ALPA AND OMEGA
BY MRS. C. LADD.
I with rotation sprang to life,
At the first words the Almight:
At his word, at his command,
The whole creation yoke.
God said, "Let there be light;"
Light came, it lit up every sun;
They then with all their plai.ets
Began their course to run.
Millions of suns are still beyond,
Your power of vision here to see;
I am with all, I d well in all,
b fistance nor space is ought to tre,
I am everywhere.
Itaces after racs casme,
.I saw them fade away ;
From whence life comes or w!.ete :
God alone can say.
No race has ever dwelt on earth,
No matter in what clime or place;.
No race that's gona tsr living now,
Their otigin c.,uld trace.
I watched the wars an~d struggleQ,
S'aw great empires rise and fall,
Others rose to fill their place,
I was by and saw it all.
Natrire is always ch-mtging, .
-Very sure but very slow ; . A
Since creation I have watched, -
' Those changes come and go.
I watched the poles when changing,
I saw the great Antarctic rise,
Then saw it lay in all-its beauty,
Benfeath the southern skies.
Nearly all the land far north,
Was covered by the briny walr,
For ages, ind ages then it Jay,
Beneath its wat fr grave.
I ltchedThep61es change back again
The .ice-kipg went to raid;
Binading thegreat:Antarctic round,
*With.its strong icy chiain: .
The w'ave receited froni the north,
frh'en l the lands we now see, lay
Was cloathed again int beauty,
iJy -the heat and light of day.
Cyanges must-go on.
As if by magic, races came,.
iluindadds found in eyer'y place,
Buit different from' each other,
.ln'color, form and face.
Stauges for power -again began,
The strongest won the day ;
By might., not right, all nations rule
~The weaker must give way...
What matter how much blood is shed
Battfes mdst'be fdadht and won;
What mattet for'the'deaa' and dying
Bleahiunb hedul ,owa .
No kindred ties or human life,
Stand in the conqitierors way,
Ie crushes all beneatb his-feet,
Unt hitholds tJre swa.
Peisafter periods csie,
Cities and empires rose and fell;.
Of all thats buried in the pist,
I,:alone can tell..
'lIam every where;
I am in the deepest dungeon,
I hear the smothered cry,
I see the torture when applied,
I. hear the dying cry.
No crime has been committed,
Beneath God's-gloriouns sun,
But I was always by
And saw, the deed when done.
I've seen the dearest ties of life
Snapped, seen hearts when broken
Antd not oa word was ever said,
But what Ibeard it spoken.
I was by.
I'm in the stately palace,
IPm in the lowly huts as well;
im roaming on the modintairrtops,
I'm in the prisoners cell.
P'm in the stately churches,
WVhere the golden call sits h'gh;
I hear the splenditt music,
That only gold can buy.
On the air it may arise;
Bnt will float forever around the
Lips service cannet reach the skies
I ;m in the lowly churches,
I hear the hymns and prayers ko
That rising from those ki.celing there,
At their maker's feet
0, God! 0, God! "Thy will be done."
Out on the air is borne,
Scarcely was it uttered,
Before it reached God's throne.
I am in the sumptious banquet hall,
See all that wealth can spread,
At the same time I am passing,
Where the starving cry for bread
Such is life.
Woman is now our greatet power,
Her power is felt. in every land;
Evil as well as all that's good,
You can trace it to her hand.
She has the training of all the young,
There lies her power, felt, not seen,
Thus she controls all nations now,
Ruled all that's ever been.
Knowledge, wisdow /human skill,
Has almost reached its height;
This glorious period (hen must sink,
Into oblivious night.
Generations come and go,
All that lives nust soon d.c.ty;
New life comes to fill the p!ace,
As the old life dies away.
Buried in the past.
Motion and rotation gt,
I go with both unsecn,
There's nothing new be.cath God's
Noth'ng now, but what has been,
Will be again.
I;vas the first, I %% ill be the la;t,
Be everywhere 'till chaange is o'er;
I will live until God's voice sa% s,
"Time shall be no more."

