"It is not all of life to live, Xor all of death to die! ' To drink the dratiglit the world can give, Then perish with a sigh. No! Life is more than meat and drink, Or fame or worldly Rear; While souls are hovering: on the brink And heaven and hell ap)ear.' Trie life on earth is faith and lnie And love to God and man: A living power that heeds the scope Of heaven's appointed plan. A spark from out the jasper throne, A diuniond from out the bky; That strikes the "earth, then ei-Us its own, Anions the saint 011 liifdi. Dealh is the shallow of the soul, That dims iu setting ray; The mists that rise to hide its Koal, In heaven's eternal day. A breath upon Ihe glass a Mreen 'Twixt time and endlts life; A shadu now past of yester e'en, A sigh for what we miyht have been, A truce to earthly strife; A writhe, a groan, a gasp for breath. Then earnest hope and this is death. Who then should fi-ar the cares of life. While heart and pulse are beating high? How can they fear the damp of death, Whose hopes up yonder lie, O give us then that mighty iaiili, That lives through life, and conquers death. MABKI.'S liOVKIl. Under the shadow of a preat fig tree ix younsr pirl nut in a deep rev erie. Suih a tender lifiht was in her eyef, such a sweet 6mile' of full Hittis iaction on her fice, that a stranger would certainly have said: ''She is thinking of her lover." But no lover hud Mabel Kae. Her pleasure sprang from a far leps dan gerous source from the handful of tuberoses m her lap. Their spiritual, dreamy be tuty and rare, rich per fume always held her s in atpell ot measureless content, and the lovely waxen tlowern, pale, pure, and white aj moonshine. hauntetl her heartand imagination, and reiriyed ffni her a perjtetual love and worship. There she gut until the heat and etillntss of the tropic noon drove her to the house, a tirand old home, hid among giant live oaks ray with the solemn waving Southern mo.-s. She went to the large dim p:irlor, intend ing to put her favorites amt ng the damp mots of the hanging bar-kets, but the dreamy languor of the room overcome everv desire but mat 01 a . 1 i sleep, and the lay down on the near est couch, holding hee Honxrs ji her hand. Half an hour later Mr. Kae open ed the door, and ushered in a gen tleman who had accompanied him from New Orleans. "Sit down, Allan," he said, "I will soon aiou.se the house. You see it is the hour for siesta, and I believe all take it at the whim I am away." For a few minutes the young man believed himself., alone. A Ftiblte, powerful perfume was hid first sen sation. Then, as his eyes became accus tomed to the dim liulit of the cure fully closed httices, he saw a picture that he never nmre forgot, a most lovelv cirl, in the first bloom of maidenhood, fast asleep on the silk en cushions piled on a low divan. Her white roles made n kind of elo ry in the darkened corner, one hand had falit n down, and the flowers gemmed the carpet at her side; the other lay across her breast, as if em bracing the tube roses which it had scattered there. Never in ail his native mountains, never in any dream of love or fancy, had Allan Monteith seen a woman half so fair. He stood gazing on Mabel as if he hail seen a vision. There lay his destiny asleep, he knew it, and opened ids whole soul to welcome "J,ove's young dream." But when Mr. Kae, followed by a negro valet, returned, and Mabel languidly opened her great pensive eyes and stretched out her amis for her father s embrace. Allan almost thought he should faint from excess of emotion, and it was with difficul ty he controlled himself to receive the introduction and apologies nec essarv. Allan Monteith was a young Scotchman, the only .on of a gun tleman with whom in early life Mr. Kae had formed a most ardent friendship. He was rich, and by nature and birth equally noble; nor was hedes titute ot the traditional business ca pacity of his house, as some late transactions in cotton and sugar in New Orleans had proved to Mr. Kae. And partly because he liked the young man, and part)jr as a matter of interest, he had invited him to hie home among the woods and la goons of the evergreen bayou. Ma bel, in this transaction, had scarcely been properly considered ; but to her father she was yet a child. True, he recognized her beauty, and wag very proud of it, and she possessed an exquisite voice and great skill in music, and the passing idea of showing his pearl of price to the foreigner rather flattered his van ity than alarmed his fears. He did not dream that he was introducing a new claimant for its possession. Allan linE2red as if in an enchant ed castle, till he had no life, no will, no hopes, but those which centered in Mabel Kae. And she soon returned his passion with a love even ni'ore absorbing and far less selfish than her lover's. Oh, the sweet, warm, love laden days in those solemnly shaded woods! ' : ph, the blissful hours in the cool j ev enings, when the perfume of tube roses and jasmine filled the ajr, when the soft, calm moonlight glo rified every lovely and everv com- jnion thine! . I It was like a dream of those dars when the old rustic gods reigned,: to h vt was to love, and to love j was to be happv. With tbe failhowever, there came 1 letters from Scotland, and Allan could not longer delay, Mr. Rae . . . e if" WOU1U uearoi no engageiueu l lor l wj , vddrs r, o wrr.ic.ri lima hAcaui htfk hnrv- . . , , , ' tH IO Of auie to give diaoei tut.II a f,.rti,n n wniilrl ni-ikf hT acwnta- Jortune as WOUIO ni.

