proved in vain. i?he had been spirited
away, as her sad mother answered. The
vengeance of the law had been visited in
full force upon those left behind, and
Jiapai was watched, to see it he was in
any way concerned with the disappear
ance oi r-.ua.
I. ut the surveillance under which he
was placed elicited nothing. The young
girl had gone in so mysterious a manner
that pmsuit Wits impossible, and it was
suggested that instead of suflering by the

lhe lives of the rest of the family was
unsat iittcd, sine this daughter, so famous
for her beauty, had extra ieti. S he
ordered the imprisonment of Hapai. in
l s, uirougn mm, to team where the
young girl was secreted
Put Hapai lielonged to a proud line of
nieis, aim me tyrant was warned that,
unless h,. was at once set at liberty, he
would invoke an insurrection which
neither he nor his King's government
could quell.
So the young chief was lilterated after
but one day's incarceration in the tv
rant's stronghold.
Hapai was a splendid swimmer, and
gained great fame anions his fellow jearl
livers, because he could remain under
water so long. It was to them almost
incredible that he could descend to the
lnittoni of the sea after pearls, and re
maining there twice, even three times as
long as the others could, he would rise to
the surface without appearing to have
sudi-red any remarkable inconvenience
by bis long submersion.
He still kept up his search for pearls
at the Imttoni of theWa, and might have
liecn met daily in his fishing boat along
shore, diving here and there as he thought
"Why dive by the rocky shore?"
a.-ked one of his neighliors, who passed
him the next day after his release from
"The richest jiearls sleep in the deepest
water," was the answer bv the voun
" True, but not by the rocky shore? ''
" Yet you see I find them.'"'
" No one ols finds pearls under the
cliff," rejoined the other, as he pulled
away to ground more prolific.
" Hapai," he continued, resting on his
cars tiir a moment.
"What think you, "oecaine of Eoa ? "
"flood spirits have taken her, I hope."
" Thev say she drowned herself."
" Possibly, but I think not."
' You should know," replied the other,
again resinning his oars and singing as he
pulled seaward.
Hapai, sickened bv the tyranny under
which he lived, resolved to emigrate to
the Feji Islands'. Of course if his pur
pox were known he would have been
prevented by the tyrant, but he kept 1 i
secret pit rjxses.o well guarded that no
suspicion was amused.
n a certain night he arranged so that
his deiH'iidants, male and female, should
1e prepared to leave Vavaoo at a mo
ment's notice, and all were secretly em
barked in I touts, with such few necessary
1 effects as form the domestic surroundings
f these poor Islanders.
The day was just breaking when the
little group of lioats pulled away from
the Iiaml. Once fairly embarked, and
a con jle of league from shore, they
feared no pursuit, lcsides they were or
ganized and armed so that no o'inary
party .-nt to follow them would venture
lo attack them.

It is too late.
" Perhaps not," he replied.
" I do not understand, my son."
" Hold the boat here," he said.
He had now reached the deep water
which laves the precipitous shores of
IIoiiga, aad divesting himself of the
slight clothing which the custom of the
longa Islaoders, save the single garment
about the loins, he bade them a brief fare

said one of the wen in a boat, with man-
nest trouble in his voice.
At a moment when his long absence
was causing the greatest consternation in
the lioats, a few bubbles apieared on the
water, and- following them there arose to
the surface the form of Hapai, and in
his arms he bore the lost lin his Tonga

mistaking the facts; their eves did not

to whence she had ranve, t0 which the
young chief promised Id reply anon.
The boAts Were once more, directed

