day the luggers lind
ALI at iwiehor in tho bay, while
the btiHjr fishermen had mended nctn.
The Andro himself, tho
gayest among thctn, had warned
them not to venture from shore.
'There will be u Htorm, 1 ntn nfruld,"
wan IiIh luconlo warning, given every
now and then between tho mirth and
gibes of Itia fellow-fishermen. So, ah
they were to celebrate tho betrothal
of. Andre und of Marie Dlzmi that
night, they remained at shore, In an-'
tlclpatlon of the feast that wnH to
come.
The fflrlM of Chenlere were In a flutter
of exjeetation. Tongues were
not Htlll u moment that day, whllu
the belles tried nnd fitted their
'finery, nml arranged ribbons, In anticipation
of the event. Mnrie Illon
wan n great favorite tin well as iv
great beauty.
" Day wore on, and evening came,
and sunset; suiiNt't, with nil its wondrous
beauty, gloriously golden and
ktrnngely awesome. Strange that
few noted those clouds portending u
storm, for tho fluherfolk were
on tho nlert for such sign. Then
dunk enmo over the Island.
When dome of the guest were still
n thrlr way to llla n's, n light rain
began to fall. "Strange," muttered
Glodc, on he hurried hl family to
the friendly lights that gleamed from
the windowH of the Hi.nns. Hut he
hid hi fear, nnd made merry with
the rest. Tho fiddlers merrily tuned
away, the light feet of the dancer
never faltered nnd spirits rnn high.
At ten eamo supper. Old lllznn
nroso to give the toast. "Friends,"
sulci he, "this In truly n happy
And I nnnounco to you the
bctrotbnl of Mario and of Andre.
You have known her from childhood,
all of you. You have Keen her grow
Into the dear, good daughter she Ih.
You have known Andre, nnd you
know him to have proved himitelf
worthy of my Marie. Friends, offer
congratulation."
There were shouts of "We do, we
do." Then came a call for Andre.
"A speech, n speech," Home one
cried.
Suddenly a tottering figure appeared
at the door. It wns old
ttivs finite nun n, who had refused
to come to the fenst. He pointed n
wavering finger at Andre. "Yen,
Ind, Hpoak, for thin In thy lust
night."
Tor a moment Indignation ran high.
But for tho ago of the fisherman he
would liava been unceremoniously
ejected from tho hall. Hut the aged
have ever been respected among the
ftlmplo folk of Chenlere, nnd he wan
tolerntcd as he hnd been earlier In
the day when he dampened their
ardor by dlncouroglng tho holding of
the fenst.
"Oh, atop cronklng. Mnnuel," cried
Alcuo. "Come, give him some wine,
Gnnpnrd, give him Home wine. It will
warm up bin old blood. Then ho will
alng, inHtend of croaking." Higher
nnd higher the music rose, nnd loud
er and gnyer became the guests.
tho wind blew a gale and the
rnln enmc In sheets. And fctlll the
mirth went on.
"Let Manuel give us n toniit," cried
Gnspnrd, who had proffered tho old
fl she rni an the wine nt Alccc's
"Aye, nye," hald th boaiy Manuel,
"a toast it shnll be. And not to your
fair girl. For never will Hhe bo n
bride. Never will the wedding fenst
be known. Tho bells Khali not ring
ave It be for u corpse that has been
taken from the water. For It is
written, my brothers, these two shnll
not wed." Tho cracked voice becamo
high nnd clenr, the tones were even
rcHonant, s& earncRt was the spenker.
"Unhnppy Manuel," Blgbed the wife
of Hian. "lie has suddenly loHt his
wits. Hut why should ho come here?
For shame, to frighten my little
Marie," For Mnrie had grown white
and trembled. Andre, though, snt
with clenched fists nnd grinding
teeth. He, would settle with old Manuel
in the morning.
A ull upon tho crowd. Tho fiddlers
sat ngape, the guests were chattering
volubly. Some laughed derisively,
whHe others quaked with fenr.
"For I say those two shall not
wed," old Mainiel's voice went on. "I
huy It is writ, my brothers, that they
must -He."
Then men jumped to their feet.
Old Mine, lllznn screamed.
"Shnmc, shinnc," cried some, while
others tried to still tho wild-eyed
fisherman.
"It 1b useless, my brothers," he
N cried. "Not ony they, but wo nil
uhall die, must die, und to-night.
Even now It Ih ton Into to return to
your homes, You, Unptlste, think
you will go I'"1''4 to Grand Isle tonight
In your luggngqV Alas, noer
nguin ihull your eyes behold Grund
isle. 1, tell you the storm Is upon
lis. It Is too lntc, too late." Tho
voice rose and then fell, and died
away In n moan.
It wiih too late. And, too late, they
realized it.
The gueats had risen from tho
table. Tho women clung together
m frightened groups. The wind
roared higher and louder than tho
angry surf, The rulu foil Id torrcntB.
The men laughed, tinenMly, but wltk
a show of braggadocio. The womca
must not be frightened, anyway.
Marie sat rigid, her hand In Andre's.
"Courage, courage, Mario,
lovol" ho whispered. "1 Knew, too,
tho storm would come. 1 miIiI It nit
day. Hut It will pnss nwnj. Don't
mind thu gibbering old fool, Manuel.
To-morrow It will bo mcr, the sun
will shine, tho birds will sing and I
Hhall eomo for you In tho evening nnd
wo will take tho lugger and cross
to Grand Isle. Wo will take Glode
nnd the wife, for only this evening
she said she was longing to visit tho
Fctrlcs." And so he cheered her, nnd
she smiled nnd comforted (llodc'a
wife, nnd smiled nnd cooed to the
frightened bubo lying In its mother's
arms.
Then a fenrful thing happened, for
a benm shot by the window, onWhlch
rode a humnn figure a stark,
figure. Gaspard, who hntllbccn
watching nt the window, Haw i and
Marin saw it too, nnd so did An Ire.
"Heavenly Mother," wailed tliclglrl,
an she sank to her knee. "Oh.lpity
us, pity ub, and protect us this dltnd
ful night."
Old Manuel hnd seen It too, re
vealed In a blinding Hash of lighting.
"Sec," he cried, with skeleton llibcr
pointing. "Tho sea Is all about jus.

