TWENTY BOLD MARINERS.
Twenty bold mariners weut to the wa?e, Twenty tweet brs blew orer the main, All was 89 hearty, ao free and so bray, But they never came back again! Half the wild ocean rose up to the clouds, Half the broad sky scowled tr thunder and rain. Twenty white crests rose around them like shrouds. And they staid la the dancing main! This Is easy to sing and often to mourn, And the breaking of dawn is no newer to day; Dut those who die young or are left forlorn, Think grief Is do older than they! "WHO CALLED MK?" Patient, with weight of years upon his head, The old man sat wlthla the chimney nook; Ills ears were dnll, he heard no word was said; Ilia eyes were dim, he read no face or book. Serene and still, without a doubt or fear; Between two worlds, not wholly there nor here. One night the gray face brightened with strange light. "Who called me?" with quick eagerness he cried, , . And held his head rect and sat upright. "Who called me?" then he softly smiled and sighed: It was my mother's voice; she called me so When ereaiug shadows fell long, long ago." He mused some hours, then suddenly once more Broke into smiles, and said, "Be still! Be still! a , I bear the squirrels on the forest floor! I near the hunter's voice upon the hill! It must be morning now o'er land and sea; I hear my brother he is calling me." The summons came again at middle night; We saw the glory through Death's mystic gray . Coinlngl" he cried, his face with wonder bright. "A good night, dears!" and so he went away. Yet while we listened, worshipping and dumb, I heard him passing to some Presence, say: "Haste thee before, and tell my dead I come!" Oar Continent, GIUSUIU STEPANOVNA. A Russian railroad answers the defi nition of a straight line it Is the short est distance between two points. Di rect as an arrow-flight, it condescends to no twists or curves to oblige neigh boring towns, and the interminable levels force it to no obedience to natu ral obstacles. While this simple system of engineer ing is grateful to the hurried traveler, it gives him the impression that the land ii more barren and uupopulated than is in fact the case and renders a journey less interesting. So I reflected one day as the smoke of the great foundries and mills of Tula a city of 60,000 inhabitants, one hundred and twenty miles south of Moscow disap peared, and I at once passed into long stretches of birch and pine woods sever ed here and there by patches of rye and barley or by treeless plains covered with the scanty herbage of the late sum mer. tv nnlv cnmnanion in the coune was an elderly merchant as I knew by his costume who on entering had saluted me in Russian. As my vocabulary of that tongue was limited to about Ave words, I had bowed silently and not ventured on further advances. A French newspaper which I began to read opened the way for conversation. Monsieur is French? queried my neighbor, in that tongue, which he spoke In a fluent but ungrammatical manner. No.' I replied, 'American from the United States.' 'Ah,' he exclaimed, his face lighting up, 'an American! For a long time I have seen no American. I have read of your country, of your Washington, who drove out the English nobles and gave their land to the people. We Russians like you Americans. Like you we have no slaves and no nobles; I mean no real nobles; anybody in Russia may become a noble, just as with you. There was the great Prince Menschikoff, who stood next the Czar himself. What was he at first? A baker's boy who sold pies. Ila! ha! And when he became a Se rene Ilighness, he kicked and beat the old nobles who bragged they came of the blood of Rurik. Yes, in Russia all are equal before the czar. He thinks no better of the proudest prince than of the blackest moujick' (peasant). But,' I objected, 'there doesn't seem much chance for the poor moujick to get ahead. Not once in a million instan ces do we hear of any such luck as that of Prince Menschikoff. 'True,' said the merchant, 'luck such as his don't happen twice. But I know plenty of moujicks who have done right well. Shall I tell you of one whom I knew long ago, an old playmate of mine? Nothing,' said I, 'would please me more. Well, there was luck, too, about him. Bad and good luck. I will tell you. It's a sort of a love story, too, une histoire Vamour, that may amuse a young man like you. His name was Damian Sidoroff, and he belonged to the village of Karporov, a dozen versts from Tula, lie had lost his lather, and his mother was weekly and had no other children. In most things he was no better than other lads, but this I can say for him, that he never beat his mother and never drank vodka. The brandy farmer would taunt him saying : 'What, Damian Sidoroff, you drink braga beer and tea, which pay no tax, but you won t drink vodka, which is taxed to help the czar, our father, pay his soldiers and keep off the infidel Turks. You are no good Russian,' but Damian had a strong arm, and they took it out in talk, and not too much of that What others spent for vodka he kept in pocket. Orishka Stepanovna had something to do with that. She was the prettiest girl in the village and her father the richest moujick, and Damian Sidoroff knew that there was no hope of asking for her with empty hands. He thought Grishka fancied him, but she seemed so chaneable, now hot now cold, that it worried his life out. 