Christina was troubled by Sophy's conti
dence, but she thought it premature to
disturb Andrew's serene faith in the girl
be loved. He was, as his mother said,
very "touchy" about Sophy, being quite
aware that the women of Pittencraigle did
not approve the change in her. "And so
many things happen as the clock goes
round." she thought. "Braelands may put
himself out o' favor, or he may tak' him
self off to some far awn' country, or 'them
behind' may sort what I canna manage;
sae I'll just keep a shut mouth anent the
matter; ore n:ay think, what one daurna
say, but words aince spoken canna be
wiped out wi' a sponge."
Christina had also reached a crisis in
her own life. The feeling between Jamie
Lauder and herself was that eager love
which begins with love, and a week after
Sophy's visit Jamie had found his oppor
tunity to teach Christina the secret of her
own heart. Sitting on th3 lonely rocks,
with the meonlit sea at their feet, they
had told each other how sweet it was to
love, and the plans growing out of this
confession, though humble enough, were
full of strange hcpe and happy dreaming
to Christina. When Jamie got his berth in
the great Scotch line she was to become
his wife. Then she would have to make
"Then I'Il be Capt. Binnie of the
North Sea fleet."
her home in Glasgow, and these two facts
were stupendous ones to the simple fisher
girl, and scarcely less so to her mother,
who was both pleased and fearful in the
"It's a grand thing for Christina," she
said to her crony, Marget Roy, "and the
lad is a respectable lad, handsome and
weel spoken o', and I'm thinking the line
has got a bargain in him, and is proud o'
it; still I'm feared for my bairn, in such a
wicked-like place as Glasgo'. But she'll
hae a floor o' har aim, and a' things con
venient, and that's some safety and com
fort. She's my one lassie, and I'm sair to
lose her, but we canna stop the clock, and
ye ken. Marget, that marriage is like death
-it is what we must a' come to."
"Weel, Janet, your Christina has been
lang spared from It."
"Christina has bad her offers, but what
will you? We must wait for the right
man or go to the de'il wI' the wrang one."
"You'll he lanely enou' wanting her, for
rm hearing Andrew Binnie isna to be
kept single much langer, and Sophy Traill
canna fill Christina's shoes."
"Sophy's weel enou'. She suits An
drew, and it is Andrew has to live wi'
"And you, too, mistress."
"Not 1. Andrew is to build his aln
bigging. I hae the life rent o' mine. But
I'll be a deal in Glas.o' mysel'. Jamie
has his heart fairly set on that."
She made this statement with an air of
prideful satisfaction, and Mistress Roy
was not inclined to let her enter anew
into all the fine sights she was to see, the
grand guns of preachers she was to hear
and the trips to Greenock and Rothesay,
which, Jamie said. "would just fall natur
ally in the way o' their ordinary life."
"I'll be going," said Marget, abruptly.
"I hae the kirkyard to pass, and between
the day and the dark It's a mournfu' spot."
"It is," answered Mistress Binnie. "Folks
shouldna be on the road when the bodiless
gang aboot; they are like to be in the way
o' them and might get Ill to themsel's.
And here comes Jamie and Christina, and
uae doubt they'll be wanting a mouthfu',
for love is cold porridge."
But Jamie wos off to the boats in a
hurry and Christina was not hungry; she
sat down with her mother to talk over
again what they had discussed a hun
dred times before-the wedding dress and
the wedding feast, and the napery ,and
plenishing she was to have for her own
home, and homehow as they talked thus
confidentially Christina told her mother
what Sophy had said about Archie Brae
For a moment Janet Binnie was glad;
then she lifted the poker and struck a
block of coal into a score of pieces, and
with the blow scattered the unkindly, self
ish thoughts which had invaded her heart.
"It is what I expected," she answered,
gloomily; "but say naething to Andrew.
He is wise enou' to tak' his aim way,
though God knows nane can piay the fool
like a wise man! But what then? Is
there anything to gain by word or warn
ing? Naething. And if Andrew is to
has the fling and the buffet, he will tak'
it better from Sophy than from any ither
body. Let be, Christina."
