By this time the enthusiasm was
wonderful. The short, quick denials
rame hotter and louder at every
verse; and it was easy to understand
how these large, slow men, once
kindled to white heat, were both irre
sistible and unconquerable. Every eye
was turned to Joris, who stood in his
massive, manly beauty a very con
spicuous figure. His face was full
af feeling and purpose, his large blue
eyes limpid and shining; and. as the
tumult of applause gradually ceased,

Even the women had caught fire at
this allusion to the injustice of the
Stamp Act and Quartering Acts, then
tinging over the liberties of the Prov

ly and not unkindly at the latent
rebels. "England will have foemen
worthy of her steel, if she turns these
good friends into enemies,” she re
The emotion was too intense to be
prolonged; and Joris instantly pushed
back his chair, and said, “Now, then,
friends, for the dance. Myself I think
not too old to lake out the bride.”
Neil Semple, who had looked like a
man in a dream during the singing,
went eagerly to Katherine as soon as
Joris spoke of dancing. “He felt
strong enough,” he said, “to tread a
measure in the bride's dance, and he
hoped she would so far honor him.”
“No, I will not, Neil. I will not take
your hands. Often I have told you

Katherine’s Decision.
Joanna’s wedding occurred at the
beginning of the winter and the winter
festivities. But amid all the dining
and dancing and skating there was a
political anxiety and excitement that
leavened strongly every social and
domestic event. The first Colonial
Congress had passed the three resolu
tions which proved to be the key note
of resistance and of liberty. Joris
had emphatically indorsed its action.
The odious Stamp Act was to be met
by the refusal of American merchants
either to Import English goods, or to
sell them upon commission, until it
was repealed. Homespun became
fashionable. The government kept its
hand upon the sword. The people
were divided Into twro parties, bitterly
antagonistic to each other. The
“Sons of Liberty” were keeping guard
over the pole which symbolized their
determination; The British soldiery
were swaggering and boasting and
openly Insulting patriots on the
streets, and the “New York Gazette”
In flaming articles was stimulating to
the utmost the spirit of resistance to

