Life didn't seem desirable any longer, and it would be blessed to be with Paul, even at the bottom of the ocean. And think ing thus, the long eyelashes drooped more and moro heavily—peace fell upon the brow and lips; she was asleep—asleep and dreaming a sweet joyful dream. IIow long she slept she never knew. She awoke with a sensation of intense cold. The spell of slumber was so strong upon her that for a moment she did not realize what had taken place. The cave was half full of water. Her feet and the hem of her dress were already wet, and the roar of the waves beneath the hardly' distinguishable archway told that the tide had surprised another victim, and already the avenue of the cave wrus barred. Was this the answer to some unspoken prayer? 'flie thought flashed over her. Had she really prayed for death? Here it was, close at hand, and she was conscious of no gladness—only an intense intinctive desire for life. It was too dreadful to be drowned in that hole, and washed away like a weed. Life was worth living, after all. naa somenouy saui, or was sue dream ing, that a portion of the cave was left uncovered by the water? Ship could not remember, but searched about now for some indication. Ah! surely this was one —a cork, a scrap of paper, lodged on the highest shelf-—fragile things which a tide must inevitably have washed away. With that instinct of properly which survives shipwreck and lire, she collected her draw ing materials and other little belongings, and retreating with them to this possible place of refuge, wrapped her cloak about her, and with folded hands sat down to await her fate. The cave was full of pale green light. It was beautiful to see, as the advancing flow rose lodge over ledge and flooded the fairy pools, how each star flower and sea-urchin, each crimson and golden weed, trembled and quivered as with delight at its refreshing touch. Each anemone threw wide its petals and expanded into full blos som to meet the spray baptism. No moc tal eye ever looked upon sight more charm ing : but its beauty was lost to the shiver ing and terrified girl. Tho doorway had quite disappeared. Sharp spray dashed against her dress. The drops struck her face. She shrank and clung more tightly to the rock. A prayer rose to her lips; and through the tremulous light of the submerged^ arch way a strange shadow began to go and come, to move and pause, and move again. Was it fish, or weed, or some mysterious presence? Did it come accompanied by life or death ? Meantime upon the rocks above a dis tracted group were collected. The party had come gayly back from the Heads. Dr. Gray, ignorant landsman as he was, had grown uneasy and hurried them away. Arrived at the Grotto the full extent of the calamity was at once evident. The boy had mistaken the tide—flow for ebb— and the only hope left was that Esther, discovering her danger in time, had taken refuge at tho cottage near by. They flew to search, but, as we know, in vain. The sobbing girls hung distractedly over the cliff, listening to the hollow boom with which the waves swung into the cavern beneath—sickening to think of the awful something which might any moment wash outward on the returning billow. The gentlemen went for assistance, and brought a couple of stout fishermen to the spot. But what could anybody do ? “If the young woman has sense enough to climb up the right hand corner and set still it won't hurt tier none perhaps,” one of them said. “Not more nor two tides a year gets up there.” Ah! if Esther could only be told that! They could hut trust powerlessiy to her steadiness of nerve and common sense. “She’s Such a wise thing," Helen sobbed out. So they waited. A rattle of wheels came t'roqj the road. They all turned to look, and some oue said: “Perhaps it's a doctor!” Though what earthly use a doctor eould have been would have been hard to say. A figure was coming rapidly up the path a young mail. Nobody recognized him till l)r. Gray started forward with the face of one who sees a ghost. “Paid! Good God! Is it possible P’ “Yes Doctor,” with a hasty hand shake. “No other. I don’t wonder you stare.” “But in heaven’s name how has it come about ? Where have you been since we gave you tip for lost ?” “It’s a long story. You shall hear it some day. But”—rapidly—“forgive my impatience—where is my cousin ? What is the matter?” There was a dead silence. At last with a groan. Dr. Gray spoke : “Paul, my poor fellow, how can I tell you ?—Esther is below there.” “In the grotto?” “In the grotto. Can anything be done?” The young man staggered. The glow faded from his face, lea\ ing him ashy pale. For a moment he stood irresolute, then he roused himself, and his voice, though husky, was firm. “It's a frightful place; still there is no absolute danger if she keeps her presence of mind. I stayed there over a tide my self once just to see it. Is your boat at home ?" to one of the fishermen. “Yes, sir." “Fetch it round then as quickly as pos sible.”—Then to l)r. Gray: “I shall row out there opposite the entrance, and make a dive for it. If I come up inside it’s all right, and I’ll see that no harm happens to Esther till the water falls, and we can get her out.” ••But—the risk!” ••There is the risk of striking the arch as I rise, that is all. I’m a good swimer. Doctor, as you know. 1 thbik it can be done. You can guess." with a sort of pale smile, “how 1 have been counting on this meeting : and to leave her a'-’oe
