That was not his real name, yon
lenow; but only a name liiven him by
Ada and inc. His real name was Percy
Dana named for our father. Percy's
father was Father Willard's dearest
friend; audivhcn he died, Percy came
to Jive with us in our dear old Glouces
ter home by the sea.
The large stone house, with its vine
covered walls, its wide, sunny windows
looking toward the ocean how plainly
I can see it to-night, as I sit lonely,
listening to the dreary November rain.
A picture of home on such a nij-ht as
this comes to mo now. I sec my father
sitting in his largo easy-chair, drawn
close to the hearth, lliere is an open
Bible on his knees, and he is reading in
a low voice to mother, who sits at his
right hand, quietly knitting. There is
a pleasant fire in the ample fireplace
and the hickory logs burn and crackle
cheerfully. Percy is sitting with Ada
at the old round table, reading. I am
studying my "Virgil;" but I look up
occasionally at the bright young faces
that I love so dearly. Percy is strong
and tall and cornel. His face is not
handsome, but it is a fine face. The
mouth indicates gentleness and is a
pleasant mouth to look at; butthe eyes,
tinder a broad white forehead, are Per
cy's chief claim to beauty. No one
could ever tell their color, for it was
ever changing now from hazel to gray,
and now from gray to black. m I was. al
ways glad when Percy laughed or
smiled; for when in repose his eyes
were the saddest ljiave ever seen in a
It was on the evening of which I
have spoken that we first tried the
opera of "Bobby Shafto." Ada and
Percy had finished their reading, and I
mT lesson, when Ada proposed wo
should look over some music which
Undo Will had Kent us from New York.
Among tho collection we found thi3
pretty opera. Ada took it to the piano
and tried parts of it here and there; and
then, turning to Percy and me, said:
"Why can we not give it? Percy, you
shall bo Bobby Shafto, and you, Helen,
shall he the heroine."
But t said, quickly: "Oh! no, Ada, I
am taller and older than Percy, and
have not half so sweet a voice as your
own." Andso the matter was decided.
Wo gave it one November evening,
in the great oak parlors. Some of tho
Gloucester boys and girls came up to
assist us; and wo were listened to by a
large and delighted company of old and
After tho supner was over and neigh
bors and friends had all left us, wo
gathered around the lire, to talk over
the events of the night. Ada's cheeks
were s; ill glowingauu hcrfair, sweeteyes
were bright, as she sat on a stool at our
feet, looking dreamily into the tiro.
"I was very proud of you to-night,
little Ada," said Percy; "and in tho
character of Bobby Shafto, I pitied
myself when I was obliged to go to sea
and leave you."
Ada looked up then, and her face was
very fair and girlish in tho firelight.
"Oh! but, Percy,-! did really havo to
cry when the tidings came: Bobby
Shafto's lost at sea!' It all seemed so
real. And when they came with tho
glad song 'Bobby; Shafto's found at
l sea!' I was so glad I nearly forgot to
sing. Wc will always call you Bobby

dare have you go on the wa-
ior fear vou would never,
s As I looked down at Ada, I saw that
her eyes were full of tears. Percy re
garded her for a moment with a "look
full of gentleness, and said:
"Ada, the good Father will watch
over us on sea, as on land," and then,
as the hours waned, he kissed us good
night; but he kissed Ada with exceed
ing tenderness, and let his hand rest a
moment caressingly upon her bowed
A little later, and wo stood, with our
anus around each other, looking out
into tho night. The sea lay calm, a
ribbon of moon-light gilding its dark,
mysterious bosom; and we could hear
the quiet washing of the waves upon
the beach. All was still, serene; and
as we looked something of the peace of
the night stole into our hearts, and
then we went quietly to rest.
To-night I cannot help thinking of tho
ast. -The wind whistles through the
caflesd trees outside, and the rain beats
1ersistently against the window-panes,

Bobby Shafto, as Ada and I had con
tinued to call Percy, had been studying
civil engineering, and he had accepted
a. profitable engagement, which would
take him to aiar-olt-city in bouth Amer
ica. We all protested against a venture
which would separate us so widely;
but, finally, father said, if it was for
-A Percy's best interest, he should be glad
for him, and for his sake submit resign

