There is just enough air to keep the Dolphin moving at a quiet rate, and the passengers are gathering on deck toenjoy the matchless evening.

At thisobservntion, w hich was intend ed for no particular ears, Adolphus xiizgiooon aroused nimscll. "Aw what'sthat, Miss Harris? Aw--have you seen bears at sea?" "Yes, and monkeys too," was the quick reply.

I was reclining on tho deck, about a dozen feet from where tho lovers stood not with any intention of listening to their words, but simply because I had liken my position liiB',, and was too lan guid to change it. 1 had been an inva lid for years, and was now recovering from a severe spell of sickness. I was lazily drawing at my Havana, puffing tho thin fragrant smoko from my month without removing the cigar, and gazing upward at tho brilliant stars us they slowly sailed overhead. I was in that delicionsly dreamy state, half aslcop and half awake, hearing only the murmur of the voices around me as one hears tho faint sound of a distant water fall. I presume I had lain thus for nearly an hour, and mv cigar had burned almost to my month, while the long column of ashes was still unbro ken, when something struck my car like the sound of a bell. It was not until I had heard it sevcrid times that it seemed really to affect my senses. All at once I gave a start, the ashes dropped upon my bosom, and I arose to a sitting position and gazc-1 around me. "Hark!" said I; "didn't yon hear that bell?" "Just what t have been trying to make i.dmunil believe! laughed X-lor-ence Harris; "he persisted in not be- Jiaving it. "Listen!" said I, raising my hand. And immediately thoro foil a death- It ko silence. And while thus intently listening, there came aeross the sea, faint but dis tinct, the soft, distant sound of a bell. We scarcely breathed for a minute, and the strange, solemn sound was repent ed at regular intervals, as if .swung by the hand of some exhausted sufferer, or tolled by the swoll of the ocean. Cap tain bv this time had approached and stood in the attitude of attention. "We must be near the land?" I ven . tured to say, rather in the form of in quiry than in that of an assertion. "No, sir," responded the Captain; "the nearest island is a good eight hun dred miles away, and this doesn't come from there, I should think." "What can it be?" asked several, in the same breath. "The souad comes from that direc- tion," said Florence Harris, pointing towards the equator. "Perhaps it is on board a ship?" I ngain ventured. "Don't think it is, replied the Cap tain with a shako of the hend. "What can it be?" asked Florence. it the the To this no one ventured to reply for several moments. In tho mean time, ter. the tolliiifr of tho bell had become dis tinct and Adolphtts Fitzgibbon gave ft yawn, a groan, and awoke. Aw ve aw 1 was about to suggest- aw that the tea-bell should ring aw aw aw!" ho stammered, confusedly, rising to his feet and pitching back and forth. Then, seeing us ull in the atti tude of uttention, he asked, "What aw tho doose is tho matter? "It's tho bell of doom!" exclaimed Uackstay Hob, n tall, scarred sailor, from his position nt tho wheel. Pshaw! you re too childish, replied the Captain. " Whatever is it, we are rapidly approaching it, for notice how much louder it sounds. Such was the case. The bell was now heard distinctly to tho south, and was approaching nearer every moment. shortly after the Captain took his night glass and gazed long and intently in that direction. Vt hen ho lowered it, he said : "I can just discover a dark body rising and falling on the waves, but nothing more. Uaekstay Hob, you have got the best eyesight of any one on board, see what vou call make of it." isol) resigned ins place at the wheel to one of the men, and came forward and took the glass.

