SPARE HER, COOP LORD.
Dear, sweet and charming little elf, From everlasting love and self. From greed of gold and love of pelf, Spare her, good Lord. If failing on her bed she lay Alone, with all but God away. From pain severe and long delay, Spare her, good Lord. If one of all the sons of men, His fondest soul shall ofter, then From unresponsive love again, Spare her, good Lord. From scornful sneer and biting jest, When of her heart she gives the best, Send her solace in lasting rest, Spare her, good Lord. From mortal days, unloved, alone, When ripened to a woman grown, Mysterious freak?a woman lone? Spare her, good Lord. ?Ernest Horsfall Rydall. 1 Tie Death of a Soward, 1 e a THE boy leant wearily against the bulwark rails, watching the lights as they came up one by one on the coast. The plunging of the ship still made the head reel, and he was weak from want of food. He seemed altogether apart from the stir and life that three hundred emigrants on board created. His whole soul was filled with a dumb and impotent protest against his fate, and the life before him. Old Captain Malcom had shown little wisdom When he sent his only son to sea to have some pluck knocked into him. In the father's defence it may be said that he was utterly unable to realize the timidity and sensitiveness of the boy. All his ancestors had been rough seamen who had faced storm and danger on every sea, and courage and nerve were hereditary qualities. And now the last of the Malcoms seemed more of a girl than any of his five sisters. All the exhortations to manliness, all the covert reproaches that came from his father, were so many darts that rankled and festered in his scul, but failed to compel his nature to ,be other than he was. The boy was made for peace, for tne quiet and uneventful life that an office in his native town could have offered under his mother's watchful care. Instead, he was here, an apprentice on the iteamsbip Pride of Asia, a big ca^go boat just off the ships on the Tyne, and carrying emigrants to the Cape. The aliip's doctor came out of the saloon in the poop to go his evening rouml below. With him was his wife, a slight, girlish figure, wrapt in a heavy cloak. She turned at the ladder which led to the lower deck, and was about to go back, when eyes fell on ^he boy. She had noticed him once or twice before, and his white face and lonely air roused the womanly sympathy in her. She touched him lightly on the shoulder ana saia: "You are leaving home, like me." The boy started. A slight color sprang to his cheeks, and tears to his eyes. He smiled faintly, showing a gap where tw? teeth had been knocked out by a smaller boy in the only fight he had ever had at school. "Yes, ma'am," he replied. ' "You must feel lonely," she said; "but you will soon be back, and then every one will think so much of you." Her voice had something caressing and inviting about it; and so his confidence, overcoming his shyness and reserve, broke bounds. He told her everything?bow he would hate this life, how all filled him with fear and disgust, the cold aud darkness, the chaff and horreplay of his fellow-apprentices, the indifference of every one around him. He told how iin possible it was to come up to his father's standard, how he felt he was a born coward, and that he wotrld always be one, shrinking instinctively from the danger and excitement Jthat bolder natures took pleasure in. She listened sympathetically. Her hand had patted him once or twice, and encouraged him to go on. "When he ended, she said: "You must not be too hard on yourself. It is not always those who fear the least that are bravest in the end. When the time ponies. I am sure you will do your duty." The boy hoard her listlessly. * He had little heart to respond to any appeal to his manliness. There seemed uo time when lie would not shrink from hardship or danger. lie almost felt as if his confidence had been misplaced. and that she had understood nothiug after all. She jsaw the change, and her interest in him somewhat waned. Courage to a woman is the primary quality in the other sex, and nothing will compensate for the lack of it. She bade him good night and turned away IU iuf In a few minutes the second mate passed along the deck and told the toy to go below. Then all was quiet. A few hours later the Pride of Asia was steaming at "slow." with her whistle going every few minutes. The Channel fog girt the ship like a shroud. The Captain walked the bridge uneasily. No tempest or rookbound shore gives the anxiety that a fog on this waterway of the nations does. Danger is imminent everywhere, and the most careful seamanship Is no guarantee of safety. So it was now. A hoarse shout enme from the man on the lookout. The Captain sprang to the telegraph, and as "Full speed aslern" rang out a large sailing ship took form in the fog. and in a few seconds crashed into the steamer in front of the bridge. The Pride of Asia shook from stem to stern, heeled over to starboard, and then be.can to force ahead, while the oihtr went pounding along her side, wrenching the port boats from her davits and stavius them in with her bow-sprit, 'then she passed away as a ghost in tho fog. The Priue o( Asia had met lior death wound. At oacc nil was noise nnd confusion. The emigrants came pouring up oa deck, screaming and shouting with terror. Some of the sailors rushed to clcar tho boats, but a sharp order from the Captain stopped them. In a lew seconds the Captain had decidcd on his course. The remaining boats would not carry a hundred and fifty people. Theic were more than twice that number on board. I r. On the olher hand. the land this aho three miles off, and a sandy and ,pi tooted beach meant safety. But cor it bo done with that hole in her sid He would try. He changed h course, rang "Full speed ahead," a: shouted to the mate. "Go down ai shut the for'ard bulkheads, It Jones." The mate ran forward, and with t help of the carpenter tore off pa of the hatch covering and sprang the ladder. As he clinched dov young Malcom peered aimlessly ov the hatch". "Bring down a lantern," cried t: mate, and Malcolm, galvanized in activity by fear, seized a lantern fro the al)ej*ways and clambered dov into the hold. The mate ran toward the iron do 1 In the bulkhead, which had been le open, and pushed it to. "The light here?quick!" And the boy brought it. "Blast them!?oh. blast them roared the mate. "They've