Two days longer they stayed at
Reykjavik, and rambled Idly about
the town, much observed by the Ice
landers and Danes for their monkey
Jackets of blue Manx cloth, and groat
ea boots up to their thighs. Early
on the afternoon of the second day
they sighted, from the new embank
ment where they stood and watched
the masons, a ship coming up the fiord
from the Smoky Point. It was a brig,
with square set sails, and .as she
neared the port she ran up a flag -to
the masthead. The flu was the Ice
landic flag, the banner of the Vikings,
the white falcon on the blue ground,
and the Falrbrothers noticed that nt
the next moment It wan answered by

"He's coming, he's yonder," said
Jacob, flapping his hands under his
armpits to warm them.
In a few minutes they saw that
there was a flutter over the smooth
surface of the life of the town, and
that small groups of people were
trooping down to the Jetty. Half an
hour later the brig ran into harbor,
dropped anchor below the lava reef,
and sent Its small boats ashore, Thre
men sat In the boat; the two sailors
who rowed, and a gentleman who sat
on the seat between them. The gen
tleman was young, flaxen-haired, tall,
light, with a strong yet winsome face
and clad in a squirrel-skin coat and
close-fitting squirrel-skin cap. When
the boat grounded by the Jetty he
leaped ashore with a light spring,
smiled and nodded to the many who
touched their hats to him, hailed oth
ers with a hearty word, and then
swung Into the saddle of a horse that
stood waiting for him, and rode away

When the men whom Michael Sun

Adam Fairbrother and his shipwrecked
company returned to him empty-handed,
he percelvod that they hud gone
astray by crossing a great fiord lying
far eat of Helka when they should
have followed the course of It down
to the sea. So, counting the time that
had been wasted, he concluded to take
ship to a point of the southern coast
In the latitude of the Weslraann Is

atorm delayed him, and he reached the

visions as his ship sped over the sea.
Her beauty, her gentleness, her bold
nees, her playful spirits, and all her
simple loving ways. came flowing over
him wave after wave,, and then In
one great swelling flood. Ami In the
night watches, looking over the dark
waters, and hearing nothing but their
deep moan, he could scarce believe
his fortune, being s-o far away from
the sight of her light figure, and from
the hearing of her sweet voice, that she
was his his love, his wife, his darling.
A hundred tender names he would call
her then, having no ear to hear him
but the melancholy waves, no tongue
to echo him but the wailing wind, and
no eye to look upon him but tbo eye
And many a time on that homeward
voyage, while the sails bellowed out
to the fair breeze that wrs carrying
him to her, he asked himself however
he had been able to live so long with
out hr, and whether he could live with
out her and whether he could live wlth
hls great happiness Into greater grief.
Thinking so, ho recalled the day of her
coming, and the message he got from
the ship in the harbor saying she had
ccme before time, and how he had
hastened down, and Into the boat, and
across the bay, and aboard, with a
secret trembling lest the years might
have so changed her as to take some
thing from her beauty, or her sweet
ness, or her goodness, or yet the
loundIng playfulnegs that was half
the true girl's charm, but, oh, the
dtiicious undeceiving of that day,
when, coming face to face with her
again, he say the rosy tint In her
check and the delicate dimple sucked
Into It when she smiled, and the light
footstep, and the grace of motion, and
the swelling throat, and the heaving
bosom and tho quivering lids over the
most glorious eyes that ever shone
upon this earth! So, at least, it had
seemed to him then, and still it
seemed so m his ship sailed home.
At Smoky Point they lay off an
hour or two to take in letters for the
ci-pltal, and there Intelligence had
como aboard of the arrest, trial, and
condemnation of Jason for his design
and attempt upon the life of the Pres
ident. Michael Sunlocks had been
greatly startled and deeply moved by
the news, and called on the master to
weigh the anchor without more delay
than was necessary, because be had
now a double reason for wishing to be
back in Reykjavik.
And being at length landed there he
galloped up to the Government House,
bounded Indoors with the thought of
his soul speaking out of bis eyes, and
found Greeba there and every one
of his sweetest visions realized. All
hu- hundred tender, foolish, delicious
names he called her over again, but
with better ears to hear them, while
he enfolded her in his arms, with both
her own about his neck, and her beau
tiful head nestling close over his heart,
and her fluttering breast against his
"Dearest," he whispered, "my dar
ling, love of my life, however could I
have you so long?"
"Michael," she whispered back, "If
you say any more I shall be crying."
But the words were haif smothered by
sobs, for she was crying already. See
ing this, he sheered off on another
tack, telling her of his mission In
hearch of her father, and that if he
had not brought the good man back,
at least he had brought good news of

to start to morrow for Tbingvelllr
witn the certainty of meeting him anu

"And now, my love, I have a world of
things to attend to before I can go,"
said Michael Sunlocks, "and you have
to prepare for two days In the saddle