"Folkg will talk a non."
"'They ars talking already. Do you think
I didna hear this clash before? Lucky
Sims and Marget Roy. and every fish wife
In Pittencraigie ken the beginning and the
end o' it. They haa seen this, and they
hae heard that, and they think the very
worst that can be. The first calamity is to
be born a woman, and it sets the door open
for every other sorrow, the mair so if the
less Is bonnie and alane in the world. For
mysel' I'm thinking nae wrong o' Sophy;
it's Andrew that is in fault. He's that
set on having a house for his wife that
he'll lose the wife, while he's saving the
sier for the house. I hae told him, and
better told him, to bring Sophy here, but
naething but having her a' to himsel' will
he hear tell o'. It's piure wicked selfish
ness in the lad! He canna thole her giving

"Whist, mother! I'm thinking he's most

"Tlhen t'm awa' to Lizzie Robertson's.
My heart is knocking at my lips, and Il
be saying what I'll want to unsay. Keep a
calm rough, Christina. Let Andrew do the
talking, and you'll be a' right."
Andrew entered with that air of strength
and capability so dlear to the women of a
household. He had on his kIrk suit, and
Christina thought as he sat down by the
open window how much handsomer he
looked in his blue Guernsey and fishing
c'ap. "You'll be needing a mouthfu', An'
airew?" she asked, but Andrew shook hIs
head, and answered: "I had my tea wi'
Sophy. Where is mother?"
"She's awa' to Lizzie Robertson's. The
bairn is still sick, and mother wl i yi
till the night turns." vlsibyt
"He said he was going to the fishing.
Ho'll hae caught the boat, or he would hae
been back here again."
"TI en we're ottr lane, and I've been seek
i~pg this hour. I hae things to tell you,
Christina. that must go no further--not
even to mother-unless the time comes.
I'll not ask you to gie me your word.
You're Christina Binnie, and that is
"That is enough, Andrew. You and me,
and1 God our witness."
"Christina. I hae been this day to Edin
burgh. I hae ?600 in my pocket, besides
the siller ben the house. I hae sold three
shares in the 'Sure-Giver' and as you ken,
I've been saving sier ever since I first
put on my sea boots."
"I has thought, saving siller, was your
nea fault Andrew."
"I ken fine that it is my besetting sin.
Many's the time I hae forced mysel' to give
a white shilling instead o' a penny Lit at the
kirk door; just that I might get the better o
the dell. But I hae been saving for a pur
pose, and now rm most ready to tak' my
desire. What think you? I am going to
put my siller in a carrying steamer-ane o'
the Red-White fleet-and I'm to be her
skipper, and sail her from the North Sea
to London. She'll hold three thousand
'trunks' of fish in her ice chambers, and
with good weather I'll make London in
forty hours at the outside. Then I'll be
Capt. Binnie o' the North Sea fleet, and
Sophy will hae reason enough for her mus
lins and ribbons and trinkums-trankums.
God bless her!"
"I'm proud to hear tell o' it, Andrew. If
you hae the siller and the skill, why
shouldn't you lift yoursel' a bit? Sophy
willna shame any place you put her in-and
you may own a fishing fleet yoursel' some
"I'm thinking o' it,". he answered, with
the air of a man who feels himself master
of his destiny. "Come wi' me, Christina."
He led her into the Inner room, moved
aside a heavy chest of tlrawers and lifted
a short plank beneath them. Then putting
his arm far under the flooring he pulled
forth a locked tin box, and, opening it, dis
played to Christina a hoard of sovereigns
and Bank of England bills. The money in
his pocket was added to this treasured
store, the flooring and drawers replaced,
and then, without a word, the brother and
sister left the room together. There was a
look of exultation on Christina's face as
Andrew asked: "You understand now,
"I hae seen," she answered, "and I ken
weel that Andr ew Binnie Isna moving with
"I'm not moving at all for three months
or longer. The ship I want is in dry dock
until the winter, and it's the siller I am
anxious about. If I should go to the fishing
some night and never come back it would
be the same as if it went down with me
not a soul but mysel' knowing it was there.
