"My compliments to Mr. lyart. and 1 hope he will din with me to-nisht," she says, calmly, but with an unconscious touch of hauteur. How l he dare to treat hr like this, to persist in believing or rataer, to pretend to beliere that his presence i m dirta-iteful to her?

It will be the simplest thing to let hiru see how utterly unimportant an item he is in the scheme of her exist enc. There is a brilliant light in her 7 as siie turns to receive the woman who has now come back with aa answer to her nissajre to I'ysart. There is a timidity in the woman"j air that warns her. "Mr. iJysart's compliments and thanks, madame, but he has already dined in town." "Fasten this bracelet." says Vera, hold ing out h-r ami.

"Yes, madame, but that accident yes terday you will rtmember it? they say It has disabled six of the men, and it is almost certain death to go at all, and the hands being short, there must be volun teers, and who will risk their lives " the towubred girl stops short with a quiver, and coveri her face with her hands.

"Gone'." says Vera, slowly, as if dazed, and then again, "gone!" A little convlu- ive ahiver ruas through her it is the final breaking up of any lingering de ceits, any last illusions, that (he may till have clung to. "OrdT the carriage," nhe saya. after a minute or two, during which mistresa and maiil have remained silent. This Hidden waking-up has been so far a shock that It has killed all immediate nervousness. She feela chilled, calmed, strengthened. The moon has in a measure conquered the clouds, and now shines out with a pale, watery luster, that rather adds to than takes from the weird wiidnesa of the night. The thunder still rattles orer head, and vivid Sashes light the black Bess. Here and there, as the carriage passes by the outskirts of the wood, these intermittent bursts of light show where a tree has been felled, or the road ripped up, or a small bridge carried bodily away by the force of the swollen cur rent underneath. All through the deadly crashing of the storm a booming sound may be beard at long interval. Half maddened by it. and by that other greater fear. Vera lis back in the carriage, pressing her fin gers row to her ears, now to her throb bing brow, that feeia aa if it were burst ing. Arrived at the entrance to the village, 1 drive of about a mile from Greycourt, he (tops the carriage, and opening the door springs to the ground. A tudden gust of wind passing by almost dashes her to the earth, but by a tinerhuman effort she defies it, and half blinded by the flashing lightning, and bewildered by the raging storm, she turns aside, and runs panting, struggling, down a lide pathway that she knows leads to the beach below. CHATTER XXIII. The wihl v-ne that nie't hr sight r:k terror to her hear.. The mad roaring -of the jt that, mountains hi.Ti. ru-h impetuously inland to dash taerr; e!-.-e to piec, against the granite ro' s: the cries of th women; the hoarse cj!- of the men; tae faming, restlevs torches ;ha fling a weird light npon the picture; all serve tn unnerve hr. And now a shout from the beach! A dark objrt being dragged forward, a valiant cher. p-raaps meant to reach those miseranie oul- hovering on death's brink, ar.d give courage to thir failing hearts; i: is the life-boat, and now A tall hgure has suddenly become prominent; he seems to tower above all those around him. He is evidently ad dressing them with passionate words, ami now he springs into the boat, and with receweti eloquence eems to compel thoe present to follow him. His voice, in its vehemence, rises even above the storm. Not that the stri' ken girl crouching with in the shelter of her rock needs tuat tes timony to know that it H he whom her soul loveth. Vera staggers to her fet and stares blindly into the semi-darkness. A hearty cry goes up from those crowded together oh the beach. The mists baTe cleared away from the moon, and sne can see as well as those eager watchers that the tiTe black spots that were upon the rig ging are no longer there. Taey haTe been successful, then, to far. They hare taken those fiTe half dead creatures into the blessed lifeboat. Surely, if the rescuers could go through such a sea in safety, they can return. A blessed relief comes to hr, so sharp ly. Vj unpreparedly, that she almost gives way beneath it. The good ship, indeed, is goDe! Where the black, indistinct mass ! stood a minute since, now all is bare there Ls but sea and sky, and the memory of it! Hut the lifeboat still lives. Every onward dash of the tempestuous waves drives the lifeboat the more sure ly into shelter, until at la-st it touches ground. A hundred eager hands are stretched out to prevent the returning ' wave from carrying it backward, some of the men. more adventurous than the rest, rush into the surging tide up to their waists and seize the boat and drag it for- , cibly into safety. I'ysart, springing to land, heir out the rescued men. now exhausted by fear and exposure one of them, indeed, has faint edbut there are kindly amis open to receive tnem and kindly voices to bid them wel. ome and to p raise the God of sea and land for their delivery from death this night. With a hurried wave of the hand he tu-n- abruptly away from the cheering crowd and the dancing torchlights, and nuke his v.-ay through tr.e heavy dark-ne-, toward the small pathway taat will load to the road above. Stumbling, un certain, ari'l feeling altogether exhaust!, he n-verti.eh-.-s hnd it, and puts out ht. hand to grope f,)r r,,, o t;lu; ij ta,,Wj stands at tae right side of u, where the ! teach commem es. ; "Good heavens, what Is this? He starts violently, and then hi.s ringers fast en with almost convulsive energy over the small cold hand that has been thrust into his. A sharp little cry breaks through the darkness, and then the cold hand Ls hurriedly withdrawn, and two arms are thrown round him. and ding to him with passionate vehemence. "It is you you! And you are safe! Oh, Sea ton! Oh, thank heaven, thank heaven!" Whose Toice is it? Not Vera's? Vera! and yet the clinging arms are warm, Ut. ing, and genuine; the sobbing roice Is real: a small dishereled head is very close to him very! What has happened? Ua he gone mad? He is ghastly pale, white as the death from which he has but just now so nar rowly escaped, and across his right tem ple there is a slight streak of blood, still wet. This adds to his pallor. Vera, see ing it, shudders violently, and involun tarily, almost unconsciously, lifts her hand, and presses her handkerchief to the wound. "Speak!" says he. and now the word is a command. It rings sharply. There is a very anguish of doubt is his tone, and his eyes, burning into hers, are so full of desperate question, that they ut terly unnerve her. The strain of the past terrible hours has been too severe, and now she sinks beneath it. She bursts into tears. "Oh. yes, yes, yes!" she cries, giving him thus vaguely the answer he require. In a moment his arms are round her, crushing her against his heart. To him those incoherent words are full of sweet est meaning. Yes. she loves him. Who shall tell the joy this knowledge brings him joy that is almost pain? "Darling, darling!" whispers he, softly. And then after a little while, "I am too happy. I do not know what to ay. I cannot speak." And then again, "May I kiss you?" He does not wait for permission, but presses his lips to hers dear lips, that kiss him back again, with honest, heart felt gladness. (The end.)

