[From All the Year Round] [From All the Year Round] CHAPTER I.-CONTINUED. "PoorTtrx Armiger! Poor Rex Ar Tnirrpr!" This was tho voice of the old !i;irrot, who lifted liix beak, rejioatud his rery and then subsided. Captain Holstius' oyes prow soft nnd Jmniid, for he was a tender-hearted Norwegian, and ho pitied as well as Soved the pill. "Poor Hex Armiger!" he echoed; "his parrot remembers him." " She is wrong," said the old man, "very wrong. I always tell her so. Fret tins; has been known to mako the ipastry heavy! tears spoil frravy." He sitated.this great truth as if it was a well-known ruaxim, taken from the JUiok of Proverbs. " That was the third time that I spoke o her; the third time that sho gave me the sahie reply. Shall I tea-so her miore? No, Captain Zaehariasen, I liave had my answer, and I know my lutv." " It's hard, my lad, for a sailor to Hiear. Why, you may bo dead in two years, let alone five. Most likely you will. You look as if you will. What with rocks at sea, and sharks on land, most sailors, even skippers, by thirty years of age, is immmore. And though onn " here ho tried to recollect the words of Scripture, and only succeeded 5n part, " by good seamanship escape, Bind live to seventy and eighty, or even, sis in my case, by a judgmatic course sind fair w inds, come to eighty-live and Ihree months la.st Sunday, yet in their Batter days there is but little headway, the craft lying always in the doldrums, amd the rations, too, often short. Five years is long for Lai to wait in suspense, 4oorgirl! Takoandgo and find anoth r girl, therefore," the old man ad vised. - "No," the Norwegian shook his head fadly; " there is only one woman in all the world for me." "Why, there, there," the old Captain cried, " what are young fellows coming to? To cry after one woman! I've given you my advice, my lad, which is good advice, likely to bo beneficial to the boarders, especially them which are permanent, . becauso tho sooner the trouble is over, the better it'll be for meals. I did hear there was a bad egg, yesterday. To think of Itydmiist's com ing to bad eggs! But if a gal will go on fretting after young fellows that is long nince food for crabs, what are wo to ex pect but bad eggs? Marry her, my lad, or sheer oil', and marry some one else. P'raps, when you are out of the way, never to come back again, she will take on with some other chap." Captain Holstius shook Lis head again. " If Lai, after three years of waiting, says she cannot .get him out of her heart why, why there will be nothing todo.no liclp, because sho knows best what is in iier heart, find I would not that she mar ried me out of pity." "Come to pity!" said Captain Zach nriasen, " she can't marry you all out of pity. There's Cap'cn Borlinder and Cap' en Wattles, good mariners both, also after her. Should von like, her to marry them out of pity?" " I need not think of marriage at all," naid tho Norwegian. "I think of Lai's happiness. If it will be happier for her to marry me, or Captain Borlinder, or Captain Wattles, or any other man, I hope that she will marry that man; and if she will be hap pier in remembering her dead lover, hope that she will remain without a hus- oand. All should be as she may most desire." men mo gin nerselt suddenly ap peared in the doorwayj shading her eyes irom ttie sunshine, a pretty picture. with the flour still upon her arms, and her white bib still tied round her. "It is time for your morning beer, Captain Zachariasen," she said. ' Will Vou have it in tho kitchen, or shall bring it to you In the garden?" "1 will take my beer,. Lai," replied the old man, getting up from the box, by the kitchen fire." . lie slowly rose and walked, being much bent and bowed by tho w eight his years, to the kitchen-door. Captain Holstius followed him. There ,w as a wooden arm-chair beside the lire, which was bright and large, for the accomodation of a great piece of veal already hung before it. The old man rat down in it, and took the glass of ale, cool, sparkling, and foaming, from Lai's hand. ' Thoughtful child," he said, holding it up to the light, " she forgeU nothing except what she ought most to for get." "You are pale to-day, Lai," said the Norwegian, gently. ' Will you como with nie upon the river this afternoon ?" She shook her head sadly. " Have you forgotten w hat day this is, of all days in the year?" she asked. Captain Holstius made no reply. "This day, three years ugo, I got his last letter. It was four mouths since tailed away. Ah me! I stood upon the steps of Lavender Dock and saw his nhip slowly coming down the river. Can I ever forget it? Then I jumped into tho boat and ' pulled out mid stream, and he saw me and waved his handkerchief. And that was the last taw of Hex, This day, three years and four mouths ago, and at this very time, in the forenoon." The old man, who had drained his glass and was feeling just a little evan ctut heailiucss, beau to prattle I I I in hisarm-ghair, nothaving listened to their talk. " I nm eighty-five and three mouths, last Sunday; and this is beautiful beer, Lai, my dear. 