NOVEMBEIl 22. 1SS2. pie's attachment as binding on eith er side. "In less thon two years I will be here again, Mabel, darling," were Allan's last whispered words, as he held her in his arms, and kissed again again the face dearer than all the world to him. And Mabel smiled through her tears, ond held the last tube rose of the summer to bis lips for a parting pledge. . . ' But the two years brought many changes. The war cloud gathered, and lung before Allan could redeem his prom ise the little inland plantation was desolate and deserted ; Mabel was an orphan, and cruelly embarrassed in money affairs ; claimants without number appeared against the Rae estate, and creditors forced the plan t ition into the market at the most unfavorable time. Siie was driven from her home in strict accitrdaiice with the letter of the law, but she felt and knew, tlio' powerless to prevent it, that she had been wronged. For the first time in all her life Mabel thought for herself, and dared to look the future in the face. She tiad promised her father never to write to Allan without his permis sion, but she considered that death annuls all contracts, and surely now if ever it was Allan's duty to befriend and care for her. So she sent him word, in a few, shy, timid sentences, of her sorrow and loneliness. But it was doubtful if even the letter would reach him; mails in those days were not certain ties ; and even if it did reach Allan, it was st'II more uncertain whether he rnuld reach Mabel. And in the meantime she must work, and though Mubel could com mand no higher position than that of a nursery governess, yet she found in it a higher life than ever the dreamy luxurious selfishness of her fatiiers home had given tier. Her employers were of the ordi nary class. I can weave no romance out of them. They felt no iecial interest in Ma bell, neither did they ill-use her. She was useful and unobtrusive, and asked for neither sympathy nor at tention. No letter came from Allau, though uhe waited and . huptd with failing Uearl and paling cheek for more than a year. She had not the courage to write again, and her anxiety and distress began to tell very perceptibly on a naturally frail constitution. Then a physician advised her to try at once a more invigorating c'i niate, and she not unwillingly agreed to uccompany the invalid wife of an oflicer returning to her home in New York. This was the dawn of a brighter day for Mabel ; by the advice of her friends she established herself in a fashionable locality and commenced tpuL'hiiijr music. I think few women could "iave been more successful ; so jn che sec ond winter of Mabel's residence in New York it became "the thing" to invite Miss Rae to preside over se lect 6cial and musical entertain ments. I have a friend who met her dur ing that season frequently, and who describes her tact and influence as something extraordinary and mag rietic. Jler rare beauty was untienjinish ed, though niore thoughtful; her dress was uniformly the same a pale, pink, lustreless silk, with tube roses in her hair and at her breast, for her passion for these flowers was stronger than ever. She had many lovers, but she ig nored or else decidedly refused all. Her heart was still with the tall, fair, mountaineer who had won it amid the warmth and perfume of tropic noons and moonlight nights; and though twice two years tiad passed, she refused to believe him false. And she was right. Allan deserv ed her fullest faith. Her letters had never reached him, and yet he had with incredible difficulty made his way to New Orleans, only to find the plantation in the hands of stran gers, and Mabel gone. After a long and dispiriting search he left Mabel's discovery in the hands of well paid agents, and re turned to JScotJand almost .broken hearted. But he still loved her passionately and often on stormy nights when the winds tossed the tall pines like straws, and mountain snows beat at the barred doors and windows, he thought of the happy pece and sol emn silences in which he and his love had walked, listening only to the beating of their own hearts, or the passionate undertones of the mocking-birds. Thus the two walked apart who should have walked hand in hand, and it seemed as if the years only w idened that breach over which two souls looked longingly and called vainly. But if we will wait, the harvest of the heart uitt come; and