What ho admires I praise with care;
He censures what I lilntne:
Ilul or a certain dmncl fair
Wodo not think the name.
I think her eyes are azure blue;
He s;iyn "dull jrruy" iiintcu'l.
I call her hair an unburn hue.
hile ho declares 'tis rol.
When her complexion I compare
To roie pink ami white.
He smiles with a KarcoHtio air.
I do not think polite.
Wtiene er her attitudes I praise.
Fo jrrucoul and erect.
He tarca quite languidly and says:
" 8h jM)hes for effect."
I Miy her lljrure i a dream,
A v:8lou maile to wait.
HcHinlles: "Tliiiurs :irc not what they
And winks: " Perhaps 'tis false."
I nlwayH like to hoar her play;
He can't admire her touch.

He thinks hint biuirhs too much.

A SILENT PRE ACHEIi.
Losson Taught tho Old Coaat
Guard by His Spy-Glass.
"Then sometimes," said old Mat
thew Duncan, the coastguard at Tram
bay, "I've thought IM write a book.
I've got so far as to think what color
the cover should be, and that's half the
battle; and I settled it was to bo as like
the Union .lack as tho book folk can
make it, but 1 never get any farther.
I'll loll you sonic of the things I've
seen through this glass, and what I've
thought aboutthem, loo, and if they do
any folk good I'll be all the better
"Now, first of all, you point this
glass over at yonder old bit of ruin on
the clifl's. You can't sec a large black
stone in it. Well, tho focus a'n't right
for your eye; every man must shift it
for himself; but the stone is there "
, "Ay, I see it now. And I sec; a
white cross, a rough dab of paint
"Kighl; when a man sees that 'tis a
sign he has tho focus right and that he
can see as I could, only 1 hope he'll
never get the chance to sec what I saw.
When n man can see that white mark
'tis a sign that he could know one per
son from another if they were standing
at the same place, and that he could
sec all they were doing and, so to
speak, almost hear what they were say
ing. We a'n't quite come to that yet,
but if what folk say who come and
talk to me in the summer-time be true,
we're on our way to it, and wo a'n't
far off cither. Hut now you're sure
that a man standing hero can see what
is going on over Micro?
"Well, fifteen yoars ago come midsummer-day
I was on guard here at
three o'clock in tho morning. I gen
erally gave a look all around with that
glass, and there was nothing at all in
view out to sea; I kept watching a rab
bit that was skipping in and out among
the slones of the old ruin. Presently I
saw it was frightened and ran away,
and I said to myself: 'Now, what's
thai?" for vou know when a man is
long hours in the same place, and there
day after day, he's glad of any thing
that makes a bit of a stir.
"1 hadn't long to wait before I saw
what made the rabbit jump away in
such a hurry; a man and a woman
came out of the ruins and sat down on
some of the loose stones outside. The
man was dark, with a sailor's dress,
and as far as I could make out -and
that. 1 think, was pretty near was
about thirty years of age. lie warn't
the looking man that I'd trust myself
to if I were, a young girl; but no living
man can tell what any living woman
will do or will not do and why she
will do it or will not do it, and that's
a knowledge I've come to by thinking
mid by watching my old woman and
was one of the first thing I was going
to put down in my book. At first these
two wero friendly enough; even if the
glass had been a trillo wrong in the
locus I could have seen that they were
sweethearts; but after they had been
there half an hour or so I saw that the
girl began to move away a little from
him, and when he shifted his seat so as
to gel near her agaiu she made another
"Said I: 'Here's the old story of all
the world, of morning, noon and
night, going on here on the top of this
cliff at four o'clock in the morning.'
"Hut I hadn't time for much think
ing; it took all mj attention to be
watching. There was a quarrel, that
was plain; but, -Pooh!' says L to my
self, 'they'll kiss and bo frieuds in ten
minutes. Well, I waited for the kiss
ing, and then I thought I'd have an
other look round tho ocean; but that
poor girl never got a kiss again.
