I didnQt approveof my mothers idea
of taking city boarders still as she said
as there were only two of them would
not make much difference in our home
i lifeThey
They were an aunt Mrs Morton and
her niece Miss Emily Ives and a strange
contrast they made in both appearance
and demeanor Miss Ives was shrouded
in the deepest of mourning costumes
and a heavy black crape veil completely
concealed her features She was not a
widow That I knew because in writ
ing to engage the rooms Mrs Morton
had called her niece Miss and had
furthermore added that she had sustained
the loss of a friend which had thrown
her into a state of almost hopeless mel
ancholia that Mrs Mortons object in
seeking a country place so far from New
York as the Genesee valley was in the
hope of effecting an ntire change of
scene and thought for her afflicted niece
Mrs Morton joined us at our little rus
tic board but Miss Ives took her meals
in her room refusing to cross the sill of
her door
My curiosity was piqued
Is she illv I inquired of mother on6
dayOh
Oh no said mother she is in per
fect health but when Mrs Morton urges i
her to come out with her and see the i
beautiful scenery she says that the sight
of nature no matter how lovely is hate
ful to her
Mrs Morton says that unless some
thing is done to arouse Miss Ives from I
her lethargy she is afraid that she will I
go melancholy madand Geoffrey Ive
been thinking that you may be able to I
do something to arouse her
I mother I exclaimed starting
What could I possibly do to arouse
her as you call it
My mother replied to my question
What could you do why you could 1
play and sing
This was a startling proposition even
though I was conceded to be the best mu
sician and to have the finest tenor voice i
in all the Genesee valley
But mother I said how can I
who am nothing but an uncultivated
country bumpkin sing before an accom
plished musician as lain sure Miss Ives
must be
Before she sank into this dull and
dreadful state of despondency Miss lye
was passionately fond of music espe
cially sacred music but she will never
listen to a note now if she can help it
Mrs Morton and I have talked it all over
I told her that you have the kind of a
sympathetic voice that would melt the
heart of a stone and she is very anxious
that you should try the experiment
I dont ask you to sing before her
but this afternoon Mrs Morton and I are
going out When we are gone you sit
down to the piano and sing sonic of those
touching things you know so well how to
Eing
When the ladies were well out of the
way I sat down to the piano and very
softly began singing some quaint old
fashioned plaintive hymns Between
each one I paused awhile fully expecting
= a peremptory message from Miss lve > >
for me to stop None came and after a
while I fancied that I heard a light foot
step overheard
Evidently Miss Ives had risn from the
sofa upon which she lay constantly Was
she coming in person to rebuke me for
my temerity My heart beat high with
fearand hope
With my whole soul in my task I rap
idly glided into the old old hymn of
Jordan
As the last words There is rest for
me died away the door slowly opened
and there advanced towards me a being
who seemed to me an angel so fair was
she I had never seen her face until
now but that figure I could never mis
take
It was Emily Ices who stood before
me with eyes upturned as if entranced 1
Sing sing those words again she
murmured
Low almost as her own voice I sang
I have buiWed ms a mansion
That eternally shall stand
And rny stay will not be transient
In that fair and happy laud
On the other side Of Jordan
In the fair fields of Eden
There is rest for the weary
There is rest for me
In the grave only there is rest she
fiighed sinking wearily into a chair
speaking to herself she seemed and un
observant of my presence
I spoke no word but followed up the
advantage I had gained by softly striking
into Herricks Prayer for Comfort
When the hoard of many years
Like a fleet cloud disappears
Aud the futures full of fears
Saviour Saviour comfort me
When the secret idols gone
That my poor heart yearned upon
Desolate bereft alone
Saviour Saviour comfort sac
The effect was most unexpected At
the conclusion of the hymn she sprang
to her feet with a look of amazement
almost of indignation
How came you a stranger she de
manded imperiously to know my sto
ry I w > astonished in my turn but replied
calmly
I know nothing of your story Sliss
IvesThen
Then how came yOU to choose a
hymn to fit it so exactly Ah I see My
aunt has told you
Your aunt his told me nothing 1 as
sure you Miss Ives but it is easy to see
that you are unhappy and I selected a
hymn that I hoped might comfort you 1