so one day Mabei got a note from a friend an nouncing her return from abroad, and beeging her to be present at a small intormal reunion at her house that evening. She went early in the day, and spent the afteruoop in that pleasant gossip which young and happy women enjoy. Her friend rallied her a good deal upon her growing years, and laughingly advised her to secure a young Scotchman with whom they had had a pleasant acquaintance in their travels, and who was now in New York, and going to spend the even ing with them. Did fate knock softly at Mabel's soul then? for she blushed, and in stantly, as f by magic, there sprang up in her heart a happy refrain, which she could not control, and which kept on singing, " He comes, he comes, my lover comes J " j She dressed with more than or dinary care, and was so impatient; . . . i . ... i . i i i mat ner louei was compieieu oeiore the others had begun. So she sat down in the sun-lighted parlor, say ing to herself: "I must e still ; I will be calm ; for how should I bear a disappointment, and what ground of hope have I; Absolutely none, but that he comes from the same country. No, ther is no hope." But "still above the doubt and fear ihe could hear the same chiming undertone: "He comes! he comes! my lover comes ! " She became nervous and supersti tious, and when the silence wa3 bro ken by a quick ring and a rapid footstep, she ross involuntarily from her chair, and stood trembling and flushing with excitement in the mid dle of the room. Ah, Mabel! Ma bel! lour hart has seen further than vour eyes. .-lVia has cume at "Ah, my darling! my darling! I have found you atlast!" was all that Mabel heard as Allan clasped her to his bosom. Ami so Mabel's winter of discon tent and sorrow was over, and n;ver more did she have grief or pain un soothed or uncomforted for she was loved. The Bad man of Nankin. Some eitiht or ten years ago a sil ver tongued chap who chimed to be a fruit tree agent swindled the farm ers of this county in a shameful manner, and one resident of Nankin was so mad about it that he came to Detroit, searched the rascal out and gave him a pounding on the street. After he got through he told the fel low that he would lick him twice as bad if heever put eyes on him again, and it was a threat io be remember ed anil nursed. About three weeks ago the Nankin man was traveling in Washington county, and as he journeyed along the highway he met a traveler who so closely resembled the fruit tree swindler that he halted and called out: "Here you are again, you bold faced rascal!" "Yes, I'm here," was the calm re ply. "'Well, so am I, and I'm going to li k oii that you can't holler !I said I'd do it, and I always keep my word. Climb down here!" The stranger"c!utnb" without pro test, shedding his coat as he struck the ground, and a fight began. In about two minutes he had used up the farmer and was coolly replacing his coat. ''See here," said the man from Nankin, as he wiped his nose with a burdock, "you fight better than you did eight years aao." Well. I amino. Ihis is my first afli ir with vou." "Didn't I wallop you in front of the Detroit postofliee eight years ago r "No, sir; I was in Australia up to a Year ago. "And have you never seen me be fore?" t'Xever." "Well, 111 be hanged! Come to look at you I can see that you are not the man. Why o:; earth didn't you explain, or ask me tor lou mustsurelv have thought me mis taken." ''Oil, yes, I knew you were mista ken, but I had just discovered that I had driven seven milvs on the wrong roail, and was wishing some one would come along and give me two words of his impudence." Dttroit Free Prea. No Skeletons in Death Valley. Another romantic tradition has been refuted, another thrilling illu sion dispelled, by Dr. Otto Kuntze's discovery that the lethal capacities of Pakamaran. the renowned Java nese Death Valley, are as utterly fabulous as the Norwegian Kraaken or Richard of Gloucester s hump.

By one of'these paths Dr. Kuntzeenter ed the Death valley, despite the en treaties of his guides and servants, one of whom repeatedly strove to hold him back by force, and, having traversed Pakamaran in every di- rection. quitted it by the other path... The natives had assured him that he would find the valley choked up by skeletons, as even the swiftest birds flying above it would drop down stone dead, slain by its poisonous exhalations.