There was a something in her hand
1'tat he wanted to get, that was plain,
though I couldn't quite make out what
ii was; but whatever it was he snatched
it from her, and sho struck at him in
ii lier anger, and then there was a push-
dag about, but always with her getting
icarer and nearer the edjre of the cliff.
ittl at last 1 saw the man's two arm
ist straight out and over she went!
or twice she hung for a moment
te face of the rock; her dress
in the brambles then. Hut it
for a moment; she was in the
time than it takes for me to
le was full at the time, but
turn, and once it turns it
llmost like the race of a
te man was soon lost to
ic ruins, and though I

" 'Now, sir, savs I to myself, 'what j watek-d liiut wel. I r I wasdtr
shall I do? Shall I report this? I J mined that there should be no mistake;
thought and thought and thought, and
at last i says: 'No. I won't report it
even to my old woman, for if I do
there's no knowing to whom she'll re-
port it ajjiiiii. And the reason I nail
for not doing it was this. Says I to
myself: 'If there's no one missing, and
if the 1-odv never turns up, as I don't
believe it will, people, will say I was
dreaming; it may be they'll say 1 was
drunk; for all I know they may say
I'm mad. I'll just wait and see
whether the body is ever found or not.
Hcsides,' says I to my self, I can't tell
that a murder has lteen committed.
They fell out, there's no doubt of that,
and there was a scuttling; but perhaps
her going over was an accident. I
couldn't .-.wear that, when he thrust
out his two hands he had given her a
push that had ent her over.'
"Well, sir, the burden of this secret
lay heavy on my mind, and as I walked
up and down here on my lonely beat it
began to eat into me. Says 1 t' my
self: 'Matthew Duncan, you know of a
murder and you've never told of it,'
ami it ended in getting a fever, and I
was as near dead as any man could In.
When I came a bit to myself I had the
par-on sent for, and I told him I had a
great load on my mind and wanted to
ease it by telling it to him, and I told
him the whole story from beginning to
end. and our captain I had him in
and told it to him, too.
"Hut the gentlemen only smiled at
what I said. loor fellow,' says one,
the fever's on him still.' 'Ay,' say?,
tho other, 'you see 'tis the same thing
he's been raving on all along.'
"Well. I was very weak and couldn't
talk much, and I was weary with my
earnestness in trying to make them be
lieve what I said, so I just laid back
with my eyes closed ami they thought
I was asleep. Hut I heard them talk
ing, and the captain said: '"I'is a pity,
too, for he's one of the best and sharpest-eyed
men in tho service, and I'm
afraid he'll never be lit for any
thing again.' 'Oh, 'twill work ofl',"
said the minister; 'you may bu sure
when he strengthens up he'll forget
all these fever fancies. You
mustn't think of his leaving the ser
vice. He must get sick-leave for a
while. I've seen many cases a strange
as this and they came round all right
" Well, I made two or three more at
tempts and I tried the doctor: but he
says: ' I'll scud you some strengthen
ing medicine, Duncan, and you'll soon
be all right,1 and he tapped h;s fore
head and says: Fevers make ad
work with our brains.'
"1 saw it was no uti to try and per
suade any of the gentlemen: 1 did my
best, and there now I must leave it.
Hut I warn't quite easy in my mind.
Looking at it now at this distance of
time I think it was my duly to have re
ported it and taken the consequences,
whatever they might have been, but
this I did: I says to myself: 'There is
no knowing what may turn up. by and
by, if this is murder; murder will out,
as the saying is. ami I may not re
member all that ought to be remem
bered by the only man whose eye
saw the deed done;' so I took and
wrote down on a paper what 1 had
seen and hid it carefully away lest it
should come to any one's hand. And
if I died -well, 1 took care that the ac
count, whatever it might be worth,
should not be lost, for 1 marked it out
side: 'When I am dead this paper is to
be given to the minister of the parish,
and no one but himself is to break one
of the. seals upon it.' And to make the
matter as sure as 1 could I put si
seals upon it- every one of them dif
ferent; I borrowed them from far and
near, wherever I could. I put down
the day ami the hour, and the color of
the young woman's dress and the shape
of her hat. and the cut of the man's
beard and whiskers, and the red 'ker
chief he had round his neck: of that I
made special note, for s-afaring men
don't wear that color often. 'Now.
