horrifying truth passed through Mr. Eday s
mind with the velocity ot an electrio current.
Mr. Eddy is a strong man, and when we say
he struggled fiercely to regain the surface of
tbe sea, we would have the reader duly Im
pressed with the magnitude of the struggle.
The octopus pulled bard, but with Mr. Eddy
it was a case of life and death, and it was en
tirely to Mr. Eddy's credit that he puUed a
trifle harder than the octopus.
While thus battling Mr. Eddy was again
drawn under the water and he then thought
his last hour bad come. - His past life passed
like a momentary panorama before his mind,
but there was nothing in it to occasion him
remorse. Should he suffer himself to be car
ried off and devoured by a dirty, soulless oc
topus, an Inappreciative, plebeian cuttlefish?
No, he would die rather than be slain by such
an Ignoble reptile 1 Yet he felt, he was grow-:
ing weaker and weaker, an awful chilliness
swept np and down his veins and bis brain
seemed to reel- He made another heroic at
tempt to rise to the surface. The octopus
clung to him like grim death.
"Helpl. helpl helpl" shrieked Mr. Eddy
once more, and then he lapsed into uncon
solo ran ess.
Mr. Eddy was lying in a b'fe-boat when he
came to his senses, and strong men were chaf

I met an old friend the other day, remarks
Bill Arp, and says he: "I Just wish you
could see my boy. I'm fixing him up for
college, and he's just the smartest boy in all
this country. He is a natural orator. He
has got gifts, he has. . He speaks now like
Henry Clay. He took the medal in decla
T wish von could see him on the

. I looked at him mournfully, and says I:
hi fa sari -trnrv sad. I never knew a natural
nmter to be rhv account. I was a natural
orator and it rained me. I've never been
anv account. I took a pewter medal when I
wo a vnnnir. and I've never gotten over it. It
was for gpeaking a speech. I thought then
that I had whipped the battle of life and

to fight on ever since, and my medal didnt

down and wait for invitations to make
speeches at college commencements. They
are right useful that way."

With a swagger the female walked through
the hot sand, and, arter allowing tne spec

did tbe same. For full half an hour they sat
browning themselves in tbe sun and warming
up for tbe batb. Tbe tide was out and the
water shallow for a great distance; tbe three
figures walked on, ana on, untu iney reacneu

Among the laborers along shore were many
negroes, the blackest I ever saw; literally
coal, black. -One thick-lipped young fallow
whom I engaged to carry my valise spoke an
y.ngiiah so choice that it would have done
credit to a lord. All the negroes who spoke
English spoke " it in the same way, for they
were from Jamaica. ' The effect of ; this
polished accent was rather tndicroos. ! It
seemed like attending a minstrel show, com
posed entirely of "centre men;? - and one
listened in vain fop the "end anan's" dialect.
I had always supposed that the negro pro
nunciation to which we are.. accustomed was
the result of a pendiar cc4if ormation of the
vocal organs, but here, if one should shut bis
eyes in the presence of these charcoal-hoed
fellows, one might fancy himself in the streets
of Ixokdon. Query: Where did our darkies
get their accent! Many sonthern whites
speak is the same' way, and we have been
told that they learn it from the negroes; but
perhaps ft may be that the negroes learned It
from them. Xf that is the case, where did
