THE D AIL'S PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER,
LITTLE PODDLESBY. Gordon Stables. Frank de Vaud was climbing up a par ticularly stiff part of a particularly still hilL Sometimes he called in the assistance ct the Alpine stock he held ia one hand, but just as often he clambered on and up without it The muscles of his brawny calves started into view at every step; the leathern half-gaiters he wore could not hide them. He was a handsome and well made man ; any one could see that at a single glance, though he was but a chamois hunter. His face and hands were bronzed with the sun and exposure to the weather, but in his cheeks the red blood of health mantled, and hi3 dark eyes looked ever so soft and good-natured, and when he smiled, as occasionally he was doing now, there was a right merry twinkle about those same eyes, and he showed a set of teeth as white and even a3 a bat's. . "VVhy was Frank de Vaud smiling? Well, one reason was this he was sing ing, and the song he was singing necessi tated an occasional smile. Parenthetically, let me tell you that it spoke volumes for the strength and vigor of his lungs, that he could sing at all while climbing so steep a hilL L ut he had I am bound to say one other reason for smiling, for Frank de Vaud was going to see pretty little bright-eyed Johanna, the goat-herd's daughter, and Johanna loved honest Frank, and he knew it quite well. They were going to be married before a great many months were over, . and his chief reason for visiting her cottage to-night she dwelt a lonir. lonff way up the hill was to press her to " Name the day, the happy day, n as the song says. He stood at length on the lower edge of a kind of broad tableland. A ravine ran right down through the very center of it, a gorge, a canon, call it what you like, only so deep was it that you could barely see the tips of ihe giant spruces and larches that grew in itT Other trees grew sparsely here and there all over the table land. High up on the far-off horizon rose ijue snow-ciau jagguu ih:uk ui iuw ivipa, tinged with the carmine of the setting sun, and the clouds and mists that envel oped them beneath were also tipped with red, shading off lower down into purple, then into gray. But it wasn't on the mountains, nor on the clouds either, that Frank was gazing, but on a charming lit tie chalet still lower down. It was half buried in brushy trees and there wa3 smoke curling up from it On went irank de Vaud, continuing his song. He said kindly good-night to a bevy of girls who were waiting for tho cows to come home. Still higher up he met the cows themselves, and stood aside till they passed. Then he must shake hand3 with the herdsman, and the herdsman laughed and said w I know where you are off to, Frank Vaud, I know. "V e will soon all have a dance. Ah! I know; ha! ha! don't deny it We all know. Good night. Vaud. " Well, Johanna was waiting for him, tind they met as true lovers who are be trothed, and soon to bo wed, usually do meet. They did say that Johanna was the prettiest girl in all the canton, and I think they were not far wrong. Hci dress became her so, too, and the modest way her hair was done up, and her sweet voice, and deep blue thoughtful eyes, and the blush upon her bonny face, and and but there! suffice it to say, she was a charming little mountain maiden, and no one could blame Frank a bit for loving her. But could she name the day, think you? XT.- cV "flit T Hnn' Irnnxxr n cVi ol. ways answered bashfully. "Well, then, " she added on thi3 particular evening, "say in six months'sJtime. " "Oh! dearest, we don t know what might happen before then, " said Frank, somewnat tnougniiuwy, Frank de aud was right. But, " he said, "remember darling, I'll claim you to the very day. So be f ready. " Frank de Vaud was out almost every day in the mountains. A very daring hunter, he! And a very successful one too. His gun, though, was not much to look at; it had many little eccentricities, but as Frank knew them all, and made allowances for them, he wouldn't have given that old gun for one worth double the money. One beautiful afternoon, when high up among the mountains, he shot a chamois a long way down beneath him. It was no easy task to reach it, but he succeeded at last. He sat down beside it. He lit his pipe and began to dream and build castles in the air, or, if he did not build castles, he imagined one sweet little chalet, which would be all his and Hallo! was that a shout from this crevasse far, far below? He listened. Yes, there it was again, ringing