WHERE SHE COMES.
With heavy elders overhung, Half hid in clover masses, An old fence rambles on, among The tangled meadow grasses. It makes a shade for laoy fern Which nestles close beside it; While clematis, at every turn, And roses almost hide it. In shade of overhanging sprays And down a sunny hollow, By hazel copse, and woodland ways. The winding fence I follow; By rose and thorn and fragrant dew, In search of something sweeter— The orchard gap, where she comes through, And I go down to meet her I The sunlight slants along the fence. Where lichens gray it over, And stirs a hundred dreamy sceuts From fern and mint and clover; But;t hough the air Is sweet today I know of something sweeter: That she can only come this way, And I am sure to meet herl And so, while chipmunks run a match To tell tho wrens who's coming, And all across the brier patch There sounds a drowsy humming— The hum of honey seeking bees— I seek for something sweeter: A gap amongst the apple trees, Where I am going to meet herl — Charles B. Going in Scribner's. A SPECTRE HELMSMAN. In the summer of 1839 the ship Vul can, under the command of Capt. Isaac Johnson, was on her homeward bound passage from the Indies with half a cargo of tea, and she stopped at Cape Negro, on the coast of Benguela, after a lot of ivory to make up her load. Hav ing gone on shore at the Capo the captain learned from the native con tractor that he would have to go some fifteen miles up the Cannibal's river, as the elephant hunters had all the boats further up in the country, so that con sequently they had not been enabled to hring the ivory down. Capt. Johnson was somewhat disap pointed at this cause for delay, but with out waiting to find useless fault he de termined to man his own boats and pro ceed at once up the river. It required four trips to bring all the ivory down, but as they had opportunity to take ad vantage of the slight tides the task was accomplished in four days. On the last trip the captain went himself, leaving the first mate in charge of tho ship, and on arriving at the small village where the ivory was stored he was not a little surprised to find that nearly all the miserable huts were deserted. Several times Capt. Johnson inquired tho mean ing of this, but tho natives were either unable or unwilling to givo any plain answer, and it was not until the last lot of tusks had been conveyed to the boats and the natives had been remunerated for their labor that the least clew could be obtained as to the cause of this strange desertion, and then for the first time the captain received tho startling intelli gence that the cholera was sweeping down tho river! As soon as this fact became known to the seamen they wildly huddled into their boats, as though the fearful death angel was at their heels, and silently, yet with powerful strokes, they pulled down tho fatal stream. At length they reached their ship, and though they breathed somewhat more freely as they trod their own deck, yet each counte nance bore the stamp of deep fear. The ivory was soon got on board, and with all haste the old Vulcan was got nuder •way. It was nearly night when tho ship got off, and with a good breezo from tbe northward and eastward sho stood well on her course. On the next morning, shortly after breakfast, and while the crew had begun to think that they had no occasion for further fear, a young man named Walter Addison was taken suddenly sick. Young Addison was the favorite both of the officers and the crew, and as it was reported that he was thus ill a gen eral consternation seized upon all hands. The young man felt at first a giddiness and a sickly chill, and in the course of two hours he sank into an alarmiug de bihty, the countenance assuming a deadly paleness and his skin bearing all the appearance of a corpse. Poor Addi son suffered till noon, and then the startling announcement went through the ship that he was dead. This was the first, but who should be the next? A panic had seized upon the men; the cholera was with them, and none dared remove the form of their dead shipmate from his berth. Night approached, and with it came an almost dead calm, but the corpse still remained in the forcastle, nor did the men dare to go thither. The captain urged that the longer presence of the body would breed more dangerous contagion, but the only answer he received was a mournful shake of the heads about him. At length, finding that all arguments were useless, he turned to his mate and asked him if he would assist himself in throwing the body of tho dead man over board. The mate at first hesitated, but in a moment he signified his consent, and together himself and the captain went down into the forecastle. They dared not remain long enough with tho corpse to sew it up, nor even to attach to it a sinking weight, but throwing over it a single blanket, they managed to get it upon deck and lay it across the bul wark of the starboard bow. A moment Capt. Johnson hesitated—he opened his lips, breathed a prayer for the soul of the departed, and then, while a shudder ran over his frame, he let the cold form of young Walter Addison sbde into the blue water! Instinctively he cast his eyes over the side as the deed was done, and by the pale phosphorescent light he could just see the corpse sink, then rise and sink again, and then with a heavy atep and a still heavier heart he walked aft. The first watch had been set, but the other watch dared not go below, and huddling themselves beneath the long boat they sought the repose which they feared to seek where their companion had died; but each seemed to fear his neighbor, for none knew where the con tagion might be. At 11 o'clock the slight breathings of the air, which seemed for the last few hours to have had no settled point, began to gather more force from the northward and