The buttons dangling by a thread— Once touched by fingers, with the dead— Each straggling one it brings to me A perfume from life's sacristy. This tiny shoe without a heel. Where little piggies used to steal. To me is more than priceless gem Plucked from a royal diadem. It brings from amaranthine shore The face my loving eyes bent o'er; It brings, dear heaven! from the night. Her kiss, her voice, her smile's delight. ma >' not a mother list Whose ears are bended to the mist That rises out of shadow land Made glad by the angelic band? Their voices come on wings of air To greet her. patient, waiting there, Enrapt with this morocco shoe A-gap where baby's toes peeped through. There comes no sweetness like the song Of love's Invisibles, who throng The sacred cloisters of the heart. Unknown to all the world apart. So, 1 may list the whispers soft. Waft to me from the throne aloft— Ah! only heard by me, the while y mind recalls the baby's smile. —Horace Seymour Keller, in N. Y. Sun. A Double-Barreled =_Ruse=— By J. C. PLUMMER (Uopyrlght, 1903, by Daily Story Pub. Co.) C APT. PRAY gazed placidly around from the bridge of the tramp steam er Grimsby, moored alongside the huge elevator, when Mr. Hogg, chief officer, accosted him. "Smiley is in trouble, sir," he said. Capt. Pray frowned. "Out with it," said he. "You see," began Mr. Hogg, "Smiley used to run on the Pillman boats, and on one of his trips to Baltimore he meets a young lady. One thing led to another, and the first thing Smiley knows he is engaged to be married to her. Then he leaves the Pillman line and goes on the Grimsby in the Black sea trade, and never expecting to come to Baltimore again, he gets engaged to a girl in Birkenhead." "That's nothing," remarked the cap tain, disappointedly; "all sailors do that." Mr. Hogg continued: "Smiley had a quarrel with the second engineer of the Pillman boat, and he knowing all about the Baltimore engagement, writes the girl of the Birkenhead woman and also says Smiley is coming to Baltimore on the Grimsby." "Well," snapped the captain, as- Mr. Hogg paused. "When the pilot came aboard at the capes he hands Smiley a letter from the Baltimore girl raking him fore and aft, and saying she would have him ar rested for breach of promise as soon as the ship moored." Capt. Pray glared at his chief officer. "Where am I going to get a chief en gineer if Smiley is put in Jail?" he roared, "and the Grimsby barely time to load and save her charter." "I've thought of that," said Mr. Hogg, sadly, "but some years ago Smiley did me a favor, and he expects me to get him out of this bally bad mess." "If it wasn't for detaining the steam er; I'd let him get out of it in his own bloody way," growled the captain, "but something must be done. Ha!" He slapped the rail sharply. "I have • It. I'm good at these things! I have it, Hogg." Mr. Hogg gazed admiringly at his commander. "Smiley must fall 3ick," announced the captain, briefly. "Sick!" ejaculated Mr. Hogg. "Not real sick, you swab," snapped the captain, "but make believe sick. Lay in his bunk and groan. She'd never haul off a sick man to jail." Mr. Smiley was not enthusiastic at the plan, but Capt. Pray waxed eloquent. "You'll lay in Jail until you rot, Smiley," said the captain. "You haven't the money to pay the lawyers Jwho'll swarm around you like tugs about a stranded steamer." "How long must I stay in my bunk?" asked Mr. Smiley. "Until the Grimsby pulls out o' dock," replied the captain, firmly. With gloomy forebodings of evil Mr. Smiley turned in. "Now, Hogg," exclaimed the captain, "you go to the girl's house and tell her Smiley is confined to his bunk. Don't lie. I'm a chapel member, and I won't have any lying done. Tell her it may be smallpox or yellow fever. Stick to something, Hogg, but don't lie." "You've a great head, sir," remarked Mr. Hogg. "I'll work It all right." "When you come to the catching part put on all steam, Hogg," advised the captain. "We don't want her coming to the steamer, but be careful not to lie." "I'll be careful, sir," said Mr. Hogg, winking his eye, and he departed on his diplomatic errand. Captain Pray then walked on tip toe to Smiley's bunk. "How are you feeling, my poor fel low?" he asked, in subdued tones. "I'm all right, sir," replied the Inva lid, sulkily, "Sh!" said the captain; "don't talk. I'll get you some beef tea." "This here is only make-belief sick ness, sir," expostulated the engineer, •aeasily. "See here. Smiley," said the captain, sternly, "this whole thing is done for your benefit It's a kind of deception Mr. Hogg and I are playing, and I want to keep as close to the truth as I can, for I'm a chapel member and Mrs. Hogg is a religious woman. We'll have to «nah» this sick business ss near to truth as we can." Mr. Smiley sighed. 1 "After you'?