The Ear had deeply mourned the loss or" his wile, Anm-tlH's mother, and all er the lapse of two years of mourn ing ins Health liad become so im paired that he was urged by his physicians to seek a change of climate.

At the age of fifteen, under the wise and carelul management of a most excellent falher, Annette was nearins the couiDletion of a finished education, which, with her natural charms, rendered her at tractive to every one. Indeed, she was tlie belle and the favorite of her lather's regiment. But An nelte was modest and lovely, as wrji ns uuiiuuiiu in person, ana en- joyeu me society ot the young men, wno were conslantly around more as the child than the woman, for she had always associated with them in lieu ol female companions. One morning as she was at break fast wilh her father, sipping her chocolate, her father was called out unexpectedly to receive a visitor, and immediately returning brought with him a young gentleman, whom lie introduced to Annette as lid win lorrester, the son of an old and much loved friend. Annette soon found him a very acreeable addition to her coterie of admirers. lhe two young people spent many i"8i Where Kight-biids thoir fweetplaintive delightlul hours together sketching in me woods or climbing the lull sides, or in the evening Edwin's love songs renew.

In the serrated moanlains of Spain there is situated a convent Many years and many battling winds have swept over the wild, tangled lorest that stretches away in the rear of the convent. Time hast cast a picturesque shade over the walls and bultresnes of this se eluded retreat. I have often thought it be very delightful to live a life as tranquil ami pure as that of the white capped sisters seems to be. The sun had sunk by the western wing, lhe mantling ivy and odO' rous jasmine were almost undefiu ed in the darkness, bat their per fume was wafted on the cool night wind, as the birds stirred them in their homeward fight.' Many a mother-bird had made her nest on lhe jutting angle of the root that lost itself in the surrounding ver dure. The softly pealing bell had rung the evening chine that died away among the cadence-repealing peaks and beetling crags. i Thegates of the converge areopen, tcnei g liis while a muffing MOSS rOINT ...MISS Job Vri ntingat this Office.

On reaching the farthest side of the convent she attempts to cross a little branch that flows smoothly along under the walla into the spa cious courtyard. A step rattles a pebble into the bed ot the brook and a tall, handsome young man joins her.

The Earl saw the intimacy which had grown up between the two young people, and looked on with quiet satisfaction, for Edwin was the son of a true and tried friend, and he perceived in him a mental calibre, which promised a brilliant future. Summer and autumn passed. and Jdwin s vacation was nearly over. Appearing at the usual hour one morning, Edwin apprised Annette ol the tact. "I thought you were to remain i India a year," she remarked a length. "Have you tired so soon oris ir your lather s wish that you should return F '1 did expect to slav out here a twelvemonths," he returns, "but my ambitious lather is anxious for me to resume mv law studies at Oxford without delay, and it is with feelings of sadness that I leave a spot that contains so many at tractions lor me." Annette changes the topic of conversation and their gayety of spirits return, and for the time sep aration Is lorgollen A week more and Edwin takes his final leave, though not before he obtains permission to correspond with Annette. History records the terrible en gagement between the English and natives during this year. In this encounter between them an arrow whizzing and stinging its way midair from an unerring hand laid low as brave a soldier as ever fought under the English flag. Annette 1 eine awoke from child hood when she knelt by her father's lifeless corpse and prayed for one more glance from that loving eye, but in vain. The foe had robbed her of him she loved eo well, and (he sad duty now devolved upon her of carrying her father's remains back to England to be laid away in the ancestral vault. The imposing obsequies are over and the household is summoned to the reading of the late Earl's will. In a clear, decisive voice the grave lawyer read the document which bequeathed all of the im mense wealth which the Earl pos sessed, to bis only child, stipulating only that she should retain all the old domestics who served so faith fully. Alter the lawyer had finished the reading a distant cousin ot An nette s, of whom her falher had of ten spoken in a very derogatory manner, arose from a seclsded portion of the room where he bad been almost unobserved, aud cross ing over laid a sealed envelope in her lap. Annette's heart leaped at the sight of the familiar handwriting. It was hei father's. After the assembled household had retired she hurried to her room and opened the letter. , It was signed later than the will and had evidently been written by her father, but how preposteroua and UDlike him. Urging her to deliver her wealth, which was an She immediately recollected her father to have advised her in case of trouble to seek for a short sea son rest from care In some convent if she were ever inclined to do so. But she felt that this letter was not genuine. A feeling that danger menaced her crept over, and she resolved npou a course of action. Inclosing ine leuer ana one hastily written by herself, she addressed them in a common envelope to Edwin For rester, whom 6he felt to be her nearest friend in hei trouble. Being well acquainted with the abbess of the convent of N , she decided to seek protection un der her sheltering wings for a short season. "Rest assured, Annette, that the villain will never molest you again. I have silenced him. Your suspi cions are correct, and 1 have found Ihatlhe letter he forired in vour father's name was not the first act of the same description. Were it not lor the gray hairs of his lather he would long since been servins a life-term in prison. Let me have the right to protect and shield you in the future? Will vou consent to be my wife?" Not trusting herself to lift her eyes Annette attempted to with draw the hand which Edwin in his ardor had clasped. Sorrow had tried her, and under this new emo tion her heart failed and she burst into au uncontrollable fit of weep, ins. 'Shall I not! hope?" at lenKlh asks Edwin. A smile uradtiallv brightens the loyely face and hereyes beam with a lender light as she dries her tears. "Allow me a lew short inonlhs of seclusion, Edwin, and then 1 will accept your devotion," she pleads. bix months later the great clock in the church tower, in the town of Alsace, strikes with its wondrous tor.eM (he hour of midday. A bridal parly enters the door and in a few moments Edwin Forrester and An nette I'eine are man and wife. A landsomer couple was never seen and they bring with them the dear est and rarest promises for future happiness. The sweet abbess is here and the faithful friends that she made in lhe convent gather around and congratulate Edwin on gaining so lovely a unde as An nette Peine. Cbabsand Thunder. Solt-shel crabs are frequently served up as free lunch in the third rate New York saloons, and it took the Sun to nnd out that it was simply by reason of the frequency ol thunder storms that lhe saloon-keepers could anord to do it. lo those un acquainted with the extreme ner vous susceptibility of the crab. cause and ellect may seem widely separated in that proposition, but it is perfectly correct all the same. Let a Shrewsbury crab-grower put aboard a train for New York 500 dozen of his largest, finest, fattest crabs, all alive and wriggling, nice ly packed in cool, wet eel crass. then let one sharp crack of thun der rollover the train, and by the time its echoes have ceased every crab in the lot will be as dead as any Pharoali mummified 2,000 years ago. n hy does thunder kill them ? Nobody knows any more about the reason than that it seems to be a fatal shock to their sensi tive minds. But the fact is that it does so, which is lhe main thing. hese crabs if delivered in New York alive would have been worth 75 cents or perhaps tl a dozen, and even if not very big ones would ave readily commanded 40 to 60 cents. But when they arrive dead he dealer lo whom they are con signed makes all possible hast to get rid of them as quickly as possi ble for any price be can get, for he no ws I hat in three or four houis hose remaining on his hands will be not onlv a total loss, but a nuis- sance that it will cost him some thing to get rid or. lhe peddlers and free lunch caterers, who keep sharp lookout for such business opportunities, are quicklr on hand o buy up the spoiled crabs. If the thunder caught the timid creatures about the lime that the train was getting into Jersey City, so that they are tolerably fresh, as much as three cents apiece may be got for the first lots, but the price quickly falls to two cents, one cent, and even lower.

