Milly Broughton was tho only daughtcr of n Welsh colllor In a small vlllage ln Olamorgnnshlro. Tho glrl wns known by young and old ln tho colliory dlstrlct as "Our Mllly" nnd "Otir Lnssle," nnd sho wns lookcd upon nlmost as tho property of tho va rlous plts. That sho had niany eultora was not to bo wondered at, but only two out of thcm all rcceived any cncouragcmont from her. One was tho local pronchor, tho othor was tho young man who playcd tho harmonlum at tho chnpol, and who was lookcd upon na n muslcal gcnltts ln tho dlstrlct. It was Mllly's 18th birthday, nnd it happened to bo n Monday a day on which most colllors do not work. Mllly had rccelvcd mimcrous llttlo prescnts from her varlous admlrers, which sho lind strewn on tho kitchcn tablo, beforo which she sat contemplating thoin with a beanilng faco. A man was coming toward the cot tage lt wns tho mlncr preacher. Milly recelvcd him with slgns of pleasure. Sho showed him tho varlous artlcles on tho table, oxpatiating on tho kinilness.of thoao from whom sho had recelvcd them. "I, too, have a present for you, Mll ly," the young man sald prcsently, as ho took out of hls pockct a little mo rocco case, and out of lt a riug. Ho took Mllly's hand and placed tho ring upon her ongagement flnger. "You and 1 havo loved cach othor a long tlme now, Mllly," he continued. "I shouhl have aslted you to allow me to do thls before, but lt was only thls mornlng I heard that I was to bo mado nn ovcrseer. So now we shall bo able to keep house." Milly trled to stop him more than once, but he pald no attentlon to her. "Morgan," she sald at last, "you are a good fellow, and I llke you, and am glad to hear you have got the rise at the plt. I hope we shall always be friends; but I cannot marry you Da vld is to be my husband that was set tled last nlght between him and my father." For a whole month Morgan kept away from the plt, ln consequence of which ho lost hls preferment. One day, a few hours after the plts had commenced work, Morgan camo to Milly looking very pale. "Do not bo frlghtened," he sald, "but Davld haa met with an accident a sllght accident. He had been exploring a used-up plt where he thought there was a seam of coal that could be got at. Ho had uncovered a lot of stulf and found the seam. He took me down thls mornlng to see lt. "Whlle stripping some of the surplus a lump of coal fell across hls leg. He has lost a little blood, and ls restlng. He thought if you would bring down a bandage or two we mlght set him right between us. You seo he does not want any one to know ot hls dlscovery just yet, so you must not hlnt to any one of it." Mllly went with Morgan lmmedlate ly. Ile led her to the plt, which was in a very out of the way place. Mllly entered. Morgan lmmediately followed and closed a door behind him a door rudely made, but strong. Then he told Milly that Davld was not hurt at all, and that he had brought her to thls place ln order to tell her that he could not llve wlthout her, and that he mlght mako her promlse to marry him. He trled porsuasion and threats in vain, and at last left her, telling her that he would call each day with food and for hcr reply. He went back to his work ln the plt at once, making exctises for hls ab sencc. Ho had hardly commenced to ply hls pick when a tremendous oxplo slon took place. All the outlets from the mlne wero completely blocked. Morgan found himself in the dark, ly lng prostrate on his back, with a quan tity of coal upon him. Each hour seemed as though it wore a day. What would she do for food? Agaln and again ho shrleked, his mlnd overcome with horror. At last a voice answered hls cries. It was the voice of Davld. It dld not take him long to removo some of the fallen coal and cxtrlcate Morgan. And then for five dreary days they romained prlsoners in the darkness. At laat tho time camo when Morgan was so faint that he could hardly move. David's strength, meanwhlle, had kept up wonderfully, and he dld all he could to cheer Morgan. The latter, who used to pray and preach so much, had now not one prayer to offer. Davld could not comprehond this. "Why don't you pray, Morgan?" he askcd. "I can't," came falntly from Morgan's dying lips. "Is there anythlng on your mlnd?" "There is Mllly." In spasmodlc tones, with long pauses, conslnntly lnterrupted by exclamatlons of horror from Davld, Morgan told how he hnd invclgled Milly into tho old plt and had imprlsoncd her so that sho could not posslbly escapo, and left her only food enough for one day. It was a terrlble story to hear in that dark vault, without a gleam of llght or a clear hope of eseape. Tho story was hardly flnished when, with a sliout as savngo as that of a wlld beast doprlved of its mate, Davld sprang up and selzed tho dylng man. He llfted him ln hls arms with the intention of dashlng him down again. Suddonly 11 gleam ot llght appeared ln a far cornor. Mllly herself entered the cave. Davld becanie powerleas and dropped Morgan at his feet. Mllly had not been long ln her prlson when she oscnped. Sho had heard of the oxplosion, and slnce then, by day and by nlght, for inany hours at a tlmo, hIio had travolcd through nll tho old uiliips, searchlng for n pnssngo to tho exploded 0110. Sho was just ln tlmo to Havo iior lover from tho crimo of mur der. Morgan, howover, dld not llve mnny houiT longer DeWitt's Witch llnzel Snlve Cures I'ites, Scalds, lliirns. Monarch "ANDES" Range.
