CALLED BACK,
For two weeks I Itali boou in a cre?lo
colony. Fifty dollars a month I was
offered for my services, timi ?is 1 ?md
not an acquaintance in tho country I
gladly a coop ted. That would bring
ino food, clot hing, and shelter-- moro
than 1 had boon nblo to obtain in dour
Frauco. My two pupils, M. Kahui as
sured ino. were well-behaved children.
Tho girl was just IA. already n young
lady, and tho 10-yoar boy was equally
apt at study. Af?er till, I was only re
quired to ttlvu itvo hours a day to
teaching. 1 he tesl of my limo was ul
toguthor my own, to he devoted cithor
to work or sleep ns 1 pleased.
It was a threatening day in April
well I remember it-when 1 started out
lo walk io tho great house whore I was
to earn my bread. As 1 walked on I
began lo dream. What future did tliis
now land hold ill reservo f-jr mc? 1
had not como lo it willi any Idea of
making n fortune-although a .young
man of 'J.R?. I had ttcqltirud otioilgh com
mon sense, lo save ino from such illus
ions-hut only to earn a good living
niul lay up enough to enable me, when
an old man, to return to Franco and
sleep nt last under tho shadow of my
own village spire. S ion 1 caught sight
of tho lofty chimney of tho sugar mill
-Hu n tho house iiself, buried in a
thick glove of mango trees, and, as I
foared being Into, 1 rjuickenod my step.
Under tho veranda, already crowded,
1 saw peoplo rushing bael; amt forward
-running, and no one noticed mo as 1
nsoouded the front, steps oxcopt a big,
fal negress, crouching nt thu entrance,
who sobbed and cr.cd with renewed
despair nt my coming. 'I bero on thu
Boin, at full Icugtll, lay a young girl
almost a child. lier long, bright hair,
ali streaming with water, fell over tho
back of the .sola, and had dripped upon
tho veranda until a litllo pooi hud
f. .med upon tho tings, Sho was winier
than a piece ol maride; tho violets of
death were on her compressed lips; her
lifeless arms lay rigidly straight by her
side; and M. Kabul, on Ids kneos be
side her, was kissing ono of her hands.
"Drowned, my dear .--ir, she got
drowned," said n good old lady of
about CO years of age, who carno tomo
holdiug out her baud in tho friendliest
manner imaginable. "Hut you havo
walked hore," shu continued; "you
must bo tired. Of course you will tuko
somothiug. Myrtlll"
"Mamma! Oil, mamma!" exclaim
ed AI. Rabllt, raising his hoad. "You
sec," ho said to mo, with a sob, "you
seo sho was out bathing; tho river sud
denly roso, and-"
His heail fell forward again over tho
litllo while hand to which his lips
clung.
"Myrtlll My nil!" again cried tho
good lady, "bring a glass of .Madeira
to tho gentleman. Or por haps you
WOttlU preter something oise?"
1 questioned tho family. Tho girl
had not been twenty minutes undor
water. And yet they had done noth
ing.-hud not even tried to do nay?
. thing.
I gavo my orders brtolly- thoy woro
obeyed?
Half an hour pns&od. Wbatl was
not that a Hush wo saw mounting to
tho colorless chocks. Oh, how forvont
a prayer ho uttered that moniont to
tho good Cod! And lt seemed to mo
tito arm I hold had become loss frigid.
At that moment tv horseman carno up
nt foll gallop.
"Myrtil! Myrlil! tako tho doctor's
I >rso to tho stablol" cried tho good
'?.dy, dosconding tho stops to moot tho
Physician. "Ah, doctor. I know itl
Your powdor could not do mo any
f'ood. Tho whola night, doctor, I was
n pnlu. Ahl bow badly I slept!"
Tho doctor carno directly to us.
"Good! young man!-vury good, in
doodt That is just what should havo
boon dono."
"Como, como!" ho crlod in a joyous
tono, aftor a low moments had palled,
"Wo aro all right now-wo shall got
off with nothing worso thau a fright!
Why, you old coward, havo I not al
road y told you soP Hore! lot mo soo
a happlor fnco on you?" And ho gave
M. Rabut a vigorous slap on the
shoulder.
Thon, suddonly turning to mo, ho
asked:
"But you-whoro aro you fromr 1
don't remomber?cvor seeing yon hore
hofore." .
"I carno from Brittany, dootor, by
way of Paris and Port Louis."
"Look! - look!" - ho had alroady
turned his back upon nm "*ho is open