THE STRANGE STORY
BY 1. RIDER HAGGARD,
AUTHoR OF "SIHE," "KING SOLoMON'$
Mums," "Jss," "CLEo
A NEW AFRICAN ROMANCF.
"In'dba-zimbi," I said, "we can never
cross this if we take six days."
"As you will, Macumazahn," he an
swered; "but I tell you that there"
and he pointed to the peak-"there the
white man lives. Turn which way you
like, but if you turn you will p:-iah."
I reflected for a moment. Our caso
was, humanly speaking, almost hopeless.
It mattered little which way we went.
We were alone, almost without food,
with no means of transport, and a child
to carry. As well peris-h in the sandy
waste as on the rolling veldt or among
the trees of the hill--side. Providence
alone could savo us, and we must trust to
"Come on," I said, lifting. Tota on to
my back, for she was already tired. "All
roads lead to rest."
How am I to describe the misery of the
next four days? How am I to tell how
we stumbled on through that awful des
ert, almost wiihout food, and quite with
out water, for,! there were no streans,
and we saw no springs? We soon found
how the case was, and saved almost all
the.water in our bo'ttles for the child.
To look baclkon itis like. a nightmare.
I can scarcely h ear to dwell on it. Day
after day, by turns carrying the child
through -the heavy- sand; .night after
night-lyi-ng down in-the scrub, chewing
the leaves and licking such dew as there
was from the scanty grass! Not a spring,
not a pool, not a head of game! It was
the third night; we were nearly mad
with thirst. Tota was . in a, comatose
condition. Indaba-zimbi still had a lit
tle water in his bottle-perhaps a wine
glassful. We moistened her lips and
our blackened tongues with it. Thon
we gave the rest to the child. It revived
her. She awoke from her swoon to sink
See, the dawn was breaking. The
hills were not more than eight miles or
so away now, and they were grcen.
There must be water there.
"Come," I said.
Indaba-zimbi lifted Tota into the
kind of sling that we had made out of
the blanket in which to carry her on
our backs, and we staggered on for an
hour through the sand. She woke cry
ing for water, and, alas! we had none to
give her; our tongues were hanging
from our lips, we could scarcely speak.
We- rested awhile, and Tota merci
fully swooned - away. Then Indaba
zimbi took- her. Though he was so
thin the old man's strength was won
Another hour; the slope of the great
peak could not be more than two miles
away now. A couple of hundred yards
off grew a large, baobale tree. Could
we reach its shade! We had done half
the distance when Indaba-zimbi fell
from exhaustion. We were now so
weak that neither of us could lift the
child on to our backs. We each took
one of her hands and dragged her
along the road. Fifty yards-they
seemed to be fifty miles. Ah! the tree
was reached at last; compared with the
heat outside, the shade of its dense
foliage seemed like the dusk and cool of
a vault. I remember thinking that it
was a good place to die in. Then I re
member no more..
I woke with a feeling as though the
blessed rain were falling on my face
and head. Slowly and with great dif
ficulty I opened my eyes, then shut
them again, having seen a vision. For
a space I lay thus, while the rain con
tinued to fall; I saw now that I must be
asleep, or off my head with thirst or
fever. If I were not off my head how
came I to imagine that a lovely, dark
eyed girl was bending over me sprink
ling water on my face? A white girl,
too, not a Kaffir woman. However, the
dream went on.
"Hendrika," said a voice In English,
the sweetest voice that I had ever heard;
somehow it reminded me of wind whis
pering in the trees at night. "Hendrika,.
I fear he dies;:there is-a flask of brandy
in my saddle-bag; get it."
"Ah! ah!" grunted a harsh voice in
answer; "let him die, Miss St.er'a. He
will bring you bad luck-let h r die I
say." I felt a movement of a r .bove
me as though the woman of .i& vidion
turned swiftly, and once again I opene
my eyes. She had risen, this dream
woman. Now I saw that she - .-as 11
and graceful as a reed. She was ngrv,
too; her dark eyes flashed; and she
pointed with her hand at a female who
stood before her, dressed in nondescri t
kind of clothes such as might be worn
by either a man or a woman. Th"
woman was young, of white blood, ye y
short, with bowed legs and enormoi.s
shoulders. In face she w as not bad
"TEnE Is WAT~f :R YOLTn owN BOTTLE."
looking, but the brow receded, the chin
and ears were promihent--in short, she
eminded me of nothing so much as a
-ery handsome -monkey. She might
aave been the missing link.
The lady was pointing at her with her
band. "How dare you?" she said. "Are
you going to disobey me again? Have
you forgotten what I told you, Babyan
"Ah! ah!" grunted the woman, who
seemed literally to curl and shrivel up
beneath her anger. "Don't be angry
with me, Miss Stella, because I can't
bear It. I only said it because it was
true. I will fetch the brandy."
,Then, dream or no dream, I deter
"Not brandy," I gasped iin English as
well as my swollen tongue would allow;
'give me water."
"Ah, he lives!" cried the beautiful
Headache stopped in 20 minutes by Dr,
girl, "and he talks English. See, Sir,
here is water in your own bottle; you
were quite close to a spring the other
side of the tree."
I struggled to a sitting position, lifted
the bottle to my-- lips and drained it.
Oh! that drink of cool, pure water!
never had I tasted any thing so delicious.
At the first gulp I felt life flow back
into me. But, wisely enough, she would
not let me have much. "No more! no
more!" she said, and dragged the bottle
from me almost by force.
"The child," I said - "is the child
"I do not know yet," she answered.
"We have only just found you, and I
tried to revive you first."
I turned and crept to where Tota lay
by the side of Indaba-zimbi. It was im
possible to say if they were dead or
swooning. The lady. sprinkled Tota's
face with the water, which I watched
greedily, for my thirst was still awful,
while the woman Hendrika did the same
office for Indaba-zimbi. Presently, to
my vast delight, Tota opened her eyes
and tried to cry, but could not, poor
little thing, because her tongue and
lips were so swollen. But the lady got
some water into her mouth, and, as in
my case, the effect was magical. We
allowed her to drink about a quarter of
a pint, and no more, though she cried
bitterly for it. Just then old Indaba
zimbi came to with a groan. ie opened
his eyes, glanced around, and took in
- "What did I tell you, Macumazahn?"
and he seized the bottle and took a long
pull at it.
Meanwhile I sat with my back against
the trunk of the great tree and tried to
realize the situation. Looking to my
left I saw two good horses-one bare
backed and one with a rude lady's sadIle
on it. By the side of the horses were
two dogs, of a stout greyhound breed,
that sat watching us, and near the dogs
lay a dead Airlie buck, which they had
eviden'ly been coursing.
"Hendrika," said the lady, presently,
"they must not eat meat just yet. Go
and look up the tree and see if there is
any ripe fruit on it."
The woman ran swiftly into the plain
and obeyed. Presently she returned.
"I see some ripe fruit," she said, "but it
is high, quite at the top."
"Fetch it," said the lady.
"Easier said than done," I thought to
myself; but I was much mistaken. Sud
denly the woman bounded at least three
feet into the air and caught one of the
spreading boughs in her large flat hands
-a swing that would have filled an
acrobat with envy-and she was on it.
"Now there is an end," I thought
again, for the next bough was beyond
her reach. But again I was mistaken.
She stood up on the bough, gripping it
with her bare feet, and once more
sprang at the one above, caught it and
swung herself into it..
I suppose that thc-lady saw my expres
sion of astonishment. "Do not wonder,
sir," she said. "Hendrika is not like
other people. She will not fall."
I made no answer, but watched the
progress of this extraordinary person
with the most breathless interest. On
she went, swinging herself from bough
to bough, and running along them like
a monkey. At last she got to the top
and began to swarm along a thin branch
towards the ripe fruit. When she was
near enough she 'shook the branch vio
lently. There was a crack-a crash-It
broke. I shut my eyes, expecting to see
hei- crushed on the ground before mc.
"Don't be afraid," said the lady again,
laughing gently. "Look, she is quite
I looked, and so she was. She had
caught a bough as she fell, clung to it,
and was now calmly dropping to another.
Old Indaba-zimbi had also watched this
perfor::ance with interest, but it did
not seem to astonish him over much.
"Br.boon-woman,'' he said, as though
su-h peop1,i were common, and then
turned hi. attention to soothing Tota,
who was :noa:.iag for more water.
Mean- ;hile He~diika came down the
tree -.v/h e.dra..rdiaary rapidity, and
sw .nl"nT ~.: >.e hand f:om a bough,
aropped abou+~ tu iett to the ground.
In ano her tro mia.utes we were all
tireA sucking t'io pulpy fruit. In an
ord nary wa: we sh'o'uld have found it
'as e ess en ud. ab it was I thought it
w s the mos* C.liicus thing I had ever
t.ste'.. AL'er +u-ce days spent without
food o- we:er .n 'he desert one is not

