THE I J AST CONTEST. A soldier, who had won imperisha ble fanni on tho battlo-iiolds of his country was confronted bj a gaunt stranger elad all iu black aud wcariug an impenetrable mask. "Who aro you that you dare to block my way?" dumamlod tho sol dier. Then tho stranger throw asido bis mask and tho soldier know that ho was Death. 'dlavo you como for me?" asked tho soldier. "If so, I will not go with you; so go your way alone." But Death hold out bia bony baud and beckoned lo tho soldier. "No," cried tho soldier, resolutely; "my limo is not como. Soo, boro aro the histories I am writing-no hand but mino can finish thom-I will go when they are dono." "I have biddon by your sido day and night," said Death; "I havo hovered about you on a hundred battle-fields, but no sight of mo could chill your heart till now, and now I hold you in my power. Come!" And with thuso words Death soi/.od upon tho soldier and strove to boar him heuce. but tho soldier struggled so desperately that ho prevailed against Death, and tho strango phantom do purlod alone. Then when ho had geno thu soldier found upon his throat tho imprint of Death's cruel lingers-so iierco had boon tho struggle. And nothing could wash them away, for they were disease, lingering, agonizing, fatal disease. Hut with quiet valor ibo soldier relurnod to his histories, and for many days thoroaftor ho toiled up on them as tho last and best work of his nobln life. .dlow thin and palo tho soldior is gelling," said tho people. "His hair is whitening and his oyes uro woary. Ile should not have undertaken tho histories-the labor is killing him." They did not know of this strugglo with Death, nor had they soon tho marks upon the soldier's throat, lint the physicians who carno to him and saw tho marks of Death's cruel lingers, shook llicir heads and said the soldier OOldd not livo to completo his work upon which Iiis whole heart was set. And tho soldier knew it, too, and many a timo he paused in his writing and laid his pun aside and bowod his head inion his hands, and strove for consolation in the thought of tho groat fame he had already won. So whoa Death carno a second time ho found the soldier weak and trembling and emaciated. ..lt would bo vain for you to strug gle with me now," said Don th. "My poison is in your veins, ami seo, my dew is on your brow. Hut you aro a bravo man and 1 will not bear you with mo till yon have asked ono iavor,which 1 will grunt." "(Jive mu au hour to ask thc favor," said the soldier. "There aro so many things my histories and nil-givo mo an hoar that I ntay decide what I shall ask?" Aud as Doath tarried, tim soldier communed willi himself. Before ho closed his eyes forever what boon should ho ask of Death? And tho sol dier's thoughts spoil back over tho yoars and his whole lifo carno to him liko a lightning llash--the companionship and smiles of kings, tho glorios of govern ment and political powor. tho honors of poaco, ami joys o? contpiost, tho din of batllo, the sweets of a quiot homo lifo upon a western prairio, tho gontlo devotion of a wife, tho clamor of noisy boys ami tho fuco o? a Jittlo girl-ah, there his thoughts lingered and clung, j "Time to comploto our work-our books-our histories," counsolod am bition. "Ask Death for timo to do this last and crowning act of our great life." Hut tho soldior's oars were doaf to tho crioi of ambition; thoy heard nnolh- ! or voice-tho voico of tho soldier's hoart-and tho voice whispered "Nollie -Nollio-Nellie" That was all-no other words but those, and tho soldier struggled to his foot, and strotched forth his hands and called to Doath, and hoaring him caMIng, Death caine to him aud stood before him. "I havo niado my choico," said tho soldier. "Tho books?" asked Doath with a scornful smile. "No, not thom," said tho soldior, "but my little girl-my Nolllol Oivo mo a loase of lifo till I hnvo hold her in thoso arris, and thon como for me and 1 will gol" Thou Death's hldoous aspect was changed; his storn features relaxed and a look of pity oamo upon them. And Donih said, "It shall bo so," and say ing this he wont his way. Now thagroldior's child was far away .-many, many leaguos from where tho soldier Jived; boyo?.il a broad, tempest uous ocean. 8ho was not os you might ?uopoao, a little child, although the soldier apoko of her aa such, fino was a wlfo and a mother; yot even in her womanhood she was to the soldior's hoart tho samo little girl tho soldior hail hold upon his knee maliy and many a time while his rough hands weaved prairio llowor* in her soft, fair nurla. And tho soldior nulled for Nollie now, just a? i<* did then, when she sat on his knee and prattled of her dolls. Tbl? is ?he way ot the turnan heart it having U?U ?C-??ed *bc?? that the Bolilior was dying urn! tiiut Nollio had bcon scut for across tito sun, all tho pcoplo viod with ouch other iu sooth ing tho hutt moments of tho faiUOUS mun, for ho was beloved by all, and all woro bound to him by bonds of patri otic gratitudo, slnco bo had boen so bravo a soldier upon thu battle-Holds of Iiis country, lint tito soldior did not hood thoir