'Twill be hard upon a man to leave such a tap. With tho Cap 'ens' room: and you, my Lai." "Don't think" of such things, Cr.p tain Zachariasen," cried Lai, wiping away tho tear which had arisen in sympathy for her own sorrows, not for his. " 'Tis best not." he replied, cheerful ly. "Veal, I see. Hoast veal! lie large-handed with tho seasonin', Lai. And beans? Ah! and applc-dumplings. The credit of Kydquist's must be kept up. Hemember that, Lai. Wherefore, awake my soul, and with the sun. Things there are that should be forgot ten. I nm eighty-live and a quarter last Sunday, like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob even Methuselcm was eighty-live oneo when he was little more than a bov. nnd never a gray hair ntid, like the patriarchs at their best and oldest, I have gotten wisdom. Then, listen. Do I, being of this great age, remember the gals that I have loved, and the gals who nave loved me? No. Yet are they all gone like that young man of yourn, gone away and past like gales across tho sea. They are gone, and I am hearty. I shall never see them nunimore: yet I sit down regular to meals, and still play a steady knife and fork. And what I say is this: ' Lai, my dear, wipe them pretty eves with your best silk pockel nandkercher, put on your best frock, and go to church in it for to bo mar ried.' " "Thank you. Captain Zachariasen," said the girl, not peril)', but With a quiet dignity. " Do not," the old man went on his eyes kept drooping and his words rambled a little " do not listen to Nick Borlinder. He sings a good song, and he shakes a good leg. Yet he is a rover. I was once myself a rover." She made, no reply. Ho yawned slowly ami went on. " He thinks, he does, as no woman can resist him. I used to have the same persuasion, and I found it sustain ing in a friendly port." ' I do not suppose," said Lai, softly, " that I shall listen to Captain Borlin der." " Next," tho old man continued, "there is Cap'en Wattles. Don't listen to Wattles, my dear. It is not that he is a Yankee, becauso a Cap'en is a Cap'en, no matter what his country, and I was, myself, nee a Dane, when a boy, nigh upon eighty years ago, and drank corn brandy, very likely, though I have forgotten that time, and cannot now away with it. Wattles is a smart seaman; but Wattles, my dear, wouldn't make you happy. You want a cheerful lad, but no drinker and toper like torlindcr, nor so quiet and grave as Wattles, which isn't natural, afloat nor ashore, and means the devil." Here he yawned again, anil his eyes closed. " Very good, sir," said Lai. " Yes, my dear yes and this is a very comfortable chair." His head fell back. The old man was asleep. Then Captain Holstius drew a chair to the kitchen door, and sat down, sav ing nothing, not looking at Lai, vet with the air of one who was watching over and protecting her. And Lai sat beside the row of freshly made dumplings, and restd her head upon her hands, nnd gazed out into the churchyard. Presently her eyes filled with tears, and one of them in each eye over llowed and rolled down her cheeks. And the same phenomenon might have been witnessed directly afterward in the eyes of the sympathetic1 Norweegee. It was very quiet, except, of course, for the screaming of tho steam engines on the river, ami the hammering, yo-ho-ing nnd bell-ringing of the Commercial Docks; and these, which never ceased, were never regarded. Therefore, the calm was as the ealm of a Sabbath in some Galilean village, and broken only in the kitchen by the ticking of the roasting-jack, and an occasional remark made, in a low tone, by a parrot. Captain Holstius said nothing. Ho stayed there becauso he felt, in his con siderate way, that his presence soothed, and, in some sort, comforted the girl. It cost him little to nit there doing noth ing at all. Of all men that get their bread by la bor it is the sailor alone who can be per fectly happy doing nothing for long hours together. He does not even want to whittle a stick. As for us restless landsmen, we must be continually talking, reading, walk ing, fishing, shooting, rowing, smoking tobacco, or in some other way wearing out brain and muscle. The sailor, for his part, sits down and lets time run on unaided. He is accus