What would ho do now ? Hand hor over to one of the bloody men there as a bride? Keep hor for himself? No, not this last. There was not a shadow or in terest in her in any of the . hard and very deep lines of that mnssivo and monk-like face. lie stopped still a moment and prayed. How new, strange, awful, wierd all this was In the dim twilight by the darkening lake of death ! Somo birds flow into camp from the hills. It was a strange thing, and the first time in a thousand years, that man had come to pitch tent in their resting place. The moon, reund-facod -and full, loaned out of heaven and looked straight down, closo down, calm and pitying, like the sorrowful face of a mm at prayer. Surely in a scene like tliis, now at last, after all this suffering, this suspenso surely, surely after prayer and baptism in the name of tho Most High God she would bo saved; s aved in body and in mind; saved in all her purity, and peace of mind, and love, and sympathy, and sad memories of her dear dead who lay buried out yonder in the lake in chains The horsemen stood wailing orders. Thoy had not tasted foodeor water all that time thoy waited there in the grass. These poor, deluded men believod they were listening to the voice of God. They were men who could not read their names. Never had Mahomet such blind, faith ful, devoted following as these bloody men hero waiting to do the work of death. It is notable that all false religions, all relig ions save the one religion of Christ, have had their corner-stone laid and cemented down in blood. They have been built up by ignorance and maintained in impurity. The giant missionary came forward up the bank, leading the girl by the hand. He was evidently worn and weak, but he was as full of mad zeal for his mad work as ever before. He again appealed for proselytes. No one came forward. Then his furrowed brow grew dark and revengeful. He beckoned for his followers to get ready. In a moment more they were ready to spring into tho saddle. In the mean time he had mo tioned to our party to lay in a keg of water, rouse up the resting cattle, yoke them and climb the hill on our journey west. Our party obeyed this last injunction with alacritv. They could hardly conceal their pleasure. Yet a night's persistent travel and a day's dreadful anxiety following on its heels are hardly calculactd to charge anyone with a superabundance of spirits. In a little time tho cattle were once more in lino under the yoke and standing with nose lifted to the hill before them. The horsemen held tightly to their horses, one foot in the stirrup. The poor horses pawed the ground in impatience to reach the water that gurgled and talked on as it glided to the sea in the full-faced moon. Suddenly some wolves howled from the hill a little way ud the stream, and in spite of all their tranquility the men were startled a little, and fell to jerking and fretting their impatient horses. They knew what those wolves meant. It was the smell of blood from the scene of murder on this Bame little stream only a few rods away. The memory of it was not a pleas ant one to these men. The wolves were too eloquent entirely. They annoyed the old mis sionary also, who stood still there holding the girl's hand, still hoping for one more convert possibly, before thGse Gentiles should leavo his presence and pass away in peace. Tho woive3 redoubled their cries ana came nearer each moment. This seemed to hasten matters. Turning his deep, hollow eyes to tne girl, and inclining his head a little for her to an swer, he asked her if she believed. The eirl hesitated, looked up, dropped lier dark, sad eyes, looked up again, and again tried to answer. . The suspense was terrible. Every one leaned forwards The very stars up in heaven stopped Itheir merry twinkle. Tlie moon leaned low and largo, anu loouect witu a puuuiu, byuijjbiuibius face down Into her sister's face upon earth. The man was angered at her hesitation. Ho asked her again and savagely. At last she whispered "Yes." What was our horror to hear him calmly, al most bitterly, answer : "Then God be praised ! You shall die in the Faith, my wife. And so we shall meet again."