'One day a wool merchant came to the village and was so well pleased with the help Damian gave him that he said, - 4Get your permit, and come with me to the year-market, and you will make a round dozen of paper roub les.' That was his luck, and quick enough he took it At the year market he learned to read and keep accounts, while others talked or drank brandy, so that when it was over the wool deal er said, 'Get your permit extended and travel with me buying wool. Damian went home thinking or his mother and Grishka, for there were no mails In those days, and if there had been no one in the village could write. So it happened that he found his moth er had died and the little furniture been sold to pay debts. All he cared for now in the village was Grishka, and he de termined that then or never he would gain her. Without taking off his knap sack he went to her father. The old man was sitting in his house drinking and playing dice with his nephew. The door was open, and in marched Damian. Boris Stephanovitch,' he said, 'my mother is dead and I cannot send her to ask for your daughter, so I come myself. I love her ; I have forty-four roubles and a good place with the wool merchant. Will you promise her to me?' Old Boris turned his eyes slowly to the young man, and said : Have yot got them with you r Got what?' The twenty-four roubles.' Yes.' Then Til throw dice with you. If you win, keep the roubles and take Grishka. If you lose, get out and both er me no more.' Damian never gambled, but in this game he would have staked his soul to the deviL They cast the dice and this time Da- raian's luck was against him, for he lost. The old man seized the roubles and his nephew burst into a laugh. Damian could not say a word, but turned from the door, death in his heart But how luck turns t He had got to the end of the village, when who should he see coming from the well but Grishka her self, carrying a jar of water on her shoulder, prettier and saucier than ever. Holy Mother Anna 1 she cried out, whence came you, Damian Sidoroff? I was not looking for such a fine traveled gentleman,' Grishka btepanovay said Damian, I am just back from the year-market. I find my mother dead, and I have just lost forty-four roubles to your father. If I had won, he would have given you to me for a wife. Now I am going away forever. Rest in God.' You ought to have seen how she changed. 'What r she cried, putting down her jar and beginning to cry, 'did my ras cally father play me for forty-four rou bles? The old greedy miser, I'll slap his face. And if I want you, Damian Sidoroff, I'll have you. You come back next spring and bring another forty-four roubles, and I'll wait for you, and we shall marry, no matter what father says.' You may believe Damian felt as if he had drained a bottle of champagne, and you may guess how he consoled the of fended beauty of the village. It was not hard work, under those circum stances. That night after a hundred vows, he left to return to the wool mer chant The thought that he had the forty-four roubles to earn made him work all the harder and save all the closer. He learned all about wool and picked up some French and German, More than once he saved his patron from being cheated, and when it came to dealing with the tchinovnicks (gov ernment ottcials), they squeezed him less than they did his master. One day in February when they had brought to Tula a sled of wool, whom should he meat in a tea-house but the nephew of Boris Stepanovitch, the one who was present at the famous game. Ah, Damian Sidoroff, said this one. after they had taken tea, would to God Uncle Boris had given you Grishka. Though I never thought much of you, she has brought us worse luck than if she had married you. Our boria has died and his nephew came to look after the land. The very first day that he saw Grishka, he sent for her to be his housekeeper. Uncle Boris talked a good deal of the big wages she would get, but she. swore she wouldn't go for a hundred roubles a day, -although the new boyar is a mighty handsome young officer, and I don't believe another girl in the village would have made a fuss about it. 'What does the boyar do ? First, he gets the assessor to find that Uncle Boris owes a hundred and fifty roubles of back taxes ; then the judge of the district says he wants him for Inquiry and will have to shut him up unless a hundred roubles are found; then the. police magistrate takes him up on suspicion of harboring a horse thief. I know what it all means, and as Grishka is as obstinate as a mule, I take my wife and child and go up to his excellency and beg leave to come to Tula to work at my trade of felting till summer, for by that time Grishka will have to come around and all will be right again. The obstinate huzzy I His Excellency is a noble gentleman. When we had kissed his hand, he spoke very kindly and said, "Go, my children you shall have permits. The old Boris I What bad for tune is his! And Grishka, the poor girl, will now be left alone. Tell her to come and seo me and I'll try and help her father out of this ugly scrape.' Would you believe it? When I told Grishka this she slapped me in the face. I ought to have taken my stick to her and given her a good beating. That s the way to manage women.' 'Damian heard all this, sitting on pins and needles. He kept his counsel, however, and when the whole story was through he hastened to the wool merchant and asked to be' let off for two weeks that he might go home. The merchant did no t like it at all but as Damian had been faithful and asked but little, he got leave and start ed that night. He was a stout young fellow then and did not mind the cut ting wind and the snow. Moreover something burned within him like a fire that seemed to defy any cold or wind. By the evening of the second day he reached Karporov and went straight to the house of Boris Stepanovitch. It was closed and dark. He kicked the door open. The room was cold and empty. He rushed to the brandy farmer's, where he found, as he knew he would, half a dozen villagers lying on the stove, half drunk. 'If he had asked them at once what he was crazy to know, he would have only got laughter and evasion; so he first ordered three measures of vodka to celebrate his return, but tasted none himself. Then he asked the news. This one had died, that one had been flogged, and at last the bad luck of old Boris was told, and how he was now in prison at Jodeno, six versts away. 