The Wearer or Ravel ee. A Geed Story ter the Christinas Tide . Ci.erge Eliet, Condensed. It was fifteen years since Silas Marner had ilist ce:ne te liavelec, and at the end of fifteen years Raveloe men said just the same things about him as at the beginning. He was subject te catalepsy, and te the villagers there was something- mysterious in these fits, as a fit was a stroke, and it was net in the nature of a stroke te let a man stand en his legs like a horse in the shafts and then walk off as seen as you cinsay "Gee." Se had his way of life inysteriens pecu liarities : he invited no comer te step across his doorsill, and he never strolled into the village te drink a pint at the Rainbow, and lie sought no man or woman, save for the pin pose of his calling or te supply himself with the necessaries of life. lie had knowledge of herbs and charms, tee, they thought and perhaps he was pesscssd of an evil spirit, se it was paitly te this vague fear that Marner was indebted for protecting him from persecu tion, and still mere than that, as linen weaver, his handicraft made him a highly welcome settler te the rich housewives of the district. There was only one impor tant addition which the years brought; it was that Master Marner had laid by a fine .siim of money somewhere. His life hail reduced itself te the mere functions el" weaving and hoarding. But about Clnistmas of that fifteenth year a gi eat change cune ever Manser's life, and his history became blended in a singular manner with the life of his neighbors'. The greatest man in Uaveloe was Squire Ca-s. One of his two sous, Dustan the .second, the uciuobers said it was no mat ter what became of him a spiteful, jeer ing fellow, whose taste for drinking, bet ting and swepping might turn him out te be a sewer of something worse than wild eats. Hut it would be a pity that Godfrey, the eldest, a fine, well-bred, 'geed-natured young man, should take the same read as his bi ether which he seemed inclined te de of late. Godfrey was in Dustan's power, as he had secretly married a coarse beauty, whee love of drink had made her an unlit companion for any one, and he lived in fear of his father learning the dreadful sectet and turning him adrift, ee Dustan made constant demands ou him for hush me twy. Driven te desperation by his prof ligate brother, he had given him permis sion te sell his favorite horse if he would make no mete demands upon him. Se Dustan i ode the herse te the races, and before he had a chance te sell, killed I he hoi sc and went from the ground in a di tihkcn penniless state. As he was plodding home through the dark he saw a light in Marncr's house. He knocked, but no one answered, and ou stepping in lie found it vacant. Wheic could be be, leaving his supper cooking and the deer unfastened. It was a dailr, rainy night, and perhaps he had gene out, for fuel and fallen into the stone pits. That was an interesting idea te Dustan. If the weaver was dead, who had a right te. his money .' Who would knew where hi.s money was hidden '.' Vho would knew that a'ljbedy had come te take the money away ? He saw a place near the loom where the sand had finger marks. He darted te it, lifted the bricks and found two leathern bags. He immediately left the house with the bags. The rain and darkness had get thicker, but he was heartily glad of it. Silas came seen after, and after getting warm he thought he would put his be loved guineas ou the tabic befere him, as it. would be pleasant te sec them as he ate his unwonted feast. Fer joy is the best of wine, and SilasS guineas were a golden wine of that sort. The sight of the empty hole made his heart leap, but the belief that his geld was gene could net conic at once. He had put his geld somewhere else and then forgot ten it. He turned his bed ever and looked in the brick even. He felt once mete all around the hole. He could sec every object in his cottage and his geld was net there. He put His hands te his head and gave a wild, ringing scream the cry of desolation. The cry had relieved him from the first maddening pi cssure. lie tettled towards his loom, and get into the seat whcie he worked, instinctive ly seeking this as the strongest assurance of reality. The idea of a thief began te present it self. He started from the loom te the deer. 1 Ic rushed out in the rain and made his way te the inn. There Silas told his story, under frequent questioning as the character of the lebbery became evident. The slight suspicion of his hcaiers melted away befete the simplicity of his distress. Dustan Cass had never been heard from, and en New Year's eve Squire Cass gave a large party. That night Godfrey's wife was walking with slew, uncertain steps through the snow-covered lanes of Ravelec cairying her child in her arms. Soen she felt numb with cold and fatigue ;nd then nothing but a supreme immedi ate lerging te lie down and sleep. The complete torpor came at last ; then fingers lest their tension, the arms unbent ; then the little head fell away from the besom, ai d the bhie eyes opened wide en the cold stai