knows Instinctively that bad weather
was in store, that the long expected snow
would make its appearance ere long.
Between the fitfnl gusts of wind there
i was something solemn and impressive in
the aspect of nature and in the heavy,
lifeless atmosphere, something that sug
gested • breathless waiting for the com
ing storm.
Meanwhile ths scattered flocks of
sheep moved in a leisurely fashion along
the steep sides of the fells, and a pair of
lovers lingered in the dene, too absorbed
in their own insignificant portion of the
world's business to pay much attention
to the Impending trouble.
The girl was yoang, and on her cheeks
bloomed the roses of vigorous health,
but she was poorly dressed, while the
young man, who was enacting—after a
somewhat mean fashion—the part of
lover, looked prosperous and well to da

of bitterness, as her blue eyes looked
wUtfnlly np through a mist of tears. "It
isn't ma fault that Aw canna keep him
straight, and yet Aw'm to be punished
for it, as if it was!"
Ralph turned his head a war. He could
not bear to meet the pathetic appeal of
her eyes. He had imagined himself
stronger until that moment. It had re
quired some courage to face the ordeal,
which proved worse than he had antici
He was a flue, athletic looking young
fellow, but there was a feebleness abont
his mouth and jaw that did not promise
much moral stamina.
"It's to be all over betwixt us, then,
because yer feyther wishes it?" the girl
went on in a tremulous voice.
Ralph shuffled about from one foot to
the other for a minute or two, lien he
burst out.
"How can Aw say it—what would yer

me off, Aw've nowt o' my own te live
on. Aw, man, stick te the farm and to

me that's been browt np decently?"
Nelly knew nothing of the world. In
this remote north country nook had her
whole life been passed, and from the
larger life that books might have opened
out her lack of education had debarred
her. Nevertheless she waa a woman
and had intuitions. It crossed her mind
bow that a man who loved a woman
truly and unselfishly might without
much self denial do more heroic things
for her sake. Bnt she »aid nothing.
She loved him, and she wished to be
lieve the best of him.
A* Ralph Wilson looked at her he rec
ognized that for himself as well as for
the (tol this separation which cirenm
stanoes had rendered imperative was a
real hardship.
Where in all the countryside could
hry«qnal be found in looks, manners,
sweetness of disposition, loyalty of heart?
Though she was only the child of a
drunken, disreputable old shepherd, she
could hold her own against any of the
farmers' daughters in the neighborhood.
It was this fact of her unfortunate par
entage that had proved the stumbling
block to their happiness. They had
been thrown together from childhood,
for Martin Daglish, the shepherd, had
grown old in Farmer Wilson's employ
ment, -and an attachment had sprung up
between them when Nelly bloomed into
womanhood. But, alas, for the course of
true lore! It had from the first been
shadowed by the shame and degradation
of tho girl's father.
During the course of tho year that was
drawing to a close tite drunkard had
made a tremendous effort for the sake
of his child, whom he fondly loved, to
reform, and Farmer Wilson bad rattier
reluctantly given his consent to the mar
riage. He thought that Ralph might
hay* done better, in a worldly sense,
than marry Nelly Daglish. There were
fanners' daughters about who had both
money and good connections, and the lad
was a fool to throw himself away, but
she was a good, useful, industrious girl
all the same, and if only the old man ful
filled his promise and kept steady there
wasn't much to be said against the
That "if r * A month before this the
shepherd had broken oat again worse
than ever for his enforced abstinence
and had become the object of public
scorn and contumely.
Then it was that Farmer Wilson inter
fered with • high hand and withdrew
his consent peremptorily. It was all
very well to marry a poor girl, though
even that was a foolish concern when
capital was required to develop the re
sources of the land, but to marry a poor
girl whose father was a shame and a dis
grace to the neighborhood was too idiotic
ao act to be tolerated without some en
deavor being made to pat a stop to it
The fanner had therefore a rather
stormy interview with his only son. At
first the lad stack to his resolution to
marry Nelly at all hazards and trust
to their united efforts either to keep the
old shepherd steady or to give him the
cold shoulder. Bat Farmer Wilson was
a man of the world, and he knew the
fallacy of these hopes, old Martin Dag
llah was past reformation in his eyes,
and even Ralph acknowledged that he
was not himself sanguine about it. And
Nelly would stick to her father through
thick or thin; that was the worst of itt
Ralph Wilson was weak, though well
Intentkmed, and he proved as wax in his
father's hands.
Before the conclusion of the scene he
had promised to see Nelly and to induce
her to give, him back his plighted troth.
The interview now proceeding was the
result of that promise.
"Don't yon imagine that you have the
wont of it, Nelly." said Ralph as he
felt again the charm of her presence.
"These things come more hard to a man
than a woman, because they are not so
Nelly sighed.

