It wai directly made uianifeat that I mutt diaiuounl or be carried inlo tbe breikert.

I iplaibed my way out to the beach and laughed In ruy turn at brown Meg aud ber Waaler, who emitted in concert undry Indetcribable noKei between a cough aud a ueeze. Well, my fine fellow, when you btve recovered gravity we will resume our journey. Preciou uonteunel added Her riea, to come down here at all. We might have skirted the bluff at a respect able dletitice aud not cut all theae antic. And gone three mile round Cobhatn Gully j-aiuce we ouldn't fly acroael Pbbaw, mau ; you're not hurt, aud I've tbe worst of tbe bargain, after all. Now to get rouud Helmet Hock before the tide turn. 1 whiatled to Cherelgnac, who came nhoreward, roaring and plunging like tome black ea tnonater. He wa drip ping wet, but the lower half of my body quite agreed wilb him, o I eprun to the eaddle and cared for naught. We rode eeaward down tbe long narrow promon tory round the base of Helmet Rock, which was only passable at low water. The reck itself rote theer eighty feet from Ibe tand, aud interec(ed the amootb itretch of beach that lay between n and the cabin of a frontienman named Nixon where we hoped to find accommodation for tbe night. Neither of oa knew tbe way, tare a directed by o old miner named Caltab. Cheveignac, taking tuperb ttride around Ibe corner of tho rock, and breathing additional exhilaration in every breath of Ibe wild tea wiud, very nearly r.i' over a tall man standing on tbe nar row way and scanning the horizun wilb a faceof painlul mnielv. I reiaed up, apolog'iK'ri, tin inquired if the stranger' name wits Nixon; for 1 saw not 200 jartla awy a long, low cabin in the abet ter of a liuye ruck lie said il waa, and incur abaip, coHipri'heUrive glance of crutiny, look u and our animals in Irmn bead to liel.

Hospitality was tbe prevailing virtue of bi clas. Tbere is danger, answered Nixon, sig nificantly. l'oob, mau! Do we look as if we feared danger? Give us some bacon and potatoes, and we'll face any reasonable danger that any man may, aud live, i" up per, at least, if not tbelter. Just as you say, said Nixou indiffer ently. Ou'y remember I warned you, and be !! ibe way at a dug Irot along the beacb. Ibe bacon and potatoes were forth coming, and disappeared In marvelous faebiou belote our savage onset. While our bust attended to our horses, we fuuud Iti.ure to louk aboal us. Ti e cabin was au unusually roomy one; at least eight een by twenty. Tbe usual accoutre msut of a hunter aud fi.btrman were placed about. There was evidence ol a woman' presence aud taste, but we bad seen no woman. A kind of uncomfort able stillness reigned' broken only by (be eeaaelrkB roll of the turf. A aingle ray of ligbt bruadeued aud bright .nd ttiroBs-b tbe ote window : it was (be moon rising. We coaveraed In whisper, woudering wbat danger uieuaced, and uudeeiJi-J wbeiber to stay or resume our Jnuroey. Ii's go, said Herriet, uneasily, at la.l; I don't like the danger that strike oue lu IU ds:k. Let go on to Uuvey's, if only five mikH farther dowa tb eotsf, and tbe Ca'taba fellow said it was all plain traveling. Of a sad Jen, with o toooj la tbe toft sttvd, a black, brindled bead and browa and white aose appeared before tbe balf opea door! Wiib a baad oa each, Nixon stood betweeu tbe in. We stared. Men, said our beat with gravity, you're from old Massachusetts. I can't recon cile your staying ta my conscience. You've geod berse, aud they've fed and retted. Aud you've half an boor's atart. Of wbat? taid 1, wilb a ttrauge creep of Indefinable apprebentiou. Death, answered Nixon, solemnly. We looked at each ot!ir. What do you meant Speak out mau, said llerrle. Thirty men- more or less will bo bete wltbia half aa boor. This cabin will go up la smoke, and I aban't probably come out alive. I angered 'em once and they are a savage gang. Saved ao eld chap and bis darter out of their bands. Tbe girl we handsome. He aald as bow ibe Lord wouldn't never forget It; but J guess be has. Why don't you clear out? and we look ed at our revolvers. Nixon stepped close and whispered, My wife, gentlemen, sprained herself, leu day ago, and can't even creep. They (hot my horse and broke up my boat She' bid now. I shall bide with her. If they tud ui well. Now go, gentlemen, luakebaite! Bring ber here, mau be quick I Pll take ber behind uie.