light. Suddenly its eyes were caught by a bright gleaming light en the white ground ; in an instant the child had slipped en all fours and held out one little hand te catch the gleam. But the gleam could net be caught, and the head was held up te see where the cunning gleam came from. It came from a very bright place ; and the little one rising en its legs went en te the open deer of Silas Marner's cottage, and right up te the warm hearth where Silas's coat lay en the bricks te dry. The little one squatted down en the coat, presently the warmth had a lulling effect, and the little golden head sank down en the old coat asleep. But where was Silas Mar ner? He was in the cottage, but he did net sec the child. lie had gene te the deer te leek cut, and put his right hand en the latch of the deer te close it but he did net close it, he was arrested by the invisible hand of catalepsy, and steed with wide but sightless eyes holding upon his deer, powerless te resist the geed or evil that might enter. When Marncr's sensibility returned he closed the deer, and turned towards the hearth, where, te his lurid vision, it seemed a3 if there were geed en the fleer in front of the hearth. Geld his own geld brought back as mysteriously a it had been taken away. He leaned forward at last and stretched feith his hand, but instead of the hard coin his fingers encountered soft, warm curls. Could this be his little sister come back te hirn in a dream? He had a dreamy feel ing tliat this child was somehow a mes sage come te him from far-off life. But there was a cry en the hearth, and Silas fed and seethed it. He found it had en wet hecs, which suggested te him that she must have come from out doers ; se he raised the child aud went te the deer and the little one cried mammy. Bending forward he could just discern marks made by the little feet, and he followed their track te the furze bush, and there he found a human body, with the head sunk low in the furze, and half covered with the shaken snow. Silas knew that all the town was at the grand party at the squire's se he carried the little one there in search of the doctor. The doctor, Godfrey, and a few ethers go te the stone pits, and there find that the woman is past help dead. They urged Silas te part with the chHd, but he presses it te him and says : " Ne, no ! I can't part with it. It's come te me I've a tight te keep it." It was a bright autumn Sunday, sixteen years after Silas Marner had found his new treasure en the hearth. The bells of the old Raveloe church were ringing the cheerful peal which told that the morning service was ended. He called her Eppie for his sister, and that morning, as they walked home together, in low, murmuring tones Eppic talked te him. ' Fathtr, if I was te be married, ought I te be married with mother's ring ?"' " Why, Eppic, have you been thinking ou it?" "Only this last week, father." -said Eppie, ingenuously, " since Aaren talked te me about it." "And what did he say?" said Silas. ' He said he should like te be married, beciuse he was going en four-and-twenty, aud had get a geed deal of gardening work new Mr. Mett's given up," " And who is it he'swantiugte marry?" said Silas, with rather a sad smile. "Why, me, te be sure, daddy," said Eppic, with dimpling laughter, kissing her father's click ; "as if he'd want te marry auybedy else." "And you mean te have him, de yen?" said Silas. "Yes, some time," said Eppic, "I don't knew when." . " Everybody's married some time," Aaren says. " But I told him that wasn't true, for I said : " Loek at father he's never becu married.' " " My child," said Silas, your father was a Ione man till you was sent home." 14 But you will never be a lone man again father," said Eppie, tenderly ; " that was what Aaren said," 4 1 could ncver think of taking you away from Master Marner, Eppie." " And," I said, " it nil be ei no use it you did, Aaren, aud he wants us all te live together as you needn't work, and he'd bi as geed as a son te you. But I don't want auy change. Only Aaren does want a change, and he made ine cry a bit b?c.i5ise he said I didn't care for him, for if I cared for him I should want us te be nnrrietl, as he did." 44 Oh, my blessed child," said Silas. 44 Yeu are o'er young te be married. But I shall get elder ami helpless, and I should like te have you marry somebody else be sides me somebody young and strong, as 'ud take e' you te the end." "Then you would like me te be married, father?" "I'll net be the man te say no, Eppie, but will ask your godmother. She'd wish the light thing by you aud her son, tee. And the godmother wished it. In draining the lauds the steuu pits were drained dry and the skeleton of Dns- Lten Cass was found and all of Silas Mar ner's geld, l''27". Se Aaren and Eppie en larged their garden and made pretty their home, as they did net wish te leave the stone pits, and Eppic's own words tell the story of their united happy life. "Oh, father, what a happy home ours is ! I think nobody could be happier than we." TJie Deacon's Turkey. A Christmas Story "With n Meral.

