THE HOCK ISTjAND ARGUS; THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1888.

Thy piirermind, that secretly came o'er me, And unto heaven's clearer light upbore met Or did remembrance sitae me in that hour With thoughts of words and deeds which pierced unkindly That gentle heart, still loving me so blindly.

What is the matter with your My cousin Lilith sat up in the hammock in whit'S she had been idly swinging for the last half hour, and glanced curiously at me as she poke; it was so unusual, this display of tem per on my part, that Lilith was surprised; how was she to know that Felix Gerard's name my heart stopped beat nig, and 1 felt as if I was suffocating, and, if I spot.' sharply, it was only that she might i (mess how I suffered I "There is nothing the matter with me," Tsaiil, in answer to her question.

Lrood night." .. 5?ii r.wrt niornimr, when I awoke. I won dered for a moment what had happened to maire me so in tense tv hanpv. I remembered, and jumping quickly out of bed, began my toilet; no foreboding of sorrow came to me then. Our letters were laid near the plates at break fast, and when 1 entered the dialog room, 1 noticed there was one for Felix. He came in later, and when he saw the letter he started, opened it, and when ha read the color left his face, an-i he looked like a man suddenly bereft of life He recovered him self, and making an excuse left the room. My breakfast remained untouched; I felt that he was in trouble of some kiud, but what An hour Inter, a note was brought me by one or the mams; it was from Felix: Matty -I am in the summer bouse at the cor ner of tli Lino. Will you come to me when yoa receive this Something has happened. I can say no more till I see you. Fcux. I snatched up a garden hat that was in the hall, and ran, instead of walked, until I came to where my durung waited. Without giving htm time to SDeak, 1 said: "Oh, Ftflix, what is it( I saw your face when you read that hateful letter at break fast, and I know that something is wrong: bavi you los.t any monevr 'Would to God that were all! No, dear my money is quite safe; but, obf Matey, I do not know how to teil vou the truth.' Whatever it is. teil me at once; I can bear anything but suspense."

And you dared ask me to be your wife:1 "For God's sake, little one, do not look at me like that! I am not n scoundrel. I thought 1 was free to win vou, darling; you don't sup pose I would have spoken to you, had it been otherwise, "Then Your wife is dadf "For four vears I believed so, but the letter I received this morning is from her, saying she is alive, the news of ber death being a mistake Uut lt me tell you the story of my folly, Matey. Eight years ago, when I was a lad of "30, I married a pretty but ignorant girl. Too soon 1 discovered that she was ad dicted to drink, and when we bad been but two years married 1 whs compelled to sepa rate from her. Through my lawyer I nade over part of mv income for her support and went abroad. Two years later 1 read of her d?ath in the papers, I never told any one of my niamafB, and had made up my mind to live single the rest of my life; but your sweet face, little woman, changed all my resolutions and 1 once more began to build fanciful pic tures of my futureyou, darling, being the chief figure in all. Oh, Matey, it is so hard to give it all up. At sight of his anguish my own pain in creased. I put my hand gentiy on his bowed bead. 4Tell me, Felix, what the letter says. "Here read for yourself." I dan say you were clad to har of my death, hut 1 an. still alive. It was another woman who died, and they gave her my name through mis take: when I g"t vaIL I did not care to correct the mistake. I have been in England for the last two yean, and am now coming home I am still your wife, even though you did desert m, A-ynie Gerard. The writing was that of an uneducated per son, and I pitied my poor boy more than ever. i bad m time then to think ol my sea. "Matey, dear, I shall leave here today I must not remain longer; but how can I part from you? Oh, darling, perhaps in the years to come, when vou have forgotten the pain of this time, some other man better than I may win you; but no other can love you better, or as well." "No other man will ever win me. I gave you all the love I hod t give, and f am not one to change. I shall goon loving you to the end of life. God grant it may be a short one!' "Matey, dear one, can you ever forgive i me for bringing this sorrow into your young lifer "Hush, Felix! It is not your fault; I do not blame you, dear." "My precious girlf Then he pressed a kiss on ray forehead, and left me. 1 remained there for hours, hut at last arousal myself and le't the summer bonne. My cousin was in the hammock, on the lawn, and called me. I turned mechanically, and at down on the grass, 1 paid no attention to what Lilith was saying; in fact I did not hear ber until she mentioned my darling's name, "How strangely Mr. Gerard acted at break fast! Did you notice it, Matey f It was then I spoke sharply, and left her. and came to my own room. How long I sat tbere 1 do not know. I was aroused by a knock at the door, and Liliths voice asking me if I was awake. I rubbed my cheeks l ji' L iS 'tle color in them and opened the door. My cousin came in and gave me a note. "Mr. Gerard received news that compelled him to leave here at once, and he left this note, as he did not wish to disturb you to flay good -by. 1 am sorry he has gone; we shall miss him very much." 1 trembled as I took the uote; my cousin noticed it and said; "Matey, dear, I fear you are not well Why, you are tremblins all over!" "I am chilly, that is all; it will soon pass. Bhe left me after a little, and when 1 was alone again 1 opened the letter; a ring dropped out the one that Felix had always worn on his little linger. This is what I read: Maiey, dear little one, 1 know 1 oujrht to go away withou: writing to you, hut I feel that 1 must say some words of comfort. 1 know, rimr. that the burden you are called upon to hearts ry nam ror one so youns; out God will lighten it, and tn his own (fowl time send relief as I hops he may to me I have told your aunt all; she was very kind to me.

