needed as a gentle laxative;
three to lour act as a cathar

Beiore whicli a sentinel walked." AlF S
official apiared from below, announc jg
that a lady, Miss Mabel Chalmer, wislied
to (tee him. He remembered the name
not a common one vividly. It was that
of an attractive girl he had often met at a
friend's hou.se at home. She had an elder
married sUtor living in New York, whom
she had visited several times, and she was
a sial favorite there. Lovell and she Lad
been very good friends; had had, indeed,
various sentimental passages, which meant
nothing, as she was considered a desperate
flirt and Northrop was not susceptible.
The winter previous to the firing on Sum
ter they had actually quarreled because
she was so violently southern and he so
ardently northern. Could the caller possi
bly be Bbet
Lovell found that it was she, and that
she greeted him cordially. She was living
in Richmond; her father, brother, all her
surviving kinsmen were in the Confeder
ate army, and, through their influence,
she had been allowed to visit t he colonel
as a former friend. They were allowed to
converse freely and alone. She told him
that he would certainly be executed, though
she believii him innocent, unless he could
escape. "That is impossible," he replied;
'I have thought it all over. I am con
She had thought it over, too, and she had
formed a plan, which was to bribe the sen
tinel stationed before the cell, descend the
stairs quietly, and then take his chances
with the guards in front of the prison. "I
have no money," he said. "But I have,"
she answered, and offered him a roll of
bills. She added that she knew a liou.se in
town, giving the name and exact place it
was the house of a Unionist where he
could go and lie concealed unt il the excite
ment over his escape had subsided.
lie did not understand this, lie could
hardly trust her, her who was so intensely
southern in her sympathies, so fiercely in
imical to the north. Jle frankly said as
much. "Why should you," he asked, "do
all this for me? Why should you turn
against your dearest friends to help me,
your enemy? Why should I believe you?"
fehe tried in vain toconvince him. He had
refused Tier aid absolutely, when, in a par-oxj-sin
of feeling, covering her face with
her hands and bursting into tears, she
cried, in a low, passionate tone, "Why
should I do this? liecause I love you!"
Covering her face with her veil, and
pointing to the roll of bills she had xiirown
on the tloor, she walked rapidly out. This
he secun-d a niomeut lefore the official en
tered to conduct him back to his cage.
He no longer doubted Mabel darling
Mabel he called her in his own mind. Her
last words hail reveaed everything, like a
Hash of lightning, and his heart responded
completely to hers. His life was now trebry
precious. He owed it to her to save him
self if possible. Wps it possible? He
would do his utmost.
He succeeded in bribing the sentinel. He
was walking out of the main entrance of
the castle on a lowering, stormy night,
w hen the guard halted him. He ran at
once:ie heard liehind him the crack of the
musKcrs, ami ueard also the whiz of the
balls; but they struck him not, shielded by
the enveloping darkness. He sought the
place of refuse: he found it, and in a fort
night he was with his comrades in the
Army of the Potomac. The following April
he was among the first to enter Richmond.
Everything had gone well with him. He
teemed to have leen protected by the
providence of woman's love.
The story is told. But for the benefit of
those who insist on demanding the super
'fluous, I may add that 1 dined only last
week with Mr. and Mrs. Northrop Eovtll
(she is no less interesting now than she
was as Mabel Chajmer) and Jjjeir two chil
dren, a son of nineteen "and a married
daughter of twenty-three. It was a pleas
ant social occasion. We recited many rem

"But, mv child, vou shouldn't dc