A good many vears ago a cashier took a little boy from a neighboring poorhouse, and when the boy had become a youth he was giyen a re sponsible position in the bank of which his patron was practically the head. Later the cashier stole more than $15,tJ0 from thi bank. Ex posure was threatened every day, ami the guilty officer, in a period of depression, confessed to the youth that he proposed to kill himself. Young K.ty, the protege, wss smit ten with horror, as he thought of the terrible turn of affairs, but having weighed the matter, the next day he threw himself into the breach. He suggested, and the cashier eagerly accepted the suggestion, that he should fasten the guilt upon himself and abscond, thus leaving his patron honest in the world's eyes, though blackened ia his own. What the public heard of the Westport rob bery was that a bank clerk named Kay had stolen $13,000. Detectives found several clues, but not until years afterwards was the secret dis closed. One of the detectives who had been employed in the case came up with Kay under still more ro mantic circumstances. The detec tive, according to his reminiscences published last week in a San Fran cisco paper, was called recently to a Western city to ferret out the person who robbed a private house of two hundred gold eagles. The only man under aarest was one Henry Martin. As soon as the detective saw Martin the former said : "You are Dallas Kay, who robbed the Westport bank ?" Ray then told the, true story of the robbery, and the story has been verified since. Kay claimed that he was innocent of the gold eagle burglary, and ask ed the detective to take a note to his sweetheart, a Miss Morse. When the latter heard of her lover's pre dicament she threw her whole sou! into obtaining proof of his innocence. She went to the house where the robbery had been committed. Hav ing asked if the burglar had left anything in his flight, she was giv en a handkerchief that had been dropped bv the intruder. She put the handkerchief to her nose and exclaimed ; " Find the thief -who uses this perfume (naming the pe culiar brand) and vou will find your eagles." It was fiound that only one drug store sold that kind of perfumery in the city and that one bottle only had been bought within the preceding month. Need it be added that the purchaser was traced, the eagles regained, the lovers mar ried ? Palntinjr with Petroleum. The following paragraph is quoted in an agricultural contemporary, ami comment made as given in the suc ceeding paragraph : " Petroleum is found to be of ben efit to shingles to preserve them, as it enters the pores of the wood at once, and as it hardens, makes it more compact In texture, and also less liable to take fire, although when once burning they will of course make more flames than the wood without it ; but a coat of petroleum applied to a shingle roof will make it last several years longer than it otherwise would Petroleum is also an excellent article to apply to the iron and steel work or farm imple ments to prevent their rusting when not in use.

She has been married a number of years to a man named Ferguson, but she and Rer husband have never had a quarrel yet and he has frequently boasted that it is utterly impossible to make her angry. Ferguson made several desperate attempts to see if he could not exasperate her to look cross or scowl at him, merely to gratify his cure-sity, but the more affable and lovable she behaved. Last week he was talking to a friend about what a hard time he had trying to find out if his wife had a temper. . The friend offered to bet him $.50 that if Ferguson were to go home drunk, raise a row and pull the table-cloth full of dishes off the table she would show signs of an noyance. Ferguson said he didn't want to rob a friend of his money, for he was sure to win ; but they at last made the bet of SoO, the frend .to hide in the front yard to watch the proceedingof the convention through the window. Ferguson came home late and ap parently fighting drunk. She met him at the gate, kissed him and as sisted his tottering steps to the house. He sat down hard in the middle of the floor and howled out: "Confound your ugly pictures, what did you mean by pulling that chair from under me?" "Oh, I hope you didn't hurt your self. It is my awkwardness, but I'll try and not do it again ;" and she then helped him to his feet, although she had nothing in the world to do with his falling. He then sat down on the sofa, ami sliding off' on the floor, abvsed her for not lilting up the other end of the sofa, all of which she took good na turedly, and finally she led him to the supper table. He threw a plate at her: but she acted as if she had not noticed it and asked him if he would take tea or coffee. Then the brute seized the table cloth and sat down on the floor, pulling the dishes and everything else over him in one grand crash. hat did this noble woman do ?