and her letters revealed to him % soul

•very day of bis life.”
One exquisite morning in May Kath
erine stood at an open window look
ing over the garden and the river, and
the green hills and meadows across
the stream. Her heart was full of
hope. Richard's recovery was so far
advanced that he had taken several
rides in the middle of the day. Al
ways he had passed the Van Heems
kirks’ house and always Katherine
had been waiting to rain down upon
his uplifted face the influence of her
most bewitching beauty and her ten
derest smiles.
As she happily mused, some one
called her mother from the front hall.
On fine mornings it was customary
to leave the door standing open; and
the visitor advanced to the foot of
the stairs and called once more,
“Lysbet Van Heemskirk! Is there
naebody in to bid me welcome?”
Then Katherine knew it was Madam
Semple; and Bho ran to her mother’s
room and begged her to go down
and receive the caller. For in these
days Katherine dreaded Madam Sem
ple a little. Very naturally, the moth
er blamed her for Neil’s suffering and
loss of time and prestige; and she
found it hard to forgive also her posi
tive rejection of his suit.
And towards Nell, Joris had a se
cret feeling of resentment. He had
taken no pains to woo Katherine until
some one else wanted her. It was
universally conceded that he had been
the first to draw his sword, and thus
indulge his own temper at the expense
of their child’s good name and hap
piness. So, below the smiles and kind
words of a long friendship, there was
bitterness. If there had not been
Janet Semple would hardly have paid
that morning visit; for before Lysbet
was half way down the stairs, Kath
erine heard her call out:
“Here's a bonnle come of. But it is
what a’ folks expected. ‘The Daunt
less' sailed the morn, and Capt. Earl
wi’ a contingent for the West Indies
station. And who wi’ him, guess you,
but Capt. Hyde, and no less? They
say he has a furlough in his pocket
for a twelve-month; more like it’s a
clean total dismissal. The gude ken
it ought to be.”
So much Katherine heard, then her
mother shut the door of the sitting
room. A great fear made her turn
faint and sick. Were her father’s
w'ords true? The suspicion once en
tertained, she remembered several
little things which strengthened it.
Her heart failed her; she uttered a
low cry of pain, and tottered to a
chair like one wounded.
It was then ten o’clock. She
thought the noon hour would never
come. Eagerly she watched for Bram
and her father; for any certainty
would be better than such cruel fear
and suspense. And, if .Richard had
really gone the fact would be known
to them. Bram came first. For once
she felt impatient of his political en
thusiasm. How could she care about
liberty poles and Impressed fishermen
with such a real terror at her heart?
Joris was tenderly explicit. He said
to her at once: “‘The Dauntless’
sailed this morning. Oh, my little
one, sorry I am for thee!”
"Is he gone?” Very low and slow
were the words; and Joris only an
swered, “Yes.”
Without any further question or re
mark, she went away. They were
amazed at her calmness. And for
some minutes after she had locked
the door of her room, she stood still
In the middle of the floor, more like
one that has forgotten something, and
is trying to remember, than a woman
who has received a blow upon her
heart. No tears came to her eyes.
She did not think of weeping or re
proaching, or lamenting. The only
questions she asked herself were:
“How am I to get life over? Will
such suffering kill me very soon?”
About two o’clock Lysbet went to
Katherine. The girl opened her door
at once to her. There was nothing
to be said, no hope to offer. The
mother did not attempt to say one
word of comfort, or hope, or excuse.
She only took the child in her arms,
and wept for her.
i loveu nun bo mucn, moeuer.
“Thou could not help it. Handsome
and gallant and gay he was.”
“And he did love me. A woman
knows when she is loved.”
"Yes, I am sure he loved thee.”
“He has gone? Really gone?”
“No doubt is there of it. Stay in
thy room, and have thy grief out with
“No; I will come to my work. Ev
ery day will not be the same. I shall
look no more for any Joy; but my duty
I will do.”
They went, downstairs together.
The clean linen, the stockings that
required mending, lay upon the table.
Katherine sat down to the task. Res
olutely, but almost unconsciously, she
put her needle through and through.
Her suffering was pitiful; this little
one who a few months ago would have
wept for a cut finger, now silently
battling with the bitterest agony that
can come to a loving woman—the
sense of cruel, unexpected, unmerited
desertion. So for an hour, an hour of
speechless sorrow, they sat. The at
mosphere was becoming intolerable,
like that of a nightmare; and Lysbet
was feeling that she must speak and
move, and so dissipate it, when there
was a loud knock at the front door.
Katherine trembled all over. “To
f *«y I cannot bear It, mother. No on*
can I see. I will go upstairs."
Ere the words were finished, Mae.
Gordon’s voice was audible. She
came into the room laughing, with the
smell of freEh violets and the feeling
of the brisk wind around her. “Dear
madam.” she cried, “I entreat you for
a favor. I am going to take the air
this afternoon; be so good as to let
Katherine come with me. For I must
tell you that the colonel has orders
for Boston, and 1 may see my charm
ing friend no more after to-day.”
“Katherine, what say you? Will
you go?”
"Please, mljn moeder.”
"Make great haste, then.” For
Lysbet was pleased with the offer,
and fearful that Jorls might arrive,
and refuse to let his daughter accept
it. She hoped that Katherine would
receive some comforting message.
"Stay not long,” she whispered,
"for your father’s sake. There is no
good, more trouble to give him.”
"Well, my dear, you look like a
ghost. Have you not one smile for a
woman so completely in your Interest?
I promised Dick this morning that I
would be sure to get word to yow"
“I thought Richard had gone.”
"And you were breaking your heart
that is easy to be seen. He has gone,
but he will come hack to-night at
eight o’clock. No matter what hap
pens, be at the riverside. Do not
fail Dick; he is taking his life in his
hand to see you.”
"I thought he had "one—gone, with
out a word.”
"Faith you are not complimentary!
I flatter myself that our Dick is a
gentleman. I do, indeed. And, as he
is yet perfectly In his senses, you
might have trusted him.”
“When will Richard return?”
"Indeed, I think you will have to
answer for his resolves. But he will
speak for himself; and. in faith, I told
him that he had come to a point where
I would be no longer responsible for
his actions. I am thankful to own
that I have some conscience left.”
The ride was not a very pleasant
one. Katherine could not help feeling
that Mrs. Gordon was distrait and in
consistent; and, towards its close, she
became very silent. Yet she kissed
her kindly, and drawing her closely
for a last word, said, “Do not forget to
wear your wadded cloak and hood.
You may have to take the water; for
the councillor is very suspicious, let
me tell you. Remember what I say—
the wadded cloak and hood; and good
by, my dear."
“Shall I see you soon?”
“When we may meet again, I do
not pretend to say; till then, I am en
tirely yours; and so again good-by.”
The ride had not occupied an hour;
but, when Katherine got home, Lysbet
was making tea. “A cup will be good
for you, mijn kind.” And she smiled
tenderly in the face that had been so
white in its woeful anguish, but on
which there was now the gleam of
hope. And she perceived that Kather
ine had received some message; she
even divined that there might be some
appointment to keep; and she deter
mind not to be too wise and prudent,
but to trust Katherine for this even
ing with her own destiny.
That night there w'as a meeting at
the town hall and Joris left the house
soon after his tea.
For an hour or more Katherine sat
in the broad light of the window, fold
ing and unfolding the pieces of white
linen, sewing a stitch or two here,
and putting on a button or tape there.
Madam passed quietly to and fro
about her home duties, sometimes
stopping to say a few words to her
daughter. When Lysbet was ready
to do so, she began to lay into the
deep drawers of the presses the table
linen which Katherine had so neatly
and carefully examined. Over a pila
of fine damask napkins she stood,
with a perplexed, annoyed face; and
Katherine, detecting it, at once un
derstood the cause.