M. Rebut Involuntarily solrxnl my
hand, and dragged ino to tho sofa.
8ho oponed hot' eyes. Thoy wore

"Helene! roy own Helonol" murmur
ed tho poor father, stooping to kiss her
forehead.
"Contle! youl" oxclainod the doo

M. Rabat drew baok, without lotting

"Myrtlll Myriill-well, how about

"Ma fol! Pm ready for Ul" nvlod the
dootor. "That gallop gavo mo a fero

Ho brought mo closo to her bod. Hor

"This is ho,-my Holono; if it hadn't

"Don't trot any moro, papa. I am
only sorry about my lockot. Do you
think they will over bo ablo to lind

Tho lockot contained her* mother's
huir.
ll WM barely daylight whoa I roach
ed tho river. Tho negro who had taken
hor out of tho water had shown me tho
evening before tho preciso spot whore
tho current hud carried hor away, and
abo tho placo whero ho had found her
-about Hf ty yard? further down, lt
was a grout narrow basin, shut in by
great jumroscs, whoso tufted bruncbos
mot above and stretched from ono
batik to tho othor. Tho palo light,
dickering through tho loaves, made
gleams hore and there upon tho water
(tko tim reflection of moiton lead; be
yond tho darkness wus completo; it
looked perfectly black there.
I dived amt brought up throe Hat
pebbles! lint breakfast would not bo
ready until 10 o'clock; 1 had plonly of

by 8 o'clock tho bottom of the basin
hud no mysteries for ino. Thoro was
nol a singlo oabot-lish that 1 hud not
disturbed beneath bia rock-not a sin

to crawl backward into his hole. But
tho locket wus not thoro-accordingly
it must bo further down. 1 loft tho
basin and followed tho courso of tho
stream-interrogating all tho roots, ex
ploring all tho boulders, questioning
every tuft of grass. 1 was about to
pan on when I saw a liltlo serpent,
liko a thin silk string caught upon tho
root of a wild strawberry plant, wrig
gling in tho current. I seized it-it
Was tho loe <et.
Siie would not como down to break
fast, but M. Rabtlt told mo she would
coi lain ly como down lo dinner. She
was still a Halo wouk, but that wa'
all.
Mun is u selfish creature; tho me
dallion remained in my pocket.
Whilo they woro laying thotabloth.it
evening 1 stole into tho dining-room.
When her father had led her to hor
seat, and she unfohlod her napkin, sho
found a little box in it.
"What is this? Another of your nt
tempts to spoil me, papa?"
Hut tho astonished look of M. Kabut
must iiavo convinced her moro than
his denial.
Silo opened tho little l)OX.
"My lock el! niv locket!" sho cried,
putting it to her fips and kissing it over
timi ovor again. 1 watched overy kiss
-I looked at her out of tho cornor of
my oyo. Fiually her oyos mot my own
-she understood, lint tho littlo mys
terious beauty didn't even say, "Thank
you."
And tho long and short of it is, dear
sir, that I never gave Helene, who be

A Reminiscence or ('hurley Backus.
Chanco placed Arthur Moreland in
the noxt scat to mo at tho "Kvangol
ino" initial Thursday night. Ho lias
aged much and wears a mournful ex
pression, ill becoming a fuco that was
so long wreathed with smilos, whon,
with u burnt-cork mask, ho pivotod
tho San Fraucisco minstrel somi-circlo.
Tho dissolution of that admirable or
ganization still preys upon his mind,
and while tho drummer was testing his
hoads botween acts Arthur harped on
his favorito subject. He told mo a
story about Charley Backus which I
think lins novor boforo appcarod in
type. It was whon Peter Gilsoy was
alive. Backus and Gilsoy sat in tho
Gilsoy houso cafe, lt was bitter cold
outside, tho mercury just buttering tho
/.ero mark. Tho conversation turned
upon tho stern dictates of fashion in
regard to malo attire. .
"1 don't euro what I wear as long as
I'm comfortable," remarked the como
dian.
"Oh, yos, you do." patronizingly
in , isled tho venerable I'rt er. ' "Von
wouldn't daru go out in tho street in
this kimi of weather with a summer
suit ou."
"That's just what I'll do for a bottlo
of wino."
"Muko it a cuso. "
..Call it a car-loud if you want," re
joined backus.
Tho wager was made, and Backus
disappeared. An hour biter be walked
?ute tue cato uttirod in a white dannel
shirt, straw hat with bluo band, corn
colored kids, Oxford lies, carrying a
bamboo walking stick, and wearing a
rose in his bultou-holo. Tho lunns of
tho wager required that ho should
walk lil) WU Broadway to Stewart's
storo and return. Ho ourriod it out to
tho letter, leisurely sauntering down
tho street, swinging his oaue, and ap
pouring ns comfortable as though ne
was on tho shady sido of tho street on
a July day. Of courso ho was tho cyn
osure of all oyos, but ho was accus
tomed to that, ead nppoarod uot the
least ncrturbed. Tho wino was won,
mid Gilsoy determined to have revenge
lu paying it. That evening, wheo
Backus' bud responded to tho fourth
oncore on one of his topical songs, he
was surprised to soo n box of M um m's
extra shovod over the footlights. Tho
andiene.) howled anti demanded a fifth
verse, lt wus followed by another
ease, and so it continued until twouty
boxes of wino had boon piled upon the
stage before him, entirely concealing
bis rotund form- Auburn Dispatch.