Nellie drew herself slowly away and
looked him straight in the face.
"You don't mean a word of what

At this conclusion tho yoang fellow
limiK his head, feeling rather ashamed of
his ill nature, and the pair walked in a
ii-i-iii. '.. .!■.,: dejected manner toward
the farm. Where the two roads joined
they parted, sullen, miserable, without
their customary kiss or even a friendly
Again the little dene appeared desert
ed and resumed its normal aspect of ex
pectation, the spell having been broken
momentarily by the young and eager
But the solitude and silence did not
have long to reign. Up one bank of the
stream straggled a thicket of ragged
shrubs, alders and hawthorns, and from
thence there emerged a few minutes
afterward the figure of a man. He
crawled np to the level ground upon his
hands and knees, like some prowling
beast that had been in hiding.
When he reached the road, he ruse to
hia feet and stood upright, or at least
made as near an approach to that posi
tion as his own condition wonld allow,
for he was evidently greatly under the
influence of alcohol.
He rubbed his hand across his eyes
and gazed in a bewildered fashion in the
direction taken by the pair of lover*.
"Ma canny Nolly! Ma bonny lassr
he mnttered in a tremulous, husky voiri,
the voice of a whisky drinker, "juat te
think she ha' stuck by me like yon!"
He stood silent for a moment after
this, as though endeavoring to master
the situation; then he gave himself a
shake like as a dog does on emerging
from the water.
"You boozy, dram driukin old soak
er, dinna ye feel ashamed o' yerselT
he burst out at last. "What's wrong
wi' ye? Lemine think."
But it was of no use for him to try
and consider. The earth reeled around
and met tho sky, and the road rose up
and hit him in the face. His brain was
on fire, and he could not think.
He stumbled down to the edge of the
stream again, and at the imminent risk
of meeting death by drowning managed
to lave his face and head in the icy cold
water and to gulp down great drafts of
the same, making, it must be confessed,
a wry face at the latter part of the pro
Then he sat down on a heap of stones,
and resting his face in his hands made
another effort.
He was the miserable wreck of a fine,
stalwart man. Although little past the
prime of life, drink had dona its work,
and he looked a broken down old toper
on the brink of the grave. He bad the
bleared, unsteady eyes of a drunkard, a
drunkard's loose, slobbery month, but
bis features were of an originally good
and pleasing type, and it was not diffi
cult to trace in his face a likeness to
pretty Nelly.
"He was reet—the confoonded young
fool was reet—and my canny bairn was
wrong. There is no nse in a life like
mine—none whateverl An if I was deid
he' marry her and she' be happy—she'd
be happy."
It was not a pleasant retrospect that
life of his, look at it how he might. Lost
opportunities, hopes that had died un
natural deaths, ambitions that had been
drowned under that thirsty sea that hod
engulfed his manhood and made of him
the sot he was.
Ood forgive him 1 The face of the wife
whose heart he had broken rose before
him now in his maudlin repentance to
add to his misery. He remembered the
look in her eyes as she feebly took his
hand in her own dying ones and laid it
upon the head of her baby girl.
"B» good—to Nelly—and—and dinna
make her life-like mine has been—
through that—cursed drink!"
Ha had promised, with the tears of
maudlin grief in his eyes, and h. had
honestly meant to keep tfiat promise.
And now her life—the life of that child
—was to be wracked through his.
"It would be all reet if I wero only
deid," he said again despairingly.
As he stumbled homeward he noticed
with some anxiety the signs of the

when her father entered the cottage
where they lived, but otherwise she
showed no traces of the ordeal she had
It was a poor sort of place, that hum
ble shepherd's hot, but scrnpulously
clean and neat, and Martin's sapper of
bread and cheese was laid out ready for
his arrival.
How different things might havo
looked, he thought, had he not gone to
the bad years before! He had once been

himself, for the Daglishes had been yeo
men and owners of their own land for
generations back, but it had all gone,
had all melted away to satisfy that un
natural thirst which had taken posses
sion of the last of the family.
Martin's reflections, as the drink died
out of him, were, of a very sad and de
pressing character. He leaned his head
on his hand and kept watching Nelly all
the while. It was the only good^urf
trait left in him luru^^JH ...-

time little else than alcohol, and within
his veins like cried out to like. Never
theless a rush of tenderness still came
over hi* soddened senses whenever she
gave him a kind word or glance.

in a gentle voice as she noticed that lie

"Does your head ache very bad?"
Martin pnt up his trembling hand as
though to stop her.