and clear, though, owing to the distance, no louder than the voice of a midget "Help! Help! Cooee. Help! Help!" He Vaud looked over the ledge and saw a dark figure in the snow. " Hullo ! " he shouted. " I'll go back for assistance. Keep up your heart Wait " And away went Frank, leaving his gun beside the slain deer. "Wait, indeed! "growled little 3Ir. Pod dlesby to himself. "I'll have to waitl What a fool I was to come away without a guide? I shall lose a good dinner, tool" Little 3Ir. Poddlesby hailed from Ea ling, where he had a fine house and all kind of fine things, his uncle having died heirless, and left him wealthy. So Pod dlesby required to be a clerk no longer in the city. He determined to see the world! A very vulgar, self-conceited little fel low, I'm sorrow to say, was Poddlesby. lie had had an idea, even when a poor clerk, that he was rather attractive than otherwise to the fair sex. but now that he had riches, he deemed himself irresistible. He joined an Alpine club, and it used to be his boast that he never required a guide. Hence we find him at the bottom of the crevasse, where, had he not been found by i rank de Y aud, he would cer tainly have perished before morning, and become food for the eagles. In three hours' time Frank was back with assistance, and Poddlesby was safe to brink, more dead than alive. He was then carried to the nearest chalet, the goat-herd's, where pretty Johanna lived. "IU be as fresh, as a daisy to morrow, " said little Poddlesby, as they put him to bed. But he was not so. He was down with a fever, and for weeks he lay 'twixt death and life. When at last he became conva lescent, nothing could exceed the kindness of Johanna's parents to him, nor, indeed, of Johanna herself. "But of course I shall pay them well for it. " saiii Poddlesby to himself. But was this gratitude, reader? I trcw not Poddlesby was somewhat surprised when, on bidding his host and hostess good-bye, the crisp bank note he tried tc .slip into the hand of the latter was firmly but respectfully declined. They had only done their duty, saic" this honest couple; if they deserved any reward, at all, it would come from Heaven. , , . "Well, " said Poddlesby to himself that evening, when he found himself snug in his hotel, in the town down in the valley, "I don't feel over-strong, I'll stop here a few months and fish, and do . the riv" to tnat cnarmmg johanila. A" sweet child she really is, and I can't do less after all their kindnesses. I'll take her every where, and show her everything. She is too good for that lout of a Frank. I'm not sure that I won't marry her myself. " Have you ever seen a tiny cloud, reader, rising over the sea, or over the hills in a mountainous land? Up and up and up Into the blue sky, getting bigger and wider and darker every minute, till at length the storm breaks and the thunder roars, and all Is chaos and de struction. Just such a little cloud began to rise between Frank de Vaud and Johanna on the very day that Poddlesby commenced paying attentions to our inno cent Swiss maiden, lie brought a gift of rare fruit, more lucious than any which Johanna or her parents had ever eaten before. It must have cost golden guilders. She couldn't offend by refusing to accept it This was the thin edge of the wedge. After this Poddlesby asked Johanna's pa rents t.nd he asked so prettily if she might Le his guide among the hills now and then; he was studying botany, he said. Old fraud that he was, he did not know a fircono from a hazel catkin! I have now come to the disagreeable portion of my little tale, and will hasten over it Poddlesby made himself a very great favorite with Johanna's parents, and they always thought their child safe when with him. Meanwhile the cloud grew and grew 'twix Frank de Vaud and his betrothed, for he wa3 iealous of the insinuating Saxon; and at last the storm burst and the lovers quarrelled and parted. - Frank spent most of his time among the mountains now. He loved that some what ancient gun of his more than ever. But Frank seldom sang. The joy and the happiness seemed clean gone away from his big heart forever and a day. He gave a Httle chalet, at which he had spent so many a pleasans ' evening, a very wide berth indeed. He could not bear the sight of it He would not have gone near it for worlds. He dreaded to look upon Johanna, lest the old love should return with such force that he might be con strained to make a fool of himself that was how he phrased it make a fool of himself, trample on his pride, and own he had been wrong and