CHAITTlt VIII. ., ,
Before giving an account of tlic in.
trodactioB f Dick to tlio young
Qrjakercii, let mo iitroduco her first
to the reader.
She waa an orphan, and had for
one time past lived with her aunt
and unele the good Qaakera and
was to them as a daughter. She was,
at the time of which I am writing, 18
years of age, a perfect type of woman
hood, and blessed with a sweetness of
disposition suoh as is rarely fonnd
among girls whose every desire has
been anticipated by kind and indul
gent parents or guardians. Most
younp persons aro spoiled by too much
indulgence. But hero was a young
lady, possvsscd of nut brown hair, lu
minous hascl eyes, fair complexion, of
medium lio'ght, and with one of tho
Smost, expressive countenances which it
,fcad flfer been my good fortuno to
meeti Then, too, tho swoct music of
her veioe fell upon tho ear with that
degreo of rhythm that caused one to
feel that eyqry sentence as it dropped
from her lips was but a component
part of somo grand poem; somo de
lightful composition in which was
' brtathed soft yet strong and healthy
sentiments of pure affeotioc, sympathy
and love for all tho human 'race.
I doubt muoh if this young lady
was oonseious of the excellence of her
physical; mental and moral make-up.
I hid already learned enough of hor
history to know that she had been
carefully cdueated and fitted for the
adornment of sooiety. Sho seemed to
be wholly alive to tho pleasuro and
happiness of others, losing sight of
her own surroundings only as she
sought to mako them subserve tho in
terests of thoso with whom she came
in contact. She was modest, retire-
ing, and at tho aame timo vivacious,
fall of lifo' and sociability.
.The reader may wonder why it was
that I did not woo this young lady for
myself, instead of looking upon her as
a suitable companion for Dick,
Well, to tell tho truth, I, like many
another young man, had a pet aspira
tion of my own; au aspiration which
I had up to that time never divulged
to any one, not even to Dick.
I had from my early boy-hood boon
infatuated with the thought that ,1
should ono day add my name to the
already too long list of heroes who
havo sought to cxploro the north pole
regions. And in order that thoro
might be no unnecessary impediments
to my becomiog a great explorer, I
determined not to fall in lovo with
some pretty girl and join her fato to
my very doubtful one as such explorer.
Then, too, having oome to believe that
this noble girl waa in every way suit
ed to the manlv tastes of mv absent
friend, Diok Nailor. 1 would havo
felt liko a orliniual bad I selfishly
tried to appropriate this real treasure
to myself. It may seem improbable
that one should forego the happiness
of beooming the partner for lifo of
such a rare specimon of femininity,
but in this instance I certainly did,
governed as I havo already said by
this double incentive, viz: for Dick'a
sake and for tho sako of carrying out
my pot aspiration to become an ex
plorer. Naomi Sutherland for suoh was
her name mado an impression on my
mind as she aroso that day frem her
sewing oh air, where she had been for
hours stitching away at a dress for an
, old lady who had the misfortuno to bo
too poor to hiro hor work done, to re
ceive an introduction to Diok, who
had entered hor prosenco for thn first
time, and who stood in all his manly
' grandeur, and yet with a flush upon
his cheek such as I had nover bofore
detected on a similar occasion; such
an impression as shall nover bo effaced
from my memory, I trust, until tho
last flickering ray of earthly light
ahall have eoasod to illumine the
page of hiatery on which the fair
namo of Naomi Sutherland adorns.
Naomi rjeeived Dick with that
rrinidcnly modesty peculiar to young
women of real rcfinment. But I
could not fail to notioc that into hor
eyes eamo an expression fiuoh nj I
had not observed in thorn up to this
time, and began to feel that my pro-
photlo yision of love at first sight was
about to materialize. ,
I'iiad not many days to wait until I
saw tho vision become a reality; saw
unmistakably that Cupid had sent his
golden tipped arrows with unerring
aim dcop into tho hoarts of this grand
good man and this nolle woman.
have from my youth up abhorred
all soft sontimentalism, behoving, as
1 ever havo, that a great proportion of
ihe protestations of lovo wo hoar so
much about is but the hollow vapor
iigs of diseased minds.
But here was a demonstration of
tho blessedness of a love born of
heaven; a love such as God hath or
dained; a love purely unselfish, grand
aid almost if, not altogether, incom
prehensible to those who boheld it
only in others, but w"ho had not Tast
ed of its sweetness for themsolvcs.
Dick and Naomi road togother,
walked together, played and sang to
gether, and drank together from I ho
samo blessed fountain of lovo.
And here though at this long dis
tanoo of both timo and place from tho
scenes and experiences of thoso fow
bright days whoso happenings I am
trying to narrate, allow mo to Ictvo
upon record my gratitudo to the Au
thor of all good, for this divino some
thing callod lovo; that spirit born of
heaven which permeates tho souls of
men, womon and innocent children.
I havo oomo to tho point whero I havo
all faith in tho spirit of love, regard
ing it as tho very foundation prinoiplc
on which stands securely not only civ
il law, but tho homo, tho grand intel
lectuality of tho human raoo, and tho
futuro dostioy of us all after wo shall
have passed boyond our prcsont ap
I belicvo tho passion of tho soul to
be, when in conformity with the law
of Qod, as sacred in tho mind of God
as aro His promises. Is it not so that
God's kingdom is chiefly composed of
lovo? I insist that lovo is tho ruling
passion of the soul. Hatred is a
strong and fearful passion, but not so
strong as not to yield to tho gentle,