I put the Tins be sent rrmnn mvfln. kissing it passionately as 1 did so; then I koew no ..more. When my aunt came to me be found me lying on the floor in a swoon. Fir years had passed since that October day when my !r-e and I parted, and 1 was Margaret Doui&s st; U. i had never heard of Felix, but he was seldom absent from my thoughts. 1 was sitt;ng alv-je one afternoon when Aunt Janet came in and gave me a letter. As soon as! saw the writing I knew it was from Felix: Purest 1 am dying; the doctors give me a few hours to live almost. Cotno as quickly as you can to the inclosed address, I must see you once more, Frux. Two hours later found me by the bedside of my first and last love now surely dying. A faint smile parted his lips as he took my hand in his and looked lovinirlv in mv faca. "You have changed, darling," he whis- perea, "out ins the same sweet face stilL" i couia not speak; a lump was nsins tn mv xnroat. You wear mv rinc, w takine mv hand his, ''so you have not forgotten, dear.

Matey, before you come, too; then you will find me waiting for you. Try and think, dtar. that this is not good-by. for wo shall meet again, and it will not be in the gloaming day will have dawned for us both," He put his hand gently on mv bowed head. and when, a few minutes later, the doctor came, it did not need the look on his face tt? tell me that my darling was at rest. His wife is an imnuto of an insane asylum; her reason left her when she heard of his death, for, with all her faints, she loved him as much as a woman like her could love any one. For bis dear sake I do all 1 can to make her wretchti life comfortable; if she has sinned, God has assuredly punished her. My darling1 presence seems nearer to me when the gloaming draws near, and I am waiting patieutly for that day when we wilt meet again in a better world. And as I walk by the vast, calm river, The awful river so dread to see. I say, '-Thy breadth and thy depth forever Are bridged by his thoughts that cross to me." Waver ley Magazine. WATCHES AND DIAMONDS. JHZ METROPOLIS OF ICELAND. Mfbts and Sounds of Reykjavik Build ings Lines of Tonics. Reykjavik, poor' little metropolis of 2.000 Inhabitants, has, nevertheless, its sights and lounds. Its houses, with but few exceptions of wood, consist usually of a single story, but in isolated instances rise to the dignity of two. Through the town runs a wide and tolerably straight street, on which live sev eral of the dignitaries of the island, the bish op, the governor, the chief justice, and other members of the government. Lpon one side, surrounded by wooden palings, is the public square, in the center of which stands a bronze statue of Thorwaldsen, presented by the Danish government to the native country of the sculptor. At the farther end is the little cathedral, which contains a mar ble font, by the artist himself. Around the different sides of the square are grouped the new parliament house, the postnttice and a school for girls which draws its pupils from all parts of the country. One of the most imposing buildings of the capital is the jail, and two of the most awe inspiring of the citizens are the policemen, wbo in turn patrol the streets in felt helmets and uniforms. It was n. t discovered, how ever, that they ever arrested anybody, be cause nooody ever so far forgot themselves as to warrant arrest. The jail, consequent Iv, is always empty, a fact that can be but im perfect iy understood when one sees its mani- fast superiority to all other dwellings. One of the policemen exercises, in addition to his function ot guardian of the public weal, that of librarian of the Icelandic Literarv societv, which was established as long ago as lb 16, and has published many works. He is also an author and has written at least one valua ble book. The streets of Reykjavik are unpaved, but at certain comers, wide apart, stand lamp posts, whereon burn kerosene lamps to light the belated citizen to his door. One of the most characteristic of street signs is the long lines of ponies that almwr continually come and go, brining loads of dried nsh. and car rying hack the necessaries of li;'e: and almost all of Life's necessarv demands in Iceland must be supplied from without. Even the wood with which the houses are framed comes from Norway, and must be taken into the interior on the backs of horses. A fre quent sighr is a procession of ponies, each with a board on either side, fastened at one end to the pack saddie, while the other end is left to trail and bump along the uneven road. On pleasant mornings another kind of process "n is often seen. It is composed of women and girls, each with a wooden tub, and all going to the warm springs to do the household washing. Tiie water can he had at all temperatures, from boiling hot, where it bubbles up out of the earth, to tepid, fur ther down the little stream formed from the overflow. Dipping up a tubful of hot water, tho washerwoman puts her washing to soak, and then selects a convenient pla'-e upon the bank near the . cr' m;;l where- she kneels and rubs and wmi? piece bv piece.
