THE I J AST CONTEST.
A soldier, who had won imperisha
ble fanni on tho battlo-iiolds of his
country was confronted bj a gaunt
stranger elad all iu black aud wcariug
an impenetrable mask.
"Who aro you that you dare to
block my way?" dumamlod tho sol
Then tho stranger throw asido bis

'dlavo you como for me?" asked tho
soldier. "If so, I will not go with you;
so go your way alone."
But Death hold out bia bony baud
and beckoned lo tho soldier.
"No," cried tho soldier, resolutely;
"my limo is not como. Soo, boro aro
the histories I am writing-no hand
but mino can finish thom-I will go
when they are dono."
"I have biddon by your sido day and
night," said Death; "I havo hovered
about you on a hundred battle-fields,
but no sight of mo could chill your
heart till now, and now I hold you in
my power. Come!"
And with thuso words Death soi/.od
upon tho soldier and strove to boar
him heuce. but tho soldier struggled so
desperately that ho prevailed against
Death, and tho strango phantom do
purlod alone. Then when ho had geno
thu soldier found upon his throat tho
imprint of Death's cruel lingers-so
iierco had boon tho struggle. And
nothing could wash them away, for
they were disease, lingering, agonizing,
fatal disease. Hut with quiet valor ibo
soldier relurnod to his histories, and
for many days thoroaftor ho toiled up
on them as tho last and best work of
his nobln life.
.dlow thin and palo tho soldior is
gelling," said tho people. "His hair
is whitening and his oyes uro woary.
Ile should not have undertaken tho
histories-the labor is killing him."
They did not know of this strugglo
with Death, nor had they soon tho
marks upon the soldier's throat, lint
the physicians who carno to him and
saw tho marks of Death's cruel lingers,
shook llicir heads and said the soldier
OOldd not livo to completo his work
upon which Iiis whole heart was set.
And tho soldier knew it, too, and
many a timo he paused in his writing
and laid his pun aside and bowod his
head inion his hands, and strove for
consolation in the thought of tho groat
fame he had already won. So whoa
Death carno a second time ho found

of batllo, the sweets of a quiot homo

other words but those, and tho soldier
struggled to his foot, and strotched
forth his hands and called to Doath,
and hoaring him caMIng, Death caine

"I havo niado my choico," said tho

"No, not thom," said tho soldior,

Thou Death's hldoous aspect was
changed; his storn features relaxed and
a look of pity oamo upon them. And
Donih said, "It shall bo so," and say
ing this he wont his way.

many a time while his rough hands

tho old comrade told of this hattie and
of that, mid hew such ti victory was
won and how such a city was taken.
But tho soldier's oars heard no sound
of battle now, and his oyes could seo
DO flash of sabre or smoko of war.
?So tho people carno and spoke words
of veneration and lovo and hope, and
so with quiet fortitude, btu willi a hun

his little girl.
Sho carno across tho broad, to.opcst

pathway, and tho waves were very

"Spocd on, ? ship," till tit last thu ship
was como to port and the littlo girl
was claspod in thu soldier's arms..
Thou for a season tho soldier seemed
quito himself again, and peoplu said:
"Ho will livo," and thou prayed that
ho might. But their hopes and pray
ers woro vain. Death's seal was on tho
soldier and thcro was no release.
Tho last days of thu soldier's lifu
woro tho most beautiful of all-but
what a mockery of ambition and fame,
and all tho grand pretentious things of
lifo they were! Thoy were tho triumph
of a human heart, and what is botter or
purer or sweeter than that?
No thought of tho hundred battle
fields upon which his valor had .shown
conspicuous carno to tho soldier now -
nor tho ocho of his otornal fame-nor
o von yet tho murmurs of a sorrowing
people. Nollie was by his side, and his
hungry, fainting heart fed on her dear
love aud his soul went back with bol
to tho years bing agonc.
Away beyond tho wostorn horizon
upon tho prairie stands a little homo
over which tho vines trail. All about
it is tho tall, waving grass, and over
yondor is tho swalo with a logion of
chattering black-birds porched on its
swaying roods and rushes. bright
wild Howers bloom on overy side, tho
quail whistlos on tho pasture fence, and
from his home in (ho chimney corner
tho cricket begins to chirrup au echo
to tho lonely bird's call. In this little
Eraine homo wo soo a man holding on
is kneo a little, girl, who is telling him
of her play as ho smooths hor fair curls
or strokes her tiny velvet hands; or
perhaps she is singing him ouc of her
baby songs, or asking him strange
questions of tho groat wide world that
is now to her; or perhaps ho binds the
wild llowors sho has brought into a lit

or-but wo seo it all, and so, too, does
tho soldior, and so does Nollio, and so

And so at last whon Death carno and
tho soldier foll asleep forever. Nollie,
his little girl, was holding his hands
and whispering to him of thoso days.
Hors woro tho last words he hoard, and
by tho smile that rostod on his faco
whoa ho was dead you might havo

An excellent opportunity of observ
ing tho aerial means of propulsion in
the Hying fish was a horded mo during
a six days' oalm lately whon crossing
tho Bay of Bongnl. I watched day by
day nomo bund reds rise under tho bows
of tho ship. The water surface was a
glassy calm. As oach tish roso it
spread its wings at onco, apparent i v
boating the surfaco with thom two or
fhroo strokes boforo thoy steadied out.
I say apparently, for it was not a deb
ilito boat so much as a struggle to rise.
The tall which, of courso under wator
was in rapid motion to escapo from the
ship, now gavo ton or a dozen rapid
beats, whioh could bo countod by tho
ripples on tho still surface, and tho tish
was off in aerial flight.
As oaoh fish lost tho hnpotus of tho
first riso, which generally happened at
about forty yards, tho binoculars show
ed us the anal fins, which had till now
beon fully extended, drooping to feel
tho wator. As soon aa tho surface was
felt the tail was introduced and fivo or
six smart strokes, also indicated by
ripplos, brought tho impetus np again
and carried the fish about anothor
thirty yards, when another drop sont
it on again, and so forth, aorao of tho
older fish travoling in this way 400 to
600 yards. Tho younger fish fre.quont
ly fell awkwardly In this attempt to
regain impetus. Whon waves aro
running it requires a clover tish to
gain impetus by a few judicious strokes
on the orest of a wave, and many a
fish tumbles over In tho attempt.
I once saw a fish rise oloso to the
ship's quarter, and lt flow parallel with
the ship, pursued below by a dolphin
or bonita. Th? latter followed every
sway of the flab, keeping almost un

"that artists as a class aro thu most

for a customer a wealthy gentleman,
and had just, about persuaded him to
buy a roally good landscape, by a lead
ing artist; price, $700. In fact, tho
gentleman had virtually bought tho
picture. Ho was just beginning to
speak about making a payment whe.i
an artist, a mutual acquaintance,
strolled into tho room. Now tho gen
tleman wanted confirmation of his
judgment, as people ofton do, and so
appealed to tho artist coming in, and
asked his opinion of tho purchase. Tho
artist fell a twinge of jealousy. Ho
balanced himself first on hie heels and
thou on his toes, m ado opera-glasses
out of his hands, and squinted, at thc
picturo from ovcry possible point of
. view. Finally ho spoke, 'll is a line

trees, tho sky, tho water. In fact, it's
au excellent work of art. Still, if you
roally want my opinion, I'll tell you
something. You sou thal small figure

and besides 1 had had experience. Tho
artist criticising tho picturo appeared

given tho work Its due praise, to begin

never looked al il again that il did nol

"No, il does not. And that is why

and is happy and sat is nod over his
