Hut in another vn tho day fld wlib awful wlftnpw, for to were burrrlut u both, my iiiotbor and ui. to a great gulf which would oon, far too un, li Mwweu u. Kverjr afternoon Julia cam to spend an hour or two with my mother; tut her arrival wa always formally announced, and It wa an underatooJ thine that 1 ahould liiimeIUtly quit the room, to avoid mevtiiiK bor. There wae an tl onette In hvr rpsmtuit-nt which I wae bound to otmerr. I had not taken up any of nty old pa tient acaln, for I wa detennlued that verybody ahould fetd that my mlih-nc at bom wa only temporary. Hut about ten day after my return the following note wa brought to me, directed In full to Ir. Martin Dobre: "A lady from England, who I only a tleltor in Guerneey, will be much oblig ed by Dr. Martin Dobreo raiting upon her at Itoae Villa, Vaurert Road, fthtt la iiifforlnt from a alight MUpoaitlon; and knowing Dr. Bculor by nam and reputation, alu would fel great coiifl dene in the a ..II of Dr. Renlnr'a friend." I wondi'rwl for an lustaot who the atranger could b, and bow aiie knew the Bonlor; but aa ther could be no an awer to then querie without vieltlng th lady, I reaolved to go. Itoa Villa waa a home where the room were let to Tleltor during the eon, and th Vau vert Iload was a-arrely fit minute' walk from our bou. Julia wa paying ber dally viilt to my mother, and I wa at a to for ometblng to do, o I went at one. 1 found a very handsome, floe-looking woman; dark, with balr and eyre a black aa a gypay'e, and a clfir olive complexion to match. Her forehead waa low, but smooth and well shaped; and the lower part of ber face, handsome a It was, waa far more developed than th upper. There wa not a trac of refinement about ber feature; yet th coarscne of them wa but slightly apparent a yet. My new patient did not inspire me with much sympathy; but she attracted my curiosity, and interested me by the bold style of her beauty. "You (iuerusey people ar Tery at I IT with strangers," she remarked, aa 1 est opposite to her, regarding her with that clomt observation which 1 permitted to a doctor. 'Ho th world saya." I answered. "Of coume I sm no good judgo, for w Guern sey people believe ourselves a perfect a any class of the human family." "I hare been here a week," ah replied, pouting her full crimson lips, "and have not had a chance of speaking a wont, ex cept to atranger like mysolf who don't know a soul." That, then, waa the caus of th little Indisposition which had obtained mo the honor of attending her. I Indulged my suit in a mild sarcasm to that effect, but It waa lost upon her. She gated at in solemnly with her large black eyes, which ahou Ilk beads. "! am really ill," she aald, "but It haa nothing to do with not seeing anybody, though that'a dull. There's nothing for me to do but take a bath in the moruing and a drlv In the afternoon, and go to bed very early. Good gracioua! it'a enough to drive m mad!" "Try Jersey," I suggested. I "No, I'll not try Jersey," she said. "I mean to innk my way here. Don't you know anybody, doctor, that would take pity on a poor atranger? "I am aorry to aay no," I answered. Nhe frowned at that and looked disap pointed. I wa about to ask her how she knew tho Senior, when she spoke again. 1 "Do you have many visitors come to Guernsey Iste in the autumn, as late as October?" ah Inquired. "Not many," I answered; " a few may arrive who Intend to winter here." I "A dear young friend of mine camo' her last autumn," she aald, "aioue, aa ' I am, and I ve been wondering ever alnce l'v been her however she would get along amongst such a set of stiff, formal, tand-offlsh folka. She had not money enough for a dash, or that would make a difference, I suppose." "Not th least," I replied, "if your friend cam without any introduction." "What a dreary winter ahe'd have!" pursued my patient, with a tone of cxul ' tatlon. "Sli waa quite young, and a pretty a picture. All the young men would know her, I'll be bound, and you amongst them, Dr. Martin. Any woman who isn't a fright geta stared at enough to be known again." Could tbla woman know anything of Olivia? I looked at her more earnestly and critically. She waa not a persou 1 ahould Ilk Olivia to hav anything to do with. A coarse, ill-bred, bold woman, whose eyea met mine unabashed, and did not blink, under my scrutiny. Could she be Olivia'a step mother, , who had been