me to recognize her at the Teatro Bolls.
"You say," she replied, "that George Ham
ilton must have preceded or followed you to
"Such is my opinion, senora."
"Why should he do that Not for your
sake, surely; nor yet for his own. With me
(so cruelly, deceived) he cannot hope to be
reconciled. Hesides, he is outlawed in Brar.il
and the Kiver Plate republics for heavy de
falcations." A light broke upon me. The mystery was
being solved, and by au accidental friend of
the family. There were two George Hoiuil
tous, aud I Serena imagined that she hod
married the wrong one. It had been my
friend's father's name, I knew. He had one
day told me that about the time of his father "
death, in Massachusetts, the name bad been
adroitly used by a swindler In South Ameri
ca, who obtained large sums of fnoncy.
"You became George Hamilton's wife here.
In Montevideo, seuorar" was now my leading
question. , .
"No," she said, "at Paris. " Though I was
born in Uruguay, my education waa com

you can return the locket, Alas, it was my
wedding gift to him you still call friend!"
The gay assemblage was now. breaking up.
On every side were heard shouts of "Good
night!" and "Merry Christina!" Mrs. Ham
ilton's carriage had been ordered, ami, as I
handed her into it, she said:
"1 am glad, senor, that we Lave met
Something tells me joy will come from it!"
Then, with "good night," sweetly spoken, she
sank bock on the cushions.
Following her into the coach, Lieut S
closed its door. His extended hand was has
tily grasped and released. As the vehicle
rolled away, they cried in unison, "Merry

Lieut S possessed them both. " hatever

was in line of duty. Talking aliout it was
not. Such men can be implicitly trusted.
So I told him La Serena's story, and my own
confidence. He li.-tened, without comment.
until I had finished. I lien he said:
"Rumor has it that 1 love Mrs. Hamilton,
and would marry her if she were free. In
this judgment rumor wrongs uit and scan

The Ixndon mail had come in. A
copy of The liaily Teleprsjih, nearly five
weeks' old. had leen torn from its wrapper.
I picked it up, and glanced here nnd there
through its news columns. This jiaragrapb
burnt into my brain :

Joyously was the birth of another year

the echoes of a bustling town. Itig and little,
rich and poor, Montevidw's one hundred

Joined a irty nt the "mole," nnd w as rowed

I stepped ou board w hen bet-aid:
"Jocelyn and his friend are in the ward

Before we had gone teu paces there was a
cry from the water. A pleasure boat bad
lieen capsized by a sudden flaw of wind.
Help was close at hand, but there was bo
much of it. Three persons were seen cling
ing to the boat. Then the waves parted, and
a woman's head and arm became visible. She
clutched wildly at the air and sank again.
At that moment 1 missed Lieut. S , who
bad been wntchiug the scene " ith keenest In
terest. He had swung himself dowu the side
of the Narcissus ami was swimming toward
the unfortunates. But another and more
powerful stroke was In advance of the In

Again the woman's head showed above the
water's surface, I turned away my face. It
was La Serena, drowuing, within reach of
many arms of steel.
Hal a cheer I Another, and yet another!
The foremost swimmer, they say, has caught
her, and bears her sturdily up. I cannot see
distinctly, for tears have welled to my eyes.
Now the mist is goue. Surely I kuow that
proud bead, that smile so winning. Yes, it
is George Hamilton, and La Serena receives
back ber life from him she gave it to in those
first happy days in Paris.
There wasn't a very successful New Tear's
banquet in the ward room of the Narcissus,
but every body seemed satisfied. No lives had
been lost. There was a daring deed to be
talked about by gallaut men. Lieut. 8
had a fresh laurel. The surgeon w as delighted
with the unabridged history of "Mr. George,"
and voted him the noblest Yankee he bad
ever met saying to me decorously;
"Its the old blood, you know, aud you fel
