THE WAY, There is a noble truth concerning the way which leads to the destruction of of sorrow. 1 lay within a little dusky wood, Withdrawn from men ; the noonday sunlight faint Peeped rarely down through the o'cr hauginghood , Of interlacing boughs ; yet there the saint, He a ho passed beyond sensation'sbound Beyond ideas that haunt our earthly round, Came from the dim unknown to visit 'How Hindi riind the way?" I Haiti to him ; Tims without words my heart o'er freighted spoke. Ho answered: "In the tide of being swiq^ Borne by Its waves, thy every anchor broke ; Thus, far beyond the jelf-feeling and self-thought, Into 1 1 ighty peace of spirits brought Ye shall behold new mornings and be glad." — Annik Finns, in lluryer 1 » Magazine for Febri A DIITECTIVE. As I pinned on my new shield, on being installed a member of the de tective force of a young western city, my first wish was for an opportunity to show my superiors and the-pub lic the metal I was made of. A n occasion was not long waiting. An adroit forgery came to light, of which one of the city banks had been the victim, and a large reward was offered for the capture of the perpetrators. Facts tended to fasten suspicion on a young merchant who had late ly failed under questionable circum stances, :iml whose disappearance, shortly after the forgery, had first led to coupling his name with the affair. Evidence sufficient to justify his arrest was at length accumulated, and ordern were given by our chief for his apprehension on sight. Here was tNte chance I had longed for. i'he shrewdest of the force had failed to gain any trace of the fugi tive. Could I but strike the trail and run ihe game to earth while so maqy were at fault, X would be a. made man, to say nothing of the re ward to be pocketed, Opinion was much divided as to whether Nimblemib—that was the forger's name—was concealed in this city, or whether he had gone into hiding elsewhere. One day 1 thought it could do it harm to take a jaunt of observa tion to a neighboring city. Entering the train early, I select ed a place which gave a good oppor tunity to observe the passengers as they arrived, which I made it my business to do while pretending to be busy with the morning paper. A genteel looking man, of middle seemingly, shared .the seat with me, and by degrees we fell into con versation. "You belong to the detective force, I perceive," remarked the stranger, glancing at the badge which a slight derangement of the lapel of my coat had left partly exposed. Blushing at the inadvertence, I hastened to conceal the tell talc token. "By the way," he continued, "that scamp, Nimblemib, must be a sharp fellow so long to avoid the vigilance to 1 no age of you gentry." "We'll have him yet," 1 replied with the air of a man who knew a good deal more than lie chose to tell. "It's to he hoped so," returned the Btranger dryly. "I suppose you would recognize him you saw him.' "On the spot," I said confidently. "You have seen him, then?" "No ; but I have his description so accurately that I could pick him out from a thousand." "Don't be too sure of that," my "Now I have companion answered. Dick Nimblenib fifty times, seen and would know him at a glance, hut never by the printed descrip tions I have seen—but stay—as 1 live!" The stranger gave a start of as tonishment, and, before I could in quire the reason, added in a sup-! pressed lone : "Don't look, at present, at the per son of whom I'm going to speak. He sits on the end next us of the third seat in front, on the opposite side. in Wait a moment and then scan him cautiously." I did as directed, and saw a young gentleman, whose face wore a dis turbed expression as he kept glanc ing about anxiously. "Do you know him ?" I inquired "1 do," whispered the stranger. "Who is lie ?" "Dick Nimblenib." I half sprang to my feet, my pur pose being to arrest the man on the The stranger's hand on my spot. arm restrained me. "Not so fast," said he, "or may spoil all. Though not a pro fessional, I'll give you a hit of ad vice for wliat it's worth. Keep the man in sight till he leaves the train; then follow him to his hiding place, where you'll have a chance not only to lind such confirmatory proofs as shall remove all doubt of his guilt but may succeed in bagging his ac complices." The advice seemed so wise that I you I I determined to follow it. At the next station the stranger, who told me his name was Pilchard, took his leave, wishing success to my enterprise. Tho^jioung man forward, from whom I scarce once removed my eyes, grew more fidgety as the time passed. He looks wandered distrust fully from side to side, and as each entered his startled man new comer betrayed a feeling akin to fright. Station after station was passed; but, though his agitation increased every movement, the young man never left his seat. Patiently as a cat in ambush I kept watch, longing for the moment to make the fatal spring. It was growing dusk when we stopped at alarge town, where fifteen minutes were allowed for supper. There was a general rush of the passengers, and in the confusion I lost sight of my man. He had cer