The very brutes seemed restless and uneasy. lie was uses presently, carrying a slender form lu a big shawl. L'p with you, be muttered, and loaned her lightly to Cheveignac' back. A pale, woru face looked over my shoulder aud nervous band clasped my belt. Nixon sprung up behind Hemes, and the two horses started side by side. Sweet beaveu, where was the broad, safe foot-way by which we bad skirted the base of Helmet Rock, not two hours ago? There was uow naught but a turg iug sea; aud long Hues of lavage, sheet' ed breakers upieared themselves and smote ball way up tbe solid ruck with a continuous roil of tbuuder. Lord above!, wo can't go lierel The other way dowu Ibe coast to Hovey'sl exclaimed Hen its, reigning brown Meg on ibo ede. Death lies (bete! Wbat, stiauger, don't yoti eee?

The poor creature behind me gasped aud bid ber face on tuy shoulder. I halted, whipped out a piece of rope, and bound ber securely to myself; then a moment after, the black, chilling water drove the breath nearly out of us. Chev eignac swam nobly. The tide was set ting in, and he fought against it with every nerve and muscle. Slowly, slowly tbe black-crested cliff retreated shore ward aud the long turf Hue on the beacb beyond came to view. Look behind you! cried Herrles, a the horses (warn abreast. 1 turned. Torches ran hither and thither, all over Ibe beach; shout aud imprccatiou came fitiutly to our ears. The good Lord keep the moon in that cloud ball an hour more. Not a minute too soon, ssid Nixou. And we turned the cliff in a wide sweep and swept shoreward with tbe tide. Here we ate. Now, men, we're like to come on 'em for a lung stretch. How are e, Men ? Peel as if ye cm 1,1 pull through? Oii)es, )es. Do prsy hurry.

To jour left, siratiger! the path! do you see it? broke in Nixon, sharply, holding Herriet' waist with one hand, aud gesticulaiing with ibe other. II was an easy slope, not like the treach erous path by which we bad descended; aud I thanked Coil when my brave horse put foot on hard sod. Stranger, what is your borse good for? asked Nixou, hurriedly. Hoof-beats came through Ibe irets, lurches dauced, bullets whistled shout our bead,. For a cae of life or death, said I short ly. Away with you then and save her. my way. You know tbe road you came froui Ctlsaba? Uegoue! Go, for God's sake, lfaif, taid Herriet, urging Meg to ber utmost. 1 let the rein lute and spoke to my brave black. Like tn arrow from Ibe J bow we left brown Meg bebiud. Leve1 j htek, wide nostril, back-laid eait and muscles of steel. I felt Ibe ceaeeleit, mighty heart-brats, and beard Ibe rapid, moiioiouuut thud, thud of hoofs, at the j wind swept my face, and trees, rocks, bilis, shot paet and vanished in tbe dim : ligbt l:ke Ibe ptiautasmtgoria of a vi.ion. j The woman behind me faltered aud 1 swtjed.

Three bourt later Herriet aud Nixou joined me, I think in bit gratituJe the latter would have pressed upou us every atom of tbe f.'i, 000 wortb of gold-dust and nuggets which he had secured on bs pertou and brought safely away.