Warm clothing wili, of course, help to offset a low tempera ture, but it will not make you warm if there's some internal reason for the chil-line-s. Most people wear too much heavy and improper clothing in winter. Many swathe their throats when it's warm stockings they need. Clothing should be warm, but not extremely heavy, and the practically air-tight suitings often worn are an abomination. Under these the skin THE ART OF MAKING A LIVING. By touts P. Pout. It may seem queer that a man of my ability in making money should presume to tell you how to make a living. You might naturally conclude that Mr. Carnegie, who has amassed a fortune of unknown millions, or Mr. Schwab, who has risen to a position which pays a salary of $UtX).000 a year, would be more able to tell how one can make a living. Hut that supposition is not altogether true. The man who knows the theory of any practice cannot always carry out his ideas. Now, what is the present state of liv ing in this country? I ain not a pessi mist, but I must say that conditions are fearful. A young man who leaves col lege to-day to earn a living has a hard time of it. He has one chance in SO.- J,.MI to become 1'resident of the coun try aud about as good a chance to become rich. lie has a little better show of amassing a fortune, but the chances are few. It is all the time said that there is room at the top, aud so there is. The whole society has been divided into two classes the great class at the bottom and tae little class at the top. The ordinary man has no chance at all. It is only the extraordinary man who can get to the top. Ii" must have little regard for any thing save victory. Wages have fallen during the last thir ty years to an alarming degree. Thirty years ago a stenographer could get Sl. "'H.' a y..-ar readily; now he can get $20 a week with dilli rulry. In other lines of work it is the same story. The rich be come richer and the poor have their wages cut. In tile mining district in Pennsylvania the children, from Ij years of age, begin to pick dirt out of coal. Then they go into the mines and work until they nre old men at 4." years. Then they return to the s reens and pick dirt with the children of another generation until they die. Their life is void of all save work.