the ruin of her life? "I'd bet a huudred to one you know her," she said, laughing and showing all her white teeth. "A girt like her couldn't go about a little poky place like this with out all the young men knowing her. Per haps she left the island in the spring. I have asked at all the drapers' ahops, but nobody recollect her. I've very good , new for her If I could find her a slim, middle-sized girl, with a clear, fair skin and grey eyea and hair of a bright brown. Stay, I can show you her photo graph." " She put Into my bauds an exquisite portrait of Olivia, taken in . Florence There waa an expression of quiet mourn fulness In th face, which touched ma to the cor of my heart. I could not put It down and speak Indifferently about it. My heart beat wildly, and I felt tempted to run off with the treasure and return no more to this woman, i "Ah! you recognize her!" ah exclaim d triumphantly. "I never saw such a person in Guern sey," I answered, looking steadily Into ber face. A sullen and gloomy expres sion came across it, and she snatched the portrait out of my hand. "You want to keep It ecret," she Stretton sid, "but I defy you to do It I am coin her to find ber, and And br I will Bb nasn t drowned brlf, and th aarth bn't swallowed hr up. I'v tracd hr aa far aa br. and that I tll you. She crossed In Lb Southampton boat on dreadfully atormy night last October in only lady passenger and tb tttw ardvsa recollect ber wU. 8h landed ber. You must know something about ber." "I assur you I nerr ssw that girl new," I replied Tsslvely. "What In quirle hav you mad after hr?" "I'v inquired her and thr and v erywber," h aald.

If you could help m to And hr you would do ber family a Try grat ervice." "Why do you fix upon m?" I Inquired. "Why did you not aeud for on of th resident doctors? I left Guernsey om time go." "You wer her last winter," ah aid, "and yon'r a young man, and would no lle ber mor.", ''Thrr ar other young doctors In Guernsey," I remarked. "Ah, but you'v been In London," sh answred, "and I know aomethiug of Dr. Heulor. When you ar In a strange place you catch at any chance of an acquaint ance." "Come, be candid with me," I aald. "Did not Messrs. Scott and Drown end you bore?" The cuddenne of my question took ber off ber guard and startled ber. She hesi tated, stammered, and finally denied It with more than natural emphasis. "I could take my oath I don't know any such . person," ah answered. "I don't know who you mean, or what yon mean. All I want I quit honest. Ther I fortune waiting for that poor girl, and I want to take ber back to those who tor her, and ar rady to forgive and forget everything. I feel sure you know something of ber. But nobody except me and ber other friend have anything to do with It." "Well," I ald, rising to take my leave, "all the Information I can giv you I that I never aaw such a peraon Jier, either last winter or since. It 1 quite possible sh went on to Jersey, or to Granville, when th storm waa over. That she did not atay In Guernsey I am quit sur." I went away in a fever of anxiety, lhe woman, who waa certaiuly not a lady, had Inspired me with a repuguance that I could not describe. Surely this person could not be related to Olivia! I tried to guesa in what relationship to her ahe could poHxIhly stand. I felt more chafed than I had ever don about Olivia'a ae cret. I tried to satisfy myself with the reflection that I had put Tardif on hla guard, and that b would protect her. But that did not set my mind at ease. I never knew a mother yet who believed that any other woman could nurse her sick child as well aa heraelf ; and I could not be persuaded that even Tardif would shield Olivia from danger and trouble aa I could, if I wer only allowed the privilege. Yet my promise to Julia bound me to hold no communication with her. I had strolled down some of the quieter streets of the town whilst I was turning this affair over in my mind, and now aa I crossed the end of th Hue Haute, I caught sight of Kate Daltrey turning Into a milliner' shop. Ther waa every reasonable probability that ahe would not come out agalu soon, for I saw a bon net reached out of tho window. If she were gono to buy a bonnet she was safe for half an hour, and Julia would be alone. I had felt a atrong desire to ace Julia ever since I returned home. My mind was mail up on the spot. If I found her iu a