But I'll be happier now, for if that thing
happens you must tak' the money out o'
hiding and give Sophy Traill one-half o' it,
and the other half is for mother and your
self. And, above a' things, I charge you
never to name to mortal creature the
whereabouts o' the hiding."
"Your wordls are in my heart, Andrew,
and they'll never pass my lips."
"That's enough o' the siller then. I have
had a happy day, Christina. Sophy was
wi' me to Edinburgh, and the beauty o'
her! And the sweet ;nrocence and love
cemeness o' her ways! I bought her a ring
wi' a shining stone in it; and a gold brooch,
and a bonnie piece o' white muslin, with
the lace for the trimming o' it; and the joy
0' the lassie set me laughing wi' delight!
I wouldna call the queen my cousin this

"And you can trust her without a doubt,

"That's the way to trust. It's the way I

tongues are aye ready to gie one a sense
"They canna gie me a moment's trouble.
Kirsty Johnson called after me this morn
ing-"rak' tent to yoursel', Andrew Binnie;
a beauty is harit to catch and waur to
keep'-and I didna answer her by word or
look, for I ken weel woman's tongues
canna be stopped, not even by the fourth
Never had Christina felt so happy as on
this night. Jamie had been so tender, so
full of anticipation, so proud of his love
and his future, and Andrew had chosen
her for h!s confidante. But some divine
necessity of life ever joins joy and sorrow
together. and while her heart was bounding
with gladness she heard footsteps that gave
it a shock. They were Jamie's footsteps,
and even while Andrew was speaking he
entered the cottage. Andrew looked at
him with a quick suspicion, and said,
dourly:""You said you would tak' my
place. I see you canna he trusted."
"I have earned a reproof, Andrew, but
I'll no lie about the matter. I met a friend,
and he was poor and thirsty, and I took
him to the tavern and gave him a bite and
a sup. Then the whisky set us talking, and
I forgot the tiehng, and the boats went
awa' without me."
"A nice- lad you'll be to trust in a big
ship full o' men and women. A glass o'
whisky and a crack In the 'public' set
afore your word and your duty! Iow will
I trust Christina wi' you?. When you mak'
Andrew Birnie a promise he expects you
to keep it. Dina forget that. It may be
o' consequenc to ycu." With these words
he went into hi- own room and bolted the
door, and Jamie sat down by Christina and
waited for her to speak. But she could not
be as friendly as she wished. It was love
out of time, and place and season. She
would rather he had been with the boats,
and her mind also was full of Andrew's
revelation; she -wanted to be alone to real
ize all that it meant. So the interview was
cold and constrained, and Jamie was of
fended, and finally went away quite out of
temper. He kicked the stones in the path
out of his way, muttering angrily: "I'm no
caring! I'm no caring! The moral pride o'
thae Binnies is ridie'lus! One would re
ouire to be a vera saint to come within
sight o' them."
This cloud was, however, but a passing
one, and the next few weeks went by, as
time does go when Love and Hope brighten
every hour. The fishing season was un
usually good, the men were making money,
and the women had Christina's marriage
"AI s- h nr 'i.
