i lid Mr. Bittleston . had a charming
house and ground on tlio Thames, near
Marlow, including a pretty little eyot. One
sultry afternoon lie was enjoying a placid
!■"■ in a shady arbor near the water's
edge when he was aroused by the splashing
_ . . «rrr- — v ..■■".. *-
iii" oars, anil beheld a young man in a boat
ing costume in th i act of alighting upon
the lawn. Mr. ".lulu* ton sprang to his
feet in an instant, prepared to lose his
temper on small " provocation. He knew
the stranger's errand, for he received half
a dozen promiscuous visits of this kind in
the course of the day. When the young
man drew near lie proved to be rather a
mild-looking youth, who wore spectacles
and seemed diffident and embarrassed.
"' Have I the pleasure of speaking to the
proprietor of this island?'' he inquired,
politely lifting his straw bat from his
. ad, "Yes, the island belongs to me,"
said Mr. Bittleston, shortly. "Will you
permit me to hand you my card?" said the
stranger: producing a card-case. Mr. Bit
tl -i.'.'i felt somewhat molified by the young
man's {ml and respectful demeanor, and
lie look the card. It bore the following
inscription* "The Roy. Mark very, i.4
Hay street, St freorge's-in-the-East."
"Oh, you are a clergyman" remarked the
old gentleman, who had a good, dd-fash
ioncd regard for the cloth. ''Yes, in de
spite of my dress, nvbi.li is decidedly un
clerical," said tlie young man, smiling ; " I
suppose you can guess why i troubled you.
We are on our way to Oxford, and i wished
your permission to cam pout on your island
for the night, with my friends." "I an
sorry to say that I've '.-■■ v. obliged to put
i stop to that," said Mr. Bittleston ; ■*-__
i— aid I cannot make in exception in your
«■— -j." " I hope you will, sir,' said the
parson, pc rsuasiv :ly ; " I plead not so
much for myself .io for my two compan
ions. They are lioth very worthy young
men, and this: little trip which I bave
organized is .-. pleasure which they have
never before experienced. One is a
pupil teacher nt our school^ and the other
is assistant at the night school. They
have both earned a holiday, and 1 wish to
do all lean to promote their enjoyment.'
"You will find plenty of accommodation
nt Mario w, at all events," said Mr. (tittle
ston. " Undoubtedly ; but the fact is, we
cannot afford to pay for it," returned the
Rev. Mark, candidly; "my companions
have no money, and ray own purse is, un
fortunately, very narrow*." "Oh, then you
ire paymaster, said the old gentleman,
-vim kind heart began to lie touched by
the ; arson's artless confession. "Yes, it is
my treat, in fact," anssvered the Rev.
Mark, smiling* "of course, if you object
in our landing on your island nre must try
elsewhere. Hat it is a convenient spot,
and I hoped — " '' Weil, well, for this once
I will make an exception,', interrupted
Mr. Bittleston, unable to resist any longer.
" i must ask you to fix your camp on the
most remote corner of the island, »nd not
to damage the underwood. When you
lake your morning bath please bear ii
mind that the windows if my house over
look ti-,-- island." "We will do nothing
that an [possibly offend you," returned the
young man, offer ing his hand to Mr. Bit
tleston, who grasped it it; a friendly fash
ion; " I am exceedingly obliged to you for
. mr kindness." " Don't mention it," said
the old gentleman, walking by the parson's
side aero— the lawn; "any little thing we
. .in do for you or supply you with, do not
hesitate to ask. Have you any fresh milk?
I know that it is a commodity which is
generally in request."
" Thank you. We won't trespass fur
ther on your kindness," returned Rev.
ark, heartily "we have our provisions."
•' Would yon and vonr companions come
■and dine at the house with me to-night '!'
inquired Mr. Bittleston, who was a hos
pitable old gentleman, and had taken
nether a fancy to the young man ; "my
wife and daughters would be pleased."