for an organized party to be dispatched
after the fugitive chief and his people,
and the two boats containing the emissar
ies of the tyrant could be een pulling in
the distance.
Hapai had prepared for ellch an emer
gency, and How bade the people raise the
single sail with which each boat was
provided, but at the same time he or
dered there to Ireef h using the oars.
The pursuers had only their oars to
depend upon, and it was therefore im
possible for them to hold their own a to
distance; still they pulled r!i after the
fugitives for i?otte time, until it was only
too pla'n that they could not reach theni,
and they were compelled to turn back
and report their failure to the tyrant
whose orders they had attempted to fill.
Hapai and his adherents had made
good their escape, and now the young
chief found time to explain how and
where his young bride had heeri secreted.
jS early a year nerofe, while diving lor
learls, he had made the discovery of a
4-eave beneath the sea, only accessible by
an entrance lathoms below the surface or
the waves.
At first he was about to promulgate
his curious experience, but something
whisjiered to him to keep his secret, and
lie did so.
When Eoa was condemned to deatV
with the rest of the family, he deter
mined to rescue her at least, from the
number, and lo secrete her there. He
persuaded her to trust herself to him
They entered a canoe. The place of her
retreat was explained to her on the wav,
These women swim like mermaids. He
sprang into the sea and she dived after
him, rising in the wonderful cavern,
which was fifty feet long, with natural
galleries worn by the action of the sea.
Here her lover brought the choicest
tood and rich clothing, mats tor her bed
and sandel wood oil to perfume herbodv.
When he was ostensibly diving for pearls
he was only seeking his " pearl of great
price," his dearly loved Eoa. The only
sadness she knew Was ciused by the
tragic fate of her kindred.
The boat, tinder the direction of the
young chief, safely landed at the Fiji
Islands, where Eoa became the happy
wire ot Hapai.
Here they remained until the death of
the tyrant ot avaoo, and they then re
turned to their native land.
The descendants of this happy couple
still tell this story of how thei.- ancestor
delivered his bride beneath the sea.
Schiller's Sister.
Miss Wager writes in the Galaxv
She was born in 1777 and christened
Caroline Christiane the youngest sister
ot riednch Schiller but she was always
called "Nane" or " Nannette," and her
short lite ot eiguteen years was strangely
sau, Driinant, ana beautiiui. Mie was
but five years of age when t?chiller left
home, bearing the burden of his father's
reproaches, and it was not until she was
fifteen that she again saw him. But dur
ing these ten years, while Friedrich was
struggling into love1 and fame by the
poet s power and charm, the Schwester
lein Naunette was at home, learning, re
citing his poems, talking of the " wonder
ful, beloved brother," and unconsciously
unfolding into a poet herself, without at
a1! comprehending it. The.Schillerswere
poor Xannette was a girl and between
the circumstances of poverty and mis
fortune of belonging to the sex at that
time of minor importance in Germany
her position was in no wise one to stimu
late or encourage the unfolding of genius.
The father Schiller was conservative,
strongly opinionated, unyielding, and
rather tyrannical; the mother was loving,
gentle, but possessing marked strengt h of
character, and sacrificing herself in every
possible way to the advancement and hap
piness of her children. Neither parent
was blind to the superior endowments of
Nannette her beauty, her quick intelli
gence, her vivacity, her marked resem
blance to Friedrick. But matrimony was
the chief end of a German maiden's
career, especially the one grand resource
of one untitled and without fortune.
8o, with sober, practical sense, the father
and mother thought the accomplishments
of housewifery of more use than "book
learning." The eldest sister, Christo-
phine, married one Keinwald, contrary to
ler mother's advice, sw he was of gloomy,
lifhcult humor; but, womanlike, she
thought she could transform him with the
unshinc of her nature, and then her
parents wanted "so much to see her set
tled." The second sister, Louise, a trustv.
domestic girl, was betrothed to a young
pastor. But the little annette, lxrn as
she was for something quite different from
her humble home life, met her fate like a
gay youngphilosopher.and washed dishes,
sewed, spun, cooked, and baked whilesing-
mg the songs ot her latherland and de
claiming her brother's poems. She had a
wonderful memory, and the ioenis once
or twice read over were fully retained in
her mind. At first she learned them
because " Friedrich wrote them," and the
rhythm pleased her; then as she repeated
them over she gradually caught their
meaning, and in all trermany Schiller
had no other appreciator quite like his
little sister, whom he scarcely more than
remembered. 8o great was her passion
for declaiming that she would place
chairs to represent different characters in
the dramatic poems, and mounting one.
and then another, impersonated them.
Ventilation- of Closets. Too little
attention is paid in the construction of
closets to their proper ventilation. It is
not always convenient to have a closet
door stand open, and, if it were, full
ventilation cannot le secured in this
way. There should be a window or an
opening of some sort from the closet to
the outer air or to a hall, so that a cur
rent of air might remove any unpleasant
odors arising from anything that has bten
worn, from shoes, or from anything else
kept in the closet. A garment that has
hung up for a length of time in a close
closet is as unfit to wear, unless it has
leen thoroughly aired, as though the
unwholesome vapors it had absorbed
were visible to the eye. The charm of
clothing new and clean lies far more in
the aKsence of these vapors than many
people are aware.