subtle, yet all powerful, Ml consuming
influence of pure lovo.
Divines may talk about tho great
love of God and His Christ, and do
oiare that no man can lovo his fellow
until aftor he has learned to lovo tho
Deity, but after all they cannot get
over the fact that no man has as yet
been able to lovo God, until after hav
ing tasted of that loyo which God or
dainod should bo felt by mortals for
one anothor. Says ono of tho bible
writers: "For how can a man love
God Cwhom ho hath not soon, and
hato his brother whom ho hath seen?"
I firmly boliovo that without first
having loved our fellows, it would be
impossible to lovo God.
And I give it further as my belief
that nine-tenths of tho religious in
structors of tho present ago aro wast
ing timo in their fruitless efforts to
conycrt tho pcoplo by appealing to
them to fall in lovo with tho Deity.
I believo that tho chief ingredient in
the Christian rolieion is lovo not to
God, but lovo for our fellows; and
when I listen to tho appeals of tho
Christian ministry falsely so called
in many instances to sinners to give
tholr hearts to tho Lord, and love
Him, I feel that it is but a waste of
time, so long as thoso sinners have
not beon taught that tho Supreme
commandment is that "Ye lovo ono
Doubtless our first conception of
love is tho demonstration of tint
great prinoiplo on tho part of ono or
more of our follows.
But as I am not writing a work on
moral ethios, but am simply recording
tho happonings to a limited number
of my fallow beings, and giving some
of their experiences, I beg pardon for
tho abovo digression, and shall again
take up tho thread of my narrative
whero it fell, and endeavor to weave it
into tho woof of my story,
Ono delightful afternoon as Diok
and Naomi woro out walking and on
joying tho effcots of the boautlful sun
shine as it came subducdly through i
sort of hazo peculiar to Indian suui
mcr, and while all seemed to tlicso two
happy young souls but ono eternal
day of blt'bscdncsg, thoy camo of a
sudden in night of a throng of men,
womon and children who had' congre
gated at one of tho most publlo street
corners, and without a thought of any
danger of an interruption of thoir day
dreams, they soon found themselves
in tho vory midst of this strango as
sembly. But they soon discovered
that tho oauHO of tho commotion orig
inated from a great strapping fellow
who sat perched upon a seat in a
market wagon, and who had wantonly
and maliciously driven his strong
team into that of an old colored man,
who with his frail looking old wifo
had but a fow momenta beforo been
driving along the streets on their way
to tho market there to disposo of a
weeks accumulation of eggs, butter
and vegetables, and had so jostled
their poor littlo rickety wagon as to
send their produots of tho farm and
dairy into tho filth of tho muoh neg
lected street, Then to add insult to
injury this spocimen of brutality sat
upon his torch and gave vent to a
string of abusive epithots, calling tho
poor old peoplo niggers, and oursing
tho day wherein president Lincoln
had struck the shackles off tho limbs
of near four million souls. I bad
beon over to tho post office, but on be
holding tho crowd at tho corner had
hurridly crossed tho street and arrived
just in timo to sco the big blackguard
remove a quid of tobacco from his
cavernous mouth and bespatter tho
faco of tho poor old necrcss with the
loathsome article just as sho was
crawling out from under his horses
feet whero sho had fallen when so
rudely jostled by tho stronger tenm
of tho bruto who drove it. In my ex
citement I had not noticed DioK's
rrcscnco, but all of a sudden saw him
leap from tho sidewalk, place his
hands on tho wagon box, spring into
tho wagon and with a single blow
knock tho vulgar teamster off of the
scat, in the mud below. "Bravol"
cried a one-lcugod soldier, and then a
shout went up from tho orowd.
Dick sprang out just in timo to meet
tho now infuriated villian who came
at his antagonist liko a wounded bi
son, but was met by Diok's good right
nst, and sent sprawling upon tho
ground. Again lie mado a lungo at
Diok, and again did he go down, but
this timo to lie very low in tho gutter
until pulled out by a trio of policemen
who had just then oomo upon the
scene. They wcro about to arrest
Diok as well as the big duffor, but
were cmplorcd by tho old colored
woman not "fo do dcah Lawd's sake
to 'rest an take to do jail, do brcssod j
gen leman who had don stopped do
mouf of do ditty blackguard what has
don' gon an' knocked us all into do
mud." For onco in tho history of
tho strango things that do sometimes
happen, bo it recorded that these gen
tlemen of the star turned thoir atten
tion to tho mud-besmoared, woe-bo-gone
Icoking creaturo whom thoy had
just dragged out of the gutter, and
mado no attempt to arrest Diok.
Diok, assisted by Naomi, lent a help
ing hand at trying to save somo of
tho goods of tho old pcoplo whoso
hearts wero well-nigh bursting with
grief over tho loss. After gathering
up a portion of the rolls of butter, un
broken eggs, cabbages, and othor
stuff and restoring it to tho littlo
wagou, Naomi slippod a handful of
bright silver coin into tho hands of
tho old lady, and, touching Diok on
tho arm whispered that they would
better return home.
I shall nover forget how noblo Diok
looked as he passed through the orowd,
and how supremely happy looked tho
swoet young lady who for tho very first
time bo far as I know leaned gently
upon tho arm of her escort.
That evening wo all spent together
at l'hineas Bloomers', and a joyful
evoning it was. When I look back to
that one particular evening, and re
membor how littlo did wo suspect that
beforo another such should bo enjoyed
by us collectively for many, many
months, lam thankful that no such
thought at the timo crcptin to turn our
hoppinoss into forebodings. Thcro wo