tainly passed out with the crowd I should probably find him in the supper room. I went through it,hut he was not there. I searched high and low; he was nowhere to be fonnd. The last thing to do was to keep watch as the passengers returned to to take their places. With the vigi lance of a senti nal I paced the plat form by the side of the waiting train but he did not return. ner but he did not return. I exhausted inquiry and descrip I could gain no How I who vice fect my ed fact tion.but in vain, trace of the missing forger, blamed my stupidity in allowing him to slip through my fingers, and all giving heed to the shallow advice of that olliciou 3 Pilchard. How could 1 have been such a donkey ! Another train would leave in a pie of hours. Possibly Nimblenib that, cou might Yesufhe his journey thinking' to break his trail by the interval. on or or recovering himself with an eflort. f "You'll have an opportunity to There was nothin" better than to wait and see. The time passed slowly, hut my patience was rewarded at last. A carriage drove up, and who should step out but the person I was seeking; followed by a lady to whom he offered his arm. I advanced and laid my hand upon his shoulder. "I have orders to arrest you,' i saiil. The man seemed thunderstruck, and the lady uttered a scream. "I have done nothing to make me amenable to the law," said the ferm that," I answered, but my ; prove present duty is to take you into custody." Before I had time to answer, a stout, florid old gentleman bustling from a train which had just arrived, and catching sight of prisoner and his companion, began to berate them soundly. "This man is under my protec tion," I said, addressing the choler ic stranger, "and I cannot permit him to be abused." "I don't see what business it is of yours." returned the testy gentle 01 a I got on their track by accident ; j but I don't see what concern it is ot y° urs - ... ; came men.

A light dawned upon me. In stead of catching a forger, I had only been marring a wedding. At any rate, one good came of it. My interference had so completely turned the uncle's wrath against my self that he answered his neice'B last request with a grunt that had more of "yes" than "no" in it. I quickly took the next train for home. After an hour or two of not very pleasant meditation, a slap on the shoulder broke my reverie. It was my friend Sergt. Spottem, who had come aboard at the last station. "I say. Bill, I'm in luck," he cried "How so ?" ;'b 31 "I've just nabbed Nimblenib, and have him under guard in the smok Come and have a look at ing car. him." I accompanied my friend, and whom do you think I discovered in the person of the forger ? other than the affable Mr. Pilchard, who had given me such good ad vice in the morning, and whose per fect disguise had completely baffled my power of recognition by des cription. I felt that I was not specially call ed to be a detective, and faced the fact with resignation.-—Philadilphia. None Flyinj* Under water. ^ One of the most water-loving birds is a dainty little songster be longing to the thrush family, and populary known as the water-ousel, or dipper. This pretty little bird is found in most parts of the world, and likes best the neighborhood of these merry which rush boisterously on to their fate, now leaping headlong over some high rock, now swirling in some deep pool, and now eddying, dancing, splashing down a steep in cline. Water-full, pool, and eddy ing stream are alike to the water ousel, which will dash into one or the other with the same ready Con f K ] ance a8 the ordinary into the air. mountain streams 25 of In winter, when its watery home ; s frozen over, it will seek other and milder parts, unless it can be sure 01 finding holes in the ice, in which case it will not hesitate to remain at home, for it will plunge through a hole into the icy water with no care at all for temperature, and having made its venture successful by the capture of a small fish, will return to the air once more. So fond is it of the water that it will build its nest as near as possi ble, and one instance is recorded of a pair which actually built behind a water-fall, taking advantage of the space made by the shoot of the water over the top of the rock. Although the ousel uses its feet while swimming, its progress is progress is chiefly due to its wings, which are moved exactly as if flying in the air. The wings are admirably ly adapted to this use, being almost j as broad us long, and of compara t ^ ve jy f;reil t power. The tail is very ; short, and the body is covered with soft thick down, which, as in the true aquatic birds, affords an im pervious shield against the water. Like all other birds which cither casually or habitually resort to the water, the ousel seems to regard hut element as its safest retreat in time of danger. Even the little birds which have never before ven tured from the nest, and which tire quite unable to fly, have known, when alarmed during the absence of the parents, to rushs, to pell-mell to the nearest and with extraordinary faculty to along the heel of the stream been water in.«..
