And her rich dewy lips In their Innocent fondness

THE ROCK BY THE SEA.
"H)w absurdly disagreeable you can make
yourself, Jack. But there I'm not going to
quarrel with you. now much longer are you
going to keep me up to abuse mef" and Ruby
laughed aloud In her usual saucy, tantalizing
manner. Jack looked at ber, bis face as black
as a thunder cloud, on which was written
a stern determination, but she was In no way
appalled by it On the contrary, she looked
at him gayly and carelessly, as if she were
perfectly Indifferent to bun or his moods.
"Miss Howard," he began, "MlsslHow
ard," she mimicked mockingly; "since when,
pray ! How ceremonious we grow, to be
He resumed, as if she bad not interrupted
him; "I will not detain you but a moment
longer. While 1 am convinced that at the
present time you are perfectly heartless,
owing more to the unhappy way of your
bringing up and to thea influences and fash
Ions of society than to natural hardness of
heart" "Oh! thanks, thanks awfully,
you are too good," she broke in again, laugh
ingly. It was all as good as a burlesque to
her. accustomed as she was to lovers' rant
ing. "I am as firmly convinced," he went
on. In so calm a tone that it should have
warned ber that this meant more than an or
dinary tiff; "that you love me, but, with
your natural perversenesa, will neither ac
knowledge it to yourself nor me."
As be said this with an air of a judge
pronouncing sentence on some unhappy pris
oner with his gray eyes Cxed on ber face
with the sternest gaze tliey were capable of
in spite of herself the bloom on her soft,
round cheek deepened to a bright red, and
for an instant ber xaucy, mocking eyes fell
before his. A ti-ansient smile passed over his
gloomy face at this evidence of his power and
left it even gloomier than before. As he re
garded the lovely, half shy fwe before him
he commenced again bitterly: "And why
will you not yield to that love and make us
both happy I I will tell you. You do not
wish to be tied to one; to receive the love and
homage of one is not to your tastn. Oh, no;
not for years to come. If I would wait pa
tiently, and In the mean time bo always ready
to dance attendance on your whims, not no
ticing any one else, and always keeping in
the background when a desirable flirtation
earns up, than, perhaps, if you didnt meet
soma one you preferred to me, after keeping
aie in suspense all that time, you might gra
ciously condescend to marry ma. But I de
cline to become the slave of any woman;
and, as much as I lore you, I am going to
leave you forever."
"Ha, hat" and ber sweet, low laugh rang
out like a chime of silvery bells. "The plot
thickens, riese go on; it is as lovely as
"I know and feel," snid Jack, earnestly,
"that we are especially suited to each other.
and I believe that in time you will realize the
truth of what I say and will regret me, even
as I regret you now but no more. I've al
ready said too much more than I In tea dad.
Good-by,"and with adeop bow he turned
"Well, of all things she murmured.
"Forever! Fudge. I'll see him to-morrow
on the promenade the same as usual He is
delicious. I do like him the best when he as
serts himself. He is grand when he gets en
raged. He looks so stern and glares so, and
Is so unapproachable that I am almost afraid
of him the darling. If I don't look out ha
will end in making me marry him before the
season la over. Of course I shan't marry
any one else, but I'm not going to hurry my
self; there's plenty time." After which sage
conclusion she went up to her room in gay
spirits, thinking of the good time she would
have in making up with Jack as she had done
a number of times before.
The next day Miss Ruby failed to meet
Jack aa usual. Ia fact a week passed, and in
ail that time be bad not called. She had
mlassd his presence from ball and opera and
very place that she had graced with her
bright presence. At last, making a few in
quiries, she found that Jack was out some
where on the broad ocean on his way to
China to Join his brother, a tea merchant,
and was likely to be absent a term of years. '
Although outwardly Ruby managed to
conceal the shock she had received, she could
not conceal from her own heart that some
thing had gone from her that she missed and
longed for with an indescribable longing and
a wild regret. It was all the more madden
ing that no one was to blame for her sorrow
but herself. The old places had lost their
charm. Everything rad everybody was in
sipid, flat and monotonous. Ah I If he would
only return, how gladly would she acknowl
edge her love, and how gladly would she
marry him at the earliest date he might men
tion. Had she known his address at that
time she would have written to tell him of
bar love and penitence.
Four years after Jack had gone Ruby was
at a fashionable watering place. She wat
still the belle of every assemblage. Her in
difference and utter carelessness, combined
with bar rare beauty, brought her scores of
i admirers, whom she drove almost mad with
ber coldness. She was still as lovely as ever,
but in her big, brown eyes there was a shade
of sadness, and a slightly absent look which
gave a touch of soul to a face that had here
tofore sparkled with wit and glowed with
gay sty and high spirit, but bad lacked feet
fag. Now it was perfect If Jaok could
only eee her now.
One day she was taking her morning stroll,
and feeling an unaccountable depression of
spltita Her great eyes were wearing thai!
most absent look, and as they wandered over
the crowd that was ever coming and going,
aba started violently and her delicate, high
bred face turned as white as the filmy lace at
her throat She fixed an absorbed gase on a
vehicle that waa slowly passing. The occu
pant was a broad shouldered, grand looking
man dreesed in gray. His shapely head
waa crowned with a white straw hat,
a pair of large, . disfiguring spectacles