and ma rrage presents to talk about. Every
now and then some relative sent her a
piece of home-spun linen, or a quilt, or
some chin, awl' each article was examined
and discuesed by all the wives and maids
in Pxtten'eraigie. Christina and her mother
had no objec ti-ms to this kind of popular
ity; nor wais .lamle averse to the good
Andrew's love affairs were not as prom
ising. Sophy came less and less to the vil
lage; she snid "her aunt had gone to Perth
for a hit of holiday, and the shop couldna
be left to tak' care o' itself;" and the ex
cuse seemedl to b~e a good one. At any
rate, It satisfled Andrew. Hie made a deal
of money during the fishing season, and
nas evidently, to Christina, preparing for
some great change. He went frequently to
Edinburgh, an'l on his return always gave
her a glance full of the assurance of suc
cess. And for- some weeks he appeared to
be very happy with Sopby; then there was
a, sudden change, and Christina noticed
that he often camne hack from Largo with
a heavy step aid a grave face. Occasion
ally ho admitted he had b'een "sairly dis
appointed"--Sop'hy had gone away for a
week's rest, or she had a headache and
couldna see him; or there was a bride's
dress making, and she couldna spare a mo
rcent; the excuses were numerous and va
ried, and finally they began to cause a sad
and fearing woi der even in Andrew's trust
One morning ,.n early October Jamie got
his long-booked-for appointment, and he ran
Chriatina and bid her "good-bye." And his
joy was so great as he kissed. her tears
away and be spoke so kindly to Mistress
Binnie and so bravely to Andrew that it
was impossible to feel anything but a glad
excitement in his departure. After he was
fairly out of sight, Andrew called Christina
to the top of the cliff, and they sat down
together. It was an exquisite morning, full
of the salt and sparkle, the motion and
burst of the sea, and they sat slant-awhle,
looking down on the cottages, the creels
and the grown nets, the picturesque fig
ures in sea boots and striped hanging caps
and the no less ptesgque companion fig
ures in striped petticoats. Some of the
latter were old women, and wore. high
crowned, unbordered caps; others were
young ones, with no covering on their ex
uberant hair, but with long rings in their
ears and bright scarlet kerchiefs on their
sneks. Andrew glanced from these things
to his sister, and touching her striped pet
"You'll be charnging that soon for what.
they ca' a gown. I am going to buy you a
silk gown for your wedding, Christina."
"You'll set me up beyond everything, if
you do, Andrew. I'll never ergot such a
"Christina, I'm no' very happy mysel'."
Then he told her plainly hod' difficult he
found it to get sight or speec with Sophy,
and how low-spirited she wis wjth him.
"I'm feared she's ill," he d drearily.
"You ken her mother died o' i consumption
when she was but a young ting."
"Andrew, hae you told Sop y what your.
plans are? Hae you told he she may be
a lady and live in London rme o' these
days? Has you told her y fi'll be Capt.
Binnie o' the North Sea Meet?
"Nae, nae! What would I be the lassie
for? It Is plain Andrew B e she has to
"You're a' wrang, Andre#. Girls like
men that hae the spirit to Ein siller and
place for them. Tell her wha$ you told me,
and you'll be a happy man "
This argument Christina un' so skillfully
that Andrew was fired by er confidence
and enthusiasm. "I'll tak' yeir advice and
go and tell Sophy," he said, "The lassie
has grown into my life as ti4 sea and the
stars and my hame and myV ain folk has
grown, and if sh'll love me better for the
news, I'm that far gone In "love ws' her,
that I must win her by anty means pos
He went on this errand at love with a
light heart, and then Chrlstitsa sought her
mother. "Andrew is going to gle me a
silken gown for my wedding," she cried,
jaerfully, and the two women spent the
morning in talking over the most desirable
color, and the necessity of having so fine
a garment made in Largo. After the noon
meal Janet Binnie took her knitting and
went to tell her neighbors ' uout the silk
gown, and Christina did tI, ironing, and
as she smoothed the linen s. 'i sang a verse
or two of "Hunting Tower' and then she
thought awhile and then sh. sang again.
She did not expect Andr4v home until
the evening. He would likei have his tea
with Sophy and walk back siterwards. But
in mid-afternoon she heard hi, step and she
put down thr iron with 4 sudden faint
feeling and turned her facj to the door.
Andrew entered the cottage looked at her
despairingly, and sinking I to his chair,
covered his wretchcd face 4th his hands.
It was not the same man w o had left her
a few hours before. A chinge like that
which a hot iron would make upon a fresh
leaf had been made in ?er handsome,
happy, hopeful brother. t11e could not
avoid an exclamation that iwas a cry of
terror, and she went to him and kissed
him and murmured, she krii.w not what,
words of pity and of love. He began to
weep, to sob, to shake and :remble like a
rend in a tempest. She close, the door, and
slipped the bolt in it, and ca'%e back to his
side. "Andrew: my brother .Andrew," she
said, softly, "what sorrow hin come to you?
"Sophy's dead-dead and Bane for me!
Oh. Sophy, Sophy. Sophy!"
