chill, after the galo), stood Drusilla
"Ward. Her face was bright with the
reflected glory of sky and sea, which
made her almost beautiful. But the
tplendor of the scene was too familiar
to her eyes to long detain her.
She watched for a moment the soli
tary sail in tight a little boat, beating
againsL the wind and turned to leave
the rock. She had come down the
beach, and one could trace her foot
prints all along in the smooth sand, to
the point yonder.
JustbeyoHd rose the chimneys of John
Merrick's old stone house, whence she
As she turned she saw her father,
making his way slowly over the slippery
rocks, and waited for him. Capt. Me
lancthon Ward or Captain 'Lank as
the lirayford people called him, was
neither so young, nor so active, as in
the days when he went, master of the
schooner Nancy Jane, "coasting down
cast," in the fishing season, for "freight
and a market."
i"The rheumatics" had given the
old man many a twinge before he was
ready to leave his active sea-life, to
"make port and cast anchor" in Bray
He quickened his pace a little, when
he saw Drusilla waiting for him. "Glad
you're here, Zillie, to help me up the
bank," he said.
She took one side of the basket of
dripping bivalves, and they left the
beach, taking a steep, stonj path which
led to the level above. Here, a few rods
back, nestling in its own grove of twist
ed apple-trees, stood their cozy home.

"Jim Merrick, maj'be they sent him
word that Hannah was failing," said
Drusilla. " When did she go, Zillie?"
and the old man's voice took a solemn
tone, at the question. " A little after

fell I thought likely." " Was she sen

of the path. " Yes, and seemed happy."

presently, more to herself than to her

Capt. 'Lank limped into the house

a moment to tell her mother how she

She sat down by the window, which
over-looked the wide, beautiful bay, but
jr thoughts were not of the world
about her. She wanted to recall all
that Hannah had said to her the night
before, and to dwell joyfully on the
thought that Burton Allen was not false
and nckle, as he had seemed.
This time last night, when it was
growing dark, and the storm coming
on, Uncle John Merrick came in.
44 Hannah's very poorly to-night," he
said, after tho usual remarks on the
weather, to Capt. 'Lank " her mother

Satisfied with Drusilla's presence, Han

retired. Drusilla, left alone, wondered
why Hannah wanted her to-night instead
It was lonely sitting there, in the dim

down in the pillow. Drusilla knelt
beside the bed, striving in vain to quiet
her own agitation, anxious now to
hear Hannah's story, and 3 et afraid to
have her talk. " I bent Burt that letter,
Zillie," Hannah continued, faintly
44 What letter do you mean, Han

away. Didn't you know? What did
you think it was?" Zillie only shook
her head and hid her faee on the bod.

was weeping silently. It was harder
for her thau she had thought to forgive
the girl who had made such trouble for
her even now she scarcely Knew now
but Hannah was so sorry, and so sick ;
she struggled with her own heart and
said sofUj "1 will forgive you, Han
nah, as God forgives me my own sins."
After a little pause, Hannah asked for
some cordial, which Drusilla gave her,
saying as she carefully laid her back,
44 1 hope you will get well, Hannah."
The sick girl sinilwd sadly and said,
44 do not wish it, but I want to tell
you all about it now. Do you know
what made me sick first, Zillie? It was
just about a year ago now, that father
wanted me to go on an errand, one
night, to your house for him. 1 went
beach way, for the moon was bright,

minute you and Burt went up and sat
down there, almost over my head. I

know, and so I heard every word. Do

her head. Would she ever forget it?
the moonlight on the waves ; their low
plashing on the beach, as the tide rose;
and above all, the words Burt Allen had
spoken which had made her so happy
then so wretched since.
44 While you sat there so happy to
gether," Hannah continued, " 1 could
have killed you both I hated you, and
loved him "so. It Ecemcd as if you
would never go away, and the tide kept
rising, till it came up close to me, and
wet my feet, and my dress."

you, Burt, for keeping me out so long,'
and he said, I'll tell her thru, that Pll

44 And you'll ask Burt to?" "Yes."
44 Then I'm sure God will," and a with
sigh of relief she fell asleep.
Drusilla had been so amazed at this
unexpected avowal, that she could not
realize its truth.