'• You aro extremely kind, but the fact
is, my companions,, though excellent young
men, arc not quite refined enough to sit at
your table," -aid the Rev. Mark, cautiously
lowering bis voice so that the occupants of
the- boat should not hear him: "for m y-
Hclf," be added aloud, " I should only be
too pleased, but, unfortunately, I have no
clothes but these I stand up in. We arc
only away for the inside of a week, and
must be bark on Sunday."
■'Never mind your clothes," Slid old
Mr. Bittleston ; " we shall be quite alone
to-night, and my wife and daughters am
accustomed to nee guests in I -ating cos
" In that ease I shall !-• only too happy,"
said the Rev. Mark, as he step'ted into the
boat; "what time do you dine?""
"j\t 7 you will hear the gong," an-
Bwered Mr. Bittleston from the bank, as he
•.-bun at the young parson's companions"
The latter were very unprej>os.**i'ssing
young men, and would evidently have
been out of place in a gentleman's dining
room. On seeing them it occurred i.. Mr.
Bittleston that be had been a little too
precipitate with his invitations, and it was
partly owing to this reflection that he took
down the clergy list on reaching the house
md searched for the Rev. Mark Avery's
name. He found it duly recorded, and
learned that the young man was curate of
***t. Blaise's church" one of the largest and
poorest parishes in the I.'-', of London.
The parson made his appearance at din
ner and created a favorable impression.
II • won Mr. Bittleson's i,. art by taking an
immense intercs t in the house and grounds,
and insisted on (ing shown over them.
His tabs of ii suffering poor of the parish
and his modest references to his own ardu
ous life, elicited the sympathy ■■'. the la
diest, and, in fact, the evening passed of so
well that, on rising to leave, old Mr. Bit
tlenton pressed him to remain a day in
the neighborhexsil, bo its to visit the church
and other objects of local interest '' No,
thank yon. I'm afraid we must not lin
ger," he said, shaking his host warmly by
the hand; "we have our work cut til to
row to Oxford and back to town by Satur
day. I must think of my companions."
'• Well, at all events, rome and have break
fast with us to-morrow," the old gentleman
■"-"-■'• Wo must be several stages on onr road
before your breakfast hour," he arid, as he
(-luted the ladies in turn ; " by-the-by,"
he added, addressing Mr. Bittleston, 'there
is one small favor I venture to ask of yon.
May I leave a jert'ii'int.'.iu litre and fetch
it in on our way down on Friday or Satur
day?" " y-^y^;yyyi
"Certainly," arid the old gentleman,
promptly. -
•' 1 find we have a good many things we
shan't need, now that the weather baa set
in fair," he explained ; " there are always
some cooking utensils; we can dispense
with. , It is desirable to lighten our boat,
and by leaving the portmanteau here I
shall have an excuse for calling on our way
" We shall be* delighted tosee you," Raid
Mr. Bittleston ; " and if you leave- the
portmanteau at the house, to-morrow morn
ing, it shall be taken care of."
The Rev. Mark then took his departure.
Next morning the party had left when tha
family came down to breakfast, but the
parson had intrusted the portmanteau to
one of the servants. The following day he
•wrote a few lines to Mr. Bittleston from
Beading, sending a piece of music which
he had recommended one of the young
ladies to get, and begging that she would
accept it, as he happened to .••..me across it
in a music shoo in the town. The little
act of politeness excited less attention than
it might otherwise have done, because the
latter arrived nnhiie everyone ntas in a
great B tat of excitement. The discovery
had just been made that a large quantity
of jewelry"" plate, and other articles had
been abstracted from a safe in Mr. Kittle
("ton's dressing-room. The loss was so con
siderable that Mr. Bittleston immediately
telegraphed to Scotland-yard, not caring to
intrust the matter to the local police. In
response a detective appeared upon the
scene, and made a careful inspection of the
premises. The safe was uninjured, and the
lock had not been tampered with.