But thee was a great exctue for the wei lliy man ; for it must have been a very spirit ually minded person whose mouth would net have watered at the sight of such a i fowl as the deacon was fatting for the coin- j ing Christinas. ; That turkey, it is our candid belief, steed full four feet barefooted ; at what figure he turned the scale is net set down in the records of corpulent statistics, and we prefer net te shock the reader's credu lity by hazarding an opinion. Net old enough te be tough, but in the full per fection of completed adolescence, plump in contour without the grosser obesity of declining years, gifted with every gallina gallina cietts grace, he was indeed a biped te be proud OL New, while juicy visions wcic flitting , before the minds of expectant guests, aud mere than etic mature maiden was long ingly anticipating a tug at his wishbone, . the deacon's turkey oceanic a stumbling ' block of temptation in the way of Sam i Whipple and Dick Spangler a pair of light minded youths wle could sec a ' gieat deal of fun in :i very peer joke. j 44 What captal sport it would be te stial that turkey en Christinas lvc,'' suggested Sam, with a wink at Dick. 44 And get Tem Grill, the colored cook, te roast him, then call in a let of the boys ' and have a glorious time."' added the lat ' ter, Ther as we're both among the yeungsU'is invited te the decen's dinner, won't it be jelly te hear his lamentations ever the missing fowl? they'll beat out of sight all the sighs ever heaved for the flesh-pets of Egypt,'' chuckled Sam. 4"Ue! he! her' giggled Dick. . 44 Haw ! haw ! haw !' guffawed Sam. 44 Let's de it," said the one. 44 'Greed !" returned the ether. After laying their heads together half an hour, a plan was matured, and the two separated in great glee. The dcaceu's turkey n'Ohtc.l in the weed heuse, which hail a shutter opening en an adjacent alley, and fastened by a hook and staple inside. On a visit which Sam Whipple made te the premises en the next afternoon, under pretext of borrow rowing the deacon's sawbuck, he man aged slyly te undo the hook, thus leav ing the way clear for the night's opera tiens. At a safe hour after d.nk the conspir ators started en their errand, li.-.st casting lets te decide which should enter the woedhousc and bring oil" the prize, aud which should keep wat.:h -the former task falling te Sam, aud t!:c latter te Dick. 44 Yeu stand here," said Sam, as they ncared the mouth of the alley. Dick took his station, and Sam, ad vancing stealthily, seen reached the shut ter, which he had no difficulty in opening. Then climbing in, he was nt long in find ing the object of bis search. 44 Put! put!" squawked the turkey, and flop, Hep, went hia wings, as Sam grasped his legs and pulled him down from his perch. After a sharp scuffle, Sam was triumph ant, and held his gebblcrship fast under one arm and securely gagged with the Other hand. The noise of the struggle had aroused the deacon's deg, who growled and bai ked fiercely-; but Sam kept quiet and scen all was still. 44 Is that you, Dick?" he whispered, as he heard steps approaching softly out side. 4 'Yes,' was the answer in the same tone. "Here, take him," said Sam, passing out the turkey, which the ether received. then climbing out himself, which took a little time, for he moved cautiously, he toeKca aoeut ter Uick, bnt neither he nor the turkey was in sight. He walked up aud down the alley, but the search was in vain. "Well, I call thata shabby trick !" mut tered Sam44 after my taking all the risk, tee. But maybe he'll turn up all right in the morning. He had better, 1 tell him." Se saying, Sam walked sulkily home. .Next morning bright and early, he started in search of Dick, whom he met shortly apparently en a similar hunt for him. 44 Where's that turkey ?" was Sam's first question. "Where i3 he yourself ?" retorted Dick. "I handed him out te you," returned Sam. 44 YeudidnV'rcplied the ether. "When the deg barked I dodged around the cor ner. When I came back. I went up te the woedhousc, aud called you as loudly as I daied, but you had gene." " That's tee thin,7 replied Sam. " What de you mcaii?" "That you've turned traitor, and made away with the tin key." " That's a lie !" Fer the space of tluee minutes there was a rapid and promiscuous motion of four fists, at the cud of which time Sam hauled elf with a blackened eye .and Dick with a bloody nose. Beth seemed te have had enough for the present, and then went their rcspactive ways. When, at the appointed hour, they sev erally entered the deacon's parlor Hjach fearing that if he stayed away he would be liable te suspicion Sam had concealed his damaged optic with a pair of goggles, worn, he said, for sere eyes brought en by execssive study, aud Dick accounted for his swollen nose en the ground of a vio lent catarih. The deacon, se far from appearing chop-fallen, looked unusually cheerful, and when the guests walked in te diuner, what was Sam's aud Dick's astonishment te see at the pest of honor en the table the finest, fattest and biggest turkey that ever aroused mortal heart te ecstacy. 44 1 tell you what friends," said the dea con, when he had finished saying grace, 44 we have mere te be thankful for than most of veu are yet aware of. Yeu don't knew wl at a narrow escape we've had from losing the best part of our dinner. Last night I heard the deg bark, and going d&wn the alley baek of the woedhousc, found the shutter open. Somebody whis pered, 4Is that you, Dick ?' 4Ycs,' I an swered ; for you knew my name is Rich ard. 'Here, take him,' said the other,hand ether,hand ing out the turkey, which I quietly took and bore away." The mystery between Sam and Dick was thus cleared up, but happily net, as we have seen, till they had sufficiently pun ished one another. Frem a twinkle in the deacon's eye, they mera than half sus pected that lie knew all. At any rate, neither Sam nor Dick ever ventured again te visit Edith Turner, the deacon's pretty daughter, who, six months after married nuethcrand, let us hope, a better man.
