THE MYSTERIOUS WIDOW.
Years ago, before the province of New
Brunswick was the populous place it is now;
there stood on the sea coast, several milos
from where the city of St. John now stands,
little straggling sort of village, composed
principally of fishermen's cottagna. Little
bettor than huts they wero, and a rough, un
polished, but honest and hard working sot
were their occupants. In winter, when the
snow waa piled hiph and the freoziug winds
blew piercingly cold, the inhabitants of M
met in tome one of the cottaRts, where, with
dance and sour, they beguiled tho evening
hours, as happy as though they knew nothing
of the bust lint;, busy world shut out by their
native kills. And in summur the pleasant
moonlight evenings were spent in sailing over
the bright waters of the bay, or in wandering
iu pairs through the dim woods some sturdy,
sun browned youth whispering in the ear of Lis
inamorita tho "old, old story." Everything
flowed on in tbat little sparoast village for
years end years in the sume calm, monoto
nous way; almost forgotten by the inbab
. itants was the fact that there existed any
other world but the little one in which they
lived. Sometimes, it is true, rumors would
reach them of the bold manner in which the
revenue was cheated by the smugglers of
Eastport ; but the honest fishermen, secure in
their rockbov.nd retreat, cared little for this.
At length, however, tho inhabitants were
aroused from their stagnation by quite a lit
tle romance, of which the following is a brief
Standing on a bleak, deeolate sort of emi
nence that projected somewhat from the
mainland was a littlo ruined stone cottage.
It had formerly Iwen built by ouo of the Csh
armen, who, finding he could not rcsido in
such- cold, cheerless snot, had dusurted it,
and the hut had long bo'ii without an in
mato. It was ever hore the wind blew cold
est in winter, and hero the sun's rays fell
hottest in rammer. Tho summit of the
dreary hill was crowned with stunted spruco,
dwarfed and blackened by tho intense i'rosta
of many winters. Ovur tho rocks below
broke, with a dull, sullon roar, the waves of
the Bay of Fundy; and oftentimes, in the
spring, the tides would rUe so high and so
rapidly as to entirely surround it, cutting it
off like an Wand from the mainland. The
inhabitants had very appropriately named it
Such was the state of thing-, when, one raw
spring morning, tho news went flvinsr
through tho village, that "Eleak Point
ananry" uad got au oceuiant. A low.
black, rakish looking schooner had come up
the bay the night before; a boat had put oft
rrom her, leaving a woman on Bleak Point.
Then it bad returned to tho schooner, which,
before daylight, was off and awav.
Of courso, everybody waa all aglow to dis
cover who she was, and what a woman hardy
kuu tuurnjjwius cuougu to live in so lonely a
place could Wk like. Thin curioeity was
soon satisued; tor a iter tho urst few days the
new comer did not seem disposed to conceal
herself. Let tbum rise as early in the morn
ing aa they pleaded they would find her tip
before thorn strolling about among the rocks.
This wonder was stiU further augmented at
finding her young aud eminently handsomo,
with a healthy brown face, and the bright
est vivacious black eyes in the world. The
young men of tho village oould speak of
nothing but her beauty; and the hours they
should have spent in catching fish wero
wasted in devising schemes to catch her.
The ladies of tho vilingo, were, however, ab
solutely scandalized by the utter indifference
which she manifested in regard to dress and
Indeed her garments generally looked as
though sho had jumped into them. She dis
pensed altogether with hat and bonnet and
wore in its place a silk handkerchief, knotted
under her chin after the fashion of the French
women. Still, even the jealous village belles
were obliged to own that nothing could have
at off better the dark, bright style of her
beauty than the rich, brilliant hues of her
For a time tho villagers held aloof from
the new comor; but, finding thoir reserve
waa met with careless indiHerenee on her
part, they soon began to change their tactics.
A few of the village maids and matrons
called et Bleak Poiut shanty, and, though
shocked beyond measure at the universal dis
order reigning without and within, thoy left
on the whole, rather favorably impressed by
its mistress. There waa a wicked twinkle in
her bright black eyes as she begged them to
excuse the state in which thoy found things,
on the plea that she "wasn't used to house
keeping." All their endeavors to discover
ber name and business proved, however, to
be vain, but from several accidental remark
dropped by her they concluded she waa a
widow. As it was impossible for her to be
spokan of without a name they resolved to
give her one themselves and admiring her
bright, black eyes and jetted locks tbey con
cluded to givo her that of Black. Accord
ingly, the name by which tho handsome
stranger was known in the village was the
"Widow Black" a name which, after a
laugh at first, she professed her willingness to
be known by.
