marched his troops to battle some ol
three months before. And the belt was lp
made where he had halted. to
'This wretched old ambulance has PI
broken down again,' growled the Corpo- di
ral in charge of the guard. 'Guess its's t
all op with the young fellow inside, now.
If he doesn't get under the doctor's care i
in half an hour, he's a dead man.' I
f The words were caught by a lady who
sat in the shadow at a window of a great m
house opposite. She rose, audaummon- d
ing a servant, sent him out to make in.u f
e quiries. The man soon returned with t
the news that they had a Yankee pris. 01
oner in the ambulance-a young officer hi
who had been wounded, it was thought ni
p mortally, in a skirmish some twenty w
u miles north of the city. The oecer was di
e a personage of importance, and might, it
i perhaps, be induced to give valuable li
a news about the enemy, but the guard hi
e despaired of getting him to the hospital hi
I alive, now that that ambulance had hi
r broken down.
g Without amoment's hesitation, Owen- Il
e dolen, for it was she, gave orders to it
d bring the wounded man into the house, iE
d where the guard could also stay. This bl
y was done, and in a few minutes the Pj
v young officer lay insensible upon a more
e comfortable bed than he had known for tA
.many a long month. A doctor was sum
mooed, and Owendolen asked permission a
to watch by the patient's bedside dur- 1
Sing the night. After some kindly pro- t4
a tests the physician yielded. 'There will d
. be little to do,' he said: 'I doubt if the p
i poor young fellow will ever be onsedous
t Iagain. This, however, my dear youngli
t I lady you must be very careful about: if, n
I by good luck, he should regain conscious. j
ness, wait about fifteen minutes and *
f, then administer the eontents of this lit- G
t le phial. Upon that his life depends; l
i, without it he will surely die before mor- a
e ning.'
S Alone in the still chamber, Owendo- a
b len sat and watched, thinking of her b
d absent lover, and praying that somePgood
y Samaritan might do as muach for Ads in
d case of need. At abotit two o'clock in
d the morning the patient began to move
e reetlessly on hise conch and to moan fee
it bly. At length he opened his eyes and t
, gazed with bewilderment about him. I
n Seeing Owendolen by the bedside, he I
d asked her where he was. I
3. 'Among friends,' she answered gently, t
a 'but do not talk yet and you will soon I
g feel stronger.' c
is 'Stronger!' he groaned. 'No, no, Iehall I
a never grow stronger. I feel that death
er s at hand.' She thought it beat not to a
Id 1answer him, and he lay silentfor several a
m minutes. Then suddenly he turned to I
es her and said: 'Young lady, whoever I
id you are, yon have been kind to me, a s
id stranger taken in arms against your <
ill people. I am sure you will not refuse I
one more favor to a dynlag man. Befome
se I die I wish yon to accept a commission
3k which I am pledged to perform. Will.
oft you promiset' She bowed assent, know
Ir ing that to oppose hisb talkling would
be only excite him more. 'Listea, then. A
 pedition organised to surprise the garlt
ar son of some buildings held by a Seotheto
r; regiment. I was ordered to takea small 1
a- party and advance upon the obAers' li
d quarters. The night was very dark,and to;
Is we succeeded in creeping past the sea* 0
tries without being discovered. On our of
e- hands and knees we crawled up to a lit- l
is tie building, from which a light wus del
it shining. Through the open door I saw tee
t, an officer-from his uniform I knew he tal
was a Colonel-seated at a table, with A
a his back to me, and reading a letter
e. written in a woman's delicate band. Col
in Whas foul impulse seised me I know not. ggo
to I could easily have taken bhim prisoner. arr
- without killing him, but my sword was slil
s in my hand, and, gliding up to him, I ti
Ir ran him through before he could turn. wa
Next moment the garrison asis alarmed, ShI
or and, rushing out of the room, I Joined in
the fray. The position was soon taken, f
I and it became my duty to pest our sea
,1 tinels. In doing this I again visited sio
,t, the room where I had committed the fro
I murder-for a murder it was. My vie- w
e, tim lay there, gasping his last. He of
beckoned to me, sad with a great effort th,
le drew from his breast a locket. 'Take jar
re this,' he whispered hoarsely, 'find her l
e -give it to her-her name is-' but his gel
•o voice grfw so faint that I could not we
~. catch the name, and a moment later he br
a, was dead. But, over his dead body, I Oh
e, swore to do his bidding, though I sought dai
.r through all the world. He came from
or this city of yours. Perhaps she lives
e- berq. Will you find hert The locket
is in the little pouch on my sword-belt Im
over there. Get it.'
Gwendolen rose and crossed to where
is the sword glittered in a corner, and
a shivered as she touched the weapon we

ie found the pouch and in it a little paper dri
el which she carried over to the lamp and at

Her back was turned to the wounded die

,- did he see, a moment later, as her eye tra

th the indescribable expression that swept Ne
over her fair face. Well for him that rig
er he did not. Judith most have looked wil
I upon Holofernes and Joel upon Sisera J