the .'r-i ie laf.: of my vision set her
ccmpanion to woik to partially flay the
oribe which her @gs had killed, and
busi " herself making a fire of fallen
boug' s. As soon as it burned brigh:1y
she to '. strips of the oribe flesh, toasted
them, and gave them to us on leaves.
We ate, and now were allowed a little
m.ore water. After that she took little
Tote. to the spring and washed her.
which she sadly needed, poor child!
Next came our turn to wash, and oh! the
joy of i+!
I came back to the tree, walking pain
fully, indeed, but a changed man. There
sat the beautiful girl with Tota on her
knees. She was lulling her to sleep.
and held up her finger to me enjoining
silence. At last the child went off into
a sound natui'al slumber-an example
that 1 should have been glad to follow
had it not been for my burning curios
ity. Then I spoke.
"May I ask what your name is?" I
"Stella," she answered.
"Stella what?" I said.
"Stella nothing," she answered, in
some pique. "Stella is my name; it is
short and easy to remember, at any rate.
My father's name is Thomas, and we
live up there," and she pointed round
the base of the great peak. I looked at
her astonished. "Have you lived there
long?" I asked.
"Ever since I was seven years old.
We came there in a wagon. Before that
we came from England-from Oxford
shire; I can show you the place on the
big map. It is called Garsingham."
Again I thought I must be dreaming.
"Do you know, Miss Stella," I said, "it
is very strange-so strange that it al
most seems as though it could not be
true-but I also came from Garsingham,
in Oxfordshire, many years ago."
She started up. "Are you an Enhglish
gentleman?" she said. "Ah, i have 'd