of colored glass completely hid his eyes; his
firm mouth was shaded with a long brown
mustache, and between his lips was the in
evitable cigar. No whiskers hid his firm chin
and fine rounded throat A footman at his
Ida was driving a span of spirited blocks. In
aa Distant the equipego waa hidden by the
crowd, but Ruby's eyes would have known
that face, that form, if it had been a f or more
fleeting glim pee. She drew a long breath,
and by the time she reached her hotel and
looked at herself In her room, she was startled
at the Joyous brightness that sparkled in her
yes and beamed from very feature. All
day her face wore an eager, expectant look,
ber eyes were ever searching for something.
She withdrew early and sought ber room,
weary and heartsick.
"Oh," she said aloud, in a troubled voice,
"does he know I am here, and still remain
' She sat there alone, white and sad ; her face
wet with tears; her heart torn with conflict
ing emotions and a terrible fear that he bad
forgotten her. The next morning, after a
sleepless night, she started out alone, her
cheeks pale, ber spirits drooping. She shaped
hor course for a hidden retreat behind the
rocks, where she had often dreamed away
hours uninterrupted. As she n eared the place
she saw that her favorite rocky eeat was
already occupied by an intruder. He eat in
a desponding attitude, with his head resting
on his hand and his gaze directed toward the
sea. Occupied with her own thoughts, Ruby
was about to turn away without taking any
notice of him, when be changed bis position,
removed a cigar from his mouth, blew forth
a cloud of smoke and Ruby saw who it waa
Her footsteps had given no sound on the
soft sand. He had not heard her. She stood
perfectly still, trembling so that she could
scarcely stand. Here was the man for whose
presence she bad longed for all these sad
years, and now she dared not speak to him.
He might receive her patience with scorn,
and might be married! Terrible, cruel
thought I While this was passing through
her mind she was startled by hearing some
one coining that way whistling. Not wish
ing to be seen, she sprang behind a conven
ient bowlder, Just in time to escape the eyes
of the new comer, who was the same man she
bad seen with Jack the day before.
The man came up and stopped beside Jack,
who said, impatiently: ""Why did you come
for me so soon 1"
"Why, en, you said 'come in an hour,' and
it la up, sure."
"I dont believe it's up," Jack cried vio
lently, "but because I am a poor, blind stick
you think you can fool me. But you cant
Go away and let me be in peace if you can.
and don't dare to ooine near me again under
an hour from now. Do you understand t an
hour from now, a whole hour."
"Tee, sir, I understand," replied poor Peter
deprecatingly, preparing to move off, after
casting a glance at the watch he wore to make
sure of the time.
"Stay," called Jack, irritably. "First tell
me if any one is anywhere in sight I dont
want to nit here as a show for any one if I
can help it"
"Not a soul, sir, to be seeu," responded
"Then clear ot," was the gentle reply.
After John's retreating form was lost to
view Ruby stole forth palo and trembling
her cheeks moiat with tears of pity. How
wretched ho looked bow sad bow she pitied
him. She forgot everything except her love
for him and wished to comfort him. On the
impulse of the moment she went ttrbim and
put both soft, round arms around his neck,
and laid ber cheek agaiust his. Her sudden
embrace aroused him effectually from the
gloomy thoughts he was indulging in, and
gave him a little shock. But as soon as he
could collect his scattered senses he became
aware that it was a woman ! Yes, a woman 1
A mad woman, no doubt! Did she intend to
strangle him, or what The novelty of it
pleased him. He remained perfectly still and
awaited developments like a philosopher.
"Jack Jack Hunter, don't you know mef
said a tearful voice in his ear.
"Heaveusl That voice! Ruby!'' he cried,
doubtingly, but nevertheless throwing both
arms about ber and drawing ber to him
while he rained kisses on her face. At last
he drew ber gently down on the rock beside
him and said: "My darling, words are not
needed to tell me it is Ruby, or that you love
ma But tell me you are still free as I am."
He did not ask bow or why she happened
to be there. He did not care. That she was
there was the one supreme thought of that
happy moment -
"I am still Ruby Howard," she murmured
"Thank God!" he said, reverently, "and

ThsB'cmach Distils Acids.
These, if existent in a natural quantity,
and unvltiated by bile, play their part in
the functions of digestion and assimila
tion. But the artificial acid resulting
from the inability of the stomach to con
vert food received by it into sustenance,
is the producer of flatulence and heart
burn, which are the most barrassing
symptoms of dyspepsia. The best
carminative is Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters. Far more effective is it than car
bonate of soda, magnesia or other alka
line salts. These invariably weaken the
stomach without producing permanent
benefit. No man or woman chronically
dyspeptic, and consequently nervous, can
be in possession of the full measure of
vigor allowed by nature. Therefore, in
vigorate and regulate the system, and by
so doing protect it from malaria, rheu
mstism and other serious maladies.

Reply to all who do intesyi
To use you thus lo gain their end:
" When you for .your own soap create,
Upon its worth demand as great
As Ivory Soap this day can claim,
I'll buy. should trade require the same;
But have no time, I tell you true.
To introduce your soap for you,
And customers perhaps offend
With goods I fear to recommend."
Don't buy the soap that salesmen say:
" Is like the Ivory every way,"
For grocers can this tale unfold
Of every hundred cakes they sold
On seventy-five a Ios3 they bore.
Or else it ne'er had left their store.