gentle mood ah would release me from the promise she had ex torted from me when she waa in tho first heat of her anger and disappoint ment. It was a chance worth trying. If I wer free to declare to Olivia my love for her, I should establish a claim upon her full confidence, and we could laugh at further difficulties. She was of age, and therefor mistress of herself. Her friendB, represented by this odious wom an, could have no legal authority over her . I turned shortly up a side street and walked as fast as I could towards the house which was to have been our home. lty a bold stroke I might reach Julia's presence. I rang, and the maid who an swered the bell opened wide eyes of as tonishment at seeing me there. I passed by quickly. - "I wish to speak to Miss Dobree," I said. "Is she in the drawing room?" "Yes, sir," she answered, in a hesitat ing tone. I waited for nothing more, but knock ed at the drawing' room door for myself, and heard Julia call, "Gome in." CIIArTER XIV. Julia looked very much the same as she had done that evening when I came ro lnctantly to tell her that my heart was not In her keeping, but belonged to an other, She wore the sam kind of fresh, light muslin dreas, with ribbons and lace about it, and she sat near the window, with a piece of needlework In her hands; yet she was not sewing, and her hands lay listlessly on her lap. A mingled feel ing of sorrow, pity and shame prevented me from advancing into the room. She looked up to see who was standing in the doorway, and my appearance there evi dently alarmed and distressed her. "Martin!" she cried. ; "May I come in and speak to you, Ju lia?" I asked. "Ia my aunt worse?" she inquired hur riedly. "Are you come to f etcb me to her?" "No, no, Julia," I said; "my mother ia as well as usual, I hope. But surely you will let me apeak to you after all this time?" "It ia not a long time," she answered, "lias it not been long to you?" I asked "It mciiii year to m, All life ha changed for ine. I had no Idea then of my mother' Illness." ."Nor I," she said, sighing deeply. "If I bad known it," I continued, "all this might not hav happened. Surely th trouble I shall bar to bear moat plead with you for met" "Yes, Martin," sh answered; "jt 1 am ry orry for you." Sh cam forward and offered m ber band but without looking Into my face. I ssw that ah bad been crying, for ber eys war rd. In ton of formal po liteness ah askd m If I would not sit down. I considered It best to remain standing, aa an Intimation that I ahould not trouble htr with my prenc for long. I had no tun to lose, lest Kat Daltrey should com in, and It wa a vary difficult subject to approach. ."W wr talking of yon to-day." ah aaid at length, In a hurried and thick vole. "Auot 1 In great sorrow about you. It prey upon her day and night that yon will b dreadfully alon when ah I gon, and and Martin, ah wlab to know bfor sh die that th girl in Bark will bcom your wlf. Tb word (truck Ilk a shot upon my ar and brain. What! bad Julia and my mother been arranging between them my Happiness and Olivia'a aafety that very afternoon ' Such generosity was Incred ible. I could not believ I bad beard aright. . "Sh ha seen tb sirl" continued Julia, In th sam husky ton, "and sh is convinced sh I uo adventuress. Jo hanna aays th same. They tell m It is unreasonable and aelfisb In ro to doom you to th dreadful loneliness I feel. If Aunt Dobre asked m to pluck out my right eye Just now, I could" not refuse. It I something Ilk that, but I bar promised to do it. I release you from every promise you ever mad to me, Mar tin." "Julia!" I cried, crossing tj her and bending over ber with mor love and admiration than I had ever felt before; "thl is very noble, very generous." "No," sh said, bursting Into tears; "I am neither nobl nor generous. I do It bee use I cannot help myself, with aunt'a whit face looking so Imploringly at me. I do not glv you up willingly to that elrl In 8ark. I bop I ahall never ae her or you for many, many year. Aunt says you will have no rhanc of marrying her till you are aettled in a practice some where; but you ar free to ask her to be your wife. Aunt wants you to have somebody to lor yon and car for you after ah la gone, aa I ahould bave done." "But you are generous to consent to it," I aaid again. 