What's the trouble?" he asked, as he stopped short. "There's a man in the house, and he wouldn't go out doors when I or dered him to ?" ''He wouldn't, eh ? We'll see about that!" Thereupon the man gave the wo man his coat to hold and sailed into the house, spitting on his hands. He found a man down at the supper table, and he caught him by the neck and remarked : "Nice style of brute you are, eh ? Come out o' this, or I'll break every bone in your hotly !" The man fought back and it was not until a chair had been broken and the table upset that he vas haul ed out doors by the legs and given a fling through the gate.

On Friday morning, June .'I, "C', four little children living at Allouez , mine, Keweenaw county, Michigan, ; started out with pails and ba-kets to ! pick berries. They wandered nl,,r, the highway for about a quar'.-r a mile, and then tun,trl n s r.ts iroad, which leads through the thick i woods to the new mine called the ; Wolverine. All went well until the jwuiiesv, a mue oi a girl, and very small for her age, being but sev?n years old, complained of being tired and wanted to go home. Then, for the first time, in their efforts to re trace their steps, they diseoered that they had strayed from the path and were lost in the thick woods, where the trees in many places are but a a foot apart, and the underbrush grows as high as five feet. Vainly they sought the rihtpath till night fall chwe.l around them then, bruised and scratched by the bu.sl.es. with head, face and limbs bitten and badly swollen by the r.ip of t!.e wicket black fly, the two older chil dren, belonging to the Finn settle ment beyoud the Allouez proper, tired and fiightened. lay down and cried themselves to sleep, and were found by anxious searchers the next day in a woeful condition. When these children were asked for their little companions, they replied : "We begged them to stay with us, hut the boy said he would go and find the way to the road, and then come back for u. but his little sister would not stay without him,' and they pointed the way they had goue. In that direction a party of men searched all day, aided by' the lutii crazed Norweigian father and Finn mother of the lost little ones, and all dav the whistles of Alloii.z nrid Wolverine mines blew at intervals oi ten minutes to guide them to the settlements. Saturday night came and no chil dren found. The weary mother must return to her babe, but the father with a few men spent the night in fruitless search. Sunday we found the road full of Sweeds. Norwegians and Finns, while large parties v tro in the woods, and the whistles blew all day. Monday came and tho Cal umet and Heela joined in the search, sending about l.ur hundred men. Toward night a little foot print w.is discovered, and a piece of the little girl's dress Tuesday 'more men went out and success was thought to be certain, but alas ! no children were found. At evening the skv was full of dense black clouds." The thunder was awful never before do I remember such a rainfall and tempest as raged for a few hour, while the night and succeeding day was sultry with drizzling rainj and Wednesday night another tempest Still the searcli was continued. Kv ery day the shouts of six l.ur..lr.d men or more were making the woods alive. Friday morning one week from the children's disappearance came, and tiie Calumet and Htda mines were closed anil the whole force together with the .Mloiie. m n were stationed along the road fr oflt, five feet apart, with orders to break through the woods in that line as best they could, to search every hol low stump, to remove underbrush, to examine holes and to make sure of leaving no spit unexplored, and yet night brought nearly every man back with no traces of the children. Some stayed all nightat theiralou-t hopeless task, and some, a partv of four Sweeties, were themselves l'ost. and here is their wonderful story : "At three o'clock. Friday afternoon, we sat down by a brook to rest We were tired and bewildered and shout ed for our companions to cometo us, when from a heap of bushes came a boy saying: 'Where are you? Whs is it?' We, thinking he belonged to some party of searchers. asked: 'Who are you with?' His answer came: "My sister.' Up we sprang to our feet, and knew, even in our aniaze nifnt, that the lost children were found, and alive, anil in their right senses, although they had been alone in the wood, amid lightning and tempest for eight days, with nothing to eat but lurries. And the boy of but nine years had built huts of brush to cover them at night, and gathered and loaded both himself and sister with great branches of bluej-berries where they were to he found, and were trying to follow the tortuous course of the brook, which, ' I I'1 I , he remembered, emptied into Torch ke. He w;ts still brave.

Saturday morning some one in the street shouted to me: "They are found !" I threw up the s i-h. and a party of men were right in front of the house. They had the cnildren with them. They refused food and drink, saying they hail just fed them and did not dare to give them any more.