capital to the amount of $4,000,000.
There is not only considerable com
plaint among the members ef the order
about inviting prominent politicians to
address Grange picnics, but the order is
suffering therefrom, and iiot Very com
plimentary remarks Were made by out
siders about the order eeing (compelled,
as they say, to iresort to such material.
We aie capable of driving our own team;
then let us do it.
As the .National Grange meets at
Louisville soon next month it would
be well for Grangers that have the good
of the order at heart to pass resolutions
demanding a reduction of fees ahd dues
to at lcft!t three-fburths of what they are
now. There is no doubt that every
Grange in the lniid desires a reduction
of this kind, hut if we all neglect to at
tend to it nothing will be done. See to
it at once.

Master Adams asd EaILroads.
Dudley ,W. Adams, Master of the' Na
tional Grange, is being assailed on all
sides because he has accepted the Pres
idency of a railroad. From the best in
formation that we can obtain he has not
done anything that will injure either the
cause or his own reputation when the
facts in the case are fully known The
road appears to be owned by and run in
the interest of farmers. It is hot rail
roads that the order opposes, but the
corrupt rings and monopolies that con
trol them. Kailroads are as necessary to
the farmer as to any other class, and we
know of no good reason why brother
Adams should not be Master of the Na
tional (Jrange and the President of a
Railroad Company at the same time, so
long as he fills both offices satisfactorily
and devotes his energies to the welfare
of the order.
Oae of Horace Grecley'g Old Lettei 8
New York, July 21, 1857;
M y Dea r Si r : Seeing in lhe Tribune
the death of your sweet child, whom I so
well remember, impells me to write you
a word. I offer no consolation, and I
need not assure you of my sympathy.
But you and your wife are still young
and hopeful, other children will doubt

nor fail to remember her with a pensivj
and chastened sadness, yet you will liv

wisely prescient and merciful in the
chastisement which "smites but to heal."
Let me give you in thia connection a
leaf from my experience.
I have had seven children of whom
five are gone. Of three sens none sur

ihey were reclaimed. I need not say

thought I dould never be so sorely bitten
thenceforth. Yet in due time there
came another, not so delicate, so beauti
ful, so poetic ; yet so loving, so tender,
so devoted to me, that I thought I
had never been understood before. I
cannot rememler that during his six
j ears' abode with me he ever wished to
contravene my will.
I left, January 14, for that hard
western tour in brave spirits and good
general health. At Galesburg after
leaving roll, I had a letter dictated by
him, leaving him in excellent health. 1

Pa., on my way home, when a telegram
reached me during my lecture, stating
that he was dangerously ill of croup. I
hastened home next evening at eight
o'clock only to find him dead an hour
before, after enduring a severe operation
and extreme suffering. With him I

"(vabriel C'onroy."
Bret Harte's first novel begins as a
serial in Scribner's for Novenber, and
opens with the following description of
the Sierras in winter:
Snow. Everywhere. As far as the
eve could reach fifty miles, looking
southward from the highest white peak.
rnnng ravines ana guicnes, ana drop
ping from the walls of canons in white
shroud-like drifts. Fashioning the divid
ing ridge into a likeness of a monstrous
grave, hiding the bases ot giant pines
and completely covering young trees and
larches, rimming with porcelain and bowl
like edges of still, cold lakes, and un
dulating in motionless white billows to
the edge ot the distant horizon. Snow
lying everywhere over the California
Sierras on the 15th dav of March. 1848,
and still falling.
It had been snowing for ten days;
nowing in Inelv granulated itowder, in