* takes your beef tea 111 give you: a nice dose of cod-liver on," announced the captaip. MY. Smiley disgustedly swallowed the oil, and then the captain, after sta tioning a burly seaman at the state room to give the alarm in case of a crisis, went on deck. He had Just reached the bridge when Mr. Hogg excitedly rushed up to him. "They're coming," he gasped. "Who?" inquired the captain. "The young lady; and she's fetching a doctor with her." "You have botched the whole thing, Hogg," groaned the captain. "Now we are in a devil of a mess." "Told her your identical words, sir." explained Mr. Hogg. "I said it might be catching, and she says: 'I'll come an „ t '. nurse ^ n ''> an d bring a doctor." "You didn't come out strong enough on it's being catching," said the cap tain, in despair. "Indeed, I did, sir," said Mr. Hogg, wringing his hands, "and she says: 'l'!I nurse my poor Henry if he has all the Plagues of Egypt.' " At that momenta tall, reddish-haired young woman and a slender man with spectacles on his nose walked on deck and asked for the captain. The two officers sheepishly descended from the bridge and approached the couple. "Oh, captain!" cried the lady, "Is Henry worse?" He s no better," replied the cap tain, guardedly. "I've come to nurse him, and ha«*, brought a doctor," exclaimed the lady. "Take me to him." "Some sicknesses are catching," said the captain, hesitating. "Orful," chimed In Mr. Hogg. I m not afraid when Henry's life ** in danger," she persisted. "Take me to him." The two officers, with perturbed coun tenances, led the way below, and th» lady pushed the burly man on guard away as if he was of straw. "Henry, are you very sick?" she asked. Mr. Smiley caught the glowering per> of the captain, and said, feebly, that i; - felt very ill, which was not 1er from th truth, as the mixture of oil and bei tea was not having a pleasing c!V' ct. "I have come to nurse you, Henry," she said, "and I have brought the doc tor to examine you." Mr. Smiley turned very pale as the doctor stepped forward and asked him to put out his tongue. Then he tapped his chest and asked hint to draw a deep breath. "Good Heavens!" exclaimed the doc tor, with concern; "let me feel your pulse. "This is very serious," he continued, placing his ear to where Mr. Smiley's heart was supposed to be. "What's the matter?" asked Mr. Smiley in a cold sweat of terror. "Where does this young man's family reside?" asked the doctor, with solem nity. "Is there something the matter with me?" asked the engineer, piteously. "Am I going to die?" "Be quiet, poor fellow," said the doc tor, sadly. Capt. Pray, with a pallid face, dragged the doctor from the stateroom. "Do you mean to say he's sick?" he asked, hoarsely. "He may be dead before morning," replied the doctor. "He was well enough a little while ago." "My dear captain, some illnesses come like the flash of a gun," replied the doc tor, "but I haven't given up hope. We may save him." "I suppose you've plenty of tar on the ship." "Lots," excitedly replied the captain. "Make two large plasters and place one on his back and the other on his breast," said the doctor. "I'll do it," asseverated the captian. The doctor then persuaded the young lady to go home, as the patient was in good hands, and they left. It was a bad night for Mr. Smiley, as between the tar plasters and the large doses of cod-liver oil which the captain insisted on administering at intervals, he had much to bear, but the next morn ing the doctor reported him as better, but not out of danger. The captain accompanied the doctor on deck, and, pointing to the spouts which were emptying the grain into the. hold of the steamer, said, earnestly: "See here, doctor, I've got to sail to morrow and I can't'sail without an en gineer. Is it likely Smiley will be able to be up by to-morrow?" "Mr. Smiley," replied the doctor, "has a remarkable disesae. It comes quick, and either kills or goes as quickly. Thanks to your knowledge and prompt use of cod-liver oil, I think he will be as well as ever he was by to-morrow." The next morning when the doctor boarded the Grimsby the assistant en gineer had steam up, and everything was in readiness for a start. He hurried be low. and, examining the engineer, said: "You can get up, Mr. Smiley. You are entirely well, but you have had a narrow escape. Here's a letter for you." While the Grimsby was steaming down the bay. Mr. Smiley read by the sunlight gleaming in a port the following let ter: "Dear Mr. Smiley: I never intended marrying you. I was racking my brain for a reason to break it off when I heard of your treachery, and I resolved to scare you, so I sent that letter by the pilot. When Mr. Hogg came with his story of your sickness, I saw through it and, ■e-lth a medical friend, gave you a little scar" You were not sick In the least, but you were awfu j g' Ted. I hope the tar will stick longer than your prom is«*. Yours forgivingly, "MAGGIE."
