But they did not tell me that, Had they done eo I coulOhavo told them better; but they did not. They went out softly to the other room, shutting the door, lest I bhould hear them whisper it to Minnie my niece Minnie who takes caro of mo, and ho cried, tes. absolutely cried, when they had gono away. They shut the door, I say, but ah, I laughed at that! little do these doctors know how keen grows the eye, how sharp the ear, how eager the dull mind and clear the brain, us cno draws near the shore and feels the bnegzo from off the lake of Death fanning tho sunken cheek s. Some times, while lying hero, I hare heard tho neighbors in the room beyond talking about my chances in the Initio with the "shadow grim," and wond jring and plan ning what had best bo dono after all was over with me; and I hare been tempted to call out that I heard them, and tell them to bo gono, bat then, why should It They are good neighbors, as neighbors go, and they have been very kind to Minnie; so I let them alone, nor did I speak to them at all, oulv it used to worry me a little but that is over now. But so I heard the doctors, as they told Minnie this morning; and afterward, when she camo into my room, I pretended not to seo the pretty eyes all red and neighed with tears, or hoar the tremor in the sweet, young voice. I merely asked for pen and paper, and to bo alone a while. She brought mo these, drew up tho littlo table within reach, and went out. I was left alono yet not alone, for the spirit of tho dead woman is hero beside me now. givinr mo feverish strength to write tho words that may at last bring peace to her soul and mine. I am an old man now, yet, how clear it Eccms before my eyes clearer than this ny eye s tenia memory or yesterday that bright, arm- bhinv inoruhi" lontr- soars arro. when I joined hands and fortune with three other men (all now are dead but me, and I am d ing). But then, ah then, wo were so young and brave and strong and full of boyish dreams of wealth and lovo, and manhood's happiness! We were out locating mining claims among tho Rocky mountains, and for two wild weeks wo workod on sido by side, scanning anxiously the sands that ran beneath our feet for signs of the gleam ing yellow dust. But, so far, all in ram One day it came my turn to hunt the gamo for camp, and in the clear, bright morning I started off, whistling light ballad snatches as I went; for, ah, how could I see, with my duller eyes, the "wee, small cloud" then gathering in the west! The gamo was hard to track, and fed mo farther and farther up hills and down glens, so that when l turned mv faco to ward camp tho night was falling around mo, and with it camo the conviction that I had lost my way. But what of that? I was jounjr and fearless, and a nirfit spent in that far canyon, with the white stars for my candles and the wind sough ing through tho dark rock pines abovo me. would bo filled with pleasant dreams, not idle fears. So I stood still, and look ing about mo for tho safest spot on which to bet -stakes, I saw just a little be foro me, la tho glen below, a small clearing, and beyond a clump of trees. I made up my mind to go to thi? clearing, and had just started, when suddenly a shrill, piercing scream rang out on the qniet air, seeming to como from tho shadow of the trees beyond, and echo ing down the long ravine, like tho cry of a lost souL Again it came, as I stood there, for at first I hesitated at going to ward it, fearing a panther trap. Then once again it rose, shivering throughthe darkness, "Oh, help, help, for the pity of God!" Then I knew what it meant. No pan ther cries liko that. Swinging myself down from ledge to ledge, X was soon on tho littlo clearing, then on into the gloom of tho pine trco cluster, led by tho cries that had now bonk into pitiful sobs and moans. Just beyond tho edge of the woods, through tho trees, I saw a ray of light, id tracking it, soon came up to a miser able old shanty a miner's hut. Within this snanty were the sobs, as of a young girl; and every sob was accompanied by a curse and tho dull swish of somo heavy ian as it now through the air and fell upon tho quiverish flesh! One moment I paused, tho next I had burst open the miserable door, and stood gazing on a picture that has haunted me through all my life. Hero, in the, low, unfinished room, lit Dy an old lantern that Iranc sus pended from a beam across tho center of t roof, stood an old gray haired, gray Dearacu man. aian, aid l sayT A ay, rather devil, fiend in flesh and blood! There he stood with a long cattlo whip uplifted for another blow, and at his feet lay a young girl, scarcely moro than a child, with her long, black hair all tan gled about her faco and matted with blood upon her breast. Blood was upon her face", her dress, her feet and on the floor. Ah, what a sight it was! One glance, and I had caught the old fiend by tho throat, and flung hha sense less on tho floor beyond. Then I took tho poor little lassie in my arms, brushed back the matted curls from her white face, and gavo her whisky from my hunting flask. She soon revived and stood up before mo. Drawing tho tattered frock acro!S her bruised and bleeding breast, sho looked at me with a sort oi dazed, childish wonder, but with no sign of fear. Ah,I canseehernow, jnstas she stood there, tall and lithe and graceful aa thojoungCr trees growing by the door, with her long black hair, black as a dream of darkness, and her eyes, eyes with the changing mystery of the night, the pas sion of tho storm winds in their depths. "Who is het" I asked her, pointingto the man who lay there, stirring faintly. "He? Oh, ho says ho is my father, but ho lies, he always lies!" came tho answer in hot, passionate sobs, while her dark oyes glowed with the memory of hate and pain. "And you?" I asked. "Me? Oh, I am Carina, and I have al ways lived here, only to be beaten and