Sc-RAJtTos, Miss., July 80, 1888. . Editor Democrat-Star: " A wise man once said that a wise man talked because he had some thing lo say, and a crank talked because he tcanted to say 'some thing. Whether the assertion. of lhe aforesaid wise man is correct, may be inferred from a perusal of the communication lo the Demo crat Star of to-day, over the sig nature ot 'Crank O. Cranky,'? If your correspondent had been a wise man he would have known that thero is no record extant that furnishes the genealogy of Noah, and consequently no means by which to determine at what "point in the generations or age of tbe world Old father Noah'' first saw the light, or the name of the gen tleman immedialely responsible for his advent into this world. The name of Noah's father being an important factor in the determina tion of the answer required by "Crank O. Cranky;" and as there 18 no reliable record of that genl Io nian's name, his question is one of thosH impossible problems that leads one to believe that the nrob- lem and the propounder are both of the same ilk. The 4ih chapter of Genesis be- begins the genealogy of Lamech, the father of Noah, with Cain, and the 5th cnapter declares Seth to bo the forefather of Lamech; and from the same chapter we learn that Cain, was the first fruit of the wedded life of Adam and Eve. and that Seth was the third; therefore, it follows that it must first be de termined wiiether Cain wasNoahV forefather, or whether his younger brother Seth was entitled to that honor, before a solution of "Crank O. Cranky V problem can be ar rh'ed Ht. If '-Crank O. Cranky" will read Genesis, 7lli chapter, 21st to 24th verses inclusive, and the 10th chap ter of the same book, and he does not admit that he has asked too much. I will have become convinc ed th.it he is not a "make believe," but a "shorenuff" crank." According to Genesis, 7th chap ter, 21st verse, all lile, every ani mal breathing (he breath of life was destroyed by the flood, but the 10th chapter of Genesis declares that the isles of the Gentiles were divided in their lands by the sons of Noah, after the flood, "every one after hi tongue, after their families, in their nations." Now, the 21st verse, of th 7th' chapter asserts that all living' things were destroyed by the flood, and tbe 10th chapter asserts that the lands of the Gentiles were di-" vided by I ho sons of Noah after the flood, and that their lands were di-. vided according to their families. and nations; thus implying that the Gentiles were not destroyed bv lhe flood, and leavinglhe question open ns to whether "Crank O. Cranky" descended from Cain or Seth; or from the Gentiles who were not destroyed by tbe flood, or whether he descended from the" race of people among whomCaiiv. found his wife, and whom he must have employed to build the citv in the land of Nod, on the east ot Eden, for it is not supposed that., one man could build a city without , help ; and if he could, what could ' he want with a city I or how could he occupy it f So you see, Mr. "Crank (). Cranky," your pedigree is in doubt, and your question can-' not be answered this side of the vail.-. Scrutisy. Edison has invented anew din-, tier olork which talks. Instead of , striking the hour it speaks it. At dinner a voice issues from the clock and says : "Dinner time," also "1 , o'clock," and ''2 o'clock," etc., as . the case may be. Another device which he is perfecting in connec tion with the clock is that of a fe male face.-which he purposes lo set f in the face of the clock, l'be lips ot this figure will move at the hour, the head will bow, and the ficti- , tious lady will say : 'Good eve ning, ladies and gentlemen."
