My little daughter climbed up on my knee,
And said, with an air of great mystery,
"I've a secret to tell you, papa,
But I must whisper It close In your car,
And don't you speak of It, papa dear,
for there's nobody knows hut mamma.
"I am very rich I Very rich Indeed I
I have more money than 1 shall need;
I counted my money to-day

"I have fourteen nlcklcs and one three-cent,
Five silver quarters, though onoof thcm'sltcnt;
And, papa dear, something still better,
Three big white dollars 1 not one of them old,
And, whisper, one beautiful piece of gold
That came In my Undo Tom's letter."
Then sho clapped her small hands, laughed
merry and
Put her soft rosy lips down close to my car,
(Oh, so lovely tho fair curly head I)
"Am I not very rich! Now answer me true,
Am I not richer, far richer, Uian you!
Whisper, papa," she artlessly said.
I looked at her face, so young tnd so fair,
I thought of her life untouched by care,
Aiiil I said, with a happy sigh,
As my Hps touched softly her waiting car,
''You're exceedingly rich, my daughter dear!
Ten thousand times richer than II"
FROZEN TO DEATH.
"Will you bo my wlfo, Bossio?"
It was Henry Helton, a good-lookin"
Nantucket mate, who put this important
question ono night totlio captain's r icce,
aboard tlio whalo-shlp Wanderer, then
in the Arctic Ocean.
Bessio Baker, who was a nrcttv vouno-
woman, turned toward tliu speaker, Iter
rosy iaco nnu niacn oyes lighted by tho
lantern in tho rigging, and answered
with tho frank spirit of a tnio Nantucket
lass:
. . T ; 1 1 , .
-iwiii uuyour wiio, uarry, but you
wiij ira nun iisit uucio 11 no IS Willing.'
"Of courso you can liavo her," said
the good-natured skippor, when tho
first ollicer entered tho cabin and told
Ill's errand; "and if you liko, you can
uu tiiamuii iiuoaru suipi"
I would liko that, sir, if Bessio
WOUkl!"
"Hut how will Darklo feel?" said tlio
captain, alluding to liis second officer,
who bad also wanted Bessie, but whom
stio nau roiusotl. "lie has a savage
.temper." 0
"I caro nothing for his tompur," said
Helton. "Ho would not dare to inter
fcto." Soon after ho went on deck and spoko
to Bossio about boing married aboard
'itio snip.
Sho consontcd, and It was agreed that
tlio wodding should tnko place a fort
night tnoroaftor. Mr. Gray, a mission
nry. who had taken passago at tlio
ijandwioh Islands aboard tho Wiindnrnr.
for tho bon fit of Ids health, could per
form tlio ceremony.
On an afternoon, about two Aaya
boforo tlio ono fixed for tlio wedding,
tlio man at tho masthead gavo notico
that ho saw, far eastern through an
opening amongst a Hold of iloatlng ico
uurgs, bomcuung wnion iookou liko a
wreck.
"Tako a boat, Mr. Darklo," ho said
to Ids second mate, "and find out what
craft sho Is. Look about you and seo
it any ono of nor crew nro in sight."
"Av. av, sir." nnswored Darklo.
"I hopo it is not my brother's craft
mo nit. vernon," remarked Bolton
".Lho last timo I heard from htm, ho
said no was going to cruiso up horo.
should liko to go too, sir."
"You may go," said tho skipper.
Throwing ovor his shoulders a com
fortablo cloak ho usually woro when on
dlltv. and which wns nmith- trlmmn.l
with black and whito fur, Bolton sprang
into tlio boat which was now down, with
tlio kcciui muto in tlio stern shoots
Darkle woro no cloak, but in other m.
-spocts his iittiro was liko that of tho first
ollicer, to whom In fact, in slzo and
complexion, ho bora somo resemblance,
although tho bearing and mannorof tho
two were essentially diflbront.
Night had fallon by tho timo tho boat
reached tho wreck, and in tho fast
gathering gloom Helton who had
brought no lantern, had somo trouble
to discover tlio namo of tho craft.
"Ii is not tho Mt. Vernon," ho cried,
finally making out "Laura," in gilt lot
tars, 011 tho bow.
Ho sprang aboard, followed by Dar 1
IvIU.
"Pull back to tho ship," said tho Jat
'tor, soon attor, to tho crew, "and cot