tomed to the roll of his ship and the gen tle swish of the waves through which she sails. At sea he sits so for hours, while the breeze blows steady and tho sails want no alteration. So passed half an hour. While they were thus silting in silence Lai suddenly lifted her head, and held up her ringer, saying softly: ' "Hush! 1 hear a step." The duller ears of her companion heard nothing but the usual sounds which included the tramping of many feet afar oil'. , "What step?" he asked. Her cheeks were .grown suddenly quite white and a strange look was in her eyes. "Not his," she said. "Oh, not the step of my Rex; but I know it well for all that. The step of one who Ah! listen!" Then, indeed, Captain Holstius be came aware of a light hesitating step. It hailed at the open door (which al ways stood open for the convenience the Captains), and entered the narrow hall. It was a light step, for it was tho step of a bare-footed man. Then the kitchen-door was opened softly and Lai sprang forward, crying, minify: "Wherein he? Where is he? Oh, ho is not dead!" At the sound of the girl's cry the whole sleepy place sprang into life; the dogs woke up and ran about, barking Willi an immense show of alertness, ex actly as if tho enemy were in force with out the walls; the Persian cat, which ought to have known better, made one leap to the palings, on which sho stood with arched back and upright tail, look ing unutterable rage; and the parrots all screamed together. When the noise subsided the new corner stood in the doorway. ' Lai was holding both his hands, crying, and gob bing. Outside tho old parrot repeated: " l'oor Hex Arinigor! Poor Rex Armiger!" Captain Zachariasen, roused from his morning nap, was looking about him, wondering what had happened. Captain Holstius stood waiting to see what wa going to happen. The man, who was slurt in stature, not more than live feet three, wore rough clotb sailor's cap, and was bare foot. H-j was dressed in a jacket, be- a lcrw which lie wore a kind of petticoat, called, I believe, by his countrymen, who ought to know their own language, a "sarong." His skin was a copper lor; his eves dark brown; his face was square, with high cheek-bones; his eyes were soft, full nnd black; his mouth was large, with thick lips; his nose was short and small, with flat nostrils; his hair was black and coarse all these characteristics-stumped him as n Malnv. Captain Zaeharinsrn rubbed his eyos. "Ghosts . ahore!" he munn ired. "Glmst of Dcnf-and-Dumb Dick!" "Who is Dick?" answered Captain Holstius. "Captain Arniigcr's steward samo as was drowned aboard the Philippine three years ago along with his master and all hands. Never, nevermore heard of, nnd he's come back." The Malay man shook his head slow ly. He kept, on shaking it. to show them that, he quite understood what was meant, although he heard no word. "Where is he? Oh, where is he?" cried tho girl again. .... r . . ilien the dumb man looked in her face and smiled. He smiled and nodded and smiled again. " Like a Chinaman in an image,' said Captain Zachariasen. "He can't be a ghost at the stroke of noon lhat s not Christian ways nor Malav manners." But the smile to Lai was like the first cool draught of water to the thirsty tongue ot a wanderer in the desert. Could he have smiled were Bex lying in his grave. A Malav who is deaf nnd dumb is, suppose, as ignorant, of his native lan guage as of Lnglish; but there is an at mosphere of Malayan abroad in his native village out of which this poor fellow picked a language of his own. That is to sav, he was such a master of gesture as in this cold land of self-re straint would be impossible. He nodded and smiled again. Then he laughed aloud, meaning his most cheerful note, but the laughter of those who can neither hear nor speak is a gruesome thing. Then Lai, with shaking fingers, took Irom her bosom a locket, winch she opened and showed the man. It con tamed, 01 course, the portrait 01 her lover. He took it, recognized it, caught her by one hand, and then, smiling still pointed with eyes that looked afar to ward the east. " Lies buried in the Indian Ocean murmured the old man; " I always said it.