tnV Others came in auietlv and soft! v and
looked in as if understanding the
grave nature of the proceedings, and
anxiodslv awaited the result.
The girl never took her eyes off the
marble face before her. She expected
the life to return, and she was not dis
appointed, for In a short time, Louis
opened his eyes, gazed languidly about
the room, and, ae if exhausted by the
effort, fell asleep and slept all the
night through.
On awakening, he was told of the de
itarture of the ship, with his compan
ions on board, of his supposed death,
the surmise be had been poisoned, and
the result of the application of the
antidote. He was told that Captain
Bodflsh pleaded for the body to be
taken on board the ship and how pain-
lui lrwae lor tne physician to refuse.
All, everything, showing the devo
tion of his companion wax told him.
and he listened and wondered what it
could mean. During the day strength
ening drinks were admlniHtered to
blm, and on the morrow he arose from
his cot seemingly stronir and f nil v re
covered from his Illness.
The mysteries that now overw helmed
the poor lad nearly drove hlra mad.
He had been poisoned. By whom? He
was told that when his life was thought
extinct, the doctor's daughter had de
tected evidence of jwison, and the
changing hue upon his face had re
vealed the nature of the drug he had
taken, and enabled the maiden to ob
tain the antidote that restored him to
conaciousneag. The locket containing
Marv's picture and a lock of her hair
had been removed from about his neck.
Who did that? Perhaps it was Cap
tain Bodflsh or Charles, who would re
store the precious gifts to the affianced
wild tne story of bis death in a strange
land and his burial bva atranire neooTe:
or it might be the girl who had saved
his life had removed it and bidden or
destroyed it
Could it be that this zirl adminis
tered the poison when the shiu hove
in sight, and, with her knowledge
of the drug, kept him as one deed un
til the ship had sailed and then an-
plied the antidote that brought his life
back to him? That could not be. be
cause even while his companions were
taking a last look of his face, the girl 1

and fled like a deer to the mountains.
nor did she return until the last boat ;
had been pushed from shore.
On the mountain side she had irath-
erod the life-restoring herb, had i
steeped it in boiling water, and not a '
moment too soon had oiired the thn
down his throat Had she given
the poison, would she not have
the antidote ready at the exact time to
apply it? No it could not be the girl

ten under sail and by night fall wm far
out to sea. Cant. Bodflsh could not con
ceal bis feelings. The tears come
freely without bidding. He felt that
he had not only lost a a-ood friend, but
all tbe circumstances connected with
his death were sad In the extreme.
Could he even have brouirht the bodr

When the the messenger brought
the dispatch. Mrs. Patterson was lying
on her couch sick almost unto death.
She was surrounded with loving friends
who sought to prove their devotion by
little acts of kind nea-, but neither kilt
nor kin were there to comfort her.
Vet Mary Nordruiu had lieentoher
Mother Patterson all that child could
be. Their tears had mingled together;
their hopes centered on the same ob
ject of afflict ion, and the heart of one
knew no win the other didn't experi
ence, except the mysterious secret
about Major Nordruiu s will, which the
sick woman, for some strange reason,
refused to divulgo.
Mary read the message first. The
trials and sorrows she had experienced
nerved her for any event, no matter
what it miirht Int. Kor a moment she
was overcome by t he glad news. Her
thoughts went out to Mrs. 'atterwm,
for she feared the effect of sum jovful
tidings upon Iuis mother. With
head lowed upon the ioor sick woman's
breast, wid with arms tenderly en
twined around her neck. Mary told her
adopted mother of the expected ar
rival of her sou.
Mrs. Patterson listened unmoved,
then turned her head toward the wall.
as If she would be alone with her i
thoughts. An hour pucd. Then,
arousing herself and iM-rkeoning Mary
to come to her" bedside, she simplv
said she prayed to live loug enough to
take her dear boy by the hand, place
it in Mary's, biess her children, and
commend her spirit to the God who
gave it.
Was her prayer answered?
Several days and nights paed, and
the hour of IjOtiLs'evpected arrival was
near at hand. A kind ueighlsjr had
offered to meet Ixuis with a carriage
and bring him to his. home.
During the day Mrs. Patterson ap
peared to sleep. Her eyes were closed
and she breathed naturally. Suddenly
she raised herself up in bed and looked
eagerly about the room. She was not
excited, but calm and self-comiosd.
Lifting her hand and pointing her
long, bony fingeis toward the open
window, throiiifh which the setting un
shone bright and clear she cxcla.m-'d.
in a voice loud and distinct for one so
near the grave:
"See there! Look vonder! What a
beautiful light: How brilliant it Is!
How grand: Watch its golden rays
spreading out on all sides and in every
dlroction. Nearer and nearer it comes,
wider and wider its pathway la ex
tended, and Itrighter and brighter
grows its glittering rays, and now it
seems to cover tbe land with new life,
new joys, new hopes, new expectations,
and a brighter future."
Onandonshi went describing her
wondrous vision shaking as one in
spired. Suddenly she stopped and
gazed upon the wondering group. The
silence was then broken by the sound
of rattling wheels of a carriage ap
proaching the house. The expected
one has come. The little group around
the bedside retire, all save the weep
ing girl, who haa clasped her band In
that of the dying woman, and the at
tending physician.
The door opens, a young man bounds