Greeba had been smiling through the
U,' drops that floated In her eyes, but
she grew solemn again, and said
"Ah, Michael, you cannot think what
trouble we have all had while you
ha.vo been away."
"I know it 1 know all," said Mi

stood on the table, and Oscar, bis ser

And being alone, and the candles
lighted and the blinds drawn down,
for night had now fallen In, he sat
at the table to read the mass of let
ters that had gathered In his absence.
There was no communication of any
kind from the Government at Copen
hagen, and satisfying himself on this
point, and thinking for the fiftieth
time that surely Denmark intended, as
she ought, to leave the people of
world-old Iceland to govern them
sdves, he turned with a sigh of relief
to the strange, bewildering, humorous,
pathetic hodge-podge of petitions, com
plaints, requests, demands and threats
that came from every quarter of the
Island itself. And while he laughed
and looked grave, and muttered, and
made louder exclamations over these,
as one by one they passed under hla
eye, suddenly the notes of a harpsi
chord, followed shortly by the sweeter
r.otes of a sweet voice, came to him
fiom another room, and with the tip
of his pen to his lips, he dropped back
in his chair to listen.
"My own song," he thought, and
his eyelids quivered.
"Drink to me only with thine eyes
And I will pledge with mine.
On, leave a kiss within the cup,
And I'll not aak for wine;
The thirst that from the soul doth rise
Doth ask a drink divine;
Hut mitcht l of Jove's nectar sup

It was Greeba singing to him as he
bad bidden her.
"God bless her," he thought again
In the silence that followed.
Ah, little did he think as he listened
to her song that the eyes of the singer
were wet, and that her heart was eat

Railing Lncomotlve from Canal.
A locomotive recently ran off a
bridge over the St. Quentine canal,
near Paris, and fell into the water. It
was found impoBslble to raise the loco
motive, as the space was so confined,
so divers passed chains around It, and
these were attached to beams. The
load was then raised by means of
screw supports, blocking being intro
duced as the work proceeded to guard
against a possible breakdown. The lo
comotive was lifted fourteen feet, so
that a sand-laden barge could be run
underneath. The engine was then
lowered and taken away. Five days
were consumed in doing the work.

A CASE OF LAW.
Banto Decision aires Reward Baffe-f
tag- Dofa Owner. j
Law Is a complicated thing, and some!
of its decisions secsn not to be founded
in equity. Probably most readers wllf
pass that criticism npon the case re-'
corded below. Basutoland, being bro
ken and mountainous, was until re
cently the resort of lions, leopards and
other wild animals. Now, however, the
hillsides which were once the resort
of these savage creatures are the pas--ture-grounds
of tens of thousands of
cattle. Nearly all dangerous animals
have been driven away from Basuto
land, but not long ago a leopard ap
peared on the outskirts of a village.
The animal soon became badly fright
ened 'as the villagers, and sought safe-1
ty in flight. The next morning the In
habitants turned out for a hunt. One'
of the hunters was climbing a steep
rock when he suddenly found himself
retreat was cut off by the roe itself.
Neither the animal nor the man could
escape the encounter. The dilemma
was an awkward one, for the climber
was unarmed. Recognizing bis danger,
be put forth his hands and in despera
tion caught hold of the leopard on each
side of its jaws, holding It at arm's
length and calling for help. The
leopard clawed and tore his captor,
but the man held on till help arrived
and the beast was speared. Now came
a question of law. By Basuto law the
skin belonged to the chief who must
reward one of three claimants either
the man who speared the leopard, or
the man who held it so that it was
possible to spear it, or the man who,
being warned by the barking of his
dog, first discovered the animal la the
village. The Basuto Solomon decided
the case as f clows: The man who
speared it could not have done so but
for the man who held it, and the man
who held it could not have known of
Its existence if the dog had not first
warned the village; therefore the cred
it for the killing belonged to the dog,
whose owner was entitled to the re
ward. WHERE AMERICA LEADS,
Oar College Are Mora Available for
. Wtmen than England.
A writer in the London Daily Mail
states that popular sentiment ia Ameri
ca has done Its greatest work in giv
ing the poor girl a desire to go to col
lege and in giving her a college where
she can go. The girl who wants to go
on 50 a year can do it Unless she
lives in a secluded village or a very
small town she can go on half that
sum. There are few towns of any size
without a college of some kind, pri
vately endowed and publicly maintain
ed. Next to this almost universality ot
opportunity, the American college girl
values most the social trust given her
in It all and the knowledge of mea
which she receives. The typical Am
erican girl studied side by side- with
her brother in the lower grades; she
went to college naturally with him.
It never occurred to her that she could
not. It never occurred to him that she
should not. Every American girl Is
trusted socially and the typical Ameri
can college girl the co-educational
girl receives this trust to the great
est degree. She thinks the English
college girl as capable, even more so.
of having this same social trust "Does
not England need now the American
type of the college woman?" asks the
American. "And, in making higher
education so popular that most girls,
whether rich or poor, would want It,
and so cheap that most girls could get
it; in raising the intellectual standard
of English womanhood in general, as
would be done by the former; in giv
ing discipline of mind to hundreds who
need it in the fight for bread, as would
be done by the latter in these Is there
not a mission as great and as vital as
woman's education need have?"
