CHAPTER I.
GREAT storm had
raged with una
bated fury for three
day, but now at
the shutting down
of twilight the
clouds were break
ing, and toward
the sunset there
gleamed a slns'.e
spark of blood-red
iiht low down
Upon the western mountains. The wind
had changed from the east, and the
bree that fanneJ the boyish brow of
Ralph Trenholme aa he paced back and
forth over the shingly shore, was Ilk?
the breath of early June. And it was
the list of October. T!ie sea was still
high, tossins in at intervals remnan'3
of the ill-starred ship that had gone to
pieces on Joliet Rock. Just outside the
harbor mouth of Portloa.
How anxious had been the hearts on
shore for that wretched ship! How
earnestly they had watched it since
early dawn, when it ha 1 appeared in the
oang driven about helpless, at the
mercy of the winds and waters, aud at
last dashed upon the cruel rooks. They
had devised alr.ly among themselves,
those hardy fishermen, ways and means
to save the vessel from her fate. The
proui mistress of Trenholme House
better known as High Hock h i I come
out into the storm, s pal" and anxious
at the rudest fisherman's wife among
them come out to bes; them to do all
that human arm could do; to offer them
goll if they could save bit one poor
life; and those brave, courageous men
had looked at her, and at each other,
sorrowfully and in silence; they knew
by stern experience that no boat could
live an hour in a sea like that. And so
the ship was left to go down unaided.
H it Ralph Tronh.ilme ,ou'.d not !
quiet. With th daring Impulsiveness
of a boy of fourteen, h" had thric
launched the Sen Foam, his own little
!hjat. to go to the aid of the sufferers,
but as many times had the men of the
co:ist f.ireed him back. They would
no: s.ani by and se? him go to death
for nought. Ralph fought against
them bravely, but was ohlige.l to yield,
an I restless, an i ch.!i:u at his Inac
tivity, which pee me l to him almost
cowardly, he paced the shore, aud
looked out to sea.
There came a great wave. He watched
it rising afar off. and sa that it bore
.upon its crest something whiter than
icven the foam. He darted down to the
,water line, and stood there when it
came so near that it drenched hiiii
jthrotigh. but he caught the precious
freight it bore In his arms, and by the
wan light he looked Into the face of a
little child a girl perhaps six or seven
years old. with pure features, milled
Into calm repose, and lone, curling locks
of pjld. floating dripping down, and
tingled with seaweed. She was dreaded
in white, and around her waist was a
s.'arf of blue tissue, but the other end
wai lost, torn away, probably, from the
support to which the had been bound
by home one who had cared to save her.
Ralph gathered her up with something
like triumph swelling his heart. If
she were only alive he might have the
satisfaction of knowing that he had
saved a life, for if she had been dashed
in upon the shore, the sharp rocks
would have crushed out from that beau
tiful face every semblance of humanity.
He puts his lips down to hers. There
was a faint warmth. He ran up the
s'eep path leading to High Rock, bear
ing his treasure in his arms, and in to
his mother, who was sitting before the
great fire that streamed redly up the
chimney.

anl said sh could not remember. All
knowledge of the past was blotted out.
It wn as if It hal never been. She
had forgotten her own nam". She did
nor even remember that she had been
on shipboard, and when they asked her
about her parent?, sh looked at them
in s'Kh a daz"d sort of a way that Mrs.
Tre.ihoime saw at onre it was useless
to press the matter. The severe shock
Iit nervous system had received from
remaining so long in the water had
brought total oblivion of the past.
; Her clothing was An and costly, but
there were no trinkets by hich any
clue to her parentage could b obtained.
The only thing that might serve to
l lentlfy her wan a minute scarlet cross,
Jut below the Hhoulder. on her arm -a
mark that had evidently been pricked
into her skin with some Indelible sub
stance. After a few weefci the wonder and
furiosity which this sole survivor of
the wreck had excited died away, and
Mrs. Trenholme, yielding to the earn
est solicitations of Ralph, decided to
adopt her, and rear her as her own.
The chil i was christened Marina, which
mean from the sea. and turned over to
the care of Kate I.nn. the nurse, who
still hid the chars of Agns, Mrs.
Treaholme's little six years' old i"'.i