words of sympathy; tho voico of fame, which in tho past had stirred a fovor in his blood and fallen most pleasantly upon his oars, awaken ed uo cniot ?on iu lus bosom now. Tho soldier thought only of Nellie, aud ho awaited her coming. An old Colnrade carno and pressed lus nano, ana laiwea ui ute unios ?vuvti thoy wont to tho wars together; and tho old comrade told of this hattie and of that, mid hew such ti victory was won and how such a city was taken. But tho soldier's oars heard no sound of battle now, and his oyes could seo DO flash of sabre or smoko of war. ?So tho people carno and spoke words of veneration and lovo and hope, and so with quiet fortitude, btu willi a hun gry heart, tho soldier waited tor Nellie, his little girl. Sho carno across tho broad, to.opcst uous ocean. The gulls Hew far out from land and tobi thu windi, and the Winds blew further still and said lo the ship: "Speed on, oh ship! speed on in thy swift, straight course, for you are bearing a treasuro to a father's hoart!" Thou tho ship leaped forward in her pathway, and tho waves were very ?till, and tho winda kepi wiiLporing: "Spocd on, ? ship," till tit last thu ship was como to port and the littlo girl was claspod in thu soldier's arms.. Thou for a season tho soldier seemed quito himself again, and peoplu said: "Ho will livo," and thou prayed that ho might. But their hopes and pray ers woro vain. Death's seal was on tho soldier and thcro was no release. Tho last days of thu soldier's lifu woro tho most beautiful of all-but what a mockery of ambition and fame, and all tho grand pretentious things of lifo they were! Thoy were tho triumph of a human heart, and what is botter or purer or sweeter than that? No thought of tho hundred battle fields upon which his valor had .shown conspicuous carno to tho soldier now - nor tho ocho of his otornal fame-nor o von yet tho murmurs of a sorrowing people. Nollie was by his side, and his hungry, fainting heart fed on her dear love aud his soul went back with bol to tho years bing agonc. Away beyond tho wostorn horizon upon tho prairie stands a little homo over which tho vines trail. All about it is tho tall, waving grass, and over yondor is tho swalo with a logion of chattering black-birds porched on its swaying roods and rushes. bright wild Howers bloom on overy side, tho quail whistlos on tho pasture fence, and from his home in (ho chimney corner tho cricket begins to chirrup au echo to tho lonely bird's call. In this little Eraine homo wo soo a man holding on is kneo a little, girl, who is telling him of her play as ho smooths hor fair curls or strokes her tiny velvet hands; or perhaps she is singing him ouc of her baby songs, or asking him strange questions of tho groat wide world that is now to her; or perhaps ho binds the wild llowors sho has brought into a lit tlo nosogay for her now gingham dross, or-but wo seo it all, and so, too, does tho soldior, and so does Nollio, and so thoy hoar tho black-bird's twittor and the quail's shrill call and tho cricket's faint ocho, ti"d all about thom is tho ..?weet subtlo, holy ?ra;-rance of mem ory. And so at last whon Death carno and tho soldier foll asleep forever. Nollie, his little girl, was holding his hands and whispering to him of thoso days. Hors woro tho last words he hoard, and by tho smile that rostod on his faco whoa ho was dead you might havo thought tho soldior was dreaming of a limy when Nollio prattled on his kuco and bado him woavo tho wild Howers in her curls. How PlyloR V\?h Ply. An excellent opportunity of observ ing tho aerial means of propulsion in the Hying fish was a horded mo during a six days' oalm lately whon crossing tho Bay of Bongnl. I watched day by day nomo bund reds rise under tho bows of tho ship. The water surface was a glassy calm. As oach tish roso it spread its wings at onco, apparent i v boating the surfaco with thom two or fhroo strokes boforo thoy steadied out. I say apparently, for it was not a deb ilito boat so much as a struggle to rise. The tall which, of courso under wator was in rapid motion to escapo from the ship, now gavo ton or a dozen rapid beats, whioh could bo countod by tho ripples on tho still surface, and tho tish was off in aerial flight. As oaoh fish lost tho hnpotus of tho first riso, which generally happened at about forty yards, tho binoculars show ed us the anal fins, which had till now beon fully extended, drooping to feel tho wator. As soon aa tho surface was felt the tail was introduced and fivo or six smart strokes, also indicated by ripplos, brought tho impetus np again and carried the fish about anothor thirty yards, when another drop sont it on again, and so forth, aorao of tho older fish travoling in this way 400 to 600 yards. Tho younger fish fre.quont ly fell awkwardly In this attempt to regain impetus. Whon waves aro running it requires a clover tish to gain impetus by a few judicious strokes on the orest of a wave, and many a fish tumbles over In tho attempt. I once saw a fish rise oloso to the ship's quarter, and lt flow parallel with the ship, pursued below by a dolphin or bonita.