And weeks passed away, and the Widow
Black remained tho sole dweller on Bleak
Point During this time she became the
reigning beiio and prime favorite of the
good people of 11 , in spito of the mystery
In which sho was enveloped. She accepted
every invitation to parti js, and picnics, and
quilting frolics, and "candy sprees," always
without exception in the tumbled dress and
everlasting silk handkerchief. Such songs as
she could sing in such a voice, such a splendid
dancer as she was, such stories as she could tell,
now keeping the audience convulsed with
laughter, and now bringing tears into eye
all unused to the meltinj mood I Kb party
of pleasure was complete without the Widow
Black; no wonder, then, every unmarried
man in the village had his heart pierced by
the black eyes of the lively widow, and every
woman under 40 was wild with jealousy and
But the handsome widow moved on her
way as if totally unconscious and indifferent
as to what people thought of her. In fact,
different from all other widows that ever
were heard of, she showed at all times a de
cided preference for the society of the young
ladies and rather laughed at all the tender
devotion of her rustic swains.
One night old Miles Judaon, being out un
usually late casting his nets, was surprised to
sea the same low, black, suspicious looking
schooner that hod left among them the
Widow Black enter the bay. Wondering
whether she had come to carry off the widow
again he secreted himself to watch her.
Presently a boat was lowered, several bales
were hoisted over the vessel's side, and the
boat rowed to the land and disappeared In
one of the numerous islets surrounding
Block Point. More and more mystified the
old man determined to watch their motions,
and three hours after he beheld the boat re
turn to the schooner, which instantly
weighed anchor and made off.
The following day old Miles Judson sat
.Mnff to a stranger from St. John, who had
arrived tbat day. Seated within was the
handsome Widow Block, chatting away with
Miles' daughter Ruth, a "Bluenose" maiden,
with aa bright an eye as ever Dashed back
"Have you heard anything lately about
that celebrated smuggler Capt. li rsatd
the rpjni mentioning the name of a noted
"'2Jo, we hear nothing here," grumbled
old Miles, while Ruth looked up with surprias
at the widow's sudden start.
"Wall, peopJ t are talking of nothing else in
Eairport and St John." said his companion;
"h a regular daredevil and cheats the
rwvaaua so boldly that on cannot halpfsaU
tog jynipathy for him. Somehow th custom.
bouse discovered that howashoveringarouna
Eastport, and a dozen or two revenue cutters
were sent out to watch him. but lot the
schooner ran the gauntlet of them all, de
livered her cargo somewhere, in spite of their
teeth, and whore the beaks cannot discover.
It was a valuable one. too; she was loaded
with mm and sugar."
The Widow Black had suddenly censed hor
oonversatior, and sat listening with a look of
interest to this recital As he ceased she bit
hor lip, and stooped down to conceal the
smilo that, in spite of all her efforts, broke
over hor countenance. The motion was
observed by Miles; the incident of the pre
ceding night flashed across bis mind, and in a
moment he felt convinced ho had seen the
smugglers, and that the "widder" was con
nected in some way with them.
' Miles Judson was a prudent men, and he
determined to keep the discovery to himself,
and to set out for St. John the next day and
inform the authorities. Acting on this reso
lution he adroitly changed the conversation.
Keeping his eye fixed ou the widow, who, all
unconscious of his gaze, was now flirting
most desperately with Master Bill, the old
man's son and heir
"Don't you Hud it kinder lonosomoup there
by yourself !" boid Bill, with a tender glance
toward the "widder."
"Oh I I'm used to it now, and like it well
enough," the replied carelessly. .
There waa a pause after this. BUI sat
gnawing his finger nails, and evidently try
ing to say something that stuck in his throat
The widow sat tapping the floor impatieutly
with one foot, and waiting for the return of
Ruth, who had left them.
' Widder I I want to get married," said
BUI, at length, with startling suddenness.
"Do youf said the widow, lifting hor be
wildoring black cyos to his face, astonished
at the abruptness of the avowal.