unjust in his jeal ousy. But was he unjust? He often and often asked himself that question. What right had she to accept the gift3 of that hateful Saxon? How dared she the affianced bride of Frank de Vaud accompany Poddlesby in his wanderings among the hills, and on excursions with him on the lake? Nay, he had been wronged; he never, never, never would forgive licr. Simple minded, innocent Johanna, she, and even her parents, had accepted presents from Poddlesby, but she did not like to seem ungratef uL What harm could there be, she often asked herself, in acting as guide for the poor little Englishman in his rambles over the hills and in his studies? Ah! but many and many a night, for all that, Johanna sobbed herself to sleep. One autumn day, Frank, lying on his side on a bank of snow, upon which the sun was beating so warmly as almost to soften it, spied something black in a crevasse far down beneath him. Presently he saw the something move, next he heard it h dloo. "It is, " cried Frank; "no. It can't be but, by everything that is remarkable, it's nobody else hut Poddlesby! Ay, scream away, my little man. I took you out of one crevasse; now, indeed, you shall be come food for the eagles. Revenge is sweet " Yes, reader, revenge is sweet, but vengeance does not belong to man. Frank lay there for two hours .watching Pod dlesby, then, his better nature pre vailing, he " went : straight t away and got assistance, and in a short time the Englishman from; Ealing was out of dan ger. When he . saw who had again res cued him, Poddlesby positively burst into tears. "Come with me, come with me," he cried, "I shall die else. And he led Frank straight to Johanna's cottage and dragged him. In, and took his half-unwilling hand and placed it in blushing J "hanna s. " I have done you both an injury, " he said, "I have now to crave forgiveness, which I sincerely do. n Well, there was some good in little Poddlesby's heart after all. I need not say that Frank and Johanna were married. Yes, and Poddlesby Mas at the wedding, too, and the most charm ing gift that Johanna had was Poddlesby's. How Fattl Preserves Her Voice. Chicajf o Tribune Interview. I attribute tho durability of my voice to the respect I have paid it and the excel lent care I have always taken of my health. I never strain my voice. While I was at school I learned just what its capa bilities were, and I have never tried to ex ceed them. That is to say, I sing nothing that I cannot sing easily. I won't force my voice in any direction. I do not tie up my throat but I do live ou pure, fresh air. I am reputed to be very indulgent in my tastes, but everybody knows, who knows the first principles of physiology, that I could not sustain my voice and abuse a single law of health. I am very simple in my diet, and more temperate than any of the people with whom I come in contact " Millions of Blows. Chicago Herald. A workman in cutting fifteen-inch files iu a certain French steel works uses a hammer weighing seven and seven-tenths pounds and wears out a handle of holly wood in about one year, after having struck about 11.230,000 blows with the hammer. In cutting triangular files about five inches long, ana in metal somewhat softer than the above, the hammer used weighs two and two-tenths pounds, and the holly handle lasts about two years, and has been used in striking 25,440,000 blows. What an Appalling Thought ! Chicago Ledger. "You've heard about their boring all over the country for natural gas, haven't you, Mr. Flickers?" " Yes, and I'm down on it, too. " "Why so?" "Well, I think it ought to be stopped. How do we know but what the gas was put there to hold the world up, like a balloon? and after it's burnt to a certain point, down we'll go, kerchug. They Were Safe. Exchange. A Chicago man at Plainfield, Iud. . de sired to leave his traveling-bag and over coat while he walked to a place twenty miles distant He put them in a field un protected from thieves, except by the sign, "Small-pox, beware," and when he returned they were right there in the field but they were twenty feet underground, buried by health officers. Exchange. We believe in presents of all sorts Christmas boxes. Aew Year's gifts, birth day presents, especially for children and young people. Make them rejoice because they were born, and rejoice with them. It is well for children not only to receive presents but to make them. Gifts need not be costly to be very precious, and if they are chosen with reference to the tastes or needs of tho recipient thev have a double value.