"it was very cleverly done, but there
was no magic in it," said the inspector, a
sharp-eyed little man named Hardiss;
"the lock is a very ordinary one, and has
evidently been opened nvith a key."
" But who could have done it? I am about
the house and grounds all day, and no
body could have got in and out without
being observed," said Mr. Bittleston, in a
great fluster.
" It's a case of burglary," answered tho
inspector; "there are no signs of a forci
ble entrance having been effected, but
some of the windows on the ground floor
have no shutters and may have been un
" Then you n't suspect any of the Ber
t-ants?" said Mr. Bittleston ; "Indeed I
can answer for them all."
■• Well," said the inspector, shrugging
his shoulders, " I can't express an opinion
at present Have you had any stranger in
the house lately?"
"No," said Mr. Bittleston. adding, as
he remembered the Rev. Mark Avery,
" by-the-by, a clergyman dined here a
night or two ago — a curate of a London
parish. He was the only vi„ tor the last
few flays."
The Inspector asked no questions about
the parson, but Mr. Bittleston resolved to
make a journey by the Kasten-J, and ascer
tain beyond a doubt tbat the. Rev. Mark
was the* person he represented himself to
be. He had no difficulty about this, and
bad the satisfaction of feeling, upon his
return' that be had not committed an in
discretion. It so happened that when he
called at the Rev. Mark Avery's address be !
met his friend's vicar coming out of the
door. Mr. Bittleston easily ascertained
that the young curate had gone on a oat
ing expedition to Oxford nvith two com
panions, and this evidence appeared quite
Conclusive. He made a clumsy excuse to
the vicar" to account for his solicitude, and
made his way home, feeling ashamed of
The following evening Inspector Hardiss
called to report progress, and to ask a few
further questions. Mr. Bittleston was out
in the garden, and the officer joined him
on the lawn.
" It's a puzzle, and that's a fact," said
Hardiss, when his inquiries had been satis
fied. " I've come to the conclusion it has
been done by some one in the house. No
stranger has been in the neighborhood,
and it.*, downright impossible that any one
could have got away with the swag with
out being noticed in a little place like
" here arc the things, then ?" inquired
Mr. Bittleson, testily.
" Not very far oil, I can't help thinking,"
answered the inspector ; ''with your per
mission I will search the premises thor
oughly, including the garret and cellars."
While the inspector was speaking, Mr.
Bittleson*. youngest daughter, a girl of 14,
came running across the lawn. " Papa,"
she erio.l, " isn't that Mr. Avery*? He is
rowing stroke in that boat, and be baa evi
dently forgotten the house, but hid port
manteau is here."
"By Jove! I believe it is Avery and his
friends,'' cried Mr. Bittleston, as the boat
swept quickly past the lawn in midstream
at the best pace the oarsmen could com
mand. "Hi, you! Confound him! why
can't he look round? Boat ahoy I - '
But, though Mr. Bittleston had good
lungs, and though a broad sheet of vrater
is an excellent conductor of Bound, his
voice failed to arrest the attention of the
occupants of the boat, who were straining
every nerve to reach the next lock. While
Mr. liitt'cston nvas still shouting, they be
gan to disappear from view round the top
reach, without once turning their heads.
"Silly fellow," exclaimed Mr. Bittleston
in a state of excitement, as he hastily de
scended from the garden Beat on which he
had been standing ; " he must lie deaf and
blind, too! Here, Ada, quick! Tell
Robert to run to my room and bring Mr.
Avery's portmanteau. Lend me a hand,
inspector. If we look sharp, we shall bo
able to catch him at the lock." ■ *'\ !
He led the way to the boathotisc as he
spoke, followed by the inspector. But by \
the time the boat was ready, and the foot
man had appeared with the portmanteau,
several minutes had elapsed.
"Here, Robert, put the portmanteau in
the bow and jump in," said Mr. Bittleston,
impatiently. "I want you to row me to
the lock as quick as you can."
" IjCt me lend a hand," said Inspector
Hardiss, divesting himself of his coat in a
very business-like manner.