or dropping In long level lines like white
lares from the tumbled and broken heav
ens, but always silently. The woods
were so choked with it, the branches were
so laden with it; it had so permeated,
filled and possesed earth and sky; it had
so cushioned and muffled the ringing
rocks and echoing hills, that all sound
was deadened. The strongest gust, the
fiercest blast awoke no sigh or complaint
from the snow packed, rigid files of
forest. There was no cracking of bough
nor crackle of underbrush ; the over
laden branches of pine and fir yielded
and gave way without a sound." The
silrn-G was vast, measureless, complete.
.or could it be said that anv out
ward sign of life or motion changed
the fixed outlines of this stricken land
scape. Aimve there was no play of
light and shadow, ouly the occasional
deetx-uing of storm and night. Below,
n t bird winged its fl:ght across the white
t xanse, no lieast haunted the confines of
the black woods; whatever of the brute
nature might have once inhabited these
wilitudes had long since flown to the low
l.inds. There was no track .r imprint ;
whatever foot might have left its mark
tijHin this waste, each succeeding rnow;
lall obliterated all traces or record'
Every morning the solitude was virgin
and unbroken ; a million . tiny feet had
stepped into the track and filled it up.
Ahd yet, in the center of this desolation,
in the very stronghold of this grim for
tress, there was the mark of human toil.
A few trees had been ielled at the en
trance of the canon, and the freshly cut
chips were but lightly covered with snow.
They served perhaps to indicate another
tree " blazed" with an ax, and bearing a
rudely shaped emgy ot a numan hand,
pointing to the canon. Below the hand
was A eqiiare strip of canvas, securely
nailed against the bark and bearing the
following inscription ;

The language of suffering is not apt to
1h artistic or studied, but I think that
rhetoric could not Improve this actual
record. So I let it stand, even as it stood
this 16th djiy of March, 1848, half hidden
by a thin film of damp snow, the snow
whitened hand stiffened and pointing
rigidly to the fatal canon like the finger
of death.

Changes in the Earth..
lhe date ot man s appearance on our
globe (to say nothing of the beginning of
organic lite) will probably never oe ascer
tainable beyond a rude approximation ;
but this much at any rate i certain, that
it " creatioh is to be spoken or at all,
it must be taken, not as a single isolated
act, but rather as an unbroken series of
productions, extending trom the dimmest
past to our time, and destined doubtless
to extend beyond us. Jti very body Knows,
says the Westmister Review, what the
nature of the record is, everybody knows
that the crust ot our planet, so lar as we
have sounded it, is composed entirely of
mud, deposited in gradual successive
layers under water ; that these layers
through the slow but constant undula
tions of the crust, have been upheaved
again, unlated to the enormous thickness
ot sixty or seventy thousand feet ; and
finally, that each deposited as it harden
ed, preserved imbedded in the mud the
shells and bones of creatures which died
at the time of its formation. Similar
formations are continuing at present ;
the soundings made in the Atlantic ocean
preparatory to the laying of the tele
graphic cable, prove that- over the whole
of the immense area explored (1,000
miles from east to west, and about 700
miles from north to south) an exclusively
fine chalky mud is being deposited, con
sisting solely of the hard parts of animals
which have lived and perished in these
regions. 1 ne ciiaiKy mud win graauany
harden into limestone rocks ; jtossibly
some day these rocks will be gradually
upheaved, nist as the Himalavas were,
pnd the hew continent thus formed, sub
jected to the wearing influence of air and
rain, will furnish the mud which is to
bury new creations. Let us not smile
incredulously, far greater changes have
been wrought than those, and as far as
we can judge, by the same influences.
When Scotland stood higher than it
stands at present, it was covered with ice
descending from the Grampians ; later,
it became an archipelago, and marine
sand with phells was spread over the
former glacial drift ; later still, the land
emerged again, glaciers were reformed,
though probably to less extent, and
Britain was connected with the conti
nent ; lastly, minor changes separated
England froan the continent, and Ireland
from England.
African Exploration.
The explorations of Stanley in the
heart of Africa are of the utmost geo
graphical interest and importance. He
fs a plucky, iclear-headed man, who push
es his wayi through difficulties like a
steam engine through a snow drift; and,
considering the delays and slowness of
former expeditions, the rapidity of his
movements and the promptness of his
com?nunications are quite remarkable.
He has too much business on hand to be
sick, and is too active and energetic and
vigilant to be entrapped by the treacher
ous natives or captured by the malaria.
It is quite evident that the natives stand
in awe of this man, who seems to he a
sort of locomotive in boots, though they
shoot his men when out of his sight with
out hesitation or remorse, and his two
letters came stained with the life-blood of
one of the Khedive's oflicers. Stanley
has now demonstrated by actual observ
ation and surveys that Livingstone,
whose health and mind failed in the last
years of his long African sojourn, was
mistaken in supposing the Victoria Ny
anza was a chain of five lakes connected
with each other. He finds that Speke,
whose explorations were made in 1862,
was right in his opinion that the Victoria
Nyanza is one body of water; but what
Speke took for two islands Stanley finds
are peninsulas in this great inland sea.
This is undoubtedly the upper reservoir
of the Niie, and should future explor
ations confirm the importance of the
Biver Shimeeyou we shall have the key
to the whole Nile system, and the mys
tery of Africa will lie henceforth an open
secret. It is a matter of national pride
that these final explorations are made by
an American, who, though he follows
the trail of distinguished explorers,
scnis to have a capacity of gathering up
the results of their discursive discoveries
and- observations, and combining and
correcting them, and supplementing them
with original explorations of his own,
which are quite as important as any that
have been inade ;
Theses African explorations are 6f Vast
ly more consequence and practical utility
than anything that has been or is likely
to be discovered in the Arctic regions,
where so much treasure has been spent
and so imany lives have been thrown
away. Africa is not only a puzzle ,tp