"Widder," continued Bill, picking up cour
age by a desperate effort, "wouldn't you like
to got married again ("
"Married again!" replied tho lady; "how
do you know I ever was married t"
"Why, every ona calls you a v. idder, and I
never heard toll of any one being a widder
without first bcin' a widder," replied Bill.
"Yea," said the widow, with difficulty re
pressing a laugh, "every one calls me a
widow, but whether I am or not is another
"Well," said Bill, who, as ho afterwards
expressed it, was determined to "go the whole
hog." "I'm a chap as is pretty well off. I'm
goia' to build a new shanty, aud get a new
boat some of these times, end I'm a pretty
good lookiu' fellor hem! so hem! Widder,
if you'll have mo, you and me'U got spliced:"
Amazement for a moment kept the widow
silent, and she stared in the face of her sheep
ish admirer, who, blushing, startled, sat cross
ing one leg uneasily over tho other. Then
every other feeling gave way to her sonse of
the ridiculous, and, loaning back in her chair,
she burst into a peal of laughter that made
tho old house ring.
The unusual sound brought the whole house
hold to the spot Thore was urettv Ruth
laughing from sympathy, without the slight
est idea of what the fun was about ; there was
old Miles staring at them with mouth and
eyes wide open: there sat Bill, looking irre
sistibly sheepish, and there sat the widow,
laughing and laughing untU the tears stood
in hor eyes.
"What what what the dickens is the
matter f" roared the old man, staring first at
one and then at the other in uttor bewilder
ment "I I must go," said the widow, in a voice
faint from excessive laughter ;" come up this
evening, Ruth, I have something to tell
you." And, still laughing, the "widder" van
ished. That evening two ovents worthy of notice
took place in the Utile village of M . Old
Miles departed full of an important secret to
the city, and Ruth Judson and tho Widow
Black sat for an hour or more in close con
ference on the rocks of Bleak Point. What
Ruth learned there she did not disclose, but
sundry ejaculations of amazement and sundry
expressions of delight proved that it was far
The following evening, when the gloaming
was falling over the rock bound coast of New
Brunswick, the Widow Black sat in hor littlo
cottage, gazing in the fire and lost in thought.
Suddenly, the tramp of feet approaching
Bleak Point fell on her quick ear. Springing
to her feet she saw several constables, headed
by old Miles, approaching her oottage.
Scarcely had she time to draw tho bolt wheu
a heavy knock came to tho door, and a staru
voico commanded her to open in the name of
"Not until I know your business," said the
widow boldly; "who are you and what do
"We are officers of tho law. You are sus
pected of being connected with smugglers,
and of concealing contraband goods about
your premises, and our business is to arrest
you and seurch for thorn," was the reply.
"Then let me assure you that your trouble
will be ail for nothing. The smuggled goods
you speak of were here, but ore now whuro
the eyes of tho custom house will nevor full
on thorn. As to arresting mo, a poor, lone
widder,' 1 am sure you are too much of a
gentleman to do it."
"Open the door, or I will break it open,"
shouted the enraged officer.
"areas: away," retorted the provoking
widow, with the utmost coolness.
With an oath tho officer rushed against the
door; at the some moment the widow drew
the bolt, and be fell bead first into the room,
while old Miles, who rushed after, lay
sprawled on top of mm. Before they could
rise the widow seized the remaining officer,
and hurled him with the greatest ease over
his fallen companions. Then, drawing the
door after her and securing it on the outside,
the widow was off and away.
Search was made for tho widow, but in
vain. No crace of any one answering the de
scription given of her conld be found.
neither could any smuggled roods be discov
ered on Bleak Point, although they easily
discovered they had lately been there.
A few weeks later, late one night, a hand
somo young fellow dressed as a sailor entered
the village of M . Advancing to the
house of Miles Judson he fastened a paper to
the door, then with a loud, peculiar whistle,
crouched wider one of the windows. A few
moments after and the door slowly opened
and Ruth appeared. Tucking her under his
arm the young man led the way to where a
boat lay on the shore, and a few minutes after
they were rapidly skimming over the bay
toward St. John.
A few hours after sunrise every man,
woman and child in M were crowding
round the cottage of old Miles. And there,
written in large, flourishing capitals, they

It only remains for us to say that the above
facts are strictly true. Ned Dry son was pre