The party started down stream in pur
suit, Mr. Bittleston steering, and frequent:
ly bobbins up and down in his excitement,
to try and catch* sight of the boat ahead,
In spite of their efforts, however, they
found the lock-gates closed against them,
and the parson's boat out of sight. What
was more tantalizing, the lock had Wen
emptied by the time then) got there, and
was waiting a boat which was coming up
stream. An abrupt turn in the river at a
short distance already hid from view the
boat just relieved from the lock.
"What a nuisance!" exclaimed Mr.
Bittleston, mopping Lis forehead as ha
stood on the Lank of the lock, having taken
in at a glance the position of affairs.
" Boat with throe gentlemen just gone
through, the— ?" he added, to the lock
keeper. ' :'
--" Yes, sir : but they are coming Luck.
They pulled their boat round by the back
water ami went ■<■':■ ire, after asking me to
keep an eye on it til! they returned,'* said
the man.
"Oil, that'- all right," said Mr. Bittles
ton, in a tone of satisfaction; " we will get
back, inspector, to attend to business. Hi .
Bring up that portmanteau, Robert.
Smithers, you will take charge of it, ar.d |
give it to the Rev. Mr. Avery, who is one
of those three gentlemen, with ray compli
ments.*' H''."y?:
"I think you mentioned my name, sir,"
said a v.ii..' from the lock, proceeding from i
one of the occupants of a boat which had
just entered. - ; t ; '-*
" Xot that 1 am aware of," said Mr. Bit
tleston, politely. [he gentleman I re
ferred to was the Rev. Mark Avery."
" 1 am the Rev. Mark Avery," said the
stranger, promptly.
"The gentleman that I mean is the
curate fit' St. Blaise's Church, in St.
George's-in-the-East," said Mr. Bittleston,
feeling fused.
" Then their is no doubt whatever that
you meant me," returned the- stranger,
■with a laugh, which his companions joined.
Mr. Bittleston started, and. stared nt the
Touug man, who bore his gaze unflinch
ingly. This Mark Avery was a tall, pow
■'-...-. ' ■-■' ■ ■;-
erful, Mack-whiskered young fellow, totally
different in appearance ■ from :; the slim,
modest,' retiring youth who claimed the
same appellation. It crossed Mr. Bittle
ston'? mind that . the party in the lock
were having a joke at his expense, and hi* ,
was about to resent the impertinence in
very forcible language when the inspector,
who had been standing by, touched him on
the arm. ,""-.-:. ;:*;/.• V.-.-, : -*" |
" That is Mr. Avery sure enough," said
the officer ; I've seen him before. That
being so, I think we had better sea what is
inside the portmanteau. It's precious
heavy," he added, seizing bold of it with
sudden interest
: Mr. Bittleston was too much nonplussed
to interfere, besides which he began to en
tertain disquieting suspicions. The in
spector proceeded nvith great dexterity to
unfasten straps of the portmanteau and in
the twinkling of an eye had mastered the
lock with a large stone. Upon his opening
the lid, an exciting exclamation burst from
the bystanders, for the contents of the port- 1
manteau proved to be the whole of the
articles of silver and jewelry which had
been stolen from Mr. Bittleston's safe.
"Hanged if I didn't think this was it," j
ejaculated the inspector ; "you put me off
the scent, by leading me to believe that
the parson who dined with you was an old
friend. You never told me you had enter
tained a stranger who had left his baggage,
or I should have not wasted the last day
or two." .
" I had no idea that — that the young
man was a swindler," murmured Mr. Bit
tleston, apologetically.
"I can see the game as .bar as day
light," said the inspector; "having recon- •
noitred the premises, he and bis pals do
the job neatly in the night. lie knows
the difficulty of getting away with the I
swag, and thinks he may be stopped and
searched by the police, in consequence of
having been in the house the day before i

you, and meanwhile he has made every I
arrangement to dispose of 'em."