-1 Lai heard him not. She fell upon the man s neck and embraced and kissed him. " He is not dead," she cried. "You bear. Captain Holstins? Oh, mv friend Hex is not dead. I knew he could not be dead 1 have felt that he was alive all this weary time. Oh, faithful Dick! She patted the man's cheek and head as it be were a child. "Oh, good nnd faithful Dick! what shall we give him as the reward for the glad tidings? We can give him nothing nothing only our gratitude and our love." " And dinner, may be," said Captain Zachariasen. "No.notthe veal.my dear;" for the girl, in her hurry to do something fortius messenger of good tidings, made as if she would sacrifice the joint. " First, because underdone veal is un wholesome even for deaf nnd dumb Malays; second, roast veal is not for the likes of him, but for Cap' ens. That knuckle of cold -pork now " Lai brought him food quickly, and lie ate, being clearly hungry. " Does he understand Knglish?" asked Captain Holstius. "He is deaf and dumb; he understands nothing." t When he had broken bread, Dick stood again anil touched the girl's arm, which was equivalent to saying: " Listen, all of you!" The man stood before them in the middle of the room w ith the open kitch en door behind him, and the sunlight shining upon him through the kitchen window. And then he began to act, after the fashion of that Roman mimic, who was able to convey a whole story with by-play, underplot, comio talk, epi grams, tears and joyful surprises, with out one word of speech. The gestures of this Malay were, as I have said, language by themselves. Some of them, however, like hieroglyphics before the Rosetta Stone, wanted a key. The man's face was exceedingly nu bile and full of quickness. He kept his eyes upon the girl, regarding the two men not nt all. And this, in substance, was what he did. It was not all, because, there were hundreds of little things, every one which had its meaning in his own mind, but which were unintelligible, save by Lai, who followed him with feverish eagerness and attention. Words are feeble things at their best, and cannot describe these swift changes of face and attitude. First, he retreated to the door, then leaped with a bound into the room. Ar rived there he looked about him a little, folded his arms, and began to walk backward; and forward, over- a length six feet. " Come aboard, sir," said Captain Zachariasen, greatly interested and in terpreting for the benelit of all. "This is good niuinmicking, this is." l'hen he began to jerk his hand over his shoulder each time he stopped. And he stood half-way between the extremi ties of his six-foot walk and lifted his head as one who watches the sky. At the same time Lai remarked how, by some trick of the facial muscles, he had changed his own face. His features be came regular, his eyes intent and thoughtful, and in his attitude he was no longer himself, but in appearance Rex Armiger. " They're clever at mummicking and conjuring," said Captain Zachariasen; "I've seen them long ago, in Calcutta, when 1 was in" "Hush!" cried Lai, imperatively. "Do not speak! Do not interrupt." 'The Malay changed in face and atti tude, and was no more Rex Armiger, but himself; then ho held out, his two hands, side by side, horizontally, and moved them gently from left to right and right to left, with an easy wave-like motion, and at (he same time he swung himself slowly backward and forward. It seemed to the girl to imitate the mo tion of a ship Willi a steady breeze smooth water. "Goon," sho cried; "I understand whut you mean.' The man hei.rd nothing, but he saw that she followed him, and he smiled and nodded his head. He became once more Rex Armiger. He walked with folded arms, he looked about him as one who commands and who has tho responsibility of tho ship upon his mind. Presently he lay down upon the floor, stretched out his legs straight, and with his head upon ids hands went to sleep. " Kven the skipper's bunk is but narrow one," observed Captain Zacha riasen, to show that he was following the story, and proposed to be the prim interpreter. The dumb actor's slumber lasted but a few moment's. Then he sprang to hi feet nnd hegan to stagger nhout. He tamped, he groaned, be put his hand to his head, bt rpr, backward and for ward; he presented the nppenrnnce of a man startled by some accident; ho waved his nrnis. gesticulated wildly, put his hands to his mouth as one who shouts. Thou ho became a man who fought. who wai Vti'. .mL -vho threatened, who win struck, trasnhmg all the while with his feet so as to produce the impression of a crowd. 