old wife, Namoi, Dick's affianced, (as I
aftorwardj learned that sho really was)

this nnrrativo, be it never so homely
We sat until late in tho evening,
talking, listening to Naomi at the pi
ano, and to tho pure fluto-liko voico of
tho brido that was to be, and to tho
full manly voice of her future husband.
We took our leave at last, and return
ing to our hotel, wcro soon sleeping
soundly, Next morning wo awoke
early, and after breakfast strolled out
over town for our accustomed walk,

Tho sun is said to revolve on its axis
in n littlo moro than twenty-live days, but
this is all guess work, and the evidenoe
supporting it is very weak. As vre fnce

tin spots movo toward our right hand,
toward what is west on our earth, but if
we wero on tbe Bun, the spot movement
would be toward the oast, precisely as, in
this latitude, the high and low baromo
ten, storm centers, movo eastward.
Thoso spot movements are all tho evi
dences the astronomers havo as to the
rovolution of tho sun on its axis. If
these spots were caused by something
attached to the solid body of the sun,
then thoy would revolve with thBt solid
portion, but this cannot be the case.
It must be remembered that tho Bun
and nil tho planets, except the earth and
Mara, are covered with dense cloud, nnd

them. The Bun's atmosphere, it only in

that mountain peaks could exist 121,000

The spots on tho sun revolve in two

south latitude. These facts annihilate
the sun-spots as evidence of tho enn'a
period of rotation. No court could ac
cept such conflicting evidence. Think
of it: The spots make a revolution near
the equator in two days, less time than
on tho parallel midway between tho polo
nnd the equator, and our astronomors

fact that the spots do not all rowilvo

attached to the body ot the bud, and
therefore do not indioato its period of ro