put tl bolts on the wrong side. In fi1 minutes we'll all be in kingdo come." He stumbled for the ladder, ai Malcolm followed, wild with terrc Yes. every one would be drowne and lie, too, with the cruel, coiu wan sucking him down. He dropped tl lantern and began to pull himself i the ladder. Suddenly he stopped. An idea ha been born in his brain; a hideous, u: thinkable thought?the door could 1 closed from the other side. He hue limply on the ladder, and in his min raged a tornado of conflict. Oh, to be out of this awful 6bl] safe once again at home! But tl mate bad said that all were lost. Thj meant him, too. And if only that do< . -ii ?u i? were shut, aw couiu uk beads of sweat broke out on his for head. He groaned and writhed aboi J like one on the rack. Then he bega | to descend slowly. He stopped agai on the last rung. He clung to tt | ladder as a drowning man to a rop' j He could never let go. Why was h not going up the ladder? There wei boats left. He had seen that. H could fight for a place, and be save* He was so young; not old. like tt mate and captain. They must gi\ him a place. All at once he loosened his hold aD ran blindly for the door. On the wa he tripped and fell heavily on h hands and face, cutting and bruisin them. He lay half stunned for a mil ute, moaning from the pain, the raised himself and crawled the rest < the way. He passed through the doo and with feverish haste shot the gret iron bolts. The boy was alone 1 his tomb. He leaned against th bulkhead, sick, sick to death. Wh had he.done this? He did not knov They would be saved now, but heO! God. no more light or life for hin His poor dry lips moved convulsive!; and his hands beat aimlessly on tt iron wall. He would go back. Hop returned with a rush. He would'fdl in the open?with others around hie It would be good to die thus, not i this hell or darkness and desolatenes He unshot one bolt and fumbled fc the other. Then, with a low moai he cast himself from it, driving h; teeth iuto his lips in his agony. It was not to be. He was too gre? a coward to live. He could only di< He would pray. But he could thin of nothing?nothing but the "Th night when I lie down to sleep" fc had learned at his mother's kuee. To sleep?oh, he would sleep lonj There was to be no waking this tim How the water was creeping up! Long shuddering fits shook his fan: as he felt the icy fingers of deat rising inch by inch. He screamed an raved, dashing his head against tl iron, lhat death might come quickl; He plunged beneath the water, onl to come up again, fighting madly f( life. Then there was a long draw j sob. and then silence. ? c * * * The Captain .stood on tne nriage, figure of stony despair. The lar could never be reached with wat< pouring like a torrent into the fo ward hold. He cursed his negligem in overlooking such a frightful blu: der. It was going to cost two bu; dred lives, and he must not be amor tlie saved. The Pride of Asia wi getting low in the water, but he coul not understand why she was not sinl ing more by the bow. She was v brating from the engines, pushed their highest pressure, for the firerm stuck gallantly to their posts. Fn minutes went, and ten, and then, wil a sudden shock, she took .ground, at all were safe. Next morning, young Malcolm w; missing, and the sorrowful news wi sent to his father. It was thoug! he had fallen overboard when tl ship grounded, and he could n> swim. A week afterward, the divers e tered the forward hold, and foun to their astonishment, that the bul head door, which they had expect* to find open, was closed. They forced it open, and against was floating the body of a boy. ? * * Old Captain Malcolm comes oft< to the little graveyard by the sea. 1 it stands a cross, on which are 1. scribed the words: "HERE LIES A HERO." inemins 111k Shoulder* Out Place.

Common Sense In Dishwashing. Dishwashing, by the general consen* 1 sus of opinion, would seem to be the most unimportant task in the whole realm of housework. An inexpe- ' rlenced girl or a very young girl may ! be considered good in so far as being able to at least wash the dishes, and sometimes she is allowed to wash them her own way without let or hindrance. But even about dishwashing there is a right way and several wrong ways. One Of the latter consists in putting everyAing from teacups and silverware to cooking, utensils through the same water, which grows more and more mixed as the process goes on, and then drying these same dishes without putting them through hot rinsing water. Common sense should Bhow the necessity of changing the washing water frequently, because it grows qold as well as dirty. Common sense should also dictate that a good hot rinsing water is a necessity that will free the dishes from soapiness. Without plenty of hot water and plenty of clean towels clean sweet dishes are an impossibility, and no one who has ever had experience with rough dishes need be told of their disagree-able suggestiveness. \s\&earij^r Blackberry Pie?Line a deep pie plate with paste and fill with one pint I of very ripe blackberries, three-fourths cup of granulated sugar and a pinch of salt. Pour over this one cup of sweet cream and bake with one crust. Plum Table Jelly?Stew the plums In a little water, strain out the juice, In a pint .of which soak a bos of gelatine. Sweeten to the taste, add a quart of boiling water, strain aud cool. It is to be made the day before it is wanted for use. Currant Catsup?Stew four pounds of red currants, mash them, add two pounds of sugar and boil slowly until thick. Then add one-fourth teaspoonful of salt, one cupful of vinegar, one teaspoonful each of powdered allspice, mace and cinnamon. Boil up once and bottle. Dried Plums?Plums may be dried with the stones in, to retain the full plum flavor, or the pits may be re- ' moved and the cavities tilled with sugar. Put them on plates in the 6un, sprinkling with sugar and turn ing often. The finish may be made in a cool oven. ^ Peas?Peas should be < nnked in boiling water, uot salted, aud no more water than is needed to keep them covered. When done salt and butter 1 sliould be added for seasoning, the water having cooked away to a tablespoonful. They are not done until the skins shrivel. Lemon Ginger Ice?Shave the yellow rind from two lemons, place in a bowl with three ounces of crushed giugei root, pour a quart of boiling water aud let stand ton minutes closely covered.