'Yes,' drawled one, 'and I did hear that the old fellow is about going un der, and was allowed to send for his daughter. Our noble young boyar of fered to lend her a horse and see her through the forest as the wolves are plenty enough this year, Damian.' 'Ila! ha!' laughed another, 'my wife says that Grishka got as far as the boyar's residence and no further.' Damian had heard enough. He hurried from the room and to the boy ar's house, which stood at one end of the village, between it and the forest It was already dark when he entered and asked to see his Excellency. He was admitted to a room where a hand some young man was seated at a table. Damian knelt and kissed his hand as our Russian custom is, and said: "Your Excellency, I am the serf Damian Sidoroff, working with a per mit with the wool merchant Ivan Pe trovitch. I am affianced to Grishka Stepanovna, and have come to ask leave of marriage.' 'The young officer looked at him a minute and said; 4 You're the beggar, then, t hat's in her bead. I'll teach you manners. How do you like this?' With that he picked up his riding whip and struck Damian across the face such a blow that it started the blood, and with a kick sent him sprawling on the floor. 'Take that and go back to the wool merchant at once; and if you show your face again in Karporov you'll be knouted within an inch of your life. 'Damian had with him one of those short axes which our peasants use. It is an ugly weapon in a strong man s hand, and the temptation to use it was fearfully great But he resisted, and hastened from the room. The saints rewarded him. In the dark passage way a person stopped him and whisper ed: "I have heard all; save me, Damian Sidoroff, and take me with you. I am your Grishka, and as pure as I ever was. But save me. Take me with you. Damian knew how hopeless it was. Where could they go? At night the wolves, at daylight capture, then the knout; this was what he saw before him. There was no kind of chance of really escaping. For all that he did not hesitate an instant. 'Come,' he said, and they ran together out into the dark ness. There was no danger of immediate pursuit as the servants would all pre tend ignorance for fear of getting Into some scrape. They hastened to the forest and on the road determined that they would seek refuge in a deserted hut known to Damian, and the next day go on to Tula. The hut was a solid one of logs and offered them some protection, but the air was bitterly cold and neither dared sleep for fear of freezing. It was not a fine chance for love making, though they were alone in the woods. They had enough other things to think about They had not been in the hut an hour before a chorus of howls told them that a pack of wolves had scented their track. This did not add much to their fears, as the heavy logs and Damian's axe would keep the beasts at bay. At early dawn another sound fright ened them more than the wolves, and that was the baying of hounds. They had been missed and followed. Noth ing seemed before them but capture and the knout! But how the saints or der these things! 'As the boyar rode in sight the wolves left the hut and attacking him and his dogs with ravenous ferocity sprang, a half dozen at a time, at his horse. The boyar was a brave officer and was ready for them. Snatching his pistols he fired rapidly, killing Beveral of the furious beasts; but one caught his horse by the throat and dragged it down. The boyar sprang to one side and fired his last shots, doing good work but not enough, for before he could escape to a tree a wolf seized him from behind and in an instant was crushing his neck. Danian had seen all this from the hut and did not waste a moment With a loud shout he sprang forward and with his axe split the head of the wolf. Grishka, who had followed liim laid another one flat with a billet of wood. The wolves frightened at these rein forcements ran snarling away, and in a few minutes half a dozen peasants who had followed the boyar reached the scene. The wounded man was carried home, and the surgeon said he would die. But he lived, and when he found who it was that had saved his life, he gave Damian and Grishka their freedom and a hun dred roubles each, with which to setup business. He was a hard man, the boyar, in some ways, but back of all was a kind heart, and as for bad traits, who has them not? As we Russians say, 'Who is without fin before God? Who is blameless before the czar?' That is the story of Damian's luck, and if you want to hear more of it, how he started in the wool business for him self and made a comfortable fortune and had two fine lads, one of whom is already a captain, and gives orders to princes, come to No. 8 Tcherujov St. when next you are in Tula, and you will find me there, and you shall eat a plate of sterlet soup prepared by the hands of Grishka Stepanovna herself.' Our Continent. Tiie New York Tribune says that a young man who had been turned out of Rev. John Jasper's church in Richmond for lying, persisted that he did not lie, and hoped God would paralyze his tongue if what he said was not true. Instantly his tongue began to swell, and was so thick he could hardly articulate, Ho reappear ed in church, and with as much vol ume of sound as he could raise, re peated his former assertion, and has not been able to utter a word since. Sovereign nor oracle have seldom uttered a wiser word than that which Walter Scott's Jennie Deane is rep resented as speaking- to the queen: But when the hour of trouble comes to the mind or body, and when the hour uf death comes, that comes to high and low, then it is na what we hae done for ourselves, but what we hae dune for others, that we think on maist pleasantly." One of our Western ecclesiastics, a bishop, must be sorely vexed, or he would not write to a New York pa per, complaining of "the utter lack of sense of responsibility among the laity of the churcli.and t he want of any distinct notion among the clergy of what they ought to do to make the people behave themselves."