"If we die, we die together," hh
whlHpe.rcd.
When the worst enme, It wns soonl

horrors afresh.
Morning dawned, clear und beautiful.
Tho sun, n fiery disk, sent long,
glinting lines nerosK the water, nnd the
Iridescence wiih a mockery of some
of the hideous objects floating on the
waves. A strange stillness hovered
over nil. Life seemed strangely, suddenly,
Interrupted. Only the
cry of a cat bird wns heard. No
sound of lowing cattle, no early matin
by the noisy swnllows.
See, there lie two bodien, side by
side, with faces upturned to tho sunlight.
Serene in their Inst sleep, tho
unhnppy and luckless lovers lie, enst
on the bench by the receding waves.
Old Manuel wnH right. "For It la
writ, these two shall not wed. Tonight
they shall die."
And there, In tho graveyard of

two side by side, with a single cross
above them.

GERMANY'S NATIONAL AIR.
It la Not "Die Wocht am nheln," ai
la Supposed by n Great Manx
People.
It is remarkable how very few people
in this country, even musicians,
know the national song of Germany.
There is a popular impression that
It Is "Die Wacht am Bheln." Such la
not the case, however, as was learned
latelj by Prof. MacLeod, leader of
the band of the District national
guard, who applied to the German
embassy for information on that
point, states the Washington Star.
Be thought it was the "Watch on tho
IUilne," but wasn't sure. Tho national
gunrd band took part In the
ceremonies attending the welcon e to
Prince Henry, and it was intended
that his royal highness should hear
the national song of the fatherland
on Hint occasion.
In response to his inquiry the bnnd
leader was informed by n representative
of the German ambassador that
the nationnl song of the Germnn empire
is "Hell dlr im Siegerkranz," the
music of which is precisely the same
ns thnt of "God Save tho Queen,"
the national song of Great Britain,
and "America," or "My Country, "Ns
of Thee," one of the patriotic songs
of the United States.
The same information is contained
in "Nntlonnl and Patriotic Airs of
All Nntions," a volume compiled by
John Philip Sousn when bandmaster
of, the United States Marine bnnd,
which compilation is accepted ns the
ofllcinl guide of the navy department,
and is followed in nll naval functions.
In nddition to the cases already mentioned,
it further appears from Prof.
Sousn's compilation thnt the well-known
music of "God Snv the
Queen" is also the national air of
Switzerland under the name "Bufst
du ineln Vnterland" and the national
song of Davnrln under the title "Hell
unserm Ivonig, Hell."
Prof. Sousa denominntos "The Star
Spangled Banner," "Hail Columbia"
ind "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," ns
patriotic songs of the United States,
and docs not attempt to name the national
song of this country. He
ihows, however, that the practice in
the navy is to play "The Star
Spangled Banner" nt morning colors
snd "Hnll Columbia" nt evening
on nll ships in commission nnd nt
naval stations where there nre
bands.

"How do you know?" asked the Indian

"Because Prince Henry is coming
over hero to present our leading
nnd officials with beautiful cigarette
cases ami sleeve buttons and
other vuluuble souvenirs."
"Listen, O white man," said the Indian,
earnestly; "listen to the voice