westward, and ere long a good fresh breeze filled the ship's canvas and started her through the water. The v» hid con tinued to increase, and before midnight all hands were called to take in the top gallantsails. At 12 o'clock the mid watch was set, and all hands were for a few moments brought in contact with «ach other. No further symntoms of THE LOS ANGELES HERALD TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1890. the dreaded pestilence had appeared, and they began to take hope. It was half past 13 o'clock. An old seaman named Bill Shippen had the helm, white the remainder of tho watch were either in the gangway or else for ward. The wind continued fresh, but yet steady, and the old ship was close hauled upon it, lying some two points off from her true course. The ship's bell was suspended over the binnacle, and old Shippen reached over and struck the first half hour after midnight. He had just resumed his position, aud was gaz ing intently at the compass, when he felt a hand laid upon his shoulder, and on turning around he beheld by the struggling beams of the binnacle lamp the pale, deathly features of Walter Ad dison! For an instant the old sailor remained rooted to tho spot, and then, uttering a sharp cry of fear, he let go the wheel and darted forward. In a moment the ship began to fall off, and as she brought the flat surface of broad canvas to the wind she heeled over alarmingly; but soon the pale specter that had frightened the helmsman from his post caught the wheel, and laid the helm hard down, and ere long the ship was once more to the wind. Shippen's cry had started all hands from their listlessness, for they thought the cholera fiend had assailed him, but from his broken ejaculations they soon learned what was the matter, and in a body they crowded aft, and by the dim light from the binnacle they saw tho specter helmsman! Every knee trembled, and every tongue clove to the roof of its mouth. None dared to approach him, nor did any move back. At this juncture the captain came on deck. His eye caught the corpse like form that still held the wheel, and he, too, was riveted to the spot where he stood. "Shipmates, relieve me from here, or I shall I am cold and weak!" at length came from the lips of the seem ing specter,- in faint, agonized tones. Capt. Johnson hesitated an instant, and then he rushed forward and laid his hand upon the trembling form before him. It was cold and wet, but he knew that it was a living man. One after an other of the men gathered about, and before long all knew that young Walter Addison still lived. The captain had him conveyed to the cabin, where every thing that could be thought of was ad ministered for his comfort, and it was not long before he sufficiently revived to givo an account of his strange escape from the cold, deep grave to which he had been consigned. It seemed that young Addison had fallen into that deathlike lethargy which not infrequently results from sudden cholera, and which, as all who are ac traainted with the disease must be aware, so nearly resembles death that even tho best physicians have been deceived by it. The sudden immersion in the cold water had revived his dormant senses, and as the ship had but a slight motion at the time he came to a partial realiza tion of his situation before she had passed him, and by considerable exer tion he managed to get hold of the rud der chains. He tried to call for assist ance, but his tongue was so swollen that he found it impossible, and afterremain ing upon the chains long enough to re gain more strength he worked his way up till he got hold of the lanyards of the cabin dead lights. From thence he reached the lashings of the stern boat, but here weakness again overpowered him, and after working his way into the boat he remained some time insensible, but at length he revived and came on board. He had tried to speak, but he could not. When the helmsman fled from the wheel he had sense enough to see the ship's danger, and from the impulse of a sort of instinct he seized the wheel and brought her up to the wind. The morning dawned, and the next day passed, then another, and another, but the death fiend came not again! He had lost his first intended victim and he left the ship in peace. —Sylvanus Cobb, Jr., in Yankee Blade. How Maine Men Keep Young.

SPECIAL NOTICE OF THE lain Street Savings Bank AND 5-Cent Deposit Stamps. At the annual meeting of the Board of Direc tors of the above institution it was resolved, in order to increase the usefulness of the Hank, and to encourage small deposits, that the sys tern of 5 cent deposit stamps be adopted after January 1,1891. This system has been in use many years in Europe, and has recently been adopted in the United States, and is regarded us very beneficial, tending to teach children and young people the advantage of saving money. Agents will be appointed in all parts of the city and county for the sale of 5 cent deposit stamps. Each purchaser of two deposit stamps will be furnished with a book of ten leaves, each leaf ruled for twenty stamps. The agent will send the name and number of each book pur chased to the Bunk. Whenever any depositor hat filled ,i leaf with twenty stamps, he can bring this or send it by mail to the Hank. You will then receive a regular deposit book, with one dollar to your credit, nnd whenever another leaf is filled und sent to the Hank anotherdollar Is entered on your book. Or, the entire stamp book of ten leaves may be filled and sent to the Hank at one time. The Main-street Savings Bank and Trust Co., Incorporated October 28, 1889, has had SOO de positors during the year. The Hank is already on a paying basis, and its growth has been very satisfactory to its depos itors and stockholders. Its Hoard of Directors is composed of the following well-known citizens: CHAS.
