A WOMAN'S LOVE.
A black cros bad been set against
Judge Havkln name. Why, it is
not for me to say. We were not ac
customed to explain our motives or
fire reaaoa for our ded The deed
were enough, and this black cross
meant death, and when it had been
shown us all that we needed to know
further was at what hour we should
meet for the contemplated raid. A
word from the captain settled that and
when the next Friday came s dozen
men mot at the place of rendezvous
ready for the ride which should bring
them to the Judge solitary mansion
across the mountains. I was among
them, and in as satisfactory a mood as
I bad ever been in my life for the
night was favorable and the men
hearty and in first-rate condition.
. The house toward which we were
riding was built on a hillside, and the
first thicg we saw on emerging from
the forest was a light burning in one
of the distant windows. This was a
surprise, for the hour was late, and in
that part of the country people were
accustomed to retire early, even such
busy men a the judge, lis must have
a villi Lor. and m visitor uihaui a jX..i-
ble complication of affairs, ho a halt
was called, and I was singled out to
reconnoitre the premises.
The house, which bud now become
plainly visible, wai a solid one of
tone, built as I have said, on the hill
side. It faced the road, as shown by
the large portico dimly to be discerned
In that direction, but its rooms wero
mainly on the side, and it was from
one of these that the light shone. , A
I came yet nearer I perceived that those
rooms were guarded by a piazza,
which, communicating with the portico
In front, afforded an open road to that
window and a clear sight of what lay
behind it I was Instantly off my
horse and upon the piazza, and before
I had time to realize that my fears had
returned to me with double force I had
crept st dttlthly toward that uncurtained
window and looked in.
i What did I see? At first nothing
but a calm, studious figure bending
above a batch of closely written pa
per, upon which the light shone too
brightly for mo to perceive much of
what lay behind them. But gradually
an influence, of whoso workings I was
came conscious, drew my eyes away,
and I began to discover on every side
trango and beautiful object! wblch
greatly interested me, until vuddenly
my eyes fell upon a vision of loveliness
so enchanting that I forgot to look
elsewhere, and bocame for the moment
nothing but eight and fooling.
It was a picture, or so I thought in
the first Instant of awe and delight
But presently I saw that it was a
woman, living and full of thoughts
that had never been mine; and at the
discovery, a sudden trembling seized
me, for I hod never soen anything like
her beauty, while she saw nothing but
the man who was bending over his
papers. There was a door or some
thing dark behind her, and against
It her tall, strong figure, clod In close
white gown, stood out with a distinct
ness that was not altogether earthly.
But It was hor face that held me and
made of me from moment to moment
a new man. For in it I discerned what
I had never believed In till now, de
votion that had no limit and love which
asked nothing in return. She seemed j
to be faltering on the threshold of that
room, as one who would like to enter,
but does not dare, and in another mo
ment with a stullo that pierced me
through, she turned as if to go. In
stantly I forgot everything but my de
spair, and leaned forward with an im
petuosity that betrayed my presence.
She glanced quickly toward the win
dow, and, seeing me, turned pale, even
while she rose in height till I felt my
self ebrlvk and grow small before hor.
Thrusting out hor hand she caught
from the table before her what looked
like a small dasrtrer, nnd holding it up,
advanced upon me with blazing eyt
and parted lip, not eeolng that the
judge had rlen to his foot, not seeing
anything but'my face gluod azatasi the
pane, and staring with an expression
that must have struck to the heart, n
surely as her look pleroel mine, W hen
she was almost MjH'n mo I turned and
fled. Hull could not have frightened
me, but hotven did; and for me that
woman wa heaven, whether the smiled
or frowned. gl ujioa another with
love, or ralMHl a dagger to strike m
to the ground.