Printed in the Reformer by Special Arrange ment tcith the Author. CHAPTEU V. THE OltAVES OF THK IiCAD SEA. The Book of Mormon is of prodigious size and unexampled silliness. One marvels that any one ever had the persistence to write down its endless round of repetitions of bibical words and phrases. Professing to give, in the stylo and language of the Bible, the history of the Tribes from tuo time of their disaffection till they possessed. America and became the mound-builders, it 13 simply intolerable as a piece ot artistic work. Yet as it was found in all mining-camps, where in the snowy fastness we often had nothing else left to read, it thus fell to my lot to read it through not unfre quently. Fi om title-page to colophon there is not one lofty or inspired or idspiring thought, like those filling the volume it affects to follow. A dreary, weary book it is. And yet it answers the Mormon's purpose in this : that where ho cannot find an excuse for his actions in the real Book, he can surely find it in the forged one. After this huge man with the book and the dtcp hollow eyes had exhorted and preached andnad for hours and hours, halting now and then as he read, devouring the whole camp and all that circle about him with his hungry eyes, the girl drawn even nearest of al and right under his eyes and right by the side other ignorant exhortation begsred to baptize his listeners in the faith of the Latter-Day Saints. No one answered or moved. Many a long breath was drawn, many a deep sigh was smothered, but no one spoke! The missionary, as he announced himself, looked straight and hard and earnestly at the girl. She lifted her weary black eyes to his once more, and tried hard to read if there was any help or any hope at all in them. But she did not speak. The man arose, went down to the bank, drank a cupful of water, came back and began to read and exhort and explain and endeavor to pro selyte once more. And so this strange man kept on till the day was spent. No one had spoken save himself. No ono had tasted food. Some of the children had slept, their heads in their weary mothers' laps, as they sat in cirrlo aud listened and listened in silence, that long, long day, nndcr the vast blue sky, by the dark and desolate lake of death. And now mark ! When that man was done reading and the sun was going down, there was not a weary and overcome man or woman thee who was not aired or terrified or fascii...ted into some sort of half belief ! Again the man arose np and pleaded for con verts to his singular faith. Ho stretched his hands over the darkening lake as the sun went down; he lifted bis long arms V the mountains of snow iieyond the young city ; he appealed to nothing low, to nothing bad, but to much that was noble in man and sublime in nature. His lips were dry, his eyes were deep and hollow and wild, but be kept on until the sun bad fall en behind the steep hill that rwe in onr road before ns. Surely the man was mad. And yet as typical, as true a Mormon elder was he, as photograph would print. He made a hwt appeal to the weak and now prostrate girl. Some one of the party, wiser than the mt per haps, beckoned her to compiy. I She put out her two hands helplessly, and he I CHAPTER VI. BlltlED IN THE LAKE. The Danlto leader now beckoned our party to move on, bidding ns leave the heaviest log chain behind. The horsemen merely glanced at each other. They knew what was to be done, and swung into tho saddle as one man. No Cromwell ever had troopers obedient as were these ignorant and desperate followers of the false religion in America. If you who have this question to settle, soon er or later, will only stop to consider a moment, you will observe that all such monstrosities that poor human nature has brought forth on the earth have two elements for their establishment: ono, the father of them, a learned man, a su perficially learned man, a "crank;" and the other element, a densely ignorant mass of man kind to sow his doctrines among, to mature and maintain them when they tako root. And these two elements are never wanting in re cruits. Thoy never will lie while ignorance is so general upon the earth. Of course you can not destroy the leaders, the "cranks," men crazy over their books and about religion. But you can utterly destroy their following. Plough up the field, cultivate, it, and the tares will per ish in time. This is the remedy. Cultivation, intelligence, education, association with others, have already done much, broken off the hard corners oi this rock in the sea. But let igno ranee prevail there as it did thirty years ago, and you will see renewed all the ferocity, cruelty and crime in tho mime of the new religion which we knew then. Destroy these people by war ! No, you can not destroy them by war, even though you pour in a million of men with guns and all the treasure of this universe. Yon might kill them every one and confiscate their homes. And yet in Europe anywhere, everywhere where there is ignorance to follow and fanaticism to lead you might see a Mormon church. Our train moved on. The horsemen galloped alongside for a littio way after having had some silent orders from their