said I, 'I've done all I can. Time will
tell. Hut it i an awful thing for that
man that there has been an eye upon
him that he knew and knows nothing
about, ready to give evidence against
him if the question of a murder turns
up. Folk often think they're not seen
and that there'll be no witnesses
against them; but often I think: 'Ah!
there's one Five at any rate that has
been on you. and there's one Five-witness
against you: go where you will
and do what you will, the testimony of
an Eye-witness is there.' Of course,
sir," said the coast-guard, reverently.
I mean the Great Five above. 1 used
to think myself particular before, but
since this happened I have been ever
so much more particular, for 1 says
to myself: There's some One look
ing, ay. and there's some One
listening; you don't see Him, but He's
there.' and in a way it's made a dif
ferent man of me ever since.
"F'ive years passed." said the old
man. "and the dictor and the parson
and the captain forgot all about this
matter: they didn't 'trouble thu'inselves
much about the ravings of a man in a
fever, as they thought, and 'twas mid
summer morning again and -it was my
turn to be on guard. 1 don't know
what it was that made me keep look
ing continually at the cliff and at that
part of the ruin where you see the
white cross painted on the stone. Hut
every moment 1 feit the glass almost
turning of itself to where I had seen
that poor youug thing zo over the cliff.
'Twas a'most as though I expected to
see something, and thev sav that if one
cxpeets to see something they'll do it
I suppose they think the fany brings
the thing. Well. sir. I did see some
thing. 'Twas the very hour and the
very day when that young woman was
thrown over the cliff for now we
know all abott it and there, coming
out of the ruin, I saw the man ld seen
five years before. 1 knew him in a
moment; he had the same beard and
the same dress and the same kerchie
M I -
j bat this time he was by himself. y
and I kept the glas- on him as a n lie
man would k.ep hi rifle aiming at a
bull's-eye. I could .see him as plainly
as i tee vou now. He was the fame
. man. nut he looked, ay, twenty years
older: Hut he was the same, and I
says to myself: I know ou, but I
never saw a man aire lik vou; vou'ro
the same man, but there's an awful
; change over you. too.'
"Well, air. he looks about him here
and there, and then h takes out of his
pocket a little parcel and puts it under
a stone, ami puts three or four more
over it, and walks on towards the edge
of the cliff. I'p and down lie goes, and
goes through all I saw him 'do live
years ln-fore. and at last and I never
could make this out strugglini: against
it as thourh some one was pushing him
from behind, still staggering nearer
and nearer to the edge, over he leaped,
and he was caught just as that jrirl was,
here and there: and the tide did to hiia
as it did to hT carried the body out
to sea and what with congers and
other greedy lish there were plenty
wailing for him out there. This time
1 determined not to hold my tongue,
so I reported to the captain, who at
first only tapped hi forehead anil said
I must not go into fever again: but the
right.? of it was gone into and found
'I said: 'Captain, have the ruins
searched, and I'll take any one you
name to the spot.'
'"Well. Duncan.' said he. 'IM be
sorry for you to go oil' your head, for
you're my sharp"st-eved man. I'll go
with vou myself, and I will ask tho
mini-ter to go. too.'
"And there, sir, under the very
.stones which I pointed out we found
the parcel, sure enough. It was an old
leather purse wrapped up in a piece of
tarred canvas what looked like a bit
of an old sail, and in it was a ten-pound
note and a piece of paper, and on it
was written in a hand such almost as
a. school-boy would write: 'John
Hindi threw his sweetheart over thi

eve saw him do the deed, and he's I
come here iu the self nine clothe
which he had on that day; he's alway
hearing voices saving that there's sona
one to meet him here.'
"It would look a'mo-t as if there had i
been somebody there t.u-hing him
from behind, from the way he went
over, but 1 -aw noboih; the man was
there alone. There was no one to !
make a row about the matter, for no '