"How fortunate! How miraculous ■" ;
exclaimed the old gentleman, beginning
to realize his good fortune; " but how was ;
it he didn't claim the portmanteau after
all ?"
" I rather fancy he caught sight of me I
on your lawn* and sheered off" said the in- ;
ape— or in high humor. "This is about I

won't come back, hut I think in the course

And oue like me or you.
The space was small, no doubt, for all.
but what should three bogs do?
i Three Mttle buss in a basket, "-iJs
And hardly crumbs for wo,
And all were selfish in their hearts,
The same as I or you.
Bo the strong one said, "we nvill eat the bread.
And that is what we'll do."
Three little bugs in a basket,
And the beds but tnvo would hold;
So they all three fell to quarreling—
The white, the black and the sold ,
And two of the- bugs got under the- rugs.
And one was out in the cold I
So he that was left in the bus i: 3t.
Without a crumb to chew.
Or a thread to wrap himself withal.
"When '.he wind across him blew.
Pulled one of the rugs from one of the bugs.
And so the quarrel grew I
And bo there was war in the basket
And pity 'tis, 'tis true I
But he that nvas frozen, and starved at last,
A strength from his weakness drew.
And pulled the rigs from both the bug"-,
And killed and ate them, too. :
Now, when bags live in a basket.
Though more than it well can hold,
It —tins to me they had better agree —
Tne white, the black and the gold—
And share what comes of bread and crumbs,

the same time making a whirring noise as
squirrels do. Instantly, three squirrels
come out of the tree; and running down
the trunk, they take the nuts she has in
[ her hand for them, and go up to a place
where the '".ranches divide. Then they sit
upon the landing while they crack and eat
them. ''Two of them arc very, tame," she
1 told us, "but one is very wild yet." As
I the tame ones had been ted, she pointed
i out to one of the topmost boughs, where
the "wild one*' sat looking down so very
wistfully. The little girl kept knocking
with the nut and whirring like a squirrel.
Soon the little creature timidly began to
conic down from its high tower, halting
and debating every now and then as it
came nearer and nearer to the uplifted nut.
At last it made one quick bound, snatched
the nut, and was off to a place of safety
again I The little girl told us they were
going to put a squirrel-house in the tree
and try to keep and feed them ail winter,
In the depths of a forest lived tnvo foxes,
who never had a cross word with each
other. < Ine of them said one day in the
j politest fox language:
" jet's quarrel."
"Very will," said the other, "as yon
please, dear friend ; but honr shall we set
about it*/"
"Oh, it cannot be difficult," said fox
number one- " Two-legged people fall out,
why should not we ?"
So they tried all sorts of ways, but it
could rot be done, because each would give
nvay. At Inst number one brought two
"There," said he, " you say they're
yours, and I'll say they're mine, an.i we
will quarrel and fight and scratch' Now
I'll begin. These stones are mine.''
'•' Very well," answered the other gently,
"you are welcome to them."
"But we shall never quarrel at this
rate," cried the other, jumping up and
licking his face.
"You old simpleton, don't you know
that it takes tnvo to make a quarrel any
day."— [Christian Weekly.

A little boy in New Jersey was climbing
an apple tree, and fell to the ground. He
was picked up in an insensible condition.
After watching by his bedside for some
time his mother perceived signs of
returning consciousness. Ijcaning over
him she asked him if there was any
thing she could do for him now that he
began to fool better. Should she bathe bis
forehead, or change his pillow, or fan him?
Was there anything he wanted ? Opening
his eyes languidly, and looking at her, the
little sufferer suid: "I'd like a pair of
pants with a pocket behind."