so calm, then affectionately embraces
the trembling girl, who stands motion
less and white as a statue of the purest
pare an marble, and implants a kiss
upon ner ups, watch salutation she
feelingly and lovingly returns.
The sick woman gazed first upon the
young man then iipoo the young girl,
and, without moving a muscle or utter
ing a word, closed hor eyes. Tbe sob
bing girl appealed to the dying woman
to speak to her, and beseechingly Im
plored her to "give your ohlldrea
your Louis, your Mary your blessing."
"Ob, sainted mother, the angola ask

; 1(on in l)le k.i.iui.' of a shrewd, cun-
nim.' liisn. he could ask for nothioir
I more than he had at his command. He
was in js-Hisession of a fund of information
that would enable him to meet and re
pel any suspicion that Mary Nordrum
or anyof her neighlstrs might enter
tain as to his identity.
He started out with the knowledge
that through deception he possessed
Mary Norilrum's love Ifiveaa pure and
guiltless as innocence itself. While it
was really love for another, it rested
with liiui to be able to so personate
that other throughout the twelve
months cutom hail fixed should elapee
between a death in the family and a
marriage, its to never give cause for
the shadow of a suspicion of the decep
tion. Charles Manning had made himself
believe that he was not committing a
crime in thu dexperste game he waa
plating, lie did" not even think it a
game, lie had imbued his conscience
with such plausible arguments, in de
fense of hi Intentions that It became
seared and callous as far as any sus
ceptibility to a moral impression was
concerned, and he had only to commit
with that inward monitor to find a
counselor that would second any
scheme he might undertake.
His soliloquies were ingenious, ana
to his conscience were convincing. If
Mary Nordrum believed he was her
lover, if Heaven had fashioned two
men as much alike that a maiden of
ordinary intelligence, who had given
her heai-t lo one, after years of Inti
macy and devotion, should continue
that love to the other, and after a long
period of similar intimacy with that
other, fail to detect a shadow of de
ception, he could not see wherein any
wrong existed.
He had i-o js?rvetied hia conscience
that it concealed from him the evil
which was in his heart when
Louis Patterson first told him the
story of hia love for Mary Nordrum; that
it concealed froui him tho evil that Was
intensified and develoKd into an un
pardonable crime when he gave tho
drought to hi companion with the in
tention of preventing him from enjoy
ing Mary Nordruiu' love: that it con
cealed from him the infamy which
made, up the d' sjiate wheino he had
planned to secure the love of ono that
Isslieved that she was loving another.
Charles Manning may ttave oon
flcieutiously Isslieved if .Wry Ncrdrum
never learned of the deception prac
ticed upon her there was no wrong
done. This thing of conscience either
takes to c-urious fits and startling
terms, at time-, or else some other
force crowd it out of place.
Charles Manning had made himself
believe tun! hU conscience approved
of every s -'lenit: he di vled to cheat
and deceive Maey Nordrum.

Mrdel Havings Bank.
The greatest savlnas bank In this
country Is tbe i'rotideot Institution
of Boston. It Mas started in 1816,
and has run until thin time with, to
use tbe words ,f Its President, Henry
Lee, "not the loss of a dollar by dis
honesty." 'There is a tradition,"
said Mr. Lee, -that tha bank waa
founded partly at the urgent request
of good Bishop, afterward Cardinal,'
Cbeverus. that his 'people,' as ha
railed tbem, might have a place of
deposit; so as not to spend or lose
their little savlnes.
A few years later, at the Bishop's
suggestion, the plan of partial with
holding of the hank's earnings and
the declaration of surplus dlvldencs
every five years was adopted. This
was to induce the tame people to
keep as well aa to depo-dt their sav
ings in the bank." The institution
now has over uo,ooo depositors ana
over 3 000, 0()0 In deposits. The
largest depo It which the manage
ment is allowed t accept is 11,000
The I ank in tho early period paid ft
percent Interest, but the rata is now
i par cant The surplus dlvldenda
very Ave years are no longer paid, aa
th law of the State now requires tha
(suing aside of a reserve fund.