How shall I set about it she asked
Begin I said by casting aside
thoe emblems of mourning which I you
wear Go out into Gods sweet air and

healthy and normal state of mind
I thank you she said simply 1

The next afternoon with some mis
givings as to the answer I proposed that
we should make a sort of family party
and visit a few places of interest in the
neighborhood To my surprise and de
light the invitation was accepted I ob
served with great gratification that Miss
Ives no longer wore mourning but a
suit of delicate pearl gray
Mother could hardly conceal her grati
fication at my success and Mrs Morton
fairly bubbled over with joy
September came and still our city
boarders showed no inclination to leave
us Emilys cheeks had resumed their
pristine bloom the roseate hue of health
I had lovod her from the first and as
the charm und beauty of her mind and
character unfolded themselves to me I
adored her The social difference be
tween us my country breeding above
all my poverty held me tongue tied
And so October camethat loveliest of
all months in the country and with it
a not altogether unexpected windfall for
me A suit which for years had been
dragging along in the courts was at last
settled in our favor and mother and I
divided the snug sum of 20000 between L I
us The homestead was partly mine
and would be entirely so at my mothers i
death Why why I was rich laughed I
aloud in my glee and Miss Ives was 1
poor Now why should I not speak
Come what might I would know my
fate and end the suspense which was
eating my heart out And at last my
well guarded secret escaped me I told
her that I loved her andappalled too
late l at my temeritywaited for her to
pronounce my doom or lift me into para
dise
diseMiss
Miss Ives did not seem as surprised as
I had expected nor did she show any re
sentment
She qnly seemed to be thinking but it
was not long before she replied
I do not know whether I love you or
not If I loved that otherwith the
only real love of my life then I do not
love h you but if
But ifif what
If that was only a passing fancy
scattered at once and forever to the
winds by his unworthiness
Oh tell me that it was I inter
rupted
This much I can tell you Geoffrey
she said I owe you the deepest grati
tude that woman ever owed to man and
could the same misfortune befall me as
in my betrothal and you were the wrong
doer I could forgive you as I never can
himThen
Then you love me I cried I am
sure you do for out of love only could
such forgiveness come
And unrebuked I gathered her to my
heart I
I asked if she would be content to live
at the old country homeshe her aunt
with mother and me but if she would
not I would take her back to the great
city for I was rich now A quedr look
passed over her features when I said I
was rich causing me to flush and bite
my lip with mortification remembering
how paltry a sum 10000 must appear
to a girl who had had 30000
Emily acquiesced in all my proposi
tions and arrangements and we were
married most unostentatiously at the
old homestead Emily positively de
clined to invite any of her friends so on
her side her aunt only was present
Emily declared that she wanted noth
ing that reminded her of her old life
Mrs Morton did not like our homespun
ways as well as her niece did and cheer
d her days by having a number of New
York papers sent to her I never looked
it them but one day Emily ran her eye
ore a newly arrived batch and sur
prised me by claiming in a tone of ir
ritation

Turtle as Food
In St Bartholomews or Turtle bay as
the whalers call it where for five months
we lay taking and curing abalones our
food was chiefly turtle This little har
bor swarmed with them After a few
hours hunt oneof our whaleboats would
return with five or six of these unwieldy
creatures in the bottom some so large
and heavy as to require hoisting over the
side Often the green fat under the
calli pee or under shell lay three inches
in thickness I served up turtle fried
turtle stewed quarters of turtle roasted
and stuffed like loins of veal turtle plain
boiled and turtles flippers boiled to a
jelly and pickled turtle is a variously
flavored being Almost every portion
has distinct and individual taste After
all old Jake our black boatsteerer
showed us the most delicate part of the
turtle and one previously thrown away
This was the tripe cleansed of a thin
inner skin When the cabin tabc had
once feasted on stewed turtle tripe
they called for it continuously After
many trials and much advice and sug
gestion I l learned to cook accept
ably the abalone The eatable part of
this shell fish when fresh is as large as a
small tea saucer There arc two varie
ties theovhite and black The white is
the best Cut up in pieces and stewed
as I attempted at first the abalone
turned out stewed bits of guttapercha
fried it was fried guttapercha Then
a man from another vessel came on
board who taught me to inclose a single
abalone in a small canvas bag and then
p und it to a jelly with a wooden mallet
This process got the honey out of the
abalone The remains of four or five
abalones thus pounded to a pulp and
then allowed to simmer for a couple of
hours < would make a big tureen of the
most delicious soup man ever tasted
every drop of which on cooling hard
ened to the consistency of calves foot
jelly When my cabin boarders had
once become infected with abalone soup
they wanted me to keep bringing it
along The Americans do not know or
use all the food in the sea which is good