5ince we lived here-no white people at

"My name is Allan Quatermnain," I

red mark upon her neck-"here is the
scar of the burn."
"I remember it." I said. "You were

I who put out the fire; my wrists were
burnt in doing so."
Then for a space we sat silent, looking
at each other, while Stella slowly
fanned herself wit h her wide felt hat,

very bad and Ihbad a great deal of stomach trouble, and suffered untold agony.
I was constipated nearly all of the time. I was thin in flesh and so much re
duced in n~ryd'force that I had little life and no ambition.
"Six weeks ago I began taking Dr. Miles' remedies and have taken nearly
two bottles of the' Restorati';e Nervine and three boxcs of the Nerve 'ad
Liver Pills. The result is truly marvelous. I feel !Uka a boy again. I have
gained eighteen pounds and have more'strength and nerve force than I have
had at iny tinie in the past seven years.
"Last evening at the close of servidc,"I pnblicly stated to the large audi
ence the facts of the marvelous benefits that I had received fromjyour reme~
dies, how they had given me strength and hope and vitality to better go on
with the work of the Master. May the Dear Master abundantly bless you."
,Tanuary 30, 1895, he again writes:
"Prior to last October, when I began the use of your valuable remedies,
I was almost an entire mental and physical wreck, but now, thanks to Dr.9
Miles for his Restorative Nervine and Nerve and Liver Pills, I ama healthy
and exceedinglyhappy man. Before I began the use of your medicines I very
seriously contemplated resigning my position as pastor of the First U..4
church of this city, but now with restored health I can remain, to the great
jy of my people.
"After two months revival work, two services each day, I am still strong
and well. May the dear Master of life abundantly bless you."