'l'hen he sat. down and appeared to be waiting, and he rocked to anil fro con tinually. Next he went through a series of pan tomimic exercises which were extremely perplexing, for h strove with his hands as one who strives with a rope, and ho made as one who is going hand over hand, now up, now down a rope; and he ran to and fro, but wit Inn narrow limits, and presently he sat down again. nnd nodded his head and made signs as if Ii6 were communicating with a com panion. " l nnner-tinie, said v.apiain .aclia riasen, "or, may be, supper." After awhile, still silting, he made as if he held something in his hand which he agitated with n regular motion. "Rocking the baby," said Captain Zachariasen, now feeling bis wav surely. Lai. gazing intently, paid no heed to this interruption. Then ho waved a handkerchief. "Aha!" cried Captain Zachariasen; "I always did that myself." Then he lay down and rested his head again upon his arm; but Lai noticed that now he curled up his legs and the tears came into her eyes, because sho s,aw that he, personating her Ilex, peciutf l for a moment to despair. [TO BE CONTINUED.] Caught a Husband. In some parts of France marriageable girls are accustomed to pluck, as they return from midnight mass on Christ mas Kve, a sprig of apple-tree, which they put in a vial full of water. The vial is hung in their bed-chamber in front of the window; if one bud blooms before Faster, the mistress is sure to be married before the year ends. Among the servants of a chateau near Alcncou was a chambermaid from Brittany. She was gentle, good-natured, quiet, pious an excellent creature every way, but sho wa.s hunchbacked. Her name was Ursule. Taking advantage of tho d:u-k night she, too, plucked a sprig of apple-tree, sure that nobody saw her. She was mistaken. A fellow-servant saw her, nnd made servants' hall ring with peals of laughter nt poor Ursule's expense. Still they kept the secret among themselves. They all agreed to play a trick on poor Ursule. Faster Eve ono of the journeymen gardeners re moved, the old sprig of apple-tree from the vial in Ursule's hod-chamber and put in its place li sprig covered with blos soms. When Ursule went into her bed chamber she could not believe her eyes. She returned to the servants' hall, her face being radiant with delight as she showed her trophy. The laughter, jeers nnd hootings of her comrades revealed the trick put on her. She stood dumb, confounded, trembling, scarcely able to restrain her tears. Just at this moment the mistress entered the servants' hall. An elderly servant explained the scene to her. The mistress said: "Ursule, tho apple-tree sprig may be trusted; be lieve it; you will be married before Christmas next; you are a virtuous girl; I am sure you will make a virtuous wile; all you want to get it husband is money; the money wanted I will give you." As she spoke, the mistress twined a 1,000 frane bank note around the sprig, end returned it to Ursule. A fortnight after ward the journeyman gardener who had put the trick on her asked her in mar riage, but she refused him (at which he was greatly jeered) and married another.- Frt-iv It I'ajtcr. How They Vote in Greece. a of in a i pal The voting is literally by ballot, each candidate having a ballot-box marked with his name and divided into two chambers, with a tube large enough for the band to lie introduced through it, opening in such a way that the ball em ployed in voting may be thrown to the rigid or left yes or no without its be ing percept iblo to the spectator which of the destinations it has taken. Be hind or in front of each box stands the personal represent alive, of the candidate, whose duty it is to present the ball the voter anil call out, the. name of the candidate, but no indication or persua sion as to the vote is permitted. The voters are registered and the registers printed, copies being furnished to the persons who represent the candidates any other who may desire them, and the votes are cast, not in the districts where the voters reside but according an alphabetical arrangement, the voters whose names begin with A, B or C hav ing their appropriate voting place, gen erally' a church or a school-house, the election taking place Sunday. The voter presents himself nt his quarter, gives his name, which is checked oil' on the printed catalogue and written down a register by otlicials appointed by the local tribunals, afler which scrutiny I voter goes to the row of ballot-boxes, and votes at all in succession. If he is man who has found it difficult to say "no" to the solicitations of tho candidates, he may have promised to vote liniialivcly for everybody, and keep promise, so that his vote is entirely thrown away. The election lasts one day, and with the safeguards I have de scribed leaves slight room for fraud the only form available being that of im personation, presenting oneself in place of another voter before ho has voted and casting a vote in his name; but this is too dangerous to be often tempted. In case of any ballot-box containing more balls than are accounted for by the registers, the surplus votes are deducted from the aflirniat ive vote for the candidate. .The possibility easting two votes i'l the samo box guarded aga'mst as far as possible, the Government furnishing the balls, which are given out one by ono at moment of voting. . It is possible with collusion to commit frauds by casting two negative votes for a candidate, tho extra vole would then be deducted from his affirmative vote; but as each candidate has a friend who watches every vote cast, this possibility is re duced to a minimum.