woull seldom see a beauty so faultless
as hers. Every day developed some
new iharrn. Her golden hair grew
more golden, her eyes bluer and deeper,
and her smile rarer and sweeter. Oc
casionally, she would break out Into
snatched of song old melodies
stranse to all who listeued. something
she must have learned in other lands,
aud beneath sunnier skies.
The waif had found a good home, all
the neighborhood said. So she had.
High Rock was the manor house of the
vicinity, the Trenholmes the wealthiest
old family In that part of the state.
The lands belonging to the estate were
wide and fertile, the old house was a
romance in itself, albeit a most stately
one. It was built far out on a great
peak, closely overhanging the sea a
masshe structure of gray stone, with
towers aud gable windows, and wide
piazzas.
Mr. Trenholme had held many offices
of public trust, and as a man and a
J scholar had stood very high. He had
j died suddenly, two years before the
I opening of our story. Mrs. Trenholme
i had truly and teuderly loved her hus-
band, and natures like hers never for-
get. Her best consolation she found in
the affection she bore her children; and
Ralph and Ajtnes were worthy of all
the love she gave them. With very
little of their mother's haughty pride,
they had inherited all her beauty and
gentleness, while to Ralph, along with
his father's flne'lntelWt, had descended
his earnest heart, his strong affections,
and his almost chivalrous sense of hon
or. Ralph was eight years older than
Agnes. At fourteen he was a tall, hand
some boy, with a dark, clear com
plexion, brown eyes, and curling chest
nut hair. Agnes was of the less intense
type, with delicately cut features, dark
hazel cjes. a pale complexion, and a
flush of scarlet on her sweet lips.
These were the children with whom
little Marina was thrown. They grew
j tip together. The girls loved each other
j like sisters; indeed, there was 1 i 1 1 1
j chance for thtm to know the difference,
j The children had but few playmate.
The neighborhood was not very select.
I and Mrs.TrenhoL-je was very particular.
I Lynde ilraham, tfce only child of a poor
I fisherman that dwelt at the foot of the
I Rock, was with them most frequently,
j Th proudest mother in the land would
j have no objection to Lynde (Jrahani as
a playmate ior nor cuu iren. lie was
about Ralph's age, a darling, nob'.e
souled boy.
And sometimes from Ireton T,odge
the stately residence of Judge Ireton
came Imoger.e. his daughter, to pay
little visits to the Trenholmes. Some
day Imogene Ireton would make hearts
ache; some day she would be absolutely
magnificent in her beauty. Even now
she was queenly. Her complexion was
lik" the creamy petals of a lily; her
hair and eyes wra black as night, and
vt times her checks flashed like car
nations, and hnr voice rang out like
the music of silver bells. Her whole
bearing was like that of one who knows
she was born for conquest. She was
haughty, arrogant and selfish.
At sixteen. Ralph Trenholme left
home for college. He remained there
four years, returning home only for a
week or two at vacation time, and then
not always seeing Marina and Agnes,
who were at a boarding school for
young misses. After his graduation, he
made the Huropean tour, nnd four years
elapsed before, bronzed and bearded, lie
again set foot upon his native land.
Meanwhile, Lynde (Jraham had
fought a hard battle and come off
conqueror. Men with eyes like his
seldom fail to accomplish what they
undertake with their whole souls. He
had fitted himself for college, taught
to gain the money requisite to defray
his expenses, and just as Ralph arrived
home, Lynde Graham had come back
to the fisher's cottage, with the diploma
from Harvard in his pocket. He had
graduated with the very highest hon
ors, and at once began studying medi
cine with Dr. Hudson, of Port'.ea.
CHATTER II.
ELL, my son. what
do you think of