giant and iron-hearted leader. Then they rode back. Then they gal loped tip the hill alongside again, and so re mained until we had reached the top of the steep hill. Here we were ordered to stop and wait, till we were permitted again to move on. No one had spoken to the girl to say good-by. Hope had been kindled in her heart. She had even taken a step forward to fall in with the moving train and follow us as wc started. A heavy hand fell on her shoulder. She lifted her eyes to the missionary's, let them fall, and stopped as still as the dead. When we turned about in the full white moonlight on the hill, and looked after the horsemen while the- dashed down the hill in a cloud of dust, we could see but dimly. Bu t a man who professed to see clearly, said the giant was leading the girl down toward bis own camp, and the ugly collin hiding away there in the shadows One of the horsemen rode down to the mouth of the little stream whtre it fell into the lake, and drew a boat that was hidden there up into a little cove formed by the waters of the brook. We could not see the girl now. What was be ing done ? As said before, we could sec but indistinctly now. By and by some one saw the monstrous giant once more pushing his long black box be fore him down toward the lake, and pointed out the dark object to others. The horsemen rode some distance leisurely behind, with their hats in their han;ls. The gill still could not lie seen. At length a dreadful suspicion crept over us, and a crv burst from one of the women. She wrung her hands and cried hysterically that the girl was in the collin and illcy were going to bnrv her in the lake. The woman was silenced with effort, and all stood still as death, waiting, waiting. The moon sacmed only a little way above us, only a little higher on the till, and oh, so pale and pitiful and sorrowing she seemed! The far white mountain, of snow shone like silver in this whitest and brightest of silver moons this eide of Arabia. Whr were we compelled to stand here and see all this ? Surc!v t.hey meant to murder this girl and make n witness it, in order to spread terror and the fear of their tower to "judge" and to execute jnihrment thronh the hind. Hero was a murder to which tho murderers de mantled witnesses and compelled the presonco of witnesses. But still, as I said before, we could seo but dimly. Tho moon was sinking fast now. How slow and doliherato they wore ! The barrow evidently had a heavier luad than ever before. The heavy chain and the chained girl?! It moved heavily, slowly, through the great whlto girdle of gleaming salt ; slowly and sudly, like a funeral march. At last it touched the odgo of tho dark wators All was still, as Bllont ns death. It soemed that some one of those men two of them, throoofthem, all o'. thorn must disobey this giant and monster, kill him if nocessary. and savo this beautiful girl. Even if they had no senso of chivalry or virtue or valor In them to help tho helpless, it did seem as if some ono, any one, all, might do almost anything to pro tect her, save her. Two men rode up, dismounted, held their horses bv tho Ions tethers as they stood there frotful and kneo-deep in the gleaming girdle of salt, and so nastily lilted tno long uiacK comn into tno ooat. Tho ciant solemnly and silently took his place at the oar and began to move slowly and certainly toward tne uarK anu ucsoiato rocK m the deous of the lake. The horsomen remounted, drew back, hats in hand, and so sat with the others looking out at the colossal and silent boatman with his singu lar freight. Was he rowing to reach tins rocic where the corpse had been seen loaded down with chains ? Wonld he not go on, on, on, any where, and escape these brutal and tinna rouow ers, who believed him a saint engaged in main taining the Church or Jesus uurisi i But these men did not doubt for a moment. They sat their horses in a crescent about the head of the lake and looked on tranquil, silent, reverential, waiting with certainty the signal of death. Never fell there such a silence. Never was there such a murder as this. Far away above the gleaming towers of snow the. stars stood trembling. The moon becan to hasten away and slide swiftly down in tho west behind the hill ou which we stood, as if terrified and refus ing to be a witness. The man saw that the moon was going away, and he dipped his oars with rapid and heavy stroke. The water 6kone. sparkled, flashed in the moon. The oars dug into the heavy water as if dipping into a sea ot molteu silver. - The lioat struck the rock 1 You could hear it grate and grind, all was so still. The giant stood up In the boat a second, then with his broad