civilization to solve, and tnrow s down its

tions which will ask themselves with
increasing frequency and force in coming
years. IVlh Dal ton has suggested that an
attempt :te triage to eoloni?e..itt with
Chinese. The plan has plausibility. It
has been found that the Chinese who
have settled in the Oceanic Islands have
developed quite remarkable faculties of
thrift and enterprise and government
and have improved considerable on the
home type. But with Europe over
crowded with population and ali her
great cities suffering from an excess of
poor and ! perishing classes, it certainly
seems that the key of African civilization
need not be sought in eastern Asia among
the Mongolian races. It only wants the
ability to organize colonization on a
grand scale and carry it out with the
appliances. of modern science and art and
the modern spirit of humanity to make
Africa a power in the civiljsied world and
a means of renovating Europe. Daily
. The Jews.
Some curious, and in some respects,
surprising, particulars hye lately been
collected and published in it French pa
per, respecting the Jews. Although the
Israelites; hold such an important place
in trade, commerce and finance, and are
to be iilet with itt every quarter of the
world, it appears that they are to be
found in ' least numbers, in some .of the
most cUmmerHai eHuhtries, and in rhost
numbers in some of the least prosperous
and enterprisingstates. Moreover, widely
as they are scattered, and numerous as
thev appear to be, it seems from the
statistics in question that the census of
the whole race falls short of five millions
of souls. In France, where there exists
little or none of the stupid and barba
rous prejudice against the Jews which
prevails in some countries, and where
one would think there was a wide field
for the peculiar talents of the race, there
are only 46,000 Jews. In America, ap
parently a still more favorable country,
there are only o.iie hundred and twenty
thotiSiiHd JgrtielitM; Oh ths Other hand,
in wretched, unprosperous iiiid down
trodden Poland the Jews are to be found
in greatest number, one out of every
seven of the inhabitants being a Hebrew.
One can understand that there should be
a few Jews in Spain, but it is surprising
they should be almost as rare in Belgium.
In Sweden" there are , cohiparatively few
Jews, but. they abound iii Hamburg,
Austria, and Iloumaniain the proportion
of one to every twenty-four inhabitants.
In Hamburg and Austria there is abun
dant employment for their talents, but
in Eoumania there cannot be any great
scope for their commercial and financial
instincts. Ireland always boasts of being
the only country in the "world in which
the Jews were never persecuted and
indeed, whether at home or abroad, the
Irish always manifest a certain respect
for the Israelites but Ireland has hardlj'
had the opportunity of persecuting the
race, for eVeh..at the present clay there
are not three hundred Jews in the whole
country, Norway stands lowest on the
list, after Ireland, there only being
twenty-five Jews in that countrv. An
interesting addition to these statistics
(if it were possible to secure it) would
be the amount of wealth in the hands of
the less than five millions of Jews that
abide upon, if they do not inherit the
earth. Considering the enormous wealth
possessed by only a few well-known indi
viduals of the race, such a return would
doubtless show a high average per head.