'No," ahe answered, wiping her eyea and lifting up her bead; "I thought I waa generous; I thought I wss a Christian, but It Is not essy to be a Chriatlan when one ia mor titled, and humbled, and wounded. I am a great disappointment to myself; quit aa great aa you are to ro. I fancied myaelf very superior to what I am. I hope you may not be dis appointed inihalgirl ln Sark." , , Her hand waa lying on her lap, and 1 stooped down and kissed it. seeing on it still the ring I bad given ber when we were first engsged. She did not look at in or bid me good-bye, and I went out of th house, my veins tingling with shame and gladness. I met Captain Carey coming up the street, with a basket of fin grapes in bis hand. He appeared very much amased. i "Why, Martin!" he exclaimed, "can you have been to see Julia?" ' "lea," I answered. "Reconciled?" he aald, arching hla eye brows, which were atill dark and bushy, though hla hair waa grlxsled. 'Not exactly, I replied, with a stiff smile exceedingly difficult to force; "noth ing of th sort Indeed. Captain, when will you take me serosa to Sark?" 'Come, cornel none of that, Martin," he aald; "you're on honor, you know. You are pledged to poor Julia not to visit 8a rk again." "She has Just set me free," I answered; and out of the fullness of my heart I told him all that had just passed between us. His eyes glistened, though a film came across them which he had to wipe away. "She ia a noble girl," be ejaculated; "a fine, generous, noble girl. I really thought ahe'd break her heart over you at first, but sh will com round again now. We will have a run over to Sark to-morrow." I felt myself lifted into a third heaven of delight all that evening. My mother and I talked of no one but Olivia. The present rapture so completely eclipsed the coming Borrow that I forgot bow aoon it would be upon me. I remember now that my mother neither by word nor sign suf fered me to be reminded -of her Illness. Sh listened to my rhapsodies, smiling with ber divine, pathetic smile. There la do love, no love at all, Ilk that of a mother! Swiftly we ran across the next day, with a soft wind drifting over the sea and playing upon our faces, and a long furrow lying in the wake of our boat. It waa almost low tide when we reached the Island. I found Tardlf'a house com pletely deserted. The only sign of life was a family of hens clucking about the fold. - The door was not fastened, and I en tered, but there was nobody there. 1 atood in the middle of the kitchen and called, but there was no answer. Olivia's door was ajar, and I pushed it a little more open. There lay books I .had lent her on the table, and her velvet slippers were on the floor, as it they had only just been taken off. Very worn and brown wer the little slippers, but they reas sured me she had been wearing them a short time ago. I returned through the fold. All the place seemed left to Itself. Tardlf'a sheep were browsing along the cliffs, and his cows were tethered here and there. At last I caught sight of a head rising from behind a crag, the rough shock head of a boy, and I shouted to him, making a trumpet with my hands. "Where is neighbor Tardif?" I called. "Down below there!" ha ahouted back again, pointing downwards to the Havre Gosseiin. I did not wait for any further information, but darted off down the long, steep gulley to the little strand, where the pebbles were being lapped Inaily by the ripple of the lowering tide. Tardif's boat waa within a atone s throw, and t saw Olivia sitting in the stern of it. I ahouted again with a vehemence which made them both start. "Come back, Tardif," I cried, "and take me with you!" The boat was too far off for me to see how my sudden appearance affected Olivia. Did she turn white or red at the sound of my voice? By the time it neared the shore and I plunged in kuee-deep to meet it, her face waa bright with smiles, and ber bands were strct -hed 0nt to help lue over the boat's side, . If Tardif bad not lW '.here I should bar kldfted tbem Lolh. A it was, I tucked np my vet feet out of reach of her dress and took an oar, unabl to utter a word of the gladness I felt. ; "Vli ar you going Vi" I asked, ad dressing neither of them iu particular. "Tardif was going to tnw uie past tb entrance to the 0mlM Cave," answered Olivia, "but w will put it off now. W will return to th hore aud bear all your adventure, Dr. Martin.- You com upon u Ilk a phantom au l tak sn oar la ghostly silence.