Ooo lime Mr. Ilarnnm wanted a giraffe for hit big thow a real live giratfi", not a stuffed fellow with a glass eye, like the one be carted round last jesr. And so be hired au Englishman, who wat a great hunter of all torts of foreign animals, to go to Africa aud tee if he could catch one alive. The hunter got togetber everything be wauled and ttarted. In about two months he came to tho country where the giraffes live a beau tiful laud It Is loo, where il It never cold, and there aro palm trees, and all sort of birds, aud moukeyt, parrots, leopards, and liout, aud where the woods are like a big animal thow without auy cages. Xhehuuter tooti found a negro village, where the native said they knew all about the giruffiis. Hut they only grinned ami shook their wouley head when he told ihem he wanted ouo alive; aud one of them ran very fast, with great long steps, and then stopped and kicked up his heels which was his way of tell ing the hunter how the giraffe acted. Hut be had brought along a iwift horse, and Bom long, stout slip-noose lassos, besides his guns aud dogs, and said he'd show 'em how to bunt. So tho next day bo started out with six or eight negro hunters to help him. Tbey trotted along by the river bank for a few miles, till tbey came to the woods where the giraffes were feeding, and pretty soon saw two big fellows, about fourteen feet tall, browsing off tho tops of the young trees, whose teudur leave they like. 1 lie hunter knew ho couliln t get at them without being seen, bocsuse (he gi raffes have a very large, full eye, and can seo ou all sides, and even back of himself as he needs to keep out of the way of lions and leopards. So he called to the ucgroet to follow, and rode iIkI'I at the giraffe, with his slip-noose coiled up in his baud. They can run as fast as a bone; bnt thoso bad never seen a horse before, and didn't know what to make of it. So, as they stood looking, the hunter rode up within about fifty feet, and let fly his lasso. It went right over the short, stout lion s of one of them, and he pulled it light. So, ho! can't catch a giraffe? said he. Just look and see what an Englishman can do. But in about a minuto he wished he was back in England, or somewhere else; for be had fastened one end of bis lasso to Ids horse's tsddlo, and as tho giraffe started to run be pulled the horse toward him, and (hen all of suddeu be wheeled and let fly his (wo bind legs, and kicked the hote smack in the breast. Tbe blow sent bout and hunter rolling in tbe sand; the laaao broke, and awsy wetil the giraffe at a 2:40 gait into the l.'OOlU. All tbe natives ant up a chsiler ot laughing, unit showed ivory enough to iinkekets for a piano. Hut tho hunt er was plucky, ami wssu'l to be slopped -o though he sid lli bi't was the buia" eat-rHni-.kli'k'r be ever saw, Hint IiriI more I'lin a tori t-iimie power in lii legs. He limped luck to the viHiife, ami said he'd iry again. So next lUy be (hi: I up four Ioiij; tas- soa, and look only three of the heel na tive biitiiers vtiili liiin lor what he called a aiil! hunt. He ifot silit of four or live more giraffes, ami watched them till they went to lay down lor the night. Then, when il was nearly dark, be told the uegroes to follow him, and do Jusl as he did. So they all crawled carefully on their baud and knees af'.er bim, and went so slow and a'ill that even the deer could hardly hear I hem. Tbe giraffe tin down, you know, very like a csniel with bis fore legs sticking out. Tbe buuter told one of the nek-roes lo take one leg, and be would tbe other, when Ibey got near enough, and slip a lasso over it, and wind the other end around a tree. They both did il at tbe same time. Ami when (be girsffd went to jump up, as he felt the rope tighten, be fo tiu J be uad but two leira to stand on for the men jerked his bind legs out from under him, and let bim dowu ker slap on ibe ground. He snorted and naureil. and Ifiiiitn-d tin and felt down litl i 4 , -r - j be was tired out; but (he ropes weiei strong, and held him fast. ) Tbey watched him all night, and In ihej morning ibtew bim some fie-b gia-s io eat. lint be was so uiaJ and scared that ; be wouldn't est any ail day. Tbe uei day Ibe hunter untied the ropes from tits tree, and btd five or six negroes lakej bold ofeacU one, while be started to; tame the girafl.-. As long at he walked j along quietly the men folio wtd hi in with i rapes; but the minute be started to rou or kirk, tbey would ail pull togetber, aud : down Mr. Gireffj would go into the; tand. Ho toon got sb k of ibis, and gave op the figbt.

However, he might as well givo lliu iiIiiiiiiho plan un otber trial, aud setting the sheep iu mo tion, ho began to count. This lime bo reached 210, mid would prolmbly have got to sleep before Ibo 30Oih sheep jump ed Imd not Mix's new dog in the next yard, become suddenly homesick, and begun to express his feelings In a series of prolonged and exasperating bowls. Hutterwick was indignant. Neglect ing bis sheep, be leaped from bed, ami began to bombard Mix's new dog with boots, soap-cups, and every looe object he could lay his hands on. I In bit the animal at lust with a plaster bust of Dan iel Wcbslcr, and induced the dog to re treat to the stable, Htid think ubout home in silence. It seemed almost ridiculous lo resume those sheep again, but ho determined to give tho altnatiRc man ono more cbauce, aud so as they began to jump tbe fence he began to count, and after seeing (he S2d ebeep safely over, he wat gliding in to tbe laud of dreams, when Mrs. Hut terwick rolled out of bed, aud fell on tbo floor with such violcnco that she waked tbe twins and Mailed them crying, wliilo Hutterwick' mother-in-law catim down staira, four steps at u lime, to a-k il they lull Unit ttartliqnake.