According to Dr. Verincourt chief

'STOOD BY THE VANE."
Hat imbed the Spire ef Ssusfcarr' Crest
During one of hi vacation In hi
youthful day. Dr. James Freeman
Clarke performed a feat that well de
serve to be recorded. When he told
b! friend afterward it terrified them,
and it is no commonplace thing to
read about now. Here is the extra
ordinary tale a Dr. E. E, Hale, the
editor of the Memoir, set it down:
"The plre of Salisbury Cathedral
ia a little more than four hundred feet
high. With some friends Mr. Clarke
ascended a far as the interior stair
case goes, to what i called the weath
er door about thirty feet from the ex
treme top of the spire. The other
were then satisfied with what they had
done, but he went out and climbed up
the remaining part of the spire by
iron handle fixed in the wall, these
having been arranged for the conveni
ence of workmen who have to attend
to the vane.
"When he arrived at the highest ot
these handle he found a bur above
him, running around the eplre. which
he could reach with hi hands. By
thl he lifted himself to the level of the
ball and, a most version of thl an
ecdote say, stood on top of the bull,
with such support a the lightning rod
could give him, surveying the scene.
"He then roturnod to tho supporting
rod and dropped himself, expecting to
find the friendly bolt by which ho had
ascondod. But it was not there, and
he reflected, too late, that he had not
observed on which lde of the spire it
was. Then and there he bod, so to
speak, to work around the spire, hang
ing on by his hands; and having un
fortunately chosen tho loist favorable
direction, ho nearly compietsa tno cir

bolt, which was to bo the first step in
When Dr. C'.nrko told thl story to
hi classmates more thnn a generation
after the event occurred, "old friend
of his found they could not sleep that
night in the terror of what might have
happened." In his letter to friend at

river after having planted hi twenty
stations, there were only about 20i)
white men left to continue the variou
phase of hi work. There are now
over 800 whlto men on the Conga
Over one-third ot them are in the
service of the Congo State, while the
other are engaged in trading and
missionary enterprise. In 1889 Boma,
the capital of the Free State, contained
the greatest number of white, but but
year it wa surpassed by 5IatadL which
ia at the head of navigation on the
lower Congo. Matadi ha gone ahead
because it is the atartlng point of the
Congo railroad, and most of the white
at that place are engaged in building
Matada now has a whlto population
of 169 soul, whf'.j Boma ha ten let.
Boma 1 the seat of government and
also the place where a numbor of im
portant European trading firms make
their headquarter. It hit a railroad
leading from the wharf up to the anl-ta-lum,
the hotel and the governmont
building on the bolght away from the
river. With lU considerable native
population and the large variety of
business transacted there, Boma 1 a
vory busy little place.
Leopoldvlile, the chief settlement
on the upper river at Stanley Pool ha
eighty-two white. There ara only
fifteen American on the river, nearly
all of whom are mUslonarie. Thirty
two Dano and Swede are among the
employeu of the Congo state, and al
most to a man they are epgaged In the
steamboat service, many of them being
engineers. The sixty-three Italian
oa the river are at work on the rail
road. They were taken from Southern
Italy, because the climate there Is
warm and it wa thought they would
endure bard corvlco in Africa bettor
than workmen from North Europe,
They are bosse or section hauds, who
teach the native truck gradur bow to
perform their labor and they tiperln
tend ths work, often toklr.g a hand
to show the nutive how tho work
should lo done.
The forty-five Egyptian are soldlor
lmiiorted from Egypt for the purpose
of setting a good military example to
the native soldiery organized by the
tuto. Half of the Egyptian are in
tho garrison at Boma and the other
half are at Leopold villc.
Banana, the settlement at the mouth
of the Congo, bo now a population of
only eighty-throe whites, and ha been
surpassed by Ioopoldvllle, in tho In
terior. There are now more white
men at each of the half dozen post
on the upper Congo than there were at
Leopoldvlllo, the chief point on tho
river, five year ago.
White men on tho Congo are finding
that with the introduction of more
comfort from Europe, with a supply
of better food on their tables, and
with medical attendance at a number
of the more important stations, they
can live on tho river in far better
health than a few year ago. The
mortality, now that the river ha a