your gift from the
sea?" said Mrs.
Trenholme, one day,
a few weeks after
her son's return.
He was lying on
a lounge drawn up
before a southern
wdndow, where th
late October sun
pou rod In its gold, his head ly
ing in her lip. her white lingers
hidden among his chestnut curls. lie
looked up into her eyes, took her hand,
and pressed it slowly to his lips.
"I think, dear mother, that she is the
most beautiful being I ever saw. I
have seen the brunettes of Italy, tho
fair-faced women of Clrcassia. the
languid Spaniards, with their eyes of
fire, .and the oriental seraphs of the
Turk's harem, but none like Marina."
Something like a aha low fell over
the face of Mrs. Trenholme. He felt
the change In h?r voice, slight though
It wis.
"Yes," she sal 1, "Marina Is beautiful.
It were a pity that she has no family
no name, even, save what we have
given her. Her parentage must ever, I
suppose, remain a secret. Indeel. my
son, I blush pometlmes to think of it.
but perhaps she was the offspring of
shame, and thus abandoned. Von will
remember, perhaps, that no female
bodies were ever washed up from the
wreck of the vessel. And It is not cus
tomary for children like her to be put
on shipboard without a woman's care."
An angry flush rose to Ralph's cheek.
He sprang up quickly.
"Never, mother! you wrong her! I
would stake my life that Marina 't
nobly born. We may never, In oil
probability we never shall, know the
secret of her birth, but if we do, mark
me. we shall 0 nd her fully our equal!"
Mm. Trenholme smiled at his earnest
ness, as she replied:
j
"To chinje the coaertlon. tm
t.ene Ireton Is comlnj here tomorrow.
for a visit of indefinite length. I think
IaiJn will surprise you. You nave
not seen her since you left home, I
think?'
"I have not. but I have no doubt she
has developed wonderfully. Imogene
was always magnificent!"
"And now she has no peer. I have
never seen one w ho would compare with
her. Rut tomorrow you shall judge for
yourself."
The conversation closed, and Ralph
thought no more of It. until Imogene
Iretoa burst upon him. He was amazed.
He had expected to see a very beautiful
woman, but. instead, he touched the
hand of a princess. Three years older
than Marina, at nineteen she was fully
developed, with a form that would have
driven a sculptor mad with ambition
to rival it. She was rather tall, with
that graceful, high-bred ease of man
ner that came to her so naturally, and
the voice that in her young girlhood had
been so sweet, was now a breath of
musical intoxication. Her complexion
was still rarely clear, the cheeks a little
flashed, the mouth a line of scarlet, the
hair dark and lustrously splendid, and
the eves! such eyes are never seen
twl-e In the world a"t the same time.
Ralpa gazed into their depths, with a
strange feeling of bewilderment. Sho
fascinated him powerfully, and yet he
felt a sort of coldness creeping round
his heart an almost Incipient shudder
shook him. as her soft hand fell like a
snow flake info his.
In the daily intercourse which fol
lowed, the feeling somew hat wore away,
and though Miss Ireton. at the end of
a fortnight, had not succeeded la cap
turing the heir of Trenholme. it must
be admitted that she had interested
him. Toward Lynde Graham, who was
at th Rock almost daily, she was cold
and reserved; she never forgot the dis
tance between Judge Ireton's heiress
and the son of a poor fisherman. And
yet. despite her coldness, which at
times was almost scorn, before she re
turned home Lynde Graham had
learned to love her. He kept his un
fortunate secret to himself; he felt that
it would cause him nothing but pain
and sorrow, should It escape him by
word or deed.
The winter passed qtiietly. There was
an occasional pleasure party, but they
were by no means frequent, and it was
not until summer came that the real
round of pleasuring, which was des
tined to break the calm of the Rock for
the season, began.