Andfthe Incident Caused Bad Feeling
Between Anglers.
Funny things happen in bass fish
ing. Toward the close of the season
William Hammeyer of Winneconne,
Wis., was fishing from a boat with
his friend, G. B. Hamilton of Peru,
Ind. - They were on Fox Lake and
fishing was not good, which made
them eager.
Hammeyer got a strike, fastened
his fish and began to reel in strongly,
determined to land his catch without
less of time. Hamilton got a strike
and did the same thing. They had
been an hour without a bite and had
no leisure or inclination to watch one
another. The first fish after an
hour’s casting is apt to get on the
When the bass was close to the
boat Hammeyer discovered that he
was bringing in his friend’s line and
“We’re tangled! Let out a little
line till I get this fish in.”
Hamilton discovered the tangle at
the same time and said the same
thing. They glared at each other and
reeled furiously.
With a jerk that ought to have loos
ened all of its scales a pound bass
came out of the water. Hammeyer’s
weedless hook was fastened in one
side of its jaw, Hamilton’s was fast
ened in the other. They lifted the
bass in and looked at one another.
They agreed without words to call it
a partnership fish.
Both men had cast at the same in-|
stant, and their baits had struck the

Bridal Outfit of the Young Lady No
Tax on Adam’s Pocketbook—How
Misfortunes Finally Came to the
Happy Family.
A great many years ago, long befor*
It entered tne mind of man to con
struct the Tower of Babel, or to lay
out the city of Buffalo or to do many
other foolish and wicked things—
there resided in a distant land a gen
tleman called Adam, whose surname
was First Man, who became enamored
of a beautiful young lady, known as
Eve B. Guiled. His attentions appear
to have been reciprocated by the lady,
and she became convinced he was "the
only man she could ever love,” if wo
may judge from the following com
munication which she made to John
Milton, who followed the rather singu
lar vocation of advertising things
“Lost and Found” upon her Father's
Estate. "Confirmed, then I resolved
Adam shall share with me in bliss or
woe; so dearly I love him, that with
him all deaths I could endure, with
out him, live no life.”
This being equivalent to the modest
declaration that the lady is willing
that her lover should begin to “pay
her board,” arrangements were im
mediately made to have the union as
sured, and in the absence of an offi
cial clergyman the ceremony was per
formed in the most simple and unos
tentatious manner, in the beautiful
garden of Eden.
The outfit of the groom was plain
and simple, perhaps the most notice
able thing about it being absence of
the dress coat, prescribed for such oc
casions by “our best society.” The
bridal costume was marked by perfect
simplicity and absence of all expensive
and extravagant adornments. There
must have been something very be
coming in this costume, as certain
ladies in fashionable life at the pres
ent day, imitate it as closely as possi
ble when in full dress.
Dispensing with the practice now so
prevalent of indulging in a wedding j
tour, and not caring publicly to pro
claim themselves as newly married by
the occupancy of the bridal chambers
in the hotels and on steamboats, the
happy couple settled quietly down to
the joys and cares of married life in
the Garden of Eden, and were noted
for their plain and unpretending man
ner of living. They kept no carriage,
hired no opera box, gave no costly en
tertainments, but contented them
selves with the simple, inexpensive
and satisfactory pleasures and enjoy
ments incident to the circumstances
and surroundings.
Adam was a good husband; he spent
his evenings (and a good many of his
days) at home, he had no business en
gagements “down street,’ nor did he
belong to a club. Undoubtedly he was
an early riser and loved the "dewy
morn"—as we are sure he did the
“gentle Eve." Eve was doubtless a
very beautiful woman. She deserved,
if any of her eex ever did, the credit
of caring little for the blandishments
of dress. Her tastes and habits were
eminently domestic, and for her, in
truth, there was no place like home.
Eve, so far as we know, spent littie
of her time and money "shopping,”
and it is not probable that she had
ever heard of Stewart’s, that Mecca of
American women. She never sent
Adam to a restaurant for his meals
Mondays, because they were washing
days, nor made his life miserable by
reason of semi-annual house-cleanings.
She was not a heartless woman of the
world, nor did she ever affilia:e with
Mrs. Grundy and kindred spirits, and
never troubled herself about the own
ership of an extra pair of stockings
dangling from her neighbor's clothes
We regret to add that misfortunes
eventually came upon this happy fam
ily. Eve unfortunately became in
volved in a transaction of fruit—ap
ples,* principally—in which Adam was
involved, and their property, including
the homestead, passed out of their
possession, and they were obliged to
seek a residence elsewhere. From this
time we know little about them ex
cept that Adam, with careful attention
to his diet, managed to live and reach
the age of 930, and died in the prime
of manhood, his days being shortened,
doubtless, materially, by the loss of
his property. Whether Eve survived
him or deceased first, we cannot say
but presume she did.—Exchange.
Surprised Card Party.
Three civil engineers while travel
ing from Amiens to Paris began to
play cards on an apparently aban
doned lunch basket of large dimen
sions, which had been lying on the
hat rack.
It appeared to be rather heavy, but
they supposed it to be full of plates.
The basket was placed on end and a
leather portfolio placed on the top to
form a table.
Suddenly they were startled to hear
loud cries, which came from the bs.s