Amateur Entertainments
Most amateur entertainments are given
hi places where there are no regular
stages and in such a case a platform
should be built about three feet high and
ten or more deep the full width of the
room Curtains of canton flannel can
b e used or large screens if such are
more convenient While the characters
are being posed for tableau or the stage
being set for any scene the piano or or
chestra can be played as in a theatre
and for that reason the piano should be
outside of the curtain or on the floor A
dressing room should be parted off on
each side of the stage
There are books which have many
bright little comedies requiring two
three or four characters Among them
are A Happy Pair only requiring
two persons A Fair Encounter need
ing but two women or Weeping
Wives needing four This last was
translated from the French by Mrs
James R Pitcher of Short Hills N J
There are many others which are bright
and good Let the manager beware of
tragic pieces or scenes from Mac
beth Mary and Elizabeth or Romeo
and Juliet Let everything this kind
be light and sprightly It is within the
possibilities for a man or woman who is
a good manager of parlor entertain
ments to write a piece that shall be full
of amusement because novel and new
and novelty is to be sought forOlie

WHEN THE RAT WENT UP
How Tiliiatacho Agreed to Pay Hs Win
ters Board
There are a number of the older resi
dents of St Paul who remember Mus
tache an original river character who
was also a familiar figure in all the river
towns between St Paul and St Louis
No one however knew him by any
other name than Mustache He was a
raftsman by profession and a fighter by
instinct Though weighing but 150
pounds for a number of years between
18G8 and 187S he was called the best
man on the upper Mississippi His last
trip for the season left him stranded in
Muscatine la late one fall It was pos
sible for him to work his way up to the
pineries on some steamboat but Mus
tache decided to play the gentleman for
one winter at least and accordingly
sought out a German hotel proprietor
and stated his case
I want to board with you this win

well knowing that she can never leave them

THE DIAMOND CHARACTER
The beauty of character is to reflect God
and just so far as we color this reflection
of God with anything of self so far do we
fail of that clarification of inward thought
and outward life which makes us like him
The diamond is the perfect type of charac
ter Every other precious stone reflects
the light colored by its own texture Only
the diamond reflects light in its essential
purity This is the secret of its superior
ity among gems Other gems may be beau
tiful but the diamond is transcendently
beautiful Young Christians be diamond
characters Catch the divine light and
give it forth again uncolored by selfishness
of any sort Be so simple and so sincere
that all the beauty and all the truth com
ing to you out of the Godlife and the
Christlife shall shine through you into the
lives of others and help to make them also
transmitters of light It is selfcons ious
ness that spoils the beauty of character
The secret of true living is to lose the in
termediate sense of self and think only of
that wider relationship of God and neigh
bor Keep thou thy soul translucent
that thou mayest never see its shadow
Zions Herald
i
THE INABILITY TO PRAY
One of the curious facts about the ordi
nary Catholic whether cultivated or not
is his inability to pray He may be able to I
read the prayer book through to follow the
mass with sincere devotion to take an in
telectual pleasure in reading Tne Imita
tion of Christ but thc idea of making
prayer the expression of his feelings and
his convictions the means of union with
God seems foreign to nine persons out of
ten This is not characteristic of the igno
rant alone or of the uneducated It is just
as marked in the scientist and the littcra
teur The doctrine of the communion of
saints is well understood by Catholics as
far as the catechism teaches it but the ap
plication of the doctrine is not thought of
too frequently To pray for the sick and
the dead is a common Catholic practice but
to pray for the tempted brethren through
out the world for those without the fir ht
of faith for those leading lives of sin for
the poor and the outcasts are customs that
do not seem to find favor with tho present
generation The cause of course lies in
the training of the young If they are
taught simply to say prayers bv rote they
will never say anything else Even in our
academies and colleges the teaching how to
pray in its best sense is very rare If it
were oftener done we can conceive that the
new generation would show a much deeper
regard for holy things and for holy living
Catholic Review
DO THE DEAD STILL REMEMBEr L5l
To the question whether the dead con
tinue to be conversant with earthly occur
rences and scenes and hence see and
know those whom they have left behind
no answer can be given either affirmatively
or negatively on the basis of mere reason
and so far as we know PO answer is either
directly or suggestively given in the Bible
We are hence in a state of gnoiance on
this point and must so remain as long as
we continue in the present world We re i
member our departed friends as we knew
them when living and think of them
as we hope they are in the spirit woi Id
and assuming their continued existence
with the retention of theintelleitual facul
ties which they had when on earth we c tu
reasonably infer that they remember itu
as they knew us to be when dwelling with
us in this world of trial We may thus in
the absence of present intercourse with
them use our past knowledge in a quasi
communion with them and it stems highly
probable that they may do the same thing
in a like communion with us Though
absent they are not absolutely lost to us
and we may reasonably conclude that we
are not absolutely lost to them What has
occurred is a separation and for the time
being a suspension of all conscious present
intercourse between the living and the
dead This lost intercourse may be add
presumably will be renewed hereafter be
tween those knowing and known to each
other vho shall hereafter be dwellers in
the same world Those who precede us s in
death Will notreturn to us We must K
to them This was King Davids idea We