"Andrew. tell me a straight tale. You're
no' a woman to let your rerrow get the
mastery ' you. And if iINphy has de
ce'ved and left you, there Is still the Faith
ful One, who changeth not"
Then he straightened hirkself and un
fastened the kerchief at his throat, and
Christina opened the- windolv and let the
fresh breeze blow upon $lim. And her
heart throbbed hotly with apger and pity.
"Speak anti let your grief Yae some way,
Andrew." she said. "Did yo&1 see Sophy?"
"I saw her. I met her 'dr ving in a dog
cart wi' the master o' Brielands. I saw
her looking in his face as slie never lookit
in my face. She never loved me you way,
"Did you speak to her?'
"Ay. She was going to pass me with
out word or look, but I called out to her,
'Sophy! Sophy!' and I saw her crudel close
to Braelands, and I saw him lift the whip
to strike the horse, and afore I kent what I
was doing I had the beast by the head and
the lash o' the whip stung me clear across
the cheek bone."
"Ay. I see the marks o' it."
"Braelands called out: ''Tis your ain
fault, fishernan; the lash was meant for
the horse;' and I was In a passion-and I
shouted a word I shouldna hae said, and
id Sophy get out o' the cart and come to
me, and Braelands cried, 'Dinna dare to
ca' this lady Sophy; she'll be my wife
anon;' and then she gied a little scream
and covered her face-for nae doubt she
was frightened-and he struck the horse
again and the creature bounded for'ard
and I fell on my back and the wheels o'
the cart grazed the soles o' my shoon as
they passed me. I dinna ken how laug I
"The wicked lass!"
"You arena able to judge her, Christina."
"But you can judge Braelands. Get a
warrant the morn for the scoundrel."
"And mak' Sophy the common talk for
far and near? How could I wrang Sophy
to right mysel'?"
"But tb whip lash! The whip lash,
Andrew! You canna thole the like o' that."
"There was One tholed for me, the lash
and the buffet and answered never a word.
I can thole the lash for Sophy's sake. A
poor-like love I would hae for Sophy If I
put my ain pride afore her good name. If

He was white through all the tan of
wind and sea and sun, and the sweat of
his suffering stood In great beads on his
pallid face and brow. Christina lifted a
towel she had just ironed and wiped it
away, and he said feebly: "Thank you.
I'll go to my bed a wee'. I can think no
mair, I can suffer no matr, till I get
So Christina opened the door of his room
and he tottered In. swaying like a drunkan
man, and threw himself upon his bed. Five
minutes afterwards she stepped softly to
his side. He was sunk In deep sleep,
fathoms below the tide of sorrow, whose
wave and billows had gone over him.
*'Thanks be to the Merciful!" she whis
pered. "When the sorrow is too great,
then He giveth His beloved sleep."

DUTY OF OBEDIEN'CE.
The Kaiser Points Ont to His Offeers
Yesterday was the twenty-fifth anniver
sary of the battle of Gravelotte, of the
Franco-Prussian war, and it was celebrated
in Berlin by laying the foundation atone of
the national monument to the late Em
peror William I by his grandson, Emperor
William II, In the presence of many of the
German sovereigns and other dignitaries.
In the evening the emperor attended a
banquet at Potsdam, given by the first
brigade of Foot Guards, to celebrate the
anniversary of the war of 1670. Replying
to a toast to his health, the emperor said:
"The great successes which the army,
uinder the leadership of Emperor William,
and more especially the Prussian Guards,
achieved, derived their origin from the pre
cepts instilled into us by 4e blessed em
percr. What was It that dbnstltuted the
gicat strength of the army? It was Im
pliel't submissionato the will of Its supreme
enmrmander. Therefore, we ought con
stantly to remember the three virtues
a hich he described as the main pillars of
the army-courage, honor and Implicit
obedience. Let us, with unremitting ef
forts, maintain and strengthen these quali
ties. Then will the army remain as the
great emperor created it. It will then
form a basis for the peace of Europe and
justify the saying of von Muoltke: 'We are
not only strong enough to maintain the
peace of Europe, but also to enforce It.'"