-iiome. He was to have gone on the
very day of which I have spoken; but

and who was to have accompanied
im was taken suddenly ill; and so we
ere all glad that the day ot parting
s, at least, postponed, in the early
minff of that day Percy and Ada
nt together once more down to the
ich. I stood and watched them as
ey walked away. A soft south wind
blowing, ana it played gently with
a's fleecy carls. The morning was
sweet-scented and sunlit. By the time
thev had returned, however, clouds
had risen, full of. threatening. But in
Bobby Shafto's eyes there was "a light
that never was on land or sea," Ana it
seemed as if Ada's swjiet face had stolen
some of the morning's rosy light
The key to the secret was 'Bobby
Shafto's little goldring on my sister's
fair, small hand.
Jb-ifLse&rcsiv congratulated them
"on their escape from the rain, which
now began to fall in heavy sheets, when
our attention was arrested by the loud
ringing of the bell. In answering the
, summons we found three sailors at the
1 door, who asked for the loan of our
boats. A pleasure-party had gone out
' of me naroor early that morning, and,
as some anxiety was felt bv their
friends for their safety since the storm

Percy left the house, and soon returned
with a strong pair of oars and dressed
ready to breast the tempest. He offered
to accompany them and render what
evcr -assistance he could.
Laying my hand upon his arm, I
" Percy! Percyl Must yon, will you
go and risk a life so dear to us all?"
But Adaclung to him, weeping, and
with plaintive entreaty besought him not
to venture out on the angry sea.
Kissing her quietly, he said, with an
air of unwonted composure, trust and
faith: "God will take care of me,
little Ada. And now, good-bye."
Ada, still detaining him. said: " No,
no! Not good-bye, Bobby Shafto. Say
Auf wialcrchcn, Percy."
"Auf triclcrschcn."' ho called back,
in a brave, cheery voice, as he waved
his -hand and was gone.
Tho storm grew louder and fiercer!
the waves dashed high on the rocks;
and thick darkness, almost like that of
midricht. closed in upon ti3. Father sat
witli his head bowed, and we knew that
he was praying. Mother and Ada and
I stood with our faces pressed against
the window panes, an agony of sus
pense in our hearts which found ev-
nrcsaion onlv in our hairtrerd faces
At leugth'the day died, and the dark
ness of night fell over the face of earth
and sea like a veil of mourning.
The old clock which stood in the cor
ner, and which had kept up its cease
less, somber tick! tick! during these
long hours of silence and unspoken fears
and forebodings, struck the hour of
twelve, when the sound of approaching
footsteps was heard. Then came a
knock at the door. To the almost fran
tic demand of father, "Where is my
bov?" the response which came from
the lips of the strong men who stood
belore him was mingieu wun sous 01
sympathy and sorrow.
; The boat was overturned when we
were not far from the shore, and we all
struck out for the beach. Wo thought
Percy, as he was an expert swimmer, was
just behind us: but on reaching lanu,
he was nowhere to be seen. We called
but tliere came.no answer. And we all
plunged back intothesea;butoursearch
was vain. Perchance lie rcaeneu ins
shore further down the harbor."
It was some such
mesarc as this
they brought us. 1 remember only its
sad import; for Ada turned to me with a
cry of agony, exclaiming, as she threw
herself into my arms: Bobby Shafto's
lost at sea!"
"But, darling," said I, "don't you
remember the after-words of tho song
'Bobby Shaflo's found at sea
willin". the morninir shall bring our
Bobby Shafto back to us again."
In the gray of the early dawn Ada
was gone, and we found her kneeling
beside our loved, lost Percy. His brave
young face was upturned to the morn
ing sun. The ebbing tide played about
his feet and the soft wind gently lifted
his fair hair from a brow upon which
death had set his remorseless signet.
There w:ts a restful peace upon the
dear, boyish face, and we knew that,
as for Bobby Shafto, "God had taken
care of him."
The fire burns low, the lights grow
dim and to my lonely heart comes a
whisper, "Auf wic'dcrschcn." They
were the last words on Ada's lips, for
she soon went to meet Bobby Shafto.
It was hard for my rebellious heart to
trust in those days. It seemed a strange.
cruel Providence that should call our j
dear Percy out on the treacherous waves,
and take him from us in thu Hush of j
his bright young life. And when Ada,
my sister, left me, my cup of bitterness !
was full. But God knew best. He
took them to Himself. I
And so to-night, with chastened heart
and with faitli and hope, I catch a i
glimpse of the faces of the dear depart
ed ones, and, reaching forth my hands
to the sweet vision, I echo back to them
their words of parting: "Auf icicilcr
schen" Good-by till we meet again, in
the land "that is fairer than day."

