A lake of tinted iretmi to hold;
So art tbou, maid, heroad the reat.
With beautr, ripe, majesties bold.
At erery ball, at every fete.
Where aortal harmoor la rife.
Thine erea are aoucht, thy beauty marked.
And hi thy preHeoce, blight Ufa.
No care haat thou, or thought of thoae.
The vanquished now, by moat fonrot;
The naaoo'a quern, why ahouklat thou know
How brief may be thy fated Xf
And o we worship at thy shrine.
Bring tribute Incenae aa w look,

He knew how to make love, too; be was
not one of your timid lovers.
"Your gyjisy told you to twware of dark
men, did she notl" he n-ked Maggie as they
walkel home together.
"Yes," she said, "because tbey are jealous;
but, for my part, I should not like a husband
who was not jealous of me; I fbould think he
did not care enough. "
"You are right," said Owen. "Without
jealousy there is uo love. Marry me, Maggie,
and I think I shall make you happier than
any chilly hearted fellow who only wanted
you to cook his dinner for biui could. Marry
me, Maggie, and have no fear of a jealoua
man as long aa you are true to bun, for he
will not suspect you without cause. "
Aud Maggie put her hand into his. and,
though no doubt all the others saw him do it,
Owen kissed her.
And so they wre mnrried not long after,
and for a year were as happy as mortals
At the end of the year there was a "M'

Owen was au engineer, and off and away
much of the time. But when his train passed
the little cottage where his wife dwelt, he
always gave her signal iu the shape of a
whistle she bad learned to know.
"I wonder what that whistle moans!" peo
ple on the cars often asked each other, never
gueming that it was the young engineer's
signal to his wife and baby.
The child grew and throve, a pretty crea
ture, with its father's durk eves and Its
mother's golden hair; and except for the fact
that, like any other eiitjiurer, Owen took his
life In bis tmud each morning wheu he weut

me once," she used to say to herself. "But,
to be sure, I never look at any on else, and

The home where th three dwelt was In a
quiet little village on the borders of a small
but beautiful lake.
On those afternoons which brought Owen
home Maggie used to go to meet him by
what they fulled the l.ake road
At Unit alio carried the thild, then she
pushed him iu the little wagon; hut at hut
he w as able to walk beside her.
He was a sturdy little fellow , with no fear
of anything, and Maggie had much ado to
keep him in gosl order, but she was very
proud of him.
It wan a bright autumn atleruoon, and
Maggie was on her way to meet Uweu, wheu
ber attention was attracted by an unwonted
sight. Beside the lake an easel was set up,
and au artist was seated befor it making a
sketch of the surrounding s.euery. The place
aa so out of the way of tourists or summer
busrder that this thing hail never been seen
If fore, and Maggie, who was very fond of
rdctutea though ahe hod to-u but few
paused, and w:it.-hed the puiurer from afar
He was au elderly man. aud wore a velvet
coat and a large slouched hat. When be
aw Maggie standing at a little distance be
turned and smiled kindly upou her.
"Come." he said, with a strong French ac
cent; "ramie and see, if you like come."
Maggie approached the etwd
"Oh, how pretty!" said ahe "I dou't em
hi w you ever do it, I'm sure all witu that
little brush and some paint."
"And some brains," said the Frenchman.
"Oh, of course you must think it ail out,"
aid Muggie "the sky aud tliecloudsand the
war. What lovely little waves!"
Maggie stood watching biui as be worked,
aud for the tlrst time iu bur bio ahe forgot
The little creature wander-d away, going
nearer to the water than his mother ever
permitted him to go. aud shortly waded la
further aud further down tne gradual alone
of siuuolb sand, until a sudden dip took him
off his feet, aud at his scream his mother
turned to e bun stnicgliug -sinking
drowning is.-fore her eyes.
The next uistant th Frenchman bad
tiu-owa uff lik. cowt, kicked off bia abaca, and
waa lu the water, lie aeemed to b a guod
swuumer, soon grasped the child'a garments
and reached the shore with him.
Maggie clasped her boy to her heart, and
dudiiig the little fellow unharmed, and now
laughing, flung herself upou her knee he

"How ahull I thank you!" she said. "You
have saved my hoy's life."
"Oh, it was uothing, it was nothing," th
Frenchman repeated, resuming his coat and
shoes. "A pluuge hurts nobody this weather.
I go hume to dry myself, that is all."
Uaggi, however, could not look upou th
mutter calmly. Hue had expected to lee her
child drown liefore her eyes. She waa trem
bling from head to foot;" and, after striving
in vaiu to restrain herself, she burst Into a
flood of tears, which ewled in a fit of hys
terical laughing and sobbing.
"Oh, these women," said the Frenchman to
himself, but he was too gallant to express bis
I'lacuig Maggie upou his sketching stool, he
knelt beside ber, applied a little smelling
bottle to her nostrils aud shortly restored her
"Jfew, little mother, do nut cry any more,"
ae said. "You should laugh because the
little one la safe. Ah good heavens I how
And then, lu a erfwtly paternal manner,
he kissed her. Aud Maggie, crylug out:
"You good, good man! I shall pray (or
you vry uight of my life," kissed him
It was all fur th preserver of her boy, of
Owen's boy, aud because aha waa really out
of her mind at th moment. But at this in
itaut Owen himself, coming rapidly along the
bore road, caught sight of bis wife. Th
child, perched on a rock bard by, was play
ing unconcernedly with his wet shoe, but
Owen did not see him. What be saw waa a
stranger kissing hia wife, his wife kissing th
stranger again ; and all that was fond aud
teuder and lovmg flew from bia soul.
"Th dark man," of whom th gypsy bad
warned Maggie, was her husband now. He
ram rushing down toward them, and the
Frenchman, seeing what he fancied not
without reason to be a madman approach
ing, turned and fled. His lighting days, if
he ever bad any, were over. He was willing
to risk bis life to save a beautiful little child,
but this was another matter. Al fur Owen,
he reached Moggie's side at three bounds,
and arising ber arm held It In a grip of Iron.
"1 saw you kiss him!" he hissed iu ber ear.
"You play me fulee, do you your
"Owen, you am crazy," said Maggie.
"Rpeak; did you kiss lnm I can't lielUrv

not be. Hay you did not; that th sun waa

"I did," said Maggie; "yea, I kissed him.

"No doubt that was madahie's husband,"
he said, "When madam shall have, .ex