an olovation looking up about half a
milo from tho wreck. "Ask tho captain
if I10 will uot Bond two or threo boats
rthat wo may tako off tho crow of this
craft, who aro doubtless dshoro there,
with their effects."
Ho gavo tho orders whilo Bolton down
Intho forecastle, looking nbout him,
could not hear what ho said.
Tho boat dlsapr cared in tho gather
ing shadows, and when Bolton canto up
ho was surprised to find it gone.
Darklo explained why ho had sent it
away. There was a lierco frown on his
brow when ho spoke, and the fiivd mato
could seo his eyes Hashing liko thoso of
a wild boast through tho partial gloom.
All nt onco ho throw himself upon his
companion, striking nt him with 11 hand
Rplko ho had picked up.
"llascal, you shall never marrv hcrl"
ho cried. "I will kill you first!"
"Hold there, Darklo nro you out of
your senses? What is tho uso of being
angry about it?" cried Bolton.
Dodging tlio handplko, nt tho samo
timo ho dealt tho second ollicer n blow
between tho oyes with Ids clenched
fist.
Darklo sprang quickly back, and ore
his opponent could avoid it brought the
implement lie held down upon his head.
Half stunned, Helton Mrtggored towards
tito broken ieo bulwarks. With a crv
of savage exultation, hit rival followed
him up, and seizing him by the throat
with 0110 hand, hurled him overboard.
Helton fell on an Iceberg drifting
past tlio wreck. Tho mutt momont
lie was out of Darklo's siirht in tlio
gloom.
"iiicro, 1 nope 1 am rid of iilin for
ever, ho muttered. "I will probably
bo suspected, but nothtnz can bo tirov-
ed against mo. I will say that Helton
slipped nnd fell overboard accidental
lyr 1 no captain was surprised to seo tho
boat's crow como back without their of
ficers. When informed why Darklo had cent
them, tho skippor shrugged his shoul
ders. Ho had his own thoughts about it, but
ho did not express thorn, lest ho should
alarm Bessie.
Ho at onco veered ship, and headed
in tho direction of tlio wreck, but,
before ho could find it, an unexpected
gale camo howling and roaring upon
them.
Bossio wni no.v alarmed. Talc will
anxiety on her lover's aecoiiut, sho
grasped her unclo's arm, saying sho
feared ho would now bo lost, isli.o
wreck would certainly go to pioeoj in
such n blow!
Tho captain endeavored to cheer hor,
telling hor that there was a baro chanco
that Helton and Dnrklo might save
themso'ves by getting 01: the ico.
"They will trcozo to death there,"
gasped lho unhappy girl.
lo this her undo mado no toply.
Tho dismal cracking of tho ship's
timbers, and tho weird shriek of tho
galo in tho shrouds, wns the onlv ro
sponso to tlio remark. As thero would
bo danger of tho vessel's going ashore,
if ho kept on his present course, tho
skipper was now obliged to ho. d in ;.n
other direction.
Tho night and tho next day passed,
nnd tho 0110 which was to have seen
Bessio a happy brido dawned upon tho
sea.

Tho girl went down Into her cabin
and gavo way to her grief.
Tlio galo still roared, and tho ocean
was white with foam and (lying spray.
Occasionally an Icobcrg was obsoi ved
in tho distnncc, and thccaptaln Brutin
ized it with a glass, but ho saw no ono
upon it.
Hours passed; tho gnlo abated, en
abling him to altar his course toward
tho land.
Now a number of borgs wero seen,
far ahead.
All at onco sho saw him start.
"You son something?" sho gasped.
"Yes, a human form on ono ot those
bergs!"
As tho vessel drew near to it, tlio
ngltatcd girl took tho glass from hor
unclo's hand. Ho steadied it for hor
In tho right direction.
"It is ho!" sho shrieked; "but oh,
uncle, is ho allvo? Romcmbor It. Is two
days since ho loft us!"
Tho captain mado no reply, but his
hand trembled as ho again took tho
glass.
Bessio know that ho shared hor foars.
"It is really Bolton," he said, as if
ho had hoped ho had boon mistaken.
"Oh, yes, undo, I recognizo his
cloak tho ono linod with whito and
black fur!"
Nearer drew tho ship to tho berg.
"Ho does not move!" whispered tho
third mate to thoskippoi.
"Bessio. I think vou hn.il Wtnr ,