Characteristics of "cw Zealand.
I have been quite interested recent
ly in New Zealand, in a geological
sense, and have been quite surprised to
find out what an attractive place
in somo respects it is. It is
about the size of England, and has
little pieces of all parts of the world
huddled together within its boundaries.
It lias mountains wrapped in snow and
infested with glaciers like tho Alps
(one peak. Mount Cook, rises over 18,
000 feet above the level of the sea) ; it
has a temperate zone of charming
plains, valleys and table lands; it has
the barren and rocky hills of Maine;
it has the dismal swamp of Florida; it
has tropical forests, including the lux
uriant and graceful fern tree and cab
bage palm, large inland lakes and noble
rivers; it has volcanic mountains vom
iting fire and lava, ge'sers liko those
of Iceland, hot springs and warm lakes,
and it has, besides, features peculiar to
itself wild and deep gorges make an
impassable division between some dis
tricts immense rolling plains covered
with waving ferns; on one side Aus
tralia, the largest island in the world
(about the size of the United States);
on the other the lovely islands of the
South Sea, the most beautiful region on
the globe, coral bound aud ocean born,
vividly colored, affording subsistence
without labor, with a delicious, dreamy
languor in the air and alow monotone
of surf, hinting vague remembrances of
the throbbing vibrating ocean heart
from which they sprang.
Coal is found in New Zealand in
abundance, also limestone, silver, cop
per, tin and iron, gold-bearing quartz
reels, gold fields and golden sand
which has been carried down by the
rivers to the sea, and with every tide
thrown back upon the shore, so rich is
the deposit, making literal the ex
pression, "golden sands of the sea
shore." Heaps of gold arc sometimes
found lying among the rocks or loose
ly covered with earth (gold was dis-
covered.in 1852, and since that time
2.6,000.000 have been exported up to
1874). Snakes do not exist. Over
100 years ago Captain Cook visited the
island. He found no animals except a
rat and a green lizard. He left a num
ber which multiplied rapidly. Birds
existed and still exist in great num

John Bright and American Poets
The purity of John Bright' s English
has often been a surprise, to critical
hearers, who knew that he had en
joyed in early life but limited advan
tages of education. Even Mr. Glad
stone, with his University training and
the literary pursuits of a long life, has
not the command of such a pure and
sinewy English style as that which
marks the speeches of the Lancashire
manufacturer, who never went to col
lege or wrote a book. In an interview
with an American friend recently. Mr.
Bright referred to a habit which ex
plains the origin of his good English
style. He has always read, carefully,
the best authors, and especially the
poets. For many years he has read a
poem every night before retiring. He
added a remark complimentary 'to our
American poets. Of late years, he
said, his evening readings have been
confined chiefly to American poets,
among whom" Longfellow, Bryant;
Whittier and Lowell were foremost.
English poets are too obscure and in
volved to be enjoyed, or to serve as
models. Poetry, he thought, like all
speech, should be intelligible, and leave
no reader in doubt of its meaning. In
this respect Americans arc much su
perior to their English rivals.-:-Youth? s

while such a conversation wa going

What Thej Knew 4,000 Years Ag.
From one of thews book's, compile
after the manner of our modern ency
clopaedias, and the compilation of
which is shown to have been made more
than 2,000 years B. C, it has been as
certained, what has long been supposed,
that Chaldea was the parent-land of as
tronomy; for it is found, from this com
Silation and from other bricks, that the
abylcnians catalogued th,e stars, and
distinguished and named the constella
tions; that they arranged the twelve
constellations Chat form our present
zodiac to show the course of the sun's
path in the Heavens; divided time into
weeks, months and years; that they di
vided the week, as we now have it,
into seven days, six being days of labor
and the seventh a day of rest, to which
they gave a name from which we have
derived our word "Sabbath." and
which day, as a day of rest from all la
bor of. every kind they observed as rig
orously as the Jew or the Puritan. The
motion of the heavenly bodies and the
phenomena of the weather were noted