The Vegetable Garden. to or to on he a In these days of a sennt supply of labor and high prices for it, economy which doei not approach meanness, is oo of the fine nrts. For instance, it is econ omy to hire only good, well-trained farm hands, but it is not economy to set them down to n meanly-furnished table. It is economy to feed your people well, but it is far from economical to hnvo to pur chase nil they eat, A farmer is expected to have something besides salt pork nnd potatoes on his table, and a variety is more economical than meat, wheat Hour, canned goods and store truck generally. Vegetables nre so healthful, so econom ical and so indispensable that it is a sign of a poor farmer, if his table lacks them nt any season of the venr. There is no land on the most productive farm in the country which pays one-third ns well as a well laid out vegetable garden, prop erly planted nnd cultivated. As hand labor is costly, it is both wise nnd eco nomical to dispense with it whenever possible. My experience in market gar dening has proved that all kinds of gar den truck can be grown nnd cultivated by a man or boy, with none-horse single shoved cultivator far more successfully nnd nt far less expense of time and wages than by the employment of any three good men with hoes. A garden for veg etables should have no bushes, trees or perennial plants in it, but should be con venient for the plow and tennis nt all times. It should be long, to save time in turuing.nnd wide enough to supply the family demand. It should be covered Willi good, old well-rotted manure six inches deep plowed under twelve inches. then it should be covered again with manure three inches deep, nnd this last coat should be first buried out of sight. The ground should then be har rowed and cross-harrowed till line, marked in rows twenty-eight inches apart, and left to stand three days before planting. I never plant for a succession but plant earlv sorts for early use, medi, nm sorts for later use, and late sorts for fall use and for storing away for winter. This gives a variety for use through the season, and we do not have the monotony of tho same flavor throughout the season I plant as early as the soil w ill permit hardy sorts m March or April; tender ones in May; but I get "everything as early as possible. I am particular in having pure, true, fresh seeds; this is an absolute necessity, and if u farmer is not a judge, ho must avoid "box seeds and buy direct from some house of estab lished character, if it costs five times as much. Never let a poor crop be laid to bad seed, because that is a sure sign of a bad gardener. Tho time to plant seeds is, as r, rule. when apple tree leaves are as big as mouse's ear. The depth to plant is as rule, about three times as deep as the size of the seed. As soon ns they are planted walk along the rows flat-footed, treading in the seed quite hard, then draw the rake over the row to break up what would become a hard crust afler a few heavy dews or a light shower. Cabbages and tomatoes are, in the hands of most farmers, best planted at once in tho ground where they are to grow, as house grown plants nre usually so badly grown, so long-legged, as to be unable to stand the change to hot days and cool nights, so that they do not recover till the sea son is half over, and never are so fruit ful. Having got thus far, nnd the plants all showing above ground, pay no more attention to them for the season, but attack the weeds with all possible vigor don t allow ono to grow a quarter ot inch high, nnd if tho seed was put properly the crops will not even need thinning. But every plant must have room to grow, both roots and tops. One horse to a cultivator maybe run between the rows as often as every four to days to advantage, and in gathering the vegetables always pick the finest; this will allow the smallest in grow. Jt w surprise novices to find how this simple mode of managing a vegetablo garden will produce the finest, earliest and most succulent products. The faster growth is made, the better they are. Never let the ground bake, and if heavy rains beat the soil down hard, run cultivator through as soon as tho storm is over, to let the roots have air, or plants will stand still as to growth. Cor.