could recall it all, and think of it calm
ly. How could Hannah have sent Burt

recent visit to the capital gave a lecture
on some of the natural curiosities of thc
region ovi-r which he presides and is
cmiaced in exploring. Amonc these
may be mentioned as the most novel a '
mountain of obsidian or volcanic glass, '
and a road made from this material. .
Near the foot of Beaver Lake the ex
plorers discovered this mountain of
glass, which there rises in basalt-like I
columns and countless huge masses j
many hundreds of feet high from a hiss
ing hot spring forming the margin of ;
the lake, thus forming a narrier where
it was very desirable that a wagon
road should be, s the glass barricade ,
sloped for some 3U0 feet high at an an-
gle of 45 deg. to the lake, and its glis- 1
tening surface was therefore impassa- j
blc, there being neither Indian nor game ;
track over it. To make the road, huge '
fires were made asainst the glass to
thoroughly heat and expand it, and then
by dashing cold water from the lake
against the heated glass suddenly cool
the latter, causing large fragments to
break from the mass, which were after
ward broken up by sledges and pick?,
but not without severe lacerations of the
hands and faces of the party, into small
er fragments, with which a wagon-road
one-quarter of a mile long was construct
ed, about midway along the slope, thus
making, it is believed, the only road of
native glass upon the continent.
On reaching the Grand Canyon of the
Gibbon River the explorers found the
eastern palisade, for about two miles in
length, to consist of vertical pillars,
hundreds of feet high, of glistening
black, yellow, mott ed, or banded ob
sidian or volcanic glass.
This obsidian has been and is still
used by the Indians for making arrow I
heads and other weapons and tools, and
the mountain has formed a vast quarry '
for the making of such instruments-or
weapons of a quality and quantity une-
The lecturer gave a graphic descrip- J

There is no way of cooking an apple

By baking I do not mean putting them
into an old tin or iron pan, and thrust

apples and wiped them clean, place
them in an earthen baking-dish with a

A Diphtheritic Worm.
The five-vear-old daughter of Mrs.
Jennie Marsh, of Waverly, who i3 visit- overhearing a childish conversation be
ing friends in Elmira, was taken with tween the two little ones, in which the
diphtheria shortlv after her arrival vouncest aaid to the other that she felt
here last week, and is yet prostrate,
but doing well. Yesterday morning
the mother,looking in the child's threat,
saw a micrococcus moving. She tooic it
and another out. They are now at
Flood's drug store, and can be seen by
whoever desires. They are easily seen
by the naked eye, though a glass helps
one to the 44 true inwardness" of the ,
critters. The largest one i3 fully one
quarter of an inch long, covered with
hair, with a head something like a cat
erpillar, taperinir body, and long hairy
tail. Its body is formed in rings. Its
color is about that of one of those dark
yellow 44 thousand legged" worm3 found
under old hoards and stones. The
smaller one is about one-sixteenth of an
inch long, bsinsr whitish in color, and
requiring the glass to briag out its
44 beauty" of conformation. It U not a

A Little fJhost Story.

of tho respective ages of 8 and 9 year.
had been stavinrr in the country on a
visit to her sistcr-in law; but having
taken a house near Iondon, she wml
tho two children with their nurse off by
an early train, following herself by one
a few hours later. Toward the evening
of the same day, one of thc little gtrln
walked into a room of the house which
they had quitted in the morning, where
a cousin, to whom she was much attach-
ed, was sitting at his studies, and said to
him : 44 1 have come to say good by.
Walter; I shall never see yon again."
Then kissing him she vanished from the
room. The young man wa greatly
startled and astonished, as he hail him

nure off bv the raorninjr train. At this
: very time of the evening both the chii-
day after she was buned, the poor rwv
reaved mother was anxiously waiting

woke up from a kind of stupor, and cx-
claimed, "U, loot, mamma: iooc ai

, foot of the bed. Mrs. G saw notb-
, ing, but heard soft, sweet music, wb!ch

cfaUd exclaimed, "U, dear mamma,
there i3 Minnie!" She smiled, and ap
peared greatly pleased. At this moment
M"- G distinctly heard a voice say
) 4I Come, dear Ada; I am waiting for