Don t vou see anything like a sail ? inquired the Captain. otaspeck, nor anvplaentoput oni either. Hold n minute," exclaimed Uaekstay Hob. "I've got her in range now. she urn t got the least uute ol boom, yard, or anything like. SI looks like some great hulk of a light boat. Hold on again ; I see tho bell They've rigged it up to the masthead so that it swings back'ards and for'ard every time the thing gives n lurch t leeward." "Cau you sec anything aboard?" "Xot a creetur, living or dead." Keep her away a couple of points. cried the Captain to the man at tl wheel. "Ay, ay, sh !" And the ship's course was altered, as to bring her rapidly near the my tenons emit, towards which nil ey were directed. Several of the company now openly remarked that there was something upernutural in the appearance of this boat, with its tolling bell. To nil of these, l lorchco Harris and her lover re plied lightly, neither of them having the least faith in their credulity. The Captain listened impatiently, und then said, "You are all a set of cowards. No doubt you imagine Old Nick is aboard with a crew of little imps, bound for Gagupngos Isles with a load of brim stone. It you'll content yourselves for half an hour longer. I'll tell you some thing abou tit, fori intend to board that old lumbering hulk, even if it turns out to bo the Flying Dutchman or Davy Jones' Hug-ship, and shall explore it from stem to stern. To show that he meant what he said, orders were given to heave to, and to get one of the boats in readiness. By this time the nondescript was plainly visible to all. It appeared to be an old bulk, with a single mast in the centre. The bell was suspended from the mast head, and ever and anon sent forth its solemn tolling, as the hulk rose and sank with the heaving of the sea. Before the ship was brought to, we hud passed the hulk some distance, so that when wo halted there were several hundred yards intervening, and it was only dimly discernible. A boat was lowered, and the Captain having selected a crow, pulled away to ward the hulk. I asked permission to accompany it, but, on account of a re cent illness, was refused. Fortunate in deed, for me was that refusal. There was souic thiugsoextruordinurv regarding the appearance and action of the old hulk, that the curiosity of us all was so intense as to ho painlul. strained our gaze, us the captain and crew drew rapidly near it. e saw the distance swiltlv decrease between tho two boats, until the shad owy forms merged into one. And then followed an impressive silence sudden ly broken by a howl, a pistol shot, and a screnm ; and as our hearts ulmoststoi lied beating, we saw n moment later tin boat put oil' from the hulk, and the men rowing with all their might back to Un ship. As they came nearer, we discov ered that the captain was missing. Backstay Bob dashed toward the boat, and, shaking his list at tho men demanded furiously. "You cowardly dogs! Whcro is Captain Luster?" "Tho devil has got him :" Absurd as the reply might have seem ed at any other time, it was littered in solemn earnest, ns the ghastly faces of tho crew attested. In reply to our eager questions, they said the moment they came alongside the cralt they heard a low, hollow, unearthly sound which caused them to hesitate. The Captain climbed up the side of the ves sel, deeended the hatch-way, and disap peared from view. He was hardly out of sight when the noise they had heard at first was repeated, far louder and fiercer. The next moment tho report of the Captain s pistol wns heard, fol lowed by a terrific shreak, and then all was still. Horror-struck, they cidlcd loudly and repeatedly to their commander, but re ceiving no nnswor, pulled away from the ship. "You're a purtv set of cowardly sneaks, ain't you, to go and desert your Captain that way, when, like enough he neded yon to save his life," exclaim ed Backstay Bob, forgetting in his fury that the first mati was among those whom he dononnced. ''I'm going back to that old hulk, and if I can't get at the devil in any other way I'll put a keg of powder to it and blow it to blazes. "Bob is right, if his excitement does make him forget his manners," said the mate. "It was not my intention to desert Captain Luster in trouble.

Theheud andoiieof hislinibs were 'one, and there was scarcely asemblauee if humanity in the remains before us N'eur him was the gaunt, terrible form if a Bengal tiger, killed by tho bullet utlass and daggerof Prescott and Baek- itay Bob.

Here, for instance, is an eilito- rial article from an American newspa- per which has drifted into our ward room over theso Mediterranean seas, The journal is a responsible newspaper, with a wide circulation.

He went to the Hotel Bristol in Puns. Ho took the Prince of Wales' apartments. He never r.sks the cost of his rooms at ho- tels, but throws money about with a lavish hand.

Some Keiisiltle Advice l-iefially for Numlry w omen. Dr. J. luteheld Ward lectured in New York on the "Hygiene of the voice."

In order that acts of singing be properly perform- il, it is absolutely necessary t lint the stomach bo nearly emptv. Alcoholic beverages should not on any consider ation be indulged in by vocal artists, for they destroy freshness and vivacity, and produce a peculiar hoarseness and ough easily distinguished by the prac ticed ear. For tho proper development of the vocal chords there nro several rules which must be observed. The oxercises must bo regularly and systematically practiced ; they must always bo within the register; tliev should never be push ed to the point of fatiguo; they should never be sung too loud; they should never be made use of when tho vocal organs are attacked by cold, no matter how slight ; nnd they should bo practic ed while standing upright, so as to al low a free play of the lungs and acces sory vocal organs, llodily oxoreiso is especially beneficial to the singer.