now and then makes very lon . s ri ors.
It is in this way thal thu course of or
ganic dovcloptuout is marked here and
there by nicinornblo epochs, which
seem to open new chapters iu the his
tory of tito universe. There was such au
opoch when tho common nncostor of
nscidiun and amphioxus tirst showed
rudimentary traces of a vertebral col
umn. There was such an epoch when
the air-bladder of carly amphibians be
gan to do duly as n lung. Greatest of
all. since tho epoch, slid hidden from
our ken, when organic lifo began upon
the surface of tho globe, was tile birth
of that new era when, through ti won
drous change in Ibu direction of the
working of natural selection, Humani
ty appeared'upon tho scene. Itt tho
career of tho human rnco wo can like
wise point to periods in which il has
become apparent that tin immense
strido was taken. Such a period marks
tho dawuing of human history, when
alter countlessjigos of desultory tribal
warfare, men succeeded in uniting into
comparatively stablo political societies,
und through tho medium of writlon
lungungo bogan handing down to pos
terity the record of their thoughts and
doods. Since that morning twilight of
history there has beou no era80 strong
ly marked, no chango so switt or so
far-reaching in the conditions of hu
man life, as that which began with tho
groat mar?timo discoveries of thu fif
teenth century, and is approaching its
culmination to-day. lu its carder
stages this modern era was signalized
by sporadic achievements of Hie human
intellect, great in themselves, and lead
ing to such stupendous rusiltta as tito
boldest dared not dream of. SUCH
achievements were thu invention of
priming, tho toloscope and microscope
tho geometry of Descartes, tho astron
omy of Newton, ibo physics of Huy
fliens, tho physiology ot Harvey.
Ian's senses were tims indefinitely en
larged as his moans of registration
were porfected; ho became capable o?
extonding physical inference? from tho
oarth to tho beavens; and ho made his
tir.-.t acquaintance with that luiuinjfor
ons other which was by and by lo re
veal the inlim.de structure ot maller
in regions tar beyond tho power of tho
microscope lo penetrate.
lt is only with the present century
that the vastness of the changes thus
beginning to bo wrought has become
apparent. Tho scientific ticiiievemouts
ot the human intellect no h.tiger occur
sporadically; they follow one upon an
other, like tho organized ami systemat
ic conquest of a resistless ai my. Each
new discovery becomes ut once a pow
erful implement in thc bands of innu
merable workers, and each year wins
ovor fresh regions of thu universe from
the unknown to Hie known. Our own
generation has booomo so wonted to
this unresting mareil ot discovery Unit
wo already lake il as a maller of
course. Our minds become easily
deadened to its real import, and tho
examples we cite in illustration of it
have an air of triteness. Wo scarcely
need to bc reminded that all the advan
ces m ide in locomotion, from the days
of Nonuohadnezz.tr tu tho.se of Amlrow
Jackson, woro as nothing comp.<rod to
tho chango that has been wrought
within a few years by ibo introduction
of railroads. In these limes, when
Puck has fulfilled his boast and put a
girdle about tho earth in forty minutes,
wo aro not yet, perhaps, in danger of
forgetting that a Century has not
elapsed since ho who caught tho light
ning upon his kite was laid in tho
grave. Yet tho losson of tho facts, as
woll as of tho grandmother's spinning
whool that stands by tho parlor (?resido,
is woll to bear in mind. Tho chango
therein oxomplllicd since Ponolopo
plied her distaff is far less than that
which has occurred within tho memory
of living men. Tue development of
mnchinory, which has worked such
woudors, have greatly ullcrod Ibo po
litical conditions of human society, so
that n hugo republic Uko tho Unltod

easily manageable as was tho tiny re
public of Switzorlaud in tho oignteonlh

surface has boon multiplied manifold,
and while tho mass of hu man lifo has
thus increased, its value has bcon at