For instance, they will actually try to spoil each other's salo-'. Thoy can not bo made to soo that whatever helps one bolus tho market," "How eau thoy spoil each other's Bales?" "Ill many ways. I'll give you an in stance, and will take a caso that hap pened a good many years ago, so that no ono's feelings shall bo hurt. I had for a customer a wealthy gentleman, and had just, about persuaded him to buy a roally good landscape, by a lead ing artist; price, $700. In fact, tho gentleman had virtually bought tho picture. Ho was just beginning to speak about making a payment whe.i an artist, a mutual acquaintance, strolled into tho room. Now tho gen tleman wanted confirmation of his judgment, as people ofton do, and so appealed to tho artist coming in, and asked his opinion of tho purchase. Tho artist fell a twinge of jealousy. Ho balanced himself first on hie heels and thou on his toes, m ado opera-glasses out of his hands, and squinted, at thc picturo from ovcry possible point of . view. Finally ho spoke, 'll is a line picture. It is well conceived, drawing first rate, admirable color. I like tho trees, tho sky, tho water. In fact, it's au excellent work of art. Still, if you roally want my opinion, I'll tell you something. You sou thal small figure in tho distance-tho figure of a man lishing? Well, if you will take the trouble to timi thu seale of measure ment, you will discover that the man's fishing-polo is certainly over fifteen feet long!' "When I heard that I knew in a minute that my bargain was otb Tho gentleman buying tho picture ?lid not rely onougli upon his own judgment, and besides 1 had had experience. Tho artist criticising tho picturo appeared lo bo fair and .square. Ho had roally given tho work Its due praise, to begin with. Hut ho had got his deadly work in after all. Thal splendid work of art was spoiled tor thal pun ?: i .t r by a little brush stroke inlonded to repre sent a lisiilug-pole. The gentleman never looked al il again that il did nol seem lo him lo bo all tishing-polo, and ho tinnily told ino tho fishing-polo bad made the picture odious lo lum, and ho would not buy it. " "And you say that artists often do that sort of I li i II ^ ?" ' "Yes, they've spode.I a good many sales for each other, in my experience. Hut, mind you, 1 don't say that they have any malicious intention or always realize what they aro doing. ll is tho easiest thing in the world lo discover some little, trilling, good fur nothing defect that will turn a person against a picture." ' Hut suppose a purchaser is put out of conceit with Smith's picture, doesn't that mako him all the more likely to turn around and try one of Hrown's?" "No, il does not. And that is why 1 say artists are short-sighted. In my experlonco, if a man buys a picture and is happy and sat is nod over his purchase hu is more than likely to turn around and buy moro pictures. Tho appetite grows on him. Hut if ho is checked and made lo mel dissatislied with Ids own taste and his own judg ment just as Ito is about lo bu) ti pict uro ho is thrown bael; oil hitnsolf, grows disgusted, and turns his back on tho wholo business."

"Well, if you ask mo that question, I shall have lo tel you that hero again tho artists aro at ftA.it. In dull times the artists go along slowly and care fully. They growl a good deal, but do protiy good work. Lot tho market im prove over so little and thoy got per fectly wild and turn out pictures by tho do/.on.