THE WATCH ADJUSTER.
He I a IMaii WliiKit llrliewtn Work Re
i'ilrr I re l.xperiem mul Much Kklll.
lVrhaps the most highly skilled and
best paid men in the watchmaking
ousinrss are the watch adjusters. One
adjuster in a great factory used to re
ceive $10,0(1(1 a jear. The adjuster's
work is one of the important elements
of cost in the making of a fine watch,
and a 51 , o adjuster should be com
petent to perfect any watch, whatever
its delicacy and cost. It is the business
of the adjuster to take a new watch and
carefully go over all its parts, fitting
them together so that the watch may
be regulated to keep time accurately to
the fraction of a minute n. month. Reg
ulating is a very different process from
adjusting and much simpler. A watch
that cannot be regulated so as to keep
accurate time may need the hand of the
adjuster. and if it Is valuable
the owner will be advised to
have It adjusted. There are
watch adjusters in New York working
on their own account and earning very
comfortable incomes. To the adjuster
every watch that comes under his
hands gets to have a character of its
own. He knows every wheel and screw
and spindle that help to constitute the
watch. He knows Its constitution as
a physician knows that of an old pa
tient. He can say what tho watch needs
after an accident, and can advise as to
whether it Is worth adjusting. No new
watch can be depended upon until It
has passed through the hands of the
adjuster, for however admirable the In
dividual parts of th9 works, their per
fect balance Is to be obtained only by
such study and experiment as It Is the
business of the adjuster to niakj. The
adjuster Is a highly-skilled mechanic,
with wide knowledge of his business,
and the utmost deftness in Its prosecu
tion. Something New In llotMiijr.
Pro. G. Macloskle of Princeton re
ported to the botanists of the American
association a singular discovery about
the flowering plants. He finds that all
suedes Include two kinds or castes of
Individuals, born of the same mother
plant, but differing by being slightly
twisted in opposite directions, the seed,
shoot, stem, leaves, lnflorercence, and
bowers being turned dexterally In some
plants, and sinlstrally In others from
the same pod. This peculiarity Is of
a primitive nature, and is often ob
scured by secondary twining of stems,
spreading out of leaves to the light, and
twlstins of flowers. Hut If you go Into
an orchard you will find half of the
trees and of the weeds with their leaves
forming left-handed spirals, and as
many producing right-handed spirals.
This curious habit of growth appears
to depend on the place of origin of needs
In the seed vessel. One column of grains
In an ear of Indian corn will produce
plants turning one way, and those
borne by the next column will turn
the opposite way; a bean pod has dex
tral seeds on Its right valve, and sinis
tral on Its left valve, or conversely.
Plants propagated by cuttings or bulbs
all twist the same w ay; not so, however,
the Iris, calla lily, and a few others,
which grow by the branching of root
stocks. The term antidromy is used to
Indicate the habit of twisting in differ
ent directions. This discovery is fertile
In suggesting new lines of Inquiry, ex
plains the real nature of phyllotaxy,
and removes many difficulties from
botany. It may explain why some tele
graph poles split with a dextral and
others of the same species with a sinis
tral curve, a phenomenon which some
tried to explain by wind pressure on
the growing trees. It also raises new
questions as to the formation of the
embryos differently on two Eides of a
leaf.

From the Washington Post: It was
In statuary hall one day of last week.
She was a pretty girl of perhaps IS.
with a certain unmistakable air of be

and not at all embarrassed. He was a
portly gentleman, with a neck that
wrinkled under his collar at the back
and a head that left timber line half
way up. She walked about gazing In
terestedly at this and that. She hadn't
the slightest need of a guide, but he
marched up to her and offered bis ser

fectly killing smile. She let him make
his little speeches nnd smile his little

"You'll pardon my speaking to you

"Oh, yes, of course," she Interrupted,

A smart gown is made up of black
broadcloth, with a very smooth surface.
Alas for It. when 6pots of rain fall,
every one will show as plain as day.
Droadcloth ought always to be sponged
before being made up, although It does
remove some of the gloss. This black
gown has a widely flaring skirt, cut en
Paquln. with not a vestige of trimming
to bo seen upon it. It has a stiff lining
of soft, violet-colored taffeta, finished
with a lot of dust ruffles at the bottom.
The coat Is smartly fashioned in tho
favorite short-waisted mode, so becom

show a lining of the violet silk. There
Is no center back seam, and the two

The elashed yoke has an under piece of

black sets up about the face.