beaten by that man ho will kill mo Bome timo. I oppose!" sho said in a dreary littlo voice, where pitiful despair seemed giving way before the hope of death. I stayed there all that night. About daybreak the old man pulled himself to gether, looked at us for a moment, and, muttering curses, turned and went off down among the trees. But when I too would have left the poor child clung to me, and begged and prayed that I should not leave her there alone. '"Hois only hiding down there till he eees you go; then he will come back and kill me!" she whispered, trembling and fearful at the thought. So I stayed, won by the glorious beauty of thobe eyes. And that day, and the next, and yet the next went by and found me there, con tent. Carma soon forgot her terror, and laughed in happy glee as she sat beside me under the stilly trees. And I forgot snv cmnr&daa ux tiut lone ravino and all my gold dreams faded froni my wind; for ah. I loved the wildwood flower I had found beneath the pines, and she oh; the memory of her love for me! She told me of herself In those sweet days, how she had always lived therewith that fiend, seeing no other face but his, hearing no sound but tho shrill cry of tho panther through tho dark. Sho wore a little locket In her breast, with tho fnra of a woman in it a face beautiful as tho angels, witli c es liko Carina's own. Her father, sho said, had told her onco it was tho faco of her mother, who had died at Carina's birth. "And theu.ho struck mo. and went off. and stayed for many days," she said, shivering with tho memory of his brutal blows. I comforted her as best I could, and lingered on. One morning, our stock of venison get ting low, I started off again in search of game. Carma stood In tho doorway and watched me out of sight. I had good luck that day, and went hurrying homo ward in tho twilight, listening to catch tho first notes of greeting song, but all was still too still. I thought. Then, suddenly, there was one long, wild scream, one such as called me to her side before, and I knew that tho fiend had come back. Rushing madly forward, I reached tho door in time to seo tho villain seize my darling by tho throat and plunge a long dirk knlfo into her breast; to see her totter, fall heavily, and then then my senses left me. and I knew nothing of what I was doing for somo time hen 1 recovered I was kneelimr before the dead body of the girl I loved, while close to us lay her murderer, with tho long knlfo in his blackened heart for I, too, loro tho mark of Cain. " Somehow I knew not how I staggered to my feet, and seizing my gun, went out, leaving tho dead together in tho accursed hut. The next few weeks are a blank to me, but my old friend, Tottcn, told mo that one day I was found by somo hunters moro dead than alive, in a glen, far off from tho bloody scene. They said I had lost my way, and had fainted from starva tion, whoro they found mo. I novor told them otherwise. Throo years after that I was in San Francisco, living with a friend, a great criminal lawyer there, lie told mo of many things and In his conversation spoko of a caso ho had tried two years before of a young girl accused of murdering her lamer, i ucn mo uuo camo out. My darling was not dead, as I supposed, when I left her, but rather in that awful swoon which is twin sister to death. A party of miners, passing down the canyon somo days after tho tragedy, saw tho cabin hid among the pines, and going in found the eld man lying dead on tho floor, with the girl crouching besido him. When questioned, she would t nswernoth ing, but that the crime was hers. "I killed him. Yes. I killed 1dm; don't you see?" was all she said when they spoko to her; so she was taken to San Francisco, tried and sentenced yes, sen tenced to a prison cell for life, for tho cruel murder of her father! Such is the usual justice of our land. Sho never fal tered, never wavered through all tho slow tortures of those terrible days, shielding the man sho loved at the prico of her own soul, bowing her glorious head to the ac cursed blow, bearing tho ignominy and deathless shame of crime, simply, that the one sho loved andwho deserted her might live on in honor and escape the storm; for sho saw me, saw her lover, strike tho fatal blow. "And she, does she still live?" I gasped out, as the lawyer paused a moment to pour out a glass of wine. "Ah, no," ho said; "she faulted when the sentence was pronounced, and was carried across tho street to tho hospital, where sho died the ncxtniirht. I went Mover.to seo her there, and, just as tho sun went aown sno nail rose un. rmt out net hand, as if reaching toward somo one in the dark, murmured a name, and then fell bacfc, asleep! "A name! What name? I whisrjcrod. for my voice had deserted me, and he was watching me, quizzically, if not suspi ciously. "What name? Why, strangely enough. it was your own," he said, and then: "uood God, Jasper, what's the matter, man! Here, drink this and come out into tho air!" I drank the brandy he poured out for me; followed him out into tho sunshine that has over since been to my soul but a shadow; out among the jangling bells of the songs and merry laughter of this great, busy world, only to hear ever, amidst it oil, the dying moanings of the woman that I loved. So have I lived, doing what little I could In my own strange way, to drag out a life, burdened with this double curse of Cain, without drawing any other human heart within tho awful shadow of my sin. And so, to-night, as the great sun goes down behind the purple hill tops, I stretch out my hands into the darkness, and, touching hers, made clean by this, my true confession, of any shado of guilt, or shame, I turn my tired faco toward tho waiting stars, and with her own sweet name upon my dying breath. I go to meet her In that "land beyond." G. Werdan In American Magazine. A -Cue for Floral Tributes.