Sho mado no answer; sho stood as if
transfixed, hor gazo rivotcd on tho 11"

Tlio vessel was soon near enough for
tlio form to bo plainly seen wltli tho

"I will go, too!" cried Be.io, when
tlio captain backed tho main yard and
lowered tho boot.
Ho objected but sho insisted on goin",
and ho sillowod her to havo her way,
thinking that after all it woro best sho
should learn tho worst as soon ns pos

So Intent lmd all been ttnon this sad
errand that they had not noticed a boat
apnro.icning irom shore.
Bessio was tho first to notico it, nnd
among lho crow in it sho recognized hor
lover, Henry Helton!
A moment later ho was out upon tho
Ico nnd tho girl wns clasped to his
bre:st.
As tlio captain and his men gathered
round him to shako hands, ho explained
how ho lmd been attacked nnd hurled
from tlio wrec- by Darkle.
When lie fell, his cloak caught on a
spiko on tho schooner's side, nnd thus
left behind him, it must afterwards havo
been found by Darklo. nnd liavo been
used by liltn in vain to kcop himself

As to Darkle, Bolton nnd tho casta
ways, thinking ho might possibly havo
reached tho slioro on tho ico, aftor tlio
wreck broko up, had looked for him,
but had seen nothing of him until to
day, when they (darted for the ship.
It was ovldcnt that, when tho wreck
was going to pieces, tho unfortunnto
man succeeded in getting on tho ice
berg, which the gate must havo car; led
past tho headland out to sea. Subsequent
ly it had drifted with tho current to its

for its occupant to bo Fnrcd.
Tho bodv was buried from thn vnnl

A week later Bessio nnd Helton u-nm

Although an ocean bridal, it proved
to bo a very pleasnt weddlm. nnd
there wero many cheers for tho hanm-

About tho timo tho now comet was nt
lis brightest wo took tho occasion of a
cnll from Captain Sam, of tho Piuto
trlbo, to ask him about tho notions hold
by his pcoplo In regard to such celestial
visitants. Sitm said ho would presently
bring to us nn old man of his tribo who

In somo trepidation after so much coro

did ho know nil about it. "It was,"
ho said, "a wounded star." Said ho;
"It Is badly hurt, but It will getaway."
Without further ceremony or preamble
ho proceeded to glvo us the wholo econ

"Tlio sun rules tho heavens. Ho 1

Widows.
St Lonls Republican Letter.
Alt widows aro young, or rnthcr thoy
aro called so until it would seem that
tho loss ot a husband Is tho Secret of
perpetual youth. Tho want of ono, on
lho other hand, may bo held ns bond
ami security lor premature ngo for cer
tain it is that n woman is hold "passo"

youngor than herself and vory nttrac-
uu. 0110 was passed, poor, barolv
urcsicd, mother of nino children, and
owner only of tho mortgaged home
stead on which thoy livdd. But sho
was a widow; thoro was no denying
tliM. As sho sank upon tho sofa sho
dropped (it scorned to bo.nccidcntnlly) a
whitoy-brown paporpnrcol, out of which
rolled a spool or two, a darning egg, a

Tho, men all dived to secure thorn.
Eaolt man got something and restored
the samo lo tlio owner, whereupon she
manned thorn with nn overpoworing

ing without a pocket, showod thorn tho
placo whore tlio pocket ought to bo, nnd
continuod to talk about the pocket sho
didn't liavo and tho ins nnd outs of dif
ferent sorts of pockets for ton or iiftcon
minutes, when sho was called for by a
friend in a carriage I do not remem
ber that any othor topic was Introduced
or that anything occurred which was
calculated lo divert tho attention of hor
boat ore f.oni tho all-obsorblng topic,
but this I do know that whon sho left

what would havo died for hor. Ono and
all, tlioy woro madly in lovo, nnd, for
aught 1 know, may bo so to tho present

that somo forlorn, shipwrecked sister
might bo benoiittod; but I hnvo boon
to'.d by many that thoy hnvo tried it
faithfully. Thoy havo gono without
pockets, nnd said so, and dropped their
bundles ntopportuuo moments. Indeed,
there is ono poor girl who says sho has
almost thrown nway everything sho had,
but without accomplishing any such ro
