Matt did not reply, but gazed at William
so long and so significantly that the good man,
conscious of her scrutiny, turned and plunged
into the darkness of his dwelling.
An hour later a loud voice called him forth.
He went to the door, and there was Monk, of
Monkshurst. It was the first time they had
met since they parted on the night of the
murder. Monk was dressed in a dark sum
mer suit, and looked unusually spick and
"Where's the girl!" he cried, after a whi

In answer to the call Matt appeared at the
door. No sooner did she perceive Meik than
she trembled violently, and went very pale.
"Come here, Matt," ha said, with an insin
uating smile. "See! I've brought some
thing for you-something pretty for you to
As he spoke he drew from his waistcoat
pocket a small gold ring, set with turquoise
stones. But Matt still trembled, and shrank
"I don't want it!-I shan't wear it," she
"Nonsense, Matt!" said Monk. "Why, it's
a ring fit for a lady. Come, let me put it on
So great seemed her agitation, so deep her
dread of him, that she could not stir; so that
when he approached, laughing, and caught
her round the waist, he slipped the ring on
her finger before she could resist. But it only
remained there a moment. With a quick,
sharp cry, she tore herself free, and, taking
the ring off, threw it right away from her
upon the sand. Then, with a wild gesture of
fear and loathing, she rushed into the cottage.
William Jones walked over and picked up
the ring, while Monk stood scowling darkly
after the fugitive.
"What the devil ails the girl?" cried the
latter, with a fierce oath, pocketing the pres
"I dunno. She's never been the same
sinee-since the painter chap went missing.
I'm afeerd he turned the gal's head."
"He'll turn no more heads," muttered
Monk under his breath; he added aloud and
with decision, "There must be an end to this.
She must be married to me at once."
"Do you mean it, master? When you
spoke on it fust I thought you was joking."
"Then you were a fool for your pains.
She's old enough, and bold enough, and vix
enish enough; but I'll tame her. I tell you
there must be no more delay. My mind's
made up, and I'll wait no longer."
Sinking their voices they continued to talk
together for some time. .Now, Matt was
crouching close to the threshold, and had
heard every word of the above conversation,
md much that followed it. When Monk
walked away and disappeared, leaving Wil
Lm Jones ruminant at the broken gate, she
Curiously enough all her exciteient hat
leparted. Instead of weeping or protesting
she looked at William Jones-and laughed.
Monk had left his horse at the coastguard
station. Remounting he rode rapidly away
-hrough the sandhills in the direction of the
ake. As he approached the spot of the old
meampment he saw that the caravan had

He hesitated for a moment, then hurried
'apidly forward, and, arriving close to the
rehicle, saw the Irishman's head looking

)eckoned, and Tim pulled up.
"Has your master returned? I am in

"No, sor; sorra sight have I seen of him for

"I hope you will," said Monk, sympa

The bridegroom, attired in decent blac

The years conie, and the years go,

Carrie : falling;
And across the sunless river's flow.
With accents soft, and whispers low,
The friends long lost are calling,
While Autumn his red glory wears,
And clouds oppress the sky, like cares -
But the old griefs die, and new joys are born
And alter the midnight cometh morn.
The years wake, and the years sleep.
And the past is full of sorrow.
The thou:.htless laugh and 'the thoughtful
And each the fruit of his follies reap,
For to-day is the fate of to-morrow,
But new loves tempt us to torget
Tho old and old friends love us yet
so the old griefs die and new joys are born,
And after the midniaht cometh morn.
The years laugh, the years sigh,
But the flowers for you are blowing.
As girlhood's days go dancing by,
And womanhood's blithe May is niglh
With hopes and fancies glowing,
Carrie ! glowing;
While Love his nests for you prepares,
And lurks to catch you unawares
And the old griefs die, and new joys are

And after the midnight cometh morn.

We sanctify thy name;
Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done
In Heacen and earth the same:
Give us this day our daily bread:
And us forgive thou so,
As we on them that do offend
Forgiveness do bestow;
Into temptation lead us not
But us rom evil free;
For Thine the kingdom, power and praise
Is, and shall ever be."

And he turned testily and gazed at the fire.
But Matt, whose eyes were full of a curious
light, was not to be abashed.
"Ain't you well, William Jones?" she asked.
"Pm well enor.gh-I am."

The world is full of books; Inaga
a zines and papers are multiplied so
cheaply and abundantly that they al
r- most overwhelm us. In this state of
things it often becomes a question as
to what we shall read. Without go
irg into this subject in all its length
and breadth, one thing may be held as
true, that our daily papers give alto
-t gether too much attention to a record
o of the evil deeds of mankind. and too
little to the good deeds. There can
be no doubt that it detnoralizes the
rminds of the young more than almost
r anything else to dwe:I so much on
that which is evil, to read so many
< sensational accounts of elopements,
murders, suicides, and other crimes
which fill our journals. Indeed, there
1- is abundant evidence that the read
r ing of these stories frequently causes
others to go and do the same thing;
on the other hand, the record of the
good deeds of mankind stimulates
others to imitate them. There is no
doubt but the publicatiou of the be
quests of rich men to found institu
tions for the benefit of the race, has
stimulated others to make similar
dispensations of their surplus money.
Mothers should always interest
themselves in the reading of their
children, and be able by a wise word,
when it is required, to guide their
tastes to the best. But in order to
do this they must themselves be in
formed-must give thought to the
subject. Our children are worth
our deepest and best thought. But
not only is it a question of impor
tance what our children read, but
also what we read ourselves. There
should be but one aim: Read the i
best. The world is full of good k
books, books full of wisdom, and we
should read such of them as will
make us wiser and better.

ginia lie expects to get 50,000 or
60,000, and out of 128,000 negro
votes he will secure 120.000. With
characteristic folly he practically

total of 170,000 is ridiculous. Ac

This latter vote was the union of the
old and the new Republican white

sMuch of the old Republican vote will
not go to Wise, and in all State elec

the attention of a companion of Gen.
Lee's was called to Capt. Wise's re

been heard of." While expressing
surprise at the rudeness of the lan
guage, it was hoped that Capt. Wise
had been misreported. "For," said
the gentleman pithily, "Gen. Lee's
life has always done honor to his
name. But it is a capital misfor
tuue when a good name becomes a
misnomer and is contradicted by the
flippant talk of him who bears it."