disgrace to ye, and that the sooner Aw'm
onto' the world the tietter for every uue,
bat dinna pity me. Aw canna bide it."
" A w'll say nothing of the kind," retort
ed Nelly indignantly. "I wonld like

for your own sake as well as mine, but

shepherd. -Oh! Kelly, Kelly, ye break

wish me deid, then?'
For answer Nelly came across to
where he sat, pnt her soft, loving arms
around his neck and kissed the poor,
bleared, drink sodden face over and over
Many a time afterward did the mem
ory of those kisses rise to the girl's mind
and comfort her inexpressibly.
Before daybreak tho clouds had re
solved themselves into a storm of snow,
the most penetrating and persistent that
had been known, even in that bleak dis
trict, for many years.
Long ere dawn Martin Daglish was up
and away over the fells to look after the
outlying flocks in his charge.
On these extensive border farms, where
the grazing land ia composed both of
valley and tell, and where the aheep
travel miles away from any place of safe
■belter and refuge, the ntmost precau
tions are necessary in rough seasons to
prevent the flocks from perishing from
cold or being engulfed in a living grave
of snowdrifts.
In the hollows these same drifts form
to an alarming depth, and many a fleecy
clad carcass lies buried beneath every
considerable fall of snow, unions the
greatest care is taken to prevent such
Martin was a good and careful shep
herd, and in spite of hi* failing was
never known to neglect the safety of his
But on thin morning aa he crossed the
moors in the faccuf that blinding storm
he recognized the fact that it would take
him all his timo to prevent many of
them from perixhing In this storm. The
other shopherds were off, aljio, in differ
ent directions, but tho district under
Martin's special charge was the moot re
mote and tho one soonest in danger,
because it lay in a situation that exposed
It to the inclemency of the weather.
The snow came down in that line,
powdery, impalpable sort of fashion
which denotes a protracted and heavy
fall, and it was all that Martin could do
to keep to the track. Had h» not been
the most experienced and weatherwise
of pedestrians he must have inevitably
been lost at once.
The mow glued his eyelid* together,
penetrated his clothing and froze upon
hia face. Even his dog Rover, a collie of
great sagacity and experience, required
some encouragement to induce him to
(ace the storm, aud every now and again
he whined and drew closer to his mas
ter's heels, as though protesting against
tho cruelty of nature.
Long before they reached the place
where the last flock of sheep wero hud
dled helplessly together awaiting in stu
pid resignation their doom both man
and dog wero about spent
But at sight of the silly, frightened
■beep Rover gave a joyous bark and
bounded forward at once, true to his in
stinct and training. With the stupidity
of their kind the creatures hod chosen
the very worst spot they could have
•elected wherein to abide daring the
severity of the storm.
The wind whirled aud eddied up a
narrow gorge and laid great wreaths of
(now all about their woolly sides.
Martin knew that if they could be
once driven around to tho ether side of
the hill, where tho wind would keep the
ground comparatively free from snow,
and where there was also some shelter
to be obtained from a hemel and a
roughly constructed foldyard, fenced
round with stone walls, there would be
little to dread, and they could be looked
*fter and fed, until the severity of tho
storm was passed.
But it required considerable deter
mination to make the creatures more at
all, and still more to do ao iu'tlu teeth
of the cutting wind. The cold had
benumbed them and rendered them
almost torpid.
Rover's a\t\r however, roused
them to a faint display of animation,
and he began proceedings at once, by
running uronnd ami biting, or pretend
ing to bite the laggards, barking all the
while as loudly as his strength would al
After a lmmito or two they began to
move in the direction indicated to the
dog by bin master, and very slowly, but
sunlv, they wore gradually led away
from their dangerous situation into
safely. It took a long time for them to
reach the other side of the hill and to
fnd the part fenced in by the roughly
built ami uiortarlesa Htoue walls and
tin; hurdled, Htuffed with ragged fnrie,
but the difficult task was accomplished
at length, and every sheep and yearling
lamb was folded safe.
Martin, the shepherd, gave a great sigh
of relief aa the last bleating straggler
passed through the gap, and he placed a
hurdle, across it to prevent their egress,
but be acknowledged to himself that a
few lniiniU"! lunger and they would in
evitably have mastered him.
He was faint from lack of food. Kir.c*
the noon of tho previous day uot a mor

the light of \i>-tuul« after his debauch
and had left home in such haste that
morning that he had no time to break
bis fast, even though Nelly insisted upon
getting up ami lighting the ore and boil
ing the kettle. He had. swallowed a
drink of tea, but nothing more. Now he
bitterly regretted his own folly aa the
•train told ujK-ii his exhausted vitality.
It %v:is over now. however, and the

the right path. T)i« tnnw was coming
down softly, but pitilessly, wrapping

familiar landmark.
On an ordinary occasion the old shep

abont to try and preserve, an infinite
pity and tenderness for the girl whose