beck Paradise on the Kafflr'j aterl.
The word "Ghazi" has come to man
in Western eyes something very differ
ent from its legitimate signification. It
originally meant a couqueror. or great
hero, and in this sense it i used in
modern Turkey. Osman Paha was
dubbed "Ghazi" when his splendid
resistance to the Ktisjian saved for a
time the fate of his country, and the title
is one held in the highest respect bv
Mohammedans. From "conqueror"'
thu meaniug has passed into lower
grades, one of commonest being "a
gallant soldier" (especially combating
ni!idc!ri); ami at ta-t, in the common
course of event, it has been appropria
ed in tho all-comprehensive vocabulary
of the English language with a distinct
and localized meaning. To us now a
Ghazi is simply a iu:iu upon whom
fanaticism has had so powerful an
effect that all physical fear of death is
swaniped in his ilesiro to take the life
"of a Kallir, and, with his soul purified
by the blood of the unbeliever, to be
translated at once to Paradi-o, A true
Ghazi counts no odds too great to face,
no danger too menacing to bo braved;
tho certainty of death only atlds to his
exultation, and, as in the case of other
madmen, desperation and insensibility
to consequences add enormously to his
muscular powers and endurance. To
kill such a mau is sometimes so diificult
a task at close quarters that our men
have learned to respect their peculiar
mode of lighting, aud a ritle bullet at a
fair distance checks lltn GhaPs course
before he can close upou his assailants
with the terrible sharp knifo he knows
so well how to use. If ever Afghan
were a Ghazi, as I once said during the
siege of Sliurpur, our defenses would
have been carried aud enormous slaugh- 1
ter would havo followed on both shies;
but Ghazis arc few and far between,
though a spurious imitation is not un
common. This imitation is often taken
for the real article, whereas phang or
some other stimulant is the motive '
power, and not desperate fanaticism.
1'iuN misuse of the word "Ghazi" is
strikingly seen in the accounts of tho
last war, forty years ago. Wo arc told '
of bands of Ghazis, many thousand '
strong, harassing the retreating army
aud cutting off stragglers ; and tho.-c
Ghazis are always spoken of :is being
quite out of the control of Akbar- ;
Khan. If they had been true Ghazis
they would have made short work of j
our little army long before it reached:
the Khurd Cabul. To see how
thousands of Ghazis are alw.ivs beiuir !
spoken of, one would imagine they
were a powerful clan, similar to tho
Ghilzais, Kohistansor Afrids; but prac- '
tical acquaintance with tho form fanati
cism assitmes about Cabul shows only
too clearly that out of a crowd of 50,
000 armed fanatics, such as lately held
Cabul, not ono in a hundred rises to tho
supreme rank of a Ghazi. They are
not born and bred to tho vocation ;"
chance makes them what they aro, ami .
our men know that a stray spark of en
thusiasm may kindle their fanaticism
and send theiii into our mitlst.
The Ghazi is the creature of the mool
lah. The hitter's eloquence is listened t
to by some more than usually su-eepti- ',
bio villager, whose enthusiasm in
aroused to fovcr heat by a glowing story
of a Ghazi who went out into the iutidel
camp, cut down two or three Kaffirs
and died the death of a martyr, his soul '
going straight to tho laps of "the houris,
and nis name living forever among
his kindred. Shall he not emulate
such a glorious example. so
that his children and his children's '
children may hand down his name to i
ail generations as a Ghazi Allah-din a
"Champion of the Faith?" Tho
moollah s preaching has had its effect,
and a Ghazi has been called into being.
If a great jehad is being preached, that
manwi 1 always be in tho fore-front of
the battle, antf will probably carry tho
standard of his clan, bles-cd by the
moollah who has aroused the tribes
men. But a few weeks ago the arch
moollah, Muski Alam, sent out his mes
sage from Sharkh, and how well it was
responded to wo arc living witnesses, j
With Ghazis in their midst to lead the
timorous, and moollahs alwavs at hand
to fan their fanaticism, Mohammed
Jan's rabble did wonders. How the
Ghazis acquitted themselves our men
well know, many poor fellows to their '
cost. In the action in the Charden Val- .
ley the standard- bearers rushed in even
whep our cavalry chirgcd, and no more .
reckless rush was ever made. Many '
went down, but about them wore others
equal in desperation. A trooper of the f
rsinth transfixed a man with his lance;
the Ghazi wriggled up like an eel,
grasped the lance with hi- left hand,
and with one stroke of the knife cut
through the lancer's han I and the
tough shaft as it had been nnde of tin
der. Thi3 is not romancing, the troop
er is still living, but minus the fingers
of his right hand: With an
army of such men agaiast us, ecn our
splendid arms aniF steady dis ipline
might avail nothing. But the true
Ghazi is a phenomenon he. at least,
deserves the scientific and sonorous litlo
and even Afghan fanaticism can not
bring forth many, however great may
be the eloquence of the moollahs.

A " spuixc-stvle" circular with a
number of new forms of the duplex
tickets which arc now very widely
used, has been issued. Besides ordinary
tickets to be given by conductors, these
specimens include "half-fare tickets,
special excursion tickets, receipt to
commutera who have left their tickets
at home, stop-over checks and others
of the many forms required in the daily
business of a railroad. In all these are
preserved the special principle of the
duplex ticket, the two halves, one to
be given to the passenger and returned
to the company, the other to be re
tained by the conductor, the two form
ing mutual checks and venchers.
Among the new applications of the
principles are a baggage and freight
check for the Pittsburgh Southern,
showing nature of articles, amount
paid, etc, and the shipper's half form
ing a check or receipt to be delivered
oa receipt of the goods at destination.
Another is a grain warehouse check for
the Lake Shore Hoad. which must be
extremely convenient where a large
business 'is done. On it the warehouse
man can punch off in a minute the date,
kind and amount of gram received, to
be entered afterward at his leisure on
the books, while the shipper exchanges
his half-check for a receipt, and it
forms a voucher for the warehouse
books. These dnplex tickets, in some
of their forms, are now iu use on roads
all over the United States and Canada.