right hnnd slowly drew back tho coverinir and looked down as if into a face in tho coffin. He was so tall, his form seemed like a tree, ire cast a black and frightful shadow far out over tho saa of silver in the fading moonlight. The mounted Danites loom ed np in the mirage larger than heroic statues. At last the colossal figure in the boat leaned over, caught up something long and heavy from the coffin, 6tood up tall and terrible with it pois ed in the air, high abovo his head in his two mighty hands. He poised it there a moment, dallied with it, heaved his great heavy should ers, arched his long strong back, surged to and fro in tho failing silvery moonlight, and then with vehement force threw it forward into tho dcplhs of the dark water with all the tremendous power that was In him. The waters dashed up. cleamed like a sun rise, closed over, and all was still again in the heart ot the great dark waters of death. A hand was lifted to us from the nearest horseman, and wo passed on over tho hill right in the face of the great round moon now set tling down to rest in the far-off Sierras, and I never saw the place again for twenty years or more. And when I did return I came from London to write up the trial of Brigham Young, who was men ueing iricu ior nisine ior complicity in murders liko this. Bv cood fortune I found an old friend of mine was then governor of the territory. We searched this spot for the skeletons ; but, as be fore . tho lake had so filled that, while wo found the buried rock and little island, we found noth ing more. I told a Mormon elder this story, and he earnestly assured me that all we had seen of the end was the mirage a delusion; that the mis sionary did not drow the cirl, but had taken tliis course to save her from the Danites ; that he had left the girl in the willows, to tall in with the next train that came by, while he had thrown only his bag of bread or something of that sort with the chain abaut it into the black waters of the great lake. Let us hopo so at least. A DAUGIITISK'S LOYE. A daughter's love what symbol rare Can with its preciousness compare ? 'Tls like the clinging oglantiue, Whose odoroiw summer wreaths entwine An ancient oac tree, guarlcd and bare. Or when, with waving blossoms fair, The wild rose scents the morning air, I welcome, in the fragrance fine, A daughter's love. 'Tls like the cluster of the vine, Which warm the heart with purple wine, Soothing the furrowed brow of care ; 'Tis like all sweet things everywhere, AVhich can but hint when they combine . A daughter's love. Richard Wilton. "W1IKRK I LOVE, I Z.OVIS FOREVEK," She was a blithesome maid who sang, Close by the cottage window sitting ; Sweet and clear were the" notes that rang Out on the air where tho birds were Hitting; Merrilv, merrily sang the birds, But none could exactly guess their words, While the maid so clever, And blushing never, Sang, "Where I love, I love forever!" He was a youth just passing by While tlie ma'd was singing, oh, so sweetly ! Who to the garden gate drew nigh And listened there, entranced completely ; For the sound of a voice so sweet and clear Was rapturous music to his ear, And he said, "Ah, never AVould I wish to sever From one who loves, and loves forever !" The maiden smiled on her lover's suit, When at her feet he made confession ; Her eyes were bright, but her voice was mute, When she gave her heart into his possession. But now together their lives are set, They sing in unison tltis duet : "We'll dissever Never never ! For where we love, wo love forever!" SPARltOWS OS THE TELEGKAPJI WIRES. Little birds sit on tho telegraph wires, And twitter and flutter, and fold their winsrs. May be they think that for them and their sires Stretched always, on purpose, those wonder ful strings, And perhaps the thought that the world inspir es Did plan for the birds anions other things. . Little birds sit on tho slender lines, Andthencirs of tho world runs under their feet, How value rises, and now declines, How kings with their armies in battle meet ; And all the"white, 'mid the soundless signs, They chirp their small gossipings, foolish sweet. Little things light on the Hues of our lives Hopes aiid jovs and acts of to-day ; And we think that for these the Lord contrives, Nor catch what the hidden lightnings say, Yet from end to end his meaning arrives, And his word runs underneath all the way. Is Iifeonlv wires and lightnings, then, Apart of that which about it clings ? Are the thoughts and the works and the pray ers of men Only sparrows that light on God's telegraph strinss, Holding a moment, and gone again ? Nay, he planned for the birds with the large " things.