A farmer was sawing wood, when it
occurred to him that he ought to have the
help of one or more of his live boys. Lift
ing up Lis voice he called, but not a boy
appeared. At dinner, of course, all ap
peared, and it was not necessary to call
them. " Where were you all about two
hours ago when I wauled you and shouted
for you?" " I was in the shed settin' the
saw," said one-. "And 1 was in the barn
settin' a hen," said the second. " I was in
gran'ma's room settin' the clock," said the
third. "1 was in the garret ec-ttiu' the
trap," said the fourth. "Yon are a re
markable set," remarked the farmer. "Ami
where were you?" he continued, turning
to the youngest. " I was on the doorstep,
settin' still."
A View from the Moon.
From Professor I_ n-rley's illustrated ar
ticle on the " Planets and the Moon," in
his series on the " New Astronomy," in
the March Century, we quote the follow
ing : The truth is, however, that, locking
at the earth from the moon, the largest
moving animal, the whale or the elephant,
would be utterly beyond our ken ; and it is
questionable whether the larg— t ship on
j * s* timi_n ill i— "sis_.il isfj,,", -Ji ----—■ -- istr ■■!■ I ifcllfcSsl ._,_ *l!»—sijS>S»...isjlS«jSS»S.
the ocean would be visible, for the popular
idea as to the magnifying power of great
tele-scopes are exaggerated. It is probable
that under any but extraordinary circum
stances our lunar observer with our best
telescopes could not bring the earth within
less than an apparent distance of five hun
dred mile*! ; and the reader may judge lion*'
large a moving object must be to be seen,
much less recognized, by the naked eye at
such a distance. Of course, a chief inter
est of the supposition we are making lied
in the fact that it will give U3 a measure of
our own ability to discover evidences of
life in the moon, if there are any such as
exist here ; and in this point of view it is
worth while to repeat that scarcely any
temporary phenomenon due to humau ac
tion could be visible from the moon under
the most favoring circumstance-*. An army
■ such as Napoleon led to Russia might con
| ceivably be visible if it moved in a dark
solid column ncr&ss the snow. It is barely
possible that such a vessel as one of the
iargest ocean steamships might be seen,
: under very favorable circumstances, as a
moving dot; and it is quite probable that
such a conflagration its the great lire of
Chicago would be visible in the lunar tel
escope, as something like a reddish star on
the night side of our planet ; but this is
all in this sort that could be discerned.
By making minute maps, or, still better,
photographs, and comparing one year with
another, much however might have been
done by our lunar observer during this
century. In its beginning, in comparison
to the vast forests which then ccvered the
North American continent, the cultivated
fields along its eastern . seaboard would
have looked to him like a golden fringe
bordering a broad mantle of green ; but
now he would see that the golden fringe
has pushed aside the green farther back
than the Mississippi, and would gather bis
best evidence from the fact (surely a note
worthy one) that man, a.-, represented by
the people of tbe United States, has changed
one of tbe features of his world during the
present century to a degree visible in an
other planet!

Head Down. — About ten days ago
Canon Luisier and tnvo servants, who went
out on an expedition, narrowly escaped
exchanging the role of saviors for that of
victims. While still close to the Hospice
the Canon heard a sound he knenv only too
well— the thunder of a coming avalanche.
He bounded backward at the pas gymnas-;
tique, shouting at the same, time to the
two servant-' to do likewise. The ava
lanche passed without touching him, but
when be looked round his companions had
disappeared. The next moment, honvever,
one of them struggled out of a heap of
snow. But where was the other.' He
could neither bo Mien nor heard, ami the
survivors felt certain that ho was irrevoca
bly lost. After a second and longer look,
however, tiie Canon fancied he could see a
black mark on the snow Borne distance
away. They ran to the spot at once, and,
surely enough, the black mark was the lost
man's boot. The rest of him was buried
under the avalanche. An attempt to drat*
him out Ly the leg tailed — the weight of
snonr was too great. There was nothing
for it but to dig their companion out with
their hands. It was done only just in
time. He was quite insensible and recov
ered with great difficulty. A few seconds
more and he would have perished. The
man's name is Collomb ier, and this makes
the third time he has been overtaken by
tin avalanche and rescued, as by a miracle,
from the jaws of death. — [London Times.