A peculiar and unprecedented friend ship has been found to exist between a turkey and a partridge near Monti cello, N. Y. -. Herm Cooney, who re sides on the shore of Silver lake, haa a small flock of turkeys of which he is justly proud. The queen of the Cock is an especially fine specimen, and has always proved a perfect domestic mod el, but for a week past she bas been acting strangely, leaving home In the morning; and not returning until late In the afternoon. Affairs grew gradually worse and finally reached the climax when she did not return borne at night Mr. Cooney, noticing the absence of bis prize turkey, organized a search ing party composed of himself and rat- rick Caller, and started out to search the woods. The search had progressed for some time when they discovered the missing turkey and by Its side was a large partridge. The two were cov ering a large nest and seemed perfect ly contented. They were scared off, and thirteen partridge eggs and nearly as many turkey eggs were found in the nest If the partnership between the turkey and partridge continues to be agree able, Mr. Cooney intends doing an ex tensive business In partridge and tur key raising next year. That New Educational System. The Speers system of Imparting use ful knowledge to the young, as exem plified In Chicago, is not a novel one. With modifications, it is the same sys tem used In training performing mon keys and dogs. The learned pig gets his education by the Speers method. and so the system may justly claim to be well grounded. In the Speers system as prepared for the little bipeds of Chicago, the teach er points out on the Speers chart the word "hop." Then the teacher hops and "skip," and the teacher skips and the children skip. If- the next word is grin," they all grin. If It Is "wink" they all wink. It is fun as well as profit you see especially for the teach er. When It reaches "flip-flap" and "summersault" It becomes more so. "What Is that word, George?" says the fond Chicago father to bis bright offspring. ; ' "Pronounce It for me. daddy," says the bright offspring. ,1 - ' 'Reverse,' " replies daddy. 'Ah, I know," cries Master George. and at once stands on bis head. It certainly Is a nice system. Thread Usedl In SnrRery. The modern surgeon employs In his work dozens of different kinds of thread for sewing up cuts and wounds. Among them are- kangaroo tendons, horsehair, silk and very fine silver wire. Many of these threads are In tended to hold for h certain number of dnys and then naturally break away The short, tough tendons taken from tho kangaroo, which are used for sew ing severe wounds, will hold for about four weeks before they break away. Silk thread will remain much longer, sometimes six months, while the fine silver wire Is practically Indestructible. With the entire outfit a surgeon is able to select a thread that will last as long as the wound takes to heal and will then disappear completely. To accommodate this assortment of threads special varieties of needles are required. Besides the needle craned in different segments of a cir cle, surgeons use needles shaped like spears, Javelins and bayonet points. Some are as long as bodkins, in a point like a miniature knife blade. Others have the sharpened end triangular. "FhtholORnyrrh" Spells "Turner." He walked up to the hotel register and signed his name with a flourish, "E. K. rhtholognyrrh." "Look here. Turner." exclaimed the clerk, who knew him well, "are they hunting for you or wnatr nere ao you get that outlandish name?" "Get back, my boy. get back I You're slow," replied Turner, airily, as he lit a cigar; "that's my same old name writ- fen In plain English and pronounced aa usual lust 'Turner.' Ixok at it. Of course I do it Just to get them all guess ing. They wonder what nation I am from; what my name Is. I can now hear people talk about me all round. It Is, as I said before. English spell ing. 'Phth, there is the sound of 't In 'phthisis'; 'olo,' there Is the 'ur' In 'Colonel;' 'gn,' there Is the V in 'gnat; yrrh' Is the sound of 'er la 'myrrh.' Now, If that doesn't spell 'Tucner' what does It spell?" liens Not Feeling Well. -Twelve eggs sold by a Brooklyn dairyman had ' among them five that were decayed.
